You tell them Horton. Choose Life!

Dr. Seuss was pro choice, his wife still sues pro life organizations for using this phrase against their wishes (Horton was about post-WWII treatment of Japan, not abortion), and his estate still continues to donate to Planned Parenthood. so by supporting his works you’re subsequently supporting pro choice organizations. thanks! <3

An important analysis: “The book was written in 1954, long before Roe v. Wade[…] The Whos are not groups of cells, after all: they are sentient, independent people with their own society, even a mayor. Their small size is a metaphor, you see (trust the anti-abortion crowd to take a parable literally). Seuss is making a point about people who are different, and the ignorance that keeps others from metaphorically not seeing or hearing them.”

If this hits 1k notes I’ll legit scream

This post bugs me, because:A.] If your body positivity includes insulting another body type, it’s not body positivity. Period. B.] It implies that skinny people aren’t ridiculed too. Women’s bodies are constantly under scrutiny. Of course it’s fucking upsetting to be called a “skinny bitch,” just like it’s upsetting to be called a “fat ass.” I don’t know why this concept is so hard to grasp. Instead of degrading other women for having different body types, why don’t we dismantle the society that bases our worth on our flesh? Jfc.
