Your first time is NOT supposed to hurt

You are NOT supposed to bleed

If you bleed, that is NOT your hymen being ‘popped’, it is a tear due to lack of sexual arousal and natural lubrication.

This is all a MYTH perpetrated by men so they don’t have to make sure you are comfortable and sufficiently aroused enough before you have sex with them. It is an excuse to disregard and hurt you.

I just really want women to know this.

NONONO NOT TRUE.

NOT TRUE NOT TRUE.

Vaginas are a certain size, and so are penises. Well lubricated or not (don’t question me about it, but I KNOW) sometimes there’s a large amount of pressure when your parts connect because hey, your vagina is not used to having something larger than a tampon out up there!

It’s true that there is no such thing as “cherry popping” but there can be tears, it might bleed, it might not. It might hurt, it might not. And what about women who no matter how aroused still don’t get very lubricated down there?

Science. Science. Science.

It’s about respecting your partner, it’s about knowing how deal with sex being slightly painful. It’s about making sure your partner is comfortable with continuing, it’s about reassuring your partner about your emotional commitment (whether it be a large one or not).

Sometimes sex just hurts. It is not some “myth” perpetrated by men. No no no.

STOP.

STOP.

Central heterochromia is where the central (pupillary) zone of the iris is a darker color than the mid-peripheral (ciliary) zone.

I have this!

Isn't not believing in Jesus basically one of the main things that separates us from Christianity though? How can they call themselves jewish if they believe in Jesus as the messiah?!

It’s not as central to our differences as people often think - Christianity and Judaism are often close to complete opposites on many things, we’re a completely different religion with a different history and different culture and traditions and prayers and texts and belief systems and values and more and more and more, but yes, if someone believes in Jesus as the messiah, they are not Jewish.

((if they were born Jewish they are still ethnically Jewish but they are NOT religiously Jewish and their religion is NOT Jewish and it’s definitely not Judaism))

As someone whose background is in Christianity and is now learning Judaism, I want to back this - there are SO MANY THINGS about basic fundamental behavioral and philosophical beliefs that are completely opposite in so many ways that aren’t about Jesus.

The one that sticks out to me the most, at the moment, is the view of earth vs heaven - whether we should be focused on making the world the best place it can be, helping people on earth, viewing this life as the important one; or if we should primarily be focused on making sure people are going to heaven and know about jesus and LITERALLY EVERYTHING ELSE including making sure people have food and clothes and a roof over their heads is secondary, because this life is “just temporary” and the important life is the one that will come after.

That’s not to say that Christians don’t help people, but I’m gonna wager a sizeable amount of their helping people is actually focused on giving them a chance to proselytize, rather than just helping because that person needs help.

Case in point: I go to a food bank at a church near my house, to supplement our grocery supply, because we’re poor as shit.  DESPITE EXPLICITLY TELLING THEM that I was not Christian and was in fact in the process of converting to Judaism, in order to get my bag of food, I have to let them pray for me, out loud, “in Jesus’ name”.  Every time I go, they try to get me to come to sunday services at their church.  EVERY TIME.  And every time, I say “no thank you, I already go to shabbat services at my synagogue”.  And I can’t just say “I’d prefer not to pray” because I don’t get any food if I don’t let them pray.  Their attempts at “saving my soul” are more important than helping me make sure we have enough to eat this week. And this is common, I know at least two of the churches I attended as a kid had food bank programs where they did this - I volunteered at them.  (I helped pass out the bags, not pray, but I knew what went down, and at the time I thought it was okay because their souls were SO MUCH MORE IMPORTANT than their bodies.)

I challenge you to find a Jewish-run food bank that caters to anyone who needs help, Jewish or gentile, who would force that on you if you were of a different religion, or just not interested.  I doubt you’d find many, if ANY, because it goes against every Jewish belief I’ve learned, to refuse to help someone in need because they aren’t comfortable with you praying over them.

That’s hugely indicative of the difference between Jewish and Christian mindsets, in my opinion. And like.  I’m sure it’s more nuanced than I am aware, and there are differences I don’t know about yet, but just.  THAT ALONE is proof enough, I think, that the very fundamental thinking BEHIND the religions, disregarding Jesus entirely (if you can even do that with Christianity), is so vastly different.  So the idea that someone can be Jewish but still follow the basic tenets of Christianity - regardless of their belief in Jesus as the messiah - is just ludicrous to me, because Christianity is absolutely not compatible, as it’s practiced today, with even the very basics of Judaism.

….that got way longer than I meant it to be.  TL;DR - IT IS NOT ALL ABOUT JESUS.  (and lemme know if this rant is inaccurate or out of line at all, Miri, I don’t want to step on toes, this is just something I felt like i could weigh in on given the topic at hand)

Everybody READ THIS.

because a lot of people dont seem to get this:

  • golems are from jewish folklore. dont treat them like a generic fantasy creature, thats appropriative
  • kabbalah is a specifically jewish religious tradition. dont practice it if youre not jewish and dont use kabbalah symbolism as…

A latte in Dutch is called “koffie verkeerd” which literally is “coffee amiss” (that’s coffee fucked up basically lmao)

In Hebrew a latte is cafe afooch, meaning, opposite coffee.
