Thousands of Haiti babies ‘could die from milk... →
thecurvature: guerrillamamamedicine: Thousands of Haitian infants are at risk of illness and death because wellwishers are supplying the wrong food, world health chiefs warned today. The main threat to infants aged up to six months is powdered baby milk mixed in unclean water, which can cause diarrhoea, dehydration and death. Bottles and teats which cannot be sterilised are also a risk, and a...

Over 30's all they do is bitch!
it’s funny cos it’s true vikkeh: When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with walking Twenty-five miles to school every morning…. Uphill… barefoot… BOTH ways Yadda, yadda, yadda And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of...
Formula = normula?
Love this. Fellow Mafia member right here ;) Considering that they are talking about “the healthiest possible nutritional start” it’s weird that the article doesn’t even mention breastmilk, widely regarded as the most perfect food. johnthelutheran: Yes, I’ve officially joined the Breastfeeding Mafia®. Here’s my email to BBC’s Panorama in response to their programme...

Tell my husband this. I spent hours today going through closets and sorting old clothes to go to charity shop. He got home and said “So have you done anything today, or have you been at home the whole time?” (via justlikewolves)

Kramer was misrepresented in media - Carlsen study... →
(Scroll down to read the English.) This really doesn’t surprise me. It’s not the first time Kramer was misrepresented either. Last year’s “Case Against Breastfeeding” article by Hanna Rosin also quoted Kramer as saying breastmilk was not as beneficial as once thought. The telling quote is this: “Such statements from the rich part of the world could cause...
what you can do for haiti
thecurvature: abbyjean: aside from donating money: 1) Get ready for a long haul. Usually, disasters like this see a huge outpouring of cash and interest in the immediate aftermath, which almost all disappears within the first 6-12 months. This disaster was large enough that it is going to take years, if not decades, to rebuild. The most important thing you can do moving forward is to keep...

Woman, Uncensored: STFU about NIP →
Fucking YES. What she said.
Let's not go to Stormwind, it is a silly place.
Lich King: I am the Lich King!
Peasant Woman: Well I didn't vote for you.
Lich King: You don't vote for kings!
Peasant Woman: Well how'd you become king then?
Lich King: The demon lord Kil’jaeden, wreathed in smoldering flame, encased Frostmourne and the soul of Ner'zhul in a block of ice from the depths of the Nether and cast it into Azeroth. Ner'zhul thrust out the blade whereupon I found it in Northrend, signifying that I, Arthas, was to carry Frostmourne. THAT is why I am king.
Peasant Man: Listen, dead orcs lyin' in snow banks distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical arctic ceremony!
On Being the Girl On the Subway
thecurvature: meloukhia: Setting my actual gender aside for the moment, I’m usually read as a woman, which means that I get to experience the full delights of misogyny in flower as illustrated by the Tumblr Staff earlier. Being the girl on the [public transit] isn’t cute, or funny. It’s just shitty. Here’s a story from the days when I lived in San Francisco: I was on the 108 Treasure Island...
