I second this and add
"You see, death doesn’t happen to you Lydia. It happens to everyone around you, okay? To all the people left standing at your funeral. Trying to figure out how to live the rest of their lives now, without you in it."
protip if a nerd dude tries to give you a pop quiz about the fandom on your shirt/bag/cosplay by asking you to answer a banal and obscure trivia question to prove you’re a Real Gamer, turn the question back on him. ask him about the thematic implications that bit of trivia has…
I have no idea what half these words mean. Why is a simple question a problem in the first place? There are gamergurls and gamers that happen to be girls. We want to find out which you are. That’s all.
that’s… exactly the problem… ur assumption that it’s somehow a necessity to harass/accuse girls of being Fake just because they happen to like a thing, while in reality doing that serves literally no purpose outside of preforming a great theatrical shitshow of misogynistic self-obsession. the appropriate questions to ask a girl who displays her like for whatever ”nerdy” fanfic would be the same ones you’d ask anyone else - questions like “oh who’s you’re favorite character/what do you like about it/etc” that engage her interest rather than questioning it on the sole basis of her gender
this isnt hard
"i have no idea what half these words mean" oh lawd
Listen here, you little shit…

Young women are having difficulty accessing tubal ligation, despite it being a relatively safe (death rate is 1-2 per 100,000) and elective surgery.
There is a waiting period of 30 days for women seeking tubal ligation, yet no waiting period for men seeking vasectomies.
Young women are often discriminated against when seeking sterilization. Many doctors ask offensive questions (“What if you met a billionaire who wanted to have kids with you?”), state categorically that their patients are too young to consider the surgery, and generally act as though, as one woman who tried unsuccessfully to be sterilized at the age of 21 in the U.K. put it, ”just because I was a woman, I’d reach a point where an urge to breed would overcome all rational thought.” (Perhaps unsurprisingly, that woman’s 25-year-old husband faced no such presumptions when he asked his doctor for a vasectomy. The procedure was quickly approved.)
Say that at 18 I slap down enough money so I could have my whole body covered head-to-toe in tattoos, piercings all over myself, a mountain of cigarettes, plastic surgery, and plan to have like 20 babies… but if I try at all to safely make it impossible for me to breed for the sake of my health suddenly its like WOAH THERE SLOW DOWN MISSY YOU’RE NOT READY FOR THIS KIND OF COMMITMENT YET
I have stage III Endometriosis, which means I have to get my uterus removed because I literally have terrible cramps ALL THE TIME and not just when I’m on my period. Now, I’ve always said I don’t want any children for personal reasons and I don’t need my uterus, really. I am not worried about that surgery and I don’t feel any kind of nostalgia over an organ I won’t ever use.
The thing is, my doctor is a ‘man’. This ‘man’ told me I had to get pregnant right now before it’s too late. I told him I didn’t want to get pregnant and explained the multiple reasons but what, do you ask, did my doctor have to say about this? 'Well, better have a kid now because just imagine how depressing it must be being a thirty-something woman without children and a husband?'
I was diagnosed a year ago. I should have gone through surgery six months ago and I still can’t find a doctor that will perform the surgery without trying to force me to have children first. Basically, if you’re a woman you don’t have a say in what can and cannot be done to your body without a shitload of people getting in the way AND I’M FUCKING SICK OF IT.
I’ve been battling with the NHS for years over this. The funny (?!) thing is that my psychiatrist wanted me to take Lithium for my bipolar disorder, and one of the possible side effects is INFERTILITY. But will they let me get my tubes tied? NO. Go figure.
My husband had a vasectomy at 20 years old. No questions if we already had children, no “You’lll want kids later”. Just “Okay this is your appointment time.” Why is it any different than a woman wanting a tubal? Oh yeah, he’s a man.
Oh yeah, it’s because a vasectomy is reversible while hysterectomies are almost impossible to reverse. Seriously people. It’s not “because he’s a man and I’m a woman”. Lamest call for sexism I’ve heard today.
Jesus fucking Christ. Hysterectomies are not “almost impossible to reverse.” Hysterectomies are entirely impossible to reverse, which you would know if you had any idea what a hysterectomy was (I’ll give you a hint: it’s the complete removal of the uterus). People don’t just remove their uteri because they don’t want any more kids; hysterectomies can lead to later health problems in humans and are only recommended to treat disease. People born with vaginas get tubal ligations when they want to get “fixed.” And whooooa holy fucking shit guess what? A tubal ligation is not only just as easy (or more like just as difficult) to reverse as a vasectomy, people who have tubal ligations also have the option of in vitro fertilization instead of reversal if they decide later they want to be pregnant.
Stop trying to argue about vaginas/uteri/tubes when you have no idea how they work or how their medical treatment works.
0/10 you only proved yourself wrong. Lamest attempt at anti-feminist “logic” I’ve heard in my entire life.
Greatest thing ever
Things like this remind me how much I love poetry slams.
I fucking love it
this is how you dad.
