  3. "Peeta’s argument is that since I chose you, I now owe him. Anything he wants. And what he wants is the chance to go in and protect you."

    Quote

    Haymitch, Catching Fire

    I don’t really understand how people can say that Peeta manipulated Katniss for his own gain. If he was truly using her, he could have killed her in the first Games or not volunteered to protect her in the second one. He could have just let her go in with Haymitch and let them figure it out themselves.

    What I think people fail to understand when reading SC’s books, is that she was using these books as a vehicle to portray war, the effects it has on humanity and the ability to overcome it. If we look at it from that perspective, we see these characters as more than just two guys and a girl. 

    Katniss being the protagonist and symbol for change. 

    The men in her life representing the two methods to change:

    Peeta being the innate good in humanity and hope that spurs us on to live.

    Gale being the self-destruction in humanity and our ability to hate one another.

    We get to see the different effects of each method and its consequences throughout the book. When we choose Everlark, we choose hope, the promise that life can go on, that things can be good again.

    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.”

    Reddit thread 

    i just want you to stop and think about how some of these stories reflect the state of our nation’s sexuality education.

    ^^^^^ THIS

    This is upsetting. Its similar to questions ive had from teens. Sigh.

    I’ve read almost all of the Reddit Thread. We need to compile the reproductive and sex ed related ones and submit them as evidence as to why abstinence only sex ed DOES NOT WORK!

    This is why we need comprehensive sex ed!

  10. Jenny Lewis Combines Gender-Bending and Female Stereotypes in 'One of the Guys'

    femonster:

    I basically cannot stop listening to this song. The above quite sums up my feelings quite nicely. It also doesn’t hurt that the video is full of some fantastic women showing that women are in fact funny and complex people.
