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?

did you miss the entire rest of the thread? even the OP is blanket statements. honestly, i think this thread is shit and most of the posts ITT are whining about how men like women in their 20s and they only bring up younger ages when trying to defend themselves. i get that incels do that to women but then either we just admit it or we stop. i don't agree it's the same as incels, but most people are just whining and making assumptions in very similar ways. and no, being a pedo is not the same, but most people aren't even talking about being pedo anymore.

this thread should have had more discussion about the media trying to force the sexualization of children and why some people think this crap is okay in the first place. but instead it's just a bunch of seemingly whining about how they're disgusted that men only like looks.

Yes please tell me how its not but big bad jelly oldies complaining that men like younger women


Also, in the thread was derailed a few times because people were discussing how awful women get treated if they aren't pretty, its not "waaaahhh men only want young pretty 20 yr olds" its that we find it gross how awful women get treated if they're unattractive as well as how obsessed men are with teens, you just sound like a robot who sees that when women call out the bullshit they have to face its just them ranting about how guys only like looks and men only want girls in their 20s

I'm from the rural part of a european country. Before going to college i wanted to make some cash; here it's quite normal to work on fields to do so as students.

At school they already told us how shitty Monsanto is - but i did not care since i wanted the monay. On my first day i started at like 6 in the morning, the weather was shit, raining lile hell. During the lunch break the boss comes up to me and says that there are too many people here and that he doesn't need me anymore.

So after applying for this job weeks prior, getting the okay for 2 months i was fired after half a day, because he's too stupid to calculate how many workers he needed…

An adult daycare center. My boss was a crotchety battleax of a nun who demanded that we stood up at all times (no leaning against walls or sitting down) and wouldn't let us bring in our own lunches to eat. I feel most comfortable wearing scrubs to jobs like that, especially since I did not want to run the chance of dirtying up my personal articles of clothing with bodily fluids while I showered them and changed their diapers. The kitchen lady was nice, but her food was garbage, most of it was donated food throw together in a pot and served with bread and applesauce. No dice, unfortunately. Apparently, the participants had a tendency to clam up and get scared when they think nurses or doctors are around, so I didn't make a fuss. I wore street clothes and ate the same food as everyone else.

I didn't mind the participants, and many of them seemed to grow very attached to me. Cleaning them, feeding and assisting them was no issue either, as I'm used to that kind of work and I find it much less hassle than doing the same for infants or toddlers (I used to work with children). However, I couldn't stand my co-workers. They were a chatty bunch who badmouthed the participants at any opportunity. They put on this cheerful kindergarten teacher facade when it was time to sing songs or play games, but as soon as they walked away that fake smile faded and someone would say something fucked up.

I was also kind of off-put by the whole ' treating participants like children' thing. Only about 30% of our participants had some sort of mental or cognitive impairment. The rest of them were just elderly or physically disabled and needed something to occupy their day while their primary caregivers were at work. The whole workplace had this degrading atmosphere. Giving former university professors and police officers coloring books and 10 piece jigsaw puzzles and making them sing campfire songs and shit.

The bitches were also annoying to me. I was the new girl there and the youngest by far (average age was about 35, a decade older than me) so every little thing I did was under scrutiny. I was instructed to do something by the person training me, only for another woman to come up seconds later asking me why I should be doing X when I need to be doing Y. So I'd go do Y, only for my boss to come up and tell me why I'm not doing Z, so on and so on. I was also pressured into not quitting several times because apparently, the daycare center was barely meetiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Oh geez, I always wondered about the adult caretaker job. When I worked in retail, caretakers would always come in with their elderly groups/person. I think most of them would either act like the elderly person or the entire group are mentally challenged, or they would just be lazy and not care. I remember one time when I was working at a grocery store as a cashier, and these 2 young caretaker women came through with 3 carts full of food. Both of them just stood there on their phones while their elderly group sat on benches nearby and I had to put all of the bags back in their cart without their help. It boggles my mind why people go to work in such a field if they don't like interacting with the elderly or why so many people default to the 'preschool teacher' personality like you mentioned.

Seasonal at a Disney store.
I didn't realize everyone hates seasonal workers so was unprepared for the general bitchiness from the crew. One manager in particular despised me for no reason and every shift with her was a battle
I had 1 day of training before they put me on register with no one to supervise. It was hell. There's so much to memorize and upsell and I didn't even know how to sell park tickets until my 3rd fucking week.
Some highlights include
Accidentally stocking one plush on the wrong spot and getting called an idiot in front of customers. Literally just a slip of my hand got me berated
Told to come in after close by a manager to use employee discount yet when I did, everyone got pissed and told me not to ruin their floor (understandable)
Told to hold something then was yelled at in front of customers when I was actually meant to count it.
A customer asked me if they could use a certain credit card. I said I'd check with my manager just to be sure after telling them no initially. Just to make the customer happy you know? The manager got pissed I asked her then I overheard her telling a coworker to watch me because I even asked.
Also, at the end of my shift I told the manager that someone needed to switch with me so I could clock out. She told me ok. An hour passes and nothing so I tell my coworker who tells that manager who then storms up screaming at me that I should've told her earlier. I walked out of the mall crying that day.

Customers also sucked but I'd take annoying customers over a bitchy team and even bitchier manager anyday.

In the end they gradually took me off the schedule and I was so happy. I went in to get my final check and the manager who hated me said "what's your name again?" with the most shit eating grin I've ever seen.
Fuck them
I still love Disney though

Because of anime it seems like everyone and their moms think Japan is a sugoi magical country with 0 evil/bad things. I never really understood the hype of Japan.

I've seen people so obsessed with Japan, they will only use and eat stuff from Japanland. I've known people who legally changed their first name to a Japanese one. Seen pure white weebs claim they are 0000.1% Japanese. If you've been on the Internet for awhile I'm sure you've seen the weirdos that think they are a rl anime character or try to emulate a animu life. I worked in a game shop that had a Japanese section and some people would wear cringey cosplay stuff and think they're badass + shout random Japanese.

Why does Japan get all this love and praise?

Why is Japan so attracttive to socially inept and mentally ill people?

Why do weebs think faking and lying about their race is acceptable?

This. Japan is cool and in terms of infrastructure, safety and efficiency way better than western countries, but Asian men are generally unattractive compared to the men I'm used to (White and "Hispanic"). Japanese are definitely better looking than mainland Asians though.

>>207535
That burnout will happen to you too, believe me. The little differences between you and Japanese people will start to gradually grate on you as the years go by. It's nowhere near as bad as somewhere like Korea as far as the regret goes, because Japanese people are actually civilized and decent for the most part, but the older people get the more we tend to prefer our "own kind", I find.

Also:

While I really like Japanese traditional culture and the fact they've had so much continuity, I don't think their material culture (architecture, painting, other kinds of physical art) is as great as it is hyped up to be.

I get the minimalism, but there's a certain point where all those Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples blend into one. They're just so samey.

I'm in my 30's, mixed race, atheist, introvert, quiet and focused more on my family than an independent social life. I've moved around a lot. My whole life has been go with the flow, trying to find middle ground with others and not really identifying strongly with any particular group. Being an outsider or being held to a different standard than others is not new for me, especially with how fractured and extreme groups in the U.S. can be sometimes. Because of this, and certain life events, I grew to be content of not fitting in completely. I guess I'm just a nomad.

15 years since my first visit, I'm really used to the way things are for me in Japan and I don't care about being seen exactly the same as Japanese as long as I am afforded the same respect and opportunities as anyone else. I've been very privileged so far, but who knows how it will be when my kids are all off to college or married.

I wouldn't die returning to America, but it also doesn't seem unlikely for me stay here another 10 or 20 years. Maybe it's difficult for someone with strong racial or cultural connections back home, but it was never that way for me and now that I have a family with their roots here, my priorities are different. I guess 仕方無い is appropriate in my case.

>>207706
I agree that after you travel most of this country, it will eventually lose some of its wonder. But that's why you need to shift the focus from monuments and festivals to regional food. I don't think I could get bored of that!

Italy is definitely one of the top 5 countries I want to visit one day. I think anyone who loves Japan is foolish not to want to experience what other countries have to offer too.

DO NOT WAIT DO NOT WAIT DO NOT WAIT

For ANY standardized test:
DO NOT WAIT DO NOT WAIT DO NOT WAIT

Start studying NOW. Make studying a part of your life NOW. The longer you wait, the harder it's going to be because the more stuff you will forget.
Also what's even worse: the more expensive it will become as you will need more study materials to stay on top.

Also: find a study partner.

>how can I keep organized and deal with my overprotective psycho parents?

Telling them that you're studying for the ACT with a study group would be a great way to get out of the house and get away from them. I had old study partners that would just come to group meetings to mess around on their phone just to escape their stupid real life.

I know this sounds like gatekeeping, but if you aren't sure what you want to be doing exactly and you need to pay rent then I would just start moving towards a normal career so you can do arts on the side because being jobless or paid badly is par for the course unless you can find a niche for yourself. In less skilled creative positions there are always art sudents/grads who are willing to do everything for free so employers don't need to pay you much unless it's a rare technical skillset you have, and then you need have the experience on your CV to back up your claims of that thing you can do.

Maybe you're different to me, but I have found that in underpaid creative positions I'm usually putting in so much extra time of my own because I want the projects to succeed that I don't have any time to work on my own thing. Whereas with a non-creative job, as long as you find one where the environment is nice enough that you don't hate every minute, then at least at the end of the day you can clock out and go do your own work.

However if you decide on a specific job route or niche e.g. in-house comms design, then I really recommend doing any relevant internships you can find and also having a passion project in your spare time so you have something of your own to share. There are plenty of resources and ways to get ahead, but you need to know which direction you want to take 'being creative' in and at what cost you are willing to pay for it.

Thank you kind anon for your reply!

Well for my part now I already do the work during the day and be creative after that kind of thing as a illustrator. And this is what I would continue to do.

I already thought about the traditional career thing, which could be more stable and have "something" to build on it. But I read a lot of times that if I would do an apprenticeship after my studies, it would be useless and a waste of time. This is one thing that makes me not so easy to go into this direction. And if I would end this, I would be already 29, which is really old.

But otherwise I have no idea how to change my direction, I mean I can't just apply for jobs that I can't do? Idk maybe I'm a bit stupid here but the way to change this path is still a big question mark for me.
