Our insurance provider denied coverage for my mother’s treatments.
Long story short, I recently found out that my mother has cancer, and my mother and I need assistance to pay for her cancer treatments. We were denied by our insurance…
give me non-sburb au fics where eridan uses his knowledge of battle and tactics and war heroes to help make plans that utterly crush the condesce’s armies, because he knows how they work, knows how they move and plan and hes studied her generals so closely he might as well know them personally, because hes used their tactics and plans in flarp games and knows their strengths and their weaknesses and how to plan around them, but nobody has ever heard of him. give me fics where he and vriska treat it like a high-stakes flarp match because theyre still kids and its the easiest way they know, and the only difference now is that theyre on the same side. give me fics where he demands to be on the front lines and in the thick of it because he thinks its expected of him and the right thing to do, and suddenly all the people theyve roped into helping them have a healthy dose of respect for him and he has no idea what to do with it. give me fics where he manages to surprise himself, never mind everyone else
One would assume that scientists, who are trained to think objectively, are completely immune to gender discrimination. However, a recent Yale study by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues suggests otherwise.
The researchers created a fictional student and sent out the student’s application to science professors at top, research-intensive universities in the United States. The professors were asked to evaluate how competent this student was, how likely they would be to hire the student, how much they would pay this student, and how willing they would be to mentor the student. All of the applications sent out were identical, except for the fact that half were for a male applicant, John, and half were for a female applicant, Jennifer. Results showed that, with statistical significance, both male and female faculty at these institutions were biased towards male students over female students.
Data from the study shows that on average, science faculty was willing to pay the male applicant about $4,000 more per year.

"We don’t need feminism"
