>>1118119 reminded me of this thought I've had, though I already know it's not an original one, but I'm going to share anyway.
What if someone created a website where you leave reviews of an ex/date, so when women find a guy they can just search him up and see what his flaws are so they know to not let him near at all.
An example:
John F. Smith, [insert state and county]
> Said vile things about women despite being with me
> Threatened to hurt me
> Does not believe in washing hands after every bathroom trip
And if the guy is someone who moves around a lot you include the location you last dated him in. Maybe have an ability to search a name through all the states/counties so the new girl he met in a different state can rummage through all the John F. Smith's to see if he got himself a spot on the shit list site. Oh! I also think there should be an option to post a photos.
There's a site that exists for sharing nudes of women that are local to men that have the site features I was talking about, so if their site is able to be up and running, why can't this one? Unless there is one and I'm just out of the loop. Could this be a good idea? Now that I think about it.. this could just end in women catching lawsuits, so maybe not… Either way I'm suicidal

Twix and Butterfingers are my ride or dies. For easter I once bought the giant Twix egg but my sweet tooth isn't what it used to be so I only got a couple bites in and then eventually left it to rot and threw it out. I'm still sad about it. Also, once in highschool I went to my local Target but I was poor and hungry so I stole a pack of Turtles to eat and I don't know if it was the guilt but I hated them. Too overwhelmingly sweet right off the bat.

When I was a kid, 3 Musketeers and Mily Way were the shit. I'm just not a big chocolate fan so if I get chocolate candies, I'm picky about the chocolate to filling ratio.

>I am a black woman married to a white man. Our 13-year-old son looks white—blond-haired, blue-eyed, straight-nosed, thin-lipped, fair-skinned white—but he identifies as black. Our daughter is much lighter than I am, and is often mistaken for Middle Eastern or Latina, but I cannot help but see traces of my paternal grandmother’s high cheekbones and wide nose in her round face.

>Some queer people talk about the existence of “gaydar”—the ability to identify one of their own, whether they are out or closeted. As the child of a white mother and a black father, I have whatever the equivalent is for being able to spot black people no matter how fair their skin or how European their features. I could always claim my people, I thought. But when our son was born, I realized that no special power was going to help me see his African heritage. My husband thought our newborn was albino the first time he cradled him in his arms. He was that white.

Southern accents are disappearing in many of the urban and suburban areas of the south. Mostly because a.) kids growing up around non-southern peers whose families moved to the south, and b.) the stigma that southern accent = dumb, so many people have tried to lose their accent.
I'm born and raised in the south (in the "Old Southern" region from that map) but people think I'm from Ohio or some shit. Used to have a twang according to old home movies, but I think years of voice lessons and being a dramafag beat it out of me. It comes out a bit when I'm drunk, and there are certain words that stick out as very southern that I can't stop saying like y'all and fixin' and "bless her heart."

I had a pronounced Texan/country accent until I moved to South Carolina at 9, then it disappeared. I don't really have any kind now, which is a shame. I sound generically midwestern, I suppose.

I’m from NorCal and typically along the coast/Bay Area and Sacramento areas you have general American accent. But when you go really north into CA like humboldt and Redding, you get more of a hick drawl. Also some parts of central Cali have the drawl.

Valley accent is very distinct and obnoxious. I never hear it in the Bay Area. But I remember girls in my HS would emulate the accent because of simple life and the whole y2K dumb blonde shit.

I have a New England accent but everyone thinks we all sound like we're from Boston. But the Boston accent is distinctly different and stronger than the whole rest of New England. I rarely meet people who have a true thick thick Boston accent anymore. Have met a few people you clearly overexaggerate theirs, though, like this one NLOG I worked with who desperately wanted to be unique, I guess? But other than that, I think other nonnies are right about regional accents dying out. Even my New England accent has softened. Can still hear it in "car" and "coffee" but I think it's definitely softened a lot with age. I don't hear it at all in my child relatives. They are stuck to their iPads watching media all day, it definitely might be what is causing the generic American accent to become the norm.

The funny exception, though, is mommy bloggers talking about how Peppa Pig is giving their American kids British accents. Is that seriously happening? Your kid would have to be fucking glued to their TV all day, every day for that to happen, that's embarrassing. It's hilarious but really sad.

Do you have examples of good cities or towns like this on the upper east coast? Not trying to muh source you, I'm actually moving soon and am sick of my situation in a city right now. There are way more brazen crazy moids in the street and my mail is always getting stolen.

yes! food prices are getting insane, especially in rural areas. it's scary, i don't know how people are surviving. a lot of my family is on food stamps and now there are conversations starting around reducing how much assistance people can get per month when it's not even very much to begin with. A family of four where I'm from gets you $750 a month in EBT. It's expensive as fuck to be poor in this country, especially if you have medical conditions because you can't earn over a certain amount either without getting your medical benefits slashed since our country's healthcare is a cruel joke. one of my family members has type 1 diabetes and the hoops we have to jump through for discounted insulin alone is disturbing. i'm trying to stay positive, but i think it will just get worse and worse.

It's been happening to any area that's a "vacation town". I was priced out of my hometown which was a small mountain town in the northwest, people should be allowed to vacation and travel but the issue lies in the fact that the people who run everything fuck up the entire economics behind it, there's fucking garages for living in bumfuck Montana for 2100$ a month ffs, and no it's not the California boogiemen, it's greedy landlords price gouging and zero market regulation. If every single landlord tomorrow decided to charge 4k and up for rent they could and there's very little landlords that would actually be stopped.

It's primarily like >>1153036 said and an issue of rich mainlanders moving there/buying permanent property that fucks up the economy for the locals. But yes, a good amount of Hawaiians dislike tourists too. Mostly because they tend to be shitty and ignore regulations while mucking up the natural environment. There are turtles and seals that have been driven away from their beaches due to masses of tourists harassing them and trying to get in their faces for pictures. People who snuck out of hotels at the height of COVID to try and avoid the quarantine regulation (obviously, HI being an island it was very at risk). Nasty hippies camping out in state parks trashing it up and squatting. That and the entire history of Queen Liliʻuokalani basically being forced at gunpoint to integrate into the U.S. has left a bitter taste for many. It also depends on what island you're on though. The Big Island tends to have more protective locals where somewhere like Oahu is thoroughly a tourist haven.

I also have a question. How do Hawaiian people think of all the Japanese people who live there compared to the white mainlanders?

You're right, the area I lived in was just a typical small town with cheap good restaurants, a cute library, maybe a bar or two, and simple thrift and grocery stores, etc but rich people took it. They brought up restaurants that have bland food for like 40$ an entrée (seriously, I use to work at one of those bougie mountain resorts, they sold literally microwaved kraft cheese on chips as nachos for 25 bucks) and then have cabins for like 7k a week, most of us are poor but richies keep buying homes and stuff and marking rent as like 3k a month when originally you could find an apartment here for 400 a month just 2 years ago, nobody who was born and raised there can afford it anymore and then adding "retreats" that's just beginner yoga at 5 AM and then getting drunk and getting in fights at night

they also keep ruining systems meant to entertain us poor like the free things here, camping, thrift shops, cheap restaurants etc. I use to be able to get dinner, play pool with friends and buy outfits from the thrift store for less than 20 bucks, now that will barely cover dinner nevermind thriftstore price gouging and ofc they fuck with all the wildlife, complain about harsh weather, pollute everything, etc and then they're just going to go fuck up the next town with beautiful nature once ours is ruined from all the pollution and then overcrowded with tourists acting like chimps, just like they did with gulf shores and gaitlinburg

Depends where at in Kansas, my in laws live outside of Topeka and I live outside of KC. Very very family oriented and the local churches practically run everything, I literally go to the local church to watch my midget wrestling. It has its quirks like weird hobbies like there's a huge exotic pet community, plenty of fun volunteering activities esp with animals since that's my field. Since it's the Midwest you get all the good chains from the north and south like waffle house, Denny's, scooters, Freddy's, etc. Free stuff to do always and booming farmers market, cheap housing if you know where to look and wages are nicely adjusted to the price of living if you're not in KC. Walmarts are fucking everywhere and oddly laid out, people are nice like 80% of the time. Farming and stuff is obviously huge here but everything is hella monitored by the cops and locals so you unfortunately can't just explore random areas at night without having 3+ cops pull up on you. Temp is bipolar, one week you'll get a snowstorm next week you're sweating your ass off as soon as you walk outside but nature is beautiful here

sadly tho the rural areas can be afflicted with druggies pretty bad. keep an eye on your catalytic converter. otherwise TN really is a beautiful state in terms of the outdoors. people here seem particularly retarded tho. im from alabama and just spent 5 yrs in Chicago for school and moved here before the gentrification because i couldnt afford Chicago anymore with the lockdowns affecting my job (jokes on me because now my rent is MORE) i gotta say, the locals here are just incredibly abnormally slow and kinda stupid. idk if there's something in the water or the fact that they drink mountain dew from the cradle to the grave or what….also, TERRIBLE DRIVERS!!!

I'm from Texas and have seen many tornadoes. Where I lived as a kid a lot of people would stand out on the porch and watch them. We were near canyons and tornadoes break when they lose flat land, so people in my neighborhood usually felt pretty safe, although everyone pops down to their or their neighbor's basement if it gets close enough. And when you're inside during a tornado you just sort of get storm, silence for a bit, then storm. The sky turning green is a good sign that one might form, as is hail in warm weather. Honestly not as exciting as storm chasers and movies make them out to be and when they are exciting it usually means you're about to get fucked up if you don't take shelter immediately. We usually get them in the fall but have gotten a couple this spring.

No. 1156868

No mocha taste. It's made by using coffee syrup in the same way you'd add chocolate syrup to make chocolate milk or strawberry syrup to make strawberry milk. It doesn't taste like coffee with milk, but it does taste like milk with hint of coffee. I think it's hard to describe, if you closed your eyes and drank it, you'd still be able to tell the difference between coffee milk and coffee w/ milk.

Asking as someone in mainland Europe that went to San francisco once. This might be a vague question but generally how are the men in your state? Do all states have a subset of indimidating men? Like what's the ratio?

I've been to poor cities in eastern europe and lived in areas with majority Turkish men where they stare holes into you as you walk past, but I have NEVER felt as unsafe around men as I did in San Francisco. One followed me into a shop, which is THE creepiest thing I've had happen to me. The looks I got were more than just creepy, they were straight up predatory. I was intensely uncomfortable with a guy trying to make eye contact with every woman on the tram, he got one and I overheard that he just got out of jail that day, like what the FUCK. I didn't want to go out after dark, even in my "safe" suburban area, and it was the first time that it was specifically because I was a woman, I felt like a walking target and an attention magnet.

What is public transportation like in your state/city nonnas? I live in NYC so as much as I scream about how disgusting and awful MTA is, pretty much the entire city is accessible via public transportation so I never worry about being able to get somewhere. I lived upstate for college in a small town and there was a single bus that ran on a loop but I was able to walk out from campus to the center of town, but if we wanted to go anywhere else we had to go with a friend who had a car. I've been to SF too and have ridden BART and the bus there, but I was only there for a day so I didn't really get to experience too much of it. I've heard Chicago is similar to NYC too, but I'm most curious about pretty much any other state since I rarely hear people speak about public transport there since everyone mainly has cars.

There was actually a time I went out to see a castle with friends (two other international students and some Japanese students) and some girls approached my friends to practice speaking english with them. They were tall, white men (Norwegian and German) and spoke English just fine but my Japanese friend said "oh she's actually American, she's fluent!" and pointed at me but they didn't want to talk with me kek.

There's no subway in my city but we have a decent bus line. The busses congregate at the capital of the state and spread outward. The only issue is some busses come every 15 minutes and some come once an hour. So the convenience varies. But at least they go basically everywhere I want. A lot of people still complain that it sucks. The only thing I hate is how they have trouble keeping their schedule, particularly during the busier times of the year. Hate when I'm waiting for the bus to work and it's 15-20 minutes late. I would do anything to get a decent train system here but only major cities in the US will ever get to have that.

Is this because Dems are losing votes due to tranny/race shit? People would be able to vote republican and still retain abortion rights with Roe v Wade, but if it gets overturned then that means abortion rights would have to be set by the state, right? So women would have to choose a pro-choice candidate (which are usually dem or progressive), essentially forcing women to vote Dem to retain freedom? Is that right or am I retarded? Either way, why is it always women who have to suffer and have the carrot dangled over our heads…

If Woe is overturned then it would fall back into being up to states what they want to do regarding abortion. So most likely if you’re in a blue state you’ll be fine.

Im seeing a lot of posts and tweets bringing up how high our maternal mortality rate is compared to other developed countries. Does anyone have any idea WHY our rate is so high? Is it the high rates of obesity and diabetes? All the c-sections performed? General lack of midwives we have? Or does it just boil down to having bad quality medical care?
I did look into it a little further and found
> 52 percent of the deaths were postpartum deaths, or deaths that happened after delivery. Nineteen percent of all maternal deaths were between one and six days postpartum, 21 percent were between one and six weeks postpartum, and 12 percent of all maternal deaths took place during the remaining portion of the year, which is also known as late maternal death.

Obesity, diabetes and shitty, expensive healthcare means a lot of women aren't getting good prenatal care. But some states just have better guidelines for what to look for when with a patient. IIRC California is the best state for maternal deaths while Texas is the worst.

It’s already tough enough getting an abortion (when I lived in a blue state I had a scare and barely any of the planned parenthoods had the service) without all this bullshit restriction. I’m hoping there becomes an underground system of getting medications/abortion pills for people who need it because if I had to have kids I’d try to abort any way possible and I know others would too so how can there not even be an option? Oh because men hate that women can choose what to do with their lives and bodies and make up hypocritical moral outrage about muh fetus heartbeat and whatever

No. 1160537

>>1160516
forgot the add: since the investigators concluded that most deaths were preventable that implies that maternal deaths across other states are likewise. Many states still don't do reviews/investigations of maternal deaths. But those other states could ask California to share their findings and guidelines/interventions, do they really need to do their own investigations? That they've failed to reduce their maternal mortality rates when another state has reversed them by 55% is an utter failure of those other state's health departments and a failure of all those hospitals who could have independently chosen to abide by California's interventions.

At the risk of sounding schizo, shit makes it sound like the U.S. is heading towards becoming a hellhole like Romania was under Ceausescu, where he made complete ban on abortion and effectively made it illegal for a woman to not be pregnant durning her fertility years. It went far enough to the point to where authorities were sent to run pregnancy test on women during work or school. One of the most drastically unfortunate events resultant of this total ban was the obvious and very predictable event of unwanted babies born from this. A large amount of them were sent to orphanages where they were neglected at crucial time of their development where they needed care and affection the most. This led to them having severe emotional issues later on in their lives.

There is one site detailing all of this but I can't seem to find it right but you'll get multiple results if you google "ceausesu abortion ban". The consequences of what happens when abortion is banned are known.

Women in the U.S. died through unwanted pregnancies and attemped abortions before Roe v. Wade. The case itself was predicated on the fact that a woman has the right to the privacy of her own body, a right that the government cannot infringe upon. We lose that, women as a whole in the Unites States will be on a freefall losing their autonomy. Remember, there was a time when women were not allowed to drive using the same reasonings that the Saudis today don't let women drive. It was only a few generations ago that women couldn't open up a bank account without a husband's approval, i.e. the ability to control our own money, an ability imperative to become independant, was left on the whims of a moid, an individual who, like that of a sociopath, does not see women beyond the use they provide for him. A free maid/vessel that will bare him sons. Your ability to say…
>"I want a divorce"
>"I want to go to college"
>"I want to get a better job"
>"I want to buy a house/own property"
>"I don't want to get married"
>etc.
… is on pathway to be rendered null and void should Roe v. Wade get overturned. This will be the Supreme Court, and by extension scrotes at large, essentially saying that your wishes don't matter and that your choices are theirs to control.

Sure, if the supreme court is successfull in overturning this it will just get left to the states to decide individually but we've seen that states laws change all the time (just a peek at the tranny threads will tell you that. hint hint, blue states are still run by scrotes). That's not even taking into account that states themselves have attempted on people do in other states. I forget which state it was, but there was one who proposed a state-bill stating that they should jail any woman who went out-of-state for an abortion. Then there was TX's abortion-snitch-hotline that thankfully go cranked called to hell not too long ago.

Apologies for the long as shit post but the fact that my ability to not want to anchor myself to a man, especially through a child that he most likely won't give a shit about anyway, is under both constant derision and attack, with handmaiden help no less, just drives up the fucking wall.

Nonas, I'm really sick of it all. I'm willing to do anything, really. I'm an unemployed NEET with no future ahead so I don't have anything to lose. Maybe I sound like an ultra-cringe-kek-2edgy4u loser, but nothing is going to change if we don't form something and attack. I feel silly typing that, but seriously. I see people on Twit talking about a revolution, but it's all "I'm ready when you are." I'm sick of the only way to cope is to consume or get some hobbies, but even that involves some consuming. How tf am I supposed to enjoy my hobby when shit is going down!!!!

It's ridiculous. Rent is so insanely high that living on your own makes it impossible to save any money so that you can buy your own house/condo, so that your payments are technically building your wealth and not somebody else's. Renting is literally throwing away money, but it's so fucked up that most people don't have the option to stop doing so.

I've made very good financial choices in life, and if not for this recent spike in house prices, I would've been able to take out a mortgage by now. But my savings and income aren't increasing at nearly the rate the housing prices are. I think right now, all I can hope for is being able to buy a house outside city limits in a few years.

I see a lot of doomer posting about how contraception will be next but I just don’t buy it. Christian right wingers are a lot more unified when it comes to being anti-choice but I think it would cause a huge rift when it comes to wanting to ban contraception. Some forms of birth control make the fertilization of an egg impossible which would not make sense with their whole “life begins at conception” platform. I could see them targeting Plan-B if anything. I know a huge amount of younger Christian (and Mormon) pro-lifers who push for certain forms of contraception being more accessible so that women won’t need abortions to begin with. I could be wrong but I hope I’m not. What do you all think?
I also have seen some talks about sodomy being a target since that ruling was directly based on roe v wade.

Roe vs Wade is an umbrella law, it protects abortions but it protects A LOT of other things pertaining to pregnancy, I think since it's related they may try something but I also kind of doubt it.

The official ruling is in June or July and it'll really just be down to the state, so I won't try to doompost much but it still is a scary thing to witness so I won't blame others for doing so.

I saw a video of a girl explaining what it's like living in a country where abortions are illegal and it's so heartbreaking. Men are evil and the fact that most women who agree with them won't realize it until it's too late is honestly so sad to see.

Single mothers are considered lucky if they even see a fraction of the child support they should be getting. She's doing far more than she should, good on her for restarting her life and seemingly having a great time of it while this scrote suffers. I'm glad the court actually took her side to an extent, this would be massive karma if men force us to give birth then actually have to take responsibility for the life they supposedly wanted so much. It's not about actual parenthood for men, it's about control and ~~~legacy~~~ and passing on their shit genes, except they want to have a bangmaid to do all the hard work of raising a kid for them so they can swoop in and claim the glory of being an awesome dad simply for having coomed into a woman.

One of my first apartments I rented last year was a room in a house for 700 a month (had 4 rooms, each room costed 700). Despite getting like 2800 from this house alone, my landlord would NOT fix any issues, there was lead in the water, slugs in the bathroom, mold, wouldn't fix the door so mosquitoes kept getting in and it's like what the fuck am I even paying you for?

I don't know how you can say the first part but then follow it up with the second. I've heard from quite a few women who were much younger than scrotes like this, very naïve and simply didn't have the perspective to stand up for themselves or the future child when they were at a vulnerable point in their lives. For all we know he was emotionally abusive, begging and pleading and berating her to have this kid until she gave in, she relents and says fine since she genuinely believed he wanted it that badly and was going to become this amazing single parent (since that's what he signed on for), then after a few years of separation she realizes fuck, I was foolish to have believed he would step up, kid is an innocent byproduct of what happened but I still don't want to be involved. Which is totally fair. Least I can do is overpay on child support (again, far more than scrotes ever do) and ensure it goes to a woman who wants it if ex-idiot ever locks down a woman again. To assume she full on had this Machiavellian plot to birth a child out of pure spite is a massive leap.

Has anyone here considered getting a gun/has a gun for personal safety? I live with other girls in an apartment in a sketchy part of the city and I’m always so paranoid about someone breaking in. Recently our downstairs neighbor had someone attempt to break-in while she and her kids were home and the intruder wasn’t dissuaded at all even when he knew there were people inside.

I am considering it because I don't feel that safe where I live and have an ongoing harassment situation with some men on my street, but I think realistically I am probably going to go for a stun gun first and decide after carrying it for a while if I feel protected enough. I'm extremely pro-guns for women because they are an equalizer, but I have a lot of reservations about whether I personally can handle owning one.

i can see they take pride in their musical, their logo reminds me of a broadway play

>alabama

really hard to read on that teeny button

>arizona

better mod font than oklahomas

>utah

i fucking hate the slanted effect without proper beveling and the "u" needs that extra serif removed. looks like a failed university logo

>alaska

now this is cute font design, love the way the mountains are etched into the A's and the playful placement of the lettering

>new york

very simple and very iconic easily recognizable

>south dakota

soft 80s version of the north font. why hot pink. why make mount rushmore and the bottom heading starkly different colors

>north dakota

edgy south dakota. the glyphs on this look nice though and the bottom slogan is a lot cleaner than the south version

>ohio

is that the logo for the office

>wyoming

trying to steal the dakotas thunder by copying their logo (unless it came first)

>idaho

ida have to ask why there's an entire map of the united states in the corner

>new mexico

would look nice on a sign but suffers from the same fate as alabamar when it comes to readability. also new mexico using such bland boring colors just doesn't fit right; even arizona has a nice little flower. considering all the native culture and beautiful nature it just feels understated

>tennesee

cheeky and cheesy as hell but nice usage of simple curves and shapes

>mississipi

cant spell it but the connection between the separate s's in the logo has always been very classy to me. once again highly recognizable

>texas

I swear the other versions of the texas logo I've seen are different than this one. this one has a great slogan but is too yee yee design wise

>florida

i expected more chaos from the state full of crazies, booooring

>georgia

instantly recognizable iconograph

>louisiana

looks like the font they use for crime shows or the infamous "you wouldn't steal a car" ads. am shocked there's no allusions to mardi gras or a choice of more playful, swooping font. very uncharacteristic of them

>south carolina

they should probably swap fonts with the sans serif for the north. i always loved the palm tree icon growing up and visiting sc for vacations, but they should modernize the font

>north carolina

as said before them and sc need to swap fonts

>west virginia

resembles the impact meme font too much. at least they're using some color…

>hawaii

it's fun and wild and totally befitting of the state



a lot of these I don't feel like reviewing the rest. they all start to look samey after awhile. alaska, michigan, missouri, rhode island and tennesee have a nice usage of iconography but most states fall flat. georgia, new york and missouri are instantly recognizable, I have a personal fondness for south carolinas logo. lots of these states would better suit swapping a sans serif out for a serif or vice versa

some of them look horrendous at different sizes. i wish the states known for native populations and art would have more vibrant colors, and there was a wider variety of color palettes in general

Where i live they wanted to expand the subway and people were against it because of crack heads. Like ok, just get the police to round them up dumb ass. wtf do they think transport police if for? White conservatives are very anti-public transport and it's quite annoying because they don't see the bigger picture beyond crackheads. I used to live in London and it's clear as day that public transport has no effect on the wealth of an area, even rich people use it because of how convenient it is and the lack of parking too. How could you not want to skip traffic? I am a firm believer in the public transport supremacy, especially with the fact that so many people are driving fucked up cars and constantly getting into accidents, they can be stricter on handing out driving licences.

Americans think any sort of homeless is crackhead. Maybe… Have affordable and reasonable housing that doesn't require credit scores, 3 previous places of residency and so on? Build more shelters so the homeless can have decent hygiene and not scare you? Make better healthcare so people don't degenerate from other diseases? Crackheads are an issue but nothing is done to stop them. One of the biggest problems I always hated about America is that in order to solve problems they just make overly complicated laws that somewhat relate to the problem but not really and are shocked when nothing gets done.

>many people are driving fucked up cars and constantly getting into accidents, they can be stricter on handing out driving licences.

This 100%. I lived in the PNW and ended up sliding off the road on several occasions during snowstorms because it was like $1000 for new tires, I spent over $100 on an oil change where they didn't even remove the previous oil or change the filter! They literally just threw new oil in it, I'm not a car person and even I knew not to do that. Car repairs are insanely through the roof for extremely low quality so it forces people to drive unsafe cars and are shocked when so many people die in car accidents. Not to mention quality is going down like crazy. Back then if I got new tires, gas, an oil change, etc it would last a good while now it seems like oil is draining like crazy, tires don't last for more than a few months and gas is lower quality than ever

Boomers driving are the worst too but everyone makes so many allowances for them despite fucking up traffic and swerving all over the road, but if you're young and do something as small as go a few miles over the speed limit people act as if you deserve a slow painful death

I mean, it's not hard to not get off at the wrong stop if you trip plan, plus with gmaps it's easier to not get lost than ever. but I hear y'all. most transit systems and general walkability are concentrated in the downtown core but that's also where the homeless and drug addicts are.

is there less homeless in the cold months? I know they like to come to California in the winter, so they're here year round. I wonder if the #s fluctuate in places with actual seasons.

my baseline is bay area transit systems, which I would say is world-average. not as good as anywhere with actual infrastructure but not so you literally need the expense and burden of a car just to live.

My teeth are terrible because I haven’t been able to afford the dentist here in a long time, so I have extensive work that needs done and it’s starting to affect my overall health. I’m considering Cancun. An all inclusive vacation plus getting my teeth fixed for the same price as a single root canal in the states.

We are so fucked as a nation. Suggesting sensible gun legislation in order to prevent the violent deaths of literal children is enough to make right-wingers foam at the mouths– which is impressive given that they exist in a perpetual state of having Tucker Carlson's dick down their throats.

I know shitlibs get (rightfully) made fun of for their cringe alliance with troons and a myriad of other issues, but god damn, at least "the left" isn't on the wrong side of this debate. Your freedom to own guns is more important than the lives of children? Do they not feel nauseated imagining these innocent children dying in such a gruesome, senseless way?

The problem is you can't just fix gun problems. Even if you make new laws, it will take over 50 years to even make a noticeable change within the state of the country. There is no quick fix and I have yet to see a sensible fix to this as well, because people do buy guns for other people, steal guns, and even buy them before the first crime. what do

The problem with implementing gun control is that America already has too many guns in circulation that it would make it futile especially for psychos who plan these mass killings in advance. In other countries with strict laws they never had this kind of culture and ease of purchase to deal with because how are we realistically going to keep track of millions of firearms that already exist whether they’re registered or not? Like New Zealand can control shit because it’s an island that never normalized casual gun use and ownership.

Anyone sick enough to make murdered children into a racial issue when the shooter was hispanic himself is just absolutely deranged. I see what liberals are doing though, the racial targeting is the only reason people cared for that shooting in that NY grocery store.

Sure. I’m not suggesting a particular solution, but it seems immoral to not try. Yes, people will always get guns, just like all illegal activity happens regardless of the law. Yes, outright banning all gun ownership is unconstitutional, regrettably (kek). However, there are surely steps we can take to make it more difficult to obtain and own a gun. Mandatory, repeated training. Extensive background checks. Mental health screenings.

I don’t have the answers and I don’t mean to sound like I do— but I’ll die on the hill of “it’s better to try than not at all” like the gun nuts. I wish they hadn’t made an entire identity out of owning guns. It’s so pervasive.

idk its tinfoil but based on the theorized motive posted over in the tinfoil thread plus my personal experience I don't think lanza was a pedo himself. I think that is why he killed his mom, either because she CSA'd him or brought a scrote into his life that did as a young boy. because she was an elementary school teacher, this fundamentally broke his sense of understanding for not only his relationship with his mother and how she treated other children vs. him but also his view towards childhood innocence.

his theorized motive + killing of his mother read to me much more like someone who was a victim of CSA or something similar as a young child, and because of that, spiraled so far down into crazy that he really did find it the most merciful thing to do to stop the suffering of those children as they grow into adults was to stop their lives all together. i don't think he felt entitled to hurting them, I think he really did somehow think he was entitled to ending their lives because it was ending their suffering from their parents and a world that didn't care.

I feel so doomer-y when it comes to gun control and mass shootings. I don’t know what can even be done at this point as far as flat out banning firearms goes. How would that work when so many people have guns and will not be willing to give them up? What about all the guns people obtain illegally? If gun control isn’t a plausible solution to mass shootings then what is? And it seems to be young moids who are chronically online perpetrating the most notable shootings in recent years.

I'm not American but I was in public lately when some weird scrote nearby was playing an American podcast or video out loud… we're so far from America that it really stood out as odd given they were very much only talking about the US and their own
politics. It was two hosts talking about how men have it hard and how every type of minority is screwing over men. Acting like men's roles are doomed and like men are being denied their God given right to a submissive wife who is a slut and a virgin and a high earner and a housewife and a low maintenance gal but a flawless, feminine, hairless, perfectly preened, 10 out of 10.

You're a king being denied your throne basically.. life is so unfair and if only you'd been born in the 50s. I can see how content like that has young guys wound up and resentful of a life they think they were owed. Hating the world because adult men aren't automatically worshipped.

They are one of the weakest groups of people, that is why. If you wanted to be angry with life and wanted to do the most damage you would go after children who can't defend themselves against a gun. We don't know the reason but we do know continuously some mass killers go after weak groups, In Japan, there was a mass stabbing of a disabled group in a treatment home because of easy targets. I don't see how this is any different, children are easy targets because they are a group people often want to protect.

Why is American tourism/vacationing so expensive? Seriously you can easily go to most foreign countries where it would cost like 200 in total for room, food, activities, etc. The most expensive part would be the plane ticket but American motels price gouge so badly that staying at a crack motel for a couple of days would be the same price as a plane ticket to a foreign country. Not to mention a lot of places even shit tier spots are overly crowded, low quality food, and a lot of sameism.

or the fact that the fucking nazis and hitler admitted to being inspired by the tactics the US government has used in the past when it came to how they approached their attempted genocide in Germany. must be nice sitting in your white suburban american bubbles where your rights being infringed upon is just a thing of the past right? this is why the phrase white feminism exists lol just because it isn't happening to you doesn't mean the comparison between the US and the Nazis who admitted to being inspired by American tactics is any less accurate

The US is just expensive to visit (and to live in), period. The residential and commercial rents are so expensive that your business can't survive being at an affordable price. You'll never make back enough to pay for the rent or pay for the labor. The rentier class is draining as much wealth out of everyone else as possible and in terms of tourism many places are choosing to cater to the wealthy (both domestic and foreign) while everyone else gets fucked. You also need to drive everywhere and loitering laws mean there aren't many good public places where you are allowed to just hang out either.

I know some restaurants were losing money so they had to skimp on stuff or change to cheaper suppliers, maybe all that adds up. I rarely eat or order out but when I did it was a difference in quality from what I’d had previously, even the same dish. And of course it cost more too. Tbh I eat maximum two meals a day now because of how much groceries have risen and I’m trying to save money while inflation fucks me and my entry level job salary.

Sometimes I feel like there is no point trying to work for reform/equality in this country with our current institutions. The constitution and the laws that came with it were originally founded for the benefit of rich white men. With how easy it seems for SCOTUS to deconstruct more than half a century's work of feminist struggle with the overturning of Roe v. Wade, it shows how fragile the rights of women and minorities in this country are. It is also nearly impossible to amend the constitution, especially with this extremely partisan legislature, and right-wingers somehow trampling over the rights and safety of the rest of the country. It's insane to think there are more democrats/left-leaning Americans in spite of this. I genuinely think that the only way to secure the rights of women and POC is by starting over completely, from the ground up. 400 years of American history has shown that compromise clearly does not work.

This is retarded because restaurants are going down in quality. I had a handful of my favorite local restaurants that use to be bomb but went down in quality within the last few months.

SF’s DA got recalled. There’s an accusation that he was being too soft on crime and not persecuting a lot of repeat offenders of violent crimes. There’s also a lot of controversy around him because he did not act on anti-Asian hate crimes because he seems to have much more empathy for those who break crimes rather than the victims of said criminals. I’ve noticed that a lot of larger cities are having similar problems with DA’s who are going ‘soft’ on crime such as LA, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, NYC etc where a lot of repeat offenders are just getting a slap on the wrist even for more violent crimes like armed robberies and assault.

I think most people prefer to be way harder on repeated violent crimes which I agree with too but my stance kinda changed having an older brother whose sort of a repeat offender. He is literally (diagnosed) schizophrenic and batshit insane that's gone to jail multiple times for beating up our parents and arson even. He definitely doesn't belong in jail but a psychiatric facility. He won't even talk to us anymore cause he thinks we aren't "real" just imposters of his former family trying to torture him.

Any other burgers here fed up with our work culture? I feel like every company I’ve worked for expected me to work OT for free, do the job of several employees, stay later/come earlier and look busy even when there is nothing to do, etc. I’m so frustrated. I had a “good” higher up position and quit because it was simply a ridiculous amount of work for the money. I accepted a lower paying job a few years back thinking the work wouldn’t take up my whole life, but I still found the same work culture. It was “frowned upon” to take lunch breaks and not stay an hour after close, even when we didn’t have anything to do (boring office job). Even not attending their stupid after hours “work parties” was an argument. Any time I bring this up to people they sorta subtly imply that I’m just lazy, even though I’ve worked steadily since I was like 14. I’m just tired and burnt out. It feels like every job (even shit paying ones) expect you to live for them and have zero life outside work. Anyone relate?

One of the biggest thing I noticed about American job culture is that employers have a weird boner for firing people.

Yup. I live in an at will state, which means they can fire you with zero notice for any reason.

I really want to drive this home. All slippery slopes and whataboutisms aside, you all need to vote and vote blue, at least for the next two years. Republicans’ core tenet is small government. First and foremost. Most don’t even believe the government should be able to tell you to wear a seatbelt, and now legislature is passed that says women MUST carry children to term and that it’s punishable by law if they don’t? That’s a government that’s severely overstepped its reach. The vast majority of the right are not religious extremists or even Christians for that matter. Education, high salaries, and religion don’t coincide.

Fellow Texan and I feel similarly. My mom and sister have had disastrous consequences post-pregnancy to their health so even though im not sure if I want a family in the future, I know that bio kids would not be a smart option for me since any pregnancy would almost certainly be high risk for me. Your husband's response is infuriating though. He has no right to be so blase about pregnancy. Is he against the idea of you aborting? Saying not to worry as in "we can handle a pregnancy" or as in "we'll be able to travel out of state for an abortion if need be"? If the answer is the former, I know it's much easier said than done but I would seriously reconsider your relationship with him.

Here are some resources in case you need them. Please don't give up hope. If you need to travel out of state, tell as few people as possible. Not even your husband unless he's 100% onboard. Say you're visiting a relative or going camping, whatever. Don't tell anyone exactly what state you're going to and don't leave any written evidence of your actual plans anywhere.

Okay let’s start by looking at your cycle and identifying how at risk you are based on where you were in your cycle when the BC failed and where you’re next cycle starts.
We’re looking to identify a couple of things what your normal cycle looks like (how many days? Is it regular or irregular?), when your last period ended, when the BC failure happened, when your ovulation occurs this cycle, and when your next period is supposed to happen. So lets start there and then we can identify what next steps you can take to help.
Normally with your cycle the first day of menstruation is referred to as day one. I’m going to call it D1 from here okay?
In non fertile conditions (meaning before ovulation and your fertile period later in the cycle) your cervix is closed and the body chemistry is not overly welcoming to sperm. Sperm can only live about 3 to 7 hours. During your fertile period and ovulation though the cervix is open allowing sperm to enter and the changing chemistry can let them live for 3-5 days a lot longer than non fertile periods. This is important information for figuring out how worried you need to be.
A women’s egg each cycle is only viable for 24 hours. The actual day of ovulation. That means the most dangerous period to have sex is right before ovulation when your becoming fertile and the sperm can survive and when the egg will be in the same place shortly after or during ovulation when the sperm can reach the egg in time.
Menstruation typically occurs 14 days after ovulation in a normal cycle. These 14 days are called your “luteal phase” and is pretty consistent in women, the part of the cycle that typically varies is the follicular phase which is the phase between menstruation and ovulation.
Keep in mind different things can impact your normal cycle, like stress and if you ovulate later you may menstruate later.
There’s pregnancy tests that can detect pregnancy now just 10 days after ovulation, make sure you wear your mask and probably a hat, don’t use your membership card, pay in cash not directly from an atm. Walmart Equate brand with the white tips does to part 20 and are cheaper than first response. Different brands may test for different hormone amounts so try to pick on on that 20 part hormone amount for the earliest reading. What that means though is pregnancy test can now predict if it’s the right one your potential pregnancy 4 days before your period is expected. 4 days you have extra to help speed it along and bring on the normal period, valuable time.
The other thing you can use is your Basal Body Temp if you know your standard.
So let’s start when was your last two periods? When is your next one most likely due? Are you already past ovulation or before it, was the unprotected sex likely in danger window? If you don’t want to post that information, you don’t have to or if you have questions let me know. All I need to know for next steps is have you ovulated yet likely? How many days are you likely out from your next period or where are you in the phases?

No. 1247801

>>1247791
To identify ovulation pull out your calendar (do not long any of this in a period app) Take D1 the date of your last period and count the shortest cycle of days you’ve had in the last twelve. Then count back 14 that is the earliest you would probably ovulate. Any sex up to five days before that date puts you in a risk window, if this helps. I know it sounds complicated. Now do the same for your average cycle length (the one that happens the most often) that the date you most likely ovulated, which makes it the most high risk day of the period. We can also figure out when the fertile window ended if that applies here, but it sounds like it was pretty close to your last cycle.

No. 1247833

>>1247801
From here we’re looking mostly at two things if you haven’t ovulated there’s herbs and seeds that do things like thickening the uterus to make it harder for the egg to implant. No implantation, no pregnancy. If you’re already passed ovulation and get closer to your period we can start things that encourage uterine cramps and then based on the tests and if you’re late there’s more aggressive things we can try. At no point should you hurt self anon. You don’t deserve that. I was here too when the decision happened. We will get through this.
>>1247775

Thank you for such a detailed response. So from what you've said here, it sounds like the chance of me having gotten pregnant from that is really slim? Besides that, we were also both on drugs and although the condom definitely broke, my husband wasn't able to finish due to the effect of the drugs… it still freaked me out because I know sperm can leak out of a guy without a full orgasm but now it sounds like my odds of being pregnant are almost zero? My fertile period is over a week before we had sex, and I'm still about a week out from my next ovulation window I think. Would really love to learn more about herbs and supplements just in case I end up late. Thanks for talking me down I don't think I'm going to kill myself anymore even if I manage to get pregnant, there's always some way out and if I can find illegal drugs and get into this whole mess then surely I can find a way to get an abortion even if my fucked up state wants to prevent it.

No. 1247953

>>1247881
You’re welcome, these thing used to give me a lot of anxiety after getting the means girl equivalent of sex ed in school, so learning as much as I can and ways to help was very settling.
It definitely sounds very slim, you would have had to have an irregular cycle or the sperm would have had to survive for an impossible amount of time. You can get pregnant from precum, but let’s talk about that so we can address two things, there is a lot less precum and while there is less the sperm in it, the ovum only has to accept one, so it’s best not to risk it if you can help it. But most women don’t actually get pregnant from precum they get pregnant from their male partners previously finishing and sperm ending up still down there and then in. Think women who use the pull out method and have multiple intercourse sessions a day.
The most common herbs to interfere with ovulation are Queen’s Alice Lace and Cotton Bark. Queen’s Anne lace can work with in five days of ovulation and makes the uterus “slippery” by changing your hormones, if you end up in a situation with no access to plan B it’s a potential option, but Plan B is more effective because Plan B is a dose of hormones that delay ovulation from occurring causing the sperm to die before the egg is released due to timing. It is 91% effective and the few studies on Queen’s Anne Lace is only about 71% and you will need to take it through the fertile window. Some other things to keep in mind some people have a reaction so take a little bit as a test and wait and see if you have any sort allergic reaction just like anything else knew, and it might be harder on the kidneys so just like taking anything including Advil avoid it if you have kidney damage. You can chew one teaspoon of dried or fresh seeds a day, this is the one that has been documented the most but it is also the one most likely to see a reaction, (like vaginal dryness or irritation), otherwise three to six fresh flower heads can be brewed into a cup tea 8oz of water (steep for 15-30 minutes, no more than hour). You can also ground the seeds into a paste and make a tea very similar to the flower one if you prefer.
The other one is Cotton Bark, this one is harder to find and most common in tincture form so look for that. Cotton Root bark has two main effects its anti-progesterone and anti-corpus lutem both of those are necessary for a pregnancy to occur. It interrupts your body’s ability to properly implant and causes menstruation, on top of that it has been noted that it seems to increase the receptor sites for oxytocin helping encourage uterine contractions. Make sure with this one the cotton wood bark tincture is from a good area if you can, the ones from Memphis are contaminated because of the pollution for example and are likely to make you sick if taken consistently.
Evening Primrose oil also helps thicken the outer uterus wall and promote contractions and is considered safer than Cotton Wood Bark, it might also be easier to find.
The next things we get into is encouraging the natural cycle along as you get closer to your period. Things that put your body under stress tell it to menstruate because now isn’t the time for a child, were going to combine that with things that help stimulate the uterus to encourage it to remember you’re supposed to bleed and push it in the right direction. We don’t want to hurt you and are goal isn’t to place you under so much stress your period is delayed because your body can’t support menstruation. There’s a spot for you and your body to find.
A couple things that help encourage your body to start menstruation are things like raising your Basal Body Temperature twice a day, this requires a shower or bath of 102 or more. Think right at hot tub level for 5-15 minutes. This is enough to spike your internal body temperature 1 to 2 degrees temporarily, doing this twice a day increases your chances of menstruation. I like to take a hot shower in the morning and a hot bath at night. Keep it nice and simple.
Next is exercise. Increasing exercise promotes the start of your period and the natural end of an early pregnancy. This doesn’t need to be excessive, if you’re a cardio person for example and run every morning the two to three days before your period and during your normal start time add an extra half mile or a mile to your run should be enough to get the effect, Personally I like weight lighting focusing on lower body, weighted goblet squats, padded weighted hip thrust, full body exercises that help engage my thighs and core, you don’t need a lot of weight, just adding an extra set just like with the run the progressive overload combined with the other habits were discussing should encourage it. I normally go from rotating arms and legs different days to doing both instead, with breaks when I know I need them for a day. Stretching can also help by improving blood flow and increasing uterine contractions.
Once implantation occurs our step is to get the placenta to attach so that’s where our herbal focus will be, helping encourage that. We’re going to do that with a variety of things one the herbs like Queen’s Anne Lace, Cotton Root Bark, Vitamin C, and Rue interfere with the production of pros like we discussed earlier and we’re going to start combining that with stronger uterine contractions to help dislodge it. Before your missed period I start slow, normally a week prior with things like Chamomile. Small amounts of chamomile soothes cramps, but in large doses helps promote hormone production that boost uterine cramps. Think three cups a day or two large 500 ml cups a day. You can also use red raspberry leaf with two cups of a day if you prefer or combine them. They’re fairly low risk amount the herbs, but if you see a negative reactions stop taking them, so cramping like your period though is what we are looking for. This takes a while and will probably take 3-5 days which is why it’s best to start before your missed period ever begins. Cinnamon also promotes blood flow and is a stimulating spice that causes uterine contractions. It may make other things more effective because of the stimulating effect, (ginger can be used to boost this as well). You will most likely need to make a concentrated tea or buy cinnamon capsules to get a concentrated amount at once. Yarrow is another one I like to start in this phase early. It helps stimulate the uterus and helps prevent bleeding to heavily in the case of it beginning a miscarriage or herbal abortion. Just one capsule a day in 300 mg or so should be enough. I’ve done fine without it, but I had less uncomfortable cramping with it I think. It’s an herb that’s common for women to take to help with painful periods. Mugwort is a little heavier and in large amounts can be poisonous, but drinking it in a couple cups a day isn’t in excessive. You would also know if you were on the way to having too much think dizziness, light headed ness, nauseous, etc, and could stop. Go slow listen to your body before consuming anymore between cups. One tablespoon of dried herb to one cup of tea for mugwort, chamomile, or red raspberry if you aren’t using bags to make the tea, you can also combine them into one large cup of tea, so you only need two a day if you wish to use it.
Now when we get to when the period is supposed to begin and we have a positive test (we want a positive test because there is no reason to bump to harsher things without it, as they come with a greater risk) in this theory cycle were looking at stronger uterine contractions that may fall under the category of that word TEXAS hates and wishes to ban in science terms. Such as Dong Quai, Penny Royal, Black Cohosh. (I personally would never recommend Tansy, it prevents the uterus from growing and is considered effective, but is likely going to cause you to bleed out if you consume to much and it’s a fine line)
With Dong Quai to get soothing and to stop cramps you would make a tea, so in this case we want it to be stimulating which is from the oils so we want a tincture or capsule. Something you could follow as a protocol with this one for example is the gentler herbs from before and maybe vitamin C then switch to Dong Quai. Dong Quai is not the herb you should use if you have difficulty clotting however or if you have a heavy flow as it might increase bleeding. If you do use this one always discontinue use one bleeding begins to be safe. Just as the before if you experience a headache, dizziness, etc stop, and change your plan. Dong Quai is also not good if you have diabetes as it can increase blood sugar issues.
Our next harder herb is going to be PennyRoyal, PennyRoyal is one you see come up and scare people a lot. This is because a lot of women can’t find pennyroyal flowers, what they can find is penny royal oil. You should never put Pennyroyal in or on your body, one bottle of pennyroyal oil is more than 10,000 cups of pennyroyal tea. Pennyroyal tea is thought to be the most effective form to take it. Hot and in a tea. The tea itself unless you have liver damage or kidney damage is fairly harmless correct use. During the American colonial times they used to mix it with one tablespoon of brewer’s yeast to induce abortion.
>reputed as a safe and effective abortifacient
By the King’s America Dispensatory in the late 1800’s. Normally I would combine it with mugwort and drink two cups a day for no more than five days. Once bleeding is under way discontinue if it is before the five. The brewer’s yeast does make the pennyroyal more effective. (Funny how they figured that out isn’t it?) the biggest side effect of Pennyroyal is feeling nauseous so if you do it’s best to stop and take a break.
Next we have Black cohosh. Black Cohosh by itself isn’t likely to cause an abortion, the amount you need is to high, that’s a common theme, the reason we combine the life style like the hot temps and exercise with gentle herbs before hand is because all together it increases our chances with the smallest amount of risk to the you and your body. Black Cohosh isn’t hard to find as more women have started to taking for menopause. It helps interfere with the production of the luteinizing hormones. The reason I’m also bringing this up is Black Cohosh used to early is instead going to throw your cycle off by potentially delaying ovulation, but not effective enough for it to be used before now for that.
Black Cohosh should also never be combined with SSRI’s or hormonal birth control because of it’s effect on hormones.
It helps promote the preparing and dilation of the cervix. It’s most effective when combined with an herb that causes uterine contractions like Blue Cohosh. Blue cohosh has two effects here that help the black cohosh. It helps promote oxytocic effect which causes the uterus to contract and it contains a substance unique to just it called Cailosaponin which causes the uterus to contract as well. Just with all the others go slow and listen to your body for adverse reactions like the headaches and so on. Blue and Black Cohosh get mixed feedback and that because it is difficult find good blue cohosh as it’s water soluble. You would need an alcohol based tincture. Blue cohosh just like black cohosh is best left until menstruation should have already started. I would not combine Dong Quai and Black Cohosh and Blue Cohosh together. I think it increases the risk of bleeding heavy too much. Blue cohosh should also not be used if you have kidney damage, a heart condition, or low blood pressure as it may temporarily lower your blood pressure itself.
More info you should never bleed more than one pad an hour if you do you are bleeding to heavily and require medical attention.
If for some reason you are ever in a situation you take the actual abortion pill (Mis) it is not testable as long as it is oral. Do not tell them you took it, tell them you think you are miscarrying and act distressed. Something is wrong. If the cops are called say nothing. Invoke your right to lawyer and the fifth amendment, Say I’m invoking my rights be very clear and then refuse to say anything else.
You should not attempt an herbal abortion after week 7, you would need most likely not have a full one and need a DNC.
If the bleeding starts and you develop a fever, you should seek medical attention this applies to anyone going through a miscarriage or abortion.
If you use a menstrual cup and you are at week 6 or 7 you should be able to see the vein that connects the placenta come out first, it looks like a tree. (It’s nicknamed the tree of life for that reason)
Among the harder herbs my personal preference for inducing bleeding is pennyroyal and mugwort made into a tea couple times a day, with one capsule of dong Quai in the morning.
Keep in mind I am not your medical professional or doctor so please always use good judgement and work at your pace and listen to your body’s responses.
I’m glad you’re calming down. I know these things can make me very anxious too, so I’m happy to help.
I’d look into women on waves, as well as viewing your closest options in clinics outside of Texas, and abortion funds that can help you get to them if necessary just so you have a plan.

>>1247953
Here’s some additional things too.
>Fenugreek
Stimulates uterine contractions in early pregnancy, but increases the risk of bleeding too heavily if your dose is too high. Use with caution.

>Goji Berry

Large amounts of goji berry (10 grams a day) can cause uterine contractions and bleeding leading to a miscarriage. This is within the safe daily intake for fresh or dried Goji, but if you suffer a rash or stomach trouble stop.
Do not use if you are on diabetes or blood pressure drugs

>Papaya

Specifically raw papaya contains a white fluid high in prostaglandin and oxytocin which boost labor like contractions of the uterus. Along with papain enzyme that interrupts the production of progesterone which can cause the body to abort as it interrupts the natural process.

>Parsley

Parsley can be eaten or consumed in tea form, it is high in vitamin c, the oils in it also help thin the uterine walls and soften the cervix.

>Peppermint

Causes uterine contractions when consumed in high enough amounts.

>Pineapple

Greenier pineapples are high in bromelain more than the yellow ones. The enzyme is responsible for breaking down protein. Fetus early on are mostly protein. Drinking enough pineapple juice can also potentially cause softening of the cervix and encourage bleeding promoting the abortion of the fetus.

>Yarrow

Stimulates the uterus, can help prevent heavy bleeding during.

You do realize that those abortion clinics in other states are going to be overburdened with a huge increase in demand. It's gonna be hard to fit in all the women who need abortions. You may not be able to get an appointment in a reasonable amount of time in the legal state nearest you. Which will make the appointments difficult to schedule, which will make it difficult to call out of work. Not to mention women in states like Louisiana that are surrounded by anti abortion states and would need to travel several states over to get access. Factoring in gas prices right now if you drive there, hotel costs, recovery time…it's absolutely an undue burden and not an easy task even if the women is doing well financially.
>if you have time to sit on lolcow all day that means you have money to drive a few hours to get an abortion and drive back

Party about what? In all honestly 4th of July in my family has never been about celebrating America and it's just a reason to get with family and have fun, but I don't even want to do that this year.

Well ok then. For me personally, having a bunch of good food around and a day off was always enough reason to party

Yeah it's never really been about patriotism for me. Just an excuse to chill by the pool, eat hot dogs, and watch fireworks with friends and family

I’m gonna be by myself this year, Im thinking about driving to see some fireworks in a nearby town but there’s a decent chance I’ll chicken out because Im in a new area and don’t really feel comfy yet, especially going to a social thing all on my own. But who knows, maybe I’ll be ballsy.

I'm super excited for fireworks! They're illegal in my city but if I drive an hour out or so there's still stands like picrel, not sure where I'm going to blow them up yet but I'll bring friends and alcohol and bbq

Going to light off fireworks, I like the tanks, really long sparklers, roman candles, ladybug things, and mortars . Also going to grill, play some cornhole, swim, have a fire, and spend time with my family. I haven't seen them in a while.

I’m nit doing much because the weather has been really gross (high humidity + thunderstorms), but on Monday it should be better. I’ll probably go hiking or some other outdoor thing

Why are so many people rich city people moving to small towns? I can’t handle it, I’m living in a shit hole house because there’s literally no where me and my boyfriend can afford in my own hometown. I was born and raised here, it’s so small I don’t even wanna say the population size on here. When I was young, houses and lots of land you could buy for like 150k, now the average house can be up to 500k to a huge portion going over 1 million! None of these fuckers contribute shit to the community because they work online, go to local charity events, commute, or straight up keep it empty to move into “when they are ready to retire”. Our schools are literally shutting down multiple days a year because of low funds and no staff to even keep it open everyday. So many young people that were born here are now living in cars, because all these rich people want to open airBnBs, love how “pretty it is!!!!”, or want a vacation home they leave vacant for years.
Sorry this turned into a full vent, but I’m stressed. The place I even got was out of luck of knowing someone. It’s literally a safety hazard to live here because they won’t fix shit.

Because COVID hit and they got bored in the cities trapped in small boxes and realized they wanted to be put in the open and that the country is much cheaper for “more” by pandemic standards. It’s fucked the economy up and now the cities are becoming too expensive because business drove inflation up to compensate for cost lost driving more of the city rats out as far as I can tell.

Just lower the property value yourself anon I have neighbors that purposely buy guns to fire off in the ground a couple of times a week to make people not wanna live there kek

I would think the increase property value would better fund the schools. do you not have property taxes? what a nightmare

I donated to an abortion fund in my state and they sent me a "Keep abortion legal" shirt with a nice design. I really want to wear it in public but I live in a very purple city and I'm scared of what kind of confrontation would arise from it. Ugh.
I think I'll try and be brave and wear it while running errands this weekend or something.

This. I was kicked from my small hometown because of the rich people's nonsense. They don't even buy bougie homes? They buy small homes meant for single families, surely if they had that money they'd buy the massive houses on the outskirts instead of taking houses away from middle class families? Anyway I was homeless and live in a midwestern suburb now and am terrified the rich are going to eat it up too. Middle class and poor folk can't have anything

Black cohosh and castor oil was the only thing that helped me after trying everything like fenugreek, parsley, etc. Anons should look into the German labor cocktail for early pregnancy if they want to miscarry

>you all need to vote and vote blue, at least for the next two years.
Eat my entire fucking ass. Dems are why the cities are so dangerous, Dems are why trannies rape girls in bathrooms, Dems are why illegal migrants murder women and hide in sanctuary cities.

It would also be nice if the party and their hardcore base weren't treating dead women and abused girls like a good advertising moment for them and reveling in it
