so many of my friends are queer that i genuinely forget that the majority of the population isn’t on a regular basis
This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
THIS IS THE BEST THING I’VE EVER SEEN, NOT LIKE THE OTHERS, THIS IS THE BEST! THE BEST. THE BEST. THE FUCKING BEST.
THE FUCKING AFTER CREDITS SCENE
This video, I like it!
BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN JESUS CHRIST
NO I CANT BREATHE PLEASE
I don’t care what you’re doing, just STOP SCROLLING AND WATCH THIS
kitten vs humidifier
hIS TINY PAWS OMGOMGOMG
IT IS DOING A THING
I THINK GHOSTS ARE ESCAPING FROM THIS BOX HUMAN WHY DID YOU BRING THIS INTO OUR HOME
His face at the end, the poor thing looks so lost
This kitty is SO confused as to what is actually going on and what it’s actually batting at with its precious little paws…
HUMAN EXPLAIN THE THING
i love that we have an official number 10 cat I love britain
Literally the only member of the Cabinet I like.
(though I am now wondering what happens if/when there is a change in govt next year - does larry get to stay on if mili gets in, or does he go with cameron?)
(or will there be a situation like there was with humphrey, the old Chief Mouser, where a certain moronic paper spread the rumour that the new prime minister’s wife had killed him, and then she had to take a photo with her holding the cat and a recent paper to prove he was still alive, this is a thing that genuinely happened i stg the 90s were weird.)
(tagging @ galesofnovember in this because i just feel it would amuse her.)
I love the fact he is “serving with Freya”
The cats are like civil servants; if Larry is actually the Chief Mouser then he would remain at his post regardless of which party was in power. I think the cat before Humphrey served under Margaret Thatcher as well as Callaghan and Wilson and probably Heath.
If Cameron dislikes Larry as much as is alleged, he’d probably say that according to precedent, it isn’t the family pet, and therefore becomes Ed’s responsibility (though Labour really does have a bad track record with cats, so Larry will probably be kicked out by Miliband, just like the cats under New Labour)
Fun Fact: there was something of a scandal a couple of years ago because Larry isn’t actually very good at his job. It took him 6 months to make his first kill and he very rarely even chases mice, he mostly just watches them if he sees them in Downing Street.
An actual real life article was written in an actual national newspaper about the rumour that George Osbourne’s cat Freya had replaced him as Chief Mouser. Downing Street had to issue an official statement denying this and saying they share the post. Now you may think this isjust Brits being silly again but oh my friend you are so wrong, the government emplyoys 100,000 cats as departmental Mousers so the Chief Mouser is a very prestigious and politically influential position.
And do not even get me started on the fact that joint Chief Mouser Freya has been accused of being a Chinese Spy by very reputable newspapers.
Seriously these cats are the gift that keep on giving.
Just filled out my health insurance forms!
yeah!!! fucking around with health insurance forms!!!!
I hate when people complain about “oh health forms are stupid they want my biological sex instead of my gender!!!!” or “they only have male or female!!!”
There’s a reason for that, you dumb fucks, and they’re referring to biological sex
Different health risks are present in different sexes, and whatever gender is in your head does not change the fact that if you were born female, you have a higher risk for certain cancers and osteoporosis, and if you were born male you have a higher risk for heart disease and often a shorter lifespan than a female.
In other words, your biological sex is an important factor in health and health insurance, and your special snowflake status doesn’t change that.
Coulda said it nicer but it’s true; it’s about health.
No. There gets a point where nice doesn’t work. There’s too many stupid ass angsty teens on here that are gonna get themselves seriously hurt or sick because they wanna be a special fucking snowflake. Lemme tell you a thing. Doctors don’t give a flying fuck what you identify as. All they want to know is do you have two X chromosomes or an XY? Because cancer and lupus and certain medicines don’t give a flying fuck what pronouns you use. This is about your fucking LIFE. stop being angsty for TWELVE SECONDS because when you’re in an ambulance or going into cardiac arrest or whatever the situation may be, it’s ESSENTIAL that you get your head out of your ass long enough to tell them your BIOLOGICAL SEX that you were BORN WITH. It literally may save your life.
this is all very violent imo
it’s not but ok lol
hi im one of those doctor types you idiots keep using as an excuse to yell at trans people
every single thing you’ve said is incorrect, and you do not know what you are talking about
I may need to know what organs a patient does or does not have, their hormonal status and history of exposure, and even their karyotype. Ideas like “biological sex” can often imply a lot of this. In medicine, that isn’t good enough. We have to be able to catch exceptions, side-effects, sequelae, and anomalies that might affect only one in a million patients. Exceptions to any one or more elements of the “biological sex” paradigm are much, much, much, much more common than that.
You genuinely do not know a patient’s chromosomes until you’ve run an expensive test, and even then, who knows! they could be a mosaic. Whether this information is important, and when, and why, depends. It all completely depends. A gender/sex/whatever marker on a form is not and never will be important. No matter how you cut it, is and always will be a miniscule source of information. Frankly, by disclosing a trans background on this form, the OP has made it more diagnostically useful to a clinician than that form has ever been before - we trans people are statistically very uncommon and tend to encounter distinct hardships and challenges that are highly relevant to our medical needs. Even then, it would still be no substitute for actually interviewing the patient.
So that’s the other thing you House addicts don’t have a clue about. Good doctors do “give a flying fuck” about how the patient identifies, because a patient’s background is absolutely key to their health. Knowing a patient’s basic demographics can help me think about what may be more or less likely in terms of their care needs.
More importantly, it helps me treat my patient with respect. This is both the decent thing to do and an absolute minimum requirement for being able to get anything done. You sneering choads couldn’t cure a side of beef.
