People always ask me: “are you the same as Blanche Devereaux?”, and I always say: “please, just look at the facts”

like it’s not “whoops I’m PREGNANT AGAIN tee hee time for an abortion!!”
nobody fuckin does that. nobody
it’s more along the lines of
do you want an abortion or do you want to die
do you want an abortion or do you want to watch your baby die after a week
do you want an abortion or do you want your life to fall apart around you because of a child you are either unable or unfit to support
do you want to give up a fetus or a living, breathing baby
This kind of bothers me. Because I find this to be kind of an unhelpful narrative. Like it’s only acceptable to get an abortion if your life would be ruined by not having one. That takes the choice out of pro-choice, doesn’t it?
It should be acceptable to get an abortion if it’s the right choice for you. That’s it. You’re allowed to tee hee if you want to (although, it’s unlikely.)
Unnecessary “fillers” in our speech. I’d rather have “like” than up-talking, though (if we had to choose one, that is). Ewwww, up-talking. Then again, a combination of the two would render me homicidal maniac.
Like, did you ever notice? That, like, the speech patterns people, like, think are stupid? Are, like, commonly associated with, like, women?
And, like, there’s this thing? Where, like, women aren’t supposed to be, like, assertive? So they, like, qualify their speech? Because, like, we’re not supposed to, like, stand by our opinions?
1) humiliate women so they don’t feel qualified to speak authoritatively about anything
2) humiliate women for speaking in such a way that reflects how you treat her
3) laugh, you are superior because you don’t use words like “like.” It isn’t as if being a huge stupid asshole has ever made you worse than a woman who speaks with verbal tics.
The nail. It is hit on the head.
THEY DIDN’T EVEN FUCKING SPELL ACADEMY RIGHT
