QT_3.14159: It must be a pretty scary world you live in when you'd rather think you had cancer than admit you'd had sex.


With cancer you get sympathy.
With sex you get called a slut and shamed.

Lights please!
 
ahem.
 
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
 
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the a city in Florida, a tumor, which Christ the Lord you need to check out because it is really quite mind-blowing.
 
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the tumor wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and forwarding the link to their Aunt Millie, who is into offball medical horror stories for some reason, saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace and goodwill towards men.
 
And that's what Fark.com is all about Charlie Brown.

QT_3.14159: When I was pregnant the doctor came in shaking her head because a 12 yr old she was treating had just gotten an ultrasound to take a closer look at the tumor they were worried she had and it was a five month fetus. The 12 yr old had sworn up and down she had never had sex. It must be a pretty scary world you live in when you'd rather think you had cancer than admit you'd had sex.


Well, there's a pretty damned good chance she's protecting a rapey step-dad, and the terrible slut shaming she's going to get is from her mom. Given a choice between "cancer" and "my step dad was raping me so my mom threw me out on the street and told me to never come home again and now I'm a homeless 12 year old girl with a kid", I'm guessing most people would take cancer.

Nice mother. Instead taking her to the doctor right away she decided to put the kid through a slut shaming.

Yanno... doctors can perform pregnancy tests too ya dumb bint. And if she thought she WAS pregnant wouldn't it be prudent to get some STD tests done as well? Sooooper geeeenius.

I also would have been worried the kid had been raped. Yeah those doctors... they do rape tests as well.

When the Daily Mail is looking for pictures for a story do they just raid Facebook accounts? Because these sure don't look like the photos I would hand over if I was in a story. I'd be handing over a copy of the kid's school picture, and some nice family shots, not "here is a picture I took of myself and my cleavage."

brantgoose: Fun fact: a woman needs something like an extra 115 Calories a day to make a baby. That's a handful of Oreo cookies, regular. Strange but true.


Yes, 8 pounds of babby would produce something on the order of 30k dietary calories if you burned it, but you certainly couldn't build one on a budget of 115 dietary calories a day. 

A woman needs that many calories available as building materials just to assemble the babby, but she needs them at a rate that varies geometrically throughout the pregnancy because the absolute rate of babby growth increases with babby's size. She also needs a lot of calories to assemble that energy into babby parts, to run the babby's own moving parts, to compensate for metabolic inefficiencies, and for the extra energy needed to haul around all the additional mass. Plus all the non-caloric bits that make up a babby, which also come from food and require their own energy to metabolize and build into babby parts.

ohokyeah: The mother should lose custody of her kids for the negligence. Repeated pregnancy tests that turn up negative but with odd symptoms should have still spurred a visit to the doctor well before the tumor got that large.

Repeated pregnancy tests are not a replacement for making sure your kid gets the appropriate health care...also if the kid had been pregnant, why wasn't she interested in making sure that the potential fetus was as healthy as possible given her daughter's age? She should have taken her to the doctor as soon as there was any suspicion of something being off, whether it was a tumor or pregnancy. After that first or second negative pregnancy test would have been about the appropriate time.


She probably didn't have insurance.

Clemkadidlefark: My hand to God, when I was working my ay through college as a surgical tech, I scrubbed for a exploratory laparotomy that ended up being the removal of a 99 pound ovarian cyst.

Hmm. When was that? I remember a Fark thread a few years back about something similar. But I seem to recall that cyst only being 86 pounds.

/Woman weighed 400 pounds.
//The cyst kept her from losing weight.
//I imagine she's doing a hell of a lot better now.

here to help: Yeah... sorry, Mycroft. I don't participate in angry little troll games anymore. You know full well what I was talking about. If the chick thought her 12 yo kid was pregnant she should have brought her to a doctor immediately. You know that. I know that. Anyone with the tiniest bit of common sense knows that. In fact at 12 yo the freaking cops should have been involved if sexual contact had been determined.

Be gone, ye olde derp farmer.


The only thing more dangerous than a self righteous and judgmental person is a self righteous and judgmental idiot. Should she have taken her to a doctor, yes...in fact she did. Did she think she was pregnant, no, because the tests kept coming up negative. Once the symptoms couldn't be explained anymore, she acted. Could she have done so earlier, maybe, we don't know what the kid looked like, we don't know anything about the situation.

Making the point that she could have involved a doctor earlier is one thing. Making the point by invoking non-existant tests to look for injuries that would have long since healed (and doing it in a most condescending and self righteous way) just brands you for the fool that you are.

One interesting thing to note-you keep saying that the police should be involved if sexual contact was determined. What sexual contact are you referencing? The sexual contact that the child denied, or the sexual contact that the pregnancy test was unable to substantiate?

here to help: MycroftHolmes: What, precisely, is a rape test?

If you are referring to a rape kit, it would probably too late to do one of those if pregnancy was showing.

You know what I meant and on a 12 year old there is a good chance they could still check for scarring and other indicators. Hell, a trained psychologist could likely get a young victim to disclose if anything had happened better then derpity doo mumsie.

But way to exclude every other bleeding point I made to get your snark on. Good jerb.


My point was to point out the ignorance displayed in your very self righteous diatribe. There is no such thing as a rape test. There is no way to physically determine if someone is raped. There is physical examination that can be done to determine if their are injuries or conditions consistent with forcible sex (but normal, consensual sex can also produce similar bruising). Even then, all physical evidence of any sexual assault would have been long, long gone by the time pregnancy started showing.

You are trying very hard to denigrate the actions of the mother as being incorrect. But if the pregnancy tests were negative, what reason would she have to have her child checked for STD's or speak to a rape councilor or psychiatrist?

If you want to be judgmental and self righteous, that is your prerogative. It would be best, though, if your self righteousness was supported by even a modicum of fact or a sprinkling of critical thought.

No shiat...not the worst part of the story, but I would be pretty skeeved out to hear my doctor relating info about other patients.

Taking names and kicking ass! You go, girlfriend!

Seeing as she started to "show" during the summer and that thing reached 19 pounds only a couple or three months later, I'd say that was one heck of a bouncing baby fetus. One for the record books. I wonder what would have happened if nobody did any pregnancy tests and she had carried the tumor to term?

Would it be bigger than she is? She looks like she's under 100 pounds.

Fun fact: a woman needs something like an extra 115 Calories a day to make a baby. That's a handful of Oreo cookies, regular. Strange but true.

That tumor equals very roughly 40,000 Calories (possibly more if it has a lot of fat), while a baby would take a bit more than 30,000 Calories. But, of course, little girls wouldn't think like that, so who knew?

"Janet Roberts, pictured, said she was shocked to learn that her daughter's classmates were teasing the 12-year-old about her growing stomach"

Why shocked, Janet? If anything you should have been shocked if they treated it as if it were no big deal.
