Lately, feminists like Annie Lennox, bell hooks and Emma Watson have taken issue with Beyoncé’s sexual openness. While trying to discredit Beyoncé as a feminist, they seem to have forgotten one of the most important parts of Chimamanda’s speech in ***Flawless."What does a lady dress like, exactly? And who decided what a lady looks like? What bearing should one’s clothing have on one’s identification as a feminist? This is exactly the kind of misogynist policing we’ve fought tooth and claw against for decades, and to level this line of “reasoning” at Beyoncé is not only antifeminist, it is despicable." (x)
We should also note that Black Women are perceived and fetishized as hyper sexual. Which is why mainstream feminists willingly call Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea, and Katy Perry revolutionary and in charge of their bodies meanwhile demonizing Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Beyonce.
I think you mean locations for the next silent hill.
A tip from your favorite nurse
(that’d be me)
Always have eggs in your fridge
You just never know when someone will split their head open
Or cut their finger while cooking
And so on
See that membrane there?
While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg
Peel that there membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure)
The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches
If you even need them that is
Nature: 1, Band aids: 0
I did some research on this (because I do that now, fucking science get out) and it seems that this was done in the early 1900s somewhat frequently. It was used as a way to treat just about any kind of skin wound, from burn to cut to in at least one case an ulcer. It actually helps the wound heal not by preventing blood loss but by replacing part of the skin tissue and helping it grow.
It also helps in healing scars and reducing their visibility.
Also, if you have a splinter, smack one of these things on there and it will draw it out of your skin. No more shitting around with pliers.
it will also suck the poison stuff out of mosquito bites and stop them from being itchy
woaaah i didnt know!! awesome stuff :D
Did not know the mosquito bite or splinter thing! EGGS—IS THERE ANYTHING THEY CAN’T DO?
They cant fix the economy
Anonymous said: could voldemort have turned out differently if dumbledore approached him differently?
My thoughts just sort of poured out here so bear with me if things are worded poorly. Also keep in mind this is my opinion, nothing more:
I think about this all the time, because I feel like no one ever gave Voldemort a chance to be anything other than the villain. Like there is such a difference in the way Harry was handled and the way Tom Riddle was handled once they ended up at Hogwarts. Dumbledore regarded Tom suspiciously and treated him as guilty right off the bat, whereas Harry was treated pretty gently (outside of Snape). That affects a kid. If your words and actions constantly tell a kid “You’re bad, you’re bad, you’re bad”, they can internalize that and their self-worth and how they view themself can become warped. True, Tom was already showing signs of being dangerous, but let’s not pretend like that’s not reversible. Contrary to popular belief, Voldemort was not incapable of love. Instead, he refused to view the emotion as valid. And why should he view it as valid? It was an emotion no one ever afforded him, so it must not be important. I think it’s pretty sucky that Dumbledore knew to an extent what was going on with Tom and didn’t try to reach out to him. I also think it’s a huge a reason why he DID reach out to Harry, because he understood he made the mistake of not doing that once, to horrible consequences.
For the record, I don’t think any of this excuses Voldemort’s actions as an adult. At some point, you have to shoulder the responsibility of your choices and try to better yourself so you don’t continue the cycle of neglect. Which we all know Voldemort did not choose to do. And I also accept the possibility he could have turned out just as awful had Dumbledore reached out, but we’ll never know because even at 11, he saw Tom as a criminal to be controlled, and not a child to be better guided.
