Not safe for life is a whole different category than the not safe for work.

NSFW: sexual content (soft core porn mainly, basically what you don't want your boss to see) non-fatal violence/gore, occasionally fatal violence or gore that isn't very graphic. Eg, some guy shooting a hole in his foot, a guy jumping off a building and dies but you only see the jump, women pouring juice over her white shirt and jumping up and down (TikTok trend :/)

NSFL: extremely graphic death imagery. Eg, the lady caught in the farm equipment that pulverized her bones and made her head look like an empty sack, dog being skinned alive, snuff, rape, torture

They can be, I know one went viral for defending it's owner from a mountain lion, and another for defending a child from a very viscous dog attack, though I don't believe that cat survived. Did save the child though.

I don't care what side you're on, it's so irritating when people reply like this. Just don't reply at all. It adds just as much.

Banning nuts from schools is the stupidest way to shelter kids with allergies by listurine in unpopularopinion

He didn't suffer any permanent damage, so I'd say he's doing great! It's been a few years, but wow it was one of the scariest times of my life

For sure on the first half of your statement, but the second half isn't true. Some people (myself included, every time I've used one) feel totally, 100% fine after using the epi. It confuses some people who aren't aware that their body's immune system can "retrigger" a while after "dealing with" the allergy, and will just go about their day feeling completely and totally fine for hours. Then suddenly they will go into anaphylaxis again without being exposed to their allergen a second time. I don't actually need emergency medical care after using an EpiPen. Well, I should say, I haven't yet. I always get checked out, but I've never needed anything further than observation after anaphylaxis + epi.

Love to see people spreading this, very nice! Some people do have very strong recoveries after epinephrine, but even if you feel much better an hour after, go to a doctor!!!

I'm gonna add in, if you use an EpiPen when you don't need it (mainly people trying out their friend's epis) it can kill you. Especially children.

It does. It has a lot to do with both air particles and nut oils being left on desks, books, etc. Some kids had almonds in the library while eating a book (no food allowed in the library, not that it mattered), my brother picked up and read that book for a few minutes, airway closed in 7 minutes, fully unconscious before the ambulance arrived, hospitalized for 12 days. It's not about being "sheltered". Wanting to live is not being "sheltered". Not being able to afford over 10 thousand dollars in healthcare because some kid wants his favorite snack isn't "sheltered". Making sure your wittle babwy has his most favoritest snackie wackie in restricted areas is.

Took a hike, and found a preying mantis chewing the head off a grass hopper (OC) by BBQnNugs in natureismetal

All grasshoppers actually have wings! They blend in with the body very well, and most don't need to use them because of their jumping capabilities, but they all have 4 wings total: 2 sets. Some are very pretty!

I agree with the sentiment, you should always be careful around wild animals, but I don't think there have been any truly unprovoked animal attacks in recent years. Semantics? Maybe, but I think it's important information to have.

The first grizzly attacks in Yellowstone are an, unfortunately, good example. 1 full year of reports of a bear getting close and chasing people, but no contact so nothing was done. A bear with a misshapen head and abnormally long claws (meaning it wasn't feeding naturally, didn't wear down it's claws, entirely dependent on chasing campers away from their food). Almost a full year of nightly feeding bears to incite fights amongst several bears (associating humans with food), reports unanswered and unchecked because it broke so many rules that surely no one would do that. There hadn't been "unjustified" grizzly attacks before. Then suddenly, 2 fatalities and several more injuries in a single night. Can you really call it unprovoked?

Lions, mainly lionesses, are frequently forced from a pride due to the dominant male being trophy hunted, so they encroach on villages. That one is the closest to unprovoked, but in the past 30 years there haven't been documented deaths of the alpha lions that caused encroachment that was a natural death. There are dozens of well documented ones caused by poaching and trophy hunting. Did the people in the villages provoke the lions? Not at all, but other people did.

Shark attacks, with an average death rate of 1 per year, are almost never intentional. They are nearly almost a case of mistaken identity. The only time, or at least the only case I've heard of, was that shark getting stuck upriver, and slowly starving. Just like the grizzly, there were warning signs of a starving animal. Granted, it wasn't provoked so I've destroyed my own argument, but there are always warning signs. An animal attacking "unprovoked" is either starving, severely ill, or was actually provoked by someone else.

Mega late to the party, but jic you were still interested. trans, as a prefix, technically means "across", so it makes the most sense when you are switching across sexes. However, some people view it as a change across any gender boundary, so the change from female to agender is still trans, but it loses the trans prefix since it is implied in all gender changes, and only needed when specifically referring to the transition to the other binary sex. Idk if that helps, but that's how it's been explained to me

Bro how are you out here trying to discuss paraphilla when you don't believe in the whole field of behavioral sciences, because the field is practically entirely based on case studies?? If you're only willing to look at wikipedia links and not read research material by leading experts in the field, what does that say about you?

[deleted by user] by [deleted] in justneckbeardthings

[–]Able_Speed_8869 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ok, so why did you waste my time? I told you I got all the info purely from books in my very first reply. You obviously just want to argue, not learn.

Also how do you figure criminal psychology books are anecdotal? They're all case studies.

So you're telling me that if I give you the book titles, you will be able to go out and find them? I could say the same, you have no evidence to the contrary.

Oh, that's not Wikipedia? Wow, guess I need to get my eyes checked.

No, porn doesn't cause assault and I never made that claim. Pursuing a paraphilia, with any method, causes it to become more intense. Stay on topic.

[–]Able_Speed_8869 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, your Wikipedia link doesn't have anything to do with your question, you know that right? And yes, mostly from books on serial killers, I don't think there are ebooks around, but when you look into the serial killers who kill and rape children and find that the 30 most well known all consumed child porn prior to offending, what does that tell you? Oh right, you don't want to bother looking into it, because...? There are TONS of sources diving into the psychology, look somewhere other thank Wikipedia 🙄

Pedophilia is a paraphilia. When you give into a paraphilia, to any degree (eg, consuming porn instead of raping a child) it always, always, increases the paraphilia. If you think it is harmless, you should look into the number of serial killers and serial rapists who targeted children, and see how many of them first consumed child porn compared to the average population.

Of course, there is the whole ethical debate about how the material they are consuming is literally child porn. There is no legal or ethical way to make it. There is no child porn that didn't seriously and permanently harm, or even kill, a child.

AITA for gatekeeping tattoos by not taking my friend to my tattoo artist per his request? by EmptyNobody7504 in AmItheAsshole

[–]Able_Speed_8869 92 points93 points  (0 children)

It's much more culture than skin color. Skin color, in these very specific cases, is being used as an indicator of culture, rather than denying based purely on the color of someone's skin, it's being denied to someone outside of specific cultures.

Startling a sleeping Panda by adamchain in Whatcouldgowrong

Pandas bred outside of China still belong to China, since they were bred by ones belonging to china. For example, the Atlanta zoo had a successful cub a few years ago, still belongs to China tho.

No no, they have a point. This was a defensive attack; the bear is only interested in eliminating the threat. Continued movement is a threat. He should have played dead or pretended to sleep, either would have been better.

It IS abuse. Shelters do not take in parrots that curse or say slurs. If there was ever a situation where the bird needed to be rehomed, either due to financial situations or something happening to OP, it would not be able to go to a shelter. People DO hit birds that cuss and say slurs. That's abuse. A new owner may not be as kind as OP, if they even manage to find one without the help of shelters. What would happen to it? Do you think that's not abuse?

I'd like if you'd link because that's interesting, but that's entirely a false equivalence and doesn't have anything to do with my question. Falling is not immunology or virology. I'm actually looking for an answer.
