It’s not about whether a character is trans or gay. Gay characters make sense. People have been gay for millennia. Trans however. Not the case. In a high fantasy setting, how in the balls are they going to perform surgery where they change the sex of the character??? It makes no sense at all. They’d have to explain it. And remember, this is high fantasy, Game of Thrones is also in that category. This is a time where they would reach into your body with an object strikingly similar to a salad tossing spoon to yank out a small piece of arrowhead. Pretty sure they hadn’t figured out a surgery as complex as a sex change… The people complaining that there aren’t enough gay/trans people in stuff like this are just as bad if not moreso than the people who complain about gay/trans people being in stuff like this. Create your own fantasy world filled with nothing but gay/trans people. Make it so that being heterosexual is the minority. All the power to you. Good luck trying to create it. You don’t have to have surgery to be transgender. Lots of transgender people don’t. Transgender people, people who identify with the gender not corresponding with their birth sex, have existed before the surgery. And the existence of and recognition of a third sex or dual sex existed in pre-modern times in lots of places are the world.So, for one, your “how in the balls are they going to perform surgery“ question doesn’t actually matter. They don’t need to in order for transgender people to exist.But if they did want to include transgender people who undergo physical changes to reflect their gender/sexual identity, in a HIGH FANTASY world, there’s actually a really easy answer to that: *ahem* “How are you going to make someone trans in a fantasy setting full of magic spells, potions, and artifacts?” shout out to the elixir of sex shift for covering more than just a gender binary. also lets not forget that in ye old days (aka time of the ancient greeks (aka the bc years)) that people drank the urine of pregnant mares to feminize themselves. like, trans people find a way ;) …the fucking Sumerians had trans people, brosky.

Alive, Ariel, and Bad: waltdisneyconfessions It bothers me how male characters like Triton, the Sultan, and Chief Tui can all act very overprotective and try to stop their daughters from leaving home, but it's only Mother Gothel whose a villain because of it. It feels like a sexist double standard. takashi0: rainbowloliofjustice: lethal-cuddles: a-salty-scythe-meister: kayrowhitesyrup: someoneintheshadow456: valarie-lynn: waltdisneyconfessions: It bothers me how male characters like Triton, the Sultan, and Chief Tui can all act overprotective and try to stop their daughters from leaving home, but it’s only Mother Gothel whose a villain because of it. It feels like a sexist double standard. Triton was afraid of humans because his wife was killed, Ariel also had pretty much free range of the ocean if she had time to amass that massive collection. Sultan was…a sultan? Also probably kept Jasmine inside for her own protection. Chief Tui was terrified of the ocean because of past experience. Gothel kidnapped Rapunzel and only cared about the magic that kept her young. Yeah, totally the same situation and the only difference is sexual bias. Also…Frollo? Also Sultan said “I’m not going to be alive forever, I want to make sure you are provided for and taken care of” as the reason for why he wants to get Jasmine married. And he even says to Jafar “Jasmine hated those guys, she can’t marry someone she hates.” That shows he didn’t want her to be unhappy in her marriage.  Triton and Chief Tui know that life is dangerous. As someone who is an older sibling and helped raising her younger siblings I know that very powerful overprotective feeling. You know the dangers of the world. You know the world is uncaring and unkind. You know people aren’t afraid to play dirty and to hurt innocent people to get what they want. So you try to shield your children/siblings from such a scary world because you don’t want them to get hurt. You don’t want your child/sibling dying because someone was so uncaring of another life. Could triton and Chief tui be more understanding of their children’s dreams and passions? Yes! But again these are parents who faces the harshness of the world and wanted to protect their children from that. Jasmin is a princess, royalty are always going to have someone try to kill them, invade their lands, etc. at least sultan was allowing his daughter to choose the man she loved. He was aware of the dangers she faced but still wanted to make her happy. A lot of Disney parents are loving and caring and they want the best for their children, though sometimes like all parents they mess up along the way. Raising and caring for another human is tough. Frollo and mother Gothal are seen as villains because they aren’t trying to protect their “children” from the harshness of the world. Oh yes they say they are but it’s a way to control them. It’s a way to keep their “children “ under their thumbs. It wasn’t done out of love and care and a protectiveness. But control. Gothal only want repunzal for her magic hair to stay young forever. And Frollo didn’t think twice about killing a BABY! ^^ Disney dads truely only wanted what they felt was best for their daughters (sans Frollo). Mother Gothal kidnapped a baby and emotionally and mentally abused her for 18 years. ALL TO STAY YOUNG FOREVER BY USING HER HAIR! fucks sake The reason that mother Gothel is treated like a villain is that she has no actual care towards Rapunzel other than her magic hair.  Literally none.  Every other time, she’s emotionally and mentally abusive towards Rapunzel, lies to her, and gaslights her. She’s manipulative and everything she did was for her own benefit, not out of genuine love and care for Rapunzel.  That’s why she is treated like a villain. It isn’t a sexist double standard when she is genuinely abusive.  Meanwhile, Chief Tui, Sultan, and Triton have made mistakes dealing with their children but what parent doesn’t make mistakes? It shows them being people. People who wanted the best for their children even if they were overbearing or overprotective. One thing that has been relatively consistent among Disney is that they show parents as people who are not as understanding as they should be towards their kids but ultimately still good people who just want to do the best thing for their kids rather than showing them as ungodly saints who never make mistakes and never do anything wrong.  Hell, even though she isn’t Disney per se, you could easily include Merida’s mother as a counterpoint in all of this. Elinor behaves in similar ways that Chief Tui, Sultan, and Triton do regarding their daughters. Elinor is overprotective and overbearing, she destroyed Merida’s bow out of frustration and immediately regretted it, etc.  Yet she is never shown to actually be a bad person. She’s shown to have made mistakes, just like they did, but not an awful person or villain.  #tldr; the reason mother gothel is a villain is because she’s emotionally abusive#me thinks the person who submitted this didn’t really watch the movie#because you can see every moment of abusive that she puts rapunzel through…#STARTIGN WITH KIDNAPPING HER

Advice, Apparently, and Beautiful: magicianmew: laughterkey: ryanhatesthis: yournewapartment: bodecats: pools-of-venetianblue: this is the purest video you will see all day, it includes not only practical advice on how to make cats feel comfortable but also: the most patient and long suffering clawdia bob ross, but a vet  squish the cat squish the cat, but with a towel absolute unit mr. pirate a little chubby but quite beautiful please watch this immediately Squish! That! Cat! I considered myself to be well versed on cats/communicating with cats. I’ve lived with at least two cats my whole life, and currently live with two very different cats who I love. Apparently most cats are shoulder cats? My cat Mason has always been very nervous about going up on people’s shoulders, so I thought I’d try the “shoulder cat” technique. I had to help him up on my shoulders because he’s never done it himself before. But once I got him up there I squished him, he started purring like nobody’s business. I carried him around our entire apartment, up and down staircases, and he was so happy. He didn’t try to leave once! When I put him down he head butted me and meowed and was super affectionate. And of course I gave him a treat. TLDR- Even if you live with cats and think you understand cats, please watch this video.  This is honest to god one of the best videos I’ve ever seen Always reblog Pirate wants more shoulder. 💓

My boss and I were promoting someone and she failed the test because she answered that question as “slightly agree” which in the results tells them that she is someone likely to steal because she believes everyone does it. When we asked her about her answer, it turns out she picked what she did because she’s cynical and does assume that people steal but didnt agree with them doing so. she almost sued the company for not promoting her based on that but chose to leave instead. We lost a good employee because corporate decided these tests were a good way to screen for “good” employees.tldr these things are poorly designed, ambiguously worded, and structured in ways that are designed to eliminate people because the intention of the questions is never made clear. these tests are evil. this sounds like an ableist disaster for people who aren’t neurotypical and who struggle with reading signals   When I went to get diagnosed with ADHD, the neuropsychologist couldn’t figure out what was going on, because on paper I’m apparently floridly psychotic.  No, the questions are imprecise, and I am hyper-literal and extremely honest.   “Do you often see things that other people do not see?”  Yes.       The question I was answering:  “Are you especially observant?”      The question the test was actually asking:  “Are you having visual hallucinations?”  “Does your environment ever have special messages for you?”  Yes.        The question I was answering:  “Does the sudden sight of a rainbow during a    bout of doubt and self-loathing make you feel as though the world is trying to cheer you up?”       The question the test was actually asking:  “Do you believe that your toaster is trying to convince you that the neighbors are spying on you?” Five years later, I bombed a psych eval for a park ranger job for the same sort of thing.  Tread carefully, darlings.   ^^^^ that is actually such a huge issue with diagnosis!!!! and I’ve thought I didn’t experience symptoms for ages that I actually clearly had all along because of things being phrased super weirdly and confusingly :( And this is why McDonald’s never called me after I applied Yeah, this is why this kind of thing in job apps needs to be illegal. A lot of discrimination is well hidden. Oh! That explains why even having friends and my then-husband proofread these every time didn’t even work. They may not be as weird as me, but they’re not neurotypical. We all read the questions tantefledermaus mentioned as observational skills! Fuck. This explains why I’ve failed all of these fucking things. My sister said to answer these as if you were a really passive person who relied on management/authority to tell you exactly what to do/think. Protip: my Dad is a hiring manager at Home Depot and he told me the system they use (with the stupidass pointless 500 question quiz) is designed so it filters out people with neutral answers. Several months ago I applied for numerous jobs, each of which required their own dumbass tests. To save time (and my sanity) i would click the “sometimes” or middle option for nearly every question unless it was serious. Nobody every called me back. Hell only 1 of the 8 places i applied to even messaged me back saying “thank you but we have gone with someone else”. Your applications wont even get seen unless you “pass” the quiz. So when all yall do fill out these dumb things be sure to pick strong yes or no answers. Never “maybe” or “slighty agree/disagree” Thank you for that, cause I do that a lot. Like I legit feel neutral on some of those questions. Tumblr with the life hacks It’s really bad for someone who isn’t neurotypical because often, these questions do contain language meant to filter us out. For me, I tend to notice the ones meant to filter out people with ADD, like myself. For example “do you have trouble focusing on one task” or “do you like to move around.” My normal answers to these would be “yes, but I have it under control” and “of course, no one can sit still for hours”. But corporations read them as “do not hire” It’s a bunch of BS. So I answer them like a yes man from office space. Works pretty well.

Bad, Clothes, and God: bex @ressurectionist 11m i dont care that much usually bc i know it's only a joke but the mikey we're seeing is finally truly happy after years of addiction stemming from severe mental illness and i'd find jokes like 'what happened to him' funnier if we acknowledged that it's a good thing he's happy now bex @ressurectionist 8m 'cos for all the 'what happened to twink mikey he became a het' etc type jokes we hardly ever see actual recognition for the shit he went through to become someone he actually likes and that puts a bad taste in my mouth bex @ressurectionist 6m bc no one seems to care that he's happy they just want him to go back to the anxious depressed wreck of revenge mikey because they like the aesthetic more?? nah mate i dont love his new style either but god at least he's not dying anymore holy shit bex @ressurectionist tldr i just think those jokes would be much funnier and in a lot better taste if we recognised that it's overall a good thing that he's changed from his mcr self because he's clearly much more mentally stable and much happier with himself now even if u dont like how he dresses 9:16 AM - 18 lan 2019 cellabrated: cellabrated: cellabrated: i’m not the best at articulating but i wrote some thoughts on twitter and couldn’t be bothered turning it into a tumblr text post so here u go ok to the people saying this goes for gerard: it doesn’t. put simply, people who say they prefer gerard back when he was suffering are (rightly) told off for it. that’s clearly not the case with mikey as that’s why i made this thread in the first place. not just that, but jokes about gerard’s current clothes/lifestyle are read as insults towards him, and people say they love bullets/revenge gerard’s aesthetic without comparing him to current gerard with a ‘what happened?’  like i say in the thread, it’s not the biggest deal, but not everything that applies to mikey has to apply to gerard as well oh i also feel i should say something i put in the tags of the original post - if you’ve made fun of current mikey for being a het or whatever i don’t mean that i think you want mikey to be miserable again, it’s just a post to say it’s overall a good thing mikey’s changed and that should be acknowledged a bit more!

Being Alone, Bunnies, and Struggle: chubby-bunnies fernsandbones vampiregirl2345 Vegans of tumblr, listen up. Harvesting agave in the quantities required so you dont have to eat honey is killing mexican long-nosed bats. They feed off the nectar and pollinate the plants. They need the agave. You want to help the environment? Go back to honey. Your liver and thyroid will thank you, as well. Agave is 90% fructose, which can cause a host of issues. Bye. vertiga Beekeeper here! Just wanted to say that the fact that vegans won't eat honey is very silly. Harvesting honey does not hurt bees. The invention of modern moveable-frame hives means we can remove a selected frame, extract the honey and return it without killing a single bee. If we destroyed the colony to harvest honey there would be no bees for next year, and beekeepers are incredibly careful to keep their bees healthy and thriving. We take *excess* honey that they don't need and it stops the hive from becoming honey-bound, meaning that there's so much honey the Queen has nowhere to lay eggs. And if the winter is harsher than expected and the remaining honey store runs low, we feed the bees plenty to make sure they survive. We also make sure that pests are controlled, bees are treated for disease, and the hive is weatherproof and in good repair, all things that wild bees struggle with. Keeping bees in properly managed hives where they don't starve or die from preventable disease is much better for them than being left to fend for themselves, and they're far too important to be left alone. All the fruits and vegetables that vegans *do* eat couldn't exist without bees, and the hives which pollinate those crops also produce excess honey which the beekeepers can sell to help keep themselves and their hives going. TLDR: BUY THE HONEY, HELP THE BEES. Source: vampiregirl2345 16,030 notes Agave vs. Honey

Keeping bees in properly managed hives where they don't starve or die from preventable disease is much better for them than being left to fend for themselves, and they're far too important to be left alone. All the fruits and vegetables that vegans *do* eat couldn't exist without bees, and the hives which pollinate those crops also produce excess honey which the beekeepers can sell to help keep themselves and their hives going. TLDR: BUY THE HONEY, HELP THE BEES. Source: vampiregirl2345 16,030 notes Agave vs. Honey

Anaconda, At-At, and Bad: theshitpostcalligrapher: morgan1yam: theshitpostcalligrapher: 99daysofr: theshitpostcalligrapher: theshitpostcalligrapher: it fuckin begins my dudes.  for expository context i started working on this bad boy at 1am whilst listening to a fight club audiobook for free on youtube and avoiding readings on international policy so u kno.  same as always.  #why would you dothis to yourself To test my abilities Ok hypothetically speaking how much would it cost for someone to commission something like this. about 3.8 souls on proper conversion rates, but I’m gonna start bidding at around $1500 CAD and we’ll go from there  Okay, so you’re pricing yourself waaaay low there! Not only for the cost of supplies, or time spent making it. But also for the cost on your soul and the cost of this level of quality shitmemeing.You are doing this by hand, and  In most cases, rates for book transcription are approximately $0.01 to $0.20 a word or line, $1 to $3 a page, $10 to $50 an hour, and $5,000 to $20,000 per project, depending on the difficulty of the project and the experience of the transcriptionist. Transcriptionist. Who would just be typing the words out on a keyboard. YOU ARE DOING IT PHYSICALLY. YOU ARE MAKING SHITPOST AAAART. This is effectively the Gregorian tomb of the bee movie, a potential master work. Also, you need to think of how much money you COULD be making during the time that you are spending working on this project. As well as how many months you want to not worry about snacks in the future, or having to pay off the carpel tunnel medication you’ll need for your wrist after this. (Health care is only mostly free.)TLDR: Start your bidding at at least 3 to 5 thousand… at the least. actually i redid the math on this one and you’re actually right. For commissions I charge 35 base plus 20 an hour, with higher base rates if it takes me more than a day in total (100 per day).I can usually do gothic calligraphy at a rate of about 330 characters an hour, give or take. the bee movie is about 40,683 characters in total, which totals me out at roughly 124 hours, rounding up. for just the hourly, that puts us at $2480, but the fact that that total time is over 5 days brings base fee up to 500 dollars. I use black india ink, which i could write whole encyclopedias with with just the 30 dollar bottle i bought 2 years ago, so that’s largely negligible. I use dip nibs which wear like motherfuckers and are always counted as sunk costs bc of how long their work life tends to be. The leather book cost me about 50 bucks after tax. There’s a Canadian tax thing called a “small supplier exemption” whereupon if you have a sole proprietorship entity (ie a small business/freelancing) that makes less than $30,000 a year (which i DEF DO NOT LMAO) you don’t need to register for GST/HST, which is why i don’t charge y’all taxes on stuff. Opportunity cost calculation is tricky, because as sole proprietorship, it’s difficult to quantify the potential gains lost. And in other employment, minimum in my province is 14/hour, and positions w/my degree usually start out at 20/hour anyways so thats a moot point. That totals us out at a starting bid, at cost, of $3030.00 CAD  and of course, for those who feel like it, there’s always a kofi that exists if you would like to donate to and take part in (spiritually at least) of the Tombe Of The Bee efforts

Charlie, Creepy, and Respect: Hari Kondabolu @harikondabolu When someone says "l am not politically correct," what I hear is"I don't really care how these words affect you.' smarter-than-the-republicans: ithelpstodream: everything-casey: ithelpstodream: i can’t believe all the people losing their shit over this post are the same people who make ‘triggered’ jokes. Here’s the thing. If you at all monitor your language based on your audience—avoiding curse words in front of kids, using bigger words in front of your boss—you obviously care about the impression your words give people.  Do you avoid talking about the attractive sex after your bestie’s breakup? Congratulations, friend, you’re being a decent human being. Your friend wishes you call them Charlie instead of Charlotte. It’s just a nickname. Would you say “No, your birth certificate says Charlotte so I’m calling you Charlotte?” Your co-worker tells you that he gets extremely uncomfortable when you clap him on the shoulder, due to a creepy uncle who did the same thing. Do you make a point to clap him on the shoulder every time you see him? It is really not that difficult to be “politically correct.” It does not mean that you must eliminate all opinions completely, it merely means—at a basic level—that you should attempt to be aware of your audience and how your words and actions affect them.  Don’t call it being “PC,” if you must. Call it being “aware and empathetic.” Being a human with decency and respect for other people, cultures, and experiences. ^boom. couldn’t have said it better myself. Tldr: You’re not being “word policed” when people expect you to have manners.

Arguing, Ass, and Children: Camille Echols added 2 new photos. 22 June at 07:45. I've been relatively quiet on social media about the "Anti-vax" movement. I've seen smart-ass memes saying "why would my unvaccinated kids be a threat to your vaccinated kids if you're so sure they work?" THIS is why. There are people who cannot have live vaccines, like my daughter, who had a kidney transplant when she was 2 years old. She got one varicella vaccine but couldn't get the second because she was immunosuppressed and instead of developing immunity, she would have contracted the virus. She was exposed to a child with chickenpox this weekend and now we are in the ER. She's getting labwork, injections of immunoglobulin and then we have to wait to see what the infectious disease doctor says. The incubation period of chicken pox is 7-21 days. So even with all we are doing, she could still become sick in the next 3 weeks. And that would mean an automatic admission to the hospital for IV antiviral meds. She could become very, very sick from this. Please, if you are someone who believes your child will get autism from vaccines, PLEASE educate yourself. There isn't a single peer reviewed study that came to that conclusion. And the people choosing to skip vaccinations put children like my daughter at risk. She has been through SO much already. And this was avoidable. so Let me address the recurring questions: 01 contacted her transplant nephrologist regarding her exposure, who in turn consulted with the infectious disease team at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and their solid organ transplant PharmD. It was the team's recommendation that I take Ashley to the ER to receive VZIG, which costs approx $5k and cannot be given outpatient. Titers were drawn prior to giving her VZIG. I never claimed that the child with chicken pox was not vaccinated. That is irrelevant. The resurgence of chicken pox, whooping cough, measles and other diseases that were nearly eradicated years ago is a direct result of a large percentage of the population deciding not to vaccinate their children without sound research the support that decision. As for those telling me to "educate myself," I am a pediatric RN with over 10 years' experience in transplant and chronic illness populations. I have had extensive education regarding vaccinations. I would not post about something I was ignorant about. .Those saying "it's just chicken pox, she won't die," please educate yourselves on transplant recipients. There are millions of people waiting for life saving organs. With those numbers, the odds are good that someone in your life has been affected by organ failure. <p><a href="https://black-girl-against-feminism.tumblr.com/post/169858354764/keyhollow-hannie-mylove-keyhollow" class="tumblr_blog">black-girl-against-feminism</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://keyhollow.tumblr.com/post/163004744915/hannie-mylove-keyhollow-hannie-mylove" class="tumblr_blog">keyhollow</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://hannie-mylove.tumblr.com/post/163002583620/keyhollow-hannie-mylove-keyhollow" class="tumblr_blog">hannie-mylove</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://keyhollow.tumblr.com/post/162999957525/hannie-mylove-keyhollow-hannie-mylove" class="tumblr_blog">keyhollow</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://hannie-mylove.tumblr.com/post/162998925645/keyhollow-hannie-mylove-keyhollow" class="tumblr_blog">hannie-mylove</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://keyhollow.tumblr.com/post/162992998800/hannie-mylove-keyhollow" class="tumblr_blog">keyhollow</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://hannie-mylove.tumblr.com/post/162991317210/keyhollow-illogical-bullshit" class="tumblr_blog">hannie-mylove</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://keyhollow.tumblr.com/post/162989996495/illogical-bullshit-anti-sjw-movement" class="tumblr_blog">keyhollow</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://illogical-bullshit.tumblr.com/post/162896691742/anti-sjw-movement-violent-darts-techno-gal" class="tumblr_blog">illogical-bullshit</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://anti-sjw-movement.tumblr.com/post/162887992421/violent-darts-techno-gal-memehumor-mom" class="tumblr_blog">anti-sjw-movement</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://violent-darts.tumblr.com/post/162637546645/techno-gal-memehumor-mom-gets-real-in" class="tumblr_blog">violent-darts</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://techno-gal.tumblr.com/post/162609433406/memehumor-mom-gets-real-in-facebook-post-about" class="tumblr_blog">techno-gal</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://memehumor.net/post/162520438508/mom-gets-real-in-facebook-post-about-why-the" class="tumblr_blog">memehumor</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Mom gets real in Facebook post about why the anti-vaxxer movement is so dangerous for her daughter.</p></blockquote> <p>Also, if you’d rather make dead kids than have the possibility of your own kid become autistic you are garbage</p> </blockquote> <p>Vaccinate.

Kids.</p> </blockquote> <p>Vaccinate your kids you stupid stupid people</p></blockquote> <p>No.</p></blockquote> <p>Then keep them away from the rest of us. I also hope you never have children, because that should be considered abuse.</p></blockquote> <p>I have children. They aren’t vaccinated. I wasn’t vaccinated. Nor were my brothers and sisters or cousins. Vaccines do not prevent diseases. Modern sanitation and plumbing. Every country that still has these diseases are the ones that are underdeveloped. They bring them vaccines and it only makes them sicker since their immune systems are already weak. I also know several moms who are nurses who don’t vaccinate.</p></blockquote> <p>Congratulations, you and yours may be the patient zero that will bring ruin and death upon a whole city, or more. </p><p>Modern sanitation and plumbing help. If you notice, polio didn’t stop being a problem until vaccines. </p><p>You have no proof for that.</p><p>I know several parents that swear by beating their children and using garlic instead of medications.</p><p>You’re increasing your and your kids risk of death, as well as the kids around you, by a lot. You are being protected by the very herd immunity you argue against.</p></blockquote> <p>Look up herd immunity origins. That’s not what it is. Did you know the polio vaccine is know the leading cause of polio related paralysis? Look it up. NPR article. Honestly there is so much to discuss I can’t even get into it. Just don’t believe what you’ve been told. The research and proof is out there. Look up the vaccine inserts themselves. If vaccines actually worked (which actually have very low success rates) and were totally safe- then I would be fine with it. But as it stands, there are way too many risks and not even discussion or concern for their safety. The vaccine makers don’t care if they are safe because they cannot be sued.</p></blockquote> <p>I know herd immunity origins. I’m a biologist. The basic meaning is when a majority of a group is immune to a disease, thus a disease is not able to spread efficiently. Vaccines work with your natural immune system. They create the antibodies just like your body would if exposed to the contagion. Vaccines aren’t magic, they’re a very dead very small amount of contagion. They are safe, tested with blood collected from horseshoe crabs, as their blood has special clotting properties used as its immune system in order to identify any other contagions, especially living ones, that could cause problems. </p><p>“On rare occasions, if a population is seriously under-immunized, an excreted vaccine-virus can continue to circulate for an extended period of time. The longer it is allowed to survive, the more genetic changes it undergoes. In very rare instances, the vaccine-virus can genetically change into a form that can paralyse – this is what is known as a circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus (cVDPV).</p><p>It takes a long time for a cVDPV to occur. Generally, the strain will have been allowed to circulate in an un- or under-immunized population for a period of at least 12 months. Circulating VDPVs occur when routine or supplementary immunization activities (SIAs) are poorly conducted and a population is left susceptible to poliovirus, whether from vaccine-derived or wild poliovirus. Hence, the problem is not with the vaccine itself, but low vaccination coverage. If a population is fully immunized, they will be protected against both vaccine-derived and wild polioviruses.</p><p>Since 2000, more than 10 billion doses of OPV have been administered to nearly 3 billion children worldwide. As a result, more than 13 million cases of polio have been prevented, and the disease has been reduced by more than 99%. During that time, 24 cVDPV outbreaks occurred in 21 countries, resulting in fewer than 760 VDPV cases.”</p><p>TLDR: People like you cause that polio shit</p><p>Vaccines are very successful. Find me a peer reviewed legitimate scientific study that states otherwise. </p><p>The vaccine makers can be sued and care very much, hence they reason incredible amounts of horseshoe crab blood is harvested every year to test batches. Vaccines are here to help you. It’s not a boogie man.</p></blockquote> <p>If you do not vaccinate your children, keep them away from the public. Just because you want your child to to die an early death, it doesn’t mean that we want the same.</p></blockquote>

America, Children, and Fire: Shaun King @ShaunKing Only in America can whiteness prevent the man who conducted the deadliest mass shooting in American history from being called a terrorist. 10/2/17, 8:01 AM li View Tweet activity 872 Retweets 1,446 Likes Note: This is being called the "deadliest mass shooting in US history." However, there have been several massacres of Native Americans by the US military and militias (Wounded Knee Massacre, Mountain Meadows Massacre in 1857, Tulsa Massacre in 1921, to name a few). The Wounded Knee Massacre was devastating — about 250 Native Americans were killed by American troops in the late 1800s. Only one man faced prosecution for the Mountain Meadows Massacre, but it was actually a Mormon militia that killed 120 men, women and children. The Tulsa Massacre ended with about 300 people killed by mobs of white people. People say the shooting in Vegas was the deadliest mass shooting because a gunman opening fire on a public space is what "mass shooting" has come to mean these days. We don't tend to put massacres involving military or quasi-military actors and those perpetrated by a group in that category. Before the 20th century, few mass murders were perpetrated by a single person. TLDR: The definition has changed over time. Whether or not you want to use this definition, it's important to remember Native history and the horrible massacres of this time, while also understanding the context and scale of the most recent shooting in Las Vegas.

Ignorant, Life, and Memes: Protesters don't block traffic to gain your support. They do it so you can see what if feels like to be stuck in a powerless situation How do you respond to this situation? Are you calm and peaceful? Do you want to spend years organizing political talks about it? Nope, you want to run those protesters over, kill them, kill them all. If you want to kill protesters who have you stuck in traffic, imagine what you would want to do to a system that patrols, harasses and kills you. The sooner you learn perspective the sooner you won't have to be stuck in traffic. Posted this earlier and was bombarded with "what about emergency vehicles what if I'm going to the hospital" etc etc. First of all, understand that these protestors are human, they are not trying to kill anyone, and they will let emergency vehicles pass by. You're not going to protest against an injust system and then choose not to let an ambulance through. There is only ONE instance of this happening after countless protests across the US. Next rebuttal "these people should get jobs; not everyone can just protest all day" these people do have jobs (thanks to our capitalist system you must have a job-jobs to survive bc things like healthcare aren't provided universally 🙃🙃) but are using their little free time to fight for equality and fight against a system that actively oppresses them. If you can spend your free time doing activities like watching TV, shopping, cooking, etc then congratulations but some people are tired of being victims of an oppressive system and want to fight back. "You're keeping people from getting to their jobs" if this is your response please reread the post because clearly you missed the point. TLDR: If you see a group of oppressed people protesting and your first thought is that they're wrong, maybe stop and consider that that have a reason to protest! Think about other people and imagine being ignored and silenced your entire life to the point where the ONLY way you can be heard is by shutting a highway down. 😞 Y'all if you follow me then I know you understand sexism so please apply these same concepts to racism and classism. It's super disappointing to see a bunch of privileged-ignorant-selfish responses when I post about things deeper than "puppies not patriarchy." stop! Think! Try to understand and empathize!
