This is a forum for anything and everything related to feminism.
during the witch burning times, midwives were targeted because they were healers and they eased the pain of childbirth which was meant to be woman’s punishment for eating the apple in the garden of eden.
birth control and abortion were considered sinful for the same reason.

what a sad reflection on our society.
False rape accusations are an anomaly.
True rape accusations are a norm.
You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.

Here’s the thing about being pro choice that people don’t get…
You don’t have to morally agree with abortion to be pro choice. That’s why it’s not called pro abortion. It’s an understanding that you can’t make that choice for someone else and they have full control over that not you. It’s pro I’m not the boss of everyone else.
This is important.
Makeup isn’t for women.

Not everything works around your heterosexual framework and agenda. People shouldn’t have to understand queerness within a heterosexual mindset. “Oh, so who’s the man in the relationship?” being a prime example. Heterosexuality is equated with “normality.” “Normal” is therefore an exclusionary and toxic word. Stop stomping all over queer people with your weird sense of superiority because you’re straight.
