"I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take side. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages, the tormentor, never the tormented."
-Elie Wiesel

WEIRD BECAUSE ELIE WIESEL ALSO SAID:
People who compare abortion to the Holocaust "prove that they do not know what the Holocaust was."

He also advocates for safe and legal abortion because he saw what lack of access to abortive medicine did to some of the people in the holocaust.  Pregnant people were usually killed upon arrival, rather than kept as sub-par workers.  
So trully, in the actual* holocaust, being caught pregnant was an automatic and immediate death sentence as soon as the guards discovered your condition.  While many able-bodies people were kept to work or to forcedly make products such as marching boots for the soldiers, pregnant people and people with young babies were killed as soon as possible.
Good logic, pro-lifers.
Why do you always use quotes by pro-choice people to try to defend your incorrect views? Cut it out. Cmon.

Fucking Holocaust comparisons piss me off.

The only thing that is ever comparable to the Holocaust is the actual Holocaust, not women’s personal choices omfg.

CAIRO, Egypt — Essam Bashary no longer goes to demonstrations. A liberal, he’s too disappointed by the way the Arab Spring has degenerated into a fight between military and Islamists in Egypt.

But the 26-year-old Tahrir Square veteran has found a new cause to occupy his time — fighting sexual harassment.

Egyptian women have been complaining about high levels of harassment for years, and a recent UN survey concluded that 99 percent of women in the country have either experienced unwanted physical advances or been verbally harassed. Despite this, convictions of perpetrators are rare.

A number of activist groups and NGOs are working to combat the problem, encouraging women to report incidents and calling for an end to the practice’s social acceptability.

Bashary has taken a different approach: Along with a group of friends — like him, former revolutionaries who previously supported Mohamed ElBaradei and his Constitution Party — he founded a social media initiative called “Tie up the Harasser.”

You see sexual harassment: Do you call the police, or tie up the perpetrator yourself?

In the books Renly and Loras being gay lovers was only alluded to, and known only by a handful of people. On the show, everyone in the Seven Kingdoms and their horse knows this, and spew an endless barrage of lowbrow gay jokes that I would’ve found beneath me as a teen.

I don’t get why Joffrey would openly insult Renly this way in front of the Tyrells, as it would remind ecerone of their duplicity. Then again, it was never established on the show, that when Renly’s armor appeared in the Battle of Blackwater, people thought it was his ghost, and Lannister/Tyrell propaganda spread the legend that his ghost had come to absolve his sin of treason by defending his King Joffrey at his most perilous hour from his murderous brother Stannis.

Lastly, they introduce a bisexual character and of course they have him making eyes with the only established gay character. Sigh. As a guy who likes guys, this pandering featuring one token gay love scene per season needs to stop. Not as bad last season where they had Loras who had just lost his lifelong best friend and lover instantly jump into bed with the first boy who sets off his gaydar and spill all his secrets to.

I’m fine with and even prefer most liberties taken with the source material. I just wish they would have Loras as a despondent man, who had lost the love of the life, who took the first chance he got to join the Kingsguard, and who distrusts the Martells because the Dornish are the historical enemies of The Reach especially Prince Oberyn who crippled his brother Wyllas. I don’t like this stereotypical gay man we’re presented with, who is sexually promiscuous and indiscriminate and vain.
