medical causes

okay like people can say what they want about clarke putting bellamy on the list bc she loves him and wants him to live/ make babies with him wtvr but my big indicator of how much she loves him is in the fact that she put octavia on the list. like not even later on, no, she put her like 5th or 6th i think. now name one reason why octavia should be on there. yeah shes a good warrior i guess but they wont need warrior assassins in a airtight sealed station on an irradiated planet. sure she can have kids but i bet there are plenty of other young women who can have kids as well as skills that could be of use for the survival of the human race. she has no skills, no formal education (though im sure bellamys history lessons were pretty in depth when he taught her but still) .we dont know her full medical history cause we dk who her dad is and she never had any checkups or physicals on the ark. she doesnt even really consider herself part of skairku so why should she get sanctuary with their technology that she hates and even condemned lincoln for using? her and clarke arent close in fact i really dont think octavia even likes clarke at all anymore and clarke clearly wouldnt have put her on the list just for being her friend anyway bc we saw there was little to no sentimentality on that list. really the only good reason for putting octavia down was that she knew she was putting bellamy on the list/even if she wasnt she knew bellamy wouldnt let octavia be left outiside the ark when the doors close for good. she knows how much octavia means to bellamy. she knows putting bellamy but not octavia on the list is a moot point bc bell would just give octavia his spot. she has no good reason to put octavia on that list except that she knows what she means to bellamy and couldnt bear to put him through losing his only family so she put octavia on that list from the start

Seeing as ‘Riverdale’ Jughead Jones is creating too much disagreement I decided to leave this here, hoping it would help you understand better what Asexuality really is and maybe lessen up this disappointment

Learn what it means to be asexual.

Asexuality is a sexual orientation that means a person feels no sexual attraction to people of any gender. However, a person who identifies as asexual can still choose to have sex, can still love, can still be involved with a romantic partner or get married, and can still engage in normal relationships.

Asexuality doesn’t describe what a person chooses to do, but rather how a person feels. Asexual people have emotional needs, feel attraction to others, and can even feel arousal: they just don’t feel sexual attraction.

  • Many asexual people still identify as lesbian, gay, straight, bisexual, or pansexual (attracted to people of any gender or sexual orientation) as well.
  • Asexuality is not the same as having a low libido, which can be caused by medical or health issues, nor is it the same as repressing one’s sexual desires.

Understand the asexuality umbrella.

As with any sexual orientation, the label asexual is a generalization that doesn’t explain or represent everyone who identifies that way. All humans are unique and individual, and sexual orientation exists on a spectrum of needs, desires, interests, and attractions. Think of asexuality as an umbrella term that describes people who identify as asexual, gray-asexual, and demisexual.

  • Gray-asexual means that a person experiences sexual attraction, but either not very often or only to a minimal extent.
  • Demisexual describes a person who only feels sexual attraction to people with whom a close emotional bond has been formed.

Differentiate asexuality from abstinence and celibacy.

Abstinence is the deliberate choice to refrain from sexual activity, while celibacy is the deliberate choice to refrain from sexual activity and marriage (or marriage-like relationships). These choices may be made for religious, philosophical, moral, or other reasons. Asexuality is a lack of sexual attraction, but not necessarily a lack of sexual appetite (libido). This means asexual people can be:

  • Abstinent or celibate.
  • Sexually active through masturbation.
  • Sexually active with partners.

Learn what asexuality isn’t. Asexuality is a sexual orientation that’s distinct from heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality, pansexuality, and other orientations. However, asexuality also has nothing to do with biological sex, gender identity, or gender expression. And being asexual doesn’t mean you are aromantic, which means a person feels no romantic attraction to others.

Dating an Asexual Person

Recognize that there are different types of relationships.

Just as there are friendships, mother-daughter relationships, father-son relationships, and innumerable other types of platonic (non-sensual) relationships, so too are there many types of romantic relationships aside from just sexual romantic relationships. Dating an asexual person may open your eyes to new types of relationships, which could include:

  • Romantic non-sexual relationships, which often involve physical affection, cuddling, and commitment.
  • Aromantic non-sexual relationships, which involve a deep commitment to one another. While these relationships can include physical affection, there is no sexual or romantic element.

Communicate openly.

Regardless of the circumstances, dating is always about getting to know someone better, and dating someone who identifies as asexual is no different. The key to any relationship is free and open communication. It’s important to discuss personal boundaries early in any relationship, so that partners know what is acceptable, what’s unacceptable, and what is and isn’t expected of each other. If you are unsure of something, it’s always best to just ask!

  • It’s important not to be offended if someone you’re dating comes out to you as asexual. It’s not an excuse and it’s not an attempt to get out of the relationship. That person is just trying to be honest and open.

Understand that an asexual person can be intimate.

Asexual people often partake in romantic partnerships or relationships, but whether a person is open to physical or sexual intimacy depends on the individual. But dating doesn’t necessarily require physical or sexual interaction, and two people can develop a strong emotional or romantic relationship with or without a sexual element: intimacy is much more than just physical touching or sexual activity.

  • An asexual partner may or may not be open to sexual activity, so it’s important to communicate so that everyone involved is on the same page. Feeling sexual pleasure is different from feeling sexual attraction, and some asexual people can enjoy sex.
  • Conversely, some asexual people are not interested in sex at all, and will not be open to exploring a sexual relationship.

And to finish this, some myths:

Asexual people can’t fall in love.

Many asexuals can feel the full range of romantic emotions, from a slight crush to true love.  It’s just devoid of a sexual component.  Asexuals are not limited to platonic love, either.  When an ace feels love, it can be every bit as complex and deep as the romantic love that anyone else feels.

There is a concept of romantic (or affectional) orientation, which describes who a person is romantically attracted to.  Romantic orientation is separate from sexual orientation, although in many people, their romantic and sexual orientations do happen to coincide.  Common romantic orientations include heteroromantic (romantic attraction toward the opposite gender), homoromantic (romantic attraction toward the same gender), bi/panromantic (romantic attraction toward both/all genders), and aromantic (romantic attraction toward no gender).

Asexual people don’t/can’t have sex.

Most asexual people can have sex, and some of them do. Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction, not a lack of sexual ability.  Asexuals are physically and physiologically indistinguishable from other people, in other words, in most cases, the equipment is all there and in working order.  If an asexual person is incapable of having sex, it is usually due to some other condition, and not necessarily related to their asexuality.

So, I guess everyone has their own conclusions now as if Jughead can or can’t be in a relationship, can or can’t fall in love, can or can’t have sex. It’s pretty clear to all of us that this is different from the comics so as all the characters Jughead most likely won’t be exactly alike, that doesn’t mean Jughead is or is not asexual or won’t be in a near future.

I finished, hope it helped you.

And this is how you drive me crazy and bring out my inner pedant.

First thing, pretty sure that is wire, not cable. You pretty much don’t use cable inside a fixture. I’ve installed lamp posts. I have never put cable in one. Maybe Batman doesn’t know the difference, but normally he’s got some inventor credentials, so I would think he does.

Then, there is exactly nowhere that uses 800V supply electricity in the States. Not even a number close to 800V. That streetlamp has 480V tops. 277V is more likely, and then only at optimal conditions because street lamps are by their nature on long as runs of wire and voltage drop is a thing.

Also, wire isn’t made of bungies. You can’t just reach in and pull a bunch of it out of a fixture and stretch it over 10 ft away to where Mr. Freeze is. Pulling long runs of wire is hard ass work and copper is expensive. There wouldn’t be any big loops coiled up in there. If Batman opened up the access hatch at the bottom of a lamp post he’d be able to pull out about six inches of wire because that’s what the national electrical code requires.

Even if somehow Batman hulks out and is able to rip the wire loose from the top end of the fixture then he would have to subsequently be able to pull exposed wires down through a metal pole without them ever touching the sides. Touching the sides would cause a ground fault which would likely result in some interesting explosions and, if they are lucky, a speedy loss of power. 

And they are all grey? Which means they are all neutrals? Why would you have four neutral wires in a single lamp post?  Well, I guess if you had several circuits running through the same pipe run and they each had a dedicated neutral you might have a bunch of grey wires, but then the other circuits’ neutrals would be pulled tight through the lamp because they wouldn’t be terminating there.

And while conventional wisdom is that you can take a harder hit from a neutral than a hot, that only happens on systems with a shared neutral, not dedicated neutrals. A shared neutral could actually get you to that 800V on a 480V system, but Harper would have to know that at least one of the other circuits had been dumped and the balance was now running through the neutral, and then we loose the explanation for why there are four neutral wires.

I can kinda let the fact that live electrical wires do not in fact glow blue go because it’s a visual medium and you need to show that they are live somehow. But take heed kiddos, you cant tell if something is live by looking at it. Always assume it’s hot until you test it. Don’t try this at home. Electricity can kill you dead.


Virginia trans woman India Monroe shot to death in December, misgendered in early reports

  • A transgender Virginia resident known to friends as India Monroe was killed on Dec. 21 in Newport News, Virginia. Monroe was misgendered and identified by her birth name in news reports.
  • Initial reports said Monroe, 29, was with 37-year-old Mark Gray and they were both found shot, there was no sign of forced entry into the home. 
  • The Tidewater district medical examiner said the cause of Monroe’s death was multiple gunshot wounds and they ruled the death a homicide. 
  • The Newport News police department said they’re currently investigating Monroe’s death as a domestic incident, not a hate crime. Read more

Ugh, remember that time a very popular medical drama had two gay characters in one episode, and it turned out one had a medical problem causing him to be gay, and the other was just lying and they were really both straight? And the main character insisted no one could possibly be gay and then was proven ri-

Wait. Those were asexual characters. My bad.


Doodles from tonights stream! Trying to get back into the swing of drawing. Thanks for coming guys, and being so patient! I was really nervous to draw people again, especially in front of an audience, but I had a lot of fun!

(Sorry a couple are missing, I really don’t like how they came out, but I’ll revisit them!)

Brothers and Hearts

“The heart medication you’re taking is known to cause bouts of amnesia.”
“Yes, I… I think so. Why?”
 “Because the fingerprints on your brother’s neck were your own.

I’m still trying to unravel what this scene between Sherlock and a client is telling us. Is this something buried in Mycroft and Sherlock’s past? A forgotten memory? We have Sherlock referring to the state of Mycroft’s heart in his mind in TAB… and now we have heart medication. A memory that caused heartbreak? And the fingerprints on the brother’s neck– a guilty party who did not know they were guilty? An innocent someone framed?

Jason comes home to a drugged up Dick (drugged up on medication cause of injuries) and he's pretty loopy and basically wandering around their place in Jason's t-shirt and briefs and Jason is trying really hard to hold himself back but also help out the poor man whose being really cute and needing support and help.

This was a really cute one, I enjoyed writing it!

To Help You When You’re Injured

Out of the whole Batclan, Dick was the one that got injured the least. Not that Jason kept track, but he usually got injured at least three times for every one of Dick’s injuries. Jason’s reaction when he heard Dick was at the apartment nursing a stab wound was slight surprise. He made his way back to the apartment, already planning how he was going to patch it up based on where the wound could possibly be. 

Jason swung in through the window and took his helmet off. A few seconds later, he stumbled under the sudden weight of Dick Grayson. It took him a second to right himself and balance Dick’s weight so neither of them would fall. Jason managed to pull Dick over to the couch and he set the other male down. His limbs were loose and he was wearing one of Jason’s t-shirts and a pair of boxer briefs. 

“You’re such a gentleman Little Wing,” Dick said as he slumped to the side. His hair was ruffled and his eyes were slightly glassy. If Dick hadn’t been stabbed and then drugged to the gills, Jason knew he would have ravaged Dick right then and there. 

“Either you’ve lost a lot of blood or you’re high out of your mind,” Jason said as he grabbed the already open first aid kit. The contents were strewn around the table and the floor surrounding it. Jason made note of the antiseptic and the slightly bloody suture and thread. He sat on the couch and pushed Dick up a bit to find out where the wound was which would be way easier if Dick wasn’t trying to climb him.

So, just jumping on for a quick sec.

When jumin was SEVEN, he had an imaginary friend.
What if.
Seven is imagining al of mystic messenger. What if he never escaped his mother? What if he’s still stuck there? What if Saeran left him there, and this is his way of coping?
There is a medical condition that causes people who have been kidnapped and tortured to develop a world of their own that they live in. Some never wake up from it. Seven might be trapped inside of his mind, stuck thinking about what could have been. What he could’ve and should have done. That he should have been a better person. That maybe if he’d just been a little smarter, stronger, and better, he could have been rescued.
Saeyoung is stuck in his own little world, lost, alone, hating himself for unconscious knowledge that he wasn’t good enough to escape. And he never will.

Goodbye. Suffer.

i really don’t buy any of the memory-altering drugs as being real, that seems 100% like a too-outlandish narrative device to explain away the giant holes in the story john’s telling. like the tranq darts?? mind the gap, etc.
