ridiculously long list of dean's dropped plot lines

bubblewrapstargirl:

  1. in 1x05, Dean’s eyes bleed when he confronted Bloody Mary, which only happens to people who feel responsible for a violent death. Kripke said there was a reason why Dean’s eyes bled and it was a “dark secret”
  2. prostitution and/or sexual abuse; Dean recognises the smell…

psa you can be a feminist AND be pro-life i been on this grind for 20 years and i’m here to tell you that it is v doable

I know there are pro lifers who identify as feminist.

But like….how do you support denying pregnant people, the majority…

the thing that you are missing here is that i never said anything about denying women bodily autonomy.  i said i’m pro-life, which means i believe that life begins at conception and in following aborting an unborn baby is the equivalent of taking a life.  which obviously i believe is wrong.

at no point did i say that i condone the current pro-life movement, because i think usually it goes about addressing the conflict wrongly (like basing all its arguments religiously when not everyone is religious) and generally attacks pro-choicers which is the wrong way to go about effecting change.  i never even said i want to deny women access to a safe abortion.  i recognize that not everyone believes the same as me, and while that makes me sad, i know that it isn’t right to dictate what decisions a woman can make concerning her body.  also, women are going to find ways to abort whether or not abortion is legal so i think it’s better if it’s at least safe.

i am pro-life, but i understand that my beliefs can only apply to my life and my body.  my goal here isn’t to oppress women and it DEFINITELY isn’t to support a patriarchal system.  for me this is 100% about supporting what i truly believe is a live human being.  i want to protect women who are pregnant, especially those who do not want to be, but I also want to speak out for their unborn children.  both have a right to safety and happiness.  personally i think the best solution to this is to provide a variety of viable options to pregnant women in non ideal situations that would encourage them to carry to term, such as free health care or counseling or supplies or other government compensation.  whatever they need.

i also think that current sex education sucks and that kids need to be better informed about birth control options.  i know that preparedness can’t prevent all unwanted pregnancies but it’s definitely a start.

in conclusion i am not responsible for the misogyny and anti-feminism reflected in the pro-life movement because i do not agree with it, and i think that assuming that i would be that way because i’m pro-life is a little like when people assume feminists are all misandrists; it’s a quick judgement based on the most extreme members of the group.  i have utmost love and respect for all women regardless of their stance on this issue, and i will never judge any woman based on whether or not she carries to term.  i know i barely scratched the surface here so i’m open to any other comments or concerns, but i’m not going to answer anything hateful.  

thanks living-for-fiction and @fandomsandfeminism (i can’t tag you for some reason) for opening this for friendly discussion

What you have described is a pro-choice position. The label pro-choice doesn’t mean you like abortion (though one may), it means you want abortion to be legal so people can make that decision for themselves.

Along with legal, accessible, and safe abortion, support and resources for people who choose to continue pregnancies as well as education and resources to prevent unwanted pregnancies in the first place are vital to the pro-choice position.

the problem is that i still don’t consider myself pro-choice, because i don’t think abortion is a viable option.  i disagree with it because i see it as harmful to a human being, in this case the unborn child, and just because i understand that women have a right to access it doesn’t mean i’m going to ignore that.  i am actively opposed.  i will fight against abortion by promoting any and all other resources until women don’t feel they need it anymore.  i envision a world where pregnant women and unborn babies are so protected and cared for that abortion becomes obsolete.  i know it isn’t as simple as i want it to be but i don’t feel like i can call myself pro-choice when i am working towards an abortion-free future. 

imo this sort of disconnect often arises because people use these labels as “moral” terms, when in fact they are political ones. It all boils down to whether you believe people should be able to legally access abortion at thier discretion. If the answer is yes (even if you envision a future where no one wants/needs one*), then you are politically pro-choice.

I mean, anyone can self-identify however they want, but to say you are pro-life heavily implies to others that you think it should not be available at all, with few or no exceptions. This political ideology is closely tied to restricting access in a variety of ways (geographical, economic, etc.) and legal attempts to define personhood in such a way as to successfully ban the procedure.

Pro-choicers are trusting pregnant people to make the best decision for themselves within the complex personal circumstances only they fully comprehend: whether that means having the ability to avoid pregnancy, carrying to full term, or stopping a pregnancy as soon as possible.

The first two aren’t ideas proprietary to a pro-life stance, though to be frank I haven’t met too many pro-lifers who pay them more than lip service. (I’m not knocking you personally, just sharing my experience.)

*Some abortion will always be necessary for medical reasons, though it is important to note that this type of reason is not superior to any other.
