thereisafish: You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of thermodynamics; that no energy gets created in the universe, and none is destroyed. You want your mother to know that...

Why Susan G. Komen defunded Planned Parenthood →
thedailyhumanism: The Associated Press reports that Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the nation’s leading breast-cancer charity, will cut off its funding to Planned Parenthood affiliates, where the foundation has traditionally paid for preventive screening services. The pro-life movement is not actually pro-life. Planned Parenthood will be losing an estimated $700,000+ a year to help fund breast...

You know, because it’s not like Planned Parenthood does ANYTHING at all that has to do with cancer treatment. Nope.
Obama plays his Catholic allies for fools →
pointofintersection: Well, yea–I have to say, given Pres. Obama’s record on this issue as an Illinois senator and his partisan reaction in pushing through legislation, I don’t see how anyone could have thought he would do anything differently. From Michael Gerson at the Washington Post: In politics, the timing is often the message. On Jan. 20 — three days before the annual March for Life —...

uncutting: dancing-painted-bears: Wow, that’s actually a very interesting thing to think about. Thanks for letting me know! But does it hurt a lot to do it? Nope, not at all. Whether you restore by hand or with a device, you tug just to the point of feeling a mild tension. If it hurts, you’re doing it too strongly. Well that was something that I did not know, thanks for answering!
Susan Komen Backs out of Planned Parenthood →
lostlambs: Some great news - Susan G Komen Foundation - stops Money to Planned Parenthood. I hear lots of little baby hands applauding this move. Infamous Johnson County Kansas Planned Parenthood Photo I took while protesting Yeah well, it’s not like Planned Parenthood does anything good anyways!
uncutting: dancing-painted-bears: I heard from some girls today that apparently some guys that have been circumcised will stretch the skin down there to make a fake foreskin. Do guys really do that? Yep! I’m one of them. Though I wouldn’t consider a restored foreskin “fake”- the new skin is grown from the remnants of the old foreskin, so it has the same appearance and most of the same...

There is just so much slut shaming that I can’t handle it.
self respect > attention whore
If you had any self respect you wouldn’t go around calling people attention whores just because they are comfortable in their bodies and have self confidence.
apersonaltouch: I find it quite offensive when I log into my Facebook page and see that almost all of my guys friends have “Liked” some random girls picture of her showing her a**. I think it’s disgusting and unattractive. Granted, it’s not the mens fault. It’s the girls fault for putting such a provocative picture on the internet for everyone else to see. With some of the social sites people...

“We’re kind of reeling,” said Patrick Hurd, who is CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Virginia — recipient of a 2010 grant from Komen — and whose wife, Betsi, is a veteran of several Komen fundraising races and is currently battling breast cancer. “It sounds almost trite, going through this with Betsi, but cancer doesn’t care if you’re pro-choice, anti-choice, progressive, conservative,”...

maps4aid: Police said the accused identified as Tulu Behera (23), owner of a fast food centre had allegedly kidnapped a 15-year-old girl from a different caste. He had kept her in his house and sexually exploitated her promising to marry her. The girl, however, escaped and returned home in Khallikote. Though the incident happened 3 years ago, the matter came to light when the girl lodged an FIR...

seesawarsaw: someone please think of a reply to this, because i literally cannot handle this right now. 1) Pro-choice is not pro-abortion. And before you tell me ‘aren’t you glad your mother or pro-life?’ No I’m actually not glad because that infers the possibility that I am an unwanted mistake whereas if she were pro-choice I know she actually wanted me and that I am not a mistake, like...

missatralissa: All I have to say is, boo fucking hoo. They are perfectly fine to jump into the government when it comes to banning abortion, but if the government says: “Hey give your employees the option to take birth control” they freak the fuck out and want separation of church and state. You can’t demand to have a voice in the government when it comes to the lives of OTHERS and then get...

Rant about Rape Culture
feminist77: *Trigger warning* Only through active miseducation can we resist rape culture. So I’m wondering, how many men seek out knowledge of gender issues/feminism? It’s a nearly impossible thing to measure, as is the number of men who have committed unwanted sexual acts. But here’s the thing: 1 in 4 women are survivors of sexual assault. Virtually every woman has been the recipient of...
