Representation Matters: Doc McStuffins
As you know, I am such a fan of media representation for women in STEM, but I haven’t given fair credit to the amazing Doc McStuffins! I feel like I’ve been living under a rock, but this little girl is absolutely perfect. She’s the daughter of a doctor and takes the things she learns from her mom and applies them to her own practice, Her toy practice! She’s smart, curious and according to show creator Chris Nee, she’s also a “strong, assertive character who’s going places in life”. In one episode she was struggling with a diagnosis for one of her patients, but that didn’t get her down. “I won’t give up, until I figure it out!” she cried! She is just the role model pre-school kids deserve.
While she’s teaching kids about health and hygiene, she also making a huge impact. Doc McStuffins is a top rated-program for the 2-5 age group. Little boys and girls love her; merchandise of the show garnered more than $500 million in sales last year. I can’t go to a restaurant or a grocery store anymore without seeming some kid toting her doll around. She’s everywhere!
While she’s awesome and adorable, most importantly she’s a great role model for young girls, especially for girls of color. There is a disproportionately low number of women in STEM, but there’s an even less women of color in STEM fields. Women of color make up about 7% of employed scientists and only 1.9% of the nation’s doctors.
“It’s so powerful to show representation of somebody who’s not usually on TV”, show creator Chris Nee spoke of this importance in a recent interview with MSNBC. Representation matters. Women, especially young people, need to see themselves in the characters they see. It gives them to the chance to say “I could do that, I could be that”. Even Disney executives admit the power media has on the way people, especially kids, see the world. So for a character like Doc McStuffins, a little girl of color who is interested in STEM, to have all the force of the Disney brand behind her, is something to truly celebrate!  

I think Doc McStuffins is great.  My friend has a lil girl who’s just turned 3 and she loves Doc. When you visit, she checks your temperature, takes blood, puts a blood pressure cuff on you and pumps it up, checks your reflexes with a plastic hammer and then gives you an injection to make it all better. She’s already told her parents that she’s going to university. She broke her clavicle and dealt with the hospital so well because they compared it to things that happened in Doc McStuffins. Not only have Disney found a great way to get kids interested in science, it’s helping them cope with hospital situations.

"If I told you you had a sexy body, would you hold it against me?" "Walk along the beaches. Can I squeeze your peaches? Would you like some cream?" *grabs crotch*

Just file that under things I never want patients to say to me again.

Started my 14 hour night shift with a free coffee and a boy asking if I wanted to hold his hamster. Ended it with having to catch a 14 (maybe more?) stone person when they fainted in the OPG machine and very nearly took me down with them. Throw in a couple of tripod fractures and it was a pretty interesting night!

yes children, remember, there is only School. no rest. what does “physical and mental wellbeing” mean

what the actual fuck
what is this fixation with productivity holy shit
"No fellow citizen #45465, you may not sit down for a break, you must meet your labour quota for this hour or you will forfeit your productivity ”bonus” pay. Produce and consume, Fellow Citizens!”

But what if you’re tired and need a nap? Surely it’s productive to give your body what it needs!

You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment.  People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously.  Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life.  Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day!  So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!!  Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions.  Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it.  With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!

We are right here!!

remember that once in the late 70’s a face character for pooh at disneyland was accused of hitting a child in the face on accident and so the dude came back to court after the recess in the pooh costume and answering the questions as pooh and fucking danced in the courtroom in order to prove that the arms were too high up to hit the kid and he was acquitted within 20 minutes

That’s some Phoenix Wright shit right there, I swear
