Animals, Driving, and Family: omosexuality is Natura Bonobo Homosexuality is Natural Dolphins Bonobos Basts SwansLionsPengins Penauins Homosexuality is Natural Homosexuplity is Naturat wins sixpenceee: wubberduckzilla: asleepymonster: eyesonhorus: sixpenceee: Homosexuality is natural! Here are animal species where homosexual behavior occurs frequently.  Dolphin: Sex is often performed in non-reproductive ways, using snout, flippers and genital rubbing, without regard to gender Bats: More than 20 species of bat have been documented to engage in homosexual behavior.In the wild, the grey-headed flying fox. In wild Bonin flying foxes (Pteropus pselaphon), males perform fellatio or ‘male-male genital licking’ on other males. Male–male genital licking events occur repeatedly several times in the same pair, and reciprocal genital licking also occurs.  Bonobos: which have a matriarchal society, unusual among apes, are a fully bisexual species—both males and females engage in heterosexual and homosexual behavior, being noted for female–female homosexuality in particular. Roughly 60% of all bonobo sexual activity occurs between two or more females. Sexual activity is the bonobo’s answer to avoiding conflict. Swans: An estimated one-quarter of all black swans pairings are of males. They steal nests, or form temporary threesomes with females to obtain eggs, driving away the female after she lays the eggs.  Lions: Both male and female lions have been seen to interact homosexually. Male lions pair-bond for a number of days and initiate homosexual activity with affectionate nuzzling and caressing Penguins: Penguins have been observed to engage in homosexual behaviour since at least as early as 1911. In early February 2004 the New York Times reported that Roy and Silo, a male pair of chinstrap penguins in the Central Park Zoo in New York City had successfully hatched and fostered a female chick from a fertile egg they had been given to incubate. Other penguins in New York zoos have also been reported to have formed same-sex pairs. In Odense Zoo in Denmark, a pair of male king penguins adopted an egg that had been abandoned by a female, proceeding to incubate it and raise the chick. (Source) Homophobia on the other hand, only exists in one species: HUMANS You can order a shirt here Please also note we are the most closely related to bonobos I just bought this for my mom for mother’s day. She gets a lot of flack from her family about shit like this, so I think she’ll be proud to have it. Fun-filled fact, homosexuality is present in across nearly every taxa and is an expression of biodiversity. Being gay is as natural as having ears. Kinda shocked at the homophobia in the comments! But even more reasons to promote this shirt ;)

Choose One, Life, and Money: BREAKING: House passes H.R.7, barring women from using insurance to pay for abortion. It also makes the Hyde amendment permanent. 1/24/17, 8:52 PM thefingerfuckingfemalefury: prochoice-or-gtfo: ouyangdan: stand-up-gifs: sullengirlalmlghty: apparentlyeverything: Senate Democrats are expected to filibuster, so tell your Democratic Senator (and the two pro-choice Senate Republicans, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski) that you don’t support this bill and don’t want it to pass the Senate.   http://www.cosmopolitan.com/politics/a8635781/house-passes-hr7/ The bill, which passed by a vote of 238–183, codifies the Hyde Amendment, a rule passed in 1976 that prohibits any taxpayer money from being used to fund abortions. What H.R. 7 will do, in effect, is cut off taxpayer funding to insurance plans that choose to cover abortion, even though those funds have been prohibited for use on abortion care ever since the Hyde Amendment was passed four decades ago. That’s why the bill’s title, “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2017,” is misleading — it’s already illegal in the United States for federal tax dollars to be used to fund abortions. H.R. 7 also takes the Hyde Amendment a bit farther and would prohibit abortion coverage from being offered in multi-state health insurance plans created under the Affordable Care Act. According to a statement released by the Center for Reproductive Rights, the bill would cause millions of American women to lose insurance coverage for abortion. Heads up, especially to my Maine and Alaska followers who could flip Collins and Murkowski. Call your senators.  RITE SO LISTEN UP KITTENS AUNTIE OYD HAS SOME IMPORTANT INFO: guess what? this affects like, every insurance ever. even those of us who have good insurance like tricare. the hyde amendment already makes it impossible to get abortions in any tax-funded facility (like u.s. military treatment facilities anywhere in the world) UNLESS you can prove an imminent threat to the pregnant person’s life. now idk what kind of exceptions we are talking about (if any) with h.r. 7., but you really have to think about what sorts of reasons people have abortions. they’re not always choice or convenience (most of you know this but it bears repeating for the people in the back) but it’s okay if that is why you choose one. but sometimes there are time-sensitive emergencies and even medical professionals don’t treat them as such. this means termination of ectopic pregnancies may not be covered until something ruptures, which could kill you pretty damned fast. i had to wait two days for blood work to verify that i was at risk with high enough hormone levels before my insurance would allow me to get an abortion. another friend of mine was forced to carry her dead fetus because induction is considered abortion. she ended up getting a severe infection that threatened her life and eventually caused her to go into labor where she delivered a baby she already knew was dead. but this took weeks. and if you’re stationed in a country that outlaws abortion, you have absolutely no recourse unless you can get leave and afford to fly to another country (or find unsafe means like the marine who used the cleaning rod for her weapon on herself) . the hyde amendment on its own is terrible and scary and puts lives at risk. this spreads this shitshow around to the rest of y’all who may have had coverage for these things up until now, and basically screws all of us over and threatens lives. Call. Your. Senators. Now.-V CALL YOUR SENATORS AND TELL THEM TO FILIBUSTER THIS MISOGYNISTIC GARBAGE

Appalled, Ass, and Bad: Lauren Sewing Cloth Menstrual Pads 3 hrs- Laurel Park, VA - Ok, so I've got to ask. What exactly are postpartum pads for..? I'm due in January and I have a feeling people aren't telling me about something that happens to your body after childbirth. Is it that you can't hold your pee very well or is it blood? Comment Like poetrypirate: eevee-morgan: brandx: deanplease: dreaminpng: un-ptit-spleen: petitedeath: kaxen: typingsdrawings: slushiebear: rosietwiggs: love-pro-choice: evashandor: skeleton-warrior: wtfzurtopic: sora2522: gallicinvasion: gallicinvasion: Another woman utterly failed by our society’s devaluation of women’s reproductive health. We can’t wait around for male doctors to decide what we need to know. This is why we need to take control and educate ourselves about our own bodies. and here’s some comments i saw under the post. why is this a pattern?? why is this a recurring theme?? why is this information not common knowledge? what the fuck are doctors doing?? This is news to me so let’s share it so people will know! Gross tmi: but i passed a pretty big clot after having my daughter. It was about the size of a baseball. It actually hurt worse because while 15 hours of labor opened my cervix, i passed the clot in 30 minutes. I knew it was a possibility because of my midwife and reading, but everyone Ive told after this (mostly other pregnant women) were shocked that this could happen. In our culture, it’s much more common to do deep research about what family cars we want to buy than we do about childbirth when we ’re pregnant. Tmi: I passed a huge clot after birth in the bathroom of my hospital room and called the nurse sobbing because I didn’t know it was normal. She treated me like an idiot, but NO ONE told me it was a possibility. And the pain associated with healing for the first couple of weeks after birth was worse than the labor imo. Again, I had no idea. They didn’t tell me a thing besides “sitz bath regularly and change your pads.” Before discharging me from the hospital. I was most definitely told about this in school. Fucking hell, 4-6 weeks of bleeding? My periods were/are bad enough, why the hell don’t we get told this? I didn’t know it could last so long, wtf? Is the bleeding inevitable after birth?  Bleeding is inevitable after birth - your uterine wall is shedding a fuck ton of lining. It can last from three to six weeks (possible longer) and it tapers off. More TMI - I passed a MASSIVE clot after my fourth birth. At this point I already knew this could happen - it’s normal. What I DIDN’T know, was that I had caused it. My post birth contractions were so bad after the birth that it felt like full transition labor. And they don’t give you anything for the pain. So I used a hot water bottle, without the nurses knowing, and it caused me to bleed even more. I lost so much blood that by the first time they sat me up to go to the bathroom, I fainted. It took three more tries until I could sit up. Anyway, that’s not the point. The point is, the next morning I passed a clot the SIZE OF ANOTHER PLACENTA I KID YOU NOT, and I know what is and is not normal. So I called for the nurse and through the door told her I had passed a huge clot, and her response was - “It’s not big. I know what big is.” She hadn’t even looked. So I rolled my eyes and said, “Yeah, no. It’s big, I’m telling you.” So, sounding extremely put upon, she asked me to open the door. I did, and after a long pause she goes, “Okay, yeah, that’s a little big.” YOU DON’T SAY. The point I’m trying to get across is that this shit is so common - women not knowing this stuff is so expected, and it keeps getting reinforced. People don’t expect you to know anything, don’t teach you anything, and then make you feel like you’re totally ignorant and a burden for your lack of knowledge when THEY WON’T SHARE. Fucking learn EVERYTHING you can when it comes to childbirth, girls. It is the single most empowering thing you can do for yourself. And if you missed something, that’s okay. But the more knowledge you arm yourself with, the more in control of your situation you’ll be. A few post partum tips: DON’T use a hot water bottle - lol. ONLY pads - NO tampons. Tampons can cause severe infection, not to mention, you probably don’t want to be shoving anything up there any time soon. If you’ve had stitches, sitz baths DO help relieve the pain. Another great pain reliever? Dampen some pads and freeze them. Let one thaw slightly and use it on top of another pad. This will help with the pain as well as reduce swelling. Change the pad out as soon as it’s thawed completely. This REALLY helps on the first couple days after giving birth. If you pass a clot, don’t sweat it. Even the one I passed, which was fucking massive, just required that we keep an eye out to make sure it didn’t happen again. If it does, talk to your doctor. Take a pain killer half an hour before nursing. Because YES - your uterus is contracting after you give birth, to get back to its original size, and nursing causes much stronger contractions. Taking nursing-safe painkillers won’t prevent the pain, but it will reduce it.  Buy disposable underwear for the first few days after birth. They will get VERY dirty. Or use your ratty old pairs that you’re ready to get rid of. Double up on pads - line them all the way up your ass-crack. I am so serious. And wear dark pants. Pee in the shower. You do NOT want to wipe down there right after birth because ow. Peeing in the shower lets you just rinse afterwards. Especially if you’ve had stitches, peeing in the shower, with the shower-head rinsing AS you go, keeps stinging to a minimum. And fuck everyone else - keep on peeing in the shower until you feel ready to move back to toilet paper. Middle of the night and need to pee? Get your pants off - get in the shower and just go. This is just a few things, but PLEASE feel free to send me an ask if you have any questions about ANYTHING childbirth/pregnancy/nursing related. I have four incredible kids. I’ve done it all - c-section, vacuume birth, episiotimy, stitches, with an epidural, without an epidural. I’m here. ….I know I keep reblogging this but people keep adding super important information. I feel like no one tells women this stuff because if a woman was even a little on the fence about having a baby before this would kinda make them run for the damn hills. …..you are correct, typing. 300% EXTRA SURE I’M NOT HAVING BABIES.  peri bottles, witch hazel or anti-pain anticeptic spray are your friends. Also passing large clots after birth is a WARNING SIGN. Bigger than a half dollar is a sign that you have not passed your entire placenta (this is most common in hospital vaginal births where the mother is not allowed to naturally birth the placenta and instead has it ripped out by the doctor) if there is any placenta left in your uterus you can get extremely ill. This happened to both myself and my mother in law WOW I didn’t know any of this and I’m terrified of what more I’m unaware of about my own body :( Honestly when will we fucking abolish this taboo about the female body… I had pretty great sex ed in school (lots of contraceptive information, and totally acknowledged that teenagers might have sex) and all of this is news to me. And, as a 28-year-old person with a uterus, I’m extremely appalled I’m just learning this. Long, but very important information, even for those who don’t plan to have children, because you will almost certainly know someone who will, and you might be able to to help them. Or at least increase your level of empathy for them. …HOLY HELL. REBLOG TO SAVE A LIFE, SERIOUSLY. people loooove to make out like pregnancy and childbirth are this beautiful thing that a woman’s body is made to do, and leave out all this incredibly important and scary info. the healthcare system fails women in so so many ways, especially around sexual and reproductive health, and it needs to stop. What the fuck first of allSecond Idk if having a kid is worth this now.
