So, my 14 year old son recently caused a huge disruption in class. Because of the quarantine all of my sons classes have been moved online. Earlier this week, during one of his classes he made a disgusting racist comment in his classes zoom chat.
The teacher of this class is a young African american woman. During class, a student, who according to the school was also African american, asked the teacher a question. While she was answering my son posted in the chat "Fuck, when will these dirty n****** just shut the fuck up already?". Apparently, he had been messaging a friend over discord during class and accidentally posted in the zoom instead of a private message. The class immediately went into an uproar and the teacher had to end class for the day because of it. The teacher has gone to the administration about this with an external recording of the class that included the chat log, he is now facing administrative action.

I got in trouble at school this fall, I'm a junior in high school.
(Edit to add what I got in trouble for since a couple people asked... I smoked weed with a guy in the woods after school once and got caught. I also made out with him a couple times and my parents found out about that too)
As punishment my parents took away a lot of my things; all my clothes except 3 pairs of plain jeans and 3 plain black shirts and my coat. And all my makeup and hair stuff, purses and shoes; saying I had to earn things back with good behavior, I don't get to engage in my hobby (fashion) till I've earned it.
Anyway it was a shitty couple months but I came to a couple realizations.
It was actually kind of nice to not have to think about what to wear and how I look. My friends knew what my parents had done and didn't judge me. I also told anyone who asked why I looked like I only had one outfit what was up and it was no big deal.
I know it was supposed to be a demeaning humiliating punishment to ma... keep reading on reddit ➡
My son’s in his final year of middle school and will be starting highschool in a few months. This year he’s been getting in a lot of trouble thanks to a new group of kids he started hanging out with. 6 times my wife & I have been called to the deans office after they were caught ditching class. We’ve received complaints from his teachers that he’s being disruptive in class even after being separated from his friends.
And now his grades are slipping too. My wife and I have worked closely with him & his teachers to make sure he doesn’t flunk. We’ve talked to him many times, and have grounded him from doing any activities.
I’ve been strict with him and enforcing his home punishments (no TV, no phone, no laptop unless it’s for hw), but sometimes my wife lets him get a few hours of tv before I get home from work and tries to cover for him, which we’ve also talked about but she thinks I’m being too hard on him.
A month before school shutdown, my son asked me to put his groundin... keep reading on reddit ➡
With the recent Voyboy video this subreddit has been having a lot of discussion regarding toxicity and how to target it, and a very common thing I got to read was "they should be banned off ranked for some time".
I would hate to have my blind / draft be a dumping ground for toxic players. It isn't like we don't already have trolls and inters, and actually we have way more since a lot of people bring up the excuse that it's not ranked so it doesn't matter what they do, while wasting my time and making me as tilted as if someone trolls in your ranked and says "it's silver, doesn't matter".
Why is Draft pick considered OK to troll in? I'm playing the game just like everyone else and want to get fun out of it like any1 else who plays ranked or ARAM.
TL;DR : ban them or send them on a real 60 min "low priority queue" instead of banishing them to unranked queues.
FPTP and single member districts is why we have a two party system. FPTP has no advantages over other methods while severely restricting the choices voters can actually make. Other methods like Schulze ensure that the candidate that wins would beat any other in a head to head race. There are other things that I think should be changed like the electoral college and partisan gerrymandering but this is the only one that I think is totally noncontroversial. There is no perfect voting method, but RCV or Schulze is simply better than FPTP.
When the constitution was made single member districts made more sense. But now, ideologies and political issues have much less to do with region. Proportional representation or a hybrid like multi member districts would allow for a much wider variety of ideologies in the government that actually represent what the electorate believes in.
Voting is the foundation of our government, if the way that we elect our candidates is broken everything else is br... keep reading on reddit ➡
Though the UN, reddit, and mainstream media does not want to admit it, It is completely the fault of the Chinese government for deliberately covering up and lying about the coronavirus until it was too big to go unnoticed, just to save face. For this, and for a slew of other reasons, China should face severe punishment from the international community for causing as much chaos and damage as they have caused the world through their actions and behavior, including but not limited to:
-human rights violations
-damage to global climate, environments, and multiple now extinct species of wildlife
-imperialism and aggressive expansion in the South China Sea
-blatant disregard for even basic animal welfare.
Sanctions, cut trade agreements, cut alliances, recognize independence for Tibet, Hong Kong, and recognize Taiwan as the true China or recognize their independence. Pull manufacturers out of China. Anything to strip China of their power and influence.... keep reading on reddit ➡
Currently there is no punishment for leaving competitive matches. You don't lose TP, you don't get a defeat in your match history and you can bypass the deserter's time out by restarting the game. For those who are unaware, with 300 viewers average, i'm currently one of the most watched Paladins Twitch streamer, others like Mittow, Mutu, Kronsz1 and Dinttick have been suffering from the same issue. We are forced to endure a one hour window only to play a max of 2 matches, that's because people keep dodging matches all the time, not to mention those who leave the match because they don't enjoy the map and/or doesn't get to pick the champion he or she wants to play. Streaming is our job, we've been complaining about this for a long time and hi-rez refuses to take an action. This is an extreme lack of respect with all of us and we cannot by any means wait two whole months to see a change. The game needs a Hotfix that will put and end to this issue, it is honestly becoming impossible to s... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I don’t think she’s ignoring me. She would never and she does have phone issues right now. My main question is... what it’s called where you feel sick/nauseous when you don’t hear from your submissive as their Dom/Master? When you are having dreams about your submissive, day isn’t going well unless you’re talking to your submissive, etc. What is this feeling.?
This happened last year, before this craziness, but my ex is still angry about it.
My son is in high school. His school has a heavily discounted drivers ed program that they run twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. My son's father and I agreed that he would take that program because it was designed around school hours and much less expensive. My son qualified to take the program in the spring, and could get his license at the beginning of June. If he didn't take it in the spring, he couldn't get his license until January.
My son lives with me most of the time and goes to his dad's every other weekend. While he was at his dad's, he was picking on his half sister and his dad decided to punish him by telling him he couldn't take drivers ed until the fall. He did not consult me on this.
I was very upset when he told me this and asked him to change the punishment. He refused because he felt he would undermine his own authority. I pointed out that this punishment made my... keep reading on reddit ➡
A couple months ago, I sent my son (15M) to spend a long weekend with his aunt and cousin. His cousin (9M) is a very talkative, bubbly child, with a tendency to speak at length about his favorite topics. I wasn't there, of course, but after my son came home my sister called me. She said that, after my son had left her house, her son had told her that, whenever she hadn't been in the room, my son had deliberately ignored him. He'd talk to him, and get absolutely no reply. Apparently, my son wouldn't look at him at all. He'd pretend his cousin didn't exist.
I asked my son about this, and he admitted that he found his cousin "very annoying" and said that he "thought that if he ignored him he might finally shut up." I was beyond horrified. I couldn't believe he would treat a member of his family this way.
To punish him, his father and I "ignored" him for three days – the same length of time he'd been with my sister – to show him how unpleasant it was when people pretend you don't exist... keep reading on reddit ➡
Since this sub is getting flooded again with rule breaking posts, I’d like to know the community’s stance towards rule breaking posts.
This sub requires a lot of maintenance with respect to its size, since it’s purpose is kinda narrow, so a lot of people post here without reading the rules, and that makes it hard to keep it in topic.
I’ll propose some punishments to users who post inadequate content. You are free to suggest your own measures in the comments and we’ll consider the upvotes they get as support towards the idea
I'm 26F and just now starting to understand what a punishment actually is. It's so sick how our parents tormented us under the guise of "punishment."
Now I'm an adult, and I've internalized years of narc abuse to the point where if I do something wrong or bad, even if its unintentional at the time, I feel like I deserve to be holistically miserable because that's what punished means. And because the world is messy, and perfection is not possible, I must deserve to be unhappy all the time. Cue, depression, anxiety, self-loathing.
Worse still, now I know I was just a child being manipulated into committing these "punishable offenses," like back-talking, screaming, door-slamming, lying (in attempts to protect myself) so that there was an excuse to lay down some punishment. Ndad would quite literally manufacture scenarios in which I deserved to be terrorized by him.
I remember being so amazed witnessing other friends who were being punished (grounded, for example) who were still a... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have played this wipe for 20-30 hours already and I have found a single solitary flash drive, and the only way I got that one was by spawning in with the flash drive as a scav.
This means even though I'm past level 18 that I'm nowhere close to getting Peacekeeper level 3.
And by the way, this is my 5th wipe, I do know where they spawn, but it's down to RNG and I've been really unlucky.
No find in raid mission should bottleneck progression. I'd rather the pistol mission control progression in the questline for SKier than Flashdrives cause that is in my control.
Also my title is clearly an exaggeration, real cruel and unusual punishment is requiring level 3 strength to complete the hideout.
So I(32m) have two kids L(15f) C(15m) they are twins if that matters. So earlier last month my wife decided to quarintine with her sister in law out of state C's been really down in the dumps since him and his mother were very close.
These events has made him really sad and submissive. So last week they were at another neighborhood with some friends and L had the idea to convince C and their friends to spray paint all over this one house. Then L knowing how submissive C was pressured him to spray a dick on the garage door then the owner came out and said he was gonna call the cops, so they all ran off back to there homes.
All of this was relayed to me by C who was distraught and afraid of being arested, while L went To her room like nothing happened. I confronted L and she confessed to it then I told her I was going to take all of her devices away and grounded her for a week, as for C I took away his devices for a week but I gave them back after 3 days because he conf... keep reading on reddit ➡
Firefighters are returning as because of off the grid. If you're off the grid, you can't have a fire alarm and sprinkler system, and so you have to use your phone to call for help.
Repomen are coming back because the new bills system combined with the off the grid system and its expansion mean that punishing you for not paying bills by turning off power and water works differently now. Not only can you store power and water, meaning not paying bills can't hurt you if you have them stored, but you can also simply have off the grid items and your lot will keep functioning without paying bills. The repoman is a necessity to ensure that not paying bills has a downside.
And so, he is back.
Essentially, the game already had these things covered, from the base game- fires were easily solved with the sprinkler system. Bills were punished with power and water shutoff. Now that Off the Grid makes those two things not work so much, the NPCs have a real purpose, and are coming back.

A common pro-life argument is that consent to sex is consent to pregnancy, even if birth control is used.
This is usually followed by a statement about women needing take responsibility for their actions, that women knew the consequences when they decided to have sex, that women don't get to terminate just because they don't want to be inconvenienced by pregnancy, that promiscuous sex causes abortions, that women who are too lazy or too stupid to use birth control should have thought about it before they had unprotected sex, etc...
The idea that consent to sex is consent to pregnancy has nothing to do with the value of life or the wellbeing of the potential child, only with using pregnancy as a punishment for what has been deemed by the pro-life movement as irresponsible sexual behavior.
If the opposition to abortion is rooted in the desire to use the state of pregnancy as punishment for the sexual freedom of women, then the fetus is being used as a tool of punishment, not as the ce... keep reading on reddit ➡

I don't get it, just sell it on eBay or GameStop instead of smashing it. Like you paid 300 if it was a game console or 1000 if it was a phone and instead of just selling it on eBay to get some of your money back you want to smash it, thats stupid. Like if you sell it not only does your child not have the electronic anymore and is punished but you also get some of your money back instead of looking like a idiot smashing a 300 or 1000 dollar electronic.
My schools punishment system is ridiculous. A girl in my class got stabbed with a pencil (Yes it drew blood, yes there is still a mark a year later.) And the kid who stabbed her got 4 days suspension before he was back in class again. Prior to this incident a kid got suspended for a week and a half for punching a classmate (No, it did not draw blood, and no, there was not a permanent mark - just a bruise).
How in any way is this fair? A kid attacked another classmate's face with a sharpened pencil. The only reason he didn't take an eye out was because she held up her hands in defense. 4 days later and he was back in class as if nothing had happened. What if her hands didn't go up quick enough? What if the boy had access to a knife? How is punching someone far worse than attempting to stab them in the face?
In conclusion, schools should alter their punishment system to make it fair and safe for the students.

I have a 16 year old daughter, and she has 3 big chores that we pay her allowance for. She puts out the garbage, cleans up the dog poop in the backyard, and empties the dishwasher. I refill the dishwasher, so when she doesn't do her job I can't do mine (yes, I could just do it myself, and I have, but we pay her to do it, so why should I?)
This weekend my wife asked her to empty the dishwasher, and take the trash out. She said "Ok" then just went up to her room. I went up to her room an hour later, and found her laying in bed watching youtube on her phone (Volleyball videos, nothing important, if anything on youtube could be considered important) I took her phone away, and said "Your mom asked you to do your chores, not watch videos, please do them so i can do mine" She said "Whatever" and just continued laying there. So I told her if she is not down in 10 minutes I was going to send a picture of myself to all of her friends on snapchat. Now we have tried plenty of different methods o... keep reading on reddit ➡
We are all humans and no one deserves to be murdered. It is always tragic not matter the occupation of the victim. Why are extra harsh punishments given to "cop killers" and why does media usually give extra attention to a cop who was killed during an incident that many people were killed in?
If the punishment is death or results in death, I will suffer the pain of the death before being redirected and continuing the cycle.
During the Epilogue, Raskolnikov recounts a fever dream he had while staying in the convicts' hospital: "He dreamt that the whole world was condemned to a strange new plague that had come to Europe from the depths of Asia... some new sorts of microbes were attacking the bodies of men... Whole villages, whole towns and peoples went mad from the infection... They did not know how to judge and could not agree what to consider evil and what good; they did not know whom to blame, whom to justify. Men killed each other in a sort of senseless spite... Men met in groups, agreed on something, swore to keep together, but at once began on something quite different from what they had proposed. They accused one another, fought and killed each other... All men and all things were involved in destruction. The plague spread and moved further and further." (446-447).
