Assassination, Birthday, and Children: under-the-arch: autumnhobbit: General Charles De Gaulle is well known throughout modern history as the leader of the Free French Forces. What is not as well known is that his youngest daughter Anne (January 1, 1928 - February 6, 1948) had Down syndrome. Although public perception of the time was that children born with Down syndrome were a result of their parents alcoholism, venereal disease or overall degeneracy, the De Gaulles rejected this notion, choosing instead to raise Anne like their other two children. Their personal life became very private and Anne was raised at home, not in an institution (as was common practice at the time). Charles and Anne on holiday in Brittany, 1933It has been said often that Anne was Charles’ favorite child. Described as a man who ranged from cocky to stoic by nature, he was a different person around Anne, reportedly describing her as “My joy”. He is said to have read stories and sang songs to her and showed an affection that he rarely showed others, even those in his own household. Anne was raised to feel no less or different than anyone else. After the war, Charles and his wife Yvonne founded the Fondation Anne de Gaulle, a home for disabled girls, many of which had intellectual impairments. In 1948, Anne succumbed to pneumonia, a month after her 20th birthday and died in her father’s arms. Upon her death, he is said to have remarked “Maintenant, elle est comme les autres.” (“Now, she is like the others.”). He carried a portrait of Anne with him at all times; he claimed that her portrait saved his life by stopping a bullet in an assassination attempt in 1962. When Charles died, he was buried beside his beloved Anne. (Via Facebook.)  oh no im crying

Pretty sure it was the Plague, childbirth, food spoiling, maltreated infections, smallpox, pneumonia, and/or generally unsanitary living conditions (such as dumping sewage and waste in the streets) and not health conditions caused by excess body fat. Not to mention that the Renaissance standard of female beauty being plumpness and full-figured forms came from the fact that it was a status symbol. Plump, pale, full-figured women were wealthy women who didn’t have to spend their days in hard labor or raising children (or both) and stood a better chance of bearing healthy babies than commoner women did. Cultural “Oh Snap” I hate it so much when people pull out the “unhealthy” excuse for having a reason to body shame a person. “Women died young in the 1700s because they were fat” is an amazingly ignorant statement Okay that one response was dumb but first of all there’s absolutely no way the woman in that painting is 190-200 lbs unless she’s on the taller side. Yeah Renaissance women were full-figured but they weren’t obese.Secondly, it was a beauty standard because it was a sign you were rich enough to eat a lot and not have to work off the extra calories. So it wasn’t that women typically looked like that, it was an equally unrealistic standard back then as it is today because most women didn’t have the means to put on extra weight unless they were filthy rich. But hey let’s glorify beauty standards when it personally benefits you, right?Third, you’re really gonna put someone down for body-shaming when the woman painting is also body-shaming? Anorexia is a mental disorder not a body type and if you conflate the two you’re body-shaming. Using “anorexic” as a synonym for “skinny” is basically the same as using “diabetic” as a synonym for “fat.”So in conclusion, this whole post is garbage. It’s like when they try to label Marilyn Monroe and other of her contemporaries as “plus size”. Just stop. She was curvy yes, but she was absolutely not anything approaching the modern concept of “plus sized“ or obese.One of these things is not like the other

Bigfoot, Fucking, and Google: 11:39 PM points 23 hours ago I believe you can't find one reputable source to support your claim. I have linked the Wikipedia article about the disease as well as a BBC article You. Have. Produced. Nothing So, whos the troll? DONE HIDE ROOT PARENT : 2 points 22 hours ago You've produced a link to a BBC article that says a woman claims she has Aquagenic Urtecaria so severe that she'll die if she drinks a cup of water, but she lives on Diet Coke 1) Aquagenic urtecaria is a skin condition. It is not fatal. It does not produce anaphylaxis, and calling it an allergy is a misnomer, because it is not caused by any of the physiological processes that cause allergic reactions. They don't even know what causes it 2) Diet Coke is more than 90% water. Orange Juice is almost 90% water. Whole milk is almost 90% water. Every lungful of air she breathes is about 4% water. Every bite of foud she sticks in her gob has water in it Her own shit is 75% water. Her blood plasma is an aqueous solution that is 92% water, 8% plasma proteins, and trace amounts of minerals. You can find all of this information for yourself on Google. You cannot be allergic to water. If you believe this woman's claims, which have mostly been covered by The Dail Mail and equally reputable sources, then you're a damn fool. You probably also believe in Bat Boy, Bigfoot, and the Loch Ness Monster, all of which have been covered by the BBC Either way, I don't care if you want to be willfully stupid, and it isn't my job to fix you, ya fucking troll Redditor calls out medical hoax.
