Am I the only one who lolcow is overly picky when it comes to pointing out flaws with girls posted here? They're terrible, I get it, but I see some girls on here that are genuinely cute being torn to shreds for their looks.

Here's a few:

I believe eugenics is a good thing and got a bad rep mostly because of the Nazis.

We should stop sending aid to Africa to appease our white guilt. It's fucking up their economy, work ethics and helps some shitty dictatorships stay in power. I know Europe is in large part responsible for the state Africa is in currently, but what we're doing now is still not helping.

America is responsible for the current immigration crisis in Europe, and it fucking infuriates me that republicans (who are the ones who supported the invasion of Iraq, which is the root of the situation here) and alt-right are now smugly using it as a prop for their anti-immigrant rhetoric and shitting on Europe for trying to solve the problems that someone else caused.

This isn't exactly an unpopular opinion here, but men are inferior and I seriously hope they will be gradually marginalized or even eradicated in the future.

99% of yaoi is shitty and 100% of fujos are shit. That includes also M/M writes, who, as evidenced by the author cows thread, are particularly milky breed.

I'm getting really tired of girls online with severe cases of GOTIS. I'm actually not talking about titty streamers, cosgirls like Momo and Jnigri (don't know if she's still relevant, don't follow them but she was the first one to get really big) or similar people who are clearly only doing it as a schtick to pull in views/money and don't exactly hide it, and I'm not talking about 14 year old kiddies.

I mean people who pick cutesy usernames like Ashl3yk1nz or PinkUnicornBunny420, talk in a very forced soft and high pitched voice during streams or in voice chat, use cutesy graphics and emoticons, constantly post selfies on discord to fish for compliments, giggle all the time and obviously do everything in their power to get attention from thirsty males by screaming 'notice me, I'm a girl on the internet!' It just feels very fake and like they're overcompensating for something else, most of the time they don't even play that many games or participate more than superficially. On top of that a good number of them try to be silly and randum XD which becomes extremely annoying and old really fast.

I've seen plenty of female members of gaming/streamer communities post normal photos, have normal usernames and normal conversations in their normal tone of voice, some of them are more girly and some less but all of them act like adults and not thirsty womanchildren. Don't see why it's so hard to grasp.

Eventually, I hope, medical science will be advanced enough that pre-conception and prenatal eugenics will be standard, in the terms of both "compassionate" elimination and genetic modification. They'll just think up some new acceptable term for it.

Go to your GP for your yearly checkup and ask them. Worst case scenario (psychosis) you will probably be able to get temporary treatment (meds, community resources) and referrals to someone who can help (therapist/psych).

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.

I’ve been there anon. The obsession stems from emotional support you’re not receiving anywhere else. Sorry to hear you’re struggling. I wouldnt trust anyone with that information if I were you but just so you know, if you’ve found one person who has been through the same issues as you, you will find another. There are a lot more people around with the same secrets as you than you might expect.

i still hate-stalk an ex i had when i was 17. he was 25 and fucking me, a minor, on the side while still being in a relationship with a butterface, good Christian girl. he broke my heart twice, and after the second time, i would obsessively text him long rants about how terrible he was and what an abuser he was, etc. i found his reddit and waited months for him to even allude to my existence. when he did, it was in reply to someone's thread asking how to get over an ex. he said, "work out. DON'T FUCK YOUR CRAZY FUCKBUDDY. talk to friends. DON'T FUCK YOUR CRAZY FUCKBUDDY." and so on. when the OP replied to his comment asking for the story about the crazy fuck-buddy and why you shouldn't fuck her, i got to it first, saying "you shouldn't fuck her because she's underage. but if you DO decide to fuck her, just make sure you have a job secured in the next state over under your actual girlfriend's daddy's thumb. that way you can skip town real quick after you decide to end things."

the next day after i replied to his comment, he posted a thread asking how to get Butterface Christian Girl back. he said he'd called her a cunt and she'd broken up with him, but that she thought she was pregnant as well. i found her FB and sent her a long-winded message about how he's a predator and manipulated and abused me for about a year while he lived in my state, all the while keeping her around as well. she read it and never replied.

they are still together to this day.

It's amazing how girls get tunnel vision about men.
I read something on an older woman's account. Guys would keep having affairs with her. When she found out she'd try and contact the girlfriends. All of the women ignored her warnings and one even married the guy after knowing he was cheating. Some nice sub-zero standards there, or the denial is strong, not sure.
I have actually written a kindly worded message to a girl I could see going through the same manipulative bullshit I did from a guy. Of course she deleted it and continued going through the manipulative bullshit.

Maybe they just think the guy is in HIGH DEMAND and it makes them even more keen? Like completely missing the point of the warnings. Oh well enjoy getting abused I guesssss

There's this singer i have a crush on, who's dating a super young, but not very famous model.
At first i was kind of sad and jealous, but she's so pretty that i wanted to know more about her.
Sadly she's put her instagram on private. Now i've already made around 3 fake accounts to try to be able to follow her, but she never accepts…

Of course that's super creepy and obsessive, but i'll probably never meet her and as long as she doesn't know, it doesn't hurt her.
I don't even hate her, it's rather admiration; how awesome is she, that he dates her?
I'd want to be similar to her, because she's obviously very cute and she also seems popular, living a happy and exciting life.

(deep breath)

so my wonderful fiance and I are not family people. both came from shit families, mine abusive parental situation, his, a shitty narc mother and narc sisters who LIVE for drama. we are generally no contact with them.
we got engaged and one of his sisters sent me (not him!) a horrendous volatile message about how shit I was for not bending over and telling them the news.
at this time, his other sister was also pregnant with her 2nd child.
They all backed each other up on this, so I told them all where they could go and that they shouldn't waste their breath on us when we clearly have never wanted involvement with them.
I distinctly remember thinking, "karma will bite you in the fucking ass".

fast forward to the other day, his mother pops up on my recommended page, I click to block her and notice his sister (with kids) has set up some kind of trendy insta mom inspirational content instagram. i roll my eyes and go to her page to block her, and again i think "karma will get her" and as I think that, I see that she has set up this trendy insta not like the other moms page because her child was born with fucking dwarfism!!!!!! Like legitimate dwarfism!!! I was so shocked I didn't know how to respond so I laughed, like when people awkwardly laugh at funerals. Jesus christ, as insufferable as they all were before you bet they're all on their sympathy train now. i feel bad for the kid being spontaneously born with fucking dwarfism but the whole story is a fucking joke oh my god

sometimes i think i stay with my boyfriend so that i have another place to go whenever my grandparents that i live with die.

while i'm on the topic of the grandparents, there are times that i resent them. i have lived with them since i was 17 and i'm turning 20 this year. i also have a sibling who's 23 and whom had lived with them from ages 6-22. sometimes it really bothers me that my sibling is not the one here taking care of them, as they have no job and do not go to school anymore. i have both a full-time job and go to school part-time, but taking care of our grandparents is solely on me.

my grandmother had a knee replacement done on monday. since then i have just been thinking about how i feel like i will be stuck taking care of them well into my 20s, when i didn't even get to enjoy my teenage years for the last 2 years of high school. i feel like my life is just passing me by.

I hate everything about this girl I manage. She’s also not that good at her job. I act like her friend since it’s just easier to be nice with someone you work closely with, but I’m going to fire her in a couple months when I have more time.

Sometimes I feel guilty laughing and playing along with some of the shit she says, but if I was honest about what a piece of shit she is and she quit on me, it would make my job harder. Meh.

As inspired by the man-hating thread, how do you anons feel about an all-female society?

Some questions to get your creativity flowing:
>Where would you like it to be? On a tropical island? In a small village in Europe?
>What kinds of amenities would you like to have in the area?
>Would you set up a business in the area?
>What laws would you have in effect?
>In what ways could we be self-sufficient?
>Do you have any ideas for a currency? National anthem? Flag? Coat of arms?
>Any other kind of cultural details you'd like to encourage/discourage?
>What media about all-female societies inspires you?
>What do you think the benefits would be?
>What do you think the struggles would be?

Fantasy questions aside, do you think a society like this is actually possible?

Anyone else hate themselves for coming here and feel extremely pathetic?

At first I came here because it made me feel better about myself. I'm very much someone who obsesses over whether my life is "Instagram Worthy" or whatever and feel inferior when I see people my age or younger doing all sorts of cool shit I wish I was. Lolcows obviously have the opposite effect. Seeing someone be a train wreck on social media made me feel much better about myself. Plus, there's some influencers that drive me crazy and I felt the need to rant about.

Now, almost three years later, I get no more enjoyment out of it. I feel even more pathetic than before. No amount of making fun of them will actually improve me.

No. 234644

I think it depends on how much time you spend here and what you post.

Some comments here are valuable - like the anons that check in to offer helpful advice, useful links or interesting comments - so there's no reason to feel pathetic if you're leaving those posts.

Some posts are nitpicky bullshit about nasolabial lines left by anons who wil stay in that thread for six hours to defend their shitty post and clog up the site. Posts like that won't make the poster feel any better about themselves, they'll just sink lower.

No. 234647

I never came here “to feel better about myself” like a lot of anons claim. I’m here for the stories, basically, and the occasional cute insta pic or whatever. I don’t feel bad because I don’t see anything wrong with why I visit or how I interact with the site. I think maybe some people do it for the wrong reasons, though.

No. 234653

Are you me, OP? Although part of it for me is knowing I could have easily been a lolcow, had the Internet been more popular when I was younger (oldfag). I sit watching my kid sleep and thank my stars I avoided having my dramu chronicled. But yes, I hate that I do this sometimes.

Wtf, you sound just as embarrassing as the lolcows we gossip about.

I'm kind of in the same boat, coming here to shit on people when I'm no better than the people I rip on. I wouldn't say I obsess over being Instagram Worthy but I do kind of get down on myself for not having achieved more and sometimes come to lolcow to remind myself that I could be way worse.
