My mom is a bitch aboyt it too so I have heard all of that BS. The thing just is that if you wanna get bullied then go ahead and wear one but I don’t.
Yep us moms are that way. We fear we will lose our kids.
My mom always tells my stepdad to check that I wear my helmet AKA be a bitch too. He doesn’t care tho. They are 38 and 39. He probably remembers frim when he was 16.
What feels like a restriction now will look totally different when you are older. One day you will be the dad being the geeky person telling your kid safety stuff.
I mean my mom has told me a lot of fucked up shit. She once told me aboyt how she went to a bar at 16 with fake ID and had a threesome with some 20 year olds. She also told me about her mom forcing her to wear one. She never worr her helmet tho. My dad doesn’t give a shit and we always bike without helmets. I strongly doubt that I will force my kids to get bullied.
Some things you should take to your grave and never let your kids know. Now I understand. Lots of times when parents are wild when they are young they get super strict because they fear their kids will do the same stuff. It isn't fair but it happens.
Wdym by some things should be taken to the grave?
Your mom shouldn't have told you about her sexual stuff. Not unless she was using as a warning like always do safe sex or something or I was pretty messed up and I did that. She just shouldn't have told you that stuff.
We are very open and I don’t get traumatized easily so it’s fine. She has also given me a lot of tips.
Old people usually wear them but I’m talking bout teens and young adults mainly
There is the idea out there that young people today are tamer than ever before. They're having less sex, not smoking, and I don't know about drinking. Replaced it with weed? So six of one, half dozen of another. (Don't fry your brain kids. They say wait til 25 before doing any of that. Brain's still developing.)
Hahahhahaha. I have already been wasted many times. I have fucjed a lot of hoes after oarties too. My mom got me at 21.
Don't call them hoes though. If you want sex and they want sex, they are not lesser than you. You're both in the same boat. Don't by hypocritical.
But it’s different because I’m a dude. It’s just an advantage of being a guy. It’s the harsh truth.
Not respecting a girl for choosing to sleep with you is now no different than many other moral hypocracies. Like saying you don't believe in drugs but selling them to other people to get money in your pocket (that would be weird, right?), or condemning people for abortion, but then secretly encouraging a girl to have one because you're too young and couldn't reasonably at all take care of a child. Be happy that the girls are choosing you, instead of thinking less of them because they do.
Yeah you’re right. I (Pic of me: https://imgur.com/a/zRmataa) can choose a bit who I sleep with too. I considrr myself a good looking dude and have never had a problem getting girls.
Apparently you are a chameleon of sorts. I like the top hat you the best. Ha. Changed your mind, eh.Good looking guys who can talk a girl up can probably get them, but later on in life you may want to keep a girl, and that's the trickier part. But have fun for now. You're still young. I'm just saying you can still treat them well, in the mean time.
Yeah with my good looks it’s easy to get girls.
If you were as confident as you say you are you wouldn't anon this though.
I could’ve gotten you as well
I would have liked to see that. Sounds fun.
But you’re like 30y older than me so not possible
Correct. We both spoke past tense.
That’s right but what I said still stabds
Well I don’t attend races or stuff like that. The harsh truth just is that you will get bullied for it and looked upon as a loser. Sorry for being realistic. I have nothing against the dud and will never bully him but that’s jut how things are.
I hurt my bullies as a child. I also didn't even give them notice until they touched me. Realistically speaking, only the idiotic bully. And if they bully someone who values safety they're probably going to die a lot sooner. 🤷🏾♂️ That's true reality.
And how will you beat 10 guys up? I’m just being realistic.
If at any point there are 10 people ganging on 1 individual, there is a serious problem and should be addressed. This is how those school shootings come about.
Well we have only had 3 or 4 of those in like 60 years so we are safe.
Reminds me of a show I watched. That's called complacency. 🤷🏾♂️If you feel that's the case, go ahead. The future is unpredictable. No telling what tomorrow holds. An animal is most dangerous when backed into a corner. Bullies push someone far enough and the bullies become Swiss cheese or pincushions. Reap what you sow and all that jazz.
No one does here in Northern Finland either. It’s just this one dude vs all of the dudes in our class. I have felt like saying something to him but it would be too mean ig.

For old people like you guys I understand. I’m 16 and I prefer not getting bullied.
Not sure what country you're in but in my part of the US if you don't wear a helmet you don't look like a real cyclist, the helmet is just part of the look, you got the gear you're a serious rider. Other than that you look like a DUI offender on a bike.
It’s -5 here in Finland so I would much rather wear my beanie.
Way different country, in the US helmets are cool, you're seen as a hard core cyclist if you have the gear. People buy expensive shit to ride even if they're not that hard core. But , that's OK it might get them on their bike more and they might become actual cyclists. One thing I don't do is talk shit about cars , I get over when cars go by and stick to bike paths, I'm not as fast as a car and I should keep out of peoples way.
They look like pussies!
The beauty of getting older and wiser is knowing that people that think that way are not worth your time. Guys worried about looking like ****ies, typically are the ones that don't get any.
Yeah but nobody else wears that shit in out class. Just be realistic and admit that it is embarrasing.
Yeah everyone wears one when driving their mopeds or watever. I’m talking aboyt pussies who wear one when biking.
Well I wouldn't call them pussies, a lot of stunt artists use helmets on bicycles, some people care about their safety. Regular road bicycling I wouldn't see it as much as a big deal, I'd say I'd see it more often in mountain biking trails though.
Ye i always where one on the trails but on asphalt...
Then learn to bike properly. I learned that stuff at 8.
I have known someone with a head injury. Not from a cycling accident, but still a very sad situation.A car slamming into you doesn't care that you were "biking properly". You could ask the girl from high school, but too late, she died under a truck at 22.
Was she hot? I doubt a helmet would have helped shit if it was a truck.
I guess yeah but you will get bullied for it at this age.
No, not really. Lots of people see me with it and don't mention it at all. It has saved my head a few times from falls.
Same here but you don’t get fined
I mean I don’t bully anyone but it’s prolly his mom forcing him or smth. I don’t wanna look like a pussy so I’m not gonna wear one.
