Spacefem.com is a small community owned & run by some regular people. Not a company. We are not out to recruit you for data mining purposes, there is no venture capital exit strategy, no one is asking about profit margins or even making this a full time job. There are no ads. Posts here are not a commodity to be sold. We are just a fun group of people who like chatting about creativity, nerdy things, feminism, and sometimes pants. This site started over a decade ago and hasn't even changed colors. It is a safe, inclusive place to share opinions, rant, celebrate, cuss or just take stupid quizzes. We were around before every corporate social media site had to "connect" you and we'll be around when they're all gone.
Thank you everyone. :) Any info about egg-freezing is appreciated. Although, my wife can always donate hers too. Good luck, Sonic. :) Many prayers for you both! :)(sufiMYSTIC) *I'm back to my original profile, lovernotafighter.* by lovernotafighter in Pregnancy & Parenting Sat Aug 19 2:18 AM
Honestly I have a method but the sites always break it so I often lock myself out anyway. I used the StaplerHorse thing for a while, I should go back to that. What irritates me most though is I forget all the things like what special characters are allowed/not allowed/oh and this site has to be 8 chars but less than 12 chars or blah blah blah. And they never tell you until you're already re-setting your password.
I also make up random characters for the security question answers. I'm sure anyone could figure out my mother's maiden name but you're not going to figure out what my random generator told me to put that day. :P by rowan in Ranting Fri Aug 18 5:05 PM
Last film I watched was the 1978 animated version of The Lord of the Rings; I first watched it when it was new so rewatching it was pretty nostalgic. Just a shame it was never finished. :3houses: by Tweek in Mixed Media Mon Aug 14 3:38 PM
Engineering is one of the coolest jobs in the world, but there are so many disciplines it can be a little daunting to choose one for yourself! I wasn't happy with the existing quizzes, they were mostly way too direct (do you like bridges or wires? uh...) or way too career-spammy, and they were all way too serious. So with that in mind I took some personality traits and kinda did my best attempt at mapping them to engineering fields. It's not scientific or accurate because it really doesn't matter, engineers do so many things and move around so much there's no way to predict what path you'll end up on... so relax! This point of this test is to combine the fun of a personality quiz with the usefulness of a career test... hey look at that, fun AND useful? It's getting engineer-y already! Mon Aug 14 3:00 AM
I'm so sorry! I currently live in LA, and I wondered why a couple/few days ago I started feeling sick. And I didn't think it was because I was going from cold AC to HOT house everyday, like normal. I've been a little raspy. Eucalyptus essential oil could possibly help everyone to breathe as well.
I am not a licensed health care practitioner, but rather have deep life experience with nutrition and natural, wholistic health. That's why I mentioned. I know a lot of singers who use a, what is it called , it's a scarf with a mask, disguised as a scarf. But that might be in NYC where it's colder.
Its Ok, I didn't make it very clear which side I was on.
The worst rape culture is pedophilia. Someone showed me a video of a 18-25 year young male and admitted pedophile trying to justify pedophilia. I rarely get disgusted to the point where I physically want to do harm to someone but yeah.. The mode of thinking itself is scarey and whats worse deep down you know he is not alone.
Lol why is it everytime a business man gets caught doing something illegal, when they go through the computer they always find pictures of underage kids? Im mean its like almost a perfect record.
ugh that totes doesn't just happen during c-section. I had a friend who found out when she was having (other) surgery years later and they stitched her up since "they were in there anyway". Honestly I think I also have it but it doesn't cause problems *most* of the time (sometimes stabby pain but no one takes it seriously so idk). by rowan in Pregnancy & Parenting Wed Aug 9 5:24 PM
I'm impressed with your ability to self reflect, take non insulting criticism productively, and establish a realistic view of others outside your own threshold.
Especially when it comes to color a lot of people use their own life to determine what is or what isn't and you simply cannot understand going about it that way. You first have to acknowledge that you dont have full knowledge and be willing to listen and learn. I think you knocked that out of the park so to speak compared to most.
Actually, feminists argue that it's those very gender stereotypes as mentioned by lillerina is at the root of many MRA issues, including sentencing disparity. by Unvoiced_Apollo in Feminism Sun Aug 6 11:38 PM
I've noticed a disturbing trend of dudes reacting to female characters who get pushed and put over, by creating very violent scenarios. The stuff I have heard before. These include ripping their breasts off, grabbing them by the breasts and hurling them into rocks, cutting their heads off, dismemberment, and so on. It's treated as a joke as well. You see it all the time with critics of so called Mary Sue characters as well. It's as if they're so used to seeing female characters be crapped on in fiction that when the opposite happens, they have to create the scenario they expect in their mind and communicate it with the world in order for everything to seem right with the world. by Pikachu in Feminism Sat Aug 5 2:23 AM
Yeah the forum broke a little with a recent update, they should be fixed soon. I will check out your story! I don't know if my French is good enough anymore but you're welcome to ask physics questions. :) by rowan in New Members Tue Aug 1 2:57 PM
I haven't interviewed in a while, but when I was job-hunting, it always struck me how some of the interview formats at the time heavily favored skilled bullshitters. I get the lame straight-forward format: person looks over your resume/CV, and when they find anything that sounds interesting they ask you about it and you discuss and conversation ensues and you try to steer the conversation towards your strengths or points you want to make. This is about substance.
But then, for a while, interviewers started asking these utter bullshit beauty pageant questions: "what is your biggest strength?" "What is your biggest weakness?" "Tell me about a time when you worked successfully as a team." "Tell me about a time when you had trouble working as a team and how did you solve the problem... " Blah blah blah. The first time I got asked any of those I was caught off-guard, gave lame answers. But you bet your ass the 2nd time I had fabulous stories to go with each answer, and the stories were loosely based on reality, but heavily adapted for my audience. And there was quite a bit of acting involved. Fake recollecting, thoughtful pauses... it was exhausting. And maybe they saw through the acting, but maybe they didn't. Who knows. But it made me think "what kind of BS people are getting hired after these interviews???" And it pissed me off a bit, because I knew some of my most competent classmates were shy AF and would probably tank that interview.
Ooof. My kid is very social, needs to be around someone all the time. It's ... challenging, as you've found. It does get better as they gain their own interests. But it took a long time to get past clingy.
Not having read your post, but just the heading, my response was "wine." But after reading your post, I thought "wine." by rowan in Pregnancy & Parenting Tue Aug 1 1:57 AM
but I take them to restaurants so I know they end up hating 90% of the things they ask for. :lol:
- kid would like a sibling
- maybe people are right about end of life stuff
That's about it. I hated being pregnant, the last time I was pregnant the hormones were... really awful. Plus kid is now pretty big so another one would be weird and we gave away all our stuff. ;) by rowan in Pregnancy & Parenting Tue Aug 1 1:47 AM
