    bottomjared wrote the very well-intentioned:

    Hey! So, Coming Out Day is coming up soon (Oct. 11) and I just want to post a very stern reminder to NOT out anyone without their explicit permission. Do NOT out anyone. Got it? Okay.

    And then pondprincen chimed in with this diamond in the rough:

    this is also a less important point, but still worth noting: DO NOT “come out” as an ally. don’t you dare.

    Are you fucking kidding me?

    Let me put this into perspective for the kids. My big gay wedding just happened to occur on October 11th. No intent. It just happened that way because of Ben’s mother’s schedule and her required 3000 mile journey to Sausalito.

    Would you like to know who brought it to my attention at the reception with the live Klezmer band that it was National Coming Out Day? A 60-year-old Muslim woman with her head covered even as she danced with unbridled vigor to “Gimpel The Fool” and “Dem Rebens Tanz.”

    If “allies” - or, as I like to say, decent human beings - want to use National Coming Out Day as a public show of solidarity, then please do so at your pleasure and mine. And I hope you’ll just ignore these self-destructive, whiney little children.

    Every public ally is gold gold gold.

    allies cannot identify themselves as allies. they must be identified by the community as allies, and “coming out” for them must be from the mouth of an lgbta+ person. you are wrong. bye.

    There you have it. From pondprincen's mouth to God.

    No ally of the LGBTQ+ community may self-identify as an ally of the LGBTQ+ community unless a self-identified member of the LGBTQ+ community gives them a Golden Ticket.

    So shut your goddamned mouths and stop supporting us.

    Bye.

    Why are people being mean to Ana?

    Anons are mean to anyone, the thing is to ignore them. Anons feed on negative reactions. That’s why they send hate, they want to see people get angry and cry. 

    Don’t feed the troll. Just don’t. No matter what.

This is actually sadly relevant. I had a lecture this summer about sign languages and Deaf culture and when I was finished, one hearing girl from the audience stayed behind to ask me some more question.
She asked me: “And your parents use sign language, right?” Like it was the most obvious thing in the world and why is she even asking this, of course my parents must know sign language.
"No… They don’t, actually."
"And how do you communicate, then?"
"Talking?"
"But… isn’t that complicated for you?"
"It is, sometimes."
"They probably didn’t have time for it…" she said. And I haven’t the heart to tell her that my father was offered sign language courses several times, that I offered to teach them some signs and that they always refused.
But I did told her: “It is not that rare. Most of deaf people I know have hearing parents who don’t sign.”
It’s the sad truth. People are willing to pay for surgeries to “repair” their children, but they are not willing to learn something to communicate with them.

i’d like to add onto this with my own personal experience, too. i was born hearing, but as soon as i was diagnosed as HoH, my parents didn’t do anything to learn ASL. they were quick to put me in classes, but they wouldn’t when i suggested to them that they take the classes with me so that we could learn.
i’ve tried to teach my mom how to sign numerous times, but she always says that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” to which i tell her that she can learn, she just doesn’t want to. which is true. neither of my parents want to learn how to sign, but they want me to be able to hear perfectly so they don’t have to repeat themselves.
little do they know that their frustration with me not being able to hear them would be solved if they would just learn how to sign. maybe signing something to me once instead of repeating themselves four times and then getting mad would be more beneficial.

I’m absolutely shocked at this, it’s never crossed my mind that many parents wouldn’t even try to meet their hard of hearing kids halfway.

    A Baltimore City cop who attempted to hold his fellow officers accountable for on the job misconduct has been intimidated to the point of leaving the police force entirely.

    There is no such thing as a so-called good cop in their system. This is why.

    First Blood Test to Diagnose Depression in Adults

    The first blood test to diagnose major depression in adults has been developed by Northwestern Medicine scientists, a breakthrough approach that provides the first objective, scientific diagnosis for depression. The test identifies depression by measuring the levels of nine RNA blood markers. RNA molecules are the messengers that interpret the DNA genetic code and carry out its instructions.

    The blood test also predicts who will benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy based on the behavior of some of the markers. This will provide the opportunity for more effective, individualized therapy for people with depression.

Bruise
.
I awoke this morning to find a large bruise
on my left arm, but unable to explain how
it got there I dismissed it as one of those
things, and didn’t think about it again—
until just now, when I noticed it in the mirror.
The shape of a hand has become clearly
defined, and the way in which the black
and purple fingers wrap around my arm
it’s as though someone tried to shake me
awake in the night—but, there is no one
else here. And, after laying my hand on
the bruise, it is clear the bruise is not
self-inflicted as it is an imprint made by
a left hand. Now, in a religious sense
I am not someone who believes in angels
and demons; and, as much as I like the
idea of vampires and werewolves, I don’t
think I was visited by one last night.
However, it does appear that while I slept
someone inside me tried to get out.
