Who the fuck are these people who have clearly never done a basic search on this shit? Legalizing prostitution, even if you try to “unionize” it does raise the rate of trafficking, they just traffick women of color/immigrants who can’t get out of it and who no one cares about.

And look up the fucking Nordic model holy shit there’s this thing called criminalizing the demand

I've seen a lot of discussion in various threads about Finding Neverland and wanted to be able to discuss it in depth without derailing. What did you think of it? Do you believe them? Do you think the movie will help educate people on the subject of child sexual abuse? What do you think of the parents?

I thought it was an amazing movie, despite being really difficult to sit through. I absolutely believe the victims 100% and I think a lot of people will learn from it if they're not Jacko stand who will just dismiss every word they say. It meant a lot to me because I was abused as a child in a very similar fashion (I was 7 with a 16 year old "boyfriend" who groomed me pretty much the exact same way- minus the celebrity element obviously). I also like how they discussed how in the case of celebrity abusers, the works is already groomed in a bizarre way and that's why you have people who will never believe the allegations no matter how much evidence.

I also found the response by the people in his life very telling. I was expecting his loved ones to dismiss it as all lies, but I was not expecting anyone to have the attitude of "well, his sexual needs were his sexual needs and they were happy to be there". I'm still trying to wrap my head around that statement.

As for the parents, I have a really hard time believing that throughout this entire thing, they didn't get some inkling of a red flag. I believe they were willfully turning a blind eye for the perks that came with being close to Jacko.

Can we discuss Michael's creepy ass voice for a second? If you look at any pedo caricature, even before Michael was thought to abuse kids, pedos were always seen as putting on a "soft" or high voice.

Literally how many boxes could Jackson tick as a stereotypical pedo without everyone seeing he's obviously a pedo? Every thread on reddit is like "He was so messed up by his dad. Poor guy. He really was a child inside.". Ffs

Post artwork that's been fixed, red-lined, redrawn, etc.

This is in part to stop the art cow threads from getting derailed. If you want to post a redline of Holly Brown's work, post it here. If you want to post liquefied art of Spechie's, post it here. If you recently fixed your own art work or redrew it, post it here.

All art posted on here is open to critique, so don't post anything you'll get touchy about.

The point is to have a "before" and "after" for those of us who find those picture satisfying or a detailed explanation of why the work is incorrect for those of us who are not artistically inclined.

Bitch about your friends here. Feel free to consult the thread on whether you should have the person in your life if you're at the point where you're not sure anymore.

>be overweight and trying to lose at least 30 lbs

>be friends with obese girl who keeps complaining about how tiny I am, that I don't need to lose weight, and how it's driving her crazy
Note that I don't even discuss it with her much, I'll just make passive comments about having to watch what I eat when she suggests we go out for bad food. I've been trying to skirt around pointing out that I'm factually overweight when she goes on these rants to avoid making her feel bad about herself, but the last one she was so offended and actually angry at me, so I think it's time to bring her into reality. Like, sorry that you're way bigger than me but that doesn't make my weight any less unhealthy?

Same friend
>shits on me for things I often later find out she's totally fine with other friends saying/doing or even agrees with
>bitter AF when it comes to money and disapproves of people spending it in anyway she wouldn't (like she'll judge you for spending money on video games but $5 every day on coffee and eating out every night for dinner is a necessity in her world)
>has straight up asked me to confront her SO about conflicts they're having that don't involve me in any way and state I'm on her side

This thread is for the discussion of transgenderism / trans ideology from a gender critical and radical feminist perspective. It was originally created by Admin as an amalgamation of the TERF and Transgender threads.

Gender critical and radical feminism define gender as sociological (feminine/masculine) and sex as biological (female/male). Woman is defined as an adult human female. Radical feminists seek to abolish gender as it is used by patriarchy to oppress women socially, reproductively, and financially. They strive to preserve women's spaces (such as restrooms, locker rooms, and health care providers) and areas of artistic and intellectual expression separate from men.

Trans ideology posits that one's gender is self-determined based on one's feelings and defines woman as the characteristics and behaviors traditionally ascribed to females by society. Increasingly, transactivists are conflating gender and sex and asserting that a person can self-identify both gender and sex.

Gender critical feminists strive to maintain the distinction between gender and sex. The conflation of gender and sex erases the biological reality of women, eliminates women-only spaces, and disestablishes women as a protected class. Existing laws and legislation currently being passed around the world allowing for self-identification on legal documents do not differentiate between gender and sex.

The acronym TERF (Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminism) is used primarily by transactivists and their allies to denigrate radical feminists and other women who express gender critical ideas. Transactivists portray TERFs as violent oppressors by virtue of their ideas alone.

Posts of related news and web articles are welcome. Posts of photos, videos, and blogs of transactivists for the purposes of discussion and critique are welcome. Please refrain from derailing, infighting, and ad hominem attacks. This thread is not intended for the general discussion of feminism, sexuality, misogyny, or misandry.

>The study will include two groups of gender dysphoric youth: one in the earliest stages of pubertal development to assess the impact of puberty suppression, and one in later stages of pubertal development to assess the impact of cross-sex hormones for gender transition.
>Specifically, in the earlier pubertal cohort (Tanner stages 2-3; n=80) the study will evaluate the impact on mental health, psychological well-being, physiologic parameters and bone health as well as document safety of GnRH agonists administered for puberty suppression.
>In the later pubertal cohort (Tanner stages 4-5; n=200) the study will evaluate the impact on mental health, psychological well-being, and metabolic/physiologic parameters, as well as document the safety of cross-sex hormones administered for gender transition.
The study doesn't aim to lower age of cross-sex hormones to 8, but to only administer GnRH agonists (to delay puberty) to Tanner stages 2-3 (usually age 9+) patients. Administration of cross-sex hormones is intended only for Tanner 4-5 patients (usually age 12+).

Anyone else in here genuinely ugly? Not fat or anything like that, but just have a legit busted face?

Or is it just me? I feel like it's just me. I'm the only person I see outside that has a deformed face and looks disgusting. I just can't deal with it anymore because being an ugly woman is so hard, it feels like looks matter the most and I look repulsive. I honestly don't want to wake up most days.

the mirror/selfie phenomenon is discussed ad nauseam, but dae here think that they look fine in pictures that other people take of them, but looks borderline subhuman in selfies? any explanation for this?

also, i took some photos of myself with my dslr the other day and i actually looked decent…but whenever i try using my phone's camera i look disgusting. but people post selfies of themselves taken with their iphones all of the time and look gorgeous so i'm not sure if i can blame it on that

Looking good on a dslr or at a distance/taken by others is actually pretty hard to do. selfie cams are always warped as hell, and maybe it warps you in all the wrong ways. Selfie cams make my face look longer and more angular, when it is actually oval and quite soft (i look like a moonface on dslrs) so it's all about the lenses.

No. 396427

i don't wanna go too much into detail cause I'm uncomfortable but I have won the genetic lottery by lacking and losing features that basically define a woman's femininity.
I feel like a freak compared to almost every other girl. So even if you guys feel ugly, but are otherwise "normal" then please don't be too harsh on yourself.
You're probably your own worst critic. That isn't supposed to sound preachy btw, I just find it sad to see normal young women hate themselves.

Yeah, I feel this way too. But I think it's better to look good in photos other people take of you than selfies. Also to understand most people edit their selfies in some way, very few people upload selfies of themselves that aren't doctored. I look good on video and in photos other people take of me, but absolutely hate the way I look in selfies, so I don't take them. The whole concept of selfies is weird anyway. You're forcing a pose and expression for a closeup photo of your face. It's gonna look weird no matter what haha
