/ot/ is a random discussion board. All personal bathroom talk should go to /g/, all media discussion should go to /m/.
Examples of a /g/ thread versus a /ot/ thread.
>plastic surgery advice/experience thread
This is a /g/ thread.
>plastic surgery deniers
This is an /ot/ thread because of the nature of the discourse.

“Safe haven” for mainly African-American women and women of the African diaspora.

The forum users, or “fonts” if you will; mainly discuss how whitey is evil, accuse female celebrities of being closet troons, witchcraft, and being a strong black woman/self empowerment.

It should be noted that the site has very racist and colorist undertones in regards to their user base while going to other sites like 4chan, Reddit and maybe Lolcow then coming back reeeing about “muh discrimination” for asspats and victim points.

Discuss the good, the bad, and the lulzy:

i respectfully disagree once you learn the site there is literally a thread about almost anyone you can think of so you can spend hours on there. Whereas here its the same tired camgirls from years ago who no one except people who visit this site/are in the circles give a fuck about. some threads on here are dope but they are so slow and they got rid of some of the milkiest threads to be on cough manhate cough or just censor them until they become shadows of their former glory. Idk man something weird happened with this site and its no longer as fun. I still visit but it lost its spunk and i hope it regains it

I find it funny how some of you anons can criticize LSA for being racist when lolcow permits the usage of racial slurs way too often and farmhands throw around Swastikas in certain posts like they're nothing. They're both the same place and attract a similar crowd of catty gossipers deep down.

I'd never heard of Skinny Gossip, but honestly without dropping numbers I'm leukemia-level spoopy so they had NO RIGHT. It would have been more clever to bully me for being an AIDS victim or something, but I guess everyone stuck to the word "fat" because they probably thought I had an eating disorder or something. Kids are mean without even realizing what they're doing, and some never realize even as adults.

It's not strange at all really, is it. Her management etc were always going to capitalise off of ultra sexualizing this hugely famous teenager as soon as it was legal. They were just clever enough to disguise it as empowerment and to have her dress like Aaliyah prior to it to hide their intentions and give them something to fall back on.

AYRT, the thing is furry art is probably the one thing I could never do. I have but on a platform that doesn’t really transfer to other platforms. Like I have somewhat of a following there but the people from there don’t really follow my other socials. I do mostly fan art at the moment and it’s the only thing that gets attention, my original art barely does.

I dreamt that I was fucking a gorgeous woman with a big dick last night.
This has weirded me out so much. I am bisexual although mainly attracted to women, but I find futas and trannies absolutely repulsive. I'm not attracted to that kind of thing at all.
Yet in my dream I didn't even give it a second thought, she was clearly a woman with incredible tits and a beautiful face, just with a dick attached I guess. What does this even mean?

No. 556998

>>556846
I think it just means you're bi anon. Perhaps you have an affinity for women, but like the feel of dick more than sex with a woman? Guessing because this is my case. Don't get me wrong I love pussy but penetration is much more satisfying to me. However I find women more attractive and eye catching than men.

I had the most bizarre dream of how I was spending the night life with these teenage boys I have never seen before (I think we were just running around & screaming, pulling pranks too)the scenery was beautiful,it was harmless fun.although it felt so realistic at the beginning it was bizzare because I saw a robotic clone of somebody even though I don't remember anymore

I rescued a dead rat from my cat and hid it away. I was upset because it was a member of species on brink of extinction and I hoped it was just playing dead. 3 days later in my dream the rat was still dead. My cat told me then that that rat was dead even when alive and "humanity's efforts are futile, you will all end up like that rat."
I try to be a positive person but I guess my subconscious ain't buying it.

I'm a UK anon. I'm going back to uni to do a conversion Msc in mental health psychology (my first degree was in English Language). I'm worried it's gonna be a waste of money because all the stuff online re: doing a psychology conversion seems to be implying that it is something of a longer route (naturally) into a psychology profession. I don't want to go into clinical, psychotherapy etc, because I know I would have to do a PhD (which I would never be able to fund). I want to be a relationship counsellor or work in psychology journalism (I did two internships at publishing houses). Am I wasting my time guys? I keep freaking out because covid is making the whole thing seem that much more reckless

>how important is having a relevant degree if one wants to become a web designer?
100% irrelevant. Only things that matter are a portfolio and experience. Education is good for you personally, having deadlines, good tutor, projects that could expand your interests, but all that matters in hiring process is your skill, regardless where you got it from. Don't wait with applying, start sending your dribble portfolio around!

>>559905
> Should I just put in a portfolio everything I've ever worked on and try to show off I know a lot a things (even superficially)?
In a hiring process it's really important for the potential employer to see you want This specific job and your CV / cover letter has to reflect that. Best practice that always worked for me is curating my CV - just minor changes - to be a best fit for requirements listed in the job offer posted. Otherwise you risk looking like you're just mindlessly sending your CV everywhere not knowing anything about the company and what they're looking for, which obviously make you a less desireable candidate. Pick the skills that are best match for the job and you can elaborate on them a little bit (not too much! CV can't be too long, recruiters have no time), and then you can add additional mini-section with "other skills" which you can just quicly list so recruiters will know there's more you can do but it's not your focus here. Don't list anything you're not confident about - you don't have to be an expert of course, but for example if you used Adobe inDesign 3 times in your life it's pointless to say you know it. Additional skills and broad interest are a very cool thing to talk more about during job interview if prompted though, so keep that in mind. Good luck!

No. 560059

Oof.
Can't tell about psychology but journalism is over saturated to the fucking brim.
If you really want to get into it, you'd be better off getting ASAP into digital marketing (and getting SEO, SEA, wordpress handling and such skills). You will really have a hard time competing against people with this skillset even in niche writing. Good writing alone is not seen as a skill of value at all nowadays.

Those publishing houses you interned at, how were they doing?

Can someone explain to me why I, who works as a public speaker who speaks to at least 100+ people a day, can't speak to people my age without feeling intimidated and inferior?

When you're speaking publically you don't have a personal connection with the people you are speaking to, you're just giving them non-personal information probably; when you're talking to someone who is closer to your age you have a connection and you try your best to make them like you so it's intimidating.

Why do I attract broken people?

I don't want some project to work on, I don't find it attractive. I just want to find friends, maybe a relationship, not fix others.

I know everyone has issues but fuck lately I ran into some serious autists. And I know people say you attract what you are, but I'm fairly normal and independent now, so wtf
