A very inspiring Story: must read BEAUTIFUL STORY MUST READ @islamleveryone A Man Named Rashed This is a true story about a man named Rashed. He tells his story as follows… I was not more than thirty years old when my wife gave birth to my first child. I still remember that night. I had stayed out all night long with my friends, as was my habit. It was a night filled with useless talk, and worse, with backbiting, gossiping, and making fun of people. I was mostly the one who made people laugh; I would mock others and my friends would laugh and laugh. I remember on that night that I’d made them laugh a lot. I had an amazing ability to imitate others – I could change the sound of my voice until I sounded exactly like the person I was mocking. No one was safe from my biting mockery, even my friends; some people started avoiding me just to be safe from my tongue. I remember on that night, I had made fun of a blind man who I’d seen begging in the market. What was worse, I had put my foot out in front him – he tripped and fell, and started turning his head around, not knowing what to say. I went back to my house, late as usual, and I found my wife waiting for me. She was in a terrible state, and said in a quivering voice, β€œRashed… where were you?” β€œWhere would I be, on Mars?” I said sarcastically, β€œWith my friends of course.” She was visibly exhausted, and holding back tears, she said, β€œRashed, I’m so tired. It seems the baby is going to come soon.” A silent tear fell on her cheek. I felt that I had neglected my wife. I should have taken care of her and not stayed out so much all those nights… especially since she was in her ninth month. I quickly took her to the hospital; she went into the delivery room, and suffered through long hours of pain. I waited patiently for her to give birth… but her delivery was difficult, and I waited a long time until I got tired. So I went home and left my phone number with the hospital so they could call with the good news. An hour later, they called me to congratulate me on the birth of Salem. I went to the hospital immediately. As soon as they saw me, they asked me to go see the doctor who had overlooked my wife’s delivery. β€œWhat doctor?” I cried out, β€œI just want to see my son Salem!” Continues πŸ‘‡

Anaconda, Bad, and Feminism: Early Feminists: Oh hey, we see that you can vote. We would like to vote also. I mean, since most of those laws effect us too and all Me YOU JUST WANT SUPERIORITY OVER MEN! Mid-century Feminists: Hey, that whole thing about how you can have careers and earn a living wage outside the home? Yes that sounds nice, we'd 1ike the option to do that as well. Men: YOU WANT A MATRIARCHY, THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT! Late 20th century Feminists: Hey we would like to make our own choices about ou reproductive health, just like you've always had. Men YOU ARE TRYING TO TAKE MEN'S RIGHTS AWAY! Modern-day feminists: Hey, if you could you stop sexually assaulting/harassing us and then blaming us for it, that'd be pretty great. Men: THIS IS MISANDRY, MISANDRY I SAY! FEMINISTS HAVE GONE TOO FAR! Feminists: Um Men: THE END OF MEN IS NIGH MALE OPPRESSION IS REAL! THE MATRIARCHAL AGE IS UPON US! Repost from @galaxyfeminism Β· and yes obviously *not all men* are like this, this is talking about those who are & how the feminist movement has continuously been met with opposition and hate. That's why it is frustrating when people now say "I support early feminist movements but I hate what feminism is now." That means "when it was explicitly stated in the law that women had fewer rights, that was bad, but now that women can vote and own land they just need to stop complaining about other sexist things because some women in other countries can't even vote!!!1!" Saying you have gender equality because women in your country have more rights than women in other countries is like saying you did well on the test because you got a 50% but some people got a 30% so it's okay. Strive for 100%. Let's hold ourselves to a higher standard than defining equality as "it's not explicitly stated that you don't have certain rights (*except in certain cases where local laws do restrict access to birth control-bodily autonomy or try to ban trans people from bathrooms or try to restrict rights of LGTBQ+ people)." Equality under the law doesn't necessarily result in actual equal treatment, whether you're looking at discrimination based on race, religion, gender, class, sexuality, etc. This is especially noticeable regarding race and the treatment of black people in the US, as when slavery became illegal the prison system became an institution that essentially legalized slavery (if you are not familiar with this, watch "13th" or Google "why the us prison system is legalized slavery"). And just because something is legal doesn't mean it's ethical, let's not pretend the government is the epitome of morality πŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒ

Being Alone, Anaconda, and Children: baby-dahlia: Here's the thing about being pro choice that people don't get... You don't have to morally agree with abortion to be pro choice. That's why it's not called pro abortion. It's an understanding that you can't make that choice for someone else and they have full control over that not you. It's pro l'm not the boss of everyone else. This is important. my exact feelings on this subject. This is a good thing to send people who think pro choice means you love abortions and think everyone should get abortions. Pro choice people are not "baby killers," we are not eagerly waiting for the next abortion to happen. Abortions are not fun, and the decision to have an abortion isn't one people look forward to making, no matter how "feminist" they are. Some people agonize over the decision, and for some people, it's an obvious decision to make because they know they cannot (financially or otherwise) raise a child. For a more ~advanced critique~ of this post, there shouldn't be a "moral agreement" with abortion because it's not a one-size-fits-all case. What I mean by that is, you can't say you're against abortions when you don't know the circumstances leading pregnant people to get abortions. It is easy to sit on a high horse and say "I would never have an abortion because I can afford to raise a child healthily, and my mom can help me raise the child while i go to college." What if you have no support, you can barely keep yourself fed and housed despite working 3 jobs, and you know you couldn't raise a child adequately (and don't say adoption because there are currently over 100,000 foster children eligible for & waiting to be adopted in the US alone- and children who are not white, who are disabled, etc get adopted way less than white able bodied children). Or what if you could support a child but you're not ready to? There's a perception that every pregnant person wants to have a child & immediately falls in love with their baby when they give birth; that is not always true. You raising a child you don't want is not a healthy environment for a child to be in. Basically, it's not possible to define a moral line here- if you're ok with abortion if the pregnant person is raped, but not if the person had consensual sex with their partner, then you're still saying "I don't want you to have control over your own body, BUT if you're raped then I guess you can have control this one time." Having the right to decide what YOU do with YOUR OWN BODY should not be conditional.
