Can abortions at least be taboo? 

Why should they be? We don’t stigmatize any other surgery, why abortion?

Because then it’ll be less appealing and people will be less likely to get one. 

Except its already taboo??

The conservative and religious right has stigmatized abortion and family planning in general to such an extent that there’s shame associated with not only abortion, but any kind of sexual education whatsoever.

If it’s ALREADY taboo, and people are still seeking out abortions, what does that tell you about how the issue should be addressed?

THe atheist wants us to believe that we are nothing but animals, while not admitting that is dehumanizing and empties people of their freedom to choose how to live. The feminist wants us to believe children are not children until they are babies and/or can survive on their own, as if all human beings do not depend on community, fraternity, and one another in order to survive.

Uh…
that’s an awful simplistic way to see Atheists.  And Feminists.

Babies are children, in that born babies are children.  Something born = autonomous child.  A fetus in the womb doesn’t equate to, at least in the legal sense, a person.  Pro-choice people don’t always agree on when personhood begins, but they uniformly believe it is up to the parent to decide when and how they have children.  A decision that shouldn’t be coerced or forced either way.

There’s literally nothing in there that disavows or discredits the notion that we depend on each other to survive.  In fact, I’d wager a fair number of those who follow my blog at least are of the opinion that a more community oriented social construct would benefit us immensely.  As it would encourage the development of social programs and overall cultural priority to help those less fortunate.  That attitude doesn’t seem very prevalent in the US right now. Especially (relevant here) toward poor families.

Thats a simplistic way of seeing human life and the weighty concerns of a pregnant mother. Pro-choicers aren’t agnostically advocating the expansion of choices. They repeatedly make the defense that pregnancy is abundantly difficult and should more than likely be delayed or avoided.

Yea, more community oriented social constructions for the living. It is a perspective forever engaged with itself.

Every pro-choice activist I’ve worked with advocates for ALL choices.  This includes abortion, contraception, adoption, and birth.

I don’t think its simplistic at all, considering I’m also thinking of the lives of the parent, their partners, their children and other dependents.  When the pro-life side repeatedly seems to ignore the struggles and dangers associated with pregnancy, then the opposite side will repeatedly highlight those gaps. Its not always a deadly situation, but it also isn’t always a cakewalk lined with daisies.

Pregnancy can be immensely difficult: physically, psychologically, emotionally, and economically.

If a parent feels they aren’t up to the task for any of those reasons, they should be able to make that choice freely and access the care they need.  They have made those decisions for a long time, and it will only hurt parents and families to try to govern when and how they can access abortion services.

Being pro choice means I support all reproductive choices, including abstinence, birth control, pregnancy, birth, adoption, and abortion.

I will support you in any choice you would make for yourself.

What's wrong with radfems? as far as I have seen- radfems think bdsm and porn are sexist and undermine the movement, which is completely understandable....

If it’s consensual then no. BDSM and all that isn’t only practiced as the women being the Sub’s anyways, some guys are Sub’s. I’m a feminist, I believe in pro-choice, and i love BDSM with a passion. Porn maybe, yeah, but I personally don’t like to comment on the porn industry, so i’ll stay out of that.

We more mean the Radfems that think men can’t be raped or abused, that men are the root of all evil, etc. -Shelly

"I’m a feminist and I love bdsm with a passion" stop.

Telling women what to do is extremely not feminist. Just throwing that out there-Layla

Also, a lot of radfems are transmisogynists. A bunch of the monosexual ones are biphopic too.

A lot of libfems are lesbophobic and encourage calling women bitches and sluts as ‘empowering’ but I don’t see you denouncing that movement. Those who blindly defend bdsm against the ‘evil kinkshamers’ lack a deeper critical thinking ability. Keep defending men who like to hurt women and their orgasms while throwing women under the bus though. A+ feminism right there

Jfc, bdsm is not a god damn STRAIGHT thing, and saying it undermines the movement is just ignorant. BDSM certainly doesn’t undermine anything about feminism, by that logic if anyone who considers their self a feminist, has sex with a male, then that undermines the movement as well. IT IS NOT BDSM if it is not consensual, because that’s the whole god damn point in it. We can’t have a stick up our ass about what people like with their partners, NOT JUST THE DOM, but the sub as well. Like you might as well just shame people for liking sex entirely, at this point. - Shelly

Read what actual feminist theorists say about bdsm rather than chanting this “consent!” Shit all the time. A bit more depth of analysis is necessary rather than the simplistic liberal one.

Please explain how someone elses sex life affects you??-layla

When violence is being sexualised it effects women. Private influences public. You need to get over this liberal fascination with “all my choices are feminist and above criticism” and evaluate how choices made by generally privileged women effects others.

thank god someone started calling the pro choice blogs out. “even though the porn industry is like, ridiculously sexist, racist, and is basically the
number one thing that is fueling rape culture…i’d just like to stay out of it and not comment on it. but i’m a feminist.” okay lmfao

Looks like They don’t even know what determinisms and culture are. And yet they cry just because others know there is context. So childish and ignorant. As expected from apolitical libfems.

That and their “we can never say ‘women’ it has to be pregnant people because someone else said so and I have no clue how to think for myself” is a little (incredibly) annoying…

This is fucking repugnant. 

  • disagreeing with you doesn’t make someone a liberal feminist.
  • Derailing the discussion away from the shitty radfems out there doesn’t negate the fucking problems they mentioned.
  • A LOT of radfem talking points, especially those in reference to BDSM, are stuck in (hetero)sexual binaries BUT WOW I GUESS I’M SOMEHOW A LIBFEM FOR COMMENTING ON THAT. 
  • highlighting the fact that trans-men and non-binary people are affected by pro-choice/anti-choice politics isn’t liberal bullshit.  It’s being considerate.
  • acknowledging you don’t have the background or knowledge to comment on a given subject doesn’t make you a bad feminist.  It makes you a self-aware and considerate blogger.

Maybe you assholes should take some fucking notes.

No, you know what’s repugnant?

Trying to remove women from the issue of male violence against women because you don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings.

Supporting simulated violence against women, slavery, humiliation, torture, rape, and intimate partner abuse because of a small minority of men get off on being feminized is not feminist (and is kind of racist tbh).

Hold on, to what exactly are you referring?  

I’m commenting explicitly on how every response here has put words in people’s mouths and dismissed every point presented.  That’s what is repugnant to me. 

I don’t see anything about “removing women from the issue of male violence” unless you view every sexual relationship, as A) heterosexual and b) inherently violent.  Acknowledging that non-woman identified people get pregnant and are hurt by existing norms isn’t avoiding “hurting someone’s feelings.” Is that really what you were insinuating?

From what I’ve read about BDSM, there’s an interesting confluence of kink and politics.  I’m interested in the deeper psychological shit of finding those taboos a turn on (I mean I think we’d agree that rape fantasies are kinda fucked up).  But the consent angle in the whole thing negates, in a way, the implied danger (and thus the turn on?) in the encounter—-whats going on there?!  But rape fantasies are not necessarily representative of BDSM.  It’s not always about sex.  Not all subs are male, or even identify as either male or female.  I’m interested in the balance of control in BDSM that, from what I’ve observed, is strictly monitored and central to those kind of relationships. 

Being open to understanding those things and not writing them off as evil out of hand is not UNFEMINIST.  From my standpoint it’s being a responsible thinker.

I think “Stop policing, start protecting” is a really valuable chant. We’ve got to ask, who is it that the police are accountable to? It seems to me very clearly that it’s not the people. The bankers haven’t been arrested. I would love to see, what is the total sum of money that every prisoner in Rikers has ever allegedly stolen as compared to the 2007 housing market crash.

My emphasis on a salient point.

I recommend reading this article.  It’s a sobering reminder of what we’re up against as activists, of how thoroughly racist and repugnant US society and institutions are, of how corrupt and fucked up the prison industrial complex is.

Millions of “good americans” understand that pregnant people have a right to end their pregnancy if they wish. 
Yup, sounds about right to me.

Good GOD, just leave us alone and let us have our own Tumblr post without you fucking people ruining it for us

Ruining it with pointing out the obvious problems with this manipulative bullshit? 
Stop posting this nonsense and then we’ll “leave you alone.”

Fuck You, we have the 1st amendment for a reason. You can’t let us have our own beliefs and sharing it with other people who have the same.
If feminist get to have their circlejerk with their stupid shit, we get to have it too.

What the fuck?  The first amendment doesn’t protect you from people responding to your shit on a public forum.  The first amendment says you can say stupid shit, but that doesn’t mean you’re absolved from the repercussions. 
That goes for virtually anyone on here, no matter their politics or perspectives.  You mad?  Then GTFO.
