When your girlfriend gets into the shower on cold winter mornings, put a clean towel in the dryer. When you hear the water turn off, grab the towel from the dryer and bring it to her. She’ll smile. Guaranteed.
“There is no intensity of love or feeling that does not involve the risk of crippling hurt. It is a duty to take this risk, to love and feel without defense or reserve.”—William Burroughs (via weedbrain)
Hi I really don't wanna come off as abrasive but I feel like this will anyway. I feel like the whole "No uterus, No opinion" thing is really dumb at least in the case of abortions. I understand that women carry a huge burden with holding the child and everything one definitely huger than the one I'd be carrying if we were trying to have a child but the thing is I'm still part of the process. I'd feel some kind of way if my gf got an abortion and didn't say anything to me.(Part 2 coming in a sec)
Simply because it doesn’t only become her child because it’s inside her, it’s still our child. And I fully believe that excluding men by saying we don’t have any leeway because it’s only your body is one serious problem I have with the feminist movement. Unless your life is in danger you should really try to discus murdering your unborn child(I guess that’s my bias here) with its father because it doesn’t only affect you.
I never talk about abortion on here, but I’m going to. Fuck it.
I hate to tell you, but unless you have the ability to carry that child to term, your opinion means nothing when it comes to the legal rights of a woman’s body. You can’t say, “sure, it’s her body that has to go through the torment and toll of pregnancy for nine months but it’s my kid, too.” Wrong. It’s your SPERM. You have done nothing in this process but ejaculate and it’s not fair that you want to force women to carry their rapists’ offspring, their abusive husband’s baby, a baby they cannot take care of properly, or any other shitty situation because you don’t want to personally risk having your sperm fertilizing an egg and being aborted.
If you don’t want your girlfriend to have an abortion, you should discuss your views about this with her. If she disagrees with you, you shouldn’t be having sex. If she doesn’t want to carry a child to term, you cannot force her to. If that risk of an abortion bothers you, don’t fuck her or get a vasectomy. If she agrees not to abort it, fine. But not all of us can or will carry children at this point in our lives and you have no fucking say in whether or not we do that.
The laws that are being pushed against abortion are oppressive, sexist, and fucking disgusting excuses to further control women’s bodies. If men like you don’t want to have your DNA aborted maybe you shouldn’t be risking that with sex. Have a vasectomy, only engage in sex with like-minded women, or abstain. You have no fucking right to demand a woman to carry your child.
