    [–] Do you ever get angry when you think about how the world treats trauma victims? BoinkBoinkEtAliae 6 points ago in CPTSD

    I'm so sorry you're going though that. Its weird how people who accept physical illnesses and disabilities have no sympathy or understanding for mental ones.

    [–] Show about ISIS is basically the Handmaid’s Tale set in Syria [no spoilers] BoinkBoinkEtAliae 14 points ago * (lasted edited 4 hours ago) in TheHandmaidsTale

    Why? Fundamentalist Christians in America are basically the same as the fundamentalist Muslims that rule Iran now. They both don't believe in women's rights, gay rights, or racial and religious equality, and they both want to make religious law into government law.

    The only difference is in America is that our government isn't centralized enough to seize power quickly and effectively like in Iran, but now that the GOP owns all three branches of the government they can certainty begin the process.

    [–] Top Minds forget what the T in LGBT stands for. BoinkBoinkEtAliae 5 points ago in TopMindsOfReddit

    I imagine it's 80% confused people, 15% Milo Yiannopoulos sock-puppet accounts, and 5% Russian trolls.

    [–] [Spoilers S3E2] Episode Title & Hints of What's to come from EM's IG BoinkBoinkEtAliae 12 points ago in TheHandmaidsTale

    All aboard the hype train!

    I can't wait, I'm really excited for this season. I feel like it will be something new.

    Nope he is 100,000% serious

    [–] Northern Ireland’s abortion laws negatively affect the quality and safety of women’s healthcare and can have serious implications for women’s physical and emotional health, finds a new study. The findings suggest a public health rationale for decriminalising abortion. BoinkBoinkEtAliae 1 points ago in science

    Because criminalizing abortion in the U.S. DID NOT solve the problem. The abortion rate was higher before Roe vs. Wade than it is now. So other factors clearly have more of an influence on abortion than it's legal status.

    The same is true of drugs- despite being largely illegal since the Harrison Act, Americans continue to use drugs even more than they did before the zero tolerance crackdowns of Nixon and Reagan. Some issues, like abortion and drugs, are clearly not solved by criminalization.

    Maybe someone finally got sick of it being a hub for child porn

    [–] My (23/M) parents (55/M & 50/F) have been physically and emotionally abusive most of my life and I feel like everyone expects me to be ok with it and act like nothing ever happened. BoinkBoinkEtAliae 3 points ago in relationships

    Please, do yourself a huge favor and get trauma therapy. Some many people who go through abuse end up with trauma and don't realize it. It will also help you start sorting out how to deal with abusers and gaslighters like your family and their apologists.

    [–] TIL: In a report from 2013, most of the funds raised by the NFL don't fund cancer research. In the end, after everybody has taken their cut, only 8.01% of money spent on pink NFL merchandise is actually going towards cancer research. BoinkBoinkEtAliae 1 points ago in todayilearned

    It's not hard to research a local charity and figure out if it's legit or not. Local charities are usually more dependent on volunteers instead of paid staff, and so you can volunteer with the org and find out pretty quickly if they do actual good or not.

    I never said take every local charity at face value, I just said they are safer bet, and they are, because you can actually get into the org and since they serve smaller communities, it's easy enough to figure out if they making a difference or not.
