It's possible that your IP was mistaken for someone else's, or that someone else was assigned your IP because they were using Tor or something similar. It can happen. I'm not sure how you can resolve it on FJ, but most websites have an email that you can contact a mod or the admin on to sort it out.

Why do people say life is supposed to be difficult? Can't I just live an average life with a decent intelligence, moderate pay enough to live in a house and enough to live with a fair amount of spending money, a nice girl.

Do I do the minimum to get what I want out of life, or do the most and go through adversity to possibly get the most out of life.

Do what ever makes you happy bro.

The main difference between most people who are happy and most people who are not is a grateful attitude. My friend did her nursing internship in a poor village in Africa and those people quite literally had nothing and slept six or more people to a one room hut, but she said she'd never seen a group of people so happy in her life. Life is always going to be work, and it doesn't matter how much you've got, but the trick is learning how to enjoy and be thankful for what you do have in the moment. The most unhappy people I've ever met are those who are always lamenting the things they don't have.

Being atheist isn't believing anything, so why would you make a club for it? Not like it's based on science, or anything at all. Means nothing basically. And I disagree with you trying to push your belief, or rather not having a belief on your friends. I don't mean to be a one sided, shallow christian or anything, but it doesn't make sense to push nothing on anyone when they have their own beliefs already.

First: That's totally your right to believe that that is bullshit, not ok to go and express and such and saying someone needs serious help because of it. To each their own, eh?

But also, I don't believe it was 'six days'. The whole concept or whatever of days wouldn't have been created yet, seeing as how there wasn't any world yet. For all we know, those 'days' could have been 500 billion years each, or one of them a trillion years, then the next a week, and all the others actual days, who knows. Even if it was 6 actual days as we see days today, if you're with the belief of a god, then I don't see why not to have big beliefs and say it couldn't be done. Not my belief though, I go more so with the billions of years thing.

Nothing wrong with being gay or anything else, as long as you still are a human being, it's still cool with me
#107560 to #107468 - imthatfella (12/18/2013) [-]
I'm a straight male myself, but I'm all for equal rights for all people, regardless of sexual orientation. However, I don't think that we should be labelling them the way we are, it only serves to create an "us vs. them" mentality. As long as we keep labelling people, humanity will always be divided.

I support homosexual marriage, I have absolutely no problem with that.
But I don't understand people who get sex changes, I think it's so stupid and I just don't understand it, probably never will.
User avatar #107607 to #107551 - energytwinkie (12/18/2013) [-]
Well, everyone views themselves differently. People who go to such lengths to change their looks, view themselves extremely different than most people do. Sometimes a girl looks in the mirror and thinks "That's not me. I'm a boy" so they try to make that come true, it's not all that hard to understand.

If you want a good dicking every night/scissoring, more power to you. You just don't have to go around talking about it all the time. Keep it out of normal conversation. Same for religion.
User avatar #107481 to #107477 - energytwinkie (12/18/2013) [-]
What about to people who are Transgender, Genderqueer, gender N and etc (By this i mean, what about the people who use different pronouns than 'usual'?) not talking about 'dicking', but about something that'd probably come up ina usual conversation
"Hey, could you not call me "her"" etc
User avatar #107491 to #107481 - advicedude (12/18/2013) [-]
If you are born with ovaries and a vagina, you are a woman. You can chose to be a man mentally but If I've known you as a woman for longer, I'll think of you still as a woman. Vice versa for men. You are what you are born with untill you do something about it physically. (Hormones, surgery.
User avatar #107492 to #107491 - advicedude (12/18/2013) [-]
Sure I can call you a woman but in my head you are still a man. or whatever.
User avatar #107483 to #107481 - warrenzthehero (12/18/2013) [-]
If someone asks you to call them by different pronouns, do it.
The only way it would be a big deal is if they go out of their way to look like the opposite sex of their pronoun (ex: Girl want's male pronouns but pushes up boobs, long hair, midriff, heels, etc)
#107494 to #107483 - nospyonme (12/18/2013) [-]
Personally, I use male pronouns for everyone, because a rose by any other name is still a rose. If you are bothered by somebody getting your name wrong, or using the wrong pronoun if you are genderwhatever then you probably have self image problems that you should address so you can be comfortable with whatever anyone calls you.

User avatar #107484 to #107461 - warrenzthehero (12/18/2013) [-]
(x+4)^3 * 6(x-3)^5 + (x-3)^5 * 3(x+4)^2

Product Rule and Power Rule.
User avatar #107486 to #107484 - ferrettamer (12/18/2013) [-]
Fuck, that's what I got, the answer sheet said it was something else though.
Thank you!
User avatar #107488 to #107486 - warrenzthehero (12/18/2013) [-]
Wait, I have a typo.
Should be
(x+4)^3 * 6(x-3)^5 + (x-3)^6 * 3(x+4)^2

What does the answer sheet say?
User avatar #107571 to #107488 - infamoustrapper (12/18/2013) [-]
this is definitely right
User avatar #107576 to #107571 - warrenzthehero (12/18/2013) [-]
No. I put the equation into calculator and it returned a different answer.
User avatar #107622 to #107576 - infamoustrapper (12/18/2013) [-]
your calculator solves derivitives?
User avatar #107629 to #107622 - warrenzthehero (12/18/2013) [-]
It's a TI-89 graphing calculator, as opposed to the normal TI-84.
It can take derivatives, take integrals, simplify equations (even ones with variables), can graph in 3D, can graph integrals, etc. etc.
It's issued on-loan to every student in Calculus in my high school.
Despite all of it's cool features, however, it falters in some respects. Like an 84 can put divisions into fraction format, which makes things crazy easy, or when dealing with exponents, it can make a little box for the number to go into, instead of ^, which is also handy.
An 89 can't do those two things.
User avatar #107630 to #107629 - infamoustrapper (12/18/2013) [-]
well whatever it is, it did it wrong. unless both answers are the same and just simplified differently
User avatar #107631 to #107630 - warrenzthehero (12/18/2013) [-]
I don't know what to think about this.
The 89 has never failed before, even if it formats its answers strange sometimes.
I wish I could have it go step-by-step.
User avatar #107632 to #107631 - infamoustrapper (12/18/2013) [-]
derivatives aren't hard...it's obvious your first answer is right. I don't know what the fuck your calculator and the answer key is doing hahah
User avatar #107634 to #107632 - warrenzthehero (12/18/2013) [-]
I know they aren't hard.
But this erks be to no end.
They must be simplifying weirdly.
User avatar #107638 to #107634 - infamoustrapper (12/18/2013) [-]
the answer key takes the derivative of the first and second parts and multiplies them by 9x + 15. WHY
User avatar #107489 to #107488 - ferrettamer (12/18/2013) [-]
(x+4)^2 * (x-3)^5 * (9x+15)
User avatar #107627 to #107489 - infamoustrapper (12/18/2013) [-]
where the fuck does the 9x + 15 come
User avatar #107490 to #107489 - warrenzthehero (12/18/2013) [-]
Hold on.
Let me find my TI-89
User avatar #107496 to #107490 - warrenzthehero (12/18/2013) [-]
According to my TI-89, it's
3(x-4)^5 * (x+4)^2 * (3x+5)
So it looks like we have three conflicting answers.
Time for some good ol' fashioned pencil-and-pen stuff. Be backs soon.
User avatar #107623 to #107496 - infamoustrapper (12/18/2013) [-]
this matches his answer key. the 3 is distributed
User avatar #107500 to #107496 - ferrettamer (12/18/2013) [-]

I'm feeling bored of like, everything. All i want to do is to play videogames.... I know this isn't much of an adviceable thing. Just felt like getting it out
#107561 to #107458 - imthatfella (12/18/2013) [-]
I went through the exact same thing about the middle of last year. I lost all motivation and just played computer games all day, every day. I started failing school and then even lost the motivation to play games. The way I got out of it was to find something that is something that you've never done before, or don't do often, like some random adventurous sport or something. I personally went sky-diving because I could. I then started running every day and soon I felt better all around, my motivation returned and I got back into my work.

Sometimes we just need a break and a chance to do something different. You can't be bored of everything if you haven't tried everything.
User avatar #107562 to #107561 - gabemczombie (12/18/2013) [-]

That's the spirit! The world is an amazing place, full of heaps of incredible things, all waiting for you to take the first step and experience some of it. Having a positive attitude about things also helps, but I understand that can be difficult without motivation to do anything. To take a step into the unknown takes only a little courage.

It would be meaner to lead him on. But at the same time, you've already said you're not interested. If you can't tell him no, and you've made it clear that you don't want a relationship with him, there's not much else to do but wait, I suppose.

Me and my boyfriend have been together for 4 years and he still doesn't know my fetish
He always asks me, but i just say that i don't have one
but i do, and it's rape porn. Not real rape videos, just the ones that are acted out. i watch it almost every night to femfap to, i'm a little adicted. i'm worried he will find out somehow. i'm extra worried that he might think i actually want to be treated like the women in those videos, i do not
I feel really guilty for it too because if people knew they would think im disgusting and i dont know any girl whos openly admitted to watching porn

Honestly anon, hearing this sort of thing from a girl can kind of mess with a guys head. If you really trust him then share it with him; however, if he is not mature enough he may not understand your fantasy. Not all fetishes are equal, so you may want to have a serious conversation about it with him before you get involved in it.

I got an idea: next time you do it with your bf somehow send a text or message to me. I'll break in, knock him out, plow you, then escape.

being raped/dominated is actually a pretty common fetish for woman. Dont be ashamed and listen to mgfree

Tell your boyfriend.

Rape porn is kinky as fuck
User avatar #107400 - meowykins (12/17/2013) [-]
For a while now, I've felt more female than male. I've actually been using the internet under the guise of a woman, when I myself am male. I've fallen in love with a guy and I've hated myself for lying to him. Because of this, I've revealed everything to him and he still loves me and has said I should take the steps necessary to become the woman that I want to be. The only problem, is how would I break this to my mother, a devout Christian. (Note, this isn't a religion bashing invitation, I really need some help here..)

I agree with previous post. If this is something your heart is set on, go for it. But wait until you are financially independent. If you don't your mother may try everything she can to stop you because there are still things she can try to do as long as you're living under her roof. Also take the time to be understanding and patient with your mother. It will take her a long time to adjust and she may never truly understand your choice. Realize that if she reacts negatively, it's because she loves you and is scared. Be gracious with her.
User avatar #107411 to #107407 - meowykins (12/17/2013) [-]
I also worry about if she directs it to sex. I'm really shy in that regard, so I don't know how I would handle that. If that happens, should I just try to change the subject?
User avatar #107412 to #107411 - delphine (12/17/2013) [-]
She may be shy about it too. When my brother came out of the closet (he's not transgender, he's gay) the only time "Sex" came up as a subject was when our parents expressed concern for his safety since HIV was seen as more common in the homosexual community in their era. They just wanted to be sure he knew how to be safe. Our parents are also Christian, as am I, and even though it took our folks awhile to adjust, they're doing much better with it. No loss of love or support. I wouldn't say I struggled at all to accept my brother's sexuality, and I wouldn't change him for the world. So even though your mother may be religious, she could surprise you.

Should I expect her to think I'm gay, because of my situation?
User avatar #107414 to #107413 - delphine (12/17/2013) [-]
Maybe not "expect" but it's definitely a possibility if she's not familiar with anyone else in a similar situation. The reason my dad initially had a hard time reacting to my brother's being gay is because, growing up, the only gay men he ever met were the really slutty and not very reputable ones. The concept of a loving, committed gay relationship didn't even pass his mind.

Also, do you already have a strong relationship with your mother? You may want to take that time, before you become independent, to nurture the relationship between you and your mom. That will help when the time comes.
User avatar #107415 to #107414 - meowykins (12/17/2013) [-]
My relationship with her is strained. We fight a lot, and it's caused me to somewhat resent her. It's gotten to the point where I don't want to put up with it anymore and don't even want to wake up because of it. I keep so much secret from her, i think dropping something like this would ruin whatever we had left.
User avatar #107416 to #107415 - delphine (12/17/2013) [-]
It could ruin it... Or the act of being truthful with her could salvage it. Just make sure when you tell her, it's from the heart and in a loving way and placing no blame on anyone. Maybe plan it out in a letter if you're not sure if it'll turn hostile or not. Keeping secrets that big from parents is not good. I remember the year before my brother came out of the closet he was a nervous wreck and was having panic attacks all over the place because he was so scared of how they might react. But it turned out much better than expected. Again, just remember that she's your mother and she loves you. Right now she probably doesn't even understand why you resent her. Do you have another family member you are close to who might be more supportive that you can confide in first? That way when you tell your mom there's someone else who can help.
User avatar #107417 to #107416 - meowykins (12/17/2013) [-]
I'm not close with any of my family. I have a former brother-in-law that I speak with constantly, but his brother came out as gay and it put a strain between them. I'd rather not do that to him. I had a friend, but we stopped talking a few months ago, so the only people I talk to are those online.
User avatar #107419 to #107417 - delphine (12/17/2013) [-]
then you may be best to find an online support group. there is plenty of online support for transgender youth and their families, maybe take some time to research which one would be the best fit for you and your family. It will be okay.
User avatar #107420 to #107419 - meowykins (12/17/2013) [-]
I really appreciate all of your help. It isn't really easy to do this, because it's giving away everything I've hidden. I'll look for some support groups. Thanks for your advice ^_^
User avatar #107421 to #107420 - delphine (12/17/2013) [-]
You're welcome. I know it isn't easy but you'll be stronger because of it. Feel free to send a PM any random time I can't guarantee constructive help but always willing to listen.
User avatar #107408 to #107407 - meowykins (12/17/2013) [-]
I'll keep that all in mind, thanks~
#107403 to #107400 - tiredofannon (12/17/2013) [-]
The experience my FtM transgendered friend had leads me to give this advice: wait until you are living on your own, and fully supporting yourself. Sadly, your mother will likely not take the news well and very well may throw you out, as happened to my friend.

Additionally, if you are friendly with your mother's pastor and he/she would support your coming out, come out to the pastor first and use he/she to help ease your mother into the transition, assuming that your mother is of a member of a tolerant Christian branch.
User avatar #107404 to #107403 - meowykins (12/17/2013) [-]
I keep hearing that FtM have easier times with this >_< My mother doesn't attend church, she is just really religious. So, I guess I'll just wait until I'm fully supporting myself. It's getting hard, because I'm really depressed about the whole thing.
#107405 to #107404 - tiredofannon (12/17/2013) [-]
I think they usually do, his family was just made up of unusually high levels of assholes.

It sucks but its one of those things that will get better in the future, don't forget that. There may be some support groups in your city that you can go to without raising your mother's suspicion.
User avatar #107406 to #107405 - meowykins (12/17/2013) [-]
Thanks a lot :3 I'll just try to stay positive.
