Children of men who do it rush to forgive those "fathers" later too. One of my uncles used to beat his wife and kids until my aunt finally left him. Now that he's older and sober my cousins have embraced him and talk about what a great dad he is. They've somehow forgotten him slamming little kids up against walls and breaking my aunt's jaw. All forgiven, water under the bridge etc.

Bill Nye uses science to debunk anti-abortion arguments | The Daily Dot
cmadler comments on Jun 5, 2018:
Maybe I'm missing something, but it seems that his "scientific" argument is that miscarriages happen naturally so abortion is OK, "especially if she doesn't like the guy that got her pregnant." Is this really the current level of argument in favor of abortion being legal?
OpposingOpposum replies on Jun 5, 2018:
No. His point is that people arguing that life begins at conception are incorrect because they don't understand even the basic mechanisms of pregnancy. When your entire argument is based on a demonstrable fallacy, your argument is invalid. He is pointing that having people who are profoundly ignorant of the facts of conception and pregnancy make decisions about anything pregnancy related is profoundly stupid.

OpposingOpposum replies on Jun 5, 2018:
@fathercat. Thank you for that. People outside these situations often ignore the boiling frog nature of DV. In the common experience, abuse is introduced slowly and only let free reign once the abuser has the victim in a position where they're powerless to leave. For instance, once the abuser has separated the victim from their support system or when a child is born into the relationship.

AmelieMatisse comments on Jun 5, 2018:
It sounds as though you are a peace maker and also a conduit for open communication. That's a good thing. I'm wondering if many people would find it a cumbersome process. And just remember, there are a lot of people out there that just want to be able to have the last word.

hankster comments on Jun 5, 2018:
if you seek to be unblocked by folks, make yourself a general post to everyone asking for them to consider unblocking you and others..... otherwise lay it to rest man.
OpposingOpposum replies on Jun 5, 2018:
@TheMiddleWay because its annoying. You don't get to control other people. Your trolling and obnoxiousness have repercussions. You have to deal with that. The rest of us are not required to give trolls or people we don't like any attention or consideration.

The basic principle is show, not tell. Have detail come out through the story rather than just describe it as in an essay. It is fiction, after all.

Mooolah comments on Jun 4, 2018:
So I'm having a conversation about the new neighbors. One woman says "He doesn't look American." So being the instigator that I am, I said "What does an American look like?" "Oh you know what I mean" was her reply. =0{

Nice summary. My general rule for the actual writing:: never use exposition to describe the physical appearance of a person unless absolutely essential. And then only in context. "the shirt was way too big" Why do i need to know she is a petite blondie? Is this going to be a clue? ...

Are these people real or characters you are making up? You are doing a great gob as I cannot wait for another. Good work thanks for posting. Just a note, the Frank story made me cry, that is a good thing.

JustKip comments on Jun 4, 2018:
Oh! Constructive criticism. I like the way you introduce people, Frank too. Good character development, especially with Frank. I want to know more about their lives. Like what happens next (although I'm afraid I know how Frank's story ends)

Yeah. I am too.

Croebheir comments on Jun 4, 2018:
Sounds pretty real if you ask me. Lots of Fred (Frank) and Wilma's out there. Some get along and some don't. I often wondered how long someone can take living as Fred does, and was amazed at how much some people could just keep on living like that. Wretched existence, though still an existence. ...
OpposingOpposum replies on Jun 4, 2018:
Idk. Sleeping rough isn't that great and he's obviously got health issues but living on the beach and doing whatever he wants doesn't seem like the worst existence.

Do you "talk with your hands"? Does it bother you if others do?
MettaCompassion comments on Jun 3, 2018:
I do not use my hands to talk, however, I do not mind when others do. It is obnoxious, but to each their own.
OpposingOpposum replies on Jun 4, 2018:
@CallMeDave those sound like prissy, overly judgemental people to me. Upset about people talking with their hands? That's just looking for things to nitpick.
Men with longer legs more attractive to women, say researchers | The Independent
Kohelath comments on Jun 4, 2018:
I read this too! It could possibly be a subconscious preference, but I don't doubt that there's such a thing as a "Leg Woman"... Whilst simultaneously doubting the existence of a "Moob Woman"
OpposingOpposum replies on Jun 4, 2018:
I like teddy bears tbh and moobs tend to come with that package.
