“ Funny how you (a friend of Jennifer) friended me today. Funny how you came across a post only available to friends of mine on my personal Facebook profile on the day Jennifer needed someone to back her up. Funny how you accuse me of ganging up on her, when I was responding to her posts that she made on my page, but you don’t see yourself as being guilty of the same thing. Now, how did I establish that marriage equality & adoption of LGBTQ couples is a civil right? From the UN. http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/#atop My issue with the gender role concept has to do with the reality that we are starting to realize that the concept of gender is just a social construct. I addressed the problems with Jennifer’s claims and with the data she used to back up those claims. Opinions when used as she did (in a false claim) can be wrong. http://www.auburn.edu/academic/education/reading_genie/Fact-opinion.html ” – When I found this post via Tumblr Also, it’s funny how almost 24-hours have passed & my comment still isn’t up.

There are a lot of people freaking out about the American Ebola patients being moved to Emory in Atlanta. Many of these people are nowhere near Atlanta. As a person who lives five hours away,1 I’m not worried. And I’m the exact type of person who should be worried–an anxiety patient with a shitty immune system and a history of being freaked out by Ebola. Atlanta is home to a lot of bad pathogens. While there are occasionally slip-ups by the CDC, they are still more informed about safety protocols than the average person. Unless it mutates or they have someone who decides to lick or otherwise take in a patient’s sweat/blood/other bodily fluids, everyone is safe. If it mutates, then people are just as screwed on this continent as they would be anyway. And if someone ingests an infected patient’s bodily fluid, then the only life at risk is their own. Maybe, by patients with Ebola being near the CDC, infectious disease experts will be able to figure out some kind of treatment regime. This could end up saving lives in the end. Isn’t that kind of a good thing? People need to chill. thanks to an inefficient interstate system ↩

Don’t Lick Them & You’ll Be Fine
