Not many people know the stereotypical heart shape was meant to be two hearts fused together

Hey there. History nerd here… not many people know this “fact” because it’s not true. The universal heart shape we recognize today has nothing to do with the heart, actually. It has to do with early Roman birth control.The Romans used a plant called silphium to prevent pregnancy. It was so effective that it became a critical part of Rome’s economy and daily life. It was literally so important to their culture that the image of it’s seed were even imprinted on currency. It’s the exact shape of the heart we know today, and this is the first time it’s visage was ever recorded in history. It was so important to them, and so highly prized that they actually drove the plant into extinction by over harvesting it for use. This shape was so ingrained in their society’s conscious as a symbol of sexual liberation that it became associated with all aspects of intimacy, eg. sex, unity, and love.TL;DR: It’s not two hearts sewn together. It’s an ancient plant that Romans used to have gratuitous amounts of sex before condoms were around.

how romantic

"I have a tilted uterus and during my last pregnancy, I lost 6 liters of blood. I almost died. I can’t have this baby. Why don’t they understand that?"

Weeping client talking to me today.  They tried to goad her companion into a fist fight so they could call the police and have him arrested, therefore she couldn’t have the procedure.

She was crying and screaming for them to leave her alone.  They wouldn’t, and her companion got angry.

I told her that I have no idea why they can’t understand it.  My guess is, that they don’t care about you or your partner, only the fetus that could kill you.

She was very upset, so I let her and her companion wait in my car.  She thanked me and said “I’m glad you are here.  He would have hit that guy if you all had not walked with us”.

She walked into the clinic tear free, but still with anti’s trailing behind her shouting.  The escort presence gave her space and a buffer from the harassment.

That is why I escort.  That is why I do it.

d’you think the avengers ever play a game where they try to push steve’s buttons and get him all riled up and patriotic?

tony casually throws it into a conversation like “oh yeah I don’t vote” and steve trails off mid-sentence and gapes for a second before he starts in on…
