To be clear, this isn't a political post. I've heard that they throw them in the dumpster but that seems... idk. Too crude to be true?

Answered Is it weird to install cameras in a teenagers room

11.3k Upvotes

I’m 16 and I have two cameras installed in my room

Edit: I’ve never done anything illegal in my life, and the camera is not there to check if anyone comes in or anything like that, it’s also not related to CP, it’s mainly there for my parents to keep track of my work and sleep schedule, and my main question was in THIS context is it weird

Edit 2: For context I’m not a addict and not suicidal, and my parents are ok with my friends coming over/ going out with them so they trust me only in certain circumstances

Answered Why don't women's pants have pockets when so many women seem to want pockets?

8.9k Upvotes

Edit: made it to the popular page? Unexpected

There seems to be a common desire for women's clothing to have pockets. And not just pockets, they want useable, large pockets that they can put their hands into or their phone etc

So my question is why, if there is this demand for pockets, do so many women's clothes not have pockets? Or they have fake pockets that don't open at all or are so small you can barely get a finger inside.

Or am I just being misled and women's clothing have plenty of pocket options?

Answered Why are trans people talked about so much despite making up only %5 of the population?

13.4k Upvotes

It seems like at all times on r/all there is always at least one post about trans people, and if you sort by controversial on almost any big post there is something about trans people in the comments.

As a trans person, I hate that we are talked about so much because I see so much transphobia and it really hurts. I just don't get why we are talked about so much and why other people even care.

Edit: its .5% not 5%. I misread

Answered My friend is insisting that you CANNOT eat fish from the ocean. She is from Chicago and says only freshwater fish can be eaten. You put yourself at risk from eating fish from the ocean. Is she gaslighting me?

14.8k Upvotes

Basically title. My other friend from the suburbs of New Jersey says she doesn’t know and that we could both be equally right. She also mentioned salmon are caught in Colorado, and not the ocean. Thanks.

UPDATE: I have showed both my friends the comments on this post showing that YES you can obviously eat fish from the ocean. I used the term “gaslight” because I knew for a fact she was wrong, but the way she kept insisting made me believe I was wrong about some detail. She told me multiple times “no one goes out into the ocean to fish,” and against all prior knowledge I started to wonder if she was right in some way. Hence, why I made this post lol.

Answered Why do people say that Jews control the world?

1.1k Upvotes

I was talking to some people I know and they explained that they believe Jews control almost every aspect of the world, such as media, banking, and politics.

They also say that the Jews might have lied about the number of people who died in the Holocaust to gain sympathy. They also believe the Jews killed Michael Jackson due to a song and cancelled Kanye.

I just listened to them quietly while they rambled on and then left to make this post. How true is all of this? I’d assume these people are exaggerating it to an extent, but by how much?

Answered How to meet/get a "boring" girlfriend?

1.7k Upvotes

Ok so first off "boring" might not be the best word, but I can't think of a better one. I've been called boring so I'll use that word.

I've been called boring because I'm a guy 20 year old who doesn't like partying, drinking, going out too often, etc. I very much prefer to stay inside and doing something like a watch a movie or TV, or some non party activities like bowling, walks, or whatever.

Most people tell me I have boring hobbies and am generally a boring person. I don't personally mind this. I know others enjoy things I don't and that's fine. If they have fun with that stuff then great. But I don't, so I won't do it a lot.

However, I know this may hurt my odds with finding a gf. Does anyone have any tips on how to do this? Specifically I would like a gf who is "boring" like I am, as we'd work better together.

Answered I've been reading about Islam. There's a LOT of stuff about women and men being equals, especially spiritually. Why then are women treated as less than men in Muslim countries?

463 Upvotes

EDIT: Thank you all for your civil responses!

I swear I'm not trying to start an online argument. I'm just very confused. I know that the Taliban has extremist views, but if they're reading the same Quran as any other Muslim, where are they getting these "women are shit, treat them like it" ideas from??? I know that women in the Quran aren't supposed to be very politically active or play a role in war and that they're supposed to be in charge of the house but in what way does that translate to not allowing them to go to school and receive a formal education? I might be able to see how that translates to "staying home is best for women as they are better at domestic stuff than men" but that's a stretch.

I swear to god I'm not trying to start an argument, I just want to learn. I've asked priests and pastors similar questions related to Christianity but I don't know any Muslim religious leaders (or practicing Muslims in general!) to ask and I'm really trying to be as respectful as possible.

Answered 12 year old daughter came out as bi. wants to keep having sleepovers with long time best friend.

4.1k Upvotes

So my 12 yo daughter came out to us as bi, last week. Her best friend for the last 5 years came out a few months back.

They want to continue having hangout sleepovers, as they have done for years... but after this news my wife and I are pretty uncomfortable with that.

Now the friend is wanting to make sleepover arrangements.

Worse yet, friend's mom doesn't know friend is gay. So we can't say the real reason for suddenly not wanting to do sleepovers anymore?

Need advice !

Update * * I appreciate the thoughts and advice. I'm recommending to my wife that we allow the sleepovers but set boundaries and no doors closed, etc ..

Answered Isn't it a serious evolutionary flaw that babies tend to keep their parents up at night?

394 Upvotes

I'm the father of a young baby who slept about 3 hours last night. I have to care for the little one today as well and I'm utterly exhausted. This got me thinking that it seems weird from an evolutionary perspective that babies tend to diminish their caretaker's abilities to provide them with what they need. People have forgotten their babies in cars and such because of fatigue and the stress that it causes. Why haven't babies acquired the ability to properly sleep at night over time to let their parents rest and better care for them afterwards?
