Hairtrending: more than hair less than life

I post images, links, text and items that strike my fancy. You may or may not agree with my choices, but I hope you find that they cause you to stop and think.
That's what triggered me to post them.

Feel free to ask away. "The only stupid question is the question unasked." Although, I reserve the right to supply stupid answers, usually unintentionally.

Oh, all images are not mine, although I wish I had an eighth of the talent most of the image makers possess. Any images that you have control over and want removed, ask and I'll try to remove them. Just let me know the specific image.

Except you can’t show a topless woman on TV - and you can’t defibrillate a woman in a bra. So victims of heart attacks on TV are *always* male. Did you know that a woman having a heart attack is more likely to have back or jaw pain than chest or left arm pain? I didn’t - because I’ve never seen a woman having a heart attack. I’ve been trained in CPR and Advanced First Aid by the Red Cross over 15 times in my life, the videos and booklets always have a guy and say the same thing about clutching his chest and/or bicep.

And people laugh when I tell them women are still invisible in this world.

re: feministing - for women, heart attacks look different

Things I did not know, but should.

They put up some awesome billboards in austin a few months ago showing the signs of a heart attack that women will feel. And I know they were effective because I was in the car when mando saw the billboard and said “Man I had no idea women had different symptoms for heart attacks!”

Way to go city of mine :)

Even better?  A woman having all the “classic” (read: male) symptoms of heart attack is more than twice as likely to be sent home from the ER than to be checked out, EKGed, and examined.

Because we’re just hormone-addled hysterics.  :-(
