I have a tilted uterus and during my last pregnancy, I lost 6 liters of blood. I almost died. I can’t have this baby. Why don’t they understand that? ?

Weeping client talking to me today.  They tried to goad her companion into a fist fight so they could call the police and have him arrested, therefore she couldn’t have the procedure.

She was crying and screaming for them to leave her alone.  They wouldn’t, and her companion got angry.

I told her that I have no idea why they can’t understand it.  My guess is, that they don’t care about you or your partner, only the fetus that could kill you.

She was very upset, so I let her and her companion wait in my car.  She thanked me and said “I’m glad you are here.  He would have hit that guy if you all had not walked with us”.

She walked into the clinic tear free, but still with anti’s trailing behind her shouting.  The escort presence gave her space and a buffer from the harassment.

That is why I escort.  That is why I do it.

Portrayal of men in the media

Aw shit, it got better.

When people try to use early signs of “progress” (AKA media realizing women are horny assholes who’ll buy sex, too) as a way to undermine people who ask for progress. I MEAN, WE HAVE A WOMAN IN THE WHITE HO— oh wait.

I also find it funny since these same people are the ones who usually gloss over the objectifying of women, anyway. As in, they recognize that objectification has some negative qualities to it, but they aren’t concerned until it’s them being objectified. It’s like, yeah it’s a pretty shit thing that happens, that’s why it’s getting talked about often enough. Almost like, and stay with me here, those women are about 20+ years more tired of it than some dude who’s noticed a recent trend, and are trying to get it to stop, even. Like. Wow gosh. Who’d’ve thought that the primary targets of objectification for over the past 200+ years are pretty gosh dang sick of it, right?

Are you assuming I’m male? 

I’m just going to say that regardless of whether these are recent examples, regardless of whether this is a recent trend it is still the case that men are portrayed like this in the media.

The absolute worst argument you can use here is ‘well it’s been happening to women for longer’. But it’s still happening to men now right? Saying that it’s been happening to women for longer does not negate that fact.

That’s exactly the kind of argument that prompted me to make the post in the first place. I continually see it being claimed that only women are objectified when clearly that is untrue. 

Woah woah woah, for someone quick to ask about assumptions, you’re making a whole lot yourself here.

When we have been overwhelmed by trauma or PTSD (especially early in life), our nervous system develops a habit of hypervigilance. Our stress response keeps playing itself out, triggering a perpetual anxiety loop and causing our body and mind to respond to small stresses as if they were big threats. The reptilian brain (responsible for preserving life) and limbic brain (responsible for emotional reactions) do not distinguish between a real or potential threat, making it easy to get locked in chronic fear, worry and tension. Even when there is no danger, the reptilian brain keeps our muscles tight and braced in case there is need to take action. We may feel perpetually on alert, constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop. Or we may feel depressed, numb and sapped of energy. These are normal responses to living with a stressed nervous system. ? Abby Rose (via navelgazed)

You can find a recent kind of rudimentary page for As You Were here so yeah check it out! I’ll make a post when this issue comes out as well. But these are great and have lots of cool folks involved so you should check ‘em out and yep

I’ll admit when I first wrote this I was really worried it was too similar to a lot of comics I’ve found on tumblr, but then also it’s one of those things that happens to so many people so aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Black residents reject Trader Joe’s because it would attract too many white people

socialismartnature:

good.

===

The Portland African American Leadership Forum sent a scathing letter in December to city leaders, saying the plan would price residents out of the area and the group“remains opposed to any development in North/Northeast Portland that does not primarily benefit the black community.”

Trader Joe’s would increase displacement of low-income residents and “increase the desirability of the neighborhood,” for “non-oppressed populations,” PAALF wrote.

“[This decision] reflects the city’s overall track record of implementing policies that serve to uproot, displace and disempower our most vulnerable community members,” the letter said.

Racist School Teacher tells Students they can’t write about Malcolm X because he’s Violent

I bet they didn’t say that when we had to write papers on Christopher Columbus. Or when they’re studying European world history. Did you skip over colonization and everyone involved? Or just Malcolm X who was a reactionary to that colonization? How about Hitler? Oh ok. You’ll silenced the oppressed but freely speak of the oppressors.

the american school system is a fucking joke

absolute props to the amazing parents who took a stand for their history and for their children’s education

And this is why we have to take it upon ourselves to teach our children…
