What if you name your cat Amirite so when the vet comes in the waiting room and says “Amirite?” you say “IT’S PRONOUNCED AH-MEHR-E-TAY.” LOL

indigenousfeminist:

“Men’s indifference to learning about contraception and to taking any responsibility for it is a theme that emerges from many reports of projects that have attempted, and failed, to reach and educate men. One of the most successful programs of contraception education for men, a Planned Parenthood project in Chicago, abandoned its attempts to reach men over the age of twenty-five when it was found that these men simply would not participate, even when offered beer, sandwiches, free condoms—and “stag” movies. Instead, the project targeted a younger group, and as part of its research the project conducted a survey of over a thousand men aged fifteen to nineteen:

• These young men were asked whether they agreed with the statement “It’s okay to tell a girl you love her so that you can have sex with her.” Seven out of ten agreed that it’s okay.

• They were asked whether they agreed with the statement “A guy should use birth control whenever possible.” Eight out of ten disagreed and said a guy should not.

• And when asked, “If I got a girl pregnant, I would want her to have an abortion,” nearly nine out of ten said no, they would not want her to have an abortion. These teenage men agreed: Deception to obtain coital access is okay; male irresponsibility in contraception is okay; but abortion is not okay—“because it’s wrong.”

Largely because of attitudes such as these, one million teenage women—one tenth of all teenage women—become pregnant each year, and two thirds of their pregnancies are not wanted.”

—John Stoltenberg, Refusing to be a Man

This is why I say: pro-choice is not just about abortion. With choice comes responsibility, and frankly, if you’re not gonna be responsible for your own shit then I have the choice to send your ass out the door. People who are not responsible enough to use protection and/or consider their partners’ well-being are anti-choice in my book. Being reproductively and sexually coercive violates my bodily autonomy.

alexbalk:

You ever notice how the phrase “I’m going to be honest with you” is never followed by something pleasant like, “We’re bumping you up to first class,” or “It’s all blowjobs from here on out”? Honesty sucks, apparently.

Someday, Alex Balk. Someday.

Campfire Stories

me: Did you know there was a program for female astronauts in the 60s? It was called WISP, Women In Space! They stopped it because they were worried about gravity-free menstruation.
michelle: Did you know that the air inside the Apollo 1 capsule was pure oxygen? So the slightest spark, even the friction from removing your suit, could start a fire, and that's how they died. That is why they started adding nitrogen to the air.
me: Did you know that Chuck Yeager said "Holy shit" when he first stepped on the moon, and NASA censored it out of the broadcast?

yoni191:

“The key axis-moment in DC punk history is the Cramps show at Hall of Nations in 1979. Though it’s hard to believe the ultra-serious straight edge and emo scenes would be born from a band as joyous and goofy as the Cramps, the fact is, like the famed Ramones show that inspired every important British punker, this concert was attended by future members of Minor Threat, Rights of Spring and many other significant DC bands. And it was at that show that Bad Brains handed out flyers for their debut show in the Hudson basement”

- James Porter and Jake Austen

‘…Yet though you can’t be a card-carrying foodie if you don’t know the provenance of your heirloom tomato, you apparently can be one if you don’t know how the members of your wait staff are treated. We don’t seem to mind or even notice that our servers might be making $2.13 an hour. That tip you debate increasing to 20 percent might be the difference in making the rent.’
