2021.10.21 23:23 BeanieBreakdown Schrodinger's Rapist: AKA "Any Man Is A Potential Rapist".
I just need to vent for a moment. This is not something that I have really, personally dealt with. But most of my male friends, or even acquaintances seem to have stories about it. Or worse, it's a daily occurrence for them. I'm not sure if it's because I'm a short man, so seen as "less of a threat", or because I've always been reasonably understanding of women's fear of unknown men. But it's getting to the point of ridiculousness, and it's endangering and affecting the mental health and well-being of my friends.
In short, "Schrodinger's Rapist" is the concept that women must approach any unknown man as though he COULD rape her. Never mind the obvious social outcome of a world in which one gender is taught to fear the other by default, let alone the actual statistics on male on female violence, compared to male-on-male violence. This is a dangerous, infantile and toxicity-reinforcing way to format gender relations.
This has been bothering me for some time, but a recent occurrence has led me to finally say "enough is enough" with this bullshit. One of my best friends was recently in a long line at a coffee shop. He noticed the woman in front of him had some stickers on her phone-case, pertaining to a certain band that he liked. And bored of the long wait, he tried to politely strike up a conversation with her about their mutual interest. In his own words, his intent was not even inherently romantic/sexual. My dude was just fucking bored. Very quickly, she began reacting to his completely benign conversation with noticeable body language and facial reactions, that communicated (in his words "exaggerated") fear or distrust. He quickly assured her that she didn't have to talk to him, and he was sorry for making her uncomfortable. But several other men in the establishment had already noticed her behavior, and soon surrounded him, puffing out their chests and questioning him. He ended up having to leave the store, because his own social anxiety and PTSD kicked in. That's all it takes. And nothing that a man says to defend himself in these situations can defuse them.
I understand victims of physical, mental and verbal abuse, having trauma. I even understand women being cautious with men they don't know. But there's a difference between reasonable caution, and immediately assuming that every male you see could rape you at any moment. It's, frankly, not the slightest bit realistic, and incredibly hyperbolic. I worry what it means for the future of gender relations, as this behavior becomes more and more commonplace.
So, no, it's not "alright" for you to treat every single unknown man that passes you on the sidewalk as a potential threat. It has adverse mental affects on both yourself, and him. Furthermore, this reinforces men internalizing the thought that we are, by default, dangerous, violent and misogynistic. The problems of "toxic masculinity" cannot ever be solved, if the "solution" is to teach young boys that as they grow older, they will be perceived as "threats" by default until they "prove" otherwise. That it is our duty to reassure everyone around us that we're not "one of the baddies". And this cannot be hand-waved away by saying such nonsense as "Well, if you want it to stop, do something about cultural misogyny/the men who do rape/etc." I am ONE man. It is not my duty, nor is it even possible for me to affect change throughout my entire gender. All I, or any of us, can do, is to be good examples for other men.
No one should have the worst of all acts assumed of them, by nature of their gender. There is no excuse. And this behavior will not lead to any improvements between the genders. It cannot. I am not a potential rapist.

2021.10.21 23:23 ConkreetMonkey Should I do my first ever playthorugh with or without the Yosuke romance option mod?
I have decided to play this game for the first time, because it has been recommended to me many times and is supposed to be one of the best RPGs ever made. Since I will be purchasing it on Steam, I will be able to add mods, and one thing that I've been agonizing over for months is whether I should play it with or without the mod that allows the player to romance Yosuke by utilizing the scrapped content buried in the game's files and fleshing it out. I barely even know who this character is, because I'm going in pretty much blind and I'm completely new to the series (which I value greatly), but I'm worried that playing with a mod for my first time will somehow tarnish my experience. What would your recommendations be? Should I play it vanilla, or with the mod? And if anybody here has played with the mod before, could you please give me an idea of it's quality and how much it alters the game?

2021.10.21 23:23 Monk2793 28[M4F] Arizona/Anywhere Looking For A Real Connection, Eventually Relationship
Hi there! I assume anyone interested in my post is going to look at my profile. If you do you'll find some nsfw posts of me. I made those posts to become more comfortable with myself after an abusive relationship where it was made known I wasn't attractive to her. If the fact that I made them, or the posts bother you I apologize, but I made them for me. I was incredibly uncomfortable taking even pictures of my face, so I jumped in at the deep end and posted my most private moment publicly. It gave me the confidence to make this post now so I won't be removing them.
I want a real connection with an intelligent, fun, and caring person. I want to message all day and feel genuinely excited to see your name on my phone. Distance isn't an issue with me, if you and I connect know that I have every intention of eventually meeting up. I'm looking for my partner, not a fling. want my forever person.
I'm 5'6, kind of chubby, and Hispanic. I shave my head and face because of allodynia. I like to read, love cooking, play games, watch movies and shows. But above all that I love music. Especially Florence + The Machine so if you like that bonus points. I recently made a big life change and I'm still making things better for me. I'm autistic, so voice chats will be hard at first and sometimes I'm non verbal. If you have questions about that I'm happy to answer. I also have fibromyalgia, which means my body is in constant pain. I will have flare ups/bad days. Yes, it is permanent. I'd like to get that out there so you know about it.
I'm not really a partier, I get social anxiety. I'm not a drinker and I don't do drugs either. I know I know real fun guy haha. But I think I am, I don't take myself too seriously. That doesn't mean I'm a clown, but I can laugh at myself. I'm also a fan of goofy dorky romance. I love pet names, and one of my mottos is "you have to do at least one silly romantic thing each day for your partner" another is "you can't trust anyone that doesn't like a bit of jiggle" I probably have more but that's enough for here :)
Random facts and other things for anyone interested in them
-I'm a Virgo, I don't entirely know what that means but I don't knock anyone into astrology
-I'm an INTJ-T for anyone curious about my Myers-Briggs results
-My favorite show of all time is It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Mac's dance for his dad still breaks my heart and genuinely makes me cry haha
-I play the stand up bass and guitar, will I ever be a rockstar? Nope, I play classical music
-I'm a big fan of musicals
-Politically I am left leaning
-Prone to looking a bit like a raccoon due to insomnia, if you like raccoons that's a bonus because I love them
Also, here's some pics of me :)
I don't know, you tell me :) I don't really have a type physically. I like curvy, skinny, thick, whatever. My attraction starts with who you are not what you look like. If you're smart, can carry a conversation, and have a sense of humor we're off to a great start! Also, I really enjoy when people are passionate about something. If you feel weird about dropping knowledge bombs, or feel like you share too much about things you like. Don't! I love it haha. I also value honesty, I'm not built for lying or playing games and I appreciate when others are a that way with me.
If you made it this far I suspect you have at least some interest in me, and if you do feel free to chat or message me. When you do, please include a fruit, and your asl. A little bit about you would be nice too!

2021.10.21 23:23 Lethalkittyboss does minxodil 5% cause low libido side effects in women too?
okay so before anyone says it doesnt cause side effects of that sort in anyone, i come here with hours of scrolling through sub reddits of peoples experiences with minoxidil and most of them mention some form of ED and loss of libido, which leads me to think its very plausible, after all minoxidil does have an effect on the heart rate. so my question is, would the same side effect apply to women? any women here who have had that side effect?

2021.10.21 23:23 Pale_Pie_4386 How much down payment should I save to buy a condo/townhouse?
Thank you for reading & helping.
Ideally I’d like to buy something $600-700k. I can work with either a condo or a townhouse, although a townhouse is preferred. I live in the GTA area.
My salary on paper is around $70-80k gross (which may significantly limit the amount I can borrow). It may sound like day dreaming to buy a property that range but my own business net me $2-10k a month (I do pay taxes).
If the bank knows I have very fluctuating additional income - am I able to borrow more? In either case, how much down payment should I save to afford a property that range?

2021.10.21 23:23 sonamusic Difficulty speaking
Hi everyone! I’ve been dealing with what could potentially be mild asthma on and off for the past year (at least that’s what my doctor diagnosed me with). I’ve done all the things - chest x ray, echocardiogram, PFT, endoscopy, you name it. My biggest symptom is difficulty speaking. Like I don’t have enough breathe for my words. The shortness of breathe rarely feels bad enough to feel like a “flare”, though that has happened. I haven’t used albuterol enough to really know if it works. When this initially came on last year I was having a lot of days of difficulty breathing, it was also a horrible smoke year in California. Then came digestive issues, so it’s kind of a chicken and egg thing with this, but if I think about order of events the difficulty breathing started before the digestive issues.
Just curious if anyone else’s experience resembles mine? Particularly the difficulty speaking? And if so, which maintenance inhaler do you use? I prefer spacers bc I get benefits with less side effects!

2021.10.21 23:23 Trying_To_Contribute Now you know why us Raptors fans would discount someone’s basketball knowledge or fandom when they’d be critical of Lowry
Either they don’t really watch the game or are don’t know what winning basketball is or only see whether the ball goes in or not or some shit.
He empowers every player on the team. Miami had all the pieces to be a sports car and now you’ve got the right man on the wheel.
Let someone point to his 1 for 8 shooting and say he’s not that good and see how you react. Raptors fans can relate
