I don’t know who keeps spreading this lie, but I don’t care if you’re pro-choice or pro-life—you NEED TO KNOW that pregnancy ABSOLUTELY can be a life threat to the pregnant person, and abortion ABSOLUTELY can save that pregnant person’s life.
I, myself, had to have my PLANNED AND WANTED pregnancy terminated in order to save my life. I had THREE opinions from three different OBGYN’s who DID NOT PROVIDE ABORTION SERVICES (i.e.—they would not profit from an abortion, and would in fact lose money from me/my insurance if I terminated), and they all said the baby and I would absolutely not survive the pregnancy.
In the sobering words of the last doctor I saw: “I would count it a literal miracle if you somehow survived past 20 weeks. You and your child are assured death if you proceed with this pregnancy. By terminating, you have a much better chance of at least saving your own life.”
I was so sick I was confined to my bed, forced to stop working for over a month, had lost 15 pounds by the sixth week, could not walk by myself, use the bathroom by myself, and would pass out if I tried to stand up. After I had my abortion, I almost IMMEDIATELY recovered, was able to live independently, and returned to work.
Listen, I don’t care what you personally believe—you’re entitled to your own opinions. But this is not up for discussion. This is not an opinion. This is fact: pregnancy absolutely can, has, and will pose a life-threat to many pregnant people whose lives can be saved through abortion.
Please stop spreading downright lies about medical facts.

Erm. Yes, pregnancy can be life-threatening.Let’s take ectopic pregnancy as an example (this is when the zygote implants anywhere other than the uterus - in the fallopian tubes, outside the uterus, etc)(These are rather unpleasant, but they’re illustrations, not real images. Tw blood)

Hey there, Tumblr. I’m starting a new teaching job frighteningly soon and I want need it to go better than my last one. The last one gave me panic attacks and made me give up on students who deserved better, so now I’m asking for help.

What did a teacher do in your past that worked for you?

Hey, I’m a high school English teacher if you have any questions for teachers! I’ve taught every grade except seniors. :)

a muggleborn student gets called a mudblood, so they lick their hand and wipe it on the pureblood’s face, singing “got mud on your face, you big disgrace, somebody better put you back into your place”

all the muggleborns in the vicinity immediately go *STOMP STOMP CLAP* repeatedly gettting closer and closer to the pureblood

and the pureblood’s like “holy shit is this some muggle damning ritual or something AM I GOING TO HELL I’M SORRY”

IDK if you know much about BDSM or read the 50 Shades of Gray book (if you don't rly want to answer this, maybe you could point me to someone who's more knowledgable) but do you think the ppossible abuse aspect in it has been srsly overblown?

pervocracy:

I know an awful lot about BDSM (been doing it in real life about seven years now) and an awful lot about 50 Shades, and:

No, it’s srsly underblown.  I mean, this is a story about a guy who repeatedly hits a girl who doesn’t want him to and doesn’t enjoy it.  That’s as clear-cut as you can get without the author actually writing out the words “He abused me.  With real abuse. I literally 100% mean that he abused me.”

Using the word “BDSM” doesn’t change that.  Having a “consent contract” doesn’t change that, not when he hits Ana tons when she hasn’t signed or really even had input on it.  The only thing that could make Christian hitting Ana okay in BDSM terms is if before each time, she said (or communicated to the effect of) “Please hit me, I would like that,” and she says no such damn thing.

(“The sub isn’t supposed to like it” is an incredibly dangerous line of argument.  You might as well punch a stranger on the street and say “you weren’t supposed to like it.”)

Also, he stalks her, yells and glares at her constantly, and at one point breaks into her apartment and ties her to the bed, and this is verbatim from the book:

“No,” I protest, trying to kick him off. He stops. “If you struggle, I’ll tie your feet too. If you make a noise, Anastasia, I will gag you.”

This is some serial killer shit.

(And then she agrees to sex, sure, but at that point she’s already tied down and he’s already ignored “no.”  What do you figure he’d do if she didn’t agree to sex, apologize and go home?  Her saying “yes” at that point is consent the way giving a mugger your wallet is a gift.)

There are honestly points in this book where I have to remind myself that because it’s being marketed as a romance, Christian will not actually attempt to kill Ana.
