We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming for some self defense tips.
(sorry for the art notes otl)
If you are ever in the situation and are desperate enough to use keys as a weapon, aim for these areas.
Assuming the attacker has the areas vulnerable (not wearing thick and fully covering clothing), aiming above the collarbone, and achieving a puncture, will penetrate the lung and collapse it. Aiming for the kidneys will cause your attacker to bleed a whole bunch and may prove fatal. Both of these methods will cause them to lose consciousness eventually
Alternatively, aiming for the neck and eyes is a good option but arteries/veins can be tough to lacerate with just keys and the eyes (being a small target) can be difficult to land a hit on.
I actually got these tips from my anatomy and physiology instructor haha. Hope this helps! But i also hope nobody needs to do this either.
One would assume that scientists, who are trained to think objectively, are completely immune to gender discrimination. However, a recent Yale study by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues suggests otherwise.
The researchers created a fictional student and sent out the student’s application to science professors at top, research-intensive universities in the United States. The professors were asked to evaluate how competent this student was, how likely they would be to hire the student, how much they would pay this student, and how willing they would be to mentor the student. All of the applications sent out were identical, except for the fact that half were for a male applicant, John, and half were for a female applicant, Jennifer. Results showed that, with statistical significance, both male and female faculty at these institutions were biased towards male students over female students.
Data from the study shows that on average, science faculty was willing to pay the male applicant about $4,000 more per year. source
"The gender gap doesn’t exist"
"We don’t need feminism"
"Maybe he just worked harder"
"*any MRA bullshit*"
I had to read this study for class. It is thorough as fuck.
Whenever i read all these tumblr stories about abused teenagers and lgbtq+ teenagers who are too afraid to come out to their phobic parents i just want to adopt you all and buy you stuff to make you comfortable and happy ok
My anaconda has, upon review of the information presented with it’s partners, decided that it, in fact, does not. My anaconda apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks you for your time.
