Lmao I was at the gas station, washing my car window. The local station has a uniform, it’s a green collared shirt with the logo and black pants - both of which I wasn’t wearing. Anyway this lady calls over at me like “me next!” I’m like okay, I thought she was talking about using the brush so I smiled and said “okay”. I put the brush back in it’s bucket and went to walk toward the station, when I heard a woman say “excuse me, I said I’M NEXT” I turned around and glanced at her, thought whatever, and went inside. Paid for my gas, and went to the ATM at the back of the store. As I was leaving the cashier goes “we’ve just had a complaint about you” so I go “yeah?” And he replies “that lady said you didn’t wash her windscreen and wants to speak to the manager, she’s coming back tomorrow” I just giggled and left, I’ll be going back again tomorrow to see if I can catch her.
Everything they taught me how to do in life was wrong. I've slowly realized this over the course of the past year being away from them and NC.
The dishes were one of the main things they used to abuse me with. Screaming at me if I hadn't done them, standing over my shoulder when I would do them, yelling that I did everything wrong, making me completely clean every dish until it was spotless before putting it into the dishwasher, shaming me for being "lazy" when really I was terrified to do dishes because it always ended in abuse.
Today I was washing a pan with my hands, because that's what I grew up doing and my fiance looked at me and asked what I was doing. I told him washing the pan. He asked why I was washing it with my hands. When I said "why would I not?" his face fell and he was like "They told you to wash dishes with your hands didn't they?"
Turns out you're not supposed to use your bare hands to scrape food off of dishes. You're supposed to use a sponge or something. And you don't have to clean them until they're spotless before they go in the washer either. That's what the washer is for.
Every day I realize there's always something else to unlearn because they set me up for failure.
Edit: wow I was not expecting this to blow up as much as it did. Thank you so much to everyone for all of your support and the awards. To everyone who shared their experiences, I am so sorry that happened to you and you are all stronger than you realize.
Why YSK: I just remembered this painful story after watching an ad for Pro-Active and felt I had to share.
I used to get my eyebrows waxed fairly often. Never had any issues and we made sure to go to a place that used organic products. One day I decided to start using Pro-Active on myself. I don’t think it helped my acne, but it did have another affect! CHEMICAL BURNS AFTER WAXING MY EYEBROWS. My eyelids and the areas under my brows were bright red. The top layer was burnt off and it hurt for weeks.
Just a small tip. If you change your face care routine at all...let the aesthetician (person who does your waxing) know.
EDIT: This article goes more into why using retinol with wax can be dangerous. I think mixed with whatever my aesthetician was using, I got a very severe version of what she talks about. [this is not me in the article nor me in the photos]
EDIT 2: apparently my wording has caused anger within the bowels of another human. I should say don’t put retinol on sensitive areas of your face or any skin really ESPECIALLY if you’re going to wax.
I learned this while playing kings cup a year ago. We got to never have I ever, and his was “Never have I washed the lower half of my body.” The whole group of us drinking and playing exploded. He defended himself by saying he washes his upper body and just lets the soap run down and that makes him clean. The wildest thing is his wife said she does the same thing.
You can't convince me that the way they invalidated the beautiful end of Season 17 with a single offhand remark was okay. No matter what you say. Season 17 did wonders with Washington, by giving him something that he couldn't come back from. It was heartbreaking, motivating, and tragic to see the epitome of strength and durability in the group be shattered by something he couldn't control. The way it affected his friends was equally as well-done. Carolina was too scared to admit to herself that her pillar of strength was buckling under pressure, and the Blood Gulch Crew was so adamant in coming with him in the final moments. It was a good character decision, but Season 18 needed Washington to be okay, so he is now.
Tucker was so poorly handled this season. Lost his sword (without even getting involved in the fucking fight), got no character moments, his reaction to seeing Wash and Carolina was more akin to meeting a distant relative for the first time than seeing the people he saved a planet with, and they completely mishandled is man-whore phase (something he had already grown out of).
If you want to defend Season 18, go right on ahead. Be a contrarian. I don't fucking care. But you can't tell me, or yourself, that the level of disrespect that the writers treated these characters with was okay. The only reason Wash, Carolina, and Tucker were in this season was so they could put Red Vs. Blue in the title. That decision shows in the level of depth these characters now have.
From my observation, FDS is heavy on radical feminism especially the extremely bigoted strain (think julie bindle, sheila jeffreys, germaine greer etc), which is not suprising since it shares the same userbase with r/gc and r/pinkpillfeminism.
to understand radfem homophobia, radfems like sheila jeffreys and marilyn fyre write books about how the male culture is misogynistic and homoerotic. they go further and claim that misogynistic men exist because they are closeted homosexuals and turn their internalized homophobia into hatred for women (which is a popular trope parroted among FDS members including the mods) , and that gay men are inherently misogynistic because women have no use for them. in short radfem theories for homosexuality can be summarized into
in fact, radfems have a tendency to breakdown and downplay LGBT issues and explain away their unique struggles in terms of misogyny. for example, they believe that "trans ideology" is misogynistic because they think that
that's why LGBTphobia, especially transphobia, homophobia and biphobia, is a common theme in r/FDS .
now look at the comments
>Gay men are some of the strongest proponents of disgusting misogyny, never forget
literally sheila jeffrey's theory of gay misogynists
>I've said this too on subs that no longer exist. Gay men are not allies. They don't need you for sex so, at best, they are making you their emotional wash rag or living out their femme fantasies through you by controlling you (approving your hair, makeup, dress, etc.). At worst, they're using you to scout talent.
>This 100%. I am afraid of coming across as homophobic when I say this irl, but I think this.
>The truth is never "phobic". That's just male gaslighting and manipulation. If I'm so homophobic, how come so many lesbians are my girls? 😂
there is a rising propaganda in radfem and conservative publications to frame surrogacy as one of "LGBT rights", when in actuality the overwhelming majority of customers for surrogacy are straight women.
>Yes. Except the rich ones are very eage... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hands are a body part too?!?
