Forever reblogging this.

And the fact that there’s more than one company means several people called makes it even better.

Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.

Since this apparently needs to be said again:

CONSENT TO SEX IS NOT CONSENT TO 9 MONTHS OF PREGNANCY AND SUBSEQUENT CHILDBIRTH.

CONSENT TO SEX IS NOT CONSENT TO 9 MONTHS OF PREGNANCY AND SUBSEQUENT CHILDBIRTH.

CONSENT TO SEX IS NOT CONSENT TO 9…

Say it as many times as you want, even until you’re blue in the face. Prima facie it is false and will remain false until you give anything resembling a reasoning.

Fine. Ongoing acts require ongoing consent. Pregnancy is an ongoing act, and forcing someone to remain pregnant when they have revoked their consent is wrong. The one time act of becoming pregnant (conception) could be seen as being consented to by sex, but certainly not almost a year of pregnancy and childbirth at the end. Your move.

>Ongoing acts require ongoing consent

Arbitrary rule just for supporting your point. If you know that something is going to happen ahead of time and agree to it, you do not need to keep agreeing to it. That’s how basic contracts work (for example) in the music industry. Even if the artist changes their mind and disagrees with the terms of the contract, after it’s signed there’s little they can do about it, only take the company to court for a breach of contract (if there is one). So please try again.

>forcing someone to remain pregnant when they have revoked their consent is wrong

I wasn’t aware forcing someone to take responsibility was wrong, please provide the logic for that thought.

>The one time act of becoming pregnant (conception) could be seen as being consented to by sex

So you do agree that consent to sex is consent to pregnancy? Then the agreement is made to carry a child if it develops, that is the natural clause for conception.

>but certainly not almost a year of pregnancy and childbirth at the end.

I’m sorry, but the real world entails real responsibility and it is almost never easy. It’s lucky that there’s a great way to avoid getting pregnant (hint: it’s not having sex, since you didn’t seem to get the hint the first time).

Your move.

A contract for a job is not comparable to control over your own body. The fact that you think they are is kind of shitty. A better comparison would be that if I consent to start having sex (since it’s an act that directly involves my body) and I say to stop and my partner doesn’t, that is a crime. A musician with a recording contract isn’t being forced to do something with their body that they don’t want to do. They can choose to violate their contract and not do whatever it is it says they have to do. A pregnant person cannot just opt out of pregnancy without having an abortion.

Funny how you talk about arbitrary and then refer to “responsibility” like it only means one thing. People have responsibilities to many things in their lives: family members, other children, dependants, etc. Have you ever seen that final episode of MASH where the woman smothers her baby because it was crying and would have given the rest of the group away? Before anyone starts saying I’m advocating infanticide, I am bringing this up as an example of responsibility to others. Every situation is different and the word “responsible” means different things for different people.

Yes, I forgot, the solution is just to not have sex. You know what the safest way to go skiing is? To not ski. I have less than zero interest in debating someone who just falls back on “well, don’t have sex” and says that a music contract is the same as a person’s right to their own body.

Honestly though, this conversation is so tired and pro lifers need to just accept that consent to one thing does not mean consent to whatever comes after that.

Allowing someone in your house, knowing that something could go wrong is not consent to them murdering you. You walking down the street is not you consenting to getting hit by a driver, but I mean we all know the risks of going outside, that theoretically could happen to anyone of us, so would you deny them medical care, because hey! You consented to going on a walk, you knew the consequences! 

If I were to go driving without my seat belt and I got hit, I am not refused medical service because I “should have known the consequences”, I did not consent to getting hit, I never agreed to it, even if I wasn’t wearing a seat belt. I am well aware of the risks of driving, that doesn’t mean I consent to letting someone hit me and refusing medical treatment -cylina
