Quiere cantar su alegria a mi tierra Mexicana

Can we PLEASE stop idealizing and overly-romanticizing having a baby? Babies and reproduction are more complicated than little blessings from heaven. Taking care of a baby isn’t only joy and fantasy and love. That shit is the real deal. It requires money, time, patience, commitment — some things some people just aren’t in the place to give to someone else. You are alive right now, so you have a great perception of life. And if you happen to be someone who is trying for a baby, you’re probably in a good place to have one, so your views on living are better than most people. I literally do not understand folks who think ~life~ is the only requisite for a baby to be born. “At least it would have a life” is so bogus. Babies aren’t pets. They are humans with feelings and needs. When you can’t feed or be there for your toddler, what are you going to say? “At least you’re alive lol.” Yeah, no. Doesn’t work that way.

Because when you really want a baby you go to the doctors to make sure there isn’t something wrong with you . I blame my body for not functioning right . Why do girls that don’t want babies get babies and kill them why ?

Here I am without water and wanting water so badly.
Why do people who are drowning want to get out of water why

Comparing having a baby with drowning in water.

#justprochoicethings

Forcing everyone to view babies as “little blessings” and refusing to paint the situation with any hint of reality so they can continue to shame and berate people who do not want children, especially those they view as “required” to want them. #justprolifethings

Shout out to all of the brown girls whose first time shaving wasn’t a joyful step into womanhood, but an occasion marked by the shame and grief of coming home from school and begging your mom to let you do it because the kids at school wouldn’t stop pointing and laughing

i love the Women Against Feminism that are like “I dont need feminism because i can admit i need my husband to open a jar for me and thats ok!” cause listen 1. get a towel 2. get the towel damp 3. put it on the lid and twist. BAM now men are completely useless. you, too, can open a jar. time to get a divorce
