Things I want to see more of in media

  • Autistic characters using stim toys
  • Autistic characters wearing noise cancelling headphones
  • Autistic characters having accurately presented sensory overloads that aren’t portrayed as “immature” or “irrational”
  • Autistic characters who aren’t portrayed as socially inept freaks
  • Autistic characters who aren’t turned into punchlines to shitty offensive jokes
  • Positive, non-stigmatized autistic representation

The only sort of pictures you should be reblogging of Jennifer Lawrence

have unfollowed 20+ blogs on here already and i will unfollow anyone else who reblogs nude photos taken NON-CONSENSUALLY from these women.  it is sexual violation (fueled by the objectification of women) and anybody who participates that is the literal scum of the earth

The best response is this response

"A person’s a person, no matter how small." - Dr. Seuss

That quote was about American occupation of Japan post WWII, not fetuses.

Dr. Seuss was extremely pro choice and regularly donated to Planned Parenthood and sued people using this exact quote for pro life propaganda. His widow continues donating and suing pro lifers that use his words like this.

…Okay? However, does that make the statement incorrect? I have no problem removing his name from the post, but his words still ring true in this context.

They really don’t though? You cannot take the words of an extremely pro choice person about a completely different subject on your propaganda that goes directly against his beliefs and have nothing to do with the quote itself.

It’s not only disrespectful, it’s just plain silly. Nevermind that fetuses aren’t actually classified as persons, so the quote is meaningless anyways.

"A person’s a person, no matter how small." Taking that quote, all by itself with no context, still has the desired effect for this cartoon. Dr. Seuss doesn’t own the idea behind the words, they can be interpreted to each individual’s discretion provided that those words stand aline, with no context. I went to the original post and removed his name. I didn’t make it, I just agree with it. Because yes, fetuses are people, and saying anything different is like saying that, in comparison to an adult, children and toddlers aren’t people either. Just like being a baby, child, teen or adult, being a fetus or an embryo is a stage of human life. They are human. They are alive. They matter.

Still wrong

Fetuses: Not sentient, not aware, unfeeling, incapable of learning, not conscious.

Persons: Sentient, aware of ones existence, consciousness.

Infants+: Sentient, aware of their existence/the world around them, conscious.

Coma patients fyi have measurable consciousness and awareness of the world around them even while comatose, a fetus does not.

Therefore fetuses =/= persons and yes, it makes perfect logistical sense to say that a fetus i not a person where an infant, toddler, teenager or adult is.

And no, you can’t just remove his name to avoid a copyright infringement. His estate actively owns that quote, it is copyrighted you are still in violation of it (and also plagerism now since you deleted just his name). In order to not be you must remove the entire quote.

A person is a person no matter how small
BUT A FETUS IS A FETUS AND NOT A PERSON AT ALL

#this is not an exaggeration okay #children do say this #children do wonder why they can’t find themselves in the media #don’t fucking tell me it doesn’t matter #it matters so much #children NEED to see themselves represented #or else they grow up feeling inferior and not worthy

No I have to reblog this again cus I am crying right now look at the dads face

This is why my mother made it a point to show me and my sister how beautiful the black dolls were when she would take us to the toy store when we were little. I was the only kid in my kindergarden class who would draw pictures of people and actually color in the faces, which I vividly remember doing, but didn’t think anything of it at the time. Not all of them were of my parents either. Some were bible scenes (I went to a Catholic school) and the rest was just fictional people that I would make up stories for.

My mom told me that apparently it was so odd, that my teacher pointed it out with confusion during one of the routine parent/teacher meetings, and asked her and my father why I did that when none of the other kids did it.

I repeat, my kindergarden teacher looked at two black parents and asked with genuine confusion why their black daughter colored in the faces of people in her drawings.

This why representation matters. I wasn’t the only black kid in that class, but I was the only one coloring in the hands and faces of the people I drew, and my parents were questioned about it, as though it were some alien concept.

this post is amazing and I fully support it and everything it says

BUT

the scene in the gifs is from the pilot episode of agents of shield. the dad offers to buy him a superhero and the boy says “I’m okay”. you can see his lips saying it.

True.^

However I am down for the edit bc it’s true. People, kids especially, need to see themselves in media.
