Anonymous asked: Pro life or pro choice?
That’s a tricky one for me to answer. I am pro choice to a certain point, but when it comes to late term abortions (when there is an abortion in the last trimester) I am pro-life. I had to write a research paper on abortion once, and I had to find out how exactly doctors perform abortions once the baby is a physical human body, and in my opinion, the choice should be up to the person up until the third trimester or pregnancy.
you do realize that the majority of late term abortions are performed to save the mother’s life, right? and without them, women would be forced to birth stillbirth babies that have a high possibility of fucking killing them in the process. -Alyssa
Exactly. Less than 1% of all abortions are done after 20 weeks. Less than 1%. Let that sink in. Of these, absolutely none of them are women waking up and going “Darn, I don’t fit into that dress for my event tonight. Oh well, I’ll schedule an abortion between my hair and nails today.” These women who are having an abortion after 20 weeks are having one for a reason. Hydrocephalus, or water in the brain, which is fatal and will result in a still born birth. Trisonomy 18, also fatal, and once it is birn, the child will suffer endless, excruciating pain ubtil they die, within weeks. Mermaid syndrome, in which there is no bladder or kidney or anus or urethra. Also fatal, within hours of being born. Missing or deformed organs, genetic disorders which, even if they aren’t fatal, will result in a lifetime of pain.
Who the hell are you to decide that your beliefs and your morals are enough to force these women to carry a stillborn and deliver it; or to force a woman to give birth to a child who will know nothing but pain? That isn’t love or caring, that’s sadistic. Don’t be like Greg Abbot (currently running for governor of my fair state of TX and who, if he wins, will enact laws banning abortions altogether, no matter if it means the women will die), who says that a stillbirth, or a fatal pregnancy is a “woman’s issue”. Don’t be a sadistic prick who cares nothing for these women, and thinks they should conform to you. Have some compassion, and maybe do a google search before you start spouting off.
In porn, women of color are generally relegated to gonzo, a genre that has little glamour, security, or chic status. Here women have few fan club Web sites, do not make it to pop culture, and have to endure body-punishing sex. But while the sex acts are typical gonzo, the way the written text frames the sex is unique as it racializes the bodies and sexual behavior of the performer. In all-white porn, no one ever refers to the man’s penis as “a white cock” or the woman’s vagina as “white pussy,” but introduce a person of color, and suddenly all players have a racialized sexuality, where the race of the performer(s) is described in ways that make women a little “sluttier” and the men more hypermasculinized.
It is this harnessing of gender to race that makes women of color a particularly useful group to exploit in gonzo porn, since gonzo porn works only to the degree that the women in it are debased and dehumanized. As a woman of color, the porn performer embodies two subordinate categories, such as Asian fuckbucket, black ho, or Latina slut. All past and present racist stereotypes are dredged up and thrown in her face while she is being orally, anally, and vaginally penetrated by any number of men. When men (irrespective of race) ejaculate on her face and body, they often make reference to her skin color, and her debased status as a woman is seamlessly melded with, and reinforced by, her supposed debased status as a person of color. In the process, her race and gender become inseparable and her body carries the status of dual subordination. — Gail Dines, Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality (via wretchedoftheearth)
