scrots like james damore always go "AKTCHYALY EXPLAIN THE EQUALITY PARADOX" but it all makes perfect sense.

it's not true for every extremely conservative society - just iran and other states in which sex segregation works in a particular way in schools. it's proven that girls perform better in academic segregation while boys perform worse. women are able to study on their own terms without being pestered by scrots and worrying about how they're perceived by them. if they're not getting married off by arrangement, sex segregation works wonders for their education.

in "feminist" societies like sweden and norway, everything revolves around biased notions of equality and gender blindness. women and men are forced to be together which ultimately ends with women catering to men. there's porn and other crap that "liberates" no woman ever, but there's a tremendous pressure to maintain a libfem sexpozzed facade. women give up and proceed to be homemakers because they're worn down by scrots' exhausting presence.

The 3rd one is manipulative but not in a way that I actively think about doing.
I do want someone to tell me I'm lovely, it's just hard to feel that way if I don't feel that way about myself.
And then I just explain how I feel, and looking back, it is an attempt at getting some sort of compliment but it just doesn't register that way at the time.

>I know I’m too controlling and have anger issues. I like things a specific way and I expect everyone around me to know, and follow that. I get angry and annoyed quick, and I have a hard time controlling myself in situations like that. When my partners are distressed I’m great at staying calm and helping them- but the second someone “crosses me”, I lose it.
Holy shit anon, I'm exactly like this. Although I've rarely ever had any anger outbursts with anyone, I tend to withdraw because the anger feels too much to handle and leave them wondering what's wrong. I guess the important thing to do is mention what's bothering you, instead of letting it build up. It's hard because it feels like there can be dozens of little things…
I mention these things gently in moderation to my bf and things are a lot better. If someone isn't making you happy you need to let them know. If they can't handle it then you aren't compatible.

That being said you need to work on your anger issues too, I'm getting better and I'm a lot happier now. A lot of the time it's a matter of perspective. A lot of things aren't worth getting upset over. They are a small blip in your life that you'll probably forget about days later. If you change your perspective before you're extremely angry it's so much easier

I can’t stand ugly people, a very specific kind. Where they make its the worlds problem. I’m going to be as clear as I can through text.

I don’t mean people who’ve been in accidents disfiguring them, or ugly people who actively try to look better matched with a beautiful personality. I specifically men genetic abominations that try to guilt people for not wanting to be with them/fuck them/marry etc.

They ALWAYS are matched with an even uglier personality and never practice what they preach. If you acknowledge you’re not even average in appearance, that looks can get you ahead in life/better treatment, and want this beautiful woman or man than you will have to try harder to achieve a better level of attractiveness.

Nobody is obligated to love you, especially if you’re disgusted with the sight of yourself. I tired of ugly people wanting the cream of the crop of a partner but not someone their own level. Surgery is more affordable than ever, work out, style yourself, work on not being such an ugly person on a personality level. You can hold that anger in all you want that a woman turned you down or your dream man “would never notice you” but if you’re doing nothing to be as close to attractive as the person you want while lashing out at the world you deserve to die alone.

Up until high school I wanted to be an airplane when I grew up. Not an airplane pilot, an airplane. It was around that time I gave up my dream because I realized I would be too small. However, I started reading about airplane crashes and even though it was super morbid, it piqued my interested in being an airplane again. Now I just want to run around with my arms out and say things that a ground proximity warning system would say like "Terrain terrain", "Don't sink" and "Whoop whoop pull up"

I'm like your friend and it was the right choice for me, it worked out well for both my happiness and finances. But I still find myself wishing I had a degree sometimes. My earning potential is limited, I can't do things like teach english overseas, people might think I'm dumb or lool down on me for being uneducated, I have fewer career options, etc. You can still do an office job one day if that's what you want, but it's good if you have other choices.

That said it depends how long you've been studying and how much student debt you're in. I only had 8k debt when I dropped out so I wasn't bothered, but if you're a good way through your degree you may as well finish. If you've just started and really don't see a future in it, you might want to cut your losses.

No. 435952

All I can say is that I'm like your friend as well. My boring office job affords me the luxury of time to spend with friends and family, and to indulge in hobbies that make my life fulfilling. I do have a degree, but I'm not in my field. I worked in retail/customer service right after college, hoping to make something of myself there, but it was too emotionally and physically taxing that I ended up quitting (I have posts scattered around OT about it lol).

I like the set schedule I have now, rather than an ever changing work schedule to have to work around and constantly sleeping to conserve all my energy only for work and never for fun. After finally leaving and getting my current job, I'm still okay not being in my field. I do envy my friends who end up going into their field, their hard work paid off and they truly enjoy the thing that they do for a living, but for me, what my little money and mostly time that my job can afford me outside of work is what makes my life fulfilling. Even if I was a genius in my field I wouldn't go into it. The jobs are too hectic and time consuming. It'd be like retail again, but instead of snooty customers, just snooty big wigs and whatnot.

It just sounds like I'm bragging about how nice my life is, but what I really hope you'll take away is starting to figure out what you want from life (as horribly cheesy as that sounds). What are your priorities? Do you think it would be more fulfilling to you to have a job that has you deal in what you're passionate in? Or would you be happy enough with a (non customer service related) job that would afford you things you care about outside of work? I don't think you'll figure out the answer to this for a while, but it's something to thing about.

Ultimately whether university is worth or not is up to you. Even though I didn't get a job in my field, basically every other aspect about student life and making friends and whatever made the debt that I'm in now worth it (it was a hefty amount but no where near the amount some of my friends graduated with since I got more financial aid). There's so much pressure to make something of yourself immediately after college/when you're still young, but I think it's okay to flip flop about and take the time you need to discover what you really want to do.

I wish you good luck in the future anon! Sorry if my post wasn'tPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I don’t know how I’m college educated and I can’t write a good fucking cover letter I feel like a lost cause lmao. I honestly just want a low effort grunt job for the last two years of college but I’m actually seeing real potential career jobs offered in my area that I’d be a fool not to apply to. It’s just that I feel I have the worst luck in getting a job, I stupidly left my easy well paying job last year and I haven’t been able to find another since, not even a shitty job. I don’t know what’s wrong with me any anons have suggestions about writing a decent cover letter so I can at least make up for my lack of experience

No. 435960

This may not be a good idea but it’s worked for me I recommend googling cover letter templates from x field you are interested in. Then go to like the 3rd page in the list of results find a good one and reword the fuck out of it. Again hopefully someone has better advice than me but it’s honestly what I’ve done

You can take online classes for just about anything anon.
Not saying it's a sure thing, but if you really want to learn there's probably an online resource on skillshare or something like that.

And I think most public libraries have free resources on how to do stuff. I believe you can totally take like an hour a day to put some effort into figuring out a cover letter.

Gonna kind of ask something similar but
Are there any male rock stars that aren't/weren't awful?
I know nothing is sacred anymore but it's so disappointing when you have to learn about someone whose art/music you love be total scum of the earth. It's to a point where I'm not sure if I should even care anymore and just appreciate the music they created because literally all of them suck as humans lol
Also as rock stars I feel they get even more free passes than celebrities have. How many underage girls have they all fucked?

Kinda related but not but the talk about Bam Margera and Johnny Knoxville and such is jarring because like every other teenager obviously I liked them and had no way of knowing what horrible people they were.

This thread is for the discussion of transgenderism / trans ideology from a gender critical and radical feminist perspective. It was originally created by Admin as an amalgamation of the TERF and Transgender threads.

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.

In private or closed off conversation, yes it does peak people and mostly the general disgust is pretty common only quietly. But tras control the public narrative and they're always the victims even when attacking a rape relief center for women.

- 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
- Everyone is beautiful and we are above the discussion of appearance unlike the other nonnies!
- Yes, we’re all sick of Arteza and SkillShare.
- 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.

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
