I saw a news report about this on T.V., she was a straight A Student who had perfect attendance and everything. Everyone loved and respected her for her skills, but when she started this experiment and people thought she was pregnant, they started treating her like garbage. Even her teachers started looking down on her like she was scum of the earth. The only people who knew she was doing this as an experiment were her school principal, her health care teacher, her boyfriend, and her mother. Her own siblings thought she was pregnant!I mean even her friends turned on her, it was horrid. Very very sad, and as soon as she revealed during an assembly that the pregnancy was false, a lot of people were in shock as she brought up all the horrible things they said and did to her because they thought she was pregnant.The reason for the experiment was to see how people would react and treat her if they thought she was pregnant, as opposed as to treating her as the straight A “Perfect” student they usually did. And it proved that people were horrible scumbags to her as soon as they thought she was.

holy shit. this is fucking awesome

I read this chick’s book! It was so cool.

Her book is The Pregnancy Project by Gaby Rodriguez

Pretty sure I reblogged something about this in the past, but now someone’s posted a book title and I want to read this book

Black Dentist In All-White Practice Forced To Resign Over Ferguson Posts

Will those stellar free-speech advocates on the right stand up for Dr. Misee Harris, or will they remain silent?

Dr. Misee Harris, who also was the Black Bachelorette, just found herself in an impossible situation after posting support for Ferguson and Mike Brown’s family on her private Facebook page. Dr. Harris was given a choice to resign or shut up. Here’s the story:

Freshers is this week!

Which means uni is slowly starting back up, thank god. I have a meeting with my advisor of studies today and an intro to the year lecture tomorrow, then the real learning starts next week. We dive straight into dissection labs on the first day too, I’m so excited! Get prepared for me to start doodling all about anatomy again soon. ;)

video the school wants us to watch before small groups

Pt: For the past four weeks, I've been experiencing fevers, diaphoresis, fatigue, malaise, poor appetite, myalgias, arthralgias. Over the last 24 hours, my fever and my sweats having been getting even worse.

Student: Would you mind repeating that again?

Pt: For the past four weeks, I've been experiencing fevers, diaphoresis, fatigue, malaise, poor appetite, myalgias, arthralgias. Over the last 24 hours, my fever and my sweats having been getting even worse. I suggest looking up any terms you don't know! You don't want to look like a tool in your small group!

Student: So what do you think is going on?

Pt: I dunno. Maybe an influenza or something, but I haven't looked at this stuff since studying for my comlex exam *echos* comlex exam

Student: But this is a psychiatry vignette so I seriously doubt it's influenza, but my colleagues and I will consider all the possibilities. Now I'll perform a physical exam

**let's get physical plays**

Thank you problemedic for tagging me!

Once you get this you have to say five things that you like about yourself, then send this to ten of your favorite followers :)

I must admit this was quite hard for me to do as I’ve not been in a positive mind frame as of late hence I put it off for a…

Thanks for the tag. :) Normally I probably wouldn’t do this kind of thing, but my depression’s been coming back the last few weeks so I guess I could probably do with a little positive thinking about myself.

  1. I tend to keep coming back. I’ve had some bad phases in my life, mostly due to my depression/agoraphobia resulting in me doing something dumb, like losing jobs or dropping out of uni. But I always seem to manage to get back and make progress - two steps forward, one step back.
  2. I feel responsible for others. I’m driven mostly by my belief that if I can do something to help others, it’s my duty to do so. I’d like to think this is a good quality.
  3. I’m actually kinda bright and talented, despite my rock bottom self confidence. Don’t make me ever say that again.
  4. I have an awesome sense of humour. I’m the funniest person I know and I laugh at all my own jokes. Really, I can put myself into hysterics. That’s probably not actually a good thing.
  5. I’m doing a good job raising Penny. She’s a sweet natured thing no matter my influence, but I’ve been told time and time again that she’s amazingly well trained so I guess I’m doing something right.

This has been a too-much-information post brought to you by Frances.

personal I hate saying good things about myself but I guess that's why I should do it more often

A Voice for Men, a men’s rights site that is most notable for being featured as a hate site by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is currently hosting a conference on men’s issues in Detroit.

The images above are direct quotes of what some of the speakers at this men’s rights conference have said.

Sit back and marvel at the newest human rights movement.

Thanks to both David Futrelle at We Hunted The Mammoth for the excellent article that inspired this post and whey_ over at the againstmensrights subreddit for making the above images.

Please share this post far and wide so everyone knows exactly what men’s rights activists believe!
