Awful, awful stories. I will never understand why sane people have such a hard time educating the next generation about sex. In a religious context, controlling sex ed is away of controlling people – I get that. But why would normal people NOT want their kids to know that sex makes babies, so unless you want babies you should take measures to prevent unwanted pregnancies?

I am pro-choice, and consider that a true tenet of being pro-life (as opposed to pro-heartbeat, anti-aid, pro-war, etc.). I’m not anti-abortion, but what is being described in this article is horrible. It’s disgusting! What human in their right mind decapitates babies? I certainly would agree that there comes a point when the performance of an abortion is inhumane and wrong, and support laws that stop legal abortions after a certain period of time in the pregnancy.

Made me laugh but also nod my head in agreement. There are lots of f-bombs, so if those offend you – be warned.
A couple of weeks ago, popular Facebook page Veganism Is The Future posted this photo:
Any dumbfuck can see that this is obviously not always the case, so I politely commented that not everyone who follows a healthy diet can look like the model in the image above and that this is a form of fat shaming and does not help the cause.
And then the comments started pouring in from the “compassionate” vegans saying that I was promoting an unhealthy lifestyle, that I’m obviously not following a vegan diet because I’m so fat, blah blah blah.
Then the admin of the page removed my original comment and continued to chastise me for my constructive criticism saying “You’re fat and I’m not going to sugarcoat things to make you feel better, you need to lose weight, I will not condone your unhealthy lifestyle”.
Needless to say, I lost my…

Found this article to be fascinating. I wholeheartedly agree. Certainly, people can reach a point where their weight impacts their health, but I think that point is greatly exaggerated many times. Why? Because so many people are making money off people who have been convinced they are ugly and unhealthy and need to go start a new diet or buy new exercise equipment.

There are a lot of things in this world that are really, really wrong. People who are killed, families torn apart, children who are starving. So many of us seem set on promoting violence and war instead of peace. How many millions have died because we couldn’t get along and show love to our neighbors?
Then there are all of the problems that have come with industrialization and modern things. The great power of science is being used for profit instead of the good of the people and the very future of humanity could be at stake (antibiotic resistant illnesses, GMO’s, global warming caused by plastics and so many other things, polluted air and water, chemicals in our food and everything around us).
It’s a lot to take in, and once you have taken it all in, you’re left wondering, “Well… what now? What can I do?” More

This is really sad. Kind of weird how I came across it, but here it is:
Milla Jovovich has always been super thin. Practically anorexic looking, actually. To see this picture of her with the caption of “Weight Gain” just makes me sick. The scrutiny that female celebrities undergo is terrible. The rest of us women are still caught up in it, stuck with the mindset of “thin is better.” If you didn’t already read it, please read what Ashley Judd said about the scrutiny she was put through and how awful it is for women everywhere.
Everyone is beautiful. Why must we all get hung up on our own weight and the weight of others? There are extreme weights (extremely overweight and extremely underweight) that can be dangerous to people’s health, but for those who are more in the middle, it’s not a life-altering thing… or shouldn’t be. Society’s fixation on fat and thin is both awful and unhealthy. If we must focus on something, it should be the personal health of each individual. Each body’s needs are different. Some people will be thinner than others and some people will be larger than others, just like those who are short or tall. Forcing one shape or another onto the whole of society is wrong. More
