I know there’s a blog that’s putting Cultureshift’s words onto images. Frankly, though, the less attention we give Cultureshift, the better. I know the blogger is a royal, grade-A asshat – and I also have given in to replying to some of his inane comments – but unless he’s harassing someone, I think we should ignore him.
The less who know about him, the better. That’s why tumblr took his tags away and made it so he doesn’t show up in the notes section of posts.
The more attention he gets, the more things tagged to him, the more his name gets around, more people will support him or encourage him and his brand of hatred.
I post pro-choice things frequently, but Cultureshift doesn’t seem to care unless I’m giving him my glorious attention.
I can’t blame anyone for wanting to argue with him, of course. I definitely understand. I just feel that a big thing that drives him is attention.
You couldn’t be more wrong, as usual. I am actually very reserved and do not ‘crave’ attention. My passion is not driven by the attention of those who place their own lives above those they should give that life to protect. It is driven by a desire to end the fundamental violation of a certain class of human being’s human rights. I could no more ignore the human atrocity of abortion than I could have ignored the Jewish Holocaust had I lived in that era.
I was the result of an unplanned teenage pregnancy and I know I owe my life to the fact that abortion was illegal at the time. My little sister was killed by abortion shortly after Roe v. Wade was decided in January, 1973. Although I never had a chance to grow up with her, I love and miss her. And I will never let her life be forgotten. I will honor her memory by saving as many other prenatal children as I possibly can. And when abortion is once again outlawed, I will know that I was on the right side of history. I will know that other people’s little sisters will be protected by the law.
You placed your own life above that of your child’s life, and now you advocate for others to do the same. When the day comes that you stop fighting for the right to kill the weakest and most vulnerable among us, when you finally embrace the dignity of all innocent human life, I will be here to help you recover from the tragedy of having ended your sweet child’s life. You are better than this. We all are.
