My ex would pinch and twist my nipples when we were riding in the car and I was driving because he was drinking. He also molested me in other ways in the car and other places. I'd ask him to stop, I was driving and it wasn't safe. He kept on doing it. He said that a man couldn't rape his wife. I told him that the law said different. He raped me anyway. I deeply regret not putting him in jail.

The essential oil craze worries me. I am a firm believer in EO if used properly. I used EOs long before the MLM companies made them popular. I follow a few EO fb groups and there are so many uneducated people mainly because MLM companies give dangerous advice. There was a lady asking what to put on her 6 week old constipated child. I see people asking all the time what EO to use for their children or themselves and the situation needs to be seen by a doctor. Then there are the ones that don't dilute or take the EO's internally. EOs are so concentrated they could do some serious internal and external damage. MLM companies aren't the places you need to be looking for EO education. They are just trying to make a profit with their overly priced products. If you are paying $20-30 dollars for peppermint or lavender you are buying from the wrong company. I don't care what claims they make. They make up their own monitoring system and are able to slap all kinds of claims on their brand.

I don't think anyone is better or worse than they have ever been. I think the constant contact with media makes it all more obvious and in-your-face than it has ever been. Pretty positive everyone has always been fairly sucky.

In response to a confession. I have noticed that police have gotten much nastier over the past 10 years or so. You cannot shield your DD from this forever.

My dd8 and I visited my dad last week and DD talked about some Labor Day homework with him in which she said she learned at school "the police had to break up fights between protesters" during this time. My dad went on a politically fueled rant with me later about how the police hurt peaceful protesters during this time and how I should complain to the school because police are bad and this is inaccurate. It's been days and he has not let this go. Honestly, I don't know how inaccurate or accurate this statement is, but I'm not going to bring this up to her school. He even went as far as telling my DD how all police are bad. I don't turn a blind eye to police violence, but I'm not going to tell my DD all police are bad. Like, dad can you just not have this conversation with my 8 year old? I feel like these kind of discussions should be for older children who understand these kind of situations a bit more...

My ex used to come up to me randomly and pinch my nipples, or pinch them if I was trying to talk to him about something.I had asked him to stop nicely several times. Then I had a VERY bad day at work and started telling him about it, and his response was to pinch my nipples. I screamed at him until he went storming out of the house. He came back an hour later and never did that again.

"Bodily autonomy"- that's what I've been calling it too. I have been negotiating for bodily autonomy in my own home, in my own bed. It sucks that I should have to do that, that I would even have to explain to my husband that I have a right to say that I don't want to be touched at a particular time. Who thinks that they have a right to touch someone in any way they want, at any time they want? Men, that's who. I'm over it.

Dd/27 has 2 weeks to get outta my house. I will be so relieved! Her dad is an enabler, I am not. He knows I've had enough! Took him long enough to get it, but he's got it. She has to figure out her life. I'm sick of it. Plus, going through menopause, being depressed at my job loss, almost cheating on dh, finding out how wonderful beer is, etc.... It's all been a wake up call. I am changing and won't have her holding me emotionally hostage anymore. This is my time.

Yes!! My DH is like that too. Squeezes my butt, pinches my boobs, giving me "love pat" spankings, etc. I sometimes just want to be left alone!!
