[ - ] DH and I took DC to Pride this weekend and an after-party later. At the party I walked into the room and a guy was laying on his back and another guy was in front of him. The guy laying had a huge cock and a great body. He was REALLY sexy. So I went into the room and just assumed the guy in front of him was playing with his ass. I went to grab his cock and that's when I noticed that the dude in front of him had his entire forearm inside the dude. I silently walked away to refrain from judgement, plus DH and DC were waiting to walk in the room and I wanted them to see. If I freaked out he wouldn't have went in. So I told them to go in..and the look on their faces when they walked out were priceless. We're laughing about this as I'm typing right now. SO ODD! To each their own, I guess. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No you don't need to disclose. I would sit down and figure out why you keep having abortions. Especially 2 months into a relationship. IUD is your friend. I say that as a friend who has had 2 abortions and probably would have had more if I hadn't taken a serious look at myself and behavior. [ Reply | More ]

Very few doctors ask that. I just had a baby and only one doctor inquired about previous pregnancies and they were more interested in a miscarriage than a previous abortion. You can also put a note in your file to not discuss x when husband is in the room. Any good doctor would respect that. [ Reply | More ]

Not only that. The most common family unit in the urban favelas in Brazil now are 2 adults with only 1 kid to make sure they go to university. Those only children or 2 kids don't change countries because their parents can offer them with much more than when they are 10 siblings in a poor rural area that depended on corn pre-NAFTA, like it was Mexico's case in the early 90s. Mexican families are much smaller now, kids down there have much more opportunities than picking tomatoes for us for pennies. [ Reply | More ]

I'm not a parent myself yet, but growing up my mom always told me about her parents and how they were such good parents, and how loving and supportive they always were, and that she tried to emulate them as a parent. My dad, on the other hand, had abusive, horrible parents (although his dad was a fine grandfather, and his mom is finally an ok grandmother in her 90s). If we were on a long drive, for example, and I had to use the bathroom, he would make it a priority to find the nearest place with a bathroom, and he would say "My mom and dad would have never done this. They would have thrown us a towel to sit on in case we couldn't hold it in..." He wasn't saying it to elicit sympathy or get a pat on the back for being a good parent, it was more that he was still haunted by memories of his mom and dad and wanted to make sure he was a much better parent. Even at a very, very young age I remember noting that both of my parents turned out to be what I consider wonderful, loving parents, but both got there from very different roads. [ Reply | More ]
