I feel like there's two different pressures acting on gay and bisexual guys-"hyper-masculinity" and "hyper-femininity", and it's tearing me apart.

2020.10.20 20:51 84jtfj I feel like there's two different pressures acting on gay and bisexual guys-"hyper-masculinity" and "hyper-femininity", and it's tearing me apart.

Explanation/tl;dr: I'm a cis masculine bi guy, and I feel like most gay and bisexual men have societal and cultural pressure put upon them at the same time to fit in to a "hyper-masculine" or "hyper-feminine" way of acting/presenting themsleves, and the competing cultural forces can cause men significant problems in their mental and physical health. I'll explain in a bit more detail below.
By "hyper-masculine", I'm referring to the idealisation of traditionally masculine body types and professions in the gay community. Take for example the constant pictures of gay models/pornstars/influencers etc. who have chiseled abs and bodies like a Men's Health cover model or a greek statue, or how much gay imagery centers on more "masculine" archetypes (like the Village people or a Tom of Finland drawing).
Gay and bi men can feel enormous pressure to look like this perfect body-type, because a lot of gay media puts these guys front and center - from social media to pornography - or in dumbed down language "Wanna fuck guys? Look like this", which leads to men doing dangerous things to their bodies to achieve these goals, like heavily working out, developing eating/body dismorphic disorders, fixing "flaws" with plastic surgery, or getting hooked on drugs and partying.
This idealised masculine image hurts feminine and androgynous men, who are often already excluded for their sexuality aand breaking gender norms, and also more masculine men who may feel like they have to conform to these gender norms to "compensate" for their sexuality.
On the flip side the stereotypes of all gay men being effeminate can do significant damage as well. For feminine men because they face violence for being the way they are, and risk being reduced to this one particular facet of their identity when they're so much more, and for more masculine men who may feel like they're "not allowed" to be gay or will not be believed about their sexuality by openly LGBT+ people because they're not effeminate, alongside violence from straight people who assume that they're secretly feminine (or could/must be) because of their sexuality. Couple this with the prevalent attitudes of "men are trash" (that came up in a post on here recently) and the stereotype of the LGBT+ community being full of man/masculinity-hating-sjw types that can further entrench the idea that feminine = untouchably perfect and masculine as "literally satan."
As a bi guy trying to make sense of my place in the world, I feel torn between these two ideals, with one side demanding that I'm a greek statue who somehow has time to balance a traditionally bloke-y blue collar or professional job with living in the gym 24/7 and being a party animal, while the other side wants me to be the sassy gay best friend stereotype, who's neck deep in ru-paul gossip or fighting the good fight on the gender studies front line. At times it can really affect my self-image, and and the way that the different ideals are emphasised by competing media sources (traditional and social) can leave you feeling stuck between a rock and a hard place, while in real life most people wouldn't give a toss how you identify/present yourself.
I feel like there's little space for being "boring" or (for real lack/want of a better term) "normal" in gay or bi spaces, like you have to fit in to these moulds or risk being a gay pariah, as if you can't live in a small regional town or suburbia and come home from your shitty retail/office job to just sit on the couch and watch netflix all night. No, you have to be one of these stereotypes living in the cool big cities living an acceptable, marketable lifestyle.
I know trans men face similar issues with their gender identity and presentation, but I'll leave it up to a trans guy to elaborate on that in the comments because I don't want to talk for you.
So, what do you all think about this? Have you (or someone you know) experienced something like this, and what do you think we can do to try and stop this "identity war" that happens within gay and bi guys?

2020.10.19 10:01 csm133 A guide to insurance in Singapore

Insurance can be complex, in my Starting Guide, I touched on Hospitalisation Insurance in the form of Integrated Shield Plans and on Life/TPD insurance. Here I will go into more detail about insurance.
The purpose of insurance is to ensure that money is not a problem during illness/injury/disability and the recovery process. It is especially important if a person is the sole breadwinner, they have major financial obligations (home loans etc) or dependents
If you feel like there's anything that's missing, please feel free to add on in the comments
 
How much should I spend on Insurance each month?
A rough estimate is no more than 10% of one's monthly take home pay. But depending one's circumstances it might go as low as 3% or more than 10%
 
Full Disclosure: I am not an Insurance agent/professional, this is a a guide and one should always do their own diligence before making any financial decision and consult a trusted professional
Useful Resources:
 
** From most to least important **
 

1. Hospitalisation Insurance (Integrated Shield Plans)

Hospitalisation insurance help to cover the cost of medical bills in the event of injury/illness with hospital admission.
This can range from hospitalisation fees to dialysis to surgery
By default, every Singaporean is covered under Medishield Life, it will cover any pre-existing conditions, with premiums paid out of one's CPF Medical Account
The limitation is that it will only cover stays in B2/C class ward
This means
So if one wishes to stay in B1 (aircon), A (personal room) or Private hospitals, one would need a ISP.
A quick breakdown of Ward classes (Varies by hospital SGH, TTSH and NUH )
  1. Private Hospital: Self explanatory, main advantage is that you get to stay at Private hospitals, getting to choose your doctor and usually lead to shorter waiting time for non-urgent illnesses.
  2. Class A: Private Room/ 2 to a room , choose your own doctors, but only at Government hospitals (SGH, NUH TTSH etc) has the least subsidies among all Gov classes
  3. Class B1: 4-5 to a cubicle, aircon, toilet within cubicle, some subsidies
  4. Class B2: 5-6 to a cubicle, no aircon, more subsidies
  5. Class C: 6-8 to a cubicle, common toilet shared among all staff, most subsidies
Rest assured, regardless of ward class, one will definitely get treatment if they need it urgently (Car accident, chemo, emergency surgery)
Which class to choose should get solely depends on how much one wants to pay and what environment they want to stay in during their admission.
ISPs are provided by various insurance companies in Singapore and will help to cover the costs for stays in B1 wards and above.
Thus, one should look into getting an ISP if they wish to stay in a B1 ward or above
 
Costs of ISPs
The best thing about ISPs is that their premiums can be paid using CPF's MediSave up to the Annual Withdrawal Limit
For those under 41, that would be $300
Thankfully, even Private hospital ISPs cost just over or under $300 (Look at Gold Shield Max A on brochure pg 13) for those 35 and below.
This means minimal to no out of pocket costs for ISPs, meaning there is really no reason not to get one
 
Riders
There is also the option to get a rider (an add-on) for your ISP
A common rider is one that limits the co-payment for the policy to 5/10%, usually to $3000 per policy year. This means that no matter how high the medical bill, one would not pay any more than $3000 per policy year, including deductibles, co-payment and co-insurance.
These riders go by different names between insurance companies
The only downside is that the premiums for these riders must be paid out of pocket, for those between 31-40, it will probably be between $200-$500 depending on your ISP (Brochure page 14, VitaHealth Annual Premiums)
I chose to use AIA MaxShield Gold with the VitaHealth Rider as an example as I am most familiar with it, please look through the plans available to see which one is best for you
 
Which ISP to choose?
Choose the ISP provided the most coverage for the, for the longest duration at the lowest cost.
 
Why buy one now?
ISPs may not cover any pre-existing conditions, so it is better to get one before one develops any illnesses and risk it not being covered by ISPs
 
Coverage gap
However, ISPs offer no cash payout in the event of death or disability. They only limit your medical bills. thats where life insurance comes in
 

2. Life/Total Permanent Disability/Critical Illness Insurance

These 3 types of insurance are usually bundled together, hence I am covering them together.
Life/TPD/CI insurance offers a lump sum payout in specific circumstances. This lump sum would allow obligations like debts, day-to-day expenses of dependents and additional expenses not covered by hospitalisation insurance.
 
The exact definitions of each of these conditions vary between insurance companies (e.g Tokio Marine, FWD, ManuLife) but generally
Life: Upon death or diagnosis of a terminal illness that will lead to death in 12 months by a specialist
TPD: Unable to perform any occupation or engage in daily activities (transferring, mobility, toileting, dressing, washing and feeding) without assistance after 6 months of initial diagnosis
Critical Illness: As per the definitions by LIA, these are genrally End Stage with low chance of long term survival
 
Term Vs Whole?
I'm going to copy and paste my explanation from the Starting Guide to FI
Term: Think of this as a subscription service like Spotify or Netflix, where for as long as one pays the fees (premiums) one will be covered by the insurance policy, usually cheaper than Whole Life
Whole Life: Whole life plans are more complicated. The general idea is that one puts in money into the plan until they hit a certain amount and the money there will be used to cover them in the event of death/TPD at a multiplier. They are more expensive than Term Life plan and they usually offer the ability to draw money from the plan and a projected interest rate of 3.75% to 4.75%
Usually Term is recommended in FI circles as
  1. It's cheaper, leaving more money available for investments
  2. Even an average year in most index beats the projected 3.75% - 4.75% it's simpler
  3. For reference while these plans like to boast their projected 3.75%-4.75%, CPF offers guaranteed 3.5%-5% on your first 60K depending on whether it's your OA, SA or MA
FirePathLion has a post about this topic as well
 
TPD: A fate worse than death
One might argue that "My dependents and I have no uncontrolled debts and an emergency fund, I don't need life/TPD insurance"
I once thought that too, but as a healthcare worker, I can safely say that TPD is much worse than death.
Upon death, there is a loss in income but financially, that's it.
For TPD it's much worse. The individual not only does not bring in income, but will incur additional expense in terms of assistive medical devices, medicine, additional care by domestic helpers, private nurses or admission to a nursing home. Family members may need to care for them, maybe even full time.
And if one has children who are unable to work and plan to attend University in the future, the ability to afford it becomes uncertain, if there are outstanding home loans it gets worse, not to mention if one has elderly parents to support
This is the worst case scenario and why I feel TPD is so essential.
Even if one is single with no dependents, TPD coverage will not burden the spokesperson and will give them options to take care of them.
 
How much coverage?
A very rough estimate would be 10 times one's annual expenses. For more detailed calculations there are various calculators available by CPF and LIA that take into account liabilities, dependents and other details.
It is recommended to consult a trusted Financial Advisor for advice.
 
Which one to choose?
CompareFirst provides a comprehensive list of Life insurance products based on age, gender, coverage term and sum assured.
From there, go for the plan that provides what you required at the best price. Look for a policy around this price either by approaching a financial advisor from that company or a trusted independent financial advisor
 
Why buy one now?
Unlike the premiums for ISPs, which increase as one ages, the premiums for Term life plans remain fixed at the price quoted when signed with lower premiums for younger sign ups without pre-existing conditions. Thus to lock in low premiums for life, sign up early.
 
Coverage gap
However. Life/TPD/CI insurance only provides a payout upon death, TPD or late stage/terminal illness.. If one is injured/disabled and unable to work it will provide no payout or long term support. This is where DII comes in
 

3. Disability Income Insurance

This is the form of insurance I am most unfamiliar with, any pointers would be much appreciated, please take this section with a pinch of salt
Definition: Disability Income Insurance provides a constant stream of funds in the event of a condition that leaves the insured unable to work for a period of time (Usually 2 years). After which, if the individual is only able to carry out a job that has a salary that is less than their previous job, it will supplement their income if they are unable to perform 2-3 Activities of Daily Living
 
I feel that there are 2 individuals who benefit the most from this
1 . Young Adults early in their careers
2 . Individuals who have obligations
 
Which to choose?
So far I have found plans by Aviva (Mindef Group Plan) (in conjunction with Mindef Aviva plans), Aviva (Personal Plan), Great Eastern and AIA
From what I see, one should choose a plan based on these these factors
  1. Barriers to claims
    • In this case,AIA requires 2 ADLs imapired Vs Aviva Personal's 3 ADLs
    • I am leaning to AIA, as a one losing Mobility is also likely to lose Transferring, but to lose Toileting, Washing, Dressing or Feeding on top of that is unlikely.
    • However, Aviva Mindef does not seem to require any ADL impairment
  2. Coverage
    • both AIA and Aviva Personal provide up 75% of previous basic salary
    • Aviva Mindef provides up 50% of previous basic salary
  3. Cost (Assuming age 25)
    • ~$200 Annually for Aviva's Mindef Plan
    • ~$500 for AIA and Aviva Personal Plan
Coverage Gap
DII only pays out on the physical inability to do work and ,after a period of time, the inability to perform 2/3 ADLs. If one is looking for a lump sum payout upon that does not depend on their inability to work, ECI would be useful for them
 

4. Early Critical Illness

 
Early Critical Illness provides a payout upon the diagnosis of early stages of Critical Illness. As compared to the CI which is bundled with Life insurance which usually covers about 37 illnesses, ECI covers up to 106, mostly earlier, less severe versions of the 37 CIs.
Thus this would provide a payout when the CI bundled with Life Insurance would not.
These illnesses may not be as serious as late stage CI, but one would probably require an extended amount of time to recover, during which one may not be able to work at their previous capacity and yet again occur additional expenses. In these cases a lump sum payout could be useful so they have the option not to work and yet pay any additional bills.
This would at best push back FI between a few years, a decade or readjust FI expectations, at worst if one has dependents and obligations it may force one to choose between going to work or radically adjusting future plans and the lifestyle they are used to.
Not as world ending as TPD but still not great
 
Single payout Vs Multi-payout?
Singe payout ECI: Upon diagnosis of an ECI, makes a single payout and terminates the plan
Multi-payout: Able to make Multiple payouts, either as the initial ECI progresses or as new CIs develop as per the terms of the CI
FirePathLion has a post that covers ECI and particularly Single Vs Multi-payout ECI plans
Personally, given that cost-benefit is similar between a larger single-pay and smaller mult-pay ECI, I prefer Multi-pay.
This is due to my experience as a healthcare worker, where I see illness progress and worsen (thereby meeting the requirements for a second payout) and lead to other CIs (another payout under a different illness).
Various Multi-pay plans have different payout structures and have different terms and criteria. (Tokio Marine, Aviva and ManuLife for example )
Which one is optimal would entirely depend on how one's illness develops and what other conditions it causes, which is impossible to know at this point of time.
If one only develops a single ECI, diagnoses it early, treats it properly and never gets another ECI, a single payout would definitely be more valuable.
Alternatively, if one can accumulate more money than through investing the difference between plans that will be more optimal. But if the ECI comes too soon and too close together it won't work out.
 
Should I buy it?
However for those with a family history of illnesses, it's probably worth it to get at least some form of ECI.
Otherwise, it generally comes down to one's risk appetite and one's budget for insurance. ECI is more expensive than Hospitalisation,Lifeor DII Insurance, so one should definitely make sure they can afford it, no point in slowing down the accumulation of a more liquid and flexible emergency fund to purchase a, while useful, niche tool.
 
How much coverage?
A rough estimate would be about 3 years worth of income
 
 

5. Personal Accident (*Good to have)

Full disclosure: I will be using Aviva's Mindef Group Personal Accident as for reference as I have its product summary
Personal Accident provides a cash payout upon injury, disability or death. They may also cover the costs of mobility aids, home accessibility renovations services and rehabilitation costs
What do PAs cover do that other plans do not?
Costs
Based on NTUC's PA it could cost between $150-$450 annually
However, Aviva's Mindef Group Personal Accident can cost as little between $12-$72 per year
 
Who should buy it?
For most people who don't really engage in risky activities (Rock climbing, extreme sports etc) or work in high risk areas (heavy machinery, policemen, NS regulars) getting a personal PA plans isn't really necessary.
However, at the price of Aviva's Mindef Group Personal Accident, it might just be worth picking it up to round up one's insurance coverage
 

I still have my NS Aviva Group Term Plans, should I keep them?

For the younger ones, Group Term Life isn't very expensive, but it is likely that one can find a plan for cheaper on CompareFirst, same goes for the CI rider.
For those older and strapped for cash/ who have pre-existing conditions it might be worth it to hold onto, it depends on a case by case basis.
The Group Personal Accident, as mentioned, is pretty good and cheap so it's good to hold on to
 

Thought experiment: Most basic, essential insurance set-up

 
I though of this insurance set-up for fun, trying to come up with a Basic Broka-ass B**ch BuildTM for young individuals looking for core coverage with minimal out-of-pocket expense for a few years until they are more financially stable, for those who are truly unable to afford complete coverage while covering the worst case scenario (TPD/Disability from cawork accident etc) and most common occurrence (physical injuries) for this age group
Assuming 25 y.o Male, Non-smoker, risky occupation (delivering GrabFood/manual labor etc)
Insurance Plan Out-of-Pocket Cost Rationale
ISP B1 plan+Rider $150 ISP paid with MediSave/ Caps yearly Hospitalisation Fees at $3000 with rider
Life (1-5 year cover) 500K+ CI $175 Protects against TPD/ Risk of CI is low at this age
ECI Nil - Being young risk of CI is low
DII Midef Aviva DII $200 While risk of most CI is low, the leading causes of hospitalisation are Accident, Poisoning and Violence, and does not require specific ADL impairment
Personal Accident Mindef Aviva Group PA ($600K) $72 Covers physical injuries and physical impairments/ leading causes of hospitalisation are Accident, Poisoning and Violence
 
Total Annual Premiums: $597 Monthly Premium costs: $49.75
 
Once again I'd greatly appreciate letting me know if there are things I missed out

Hello,
I am making this post to look for the next chapter of my career. I have been working at AWS for the last 4 years, after having left a System Administration role in another life. I am currently based out of Seattle, where I have been working remotely since the start of COVID. My current work consists of supporting CI/CD pipelines as well as dealing with a large linux fleet.
I feel that I have grown tremendously and have refined my principles while working at AWS. I am data driven, a curious hands-on learner, and I have provided world class technical support to some of the largest companies in the world. I have a knack for identifying good user experiences and making the most of what's available. I greatly enjoy collaborating and working alongside ambitious, creative, and clever teammates.
Ideally I'd like to be working for a company or project that has a mission to help improve the environment by helping eliminate plastic waste and helping prolong the life of our natural ecosystems.
I'm comfortable with Macs, Linux, and Windows. I've most recently gotten into Flutter development for designing mobile apps on Android and iPhones and found it to be interesting.
It's satisfying for me to take a complex topic and break it down into digestible pieces for others to understand. I enjoyed giving in person monthly classroom trainings about S3 to new hires and creating new training curriculums for 15-25 employee cohorts.
Skillsets:
Interests:
I'd prefer to work remotely, eventually moving to California where I can work in an office with coworkers once it's safe to do so.

2020.10.17 08:27 Tristan3461 22 [M4F] Nerdy Guy Looking for a Nerdy Girl to be Player 2

Hey! If you got through that awful title and are still interested, then, honestly, awesome! Here is a little about myself:
I am a fairly average white guy in the Missouri area, in college to get a creative writing degree (it's my fourth year, but it's shaping up to seen like I'm gonna need five years, oh bother). This is definitely one of the core factors of my person. I am a writer. Not a prize winning one (though it's definitely a goal!), but a competent one. I absolutely love consuming any kind of stories. Movie's, TV series, video games, books, short stories, comics, all of them. By extension, I love debating the stories I read, watch, or play through with friends, and would love if my player 2 (jeez, that joke is even worse the second time) enjoyed that too, or at least would be willing to put up with that. Outside of that other things I love to do are:
-Play ps4 video games with friends (I personally love playing video games with other people and would be more than happy to talk with people over the ps4 voice chat). The multiplayer games I'm into include DbD, Red Dead Online, Predator: Hunting Grounds (yeah, that game is still alive somehow), and Zombie Army 4. I have plenty of other multiplayer games, so feel free to ask about any specific ones!
- Play D&D (it's a cooperative form of writing and I absolutely LOVE it)
- Watch movies/netflix with friends (horror movies are my favorite, and my current favorite Netflix series may or may not be the Netflix She-Ra remake)
- Walk around town while listening to music (metal, synthwave, and video game soundtracks are my favorite)
- Talk to people (I'm not super good with small talk, and can maybe come off as a little awkward at times, but I absolutely love having one on one conversations with people about things we both care about).
I am not a social butterfly, but I do have a fair amount of in person friends, so I must be at least somewhat pleasant to be around, but I won't deny, I am shy. I've been working on getting over it, and have been trying to find that special someone I could bond with. However, it's come to my notice that most likely the kind of girl I would like to be around might also be suffering through the same feelings of awkwardness that I am, so I thought this would be the best place to try.
Outside of that, it probably is important to mention that I've never been in a relationship. I just never have really been serious about it in my life until now (and regret turning down prior chances I have had in the past).
My physical description is pretty generic. I have an average looking face (I think it's a little ugly, but everyone always says that I'm just being an idiot and that I'm either average or a little above average, so go figure), I am around 5 foot 10 to 5 foot 11 (sorry, no mystical 6 feet here), weigh around 160 pounds, and usually wear a hat over my shaved head, though when it gets longer it is brown and curly. I try and keep myself well groomed and clean, and I apologize if I look a little scruffy.
Here is a picture of my ugly mug to scare you away: https://imgur.com/a/vCiA2No
If all that hasn't made you think that I'm a total dork yet (or you are ok with total dorks) then please, feel free to send a message! Regardless of if you do or don't, please have a good day!

2020.10.16 15:41 SissyLisaLusty T4A, pansexual MtF trans looking for FWB

Please PM me, do not use chat
Pics in my post history, or my FetLife account, ask for the username.
Me:
I am a 42-year-old poly & pan transwoman looking for a FWB (or more). Looking for more than just sex, let us share food, drink, chat, Netflix+chill, cuddling, and going out on traditional dates. I am interested in exploring kink, particularly bondage, and I have interest in most of the stereotypical trappings of the sissy fetish. I have nerdy interests - computers, PC gaming. Work in tech. Like to drink socially. 420 is fine. Get tested every 6 months for bugs, and I am on PrEP. I am about 9 months into transition, so while I have come far, I still have a ways to go with assuming my new identity... HRT slowly doing its thing & some cosmetic surgeries are scheduled. Live near Capitol Hill.
You:
I do not care about your race, gender expression, or parts, just meet the preferences above. If you are a cis male, better if you are my age or older (being mommy is not on my fetish list, but being with daddy is, lol).
First date will be at a restaurant.
Free Saturday!
If this is up, I am still looking.

2020.10.15 02:16 insane677 Who's the fool who decided to put this on Peacock?

You have two options:
1, Netflix. An overall well regarded streaming service (especially in terms of animation) that is used by a large percentage of viewers, and that your previous show had massive success on?
Or 2, Peacock: A new streaming service that barely anyone has or has heard off, and is only avalibe in one country, for one cable package?
What jackass chose number 2?
CiS would be so much bigger if it were on Netflix (or hell, even CN or Nick) and this subreddit would have more than 83 members.

Quote from /STD - it applies to /HPV either:
The sub is intended to help calm the anxiety that comes with a potential STD infection through education, awareness, and prevention techniques. If you have concerns about your health, please seek a health care provider to address the concerns you have. No subreddit's contents can replace actual medical care from a physician.
1. INTRODUCTION
As CDC says:
HPV infections are so common that nearly all men and women will get at least one type of HPV at some point in their lives. Most people never know that they have been infected and may give HPV to a sex partner without knowing it. Nearly 80 million Americans are currently infected with some type of HPV. About 14 million people in the United States become newly infected each year.
Most people with HPV never develop symptoms or health problems. Most HPV infections (9 out of 10) go away by themselves within two years. But, sometimes, HPV infections will last longer, and can cause certain cancers and other diseases. HPV infections can cause:
  • cancers of the cervix, vagina, and vulva in women;
  • cancers of the penis in men; and
  • cancers of the anus and back of the throat, including the base of the tongue and tonsils (oropharynx), in both women and men.
  • warts and genital warts
Most HPV infections are transient and asymptomatic, causing no symptoms. More than 90% of new HPV infections, including those caused by high-risk HPV types, clear or become undetectable within 2 years, and clearance usually occurs in the first 6 months after infection.
As dr Handsfield wrote:
Probably 25-30% of all sexually active men in North America or Europe are diagnosed at one time or another with genital warts. (...) Going further, at least 90% get HPV at least once, and at any point in time at least 50% of all men and women in their 20s and 30s have active HPV infections.
IMPORTANT message for MSM: please vaccinate yourself as soon as possible:
Participant mean age was 25 years (range = 18–40), with 48.9% self-identifying as gay and 86.5% reporting having sex exclusively with men. At baseline, 530 participants had HPV DNA present (61.1% with high-risk HPV, 84.9% with low-risk HPV)

2. HOW TO KEEP MENTAL HEALTH DURING HPV INFECTION?
HPV infections are so common that nearly all men and women will get at least one type of HPV at some point in their lives. Most people never know that they have been infected and may give HPV to a sex partner without knowing it. Nearly 80 million Americans are currently infected with some type of HPV. About 14 million people in the United States become newly infected each year. source
"Women who reported self-destructive coping strategies, like drinking, smoking cigarettes or taking drugs when stressed, were more likely to develop an active HPV infection," said principal investigator Anna-Barbara Moscicki, MD, FAAP, chief of the Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine and professor of pediatrics at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Medicine. "We also found that women who were depressed or perceived themselves to have lots of stress were more likely to have HPV persistence," she said, adding that this study is the first to show these connections between stress and HPV persistence. source
When researchers looked at the 10 most prevalent types of HPV, they noted 36% of prevalent infections persisted after six months, 20% persisted to 12 months, 13% persisted to 18 months and 9% persisted to 24 months (95% CI for all). source
Most HPV infections in young men and women are transient, lasting no more than one or two years. Usually, the body clears the infection on its own. It is estimated that the infection will persist in only about 1% of women. It is those infections that persist which may lead to cancer. There is some research that suggests that the virus can hide deep in the affected mucosa or skin for several years, below detectable levels. These are called “latent” infections. Having an HPV-positive test followed by an HPV-negative test might mean two different things: that the virus has been completely cleared by the body, or that the level of infection is so small that laboratory tests cannot detect it. Thus, HPV might “reappear” several years after an infection (whether or not it was treated) when the immune system weakens (because of aging, pregnancy, illness, etc.) and then cause lesions. It is unknown what proportion of HPV infections go latent, nor what proportions are truly cleared by the body.

HPV infection is necessary but not sufficient to develop CIN. More than 90% of infections are spontaneously cleared by the immune system within one year without treatment. Approximately 60% of CIN 1 lesions regress without treatment and less than 1% progress to cancer. However, it is estimated that 5% of CIN 2 and 12% of CIN 3 cases will progress to invasive cancer if untreated. In general, it takes 10 to 20 years for CIN to progress to cancer, allowing a significant time period for detection and treatment. Progression from CIN to cancer requires persistent HPV infection.
Co-factors associated with persistent HPV infection and progression of disease include smoking, HIV infection, and other types of immunosuppression.

Previous studies have reported that women with lower intakes of vegetables and fruits as well as vitamins A, C, and E have a higher risk of high grade CIN and CC [9,12]. Accordingly, our study highlighted the protective role of the prudent dietary pattern, a Mediterranean-like diet pattern, which was negatively associated with the risk of CIN2+. Particularly, CIN2+ risk was lower among women with medium–high adherence, compared to those with low adherence to the prudent pattern. source
People who eat fruits and vegetables, which happen to be good sources of antioxidants and other phytochemicals, have a lower risk of heart disease and some neurological diseases, and there is evidence that some types of vegetables and fruits in general, protect against a number of cancers as epidemiological studies revealed, without providing the answer whether any specific bioactive molecules within fruit and vegetable have a special contribution on lower incidence. However, 80% of American children and adolescents and 68% of adults do not eat five portions a day. Inadequate dietary intakes of vitamins and minerals are widespread, most likely due to excessive consumption of energy-rich, micronutrient-poor, and refined food. source
Multiple studies have found both smoking and alcohol use to be significant risk factors of persistent oral and genital HPV infection. It has been proposed that the carcinogens in cigarette smoke increase viral load as well as the likelihood of cancerous transformation of the epithelial cells infected with HPV. source
See this post about food supplements and immunostimulants and this Table of Evidence about alternative treatments.
“HPV is extraordinarily common and is the most common sexually transmitted disease. Almost every sexually active person gets exposed to at least one, if not several, of the 15 carcinogenic viruses,” said Mark Schiffman, MD, head of the HPV unit at the Hormonal and Reproductive Epidemiology Branch of the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics at the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
“If you’ve got HIV, you’ve got HIV, but if you’ve got HPV, you’re about to not have HPV,” Schiffman said. “Nine out of 10 times you don’t have it in two years. Maybe your body suppresses it like chickenpox, maybe it is completely gone, but the result is that you are OK.”
“If you look at the curve, what it shows is that if you wait six months, you’ve gotten rid of half your worry,” Schiffman said.

3. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (F.A.Q)
Q: I have a que...
Before asking any questions download and read the CDC's guideline:
Q: Can I upload my photos to /HPV?
No, you can't. There are special subreddits such as /IsThisHPV /genitalwarts /Warts where you can upload your photos. Besides of that only a real doctor can diagnose you. Some people think that Fordyce spots, Vestibular papillomatosis, Pearly penile papules or Molluscum are warts.
Q: I'm a virgin. Can I have genital warts?
Very unlikely. You can search Google for keywords:
Q: How to deal with stress?
Check this NHS website:
Q: Does HPV infection mean infidelity?
HPV is often shared between partners and can lie dormant for many years; having HPV does not imply infidelity, nor should it necessarily raise concerns about a partner’s health.
https://www.cdc.gov/std/tg2015/hpv-cancer.htm
Q: Does removing genital warts remove the infection?
No (that's why recurrence rates are high).
Q: Will I have genital warts forever?
Only ~1% people with low risk HPV have recurrent genital warts.
Q: What are genital warts transmission rates?
Genital warts are very contagious, with an estimated rate of infection between 60 and 75 percent from unprotected exposure (NIAID, 2004; Soper, 2002). The incubation period for genital warts is usually between three weeks and six months, but it may last for years after exposure (ASHA, 1998; ASHA, 2006).
source
Q: Will I have oral warts?
Around 0.5% people have oral warts and 5% people with HIV, so there is no need to panic about oral warts. If you want to get a proper diagnosis then see ENT (Ear Neck Throat) doctor.
Oral warts are usually asymptomatic, may be persistent or uncommonly, may regress spontaneously. HPV-associated oral warts have a prevalence of 0.5% in the general population, occur in up to 5% of HIV-seropositive subjects, and in up to 23% of HIV-seropositive subjects on highly active antiretroviral therapy.

Q: Is Gardasil really safe?
It seems so:
Q: How effective is Gardasil? How about 1 shot? How about 2 shots?
Check these links:
Q: How long does Gardasil work?
At least 12 years:
Vaccine effectiveness of 100% (95% CI 94·7–100) was demonstrated for ≥12 years, with a trend toward continued protection through 14 years post-vaccination. Seropositivity rates at study conclusion were >90% (HPV6/11/16) and 52% (HPV18) using competitive Luminex immunoassay, and >90% (all four HPV types) using the more sensitive IgG Luminex immunoassay.

Q: Should I disclose my active/previous infections?
Check this link:
How about HPV and relationships?
Here is dr Handsfield's opinion: answer to the question #4882
Over time, almost all HPV infections are suppressed or entirely eradicated by the immune system.
Our usual advice about genital warts is that people should either abstain with new partners, or advise potential partners of their infection, for 3-6 months after treatment, then not necessary if no recurrence of the wart. These are not science-based guidelines, just a common sense approach of many STD experts.
But none of this applies to current, ongoing partner(s). You can safely assume regular partners have already been repeatedly exposed, and no need or benefit to stopping contact now. That horse is long out of the barn, no use in closing the door now.

Q: Is HPV for life?
Comment from /Virology CJay07
I studied HPV for my PhD work, and the statement that "HPV is with you for life" isn't accurate. Most sexually active individuals are infected with HPV at one point during their lifetime. Epidemiological estimates range from 60-80% by the time you reach your forties. However, most infections are cleared by the immune system within a few months. A small subset of those individuals that do not clear the virus maintain a persistent infection (~1-2 years), but even those infections get cleared. An even smaller set of people go on to cancer. By that time however, the virus is generally long gone. One common situation in HPV-associated cancer is where the viral genome accidentally becomes a part of the host chromosome and the oncogenic (tumor promoting) elements of the virus become constitutively expressed. Those elements lead to rapid cell growth, among other things. Despite a little bit of the viral genome present at this stage, no viral particles can (or will be) produced.
HPV infects basal epithelial stem cells, which are self renewing and give rise to the rest of the skin architecture. Here, the virus is maintained as an episome (viral DNA tethered to the host chromosome). There are no in tact virus particles here. Just viral DNA. It takes about three weeks for daughter cells (cells produced from the epithelial stem cells) to reach the surface, and it is not until during the final stages of cellular differentiation (cells becoming keratinized, stratifying, forming the uppermost layers of the skin) that you actually get the production of infectious virus particles. The virus coat (capsid), which envelops and protects the viral DNA, is produced very late during skin differentiation. This is a very fancy mechanism for immune evasion if you think about it. The superficial layers of the skin are not routinely surveyed by the immune system (because these cells are going to die), so by the time HPV expresses its most immunogenic products (the capsid proteins), immune cells are rarely to be found. This is one thought for how HPV can persist for so long (months to years), although the virus has many other "tricks" up its sleeve to hide from the immune system. With all that being said, when I say "virus is cleared", I mean the viral DNA is gone from its reservoir cell (the epithelial stem cell). Once that is gone, you don't have new viral particles being produced, and those particles that are hanging out on/in the skin will be lost during the natural turnover of the skin. This process wouldn't take long. It's more on the order of weeks, rather than years.
Other opinions:
Virologist, John Doorbar about HPV clearance and latency:
Q: How many people have latent infections?
In case of women (results from 15 years):
Most CIN3+ cases (76%) were diagnosed in women who were positive at baseline (the first known positive HPV result); 16% were attributed to apparent newly detected infections and 3% to possible reappearing infections.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/32141607
Q: What is low risk HPV clearance time?
Information submitted by IvoryHorse:
Q: Why HPV clearance takes so much time?
The host’s immune response to HPV infection (humoral immunity, mainly IgG) is usually slow, weak, wane over time, and varied considerably with many women not seroconverting. Generally, close to half of the individuals seroconvert to L1 protein of HPV 16, 18, or 6 within 18 months. Other HPV antigens [E1, E2, E6, and L2] do not evoke any antibody responses in patients with acute or persistent HPV infection. Natural infection-elicited antibodies may not provide complete protection to HPV over time. A recent WHO position paper stated that host antibodies, mostly directed against the viral L1 protein, do not necessarily protect against subsequent infection by the same HPV genotype.

Q: I'm worried about oral HPV...I'm worried about GWs transmission...
Please read answers made by dr Handsfield: Oral HPV questions and Genital warts transmission on Ask the Experts website.
More informations about oral HPV:
Read these links before asking questions about oral HPV.
Q: What are the first-line treatments against genital warts?
You can try Cryotherapy, Imiquimod / Aldara, Podophyllotoxin, Veregen, Laser surgery. Don't use Podophyllin. The problem with all treatments is that there are high recurrence rates. Removing GWs doesn't mean HPV clearance. It's just removing symptoms.
Q: How about urethral warts?
You can ask your doctor about Laser surgery, electrocauterization (painful), ingenol mebutate (expensive) or photodynamic therapy.
Q: I'm gay. What doctor should I see?
Q: What are the first-line treatments against nongenital warts?
Salicylic acid and Cryotherapy. Check this article:
Q: Can immunotherapy be used against warts?
Yes, please check this link and download the PDF file:
Q: How to use Podophyllotoxin? How to use Imiquimod? How to use...?
Q: How effective are treatments against genital warts?
See this PDF:
Another study:
The most efficacious treatments compared to placebo were surgery (RR 10.54; CI 95% 4.53–24.52), ablative therapy + imiquimod (RR 7.52; CI 95% 4.53–24.52), and electrosurgery (RR 7.10; CI 95% 3.47–14.53). SUCRA values confirmed the superiority of surgery (90.9%), ablative therapy + imiquimod (79.8%), and electrosurgery (77.1%). The most efficacious patient-administered treatments were podophyllotoxin 0.5% solution (63.5%) and podophyllotoxin 0.5% cream (62.2%).
source
Q: My doctor suggested podophyllin against genital warts. Should I use it?
Read this PDF:
Q: Which treatments should I use?
Ask your doctos. They finished medical schools and get money from you. Let them do their job. If your doctor is ignorant then find a better one.
Q: Can I use OTC freeze kits against GWs?
No. Avoid ignorant and dangerous ideas from some random people/websites. Dr School's clearly states:
Do not use on areas with thin skin such as the face, armpits, breasts, bottom, or genitals. Use on these areas may cause burns and permanent scarring.
Do not use on moles, birthmarks, warts with hair growing from them, genital (on penis or vaginal areas) warts, or on warts on the face or mucous membranes (such as inside mouth, nose, anus, genitals, lips, ears or near eyes). It may cause burns and permanent scarring of skin or blindness.
Q: My doctor gave me Podophyllotoxin... My doctor gave me Imiquimod / Aldara… can I use it more often? I'm really desperated.
No. Don't do it. You will get serious side-effects. Stick to the instructions from your doctor and from the leaflets. One time I used Podophyllotoxin for 3.5 days (it should be used for 3 days) and it created small wounds in my genital area. It wasn't a nice experience.
Q: Can I combine Cryotherapy and Podophyllotoxin?
See this clinical study and ask your doctor.
Q: What is the cheapest/easiest way to lower chances for GW recurrences?
Propably it's genital warts removal combined with oral Zinc or Zinc Sulphate. Unfortunately Zinc can cause side-effects in some people. Always read the original clinical studies to know all details (i.e. about dosage).
See this post:
Q: How about Inosine Pranobex?
See this PDF about Inosine Pranobex.
Q: Can Zinc be useful against nongenital warts?
See this PDF: Oral Zinc for warts.
Q: Many clinical studies are locked behind pay walls. What to do?
Please use www.sci-hub.se website. Usually it's enough to copy and paste DOI to download PDF with selected clinical study.
Q: Are there any medicines that boosts immune system?
Yes, there is Inosine Pranobex and it's quite popular in central Europe. Unfortunately it can cause some side-effects. The generic names of Inosine Pranobex are i.e. Groprinosin, Neosine. You can check the leaflet: PDF file.
Q: What is the cheapest supplement that might be useful against high risk HPV infections?
Propably it's Casein hydrolysate and some vitamins. Unfortunately it tastes terrible. You can check the study about HuPaVir that contains Casein hydrolysate:
Q: Are there any new therapies against genital warts?
There is ISDIN Verrutop, which can be used against nongenital and genital warts. It's made in Spain but can be ordered from online shop in Portugal. ISDIN Verrutop should be applied by health professionals. Check its leaflet: LINK.
Q: Is it safe to get pregnant soon after LEEP procedure?
It will be better if you will wait at least 12 months.
Five hundred ninety-six patients met inclusion criteria. Median time from LEEP to pregnancy was significantly shorter for women with an spontaneous abortion (20 months, interquartile range 11.2–40.9 vs. 31 months, interquartile range 18.7–51.2, p-value 0.01), but did not differ for women with a term birth compared to preterm birth. Women with a time interval shorter than 12 months compared to 12 months or more had a significantly increased risk for spontaneous abortion (17.9% vs. 4.6%, aOR 5.6, 95%CI 2.5–12.7).
source
Q: Are there any new therapies for women?
Please check this study about gel called Biguanelle: LINK and Papilocare: LINK.
Q: Are there any effective laser therapies (besides laser surgery)?
There is photodynamic therapy (effective against genital warts and CIN)
By 1 week after the last treatment, the complete clearance rate was 95.93% in the ALA‐PDT group and 100% in CO2 laser group (P>0.05). The clearance rate of CA at male urethral orifice was100% in the ALA‐PDT group and 100% in the CO2 laser group (P>0.05). The overall recurrence rate calculated by the end of the entire follow‐up period was significantly lower in the ALA‐PDT group than that in the CO2 laser group (9.38% vs 17.39%, P<0.05).
source
All patients achieved complete clinical remission one week after the last session of treatment, and human papillomavirus loads decreased significantly. Six months follow-up after completion of therapy, none of the patients had recurrence.
source
and Pulsed Dye Laser therapy (effective against genital and non genital warts).
Complete resolution of treated warts was achieved in 96% of lesions. Side effects were limited, transient and infrequent. Lesion recurrence rate was 5%.
source
Unfortunately both therapies are not available for the most people.
Q: What are the recurrence rates for genital warts?
You can find the answer for this question (and other basic questions) in CDC manual.
Recurrence of anogenital warts within 3 months is common (approximately 30%), whether clearance occurs spontaneously or following treatment.
Q: I have strong genital warts outbreaks. Why?
There are many possibilities, for example:
Q: I have Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis. Is there any hope for me?
Please check clinical studies about RRP and Gardasil. You can also check the studies about MVA E2 therapeutic vaccine.
Q: I don't have a health insurance. Can I use Apple Cider Vinegar? ACV?
ACV can cause chemical burns, scars or make your skin thicker. It's always better to see a doctor than try not reliable "home remedies". If you live in the USA then Planned Parenthood clinics should be affordable.
One Redditor wrote:
As soon as I realized [that I have genital warts] I went to the doctor and she gave me some medicine but then I freaked out and stopped using the medicine and instead used vinegar method which worked but left big scars and it spread like crazy.
Another Redditor wrote:
Do not I repeat do not use ACV it seriously fucked me up thank God I didn't use it in the glans and only the shaft. If you wanna see what it did to me I can do you a picture and it will change your mind fast. It looked like my dick got road rash.
Q: Can I shave my genital area?
It's better to trim genital hair than shave.
Q: Where can I find the informations about different HPV strains? Is there any list of different strains?
Check this PDF file:
Q: Are there any therapeutic vaccines?
There aren't any comercially available therapeutic vaccines, however there are some vaccines that showed efficiency in clinical studies:
There are many ongoing clinical trials:
Besides of that some scientists / dermatologists use:
Search Google Scholar for more informations about each vaccine.
Q: Can nongenital wart spread to genital area? Can genital wart spread to nongenital area?
In the most cases - no. Some HPV strains know how to infect either areas with mucosa (i.e. penis, vagina, anus, mouth) or normal skin. Unfortunately one study showed that HPV7 can infect both areas:
PCR screening for HPV7 in other 190 individual AGW specimens revealed 25 positive cases (13.16%), of which the amplified fragments were sequenced and confirmed to be HPV7 sequences. Although HPV7 was generally found in hand warts and recently also in warts in toe webs, our data suggested that the role of HPV7 in AGW should be considered in the future clinical test and vaccine development for AGWs.
source
Q: How about hand-to-genital HPV transmission?
Clinicians can reassure their patients that HPV transmission is unlikely to occur through hand-to-genital contact. The majority of genital HPV infections are likely to be caused by genital-to-genital sexual transmission.
source
Q: Can low-risk HPV strains cause carcinomas and HSIL?
It's rare but possible.
Anal squamous cell carcinomas are predominantly associated with high‐risk human papillomaviruses (HPVs), particularly HPV 16, similar to cervical, vaginal and vulvar cancers. Although the presence of “low‐risk” HPVs, in particular genotypes 6 and 11, have occasionally been reported in various HPV‐related anogenital cancers, the overall distribution of these genotypes in the anal canal and perianal tissue may differ to that in the cervix. In addition, although the majority of anal and perianal cancers are associated with HPV, some are not; hence, confirmation of direct association of the virus within a lesion is important. Using laser capture microdissection, anal and perianal invasive carcinomas and high‐grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSILs) in biopsies previously associated with HPV 6 or 11 alone were isolated from tissue sections and HPV genotype tested. Of seven cases tested, four invasive carcinomas were positive for HPV 6 only, one invasive carcinoma was negative for HPV and two HSILs were positive for HPV 11 only. (...) From these results, we confirm that HPV 6 and 11 can occasionally be associated with high‐grade lesion and anal cancer.
source
Q: Can high-risk HPV mimic genital warts?
Studies have shown that oncogenic genotypes 16 and 18 may be also related with condylomatous lesions in nearly 12% of cases. Moreover, HPV-driven VSCC and high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSIL) are mainly related to HPV-16, although other HPV subtypes are also frequent. It has been proven that approximately 10-15% of women with vulvar HPV-changes have genital warts on the cervix, and 50% of them show cytological and colposcopic evi- dences of HPV infections. Therefore, inappropriate treatment of both low and high-risk HPV sub- types infections carries a significant risk factor for the development of precursor lesions and neoplasia.
source
Q: I'm a male. Should I know something more about HPV?
Yes, please see this article: Genital Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Infections in Men as a Factor for the Development of Cervical Cancer.
Q: Is it possible to get tested? Can males get tested?
If you are a woman, then you can ask your doctor for a pap smear and HPV test. Besides of that some companies offer HPV testing, however their tests are not approved by FDA. See this quote:
Many are methods for HPV detection used in cervical cancer screening as well as in the study and management of patients with cytological alterations of the lower genital tract. Need for HPV detection methods in men are numerous: screening for both partnegender; anogenital warts; recurrent respiratory papillomatosis; HPV-related cancer in men; fertility. No HPV test for men has been approved by the FDA, nor has any test been approved for detection of the virus in areas other than the cervix. Many are methods for HPV detection that have shown their usefulness in some of the pathologies associated with male HPV but, despite this, none of them has been approved for man.
source
Q: Is pap smear a HPV test?
No. Pap smear checks if there are any abnormal cells. HPV PCR test checks if there are any HPV strains in the selected area (i.e. cervix). Doctors can take samples for pap smear and HPV test during 1 procedure.
See the CDC website:
Q: How about acetowhite test?
The sensitivity of the acetowhite test for hyperplastic warts is very high, but for other types of warts is low. Detection of subclinical HPV-infected areas is difficult; the acetowhite test did not assist in the identification of additional areas of infection in our patients.

2020.10.09 22:26 sporkduck Are we all just "a Couple a Fellas"?

Hello Kaufman! Here's the deal: My obsession with Charlie has reached new heights during the pandemic coupled with "Kaufman season" (Antkind, ITOET, BJM added to Netflix) and this has led to me gushing about him to my friends, family, and partner as I work through Antkind and re-watches of his stuff. As part of this obsession, I've been reading, watching, and listening to a lot of opinions on his work on Letterboxd, here, and with those people to which I gush.
A big talking point between my (non-African American) girlfriend and I is Charlie's views on women. My friends who share my love for him are mostly other priveleged, straight, white, cis men who love movies and overthink, save for a few women friends of mine. When I first watched Adaptation and kickstarted my love for Kaufman, I cherished it so much because of how deeply personal and deeply relatable Charlie was through the screenplay. It made me, Unseen, feel Seen.
I think the reasons why I love his writing probably matches the general consensus of this sub: his writing makes us feel less alone. Like his work is made for us. This personal touch is exciting, but I worry can potentially breed idolization, blind spots, and reinforce bad subconscious behavior.
I don't think this sub would argue that Charlie's work has a bit of a problematic edge with women, non-conforming genders, people of color, and generally people who aren't like him. My girlfriend immediately asked me to stop saying "thon", for example. I understand the ramblings of B. are supposed to be satirical and he (sigh, "thon") is supposed to be insufferable, but Charlie has a unique writing voice, and sometimes I don't think he separates himself from his work that clearly (Caden, for example).
My question to this sub is whether or not this hyper-personal and vulnerable style of writing reinforces problematic opinions on people who don't look and think like Kaufman. I want to believe this sub is diverse and open-minded, so please let me know if I'm totally tone deaf here!

2020.10.08 17:34 csm133 Starting Guide to FI

Been seeing beginner posts asking similar questions about how to start, so I'm looking to make one post about starting out, if anyone wishes to add on anything, please mention it in the commnets
Beginning
 
Emergency Funds / Bank account
 
The first thing you should work on is an Emergency Fund, this would be liquid cash of about 6 months of expenses
The purpose of this fund would be to cover yourself and any dependents should a period of unemployment due to injury, illness, retrenchment or should any unforeseen event requiring cash immediately occur.
This Emergency Fund should be placed in a High Interest Savings account to accrue interest, ideally 2% P.A or higher.
At this moment of time the recommended savings account is SingLife at a fixed 2% on the first 10K for the time being
After that there are a few options
  1. Etiqa's Gigantiq (2% on first 10K for the first year)
  2. StashAway Simple with their projected 1.4% P.A
  3. Standard Charted JumpStart with fixed 1% on first 20K for those under 26
  4. DBS Multiplier (Depends if you can fulfill the requirements)
Please do your own due diligence before using any of these products
The process of saving
A decent starting guide is 50/30/20 on how to allocate one's salary if
This means
After a while it's not unusual to adjust the proportions as one sees fit
Everyone has their own lives and different circumstances, so feel free to adjust it as you see fit if 50/30/20 doesn't work out
The reason why saving is so important is that one's savings rate is just as important, if not even more important than market performance
It is a good idea to keep trak of one's financial position
 
FI Number
What is the "FI Number"?
It is the net worth at which one can retire and live off of indefinitely
This is the end goal for FI
A rough etimate will be when one's annual expenses is 3.33% of their financial capital.
A Safe Withdrawal Rate is the rate at which one can draw out their funds without running the risk of outliving their retirement fund
3.33% is a rather safe Safe Withdrawal Rate with and kyith talks this and other matters here however, this is a deep topic that is worth reading more. I will just touch on it here as this is a starting guide
 
Insurance
Once again this will require your own due diligence
 
Hospitalisation Insurance
The most basic insurance is Hospitalisation Insurance, in Singapore you can look at the Integrated Shield Plans (ISP)
Integrated Shield Plans will allow one to stay in Private, Class A and Class B1 wards during hospitalisation and have it be covered by their insurance, as opposed to only being to stay in Class B2 or C wards under MediShield
The premiums for ISP can be paid using MediSave up to the Annual Withdrawal Limit, which would be $300. For those under 30, one can sign up for Private Hospital ISPs and have it totally covered by MediSave
One should sign up for an ISP as soon as possible due to the risk of pre-existing conditions, where an injury or illness that arose before signing up for it the insurance plan would not be covered by the plan
 
Life Insurace/Total Permanent Disability
The purpose of Life Insurance and Total Permanent Disabilty (TPD) is to cover dependents in the event that the person insured passes away or suffers a crippling injury.
This is different from Hospitalisation Imsurance as that covers hospital bills, whereas Life/TPD will pay out a lump sum of cash that can be used to cover costs of living (housing, utilities, food etc) for your dependents
 
Term Vs Whole Life
Term vs Whole life is a common question
Term: Think of this as a subscription service like Spotify or Netflix, where for as long as one pays the fees (premiums) one will be covered by the insurance policy, usually cheaper than Whole Life
Whole Life: Whole life plans are more complicated. The general idea is that one puts in money into the plan unti they hit a certain amount and the money there will be used to cover them in the event of death/TPD at a multiplier. They are more expensive than Term Life plan and they usually offer the ability to draw money from the plan and a projected interest rate of 3.75% to 4.75%
 
Usually Term is recommended in FI circles as
  1. It's cheaper, leaving more money available for investments
  2. Even an average year in most index beats the projected 3.75% - 4.75%
  3. it's simpler
For reference while these plans like to boast their projected 3.75%-4.75%, CPF offers guaranteed 3.5%-5% on your first 60K depending on whether it's your OA, SA or MA
 
These are the key insurance plans one should look for first, after ISPs and Life/TPD one can look at supplementart insurance plans like Early CI, Personal Accident etc as they see fit. I may do a more in depth post on insurance in the future
Once again please do your own DD before signing up for anything.
 
For those who are still holding onto Aviva NS insurance plans
These plans aren't necessarily bad but it is a Group plan, so if Aviva, Mindef or the Gov ever decides to change or terminate the plan one would have no say in the matter and would just have to accept it.
Additionally while the Group Term Life plan is pretty cheap, one can find even more affordable plans at CompareFirst if they are young, so it's a good idea to compare the prices if you're not sure which is best, especially if one is looking to bundle in a Critical Illness rider.
The Group Personal Accident is very cheap and other personal, so even though I don't really do any dangerous activities I keep it and max it out for like $72 a year
Update: I have a more comprehensive guide on insurance here
 
One might wonder why I decide to cover these topics, particularly insurance.
The reason is that when it comes to investing, one needs to be able to buy and hold, especially during more turbulant markets, in fact, if one might want to invest more in a downturn.
However, if one does not have a strong financial foundation, during a downturn they might be forced to sell at a loss to cover meet their need which is the absolute worst case scenario. Just because the economy is in a downturn doesn't decrease the chance of illness or accident occurring.
Therefore I believe it is important to secure oneself before investing
Investing
One of the most popular investing stratergies is to invest in Index Funds, which are made of dozens, hundreds or thousands of individual stocks, thereby buying the whole market FirePathLion has a post explaining Index Funds here and the 3 Fund Portfolio by John Bogle followed by most of the FI community is covered by FirePathLion here
 
Full Disclosure: Personally, I prefer investing in Global Index Funds like SWRD,IWDA,VWRA and EIMI, I wrote about the best broker for these funds over here for those seeking to invest in any specific markets I am afraid I do not feel confident enough to offer advice regarding that
 
These funds are broad global index funds that cover either developed (SWRD/IWDA), developing markets (EIMI) or both (VWRA). I talk a bit about them here
However, how one decides to invest is purely up to the individual, what stocks they wish to invest in and in what proprotion is entirely up to them, what I am writing here are recommendations based on general consensus and my personal understanding
According to the 3 fund portfolio, the percentage of stocks be [110-(your age)]. So for example, a 20 year old would be 90% in stocks and 10% in bonds (ABF bonds).
Out of this 90% of stock if one were to follow the 3 fund portfolio, one would invest half of it, so 45% in foreign stocks like SWRD/IWDA/VWRA/EIMI and the other 45% in the STI.
However it is not uncommon to modify the formula to suit their preferences such as by
  1. Going 100% in stocks
  2. Reduce their allocation in STI to 10% of total holdings
  3. Investing in VOO/SPY directly
Which Index to invest in heavily depends on how much one is able to commit to investmenting monthly. I assume one would be familiar with the concept of Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA).
 
100-500/month : Straits Times Index/ABF SG Bonds/MBH Bonds via POSB Invest-Save FSMone RSP or US via Robo Advisors
At this amount fees are the biggest concern when it comes to investing
E.g, If one invests $100 per month and pays $3 in fees, so $97 is actually invested. If the stock goes up by 7% that year, their final amount would be 107% X $97 = $103.79, a real increase only 3.79% on the principle amount!
From what I gather, optimally, one should not pay more than 0.2-0.3% in fees
At this point the best one can really hope for is under 1% in fees
STI isn't the greatest index, but it is the most accessible for our purposes, providing a 7% return whick is Ok
Robo Advisors are basically brokers that allow one to buy into a mix of funds, at a predetermined ratio automated with the use of an algorithm, usually at low costs, more details here
 
600-2600/month:Hold onto the investment money and invest Quarterly, Bi-Annually or Annually (I would recommend Standard Charted as the fees would be approx 10USD with no custodial fees)
At this point if one is under 26 they can start looking at Interactive Brokers as they only charge 3USD in management fees and these fees will be waived if the commissions for that month exceed 3USD.
 
More than 2700/month: At this point one can start looking at investing directly on a monthly basis
 
Lump Sum Investing
There have been a few posts asking how to invest a lump sum or what to invest a lump sum.
The best answer would be to do their own reading on personal fiance and investing, decide what they wish to invest in and alloacte accordingly
Some recommended Index Funds that I personally invest in or looking to invest in are SWRD and EIMI
However in the end, nothing can beat an individuals own DD when it comes to investing

2020.10.08 01:43 rafiuzky Não sei conversar com pessoas

Como diz o título, não sei conversar com pessoas de uma forma informal, sempre fui uma pessoa muito quieta, introvertida e tímida, e ao longo dessa vida tive poucos amigos, mas essas poucas amizades eram(e algumas ainda são) muito fortes.
Porém quando eu vou conhecer alguém novo, eu não faço ideia de como puxamanter uma conversa saudável, sinto que eu me acostumei em já ter uma base de amizade com pessoas.
Hoje com meus 20 anos, em uma cidade que conheço ninguém(por conta da faculdade) estou começando a me sentir mais sozinho do nunca, meu perfil também não ajuda muito, a maioria da minha faculdade gosta de sair pra balada, churrasco, festas, confraternizações, etc; e pelo meu lado eu sinto um total desconforto e falta de ar quando estou em ambientes assim.
Sou dessa forma apenas com pessoas na qual eu me relaciono de forma informal e descontraída; quando estou em uma situação mais profissional, conversando com pessoas de um emprego novo, eu consigo manter a conversa tranquilamente, falando coisas que fogem do ambiente de trabalho.
Recentemente decidi tentar sair dessa minha “bolha” social e começar a tentar conversar com pessoas que não conheço, você deve estar se perguntando “como você fará isso?”, bem, Tinder.
Baixei o Tinder e só mandei pra direita, mulher, homem, hétero, homo, bi, cis, trans, pra mim pessoa é pessoa, só quero trocar ideia, nos 2 primeiros matchs sinto que falhei miseravelmente pois ambas não responderam mais.
Foi o famoso “oi tudo bem?” , “sim e com você?”, “tudo certo”, aí depois disso eu travo, não sei muito o que falar, já tentei perguntar coisas tipo, “tem alguma série da Netflix que curte?”, ou “conheceu alguma banda legal recentemente?”. Porém como disse, falhei miseravelmente, um vácuo de 5 dias, até as conversar sumirem.
Agora a pouco uma garota deu match em mim(estranhamente bonita), e mandei o famoso “oi td certo?”, e estou já refletindo que eu posso ter nascido para falhar socialmente, morrer sozinho, já que fazem uns 3 anos que não faço amizade com ninguém.
É isso, boa semana guys

2020.10.07 20:18 TikiB October 7, 2020 - Market Analysis

I basically write these from 1-2pm most days so might as well just post them and update at EOD if any last minute movement changes it.
Only one trade today and this is a good example to show about potential risk/reward and why getting in slightly early is not the worst case scenario. Here is the daily chart for HLYN. Ugly AF right now, basically in freefall having dropped 45% from the top 6 days ago. From purely a chart perspective, I would be much better off waiting for the $26-$27 range. That is where the volume profile spikes and that is where you have your last candle support. I bought in today in the high $30 range. So why didn’t I just wait until it goes to where the charts suggest? Well with the charts, it is never a 100% science and doesn’t always have to go to a certain point. My thesis is – we have dropped 45% in 6 days. There is a potential 10% more downside until support. However, outside daily BB, oversold on 4 hourly. To the upside, there is volume profile support through $37-$41, there was also two bounces in the $42.
You also need to know history of this stock as Tortoise Acquisition Corp. (SHLL) shares converted last Thursday. Many people expected this merger to bring a spike but it has brought the opposite and now those traders are panic selling. I wish I could find the video but someone laid out a great video explaining basically this:
So basically you flush those looking for a quick flip/those who want to lock in some profit, it will bottom out, and rebound. So, although this may not be the bottom, for me the upside potential is worth the downside risk. Now for your regularly scheduled program.

Markets - SPY, QQQ, XLV, XLF, IWM, XBI
Chart Perspective – I find todays SPY bar interesting. Perhaps it will move more at the end of the day but given where it opened, it hasn’t been a wild day. As of 1:45pm from open to now it is only up 0.75% and the entire bar is quite tight. Of course everything is tight relative to yesterday’s monster sell off after the up. For me it just signals that people calmed down overnight as Trump flip-flopped a bit, everything opened up, but people still hesitant to throw money back in right away. Everything, except biotech, was an inside candle from yesterday. Outside of news, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a tight range into the end of the week.
Investor Perspective – See yesterday.
Energy and Oil Companies - MEG Energy Corp, Crescent Point Energy, Cenovus Energy, CDN Natural Resources, Suncor Energy, Enbridge, Teck Resources Limited, Husky Energy, Vermilion, Imperial Oil
Chart Perspective – I think today will be called indecision because every name that I skimmed through was an inside candle from yesterday. Inside candles, from a trading standpoint, is when you just want the range and wait to see which way it breaks. With that, what I have said last few days holds. We are still below moving averages and have yet to see any trend change bullish in a long time so weak until further notice.
Investor Perspective – See this week.
Gold Miners - Kirkland Lake Gold, Kinross Gold, Barrick Gold, Eldorado Gold, IAMGOLD, B2Gold, Yamana Gold, OceanGold.
Chart Perspective – Gold just can’t get through those moving averages. And that is why your gold miners look the same. These have been in equilibrium for weeks now. Holding pattern until one side decides to push.
Investor Perspective – See this week.
Marijuana Stocks - Canopy, Aphria, Aurora, HEXO, Organigram. Cronos, and some US MSO’s.
Chart Perspective – Positive market news + rumours of the buyout = monster day for MJ. The majority broke through the high of yesterday. What I will say about these charts. I don’t consider yesterday any real pullback. I consider that the market/Trump tweet. When I look at the chart I basically take that day out and say – we have now moved up 3 days in a row on the rumour news and use that bottom as last support. For now, moving to top of BB above MA as the news continues to push the sector. Again, tough to read a chart and say look for ‘this’ and ‘that’ when news/momentum is pushing it right now.
Investor Perspective – Unless we see a big pullback, I don’t think I’m getting my entry pre-election. I think the COVID news on Trump has put Biden further in polls which obviously helps this cause.
Banks - BMO, RBC, Scotiabank, CIBC, Manulife, TD
Chart Perspective – You could see the banks strength a few days ago and the momentum hasn’t stopped. The volume, the push through moving averages, the lack of pullback yesterday. It really all did line up for short term strength. Most are getting to the top of the BB so I wouldn’t be surprised to see some short term sideways/cool down soon.
Investor Perspective – See this week.
Tech - SHOP, Lightspeed, Real, OpenText, Kinaxis, Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Netflix, Tesla, Twitter
Chart Perspective – 2 days ago we were bull flagging. Yesterday we were back testing MA. Today, back towards the top we go. Basically a tightening range on most tech names as most are within a few day range…so we wait for further signals of a break.
Catch All – REITS, Airlines, Telecoms, Retail, Aerospace, Blackberry, Bombardier
REITS - obviously Brookfield buyback of shares still pumping those names and residual effects on other names in the sector. Kind of like MJ, I can’t argue against momentum with charts.
MTY - Ran big into last financials and I take it as a similar play today.
GOOSE - up 41% since September 1st. All retail doing fairly well recently. Definitely missed the signs on those. It has been grinding up for a while now.

2020.10.05 13:10 Status_Target5679 Sto cercando una possibilità di vedere film italiani

Salve :) Vengo dalla Germania e sto cercando una possibilità di vedere film italiani con sottotitoli in italiano. La selezione in Germania è incredibilmente pessima. A Netflix ci sono forse 10 film, ma tutti senza sottotitoli, lo stesso con Amazon. Ma ho bisogno di quei sottotitoli.
Qualcuno ha qualche idea? In Germania, per esempio, ci sono siti come cine.to, ma non conosco gli equivalenti italiani.

2020.10.04 21:22 chasecrosswa 32[M4F]Seattle - Dom ISO for his Opposite-Yet-Equal Cis-Female Sub partner

It's worth noting that I do not intend to physically meet up with anyone until we've both determined we've successfully social distanced from people for, at least, two weeks. I also would like to this moment to encourage everyone else to also practice social responsibility by staying home and avoid physical encounters. This pandemic is STILL a serious issue and if you want to protect your loved ones, the best thing to do is avoid all risks of being a carrier. Trust me, I know what's it's like to be overwhelmingly lonely -and horny- but health takes precedence.
With that said...
Hello, everyone. My name is Chase. I’m a Dominant/Master who is 32yo, an INFJ, transplant from California, egalitarian, proud nerd, photography and astronomy enthusiast. I spend most of my free time exploring the Seattle area, exploring new restaurants, and scouting out places to photograph. Alternatively, I can also be a homebody so I do love my days-ins. I can be an adult when the situation calls for it, but honestly, I feel no shame whatsoever in laughing at old memes or dumb youtube videos.
So, I'm seeking Someone who is my opposite and yet my equal. My ideal partner is someone whom I can teach to be the ideal submissive. On the other hand, she is also someone whom can teach me to be the ideal dom. Perfection is by no means a pretense of mine and I would expect us both to learn from our mistakes as well as our successes. Trust, comfort and safety take precedent overall else. I feel that if I, for whatever reason, fail to adequately provide even one of the three, I fail as a partner and dominant. This is also why I also value open-communication
What I’m looking for: I’m primarily seeking a mutually nurturing and fulfilling long-term, monogamous, in-person relationship with a D/S dynamic with someone who identifies as cis-female. I strongly prefer someone who is around my age or younger and someone who is petite to athletic. I will consider every message I receive, though. Personality-wise, my partner would be extroverted, spontaneous, passionate, confident and energetic. She craves adventure, excitement and is likely to smile and laugh. Think Daisy Ridley offset (God, I adore her!)
I have a great admiration for women who are strong, independent, knows exactly what she wants from herself and her partner(s), won’t let inhibition get the better of them and are able to fully embrace their kinks and desires. With that in mind, I have a desire for a sub who is physically-affectionate, service-orientated, slutty, obedient, sexually-inclined and intuitive on how to please her simaster. So, I'm in search for someone who proudly claims ownership of her own life and craves for the release of submission knowing that it won’t compromise her integrity as a strong individual. Basically, my ideal partner is a strong submissive.
I’m exceptionally turned on by objectification so my ideal partner would be someone who is either tolerant of being treated like a toy or turned on by it. Otherwise, I greatly appreciate child-like innocence. In other words: a sub whose spectrum can range from Little to Slave When things get hot, intense and intimate, I would expect my partner to behave like the submissive that she is. She would also be my “sex slave”, “cock whore”, “grope toy”, “cum slut” or any other arbitrarily demeaning noun I can assign to her. She’ll be someone whom I’ll teach, tie up, protect, spank, reward, collar and leash among other things. I’d love someone who will cook for me wearing nothing but an apron and butt plug. Or will willingly wear a harness underneath her clothing for the whole day when I want her to. Or will immediately drop her panties to the floor when I order her to. And so on, and so on, and so on.
And when it’s all said and done… She can gently and safely step down from sub-space so that she can spend time with me doing other things. Vanilla things. This includes going out to do things like exploring, checking festivals, hiking, watching films, checking out new restaurants or going on roadtrips. Alternatively, we could have days-ins where we can enjoy playing Mario Kart/Smash Bros, binge-watching Netflix/movies or cuddling. Preferably while watching Marvel or Disney films. Honestly: I've got a giant weakness for them.
What I have to offer: Affection, comfort, intellectual stimulation, emotional security, loyalty, total safety, private play space, check-ins and mandatory post-play aftercare, unconditional nerdy trivia and mean-ass steak and the best gluten-free pho you’ve ever had!
If you’re wondering about my end goal, it’s this: This isn’t strictly a kink-relationship. I also want it to be a vanilla one. If the stars-align and we match up perfectly, minds and hearts, I’ll undoubtedly would like to have a future with you. Bring you home to meet my mom; visit Disneyland together; possibly get married; have children. But for now, one step at a time, right?
In any event, I sincerely thank you all for taking the time to visit and read through my ad. I apologize if it seems long-winded or overly-demanding. I'm just over-elaborate more than anything, heh. But if I somehow managed to entice you and appeal to your interests, feel free to message me! Alternatively, if you know someone who may match my interests and vice versa, please pass along my ad.
Either way, I hope you all have a wonderful week!

2020.10.04 13:54 eldiablocondor Social Dilemma

Non a caso ho utilizzato il titolo di un bellissimo documentario Netflix per aprire un dibattito.a chiunque non abbia visto questo documentario ne consiglio la visione anche se può essere tranquillamente riassunto in "I social ci uccidono lentamente da dentro, disinstallali brutto bastardo ed esci a drogarti con le droghe vere mica queste cose da millennial"
Da buon lobotomizzato e persona facilmente convincibile (mi basta una televendita alle 4 di notte sugli aspirapolveri per mandarmi fuori di testa finché non lo compro), appena ho visto questo documentario, ho disinstallato qualsiasi social network dal mio aifon
Il Risultato? già prima non è che fossi il Dio dei social, infatti durante i primi 3 giorni penso di non essermi nemmeno accorto della loro mancanza, mi faccio parecchio i cazzi miei e utilizzo i social principalmente per vedere qualche culo all'aria o un paio di zinne di compaesane o vecchie compagnie dell'elementari. Un gioco da ragazzi.
I problemi cominciano ad uscire al quarto giorno, decido di voler andare fuori a cena, ma il ristorante non risponde e l'unica soluzione è quella di provare a prenotare scrivendogli su Facebook a.k.a. "Brain_destrukto4000" ma no. non posso rinunciare in questo modo al mio voto di castità. allora decido di farmi un bel piatto di pasta a casa.
L'usato. IL MERCATO DELL'USATO. Il Marketplace di Facebook penso che sia una delle più grandi droghe moderne. "facebook? quando mai uso facebook, è da boomer" ma puntualmente mi ritrovo a guardare tutti gli articoli usati sul marketplace in un raggio di 100km da me e anche se so che non mi servirà mai un Fon con 3 livelli di potenza per capelli ricci (sono calvo, ndr) il prezzo è troppo competitivo. magari un giorno mi ricresceranno i capelli e nel frattempo questo articolo potrebbe non essere più disponibile! Insomma, un circolo vizioso. Però stavolta mi serviva davvero trovare una bella offerta per un iPad che avrei usato al lavoro

MA NO, NON INFRANGO IL VOTO DI CASTITA' E DECIDO DI COMPRARLO NUOVO DA APPLE STORE a.k.a. TRUFFA.COM. ovviamente online, comodo, da casa. Senza cedere alla tentazione di un'illegalissima "consegna a mano solo per oggi Covid gratuito" con Piertotano Favoreggi contattato su effebì il giorno prima, con la passione per la moto e la birra e con cui probabilmente avrei instaurato un bel livello di amicizia: "Hey come va con il tuo Fon?" "Bene grazie sto aspettando che mi crescano i capelli" "già l'ho venduto per lo stesso motivo"

Va beh potrei farvi altri 1000 esempi di genere satirico, ma abbiamo capito. Accusiamo i social perché ci rendono apatici, ci distaccano dalla realtà ma anche se sei un "aaah io i social, pff, due mondi separati, come si accende Whatsapp?" probabilmente ancora non lo sai ma sei completamente dipendente e come se non bastasse ormai la società non ti permette di farne a meno, rischi di diventare ancora più apatico e asociale. Non sai a che ora chiude quel ristorante in fondo alla via, non puoi permetterti di non avere un "profilo" e di non tenerlo aggiornato se no il tuo datore di lavoro stalker prima di assumerti vede che l'ultima tua foto pubblicata risale a Giugno 2011 con un giga spinello in bocca e gli amici dietro che fanno il medio e ti mandano a fanculo e se non ti trova penserà che tu sia uno psicopatico molestatore di giovani Egirl sotto il nickname di gigacazzo3000
Insomma, che ne pensate? abbiamo davvero raggiunto quel livello per cui senza social diventi asocial? o possiamo guarire?

2020.10.04 11:00 UNDERCOVERRAVEN Good ways to let someone down easy?

I just started using Hinge and it's brought me my first real opportunity to date multiple people. This also brings the first time I have had to think about breaking things off with someone when I start seeing red flags, even when those flags might not be a problem for others. Here's some context:
I'm a 23 year old, cis-het man, and I've gone on two dates (and one Netflix party) with a 21 year old woman. On both dates she has agreed to things she didn't want to merely because she didn't catch on quickly enough and was to shy to speak up. Granted these two times were benign, but you can probably tell what I'm concerned about.
On the first date there was a bar at the event we went to. I suggested one mix drink option, and to also throw out an idea she pointed to a white wine bottle and said "I've had that one before." The bartender then began pouring the wine for her. She stuttered, thought to speak up, but held back. She didn't like the drink and later got the drink I suggested. She said that she didn't know what to do, with how quick the bartender was, and all the choices of drinks she never had before. On our second date, we were at a pizza place. We decided I'd buy us one pizza to share. The place operated like Chipotle, where you go from one end of the counter to the other choosing toppings. As I started going down the line, the server asked my date, "and what would you like?" She studdered, obviously confused, and then proceeded to order a second pizza. She said she hadn't realized what was going on until she was already ordering the pizza.
She's very sweet and obviously worth going on multiple dates with, but I don't feel comfortable with the prospect of an intimate relationship with someone who often agrees to things they don't want. I would never feel confident in her consent, even if it were enthusiastic. Before our dates, she and I asked each other what we were on Hinge for and after I said, "Friends and social distance dating" she said the same thing, but in a more shy, "I'm here for friends, but if you grill me on it, I'm really here to date" kinda way (with paraphrasing).
I asked my best friend's advice and she said to ask her if she often agrees to things she doesn't want. My mom said to just ghost her... If you were her, how would you want someone to break things off with you after two dates?
