Episode 13: Unafraid of the Dark, Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey

Neil DeGrasse Tyson throwing some of the most incredible shade I’ve ever seen.

Women with spinal cord injuries report being denied birth control by their doctors in a manner that suggests their sexual lives are over. Elle Becker, a paraplegic, [reported]: ‘About four days after I broke my back I asked my surgeon, “I don’t have my birth control pills with me. Is there something we can do about that?” He said “Well, you don’t need those anymore,” and walked out of my room.’

Naomi Elishuv had played for a number of orchestras, including Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, but was forced to stop performing professionally two decades ago when she began suffering from a condition called essential tremor. During the procedure which was performed under local anaesthetic, surgeons asked Elishuv to play so her brain was active. The footage shows Elishuv shaking and struggling to play the violin before she is wheeled into surgery. Surgeons are then seen operating on her brain behind a huge plastic curtain. As soon as the procedure is complete, the violinist’s hands become steady, and she is able to play unhindered for the first time in 20 years.

"healthy living" is a bourgeois construct to victim blame the working class for not being motivated to eat and live healthy after being forced to work exorbitant hours that takes up a majority of their life. only the rich can afford to be healthy.

Also it shames and marginalises people with disabilities and chronic illness and a whole shit ton more problematic stuff too. Fuck the concept of “healthy living”.

Hm.
