i know nothing about south park, but i think it’s because of the hair colour? If his parents + his hair colour are natural, it’s impossible for him to be their kid biologically. Blonde + Redhead can’t make a brunette. But if you say it’s not cannon, hair dye is most likely the reason lol.
Wow okay that’s actually a topic which is really interesting!
Are you sure about that? I mean I’ve never done any in depth-biology studies so I can be totally be wrong but I think I remember the whole genetic lottery can be pretty weird and surprising sometimes since some gene are dominant/recessive/dormant and it’s all a question of probability but sometimes something that only has 1% chance of happening does happen
Can we really call it impossible especially when talking about genetics? Let’s say: What if both parents are carrying a black hair gene? (one of the grandparents being black haired), wouldn’t it be possible that while both parents ended up blond/ginger, the black hair gene was just dormant and the child inherited the gene from the grandparents (since some genes skip generations and we not only carry our parents’s genes but also our grandparents’s and maybe even older genes)?
I hope you all had a good one and had been surrounded by friends and family like I was. I am very thankful for the friends that actually talked to me today and acted like they wanted to make sure I was happy. @pastel-aesthetic-girl and @starfish-animations-posts , thank you two for talking to me and making my day brighter when I felt down because of something. I’m very thankful for that, thank you two so much ❤️❤️❤️
If you’re in NYS, DO NOT SIGN UP WITH FIDELIS CARE.
If you support real religious freedom (i.e. your religious choices are between you and your god, you have a right to privacy)
if you have endometreosis or any other complex reproductive-system-related condition
if you want to keep seeing your gyno, and want to be able to access all the services your gyno provides
DO NOT SIGN UP WITH FIDELIS.
They don’t have the guts to say this anywhere you’d notice it while you’re perusing the plan benefits– I actually did try quite hard to go through all the fine print but I missed it. And clearly, New York State expects you to miss it. Because when I signed up, after a couple of months, they sent me this letter, which clearly indicates that they didn’t expect me to already have realized this:
“Fidelis, the health plan you joined, does not pay for family planning services.” (That last is bold and underlined.)
The back side of the letter tells me to go to Planned Parenthood. Here’s the whole text:
(Photo is of a list of places in several counties where you can get family planning services. Note that one of the counties in the list contains no family planning clinics and lists no options.)
I have a primary care physician who does my gyno care. This tells me, in effect, that I’m going to have to find another gyno to do that, because my insurance company won’t reimburse my PCP for a visit where she mentions birth control.
Now, what my personal medical needs are, are immaterial to this discussion, but I am making this post because I know a lot of people are trying to choose plans right now. And it is NOT OBVIOUS that Fidelis is a Catholic company– they changed their name from Catholic Health Plan of NYS for that reason, I think.
So– BE AWARE, because they’re sure as hell not going to make it obvious.
I don’t know if this is legal in any other states, or if Fidelis exists in any other states, but LOOK FOR THIS KIND OF THING when you sign up!! Explicitly CHECK TO MAKE SURE.
I am going to switch away from Fidelis not because I can’t stand to go to Planned Parenthood, but because I don’t want to support a company in any way that feels it can dictate my health choices because of its religious beliefs.
