I don't think the website "republicansforrape" is very fair, considering I hardly think ALL Republicans feel the same way as the congressmen and women, or are "for rape."

That's not what the website is implying. The website is saying THOSE Republicans certainly seem to be for rape. Not sure how else their dissent could be construed other than that.
I'm not saying their dissent could be construed in another way. I'm just saying the phrase "Republicans for Rape" sounds a certain way. You can't tell me if that if someone had a website called "" that you wouldn't find that to be very stereotypical of ALL Democrats, even if the website was then all about certain Dems who believed in it. Just like I'd have a problem with the phrase "libertariansforanarchy" or whatever.
