This is a promotional poster for a social event run by education students at the University of Tasmania. The future teachers think genocide and cultural appropriation are like, totally appropriate themes for a party. PAR-TAY.
A homemade bomb exploded at a Wisconsin Planned Parenthood. No one was injured and it caused minor damage to the building. But let’s look at the intent here. Someone intended to harm people seeking or giving MEDICAL help.
And you know, people get so shocked about this and try to claim that these things are isolated incidents and even though they’re against letting me have basic reproductive rights, they don’t want to hurt me. Yeah, well what the hell do you expect when you CREATE a hostile climate that works against me and all other people who need services at places like Planned Parenthood? You scream that I’m a baby killer and get your old white men to talk about my uterus on network news stations and then you’re shocked when someone actually turns your words and legislation into harmful actions? YOU did this. Every anti-reproductive rights fucker out there contributed to this and every homemade bomb, every dead doctor who performed abortions, and every person seeking medical treatment that was and will be terrorized by people who try to “save” lives by destroying others.
It’s like how people are soooo, so sad about lgbtq youth committing suicide because they were bullied. Yet you also don’t want to give them rights to make them just as free and HUMAN as you. You tell your kids and everyone around you that these people are all less than, something is wrong with them, they don’t deserve rights because they are deviant. Your children are listening to you! If you tell them they aren’t human then why should they give them basic human respect? They are bullying kids to the point of suicide because you’re telling them that they do not deserve the rights that they have.
So this is what happens to the “deviants and sinners” when your judgment is placed upon them. Your words, legislation and actions take away the humanity of certain people who you do not deem fit for YOUR norms and morals. Once you strip away our humanity, what’s to stop anyone from treating us with dignity? Our lives aren’t respectable. No dignity. No worth. Just a body that needs to be destroyed. And I am fucking sick of it all.
Last time the Church declared war on someone it got pretty messy. Seems the Church is ok with this when there’s someone else in the world doing something they don’t like. Ask them for justice for victims of abuse by the clergy though and they go strangely quiet.
(Follow-up to my last post - this is all just in Victoria. If other states follow suit, how much money will be spent on hate mail?)
I wonder if this is a recruitment drive for Catholicism. ‘Come to us, all ye rednecks! We embrace your bigotry and wish to nurture your antipathy towards others. Jesus loves.’
I want to make a fresh tart and let the past be whipped cream.
Martha Jones is a fucking star → Look at these fucking companions
My absolute favourite of the modern DW companions. When she showed in her first episode she could stand up to the Doctor with smarts and bravery my mum and I were genuinely cheering from the couch.
