Doran Martell: Have you ever considered that maybe some of these girls are not yours? Their mothers could just be claiming that you're the father because they know you would give their bastard children a better life than they could.
Oberyn Martell:
Obara Sand: *fearsome warrior who aggressively hates Westeros*
Nymeria Sand: *has threesomes with identical female twins*
Tyene Sand: *poisons anyone and everyone who gets in her way*
Sarella Sand: *disguises herself as a man so she can study in Oldtown*
Oberyn Martell: Yeah I'm fairly certain that they're all mine.

I think the most telling thing about white rhetoric is the way they cling to the notion of “when did POC come here?” versus “when did white people come here?”

Because white people literally do think they aren’t the immigrants, everyone else is.

Just realized that the anti-abortion argument has a lot in common with anti-vaccers.

They’re both the products of ignorance, of a wealthy society that modern medicine has insulated from nature, from reality. 

One that doesn’t realize anymore that pregnancy kills. Not just childbirth: that pregnancy itself damages your body. That developing fetuses will strip-mine your organs, including your brain. That pregnancy and childbirth with those large brains and skulls is so taxing that female evolution for endurance has been the rate-limiting step on human evolution for intelligence, and we still had a spectacular rate of death in childbirth and death during pregnancy because that level of exertion

was still deadly for a species

that will run hundreds of miles for fun.

The female body exhibits humanity’s physical adaptations more strongly than the male body, our pelvises are different so bone spars don’t go anywhere that’ll make us bleed to death in seconds, our muscle tissue is built from the ground up to be able to power itself for hours, because it needed to be.

Deadly diseases are less common now, so people don’t see that pregnant women, already fighting to survive, have less to fight disease with. They don’t realize that reproduction has always been at the expense of the mother’s body. That it may be a price the mother considers worth paying, but it is one HELL of a price. It is not a free lunch.

And coming up short, not having the strength, means death. 

M-preg is impossible because male bodies are not built to survive that shit. Running hundreds of miles sure. Pregnancy? Childbirth? Out of their league. Those adaptations are expensive: men don’t have to be built that strong, so they aren’t.

The Puritans, the Puritans, who thought that sperm had souls, would allow anyone who wanted one to get an abortion, because well duh. Masturbation was evil, abortions weren’t, because masturbation was letting souls never be born for pleasure, while abortion saved lives. None of this ‘oh, damage to every organ in your body isn’t enough medical reason’ - pregnancy was an incredible strain on the body, heavy labor was also an incredible strain on the body, and deadly diseases happened. They believed that it was a woman’s duty to be fruitful and multiply, sure, but that meant picking when it was safest to do deadly shit, otherwise you’d be too dead to reproduce.

And of course modern society ignores that once upon a time, morality meant controlling penises, not just vaginas.

What would have once sounded like a “far-fetched feminist fantasy” – women forming the majority of a parliament – is a reality in Rwanda.
In fact, women are making gains throughout Africa, but these achievements have been met with a loud silence from the western feminist movement. 
African women are blazing a feminist trail - why don’t we hear their voices? (The Guardian)

Stop. Think. Respect.

beyondblue’s new national anti-discrimination campaign highlights the impact of racism on the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. 

Research shows that subtle or ‘casual’ racism can be just as harmful as more overt forms. Imagine being judged in a job interview by the colour of your skin, rather than the strength of your CV. How would you feel if you were watched in a shop or treated differently on public transport? 

Why should anyone be made to feel like crap, just for being who they are?   

Stop. Think. Respect. encourages everyone in Australia to check their behaviour. Stop the discrimination, think about how your comments or actions could cause real distress and harm, and respect people who are different from you.
