tempest in a teapot

Sup, playa?   Proud member of the Trifecta (Liberal, Feminist, Socialist.) Hedonist. Anti-theist. I enjoy wanton harlotry and inappropriate jokes.

    I’m watching my country callously murder a human being.

    I sat here all night with hope, knowing that Troy Davis would get a the stay of execution. Reasonable doubt was abundant! So many of people of importance were speaking out! Millions were signing petitions and calling and protesting! And then he’d eventually be freed! And he’d get deserved money from the state and they’d make a movie and eventually Davis would die of old age surrounded by his family. I just knew it.

    But no. Injustice, racism, torture and murder was all I got, with indifference from our public servants. This is the bloodthirsty country I live in.

    "For the anti-choice, I believe the heart of the abortion controversy is not about the fate of unborn babies. It’s about the value of women in society. In North America, for example, many anti-abortion leaders oppose ideas and programs that could help women achieve equality and freedom, and protect the health and well-being of families. For instance, they oppose affirmative action programs that help women gain equity in the job market. They force poor women to have babies and then cut off their welfare. They lobby against health and nutrition programs for children. They condone the bombing of clinics providing reproductive services, and the killing of doctors and staff.

    These uncivilized actions reveal the true nature of anti-choice goals. They want a return to the days when women had few choices in life. They don’t like women having too much freedom, especially in controlling their reproductive lives. They’re convinced that women can’;t be trusted to make their own decisions. And they certainly don’t like women having sex for fun without paying for it."
    Joyce Arthur, summing up the anti-choice movement well. (via cognitivedissonance)
