Hey

Psstt

The guy who invented the theory that vaccines cause autism had his medical license revoked for it

thats ridiculous

they took it away because he came up with a seemingly plausible theory?

They took it away because other scientists have been unable to reproduce his results, his results were made up, he didn’t even get approved by an ethics committee, and now he’s risking the health and lives of a whole bunch of people

Let’s not forget he actually admitted all this himself by retracting his data.

Oh and the fact that basing a study on 12 participants is a fucking joke if you know a goddamned thing about statistics and designing scientific studies.

Also a fun note: these studies mostly became popular because of Jenny McCarthy, who claimed that her son’s autism had been caused by vaccines.

As it turns out, her son never even had autism. She claims that she “cured” his autism with things like a gluten-free diet and therapy, but it’s far more likely that he was misdiagnosed… and that she ran with it and started ruining people’s lives with it. 

tl;dr - The anti-vaxx movement is built on lies and misinformation on top of lies and misinformation, and while this might be a laughable thing in other circumstances, this particular movement KILLS CHILDREN.

All of the above.

My life is too blazingly glorious and my schedule far too hectic to bother with every First World(tm) bio spawn hijacking my content to propagate the Reactive “Serial Killer Syndrome” Attachment Disorder ableist horseshit.

In RL I’m back to swatting away white Western journalists like the poverty porn parasites they are, laters…

(Class bastards new and old — do help yourselves to scones in my absence, and stay eternally ungrateful, I’m sorry I’ll be late with replies.

Everyone else: bugger off, I’m not here to help you buy a brown child. ^-^)

Learnt an interesting thing today on this arabic course,
The original Arabic number system looked like this, the one we now use.
It was designed so each character had the corresponding number of angles to the number, so the number 1 has 1 angle, 2 has 2 angles, 3 has 3, 0 has none etc…
It is so obvious now, I’ve always assumed its one of those things that just is, with no logical explanation, but here it is, perfectly simple and satisfying

My jaw is legit on the floor right about now :D

This is WRONG. COMPLETELY WRONG. I’ve seen this post on my dash at least ten times with no correction so here it is:

This is the evolution of the modern numeral system. PLEASE STOP SPREADING MISINFORMATION. The history of Mathematics is awesome and amazing and Arabs made tons and tons of progress and invented many of the concepts we use today, but a numeral system based on angles IS NOT ONE OF THEM.

"We think of men as antiheroes, as capable of occupying an intense and fascinating moral grey area; of being able to fall, and rise, and fall again, but still be worthy of love on some fundamental level, because if it was the world and its failings that broke them, then we surely must owe them some sympathy. But women aren’t allowed to be broken by the world; or if we are, it’s the breaking that makes us villains. Wronged women turn into avenging furies, inhuman and monstrous: once we cross to the dark side, we become adversaries to be defeated, not lost souls in need of mending. Which is what happens, when you let benevolent sexism invest you in the idea that women are humanity’s moral guardians and men its native renegades: because if female goodness is only ever an inherent quality – something we’re born both with and to be – then once lost, it must necessarily be lost forever, a severed limb we can’t regrow. Whereas male goodness, by virtue of being an acquired quality – something bestowed through the kindness of women, earned through right action or learned through struggle – can just as necessarily be gained and lost multiple times without being tarnished, like a jewel we might pawn in hardship, and later reclaim."

Look at your stories - don’t just count who gets to be the hero and the villain (what kind of hero? what kind of villain?); count who gets the redemption arcs. (via notsosilentsister)

#the backlash against the female antiheroes is the profoundest kind of disingenuous bullshit #’why do we want our women to be cruel to be selfish to be ungentle? why do we want to VALORIZE that?’ #we don’t #we want truth we want humanity in all its facets #women allowed the moral spectrum we don’t even evaluate when looking at male characters because we so entirely take it for granted #so many women and such different women that we stop ranking them by their virtues #and how comfortable/uncomfortable they make us #different women IN THE SAME STORIES even #imagine.
