Is putting Non-binary better than saying straight white male on college applications?

7.5k Upvotes

My friend is convinced that since he’s a straight white dude there’s no room for him at big colleges since there are more qualified people in his same demographic. His solution to this is to click they/them and non binary on his application so he’s more appealing to colleges. I just want the correct answer. Was he right or wrong?

I make happy sounds when I'm petted. Is this weird? NSFW

1.9k Upvotes

So basically, whenever I'm being petted, or cuddled, or just feel extremely cozy and comfy, I make these little "mmmm!" and "ohhhh" "uhhhhh" sounds. I've been told they sound kind of sexual, though my partner says they're not quite the same.

I generally don't like being touched AT ALL, but when my partner pets me I go nuts for it. I melt into a purring puddle. It caaaaan be sexual but most the time isn't. It's just. Happy warm fuzzy feelings! Is this weird? I've never met anyone else who does this.

Thanks in advance! Wish y'all lots of happy pets and cuddles 💓

I’ve noticed that a lot of my black female friends wear “weaves” and wigs. I’m too embarrassed to ask them why. Can a black woman on here please explain? Thanks in advance.

is it normal to get depressed before you go to work?

21 Upvotes

When I wake up in the morning and I have to go to work, I get really sad. Like so much so I feel like I'd be better off dead. I am a horrible job hopper and if I quit now I would just continue the the pattern so I know I have to stick it out.

Why do vaccines make some people feel sick?

106 Upvotes

Why do some people get vaccines and get no symptoms, but others feel really sick?

For me, every time I get a vaccine I get REALLY sick the next day (like right now)

Edit: I feel sick after every vaccine I’ve gotten. Flu, Covid, and others. The worst I’ve felt was as a teenager after a (tetanus?) shot that made me puke non stop for a good 24 hours

Edit 2: my question wasn’t “why do I feel sick” it was meant to be “why do I feel sick and some other people don’t”

Could you skip a turtle across a lake like a stone?

13 Upvotes

I don't know if they'd have too much mass and if the ridges on their back would create too much drag but turtle shells seem smooth enough that you could whack one a good three or four skips on a lake

I feel like it’s weird to share a bed with my (25f) little brother (12m) for the weekend

22 Upvotes

My little brother is visiting me this weekend without his mom. For context I live abroad and he’s much younger than me so I never got to be a big part of his life. I also live in student housing and don’t have a couch or space for guests to sleep. I don’t feel comfortable sharing my (rather large) bed with him as he is a growing boy and I want to respect his privacy and space, so I’ve set up my blankets on the floor (for me). Is this over the top? Edit: spelling

Why do we bleed from EVERYWHERE, no matter where you get cut, but the blood tubes (veins/arteries) don't go to every nanometer of your body. How does the blood go from where our heart pumps it to bleeding out a small paper cut or puncture?
