Dear Receptionist,

If a patient calls in stating they are in pain, your ONLY reply should be:

I am sorry you are experiencing pain. Please come in now and, we will be glad to have the doctor see you as soon as possible.

Young, Black and Victorian: Wonderful photographs of Victorian women of color

Here are some photographs of Victorian women of color that date from 1860 to 1901. Unfortunately, a lot of these photographs have no names attached to the women posed in the photographs.
Photos of Women of Color from this era are hard to come by, especially “family” photographs.
A couple of these photos were taken when there was still slavery in the United States.

The Jezebel Effect: Why the Slut Shaming of Famous Queens Still Matters

Book Description
Publication Date: February 26, 2015
Have you heard that Catherine the Great died having sex with her horse? Or perhaps you prefer the story that Anne Boleyn had six fingers and slept with her brother? Or that Katheryn Howard slept with so many members of the Tudor court that they couldn’t keep track of them all? As juicy and titillating as the tales might be, they are all, patently untrue.

Modern PR firms may claim that no publicity is bad publicity, but that, too, is untrue. The fact that Cleopatra is better known for her seductions than her statecraft, and that Jezebel is remembered as a painted trollop rather than a faithful wife and religiously devout queen, isn’t a way for historians to keep these interesting women in the public eye, rather it’s a subversion of their power, a re-writing of history to belittle and shame these powerful figures, preventing them from becoming icons of feminine strength and capability.

Slut shaming has its roots in our earliest history, but it continues to flourish in our supposedly post-feminist, equal-rights world. It is used to punish women for transgressions against gender norms, threatening the security of their place in society and warning that they’d better be “good girls” and not rock the patriarchal boat, or they, too could end up with people believing they’ve slept with everything from farm animals to relatives.

This is The Jezebel Effect.

Seems I have acquired a Porch Cat ... but, maybe it is just the weather ...

I live in a woodsy, rural area that borders a county/state/federal park and, I can't see my neighbors for the trees.

Lately (for the past few months, even) I have noticed a tuxedo cat hanging around my yard. Seems to get along with my two cats but, he (pretty sure he is a male) runs away whenever he sees me.

However, since we have had snow three times in the past week, this fellow has decided to make my porch his ... home ... ??

I have fixed up two boxes with flannel for when my cats decide to hang out all night (very rare but, they love a full moon) and evidently this fellow has decided that he really likes sleeping in one of them because for the past few mornings I have seen him coming out of one of the boxes (both are under windows) and he hangs on my front porch. The past three mornings when I open my front door he does not run, instead he meows at me in a very plaintive tone. My heart ... be still (he is gorgeous black tuxedo with a black nose that has a full circle white ring around it ... I have to get a picture and post it, very distinctive marking) anyway, he has tamed me and I must feed him.
Although, he honestly appears healthy and well fed and I really think he belongs to some nameless neighbor down the road a piece (surely, he has a home). Maybe, he is just seeking temporary respite until the weather breaks

I don't know.

But, he looks like he belongs here. Really. My female is solid black and my male is white with black markings (on the top of his head is a perfect black heart shaped spot ) So, this guy looks like he fits right in and, my two seem to be accepting of him.

Anyway, I have a visitor but, I don't know for how long.

Thanks for reading. Any comments or advice is welcomed.
