…. Do you know what it means? Lifting will give your body a toned look. What’s wrong with wanting to do weights to lose weight and look fit as fuck? It’s better than going to the gym and jogging on the treadmill for an hour. Why are you being judgemental pricks? We should be encouraging girls to lift! Challenge these preconceived notions etc.

ur just sayin’ that cuz u lift to tone up ur bodeh. do u evn no u hav lift bias bro?

Gosh jam it you’re right yet again. I dunno, I’ve just had my eyes opened to attitudes towards people in the gym. I think making fun of girls who want to lift because they want to be lean and toned is really stupid.

If you don’t get excited when you’re about to kiss someone then you probably shouldn’t be kissing them. It should get you riled up inside and should not be mediocre.

Shut the fuck up about vaccinations. Not everyone has to have them, not everyone believes in them. Uneducated fuck.

This isn’t an issue of belief or should even be up for discussion. It’s not a debate- like gravity or that the Earth revolves around the Sun isn’t up for debate. It’s a fact, whether or not you like it. Sorry bro.

And any ‘educated fuck’ knows that vaccines are necessary and everyone who can have them should have them.

Have a lovely day, sugar. 

Actually there’s a lot of research and knowledge supporting the fact that vaccines are NOT necessary. It is simply another thing that today’s health system is super big on, just like hospital births and c-sections. And a lot of people actually have long term and short term complications from getting vaccines. Ahem.

Dang guys, you thought I didn’t check my activity log every now and then? Because I knew shit like this would pop up. And, I just finished my block exam and am feeling fiesty.

Actually you’re wrong. That ‘research’ is either completely fabricated OR grossly misinterprets the data OR uses shitty research techniques to get the data they want- all which are grossly unethical, in case you’re curious. I’ve got slides from a recent lecture on vaccines (aka why I am so fired up about this nonsense). You can check out the citations on each slide if you don’t believe me… something unsurprisingly missing from literally every anti-vaccine comment I’ve gotten and website that I have visited. Show me your sources, honey, and if you do, I will blow them out of the water because not a single one stands up to current scientific research standards.

There are however tomes and tomes of research for the safety end efficacy of vaccines. Don’t believe me? Look at a simple google scholar search.

So! Here we go!

Holy shit, it’s almost like vaccines SAVE SOCIETY MONEY. In fact, they give money back to society, along with the other programs indicated by red arrows. Which would be really weird for something that is just a healthcare fad like c-sections and hospital births.

And most people have no complications for getting vaccines, and if they do, most of them are short term. In fact, it is devilishly hard to prove an adverse effect was because of a vaccine. Why? Because it’s how we’re wired. We falsely see connections and causes where there are none (called a type 1 error; you are rejecting a true null hypothesis). People are more likely to attribute an adverse health event to a shot- even if that shot is the placebo and the numbers are just the background rate for whatever health event in the population.

And here is a graph showing the sample sizes necessary to prove that an adverse event is caused or related to a vaccine.

You know what, it was a really good lecture and I’m going to share more more relevant slides in case any one else feels like contradicting me.

These slides show the public health impact of vaccines. Note the differences between the historical peak and post-vaccine era deaths columns. Because saving literally thousands of lives is totally a conspiracy you should beware of.

And this is why herd immunity is so important! See how high it has to be for measles? Guess what we’re seeing outbreaks of thanks to anti-vaxxers? Don’t forget that one of the deadly complications of measles is SSPE.

Look how Hepatitis A infections in older adults when down after kids started getting immunized. Shocking! Could vaccines be… good for …. everyone????

image

Ahem.

Also as a human with an immuno-deficiency I’d prefer not to die just ‘cause you are totally capable of surviving without vaccines.

did you know when you suddenly jerk awake while falling asleep, another version of you from a different timeline just died

This post messed me up.

It’s actually because your heart rate decreased so quickly that your brain jerks you awake to make sure you’re still alive.

i dont know wHICH ONE IS WORSE

What if you jerk yourself to stay alive

Its actually neither of those.  Can you please stop spreading false information, Tumblr?  You’re going to get caught out sooner or later and look like a fool.

What you’re referring to is called a hypnic jerk or sleep starts, and it happens when you start to fall asleep.  It can be caused by anxiety, stress, sleep deprivation, caffeine… a whole variety of things.   They have nothing to do with your brain trying to make sure you’re still alive - or another version of you dying for that matter.

So my mother has always been about a cm taller than me, if not exactly the same height as I am.  This was definitely the case 3 months ago. She was looking in my mirror today and gasped when she realised I had grown about an inch taller than her.  

Science side, how is this possible?  I’m 22, shouldn’t I have stopped growing?  I haven’t grown since I was like 18.  And to grow over an inch in 3 months?

Why do some women just shave all their eyebrows and then just paint them? I see it so often yet I don’t think I’ve ever met a person who finds that more attractive than actual natural hair taken care of.

Not really bashing but I don’t understand, is it just a fashion thing?

I know my cousin’s girlfriend does that.  She’s a tattoo artist and is AMAZING with make up as I’m sure you can imagine. Point is, she’s actually a red-head, so she has very fair skin and hair.  Her eyebrows are so fair that they barely exist, so she just waxes them off and paints on her own eyebrows.  They look beautiful, I must admit.  I’m not a fan of painted on eyebrows, but on her they look stunning.  I’m sure I’m biased but ehh

The Doll Test

This self hate thing is DEEP

this makes me mad 

This is a compilation of doll tests featuring children of many races.

This is so fucking important

This is the Clark Doll Experiment.  They found that black children in segregated schools were more likely to choose the white doll over the black one.  The original experiment was conducted in the 1940s, and they thought that perhaps they chose the white doll because of the fact that back then, violent play with black dolls was very common (Bernstein, 2011)  When the study was repeated in the early 1990’s, similar results were found. However, I wouldn’t call it self hate at all. I think a similar study should be repeated nowadays, but we need to make sure we keep an eye on the reliability and validity of the study.
