I will never tell my children that if a boy picks on them it means he likes them. I will teach my children that “Anyone who cares about you or loves you would never dream of hurting you. They would want to protect and nurture you.” End rape culture, stop nurturing abusive relationships, by teaching your kids differently.

holy shit i love this quote
I vote we stop using the term “pro-life” and change to “pro-birth”, and every time someone asks “What does that mean?”, you can explain this and the other racialized, classist, misogynist, body policing, rape culture reinforcing bullshit behind “pro-life” dogma.
This is why I also love the term “anti-choice” – you aren’t pro-life, you’re anti me having the choice of whether or not I will be pregnant. Much of today’s GOP is pro-life ‘til the birth canal ends.
They can’t stand when you point out this contradiction and I LOVE ruining their day by doing it.
