Resentfully: T-1 1 point 3 minutes ago As a literature major and Sigma Tau Delta member I am offended by how frequently I see women espousing their love of Harry Potter. I get a bi-monthly newsletter from Sigma Tau Delta which always gives a questionnaire format biography of some member, usually one who has finished grad school or has recently found a job almost always teaching or liberarians(although why a person wouldnt chose elementary or secondary education as a major to teach or why a person wouldnt chose Liberarian science MFA for that, anyway unemployment is high with humanities majors, that or they either work retail jobs or waitressing/barristering). Most of these women are asked in questionnaire bio thing what their favorite book is. Again these are (mostly) grad students in lit. More often then not they say some book by Harry Potter, often the Prisoner of Azakaban. There favorite book is not by Virginia Woolf, Sylvia Plath, Flannery O'Conner, Jane Austen, Charlotte or Emily Bronte, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Aldous Huxley, Hemingway, George Orwell, Faulkner, or playwrights like Shakespeare, Marlowe, or any of the classic Greek or Roman orators,playwrights,dramatists,epic poets, nope its always fucking Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azakaban. The questionnare is so blatantly stupid that I myself feel stupid for ever attending a college where I studied the subject these women enjoy so much only to realize what truly unsophisticated phillistines these women truly are and how pathetic of it is of me to be their equals. I mean the questionnaire quite literally ask what house would they chose if they went to Hogwarts and you know what they undoubtedly say. Hufflepuff. Motherfucking Hufflepuff. Hufflepuff is the worst house and only a contrarian of the highest order would suggest otherwise. I am not going to get into the intricacies of why its the worst house, or the numerous plot holes associated with Harry Potter or even how many stupid political comments J.K Rowling has made since Trump has been elected (and no I didn't vote for Trump, I was a Berniebro through and through but last minute decided to vote Clinton). TLDR: Women have terrible taste in literature and films. Harry Potter is one of the most overrated fantasy genres of both literature and film in my lifetime. Women are plebs for liking it so much and making JK Rowling a competent but completely ignorant buffoon when it comes to politics a billionaire or previous billionaire. I suppose she has done some philanthropic work, and made donations which has made her lose her billionaire status but that doesn't end my resent on the matter.

By 13, I was an alcoholic. By 14, I was working two full time jobs to keep a roof, and by 16, I FELT I was a mature man, who could handle anything. I avoided relationships because I always felt damaged. One night when I was 17, I was drinking in a bar where I knew the bartenders well enough, and met a girl. She was beautiful, funny, the life arty, and coincidentally, also underage. I made a few jokes, drank a few drinks, and made my way As I started my shitty little car to leave, said girl's friend knocked on my window and asked my age. I lied and said I o avoid any trouble for my bartending friends. One thing lead to another, and that beautiful girl and I left together. The next two weeks were spent drunk, barely sleeping, having sex wherever we could find a bed. Without a care in the world, I lost my job, alienated my friends, and consumed myself with this girl. We would both find out later that we were much younger than we lead eachother to believe. By then, it was too late. When she announced she was "late", we bought two pregnancy tests from the pharmacy. Both showed negative results. When her little friend still hadnt visited two weeks later, we told her mom, who scheduled a doctors appointment, and low and behol were pregnant. I spent the next two weeks BEGGING her to get an abortion, knowing full well I had the emotional capacity of a carrot, and realizing very quickly just how immature I truly was. She, the good christian girl, flat out refused, listing all the reasons she hated me for even asking, and reminding me just what an asshole I was for not loving our "gift from god". We were married the following month, after driving to a state that would allow it at our ages (my mother refused to consent) The next ten months were a mix of screaming, fighting, pretend break ups, and general hell for us both. On the day our different. For the next six months, I worked as many hours as work would provide, in between losing jobs, and she slept. FOr hours, she slept. As he would cry, she slept. By the time my son convinced me I was a monster for not wanting our child was sleeping with a coworker (who was also married children). I begged and pleaded with BOTH of them to end the affair. Within two weeks, she was gone. Her parting was born, our parents gathered round and smiled, and she was just was 18 months, this girl who had ords "Call me when he can another state. For the next year, I spent most nights drunk, contemplating suicide, and wondering what the hell to do with th which she promised she would sacrifice with me, but instead left to pursue. I have spent the better part of 12 years being congratulated on being "an amazing dad" and "stepping up". Secretly, I cry to myself some nights regretting how cold and distant i have been, how selfishly I have treated this child that looks JUST LIKE ME, and how much better he deserved. His mother bounces in and out now, just present enough to remind him he means less th two new kids. He and I have a strange relationship. My anger gets the best of me sometimes over the slightest things and is potty trained". Ironically, she left to join a christian band with her coworker in is child. My mother helped. Her mother helped. But I grew to resent him more and more. I pined for my youth er two new kids. He and I have a strange relationship. My anger gets the best of me sometimes over the slightest thing:s He is respectful, well mannered, extremely intelligent, athletic, and just an overall wonderful person. By his age, I was on my way to being the piece of shit I am today. And yet, knowing all these facts, feeling guilty beyond words for the hardships he has endured as I grew up simultaneously with him, I still feel like I love him because it is my DUTY to love him. Sometimes it feels like we are roommates, my friend who has slept on the couch for thirteen years. He deserves so much better than I have given him. Yet I rest on the fact he has had so much more than I did. And for that, I know if there is a hell, I have reserved my own suite. EDIT: 1 Formatting? EDIT 2: As I read the posts of people with children with deformities and sickness, I cant believe how lucky I am to have a healthy kid that gives me so little grief and so much pride. EDIT 3: Thanks for the gold! And also, thanks for helping me find where the leaks in my face were guys. I have really never expressed all this together, so I appreciate everyone's encouragement and kind words. EDIT 4: I cant believe the sheer number of responses. I apologize for not being able to respond to all of them Thank you everybody for your encouragement and helping me see things a bit more optimistically.

You're a great person and your son is a reflection of that. One day he'll be mature enough to understand and process the whole story, and he'll probably love you even more, if that's possible. One day you'll sit back and relax, and you'll be proud of that man you call your son. I'm sorry life hasn't dealt you an easy hand, but you'll feel lucky one day. I'm glad she didn't stick around because only god knows how much worse it could have been From the sound of it, she didn't have much to contribute positively. You sound like a great, hardworking dad.

@Regrann from @vegan4life616 - @Regrann from @activistvegan - As vegans, we are often criticized for "pushing our views down people's throats", and we are often labeled "extremists", "terrorists" or "Nazis". The real reason people attack and resent us is because we make them take a close look at their habits and their own morality and they don't want to open that door to their soul. Why? Because deep down they know they are doing something wrong, yet they're not ready to change so this creates an uncomfortable feeling called "cognitive dissonance". All social justice movements start with this sort of push-back and it's not until after the fact that people recognize that humanity's archaic and barbaric traditions were morally abhorrent. Perhaps not in our lifetime but some day, I believe the human species will evolve beyond animal exploitation. Why?
