REMINDER: if you have a vagina and want to use Plan B as an emergency contraceptive, it loses effectiveness if you weigh more than 165 lbs (74.84 kg) and is completely ineffective for those that weight more than 176 lbs (79.83 kg) (x)

This is horrifying. And sadly true.

The idea of efficacy being affected by BMI has really recently been called into question, I’ve actually been writing up some stuff about this for my job, here’s a little more information about this:

  • "Having assessed all the available evidence on the effectiveness of emergency contraceptives, the CHMP considered that the data available are too limited and not robust enough to conclude with certainty that contraceptive effect is reduced with increased body weight, as stated in the product information for Norlevo,” the EMA said.” - "Weight Not a Factor in Emergency Contraception: EMA Panel," Megan Brooks, Medscape
  • Here’s the press release regarding the start of the literature review by the European Medicines Agency.
  • Here’s a press release regarding the same study quoted above, also by the European Medicines Agency.
  • Here’s another overall review of existing literature from the Cochrane Collaboration, “We found 9 reports with data from 13 trials and 49,712 women. Five reports from 2002 to 2012 compared BMI groups. Only one found more pregnancies among overweight or obese women using one of the combined birth control pills.

I don’t quite have time to track down any literature specifically about Plan B, but overall it’s better to take whatever form of emergency contraception is appropriate, healthy and available (if necessary) than to not. It looks like by far the most important factor in emergency contraception is to not delay taking it, so it’s recommended that anyone who is in need of EC take it as soon as possible regardless of BMI or weight.

i’m working on some incredible shit with B ( gerwulfa ) for next month and another bomb-as-fuck project with Marcia ( tiniercrown ) and it’s gonna be

oh my god

sincere question: how much money would someone have to throw at you to get a Rosalina pin up?

Oh  man good question! I usually go on a budget system, honestly. If someone gives me a range they’re comfortable spending I can give them a decent gauge on what I can do with that budget in mind. For something like a commissioned pin-up I’d want it to be very high quality and polished which takes time of course, so it would probably at lowest be $50 but of course there’s wiggle room.

I’ve got some commissions to wrap up from people helping me with my hard-drive problems and a couple others, but I’m happy to talk via email and schedule something for early-mid october if you’re interested! (oops i forgot, my email is villainsgoleft @ gmail.com btw, sorry i forgot to mention LOL)

CNN has obtained a video, taken shortly after Michael Brown was shot, that shows a contractor who had been working near the shooting site describing the incident in a manner that matches other eyewitness testimony—raising his arms and shouting “man, he was going like this,” as if to suggest that Brown had adopted a posture of surrender before he died.

Two contractors are shown in the video, and both have spoken to CNN; one also spoke previously to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and one to Fox affiliate KTVI. The individual who is shouting and raising his arms in in the video told CNN that “the cop didn’t say get on the ground. He just kept shooting.” The other said that he saw officer Darren Wilson “chasing” Brown, that Wilson fired a shot at Brown while Brown’s back was turned, and that Brown raised his hands before he died, though it’s not clear at what point the witness saw Brown’s hands raised. (For what it’s worth, it seems like the worker who spoke to KTVI is the one wearing a pink shirt in the video and that the worker who spoke to the Post-Dispatch is wearing a green shirt.)

The CNN account notes that the workers are not from Ferguson and did not know the Brown family—a detail that could increase their perceived objectivity vis a vis witnesses from Brown’s neighborhood.

33 Days since Mike Brown’s murder, and his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. How much more evidence is needed to make a fucking arrest?!  #farfromover #staywoke #ArrestDarrenWilson
