please reblog the fuck out of this

What in the actual fuck.

WHAT THE FUCK

… what the— is this legit!?

Yeah it is. The phrase “three standard deviations below the mean” is the common reason for removing a male fallus and assigning the baby a female gender.
If you think about it, this actually sums up, pretty well, our society.

It physically hurt my stomach to see this.

Same >_< I’ve reblogged this before but it needs more publicity so I’m doing it again.

Unfortunately, this is nothing new and is still used today. ~Mod A

can someone explain this to me in Lehman’s terms pleSe? im confused and don’t know why everyone’s losing their shit because i don’t really understand the diagram

Okay, so there’s a wide variety of genitals out there. Here is a very simplistic chart of a spectrum genitals can fall on: 

Basically the clitoris and the penis are the exact same thing, very similar anatomy. Doctors will define it as a clitoris or penis depending on 1. if it has a urethra going through it and 2. it’s size. The diagram is the one they use to decide if they want to call the baby a girl or boy or intersex. Many babies are put through genital surgeries (sometimes without the parent’s knowledge or permission) to make them look more like a penis or more like a vulva which can cause many health problems as it is a surgery, or other problems related to being assigned a gender. Any kind of surgery that isn’t necessary for health should not be performed on babies because they cannot consent.

AND THIS IS WHAT WE MEAN WHEN WE SAY SEX IS A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT!

Justice for animals but not for humans?
When animals are mistreated or killed, there is moral outcry and yet we remain deathly silent while millions of preborn children are aborted?

1. When animals are mistreated or killed you hear about it only if it was a pet animal. Farm animals are mistreated and killed regularly, no one makes a peep generally speaking. Or did you forget that you have to kill the animal before you eat it?
2. An animal is (most likely)sentient, aware, autonomous and capable of suffering. A fetus is not.
3. An animal is not using another body without consent. A fetus is.

Rainforests -Not infringing on peoples bodily autonomy, provide habitat to countless species, many undiscovered, produce oxygen for all living things to breathe, hold numerous things that could potentially be used to cure untold numbers of diseases.
Whales - Endangers species because of human interference, not infringing on peoples bodily autonomy, are in fact sentient and form closer family units than humans do
Trees - Not infringing on peoples bodily autonomy, produce oxygen for all living things, provide habitat, shelter and food to numerous species
Bald Eagles - Not infringing on peoples bodily autonomy, endangered species because of human interference
Fetuses - Actively infringing on peoples bodily autonomy, not endangered, not sentient, unaware, can’t feel pain, cannot suffer, doesn’t actually do much for anyone, can kill the person they are inside of!
Pregnant people - Not infringing on peoples bodily autonomy, are people, can think and feel and suffer, sentient, probably does a lot of stuff, has the right to the ownership of their body.

You… do realize pro choicers don’t think the fetus is dead usually do you? Like we are aware that it’s alive but I mean pro lifers love to ignore us so here it is again:
PRO CHOICERS KNOW THE FETUS IS ALIVE AND HAS LIVING CELLS. That isn’t our argument though so if y’all could start paying attention to what we’re ACTUALLY saying instead of straw manning all the time, that would be lovely.
What our real argument is, in case you missed it the last five billion times pro choicers said it: No one has the right to use anyone’s body without that persons continuous consent. The uterus is the pregnant persons organ and part of their body. Therefor a fetus requires the pregnant persons consent to remain inside the pregnant persons body.
FYI that single cell on Mars? Shot in the dark here, but I am willing to bet it isn’t using a persons body without consent.

today I learned that if you want to slash someone’s tires, don’t slash all four; only slash three because if you slash all four their insurance will pay for it but if you only slash three they have to pay for it all out of pocket
