Alive, Bodies , and Brains: ilthat TIL that due to their small brains koalas are unable to perform complex, unfamiliar tasks such as eat leaves off of flat surfaces. via reddit.com toast-potent how are they even alive kickin-jeans eucalyptus trees are full of flammable oil that causes the trees to explode during forest fires, killing other trees and spreading its seeds to grow in their place koalas survive solely because nothing else in their environment Wants To Eat The Fucking Bombs humandisastersquad WROTE THIS POST#god dont get me fuckin started#the NUMBER of times ive Gone Off abt koalas in zooarch class#on a scale of koalas to wombats how good is ur marsupial at Being Alive#hey hey u know what else? koalas are s0 picky with their diet that theyll only eat the leaves of one (1) type of eucalypt#and even then ONLY specimens of that tree that are within a very tight geographic range of where the koala was born#the rescue centre in my city? they have to ship branches from all over the state bc koalas there physically Will Not Eat anything thats not#from their very very small very precise home range#theyd rather starve to death than try leaves from like the next suburb over#i have 60 other reasons why koalas spit in the face of natural selection hmu if you want YELLING i cant be bothered to list them all here#god theyre so incomprehensibly dumb. god#HEY ALSO the reason their brains are so small is bc YEah the one SINGLE species of tree they eat is incredibly toxic#their diet consists of 1 food and it is Brain-Shrinking Poison (@reyroace) reyroace oh u like that? try this one: the main natural cause of death in koalas is starvation, because 1) their dumbass teeth are SHIT. to be a herbivore and chomp cellulose all day u need some real tough grinders in there, and almost every other herbivore in nature has SOME sort of dental adaptation to make sure they dont run out of tooth by the time they hit middle age. horses have big tall teeth, wombat teeth grow forever, kangaroos have got a little conveyor belt system goin on, etc etc everyone's doin SOMETHING except fuckign koalas. idiots have tiny fuckin shortass normal teeth that do an okay job for maybe like 15 years and then wear down and leave them with ridiculous fuckin useless old man gums that do shit all. but thats fine bc all koalas do anyway is sit in trees and sleep 22hrs a day then wake up and scream and eat poison and they do this all day every day until they run out of teeth at which point they just fall out of the tree and die 2) idiots can't die any other fuckin way bc nothing in nature wants to eat them bc their bodies are chocker block with LITERAL poison. fuckin USELESS their flesh just sits around and slowly rots bc its too gross-tasting and toxic for any animal w half a brain cell to think abt going near it. have yall ever seen koala viscera. bc i have and let me tell u that shit is RANK. looks like the inside of a smoker's lung from some fuckdamn nicabate ad bc the tannins in eucalypt leaves stain their organs like khaki black. like some fuckin darklsteve irwin costume well better piss ur way right off from this one anti-steve bc thats a natural defense mechanism meant to warn u that koalas should in no way be alive and if u touch them theyll drag u into their stupid evolutionary dead-end where they get to sit around all day doin fuck all and pumpin themselves full of brain-killing poison while we run around makin them our olympic games mascots and pretending theyre cute and honest to god looking for ways to save them from the brink of extinction which actually is unnecessary bc a) theyre not really endangered at all, nature is a fuckign miracle and b) the drongos clearly want to die so i say let em reyroace by the way i never elaborated on "koalas sit in trees all day screaming" but heres a lil fuckin. heres a fun nugget heres a lil soundbyte this is what koalas sound like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v-jmeBQVQlsTU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v-O0CAx1jLbJk gallusrostromegalus My favorite story about Koalas comes from the book The Killer Koala Humorous Australian Bush Stories" By Kenneth Cook, which is an excellently good book with some A+ storytelling. he describes the Koala's "Anti-Dingo Defense", wherein they latch on to the belly of the dingo to slow down the rate at which they are being consumed alive by starving canid, gradually trn themselves around until they've got thier head in the Dingo's crotch, and then procede to BITE THE SHIT out of the Dingo's Tender Bits, whilst clowing at the ribs and projectile-evacuating thier bowels, Mr. Cook found out about the Anti-Dingo Defense beause he was tricked into 'rescuing' a bunch of koalas off an island by the promise of a Hot Date with a young lady, wondered why they were all being given armored aprons to handle the koalas with, only to find out firsthand, which pretty much ruined his prospects of a date. teratomarty What I'm getting is that koalas are basically Australian-grade Death Sloths. the more you know

The need for action was even greater in 2002 following one of Malawi’s worst droughts, which killed thousands of people and left his family on the brink of starvation. Unable to attend school, he kept up his education by using a local library. Fascinated by science, his life changed one day when he picked up a tattered textbook and saw a picture of a windmill. Mr Kamkwamba told the BBC News website: “I was very interested when I saw the windmill could make electricity and pump water. “I thought: ‘That could be a defense against hunger. Maybe I should build one for myself’.” When not helping his family farm maize, he plugged away at his prototype, working by the light of a paraffin lamp in the evenings. But his ingenious project met blank looks in his community of about 200 people. “Many, including my mother, thought I was going crazy,” he recalls. “They had never seen a windmill before.” [x] In 2014, William Kamkwamba received his 4 year degree at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire where he was a student.

Crying, Fake, and Food: W Market ian's Choice enter mothermoonie: landofdoom: sparklingwhine: panserbj0rne: thisgingerisback: One of two fake abortion clinics on the same street as the REAL center, the EMW’s Women Center here in downtown Louisville. This one is right next door to the actual clinic and this place is seriously a nightmarish hell-hole for any unsuspecting women tricked by the anti’s. They assure you this this the abortion clinic, they get you inside, and then offer you food and drink—which of course, means that once you realize your mistake, you can’t run next door and catch your actual appointment, since you need to fast. Women have come out of this building crying, and on a few rare occasions, without their pants. They take you to a back room for an ultrasound, have you remove your pants, and then begin lecturing you on the sins of aborting. They do not give you back your pants until you have listened, and a few women tricked this far refused to listen and stormed out furious, ashamed, and in their underwear. This is the anti-choice agenda—lying, tricking, shaming, and embarrassing women to the brink of hysterics in hopes that she carry the pregnancy to term. Forcing her, through lies and manipulation, to do with her body what THEY want, not what is best for her. There is no “choice” at the Louisville “Women’s Choice” clinics. Just abuse, shame, and bigots who would rather undress a woman to make her feel vulnerable and then explain how awful of a person she is than let her make HER. CHOICE. I reblogged this at first without checking if it was legit but it turns out it is legit and people need to be warned. A simple google search is all the evidence you need. Resources for women in Louisville, KY! PLEASE be aware of this. http://www.emwwomens.com/index.htmlhttp://everysaturdaymorning.net/http://abortionresource.wordpress.com/ Reblogging for links. And as a general rule: if the place says “crisis pregnancy center” or anything similar, IT IS A TRICK. Real women’s health clinics are typically called “women’s health clinics”. They do not specialize in ONLY pregnancy, because a uterus owner has more health concerns than just that uterus. Even if you get past the name, Planned Parenthood’s full description is as a health clinic, because they screen or refer to physicians who screen for cancers and diseases, as well as educate about pregnancy (yes, they can and do explain what to expect throughout pregnancy to new mothers who want their pregnancies. My mother found her Lamaze class through a PP.) Crisis pregnancy centers cannot call themselves “clinics” because they do not actually offer licensed medical care. If they try to use “clinic”, remember that ethical doctors would never use “crisis” in their practice’s name; a crisis is a difficult choice or situation, often with moral implications (i.e.: “crisis of faith”, “financial crisis”, “mid-life crisis”, etc.) It has nothing to do with receiving medical treatment. No one with a broken leg is having a crisis; they’re having a medical emergency. Words matter. I urge you to ALWAYS do your research on the clinic you plan to go to, prior to going to it. These pro-life centers are real, and they will push their agenda on you with no hesitation or shame. Planned Parenthood’s FAQ is an excellent resource to research Texas + Louisiana abortion laws.

80s, America, and Children: Ronald Reagan / Died June 5, 2004, Bel-Air, Los Angeles, CA sauvamente: lkeke35: sugarbrownbabydoll: marginalised: cflat-major: louisthesixteenth: its a national holiday Celebrating someone’s death seems like a really macabre thing to do. Like I get that people don’t like him because of how his administration dealt with the AIDS epidemic, but promoting someone’s death as a good thing doesn’t sit well with me. during his administration, we had a problem with abuse of patients in mental healthcare facilities (asylums, but don’t call them that), and his response to it was just to shut down the entire system. he closed all public mental healthcare facilities because a few of them were mistreating patients, and all those mentally ill people suddenly found themselves homeless without the skills necessary to survive in the general populous. he’s the reason why our healthcare system is so terrible, and he’s to blame for the homelessness epidemic (i’ll get into the next reason why he’s responsible for our high homeless population in a sec). millions of people lost everything because of reagan. thousands died. he also completely restructured our economy. from 1776 until he became president, we had an economic system like no other (look up the American School), but he removed most of the rules and regulations we had to keep the system in place because our system at the time limited accumulation of wealth. we had a built-in buffer that kept most people middle class. when he restructured our economy so he and his friends could get richer, reagan removed the safeguards that kept us out of poverty (most of the time), so now the lower echelons of society were in freefall towards homelessness. people lost their homes and businesses because the rich could do basically whatever they wanted now. superstores like wal-mart rose to prominence and pushed out small businesses because of this. our government also greatly reduced its expenditure on infrastructure. ronald reagan’s greed is why we don’t have enough trains and all our roads are falling apart. he also expanded our already bloated military while in power. one of his slogans was “peace in strength.” his goal for our country was to get an iron grip around the rest of the world and impose our own agendas on other countries at gunpoint. One of the first things reagan did when he came to power was to ignore the supreme court’s earlier ruling, ignore the constitution, and try to enforce a mandatory daily christian prayer time in all schools. when government workers went on strike against him and his policies, he fired 11,345 people. he put 11,345 people out of a job because they didn’t like him. he lowered taxes for the rich, but increased taxes on the poor, contributing to the aforementioned lack of infrastructure and homelessness crisis. he also began privatising the government, which put thousands of jobs at risk and made wealthy capitalists the men who run our country. reagan is responsible for trickle down economics. after the great depression, our government put in social programs to help people stay afloat, like universal healthcare for the elderly and disabled, basic income (the government paid people to dig ditches if they couldn’t find any other jobs. the ditches didn’t serve any purpose, but those people needed money and the government was willing to give money to anyone who worked), and food stamps. ronald reagan slashed all these programs and more, like the EPA, which made sure we were a “green” country. as a result of these slashes, people who had been secure on government assistance programs were now having to take out loans and get into debt, which jeopardised our economy. we had a stock market crash because people were becoming too poor to buy stocks, and our national debt increased by 3 times. we went from $997 billion in debt to $2.85 trillion in 1987. he also pushed us further into the cold war. previously, our relations with russia were cooling down a bit, but during reagan’s second term, he began actively threatening russia again. ronald reagan brought us to the brink of a nuclear war that would have killed all humans on earth. Ronald Reagan and Maggie Thatcher, the most hated prime minister in UK history, were close friends. he was also personal friends with Donald Trump. Under reagan, we resumed a history of violent military imperialism in foreign countries, most notably lebanon, afghanistan, and pakistan. In lebanon, we tried to stop a revolution against an oppressive regime, and in afghanistan and pakistan, reagan ordered the CIA to train civilians and create a military force to fight russia for us. Reagan created the taliban, a militant group that even today publicly dismembers people for playing games in public. they cut off children’s hands. He also began dealing weapons with China, betraying our longstanding ally, Taiwan, destabilising politics in the pacific. Under his orders, we secretly aided african and south american military dictatorships in crushing their opposition. He assisted Ayatollah Khomeini, the leader of Iran who started the 1979 revolution, in purging political opposition from the government. in 1988 our military shot down an iranian commercial flight, killing 290 civilians. Reagan was a Nazi sympathiser and referred to slain SS officers as “victims” of the war. just to make sure you read that right: Ronald Reagan supported the Nazis. He declared the war on drugs, a movement that has greatly increased the disproportionate incarceration rates of african american and latino men in this country. During Reagan’s second term, 115,000 people were diagnosed with AIDS and 70,000 died of it. Reagan did nothing to curb the spread, despite knowing that the AIDS epidemic almost exclusively affected black people and the LGBT community. when he learned how many people were dying and who they were, he laughed. he laughed at our suffering while we were dropping dead. In short, Ronald Reagan was a wealthy, selfish, greedy, capitalistic, imperialist, racist, ableist, homophobic, genocidal, antisemitic, warmongering, backstabbing murderer. Ronald Reagan was a monster. Wow and this didn’t even cover the crack epidemic It doesn’t cover the crack epidemic, or the various wars in South America, that resulted in the refugees immigrant crisis now. There’s a book called as the band played on about the AIDS crisis in the 80s and early 90s and how the conservative movement and Reagan basically steamrolled over AIDS activists. They basically denied that aids even existed for years before they even acknowledged it. the only reason they acknowledged it was because it started to affect heterosexual people and children. before that it was just a dreaded gay disease. Ronald Reagan was the devil and we are lucky that he is dead, but we are still suffering from his policies, rampant conservatism and his being anti anyone that wasn’t a straight white male.

Anaconda, Ass, and Concussion: this-isnt-my-bra Once my friend Henry was accused of wearing wireless headphones by a substitute so she said for him to hand them over so he took them off and handed them to her. Then later on she asked him a question and he didn't respond so she said it louder and he still didn't respond. She asked why he was not responding and he said cant understand you ma am, you took my hearing aids." lolodapsycho HOLY SHIT mamoru one time we had a sub that was handing back papers and called my name. I asked if someone could grab it for me and she started mocking me for not even standing up. taunting me asking why I was not walking up to the front to get the paper myself my classmates went dead silent and after the sub's laughter ended someone informed her that the wheelchair parked nearby belonged to me silver-rayn123 I had a sub in English once, on presentation day. And everyone goes up and does their thing, and then its my turn. The whole time im stuttering and mixing up my words, having to stop and re-say my sentences. The rest of the class is used to this and claps. However, by the time its over, the teacher is 100% done Starts saying horrible thing about how im going to have to get over my 'fear of public speaking' and how she's heard 8 year olds give better presentations (plus worse things but I don't really member them). By then im in tears and orn the brink of a panic attack, and then she starts telling me off for crying The rest of the class is horrified. Then this boy stands up. He never been my friend and we never really got along, but he'd never bullied me. He told her in a pissed off, cold voice that in freshmen year I got a concussion and that I never really recovered from it, so all that was medical related and l couldn't help it. Then he starts telling her off and the rest of the class joins him The teacher is mortified and tries to cover her ass, but the whole class walked out and that boy took me by the shoulders and we all walked to the principles office and told him what had happened. Lets just say she isn't teaching anymore Also, turns out that boy had a sister like me, who couldn't really speak. We've been best friends for 8 years and i'll be his best woman at his wedding next year. The moral is that Teachers, even subs, and adults shouldn't scold kids before knowing the whole story, because shit like that can fuck up kids self-esteem for the rest of their life Subs being the worst

If you had the ability to bring people back from the dead, you would never function like a normal human being ever again.</p> <p>Most doctors in the healthcare field have some level of God complex, surgeons are notoriously well-known for this. When you can fix a person’s body with extreme precision (and get paid a lot of money for it), you tend to become arrogant and have inflated forms of egocentricity and narcissism.</p> <p>That goes a lot further when a person solves the problem of preventing DEATH itself.</p> <p><br/></p> <p><b>What we know so far:</b></p> <p>- Mercy’s motivation to pursue medicine was the death of her parents during the first Omnic crisis. Instead of revenge, she focused on becoming a surgeon, then later made medical breakthroughs that significantly treats life-threatening illnesses and injuries.</p> <p>- Mercy has achieved a plethora of scientific advancements in applied nanobiology and cybernetics, thanks to Overwatch funding her research. She became the head of their medical research group, healing the injured during the war.</p> <p>- She is seemingly young-looking despite being 37 years old.</p> <p>- She was often at odds with her superiors and their goals, which led to allegations where she was later interrogated in court when Overwatch started to crumble from within, highlighting the politics between Morrison and Reyes.</p> <p>- Mercy was responsible for turning Gabriel Reyes into Reaper, possibly from a failed genetic alteration stated in the Visual Source Book. She’s also the one who brought Genji back from the brink of death without his consent, turning him into a cyborg. Genji hated his new cybernetic body but later found peace after meeting with Zenyatta.</p> <p><br/></p> <p><b>Thoughts:</b></p> <p>- Mercy is an advocate of peace and personally dislikes war. Pacifists are often the most dangerous since they create things that deter war entirely. Albert Einstein is a prime example of a pacifist, who later helped develop the Atomic Bomb.</p> <figure data-orig-width="837" data-orig-height="314" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/26c3c7aae8c511e090be6855b2b6e8cb/tumblr_inline_o9trjlhdYh1r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="837" data-orig-height="314"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>- Mercy disliked Overwatch’s militaristic approach, but joined them since she saw opportunities in advancing her research and personal interests.

We still don’t know what she puts on her body that it physically stops her from aging (possibly from her genetic research that involved human testing)</p> <figure data-orig-width="736" data-orig-height="567" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/ecf92cc56a4f0ef0f6a0cd5ef0dc0ae5/tumblr_inline_o9trnxync91r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="736" data-orig-height="567"/></figure><p>(Art by <a href="https://tmblr.co/mX02l3hKCpaxGnYI42iqkzQ" target="_blank">@nesskain</a> - who made the official Reinhardt and Pharah comics)</p> <p><br/></p> <p>- She fashions her Valkyrie suit in the likeness of an angel, a symbol of peace that also doubles as an outfit for one with a <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messiah_complex" target="_blank">Messiah/Savior complex</a>. People who do this wants to gain people’s trust quickly and convert them into fanatical followers. Valkyries in mythology are also called ‘choosers of the slain’, choosing who lives or who dies in battle.</p> <figure data-orig-width="900" data-orig-height="392" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/1c07b0f64342d23316f12beaaba257db/tumblr_inline_o9trziIVaj1r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="900" data-orig-height="392"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>- Raising the dead is expensive. After seeing Overwatch crumbling from within, Mercy secretly took her research with her, destroyed any traces of it in Overwatch’s HQ (by blowing it up) and possibly found new funding from private corporations and interest groups. She was also not present when their Swiss HQ was destroyed, and possibly used the Morrison/Reyes politics as her scapegoat.</p> <p><br/></p> <p>- Reyes was her human guinea pig before she perfected her Resurrection ability through advanced genetic/molecular alteration. Genji was her attempt at creating a well-endowed, cybernetic killing machine. Both had mixed results.</p> <figure data-orig-width="871" data-orig-height="347" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/0d621926bca1bca4485e35218754beb9/tumblr_inline_o9ts1qEMAz1r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="871" data-orig-height="347"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>- Mercy’s a master psychologist, forcefully creating living weapons in order to dismantle global threats (saving most for the greater good). In exchange for Genji’s new cyborg body, Genji was tasked by Overwatch to dismantle his own family, after centuries of being in power. The only reason Genji was able to do this was the clan being at weakest without Hanzo’s leadership. Its easy to call this as a Reyes/Reaper tactic, but his methods are more in line of “Getting the job done at all costs”, with little care on how much unnecessary destruction or casualties he’d accumulate during a mission. Mercy’s deal with Genji was a calculated decision, striking a threat with its own kind with surgical precision (and minimal civilian casualties).</p> <figure data-orig-width="675" data-orig-height="380" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/005a99ae2118785082c13ce23cd67ed4/tumblr_inline_o9tsgenbAk1r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="675" data-orig-height="380"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>- Widowmaker’s blue skin is also a by-product of experimental genetic modification, which parallels Mercy’s line of work (along with creating effective, well-endowed <i>ass</i>assasins). Talon was very unsuccessful at assassinating Overwatch agents, until they became brutally efficient by capturing their love ones instead and sending them back as sleeper agents through neural reconditioning.</p> <figure data-orig-width="471" data-orig-height="316" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/6b805c32d589bfeb2925b1048773140b/tumblr_inline_o9ts2n3x4v1r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="471" data-orig-height="316"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>- She clearly doesn’t want to bring Overwatch back. She has a voice that triggers in Watchpoint: Gibraltar saying <i><b>“Overwatch was shut down for a reason.

Its also the motivating force that drove her to achieve so many medical advancements in a short amount of time. She has a twisted view of saving the majority of mankind; by creating short-term crises that later results into moments of peace. Despite what happens to the world, the rest are just high-paying customers that keep her private life-extension business extremely healthy.</p> <figure data-orig-width="800" data-orig-height="382" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/aabbbadf07787330b107bc347a82cef8/tumblr_inline_o9ts68XEyn1r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="800" data-orig-height="382"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>Or… I could be wrong and she’s just a sweet, sinless angel birb mom.</p> <figure data-orig-width="1451" data-orig-height="648" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/41f3c2d3b12301df1269a3542b4b76c0/tumblr_inline_o9ts6pXGr31r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="1451" data-orig-height="648"/></figure><p>Be nice to Mercy players &gt;:3</p> </blockquote> <p>i like this Ozymandias-like evil mercy thing </p> </blockquote> <p>Well, there goes my waifu</p>

America, Animals, and Children: conservativewoman 25 delete edit I honestly dont mean this as hate, i mean this is the most respectful way possible. I really don't understand you, you are a woman, and yet you support the man who would take away abortion rights, funding for planned parenthood etc? why would you let someone just take away your rights? economically Romney has some okay policy ideas, but how can you not think about all of the people he would be harming or just doesn't care about? gays immigrants women. and again, i mean to be most respectful. forgettingmymind <p><a href="http://mezzoalex.tumblr.com/post/34885160172/conservativewoman-i-was-asked-to-make-this" class="tumblr_blog">mezzoalex</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://conservativewoman.tumblr.com/post/34834537232/i-was-asked-to-make-this-rebloggable-well-you">conservativewoman</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>*I was asked to make this rebloggable…</p> <p>Well, you don’t know me as a person very well because I am Pro-Life, and I believe that Planned Parenthood should be privately funded, not federal funded like every other business in this nation. So I agree with Mitt Romney on his Pro-Life stance, as a woman’s right is whether or not she wishes to engage in sex, not to terminate the human life she created exercising her right. I also agree with him that Planned Parenthood should no longer receive tax dollars, and instead rely on donations and competition in the free market.</p> <p>However, Mitt Romney cannot ban abortion by himself. He does have the power to appoint a Supreme Court Justice, but there is an entire system called “checks and balances” in the government. The President is not a dictator, no matter how much President Obama wishes it were. He doesn’t have almighty power; that’s why we have the House of Representatives and the Senate as well as the Supreme Court. If Mitt Romney led a campaign to end abortion, I’d be all for it. But he’d have a whole lot of work in front of him to achieve that, and it’s glaringly clear that the economy and getting people back to work is Romney and Ryan’s #1 priority along with foreign policy to keep America safe.</p> <p>Furthermore, America’s economy is on the brink of collapse. A broken economy affects every single, solitary American, not just women or immigrants or gays. I know there are women out there who want abortion. I know there are gays out there who want marriage. I know there are immigrants out there who want to become citizens. But there are the majority in this country that include men, women, straights, gays, legal immigrants, blacks, whites, Hispanics, people of every walk of life who want a better life. If they cannot get jobs, if they cannot provide for themselves, the other social issues matter very little.</p> <p>There was a gay man who once said that he would love to be able to get married. (For the record, I am pro-gay civil unions.) But he would rather have a job to go to to provide a home and a hearth for his partner and their children rather than living on the street with nothing but a ring on his finger.</p> <p>On the subject of Planned Parenthood, they will be fine in the private market, just like Sesame Street. If people want it around, they will keep it around. That’s how businesses work. But taxpayers should not be responsible for funding it, especially as doing so violates religious freedoms from Catholics, Christians, Jews, etc. who don’t support abortion. (Not to mention, many religions disapprove of contraception considering sex should be kept within marriage where the two people should be prepared for children anyway.) Mitt Romney does not want to ban Planned Parenthood; he just doesn’t think the government should be spending taxpayer money on it when we’re $16 trillion dollars in debt and counting.</p> <p>Honestly, I am very confused when people say that Mitt Romney wants to “take away my rights” as a woman. What right does a woman <em>not </em>have in this country? For that matter, other than civil unions, what rights do gays <em>not </em>have in this country?</p> <p>Both women and gays are free to vote, to speak freely, to drive, to work, to get an education, to hold hands with the ones we love, to practice the religion of our choice, to come and go as we please, to show our faces in public, to spend our money on whatever legal thing we wish, to be free. In other parts of the world like the Middle East, women are denied those kinds of rights, and if they violate any of those rules, they will be punished from physical mutilation to a bullet in the brain. In those parts of the world, gays are beheaded for being who they are.</p> <p><em>Those</em> are real rights. Those are real rights being taken away, being persecuted, being wronged. Paying for your own birth control, donating to a company you believe in yourself, and all of those social issues are merely encouraging this nation to be one of fiscal responsibility and accountability. Asking women to pay for themselves is not oppression; cutting off a woman’s nose for leaving the house without a male relative is oppression.</p> <p>I am voting for Mitt Romney because I am worried about my future and this country’s future; not as merely a woman, but as an American. It’s funny because Governor Romney has been falsely accused of being sexist when it’s been the President’s campaign who has pandered to the female vote using expressions like “vote like your lady parts depend on it,” and putting out ads that compare voting like losing your virginity. All of the focus for women from the Obama campaign has all been sexual even though women’s unemployment is 11%, and there are more women living in poverty than there ever has been in our nation’s history. Not only that, President Obama’s own female staff makes 18% less than his male staff.</p> <p>Governor Romney has been falsely accused of being homophobic when he says that while he believes marriage is between a man and a woman, gay marriage is a state issue, and should the people of the state vote in favor, so be it. He’s also fought his career against discrimination based on race and sexuality, while also showing favor to civil unions. Meanwhile, President Obama has flip flopped on this issue numerous times. While he made his pro-gay marriage stance public this May right before the campaign started for this election, just last week during his MTV interview, he said he would not be focusing on gay marriage in his second term, and said that it was a state issue. This is the exact same position Mitt Romney has, and yet, Governor Romney is the one being called a homophobe.</p> <p>Furthermore, President Obama has run this country’s economy into the ground, supports the Muslim Brotherhood who treat women and gays worse than animals, denied the ambassador of Libya and his embassy relief during a terrorist attack they knew about well in advance, and, among other things, signed the NDAA, which allows the President to arrest and detain an American citizen without cause or due process. This is not the kind of America our Founding Fathers envisioned, and it certainly isn’t the kind of America in which I want to live. And those are the pressing issues that affect every single American, no matter what their demographic.</p> <p>I understand that people have their priorities. Your priorities are clearly not my priorities. But I do resent when people (not necessarily you specifically) insist that I “should” vote for Obama simply because I am a woman. Women won the right to vote on August 18, 1920 with the ratification of the 19th Amendment. So I see this constant “You are a woman, therefore, you should vote for Obama” insistence as a threat to my right as an American. I have the right to vote however I choose. Same as any gay or black or Hispanic individual. Because we are more than just our genitalia or our sexuality or our skin color — we are Americans who want this country to thrive economically again, to be respected around the world again, to protect our own.</p> <p>I understand that your message wasn’t meant to hate or to be disrespectful. I welcome questions. I welcome discussion. I appreciate when people legitimately want to learn my side. <strong>That is what being open-minded means.</strong>It’s about learning both sides and how they feel and think, and what matters to them. Just because I don’t agree with the other side, just because I don’t bend my own values or morals or beliefs or views to surrender to the other side doesn’t mean I am closed-minded. Because I try and educate myself. I try to listen and understand. I don’t stand for hate or threats or any of the horrible crap I’ve received through Anonymous on this site. But I welcome messages like yours; ones that simply just want to know where I stand. </p> <p>I hope I’ve given you a little insight to why I’m voting for Governor Romney next Tuesday, and I hope you understand a little bit better. :) God bless.</p> </blockquote> <p>“we are more than just our genitalia or our sexuality or our skin color —”</p> <p><img src="file:///C:/Users/Owner/Pictures/GIFS/clap2.gif"/></p> <p><img height="300" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mcwdkqankJ1qm8px6o1_400.gif" width="400"/></p></blockquote>
