I know I have a few people that follow me because of my political discussions, but you should know I also blog and reblog things for fun. I'm into fandom; it's part of my life. Don't be surprised if you see stuff about Disney, or kittens, or even my own artwork. Sometimes, I need to not be so serious.

Okay, I fixed it for reals this time.

Good job making light of someone’s actual experience for absolutely no reason.

For all of you going up my butt about calling a pregnancy a “consequence”

prolifeproblems:

Consequence:  That which follows as a result.

And I actually went and found my actual printed dictionary for that one.  And I looked it up.  Do you guys have any idea how long it even took me to figure out how to spell “Consequence” let alone find it?  Mostly because dictionaries have been the bane of my existence on account of my Dyslexia.

But there, that’s from the New Expanded Webster’s Dictionary, something I never want to touch again.  I would have used Dictionary.com, but the same people who are up my butt for calling pregnancy a consequence are in my other orifices for using Dictionary.com.

So yes, pregnancy is a consequence of sex.  Does being a consequence make it inherently bad? No.

Wearing pants is a consequence of putting pants on.  Is wearing pants bad? No(t necessarity).

Love,

PLP

Stop using dictionaries as a source. If you did it for a paper you’d be marked off for it.

"Consequence" has a connotation of punishment. It is suggestive of the aftermath of doing something that is questionable or wrong.

The lost art of common sense. <3

Citizen: I believe abortion is murder.
Government: But you’re not the one murdering.
Citizen: Birth control is against my religion.
Government: Have fun paying for others to use it.
Citizen:  I want my kids to learn Creationism, not evolution.
Government:  Well either have them learn something you don’t want them to or have fun paying over $12,000 a year to have them go to a private school and then pay taxes to the public school anyways even though you’ll never use the system.

Citizen: I believe abortion is murder.
Government: You can believe what you want, but you clearly don’t know the definition of murder.
Citizen: Birth control is against my religion.
Government: So don’t use it.
Citizen: But my insurance company provides it, and I pay a premium.
Government: And people pay a premium that provides services for you that they don’t believe in using. Why are you special?
Citizen: I want my kids to learn Creationism, not evolution.
Government: Evolution is science, and it is part of a science curriculum, which is a required part of public education. Creationism is neither of these things. If you want your child to learn Creationism, take them to church, or if you really believe the introduction of conflicting information is just too much parenting for you to handle, send them to private school or homeschool them.
Citizen: Why should I have to pay taxes for public school if I don’t use it?
Government: Everyone pays taxes on things they don’t like. You do not get special consideration. That’s part of being in a society.

A friend and I outside of a Planned Parenthood.  The one we went to didn’t preform actual abortions, but gave referrals for them.  We prayed, held up signs, and then went to Chick-Fil-A and got our picture taken with their cow mascot.  It was a very sad but enlightening day.  I blurred out her face because I didn’t want to post her picture without permission.

It&#8217;s a great day for condescending to people with bigger problems than I have! :D

Pro Life Problems: "back alley abortions" →

prolifeproblems:

Often portrayed with rusty coat hangers and knitting needles, the idea of back alley abortions is a frightening one.
I’ve covered this topic before in my blog, but feel it needs to be covered again. I’m typing this on my shoddy phone and can’t link sources, so if you want them, feel free to go…

You are representing illegal abortions from a classist view.

It was not the same for people who can’t pay doctors. The decision to legalize abortion wasn’t just to save women, specifically, it was to save POOR women, because a pregnant person of means could pay for an abortion and the doctor can write it off as something else to avoid litigation. This was how it was done back then, and that’s how it would be if abortion were banned today.

People who can’t afford to take that option would have to resort to other measures.

Even so, if you are so convinced that because of advances we see today, it wouldn’t be so bad or dangerous to have an illegal abortion, WHY MAKE IT ILLEGAL AT ALL? Why do anything that would increase the chances of a person attempting to perform an abortion on themselves?

So that you can feel moral because it’s down in the law books that you’re “right”?

Unless it’s your uterus you can mind your own business.
