What about my plastic footprint?

Do your country act like it is aware of its plastic footprint? If no, start voting in people in power, who actually have plans to deal with the consumption of plastic.

Even better if they are working on proposing legislation that already works with some efficiency other places and is supported by science, professionals and statistics. Or if they want to invest in changing the threat humans are to the climate.

Words apparently don’t come easy, baby, embroy, fetus, woman, the what is what guide

Anti-abortions, anti-choice or pro-birth people are notoriously bad at seperating their use of words to the right context of the meaning of the words. So here is a short list of the actual meaning of words.

It is criminal to murder both babies and women, since both are already born and persons in their own right.

Murder is a criminal act, so it does not apply to legal abortion.

When a pregnant woman is murdered it is called double homicide, because it happened in context of committing a crime against the woman. A fetus or embryo is not in this context either considered a legal person. The woman is considered a person with legal rights.

Cuticy of the Merriam-Webster dictionary:

Embryo : an animal in the early stages of growth and differentiation that are characterized by cleavage, the laying down of fundamental tissues, and the formation of primitive organs and organ systems, especially : the developing human individual from the time of implantation to the end of the eighth week after conception
Most abortions happens medically in the embryo stage, when the embryo is barely the size of a walnut.

Fetus : an unborn or unhatched vertebrate especially after attaining the basic structural plan of its kind, specifically : a developing human from usually two months after conception to birth
The rest of the abortions happens in the early fetus stage, before it has a fully developed system.
A rare few abortions happens later due to unexpected health issues.

Baby : an extremely young child, especially : infant
A baby can not be aborted or be unborn, since it developed into a baby at birth. Murdering a baby is a crime, because it is a person in its own right.

Woman : an adult female person
There is no such thing as an unborn or aborted woman.


Why I agree with FEMINISM

There is no me in feminism, it is about us, all of us.

To me it is about equality for all, about equal opportunity, about standing in solidarity with those that have less of it and fighting inequity and income disparity. It is about making legislation equal to all, law enforcement equal to all and accountability equal to all, despite a persons gender identity, sexual preference, race or starting point in life.

5% of all men are responsible for 60% of all violence. This makes violent men a real issue, and even though it is not about all men, there is a 1 out of 20 chance that the man in front of you is violent. This is a real problem, one that puts women (and men and children) into hospitals and into the grave. So yes, men are violent, because statistically it is so. If you personally are not a violent man, if you do not have control issues, if you never used a fist, bat or beer bottle to end an argument, then you are smart enough to know that you are among those other 95% that choose to not turn to his fists first, right?

I love men. I love boys. I love grumpy old bastards. My father, my brothers, my “spouse” through the past 28 years, my gamer friends, my colleagues (you know who you are), my neighbors, my favorite actors, singers and producers and developers. I love them for their minds, their creative inputs into my life, their zest and inspiration.

I don’t need feminism to seek justice for those wronged. But I am not a fool, why not seek justice in solidarity with those of like minds, rather than rage against injustice alone? The pen is mightier than the sword, and good stuff is best enjoyed in company.

I am aware of the difference between a “bad” and a “good” person.

Feminism have climbed walls, but we are still climbing mountains.

In my humble opinion, anti-feminism is corrupting the world.

Africa Check

Africa Check is a non-profit organisation set up in 2012 to promote accuracy in public debate and the media in Africa. The goal of their work is to raise the quality of information available to society across the continent.

As former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan says: “For democracies to function properly, for people to make informed decisions about their lives, the claims made in the public domain must be held up to scrutiny and their veracity checked openly and impartially.

“I salute the work of Africa Check, as an important initiative engaging with journalists and citizens across the continent to raise the level of public debate.”
