The deadly spread of Ebola has been making headlines for weeks now, but one side of the story isn’t getting the coverage it deserves.
In one of the most affected countries, 3 out of 4 patients affected by Ebola have one thing in common: They’re all women. As reported by Lauren Wolfe at Foreign Policy, the Liberian government announced that 75% of those infected are female.
Why are women dying? Their vulnerability to the disease isn’t rooted in biological dispositions; it’s purely structural. They are caring for the sick, and it’s literaly killing them.
Make them feel loved and important in a world that says they’re wrong for existing. Tell them it’s okay to stim, or info-dump, or mimic, or be non-verbal. Defend them from shitty ableists who demand they supress their traits and don’t treat them like real people.
I think they are 100% bisexual and should be welcome in all bisexual and queer spaces, I think they’re targets for some pretty disgusting biphobia especially the gross “straight passing privilege” garbage that has been debunked a thousand times, and I think this question is loaded as fuck
