I knew I should have brought my chilblain cream with me =\ Owww :(
it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.
I didn’t realise society should be distinguishing between “disabled” and “abled” people *confused*

except this is a post by @laurasykora. funny how her watermark doesn’t seem to be on this photo anymore.Please stop stealing posts. Especially personal and inspiring ones as this one :(
Definitely a shame about the stealing of the photos, but this is a huge inspiration to keep on at something that you find difficult at first.
Dentist in an hour and a half =\ really can’t be bothered! Would much rather stay here and read Harry Potter.
if someone has a fucking phobia of something don’t be an asshole and play with their fear for your own amusementUNLESS IT’S HOMOPHOBIA. THEN YOU ACT AS NON-STRAIGHT AS YOU CAN AND WATCH THE BLOOD POUR OUT OF THEIR EYES
In all honesty, I have a real issue with the term “homophobia”. It isn’t a phobia. It is pure intolerance, and shouldn’t be paralleled to the torment that phobia sufferers experience.
Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.
I’ve gotten more angry asks about this post than I have actual reblogs.
I literally put my coffee down, stared at the screen and said “Holy shit…”
Heart attacks symptoms are different for women. I recently learned this.
Everyone should know these things.
thanks to mainstream media and being unable to show breasts on TV, way too few people know about female signs of cardiac distress, and impending heart attacks. they only know about the “pain in the left arm” male symptom.
i had all these symptoms once and they sent me right to hospital
it was scary bc i didnt know these were the symptoms for female heart issues
Please, please, PLEASE, reblog this. i don’t know if I did save or called false alarm, with my boss’ life tonight. I felt I was being a bit paranoid, overreacting, but I told Mirage my thoughts and he, after reading over the article I showed him, immediately sprung into action and then shooed her off to the hospital. I don’t know if I did or not, but I knew she’d been super stressed. She’d off-handedly commented on her arm tingling and I asked her if she felt queasy on a hunch. I went to look at the symptoms and we went from there.
ALSO, heart attacks in women are much less likely to involve chest pain. So don’t think “oh I’m fine, time to put the kettle on” just because you don’t have chest pain. (For men, too, chest pain doesn’t always accompany a heart attack)
