I can’t say again how much I love this show! I plan on doing some more artwork on it as we near the start of Season 2 in June!
that one line from mean girls no one seems to remember or quote extensively
how about “guys have to stop calling girls sluts and whores. it just makes it ok for you to call each other sluts and whores.”
how about that, instead of placing the blame on the victims of the patriarchy.
I mean she’s absolutely right, we shouldn’t call each other that, but let’s be clear: this problem did not originate with women.

Accessible government funded abortion NOW

I should have access to healthcare no questions asked. I am my own person and can make my own medical decisions.
Wonderful, if you are your own person then that eliminates the need for the community to fund your healthcare choices.
Actually no, in a civilized society, healthcare should be something that every single person has access to.
Cool! I too love a large organization with a monopoly on violence stealing from my fellow citizens (on threat of kidnapping) to fund what I believe is morally right!
Yayay forcing people to pay for my morality! Yayay forcing my morality on others! Government, my all loving and all powerful savior, thank you
Isn’t that what you’re doing when you say that people aren’t allowed to have abortions? You pro-lifers really enjoy to force your own morality onto other people.
And it’s really fucking gross that you don’t believe in healthcare for all. Conservatives are just out for themselves. As long as you’ve got yours, no one else matters, right?
This can be the thread for the healthcare discussion.
Nope, sorry to inform you but being against State involvement in healthcare does not equal being against people having access to healthcare, far to the contrary actually. Nice straw-man though.
Rather I recognize that the free market, as opposed to government control, better promotes innovation which allows for millions of lives to be saved as well as driving down costs for consumers and reducing the barrier of entry for new revolutionary (and often life saving) technologies.
A free market actually increases access. Just look up waiting periods to see doctors or get procedures done in nations around the world and see for yourself. Truth is you don’t want ‘access’ you want free stuff but nothing is free, somebody has to pay for it, and the governement is the least effeciant means of distributing wealth. Always has been, always will be.
You pro-chioces want free abortions then donate money into pots that people getting abortions can draw out of for their procedures. It will be, on average literally six times more effecient than governmental intervention.
Not to mention the public isn’t responsible for your sexual ignorance, and poor decisions.
Sexual ignorance? 54% of women seeking abortions were using the birth control at the time. And on that note, yes, the public is responsible for sexual ignorance because abstinence only programs fail to give teenagers the information they need to make informed decisions.
Poor choices? Who says sex is a poor choice? I’d rather you not force your morals on the rest of the population, but thanks.
Woah there. Before I provide a thorough response to this, let me get this straight.
You don’t want me to push my morals on the rest of the population, but you want to push your personal responsibilities (or lack there of) on the rest of the population?
That seems a little bit hypocritical.
Abortion is healthcare, not a matter of my personal responsibility. Having an abortion is taking responsibility whether you like it or not.
No one ever asks me about my reasons for having open heart surgery, but they sure as hell love to question my reasons for having an abortion or wanting birth control.
YOUR HEALTH IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
Abortion is healthcare? Does healthcare usually involve killing people? A person’s lifestyle should never be more valuable than other human being’s life
I think that people should pay for their own birth control and healthcare. I don’t think that because I’m conservative: I think that because I am an adult.
In a utopian world, healthcare would be free and available to all. That would be a lovely thing! No human being is against that idea. It’s just that our market can not handle socialized healthcare right now, end of story. People are not evil for being realistic.
Just to clear something up, this is from a protest in Canada, where abortion is legal and, by law, funded by each province. One province created a regulation that places restrictions on obtaining a funded abortion. The protest was not asking for more than is already supposed to be guaranteed by Canadian law. We have socialized medicine, healthcare IS everyone’s responsibility. Even if you smoke, even if you drink, do drugs, ride your bike without a helmet… even if your predicament is a direct result of a choice you made. This photo is not about the legality/morality of abortion, it’s about the province violating the Canada Health Act.
Right. Her ex boyfriend did awful awful things to many girls. Yes, it’s very difficult but it seems as though you’re trying to swipe it away. Could you imagine being with someone and had thousands of people all find out at the same time that this person is an abuser or a rapist?
I get you’re trying to stand up for those who have no voice. I get that and appreciate it. Truly. It feels though that you’re painting Carrie into a corner and making her a victim and maybe you’re not getting that.
Policing what she says and (she’s apologised by the way, I take it you saw that right?)being someone who actively exposed Alex (thank you) for what he is has painted her into a corner where she probably no longer feels like part of your community and you could push her back into another unhealthy relationship if she feels she has no one else to turn to.
Going back to the abuser because someone doesn’t feel supported is something that happens frequently. And just from this sentence you can see just how tangled this whole situation is.
I do hope you understand what I’m trying to get at here. She’s a human, if she misspoke, fine. You do see though how calling her out publicly will mean she is going to be terrorised, right? It won’t just be you getting shit on, it’s going to be a rain cloud of shit and everyone is going to get drenched. All of this is so avoidable.
Maybe you need to reflect and understand what your power is on social media. I know it can be used for good, but also understand how easily things turn to horrible messes very very quickly.
I just want this situation to reflect the humanity of everyone and maybe not their Youtube personalities?
