The lifestyle that many married couples could afford in the 50s/60s/70s from 1 working adult, is no longer possible and requires two adults working to maintain anywhere close to the same standard of living
I would think its just middle class and above where women have significantly started working more, and that women in poorer families have always had to work and couldn’t afford to be housewives - I see it as a sign of a shrinking middle class, that now “middle class” households have to act like “lower class/lower-middle class” households and have two working adults, in order to afford their lifestyles

I keep seeing posts about how hard it is for people to spend the holidays alone before revealing that they "only" have their spouse, children, or roommates to be with. Since when does that make you alone in any way?? I live by myself, as in me, myself, and I. Party of one plus dog. I have like two acquaintances in this city and I think I've seen a grand total of 5 people since this pandemic started because I would be deeply depressed otherwise. Living alone during all of this cannot be compared to the situations of those who have other human beings they enjoy spending time with living in the same household.
Edit: some of you are taking this post for much more than it was meant to be. Of course you can feel lonely even when you’re with others. I have no desire to compete in the sadness olympics. This was meant for a very specific set of people who are in loving households yet still claim to be alone when in reality they have other humans to interact with every day.

This seems completely contradictory to me, and I'm having trouble understanding why the life of a living person isn't as important as the life of an unborn fetus. The same concept could be applied to gun control and mask wearing. Please help me understand.
My name is Brent and in July 2018 I purchased the former mining town of Cerro Gordo with my biz partner Jon and some friends. Cerro Gordo was once California’s largest producer of silver and once had nearly 5,000 residents and 500 buildings. Today, there are 22 buildings left, and I’m working to restore the town for more to be able to enjoy it. It’s an important piece of history.
They pulled nearly $500,000,000 worth of minerals out of Cerro Gordo and in it’s heyday, the town averaged a murder per week. That’s led to many paranormal experiences, rumors about hidden treasures, and many more legends around the town. I came up here in mid-March to act as caretaker. I imagined coming up for a few weeks. It’s been over 6 months now. During that time here was a few snowstorms, a devastating fire, earthquakes, a flood that washed out the road, and a lot more.
I did an AMA back in March or April and a lot of redditors suggested I start taking videos of the experience, so now I... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m 16m and when I was 7 my mom passed away. My dad wasn’t doing good with money so he split custody with my aunt since she was also my godmother. I spent most days with my aunt and then a couple days with my dad because his work had him on the road a lot.
2 yrs ago my dad came out and it was weird af ngl but I got over it after months. He hasn’t dated anyone that I know of. Like only one guy but it was less than 6 mos. Last year he got a better job that keeps him here so he had me come move in with him.
First thing I noticed was that he has guys over like ALL the time. And I mean multiple guys, 4-5 sometimes a week depending how busy he is. Literally like different guys every single time and it’s always really awkward. They don’t know me I don’t know them an now they r here in the house. My dad told me he’s just meeting different guys for fun and not to worry because it’s not anything serious but now I rlly don’t like it.
Sometimes my dad leaves early for work and these guys ar... keep reading on reddit ➡
“we remember and honor transgender people around the world whose lives have been lost to anti-transgender violence” 💙💗🤍💗💙
Edit: Enbys too! if you don’t identify as a girl or a boy that’s perfectly valid. gender is fluid and labels are meaningless 💛🤍💜🖤
For reference, in Indonesia, 450 USD covers engineering tuition for 1 semester. 1700 (or less) USD covers medical school tuition for 1 semester.one decent meal costs 0.6 USD.
Living cost in Bangkok, Thailand is around 500 USD/month. Minimum wage in my country is ~150 USD/month.
Of course, this is just to give you an idea how "little" amount of money can help people in developing countries. I'm not saying it's better to donate to poorer countries
Edit : wow turns out many people are excited about this LPT, check the comments, there are some donation recommendation from various countries. Dont forget to background check everything, don't get scammed ok. Good luck!
Edit 2 : what if... We create a subreddit to personally connect people that might REALLY need that extra 20 bucks a month? It would be similiar to r/language_exchange . No middle person, no corporation. DM me if you have ideas on how to do that effectively, with little-to-no chance of abuse

I'm rereading Peter Pan for the first time in many years and what really sticks out to me this time is Peter's mentality. He really is 100% a boy stuck in a particular age, encompassing all the good and bad that relates to it. He alternates between boyish charm towards Wendy only to fly away and, returning shortly afterward, completely forgetting who she is, having to ask her name several times to recall her though he'd just spent days in her company. His mind is forever on the here and now. It got me wondering whether or not I would want to live a life like that.
On the one hand he is completely free of worries, stress and responsibility. He does what he wants, whenever he wants. He spends his entire life playing games and flying to and fro, the largest decision on his mind is deciding what particular game will catch his fancy that day. It's the dream existence for any boy. And yet, and yet...
He'll always be stuck in that situation. You might think it's no big deal, he probably doe... keep reading on reddit ➡
