My parents didn’t like it AT ALL when I played that album’s CD as a teenager. 😁

I can’t tell if this is sarcasm

‘God told Claudia this was happening because she was never meant to be a mother,’ Wise wrote.

Claudia told police she did not take drugs and has no history of mental illness. Asked if she had caused her daughter’s death she replied ‘in a way’

So did she actually hallucinate this advisement from “God”, or did she just want a reason to escape motherhood? I don’t understand how you could do that to anyone, let alone your own three-year-old child.

What the fuck. 😢😢😢

That strategy hasn’t let me down yet.

Definitely, at least when it comes to most people.

While everyone should do it in some capacity, working on yourself can only go so far if you struggle in social situations because of the symptoms of disorders like autism or ADHD. Sometimes the difficulty to connect stems not from a problem with what the person is doing or saying, but others’ perception of it.

But of course, the types of people they’re surrounded by can affect things a lot, too, especially when there are differences in background, culture, or belief.

In addition to what’s already been said, he was also accused (by a former body guard) of grooming Usher :(

Based on everything I’ve heard , that claim doesn’t exactly sound far-fetched.

I love Aldi, but why does every location in my city seem to have such a lackluster selection of frozen veggies in comparison to other grocery stores??? It’s been this way for years.

I just want to have the option to buy the big bags of broccoli/stir fry veggies/ect. that have enough for more than one meal, not the little steamable ones that seem to be more expensive and probably waste more plastic.

It takes much more effort to make a healthy well-rounded meal than just scrambling up “a few eggs”. I’m happy you have enough time, energy, and physical ability to spend an hour making dinner, but a lot of people don’t.

Some have multiple jobs, kids, disabilities, ect. Others live in food deserts where it’s impossible—or at least very difficult—to find cheap, healthy food. Not to mention the people who were never taught how to cook, and would have to spend even more time, energy, (and very possibly wasted food) on learning how.

This is coming from someone who can and does cook cheap, healthy meals all of the time.

Gee, straw man, you somehow wrote an entire paragraph while ignoring literally all of my points 👍

lady_maria,
@lady_maria@lemmy.world avatar

The fact that I had several points (in a single comment, mind you) does not mean that they keep changing. I suggest you revisit what moving goalposts actually means.

It’s been my experience that it takes less time and money to make a healthy meal at home. I don’t know why that’s a problem to you.

That’s been my experience, too. Like I’ve already said, I frequently cook cheap, healthy meals at home. I rarely eat fast food.

But my original points aren’t centered around my—or your—personal experience; we’re not the only two people who exist. Everyone has varying degrees of resources and ability.

TIL that merely mentioning the struggles and limitations that disabled people face—as a disabled person—within a seemingly cordial discussion about peoples’ access and ability to cook healthy meals means I’m literally ATTACKING the point of the person I’m replying to.

Assume that a woman isn’t just a man with different bits.

Emotional intelligence, empathy, and maturity; knowing when it is more beneficial to be gentle or to just observe/remain quiet; understanding how to take advantage of others’ gender-based assumptions/underestimation; and a deep solidarity with other women.

“If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.”

It isn’t binary or nearly as easily defined as transphobes claim; there’s more to it than just chromosomes and genitalia.

lady_maria,
@lady_maria@lemmy.world avatar

Are you a transgender person? If not, why would that determination be up to you?

lady_maria,
@lady_maria@lemmy.world avatar

You are allowed a voice, yes. Haven’t you just used it?

Your right to use your voice doesn’t protect you from potential criticism from those who hear it. You do not have the authority dictate what is acceptable/unacceptable regarding trans issues as a cis person (nor what we should call trans people), just as I—another white cis person—have no right to claim what is or isn’t okay when it comes to issues unique to POC.

I don’t have the background and life experience of non-white/trans people, so I’ll continue to follow and amplify the words of those in any marginalized group that I am not a part of. There are enough people ignoring and talking over them already.

I’m feeling frustrated because last week, I learned that I won’t be able to schedule my surgery for my broken shoulder for at least a month. 🙃

Feeling a lot of anxiety about the whole thing… the potential long-term effects, the amount of extra pain I’m experiencing while actively working (at a job where I literally just type), the fact that I think I probably also have couple of bone (or at least deep-tissue) bruises that are making it painful to walk, simply existing in public spaces in and around vehicles, and of course the incident itself. Ugh.

Anyway, I’m at least grateful that my job is remote. I also just finished the base game of Horizon Forbidden West, which I really enjoyed.

lady_maria,
@lady_maria@lemmy.world avatar

Yeahhh… thank you. The thing is, I’ve been desperately pining for a wfh job for a long time, and I’m actually still in training. This all happened on the second to last day of “in-office” work before they planned to let me work 100% remotely.

It’s a small company, and the people seem really great so far, but I doubt they’d allow me to not work for probably closer to two months as a trainee. I also can’t really afford that.

The delay is caused by my needing both an MRI and a follow-up appointment with an orthopedic surgeon, so sadly an earlier surgery isn’t likely to happen.

I like how gender works for the Gethen in Ursula LeGuin’s The Left Hand of Darkness.

omg… this fucking game.

My SO and I have been playing the expansion; I’m trying so hard to take it slowly and savor every moment and the wide range of emotions that accompany them.

I can’t wait for them to catch up to me because today I found

(spoiler!)the reel that shows that the the deer-owl aliens were seemingly KILLED by the goddamn Eye of the Universe?!?!

lady_maria,
@lady_maria@lemmy.world avatar

Thanks for asking! Right now I’m still just waiting around; I need surgery because of the nature of the break and its interference with my rotator cuff, but I need an MRI/follow-up before it can be scheduled. So it won’t be until at least the 23rd.

I had some deep-tissue bruises that hurt even more than my shoulder for a while, which made it hard to walk, but they finally mostly healed.

My shoulder isn’t too bad if I don’t move it, but it actually hurts a lot more than usual this morning. The doctor only gave me a few of the weakest non-OTC painkillers you can get, so I’ve had to ration them for when the pain is at its worst. So I’m relying on acetaminophen and ibuprofen, which doesn’t really cut it tbh.

lady_maria,
@lady_maria@lemmy.world avatar

Thank you! I appreciate it. I don’t really have particularly severe chronic pain, but my SO does, so I’m familiar with how hard it can be to get serious pain relief and how horribly frustrating that can be.

imo, it’s cruel whether the pain is chronic or acute. I guess I get why they’re so stingy, but there needs to be a lot more grace for pain patients. It’s not just about pain, but mental health, too. :/

I was definitely a little surprised and annoyed about it. Clearly there’s no questioning the fact that I’ll be in significant pain for (at minimum) a month, so why are you giving me only 6 days’ worth? Are decent scripts reserved for only the people who are literally on their death bed???
