question...  
i saw an annoying blinkie today. Well all blinkies are annoying so annoying blinkie is redundant.

Anyways, it said "of all the rights of women the greatest is to be a mother".

i dont think that I agree with this..

why?

to me the greatest right is the ability to chose to be a mother or not, and to chose what we want our lives to be.

Dont get me wrong, motherhood is nothing to be ashamed of or to be considered not important.. but motherhood is not a woman's #1 job or a woman's #1 joy unless she wants it be that. But it shouldnt be a blanket statement.

Maybe if it would have said "my greatest right was to be a mother" or something like that I might not have had a problem with it.

This blinkie is discounting many of the women who chose to NOT be mothers, or who cant be mothers and I believe it unfair.

but...

what do you guys think?

I know it shouldn't, because we all know "OMG INTERNETZ SRS BIZNESS", but that really, really tears my heart apart.

I guess I'm just having an emo day today, but my not being able to have kids was the #1 reason why my last relationship failed, and it still hurts each and every day.

*sigh* :( Fuck those not PC enough to give a shit about people like me.

No, dude, this thread is amazing. Check this shit out:

http://community.livejournal.com/ljusersecrets/12736.html?thread=366272#t366272

"There was once a time where I took LJ and interwebz people very seriously. I used to pitch a fit in my journal people using "ZOMG" and "ROFL", and used to be PC everywhere I went.

Then I grew up.

This is teh interwebz. And IRL, it is AMERICA, home of the free, land of the brave, free speech, blah, blah, blah.

I am intelligent, I just don't take the time in my life to apply it to teh interwebz much.

You are not ignorant black folk, in fact, I find you very intelligent and profound, and I'm glad I had this debate (for what it's worth), with you.

Yes, I'll think twice about using the word in later reference, as a derogatory term. But in your case, CHILL, although it's a word with a lot of impact, it is still, JUST A WORD. Sticks and stones, you know?

Peace out, sistah."

See, it's ok to call people the N word because it's just the internet! But when someone mentions kids -- OHOOOOOO, that's DIFFERENT.

INteresting.

Apparently, "infertile" is offensive and horrible, but the n word is FREE SPEECH!!! I am SO glad for this thread. Of course, she still won't get it, because she's a fucking racist even though she claims she isn't. You watch. Calling her infertile = horrible thing. Calling someone the n word = free speech and not taking the internet seriously.

No wonder she hates black women so much! We have so many babies and SHE CAN'T HAVE ANY! BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Apparently God knew better than to let her breed.

it isnt being PC it is being considerate to the many women in the world who arent like her.

its fucking stupid and that was my first thought when I read that.
imadinowhore on July 25th, 2006 08:08 pm (UTC)

You aren't PC enough to care about using the N word, so why should people give a fuck about you?

Man, if I was in blackfolk, I would be SPAMMING this comment, right now, with INFERTILE. AHAHAHA INFERTILE.

I mean, wowowowo, not serious business and everything, amirite?

I am amazed that you want people to show sympathy to YOU while you refuse to show sympathy towards others.
Minamouseears2007 on July 25th, 2006 09:46 pm (UTC)
But yet I don't see her going around calling everyone the N word and then laughing hysterically over their skin color either. Going around spamming that she's infertile and laughing hysterically about it is crap prime, and I think you know it.
prime_radiant on July 25th, 2006 09:52 pm (UTC)
Actually, I did see her do that in ljusersecrets and in race posts here in booju, but um. nice try. And infertile is in NO WAY the same as calling somebody the N word, or using the N word and then taunting people when they get upset because they take the internet too seriously. Infertile doesn' thave the same kind of history as the n word, but nice try.

You're nicer than I am. Also, I'm just playing by her own rules! I mean, free speech and not taking the internet seriously and all that crap she was spouting means that she doesn't take the internet seriously and there's no need to be PC, right?
Chelsearx_suicide on July 25th, 2006 11:24 pm (UTC)
Go ahead, give it a whirl. Everyone else has.

And for the record, I like you. Even if I am a "racist" in everyone's eyes.

Maybe the real reason people don't give a shit about you is because you're an asshole.
Karenbodylotion on July 25th, 2006 10:37 pm (UTC)
I know what you mean. Probably feels similar to being told your son is destined to be a gang-banger because everyone else of his color is. It's unfair, and hurtful, and generalizing, isn't it?
prime_radiant on July 25th, 2006 10:44 pm (UTC)
No, because the only thing that's unfair and hurtful and generalizing is a thing that is used against rx_suicide. Everyone else on the internet just need to buck up and realize that words are JUST words! Except, of course, rx_suicide, who gets to weep her eyes out on booju.
Chelsearx_suicide on July 25th, 2006 10:48 pm (UTC)
Becoming a gang-banger is something that is TAUGHT and can be CHANGED.

Having your ovaries removed at the age of 14 because of adhesions and tumors is something that IS NOT taught and CAN NOT be changed, thanks.
prime_radiant on July 25th, 2006 10:49 pm (UTC)
Skin color can't be changed. Having your family killed by the Nazis can't be changed, THANKS.

The color of someone's skin CAN NOT BE CHANGED. Making sweeping generalizations and using the n word is making fun of SOMETHING THAT CAN NOT BE CHANGED.
