"I'm going to listen, learn, show up, donate and support" - Jonah Hill at a BLM protest.
The European Parliament voted to declare that "Black Lives Matter" and to denounce racism and white supremacism. The resolution has no legal consequences but sends a signal of support to anti-racism protesters, and it follows a UN call for a probe into police brutality and "systemic racism" france24.com/en/20200619-…
In England you sometimes see these "wavy" brick fences. And curious as it may seem, this shape uses FEWER bricks than a straight wall. A straight wall needs at least two layers of bricks to make is sturdy, but the wavy wall is fine thanks to the arch support provided by the waves.
AITA for keeping a baby even though the father doesn't want children and filing for child support ?
I (29f) have a condition which makes me more or less infertile or so I was told.
Roughly two months ago I had a one night stand with a guy. I don't use birth control due to my condition but I did insist on a condom.
Lo and behold I'm pregnant my gynecologist confirmed it.
Now, I'm in a good position financially. I have a stable job and enough savings to live a very comfortable life. I'm close to my parents and sister. So, I have decided that I will keep the baby. I have always wanted to be a mum and this might be my only chance.
I contacted the father and told him. I said I'd be happy to co parent should he be interested but I understand if he isn't. I would be filing for child support regardless though.
The guy absolutely lost it and said I need to abort the baby and that I lied to him. Apparently he asked me what my opinion on abortion is to prevent this situation. I remember him asking me but he never specified his question and I thought it was more general. I told him I'm

AITA for refusing to support our daughter after she gives birth?
Edit: Thank you so much for your kind responses, I've tried to read all the comments but this blew up overnight. However some general things:
- Our 27f daughter assumed she could live with and be financially supported by us in the year after her child was born because our eldest went through significant financial hardship when she was trying to have a baby due to paying for ivf/fertility treatments and as a result almost ended up homeless because they remortgaged their house to afford it but then her husband was in a car accident and needed time off work meaning they were unable to pay their mortgage and the bank claimed their home.
- I dunno what I can say to convince you this is real, yes its from a throwaway because my main account has part of my real name on it and both my 27f daughter and my son and his wife are familiar with it. There were 3 edits to this post. Originally it included a couple of paragraphs about how our 27f daughter made some homophobic comments about my wife'

There is going to be a massive #MeToo movement in the Dota 2 scene and we should support it
This is a good opportunity to push out people who have capitalized on their perceived fame to take advantage of people who have little to no voice. When the list of names come to light, we should do our duty to carefully gather, analyze, assess and disseminate any type of evidence and information that could prove / disprove accusations. We can't just ignore the claims that people who have been victimized are making.
This could be a big step in the Dota 2 scene, and could lead to a better and more equal representation for players, specially in tournaments where the players are predominantly male. I for one would love to see women and members of the LGBTQ community whos got what it takes compete in TI.
I just want to say that a few people have pointed out that "gathering, analyzing, assessing and disseminating evidence" is not our job. This is for the courts and judges to decide, so I apologize for being short sighted. I do implore everyone to remain vigilant!

AITA for not dropping child support even if my husband is able to support my child financially?
When I was 20, I dated Ryan who was 28. I let him know how I felt about abortion (pro-choice but I don't want one for me) and that I was using birth control regularly. I became pregnant 6 months into our relationship after four years of continuous BC use with zero scares. He did not want to use a condom, which I do agree was very stupid on my part.
Ryan wanted no part which I understood. All I asked was that he provided child support in whatever way he could. He disagreed and eventually, I had to go to court. Over 3 years, he would evade support, work under the table, or use his wealthy parents to support him. I did get a steady stream of support after 2 years but it was just barely enough. I eventually graduated from college while being a mom 24/7 and working. I was mom and dad for 3 years and did it on my own financially with the odd CS check here and there. After that, I met my husband Kyle. Kyle has been in our lives since my son, Lukas, was 3 years old. Lukas calls him "dad" and

AMD Support is Completely Unacceptable - Card Destroying Driver Issue Not Fixed After Almost a Year
To start out: I'm not asking for tech support, because it's a driver issue that will never be fixed.
Long story short, I bought two Vega 56 cards specifically for the purpose of rendering scenes in Blender, but I may as well have flushed hundreds of dollars down the toilet instead, as that would have caused me less stress and wouldn't have wasted as much of my time. Because if you try to render anything on the card your monitor is attached to, after about 30 seconds your screen turns black until the graphics driver can recover and the program crashes. Or, if you try to troubleshoot it and it happens multiple times, this will happen and you'll have to RMA your card.
According to Blender developers, the issue isn't Blender related, it's an issue with AMD's drivers, and it's been an issue for almost a year. No fixes, not a peep from AMD. I emailed support asking for an update

My father has been accused of raping a child. How do I support my parents without losing my own sanity?
Edit: Thanks everyone, I've read all your answers and there have been some really helpful bits of advice. I appreciate it. Will probably delete this post soon so don't keep getting notifications about it but thanks for your help.
I (M35) have just found out that my father has been accused of raping a child that I know. He will go on trial later this year.
He has always been an excellent father to me, I love him and I can't believe he would do this, but I also can't believe that the child would lie about this since going to court will be massively traumatic for them too.
I don't live near them (and Coronavirus has shut down travel in my country) so from a distance I'm trying to support my mother, who is so distraught I'm worried she will have a heart attack or something. I'm also trying to support my father, because if he is innocent then I cannot fathom how gruelling this is for him. And if he's guilty then our justice system and everyone else on the planet will take care of punis

WIBTA if I made a donation in the name of an acquaintance who does not support the cause?
I’m (28M) am getting married this year to another man (27M). Most of our guests have been very supportive, but we received a letter from one couple telling us that they do not support us and won’t be able to attend our “event”. They also stated that they hope we find “the Truth”. While I’m disappointed, this also means that we’ll save a little money on the wedding on food/alcohol/etc.
I think it’s obvious that they’re TA for sending this letter, but I wondering WIBTA for taking the following action:
I would like to donate the money I will save to an LBGTQ organization in their name. I’m hoping that I or the organization will be able to send them a receipt/thank you for the donation. WIBTA?
