by all means call out john green on his bullshit don’t stand for one bit of it but while you’re at it don’t throw the 13 year old girls who read his books under the bus with him for crying over fictional boys and photoshopping flower crowns onto things and blogging about their social anxiety protect them at all fucking costs

Anonymous asked: why does everyone hate the fault in our stars thing with thw boy and the cigaratte? I don't understand what's bad about it.

Because it’s the most pretentious, douchey, shit-headed thing for someone to spend 5.75 on a pack of goddamn cigarettes and not even bother to smoke them for the sake of some dumb-idiot metaphor that doesn’t even make sense.  And to do it in front of someone who’s had cancer spread to their lungs?  Yeah, no, fuck that guy.  

Of course, that’s how his character was written; he’s supposed to be a pretentious douche.  I just think written on paper it makes everyone think, “oh my god wow he’s so profound yes ily” but then they hear the words spoken in real life by an actor portraying his character correctly and people realize, “holy cow, this guy’s an asshole."  Good on you, John Green.

"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.

Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon. 
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy. 
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died. 
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies. 

reblogging for commentary 

But, assuming the mother wasn’t raped, the choice to HAVE a baby and risk sacrificing their “bodily autonomy” is a choice that the mother made. YOu don’t have to have sex with someone. Cases of rape aside, it isn’t ethical to say abortion is justified. The unborn baby has rights, too. 

First point: Bodily autonomy can be preserved, even if another life is dependent on it. See again the example about the blood donation. 
And here’s another point: When you say that “rape is the exception” you betray something FUNDAMENTALLY BROKEN about your own argument.
Because a fetus produced from sexual assault is biologically NO DIFFERENT than a fetus produced from consensual sex. No difference at all.
If one is alive, so is the other. If one is a person, so is the other. If one has a soul, then so does the other. If one is a little blessing that happened for a reason and must be protected, then so is the other. 
When you say that “Rape is the exception” what you betray is this: It isn’t about a life. This isn’t about the little soul sitting inside some person’s womb, because if it was you wouldn’t care about HOW it got there, only that it is a little life that needs protecting.
When you say “rape is the exception” what you say is this: You are treating pregnancy as a punishment. You are PUNISHING people who have had CONSENSUAL SEX but don’t want to go through a pregnancy. People who DARED to have consensual sex without the goal of procreation in mind, and this is their “consequence.” 
And that is gross. 

This has been added to since I last saw it, so reblogging again.

Busted wide open.

Jessie J comes out as STRAIGHT

takealookatyourlife:

On one hand, hooray for fluid sexuality! A+ for making her own choices and doing her thing.

But on the other this is a terrible day for bisexual representation and a great day for “bisexuality is a phase!!”. 

I was very much hoping that because this is the idiotic rag that is the Daily Mail, some of the quotes within have been exaggerated or taken out of context. However after some further googling, similar quotes etc can be found in numerous papers and sites.

Aside from the whole “I understand rom-coms now! Sex And The City is real!” bullshit, she is quoted as denying her bisexuality by saying “I have grown up a LOT”, because obviously bisexuality is a childish phase.

I am incredibly disappointed in this woman. I understand totally that sexuality is fluid, and if she feels the need to announce that she has changed, that is perfectly fine. The manner in which she has done so however, is insulting. She has basically confirmed the media’s suspicions that claiming to be bisexual is nothing more than an attention seeking stunt.

I am so disappointed that she couldn’t have handled this with some tact, and used it as an opportunity to raise awareness for bisexuals around the world. She once claimed to be one of us, but now that she isn’t, casually hurting us seems to be acceptable.

why dont you read what she actually said in those tweets and not what is said in the press. Then you would know that she said that for her it was a phase but that doesn’t mean that is is for everyone. people shouldn’t make celebs ambassadors of the LGBT community, yeah she didn’t express herself perfectly, but celebs shouldn’t be put on a pedestal of how the ideal LGBT person should behave. that kind of attitude is just unhealthy. and she hasn’t talked about having any sexual interactions with women in YEARS so it’s not like its a shock to those actually following her career

I said in my post that I looked this up. I read all of her tweets, and I read the lengthier posts she made on the subject. And what she said was not good enough. Here is why.

 - She should NEVER have used the term ‘phase’. That term is the slap in the face that every single bisexual person faces every day. The fact that she would use it after being a role model for young bisexual girls is not acceptable.

- She actually used the phrase “I have grown up A LOT” indicating that bisexuality is something that only teenagers go through, another ‘phase’ jab.

- What does her not having been with a woman in years have anything to do with anything? Drew Barrymore hasn’t been with a woman in years. Angelina Jolie hasn’t been with a woman in years.

- She was a role model, and she gave millions of bisexuals hope that they too would be accepted by the general public as a legitimate orientation. She had a responsibility towards young bisexuals everywhere, and she failed them.

- Once again, gender is fluid, and that she has every right to make such an announcement. However the manner in which she did so was so poorly executed, and I have no doubt that it will cause a lot of harm in the long run.

- The lack of female, gay or bisexual role models for young women is astonishing. Laura Kay sums it up succinctly when she said “I get excited when I see a high-profile gay woman because I see myself in her; being succesful, being accepted. Jessie J has described her relationships with women as a phase.”

- It is perfectly acceptable for Jesse J to be straight. That’s totally fine. More power to her. But having come out in the first place, becoming a beacon of hope for an entire community, and then to dismiss it all as something she did when she was young and naive is bitterly disappointing. It’s an insult to the people who loved her for her bravery. It’s like she’s saying that bisexuality is just a teenage thing, and once you understand the real world, you grow out of it.

Clearly you don’t understand what’s at stake here. Bisexuals are marginalised in almost every aspect of society, with lesbians and gay people believing that they’re just “going through a phase” (ohohoh there it is again) and straight people believing that they don’t even fucking exist. That lack of support and constant dismissal takes its toll. Brown University carried out a study on bisexual health compared to other sexual orientations and the results are shocking. Other studies have shown that due to lack of representation and support systems, bisexuals (particularly the youth) suffer more alienation and therefore substance abuse and suicide attempts.

Jesse J could have said any of this. She could have elaborated just a TEENSY bit more on that whole, y’know, “it’s not a phase for other people” thing. She could have talked about the health risks bisexuals face, the shitty representation of bisexuals in the media. She could have told her bi fans that she was still proud of them, and that she continued to support the bisexual community. She could have done any of this.

Instead she told us it was a phase, and that she doesn’t want to talk about it any more.
