2023.03.30 07:17 sugar-soad I refused to move seats on a plane to help out a pregnant woman, and it may have been one of the worst decisions in my life

I arrived at the gate a few minutes late and was relieved to see that it was still open. The gate agent ushered me through, and I hurried onto the plane.
I quickly made my way to my booked seat. I knew it was going to be a long flight, so I had booked an aisle seat with plenty of leg room.
There was a woman sitting in the window seat who barely even registered my presence as I sat down and stretched out my aching body.
I placed my earphones in and ignored the stewardesses give their emergency instructions as I had seen it numerous times in the past.
The plane had barely been in the air five minutes when I felt someone top me on the shoulder. I turned to face the woman sitting beside me, who was glaring at me.
She demanded that I switch seats with her husband so they could sit together. She pointed at a man who was sitting in a middle seat surrounded by two obese men.
I politely declined as I liked my seat and didn't want to be stuck between two people for the next seven hours. She began yelling at me that she was pregnant and needed her husband beside her to help keep her calm.
It was pretty obvious that she was lying as her stomach was flat as a pancake. I told her that I booked my seat, and her lack of forward planning wasn't my responsibility.
I placed my earphones in to drown out her complaining and actually managed to doze off.
I was awoken a short time later by an elbow to the side. I turned to confront her, and my mouth widened in shock.
Her belly had swelled up, and I could see something moving around inside. She gave me a pleading look before collapsing onto the floor.
One of the stewardesses rushed forward to help her as I sat there in disbelief. I heard a scream behind me, and I looked back to see her husband had ripped out his own throat. He sat bolt upright in his chair with a huge smile on his face. His two seat mates were trying to open their seat belts to get away from him.
My attention was drawn back to the pregnant woman who began yelling that her babies were coming. She opened her mouth, and a deluge of black water began spraying out and instantly drenched the stewardess who was trying to help her. The water petered out, leaving the plane utterly silent as everyone was too shocked to react.
I jumped from my seat as hundreds of white worms about the size of your finger began crawling out of the woman's mouth and onto the floor.
The stewardess was sitting on the floor, and the worms converged on her. She barely had time to react before they began climbing into all of her orifices.
She began writhing on the floor for a few seconds before standing up and smiling at all of us. I began backing away from her as something about her smile gave me the creeps.
Her smile widened, and I watched transfixed as she approached a nearby man and planted a kiss on his mouth. I initially thought she was slipping him the tongue before realising to my revulsion that the worms were slithering from one person to the next.
The man shook for a few moments before starting to smile. Chaos ensued as the other passengers tried to flee. I saw a number of people unintentionally get too close and be given the kiss of death.
I moved to the far end of the plane and watched from behind a curtain as the infected began hunting down the others.
I had to turn away in disgust as one of the infected located a baby that had been forgotten about by its parents.
I began hammering away at the cockpit door and begging them to let me in. The door was flung open, and I backed away as a gun was shoved into my face.
One of the crew started lecturing me about having me arrested when we arrived. His words slowly ebbed as he looked past me at what was unfolding with the other passengers.
I pushed past him into the safety of the cockpit. He was about to follow when he was dragged away screaming.
I slammed the door shut with my heart pounding in my chest. I almost peed myself when a hand wrenched me around, and I stared into the eyes of the terrified captain.
I carefully explained what was going on as the other passengers tried to force their way inside. We both sat there silently afterwards, trying to come to terms with what was happening.
I took the co-pilot's seat as we continued our flight. Exhaustion overcame me, and I once again drifted off to sleep.
I awoke with a shriek as a nightmare that I could no longer remember jolted me awake. I turned to the pilot to ask him how much longer until we landed.
I shrunk away from him as he turned to me with a wide smile, as I could see the worms moving between his teeth.
I hopped up and saw a small hole at the bottom of the door with worms still swarming inside. They began moving towards me, and I smashed my foot down, crushing them beneath my weight.
The pilot began letting out a wail that forced me to cover my ears. He raised his arm and pointed at me as I backed away until my shoulders hit the door.
I wrenched it open and slammed it in his face as he advanced towards me. His wailing was partly muffled by the door as I stood there trying not to panic.
I heard footsteps behind me, and I turned to face the person with a giant smile on my face. A girl no older than ten walked by me with worms moving around inside her eyeballs.
She barely registered my presence as she swayed from side to side.
I once peeked out around the curtains to see most of the other passengers had retaken their seats.
A sea of smiling faces were looking towards me, and it took every fibre of my being to keep smiling back at them.
I took a couple of deep breaths before walking down the aisle. Every head followed my movements as I tried to decide what to do.
I spotted the bathroom ahead and began pacing towards it. I felt something squishy beneath my feet and looked down to see the body of the baby from earlier.
His stomach looked like something had crawled out of it as his ribs were pushed upwards. I let out an involuntary sob and heard the unmistakable sounds of every head spinning in my direction.
I lunged towards the bathroom as hands shot out to grab onto me. I managed to shake them off before rushing inside and sealing the door behind me.
I started wetting the toilet paper and lining the sides of the door to keep out the worms. I know it might not be enough to keep them out, but it is all I can think of.
I hear a noise above me and almost start laughing as the pilot has hit the fasten seat belt sign. I now sit here trapped in the toilet and wondering what will happen if and when we land.

2023.03.30 07:17 indreamsforevermore Men are so infuriating especially polymen.

I fell in love with a polyamorous guy and I'm starting to think it's the worst thing I could have ever done. He's the only person I've ever wanted to spend my entire life with the one person I could be happy with and not need anybody else ever. But I will never be the only one. Plus this man's lack of communication is very frustrating. You will be speaking to him and no word of a lie he will give one, two, or mabye three words as a response.
Sometimes youll even get lucky and get a sentence. On top of that he takes quite a long time in between messages to respond even when he's free. I also feel like the only times he talks to me is when he's in the bathtub, when he goes with his fiance to her boyfriend's house, sometimes when he's at work on breaks or lunch, and sometimes on the bus going home. I also don't have his number and we don't video chat since i live 8 hours away.
Which leaves us to talking over Snapchat and not being able to have full long conversations. Plus when you do talk you will ask him things and he will often not know what to say. It's only when you question the fact that he doesn't know what to say that he will then give kind of an answer. But its very short like 1 sentence.
Also I will try often to tell him things that nobody else has ever said to him before that make him feel special. Very romantic things and this man again will not know what the hell to say. Or when you ask him has anyone ever said that to you before? He'll say his fiance has but not in those exact words she used different words.
Which is honest but at the same time it makes me feel like there's nothing I could say or do that she hasn't already said or done you know? So what's the point of someone getting into a poly relationship with him other than the sex? Which he and I do not do because I do not want sex whatsoever plus how far i live away.
He also told me that our emotional connection is so strong and amazing because of that (no sex) and in a different way then what he has with his fiance. But I'm not going to lie it really hurts knowing that I'll always be second in his life and that everything I say she's already said but differently.
So if he's trying to form a relationship with me how's it going to work with this little of communication. On top of that we were talking earlier while he was at work and he was barley saying anything. I wrote him this big massive 26 page write up about how I felt about him using Samsung Notes. Sent it to him via Snapchat he read it and said he had no words.
But he did send me a bitmoji of him kissing my cheek and that was it. He said sorry was at work and not having a good day. Then told me later on he'd give me a deeper response. Which I know he's not going to do because he always says he'll do things like message me later respond better later and never does.
So I just thought to myself okay I know it's not going to happen but not going to worry about it because I'm used to it by now. Then I responded with is there anything I can do to make it better sorry to hear. What's something your heart needs right now. I will go to the ends of the Earth and back to make your bad day the best is ever been.
Well this man then took 4 hours and 9 minutes to respond and all he had to say was awwww just hearing that helps. Now I don't know why but I literally read it as if he was patting me on the head telling me that. Like that's just the first thing my brain thought of when I read it out loud. I know it probably wasn't meant that way but it's as if he was talking to a kid and patting them on the head you know like aw thanks kiddo.
I mean I don't know how this man can be Poly with anyone when his communication is this poor. Not only that but when you try to talk to him about the whole poly thing and discuss stuff. He pretty much just says we'll see where things go or again he doesn't have an answer and doesn't know what the hell to say. And last but certainly not least he was talking about me his fiance her boyfriend and him all moving in together one day.
But then said If someone else ever comes along another female he would speak to both of us me and fiance about her joining the relationship. Now I haven't said yes to being in a relationship with him yet were taking things slow and everything I mentioned above lack of communication no phone number no video chats it makes it super hard. I mean you can't form a connection with somebody even though he said we did with this little to go off of.

2023.03.30 07:16 mjayultra Stranger keeps trying to befriend my very not interested puppy

Last week, during one of our morning walks, I saw a woman in the distance and a minute later, I hear a voice behind me: “What’s your dog’s name?” It’s her and I don’t know where she came from. Whatever; I answer and she coos at Warren. He immediately starts growling (not abnormal- he does this often, especially around men). I quickly explain that he’s wary around strangers and move to walk away. She was not happy about this and begins sort of following us. Dog begins barking like crazy. She’s protesting and trying to convince him to…I don’t know…love her? She says, “I would never hurt you, Warren” in this creepy way that immediately made me think of the witch from Hansel and Gretel. We walk away and that’s that. But the same thing happens the next morning, barking and all. Yesterday, in a completely different section of the neighborhood, she spots us and crosses the street. Warren, at this point, wants to tear this lady apart, but she can’t stop walking toward us with her stupid baby voice, even though he looks and sounds like a freaking hellhound. (Side note: He usually does not go this nuts. He might growl, but I’ll distract him, and we can get moving again very quickly.) Now, I know he’s cute. But he’s also really strong (and I’m recovering from a thrown-out back) and it’s probably pretty obvious that I’m not having a ton of fun wrestling him away. I know I don’t owe her anything, but she has me a little stumped (and creeped out? Am I being dramatic?) How do I politely tell her to fuck off? P.S. Feel free to use this thread to vent about your own strangedog experiences!

2023.03.30 07:16 booze_and_sadness I'm breaking

I have been diagnosed with so much shit but I don't want to be medicated again. I was diagnosed with ADHD, executive disfunction disorder, and bipolar 1 (Manic depression) all by time I was 13. My parents had me so medicated I never felt like myself. I don't want to live my life feeling like a zombie hut I'm so sock and tired of having panic attacks because my bed is to big!?
I've been in the U.S Army for 6 years and I love my job (in the combat arms can DM for more info), however it's been a detrement to my physical and mental health. My tenitius is so bad I can hardly sleep some nights.
I finally hot the breaking point tonight. I felt like I was drowning in my own bed. I told my wife I was going to sleep on the couch and she understood. I couldn't blink for 15 minutes at least. She had to give me eye drops twice to help me even close my eyes.
So many shitty memories blew through my head at once and I can feel my body lock up when they do.
Am I alone in these feelings? Does anyone else feel like a dying spider when they lay down and the lights go out?

2023.03.30 07:15 Traditional_Driver_9 Will my surgeon tell my parents about my tattoo?

I (19F) have to get surgery done on my nose soon. I have a tattoo on my ribcage that I didn’t tell my parents about and was planning on not revealing until a couple years from now. One of my parents will be going to the surgery with me and I’m afraid the surgeon will say something about the tattoo if he sees it (not sure why he would but idk). Should I be worried about it? Will he need to have access to my body below the neck (other than resuscitation but at that point I’d hope my parents would care more ab my life than the tattoo)?

2023.03.30 07:15 think-out-loud Could I get some feedback on this 5 point framework for beginners to QA and Software Testing.

Someone challenged me to come up with a 5 point framework for QA. When I was learning all of the steps in the process some of them sounded similar and I would get them mixed up. (Analysis & Design, Implementation & Execution, etc)
I need to make it a little more skimmable for sure. Thanks in advance if anyone glances at the article.

2023.03.30 07:15 Holiday-Ability-260 How would u deal with this cheapskate?

I went out on 2 dates with this guy and noticed his cheap ass ways. During the time between these 2 dates and after the last date, he's been trying to persuade me to either come over or me going over to watch movies and talk which I declined. And he mentioned how he's a homebody and wants to stay home sometimes and also not have to go out to waste so much money. (Mind u it didn't cost much at all for the 2 dates), also I hardly know this dude and told him I'm not comfy yet. So now he made up some bullshit story about how he had some big bills come up and straight up asked that I treat him for the next date. I know it's BS because he has mentioned things he was planning to buy that was very expensive so he for sure isn't broke. And by the way, at this point since I noticed his fakeness, cheapness and possibly a fuckboy, which turned me off so I'm not interested anyway. So now my question is how should I react:
  1. Ghost him
  2. Be like him, act fake and do the slow fade

2023.03.30 07:15 KingWussy28 I need some help with finding good and proper equipment for a small off-grid solar setup.

I am planning on buying equipment for a very small, off-grid solar panel system. I will be getting a 12volt, 30 watt solar panel that comes with a PWM controller (unknown amperage rating) and wiring.(Getting it free from Temu, which is why I am planning) (1pc 12 Volt Solar Panel Solar Trickle Charger Portable Solar Battery Charger Maintainer With Lighter Plug Alligator Clip - Patio, Lawn & Garden - Temu) (Not a referral link. Only a link to the aforementioned product)
I know that I need a battery (to store power) (estimated 6 peak sun hours) and a power inverter (to convert to 120 volts) but I am still confused as to what exactly to buy. Due to budget constraints and safety concerns, I chose a 12volt, 15Ah lithium battery ( Amazon.com: OGRPHY 12V 15Ah LiFePO4 Battery, 192Wh Grade A Cells Lithium Battery with BMS, Up to 5000+ Deep Cycles Battery for Fish Finder, Kids Scooter, Security System : Automotive) and a 200 watt 12V to 120V power inverter (Amazon.com: 200W Car Power Inverter 12V DC to 110V AC Converter with 3.1 A Dual USB Quick Car Charger Adapter : Automotive). I am not sure if this battery or even the inverter is okay for solar panel operation, so please help me with this (kind of guessing at this point). Genuinely confused with all the amps, watts, and volt conversions, and also power loss calculations.
I don't plan on using high wattage equipment, mostly my laptop charger, and phone charger. Maybe my power banks (20,000mAh for portable phone charging) too. (No desktop computer, screen monitor, hair dryer, space heater, fridge, freezer, or microwave).
This is equipment planning. Solar panel placement isn't really one of my concerns right now, but help with the angles (solar panel tilt) and the wiring is much appreciated.
Please help, and thanks again!🥦🌴🌵

2023.03.30 07:15 wishdroplet Are vibrating strings the intersections of spinning spheres ?

Hello,
We're wondering whether the Calabi-Yau spaces of string theory could possibly reduce to a single sphere of a very large number of dimensions, as outlined in this longer post we wrote:
https://wishdrops.substack.com/p/can-50-years-of-string-theory-be
Please don't mistake it for a scientific paper :) It's written very much in common prose, and much of it is guesses at best due to insufficient knowledge. Here is an excerpt of the introduction:
We’ve spent a lot of time assuming the latent form of the universe is a small, spinning sphere; that all particles and all points in the supposed vacuum of space share a common center; that high school math is all that is needed to relate basic physics to the sensory frequencies of color and note; that the golden ratio pervades all; and also that — here is the key — this “sphere theory” has duality with string theory.
This last point we understand only superfluously, but we tend to imagine a dedicated string enthusiast would intrinsically. In other words, we suspect a string theorist would easily recognize sphere theory in string theory, but we know the reverse is not true. We’d like to test this, but how ?
One way would be to become a string theorist. We can try, but it doesn’t seem very efficient, and we’ll never carry as much knowledge as thousands of others already do, not to mention sustaining this superposition is lonely and exhausting ! Is the sphere real or not already ? Maybe this will someday be our thesis to defend, but that sounds like so much work !
Another way is to find a string theorist. So how do we do that ? Quora ? Reddit ? Are there any string enthusiasts out there who would like to take a shot at explaining why this would or wouldn’t be possible, or whether there is or isn’t anything new here ? We’d really appreciate that.

Well this man then took 4 hours and 9 minutes to respond and all he had to say was awwww just hearing that helps. Now I don't know why but I literally read it as if he was patting me on the head telling me that. Like that's just the first thing my brain thought of when I read it out loud. I know it probably wasn't meant that way but it's as if he was talking to a kid and patting them on the head you know like aw thanks kiddo.
I mean I don't know how this man can be Poly with anyone when his communication is this poor. Not only that but when you try to talk to him about the whole poly thing and discuss stuff. He pretty much just says we'll see where things go or again he doesn't have an answer and doesn't know what the hell to say. And last but certainly not least he was talking about me his fiance her boyfriend and him all moving in together one day.
But then said If someone else ever comes along another female he would speak to both of us me and fiance about her joining the relationship. Now I haven't said yes to being in a relationship with him yet were taking things slow and everything I mentioned above lack of communication no phone number no video chats it makes it super hard. I mean you can't form a connection with somebody even though he said we did with this little to go off of.
Also if he's going to be bringing more people into this relationship on top of just me and his fiance if I decide to join. I can see things becoming a disaster because of how little he communicates with me. So what's it going to be like with a third woman in the mix plus he works a lot so there's that too. I just honestly don't think either of them him and his fiance knew what the they were getting into or really thought this through just my thoughts though.
Because the day before yesterday he had taken a mental health day off work and went with his fiance to her boyfriend's house. While they were there she gave him two Edibles because she takes them for medical reasons and he was higher than a kite when he was talking to me. He was upstairs she was downstairs and he was telling me I hope she's doing him (her bf).
Because he said something about her being afraid of losing her connection I think it was or closeness with her fiance my guy friend if that made sense. So what I'm taking from that is she's scared to get close to the boyfriend because of that just my interpretation though. Which I get but at the same time if you're so worried about that why bother doing this whole poly thing.
Unless you just make it about the sex so that you never have to worry about losing your strong connection with your partner. But again just my two cents. And the only thing I'm concerned with really is me and anybody else they try to bring into the relationship because I feel like we're going to get hurt. Especially if they're trying to hold on to their connection with each other to keep it strong and then not wanting to get to close to us because of it. But those are just my thoughts what are yours? Is this a good situation to get into?

2023.03.30 07:15 Ninth3Planet3 Dday was Valentine’s Day.

Dday was my birthday, which is also Valentine’s Day.
I’m going to apologize in advance if this is long winded and hard to follow.
So for reference my husband (39m) and I (39f) have been together since high school. We both experimented with other people with an on again off again type of relationship until we had our first child nearly 13 years ago. We were married shortly after and have for a better or worse have had somewhat of a trauma filled relationship with lots of ups and downs. A few years after our second child was born we opened up our marriage and both had a partner we were regularly seeing. Sex was amazing for us during that time and it really brought us so much closer. It was short lived however since boundaries were crossed and we made the decision to renew our vows and focus on a monogamous marriage.
Fast forward to becoming pregnant with our third child less than a year after closing our relationship. Yes, I admit that our sex life dwindled as I have very rough pregnancy’s. It was almost non existent after the baby was born as well because I was so self conscious about myself.
In 2020 I took the initive to get healthy again. I lost weight and was the smallest I had ever been in my adult life. Size 8 at 5’7 for reference My husband told me I had lost to much weight and that my hands looks frail. I was shocked, hurt as I had worked so hard to achieve this goal. We were not having sex at all during this time and he would leave and turn off his location frequently especially after an argument.
Well life happened, I gained most of the weight back and he commented that I was getting too big again. Sex was still very few and far between during the past couple years.
This January there was a spark however. He was affectionate and showing interest in me like he used to. I was taken aback by it since I was so used to just living with him at this point. In hindsight I probably should have been more affectionate back. He made plans for my birthday for a romantic dinner and really made the whole day special for me.
Then it happened. I don’t know what told me to look at his phone but I did. The first messages on his phone were from another woman and they were very flirtatious. With her saying that he is sexy and he said that he liked her in bed.
Things blew up. He told me it was because he was getting attention from her and not me. He told me he would end it. I believed him and we have been trying to reconsile alhough i was very guarded.
I thought things were going better. I was making an effort to be more intimate with him. 2 days ago we had some of the best sex we have had in years. I was feeling a real connection.
Something told me to look at his watch. I wish I didn't now because I found messages to another woman. They were sending pictures back and forth. Talking sexually. I am so beyond hurt.
He try’s to downplay everything. He won’t be truthful. He says he just liked the attention.
So I am trying to give him that attention. I text him sexy things the past couple days but get one worded reply’s or that he will talk to me in person. That never happens.
I just don’t know what to do to give him the attention that he craves. He won’t tell me what he needs. I brought up divorce or an open relationship again and he says he doesn’t want either. He just wants to be with me.
I just so confused. Any advice is welcome.

2023.03.30 07:15 ThrowRA_NotNoOne My (29M) girlfriend (33F) of 8 months sort of cheated on me and I willing to move forward, but don’t know if my “demand” is reasonable.

Hello. So about a month ago, my girlfriend and I got in a huge fight and hadn't seen each other for a few weeks. I messed up, by doing something out of character. Not hurting her or cheating on her. Just something that she understandably got mad about.
We were supposed to go on a trip to Canada together with some of her acquaintances. but since the fight, I didn’t feel right going and got my flights refunded.
I texted her I feel like we may be done, and wish we could work things out if she was willing to.
At first she said she may be willing to talk about it. But then she changed her mind a few days before the trip. I asked if she can’t spare 1 hour of her time, should I consider us done. She said, “oh yes” since I’m making it an ultimatum. I said I didn’t mean to, that I just wanted to know if we’re still together or not because of someone who lives in the area of Canada she is visiting and I was worried. Left on read and it was somewhat ambiguous.
This someone was someone she had sexted before we met, but I’ve heard from people that she spoke to about him with. They told me that she seemed really into him and that she always talked about how sexy and cool he was. One time she even cried to me about him, because she realized he used her for validation.
Anyway, she still kept in touch when we dated and I never liked the relationship she had with him, even if it was over text. I felt like she kept in touch with him because she still wanted him even though it would have been long distance.
I would also state that we hadn't had sex since the first time. So her talking to someone who was in another country bothered me because she was (in one way or another) sexually involved with him, but never felt that way towards me. I felt like she was emotionally invested in him more than me, and felt like second choice.
When I brought up my concerns with the relationship, she dismissed my feelings and called me jealous and insecure. Controlling when I asked to limit contact because I sensed that she was probably still into him.
Anyway, in the middle of her trip she called me and started talking about how lonely she was and how she is not enjoying it as much as she would like. She said she got her closure she needed with the guy, and thought she would've never been able to get that if I went. That she feels like she has nothing to come back home to because she is single. I felt bad and didn't want her to feel this way, but I told her I was here for her and never wanted to break up; that I considered us together still.
We met when she got back, and it was like nothing changed. She was okay with being in a relationship with me, and wasn’t even mad about the thing I had done. She was more understanding about it this time.
A week later, I spoke with the friends and apparently she slept with the guy of concern. It happened the night of when they landed. THen she met up with him again the night before they left.
I brought it up to her and she lied initially, saying they only talked. But I told her I am not stupid and know she is lying. She started to cry and had a full blown panic attack. Of course I had to compartmentalize my feelings and tried to console her.
I set up a date to officially talk about things on Friday. I want to talk about things now, but I also want some last good memories before whatever happens happens. By that I mean, Last laughs or whatever.
If I do take her back and decide to stay, we have things that need to be worked on. However, unlike before, I don’t think I can be okay with her being friends with him anymore. So would it be acceptable of me to demand she not talk to guy of concern anymore and cut him off?
I know she may not take it well, but if she says no then I know I was always second choice and never a priority. However, I always thought asking someone to cut someone off was controlling and unreasonable.

2023.03.30 07:15 OhMyMe17 BIGGEST GAME OF THE SEASON ON FRIDAY: Lakers vs Wolves

Wolves have a ridiculously easy schedule after the Lakers.
This essentially means that if the Lakers lose on Friday, 7th seed will be out of reach, let alone 6th seed. With both teams at 38 losses, this is the biggest game of the season for the Lakers. More than any other game in the past.
It's annoying and repetitive at this point to say this, but it's more true than ever: BIGGEST MUST WIN game right here. No exceptions. Get it done.

2023.03.30 07:14 Gaping_Maw Google listing suspended for not meeting quality guidelines.

Self employed, sole income earner for my family (2 kids.).
Business registered since 2017, 5 star rating. Associated website with same name, service based no physical location (address hidden). Council approved home business. Been listed with Google for 6 years.
Suddenly my profile has been suspended.
Have studied guidelines and meet them all.
Have attempted to have rectify via support but was told it does not comply, no reason given.
After hours of research only things I can think of 2 things:
  1. I have another profile for a separate entity at the same address with the same phone number, now updated to have a different number.
  2. My registered business name has my city name in it.
Have posted on the community forum yesterday but no reply as of yet.
Could the points above be the issue? There simply cannot be anything else based on the guidelines.
Have let support know but haven't heard back since initial reply 48hrs ago.
Do they follow up? Worries its automated and they don't actually read the emails!

2023.03.30 07:13 thatrabbitgirl Conservatives have me convinced they are okay with pedophiles as long as women do it.

I find it interesting how many women, like IDK, Brittany Spears, can dance around talking about sex in their songs and people hardly bat an eye. Yet suddenly a man does a Britney Spears impersonation and lip syncs to her music and everyone flips out.
Oh sure, when I was a kid, one of my older sisters did talk to me privately about how my liking of the spice girls might be in appropriate for my age because of their sex appeal (and at 9 years old, I had no idea what she was talking about) but at no point did she ever refer to any of them as groomers. That said, she was literally THE only one who ever talked to me about it. Everyone else saw no problem with a 9 year old girl looking at women in sexy outfits singing along to "If you want to my lover"
Also never heard of Dolly Parton being called a groomer and she also reads to kids in libraries. I don't think anyone could argue her outfits aren't sexy.
These anti-lgbt nut jobs have me half way convinced they are okay with pedophiles as long as it's women doing it. I mean, they claim that they always speak out against sexual abuse towards children right? So why is it only sexual abuse when men do it? Why are they also largely silent on drag kings?
(For clarity drag queens are usually men, not trans women. I understand that trans women are women but drag performance is about women impersonation, not being a woman. Which is why I am referring to them as men in my rant)

2023.03.30 07:13 FaithinFuture Is Phil Labonte the most insufferable person in Metalcore?

I ask this question to the community after recently having the misfortune of being recommended his Twitter profile and now Twitter won't stop recommending me his ignorant as fuck takes. The dude is so passionate about being a bigot but won't take the time to vet his sources or engage in any conversation in good faith. At this point, I'm starting to just think he's just a masterful troll cause if not, he has got to be the most insufferable person in metalcore.

2023.03.30 07:13 prettylikeadevill my mom goes to great lengths to make sure i stay socially isolated i hate it

she took away my phone my laptop my ipad. if i want to contact my friends i have to use her phone. im not allowed to use social media. im not allowed to hang out with them either. it was one my closest friends birthday last saturday. i begged her to let me go. her excuse? itll ruin your orientation towards studies like what the hell does that even mean. i didnt study for a week leading up to it. she doesnt have a problem with that but what she does have a problem is with seeing me happy. its suffocating . i barely go out anyways. i have almost no friends because i dont show up to things. its my last year of high school and i thought maybe she'd be more understanding. she told me ill only be allowed to go to my farewell. my school life is coming to an end and i have made basically no memories with these people. at some point they just stop inviting you to stuff because they know you wont show up. it hurt so much. and my mother has the audacity to ask me why im closed off. if it s a family event i have to be there but if its a friends thing im not allowed. im so done man im so fucking done. why do they do this

2023.03.30 07:13 TaquitosLoquitos My friend's wife used to have sex with me and his entire friend group before meeting him. I'm embarrassed my friend married her & has kids

I love my friend Robert (fake name), but I'm absolutely embarrassed by him. In my eyes, he's a loser & an idiot for being with his wife. They're both 27 and have twin daughters that are 4 years old. He's happy! And that's great, but me & all his friend's had her first. Before meeting my friend Robert, his wife (we'll call her sally) was having sex with his entire friend group. It was me and 2 others guys that Robert knew. We all met her in college, she made college fun & took our virginities. Each of us had different classes with her, that's how me & Robert's other friends knew her. That's how they all had sex with her, because everyone had some sort of class with her during the day. Now obviously we didn't have sex with her at the same time, it was all separate occasions - but still, we all had our way with her.
Sally was just some blonde haired, blue eyed, freckled face chick with huge boobs we hanged out with because she was hot & hilarious. She was those chick's that wore denim, loved anime & came from a farmeranch family. She'll follow us around always, maybe she thought we were cool or something, so we got her involved in our friend group. She shared her hobbies, always got us invovled in her activities & was super fun to hang out with.
Sally was an awesome girl! So silly, hilarious, sweet & was the nicest person you can ever meet. She was an angel, so goofy & loved being adventurous. But unfortunately, I still just saw her as a chick I can have sex with.
Only reason we all know sally slept with the friend group, Is because me & Robert's other 2 friends brought it up. We realized the 3 of us were all at some point intimate with her, because we all had classes with her. We were all shocked, because we didn't know sally slept with the 3 of us. I thought I was the lucky one that only slept with her, but turns out Robert's other friend's were lucky too. We all lost our virginities to this girl, which was crazy. In our eyes, we thought she was easy & slutty so we wanted to continue seeing her.
Sally had a serious conversation with me & my 2 other friends when we introduced her to Robert. She fell in love with him, actually dated him in a serious way, didn't have sex with him quickly (which is funny) and the two of them became a couple. She was honest with him about her past with us, he didn't care & only cared about the future they'll have together. Sally asked that we respect her relationship with Robert and that everything we did together in college stay in the past. She said she's past all that stuff & wants something serious and special in her life: that being Robert. She wanted to move on with Robert, have a family with him and get married. She was insanely in love with him. She wanted something "real" and I guess Robert gave that to her.
That's exactly what they are now, they're married and still crazy for each other. She's a teacher, he own a restaurant & they have twin daughters. I don't care if I sound bad, but I'm embarrassed for Robert. His wife used to be a slut, now she's acting like nothing happened. We all did things with her, it's annoying she's acting like we didn't. She has that "I'm a wife & mother now" type of attitude, she's supposedly "matured". They're always going on vacations/traveling with their kids and I just cringe at the photos.
So yes, I'm embarrassed for Robert. There's definitely people out there that are also embarrassed for him, because they know how slutty sally was. But whatever, if he's happy & she's happy, then I guess that's fine. He's enjoying sloppy seconds & a girl that's used up completely.
I already know there's gonna be comments saying, "but women can enjoy sex too!" And "it's none of your business who she has sex with". That's true, but you're all hilarious for wanting to say that. It's just reddit defending women like always.
I don't care if she's a mom now, she's a slut in my eyes.
