A Stranger's Mind

Hello, there. I'm just a teenage fan-girl of science, psychology, politics, languages, and anything funny. I intend on becoming a pediatric oncologist.

Thank you for stopping by my corner of the internet. :)

Momma has seen so many asks about this, and it must end.

DO NOT BIND USING ACE BANDAGES.
EVER.

There are tree things that Momma will be angry at you for- maldirected hate, willful ignorance, and BINDING WITH ACE BANDAGES.

What happens when you bind with ace bandages? If you wear them too long where you’re MEANT to, it will cause bruising and swelling like on the foot above.

If you are LUCKY, you will crack a rib or faint and stop binding improperly.

If you are UNLUCKY, you will have the long-term repercussions. These include, but are not limited to scoliosis (pictured above), muscle damage, bruising, rib warping, pain, and breathing issues.

This is because Ace Bandages are made to reduce swelling. When you breathe, your ribs expand to make room for the air. The Ace Bandages register this as swelling, so with every breath you take, they will bind and restrict tighter.

In a worst-case scenario, your bones will be deformed. You will never be able to bind ever again, even if you use proper methods. Your breathing will be severely impaired.

This is advice for anybody who is thinking about binding. Please, PLEASE, bind properly.

Momma loves you, and doesn’t want to see you get hurt.

(( Good advice for some of you who have been asking about binding. ))

I have so much respect for people that can write songs. Like, how did you know that melody with those lyrics and that guitar riff would be so catchy? Song writers are so smart. Serious respect for song writers.

I tried color coding my closet. I realized it was a bad idea when half my closet turned pitch black and I couldn’t find anything.

Newborn baby stuns doctors by holding her own bottle (in the UK)

A baby girl has amazed doctors with her ability to hold her own feeding bottle. Two-week-old Ammra was able to grasp her bottle alone just three days after she was born at Queen’s Hospital, Romford in Essex, her mother Onyi Chiedozie said.The 20-year-old, who is using a combination of breast and bottle feeding, said doctors and nurses were stunned by the baby’s ability to master her strong grip so soon after she was born.

Black excellence 

this baby is gonna be a brain surgeon when she’s like 10

For people who are like big deal, she held a cup.

My nephew didn’t hold a bottle till he was like one.  Most babies don’t know how to process gravity or the concept of if you grip the bottle it stays close to you where you can suckle it and if you tilt it back the liquid is accessible and it’s a lot to process for a baby okay.

This baby is way ahead in neuromuscular and cognitive development. She’s one of the xmen probably, it’s really amazing, the equivalent of a baby saying it’s first word at 2 months old ok it’s really amazing

Anybody else thinking superhero? Like her brain is gonna be so strong by middle school she’ll be making books float and reading minds

Real life Matilda.

No, I’d say the show does a great job of representing the typical 18-34 male with Larry, with his constant need for validation, attention, and the world to revolve around him.

Boom.

And Mendez, who believes that he is owed for being kind and that women are not only worth less than him, but are equal to tools that have a purpose that can serve him and are worth nothing past that.
And Healy, who only values women if they are serving his wants,needs, and values.
And Bennett, who doesn’t understand a lot of the women’s perspectives but is considered lesser by many unless he is showing power over women.
And that evil witch woman’s husband that is running for senator, who’s wife’s career and goals don’t matter unless they are serving his.
And that one guard who is pursuing to please his girlfriend physically and somewhat emotionally after admitting to his mistakes and is trying to grow from them.
Each of the men depicted in this show are shown as diverse and allowed to be, but don’t say this show doesn’t accurately, and frequently, represent an array of different realistic male roles.

To women with daughters
hoping to raise subservient
domestic slaves:

Hand your daughter
a hammer
before you give her
a kitchen knife.

Or better yet,
let her choose
her own weapon.

Teach her how to
manage a bank account
before you enlist her
to domestic service.

Do
not
leave
the
dishes
for
her.

Equip her
with a strong voice,
so that she may
speak over
those who may feel
they know
her place better
than she does.

So no one
can make her
decisions for her.

Allow her to choose:
her own colours,
her own way,
her own likings.

She may not like
dresses after all,
what’s the harm?

Encourage her
to be independent,
to pursue her dreams.

You were not born
believing that your
body is a factory,
so why would
you impose the idea
on one of your own?

If you tell your daughter
that she is
in any way
less than a man,
the problem is that
she will eventually
believe you.

I don’t usually discuss the story behind a piece of writing, but this one stands out.

My parents had a few families over for dinner recently and I wanted to help in the kitchen to the best of my ability. So I was putting clean dishes away, clearing out the ones from inside the sink, etc.

As I did this, one of the ladies said to me from behind me: “It’s wonderful that you’re helping your mother out, but don’t you dare do this when you’re married, or else your wife will never do any work! ”

It could have been a joke, but it wasn’t. Because she proceeded to cite examples of wives who did not do “what they were supposed to do.” Essentially, she was telling me that it’s perfectly fine to help my mother in the kitchen, but unacceptable to do the same for my wife when I’m married.

The problem with this is that she has two young daughters of her own, and she is raising them with this backwards mentality that men should be excluded from domestic work simply on the basis of biology, which is completely unacceptable.

Boys aren’t princes and girls aren’t slaves. There is nothing more special about a man which puts him above a woman. There is something incredibly wrong with this mentality, the fact that it persists and is being instilled into children from a young age.
