Hello all you gorgeous females! I hope y’all had a fantastic day, doing womanly things. Ha. Right.
Actually, to tell you the truth, I was a little upset with something that happened today. On campus, a Genocide Awareness Protest was taking place, fighting for anit-abortion. Why? And why on Women’s Day?? They claimed that abortion was a level of genocide. To enhance this, they put up posters of dead, headless “fetuses” which happened to look suspiciously like dogs covered in red corn syrup. As I was staring, horrified at the scene before me, a woman came up to me and asked about my thoughts on abortion. I said I was pro-choice. This spurred her to talk about how wrong abortion was, and how it was wrong for a woman to “murder” her child.
To my relief, a pro-choice group joined in, rallying against this crazy group. I was so shocked at how they were presenting this kind of thinking at a university. I just couldn’t get it.
I am absolutely in no way saying choosing to not abort is a bad choice. But I think it should be a choice, not forced. Woman should do what they want with their body, especially if it means the difference between bringing a child into a bad life or not. If you want to abort or not, do what you gotta do.
So, with that off my chest, here are some fabulous, tasty cupcakes! Vanilla cinnamon cake with chocolate cream cheese icing. I made these from Joy the Baker’s new cookbook, ya know, the one I gushed about? I adapted them a little bit (I cant help it!) and they tasted great. I hardly ever make something simple and basic. It’s nice.
