But now everyone and anyone can just walk right up to front door of the Whitehouse while being violent today?
They barricaded the White House and called in the National Guard to disperse the BLM protest. But today it’s open house? With a stand down order?
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW?!
This is a reminder than there is still a risk of getting pregnant using the 'pull out' approach to birth-control.
From plannedparenthood.org: "... pulling out can be difficult to do perfectly. So in real life, about 22 out of 100 people who use withdrawal get pregnant every year — that’s about 1 in 5."
Just a little PSA. Stay safe out there!
Edit: Since it looks like I'm being called out for using 'Bridgerton' as clickbait, there is a significant emphasis in the show in which as character uses the 'pull out' method, and watching it prompted my post. I was watching it and thinking 'Hmmmmm, this is not sending a great message to anyone watching that doesn't know better.' People who are not provided with proper sex ed do often times get it ('it' being potentially incorrect info) from media such as books or movies. I personally received much of my 'sex ed' from books as my parents would not discuss it and the public school did a poor job.
Edit 2: It is not the job of historical dramas/media to educate people about modern sex and relationships, but it is important to have open conversations about such things.
Before losing weight, he treated women well and had a normal And healthy mindset. Now, he almost expects attractive women to want to date with him and gets extremely upset when they turn him down. Extremely upset as in "going to the basement and punching a pillow for God knows how long". He no longer wants to have female friends (another change) unless they dating, saying "why do I have to keep up with a bitchy woman if I'm not fucking her?". Also if we're out and he sees a cute girl walking alone, he's like I'll go ask her out, which I've stopped him from doing because it's a bit much to get asked out when you're shopping for groceries. He follows people on tiktok and Facebook who have been getting arrested for radical views and he's been reflecting that as well. How do I snap him out of this?
EDIT: I'm talking to a mutual friend that's attending the same PhD program and she said there's a girl in class that keeps hyping up his toxic masculinity and she tells him he's the most masculine man she's met. The only time he's told me about her is when he said there's a girl in class that's not worth asking out bc "she's too fat" . I think that accounts for the sudden change in behavior over the last 2 months.
Update: I hung out with him before he travels back to the city he studies at. Brought up a lot of points mentioned here: I asked about steroids and he denied it like his life depended on it, and said it's a compliment I said he's on steroids. I mentioned his mindset and how it won't get him into a healthy relationship, and he said dudes that are jacked get away with anything, which I said no and that was a whole argument. I brought up how saying you're alpha doesn't really mean anything and labeling people in happy relationships as betas is kinda fucked up, he said his dad was alpha and got a lot of women to sleep with him and his dad calls him alpha whenever they talk on the phone (so he's viewing it as a positive thing since his role model, his dad, is calling him that). His dad hates his sister's husband and calls him beta, seems like my buddy learned a few things from his old man. I brought up the girl he talks to in class that calls him masculine, and he said ya she's cool but she won't be anything more than a friend unless she loses at least 20 pounds. Also, he said he stopped watching porn/stopped jacking off so he feels incredibly tense all the time. He said that's something he's noticed and how his personality has been changing since he stopped... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm tired of seeing guys on Reddit and Quora and in real life, stating things like, "Well if that woman would have just gotten an IUD" when she had an unplanned pregnancy, or "They need to provide free IUD's and better education" in countries where many poor people have pregnancies..
Firstly- poor people should be allowed to have babies too.
Secondly-- yes, I support the idea of education and free IUD's and birth control-- but female BC is not just some super easy thing and there is a problem of this being pushed on people. It's not fair to push the problem of systemic poverty and population control solely onto women by pushing them to take the pill and get IUDs. Plus we are constantly told that IUD's and birth control pills are super easy and painless and have no side effects-- and this is a lie. We need honestly from our doctors. Many women have some kind of side effect to birth control pills and this information is still skewed and dishonest. It's so hard to find research regarding mental health and birth control pills. Some studies suggest birth control is strongly correlated to depression, but even with this information, people never want to acknowledge it. They just want to keep women in charge of birth control and not support men's right to birth control. Hey, why aren't there MRA's out there fighting for more male birth control options? hmmm.. I wonder...
Also- IUD's aren't just like, wha bam, super easy breezy. Some women say they barely felt it, but many women say that insertion was extremely painful, some say even the most painful thing they've ever experienced.
I'm tried of the burden of birth control being forced only on women. We need to share this burden with men. Women tend to keep their struggles and pain regarding their female body parts, including trans women who get monthly cramps and PMS type symptoms from hormones. So when we get all these side effects we usually keep it to ourselves and collectively so. We are told our complaints are nothing. We tell our doctors and they shrug in our faces.
You can read here of women complaining about IUD insertion. What's even more sad is we are told pain is so rare and unusual, so they don't even regularly give the pill suppository to soften the cervix the day before, to make insertion easier. They should obviously give it to everyone: [https://www.reddit.com/r/endometriosis/comments/kf4ejh/is_mirena_iud_removal_as_painful_as_insertion/](https://www.reddit.com/r/endometriosis/comments/... keep reading on reddit ➡
I really need to rant.
So yesterday I recreated the new years gaming meme with sparklers, and my post hit #1 on r/all and OH boy. At first I was super happy but the longer it was on /all the more and more hate my post got.
People are insulting me.People are threatening to harm me, kill me, and do all kinds of things to me.People are calling me a karma whore, an internet bitch, because I post on r/gaming as a female.
Because. Of. Fake. Internet. Points. And. Because. I. am. A. Women.
While there is alot of positive comments the bad ones really are just gut punching. I know this is the internet and it is cruel but why do men always feel the need to insult a girls just because they plays video games or say things like " OH WELL ITS A GIRL IN THE POST ! SHE DOESNT DESERVE THE UPVOTES ! STUPID SIMPS bla bla bla bla ". Like cmon. What the heck is wrong with some people. They act like women gaming is a rare thing. ITS NOT.
My post wasn't showing any cleavage, it was just me sitting in my chair with a god dam sparkler, but I guess guys will always be butt hurt because 'tHey COulDnt GeT tHAt MaNy FakE InTerNet PoinTS BeCausE ThEy are GuyS.'
Expecting more butthurt DM's from guys from this but I really had to get this off my chest because I am genuienly scared.
Thanks for reading my rant.

To give them a taste of their own medicine. ‘When he gets angry, his tasty bulge shakes up and down’ ‘his 16inch testes is long enough to penetrate into his anus and reach the g spot’ ‘when he shivers, all his follicles turn into tiny foreskin’ Is there anything else you’d like me to add?
I was watching 90 day fiancé the other day, and it got me thinking about how everyone usually feels sorry for the dudes getting scammed for money or a visa. But the thing is, most of these guys are using the women just as much as the women are using them. They either want their youth, beauty, big fake tits, or they have a weird fetish for the ethnicity of the woman. Same goes for women who do the same (like Danielle and Mohammed) though they aren’t shown as often. She could’ve easily found some wonky eyed dude who would love her in the states but she went for MoeMoe and was surprised when she got scammed. Point is, gold diggers and the people who date them deserve each other 99% of the time becuase they’re both shitty people taking advantage of one another.
Edit; thanks everyone! If another person says It’s none of my business please keep in mind these people are on a reality show and choose to broadcast their relationship to the world, so it’s public business now.
Edit: after reading some comments I’ve changed my mind, I now believe if the “hot” person in this situation is in poverty, they are very much not shitty people and doing what they need to do to survive, and the “rich” one in this situation would be even dumber for not recognizing this
I’ve been feeling like shit for a few days now. I’ve had a consistent fever along with that crappy overall sick feeling. I got tested for COVID and it returned negative and I saw my PCP who thought it was just the flu. I thought she was probably right, so I thought nothing of it. Then, today, I get this horrible fucking pain in my lower abdomen and I’m convinced I’m having a heart attack because my chest was tight and I felt like I was going to pass out. I yelled at my husband “AMBULANCE NOW!!” When the paramedics arrived they told him I was probably just having an anxiety attack and they see this all the time in women. Then, when they took my blood pressure it was 196/132 and my heart rate was 173. They took it THREE FUCKING TIMES while I lay there thinking I was going to die. Only then, when they saw it wasn’t a fluke, did they hurry and get me to the hospital. Turns out I have sepsis and am spending the holidays in the hospital.
I just don’t understand why these paramedics, all men, went straight to “she’s having an anxiety attack like all women” instead of taking this seriously. Where do they come off telling my husband that it’s all in my head? I wish I could tell them my diagnosis and save other women this bullshit.
Edit: Wow! I did not expect this to gain so much traction! Thank you to everyone who contributed to this post. For some more background, I think part of the reason it really settled badly with me is because I’m immunocompromised (which I told them), and have multiple autoimmune diseases (which I told them) including fibrosis of the liver (which again I told them). Knowing all of this, they failed to take my condition seriously. I don’t expect them to diagnosis me because I’d have never thought it was sepsis from a kidney infection, but showing some concern and not seemingly brushing it off is frustrating when I felt like I was literally in that moment dying. My husband and I will be filing a complaint and I truly hope they do something to change the way they treat women.
Thank you also for the well wishes! It sucks to be in the hospital, but I’m grateful for the care and compassion the nurses and doctors have shown me. Hopefully I respond well to the antibiotics and the pain let’s up!!
Edit2: To the person who felt compelled to direct message me simply to insult me, I’m sorry someone peed in your hot chocolate. Happy holidays, you one layered lasagna.
Edit3: To the person who wished that I will die from sepsis, you really need... keep reading on reddit ➡
If you were a woman you would most likely be an average looking woman with an average body like the most of us. You would have dreams and plans for the future that might be in danger if you started posting explicit content of yourself online, just like the most of us. Stop pretending selling explicit content is something easy and simple everyone can just do and earn a significant amount of money at the same time.
And what is stopping you from making your own onlyfans right now? Yeah there isn't a huge demand for straight guys posting stuff for women. But you could post gay content. "But I'm not gay, I'm not attracted to guys". That's completely fine you don't have to! But realize that the women who post pictures of themselves to onlyfans are most likely not attracted to their followers either, they are not posting for people who they sexually prefer or find attractive.
Or then just come up with something new women would like to pay for and give it a try. But that wouldn't be easy enough, right? You would just like to take a picture of yourself in the morning in the bathroom mirror and have money thrown at you. Well that's not how it works for any of us.
It's not as easy and as simple as many men make it up to be. So stop pretending you would be a millionaire if only you were a woman.
For instance, women with short hair - not shoulder length, but like pixie cut style - seem to be very niche, and not too many of them out there. But those who are, I find very attractive. Kind of a shame most of them are into women. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Forgive me for my English if it's bad (not a native speaker)
Recently my girlfriend had her first child. A healthy baby boy at seven-pounds.
So for these past nine months, I've been taking care of her. But staying with her throughout the day, I realized how hard it is on a woman to have a living-being living inside her.
It's like almost every day in her nine-month pregnancy was difficult. She often had foot pain and calve pain. So i massaged her feet/calves daily. Her back would pain terribly, she would cry almost every day due to the pain being unbearable. Hence I would give her a back massage to help soothe the pain a bit,
She always had Fatigue and felt tired. She is an extremely energetic and joyous, active person. But when she was in her pregnancy she'd rest often and she would want to work but couldn't because she didn't have the energy.
Every day she would vomit (also morning sickness) and I'd be by her side and rub her back and calm her down and say "it's alright, it's alright"
She went through a LOT. Personally in the beginning I never knew how hard it is on a woman. Back when i was young. But now that I'm older and mature I understand that what a woman goes through when pregnant isn't easy. If I was a mother I wouldn't want to go through the pain and the struggle. If your pregnant now or you've been before, that means you are brave and courageous!
Take care everyone, once again please forgive my bad English :)
