you ever thought that maybe the reason girls say they’re fine when they’re not, or they’re not mad when they are, is because the second they show any semblance of emotion they’re written off as hysterical “bitches” that are probably on their period?
Seriously, if you villify women for not being direct enough, I hate you.
say it with me, one more time
queer is not an umbrella term
queer cannot be applied to the entire LGBT community
queer is not a substitute word for “gay” or “lesbian”
queer is a SLUR that SOME people have reclaimed FOR THEMSELVES and when you apply it to everyone without their consent or use it as a blanket-term for every non-hetero person, you are being an asshole
you cannot force someone to reclaim a slur and you cannot call the entire community by a slur
and when you call it “the queer community” or refer to LGBT individuals as “queers”, you are excluding anyone who doesn’t want to be lumped in under a hate word they might not be comfortable with at all
don’t do this
Today, the U.S. Supreme Court is hearing a challenge to a buffer zone law that protects patients and staff at clinics in Massachusetts from anti-choice harassment and violence.
Across the country, extreme, often violent, anti-choice protesters physically block access to clinics and intimidate people exercising their constitutionally protected rights. Learn more about this issue and the laws that exist to protect patients and their doctors.
what judgement of abortion does
This is important.
I’ve done clinic escorting, and the only reason I felt even remotely safe was because of buffer zones. The protesters couldn’t come on our (I say our because I’m continuing to escort at a local clinic in a couple weeks) property at all. Like not even a toe. They placed rosaries on our fence, we were able to take them off because they are not allowed to do that. I would LOVE IT if they had to be farther away from the clinic.
I’ve been told I’m going to hell, I’m a baby murderer, a harlot, an idiot. I’ve had people in my face. One man threatened violence against my best friend and I. One protester called a mother who brought her daughter in to get an abortion a bad mother, and told her she would have abused her grandchild had it been born. These fuckers were climbing on bike racks just to peek over our fences and hold their signs and yell at women going into the clinic.
I cannot imagine what escorting would have been like had there not been a fence and some space between us. As it is the clinic experiences vandalism regularly and obviously the placement of the bike racks for the bus station causes problems as it is.
Did you know that pigs are smarter than dogs? In fact, pigs even outperform human children on cognitive tests!
Some other pig facts:
- Pigs see and dream in colour.
- Pigs enjoy listening to music and mother pigs will sing to their young while nursing
- Pigs make nests to sleep in and will make them for their friends (even if those friends happen to be human)!
- Pigs can play video games.
- Pigs are naturally slender. They only become fat when humans overfeed them.
- Pigs are sociable. They like to cuddle and snuggle up, nose to nose, with their friends as they sleep
- In the wild, and on sanctuaries, pigs live in matriarchal societies, as elephants do.
- Pigs are hygienic. When given the chance, they are more particular about their sanitary behavior than most dogs. They will not, unless locked inside a factory-farm cage, defecate anywhere near their living space.
- Pigs roll in mud to cool down and ward off parasites and sunburn, just as elephants do.
- Source and source.
Pigs are intelligent, sentient, amazing beings who deserve so much better than the horrific way they are treated on factory farms, during transport, and in slaughterhouses.
Please show your compassion for these wonderful persons and go vegan!

These magazines are scams and also misogyny.
