It’s sad from this poster, we know exactly what happened.
this makes me so angry
Whenever I hear people defending rapists by making excuses such as 'they lead them on' or 'did you see what they were wearing' I casually interrupt them and ask if 'my six-year-old-self was asking for it by simply wearing a uniform to school?'.
IT. SHUTS. THEM. UP. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
Well done, show. Well done.
This reminds me of the subreddit the blue pill. :)
Nope nope nope NOPE
This was on a fucking dog outfit. We’re giving dogs gender roles now. The girl ones were all pink and said something about “glamour princess”. For a fucking dog.
"What do you mean, NO?"
this is precisely why i am against sex as a contract (aka the transactional model of sex). not only can you not buy a woman’s consent to sex but under this model rape is seen as “theft of goods and services” and murder of prostituted women justified as a reaction to being robbed. if a woman’s desire is valued at all then she has the absolute right to refuse an act at any time and for any reason. ironically, sociopaths tend to view relationships as transactional (i am not saying all these men are sociopaths, but they are engaging in sociopathic behaviors). these pieces of shit complain that their wives/girlfriends fake orgasms, but then expect prostituted women to fake orgasms. they complain that they are gold diggers who drain them of their money while trapping them in unhappy relationships, then go and spend money on prostituted women. women choosing their own sexual pleasure over that of a man’s is seen as selfish and bitchy, because they are supposed to “love” men with unconditional consent (read: no boundaries) and not be choosy, while men are never asked to prove that they even like women. this leads me to conclude that such men do support the transactional model of sex; all they care about is a woman’s sexual availability.
another issue is that men who are typically pro-sex industry are against organized religion, they say, because it is wrong to bribe poor people into converting. well, financial coercion for sex is the same thing, but when it comes to sex all their capacity for the “logic” they say they have goes out the window. they believe women should be sexually regulated by the government for men’s use.
Proverbs 31:25 (NLT)
She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future.
LOVE love this passage.
If you think this isn’t the damn truth you should know that a few years back, my campus newspaper ran an article that said fat women should be grateful for rape because it’s the only way they’ll ever feel worthy of a man’s attention.
I shit you not.
A few days before Christmas, the Gulers went to the obstetrician’s office for the 19-week ultrasound. They wanted to know whether to hang a pink or a blue stocking by the fireplace. But they never did find out the gender. Instead they learned that their miracle child had a brain defect so severe that the doctor described it as incompatible with life. Gasping, Sarah asked whether surgery or drugs could fix the condition, but the doctor shook his head. “If you’re looking for a baby that’s going to go to school and play soccer,” he told her, “this is not that child.” The doctor offered to do extra tests but added that the results would be the same. The baby would most likely be stillborn and if it survived birth, would suffer seizures every day of its short life. “If that were me,” Sarah thought, “I’d rather go to God.”
But she and her husband were in for another shock. When Sarah asked when the doctor could schedule an induction to abort the fetus, he shook his head. “We don’t do that here.” Instead, he gave her a list of abortion clinics and told her that she had only seven days to get an abortion. “You have to hurry because there’s a ban,” the doctor told them. “You’re already at 19 weeks. By next Friday, it will be too late.”
In the car on the way home, Sarah began calling the clinics on the list. Only two of them offered abortions up to 20 weeks of pregnancy. What followed was an odyssey of dead ends. Most clinics told her that they only offered abortions up to 16 weeks. One in Dallas referred her to a clinic in New Mexico, but that clinic couldn’t see her until January because it was closed for the holidays. Another clinic in Houston could schedule her on Dec. 26, but after a 24-hour mandatory waiting period she would be too far along to legally abort the fetus. Each receptionist gave Sarah another number to call until eventually she realized she had called some clinics twice. Sarah began to panic. She realized that if she failed to find a clinic in the next week, she would have to spend the remainder of her pregnancy waiting for the baby to die in utero.
“Texas can’t help us,” she said to her husband.
Observer: Texas’ New Abortion Law is Driving Women to Extremes
I’m sorry, but this is the sort of story that really frustrates me, because imagine just how different it would be if the child was born. Imagine a couple whose child suffered a severe brain injury, one that would eventually be fatal and caused them to suffer severe seizures in the meantime. Imagine the parents deciding “If it were me, I’d rather go to God” and start calling doctors to provide a lethal injection. Imagine them being shocked when doctors refuse to “help” them kill their disabled child. And imagine all the liberal, disability rights activists who would be horrified over what these parents were trying to do!
But the child is a fetus, so it’s a-ok, and a tragedy that they can’t get rid of it. It is not okay to kill people because they are disabled. Prenatal tests are NOT, despite what a lot of doctors like to have us believe, 100%, diagnoses are not always accurate, you cannot know anything about this child’s quality of life until they are born. It is not ok to kill someone over what you imagine their quality of life to be. It’s just not. And that’s something that I think is completely unquestioned in liberal disability rights activism, except suddenly when it’s a fetus. That shows me there are some real problems with the way we approach abortion, as liberals.
I HAVE SO MANY PROBLEMS WITH THIS ARTICLE WHICH MY FIANCE ABOVE WAS KIND ENOUGH TO BEGIN POINTING OUT ALREADY.
1. They never bothered to find out the sex of the baby. They could have looked, could have humanized that child a bit like ANY OTHER 20 week fetus, could’ve even NAMED them, but they were so quick to want to “terminate” this baby they didn’t take the time to find out his or her sex. That is really baffling to me.
2. “If you’re looking for a child who will play soccer and go to school, this is not that child.”
"OH, I’M SORRY, WE ORDERED A RED-HEADED CHILD WITH THREE ARMS AND SUPERB HARP PLAYING ABILITIES, I THINK WE SHOULD KILL THIS ONE AND TRY AGAIN!"
You don’t get to say, sorry, we wanted a different child, and take away the joy that kid or another set of parents could’ve gotten from them. If YOU are not looking for a kid with specific abilities, put them up for adoption and save their life.
3. “The doctor said he could do other tests but the results would be the same.”
UM, if he’s a doctor he should know that these tests are NOT completely accurate. He literally just discouraged them from getting a second opinion or doing an entirely different test, which could’ve shown different results, or even given them real time to think about their decision. Shame on him. He has no right to draw these incorrect conclusions or use them to sway her opinion.
4. “Schedule an induction to abort;” are they referring to partial birth abortion? I am so frustrated with the hypocrisy here - “a baby is not a baby and does not have rights until he/she is born” does not apply if you’re talking about birthing and THEN killing that baby. There’s a reason late term abortion is banned: there is a good chance the baby can feel pain at his/her age. Who feels they are barbaric enough to induce labour, help someone give birth, then proceed to murder the child that comes out because you’ve decided their life isn’t worth living? Again, SHAME.
The absolute ONLY option that should be available here is to deliver the child ALIVE, and try to keep them that way. If the mother doesn’t want him/her, that shouldn’t give anyone the right to kill them.
I really really don’t want to upset anyone with this post, but I also cannot in good conscious let stories like this go around being mislabeled as “women’s rights issues.” That baby has rights. That life has a right to exist. He/she didn’t ask to be conceived, and until one specific ultrasound was a wanted child. Giving birth does not imply parenting and it also doesn’t give you the right to murder, whether that child is disabled, abled, or freakin’ super-abled. God help us.
Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous.
I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love. ❤
I love this. The only one that upsets me is the hair one - I don’t ask unless I know or am comfortable with the person, but I love to feel any interesting hair (mohawks, buzz-cuts, dreadlocks, etc), not just black peoples. Again, that doesn’t mean I have a RIGHT to, I just think it was phrased harshly above.
Every guy should just really look at this.
The WV Free Choice Fund helps dozens of patients every year access safe, legal abortion in West Virginia. They provide funds as well as lodging to women traveling long distances. If you are in need of assistance, click the link or contact the Women’s Health Center of West Virginia.
As a West Virginian woman, I do not believe this is an organization that helps women. If you’d like to give time and money for what West Virginian women need, I encourage endorsement for a group I’ve volunteered for in the past - The Gabriel Project.
Here are a few quotations from the Gabriel Project’s website about what they do and the type of women they serve
The Gabriel Project benefits families and single mothers without adequate financial resources to meet the tangible needs of a new baby. We provide such items as safe cribs, secure car seats, diapers, formula, clothing, and hygiene products at no or low cost to the client. We also provide mothers with emotional support, answer questions about baby care, and make referrals to other social service organizations. We provide transportation if possible to medical appointments.
Unlike other women and children service organizations, we do not impose financial restrictions or eligibility criteria on our clients. We therefore frequently assist needy families who “fall through the cracks” in qualifying for other agencies’ services. We serve homeless women, families without jobs, women and children who are victims of domestic violence and countless others. Although we primarily serve mothers and mothers-to-be, we also assist fathers and grandparents caring for their child or grandchild.
We help mothers like Jessica, who escaped from an abusive relationship with her infant and toddler and only a few clothes that she could quickly gather. She timidly approached the Gabriel Project, seeking diapers for her infant. When the Gabriel Angel met with Jessica, it quickly became apparent that this family needed much more help. She and her children were sleeping on old blankets on the floor in a house with no heat. There was little food to eat. In a matter of hours, the Gabriel Angel rallied help to provide emergency items. The next day a crib and toddler bed arrived. The Gabriel Angel also helped Jessica connect with other social service agencies for additional assistance and legal support. Even though Jessica was nervous about the future, she cried tears of joy for the care and mentoring provided to her by the Gabriel Project.
