Genie is the pseudonym for a feral child who spent nearly all of the first thirteen years of her life locked inside a bedroom strapped to a potty chair. She was a victim of one of the most severe cases of social isolation ever documented. Genie was discovered by Los Angeles authorities on November 4, 1970.
During the day, she was tied to a child’s toilet in diapers; some nights, when she had not been completely forgotten, she was bound in a sleeping bag and placed in an enclosed crib with a cover made of metal screening. Indications are that Genie’s father beat her with a large stick if she vocalized, and he barked and growled at her like a dog in order to keep her quiet. He also rarely allowed his wife and son to leave the house or even to speak, and he expressly forbade them to speak to Genie. By the age of 13, Genie was almost entirely mute, commanding a vocabulary of about 20 words and a few short phrases (nearly all negative, such as “stop it” and “no more”).
I learnt about this in psychology its so so sad but really interesting
WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW MORE?! -
be considerate to everyone
Yesterday I met one of my roommate’s friends and she was really short, she reminded me of one of my best friends in junior high and I always used to bug her about being short, everyone did, and I was this close to cracking a joke smugly about feeling tall for once but I’m really glad that I second guessed myself because she actually has some form of dwarfism
think before you beak
Yup,treat others as you yourself would like to be treated. It aint hard but easy to forget. I never understand why giving people shit about something they can’t control was funny (no one really volunteers to be a dwarf, morbid obese, shortsighted, freakishly tall etc etc), I think it says more about the person being a smart-ass then the person who has learnt how to deal with it. Although giving your friends shit after you have know them for 10 years is a different ball game lol
Also since your a shorty you should know the deal and not hit that low hanging fruit ;p
Am thinking we add a few more letters to make it accurate = Booty
;] Nice to see it again.
in which Totoro boops Mana Ashida on the head.
What I’m trying to say is that I would treat someone else the way I wish I could’ve been treated because that’s just how I operate
Thats pretty much a good approach to life in general, virginity issues aside. Although its easy to forget when caught up in an issue. Perspective, perspective….
is there a single man in the world that doesn’t like redheads I dont think its possible
redheads make up only 1% of the worlds population (or something like that) and people always desire rare things. But yeah as other pointed out only seems to apply to women lol
lol kill me
ah your too cute a spider to squish.
I don’t want to do anything today other than eat i feel so lazy and apathetic and my hunger will not go away
