TIFU by showering with my boyfriend and almost passing out from shit fumes
This happened an hour ago, currently relaxing in bed with the boyfriend.
Because we work together we come home together, and neither wants to wait their turn so we've decided why not just take showers together, plus it saves water, apparently. We are not cheap, just saying.
Today was all the same. Wake up, go to work, come home, and shower. But not even military training would've prepared me for what was about to unfold. My sweet himbo of a boyfriend is lactose intolerant. He does not care and continues to eat lactose and has the most gut-wrenching, eye tearing, vomit-inducing poops, and farts. Today it was a coworker's goodbye party and she brought a tres leches cake, which is a 3 milk cake. And him being the clueless man that would trade me for cake, he takes a HUGE piece. And it hit him hard. It hit him while we were showering.
Most of us know that in the shower the smell after you fart is so much more intense. Now, this is where shit happens, literally. After being under the shower for about 5 or more minutes the tiny bathroom is filled with steam and my boyfriend while shampooing my hair exclaims loudly and lets out the longest, loudest stinkiest fart that I've ever had displeasure of experiencing and runs to the toilet, holding his ass.
You would think someone was cutting trees with a chainsaw because holy shit it was so loud my mouth dropped and I could TASTE the disgusting gas that was once a tasty tres leches cake. I started heaving and gagging which became worse after this huge man nestled on a tiny toilet dropped what you would think was a nuclear bomb. It was: Wet, loud, and smelly to the point of me almost throwing up on the spot. I instead rushed to the sink that was right next to the toilet that I kind of felt bad for, and started just projectile vomiting my breakfast, lunch, and the tres leches cake that will be gone but not forgotten.
Every time I inhaled, the absolute nuclear shit fumes hit me like an 8 wheeler and I kept vomiting harder and harder. This whole fiasco ended up in me almost passing out and my poor boyfriend who couldn't stop shitting his absolute blood, sweat, and tears out could not do much to help except shit more. And more.
We ended up taking separate cold showers and airing out the windowless bathroom by opening the bathroom door and the front door which gave us weird looks but I'd rather not die and have "Death by poot" on my gravestone.... keep reading on reddit ➡
For context, this was a few years ago during the Kavanaugh trials. These trials were done around the time of the #MeToo movement really taking off. The tldr of the trial was a woman came forward to tell her story of this man raping her. Bf's father is extremely conservative, catholic, and traditional. I was waiting on bf to head out for our date day at his house. I was downstairs by the door, which was very close to the tv area where his father was sitting. On bf's way to the door, his father got up from the couch to tell him about how "messed up it is that your life could be ruined by one lying woman."
I am a survivor of sexual abuse, rape, and gaslighting. His assumption of this woman lying made me feel absolutely sick. At the time, I hadn't really told anyone what happened to me. I didn't really think anyone would believe me or that anyone would think not to blame me. This experience made it so much harder for me because it affirmed those beliefs I held at the time.
I'm not looking for much advice; I just came here to vent about something that I haven't been able to talk about.
Edit: I wanted to say thank you to everyone that responded. It's a double edged sword when it comes to this as it feels good to not be alone, but I do wish that no one else had to deal with such traumas.
Plenty of you pointed out things in my post about the Kavanaugh thing that aired on the TV. I trust you all know more than me about it, as I avoided hearing about it after leaving my bf's house that day. I was sent some clips a couple days after that I did not realize were related to it until I watched them. Specifically the one where the woman gave her statement/testimony/whatever the actual term is. Other than that, I generally lived under a rock-- no social media, no tv, and I barely went outside from 2017-2020.
I don't claim to know everything about the case. I did assume that she was raped rather than "just sexually assaulted", but regardless it was painful to listen to and opened up wounds of my own hearing it.
I’m gay. I’m attracted to men and only men. I’ve been comfortable and confident in that fact for a long time now.
But I’m “straight passing”... meaning I stereotypically look and sound “masculine”.
I prefer to dress in jeans and a button down, or sweats/athletic clothing. I prefer to not wear make up, paint my nails, or have any piercings. I prefer to not color my hair or shape my eyebrows.
I don’t have anything against those who do those things, that’s just not how I express myself or how I feel comfortable.
Yet very often I find myself being told by the gay community, the community that preaches love, acceptance and expressing yourself how you feel best, that I clearly have internalized homophobia just because I don’t express myself in the same way.
Clothes don’t make you gay. Interests don’t make you gay. How you sound doesn’t make you gay. Last I checked... the ONLY requirement that makes you gay is who you’re attracted to, right?
So why am I constantly being judged for not being “gay enough”. Why do I have internalized homophobia simply because I don’t act in stereotypical “gay” way?
I am only attracted to men. I thought that was enough.
Has anyone else experienced this? Is it just me?
> [Bontemps] Now Fred VanVleet has hit another layup, not only giving him the Raptors franchise record of 54 points but also, according to Elias Sports Bureau (per @ESPNStatsInfo ) he also now has the most points ever in a single game by an undrafted player, passing Moses Malone (53).
Previous record holder for the raptors was Demar Derozan with 52
I am pretty sure a budget reconciliation can't be used for this, so it would require the votes of at least 10 GOP members, who have consistently voted against minimum wage increases for the past 10 years. Does this also mean he may have to nuke the filibuster?
I’ve been seeing a lot of confusion and questioning of Abigail’s ethnicity on here and on Insta, esp with bachelordata releasing stats with her identified as a POC. Either people had no idea or count her out because she is “white passing” or that we can’t ignore that because of her being seemingly white passing, she experiences the world differently from other POC who are not.
As a half Chinese half white person, who would also be considered “white passing”, I can’t speak for Abigail but it’s been hard to keep seeing comments where people are questioning her being half Korean. But I can share from my own experience that yes, if you are “white passing” or “white presenting” you do experience the world differently from other POC and you do experience white privilege, and I will never ever not admit that because it’s true. I would never be a target of racism against Asians because people don’t perceive me to be Asian at first glance, and maybe Abigail would be in the same boat.
So first let me please say that. White passing mixed people have white privilege and do not necessarily help solve the problem of lack of POC on this show and will not represent their non-white ethnicity the same way a full Asian person would or someone who is half and looks more Asian.
So that’s one thing. In addition to that, I wish people would understand how complex being mixed race is and not solely judge based on appearance of how Asian/non-Asian someone looks. The idea of being white passing has nothing to do with the person, it’s about the people looking at you and how they see you. Who decides what counts as white passing? Because I’m mixed I can tell right away when people are half asian. I knew right away that Abigail was half Korean, it’s obvious to me. We have no idea how Abigail identifies with her Korean ethnicity, how she was brought up, etc. I wish we could see it on this show. But it’s worth not assuming and finding out more about a person first.
So the underlying issue that mixed people face is that they aren’t treated based on who they actually are but based on their appearance and are often treated as imposters or forced into a box of one race or another.
I’ve been around people who said racist comments about Chinese people not realizing I was half Chinese and it hurts. I speak Cantonese and have heard Chinese people talking crap about me not realizing I understand them. But I also experience white privilege on a daily basis.

Did my first FTP test today, think I undercooked it slightly, but seriously tough. Any pacing tips?
