"It’s like being presented with a sirloin steak and being told you can’t eat it."
I presented my two dogs with an actual sirloin steak, then told them no.
Woofles didn’t even approach it when I set it down, as I hadn’t told him it was okay to do so.
Quinn approached it, completely ready to take it from the plate (as her manners are not yet as good as Woofles’ manners), was told no, and immediately backed off.
When Woofles heard the no, he turned away as well because he knew that steak was not for him to eat.
Notice how they didn’t ‘argue’, didn’t take it anyway, didn’t get aggressive, didn’t beg, or didn’t try to somehow persuade me that they should be able to have it.
They were told no, they backed off.
So, essentially, if you use that analogy to excuse rape, you’re saying you have less self control and fewer basic social manners than my two dogs.
That also probably means you should be neutered and kept on a leash.

"Which probably means you should be neutered and kept on a leash."
Damn. That’s a fucking comeback right there.

Oscar nominees Best Animated Feature 2014
Earlier today this article was brought to my attention, in which it becomes clear that some of the Academy voters have little to no respect for the animation industry. They openly admit not having watched the nominated films and/or claiming that animated films are for kids, so they didn’t vote. Even the ones shown in the article that did vote barely motivated their choice.
I find this extremely disrespectful of the animators who poured their heart and soul into making these movies, only to have their work be pushed aside without a second glance by the judges of one of the most prominent and well known film awards out there. As an aspiring animator, I am deeply insulted.
Please note that in this post I am expressing no opinion on whether Frozen should have won or not. I think it’s a wonderful film, just as all the other nominees. I am simply saying that we deserve better.
What they did is disrespectful to the creators of every single one of these films, even Frozen. By barely motivating their choice, they make it look like they voted for Frozen simply because of Disney’s status in the industry. Because it’s Disney, and it made a lot of money, so it had to be at least somewhat good. To me it seems like some of the voters just defaulted to voting for the Disney film, and nobody likes to win by default.
Don’t get me wrong, I too have been guilty of loving Disney simply because it’s Disney, but there is so much more beautiful animation out there and it deserves to be taken into consideration. And if Frozen won, it should have won because the majority of the voters thought it was the best film, not because part of the voters was too lazy to even watch the nominated films.

Unskilled labor doesn’t exist.
Labor which requires skills that are devalued does.
I’m sorry, but if you smoke (or drink) while you’re pregnant and you know that you’re pregnant, I’m just not going to think of you as a worthwhile human being.
(This opinion is based from when I was walking out of work one evening and heard a couple talking. The guy asked the woman, who was smoking, ‘Aren’t you pregnant?’ and her response was ‘Only a couple of months’)
BODILY AUTONOMY! BODILY AUTONOMY! BODILY AUTONOMY!
If you use “bodily autonomy” as a defense of abortion, then you should have no problem with someone drinking and smoking while pregnant.
NO. That is completely different. There is a difference between not having a child, and having a child that will be disabled because of recklessness during a pregnancy.
What’s the difference between aborting a child (killing it), or injuring a child?
A fetus is not a child, it’s a fetus.
Two problems with that response:
1) You said earlier, and I quote, “There is a difference between not having a CHILD, and having a child that will be disabled…”. You called it a child earlier, and now you’re saying it’s not a child, it’s a fetus? You misspoke? How convenient.
2) According the dictionary, it is both child and fetus. But more importantly, what kind of fetus do you think it is? A lion fetus? A dog fetus? Tough question, I know.
Now you may have never heard the bodily autonomy argument before. But kept to its logical outcome, it is unreasonable for you to tell someone else what they can and can’t do with their own body, right? So please explain to me the logical pathway between telling a pregnant woman she shouldn’t drink alcohol, and telling a pregnant woman it’s okay to kill her baby? Why is one okay to advocate for and one isn’t? Where is the consistency? Or do you just refuse to change your mind on the whole “bodily autonomy” argument out of stubbornness and ideology?
If you’re planning to have/keep the child, and you know you’re pregnant, PLEASE don’t smoke or drink. Yes bodily autonomy is a thing and I can’t tell you what to do but come on. This is your future child we’re talking about. When you’re actually planning to keep the child and you do things to harm it’s growth and development, that is irresponsible. If you don’t want to keep it…That’s a different situation but you should probably think about what you’re going to do. If you’re not able to quit smoking or drinking for the sake of your child’s healthy development, are you really ready to be a parent? I can’t tell you not to smoke or drink, and I can’t even tell you to have an abortion because you’re irresponsible because that’s just silly of me…But you should seriously consider at least one of those things. That’s just my opinion.
Bodily autonomy is a great argument for pro-choice, but that does not mean it is always a positive thing. If you die and your organs could save multiple lives but you chose while you were alive not to consent to donating, you are exercising bodily autonomy and not saving lives you could have saved. If you choose to maintain a pregnancy and do things that are proven to DAMAGE a fetus throughout development and can cause very bad birth defects, that’s awful. Yes you can legally do whatever you want to/with your body, but that does not mean you should. It does not morally justify any choice. You can legally self-harm, that does not mean you should. You can legally drink large amounts of alcohol, that does not mean you should. There’s this Stand Your Ground law here in Florida where if, say, a teenager is playing catch and the ball goes onto your property and the kid runs onto it to get his ball but you aren’t sure if he’s running towards you to hurt you or what, you can legally shoot and kill that kid, not knowing their intentions for sure. You can, but that doesn’t make it right. While that law is great for if you’re being robbed and need to harm the person so you are not harmed, it is not always a positive thing. So yes, you can control your own body, but doing those reckless things while pregnant will likely affect that child once it is born. You may screw up that child because of your actions.
did anyone realize that california laws went into effect today that allows trans* youth to pick which bathroom and sports team they feel comfortable with in school
i think that’s the bee’s knees
i just realized tater tots is short for potato toddlers and i don’t know how i feel about that
it ok to not be ready
Please spread this shit like wildfire. People go on and sit through the whole experience and they’re uncomfortable because they just want to please their partner and they don’t tell them that they want to stop because they are not ready. It’s okay not to be ready.
