I got a ton of unlisted side blogs, so don't freak out if some weirdo (me) with no shared interests follows your blog.
Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family.
More proof, to me, that pro-lifers are only concerned with playing the part and appeasing their own conscience/moral dillema. They don’t care about the consequences or how it affects other people, so long as they can go to bed at night telling themselves they believe in the “right thing.”
The right thing according to them, according to the acceptance of their family and/or peers, or their god. It’s all about the pro-lifer(s), and not at all about actually being concerned about the women or the fetuses involved in the process.
I think netflix made a mistake..
Laughed so hard I could barely click the reblog button
oh mY GOD CAN YOU IMAGINE THO
How to tell if it was a gunshot or fireworks: gunshots don’t echo, fireworks do.
thaNK YOU SO MUCH
the fact that anyone might commonly need to know this terrifies me
clearly you’re not from america
And that about sums it up.*
*Yes, there are other countries where you play the game too, but for such a supposedly peaceful and safe and enlightened country, OY.
What the fuck do you mean, gunshots don’t echo? Have you ever been to a gun range? Guns very much do echo.
More Macklemore, less Robin Thicke.
And yet a huge percentage of Tumblr hates him. Not trying to be confrontational, but could someone please explain to me why this is?
Because he is a straight white guy and Tumblr isn’t always right.
Yup. A lot of people like to ignore all the good things he does simply because he is part of the privileged. Never mind that he flat out acknowledges this in Same Love. (“I may not be the same, but that’s not important.”)
BLESS YOUR SOULS.
BLESS YOUR FUCKING SOULS.
I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT STAND THAT FUCKING A LOT OF TUMBLR HATES MACKLEMORE.
BECAUSE HONESTLY, HE WAS EVERYTHING THEY WERE COMPLAINING WHITE PEOPLE AREN’T AND NOW THAT THEY GOT A FUCKING ROLEMODEL THEY SUDDENLY COMPLAIN?????? BECAUSE HE’S WHITE?????
Macklemore grew up privileged, yes, but he understands the inequality and the disturbing gap between rich and poor. He has a song called White Privilege:
"Hiphop started off in a block that I’ve never been to
To counter act a struggle that I’ve never even been through
If I think I understand just because I flow too
That means I’m not keeping it true, nope.”
"But as I’m blessed with the privilege, they’re still left with the scars"
AND HAVE YOU HEARD HIS SONG CLAIMING THE CITY???
"I grew up on Capitol Hill,
With two parents and two cars.
They had a beautiful marriage, we even had a swing set in our yard.
My mom didn’t have a job, because my dad made enough money that we could live comfortably and he could support us.
Now, he commute to Tacoma, so we knew we be good.
But then I realized everybody looked just like me in my neighborhood.
I go to school, which was diverse.
But indeed us, I got sandwiches and Capri Suns well my friends ate their free lunch.
It’s crazy trying to look back, cause when I was growing up
I didn’t understand the fact was there’s something called a social status.
And my black friends wanted my financial bracket.
And then my city’s divided,
From neighborhood to neighborhood
We’re polarized but we claim we’re progressive.
The police shoot in the hood but never once in my residence.
As a white person been shot at we’d stopped in a Lexus.
And to think that we have claimed that so much has changed”
OH GOODNESS ME, HE’S SUCH AN ASSHOLE. HE’S SO PRIVILEGED GOD.
HOW ABOUT A WAKE???
"Don’t wanna be that white dude, million man marchin’
Fighting for our freedom that my people stole
Don’t wanna make all my white fans uncomfortable
But you don’t even have a fuckin’ song for radio
Why you out here talkin race, tryin’ to save the fuckin’ globe
Don’t get involved with the causes in mind
White privilege, white guilt, at the same damn time
So we just party like it’s nineteen ninety nine
Celebrate the ignorance while these kids keep dying.”
Tumblr needs to hop down off it’s high fucking horse and instead of turning against a potential role model and ally to all that they’ve been fucking preaching about JUST BECAUSE HE’S PRIVILEGED AND WHITE, maybe make him an icon because he’s not rapping about disrespecting women. He’s making a small change. But because he grew up with a well structured family environment and he was able to afford everything he desired, he’s suddenly the enemy.
Macklemore hate is proof that Tumblr’s brand of militant social justice is just made up of a bunch of people with either a victimization fetish and/or a hateful, angry heart seeking acceptable targets, and they then proceed to poison the people that really just want to do good, ultimately mangling a good cause beyond recognition.
And 99% of people who complain about the first lyric of “Same Love” have never actually listened beyond that. Somebody tells them “The song starts with ‘when i was in the third grade i thought that i was gay’” and they start clutching their pearls because surely the whole song is just some straight dude making lgbtqa rights all about him and how he thinks because he thought he was gay when he was eight he knows all about it. And maybe it’s not the best way to word the beginning of the song, BUT IF YOU ACTUALLY LISTEN OR READ BEYOND THAT it turns out it’s a segue into talking about ridiculous stereotypes and preconceived ideas about sexuality and questioning why someone would think it was a bad idea to be gay in the first place. And then it goes on to discuss the homophobia inherent in the music genre he’s a part of and calling his peers out on slurs and derogatory language and hypocrisy in religion, and it beautifully features Mary fucking Lambert, and goddammit I had trouble driving home when I first heard it in the car because I was fucking crying.
Macklemore is a privileged individual who consistently and vocally acknowledges his privileges and strives to use it to do legitimate good, which is everything Tumblr claims it wants, but as soon as he starts, they scream for him to shut up. Because their need to rage and scream and hate and wallow in willful ignorance is more important to them than seeing actual change take place anywhere in the world.
so glad i came across this post. you have to remember that tumblr :so called “activists” like to comment on anything that seems potentially bad, even if that means over-shadowing great points and progress that a lot of people, both gay and straight have wished for.
I’ve never seen any Macklemore hate personally, but I liked this.
I feel like we need to talk about the fact that one of Tony Stark’s descendants is a hot black girl.
WHO IS NAMED RHODEY. AFTER TONY’S BESTIE (Also known as War Machine) JAMES RHODES.
LOOK AT HER
also her eyebrow game is strong
LOOK AT HER SUIT
THE FLAWLESSNESS I CANNOT
this only has 800 something notes and that is seriously fucking sad
SIGNAL BOOST THIS SHOULD HAVE MORE THAN A FEW FUCKING NOTES REBLOG UNTIL WE BREAK THE LIMIT
plz direct yrself to THIS post if you think that comics like this are necessary and that cisphobia is a pressing issue thank you
it’s not to do with whether or not cisphobia is a genuine problem it’s about not fucking bullying people
No one is perfectly safe here unless they happen to be a person who is practically every repressed minority possible who conforms to all of Tumblr’s ideals, and even then someone would find a problem with you. No matter where you go you won’t find a true safe haven. people will always find reasons to send people hate. opinions, lifestyle, physical looks…
Seriously, guys. Just because Majority groups seem to have it made doesn’t mean that they don’t face their own problems because of it. And you don’t support one group of people by putting down another group of people. If you do that then YOU are creating the problem.
Its OK to be *insert Gender identity*
Its OK to be *Insert Sexuality*
It’s OK to be *Insert skin color*
Its OK to be *Insert body type*
It’s OK to be from *Insert country*
It’s OK to be struggling with *Insert mental or physical problems*
It’s OK to be yourself
It is NOT ok to shame, harass, bully, etc. other people for being different than you or being something they have no control over.
Seriously, don’t be a dick. Is it that hard to understand?
Here, have some scripture from the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster: “I’d Really Rather You Didn’t Judge People For The Way They Look, Or How They Dress, Or The Way They Talk, Or, Well, Just Play Nice, Okay? Oh, and get this in your thick heads: Woman = Person. Man = Person. Samey-Samey. One is not better than the other, unless we’re talking about fashion. Then, I’m sorry, but I gave that to women and some guys who know the difference between teal and fuchsia.” IRRYD:3
The gospel of the flying spaghetti monster? I’ve heard about that but never considered reading it.

Tom Hiddleston plays with his magic stick at the Thor: The Dark World press conference in Beijing. [link]
that’s not the magic stick I’m looking at
I've also prepared a safety briefing for you to entirely ignore
so if I were to wrap this up, tie it with a bow or whatever, I guess I’d say my armor, it was never a distraction or a hobby, it was a cocoon. and now, I’m a changed man.
Ugh, people still don´t get it that it´s not about a woman swinging Mjölnir but denying that woman her own identiy and simply cutting off Thors dick and giving him a pair of breasts, gender washing is not the right way, Marvel. Several women already had the power of Mjölnir and were worthy yet they all kept their personality and identity. Storm was still Storm, Natasha was still Natasha, even Jane kept to be Jane for example. Seriously, Natasha swinging Mjölnir gave me a boner… but what you are going to do with Thor is simply utter bullshit, so much shit it could have been made up by DC… Thor will still be there but somehow no and being now a women while the original one is still somewhere in the universe what the fuck? What for drug were you smoking?
I wouldn´t care if a Women would be found worthy of Mjölnir, Mjölnir does not care if its owner is a man or women, the one should be only worthy of its powers. But Thor is Thor how we know him. And most of all, making him female to please the bitchcrazy fangirls so that Thorki can be canon? Seriously? Fuck you Marvel….
Was it too hard to create a good female character? Or expanding already existing ones? THIS is now simply lazy writing, lazy as fuck… Yeah it would be great seeing another woman swinging Mjölnir but not under these circumstances….
The more I read about it the bigger is the rage in me…
PS: I don´t give a shit if the new Captain America will be black and is going to be Sam Wilson, Sam Wilson, fuck yeah! But he´s still Sam Wilson, Captain America is just a title that can be passed on *cough* Bucky Barnes *cough*. It should be the same with Mjölnir, a power that can be passed on… “Whoever is worthy…” that´s it…
