Let’s play one of my favourite games:
Search for surgical procedures/medical/general gore photos and see how many grindcore/death metal/goregrind bands have used it for an EP or 7”.

How To Identify Crisis Pregnancy Centers
Crisis pregnancy centers, or pregnancy resource centers, disguise themselves as medical facilities, but usually have no licensed doctors, nurses or counselors. They often appear under “Abortion Alternatives,” and may have names similar to abortion clinics nearby in order to confuse patients into entering their buildings instead of the real clinics.
Once you enter a CPC, their mission is to prevent you from getting an abortion at any cost. They will use misleading language, delay tactics, emotional manipulation, intimidation, and outright lies to either persuade you against abortion or to make you miss your appointment. The worst part? It’s all completely legal and funded by federal dollars.
CPCs do their best to appear as legitimate abortion clinics, so how can you tell which is which? Here is a list of red flags for CPCs:
- The words “crisis” or “resource” appear in the center’s name
- Their ads use language like “Pregnant & Scared?”
- They offer free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds
- When asked if they provide abortions or contraception, they will not give a direct answer
- The waiting room has biased pamphlets, sometimes with graphic pictures labeled as abortions
- They attempt to make you feel guilty about considering abortion
- They offer baby items, such as diapers and formula
- They downplay the effectiveness of contraception and emphasize abstinence
- They emphasize the dangers of abortion (Fact: fewer than 0.3% of patients experience complications requiring hospitalization)
- They discuss the false connections between abortion and breast cancer, infertility, or mental illness, often referred to as post-abortion stress syndrome
- Regardless of how you talk about the pregnancy, they refer to “your baby,” the “preborn child,” “post-abortive women,” and say that you are “already a mother.”
A list of licensed abortion clinics in the United States can be found on the Abortion Assistance Blog.
Note: The following was written by Marcel Neergaard, the 11-year-old Tennessee native who spoke out against Tennessee’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill after being a victim of anti-LGBT bullying. Marcel, his family, and thousands of people (including myself) want StudentsFirst to revoke their award they gave Tennessee State Representative John Ragan, the creator of the Don’t Say Gay bill and the new Classrooms Protection Act. At his young age, he was considering suicide at one point. No one should ever be pushed to that extent for simply being who they are. Marcel’s words are powerful, and should resonate with everyone. Marcel will be an amazing activist for LGBT rights in the future. I wish Marcel and his family all the best, and I will fight with them in their fight to end anti-LGBT bullying and homophobia.
I am Marcel Neergaard, and I am 11 years old. This year I was homeschooled for sixth grade because of severe bullying. If I had gone back to public school, there is a great possibility that I would have taken my own life. That possibility would have grown if a certain bill introduced in my home state of Tennessee had passed into law. This bill was known as the “don’t say gay” bill. Though that bill never became a law, Oak Ridge’s own representative, John Ragan, introduced a new version of the Classroom Protection Act. It is the “don’t say gay” bill, just more homophobic. While he crafted this horrifying bill, he received an award. I wrote a petition to take a stand against this.
During my first year in middle school, I experienced severe bullying. I was called terrible names that were quite hurtful. At that time, I had just realized that I’m gay, and the bullies used the word “gay” as an insult. This made me feel like being gay was horrible, but my parents told me otherwise. Their support was tremendous. But as powerful as their love was, it couldn’t fight off all the bullying. I don’t want anyone else to feel the way I did. No one deserves that much pain, no matter who they are. This was my reason for writing the petition.
John Ragan’s Classroom Protection Act will do harm to LGBT students across the state. It promotes a system that does not educate students about gays, because no one but counselors, nurses and principals can talk about being gay. This also means that if a student were to talk to a teacher about being bullied because he or she is gay or possibly gay, the teacher would be required to say something like, “That subject is inappropriate for your age group.” If the student managed to find an “appropriate” person, that counselor, nurse or principal would have to tell the student’s parents that their child may be gay. What happens if the family is homophobic? Even if the family is supportive, every student deserves the right to come out to family members when he or she wants.
I am against a man receiving an award for trying to destroy all safe places for LGBT students. John Ragan is receiving his honor from StudentsFirst, whose actions are contrary to their name. My petition asks StudentsFirst to rescind the award to John Ragan as educational “Reformer of the Year” and to start supporting Tennessee’s Dignity for All Students Act. They could also support federal anti-bullying legislation like the Safe Schools Improvement Act and the Student Non-Discrimination Act. I know that Chris Sanders at the Tennessee Equality Project would be happy to work with StudentsFirst in creating effective anti-bullying laws.

I must note that these guys run around screaming & shaking cowbells. They sometimes stop to knock shit over and start humping each other. There are also people dressed up as bears and they pretend to be bears and basically this is Anthrocon 500BC
This ceremony ended during the 1930’s, probably because of Franco & WWII when a huge chunk of the Basque population was murdered.
The tradition was brought back in the 1990’s. No, they didn’t bring it back just after WWII, they brought it back in the 90’s.
Hey 90’s kids remember the time your mom took you out and a bunch of goat men screamed at you while cupping each others balls and coating themselves in pigs blood?
If you’re a basque kid then you just might.
This is seriously the fucking coolest thing I’ve read in MONTHS.
What the fuck. The first resource I could find on the shelf life of fresh blood (for eating as opposed to transfusing) is from something called the Atlanta Vampire Alliance.
I haven’t seen a drift of snowflakes this special since I first found an otherkin tag. Jesus tapdancing Christ.
I don’t know what’s more entertaining:
The fact that they actually think they’re vampires (excuse me…’vampyres’)-
…Or the fact that they’re from Georgia.
Like, “AH DO DECLARE. AH COULD SHORE USE A NAHCE, TALL GLASS AH ‘A POSITIVE’ RAIGHT NOW.”
People who say that bullying and abuse as a child prepares one for the real world terrify me.
You seriously think there’s nothing wrong with your child being bullied to the point of irrevocable trauma and that it ‘builds character’. You know what? Die in a fucking fire and never ever reproduce if that’s your mindset.
