Men, despite dominating STEM fields, demonstrating that they do not even have a basic grasp on math.

Okay as depressing as this is, it’s really hilarious.

kipplekipple:

When we talk about being fat-positive and we say, “weight is not an indication of health,” I will reblog it. But I want us to also say, “health is not an indication of value.”

I could be at any weight and I will never be healthy, because I am chronically ill. Someone might be chronically ill and fat, or they might be chronically ill and not fat, and it really doesn’t matter.

When you make it about health, you’re saying health is the pinnacle of human achievement, and you’re shitting on those of us for whom health will always be a pipe dream.

Health as status is such a thing hey.

What Cis People Say To Trans People Vs. What We Hear

By Meredith Talusan and Rory Midhani

TRANSlator 3000: Amazing technology translates cissexist BS!

“Oh you’re trans but you look so good!”
“Trans people are ugly.”

“I’ve never met a trans person before.”
“I assume I can identify any trans person.”

“I would date a trans person.”
“Trans people are usually undateable so I deserve a prize.” 

“You look just like a real woman.”
“Trans women aren’t really women.”

“I’m glad you’re being honest with me about being trans.”
“Trans people who don’t tell me they’re trans are deceivers and liars.”

“I loooooove trans people!”
“I fetishize trans people.”

“It’s so hard to switch pronouns.”
“Trans people are an inconvenience to me.”

“I don’t have a problem with trans people.”
“I have a problem with trans people.”

I will judge trans people the same way I judge all people, by their character.

As Grocery Stores Serve More Prepared Meals, They Have More Food-Safety Issues

1 Share

When you want to grab a quick dinner, where do you go? An increasing number of Americans go to their local supermarket, not to a restaurant, to buy fresh prepared food to take home. This is a profitable business for grocery and big-box stores, but also leads to problems: serving ready-to-eat food means that they risk serving ready-to-eat pathogens, too.

Earlier this year, one of the plants where Whole Foods prepares some of its ready-to-eat items for stores received a warning letter and a 15-day deadline to make significant changes. The Wall Street Journal learned that the plant temporarily closed, then re-opened without any uncooked meat, poultry, or seafood handled anywhere in the facility.

Costco has had to deal with outbreaks of Salmonella linked to its cooked rotisserie chickens and E. coli linked to celery used in its prepared chicken salad.

““Our stores have become mini restaurants and pubs,” the manager of food safety for northeastern grocery chain Wegmans, a chain that pioneered this kind of thing and now has its own food courts full of restaurants and wine soda fountains in its stores. “Prior to that, we basically sliced cold cuts and made a few salads.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that foodborne illness outbreaks linked to grocery store meals doubled from 2014 to 2015, as the prepared food trend became even more popular.

One obvious solution is to better train grocery store employees in food safety, but that means ensuring that everyone has received the training in what can be a high-turnover business.
