I've had so many intrusive questions about pregnancy from work colleagues over the past 16 years. Groups of older women are the worst offenders. It's awful the way women who aren't mothers are treated as 'other.'

What happened to these women is appalling and should never have happened. The fact that there has been no apology speaks volumes. I will never fly with this airline.

I've never heard of her, but unfortunately it does sound like she lives in a fantasy world.

We need to look after our regional communities. I hope they get more vaccines ASAP.

Shocking, and just not good enough. A person needs to be able to access their own house! There definitely needs to be more community awareness about disability.

It's a brave choice to try something new.

Missy was always so talented. I remember all the media scrutiny about her sexuality, it's a shame that she had to go through this experience. It's hard enough to be young and in the spotlight and really it's a bit predatory to try and pressure someone that young to come out publicly.

Oh my gosh, I love Leigh's comment about the bond between toddlers and bus drivers and fireman! So beautiful.

His behaviour is not ok. There is nothing ok about any of this. You did not do anything wrong.

That magistrate sounds too burned out to do the job anymore. It's really not acceptable for the legal system to blatantly re-traumatize women

I think people put far too much pressure on themselves about a wedding. I really struggle to relate to this article, I just don't understand the mindset.

What a beautiful and unspeakably harrowing story. I am so glad I read this today.

The baggy jeans thing is weird, it just seems universally unflattering.

It's so embarrassing that she publicly displays her lack of self awareness and lack of emotional intelligence. I think most people watching that video would be pretty disgusted.

We need to support our Veterans. So many Veterans have sacrificed so much for this country and should be immensely proud of their service.

Of course Australia cannot condone war crimes, however the reporting needs to be balanced. The results of the inquiry do not reflect the Veteran community as a whole.

We did so many liturgical dances at my primary school, many of them

I've had a number of people make really nasty comments about the fact that I am child free. It's never a topic that I voluntarily raise with anyone, because I get tired of the sanctimonious and (occasionally) outright cruel statements. It was a particularly bad at one female dominated workplace where I was the sole woman without children. People projected all sorts of things onto me, even though I never once voluntarily raised the topic of parenthood. Some of my colleagues thought it was ok to ask some really intrusive and judgemental questions in a lunch room full of people.  There was a pile-on effect of people telling me being child free is selfish and that a life without children lacks meaning and purpose. A group of women were trying to shut me down anytime I tried to talk about virtually any topic, usually using snide remarks about how I was 'immature' because I am not a mother, and that I couldn't possibly understand how tired they were and how hard their lives were. Small talk became a nightmare for me because there didn't seem to be any neutral topic where my opinion would be respected. I didn't realise how disrespectful this workplace had become until I left there and worked in a more professional setting.

I love the bathroom! Such a great location to live central to everything.

Hang in there! I hope the rest of your quarantine goes smoothly. Thanks for doing your part.

I love her attitude.
