>does it affect you in any actual way?

Yes. It does. Trans people are demanding to be in female-only spaces such as bathrooms, changing rooms and sleeping areas. I feel bad not wanting them there but as you can see from the other threads, this is usually just a fetish for men. I've hid in the bathrooms with friends who were drugged at night clubs, I want to be able to be in a private area without feeling vulnerable to men's eyes. Women always bring their male children into the bathrooms with them, why is that? Because we don't trust men. Why am I suddenly supposed to be able to trust one after they've gotten a boob job and they dress like a prostitute? Anyway, if everything becomes gender neutral, it won't just be the ones who "pass" that will be allowed into women's spaces because that would be insulting to them. Everyone, even if they're over 6ft, with a beard and men's clothing will be allowed to freely walk into a women's changing room because who are you to say they're not a woman?

It's very much affecting us. I think I've said this before somewhere else on the website, but trans people in my country are now requesting that women now be called "uterus carriers" because trans men have uteruses and trans women feel left out smfh. I refuse to be called a "uterus carrier" and reduced to an object, to my reproductive organs. I'm a human being, thanks.

I'm 100% for trans people having the same rights as me and I don't want them to have to suffer bullying and hate crimes. But insisting that my safety and rights be infringed upon is where I draw the line. I'm totally all for everyone living this short life in whatever way they want and that's why I respect all my trans friends, if that's what makes them happy. But not if it comes at the price of the safety and comfort of women and children. Never.

I think most reasonable people feel this way, the most children get are drugs that delay puberty, which while they aren't perfect, is better than kids killing themselves due to dysphoria.

I feel like people often ignore that the medical industry is just doing what they can see is the best option based off the evidence provided.

No anon, puberty blockers are still unsafe as fuck and mess up puberty in general if the child becomes an adult and wants to transition. The medical industry is not doing the best option. Dysphoria is a mental issue and should be treated as such, most trans people have other mental health issues that are ignored to 'treat' their dysphoria. It's a mental condition, we should treat it like other similar conditions and help the person live with themselves. Instead we allow people to mutilate themselves and try to make everyone else cheer them on and accept them. This is not what we should be doing. This is like telling anorexics that they are okay, and trying to make it possible for them to live as walking skeletons, instead of confronting their issues and helping them understand that they -are- in fact issues that can and should be overcome, we are giving into them and letting them control their lives.

You won't get banned for necroing in /ot/ if it's on topic. Making new threads like this clutters up the catalogue.

>What's your favorite breed?
Chow Chow!
I like fluffy dogs, even though having a fluffy dog would mean that I would have to vacuum constantly and brush them at least once a day. Would be worth it for me.

>Have you owned a dog?

We used to have a dachshund when I was little, but he sadly died 13 years ago. She was a real baby and even though I majorly annoyed her when I was little, she never hurt me

>Do you know any bad dog owners?

I don't, thank God

>What's your future dogs?

Hopefully a pomeranian once I get a stable job. They're fluffy babies and I loved every single I've ever meet. Getting a Chow Chow would (of course) be a dream, but I don't think I could give a Chow Chow enough exercise and I wouldn't want my dog to be unhappy just because I'm a lazy fuck

anyone here own/owned a border collie?
Are they really as difficult as people paint them? We can definitely handle an active dog but some owners say that without professional training border collies become bad dogs. Is is true? Is it a race only for people into dogs sports, agility, running etc or long walks, jogging and frisbee can do? Will appreciate much if someone answers!!

No. 212055

>>212051
Border collies are beautiful, but I lived next door to a family who owned one and it was a major asshole dog. The dog kept barking at everyone in the neighborhood and would go after people. It attacked my cat one time, too (my cat had to go to the vet). I don't blame the dog because I know it was just acting like a dog. The owners didn't do a good job training the dog. So I would suggest that if you get a border collie, you definitely need to train it and don't let it go outside unsupervised.

No. 212084

My ideal dog would be obedient. NGL but I had a shih tzu as a kid that was inbred and he was the most ill-tempered, disobdient, stubborn, idiotic little retard I've ever met in my life. I wanted a dog so badly but after having that little shit head for 15 years I've decided to never, ever get another dog.

No. 212139

They tend to be neurotic and need tons of physical and mental stimulation. Agility, puzzles, nose work, and so on. I'd recommend hiring a trainer just to make sure you're going about everything the right way. They're the smartest breed and can therefore be the biggest headaches if not properly trained and stimulated.

Any other sad losers out there wish there was something comparable to idol culture in western society? Or to be an idol?

I know its creepy to a degree but it seems so innocent. And other than making money & mass marketing, its about entertaining fans and making them feel energized & happy.

in general I think the west could benefit from kawaii culture. the sexualizing is…creepy, but i don't see men ever changing that for as long as they're running the entertainment industry.

King isn't fantastic, but he's many people's first foray into the genre. It's more of a nostalgia trip coloring people's perceptions of him here.

Also I don't like the "lol it was a different time" excuse but I kind of understand. I like Moby-Dick, for example, or Joseph Conrad or Rudyard Kipling, even though what came off as funny then is racist and gross now.

I guess it's similar and I'm glad that it only took 30 years for gangbanging a 11 year old to become anachronistic.

Hey, if you don't like it, you don't like it. Maybe you'll come back to it later. No need to enjoy all the "classics".
What I love about the book is Garcia's writing style and the manner, with which he creates stories upon stories within stories, covering a massive amount of themes in a single page, and how poetic and, unsurprisingly, magical the story itself is. So many metaphors and allusions, I can find something new with every reread. The elements, which would usually make one doubt the book-universe's realness, are so well incorporated that I found myself thinking, for example: Of course Rebeca devours dirt, how could she not? Because, really, how could she not.
The messages the book carries just feel very meaningful to me.

Omfg I get it now anon bless you. Idk but the example with rebecca really made it click. Maybe it's Garcia's writing style that made it belivable enough that I didn't really notice some other tiny things. The issue probably was that I was taking everything too literally.

So are the consequences. Putting aside the unfair social aspect, from a purely biological standpoint, alcohol addiction does far more damage to females than males.

Our bodies produce significantly less of the enzyme that breaks down alcohol. An average woman's body will deteriorate from alcohol addiction about 3 times faster than an average man's.
