I don’t care how many people I hurt unless I hurt someone important.
Especially if the people you hurt spew hateful stuff in your inbox.
It’s funny. I’m of the belief that everyone is important. But then again, I also believe in little things like equality and human rights, which you do not. So….
The Louisiana House yesterday voted to uphold an unconstitutional state ban on sodomy — essentially political jargon for gay sex — as part of its “crimes against nature” law.
In Lawrence v. Texas in 2003, the Supreme Court ruled that sodomy bans are unconstitutional. But a handful of states, including Louisiana, refuse to change their anti-sodomy laws. While the statute technically can’t be used as a basis to arrest people, Louisiana deputies have reportedly made sodomy-related arrests recently, inciting a lawmaker to try to repeal it.
Against all logic or reason, on Tuesday, the state House voted 66-27 to keep the anti-sodomy law in place.
In a letter urging Louisiana lawmakers to reject the proposal, the influential Christian lobbying organization wrote, “Louisiana’s anti-sodomy statute is consistent with the values of Louisiana residents who consider this behavior to be dangerous, unhealthy, and immoral.”
In a hearing earlier this month, Bill Smith, a member of the Louisiana Family Forum, told committee members that anti-sodomy laws save the lives of gay people by decreasing their exposure to HIV.
"I have homosexuals in my family. I’m here out of love and concern for the health of these people," Smith said in April. “The fact is this opens up ways for them to really kill themselves.”
I want to scream and cry and throw things.
needs to be put up in every school
moreover, it’s not my problem if they don’t. i’m not here to be eye candy. i’m allowed to wear shorts, i’m allowed to show skin, i’m allowed to have stretch marks and scars and blemishes and moles.
that’s really when everyone’s offended, you know. when you show off your less-than-perfect legs and break the illusion that all women should look good.
Usually they’re neo Nazis. I genuinely just don’t understand them.
Haha, it’s all good. People tend to assume that just becase of the prevelence of Christianity in Western culture.
I am Jewish! And as Judaism has no issue with abortion, it really hasn’t. I’m guessing you are as well from your handle, so if you’d like I can link you to some great rabbanical texts on it.
After Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed HB 2, the state’s omnibus anti-abortion bill, into law in the summer of 2013, abortion providers in the state rapidly began closing due to the law’s medically unnecessary provisions, which require abortion-providing doctors to obtain admitting privileges at local hospitals and severely restrict doctors’ ability to prescribe medication abortion. The …
UPDATE: As of April 11, there are 24 open abortion clinics, 6 of which are ambulatory surgical centers, in Texas. This is down from 25 open abortion clinics as of March 6.
I’ve never had one? I had an ectopic pregnancy removed a few years back though… do you mean that?
I’d get a very small abstract white ink of a pheonix in memory of my pregnancies
also please note that lupita is also up for vote! please vote for both her and laverne!
If you care about Laverne Cox, Lupita Nyong’o, and Steve McQueen, and want people to stop rewarding mediocrity from people who pretty much inherited their positions (Benedict Cumberbatch, Lena Dunham, and Megan Ellison), then this is the list for you to provide some feedback.
Depriving the homeless of their last shelter is Silicon Valley at its worst – especially when rich cities aren’t doing anything to end homelessness
Across the United States, many local governments are responding to skyrocketing levels of inequality and the now decades-long crisis of homelessness among the very poor … by passing laws making it a crime to sleep in a parked car.
This happened most recently in Palo Alto, in California’s Silicon Valley, where new billionaires are seemingly minted every month – and where 92% of homeless people lack shelter of any kind. Dozens of cities have passed similar anti-homeless laws. The largest of them is Los Angeles, the longtime unofficial “homeless capital of America”, where lawyers are currently defending a similar vehicle-sleeping law before a skeptical federal appellate court. Laws against sleeping on sidewalks or in cars are called “quality of life” laws. But they certainly don’t protect the quality of life of the poor.
Let’s see; keep pay low for average workers, keep pay high for the higher-ups, keep unemployment high by squeezing as much as possible out of those workers and basically tell anyone who can’t get by to stay out of sight.
whose life is being affected by someone sleeping in their own car?
Whenever pro-aborts tell you abortion pictures are fake, just remember… they never show you “real” pictures of aborted fetuses.
They’ll show tissue.
Just not the identifiable parts.
No one is entitled to someone else’s medical photos. Furthermore, photos like that can be triggering. Surprise! Pro-choice people actually give a shit about the born, sentient people who have to see photos.
Besides that, anti-choicers are really good at showing photos of miscarriages and still births, and when you aren’t showing those, you’re displaying photos of cats.
Lastly, we don’t need to show photos of standard medical procedures, because we can rely on scientific fact and not emotional manipulation.
