There are other ways to say no… I just wanted to remind everyone of that.
Silence is not consent, crying is not consent, saying stop is not consent, certain body language is not consent ect ect.
It doesn’t take a genus to know whether or not someone wants to have sex with you.
I am sick of seeing these so called feminist pro-choice ads that skirt around the idea of having abortions. It seems more appropriate to apologize and re-assure that we will be good little girls, that we know our place, and that we only WANT the choice, never the actual need to access these clinics- the implication being that more than likely we will keep our babies because we agree on some level with the pro-life movement and that maybe sometime in the future we may, possibly, perhaps, covertly, silently, shamefully access them. As feminists it is IMPERATIVE that we start to use the term “ABORTION”.
Everyday good people have abortions! Everyday thousands of abortions occur across the world, many in back alleyways leading to severe trauma, health issue and even death to thousands of women; everyday abortions save women’s lives from abuse, violent spouses, domestic abuse, rape, honour killings, poverty, loss of bodily autonomy and more! Abortion is a human right! Abortion is NOT a dirty word; NOT a dirty secret; NOT a shameful act.
As feminists we need to start stating CLEARLY that as pro-choice advocates we are PRO-abortion! We need to start using that term so that we can challenge bias against, and stand in solidarity with, people who do have abortions or need to access an abortion clinic. I respect the rights of some people to choose not to have abortions for their own bodies and their own personal choices. But I will be damned if I don’t stand loudly and proudly with those who DO want, have had, need in the future the right to have access to an abortion clinic. Because that person could very well be you or me.
I am PRO-choice and PRO safe, easily accessible and affordable Abortion!
OPINIONS CAN BE RACIST
OPINIONS CAN BE SEXIST
OPINIONS CAN BE HOMOPHOBIC
stop using “it’s just my opinion” to justify your bigotry.
"If a woman doesn’t want to get pregnant then she shouldn’t have sex!"
Well then perhaps a man shouldn’t have sex if he doesn’t want to be a father… Or both parties could use contraceptive methods… Or we could stop assuming that that everyone on the planet is straight. So many possibilities.
"I shouldn’t have to pay for a woman’s birth control! If a woman gets pregnant from having lots of sex she should deal with the consequences herself!" shriek the straight men who would completely balk at the idea that if they don’t want to impregnate someone, they should abstain from having sex or else deal with the consequences themselves.
i love seeing girls close ranks when their fella is cheating, instead of defending him and attacking the other girls. like seriously. it warms my cold, cold heart so much.
i need the rest of this story, where did you put the body
I’ve always wanted to do this. I hope they all went out for ice cream later too.
i want an update on this
FORCED TO FLEE WITH HIS NAN
A cheating boyfriend got his comeuppance when he touched down in the UK following a holiday – and walked straight into his three girlfriends.
Charlie Fisher, 20, had barely set foot on English soil at Luton Airport when he heard someone shouting ‘liar, liar’ – and saw the three girls he had been seeing being each other’s backs marching towards him.
Becky Connery, 17, said she planned the (not so) welcome party after finding out her love rat boyfriend had been texting a girl behind her back.
‘He came out and froze,’ she told The Sun.

‘We started calling him a cheat and a liar really loudly. He didn’t have anything to say.’
After seeing the message, Becky got in touch with the 20-year-old girl – who does not want to be identified – and together, the pair found a third girl through Facebook, Lizzie Leeland-Cunningham.
‘I just wanted to see his face when all three of us were in the same place,’ Lizzie, 19, told The Sun.
Becky later said that after confronting her cheating ex, he ‘ran to his nana’.
Charlie, from Hertfordshire, would invent friends and lie about family commitments in order to juggle the three girls, according to reports.
