why are blonde jokes so short?
so men can remember them
this took an unexpected turn
Not if you just asked for directions.
Opinions are like orgasms: most girls aren’t taught that it is okay to have their own and are only expected to further men’s.
With contraception, the sexual act suddenly loses its deeply personal meaning.
A well-written article about the problem with contraception.
A well written article that finally confirms what we’ve all known for a very long time: Pro-lifers aren’t really as much concerned with lowering abortion rates and saving babies as they are with the sex you’re having.
Seriously? I highly doubt even the author of this article hasn’t had some form of recreational sex not intended for reproduction. We’re humans, it’s what we do.
If the main concern of the pro-life movement was actually reducing the amount of abortions that happen they wouldn’t really give a shit what kind of sex you were having as long as it’s consensual and safe.
EVERYBODY LISTEN UP BECAUSE I LEARNED SOMETHING THIS WEEK
I was listening to Frank Schaeffer, a religion commentator whose father actually invented the modern-day pro-life movement, talk about the roots of anti-abortion sentiment. Did you know that being “pro-life” is a relatively new phenomenon? The movement was created as a response to feminism and the sexual freedom of the 60s. Older white upper-middle-class Americans (familiar dynamic much?) wanted to push back against what they perceived as the growing promiscuity of the younger generation. Conservative candidates needed an issue to support to show that they disagreed with those evil slutty girls and free-loving hippies. But they couldn’t suggest making sex illegal.
So while they realized they couldn’t directly punish sex, they *could* punish the people who HAVE sex and try and deter easily impressionable young people from having it. So they decided to create the “pro life” movement.
Have you ever wondered (rhetorical question coming here) why the pro-lifers don’t care about food stamps, universal healthcare, affordable childcare, or improving education? Or funding Planned Parenthood or anything else that’s proven to decrease the number of abortions that occur? Because preserving the lives of children was never the point. It was to demonize and punish people who have sex by telling them they would be legally forced to carry a pregnancy to term and give birth. They didn’t care, and don’t care, about the life of the mother or anything that happens to the baby once it’s born. The movement was founded as a political ploy to guilt, shame and punish women for having sex.
(ETA: Seeing this post reminded me that I wanted to write up the history of the pro-life movement. I forgot to respond to the post itself. Sex is meaningless when you aren’t actively trying for a baby? HASHHAHSHHHAHAHAH ok then.)
Sex Worker: Still not asking for it by dyke-recovery
I’m a feminist and a sex worker and i am so very, very sick of the “is it rape or theft if you fuck a hooker?” or the i use to get “You work in a strip club you shouldn’t get pissed off when someone tries to touch you, you’re the one working there”. Sorry but this is a service, not the selling of ones’ body or body parts. We own us, we decide how much we do, NOT the client or patron. We have the same rights as every other woman; to feel safe not only in our personal lives but in our work lives. It is not okay to do more than what is agreed to when paying for a service from a sex worker. If you are told no, you are told NO.
If a banker gets robbed did he deserve it because he is a banker? No.
If a soldier is shot during war, did he deserve to be shot purely for being a soldier? No.
Does a psychologist deserve to be verbally attacked because they’re paid to listen to other people’s thoughts? No.
So does a sex worker deserve to have their services abused purely because they are working in the sex industry? No.
Um I’m pretty sure a “sex worker” is just a fancy term for prostitution so I think that deems your argument invalid
Um actually a sex worker is a prostitute, a stripper, a cam worker, a porn star a porn model, a sugar baby so no my fucking argument is not invalid and if a prostitute says “hey man i don’t do x service” THAT DOES NOT GIVE THE CLIENT THE RIGHT TO DO X SERVICE JUST BECAUSE CLIENT HAS PAID FOR A SERVICE AND IF A SEX WORKER OF ANY KIND INCLUDING A PROSTITUTE SAYS NO THE ANSWER IS NO. “NO” DOES NOT BECOME INVALID JUST BECAUSE THE PERSON SAYING NO IS A PROSTITUTE.
Guys I’m allowed to say “no” to helping someone buy dog food if I’m too uncomfortable with them. Restaurants are allowed to say “no” so servicing you if they feel uncomfortable. Bars are allowed to say “no” to selling someone drinks, and they can kick you out of a movie theater for being disruptive.
If you’re threatening violence at any place of business, that business is allowed to refuse service.
So why would a sex worker have any different rights?
That’s clever. Using this argument forever, now.
pissed that this even had to be said.
The two smartest men on the planet.
Just one of those posts you can’t not reblog.
While someone rightly pointed out that the correct answer would have been Happy, they were smart to keep their mouths shut.

That’s not the Media Matters headline, but it’s an accurate one.
This is an amazingly powerful, clear and well-researched article that exposes how the “pro-life” movement is anything but.
