In Topic: Sleeping with a married person

I agree with cara, rocket, Joe and the rest of you lot taking the stance here. I think that the person most culpable is the person who is in a relationship and cheats. However, a person who knowingly sleeps with (or even makes out with, blows, feels up, this isn't just limited to sex imo) a married or otherwise committed person is guilty. Sexuality has nothing to do with this conversation.

In the case of @Trapezeo I don't care if that guy is a closeted gay male stuck in a heterosexual relationship, it is reallyshitty to cheat on your spouse. The decent thing to do as that man is to tell his spouse, and she would either be okay with him experimenting or not, and then they could decide to continue a mono relationship or break up.

What is the accessory to cheating called? The cheatee? Let's go with it. Those of you thinking the cheated is absolved from consequence, how would you feel if you were in a long time, committed relationship, and your best friend decides to sleep with your SO? That would be a dick move by your best friend, right? So why would it not be a dick move of a stranger who knows you are in a committed relationship? Help me see how you justify this to yourself.

None of this matters if the spouse knows about and is okay with it, but that isn't considered cheating, it is swinging.

To my knowledge, this has all been about sexual cheating, and we haven't delved into emotional cheating. But in abusive relationships, I don't think cheating is ok still, I do however absolve the abused from emotional cheating, and almost encourage it, if it helps them take steps to getting out of the abusive relationship. But that is a tougher topic I would have to think about more.

I do this regularly, although not as often as I would like. Especially since residency started :'-(

This is pretty useful info to have. For me personally, I don't think I'd care how my body was handled as long as someone was genuinely learning from it. But I know others feel differently. It's good to know that some folks appreciate the people who donated their bodies.
Are there any other options aside from medical school for donations to medical science?

I'm sure there are. I don't know much of them, bc I guess I haven't knowingly benefited from them. But I will tell you what, I think medical students doing their own dissections on cadavers is probably the most important thing we do our first year for our training. No better way to learn the human body than to open it up and find how everything isn't connected with your own hands. Some schools are moving away from it, doing virtual dissections, and I think that those Med students are having a huge disservice done to them. I know things like the body exhibit do professional dissections for teaching of the general public and the medical professional world. Idk about others off the top of my head though. I think rather than just Med student dissection, sometimes things are done where the body is cut with an ultra sharp blade into layers so you can pull drawer type things out and see that section of a body. Pretty cool

I am always grateful for people who decide to use their last act to give to the next generation, as you would with any form of body donation. So good for you!

Okay writing in the books is seriously such an incredible idea. I am gonna do that if I ever have a kid.  What kinds of messages do you leave in books?

I haven't read that book, no, but I'll check it out.


The tree planting idea is pretty awesome. I had considered doing that as well but I will probably donate my body to science. 


After studying anatomy at my university I gave up that idea because people are seriously non sense with bodies, but you can choose what to do with your body, where to donate. I plan on donating my organs, sking, hair, bones, everything that can help somebody else



Sadly this does happen sometimes. You can choose to donate it to a medical school instead. Med students aren't perfect either, but probably more respectful than undergraduates. I do appreciate people who donate their bodies to science. Since the average med school requires 1 body for every 4 students for dissection lab, and with our school it is only those 4 students working on the body the entire year. I am definitely an organ donor but haven't given much other thought to what happens to my body after I day

Advance care planning is really important. In fact, Medicare incentivizes doctors to the tune of an extra $100 per visit (once a year) to talk with their patients about their code status (do not resuscitate/intimate) and I think that is healthy. I don't think obsessing over death is healthy, but a good relationship with it is.

I sometimes watch r/watchpeopledie but there are some that are way too morbid for me to watch. It's hard to stop watching them once you start. And it somehow gives me a much better appreciation for life (especially the life we have in the Us compared to many 3rd world countries).
Also I have a morbid/dark humor. In lots of different ways. Not just The bojack horseman kind.
I can't think of any others off the top of my head
