THATS RIGHT.

REBLOGGED THIS ONE BEFORE BUT I DONT EVEN FUCKING CARE 

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSS

WHAT FUCKING MOVIE OR SHOW IS THIS WHAT IS THIS WHAT THE FUCK

I went for a run with a friend of mine, and we were talking about harassment and shit, and he wondered aloud how things would/will change if and when more women were empowered to beat the shit out of those who say sexist shit to them.

Part of me doesn’t want to encourage this sort of thing cause I don’t generally encourage hurting others.  However, I do wonder how comfortable douchebags would feel about saying/doing shit like this if there was a more real threat of getting kicked in the balls.

black guy here and i've always been attracted to black girls the most but seems like they've never really liked me. i've talked to girls of other races before and i've never had any problems. most black girls i've encountered have always been quick to say either i was gay or weird. i mean i am somewhat into fashion and i do take pride in the way i dress and all. i've never really been an athlete like talk about and i'm not like over 6ft & bulked up. what's up with that?

I almost want to say this is based on individual preference but it also comes down to stereotypical prejudices we have within our community about what a black person should be. Like the whole “acting white” bs. 

It’s all ignorance and immaturity

Not just a stereotypical notion of what a black person shoud be, but what a black man should be. Is it inappropriate to call that “sexism”?

But if women are a major socializing force on males and other females, and socialize in such a way that perpetuates the status quo we’d call “patriarchal” and/or harmful to men, then why NOT call it “sexism against men”?

Or at least tastes informed by sexism?

Just posing a question.

Huh.

Followers, what do you think?

What would have once sounded like a “far-fetched feminist fantasy” – women forming the majority of a parliament – is a reality in Rwanda.
In fact, women are making gains throughout Africa, but these achievements have been met with a loud silence from the western feminist movement. 
African women are blazing a feminist trail - why don’t we hear their voices? (The Guardian)

Sweetie. Science says that when a woman gets an abortion the FETUS is not developed enough to feel anything or have any coherent thoughts of any kind. So no, abortions are not killing a person. Abortions kill a cell mass that has gone through development to be called a human being. Science.

Well if I’m your sweetie then you’re my babe.  So babe, science says that life has begun after conception.  Zygote/embryo/fetus/infant/toddler/child/adolcent/adult/elder—-all different stages of growth and development of the human person. 

For example an elder is at one stage of growth and development

while an adolescent/young adult is at another

Just like a teenager is at a different stage of growth and development compared to an elder, a fetus is at a different stage than an infant.

One’s stage of growth and development does not depart you from your humanity, at all stages you are human.  In fact growth and development is a requirement to be considered life in the first place.  

Secondly, one’s capacity to feel pain and their mental acuity does not determine their rights as an individual or their personhood.  Born humans who suffer from a disease that takes away their capacity to experience pain are still human persons.  The mentally disabled who could indeed lack coherent thoughts are still human persons.  Functionalism does not determine humanity.  In reality, to suggest that a human’s personhood is contingent on their ability to exercise different functions is incredibly ableist of you.

Oh and babe, I’d love to talk to you about any questions you may have

Much love,

Lily

I also want to note that children do, in fact, show brain activity after 8 weeks in the womb.

  • Hellegers A. Fetal development. In: Beauchamp T, Walters L, eds. contemporary issues in bioethics. California. Dickenson Publishing, 1978: 194-199. 
  • Bergstrom R M. Development of EEG and unit electrical activity of the brain during ontogeny”. In: Jilek L J, Stanislav T, eds. Ontogenesis of the brain. Czechoslovakia: University of Karlova Press, 1968: 61-71. 
  • Ellingson R J, Guenter H R. Ontogenesis of the Electroencephalogram. In: Himwick W A, ed. Developmental neurology. Springfield, I1: C C Thomas Books, 1970: 441-474.

There is no steady brain activity until 24 weeks.
While there is activity before that, the pain receptors and the parts of the brain that process pain are not connected. So while some nerves may register pain, it is not processed, and therefore, not felt.

Stop lying to people.

So hang on. Your biased website ought to be trusted over the unbiased science listed above?

That website directly links to scientific journals you cumquat

Did you read any of the information listed above? Ten times more reliable than any Pro Abortion website you provide

Salon is not a pro choice website and the article links to medical journals. Your sources, on the other hand, are from the 1960s and 70s.

A.k.a. WAYYYY out of date

Okay so let’s get beyond the physical argument for a sec. Let’s just say unborn people don’t have full brain functionality like you said. Read above “Functionalism does not determine humanity. In reality, to suggest that a human’s personhood is contingent on their ability to exercise different functions is incredibly ableist of you.”
You’re saying it’s okay to violate someone’s human rights because they aren’t as able as you. And you also support Wendy Davis making fun of Greg Abbott for being in a wheel chair. I’m sorry to break it to you, but you’re the worst kind of ableist.

The fact that they don’t feel pain isn’t what makes abortion ok.
It would be ok even if they could feel pain, I’m just sick of you lying to people and using shit sources.

And again. No where in her ad does she make fun of disabled people. She criticizes Abbott for denying them the same services he is requesting for himself.
That’s not ableist.

You’re saying abortion is okay, even if a fetus can feel when s/he is being torn to bits. You’re sick in the head.

In cases where the fetus is able to feel pain (rare late term abortions) they inject the fetus and stop it’s heart before removal.

Stop. Lying. To. Women.

theworld-onherhips it’s kind of pathetic to watch you maneuver away from your bullshit argument and try to discredit thephotogfeminist

1) Your sources are outdated,

2) she’s not being ableist, and nor is Wendy Davis through that ad,

3) She’s not sick in the head for advocating for women to have the right to make decisions about their bodies and families without presumptuous jackasses like yourself intervening. 

Get your head out of your asshole and move on. You’ve effectively lost this argument.
