LIBERATION

Liberation
(noun): the act of setting someone free from imprisonment, slavery, or oppression; release.

In Alabama, Georgia, and Ohio, r8pists now have more rights than their victims. Corpses have more bodily autonomy than anyone with a uterus (inclusive of women, trans men, non-binary folks). If you think this doesn’t affect you, you are wrong. It affects EVERYONE. Because it is only one example of the ways that oppression exists within our society.

If you think you’re free, you’re not. You may not feel your shackles as much as others, but they are still there. Oppression doesn’t just target one group of people; it STARTS with one group of people. It is how the middle class disappears, how democracy becomes theocracy, oligarchy, dictatorship.

Is it really freedom if it is at the expense of others? What about when you become the expendable one?

The word is out, privilege is no longer a secret, and ignorance is no longer viable. If you’re still ignorant, it is a stick your head in the sand and pretend it doesn’t exist kind of ignorance. Willful ignorance. You are making the choice and it is a choice that we cannot afford, and many of us do not have the ability to make.

I know many of you speak up and speak out. But some of you don’t, even when it is safer for you to do so. So, this is for you:

If you believe the government/society shouldn’t be able to tell you what you can and can’t do with your penis, how you raise your , what you do in the privacy of your own home, or whether your relationship is abusive because it includes BDSM, then you should speak up.

If you’re having sex, but wouldn’t want to raise a born with extreme pain, who will only have an existence of suffering, then you should speak up.

If you believe life starts at conception but would support abortion in cases of sexual assault and incest, you should speak up.

If you believe abortion would be a viable option if someone you were with got pregnant, you should speak up.

If you say you support someone’s right to choose, even if you wouldn’t choose it yourself, you should speak up.

If you want people to speak up against the oppression of your skin color, disability, religion, age, nationality, body shape, sex, gender, or class- you should speak up.

See, the extremism of these bills makes the pro-birth/life/choice argument obsolete. The ends DO NOT justify the means. This isn’t really about supporting abortion vs. not, it is about freedom. Do you want to be free? Speak up.

Because if you’re not speaking up for others, will there be anyone left to speak up for you?

I somehow get the impression that it is not being looked at as an issue of morality. Rather it is an issue of what the Constitution states or does not state and what laws should have been passed by the legislatures regarding abortion. I was listening to some legal scholars who were liberals and they agreed that the abortion issue is not up the the Supreme Court but instead should be and should have been determined by Congress. As is quite often the case, women get stuck in the middle. Congress can hardly agree on anything.

    Yeah, the dark ages are coming back for, especially the poor women and the men,that support us.

    The not so poor can always go to an other state, to get abortion
    The poor cant effort that!
    So, we will get more and more illegal abortions and women dying from that....

    I was in shock when i heard this on the radio.
    WTH!
    How dare they!!
    Can someone shoot those old, conservative geezers! please!

    I even demonstrated for free abortion for all women!
We are, headed back to the dark ages.

    Thank you for sharing. I thought what you shared was amazing and informative. I agree 100%. I don't see men lining up for vasectomies, and I doubt I ever will. Also, These religious nut cases only care about the "babies" while they're in the womb. As soon as they become part of society, they have no intention of helping a 13-year-old child take care of a child (with healthcare and housing, food) And what about the life of the 13-year-old child? I guess that life is over as well? So sorry about the rant.

Do not apologize for ranting! We must rant and rant and rant and rant .... and vote and vote and vote and vote at every single level of government. Half measures avail us nothing.

    Amen sista!

    That's as religious as I get. Perhaps as polite as I can be on this topic as well. Confess my tongue hurts from biting it so damn hard. So here goes.

    The "Lysistrata" Treatment and forced vasectomies for all humans born with a penis age 8 and above are my loudest reoccurring thoughts of late. Of course permission from the government would be required to reverse the vasectomies on a case by proven case basis and only temporarily. No seed spreading willy-nilly.

    Of course I realize the ridiculousness of such thoughts and yet ....... the most absurd is the actual truth of what's happening right now.

    4 men, two which have their own issues with abusing women and one woman who's vote technically doesn't count cause her religion makes her subservient to her husband opinion. (Ironically hypocritically, her choice. ) These 5 Magistrates are stripping all humans born with a uterus of their right to chose what happens in and out of their uterus and for the rest of their natural lives. Legislatures mostly filled with het white cis males will make all those decisions. Hmmm. Yeah. Go figure.

    If anyone thinks the BDSM/Kink community is immune from the scope of this decision .... good luck with that. Seriously. Used to have Roe v Wade and the Casey decision (all about privacy) .... now ya don't. "The Chorus of Old Men and the Magistrate" aka the GOP aka the American Taliban won't stop til it's Gilead.

    Before anyone assumes, (as so many often do) my sexual orientation has nothing to do with my thoughts on this matter. Zilch. However, I have a uterus; still functioning regularly; dropping eggs every month. As well, I'm a survivor of both incest (he was 10 y.o.) and sexual assault (he was a college jr.) I'm grateful I didn't have to make a Roe v. Wade type of decision for either violation. Even still, I sure as hell ain't going to tell another child "she has an opportunity" and force her to carry the seed of an abuser.

    It's never pretty to reveal such things and yet ...... facts are facts.

    Lysistrata, a play, was written by Aristophanes. I went old school pre-biblical back to the Greeks with my rant references; couldn't resist. This uterus was educated too; .

    "If you think you’re free, you’re not."

    I cannot emphasize how true this statement is on so many levels. You may be free to choose that which is of little importance, such as which colored Smartie you will eat first. But when it comes to electoral systems, you are forced to choose amongst a limited choice decided for by an ideological minority. Nowhere on the ballot is the choice to choose- NONE OF THE ABOVE, and as such, can that truly be considered a democracy?

    You are not free when public education does not teach a student how to think critically, but trains them to obey an authority.

    You are not free when the main motive driving an economic system is profit/greed.

    You are not free when the average person pays more taxes than a billion dollar corporation.

    You are not free when the news media is allowed to misrepresent the truth.

    You are not free when censorship is justified over claims of misinformation.

    You are not free if you are so emotionally attached to an ideology, you react angrily to those who simply disagree with you.

    so, yes, is totally agree.
Thank you so much for your comment. I totally agree with you. The system is fucked.

Yes, it does. I often wonder why these people are pro-life but are against all the things that go with it. Like Helping a mother after a child is born with healthcare and housing , food programs, etc... They are interested in the child until it's born and then it's absolutely disposable.
