Mila Kunis Against Men Saying “We Are Pregnant” - Video

What the fuck is this bullshit and why was it recommended for me?

It’s not like men are involved in the creation of the baby or anything.

I mean shit, I understand that pregnancy is an extremely strenuous thing on the woman, but that doesn’t mean that a dude can’t be proud of the fact that he’s going to be a father.

Hmm. Weird how someone would want to be considered a part of the pregnancy…
There goes all of my respect for Mila Kunis.

My goodness, women like this have some fucking nerve. Good luck Ashton.

Please stop.

Pregnancy is a very dangerous time for cis-women. Until cis-men are capable of nine months of pain without the ability to take painkillers, followed by hours of one of the most painful experiences a human can undergo, I agree with Mila Kunis. It is your child. Not your pregnancy. You don’t get a fucking medal for sticking your dick inside someone and impregnating them, you get a child. So no, you don’t need a fucking spotlight highlighting your months of work and pain and the fact that you can potentially die trying to bring life into the world when you have not undergone any of the physical effort.

Things you can expect during pregnancy: Anemia, urinary tract infections, constipation, mental health conditions including intense depression, hyperemesis gravidarm (basically when persistent vomiting is more than just morning sickness and requires hospitalization). Not to mention there are dozens of infections that can cause serious problems. (x) (x)

Oh and the fact that 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriages which obviously requires hospitalization for the pregnant woman and causes a lot of emotional trauma.

Or that you can’t consume alcohol, most types of fish, you can’t expose yourself to hot water (or any heat, really), or get an x-ray. You cannot eat lunch meats, raw sprouts (radishes, alfalfa, etc.), soft cheeses, anything unpasteurized is out, as are foods with raw or undercooked eggs. And caffeine can lead to miscarriages, so say goodbye to coffee, teas, and chocolate. (x) (x) (x)

About 2 million pregnancy losses occur annually in the U.S.; 6 million babies are born. 25% of pregnancies are lost.

14.5% of pregnant women will experience at least one pregnancy complication.

11% of women are diagnosed with post partum depression.

(x)

800 women die because of pregnancy-related problems in the U.S. annually. (x)

Labor can last for 36 hours or more. You’re in a room full of strangers, who are all seeing your vagina, your blood, your shit, your piss, and your agony. It’s common for tearing to occur during the delivery (x) and after the baby is born you still have to deliver the placenta (essentially an organ).

Pregnancy is terrifying, dangerous, and uncomfortable. None of you have the right to shit on Mila Kunis for telling the truth: You do not deserve the spotlight of your wife’s pregnancy. So get over yourselves. Yes, the father CAN be proud, and he should be. But it’s not his pregnancy. He is not the one who will endure it.

It is not weird that someone would want to be involved in their wife’s pregnancy. It is weird that you have the fucking nerve to lose respect for someone reminding you that the father is not the pregnant one in the picture.

So please, stop.

Today in male entitlement: now women ”have some nerve” if they remind men that they are not, in fact, the pregnant ones. 

finding the crossed out comments super funny

Robin Williams Is NOT Free (via Phoebe Gavin)

Did you know that suicide is contagious?
Yep. A great deal of research has been done on cases spanning the last three hundred years the show that suicide rates spike after a highly publicized suicide – especially when it’s a celebrity suicide.
Does that mean we shouldn’t talk about suicide or Robin Williams? No. It means we should talk about suicide and Robin Williams responsibly.
From the CDC: ASPECTS OF NEWS COVERAGE THAT CAN PROMOTE SUICIDE CONTAGION
  • Presenting simplistic explanations for suicide
  • Engaging in repetitive, ongoing, or excessive reporting of suicide in the news
  • Providing sensational coverage of suicide
  • Reporting “how-to” descriptions of suicide
  • Presenting suicide as a tool for accomplishing certain ends
  • Glorifying suicide or persons who commit suicide
  • Focusing on the suicide completer’s positive characteristics
"But Phoebe, they’re basically saying don’t talk about suicide."
No, they’re saying is don’t make it sound attractive. 

An example of what not to do: 

Robin Williams is NOT free.

Please watch this. 

Please don’t discuss the method he used. It’s unnecessary.

Utah is ending homelessness by giving people an apartment or home.
Earlier this month, Hawaii State representative Tom Bower (D) began walking the streets of his Waikiki district with a sledgehammer, and smashing shopping carts used by homeless people. “Disgusted” by the city’s chronic homelessness problem, Bower decided to take matters into his own hands — literally. He also took to rousing homeless people if he saw them sleeping at bus stops during the day.
Bower’s tactics were over the top, and so unpopular that he quickly declared “Mission accomplished,” and retired his sledgehammer. But Bower’s frustration with his city’s homelessness problem is just an extreme example of the frustration that has led cities to pass measures that effective deal with the homeless by criminalizing homelessness.
City council members in Columbia, South Carolina, concerned that the city was becoming a “magnet for homeless people,” passed an ordinance giving the homeless the option to either relocate or get arrested. The council later rescinded the ordinance, after backlash from police officers, city workers, and advocates.
Last year, Tampa, Florida — which had the most homeless people for a mid-sized city — passed an ordinance allowing police officers to arrest anyone they saw sleeping in public, or “storing personal property in public.” The city followed up with a ban on panhandling downtown, and other locations around the city.
Philadelphia took a somewhat different approach, with a law banning the feeding of homeless people on city parkland. Religious groups objected to the ban, and announced that they would not obey it.
Raleigh, North Carolina took the step of asking religious groups to stop their longstanding practice of feeding the homeless in a downtown park on weekends. Religious leaders announced that they would risk arrest rather than stop.
This trend makes Utah’s accomplishment even more noteworthy. In eight years, Utah has quietly reduced homelessness by 78 percent, and is on track to end homelessness by 2015.
How did Utah accomplish this? Simple. Utah solved homelessness by giving people homes. In 2005, Utah figured out that the annual cost of E.R. visits and jail says for homeless people was about $16,670 per person, compared to $11,000 to provide each homeless person with an apartment and a social worker. So, the state began giving away apartments, with no strings attached. Each participant in Utah’s Housing First program also gets a caseworker to help them become self-sufficient, but the keep the apartment even if they fail. The program has been so successful that other states are hoping to achieve similar results with programs modeled on Utah’s.

This is amazing. 

People have been saying for years that outright giving away homes to the homeless would actually save money in the long run but I had no idea ANYWHERE in America had the balls to try it.
Also props to those Churches who were told to stop feeding homeless people and said (in a more Church-friendly way, I’m assuming) fuck the police.

Hope this idea catches on!
Its really amazing seeing a positive social care concept coming from within the US, where it would normally be labeled socialist therefore bad. Hope this idea catches on!

And this is how one breaks the cycle.
If you have a house, you have a permanent address. If you have a permanent address, you can apply for work. If you apply for work, you might get hired. If you get hired, you will have money. If you have money, you can create savings. If you create savings, you can become independent. If you become independent, you can afford to move out. If you afford to move out, you vacate the space and open it up to someone else—while you go on to have a home of your own and a savings account and fiscal independence which means you’re spending money which means you’re contributing to the economy which means you’re a tax payer which means your taxes now fund the social programme which means more beds can be opened which means more people can be helped until suddenly
No one is homeless, the economy is running at full speed and overage costs associated with homelessness (medical, social, economic) are now hovering in the single digits.

housing first (the utah programme) is specifically targeted at homeless people with mental illness, drug dependency, and repeat contact with the police (note the quoted figures for jail time in the OP). it’s a great idea, and i wish it would be widely implemented, but it’s not for those homeless people who can realistically go on to get a job and a freaking savings account. those people don’t really need an assigned social worker or drug treatment. (don’t get me wrong, they do need a safety net and a home but not this programme)
edit: this post makes it seem that people with mental health issues or addiction won’t ever go on to get a job. that’s obviously wrong. however, my understanding of housing first (i have researched it in depth) is that it is targeted at people with (often) untreated symptoms of personality disorder, possibly both drug and alcohol dependency, usually extensive criminal records albeit largely petty crimes, and who have been chronically excluded from ‘usual services’. therefore, selling housing first on the basis that it’ll get people into work seems misguided.

Self Care Bingo By missvoltairine

Here for this bingo

So far today I’ve taken my meds, eaten something yummy, talked to a friend, worked hard, chillded out, hugged a loved one, socialized, stayed hydrated, and stretched.  If I play a game I hit bingo - and I think this counts ;)  

… I don’t think I’ve actually hit a bingo on this like, ever. gg me. Can’t even play self care bingo properly.

hi, OP here. It makes me feel really sad when I see people looking at this bingo card and beating themselves up about not being able to fill enough squares. Even if you don’t “win” by hitting a bingo on this card, my whole idea was that just playing is enough to get you a win. Maybe the setup of a bingo card makes it seem too much like a game with connotations of competition and “winning” versus “losing”, but I wanted something that was fun and engaging! I totally never wanted people to feel bad about their performance at self-care bingo. 
Not all of the things on this bingo card are even 100% accessible and that’s okay. I made this card as an act of self-care for me (making art is a big way for me to feel productive and satisfied with myself and my use of my time) and while I think more people have found it useful than not, there are definitely people who don’t find it useful. And that is totally, completely cool. This cartoon is not designed to be a definitive guide on how to take care of yourself. 
If looking at this bingo makes you feel bad about the self-care you do, by all means do not hold yourself to this bingo! You can change the rules, you can write your own squares, you can go “fuck it I don’t even LIKE bingo” and just not play. It you feel bad about this bingo, then ignoring it can be an act of self-care in and of itself - learning to tune out things that make you feel like you’re “failing” or w/e is definitely an act of self-care. 
Whatever you do, please know that you are not failing at self-care just because you didn’t get a bingo at a silly cartoon I drew for a fundraiser anthology! I promise. It’s just a cartoon. You are a living, breathing person whose life is so much more complicated and multifaceted than any cartoon done by a total stranger could relate.
