In working on my book, I went to Rwanda in 2004 to interview women who had borne children of rape conceived during the genocide. …At the end of my final interview, I asked the woman I was interviewing whether she had any questions. She paused shyly for a moment. “Well,” she said, a little hesitantly. “You work in this field of psychology.” I nodded. She took a deep breath. “Can you tell me how to love my daughter more?” she asked. “I want to love her so much, and I try my best, but when I look at her I see what happened to me and it interferes.” A tear rolled down her cheek, but her tone turned almost fierce, challenging. “Can you tell me how to love my daughter more?” she repeated.
Perhaps Todd Akin has an answer for her.
What the fuck?
“ROMNEY: I don’t really care what you tell your adopted daughter. Why don’t you just tell her the same thing you’ve been telling her the last eight years.”
I don’t even have fucking words.
I was expecting this to link to an Onion article AND IT FUCKING DIDN’T.
Things I did not know, but should.
This is a post that might save a life.
My mom worked for 25 years as an ER nurse and is convinced that a lot of women die simply because folks only know heart attack symptoms that occur in males.
shit this is good to know: http://www.webmd.com/heart-disease/features/her-guide-to-a-heart-attack
A woman I worked for had a heart attack at work, I was right there— and she thought she was coming down with the flu, since she was lightheaded with back pain and nausea. She had no idea until she went to a doc-in-the-box. They ran an EKG and immediately sent her off to the ER, and thankfully she was okay. So there you go, real life example: we need to talk more about heart attack symptoms in women.
Wow, I worked in a hospital and was recertified twice (one at BLS), and I almost got a job at the place that MAKES the CPR dummies.
And when I think about it, I have NEVER come across a female dummy that wasn’t a child.
