The Real Reason We Still Don't Have A Vaccine For Ebola

atane:

It’s not about saving lives, it’s about making money.

It’s true. I was reading a long scary article about how the effectiveness of antibiotics has decreased so much over time, and it mentioned that too - how vaccine companies and pharmaceutical companies don’t spend the money to develop new drugs unless they can see some economic benefit to themselves.

does anyone else have this other self they’ve created in their mind that is not really exactly you irl but is more like what you want to be and has a life that continues in your head with like weird continuing daydreams but they’re not perfect or anything and wow i forget where i was going with this

I.. I have a mental disorder? Wait..

Key word here: Symptom.

Maladaptive Daydreaming is beginning to be explored as its own mental illness.

However, what is described in the original post is not really maladaptive daydreaming.

I’m so glad I don’t do this, I’d be even more depressed than I already am

(although I do a version of it when I’m writing, but it’s more mapping my own experience onto other personalities to see what they do, so. not the same.)

Really, I never thought that Community was an actual, accurate portrayal of community college.

But then on my first day of classes at community college, I was told to dumb down the world debilitating in my psych class, had to sit on top of my desk in one of my art classes because the chairs in half the classroom had somehow mysteriously disappeared between classes, and I watched a person dressed in a clown costume and a person dressed in an over the top doctor costume walk down the hall, side-by-side, like it was an every day occurrence, only to be pursued several moments later by a lone elderly security guard.

Some of it is so painfully accurate.

Let me talk to you about books.
Specifically, one book. This book.
This book should be a best seller. This book should be required reading for graduating from high school. Before you get that diploma, you read this book.
This book deals with debunking “Neurosexism,” which is a very fancy term for all of that evolutionary psychology bullshit that people spill about those “brain differences” between boys and girls.
This book debunks such myths as:
Boys are better at math than girls
Women make crappy lawyers/business CEOs/etc, as their brains are not cut out for aggression.
Men make crappy counselors/primary school teachers/primary parents/etc, as their brains are not cut out for empathy.
MEN ARE BUILT FOR GOING OUT AND HUNTING WHILE WOMEN ARE BUILT FOR STAYING HOME AND BABYMAKING IT’S NOT SEXISM IT’S JUST BIOLOGY
And many other such myths.
Furthermore, this book covers topics such as: 
Neurosexism and gender perceptions in multiple races (as this is not a singularly white experience, just as the western world isn’t a singularly white experience)
Sex discrimination in the workplace, and how women are (or, more often, are not) allowed to behave
How science is used (badly) to support many of these claims
Experiences of trans people, both through interviews and empirical studies.
AND FINALLY - It is all brilliantly researched, cited, compiled - and it’s easy to read! Cordelia Fine actually manages to be funny while writing this, which I think is important, because it makes all of this information infinitely accessible.
Delusions of Gender has reinforced what Oberlin taught me: The gender binary is stupid and arbitrary, and dangerous. And it is a self-perpetuating bias that needs to be addressed to be overcome.

So adding this to my to-read list.

And it’s currently available on Kindle for $3.34.

THIS BOOK IS EVERYTHING
Cordelia Fine is a damn good psychologist and this book is approachable and fun to a lay reader, but also PACKED with important research results, clearly conveyed. Strongly recommend this puppy to anyone who is interested in neuropsychology, evolutionary psychology (which is a crock of shit, by the way), developmental psychology, gender, or childrearing. Every new parent should read it. Every misguided gender essentialist should read it. Everybody. It’s so good. 

Wait let’s do a book club about this too.

Collect books, even if you don’t plan on reading them right away. Nothing is more important than an unread library.
