How is this shit allowed? Alot of shitty parents these days are pushing their trashy lifestyle choices on their children, let them be kids! It seems everyone on social media thinks it's cute to dress their babies up like Instagram thots and fuckboys. Are there any normal people left in this goddamn world??
Why does everyone want their kids to grow up so fast? This is a pretty disturbing trend.

He is an evil man, and very rich. People want money

There are a lot of protests for stupid shit, he funds a lot of them. How does the leader of BLM fly around when he doesn't even have a job and is supposedly poor like the rest of the black community? You can find some of these ads on craigslist as well.

He uses people through money to portray a message, a lot of the SJW crap is funded by him. What goes on the news is CHOSEN, and the news reporters are biased. Eg. why doesn't monsanto(?) protests get publish at all? They are all in bed with each other.

He alongside the top banking ogliarches were banned from Russia, hence why you see so much RUSSHA HACKD DA ELEKSHUNZ crap going on. He wants to set up a central banking system for the Rothschilds in Russia, its how they control countries, they can control the currency, and have war happen, which will devalue the currency, and they will buy large amounts of it, and then have the country restored and currency brought back up, and they will make lots of money that way.

If you did economics, he should be mentioned there, for making millions from low value currency.

why is it always trashy wannabes who think starbucks is "fancy"??

No. 202543

it started with normal business class men and women just grabbing a cup of starbucks everyday before work, then it became a girly thing to have some nice girly time and bring all your friends to the cafe and enjoy a drink and pastry, then it became a tumblr aesthetic thing, a comfy thing, a hippie liberal thing, a ~kawaii~ thing, so people think that their white cup with the green mermaid circle on it is a status thing that they can pay 3.25 for a cup of coffee or however the fuck much it costs, when in reality it's as normal as coca cola now

pretty much
it annoys the hell out of me when they find some rando girl, a lot of the time unnaturally pale, slim and covered in makeup like anzu, rose, katya, etc, and make a huge trap meme out of them, so much to the point where if anyone makes a comment about them some trap-chaser would "remind" you they're a trap and they will often get away with so much shit a normal woman can't get away with without being bashed (acne, razor bumps, wearing lots of makeup, crappy hair, anorexia, being flat,being basic etc etc) it's not that traps are physically more attractive than a woman, it's that they are so set on what they look like that they don't see them for what they are

another thing i want to bring up is that a lot of the people in the community are pedo as fuck, they will post pics of little girls, call them traps or talk about how they need to be made traps at a young age

No. 201464

Ngl there are some who are pretty cute. I'm bi and have a big thing for small, thin, pretty men and I'm really into the few of these guys who can actually pull it off.

That said, I totally agree with >>201191. A lot of these guys are just straight up fetishists or misogynists. Recurring trend among ugly wannabe traps is that they're wierdass looking men who can't get a girlfriend while presenting as male, so they become a ~*kawaii anime trap*~ and settle for hooking up with other traps. It's basically a circle of men who convinced themselves they're better at being women than actual women, and are willing to go gay to prove it, lmao

No. 202461

I used to browse /r9k/ a few years back because I liked reading all the sad stories. After it went to shit around about 2014-2015, there were way more "trap" threads. A lot of these threads were pretty explicit about recruiting, saying it was much easier to be a woman, that if you took hormones you could be a cute girl and have female privilege, that guys didn't demand you have social skills and you would be able to find somebody to love you and support you financially. These threads blew up, and a lot of people started posting pictures of themselves and posting progress on HRT. Men who wanted to have sex with teenage trans girls encouraged teens to transition and attempted to get their contact information.

Trans activism has sort of worried me ever since. It doesn't bother me when people attempt to erase gender norms altogether, but telling people that gender identity is congenitally determined, immutable, and will cause intense dysphoria if you don't transition when you're young scares me. It seemed like some trans people were at least partially interested in feminization fetishism and social benefits, and it seemed like that sort of thing was plenty capable of spreading. Considering transgender suicide rates, it seems like transitioning "going viral" could set off a suicide epidemic. Also, I feel intense loathing for the people trying to convince isolated young men to transition for sexual gratification.

At this point, I'm unsure if it was a good idea to make trans identities a front in the culture war before scholarly consensus emerged on their nature and origin.

I don't believe racism is a political belief, I guess I just spoke out of turn? I don't know. I don't care if someone gets fired from their job if they go to a Nazi rally or they can't keep themselves from being a /pol/ shiller on Facebook. I think their employer has every right to do that and I wouldn't want a Nazi to be working for me.

I guess I just feel like witch hunts can easily become something where people attack others just to avoid being attacked themselves. But I think that whatever my opinions are, I won't be talking about them anymore. I think I will just have to agree and go with the crowd about it and not pipe up with dissenting thoughts, lest I be eaten alive again.

i lost and am losing a ton of hair because of the medication i take. if its genetic or hormonal there's honestly not anything you can do (unless you buy into rogaine hype which i don't personally). if it's nutrition related, start taking a multivitamin. if it's damage related, stop doing the thing that's damaging. that's about it. sorry if i sound salty af, its just something that frustrates me because its been a problem for so long and has so few solutions.

right now i manage by keeping my hair in a short bob to hide the lack of density, but i'm thinking about investing in some extensions when i have the money.

No. 202340

Thyroid issues made me lose a lot of hair.
Because my hair is dark and my scalp pale you could really see the thinning hairline
I now use Toppik fibers to ''fill in'' that area
there are a lot of videos about it on youtube
it's not a regrowing solution but a temporary hiding it solution and it has no negative effect on actual regrowing hair (like some other products) it's just a bunch of sheep fibers.

fuck if I can help. I've always just been flat. Horribly, horribly flat. Nothing ever sounds good when I sing.

No. 202229

I haven't taken proper singing classes since I was 16 and in my high school's choir, but most of what I remember from then + videos I've watched since is:

>sit/stand up straight (roll your shoulders and move/massage your face to release tension first)

>breathe into your whole body (shoulders shouldn't rise, rather your stomach, sides, and even back should expand)
>open mouth wide enough for two fingers to fit vertically between your teeth
>soft palate (soft part of the roof of your mouth, toward the back) should lift when you sing (and your soft palate lifts when you yawn so you can do that to find it)
>the more you exercise your voice, the stronger it will become

I can't remember much else because I haven't sung seriously in years. The part about exercising your voice is pretty important though – I remember my freshman year of high school my voice was pretty strong by the end of the year. Then I didn't sing at all during the summer and tried to sing with the same intensity as before when I resumed school in the fall – my throat was SO sore after that because the muscles had weakened.

No. 202246

What actually makes a good singer is an interesting question. >>202229 is all reasonable advice, but you can follow it perfectly and still sound boring. I've heard plenty of singers with perfect technique who I just don't want to listen to. On the other hand, there are lots of very 'bad' singers who do sound like something you want to hear. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLq7Aqd_H7g for example, Leonard Cohen is an awful singer technically speaking, however if you listen to one of the many covers of his songs by technically good singers, the songs just sound boring and you go back to listening to his original version. Other examples include Bob Dylan, Arcade Fire, Jimi Hendrix etc etc…

So it's hard to say what makes a good singer good. The best I can come up with is to only train your voice in order to, for example, not damage it in any way with bad technique, and otherwise focus on sounding interesting rather than 'good'.

No. 202249

I'm not good at singing at all but my mom sings jazz and soul in a couple of bands and she's a really great singer.
What I mostly learned from her is that (younger) girls who want to sing either stay in their comfort zone too much when it comes to reaching notes, or they overdo it trying to impress people and trying to imitate the fancy singing styles of professional girls they hear in songs.
It's probably best to take lessons before making those mistakes or learning it the wrong way. You can damage your voice by singing a lot with the wrong technique.

No. 202252

Very good point, I'm >>202229 and my voice is really boring. Which is fine because I usually sang in groups but it's not the only type of "good" singing. I love The Violent Femmes and Car Seat Headrest and their leads are technically awful singers, but it works for their music.

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?

Go back to school. Get a GED or whatever equivalent you've got if you're not in the US. Work PT to support yourself/your hobbies and to get experience while you're studying. You're not "too smart" for anything. Your perceived intelligence won't get you very far without some formal education/marketable skills.

Depending on where you live and what languages you speak, you can be an ESL/EFL tutor/teach other languages you know/work as a freelance translator. You have many skills, yeah? Are they marketable and in demand? You might be shooting for the wrong things if you're SOL with all these desirable traits under your belt.

What kind of meals do you have on the keto diet? I always find I have no imagination when it comes to low or no carb foods. I hate fish and most meat too so it's harder.

No. 202067

Well I am a picky eater, so a lot of my meals consist of some lunch meat usually roast beef or ham because they tend to be lower in carbs than turkey, some cheese, typically sharp cheddar, mustard, pickles, and a couple of strawberries. My husband who eats anything though eats salads with lettuce, ranch (lowest in carbs we can find), cheese, ham, and some Whisps, which are basically crackers made entirely of cheese, in place of croutons. Eggs are also awesome on keto if you like them, I don't though so I stick to my typical meal a lot.
But really, it isn't as hard as some people make it out to be, just check every nutrition label for carbs and always subtract the dietary fiber for your net carb total and try to stay under 20g net carbs a day.
Ooh, and pork rinds! I eat them a lot with french onion dip as a snack.
Also, green beans are a fave of mine, 2g net carbs for 1/2 cup, that with some beef roast is awesome. And taco bowls!

Lower your body fat percentage, that's all. Drop to a lower BMI, or go through bulking and cutting cycles so you can stay around BMI 21 but with a lower body fat percentage. Growing your pecs will only make your boobs perkier, you can't spot reduce.
