I do not condone looting and am only bringing this up as stories of protesters and reporters being arrested, blinded, and assaulted with chemical weapons becomes more prominent. You are by far, much safer with a group that will be held legally accountable watching over you.
Seeing tons of videos where protestors stand in front of a car and then surround it. Then, the driver gets spooked, accelerates and runs over one of the protestors. Then you see a bunch of protestors "shocked" that the driver had the audacity to try to escape a dangerous situation.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
If you want to protest, do it in a safe way and don't fucking threaten other people's lives.
If you do, don't expect sympathy when you get run over.
I (F23) am currently staying at my girlfriend’s (26) apartment and yesterday she wasn’t feeling well. She had really bad cramps, was throwing up and had a really bad headache. We were out of medicine and groceries so I went out to get some.
I picked up the medicine and went into the grocery store, trying to get to the checkout as fast as possible. I was really lucky that there was no line and was already unloading my cart when a pregnant women asked me if I could let her in front of me. Normally, I would have said yes but her cart was bursting and I had to catch the next bus. Maggie has a car but I don’t drive it because of insurance issues. I really didn’t want to wait for the next bus because I didn’t want to leave Maggie alone for too long and I really didn’t have that many items. I wouldn’t have gone grocery shopping in the first place but the pharmacy is right next to the store and we really needed a few things.
I told the lady that my girlfriend was sick at home and I would h... keep reading on reddit ➡
Sooo, yesterday I posted on this sub for the first time and I got a lot of attention (TIFU by thinking I got my sister pregnant). The post was basically about my sister using my blanket that had my ejaculation on it and I thought I got her pregnant. That was a story I have never told anyone before.
I was so excited my post got a lot of attention that I told my family my post got on the front page of reddit without telling them what I posted and what my username was. I thought that since no one in my family has reddit, they would never check my post.
So It turns out my sister got curious as to what I posted that got so popular. She went on reddit to try and look for my post.
She recognized my username because I have the same name on my netflix account. (I’m dumb af)
And she read the post...
Now she is disgusted that she has slept in a blanket that had my cum in it. And I haven’t talked to her since.
Welp, at least she’s moving to college soon.
TL;DR I accidentally told my siste... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I have been living with my step mother and dad for the past few months.
I really dislike my stepmom. She is always insulting me for things that aren't fully my fault (like being socially anxious) and she doesn't treat me like a family member.
She also refuses to use my real name, because that's her other (older) kids name too. She calls me by my middle name instead, which I absolutely hate. I told this to her a thousand times, but she just doesn't care.
Yesterday I went shopping with her for groceries. After we got out of the shop and walked over to the car, she noticed her boss a few cars away and went over there to talk. After a few minutes of me awkwardly standing by the car she shouted to me to go there and introduce myself, but she, as always, didn't use my real name.
I decided to ignore her. I hoped that she will realize her "mistake" and correct herself, but she kept shouting my middle name. She gave up trying after a while and said goodbye to her boss very soon.

This happened a few days ago, but I’m posting it now. Sometimes, tunnel vision gets to the best of me and of course, it happened when I walked in front of these two chicks cart in a Walmart parking lot. As soon I realized what happen, I was about to turn around to apologize, but they immediately started bad mouthing my husband and I saying things like, “I can’t believe they didn’t notice us” and other related things. I decided not to make eye contact and ignored them because I knew this was going to explode if I said something. A few seconds later, that’s when one of the girls said the phrase above.
I kinda gave a confused gaze and my husband noticed. He asked what was wrong and I told him. He wasn’t aware that the girls were talking to us but he started laughing because obviously he doesn’t appear to be white, he’s Peruvian.
As for me, I’m considered to be very white for a Mexican. People confuse me for a white girl all the time, and honestly, it doesn’t bother me because it’s a t... keep reading on reddit ➡
I am an atheist who grew up as an evangelical, right wing, pastor’s kid in rural America. Son of God arguments aside, the teachings of Jesus have great value on a humanitarian level, and the notion that this f*cking sociopathic monster would dare to pose with a bible in hand in front of a church — claiming to know or understand or be associated with anything having to do with the teachings of Jesus — makes my blood boil on a level I didn’t think possible. To quote the teacher himself, “Many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’”
Shame on this particular worker of lawlessness and
everyone anyone who claims to be Christian that has enabled him.
Edit: Just want to make it very clear that I am not in any way assuming all followers of Christianity support and enable Trump. These things can... keep reading on reddit ➡

I live in England but was born and raised in Southern Sweden. I very rarely meet Swedish people, so it came as a shock to me when I was at the supermarket with my boyfriend and heard a family speaking Swedish. Obviously due to social distancing I didn’t get to have a full blown conversation with them, but we covered the basics. I love speaking Swedish but don’t get to very often unless talking to family.
As I said I was at the supermarket with my boyfriend. When I began chatting to this family, my boyfriend walked off without even giving me a second look. It took me about ten minutes of aimlessly wandering around the shop before I realised he’d gone back to sit in the car.
He gave me the silent treatment the entire way home, we’ve been together 3 years so live together, and almost slammed the door in my face when we arrived home. I asked him what was wrong and he said nothing, so I pushed some more and he said it was disrespectful and made him look like an idiot when I speak Swedis... keep reading on reddit ➡
Obligatory throwaway and also this happened about a year ago. It’s resurfacing again because BIL has made it a point to ignore me since and my husband wants me to apologize once and for all.
So some background: my BIL, 43, sees himself as an expert in all things and grew up with the kind of family that always praised him for being “brilliant” (he’s really not).
Personally I’ve always disliked him because he’s arrogant and always calls me “over emotional” whenever I disagree with him on anything. Instead of owning up to his mistakes when he’s caught, he’ll also pretend like he never said it or you just misunderstood him or you’re too “irrational” for him to continue the convo.
On our anniversary dinner last year, BIL was sat close to me and further down the table was one of my good friends who happened to be in town.
Well he was spouting some major BS about stock markets this time. He had just gotten really into investing and none of us really knew what he was talking about. I c... keep reading on reddit ➡
Lace is sexy, but that stupid little bow is so juvenile and weird.
That is all.
I just had my first and so far only child 6 months ago. My company shut down "temporarily" in March, two weeks before I would have come off of maternity leave, and there aren't jobs in my field for the duration of this, so I'm a stay at home mother for now.
My husband and I found out 4 months ago that he has a now almost 6 year old child. We got together 3 years ago. There was no cheating or anything like that. Apparently, she had tried to find him but "couldn't" and the only way she tracked him down was when I posted him on my fairly public social media involving my job. He doesn't use social media and had no idea that she had even gotten pregnant.
They've now started doing weekend visits that will eventually go to 60/40. I didn't really have a choice in this because he insisted that he can't "abandon his child" and of course the implication that I have nowhere to go and no money. It's true, I have no safe family even slightly nearby and my friends don't have living situations that... keep reading on reddit ➡
I looked down at what was left of my only epipen as my vision began to get blurry and my breathing became more labored
I was up late studying for my midterms about 4 hours ago and we had a quick conversation when he came down for breakfast. I went to bed and heard him call for help as I was getting under the covers, ran down and saw him on the floor. I called 911 and did everything I could to be as helpful to the EMTs as I could, but they were unable to resuscitate him. The funeral home just rolled his body away.
I don't really know why I'm posting this tbh but I'm not reacting emotionally the way I should because I'm still 90% calm while my mom and sister are still sobbing around me. Thoughts? Advice? Anything is welcome tbh.
Edit: The responses have been overwhelming, and I thank everyone for their kind words. For those of you who doubt this, I understand. I've been lurking on this sub for a couple of years and have witnessed a lot of the attention-seeking, karma-whoring stories that have cropped up. Like I said, I'm not sure why I posted this. Maybe some part of me did want attention, but if so,... keep reading on reddit ➡
No more "Oops, that cop did a bad thing but we can't do anything about it because we can't see who it is".
I would like to thank each and every one of you for your dedication to the anti-g*mer cause. The past weeks have been crazy - we came into the spotlight of reddit and have since been constantly brigaded. We've had to endure an endless stream of abuse, bullying and harassment from angry and violent g*mers who simply cannot accept the existence of peaceful anti-g*mers. But they made a vital mistake.
They targeted anti-g*mers.
We're a group of people who will sit for hours, days, even weeks on end opposing the influence of Big G*ming. Over, and over, and over all for nothing more than a small sigh of relief of knowing we did our part in making the world a better place. We'll push ourselves doing things others would consider torture, because we willingly interact with g*mers to try and help them in their despair. We'll spend most if not all of our free time proselytizing and preaching our cause all for converting a single g*mer to a peaceful, law-abiding and God-fe... keep reading on reddit ➡
