You are a liar. Over 600 Palestinians have been killed in the space of 2 weeks - more than 25% of whom children - and the best you can think of is ‘Israel’s goals are not to kill children’?

You’re not mistaken or ignorant, you know the truth but choose to lie in order to support Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

You want Palestinians to be wiped out (yep, definitely click this link) which is why you lie about Israel’s intentional killing of Palestinian children. Anyone who’s spent even a minute watching the news or on social media especially within the past two weeks has seen how the Israeli military targets innocent civilians, hospitals and ambulances.

'Half your posts are so unfactual' - the first thing you'll notice about this blog is that it's full of links to reliable sources. Read them. 

And on that note

"An Israeli army officer who fired the entire magazine of his automatic rifle into a 13-year-old Palestinian girl and then said he would have done the same even if she had been three years old was acquitted on all charges by a military court yesterday."

“And cis is not a hate word. If cisgender people don’t like being called it, it’s because they don’t like being criticized by trans people and they’re usually hearing it in contexts of trans people explaining the myriad ways cis people are inconsiderate of them. Cis is not a slur. It wasn’t devised that way, it doesn’t usually function that way. Sure, some trans activists are hateful abusive people. Hateful abusive people come in all sizes, shapes, colors, sexual orientations, and gender orientations. But the word “cis” is at its core simply descriptive and needs to catch on for the reasons I enumerated before. While the “Die Cis Scum!” meme is unfortunate, there’s hardly the rash of murders of cis people by trans people that there is by cis people of trans people. The far more routine murders and verbal abuse of trans people by cis people who call them “trannies” is what makes “tranny” a word associated with hatred and violence. Cis is for the most part just a helpful distinction concept. It’s not uniquely or predominantly a slur. If you’re feeling the sting of always hearing cis in critical contexts, it’s better to start listening to all the ways trans people are frustrated and think of what (usually incredibly minimal) changes you could make to simply accommodate their frustrations and make their lives exponentially easier. That’s more productive than whining that they have “heaven forfend!” devised a word to describe you that isn’t “normal”.”

Why Do We Need Labels Like Gay, Bi, Trans and Cis?

Last one. I especially like this because it acknowledges that there are asshats who make fairly awful and stupid threats attached to the “cis” label and also that they’re hardly a dangerous multitude in the way that transphobes are.

wear your armor

whether it’s makeup, a band tshirt, your fandom pins, tattoos, jewelry, your favorite ripped pair of jeans, or something no one else can touch or see like your favorite song repeating like a mantra in your head, the sound of your own heartbeat, or the knowledge that you were brave enough to get out of bed today when everything else inside you said “no”

wear your armor and kick ass

I had a patient in the clinic who really did not want an abortion but who had no resources to cover the costs of prenatal care or childbirth. She was single and without insurance coverage but made just enough money to be ineligible for state assistance. She already had outstanding bills at the hospital and with the local ob-gyn practice. No doctor would see her without payment up front.

We were willing to do the abortion for a reduced rate or for free if necessary. But she really didn’t want an abortion. Once I understood her situation, I went to the phone and called the local ‘crisis pregnancy center.’

"Hello, this is Dr. Wicklund."

Dead silence. I might as well have said I was Satan.

"Hello?" I said again. "This is Dr. Wicklund."

"Hello," very tentatively, followed by another long silence.

"I need help with a patient," I said. She came to me for an abortion, but really doesn’t want one. What she really needs is someone to do her prenatal care and birth for free."

"What do you expect us to do?"

I let that hang for a minute.

This Common Secret, Susan Wicklund

Crisis Pregnancy Centers often disguise themselves as medical facilities, with advertisements offering “help” with an unplanned pregnancy. Their main goal is to keep the pregnant person from having an abortion at all costs. Usually, all they’ll give you is a free pregnancy test, some baby clothes, and maybe a box of diapers.

The patient referred to in the quote was given free prenatal care and did not have to pay the financial cost of childbirth by a local anti-choice doctor. She would often stop by Dr. Wicklund’s office to let her know how she was doing:

"He always moans and groans about being tricked into [doing this]," she says. "Then he goes off on these tirades against abortion."
