My coworker is one of those people who likes to be a nosybody and ask everyone about their lives. I was talking to her one day in a way that I had never done before——sat down for more than a minute. She kept talking to me about her kids and how proud she was, etc., etc. Then she started talking about how I need to “get out there” and “live [my] life” and “your future husband is waiting for you”. And I said, “Nah, I’m not really interested in that.” And I think her brain broke. She leaned in a little. “Are…are you gay?” Wasn’t offensive, she just seemed taken aback. And I wondered if she had never in her life, after all these youth groups she says she’s volunteered in, stopped to consider that she shouldn’t be using language that implies everyone is straight and looking for a partner. I shrugged and said, “No, I’m just not interested in that sort of thing.” And I saw the gears grinding and the circuits shooting sparks in her head. She didn’t seem to be able to comprehend anything other than straight or gay, and definitely couldn’t comprehend “not looking for a partner”. Thought it was an interesting story to share. About visibility, I suppose. This was the first time I had encountered it, and I hadn’t even technically “come out” or anything like that. Thought it was funny.

Tbh I would like to taste new flavors. The modern popular flavor profiles get so boring after a while. I think it's interesting that there are probably millions of flavor profiles that could be combined, but each culture tends to stick to a very small set.

I looked it up again to check the info, but the article I read a few years ago seems to have vanished beneath a pile of new info. "Garum" was the word that popped up most often, though I distinctly reading about a fish sauce that can no longer be made because the fish went extinct. If it's actually garum, then I'm wrong, and so was the article I read about it a few years ago.

My experience with polyamory is some guy demanding my attention every day, then him still talking to other women while ignoring me when I do actually initiate conversation, then coming back and trying to demand my attention again when I'm not interested. So yeah, I agree with you. People (mostly men) just use it as an excuse to see other people without consequences in their "primary" relationship. I've tried to understand polyamory by researching it; I've tried to fit my own experiences in the context of it; I do not understand it. I don't understand how anyone with self-respect could allow it. I know there will be polyamorous people who will be offended or try to explain it, but it will not change my mind. Every explanation of it just sounds like a non-relationship with extra steps.

There was a fish sauce that Romans used to eat. It was similar to ketchup. No one is sure what the recipe was precisely, but accounts say it was delicious. Even if we had the complete recipe, we would never be able to make it. The Romans ate so much of it that the fish species they made it from went extinct.

I adore Black Desert for more things than it’s combat system, and yes I also hate tab target. But I find that the overwhelming majority of people I’ve talked to who are die hard AA fans love tab target and despise anything else. It’s never a welcoming feeling in this community to talk about non-tab-target (I have no idea why it’s such a triggering topic for people), so I approach the subject gingerly.

It feels solid, like each swing and spell has weight. The camera stays relatively close compared to other games, to give that in-your-face feeling with combat. And the screen vibrates for certain things that make sense, like if you’re near a large moving object or you’re casting a particularly powerful spell, so it immerses you more.

What I like is how this mindset can easily perpetuate victim blaming, but no one is going to come down on you for this comment because of the way you've phrased it. It's just obscure enough for people not in the know to be unable to connect the dots. Since you said something like "looking at other people's traumas helps keep yours in perspective" and not "other people have it worse, so you should be grateful that you don't have to go through that", yours is okay to someone skimming through it. But it's the same message, is it not? Yet one is phrased so mildly as to not incite rage and the other makes people instantly upset.

The processes that maintain your physical body decay into other processes affected by the surrounding environment. Matter is eaten and converted into other matter. Heat escapes to the air. Electrical impulses that keep your brain creating thoughts stop firing, and the nerves decay alongside the other matter. It doesn’t meant that the physical matter of your body suddenly turns into something that is not-matter at the moment of death.

It is 100% a made up media thing. Saying someone is from a specific “generation” describes very little about them unless there was some shared experience specifically of an age group less than 10 years apart and of the same magnitude as the Great Depression or the World Wars. Great Recession for Gen X and Millenials, I suppose, but there’s just the thing; the Great Recession fell between both generations, so it describes neither. COVID doesn’t affect a specific age-related population, so that isn’t a generational thing. It’s just a bad, nebulous form of “measurement” or description.

It’s frustrating to see someone encountering similar shit that you have; but where you could identify that something was fucked up and actively sought to fix your situation, the other person is throwing up their hands, shrugging, and saying “that’s the way it is, I just have to put up with this.” Never mind that this “naivety” and shrugging of shoulders from other women has actively perpetuated abuse that I personally have endured. Dismissing the problem (or “excusing his behavior”) and continuing to reward shitty men doesn’t hurt only that one woman in the “relationship”. Collectively, learn to do better.

Brave was a bit of a disappointment of a movie, but Merida is a great character. I love that she had this great ability to relate to the men on their level. But it was never capitalized on in the plot. She could have spoken to the suitors and assessed that all of them didn’t want this marriage. And then she could have spoken against it with all the guys supporting her against their parents. But they didn’t do that, and it was a real missed opportunity.

I don’t know your experience, and I’m not your therapist, but there a few inklings in here that make me think your therapist is talking about trying to reduce your anxiety. I’m a woman and I go walking in the middle of the night. Am I tempting fate? Sure, I guess. But I feel really safe in my area. I feel anxious about driving, but I still have to do it, even if I would much prefer to hop on a train everywhere. You can’t control what the world is like. All you can do is take steps to protect yourself from its shittiness.

I think you’re thinking of “narrator as a character”. There’s different levels of narration, from being a non-entity to being a character within the story to being a character part of the story but not in the story. Your example would be the last one. An similar example I can think of is the Narrator from The Stanley Parable. He sounds exactly like what you’re describing. A character in his own right, but we never see or play him. Another example is Lemony Snicket from A Series of Unfortunate Events. He is a character within that universe, but we never see him and the protagonists never interact with him. Both of those stories/game are well loved. And this type of narration allows for the injection of some sort of comedy. You use it well in your example.

>> Maybe the dude was just clueless to the entire situation. She didn’t know that and neither do we. She can only assume intention, and the intention of some unknown man walking right up to a woman alone, bench or no bench, is often not good. She had every right to stand up for herself in that situation. We can’t judge “creepiness” from a post online; there are many subtle cues that even the woman probably wasn’t aware of that checked off her “creep” boxes, so she didn’t realize they were worth mentioning to some person reading her post and waiting to judge her. Too many women have been raped and/or killed because they doubted their instincts. Better to be perceived as a “bitch” and scare the potential creep away than to sit there and act nice and take the bullshit so much that the creep thinks you are an easy target. She did the right thing for her own safety. The man’s “actual intentions” *do not matter* here.

Yeah I do this with my therapist. I will literally forget a terrible thing that happened to me two days ago. So instead I write down the event after it happens and send it to my therapist immediately. That way she is aware of why I might be in a weird emotional state that day, or why when she asks how my week was, I’ll say “not great” but I don’t remember why I feel worse than usual. It’s like trying to take inventory of your emotional states throughout the week and putting it all in a summary report, but several important files got locked away in a box that got shoved under a desk somewhere.

I don’t know where you live, but I know some states have managed COVID well enough that it was deemed safe to unmask. Do you live in one of those? If so, you shouldn’t feel freaked out about it. I get it, I’m a germaphobe, but even I have been to Disney, Universal, Hershey Park, and multiple other public places without a mask, all this year. People are more worried about the flu this year than COVID. So by all means, keep looking after your health, but be aware that the flu is the major issue to worry about right now, so any precautions you take against that in a normal year will be just as effective for you as they always have been. Have you always work a mask to protect against the flu? If not, you can take it off and you’ll probably have the same result you’ve had every year.

But advertising for it is still stuck in the 1940s. Like much other advertising. It seems like there were these advertising methods that were invented in the mid 20th century that keep being taught today without accounting for how things have modernized. I was having another discussion about how places keep advertising that they’re “family friendly” too, like that’s a brand new big thing to be proud of. Everywhere is family friendly now. It’s not a big deal like the advertisers seem to think it is. It was a big deal in the 1940s when most places were not family friendly. And yet the advertising “-ism” stuck.

I like to 3D model a lot, and I do my best to take ADA accommodations into account, plus whatever I can think of that isn’t mentioned by the ADA. So I hope the challenge of modeling a city wouldn’t be too much for me to overlook while designing it. :)

The way you phrased it “I had to smoke outside” was like you thought this wasn’t already an expectation. I’m not on a high horse when I’m asthmatic and I constantly see and smell people smoking upwind, and I have to cover my nose or redirect my path just to get away from the thing that literally makes me choke. I know smokers say they’re cognizant about it, but it’s not enough in my experience. So I have no problem reminding them of that. You said all your friends, but I want to make sure you’re aware that just because someone might not say shit directly to you doesn’t mean they’re okay with it.

I really do wish our public transportation was better. Getting around D.C. is fabulous with the Metro, but getting anywhere else in the state is decidedly not fabulous. In no way would I propose something like a rail line to, say, Eastern Shore, because that would destroy some of the vibe of the area (though maybe just one train to the outskirts of Ocean City, or even just to Salisbury). But we can expand between D.C. and Baltimore, and we can try to reinitiate the old rail lines to Western Maryland.

I believe in the 1920s or so society was more pro-childfree. Fewer places allowed children. And that was the norm (“seen but not heard”). We’ve actually become *more* “family friendly” (places started advertising this because there were fewer places that allowed kids before). Now we’ve swung the other way where everywhere is “kid friendly” or “family friendly” and there are few escapes for adults. It’s amazing how much changed.

Yeah if you check the CP “titles” (Baron, Viscount, etc.) you can see where the grind bunches up. It’s not a huge gap for the two levels below Viscount (where I’m at), but the gap between Viscount and the next title is ENORMOUS. You can tell the grind *really* slows down at this CP. The speed boosts seem to come in basically whenever you unlock a new equipment type (alch stone, relics, harmony stone, etc.), and those are gated by story quests (which are gated by CP). I’m able to enter a new Chaos Rift Zone at least, but those are minor boosts by comparison.

There are still plenty of stalls like that, and I loathe them. The funny thing is places that have such small stalls can usually afford to remove a few of them and give a little breathing room to the remainder. They aren’t seeing crowds enormous enough to necessitate packing in stalls. Only places I can think of that actually do need it are stadiums and theaters.

Right, it’s set apart in such a way that it’s wheelchair accessible; has the handrail for people who need it for balance issues (i.e. wheelchair bound, people on crutches, elderly, pregnant women); and most I’ve seen that have room have the baby changing station inside the big stall instead of outside any stalls. No one is an asshole for using it if they feel they need it. It’s there to accommodate, not to restrict. That’s like saying no one outside of a wheelchair can use the ramp into a building; we all know ramps have more uses than that, and that able bodied people like to use them too.

The Eastern Shore is really a completely different world from the D.C.-Baltimore corridor. And then Western Maryland is a completely different vibe from both too. - Eastern Shore = laid back, rural, small towns (except Salisbury and Ocean City). - D.C.-Baltimore = suburbs suburbs suburbs and highways galore; modernity everywhere. - Western Maryland = historical Maryland that isn’t Annapolis; also mountains; still rural, perhaps more so than eastern shore, but with historical towns dotting the landscape. Everywhere else = farms. But I wouldn’t expect someone outside the state to know that. I think the only other state I’ve heard is similar is Washington.

Depended on the teacher. Elementary school teachers were more strict about it, I suppose because they were trained to teach these social rules. By middle school, yeah, the teachers don’t care as much. The kids are going to behave how they want to behave, and only got involved if it escalated. By high school people stopped acting like animals and most understood that the line had a purpose and everyone was served better if they followed it.

I…I’m not sure what point he was trying to prove by doing that. Was the point that you shouldn’t take advantage even if you’re offered? That’s like the concept of “to catch a predator” where the catchers bait people online by pretending to be teenage girls, and then when the boys bite they call them out as predators. As far as I’m aware, that concept does not hold up as a good strategy for getting people in front of a court because the defendant can just argue that it wouldn’t have happened if the catchers hadn’t placed the bait at all. So what strategy is this applying here? What is it teaching? Seems like all it’s doing is humiliating the people who DIDN’T step up because it makes them look dumb for not taking a free offer. I suppose they had been exposed to this kind of trick prior, and knew not to fall for the bait, but outside of that context it doesn’t make sense. I’m really struggling to see what this accomplished.

Unfortunately the way geography and history are taught in the U.S. is dogwater, even in the best schools. It’s because the Eurocentrism overinflates the importance of European history compared to the rest of the world. Really throws off the impact of other regions/continents (minimizes it), and perception of size of Europe (maximizes it). I liked history in school but it’s really irksome at 31 to read about events through the lens of another region and realize how little or poorly an event or culture was taught in school (or skipped entirely). For example, I’m learning about Ukraine now to write articles for work. I don’t recall learning a single thing about Eastern Europe in school. Nothing about their history, nothing about their culture, nothing about their politics. Eastern Europe was always some pawn in a game played between Russia and Western Europe and nothing more. That’s the way it’s taught in the U.S. Even now, people view Russia as this big superpower that has always existed, but Russia is only a bit older than the U.S. Or think that Russia is providing all the resources for surrounding countries. No. *Ukraine* is actually far older. *Ukraine* can exist without Russia. Russia needs *them*. And much of the history of Eastern Europe is a tale of Vikings and Turks. Two cultures that I am also very interested in, but had never heard this part about before! People are only taught Viking exploration in terms of how they impacted England (and some Canada), but they did SO MUCH to influence Eastern Europe, and that wasn’t covered at all! It makes me mad. >:( I feel like a lot of names of empires were thrown out in class as “this was important”, but we were only thrown a few fragmented scraps about why they were important and not anything substantial that would make us truly realize *why* on our own.

I didn’t even think about that, asking them to compare coast to coast. I sometimes forget how small European countries are. The size of states or less. Can travel across England in a day. That just makes it wild though how much history we learn every Western European country then. Imagine thousands of years of war and revolution in a single state in the U.S., and that’s treated like a big deal that shaped the world and made other countries much larger than them study it. The way European history is taught makes it seem like they are the world and not just a tiny patch that you can drive across in a day.

For a country so large, it’s all pretty uniform. And given how Hollywood and movies and the internet in general connect us to all sorts of different ways of speaking around the U.S., the standard “California accent” as people call it is what is sticking. Whatever type of speech celebrities use, pretty much, and they’re all in California. Though it’s worth noting that essentially the accent on the East and West coast of the United States have tended to be the same throughout U.S. history, as far as I’m aware. Probably because the coasts are the most populated, and anyone moving around the country just moves from one coast to the other, carrying the same accent and customs with them. It’s when you hit the Midwest that everyone starts sounding a little different.

Same in the United States. And cutting was discouraged. “Single file, no need to rush, we’re all going to the same place.” And if the teacher saw a kid cut, the kid got sent to the back of the line. I’m sure the “why wouldn’t you take advantage” mentality in other countries is what drives some people in English speaking countries to try the same thing wherever they go, but in the English speaking countries it’s definitely considered *severely fucking disrespectful* of everyone in the entire line.

And yeah, I’m rolling my eyes at the people in r/fuckcars who can’t comprehend that there are places that will never be easily accessible by train, but I’m also rolling my eyes at the people here who refuse to see that car dependent infrastructure is *really fucking bad* for urban (and dense suburban) living. North American transportation infrastructure is dogshit, and anyone actively against improving it is spitting in the face of people who could really benefit from changes——including yourself.

/r/fantasywriters/comments/zdoedw/can_two_of_my_characters_have_similar_names/iz3ctfw/

I think the problem would come in if you have a character who has a name that could be seen as a nickname for a real name that another character has. For example, if you have one character whose name is “Elizabeth” and another whose name is “Beth”. Sometimes Beth is a name on its own, and sometimes it’s a nickname for Elizabeth. And if you don’t make it very clear that these are two completely different characters from the start, and you will ALWAYS be using this specific name for them, then it can be confusing and frustrating for the reader if or when they discover the difference later in the plot.

I guess no safety feature is better than any safety feature. /s Lots of people responding who seem to have never driven in absolute pouring rain; they’re just taking the image posted at face value. The image on the screen is a *hell* of a lot better than what’s visible through the windshield, and for the conditions this would be used in, a “one second” delay is fine (I see no delay, btw, so I don’t know what they mean by that either). Add a heat sensor for deer coming at you through the woods on either side of the road and we have something invaluable.

/r/childfree/comments/zcyfjs/do_you_think_wanting_exclusively_childfree_spaces/iyzfye2/

I think a lot of comments are arguing semantics and not reality. The reality is that women *are* the primary caregivers of children, whether we like it that way or not. And then to say that kids shouldn’t be allowed in certain places also means that the person taking care of them (the mother) can’t be in certain places, *unless she can afford childcare*. And then in that sense, it’s turning the issue into one of class too. Poor mothers would suffer the most. That’s the fear, and it’s legitimate. For there to be a childfree space the parents won’t argue about, it would have to be a space they would never want to bring their children to or go to themselves. Like a horror house or a laboratory or something. The point is no one can win here with the way the current system is. We need to achieve more social equality and make men pull more weight in the home before any of these tangential problems can be resolved. Or else this argument will just continue because the root cause is never addressed.

Same. People will say “oh this celebrity is so hot” and I will literally have ZERO understanding of how or why they came to that conclusion. For example: if you show a picture of Henry Cavill to an allosexual, the first thing out of their mouth will probably be that he is hot or attractive or launch into things he has done that attracted him. When you show ME, a demisexual, a picture of Henry Cavill, I will say that he looks [sad, annoyed, happy] in that picture. And then I’ll start talking about his acting and stunt work in The Witcher.

Obviously everyone is different. But from my own personal experience and from the experiences people tell on this sub, not feeling an initial “spark” of sexual attraction is a core demisexual trait. Allosexuals claim to feel a “spark” in a way that demisexuals generally do not experience.

Yeah that's what I'm saying. Listen to other people about how to drain a joint account. I had a joint account with my dad (opened when I was 15), but there was no money in it, so I didn't have to deal with that. Thankfully my first job asked for an account that was not joint, so I already had my own private account set up with all my money in it. Going to continue for anyone else reading the comment chain: Once all the money is out of the joint account, clean up your other accounts too. Any email accounts you might have shared with her, make sure none of your new accounts link back to it. Change everything. Go through every single one of your accounts and think through your online history to make sure you haven't forgotten any. \- Separate email (THIS IS IMPORTANT) \- Separate bank accounts or even separate banks or other financial institution entirely (some tellers can't keep their mouth shut, especially if they're already friendly with your parents; they can't comprehend that people and parents they know might be abusive) \- Separate credit/debit cards \- Separate any account where money comes in, where money flows out, and the methods by which you authenticate who has access to those accounts (this is why having a separate email should be your first step, if you don't have one already; and you guard the login info to that email with your life---you don't tell ANYONE a damn thing about how to log into it, not your parents, not your spouse, not your kids, no matter how much you think you can trust someone) \- Use multi-factor authentication wherever possible. This means using your email or your phone (text message) as a verification method. You can also tell your financial institution to put a password on your account so that whenever someone calls to try to access your account, they have to know the password. You don't tell ANYONE that password. ONLY YOU should know it, ever. \- Another step that is easy to overlook but just as important: don't leave gaps in your access to your stuff that other people can fill. What do I mean by that? I mean that you need to establish an account, email, and phone number with any new accounts you open up with an institution. That may seem counterintuitive to keeping your information private and not spreading it all over the internet, but here's the thing...if you don't fill those gaps in an institution's profile of you, someone else will. When I first started working, I didn't want to make an online profile for my bank or retirement or health insurance because I saw no reason to spread my information online for hackers to get. However, since I lived with my parents, my work mail got sent to my parents' house. (Because of this, I really wish that workplaces would make it CRYSTAL clear what PRECISELY they are going to use or send to an address you give them, because some \[young or abused\] people DO NOT UNDERSTAND the importance of having a separate physical address, and think that everything MUST go to the place they are currently living----I could have set up a P.O. box if I had understood the difference!) My dad, given this info on how to make these accounts, set them up for me. I was totally unaware. So he basically committed identity theft in order to set up an account in my name and check my info "for me". Years later, there are still usernames and passwords and other things that I cannot change because he created them first, did not consult me, and the institution claims that they cannot change the information themselves. So he screwed me over for that, leaving me with usernames and other info that I did not create and therefore will not remember myself. Even if you tell the institution that the accounts were made without your permission, they will not change it. Luckily, so far, I've been able to change the emails and passwords. But the effect of what my dad did lingers, and I hope that he doesn't create another profile on something that I cannot restrict access to later (i.e. changing the email and password again to one only I have access to). So in summary, when you sign up for a new financial account, or any account, make sure that business has all the contact info they need to fill out your profile. Give them, at minimum, your email address and your phone number as your definitive personal contact information; because if you don't, someone else can. Don't leave those gaps wide open. Giving them your contact info tells them "this is me, this is my contact info, and you have to contact me via one of these (multi-factor authentication) in order for me to grant permission to change anything else about my account". It's hard, but it's possible. Just take it one step at a time.

As someone who had terribly controlling parents, I can't imagine volunteering a single scrap of information to them unless they have me backed into some kind of corner. The moment I was away from them physically (college), I did what I wanted and didn't tell them a damn thing. Never crossed my mind a single moment that I might tell my parents about my day, because it wasn't their business. I can't fathom why on earth people feel the need to tell their parents anything about their lives unless they're literally unable to hide it from their parents' eyes somehow or their parents have them at gunpoint.

I was in the same situation. When I bought my own place, I used it as an excuse to remove them from all of my accounts that they thought they had a right to access (credit card, bank, retirement; my dad wanted his grubby hands in every single one of my financial accounts to “watch” and “make sure I wasn’t going crazy with my spending”; yes he is an asshole control freak). My dad threw a fit, but the fact is he is a complete and utter dipshit when it comes to technology, and he can’t do shit about anything if I keep all of my records electronically. Then when he asked me if I changed my password, I would just say “no I don’t know how that happened” and he would be confused and wander off. He would try calling the company a few times, and I would magically find the password to give to him so he could check it once while I was standing next to him, then the moment he logged out I would change it again. He eventually stopped bothering because he got frustrated that it kept happening. I recommend getting absolutely everything stuffed into an electronic account, password and two-factor authenticated so that she can’t see or get a hold of it. Technology is a beautiful thing, especially when it comes to locking out idiots who refuse to learn it.

If the marriage ends up going through, do you think it would be possible to make that man jump through many hoops to please you? Like “Oh, I can’t be comfortable unless the house is clean. I must clean it first. (waste time)” “I must know the refrigerator is fully stocked (i.e. make him spend money).” “I must prepare long meals (waste time).” “I must go out and find the best food for meals. It takes hours.” “The bed must be cleaned before we have sex. Oh look, we’re all out of time in the day. Time to sleep.” “I must fully prepare for x thing you want me to do. (delay, delay, delay.)” Make yourself really troublesome to have around as opposed to him divorcing you? Anything to delay time spent with him or establish really high standards for living? Or would that get you killed for being too picky or something? What about weaponizing incompetence, like a lot of men do? “Oops I used bleach on the rug again.” “Oops I burned dinner.” Malicious, malicious, malicious compliance. All this to buy time to escape.

If it’s useful in court, do you think you could do these things?: - direct any emails to a folder that is not your inbox; send whatever is in those inbox (without reading them) to your lawyer - set your text messages to ignore so that you are not notified, but still receive them; do not open them yourself; hand the phone to your lawyer to open them and read them; ask the lawyer to close it before handing the phone back to you That way the messages get to court, but bypass you?

Same, giving side eye to people who claim it’s simple. Like sure, I can understand someone seeing an overlap between obesity and insulin and being like “there must be some connection!” Yeah, there probably is, but more likely in a correlative way than a causative way. Not all people who have Type 2 diabetes are obese, and not all people who are obese have Type 2 diabetes. I believe the statistic is something like “obesity raises your risk for diabetes by 30%”, or at least that’s the one I’ve seen quoted ad nauseum. And a quick google search says 10% of people have Type 2 diabetes. So that means the percent of people who are *likely to* both develop Type 2 diabetes and be obese is 13%. That’s 87% of obese people who do not have Type 2 diabetes. Another calculation, let’s see if it’s similar. The NIH says 8 out of 10 people who have Type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese. The CDC says 1 in 10 Americans has Type 2 diabetes. So that means out of 10% of Americans who definitely have Type 2 diabetes, 80% of that subset is people who are overweight or obese. Eighty percent of ten is 8%. Eight percent of Americans (and given that’s a large enough data set, we can generalize that to the rest of the world that has a similar diet) BOTH have Type 2 diabetes AND are overweight or obese. That means that the people who are overweight or obese BUT NOT Type 2 diabetic is 92%. They overlap, but neither condition is a subset of the other. So they’re in all likelihood not the same disease, or else that percentage of those who do have both would be much higher. Someone in the medical field let me know if I’m missing some factor in my interpretation, but in terms of statistics and set theory I believe I’ve calculated this correctly. This is how I sort through all the “risk factor” bullshit that is published and repeated everywhere for the majority of things. The media loves to repeat the “risk based on x thing” (i.e., the modifier of the base risk) but never want you tell you the base risk from which to calculate the overall risk. The modifier sounds scarier because it’s a bigger number. Saying “increases risk by 30%!” sounds scarier and grabs more attention than “an increase of 3% overall”.

I wish so many women wouldn't be so invested in trying to start a family. It's socialization to keep women easily influenced like this. "I have to find a man so that I can have kids. That is my prerogative as a woman." That's what all women are taught, implicitly or explicitly, by society. Not once are they taught to consider themselves. So this just keeps happening. And happening. And happening. Because this narrative benefits men entirely. If women think they can't be happy without kids, it means they'll think they can't be happy without a man. And if you can't be happy without a man, that means any man is better than no man, even if that man actually makes your life worse. This is a system that has worked for men over and over and over again. That's why it has never changed. And women will continue to be inundated with this narrative in order to force them to think that they have to live their lives devoted to someone else.

My parents are 9 years apart and yeah, the lack of independence----the complete inability to fathom being by herself and making her own decisions without asking permission----is very evident in my mother. She never bothered to pursue her own choices and freedoms. She was too scared. And in the year 2022 there are still women GALORE who do the exact same thing. They're too scared to live for themselves. It's sad. It's sickening, frankly. But you can't tell them otherwise. They rationalize and defend themselves and their choices to date men who are too old for them. They've seen it normalized or they don't have the much needed perspective of age and the realization that normal people in their 20s don't date teenagers or they just don't want to be told what to do because they think they know everything already. They shout down people who tell them otherwise. All you can do is live your own life and let other people make bad decisions. I dealt with this shit too, but thank god I had the mental clarity to know that men were creeps who liked to seek out teenage girls. I knew that I had to just wait out my teens and early 20s for the creeps to die down and stop flooding me. And they did. But too many girls in that age just want attention and validation and these older men prey on that so hard because they know that's exactly what these girls are seeking; these men have life and social experience these girls simply don't, and the girls don't realize it because they're too young/naive. That was long, but this is just such a pet peeve of mine. I've seen the effects of women making these decisions for all the wrong reasons, and it's just so frustrating how many times I've been told to shut up and let them "live their life". Won't be much life let to live when they go down that road. But god forbid someone warn them of anything. Even other people will support their decision. It's gross. It's just so so so so so gross. I cannot fathom how other people don't see any problem with it at all.

When I lost a bit of weight and started dressing outside the parameters of T-shirts and jeans, I would point out every time someone did something especially nice for me. “Oh, wow, you’re just letting me through the subway gate without a ticket after the machine malfunctioned? How nice!” “How nice of you to make space for me in line. Most people usually don’t do this.” “Oh, thank you for helping me with this problem. It’s so hard usually to find someone willing.” I don’t do it to be passive aggressive, I am just legitimately surprised by the different treatment.

My question is why do you associate those kinds of clothes with feeling pretty? Did you see models wear them as a socially upheld beauty standard, and therefore want to wear them? Aren’t you then conforming to exactly what is prescribed to be “attractive”? By wearing the clothes that you know other people will complement you on, are you not acknowledging your understanding that these clothes are considered attractive by the general populace? Why these clothes? Did you yourself actually choose them? Or were you influenced by what other people consider attractive? How can you dress “for yourself” if there are certain styles that you gravitate toward, and those styles were made popular because they are attractive? Clothes convey something about you whether you intend them to or not (the whole of fashion is meant to use clothing as a language). They say something about your social circle, your interests (or disinterests), your media influences, your comfort with your body, where you might be going (work, exercising, party), etc. and we shouldn’t pretend that they don’t.

I’ve started to experiment with other clothing like long vests (I guess they’re called “kimonos”, but that feels like appropriation to use that word) and hats. And of course the attention that I get changes. A lot more people stare at you when you wear clothes outside the norm. I guess what I’m not understanding is that a lot of women will be like “I don’t understand why they’re staring when I’m showing skin!” And it’s like…do you really not know why? They’re surprised somehow.

It’s not about the ham. Reactions like what you’re having aren’t over “one little thing” or “something stupid”. There is a pattern that has been building up that is causing you stress; you just must not be seeing it at the moment. Try replacing the word “ham” with “money”. Or the word “time”. Or the word “plans”. Because that’s what the ham really represents to you. That might help you understand what the real issue is. And yes, you should try talking to a therapist in order to delve into all these little details and patterns that you may be currently blind to. Little things are building and building and causing stress and they may be so small in the moment that you don’t realize they’re hurting you. Death by a thousand tiny cuts.

>> * I was very indifferent to making my physical appearance be attractive towards people. People would be like, "you need to make yourself look pretty so that boys will like you", and I would be like... why? What's the point of that? My peers would talk about making themselves look pretty for the purpose of someone liking them sexually, and I understood that was a thing... I just didn't understand why there was such an emphasis on making yourself look attractive specifically for another person. Gonna get downvoted, but as an asexual who has worn clothes that don’t show more than arms and head all my life, I still can’t wrap my head around this one. People do what you describe, and then turn around and *insist* until they’re blue in the face that they’re not doing it for attention. You’re telling me that you’re wearing something fancier/more revealing than a T-shirt and jeans because “you just felt like it” that day and not because you were looking to draw attention? Come on. We can’t have this both ways, where we insist that “it’s not for other people” and yet we specifically dress in certain clothes to draw more attention to our bodies. Let the downvotes commence.

OP, it sounds like you should have filed some kind of report that your sister abandoned the girl, but maybe it’s too late for that since you already took her in. You’ve become this girl’s mother. If you want your old life back, you need to report to CPS and find a way to place her somewhere else.

Then there are so many ads between the guide and the actual ingredient list that it seems like that’s the end of the page. So the page reads like - ingredient list (no units) - step by step picture guide (not detailed) - ingredient list again (with units) - bullet point list with amounts and times (detailed) Very confusing.

“He picked me up in a S175 Speedbat Hyperdriver.” Right, so are we supposed to be impressed or horrified? This gives absolutely zero context, ever, to any story, because anyone who doesn’t know about cars doesn’t have a clue what this is supposed to mean or why it’s relevant, and anyone who does know about cars will assign a different judgment to the story. So it either adds nothing at all or muddles the meaning of what you’re *actually* trying to say. That’s why *it’s bad*. That’s like me talking about the latest GPU I put in my computer to run the latest game I’m playing. The brand adds nothing to the point. “I put in a new/expensive graphics processor.” That’s it. That’s all anyone needs to know. The brands doesn’t matter at all.

I think that there should be some process if a woman wants to keep a baby against the man’s wishes. Like, the woman has to inform him that she is pregnant the moment she finds out. Then he has to sign something to give up all parental rights and responsibility. And then she MUST be informed about his decision. Then it’s up to her to decide to abort or not. And to prevent a man from dragging his feet, make it so that he forfeits all choice about it if he doesn’t make a decision within a week after being informed of the pregnancy. If the man was never informed of the pregnancy to even initiate this process, and the woman keeps it, he has the choice to forfeit all rights and responsibility to the child after the birth. All this would be dependent on abortion being available at all stages of the pregnancy, however. Decreasing the abortion window only puts more pressure on this process and doesn’t give the two people enough time to choose. The whole system is so paltry right now.

A lot of women don’t have that barometer in their heads. You can see it on the daily abuse posts on this subreddit. There is no red flag going up for them. I’m pretty ambivalent about being in a relationship, definitely leaning more toward being single as a preference (demisexual aromantic), so if a guy wants to impress me he has to jump through every invisible hoop I have without complaint. (Plus I have an asshole for a father, so it actually took until I was 20 and playing videogames online and meeting guy friends my age that I learned that not all men were horrible, though the majority do speak about women as thought they are commodities…I don’t think they realize it because they all hear women being talked about using certain language, and just adopt that language as they would any other, without questioning it). None of them have passed all my hoops flawlessly. But if it doesn’t happen, I am still making an effort every day to enjoy life on my own terms. I develop my skills and do things I enjoy. I think a lot of girls are taught not to do those things, so as women they don’t know what to do with their lives other than to serve others (a husband and child). It doesn’t occur to them that they also matter and that they can do things by themselves.

First of all, do not blame yourself. You couldn’t have known. But now that you do know, you can go by what you feel. You feel you should tell his wife. That’s all you can really do, end the contact with him and try to tell his wife if you feel able (safe, confident). Don’t worry about proof. Even if you don’t have any, the wife more than likely has her own suspicions, and you would merely be confirming them. You could be saving her a lot of gaslighting, and helping her get peace of mind. And if she chooses not to believe you, that’s her burden to bear. You will have done your part. Even if you do try to tell her and then she blames you, don’t take it. You aren’t to blame, you informed her, and it’s all in their hands now. You can wash yours clean of the whole thing.

Blockchain tech is great, if it’s sustainable. I would love to be able to have a unique sword in my videogames that tells me the entire history of who owned it and who it killed and the various names it’s been given through the years of gameplay. But selling a digital image as if it can’t be easily reproduced with the click of a button (literally, Print Screen), is absolutely asinine. Maybe NFTs will one day be that sword in my videogame. I don’t know. More goes into it than it’s image. It’ll carry a whole digital history and in-game use that can’t be replicated by any user with a keyboard. Someone would need the game’s source code and any files related to the item in order to reproduce it, and then it would lose value once the game stopped being popular. The value would regulate itself like that, similar to the real world; popular things cost more; unpopular does not. But that sword is on the blockchain, which is useful. Any NFT is merely a thing that uses the blockchain, and isn’t inherently useful. Why would I buy an NFT when I can google search the image, print screen it (or even just right click + copy it), and use it for my custom made DND deck? I didn’t need to pay a cent to do that. The only value an NFT can have if it’s a digital image is in how securely that image is locked away from being easily accessible with copy+paste and print screen. We’re not there yet (and I hope we never will be). I understand digital artists and such may want to sell their work as an NFT to get proper payment for their work, but that’s why you show a small image and lock the huge full resolution one behind a paywall. If I want a high quality art print or wallpaper, I can buy it at that full resolution and support the artist that way. But even then you can’t stop that person from posting online somewhere else at full res. Same with any digital media. Movies. Books. Games. Creators have to rely on donations because there is no technology that is able to prevent their work from spreading once they release it. That’s the nature of the internet, of anything digital. So once someone tries to put a value on a single copy, the moment that image is released, that value drops instantly. The people playing around with NFTs as digital images right now are playing hot potato with worthless items until something more substantial comes along that can’t be so easily replicated. So does “NFT” mean any item that is protected by the blockchain, or does it mean literally any thing that can be traded on the blockchain (and images happen to be the only thing right now)? Because the first definition is just a showcase of how great blockchain technology is, which is true. The second definition means that current NFTs are an extremely dicey “investment” and people are just playing with fire until something real comes along. Be careful not to be blinded by “how great NFTs are” because they’re supported by the blockchain (the real potential) versus supporting NFT trading as a viable money making strategy.

I’ve had a similar issue relating to my condo. I hate the white walls that make it feel like an asylum, but I have depression and anxiety, so trying to plan all the complexities of interior decorating sends me spiraling. It’s also too quiet, like a tomb. Both things I couldn’t have predicted before buying the place. I spend more time at my parents’ house because it’s familiar, and there are more trees, and a nice back porch. I’ve also read that many people have no trouble leaving home and being on their own for college. Then people tend to have more trouble leaving home after college, around age 30. Not sure why, but I suspect it’s because the college environment supports pedestrians and public transportation and is more social, and the world outside that simply does not in the vast majority of places. I’m not saying it’s your job to fix him, but since you say he is leaving more and more, and his heart doesn’t seem to be in it anymore, I am throwing out the following for consideration: - he might be experiencing the area negatively in a way that you are not, something that he couldn’t have predicted before actually moving there; he may not even be able to put it into words or be aware of the impact it is having on him, and is just responding to it - he might be experiencing the interior in a way that he may not like or know how to describe, or may not know this is what is driving him away - he may be experiencing some sort of trauma or mental illness; separation anxiety from family, depression, anxiety, loneliness (you may not be enough socialization for him) Up to you to decide. I’m suggesting these considerations for you just as much as I am suggesting them for others who may read this in the future, or the ones who are reading now and want to be extremely judgmental about the millions of people who move back in with their parents because the “real world” gets “too hard”.

I’m not saying it’s anyone’s job to help someone get over their problems. She should go her own way, yes. But SOME PEOPLE in these comments are calling him all sorts of names and insulting him when they don’t know his story or situation at all. We’re getting one side of the story, and it’s the side of the person frustrated with someone who very well may have some kind of trauma. We don’t know. So I’m quite disturbed by someone saying degrading shit like “attached to his mommy” and “not ready to be […] a big boy” and “being breast fed”. Like who the fuck are you even to be talking about someone like that when you don’t even know shit about them. Sounds like someone who has never had to exercise empathy in their entire life. Maybe they aren’t the best person to be taking advice from.

At least half of my online friend group has bought NFTs, and they explained it as them “having the only right to use that picture”. It’s a digital image, which they used as they profile picture. Another friend immediately took a screenshot of every single one and posted them to the chat. A debate ensued about the “legality” of doing that. So either I’m understanding something wrong after witnessing the people who actually bought them, the people who bought them are understanding something wrong, or they really are just worthless because they’re digital images that anyone can copy with a simple screenshot.

If you want them dressed up…you may be looking at a knot on how to justify them being part of the guests. But if you just need them there, the world is your oyster in terms of what positions a gala needs people to fill for it to run smoothly. - Person who announces the guests’ arrival - A professional escort so one of the guests doesn’t get embarrassed (this might be a good one to fill the “dressing up” requirement you might want for your character; maybe someone’s mother hires the character to help her son or daughter save face) - wait staff - chef - security/guard - musician - gala organizer/director or relative - cleaning staff - anyone who might normally have a job bustling around the castle/building every day

Ghost first, and if that doesn’t work, bring in the legal protection. But informing the person outright that they will no longer have access to the victim increases the chances that the victim will be killed, since now the abuser knows they are being restricted by either their victim (victim isn’t allowed to have boundaries in their mind) or the law (how dare the victim try to bring the police down on the abuser). The law is absolute shit when it comes to protecting domestic violence victims, and just because a court needs the victim to take X steps to prosecute later doesn’t mean that those steps are safe for the victim to take in order to keep themselves alive.

You can live anywhere while avoiding detection, but being in a place with more oversight (like a city) might require extra precautions. If you look at real life, all it takes for someone like, say, a serial killer to avoid detection for several years or decades is to move states (i.e., change jurisdictions so that the jurisdiction to which you moved does not have files on the in the jurisdiction in which you committed the crime). In a Medieval setting, as long as your characters do something as simple as move towns, that’s enough to throw off detection for a long time. It was a challenge to connect records between cities or far flung areas of the countryside.

- calling your spouse your best friend implies a level of enmeshment and codependency that is not healthy - my best friend, personally, is another woman who I grew up with through childhood; to call my spouse the same thing both devalues the role of the spouse as a serious life partner who has to make hard decisions with you, and devalues the relationship I’ve had with my best friend who I’ve known longer and through other facets of my life separate from those I would want to share with a spouse. - imagine relegating the person you have sex with on a regular basis to the role of “friend”, categorically. Do you regularly have sex with all your friends? Is that a normal “friend” activity? The point of a “relationship” being considered separate from a “friendship” is that sex or some form of intimacy is involved far beyond the familiarity of “just friends”.

Men push this shit because they don’t want women to realize their own value. Women have a hard time standing up for themselves before 30, so that makes it easy for men naturally to take advantage of them. Then after 30, men have to try to reduce the confidence we get with age, so they tell us we lose all value right as we start to realize what we are actually worth. Your knowledge and confidence grows with age. Your life experience grows with age. People are happiest between 40 and 60. You only have good things to look forward to as you get older.

Damn, I thought this was r/TwoXChromosomes with another post about a terrible husband/boyfriend, and got confused when people started talking about neurodiversity when the post didn’t mention it. I see now. My first thought was marriage counseling, since clearly you two can’t communicate in a constructive way. It’s interesting to see other people suggest one-on-one therapy, since going to that would indicate that you should be looking into options of living your life that don’t involve him. This doesn’t scream “abuse” to me so much as it screams “frustration” on both ends. But OP has indicated that they’ve had the urge to ditch the husband on multiple occasions. I wonder——why not just do it? And if you ever decide to come back, he’ll either have realized the error of his ways and that he crossed a boundary, or he won’t. And you can just leave again.

You should not be stressing about things that the other person may or may not believe. You cannot control their emotions. If you have been upfront about being sterile and not wanting kids, then you have done your part. If the person pursues your further, then that’s on them to consider the consequences. And right now you’re trying to play 4D chess to decide the emotions of the other person before anything happens. That’s not fair to them either.

That age is just where we feel we have more power over our own lives and are more secure, so we have the ability to be like “I don’t need this guy.” It’s such a disgrace that men target women younger than that, because they know younger women don’t have the privilege yet that allows them to be secure in their own life.

I’d be really sad to learn that this is how most women were raised. I haven’t met more than maybe two or three who were repressed like this. But then, I grew up in a diverse, secular area that very much accepts LGBT+ and gives a side-eye to people who sound like they believe in the Bible as more than a cursory attend-church-but-shut-up-otherwise kind of way.

I’m baffled that OP came back early at all to accommodate this. Like no, I’m going to be abroad. You should have asked me earlier. You can’t expect me to be around every year on your whim. It sounds like OP’s mother may have not been sure if she was invited to grandchild’s Thanksgiving, so she was lonely enough to invite OP. And then she got the invite to see grandchild and ditched OP. OP was the fallback plan. But like, OP, why are you changing your plans like that? That’s your first mistake. Don’t be a doormat.

She’s been nice. She’s been tolerating shit from her sister. Her sister won’t stop. Either she stops being nice about it, or she removes herself from the situation. Talking kindly to her about it hasn’t helped. If her sister wants to ruin her life and have the audacity to act like she’s better than everyone else, let her.

You can’t use the dayblooms until your brooch reaches max level 29. So you feed it until it reaches max level 29 (cannot be fed further), and then use the dayblooms to raise the flower tier. And then the process starts over again from 0. I’m at tier 3 (blue brooch outline) and so far I haven’t enhanced to 30, so I believe this is correct for all tiers.

Yes, it would absolutely be controlling. You (general you, not personal) would be trying to dictate what can be stored on their personal property. You don’t own them. That person has every right to end a relationship with you and still have photos from previous ones. However, you would be justified in being offended if you saw him staring at those old photos frequently during your relationship. Happy people don’t focus on the past or “what might have been”. They focus on the here and now. So if he’s staring at pics of past girls, I’d take it as a signal that something is wrong in the current relationship.

Someone can act one way in public and another way in private. They can also act one way around one gender and another way around the opposite. That’s classic abusive behavior. They act nice in public so that no one believes their victim when they speak out. There have been several famous serial killers who went to church and were a “pillar of the community” that no one would have suspected. But they were SERIAL KILLERS. The positive public image was part of the facade. There is no compromising here, neither with adoption nor with “the person you love”, because there is no love on his end. Only control. Look at your own words and please, please, please realize that this is not healthy for you. There are so many red flags in your original post, and your comments show even more. You need to leave this guy before he ruins you.

The workers did stay out of devotion to the cause of electric cars, supposedly. Also he was using nepotism as the way to hire managers and CEOs. And begging state governments (i.e. public funds through a back alley channel) to fund him instead of going through more appropriate channels like putting the company up for public trading. Or the fact that investment companies wouldn’t back him because of a bunch of red flags in the way he was running his businesses, such as promoting based on nepotism and other shady practices.

Maybe it’s a good idea, as a childfree person, to not tie your money and living situation and anything that gives you independence, to a partner. I’m probably in the minority here, but I think it’s probably best to keep everything separate on the possibility that your partner suddenly makes a left turn into a lifestyle that you don’t like. Maybe that defeats the purpose of having a partner. But I see marriage as a net loss for a childfree person if their partner might remotely do something like this. Have your own separate life to vanish to if things ever stop going well. That way you can cut ties without becoming destitute.

I don’t connect with cats. I can tolerate cats, but I don’t love them. Dogs have sweet faces and are playful and and love attention. Cats like attention when they want it, and can be very affectionate without having the same dependence on you as dogs, and some people like that. A lot of people just prefer animals over humans. You are in the minority, yes, because you value cleanliness and human attention over what an animal can offer.

How do I work this out?” It’s to the point of parody, like someone is just creating posts to karma- or attention- farm. Surely the poster didn’t miss the post that happened just earlier about the same situation, right? And the comments there? They must have skipped the reading of all the other hundreds of posts about abuse. Oh and before I get fucking banned AGAIN, yes, I have been abused, and twice over, I might add.

Interesting. I don’t know why you’re getting downvoted. From what I read, this is just as harmful as douching, which is also still fine to promote products for in the U.S. It’s another wellness trick that may or may not be okay, but it seems quite biased for people to be downvoting it if the downvote isn’t for being against “wellness remedies” in general. If you don’t like wellness products, sure, downvote it. But if you’re downvoting because it’s a thing that people do in other cultures, then you may want to take a look at the kind of things that Westerners promote and wonder if you’re being racist.

It’s because dog pee kills the grass, and it cam be a problem in terms of property value, or at least HOA, if your lawn looks unsightly. It might seem like a small thing as the owner passing by once or twice, but the homeowner will notice multiple dogs passing by peeing on one particular bush or spot of lawn. The dog owners don’t realize it’s an attractive spot, and they only pass by a few times. The dogs can smell an interesting place to pee, so they lead their unwary owners to it, and it’s the same place as a bunch of other dogs before. I realize your dog pooped, I’m just saying some people have this knowledge that dogs on lawn equals bad but they never learned why, so they assume any dog excretion is bad. Not justifying this guy’s reaction, but definitely a good thing to know in terms of choosing where to allow your dog to relieve itself. We’ve never let our dogs pee on any grass remotely close to someone’s house; they’ve known to hold it until we reach a field.

Most people don’t think. They don’t worry about the future. They’re taught “God will provide” or whatever equivalent bullshit, because most people naturally are piss poor planners. They don’t have that anxiety that tells them to go research the worst outcomes. They don’t have the nonconformity to think that there might be another path. I’m not saying this out of hate or offense, it’s just true. People love to conform, as a rule. And most people aren’t anxious, so they don’t plan for the future. It doesn’t make them stupid, necessarily, they just have no reason to question the possibility that the things they were rewarded for previously——conforming and not being anxious about consequences——does fuck all for them once they’re trapped alone in a house all day with a screaming humanoid animal.

I don’t think it’s trust. I think it’s that they think everyone wants to hold a kid and they’re super proud of having a kid so they’re excited to give it to you. Saying “I’m afraid I’ll drop it” can still imply to these parents that you WANT to hold it but are AFRAID to, and so they think “well fear is no reason not to experience such joy, let me help them out!” And then they direct you how to hold it to assuage your fears. Nothing but “I don’t want to hold it” and walking away will really hammer home the message.

I learned the opposite. That more bullying = more attraction. But then the opposite was also true sometimes. I think it’s just anyone who doesn’t fit into the normal distribution of looks who gets shit on. Too pretty? Shit. Too ugly? Shit. People just really hate anyone who doesn’t conform.

I couldn't follow the third or fourth paragraphs. Are you writing a fanfiction of a fanfiction? Which part of this is your original character? You give the example of Bruno from Encanto. Are you saying that your character's motivation to lie is fear? DO OTHER PEOPLE have the ability to directly know, without question, that your character can see the future? There's a lot that just is not adding up. If I were reading this character, I would get frustrated with him very quickly because he doesn't appear to have any motivation for what he does. The god complex on top of that makes him unlikeable to the point of me thinking he is an asshole. Is your intention to make this character a villain?

Well, I’ll give you my impression based on what you’ve said so far. I don’t see his reasoning for not sharing what he knows. I don’t see how he comes off as unreliable or untrustworthy if he is usually honest about what he knows. I don’t understand how he can be “honest about what he is seeing” but also “choose who to influence and whether he’s honest or tries to trick them”. That sounds like someone who is decidedly not honest nor reliable, and it is entirely due to his own behavior. Is he surprised when people don’t believe him then? I can see why you are stumped about his mannerisms. It sounds like you are trying to write two completely divergent personalities within the same person. I get the sense that you came up with a character who you wanted to give a cool ability and make a mysterious figure for the purpose of using him as a plot device. This doesn’t sound like a character, it sounds like an amalgamation of behaviors that don’t have a motivation. For all of these traits to make sense, this character sounds like someone with a god complex. He chooses who to influence. He lies to people. He is honest toward those he cares to be honest toward. He sounds untrustworthy because he 100% acts deceitful. How are people supposed to know if he is lying to them? Given that point, why would he lie at all then? Doesn’t he want to be believed? If he is seeing the future and it’s some rare ability, why on earth would he lie? He would do everything in his power to be accurate to anyone and everyone who asks, because he wants to be seen as trustworthy in order to even be believed at all that he has the ability. Otherwise, what separates him from a con artist? If he can see the future, but constantly lies about it to whoever he feels like, people would quite spread his reputation as an unreliable person, and then no one would ask him anything at all. What does it matter if he can see the future then, if he destroys his own trustworthiness? Why would any other character interact with him? Where, then, would be his place in your story?

The part where you correct them to say “No, asexual” is what’s confusing them. Even knowing your explanation of all your orientations, saying that you are asexual sounds like a tangent to the previous conversation. “Are you gay” ——> asking about your romantic orientation “No, I’m asexual.” ——> telling them about your sexual orientation I would be confused too. If they’re asking about your dating habits, why are responding with your sexual habits?

I had a lot of options to list for you, but it would have turned into an essay, so I just didn’t. There are so many ways this could go depending on how you want the ability to function. Are his predictions perfect? There will be people who still will refuse to listen even if he is absolutely right. Look how many people deny COVID despite the existence of facts. People will be irrational, and that can be a source of tension in your story. I think authors like to think of their characters as rational actors, but not everyone is rational in the same way. Are his predictions imperfect? People might try to listen to him and still come up short. He might get blamed. They might retain their trust in him but have an understanding that only they can turn the wheel with their own hands, so to speak. We don’t know your characters. We don’t know the theme of your story, or the outcome you want. Which option fits your story best? Think about what you want to happen and then fit his ability around that. It’s the same way other authors decide how their magic system works. Soft magic vs hard magic? Really really depends on what type of story you are telling.

I don’t think it’s reasonable to expect people to remember four orientations that, in your specific case, can be summarized into a shorter explanation. I realize it’s important to you, but correcting people with a bunch of LGBT jargon comes off as incredibly high maintenance. Why are you unable to say that you are asexual but gay when you do care to have sex?
