I'm a brown woman and I felt tiny bits of racism lately, after being a decade in North America. So I posted on a local Facebook mommy group however admin banned the post. She said our town is not racist and trivialized my experience. She gave me advice on how to talk to people etc instead.
After I questioned her why can't I ask other brown women if they have experienced this or why can't my voice have a platform to share my experience - she eventually banned me from the group (she's a white woman)
Question: is she being racist by not letting me validate/post my racism experience?
New to Reddit and tried to post on many different pages but am unable to due to not having karma. How does someone new start?
We have a debate going on, One person in our office says she Regularly deworms herself but the rest of us have not ever heard of this happening
So i need to ask, Do you regularly deworm yourself?
It's ridiculous that we have kids waking up at 5 and 6 am to sit in the dark outside the bus stop every day, especially teenagers who are developing rapidly and need the most sleep out of anyone, and it's scientifically proven that making kids wake up this early isn't good for their health or development, why hasn't there been a push to put to start times Later?
Ok hear me out. So let's sat someone habitually steals my lunch. I don't do drugs and never have. BUT if I were to go get meth or cocaine or something, and put it in my lunch and leave it, and someone else eats it and overdoses, am I liable for a crime?
No I'm not planning on doing this. Just a curiosity. Would there be any crime? They could drug test me and find my blood clean. He or she could admit to stealing my lunch (though it would be unlikely to be believed) and overdosing. But if nothing was intentional on my part, I didn't give it to them then...?
Edit: to be very very clear I'm not planning on doing this lol I'm a writer.
Edit 2: what if there was a big obnoxious poison warning on it and they ate it anyway? And switch out meth for some other more conventional poison.
Edit 3: ok so a lot of people think I'm mentally unhinged lol. I've said it a ton of times. I'm not going to do anything. I'm a writer! It's character info. I don't have my lunch stolen. I work in a private office and no one has access to it. I know killing is wrong. I don't do drugs. Earl grey is the hardest thing I use.
Edit 4: ok what about something really spicy like Carolina reaper or ghost peppers?
Whenever I draw with them, I feel like they slide around on the paper easier than the other colors.
In the Bible “acceptable” marriage was often between a man and his sister or a man and his hundreds of concubines. Sometimes it was even between a man and his sex slaves (from war).
Why do people claim that Biblical Marriage is only between a man and a woman if the Bible allowed for polygamy?
I have a masters degree, and at my first job it feels like i know virtually nothing in the field
From the smoke etc, I guess it probably smelt like smoke too.
Everyone I know, across any age spectrum, hates using touchscreens in the car, especially as the driver. With a touch screen, you have to directly look at the screen for longer periods of time to ensure you touch the right 'button' and that the screen reads it correctly. Not only that, but you have to navigate through more menus and screens to get to the thing you need to change.
With older cars, using real buttons for radio, climate control, etc, you can largely navigate by feel and barely glance down at what you need to change, finishing it out by feel. This is obviously much safer, faster, and just easier to use even if you aren't having to deal with driving at the same time.
So why do the manufacturers keep using the touchscreens? Is it cheaper? If so, and the demand/desire for analog buttons is as high as I anecdotally see, why doesn't one of the manufacturers get smart and sell us a car we want to use? Surely the extra demand would outweigh the very slight cost of extra buttons. Plus they wouldn't have to pay to design a horrible UI!
I guess I'm just confused as to why they insist on this horrible idea. (If there's a better place to ask this let me know)
Edit* some people are pointing out that backup cameras are required on all new cars, which helps explain why all new cars have screens in general. But it doesn't really answer my question.
Sure it may be cheaper to throw all the rest of your interface buttons on the screen, but personally I would pay more for a car with analog buttons for everything else besides backup camera. My desire anecdotally represents demand for this, so I imagine a profit can likely be made on it, why are none of them doing this?
My grandfather is the guy photo bombing, and pushing the wheeled bench. This is at the 1940 World's Fair.
There was a random reel on Instagram of a female comedian. I didn't find the bit funny but with comedy being subjective, I can't say it's outright not funny.
A friend of mine (might become more of an acquaintance soon) that showed it to me immediately went to, "That's so misogynistic. Just because she's a woman!?"
"Uh, no...I just didn't find the bit funny..."
"Why do guys hate all female comedians!? Women can be funny, too!"
"You're right. They can be. I've watched a ton of specials that had me cracking up that were women doing comedy..."
She was upset for a bit and didn't really bring it back up.
Am I the asshole here? Honestly?
I hate this bullshit that because some guys out there will always say, "women aren't funny" that automatically lumps me in if a woman had ONE bit that I didn't think was funny.
So as the title states, if someone who is a registered sex offender requires witness protection, say for being a witness against someone from the Mob or another extremely violent group, would their new identity be registered?
If so, it would be kind of easy to find them, if someone really wanted to. They would just have to look at registered sex offenders, which have the person's photo as well as home address, I believe?(Correct me if I'm wrong)
It would require some time and dedication to search through all the registered sex offenders, but the Mob will do anything to silence a witness.
Like i get that you dont want to have the screen burned into, but why not just have the screen turn off after the same amount of time that triggers the screensaver? Surely that would be more power efficient wouldn’t it? Why did that only start after the screen saver era
No this isn't me trying to be racist. In fact I heard many ask this question & I brushed it off thinking it was some lame stereotype about Indian people. However a lot of the time when I'm in a store & walk past Indian men I do smell their B.O. It happened more & more until I thought that perhaps it isn't a stereotype & there might actually be a cultural reason for it or maybe something else entirely.
