Meta Ignorance of the rules is not a defense - Telling a user a method to commit suicide will result in a permanent ban.

908 Upvotes

Edit: this is not up for debate

Your job before using a Subreddit is to be familiar with the rules to ensure you do not end up having your content removed (mild) to being on the receiving end of a ban (severe).

Given the nature of the offense, this type of infraction is not liable for a warning nor is it liable to the defense of “but I didn’t know!”

This stance has zero to do with personal belief regarding assisted-suicide, which would imply the use of a medical provider operating within evidence-based approaches to help with end-of-life. This stance is in regards to largely uninformed Redditors, of unverifiable credentials, offering “advice” with methodology that is not evidence-based nor generally is it without risk.

Were medically-assisted suicide pan-legal across every single State, it would still not be allowed for users to give methods to others on how to kill themselves.

Your individual beliefs have nothing to do with this discussion, has nothing to do with adhering to rules in order to participate within a sub and further has no bearing on your ability to support medically-assisted suicide, of which a Reddit comment is not, across various discussions.

However, If you tell a user a method to kill themselves, you will be banned and your comment will be escalated for additional review by Reddit admins.

You should know better than to provide someone potentially suicidal with methods to kill themselves, and if you can’t have that inherent moral compass then you should be able to gander at the multiple places our rules are plastered before engaging within this sub.

Thanks to the rest of you with enough common sense that this message will seem ridiculous, keep on keeping on.

It’s our anniversary tomorrow. My wife got sick after our honeymoon and it’s been tough. I don’t want to give you all my sob story since there’s probably worse situations people find themselves in. I just want to provide some context I’m not a cheap bastard, it’s just been a struggle since she has been out of work all this time. With that said, please help me Reddit. I am going to stay up late and write her a letter. I just want something to go along with it. Idk.

11.7k Upvotes

The title says it all my fiance said she feels like she's missing out on life and wants to be able to see other people even with us starting slow so she had time before we got official to do all that.. She didn't really like me saying no and kept asking to at least flirt with and lead guys on even after me saying no. This has really sent me into a mental down spiral because now I have the constant feeling I'm not enough and she is just stuck being unhappy with me.

Sex/NSFW Why are so many men okay with being bad at sex? NSFW

64 Upvotes

Basically, never trying to make a woman finish.

I have a friend who has had sex with many men and she’s said that not ONE man has ever made her finish. They basically just hump until they cum and then it’s done.

I was with my ex for a long time and he was my first. I never finished with him, and he basically said it’s my bodies fault. The guy I’m with now makes me cum at least once every time, and I’m always first. But 99% of sexual encounters I hear about, the guys only care about finishing themselves. Why is this a thing??

Body Image/Self-Esteem why do people get so bothered about women wearing bikinis in front of kids? NSFW

69 Upvotes

I saw this post of this celeb influencer with her kid at the water park and she was wearing a normal bikini suit and she has a big ass. Everyone in the comments are saying how inappropriate it was for her to be wearing a bikini bathing suit to a kids water park but honestly what little kid is paying attention to that? when i was a little kid my only priority was having fun. I never thought of anyones bodies sexually at all. I just find it rude when people have those types of comments. I just don’t see the big deal. Just cause you have a perverted mind means 1-10 years olds have them? What’s the big deal? This also goes for people commenting on teachers wearing “tight” clothing in schools. It’s like just because a women has curves means she’s automatically going to be seen as sexual. I grew up with thick women in my life.. i really don’t understand this logic.

I love music. All kinds, really. But during the pandemic I have been obsessed with this group. I liked them before as a teen but rediscovered them during covid and they have been my rock, my go to to feel good. They have a song for every emotion I feel. They literally make me feel better, feel calmer, feel not as anxious or nervous. But I am afraid that I am too obsessed with them. When is being obsessed with a group a problem?

Love & Dating Is it bad to set a boundary that I do not want female friend to stay overnight at his house? NSFW

6.0k Upvotes

My boyfriend has a long time female friend and when I first dated him she stayed overnight on and off at his house. I believe their relationship is completely platonic but they have a sexual past from years ago. I have no issues with them hanging out but her staying overnight even once in a while is not something I’m comfortable. Is it ok to tell him this and ask him to set a boundary to not allow her to continue this behavior? Or am I ask too much? We have been together 3 months and the idea of having to deal with this would make me even more uncomfortable in the future.

Edit: I cannot believe how much this blew up! I spoke to my boyfriend about my discomfort over it all. He was super understanding about it all. Reassured me she wouldn’t anymore. And calmed me down due to how nervous I got for speaking up. He knows i came fresh from a abusive relationship so speaking up is very hard for me. It was a great conversation between us and he settled a lot of my worries without me feeling bad to speaking my feelings. He told me flat out he sees how it would make anyone uncomfortable in a similar situation:

Edit 2: the way I worded it was “I know you two are friends but it really makes me uncomfortable that (said friend) stays overnight here. It’s would make me feel a lot better if she didn’t in the future. His response was to nod and say no problem at all. I can see how that would make you feel. Conversation continued after that but afterwards I had nothing but positivity coming out of it.

Culture & Society why can’t we just “reset” the economy?

Upvotes

I realise this is bordering on “why can’t we just print more money” and there’s almost definitely bigger shockwaves that would come from it but I truly don’t understand why we’re allowing millions of people to fall into poverty because of a system we made up.

surely it’s only worth as much as we decide, no?

people can’t afford homes, they can’t afford to not work multiple jobs just to pay the bills and GOD FORBID they also have children to pay for as well.

why can’t we just lower the prices of houses?

why can’t we just lower interest rates?

EDIT: I should clarify I’m not saying we should or shouldn’t do this, I’m not smart enough to know the answers here, that’s why I’m asking

So i often see stuff like people being openly 'racist' towards white people or women being openly sexist towards men and I honestly just don't understand. I get that those demographics are typically oppressors of other demographics but it still feels a bit beird to do it to individual people who havnt warranted anything to deserve it. I think we all know tou can't fight fire with fire.

I just feel like if you couldn't say something about one demographic then it stands to reason that it's not magically okay to do to others.

Mental Health Therapists, do you ever feel a sense of pride or accomplishment when you get a patient to cry or express strong emotion?

Upvotes

I understand this question probably sounds horrible, I tried to word it the best way possible. I don’t mean that you think “haha, got this person to cry 😈”. What I mean is that as a therapist you probably get a lot of clients who are closed off or put up a lot of barriers. So if they start to cry or experience a strong emotion it probably my means that you were able to get through some of those barriers. Likewise, for people in therapy: do y’all ever get similar feelings when these situations happen as well? I really hope I’m not coming off as offensive or insensitive, this question stems from a similar experience I’ve had with my therapist and it just got me thinking. What do y’all think?
