"She gets sexed up"

"It’s inappropriate."

"A terrible example for young girls."

"Does being yourself mean wear swanky clothing and wear a lot of makeup?"

Yes, actually it can.

I hate when people say this about Elsa. I HATE IT.

First I would like to mention that when people say “be yourself” some people don’t really mean. What they mean is don’t try to hard, don’t put too much makeup, don’t wear clothes that are too tight or comfy, stay comfortable. And for some people, that is not themselves.

Some people like to put on a lot of makeup.

Some people like wearing revealing clothing.

Some people like to look rebellious.

You can’t hold that against them.

AND ITS THE SAME THING FOR ELSA.

All her life, she was told to be this quiet, poised, conservative girl. A girl who wears long dresses, capes. A girl who doesn’t talk back, doesn’t act up. She was trapped. She was trapped in a little box full of responsibilities.

And now she’s LETTING GO.

Did you even listen to the freaking song?

She’s becoming what she wants to be. She’s letting go of the past and heading straight into the future. And no one affects what she looks like. There is no boy she wants to impress. No townspeople. No parents. 

She’s doing all of this for herself.

And I don’t know about you, but I think that this is a great example to set for little girls, afraid to be themselves.

friendly reminder that Elsa built her ice castle with the sole intention of spending the rest of her life there cut off from contact with anyone else. she literally planned on shutting herself in and not interacting with other people. meaning every change she made was solely for herself. and honestly, after spending her whole life scared to touch people and making sure her skin was covered (most specifically her hands), her dress change sequence in Let It Go felt like she was finally breaking out of that “be the good girl you always have to be” mold she’d been placed in—emphasis on ‘girl.’ Elsa’s spent her whole life trying so hard to stay contained, she never had a chance to really grow up normally and come into her own as a woman. i see this scene as her taking charge of her womanhood, allowing herself to exist freely as she wants to and no longer confined by the expectations placed on her.

YES.

Filed under q yes all of this and it's something that can easily be overcome by parents if they just redirect their child's attention the the *lyrics* of the song the *content* and not the *exterior wrapper* Elsa is changing her outside to match her inside not to impress anyone else and that is a message that all children need to hear and internalize Frozen Disney body positive dssg

Doctor saves child’s life by practicing heart surgery on 3D-printed model

Heart surgery is an extremely difficult procedure. Even more so when the tiny anatomy of a small child is involved. When 14-month old Roland Lian Cung Bawi’s heart was failing him, his surgeon Erle Austin knew that he had to prepare meticulously for an intricate operation. Initially he consulted other surgeons, but this yielded conflicting advice. So Austin turned to 3D printing for help.

Using the facilities at the University of Louisville’s engineering school, Austin and his medical team produced a three dimensional model of little Ronald’s heart. Pediatric operations are difficult because the interior structures of a child’s organs are small and hard to see clearly. This model allowed the surgical team to come up with a precise plan to limit the amount of exploratory incisions, reduce operating time and prevent the need for follow-up operations.

Fuck. This is important.

3D printers are turning out to be the biggest medical breakthrough I’ve heard of in a long fucking time

Anonymous asked: do any other EDS people out there have low blood sugar/fainting spells? i've been told it could be related in some way or another and i was wondering if anyone else has experienced that.

ehlersdanloszebra:

YES! You might have POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) Syndrome, which is very commonly associated with EDS. A major symptom of POTS is fainting, along with extreme lightheadedness and fatigue. Another key feature that can help you determine if you do have POTS is that your heartbeat will quicken upon standing. 

Here is both the Wikipedia page and a dysautonomia info site to give you more information. 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postural_orthostatic_tachycardia_syndrome

http://www.dysautonomiainternational.org/page.php?ID=30

I’m so glad you sent an ask. Please send any more questions my way and I’m sure another zebra will be able to reach out and provide you with support and info!

If it’s specifically low blood sugar and not POTS-related fainting, it might also be thyroid disease/Hashimoto’s, which apparently has a high co-morbidity rate with EDS, and is known to cause hypoglycemia in some people.

Doctor, this is why I love you. Right here.

Vincent van Gogh was a man who is somewhat famous for his mental instability. He later ended his own life. For the Doctor to go and show him that his art mattered, and that his existence mattered…is amazing. And I wish someone could have shown this amazing artist how much he contributed to the world.

I wish the Doctor could show everyone how they mattered, because everybody does matter. In our own small way, we change the world simply by existing.

I will always, always, ALWAYS reblog this when it’s on my dash.

i really hate seeing children at gay rallies. in most cases, they don’t understand what they’re doing and what they’re promoting. i think most children are pressured into going to gay rallies by their parents and, therefore, pressured into believing in gay marriage. 

i really hate seeing children in churches. in most cases, they don’t understand what they’re doing and what they’re promoting. i think most children are pressured into going to churches by their parents and, therefore, pressured into believing in a magic man in the sky who will send them to hell if they touch themselves or eat shrimp.

omg

Filed under q yup I was raised with the latter and trying to let go of a magical world-view you've been raised with since birth is way more difficult than dealing with your parents raising you with the idea that love can wear many faces I have to imagine anyway politics religion

Mary Bowser, former slave of the Van Lew family, infiltrated the Confederacy by working as a servant in the household of Jefferson Davis. Bowser was assumed to be illiterate, and as a black woman was below suspicion. Practically invisible, she was able to listen to conversations between Confederate officials and read sensitive documents, gathering information that she handed over to the Union.

This needs to be a movie. Like, now.

I’d watch this movie.

How is this not a movie?

Filed under q I mean we should probably have fire extinguishers in every class room anyway for ya know *fires* but this could also be an interesting idea (and to anyone who thinks that arming teachers with guns would be a good idea please go look up the statistics on people who have SUCCESSFULLY stopped a shooting-in-progress the ONLY people to EVER EVER EVER EVER successfully stop a shooting-in-progress by pulling another weapon have been on-duty/off-duty/on-leave/retired police and military people ie people with ADVANCED WEAPONS TRAINING NO ONE ELSE has EVER in ANY mass shooting in the US managed to take a shooter down by pulling another gun ***NO***ONE***E*V*E*R*** do you get that? only people with police or military training so unless we want to start hiring veterans to be teachers (which wouldn't be such a bad idea anyway -- though I hope we always need more teachers than we have soldiers) arming teachers with guns of their own simply will not help anything and STATISTICALLY will CAUSE more deaths than it has any hope of preventing) politics gun violence school shootings
