To be entrusted with such a precious confidence is wonderful.
How are they going to double vaxx 80% of regional residents in two weeks?
Do you think the disappointment would be the same if you didn't find out the wex until the baby was born? I secretly wanted a girl but didn't find out until the birth and then it was a boy. From the first second I saw him I never gave it another thought. Whereas I think I would have really grieved had I known sooner.
Male reproductive issues will rarely land them in hospital. Female almost always will. Insurance is the place where companies can and do discriminate on th basis of statistics.
@shauna020473 I know that's a typo, but lol at high rise pregnancies 😂. Good suggestion too!
@cat That is very true. Mind you, that sets an extremely high bar to jump. Not sure if I would be having many conversations if I were to stick with such a lofty expectation.
And just so ironic - video about women using their sexuality to dominate men when really the whole thing is men abusing women's sexuality to dominate women. In the video by objectification and emphasising the trickery and then in real life by assaulting her when she had very little recourse.
@cat that's very funny! I expect to understand the article because it's about a book a person in the video wrote.
@cat sorry I don't have any idea what you are meaning here. Will need more info but I warn you I have no intention of watching the video or listening to the song.
@mb1111 Was just going to suggest we become "that girl" who doesn't need tiktok and snap chat etc
You survived Mike Baird.
@mamamia-user-482898552 agreed. I think it might be momentarily, individually a good feeling to be desirable but it does nothing to advance the place of women as a whole and I'd say it contributes to quite the opposite.
"I didn’t have any real power as the naked girl dancing around in his music video. I was nothing more than the hired mannequin," Ratajkowski wrote.
@laura__palmer meh - I think they sincerely believe in what they say. Of course I think they are sincerely wrong, but hey.
@mamamia-user-482898552 you're right. Telling people to act like grown ups is a little different to telling people to grow up. Not much, but a little ;) and then there is what I actually said which is that grown ups need to make their own decisions. Which is different again.
@cat but how on earth do you know that about complete strangers? You can know that only about people you can ask.
If you've come out and said you are a more vulnerable member of society and your friend still chooses not to contribute to your protection you really don't owe this friendship anything more. This is one thing I thought actually might sway an anti-vaxxee - knowing someone who is vulnerable.
@mamamia-user-482898552 true. No umbrage taken, but much interest.
@cat yes I realise that. You might be able to find out about your friends' vaccination status but you can't know that about neighbours and work colleagues and other situations that you simply can't avoid.
@cat exactly! The media narrative around vaccinations has been a bit too successful if these are the kinds of things we are now meant to be worrying about
