1. Followers,

    It’s probably worth noting that this blog has been around for a year now. Words cannot describe the relief, benefits, and positivity this blog and my interactions with you all have brought to my life. I truly could write pages for the significance of this day, but I will spare you all. Thank you so much for sticking by, and most of all, for being true to yourself. Please remember your decisions are yours, valid, and completely okay. You are doing the right thing. Keep going, and please don’t give up if you can help it. Childfree is more than alright, and it always will be. Anyone who says otherwise is lightyears behind you. Stand by the goals and values that are true to your essence, make you grow as a person, and benefit all the world around you. <333

     

  2. "Abortion makes you the mother of a dead baby."

    protego-et-servio:

    No.  It doesn’t. 

    You agree to parenthood.

    Hence why people who agree to adopt are parents. 

    Hence why people who miscarry a wanted pregnancy are parents.

    Hence why people who get abortions of wanted pregnancies - when the pregnancy is wanted, but health complications arise - are still parents.

    In order to be a parent, you agree to be a parent.

    So, yes, you can opt out of parenthood with abortion.

    Shove off with the emotionally manipulative shit.

"I don’t have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done, and…if they’re not checked, then I’ve failed some part of my feminism or my being a woman or my worth and my value as a woman because I haven’t birthed a child. I’ve birthed a lot of things, and I feel like I’ve mothered many things. And I don’t feel like it’s fair to put that pressure on people."

    This speaks to me. Child-free and happy.

     

  5. I love how the moral of True Blood

    palewansickly:

    was that it’s better to have kids than ANYTHING ELSE YOU MIGHT WANT IN LIFE.

    And by “love” I mean, am totally fucking disgusted by. Really? REALLY? Yes, I get it, it’s true to the character. She’s uneducated and living in the south, so statistically speaking, Sookie’s going broodmare, but come ON. This is a character whose entire arc has been one of growth and expansion beyond her roots. And where do we end up? Pregnant with LITERALLY ANYONE. That’s how they presented it. Her being pregnant with ANYONE was better than following her heart.

    Just, gross. GROSS. Breeding is not the default setting for women. It’s not what you do when you don’t have a better idea. Goddammit, people. I was just disappointed by the whole thing. Oh, and Bill, you’re stupid. STUPID.

    How is FUCKING HOYT the smartest guy in town? Well, Bon Temps? I’m waiting. Let’s hear it, because you’ve got some ‘splaining to do.

    Yeah, I think so. Just a lot of pretty urgent matters came up all at once in my life, and work is also pretty hectic. 

     

  8. Blog Update

    Shit still hitting the fan. Trying to keep blog active anyway with some reblogs, but I need to hold off on using my brain power to answer important questions until things are a bit more stable. Thanks for everyone’s patience.

    The law of conservation of mass, or principle of mass conservation, states that for any system closed to all transfers of matter and energy (both of which have mass), the mass of the system must remain constant over time, as system mass cannot change quantity if it is not added or removed. Hence, the quantity of mass is “conserved” over time. The law implies that mass can neither be created nor destroyed, although it may be rearranged in space, or the entities associated with it may be changed in form, as for example when light or physical work is transformed into particles that contribute the same mass to the system as the light or work had contributed. The law implies (requires) that during any chemical reaction, nuclear reaction, or radioactive decay in an isolated system, the total mass of the reactants or starting materials must be equal to the mass of the products.
