have you ever heard about condoms or other methods “to not get pregnant” girl
Have you ever heard of pregnancies as a result of rape and abuse? Have you heard of the failure rates on contraception?
Have you ever heard of adoption agencies or police stations that you can literally drop your child off at for free if you can’t/won’t take care of him/her?
Have you ever heard of the thousands of children that just get circled through social services/foster homes because there are too many kids and not enough families to adopt them?
Have you ever heard of the millions of parents wanting & waiting to adopt those children because they can’t have kids on their own?
Have you heard that a report by Unicef says there are 143 million and 210 million orphans worldwide, and this is not including abandonment, or sold children. It is estimated that 5760 children become orphans every day. So to try to make the case that it’s the responsibility of someone with a uterus to give birth against their will because other people want children is bullshit and absolutely ludicrous.
for chinese new year they get all these famous actors and comedians together and they do a lil show and one of the comedians was like “i was in a hotel in america once and there was a mouse in my room so i called reception except i forgot the english word for mouse so instead i said ‘you know tom and jerry? jerry is here’
In Jamaica, attacks, murder and rape are common occurrences against LGBTI people, with little to no retribution or justice brought against those responsible. After being forced from shacks, derelict buildings, and their own families, many homeless LGBTI Jamaicans have found refuge in the storm drainage systems of Kingston—known locally as the “gully.”
For trans girls and gay men unable or unwilling to hide their sexuality, the sense of community and relative safety the gully provides acts as a welcome sanctuary, and for many, a hope of change to come. VICE News traveled to the New Kingston area to see what LGBTI life is like in Jamaica—where just being who you are can mean living a life underground.
