So my mom and I have been working the same waitress job for 5-6 years now. She had been waitressing years before, but this is recently. Anyway, about… 15 minutes ago this guy she waited on left and told her to take care. Just that. Prior to this she had talked to him about Italy. Her people are from Florence, this and that, and she said she’s never been. She’s got 8 years of art education and she’s working a waitress job. It’s pretty… Sad and disappointing, I guess. Her and my father divorced 6 years ago and she hasn’t had a real job ever. Just been stuck in a small town she’s not from.
This man who we have never seen before tipped her 1000 dollars for a trip to Italy. Walked out, not another word.
Why does’t this have more notes
Why aren’t there more people like this in the world?

When did abortion become something to be proud of, to celebrate, and to venerate with symbolism?
It’s not about pride - it’s about erasing the negative stigma around having an abortion. 1 in 3 women* will have an abortion - it’s okay to speak up about it!
^^ Yes. There’s nothing wrong with being proud about your abortion. Whether you shout it from the roof tops are never tell anyone it’s your story, you shouldn’t feel shamed by stigma.
^^^ yes! It is not ABOUT pride, it is about telling the world there is nothing to be ashamed of. It is telling the world you can feel however you damn well please! 1 in 3 women. Yet how many do you know who are public about it? Women are afraid to speak, and that needs to change.
Honestly I think these women should be proud. They made a difficult choice and are standing beside it and they more then deserve to feel proud of it. Speaking out about having abortion is hard and in some cases dangerous and can cost you a lot.
Might I also add that “coming out” like this is brave as fuck.
