"Originally posted by gabrielleabelleat Mississippi Personhood Amendment
Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness."

Gah!
*takes deap breath*
Look, I just bought ACII. I've played it, as much as I've been able, for the past week or so. To be clear? It is AWESOME. I mean, in what other fandom do you get Leonardo da Vinci as your sidekick? *grin* Ezio and Leonardo... like Batman and Robin. Except Leo's much less flamboyant.

Anyway. I've just found the last of the hidden symbols and I need to vent.
(Warning for POSSIBLE SPOILERS for a game that's been out for over a year. But more likely is that you won't understand a word if you haven't already played through this yourself)

AAAaaah! Adam and freaking Eve! Arcaic! The ORIGIN OF THE SPECIES!
You don't understand, huh, Ezio? Well NO SHIT! Of course you don't! How could you? THE TRUTH is so much more complicated, and is yet so simple. Lies. Restrictions. ...Entrapment. That's why: "Nothing is true. Everything is permitted."  Everything. Freaking EVERYTHING that it's all built upon are just lies. Many things have grains of truth in them, but they have been twisted to show an entirely different picture.

*sigh*
Well, you probably didn't get much out of reading this, but it helps me to rant a bit when I get a bit - you know - obssessed. ..I didn't write that much, but this has helped me think, so it still has some purpose, I guess.



- By the way: I keep hearing that "tinkling" sound the game makes when you're close to a chest, feather or a locked symbol. Is that normal? 8I

...and isn't Altaïr's armour sigh-worthy? I think it's sigh-worthy. *dreamy sigh*
Aaand one more thing: The Bleeding Effect? Do. Not. Want! That is some creepy-ass shit.


Anywho.
Bläh.

Ok. So.. Eh. Now I've got a livejournal-account. Obviously.
Now, I can't imagine someone actually finding any sort of interest in what I'm writing here. But just in case someone does:

Hello, Everyone!
I just watched Terminator: Salvation the other day. No, I'm not going to post any spoilers here (Without warning you beforehand).
Oh. My. God. What a ginormous load of crap. I mean, seriously? I walked out of the theater not knowing if I should laugh or cry. I can only imagine Christian Bale's reaction when he reads the reviews. If he got that pissed off about someone getting in his light, there's no telling what the guy will do now...


In other news: There's this guy that I met at new years eve (Micke). We talked pretty much the whole evening (nothing more. get your head out of the gutter!). And me being me, just went on and on about the weirdest things. As in "Do you know why the ancient Egyptians had such bad teeth?". No, I'm neither kidding nor exaggerating. I'm Ebba, and Ebba does stuff like that. So, anyways. We ended up exchanging phone numbers (Yeah. I know. I couldn't believe it either). We talked a few times, and texted each other, deciding when and where we were going to meet. But, (because I'm me) I kinda, accidentally, blew him off.

K. I'm gonna try to finish this tomorrow. Now I gotta go to sleep.. :P
