The wonderful Laverne Cox being interviewed on the Totally Biased show. Laverne mentions Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson, and talks about some real shit. This has to be one of the greatest interviews to happen on television in a very long time.

I wasn’t a big fan of Totally Biased before but this interview is GREAT. Laverne Cox is so brilliant, insightful and um…so glamorous too. I love that she mentioned “possibility models” over “role models” per se, and seeing trans women succeed let her know it’s possible. I love the phrase possibility model; it allows the predesescor the space for humanity instead of forced perfection, but also notes their positive impact as a trailblazer.

Laverne! <3

  Top Ebola Doctor  from Sierra Leone has died.
Sierra Leone’s top Ebola doctor, Sheikh Umar Khan died  on Tuesday from complications of the disease. 
He was the main doctor at the  front lines of what is now considered the worst Ebola outbreak in history, with 670 dead, primarily in West Africa. He is credited with treating more than 100 victims and has previously been hailed as a national hero.
One small bit of good news: The current outbreak has proven to be less deadly than previous strands of the disease. Instead of a 90% mortality rate, 60% of the infected have died. And in some areas in Guinea, the situation has stabilized, with Doctors Without Borders even closing one of its Ebola treatment centers.
Still, the fight continues…

Important Things About the Ebola Outbreak
You’re not hearing enough about it because it’s happening in Africa. Plain and simple. Western Media (of which I was once a naive member) does not consider the deaths of non-whites and non-Westerners as important, so while this disease kills, it isn’t killing the right people to get enough attention.
With that said, officials have made it clear that they think there’s no chance the disease could spread outside of Africa, and definitely not to the United States.
That’s bullshit, in my opinion. I’ve spent a lot of time researching disease transmission, viruses, etc., both professionally and in my spare time. It may not spread, but they can’t know that at this stage. It’s the largest outbreak of Ebola EVER. There are already hundreds dead, and the number is growing.
"Ebola virus disease (formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever) is a severe, often fatal illness, with a case fatality rate of up to 90%. It is one of the world’s most virulent diseases.The infection is transmitted by direct contact with the blood, body fluids and tissues of infected animals or people. Severely ill patients require intensive supportive care. During an outbreak, those at higher risk of infection are health workers, family members and others in close contact with sick people and deceased patients." [x]
There is no cure and no vaccine, and most people are not educated on protecting themselves from this disease.
Don’t freak out, but we should all be paying attention.
