Yes, a majority of feminists feel this way. Unfortunately the bigots who think women should be superior to men are very, very loud lately.

I think the key here is that you aren't tracking your calorie intake. You are tracking your dietary intake. The first week I tracked, I was eating around 3,000 calories a day. It wasn't about tracking the calories, and it shouldn't be. It's about keeping a record of what your putting in your body so that you can use that record to make informed changes over time.
If I don't track what I eat I have no idea what I'm eating.

It definitely has to be a lifestyle change. And it needs to happen slowly. But I've found for me personally that if I don't track it I can't bring myself to care enough to make a good choice. Also, I don't do as well with eating foods that met my nutritional needs if I don't track them. Weighing everyday is excessive, obsessive, and wildly inaccurate. You should also take your weight with a grain of salt. The human body can fluctuate in weight as much as 5 lbs in the course of a single day with no real indication of health. So while I weigh weekly, what I am really tracking is the trends and not so much any given single recording.
Tracking also gives you something to show your doctor. Most of us can't tell you what we are for dinner 2 days ago, let alone give a comprehensive answer to what our dietary intake looks like. But if you are tracking you can show what your tracking to a doctor or nutritionist and they can work with you within the framework of what has been normal for you.

@catfluff is right on aspartame. But as a general rule, all no/low calorie sweeteners have the above problem, and most of them have not been conclusively found to be a problem for humans (with various degrees of testing).
However, as with all things consult your doctor. While soda isn't ever good for you, it's not realistic for everyone to cut it out of their diets entirely all at once. And this goes for other things too. While no/low calorie sweeteners have the problem where they trick your brain, they still may be a better option than real sugar for those with certain health conditions.
Even the most knowledgeable person on the internet doesn't know your specific health situation and can't cover all of the exceptions to any given rule. So while the internet is a great resource for getting ideas, talking to your physician should always be the final authority.

Often the decision is different from circumstance to circumstance. For some couples one woman wants to carry the baby and the other doesn't want to. Other times it's based in health reasons. One woman may be more fit to carry a child to term, or have better health from a genetic perspective. Sometimes the decision is based off who is able to take a longer maternity leave/whose income will be less impactful on the budget to be gone some extra time. Especially if they want to breastfeed. Also, since breastfeeding is typically done by the woman who carried the child (its biologically easier that way), its important to consider if both women are equally suited to breastfeed as that may not be the case. Some women produce more or less milk than is needed, which can be problematic. Also, some women shouldn't breastfeed (or have a baby for that matter) due to certain medications. All in all there are a lot of potential reasons why a particular woman will bear a child instead of her partner.

Thank you. Also, yeah, if its 50° in February in the midwest, it's hot. If its 50° in September, actually that's pretty normal. But if its 50° in August, it's a bit chilly yeah.

Also, if you like tea, adding tea to juice can be good. (I like green tea and berry juice myself) which can help make your drink more flavorful with less sugar.
Also also, it may seem like a great idea to use artificial sweeteners. It isn't. Anything that promises you sweet but doesn't cost you calories isn't a good thing for you. If you consume no/low calorie sweeteners often (even the natural ones) you confuse your body. You are designed to know you need a certain amount if calories (energy) and believe sugar is high in calories (energy) and if you tell your body, hey, not as true as you thought, it doesn't think "don't need sugar" it thinks "need more sweet to make same energy" which means eating something like an apple your body thinks it needs more than it does.

Also, the community likes the pet pics. And no one is posting more than two in a row at most. And that's the point. The pet pics would be super annoying if someone posted 5 pictures in a row of their pets. No one is.
Also, your comics aren't even particularly good/fun. But if they're your thing I think that's cool. I just think it would be nice to see them spaced out a little.
We are trying to build a site that's kind, constructive, tolerant, and diverse. I would love to see all members be a part if that. Please consider how your posts and comments affect others.

For anyone wanting to lose weight: I recommend you start by tracking. Get an app (I use Samsung Health and I really like its layout and options, you don't need a Samsung to use it) and track your food, track your exercise. Track your water (I don't but it can be useful). And then, after you've been tracking for a couple weeks, you can adjust your life towards a more balanced one. Consult a doctor or a nutritionist if you are uncertain of where to start or what's healthy for you. Definitely consult a doctor before making any major changes or if your minor changes lead to any drastic or unwanted changes in your health.

On a more constructive note, @guyfromthatplace you should avoid posting so many comics all at once. Even people who like them will like them a lot better if they are spaced out between other posts. If have time in your schedule, try posting one every couple of hours and allow other users to post content in between. Maybe only post a couple in a day.

@sunflowers I'm glad you've been able to find support. I'm sorry you didn't find it with your relatives. Grief is hard, and sometimes a literal shoulder to cry on can be more helpful than a metaphorical one. When you could really use the later, I'll do my best. Feel free to ping me on the discord, I almost never check it but I'll get alerts if you @thekaylapup and I'll respond so long as I can.

So, I would guess that your dear Jellybean was a normal sized black cat, in a large but not unbelievably large tub. But when I saw this at first glance I saw a panther in what must be a gigantic tub.
My condolences for your loss. @celticrose @sunflowers

I really like that this story in particular has Medusa being gay because as @jiasmin pointed out, Medusa has a history of abuse with men. In fact, there is a version of the myth that had Medusa turned into a monster at her request in order to protect her from men.

It's also very possible to train rabbits. Our rabbit is trained to only restroom in his cage (we couldn't get him to use the litter box, we don't know why). He is trained not to chew on the carpet (this was the only thing he ever tried to chew that he wasn't allowed to chew). He knows his name and we are working on teaching him to come when called. He also is trained to be picked up and put down without struggling (as rabbits often struggle when picked up or set down).

... of what breeder you buy your rabbit from. Some breeders are much better about socializing their rabbits than others.
Rabbits can also be litter trained and this is recommended to do for your sanity and the cleanliness of your home. This will take some time so I recommend you obtain your rabbit when you have some vacation time available.
All that being said, I really like having a rabbit. Our rabbit is very laid back (not all rabbits are) and he's cute and soft. He doesn't smell bad (most rabbits don't as long as you keep their litterboxes/cages clean). He doesn't make many messes (those we do clean up a lot of bedding and pieces if chew toys).
Our rabbit also doesn't typically chew in things that aren't his. Some rabbits do, so you do need to train them not to if this is a problem. It's also important to make sure they do have plenty of things they can chew on as rabbits need to chew to wear down their teeth.

They are not like having a dog or cat. Rabbits are naturally herbivores so they do not hunt. Because of this rabbits don't play by tugging, pouncing, chasing, or wrestling. In fact you need to be careful not to be too rough because you can easily scare it even hurt your rabbit.
They enjoy running, but not being chased. They will jump really high, so containing them requires a much higher fence than it would take for a dog of the same size.
Many rabbits like going outside, but taking them on walks is a bit difficult. It's harder to train them to go where you want them to go, and you have to be really careful about their harness. Rabbits are fairly fragile and can break their backs from trying to run from you while wearing a harness and leash.
It's also important to socialize your rabbit well if you was want to pet them or cuddle or even hold them at all. Socializing a rabbit is difficult to do if they were not socialized when they were very young, so you need to be mindful...

So yeah. It's a choice. But it's a choice which compromises both the safety of your child and your community. It could easily be criminalized on a couple different levels.

Knowing passing on HIV is considered attempted murder in some places. Its largely being debated due to AIDS no longer being considered a terminal illness. But can you imagine if the same laws applied to airborne pathogens? You would suddenly not be able to take your sick child out of the house because knowing exposing others is attempted murder if the illness is deadly enough.
Also, not everyone died, sure. But many many people did in fact die. 15 million people died of smallpox in 1967. Its believed that around 400 million people have died of smallpox in world history. And that's just one disease. That only killed 30% of its (non infant) victims. The other 70% were left with scars, horrible memories, and dead babies. And that's just smallpox.
And you might think that the idea of exposing someone to a airborne disease being classified as murder is ridiculous, but remember that government mandated quarantines have definitely happened in attempts to prevent the spread of diseases.

Neglect is child abuse. Children have died from neglect. Neglect is not providing necessary care to the child. Not giving your child medical treatment has been viewed under heavy criticism for neglect. Typically it is only legal if you are a member of a religion which has been against the treatment in question since before a certain year. (Such as the Amish). Preventative care should be included. Vaccines save lives.
And none if this is to mention that not vaccinating your children means that the virus has more opportunities to mutate. If your child gets sick they might die, but they also might have the disease mutate in their body and then pass it on to children who had the vaccine. Those kids are now sick even though they were vaccinated. The virus will now continue to mutate and spread and it's become an epidemic. This happens with the flu all the time. Imagine if it happened with polio, or measles.
