Office rivals fighting with pens stock photo….
I mean I was doing a Google search for any funny stories about people fighting FOR pens in their office, not with pens, but I’ll take it. :)
Attention Pro Life Activists!
The 41st annual march for life will take place in Washington, DC on January 22nd 2015. It begins at 12 pm in the national mall. It is a non violent peace march in defense of the unborn and to protest legal abortion. I hope some of you can join! Spread the word!
Protesting legal abortion… You ok? Do you want people to harm, and even, kill themselves because they cannot get safe access to an abortion? Not so “pro life” after all, are you?
If someone would harm or kill themselves because of pregnancy, they are in most definite need of professional help.
Oh, another thing. If they’re in need of “professional help”, as you say, then surely you can agree with me that they are not mentally stable to carry a child that they possibly did not even want in the first place to the full 9 months?
As someone with mental health problems, I can say firsthand that (As I can only speak for myself, this may not apply to everyone) I hate the idea that we cannot handle and take part in everything other people can. Pregnancy is never easy. It is putting yourself second for your child, and of course it is harder when you have a disease or condition. In the future, if and when I am pregnant, will that make my anxiety and PTSD go away? No. If anything, it will escalate them. But I am empowering myself to take on what life has to offer, because I am strong, and I think everyone should realize that they are so strong and can handle anything life has give.
Well, then you should know that you shouldn’t allow a child to be born to an environment in which they will not develop. You should know that mental illnesses can have a detrimental effect on the person’s health. You do not know, however, what it is like to be scared and pregnant with mental health issues, and a child that you do not want to bring into this world.Do you know how incredibly insulting that is? How it shows how little you really think women are strong and competent? I have an anxiety disorder and PTSD. I know damn well that I can still be a good mother to my children, and they will still grow and prosper and be loved. You do not get to generalize like that and it is horrible that your mind is truly that narrow. Sophia has a baby, an unplanned baby, named Aubrey. She loves her daughter more than anything on this planet. Her daughter is loved and happy despite Sophia’s mental health problems. Sophia is strong and beautiful.soveryprettyinpinkMercedes has mental health problems, and she has a son with her amazing wife Ashley. Kalen, her son, is such a happy little boy and Mer is actively working to improve her mental health while being such a great mom to her son. She is actually pro-choice too, and I think she is a great mom.queeringthrulife ataleoftwomoms(Her wife, Ashley) Go ahead and tell me again that children of people with mental health problems cannot “develop correctly”.
I have anxiety, ADHD, dysthymia (neurological depression), and panic disorder. I DARE you to tell me that I’m not fit enough to raise children because I have these conditions. It’s not like your reply will hold any water though, since I want 3-5 babies in the future. Women are strong enough.
As someone with mental health problems numerous enough to sound like I’m prattling off the entire DSM.. you don’t get to speak for me. If you feel like you are mentally fit enough to deal with it, yes. Good! Awesome. I haven’t seen any case, personally, where mental illness led to child abuse. Most of the kids seemed well adjusted, more compassionate, and intelligent. So yes. Totally agree that people with mental health problems can raise perfectly wonderful children.
But the problem the person’s also pointing out, from what I can tell, is that SOME people cannot go off their meds and there’s next to no effective medications that can control symptoms and be taken safely during pregnancy. It’s ableist to assume that because YOU can do it, EVERYONE can and SHOULD do it. Going off their meds could lead to severe problems FOR THEM. And THEY come first. Always. Without hesitation. If you would throw someone under the bus by keeping them in a situation where they could not take their medication, you could be costing them their job, their housing, their health, their lives. And you seem pretty okay with it. Which is sort of disgusting and very terrifying.
ok honestly more and more of these posts have been popping up and its pissing me the fuck off (not the original post itself but the endless ranting comments of insults aimed at either side). These mini battles over who’s right and who’s wrong will go NOWHERE. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and they will stick with that opinion until the bitter end. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CHANGE SOMEONES OPINION ON THIS TOPIC SO PISSING EACH OTHER OFF WITH THESE PATHETIC FIGHTS IS POINTLESS. So get over it and accept that people will always have different view points on this. Save yourself, and everyone else who has to see these posts, the trouble and let people express the way they feel about this peacefully.
Except, that is not how it goes. They are not peaceful in the least when they’re trying to pass laws that control people’s bodies. Education of the scientific facts, etc HAS changed minds. And if they don’t want to get called out, they can start an OpenDiary or LiveJournal and turn the commenting off. This site is for discussion. This site is for education. This is more than just a “teehee, we are all fwwwwwwwwwwwends.” site.
The prolife site seeks to hurt people by taking control of their choices and bodies. This isn’t about “Do you want salad or soup for your first course?” this is about BODIES. So there will be no “just getting along and shutting up.”
Not sorry. Not even sorry that I’m not sorry.
I was pro life until I educated myself about the fetus and the law

i see lucy as a racist film that plays on negative stereotypes while hiding behind the cover of (white) feminism.
all this film has done is switch out the white man for a white woman. it’s still a film about a white person getting violated by the evil poc, then gaining power and wiping them out.
here’s 2 of my favourite scenes from the trailer:
from top to left to right:
KEEP CLEAN 保持清潔，APPLE 蘋果，ONION 洋蔥，GRAPE 葡萄，
CHAIR 椅子EDIT: sorry it says ORANGE 橘子，TOMATO 番茄
traditional chinese is an actual written language used by millions of people, not symbols to be thrown around at the whim of set designers because they look cool and idk, serves to create a menacing asian atmosphere. this is so disrespectful, and made even worse by the fact that this film in set it taipei, taiwan where the official written language is traditional chinese.
it doesn’t matter that this film caters to a primarily “white” audience who won’t be able to read it, the language and culture of taiwan isn’t something for you to twist and use as you deem fit because it’s “exotic.”
lucy shoots a guy for not being able to speak english.
she l i t e r a l l y shoots this taiwanese taxi driver, in taiwan for not being able to speak english. she’s in taipei and she’s shooting people as they are of no use to her because they don’t speak english.
just think about the sort of message that’s sending out. she’s not being “bad-ass strong female character who takes no shit,” she’s saying that english is useful and better. this is the type of harmful ideology that stretches all the way back from when western countries were colonising and forcing their language and customs on other countries.
let me explain with a real life example. i was born in new zealand to two taiwanese parents. i am fluent in english, but mandarin is conversational at best. my friends in taiwan say that i am “so lucky” to speak fluent english, when they are fluent in mandarin and their english level is no worse than my mandarin. they tell me that they want to perfect their english but in the same breath tell me that mandarin isn’t worth perfecting because i have english and that’s “enough”. they also tell me how pretty my white friends are when they see pictures.
this is the type of neo imperialism ideology that they’ve grown up buying into. it honestly hurts and frustrates me that they belittle their own culture like this, honestly believing that the western world is superior. this is the type of neo imperialism ideology that this film (hopefully unintentionally) promotes: white people are better and will save the day.
if they wanted to film a movie about a white women getting back at those who had violated her, why not film it in a western country? if they wanted to film it in taiwan, why not find an asian lead actress?
i do agree that we need more women protagonists in action/superhero movies, but not like this. its not okay that the female lead needs to be kidnapped and have her body cut open without her consent in order to gain her powers, and those said those powers do not make any of this racist bullshit okay.
i am just so tired and angry of poc always being brushed off to the side as either props or villains in mainstream media.
as a poc, it’s so frustrating to see that the of the standard of beauty still white women when we live in multi-cultural societies and a diverse world.
feminism is about equality. a film in which poc are presented as evil and inferior before being killed off by a superior white woman does not promote equality.
You’re in a scary movie and the monster is about to appear…*Fancy by Iggy Azalea starts playing faintly in the background*
My dad’s asking his radio friends if they could turn any Disney character into a real life female who would it be.
I’m voting Gaston…
I mean they didn’t say Disney princess! They said Disney character. You need to be specific with your questions sirs.
Oh now they are being specific. Christ…
I want a fall season horror movie about a bunch of middle school kids that suddenly start creepily talking to their parents in the same voice tone as the cell phone apps that search things for you. (Like siri, Google and iris) And all the parents start getting really worried and scared that cellphones are talking over their children and that there’s going to be a smartphone-voiced pre-teen rebellion. But at the end you find out that a few kids really just started it at school as a joke and they’re all laughing about their parents’ reactions at lunch period.
