“Empowered choices make the best decisions,” we all agree on that. Right? But, which choice are we talking about?
Empowered choices sometimes make the “bestest” decisions possible in the course of a lifetime. Usually we call those “learning experiences” or mistakes, and because IF we were in an empowered position when we made them, well, we probably learned from that choice and the consequences it brought and we are better humans for it. Lessons learned through experience are most powerful, we all know that too, right?
Empowered choices make the epic decisions. Indeed, this is where we make choices as individuals that we may not otherwise make for ourselves, yet the impact of that decision on the world around us empowers everyone in that world to do better.
The right to choose is just such a choice. I do not agree with abortions, i think they are wrong, stupid and wtf did you do going to get yourself pregnant? Sometimes, choices were an uninspired, unempowered choice; sometimes, it wasn’t a choice at all, it was an oops, sometimes an “oh, shit, i need to sleep with this dude to get out of here and leave me alone,” sometimes its “i’m just too young and stupid to not get drunk at that frat party and, oh well, which guy was it?” sometimes its tragic like a rape, and sometimes, children have parents who use abortion as birth control, just because that’s all they know because that’s all they’ve been taught. All of these decision-makers are doing their “bestest,” which isn’t at a level of acceptability of mindfulness in my home, yet for so many others, this is just normal, it is not a crime.
We here sitting pretty our nice world where we think about things, where we don’t have that unfortunate set of circumstances to lead us down this road to an unwanted pregnancy can say: No, YOU cannot have the power to choose, I choose for you. What does that solve, the problem? No, it creates all the unwanted children we have today already and then some. The truth is, WE have the choice, whether they take it away or not, WE can have an abortion at anytime, WE always could, OUR doctors took care of such things for US.
The historic truth we do know is this, when abortion was illegal women died getting them. They died trying to get them. They died trying to live a life they couldn’t lead because they could not get them. Women died. All the time. Which choice again? Right to life?
So, anyone who says they are against the right to choose but does not attend every single school board meeting and city council meeting and direct the policy, mindset and moral compass and services for their community, has no right to say someone else doesn’t have the right to choose. You are neither trying to prevent pregnancies or empower a better life for those who are the ones usually taking the safe road to save their own lives in their circumstances, the bestest they know how. That’s what we do for them, EPICALLY. When we fail on the front end, we need to protect them on the backend. We are as strong as our weakest link and we cannot be shortsighted in our vision by our our personal beliefs and egos.
Because as a society, we choose for WOMEN, who are alive today, to LIVE. That is our first priority. Anything else is illogical, thus, not debatable.
Mostly, people power tripping over their beliefs, and personal opinions as to how much they can control someone else’s choices, they don’t really care really about the children, that is certain. Not really care, to the point where they are empowered to choose to create a different choice for anyone to experience here.
I will debate this issue with anyone who is fighting against state-directed abortions in nation-states such as India and China where wholesale aborting of girl babies is equal to genocide at the level it is happening. =)
I don’t know what “Bloggers” do, I know what I do, and I do it for my reasons — others have their ideas as to what those are, yet those people do not know me.
I use blogs to organize thoughts, ideas, pieces of me that are just a part of me, and since I have always “blogged” and used the internet and most of its incarnations for doing just that, this is just what I do. I sometimes just create a blog and write out an idea, sometimes getting back to it eventually, and sometimes leaving it for others may stumble along it and do the idea up righteously. Good luck following along.
So, I “closed” my NSFW NikIVTumblingAroundTumblr blog (stopping at 666 pages seemed right for this project), and I will now spend the next couple of months augmenting and editing it to be in its final form. I grew quite fond of my first “porn” blog site, with a mix in my feed that was always pushing all my favorite buttons, art, science, tech, space, peace, activism, sexy.
When Tumblr first came on the scene, i was like WHOA!!!! I signed up right away with an even more NSFW concept yet I found that I wasn’t ready to go down that path yet and that project still waits for me. When my teenage daughter said she was on Tumblr (FanDom Central!), I knew I had to jump into the mix somehow. I created NikiVTumblingAround and several other “interest” blogs on Tumblr, curated and found a feed with a happy medium to form a porn site I actually think I would enjoy randomly finding on the internet. That I curated a porn site would shock most of the people I actually know in real life, well, now that I think about it, maybe not anymore.
I have used my experience with this blog to inform my activism off-line as well as develop several other concepts relating to my perpetual online activism. My NSFW “URDaughtersFirstPortSite” is a blog that I’m developing an off-line component to introduce to my local community as more young men and ladies get into the naked selfie / sex video normalcy of this new reality. We already had one issue in our small community of this “tumblrworld mindset” where a cos-play online game brought in a young lady who got caught up way over her head, parents had no idea any of this world even existed, let alone that their daughter was involved.
Coming out of NikiVTumbingAround directly, are two blogs: (1) a password protected, Cocktale Hour, which will be even more intimate writings based on images that i enjoy, so a bit more comprehensive than my NSFW URpleasURe blog here on WordPress; and (2) Curing Cosmic Boredom, a considerably less racy than NikiVTumblingAround with a very specific intent of “looking 4 love on tumblr dot com.” While there are many parts of porn on the internet I just cannot support on General Principle, I find that most people engage in those realities as a form of stimulation because nothing in their lives are giving any real meaning, boredom basically. I think that’s why I include that reality now, unashamed and “part of the problem” to bring about a solution to the underlying causes.
Ok, I think I got all that straight, my NSFW blogospheric reality nutshell. And no, i’m not a cam girl. And no, I do not have a KIK account. And, no, i don’t blog for money (as strange as that may seem these days). And, no, unless you are my cosmic consort, you may not text me.
the best part about the Olympics is the international immersion into one really quite random, if not selected randomness, on our planet and that reality to host the rest of our planet. its not about the competition — which one location would focus the games on specifically. The Olympics is about HOW we compete with one another on planet earth first and foremost. The process of humanity is the journey, the Olympics must journey as well.
** of course, the article is over 500 words, but to be honest, I just had to confront the headline on its face with just a “WRONG!” I have no idea what the article actually communicated.
