I saw a news report about this on T.V., she was a straight A Student who had perfect attendance and everything. Everyone loved and respected her for her skills, but when she started this experiment and people thought she was pregnant, they started treating her like garbage. Even her teachers started looking down on her like she was scum of the earth. The only people who knew she was doing this as an experiment were her school principal, her health care teacher, her boyfriend, and her mother. Her own siblings thought she was pregnant!
I mean even her friends turned on her, it was horrid. Very very sad, and as soon as she revealed during an assembly that the pregnancy was false, a lot of people were in shock as she brought up all the horrible things they said and did to her because they thought she was pregnant.
The reason for the experiment was to see how people would react and treat her if they thought she was pregnant, as opposed as to treating her as the straight A “Perfect” student they usually did. And it proved that people were horrible scumbags to her as soon as they thought she was.
holy shit. this is fucking awesome
I read this chick’s book! It was so cool.
Her book is The Pregnancy Project by Gaby Rodriguez
Pretty sure I reblogged something about this in the past, but now someone’s posted a book title and I want to read this book
"how will i explain gay couples to my children”
if you can explain to your children that an immortal man in a red suit who lives in the north pole travels around the entire world on one night every year on a sleigh carried by magical flying deer i think itll be easy enough to tell them two people are in love
I’ll never forget this summer…
STOP IT OMG MY HEARTSmall moments where you can tell a story with one picture. Such a cute couple ^_^
Ugh looking at them and I’m like what have I done with my life :(
I would like to be the owner of the green towel they are missing.
this is exactly how i feel, then i started thinking about it and i realized that people wouldnt even do it to raise awareness or anything. they wouldnt take it seriously, they’d just make a huge joke out of it.(via insulin-injectors)
uhm I’m jealous of the ALS ice bucket challenge and I feel like such a bad person because I agree that it needs support and awareness and those people need a chance.
But diabetes needs to be heard. It kills 73,000 people a year and hardly gets any donations. We need something and I just want the support in my life, but I make diabetes look too easy for anyone to notice anything. But I’m not making it look easy, I just don’t care anymore. I just need something. I need hope so when I tell someone diabetes, they don’t look at me with their eyes all glazed over. Because I’m done. And I don’t want the sympathy of people but I don’t want them to downplay diabetes just because they don’t have it deal with it like we do.
