Friendly reminder ԅ(≖‿≖ԅ) that if you don’t sleep with someone for the sole reason that they’re HIV positive then you ARE being discriminatory towards a human being with a disease and you’re scum of the earth ｡◕‿◕｡ It’s basically as bad as saying you couldn’t love somebody with cancer. Respect people’s feelings. (◕‿◕✿)
this is the best photo ive ever seen
Now try to explain to me with facts why a living human being is not a person.
Fetuses are only person’s when it’s “convenient” for your arguments, but when pro-lifers are faced with a lawsuit, all of a sudden fetuses aren’t persons, I wonder why that is? /sarcasm.
Fetuses are potential persons, but they are not people, they are not autonomous, they are not sentient, and they do not have personhood, which is granted at birth, which grants you rights as a person. Fetuses cannot be legally given rights as they are intrusive violations of bodily autonomy, and when you infringe on someone else’ rights, you get yours taken away.
“A person is recognized by law as such, not because he is human, but because rights and duties are ascribed to him. The person is the legal subject or substance of which the rights and duties are attributes. An individual human being considered to be having such attributes is what lawyers call a “natural person.”” [x] - Paige
Reblogging for that first link, holy shit the hypocrisy is mind-boggling.
Los Angeles police officers tampered with voice recording equipment in dozens of patrol cars in an effort to avoid being monitored while on duty
An inspection by Los Angeles Police Department investigators found about half of the estimated 80 cars in one South L.A. patrol division were missing antennas, which help capture what officers say in the field. The antennas in at least 10 more cars in nearby divisions had also been removed.
“LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and other top officials learned of the problem last summer but chose not to investigate which officers were responsible.”
"Nope", the anime.
Based on that hilarious text post.
OMG. This is officially my favorite thing on the entire internet today.
I’m not even really a big fan of anime. But I would definitely read this! Such a great concept!
