this gif actually changed my life
What if your kid went to jail for trying pot, something that is very probable if your kid is black and living in a state like Texas. Does that mean they deserve to be raped? Does that mean that they should live in conditions that go against all human rights?
Most prison rapes are committed by prison staff. Even if you are heartless and do not care about the prisoners, remember that these prison staff rapists go home to their nice houses in the outside world. Remember that they are your neighbors, maybe they even have babysat your children. Remember that as long as some victims are dehumanized and ignored, many perpetrators will never be caught. And yes, these perpetrators do pose a threat to you and your family. Prison rape, rape in general, is everybody’s problem. And definitely not a fucking joke.
The idea that prisoners “deserve” to be raped is part of rape culture.
Rape is not a punishment. It can not be earned. It is a crime every single time, no matter what, no matter who the victim is.
No one deserves to be sexually assaulted in any way. NO ONE.
|Yo. I heard you like genderbent spn. Well guess what, me and my partner are starting a webseries with the whole deal, badass hunter chicks, more PoC, queer representation, feminism, etc. We need actors, writers and all that crap too, so spread the word. A kickstarter will be made soon, so we will notify you when thats up. Thanks!|
I’m interested in how you’re planning to do this — is it a new series within the Supernatural world or are you gender-bending the characters?
The giveaway so far. I went to Ulta today and found a bunch of really nice stuff on discount and on sale.
As I said last night:
What I purchased today:
A few people have contacted me wanting to help out so I’m waiting to figure out what everyone else wants to do before buying more, but if you ever want to get good-priced makeup, check the Ulta clearance bins - brand-new, brand-name, high-quality makeup for hella cheap.
I got all of that stuff plus new foundation for me and a few other minor things for myself that I’d been needing, and the total was like $17 cuz most of it was on clearance and what wasn’t on clearance was on sale.
@ that 16yo boy who thinks he has shit to say about what people with uteruses do with said organs
Even at my shittiest (I used to be a…fucking terrible person) I supported abortion. In any situation.
Can someone explain to me how consent to sex isn’t consent to pregnancy? What else do you expect from having unprotected sex? The only 2 outcomes of sex are pregnancy or failure to conceive. Nothing else.
Also, there’s a difference between being pressured into something and rape. Huge difference…
Honestly, with all the cases of rape and people victim blaming because its not always going to be a clear case of rape, how is there going to be screening? A person says they are raped, but there is no physical proof then they should go through with the pregnancy and give birth. We should just victimize them again, which is basically what this would do.
Consent to sex is not consent to pregnancy because:
1) People do take precautions(birth control). To assume someone got pregnant because they were being unsafe is to denounce all those accidental pregnancies. Even if they didn’t use protection, they should still have a choice on what they decide to do. Its not up to you to decide what a pregnant person decides to do with their pregnancy.
2) Sex isn’t for procreation only, which is why the argument comes into play. Not everyone decides to have sex just to have children. Sex is stress reliving, intimate, and a pleasurable experience (if consensual).
You hear all this about “woe is the woman” because she has to carry the baby. What about the father? What if he wants the baby? Does he not get a say? I sure as hell have never heard anyone ask the dad if he want it. Biologically it’s 50% his.
And rarely have I heard of a case in which, legally the victim was blamed in a rape case. RARELY. Sure maybe people on the street say it, fuck them. What matters is legally. The rapist 99% is found guilty and thrown in jail.
And I am quite aware of sex being a pleasurable thing. But, as we learn in Highschool, and middle school, what is the only fool proof way to not get pregnant? Say it with me class! “The only fool proof way to prevent pregnancy is to stay sexually abstinent.” I’m sure you are quite aware of this. You don’t need a 16 year old explaining this to you. No matter what precautions you take, there is ALWAYS a risk of pregnancy if you have sex even once.
I can only assume you’re a troll due to how stereotypical you are, but let’s assume you’re totally naive instead.
The mother, not the father, has to go through hours of pain, before which there’s nine months of sickness, more pain, and medical problems (including but not limited to anemia, depression, diabetes, high blood pressure, and preeclampsia). Until the father’s life is literally put in danger, it’s the mother’s choice, not his.
The rapist is actually found guilt three percent of the time. Not 99%. 3%. Total.
And you know what? I don’t need a sixteen year old boy telling me when to have sex or not. If my birth control (which is 99% effective, since I use it correctly) and condom usage (98%, since I use them correctly and every time I have sex) both fail me, why should I subject myself to at least nine months if not longer of health problems just because somebody else donated their baby batter?
I had a conversation with my husband when we first got together that went something like this:
"Honey, if I get pregnant I am warning you right now, there will be an abortion happening and you will have absolutely no say in it. I never want kids, and I especially never want to suffer through a pregnancy."
His response was a very mature, “Hey, I’m not the one that has to carry it around for nine months and put my life at risk. Your call, babe.”
At least you guys agreed! I’m glad that he was complient. I’m just stating my opinion on how things should go. We are all entitled to them.
Yeahhh except that your opinion negates the legal concept of bodily autonomy. Just because you have an opinion doesn’t mean it’s valid and based on legal and scientific fact. I could have the opinion that in order to be President of the United States, one must first sacrifice a chicken to the Dark Lord Cthulu. Doesn’t mean I’d be correct.
Bodily autonomy is a thing that basically states that you can’t force anyone to do anything involving their body.
So you can’t force someone to donate blood or an organ (you can’t even force people to sign up to be organ donors because of bodily autonomy - if a corpse has the right to bodily autonomy, so does a pregnant person). You can’t force someone to undergo a medical procedure. You can’t force someone to NOT undergo a medical procedure. Basically, the concept of bodily autonomy means that your body is yours to do with as you please. This is, at current time, the law of the land, and for good reason.
So while I agree that in a perfect world, a cisman and a ciswoman who have gotten busy with the end result of pregnancy should have a conversation and each person should weigh in on the topic, ultimately, the final decision will always come down to the ciswoman and what she feels she wants to do.
Even so, this world isn’t perfect and that’s not always possible — sometimes it’s a one-night stand and she has no means of contacting the paternal parent, sometimes it was a rape, sometimes the two parties had a really terrible breakup, sometimes one party is outright abusive. Sometimes it’s not even about not wanting to be pregnant — sometimes it’s just about the physical and mental health of the person carrying the fetus. (Even if I wanted to get pregnant, I have a fairly unique set of physical issues that would, at current time, necessitate an abortion.) It will always be the ciswoman’s choice. Always.
Because bodily autonomy. She will be carrying the baby for nine months and putting her life at risk. Her body chemistry will be permanently altered. She will have a fuckton of medical procedures performed on her and may wind up having to be cut into to deliver. She will have to foot the medical bills (assuming that her and unidentified cismale above are not married). She will have to deal with the morning sickness, swollen feet, high blood pressure, back pain, and inability to sleep for four months. She may lose her job if she’s in the US, because while FMLA technically prevents employers from firing women for taking maternity leave, no one fucking enforces it. She may face ostracism from family members or friends; she may face rape from people who assume that because she’s a single pregnant woman, she’s a slut and they have the right to take from her what isn’t freely given.
All the cisman did was pump a few times and ejaculate. No effort whatsoever, and no bodily autonomy will be violated in the case of an abortion because once the sperm leaves the body it is no longer a part of your body.
She gets final say.
Everyone’s opinion is valid. That’s why it’s called opinion and not fact. Facts (or statements) can be correct and incorrect. (Incorrect not making it a fact) opinions can’t be proven right or wrong.
That in it’s own right is incorrect. My opinion — that no one has the right to force me to carry a pregnancy to term, because of bodily autonomy — is backed up by the legal system.
It is functionally correct.
Your opinion disregards the legalities behind bodily autonomy. Therefore it is functionally incorrect.
An opinion based on feelings rather than fact is not valid, especially if it disregards the law or science. I respect that you have the opinion, but honestly, it’s a bullshit opinion that doesn’t take into account the personhood of actual living, breathing people who might get pregnant and instead puts weight behind someone who doesn’t have to sacrifice their bodily autonomy in the slightest.
Which is shitty of you.
So, you know. Good luck with the validity of your opinion that invalidates the humanity of people capable of childbirth.
Chris Pratt Interrupts Interview To French Braid Intern’s Hair
SHUT THE HELL U P
this man has gone too far
Where does Marvel FIND these people?
Imagine - Chris Pratt and Jeremy Renner show up to your door the night of prom and your parents are like WHY DO YOU HAVE TWO DATES AND WHY ARE THEY SO BIG AND BEEFY AND INTIMIDATING but Chris is just like “Nah I’m hair” and Jeremy raises his hand and says “And I’m makeup”
I was thinking the same thing!
Top tip from Marvel Cosmetics: French braid + lips, brows and lashes.
I don’t drink anything carbonated, but if I see anyone tossing a can I’ll ask if I can get the points for you. What do the codes look like? (I’d hate to send a pic and not include the relevant info….)
The individual cans don’t have them, but 12-packs, multi-packs, and bottles do (the bottles have them in the cap).
The cap codes look like this:
And the multi-pack codes look like this (this is from like a 30-pack; usually on 12-packs they’re printed inside the pack):
Both of these are codes I’ve already used. XD
Thank you! If I manage to get enough to get the stuff I want I’ll continue taking the codes because you can also use their program to donate money to charities like the Red Cross which — AWESOME!
If you drink Coke and you’re not using the mycokerewards points
Feel free to snap a picture of the code and submit it to my blog so I can use it. If you want to.
I’m trying to save points to get a few things (namely the wireless headphones, but I also want the coke messenger bag and the Six Flags season pass for my oldest stepdaughter).
