it’s always baffling to me when people say “the bible says adam and eve not adam and steve” yeah but like the bible says adam and eve were massive incompetent piles of shit who fucked up god’s creation and doomed humanity for all eternity are you really going to use them as shining examples of heterosexual goodness
why didn’t harry use the chamber of secrets when teaching dumbledore army? i mean, only HE could open the door?
because the giant basilisk skeleton might have been a distraction
if anything it sets the mood
Anonymous said: teen pregnancy, yay or nay?
I presume we’re talking about unplanned teen pregnancy, right? Well, teenage pregnancy is something that the society I live in just doesn’t want to see. The rates in our country are going up. We support sexual education, but don’t put enough effort in it to make it better.
I’m gonna go with both yay and nay. Why?
Because I think that health care providers and families should support the parents- to be in whatever their decision is. With the right support teenage parents can finish school and raise their children. And by support I mean financial aid, education, health care, counseling, whatever it takes. If the mother doesn’t wish to keep the child, abortion or adoption should be offered, but one should never be forced to keep the child, end the pregnancy or give a child up for adoption. Or judged for the decision they made.
Yes, there are ways to prevent it. Better sex ed, birth control for sexually active people, I just think it’s time to wake up and start doing stuff to make it happen.
I have teenage brothers and sisters, aged 17, 14 and 13. They each had one sex ed lesson that lasted 45 minutes, the same one I had when I was their age. Same class, same teacher. Didn’t work for my generation - it just wasn’t enough. We learned about sex and periods from magazines - and thank god they existed, because I would be freaked out when I got my first period!
I know a few people who had children in their teenage years. They ended up happy or not so happy. Some say that they wish that they hadn’t gotten pregnant (so early or at all) and some say that it’s the best thing that has ever happened to them. But isn’t that something that can happen to anyone at any age?
So let’s just not judge them - let’s help them and support them to make good decisions,
Living on my own has been so stressful. Every third week of the month, my stomach is in my throat. Will I be able to pay rent this month? What if something comes up? I won’t have a roof over my head if I can’t pay rent. Yet, even with all of these stress factors, I’m happier than I ever have been. I’m finally free.
