652: Sad About Dad's Sexist Thoughts Re: Assault | Feedback Friday
Your father's never been abusive, but you were recently disheartened when he referred to a child sexual assault survivor and advocate who's been in the news lately as a "media-hungry slut." And when you brought up how this made you feel to your mother, she dismissively suggested you should just let it go because he's always been supportive of you. Is there another approach you can try with your parents to make them understand they're missing the whole point about why you're upset? We'll try to find an answer to this and more here on Feedback Friday!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:
- Why does Jordan crusade hard against MLM scams while giving infomercials that peddle shoddy goods a pass?
- How can you help the people of Ukraine as they continue to suffer the atrocities of invasion by Russian forces? Here's a list.
- How do you make your father understand why you're so upset about dismissive, sexist remarks he casually made regarding a sexual assault survivor who's been in the public eye?
- Your father and older sister have serious health issues that require constant care. How can you handle feelings of wanting to run away at a time when you're needed the most?
- A creative project on which you collaborated with your significant other fell by the wayside when you had a very bitter breakup. Is there a way to finish the project -- giving your ex credit and a share of the profits for their contributions -- without actually bringing this person back into your life? [Thanks to Cypher Content founder Edward Sabin for helping us with this one!]
- Your friend's brother died in a car crash when their sister, who survived, was texting behind the wheel. As the maid of honor for this friend's wedding, you want to honor the memory of their late brother in your speech, but you don't want to exacerbate the guilt, shame, regret, and PTSD of the surviving sister, who will be present. What's the right thing to do here?
- When you have a little extra to give and want to donate to a charity that is working to make the world a better place, how do you decide on the right charity?
