women are literally raised to be subordinate and malnourished and live in fear of murder and rape so no i am not going to feel bad for men having to live up to masculinity which were set in place by men to, again, keep women subordinate
you are literally complaining about having the better end of the stick and it makes me sick to my stomach you can choke on your spoon
you can safely assume anytime fckh8 shows up and does anything that they’re pretty much parasites trying to capitalize on anything - from oppressed groups to tragedy or tragedies happening among oppressed groups - all for the sake of selling more fucking t-shirts and bumperstickers and shit and don’t and will never give a fuck about actually listening to people (especially those criticizing their profiteering tactics) or doing shit to actually help beyond some middle school ass PSA shit and you will never ever be wrong

… [P]ersons are trafficked into the international sex trade, often by force, fraud, or coercion. The sex industry has rapidly expanded over the past several decades. It involves sexual exploitation of persons, predominantly women and girls, involving activities related to prostitution, pornography, sex tourism, and other commercial sexual services. The low status of women in many parts of the world has contributed to a burgeoning of the trafficking industry. -

THAT IS RAPE
We need to be talking about this and we need to be making sex work safe. No one should be made to feel like this treatment is okay.

- Find a caregiver who has delivered multiples vaginally before if avoiding a cesarean is a goal.
- Reasons you may need a cesarean include if your babies share the same amniotic sac, or position (both being head down, or the second one being breech or sideways is usually fine, but first one being breech or sideways may need a cesarean)

- Talk to other parents of twins, especially those who have given birth the way you want to give birth, and especially good birth stories.
- Remember, you don’t need a “just in case” epidural. If you do end up needing a c-section there is usually plenty of time for you to get an epidural instead of general anesthesia.
- Don’t focus too much on the risks, because worrying doesn’t help anything.
Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)
The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover
