In a dystopian future 35 years after an ecological WWIII has torn the world apart, East African survivors of the devastation remain locked away in contained communities, but a young woman in possession of a germinating seed struggles against the governing council to bring the plant to Earth’s ruined surface.
One of the reasons why I don’t think men should be in the feminist movement
Set to follow the awesome comics written by our favorite Keith R.A. DeCandido, the film would follow John and Aeryn’s son, D’Argo (or Little D, as we will always refer to him). Because their baby was exhibiting a set of interesting powers that made him a magnet for galactic villains, we find that John and Aeryn hide their son on Earth to grow up. Now the kid is 19 and ready to go into space with his parents.
This is very important information.
TW: fat shaming, medical fat shaming, talk of medical procedure
I was reading about doctors and surgeon perspectives of fat people, there’s a common thread aside from the ol’ fat people eat too much and it’s their fault talk, that it’s hard to work on fat patients. Instead of saying “Why don’t…
Med student here, I noticed earlier someone posted the question regarding an article on webmd with the above headline. Several online media sources seem to have picked up this up too, all with similar headlines. I took a peak at the original article when a friend posted about it on facebook,…
Canada’s slave-owning history is being ignored, says expert, as Black History Month kicks off.
HOW DID I NOT KNOW ALL THIS!?!?!?!
'Cause history involving black people is always erased, that's why.
Because a lot of us were taught that once you got to north you were free, but if you could get the Canada you were safe from being dragged back into slavery by hunters. It was like Canada was best place you could be if you were trying escape slavery (per US history classes)
‘Author and historian Afua Cooper has described slavery in the Great White North as “Canada’s best kept secret.” She says that between 1628 and 1833, Canada had approximately 8,000 slaves, but it’s a part of the country’s history that is not well known.
“Canada conveniently forgot its own history of slave-holding, because that would make the country look immoral, indecent,” says Cooper […]
Before the British conquest of 1760 when Canada was still a French colony, nearly 60 percent of slaves were aboriginal and 40 percent were of African descent, Cooper estimates. After Britain took over, the ratio of aboriginal slaves declined as the British brought in more slaves from Africa, the West Indies, and the Caribbean, as well as from its 13 American colonies.
Slave-owners in the American South were largely plantation owners, but in Canada they ran the gamut, from merchants and fur traders to farmers and even religious institutions.
“The slave owners were everybody, in every social class,” says Cooper. “Members of the clergy owned large amounts of slaves.”’

Like I need more examples of “pro choice feminists” total failure to understand intersectionality. What wave is this again? eugh :(
compliance: tendency of patient to follow instructions of physician. generally used in instances of ‘poor compliance’ - as in drugs are expensive and have side effects, lifestyle changes are challenging, and maybe your jargon filled, authoritative instructions were inadequate. movement towards ‘adherence’ is good.
maternal effort: efficacy of parent’s pushing during childbirth. generally used in instances of ‘poor maternal effort’ - as in they just weren’t trying hard enough to get the baby out.
Why can I only think of two right now. There are so many more.
