Except you can’t show a topless woman on TV - and you can’t defibrillate a woman in a bra. So victims of heart attacks on TV are always male. Did you know that a woman having a heart attack is more likely to have back or jaw pain than chest or left arm pain? I didn’t - because I’ve never seen a woman having a heart attack. I’ve been trained in CPR and Advanced First Aid by the Red Cross over 15 times in my life, the videos and booklets always have a guy and say the same thing about clutching his chest and/or bicep.

And people laugh when I tell them women are still invisible in this world.

re: feministing - for women, heart attacks look different

Things I did not know, but should.

My mom worked for 25 years as an ER nurse and is convinced that a lot of women die simply because folks only know heart attack symptoms that occur in males.

Society thinks our bodies are so scandalous that it’s better to put our lives at risk than to show us how to stay safe

Again: i have to teach this Every Semester. Right next to the Geena Davis stats about women in and making films.

"In a study of injuries in 90 patients injured by rubber bullets, one died, 17 suffered permanent disabilities or deformities and 41 required hospital treatment after being fired upon with rubber bullets."

So when the cops claim this is a humane, legitimate crowd control tactic, they’re straight up lying to your face. Don’t let them bullshit you. (x)

Can we just start calling them what they are? Rubber coated bullets. Normal ass, violent, lethal projectiles.

Don’t forget Charlie Sheen. He’s been arrested for domestic violence at least six times and shot a woman. With a gun. And he’s still got a career.

Also Sean Penn, Sean Bean and Gary Oldman s’il vous plait

Michael Fassbender is another one

Gary Oldman was acquited with his children and nanny all saying the claims were false. His children stated multiple times the woman (his exwife) was emotionally abusive and manipulative to them and would often threaten them. It’s not unheard of for child abusers to pin there abuse on their spouse.
Also to clarify Sean Penn and Charlie Sheen didn’t just abuse women they literally tortured them.

I swear a lot of people would be less confused about their sexual orientation if they knew that romantic orientations were also a thing.

This is weird.

It’s Robert Pattinson in the days before Twilight.

Look at him, still smiling. There’s hope in his eyes. He can see a future before him, and he still believes that it can be good. He still has dreams.

It’s like Dean Winchester before Hell!
