I mean, there’s a case to be made even on the issue of homelessness. There are a lot more women and children’s shelters than men’s homes or things like that. We typically have a more protective* view of women and children

I mean, more women are beat up by their husbands than men are beat up by their wives, which is clearly the reason for more women's shelters. But sure, let's just continue this Reddit meme that society is so much kinder to women if it makes you feel better.

That’s actually not true. The most common initiator of domestic abuse are women. But sure, let’s continue this Feminist meme that women don’t initiate domestic abuse because it makes your privileged ass feel better.

Why do you say "initiation" instead of commenting who actually is more often abusive?

Except when the girl in pink looks down her top like he just snatched her bra off or something.... makes me think some or all of these are staged.

see more

She probably keeps her phone in her bra. The thing that made it looked staged to me was the girl on the opposite side of the table immediately started looking in her bag. Why? She was on the other side of the table. That looked super fake.

Was probably checking that her phone and keys and whatever were sttill in there and hadnt fallen out or been left on the table or something

Like, I get the concept, but it looked fake. She didn't look surprised, or alarmed, or so "her what was that"? Just calmly starts checking her bag.

I've come to accept that I will never willingly loose weight. But after seeing my older brother and sister loose horrific amounts of weight as a result of illness, I've now decided that I'm keeping my old clothes so I'll have stuff that will fit me when I'm sick.

It's lose by the way, not loose. Loose is what your clothes become when you lose weight.

If he wants to go with someone else to the wedding in case OP can't go he should wait until he knows with certainty that OP can't go to find someone else?

Yes. He doesn't NEED to bring someone. Isn't it more rude to the other chick to ask her to the wedding and then back out once OP says she can come?

"Women have become less and less happy since they entered the work force" is clearly worded to heavily imply that joining the work force is the cause. You're being dishonest if you say otherwise. You could said "some studies have shown that women are less happy these days", but you planted the link there, and now are getting defensive when people are following the link your clearly set up.

Comment deleted16 days ago

Well you did? Can you clarify the point you were making there if that wasn't it?

This is a video about, what, women in the work force? No? And your comment said that women have been less happy since they've been in the work force? And now you're saying "I never said they're unhappy because they're in the work force". So, um, what was the original point you were trying to make then exactly? If it wasn't that women are less happy because of working, then what exactly was it? Women happen to be less happy and that doesn't have to do with the topic of this post?

It's not unusual to cover your ellbow too, to stay with that example.

I think we're miscommunicating here. As far as I got it, you said just wiping your ass instead of washing is not disgusting because you don't touch food with it. Ii chose a body part you also don't prepare food with to show you that just wiping off shit from that bodypart instead of washing would indeed be considered disgusting, which was kinda OPs point. I'm not saying I desinfect my whole body every few minutes or something, I dunno where you got that from. I love dogs, I'm from the countryside and I played in shit for probably 15 years or something.

An elbow is much more likely to come in direct contact with a food preparation surface than an asshole is. I think thats pretty clear, no?

Even genetic twins would have different money in the bank, but that deviation IS beyond our testing. As they would look the same. Only way to tell apart is if one has a genetic flaw or evolution/deviation the other didn't get.

It's not beyond our testing, but they would need to have their whole genome sequenced, which is not what companies like 23andme do.

Super annuation seems more similar to social security than a 401K (although we cant manage our social security)

401K is in addition to social security

see more

I don't think so. Sounds like the Australian pension is equivalent to American social security (that is money you get when you're old and have no income, as a form of welfare, it's a set amount that everyone can get), and Australian super is equivalent to 401k (it's money that comes from your salary and is then invested, you get out what you put in), only difference being super in Australia is compulsory,

Not only the confidence, but the energy.

"Oh, so you already knew about how [go into purposely verbose technical details]? If so why do you think [more purposely verbose technical details] is so obvious?", then continue to press her on specific details to drive home the fact that she doesn't know shit.

I have done this kind of thing, and it's exhausting. Especially if it carries on all day. And er, for six months even?

All of the pseudo-inspirational songs are really bothersome. "Fight Song" is the worst offender but there have been some others from artists I really like otherwise but just come off as pandering positivity ("Roar" and "Scars to your Beautiful" are others that come to mind).

I really appreciated Kesha's "Praying" though, it felt genuine and described her own experiences while also being easy for others to identify with.

see more

Yes, I wanted to say this! All these "I'm so tough", "I'm a warrior", "I don't need you boy" songs, are so tired. And they are exclusively sung by women: I realised when "Fight Song" came out, how silly it would sound if a guy sang a song like that, "I'm so strong, I'm a survivor". It's like some weird feminist thing, but I think it comes from a place of assuming girls are weaker, so in the end isn't it kind of anti-feminist? I don't know, maybe I'm overthinking it.

I have been saying this for the longest time. Which is sad considering it was uniquely pretty at first but now I have trouble discerning between artists

I've been waiting for this 'voice trend' to die for at least 10 years I'm sure, but it just seems to have gone more mainstream in that time. So glad I'm not the only one bugged by it. In 20-30 years we're gonna look back and think wtf was that wierd voice everyone did.

I'm glad someone said this. A shot of vodka might have 100 calories of energy in it (tested by burning) but your body can't actually process and store it. Your liver filters a lot of it and when your liver can't process the excess it goes directly into your blood stream making you drunk. Eventually it's all filtered and whatever doesn't decay naturally is expelled through urine. Your body is not capable of converting alcohol to energy let alone store it.

Edit: I'm getting downvoted here and a lot of people are making good points about the chemical process that takes place during metabolization of alcohol but nobody is actually saying how much of the energy in alcohol can be absorbed and used/stored by the body. Just because something has energy in it, doesn't mean that your body can use it. When you say "alcohol breaks down into X and that has X amount of energy" it means nothing. Also, nobody has actually stated the amount of energy it takes to metabolize alcohol to begin with. There are plenty of foods that are calorie negative because they're so difficult to break down.

This is actually the thing that pisses me of about nutrition. The method used for testing the energy in a food is not representative of how one's body actually breaks down and metabolizes it.

This is wrong, your body does metabolize alcohol. This can lead to weight gain which is exactly the question that started this thread.

Just an anecdote here, but in all the chemistry schools I've worked in, graduates and PhD students have been about 50/50 female:male, but professors are overwhelmingly male. The last department I was in there was one female professors out of 50! If women are just not interested in these fields, why are they studying and doing PhDs in it? Clearly reddit is opposed to any kind of affirmative action, but do you just accept that this is the way that it should be, and there are definately not any unique obstacles for women that are preventing them from getting to higher levels within certain fields?

Ask again in 20-30 years, when those current PhD students are now the tenured professors, and see how the demographics have changed.

With something like this, you can't just strike once and be done. In order to have qualified women to put into tenured professor positions, you need to have women in the field. So you get women interested in the field, and then naturally it progresses such that the tenured professors end up reflecting the new demographics. If you try to go in and fire half the men and then replace them with women professors who don't yet exist, you're doomed to fail.

see more

You would think that, but that hasn't been the case in the last 30 years. When I went through undergrad 15 years ago I saw that women in my graduating class, and the total lack of women lecturers, and I thought, well we're going to change that! Well it hasn't happened. Women are dropping out throughout the career process, and there's lots of reasons for it, but it's not simply a generational thing that will be gone in 20 years. I can look up numbers if you don't believe me.

after reading a lot of your comments it doesn't look like you are really looking for help but affirmation that you are right and he is wrong. You have made up your mind about things and are looking for a specific way to approach them.

but seriously unless you are not doing that and your comments are communicating that then its no wonder your 7 year old is manipulative.

you are trying to manipulate him.

she learned from you.

You need to take a hard long look at how you view people. It isn't enough to treat them well you have to understand and have empathy and quite frankly it comes across as if you don't have any. If I was the guy in this situation knowing from what you have told us about how you view him and approach topics and the way you have approached this I would break up with you.

For that reason I love doing "Angels" by Robbie Williams. Always gets everyone singing and is just a good time. What songs are best may depend on where you are (what country), but something very popular and easy to sing along to is a great idea if you don't want your singing to stand out, or just have fun with it.

This just reminded me, I used to live in Germany and this song is huge there. At Oktoberfest one year this was the ONE song people went crazy for the most, on a night of mainly german songs. It was crazy.

Yes, they were religious. Kid was in the hospital about 3 weeks before dying in the ICU. Course was prolonged bc kid was so unstable on admit and we needed to “fix” some things prior to them being a surgical candidate. Sadly, as the kid improved the parents’ thoughts on medical intervention changed: initially they had been somewhat receptive, but they turned to outright hostile by the end. We didn’t have time to get the court order to overrule them before the kid coded and died

What was the parent's reaction when the child passed? Shocked or angry or guilty?
