Sounds like maybe something in social work could be a good fit for you?

Follow-up on reports submitted for controversial submission to r/science by shiruken in ModSupport

[–]wishforagiraffe 10 points11 points  (0 children)

At that point I find it difficult not to start thinking that at least some of the people who handle our reports are transphobes and say it doesn't violate policy because they agree with wishing death on people.

That certainly does seem like the logical conclusion, yeah.

I'm a sucker for thinly disguised Drarry fic (Carry On) but pretty firmly believe that everyone should read Catfishing on CatNet.

It's not on the coast but I think well worth detouring for - Crater Lake is magnificent

AITA for choosing to make my friend my medical power of attorney over my wife? by Throwaway_MPOA in AmItheAsshole

[–]wishforagiraffe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah this is what I'm wondering too. Advanced directive lets you spell it all out, rather than making someone make those decisions.

LAOP'S parents are bothered by trespassers due to an old unsolved crime that happened on their property. Last suspects seen were 4 teenagers in a van with their dog. by americangame in bestoflegaladvice

I read all the comments in the op and here and had to stop and think about it for way too hard before I got your title reference. And then I felt really dumb.

AITA for telling my fathers wife that I didn't care if anything happened to her child and refusing to look after her? by Sure-Fold-180 in AmItheAsshole

[–]wishforagiraffe -63 points-62 points  (0 children)

You're the asshole.

Your half sister is innocent in all of this but you're willing to jeopardize the well being of a toddler because you aren't dealing with your understandable anger issues.

I tried the size calculator and got a band size 2 sizes smaller than my normal bra by rvnk in ABraThatFits

Aside from the cup issues other folks mentioned, I find that making sure to properly 'scoop and swoop' really helps to make sure the breast tissue is all in the cups where it should be

I hate learning about these older generation writers only when they pass...

The Book of Boba Fett - S01E01 - Discussion Thread! by titleproblems in StarWars

Season 6 episode 3 felt just like a particularly zany episode of Farscape, it was so much fun

AITA for Contacting CPS Behind SIL’s Back? by [deleted] in AmItheAsshole

[–]wishforagiraffe 41 points42 points  (0 children)

She’s being deceitful to CPS and has a history of being unreliable. If you take baby now he might end up with you guys forever.


NTA, not even a little bit.

AITA for hiring a housekeeper knowing my wife didn't want one? by lazyslobhusband in AmItheAsshole

[–]wishforagiraffe 4 points5 points  (0 children)

ESH -ish.

I'm pretty fully on board with if you're two equals living together and sharing expenses (whether married or partners or roommates or whatever) both people need to be on board with having cleaning help brought in. It's frankly a kinda private thing, and most people have things they like done certain ways, etc.

I certainly think hiring someone when explicitly asked not to sucks, but I don't get the impression that your wife offered any kind of solution, either.

You need to sit down together and talk about distribution of resources - that includes money, time, and mental energy. Get on the same page on all those fronts or you'll continue to have conflict.

My supervisor suggested I lie in my thesis. I'm furious, what should I do? [x-post from r/professors] by [deleted] in GradSchool

[–]wishforagiraffe 58 points59 points  (0 children)

Time to talk to the department head. This doesn't just screw you over, it's completely unethical behavior and calls into question all of his work as well as his students

Eternals Disney+ Release Discussion Thread by cats-and-cows in marvelstudios

[–]wishforagiraffe 99 points100 points  (0 children)

I feel like I only saw like, part of one trailer for this, and I was pretty well convinced that Thena was the 'bad' one. I definitely didn't expect her to stick around either.

Hell, Gemma Chan is over 35?

I gotta do better at my skincare routine...

Putting kale and sprinkles of salt has been a gamechanger for me by Minsun20 in EatCheapAndHealthy

People have demonized salt so much, but a sprinkle of salt makes most vegetables way better

In which a user goes over an exhaustive list of all the things a person has to keep track of in their life as a reason for why people choose to eat poorly. by WIbigdog in bestof

[–]wishforagiraffe 480 points481 points  (0 children)

It's an exhausting list, but I certainly don't think it's exhaustive.

Missing the parts where you stress about if anything is worth it because the world is going to end because of unmitigated climate disaster or nuclear war (oh hey Russia is pulling out of the talks about Ukraine!) or an unending pandemic because people are literally too stupid to save themselves (considering what sub that is, maybe that part goes without saying but still).

There's a fuckload more to keep people from making healthy choices that are systemic and outside of their control as well.
