Today, I was banned from Twitter because someone reported a tweet in which I said “The anti-abortion movement in America is a war on women and everyone who supports the six week abortion ban can go fuck themselves.”
Apparently this is ‘abusive’ and ‘trying to silence a group of people’s opinions’.
You know what? I stand firm by my statement. My very first tweet when I am unbanned tomorrow will be a reaffirmation of my sentiments. I think they’re disgusting, vile, heartless, shameless, worthless pieces of shit who don’t deserve a platform to spread their vitriolic lies and anti-woman rhetoric?
Abortion should be safe, legal, and accessible. Hell, I even think it should be free. No woman who doesn’t want to be pregnant for ANY REASON should ever be forced to remain so. The anti-abortion movement only exists to punish women for being alive. I refuse to ever have sex with a man again because of the fear of becoming pregnant in a state that bans abortion. I’m bisexual so I have the luxury of going out with women, who can’t get me pregnant. But even if I was a straight, MARRIED woman, I wouldn’t touch my husband if he hadn’t had a vasectomy. Birth control of any form is not 100% effective and no woman who doesn’t want children should ever be forced to be pregnant. Hell, no woman who wants to adopt but never become pregnant should be forced to be pregnant. If you choose not to have an abortion, that’s great. But the CHOICE is what matters. You can be someone who would NEVER EVER have an abortion. But that’s your CHOICE.
And when I get back on twitter once the ban is lifted, you bet your ass I will only ever reaffirm that anti-choice supporters are the scum of the earth and don’t deserve the oxygen they are wasting trying to relegate women to property of the state of Georgia. Because that’s what that ban does. If you travel out of state to somewhere it is legal to have an abortion, you face charges of conspiracy to commit murder. By restricting interstate commerce, quite literally the law says any woman is property of the state.
Forced Birth Slavery is what these people are saying. Do I think they don’t deserve a platform to spread their lies and bullshit? Am I trying to silence them? Do I think they should be barred from public speech? Abso-fucking-lutely.
I DID IT! WOOOOOO!
Here’s hoping you guys can make good progress too!
I AM SO CLOSE OH MY GOD I MAY NOT BE DOWN TO THE WIRE FOR ONCE!!!!
YA GIRL IS GONNA DO IT Y’ALL!!!
So here’s the thing: I’m not PROUD of winning it by being a rebel and recording ALL my fictional written words, but I also acknowledge that, though I’ve never been formally diagnosed, since I was about 20 I’ve exhibited similar symptoms to ADD so on the off chance I am Adult ADD, maybe this is really as good as I could hope for on a year with multiple distractions?
Either way, I’m gonna hit 50,000 words in 30 days, which is a serious accomplishment. Even if it’s not 50,000 words on ONE project.
I’m gonna make it, but it’s not gonna be as triumphant as it has been in previous years.
Oh well, c’est la vie!
So maybe I’ve missed a couple of days of updating the blog, but I have been writing! Since I decided to split my project into two parts I’ve been writing both of them pretty equally. I’m sure I can win this year still! YAY!
I had the hardest day at work there is. I don’t know WHY but there has never been a busier day than the day before thanksgiving at work. It’s ROUGH.
Sooooo I came home and chilled out. I didn’t write much and I don’t regret that. It’s just A HARD day and I want to unwind not work hard on writing.
Tomorrow, I’ll kick it into high gear!
So, I decided that since I’m actually working on two things, not just the main one, I’m going to count them both. I’m splitting my focus so why should I split my word count?
That is obviously not one day’s word count, but it is the adjustment to how much I’ve actually written in November. So, from now on, I will be including the combined totals of my November writing.
I didn’t take a screenshot because I essentially wrote about 80 words of my NaNo novel. However, I think I’m going to shift my challenge to that of “Rebel”.
I’m working on a side work at the same time and I know that’s stupid but when inspiration to continue something old hits I can’t ignore momentum.
Of that other work, I’ve written almost 10,000 words in November. I have check on the spot where I started writing this month.
I think I will combine the two word counts at the end because technically I am still going to write 50k words in a month. There’s nothing that days I HAVE to do a traditional NaNo project.
So, unless I hit 50k on the main story I will combine the total at the end of NaNo. Because I truly think split focus is why I’m so far behind.
