What women really deserve...

Recommended Posts

I saw this video and instantly wanted to show it to the Duggars and every other crazy fundy out there who is anti-abortion and anti-welfare. Maybe they should actually go and meet some of the women who are really affected by an issue like this.

Very powerful. But I would go one further in that "they" are not going to "give us back our voice". We're going to have to take it back.

I dunno----Stop shaming them for being sexual beings and making choices you don't agree with. And please explain how the fuck you paid for their iphone with your tax dollars? Oh wait, that's right- because all the young sluts are on welfare, right? Gosh, how cruel of them that they don't respond with absolute gratitude and joy for a fucking LAYETTE?? When they're facing 18 years of raising an unwanted child, or a lifetime of pain over giving away a child, if you get your way? Wow. i hate pro-lifers.

Or having to tell daddy they are knocked up when they know that they can consider themselves lucky if all that happens is getting kicked out and disowned.

Damn, did I miss someone making an ass of themselves? I hate it when that happens. At least have the ovaries to not erase what you got called out on when you realize you can't defend it!

Use the quote feature, people! (j/k)

Austin, I thought about it then thought naaah, that's not necessary- who deletes posts??

Obviously, anti-choicers :)

Lissar, RainbowColor shared a little bit about her work at a CPC and how mean and sullen the angry teenage girls were that came there and ZOMG aren't they happy they got a freaking free pregnancy test and a layette?!

I'm having trouble with my speakers so I looked up the word. Maybe some of you are having trouble hearing the speaker also.

Culturally-diversified bi-racial girl,

with a small diamond nose-ring

and a pretty smile

poses beside the words: “Women deserve betterâ€.

And I almost let her non-threatening grin begin to

infiltrate my psyche-

till I read the unlikely small-print at the bottom of the ad.

‘Sponsored by the US Secretariate for Pro Life Activities

and the Knights of Columbus’

on a bus, in a city with a population of 563,000.

Four teenage mothers on the bus with me.

One latino woman with three children under three,

and no signs of a daddy.

One sixteen year old black girl,

standing in twenty two degree weather

with only a sweater,

and a bookbag,

and a bassinet, with an infant that ain’t even four weeks yet-

Tell me that yes: Women do deserve better.

Women deserve better

than public transportation rhetoric

from the same people who won’t give that teenage mother

a ride to the next transit.

Won’t let you talk to their kids about safer sex,

and never had to listen as the door slams

behind the man

who adamantly says “that SHIT ain’t hisâ€-

leaving her to wonder how she’ll raise this kid.

Women deserve better than the three hundred dollars

TANF and AFDC will provide that family of three.

Or the six dollar an hour job at KFC

with no benefits for her new baby-

or the college degree she’ll never see,

because you can’t have infants at the university.

Women deserve better

than lip-service paid for by politicians

who have no alternatives to abortion.

Though I’m sure right now

one of their seventeen year old daughters

is sitting in a clinic lobby, sobbing quietly

and anonymously,

praying parents don’t find out-

Or is waiting for mom to pick her up because

research shows that out-of-wedlock childbirth

don’t look good on political polls.

And Sarah ain’t having that.

Women deserve better

than backward governmental policies

that don’t want to pay for welfare for kids,

or healthcare for kids,

or childcare for kids.

Don’t want to pay living wages to working mothers.

Don’t want to make men who only want to be

last night’s lovers

responsible for the semen they lay.

Just like [they] don’t want to pay for shit,

but want to control the woman who’s having it.

Acting outraged at abortion,

when I’m outraged that they want us to believe

that they believe

“Women deserve betterâ€.

The Vatican won’t prosecute pedophile priests,

but I decide I’m not ready for motherhood

and it’s condemnation for me.

These are the same people

who won’t support national condom distribution

to prevent teenage pregnancy—

But women deserve better.

Women deserve better than back-alley surgeries

that leave our wombs barren and empty.

Deserve better than organizations bearing the name

of land-stealing, racist, rapists

funding million dollar campaigns on subway trains

with no money to give these women—

While balding, middle-aged white men

tell us what to do with our bodies,

while they wage wars and kill other people’s babies.

So maybe,

Women deserve better than propaganda and lies

to get into office.

Propaganda and lies

to get into panties,

to get out of court,

to get out of paying child-support.

Get the fuck out of our decisions

and give us back our VOICE.

Women do deserve better.

Women deserve choice.

Can't back it up, I guess. . .

Debrand, thanks for posting the words. I had trouble hearing her in some spots, plus I think I will copy it into a file just to keep. :)

ARGH. Well, she sounds like a peach, doesn't she? I suppose it never crossed her mind that a teenager who might be pregnant could be stressed out and scared?

Thanks for confirming my previous thoughts on why CPCs are mostly shit, Rainbowcolor. I think it's time I scrape up some money for Planned Parenthood.

I'm glad the words were posted, but reading them just doesn't have the same power as the performance. Wow.

I never post shit like this on my Facebook, but this was an exception.

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
