Ah! Burn for the gift of sight.

ASK.   BEG THE SUN FOR LIGHT.   

My desert from your native land how many a league divides! / Yet by your power the waters of my heart feel these rough tides. / To what far gathering are you bound, from what far gathering / come? / Your face is blanched, as if from journeyings long and wearisome. / You in this universe all light, and I all darkness, share / One destiny together in our valley of despair; / I burn in a flame of longing, ah! burn for the gift of sight, / And you, all seared with fires of longing, beg the sun for light; / And if your footsteps cannot stray from one fixed circle's bound, / I too move in one circle as a compass-hand moves round.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------(THE MOON, BY IQBAL).

How does someone elses culture exist simply for the liberation and ‘empowerment’ of privileged white women?

Belly dance does not exist for you to find yourself, ignite your passion, rediscover your womanhood, or embrace your sexuality.

when we talk about women in refrigerators it’s not always something super literal

i don’t imagine in writers room across the globe they’re all sitting there like “well we’re out of ideas let’s fridge another one” (but maybe they do i have no idea)

but…

Leading Men Age, Leading Women Don’t | Vulture

There are more charts if you click through.

I’m so glad this info graphic is going around, because so many people don’t realize how ageism and misogyny play hand in hand and how the sexualization of young girls play into this.

Having Ehlers Danlos Syndrome sometimes feels about the equivalent of being composed of jello and wet spaghetti. Nothing stays where its supposed to. Literally every single cell in the body is floppy, so fingers are definitely an issue for many of us. I can almost guarantee that for the majority of us, writing is not only slow and painful but nearly impossible at times. FIne motor skills? What even are those? An EDSer surely doesn’t have any of those. Even typing which is far easier than writing, is painful and daunting at times. But last year I joined the population of shiny zebras by getting fitted for a set of Silver Rings Splints and they are beyond magical.

For those of you who have not heard of The Silver Ring Splint Company, they are a company that custom makes finger splints that look like elegant pieces of jewelry. Don’t believe me? Well I can’t even tell you how many compliments I’ve received for them. Nobody even suspects that they might possibly be medical. But more importantly, they work amazing! I still have hand pain and finger dislocations when performing fine motor skills and writing is definitely not something I look forward to but I have saved myself thousands of painful dislocations, I can open doors easier, type faster, write longer and hold objects in my hands without looking like an alien from a sic-fi movie. With the rings on my fingers actually look like fingers rather than tentacles!

The company is also family owned and the people are so sweet and helpful!

If you are having trouble with hand pain, clumsiness and dislocations please check out this amazing company!

I’m not sure if I have any followers with EDS, but if so- this looks like a really good resource.

This is so cool…I’m sick of subluxing fingers

Rebloging to help and spread the word!! This is really awesome =).
