jungle-fruit asked: Hi, I was just wondering if you could please explain how feminisim leaves women "defenseless and keeping them ignorant" ??
They don’t seem to keen on teaching women how to defend themselves against attackers. They’d rather TSS around phrases like “victim blaming” and saying we need to teach men not to rape. As if we didn’t already. I would rather a woman carry something to use to defend herself and avoid situations that attract predators rather than use some bullshit rhetoric that makes no sense.
mother-of-hounds asked: please stop calling zygotes and early stage fetuses "babies", it's emotional manipulation and it's not okay. you're romanticising and applying feelings and thoughts to an organism that simply isn't capable of such. the only reason to call a fetus a "baby" is if the mother is totally psyched for the baby she WILL have and wants to call it as such. :)
Please stop using words like zygotes and fetuses to excuse murdering unborn humans. Those words describe stages if development for mammals, including humans. And they have the right to life at those stages, too. After all, every pro-abort person was once at that stage in their development.
miracule asked: just out of curiosity, have you ever been outside the US?
I’ve been to Mexico and Canada.
Anonymous asked: Why don't people adopt older Children? Are they not worth love?
They are certainly deserving of a loving home!
I can’t answer for all adopting couples. I hope to adopt an older child someday myself, precisely because of this problem.
I believe that a lot of couples who choose to adopt are looking for a child they can raise from infancy to adulthood. They are, through adoption, building the family they’ve been dreaming of but that they for some reason can’t or don’t want to build biologically.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with adoptive parents being somewhat selective about who they adopt. Only they know their situation and whether a particular kid would be a good fit for them.
I would, however, encourage adoptive couples, especially those who have been waiting for a baby, to consider adopting an older child who might not get adopted otherwise. They are still in a crucial part of their development and need a stable, supportive family.
Yes, older children need these things, the are adopted less and less not just because of the infant bond but because of the developmental problems that come with them. Older children who need homes tend to have developmental disorders such as RAD and ODD. These are hard to deal with and take a lot of intervention. This doesn’t mean that people shouldn’t adopt them, it just means those who do need to be prepared for these problems and ready to work with therapists and the child to get through it.
noseywintonian asked: I don't live in your country.
Where do you live?
noseywintonian asked: And how many women do you think still die in childbirth? (I'll give you a clue, a lot more than people who die from legal abortions). x
Would you care to show me where you got this statistic?
