Shakespearean insults, with cats.

7 more here.

I did not realize how very perfect cats were at delivering Shakespeare’s insults until now.

A long time ago I learned not to explain things to people. It misleads them into thinking they’re entitled to know everything I do.

OMG THE BISON THOUGH HIS LITTLE TAIL WAGGING AS HE MUSHES HIS FACE IN

If a girl a raped and impregnated which is only one of a billion scenarios in the world would you still say that she should keep it even if she says she cannot afford to raise a child and doesn't want to raise one because of her situation?

liberals-are-so-strange:

You can avoid being raped by not putting yourself in a bad and untrustworthy situation. And there’s always the option of putting the child up for adoption. I’m not one to believe in receiving “help” from the Government but there are so many programs that are offered to help raise children such as Wic, also here in Arizona there’s AHCCCS (free health insurance), then there’s Section 8 (free housing), and so many other programs so there is no reason anyone should have the excuse of saying they cannot financially support having a child. 

Ah yes. That old chestnut of an argument:

'You put yourself in that situation, therefore you must deal with the consequences'

I mean, shit, there are so many things wrong with that mindset, but, in the context of abortion, what you’re essentially saying is:
'You don't want this baby, but you had sex (which was your goddamn fault), and therefore this baby? this one right here inside you? this unwanted thing? yea we're gonna punish you by making you carry it to term'

I mean. Literally this baby has become a punishment.

This is the fucked up peverse kind of thinking that makes me realise I don’t think I could ever be on the same goddamn ontological plane as a pro-lifer.

And oh holy shit ‘you can avoid being raped by not putting yourself in a bad and untrustworthy situation’… I struggle to even know where to begin.

Like. You are aware that the majority of rape is carried out by people known to the victim right? As in. Many victims are raped in what they thought were safe environments, by people who they trusted/loved. I mean shit, it’s only relatively recently that it’s been made illegal for someone to rape their spouse (and in many places, it’s still legal).

Even if rape was carried out in the back of a dark alley by someone the victim didn’t know. And even if the victim was drunk, wearing revealing clothing or no clothing at all, you are saying that foetus will now be used as a punishment against that victim. ‘What a stupid stupid person, for being alone in that dark alley, wearing those clothes, opening yourself up to rape. Now you’ll not only be punished by having been raped, we’re also going to punish you by making you bring an unwanted human into the world because you deserve it’

Fuck me I feel fucking sick.

Goddamn it, this shouldn’t even be a conversation. The person doesn’t have to have been raped. If the person wants an abortion that is fucking enough. They have nothing else to prove.

We do not require mothers donate any part of their body to their born children, even if it is necessary to keep that child alive.  I see no reason why unborn children should be any different.  A woman’s body is her own and free, safe, legal abortion on demand is part of that.

Leaves from the vine
Falling so slow
Like fragile tiny shells
Drifting in the foam
Little soldier boy
Come marching home
Brave soldier boy
Comes marching home

Those leaves did grow
From branches overgrown
Drifting slowly down
Resting on the loam
Little soldier boy
Taken from home
Forced to fight a war
That’s not his own

Leaves from the vine
Falling so slow
Like fragile tiny shells
Drifting in the foam
Little soldier boy says 
"Carry me home"
Sleeping soldier boy
Is carried home
