My girlfriend and I have been dating since June of 2018. We are pretty close and her family is on good terms with mine. We do have our fights like every other couple, I find my girlfriend to be pretty ‘reactive’ and it has been a problem before in our relationship but we can generally sort things out.
Also, I want to add too, that I don’t live with my parents I normally have my own space but I moved in because of the lockdown and I didn’t want my parents out shopping. My parents are in decent shape, but we have a family history of diabetes my dad has Diabetes (Type 1) and my mom is prediabetic.
My girlfriend has been understanding in fact she took this lockdown super seriously and was frustrated that people weren’t taking it seriously enough.
She started to go to the protests in our city, she asked me to go, I told her no that it would be irresponsible since I am with my parents. She was upset but understood.
We were going to have a pizza night at my house, and my mom invited my... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have a good long distance male friend in his late 20s (I’m mid 20s). I was talking to him on the phone yesterday saying that I’ve been on a couple dates with a guy and that I hope it goes somewhere. (This would be my first relationship/sexual experience etc.) I thought out loud to myself that I may have to start thinking about/looking into birth control. He laughed and said but you’re not a slut! Sluts take birth control! I was taken aback and said I guarantee you most women are or use some from of birth control otherwise how do you not get pregnant?! He laughed again and said the withdrawal method! I was pretty offended so I changed the subject cause I didn’t want to talk about this anymore.
He was laughing, it may have been just at my reaction but he seemed pretty serious. He grew up in rural-ish small town America. So maybe the community or views of people there have sort of influenced him to think like that? But it’s very weird. Like how does a guy think he knows more about a... keep reading on reddit ➡
Sexism is alive in America
I live in a southern state, and I have experienced sexism first hand. The hospitals where I live are owned by the Catholic Church and my insurance only covers the doctors that are affiliated with them. When trying to get birth control for its purpose- to prevent pregnancy, I was denied because I wanted it for that. They told me I could only be prescribed birth control if I had medical problems from my period like pain or heavy bleeding. So basically, the church doesn’t want women to be able to prevent pregnancy. Then they go onto make abortion illegal...how is that fair if we can’t even control getting pregnant in the first place? It fucking infuriates me, that In our modern world in America where I am suppose to have individual rights I don’t even have choices over my own body. How are we a secular nation if the church controls our hospitals and health care?
Edit: I’m an adult woman in a long term relationship, I have sex just like almost every other adult... keep reading on reddit ➡

EDIT : ok since it kinda blew up I just wanted to add that the weapon by itself is totally fine, it’s just it’s ability to shutdown capture points for a really long time that seems overtuned to me.
I come from England where you rarely see the Union Jack or the English flag anywhere outside of government buildings, during the World Cup, or a few unusual people who have flagpoles. Actually having a flag on display is someone's home has negative connotations - associated with ethno-nationalism and by extension some far-right views. Not saying I agree with this, but it seems to be the prevailing view.
In China the visage of Chariman Mao is everywhere and the same for Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam. They have huge images of them in all government buildings and there is an image of them above the board in every classroom. They are described as the "Father of the Nation" and Ho Chi Minh is referred to as "Uncle Ho". My own belief for this is as a form of control - they both represent their own political parties and cultivate the feeling of trust towards the party in order to retain control. This is done in schools in order to develop that belief from a young age. I believe the US flag plays th... keep reading on reddit ➡
Restaurants, movies, stores... doesn’t matter. If your kid is out of control, you need to do the right thing and just leave because often times kids that lash out like that are the result of spoiled behavior by the parents at home.
I, 29, hate debt. It's nothing but a weight around your ankles to keep you from moving ahead with your life. I was lucky enough to get scholarships for most of college, and paid off the loans I did have to get ASAP. I did go ahead and buy a new car for the increased safety features, but only have a few thousand left on that loan, because again, aggressive paying it off. I just bought a house because a mortgage is half of what my old apartment rent was, but I plan on being aggressive with this too, and hopefully have it paid off in a fraction of the time. Long story shit, I fucking hate debt. Makes me very anxious and feel physically sick.
My gf, 29, on the other hand, has a ton of debt, and doesn't really care. She has student loans, her car, and her credit card, and is making the bare minimum payments so she has extra money to play with each month.
Because I do love her, and could theoretically see myself spending my life with her, I made her a deal - she could live in my house, re... keep reading on reddit ➡
The announcement tweet from Jo Maugham is below. Another thing to note from this outrageous contract is that it was never put out to tender for any other company to bid on. The government also had many offers from many other companies offering vast numbers of PPE (in some cases for very little money). The government refused them all

I bought Control a few weeks ago on PC and didn't touch it, left it as a 'rainy day' game that I'd pick up when I was bored of the others I was playing.
Well hot damn, yesterday I started playing around 5pm and I played it until 4am! I still have so much progress to go and it has completely drawn me in.
I play on PC with an Xbox controller and I feel so at home playing it. Without spoiling anything, the game is directly inspired by the SCP foundation games and lore and it does an amazing job in my opinion at making it work it their universe with their spin on it. The game has a bunch of little mysteries you need/can choose to solve and I love it.
The game is open world but also takes place all in one building. A MASSIVE building... It's mental, you'll see what I mean.
If you were looking for a new single player game to sink a tonne of hours into, Control is your game. I haven't found a single thing I don't like about it yet, the movement is great, the abilities are fun and upgr... keep reading on reddit ➡
This is the core of Conspiracy. And one we all need to unite on.
Let me start by focusing on you, the person reading this. I want to say, from a complete internet stranger that I love you and I want the best for you. Because you are another aspect of myself, and deserve love and safety just as much as I do. You are my fellow man, and I do not care what skin color you have as you read these words or what view points of reality you have. You are a brother. You are a sister. We are a family. We are a human family. We are a creative powerful species capable of amazing feats when we come together. We bicker, we fight. We struggle, we compete. We survive. We do what we must in a world ripe with negativity.
But in the end, when everything settles, creative light and love are at the core of who we are. We are meant to love one another, not hurt each other. We have the potentials for so much abundance for all, but a select group of power thirsty power over others, service to self group of p... keep reading on reddit ➡
My (25M) parents are very religious Christians. They are pretty okay usually, but are crazy about no premarital sex etc.
And in their minds this also means that you don't need things like the HPV vaccine or birth control until you're married. All because they "pushed" you to have sex. Very flawed logic, I understand that. They aren't against any other vaccinations, however. HPV is the only one they refused to let us get.
When my sister was 15, she had been getting really bad period cramps and such. She missed school regularly because of it, and the doctors recommended getting her on birth control to help with it. It was an immediate no from my parents. They were willing to try anything other than that. In the end decided to just exclusively pray for her recovery.
So sister couldn't get on birth control and suffered every month because parents' refused to get down from their religious high horse.
After the first few initial attempts at convincing, I didn't try to get them to und... keep reading on reddit ➡
They've been deleting people posting screenshots of Mark Greenberg's FEC records showing the maximum donation to Donald Trump for the last hour or more on their Facebook page.
It is very natural to question things you have no proof of. Does invoking fear of God help in stopping people from committing atrocities, since, you know, "God is watching"?
Good lord. Well where do I begin? Again thank you to everyone who has been reading my posts the past few weeks. It's been a rocky ride but I think this may be the rockiest yet. To those that haven't kept up let me give a summary:
I'm not just referring to the sprint glitch that is being addressed on Monday.
Everything feels like it's off. Weapons seem to shoot a fraction of a second later than your trigger pull, Quickdraw and handling perks seem ineffective, Traction appears to do nothing now, cooldowns seem glitched, shots take extra time to register or don't register at all.
The whole game feels like it's running on an old PC. I feel like I'm in a thick soup. It feels like everyone is lagging ever so slightly, when no one is. Like handling on all weapons has been set to zero. Clunky, awkward and sludgy.
Trials has really highlighted the issue.
It can't JUST be the controller mapping issue, unless they fundamentally changed the entire control system to get it to work. Please Bungie, whatever has been changed, change it back. This feels like a completely different game now, and a much worse one at that.
EDIT: It seems Bungie are aware of some, if not all of the issues: https://www.bungie.net/en/Forums/... keep reading on reddit ➡
