Ok so i don’t know how many of you saw my embroidery set from last year showing women in film statistics, but to tie in with International Women’s day over on Screenqueens and the learning I’ve done in the past year, I’ve added a couple more.

HIV Has Been Cured in a Child for the First Time

HIV Cure: New Drug ‘Vacc-4x’ May Become First Functional Cure Against the Virus

The Man Who Had HIV and Now Does Not

This is HUGE news, and of course no one is talking about it because it is not a part of popular culture. For the first time in the history of the world, there is a possible preventative cure for one of the most deadliest viral diseases to have entered the human gene pool. There is hope for those who have been diagnosed with a disease that may have given them only 20 or so years to live. This breakthrough in the science/pharmaceutical community means that other viral diseases and genetic mutations that were once incurable are now on the table for complete eradication. I’m absolutely seething that no one is talking about this on the news 24/7.

Pattern of sadness

Something I have realized today is that sadness is a domino effect. Because you are sad you put up a hurtful defense mechanism or avoid people. Because of that, others think you do not like them and don’t reach out to you. Because of that, you think others do not like you. You become sadder, and it continues to affect your relationships.

Everything I do affects my relationships, and what I realize now too that everything I don’t do does too. I’ve been on both sides of the sadness, and to everyone I’ve inadvertently created a distance or disconnect… I am sorry.

And for the next time I feel no one likes me, I have to remember to reach out, not hide.

I'm a social justice re-blogger. I'm still coming up with my own ideas, but sometimes they aren't even relevant. I am trying to find my place in the movement towards social justice with my white, cis, able and heterosexual privilege. I'm an advocate for many movements and I think this is the place to spread the ideas that people need to hear.
