Pero de vez en cuando, Kate recibe un rando grosero en sus comentarios. Recientemente, alguien (que puede haber estado troleando, pero aun así) preguntó cómo es posible que ella sea capitana de barco cuando es mujer. “¿Cómo puedes ser un capitán?” ellos escribieron. “Su [sic] sólo una mujer”.

Como mujer con un trabajo tradicionalmente ocupado por hombres, esta no es la primera vez que Kate lidia con el sexismo. Aún así, no podía simplemente ignorar un comentario tan ignorante y horrible. Entonces ella respondió con el mejor aplauso absoluto de todos los tiempos.

“Normalmente, cuando me desplazo por los comentarios y veo algo como esto, lo ignoro por completo y sigo con mi vida”, dice Kate en el video de TikTok. “Pero creo que ya es hora de que aborde esto porque es 2020 y en esta época, me sorprende que alguien todavía no sepa la diferencia entre ‘eres’ y ‘tu’.

“Entonces, solo una referencia rápida. Eres como eres, como, ‘Eres sexista’. Tu es algo posesivo. Te pertenece, como tu ignorancia. Pero no te preocupes, estoy aquí para ti. Si necesitas más aclaraciones…” En este punto, retrocede y se sienta en su silla de capitán. y continúa: “…Puedes encontrarme aquí, en mi silla de capitán”.

Se las arregló para corregir la gramática del comentarista y abordar su sexismo e ignorancia, todo de una sola vez. Es simplemente increíble, un regreso de primer nivel, y a la gente le encantó. El video ha sido visto más de un millón de veces en TikTok y más de seis millones de veces en Gorjeodonde alguien lo volvió a publicar con la leyenda “BRILLANTE. No esperaba eso…”

Kate no solo es experta en derrotar a los acosadores de Internet, sino que también hizo historia al ser la primera mujer estadounidense en capitanear un crucero gigante, según El Telégrafo. Simplemente no deberías meterte con alguien tan rudo.

Ella también trae a su gato, Bug, con ella en todos sus cruceros, lo cual es simplemente perfecto. Kate había soñado con ser capitana de un crucero desde que su padre le dio la idea cuando tenía 12 años.

“La idea de poder hacer esto como una carrera, pensé, era alucinante: poder divertirme todo el tiempo y viajar en el barco”, dijo. Kate ha logrado cosas asombrosas en su carrera y le encanta compartir su genial vida con sus seguidores en las redes sociales.

El artículo continúa debajo del anuncio.

“Una de las mejores cosas del trabajo es poder viajar y experimentar el mundo”, dijo. “Mis publicaciones están orientadas a eso para mostrar que hay muchas oportunidades en este trabajo. Y, si lo ves, puedes serlo”.

Si sus redes sociales son una indicación, Kate tiene muchas cosas mejores que hacer que detenerse en trolls malvados y retrógrados que adoptan creencias obsoletas y sexistas. Ella sabe exactamente cómo ponerlos rápidamente en su lugar y luego quitarse todas esas rayas de capitán en su hombro.

Who was ‘RHOSLC’ star Whitney Rose’s friend, Shari Quai?

Fans may recall seeing Whitney’s friend, Shari, in a 2020 episode of RHOSLC. In a Season 1 episode, Shari attended Whitney and Justin’s vow renewal and Whitney’s 1920s-themed party that same season. During Season 4, Ep.12, “Icy Apologies,” Whitney shared in a scene that Shari, her friend from age 23, had been intubated following a battle with Stage 4 colorectal cancer.

On April 27, Whitney posted several Instagram photos and videos of her and Shari to honor her friend’s legacy. In addition to praising her friend’s dedication to her family — her husband, Josh, and living children Lily, Vienna, and McCade — Whitney expressed the grief of losing her close friend of over 20 years.

“I write this with tears in my eyes not only because I will miss you deeply, Shari, but because you added so much beauty and love to my life,” Whitney wrote of her friend under a slideshow of their moments together. “It is so rare to find a friend like you, and I am forever blessed that I did. I love you, my soul sister, in this life and beyond. I love you.”

Whitney Rose’s friend’s death caused friction between the ‘RHOSLC’ star and Lisa Barlow.

Whitney discovered the news of her friend, Shari’s death while filming Season 4 of RHOSLC. After sharing with her husband that Shari had been intubated, she revealed on the show that both she and Shari knew her life was ending.

“I was with her on Monday, and she couldn’t even get off the couch,” Whitney recalled on RHOSLC. “I’m worried. I think we’re losing her. When I sat with her, that’s what we talked about – how she knows death is here.”

In another scene from the Season 4 episode, Whitney attends Meredith Marks’s launch party for her business, Plated by Meredith Marks. However, she had learned of Shari’s death shortly before the event. When she arrived at the event, Whitney noticed Lisa, who she thought was her close friend, hadn’t mentioned anything about the loss of her friend.

After noticing Lisa got Heather Gay a gift and not her, Whitney confronted Lisa at Meredith’s event. During the confrontation, Lisa admitted she didn’t know how Whitney grieved and didn’t know how to help her with losing her friend. Whitney felt the excuse wasn’t good enough, especially after she went to great lengths to ensure Lisa had supported her in the past.

Why Do You Have to Crush Snail Eggs?

Published

on

Why do you have to crush snail eggs? Whether you’re a snail owner or happen to find a nest, snail eggs are probably best taken care of on sight.

The Gist:

  • Snail owners often have to crush snail eggs on a regular basis.
  • Though some are reluctant to do so, many advise that the eggs should be taken care of.
  • We break down what folks have to say about destroying snail eggs.

Not so long ago, everyone was on the spotted lanternfly killing spree. As overt pests that can disrupt ecosystems and harm crops, we as a society were pretty much tasked with keeping these bugs at bay and crushing them on sight. I, personally, have seen plenty of crushed lanternflies on the sidewalk and have gotten a couple myself as recently as Fall 2023. It might seem a bit cruel at first, but it’s more necessary than one might think.

By that same measure, people do the same thing with snail eggs. If they happen to find some or if a pet snail lays them, it’s apparently better to get rid of the lot rather than let them hatch. Here’s what folks have to say about what to do with snail eggs.

Here’s why you should be crushing snail eggs.

Folks began discussing snail eggs after a TikTok video from @mildhippie went viral. As the self-proclaimed “snail egg crushing queen,” she has made several videos on both snail keeping and, of course, crushing snail eggs.

You might be surprised to know that she does have several snails as pets and she cares for many of them as best as possible. It’s because of this that she is an active proponent of crushing snail eggs.

In one of her most popular videos, she offers a deep dive into the importance of crushing snail eggs as a snail keeper. She explains that snails reproduce asexually and can lay more than 800 eggs a year. Allowing them to hatch means that you could, you know, end up having to care for more than 800 snails! Taking care of 800 of anything is an impossible task for anyone, even snails and snail keepers.

Releasing these snails in the wild is also not an option, as you may be introducing an invasive species into an ecosystem. Not only that, but many of these snails would hatch as “runts,” which are weaker snails that supposedly suffer every day because of their weakened bodies.

Given all of these troubling statistics around snail care, it’s no wonder that expert snail owners advise that snail eggs be crushed on a regular basis.

While @mildhippie loves her pet snails deeply, she also recognizes the responsibility placed on her to ensure that no one’s lives are completely overrun by snail eggs. To that end, she even offers tutorials and advice on how to crush snail eggs safely. In some cases, she even feeds the crushed eggs to her living snails, which is apparently something that snails are a fan of?

If you’ve ever thought about taking care of a snail as a pet, this is your first important lesson.

Now she’s currently involved in a massive lawsuit along with other women accusing members of the church for forcing them and others into marriages.
