At what point do you take girls out of school altogether because boys can’t handle it?

#yesallwomen have a right to an education without fashion policing by sexist administrators

^ this, tho… the message in these ridiculous dress codes remains “boys deserve an undistracted education, and you-GIRL-are a distraction… and your education comes second. You should be grateful, anyway… it’s really more than you deserve.” and i actually am not going to repeat how it reinforces rape culture because really, i’m just so damn tired of the messages we send young women about being nothing more than an accesory in a man’s life… fuck that. and fuck awful myopic dress codes… (via ginandbird)

This parent is right.  The school is sending a message that girls’ clothes are supposed to distract boys; that boys can use them as an excuse, that girls when assaulted should blame themselves because they must have worn the wrong thing, because their clothes made them unfit to mingle with their peers.  Have I got that right? (rhetorical)

Literally the best bromance to ever bromance

I have a lot of feels about turk and jd. Yeah they were both straight but they loved each other and it never was a “no homo” thing. It got pretty homo at times and they embraced it and it didn’t matter. The joke wasn’t that they were gay, it wasn’t even a joke. They had serious friend love for each other and showed it in healthy ways. It showed cis men that were compassionate for each other in a positive way(yeah it got goofy at times but it was a comedy)

Sorry I love scrubs.

I have an unabashedly sincere love for Scrubs and I don’t care what anyone else says

I don’t love scrubs because jd is an ass and its just kind of annoying to watch, but I love their friendship. :)

I did.

I had *gasp* a couple B’s too.

Heads up: so did pretty much every medblr. ROLL CALL GUYS, LET US SHARE OUR LITANY OF GPA MISDEEDS WITH THE PREMEDLINGS.

I totally had a C. It was in choir.

D- in a freshman bio lab. Can anyone beat that? *Ahem* plus a C- in econ.

Some form of A: 16 (there might be a couple more here from classes I took at other colleges idfk I don’t care)

Some form of B: 17

Some form of C: 4

Some form of D: 1

Oh look, I’m in med school. Huh, look at that. 

Why? Grades are only one aspect the admissions committees look at.

Random, this post gives me life.  

I know that the general rule/culture among premeds and med students is to not talk about our grades, but this kind of paranoia might be a negative drawback of that.  Random can’t be the only one who got into med school with a pretty normal looking, mixed transcript.  I kind of think that maybe the culture of being silent on the topic of grades is because people use them to either a, show off and be dicks or b, shame you.  If we’re supposed to be sort of the Anti-SDN, and not want to partake in either of those behaviors, then maybe a little bit of discussion of hard numbers would be beneficial? I mean there are a *lot* of premeds who have this fear.  The Medblrs are forever addressing this, especially around the end of the the school year.  There was even that nice “Premeds Calm Yo Tits” post that (I believe) MD-A and Aspdocs made like over a year ago.  I just wonder if some actual numbers might be beneficial…

Admission #181: Saving People, Hunting Things

"We can’t save everyone…though we try."

My resident says this with a sigh to our six man team: him, two interns, my fellow 4th year, the third year, and I, slouched, curled, and slumped in various positions on plastic rolling chairs in the unusually quiet 7th floor workroom at 6PM. No one wants to go home. Everyone feels a responsibility that tethers them to the hospital, that does not disappear, even when your heavy white coat is hung in a closet or thrown on the floor.
