Cold approach fucking creeps

This guy just came up to me in the train station, I’m wearing headphones and reading. I hear through my headphones, “I have a question,” and I physically backed away and said “No, thank you” and he stepped toward me again, and my face reddened and I said “No, thank you. Sorry.” And he was like, “No, you don’t have to be scared. I just have a question.” And I’m like “Okay?” And he asked me how to get to the E train, and I told him one more stop on the next train that comes. And this other guy nearby comes over and asks me, “Is he messing with you?” And I’m like “Oh no, I was just caught off guard.” And that guy nodded and walked away. And guy with the question says, “why were you so scared, Mama? Any guy would ask your beautiful face a question. Where are you headed today? You wanna ride with me?” and FML there it was. I knew it!! He could’ve asked any other fucking person standing there with no headphones in, but he goes for the cold approach to someone clearly not at attention, and continues on after convincing me AND someone else he is only asking a question… AND knows that I was initially scared and not okay with how he came up to me. Thankfully, the train came and I darted to a different car without another word. Although I was worried he might follow me, he didn’t.

Fucking pig creeps seriously. Like it’s not sweet. Leave clearly occupied women the fuck alone and back off when we are visibly and verbally uninterested in your approach. It’s that simple.

Everywhere, imperceptibly or otherwise, things are passing, ending, going. And there will be other summers, other band concerts, but never this one, never again, never as now. Next year I will not be the self of this year now. And that is why I laugh at the transient, the ephemeral; laugh, while clutching, holding, tenderly, like a fool his toy, cracked glass, water through fingers.

Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)

The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.

If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves

There is also the Abortion Pill (Mifepristone).  It can be taken up to 9 weeks (but is most effective up to 7 weeks and check the laws in your state). It is comparable to a miscarriage and after getting the intial dosage from your medical service provider, you take the rest at home and go through the process at home.

This is super important, valuable information that I think many people don’t know. Also, when you go to an abortion clinic (I at least know this is true for Planned Parenthood) there’s a counseling meeting where you discuss the alternatives with a doctor and sign a consent form saying that abortion is what you really want. A lot of people who oppose abortion will want to tell you that abortion clinics and reproductive health centers will try to convince you to have the abortion, but that’s just not true. (I mean, only 3% of Planned Parenthood’s services are abortions. Family planning and community health centers like Planned Parenthood are often more concerned with prevention and awareness and other aspects of health. They’re more interested in helping you have options than they are in only giving you the one.)

Nor is it true that any medical center will throw the embryo away in a dumpster after the procedure. I’m sure none of you really thought that, but slander is a vicious thing that spreads and becomes true in the eyes of those who want to believe it because it fits into their agenda.

Additionally: know your rights. When I worked at Planned Parenthood, I learned that protesters are not allowed to be in front of the building or in the parking lot. They have to stay on the sidewalk, further away from the building. They are not supposed to try to convince you not to go into the building, nor can they physically block you from going in or follow you inside. You have to be let in by someone already in the building, which means that any appointment you have there - counseling, a check-up, a mammogram, an abortion, a testing - will be confidential and safe.
