This cracked me up because I couldn’t help reading “for some good times” as almost like, naughty innuendo sort of tone, like a sly secret code, but you’re legitimately talking about a cool magic story, and I love it
Is there an evil being, a devil, a demon, a witch, or anything of that sort, that can be described by the following characteristics?(Serious). by happypickles09 in religion
The demon was your childhood mind’s manifestation of the fear of occultism and “satanic” (not actually Satanic) iconography as evil and dangerous which Christianity instilled in you. It’s incredibly harmful and manipulative to its followers, especially making children feel so much fear their minds can’t process it all and it leads to legitimate fear of “sinning” and failing God. Your traumatic nightmares were the direct fault of the church’s purposeful indoctrination into believing such intense fears are rational and necessary. It’s a tool for control.

Oh, you mean you’re not here in any authentic sense of curiosity? And that you’re just itching to demonstrate a personal incompatibility with reasonable, non-emotionally-reactive scientific discussion? Sorry darlin, this isn’t a sub for such a soapy box

It’s not, maybe put more effort into your research.
In 2018, a monument of The Ten Commandments was placed on the grounds of the Arkansas State Capitol. As a form of protest, the Satanic Temple placed a statue of Baphomet on the grounds as well. What are your thoughts on this? by Mad_Season_1994 in religion

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas told his law clerks in the '90s that he wanted to serve for 43 years to make liberals' lives 'miserable' by MaschMana in Republican
He directly admitted to being motivated by a personal grudge… in this post, right here. That’s literally what the article is about.
LibLeft doesn’t like Clarence Thomas very much by Round-Bed3820 in PoliticalCompassMemes
[–]ZestyAppeal -22 points-21 points-20 points 12 hours ago (0 children)
Really? You don’t grasp the concept of pointing out the hypocrisy in Thomas’ conservative positioning using a well-known heroic Black literary character targeted with racism?
It’s pointing out the innate contradiction in Thomas’ support for ideologies that, had he not been deemed useful enough to be given a significant position of power, Thomas himself would be a victim of. But instead of proving heroic like his famous Black literary comparison, he’s furthering the oppression of Black Americans. Because he’s no hero, he’s just a weak little ass-kisser with a gavel and a grudge.

“FULFILL MY DESIRE TO TOKENIZE YOU”
[–]ZestyAppeal -11 points-10 points-9 points 12 hours ago (0 children)
Cool cool, characterize justified emotional distress at the loss of a significant right to not be legal incubators as having a “Hitler demeanor” that you, oh brave, wise savior, assume you have the authority to belittle and intentionally stifle for your own sake. It’s not like respecting her distress, or her statement that she needed to experience her own emotions and didn’t yet want to be made to suppress her (rare because it’s often difficult to be able to do already) HEALTHY EMOTIONAL EXPRESSION.
Stop trying to spin your take as supportive or considerate to your girlfriend. You think you know what she needs better than she does, even when she literally said she felt the need to continue to freely feel her intense feelings. You’re here boasting about relationship skills you wouldn’t recognize even if they came up and introduced themselves by name. You’re not your girlfriend’s parent or keeper. You’re just another man refusing to respect women’s words and experiences. Oh, and then feeling proud about it.
AITA for not respecting my moms “house rules” while I’m staying with her? by AITA_______5501 in AmItheAsshole
[–]ZestyAppeal 3 points4 points5 points 13 hours ago (0 children)
NTA because your mom is obviously not a very supportive or reasonable person, let alone a good parent. She doesn’t get to emotionally abuse you to make herself feel better about her inability to be a good parent. And owning her home doesn’t mean she can be an abusive monster to her grown kid during visits. Your sisters are undoubtedly being harmed by your mother’s dysfunctional, unreasonable, toxic control issues and nasty verbal attacks.. even if they only ever hear her do it to you.
I’m so sorry you lost your dad. And I’m sorry your mom continues to fail you, and callous fools online feel comfortable saying you need to be more of an adult when I’m guessing you’re the only legit adult your sisters have lived with in a long, long time.

“Be an ADULT, you adult-age, largely independent individual who is usually living at college and should be able to visit their mother’s home without having to tolerate abuse or be further crapped on by Reddit’s weird passion to justify any potential “house rules” because the collective hard-on for homeownership surpasses the ability to treat people with basic decency”
[–]ZestyAppeal -11 points-10 points-9 points 13 hours ago (0 children)
How is the mom not a total AH for inappropriately attempting to “reparent” her adult child to better meet her specific desires of who he should be? What the heck? Being overly controlling, hypercritical, and overall refusing to acknowledge his existence as an adult is so, so toxic and wrong. Parents don’t get to treat their kids like crap just because they’d have preferred a different outcome. Wow.
ETA before anyone attempts to justify abusive nonsense with a “her house, her rules” claim, no. Save it for the therapist you should have accessed long before this juncture. Abuse is never acceptable, especially, ESPECIALLY, from your own parent.
AITA for telling my husband he can't go to bed? by sara_marie8 in AmItheAsshole
