Why YSK: because mistakes happen and minds change, especially during such an emotional and stressful time. You don’t have to live with regret because you messed up the spelling or you suddenly realize that the baby’s name just isn’t the right one.
I am 27f from a Latinx/Hispanic family and I feel as if I am not receiving the respect that other adult women in my family do because I don’t have kids. A lot of my family members men and women included had kids in their early twenties, some younger, and some are still having them later in life. Yet when we would have family gatherings or I would see or visit them, I am still treated as younger, even if I am their age or older just because I don’t have kids. News flash I don’t want kids right now, and that doesn’t change the fact that I am a grown ass woman! I hate these societal and cultural pressures and ‘milestones’ that are used to value our worth. It is frustrating, annoying, and very archaic. I want to be respected and valued for who I am not what my body can do! Ok rant over, thank you for your time ☺️
Edit: Wow! Did not think my morning thoughts would get so much response. Thank you all for sharing your own perspectives and experiences in dealing with this. I'm glad to be part of this community! Thanks for the awards, you are all worthy just for who you are! :)

>Effective Thursday, January 14, 2021at 12:01 a.m., the government is issuing a stay-at-home order requiring everyone to remain at home with exceptions for essential purposes, such as going to the grocery store or pharmacy, accessing health care services, for exercise or for essential work.
Everyone must stay at home unless essential
Schools in GTA will stay closed longer
Residential evictions suspended again
Mandatory work from home for non essential workers.
Non essential construction closed
Non essential retail must be closed by 8pm
Mask mandatory in all public places
South ontario schools closed to Feb 10
Hot spot schools may not resume
Expect details of the stay at home order to be released shortly. Please note that the details will most likely change up until it comes into effect (as these restrictions often do). Please check back before the start of the stay at home order.
This is a note to everyone including myself.
People never seem to learn that resorting to insults and words fueled by emotion won't ever make you the bigger person nor will you come across as an intelligent and highly conscious individual.
Even if you have a person spewing out the most hateful and insane shit, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING will improve from you responding to them in a hateful/emotional way.
How do you expect this person to ever change if that's how you respond to them? How do you expect the world to become a better place if that's how you react to anyone disagreeing with you? How can we as humans ever evolve if we insist on sustaining this constant hate and division?
EDIT: Ok since this post kind of blew up I'd like to add some points that reflects some of the response I've gotten (I may add some more to this later when I've had time to properly read all the comments)
I see a lot of people resorting to exactly what I spoke against in this post, I guess it proves just how hard it it for us to not identify with e.g. our politic believes and take personal offense to anyone opposing it. I still urge anyone to practise taking a step back and not be so reactive. Think about what purpose your comment will serve. I'm not trying to take some moral high ground here I'm simply saying we can benefit from some anger management lol. I can assure you it's great for your mental health to not be so reactive.
A lot of people have said something along the lines of "but people need to know their place and if someone is acting like a complete moron I will make sure to let them know how stupid they are"
Is that really the most effective approach? How would that make them want to understand you more or understand their own lack of reasoning more? Wouldn't it just make them more defensive and aggressive? You can do your best to prove them wrong but there is no need to add any of your own emotion and anger to it. Just respond with reason and logic. It will make it even more clear who is the more conscious person.

I wanted to this for a long time. I got the idea to watch all of the Best Picture Winners from some random reddit comment early in 2016 and immediately started to buy all the movies i didn't already have in my collection. Had to shop around a bit, because not every movie was available here in Germany, or some where only available as DVD. So i shopped in UK, the US and Asia to get all the titles, even though i had to settle for DVD instead of Bluray for some of the older ones. And i included Sunrise into the thing, as in my opinion the first awards had two Best Picture categories and this was the winner of the one that wasn't awarded anymore in the following year.
When i finally had them all in the last third of 2016 i decided to put the project on hold because i wanted to finish watching all the other movies in my Bluray collection first. With a 2900+ title collection this takes a while, so the Best Picture marathon had to wait until September this year.
I had to reduce my average daily movie intake a bit during that, as some of the movies aren't exactly easy to watch material i think and they deserved their time and standing, so i didn't want to cramp to many of them in one day, resulting in some days where i only watched one and then proceeded to watch some random dumb stuff on Netflix or Prime, you could say to cleanse the pallet or something like that.
Overall i have to say it was a really nice experience to see a bit of the history of cinema and the way the techniques and styles have evolved. There are winners i haven't really heard of before the project, and i have to say some of them are lost to time for a reason. Not every winner is a master piece or a milestone, some of them, even in the early days, just make you question how the other movies from that year must have been. This feeling was of course quite a bit stronger in later years, when i came to years where i basically know every movie. And i know, one could consider it a bit circle jerky to shit on some of the later winners, but in my opinion there is absolute truth to a lot of it. Shakespear in Love, Chicago and Crash to name a few very famous examples, are really things with no right to such an award. But of course one must always remember that the awards are basically an advertisement and popularity contest and don't really try to reflect the best the industry has to offer. Overall I'm glad to have watched a lot of the movies and the good experiences fortunately greatly outweigh the ba... keep reading on reddit ➡
