Fact Check on Aisle 3…
Never ceases to amaze and horrify me what egregious slurs people will reblog as stone cold fact without taking 10 seconds to Google if it’s even true.

I’m not a Bieber fan (really, REALLY not), but I despise being misquoted and having words put in my mouth.
Justin Bieber: “I really don’t believe in abortion. I think [an embryo] is a human. It’s like killing a baby.”
Rolling Stone: Even in the case of rape?
Justin Bieber: “Um. Well, I think that’s just really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I don’t know how that would be a reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.”
..and I still wonder why a Rolling Stone reporter thought asking a 16 year old boy what he thought about abortion was at all appropriate, or that his potential answers would be even vaguely interesting to readers (or more interesting than asking him about a subject he’d know about. Or, y’know, his music and stuff.)
It only took two long months, over 186,000 signatures on a petition to Mark Zuckerberg, and finally a furious Twitter campaign to get Facebook to remove Pages that graphically celebrated and encouraged rape and sexual violence.
This time, anyway.
Warning: some readers might find the rest of this article and its links disturbing.
Unfortunately this was not the first time Facebook had to be externally pressured to enforce its own Terms around the flashpoint topic of sexual violence. And no, we’re not talking about consensual spanky-spanky between adults. (I’m sure Facebook would have taken that Page down much sooner.)
The first round was in August, when people demanded that Facebook take down a so-called “rape humor” page called “You know she’s playing hard to get when your [SIC] chasing her down an alleyway.”
Facebook defended keeping the rape page as a sort-of everyday, harmless thing, and in a statement to the BBC likened the pro-rape page to “pub jokes.” (Remind me to never go drinking with Facebook.)
“A man molests a young woman sitting next to him on a Japanese train, drags her to a restroom and rapes her while she sobs. Some 40 fellow passengers fail to intervene.”

“This woman needs a good deep dicking”
This comment was made by someone I’d consider a friend as an unthinking response on an article about a woman on Fox who was criticizing recent advances in making sure insurance companies have to cover birth control.
When I deleted his comment and let him know that I don’t like to fight misogyny with misogyny, he got really offended at being called a misogynist.
Dude, go back and read your comment. You basically just advocated corrective rape against someone who believes differently than you do. I don’t care that what she believes is sexist and anti-woman… so is how you’re responding.
Seeing that stuff from people who consider themselves allies… it’s just always so disheartening. I need a glass of wine and cuddle time with my dog.
I see this from so many otherwise “liberal” men. It’s disheartening, yes.
There’s a woman who used to harass and threaten me daily on Twitter and still does occasionally, even though I blocked her in 2008, who still routinely uses misogynystic and rape related verbal attacks and threats at people, and denied to the death that was what she was doing by declaring someone she doesn’t like needed a good dicking or should shut up, or maybe she’d be shut up by a cock stuffed down her throat, or repeatedly threatening to put a collar on (various women) and make them her bitch, whereupon their disagreement with her would be solved by being fucked (against their will) with a giant purple dildo (she posted photos and claimed to be buying the aforementioned dildo to use on me and a friend) because they were obviously uptight and afraid of sex (and rape would fix that?)
But it has NOTHING to do with RAPE or using male rape culture rape threats!
If a male I knew said something like that to my face, I’d probably beat the living crap out of him. With her, I just think about how incredibly DAMAGED she must be, to think like that (also, I eventually made multiple FBI reports about her that included screencaps of all above threats).
^ [TW FOR RAPE]
Apparently me saying “okay but don’t go in (referring to being penetrated)” was consent and he didn’t stop until I pushed him off me. I guess that’s my fault though for being naked and consenting to ‘heavy petting’… (sarcasm).
The kind of mindset mentioned in this quote is really dangerous and needs to be nipped in the bud. Brilliant way of putting it.
Pro-life (Trigger Warning for Rape)
Pro-life is NOT anti-sex.
And it doesn’t have ANYTHING to do with Christianity. People need to stop associating the two with each other.
Being pro-life has to do with morals.
And being responsible.
If abortion was used for things OTHER THAN using it as a way to escape the consequences of your actions, and not using protection, then things would all be different.
But the problem lies with all those little teenage girls who are going to abortion clinics because they chose to have sex without protection, or didn’t protect themselves enough.
Those teens think they are grown enough to have sex and play around with it, but when it comes time to pay the bill, they want out.
That’s why it’s stupid.
Rape victims don’t count, neither do people who get pregnant and can’t continue with it for medical reasons, i.e. tubal pregnancies, having to go off meds for it, etc etc.
This isn’t addressing those cases, it’s addressing those women who kill their future child because they “can’t have kids at this time” or “aren’t ready to be a mom.”
Well maybe they should have thought of that before they opened their legs without the proper precautionary actions.
You don’t once mention here that life is sacred or any of that bull. Not once. So, considering also you also make the rape exception, you aren’t in this for the poor fetuses. You’re in this because you don’t want women to be sexually independent, and you want women who have sex recreationally to be punished for their choices with nine months of pregnancy, the most painful childbirth experience of all mammals, and either raising a baby which will cost $500,000 or more over its lifetime or giving it away for adoption, which can be far more emotionally scarring than an abortion.
Seriously, sex serves purposes in human beings other than reproduction. It’s a method of bonding and recreation for us, as well, and you have to respect that this is wired into our psychology. There are some people who never want kids; do you honestly expect them to never have sex as well? Don’t you slut-shame on me.
Precautions such as condoms and birth control can also fail, and hell, the Guttmacher Institute released a study which revealed that around half of all people seeking abortions were using some precautionary method during the month they became pregnant. How about them cookies?
Most people seeking abortions are in their 20s, not their teens. That’s a total stereotype. Again, Guttmacher Institute study.
Pointing out ignorance to people’s own misogyny like a boss. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of this.
“Pro-life is NOT anti-sex.”
“Well maybe they should have thought of that before they opened their legs without the proper precautionary actions.”
Do you wanna try telling me that again with a straight face?
54% of people seeking abortions were using some form of contraception. Of those who weren’t, about 30% was because they had concerns with contraception ie; latex allergies, blood clot risks from the pill etc. Another approx 30% were told they couldn’t get pregnant ie; infertile, vasectomies/tubes tied etc. Only 8% had never used protection ever, and the remaining percentage I can’t remember off the top of my head.
Regardless, it’s not up to you to decide how every pregnancy happens, nor how every pregnancy turns out. You don’t have to agree with abortion, but you cannot deny women access to abortion simply cuz you don’t like it. At the end of the day, women will take matters into their own hands and do it themselves or seek other unsafe options, which, as stated above, turns into 70,000 women dying every single year around the world due to unsafe abortion. Leaving behind 220,000 kids.
Do you wanna adopt those kids every year? Do you wanna tell those kids why they don’t have a mother?
“Cuz um, I thought abortion was wrong, so I tried to outlaw it and left your mom with no other options. So she um… died doing it herself. Sorry.”
Oh right, btw, 61% of women seeking abortions are ALREADY FUCKING MOTHERS.
Please go diaf or stfu. You clearly don’t know what you’re talking about.
That totally blew my mind. If you’re a man, not for the reason you think. You see, all men look like rapists to women. All of you, all the damn time. If you go out in public and you are a man, a woman has looked at you as a potential rapist. What blew my mind was the idea that men aren’t aware of this. Really, I thought you would be.
Here’s the thing, all women are always aware of the risk of rape. We all know how prevalent rape is. We’re all aware rape can happen to any woman at virtually any time and that no woman is entirely safe anywhere. Men may pass right over an account of a rape, but women do not. So we’ve heard stories of rapes in church bathrooms during services, in stairwells, elevators and parking garages, in changing rooms at department stores, in movie theaters, in cars, in planes, in parks, in airports, in buses, in our homes. We know that old women are raped, toddlers are raped, nuns are raped, pregnant women are raped, everyone is raped.
So, everywhere we go, we can’t help but think This is a place where rape happens. I am not unusually afraid of rape, by the way. This is a normal level of fear for a woman who has not been raped. Forever in Hell (via)
