Army wife. Atheist - Born OK the first time. Psychologist. Liberal. Pro-choice. Southern.

My husband, M, just returned from yet another deployment.

For some reason, the public thinks that the military is full of uber religious super right-winged people. Here are my honest thoughts about being married to a Soldier while being an independent liberal educated female Atheist.

We went to this burger place for lunch (turned out to be a drag bar which was shitty in other ways) but the walls were papered with rolling stones covers and it just really becomes obvious when you see lots of magazine covers next to each other that men are treated as people and women are treated as objects.

THIS PROVES MY POINT SO HARD IT SMASHES YOU IN THE TEETH

GOSH DARN IT I HOPE YOU FEEL THE SLAP IN YOUR FACE

Fun facts: There are Atheists in the Military. Shocking, I know. And even Marines cannot go around punching people for no reason. That’s still illegal and he can get in big trouble with the law and his unit for attacking civilians. So no “good” Marine would do such a thing.

Question reblogged from STFU, PRO-LIFERS! with 95 notes

Anonymous said: how is rightfully comparing a human genocide like abortion racist, sexist, or anti-semitic when i compare it to slavery, the holocaust or general sexism? it all requires for you to see these people as less than human, which is what you do when you support legalized human murder.

stfuprolifers:

I don’t think any of it should be compared at all.  

Slavery =/= The Holocaust =/= Misogyny =/= Abortion

I also don’t consider abortion of fetuses to be human genocide.  While fetuses are human, genocide is a systematic and deliberate killing of a large group of people, most times because of ethnicity or nationality.  So, to call abortion, a medical procedure that’s sought after by individual citizens (not actual institutions of authority), a genocide is not only laughably ignorant but logically fallacious.

Why does comparing abortion to any one of these horrible things racist, misogynistic, and anti-semitic?

Because the people who experienced and are experiencing slavery, genocide, and misogyny are suffering.  They can actually feel the pain of losing friends and family and themselves. To compare abortion to any of that belittles the suffering as well as the people who are suffering.

It shows us how you view these people.

But go ahead.  If you truly feel that the victims of sexism and misogyny, genocides, and slavery—actual people—should be reduced to the level of mere fetuses, go right ahead.

Just know this:

Elie Wiesel, Nobel Peace prize winning author and survivor of the Holocaust, has spoken out against these comparisons.  He is frustrated with the idea of calling a person who gets an abortion a killer.  Seriously, google this.  He’s even quoted saying that whoever compares abortion to the Holocaust has no idea what the Holocaust was.

But I venture to say that it’s more than just being ignorant about history and current issues.  It’s a combination of woeful ignorance and one’s personal perspective of what value an actual person has compared to a fetus.

Hope that answers your question.

Wait a minute…

I have been laughing at this for hours now…

So, true story. The woman in this photo is Kendra Kaplan. Her husband was in Iraq for twelve months but the military has this thing called leave. Some of us may recognize the concept from old episodes of Star Trek. In this photo she is five months pregnant after conceiving her second child during her husband’s leave. That envelope in her hand is the ultrasound results. She waited for him to come home to find out if it was a girl or a boy.
There’s been several articles about it.The photo resulted in this woman receiving so much hate mail, from both internet cut-ups and the actual media, that she even took a paternity test and provided proof of her husband’s leave schedule. Her real life friends have stopped talking to her over these rumors.  
Oh, and by the way, that baby bump is a two year old by now. People are still shitting on this woman over a nasty internet meme two years later.
So in short, you’re mocking a faithful wife for something that isn’t any of our damn business anyway and has long since been disproven. 
Good job Internet.

Thank you for this!

Finally a rebloggable version of this idiotic post. 


Wow, people are freaking horrifying.

It’s very normal for a couple to try to get pregnant during R&R. Anyone with a military background would understand that. People need to grow the fuck up and pay attention to the world around them. There were times when men were deploying so frequently, that with the deployment and training schedule, if the father wanted to be there for the birth, you almost had to get pregnant during R&R.

THINX Underwear:

OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY

AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:

For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.

AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:

After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.

THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM

I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS

LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME

HOLY SHIT BALLS GUYS
