Some women with disabilities reported that they avoid regular visits to the gynecologist because services are so difficult to obtain.[70]  In a telling example, one study reported that a gynecologist caring for a woman who uses a wheelchair assumed she was not sexually active and, therefore, saw no need to test for STDs.[71]  In another example that arose during focus group research, a deaf woman spoke about her doctor’s negative attitude toward people who are deaf:


“The doctor had a mask on so I could not read his lips, but we had this interpreter with us, and [she interpreted when]  the doctor said, ‘Well, the Deaf woman should tie her tubes so she doesn’t get pregnant again.’”

coco chanel was a nazi

i say this with no hyperbole whatsoever

she literally worked for the nazis and benefitted from jewish shareholders in chanel being sent off to concentration camps when their share came into her possession

parisian consumers actually refused to buy a lot from her own ranges after 1940 because she was an infamous collaborator but british and american consumers kept on buying them and continue to glorify her

that’s nice

protect all of the young girls who’s bodies developed quickly and who appear to be older than they are. remember that these girls are still children and their mature physical appearance is not a reflection of their emotional maturity.

—Yeah.

—Well, I’m not. As far as I’m concerned, you’ve got to earn that title.

#martha jones appreciation day

One of the things I’ll always appreciate about Martha is that we got to see her in action as a doctor so often. This wasn’t a token job or a career. This was an essential part of her character. She was given real opportunities to act as a doctor, from performing CPR, to treating concussions, and even re-setting dislocated shoulders. And it influenced her every action; she’s just been kidnapped and drugged by Cheen but she’ll be damned if she let’s Cheen continue to use one of those patches while she’s pregnant. And being a doctor was so integral to her narrative, factoring prominently in her conflicts for respect. This was especially true with the Doctor, from their first interaction to her eventual departure.

You really gotta love Martha, the doctor.

There’s a pattern to the Peshawar attack that many of you fail to see. Yes, Pakistanis were killed, but that doesn’t tell me a damn thing about the context of the attack or whether or not the attack targeted a specific demographic that has suffered such attacks since the beginning of the WoT. The Taliban stated that they targeted the army-run children’s school because of the Pakistani military’s operation Zarb-e-Azb which, in case you forgot, displaced over one million Pashtuns in a month and caused outrage among the Pashtun population, with many claiming it was unfair targeting of Pashtun homes. The operation was meant to clear the North Waziristan agency of Taliban militants. Without Zarb-e-Azb, the Peshawar attack would’t have happened. This just goes to show that neither the Pakistani military nor the Taliban care about Pashtuns, because if they did, the people of Peshawar would’t have to bury the bodies of children, and Pashtuns would’t have to be trapped between their fights. As I’ve said before, the Peshawar attack (as with many other attacks) didn’t happen in a vacuum: There’s a context, and there’s an ethnic group. If you don’t care to mention these, then it doesn’t seem like you care at all. It might seem like ‘small concern’ to some, but to me, context is crucial. The attack didn’t happen because the Taliban doesn’t want children to go to school, the attack happened because of a military operation fully supported and financed by the U.S. And the ethnic group that was targeted today, has been targeted the same ways before, by both the military and the Taliban, meaning that this isn’t something new to Pashtuns. Once again, they were trapped between a fight, but that doesn’t seem important to many of you.

I Dream of a Day - Pakistan → watch it here

This dream is not what we see when we are asleep,
This deam is what keeps us awake all night.
If we were to stand as one, all our goals would finally be in sight.
Let us keep our differences aside, Let us all finally unite.

Seriously, those “Muslim person told me to avoid such and such a place on such and such a date” posts come out EVERY SINGLE TIME SOMETHING HAPPENS, they just swap out the dates. Snopes even has an entry on it. Muslims in Australia are afraid to go out in public right now in case vigilantes start retaliatory attack, but please, keep reblogging dumb ass posts and spreading more fear.
