"PALESTINIAN GIRL, YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD"
"When someone enrols in the medicine school that one of the longest schooling required profession, by the time they finish school they will be around 30-or at least on their late 20s. But not for this girl; Eqbal Asa’d is a Palestinian Muslim woman that started the Medicine school when she was just 14 years old, ‘myhijab.info’ reports. Asa’d got her Bachelor degree in Medicine with Honors and was set by the Guinness World Records as the youngest doctor in the World, according to the report. She has been signed to go to Ohio, U.S to continue her education even further and become a Pediatrician." - Source
YOU GUYS SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. SHE IS A FEMALE, A MUSLIM AND A MINORITY. AND SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD.
WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING MORE ABOUT HER?
People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers” your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am.
You can’t demand a service while simultaneously degrading those who provide it for you.
Ten rape prevention tips:
1. Don’t put drugs in women’s drinks.
2. When you see a woman walking by herself, leave her alone.
3. If you pull over to help a woman whose car has broken down, remember not to rape her.
4. If you are in an elevator and a woman gets in, don’t rape her.
5. When you encounter a woman who is asleep, the safest course of action is to not rape her.
6. Never creep into a woman’s home through an unlocked door or window, or spring out at her from between parked cars, or rape her.
7. Remember, people go to the laundry room to do their laundry. Do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.
8. Use the Buddy System! If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from raping women, ask a trusted friend to accompany you at all times.
9. Carry a rape whistle. If you find that you are about to rape someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.
10. Don’t forget: Honesty is the best policy. When asking a woman out on a date, don’t pretend that you are interested in her as a person; tell her straight up that you expect to be raping her later. If you don’t communicate your intentions, the woman may take it as a sign that you do not plan to rape her.
I think this is an example of why it’s annoying when people demand answers to questions about racism - especially broad questions that can’t be easily answered without a lot of background. If you genuinely want to challenge your beliefs and learn, you’ll probably be like this person and do research on your own and realize that there is a lot more to social phenomena than you think
If you are not as concerned about the people handing you your food in the restaurant as you are about the pigs on the farm where it was grown, your approach is classist. … If you start telling someone all about your new trendy diet or asking them about theirs without knowing if they have an eating disorder that may be triggered by your prattle, your approach is ableist. If you tsk-tsk at people who are overweight for what they are eating and claim you’re concerned about their health, yet you’re not actively campaigning to make healthy food more accessible and affordable, your approach is sickening and I don’t want you in my activism.
While I do think this is REALLY a topic that needs to be discussed more — that is, white liberals and their hypocritical views on the “ethics” of food and eating well, that is, caring much more about the cow on their plate more than the child farm worker or the waiter involved in that process, or ONLY caring about the labeling of GMOs at the high-priced stores they themselves shop at, or shaming fat and/or poor people for not having the same “ethics” i.e. the same access to those foods as they have but doing NOTHING to change that, all of this really pisses me off, especially when I see that ableist, classist imperialist shit on Facebook from people I know— and I appreciate the sentiment but it brings up some other things for me, like that the rhetoric surrounding fat people in this article is bothersome. First off, medical terms like overweight and obese are are loaded with a lot of incorrect assumptions and shaming about health being directly correlated with weight, which is a crock of shit. Anyone who’s willing to get over their own insecurity at a fat person loving themselves or being considered and treated like a human would recognize that a fat person can be really healthy in the same way that a thin person can be really unhealthy. But secondly, if your approach is tsk-tsking at ALL at fat people, even IF you are campaigning to make healthy food more accessible, chances are you’re a pretentious [middle-class-had-access-to-organic-kale and- grass-fed-beef-your-whole-mothafuckin-life] person who needs to be reminded that it’s none of your business what people are eating in the first place. Help food to be more accessible, help to erradicate food-deserts, help to dismantle White Supremacy, help communites become more self-sustainable, help local business and local food support people who don’t usually have access to local foods and business, but don’t think that gives you any right of passage for policing people’s food choices because you’re a raw vegan who posts a few updates about poor communities and access to food and health. People are fat and it’s none of your fucking business. While it’s good that there’s at least some acknowledgement of white liberal -isms that are completely hypocritical within discussions about food, it’s still really important to further de-construct those ideas and terms that make you feel like anything you have to say [to fat people] about fat people means a damn thing.
