this is actually disgusting.
Saw “THIS”?! They immediately dehumanized this woman and then further dehumanized her by stating they would rape her. Every one of these males. Rape was the first thing that came to mind. This is beyond disgusting.
Go on. Tell me rape culture isn’t real. Tell me how “Everyone knows rape is wrong.”
Never drop a book in the bath again! An 8 year old’s invention.
that eight year old is the chosen one
are we gonna ignore the fact that the book is completely soaked in water
it’s not soaked, it’s damaged from all the past times she dropped it… That led to her amazing invention.
This is the greatest thing I have ever seen. People do not understand that mental illnesses, such as depression, are actual chemical imbalances in your body. They are not brought on by choice. My dad was diagnosed with depression. He was so ashamed of it that he hid it from me and my brothers. A month later, he killed himself. The stigma that comes with mental illness made my Dad embarrassed to talk to his own kids about this problem because he felt like less of a man.
Erase the stigma. The more we talk about mental illness, the less likely it will end in suicide.
I can’t even express how much i love this, and I wish everyone at my school could see this. because I am so tired of being judged for something i can’t control.
mental illnesses are way too stigmatized in today’s society
It’s not your body anymore, when there is a baby present. Carry that child to term responsibly, or you’re a murderer.
No, I’m sorry, but that’s idiotic. It’s my body no matter what. If I wanted to get an abortion i’d get a fucking abortion regardless if that made me a murderer in someone who doesn’t have to actually carry a baby’s eyes. Birth control being more widely available is a serious issue. You’re stupid if you think every situation that leads to abortion makes someone a murderer. 11 year old gets raped by her cousin “No girl, you carry that child, you squeeze that out of your currently underdeveloped vagina. It’s the right thing to do. You’re a murderer if you don’t. Who cares that it’ll emotionally scar you for life and you’ll forever be reminded of it every time you look at your child or cousin. It’s the humane thing to do. If you were older you’d understand.” Shit, the same thing happened to a nine year old “Who the fuck cares if you’re only a baby yourself, you’re totally going to go through with this, I don’t care if it’ll nearly kill you or damage your insides. Raise that baby like a good non-murderer.”
Then we go overseas where it’s all “You’re pregnant out of wedlock, let’s stone you to death instead of giving you and others like you birth control or the option to abort. I’m sorry that we live in such a fucked up society that if I force myself on you and get pregnant you’re still the one who is shamed. Wait no I’m not, suck it up and deal with it”, “You’ve been told your baby is dying in the womb, no abortion for you girl, you have to keep it and die of blood poisoning. Too bad we could have avoided it if we were more understanding of a woman and her body”.
Open your eyes for God’s sake. You can’t even get pregnant, you’re a man and I get that you have a right to your unborn child and the potential for mental trauma. But you personally are not at risk of dying from pregnancy complications. You personally are not at risk of being shunned by your community and killed for carrying someone elses child. You personally are not having to carry the mental and physical scars of going through an unwanted pregnancy with your potential rapists child. You personally are not at risk of being considered used, dirty and unwanted because of something you could have avoided if proper health care was available to you. You aren’t personally responsible for raising a child (or person with mental capacity of a child) who also has a child because “Abortion is murder in all circumstances”.
It’s not your body either, and until you have to deal with everything above then you cannot tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body.
My roommate, laying it the fuck down.
Thank you for putting this into words that many of us cannot find. And to the man at the beginning…come back when you grow breasts and a vagina and can rightfully make a statement that bold on a topic you will never be able physically endure.
this is what heterophobia would look like if it was real.

this is beautiful
I have a lot of deep and personal feelings about this. It is going to take me a minute, the wind has been knocked form me.
So after waking up 5 minuets before I needed to leave for class this morning, running out to find I can’t drive my jeep because the door panels are gone… After deciding not to go to my Sociology class I decide to stay here and prepare for the math quiz i know i am going to fail. So as I am sitting here I get a call from my Mother..she is letting me know that she is almost in town.. Wat. She is almost here„, and did I mention It’s my b-day… I get excited but confused then she tells me my aunt is in the hospital…pneumonia and Heart Failure. Everything seems too calm… My mom(who’s sister is dying) was calm, almost chipper on the phone….I think maybe she was trying to be calm for me and since she was driving..but I am not so sure what will happen when she gets to the hospital…I just hope Today turns around… There is my 3rd bad thing. Everything comes in threes, you know. Good things. I got my Car, I got Promoted at work, and then I found my very expensive glasses that have been missing for 2 months…Bad. I Fucked up when trying to clean the film developer at work, I slept in till 5 minuets before i needed to be at work yesterday and now this. Now that this is all out of the way I can turn it all around and be on a good, normal track again.
