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?

Bless this thread for existing because I found this video months ago and the "bad baby" roleplay thing they do on the channel just feels creepy to watch

I'm honestly lost.
I finally found a foundation I really really like and works for me, but I'm between two shades. One is a bit lighter and pink, while the other one is slightly darker and more orange-ish.

I'm afraid the lighter one will make me look washed out but the darker one makes me orange-ish and it's no better.

If it wasn't so expensive I'd just buy both shades ffs. Guess I'll go with the lighter one?

No. 178594

If one's pink and the other is yellowish, decide based on your undertones. If the makeup isn't an exact match to your skin colour, match it to your undertones to make it less obvious and easier to blend. You can get away with minimal difference but a pinkish face when you have olive skin or an orange face when you have rosy skin will make it stand out more.

No. 178622

What's better in general, liquid eyeliner or the eyeliner that are pencils? And I have large pores and some acne scars on my cheeks, should I get a BB cream or foundation? Someone told me MAC's fondations are good but I don't know where to start for that. I don't have a lot of money to spend on make up and skin care but I'm tired of looking like a slob.

No. 178645

So… a stupid question: what's better to apply foundation? Flat kabuki brush or beauty blender?

No. 178669

For eyeliner it depends on the look you're going for. I just use liquid eyeliner though, whether I'm doing a simple line or a wing. If I want to put eyeliner on my lower lid I just use black eyeshadow (carefully).

A blurring or pore-covering primer under foundation will minimize your pores and imperfections under your foundation. MAC is really expensive and there are plenty of other options to try that are cheaper, even in the drug store range, if you can find your shade. If you're trying to find a good foundation just go into an Ulta or Sephora and have them color match you and figure out the best foundation for your skin type and amount of coverage you're looking for.

I use a beauty blender but I use a water based foundation.

Nope. I don't lead people on like that. I think that if you make your own money, or you grew up having nice things, you wouldn't lead people on like that. It seems like you're in it for the money and compliments.

Also not many girls would be interested in a FOB chinese dude. Don't get it twisted because it's not about looks or anything but just the cultural differences and language barrier would be difficult. Since it's your first relationship tho I'll just stop right here

No. 178607

Regardless of whether he's a wealthy foreign sugar daddy or your childhood friend, you still should be honest in your intentions for the relationship even if you're worried it will lead to a break up.
There's nothing wrong with not wanting to do physical things but you need to tell him that you feel this way. For some people those things are an integral part of a relationship, make sure he know what he is buying so to speak. The fact that you're asking here makes it seem like you already know this though.

No. 178614

Sorry if it sounded like humblebragging, I didn't know how to phrase it properly. It's just that it's been to the point where people tell me (albeit as a joke, but still) I might as well just marry him because of the things he does for me and I just laugh it off but honestly it gets on my nerves. Of course I appreciate what he does but I would be content with just hanging out with him and doing basic couple stuff and progressing gradually as we've been doing since I like his personality and we get along, but thanks for the honest viewpoints

No. 178656

As it's your first relationship, keep in mind that there are a lot of cultural differences between china and USA/Europe.
His parents WILL have a say in your relationship. They can just tell him to break up with you. They will expect you to take care of them when they're old, so they'll be super picky. He most likely won't say "fuck off" ever to them.
He probably thinks that as long as he gives you money/expensive things, you have no rights to complain. Even if he cheats on you.

Yeah he's nice right now, and maybe he'll stay like that. But 4 months is not long enough to know someone and even more when there are major cultural differences. You're playing relationships in hard mode honestly.

No. 178664

In my city its the Koreans and Chinese. The Koreans spend hundreds if not thousands on random clothing in little boutique shops while the Chinese buy out porcelain shops.

There is one shop that sells socks for 10 euros a pair and I'm convinced they stay open because of Koreans, every time I pass by there are Koreans buying like 8 pairs of socks.

And the high-end porcelain shops advertise Chinese influenced china and figures in their windows. One had a whole display of roosters and china with roosters on it (the cheapest item was like a 50 euro thimble sized rooster figurine)

A seemingly large event company producing cosplay events… with zero evidence of any events ever existing. Currently advertising a host of Sailor Moon pop-up events that are getting a lot of comments on social media screaming scam. The company claims cyberbullying.

Some other suspicious evidence:
-Supposedly ran a cruise at SDCC 2016 with an actor from LOTR, but there's no evidence of the cruise happening or him being there http://www.anenglishmaninsandiego.com/connews/offsiteupdates/sdcc-2016-off-site-san-diego-home-to-worlds-first-pop-up-resort-during-comic-con
-Also supposedly ran a cosplay train to SDCC 2016 that that same actor was on, but there's no evidence of that existing or him being there.
-Zero images of any of their events exist beyond their promotional materials, with stock crowds
-Their official youtube has zero videos or evidence of any of their past events

Not using lolcow as a personal army, but has anyone definitively been scammed by these guys? There's probably plenty of milk in them with some digging.

is this the equivalent to the r9k "women have it so much better, I wish I was born one"?

No. 178538

each gender has its negatives and positives, but I would argue that men still have it better on average.
Being taken seriously for one. I work in STEM field and despite working more and achieving better results than others, I still get talked down to, as if I were a child. I'm not claiming I'm a genius but oh boy, they are so full of themselves.

Secondly, sexual harrasment. I can't count how many times I've been harrassed. The worst part is; I feel guilty, I feel dirty. I'd rather go in an honest 1 on 1 fight, than being handled like cattle.

I know I'm far from being the only woman that goes through this. I can't stand men but being one would make my life 80% easier.

Also, if you're not married by your mid 30s, people constantly nag you. To hell what others think, just so many idiots think their opinion matters to decide what is best for me despite not being close.

I suppose women that want to have family have it even worse, they have to take time off work to raise a kid, and oftentimes house chores are on her burden.

After restricting for months it took me just over 2 weeks to gain 25ish pounds. It all started when I lost control and binged on a whole pizza… every day since then has been a binge

No. 178463

So stop binging?
Nobody makes you buy the food. It's uncomfortable as hell but it's doable to just..not eat all the food.
Split up proper portions into containers and organise them by what you're allowed to eat that day. Don't buy more than you can eat in three days of proper portioning and don't buy snacks. Make sure there's no junk food around, and keep fresh veggies, fruit, proteins and small amounts of complex, low GI carbs. Work on learning your hunger signals and let yourself feel hungry. It's not actually that bad and if it lasts more than 20 minutes go eat a proper portion.

No. 178478

I cook for my husband several times a day, and I don't even eat the kinds of food he does (I'm vegan). I eat really healthy believe it or not, essentally the same foods as I was while restricting except lately I've been cooking with coconut oil like it's a job…. It's the portion control that's doing me in.

No. 178528

Prepare portioned things. Don't allow yourself to open a container that isn't labeled with the current day.
Check out r/mealprepsundays.
Definitely speak to a medical professional though. Binge eating disorder fucks you up if it's untreated, because your body doesn't truly recover from obesity and obesity is the only possible outcome of binging.

Meal prep was how I stopped binging and purging 12x a day. It's really hard but it's possible. It helps to stop eating alone if you do, and to have someone around while you're prepping the meals.

I don't wanna watch the video or read the article because it hits too close to home, anons. But was it the video that fucking troll posted here a while ago? I accidentally watched it and made me feel like shit.

No. 178470

A lot of other kids all around the world go through this sort of shit, so her age doesn't surprise me at all (kids kill themselves way more often than people seem to appreciate), but I guess she stood out because she talked about her issues on her blog, filmed her interactions with her abusive family and generally had an online presence up to the day she ended it all. I guess it's a good thing because it spreads awareness, but I'm sad that this is what it takes before people start to notice and care instead of screaming "selfish! attention whore!" or brushing things under the rug.
By the way, her stepfather had the nerve to go on her FB and say "she was my angel, she loved me" and shit like that. The same stepfather who treated her like shit, refused to let her reach her full potential (she was chosen to travel somewhere with other "gifted" kids and he tore up the invitation thing in her face and wouldn't let her go), and sexually abused her. One of Katelyn's aunts later went on the FB page to confirm that everything Katelyn said in her blogs about her mother and stepfather being abusive was true (she said they had confirmed legally that she was molested, but the rape charges were still "in the process", typically of court) and said her mother never let her go to the relatives' house specifically because she didn't want her to escape or tell anyone about what happened.
I seriously hope the mother and stepfather get their shit absolutely wrecked by the US legal system, and I hope her siblings get sent to live in a hopefully less twisted household/situation. No one should have to suffer with such cruel, shitty parents.
Also, apparently she had a boyfriend who killed someone (for raping his (ex)-girlfriend). People theorized it was some sort of BEN drowned creepypasta RP though.

Now that I've watched the OP video, most of the shit I posted was in it already. Rip.

Good summary for anons who don't have time to watch it though!

I was looking for more info and there's a thread in /pol with people calling her an attention whore, but that's pol.

True about it taking sth like this to raise awareness, but it probably won't change anything for other young people in her situation.

Idk, it makes me feel helpless when the whole thing's affected me so much. Its like, what can you do to help them if you're not a social worker who, in this case, haven't done anything for her. She'd taken an OD of pills a few months before and yet she was left in that stinking trailer with her junky mother.

Seems like this older guy/bf pushed her over the edge. He needs checking out. Wtf was he doing wanting to fuck a 12 year old.

Idk if the video was posted here, but it wouldn't surprise me.

She's definitely figured out how to be manipulative for the reward. Maybe she just isn't comfortable sitting down on a toilet to poop? Idk what could help, but maybe it's the feeling of sitting like you do in a chair and that's confusing?

Have you let her sit in her own piss/shit for a while?ive heard it works for making the child to start using a potty

No. 178503

I've thought of this but never actually done it. I'll give it a try and see if it makes any difference.

Yeah we are both hot heads. I try to be as chill about it as possible so I don't just make a stressful situation worse but most of the time i want to go in the other room and scream. If i didn't know better sometimes I'd say she has accidents to try and piss me off lol.

Oh yeah. She knows what she's doing. Sometimes she's in the mood for a reward and sometimes she's not, but you're right, I've noticed that even when it comes to pottying for a reward it's never poop. She only ever pees in there. And a lot of the time i can tell that she just made herself pee on the chance that she'll get something out of it because it will just be like, a tablespoon of pee. Lol

Honestly I'm ashamed to say yes I have and she could give two fucks less. One time I just let her stay in a shitty diaper so long she got a bad rash and i felt neglectful. I told her you have this rash now because you didn't use the potty. She didn't give a fuck. She's the most stubborn human I've ever encountered.

She had a checkup on friday and the pediatrician said she'll just do it when she's emotionally ready. It's super frustrating and hard to not just give up.

No. 178509

I know how you feel, but the pediatrician is right. You just have to keep at it, but maybe slack off a little for sanity's sake. Try to get her to use the potty only once a day.
