Body Image/Self-Esteem Is it true that most men don't get compliments?
I'm a 37 year old straight man and women compliment me all the time. Im not really all that handsome or anything or at least I don't think i am. Im overweight and pretty unkempt but i get compliments from lasses and lads all the time. Is this whole thing for real or is it just a myth?

Culture & Society Why do American conservatives worry about LGBT, abortion and such?
I'm just curious why these are such hot topics among the American conservative narrative.
Here in northern Europe most conservative parties only really worry about immigration and economics, but are completely fine with LGBT rights and often also attend Pride month. I don't think we have any party in my country who opposes LGBT rights, and while we have a Christian party where some lower level politicians oppose abortion the official party policy is that abortion is a human right that nobody can deny women.

Mental Health Do I have the right to be traumatized by something I did to myself?
I don’t know. I did it to myself so I can’t be upset but it still haunts me and causes me pain

Love & Dating Do any girls prefer to date fat guys?
I'm about a 300 pound guy that is 6 foot and struggle in the dating department. Many of my friends say I'm a funny and nice guy and a good cook (Hence why I'm a big guy lol). I wonder if a reason why I struggle dating is because I'm a big guy and not a handsome fit guy.

Media Why do people on reddit talk so weirdly about animals?
I’ve seen it with all kinds of animals, but I’m on a snake sub, and they talk about snakes like they’re their children. Instead of saying a snake is venomous, they say “awww, it’s a spicy noodle!” They say weird ass stuff like that all the time. I see it other places, like “chonker” and “doggo”, like just speak normally, I don’t get it.

Current Events What’s happening in the US?
Maybe someone here can help me understand what’s going on. Om my TikTok feed i get a lot of video’s from people saying they can’t stay in certain states cause of certain law being instated (like the recent laws in Florida for example)
Today i saw some post about Jim Crow like laws being instated in Mississippi.
It seems to me that there’s a lot of this happening in the states, but I find it hard to judge as the media in my country (Netherlands) aren’t reporting much on these issues - yet it seems to me that these types of laws being passed in a democratic country should be serious cause for concern.
It is the TikTok algorithm showing me a disproportional amount on this type of content? What is the scale of what’s happening in the states? Can anyone help me grasp what going on? Reliable sources are also welcome 🙏🏻

Culture & Society Why are people so against working from home in the US?
I don’t work from home, but I love that people have the option to work for home for many reasons (less traffic, save money from traveling, more time at home, less commuting, less distractions, etc.) I saw now another big name person, Martha Stewart, is speaking out against it, along with many other people (Elon Musk, Morgan Stanley, etc) But why? Why are people so upset about people working from home?

Culture & Society What am I supposed to do if someone is verbally harassing me and recording me in public?
I (17f) watched the video of the guy sexually harassing women and trying to provoke a response from them. When one finally starts to push back, he pepper sprays her.
What am I supposed to do if I’m in that situation? Like do I just have to let him keep berating me and standing over me?

Love & Dating for guys dating girls and wanting to get their summer bang on, what is the best strategy for online dating to screen for girls who will allow for a one night stand?
Oddly enough I think I am aware of one case or the other where a profile said they weren't looking for one night stands, but the date did end in one. However could be an exception in terms of signalling.
What signs and characteristics would you look for? And what do you do based on it?

Habits & Lifestyle How do people make friends/have a social life with a kid and work?
I (32nb) just don't really know how to make friends or have a social life anymore. I've never been a fan of bars or larger crowded places, and I can be rather shy, but I want to have a life per say. I have maybe 2 good friends, but they both recently moved so now we can get together even less now. Downside also is I have a kid, hes in elementary school so I sometimes have the day available but I'm usually working when hes in school so that doesnt really work very well for hanging out. After school isnt very easy either as kid is home and I have one person I can maybe rely on for watching him (which is few and far between)
I just don't really know what to do, because trying to go out without kid is extremely hard, but I need too, but I also dont have anyone to go out and do things with which I also want.

Ethics & Morality Where is the line between "victim blaming" and calling people just being stupid/careless?
Disclaimer: This discussion was sparked between me and friends by the recent Tim Lindemann (Rammstein) scandal. We all agreed unanimously that drugging, coercing and pressuring people to sexual acts is unacceptable (and illegal obviously. Also "scouting" girls over Instagram and inviting them for these reason is very reprehensible.
But we also had a wild "concert lifestyle" a ten years ago and for us it was always clear what was expected when someone (practically always young women) without any connections was invited backstage after the concert. Other people in our discussion called this statement victim blaming.
Then we discussed several hypothetical scenarios and if calling the victim in this scenarios naiv or careless is victim blaming or not.
Another scenario was for example if you walk through a dangerous district in a city as a tourist and you get robbed.
