"Functional alternations in PCC have also been reported in posttraumatic stress disorders (Nutt and Malizia, 2004). The persistent cingulate activation observed following stress in women might reflect a greater degree of emotional ‘rewinding’ (melancholy thinking) or reflection of own emotional traits in the females compared to males after completion of stress tasks, which is consistent with the tendency for ruminative thinking in women (Papadakis et al., 2006)."

"Other studies, however, reported either no gender difference in stress reactivity or greater cortisol elevation in females than males, when a social rejection task was adopted as the stressor instead of achievement tasks (Stroud et al., 2002; Dickerson and Kemeny, 2004)."

on queer mental health 

"Victims of abuse who have become abusive themselves are usually completely unaware that they’ve switched roles, so deeply do they see themselves as victimized, disempowered, small, abandoned and unloved. They essentially still see themselves as child-victims, and this can result in them neglecting or lashing out..."

I just got confirmation from my home state that I am indeed registered to vote. There's a new law that says that Americans living overseas need to re-up their registration every calendar year. If you want to vote in the primaries, do this ASAP, as it took a few weeks for my confirmation to arrive.

See votefromabroad.org/ for more information.

personal, torture 

Once I was held by USSS for three days and they kept putting CS gas into the ventilation of my cell.

Y'all wonder why i don't back down from "stop whiteness, violently if we gotta?"

This is why. It's violent as shit and it just... does it, with impunity, here, downtown, with all of us oblivious and stressed about our day-to-day.

Shut. It. All. Down.
