If you take a young man and woman and they both tell a stranger that they work in the same restaurant, it’s very likely that they will assume that the woman is the waitress, and the young man a cook.
But I thought a woman’s place was in the kitchen? Not when she’s being paid for it. I can’t believe it took me this long to realize the implication of this. A woman’s place is one of servitude.
this fucking hit me like a fucking train

I want to hug you.
Come and get your huuuugs
Seriously. Proud of you and stuff. Can I get in on the hug?
Of course you can. I love hugs. I’ll just try not to squeeze too hard.
why it is important in the hypothetical treatment of Australian Indigenous people to examine lay understandings and community perspectives of health and illness???????????????????????
I hope this makes sense (I’ve had almost no sleep for like 5 days).
In the treatment of Indigenous Australians and communities the care provider needs to examine the Indigenous peoples understanding of health and illness so that they are able to not only provide care, but all communicate the need for care, the prevention of illness and the treatment of illness.
Along with the prospect of possible miscommunication, care providers need to acknowledge that different cultural beliefs and practices, coupled with various levels of comprehension can make treatment difficult.
By examining what they understand or know about health and illness, care providers can adapt their practices to accommodate the Indigenous community and work more effectively with them.
This might help (I know… another article. But it talks about communication within the ATSI health community)
