It seems like NiceGuys™️ are disproportionately prone to that mistake. I wonder why.

Breasts are a reproductive organ by PunkieBooty in badwomensanatomy

[–]emmster 17 points18 points  (0 children)

And some men have breasts. Gynecomastia is probably more common than bearded women.

And yes, all secondary sex characteristics are used in mate selection, though a lot of where the focus lies is dependent on culture.

People who grew up middle/upper class, what did you not believe about low income households but it was actually true? by niamh_mc in AskReddit

[–]emmster 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Same with me and my husband. My idea of a bad month is not having money left in checking to move over into savings. Meanwhile, hitting zero was so normal for him for so long that he feels the need to spend money “before it’s gone.” It’s taken some time to get him to understand that if you just don’t spend it, it’ll still be there.

As someone who does love penis, I still don’t want to see a stranger’s.

Whoa boy, it's just your typical post-Christmas cat slaughter by MickJager in SubredditDrama

[–]emmster 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t think it’s considered normal, but it still happens now and then. A childhood friend of mine rescued a kitten from drowning in the 80s, and I’m sitting here right now with the lone survivor of a litter dumped in the woods.

Has anyone here gone under a breast reduction surgery? by ufoschaseme in bigboobproblems

[–]emmster 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Once I recovered from the anesthesia drowsiness, I was back on my feet. I took a week off, but probably could have gone back to work in 3-4 days. It felt bruised more than really painful.

The surgeon used a marker to show me where the incisions would be, and how the scars would look. The technique mine used keeps the nipple attached to its original blood supply and milk ducts, so it should preserve most of the function of the breast. (I don’t have children, so I haven’t tested them out that way, so to speak.) He did let me know that decreased supply was a possibility, and that if I were to try breastfeeding in the future, it was possible I’d need to supplement with formula. I found that acceptable. We talked about what volume he would remove, and roughly what size I would be left with. It ended up being about 3 liters, going from a G/H to a D/DD.

I didn’t have much swelling. I had a lot of bruising, and I did have a little tissue damage to the skin on one corner of the incision, so I have a scar about the size of a quarter in the fold below my left breast. It doesn’t show much. The rest healed without significant scarring. Of course, that depends on the person, and the best indicator is any previous scars you may have. It’ll be pretty similar.

I was able to shower and wear a soft bra after a few days, but still had to tuck some gauze into it over the incisions for a few weeks. I was back into normal bras within about six weeks, and back to working out and full activity in about 3 months.

The pain really isn’t bad. It’s more sore than anything, and hugging a pillow when you’re up pretty much relieves it. I was given pain medicine, but found that ibuprofen was really more effective, since it’s not an intense pain.

After I was healed, I found it much easier to exercise, find clothes that fit properly, and to be comfortable in bras than I did pre-op. I’m really satisfied with the results, and I would absolutely make the same choice if I had it to do over again. As a bonus, they now stay exactly where they’re supposed to be, even braless. They used to point straight at the floor when I took it off.

I did. About 18 years ago now. The technique has gotten a bit better since then from what I understand, but I’m happy to answer any questions you have about it.

Co-worker with a Supernatural necklace by twoob in Supernatural

[–]emmster 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That’s exactly the kind of thing one of those “Voodoo Shops” on Bourbon Street would peddle. It looks vaguely occult, and that’s good enough for half drunk tourists.

I grew up in NOLA. Those shops are just tourist traps. Nothing at all to do with historical Voodoo. So, yeah, I absolutely believe that somebody pretending to be a voodoo priestess did sell her the necklace.

Redditor in /r/PS4 becomes outraged the devs wished everyone a Happy Holidays rather than “utter the word Christmas” by MedievalMonkey in SubredditDrama

[–]emmster 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Christmas and New Year’s if nothing else. (Because technically, the new year begins during Christmas, but for some reason Protestants dropped the other 11 days.)

What should couples never do? by catharticarrest in AskReddit

[–]emmster 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’d go so far as “if you wouldn’t want them go see you doing it.” (Excepting modesty stuff like pooping, etc.) If you’re exchanging text messages you wouldn’t show your partner with an attractive coworker, or you’ve got some dating sites you haven’t deactivated yet, or something along those lines, rethink it. Anything you’re keeping secret you need to be super careful with.

White House finally admits Trump will benefit from tax bill by CommonsCarnival in politics

[–]emmster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Of course. Giving business a tax cut does not cause them to raise wages unless you make that a specific requirement. They’ll just pocket the extra money. How are they not getting that? Or maybe they just don’t actually care if their legislation has the effect they claim.

What "First World Problems" are actually serious issues that need serious attention? by Lytre in AskReddit

[–]emmster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One of the first things I did in my house (built in the 1940s, addition put on in the 1960s,) was get an electrician in to bring the whole thing up to code. Submitted the receipts to homeowner’s insurance, and the cut in premiums paid for the electrical work over just a couple of years. It’s still got some cosmetic work needed, but I’m pretty sure I’ll turn a profit if I sell.

Drama in r/zoomies when a user says that cats are smarter than dogs. "I'm right and you're wrong, dick-douche. I'll literally never stop, but you will." by Zachums in SubredditDrama

[–]emmster 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Two of my cats are assholes, though. The cranky old lady hates everyone, and the baby kitten just loves nothing more than making noise and knocking shit over.

Middle cat is a floofy snuggly sweetheart, though.
