Debunk-in myths about abortion that you have been told

Debunk-in myths about abortion

On social media there is a lot of information about abortion which can be good and bad. If this information is checked by professional it can for sure be helpful, but if it is just a lie to convince someone to not get it I think it is so wrong. I feel that if your belief is that abortion is wrong that is fine, you just don’t get it, but spreading lies to feel better about yourself is wrong. There are many reasons why someone want to terminate the pregnancy and image then coming across all these lies of course a person would rethink it. It is not right to make someone questions themselves, if you feel you want to get abortion get it don’t listen to these lies. Because of all these lies it is important to tell you what is true and what is false, so for today’s article I will be telling you myths about abortion that people are spreading online and why they are just myths!

Myth:

Having an abortion has higher health risks than continuing a pregnancy  and going through childbirth

Fact:

Abortion is totally safe if performed by qualified practitioners. This is very old way of thinking the medicine has improved so much and so did the abortion. There is so much technology and so much knowledge. Many researches suggest that childbirth has higher risk for your health than having a trimester abortion.

Myth:

Abortion affects future fertility

Fact:

If it is done correctly by qualified professional there is rarely associated with any future risk to fertility. I know someone who had couple of abortions and was able to have a child after all these abortions. The only reason why people think you can’t get pregnant again after having abortion is because of these people who are against abortion. They make you believe god is punishing you for getting abortion, but I am here to tell you it is so false.

Myth:

Abortion used instead of contraception

Fact:

Contraception is great, but it is far more difficult than what you think. Even if you use it correctly something can always go wrong. So in this case terminating pregnancy is great option to have, because it is safe. Most of people experiencing unplanned pregnancy use some form of contraception, yet we know that:

-No form of contraception is 100% effective, including sterilisation

When you have sex it is always risk, because no contraception can 100% control our bodies and sometimes even if you are being safe you can still get pregnant!

-All modern methods of contraception have some associated risks/ side effects

For some people risking your health is just not worth it, when you can have abortion which better for your health than contraception. I for example would never in my life take birth control pill I think it would not be good for my body!

-Finding suitable contraception is very difficult for some people

We all have different bodies and we don’t know how our body might react to certain contraception. So some people don’t even bother using them!

-Sexual behaviour is not always consensual or predictable

We can’t always plan out when we will have sex, sometimes it just happens and we might just forget to take contraception. It can also happen that someone might force us to have sex and this is something you can really predict!!

-Violence/abuse/control in relationship can make it difficult to use/access contraception

When your partner want to control you, it is hard to take contraception and I feel some many controlling partners are against contraceptions!!!

Myth:

Abortion causes emotional/mental harm

Fact:

Yes of course unplanned pregnancy can have mental and emotional effect. There might be a guilt for some, but that also goes away soon. Because that person deep down had good reasons for it and that is good enough to move one. Research shows that for majority abortion causes no long lasting psychological consequences. I feel terminating pregnancy itself is not traumatic, but other aspects of abortion that are sadly part of it. When you feel judged by others or when someone questions your decision that can be hard on anyone. Even though it feels right to you, they make you question this decision. Just remember in these situation that you are allowed to get abortion and when it feel right to you, you should do it! No one knows how you feel so they have no right to have opinion on you!!!

Myth:

Abortion causes breast cancer

Fact:

First I have to say that this myth is so crazy. Even though I am not a doctor I can see that cancer and abortion and two totally different things. It is impossible to get breast cancer from abortion! But in case a woman has a breast cancer while pregnant, abortion can actually safe a child from getting sick! Maybe these crazy people feel that abortion is like a cancer so now they are trying to convince people that is can cause you a breast cancer. This is crazy and there is no chance you can get it!!

Myth:

Adoption is better than abortion

Fact:

Yes in your opinion adoption is better, but your opinion doesn’t matter! The only opinion that matters is the opinion of the pregnant woman who is carry that child. And also let me remind you, adoptions are not as perfect as they make you think they are. You don’t know if the child will happy life because that child might end up in foster care, and foster care is the worse. Most foster care parents are horrible and are just doing it for the money. The thought of the child not having the best life is worse than have terminating pregnancy  and everyone needs to accept it and stop judging!!

Myth:

Only young and/or irresponsible people choose abortion

Fact:

That is so not true. It can be that a 20 year old seeks terminate pregnancy but it can also be a woman in here 30s with happy family that also wants to do it . There are many women who seek abortion after having children because it is not about being irresponsible it is about just not being able to have a child for whatever reason. Women in all ages, material statuses, religions, occupations seek abortion. Let’s stop assuming things that are simply not true!!

And here we go, what our society teaches us about abortion is so false. Abortion can be a positive thing if you are willing to expend and open your mind. So many see it as negative, but you don’t see the positive, it helped and still is helping many women who really can’t have a child! There are so many wonderful women who are thankful for getting abortion and thankful that abortion does exist! Abortion doesn’t have to be this taboo topic, we can make it more positive so people will talk about it more. Us being open about it and not being judgemental can help many women other there! It will make them feel good about getting abortion.

5 Ways Influencers are damaging your body image

We are all aware that social media

is not the healthiest place and I feel it get worse and worse every year. I mean don’t get me wrong there also some amazing things about social media it can educate you and it can help with so many issues we as society are facing like for example racism I feel there would be way more racist people if there was no social media.

But social media also have quite a

dark side, a side that can get really toxic. And one of the main reasons we have toxic side of social media is because of influencers. These influencers that make you question your worth and make you feel your body is not good enough because they show you their perfectly photoshopped photos and make you feel it is real.

I could say so much about those

influencers and how wrong it is what they are doing, but let’s just stick to one topic at the time. You might think it might help you watching these influencers, but you are so wrong it is damaging you and your body image. I feel it can damage anyone’s body image, even if you are 100% happy with your body.

Of course when you see

perfect body on someone you wish to have it, but also feel shitty for not having it! But trust me if it looks perfect, I am sure 99.9% is fake. And also isn’t it more beautiful to have imperfections ? Well anyways let’s talk about it how they are damaging you

Only showing the highlights:

Influencers are known to show only highlights. They only post the perfect photo with perfect angle and the perfect setup, but that is not a real life. Our bodies won’t always look good in fact most times it doesn’t, when we sit it does look we have more than we have, when we are standing in the wrong angle it won’t look good either. And we also shouldn’t worry how we position ourselves because these influencers do it, we should be able to talk to our friends on the street without worrying how our body looks like. But when they just show the highlights it makes us feel insecure and makes us question our worth. We start to think if our body is really good enough.

And no one should feel this way,

everyone should feel that they are good enough because they are. Instead of focusing the best way you can look, focus on being the most real and how to make your followers feel good. But I can tell you one thing the reason influencers have need to only show highlights means they question their worth and therefor have to be perfect otherwise they feel insecure, so it is nothing against you and there is nothing wrong with you, it is them that have problem!

Comparison:

As I said before when we see these perfect bodies of course we want it too. So we end up comparing ourselves to these perfect bodies and it is not far fight since our bodies are not photoshopped or might not look the best at that moment. We end up wishing we had these bodies and that can put you in very dark place. We see our flaws but instead of embracing them we hate them because of what we see on social media. An influencer should make you feel good about your flaws not bad about it. It is stupid to compare yourself with everyone it makes no sense because we are all different, this influencer will never be you and you will never be that influencer. Own your power love who you are, don’t wish to be someone else!

Unrealistic expectations:

When you start comparing yourself and seeing your body next to these perfect bodies, of course you will try to achieve the perfect body. But see doesn’t matter how hard you work on it, you will never have the body that you see on social media. Because these perfect bodies that you see on social media ARE NOT REAL, they are photoshopped and honestly they don’t even think about how realistic this is they just do whatever looks good.

Our bodies can’t achieve what

photoshop can, it is impossible our bodies are built differently and it is not possible to achieve it. But that doesn’t mean that your body is not beautiful, because it is. This can leave us very frustrated and we can end up hating our bodies! This can also in general give you false image of ideal body. Because of these influencers you will end up thinking that this is the ideal body type, when in reality all bodies are ideal body types. There is no better or worse body type, it is your body so embrace it!

Eating disorder:

Showing the perfect can make someone feel they have to lose weight to have these perfect bodies. It can make people feel shitty about their own bodies. These people might stop eating because they think if they don’t even they could achieve the perfect body which is so false. Food is not your enemy, food is making sure your body keeps going.

Because of these influencers

so many can develop eating disorder even though they were perfectly health. It really pushes people because they think this is real and want it so badly. When you show your perfect body make sure to show the process how it got so perfect, this way you can prevent so many eating disorders!

Insecurities:

When you see all these perfect bodies of course you feel start to not feel so good in your own skin. When you see all these perfect bodies and of course you don’t have it, you will start to have insecurities. You will feel that you are not good enough and that can’t be good for anyone. Being insecure about yourself can have effects in many aspects of your life. For example you tend to get jealous at other people, and that can make you feel worse. People who are jealous can become the worse version of themselves and can drive people away. There are many disadvantages of having insecurities, but most importantly you don’t feel good and you can’t grow to the best version of yourself if you have insecurities. But it is not you, it is them!

As you can see influencers really

can damage you. They make you have different image of ideal body, the very wrong and false image of ideal body. Influencers make you feel shitty about yourself and make you question your worth. And of course I can’t forget they make you have unrealistic expectations and we are still looking up to them?! They are the wrong people. I true influencer would put his or hers followers first and make them feel good and show them the real them not some fake version. Maybe you do it because you are insecure, but you are damaging your followers so much and I feel it is so selfish.

Little tip:

If watch influencer and you feel shitty after that, unfollow them that means they are the wrong person to follow. We have to show them if they don’t take this seriously they will lose us, we don’t want fake stuff anymore. And another good advice just know if it is too good it is probably fake and see that you have more courage to show the real you and they don’t so this make you more beautiful!

Hopefully this can open eyes to many of you, and you start to rethink how you need to treat your followers and also to the followers you can open your eyes and see how fake they are!

What should you say?

Wrong: You’ve slept withs many people though 

People can sleep with as many people as they want to. It is their body so they choose what they want to do with it. There is no wrong way of treating your body. Some people happen to love sex more, some less. It someone had many partners doesn’t mean they deserve to be raped. It is a crime regardless of their sexual background.

What should you say?

Wrong: Did you say no? What were you doing there? 

There is way too often victim blaming, because our society want to ignore the real problem which is the rapist. Victim blaming can cause victim to go into very dark place. A thought of them being the reason that his happened to them, could destroy them. These kind of questions makes them question themselves. It is common of victim to not say no, when your mind noticed something bad is about to happen, you freeze.

The right term for that

is called flight and fight response you can google it. But you basically are left speechless you barley speak and can even say no. Regardless of the situation any normal person would not, this is not right and they shouldn’t be doing it. No one has right to access your body without you give permission. They need to make sure you 100% want it otherwise it is sexual assault.

What should you say?

Wrong: How could you even put yourself in that position? 

You should never make them feel, they are to blame. It is not the right way to approach the situation. You blaming them will turn into them blaming themselves and that won’t be good for recovery. Getting raped can happen to anyone, at any time and at any place.

It can happen during

the day at public place, but also at club. You can’t restrict yourself from doing things you enjoy because there are rapists out there. It happened and victim is not to blame. The rapist shouldn’t done it and that is it! Ask them how to support them. This will make them comfortable and easier to open up to you.

Wrong: Weren’t you drunk? How can you be sure you didn’t want it? 

Having sex with someone while they are drunk is called a rape. Doesn’t matter if they wanted or not, it is still a rape. When someone is drunk they mind is all over the place, and they can’t think straight. Because of that their decision when they are drunk can be different from when they are sober. Knowing someone is drunk, you have responsibility to stop and if not you are being aware that you are raping someone.

Of course someone being drunk

is perfect for rapist, it is so easy to rape someone and so many rapists take advantages of someone being drunk to get away with it. If you want to be sexually active, you have to take responsibility, and that means learning about consent and knowing when it is given. Unwanted sexual experience can traumatise someone for life. Entourage the victim that speaking up about it, is a good thing and that they should keep speaking about it. Keep telling them that going through this experience make her stronger.

What should you say?

Wrong: Don’t tell anyone, it can ruin your future.

Sharing your experience, can only brighten your future. This is something you had no control over and also nothing to be ashamed about. If you were a rapist there would be plenty to be ashamed about, but you were victim. If someone thinks badly of you because of this experience, it makes them a coward. But most people would not think badly about you, because you have been raped. Most people will admire how strong you are. You shouldn’t be putting wrong ideas in victims head, it is not right. You should be telling them, how wonderful they are and how loved they are.

What should you say?

Wrong: I told you there was something off about them.

If they even get slight feeling they could have done something differently, they will start blaming themselves. Don’t make it harder on them. Make them feel that whatever they have done was enough. They couldn’t prevent that from happening. Trust me saying I believe you will do them much more. Maybe I believe you is not big deal, but when you keep hearing you are making this up, when you hear someone say I believe you it makes you 100 times much better.

What should you say?

Wrong: What were you wearing? 

It doesn’t matter what you were wearing. Rapists rape for power not because of what you were wearing. Some straight rapists tend to rape gay people or even rape children. It doesn’t matter, you should be allowed to wear whatever you want to. No one should control what you wear or be triggered by what you wear. Know that way too many times it has been proven that clothes just didn’t matter. So instead of questioning them, ensure them their clothes didn’t matter. What they wore what not the reason. It is important for them to hear that

So how well did you do it?

And as I mentioned not having all the answers correct, doesn’t mean you are not ready. Reading through the entire article will make you ready, so make sure you read everything I wrote under the questions. Don’t be too hard on yourself, when you haven’t been through something like this it is hard to understand, But I feel sexual assault is very taboo topic and need more attention.

Like view years ago

I didn’t know much about this topic either and thought certain things that people do are fine, but I learned they are not. I learned a lot from following accounts that are focusing on this topic, and reading a lot about it, but also when you yourself go through this experience you learn the most by experiencing this yourself. It is way easier to learn when you have been through this, and much harder when you haven’t been through this.

This is very hard experience to go through and I don’t wish on anyone, but also when people speak up about it, it does bring awareness to this topic.

Hopefully you learned something from this article, and if there are any questions please write in comments!

Reminder: The language you speak with sexual assault victims matters!

Everything you need to know about body positivity

Everything you need to know about body positivity

We live in society, where they try so hard to make you feel bad about yourself. They make you think your body is not good enough, just so they can gain something from you. They want you to be insecure about your body, so you go and get things done to yourself, or buys pills or programs to look enough in their eyes. It is so wrong to make someone feel they are not good enough, just so you get something from it. And it is so easy to follow into this trap and even harder to get out of this trap. You got to be aware of what is happening and to always keep telling yourself you are good enough, and sometimes that can be hard and challenging. Let’s be honest most of us have been there at some point of our lives and sometimes it seems so impossible to get out of it. But luckily there is beautiful movement called “Body positivity” that will help you out with that. A movement that did wonderful things to many and can do the same to you too. So in today’s article I will be covering the following:

What’s body positivity

Why it is good for you

How you can practice it

P.S  this is collaboration with thatnastsyfeminist so this article has two parts, she will be talking about body neutrality, make sure to read entire article to find out where to go to read part 2. If you have been enjoying my content, you will enjoy her content too, her aesthetic is everything. Just take a look at her blog and instagram, they are too beautiful! 

Pause: Comment down below what you think is body positivity?

What’s body positivity:

We live in society, that thinks in their mind ideal body size is good enough. Their ideal body size is skinny, but also not too skinny, so anything else is just not good enough. Our society only celebrates in their mind the ideal body size and shames everything else. What our society fails to realise is that we are not designed to have their ideal body size. We are all different and our bodies are different. It is not possible to have the ideal body size and also it would be boring too. But sadly because of the way our society thinks, many people feel bad about themselves and feel they are not good enough. They also develop very unhealthy relationship with their body, which can’t be good for anyone. But also I get it, when you keep hearing it, of course you would think it is true.

Body positivity movement was created to empower and shed light on plus size women and men or any type of body that is not considered ideal body type. It is trying to destroy the false beliefs that our society created regarding our bodies. The movement avocados the acceptance of all bodies regardless of physical ability, size, gender, race, or appearance.

Goals of body positivity are:

  • destroying false beliefs our society has about our bodies
  • encouraging the acceptance of all bodies
  • help people build the confidence and acceptance of their own bodies
  • addressing unrealistic body standards

Body positivity focuses on teaching people to have healthy relationship with their bodies. By making them see beauty in their bodies and making them see unrealistic things they were taught by society. Teaching them for example that food is not an enemy, rather your bodies friend and that we shouldn’t be afraid of food. Or exercise even though it is seem as something good for you , body positivity teaches people that you don’t have to exercise. It high lights the importance of doing things that make you feel good, not making you do something. Body positivity is all about seeing the beauty in yourself and your imperfections.

Pause: Comment down below why you think body positivity is good for you?

Why is body positivity good for you?

Not feeling good about your body, can damage yourself more than you think. When you don’t enjoy who are you or how you look, it will make you very unhappy. You will end up being in very dark place that can lead to depression. Or not loving your body can lead to eat disorder, which will damage your health. Having low self-esteem and not feeling good about yourself can’t be good for anyone, so there is when body positivity movement can really make difference for you. Having someone teach you that what you been taught about your body is false, and teach you that your body is enough will help you so much. Seeing all types of bodies being celebrated, will make you feel good about yourself. And not only will you feel good about yourself, but your confidence will increase so much. It has been proven that more confidence you have, the more you are willing to do things. When you have low-esteem you miss out on things while having confidence you are willing to do more things. Reading about it, watching and observing body positivity will make you love your body. You won’t be able to hate yourself, because of all the positivity and that is why body positivity movement is so powerful.

Good things about body positivity:

  • Loving and accepting your body has been proven to decrease a chance of having a depression
  • Body dissatisfaction has big impact on self-esteem, so practicing body positivity will improve your self-esteem
  • Body positivity can also prevent eating-disorder and we all know eating-disorder is just very unhealthy
  • Increasing your confidence, you will be worrying less what others things about you, and in general having more happy and healthy life

Before reading, comment down below: give us some ideas how to practice body positivity?

How to practice body positivity:

Yes you love this movement, and you are very impressed by it, but you don’t know how to start with it? How do you start applying it into your life? Because the movement is amazing, but it won’t do anything unless you start applying it and are willing to do so.

Affirmations:

I think affirmations are one of the easiest, but yet the most powerful way of practicing body positivity. Go to Pinterest and search affirmations and pick the once that resonate with you the most. I would say pick 5 to 10 affirmations and then save it on your phone or make a board for it. The great thing about Pinterest is when you search affirmations, they will keep showing more and more, so you can always new affirmations. After you saved 5 to 10 affirmations, you will be reading them every morning before your breakfast. Saying positive words to yourself even though you might not fully believe at that moment, will over time shift your beliefs into believing it.

Follow accounts on social media that promote body positivity:

We need to be aware who we follow on social media. We spend a lot of time on social media, and we need to be only following accounts that make us feel good about ourselves. Seeing posts about loving your body and telling you all bodies are beautiful, will eventually shift your views on your body too. What you consume is going to impact how you think, so be aware of who you are following. Some can be amazing creator, but if they are not serving you well, you don’t need to follow them.

Drop all the expectations how your body should be:

Your body is here for you, to hold you, and shouldn’t be one way or another. It is your body and only body you will ever get, and you just need to accept it. Not only accept it when it looks good, but to always accept it. Learn to see beauty in your imperfections!

Stop comparing yourself to others:

One of the biggest mistakes you can make, is comparing yourself to others. Like we are all different and you can’t have her body and she can’t have yourself. So comparing yourself to others will just give you unrealistic expectations, and will end up making you feel bad about yourself. Instead of comparing yourself to others, how about you admire unique things about others and then mention unique things you admire about yourself.

Throw stupid fashion rules in the trash:

Our society made up this stupid rules like fat people can’t wear short skirts, or too revealing clothing. Also apparently bikinis, tank tops or crop tops are forbidden for people who are fat, like what? How about you mind your own business! If you feel like wearing bikini go for it. True fashionista will know, when it comes to fashion you can make anything work doesn’t matter how you look. Fashion doesn’t discriminate, it is the society that made up this stupid rules. So let’s unlearn this stupid rules, and wear what we want!

Have go to strategies when negative self-talk hits:

You can be the most confident person on this earth, but you will still sometimes deal with negative mindset and negative voices in your head. It is part of being a human, it is hard to control your mind. Even if you are very positive person, your mind observes what it hears and sees, and sadly you live in society that loves to bring people down, so sometimes you mind will be negative because of this. You got to have view sentences you can tell yourself when this happens for example:” I am enough”. You can also use for example bracelet that will remind you, you are enough. Whatever will make negative mindset go away, use it!

Consume everything body positivity:

You should be reading books about body positivity, watching movies about body positivity and listening to body positivity podcast. The more you consume the most effect it will be. You won’t be able to hate your body after consuming so much positivity. Check out my instagram stories, to find out great podcasts, movies and books about body positivity.

Take care of your body:

Nothing says more loving my body by taking care of it. Your body will feel good when you take care of it. If you feel too overwhelmed, take a break and take a day for yourself. Feed your body with quality food, and no that doesn’t mean having a toxic diet, but giving yourself a quality food. Also move your body, go walking or whatever exercise you prefer, and this is not promoting losing weight, but promoting healthy lifestyle. You don’t need to workout, but moving your body is a must. And of course taking care of your hygiene is also a must.

Body positivity is such a beautiful movement, that can help you improve yourself and your body image. Having healthy relationship with your body, will help you in so many ways. You really just got to start applying this movement to your life, because after you start applying it you can’t never go back. But body positivity movement is not only movement out there, that can help you when you are struggling with body image. There is movement called body neutrality, that can help you feel good about your body, and you can learn all about it on thatnastsyfeminist’s blog post: https://www.thatnastyfeminist.co.uk/post/lets-talk-body-neutrality-blog-post

Contraceptives Quiz: How Much Do You Actually Know About Contraceptives?

How Much Do You Actually Know About Contraceptives Quiz?

Taking this Contraceptives Quiz is important because contraceptives are very big and confusing topic. As a woman you probably used some form of contraceptives in your life, and as a woman you need to learn about it. Sadly they leave this up to us instead of getting education around this topic. So many doctors give us just some random contraceptives that we have 0 knowledge about. We start taking them without knowing the side effects and sometimes this can have bad effects on your body. These contraceptives control how you feel, body changes and your health. So educating yourself about them is a must. Because we still live in system where they don’t care to teach us about them.

For example I am very against

birth control pills, because from all the research I do find all the side effects are not worth it. I get it sex without condom might be better, but seriously I have always been a healthy person and I strongly feel this could change if I start taking these pills. Of course I can’t be 100% sure and also I am not saying you shouldn’t do it. But you should do your own research and decide if it is worth it or not. Decide what is the best for you and your current situation. I did one time take Plan B pill and some would never take them. Because sometimes side effects can be really strong. They say that with Plan B one of the side effects is that you period can be quite irregular and can also be even more painful.

I decided to take it anyways,

because I personally have healthy period and also barley have any pains so I knew for me it wouldn’t be as bad. After taking Plan B I just had one period little lighter than usual and that was it no pain or irregular periods. So see you really need to get to know your body and yourself. You need to decide what is the best for you. One of my friends also took one time Plan B and for 6 months she had very irregular period. For example one time she had period for 2 weeks. That is crazy, that was for sure no fun, but in her opinion she felt better taking it than not taking it.

You also have to ask yourself

what is important my body or my mind. Do you want to be healthy, but then be very stressed out because you might get pregnant. Being certain that you won’t get pregnant is good enough reason to take it. So today my lovely ladies I am testing you to see how well do you know contraceptives and in second article that will come next week I will be giving you all the information you need to make the right decision , if this sounds good to you let’s start this Contraceptives Quiz:

True or False: You can get Plan B without a prescription or ID

Some people out there think Plan B is abortion pill, which is false. See here is the problem we have because we don’t get educated on this topic. Plan B is a pill that prevents a pregnancy before it starts when used after unprotected sex or if birth control fails. The reason it doesn’t work when you are already pregnant is because Plan B works by temporarily delaying ovulation. This means if there’s no egg, there can be no fertilization, so because of that there can’t be pregnancy.

So basically you take Plan B when you find yourself in situation where you were unprotected during sex. Take Plan B as soon as possible, the sooner you take the more effect it will be. You have up to 5 days time to take Plan B. Taking Plan B won’t have any negative effects on your body for long term. Just as I said maybe more painful and irregular periods. Also little reminder, yes Plan B is effective but they don’t suggest you take it every month or so, so use it wisely.
