He has a 99.99% chance of stealing yo girl

There is no "pro-life". There is just an elaborate misogynist long con to strip women of any rights or gains made in the 20th Century.

This statement is a response to the people who are continually shocked that “pro-life” doesn’t care about babies after they are born, the death penalty, making sure poor people don’t die b/c their health care has been stolen, etc.

Yes, of course “pro-life” doesn’t care about that. Because it’s not about lives and it never was.

They never cared about babies. The whole baby thing is part of the con. 

It’s a con. Stop believing in right wing lies.

It’s not about babies. It was never about babies. Stop arguing with them about babies. 

Never argue with a liar on their own liar terms.

This is why “pro-life” people are also coming after IUDs and the Pill and preventing people from getting life-saving miscarriage care.

So-called “pro-life” is a movement that murders doctors and bombs medical clinics. 


And we really need to talk about tactics here, b/c misogyny is winning the propaganda war and has been for decades.

If your personal stance is- I believe everyone should be able to get an abortion but… Just stop before the but.

Stop qualifying it with “but I never would” or I think it’s wrong" or whatever other “I’m a good person” signal you are trying to throw out.

B/c by doing that, you are ceding ground to misogynist violence. You are letting them win the “is abortion a bad thing” argument.

Abortion is not bad. And if you support abortion access- All you need to say is “I support abortion access for anyone who wants one”. 

We have to reframe the abortion fight as what it really is- a misogynist attack on gender equality. It’s not about babies at all. It never was.

If you understand that, you will understand why the so called “pro-life” movement behaves as it does.

The rhetoric and behavior does not match up at all. That should tell you something. 

Don’t pay attention to what they say. Only to what they do.

VOTE IN THE FINAL FOUR HERE

Why you should vote:

  • this is stiles and lydia’s last year to win Top Tv Couple, even if you like all the other couples including evak who we’re up against, they’ll have another chance to win next year 
  • if we win we get an interview with either Jeff or Holland/DOB (probs not DOB unless its over the phone lmao but we can dream)
  • it would just be nice to win after 6 years of people calling us delusional LOL and we all know stydia will go down in history but they will literally be the top couple of 2017 and i love validation after all this teasing

How to vote efficiently: 

  • there are voting parties that stydianews sets up on twitter so check them out
  • we’re only going to make progress if you vote multiple, multiple, times
  • your vote only counts if you hit “im not a robot” and then have to verify a bunch of annoying street signs and shit
  • HERE’S A STYDIA PLAYLIST WHILE YOU VOTE or just watch some tv in the background lmao

We literally just beat olicity TWICE and got the most votes out of the entire competition, breaking a record. To put it in perspective Clexa, last years winners and an insanely popular ship got 265,393 votes against their competitor this year and Stydia got 620,215 against Olicity. We can seriously win this LET’S DO IT :D

We’re soldiers, we have to know what we’re fighting for. I’m not fighting so some man or woman I barely know can sit on a throne made of swords. So what are you fighting for? Life. Death is the enemy. The first enemy and the last. The enemy always wins, and we still need to fight him. That’s all I know. You and I won’t find much joy while we’re here, but we can keep others alive, we can defend those who can’t defend themselves. Maybe we don’t need to understand any more than that. Maybe that’s enough.    b e y o n d  t h e  w a l l

For real though, Griffin inviting you into the podcast as a participant and having the story say that it doesn’t know what you’re going to face, but it knows you’re going to win?

It’s such a good use of not just audio as a medium, but podcasting itself, where you interact with the creators on a more regular and personal basis, where you go on the journey of creation with the people making the story as they’re doing it. It’s just such a clever and beautiful move to make the audience a part of the actual story like that?

And then there’s the fact that you’re going to win. It shifts the story tension from the plot to the people and what they’re experiencing. We don’t need to worry about winning - we’ve got that down. It’s how we get there that’s important, as a story, as characters, as people. It’s an out of verse message to the audience, as well as a call back to decisions that both Lup and Lucretia made about what they were and weren’t willing to do to win.

It’s always been clear that the mcelroys love their fans I think, but this final arc is basically a love letter to their audience confirming that, it’s just fucking gorgeous.
