Mannnn, I was planning to finally write something about style and fashion, and YOU had to ruin it with your anti-abortion protests! So HOW could I talk about anything else right now? How can any level headed woman allow herself to be carefree and act ditzy?
Oh, dear, are you going to call me an anti-feminist now because saying “Mannnn” is further establishing the patriarchy?! Go ahead, I’m used to it. Nowadays, almost everything you say can be considered “offensive”.
#sidenote: A few days ago someone said I am standardising the ladies who appeared as the white snakes, just to empower myself. All faith is not lost though. There are still people out there who can think critically, giving you the benefit of doubt, and who perpetually chose to see the better chiseled facet of things. Thank you, Corina C. GH. for being one of those people. And that’s the idea, that’s the whole trick. Every story has sides, so why not chose the positive one? It’s actually very easy, you bitter, narrow-sighted humans. Try it, smile, take a Xanax or a shot of gin, unwind. We’re so focused on finding people to blame and shame that we hardly have any time to enjoy what we do.
#backtoreality: Really? People protesting abortion? Really? Maybe I’m the scatterbrained bimbo who did not get the memo that every other problem in this country was solved. Or am I?
I’ve recently told you that today, us women, we can be anything we want. I mean that and I believe it, wholeheartedly. And yet, I feel my soul chipping a bit because, well, look at us. Society is telling us – no, it’s shouting at us – that getting pregnant (be it unwillingly, unprepared, or god forbid, by rape) means signing a legally binding contract to go full term. There are so many things wrong with this – let me walk you through a series of questions:
- what if the fetus is sick?
- what if you can’t afford caring for a child in that moment of your life?
- what if you want a career and this is getting in your way of achieving that? Is it so fucking morally wrong to be driven and to love yourself, first and foremost?
- the most important: WHY “what if”? Why do I have to give an explanation regarding something I want to do to my own body? Why can’t I take this decision for myself? Why do you need to regulate this commitment or the lack thereof?
But do you know what’s fucking heartbreaking and inhumane? Those 60.000 children in the foster care system, that’s what breaks me every time. Beaten, famished, taken into a system that’s severely underfunded. They hardly get a chance to get a solid education, to grow from a nobody to somebody, to a valuable member of society, unless they are adopted. Which also rarely happens, because guess what, there’s a stigma regarding adoptions in Romania; it’s seen as something queer that goes against the natural order of things. No child should have to go through something as traumatic as this. I can’t even begin to imagine what feeling unloved and unwanted for so long does to your psyche.
Why not fight for them, you assholes? You think I’m selfish for not wanting children? I think you are chiefly concerned with you genetic profit for making your own instead of adopting. Two sides to every story, remember?
In a nutshell, just to make sure you get my stance on this issue:
