“Dude, you’re so nervous – it’s hilarious!”

Shut up, Ben!”

“Aw, c'mon, Dean, don’t be pissed.”

Ben laughs loudly while watching Dean changing his outfit for the seventh time. His friend-slash-surrogate-Dad throws him a sharp glance and grits his teeth.

“Shouldn’t you be at home with your mother? And, you know, not be here!”

“Mom doesn’t expect me back for a few hours. I told her we would watch a movie together, like we always do. How could I’ve known you’d have a date tonight?”

It’s true, normally they hang out together, spend some “quality man time” like Dean always uses to call it (and Ben rolls his eyes at the term every single time) and at the end of the day they watch a movie with a lot of explosions and car chases.

Ben always enjoys those days immensely. When Dean and his Mom broke up all these years ago Ben had been devastated, convinced he would never see Dean again. At least it happened with the guys before, so why should it be different with Dean? But Winchester-men “don’t leave family behind” and Dean proved to be persistent. It’s not some stupid obligation, he really loves to have Ben around, teach him valuable stuff (especially about cars and pies – Dean’s favorite topics) and call him his “son” any other day.

And Ben appreciates this more than anything. Dean is more of a father to him than any other guy who ever claimed trying to take the job.

“So, who is this mystery-date of yours?” Ben asks, grinning. He can’t help finding this whole situation entertaining. It’s been a while since Dean went on a serious date, so this woman clearly must be something special.

Something very special because Dean is fidgety and nervous like a teenager before his first prom.

“Um … it’s Cas,” Dean says and yeah, he is freaking blushing!

Awesome!

“Cas, huh?” Ben frowns, trying to remember the name since Dean sounded like Ben should know it.

Maybe he’s talking about Cassie, his ex-girlfriend? Besides Lisa obviously the only serious relationship he ever had. Dean talked about her once or twice (and Ben saw a picture of her a few years back) and although he never seemed to feel an urge to go back to her, obviously something changed his mind about that.

Well, good for him.

OMG what if we get articles like "Louis Tomlinson out with his very close friend, who has accompanied him everywhere from his tour to his vacations with his GF to doctor visits for his baby" and people start thinking this is his gay life partner with whom he had this baby using Briana as surrogate and they're bearding with DC? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I will laugh forever omg I would have noticed and said something for sure, like Ronaldo and his boyfriend being in every picture! :D :D :D

It would be the biggest oops ever. Hiding the gay with Harry with a baby and gf only to have people think he gay with oli lmao

anonymous asked:

seriously, if larries were really all that confident that Larry is together, they would've just gone with the surrogate theory. No drama, no far-reaching manipulative info-hiding theories, no misogyny toward Briana, no doubting, just everyone in the situation happy and consenting to a beautiful new life and a beautiful new step in Louis and Harry's situation. The fact that they're going this far and believing such complicated/ridiculous things is telling of how much they really believe in Larry.

i mean if i were still fanatically larrying, this would probably be the route i’d go. i’m a little surprised this isn’t the way they went with it. 

Salvate Saviano dalle madri surrogate.

Il 5 Febbraio su l’Espresso, Roberto Saviano pubblica un articolo sulle madri surrogate dal titolo “Quegli atti d’amore dietro i diritti negati”.

La base del discorso del Saviano pensiero è uno solo: l’amore. 

Intendiamoci, io sono favorevole alle unioni civili, alla poligamia, alle coppie fatte da un sapiens e una banana, ai figli adottati, gli uteri in affitto e l’inseminazione artificiale con impianto dell’embrione in incubatrici di plexiglas assemblate a Pomigliano, ma non credo ci sia l’amore alla base di tutto ciò. 

Per questo motivo che quando ho letto “esistono paesi in cui la pratica della maternità surrogata non solo è legale, ma è anche riconosciuta per quello che è: un atto incredibile di altruismo e di amore” ho capito una volta per tutte che Saviano ha passato troppo tempo insieme a Fabio Fazio e gli si è atrofizzato il cervello.

A sua discolpa c’è da dire che l’argomento unioni civili, adozione, utero in affitto ecc. è sempre stato affrontato dal punto di vista dell’amore. Se due si amano perché non possono vivere insieme? E avere figli? E adottarli? Perché l’amore è un sentimento soggettivo che ci spinge a reazioni spropositate e fuori di ogni logica e su cui non possiamo fare affidamento. Se due si amano non è detto che possano adottare un bambino. Ovviamente vale per chiunque, coppie etero, coppie omo, coppie fatte da sapiens con una banana e via dicendo.

Quello che però è importante è dare le stesse leggi indipendentemente dal sesso della coppia. Questo è il punto fondamentale: l’uguaglianza legislativa che non discrimina in base al sesso.

Ma c’è un’altra cosa che mi preme discutere dell’articolo di Saviano e che ritengo diretta conseguenza della distorsione della discussione provocata dall’amore. Saviano scrive:

“In alcuni casi la maternità surrogata è consentita solo in forma altruistica (come in Canada), in altri prevede un compenso per la donna che si sottopone a inseminazione artificiale, che deve interrompere il proprio lavoro per il tempo della maternità. Si tratta di un rimborso spese perché come è chiaro, soprattutto a quanti sentono di dover difendere i diritti dei bambini, non ci sarebbe prezzo giusto per un dono tanto grande. Un dono che a volerlo comprare non basterebbe tutto l’oro del mondo.”

Il “dono che a volerlo comprare non basterebbe tutto l’oro del Mondo”, negli Stati Uniti, dove in alcuni Stati è legale (tipo la California se non erro) e ci sono le agenzie per le madri surrogate, il famoso “dono” ammonta a 150.000 dollari. Questo è il prezzo da pagare per un figlio da madre surrogata. Ma gli Stati Uniti, si sa, non sono l’esempio migliore per ciò che riguarda la sanità. 

In Canada - dove Saviano parla di “maternità surrogata consentita solo in forma altruistica”, il costo finale è tra i 45 e i 100.000 dollari canadesi a seconda di tante cose, compresi i costi della madre surrogata. Ammetto però che non capisco quando scrive “in altri prevede un compenso per la donna che si sottopone a inseminazione artificiale”. Cioè, come se lo immagina Saviano? Il futuro padre che si scopa la madre surrogata? 

- avete un figlio surrogato? Dio che bello. È costato tanto?
+ Ma no, mio marito alla fine si è scopato la madre surrogata ed abbiamo risparmiato quei 20.000 dollari tra fecondazione in vitro e impianto.
- figata!

Il resto di quello che racconta riguarda la Gran Bretagna, dove è vietato pagare la madre surrogata come prestazione, ma bisogna pagare spese mediche, vestiti, asilo se ha un figlio ed ha bisogno di assistenza, le cure e un rimborso per il periodo lavorativo perso per la maternità. Si calcola tra le 7.000 e le 15.000 sterline. Un prezzo sicuramente più accettabile dei 150.000 dollari americani.

Poi ci sono Paesi come India, Ucraina, Thailandia dove per molto meno puoi trovare la madre surrogata che vuoi. I rischi potete immaginare quali possano essere.

Questo per dire che non esiste nessun atto di bontà, d’amore, d’amicizia e stronzate varie. Decidere di avere un figlio attraverso una madre surrogata costa una barca di soldi e non è detto che funzioni sempre. Soprattutto non sarà un atto d’amore fine a sé stesso che vi farà la madre surrogata perché sa cosa voglia dire avere un figlio. 

La frase di chiusura “Quanto amore c’è in tutto questo non è mai tardi per comprenderlo.” sarà l’incipit per il prossimo film di Tarantino.

Okay, so isn't this a bit much? Like, everyone knows about Lance Bass saying how bad his closet was, fake girl friends all that. But like, bringing a baby into this? Bringing a baby into this just to keep him in the closet. Isn't this against his basic human rights? Won't their team end up in some kind of lawsuit? Like this is super intense to do this to a human because he's gay.

Elton John MARRIED his beard and then came out and now he has two kids with his husband. Jeremy Renner got a surrogate and claimed it was a one night stand and now he is raising the child with his “best friend” who moved in with them in a big house. Cristiano Ronald got a surrogate to have a kid and he is in a closeted relationship with a boxer.  Justin Bieber got one of his dancers pregnant, she had his baby and she was paid billions to disappear into thin air because she couldn’t ruin his image at the peak of his career. SIMON COWELL “””had a baby””” with his best friend’s ex wife and he has paraded him around to show how straight he is and how good life is in the land of Straight People with money. Katie Holmes still pretend her daughter is Tom Cruise’s. NOTHING in the music/showbiz industry is impossible, they’d go ALL THE WAY to sell what they want to sell or the industry. If it wasn’t real, parents giving their babies for rent in Hollywood to pretend a pregnancy and a birth if needed wouldn’t exist at all.

“Few organizations have pervasively and durably monopolized a market as well as America’s Republican and Democratic parties. The two dominant machines steering the U.S. electorate have consistently diminished the potential for a freer America. That’s because the reality is, rather than arch rivals, liberals and conservatives are two factions of the same team. Both are capitalist. Both are imperialist. Both are white supremacist surrogates. And both are controlled by a plutocratic elite who have discovered… that competition is best neutralized by eliminating all possible outliers. We merely perceive the two parties as markedly different because of the degree to which the spectrum of possibilities has been narrowed.”

A Vote for Hillary Is a Vote for Hope -- New Hampshire Voters Miss the Mark
Hillary Clinton wasn't just defeated by Bernie Sanders yesterday -- she was defeated by women. Sanders received 53 percent of the female vote overall to Clinton's 46 percent, according to ABC News' exit polling. 69 percent of Democratic women voters under 45 backed Sanders and 82 percent of Democratic women voters under 30 did. All I can say to that is, "Shame on young women!"

I had hoped that after Sanders won among women overall in NH that the shaming of women might stop. I had hoped that the Clinton campaign and its surrogates would realize that it wasn’t a winning strategy.

Sadly, it looks like it is going to continue.

It actually makes tons of sense to me. Surrogate, adoption, etc. Something is up. The child is named after British icon Freddie Mercury who openly identified as bisexual. Not to mention that RBB is always dressed as Freddie… Just think about it. Don’t panic, don’t shut down, and certainly don’t lose hope. This isn’t the end.

There are a couple of folks arguing in our notifications over how much say the partner who isn’t pregnant should get over what happens to a pregnancy. The wording I’ve used right there should give you a clue.

If you’re not the one who’s pregnant, it isn’t your call. You don’t get to call the shots over someone else’s body.

Ideally, partners would make this decision together and would be on the same page, but the world isn’t always perfect. Supplying half the blue prints isn’t the same as doing half the work, so if your pregnant partner decides that they want to abort and you don’t want them to, guess what. Their choice trumps yours cause they’re the one who’s pregnant.

If you want someone to have a baby for you, find a surrogate. Find a partner who wants to have a kid with you. I’m getting real sick of this “but it’s 50% my DNA!” bullshit. Cumming in me does not give you license to control my body.

I do have a soft spot for people whose partners chose abortion when they didn’t want them to. I really do. That sympathy does not extend to the part where you say that both partners should have an equal say in what happens. You, as the non-pregnant one, can say what you want, but your partner, as the pregnant one, has the right not to listen. If you’re really worried about this happening, talk about this before having sex. Ask your partner what they would do in the event of an unplanned pregnancy. If you’re in a relationship, revive the conversation intermittently because answers can and do change. Decide whether or not to have sex with that person based on that answer to minimize the odds of being blindsided one way or the other. Pressuring someone into remaining pregnant is just as wrong as pressuring someone into having an abortion. Be communicative with your partner so you’re on the same page and you’ll be far less likely to wind up in a less than ideal situation like this.

The movie ‘Dofus Livre 1: Julith’, available in French cinemas as of TODAY, the 3rd of February 2016.

Taking place three years after the animated series ‘Dofus: Aux Trésors de Kerubim’, the movie tells the story about Joris, a ten year old boy who lives with his surrogate father Kerubim Crepin in a shop possessed by a friendly demon located in the city of Bonta.

Joris dreams of knowing what his parents were like and finds an example in the Gobbowl super star Khan Karkass, his idol. When the chance to meet Khan and get an autograph from him arrives, Joris disobeys Kerubim’s request to stay at home and sneaks out with his best friend Lilotte to meet Khan.

While Joris is out, Kerubim learns about the terrible truth which is coming their way; Julith the Butcher, a witch who is accountable for many deaths several years prior has returned to take revenge on Bonta and is seeking for something which will turn Joris’ life completely upside down. With a broken ebony dragon egg, a Dofus, in her possession, nothing will stop Julith from reaching her goal. Not even a little boy.

Will Joris and his friends be able to stop Julith or will she be able to fulfill her own desire by any means necessary?


‘Dofus Livre 1: Julith’ is rated PG in France (PG: Parental Guidance suggested, some material may be inappropriate for children).
