A pheeew things...
Abortions are not what planned parenthood is about. (as everybody has already said) On Instagram, Katy explained well enough how in her transition from child to young adulthood they were the only place she could rely on to find out how a woman's body's inside works.
I find that very hard to believe. In the absence of any other information (which in itself is unlikely), there was always her public library. And, I keep saying, if she was as broke as she claims to have been, she would have been eligible for Medicaid, where she could see other doctors.
PP is there to make sure millions of women in her (then) situation or other women's health situations are not left alone but have the support and education they need. You don't walk in there like into a store saying, I want an abortion please - that's by far, far, far not how it works and their aim is by no means at all to simply facilitate abortions. A common misunderstanding.
You have not always only said positive things about Katy.
Neither have I.
We're only human, sometimes we rant or vent about something.
But certain posters seem to feel that I have no right to post anything negative about Katy.
Smackyoutwice was around when Katy played and sang to a few hundred ppl, happy to collect enough money to pay the bills. Katy recognised her during a TV broadcast from Australia by just having her username mentioned to her.
That doesn't matter. That does not give her the right to be completely rude to me for no reason at all. I'm not talking about this or recent threads. She was completely rude to me since I joined this forum for absolutely no reason at all.
if I don't know what Katy did on Christmas 10 years ago, she probably does
- so, no, nobody would be happier without her around.
I would be happier without her around. But I realize that, like it or not, she has as much right to post as I do. So she needs to accept that I have as much of a right to post as she does.
10 000 dollar is 10 000 dollar. Don't confuse net worth with actual money. Discussing that she should have donated more but it was wrong to donate at all is pointless confusion anyway.
$10,000 is an insignificant amount of money. It was just to appease her feminist fans, while telling the rest of us that we don't matter.
After November 8th I began asking myself how could I ever help people from outside, in a place thousands of miles away who will face a hard time now. Katy gave us the answer. She had a wish for her birthday to all, she has one now. It's not a hard decision to fulfil her a wish she may voice to her fans usually once a year mostly if at all.
Donating an insignificant amount of money to an organization that murders babies, and telling the rest of us that we don't matter is not the solution.
To define or undefine Katy as feminist is also pointless, first we'd have to define feminist itself.
That is true. Then again, Katy admitted that she was too dumb to know what a feminist was.
This is not the time to squabble about Katy's charity project support choices. We're all going through worries like not for many decades. Katy is one of the strongest persons shining a light into this darkness. I've spent over a week in upset and sickening fear of the very, very near future. There are people around me who've helped me to keep sane, but Katy is just like one of them even if she lives on a different continent.
You need to realize that in a democracy, your candidate is not always going to win. And life moves on. Celebrities such as Katy have a hard time not getting their way. So this is a dose of reality for her and other celebrities. At the voting booth, a regular person's vote, such as myself, counts the same as a celebrity's vote. In my adult life, I have voted for many candidates who have won, and I have voted for many candidates who have lost. I understand and accept that sometimes my candidate will win, and sometimes they will lose. When somebody that I don't like wins, I still have to go to work the next day as if it were any other day. I don't have the luxury of sitting at home and crying. I also understand that sometimes, such as last week's election, I will have to make an unenviable choice between two very deeply flawed candidates. Voting for Trump gave me no pleasure, but I chose him as the lesser of two evils.
