During the Bubonic Plague, doctors wore these bird-like masks to avoid becoming sick. They would fill the beaks with spices and rose petals, so they wouldn’t have to smell the rotting bodies. 

A theory during the Bubonic Plague was that the plague was caused by evil spirits. To scare the spirits away, the masks were intentionally designed to be creepy. 

Mission fucking accomplished

Okay so I love this but it doesn’t cover the half of why the design is awesome and actually borders on making sense.

It wasn’t just that they didn’t want to smell the infected and dead, they thought it was crucial to protecting themselves. They had no way of knowing about what actually caused the plague, and so one of the other theories was that the smell of the infected all by itself was evil and could transmit the plague. So not only would they fill their masks with aromatic herbs and flowers, they would also burn fires in public areas, so that the smell of the smoke would “clear the air”. This all related to the miasma theory of contagion, which was one of the major theories out there until the 19th century. And it makes sense, in a way. Plague victims smelled awful, and there’s a general correlation between horrible septic smells and getting horribly sick if you’re around what causes them for too long.

You can see now that we’ve got two different theories as to what caused the plague that were worked into the design. That’s because the whole thing was an attempt by the doctors to cover as many bases as they could think of, and we’re still not done.

The glass eyepieces. They were either darkened or red, not something you generally want to have to contend with when examining patients. But the plague might be spread by eye contact via the evil eye, so best to ward that off too.

The illustration shows a doctor holding a stick. This was an examination tool, that helped the doctors keep some distance between themselves and the infected. They already had gloves on, but the extra level of separation was apparently deemed necessary. You could even take a pulse with it. Or keep people the fuck away from you, which was apparently a documented use.

Finally, the robe. It’s not just to look fancy, the cloth was waxed, as were all of the rest of their clothes. What’s one of the properties of wax? Water-based fluids aren’t absorbed by it. This was the closest you could get to a sterile, fully protecting garment back then. Because at least one person along the line was smart enough to think “Gee, I’d really rather not have the stuff coming out of those weeping sores anywhere on my person”.

So between all of these there’s a real sense that a lot of real thought was put into making sure the doctors were protected, even if they couldn’t exactly be sure from what. They worked with what information they had. And frankly, it’s a great design given what was available! You limit exposure to aspirated liquids, limit exposure to contaminated liquids already present, you limit contact with the infected. You also don’t give fleas any really good place to hop onto. That’s actually useful.

Beyond that, there were contracts the doctors would sign before they even got near a patient. They were to be under quarantine themselves, they wouldn’t treat patients without a custodian monitoring them and helping when something had to be physically contacted, and they would not treat non-plague patients for the duration. There was an actual system in place by the time the plague doctors really became a thing to make sure they didn’t infect anyone either.

These guys were the product of the scientific process at work, and the scientific process made a bitchin’ proto-hazmat suit. And containment protocols!

Are you a Male College Student in California? FUCKING RUN.

The State Legislature has passed, in its glorious wisdom a bill that mandates that colleges must observe a “Yes means Yes” standard on college campuses.

Or you can be convicted of rape.

Keep in mind, the wording concerning body language was intentionally left out. This means if a girl doesn’t explicitly say “Yes” you’re a fucking rapist as far as the State of California is concerned.

image

If a girl sucks your dick without first saying she wants to… you’ve raped her. Because let’s be honest, this standard will only be applied in one direction.

Keep in mind, you’re not just required to ask your partner if she’s consenting as you engage in sex.. you have to fucking REPEATEDLY ASK DURING THE SEX ACT because if you don’t she can say “I tensed up and he didn’t stop therefore he raped me”.

I’m not fucking making that up. That the actual example they use.

image

So… in closing. If you’re a male and you attend a college in California FUCKING RUN because your college has a vested financial interest in fucking destroying you.

image

Fuck Feminists.

Watch out guys in Cali, this could ruin your life! :c be careful ❤️

Wtf

…..? If a girl doesn’t say yes to you it means no….. Is this a foreign concept to men or some shit? Is consent not a thing? What?

You’re not thinking this through are you?

Here’s what it takes to make you a rapist according to this law:

Ask her consent to talk about sex every single time (or its sexual harassment).

Ask her consent to initiate sex every single time. Ask mid sex act every single time. Ask every single time you ever switch positions.

Or you’re a rapist.

And when you cuddle up after sex ask to to touch her tit. Then ask permission to kiss her.

Every single time.

Remember body language was intentionally removed at the behest of feminists.

So you have to verbally ask before, during, and conceivably after every single interaction that might be even vaguely construed as sexual or you’re open to prosecution for sexual harassment, assault, or rape.

No man can adhere to that law. None. No woman could either but let’s be honest, this law will only ever be used to prosecute males.

honestly,I’ve never had a dude NOT do this. I’ve been fucking the same guy for over two years and he still asks me if what he’s doing is ok. I’ve never asked to him to this-it’s clearly obvious to both of us that I would fuck him anytime of day. he asked because he gets SATISFACTION out of knowing what he’s doing is causing me pleasure— and respect that. guess I just got lucky.

Notice in this entire paragraph she never once mentioned that she asked him if it was ok?

Fucking Rapists.
