2023.06.06 23:43 ravegoblin [REQ] ($1853) (#CEDAR PARK, TX, USA) ($2100-2150 Repayment 06/24/2023) (Paypal,Cashapp)

I never anticipated finding myself in a situation where I would have to reach out and ask for financial assistance. However, due to everything happening on my end, I am currently troubles with bills that need to be settled before I receive my upcoming paychecks.
For work I frequently travel and recently a new employment opportunity that offers a higher salary. This is a positive step forward in my career, but the transition period has caused a temporary gap in my finances. I have documentation to prove the incoming funds that will soon be deposited into my account, which I believe will help any concerns you may have.
I maintain record of my expenses and create a comprehensive payment schedule. At this time, I require a loan amount of $1853 to address the immediate bills and responsibilities that cannot be postponed any further. I am confident I will make timely repayments and will pay the borrowing amount full on June 24, 2023.
Note: 2 weeks seems like alot of time so I can do $2100 repayment, maybe $2150 at best.

2023.06.06 23:33 AuntieKuma Areas of Intrigue and Mystery

Hi all you cool Cleveland cats, (and apparently all you good folks from the "Cleveland Area" as well!)
If anyone has the time and inclination could you offer me some advice on where to stay while visiting your fine city and it's environs? I'm just in town for a few days in July to catch my favorite musicians at the Agora and do a tiny bit of sightseeing. My main question is where to stay. I've got some good options downtown near the Arcade, downtown near the water and downtown in the theater district, but I'm also looking at a couple places in Little Italy, Tremont, and Ohio City, and am open to other suggestions. It's been a little tricky for the casual out-of-towner to figure out where the interesting parts of town are. Does your China Town have much to it? it looks a little empty on street-view but maybe I'm just not looking in the right spot. I live in a large U.S. city myself so I'm not bothered by places being a little bit sketchy or rough around the edges, I'm mostly worried I'll accidentally choose someplace super boring with nothing around or open past 6pm. I won't be driving so parking isn't a consideration, but handy public transportation is a plus (though I'm also happy relying on cabs/Lyft/Uber).
Any activity suggestions will also be very much appreciated, though honestly I'm being greedy because I've got quite a good list going from other peoples posts, and am already going to have a really hard time choosing! Things I like: cool old brick architecture, walkable neighborhoods with stuff to look at, interesting independent shops: second hand clothes, local art, antiques, books, records, comics, etc. unique local eateries, live music, stand-up, live theater, museums, parks, zoos, cemeteries, botanical gardens. I'm not super into bars, sports or sports bars. I'm on the fence about visiting the Rock Hall. ...and don't worry pals, I'm already planning to hit the world famous Lido Lounge ;-)

2023.06.06 21:48 Designer-Contest2844 Is my (25F) mom (60sF) a narcissist?

Hi All, I (25F) have been in therapy for the past year and a half to focus on an estranged relationship with my father over his narcissistic tendencies, where I always highlighted my mother as the "good" parent. However, follow some significant reflection, I think that my mother (60sF) might be a narcissist in her own right and I'm looking for feedback.
My mom always likes to say that from the time she was pregnant with me, she intended me to be her "buddy" through a marriage that she felt largely isolated in. Growing up as an only child, she was incredibly involved in my care, but had significant parenting flaws - she was physically abusive, and used to pack a bag and threaten to leave while crying crocodile tears if I ever threw childhood tantrums. Because she was the "better" parent in comparison to my dad, I was often willing to excuse her behavior. Now that I'm an adult, I find her behavior more than I can bear.
My parents separated about 4 years ago, and I find that my mother has made the divorce her entire personality. Though she is estranged from my father and her former in laws, she makes consistent attempts to make up narratives about their lives that involve her, including how my terminally ill grandmother (her former mother in law) wants my mom to visit her deep down and is waiting to die until their relationship has closure. She also highlights how she was "wronged" in every interaction with my paternal side of the family, even though she was the "perfect" wife.
This tendency to insert herself into the lives of others has taken root in my own life. I've done quite well for myself at my age - I have two Master's degrees, and was recently promoted to a senior role at my current company on a much shorter time frame than expected. However, my mother finds a way to insert herself into these accomplishments, either to elevate herself or diminish my capacity. She claims that I'm only smart because she paid for tutoring, read to me as a kid, etc, and has established the expectation that I should live at home with her until I'm "independent" (I have both the job security and financial resources to live alone). She also repeatedly makes comments about how I should aim to buy her a house "close to mine when I move out," and regularly talks about how if I hypothetically win the lottery, my first goal should be to "buy my mother a house."
My romantic relationship has also become a point of contention for her - I've been with my boyfriend (25M) for the past three years, and I feel that he's the one- we've grown alongside one another through career ups and downs, he's shown me genuinely compassion, and allowed me to let down my walls. However, my mother feels it necessary to diminish our relationship, highlighting that "I only love him because he popped my cherry," how we're a poor match because he's like my father and I should pursue someone she thinks is right, and delegitimizing attempts to move in together as "playing house." She also insinuates that my boyfriend is using me for money even through we both make comparable incomes and maintain entirely separate finances.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, but what do we think, Reddit? Is it time to delve into my mother potentially being a narcissist with my therapist?

2023.06.06 21:16 Rainak_75 Best place to get Toyota RAV4?

Hi I will move to Austin, Tx in a few months and I need to get my first car there. Toyota RAV4 is my dream car (either 2018 or 2021). What dealerships do you recommend in Austin? Anywhere near Cedar Park?
Also is it better to buy a car through the official toyota website or local dealerships?

2023.06.06 21:04 Newt_Troll I just quit my part-time job, and I want to share my experience with those of you that feel "stuck". You deserve to be told this (tldr at end).

TL;DR AT THE END
PREFACE: I'm likely not in the same position as a lot of you. I didn't need this part-time job. So naturally, I had more of a "I'm not taking your shit" attitude than most other people. BUT, because of that, and because of this sub in a lot of ways, I noticed some things that some of you might find valuable/interesting.
I'm going to type out some random bullet points, and try to bring this back together at the end.
SO...I know a lot of you have worse problems than these, and I feel you man. This is just off the top of my head, and no, I'm not looking for advice.
What I REALLY want to do, is to sort of piggyback off the act your wage concept and take that further to the KNOW YOUR WORTH concept. There's a couple people at that gas station that really really need that job and they are GOOD people. And sometimes over the past couple months, I kind of seen your posts in their eyes if that makes any sense.
So, about this "shit I did". Let me give you an example of a conversation I had with the manager my second week there:
ME: Looks at schedule, sees 5 days on, only agreed to take the job for 2-3 days/wk max.
ME: "Uh, hey manager, what's up with the schedule?"
MANAGER: "What do you mean?"
ME: "I'm on for 5 days this week..."
MANAGER: "Ya we're short lol." (This is because of their turn over rate. I've been going to this gas station for 20 years. I've seen more new faces in that gas station in the past 3 years since they bought it compared to the past 20 years, not hyperbole.).
ME: "Not my problem. Pick 3 days, I'll work those, preferably in a row."
MANAGER: "Excuse me? These are the days you're scheduled."
ME: "Then we don't have a working relationship. I'll work 2-3 days a week, thats it. That's on my application, my resume, and was covered in the interview AND orientation. I have another job, and I'm not quitting that one. So is this going to be a problem (as I begin to take the store key off my key ring)?"
MANAGER: ".........no. WED, THURS & FRI then?"
ME: "Sure, awesome (smiles and walks away)."
She looked at me like she wanted to kill me, no joke.
So that might not sound like much at first glance. But holy crap I didn't realize the power I was wielding all because I have another job. And EVERY interaction with these people was like this.
Another example, I worked Easter (found out SAT btw). Me and the other person busted our ass all day. Busy as hell as most places where I live where closed. About 6-7 hours into the shift things calmed down and we sat on some milk crates for maybe 15-20 minutes. Next day our manager tells us we should stop standing around because they seen us last night. My response? I didn't say anything, instead I started talking to the camera saying all kinds of wild shit ie "You should put prices on this stuff because that's douchey as hell." "I can't believe it's 2023 and people out here acting like it's 1923 not giving people lunch breaks." "Yes yes I'm sitting down after 7 hours and taking a break. If you want to see what I did, watch the tape.". Just silly shit like that to troll em. I'd have employees tell me that I better not do that because they're watching and MAN could you see the fear on their face when they said it. Like it was their mom and they were 10 years old again. Pisses me off thinking about it.
Ya know what happened from all of that? Not, one, damn, thing. NOTHING was ever said to me again about the camera. Nothing.
I said I'd get to the sanitation, right? Well, it's a hub for a major delivery service. Not uncommon at all to see a packed parking lot with no free pumps from 5-8 PM. Just a bunch of delivery drivers parked behind one another waiting for a pump. Well, a whole bunch of those drivers pee in water bottles for one reason or another and throw them away in the trash cans. They leak, and so do the bins so the "piss-water" drains onto the parking lot night after night after night. And no one cleans it, no one. I'm not even going to get gas there anymore because it's fucking disgusting, and for perspective, I can see the gas station right now looking out my window. That's how close/convenient it is for me.
SO...would YOU change those liners without gloves? No? Well neither would I. And when I started taking gloves from the kitchen I was told, "Those aren't for you." I said, "Well then neither is that trash have fun lol." And ya you read that right. They make food there...
You get the gist. One last thing though, I don't mind work. I never have. I didn't slack off when I was there. It's just not in me. And I have great references, a letter of rec from the CEO of the last company I worked for for grad school (I'm a senior), and I don't mind going above and beyond. One of the people that works there is older and has trouble getting around. She walked to work. So ya, I'd clock out and give her a ride home and tell her to do things like leave the dishes I'll get them etc. And I'm no saint or anything (obviously). I'm just sayin.
I could go on and on, but I won't (I know I know I kinda did lol).
So what's different about me? Nothing, not really. I just have another job. It's all smoke screens and bullshit to keep the employees under their thumb. And nothing more.
What was happening, was people were tired of the shit and they'd call in or quit. I on the other hand knew every night I went in, I could just walk out. So, I never had a problem showing up. I never had a problem doing the job because I don't mind work. I had zero desire to make friends with the manager and her 2 friends that worked there who stared at their phones all day. I just did, not, give a shit...and I was "rewarded" for it, in a way.
Called corporate this morning to quit, they asked me to please stay. It's so strange. I would straight up talk shit about this company, to the customers, while the manager was standing right there...and they asked me to STAY...
TL;DR
I could elaborate on this a little more, but in summary, I'll say these 2 things:
  1. My son is a young teenager and will be looking for part-time work in the next couple years. I'll be explaining this scenario to him and will be telling him to put another job on his application. Anything ie fiverr or just keeping a burner phone on me for a fake reference for him.
And you can say whatever the hell you want. I don't care. I'm going to teach my son that he needs to look out for himself because these employers won't.
2) Thank you workreform. I don't think I would've just rolled over about all this (I've never behaved like this at a job before), but I know I wouldn't have been as confident.
I know this won't help that many people. Some of you are dealing with some really fucked up shit. Sexual harassment, it's your only job, discrimination, etc. BUT, I know there's at least a few people out there who are just easy-going, non-confrontational, and stuck between a rock and a hard place.
All I have to say to you is:
-Please see #1. And...
-KNOW YOUR WORTH. Even if it might not seem like it, YOU, HAVE, WORTH. All you need to do is believe it yourself. Your employer sure knows it I can promise you that.
These companies cannot function without someone doing their job, and they know it. It's all bullshit from greedy control freaks. If this helps just 1 person, then it was worth the hour it took to type.
And again, you kings and queens dealing with that really super messed up nonsense, good luck man. But at least, well, here's a real life story of what it looks like when someone practices what YOU'VE preached ;)
Thank you for that. And my son doesn't know it yet, but he's grateful too. And if you help my son then you have a friend in me by default.
So take care friends!

2023.06.06 19:33 iSolemnlySwear88 Are These Reasons Valid For Going No Contact With Mother?

After years of feeling shamed by my mother (and older sister), receiving very little normal parenting from my mother I finally went no contact, a few months ago. It feels like poor timing, but I honestly can not continue and be a part of her life anymore.
The final straw was about two months ago my mother (she claims she accidentally misdialed her cell phone and did not actually mean to call me- which I don't believe) yet, she decides to continue to tell me she was in the hospital for two weeks. When I questioned if she had been unconsious or so ill that she was unable to contact me sooner, she simply said that she did not want to bother me with the inconvenience and did not want me to come to the hospital to see her and that she had been in contact with both my siblings since day one of her hospitalization.
At this point, since she decided that I was . . . I guess not worth contacting? - or someone she did not want to see in her most vulnerable state of health, or I have concluded that I am so much of an embarrassment to her that she did not want even the doctor and nurses to know I was her daughter.
Not only was this incredibly hurtful but now I feel like the jerk for cutting ties at this particular time. Part of me feels immense guilt for deciding to go no contact now, mostly because she is 84 years old but another part of me also feels like she abandoned me long ago and I just can't take any of it anymore. I have had enough of her manipulative and selfish behavior.
Some context and history- she lives in a different state, about 12 hours away. My brother is living in the same city and manages to care for her in between his alcoholism. My sister lives about 3 hours away and due to an unforgivable selfish action taken by my sister about 16 years ago (which I will not get into as it is an entirely long and complicated history and relationship with her as well) and I have not had any contact with her since the incident. My mother has basically compared me to my oldest sister that left home at the age of 18 and has never been a sister to me, instead most of my life she has been verbally cruel to me. When we were in contact, she would basically talk so poorly about my brother, my life, and even my mother, who favors her. She is my mother's favorite child and my mother has made sure I knew this and basically told me this repeatedly over my lifetime. Now, my mother who is 84 has started speaking of my brother as if he is a wonderful son and repeatedly tells me how proud she is of him. When I explained to her that he is drinking again (I saw him drinking in his car, the last time we came to visit in April of 2022) - she denies this is possible and continues to speak of him highly when she calls me. I think in her mind, with all of the issues he is dealing with and his addiction (which she absolutely played a role in) - he is better than me since he lives closer and can attend to her on a weekly basis and see her. I should mention up until this recent auto accident, which she caused but blames the other driver for- she is like a senior anomaly that is in perfect medical health- more like a 50 year old. Although, the past few years, my husband and I both tried to convince her to give up her car and move to an independent care facility.
My entire family is dysfunctional- my sister acts like she is better than everyone else, my brother has been an alcoholic with 3 DUI's and on drugs and in prison - certainly because of my parents. I can't blame him- his struggle with addiction is due to our family. We do not interact or function in any way like a normal family and most of this is because of my mother.
After a long reflection back on my relationship with my mother, these are the main reasons I can no longer be in her life:
1.) Throughout my early childhood she was unhappy in her 1st marriage (to my biological father) and they fought daily- most times at the dinner table, which has caused me to have an unhealthy relationship with food, little to no trust in others (outside of my husband), and no interest in having children or a family of my own. I have no friends and most of my life has been on my own, until I meet my loving husband.
2.) In my awkward teen years, after her divorce from my father, she completely stopped parenting me and treated me as if I was a burden and an embarrassment. No boundaries, no direction, no advice, and no loving behavior.
3.) She has been consumed with her relationship to her wealthy Catholic high school friends that she has remained in contact with (they have now all passed away) and she has spent her lifetime oddly prioritizing them over her own family. Even the Catholic church was more important to her than her family- I suspect this was more of a wealth and status outward display for her relationship to her friends, rather than it was about faith. She bragged often about her devotion to the church and her volunteering. This has resulted in a lifetime of regret and comparison to their lives. To the point that our family and lower middle-class status was never good enough for her and she never made this a secret. Her unhappiness has essentially been imprinted on all of her children.
4.) She (nor my father) attended my high school graduation or my college graduation- it took me 13 years of putting myself through college to finally obtain my degree.
5.) She thinks my husband is my only saving grace and praises him and speaks highly of him ( yes, I am aware, I love him and this is why I married him. He is a gentle, caring man- who has helped me though much of my dysfunctional family) to the point that she seems to treat him more like the child son she never had and constantly reminds me of what a wonderful man he is and that I should do everything to keep him.
6.) I patiently listened to her complain over the phone for over two decades about her second husband- which she is also ashamed of and seemed to have married for financial stability- which never actually seemed to be the case. He was broke, a terrible human that abandoned his own children. Their marriage seemed to be more like roommates that barely tolerated each other. When he developed a terminal illness- my mother spent the last years of his life taking care of him (very poorly I am sure- in fact I suspect she was unsympathetic, resentful toward him, and harsh) and constantly complained that no one else was there to assist her and that her life was miserable and he was making her life intolerable. Often during these phone calls, I would think to myself- no one is there for you because you were never there for your children. During the pandemic, while I was dealing with the loss of my own business and my own depression, she would call me to complain about all of this- almost on a weekly basis. Rarely asking about my own situation or health. When she would ask, it never seemed genuine. She seemed to be waiting for her husband to pass so she could get some relief and get on with her life- at 84??? He did finally pass away and she propped herself up to be the hero who took such great care of him alone and she was the doting wife and surviving widow. I have no idea but I suspect she never used my sister as a 'punching bag' to unload all of her problems on and complain. So I was the one who took this on weekly for several years.
I could probably list 20 other reasons but this is the bigger picture and I can't continue to state an entire life of her disappointments and lack of love for those closest to her.
Based on what I have stated, does it seem logical to want to move forward without her in the rest of my life?

2023.06.06 19:29 PokePlaysGames Am I the bad guy here?

Little background; I'm Liz/Elizabeth/Lizzie (any of those 3 will work). I'm a 19 year old girlflux trans girl. My senior year of high school, I did start telling people I was transgender, but I never did anything other than start growing out my hair (which I'm still doing) so I sort of just faded back into the closet. My parents don't support me, and actually one time, on my way home therapy, my mom said to me these exact words, "I'll never support you." (My dad, I'm pretty sure would support me if my mom was not in the equation. He just takes my mom's side which I can't hold that against him, but that doesn't mean I'm not mad at him for not supporting me). For a few months, I moved out to try to live on my own. Long story short, my anxiety got so bad, I couldn't get a job. Almost entirely ran out of money, had to move back in with my parents. Now we're at present day:
I've been taking anxiety medicine since the beginning of April, shortly after I turned 19. However, I still don't have a job because of my anxiety. My anxiety is just that bad. Anyway, after I do eventually get a job and move back out, I plan to cut my parents out of my life. They said it themselves, they'll never support. I can't live with that sort of negativity in my life. It's confidence shattering for me (negativity from a random person on the street vs someone who's constantly in my life is a completely different story). I told my mom this in an argument once, and she accused me of using them (this outburst from me came from my bottled up feelings from being dead named and misgendered every f***ing day and it started with another hopeless attempt at getting them to be willing to TRY to support me. As you can see, it went downhill fast). She's not wrong. I am technically using them. But it's not like I'm forcing them to let me stay here. If they didn't want me here, the would've already thrown me out into the street. They've chosen to let me stay here.
I want to add that I'm going to push myself to get a job soon, and hopefully try to get out of here. The hard part is, is I've done the math, accounted for all my expenses and stuff, and I probably wouldn't be able to pay all my bills with a starting wage at Hy-Vee or Fareway (the 2 nearest places for me to work, and I'd need something with either not too much social contact, or something overnight, since that's when I'd work best). Then again, I purposely undershot to be safe. I was thinking though that I should just get a job, and see what happens from there. I would be ideal to be completely independent after I move out, so that my parents don't hold anymore cards over me. I intend to talk to my therapist in my nest session about focusing less on the past and future and more on the present

About Me:
I am a responsible and friendly MSU student who will be moving out due to personal reasons. I understand the importance of finding a compatible sublessee, so I'm looking for a responsible and respectful female roommate who is committed to maintaining a clean and harmonious living environment.

Please note that any subleasing arrangements will be conducted in compliance with the apartment complex's policies and guidelines.

2023.06.06 17:52 joinstemaway Hear from our alumni! My experience at STEM Away has been fruitful, fulfilling, and conducive to my personal growth.

Description: My experience at STEM Away has been fruitful, fulfilling, and conducive to my personal growth. There was just the right amount of great resources for me to independently do good work - whether that be Colin recording a video explaining a concept or if there is a good explanation in one of the forums. More importantly, at no time did the work I put in feel forced. It was the environment with a great mentor which motivated me to put in a lot of late nights and consistent work into my bioinformatics ML project. Overall, everything was clearly well thought out. One thing I absolutely loved was that the structure of the internship was very practical and had efficient allocation of resources. For example, self assessments are a great way of transparently self documenting your work. It was not political at all, and that is a refreshing experience. I can tell STEM is something Debaleena lives and enjoys - and she would spend time to create highlight videos. As for the mentor, I cannot say enough good things about him. I love when I get to talk about ML with somebody who is equally or even more passionate than myself about this content, and the discussions we have only reinforce my conviction for the work that is involved. He has a way of making complex content relatable to many audiences. He was also able to frame his teachings effectively and find salient connections of the material that would only come from somebody who has deeply internalized the content and can recognize the channels of value effectively. I learned a lot from him, found genuine connection in our conversations over the personal experiences/realizations that he shared, and will definitely stay in touch.

2023.06.06 15:51 Meaning-Plenty KUNAN POSHPORA – THE OTHER STORY

This guest post by SHRIMOYEE NANDINI GHOSH is based on two essays about the men and women of Kunan Poshpora, that appeared in the Kashmir Reader dated 1 September 2013, and 13 January 2014.
Beneath the horrors of the mass rape committed by Indian troops in the twin villages that night in February 1991, lies the untold story of systematic torture of men, carried out by the same forces with the precision and deliberation of a planned military operation.
In June 2013, a Public Interest Litigation filed in the Jammu and Kashmir High Court, by fifty Srinagar based women, supported by human rights group Jammu and Kashmir Coalition of Civil society (JKCCS) had resulted in a Magisterial order for the further investigations of the mass and gang rape by Indian army personnel of the women of Kunan, and neighbouring hamlet Poshpora, in Kupwara District of North Kashmir on the night of February 23rd-24th 1991. The police, it appears from the lack of any remotely investigative activities in the villages to have done little if anything, by way of following the court order in the last six months. On 14 September, 2013 they asked for and were granted an additional three months time for further investigations, without notice to the survivors who are legally represented in the case.
However, the closure report, which police had failed to file for twenty – two years, and which had been presented before the Magistrate of Kupwara just weeks before the Public Interest Litigation, in March 2013, had yielded several important previously unavailable official documents. These included a hand drawn police map, a nominal roll of 125 army personnel (including several officers) who were admittedly part of the operation and in Kunan-Poshpora that night, statements from victims, witnesses and army men mentioning specific locations, times and incidents, and the official medical reports of some of the rape victims. JKCCS had decided after some deliberation that if the police did not appear to be doing any investigations, they would themselves, aided by the new documents, attempt to rescue from oblivion the events of that night. Over the last three months, they have been engaged in a process of interviewing villagers, explaining to them what the police papers say, seeking clarifications, and attempting to piece together as coherent a narrative as possible given the constraints of resources, the lapses of memory, the reticence of rage, grief and repeated recounting, and the deaths of crucial witnesses. On 24th August 2013, I accompanied a team of human rights lawyers and researchers from JKCCS to the village of Kunan, on one of their visits. I was told that their interviews with those of the women who wished to speak was almost complete, and the day’s planned interviews were mostly with men from the village. Previous conversations, as well as police statements showed that interrogation centres had been set up in the village during the operation, and witnesses referred to extreme and extensive torture of men, but this was not specifically recorded in the First Information Report, and formed no part of the official list of crimes that occurred that night, which consists of rape, house trespass and illegal confinement.
As in the police documents, Kunan Poshpora has become inscribed as a story of rape in Kashmir’s public memory. But something else also happened that night. A crime so commonplace in that age of cordons and crackdowns that even the men who were its victims, barely thought to mention it, attending instead like the rest of us to the outrage of the raped women. As Ahmad Ameen put it, ‘They let us go home after the crackdown, in the morning at about 9 am.’ [Some men were bleeding; others were barely conscious and had to be carried. One man told us he crawled home on all fours].‘That’s when we realised what had happened. What they had done in every house. Then all hell broke lose.’ Several of the men were somewhat laconic when the interviews began. ‘Joh karte hai, wahi kiya’, Rahim Dar said. ‘They did what they do.’ And indeed they had– with wood, water, electricity–those universal implements for the infliction of finely calibrated pain. JKCCS believes on the basis of preliminary conversations that between hundred to a hundred and twenty men from the two villages were tortured that night. A total of twelve men were interviewed during the course of the day I visited, by three teams of researchers. I think it was after the fourth time I heard mention of medical treatments for sexual dysfunction, that the true irony of the ‘emasculation’ metaphors that are so abundant in talk about the Kunan-Poshpora rapes dawned on me. What I often dismiss as misplaced patriarchal indignation had been repeatedly made flesh that night. ‘Oh! Come on’ I want to say aloud, every time I hear or read the words ‘rape’ ‘our women’ and ‘impotency’ in close proximity–‘It’s NOT about you!’, but this time it was. And it involved wires, needles and a portable DC battery.
A kind of unmooring from the realms of human language has characterised the description of the Kunan Poshpora rapes. District Magistrate S.M Yasin’s report speaks of being unable to put down in ‘black and white’ the acts committed by the ‘beasts’ for instance, and the rape survivors themselves talk of the chaos of a toofaan, of foul smelling shaitaans apparating through their black-outs and disassociated states as they lay in the dark . But, as I listened to the men, ranging in age from 90-year-old Lal Dar (68 at the time of the torture) to 40 year old Manzoor (18 in 1991) their torture seemed to bear a somewhat different relationship to language and the world. What happened to them was nailed to a scaffolding of banal bureaucratic and military terms—interrogation, information, identification, search, cordon, crackdown—and tethered to mundane physical objects and familiar places–-buckets, logs and planks of wood, helmets, torchlights, batteries, wood sheds, barns, streams and trees. As the men spoke I began to picture that night, not as an endless orgy of a horde of rampaging beasts, but as a quiet and efficient military operation, carried out by trained men. Four companies of men from the 4th Rajputana Rifles, 68th Mountain Brigade commanded by a Colonel K.S. Dalal, in fact, as the army itself admits in police statements. Alpha and Delta Companies were deployed in the outer cordon, Bravo and Charlie in the search and interrogation. While teams of ten to twenty soldiers, sometimes headed by an officer who they were heard referring to as ‘Sir’, went on a systematic house to house search, rooting men out of their beds, demanding to be taken immediately to militants or hidden weapons, strip searching them and burying them in the snow, their comrades were otherwise engaged. Most of the commissioned officers were deployed at the ‘interrogation centres’ according to the army. Two kuthars (large barn like outbuildings for storing grain, fodder and cattle) within yards of each other, belonging to Asad Dar and the village numberdar (revenue official) Aziz Shah, and Abli Dar’s home, on the main lane of Kunan’s maze of winding alleys, were quickly commandeered and their lofts or rooms converted into make shift ‘interrogation centers’, while their compounds formed a holding space for the men. All three were provided with the same basic equipment – a bench fashioned out of planks of wood, a large wooden log, a bucket of chilli water, a couple of wires connected to a radio battery forming a crude live-circuit, assorted sticks and ropes, a few chairs, and somewhere to suspend the men from–but adaptations were made according to available resources and geography. For instance, in Asad Dar’s yard through which the village stream ran, repeated dunking in its icy depths formed part of the standard procedure. At two of the compounds, Aziz Shah’s and Abli Dar’s where firewood was stored in the wood-shed a bonfire was lit, around which parka-clad soldiers chatted and drank, and villagers recovered from their water treatments. At Asad Dar’s kuthar a tall, fair and somewhat chubby faced officer sat on a chair before a wireless set, giving orders and flashing his torchlight. Downstairs, in all three yards, men squatted or stood in the snow waiting for their possible turns on the equipment. Occasionally when they went up, they saw a neighbour or brother who was before them in line, slumped on the floor at the head of the stairs. Some like Salim Dar, whose brother was a surrendered militant, paid a visit to two of the three centers. He still walks on crutches as a result.
The village of Kunan has changed in twenty-two years. It is no longer ‘the huddle of thatched and wooden houses’ that journalists described in 1991 (‘Indian Villagers Tell of Mass Rape by Soldiers’, The Independent, March 19, 1991). Buildings have been torn down, and rebuilt in brick, cement and tin. The chashma (natural spring) that emerged from the earth behind Aziz Shah’s kuthar has dried up, and only a muddy depression now marks the spot. Ghulam Afzal walked with us around the hamlet amidst squawking chickens and curious children, pointing out the sights– ‘this is where the Abli Dar’s old kuthar stood, that there- is his new house…this is the wood shed in which I hid, this is the nallah along which Naba ran, this used to all be clear ground then…’ For some reason, seeing those buildings brought home to me an intimation of what it was like to be a man from Kunan-Poshpora on that night, in a way even their words hadn’t.
What was it like, I found myself imagining, to be squatting in your own snowy barn yard, drowning in your tin bucket, broken and blubbering on your hard granary floor, blinded by chillies from your own store? And then all the hypotheticals began, as my mind ran on and on. How did it feel I wondered to hear the sounds coming from the village? Yah Khudaiyo! Yah Khudaiyo! Could you hear them over the sounds of the interrogation? Pakistan, Militants, Samaan, Information, Bol Saala! Could you hear them over the groans of your neighbours? Could you hear them over your own yells? Which was worse–to definitely identify the scream of a loved one, or merely contemplate if it was them, through the fog of your insensibility? What was it like to be told you could leave in the morning, to be given painkillers by the army doctor, (Capt. Dr Shyam Sundar accompanied the unit according to his own police statement), to come home and realise what had seemed so far like a recurring nightmare—another crackdown, agonising but vaguely familiar –had been another kind of visitation altogether? And then, to unable to leave or get help for two days, because of the army siege around the village? To have no family or neighbours to turn to, because everyone you knew, was in precisely the same state as you? What kind of courage did it take to be Abdullah the compounder, from neighbouring Trehgam who snuck into the village using the back route through Chopan Mohalla, to deliver what analgesics and first-aid he could knowing it to be hopelessly inadequate? Or most unimaginably of all, to be Abdul Wani. To return from an over night business trip to Srinagar and find your front door broken, your two sons in bed electrocuted, your wife and three daughters raped, and your family’s barn turned into the village torture chamber? How does one live with such knowledge? And having held one’s peace for twenty two years, how does one begin to tell a stranger with a note book, not about what was done to the women, not about what was done to the never to be named teenaged girls, but what was done to you, to your own aging and scarred body, all those many years ago?
That night is full of other kinds of silences, not as innocent but just as tortured. What can one say of Abdul Ghani, the police constable who was related to several families in the village who accompanied the soldiers on their rounds, and signed a ‘No Objection Certificate’ (NOC) the next morning stating that the villagers had no complaints? He appears in many accounts like some kind of will o’ the wisp with a torch light— relaying messages between houses and family members; accompanying one man back to his home to fetch more firewood, allowing him to peep in through the windows and see his wife on the kitchen floor but not to enter; giving water to a woman with a broken spine; getting locked in a cow shed for remonstrating with soldiers; carrying a cousin home on his back in the morning, weeping as he related what he had witnessed. How do we begin to disentangle the betrayal, the subversion, the unlooked for kindness of it all? Constable Abdul Ghani Dar’s statement of what he heard, saw, and did that night, would have formed a crucial part of the prosecution evidence, if the case ever comes to be tried in a court of law. But ‘unidentified gunmen’ murdered Abdul Ghani in his bed in 1993, pumping thirty bullets into his gut, rendering his words hearsay, and obliterating them from the legal record.
Several other critical eyewitnesses have died in twenty two years, including Sharif-ud-din Sheikh who led the fight to get the police report registered and the case heard in the State Human Rights Commission. Some have died as a result of their rape or torture that night, others from age, bullets or disease. By some estimates from villagers, fifteen of the rape survivors have had hysterectomies. Along the way I lost count of the many other surgeries, unsuccessful treatments, chronic aches, intolerable pains and nameless ailments I heard described. One, however stood out. Lal Dar, whose knee was shattered by a rifle-butt early in the proceedings, and who spent most of the night sprawled in the snow outside his home watching the comings and goings of the men, said that he subsequently had two surgeries, the second to remove his knee cap. He said he could not bend his left leg any longer. He finds it hard to pray.
A Meeting in the Park
Impressions and reflections on meeting the survivors of the mass rape at Kunan Poshpora, at the Sher- e-Kashmir Park in Srinagar on Human Rights Day, 2013
It came as a surprise. I don’t think any one, even amongst the organisers of the event at Sher- e Kashmir Park, on December 10th, had expected that women from the two villages would come. It was assumed that the survivors would be represented by members of the Village Committee, elderly men folk from Kunan and Poshpora, themselves survivors of the mass torture that took place on the night of February 23rd-24th, 1991. But the women had come, almost thirty of them. They had arrived in Srinagar by Matador van, leaving their homes in Kunan and Poshpora at seven in the morning, when the frost was still hard on their windows. I had met some of them before, but it was different seeing them here in Srinagar. I couldn’t remember all their names; their biographies had come detached from their faces. Many of them hugged me.
I remembered S. though, one of the more outspoken survivors I had met— her sharp, twinkly eyes behind thick, black rimmed granny glasses, her wide smile full of crooked teeth, in a face wrinkled and brown like a walnut. We had met at Kunan, in August 2013, when I accompanied a legal research team, from Jammu and Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society (JKCCS) who was representing them in their recently renewed litigation against the Indian army. She had spoken fiercely about the injustice of it all; the many outrages that she read about everyday in the papers, her desire to see such criminals behind bars for life. Her anger was loud and visceral. But when it came to the actual events of that night, she had refused to answer any questions. She had a terrible headache, she said. She could not wait, she had blood pressure, she was dizzy—she had to leave, she always felt like this when she thought of that night, she would not talk to us anymore. It was the only interview that had to be abandoned half way. Today, she was complaining about the long journey, ‘bumping-bumping-bumping all the way.’ ‘We should have come by Sumo’, she grumbled. But, it seemed to me that despite this, she couldn’t quite mask her delight at being out in the sunshine. In the open, amidst the falling leaves, outside the shadows of their men folk, their kitchens, their village, the women grew garrulous. S. told me of her daughters, one married to a doctor, the other working at the Social Welfare Department. At one point, Gul Fatima, from the Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons, wife to a disappeared man, came over to the group of Kunan Poshpora’s women. ‘Where are you from?’ she asked them. ‘From Kupwara’ S. replied, naming the district. Then, a shadow seemed to cross her face. ‘Kunan – Poshpora’ she said. We’re here from Kunan Poshpora.’
Many of the women from Kunan Poshpora, did not wish to be photographed. The cameras made them uneasy. Some of their children, and grand children they said, did not know their stories. They huddled together and covered their faces with scarves, but the photographers persisted. It felt undignified– cringing behind shawls, cowering under ‘We Demand Justice for Kunan Poshpora’ posters, being asked to join the circle and sit in the appropriate place like an errant schoolgirl, when one had wandered away to avoid the cameras. In 2004, Manipuri women activists protesting the rape and killing of Thangjam Manorama had shocked us by their dramatic inversion of the figure of the cowering and shamed raped woman. Stark naked, they had stood in front of the Assam Rifles Base at Imphal, holding a banner that read ‘Indian Army Rape Us’. The photograph had made headlines across the world. I thought of it as I pleaded with a particularly intrusive photographer on behalf of the women to ‘please respect their privacy’. At this, he turned around and asked me, ‘Why have they been asked to come here, then?’ .I didn’t really have a good answer. It is true. We do need them. We want to have their pictures. We want to put faces to their tragedies, to commemorate their losses and violations. We need them to remind us that we remember, that we have not lost the battle against forgetting yet.
After I got home, the women of Kunan Poshpora, and their attitude to the news-cameras, made me think of a question. Would the agitations against the Shopian rapes in 2009, have been so angry, so volatile, so strong, if Asiya and Neelofar had lived? If they had survived, would we have heard of them at all? And if we had, what particular stories would we hear? Perhaps their rapes would have been covered up, as so many have been in the villages of Kunan and Poshpora, in the name of marriages, families, reputations, futures, for the sake of preserving innocence. A raped dead body makes for an uncomplicated heroine– worthy of both victimhood, and martyrdom. But a living rape survivor is a different being altogether. Her speech and her silences are more fraught. The women of Kunan Poshpora have been voices, not victims through these twenty three years. They have spoken back to the forces of occupation, before media crews, independent fact finders, the police, the state human rights commission and the courts of law. But, they constantly remind us– by covering up before our cameras, by getting dizzy, by blanking out, by her reticence before our questions, that we are all incriminated in her secret yet public shame.

2023.06.06 15:49 thephogisreal DAE see the opinion of "no civilian needs a gun" as someone showing their extreme privilege? Also: rant

The more I hear it, the more pissed I get that their life has been so protected and sheltered that they don't even need to think about being their own first responder.
Literally had a guy chokeslam his autistic kid in the street yesterday and I found the kid after the father went back in his home. Figured I was in some amount of danger just by hanging out with the kid trying to keep him from jumping into traffic.
My life is pretty privileged. I paid alot extra to get into the privileged area of town (best school district in town and I got a kid now and the republicans country wide school board coup wasn't successful in this district so he'll still learn all the witchcraft that is math and science).
1 month in we heard automatic gunfire. (Glock switch used by a minor on a minor in a drive-by at the park we walk out stroller at).
We regularly have cops on our dead end street that has only 15 houses.
Armed republicans knocked on doors in the area doing that vote audit shit after trump lost.
Ok, yea. Republicans have had their way with my city and made income inequality, and shelter and food insecurity the key sources of their wealth.
Buuuuut
The nearest Walgreens had a 17 year old girl employee stabbed 42 times by her 28-year old incel coworker in the breakroom (yea unrequited obsession).
My coworker lived near silicon valley. Campbell CA. His city hadn't had a homicide in 4 years. While walking home with icees from the neighborhood 7-11, shot dead by a hs senior 8 months from going into the military after an argument. (I guess he loved guns so much he couldn't wait for his career of using them to start, so he started illegally carrying his Daddys gun in the car even though he lives in one of the least homicidal towns in America).
This has all happened since Sept 2021.
Forget the first 13 years of my adult life which have even more justifications per year because I couldn't afford the privileged area of town. Just the last 1.75 years alone.

2023.06.06 15:19 HooliGan1420 21M - I bid thee a humble welcome into my very straightforward but amazingly long post. Feel free to explore, laugh and be charmed if you may ^^

Halloha, my name's Gianluca. Nice to meet you!- is what I would say in a formal setting.
But hence you found me in my area of comfort, welcome to my humble abode. Would you like some tea? Maybe you fancy some Earl Grey.
Anyway anyway I'm starting to babble lol, if you're wondering what I'm here for, it's for talking to you, interesting person out there wherever may you be. Meeting new people and all it brings is something I love. Making friends this way is amazing so therefore I presented myself!
If details are something you're into hearing, i can give you lots:
-I have to refuel every day almost cuz I go through an entire tank in 2 days or less. Love driving around. (Had to get new shoes and take up running to reduce expenses)
-I'm a car mechanic, also a construction worker, carpenter and if patience blesses me on that day; a painter.
-What am I saving up for? Well it's big, pretty massive in fact. So massive i could write an entire letter about it... Huh... Would it be cheeky if I said you can ask about this in your message? Would be a good idea.
-Had to start running everywhere for transport which is fun, I also do cycling, practice jumps and tricks at the bike park and do motorcycle and karting races. (Other categories and car racing are a work in progress, will upgrade soon)
-Music taste: this is the part where you look at a bunch of hyperbabble about bands that don't make a lot of sense unless you heard them, but I'll just throw a buncha names and you can see if any of the following applies: Radiohead, Megadeth, Fishmans, Marillion, The Black Keys, Queens of The Stone Age, Buckethead, Alphaville, Dire Straits, Little River Band, David Bowie, XTC, UB40, Commodores, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Cure.
-Ultramegahyper car and motorcycles fan, but in the weirdest way possible. My dream cars are actually cheap french hot hatches like the 306 and a 90's Renault Clio. The car I'd get first no matter what is a 1998 Ford Focus. If possible the RS version. And as for motorcycles I want a Kawasaki ZXR, 80's style. Also love German cars, especially old BMW's, first one I'd get is an e32 with the M70 V12 engine. Also love old Volkswagens and Audis, without a doubt would own an 80's Audi with one of their 5 cylinder engines and turbocharge it. Also very fond of japanese cars and will own a Nissan in any form possible, especially the 350z
-Played almost every Need For Speed game that ever released, started my journey with the franchise through Underground, and played every release as they launched. (yes even Undercover, I actually enjoyed it). I listen to the soundtracks of old NFS games in my free time. Also played Midnight Club, Forza, Assetto Corsa, FlatOut, Burnout, BeamNG... I COULD KEEP GOING.
-Not everything in my life is about cars though, my day is dedicated to music too, especially playing piano. I'm also a guitar and bass player. And really want to get more sound gear and instruments in the future (Cars and music gear? I'll be broke all the time)
-I'm relatively organized, but living by myself has shown me that being the only person inside the house, I leave stuff around unless somebody visits. But while living with my parents I didn't make any mess anywhere so I'm not an absolute demon.
-Yes, living by myself also requires me to cook and I'm actually an amazing cook. I include lots of seasoning and veggies into the meals, even soy to balance things out and eggs for protein. Learned lots while being independent.
-Fun facts about me to end this: The amount of clothes I have in total is so small that i can wash them all in one washing machine load, the house machine size. I also have 3 different pillows around me at all times cuz I don't like laying on a flat surface. I listen to music even while showering. And I own a dog that requires me to feed her on a daily basis even though I beg her to feed off the sun.
Anyways that's about it from me! Hope you enjoyed this lil introduction that is the size of the Twilight prologue, but way better.
