"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.

Taylor’s speech before All Too Well in Sydney. It’s BASICALLY the same as the one in Auckland but just slightly a little bit different.
My heart stopped when she said “…Someone that you can tell anything. If all of a sudden you had the courage to tell them whatever you wanted them to know, whether it’s that you secretly are in love with them…” and her smile during it!! She also adds in “or you wish that someday you could be together” when listing the different situations she writes about.
"someone that you can tell anything" tho UM HI LIKE A BESTIE?
I’m slightly terrified for this year to end. We got a lot already. There are probably seven or eight [songs] that I know I want on the record. It’s really ahead of schedule for me. I’m just stoked because it’s already evolved into a new sound, and that’s all I wanted. And I would have taken two years to make that happen, but it just kind of happened naturally, so that’s all I could really ask for.
true love is having a crush on him even after he got a haircut
the female mind is a very strange place.
No one’s denying it
the best kind of flirting: the flirting where apparently neither of you knew you were flirting but APPARENTLY EVERYONE ELSE DID
when the teacher says u can work in pairs and u and ur friend are like
switzerland is my favorite part of europe youve got this bullshit triple entente shit to your left and the entire goddamn triple alliance to your right and youre sitting there just outside the battlefield switzerland does not have time for your world war 1 crap switzerland is strong
They avoided getting involved with their natural mountain defenses and the fact that, well
A HUGE PORTION of their populous had rifle training with the possible estimate of every household in the country owning a rifle, meaning that despite its relatively small official army, every citizen had the ability to defend themselves and the training to do it with.
When the Kaiser of Germany in World War I, during a demonstration of military maneuvers, asked a guest of the Swiss government what their 500,000 strong Swiss army could do against a 1,000,000 man Germany army
The guest promptly replied
"Shoot twice and go home"
To demonstrate how fucking crazy awesome Switzerland is, they also apparently have 300,000 detonation points across the country so that in the case that they do get invaded they can cripple infrastructure to prevent their enemies from using it.
i fear switzerland

"You need to leave" a teachers first response when they have no idea what the fuck to do or how to handle a situation of being wrong
I’ve seen posts floating around about how you should “always respect your teacher” and this right here proves my point that sometimes teachers do NOT deserve your respect. I’m fucking proud of this girl for calling him out and telling him what bullshit he’s causing. High school is a nesting ground for insecurity and body issues enough.
u know those zits u get right near ur lip??? yeah fuck that
I don’t go running because I want to be thin.
