1. Let's use the correct terminology! They are healthcare clinics, not abortion mills. 😇

  2. I mean, you have to ask "why" when there are no apparent political or moral connections that would make it make sense, like there is for hunting, anime, or smoking cannabis.

  3. So basically, he made a meme of 20 different girls in his school and branded them all "feminists" because they won't sleep with him. How fucking cringe.

  4. Because the capitalists in charge here are afraid this could happen to them. Therefore, it doesn't make the news.

  5. My husband and I enjoy our DINK (dual income, no kids) lifestyle. We have never wanted children. Our home is a clean, quiet retreat from the rest of the world. We don't have to worry about balancing being parents and lovers. We have more money to spend on things we enjoy. So yeah, we definitely are thriving without children.

  6. Anyone know what effect it will have on fetus that would otherwise be aborted?

  7. Banning abortions doesn't stop abortions. It just ends safe abortions from being performed in anti-abortion states. There will still be women who can afford to travel to clinics in states where these medical procedures are legal. There will still be women who will gain access to abortion pills via the mail service. There will be women who can't afford either option and will try home remedies. Most of them will fail. And so, the women who are unable to access abortion care will face grim choices.

  8. I agree. No idea where this narrative about the amazing life office workers have and that it is some kind of magical golden middle class nirvana.

  9. Have you ever worked for a company like Wal-Mart? Or maybe a fast food chain? Or had a stint in healthcare? Perhaps even a manual labor position? When you hold these types of jobs, it's easy to desire a cubicle career with a 9-5 schedule.

  10. Yeah, I was an infantry grunt for ten years, deployed twice, worked washing dishes from aged 14-16, fast food until graduating high school.

  11. My point is that low paid workers may perceive an office job as desirable because it pays better, is less physically demanding, and has a consistent schedule. And I didn't need a soap box to form that opinion. I just used my brain and this great thing called empathy.

  12. I think you should report this guy to the FBI. He's bragging about being a serial child rapist!

  13. The overturning of Roe vs. Wade was my call to action. Now I'm part of a group that organizes Women's Rights protests in my area.

  14. People who think they're too good to bag their own groceries are always the worst customers.

  15. Sis, find another place to live. This dude has the keys to your apartment and could literally decide to drop by any time -- even if you aren't there! I mean, what proof is there that verifies him as an upstanding guy? The fact that he wants to pursue something with a tenant is the first red flag to me. The second red flag is that you "aren't allowed" to bring another guy home... to the apartment that you pay for. What's next, you have to be home at a certain time? Girl, please. He's insecure and trying to control you. Nope the hell out of there!

  16. Omg, hi. I forgot to mention that I live with him in the apartment. So it's just the two of us. Different rooms, though!

  17. I appreciate the clarification. But my view on his insecurities still stands. I still advise moving out and ending things with him.

  18. Ironically, it's women who suffer the most from not having a loving family when they reach a vulnerable age. (The men are already dead, usually cared for by their spouses.)

  19. People should not have children just so they will be "taken care of" in old age.

  20. I feel like this is such a strange way to frame it. If you are in a loving family, do you sit around thinking that your parents "had you" in order to take care of them when they eventually need help to survive? But they may well have decided to start a family in order to create a social unit that helps each other with the ups and downs of life. Some of those ups and downs are predictable (helplessness in early age and late age), some are more random (mental or physical disabilities, emotional traumas, etc.), but I would guess almost everyone thinks that loving families are extremely helpful in sharing the burdens of life. Sometimes you give much more than you take, and sometimes you take much more than you give, but everyone wins from the arrangement. This is why societies exist in general. Of course it doesn't always work out, but it works out so often that almost everyone wants to be in a functioning society, a loving family, and so on.

  21. No, it's not. Children do not owe their parents anything for bringing them into this world and taking good care of them. Because that is the bare minimum a good parent should be doing. Children should not be responsible their parent's emotional, mental, or physical burdens. That's not healthy for the child and it's just an unfair expectation to place upon them. Because they are literally children, not therapists.

  22. "I will not be in today due to circumstances surrounding my previously mentioned family emergency. "

  23. Hi! I work in a trade. The best advice I can give you is to stop worrying about how "pretty" you look on the job. You are not there to impress your clients by your looks. Rather, with the quality of your work and a professional attitude. If someone refuses to take you seriously or show respect simply because you are sweating and wearing proper PPE instead of designer clothes and makeup, that's their problem. Don't let them make it your problem.

  24. I know all this intellectually. But damn it if I don't feel like shit whenever I catch a glimpse of myself throughout the day :( I think, too, I care more than I otherwise might bc my husband is the only person I work with. Not that he would ever be an ass or think less of me or whatever bc of my looks, but I just don't want him seeing me look like ass all day, every day lol and I live in a southern republican hell scape, where we are judged on our looks all the time; and women in trade are already a rare breed, I also worry that I'll be taken less seriously in a professional sense when I look awful (by my standards lol).

  25. Working directly with your spouse every day can be challenging. Might I suggest you two have a date night once a week where you dress up together? It could help you both connect over something outside of work and help ease your anxiety about appearances at work.

  26. These people think Trump is modern day William Wallace and that they are his army, rallying behind him for independence from "the deep state". These delusions are such an integral part of their identities at this point that they are a danger to themselves and others.

  27. No. They do not combine DNA from Italy and/or Spain with Switzerland and label it as "Switzerland" on your results.

  28. Based on your post history, I'm sensing that you enjoy being a capitalist bootlicker. 🤮

  29. There's no company out there that allows insubordination. You're living in a fantasy world.

  30. All employees should be empowered to stand up to their shitty, egotistical, micromanaging cunt-of-a-boss. No employee is born to be lorded over by another. Authority is an illusion, a social construct used to control others. And rules, while sometimes made in the best interest of safety and well-being, are also completely made up. Either you understand this and have self-respect, or you let your boss walk all over you.

  31. Society definitely placed harmful ideas of womanhood in my head, which unfortunately stole a lot of confidence and happiness from me growing up. I have so much more confidence in myself now that I am in my thirties. I truly believe this will be the best decade of my life, so far.

  32. She knows Trump will throw everyone else in his seditionist group under the bus in an attempt to save his own ass. Of course she's nervous.

  33. Nah. I don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day as I'm neither Irish nor Christian.

  34. I'm sooo depressed about all the extra cash I get to spend on myself, and all the extra hours of sleep I get have on the weekends, and how quiet my house is after working all day. Yeah, totally depressed about it.

  35. Oh god, yes. I have a full mental breakdown every time I notice how clean my home smells and looks.
