Reading stories like this make me cringe. There's few things I find more infuriating than the standards certain women will tie men down in hopes he'll stop chasing his dreams, settle down, and raise a baby to become a "man" - or their standards of one.……

This is literally why I'm afraid to enjoy a sex life with anyone. It's 2015 now. I'm really hoping that the age-old paradigm of "grow up and be a man" is acknowledged as a double-standard and is thrown out the window within a decade. The justice system needs to respect the equality of both genders and not expect the man to suddenly put his life aside when he has no say in how his life affects the child. If he chooses to sign away his rights and not participate in raising the child or paying child support, the woman can either terminate the pregnancy or put the child up for adoption...or raise the child herself, with help from family.

Besides, if a man tricked a woman into getting pregnant unexpectedly, what do you think she would want to do?
I live in GA and it's hot as hell here in summer. Winter is barely a thing because we get snow once every 5 years. Worse yet, it's very little and I live in an area where the like-minded opinion is they hate snow. They love hot summers and going to the lake. I don't like muggy weather. I also dislike bad traffic.

Looking for a place with a temperate climate, a good snowfall every winter, good traffic, a place that doesn't have bad allergies and pollen problems, and low crime rate. I can specify further if need be, but I'm getting tired of living in Augusta.

Since July or so, I've been waking up nearly every day in pain. My eyeball sticks to my eyelid and pulls when I wake up, causing moderate to severe pain. I've had to go to the ER once and have woken up in excruciating pain on several occasions. My vision goes blurry, but usually recovers. However, due to a string of these happening over the last couple of weeks, my vision has remained blurry in both of my eyes. I haven't had a chance to see my optometrist, and won't be able to until December 17th.

My dad and doc think I might be spending too much time behind screens, like my phone, computer, and video games (TV and 3DS). I'm a gaming addict, so it's very hard to pull me away from those.

When I've had it so bad that my eyes could not look in other directions without hurting, I was forced to wear an eyepatch. These days are incredibly boring since there's nothing I can do but nap and rest my eyes. They get better, I play games again, and the abrasions start again until the cycle repeats itself.

I put eye drops in my eyes every day - several times a day - and ointment lubrication covering my lower eyelid every night before I go to bed. These are supposed to keep my eyes moist throughout the night, but I still wake up with stinging pains in my eyes, sometimes before 4 hours of sleep.

My vision now is so bad that I have to increase the size of the text on the screen as large as possible just to see what I'm reading or typing. I can still play video games - since I can still see shapes - but my vision has gotten worse and I'm very blurry. I hope it comes back one day, but without playing games or having much other options due to my poor eyesight, I'm getting worried.

What do you know about this condition and what is out there to try? I'd like to start waking up without these pains anymore and have my vision return someday soon.
I'm 26 and I've been this way for most of my adult life. I've had very limited sex experience with women, largely due to being socially awkward, and as a result of one thing or another, frequently rejected. It's not "oh hey, I got rejected. I'll meet someone else in a month or two." I've gone years without relationships or even dates or hookups. I've only had one actual girlfriend who I dated for four months. We had sex on occasion, but one of the reasons we stopped was because of my fear of getting her accidentally pregnant.

In no uncertain terms do I feel this fear is largely because of my dad's paranoia. He's paranoid, yes, but also thinks very far ahead - sometimes too far ahead, and enough to make the danger outweigh the privilege. Even though I'm an adult, he's never liked it when I took risks, and as a result, that's weighed in on my psyche. I can't be like normal people who have the occasional hookup because I'm just too scared.

I am in absolutely no condition, mentally or financially, capable of raising a child, nor do I intend to anytime soon. I will legally fight it tooth and nail and waive my paternity rights if I can. Having a baby does not interest me. Some people have good relationships and the girl gets pregnant, but the father stays because he loves them. Once again, I've only had one real relationship. I couldn't fathom the fear of getting someone I hooked up with pregnant and them keeping the baby at my expense.

There's always foreplay. True. But even if I use protection, if you look up wikihow, everything from "pre-cum" to not having lubrication can cause the condom to rip and get the woman pregnant. I have serious fear in sex, something I otherwise almost always fantasize about. It's a wonderful feeling, but one that triggers my OCD and makes me paranoid that I somehow maybe accidentally got her pregnant and I won't know for the next few weeks to a month.

The next time I meet a girl, whether she wants me as a boyfriend or for the night, I don't want to get cold feet and run away because what I wanted was stopped because I was too scared to go through with it. Those of you with active sex lives, how do you cope with not getting someone (or yourself) pregnant? What should I do?
I updated my characters in Soul Calibur V, and since I got my Elgato Game Capture HD, I believe it's time I showed you guys some storyline fights!
