Intersex babies are not having difficulty with sexual identity or self-image. The parents are, and parental anxiety about the appearance of a child’s genitals should be treated with counseling, not with surgery to the child.

Yes. Yes. Yes. (via lauraroselam)

it’s also important to note how often it’s not even parental issues so much as naked medical abuse that is involved

like my parents not only weren’t behind my surgery but weren’t even informed it happened that’s how blase the doctors were about it

The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland

At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.

The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”

Never in a million years would Ichabod Crane even conceive of the notion that the feelings he has for Abbie are more than friendly.

Never in a million years would Abbie Mills ever allow herself to even contemplate having more than friendly feelings for Crane.

But Katrina knows. Katrina saw what they can’t even imagine.

Abbie and Ichabod are inevitable. It may not be now but in the future. But it will happen. 

Mulder and Scully were inevitable too. I’ve learned to just ignore what the writers say.

the writers AND the producers said that they wrote the scene so Katrina could see the love between them. it’s gonna be a ways off, but Ichabbie is going to happen. that ship will sail.
