Mod [mod] Self-post weekend is active - Introduce yourself and make friends!

45 Upvotes

Welcome to r/teenagers's self-post weekend. Self-post weekend is when we, the moderating team, disable link posts for the period of the weekend to encourage more discussion and fewer memes during our higher traffic period of the week.

In this thread we also encourage you, the community, to introduce yourselves. Post a parent comment reply, and let us know who you are, what your hobbies are like, or maybe a weird quirky fact that could work as an icebreaker. In addition, we'd like to remind users not to include any personally identifying information.

Get to know one another more and Remember the Human behind that username! We encourage all users to comment and reply to each other's parent comment replies to meet the interesting members that comprise this community.

Looking for even more specific places to meet new friends and a sense of community? Visit our Discord server, where you can talk to each other in real-time with a variety of topics that occur! Our Discord server is one of the top active servers you can join to participate, so never feel as if it's empty to join and discuss!

<3,

Other [Mod] Talk host and guest speaker applications, and talk ideas submissions.

23 Upvotes

Hey everyone!

Today we are opening our first applications for reddit talk hosts and guest speakers.

As you might've seen these have been popping up from time to time (If you don't know what they are you can find out more here) and we're looking for hosts so if you're interested please apply.

But before you do. Please make sure you meet these requirements:- Must be a member of the community for 60 days or more and have activity throughout the subreddit. (We check this for every application!)- Must be in good standing (no recent serious issues with the mod team).- Must speak and write English.- Must be willing to actively use Discord as a means of official communication with the team.- Must have the ability to talk on either desktop or mobile with decent audio quality.- Must be between the age of 13-19.

If you meet all of these requirements then fill out this form.

As for guest speakers, you can apply through This form. You will still need to meet these requirements:

- Must speak and write English.- Must have the ability to talk on either desktop or mobile with decent audio quality.

For those who want to suggest a topic you can make a comment underneath this post. The comments will be set to be a contest which hides upvote counts and puts them in a random order. So we can see which ideas you guys would like to see on a talk!

For any further questions you can comment on the talk here and I will try my best to answer them.(If the talk is already over by the time you find this post you can replay it through the reddit mobile app.)

Thats all. Good luck to all who apply and lets host some talks!

Serious my mom found out I'm bisexual and kicked me out

15.8k Upvotes

She caught me and my boyfriend after she barged into my room and then she told me that my stepdad wouldn't condone of my "bisexual behavior" and kicked me out. I'm staying at a friend's house rn but the whole situation is really crushing. I don't know what to do.

Update: I'm so thankful for all of the well-wishers and people offering support rn, it's really helping to know the world is full of caring people. I have a job rn and I'm working on saving up enough to support myself until college starts this Fall. In the meantime, my friends family is accepting and will give me a place to stay for the coming months, if needed. Thank you all again.

Other My school banned all game websites. So I made a version of 2048 on PowerPoint, where they can't ban it.

139 Upvotes

So a bit of context: at school we have labs using excel. These labs take like 20-25 minutes to do, but we're given 1 or 2 hours. Since my school blocks basically every game website, I'm stuck with nothing to do. I decided to make a version of 2048 in PowerPoint, since they really can't block us from using PowerPoint. Me and my friends are going to race the game and gamble cookies over the result.

If you want to see my video of the game here it is (any constructive feedback good or bad on the video is really appreciated):

If you want to try the game for yourself or anything else, here's the link to my google drive.

Serious Nobody cares if ur gay

581 Upvotes

It's not hate, it's just that I'm tired of seeing "hi I'm gay/lesbian/any other sexuality". It's a completely normal thing. It's like I randomly shout out: hi I've got brown hair. Nobody cares

Serious my dad confiscated my inhaler cause he doesnt want me relying on it.

212 Upvotes

We were on a walk and i was getting so out of breath.. As soon as i got home i went to grab my inhaler and my dad took it away.. he said "you dont have asthma, you just need exercise! Youre so lazy". I nearly had an asthma attack.

He said i'll get addicted and too reliant on my inhaler. OFC I NEED IT. CAUSE I NEED TO BREATHE.

edit: i am 18. Dad gave it back after mum threatened to leave him.

612 Upvotes

He broke up with his girlfriend who has supported him through a bunch of crap because some girl who he's talked to once said she liked him and since she's marginally prettier he dumped her he's obviously not mature enough for a relationship if he keeps doing this idiot garbage
