If you don’t even know how to describe your sexuality at 33 years old, then how can your life suddenly make sense? Liberal logic never makes sense to me…

From Daily Mail: Tess Holliday has opened up about navigating her own sexuality, revealing that she has recently realized she is queer.

The 33-year-old model graces the cover of Nylon magazine’s July 2019 digital issue in a flirty yellow swimsuit, and during her interview, she recalled recently chatting with a man at a hotel pool in Mexico when he asked if she was bisexual.

‘I said, ‘Thank you so much for asking. I’ve been thinking a lot about my relationship to my own queerness, and I think the word pansexual speaks to me more than bi does,’ she said, but it turned out the guy was only asking if she was ‘buying’ ⁠— not ‘bi.’

Tess isn’t exactly sure how to describe her sexual identity, but the interaction is proof that it is something that has been on her mind. When asked if she would be in a romantic relationship with a woman, she said, ‘Yeah!’ adding, ‘I might not know, like, what to do. But I feel like I’d figure it out.’

Though she now knows she is queer, the realization is more complicated because she has been in a monogamous heterosexual marriage with her husband, Nick Holliday, since 2015. Nick, an artist from Australia, describes himself as a ‘queer dad’ on his Instagram bio, and the couple will be celebrating their four year wedding anniversary on Friday.

‘I feel like a lot of stuff in my life now makes sense. A lot of the things that I felt when I was younger make sense. A lot of the relationships that I had make sense,’ Tess said of realizing she is queer. ‘I definitely have a sense of relief. I can connect with people on a more intimate level than I was before, because I don’t have to pretend to be someone I’m not.’

Tess shared a similar sentiment on Instagram Monday when she posted a photo of herself modeling a rainbow bra and a pink lace thong. ‘Happy Pride y’all!’ she wrote. ‘I’ve always been an ally for the LGBTQ community & I find myself trying to navigate my own sexual identity. I’m still figuring out how I identify and that’s okay because everyone’s journey is different. Love y’all.’

During her interview with Nylon, the plus-size star also opened up about getting an abortion as a mother-of-two, sharing that she opted to have the procedure done at Planned Parenthood instead of at the private doctor’s office in Beverly Hills that she was referred to.

Tess grew up in the Bible Belt of Mississippi, a state that had just one abortion clinic, and she is an avid supporter of Planned Parenthood. The mom first discussed the abortion on Instagram in May in response to Alabama’s decision to impose a near-total ban on abortions, including those for victims of rape or incest.

In her post, she explained that she couldn’t mentally handle being pregnant again after suffering postpartum. Although it was a difficult decision, she said it isn’t one that she regrets. Tess, who has been candid about her struggles with postpartum depression on social media, has a three-year-old son named Bowie with Nick and a 13-year-old son named Rylee from a previous relationship.

The social media star has more than 1.9 million followers, and she is not shy about using her platform to fight for what she believes in. However, she told Nylon that there are certain brands that will send her free clothes but won’t work with her because of how controversial she is.

‘Why is it controversial that I chose to talk about my abortion?’ she asked. ‘And the fact that I got an abortion when I was in a marriage and could have financially supported a child, why did I feel so much shame for that?’

She continued: ‘Why is it controversial to talk about the fact that fat people deserve to take up space and deserve to be sexy? All of that just makes me so angry, because I see so many people that are plus-sized figures and figures in general, like celebrities, and they will post Black Lives Matter in their Insta-Stories, but not on their page because they don’t want to mess up their beautiful feed.

‘It just makes me so mad because this is why people are dying, this is why people feel so alone. We are not showing up for these people, and we are not telling them that they matter.’

Tess, who has been working with trainer Massy Arias since last summer, prepared for the physically challenging beach shoot in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, by working out five days a week for months ahead of time. She was also mindful about what she ate but pointed out that it was ‘not in a toxic, diet culture-restrictive way.’

However, on the day of the shoot, Tess struggled with posing while her feet sunk in the sand and the waves crashed around her. A blister on her foot also popped, making it a somewhat uncomfortable experience for her.

Although Nylon editor-in-chief Gabrielle Korn said the model was a ‘hard working professional’ during the shoot, Tess feared she was coming off as a diva. ‘Obviously I probably have internalized fatphobia about myself and what the world has ingrained in us,’ she said, adding: ‘I allowed a lot to just get into my head, and I tried so hard to get out of it, but I felt like I just kept digging further.’

Womyn who runs hotel in small-town Michigan offers free lodging to women seeking abortions

From Yahoo: Incensed by the spate of legislation severely limiting abortion rights in several states, the manager of a hotel in a small Michigan town posted an unusual offer on Facebook last month.

“Dear sisters,” Shelley O’Brien began in a post addressed to those who live in the states that have or are trying to restrict access to abortion. “We cannot do anything about the way you are being treated in your home-state,” she wrote. “But, if you can make it to Michigan, we will support you with several nights lodging, and transportation to and from your appointment” for abortion services.

The “support” includes staying at the Yale Hotel for free.

O’Brien, 55, runs the hotel in Yale, Michigan. According to The Detroit Free Press, the community near the state’s eastern boundary is perhaps best known for its annual Bologna Festival, which takes place every July. It’s a largely conservative town with a population of under 2,000.

O’Brien, a mother of three and a grandmother of seven, told CNN on Saturday that she felt compelled to take a stand after watching such states as Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Ohio and Kentucky pass bills that seek to significantly impede a woman’s access to abortion.

Efforts also have been made in Michigan to restrict abortion rights, including introduction last month in the state Legislature of a so-called heartbeat bill that would ban the procedures after a fetal heartbeat is detected ― a point when many women remain unaware that they are pregnant. (Nice, unbiased reporting there, HuffPo…)

“Women should have autonomy over their own bodies,” O’Brien said. “If we do not have control over our own bodies, then this is not a free world.”

In her Facebook post, which garnered thousands of reactions, O’Brien promised that she’d provide several nights free lodging at the Yale Hotel, as well as “transportation to and from your appointment” for out-of-state women seeking an abortion in Michigan.

Speaking to the Free Press last week, O’Brien clarified that her offer “extends to anybody” seeking an abortion who may need support, including women who live in parts of her own state where abortion providers are few and far between. The paper noted that there are no abortion providers in Yale, but women can find such services an hour’s drive away.

O’Brien said no one had yet taken her up on her offer, but she has a room set aside for when someone does. She told CNN that she’d dubbed the space “Jane’s Room” in honor of Jane Roe, the pseudonym given to Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in the Roe v. Wade case that in 1973 established a woman’s right to an abortion throughout the U.S.

“The only way this is going to change is if people are willing to risk something,” O’Brien, who’s been called a “baby killer” for her views, told CNN. “The reason they get away with stuff like this is because nobody wants to make waves, nobody wants to give up anything for it.”

Singer Sheryl Crow says everyone is pro-life, including people who get abortions

From HuffPo: Sheryl Crow believes women should have the power to choose what to do with their own bodies.

“It’s not up to the government to decide what women do with their bodies,” the iconic singer said Wednesday on the red carpet for the CMT Music Awards. “We should have the opportunity to be in charge of our own bodies.”

Crow said the recent abortion bans in states like Georgia, Alabama and her home state of Missouri are simply “wrong,” adding that “everyone is pro-life” including people who get abortions.

“Particularly in the state of Missouri as well as, I believe it’s Alabama, I think there’s only two women in the entire … House of Representatives that are making the decisions,” she added. “So I feel like it’s wrong and I have always felt like the government needs to stay out of that.”

Planned Parenthood recently declared a state of emergency amid the sweeping anti-abortion restrictions implemented in several states across the country. In 2019 alone, 11 states have passed extreme anti-abortion restrictions or bans. Alabama passed by far the most extreme legislation last month, banning all abortions from the time a person knows they’re pregnant and providing no exceptions for rape or incest.

The United Nations commissioner of human rights recently said the U.S. is in “crisis” and likened the recent abortion laws to “torture.” “It’s an assault on truth, science and universal values and norms,” commissioner Kate Gilmore said on Wednesday.

Other stars who have spoken out against the anti-abortion restrictions include actresses Sophie Turner and Jessica Chastain, Ashley Judd, Alyssa Milano, Laverne Cox and Lena Waithe.

“Everyone is pro-life?”

Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiight.

Illinois demorats advance bill declaring a “fundamental right” to an abortion

From Daily Mail: House Democrats in Illinois have advanced a measure to replace the state’s abortion law with less restrictive language that gives people ‘a fundamental right’ to make decisions about their reproductive health.

The State Journal-Register reports a House committee approved the legislation late Sunday on a party-line vote, sending it to the House floor. All committee Republicans voted no.

Among other provisions, the bill requires private health insurance companies that cover pregnancy-related benefits to cover abortion.

Supporters say the measure is necessary to counter other states’ action to restrict abortion procedures and the appointment of U.S. Supreme Court justices who oppose abortion.

Republicans criticized Democrats, who control the Legislature and the governor’s office, for holding the hearing on the Sunday night of a holiday weekend and posting notice just one hour before the hearing.

Under the measure, reproductive health would be declared a ‘fundamental right.’

Women would have the right to ‘use or refuse reproductive health care’ during their pregnancy.

The action in Democratic-leaning Illinois follows actions in a series of Republican states to limit access to abortion.

A woman would gain additional routes to sue if she believes her rights are violated, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. And local governments would be barred from limiting access to contraception and health procedures, although they could pass rules that increase access to care.

A new Alabama law would make it a felony to perform most abortions, and doctors who carry them out could face sentences of up to 99 years in prison.

Scared students rejecting colleges in states with strict abortion laws

As Dana Schuster reports for NY Post: One Upper East Side family is sending Washington University a big, fat rejection letter.

On Friday, the governor of Missouri, where the well-respected school is located, signed a bill outlawing abortion after eight weeks.

The legislation was a deal-breaker for Ellen Bender and her daughter, Eliza, a junior at Horace Mann prep school, who planned to visit the school in June.

“These laws are not really good for women,” said Ellen, a retired litigator. “It puts my child into a situation [where] I might think twice about her safety.”

Missouri joins five other states — Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio, Georgia and Louisiana — that have passed so-called “heartbeat bills” this year.

In April, Alabama passed a bill where doctors who perform abortions in the state could face 99 years in prison.

The bans, which are not yet in effect, are being vehemently fought by everyone from lawmakers and Hollywood celebrities to high-schoolers making college plans.

“This is a serious thing,” said Amanda Uhry, a private-school admissions consultant in New York City. “I’ve had 61 college-admission clients remove Georgia and Ohio schools from their list for next year,” she said, adding that one of these clients is a double legacy at Emory, in Atlanta.

An Upper West Sider who asked to remain anonymous said she nixed Oberlin — her teenage daughter’s dream school — after a heartbeat bill was passed in Ohio last month.

“For someone who is studying music, Oberlin was always on her list of colleges,” the mother, who works in media, said of her daughter. “She texted me and was like, ‘WTF,’ when the Ohio law was passed. She wants to have control over her body and her rights.

“People are shocked and scared,” Uhry explained. “They were like, ‘What are we going to do if we send our daughter there and she gets pregnant?’ ”

Said Bender: “Some of my friends have said, ‘If your daughter goes to college in Georgia and, God forbid, she gets pregnant, she can always come to New York for an abortion.’ ”

But, she added, that’s missing the point: “If the legislators passed those laws, they won’t be friendly legislators for women in general.”

(Spokespersons for Washington and Emory universities did not return calls for comment by press time, while a representative for Oberlin declined to comment.)

It’s not just prospective college students blacklisting states. Hollywood is up in arms after Gov. Brian Kemp of Georgia, a popular hub for production thanks to its 30 percent tax rebates, signed the state’s heartbeat bill on May 7.

One day later, David Simon, creator of “The Wire” and “The Deuce,” tweeted that he was boycotting the Peach State.

Last week, director Reed Morano announced that she would no longer film scenes from Amazon Studios’ “The Power” in Georgia. Kristen Wiig and writing partner Annie Mumolo, who are working on the new comedy “Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar,” followed suit, also pulling out of the state, according to Variety.

Uhry said the anger — and fear — has only just begun, especially for her college-bound clientele.
“Everyone is scared,” said Uhry. “What state should we take off the list next?”

TV reality star had two abortions to “end her family’s cycle of poverty”

From Daily Mail: Married at First Sight star Jamie Otis has opened up about having two abortions, stressing that while no one wants to have one, it is a ‘necessary option’ for women.

The 32-year-old nurse joined a number of celebrities in sharing her abortion story after Alabama passed a bill last week imposing a near-total ban on the procedure, including those for victims of rape or incest.

‘I just cannot continue to sit in silence while women’s fundamental human rights are being taken away. I am speaking up for HER,’ the reality star wrote on Instagram.

‘I had an abortion. Twice. Is it something I’m proud of? Heck no! No one *wants* an abortion,’ continued. ‘It has left the most painful hole in my heart. But do I think women should be stripped of their right to choose? Absolutely not.’

Jamie, who has a one-year-old daughter named Henley with her husband Doug Hehner, said she kept quiet about her abortions after receiving backlash when she first wrote about her experience in her book, Wifey 101.

In an essay for People, she explained that she grew up in extreme poverty with a drug-addicted mother who couldn’t provide for her five children.

Jamie said her mom ‘dropped out of high school’ and had a string of abusive boyfriends. She had no idea who her father was and her mother couldn’t afford to take care of her and her siblings. She would wake up without electricity or food half of the time.

‘We lived in a trailer that had leaky ceilings with doors that wouldn’t shut all the way and windows that were duct-taped,’ she recalled. ‘But the hardest part was that my mom was gone. She left us for weeks at a time and we were just teenagers and kids fending for ourselves.’

When she was 18, Jamie got pregnant by the first guy she had ever had sex with. She actually found out she was pregnant when she went to a clinic to get birth control.

The nurse told her abortion was an option, but she initially brushed it off because in her family ‘you don’t have abortions under any circumstances.’

However, she knew that her boyfriend wouldn’t be a good father, and she didn’t want to drop out of school and have a baby with an abusive man like her mother and older sister did. She didn’t want to be stuck in the same cycle of poverty.

‘I chose to have an abortion. I wouldn’t have been able to provide this child the kind of life he or she deserved,’ she wrote. ‘And I wanted to finish college and provide for my siblings and give us a better life. I didn’t see how that would be possible while also taking care of a baby.’

Jamie said she had a second abortion when she got pregnant in nursing school. ‘I don’t even want to admit that it happened twice, but here I am sharing my story so other women can feel that they aren’t alone,’ she explained.

‘My abortions were a secret I kept to myself for nearly my whole life. I hated myself for a very long time for it, and I know the stones people will throw at me: Why didn’t I use birth control better? Why wasn’t I more careful? But the thing is, it happened to me and continues to happen to couples.

‘You can throw stones at me if you want, but I just think of a young woman who has no one to turn to. I wish someone had said to me back then that I’m not evil. I felt like a terrible, selfish human being and sometimes I still do.’

The mother-of-one said she often reminds herself that she wouldn’t have her daughter Henley if she had ‘two children with two men who were not fit to be fathers.’

Read the whole story here.

Read the story here that People Magazine is promoting about 24 celebrities who had abortions and wanted to share their stories to “end the stigma.”

Here’s some reasons why these celebrities had abortions:

I was worried about my career responsibilities and afraid that I could not exist as both a career woman and mother.”

“I had an abortion. I just simply wasn’t in a place, financially or emotionally to take that on.

“My mental health couldn’t handle being pregnant again & I made the best decision for ME & ultimately my family.”

“When I was younger I had an abortion. It was the smartest decision I could’ve made, not only for myself & my boyfriend at the time. Having a baby at that time would have only perpetuated the cycle of poverty, chaos and dysfunction I was born into.

“I had an abortion when I was young, and it was the best decision I have ever made. Both for me, and for the baby I didn’t want, and wasn’t ready for, emotionally, psychologically and financially.”

‘I didn’t have anything to offer a child.”

It would have been absolute career death for me to have done that … it would have been unthinkable to have a child.” (From Joan Collins, who got pregnant with Warren Beatty.)

What happened to #LoveTrumpsHate? Jim Carrey tweets drawing depicting Alabama governor being aborted

Yesterday Hollyweird libtard Jim Carrey tweeted the following in response to Alabama’s Gov. Kay Ivey signing the Alabama Human Life Protection Act:

“I think If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama.”

At least he’s admitting abortion kills someone.

As I’ve been saying for awhile, this guy needs to up his meds.

Alabama abortion law causes libtards to freak out: ‘Imagine the indignity of being forced to carry your rapist’s baby to term’

Hollyweird types and progressives who don’t live or vote in Alabama reacted as predicted to the new Alabama Human Life Protection Act. Read about their responses on the link.

Many were upset that white republican men signed off on this law (which was signed by a woman governor). Libtards wanted to know how men would react if they had to carry a baby to full term if they were raped.

My question is: Why can’t one imagine the love and potential for a child conceived from rape?

Here are some stories of people, conceived by rape, who survived the “indignity” of being carried to full term.

Eartha Kitt: Eartha was born on a cotton plantation near the small town of North, South Carolina, or St. Matthews on January 17, 1927.

Her mother Annie Mae Keith was of Cherokee and African descent. Though she had little knowledge of her father, it was reported that he was a son of the owner of the farm where she had been born, and that Kitt was conceived by rape.

Angelina Jolie’s adopted daughter Zahara: In 2007 the mother of Angelina’s Ethopian adopted daughter spoke out about her rape which led to the birth of Zahara. She said, “I think my daughter is a very fortunate human being to be adopted by a world famous lady. I wish them both all the success they deserve.”

Martin Sheen and his wife Janet, who was conceived by rape

Liberal actor Martin Sheen’s wife, Janet: Despite Martin being a devout liberal, he is also a devout Catholic. From Life Site News in 2011:

“Sheen, a complex character whose Catholic devotional life and pro-life views have not stopped him from backing the presidency of Barack Obama, was interviewed by Gay Byrne; the interview was released on Irish broadcaster RTE’s website April 3.

Byrne asked Sheen: “The liberal causes that you espouse are readily identifiable with people in the movie business, but your anti-abortion stance is very strong indeed. And tell me what you told me on the late late show in 1987 as to why that is.”

Sheen replied, “Well we had pregnancies with our grandsons, three specifically. And we welcomed these children and encouraged the mothers to have the children and gave them support. The lads were not happy at the time but they came to love these children. We have three grown grandchildren, two of them are married, they’re some of the greatest source of joy in our lives.”

Sheen went on to note that his wife Janet struggled after the conception of their fourth child, but chose life despite the circumstances after speaking with a therapist.

However, Byrne asked about Janet, “was she not born because of a rape?” Sheen responded that his wife would rather that he not speak about it, but does admit that she was conceived in rape. Byrne followed up, suggesting that “if there had been an abortion she would not exist.”

Sheen relates further that even after birth Janet’s mother contemplated “dumping her in the Ohio River.” She was raised by aunts till she was six, after which her mother, with a new husband, “came to collect her,” he said.”

Valerie Gatto, conceived from rape

Valeria Gatto, former Miss Pennsylvania: From CBN News in 2014:

Valerie Gatto shouldn’t be alive today. The model and former Miss Pennsylvania is considered successful by today’s standards, but most people would never guess she is a child of rape.

Her mother was brutally attacked at knife point when she was just 19 years old. Her attacker intended to kill her. Somehow, she got away thanks to the help of a bright light.

“Whenever my mom managed to get away, he was going to murder her, but there was just this bright flash of light, and he got scared and didn’t want any onlookers to see her and what he was doing to her. So, that light gave my mom the opportunity to run away and escape — and if that bright light didn’t appear, she would have been murdered,” Gatto told Trib Live.

Her mom later realized she escaped with not just her life, but a pregnancy. Gatto’s mom did not want to abort her but decided to raise her with the support of her family.

Today, Gatto is a proud graduate of the University of Pittsburgh and pageant winner. While her life had a tragic beginning, Gatto chooses to focus on the positive.

I live my life not thinking of it as something negative but looking at how to turn a negative into a positive. … A lot of people could benefit from this type of story — not just young women story — about how to protect themselves and how to prevent the crimes. It’s a story that could inspire a lot of people and, if I stay a strong person, I can inspire many other people,” she said.

Faith Daniels: “It doesn’t matter how you were conceived.”

Faith Daniels, former TV news anchor: From People Magazine in 1993:

“AT AN OCTOBER TAPING OF HER DAILY NBC talk show, scheduled to air March 4, Faith Daniels was moderating a discussion of a disturbing topic: women who become pregnant as the result of rape. She seemed every inch the dispassionate observer, moving smoothly between one woman, who had opted for an abortion, and another, who had chosen to carry her pregnancy to term. But just before cutting to a commercial, Daniels, 35, made a startling disclosure to her guests. “There are many adoptees—including this one—who were conceived in the exact same way,” she said, a slight tremor in her voice. “It really doesn’t matter how you were conceived. Only what you’ve become.

Though Daniels has spoken openly of her adoption in the past, she had never before divulged publicly what she learned only in 1985 about its circumstances: that her own birth mother, then an unwed 17-year-old, had become pregnant with Faith after being beaten and raped by a young man she had been dating.

If Daniels’s viewers were stunned by the revelation, the reporter herself has remained a model of equanimity. “[The circumstance of conception] isn’t something that’s a cross to carry or that I dwell on,” she says now. “Date rape is truly an awful thing. But if a child is the result, and is placed in a loving home, there should be no stigma.”

Alabama demorat on abortion debate: “You kill them now or you kill them later”

That’s his “bottom line.”

About this Alabama demorat, John Rogers, from Wikipedia:

“John W. Rogers Jr. (born December 16, 1940) is an American politician from the state of Alabama. A member of the Democratic Party, Rogers serves in the Alabama House of Representatives, representing the 52nd district. Rogers has a bachelor’s degree from Tennessee State University, a master’s degree from the University of Alabama, and an associate’s degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

On 5/1/19 Congressman Rogers stated during a filibuster on an abortion ban bill in Alabama: “Some children are just unwanted. You either kill them now or you kill them later in the electric chair.”

“Some parents can’t handle a child with problems. It could be retarded. It might have no arms and no legs.”

h/t Twitchy

BONUS: On Thursday, the demorat called Donald Trump Jr. “retarded” and said he should have been aborted. From NY Post: “He’s evidently retarded. Uh, crazy,” embattled Democratic Rep. John Rogers told reporters in Alabama, according to WVTM-TV news. “Donald Trump’s son, I know there’s something wrong with that boy.”

Another American permanently separated from her family by illegal alien in car crash

WKRG photo

From WKRGThe Mobile County District Attorney’s office says an illegal immigrant who is (was) days away from his 17th birthday is responsible for a crash that killed a woman on US 98 Monday.

Prosecutors say Domingo Francisco Marcos hit Sonya Jones head-on, killing her then tried to run off. He was injured too badly to run and collapsed. He was then taken to USA Women’s and Children’s Hospital for surgery.

Marcos was released in 2017 when he claimed asylum. That was in Arizona where officials were trying to deport him back to Guatemala. He never showed up in court on the asylum claim so it was denied. But, he disappeared and was never deported.

He’s charged with homicide by vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.

Prosecutors plan on asking the judge not to grant him bond.

Lower Alabama Congressman and Senate candidate Bradley Byrne issued the following statement in response to the arrest:

“Yet again we have someone who is in our country illegally taking the life of an American citizen. How many more Americans have to die before we take action to crack down on illegal immigration, secure the border, and keep the American people safe? Enough is enough!”
