    [–] TIL The Lincoln Memorial is also actually The White House DiplomaticCaper 2 points ago in RedcapLogic

    Thinking that women can do anything besides serve as ornamentation for men is political, I guess.

    [–] Uhhhhh?? This is a joke, right? DiplomaticCaper 2 points ago in DefectiveDetectives

    Living in South Florida, the name Irma just reminds me of a hurricane that knocked out our power for a week and a half.

    A bit apropos for the natural disaster that is LuLaRoe.

    [–] One of the LAOP's relatives is homeschooling her kids but is seems there isn't any "schooling" going on. DiplomaticCaper 75 points ago in bestoflegaladvice

    We need stricter regulations on home schooling.

    But it’ll never happen in the U.S. because of “religious freedom”, and the right of parents to protect their kids from the evil, secular, liberal school system.

    [–] In which LAOP is told he will be arrested if he returns to a public park DiplomaticCaper 13 points ago in bestoflegaladvice

    I feel like this is more likely to be true if LAOP isn’t white.

    We’ve seen multiple cases of the cops being called on POC for doing nothing but existing in a public space.

    [–] Sassy Red Lipstick / Robbie Tripp April 15-22 DiplomaticCaper 1 points ago in blogsnark

    I’ve heard the phrase “five star pussy” used before, usually by rappers.

    It’s supposed to be like a five out of five review of a restaurant or movie: virtually perfect.

    The womb part makes the phrase even more uncomfortable.

    [–] Welcome to the Bible Belt DiplomaticCaper 1 points ago in religiousfruitcake

    Maybe they didn’t have any asterisks available in that sign lettering?

    [–] Welcome to the Bible Belt DiplomaticCaper 6 points ago in religiousfruitcake

    In that case I would’ve expected them to say “H***boy” tbh

    [–] AITA for being mad about a kid’s peanut allergy at a professional baseball game? DiplomaticCaper 28 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    They could’ve also used their words, instead of glaring at OP for an hour. Peanut allergies aren’t obvious.

    [–] AITA for being mad about a kid’s peanut allergy at a professional baseball game? DiplomaticCaper 0 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    Those restaurants usually warn people with signs outside. I know Five Guys does, since they give free peanuts.

    It’s worse for a baseball game vs. a restaurant, because in the latter there are direct competitors as alternatives. But someone posted above that more teams are creating peanut-free sections, which sounds like a great idea.

    Even banning peanut sales altogether is better.

    If the stadium is selling it, you should be allowed to eat it there. Obviously don’t be a dick and actively try to maximize the kid’s peanut exposure when you’re eating, but if his allergy is that bad, his parents need to be more careful.

    As long as you’re not in their face taunting them with peanuts, NTA.

    [–] LAOP (21M, autistic and on medication for psychosis and ADHD) has been lured to court by their mother who managed to obtain legal guardianship over him. Now what? DiplomaticCaper 2 points ago in bestoflegaladvice

    Britney is an odd case, because you’d really think her conservatorship would’ve been lifted by now: it’s been nearly a decade and she was performing and raising her kids without issue for years.

    Is conservatorship a lifelong thing, or can someone eventually be taken off it?

    [–] LAOP has a 16-year-old acquaintance who appears to live alone. Among the advice to call CPS are a few dissents. DiplomaticCaper 4 points ago in bestoflegaladvice

    This sounds like some Gossip Girl shit. Makes me think of super wealthy parents that just throw money at their kids and basically let them live on their own in lieu of actually raising them.

    [–] The 'ol ADA frivolous lawsuit scam. Settle! It's cheaper than defending yourself! DiplomaticCaper 0 points ago in bestoflegaladvice

    If it’s true and all those businesses were inaccessible to wheelchairs, I don’t see the problem in filing multiple suits.

    There are probably other handicapped people who struggled with inaccessible locations and just didn’t make the effort to file a complaint.

    [–] The 'ol ADA frivolous lawsuit scam. Settle! It's cheaper than defending yourself! DiplomaticCaper -9 points ago in bestoflegaladvice

    TBH, if they are violating the ADA, the businesses are getting what they deserve.

    These law firms would just lose money if they went out looking for violations and found none.

    [–] LA goes off the rails trying to explain why American Conservatives care so much about defending Israel's interests DiplomaticCaper -7 points ago in bestoflegaladvice

    To be fair, they may also catch some legit full-on white nationalists that hate Jewish people in the net.

    But I agree the general aim is to retaliate at anyone who expresses any solidarity with the Palestinians, which is mostly a left-wing view in the west.

    [–] Redditors in hiring positions: What small things immediately make you say no to the potential employee? Why? DiplomaticCaper 1 points ago in AskReddit

    It’s not because they thought you were unfriendly, per se.

    It’s more like if the hiring manager thinks that black people are more angry and combative, and judges an interviewee with that preconceived notion in mind.

    It would be very hard to make a legal case for discrimination in that instance, but not impossible, particularly if there is a pattern with multiple candidates. More likely is that the EEOC could start an investigation, where they have undercover applicants of different races with identical resumes and professional dress and behavior; even that’s not a smoking gun, but it would be a bigger clue.

    [–] They won’t call them “deviled” eggs!! 😂😂 DiplomaticCaper 7 points ago in FundieSnark

    I remember an interview with Katy Perry where she said that her parents did the same thing and called deviled eggs something else when she was growing up. I think it was also angel eggs.

    [–] To this man, diversity is on par with murder and rape.... DiplomaticCaper 12 points ago in BestOfOutrageCulture

    They’ve also floated the idea of revoking birthright citizenship. Sometimes only going forward, but sometimes retroactive.

    I’d be fucked.

    Birthright citizenship was initially created to enfranchise former slaves (because it used to come from your parents, and if a former slave’s parents were also slaves, it was a catch 22 and you could never be a citizen.) they’d probably consider it a feature and not a bug, though.

    [–] AITA? I (21F) just had an abortion and my bf (29M) thinks I’m overreacting DiplomaticCaper 93 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    TBH I would’ve thought he’d feel relieved if he thought that was the case.

    He probably didn’t want her to have an abortion, and didn’t say anything at the time. Instead, he’s now attempting to guilt her, ironically proving that he would be a bad choice as a father.

    Honestly, people need to talk about what they would do in the event of an unplanned pregnancy in advance. Someone who plans to have an abortion in those circumstances probably isn’t compatible with someone who is anti-abortion.

    [–] "I actually drive better after I've had a few beers" starter pack DiplomaticCaper 1 points ago in starterpacks

    I know it’s not.

    But there’s a middle ground between reefer madness and “marijuana cures all diseases and has no harmful effects to anyone whatsoever”.

    I understand why people have been defensive in the past, but still.

    People can completely fuck up their lives by getting drunk all the time, but it’s legal for them to do that, so it should be legal for weed.

    Some stoners are in denial that smoking weed can have a similar impact in some cases—it may not be physically addictive, but people can become psychologically addicted and effectively end up like alcoholics. Nobody pretends that excess alcohol consumption isn’t bad for you.

    [–] "I actually drive better after I've had a few beers" starter pack DiplomaticCaper 13 points ago in starterpacks

    Weed should be fully legal like alcohol is.

    That also means you have the responsibility to not drive or do anything similar while under the influence.

    It’s still a mind-altering substance.

    [–] So I followed JRod's makeup tutorial as closely as I could... DiplomaticCaper 5 points ago in FundieSnark

    The brands probably make a difference. If she’s using some crappy shit like Younique, that “adds” to the look.

    [–] Inside The World Of Stay-At-Home Moms Who Blog For Profit (aka How Bland and Savvy Christian SAHMs Make $$$ via Affiliate Links and Printables) DiplomaticCaper 27 points ago in blogsnark

    I need to read the article, but I find it less objectionable if they’re actually selling a product or service without trying to recruit other people to sell it too.

    Affiliate marketing can get scammy at times (depending how reps do it), but you usually don’t have to pay to sign up and buy the products yourself in order to earn your commission. It’s just if someone buys it, you get a cut.

    [–] Oh boy DiplomaticCaper 23 points ago in TheRightCantMeme

    LOL I remember reading about how people freaked out back in the ‘70s when he admitted having had “lust in his heart” for a woman other than his wife.

    Seems so quaint now, looking at Trump.

    Jimmy Carter also had to divest his peanut farm when he was elected.
