White people scream race doesn’t matter until someone makes their favorite character black
Honestly? PROVIDE THE FINANCIAL AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT THAT MANY YOUNG MOTHERS NEED.
Donate to charities—NOT explicitly prolife ones—that will offer financial and material support to mothers in need. NEVER vote to cute welfare. Donate toys and clothes and diapers and blankets whenever and wherever you can.
Don’t ever try to talk someone out of having an abortion. Just try to help women not feel *forced* to have an abortion.
And if you know someone who wants an abortion? Support their choice. In whatever way they need you to. If they want you to drive them to and from the clinic, fucking do it. You’re not supporting abortion—YOU aren’t the one giving money to abortionists—you’re supporting your friend.
Also, don’t vote pro-life (because that puts people who want abortions in danger, and thus is directly contradictory to trying to support them) and for the love of god, don’t be one of those people who goes on about how they personally would never get an abortion, because that just adds to the stigma against people who do.
Oh, and NEVER EVER
PRESSURE SOMEONE INTO PUTTING THEIR CHILD UP FOR ADOPTION.
DON’T EVEN TALK ABOUT ADOPTION UNLESS THEY HAVE MADE IT COMPLETELY CLEAR THAT THEY WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT. I DON’T CARE IF THEY’RE LEANING TOWARD ABORTION OR TOWARD KEEPING THE BABY. DO NOT PRESSURE PEOPLE TO PUT THEIR CHILDREN UP FOR ADOPTION.
And defend single mothers at all costs and in every spear of your life. Defend poor mothers. Defend disabled mothers. Defend mothers with careers. Defend mothers with more than the average number of children. Defend mothers with children from different fathers. Defend mothers who put their children up for adoption. Basically just defend mothers.
Oh, and this shouldn’t fucking need saying, but I know from experience that it does: DEFEND MOTHERS WHO CHOOSE TO KEEP CHILDREN THAT WERE CONCEIVED BY RAPE.
I recognize that I have a tendency, as a cis person, to speak too much about trans issues where it isn’t my place to do so and I’m working on cutting back on it.
And I appreciate the apology you’ve sent in.
however, I’m really put off by it because… You felt the need to tack on that you’re pro-life when I’ve reblogged a shit-ton of pro-choice stuff recently. I find the pro-life movement and those who support it to be grossly emotionally manipulative and not really giving two fucks about women at all.

that opinion doesn’t respect me, that opinion keeps me from having rights, and that fucking opinion dehumanizes me
why the FUCK would i respect that
This post originally said ‘straight people.’ I changed it to ‘gay people.’
That’s how ignorant this posts sounds.
The fact that Tumblr promotes heterophobia and that posts like this get 5k notes disgusts me just as much as seeing people rallying to put down the LGBT+ community.
kay but str8ies are boring as shit, and as a person who eats oatmeal, I am offended.
On behalf of oatmeal.
Oatmeal is so much better than straight people.
scrolling through certain blogs that are really upset about “heterophobia” and “cisphobia” and “misandry” and “reverse racism” and all that bull crap always make me laugh
b/c you can type out a 50 page single spaced essay with hundreds of sources and mail it to them and their only response would be “bUT YOU’RE STILL JUSTIFYING BULLYING!!!!!”
when i have literally never seen anyone EVER getting “bullied” on here just for being cis/straight/white/male/ect.
they may get called a piece of shit b/c of something they said that was incredibly offensive or ignorant.
people might make posts saying “ugh i wish straight/cis/white people didn’t exist” or “ew cis people are gross,” but come on; are you kidding me that’s so far from bullying that it’s not even funny. like my boyfriend runs a blog that says shit like “cis people are poopy heads,” and people have sent him fucking death threats.
b/c yea, sometimes i wish cishet people didn’t exist, b/c it would make life a lot easier on me and other queer/LGBTQA+ people. that doesn’t mean that i hate individuals just for being part of the oppressing group, and i’ve never seen a single person who does.
and these opinions that they have on this issue aren’t “unpopular.” the majority of people, even on tumblr, are stuck right to your side. most of my friends on tumblr who are queer or poc or disabled or mentally ill get hate on here every fucking day, and i’ve had a lot of them delete their blogs several times because of it. sorry if i care more about that then the posts venting about how cis/straight/white/able bodied/ect people as a whole kinda suck and the other posts calling people out when they say something transphobic, or racist, or ableist. ugh.
heterophobia and cisphobia?
I’m all for equality, but this.. what..
neither of those things actually exist.
