So im 16 male I have a girlfriend 17 female. The day we became sexually active i always wear a condom. Non of our parents knew we were sexually active to the point were we trusted our older siblings to help us buy condoms rather than our parents. Im afraid my mom is going to tell her parents. Mom and her parents have known each other for 15 years because my girlfriends older sister is best friends with my older sister thats how we met. Im just freaking out they weren't supposed to know and I just can't sleep. I dont know what to do.
Super Data Research posted their blog post on their November 2020 analysis of the digital games market. In it is a really interesting paragraph on Among Us, about its success in November driving it to being "the most popular game ever".
>Among Us had roughly half a billion monthly active users in November. The title is now by far the most popular game ever in terms of monthly players. Since Among Us is not heavily monetized, earnings figures are comparatively smaller. The PC version (which has a $5 upfront price) accounted for the majority of revenue from August to November (64%) despite having an extremely small share of the total player base (3% in November).
As a Marine Corps veteran, I wanted to take a few moments and discuss a very important topic. Today, General Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made an unprecedented statement that affects every one of you. He officially called what happened in Washington on the 6th an insurrection.
What this means is that any active duty servicemembers who attended could potentially be charged with sedition under Article 94, section (a), subsection (2). For reference, here is the full text. Make sure you read section (b) carefully:
(a) "Any person subject to this chapter who—
(1) with intent to usurp or override lawful military authority, refuse, in concert with any other person, to obey orders or otherwise do his duty or creates any violence or disturbance is guilty of mutiny;
#(2) with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of lawful civil authority, creates, in concert with any other person, revolt, violence, or other disturbance against that authority is guilty of sedition;
(3) fails to do his utmost to prevent and suppress a mutiny or sedition being committed in his presence, or fails to take all reasonable means to inform his superior commissioned officer or commanding officer of a mutiny or sedition which he knows or has reason to believe is taking place, is guilty of a failure to suppress or report a mutiny or sedition.
#(b) A person who is found guilty of attempted mutiny, mutiny, sedition, or failure to suppress or report a mutiny or sedition shall be punished by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct."
These are the key takeaways:
This article makes no distinction between wartime and peacetime.
If you attended the insurrection on 1/6/21, you can be tried at court martial and executed.
If you know another servicemember who attended the insurrection, and you don't report them, you can both be executed.
If you are planning to attend any of the events that fascist organizers are planning on the 20th, or you know someone who is, DON'T. And stop others from going. Don't go to D.C., don't go to your state capitols, just stay away.
Haven't seen anyone post all year!

I would like to preface this post by saying that I do support the LGBTQ+ community. I accept the distinction between gender and sex and I refer to trans individuals by their preferred pronouns (even if they are neopronouns, despite me not agreeing with them). I also accept the idea that one can be nonbinary.
I completely understand that some people prefer they/them. They do not feel he/him or she/her adequately describes them and it is a more accurate representation of their identity.
What I don't understand is the purpose of neopronouns. Don't get me wrong, I think neopronouns are perfectly appropriate in languages that don't have neutral pronouns. I'm specifically talking about in English, though.
He/him is used to describe men. She/her is used to describe women. They/them is used to describe anyone else. So if you are not a man or a woman, the correct pronouns are they/them. Moreover, pronouns are meant to be a convenience to other people, so if one could just make up pronouns, it's really just a second name and no longer serves the function of pronouns.
I do have actual, real-life friends that use neopronouns and this is not just something I have seen on the internet. Asking them about it, they describe pronouns as if it's some kind of aesthetic. One of them goes by "sun/sun/sunself" and their reason is because it is "their aesthetic." Another one was talking about how they want to have "water-based" pronouns. I absolutely am not making this up, it seems like these people have misunderstood what pronouns are for. It seems like the entire idea is just driven by a desire to be unique or to have "an aesthetic" but not actually because of some disconnect between your identity and your body.
This post is a bit long-winded and wordy, sorry about that. I am genuinely interested in having my mind changed about this.
Final edit: Thanks for the responses! My views have been changed, I believe neopronouns are useful and aren't a major inconvenience. Feel free to continue replying though, especially if you have a new perspective.
Mitchell with the great game in win vs Pelicans. Jazz have been on fire too with their 7 straight win
