this was fan service. remember they started off as a cover band. these gay pictures got the women to come in.

he will never admit it but he hasnt been the same since his uncle vito died. he loved that man and obviously wanted him to be better.

this reminds me of afroman. the woman creeped up behind him and he swung. he didnt know it was a woman but it really tarnished him. it wasnt his fault. now rob zombie made a choice to take it further but i still sympathize with him.

I’ll also confirm that william control is an absolute psychopath. I am lucky that I was already experienced with BDSM and kink before I met him otherwise I am sure he would have brainwashed me or attempted to into his disgusting even sicker version of it that is basically just getting off on hurting women. He has a horrible god complex, narcissistic as fuck and definitely a rapist and woman abuser/torturer. I feel so bad for his victims because of the state of their fake bdsm relationship with him he makes everything LOOK consensual when he was actually horribly manipulating these women

And ALSO talking to and GROOMING women 16 and younger. I believe EVERY single one of his victims. And his music is ok he just rips joy division and Depeche Mode basically with bad lyrics. He sucks. His fans who still stick by him are fucking delusional.

This kind of stuff always bothers me since a lot of this isn't gaslighting. I feel like these kinds of things make light of actual issues. Most of what's on here isn't anything bad on it's own, especially if you take into account fights based on emotional opinions. Teaching people they're being gaslighted just by these phrases isn't a good idea.

Gender critical and radical feminism define gender as sociological (feminine/masculine) and sex as biological (female/male). Woman is defined as an adult human female. Radical feminists seek to abolish gender as it is used by patriarchy to oppress women socially, reproductively, and financially. They strive to preserve women's spaces (such as restrooms, locker rooms, and health care providers) and areas of artistic and intellectual expression separate from men.

Trans ideology posits that one's gender is self-determined based on one's feelings and defines woman as the characteristics and behaviors traditionally ascribed to females by society. Increasingly, transactivists are conflating gender and sex and asserting that a person can self-identify both gender and sex.

Gender critical feminists strive to maintain the distinction between gender and sex. The conflation of gender and sex erases the biological reality of women, eliminates women-only spaces, and disestablishes women as a protected class. Existing laws and legislation currently being passed around the world allowing for self-identification on legal documents do not differentiate between gender and sex.

The acronym TERF (Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminism) is used primarily by transactivists and their allies to denigrate radical feminists and other women who express gender critical ideas. Transactivists portray TERFs as violent oppressors by virtue of their ideas alone.

Posts of related news and web articles are welcome. Posts of photos, videos, and blogs of transactivists for the purposes of discussion and critique are welcome. Please refrain from derailing, infighting, and ad hominem attacks. This thread is not intended for the general discussion of feminism, sexuality, misogyny, or misandry.

This is also the GC general, and that's why I come here. I never visited your radfem or pinkpill threads. Check the comment chain to see why this conversation started, I did not go out of my way to defend anyone. Also yes, women should care about men and men should care about women, humans care about each other. Also, I think have been more than courteous in this exchange.

Something that doesn't happen in the Modern World, I did make it clear what part of the world I am talking about from the start. I never said there is equality all over the globe, only the part which is relevant to me. Circumcision on the other hand (not that it is nearly as damaging obviously) is very much legal and encouraged in several countries, so I guess that's another one to add.(Samefag below)

No. 473671

Men also are murdered by spouses, in smaller numbers however. Domestic violence has plenty of tiers before reaching murder and these other tiers are where 99,99% of domestic violence lies and it's pretty half and half between men and women victims. You are literally advocating ignoring victims and acting like you have the moral high ground.(This is not an MRA thread)

A containment thread for all the salty artfags of lotsoflovecow.farm!
- Ask about art supplies, but not too often as it will make the digital artists ree
- Discuss grievances about the art tuber community, but don’t be fooled by any that come to ask for our opinion; they will throw a shit fit because they work oh so hard and we’re oh so mean (but also we’re just haters haha :) so our opinions don’t bother them)
- Waffles may never be criticised because she has an illness and sick people cant be bullied on imageboards
- creepshowart must never be spoken of because that's giving her attention, which makes the farmers ree that this particular attention-seeking cow might seek attention and bring up lolcow like every other discussed cow has.
- Everyone is beautiful and we are above the discussion of appearance unlike the other nonnies!
- Yes, we’re all sick of Arteza and SkillShare.
- Yes, Copics are worth it if you use markers. And yes, they are rediculously overpriced.
- No, this isn’t a TRA safe space, so don’t ree when you see the word tranny. And no, some retard discussing their pronouns doesn’t count as art milk, you turbo autist.
- If you have beginner questions, want to know what art books to start with, or generally need to know how to begin with art, use these links

Welcome art tuber, enjoy your visit - we hope you find enough content to hit that 10 minute mark, because we are VERY empathetic to how it’s oh so hard to actually create artwork and have a personality in order to create your own content for your channel xoxo

>the victor writes the history
Both the US and Russia won WWII, yet while the western part of Germany flourished, the people in the communist east were living in poverty and under constant surveillance. It's quite clear what works and what doesn't, one victor managed to nurse the loser back to one of the most successful countries on this planet, but the other only continued oppressing them, slowly but steadily ruining every last bit of economical strength they had left.

I got out of NEETdom by becoming a security officer. I got my boyfriend to become one as well. We couldn't take the manual labor jobs that paid like shit anymore, it tore us down. Too much demand, and we came home burnt out. Both of us would be unemployed for a few months in between jobs because of how much was expected out of us. Now we just are paid to watch cameras, drive a patrol vehicle around for a couple miles, and tell people where they need to go.
It feels good to have some energy when you're out of work. Seriously, definitely apply to see if you'd like it. My only advice is to avoid any hospital positions.
During training, you'll notice a lot of people in the field are former NEETs as well and then there's a couple of people who think they can be cops or are former cops, but they go off and do their own thing and are usually at armed sites, completely optional training but you do get paid more if you're into that.
Rarely do I have to work with another officer near me at all times, if someone gets too annoying, I usually just walk away and patrol somewhere else. The best part is I'm essentially still doing my job. As long as you're clocked in and your presence is known, you're good. You get to take breaks on your own time, too.
I am a soft spoken, socially anxious person, but this job really doesn't require much. Just do your patrols, which mainly requires walking, sitting, and observing. If anything bad happens, you're advised to just go ahead and call 911 instead of being the "hero".
I get paid $13 an hour doing this shit, unarmed, where minimum wage is just above $8. It's so freeing, anons. 4 years doing this common sense shit and I'm almost eligible to apply for higher paying positions, like field supervisor, where all you're doing is driving site to site and checking up on if they need anything, like office supplies, car stuff, uniforms. You're basically just going around collecting info to relay to the main office. I am pretty sure they get paid $18+ for this.
I love it.

I just don’t think I’m made out to survive in the American economy. They require too much extroversion and aggressive personality and workaholic values… I’ve had such terrible experience with 9 to 5 employment.
I’m daydreaming about going back to live in my third world country to teach English and do niche otaku crafts to get by. My family is neither poor or rich by third world standard so I wouldn’t struggle to eat or anything. Local tourism is cheap and there’s always fresh sea food. I want to just live with some very close female friends and we can go to the beach whenever we want.
My family would never allow this of course, unless it is to marry some chauvinist salary man.

I feel bad, but who the fuck let's their cat be outdoors in an area filled with fisher cats, dog breeds known for being predatorial toward cars, heavy traffic, and doesn't even put a collar/name tag on them? Not only are this cat and I super bonded at this point, but I would genuinely worry about his safety going back to someone who lacks this much common sense.

lol left wingers hate liberals like us. But thanks for the reinforcement

I see. However, I think the idea that autists are all savants is a myth. There are a couple that are exceptionally good at coding and such. But there are also a lot that are of average or below average intelligence. A lot are drooling retards that are violent.

I really hate how a lot of autists view themselves as having superior intellect to everyone else. But these people don't have what it takes to do hard work to succeed.

>>tldr; What's simple to you can be challenging to them, and what's challenging for you might be simple to them.

I don't think this guy has any special mental capability. I guess he knows a lot of stuff, but I don't think he knows particularly more than me. I know for a fact he's not good at math. Maybe he's good at what he studies in uni but I would have to know about grades.

No. 473345

the autist I work with is good at knowing dinosaur and vidya facts and that's where his savantism ends kek. if you try to engage in any sort of abstract convo about those same dinosaurs for example where he'd need to make up shit on his own, he really struggles/just makes aggalmations of things kinda like chris and sonichu. he's high functioning I guess as he went to normal school and can drive, but he's very slow to do anything (almost robotic, even in his gait) and makes weird speech constructs despite being a native speaker, also has a very naive/shallow view of most things. basically, he's like a smart 12 year old but def a 12 year old you know?
another one is closer to savant bracket as he goes to uni for music (then again, so do many non autists so idk fam), but he's far more unbearable socially wrt the aforementioned aspects.

tldr, I think the whole savant thing may be real in rare cases, but generally is a massive cope parents tell themselves and their offspring.

No. 473411

I don't think the average autist is going around feeling like a savant. I've met a good number of them through work and they've mostly been average intelligence but low in confidence. These were also ones with harmless 'special interests' though (like trains or hoarding beanie babies) I can see how a higher confidence autist will gravitate to a special interest like politics instead, and spend his days pissing people off
