This is a real medical condition known as Gan’s Syndrome, an ocular retinoblastoma occurring in 0.0004% of the total retinoblastoma cases. Ruptured blood vessels create often symmetrical, or at least fractal patterns and though the eye can see, visual acuity is lowered. It can be treated but never cured, though most suffering with the condition live normal lives. Gan’s Syndrome was founded by Dr. Sharon Gan.
wow, so spine chillingly beautiful. Sometimes nature is so beautiful even if it’s hindering a person’s life.
sadly yet again another fake post
A quick google and you can see nothing by this name exists.
no its real my cousin sasuke has this
you dont know shit and ill destroy you
i think the funniest thing about this ask is that the dude is actually transgender
like wow thank you for setting us all back by publicly spewing your ignorant misguided bullshit and giving cis people one more reason to disregard us as equals just because you have your own fucking guidelines about what counts as trans and what doesnt
its not guidelines, you need dysphoria to be transgender.
“Gender identity disorder (GID), also known as gender dysphoria, is a formal diagnosis used by psychologists and physicians to describe people who experience significant dysphoria (discontent) with the sex they were assigned at birth and/or the gender rolesassociated with that sex. Affected individuals are commonly referred to as transsexual or transgender. ”
there you fucking go
get ur dumbass internalized transphobia out of spaces where people have actual ideas that matter (log off) and think about this for more than the 10 seconds it takes to form yr opinion based on a disgusting biologically essentialist pathologizing wikipedia article written by someone whos probably not even trans
"affected individuals" lol
okay could someone explain why what the asker in question said was wrong I’m curious and want to know
Nothing about it was wrong, it was 100% accurate! 100% correct. That’s the issue with the “trans community” is that so many don’t believe you need dysphoria to be transsexual and medically transition, but it is literally the criteria in itself.
before my doctor put me on hormones he asked me ZERO questions about if i did or did not feel dysphoria
yeah that’s something I don’t understand about this piefuckers like what do they think they’re losing by you being a ~fake transgender~ what is happening to them structurally, there is no gatekeeping on testosterone, & there shouldn’t be, & they WANT gatekeeping??? I can never understand that
Some genuinely do. I had one trans woman tell me that if you’re depressed and suicidal you shouldn’t be allowed to transition. Lots of trans people have so much internalized transphobia they literally believe that maximum gatekeeping should be mandatory and police other trans people as much as possible for not fitting into their narrow definitions.
And all the gatekeeping really comes full circle to the obvious conclusion: cis folks don’t want us to exist.
Jesus fucking holy fucking shit christ on a fucking gold-plated fucking pogo stick.
Trans people do not need to experience dysphoria in order to be a TWUE TRANSGENDER, trans people do not need to experience dysphoria in order to medically transition, and trans people do not need to medically transition in order to be TWUE TRANSGENDEREDEREDZERS.
Continuing to define our community on out-dated cis-gatekeeper fucking standards is ignorant as fuck and you should fucking know better than that. Shame on you for figuratively stabbing your fellow trans people in the back with your internalized cissexist gatekeeping bullshit.
In addition, not every fucking country uses the DSM, not every fucking country considers GID to be a “thing” let alone have it be necessary for accessing medical transition either. The most recent version of the DSM does still define it by dysphoria but it’s not even called “gender identity disorder” anymore according to DSM-V (which admittedly not all doctors follow to the letter.)
I know more than a few trans people who have medically transitioned, who do not experience dysphoria. My own comes and goes and is not constant. I can’t believe that people will go out and listen to cissexist cisfuck doctors who sit and theorize about trans peoples’ lived experiences, over listening to actual trans people which yes includes trans folk who are real and genuine and some of them even pursue medical transition.
If you aren’t straight, white, and a guy, you don’t matter to game publishers.
A little under a year ago, I was throwing around the idea of writing about sexism in games. Just sexism. Eventually, this idea evolved into the much broader topic of discrimination and under-representation in games—not a small subject, by any means. Over the course of the months since, I wrote, scrapped, rewrote, edited, cut, re-edited, recut, rewrote, and finally completed an article that is now known as The Straight White Guy Industry, which critiques the widespread racism, sexism, homophobia, and other forms of discrimination, objectification, and ignorance within the video game industry and community. If you enjoy this article, please share it and join the conversation. If you don’t like this article, please share it and join the conversation.
I was with you up until the point where you decided that the best course of action is telling marginalized people to patiently explain things to ignorant straight white dudes instead of yelling at them.
In my experience, giving the responsibility of remedying ignorance to the people most directly and adversely harmed by it does nothing good. It’s not the odd encounter here and there. It’s everyday, all the time. It’s the background noise of the entire industry.
When people take the time to explain this calmly, rationally, and patiently (say, for the first dozen or so times it comes up), the response is usually not, “Oh. I never saw it that way. Thanks for explaining.” What tends to happen is a staunch refusal to listen. It’s the constant invalidation of the lived experiences that have informed the perspectives of those who deal with racism, sexism, and homophobia on a daily basis. It’s the constant attempts to undermine the fact that we know what we’re talking about. It’s the constant renderings of an experience that real people go through into an interesting idea to talk and debate and argue about. This is not one or two people, it’s most of people, most of the time.
Telling women, people of color, and/or LGBTQ people to be more polite when faced with that makes an already heavy burden (being constantly bombarded with messages of one’s own inferiority at every level of society, for instance) even heavier.
Instead, why not focus on getting straight white male gamers to actually listen better?
protect ur trans friends and keep them safe by using the proper pronouns and keeping their birth name a secret (unless you’re talking to someone they aren’t out to, in which case do the opposite). this especially goes for the friends of trans women
Some trans women on this website are fucking annoying with their obsession with “icky trans men and their male privilege” and making sure they express that they have hatred towards men, because we are all bad, or something like that.
Researchers in Boston announced last week that HIV had once again been detected in two patients who had previously been thought to be rid of the virus.Â The results suggest that HIV reservoirs, latent cells that have the genetic code of the virus, are more persistent and deeper in the body that scientists had thought.
This specifically refers to a hand striking the side of a person’s face, tells quite a different story when placed in it’s proper historical context. In Jesus’s time, striking someone of a lower class ( a servant) with the back of the hand was used to assert authority and dominance. If the persecuted person “turned the other cheek,” the discipliner was faced with a dilemma. The left hand was used for unclean purposes, so a back-hand strike on the opposite cheek would not be performed. Another alternative would be a slap with the open hand as a challenge or to punch the person, but this was seen as a statement of equality. Thus, by turning the other cheek the persecuted was in effect putting an end to the behavior or if the slapping continued the person would lawfully be deemed equal and have to be released as a servant/slave.
THAT makes a lot more sense, now, thank you.
we’re doing this rn in theology class but im gonna be That Person and ask for a source because this sounds legit but if im gonna talk about this im gonna need to cite something
ok found a few sources for this actually so Yes this seems like a solid reading of the quote
http://www.ualberta.ca/~cbidwell/DCAS/third.htm (about a third of the way down)
I need someone to preach this. I’ll have to use it in some spoken word at church.
Jesus said slap that hoe back.
Yay, sources! I heard this a while ago but didn’t have any evidence to go on. I’m so glad. That passage isn’t about being nice to your oppressors, turning the other cheek isn’t an act of passivity. It’s about turning the tables and taking back dignity. It’s about shaming those who would oppress. People don’t seem to get that Jesus wasn’t a ‘bear your yoke quietly’ kind of guy. He was an agitator and a radical, and these kind of readings inspire me so much to fight, not just people on the street but people in the church who would have us accept their toxic teachings and ask for more.
Yeah, shit like this? Just proves how much those in power deliberately warp shit to their benefit. They twist any sort of resistance to the status quo to be utterly useless and then sneak it into everything as subtle propaganda. Like how “violence is never the answer” and “an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind” are the twisted versions that deprive folks of justice. No revolution was truly 100% bloodless, tho history can be rewritten to erase that fact, or skew it to serve as fear-mongering bullshit.
Intersectional feminism works to address the male domination and marginalization that exists in labor movements, anti racist movements, queer movements, prison abolition movements, etc.
The men’s rights…
What do you think are the causes for the organizations being male dominated? I’ve got literally no leads on it and would like to know more.
A lot of reasons come to mind.
1) There is an association between masculinity and strength. Look at phrases like “be a real man” or “man up”. In contrast, women are regulated to subservience, nurturing, and support. This connection, combined with the historical domination of men and the disproportionate representation of men at the top of society (and quite a few other causes, I can elaborate) cause people to accept when men behave assertively, take control, or speak confidently. These same norms also cause people to associate these, and other traditionally masculine traits, as signs of competence. Whereas communication styles and values that are traditionally coded as feminine as perceived as weakness.
So, men are more likely to try to take charge and more likely to have these attempts respected.
Next time you’re at a meeting or listening to a mixed gender group speak, listen to how much men and women are speaking in relation to one another. See if you can see differences in how they’re speaking. Women, even those in positions of authority, are expected to, and socialized to, communicate in indirect ways.
2) There are factors that make women feel less comfortable in majority male spaces. It is societally acceptable or at least permissible for men to comment on the appearance of women to each other or even to the women in ways that may range from subtle to disgustingly overt depending on context. Men in majority-male spaces can get away with ogling women with little to no repercussions. The sort of macho, quasi-aggressive competitiveness that arises in such spaces may not be uncomfortable for most men; but for someone who isn’t: a lot of this play comes off as aggression.
3) Women are much, much more likely to be relegated to, or feel they need to take charge of reproductive labor (by which is meant: childcare, cooking, cleaning, emotional support, and other unpaid tasks that while necessary for “productive labor” [meaning that which is paid] tend to be devalued.). So, if women find the time between performing such work to spend on organizing, many times, even then, they find themselves performing such labor. Women who take part in social movements frequently find themselves cleaning up after men’s messes, handling the childcare at conferences, playing the role of therapist for men in the movement and the like. All the while, their voices are not being seen as being as legitimate as those of the men they are organizing with.
I might expand or add points if anyone is curious. I’d also love to hear other people’s thoughts.
I might also try to dig up resources on good ways to try to address these issues if anyone would like.
Interesting, this shows the probably of a child’s eye color based on the eye color of its parents!
For more obscure eye colors….
About 2% of the world has Green eyes.
Amber is a bit more rare, having a yellow-gold tint, with copper/russet undertones. (Sunlight through a glass of whiskey, you know who I’m talking about) (Actually, he has Hazel eyes, but occasionally gets terrific lighting that makes it look amber) Light brown eyes are often mistaken for Amber, but there is a difference - The yellow and orange is far more distinct in Amber eyes.
Violet/Purple eyes are the third rarest. Having Occular Albinism is far more common than full Albinism.
It actually results in super pale blue eyes, but the red blood in their iris will often show through, resulting in a pale purple tone.
It comes with a host of eye-related disorders and sensitivities. (Mostly because there is no pigmentation in the iris, therefore your pupil dilating or shrinking has very little effect on how much light actually enters the eye - Eye damage occurs very easily, and the optic nerve has a harder time developing)
Black eyes are second-most rare, occurring from a Super-melanistic genetic trait similar to Albinism, but on the opposite scale. Many people say that true black eyes do not exist. They argue that black eye color is rather very dark brown color, so dark that it appears black.
Full Albinism resulting in red eyes is the most rare.
Just curious, what about grey eyes? Because one of my friends has grey eyes and I’m not kidding in the slightest.
Gray eyes are the same as blue, genetically speaking.
One theory is that in gray eyes, there are larger deposits of collagen in the stroma, resulting in Mie scattering rather than Rayleigh scattering (which is basically the difference between seeing a blue sky and a gray sky, for an analogy).
The other explanation is that there might be different concentrations of melanin at the front of the stroma.
I have a soft gray blue eye color with golden splotches in the center c:
If you thought the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) couldn’t stoop any lower, you’d be wrong. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the agency responsible for setting off the events that led to Waco and were at the center of theFast and Furious gun-walking scandal are using mentally disabled teenagers to advertise businessess that are actually fronts for ATF sting operations. …
