Guess what. I'm pro-life and I consider myself to be a feminist. Contrary to popular belief, these are not contradictory.

How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you’ll trap people in abusive relationships?

How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing some people will never be able to escape their abusers?

How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you’ll bring violence onto some people from family, friends, or partners because they got pregnant?

How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing people will die that would otherwise have survived their pregnancy had they been able to get an abortion?

How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you’re potentially causing more trauma to rape victims? (Rape exceptions are ineffective shit so don’t even start.)

How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you’ll cause people to lose their jobs from pregnancy related causes?

How can you consider yourself a feminist knowing you will harm some trans and non-binary individuals who can get pregnant?

Pro-life feminism is an oxymoron.

I’ve had people claim I’m choosing career/money/travel “instead” of kids way too much. It’s not that I’m choosing those things instead of having kids, it’s that I do not want the children *themselves*. Then they’ll say stuff like “you can still travel with children!” Yes, I know, I travelled with my parents growing up. “You can be a mom and still have a career!” Yes, I know, my mom, my aunts, and my parents’ friends (also parents) have careers. But those aren’t the issues here. No matter how much or little I travelled, I still would not want children. Even if I had no career to speak of, even if I inherited a huge amount of money or married rich and never had to work a day in my life, I would simply not want children. This is the point they keep missing, because they can’t conceptualize not wanting children. In their minds, I’m “sacrificing” having kids for something I consider better. They do not understand that for me, it’s no sacrifice at all. It would be like “sacrificing” not cutting my foot off.

Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.

Part 4.

Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.

,

Do not forget about Ferguson. Stay woke.

poldberg:

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

As a male writer, do you feel your work distracts from your traditional role of hunting and killing wild animals?
