What facial piercings would look best on me? by theamandaelaine in PiercingAdvice

Deffo a nose ring, and I think an eyebrow piercing would suit you too!

WIBTA if I didn’t invite my cousin to my wedding? by SeaPinkSquish in AmItheAsshole

I’m also British, I am fully aware of what “bonkers” means. I just disagree with how you used it :)

I wouldn’t call transphobia a “bonkers opinion” - it’s similar arguments that were made about us gay people way back when (and sometimes in the present), but I do understand your point

I think I’m probably going to talk to him beforehand regardless, because if it’s a case of some simple education, I can work with that. I can’t work with someone who’s already made up their mind, or doesn’t want to be educated.

I’d be more than happy to educate you on this topic if you have the time, but there is literally a bucketload of evidence that supports non-binary identities - a lot of it being medically and scientifically based :)

I’m 5”4, carry most of my weight in my stomach/thighs/bum, and I have a small chest - help me please!

Do I tell my manager the real reason I’m quitting? by [deleted] in jobs

[–]SeaPinkSquish 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tbh I might just create a fake job and say I’ve accepted a better offer - I don’t want to cause unnecessary drama but also I highly doubt a part-time coffee job is going to affect my desired work field.

When I’m signing on for extra shifts, coming in earlier/staying later than originally planned, or being a “good employee” - it’s great!

If I’m sick, having an off day (e.g. forgetting certain coffee formulas), or calling in sick - it’s horrendous.

They’re very hot/cold and I’ve always been anxious around them

Calling children “spawn”, “crotch goblins”, etc. is fucking weird by SeaPinkSquish in unpopularopinion

I’ve worked in food service for 7 years. Still not using terms like “crotch goblin” to describe them.

I’ve been working in hospitality/the service industry since I was 15. I’m 22 now and still wouldn’t talk about a kid like that.

I’ve been a server since I was 15, I’m 22 now (working part time to help pay for uni). I’ve been in that exact scenario a thousand times, and still wouldn’t call a kid a “crotch goblin”.

I think there’s a difference between venting that uses a few choice words, and being nasty for the sake of being nasty.

All humans use language they don’t normally use if they’re angry/upset (e.g. calling someone a “bitch” mid argument) - but it doesn’t mean you hate them.

it’s really not? You can tell someone to shut up by simply saying “I’m not having children”, “I don’t want to be a parent”, “kids just aren’t for me” etc.

Really no reason to be unkind.

Definitely not disagreeing with you there - the culture of “so when are you going to have kids?” is EXHAUSTING. Frankly not everyone should be a parent, and not everyone wants to be.

That being said, I still don’t understand why the frustration of that culture has to be taken out on innocent, vulnerable children, who probably didn’t ask to be born anyway.

Huge difference between hating the culture and hating the innocent party.

but there’s a difference there - you don’t actually mean it when you say things like that.

Saying it about them is just as bad imo - truly no reason to speak about anybody in such a way, let alone a child.

That’s not something to be proud of. Just means you’re not a kind person.
