But Quora is a much more insular community populated by highly educated, specialized users.
The site also has a loftier mission statement.“Quora aims to allow anyone to easily share their knowledge and in the process to dramatically increase the total amount of knowledge available to the world,” writes Quora Founder and CEO Adam D’Angelo.
Quora already boasts excellent SEO, strong content, an engaged audience and social sharing functionality. Whenever I’m feeling down and out, I head on over to YA to cheer myself up. This question is by far the most heartbreaking on this list.The level of WTF-edness over there is just endless. I want to reach through the computer and hug this woman for all she’s been through.These kids (and some adults) shouldn’t have to feel like random Internet strangers are their only recourse for finding this information. I highly doubt this girl is pregnant, but if she is, she’s at risk of getting too far along to terminate because she’s too afraid to ask for help. I don’t know how old this girl is, but judging from the quality of the writing, I would guess old enough that she should have at least a basic understanding of how pregnancy works. A quality sex ed course could cover what to do when an older person makes you feel off, as well as period stuff. If she’s this clueless about her period (though no fault of her own) then how is she going to navigate sex and dating? Whatever is going on, it isn’t normal and I hope she gets it checked out. I would wager to say that many teenage girls feel this way. And they should know that they can choose not to as well.Below are 15, but I could easily have shown you 50. She would know it wasn’t typical if she had access to the right resources. Even good sexual education courses rarely cover things like pleasure or consent.
