Sometimes when you open up to people, you let the bad in with the good.
From the very beginning you are being told to compare yourself with others. This is the greatest disease. It is like a cancer that goes on destroying your very soul because each individual is unique, and comparison is not possible.
Not when you are laying around the house, not when you go to the grocery store, not when you sit in a classroom, not when you go to the gym. You are never obligated to get dressed up just so you are pretty for others.
Pretty is not the rent you pay to exist in the world as a woman.
That last line. Wow.
In the post-World War II era, the Klan experienced a huge resurgence. Its membership was skyrocketing, and its political influence was increasing, so Kennedy went undercover to infiltrate the group. By regularly attending meetings, he became privy to the organization’s secrets. But when he took the information to local authorities, they had little interest in using it. The Klan had become so powerful and intimidating that police were hesitant to build a case against them.
Struggling to make use of his findings, Kennedy approached the writers of the Superman radio serial. It was perfect timing. With the war over and the Nazis no longer a threat, the producers were looking for a new villain for Superman to fight. The KKK was a great fit for the role.
In a 16-episode series titled “Clan of the Fiery Cross,” the writers pitted the Man of Steel against the men in white hoods. As the storyline progressed, the shows exposed many of the KKK’s most guarded secrets. By revealing everything from code words to rituals, the program completely stripped the Klan of its mystique. Within two weeks of the broadcast, KKK recruitment was down to zero. And by 1948, people were showing up to Klan rallies just to mock them.

Ooh look, someone made me a shopping list :).
when your first response to seeing a photograph of any female is to immediately tell her “UR HAWT: or “smokin’” or “Dayum, You FIne”, or to suddenly try to steer what had been a conversation about ANYTHING ELSE towards actively hitting on her, asking her out/into a more private conversation, or onto the subject of her appearance…
It comes across EXACTLY like you are catcalling her on the street.
IF you find the girl attractive, get to know who she is before you declare that she give you a hard-on.
I point this out to men SPECIFICALLY because that’s who does it to *me*, and who I have observed doing it to other women on the internet time and again. I have plenty of men in my life (several of whom may be reading this) who are completely capable of NOT doing this EVER. Which is proof that this is not hardwired into your genes. Knock it off.
Only pro-lifers would want to be considered “hijackers.” (Terrorists, much?)
So, I thought this wasn’t until September 1st, with live-tweeting during PBS’s airing of After Tiller. Unless pro-lifers want to simply trash the hashtags with their garbage, before that date.
For those of you who don’t know, Dr. Tiller was a doctor who openly performed late-term abortions. He was assassinated thanks to pro-life terrorists and a vigilante. (Operation Rescue had ties to Dr. Tiller’s assassin, the constant stigma against abortion reaffirmed the the assassin’s violent intentions.)
After Tiller is a 2013 documentary that concerns the only four doctors who still perform late-term abortions in the U.S after Dr. Tiller’s assassination.
This kind of shit, this attempt to silence abortion support, is why abortion stigma exists. This mob-like attack on abortion scares people away from the subject and from abortion as a choice. They are scaring people away from freedom of choice.
So, what can we, as pro-choice advocates, do? Well, during pro-life “hijacking,” make sure you don’t let them have the whole tag! Post, counterpost, spam up Twitter with your support (you can connect your tumblr to your twitter, fyi.) Why? Even if there’s pro-life garbage in our tags, enough posts make the tag trend. If it trends, people see. Even if there’s pro-life garbage in the tag, seeing pro-choice support and abortion support is massively important!
