HAVE YOU EVER FELT SO DESPERATE ABOUT SOMEONE NOT LIKING YOU BACK, THAT YOU JUST GET THIS TIGHT, SQUEEZING FEELING IN YOUR CHEST AND IT JUST HURTS SO MUCH
Shut you up real fast.
vaginas are able to stretch wide enough to give birth to a fucking baby and then return to its original size but of course being penetrated by that grass blade you call a penis is what’s going to make it “loose”
And This Is Why You Shouldn’t Get Sick In America
Many believe that the US healthcare system is the best in the world. Not so according to the World Health Organization’s ranking of the world’s health systems. The US doesn’t even rank in the top 25. It ranks 37th and is the most expensive in the world. I would argue that even if we had the best healthcare system in the world, what good is it, if no one can afford to access it.
Most companies are buying 60/40-policys for their employees these days, but even if you are lucky enough to have good insurance with 80/20-policy coverage, that 20 percent your responsible for can drive you right into bankruptcy as easily as the 60-40 policy given the cost of healthcare.
Insurance cost have been going up dramatically in the last two decades, long before the new Affordable Healthcare Act has taken affect, in some cases as much as 35% per year.
But have you noticed the latest trick the insurance companies have roll out?
Yes, Higher Deductible… most averaging $5,000 per year, per person, but I have seen some as high as $10,000 per year. For those of you that are wondering, this tactic is specifically designed too stop you from using your insurance. It reduces the insurance companies out of pocket liability by shift costs onto consumers, especially those dealing with chronic illness such as diabetes and arthritis. Consequently, because consumers can’t afford the deductible they will avoid necessary care to save money.
Although insurance companies are a problem, the real crook is the healthcare system it self. A corrupt and bloated system desperately in need of reform!
OKAY SO I KNEW THAT TECHNICALLY IN AMERICA THAT YOU PAY FOR HEALTHCARE BUT LIKE THE IDEA IS SO BIZARRE TO ME THAT I’D NEVER CONSIDERED THAT YOU’D GET… A BILL?????? FOR BEING…. ILL?????????? I LITERALLY DON’T
how can anaesthetic cost that much??
how is this legal??
WHAT? And I thought having to pay £7 ($11.55) for stronger prescription allergy meds instead of £4 ($6.60) for the less effective store-brand ones was ridiculous.
You have to pay for the ambulance!?
OK, I’m shocked by the prices, but all of the people from other countries who are just shocked that there ARE prices just make me so so sad.
This is so screwed up.

i hope a straight boy sees this and gets pissed off
how fucking tiresome. It’s not your pits that are gross, it’s your “edgy” attitude about them. And also your face, your gross disgusting face. Please do the internet a favour and don’t post any more selfies or write any more text posts. In act, just smash your router, go for a walk outside, tell your parents you love them, play with a dog, drink a glass of water. Do anything but be on the internet and contribute to the cultural sewage that is tumblr.
You dont get to send me lyrics at four am making it clear I’m on your mind cause theyre relevant to my day even though you havent spoken to me since monday and ignored my texts and im so fucking confused that I just wanna cry
timecurve asked: ""It's about having the confidence to say I don't want to do this" @CarrieHFletcher on pressure in #relationships " what the HECK
The full quote [1:56 in the video]:
Jimmy: What should you do if you feel pressured within a relationship to maybe have sex, or to send explicit pictures, or to do anything you don’t feel comfortable with?
Carrie: It’s about having the confidence and the self-esteem and the self-respect to say ‘I don’t want this’, ‘I don’t wanna do this.’
(Note: this quote is followed by a discussion on consent, which is important, but it does approach it from the angle of ‘oh that can be quite romantic’ rather than ‘hey that’s a legal obligation’.)
Some people are saying that those who have been upset by this are “twisting Carrie’s words” - these were her exact words. Nobody needs to ‘twist’ them to see that she’s implying that victims are somehow at fault when they’re being pressured or coerced if they don’t say ‘no’.
When you say that you need to have the confidence or self-respect to say no, you’re implying that people who DON’T say “no” or “I don’t want to do this” in those situations are doing so because of a LACK of self-respect or confidence. That they don’t say no because of some personal failing, and that if they had self-respect, they would be able to say no and this might have changed the outcome. This directly puts some of the blame on the victims of coercion or abuse. THIS IS HARMFUL. It doesn’t matter if that’s ‘not how she meant it’ as some people are claiming, because that’s exactly how she said it, and that’s how many viewers will understand it. If that’s really not what she meant, she has to accept that it’s what she implied, and that that responsibility lies with her and the 401 Show not with the victims of abuse who’ve been hurt by her words. Their feelings are the most important thing in this situation.
When you mess up and you make victims of abuse feel worse about what happened to them, you apologise. You take responsibility. That’s on you.
