>What is an otome game?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otome_game
tl;dr, enjoy a beautiful 2D boy harem as either a girl (otome) or a 2D boy yourself (BL).

Discuss what you're playing now, what you're looking forward to, ask questions, talk merch, etc.

You can find a thorough FAQ and a lot of download links in halfchan's BL + otome general, but most of them are out of date or only in Japanese.

Please spoiler spoilers! CGs are fine unless it's an important plot point.

Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome is on Steam now, it's finally translated. As someone who's never bought my otome games through steam is the sexual stuff cut out? I thought Steam requires censoring for ecchi games, I remember seeing R18 voice cuts from that game on Tumblr.

Awesome, yup this was it. I bought it and played a couple of the routes, so far it's not bad. The voice acting makes it though, it doesn't seem like it has much to it story/character-wise. I would say wait for a sale, idk if otome games get discounted a lot but it falls a bit short of the $25 price tag. I'm glad sexier stuff is getting available to us now?

Update she was just really, really, and I mean really relaxed and calm the whole day.
She has arthritis and dementia, so she is always in pain/anxiety. The plus side to it was she had no pain all day, but it was way over the dose we have been starting her on.

i've done a fair amount of prescription opiates and benzos, amphetamines, weed, mushrooms, acid, dmt, salvia, sass, spice/k2, nitrous, some testing chemicals on accident…i think that's about it.

i regularly use cannabis in concentrate form, i prefer indica strains. it's just more convenient and plus my tolerance is fucked lol. i've been smoking concentrates everyday for about 5 years now.

i also like to trip 2 or 3 times a year on either shrooms or dmt. shrooms are my favorite

aaaand overall i think my favorite substances are cannabis obviously, morphine and dmt.

PULLtards are just lolcows who don't yield as much milk as say, Venus, Margo or the whores who visit hosts.

In the same vein, I just don't understand how so many men think being raped is the same thing as being badly beaten up or something.

I've never been raped but just imagining the utter violation and guilt… I would rather be beaten into a coma than be raped without a single bruise.

No. 209185

>>209179
>I just don't understand how so many men think being raped is the same thing as being badly beaten up or something.
I haven't seen anyone say the two are just as bad. But people do draw parallels. Assault is often used to force submission, and so is rape. The Tiberius rape scene from Spartacus comes to mind.

No. 209217

>>209179
I simply think a lot of men don't understand, that the trauma is worse.
The do get that it's painful and can also be very physically damaging, and still, i think i wrote about this on lolcow before:

My younger brother is a nice normal dude, but we still had a fight over him saying that being falsely accused of rape is mentally more damaging than the actual rape itself.

If you read some rape reports; one woman i think it was in Sweden being gang raped by refugees there at some times 3 of them were inside her - how could she ever trust any men again? Sometimes even the skin between vagina and anus rips, that's not something anybody can ever get over with. I'd go as far as to say that rape is somehow even worse than murder; it not only affects the victim, but also every single person they know, their future life, tge husband or children she may never have, because it's something that will torture her for the rest of her life.

A few months ago there was even this thread about a rape victim being allowed to commit assisted suicide

No. 209219

>>209217
I agree with many points but I don't feel that it is worse than murder. Murder does all of those things and on top of that it doesn't even allow the victim a chance at going on. I know many people are mentally destroyed by rape, but many others can cope and live a normal life. With murder, everyone is affected, but there's nothing that can even conceivably be done to help the victim.

Paper bag test?

>I'd go as far as to say that rape is somehow even worse than murder; it not only affects the victim, but also every single person they know, their future life, tge husband or children she may never have

Now that's just silly. Murder tends to put a hamper on her existing relationships too. Now I can't help but think of that professor some years back that tried to kill rape victims thinking he was helping.

Yay, spooky storytime!

When I was in my teens, my entire high school used to go on a camping trip together which was great because it always turned into a huge drug fest, but:

My friend Christa brought a Ouija board and we were fucking around with it. I remember this German exchange student that all the jock girls wanted to fuck joined us, and that was pretty funny but we were drinking and this other girl was writing down the letters in a notebook as it spelled shit out.

We asked for a spirit and waited. It dd that fast circling motion for a while, but no letters. Then all of a sudden it got very specific. There was all this weird talk about deer and deer season and the Bible. I so wish I still had this notebook page because I would totally take a picture but yeah.

Talking about deer season and then the Bible and about how all women are whores, telling us to stay away from whores and Ed or Eddie be a good boy(?) It got really weird because we were all like sixteen and not in any way thinking about weird shit like that. So we were asking who this spirit was and it kept spelling 'August' over and over again. You know how ouija boards can be super repetitive in the shit they spell out. Finally we got sick of it and tossed it in the corner.

A few years later I was telling this story to a friend and they were like come on, you don't know who it was? No.

It turns out that Ed Gein's mother was named Augusta. I officially signed off on those things after that.

This was before the internet, too, so coming by that knowledge would have been a lot tougher. It still creeps me out to this day.

Spent my entire educational career convincing myself I should be in STEM when math and science have consistently been my worst subjects. Somehow convinced myself I had a passion for those subjects. I entered uni thinking I'd get my bsc in X STEM degree and go on to grad school.

I've recently graduated and have been working in research for the past two years. I hate my job and hate what I majored in. My adviser has been pressuring me to go to grad school for months now and I feel so shitty for letting her down. I just feel so disillusioned with my life and have no idea what career to pursue.

No. 207757

Don't go to grad school right away. Take some time off to figure out what you want to do. Maybe there are some things you have in mind that feel decent. If you find out what you actually want to do, go to grad school for that and not a STEM field.

I want to start a second life.

I've always had a baby face so I can easily look like a 17-year-old again.
I've got a second laptop.
I'm going to get a second phone, a second wallet, start a new tumblr, Facebook, etc.

I've memorized my new name, my new birthday, my new parents names, my new childhood memories.

I'm going to start going to anime conventions out of state where no one will know me and make new groups of friends.

Has anyone ever done this before?
Anyone have advice?
Is there a proper name for this?

Perhaps there's something omitted by her family? Her mother remarried, perhaps she was unwanted or abused in the new union, or even there was some other unconnected reason and the breakup of her family was the last straw for why she was holding off her escape

Didn't see a thread like this so let's start
I have a little cousin and with holidays and stuff we all ate together
Randomly he just says "Hey, auntie (my mom, while she was cooking), your profiteroles looks like the poo! Elsa eats poo!"
We just went the fuck? But didn't really thought about it.
Later in the noon, I find him watching these videos.
Maybe i'm later to the party but my feed on youtube is "clean" from this shit so I didn't know a single thing.

Why are they doing this? To me it's look like some fetish masked as "kids humor"!!

So I've done some research and found the world of toy reviewers and I could say that some of them are enjoyable (Cookieswirl may have an annoying voice but I find her videos cute ) but the others are the same over and over
Spider man and elsa pooping, birthing, eating shit, syringes, decapitation in the thumbnails.
Just why
YouTube clearly states that if you're under 13, the site is not for you so why they're allowing this madness?

THANK YOU

Please, don't ban me for this necro, but I need answers. Does anyone been able to find out anything about this? Detective anon-sama?

Have these videos/channels been demonetized with the adpocalipse? Whose agenda is this? I doubt it that it is for the views only. I imagine that there's a group of people imploying youtubers like IT'S ETHAN to make content like this and then spam it on multiple channels using bots. It seems to me that all the channels are using similar colors, themes and props, like it's a brand.

How is it possible it isn't banned and IT'S BEEN A YEAR? How is it that you get this aids within the first 3 results if you search for ANY letter on youtube? Can we do anything about it?(Not your personal army)

I know this isn't related to creepy Elsa or whatever, but there's definitely been cases of pedophiles making Youtube "challenges" aimed at children to make fetish videos in disguise.
