LIKE A VIRGIN? THE PAIN AND POLITICS OF RESTITCHING YOUR HYMEN 

 

It’s hard to believe that the hymen, a thin piece of mucosal tissue that partially covers the vaginal opening, has been getting so much airtime recently. It was only a few months ago that rapper T.I. made (unlikely) headlines when he revealed that he takes his 18-year-old daughter to the gynecologist every year to check if her hymen is intact. Earlier this year, the UK health secretary began an investigation into the “dreadful practice” of “virginity repair” surgery, following a report by the Sunday Times, which revealed that there’s at least 22 private clinics across the UK offering hymenoplasty procedures. In short: it’s 2020 and, somehow, men are still trying to control our bodies.

Despite years of research that disproves the myth surrounding the hymen – that it breaks after the first time you’ve had sex – it’s connotations of purity pertain. You can break your hymen horse-riding, or riding a bike, but the social constructs surrounding virginity seem dependent on it staying intact.

“In Muslim communities, women should be virgins when marrying their husbands. If it’s found that a woman has lost her virginity before marriage, the consequences can be dire,” says Halaleh Taheri, who heads the Middle Eastern Women and Society Organisation, which supports women refugees or asylum seekers who have experienced gender discrimination and honour-related violence. “Even if a woman is not directly pressured by her family to undergo it, the beliefs that she has been indoctrinated with since childhood, the shame and dishonour that she will bring to her family if they find out she’s no longer a virgin is enough pressure to force herself to resort to this practice, whether she wants to or not.”

Parent resistance thwarts local school desegregation efforts 

 

As they try to address stubborn school segregation, many of the nation's school districts confront a familiar obstacle: resistance from affluent, well-organized and mostly white parents to changes affecting their children’s classrooms.

From New York City to Richmond, Virginia, sweeping proposals to ease inequities have been scaled back or canceled after encountering a backlash. The debates have been charged with emotion and racist rhetoric reminiscent of the aftermath of Brown vs. Board of Education, the U.S. Supreme Court decision that threw out state laws establishing segregated schools.

While the federal government has largely stepped back from the aggressive role it played decades ago in school desegregation, some local districts have acted in recognition of increasingly apparent racial divides and the long-established educational benefits of integration.

First human-monkey chimera raises concern among scientists 
 

Efforts to create human-animal chimeras have rebooted an ethical debate after reports emerged that scientists have produced monkey embryos containing human cells.

A chimera is an organism whose cells come from two or more “individuals”, with recent work looking at combinations from different species. The word comes from a beast from Greek mythology which was said to be part lion, part goat and part snake.

The latest report, published in the Spanish newspaper El País, claims a team of researchers led by Prof Juan Carlos Izpisúa Belmonte from the Salk Institute in the US have produced monkey-human chimeras. The research was conducted in China “to avoid legal issues”, according to the report.

Chimeras are seen as a potential way to address the lack of organs for transplantation, as well as problems of organ rejection. Scientists believe organs genetically matched to a particular human recipient could one day be grown inside animals. The approach is based on taking cells from an adult human and reprogramming them to become stem cells, which can give rise to any type of cell in the body. They are then introduced into the embryo of another species.

The Barrage of Bad News About Climate Change Is Triggering 'Eco-Anxiety,' Psychologists Say 

 

When news about the environment becomes grim, you might be overcome by an urge to hide or collapse.

On last week's episode of HBO drama "Big Little Lies," 9-year-old Amabella did both. The character's metallic boots were found sticking out of a classroom closet following a lesson on climate change, and the internet collectively nodded in recognition.

Suffering in solitude: A quarter of Americans say they have no one to confide in about their problems - and most hide their real feelings from the people closest to them 

 

Nearly a quarter (24 percent) of Americans feel like they have no one to confide in – and 70 percent say they hold back how they really feel when sharing with a friend, partner or co-worker, according to a new survey.

Most (90 percent) of Americans say they downplay their emotions to avoid worrying or stressing out a loved one, according to the survey by OnePoll on behalf of BetterHelp, a web-based counseling service.

Researchers discovered that young people (age 18-30) are most likely to isolate themselves because they are uncomfortable talking about money, job stress, parents or friends with their significant other.

Psychologist who played a key role in opposing LGBT lessons in schools is to be investigated over links to material calling for gay people to be 'lashed and killed' 

 

A psychologist, who has continuously opposed LGBT lessons in schools, is to be investigated over her opposition to homosexuality.

Dr Kate Godfrey-Faussett, who is a lead figure in the Stop RSE campaign and converted to Islam 25 years ago, is now under investigation by the Health and Care Professions Council over her views, The Guardian has reported.

An investigation carried by the Observer earlier this year found that the National Secular Society (NSS) had written to the Health and Care Professions Council, the governing body for Godfrey-Faussett's profession, over whether her role is compatible with the ethical standards of her professional body.

In a letter seen by the paper, dated on February 18, the NSS warned that the campaign group had 'promoted material which says the punishment for homosexuality is death.'

I’m Ugly. Will I Ever Stand a Chance in the Gay Dating World? 

 

Dear Papi,

I’m 25, just moved back to my hometown, and on three dating apps with no years of relationship experience under my belt. Papi, the truth is I’m beginning to think I’m...ugly. I feel I have a lot to give, but when it comes to getting a boyfriend, I’m scared I don’t look the part. I know it might sound shallow, but it’s all I can think about right now. What should I do, and will I ever find love?

Yours,
Ugly Duckling

The Fear of Reaching Out 

 

The word, “Crazy” is thrown around quite a bit in our American society.

Hollywood movies depict depraved serial killers with a perceived mental illness, murdering scores of innocent (Typically neurotypical protagonists)

The entertainment industry seems to have quite a hold on many different labels of people, and people living with mental illness are not disqualified from that.

For instance, I was diagnosed with mental illness back in 2004 and it changed my life for the worst. I lack energy, I get depressed, I have trouble finding and keeping work, and the majority of my time goes into writing and keeping up with mental health appointments. But back to the point, I have never even hit anyone in my life, and I know scores of others living with mental illness who are the most compassionate people I’ve ever met. Hollywood has a way of playing on ignorance, and judging by comments left about films like these, our culture is very ignorant about mental health/mental illness.

Duncan Hines cake mix recall: FDA probes salmonella risk 

 

Food giant Conagra Brands is recalling 2.4 million boxes of its Duncan Hines cake mix, with federal health officials warning that one variety of the popular product tested positive for salmonella.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has received reports of five illnesses linked to Duncan Hines, according to the Food and Drug Administration. Reports of additional illnesses are expected due to time lags between when an illness occurs and when the CDC receives confirmed lab results.

Suicide By Women Is A Major Public Health Concern In India 

 

In June, M., a 28-year-old woman jumped from the second floor of her home in Madurai, India — 20 feet above a rocky, tar road — after a bitter argument with her husband. He had accused her of having an affair.

This was M.'s second attempt to kill herself. She survived the fall. M. had been prescribed antidepressants after her first suicide attempt seven years before but had stopped taking them. She was admitted to Madurai's Government Rajaji hospital shortly after her second suicide attempt. Three weeks later, doctors recommended that she have surgery using metallic plates to fuse her shattered spine, but her mother, uncertain and fearful about the outcome, refused to let M. go under the knife.

She was discharged a month after her ordeal and remains bedridden in her mother's home, unable to walk. Her two children, an 8-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy, who last visited her a week ago, still live with their father. Her mother gave us the details of her story and asked that only her daughter's initial be used to protect her privacy.

Experts Explain Why LGBTQ People Have More Eating Disorders 

 

While the National Eating Disorder Association reports that the LGBTQ community is disproportionately plagued by eating disorders, experts are saying that being a minority contributes to this dilemma.

Dr. Norman H. Kim, national director for program development at Reasons Eating Disorder Center, believes that queer people are drawn to unhealthy eating habits because of minority stress. Behaviors such as binging, purging, and undereating are a symptom of chronic social stress LGBTQ people experience as minorities, he told Stylecaster.

The rates at which queer people are having this reaction to being otherized are alarming.

LGBT Community Has Poorer Health Outcomes, Assessment Finds 

 

"LGBT people experience the same stressors that anyone else does and when you add their internalized feelings and perceptions of discrimination, there are obvious implications for overall health," Stepleman says. "This assessment is meant to provide an overview, but it helps establish an important baseline and will help us look at the impact of minority stress on a lot of other health variables."

Minority stress describes chronically high levels of stress faced by members of minority groups and can be due to things like poor social support and low socioeconomic status. Many studies have shown that it can contribute to health problems like high blood pressure and anxiety.

Drugs, Alcohol and Suicide Are Killing So Many Young Americans That the Country’s Average Lifespan Is Falling 

 

Young Americans are dying in rising numbers because of drugs, alcohol and suicide, according to new federal data.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) issued its annual comprehensive health and mortality report, which analyzes trends in death rates by cause and demographic. Drugs, alcohol and suicide, the report says, have contributed to the first drops in U.S. life expectancy since 1993. While U.S. life expectancy rose from 77.8 to 78.6 years between 2006 and 2016, the trend reversed during the end of the decade, leading to a 0.3-year decline between 2014 and 2016 — in large part because of rising rates of drug overdoses, suicide and liver disease, as well as Alzheimer’s.

WHAT IS A VAMPIRE FACIAL? SPA CLIENTS MAY HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO HIV DURING PROCEDURE 

 

Earlier this week, the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) issued an alert urging people who had received “vampire facials” at a spa in Albuquerque to report to the Midtown Public Health Office for HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C testing.

After an inspection of the spa on September 7, the NMDOH determined that its hygiene practices were not up to the required standard and closed it down immediately, according to a statement. The inspection was undertaken after a client developed an infection that may have resulted from a procedure carried out there.

Passengers Asked to Pee in Trash Bags and Bottles on This Flight from Hell 

 

Last Friday, a woman on an American Airlines flight from Phoenix to Hawaii got up to go to the bathroom and was faced with a dilemma most people only deal with on poorly planned road trips or out on the deep playa at Burning Man. When she made it to the front of the plane, a flight attendant calmly told her that if she wanted to pee, she'd have to do so in a trash bag.
