#1993516 9 Months and counting! Baby in the making!

For boys, remember to tuck their dick facing down into the diaper. Always keep it covered when changing to avoid being peed on.

For girls, always wipe front to back to avoid infections.

Newborns tend to have huge genitals. This comes from hormones leftover from the mother, and will pass. Some girls even get a "period."

There's a bunch of little things no one talks about. Never be afraid to ask.

#1987989 Public breastfeeding shaming

Posted by MozzarellaSticks on 24 July 2016 - 02:15 PM

I think anyone against it should hold a screaming and hungry baby for 30 minutes. They can try and reason with the baby that their mom needs to find a spot first.

#1986646 Fatphobia/Thin Privilege

Posted by MozzarellaSticks on 14 July 2016 - 11:52 AM

Anything which causes malasbortion, there are many. Some people just have high 'metabolic rates.' Other times some conditions cause people to lose weight instead of gain weight. Feel free to google them.

The fashion industry is literally built on thin people. Up until VERY recently all new fashion models were stick thin.

I'm not even gonna bother going further on this.

I'm genuinely curious. Name the actual conditions. There are tons, so it should be easy, right? The whole idea of making someone else research it themselves kind of makes it seem as if you never have researched it yourself. I can't find a common medical condition that would cause someone to be severely underweight with treatment. Size is very much still within the average person's control. A medical condition would relate more to able bodied privilege than thin privilege.

If we're talking about fashion shows, you have to realize that's art. The designer cares more about the look than the buyer. They're artists. Model shapes come and go in fads, just like any form of art. Most of what goes into runways during fashion week isn't meant to be worn by anyone, it's a statement piece. You really can't compare them to everyday dress. If you're talking about advertising, nobody looks like the models in advertising, not even thin people. I'm very against unrealistic expectations, but I don't equate it with thin privilege. It's an issue that affects everyone, and dividing it between fat and thin negates the bigger issue itself.

Maybe it makes more sense to you now. I don't believe thin privilege exists because the examples of it are usually examples of some other sociatal problem masqueraded. It's taking away from the actual issue because you just divide the people affected by the problem.

Disorders include hyperthyroidism, inflamed tonsils, appendix problems, dysmenorrhea, ovarian cysts, cancer, intestinal parasites, stress in certain individuals, viral infections, bacterial infections, intestinal disorders like Crohns which cause malabsorbtion of nutrients, celiac disease, gastroparesis, and the disorder that I have called Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome. Considering 90% of serotonin is utilized in the digestive tract to cause peristalsis, mood disorders can cause problems with digestion such as IBS which is why it has such a high comorbidity with depression and anxiety.

Thin runs in my family but didn't necessarily reach me. My father's side had all boys that were incredibly athletic and rail thin. My sister was the same way. When she was 16 she had tonsil problems on top of it until she got the removed and once was 5'10" and 118 pounds. She was always teased and accused of being anorexic despite what I knew where she ate like a ravenous dog whenever she came home from track or cross country. She was hypoglycemic and genuinely couldn't get enough calories in her sometimes to support her basal metabolic rate.

Hopefully those genuine medical conditions and my own anecdote help understand that yes, some people are genuinely that thin and really, really wish they weren't.

No common medical conditions would cause anything significant while under treatment or when in remission. You can still gain weight. It's harder, yes, but still very much a possibility. When medical conditions that can do so to someone are ignored, its more of an able bodied problem than a body size problem. These medical conditions are (thankfully) not common, but I do conceded they exist. I don't see them as privilege.

Your sister is anecdotal, but she clearly wasn't eating right. Hypoglycemia is a medical condition she should have been seeing a dietician for. People do have different basal metabolic rates, which just means every person has to adjust according to their own needs. It's something people should be aware of, and something they very much can work around.

Except that you said above that they aren't given anything. So, to you, privileged is about getting something.

And weight isn't always in someone's control. I know a few people on feeding tubes because they have gastroporesis like @Tetiel mentioned.

Not always, but it's not exactly common for weight not to be in someone's control. The average person does not have gastroporesis. It's a rare disease.

Not given in the sense that someone is handed over privilege. Given like the invsivle knapsack. People with privilege are given advantages by that privilege itself.

I'm kind of curious what your definition of privilege is now. I've seen so many different ones. It seems like everyone has their own idea of what privilege means.

#1933586 The Baking Thread

Posted by MozzarellaSticks on 23 December 2015 - 06:20 PM

Holiday baking gave me an idea. This site should have a baking thread. A place to show off what we made, swap recipes, ask for advice, and just generally talk about our baked goods.

To start, why not keep with the holiday theme. What did you guys make for the holidays? What recipes do you favour? Anything passed down in the family?


#1924794 Massive Attack going on in Paris - Possible large scale terror attack

Posted by MozzarellaSticks on 16 November 2015 - 03:35 PM

I hate that whenever am this happens people bring up some other tragedy and ask why no one was crying out then.

First, please it's distracting from the current tragedy. France still deserves mourning. While the other places do as well, you don't get it by insinuating people can't cry for France if they didn't cry for Beruit or Kenya.

Second, it's a lot of relativity. Some places are more dangerous. They have more bombings and killings. We've become disensitized to this. Places like Paris don't see massive casualties often. It's going to shake people up when a place they see as safe is attacked.

Third, is knowledge. Paris is a large, well known city. The entire world knows of Paris. It's a large tourist center. Almost everyone has ties there. People all over the world could have had relatives living there or visiting. It's going to make bigger news because more of the people in media's target audience can relate to it.

It's not a question of what is more tragic. They're all terrible instance where innocent people died. We should mourn them al. But the reality is that people are going to be more concerned about something that affects them personally.

Today I learned caffeine makes breast tissue "ropey." I went for my annual exam and she made me feel it explaining it was normal and if it gets tender to jut cut back on caffeine. I guess the more you know.
