A lot of stdh but a gyno saying a "pristine, perfect vagina" seems up there with top things that didn't happen.

poo poo that did happen:

I was having a general abdominal ultrasound a few weeks ago. The nice operator lady piped up "Oh, you have a lovely spleen!"

It's not quite as good as a pristine vagina but I'll take it.

To me, 'pristine vagina' means one that has never seen use of any type. I guess that's a fancy way for saying she's a virgin.

Uh there's like no circumstance where that makes sense.

Generally with "do I use 'person-first' terminology or not????" dilemmas the best thing to do is to use whatever the person in question feels most comfortable with. It tends to vary with different illnesses, disorders, personality types or conditions too, so you're more likely to see "deaf person" used than "person with hearing impairment". "Person with autism" or "autistic person" is largely down to personal preference and opinion. (Needless to say, "X is an autistic" or "X is an autist" is poor form.)

40 minutes, 30 if he's in good shape and runs for sport. I was melting down and my BF suddenly hung upside on me and I was flapping around for only 40 minutes before he showed up. Because calling a cab and staying on a cell phone while you are on the way over isn't "romantic" enough I guess.

1. Since it's tumblr I'm willing to bet that the "panic disorder" is that they were triggered by seeing a pineapple on their dashboard or something.
2. Who the gently caress would hang up if someone is having a panic attack RIGHT AWAY AND THEN OMG RUN TO MEET THEM LLOL SUCH GOOD BOYFRIENd. In that situation I'd try to talk them through it and try to get over there. Barring that I'd try to have them talk to anyone around there or find something, anything, to settle their nerves. Not suddenly hang up and leave them to stew in their episode while probably making them think I just cut them off because I'm sick of their crazy poo poo.

Bullshit. The 4-minute mile is still a thing and that makes 40 minutes at the minimum if they have superhuman-level endurance and stamina.

Who was that infamous fat-activist that claimed that they could run a mile in a ridiculously short time (a minute, mayber?) ?

"Person with autism" chat -

The reason this kind of distinction exists is that it's based on trying to influence the mental models of that person, and others who interact with them.

The quote above about identity is relevant. If you, or others, describe yourself as a homeless person, it can suggest that it's an intrinsic part of your existence, and that you don't have agency. If it's framed as "someone experiencing homelessness" or "someone with depression" then there's a little message in there that suggests they don't have to experience those things. It suggests there may be methods and opportunities to improve a bad situation.

I'm not trying to say "easy solutions are right there in front of you, hobo! Just love yourself!!!" but the language in use has a lot of power over subconscious attitudes about self-identity, as well as how society studies/develops/applies ways to help you versus blame you. To say nothing of individual treatment from one person to another.

Thin privilege is being able to see a doctor about your knee fractures (genetic trait passed down from my mother) without being told that they are caused by your weight

I run a 4 minute mile and jog nearly 40 miles a month. I think my knees are in fine shape apart from this, and a doctor saying that I’m “dangerously overweight by 150lbs” (even if being overweight WAS dangerous) is obviously just trying to fat shame me and make me feel bad.

thin privilege is being taken seriously by a doctor.

It was some guy (thought it was a dude) who was all "yeah I p much never run and but I just had all this pent up energy so I went for a run an got [world-record time] which I guess is a good start" and doubled down when called out with "hey I had a LOT of pent up energy from sitting around how could you doubt me??"

I got an ultrasound for abdominal/pelvic pain when I was younger and the tech said I had very textbook anatomy and called in students to take a look because it'd be a good learning moment. Sometimes doctors do weird things.

Speaking of, why would you take a kid to a psychiatrist for bullying? Psychiatrists manage diagnosis and medication. They don't manage therapy. That's psychologists.

Are you talking about Reagan Chastain? aka Dances with Fat?

She's the one that's won "national dance titles" and is in "training" to do a full Triathalon despite being well past morbidly obese. I honestly can't tell if she's deluded or just cynically milking her supporters of PayPal donations and speaking fees at HAES gatherings.

Incidentally, I beleive most of her pre-Tri competitions were not even DNF, her listings reflect she never started the races (aka no show)

I mean, good on you if you're trying to be healthy (although I wouldn't recommend activity so demanding cardio-wise until your BMI is in line with it), but she's part of that vile HAES movement, and regularly dismisses the advice of her doctors since their advice always starts with "lose weight".
