Damn it’s all shiny! It may be ancient, but I’d bet it still works better than our janky newer range-top. Ugh, what I would do to have a glass-top stove again. Gas stoves scare me. Lol
the burners need a little assistance, but it really does work efficiently. I love the retro green. Ive never had a glass top stove. but I have heard of such a thing. and it sounds absolutely beautiful.
A post is going around for a girl who’s asking the tumblr community to help her out in raising money to have an abortion because she’s a teenager with no money and her abusive father will hurt her and her boyfriend if he finds out. I think she’s up to somewhere around $300. the hateful messages people are sending her are silly, but isn’t it just so easy to throw money at a problem? ahh, the democratic way.
people. this girl has an abusive father. why isn’t that the bigger issue. also, liberal logic says that this girl should have been aborted. she has a shitty parent. its argued that people who arent going to be good parents should be able to get abortions for that reason. according to them, she was better off dead. yes, in due time she will no longer be pregnant. but at what point will she be free of abuse, free of the hindrance of having to abort her own offspring due to poverty, and free to conquer life as it is and not as everyone is telling her it should be?
posts about parenting just not being people's "thing"
posts about how changing babies’ diapers, bathing, feeding, and raising children is just not “people’s thing" are driving me nuts. 4 years ago, before I became pregnant. I was a high school senior. I rode my bike everywhere, painted, and besides close friends, I had the adolescent luxury of making friends through superficial common interests like fashion, movies, music;the smiths, coldplay, system of a down, bjork, the police, the beatles, bowie, interpol, blah, blah BLAH. I never liked "parenting" on my facebook page. It wasn’t my thing. parenting is not a thing. not everyone who strives to be a parent just loves taking care of children unconditionally. its not, like, totally, their fav thing and follow child rearing blogs like a fad. children are not a hobby. they’re not something to be into. they’re people. stop seeing them as some separate entity that you can choose to be into or not into. Im not into pets. its just not a responsibility Im interested in taking on. children are not that. modern American society is never selfless. people let themselves be the product of consumerism and ego. they rant about how America is disgusting and government doesn’t care about the people. but if children aren’t your thing then people arent your thing. so your social justice blogs about equality are empty fluff. striving to be a good parent is relatable to EVERYONE. because striving to be a good parent equates to striving to be a generally good PERSON.
Pro-Lifers don’t equate abortion to slavery. That’s just how Pro-Choicers twist our words. They think we’re saying a women getting abortion is the same thing as a slave getting whipped, being starved and separated from his family.
This is what we are saying (notice the bold):
The ATTITUDE towards slaves back then is the SAME ATTITUDE people have towards an unborn human.
Then: Slaves were not considered humans.
Now: Unborn humans are not considered human.
Once you eliminate the humanity of a human, its easy to mistreat them or kill them off like an animal, an insect or anything less significant. No one is making the argument that abortion is slavery, we’re making the argument that a prenatal human is viewed the same way a slave was: not human.
something I didnt think I needed to articulate so specifically, but when it comes to the opposing side, you can’t leave any wiggle room because they’ll get lost in what you’re saying.
becoming a parent is not a hobby. it is not an accessory to your life. and for many, including myself, it may not have been planned or initially welcomed. it is an obligation. not a legal one, not a religious one, a natural one.for two seconds, set aside the “rights” and…
Yeah this makes no sense… Just because you’re using big words like “rhetoric” doesn’t mean you have made any valid point. The only REAL point you made was that being a parent is an obligation…other than that…you’re just rambling a bunch of bullshit, pretending to be profound. Go read up on your facts buddy.
One thing I’ve never enjoyed while growing up on the south side of chicago in a community that doesn’t value education and pride in knowledge (which I’ve come to realize is an issue more widespread than the south side of Chicago)… is when you’re trying to say something you really want to say, but every other sentence Im stopped so people can go, “ah look at this girl. usin big words n shit.” if you think rhetoric is a big word and every person with an idea is so arrogant to think their measly tumblr post is “profound” then your standards and the people you surround yourself with need to be turned up just a notch.
