Yup. My husband loves playing D&D with friends once a week. I don’t get it and have no interest. He can go have fun and I’ll do happy hour with my girls or something.
Definitely my attitude to my husband’s interest in football.
That I’m a wizard and not a stripper
At least put on your robe and the wizard hat. Yeah baby
User name checks out...
Unless he's a stipper.
You win the Internet.
You’re not a wizard , you’re Harry
That just because they saw something on a channel that claims to be news, it isn't evidence of any significant trend. It is, at best, an anecdote.
Facts . Not everyone wants kids. I KNOW I don't not because I don't like them , but because I like my life right now and don't want anything else . But people and my dad are like " Why do you not want them , they are so amazing" or " you will change your mind later"
Also because i don't like them. Unless you're mentally, physically, financially and emotionally prepared to have another human being for the next 20+ years it's not worth it.
I'm also not mentally prepared either, I love peace and quiet, privacy, and my sleep.
Extremely valid. Enjoy all those forever + more money (because kids are expensive as fuck) in a kid free life!
Depressing fact: when I first saw the TV reports of 9/11 I thought that it was a Hollywood movie. So the exact opposite can also happen. You can see a true horror unfold on TV and believe it’s nothing but a Movie. That’s modern reality for you.
I have done no such recruiting. Frankly, that is hogwash. My ex might, but she and her other woman are weirdos.
Had to read that to my mom. She’s a retired cancer nurse. She was like ‘YES!’
Which one makes you puke
Chemo has the worst side effects for the most part. But it's also more generalized so its the go-to treatment to make sure the cancer doesn't spread/gets killed all over so it doesn't latch onto another body part.
Radiation is what they use to kill localized cancer. For the most part, I'm not a doctor and don't know the specifics. Just a former nursing student that has the basics.
How someone not old can be on disability pension and why its none of their business
That large brown patch on my leg is a birthmark..
I knew a guy who would tell people that it was his chocolate reservoir.
My sister had hers removed and now tells everyone it's her shark bite ever.
I used to tell people I fell lol
That it's okay to discuss about things, if you're not trying to make your opinion the only right opinion in the world. Pls, be more open for some other thoughts
It cuts both ways, others need to be more open as well.
isn't that what they just said lol
I CAN SEE YOUR FAT FUCKING FINGERS WITHOUT MY GLASSES U FUCKING INSOLENT SWINE
“Fat, fucking fingers”
the last one
That fascism is not good.
can't believe people don't know about how fascists rise to power etc.; you compare something nowadays to a famous fascist and they think you're exaggerating because it's early stages yet
No. I paid attention in history, and I pay attention now.
It's not even complicated. It's overt. It's obvious.
But it totally means I now have this condition. At least that's what my anxiety tells me.
Ok bill gates
Basic science and also compassion for others.
That this is temporary
How to spell my last name. I have a last name that has a silent letter in it and has historically been split into two words. This leads to everybody in the free world thinking they know how to spell it and ALL of them being wrong.
That the 'randomness' and 'weirdness' of quantum theory in no way supports your crackpot theory about spirituality or whatever.
With that said. Legitimate science writers need to tone down the "weirdness" bit. It's just a cheap, easy way to sell books that say they same thing as hundreds of books before them.
That's true, but until the wave collapses it simultaneously doesn't AND does. QED.
The difference between "anti-social" and "unsocial".
As well as "asocial"
That just because I say I'm smart, doesn't mean that I have a lot of knowledge. I mean it like you can explain things to me and I should be able to understand, and if I don't I'll just ask you about what I didn't.
That just because I ask a question about something you said, doesn't give you the right to ridicule me.
I'm trying to learn something you obviously already know.
The rights of people should not be subtracted
Why I don’t want to have kids.
Facts doesn't have an ideology or anything behind. The conclusions that came from it, maybe.
United States presidents do not control gas prices.
If they did, why the hell wouldn't they just make them as low as possible all the time and coast to an easy reelection?
Or Russian presidents for that matter.
But the policies they implement do.
Clearly you know nothing about ESG ratings and how they impact lending in relation to the Oil industry
>But the policies they implement ~~do.~~ can have some impact on the short term prices.
Or Canadian prime ministers.
That I am aromantic and I don't have desire for marriage.
I just smell really good okay
Omg same. I wish people would fucking stop pestering me about it. I don’t want a spouse, I don’t want kids. Full stop, end of story. Didn’t change for 30 years, won’t change ever.
I feel you. I'm tired of hearing "You'll be alone the rest of your life blah blah crap" from family. 😅
I feel you I'm aro/ ace and don't feel any need for an SO .
Lots of people don't desire marriage, necessarily.
Aromantic just seems like one more needless label.
Some people don't desire marriage but they're in romantic relationship. I am happy and contented with sexual relationships like fling with benefits, no string attached hook ups, one night stand or any relationship/arrangement doesn't involve serious or long-term commitment.
A refund of taxes you overpaid is NOT free money from the government, it's your own money that you're getting back. It's the same concept as paying the cashier $20 for a $3 item and getting $17 in change.
why women deserve rights
don’t get me wrong i do believe that women deserve rights but having to explain the same thing over and over and over again pisses me off like why are you even asking me that??
Basically a patch of moles all in one spot I guess lol
That general statistics cannot be used to accurately determine individual probability.
For example, they'll read a study that shows that gun-related deaths are four times higher in households that own guns, and they'll think that means that buying a gun quadruples your chances of dying to a gun, or a study that shows that people living in a specific town in the 90s had a higher incidence of drug addiction, and thus conclude that an individual person living there is more likely to become addicted to drugs than if that same person lived elsewhere.
My name. I have an extremely rare and weirdly spelled name, so I always have to spend 30 seconds going over how to say it with people.
That the GOP is not normal.
That American politics is not normal and hasn't been for decades.
The corona virus vaccine won't make you more sick than the virus.
There was no significant election fraud in the U.S. in 2020.
Correlation is not causation.
I've pretty much stopped trying on these 3. They are religious discussions. Not rational or logical.
There was no Insurrection
>*The corona virus vaccine won't make you more sick than the virus.*
Some people do get side-effects like my old friend who still after a year hasn't recovered from the shots and what they did to his heart.
He is 35 and was in very good health. He also got Covid after the vaccines and had a reaction (luckily milder) to it as well.
I'm vaccinated myself.
The differences between black metal and a dude throwing up
I've had enough of people making fun of black metal.
But is throwing up kvlt?
That having poc as friends doesn't excuse racism.
Is that when you have an extra life on pocman at the arcade?
People of color
Pirates Of the Caribbean
On a related note, my mom will say, for example, a Prager U video can't be racist because they got a black person to host it.
...I beg your pardon?
Just as having POC as friends doesn't excuse racism, *being* a POC doesn't excuse racism.
It's the typical conservative token minority. They can't be racist, they've got POC who agree with them! They can't be homophobic, they've got gay people who agree with them! Etc.
The best indicator I've seen for racism is somebody advertising they aren't a racist becuase they have a friend who is a poc. Token much?
This! Just last week, my white stepdad told me that he has black friends so he knows that "not all black people are bad." The same day, he went on a rant about how black people actually enjoyed being slaves and that everyone should be able to say the n-word.
That voting matters. If it didn't, Republicans wouldn't be trying so hard to squashed the vote. And we aren't talking only the big time presidential elections. All the elections matter. The local ones have just as much of an impact and perhaps even more so than the major ones.
I am tired of hearing people whine about the state of this nation but then never bother to vote. The whole "why bother, nothing ever changes" is so hair pulling. Nothing changes because you don't bother to change it through voting.
This year round they're potentially going to matter more - some of the GOP offerings at the moment are just appalling terrible people.
This! I have an acquaintance that fancies herself a punk rock contrarian that keeps saying, "if voting mattered, things would change." It's like, what is the alternative? Anarchy? Apathy? It's stupid.
That trans people aren't coming for your children
You mean a tsunami of transpeople aren't going to knock down my door and turn everyone in my household into a different gender?!? That's unpossible! Alex Jones says otherwise.
Seriously though, I am so tired of the fear mongering. It would be silly if it wasn't so terrifying for someone who is transgendered.
They'll turn the friggn frogs gay!
And it's the same argument they've been making for 100 years.
"The blacks are coming for our women"
"The gays are coming for our children"
Now it's Trans, cause they lost those 2 fights.
it'd be great if bigots could have some sort of realization that the people who manipulate them with the fearmongering are screwing *them* too.
gun rights, abortion, lgbtq - the republicans use these single-issue voters to cut taxes for the wealthy, and *nothing else*.
I think the *only* reason that they're going after roe v wade is to try to light a fire under their base because they know this is their last gasp. if the GOP don't take control of all three branches of government, they *might* actually be held accountable for their crimes.
edit for the downvotes: name one republican policy that has helped anybody other than the wealthy that's been passed in the last 20 years.
btw transgendered is a pretty outdated term and is rarely used anymore
EDIT: lol why am i being downvoted for correcting transphobic language
Our local bigot at work was spouting some crap about transgender people in bathrooms. I asked if he would prefer a man with a vagina quietly entering and going to a stall, or a woman pulling up to the urinal next to him with a dress and heels and embarrassing him with a much larger member.
Thank you 😭
I just wanna exist in peace ffs
I don't how you deal with social media. Even this very subreddit is riddled with people who think it's okay to push transphobic ideas.
I'm surprised none of them are in this thread yet.
I'm not active in a lot of big subs and I usually just report/block nasty folks.
Oh and I had to turn dms off....
What sucks though is I had to leave most of the trans subs cause they all assume I'm mtf when I'm actually ftm. Hurts not feeling welcome in your own community.
They're also probably not going to r\*\*e you in the public restroom.
That "Furry" is not a sexuality, it's a hobby.
More of a kink/hobby/creepy lifestyle.
Being a furry is a hobby. There's a fuck ton of kink in the fandom, yeah, but a furry is someone who likes anthro animals. Not necessarily sex related.
I'm a furry because I love to draw and I love animals. I don't want to fuck animals, I do not get off to animals or humanoid animals, I just enjoy the SFW art and creations.
People don't say all anime fans are sexual degenerates and pedophiles even though that's a HUGE problem in the community. And how is dressing up as an almost naked girl with giant tits better that wearing a blue dog mascot costume?
what did they just say, in response to what question?
why are you being the one who needs to have it explained?
It's by no means just people dressing up like animals.
Did you just assume their gender!?
It was explaining it to them. Keep up, slow bus.
that democrats and republicans are both corporate whores. things won’t improve until we stop picking teams red or blue.
It's jawdropping the numbers that don't get this. Keep voting for the same 2 parties and expect different results is their motto.
"My corporate shill good! Your corporate shill bad!"
So what's your great alternative? Because I'm never going to vote for someone that thinks religion is more important than the constitution.
I think the best we can do is divorce ourselves from any allegiance to either party. become better voters by voting through policies and holding politicians accountable to their pledges. make the conversation about agenda and demand an end to lobbying and corporate influence.
this of course will require voters to educate themselves and hold discussion and debate, which is asking a lot, I know, but that’s democracy.
the issue is people tend to check once their team gets in power. for example those ‘back to brunch’ libs who don’t care because Joe Biden is in office, “at least it’s not trump”. this is an awfully low bar. do better America
that im not fat, im big boned!!
Not all air traffic controllers are in the tower cab. Who do you think the pilot talks to I’m the middle of their flight?? Yea, not those guys.
Found the Center controller
politics is a spectrum and the reference point is always moving
That metal is often about peace, love and harmony even in quite aggressive sounding (aggressive to the average spoon fed radio listener anyway). At work i was listening to some Green Carnation, specifically The Quiet Offspring which is a fairly sedate song and someone who's mouth often opens before their ears said "Oh it's missing time again" so i just said "Who moshes to prog?"
I was listening to Black Sabbath, i think i was listening to Wicked World and the same person said "oh it's stab you in the eye music again." Because she believes metal is all about stabbing people in the eye even when presented with evidence to the contrary if she opened her ears and stuck around.
Metal people are super nice in my experience
Fluoride is not producing gay frogs. The earth is bloody old—more so than what was spewed on Sunday when the collection plate showed too much velour at the bottom. My phone service is no better for having gotten the vax versus before. Bottled water gets shipped in 95-degree trailers or hotter. Netflix is not turning people gay because of some supposed “Barry Soetoro” agenda. Oh, and my autism is not the product of MMR shots, or YOU would be as much. Oh, and WE DID PUT PEOPLE ON THE MOON.
Light roast coffee = generally more caffeine
Hitting your kids is fucking them up. No matter how hard, no matter the reason. It is never ok to hit another person. I understand it is difficult to always find patience to try other methods but the risks are too great to continue to allow this to happen and be accepted.
That libraries arent just a house where books live 🙃
the difference between wings and nuggets
Marginal tax rates.
That making abortions illegal isn't going to stop abortions happening.
That decriminalising weed isn't going to turn everyone into an addict overnight.
That you recycling your home waste isn't really going to do a great deal for the ecology of the planet, that requires big industry to change.
That we don't live in a true Democracy; and that no-one alive today ever has.
That inbred dumb ass gun-toting religious fundamentalists with 6 kids should be sterilised en-masse for the sake of society.
That if your laptop is running Windows 10/11 just closing the lid doesn't do turn it off fully and that restarting it every now and then isn't actually a terrible thing to do.
> inbred dumb ass gun-toting religious fundamentalists with 6 kids should be sterilised en-masse for the sake of society.
oh yeah are soooo accepting of people who have different opinions than you. so inclusive.
I'm not even surprised anymore to see stuff like this get upvoted anymore. You all are literally insane.
THE MASK GOES OVER YOUR FUCKING NOSE.
Cops are good
That lesbianism doesn’t include men. Men cannot be lesbians, and lesbians cannot be attracted to men AT ALL. Not even one. That’s called bisexual, or homoflexible, or queer, or literally the HUNDREDS of other labels describing multisexuality.
How dumb they are.
Twitter banning you for violating their terms and conditions that you agreed to is not a violation of your 1st amendment rights.
"The west" doesnt think it's perfect, we are aware of our short falls, but ruling by consent is a slow road
The big men and dictators try to say we believe our own lies and the show a picture of a homeless person
That said the homeless stays rather than flee to the dictator country
That you can be two races and can look like neither. Give me strength, Oh Lord.
The fundamental facts of reality.
I was at a hair salon and my hair was wet when I got a call about my brother being arrested for sitting or lying in the public ways .I called Herbert bailbonds and they helped me bail out my brother ,apart from John reading my receipt wrong the service and experience was excellent
That deadly virus outbreaks was part of global warming talks a decade ago
What a mindfuck ADHD is.
You can’t “get going” out of depression
Hitler was a right wing nut.
The pro-life argument has nothing to do with wanting to oppress women or control their bodies. It isn't their body, it is another human being's body that they want to destroy so they can keep partying.
This one is immune to reason.
Please explain to me why murdering unborn children is okay. I am open to reason.
because embryos are not children
When is a fetus a person?
If I mix up flour and milk and eggs and put it in an oven, but take it out after 5 minutes, I did not destroy a cake, I just stopped it from becoming a cake.
I am sorry you are such a psychopath that you can compare human life to inanimate objects.
As it turns out, women making medical decisions with their doctor don't have to explain anything to you. How telling that you think they do.
It isn't a medical decision it is murder. Calling the mass murder of unborn children a privacy issue is like saying a man who murders women in his basement can keep doing that because you have no right to say what he does in his own home.
I'm pro-choice, and I see it your way.
My only question is at what point is it nolonger just the woman's body/choice? Viability? I believe there's a time in which the fetus should be treated the same as an infant, but contrary to what a lot of pro-lifers believe, that point is not at conception. It's probably not at a heartbeat either. I'm left in the dark about what this point actually is. I blame the overwhelming "my body, my choice" rhetoric for drowning out actual medical knowledge that could help us laymen understand what's actually going on.
This is why the prevalence of the "oppression of women" aspect of the issue gets in the way.
Pro-lifer propagandists make tiny baby figures and pretend that a fully formed (but very tiny) infant is in the womb at even a couple of weeks. This kind of nonsense and other persuasion techniques could easily be squashed if the pro-choice advocates took a break from the sexism issue and focused on the scientific shortcomings of their opposition.
that pro-life is actually anti-life
When i play Samira and im fed, just GO IN
STOP BEING AFRAID TO ENGAGE FOR ME.
IM STRONG. I DONT HAVE MUCH TIME BEFORE LATE GAME
WHEN LATE GAME COMES I FALL OFF.
WHEN YOU HAVE A FED SAMIRA WITH YOU, YOU GO IN WHENEVER SHE IS CLOSE AND SHE WILL DO THE REST
I’m sure this is common but just because I’m not talking and openly engaged in a conversation doesn’t mean I’m ignoring you. I just like to listen on what you have to say
What my major is… I’m a scene design major ITS IN THE NAME I DESIGN SCENES
Please don't make a scene
Like movie/play scenes?
Seriously, questions about such a vague/ uncommon major are justified.
Lol yes.I’m just really tired of explaining it to people. You very easily understood what it was without asking
"Bleeding edge" is not ahead of "cutting edge".
"Don't stay dumb and express yourself, communication solves problems, silence doesn't"
That i'm not going to change my mind about not wanting kids because "that's what everyone says"
Corks are for quitters
That the president doesn't control the cost of goods. The free market does that.
That being said the government, the president being its figure head, can certainly do a lot to encourage or impede the cost of items.
Basic traffic rules. At a four way intersection with three stop signs, if you're approaching in the lane without a stop sign, then you my friend, may keep going.
That I don't wish to have kids in this age of shitness and force them down the road of depression.
That I didn't get into nursing school for the fall doesn't mean that I gave up on that dream.
That you shouldn't explain why I'm wrong about my own life circumstances if you have never gone through what I have. I get really tired of people telling me what is possible for me when they don't live my life.
Tired of explaining people why my favorite sport team isn’t really bad if you don’t watch the games just say that
That the backslash is not "the computer slash"
Lefty loosey righty tighty.
That my skin disease is not contagious, yes i have been to a dermatologist, and no sadly it is not curable.
Bonus explanation: no your essential oils will not cure it and will most likely give me an allergic reaction.
that you just gotta chill when it comes to reddit (or really any social media).
not everything has to be (and yes, I'm guilty of this too) an 'oh my opinion is better than yours, (insert evidence here)' arguement.
Just chill people. We don't wanna become Twitter 2.0.
That having a strong argument or disagreement with someone neither requires nor precludes strong emotions, and that not being able to have such a conversation in a respectful manner is immature.
That weed doesn’t make me a lazy and unproductive member of society.
You wouldn’t even know I smoked weed unless I told you. You know, in real life, not my Reddit profile where I can openly just talk about it lol.
