When anti-choicers believe consent to sex is consent to pregnancy…
Last time I checked no one has the ability to define anyone else’s consent but the person giving or revoking consent…
Margaret Higgins Sanger, an American birth control activist, sex educator, and nurse. Sanger coined the term birth control, opened the first birth control clinic in the United States, and established Planned Parenthood. (via anchors-aweighlove)
I can play, too. Everyone here knows Abraham Lincoln right? He’s the guy that freed the slaves! He did good things, right? He’s a good guy, right?
“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.”
Surprise, surprise, there’s racist roots in a lot of shit because THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WAS FOUNDED ON FUCKING RACISM.
Woman: Can I have birth control?
Woman: I got pregnant because I didn’t have birth control and I don’t want the fetus. Can I have an abortion?
Woman: I gave birth to my child but since I wasn’t expecting it, I can’t afford daycare. Can I have help paying for it?
Stop degrading the act of sex by calling it ‘opening your legs.’
I’m so sick of women being degraded all the time. Because women just, you know, lay back and ‘spread their legs’ and let men do whatever they want. They don’t take any active role in the actual sex act or enjoy it. They are just objects that lay there with their legs open. Then they are stupid because through poor judgement or mishap, they became pregnant. The man is never blamed or shamed or degraded for having sex. There are no phrases used to degrade the act of a man participating in a sexual act, at least not a heterosexual one.
I swear if I could punch people in the face for saying ‘they shouldn’t have spread their legs’ I would. I don’t even care if they are someone in my family or my friends. That is how fucking pissed I get when people say hateful shit like that about women.
No issue is black and white. Women have abortions for many reasons. Shit happens. The fetus ends up being deformed and would not live; the woman just ended a previously stable relationship; the woman or couple has children already and cannot afford any more at the moment; The couple may have used birth control but it failed; the woman just found out she has a serious illness and will not be able to carry a pregnancy to term; the woman was raped, etc.
So fuck you and your hatred of women. Negativity about sex is disgusting and harmful. flowersarebetterthanbullets on This Post (I made this a quote, because the original picture with text was visually offensive. These pro-life people need to take a graphic design class.)
