It's pretty easy to find someone especially with an unusual name for their province. My DOG has a stalker (someone who walks past for the last 7 years and tries to talk to him when he's pooping, completely ignores the owners or how offended the dog is. Happened because my sister stupidly handed the puppy to this woman while I was outdoors filming something 7 years ago and she Bonded 4 Lyfe.)

If a frickin' dog can have a stalker it's not a fantasy to say a woman who is foreign+unusual can have multiple

How do you feel about Omocat's designs and artwork? I like a lot of the stuff available in their store and have the glow in the dark sweater personally, other people think it's too weeb.
Reminder that they started a Kickstarter for a game they were making with free software. It raised $203,000 from 5,910 backers. Said game was meant to be released in May, but there's been no word on it. Not even an update. No backer rewards, either.

The designs are neato, but the fit of the sweaters SUCK. Whenever I wore one (I.. somehow ended up buying so many back when I had poor judgment and got tricked by the pretty art) it looked like a sack. I also have a succubus shirt in crop top form and that one completely disintegrated after a couple of washes. Weak af.

Has anyone ever had any near death experiences during their life? What were the events leading up to it, what did you feel/see/etc during the experience, what happened afterwards when you came back?

One common theme surrounding these is a person feeling like they're floating upwards and watching things happen below them and seeing their own unmoving body, or feeling like you're rushing through a tunnel of light and feeling calm/accepting/etc. What do you make of these claims and do you think NDEs do happen or they're just hyped up and exaggerated?

Childhood asthma, don’t remember any of it but a few hospital trips for turning blue

Drowning-shit hurts and it not peaceful. It’s terrifying. Fuck the beach.

Shock-Ludwig’s angina. They put in a saline drip and it apparently was too much for my body to take. All I remember is shaking, asking ‘why is that happening’ and then lots of faces and masks and machines while shaking off the table and not being able to speak or control my movements.

Woke up after emergency surgery and apparently react very poorly to anaesthesia.
According to nurses I’m an iv puller and make threats. Feels bad.

Was a pretty dumb teenager so there were some moderate overdoses here and there that might of taken me out but that’s boring shit.

I have a hereditary thing where I get nose bleeds easily and one week I had a cold.

All the nose blowing made my nose bleed one morning so I did my normal thing to try and stop it.

A few minutes later it's still going but I don't worry cuz it just needs time to clot.

More time passes and its STILL not stopping.

I get annoyed so I try a different way of stopping it but it continues to bleed at full speed.

I was standing up in the restroom and I started to feel dizzy from the blood loss.

Everything was slowly going black and I felt weak.

I called out to my mom but I guess she thought I was exaggerating so she just stood there.

As inspired by the man-hating thread, how do you anons feel about an all-female society?

Some questions to get your creativity flowing:
>Where would you like it to be? On a tropical island? In a small village in Europe?
>What kinds of amenities would you like to have in the area?
>Would you set up a business in the area?
>What laws would you have in effect?
>In what ways could we be self-sufficient?
>Do you have any ideas for a currency? National anthem? Flag? Coat of arms?
>Any other kind of cultural details you'd like to encourage/discourage?
>What media about all-female societies inspires you?
>What do you think the benefits would be?
>What do you think the struggles would be?

Fantasy questions aside, do you think a society like this is actually possible?

I guess it often comes down to experience. I've only had good experiences from being in groups with mostly women in it. All my current friends are women. The place I work in is dominated by females, and I've never experienced any drama, jealousy or backstabbing.

In my family there's always the men who will start drama, usually by getting drunk at family gatherings and start throwing insults around, even threaten to fight to the point where us women are forced to call the police. It has gotten so bad, my aunt decided to invite only the women and girls in the family to her birthday party this year. We're all so excited about it, despite having to deal with the guys being super-petty over not being invited.

Based on my own experience with men, I would love to at least live in a neighbourhood with women only in it.

No. 248558

Agreed, women in my experience are more empathetic, the only "obsessed with drama" types I've met were in middle school, I've definitely met drama obsessed men, if not more than women, men CANNOT be told no for an answer, once this guy at my work kept trying to make a move on me and getting obsessed with me, when I started dating someone else he started ignoring me like a big baby when I was trying to talk to him about work and would cry to other people at work about how "i only like bad guys I deserve to be treated bad" and ofc people sided with him, most women I've met either try to avoid drama or are empathetic and listen to both sides

I've only ever been backstabbed by men too, a lot of men are know are compulsive liars so I find it hard to trust them, even over small shit because of how much shit I knew men lied to me about, not to mention they project a lot

No. 248570

Id rather get my ass handed to me because a woman who hated me found out i did a mistake and shes being petty than being hit on because a guy thinks im 'nice'. Some women seem to think possible sexual harrassment trumps possibly being around women being bitchy which quite frankly sounds like they would deal with harassment over women who can actually catch them on their shit. the chance of me meeting a woman who is a complete cunt is significantly lower than meeting a man who wont at some point hit on me or do something to convolute the relationship wether it is professional or not. It feels like no woman is excluded from the thought of 'can i fuck her? Can i date her? Can i do xyz' and people who say that shit is normal/should be treated as such need to kys. I also hear way more innappropriate shit from guys too that arent even funny jokes, just legitimate spectrum level openess because they can't discern 'locker talk' (kys) from being in a lunchroom with co workers who have no relation to you outside of this job.

but they sound like a bot, obviously women can be bad co-workers at times but claiming that female dominated groups were just drama, jealously, backstabbing, hypocrisy field breeding grounds is just a lie, considering the only people I met who dragged others into drama and jealously were men and how "HR dealt with creepy guys when I reported and that was the end of it" which is also fishy since most places, if you report mens creepy behavior to HR they doubt you, ask for proof, accuse you of lying, or just don't care

also "women are meen hr took care of creeps men are better" anon has awful spelling, unless they're esl I doubt they even have a job with that bad of grammar

Yeah I didn't take it seriously just because of the spelling

like maybe all these "backstabbing" women are just tired of dealing with dumbass anon

Btw women can totally be bitchy and backstab. But it isn't the majority. It's certain jobs, roles and power positions which bring it out. Overall the lying and manipulating is usually done by the menz. The "all women are x" is such a tired argument. Even on an Anonymous forum like this we help and encourage each other.

I have my license just for the heck of it. I got it at 20 while my peers all had theirs by 17-18. (am 25 now)

ive only driven a few times under supervision of my boyfriend. but i dont have a car. gas+insurance+maintenance+cost of car is just too much. plus student parking for college costs. I just take the bus usually. whenever I've tried to drive, i'm really terrified of getting in an accident. people dont turn their turn signals on all the time when they make a sharp sudden lane change. people just rush by when I need to make a turn but have to wait for the passing cars to stop. Then the bitch ass behind me honks their horn because i ~take too long~. people on the road are really crazy and rude. and the main reason I dont drive is because i cant seem to get a feel of the car. i'm always told that i'm too close to the side of the road (where cars are parked), or that i'm not centered in the lane. the car is fucking huge, i dont get how people can know that they're so close to edge of the road. the mirrors certainly dont help. parking is also the most difficult thing. my license is basically there for ID purposes and hopefully i can learn to drive someday. I wish there were tiny cars that just fit for one person so I wouldnt feel worried about accidentally hitting someone from the side.

I'm in the same boat as you right now. I still have to drive to work and eugh, I'd rather take the bus tbh.
I know being a car owner sucks, but have you thought about getting a smart? They're tiny, idk about the price but I think they're easier to drive than a normal car?

I also don't feel like driving is "liberating" like some people say. Guess it's because you'll have to remember where you parked and just keep it somehow constantly in mind

I didn't learn to drive until I was 22. I had a boyfriend that drove and I thought public transport was cheaper, but it's not where I live. My brother got gifted lessons he didn't want so I phoned the instructor to ask if I could use them and she said yeah. I didn't have my own car to practice in so after I used up my brother's block I bought another 5 lessons then took the test. I didn't get a car until a month later and that drive home from the dealership was terrifying haha.

I was vague cause I didn't want to write a whole load of crap about BPD and relationships, but OP's stated that she had issues with people who have BPD being attracted to her, to the point where OP struggles to know how to form "normal" friendships.

Like if you want to make friends who don't have BPD and are having this much of an issue with it, I think you have to look at yourself and try and figure out why you keep ending up in friendships with people who probably aren't great for your wellbeing.

I'm not blaming anyone but OP doesn't have control over these BPD friends of hers, she can't read their minds and figure out why she keeps making friendships with them, she can only look inward at herself and try and change the situation from there really.

met a FTM friend in high school. He was nice at first but later told me about his witchcraft hobby. I'm open to most religious practices. But he went overboard. He would cut his hand and use his blood for spells, cut people's locks of hair for curses or poppet dolls. Build shrines and try to call to the spirits. Would masturbate as a form of worship to a deity and chant things. I know all this because for a while we followed each other on tumblr. Somehow his posts would get thousands of notes too, so I'm guessing its a big community. It's beyond my comfort zone honestly. I feel like you should be able to live life without constantly relying on your religion as your only personality trait. Especially with practices like those.

>The word "selfish" is just thrown around to shame people for not caving into what you want.

I think it would be healthy to learn what the true selfishness is and what is just a word people are throwing around to get what they want.
For example - my mother, she wasn't a bad person but she was rather selfish. She'd eat all my food, she'd wake me up by pointing a flashlight into my eyes so she could ask me what she's going to eat that day, when I was going through a breakup I told her I don't feel like living and she asked me if that means I won't be going out to buy her food lmao. I mean can you imagine receiving a cake for both of you and you eat the entire thing, leaving nothing for your small child?
Now, what isn't selfishness - not wanting to go out with someone, not wanting to do certain sex acts, wanting to do something for yourself, etc.

Last year (2012) a woman named Toni Ingram started a blog.


This blog was to commemorate her daughter, Morgan, who had committed suicide the previous December. Toni, however, believed that Morgan was stalked and killed by a neighbor boy. She wrote her blog on a day-by-day basis, taking from notes and memory from the year before, leading her readers down a trail of fear and shock as the “stalking” escalated.

At first.

This blog was shared over on a true crime forum called Websleuths. Many of us followed the blog. Most felt Toni was telling the truth and agonized over Morgan’s death.

Finally, the police reports, autopsy reports, toxicology screens, and murder investigation reports were released, and we were all able to view the case from both sides. It was apparent to all but a few die-hards that Toni – at the very least – was delusional, at most was potentially dangerous. Munchausen by proxy was mentioned by several people in the psych field, as well as a new phenomenon called Munchausen by Internet. Either way, there was no stalking and there was no murder.

The true crime board closed discussion on the case after it was decided Morgan had killed herself, since no crime had been committed. A group of us created our on board to continue investigation of the case. Our group (and yes, there are many of us involved) decided to make the official documents available for other people who wanted all the details of the story they were reading, so we put up our own website, so people would make informed decisions about the case before donating money or investing emotion. We later added another site.

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

Previous thread >>>/ot/221232
TERF thread >>>/g/67378
Transpassing thread >>>/ot/214811
Transwomen thread >>>/ot/203215

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. Gender critical 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.

Transgenderism 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.

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.

>intersex people just have two sets of genitals anon. i think that it was sick that even just a few decades ago, drs were allowed to remove whichever set that they saw fit.

Er… no they don't lol.

There are lots of different intersex conditions, some have ambiguous genitals, some don't (androgen insensitivity syndrome etc). The biggest problem historically is that ambiguous genitals have been shaped to fit either male or (most often) female; and the child has been raised as such without the knowledge they are intersex. True hermaphrodites are rare… and also have never been known to have functional gonads (in humans).

okay? who cares. they're still not getting elective surgery like trannies are.

Because it's an important difference. If you go round saying intersex people have two sets of genitals you look dumb af and like you don't know what you're talking about.

No, they're not getting elective surgeries… and intersex =/= transgender. As I said before most get forced into gender roles too. Intersex literally has nothing to do with any trans issues other than the fact the trans lobby stole all their terms.

No. 248371

no, i wish that we're an option just not in the current society unless i want to be shunned by people and employees even more.

There is a fundamental difference between transsexualism, anorexia and body dysmorphia, anorexia is where you see yourself as something that you're not i.e fat, body dysmorphia doesn't get cured even after you get the liposuction, and transsexualism is where you feel the the other gender but see body as the wrong one which gets cured by cross-sex hormone treatment and surgery.
