I really wish people would stop using Lent as an excuse to go on a restrictive diet.

In my childbirth lecture today my professor was explaining how you put your fingers inside the pregnant woman during labour to measure how dilated her cervix is. She said “Remember, you never want to put more than two fingers inside a woman’s vagina.” and without even thinking I loudly said “Well I don’t know about THAT.”
Forty-one years ago, on January 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion in the landmark decision Roe v. Wade. We are so grateful to the people who fought to make legal abortion possible, the providers who care for patients, as well as those who work to ensure that everyone has access to reproductive health care. Thank you!

lol at any book list that can’t even manage to be composed of at least 1/3 women writers
3 out of 16?
EXCELLENT POINT, dang, yes. EVERYONE: Which little books by ladies would you recommend for a long journey? And then we’ll make our own little amendment to this list.
These all get bonus points because they would be considered canonical by anyone with half a brain, so you feel like you’re getting your culture on!
