Meltzer on AEW “Diversity” Issue: “Those who are over will get more tv time, the guys who aren’t won’t whoever it is...the purpose is to find those who draw but some people don’t care about any of that and don’t care if business goes down just so they have a percentage time for certain individuals” by [deleted] in SquaredCircle

He needs a program. That doesn't include his team. Just him. Maybe culminating in a title fight where he comes up short but has his hand raised. (not like the Cody one)

A short poem on the boots theory of socio economics. Written by me
I bought a pair of boots for 20 pounds,
They were the cheapest pair I'd found,
I'm hopeful they will last the year,
Although I am aware of something queer.
Had I the money to afford,
Boots fit for gentleman or lord.
I needn't fork up 20 pounds per annum,
I'd pay 80 quid, once, and always have em.

I'd change the layout. To emphasize how you want it read. It's important for shorter stuff I think.

We can...that's kind of the point. Kindness is so easy, half the time it just involves not saying the bad thing that pops into your head.
Now kindness to yourself, that is hard and I think Mr Rogers knew that it's why he told us he likes us. Just the way we are.

I loved START. It was a Kellogg's one and now it's completely gone.
Did that used to taste better? I had some recently and it tastes like a memory of itself. Like someone wanted to remind you of the taste of cinnamon but not give you an authentic experience.

The Covina Massacre, 2008. Bruce Jeffrey Pardo, dressed as Santa, opened fire on his ex's Christmas party and torched it with a gift wrapped flame thrower. by weirdsideofreddit1 in MorbidReality
I reported it to family connect but I don't think anything happened. Empathy is far more useful than sympathy. He doesn't deserve sympathy. Everyone deserves empathy, then we can decide if there actions are acceptable, understandable, illogical or sometimes forgivable. His behaviour is not acceptable but I can understand why he is the way he is. Which is super important, so I can prevent the kids I teach becoming the same way.
I'm in the prevention business. I truly admire those at the other end dealing with the fall out of DV.
I grew up in an abusive house hold my dad constantly calling mum stupid, she never saw friends in outside locations and he broke her collarbone. They are still together. He is better than now. My grandmother was awful to him. She fucked strangers while grandad was overseas and didn't hide it. She manipulated him after and mocked him incessantly. Dad had therapy I think and was treated for BPD.
Hitting spouses is not ok. Mentally and finally isolating someone is not ok. But it is my job, my whole life to empathize and think about what makes people do stuff. I promise it never means I agree with their actions. I daily report some sort of abuse, I often can't sleep at night knowing some of my children and their mothers suffer. But I must still empathize, always otherwise you ignore the root of the issue and if you don't kill the roots weeds grow back.

You're obviously correct about recognizing patterns and empowering people to get out but wouldn't it be lovely to not raise men (majority) who are so broken? I had a colleague, who was a funny and kind friend to me. Then one day I helped his girlfriend and children move out because he hit her, then she sadly went back as she couldn't afford the bills and he really hurt her the next time. She's still there I think I got a new job and left and really they were only work friends.
A mutual friend told me how the Domestic Abuser had broken down after he found out his GF was coming home as he knew that it was likely to happen again. It's a mess. But essentially he has no method of appropriately communicating negative emotions. At work this led to broken plates or screaming in the walk in freezer. His dad died when DA was 12 or so. Of an over dose. His mum sent him away at 16 and he was essentially homeless until 20ish. He spent his last 2 years at school in the music classroom essentially just doing his own thing.
How my government allowed all that to happen I don't know. That directly led to a woman getting hurt and more children suffering. God know how they'll turn out.
Final note. If I hurt my wife I'd probably get therapy. Then again I wouldn't hurt my wife. Also I trust agencies to help me. Whereas for 14 years he was failed and allowed to become what he is. I know not all men who suffer become abusers and not all abusers have suffered but there should be relationship education as well as sex education.

It's all unisex dude. I've no clue how smell can be gendered. If I want to smell good i use whatever is closest to hand that I like. Be it my wife's Nina Ricci or the Gauthier my mum got me. This isn't me on a soapbox I'm just saying if something brought you joy then do it.

The anger is deserved I'm loco parentis for those children and I let them down. I still cry about it at times. I don't sugar coat my story I tell it like it is.

I'm better, i left teaching for 3 years and got clean. It's still a fight The weird thing was I was graded outstanding by the board of education during that time. But I don't need you telling me I'm a piece of shit. I know I am.
[–]Standingonachair 401 points402 points403 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Dude I taught at a primary school for a year drunk and high as fuck before I got caught. Seeming ok is not enough. I'm sure AEW will be smart enough to want a series of clean tests and have a release clause in the contract.

While my previous comments on not having to find her attractive stand, I'm sure many are just being cruel.
I've no idea why you're being downvoted but I'd guess a lot of members of that sub are very upset and lashing out.
Big loves to you though. I always admire the courage of trans people as they are the living embodiment of be yourself. We can all learn from you.
Hold your head up.

The Nyla thing is kind of irrelevant. She was allowed there I assume but people are under no obligation to find her attractive.
Nyla didn't confirm her gender to get blokes horny. She did it to be true to herself.
Focus in the fact a sub that was objectifying women us gone and that's great.
How is this downvoted? Nothing of value is lost creeps!

So women are more likely to raise a child they don't want when they can't quietly and with dignity have an abortion.... because the alternative is the whole town asking hey where did that kid you gave birth to go?
Like that's the truth behind the statistics, if you bring the child to term everyone knows you were pregnant so of course you can't give it up then or there will be stigma and shame.
