What's up with the quora user Alan Flansberg?

https://www.quora.com/What-is-it-like-to-be-confined-to-a-straitjacket


Ignore his left bashing, poor people deriding, conservative bullshit. That's not the interesting thing about him. A number of his answers are written in a novel-like format despite being "personal experiences". Other notable accomplishments include

Graduating from an Ivy League "colloge"

Making "sveral" fortunes over his lifetime after being abandoned by his mother and left at an orphanage. (Yet somehow gaining a 3mil inheritance from his mother upon her death)

Trafficking Drugs in the 80's earning about 3 million a month

Do you have any idea how emotionally draining and demanding robots are? You'd be talking to them over the entire week which might as well be hours for a part time job. At least people who work irl jobs get a day or two off. You'd never get any downtime, esp on weekends.

>>503445
I have no idea where this platitude came from, but it's pretty universal that almost everyone looks down on sex work. Whereas with retail or fast food yeah you get a few ignorant people who act like they're above you, but for the most part everyone has had or knows someone who's had these as starter jobs. You'd have something to build from on your resume to boot.

Anyone else tired of the trans trend that’s currently sweeping over the planet?

If it isn’t men in wigs taking over every male up industry known to man and demanding they have rights to use the women’s bathroom despite their nut sack is slipping out of their panties.

It’s big fat fuck fake bois who claim to be male. Until then reach twenty five and realise what a mistake it was to chop off their tits and want kids.

It's pretty telling that everyone jumps to defend him and not the woman who was of course brutally murdered and isn't around to defend herself. All of this also ignores that he killed his own grandparents even though by his own admission his grandfather at least did nothing wrong. It's one thing to listen to what he says about why he killed but it bothers me that people ignore how hilariously biased he is in trying to excuse himself and make him self look good when he murdered a bunch of innocent people.

Also an important note about the Wuornos case is that the first guy she murdered was a convicted rapist. I also think this is relevant:
>During an interview with filmmaker Nick Broomfield, when she thought the cameras were off, she told him that it was, in fact, self-defense, but she could not stand being on death row—where she had been for ten years at that point—and wanted to die

I noticed in the true crime community for the past 5-8 years (I mean, it's gotten worse since the early 2010s considering before TCC discussion was mostly followed by females so it was a different tone/level completely) they always make excuses for white male serial killers and clearly empathize with them the most. It's honestly really fucking disturbing and skeeves me the fuck out. I KNOW its not popularity because Richard Ramirez doesn't get (male) (or non fangirl) defenders like this despite suffering legitimate brain trauma and other abuses before he became a serial killer. Really WEIRD shit.

I remember reading somewhere that prostitutes are raped on average of like 10+ times per year give or take. If that's true it's not at all statistically unlikely that she could have committed of those murders in self defense.

I don't disagree that he's an unreliable narrator, but it is possible that both things are true. Let's not forget that the people raising children at that time were all tremendously fucked up by WWII, and were raised by WWI survivors themselves. It just doesn't really surprise me that some of the most prolific serial killers (Gacy, Kemper, Bundy, Manson, DeAngelo, Zodiac) were raised by the fallout of WWII in the midst of the Vietnam War. Doesn't justify their actions in any way, but it was just trauma birthing trauma birthing trauma at that point.

Discuss your horror stories involving MLMs and other cult practices.

While in community college, I saw a sign asking people to attend a Primerica meeting promising employment; being desperate for a job, I went.

In the meeting, they’ve discussed how great Primerica is and “you can follow your dreams!!!” while implying you have to drop out of school in order to make room for selling insurance for. I found it sad that one of the representatives stopped pursuing his engineering degree in order because college was too hard and expensive and joining Primerica was the best choice he’s ever made.

I then had one-on-one time with one of the representatives, he was loud and very persuasive that I almost fell for it. He asked me to cough up $125 to get a “license” and my employment is set, I told him I was completely broke; they asked me for at least $25 bucks but I told him once again: I’m broke. He then tried to get me to extort my family for money and was overwhelmed, I also told him I had school hours during the times they wanted for me to sell, right then and there I was “terminated” because my school schedule got in the way (I was taking night classes).

I told my mom and she pretty much told me it was a scam and it’s not really a job if they wanted you to pay right away for a license. Ironically, my parents were buying and shilling Herbalife 10 years prior; my stepfather buys their products occasionally. My mother also had a stint with Avon 20 years prior and rarely if ever buys their products.

I had no idea what a pyramid scheme actually was until the NXIVM shit broke out. I also got scouted for Primerica while at Hot Topic (lol), not exactly knowing FPS Financial was Primerica. I voluntarily went to their meeting, pretended I care then blocked the recruiter’s number after multiple calls.

Please:
•No sperging (i.e., encouraging extreme violence or poop-touching)
•Keep infighting to a minimum
•Try to keep GC/PP discussion contained to this thread
•Ignore any post that is off-topic (racebait, homophobia), or that you suspect was posted by a troll/scrote

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.

I'm so sorry your friend has to deal with that shit, let him know he doesn't need to stay with the troon, and it's better to leave ASAP, if he's able to.
I used to have a troon "gf" and he would be so reliant on me for his own happiness and never did his part for me, basically used me and took so many of my belongings without asking. About $500 worth.
I moved in with him at the beginning of him trooning out and it only got worse from there. Glad I'm out! Lots of therapy sessions afterwards and still ongoing, it's been about 5 years since. There's true happiness waiting for your friend when he leaves.

This is literally whats going on.

We don't get that brand over here unfortunately. It was a choice between betty, a local brand I've had bad luck with before and the supermarket's own brand. I just looked at the recipe I used to make regularly and it looks a lot easier than I remember so I might try making that one in a few days. I was a teenager and only learning to cook back then so that's probably why I remember it being difficult.
