    On Tuesday, I ended up in A&E at the local hospital. I discovered that I had a kidney infection.

I couldn't inform my professor that I would miss his lesson that day due to needing urgent treatment, and had no way to contact him at that time. Next day, I told a guy within my class that I missed the lesson due to being in hospital (that's all), and to tell the professor if he sees him before I do. He ended up seeing the professor before me, and told him my whereabouts, but also added that I went for a common cold and had a nose bleed. Why would a guy add something like that? The guy in my class could see I was still extremely ill. *Wrong section, but you guys are often wise individuals here.

She replied saying that she felt sorry for my boyfriend (we're so very close and did date at one point). I remember replying to one of my friends talking about the same sex act with disgust, and he asked if I did that. 'Jokingly', I replied with a huge no and a laugh. He said I sound like an awful girlfriend. He even implied my partner might go elsewhere.... I'm sure some people might get the idea of what I'm referring to. :O ------

  • What is your opinion on the 'Friendzone'?

I don't understand how some men act like they deserve a relationship for nice to a woman. I can't have any male friends without other men thinking I'm being cruel, and holding them within the 'friendzone' - like men cannot be friends with women. The idea of the friendzone in my mind is rather silly and childish.

  • Would you tell someone if their partner talked like this about them?

    They only talk about their partner in a sexual manner - how good in bed they are, size of certain body-parts, how far they're willing to go in the bedroom, and openly compliment/drool over members of the opposite gender in front of others. The gender of the people above are irrelevant, really. There's one person on my course that... show more

The gender of the people above are irrelevant, really. There's one person on my course that only mentions sexual things about his long-term girlfriend to everyone. We all knew her bra size, how far she goes, how tight she is before he even uttered her name. (We didn't ask for any of the sexual information). He's told me that the only reason he chose his girlfriend over her sister was because she had a better behind, whilst the sister had better breasts. He constantly drools over images of women, and defends Porn more than anything else. I want to tell her, but maybe she knows he does it? I dunno.

I've found some pretty disturbing things in Pornography without much effort (cannot mention what without possibly getting suspended again). I haven't really ventured anywhere other than the popular ones that all ages can have access to. However, no matter what. many men seem to desperately defend Pornography. It seems to be the only topic some of them feel strongly to defend. They certainly didn't like my personal opinion on this topic.

    I've made it very clear to my adoptive parents that I don't really want a traditional marriage within a cold church, nor wear a long white dress. Just my desires.. My adoptive mother seems to believe this translates as 'I don't want to get married, I have no interest and possibly hate marriage completely.' Instead, I'm just not a fan of religion and churches here are almost always damp, cold, and rather dull. I'd prefer some colour - maybe a manor house by a lake? Somewhere beautiful and full of nature is my preference. Why would someone think I hate the idea of marriage for the above?

Many men act downright aggressive towards homosexual men that give them 'compliments' in the same manner women are meant to see as compliments, especially lesbian women. Being from the LGBT community, I see the above a lot. "Straight men get offended when a gay man hits on them. But I am supposed to be "flattered" when a straight man hits on me even thought they know I am Lesbian?"

The excuse was that it's unnatural to be monogamous, therefore she and others didn't see any issue with what she was doing (some people thought it was fine).
