    [–] Shower thought: Instead of complaining about the protesters at abortion clinics, we should make supportive, wholesome signs for potential patients to see as they walk in. caul1flower11 5 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Nobody wants to be surrounded by signs when they go to a doctor’s appointment. It should be a private medical procedure and women getting an abortion aren’t going to stop and read the signs; they are just going to see what looks like even more protestors bothering them.

    Your intentions are good but please people don’t do this. If you want to help donate to Planed Parenthood or some other pro-choice advocacy group.

    [–] My brother has severe Autism, ID and tonic-clonic seizures and is in a Alabama County Jail where they refuse to give him medication. caul1flower11 33 points ago in legaladvice

    NAL. Have you contacted the DA’s office? I would gather up all the documentation you have about his disability and give it to them. It doesn’t sound like your brother has a lawyer yet, but if he does they may be able to negotiate with the ADA and get him out of jail. It’s going to depend on who the ADA is in charge of the case, but they probably have no idea of your brother’s disability and might agree to a non-jail sentence once they know.

    If your brother qualifies for a public defender go to his arraignment and talk to them on his behalf.

    [–] HeldenTenors that started as Lyric Baritones caul1flower11 1 points ago in opera

    Well, he did start out as a baritone and managed to get a job with the Mexican Opera before he switched to being a tenor. It would be hear what he sounded like doing baritone roles then but I don’t think there are any recordings during that period.

    Placido Domingo. Unfortunately he’s gone back to thinking he’s a baritone again, though.

    [–] AITA for wearing a Star of David necklace when I'm not Jewish (religiously or biologically) caul1flower11 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    NTA. I’m Jewish and I think it would be offensive if you wore it as a fashion statement but it means something to you. Messianic Jews are NOT Jews, they are Christians.

    [–] I don't feel safe at work, but the problem is a service animal. [CA] caul1flower11 7 points ago in legaladvice

    NAL. You might be able to bring your own ADA rights into this. Employers are supposed to make reasonable accommodations for employees with health issues. If you are getting multiple panic attacks that could count, Not allowing in a fake service animal is a reasonable accommodation.

    [–] My pregnant wife is binge drinking while pregnant with our child and I seriously am worried caul1flower11 1 points ago in legaladvice

    Is there any hope of staging an intervention with friends and family? I can’t imagine that they would be okay with what she is doing given the pregnancy, and perhaps this way she could be coaxed into checking into rehab. Also, talk to her doctor.

    [–] Teacher sent home list with student names and bathroom schedule caul1flower11 16 points ago in legaladvice

    You know that the teacher has caused your daughter health issues and has put her on the wrong bus. I’m concerned that there are probably instances of abuse or mistreatment that you don’t know about. I would report this to the administration and the teacher’s licensing board. I also would recommend pulling her out immediately if at all possible,

    Also, I would imagine that there are other parents who are upset about the list as well. It’s worth reaching out to them; many parents complaining will be more persuasive to a school than just one.

    [–] AITA for not wanting attention from a forward special needs customer? caul1flower11 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    NTA, but you should be more clear with your supervisor. Say exactly why he makes you uncomfortable, and make it clear that this is about a creepy older male, not the fact that he’s special needs.

    [–] AITA for making an in appropriate joke to my coworker? caul1flower11 3 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    ESH. What you did was extremely inappropriate for the workplace, but given that she touched your genitals beforehand I can see how boundaries became blurred. Do you guys even have an HR department? If so they’re asleep on the job.

    [–] My single mom adopted a 6yrold and wants me to be the dad. caul1flower11 7 points ago in JUSTNOMIL

    I really think you should contact at least the case worker your mom worked with for the adoption, if not CPS. That poor child is being emotionally manipulated and it will only get worse from here on out. You should have them check for signs of any abuse as well.

    I’m amazed we didn’t get a whole scene dedicated to her trying to get off the floor

    Peanut butter is bad... They specifically give it to starving kids in Africa to help boost weight gain.

    [–] My 600-lb Life - Where Are They Now - 4x13 - "Milla and Charity" - Episode Discussion caul1flower11 1 points ago in My600lbLife

    It’s not with WATN episodes it’s with regular episodes. All are available. What an angry person you are.

    [–] My 600-lb Life - 7x14 - "Annjeanette's Story" - Initial Episode Discussion caul1flower11 5 points ago in My600lbLife

    Law enforcement tends not to take it seriously. There’s also the trope that women can’t be abusers which keeps victims from getting help.

    [–] Something similar to "The Martian" by Andy Weir caul1flower11 1 points ago in suggestmeabook

    Dark Matter by Blake Crouch is a good science fiction book with a similar cinematic feel.
