I'm comfortable sharing any and everything online that I'd share in person. It doesn't make me uncomfortable, and I'm a typically somewhat open book kind of person, so I have no fear of anyone "discovering" something I wouldn't tell them in person anyway.
The only exception is anything related to sex on FB. My family's on there! View Thread
I would spend up to $300 to save my cat. That's what's currently saved in our vet fund for her, and unfortunately beyond that there would be no reasonable way for me to afford to be able to save her.
I love my lil' Zelda, and I've done all that I can to make sure her life is comfortable and happy. She's up to date on shots and we spend an hour a day on focused kitty time, lovin' up on her and playing with her lazer pointer. She loves it! It'd break my heart to have to put her up for adoption or God forbid put her to sleep, but she's a pet.
She's not a child, she's not equal to a human, and there's no way I'd force my animal through the indignity of being treated in a way that would scare her and that she wouldn't understand. I adopted her from an absolutely horrible living situation, and I'm never going to see her suffering and slinking around all scared the way she did the first month we had her. If she has a horrible condition that's going to be painful and scary for her, I'd want her to go out with as much dignity, love and joy as possible.View Thread
Who applies at Hooters not expecting to be objectified? Who applies for a job at Disney and doesn't expect to have to look family friendly? I think it's ridiculous to not anticipate a company having a guideline for how they want their employees to dress.
In the same way one needs different certifications to be eligible for a job, I think it's reasonable to expect there to also be dress codes.
Why did this woman not raise an objection at her interview? I personally wouldn't want to work as a waitress in a skimpy skirt so I understand her gripe, but there's no way that that was just sprung on her. I think it's the responsibility of the applicant to ask questions about what is expected of them though, and then up to themselves to determine if that's what they want to do.View Thread
I think it's bizarre that people then don't just stop and think for themselves! I mean, the kind of person who finishes a huge drink that they're not thirsty for just seems dumb to me, to be frank.
I think this whole issue plays into something I hate about the American attitude regarding food and drink. Humans need to eat and drink to stay alive, not for sociability or to fill up the holes they feel in their personal lives. We're encouraged to super size everything because, hey, for ten cents more we get twice as much. I think that culture encourages laziness and a lack of personal responsibility with people and their health, and when we have a country of people eating with their hearts and wallets and not their stomachs, well, is it a shock that our obesity rates are outrageous?!
I just also guess I don't see where it's beneficial to have a "policy" regarding food that isn't "Stop drinking when you're not thirsty and stop eating when you're not hungry". I think the fact that Americans "need" legislation for this is a damn shame, and I don't think it's really the level of involvement I want from the city in which I would live.View Thread
I don't see an issue with it. I'd rather a kid get handcuffed than tear his arm out of his socket trying to restrain him or have him injure either himself, a teacher or another student in a rage.View Thread
I view this the same way as I view any kind of random cosmetic surgery. I don't doubt that it's unhealthy and not conducive to building a better life, but if people have the money and desire, it's their body, so why not?
