    [–] Russian troll sites infiltrated Donald Trump subreddit as recently as this month GlyphGryph 1 points ago in technology

    Respecting the rules of the sub and reddit in general will still get you banned, unless you're explicitly agreeable with whatever seems most popular.

    [–] [Serious] Women of Reddit, how old were you when you first experienced unwanted sexual attention? GlyphGryph 1 points ago in AskReddit

    This story. It's like "okay, that's clearly not cool but not too bad." to "wait, what? THAT was their response? Are they trying to promote future rapes here" and then "holy shit this kid is way fucking worse than the intro made him appear"

    That said, from what I've heard, this sort of behaviour in kids that age is often a strong indicator of the aggressive child having been sexually abused. Your shitty teachers may well have failed the both of you that day.

    Lots of people do.

    There's just no way to tell who those people are in advance. And they do seem to be pretty outnumbered. :(

    I feel like the "pedophile" vs "child molester" debate (unlike the ebophible one) is actually important to a certain extent. Actions vs Intentions, opportunism vs victim preference.

    Not enough to actually argue it beyond that though.

    This particular sub-thread seems to be about how common the predators need to be for the results we see.

    5% (1 in 20) seems like more than enough, considering predators (seem to) have a tendency to hit many targets.

    It could also be much higher though. Even 5% is terrifyingly high, really.

    It's infuriating. Just because you enjoy drinking with a guy on the weekend doesn't mean he isn't a disgusting predator when he's not having a lark down at the bar. Hell, I've heard this from women when it's brought up about their male peers. You think they'd know better!

    No, evil, manipulative, predatory, abuse behaviour... whatever it is, it is always somewhere "out there", it's never "people I know". Even though unless you've interacted with a dude (or any person really) in that particular way you don't really have much of an idea how he'd act in that scenario. This stuff doesn't transfer.

    Then of course there's the people who KNOW the guy is up to no good but like him enough to go to the mat for him anyway...

    [–] What's something you found out about your S.O years into the relationship that made you reevaluate the whole relationship? GlyphGryph 10 points ago in AskReddit

    It makes a lot of shared finance/insurance/medical rights/legal rights/ownership issues a LOT simpler. Very useful if one parent is a stay-at-home, since it gives them several hedges against misfortune.

    But then of course if you get divorced you gotta detangle all that.

    Don't know why I would open myself up to this pain again now

    Well, based on the stories so far, there's a 50% chance you end up meeting the love of your life, having an amazing relationship, and ending happily ever after.

    Scrabble is almost certainly considerably older than you are, assuming you're a demographically typical reddit user.

    Sure, but Scrabble dictionaries are re-released and updated pretty frequently.

    KO is more on par with OK than scuba or laser

    I guess, in that it's an initialism rather than an acronym?

    [–] Are Bisexuals being discriminated against, even in the LGBT community? GlyphGryph 3 points ago in sex

    I guess that makes sense. It just feels like, as a bisexual myself, its not really any different than any of the other things I listed, or having a kink my partners not into. I less than I want both, I'm just happy with either, so it's actually even less of a thing than a kink.

    Even if I was straight, my kinks wouldn't still be unfulfilled by any one person anyway. :V

    [–] Ok... GlyphGryph 1 points ago in funny

    I just listed a bunch of abbreviations it specifically allows, that are on par with ok.

    I actually do wonder when the initialized version of okay fell out of favour? I can't recall the last time I saw it written as "o.k.". Was it... ever? May have been before I was born, hah.

    [–] An Update: Feeling so Free GlyphGryph 3 points ago in polyamory

    The time starved thing is definitely something I sympathize with. Managing one partner plus a kid plus me time is already enough work, them having another partner is the only thing that lets me get time for myself sometimes, hah.

    I tried the temp-monogamy thing (both of us have one partner while we "work things out") for a while, but I found it just built dependency - I still felt like my partner was time starved, but this time by my hobbies, by my work, by my kid.

    So just keep in mind it takes work and both of you spending time working on your independence to avoid that, having a single partner isn't a silver bullet! It sounds like having time to yourself is important, so make sure to make space for that right from the get go, and that your partner has something of his own to do so as to avoid filling that space, and don't let it be chipped away over time, no matter what relationship you settle into long term. :)

    Luck and happiness to you!

    [–] Ok... GlyphGryph 1 points ago in funny

    It might have been an abbreviation of oll korrect at some point. It's been a long while since that was the case. Scrabble includes plenty of other started-as-abbreviations words like "altogether", "scuba", "never" and "laser", so that's clearly not a factor.

    [–] An Update: Feeling so Free GlyphGryph 9 points ago in polyamory

    Good luck in your future!

    I've never not been poly, but I have taken where I just had one partner, and time off from partners altogether. Right now part of the reason I'm doing the poly thing is because it means I do have time for all sorts of me things, and don't have to be the sole anchor for a partner. Yes, it's nice for me to see other people... but even better, my partners are also seeing other people!

    There's nothing wrong with deciding one's enough if that's what is right for you.

    [–] Are Bisexuals being discriminated against, even in the LGBT community? GlyphGryph 16 points ago in sex

    I've never known a single heterosexual or homosexual relationship where a perspective partner provided the other with everything they attracted to sexually. Hell, I don't even think that's possible, I've got multiple incompatible body shapes that turn me on (and plenty that don't, but I might pursue a partner without one of those shapes because of other attractive bits)

    Then again, I'm probably actively contributing to the "bisexuals are promiscious" myth because I'm seeing two girls (maybe three? Not sure if that counts) at the same time. Or would that require one of them to be a dude? I can never be quite sure)

    [–] Getting tested before sex and still use condoms GlyphGryph 2 points ago in sex

    I think twice a month is probably a bit TOO frequent for testing, but I get the gist of what you're saying.
