This woman became a man for 18 months… and her mind was blown.
Interviewer: Do you think women understand what’s it like to be a man?
Norah Vincent: Not at all. No clue. No idea.
There’s so much here… and you can tell her entire perspective was changed.I loved this when I read about it, and I love it now. I’m seriously considering buying her book. This whole experiment confirms so much of what I already believed and knew, and it’s why I’m not a feminist, or an MRA. Men and women are different, we struggle differently, and we need each other. We were created for one another. Definitely worth the watch.
Reblogging to watch later.
Happy Thanksgiving to all who serve. Thankful for our Military Heroes. @USArmy @USNavy @airforce @USMC @USCG @NationalGuard
Drake and Josh shaped our generation like I’m 99.99% sure that this show is the reason I’m so sarcastic.
Our President is an unapologetic bold faced liar.
He scares me how well he lies
79% of parents report their outlook on life is more positive because of their child with Down syndrome.
99% of adults with Down syndrome report they are happy with their lives, 97% like who they are, and 96% like how they look.
And yet, 9 out of 10 babies who are diagnosed with a prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis are terminated. That’s 90%.
“So once again the culture of death distorts the truth by suggesting that parents are doing the right thing by killing their Down Syndrome child. The culture of death says, “Better dead than have Downs.” But 99% of adults with Down Syndrome report they are happy with their lives. I doubt you would find anything close to that percentage in the “healthy” adult population. And yet it is these very happy adults that are being targeted for destruction in the womb.” ~ Rebecca Taylor, LifeNews
Also, the Downs test is incredibly inaccurate. I personally know 3 people whose parents were told they would have Downs and should be aborted. Thankfully all 3 sets of parents chose life, and my boyfriend, roommate, and classmate are alive and healthy. Also, none of them ended up having Downs.
Down’s syndrome is no reason to kill a child. The chance of a child having Down’s syndrome isn’t one either. There are loving families out there who specifically want to adopt kids with Down’s syndrome and other special needs.
The woman on the left is a mother from Miami who was so desperate to feed her hungry family that she was trying to steal a lot of food.
The woman on the right is Miami-Dade County Police Officer Vicki Thomas. Officer Thomas was about to arrest Jessica Robles but changed her mind at the last minute.
Instead of arresting her, she bought Robles $100 worth of groceries:
“I made the decision to buy her some groceries because arresting her wasn’t going to solve the problem with her children being hungry.”
And there’s no denying they were hungry. Robles’ 12 year old daughter started crying when she told local TV station WSVN about how dire their situation was:
“[It’s] not fun to see my brother in the dirt hungry, asking for food, and we have to tell him, ‘There is nothing here.’”
Officer Thomas says she has no question that what she did was right:
“To see them go through the bags when we brought them in, it was like Christmas. That $100 to me was worth it.”
But Officer Thomas did have one request:
“The only thing I asked of her is, when she gets on her feet, that she help someone else out. And she said she would.”
And guess what? The story gets even better.
After word got out about what happened people donated another $700 for Jessica Robles to spend at the grocery store.
And then best of all a local business owner invited her in for an interview and ended up hiring her on the spot as a customer service rep.
She started crying when he told her:
“There’s no words how grateful I am that you took your time and helped somebody out. Especially somebody like me.”
And to think it all started with one veteran police officer trusting her “instinct” instead of going “by the book”.finally some good news to read
Just when you think there no hope left for humanity, someone like this come along to prove you wrong.
There’s still hope…
This is so beautiful. Stories like this melt my heart.
