Advice To My Past Self From The Tardis

Advice to My Past Self From The Tardis

femfreq:

In this episode we explore the Women as Background Decoration trope which is the subset of largely insignificant non-playable female characters whose sexuality or victimhood is exploited as a way to infuse edgy, gritty or racy flavoring into game worlds. These sexually objectified female bodies are designed to function as environmental texture while titillating presumed straight male players. Sometimes they’re created to be glorified furniture but they are frequently programmed as minimally interactive sex objects to be used and abused.

Don’t dare tell me that in modern days we don’t need feminism.

These stories and facts don’t lie.

Above all remember, dear, that you have a great opportunity. You are in one of the world’s best schools, in one of the world’s greatest modern empires. Millions of boys and girls all over this world would give almost anything they possess to be where you are. You are there by no desert or merit of yours, but only by lucky chance.

Deserve it, then. Study, do your work. Be honest, frank and fearless and get some grasp of the real values of life. You will meet, of course, curious little annoyances. People will wonder at your dear brown and the sweet crinkley hair. But that simply is of no importance and will soon be forgotten. Remember that most folk laugh at anything unusual, whether it is beautiful, fine or not. You, however, must not laugh at yourself. You must know that brown is as pretty as white or prettier and crinkley hair as straight even though it is harder to comb. The main thing is the YOU beneath the clothes and skin—the ability to do, the will to conquer, the determination to understand and know this great, wonderful, curious world. Don’t shrink from new experiences and custom. Take the cold bath bravely. Enter into the spirit of your big bed-room. Enjoy what is and not pine for what is not. Read some good, heavy, serious books just for discipline: Take yourself in hand and master yourself. Make yourself do unpleasant things, so as to gain the upper hand of your soul.

Above all remember: your father loves you and believes in you and expects you to be a wonderful woman.

Mila Kunis Against Men Saying “We Are Pregnant” - Video

What the fuck is this bullshit and why was it recommended for me?

It’s not like men are involved in the creation of the baby or anything.

I mean shit, I understand that pregnancy is an extremely strenuous thing on the woman, but that doesn’t mean that a dude can’t be proud of the fact that he’s going to be a father.

Hmm. Weird how someone would want to be considered a part of the pregnancy…
There goes all of my respect for Mila Kunis.

My goodness, women like this have some fucking nerve. Good luck Ashton.

Please stop.

Pregnancy is a very dangerous time for cis-women. Until cis-men are capable of nine months of pain without the ability to take painkillers, followed by hours of one of the most painful experiences a human can undergo, I agree with Mila Kunis. It is your child. Not your pregnancy. You don’t get a fucking medal for sticking your dick inside someone and impregnating them, you get a child. So no, you don’t need a fucking spotlight highlighting your months of work and pain and the fact that you can potentially die trying to bring life into the world when you have not undergone any of the physical effort.

Things you can expect during pregnancy: Anemia, urinary tract infections, constipation, mental health conditions including intense depression, hyperemesis gravidarm (basically when persistent vomiting is more than just morning sickness and requires hospitalization). Not to mention there are dozens of infections that can cause serious problems. (x) (x)

Oh and the fact that 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriages which obviously requires hospitalization for the pregnant woman and causes a lot of emotional trauma.

Or that you can’t consume alcohol, most types of fish, you can’t expose yourself to hot water (or any heat, really), or get an x-ray. You cannot eat lunch meats, raw sprouts (radishes, alfalfa, etc.), soft cheeses, anything unpasteurized is out, as are foods with raw or undercooked eggs. And caffeine can lead to miscarriages, so say goodbye to coffee, teas, and chocolate. (x) (x) (x)

About 2 million pregnancy losses occur annually in the U.S.; 6 million babies are born. 25% of pregnancies are lost.

14.5% of pregnant women will experience at least one pregnancy complication.

11% of women are diagnosed with post partum depression.

(x)

800 women die because of pregnancy-related problems in the U.S. annually. (x)

Labor can last for 36 hours or more. You’re in a room full of strangers, who are all seeing your vagina, your blood, your shit, your piss, and your agony. It’s common for tearing to occur during the delivery (x) and after the baby is born you still have to deliver the placenta (essentially an organ).

Pregnancy is terrifying, dangerous, and uncomfortable. None of you have the right to shit on Mila Kunis for telling the truth: You do not deserve the spotlight of your wife’s pregnancy. So get over yourselves. Yes, the father CAN be proud, and he should be. But it’s not his pregnancy. He is not the one who will endure it.

It is not weird that someone would want to be involved in their wife’s pregnancy. It is weird that you have the fucking nerve to lose respect for someone reminding you that the father is not the pregnant one in the picture.

So please, stop.

Today in male entitlement: now women ”have some nerve” if they remind men that they are not, in fact, the pregnant ones. 

Reblogging to add you rarely hear men say “we had an abortion” or “we had a miscarriage.” They certainly don’t say “we had an ectopic pregnancy” or “we’re struggling with postpartum depression.” Male entitlement is to share in the joy of pregnancy but not in the heartbreak, fear, shame, or difficulty that can come with it.

Oh, yeah, you never do!

Proof that even the best of us can have a bit of an aversion to change.

Copied and Pasted from an application for employment….

Christian conduct encompasses the biblical principles of humility, integrity and compassion to guide
us to act professionally and ethically at all time. Miracle Hill Ministries understands that we have al
l
fallen short in our past but the employees are expected to practice Christian conduct at Miracle Hill
including:
Abstain from the use of illegal drugs or the inappropriate use of medication.
Abstain from activities or addictions that have a detrimental e
ffect on clients or the reputation
of the ministry.
According to the teachings of Romans 14:13
-
23, we are to keep from
becoming a stumbling block to those within the ministry who make be apt to addiction. It is
important to exercise biblical discretion b
y restricting your freedom in public to include: use of
addictive substances such as alcohol or tobacco, choice of literature, and the choice of
entertainment. It is important to demonstrate sound judgment that is based on biblical
principles that display
s evidence of spiritual growth and maturity. (Titus 2:11
-
12).
Relationships, particularly with the opposite sex, are above reproach.
Live free of sexual sin (to include pornographic materials, homosexual conduct, and extra
-
marital relationships).
Res
pect the sanctity of life from conception until death in God’s timing
… definitely no longer applying.
I bolded some of the bullshittiest of the bullshit. Feel free to pick your favorites!I realize non-profits are allowed to do shit like this but…. UGGGGGH, can you keep your crazy “christian” fascism out of your charity work? Ever think maybe you could do more good by, oh I don’t know, being slightly more inclusive of all us mortals who fall far below your ridiculous moral hateful standards?
