I think original comment was made in good faith and not with the intention of “they are confused because they only think they want to be a boy/girl/man/woman”.

Anyone marrying into the royal family is supposed to be so incredibly thankful for the chance to be associated with them that they give their entire future to The Country. They’re Read more

I can’t believe everyone defending the people who recline ! If you recline, you are taking up space into someone else’s space. Therefore, you are an inconsiderate monster!

Try a dry curry. There’s very little added liquid - just a smidge of very very hot fat to make the spices stick - and it does not get slimy. I’m trying to remember where I got a recipe but I can’t remember because the last I did it was years ago, but it included a basic curry powder, onion, a drywdered mango (I used a Read more

That being said, the general consensus amongst people, trans and cis, who are not either predatory or going out of their way to be lesbophobic and/or play weird “gotcha” games with Read more
