my brother yelled “HOLLA” at me and he was like “you’re supposed to say holla back” and I immediately replied “I ain’t no holla back girl” and it’s an hour later and I’m still laughing

Can we just talk about how this kid puts every pro choice argument I’ve ever heard to shame?


Here’s why

1. A fetus is not sentient or aware and doesn’t care about whether it gets aborted

2. A fetus ISN’T a child

3. The latin root doesn’t actually matter

4. Abortions aren’t performed on 5 month fetuses ‘all the time’ because the only time they’re done after 20 weeks (4.5 months) is when the fetus is dead, actively dying, suffers severe abnormalities or will kill the pregnant person.

5.THE FETUS’ RIGHTS DO NOT OVERRIDE THE PREGNANT PERSON’S RIGHTS. ANy right to life the fetus has DOES NOT override the pregnant persons right to bodily autonomy. Not now, not ever. So saying ‘is the mother’s right to choose really more important than the rights the fetus was never given?’??? YES. THE PREGNANT PERSON’S RIGHT TO DECIDE WHO MAY OR MAY NOT USE THEIR BODY IS ALWAYS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANYONE ELSES RIGHTS, WANTS OR DESIRES.

6. Consent to sex is not consent to pregnancy, so a person consenting to the act of having sex does not mean they should be denied abortions.

7. 54% of the people getting abortions DID use contraception and did NOT have unprotected sex

8. Abortion IS a form or responsibility (Woops, another thing she’s conveniently glossed over)

9. Actually ‘hard case’ is more common. 1.75% areto IMMEDIATELY save the pregnant persons life, 3-5% are rape and incest, and 12% are for mental or physical health reasons BEFORE they become immediately life threatening. That’s a LOT more than what she claims and I have sources to back it up, she doesn’t.

10. Those health problems are actually myths and have been debunked NUMEROUS times by non-biased sources. There is a WHOLE POST I did debunking a lot more than what she claims and what she claims! (And the number is way, WAY lower than ‘17% of abortion recipients.)The Cancer institute says she’s wrong about the breast cancer thing.

11. The mood disorders thing is also bullshit, no major prospective studies support that. In fact studies found the fair opposite. More people feel relief than anything else!

12. Alcohol and drug abuse more common? Interesting how I can ONLY find this on pro life sites and very interesting how I see 2x more likely, 5x more likely, 4x more likely… the inconsistancy reeks of bullshit.

13. God is not something you should be bringing into the discussion as belief is varied and *gasp* many religious beliefs actually teach a pro choice stand point.

14. Dr. Suess was pro choice, Horton Hears A Who was about the internment camps of the japanese and the Vietnam war and his widow not only donates to planned parenthood but regularily SUE’S people who use the quote she did for pro life rallies.

So no. She hasn’t ‘put every pro choice argument to shame’. She’s proven she’s a child with NO concept of what abortion is or why people get them. She’s committed a copyright infringement, she’s regurgitated all the pro life rhetoric every pro choicer has heard a hundred times and she’s proven she can’t be bothered to actually research her topic correctly (Did she use lifenews or something? Because she failed to mention any sources for information and got an enormous number of things very, very wrong).

Sorry but this kid hasn’t got a fucking clue what they’re talking about.

Klaus Leidorf (Germany) - Aerial Photography

German photographer Klaus Leidorf is an aerial archaeologist who likes to observe the human artifacts from a bird’s eye view. Perched at the window of his Cessna 172, he crisscrosses the skies above Germany, capturing images of farms, cities, industrial sites, and whatever else he discovers along his flight path. Since the late 1980s Leidorf has shot thousands upon thousands of aerial photographs and currently relies on the image-stabilization technology in his Canon EOS 5D Mark III which is able to capture the detail of single tennis ball as it flies across a court. Collectively the photos present a fascinating study of landscapes transformed by the hands of people - sometimes beautiful, sometimes frightening. (src. Colossal)

Kevin BeasleyUntitled (Jumped Man), 2014 (installation view, Whitney Biennial 2014, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, March 7–May 25, 2014). Collection of the artist. Photograph by Bill Orcutt 

"Installed in direct relationship to their architectural container, often on the floor directly in the viewers path, Beasley’s objects make use of - and continue to look like - biological matter, geological debris, and organic waste. Their near life size renders them anthropomorphic, yet these are disconcertingly truncated, compressed forms. They are at once nonhuman and human-like —- distinct from the viewer’s body, yet threatening and dissolving that boundry all the while.
