As we all know, only men can get Mpreggers. That’s why I left all contraception to my boyfriend in my last relationship even though I was certain I never wanted kids and knew that he did, and even though I did insist on having the exact kind of sex that can lead to Mpregnancy. He said he was on the Mpill, so that ought to be alright, right?

I know the only completely reliable form of contraception is to avoid that particular kind of sex, but you know... leaving my deposit in his uterass was enjoyable, so I thought what the heck.

I could have chosen to get my tubes tied – with vasectomies there is only a 0.025% chance of failure – but I couldn't be bothered. And condoms weren’t an option because they’re such a mood killer.

After I left my boyfriend, we haven’t had much contact, so in principle my ex could have had a kid by me without my knowing. For a while I thought that I would have no right to complain even if he did, because I was of the mistaken impression that I had to be responsible for my own actions. It is only now, years later, that I realise - thanks to the good folks commenting on this post- that in all this time, I may unknowingly have been the victim of egregious abuse!

If my ex was indeed knocked up by me without my consent, I can totally sue him and take the kid away from him, because no one should be allowed to be a parent if they’re abusive enough to keep someone’s gunk deposit against their will!

So what if I passed on a lot of contraceptive options myself?
So what if he takes care of the whole gestation process?
So what if I don’t have to spend time with the offspring?

I still have a right to decide that I don’t want to be a biological mother, goddammit, AND that I want to have risky sex anyway, AND that I want to leave contraception to my partner. That is my right as a woman!

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] fanficrants , for bringing it to my attention that I don’t have to put up with those masculine wiles that men always come up with to trap women.

PS: I bet he totally abused me by having my kid while I was on skiing holiday! Wouldn’t that be just like a man?

Amnesty International warns that this year's Baltic Pride march, which is scheduled to take place on 8 May in Vilnius, Lithuania, is in danger of cancellation because of massive homophobic opposition. Yesterday the interim attorney general got the city's administrative court to temporarily suspend the march on public security grounds.

We really haven't come very far at all, have we?

They killed Aaron Hall. I just found out yesterday and spent a sleepless night in fury. Have you heard about this? So a man, a father, beloved by his family and friends, had to die horribly because a couple of 'nough-saids apparently failed their potty-training - or whatever it is that went wrong. Something obviously did. And not just with them: there are actually people out there defending their actions! Because the murderers thought Aaron Hall might be gay. Oh, well, that makes it all right, then!

Vesper Holly has described the case on wordspress here.

We've seen similar unbelievable atrocities before. The Abu Ghraib photos of the guards' sexual assaults on helpless prisoners - suspects who were not even convicted of any crime - and the real smack on the head was that the perpetrators themselves proudly provided the documentation! That always reminds me of cheering lynch mobs. And of the unspeakable genocides we know are always taking place somewhere on this godforsaken globe.

And now the murder of Aaron Hall. These... people? - tortured a man to death over the course of so many hours I cannot possibly bear to think about it. If they had done that to an insect, I would say they were certifiable. If they'd done it to a dog, I'd never let them out of the asylum. They did it to a human being. What kind of a creature beats another human being to death - someone who never hurt them or anyone - and then celebrates? What they did to an innocent man would not have been justifiable even if they'd done it to Hitler. Because it says so much more about the person doing the torturing than about the person being tortured. Sane people just aren't capable of that.

Honestly, I was hoping that this particular sort of thing didn't happen anymore. I know there is always hate crime in this world, but I really didn't expect it to be something any so-called "normal" people would half-way condone! Not now. In 2007.

I really didn't expect people making comments like: "I would have beat him up but not killed him. Even though it would be nice to kill him, it would be wrong." WOOOT??? Listen here, fuckwad: What other people do in their personal lives is None. of your. business. If they're not hurting anyone, you had better not be hurting them. Shit-for-brains, bigoted pile of worthless dung.

And I cannot begin to describe how appalled I am that it's even slightly possible that a so-called "gay panic" defense might get these murderers a shorter sentence.

I wonder what would happen if I - accidentally - happened to bludgeon all these UNBELIEVABLE FUCKNECKS and then - just as accidentally, of course - happened to drop them in the deep fat frier, shouting "GANGING UP ON SOMEONE WHO CAN'T DEFEND THEMSELVES DOES NOT ADD INCHES TO YOUR PRICK" - and then pleaded "homophobe panic"? I simply cannot control myself when I meet homophobes, Your Honour. I go into a panic. Yeah well, the state of panic lasts for days while I slowly but surely take their lives...

The thing is, I could never do that. Not that they don't deserve it. But unlike these filthy bigoted scumfucks, I am incapable of harming someone, unless I truly fear for my own life or the life of someone else. I thought that was the natural way to be. But that's just me. And my kind.

It is times like these I wish stupidity was painful. That would be true justice. Those people would have not even lived to kill Aaron Hall. They would have died in excruciating spasms. Instead, they are alive, and the world has just one more fatherless girl.

God - you sure have forsaken me and my kind. Guess what? Right back atya.
