The Times of India is running 1/4 page ads on why men should respect women.
This is huge. There are no words for how happy I am to post this vs everything I usually reblog.
(Waiting for the NY Times to do something similar. Of course, they’d have to take time off from justifying the actions of gang rapists.)
Rats, unlike humans, will only breed if their environment is stable. If there is a limited food source they will not breed. Many rat “problems” are caused by bird feeders putting out much more food than the birds can eat. The simple solution is to limit the food that is available. No food = no rats. Many of us do not mind rattie visitors but sadly neighbours are quite often a problem!

Here’s something you CAN buy with your Benefit Payment Card!
If you agree with this horrendous idea - the Benefit Payment Card, where benefits recipients receive a card that can only be spent on certain things and not other - then please just get out of my life now. Human beings are free agents. It’s none of your bloody business whether I spend my benefits on Smart Price bread or blow it all on fucking manicures. It’s my money, and I have the right as an adult human being to choose what I spend it on.
I get it, I really do. Choice is important. My feminism doesn’t deny any choice. But what it might do is ask the chooser to truly examine why they are making a particular choice. It asks women (and men, and other people) to self-analyse, to look at what social, economic, and institutional factors are influencing their choice. It points out to them that no choice is made in a vacuum and asks them to really consider their choices once the context is illuminated.
I’m just going to reblog this for the 56464th time.
Don’t mind me.
I need you to do something for me.
This is a petition started by my friend Ianthe. Basically, a guy in ISU’s theatre department recently qualified to represent the school at a prestigious theatre festival…
sorry, but sometimes the truth hurts…
There’s no such thing as equal rights for the unborn considering if a pregnant person did not want to be pregnant with said unborn woman, said unborn woman would have to violate the rights of the pregnant person to stay and grow inside of that unwilling pregnant person’s body against that unwilling pregnant person’s wishes.
Unborn or not, no human being has the right to touch or otherwise use any other person’s body and that’s the truth, though I’m pretty sure you don’t care.
umm, this is pretty black and white. you along with many others may disregard the importance and rights of human life/the unborn, but i am advocating for equal rights. i’m sorry if you don’t understand that.
So if I need a heart transplant ‘cause I’ll die without one, I have the right to demand you give me yours… right? Equal rights. Because what you’re advocating here is that one person has the right to another person’s body in order to stay alive…
you radical pro-abortion/feminist really do get boring with the recycled, trivial comebacks. again the pro-life concept is pretty simple, i believe in the right to life. so basically your concept of taking away someone else’s life in order to save yours, makes no sense at all. the mother and the fetus should both have the right to life. if the mother’s life and fetus are in danger, then obviously, being PRO-LIFE, i would choose life and save the mother. i’m saying that i believe no one should have the right to destroy a human life inside them. in this day and age the unborn have no rights and they should, they should have the right to live.
if the mother’s life and fetus are in danger, then obviously, being PRO-LIFE, i would choose life and save the mother.
Ah, so you do agree that the mother’s right to life is more important than the foetus’s.
