“When husbands and wives do not own each other as property, but are bound together only by affection, marriage will be a life long friendship and not a heavy yoke, from which both may sometimes long for deliverance. The freer the relations are between human beings, the happier…”—
Elizabeth Cady Stanton, ”Home Life,” 1875 (via sozzney)
Hahahahaha, I just coughed all over my Nuva Ring. Hahahahahahaha.
I was about to put it in, so it was in my hand, and then I had the sudden urge to cough, and without thinking I coughed all over it. I’ve decided it’s an extra preventative measure. Now the sperm will all have colds!
Sometimes I see a text post with a punchline and a buttload of notes, and the reblog-dialogue-stuff makes it look like Person X is the OP. But you look at the source and someone else is actually responsible for the content. So you put two and two together and realize that Person X deleted the OP from the text box to make all subsequent reblogs look like Person X is the source. I see this stuff and I want to reach through the screen and find you, Person X, and rip out your trachea with my bare hands because you are shameless whore.
Sometimes when I reblog things it just doesn’t show up. For example, I reblogged this from kaleyoutloud. idk how to fix it. D;
Pastor Mike compares atheists to “convicted sex offenders , ex-convicts , terrorist cells , hate groups like the KKK , skinheads , radical Islamists , etc..” He claims that the purpose of this organization/website called, “The Christian National Registry of Atheists” is to inform the public of known atheists so that they can be proselytize to and their businesses can be boycotted.
I never want to hear about your periods. Ever. I don’t care if it’s sexist. Do I tell you about my shit? There is a difference between feminism and just being ill-mannered and crass.
1) The whole idea of manners reeks to me of social class, which is one reason why I refuse to be well-mannered.
2) The reason people think periods are gross is very sexist. Instead of a normal physiological process, it’s seen as disgusting and unspeakable. This reads to me a bit like the issues surrounding body hair on women: society tells us that women’s bodies exist to be seen, to be gazed at, but not to truly function. I like talking about my period because it challenges this idea we have of women’s bodies as things which are dainty, and polite, and unobtrusive. My body, in actuality, is a flesh and blood thing with flesh and blood processes.
3) Tell me about your shit if you feel like it.
[tw period]I’m on my period. I just changed my tampon and it was really bloody. Like, I mean blood dripping from it when I pulled it out of my cunt. It’s completely normal to have this as a bodily function and when people were grossed out I’m just like:
SMILE! YR MA HAD HER PERIOD WHICH MEANT SHE GAVE YOU LIFE.
OH MY GOD, THIS.
One day, I had bought a box of the U by Kotex tampons which are just really pretty, whatever. Anyway, when I got home, I was like, “MOM, LOOK AT MY BEAUTIFUL TAMPONS!” and we were talking about how awesome they were and my dad was like, “That is disgusting. I’m trying to watch the race.” I wanted to punch him in the mouth, but he knows I think he’s sub-human, so I just left. whatever, he’s gross.
I understand that you can take all the preventative steps you want in order to avoid pregnancy, however in the end you still put yourself in a position where it is possible. No matter how slim the odds may be and regardless of the preventative steps you take you can never fully reduce the odds of pregnancy to zero; you will always be putting yourself at risk.
so if the possibility, no matter how slim becomes the reality, based off of your own choice of lifestyle you yourself should burden the consequences of those actions without terminating the life of your unborn child.
Just because you think giving birth is the only way to ‘take responsibility’ for being so bold as to have sex and not want a child, it’s not. It’s a personal choice, however they choose to take responsibility, be it abortion or giving birth or whatever, it is taking responsibility.
And #don’t kill babies, this isn’t about babies, because babies aren’t aborted. No one is advocating killing babies. You should learn more about this issue and see how you feel then.
I rage so hard every time I read some bullshit like this. Pregnancy is not punishment for having sex. Sometimes, sex between heterosexual couples result in pregnancy. My boyfriend and I, despite the fact that we use birth control and condoms every single time we have sex, could create a fetus. That doesn’t mean the fetus is punishment for having sex. It’s just a natural reaction between sperm and egg. I am 21 years old. I can legally do anything but rent a car. Does that mean that I am mature enough to have a child? Does it mean that my boyfriend and I are financially stable enough to provide for a child? I don’t work, because I’m in school, and he makes approximately $150 a week. That barely buys food and gas for us to get to work/class. There simply isn’t room for a child in this equation. We can scrape up $500 for an abortion, if we need to. We can’t scrape up money every single day for 18+ years to provide for an extra person.
It’s making the rounds on Tumblr today, and I just watched the video on Jezebel. Take a few minutes. Go read the synopsis and watch the video. Um. It’s a pretty spectacular and monumentally disturbing video of some dude at Asssscat 3000 show at the Del Close Marathon standing up in the audience, and speaking loudly and proudly into a mic, offering a personal story in hopes that the comedians on stage could incorporate it into an improv. And basically, his story is how he rapes a girl. Make no mistake; you listen to his story, all the way through, and the only conclusion you will reach is
(A. He actually raped someone and thought it was funny
(B. He is lying, but thinks telling a roomful of strangers a story about raping someone is funny.
I don’t know, I really don’t. But I don’t think I care. This is a post by Halie Kiefer, a comedian who was in the audience…. she really had some good thoughts on the situation, and I think this sort of summed it up:
However, the most horrifying part of the incident, to me, was that it was a joke to the monologist. This wasn’t a story being told telling off–the-cuff: his friends pointed him out as having a superior story, certain details had clearly been finessed, and at one chilling point, the storyteller added, “This is how I tell this part to my friends.” Of course, there was also the coup de grace, when the monologist acted out how he successfully implemented “the fishhook” on the woman in the story, jabbing his fingers into a phantom vagina and turning to the audience with a look on his face that suggested we should have been applauding him. It was clear that he had told his joke before and found particular delight in it. This was clearly a beloved bit about he valiantly struggled to overcome a woman’s desire not to have sex with him, and succeeded. L.O.L.
excuse me while I vomit all over the place
I am glad that the people at the party called him a rapist to his face aftwerwards
No words for how horrified i am by this.
This is amazingly infuriating. It is incredible how fucking mad I am. Fuck this guy. Goddamn it.
So, last night, Corey and I went to Pilot to get sodas. As we were leaving, this really old guy (at least 75) pulls up next to us and asks for directions to Barbourville. From where we were, it was literally a straight line - you go through Pineville, then you’re in Barbourville. We explained this 10+ times and he just was not getting it. He kept asking for us to go to Barbourville so he could follow us. Eventually he was like, “I don’t know what I’m going to do. I don’t have anywhere to sleep,” and I felt bad for him, so we decided to do it. When we leave Pilot, Old Guy doesn’t turn on his headlights for at least five minutes. When he finally does, he gets so close to our bumper and we really thought he was going to rear-end us. He’s also swerving all over the road. He didn’t seem to be intoxicated at all, when we spoke to him, so I think he’s just old and can’t see. ANYWAY, we get almost to Bell High and there is a turn off on the right with a turning lane. Old dude gets in the turning lane. When he sees that we haven’t done the same, he tries to come back over… and nearly hits a fucking cop. The cop blue lights him and Old Dude does not pull over for at least a mile. He just keeps flashing his headlights at us. Eventually he does stop for the cop, but he doesn’t pull onto the shoulder. He just parks in the middle of the lane.
When we turned around to go back to Middlesboro, Old Dude was standing outside his truck talking to the cop. There is absolutely no way this police officer was going to let this guy drive anywhere, so we just went back home. I’ve checked the detention center website and he isn’t on there, so I’m thinking they took him to the hospital.
It was just… ridiculous. I’m glad he got pulled over, because I have no doubt in my mind that he would have wrecked before we got to Barbourville. I still feel bad for the guy. I just hope he got some help.
On a lighter note, there is someone in the Bell County Detention Center right now named Don Johnson. I lol’d.
How can you, Mr. Evans, the director of all the Planned Parenthood’s sit there and say that abortion is least of the services you provide?
It sounds morbid, but every time one of those Dr.’s who perform abortions kills a baby, there should be an infant screaming the background. Maybe that would jolt their conscience.
Oh no, providing a much needed medical service at an affordable price. Abortions are 3% of the services they provide, this breaks it down further for you:
Abortion doesn’t kill babies, in most cases it kills a very undeveloped, unfeeling, unthinking fetus that cannot scream or feel pain. So why should they hear an infant screaming? When that has nothing at all to do with an abortion procedure?
Other than maybe that a lot of people who have abortions get them to make sure they are able to provide for the children they already have, and that some people who get abortions want children it’s just not the right time in their life. This is a video that goes a little further into who gets abortions.
Those doctors risk life and limb to help those in need. They stand against ridiculous protesters who refuse to open their minds or hearts.
That makes me sick. Screaming murderer at someone who has just made such a difficult decision, throwing eggs at someones car, hateful signs and ignorance pretending they give a single shit about the people who are going into the clinic. Setting up fake propaganda ‘clinics’ next door, leading people into them and telling them lies to talk them out of something they already decided on.
Not to mention the 1.4% who are having to abort late-term are generally wanted pregnancies with extreme complications. Anti-choicers want to scream that doctors who provide abortion are murderers, but they don’t see a problem with murdering those doctors. ugh, whatever, I hate everything.
“Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear.”—Thomas Jefferson (via lasers8oclock)
“There is nothing unusual about Governor Rick Perry. Uneducated fools can be found in every country and every period of history, and they are not unknown in high office. What is unusual about today’s Republican party (I disavow the ridiculous ‘GOP’ nickname, because the party of Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt has lately forfeited all claim to be considered ‘grand’) is this: In any other party and in any other country, an individual may occasionally rise to the top in spite of being an uneducated ignoramus. In today’s Republican Party ‘in spite of’ is not the phrase we need. Ignorance and lack of education are positive qualifications, bordering on obligatory. Intellect, knowledge and linguistic mastery are mistrusted by Republican voters, who, when choosing a president, would apparently prefer someone like themselves over someone actually qualified for the job.”—Richard Dawkins (Attention Governor Perry: Evolution is a fact)
Five lesbians who say they were attacked because of their sexual orientation are angry with the D.C. police officers who responded for releasing the attackers and not taking a report.
Early Saturday morning, the women were walking in the 3100 block of 14th Street NW when two men confronted them. First, the men flirted, but after one of the women rebuffed their advances by saying she was with her girlfriend, the men began hurling obscenities at them, the women said.
It allegedly escalated to a physical confrontation when one of the women was punched in the face. When other women in the group went to her aid, more punches allegedly were thrown by both men.
“A very violent attack, leaving bruises on their faces and black eyes,” said A.J. Singletary, of Gays and Lesbians Opposing Violence.
A bystander called police, but what happened when officers arrived was not what any of the victims expected. Police released the men.
“The police response kind of brushed off the attack,” Singletary said. “They said the women were hysterical, which is understandable. I mean, if you’re attacked, especially in that violent of a fashion, the expectation is that you’d be very upset about that, so the fact that the police said they were hysterical and even threatened to arrest the women themselves because they were so hysterical is absolutely unacceptable.”
The department’s gay and lesbian liaison took reports later, and Chief Cathy Lanier has spoken to the victims.
“The great response after the fact doesn’t make up for the poor response in the beginning,” Lanier said. “For four or five officers to be aware of a crime and not take police action, that’s a very serious allegation.”
An internal investigation of the officer’s actions is under way, Lanier said, and police have good leads in the alleged hate crime itself.
This incident follows two recent crimes against transgender women – one in which the victim was killed and another in which she was shot at. Police don’t believe the incidents are related.
“And yet in modern American culture, sex is practically the only sin there is. When’s the last time a Christian kid got thrown out of the house because they coveted others’ possessions or they made fun of a homeless person? When’s the last time a Christian lawmaker made hyperbolic, slightly-unhinged-sounding promises to a church group to fight the sin of avarice? When’s the last time churches protested a movie because it depicted violence?”—The Pervocracy: When did “sin” become synonymous with sex? (via sexisnottheenemy)
the Passion of the Christ is one of the most violent films I’ve seen. Huh.
"Wonder what would happen if we treated our BIBLE like we treat our CELL PHONE? We CARRY it every where we go. We flipped through it throughout the day We went home to get it if we FORGOT it We RECEIVED messages from the text. We COULDN'T live WITHOUT it We GAVE it to KIDS as gifts. We used it in case of emergency One more thing it would NEVER be disconnected JESUS has already paid the bill Pass this on cause its true!!!"
I think spaghetti is really good and also a lot of other food and I like Severus Snape a lot. I wish Snape's hair were made of spaghetti so I could make love to him and eat his spaghetti hair at the same time.
