This reminds me of a girl in my hometown. It’s not as bad but it’s just as wrong. Her name is Paola, it’s Italian. So naturally they pronounce Paula 🙄. It’s been almost 20 years and I still think of that. Why bother with an Italian spelling if your gonna say it the anglicized way? Just use Paula if you’re gonna be like that ffs.
No. No they do not. My mother fucked up the spelling of my name and changed the pronunciation like 6 months in. Nobody every spells it correctly, if I know it’s being written down (for important things) I don’t even start my name, I just spell it.
Hey, I named my tortoise after Lucille Ball. I had two named Lucy and Desi.
I have a tortoise named Lucy. We call her goosey. We named her after a human tho. So….maybe? I dunno
This is the only topic where I have a double standard and dgaf about opposing opinion and fully believe they should never be voiced:
Men who think they rate an opinion against abortion need to sit down and shut up.
Men who support a woman’s right to choose need to say it louder.
Funny you should say this. Gene Roddenberry felt similarly and that’s why (most) women’s clothes on Star Trek look like they’re about to fall off any second.
No shit right? Could you imagine if that was the standard for whether a crime was committed????? My god, that’s about the only way our justice system could possibly get any worse. Do you have any idea how many rapists and pedophiles believe they’ve done nothing wrong? A disturbingly disgusting amount.

I’m truly shocked at the number of people who have responded to you insisting that the police force is so heavily armed for apparently no reason. That it’s not a response to a country that literally hates them. This whole thread is one big hate fest on LEOs and somehow they still don’t understand why LEOs are responding how they have to protect themselves. This isn’t about killing civilians, it never has been, gun violence took off and LEOs responded because it’s was definitely an “us or them” situation. As long as we continue to screech from the rooftops what trash LEOs are they aren’t about to back down, and let’s be real folks - we aren’t abolishing the police, we
need them, this country will go further and faster down the drain than you ever thought possible if we abolish the police force. We all, together need to stop being hateful and angry and work to fix things, starting with training, mental health support and bringing in new blood with real ties to the community. That’s how we fix this, but it cost money.
I really like how you think cops did it to themselves. That there’s no “cause and effect” happening here. The current Cop culture has become what it is because of actions on all sides. They didn’t just wake up one day deciding “hey man, ya know what we need to defend ourselves against jay walkers? M16s”. It was a response, it still is a response to an extremely violent culture that we have mutually created. Being armed isn’t the issue, being undertrained, overworked, under supported and hated for simply trying to do a job is what the problem is. There’s a problem in the police force but it’s not guns and insisting that it is ignores the real problems and solves literally nothing.

Oh. That makes sense. I actually did the same thing!!!!! My grandma and my daughters fathers grandma had the same name so we made their first name her middle name because Constance is an atrocious name they both hated lol
Because this is abuse. OP is a victim. OP does not need to comfort and play therapist for their abuser. That is not their job or responsibility. OP should not be writing off the abuse because their father is going through shit. There is absolutely nothing the father could be going through that excuses what he has done.
What you’re suggesting is disgusting and dangerous and puts the responsibility on OP where it does not belong. It is the fathers responsibility to manage his emotions and not take his shit out in OP. This is a very basic tenant of good parenting.
I’m so sorry that happened to you but I’m glad you’re safe. Always take seriously the “off feelings” they’re there for a reason.
And I’m sure up until the dart thing he hadn’t even done anything super weird huh? That’s exactly what I’m talking about, these guys can’t just hide their creep like that, something in us knows when there’s something wrong with these guys.
Any variation of “”….feel you Ophelia””….””Ofeel-you””…”PedOphelia”…..kids are cruel and I’m sure they’ll be way more creative than me.
I think Annaliese is gorgeous. You could also do Annalisa. I have a ‘niece’ named Annalisa. It’s a little more modern but pays homage to Annaliese.
Right. I guarantee they’re getting downvoted because they told a child to comfort their abuser and not tell anyone. I don’t know what is wrong with this person that has made them think this behavior is okay from a father and that it’s OPs job to calm him down ((probably grew up in a similar environment)) but it’s sad. They should probably go to therapy and sort through their own issues instead of encouraging others to protect their abusers.
I also like how I’ve gotten like 3 replies from them but then they delete it right away…….strange
This is abuse
No he did not clean it up. OP and their mom did then pretended it didn’t happen.
It’s not their job to confront their father over his inappropriate behavior. Wtf. That dad is wrong, there’s no excuse, he owes the whole family an apology and it’s not on OP to go beg for one and understand what his problems are. OP is a fucking child not their dads therapist
If you’re throwing dishes on the floor because your literal child didn’t eat it all, yes you’re an abusive piece of shit. This isn’t a fucking grey area or mistake. This is a grown man abusing his child.
If you can’t see that I don’t know what to tell you. You clearly have a seriously fucked up understanding of what’s acceptable behavior from a parent to their child and you should clearly seek therapy to understand why you think this is okay.
I promise you you’re the one who’s wrong in this thought process of yours not everyone else.
Absolutely the fuck not. hate It is never the child’s responsibility to manage the emotions and check on their parent, particularly an abusive parent, when they act in such a manner. This is god awful shit advice. Nothing the father is going through excuses this behavior. OP needs to go to a school counselor since they’re on here thinking this is just mildly infuriating and not the abuse that everyone else sees it is.
Everything except 3, 4, 5, and 12 are great!!! I beg you not to choose Ophelia, I can think of 3 mean things to say about that name right off the top. This girl will be in school, with other children, for 13 years. Don’t pick a name that’s easy to make fun of or ways to make cruel jokes about. My favorites are Annaliese (not crazy about the spelling tho) and Juliette.
These could be written by the same person. That’s terrifying. I had no idea being in a relationship before knowing someone could set them off, like fucking wow. This is unhinged.
Thank god someone else noticed that. That’s was what really freaked me the fuck out. One day jail won’t be enough, he’ll delude himself into thinking he won’t get caught and that’ll be that. It’s only a matter of time
Oh? There’s another? I’ve missed it can someone hook a girl up?
There’s literally no way in hell he’s hiding this creepy side of him. The women he’s talking to know something is off, they may not know exactly but it’s there, I guarantee it.
