     Women from Iran’s female police force, established in 2003. These ladies undergo a three year training program requiring intensive military courses including judo, fencing, firearm training, and laying mines. They serve alongside their male counterparts, work regular beats, and they do it all in hijab. Respect.

You know the Big Bang Theory episode where Sheldon adopts all those cats

and names them after scientists who were part of the Manhattan Project

WHERE IS THE “HOWARD STARK” CAT SHELDON

WHERE

Serious question, though: where were the Leona Woods and Chien-Shiung Wu cats?  Or the later-Nobel Laureate Maria Goeppert-Mayer?

Loads of women scientists were involved in the Manhattan Project.  Read more about them here!

It is funny, how erasure of women from history can be a double-edged sword.  On the one hand, it would be nice to think that women were not tangled up in such a destructive project.  But they were there, and we owe it to them and future generations to remember them.  

I think we all know who was on Howard Stark’s security detail, though:

After consulting with Doctors, Danielle and her husband decided that it would be more humane to terminate the pregnancy than allow the fetus to be born, only to die shortly thereafter. Attorneys, however, informed her that this wasn’t possible:

After consulting attorneys, doctors told Deaver and her husband that the Nebraska law prohibited an abortion in their case. She had to wait, give birth, and watch the infant die.

The result?

Nebraska’s new abortion law forced Danielle Deaver to live through ten excruciating days, waiting to give birth to a baby that she and her doctors knew would die minutes later, fighting for breath that would not come. And that’s what happened. The one-pound, ten-ounce girl, Elizabeth, was born December 8th. Deaver and husband Robb watched, held and comforted the baby as it gasped for air, hoping she was not suffering. She died 15 minutes later.

To give you some grounding info, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has stated that there is zero evidence that a fetus can feel pain at 20 weeks of gestation, and notes that there is no legitimate evidence demonstrating that a fetus can feel pain in the weeks thereafter.

But if we assume arguendo that a fetus can feel pain, then that means that the fetus experienced more pain during the 10 days it was being crushed to death by Danielle Deaver’s uterus (as a result of not having an amniotic sac to cushion its body), than it ever would have if the pregnancy had been terminated shortly after Danielle’s water broke. The law caused more harm than it alleviated underneath its own premise.

I know that this doesn’t go with my blog, but I don’t care. This is beautiful and it makes my love for Josh Hutcherson even stronger. I would love to have my child to tell me that they are ‘gay’ or ‘lesbian’, I would be proud.

This speech legit made me cry. It really shows that he doesn’t care, he just loves everyone no matter what. We should all do that cause were all just another human.

Because it is ok. 

I look up to him so much more now than ever. Truly love him and all he stands for
