Society’s recipe for the impossible girl my brother should marry (part 2/2 of a series) /// r.i.d  (via communistmanipesto)

(via periodictrends)

Date a girl who reads but not someone who has strong opinions she must be educated but you must be smarter than she is, sleep with whomever you want but bring only the virgin home to mom, make sure she’s funny wild wacky but not too energetic not too loud, give her a dark side but only one that’s easily cured she’s got to love video games but you have to be better at them make sure she’s a writer make sure at least once you break a poet’s heart, it makes you immortal when she spills your history onto pages filled with her pain - be sure to call her insane to your friends, shake your head, wonder aloud what the fuck is wrong with her for loving someone, for loving you, drag her name through the mud just because she was stupid enough to believe everything you told her - make sure she has good fashion sense and tasteful makeup but isn’t obsessed with it just so you can show her off to your friends but at the same time be sure she’s still attractive in sweats measure her waist with your fingers to ensure she is skinny but only naturally so, don’t you know bones are for dogs but too many curves and she’s not good at all, feel free to make fun of her salads and yogurts and granola, disregard the idea that she’s doing this all for you and she wants to sit around and eat cake instead of impress you, make sure she has some kind of cause but never one that shouts too loud, a girl who likes art a girl who likes math a girl who likes anything just as long as it isn’t too much that’s just annoying, a girl who likes to cook and will take “get back in the kitchen” as a joke, who likes to clean but doesn’t mind your mess, who is calm but passionate but exercises good judgement but is willing to take a risk who wants kids but only when you suggest them who is practical but believes in magic who is gentle but fucks hard who is pious unless you are in private who bends her knees for god but also to suck your dick who responds to your every touch like she is made thoughtless by it but still has some kind of mysteriousness who is obedient but independent loving but hard to get caring but not clingy talented but willing to give up her passions for you - but no, don’t worry about who you are or how you act. She’ll change to please you. You don’t have to be a good husband, she will believe she has to be perfect no matter what happens. The only flaws she is allowed are tiny ones. Girls need to be capable, honest, needing. Who cares if a girl like this doesn’t exist. We’ll convince them all to read our requirements and make themselves fit.

Anonymous asked: Um. Abortion IS murder. You're killing a person. THAT'S MURDER. My tax dollars should not pay for your baby holocaust.


Answer:

kim-jong-chill:

the definition of murder is, in case you weren’t aware, “the unlawful killing, with malice aforethought (premeditation), of another human.” did you notice the “unlawful” part? abortion is legal, i.e. lawful, and is therefore disqualified as murder by the very definition of the word. 

the only time an abortion can legally be considered murder, at least in the united states, is if the fetus has been gravely injured during the commission of any numerous federal violent crimes, thanks to the unborn victims of violence act, which i actually agree with. this bill explicitly contains a provision for the exception of abortions and doesn’t permit prosecution “of any person for conduct relating to an abortion for which the consent of the pregnant woman, or a person authorized by law to act on her behalf.” roe v. wade was decided on 41 years ago and still stands today, nullifying your argument; the right to privacy under the due process clause of the fourteenth amendment certainly extends to a woman’s decision to have an abortion (until viability).

the definition of personhood isn’t universal — we know this. there will probably be no single definition of it, either. you have the right to choose how you define personhood, but i’m sure you would be outraged if that right were taken away. women have the right—a constitutional right, i might add, that has been recognized in the united states for 41 years—to choose how and when their pregnancy will end, should they not want the child they are carrying. it doesn’t affect you whatsoever if it isn’t your pregnancy. you don’t get to control reproductive rights of anyone but yourself based on your moral standards. morality is different for everyone and is not a universal concept, much like the definition of “personhood” is not.

as for your “tax dollars” paying for a “baby holocaust”, the hyde “amendment” (technically, it’s not a permanent law, but it’s a rider that has been attached to appropriations bills since the late 1970s) bars the use of federal funds to pay for abortions that are not medically necessary or are not because of rape or incest sought by women on medicaid. however, 32 states and D.C. provide abortions in cases of endangerment, rape and incest for low-income women. (this is the federal standard — states must meet this requirement; one state doesn’t meet this requirement, however, and provides abortions only in cases of life endangerment). 17 states provide funds for all or most medically necessary abortions. of those 17, four do this voluntarily and the remainder because of a court order to do so. these are deemed MEDICALLY NECESSARY, these are not women who seek abortions “just because” (although i’m not sure any woman does that in the first place). there are similar measures in place that bar the use of federal funds for abortions for women who are in the military, women who are in federal prisons, women receiving healthcare through the indian health service, and women who are federal employees and rely on its health benefits program.

and really, stop comparing a woman’s right to an abortion to the holocaust. it’s disgusting and completely unjustifiable. there are numerous motives a woman may have for seeking an abortion—motives that an anti-abortion ohio representative has publicly admitted to never considering—but i can assure you they are not the same motives facilitators of genocide and systematic extermination have. women seeking abortions are not motivated by hatred of unborn children but rather how their own life will be affected by giving birth to a child (and usually it won’t be in a positive way,  especially for women who are in poverty and the minority), and how decent a life they can provide for a child. 

please don’t send me a message this stupid ever again.
