tw: pregnancy, abortion, menstruation

in case you don’t know what’s happening in Poland right now: the government wants to make it law that since the very connection of the sperm and egg cell - before the embryo starts to develop - the cells are human life and have to be protected until natural death, and abortion would be completely banned.

this means, for example, that pregnancies developing outside the uterus, that kill both the parent and the child, cannot be aborted. victims of sexual violence have to raise children of their abusers. abortions in situations without a serious life threat, or after consensual sex were already prohibited before, this law erases all possibility of a legal abortion.

more than that, miscarriages would be investigated, and a parent who didn’t “care enough” for their pregnancy could be put in prison for ‘unintended murder’.

this is because our current ‘government’ - dictatorship - the PiS(Law and Justice) party, and its leaders claim that they will not go against the will of the roman catholic church, and we know the views of the most conservative parts of that church. the laws are being discussed in the presence of church officials. in a country that’s not supposed to be a religious state.

but what needs to spread, too, is the reaction of the people. almost everyone - from cis straight women through LGBTQIA people to straight catholic men and people who are normally ‘pro-life’ are protesting. views stopped mattering to the large majority.

thousands of people across the entire country have been protesting the law, and this is not where this ends. 

various major politicians have made a point of solidarizing against the law, publishing pictures from demonstrations on their social media, and giving interviews where they speak out against the oppression. this is not a matter that’s being pushed to the side - it’s one of the main principles of anyone who cares about the country and its people.

what’s more, there are events with thousands of people taking part which assume more alternative methods of protesting. examples:

that’s not the end of it. there are dozens of actions being taken against the oppressive law, and not much of it is being spoken about by the foreign media. this has to be spread and told about, so that Poland is not just seen as the black sheep for its government, its largely conservative population and its problems, but also for the brilliant people who will rise up when oppression becomes too much.


TLDR:

  • Polish government wants to introduce a law based on church laws that treats every abortion and most miscarriages as murder
  • Thousands, even conservative men, are protesting the law
  • Huge protests are happening and important figures are solidarizing with people against the introduction of the law
  • Actions being taken include sending hangers straight to the prime minister, and calling/emailing her with intimate details about people’s fertility and sexual lives

Everything I have is an illusion that I can pass
Everything I have is an illusion that I can do it.
Everything I have is an illusion that I can pass.
Everything I have is an illusion that I can do it.

I had my own notes, but secretly Typ had borrowed them.
What do I do? How I can pass now? How can I pass now?
I was supposed to go to A-zero, but they have just closed the xerox place.
What do I do without the copy place? How can I pass without the xerox?

Everything I have is an illusion that I can pass
Everything I have is an illusion that I can do it.
Everything I have is an illusion that I can pass.
Everything I have is an illusion that I can do it.

I had Tomek’s notebook, but he took it back finally
What do i do without his notebook? How can I pass without the notebook?
I had Pi’em’s scripts, but f*** there is nothing in it
What do I do without the script? How can i pass without the script?

Everything I have is an illusion that I can pass
Everything I have is an illusion that I can do it.
Everything I have is an illusion that I can pass.
Everything I have is an illusion that I can do it.

I had a little knowledge in my head, but i got drunk with my friends
what do I do without the knowledge I had? How can I pass without the knowledge?
I had a crib in my pocket, but it disappeared under my chair
What do I do without the crib? How can I pass without the crib?

Everything I have is an illusion that I can pass
Everything I have is an illusion that I can do it.
Everything I have is an illusion that I can pass.
Everything I have is an illusion that I can do it.

Rise And Fall

6x10 reaction fic

He sees Dalton again in a dream. Wispy and opaque and in flashes of nonsense the way dreams are: His shoes clacking on the polished floors. Some unidentifiable student handing him a cloth-covered book in the library. He sits at a handsome heavy oak table, puts his feet up and realizes he can’t read the title. It’s blurry, gibberish. Then not even there at all.

He’s in biology, stacking sheet music, watching dust motes swirl and quiver in a beam of sunlight coming from a window he can’t see.

He’s in his dorm waiting to shower. He’s in someone else’s room, wearing a red and white McKinley Titan’s gym T-shirt.

He’s on the staircase, floating down as if he were flying with the skylight spinning above, spiraling down and down and down. Kurt is there. He holds out his hand. He smiles. That’s when the fire starts.

Someone is telling him to go, run, go. It’s his own voice. But he can’t. He can’t just leave his kids and leave Dalton, it’s safe there, they need it, they need him. He can put out the fire, he can. If he could just stop panicking for a second.
