Fetuses are children

It’s a fetus until birth.  At birth, it becomes sentient.
Children are sentient, conscious, subjective and bodily autonomous people.  Fetuses are not.
We need to worry about the born children who are suffering now, rather than worrying about fetuses that don’t have the capacity to suffer. 

Fetuses suffer just as much as people after birth do when you kill them, they feel pain, they know what’s happening

That’s absolute hogwash fed to you by pro-life liars and biased doctors who “fudged” numbers, and that’s giving them credit.
Fetuses don’t feel pain until the third trimester, if that. It’s highly likely they can’t feel pain because they are a) unconscious (yes, hey become conscious at birth) and b) the uterus probably keeps them anesthetized until birth.  
Most abortions happen in the first trimester.  
Have some UNBIASED information!

TL;DR You’re misinformed and wrong.

THANK YOU.
Fetuses are NOT children. Unfollow if you think they are. Seriously.

Yes, poor little old you. There we were, discussing rape, violence against women, systemic oppression and other manifestations of sexism, and you had to jump in to remind us that “not all men” do these things. Why don’t you really say what you want to say? “I HAVE NEVER RAPED/HIT/ASSAULTED A WOMAN!” Right? Isn’t this what you really want to say? Yes, make a discussion that is about the plight of MILLIONS of women about poor little old you. I mean, millions of women are being assaulted and oppressed, but you’ve never done it, so why are we making you uncomfortable with these discussions?

she was special and unique because unlike other girls she read a book and drank a tea and didnt talk about a clothes

young adult authors everywhere 

 

#she was also hetero and she liked to look at the stars at night

#And she was an old soul who raised herself, also her eyes were deep pools

#And she didn’t wear makeup but it was okay because she had flawless skin anyway

Still Not a Joke — Good Awareness Campaign From Just Detention International

What if your kid went to jail for trying pot, something that is very probable if your kid is black and living in a state like Texas. Does that mean they deserve to be raped? Does that mean that they should live in conditions that go against all human rights?

Most prison rapes are committed by prison staff. Even if you are heartless and do not care about the prisoners, remember that these prison staff rapists go home to their nice houses in the outside world. Remember that they are your neighbors, maybe they even have babysat your children. Remember that as long as some victims are dehumanized and ignored, many perpetrators will never be caught. And yes, these perpetrators do pose a threat to you and your family. Prison rape, rape in generalis everybody’s problem. And definitely not a fucking joke. 

The idea that prisoners “deserve” to be raped is part of rape culture.
Rape is not a punishment. It can not be earned. It is a crime every single time, no matter what, no matter who the victim is.

No one deserves to be sexually assaulted in any way. NO ONE.

In order to become the supreme adult, you must perform the seven wonders:

  • Public speaking
  • Not being afraid of teenagers
  • Calling the doctor yourself
  • Taxes
  • Arguing without crying
  • Having a normal sleep pattern
  • Having an answer to the question ‘what do you want to do with your life?’

Yeah, the arguing without crying thing….still working on that :P

i think we all know this one person…

Yes. We probably do all know “that one person.”

More likely than not, “that one person” often times adds to our insecurities.

But “that one person” might also view themselves just as they claim. “That one person” might have a serious eating disorder. They might absolutely fucking hate their body.

Their view on their own appearance does not necessarily apply to you. Eating disorders are mental. They apply to oneself. Someone could be as thin as can be and have an overweight friend who they accept without a second thought. They just view THEIR OWN bodies as inadequate.

There is also a chance that “that one person” has an eating disorder and/or body dysmorphic disorder.

coming out to your parents

If you try for one second to tell me the X-Men isn’t an allegory for the gay rights movement, I will smack you. They weren’t even remotely subtle about this.

The mutants have always been an allegory for anyone that didn’t fit in to society. The folks who drew the comics made a point of that early on.

It’s not just the gay rights movement, its not just kids trying to “come out” to their parents.  Its people being mistreated by the government, put away, forced to pretend to be “normal”, systematically oppressed, even killed for who they are because the powers that be cant control it.  It’s an allegory for blacks, gays, the disabled (mentally and physically), women, and anyone really who isnt a white man at the top of the food chain.

It is about the many faces of oppression and the destruction that follows.
