From experience, it's an ear-splitting bark that would disable all but the most sinister criminal.

The cop wasn't asking permission to treat her, he was asking if she was comfortable partly removing her hijab in front of a strange man - huge difference. If you think that ensuring a patient's comfort is patronising then you're not ready to be giving any kind of care.

Your therapist doesn't want to hospitalise you. It's not fun for anyone involved. They're only going to do it if you pose a specific, imminent danger to yourself or others. So you're fine saying things like "I really feel like killing myself," or "God, I wish my boss would just DIE," because it's much more productive to help you work through those feelings instead of putting you in a hospital. Please be honest with your therapist; it makes everything easier.

Laundry police! Open up, we have a warrant! 13 comments

Separating colors was more important when laundry soap/detergent was much harsher and clothes were dyed ineffectively. Now you can wash pretty much everything together in cold water and not have colors leeching. Your parents probably still separate their colors because that used to be the #1 rule of laundry, but you'll be fine if you don't.

My younger sister is Deaf and she wouldn't mind posing for these types of photos at all. She'd be happy to have something go viral that shows how common deafness is and how simple it is to accommodate.

@mostlyghostly06 Hey, thought I'd clear up a few things for you. Many countries (and states in the U.S.) have an age of consent younger than 18, meaning it's perfectly legal to have sex before 18. And you have your whole brain from birth, it's not like you grow new lobes as you age. In general, the brain reaches its full potential around age 26, but that doesn't mean that anyone younger is incapable of making mature and healthy decisions about sex.

I don't know what you're on about @ilikemoderation - from the beginning of media there have been thought-provoking pieces commenting on the social issues of the time. Probably your favourite movie is "tainted" by a social movement or two, whether you've noticed or not. Not everyone has the privilege of escaping as they have to live these realities every day, and seeing your life experience reflected in art and media is kind of the whole point.

Sure, but to know whether it's good data you have to be an academic. You can't expect a layperson with a few hours on the internet to accurately judge the methodologies of scientists with advanced degrees and thousands of hours of research. I know it's hard, but we have to trust scientists when they come to a consensus and they have in this case.

Masculinity itself isn't bad and it can be used in healthy ways to contribute to society. Criticising toxic masculinity is not about criticising men, it's about dismantling the harmful societal expectations that many men fall into without knowing.

Everyone reading this please keep in mind that you should always have a bed frame. You can get it cheap or used or whatever. You sweat when you sleep and having an elevated mattress stops mold from growing inside and underneath the mattress, which (in addition to protecting your health) extends its life and saves you money in the long run.

Academics do need to find ways to be more accessible to the general public. But there's a difference between explaining something complex in a roundabout way and saying nothing.

That sounds very cool 3 comments

This idea has been around since the 80s and sounds great at first but is actually problematic for a multitude of reasons. Sign languages utilise not only hand gestures but also body positions and facial expressions that gloves wouldn't track. Not to mention the vast differences between the many many different sign languages. The gloves can generally only translate manual spelling, which is a arduous process and only a tiny fraction of everyday conversation. Fundamentally, the concept puts the burden on Deaf people to accommodate the hearing world when it should be the other way around.

Some might not pay income taxes (fault of the government), but what about sales taxes, excise taxes, and other fees? Do you really think that immigrants don't purchase food and gasoline, or pay for electricity, water, tolls, and cellphone bills?

Hmm… it's almost as if allowing a bunch of able-bodied people to work, live, and pay taxes in the area WOULD help the homeless.

You can never forget a face 13 comments

Really interesting question! Basically, a specific region of the brain lights up when looking at human faces and we think that this area holds a "face map" that plots every face you've seen based on characteristics. Our eyes tend to linger on things we haven't seen before, so even if someone doesn't consciously recognise a face, their eye movements can indicate that they're familiar with that face. Lots of cutting edge face research is just coming out using fMRI and eye movement tracking.

The best part of being a parent is saying yes to the ridiculous requests just often enough so that the kiddos look at you in awe and wonder.

Right, well the one in the tweet isn't a parody. And I never said they weren't atheists, but that they weren't "just atheists in disguise." Because belonging to the Church of Satan is obviously distinct from straight atheism. Sorry if that was too nuanced.

The Church of Satan follows the Satanic Bible, and doesn't believe in a literal Satan but rather Satanic ideals of enlightenment and opposition to an Abrahamic God. It's not a parody, and its members aren't just atheists in disguise - it's a legit religion that's been around since the 1960s.

So "top" and "bottom" are used in LGBTQ circles to characterise not who is on top/bottom spatially, but more of a personality of active/passive, giving/receiving, or dominant/submissive. It's usually more about each person's energy rather than any physical action they may be doing. These meanings originated in gay culture and are usually confined there, though they can be applied to all kinds of sex.

There's already enough reputation and "publish or perish" bullshit in academia, we don't need the added pressure from the largely ignorant public.
