Are there any types of mental illnesses you steer clear away from people for having? Not the really hardcore shit like psychopathy or sociopathy, but things that people would label you as ableist for refusing to get close to someone for having.

I've been burned too many times by people with Borderline (or who check off every symptom if they're undiagnosed). The disorder is literally just a cluster of toxic traits. They're simply not capable of being healthy people to have in your life. One of the traits of the disorder is that they will act totally obsessed with you then drop you abruptly for little to no reason, usually in a really dramatic OTT way. I just can't deal with someone who has a personality disorder that is defined by a trait like that. It stays with me for years when people pull that shit and now when people are super enthusiastic about our friendship, I get worried they're going to do that. Even when they don't even have BPD. And don't even get me started on the other traits involved with that disorder.

I also can't deal with people who have EDs, whether it's one involving weight loss or weight gain. It would be one thing if they only applied their deluded view of weight to themselves, but they almost always have to drag other people into their sickness. I want nothing to do with someone who tries to make me feel like a fat sack of lard when I'm a twig. Or who insists I look better overweight than I did at a healthy size.

People with depression issues who can't get their shit together. I fall into this category, but am working hard to get out of it. I can't be around hyper-negative people who complain about their problems constantly and let their mindset cripple them long-term from any advancement, especially when I'm fighting to NOT be like that. I also don't like feeling like my main purpose in someone's life is to be the person they dump everything on.

Autists. I know this one is just mean, but being friends with them is painfully awkward. You have to be uncomfortably blunt because they don't get even the most obvious hints, plus they tend to have no filter and say incredibly mean and/or offensive shit. I'm always so anxious about introducing my autistic friends to people because they pretty much always embarrass the fuck out of me. Here's just a few of the gems of examples I have of them doing so:

I should probably mention that that was only one person, and most of the people in the group thought that was bad, even the anorexic and autistic. Idk if anyone was able to get her to visit her sister though as that kind of talk was pretty triggering for some so we all agreed to not talk about it or any kind of 'suicide attempt shaming' anymore. I'd like to think someone took her aside to talk after the meeting tho.

I feel your pain anon. I've been abused by multiple BPD people because I'm the type of personality they find easy to exploit so I have an immense fear of them and I'm constantly paranoid about developing the disorder myself. They're literally the worst people you could find and the most awful thing is that they could be helped with therapy but their sense of illness (or self-awareness for that matter) seems to be nonexistent and they often refuse any treatment. They can be so vicious that the emotional scars they leave will last a long time.

No. 253299

The emotional abuse I've suffered from people with BPD was more traumatic than the physical abuse and molestation I went through as a kid. I was able to move on from those pretty decently, but I'm still fucked up from the BPD horror shows I've dealt with.

No. 253309

Same! I also experienced a lot of trauma with narcissists also.
I had a gay male friend that wrecked havock on my self esteem, and when he ditched me for more exciting friends, a girl with borderline cane in and out of my life over the years and fucked with me. I should have said fuck off, but she was so convincing and I was lonely. Now I have trouble trusting anyone.

There's a plastic surgery thread already if you're just talking about types of plastic surgery you want, but this one is about girls who have gotten plastic surgery, and deny it despite it being extremely obvious they did, and the men, and in rare cases women, who defend that person and claim they're never been touched by a surgeon. There's also men who go on and claim about how they hate plastic surgery so much, then go on and fap to girls who have had plastic surgery, this can range anyone from LA women with big butts, latina women who have had fat injections, or the east asians who get tons of lipo and make themselves look nothing like who they were before. Basically men's logic is that any plastic surgery that isn't obvious or botched is 100% natural, what do you think about this anons? Have you had any personal experiences with anyone who has thought this way?

pic related, it's yanet garcia, who everyone claims her butt is from "hard work at the gym" but she went from flat butt to rounded big butt overnight and her thighs didn't grow one bit

I think plastic surgery should be okay for people who really suffer from their looks. There was a girl in elementary I went to school with and she was always bullied for her very prominent ears. She did surgery and the bullying stopped too. However, there are also cases like the one of my cousin, where people overdo it. She goes to "beauty clinics" (clinic is not a trademark here and anyone can call his establishment a clinic) to boost up her lips. One day she told me how she wanted to cut her calves because she feels too overweight.
The thing is there is nothing wrong with her. She is very good looking but she does not listen.

She looks like a mix between Jennifer Lawrence and Liv Tyler now. Before surgery she looks pretty meh but not ugly. Just meh as fuck.

I do overall love all the current Hadid siblings' faces tbh. They look gorgeous.

That particular before pic of Ivanka looks really fugly but there are some other ones that I don't mind. She looks so plastic now. Don't think she improved her look by making is equally wonky but now hella fake on top of wonky.

I’ve never done real old school MDMA, the x they sell here is all mephedrone or other cut bullshit. I’m looking forward to it because just recently in the US, they’ve begun trials for treating PTSD/treatment resistant anxiety with MDMA, which would be so amazing. Google MDMA and MAPS to learn more, it’s pretty fascinating the positive effect it has on people’s lives.

My favorite drug is shrooms, love the whole experience from beginning to end. Does anyone else here have trouble looking at themselves in the mirror while they're tripping? I can’t handle it at all, lol.

No. 253165

I'm a different person but I have some tips. don't try to buy shrooms online. it's highly illegal and too risky when you can easily cultivate them yourself. look up different techs, try Shroomery.org

all you really need is spore syringes, sterilized substrate bags, a closet, and a few other items like jars, water, and sugar. you can buy sterile substrate bags for mushroom growing legally on a bunch of sites, it will be advertised for edible mushrooms. spore syringes are also legal to buy. South American cubensis is the most common type in my experience.

it's honestly so easy to grow them yourself and it's fun.

Mail guy delievered my pills that day, but when I open up the box, I notice there's three little plastic bags with dry shrooms (1g each) along with the bottle of pills. Sometimes, the girl whom I buy these sends customers these lil gifts. So I have this friend who's really experienced on the shroom, and he believes the shroom is like a living entity; once, I was telling him how the shroom has cured my depression fully, but wasn't really helping much with my adhd, so he goes: "Oh, you know, I once took 2g of shrooms and I was able to concentrate real hard". So I sent a picture of my gift to him, telling him "Look, imma try and take those 2g today!". So I go to the kitchen and eat the 2g (I think that was at 4pm). So I go back to my room and he sent me back a message (after I ate): "Are you really gonna eat those?" and I'm like "yeah, I already ate them" so he goes "oh, well, good trip". I flipped a bit ofc, but I wasn't scared. Anyway, the psychedelic effects start to kick in after around 40 minutes, and I start feeling euphoric and happy. So there's this guy I am (or was) friends with since high school. I've always liked him, but due to my… um, I don't know what's the word. Due to my inability to feel confortable with human touch/sexual interaction, we've never had anything more than friendship. Anyway, I started texting him, because I was feeling an infinite love and I wanted to share that moment with him, so I tried to explain the situation. I know, this was a bad idea. I had no clue how much I craved for him until that moment. Anyway, he was probably thinking I was an irresponsible brat but I didn't care, I just wanted him to understand how much I liked him. The thing is, I didn't use the word "like" because, at that moment, I felt like this was such a weak word to represent my love. So I tried telling him that I felt like our connection was really intense. Ofc he didn't understand shit, also he didn't give a fuck <- I realized how much he didn't care, so I started to get paranoid and then, I felt like my organs were overflowing with sourness, I also felt like there was sourness under my skin and inside my mouth, it was so intense and cruel, at this point I was crying like crazy. Anyway, I told him that I entered a bad trip and I didn't know why, but then he was like "oh, well, I'm sorry to hear that, but I gotta go do [I don't remember what], don't Post too long.

For all discussion of gender critical thinking and general trans criticism.

Previous thread >>231926

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. Gender critical 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.

Transgenderism 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.

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 sexuality, misogyny, and misandry.

Children as young as four are being asked by their 'trans-friendly' primary school to inform on anyone calling transgender pupils by the 'wrong' pronoun.

The policy at Arbury Primary in Cambridge states that it is 'illegal' to call someone 'he/she' or 'it' against their wishes.

The school also urges parents of children who no longer identify as their biological gender to consider changing their name by deed poll.

Arbury holds assemblies to celebrate a child's 'transition' from a boy to a girl or vice versa, has introduced a gender-neutral uniform, and allows children to use lavatories of whichever sex they 'assign' themselves to.

The warning on 'misgendering' comes on the school website. A brightly coloured page entitled How To Be Trans Friendly features cartoons of smiling children surrounded by rainbows.

It states: 'Calling someone he/she, it or deliberately the wrong pronoun is unkind, and illegal. If you hear or see this type of language being used challenge or report it.'

Elsewhere, the guidance says: 'Trans children will understand the difference between a genuine mistake and something deliberate in relation to names and pronouns.'

The statement that misgendering is illegal may be based on the school's interpretation of the 2010 Equalities Act, which suggests that a hate crime takes place when a member of a minority perceives one to have happened.

I don't know whether to get Dark Souls Remastered or not.

I have dark souls 2 and 3 in my steam library and Bloodborne in my playstation library. I only played DS PtD pirated and that was two years after it was released, so I was hoping to get in with the recent remaster on the launch and the revived userbase.

But now there are hackers going rampant so my main reason for buying this are iffy with lots of negative reviews.

If I had the 20$ discount, I would have bought it pronto but giving 40$ for a patch seems like throwing away money and I'd much rather buy Kingdom Come in that case and buy the remaster later on sale or from a key shop.

Could someone give me their honest opinion on DSR if you've played it?

This is a good example of how a lot of artists are. At first glance it looks really good. Then you look again…what's going on with the chest? Why is one eye noticeably larger than the other? What's going on with the neck and collarbone?

They have really good "rendering" skill, that is color and light, but less skill in other areas. In the comic world they would do the colors while someone else did the inking/lines.

ITT we discuss our times having unhealthy obsessions with people. It can be any kind of obsession; romantic, hateful, wanting to wear their skin, etc.

I have an extreme tendency to cyber stalk girls I strongly dislike. The first girl I did this with was my ex best friend as a teenager. I actually found her tumblr recently and she had a few posts that seemed to be referencing me, even though it had been many years since I last contacted her.

There's been a few other girls I watch a lot online. Usually when one enters my interest, they stay there for a really long time until they start to bore me. I stalked the previously mentioned girl for 11 years and there's one who I have been for 7. Everyone else is much more recent, though.

I also stalk a few social media "influencers". It always starts out with me liking them too much and concocting this bizarre narrative of how we would be friends, but then as time goes by I start to dislike them quite a bit. I compete with them, at least in my head. With a couple of them, it's gotten so extreme that I'll have brief delusional episodes where I forget I'm not actually in their social sphere and they have no idea I even exist.

Same, I love it. I found a acquaintance from college's tumblr, instagram and twitter because a mutual friend advertised his twitter on fb. I found the guy because they were mutuals on twitter and he posts the dumbest shit ever. Some of these things could even be compromising, especially because he uses selfies as profile picture and his first name everywhere. Now I know way too much about this guy and it's hilarious. If he didn't use a selfie for his pp I would never have found out. He vague-posted about me and friends some years ago on his tumblr, that was pretty funny too because he's way worse than he thinks he is.

I have a friend who does the same stupid shit of posting selfies and her real name everywhere, as well as using the same IDs everywhere, and because we're mutuals on some websites I managed to find a bunch of acquaintances' twitter or tumblr. But usually they don't post anything special.

I also found relatively old and well-hidden photos of a guy I like a lot thanks to the power of google and fb and I found out what he looked like without facial hair and long hair, among other things. It was weird.

>They just get cringier and cringier and I wish I had other people to talk about them with.

Sometimes I’ll look up people I don’t talk to anymore bc I’m wondering how they’re doing in life.

I actually found that one of my friends that I had a major falling out with had died when I went to reconnect with them on Facebook. I wanted to apologize for what went down and saw their page was set as “memorial.” I hadn’t spoken to them in a year and I wanted to right what went wrong. I was just 4 months too late. Their death has haunted me since. It’s one of my biggest regrets in life. A year later I found that they had committed suicide. I still don’t know why. Had I contacted them sooner, I feel like it might not have turned out like this. Unhealthy mindset, but I wish I could have just talked to them.
