ITT we discuss news stories, both new and old, that upset us significantly more than normal.

I just read the story of Alissa Blanton, a 23yo newlywed that was murdered by a 61yo stalker who was a patron of the Hooters she had formerly worked at. This story deeply upsets me for a number of reasons. There's few things that freak me out more than the idea of unrequited love interests turning into stalkers, especially ones you don't even know. The fact she was murdered for not returning this guy's interest is already horrific enough, but the fact he was a morbidly obese 60+ year old man who felt entitled to a woman barely over 1/3 of his age is beyond disgusting.

Est-ce que je suis la seule que le fit de ne pas savoir à propos de l'oeil de Moreno rend dingue ?
Elle nous raconte l'histoire de sa soeur brulée grièvement mais est elle est-même atteinte d'un handicap visible mais aucune info communiquée sur le sujet.
Elle est ministre de l'égalité des chances et une grande femme d'affaire, bordul. Mais nan, rien, on va cacher avec une mèche sans montrer fièrement que c'est un énorme pas sur le fait qu'un handicap n'empêche pas du tout une carrière (qui plus est aussi fulgurante)?
Je comprends ne pas vouloir en faire un fer de lance,et bien sûr, je n'ai pas a commenter comment elle gère cela mais étant moi même porteuse de handicap, ça me donne vraiment l'impression que je devrais simplement fermer ma gueule et le cacher comme tout le monde.
C'est dommage.

No. 602811

Alors je ne la connais absolument pas (lol) mais si elle décide de "cacher" son handicap d'elle même ça reste son choix, par contre si elle y est contrainte là c'est une autre histoire. Tu lui reproches de ne pas donner inspiration aux autres porteurs de handicap via la représentation ?

No. 602818

Bien sûr qu'elle fait ce qu'elle veut de son handicap. Mais en tant que ministre de l'égalité des chances, c'est difficile d'envisager 'simplement nope, won't ever talk about it'.
Surtout quand tu vois le commentaire du français moyen sur ses photos. C'est évident qu'elle est toujours coiffée de cette façon pour cacher son oeil, pour autant, tu as tous les boeufs du coins qui pensent "c'est vrément bizar pr des photos officielles, ils auraient ou lui donner une coiffeuse!!!!"

Honnêtement, c'est une personne que je ne connaissait pas avant son accession au ministère mais visiblement son parcours est admirable.

i dont know if im considered a neet because im an age where its not really that weird but i feel like thats an excuse more than anything. i had to drop out of highschool because of my health, and then for the next few years my family did nothing even though i was begging for them to take me to professionals. i couldnt do anything myself because i was a minor still. i finally got help after attempting to run off which i guess made them realize how serious it was. i worked on healing myself for some more than a year and i was finally going to start getting my license and ged and then a job, except then corona hit. ged places werent open at all even online. figured i would wait until the fall when things would probably be fine but because the us sucks at handling shit, things still arent good and nobody knows whats even going on with public schools yet in my state still, let alone anywhere nontraditional.

because i dropped out and was all fucked up i lost what little friends i have. i only have one friend in my life and we almost never see each other though we do text often because we are a 45 minute drive apart. i have almost no one.

i hate it so much. i hate lying around all day and having no real education. i feel like a drain constantly and a massive idiot. i know the world doesnt revolve around me, but it feels like every time something good happens to me and things start going okay they actually end up 100x worse. why does there have to be a pandemic the year i finally have the ability to get my shit together? sorry if this isnt the right thread or something, i usually lurk more than i post.

Right now I'm in a situation where I have every opportunity to get myself to be independent and confident again. I passed a job interview for a place that's only 10 minutes away and the owner is super friendly and chill. My car is now fixed where I can get back into driving again and my partner is helping me with it, I'm finally going to be able to balance my art/craft with having some stable income and job without feeling like I'm just a failed/broke artist. I don't want to go back faking to my family that I'm living just fine on art alone. I hate have to rely on my partner so much and being home all day just making shit that only sells once in a blue moon.

I'm so excited to feel like I'm worth it again, I'm just scared something bad will happen and I'll revert back because even when I do make money from my art, do chores and make food/dinner for everyone in my household, I still feel like I'm just some moocher because they work way more than me. In a way, I'm scared that even after I start working, I'll realize that I'll never actually be happy with myself, that'll always feel like a failure.

No. 600729

i relate to this, i was fired from my second job ever after accidentally not showing up for unmentioned training hours (this was in high school though so who cares now), then i worked at a restaurant for like 3 months and quit because i couldn't handle all the stress and harassment from customers and coworkers, then i finally thought i was escaping my neet lifestyle by getting a cool full time store job and was let go after working for 2 days for a really petty dumb reason. my point is that i'm also very afraid and i have horrible luck and bad anxiety.

This is the sign of a girl dating either a porn addict or a cheater. Poor girl should dump him for her goddamn sanity.

It’s not abuse to not be okay with it and tbh unless the girl is also looking at porn/hot men online I truthfully believe women do this to cope. I think it’s fucking lame and a sign of a retardism personally if you got a girl and you’re liking girls pics online kek

I wanted to call the women cuckqueans, but that'd imply they derive any sort of enjoyment from their boyfriends looking at other women. They're just so pathetic that they deal with it. Meanwhile, those same boyfriends and all the men who are supporting this shit would go insane if their girlfriends started thirsting over male models, lmao.
Anyway, the original girl should've just told her boyfriend to block/unfollow the OF girl. She didn't, because she too accepts this behavior.

As we witness more and more corporations buying big platforms and mistreating them and their userbases, I think it's save to say that websites could completely vanish from one day to the next.
One of the absolute worst offenders of that is Yahoo/Verizon (who also own Tumblr and killed Geocities, Polyvore, parts of Flickr, all their Yahoo! sub websites like Yahoo Answers,-Blog,-Video, del.icio.us and many more) who now actively tried to prevent archival of their latest victim "Yahoo Groups" (if you want to read about it, here's a summary: https://www.extremetech.com/internet/303208-verizon-bans-archivists-trying-to-save-yahoo-groups-data-from-deletion).

Even Twitter startet to delete accounts who haven't logged in for 6 months, starting on December 11th this year.

Are there any websites or blogs you achived or you think are important and worth to be saved as a part of internet history?
Are you salty about a website that got nuked in an unfair way?
Any other thoughts regarding Internet History? Are you worried?

Not gonna lie, but I really miss old fan-searches from JPN side of fandom. Since Pixiv and twitter have more or less taken over spaces to post fanworks, it has certainly made things easier. But I miss browsing someone's fanart site, looking at their web-diary, and how everyone customized each site. Also it was always exciting when one of my favorite artists linked back to me…I put so much effort into updating my site banner frequently. And a lot of people made those little pixel-gif animations of your favorite series/pairing/thing that you could paste on the front page. It was fun, even if I might be being too nostalgic about it.

I also want to know this, there has to be some way to archive flash dress up games like Rinmaru Games

No. 602425

When I was a kid I fucking loved dress up game sites. I would play for hours on end, and some, like Doll Divine, The Doll Palace, and GirlsGoGames had really awesome communities to go along with their games. I never really grew out of them but over time, stopped giving them as much attention. I got really nostalgic recently and decided to go back on GGG, only to find it inundated by "Pregnant Elsa kneecap surgery" and "Barbie Dental Egg Farm" and shit like that.

And then I got a fucking virus.

I really hate how so many of these awesome websites were lost to time and corporations hoping to make a quick buck off 8 year olds who like Disney, some of those games and communities helped me thrive creatively as a kid, and young girls just won't get to experience it and it sucks. I guess I'm just a salty old-end-of-the-spectrum Zoomer. Even Rinmaru seems to hate her own website and completely dismiss it for her shitty patreon comic.

Also Webkinz. I think the only website that's really surviving the test of time is Neopets.

I'm in a great long-term relationship now but I often think of my first love. He was so smart, kind, and funny. He was also really well-adjusted too which was a new experience for me. I had only been close to shitty, angry, manipulative men at that point. My mental health issues were just too much for him and I don't blame him. I wish I just let him go when he wanted it. I made his life miserable being a sad crazy bitch. I was bad and looked him up a couple months ago and he was looking really good. It looks like he met a lot of his career/travel goals and he seems happy.

Kek my grandfather is like this. We, his own family, can suggest a million sensible things to him but of course we are all wrong, stupid, stop talking to me, blah blah blah. But then he will go and meet some bitch at the park who will tell him about this product at the grocery store, and he will go and buy it that day and then try to force us to like it, too.

Or he will compliment the fuck out of the neighbor's yard, how pretty it is, oh look at how they did this and that, and then I look out the window to see what he is gushing about and it is the same cookie cutter grass + half-dead palm trees + costco solar lights combo you see all over the neighborhood.

I don't know if there is a proper term for this kind of personality but in my own experience dealing with someone like this, your mom is an asshole, just like my grandfather who tried to force our dogs to be vegan because so and so at Walmart told me so!!!!

Incompatible working environments can exacerbate mental and physical issues that people wouldn't even notice in daily life, it sounds like a lot of your problems would be solved by not working in the food industry. I know it's hard to find work right now but they say it's easier to find a job when you already have a job, and now you know what to avoid. Maybe it's OCD, maybe it's autism or maybe you just have a very sensitive sense of smell but either way daily mayo migraines sound bad.

I feel you, I was so overwhelmed by anxiety that I just let the years go by without doing anything. Of course I regret it, but back then I didn't really have a choice, my anxiety made the choices and I didn't know how to cope.

Really often I have dreams where I'm sent back to school, but I'm frustrated and embarrassed that I don't understand what the teacher is teaching because I'm so far behind.

I have ADD and Autism here. Does anybody else see both their ADD and ASD as a disability, but a disability where you can work and what not? B/C I see folks with Mild and Moderate ASD working fine and hell, living by themselves (or with family/friends) and THRIVING. I have a sibling where she has severe ASD, and her disability is severe that she can't work whatsoever. The only issue I have is there's people that don't have disabilities and are claiming they cannot work. I mean, what they have is serious and it shouldn't be ignored/dismissed, but it's not a disability. (but not cancer b/c cancer is very serious disease, even if it's not a disability. People can be so sick from cancer that they need to have a claim that they cannot work.)
