Ask @poetalunam:

Has the ॐ brought you any inner peace?

symbols don't bring out inner peace. your own mentality and perspectives do.
the tattoo is moreso symbolism than anything else -- my best friend and i both got om tattoos the same day because we've been each other's serenity during the difficult times of our lives. we also got the tattoos during a time when i was very spiritual, and unfortunately i've distanced from that spiritual nature since then.

What's something that bothers you that doesn't bother other people quite as much?

°•Donovan•°
i'm not entirely sure. i don't get bothered by much, and the things that *do* bother me aren't unusual or not shared by plenty of other people.
i think what bothers me the most, though, is blatant dishonesty. people who lie either for the sake of lying or they lie through their teeth despite everyone else knowing the truth. there's one person i know who lies constantly just to stay on everyone's "good side" and it's ridiculous because i know it's going to bite them in the ass one day.

What's your opinion on mixed gender open plan shower and locker rooms?

i think it depends on where they're located and the age of the people using them (i.e. whether they're adults only or children can enter them too).
there are places, like saunas, in europe where the changing rooms are mixed gender, which makes sense considering how people use saunas, lol. but those are reserved for adults, so that's perfectly fine. everyone knows what the human body looks like.
i think it's different when children are involved because you don't want strangers seeing them in that context, so it would make more sense accompanying them to the room that corresponds with their sex.

Has anyone else noticed that Ask keeps adding features associated with coins (apparently you can now give them to people?) yet hasn't told us what we can use the coins for? Do you have any guesses as to what we'll be able to use our coins for? Any guesses as to what features Ask might add next?

half bread theory;
yeah, they recently added the option to give coins to specific answers now -- which is great and all, but we *still* don't know what the hell the coins even mean, lol.
i can only assume askfm will allow us to trade in coins for things like premium moods, theme colors, etc etc.

I understand that. I don't answer everything I get sent at all and I just delete it if i can't so as to not bother the sender. Nobody has an answer for everything and I just like to learn from what people do have answers for and make them think.😊💚

i agree !! my reasoning is also a bit selfish too because i would hate myself if my own page was filled with answers like "idk" or simply "no," LOL. i like my page to be relatively interesting with at least some substance in each answer.

Should we love racists? Do people of other beliefs need a "cure"? What's your opinion?”

Danny’s question about the Kardashian made me think of this question, what about people on ask who are blatantly racist/transphobic etc, should we love them or engage with them whether by liking their answers or sending them spams?

this is an interesting question !! i think it depends entirely on the individual who's sending questions out and what they value when they do spams.
(in fact, this question may be better geared toward someone who does send out spams.)
personally speaking, i wouldn't feel comfortable sending questions out to someone who's openly transphobic, racist, sexist, homophobic, etc etc. i would feel as if i'm endorsing those qualities about that person and it wouldn't sit right with me.

*you're welcome. Sorry, I'm trying to get out of the havit of saying "ofc".😂

King Fink

Of course! I haven't sent out many questions lately, since the spiritual spam and not everyone is spiritual so I thought I'd send out something more political to make people think and voice their opinions.😊

King Fink
i always enjoy your questions regardless of what the topic is, lol. although i may not have answers to everything, which is why i wind up deleting some and answering others.

It was in her story. She referred to gay people, addicts, the homeless, Muslims etc. too. As if they're all in need of a "cure". Here's a link https://amp.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2019/mar/18/khloe-kardashian-says-we-should-show-love-to-racists-but-why-coddle-them

that article was brilliantly worded -- thank you for sharing !!

qotd: do you think it's vital to be friends with someone before being in a romantic relationship with them?

˗ˏˋ ввyɢαl ˎˊ˗
i don't think it's vital, but i think it can be important to some relationships. i was friends with all of my partners prior to getting into relationships with them, so i really don't know what it feels like to be with someone without having that platonic relationship as a foundation, though.
like most other relationship values, it depends entirely on the individual. some people want to be friends beforehand, other people don't really care.
