    [–] Trump tried to steer Melania away from anti-bullying campaign, report says misyo 1 points ago in politics

    You know, I have no issue with marriages made as a business arrangement. Most noble marriages throughout history were essentially business arrangements to control money and property between families. As long as they're both consenting adults and one of them wasn't groomed or pressured to marry, it's their marriage and they can do what they want with it. That doesn't make spousal abuse ok and I definitely think she's been verbally and emotionally if not physically abused by Trump. Just because she knew he was an egotistical ass hat doesn't mean abuse on his end is fine.

    I am curious to see their prenup though

    [–] Question for y’all misyo 2 points ago in liberalgunowners

    Quite a few people have pushed for gun laws like several European countries have in which medical history can be used to determine whether or not you receive a permit to own weapons. Almost any history of mental illness will get you denied a permit.

    TBF, I don't think anyone is a "fan" of abortion- they just recognize that it's a necessary service that should be available to women who need it.

    Can CFS not temporarily remove your daughter from their household if they are investigating both her ex and his spouse for abuse?

    [–] Is it possible to sue my father for physical, mental, emotional, sexual abuse/rape from when I was a child? misyo 1 points ago in legaladvice

    OP, you should still report your rape. Rapists often have more than one victim and your report might prompt police to take a closer look at him. You, sadly, are too late to see justice done for yourself, but it might be possible to help others if your father committed multiple rapes.

    She's the non-custodial parent with no visitation. She's paying a good chunk of support.

    I think someone who's had their rights removed should be able to petition the courts to have the reinstated and provide evidence that they're well now.

    My husband loves to tease me when I'm forced to go to Hobby Lobby for supplies for my business. I hate that company and if he's with me, he'll say stuff like "hear that? That's the sound of crushing disappointment from the millions of women you betrayed". 😒

    [–] My family recently bought a house only to discover that the people that remodeled it tried to hide urine marks everywhere. Is there anything we can do? misyo 26 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago) in legaladvice

    Yes. Urine, even human urine, can stain and ruin drywall, insulation, and the moulding on the floor. If it's bad enough and gets in cracks, it can seep into the wood behind the drywall, which would also have to be removed. You need to clean the urine off your walls (and floor if it runs) every time you pee on them using bleach a urine enzymatic stain remover. If this is a persistent problem, you should probably start sitting when you pee to avoid it, especially if you're a guest at someone's home.

    Edit: don't use bleach unless you want to experience WWI chemical warfare

    Agreed. I hate them. I don't have small hands for a woman but compared to most men, my hands are smaller. I still prefer a standard sized hand gun. The grip and weight are better for me. The tiny ones freak me out a bit to hold.

    I've found it's worse with older men. Most of the younger men are better about it. Though I do get irrationally irritated when they try to throw some tiny pink pistol in my hand right away...

    [–] OP had a painful c-section and wasn't listened to when she said she wasn't numb. Bad luck or malpractice? misyo 28 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in bestoflegaladvice

    It sounds like I'm trying to pregnancy-splain and dismiss a woman's concerns about her delivery. The tone is off, but the sentiment is the same. I want OP to feel confident going into a very stressful situation and these kinds of worries, while most pregnant women have them, isn't something I want her to dwell on. OP's feelings and concerns are valid though and I'm not trying to dismiss them at all.

    [–] [Politics] What's the most awkward moment you've had as a Liberal gun owner? misyo 3 points ago in liberalgunowners

    I mean, on the surface, I do understand a seller's initial thought that the interested party would be the husband/boyfriend/dad because female gun ownership is so low- especially if they approach as a couple. However, once it's clear she's interested, the seller needs to treat her just like every other male customer. There's also been plenty of times when I'm standing by the gun counter alone and was consistently ignored by vendors. That shit is unacceptable. Even if I knew nothing about guns and wanted to purchase or look at one, a vendor should still engage me like they engage everyone else. What if I had a stalker or a possessive ex-husband and needed protection?

    He didn't really realize what was happening. He thought the guy was speaking to both of us. I pointed it out to him and explained that it happens to women a lot. Once he realized what was happening, he was pissed. I don't expect men to always know when sexist shit is going down, especially in situations like that. He has his faults, but this isn't one of them.

    Fucking too right. OB's ignore pregnant women's concerns habitually. I had a friend who's daughter was diagnosed with Downs Syndrome at the hospital via genetics testing but her OB brushed her off for most of the day the pregnancy and told her it's all in her head. She brought in paperwork and everything and the OB STILL said the baby was fine. My friend was on MediCal so she had very limited options for a new OB and most of them didn't want to take her as a new patient at 5 months. Finally about 6 weeks before she was due, I went into her appointment with her, told the OB I was a patient advocate (I'm not, I'm just bitchy and look intimidating with a clipboard), and demanded she answer why she's been ignoring the diagnosis. We argued for a few minutes over it because I had actually been to my friend's genetic counseling session when they told her the baby had DS. The OB had us wait in the waiting room while she went over the paperwork. 20 minutes and a phone call to the hospital later, she comes out and admits the baby has DS. She had never read the fucking paperwork that the hospital sent or that my friend gave her. My friend agonized for months wondering whether her baby actually had DS and should have been treated as a high risk pregnancy.

    My hair stylist had this happen. You can tell just from talking to her that she's still traumatized by it and it's been nearly a decade.

    With the emergency C-sections, they need the baby out NOW. As in, five minutes or less from painkiller to baby out. Sometimes it's a better decision to let Mom be in agony to save the baby. It really really sucks but the opposite result is a dead baby or a baby with cerebral palsy.

    Yours will be much different. They take their time, make sure you're comfortable. I know pregnant women worry (understandably too!), but this scenario is extremely unlikely to happen to you, so try not to worry about this too much- especially since you didn't experience this the first time. Usually people who don't numb properly have nerve issues or they're red heads. If you feel any pain, say so immediately.

    From one pregnant woman to another, good luck Momma and enjoy your new little one.
