I can’t believe this is what our president and vice president spend their time on. We’re in 15 trillion dollars of debt, and millions of people are homeless, and abortion is still legal, and instead of signing bills to fix these things our president is doing this. Well I’m glad you’re having fun, you fucking bitch. Fuck the United States. /rant

Ah yes, the German floofkätzchen bier. 

Very light and refreshing, a good summer beer.

I feel like this is the ultimate

tumblr post. It has beer and a cat, and we can say that the sword is just out of frame.

FLOOFKÄTZCHEN

That’s one cool cat!

  • Me: Oh, hey whoa, this shower is occupied.
  • Spider: Omg man I didn't see you there.
  • Me: We cool?
  • Spider: Yeah, yeah, we're cool. I'm just coming down to scope out the tub.
  • Me: Oh, that's legit. Hey, you might wanna move over some--you're descending right into the shower stream and I don't want you to drown.
  • Spider: Hey thanks, bud. I'll be careful.
  • Me: So...can I get out now?
  • Spider: Sure, sure! Sorry I'll just move over here.
  • Me: Thanks. You have a nice night. Don't come into my bedroom, okay?
  • Spider: Nah, that's your space. We're cool. Have a great evening.

…someone who wants her living room back. 

Today, I finally put stuff in the attic, including the folded moving boxes, my suitcase, old binders, extra bed linens, and the boxes for our Berlin Wall Heads by Thierry Noir. 

I couldn’t take looking at the mess anymore. And I didn’t want to make Boyfriend lift ALL the things. 

So I’m pretty proud of myself. Now to just go through the stuff in the basement slowly, and I should be all moved in. It took much less time than I anticipated.

Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust.

She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them.

She saved hundreds of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”.

After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.

I want to nail this to the forehead of every anti-abortionist who uses the word “Holocaust” when talking about legal abortions.

I wrote about a bit of this in that essay on genocidal rape and historical and legislative avoidance of the matter. The one that got the award. These kinds of experiences were typical of the women in the concentration camps, but this is exactly the kind of thing that has been hidden from history because they are not seen as the ‘typical’ experience… which means that it is is not the man’s experience. These sort of stories are considered too womeny and too subjective to be safely reported in ‘objective ’ history. It’s fucking bullshit.

This is the most wonderful/awful story I’ve read. What a brave woman. Those women never should have become pregnant (because they shouldn’t have been imprisoned or raped, etc.), but this woman saved their lives and went on to give the gift of life to 3,000 people. This is like a flower growing in a desert.
