Feminism, Technology, and Sexualities, dialog with Anne Balsamo, Julie Levin Russo and Faith Wilding
Okay, so the hair isn’t perfect, but it really is my first hair that I’ve completed from start to finish. I did all the original colors, shine and no shine. The knockers are accessories found in the hat category and has 20 swatches. I’m going to be honest, this hair does not look good in lighter colors, but they are still there. I’ll probably have this uploaded in a few days, I haven’t finished the lower lods.
This is soooo cute!
I love love love this reminds me of the way i used to do my daughters hair
My sims will give me life, thanks to creators like you. *HUGS*
Yaas this is so cuuuute
The rate of new HIV infections among the black and Latino MSM community is a cause for concern. Getting tested for HIV in these communities can be difficult, as stigma and accessibility hamper efforts to test for HIV. A team of researchers at the David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California Los Angeles as well as Indiana University sought to raise awareness of easy to access at-home HIV testing kits as a method of testing for HIV. Dr. Jeffrey Klausner, professor of medicine, in conjunction with researchers both at UCLA and Indiana University launched a study to test the effectiveness of using banner advertisements in promoting the use of at-home HIV testing kits.
“We wanted to increase testing by making it easier, bringing it to where men are. Most sexually active young MSM use social network apps like Grindr to find new partners.”
Recipients received a kit in the mail, a voucher that could be redeemed for a kit at a pharmacy, or a code that would produce a kit from a vending machine in the parking lot of the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center. The kit is the commercially available Orasure Oraquick in-home HIV test kit.
According to The New York Times, the study was “confined to Los Angeles, and fewer than 400 test kits were distributed, but the idea has broader potential. Grindr is used by at least five million men in 192 countries, according to its developer. In the United States, young gay black and Hispanic men are the groups most likely to be infected with H.I.V. and the least likely to be tested for it, because they often lack health insurance and fear being rejected by their families.”
The study concluded that despite the low distribution of kits, Grindr is an feasable option for reaching men who have yet to get tested, and that the users reported a relative ease when it came to using the tests. The research team is optimistic that future use of apps to distribute HIV testing kits is a good option to try and reach “high-risk” populations. The original study was published in CISRO Publishing’s Sexual Health journal and can be read online through the journal’s website for $25 dollars. The abstract and conclusion can be read there for free, as well as through a press release courtesy of UCLA here.
but when vulnerable members of society are being threatened online they couldn’t give less of a shit
this is what i was talking about a few days ago. now it’s a crime to criticize power. what’s next, getting the door kicked in cause you reblogged a post from a thought criminal?
also, did you know that the protesters who shut down i-94 were charged with “third degree rioting.” is that gonna be the new thing now when people protest without a permit?
Third degree rioting? The actual fuck?
I’m waiting for the day when my attempts to find other local radicals will get me charged with “conspiracy to conspire.”
Where are the anti-sjws who always talk about “defending freedom of speech?
Instead of a traditional interview format, the two survivors spoke directly to the camera through a selfie stick. They also chose their own filters to disguise their identity as they spoke of their harrowing experiences. Both opted for a fire-breathing dragon filter. Omar says that this helped the women feel more empowered as the masking and video recording unfolded in front of their eyes.
