I just realized that we are all parents. I've been taking care of myself since I could understand. We have the potential to be as good a parent to others as we are to ourselves.
PS: It came about because I tired of the refrain that parents think we don't understand what it feels like to be burdened because we don't partake. Then why bother explaining homosexuality to anyone that doesn't partake? The math is poor. 22-Sep-2019

Bishop says if a pregnant woman enjoys anal sex, the baby will be gay
A bishop has claimed if a pregnant woman enjoys anal sex, this will transfer to the baby and it will be gay.
The shocking revelation came from The Most Reverend Metropolitan Neophytos (Masouras) of Morfou of the Church of Cyprus on Tuesday (23 July).
In a short video posted to YouTube, he said the lack of spirituality and knowledge of Christ and the Orthodox religion creates homosexuals.
And the ‘fault’ lies with the parents, who ‘pass on’ the ‘sickness’ of homosexuality, the bishop claimed.
Basically, when a woman enjoys anal sex or any ‘abnormal sexual contact’, ‘a desire is created, which is then transmitted to the unborn child’.

Death rates increasing for U.S. adults aged 25 to 44: CDC
Death rates are on the rise for young and middle-aged U.S. adults, with white and black people experiencing higher mortality than Hispanic people, according to new research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published Tuesday.
Between 2012 and 2017, the rates for white and black people aged 25 to 44 increased 21% each for both groups, while Hispanic people of the same age range saw a 13% rise.
Sally Curtin, a statistician at the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics and one of the report’s authors, said an uptick in suicides, homicides and drug overdoses contributed to the higher rates for the younger part of the group.

New bill allows Oregon students to take 'mental health days'
Oregon will allow students to take "mental health days" just as they would sick days, expanding the reasons for excused school absences to include mental or behavioral health under a new law that experts say is one of the first of its kind in the U.S.
But don't call it coddling. The students behind the measure say it's meant to change the stigma around mental health in a state that has some of the United States' highest suicide rates. Mental health experts say it is one of the first state laws to explicitly instruct schools to treat mental health and physical health equally, and it comes at a time educators are increasingly considering the emotional health of students. Utah passed a similar law last year.
Oregon's bill, signed by Gov. Kate Brown last month, also represents one of the few wins for youth activists from around the state who were unusually active at the Capitol this year. Along with expanded mental health services, they lobbied for legislation to strengthen gun control and lower the voting age, both of which failed.
The only way to save your kids from the future is to start parenting them. We picked the wrong people to represent parenthood. Self-parenting is neglect.
Take the best from your parents (if they have no qualifications, start anew,) opine what it taught you and put what's left to the test. Your children follow suit, perfecting your mistakes and enabling the perfect parent and child of the future. We weren't supposed to rewrite it. Even if you rewrote the bible, there is only so much you can stretch before all the reason is sucked out of it. Our kids can't choose a sex to be because they are avoiding being like either of you. For people who have all the rights in the world you spend most of it hating each other. If you're going to have children, you better understand both sexes and all the in-betweens.
I don't care what sex any of your children choose to be, please raise them to be strong. We can take it. Maybe one day the environment will thank them. 17-Jul-2019
10 ways you're sabotaging your relationship with your kids
The relationship between a parent and child can be a complicated one. It can sometimes feel impossible to balance the duties of parenthood with a desire to develop a positive, trusting, and happy connection with a child. That said, sometimes you might be damaging the bond between you and your kid without even realizing it.
Here are some ways that parents might be unknowingly sabotaging their relationship with their children.
You use white lies to protect or control your child
It can sometimes be tempting to lie to your child in order to manage their behavior or avoid a tough conversation, but according to the experts, telling white lies can oftentimes do more harm than good.
LGBTQ Acceptance Declining Among Young Adults, According to Study
A startling poll released by GLAAD shows LGBTQ acceptance is declining among younger Americans.
The "Accelerating Acceptance" survey of nearly 2,000 people, conducted by the Harris Poll, finds less than half of non-LGBTQ Americans aged 18-34 are comfortable with LGBTQ people and issues pertaining to them. The number dropped from 53 percent last year to 45 percent this year.
The results show a lower acceptance level of LGBTQ people among young Americans than was found among all adult Americans, which remained at 49 percent, the same as 2018 but significantly lower than the 53 percent reported in 2017.
Kids Who Do Chores Become More Successful Adults, According to Harvard Researchers
Kids who do chores will grow up to be more successful adults.
There, we said it.
The value of assigning children household chores is something older generations took for granted. Unfortunately, this way of thinking seems to have slipped out of favor in recent years, much to the detriment of today’s kids.
“By making them do chores—taking out the garbage, doing their own laundry—they realize I have to do the work of life in order to be part of life,” Julie Lythcott-Haims, former Dean of Freshmen at Stanford University and author of How to Raise an Adult, told Tech Insider.
Porn Habits of Average Teen Aren’t Dangerous, Says Study
Whether it was the thrill of finding your parents’ Playboy stash or locked-down cable TV channel, a lot of people can agree that porn was a major theme of approaching adulthood. Fortunately, a new study suggests that watching porn as a teen didn’t mess you up as much as you might have thought.
In fact, a new study published in The Journal of Sex Research suggests that the porn-watching habits of teenagers – both male and female – are not harmful to their eventual sexual health. Contrary to what so many parents and preachers would have one believe, this recent bit of research seems to suggest that it's perfectly fine for Tom, Dick, Anna, or Jane to indulge in some porn every once in a while.
Tips For Keeping A Positive Mindset
Mental health should be a major priority for everyone, is it deals with our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. Mental health impacts our day to day life by affecting how we think, feel, and interact. It can change the ways that we deal with stress, relate with others, and make decisions.
Unfortunately, mental health is something that can be affected negatively by a number of things including mental illnesses and disorders. Mental disorders like anxiety and depression are somewhat common. In fact, more than half of all Americans will be diagnosed with some type of mental disorder at some point in their life.
Tips To Help Improve Positivity
One of the best ways to remain positive is just to emphasize postive thinking. It should be noted that positive thinking doesn’t mean ignoring problems when they occur or looking at the world when blinders on. It simply means that you should approach difficult or unpleasant situations in a positive and productive way in which you look to remain happy and find solutions when you feel they are needed.

Dave Bautista Slams Priest Calling for Pride Month Boycott: 'You Don't Speak for Most Catholics'
Dave Bautista had no time for a Catholic priest denouncing Pride Month.
On June 1, the first day of Pride Month celebrating the LGBTQ community, Rhode Island bishop Thomas Tobin sent out a tweet urging his Catholic followers not to participate in any Pride related activities.
“A reminder that Catholics should not support or attend LGBTQ ‘Pride Month’ events held in June. They promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Catholic faith and morals. They are especially harmful for children,” Tobin wrote on Twitter.
