i'm not actually sure what to call this, it's not memes and it's not pop culture references (ok, thread pic is but it's more than that), it's more like a few people make a situational "relatable" observation and then the entire internet grabs onto it and repeats it like it gives them a fun personality and they're the ones who thought of it? other examples off the top of my head are "i hope ____ steps on a lego", "thanks, it has pockets!!", "do not perceive me" etc etc etc

This is a way older meme than any of that minecraft or censorship stuff. And it's not making fun of suicide, just a joke on mixing up similar japanese words to say something ridiculous

Ayrt and I just don't think it's funny, I don't care about making fun of suicide or anything, it's just boomer tier humor to me. I didn't even think it was self censorship or that it had anythingto do with the Minecraft shit, I should have made two different posts actually because they really had nothing to do with each other initially.

that one comic from what feels like over a decade ago about having depression but functioning and cleaning anyway, with the dumbass reddit-tier shoopdewoop art, about doing the THING and gonna do ALL THE THINGS, and how that phrase has now entered common usage in America so now I hear the stereoptypical senior waitress at Denny's talking about how she's gonna DO THE THING. it drives me absolutely insane, this use of phrase. it's nice to watch older movies and shows where no one ever mentions having to DO THE THING. it comrs off as infantilizing, but honestly it's annoying more to me because I know it's origins are internet retarded and it entered the real world anyways.

Thanks, they are only winter/fall boots so I think they will last a while because I can't wear them all the time. I've had boots from the same brand before and the quality was only okay (in the sense that they didn't fall apart, they were completely glued together though) but honestly I can't think of a brand that isn't Fluevog or New Rock that makes good quality boots anymore. I don't wear (new) leather so I usually end up with 'vegan leather' (plastic) shoes when looking for them. My boots are still super comfortable but so worn down, I tried cleaning and shining them and whatever the hell but it didn't work. Guess I'll think about it kek.

Ayrt, I also like Skyler and don’t really get why people hate her too unless again, they hate every other character in the show. It’s literally just misogyny.

>>1429653
I don’t think anybody had a truly happy fantasy ending at the end of the show. It’s all more like good enough for their circumstances. She has a good support network and is successful doing something she actually loves, that seems pretty ideal to me. Bojack should have died though.

Can we have a fujoshi cringe thread? We already have a weeb cringe thread somewhere but I really want a thread where we focus on fujoshis or cringey yaoi. Can be about your cringey past self or your cringey NEET friend or gay obsessed tumblrinas, it doesn't matter. What are your experiences, farmers?

Anons can even qualify that there's nothing wrong with liking BL/Yaoi >>>/ot/1425256 or not liking a female character, and that you just can't hate a character for being female only, and they take issue with this because they just hate women while wanting to pretend that they don't because it means anons will shit on them for being retarded misogynists because women don't turn them on and get in the way of their ships. They seethe that everyone who shits on them is a pickme because they are retarded and think all female characters are hentai-esque because that's all they spend their time around/in fandom spaces dedicated to getting off.

They claim to hate sexualisation of women but then agree anything with a female character, even something created by women, is coomerish, aka see something aimed at women no matter how normal because they say all female characters are like this, as sexualised coomershit.

It's so cringe how they're trying to pass their fetish off as a joke now (see all the cringe "being a fujoshi IS feminism!! haha based yaoi!" memes and tiktoks) when everyone who takes a look at their profile for more than 2 seconds will quickly find out that it's not and these are actually women years deep into yaoi coomer brainrot, often in their mid 20s. I've also seen male troons call themselves "male to fujoshi" now so there's that.

I haven't noticed any bugs at all, but the game will be free next year so you could wait to play it. I saw it on sale and pulled the trigger, definitely don't regret it as I'm having a lot of fun. The base game on sale was fairly cheap, I think the deluxe versions just include the currency to buy seasonal items. Either way I recommend it, it's very comfy, takes me back to playing harvest moon n64

I just cut off my abusive mother. 18 years of dealing with that windbag, i snapped. friends and therapist know. only family member I'm not estranged from, my father, doesn't. went through extremely triggering episodes from september through the last few weeks. saying I would avoid my arms they're now serrated to hell. this last year alone I've had multiple centimeter or so long wounds that bled for up to 24hours. in august I was beginning to regain my confidence and life broke me. I have worked through it all and only started telling people recently. I bottle up my difficulties not wanting to burden them until I explode

I ditched my glass yesterday, watched it sink in the river. finally said I'm tired of doing this to my body and I burst into tears. want to throw out my cigs too but I occasionally puff one for stress. I hope this is the beginning of the end. I want to heal from this deep desecrating hurt.

>I ditched my glass yesterday, watched it sink in the river.
It sounds liberating, glad you've done it and chose to do it in such way, for me it feels like it adds so much more weight and importance than just simply throwing it away in the trash. It's a poetic beginning of a healing process.
You sound so determined, you took such difficult and important steps, I really believe that you can do it, heal and be gentle with yourself from now on. I hope you come back to the thread in a few months to let us know it's all going fine and you're better than ever. Please be safe.
Maybe you do it already, but I want to share since it's something I find soothing; when relapse to self harm is over I give myself some extra time every day gently massaging moisturizing cream on all the scars, one after another; there's something really comforting and good in this feeling of gentle touch on something that was so painful.

I’d love a Japanese bf but the problem is they’re so short and I’m already a bit taller than average

Is it really rare to see guys over 5ft10 there? when I was in Korea I saw lots of guys 6ft+ And lots of girls over 5ft7 which was cool but i think I’d just feel like a monster compared to the guys in Japan

i was meant to be in japan right now! i am a full on gaijin but i am very respectful and trying my hardest to learn japanese. the ghibli theme park just opened and i cry at the thought of going there because its just so nostalgic. couldnt go bcs i wanna go when covid isnt an issue whatsoever so places wont be restricted/need tour guides. japanese boys are so cute and say they want to marry me, it seems a lot better there than where i am! not a fan of the culture surrounding young girls and ‘lolis’ and how normalised it can be there over there. as a pretty petite woman i’m a bit nervous for public transport or walking down dodgy streets. i’m sure its just as unsafe as any other foreign country in bad areas, but i worry that some nasty pedo tout is gonna snatch me up and force me into sex work

I was there in June 2020 and took the plane back home at the end of the month and I remember the rain part but it wasn't too hot just yet. I actually liked that weather a lot. From what I understand it's going to be just as humid in July but way hotter. As long as it's not as hellish as this summer in my city anything is fine. I legit had headaches all the time this summer it wasn't just hot, it was very dry and "heavy" because of the thunder that usually happens after every heatwave but this summer we had a whole month of 37°C everyday with no thunder/rain in between for some reason.

imo, it's not really the heat that's the issue but the humidity. especially since you still have to wear a mask everywhere. it spikes to almost suffocating levels in July/August/early Sept. it rains so much more than in the American south, I believe. it feels like you're swimming when you're just walking sometimes.
