Oh I’ve read about this case, didn’t know Frank Olsen had a kid.

There’s also a Netflix series about the murder of a nun from a Maryland private school as a cover-up for their pedo-agenda and that case leads directly to the Vatican.

Hearing people talk about conspiracy theories usually makes me cringe, but God, could it be called a 'theory' at this point? Just go to Wikipedia and type in the names of 10 major corporations, government institutions or influential organizations off the top of your head and surprise surprise, what rare demographic of people does the leader/CEO/chairman belong to? Yeah, you probably already guessed it.

I don't even know if they are somehow connected to some "Illuminati" or to "the Freemasons" or whatever and to be honest I'm not even gonna pretend to know, but it can't be denied how influential these people are.

Is it just me or does it seem like everyone is sexually obsessed with teens? Through my experience when I was a teen I got cat called and sexually harrassed 9/10 times by much older men. On every porn website teens are the most popular catagory, I'm sure everyone knows that one creep that wants to bone a 15 year old. In my gaming circle I have a friend that is a 4 channer that basically likes child porn (no surprise) he justifies it by saying it's ok that 15-18 year olds are getting fucked. My bf also told me that one of his aquintances said "imagine how tight a 13 year old would be, hey I'm just sayin what everyone is thinking". Lmao ya if you're a pedophile. I also feel like hollywood is adding on to this by casting teen girls with 30+ yr old love interests, I know they've been doing this forever but still. Wtf is so desirable and lustful about undeveloped kids? It's pretty damn disgusting how people love preying on them. Thoughts?

To be fair there, if you're having issues that aren't in a doctors specialty, they should refer you to a specialist. Menstrual issues aren't always simple things, if they're past the extremely common and obvious stuff.

100% of patients they see have hearts, I'd still expect a referral to a cardiologist if I'm having heart issues.

No. 215142

same, I've heard more molestation stories with pediatricians than I've heard with gynos

given, I've heard horror stories of gynos being little ignorant shitheads, but as odd as it may sound I'd rather be called fat or flat chested than to get molested, then again it would be hard to molest someone when your job is to pretty much feel their tits and go in their vag, but people can definitely be creepy and gross about it

No. 215145

I honestly imagine gyno's can be a bit blunt just because of how desensitized they get to it. They do the same routine shit with the same parts of the same anatomical structures the vast majority of the time, so it's not a big deal to them, and I think that sometimes comes out in the way they talk.

Same happens in other fields sometimes too, my GP made a joke about the shape of my occipital lobe to me, and it was no big deal, because it's just a brain, no-one's insecure about that. The areas a gynecologist works with are more likely to be sources of insecurity, or are a bigger deal to most people than pretty much any other organ.

I'm sure surgeons make jokes that would be incredibly fucking creepy if literally anyone else said, but they're desensitised to that shit, so I'd assume they'd make jokes about it without realising that it could be inappropriate.

Just my theory at least.

No. 215146

well it's not exactly making jokes that I'm worried about, it's in cases like >>209924 where gynos would just ignore patients problems and pin it on them, like some gynos refuse to inspect smaller breasts for some weird reason and some will comment on the patients entire body rather than just their vaginal area

No. 215149

I think there's a good chance they're misreporting that story, based on them showing a pretty big bias, but even if it's all true, one dumb question doesn't necessarily mean much of anything past that interaction being shit.

I don't get how they got from "have you tried X specific sort of exercise" to "You should buy a treadmill" though, barely anyone who runs on treadmills owns one.

Everything related to Yuri was the scariest and most interesting. The scene of her staring at you with those crazy eyes made me extremely uncomfortable and it felt like it lasted forever. The messed up poems she gives you, the unsettling dialogue she gives during her route, masturbating with a pen she stole from you, and finally you being locked in with her decomposing corpse over the weekend. I think If they dropped Monika and made Yuri the main "antagonist", it would've worked better. Her psychotic behavior didn't seem to have a purpose now.

Anons who are saying they are disappointed in storyline, DDLC was never supposed to be their big project - as they are still working on their story-heavy VN as seen here >>212277

Basically DDLC is like both a) an advertisement for their studio and b) a teaser for their upcoming serious project.

That's why it's so short and there is tons of sneak peaks of the real deal, like the constant third eye mentions and hidden files that lead to stuff like http://www.projectlibitina.com/

Even the lead developer stated he didn't expect for DDLC to blow up that much.

I used to be extremely trans-supportive. But after a few years of watching the constant e-begging, whinging, making everything about them, and hatred of cis women I'm well over it.

I was lucky enough to date a trans woman who was actually really normal, but years of incredibly negative representation just… broke me. A lot of it is just mental masturbation and whinging about how hard it is to not be a ~hot girl~. Most of these "women" were born white men, the demographic that statistically have it the easiest.

I especially hate how they undermine the actual struggle of being a woman. They claim they stand with us but belittle us constantly solely for being women.

I get so uncomfortable when they dress abormally provocative in ways that the majority of cis women wouldn't dress out of genuine FEAR. They will have their nipples out for attention, while real women have been taught to hate themselves for so long that we would get shamed for doing anything of the sort.

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.

Idk if it has anything to do with my motivation but my friends hate e-famers. Hate. I was at an event where there was another e-famous Lolita I admire and I was going to compliment her on her coords and ask where her headdress was from, but the friends I was with started bitching like "ughhh but I hate her she thinks she's so great get better taste" even though she's probably the least vain e-famer I follow. Funny story, she followed me on insta after the event, I got excited and it slipped out of my mouth and my friends were just like "ok, why do you care?".

I want to be well-known and admired but what if my friends start bitching about me, too?

Haha man I have issues, I'm going to wrap up this rant now.

No. 214733

Alright, weird as fuck confession time because reading this thread has made me feel a little better haha.
So a couple of months ago I found this girl being talked about on an oldish thread here at lolcow. She looked really familiar and I realized she was actually the ex of someone I dated over a year ago. A couple of people were saying how she bullied them or generally said mean stuff, a lot of it sounded exactly like some of the stuff she said to me. A mutual friend told me that she said things because my bf at the time/her ex told her I was saying all kinds of horrible stuff about her. I didn't believe it at the time but looking back it's 100% believable.
Anyways, All of the sudden I started seeing her everywhere, it looks like she has some people who don't like her on cgl as well. She also started popping up on my instagram feed, turns out she has a big following. It all just had a really strange feeling, like she was showing up everywhere I looked all of the sudden.
Here's the probably weirdest part, despite her talking trash on me and despite seeing multiple people say she said the same things to them, I have the strangest urge to befriend her for some reason. Like, I keep looking at her Instagram and facebook, probably more than I should. She's really cute and stylish and we seem to type in almost the exact same way, say and post about a lot of similar things. I just have this strange overwhelming urge to message her and apologize for the whole misunderstanding. It's highly frustrating because I'm normally way more rational about things, and I know logically that doing that would probably just kick up old drama. It's just frustrating as fuck that someone I actually think is really cool thinks I've said all these awful things about her. Rationally she probably is way over it and I'm the only one obsessing over this, what is wrong with me????????

No. 214735


I know that instagram is connected to Facebook so what probably happened is Google/Facebook/Instagram figured out that you had recently spoken or typed or talked about this chick, then suddenly started giving recommendations that you like her stuff or be friends with her on Facebook because of that. I know it sounds weird but it's been exposed online that Facebook listens to keywords through the mic on your phone so you may not have gone crazy by her suddenly turning up everywhere. It may not have been a coincidence.

One of mine was when I was in 8th grade I joined an Animal Crossing forum and some of the members would organize saturday "sleepovers" where we would stay up all night playing video games and chat via skype. the last one awake won and everyone had to trade good items in animal crossing to the winner. sometimes i wonder what all those people are up to now.

>Moses tried to civilize them, but eventually gave up and blew up 300 of the most troublesome of them with dynamite.[6] However, they had learned to use "tricknology" to usurp power and enslave the black population, bringing the first slaves to America. According to The Autobiography of Malcolm X, all the races other than the black race were by-products of Yakub's (spelled Yacub in the biography) work, as the "red, yellow and brown" races were created during the "bleaching" process;[3] however, the "black race" included Asian peoples, considered to be shared ancestors of the Moors. "Whites" were defined as Europeans. Elijah Muhammad also asserted that some of the new white race "tried to graft themselves back into the black nation, but they had nothing to go by." As a result, they became gorillas. "A few were lucky enough to make a start, and got as far as what you call the gorilla. In fact, all of the monkey family are from this 2,000 year history of the white race in Europe."[2]

No. 213623

Try keeping in mind that even if a drawing looks bad for starters in a new medium, it's not going to look shitty forever and the thing standing between a decent drawing and a shitty one is practice, so you might as well start now.
Alternatively, you could try different types of pencils which are harder to erase, like drawing with colored pencils (which also don't smudge as easily as graphite) to ease yourself into pencils.

As for cheaper markers, you can look on AliExpress for alcohol markers. I had a cheapy set before investing in Copics and they worked fine on getting me started. If I didn't have Copics nowadays I'd be buying Master Markers because they are pretty cheap for brush pen markers.
While it's true that those tools don't have a skill requirement as the other anon said, I wouldn't necessarily dive right into some expensive markers/tools unless you have a lot of spare money (and confidence) because it can mean you'll end up not using them much in fear of "wasting" the supplies. Copics really are pretty expensive for a non-archival medium.

No. 213897

if you're comfortable using ballpoint pens, use them. it's always beneficial to learn how to use different tools, but fuck anyone who tells you what to use and what not to use. whoever told you using pen is "not fine" is a dumbass. it's really about what you're most comfortable using. if right now you want to focus on practicing drawing without needing to get used to a new medium, you do you.

personally, i love using pen for practicing because when i use pencils i tend to rely on erasing to much and end up not getting anywhere. a pen forces me to think more before i place lines, and to fix my mistakes by drawing more sketches instead of just erasing and redrawing the one sketch over and over.

Lots of people use ballpoints, but if you really want to challenge yourself you could move to ink pens. Fine liners and dip pens are cheap. Much less forgiving than pencil or ballpoint, but so much more impressive than a biro once you gain confidence and looks great paired with colour markers/inks/water colour

I had a look at cheap aliexpress markers like anon said and I think that even though they don't seem to blend well, they look ok for laying down blocks of flat colour.
I agree with others that you don't have to be amazing to splurge out on just a couple of copics though, just make sure that when you spend money on any art supplies that you really use them. You will never gain experience with a medium by being precious with it, really use that shit up or it's not doing you much good. This might also apply to >>213446

No. 213933

I wouldn't necessarily judge the "blendability" of the markers by that drawing, it looks like it was done by someone pretty inexperienced. I do find bullet/chisel tips in general to be harder to blend with, but it's doable. Just the fact that they're alcohol based will already make them ok to blend since it won't destroy the paper when you go over it more than once.
