I came across this utter fucking gem while googling prochoice images for potential future shit-stirring:
Black text: “EVERYONE who supported slavery was free. EVERYONE who supports abortion was born. That’s how oppression works. “They’re not really people” – We’ve heard that before! firstname.lastname@example.org
And let me tell you, people, I just spent a good five minutes staring at it in wonder. Like, really? This is really an analogy we’re going to make? Ickle babby embwyos are an oppressed class of human being completely and fully analogous to [of course African-American because everyone on the internet is American, you know] slaves?
I mean, I know I just snarked Ken Orr making basically that argument a few days ago, but to have it there in wonderfully stark text bluntly stating that being born is equivalent to supporting slavery in the US … I think it broke something in my brain.
One thing is pretty fucking certain though: the people who conceived of* and made this image? Yeah, probably white.**
Me too. So here’s where I shut up.
