Domestic Violence Permission Slips

Domestic Violence Permission Slips | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

We, as a society, give many permission slips to abusers, excusing their abuse, violence & control with claims of “understandable stressors.” Perhaps no category of these permission slips is larger, more pervasive, than the economical permission slips.

Unethical, Cruel, and Likely Illegal: Anti-Choicers Make Family's Tragedy Public Without Their Consent

Unethical, Cruel, and Likely Illegal: Anti-Choicers Make Family's Tragedy Public Without Their Consent | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it


Anti-choice activist Jill Stanek recently published online the name and photo of a woman who passed away following a late abortion at the Maryland clinic of Dr. Leroy Carhart. The name and picture of the woman, I’ll call her Marie, along with information about her job, marriage, and pregnancy were soon all over the internet.

Once again, a zealot believes themselves above the law. Shame! Shame!

That isn't really why she did it. And appropriate doesn't begin to cover it. What Jill Stanek did was, as the author said, immoral. I is beyond me how people who call themselves Christian can have so little compassion.
Deanna Dahlsad's comment, March 5, 2013 12:41 AM
The only concern Jill Stanek has regarding "the complications women have from abortions" is that she believes these women do not suffer enough. It's not just that she doesn't want women to have abortions (I think that's a prayer every person has), but Stanek works to create a world in which no woman would be allowed to have one. Removing choice isn't just removing our fundamental right under the United States Constitution, it isn't just a matter of socio-economic class (i.e. the wealthy go elsewhere to get them), but taking away Choice is to work towards the death of more women. The next time some pro-lifer goes to vote that platform, they should accept the fact that they are voting for more women to die.

If we are going to be sex positive, we need to understand the realities ~ including just how far the fundamental extremists are willing to go. Please read the comments!

Letter from Another Jane Doe

Letter from Another Jane Doe | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

Guest post by Lenora Davis [Note: Trigger warning for rape.]  

 

I can’t remember what was worse: the denial or the guilt. For months I walked around numb, refusing to acknowledge what had happened, refusing to give it a name, to refer to it, because once I said it, it would become real.

The day that he raped me was the worst day of my life. He dehumanized me, he made me feel little and helpless and vulnerable.

Have we become such fear-bots that denying rape culture is more politically expedient than compassion and corrective action?

The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same: Let's Talk About Domestic Violence

The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same: Let's Talk About Domestic Violence | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

For today, we don't even have the right to enjoy our homes, our private spaces, without fearing violence, rape, or worse. And when we dare to point that out, we are not merely dismissed, we are punished.

So many of us are still having to say, "That's life."
