    Isn't "mother" *more* inclusive bc you can be a mother without actually giving birth (adoptive parents, fosters, etc.) and doesn't require the parent be born with particular genitals?
    That tweet was a response to someone talking about their birthing experience and the poor medical care they received that almost killed them, not necessarily in the context of eliminating the word ďmotherĒ. I donít think it has to be either/or. Itís good to use inclusive language when talking about the actual birthing experience and itís good to recognize that motherhood takes many different forms and doesnít necessarily mean that someone gave birth.

    Thanks for this explanation. This all makes sense to me.

    What's the connection to "mother's day"? Or does plama just find any controversial tweet and yell "cancel"?

    I feel like the greeters employed by the bank to talk to people in line could be better used as a teller eliminating the line to begin with.

    That what online banking and ATMs are for. If youíre actually inside the bank, you obviously want as much human contact as possible.

    I have never been to a bank that employed greeters to talk to people in line. What the fuck are you talking about Palma?

    I've seen it recently during the pandemic as a crowd control measure. The one time I've been to a bank in now than a year

    I've seen it before pandemic, it's largely a guy trying to weed out people to use the ATM instead of the teller.

    Iíve now gotten three emails to my gmail account advertising online Christian colleges in the last week. I think itís because I keep writing the phrase ďgood faithĒ in the tunnels. So I just wanted to come by here and declare hail satan!

    For me its annoying because I'm mainly going to my safe deposit box, so I don't want to have to talk to the dude and tell him what I'm there for. Guess I should just lie.

    Why wouldnít you tell a bank employee why youíre at the bank?

  12. #1012
    If youíre there to do something that you canít do at the ATM why would you need to lie to them?

    I used to have to deposit my rent into my landlordís account at a bank where I didnít have an account.

    I went through the same deal every month.

    Greeter: What can we help you with?

    Me: I need to deposit this check anó

    Greeter: is it going into your account?

    Me: No.

    Greeter: Then youíll need to see a teller.

    Me: Thank you.

    One of the ancillary benefits of buying a home was no longer needing to do that.
