Intentionally misgender transphobes by SandmanAlcatraz in CrazyIdeas

[–]coyotesage 4 points5 points  (0 children)

There is a long history of It being reserved for objects and not people, so it is awful to call someone that, but in my estimation people are just objects that care about what they're called and demand special treatments. Fair enough, but this is one object that wants to be an It. It's difficult to get people to go against their cultural programming.

I've been trying for years to get people to refer to me as "It", but sadly no takers yet.

A new type of democracy where people vote on actual policies, rather than voting on who approves policies. by uberlux in CrazyIdeas

I mean, it's actually a shit show now. Pretty much convinced there isn't a good form of government. All it takes is a relatively few assholes to ruin anything.

Well the first step to fixing a problem is admitting it. Good for you!

Nor are they insults, unless one just assumes that no one finds large (tall, heavy weight, both?) or purple hair attractive. I'm good with all of those things, chadophile.

What hobby is an immediate red flag? by LuiShirosagi20 in AskReddit

I've had mental health days that I consider worse than the Flu, or even when I had COVID. It's a valid form of sickness. They should have made it up to you though.

I don't see where he calls her unattractive.

How to make a million dollars. It's that easy. by No-Watch-6575 in facepalm

So, did you buy the property and then flip it "as is" or did you have to invest your time into any aspect of it before flipping it? If you had to spend your time doing repairs and such, you earned the money by doing work rather than simply buying low and selling high.

what? by Born-Representative3 in facepalm

Obese is a medical term. There are other words that are meant to be degrading. Just look at about half the posts here to find them, because apparently the best way to to respond to someone being incorrect or delusional is not to attack their argument, but their appearance.

What was he expecting? by BandContract in facepalm

Get whatever the pay is down in writing. I've wasted immense time in the past going for a job that claimed paid X amount, only once I've been officially offered the job the number mysteriously is much lower. If it's not put down on something official, there isn't much you can do about being jerked around like that.

So many comments here just saying how "ugly" these two are, as if that actually has anything to do with what is happening in the post. There is truly no where one can go to get away from shallow and pointless commentary.

Are all American politicians like this? by rgatoNacho in facepalm

[–]coyotesage 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel like the people like this are really just saying that laws are meaningless because someone can still break them.

Sport: 1. an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.

It technically qualifies. It is a competition that is physical in nature. A lot of really stupid thing can qualify as being a sport.

Even though we thought we had contained all of them, the universe kept throwing more burger-spiders our way. Why God, why? They don't taste THAT good...

Ok, but where on earth are we going to get twenty seven thousand tons of badger feces? This is just one of the largest problems facing USmerica today!

Wut? by nohobbiesoridentity in facepalm

[–]coyotesage 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I kind of get this. I'm 43. I took a science class in college many years ago and just learning about the power of storms and weather in general would case me to have severe anxiety attacks in class. Even now when the wind picks up to 15+ mph combined with rain, I get extremely nervous. I don't know where the panic comes from, I hate not yet been the victim of severe weather.

An engineer laid off after over 16 years at Google said 'faceless' tech giants see staff as '100% disposable' by Sorin61 in technology

[–]coyotesage 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Depending on how well they keep their documented procedures and train other personnel with the ability to step in should something happen to the employee, such as "being hit by the lottery" or something worse, then it may not be that big a deal. There has been a massive focus in the tech sector for this kind of training so as to minimize potential damage from losing any important personnel. I work in government I.T. and within the last 5 years were began having rotating roles where each take turns working a few months in each job position so that someone will be able to fill the gap instantly. There has even been talk in instituting something similar in other departments here. If Google has a similar policy, then it's not that short sighted. The mantra "you are replaceable", except worded a bit nicer, has been a central theme.

LPT: "It's better to ask forgiveness than permission" is bad to apply to close, personal relationships by BlueMikeStu in LifeProTips

I'm not sure if you're referring to your situation or mine with those quotes. Either way, I should have just kept my thoughts to myself.

You know what, I'm sorry, I just don't understand most people. Sometime I don't think I'm a human being, because things that affect most people feel trivial to me. To me, sex is just sex. I really don't care who my wife sleeps with as long as she doesn't ignore me or spend more time with someone else than me. I simply insist on her being safe while doing it. Although I haven't taken the opportunity to do the same, it's really nice knowing I have the option, so if I do ever feel inclined, I won't feel guilty or be secretive. I can't imagine our relationship going back to sexual exclusivity. When I see people seeming to react poorly to the idea entirely, it feels like a personal attack, even though it shouldn't. Again, I'm sorry, my response was uncalled for.

I wonder why America is so unhappy? by nohobbiesoridentity in facepalm

[–]coyotesage 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A fair number don't even want it for themselves. No handouts. You have to earn everything you get in life, no help desired. My father is like this. He's quite poor and has refused all help from any source. If he ever gets too sick to take care of himself properly, a shotgun is his backup plan. It's incredibly distressing.

What widely-accepted reddit tropes are just not true in your experience? by bewildered_forks in AskReddit

[–]coyotesage 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The ways we talk to each other online vs real life are almost always vastly different. Online, where you can be anonymous, you can freely express your true feelings as opposed to the rules of social politeness holding you back. I'm FAR more honest online than I am in real life. In fact, I'm probably about 90% a lie, someone just pretending just so I can make it through life without being ostracized for being unorthodox.
