girl scouts are letting in trans* girls and letting girls replace God with whatever they want in the pledge, also they use cookie income to support abortion and LGBT agendas
boy scouts are just now allowing gays in, officially in january, but gay leaders are still banned and they’re talking about segregation on camping trips, with gays and straights in different tents. also they still ban atheists,
girl scouts: 10000 boy scouts: 0
well I guess all the gay boys are going to be excited about being together in the same tent, right?
I’m dancing at a nightclub
when someone behind me
places a hand on my shoulder.
I assume it’s a friend until
the hand slides down my chest.
Boiling with gin and rage
I grab his wrist, whip around,
and punch him in the jaw.
It doesn’t land well—
I’ve never hit anyone before—
so I punch him in the gut,
just for good measure.
I look at him doubled over and spit
Never do that to a woman again,
and then I run. My friends laugh in the cab:
You punched a guy!
but I sit silent and burning.
In Crown Heights, in Union Square,
in South Williamsburg: men leer and
whistle and smack their lips.
I ignore them, or flip them off,
or tell them I’m married.
When they purr que guapa
I yell callate and they all laugh.
I can’t tell if they’re laughing at me
for being a white girl speaking bad
Spanish, or at the idea that anything
I say might actually shut them up.
In my impotent rage I dream of a world
where I am not public property. I would
start wars for my right to walk down a street
unafraid, a thousand wars for a single day
in which my body belongs to me alone.
An army raised against each cat call. A bullet
for every man who ever told me to smile.
"next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights"
A guy on OKcupid sent me a message asking: what kind of books do you “like?”
why is like in quotation marks? is he implying I’m only pretending to like books? maybe I’m being a nitpicky copy editor about people’s punctuation. but also, there’s a section on my profile in which I go into great detail about what kind of books I like, so…
this is why I hate everyone.
Guess what. I'm pro-life and I consider myself to be a feminist. Contrary to popular belief, these are not contradictory.
How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you’ll trap people in abusive relationships?
How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing some people will never be able to escape their abusers?
How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you’ll bring violence onto some people from family, friends, or partners because they got pregnant?
How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing people will die that would otherwise have survived their pregnancy had they been able to get an abortion?
How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you’re potentially causing more trauma to rape victims? (Rape exceptions are ineffective shit so don’t even start.)
How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you’ll cause people to lose their jobs from pregnancy related causes?
How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you will harm some trans and non-binary individuals who can get pregnant?
How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you will cause some people’s mental illnesses to worsen temporarily or permanently?
How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you’ll cause some people to drop out high school or college? (Wage gap increase, anyone?)
How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you’ll cause people to maim, harm, or poison themselves to self abort?
How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you’ll push some people deeper into poverty or make it harder/impossible to get out?
How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you’ll have people forced or coerced into placing a child for adoption?
How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you’ll cause some people to be disowned by their friends and families?
How can you consider yourself a feminist by denying people able to become pregnant their bodily autonomy, something they’ve been fighting for and are still fighting for for millennia?
Pro-life feminism is an oxymoron.
*tears and cheers for this*
HAHAHAHA THOSE POOR SPERM sorry I can’t feel bad about your squandered sperm
I feel like the prolife movement is better than you let on. There's a prolife club at my high school and last year a girl got pregnant and they protected her from the people who kept calling her a slut and supported her as she made the decision to carry the baby full term. And I think too many people think that abortion is the "easy way out" because of its prevalence now and I don't think it is and I think the prolife movement helps people to realize that.
You’re using a small anecdote to try and convince me that the anti-abortion movement as a whole is a decent movement. I’m not convinced. I’m glad these people defended her and offered her support, but I don’t find it that heartwarming. What if the girl got an abortion instead? Would they have supported her? Would all the same people be defending her when someone calls her a baby killer or would they join in? If she felt sad or confused after the abortion, would they offer unbiased support and not make her feel worse?
The anti-abortion movement has a lot of issues that a small, half decent pro-life club can’t erase. Crisis Pregnancy Centers are a big one. They are notorious for luring pregnant people in and telling lies about abortion; they’re known for using manipulation as well to convince someone to stay pregnant. At worst, there’s been reports of them coercing people into placing their child up for adoption; this includes people who wanted to parent or were strongly considering going back on the adoption. Clinic protesters are another big one. Yes, some protesters just sit out there mild-mannerd and holding a non-graphic sign. On the other hand you’ll have ones screaming obscenities at stressed out pregnant people, holding graphic signs and even going so far as to assault escorts or pregnant people.
I’d wager few people go into an abortion thinking it’s the easy way out. People decide it’s just the best option for them.
And the thing about pro-choicers is that they will (or should) support you and defend you if you choose to carry the pregnancy OR if you choose to end it. That’s the point of the whole “choice” thing.
This is something Ive wondered for a while and Id love to see peoples thoughts on this.
A non-married heterosexual couple decide to have a child together. They are in a stable, comitted, long-term relationship. They have sex until finally the woman is pregnant. Both of them are happy.
But early into the pregnancy the woman has second thoughts. She doesnt like what her body is going through, does not want to give birth PERIOD, and ultimately does not want to be a mother. She realizes she made a huge mistake. She changes her mind and wants an abortion.
Her boyfriend is upset. He wants the child like they both originally agreed on. He is willing and able to care for the child and thinks she shouldnt abort his son/daughter without his consent because they both sat and talked about this for months. He feels she should have the child and let him raise it.
She tells him its her body, not his, and that she has every right to change her mind because she is the one that has the final say.
Now. This is not a pro-choice/pro-life debate, nor is it a feminist vs mra thing. I am simply curious to see where tumblr stands.
Does she have an “obligation” to stay pregnant and birth the child? And does her boyfriend have a say?
Please mature/civil. I really am curious to see people’s thoughts.
She has no obligation to remain pregnant. The fact of the matter is that it is her body and she owns it. He doesn’t get control over her body just because they had originally agreed on something different.
It is absolutely understandable for him to be upset, but his say is not final because it isn’t his body.
Consent can be revoked. If she no longer consents to being pregnant, she can end the pregnancy. As to whether the boyfriend gets a “say,” well, he can and should express his wishes. They should certainly talk about it. But if they disagree, someone has to make the final call, and it’s the pregnant person who gets to do that.
