"It’s only that—well, I’ve been a bit worried about him. I was hoping he may have talked to you."
"Why would he talk to me about—” She favored him with her best friendly-but-skeptical smile. “—Jedi business?”
"Senator—Padme. Please." He gazed into her eyes with nothing on his face but compassion and fatigued anxiety.
"I am not blind, Padme. Though I have tried to be, for Anakin’s sake. And for yours."
"What do you mean?"
"Neither of you is very good at hiding feelings, either."
"Anakin has loved you since the day you met, in that horrible junk shop on Tatooine. He’s never tried to hide it, though we do not speak of it. We… pretend that I don’t know. And I was happy to because it made him happy. You made him happy when nothing else truly could.” He sighed, his brows drawing together. “And you, Padme, skilled as you are on the Senate floor, cannot hide the light that comes to your eyes when anyone so much as mentions his name.”

Men who can’t cook, clean, or even do their own laundry are not “cute” and “in need of a woman to care for them”. They are spoiled brats so dependent on gender roles that they never bothered to learn the minimal skills to take care of themselves.
Anecdotes by medical practitioners"A woman came in for a baby check with her 6-month-old and she had what looked like chocolate milk in the baby’s bottle. So he started explaining to her as kindly as he could that she shouldn’t be giving her baby chocolate milk. At which point she interrupts him and says, ‘Oh that isn’t chocolate milk. It’s coffee! He just loves it!”
"I had a patient come in for an STD check. She was very upset and continued to tell me that she only had one partner. Progressing through my assessment, she further divulged that even if he was sleeping with other people it shouldn’t matter ‘because he uses a condom every time and he makes sure to wash it thoroughly after every use’.”
"Had a lady who measured her baby’s temperature by pre-heating the oven and putting one hand in front of it while the other hand was on the baby’s forehead. She told the nurse her baby’s fever was about 250 degrees.”
"Lady has to have foot amputated and is given waiver forms to sign pre-op. Buddy asks if she needs time to think about it. She’s very nonchalant and doesn’t seem to care much what they do. He gets suspicious and probes a bit as to why she’s not more concerned. She says she gets that they have to operate and it’s OK because the foot will grow back.”
"I had a couple who had been trying to conceive for over two years. I asked all the usual questions, how often do you have sex, any previous pregnancy, etc etc. Something seemed off to me during the consult, so I continued to ask questions. Finally I asked if he ejaculated while inserted into the vagina. Both parties looked confused.Turns out the couple was not having insertional sex at all. I had to awkwardly explain to them how insertional sex works. Diagrams were required.”
"Patient comes in, she’s upset. She’s pregnant, and she doesn’t understand why. She’s on the pill. Upon talking to her at great length, I find out that she only takes the pills on the days that she is sexually active – no other time.”
"Patient comes in with her bf. They are indignant, as if somehow I could’ve prevented [the pregnancy]. The problem? Well, the pills were bothering the girl’s stomach, so, being a gallant bf, he decided to start taking them instead.”
“I was explaining the treatment to the husband of a patient about to be discharged. He kept nodding and agreeing with me, but I knew it was flying over his head. Turned out a fundamental problem was that I was describing the drugs as ‘tablets’ and he had no clue what those were.”
Oh my god… I can’t decide if I should laugh or cry…
If this isn’t proof we need comprehensive sex education, I don’t know what is.
yeah this isn’t funny. i knew girls who thought you could get pregnant from giving head. Sex Ed and really generally knowledge of your biology is very important. i also maintain that EVERYONE should know the ins and outs of child birth.
Here’s one: A woman came to the hospital with purple vaginal discharge. Initial labs showed a hugely elevated glucose level in the discharge, plus a nasty infection. Patient interview revealed that the patient’s doctor had suggested she use “vaginal jelly” for dryness; not knowing that K-Y or other vaginal lube existed, she had been using grape jelly.

Alright, a few points to discuss. The two reasons to bring a bird to a center are a) is an abandoned baby bird or b) is injured. It is important to note that fledgling birds look a lot like injured birds. I’m just going to clear up the difference here, so you don’t make an unnecessary million-mile trek to a bird center.
If you find an abandoned baby bird
You need to absolutely make sure the baby is, in fact, abandoned. Watch for half an hour/a few hours (depending on how old it is) to see if a parent is still coming back to feed it. If the nest has been destroyed/knocked down, yes, put it in a box in a tree, wait and watch, especially if you have pets. No, the parent won’t be scared away by ‘human smell’ if you touch it. Why the heck would birds care about humans touching their baby, they barely even care if the baby is their own species.
If it is a tiny pink little thing with no feathers, there is a very low chance that it will survive without a parent. Bring it to a center as fast as possible after determining it is abandoned.
If it is feathered, but still looks rumpled and unfinished, this is probably a fledgling. Baby birds (generally*) learn to fly from the ground up, and though they may appear injured or unable to fly, if they are still being fed by a parent and not in danger from pets, it is best to leave them be. So again, watch and wait to see if it is actually abandoned or injured before bringing it to a center.
If you find an injured bird
Once you have 100% absolutely determined for sure that your bird is definitely injured, I’m afraid the only option is to either do what you can & leave it outside, and let nature take its course, or bring it to a wildlife center. If it is impossible for you to make it to a wildlife clinic and you’re feeling overwhelming guilt about putting your house window at the precise angle for this poor bird to concuss himself on it, just remember that we’re in the middle of the 6th mass extinction of earth’s history, and his species is probably going extinct anyway.
*This is mostly for passerines, they seem to be more susceptible to the sort of accidents that result in humans finding babies.
Thanks for mentioning me & for doing this. You are a wonderful person and thank you from all the Janeites all over the world. You did us a great favor :)

Dear “I don’t need feminism” crowd…
“The Iowa Supreme Court on Friday stood by its ruling that a dentist acted legally when he fired an assistant because he found her too attractive and worried he would try to start an affair. Coming to the same conclusion as it did in December, the all-male court found that bosses can fire employees they see as threats to their marriages, even if the subordinates have not engaged in flirtatious or other inappropriate behavior. The court said such firings do not count as illegal sex discrimination because they are motivated by feelings, not gender." [x]
Are you fucking kidding me.
I just don’t understand this. Why?? How?? What in the world?

IF YOU BELIEVE SIZE MATTERS: PALAU, A SMALL ISLAND IN PACIFIC IS ESTABLISHING A NON-FISHING ZONE THE SIZE OF FRANCE
In 2009, the island of Palau, located in the western Pacific Ocean just above New Guinea, established the first shark sanctuary in the world. Officials from the country say they’ve seen such success with the shark sanctuary as a buzzing tourist destination that they’ve launched plans to ban all commercial fishing in Palau’s large ocean territory by 2018.
The free fishing zone will span 630,000 square kilometres (240,000 square miles) - an area the size of France - and has been described as “unprecedented”.
The reason behind the no-fishing zone, according to the President of Palau Tommy Remengesau, was to allow the ocean to heal and replenish its populations of fish after decades of overfishing by commerical enterprises from around the world.
“Remengesau said Pacific island nations, which are also struggling to deal with climate change, were effectively “the conscience of the world" on environmental matters and had to lead by example because of their special connection with the ocean,” says Neil Sands for AFP.
“The ocean is our way of life,” Remengesau told journalists. “It sustains and nurtures us, provides us with the basics of our Pacific island cultures, our very identities.”
Remengesau added that sharks offered more value to Palau as eco-tourism assets, saying that a 2011 study conducted by the Australian Institute of Marine Science concluded that a single reef shark could raise almost US$2 million for the local economy over 10 years thanks to the tourists that visit it. Figures put the tourism industry as being almost 30 times more lucrative to Palau than the commercial tuna industry. No attacks have ever occurred as the operators are careful to make sure everyone keeps a safe distance from the sharks.
“We feel that a live shark is worth a thousand times more than a dead one," Remengesau said.

This is the perfect visual metaphor for heterosexuality.
I really can’t get over what a good metaphor this is.
they could’ve just made them square but that’d probably be too gay
but then how would the dude be in the lady’s space, expropriating her value? D:
Guys, this is obviously literally meant as a metaphor for the depressingly common dynamics of most heterosexual relationships, and indeed of society in general.
the ‘hers’ cup only appears to have a normal shape when paired with the ‘his’ cup. on its own, the cup would appear to be missing something. why is heterosexuality so terrible?
This has to literally be a metaphor for heterosexual relationships. There is no way someone made such a perfect representation by accident.
I’m not saying I disagree but really guys, this is why tumblr has a bad rep of hating cis’.
this is hating on heteros, get your fake phobias straight (pun so fucking intended)
