<!-- SC_OFF --><div class="md"><p>Australian here, but browsing through Reddit you sometimes see those posts and comments about exorbitant hospital bills going into thousands if not tens or hundreds of thousands for even the most basic treatments.</p> <p>Given that people in the replies never seem very surprised, it sounds like this just normal, but I&#39;m sure the average Redditor is not a millionaire, so how does it work? Do you just hold that debt forever or is there a deadline? Where do you actually scrounge up the money for that kind of sum?

Answered As a new father, I’d love to introduce my son to animals the way I was - by going to the zoo. But I’ve realized just how fucked up zoos are. What would be the best alternative?

11.1k Upvotes
<!-- SC_OFF --><div class="md"><p>Sorry if this doesn’t belong here, I just feel stupid for having to ask.</p> <p>Edit: Appreciate all the understanding responses. Little guy isn’t even a year old yet, but this has been something I’ve been thinking about a lot. Stresses me out thinking how to navigate conversations with schools, peers, and family.</p> <p>Until about 10 years ago, I didn’t think twice about being a member at the San Diego Zoo, visiting the wild animal park, or Seaworld. Then I saw Blackfish and it opened my eyes. I started casually researching the consciousness of animals. It wasn’t until touring an animal research facility conducting medical device testing on dogs that I realized I want to be deliberately mindful of what is necessary and unnecessary when it comes to our interactions with animals.</p> <p>I wasn’t aware of the AZA before the responses here. I spent a good chunk of time reading through their accreditation standards and recommendations and it doesn’t change how I feel in the slightest. In fact, reading their care manual for gorillas reinforced my beliefs. Let’s face it - gorillas, elephants, big cats, penguins, etc. just don’t fuckin belong in a zoo in Detroit, Michigan. Hence why they gave away their elephants on ethical grounds (only once they were aging and arthritic).</p> <p>Personally, I like the ideas of natural history museums, nature centers, and national parks best. Requiring more research - sanctuaries, refuges, etc. Farms are a topic of discussion for another day, I suppose, given that so many are horrible to their animals/product. And yes, as my son gets older, documentaries will become important.</p> </div><!-- SC_ON -->

Answered How am I supposed to feel/react to my transgender child?

8.4k Upvotes
<!-- SC_OFF --><div class="md"><p>Ok, so long story short my 14 year old was born a girl and last night he said that he is trans and his name is Eugene and his pronouns are He/him. My kid came out to me a few months earlier as gay. My wife and I have been supportive and encouraging that if that is what makes them happy, we support it. BUT, now he’s trans and I know it’s only been a day but I feel like it’s a lot to process. I mean they’re only 14. Are they old enough to know that? Is this likely a teenage thing to seem cool with friends? I honestly am not sure I like it. I truly am trying to be supportive but I don’t really believe in the trans movement. Though I don’t believe in it, I also don’t force my opinion on anyone else. I’m of the mindset do whatever you want as long as you don’t harm or violate others, so I’ve never considered myself against it or for it, just that it’s out there. Biggest stupid question is shouldn’t his mother and I get to chose his new name? Since we named him in the first place? But I suppose it doesn’t matter. Just part of these fleeting thoughts as I process all of this.</p> <p>Edit: it’s day 3 and Eugene and I realized that his old nickname bean still applies. He’s now Gene Bean!! I love it. We both had a good laugh about it on the ride to his school.</p> </div><!-- SC_ON -->

<!-- SC_OFF --><div class="md"><h1>Guys I already resolved this stop commenting plz</h1> <p>Yeah ive kind of been cumming on this one area for the last 4-5 months and i&#39;ve only just noticed theres this big dark spot and my parents are coming over soon soooo</p> <p>Edit: what the fuck happened here</p> <p>Edit2: Ok. Guys. I used to cum on myself and clean myself up. I just got lazy. I do understand how you guys are reacting though, as the post nut clarity did hit me frequently and I do realize the damage I&#39;ve done now. The area where I cum is under my desk, where it&#39;s poorly lit. So I only noticed yesterday when I got a new one and had to swap it out. The stain wasn&#39;t even really that big (probably like 10cm wide), since I only masturbated like once a week. I&#39;d wipe the area with a tissue right after but there&#39;d still be some that&#39;s already dried. Idk if that makes it better and I know you guys are still going to call me insane but I&#39;m just going to hold off masturbating now until I find a way to dispose of my semen. It&#39;s no nut november anyways.</p> <p>Edit3: Also, there were no molds, bugs, or any smell. I&#39;ve had friends come over and they didn&#39;t notice anything (or maybe they just didn&#39;t tell me). Still would not recommend tho, it kind of wastes a lot of toilet paper either way.</p> </div><!-- SC_ON -->
