A long conversation I had with a pro-birther about that girl who had cancer and died when she was refused an abortion to start her treatment…This one, Who failed to acknowledge the complications from both the girls disease and her pregnancy were the cause of death, and who also believes there are people who are “pro abort”.

A long conversation I had with a pro-birther. Who failed to acknowledge the complications from both the girls disease and her pregnancy were the cause of death, and who also believes there are people who are “pro abort”, and also went onto insult another females intelligence by being a disrespectful nitwit.

(hope its read-able because I know its kinda small and long.)

… lol, small and long. xD

what if tattoos just randomly appeared on our skin at key points in our lives and we had to figure out what they meant for ourselves

(A friend of mine is transgendered and going through the process of her transition. Recently, her doctor has gotten her the documents necessary for changing her gender marker on her ID. She’s still nervous in public and has asked me to come with her for support. This occurs when we go to change her driver’s licence.)
My Friend: “Hi, I was hoping to…”
(The employee at the counter appears to be glaring at her, so my friend nervously trails off and ends up staring at her feet. I jump in.)
Me: “Hi there, we just came in to get some info changed on her licence.”
Employee: “What needs changing?”
Me: “Just the gender marker for today.”
Employee: “Can’t change that.”
Me: “Oh, I know not normally, but we have all the paperwork from her doctor that should be necessary for changing it.”
(I hand the employee my friend’s papers. The employee barely glances at them.)
Employee: “Can’t change it.”
Me: “Could I ask what’s wrong?”
Employee: “This doesn’t look official enough.”
Me: “I’m sorry, could you please explain?”
Employee: “Anyone could make papers like this. I can’t change HIS gender marker with them.”
(At her clearly deliberate use of the wrong pronoun, I get mad. I make up my mind to not leave that building until I get what I need done)
Me: “It’s her, not his, and you barely looked at those papers. Now, I don’t think a quick glance at the papers and the fact that they don’t look ‘official enough’ is enough for you to turn her down here. Or, do you really have no way of identifying forms directed to you aside from how official you think they look?”
Employee: “Can’t change anything on his licence.”
Me: “I think you can, and you’re being difficult.”
Employee: “Can’t change anything on his licence.”
Me: “You’re also still using the wrong pronoun, which is discrimination. She’s a woman, the pronoun is ‘her.’”
Employee: “His licence says male. He’s a man.”
Me: “She isn’t, actually, and the fact that the licence says male is the whole reason we’re here. Because that’s not correct, and needs to be changed.”
Employee: “Can’t change anything on his licence.”
Me: “Can we speak to a manager?”
Employee: “Can’t change anything on his licence.”
Me: “I don’t think you heard me. Bring a manager out here please.”
Employee: “Can’t change anything on his licence.”
(At this point we’re the last customers in the building. Half of the other employees are silently watching this conversation play out. Most look horrified at how their coworker is acting, but none are doing anything about it.)
Me: *to another employee* “Excuse me, could you please get a manager out here for us to talk to?”
Other Employee: “The manager has already gone home for today.”
Me: “Do you have a phone number to contact them, or someone else in charge? I’d like to speak to them personally right away.”
Other Employee: “I’ll check.”
(We wait a few minutes, and a man enters through the front door of the building. He comes right over to us and introduces himself as a manager.)
Manager: “So, what seems to be the problem?”
Me: “We’re trying to get my friend’s gender marker changed on her licence.”
Employee: *to the manager* “I can’t change anything on the licence. The forms look fake.”
(The manager takes the forms from her and looks through them slowly.)
Manager: “Why do you think these are fake?”
Employee: “They look like someone could have just made them on a computer.”
Manager: “Well, yes, they’re typed out, so obviously they were made on a computer, but that’s not a reason to deny this young lady. I can’t understand why you wouldn’t just change it.”
Me: “Excuse me, sir, but I believe her reason was a bias against my friend’s gender. Throughout our conversation she kept referring to her with male pronouns, and insisted she was a man.”
Manager: *to the employee* “Is that true?”
Employee: *stays silent*
Manager: *to the other employee* “Is that true?”
Other Employee: “Well… yes.”
Employee: “His licence says male. He’s a man.”
Manager: “Oh for the love of… go start closing up for the day. I’ll finish helping these two ladies.”
(The manager quickly types some things on the computer and we get a new licence for my friend. Along with a licence is a handwritten note.)
Manager’s Note: “She’s going to be getting a detailed lesson about gender issues, and at the end of that lesson I’m firing her for her behavior. I’m deeply sorry for the trouble, and I hope you can both still manage to have a wonderful day after all that.”
(I got so many hugs from my friend, who was grinning for the next week at the new “F” on her licence!)

We were discussing homosexuality because of an allusion to it in the book we were reading, and several boys made comments such as, “That’s disgusting.” We got into the debate and eventually a boy admitted that he was terrified/disgusted when he was once sharing a taxi and the other male passenger made a pass at him. The lightbulb went off. “Oh,” I said. “I get it. See, you are afraid, because for the first time in your life you have found yourself a victim of unwanted sexual advances by someone who has the physical ability to use force against you.” The boy nodded and shuddered visibly.“But,” I continued. “As a woman, you learn to live with that from the time you are fourteen, and it never stops. We live with that fear every day of our lives. Every man walking through the parking garage the same time you are is either just a harmless stranger or a potential rapist. Every time.” The girls in the room nodded, agreeing. The boys seemed genuinely shocked. “So think about that the next time you hit on a girl. Maybe, like you in the taxi, she doesn’t actually want you to.”

#keep calm and carry on  #raise hell and change the world  

When people try and tell me that a pregnancy is a gift from “God”, even in instances of rape…

I would like to start off saying that,
No, I don’t believe in your God.

Secondly,  no,  my  body is what makes it possible
 for there to even be a pregnancy.
There is an egg, and a sperm.
God is not the magical fetus making fluid.
God is not involved in the equation.

Third off, So pregnancy after rape is a “God gift”, huh? Not just a gift, but a gift from God?
Trying to convince someone that someone who is supposed to protect people, would actually have some sick little plan that would put a survivor of rape through further pain, is just fucking sick. Really.
It dos not comfort anyone, it does not take away bruises,
 it does not turn back time, it doesn’t help end rape culture, it doesn’t take away the chance that along with a pregnancy the person might get a sexually transmitted disease from the rapist, It doesn’t take away any emotional or mental trauma, and it doesn’t give back the power taken from victims.
In fact, a statement like that tries to take away more power from these survivors.
"make the best of a bad situation", does that mean putting a rape survivor in the position to relive their rape every day of the pregnancy? Does it mean putting that person in the legal hands of a failing system that would give the rapist visitation rights and endanger both her and the to-be child?
Women (and not just women), are strong. We survive, we thrive, our rights are not negotiable, and nor should they be debatable.
If someone decides to take a pregnancy to term after a rape, that’s their private business. Whether or not it ends in abortion or birth, we should be protecting these people. Giving them what they need to have control and quality in their lives. Not making comments to try and sugar coat a serious situation or make matters worse for someone who has already been through too damn fucking much.

The views expressed were offensive. Rape is rape. And the idea that we should be parsing and qualifying and slicing what types of rape we are talking about doesn’t make sense to the American people and certainly doesn’t make sense to me. So what I think these comments do underscore is why we shouldn’t have a bunch of politicians, a majority of whom are men, making health care decisions on behalf of women.

→ Feel that pro-life love!: Todd Akin's odious rape comments are nothing new.


As you may have heard, congressman and senate candidate Todd Akin said some incredibly ignorant things about rape and pregnancy today. Basically he said that you can’t get pregnant as the result of rape, or at least not “legitimate rape”. As shocking as this may seem, it’s nothing new from the…

→ Strong like the sea: Bigot-fil-a

So I want to go to this kissing day in front of bigot-fil-a in Hollywood.

People all over the country are guna do it.

The important thing to know about this protest is no one is protesting because the owner doesn’t agree with gay marriage, people are protesting because the owner of chikc-fil-a gives part of its profit to homophobic hate groups, like the ones that think they can “cure” gay.

Its one thing to have your opinion, and another to actively fund hatred, ignorance, and suppression. I don’t care how many gay people that place hires, if you still fund things like that, it speaks louder than a thousand words. And no one needs chik-fil-a to speak when its bigoted customers do.

“I support your company because it hates gays” Said one of them. You don’t need a better example than that. With teenage suicides and anti lgbt hate crimes happening these days, the difference between acceptance and tolerance is critical. It comes down between hate and love, bigots gather to spread hate, and we gather in the name of the power of love.
