Then I had other stuff to do all day and now I sit here staring at my cursor with cotton for brains.
If the Beast is a prince, where are the king and queen?
Why don’t we ever see Chip’s brothers and sisters when they become human?
Why does it stop raining when Scar becomes king of the Pridelands?
Why couldn’t Ariel write to Eric to communicate with him?
I love Disney, but in the wise words of Phil Collins, “I wanna know, can you show me…?”
mmmm okay I’ll try it.
1, king and queen were turned into the gargoyles that Gaston trashed with the club… they’d been hiding on the roof for years out of shame. No one misses them.
2, The terms “brothers” and “sisters” were Mrs. Potts being generous. They’re the orphans kidnapped to stoke the furnaces.
3, Mufasa was actually Aslan. The rocks cried out until is Son rose.
4, this one’s easy… Ariel is illiterate.
questions of my own:
How can Quasimodo’s imaginary gargoyle friends fight back the attacking soldiers?
When Gurgi reappears does that mean the deadly hoards come back?
Why did Patrick Stewart agree to be in BambiII?
Why does Home on the Range exist?
George Washington :)
A dream: I was 3ish standing at the top of the stairs when barber poles with micky mouse gloves on them flew in from every window and every door and grabbed my mother and drug her into the basement. I had the dream, like, a week straight.
What’s up with the people running interest blogs being trolls? I only follow a couple general interest blogs, but from what I’ve seen it’s normal for owners to tease their fanbase all the time. I sympathize that the blogs get loads of stupid questions but is it so hard just to ignore them and post the gifs, articles, and pictures I expected to find when I followed the blog in the first place?
The only time I EVER hear that is when people are trying to excuse behavior that is not cool.
The first time I ever heard it was from a feminist who was trying to excuse using stats about only white women. She was like “well if we use other stats it might confuse people and divide the movement”.
And now I’m hearing it from people who think I shouldn’t say that anti-choicers can’t be feminists.
No. You’re wrong.
Actually, if you’re anti-choice then you’re going against the woman’s right to have a say over her own body. How is that a feminist belief? It’s not. It’s ok to be pro-life for yourself but pro-choice for others because that’s her choice. She’s allowed to have that choice. But when you CHOOSE to try to TAKE AWAY someone else’s CHOICE that’s when you’re no longer advocating for the safety, the welfare, or health of that woman. Instead you’re giving her a higher chance to become more embedded in poverty, become unable to get out of an abusive situation, and you’re stopping her from taking care of something she desperately needs and wants.
No one’s pro-abortion. No one goes out and says “YAY!!! Abortions are FUN!” It’s a surgical procedure that is between her, and her doctor. If anything, people who are pro-choice tend to advocate for ways to prevent abortion but still keep it available such as easily obtainable and affordable health care, contraception, and sexual education. A majority of the women who have abortions are already below the poverty line. They already can’t afford a lot of things, and abortions are a lot less expensive than pregnancy and raising a child. It’s essentially one step toward a better society.
I normally don’t butt into discussions like this, especially because of how limited my knowledge on a lot of feminists issues is, but I agree that anti-choicers could be feminists.
I know a lot of people who are heavily against abortion, and while they would try to persuade people like me or anyone else, they would never actually try to force me, because it’s my choice.
Now, if you do go against a woman’s right to choose for herself and actively try to stop her, then yeah, plenty of people will question your feminism, and I myself see that as wrong. Of course, that doesn’t mean they don’t support other feminist causes. Just because they support a very un-feminists one, one which plenty of feminists don’t support, doesn’t mean they will suddenly want to force women to completely subjugate themselves to men or make decisions that would not benefit them.
It really just depends if you are talking about someone who is simply pro-life in their believes and wouldn’t have abortions herself , someone who would pass on those beliefs to their children and or would outcast a family member who did have one, or the actual movement to have laws passed to ban abortion. Even then, it’s a very gray area to just label each and everyone of these people as completely anti-feminists simply because of one thing they are doing wrong.
At least, that’s my opinion, and it is heavily biased by a certain culture.
I have a really hard time staying quiet about abortion. It’s one of the few things that get me really riled up. While I understand where those quoted above me are coming from, I wanted to state - as a woman - why I am pro-life.
Overall it has to do with the terms Pro-life vs Anti-choice. I am staunchly pro-life but I hate being called anti-choice. I am not anti-choice as a general principle, but I feel the concept of abortion goes beyond a woman making a personal decision. I’m a fan of women’s rights, but I believe it’s a liife - a human life - being taken when an abortion takes place. It’s not about religion or any of that, it just makes sense to me that life begins in the womb, and ending that life for whatever reason is not something that should be left up to convenience.
There are, of course, medical circumstances - when it’s a woman’s life vs her child’s life for example - but I count that as a triage type thing. Who has the best chance of surviving, the woman or the child? They are both people.
Calling me anti-choice is the same as someone with my opinion calling a pro-choicer an anti-lifer. Do you all really believe in taking lives? Of course you don’t! But you also don’t believe that fetuses are people yet, which is where our differences lie! You’re all good people, it’s a difference of opinion on the whole concept not a difference of opinion on the ballot issue. That’s why abortion legislation will never be settled. We’re not even fighting from two sides of the same coin! We’re fighting from completely different rooms and completely different mindsets.
To come back around to the issue at hand - can a pro-lifer also be called a feminist, I think think the answer is a resounding yes! We pro-lifers are all about women empowerment, we just believe the unborn person has rights too. It’s double feminism if the baby’s a girl! Power to them both.
I’m not trying to get anyone’s goat here, and I’m not going to hang anyone for being pro-choice because I recognize that to pro-choicers the answer is clear, and if I had a different opinion about the germination of life, I’d be one of you too. I just want the lines in the sand to be a little more clear.
