So today we were given some cases to analyze. One of such case talks about this unmarried girl who got pregnant and as soon as we heard that, everybody in the class was like “damn she needs to repent”
One group even said that if she doesn’t want the baby, she could give the baby away to an orphanage, because obviously, letting a child rot in orphanage is definitely better than killing an embryo.
None of them apparently noticed that maybe, she didn’t have sex with her boyfriend, maybe she was raped. I was the only one and I got teased when I raised my argument. Really? In what kind of utopia do they live in where not even the girls are aware of such issues? EVEN THE GIRLS WERE LIKE “the first thing she needs to do is ask for forgiveness” and “if she was raped, then she still needs to have the baby. She’ll find a nice husband to marry later anyways”
Can y’all fucking imagine being told that as a victim? Can you imagine being a child who was put in the orphanage since s/he was born? Can you imagine asking for god’s help whilst you were raped, and not receiving anything? Worse, you get a fucking reminder of that grim day and people scorns at you if you abort the baby EVEN THOUGH YOU’LL BE THE ONE WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CHILD???
And all that those people will do is scorn and look at you in disgust. As if they have any right on your ovary.
I’ve always known that my country is full of sexists but not to THIS extent.
Fall Out Boy, “Young Volcanoes”
REMEMBER THAT PART IN THE ODYSSEY WHEN ODYSEUS TOLD POLYTHEMUS THE CYCLOPS HIS NAME WAS NOBODY AND THEN HE STABBED HIM IN THE EYE WITH A GIANT STICK AND HE STARTED SCREAMING AND THE OTHER CYCLOPS YELLED FROM THEIR CAVES AND ASKED WHAT WAS GOING ON AND POLYTHEMUS SAID THAT NOBODY HAS HURT HIM AND THEY WERE LIKE WELL THEN SHUT THE FUCK UP
But for real.
I BET THAT IF TWO KIDS LIVED IN THOSE TWO HOUSES THAT THEY WOULD COME OUT ON THEIR ALMOST CONJOINING ROOFS OUTSIDE THEIR BEDROOM WINDOWS AND TALK AND BE BEST FRIENDS AND FALL IN LOVE.
I will not write fluff to that. I won’t. No.
