Hey, I'm 22 years old and I still like "childish" things like toys and cartoons. Fiance(23) doesn't understand why I like this stuff, he just calls me childish and it really hurts. I still love legos, dolls and cartoons like Barbie, Miraculous, Winx club, Teenage mutant ninja turtles, Gumball and Penny, etc..

My fiance does not know anyone like this and we've gotten into fights over how much of a kid I am. I don't see why it's a bad thing, it's not a kink thing, I do not dress like a child nor do I believe I am one. I'm just a regular adult that likes to indulge in these kinds of things that I wasn't able to completely enjoy when I was a kid.

Any anons out there that still like toys or cartoons? If so does anyone know and how do they react?

Same, anon! After me family immigrated and I grew up, I now buy everything I want. It's such a good feeling.

>>455164
Aww, thank you anon! I was lucky to immigrate to a wealthy country, and now that I finished uni I'm buying all the toys I want, nothing is safe from me anymore haha. I really loved the new Barbie fashionista line, although I didn't buy anything from them because my space is limited at the moment. Thank you for the tip, I will definitely check her out!

Feeling toy deprived in the childhood is how I ended with a shopping addiction that I am trying to manage, haha. I do love a lot of my dolls and I will never let them go. I know it's stupid but it makes me so sad to think that one day I will die and they will remain and either get thrown into garbage or passed to someone else. It makes me feel strangely depressed, like there is no point to it all if it doesn't last.

Pic related is one of the Barbies I was absolutely obsessed about as a kid. I manage to buy one, but she's missing her accessories, so I hope one day I will get her MIB (and sell the extra).

Maybe you could make it your mission to find a way to donate your less-needed dolls to loving homes? There are organisations that aim to give toys to poor kids at Christmas etc
It's really good that you're free to enjoy whatever you want now, but it's important to strike a balance between having all these wonderful things that you can finally afford, or being trapped in a hoarders cave of dolls that you feel unable to part with. It's up to you whether that means investing in a biger space so that you can display your full collection, or whether that means you need to operate a one-in-one-out policy.

If any anons are collecting valuable or vintage pieces, you can look into keeping a catalog in your will so that relatives will know the value, or alternatively allocate funds so that they can be donated to specific toy museums etc.

There's now a doll general. 4chan has them, but the janitors on /toy/ don't do their job and the doll threads always go to hell.

I'm like you, OP. I never grew out of toys. I tried to force myself out of it during my teen years but failed. Thankfully my boyfriend is a big nerd, so he related. He's more into gundams and model kits though.

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.

What troons are doing are is that they are warping aspects of post-colonial and critical race theory to argue that biological sex isn't real in the non-Western world. Those disciplines actually criticise European social constructions of gender onto people of color. European colonization introduced Western gender roles to foreign cultures and used gendered concepts in colonization, even today non-white races are feminized or masculinized depending on how "threatening" they are to white people while whites themselves are seen as the default. This does not mean that people of color had no concept of biological sex, that's absolutely ridiculous but it's an easy way to sound smart on the internet - bringing up stuff people aren't knowledgeable about and guilting them over shit you just made up.

lol you can moralfag all you want but most of these factories aren't the slave labor shock video kind you see from the 80s. stuff is cheaper because china's living expenses are cheaper. in most areas making 500$USD a month is enough to put you in the middle class.

AFAIK China is at the point where it's outsourcing labor to shitty parts of India anyway. Honestly the whole huurduur slave labor thing is a meme from 1st worlders that don't understand how economies work. It really amuses me that americans especially (what with mexican immigrants/migrant workers coming here) still don't understand how shitty jobs help stimulate economy and can actually save peoples' lives. It's like people don't get the reason these slave wage jobs can pay so little is because the areas they're in are shit.

This shit is why men have such a huge tendency to feel entitled to women a zillion leagues above them. Regardless of what anyone says, Hollywood DOES impact people's perception of the real world. Their whole lives, men are exposed to movies showcasing male hypergamy, whether it's "geek gets the hottest girl in school" or "older man gets woman 20+ years younger than him". Meanwhile, whenever there's a movie about a geeky girl getting the hot guy, she always has to change EVERYTHING about herself before she is " worthy" of him. The message is clear that men are just entitled to hot women. Now, the real world result is incels committing mass shootings because they're learning the hard way that super hot girls aren't going to date their average boring assess when they have far superior options in reality. They could just, you know, lower their standards, but they've had it so deeply ingrained by the media that this is what they deserve.

Hollywood is such fucking trash.

The Biology Pill

Red and Pink pill both are only half truths. In reality, humans are just as bound by biology as any animal. Both stereotypical female and stereotypical male behaviours have basis in biology. Both sexes also have a minority of members who defy those stereotypes.

After supporting radical feminism for years, I ultimately became frustrated and disillusioned by women’s stubborn clinging to sexism and patriarchal roles. I started to research about biological differences between the sexes, and realized that contrary to what feminism insists, there is quickly growing mountain of evidence that much of this behaviour stems from nature, not nurture.

The Biology Pill could be summed up as:

>1. Overwhelming majority of women are inherently submissive towards men. Overwhelming majority of men are inherently dominant towards women. Patriarchy is simply the result of this hard-wired dynamic.


>2. Female subservience towards males in private (read: sex and relationships) can not be separated from female subservience towards males in public sphere (politics, business, etc). Private dynamics shape how the sexes interract in the world. By rewarding dominant, high-status, strong etc men with sex, women encourage men to seek high status, to act dominant, to become succesful, to boast their power etc in every area of life. Men on the other hand find all those traits repulsive in women and they reward women with opposite traits such as submission, meekness, low status, unambitious, weak etc. Women are therefore motivated to dumb themselves down and not seek to become ”better” in anything but very narrow accepted traits (beauty, housework, child care). This is what keeps patriarchy alive.


>3. There exists small minority within both sexes that does not comform to the stereotypical models. This includes many homosexuals, whose brains have been proven to contain opposite-sex traits (i.e. left vs right hemisphere size). Females on autism spectrum also have masculine brains. But there is a masculine-feminine spectrum in not just our brains, but in other parts of out physiology (such as hormones) and therefore, there is a minority of inherently ”masculine females” and ”feminine males” among neurotypical heterosexuals (and no, this isn’t about transgenderism).

>women are hypergamous
Then why do any evaluation of census marriages and wealth of partners actually show men and women to be equally hypergamous and geared toward marrying up?

The only part that was correct from the incel perspective was that in the US wealthy men tended to marry middling-but-pretty girls but now it's reverted back to men marrying among their own caste

Yeah this, if aggression and strength played as big a factor in human sexual selection as OP claims then humans would be way more sexually dimorphic but they actually decreased in dimorphism through evolution indicating that females did not want to breed with males with high levels of masculinization. Females have low levels of fertility so the males who were more physically similar and co-operative with them would have been allowed to breed with them more.

I mean, look at this shit:
>For women who enjoy submission (the vast, vast majority) living in patriarchy is not terrible. Why do you think almost all straight women hate radfems?
Men who use imageboards are NPCs. They all type the exact same way, and they have little to no original thoughts. It's pathetic how easy they are to spot, and hilarious how easy it is to impersonate them. Even the chosen OP image is an obvious choice, but he really thought he was doing something.

anon that doesn't even make sense, it's like saying you hate feet because some people have foot fetishes, or saying you hate asians because some people have an asian fetish. plus that you know most of the time it's short people (esp. short women) who are tall chasers right?

also, it seems like some short people believe that there's some tall conspiracy and we think ourselves superior to short people, which isn't true at all. it's probably mostly autistic people like you who can't detect obvious shitposting. mostly what we want is just for you to stop saying things like "wow, you're SO tall! how tall ARE you?"

Masochism. When I'm really depressed (usually when someone I liked was flirting with someone else in front of me or watching porn instead of asking me), I get aroused to feeling ashamed and worthless that my partner would rather do that instead of me.

Maybe mother nature has to make a decision to either
a. with humans never stopping having children, we'll evolve somehow to adapt to the higher temperatures and other things
b. not adapt us fast enough and wipe us all out with natural disasters and too high temperatures because we're a threat to all life in general

but even then maybe some will still survive and then natural selection can take a real good course finally instead of humans overpopulating mindlessly like idiots, humans can evolve and rebuild, only to inevitably fuck it all up again. Repeat.
