Now I happen to be a fan of the Huffington Post. Keep in mind that I DO research my stories, following multiple links if provided, to see what conclusions I can draw. However, having grown up in a house where FOX News was the standard with its gay-bashing, Murrican-worshipping, xenophobic agenda, Intaking my news through links from my friends, through MSN.com, the Huffington Post, and other sources is my passive-agressive way of feeling like Mom and Dad haven't brainwashed me. They're welcome to their opinions, but they spent years telling me mine was wrong, and I'm finally in a place where I can intake what I want to without being afraid of what they'd read over my shoulder.

With that said, I enjoyed this article. I did NOT, however, enjoy the comments.

I go to HuffPo for the articles. I don't stick around for the comments, especially not about abortion. It seems to be a meeting ground for MRAs, which is really unfortunate. Seriously, read some of the comments about this woman.

Let me just drive this home:

IT IS NEVER OKAY TO VICTIM-BLAME. IT IS NEVER OKAY TO BELITTLE OR DIMINISH SOMEONE ELSE'S EXPERIENCES. PEOPLE MAKE STUPID MISTAKES, BUT IT IS NEVER OKAY TO SAY THINGS LIKE "OH LOOK, ANOTHER BITTER WOMAN" OR "SHE DESERVES WHAT SHE GOT." NEVER.


...And I thought I couldn't get angrier than when I found out Glee had an episode where a girl with Down's Syndrome became a school shooter. Appalling. Absolutely appalling. I will save my thoughts on that for another post, though. Because disability is very near and dear to me (it's my job, in fact), and this is just...

God.
