“I am no science experiment” - model Josephine Skriver speaks out on behalf of IVF babies and children of LGBT parents

We commend model Josephine Skriver for standing up and speaking out on behalf of IVF babies and children of LGBT parents! In “Fully Human,” she writes:

“Some of my favorite memories in my life don’t involve much. Being held by parents and adored by them was always enough. I didn’t care or judge my parents by their sexual orientation, the color of their skin, or what they believed in. I didn’t look at my parents and see gay or straight - I saw passion and dedication. All I knew is that they loved me, and I loved them. Most importantly, I could not be more grateful. If anything, I will always admire my parents for not allowing their sexual orientation and all of the legal and social walls to prevent them from following their heart and dreams. 

The two of them, through the miracle of IVF, gave me a chance to live, to find a path, and to create a story of my own. Now, I intend to use one of the storybook’s pages to stand up for everyone out there who feels alone and scared, or are constantly told that they are in any way less than another human on this earth. I am here to remind you that you are equal - you are not a statistic nor a science experiment. You are strong. You are beautiful. And you are as real as anyone else. As humans, we are simply who we are and what we feel.”

anonymous asked:

What's that scar on your stomach from? No offense intended, just curious.

Sokay! I had a C-section no just kidding I had a bowel obstruction lmao

Meaning my intestinal track like twisted….. they needed to go in and take out a chunk, was the most painful thing I experienced + was hospitalized for a month + couldn’t walk for a month/comfortably run for half a year andddd It was an extremely bad time!!!

I have a lot of mental/emotional baggage that I got from that experience, I am still trying very hard to learn from it and make myself better. Honestly I could write a book on it

I also have a couple pacemaker scars. I am scarred all over. :’’’’’’’’’’’D Just collecting them like Pokemons…………

walkingthroughthepages asked:

If you like Drarry, have you read They That Love Beyond The World by Ashita polar on fanfiction yet? It's tragic and kinda really angst, but it's SO BEAUTIFUL!

No, I haven’t. I tend to avoid any fanfic described as ‘tragic’ like the plague. Angst, I can deal with. Cliched reasons for angst, all the better. But tragic? Nooo thank you I will avoid the tears and broken sobbing at two am in the morning in the shower and why yes I am speaking from experience.

Since you gave me such a rec, here’s one (two) for you: Building With Worn Out Tools by lomonaaeren or Must Love Quidditch by dracosoftie
