Siobhan is clearly going to be a victim, that’s why she’s so likeable.
You have to be pretty narcissistic to think the press are trying to ‘turn you into Harvey Weinstein’. Most people didn’t even know who McLaughlin was before this.
@em I respect that that’s your experience, but it’s just not what the science says.
@gina.o unfortunately we’d need to make that illegal first... it’s probably something we should do.
I feel glad that some poor child didn’t end up being used as social media content when they clearly had no interest in actually caring for a baby.
@simple simon usually if a woman has issues after going off the pill, they’re underlying issues that the pill was masking, not issues caused by the pill.
This is a fiction invented by 90s tv writers. Some people have a group of childhood friends, but the vast majority of people who don’t live in the small town where they grew up and have moved on from high school dont. Or you have a group of friends from a particular setting- work, mothers group etc- that will be close for a while but they fade over time. The idea that women have 4 friends who all know each other and talk intimately every Saturday at brunch is a fantasy.
@rush oh I think Hong Kong,, the Ukraine, and many places in the Middle East and Africa would say that the borders are far from set in stone. It’s really only Western Europe and the Americas that have stable borders. I think it’s just a bit of a foreign concept since we are an island.
I’m skeptical of any mental health professional who is happy to diagnose someone they’ve never met.
@katp there are millions of people who have no kids, I can guarantee that everyone knows someone who is childless. Thats as normal as anything gets.
Definitely time for Biden to flex the US muscles here.
@rush no, Israel as a country didn't exist before 1948. Jerusalem and the area have been fought over for centuries though, from ancient Rome to the crusades & the Ottomon empire. In the 20th century the area was part of Palestine, which was under British control.
Whoa. I’m not sure this is ‘being called on her bullshit’, like she made some comments that aged badly, this is really awful stuff. Who looks at a trans kid in an abusive relationship and decides to message them to tell them to lull themselves?! That is so insane.
At least they got some answers and closure, before what should have been her 18th birthday. .
Someone should have stepped in to help Tom Cruise a long time ago. We probably need a law that allows a mental health intervention when someone is in a cult.
@rush I don't know where people are getting these "reports", as far as I can tell its not from any reputable media outlet. Its been quite clearly stated that the victim wasn't in state care and the police haven't released any other information. It's concerning that everyone is jumping to vilify the families and spreading rumours.
@katp In the sweep of human history, anything from 0-13 children is normal. Most people don’t ask why people don’t have 13 kids, or how many infants they lost to smallpox.
@rush I don’t know if there’s much to ‘know’, it’s just a horrible tragic accident.
@guest2 No, he wasn’t in state care.
@gu3st if you wash your hands after you go to the toilet, the whole issue is resolved.
