yeah.... there are usually triggers. Try to identify triggers. Grounding exercises and mindfulness. parts work even. general mental health maintenance. it only happens to me when my mental health has gotten really bad or i've been triggery.

it looks like they did a domestic adoption in a foreign country and didn't follow the hague standards or whatever (put in place to prevent child trafficking). This is terrible but they should have consulted a lawyer and followed the guidelines for international adoption.

edit- its well known information , easily accessible on google, that you can't just adopt a kid and bring them in. You have to follow some special protocol which you probably need a lawyer for. This is a tragedy and it could have been avoided. I still hate bureaucracy, but that's just how it works

The number of lone-parent families with at least one child living in temporary accommodation rose by 54 per cent in the last five years to 38,390.

I would bet the increase in single parent families is the result of increased financial and housing insecurity- hard to keep relationships good under chronic stress

I don't understand what you mean... By "kink-critical" I mean that I think people should be aware of the social context in which their kink exists while also being able to enjoy their sexuality in a consensual manner which harms no being involved. I don't think that playing a game in the bedroom is inherently bad or dangerous. I do think that people should think about why they developed that kink and what it says about their perspective of broader issues of gender/power/violence. Kink critical does not mean censorship or shaming.

I don't see the problem. I think being kink-critical is good, but the kinkshaming or making something so taboo that we demonize people for having a friggin kink is blown way out of proportion. Getting so worked up about it takes the focus away from real world problems, like sexism, and puts the focus on a strawman like this kink..
