Alive, Bodies , and Facebook: IS IT REALLY JuST YOUR BODY? Facebook.com/OnlineForLife truckyousasha: thekaraokeninja: fandomsandfeminism: generalmaluga: albinwonderland: fandomsandfeminism: betterthanabortion: “My body, my choice” only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake. Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to. See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.  Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.  To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died.  You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.  reblogging for commentary  But, assuming the mother wasn’t raped, the choice to HAVE a baby and risk sacrificing their “bodily autonomy” is a choice that the mother made. YOu don’t have to have sex with someone. Cases of rape aside, it isn’t ethical to say abortion is justified. The unborn baby has rights, too.  First point: Bodily autonomy can be preserved, even if another life is dependent on it. See again the example about the blood donation.  And here’s another point: When you say that “rape is the exception” you betray something FUNDAMENTALLY BROKEN about your own argument. Because a fetus produced from sexual assault is biologically NO DIFFERENT than a fetus produced from consensual sex. No difference at all. If one is alive, so is the other. If one is a person, so is the other. If one has a soul, then so does the other. If one is a little blessing that happened for a reason and must be protected, then so is the other.  When you say that “Rape is the exception” what you betray is this: It isn’t about a life. This isn’t about the little soul sitting inside some person’s womb, because if it was you wouldn’t care about HOW it got there, only that it is a little life that needs protecting. When you say “rape is the exception” what you say is this: You are treating pregnancy as a punishment. You are PUNISHING people who have had CONSENSUAL SEX but don’t want to go through a pregnancy. People who DARED to have consensual sex without the goal of procreation in mind, and this is their “consequence.”  And that is gross.  ^ THIS. This is this this THIS THIS THIS. THIS!!!!! This is probably the strongest and well worded/supported argument for abortion that I have ever read.

Best Friend, Fall, and Future: WILLIONAIRE MENTOR LOVE YOUR LIFE, NOT THE IDEA OF SOMEONE ELSE'S. Fall in love with your life! Read on👇 Here are a few ways to love your life: - ✔️Choose happiness. We often think of happiness as something that happens to us rather than something we choose. To start loving your life, make a conscious decision to start thinking more positively. It is important to remember that while you can’t always change what happens to you, you can change how you react to it. ✔️Live in the moment. Many of us find it difficult to enjoy the present because we are so busy dwelling on the past and worrying about the future. While learning from the past and planning for the future can be beneficial, try to make sure you are spending the majority of your time focused on enjoying the present. 😉 ✔️Be your own best friend. In order to truly love your life, you need to start to love yourself. We often see ourselves in the worst light, particularly when life isn’t going how we want it to; however, it is important not to be hard on yourself and blame yourself just because you feel something in your life hasn’t worked out. Rather than focusing on harsh comparisons with others and all your perceived faults, try regularly reminding yourself of all the good qualities you have to offer and all the successes and achievements you have accomplished so far, and learn to appreciate the unique person that you are. - Let me know how you like this tips!

Elsa, Fuck You, and Funny: This is Tim Tim is on the internet He see's something that offends himm Tim-ignores it ana moves on WIth his life Good move Tim angstbotfic: sleepydumpling: kick-in-des-moines: kuroba101: slappedyak: notbrokejustspent: Dear tumblr consider this Tim sees a racist slur being used in the youtube comments section. He ignores it, and moves on with his life. Tim watches a bulletin on the news about a transwoman violently assaulted in her home. He ignores it, and moves on with his life.  Tim hears an employee at work using homophobic language at a gay co-worker. He ignores it, and moves on with his life. Tim sees a woman getting verbally harassed by a group of men on the street on his way to work. He ignores it, and moves on with his life. Tim can ignore it because his life isn’t dominated by things like racism, sexism, homophobia or transphobia.  Silence. Is. Compliance.  Fuck you Tim. You can try to make the world a better place. It’s funny because people who say that don’t think it’s reasonable to get offended by rape jokes or transphobic jokes but then will have tantrums over jokes about white men. I’m glad someone addressed this. well that escalated quickly.  lots of slippage here between “offense” and “inequality and/or violence.”  Category A: if it JUST offends you, like someone’s taste in tsatskes might offend you, make like Elsa and let it go.  Category B: if it is actively perpetuating harm, particularly to minoritized populations, say something.  people who get pissed about “SJWs” think B things are A things, are just personal taste things, and therefore that people who react as if they are B things are overreacting. that’s a problem. and maybe that’s what this post was about, saying A but actually what they were talking about is B. but what it looks like in the reblog chain is taking an A thing and treating it like a B thing. and that causes problems of its own (though less severe, obviously, in the grand scheme of things).
