I understand you don’t want that baby, but you should just toughen up and go through pregnancy! After, you can give the baby to foster parents, or anything, JUST PLEASE DONT KILL THEM.
and risk abuse and besides pregnancy and birth is expensive and dangerous- Riley
"You should just toughen up"
"I understand you don’t want that baby but you should just pretend there isn’t a safe, legal way to get rid of it and go through 9 months of hell and the most painful physical process of your life instead so that I feel better. You know, ‘toughen up’.”
Because there’s no male figure in the home is deeply misogynist and sexist
Not trying to be “that guy”, but there are male single parent homes too.
And those typically aren’t the ones with stigma attached to them. Are…
Ok but that wasn’t the point if the post. And I don’t think two parents of opposite genders make a difference. Children need a community of loving adults. Nuclear families are far to small to really nurture individuals in my opinion since we’re deviating away from the point of the post.
"All single parent homes get a lot o stigma" sure thing @antarcticanking but there’s no worldwide industry and network specifically targeting and trafficking from single FATHERS. There aren’t major “public health” campaigns that slut shame single fathers. When white supremacist “scientists” pathologized single parents & offspring as “mentally unfit” and a literal danger to humanity, guess which half of the gender binary they went in on.
Oh, I KNOW all single parents gets stigmatized. Us Developing World(tm) bastards get classified as orphans just by living in a single parent household, even if both our parents and entire family are still alive. Which (to build on howtobeterrell’s point) is especially convenient if one wants to wipe out our birth cultures that have a much healthier and community-oriented approach to raising children than the dumbshit Western über-heteronormative capitalist nuclear family model. Tobias Hübinette wrote a great piece on how this model purposefully colonizes and destroys non-Western communities.
But this "ALL single parented homes are stigmatized" is just derailing. The assault on single motherhood (especially black and brown motherhood) is unprecedented.

I’ve said before, calling out is a gift. It is a sign of respect. Because it means the oppressed person believes the oppressor can change.
100% true. i only call out ppl i fucks w/ and respect and only expect it from the same. white ppl and nameless faceless ppl calling me out is just not a thing i entertain
it is most DEFINITELY a gift and those who get called out should be most grateful that oppressed persons are bothering to expend the time…
but I’m pretty sure that I’m not alone here in that when I call out folks, it’s far more for the benefit of those around me who are also oppressed. In refusing to remain silent, I’m decolonizing my mind and fighting for the mental & spiritual health of myself and those I love, who are branded “angry/disordered/murderous" simply for not fitting one’s entire existence into disgustingly abusive status quos
This is a glorious post and OP is on point, I just think the oppressor’s problem to begin with is that they think it’s all about them. It isn’t, and IDGAF about educating much less changing them — that’s not our job, and my words are not for them. X
