"I don't think that being a strong person is about ignoring your emotions and fighting your feelings. Putting on a brave face doesn't mean you're a brave person. That's why everybody in my life knows everything that I'm going through. I can't hide anything from them. People need to realise that being open isn't the same as being weak."
- Taylor Swift

Video Friday: Confusing Anti-Abortionist Activists
On a side note, I think this really does show how little we think of women - of the rights and feelings of women - when we talk about sex and procreation and reproductive rights. When all those fuckers were sympathising with the Steubenville rapists nobody was thinking about the state of mind or all the human rights that were violated for the rape victim. We can harp on about how 'abortion is murder' - it's not - but when it comes down to it, we don't think about what demonizing abortion really is; punishing women for having sex.
