Two teenage girls attempted to go in front of me for a photo and The Evil Queen said, “Excuse you, I do believe this young lady was here before you. Now step aside”. My love for her is endless.both are such babes
God help my blackened soul.
Brow game so fucking strong all round in this photo
Meryl Streep is my headcannon Mummy Holmes tbh.
Alan Rickman as Father Holmes!
Sherlock’s got his temper from somewhere.
don’t forget about how deep his voice can get too!!!
I can just picture Sherlock mocking his father all the time at family gatherings.
Tubmlr I love you
i hope one day you find somebody who loves you and accepts you no matter how flawed you are just like you do with your favorite fictional character. i hope one day you find somebody who treats you as if you were their favorite fictional character
"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.
Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died.
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.

But, assuming the mother wasn’t raped, the choice to HAVE a baby and risk sacrificing their “bodily autonomy” is a choice that the mother made. YOu don’t have to have sex with someone. Cases of rape aside, it isn’t ethical to say abortion is justified. The unborn baby has rights, too.
First point: Bodily autonomy can be preserved, even if another life is dependent on it. See again the example about the blood donation.
And here’s another point: When you say that “rape is the exception” you betray something FUNDAMENTALLY BROKEN about your own argument.
Because a fetus produced from sexual assault is biologically NO DIFFERENT than a fetus produced from consensual sex. No difference at all.
If one is alive, so is the other. If one is a person, so is the other. If one has a soul, then so does the other. If one is a little blessing that happened for a reason and must be protected, then so is the other.
When you say that “Rape is the exception” what you betray is this: It isn’t about a life. This isn’t about the little soul sitting inside some person’s womb, because if it was you wouldn’t care about HOW it got there, only that it is a little life that needs protecting.
When you say “rape is the exception” what you say is this: You are treating pregnancy as a punishment. You are PUNISHING people who have had CONSENSUAL SEX but don’t want to go through a pregnancy. People who DARED to have consensual sex without the goal of procreation in mind, and this is their “consequence.”
And that is gross.
ALSO! Consent to sex is NOT consent to pregnancy any more than:
- Consent to driving is consent to getting in a car wreck
- Consent to swimming is consent to drowning
- Consent to eating is consent to getting food poisoning
Choosing to do an activity does NOT mean you consent to every possible outcome of that activity. And there is NOTHING immoral about someone who chooses to have sex, gets pregnant, and gets an abortion. Abortion is a medical procedure, not a crime or moral dilemma.
