Jon Stewart and Matt Taibbi discuss the different treatment afforded to ‘street’ based drug users and white-collar criminals profiting from the drug trade.
I am a Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust. 1/3 of my generation is gone and I will not turn my back on this tragedy. I have taken up my cross and joined the front lines of the Abortion Wars.
I will mourn the lost of 56+ million babies, I will grieve over the death of baby Isaiah, I will fight for the inherent right to life, for women to stop being treated as sex objects and for the post-abortive mothers and fathers who suffer in silence, and lastly pray for the end of abortion.
"I am a Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust.”
Are you a Jew, homosexual, disabled person, Roma, Jehovah’s Witness, born into 1940 Germany? No? Then you are not a survivor of the Holocaust.
"1/3 of my generation is gone and I will not turn my back on this tragedy."
Yeah, and one third of ‘your generation’ lives in poverty, is hungry, needs medical care, is being abused, and needs support yet you weep over the ‘injustice’ of abortion.
"I have taken up my cross and joined the front lines of the Abortion Wars."
You are not Jesus. You are not a hero. You are a person sitting behind a little screen crying over some fertilized eggs.
"I will mourn the lost of 56+ million babies,"
Mourn the loss of the BILLIONS of babies who will die from hunger. Or who will die TONIGHT because of lack of health services. Mourn the loss of the MILLIONS of little girls who will die by suicide, in childbirth, or by the hands of their husbands because they are child-brides. Fetuses do not need you, real, living little kids need you.
"I will grieve over the death of baby Isaiah, I will fight for the inherent right to life,"
Sorry to break it to ya, but there isn’t an ‘inherent right to life.’ If there was, war, poverty, lack of healthcare, and the death penalty wouldn’t be around.
"for women to stop being treated as sex objects"
The first step of this is to stop seeing us as objects to carry a pregnancy. If we don’t want to be pregnant, we don’t want to be fucking pregnant and there is NOTHING you can say that will stop that.
"and for the post-abortive mothers and fathers who suffer in silence,"
Or you can just support them, no need to ‘fight’ anyone. People who regret their abortion need, first and foremost, people like you to shut the fuck up about ‘abortion is evil!’ ‘abortion kills a baby!’ because THAT is what causes the stigma. THAT makes people suffer. Second, they need people who will LISTEN without judgement. They need people who will SUPPORT how they feel, even if they are HAPPY about their abortion.
"and lastly pray for the end of abortion."
Good. Keep praying. Because everyone knows praying gets shit done.
If you don’t like abortions, don’t have one.
I just saw a post talking about how steampunk is a circlejerk for “classy friendzone dudes” who want to wax nostalgic for the days when it was even cooler to be a cishet white dude. As someone who really enjoys steampunk, I was heartbroken when I came to the realization of how true this is.
I think steampunk needs to put a bit more emphasis on the whole “punk” aspect.
And I don’t mean like leather studded jackets and 80s rock music (although those are cool too).
I mean acknowledging as cool as the Victorian aesthetic and stuff is, the Victorian era sucked for A LOT OF PEOPLE.
Colonialism, racism, sexism, classism, ableism, all that nasty ass shit was running rampant during this time period.
As much as I love pulp adventure and airships and corsets and top hats and goggles, if that’s all you see in the 1800s and early 1900s you need to do a bit more research.
The “punk” suffix to steampunk is purely in response to cyberpunk, a genre that deals with a technologically advanced society built on oppression and the underground movement meant to rise against it.
Now, tell me, why in the fuck is science fiction based in the Victorian era, one of the most oppressive eras in human history, mostly centered around white nobles in corsets and top hats flying about in airships?
If anything, I think steampunk should be MORE about oppression and underground movements and stuff than cyberpunk.
I want steampunk stories about queer people, people of color, disabled people, and other marginalized groups having their own adventures. Whether they’re grand airship rebellions against imperialists fucks, or just struggles with day to day discrimination from the folks in your hometown.
Like I said earlier, the “punk” suffix has no real meaning in the original coinage. But, we could give it meaning, and therefore, raise this really cool yet problematic genre to its full potential.

Did you know? Prom is coming up! And you have a right to express your gender identity. Your school may be violating the law if it doesn’t allow a female student to wear a tuxedo or a male student to wear a dress.
