      • OP: this is what I had sort of assumed--but if a man transgenders to a woman, and pursues relationships with women, is he a lesbian? (Sounds like I'm joking or snarking. I'm not.) 9 hr 28 min ago

    Bought a rotisserie chicken tonight and after I reheated and cut the strings on it it opened up in such a way that it looked like a frog--legs splayed out--and as I was cutting it up for leftovers what I guess was the spinal column (or something bony and spiraled) fell out. I do not think I can ever eat chicken again.

    both upset. She regrets it completely so I am not sure punishment here is required; It was a mistake and she is very intelligent; not just because its my dc...u know ur dc's...how can I help her cope and ME cope too? I know in my previous post the responses were to take away devices; this is not a case of continuous bad behaviour, rather what do you do when they come to you and say they made a mistake? (of this proportion?) Signed, just trying to be a good parent like you.

      clearly was wrong. Those are my hallmarks of maturity to use their own devices. I don't think you can trust her with them at this point. Also, and this is crucial, contact the site and tell them her age. They can be thrown in jail for having any part in the transmission of a nude photo of a minor.
