Should I press charges against my student? - education highschool theft | Ask MetaFilter #4440660
"Here's what 'pressing charges' would mean where I live: ...
"If they found him on a Saturday he'd be held for two days before he got to court. Then a total stranger (this is my job) would meet him in a holding cell where he be separated from everyone else by bulletproof glass. Still in the shackles. That person would tell him that she's his lawyer. His first question 95% of the time would be, is my mom here? And his lawyer doesn't know the answer to that question. The second question, again the overwhelming majority of the time, would be, when am I going to get to go home? And again his lawyer doesn't know the answer to that question."

first published 1945:
"Less well known is the paradox of tolerance: Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.
...
"We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant. We should claim that any movement preaching intolerance places itself outside the law, and we should consider incitement to intolerance and persecution as criminal, in the same way as we should consider incitement to murder, or to kidnapping, or to the revival of the slave trade, as criminal."

The Gullah Geechee's fight against 'cultural genocide' - Al Jazeera English
"We're not shocked when African Americans, regular Americans, people from around the world say, 'We thought all black people in America lost all their cultural traditions,'" Goodwine says. She believes that perception arises from a systematic devaluation of black people, starting with slavery. "That was the plan: to programme you to believe you never had a culture, that you never came from rich kingdoms, from people who created math systems and science systems."
...
"What you see when you come to Charleston is sweetgrass baskets. It's an easy sell. Anybody can sell that," he concludes. "But can you sell the pain? Do you want to tell that story? I think it needs to be told, but they don't want to tell it. They don't want to ruffle feathers."

Bill Nye: Can We Stop Telling Women What to Do With Their Bodies? | Big Think
"Many, many, many, many more hundreds of eggs are fertilized than become humans... But that’s not all you need. You have to attach to the uterine wall, the inside of a womb, a woman’s womb. But if you’re going to hold that as a standard, that is to say if you’re going to say when an egg is fertilized it’s therefore has the same rights as an individual, then whom are you going to sue? Whom are you going to imprison?"

The New, Ugly Surge in Violence and Threats Against Abortion Providers | MetaFilter #6300938
long good comment (partial excerpt here)

...
I hold that the "life starts at conception" model of life, that presents life as a set of instructions rather than a specific, embodied, material entity, is in fact of itself anti-woman, anti-worker, and anti-human. I say this because it neglects the role of work in the making of a human, specifically the grueling, health-wrecking, dangerous work done by women's bodies in realizing a baby through following the fertilized zygote's instructions for babymaking. Because the (fundamentally Platonist) "life from conception" model presents instructions as perfect and complete in and of themselves — as already alive — the only contributions the mother makes are understood as negative. By doing the wrong thing, or eating the wrong thing, or aborting the process of baby-making, a woman might screw up her baby, but all of her positive work done in turning a set of instructions into a real baby is ignored. This is because the baby is already real, in this model, even when it's just a set of instructions and not much else. No woman required, at least not once she's provided the half-set of instructions found in her egg.

Tiger Beatdown › Lives worth living: Disability, abortion, and slipshod ethics
"Inevitably, the fact that it’s possible to test for many common disabilities means that abortion for disability is going to come up as a topic. This is a fraught ethical subject, and it’s fraught in no small part because of the social devaluation of disability. On the right, people with disabilities are fetishised as tools and instruments to a larger end; conservatives make sweeping statements about ‘respecting life’ when it comes to fetuses who might be born with disabilities, though of course they do nothing to support those fetuses once they’re born. This rhetoric does not allow room for the fundamental humanity of people with disabilities. Meanwhile, the left treats us like we don’t exist and aren’t a part of society, and don’t belong in society, frequently advancing arguments like Sierra’s: that abortion for disability is, quote, ‘a positive moral choice.‘
...
"What I am pushing for is disability as a value-neutral status that individual disabled people, not the people around them, get to make of what they will. Maybe that means celebrating your amazing body. Maybe that means corrective surgery. Maybe that means something else entirely."

The Official Guide to Legitimate Rape: myriad: The real goal of the...
"The real goal of the "forcible" rape clause: conservatives are looking at the end game. They envision a time when abortion is illegal in all states, except in cases of rape, incest, or life of the mother. If a rape has to be "forcible" to count, women will have to provide proof that they were forced: bruising, trauma, injury. Since a woman won't know she's pregnant until weeks after the rape, she'll have to have gathered that proof (like a rape kit with photos) at time of conception. This will effectively block all but the most proactive victims of violent rape from receiving abortions.

"The "legitimate" rape idea is even worse: if you're pregnant, it wasn't actually rape, therefore, no abortion!"

How the ‘war on women’ quashed feminist stereotypes - The Washington Post
"The image of the feminist as a mirthless, hirsute, sex-averse succubus is a friendly-fire casualty of the Republican 'war on women.' It's a grave loss to conservatives, who have used this faithful foot soldier as a comfortably grotesque stand-in for the real people whose liberties they have sought to conscribe: women."
"In activism, an image problem becomes a structural problem: Twisted but resonant stereotypes make women hesitant to identify with the movement to expand their rights. And if women won’t organize and advocate on their own behalf, the work of anti-feminists is done."
"In 2012, the anti-everything platform was occupied not by feminist agitators but the GOP politicians they were battling."
