Why I Am Wary of Planned Parenthood Abandoning the Pro-Choice Label (via The Feminist Anthropologist)
“Claiming the pro-abortion label does not mean that we believe that abortion is always good, positive, or necessary. It does mean, however, that it can be. That abortion is an option for someone facing a pregnancy, and that it is an option that is just as valid as the choice to parent or pursue adoption. Abortion can be an empowering experience. When you are pregnant and you don’t want to be, the ability to take control over your life, your future, and your body can be positive. Claiming the pro-abortion label reflects these diversities of women’s lived experiences and accurately reflects what we are fighting for.”
In the cultural climate at hand, “fat” becomes the new mother F word, and to be described as such becomes the boggart lurking in millions of cupboards today.
What is slut-shaming?
I want to marry this girl.
“When a law has outgrown time and necessity, it must go and the only way to get rid of the law is to awaken the public to the fact that it has outlived its purpose and that is precisely what I have been doing and mean to do in the future.”Emma Goldman to the Press, a few days after her arrest in New York City, February 11, 1916 (via spittingwhys)
