"Muggleborns in Hogwarts starting a film club and introducing Purebloods to any number of Teen romantic comedies"

No.

What Muggleborns should do is start a film club and make Purebloods watch something that will scare the shit out of them. Make them watch Alien. Silence of the Lambs. Final Destination. Saw.

Show a them marathon of the best of Muggle horror and watch their eyes widen and faces go pale as they realize just how fucked up Muggles are.

STOP RIGHT THERE!

You’re under arrest for being such a cutie. Oh oops it seems I have forgotten my handcuffs I guess I’ll just have to hold your hand. You have the right to remain silent. Or you can talk. I like it when you talk. Okay now come with me please.

all this SPN cast-related wank on my dash when everyone was so pumped for comic con like two days ago

Johnnie Phelps, a woman sergeant in the army, thought, “There was a tolerance for lesbianism if they needed you. The battalion I was in was probably about ninety-seven percent lesbian.”
Sergeant Phelps worked for General Eisenhower. Four decades after Eisenhower had defeated the Axis powers, Phelps recalled an extraordinary event. One day, the general told her, “I’m giving you an order to ferret those lesbians out. We’re going to get rid of them.”
“I looked at him and then I looked at his secretary who was standing next to me, and I said, ‘Well, sir, if the general pleases, sir, I’ll be happy to do this investigation for you. But you have to know that the first name on the list will be mine.’ “
“And he was kind of taken aback a bit. And then this women standing next to me said, ‘Sir, if the General pleases, you must be aware that Sergeant Phelp’s name may be second, but mine will be first.”
“Then I looked at him, and said, ‘Sir, you’re right. They’re lesbians in the WAC battalion. And if the general is prepared to replace all the file clerks, all the section commanders, all the drivers-every woman in the WAC detachment-and there were about nine hundred and eighty something of us-then I’ll be happy to make that list. But I think the general should be aware that among those women are the most highly decorated women in the war. There have been no cases of illegal pregnancy. There have been no cases of AWOL. There have been no cases of misconduct. And as a matter of fact, every six months since we’ve been here, the general has awarded us a commendation for meritorious conduct.”
“And he said, ‘Forget the order.’”

Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8

A brilliant metaphor

My mother views pregnancy as beautiful since she loved her own experience. She also worked as a pre-natal nurse and witnessed all the uglyness of pregnancy. She still thinks it's a beautiful thing, but she knows it can get ugly on a whim. She never knew about pro-life and pro-choice before I told her. She's horrified at the thought of banning abortion. My mother, who saved babies for over 25 years, is pro-choice.

It’s amazing how many people in the medical profession are pro-choice.

I love the little lists these pro-lifers make, compiling pro-life doctors. There’s like…what, four or five hundred on there? Not sure. Out of how many doctors in the country? Hah.

I have spoken to a family friend who happens to be a doctor. He told me that he believes many medical professionals to be pro-choice because they have seen what can go wrong, and believe the choice is up to the person dealing with the situation. He obviously cannot speak for everyone. But I still thought it was a valid opinion.

I see a lot of pro-lifers talking about how you should never go to an OB/GYN who is not pro-life. Which is just nuts to me. Like somehow a pro-choice doctor will value a patient less than a pro-life one. I actually believe the reverse - I think the pro-life doctor will care more about the fetus, no matter what state its in, than the patient. 

Pregnancy is what YOU make it. If it’s beautiful to you, fantastic. If it’s scary, that’s just as valid. No telling people how to feel just because you feel that way.

Your mom sounds awesome.

I hope to eventually become a doctor, and I am leaning towards OBGYN or neonatologist. If I am an OBGYN, I am well within my rights to refuse to perform an abortion. (Abortion and miscarriage are NOT the same thing). However, it is not my place as a professional to act with my personal beliefs in mind. If a patient wants an abortion, they will have to go somewhere else to get one but I will not go by the term “pro-life doctor”. I am pro-life, but as a doctor, my beliefs are not an aspect of patient care.

But hopefully by that time, abortion will be much more rare than it is now:)

Here’s the thing.

If an OB/GYN does not wish to perform an abortion, I am not about to try and force them. I think it is terrible decision making to go into a field knowing full-well that you’ll be put in that situation, but that is, of course, your call.

The problem I have is not necessarily that an OB/GYN would refuse to perform an abortion; the problem I have is the methods by which a pro-life OB/GYN may convince a woman to carry out a dangerous pregnancy because they do not approve of an abortion.

I think as a professional, it is the OBGYN’s job to offer the woman all of her legal options and let her take it from there.

It is terribly refreshing to see a pro-lifer acknowledge the importance of unbiased medical counseling. However, please understand that you are representing the VERY FEW AND FAR BETWEEN.

There are many, many pro-life individuals who would do anything to prevent a woman from terminating her pregnancy. This gets particularly dangerous in the medical field, as many pregnant people do not have the medical expertise to know whether their pro-life doctor is being fully honest with their possibly dangerous pregnancy. There have been situations like this, and people have died as a result.

If every pro-life OB/GYN were open to unbiased medical counseling, and able to provide a referral should the pregnant person in question want an abortion, I’d be just dandy. Unfortunately, I do not think this is a reality; nor do I think it ever will be.

Could you direct me to the sources of when women died or almost died from biased medical care? Thank you!

The most obvious one was the case of Savita Halappanavar. She died due to the pro-life views of both the country and her medical professionals.

I would also like to highlight another reblog that I’m confident you saw already:

Bear in mind that Oklahoma, (and possibly other states) has passed laws that make it legal for a doctor or other health professional to LIE to a woman if they fear she will have an abortion.  For example, a doctor can say the fetus is perfectly normal when he knows it will be born with defects, or lie and say the defect is easily treatable when they know it is profoundly life-changing or lethal.  They can lie to a woman about the effects to her body and her life if the pregnancy is continued. This law was REQUESTED by pro-life doctor, who wanted to avoid the professional and legal consequences of putting their own ideology above the health, life, and interests of their patient.

I should have brought this  up myself but it slipped my mind. This is very true and very scary - medical professionals are now legally permitted to lie to their patients if they so choose. This is a scary advantage for pro-life OB/GYNs.

If I was a woman in Oklahoma, I would remove my own uterus before I would ever get pregnant there. The thought that a doctor can essentially murder me at will by lying about the conditions of my pregnancy, and the legislature decided that it was legal is just mind blowing. The doctor who suggested it in the first place is morally and ethically reprehensible and should have had their license taken away immediately. They swore and oath and then set out to create ways to go against that oath and make it okay to lie and deceive patients at will. That isn’t practicing medicine, that’s practicing deceit and victimization.


People automatically give a certain level of trust to a doctor the same way students place their trust in a teacher. It’s no better than teachers who abuse their authority to take advantage of young students so they can engage in illicit sexual activities with them.  I’d bet that if you dig into this ‘doctors’ past, they have a history that goes way back of victimizing people in numerous other ways too. Anybody who would go so far to twist things around in order to accomplish something this awful is a practiced liar, con artist, and sociopath.
