Anonymous asked: what do you do politically besides bicker on tumblr

I donated a substantial amount to NAMI earlier this year and have a current membership with them.  I would be going through instructor training with them to lead some of their monthly meetings but unfortunately my work schedule is really tight right now and I can’t.  Most nights I don’t get home until after 10pm, and I work Saturdays as well.  I have multiple 12-hour shifts each week and I commute 45minutes one way. This really limits the amount of volunteering I can do, and I miss it a lot.

Before I moved I also volunteered with an animal rescue, generally around once per week.  I have unfortunately been unable to fit that into my schedule as well, though I did adopt a rescue cat a few weeks ago.  I’ll probably donate to a rescue before the year is out, I haven’t picked which one yet.

I also used to work the polls at elections (the person who takes your signature and works the voting machine), but since I started working FT I haven’t been able to get the day off for that.  That’s not necessarily “political.”

I have a membership with USPA, but again, that’s not necessarily political, though they do tackle policy as it intersects with skydiving.

I contact my legislators on specific issues that I feel are important - usually by sending NAMI form emails, I think I did for net neutrality, breed-specification legislation — my pet issues.  All that is is just getting your tally counted - I interned in Congress so I know how that works.

My long-term plans are in flux at the moment, but I do plan to move again, rejoin grad school, and ultimately work for a think tank — in policy analysis or creation.  My journey into sales is a fun side venture, but I don’t plan to make this a long-term career.  I just needed a break after six straight years of academia, to be honest.  It’s sucking up a lot of time, but I’m working to progress into a management position, and that’s just part of the business.

EDIT: Because I wasn’t clear here - my BA is in political science and I consider politics my career.  It is not a hobby, it is something I am planning to devote my life to.

It’s unimaginable and disgusting that this happens to children that don’t even understand what’s happening to them.

-Allie

Her name was María and she did not want to have an abortion. She also does not want to give the baby up for adoption, but have him grow up with her. The baby’s name is José.

It would be far more traumatic to force her into an abortion than have her safely give birth via C-section, especially considering everyone was unaware of the pregnancy until she was around 5 months.

"Safetly via C-section." Haven’t heard that one before. I never knew cutting people open, especially small children was considered "safe".

That is the terminology used for a medical procedure that was carried out successfully. 

Logic: “Little Suzie runs out in the street but doesnt get hit by a car. Running in the street is considered safe in this instance.” Just cause this particular instance or many other instances of C-section procedures were ‘successful’, doesnt make the procedure any more safe. The mere fact that you have to call it ‘successful’ implies that something can go wrong. Not a safe procedure in the slightest. It involves cutting someone open to remove a child. 

Is English not your first language or something?  How are you not familiar with that phraseology? 

Furthermore, natural births can go horribly wrong as well. There’s nothing bad about a cesarean

*sighs at this white* Chill with the racism wtf???

How was that racist?  It was a completely honest question.  That’s common medical terminology that would understandably throw off a non-native speaker.

Why do you think that I do not care about others’ opinions?

I do think so, yes, but I do not think that posting my opinion on the internet has anything to do with that.

Anonymous asked: I don't understand why you had to comment your opinion. Keep it to yourself. maybe you like to be harassed, but it doesn't mean other people do. So shut up and sit down the next time you think about commenting on posts.

Because it’s the internet, it’s public, and I saw the question being asked, and wanted to provide an alternative viewpoint? 

Tumblr is not an echo chamber.  If you do not want people to comment on your posts, you need to create a private blog, or create an invitation-only one where you can monitor the comments and delete any that you disagree with.  There are many, many, many, many websites where you can do this.

Anonymous asked: Okay. You can disagree with feminism and like getting harassed online; but who really cares? Why do you have to go and start things with people? Just leave them be and they will leave you be. Don't push your opinions onto people.

If you don’t want people commenting on your opinions then do not post them on a public forum, especially on a public blog with thousands of followers.

Anonymous asked: You're way of thinking blows my mind. You don't GET how a girl would find a strange man harassing an innocent girl isn't a compliment??? Women get sexualized all the time by disgusting men when we're just walking down the fucking street and it's degrading and unwanted. You need to UNDERSTAND that because clearly you're not getting it.

Assumptions in this post:

  • "strange" man; I guess I can leave this be if we’re talking about anon asks, but it was never qualified
  • "innocent" girl
  • "disgusting"
  • "men" - it’s not just dudes that hit on me, as my followers know
  • "Women get sexualized all the time… walking down the street" — your mileage may vary, but I’ve lived in the city and street harassment was not common by any stretch of the imagination
  • "it’s degrading"  — subjective
  • "and unwanted" — CLEARLY not

Socrates is disappointed in you.

semperfisoldier asked: That sexual harassment post is growing notes quickly, but everyone is ignoring the fact that the first line legit says "what person wants to be sexual harassed" which is the question you answered . ??? That is so silly!

I’m getting hate mail complaining that the question was rhetorical.  (It will all be posted, I’m just ignoring it because I should be working and then getting distracted and not working, shuttup.) 

Do not ask questions you do not want the answers to and then complain about getting the answers.  I mean, you can do that, but the person who answered the question isn’t the one who looks like a fucktard.
