    Anonymous said: Just saying, if you're so fucked up mentally that this is a concern for you maybe you shouldn't be having kids? Someone who is having panic attacks isn't going to be a good mom. If you're this concerned about your mental health suffering when pregnant, you won't be able to put your kids first because you'll be having panic attacks and shit.

    Thank you, Doctor Anonymous! You’ve made everything so much clearer now! We should not let anyone with anxiety disorders or who is prone to panic attacks reproduce! Because they’d be terrible parents!

    Oh wait, no.

    That’s bullshit.

    imageJust saying

    (In reference to this post I made)

    Oh, lovely, more people who think that- even if I want to reproduce someday- I shouldn’t.

    Yup. Because apparently, ADHD, Aspergers and PTSD mean I’ll be an unfit mother.

    Seriously, people.

    I genuinely think people who think like this are probably children themselves who have had almost no interaction with the outside world.

    We’d be pretty fucked if having a mental disorder means you shouldn’t have kids because your actually the MAJORITY of people are likely to suffer mental illness at some point than not.
    Also post natal mental illness is a thing, what do women do when they develop anxiety ( or whatever else) after already giving birth? Give the child up because she obviously is s bad mother?

A pregnant woman has had her baby forcibly removed by caesarean section by social workers.
Essex social services obtained a High Court order against the woman that allowed her to be forcibly sedated and her child to be taken from her womb. The council said it was acting in the best interests of the woman, an Italian who was in Britain on a work trip, because she had suffered a mental breakdown.

If you are not absolutely terrified and outraged by this you are wrong. The precedent this sets put every person on earth in danger.

oh my god read the article this is FUCKING HORRIFIC. she got back on her bipolar disorder medication and is in recovery but they won’t give her her child back “because of the risk she might relapse”. What you’re fucking saying with that is that mentally ill people shouldn’t even be allowed children even if they’re safe and well *just in case*, that we’re a permanent threat to ourselves and others even when we’re in treatment and recovery and living a stable life. I am FUCKING LIVID

Over a fucking panic attack. I’m fucking serious, all of this over a single panic attack. They took her baby in the most horrific way possible because she had a fucking panic attack.
From the Article:

She suffered a panic attack, which her relations believe was due to her failure to take regular medication for an existing bipolar condition.

It’s worth noting, that it’s very common for people on psychiatric medication to go off of their meds if they become pregnant, because of risk of side effects. 

I bolded the above. I wanted there to be no one to think that she was being irresponsible for not haven taken her meds regularly. She did it for good reason, for the health of her own baby. And she got punished for it.

i fucking cant

So she did what was best for her kid, has ONE SINGLE PANIC ATTACK WHICH IS A THING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE WHETHER THEY HAVE A MENTAL ILLNESS OR NOT and decide that they can literally violate her body in a horrific manner and take her kid away. But she’s the dangerous one.

Terribly sad. I hope this gets worked out in her benefit.

I can’t even imagine how terrifyingly awful that situation had to have been. Forcing a woman, against her will, to undergo sedation and then waking up in pain, without the fetus you’ve been carrying for 9 months? That’s beyond the pale. How much do the rights of an unborn fetus circumvent the rights of a full-grown adult? How much do we have to other the mentally ill, treating them (us) as less than human? She was literally treated like a breeding animal, with no cause of concern for her safety, mental health or well-being. Fuck. Fuck.

This is literally the stuff that horror movies are made of.
When K was relating this story to me, I couldn’t believe it until I read the article for myself. Have we really gotten to the point that a woman who, even just from the stress of being pregnant, has a panic attack can legally have her baby ripped out of her body and be thrown into a mental institution? Did we slip back into the 19th century, because I don’t recall any horse-drawn buggies going by outside.
This is why we need mental health reform. This is why we need women’s rights. This is why we need to treat fellow humans like fucking humans, not livestock to be cast aside when they seem a little “off.”
Likewise, fuck.

As someone who is pregnant and also struggling with mental illness, this story is going to give me nightmares for weeks. o_o

absolutely horrifying omg

This terrifies the fuck out of me. And it should you.


After having my son I was suffering at least 10 panic attacks a day and got post natal depression to the point i attempted suicide and I was put into a mental health hospital 9 days post partum but oh look I still have my son with me in my care I’m his main caregiver wtf

Be proud of who you are!

This literally called women pieces of meat. Pieces of meat that exist for someone else’s pleasure. It also says there’s something wrong with being shiny and that there is nothing attractive about that which is basically the same as someone saying something about bigger girls.

    Been in hospital since 8:15, it’s now 14:12, that was the hardest 6 hours I’ve ever been through.. Going through that sheer amount of pain and being on the brink of throwing up for god knows how long, even with an injection to stop the sickness.
    Had to try get moving to…

    Equality FTW is the HPA’s annual member-driven fundraiser. Thanks to member support last year, we were able to do some pretty amazing things for equality, such as:

    • Make over 3,000 calls for marriage equality in Maine. Spoiler alert: IT PASSED!

    • Collect and donate over 30,000 books and launch our own library program

    • Help pass the Maryland DREAM Act and start Superman Is An Immigrant, which collects and shares immigration stories from our community

    We’ve had a lot of success, but this fight for equality is not over and we need your help to continue our work.

    We’re running an Indiegogo fundraiser until October 12th where you can donate to help us fund another year of equality initiatives and, in return, get some of the hecka sweet rewards pictured above.  Do it to support equality or do it for the Hank Green kickball. Either way, we super appreciate it. 

    Donate now at EqualityFTW.org

    I have a quick little experiment. If you believe that trans* women and cis women are both women (you can have any genitals and still be a woman), then please reblog! 

    If you disagree, please reblog this one here.

    Not even going to look at the other one, I know I’m gonna be mad.

    There is only one note.

    a male celebrity can literally beat his girlfriend half to death and still enjoy a successful career with millions of adoring fans

    a female celebrity can gain a few pounds and she’s shunned, mocked, and ridiculed by thousands of people over many different mediums

    do you see the problem with this

Note how the most important facet of this story is not how she swam out and physically saved two people from drowning in a riptide at the risk of her own life, but that during the course of heroic physical activity in an outfit not designed for it, a tit slipped out.
Really? A nipple? A nipple made an appearance when she was dragging her son and a woman twice her size out of strong currents?
WELL HOLY SHIT, STOP THE MOTHER FUCKING PRESS

I… what? A woman rescues two people but you want to talk about the wardrobe malfunction. I haven’t had enough caffeine for this bullshit yet.

“But who worries about wardrobe malfunctions when your family is in danger?”
uh not normal people!
