I remember that and it made me so mad! Like, I don’t care what she was doing, she was a child and her childhood was taken away. I thank God everyday I was able to grow to adulthood and not have someone take advantage of my overly-developed body*
When the tape of him peeing on a girl came out, I heard many people (both men and women) try to justify saying that she didn’t look like a child and she was probably fast. And my response was always, you wouldn’t make that excuse if she was your daughter.
Fuck you. I lived in New York, made more than 30,000 and every day was a struggle because housing costs ate most of my income. And before you try the “move to another city” argument, I worked for the City of New York and therefore needed to be where my job was. And I had a roommate. Any place that I could have moved…
I would never blame the victim
If you are unable to understand my clearly written, thoughtfully executed reply, then you are part of the problem

If it makes you feel better, my period is heavier, longer, and with terrible cramps with my copper IUD. And I still wouldn’t trade it in

I second the exercise rec
I turned on my computer (instead of just scrolling on my phone) just to write to you and encourage you to go to the job fair.
Happy someone said it because all I could think while reading this was, “why engage when blocking is easy?”
Say it louder for the people in the back
My mother taught me that you don’t have to look poor even if you are poor. And we were/ are poor. This meant knowing how to pick items from low cost stores that were still well cut and well fitted. Or going to discount stores like Century 21 for marked down designer items. I make pennies, but my wardrobe would never…
Who was the other president?
Fuck that nonsense. The cheater is the person that promised fidelity. Unless the mistress has a personal relationship with the wife or girlfriend, ALL of the anger and betrayal belongs to the man who decided to step out. As Violent mentioned upthread, there is an unfair tradition of the woman who the man cheats with…
Its so the algorithm learns what you are interested in and then show you more of it during the search function. Basically, it’s a way to curate your feed without following everything and finding new stuff
I read that American eggs are washed, which removes the protective coating and therefore have to be refrigerated. However, eggs in the EU are not washed the same way and still have the protective coating and should not refrigerated because the coating will encourage the growth of bacteria in a cool, moist environment.…
Thank you! I hate when I’m in a group of international people and they are speaking English because they all know that is the only language I’m fluent in. (Though I am currently busting my ass to become fluent in another so I can finally leave my current job)
