That's not weird 😳

Why isn't he cooking the rice in the Thermomix?!

This article doesn't resonate with me.

I feel 2020 is the year we are embracing the 'looks don't matter' mantra. Cellulite is shown on models, big butts are desirable, you can't comment on looks etc. 

The author has never had it better.

Aren't NDA's null and void if they're attempting to cover something illegal? I hope we get the goss.

16 year olds cannot 'consent' to having sex with mature age billionaires. The imbalance of power is one issue, aside from the breach of law.

I had a similar experience. Definitely no one asked 23 year old me if they may cut my vagina. I was in AGONY after the birth, barely able to shift myself from side to side once the epidural wore off.
3 days post birth I was still applying ice blocks down below when a nurse told me they weren't necessary(so long after the birth).
I put up with agony for 6 weeks when I saw my GP for the follow up. She took one look, pouted at the horror of what I must have gone through and proceeded to tell me she would have to squeeze the pus from the incision as it was infected.

I had no idea what an episiotomy was let alone what post birth should feel like, pain level wise. Doctors and midwives should facilitate care but also educate their patients.

I disagree with the sentiment of this article on a few levels.

Firstly, the circumstances of the crimes were very different and as someone else has stated, there have been many equally despicable and depraved crimes against women in the years that followed Anita Cobby's murder. To effectively call this murder the female 'murder of our generation' doesn't feel true. I personally felt a deeper dread following Jill Meagher's death despite previously living within walking distance of Aiia's murder.

Also, choosing to learn about the abhorrent circumstances of these deaths helps to educate me as to what society is capable of. Maybe I should be a little more wary if a guy is walking behind me at night because REALLY horrible things could happen if I ignore it. Knowing what these things are, although terrifying, gets my head out of the sand. I never in a million years would have thought I was in danger on a busy road like Sydney Road or Plenty Road or likely to encounter a serial rapist who could rape and murder me metres from the shops. As scary as that thought is, I now know better.

Sadly, the world isn't a safe place and the older I get, the more I learn that. Not telling me won't change anything other than giving me a false sense of security.

Showing my age (36) but did anyone else own a Muster? The previous Rolls Royce of hair straighteners before GHD and their ceramic devices hit the market. Ahh... the memories.

Remember a few years ago when breaking up via text was considered rude? It seems like a text would be considered thoughtful these days since ghosting has become so common.

Agreed ^^^^^

There is a large portion of this story and person's background missing from this article. Along with disturbing paedophilic fetish allegations that have been omitted.

The Year 6's at our school are being confirmed as Catholics tonight, at 12 years old. Bizarre really...

This is a HUGE cry for help from two very young kids who probably don't know where to turn. Kids don't behave like this for no reason. I hope intervention occurs ASAP.

Maybe he isn't confrontational and didn't want to tell you that he wasn't attracted to a sickly person. Maybe you reminded him of something / soneone he wasn't comfortable with. Maybe your texts arrived at the wrong time and kept snowballing until the mere beep of his phone annoyed him enough to block you. Maybe he didn't like your breath or perfume the last time you saw each other. Either way, he probably didn't want to hurt your feelings more when you were unwell and decided a clean break was the kindest thing he could do.

The street is literally dirty and needs to be hosed (or some rain). There are homeless people everywhere which you don't see on the movies. Pretty factual unfortunately...

I think it's fair to assume they didn't serve 12 meals to empty seats or the expectation would be to pay.

I've switched to application tampons in my 30's despite growing up with the 'manual insertion' for many of the reasons outlined in the article and I'm loving it! They've even invented compact applicators now, which you extend yourself prior to insertion. Americans can be prudish but they have a point.
