new romantic comedy pitch: a young woman falls in love with two people at once: her best friend and a guy she met online dating.

PLOT TWIST: her best friend is a girl. she’s bi. she says the word bisexual in the script.

PLOT TWIST 2: she’s not forced to choose. it ends in polyamory. all three of them are in a healthy, open relationship where they all equally support each other physically and emotionally.

Pure awesome!

This sounds amazing.

The Satanic Temple is using the Hobby Lobby decision to exempt its followers from anti-abortion laws

teal-deer:

The Satanic Temple follows the tenets of LaVeyan Satanism. Among those tenants are:

  • One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.
  • The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forego your own.
  • Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.

This means under no uncertain terms that telling a Satanist woman that she can’t have an abortion is against her religion, as it violates her freedom, does not conform to our best scientific understanding of the world, and violates the idea that her body is inviolable and subject to her will alone. 

What the Temple is saying is that according to their religion, Satanist women do not have to be subjected to state mandated so-called “Informed Consent” materials (really bullying propaganda designed to scare women out of abortions) and that only the woman has the right to decide whether or not she wants an abortion

The website linked above also includes a letter you can print out and hand to your doctor stating that your deeply held religious beliefs mean that your bodily autonomy cannot be violated. 

Here’s an article from The Raw Story about it. 

In short:

thanks satan

What would have once sounded like a “far-fetched feminist fantasy” – women forming the majority of a parliament – is a reality in Rwanda.
In fact, women are making gains throughout Africa, but these achievements have been met with a loud silence from the western feminist movement. 
African women are blazing a feminist trail - why don’t we hear their voices? (The Guardian)

If you ever find yourself trying to deal with the “socialism has failed” rhetoric, remind them that the capitalism took hundreds of years to take over from feudalism, that it was bloody, hard, and had many setbacks and failures along the way. The bourgeois also had huge innovations in both the methods and relations of production to help them. Production under socialism is of course better than under capitalism, but it is mostly an innovation in the relations of production alone, and thus does not constitute an absolutely colossal leap as was seen from feudalism to capitalism, which helped the bourgeois immensely.

Specific examples of this include the “reset” of the Congress of Vienna, the numerous failures of the Italian city-states, the destruction of the English Commonwealth, etc. Not to mention the lagging capitalist development of most of the agrarian Third World, where feudal relations persisted for centuries after they died out in Europe because of imperialist economic distortions.

Sometimes I think about how many little things we probably do every day that would totally mess up the reasoning of a Sherlock-Holmes-style detective.

Like the other day we went to the cinema and I was wearing a shirt with no pockets so I put the ticket in my trouser pocket.  The next day I was wearing the same trousers and I put my hand in my pocket and found the ticket there.

Now, I have a certain selection of things I always have in my trouser pockets and I don’t really like having anything else in there because it confuses my hands when I want to get something, so I took the ticket out.  And I wasn’t near a rubbish bin, but I was wearing a shirt with a breast pocket.  So I put the ticket in the shirt pocket.

And I thought: if I get interestingly murdered, the Sherlock-Holmes-style detective is going to deduce that I’m wearing the same shirt that I wore yesterday.  Because it’s got a cinema ticket in the pocket with yesterday’s date on, and why on earth would anyone put a cinema ticket in the pocket of a shirt unless they were wearing the shirt when they went to the cinema?

Which is a bit of reasoning we would all find totally convincing if it came from a Sherlock-Holmes-style detective.  But it would be wrong.  Because actually there are so many other explanations for things once you take account of the fact that people are often slightly eccentric in completely trivial and unguessable ways.

“Samuel Vimes dreamed about Clues. He had a jaundiced view of Clues. He instinctively distrusted them. They got in the way. And he distrusted the kind of person who’d take one look at another man and say in a lordly voice to his companion, “Ah, my dear sir, I can tell you nothing except that he is a left-handed stonemason who has spent some years in the merchant navy and has recently fallen on hard times,” and then unroll a lot of supercilious commentary about calluses and stance and the state of a man’s boots, when exactly the same comments could apply to a man who was wearing his old clothes because he’d been doing a spot of home bricklaying for a new barbecue pit, and had been tattooed once when he was drunk and seventeen* and in fact got seasick on a wet pavement. What arrogance! What an insult to the rich and chaotic variety of the human experience!”

—Terry Pratchett, Feet of Clay
