patrickandmarcus: As a man, I have no problem with women generalizing men as rapists, misogynists, yada yada. Because I’ve seen men do some vile shit and had to stop even viler shit from happening. This is from the 3rd grade to now. Waayyy out of line touching, sick name-calling, physical…

rabbleprochoice: stfuprolife: CHECK IT HERE. I’ve seen this new statistic going around tumblr and while the number of people who are pro-choice really IS higher than 41% like STFU Pro-Life has pointed out, I just want to reiterate that the amount of people who are pro-life or pro-choice doesn’t matter. Even if pro-lifers were the majority (which they aren’t) it doesn’t matter. The opinions...

He’s a Christian from Birmingham, Ala., who initially refused to even consider the procedure. But about halfway into his 20-year career, he changed his mind. Now, he’s one of those rare doctors who is willing to push the limits and provide abortions at 24 weeks of pregnancy. That...
Summer Storms and Existential Moments
Nothing like driving into a summer storm with the moon still riding above you, racing you to the clouds and the lightning with the windows down, music blasting, steam rising from hot pavement and the taste of rain on your tongue.
