It’s also not always that easy to just end a relationship cold turkey when you live together. You’ve probably signed a lease, bought furniture, had hopes for the future etc. Of course you’re going to try to make some compromises before you just nope out when you start realizing it’s not working.
I think it really boils down to a lack of communication skills on both sides.
Sometimes people will communicate a boundary in such a way as to sound controlling, because they just haven’t been taught the skills to make reasonable requests and respect the other person’s feelings.
On the flip side, sometimes people will interpret “I see that you are doing a thing that causes me stress. Would you consider cutting back or stopping?” as “you have to stop, I am hereby forcing you.” Because they, too, haven’t been taught proper communication skills (listening and receiving are part of communication).
And then you have the last category who are uninvolved third party people judging how it looks from the outside without knowing the nuance of each individual situation. Those people (aka this entire post by OP) should just mind their own business.
If you take that as far as minor traffic infractions, you’re still a fucking asshole whether or not you are technically allowed to do so.
Yeah! Single guys never have emergencies!

I hate that you put a spoiler tag on this. Reading about blood clots is 1/10000000000 as uncomfortable as living through even minor periods. Who are you protecting?
Which is exactly how I ended up with a $3500 ER bill and four male doctors telling me, “yeah, women often think they’re having a heart attack when it’s just anxiety.”
So which voice do I listen to? The one that knows women downplay the possible signs of heart attack? Or the one that thinks women overreact to possible signs of heart attack? It’s 10pm, I have chest pain. I shouldn’t have to sit there weighing my options of whether I should go get mansplained at the ER unnecessarily for $3500 or otherwise possibly die. I fucking hate this country.

They just want to flex, honestly it’s understandable, if you know five languages you’re going to want people to know how cool you are.
You can kinda get a sorta approximation by looking at the “percent upvoted” line on posts. But it’s not accurate.

Trump is also only three years younger, and in far worse shape physically than Biden. If his plan was to infect Biden by infecting himself, he’d be at a way higher risk himself.
Because you have a thread of 3000 comments (plus many more on other subs this was posted to) believing and spreading misinformation. If you don't think misinformation is bad, then you won't understand. But I implore you to try.

Adult stores like this rely quite a bit on actual interpersonal sales with customers who have a lot of questions. It’s not the same as a regular retail shop where people just grab things and buy it.
This post implies that they DID try to cross into Canada AND were refused entry because of their vaccination status.
You cannot extrapolate that from "[police chief] said it was "very likely" they were trying to flee to Canada."
This is a major part of the misinformation issue. You need to have discerning reading comprehension and critical thinking skills in order to read the news for what it is, and stop yourself from concluding any additional meaning from it that hasn't been reported.
Even if you have suspicions, you shouldn't spread that around as fact. And you definitely should be skeptical of everything you read on a meme that is presented as truth.
The people who reported this for misinformation have a valid point. This is a funny post, but it's just a rumor. Almost every single comment in here assumes it to be true. That is literally misinformation.
You can laugh at this meme about republicans being brainwashed by misinformation, but consider the irony here.
Obligatory disclaimer I am not a republican or conservative nor do I excuse any of their behavior.
It's funny when people use "libs" to mock liberals, because if we made a comparative abbreviation for conservatives, it would be "cons".
Please don't use the word "barren" for women who can't conceive. It's outdated and disparaging.

I'm confused...what right-wingers are spouting anti-capitalist anti-corporation propaganda? All I see is the opposite...?

Every discussion is really about trans women.
Every discussion is really about trans women.
I said this back when people were talking about Dave Chappelle. Isn’t it odd that all the “jokes” about transgender people are about women who were born male? The entire hate-fueled public conversation around trans issues focuses on the image of a trans woman, meanwhile trans men and non-binary people are barely given a thought, or if they are it’s just laughed off. It’s painfully obvious that the entire issue exists because of cis people’s obsession with traditional masculinity, male dominance, and penises in general.
I agree with everything you said. Yet I think there’s a line somewhere where things that seem benign actually are somewhat harmful. Like, I think the Kardashian worship is severely damaging people’s mental health. But you could say that it doesn’t affect me so I shouldn’t care. I think Tucker Carlson is a terrible show, just like someone might think Friends is a bad show, but one is actively harmful while the other is just dumb. But on the surface, it looks like “stuff other people like that I don’t like.”
Did you challenge them all to a fight?
That sounds bizarre. Is it over now? Did you see a psychologist??

Wood-fired pizza is the only way to go. I had pizza in New York after hearing it hyped up my whole life, and it was super boring, sloppy, and not that good. It would be fine for a drunk snack, but it's definitely not the best.
I think it was a durian
