a thing to do, is to try and turn a bad thing into a good thing, or at least a neutral thing. it takes away some of the negativity and gives you something to grow with.
i feel like i have been abandoning this blog but i think that might be because i’ve been feeling better and better.
my panics are becoming less and less frequent
i don’t hate myself, i’m ok
my bad days are few and far between

i’m going to try and get some more to do’s up and keep posting, there is a 70% chance i will start dedicating this to my photography/ reusing this url for my photography :)
While I agree that forcing a woman to carry a pregnancy that is the result of rape is an even further assault on women’s bodily integrity, the foundation of a rape exception is that some women “deserve” abortions and some don’t. The underlying message is pretty clear - a woman who has been forced to have sex has done nothing wrong, a woman who had consensual sex has. (Bill Napoli’s now-infamous example of a “sodomized virgin” comes to mind.”)
Other restrictions and attempted limits on abortion access prove just as transparent. In 2007, for example, legislators in Ohio pushed a bill that would have mandated women get a written note from the father of the fetus before being able to obtain an abortion. If they didn’t know who the father was, they would not be allowed to access the procedure. This is about humiliating women and making the decision to have an abortion as difficult as possible.
