I'm m23 and few months ago I was at a nice bar in Toronto with my boys and I saw this really hot girl. Decided to shoot my shot and we spoke and danced for a bit and I offered to buy her a drink and she gladly accompanied me to the bar, when I got there I was like can I have a beer and whatever she wants. She promptly says can I get 4 double shots of 1942. Thats like $75 a shot for a double of 1942 and I was like wtf and she said there for her friends and patted me on the back. When the bartender came back I slapped a $10 bill on the table and told him she'd be covering the shots and walked away. She was pissed and yelling the normal insults lol.
Well it turns out my mom works with her and they were talking and my mom showed her a picture of me (god damn it mom!) and she instantly recognized me and remembered my name and told my mom about what I did. My mom then called me and said I'm a huge asshole and told me to send her the cost of the 4 drinks which was like $325 with tips.

Attention men and ladies who like ladies: scratch your girl's back right where the bra band sits. It feels amazing! Especially after a long day!
Edit: OMG! This blew up! Thank you so much for the awards! Scratches for all!
Thank you /u/hopleaflet!
Edit 2: Holy shit! Thank you! Thank you so much for the awards! All because I like my back scratched LOL!
... because you’ve taken my breath away.
I'm (21M) quarantining with my university flatmates. 3 girls (all 20F) and 2 other guys (20M, 21M).
One of the guys, we'll call Sam (21M) looks like the typical "neckbeard". He's largely overweight, wears anime T-Shirts, unkempt facial hair and has spots
However, he only looks like the stereotype. He's not creepy or holier than thou. I've spent time with him and been to many parties with him, he just suffers from sometimes severe social anxiety and low self esteem.
Well, he went back home for something and I was in the kitchen with the rest of the flatmates.
One of the girls, we'll call Amy, immediately began roasting Sam by saying "I'm so glad that ugly neckbeard is gone" and how she doesn't have to look at him anymore.
Honestly, I immediately felt disgusted. I don't like bullies. I don't care where they're from or how they look like. I was once treated like that and it isn't nice.
I immediately snapped at Amy and said "You're bullying him, and that's not cool". She look... keep reading on reddit ➡
Just getting disheartened by the amount of people who just don't care about making (extremely) sexual comments about a 14 year old girl. I guess it could be an honest mistake (still messed up imo that any post with a girl or woman gets sexual comments), but being downvoted by people when I comment her age is just sad. Sometimes I really feel like needing a break from Reddit because of things like this. For anyone reading this: thanks, just wanted to get it off my chest.
Edit: I'm receiving so many nice and supportive messages! Thanks for that. Also a few rape threats, other threats, and insults, but I guess that comes from insecurity. 🤷🤷
Before I start some context is I live in a rural area and folks are usually pretty friendly around here. I’ve lived here all my life and I’m a white man, I’ve never experienced any trouble and people especially in places like banks and grocery stores are pretty kind and nice to one another.
I was in line at the grocery store and there were 2 or 3 people behind me that I vaguely knew. No one had huge shopping carts or anything as this is a small store.
A girl came up to me, she was African American, and moving very slowly. Despite her color she was very pale and sweating and limping. She asked politely if I minded if she went ahead before me because she had just started her period and was feeling unwell. She looked like she was gonna faint.
She had milk, bread, bananas and sanitary towels and without hesitation I moved back so she could take my spot.
Now the idiots behind me started hollering that they hadn’t said she could cut, I’m physically a large man and turned around and to... keep reading on reddit ➡
I haven't shaved or had a haircut in months since I got laid off and a few days ago I went to the store to return water bottles and while I was there I got some coffee creamer because I was almost out. Then I got thirsty cause it was hot out and I walked to the store so I just drank the coffee creamer I had which isn't a big deal.
Someone took a photo of me doing that and put it on the local facebook and captioned with a question about why a hobo would return bottles to the store just so he could buy and drink coffee creamer straight.
I know who it is because she facebooks under her real name like an idiot so I found her phone number in the book and called her and told her to take the photo down and she tried to tell me that there's nothing wrong with drinking creamer or being homeless and I told her I'm not homeless and that she obviously thinks there's a problem with those things or else why would she take the photo and unless she took it down I'd start following her around and... keep reading on reddit ➡
In the sixth grade, I bore witness to a stunning example of malicious compliance.
Several grades of classes from our elementary school were called to the gymnasium for some lessons on self-defence. We were to be given some very rudimentary examples of how we, as children, can fight off an attacker if there are no other options. The instructor was a man who had a long martial artist title and was unbearably smug about it. Sure, he'd made some big accomplishments, but he would take every moment available to deliver his lengthy champion title verbatim. Damned if I can remember what it was; it might have been a wilful effort on my part to erase it.
He was instructing us on how to basically go belly-up like a distressed turtle and kick off an attacker. We weren't really understanding how this was feasible, and we were asking a lot of questions about it. He got tired of the questions and called up a volunteer to demonstrate the self-defence technique. He called upon Alice, a girl in my cl... keep reading on reddit ➡
I don’t give a shit if you are hormonal. It doesn’t give you the right to be a dick. You can’t say “sorry I’m a giiiirl” every time you block someone for no reason. Stop acting like a toddler and grow up.
The last year and a half has been hard for me, to say the least.
Last March, my brilliant and hilarious and beautiful girlfriend Natalie suddenly passed away. Everyone always gave shit about us because of politics. We met in college when were were poly sci majors: she is very liberal (think AOC) and I'm pretty conservative. We actually met because we were serving as treasurers for our school's College Democrats and Young Republicans clubs, respectively, and our groups would get together for drinks or bowling or laser tag once a month.
Well, Natalie and I bonded over a lot of shared interests and we hit it off. Even if we didn't see eye to eye on many issues, debating her was stimulating and formed the cornerstone of our relationship. We've had debates that went on until dawn. We just bounced off each other. She liked to joke that we were "drift compatible".
I wanted to marry this woman, but she passed away before we got a chance to talk about marriage. I'm in therapy and... keep reading on reddit ➡
So in these corona times I'm bored out of my mind so I downloaded a dating app. I find a girl I'm really into and we connect on many things. She loves starwars, some games and she even likes football although she completely chose the wrong team to support. Anyhow I'm a bit wary she might be a cat fish cause she's hot as hell. At least a 10 maybe more. While I'm a 5 on my best days. There are a lot of catfish on the site so I ask her for a picture of her. She's understanding and we exchange some pics. Nothing special. On one of the pics I spot a prostetic leg. Well shit she's probably a bit insecure about the whole thing so I decide I must tell her I noticed but don't care about it. Yeah I think most of you probably think I'm an idiot already but don't put the popcorn away just yet it's about to get worse. I haven't mentioned the prostetic yet but I'm looking for an opportunity. We're just throwing cheesy pick up lines at each other as it is something we've been doing for a couple of d... keep reading on reddit ➡
Is it appropriate to tell her "come and fuck me yourself"
I (15F) live with my parents (mid-40s) and my brother (9M). It’s always been a dream of my parents to adopt (me and bro are bio-kids) and they had come to the decision that they want to adopt an older kid. They got matched with ‘Jess’ who is 13. Due to the current situation, she is not living with us, but we’ve met before and she’s spent a weekend with us in January. Jess, despite sometimes being sweet and kind, is very high maintenance and has a lot of anxiety and anger problems. She can go from 0-1000 really quick. During her stay, she got triggered by something when we were in public (she and I went to a clothes shop and my parents were in a cafe nearby - some guy accidentally grabbed her by her shoulder as he thought she was his daughter, and he apologised immediately) and started screaming. I was the only person there, and I tried to calm her down but she ran off.
She was found (shaken, but safe) an hour later. I then got grounded as I had failed in being responsible for my ‘sist... keep reading on reddit ➡
Up until just a year ago, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts were always separate organizations designed for a specific gender. I was a Boy Scout, and I remember it as a place where I could be myself with my other male friends. The whole point of Boy Scouts is to thrive with other guys. I realize that some people didn’t like the idea of what Girl Scouts do, and that’s why they wanted their daughter to join Boy Scouts. If you don’t like what Girl Scouts does, you should take it up with them rather then try and force a boys organization to allow girls and change their name. The legacy of the Boy Scouts has now been tarnished due to how sensitive society is, and I guarantee Boy Scouts would have faced a huge amount of backlash if they denied girls up until today.

Today is my (24) birthday, I just got done with work and was watching tv when my girlfriend of 4 years came in the room to tell me she made my favorite kind of pie. She then asked me if I would rather kiss her for $100 dollars or kiss the hottest girl I know for $700. Not thinking much about it I said I would kiss her for $100. She got upset that I didn’t say she was the hottest girl I knew. She stormed off to our room and won’t talk to me. To me it seems like a trick question and I don’t get why she is so mad. AITA?
I went to lowes with my mom to get something from there. My mom left as they usually do but she gave me the card to pay. When it was time to pay we were waiting for it to confirm and she said "you have pretty eyes" and gave me a mask for free because their is a new law where people can refuse to give you service if you don't have one. I kept my cool 😎😎 and said thank you. I told my mom and she was just making fun of it. It is now a core memory which I will remember forever.
It seems like no matter what I do, no matter what I block, my Instagram discovery page is full of these videos. I can't fucking escape them. All of these girls are like 14-16 years old and it's very clear they're trying to be sexy, and all of the comments are from creepy dudes (most of them adults) drooling over these young women...as a mid-twenties woman, I'm a little horrified. Hello, pedophilia??
These girls seem to be posting them of their own volition, but I also wonder if there's now social pressure to do this sort of thing. It seems like the "cool thing" for girls to do right now is to present themselves on social media in this way, and it seems so predatory...

I (19m) was brought up in the Jewish religion, to a fundamentalist ultra-Orthodox family. I mean, I had no internet, television, phones, movies, pork, or girls growing up. Just Talmud from morning till night. I have eleven siblings, all completely sunk into the Jewish traditions. And obviously, my entire social circle growing up was comprised of other ultra-religious Jews. I probably never had a 10+ minute conversation with either a non-jew or a girl until 18.
When I was 18 (about 2 years ago as im almost twenty), I threw off Judaism completely. You can guess what happened: absolute social ostracism. My friends and neighbors dumped me. My parents were crying for weeks straight. But...my parents were better than most, they didn’t kick me out of the house nor continually try to impose Judaism on me anymore. They basically recognized my different beliefs, and they only said that I must keep Jewish laws in front of my siblings...in my room they wouldnt bother me. 8/10 as far as religious... keep reading on reddit ➡
Young age doesn't change anything about it. It's not an excuse for boys either.
If she pretends like it's an accident, or if she does it during a playfight, or during MMA sparring, or soccer, or to her brother, cousin, "friend", none of these things change anything either.
People like that are scum and deserve a punch in the face.
It's not funny or cute or lighthearted, it's nothing to laugh about in hindsight, and any girl/woman who did that at some point in her life should be deeply ashamed and know that she deserved a hard punch in the face at the time.
And that's being generous. She did something way more painful, personal, humiliating, violating, disrespectful and gendered.
Also, I only "single out" girls, not because they're somehow worse, or more violent, or bigger assholes - they absolutely aren't. But they are the only ones who get a free pass for some fucked up reason.
Also, if it's done in the way and for the reasons I described, it is sexual violence. I can... keep reading on reddit ➡
