Talk about consumerism, criticize consumerism, talk about niche and fandom specific consumerism, talk about consoom tendencies, collections, hoards and addiction. If you are a consoomer yourself feel free to talk about it in this thread, same with people who are now reformed consoomers. And if you did get over it, tell us why or how it happened.
Please refrain to engage in brand wars, we're here to point and laugh/cringe at people's crazy consummerism tendencies, whether they are candle obsessed wine moms or pink setups and shein loving zoomers.
Any sustainability talks should be put in the sustainability thread

Apart from all the consoomerism, another thing I hate about anime rooms is that they all look the same, I cannot stand the led lights trend as well, hope it dies soon and people cringe thinking how their room looked like that.

Any perfume collectors or possibly consoomers? I haven't lived with my mom for a good while now but she used to buy perfumes almost obsessively, but has stopped now. Whenever I go to visit there's just an entire box of unused perfumes set aside to be sold. How the fuck do you check secondhand perfume prices? Surely someone's buying…
My favorite is Dior's hypnotic poison, I have no idea if it's considered good or not, just that it's one of the first my mom bought for me as a young adult.

I will admit to having matching containers (real Tupperware, even) for everything in my pantry, fridge, and freezer. For me, it's easier to deal with food and keep everything fresh/visible/usable when it's organizers in these containers rather than the random different packages that everything comes in. Also, I probably have some mild form of OCD; the neatness and visual consistency is relaxing to me.

I buy food in bulk because I hate grocery shopping but love to cook (and eat). Costco is my favorite store that is not a book store. But, I mostly buy and eat whole foods and ingredients versus the kinds of foods shown in the pantry org videos. And I eat every single scrap of everything that I buy. For me, the only judgment that I have toward the people in the pantry videos is that they too often let food go to waste. What's the purpose of "organizing" if you're just going to let that happen?

I used to collect beanie babies as a kid and then beanie boos as an adult. I gave a bunch to a charity shop a while back because most (the boos) were from an ex so.. memories. He'd be an asshole and then buy me a 7 euro plush to make it up to me lol. The size of the collection really told a story when you consider that.

I've wanted to pick out 2 new ones that are self bought and that won't turn into a collection. I have one tiny triangular shelf that I wanted to stick 2 on and be done. I looked in a store months back and I nearly bought one but spotted a hole before reaching the cashier. I left it. Eventually I order 2 online and they arrive today… one is fine. Other had its head hanging off. I used to have so many of these things and never encountered holes for years. When you go on amazon it's popping up alot now in reviews.

No one would feel the need to collect tens of sanrio plushies or buy aesthetic animu roomdecor if we didn't slave away at some useless job behind a screen 40 hours a week to make money to buy food we rely on others to produce only to go home to look at some more screens.

>why do you need your fridge to be aesthetic

See, I feel the exact opposite. Why shouldn't your fridge be aesthetic? Why shouldn't every inch of your personal space be a reflection of your own vision and values? Artists have been doing that for centuries. The difference between them and the people in these videos is that most of the influencers aren't really defining a vision or aesthestic for themselves. They're just buying what some company has decided to sell and promote as desirable in order to line its own pockets. There's no soul in it, just conspicuous consumption. Passive consoomerism vs. active creativity.

because constantly having to reflect your identity through everything you do/have gets exhausting really fast. And imo it's kinda pointless too since other people will never view you the way you want to bee perceived (kinda like the way you don't become something by calling yourself that thing, but when other people say you are. If that makes sense). And also, having an "aesthetic" is so overrated and stupid and it all just seems like insecurity manifesting itself.

No. 1018242

>>1018203
Aesthetics are first and foremost about something looking pretty or visually pretty, that's hardly reflecting of your vision and values if you ask me. A fridge full of recycled and thrifted glass jars and containers sure doesn't look ~aesthetic~ but it does reflect someone's values regarding sustainable living or whatever.

NTA but I think it goes without saying that you should only bother with aesthetics if it actually brings you happiness. If it exhausts you and you only care about how other people see you, it's not worth it. But if organising your fridge makes you feel better in your space, it's a nice thing to do.

As cheesy as it is, I apply the 'sparks joy' concept to stuff like that. All this hoarding consoomer shit does not spark joy for me but I definitely cultivate my space so that it does, ensuring stuff used in your mundane daily life is appealing does make a difference.

I've been thinking about your question anon, I'm not super knowledeable on modern art but I do look at some of it sometimes. I can't remember a really good contempory piece on the subject unfortunately, it feels like we might have reached a peack during pop art on this thematic.

I've been thinking on this same topic for a while. I think there's a huge difference between doing something because of an exercise in creativity/reflecting what you like to see in your own surroundings and just doing something to upload it to aesthetic tik tok. "Aesthetic" used in the modern sense carries an air of doing something just to be seen and it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Decorating yourself and your surroundings according to personal taste is very human behavior, all of us have the urge to do it, (if you were stranded on an island and had free time, wouldn't you decorate your lean-to with seashells to add a glimmer of happiness in a shit situation?) But boiling it down to being just cut-and-paste "aesthetic" is ingenuine, it's sanitized and empty. You can tell that a lot of people featured ITT only care about uploading an aesthetic video or photo after buying the "right" things to be considered "aesthetic" by faceless viewers. That's fucking weird. But I think if a person decorates every inch of their space with patterns and styles that they themselves find happiness in without believing they have to spend money in order to truly express themselves, then that's no different from our ancestors painting on cave walls. The girl in the video, however, is greatly reducing the shelf life of the food in her fridge just for a video. That's why I find it pointless. If she really wanted to, she could find nice-looking containers for her things and just keep that little novelty to herself. Not everything you do needs to be blasted on every corner of the internet for random people's likes and views.

Every aesthetic is such a firm concept. I'm already stressed about wanting to wear black or pink clothes depending on day. Well, imagine wanting to live in 2 clashing aesthetics. What a mess! I'm a firm believer in your house reflecting your mind, which is troublesome as it negatively affects my impulsivity stemming from being mental. I think it's fucking great to see things related to your obsessions around you. I want to live in my own world. NGL I've felt bad for a moment that my flat doesn't have an kawaii uguu aesthetic (I'm not a zoomer, I promise). Thanks to you all and this thread, I recognize that having things pertaining to completely different interests is where it's at. I'm ashamed of buying into the aesthetics meme for even a moment and judging my space negatively for that reason.

Why does your fridge have to be an expression of anything? You put the food in there and you get the food out, it’s just an essential thing you need to use to keep your food fresh.

I disagree. I think whether it's creative, rather than consoomerism or simple utility (a lot of food packaging doesn't actually keep food fresh once its opened), depends on why you're doing it. And it can be a combination of things.

>>1018242
>Aesthetics are first and foremost about something looking pretty or visually pretty, that's hardly reflecting of your vision and values if you ask me.

I definitely value beauty. Always have. I am a very visual person and will always choose the pretty (to me) option if given a choice because that is truly important to me. There is more than enough ugliness in the world. I don't have to settle for it in my home. I make choices that included beauty along with all of my other values.

It is in part a shallow aesthetic about minimalism, morning yoga, and acai bowls, but idealising organisation as an 'aesthetic' helped me progress in life better, just following a morning routine that kept me cleaned, exercised, and healthily fed, all before the sun came up, with a clean room too helped me manage time and my health better.

Fill a basin with oxiclean and water (it'll give the ratio on the side), soak your clothes in them for up to two hours, then rinse. Repeat with fresh water until they're back to their original colors. Oxyclean can damage fabric, so be careful with how long you use it on natural fibers and don't use it all on silk or wool.

>for fading

Group clothes with similar colors together. Buy fabric dye that works on whatever types of fabric you have, and use as directed. For pastels, you can try just watering down a regular dye if you're feeling brave, or buy actual pastel dye. A lot of dyes today can just be tossed into the washing machine, which is really convenient. In the future, only wash clothes with cold water to prevent fading.

It seems like I’m not the only one that likes the look of maximalist (idk if you could call pic tel maximalist or just cluttered) aesthetics, but hesitant or unwilling to actually make their living spaces reflect their personal tastes. In my house when I was growing up, a lot of the living room was filled with stuff , which were mostly utilitarian in use ,such as mainly storage boxes and suitcases, and I hated how it looked, so a part of me torn between having non-utilitarian stuff for the sake of it simply looking nice and the reality that I should probably just stick to utilitarian stuff but try to hide it away

I hate soulless quasi-Scandinavian IKEA interiors, I could never feel comfortable in a place that doesn't feel like my own. I used to live with an ex who was a minimalist in the aesthetics sense and wanted to kms every morning when I woke up.

I'd try to get out this thought as good as I can.
Can modern veganism being seen as a consoom move?
Lately I've been interesed in vegan products since I didn't like meat so much to begin with, I was an extremely picky child and that stuck with me in adult age and I was happy to hear that more veggie and vegan option were added to supermarkets but when I got there they were SO processed and in SO MUCH plastic, it made me feel terrible. I hate processed food and I think that maybe getting two eggs from your local farm, and luckily I live in a country where you can easily find farmers, it's better than buying "vegan cheese" wrapped in tons of plastic and made out of almonds and other nuts. This is half sustainability and half consoom, but when I see vegan people feeling good just because they "respect animals" but then import shit from the other side of the world and fill their carts with plastic I die inside, why not buying fruit and veggies and make stuff by yourself, instead of falling for the "Corporations Care" meme?
This is not about the vegan choice per se, more like why going crazy when some big corporation announces vegan options with bright colors wrapped in plastic and are made to be appealing and to be consoomed, instead of focusing on the roots, those being fresh fruits, mushrooms, nuts and vegetables?

In pic, Lidl. I searched "vegan lidl" and this made my skin crawl

We're the same. I personally love some XIXth century styles interior (especially the neo gothic ones) as well as traditional interior from various countries. Pic related encapsulates pretty well what I like : deep colors, luxurious curtains, comfy rugs, beautiful wood, and fairy tale mirrors. I hate minimalist aesthetic, it's antithetic to the historical and folkloric aesthetics of every single one human culture. It's yet another example of post modernism destroying beauty.

I definitely see where you're coming from, but I think it's more a consequence of American consumerism in general than a specifically vegan thing. Variations on pastes made out of beans (tofu, falafel etc) have been made for ages without all the extra branding & packaging. In a similar vein, people have been making cheese for centuries, but it's a pretty uniquely modern phenomenon to buy it in single-serve quantities in plastic containers with cringey branding.

Food (vegan food esp) is definitely marketed in a 'consoom product' kind of way. But I don't think that should put you off veganism if you're doing it for animal mistreatment.

>It looks good aesthetically but there's no way they're keeping this clean and I can never look at any cluttered room, no matter how aesthetically pleasing, and get over that fact
It's easier than you think. A feather duster does the job just fine, I dust once a week. You just don't stack too much on open surfaces like tables because putting that away is annoying, but a coffee table book or a lamp is fine. I don't know why everyone is acting like the only way to keep things clean is to live in a sterile padded cell, people have lived in homes like that for many years and cleaned it just fine. Have you never been to a famous scientist or author's home? Brooms and dusters exist.

Ayrt, the thing is that I grew up with half of my family being farmers, my grandma would usually send me to fetch off the eggs from the chickens she had, but I didn't like meat at all, I don't like the flavour, texture (if something requires me to chew more than 30 seconds is trash) and all, the point is that growing up in a european countryside I always saw naturally no-waste products, naturally no processed food and all but obviously, in winter we had to rely on animals as if many vegetables won't survive, that's why when I grew up in a larger city I cringed when people said they respected life by eating vegan when vegan means processed food in plastic for them. It's not about the vegan diet per se, I repeat, is more like how people are missing the entire point if they pollute the environment with packagings. There's no point in buying metal straws if you buy processed vegan food and claim to be an animal lover, that's the point.
Same thing with people buying "vegan leather" which is essentially plastic, the "eco/green/sustainable" label is there to appeal to people but it's no different, if not worse, from animal derivates.

True, but a lot of it is no worse than mass-produced omni/veggie options, especially with the plastic packaging or shipping form overseas. Though there are some notable vegan alternative offenders like agave syrup, depending on where you live.
I'm definitely guilty of it though. I kind of see it as picking your battles e.g. caring about animal rights isn't negated just because you also want a soy burger. Though I know that's not a good argument either, problem is when I try to think about how I need to do better it's just exhausting.
But you're 100% right about the marketing for this stuff. Eat the vegan cheese, or don't eat the cheese, that company definitely does not care about the environment. It's even worse with Veganuary rn.

Some vegan leather is good though, at least in terms of quality lasting over time.

If you ever go to Japan once the borders reopen just sell them to any Mandarake. If you go to Tokyo and mostly have BL or idol dojinshi go to the Mandarake in Ikebukuro. They probably won't give you a lot of money unless you own anything made by famous artists but it's better than throwing them away. I remember when Livejournal was popular, a lot of users would sell their dojinshi and merchs in fan communities, no idea what would be the equivalent today though.

But as for your question just sell them online, if you've hoarded from the same artist you could try selling them as a bulk if you just want to get rid of them, that's what I do.

Veganism is actually hugely damaging to the environment.
To list just a few consequences
>importing vegan foods dumps more CO2 and petrochemicals into the atmosphere
>importing vegan foods also causes food poverty in the poor countries where the food is grown
>soy and palm oil are common vegan food ingredients that are huge cash crops so rain forest is destroyed so they can be grown for profit
>artificial fertilizer and pesticides used in crop production decimate ecosystems and poison water sources

A lot of this also applies to the standard modern diet but most non-vegans aren't under some sort of delusion that they're saving the planet by eating processed soy in plastic.

Take this with a grain of salt because I can't back this up with proper sources but I feel like overpopulation, globalism and a sense of entitlement to foods produced in climates that aren't your own is the overarching problem and eating meat or not eating meat in itself, is not. I bet either diet would be fine if the world didn't have a population this large and people didn't import shit from across the globe and just ate local produced foods. Assuming we're talking about veganism from a sustainability point of view anyway and not from an animal-friendliness point of view. Personally I think animals can be eaten in an ethical manner but not everyone agrees.

Vegans only care about fellow vegan human beings from first world countries. Like Brigitte Bardot. Reminds me that I used to follow Hamletmachine on tumblr and then on twitter for her sfw art and she would alternate between posting extremly degenerate content and whining about "meat eaters" killing innocent "people" (as in, animals we tend to eat).

I firmly believe that some vegans are outright self hating sociopaths.
They share happy cows but don't care about sweatshops that are producing their clothes, protest for animal rights but don't contribute to clean water for everyone, manifest for a clean and safe world but are against medicines ("muh animal testing is bad!!" yeah you entitled fuck, then perish, we didn't extend our life span by years of research just for you to shit on it), scream for "Animal Equity" and would foster some animals, sometimes without even proper knowledge, saved from muh slaughterhouses but wont host a homeless person, won't eat the product of the bees but would eat child slave quinoa.

Artificial fertilizers are only creating more problems anyway because they destroy the soil with long-term use. It's said that the quality (or rather degradation) of soil world-wide is a more pressing matter than the warming of the earth yet you never hear anyone about it. It takes many years for soil to recover so few in the agricultural industry are willing to make the switch to more sustainable, natural farming methods.

I'm in favour of small farms producing food for the local community with sustainable farming methods but I wonder if that's possible on a large scale with the size of the earth's population.

My dad is a fridge hoarder and it's terrible. It looks like your pic except other types of random shit. I can't grocery shop once a week and just go through my groceries throughout the week (I cook for myself and my idiot brother since my parents work until late at night) because he packs the fridge with random shit. He bought a second fridge "because the first one is packed" like no duh and it's your fault. I had to stop buying my carton of soymilk because he got pissed at the space it took up. A single carton of soymilk because my family is lactose intolerant and I'm the only one not stupid enough to drink milk (which we have).

Maybe like 20% of the fridge is actually food you can prepare and eat. The rest of it is endless amounts of sauces, tons and tons of juice, lots of expensive Chinese medicial herbs, and all little other bits of random shit he brings home from the restaurant he works at. It's infuriating because god forbid I buy a head of broccoli and don't get to cook it that night, then he gets mad because my broccoli is taking up space. Uh, do you… not see everything else that is yours? Our freezer broke down and instead of letting me get a repairman in (that I offered to pay for) he went out and bought a chest freezer. Filled that shit up too.

I buy fresh food for my dog and it has to be kept in the freezer and I pull out a pack to defrost as I need it. I literally ask for one little shelf or one little space just to have to put our dog's food in. As soon as space starts freeing up, he filled it up. He looooooooooves to wrap mystery meat in a brick of plastic wrap and put it in the freezer. There's tons and tons of these little packs of whatever fucking meat in the freezer. I thought maybe with a chest freezer that was quite a big size, we'd have some room and leeway now. Nope, it's filled up again. It drives me up the fucking wall. Our original freezer started working again and now he's filled that up too. What's the entire top shelf? ICE. He bought those molds that make ice balls (that people use a lot for bathbombs) and now has a bunch of ice balls up in the freezer. Our fridge has a ice maker/dispenser.

Fridge hoarding drives me up the wall. I'm always the one who gets yelled at for not eating what's in the fridge but the majority of it is either garbage food that no one wants to eat because none of us even asked him to bring it home, sauces, or some other random shit. He gets mad at everyone else when we run out of space but seems blind to the fact that he can easily solve his own problem by throwing out his own shit from the fridge.

Before anyone says "just clean out the fridge", I don't want to deal with 1) cleaning out his stuff because he won't learn and will just refill the space, and 2) don't want to deal with his inevitable tantrum that I've seen him throw when my mom cleans out the fridge. I long for the day I can have a fridge that other normal families have, even if it would be a bit messy.

Immature men and autists shouldn't be allowed to manage their own money. This is not the first time I've heard something like this.
I knew a person who hoarded flour, water and eggs to make pasta and it was mandatory for him and everyone else to eat his homemade pasta at least once a week, of course he had a meltdown and threw tantrums if people moved his stuff to store other things like their own goddamn food or didn't want to eat that. Of course then he would make the pasta and never clean afterwards only to cry about the kitchen being dirty, he was diagnosed with a mental illness tho or maybe he was just a typical self entitled scrote.

This exactly. My dad doesn't have a bank account and his paychecks go directly into my mom's account and she handles all of their money, but he's allowed credit cards for some reason and has thousands of dollars in credit card debt. He's a huge consoomer, but not like anyone posted in this thread who sticks to a theme. He will buy any and everything. Facebook marketplace is now the bane is my existence because he buys so much junk. He will not sell anything on there, he just buys and buys and buys. He used to frequent those federal auction websites too. I mentioned how I'd like a tea set once because we have a small chinese one that we sometimes used and I thought it'd be nice to have one of my own, and he goes on that stupid website and buys a rusting ~*~antique~*~ tea set and got mad that I wouldn't use it. Um, I'm pretty sure it's a display only piece. My parents also shop at costco and BJs. They rarely buy prepackaged frozen foods, but we have 6 bottles of listerine just sitting on the floor when only my dad uses it, not to mention lots of other stuff like shampoo and toothpaste just piling up.

I think the only reason why I'm not a super rabid consoomer is because I am filled with a sense of dread because of my dad's consooming. This is not the type of person I want to be. This is not the type of place I want to live in. I don't want to live in a shiny, sleek minimalist magazine display, I just want to live like a normal person.

Go to your local farmer's market. It tough to get a real list of local foods because most of the foods we're used to are grow locally, but not naturally if that makes sense. Like, I'm pretty sure all the classic vegetables & fruits that we're used to were brought over by the Europeans & are not native to NA. That's what Johnny Appleseed was all about lol.

>there's literally no evidence that importing vegan foods reduces access to food in poor countries beyond specific edge cases like quinoa and avocados

"a pain in the ass to prepare at home"
Are you american or just retarded? Fried rice and veggies are the laziest of the laziest food you could prepare at home, it's also street food in many parts of Europe and Asia. Learn how to cook.
Anyway, for those things you quoted, just think that you can grow your own livestock all year, if you want some specific vegetables or fruits, you have to import that shit. Also, yes, there's soy for the animals but that can be bypassed if you buy your meat locally, meanwhile, try to get those sweet almonds or tofu from anywhere that isn't asia.

>you should buy your toddler an ipad
I'm convinced that this (in addition to other shitty parenting trends) is a huge contribution to the current cohort of childrens' failure to thrive. There's a critical period of development between the ages of 2-6 where children's brains adapt to their environment; for example, australian aborigines develop strong spatial perception skills in order to navigate terrain with few landmarks. Guess what happens when you expose your kid to oversaturated, rapid-paced, narrative-free stimuli?

Ipad children are why we have so many ADHD adults, I stg. All children's programming has devolved anyway. Mr Rogers used to make sure never to do jump cuts bc he said exactly what you did - that his target audience was at the age when they were still forming their worldview, so it would convince them that life is supposed to more faster than it really does if you were to see him 'teleporting' from the living room to the garden without walking in between.

The pic shows fritters, which are about as difficult and time-consuming to prepare as chicken nuggies. And as with chicken nuggies, it's crappy junk food and the cost x benefit for making them at home is low.
>try to get those sweet almonds or tofu from anywhere that isn't asia
Most almonds are grown in California, and American-made tofu is easy to find because soy is grown virtually everywhere to feed livestock. But the 'well you can just buy local' cope falls apart easily given that the vast majority of both vegans and non-vegans don't put any effort into researching where their food is coming from; the only real difference is that red meat is objectively more destructive to the environment given the energy that ruminants require, and the increase in worldwide red meat consumption is why soy is being pushed into everyone's diet.

You're 100% right and they're just using the toy to keep the baby quiet while they play Call of Duty or Candy Crush. My mother managed to raise me in a post-Soviet hellscape, yet you'd think parents now have to go to war from how they talk about how hard parenting is. It is hard, but that's why you deliberately make this choice and plan carefully who to have kids with.
My cousin is such a lazy bitch and I feel bad for my niece (don't know the right term in English) because she doesn't even bother to put on some nice cartoons for her like Krtek or Moomins. Only dumb YouTube baby nursery rhymes over and over, she won't even sing any to her herself. My mom told her many times what to do but she doesn't really care.
OTOH, another thing I've noticed is that parents can be very bitchy to other parents and there's a lot of pressure to enrol your kid in 100 different elite classes and activities that the child doesn't even care about. They seem very afraid of letting their kid be bored and nobody lets their kids out to play by themselves in my neighborhood anymore. When I was a kid, my mom let me play outside with my friends and didn't know what I got up to until lunch time, now the mom has to go with the kid everywhere and keep watch. I see kids go up to their parents and expect to always be entertained too. That shit must be exhausting so in a way I get them.
These kids seem both over- and underparented at the same time.

Video games for kids used to be educational. I remember trying to play Pokemon Blue as a kid at release and not understanding every word so I'd look them up in the dictionary. We would have games to would teach us maths and vocabulary and shit like that, and even games made to just be fun were interactive enough to make you use your brain fairly often. Watching videos on youtube is just too passive.

In the book Buy, Buy Baby mentioned in the last thread, there was at least a chapter of the book devoted to 'educational' early childhood programming that put forth evidence that it is useless at best, and in the case of more rapid-paced and visually stimulating programs, actively harmful to cognitive development. This was pre-smartphone so I can't imagine how much worse the situation is now. Of course, preventing a kid from having any access to media is completely unrealistic, but I would never let an infant or young child have access to a touchscreen or youtube. This in and of itself would likely give a child an advantage over their peers, everything else held equal.

That's sad. Being bored as a kid is what made me develop hobbies of my own. I distinctly remember whining to my mum on a rainy day that "moooom I'm bored" and she was just like "then find something to do, lazy child. You think adults have fun activities like art time & music time lined up for them to do every day like I organize for you?"
Something I've also heard from teachers that I know is that kids aren't interested in tech class anymore. They've got really cool shit like VR headsets, and they're trying to make engaging activities like CREATING A GD VR GAME YOURSELF. When my friend mentions this to people in their 20s-30s, they think it's the coolest thing ever & want to be in her class. The kids don't care though. They'd rather stare at their cell phones. They don't want to learn or produce anything of value, only consume what's already been created.

I don't see many actives in her hoard that would cause such sensitization.

If she actually uses all that frequently she'd just be over-moisturized like a lot of the sticky faced skinfluencers and posters on r/skincareaddiction. But there is no way she's giving enough time to work out which products do what for her skin, that takes at least a month of adding only one new product and observing. And the point is that people like this don't really care or do it for their skins health.

This is the part of the skincare industry that isn't about care but capitalizing on the "self-care" trend where everyone take selfies with masks on and using jade rollers.

Artificial fertilizer is basically produced from three chemicals, nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus. The main source of potassium is phosphorite and the main source of phosphorus is potash both of which are open pit mined. Open pit mining is extremely hazardous for both humans and animals. Once the pit has been depleted it leaves behind mine tailings which are what is left over after ore has been separated from rock. Tailings contain toxic and sometimes radioactive metals that enter the air as dust which then enters the atmosphere. If you want a worst case scenario for this look into Picher in Oklahoma. The other major hazard caused by mining is acid mine drainage. Rain water floods disused mines and the exposed ore dissolves into the water which then runs off into rivers and pollutes ground water.

If you want to know why veganism is being pushed so hard by major corporations follow the money. Companies such as Dow Chemical, Monsanto and Bayer stand to gain massive profits from the increased use of artificial fertilizer, pesticides and GMO crops. These are the companies behind such persistent organic pollutants as polychlorinated biphenyl, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane and polychlorinated dibenzofurans.

Most people just don't care or are lead to believe in false solutions. Big chemical companies have been polluting the environment for over one hundred years. What usually happens is that they are allowed to produce a chemical until it's undeniable that it causes damage to life and the environment. Children are born dead and deformed, people die of cancer or are crippled by autoimmune diseases. The government bans the chemical and the tax payer then has to pay for the production site's remediation and clean up of toxic waste. The big companies move on to something else and the process repeats.

I have a retarded coping mechanism.

Looking at vintage dresses on eBay puts me in a good mood. If I’m feeling upset, I look up 60s mod dresses, the super short type with the gathered waist and skater skirts and slightly puffed sleeves. I look up vintage Gunne Sax capes. I save dozens of tabs full of 1970s dresses, vintage patchwork skirts, 1960s mod dresses and early 70s tartan coats, black vintage dresses with fitted bodices and slightly puffed sleeves, and I have been mourning lately the fact that I will never be able to afford any of that because of where I live and the fact that I’m a poorfag, but mostly I’ve been mourning the fact that I’ll never touch the Victorian Maiden Ivory Petit Fours Skirt, and the Jane Marple Russian Doll skirt. Whoever has the money to buy that skirt, I hate them. If there is one hater of the buyer of the Jane Marple Russian Doll skirt, it’s me.

Kind of a dull take. At the end of the day, all production is driven by consumer preference. There’s a particularly large amount of clothing waste being generated right now because buyers show a strong preference for shopping from a huge selection of low cost styles. This guarantees that any company that tries to cater to the average shopper will find it advantageous to go wide with their stocking, which leads to large amounts of unsold inventory. Pretending that this has nothing to do with consumers feels like just another way to shrug off responsibility.

I posted a picture of an open pit mine because I was discussing open pit mining and I posted a picture of acid mine drainage for the same reason. The example I gave of the destruction caused by mine tailings was actually caused by lead mining. All mining is environmentally destructive and causes the same issues.

Mining is not sustainable because earth minerals are not an infinite resource. Multibillion dollar mining companies extract phosphorite and potash from the ground through mining, profiting from the destruction of the environment. Phosporite and potash is then processed by multibillion dollar chemical companies with a disgusting environmental record. Hint Monsanto was the main manufacturer of agent orange, a deadly herbicide contaminated with dioxin, Bayer used slave labour provided by concentration camps and manufactured Zyklon B, Dow Chemical is the parent company of Hooker Chemical who caused the Love Canal disaster which was so bad it lead the formation of the US Superfund and Union Carbide which was responsible for the explosion of the Bhopal pesticide plant. These companies then sell their artificial fertilizer and pesticides at a profit to be sprayed onto monocrops which depletes the soil and pollutes the environment.

Production aims to never miss out on demand- wasted manufacturing costs are easier to bear than not meeting seller's demands and end consumers going elsewhere.

If the consumer culture were to change massively (ending fashion trends as we know it) perhaps we'd have a chance at stopping some of this damage- but to be honest it's more likely that things will only get worse as evident by gen z's Shein craze.

In the ideal world garments just need to be revolutionized; if there were a way to both make consumers desire long lasting well made pieces and stop being lured by "sales" (a full outfit used to cost at least the equivalent of a few months work either in labor or currency for most of human history, our expectations are extremely spoiled today) while also ensuring the processing from start to finish is rooted in the natural, we would at least halt the damage to our planet.

Stupid, pretending that consumers are responsible for deliberate massive overproduction and dumping of brand new clothes in nature is ridiculous. People may be naive or willingly ignorant about the fast fashion industry practices but they're not asking for this. Putting the blame on the consumer for this is 100% beyond reason, no consumer is putting knife to the industry's necks and demanding for them to do this. The industry needs to take responsibility, they're the ones placing orders and producing clothing. And let's not forget it's also the fashion industry who're brainwashing the general public into buying more and more and more, they're the ones pushing trends and for the disposal of clothing after 1 season. They're the ones who stand to gain uncomprehensible amounts of money from their practices, not the consumer, they're the ones with the money and power to innovate the industry, not the consumer.

I already talked about how I managed to declutter my shelves because I sold a bunch of video games, DVDs and manga I don't care about anymore in the previous thread, and now I'm thinking about how I still have some small notebooks I've bought for university that I didn't use after all. I also have a bunch of pens because I accumulated them thanks to jobs despite barely using the ones I bought before that. I'm wondering how I could use them to not waste them. I usually take notes on my phone if I don't have paper on me, and I already gave a lot of paper and larger notebooks to my youngest sister because she needed them for high school and now for university. I've already been thinking about using one small notebook to write recipes I can't find online (or the ones online are shit) but my mother just won't give me her recipes because she always forgets about it.

Pls no sperg But I relate to anons who have a small obsession with stationary. However, I did end up selling a lot of my stationary collection and after getting an iPad and slowly going paperless I feel so much better. Even just a google document/ digital notepad works just as well. (I don’t think I could go digital art only though, but I don’t hoard art supplies anyway)
I’m not completely paperless since I’m still a little paranoid about my digital stuff getting deleted for some dumb reason so I’m keeping 1 notebook that will let me keep a physical paper archive without it taking up too much space. I plan on getting a scanner too so I can get rid of some sketchbooks/journals/art books but still have pdfs of the images. Also would anons be interested in a thread where we could dump stuff like art book pdfs? I haven’t checked /m/ in a while.

I started consooming way more over the past two years. Pandemic isolation + new high salary + getting married meant buying lots more things than usual. I used to really shudder at the thought of buying unnecessary things, but I've definitely gotten addicted to the 'soom.

My worst offense is getting into scented candles and scented body care (lotions, shower gels, perfumes). I essentially have a mini-store in my closet. I know it's because I'm bored and lonely.

I agree but also kind of understand. A lot of ticket stubs these days are pretty ugly if they even have printed tickets anymore, most people opt for digital nowadays.

Ok just for context I began collecting manga when I was 10 (12 years ago) so I had a lot of incomplete sets but still valuable and out of print ones. Started collecting again when I was 18, so I had complete sets of out of print mangas that are still sought after. Also some one shots here and there. I think I've sold more than 40 volumes in a span of two weeks. Hit the jackpot because the underage weebs were full of christmas pocket money. I made 1.2k in my currency, about 950 bucks went into my wallet (the rest were taxes and shipping stuff).
When I made the listings, I checked Amazon and other secondhand websites to have a general idea of how much I could ask. I did not sell them with the intention of making a huge profit, because 1. fuck scalpers lol it's just books and 2. it's better to sell with a lower margin of profit than have it sitting unsold and collecting dust. I also offered a 15 to 20% discount if they wanted another set.
I used Shopee, no idea if it's available where you live.
Take some good pics showing the front, back, and color of the pages (no idea why but some people are REALLY anal about yellowing paper) and answer questions quickly. Hope I helped!

I've never heard of shopee but apparently it's available in my country, so I'll keep that in mind. Honestly I think I sold way more books than you did but never got that much money from selling them because I sold these books to secondhand stores that would give me 1.5€ to 2€ per books, unless I agreed to be payed in coupons which is counterproductive in my case. As for Momox (it's a secondhand online) the prices really depended on what I sold and the demand. For example I got like 50 cents for the first volume of Quantum Devil Saga and I got nearly 40€ for the second volume. On top of that manga in my country have always been popular so people go to bookstore to buy them before looking online for secondhand copies. It's funny, what I kept is mostly older series that are out of print or that have new, better editions because I won't be able to sell these manga anyway but I genuinely can't find good scans for them either online.

I also bought a few manga on Vinted and what's called Leboncoin (basically craiglist but French) right after getting rid of a lot of books and some of the prices I've seen were just straight up insulting. Scalpers really are pieces of shit, if you want the regular 5 volumes of Paradise Kiss with yellow pages and slightly damaged covers be ready to spend between 80€ and 120€ on them. The series has been released recently in a all in one edition but the book's cover has a horrible quality and it's so thick it looks like a dictionary.

If the paper has any yellowing or marks rubbing a piece of sandpaper on it will make it look better.

I also made more selling certain series volumes individually than what I would have gotten if they sold as a set.

Scalpers really think their books are made of gold lmao get off your high horse man it's just pieces of paper glued to each other after all

As someone who changed their style after loss of a very close person to me, I have some advice.
Buy new articles of clothing slowly and keep most of your old stuff unless you have no space left in your closet. Changing your whole style in a short span isn't a good idea as you will mostly only buy similar styles of clothes and get bored of dressing like that after a while.
Try to buy 1-2 articles of clothing that you really love each time you go shopping so you dont buy stuff you dont like just to buy new things.
Also dont do a capsule wardrobe. Clothes are a way we express ourselves, especially as women as we have a wider variety of choices than men. Buy clothes that you love seeing yourself in instead of basics that make you invisible. Throwing out all of your stuff and buying a new capsule wardrobe isn't good for the environment either, don't throw away your perfectly fine clothes just to jump on the trend.

>>1021833
If you want to redo your whole wardrobe do it little by little or you'll end up buying some clothes you'll forget about or you'll regret buying and you'll wear them way less than the rest. What I do whenever I need to buy more clothes is that I go to several stores just to try clothes and see what I'll like the most or what looks like shit on me, then once I'm done with that I buy what I like with the "click and collect" features some stores have to make sure they have my size when I go there.

Sage for samefagging, now that I often work from home I'm considering getting some new furniture to have everything in order. I live with my family so I do everything in my room, and I have a desk, but ever since I finished studying I put my TV on this desk. I'm considering using the desk for my work laptop and getting a low table for my TV because it's a small one and I use it only for video games. On top of that I want a chair like pic related but they all seem very expensive for some reason, at the lowest they're a bit above 50€. Are they worth the price?

We had those for games as kids where the back could click to lay down except over time it wore down so I wouldnt even recommend that. Pic related is what I mean by a solid L shape. I have a gaming chair since 2017 or so instead of my old ikea one and for me my back doesnt feel any pain after 8-15 hours of sitting in it. Mine is a clutch XXL size because I wanted the seat large enough for crossing my legs in a pretzel or fuck all position. They go on clearance semi regularly so the normal price is a bit of a lie. It got me through having to practically lay down on it from surgery issues that hurt way too much to let my torso crease. Its downside is the underseat is an entire pain in the ass for cleaning out.

All of my family calls me a "minimalist" because I live in a really small apartment and just physically cannot store very much. I'm not a minimalist, I just have to think about where something will go before I buy it. For context, my kitchens' only cabinet can store 2 mugs, 2 cups, 2 plates, and 1 bowl, and that's all I have for dinnerware. The rest of my apartment is similarly limited and I don't even have a closet for clothes so I have to really manage what I own and purge things when new stuff comes in. So each year for Christmas I request for them to not get me anything (they NEVER do this, but I truly would love if there was one year no one got me anything) or if they must, get me "consumables", like lotion, soap, coffee, candy, etc. They've slowly started buying that I'm not just outright lying to them and I've been happy to receive more small items but honestly this year was insane.

I was handed a gift from a family member as she announced, "I know youre a minimalist so I got you something helpful." And she hands me pic related. It's a giant bagel slicer. I can't tell if shes joking initally, but I realize she isn't. I feel so bad… I think they only really use these in cafes where they need to cut 500 bagels in succession. It's heavy, it's made of plastic, and it's got a huge blade so I immediately know she didn't consider that I flew in and now I'll have to spend $30 to check my bag on the airplane. I feel like such an asshole but just, what is the thought process exactly? I've kept it for now just out of guilt and finally got some bagels to try to give it at least one use. It doesn't work at all. It's an as-seen-on-TV product that borders on being a gag-gift. It's got so much plastic on it I feel horrible for throwing it away, but it's also not even something I could give to someone. I just feel like no one takes more than a few moments to consider the apartment they all know I live in and what might be impractical for me. I put a lot of thought into other peoples gifts and try to be considerate. What do you girls usually do with gifts that you can't use or don't need?

I am now dreaming of dresses and having half-forgotten visions of dresses completely unprompted before I sleep and sometimes in the middle of the day.

I feel like most of this thread is just people bashing on weebs which is more of a personal preference, but what do i know, i own a decent amount of kawaii shit myself and don't give a fuck about trying to prove to everyone how "adult" i am.

Does anybody remember the time on the youtube where the makeup community would glorify having needless amounts of makeup? It's still excessive compared to the normal woman who wears makeup, but at least there are now channels who are more critical of hoarding and the industry in general. People like that still exist because of reviews but this video is so wild. I also feel like people have moved onto hoarding skin care because it's easier to justify since you use most of it everyday and if you hate it, you can just use it on your body or something.

I just don’t see how people consume so much without realizing how excessive it is to the point you have to realize buying hundreds of skin and makeup stuff that expires is just fucking retarded because it’ll go to waste after you use it a few times because it’s impossible to use so much. Influencers have more money than sense and a lifestyle built on the thrill of buying and consuming product, it’s fascinating and scary to me how people don’t see this shit is just goop and colors to convince mostly women they need to give money to corporations in exchange of looking sexy or youthful. It’s a marketing cycle of building insecurity and creating a perfect purchased solution.

How do you all feel about hiring/renting clothes (and for other goods/services such as a washing machine subscriptions)? I was reading just another article about it today, it seems like they're expecting the fashion for rental-industry to boom in 2022. This particular article I was reading about was fo babies up to 2 years or so, which makes perfect sense: they grow so quickly so it's a great, low-consuming way of dressing your child but I also feel like we're slowly being steered in the way of owning as little as possible to be as reliant on companies providing goods/services as possible (not just with clothes) in the name of "sustainability/low-consumering"

I considered it, but the cost did not justify the benefits of always having new clothes. I used to have a stupid fear of being judged for rewearing clothes too often (I like to wear them at least 2 times before they go into the wash if they haven't got any new stains on them), then I realized that fear was stupid as fuck and no one actually gives a shit unless they're weird consoomers who live off shein and fashionnova tier clothes to just have something to show off. There's a lady at my job who is subscribed to rent the runway, but I think it could be justified for her because she's a news anchor and needs a new outfit for when she appears on TV. I can't think of many other situations where it's necessary. Regular people do not need that new outfits all the time.

I do like the idea of not having more stuff in my apartment so I get the appeal of having new stuff without sacrificing space for it, but it's not worth the price for me. I feel like another dangerous thing about them is I think you can sometimes just keep or buy the clothes they sent you for a discount if you like it? It's the same as marketing emails, they show you shit you don't need and then of course you might think "oh this is really nice, and it fits me so well!" so you think you can't live without it and give them more money on top of the subscription you already pay just to keep it. Awful.

Besides that, I don't think renting certain clothes is that bad, like gowns and fancy clothes or necklaces. There's also ethnic and special clothing you can rent in other countries (example, kimono, cosplay, lolita or maid clothes) that I'm sure some people will probably only use once so that's fine.

When it comes to stuff like Fashion Nova or other type of outrageous eye-catching clothes (could be high fashion too) I also imagine some rental business in the making, since most people rather have crazy Instagram pictures than have an interesting personality. I already know some private jet owners rent their seats for like half an hour or so to certain influencers to take pictures inside them… And they don't even fly anywhere. Lol. It's all for show.

I used to think like you. I thought Lolita was so ugly and off-putting, until I was converted online. There’s just something about taking feminine aesthetic tropes and cranking the volume up to 100 - that decadent excess is very attractive to me, and not in a conventionally pretty way, but in an aesthetically interesting way. It has what I call Feminine, But As A Repellant effect, this ugly visual forcefulness. And it’s very intensely physical, by the way, just look at the excess of petticoats and ruffles and layers, stacks on top of stacks on top stacks, growing into an ugly surplus of fabric made of little parts that are ugly together, but probably visually pleasant apart. That idea is really exciting to me. I also think it’s fun because it subverts those aesthetic tropes; instead of girlish and coy, it’s garish and imposing. Too bad I live in a shithole where I’d get heckled if I ever tried to wear shit like that and I’m too broke to spend my money on clothes anyway. That’s probably for the best, kek.

Is anyone else reading the kf food shortage panic thread? It's a pretty funny look into how whitebread & suburban most terminally online males are. When I first saw the headlines I thought it was something to be concerned about. Then I read a couple comments & it's all moids LARPing as if it's the end times because they're just now learning how to make their own hashbrowns. There's a hilarious dichotomy there between how they act like they're some kinda Mad Max shtf warrior, but then they tell on themselves as clueless city kids with no life skills.

I hope they're trolling. Now they're whinging that pre-mixed sports drinks are available in only one colour lmao. Only the one! These are all food-adjacent products covered in preservatives anyway.

You know when you see a fat bogan with her obese toddler, and the toddler is screaming for some sugary cola drink and dessert in the middle of a fast food restaurant, and you look at the mother and see the sad look in her eyes as she gives in. She knows she's slowly killing little Timmy and so do you, but she just wants to see him happy and quiet, even though he's long due for a heart attack at the age of 4. It's kinda like that.

I fucking hate this trend of "breaking rooms". Like oh, you want to swing around a hammer and hit some stuff? Go work in construction you goddamn dingus. Go build a deck. Work on a farm for fucks sake. Hammer something that actually matters. That's like paying to go to an "office room" with a bunch of your friends where you can sit around in a cubicle and pretend you're crunching numbers. Like what is the fucking point. Are people really this sheltered from normal physical labour?

And also how is this a fun date idea? If the point of a breaking room is supposed to be to release your anger or something then I wouldn't want to be in there with anyone who's getting really into it. It doesn't sound very romantic watching a moid rage at inanimate objects.

Your analogy doesn't make any more sense, in fact it makes less sense now. I'll say it again, people who go to use these places aren't LARPing as a construction worker. I'm trying to understand why you equate this random recreational activity to physical labour, it sounds like you're calling people who enjoy breaking stuff for the fun of it lazy and retarded because they don't break stuff as a job. Why do you assume people who go there have never touched a tool before? It makes no sense. I actually build furniture, but according to you that's impossible because I also like the concept of smashing it for fun. I don't understand why you're so pissed off about it. Writing notes and organizing a calendar isn't going to ease anyone's rage or relieve their stress.

And those people are dumbass consoomers. Cities the size that we have now should not exist. The people that live in them have obvious issues from the lack of community & sheltered lifestyle. People who live in apartments downtown their whole lives are stunted and ignorant to the work that goes into keeping the lights on in their rat cages. Megacities are one of the main root causes for ALL of the things that have been discussed ITT. You think an Alaskan fisherwoman is collecting Funko Pops?

>what are they supposed to smash?

Nothing. If you don't have things that could use breaking then you don't break things. You're acting like people are going to go into withdrawal if they don't get their monthly dose of smash time. This is why I called you a monkey. "But what will they smash?" lmao. You'll live.

Women. Running around in public isn't always safe, even if you live in a "safe" area, and not everyone can afford their own treadmill or may not have space for one if they can afford it.

Gyms =/= smash rooms though. The gym is a place where people can pay to use proper equipment to work out without having to buy their own equipment, but I'm with you that trying to justify going to a rented office & spending money to smash stuff as "stress relief" is coomer af. Can you only destress voilently? Instead try going to a gym, and lifting heavy shit, then putting it down again until you feel better (bc you will).

I feel like people who think like this have to be super sheltered or something. They have absolutely no sense of the size of the global population and how much more efficient large scale production/dense housing is. Hunting, DIY, and growing your own vegetables are cute ideas, but there's simply not enough resources for every person on the planet to live this way.

6 million deer can sustainably be harvested per year in the US - how is that supposed to feed a population of 332 million? India continues to suffer from massive food security problems because its agricultural sector is made up of small farmers with a very low production rate. People who live in rural areas produce huge per capita amounts of emissions because they drive everywhere and have everything they buy trucked massive distances, while NYC residents produce 30% less than the national average per person.

There's so much information to support the idea that homesteading is unsustainable/environmentally inferior to urban living, but people just ignore it so they can play little house on the prairie. Believing that your actions have no impact on the environment just because you're surrounded by nature is disturbingly childlike.

This. Is. Exactly. My. Point. You. Fucking. Retard.
Your solution is to just keep squishing an ever increasing population into less space, where their mental health goes to absolute shit. Your solution is to pack more & more people into communities where they don't even know their neighbour, much less their whole town. Do you realize how detrimental that shift has been to the human psyche? To transition from villages of tens of thousands where everyone knew each other, into unfathomably huge, sprawling metropolises. Where even the most important person is a brick in the wall that can be replaced tomorrow. Where hundreds die every day, and the vast majority of the city has no clue who they are. Where there are so many useless middlemen pushing paper that the concept of adding value to society is now completely divorced from the concept of work.

The Neo word processor doesn't support my language, so it's useless to me and expensive for what it is (100$ for an outdated piece of technology? Nah. And don't give me eBay screenshots, this is how much it costs with shipping and taxes). I love my Traveller, the e-ink screen is heaven to my eyes. It also makes Freewrite machines expensive since even mainstream ebook readers cost a penny and they aren't made by a tiny company (lower cost of parts). I was super lucky to get it for half price. I feel like it's unfair to ignore the superior screen, it really isn't the same as Alphasmart Neo. I think that one Freewrite machine is enough, though. Don't see owning 1 as a consoomer thing, collecting is a bit much unless you are hoping to resell it for 2x as much.
What deserves criticism is how the company deals with technical issues (they make you buy a warranty, wtf).

I'm not being a doomer, sperging at anons about what started off as a debate about break rooms isn't going to make any real change either. Especially when you're calling people retards and ignore the disadvantages that most people have. Most people can't plant a garden, and that isn't their fault. Most people can't afford to join a class action lawsuit, let alone find one in their area that's relevant to their lives, I don't even understand what kind of suggestion that is. You're not thinking about the average person and the system we all live under, and the system is even worse for some. You act like I can just pop outside and plant some carrots like there is fertile land everywhere and I can just use public property to plant my food. You can't just join in a class action lawsuit, you need a lawyer, something the average person can't afford. The average person is under the weight of debt and daily labour, raising families and being brainwashed by their phones. You expect everyone to live up to standards I bet you don't even hold your own self to.

Because that option is inconvenient and unpleasant to use (no way of connecting the keyboard to your smartphone, have to carry it with you everywhere, you write on the keyboard while looking at smartphone in a stand/leaning toward your mug. Tablets are a bit better if you can get a keyboard with a case. There is still an issue of screen that is tiring to look at and everything distracting you).

This is really ignorant, wishful thinking. The fact that there are even anons here arguing against you should show that is it not that easy to get people to change, whether what you work towards is for the greater good or not. There are plenty of people out there who try do steer themselves away from mass consumering and try to discourage others, but clearly it's a small number of people and it will stay small because of social media/marketing brainwashing happening at every corner.

People will not leave cities, because cities are where the jobs are. Why do you think people willingly travel to NYC or LA to "make it big"? You don't have to force people into cities, people will always willingly follow where the money is.

Makeup does not go in the bathroom. Optimal storage conditions for most stuff is a dry, dark, cool place. Not a warm, wet environment like a bathroom. This is especially important when you have a big collection, because chances are you won't be able to use everything up within few months. Things like blushes, bronzers and even palettes can take years. Plus, most bathrooms have shit lighting and aren't ideal for putting on makeup. Natural light is the best.

Working class men are some of the biggest consoomers around. They like to disguise their hoarding by pretending it's utilitarian, but at the end of the day they're buying a ton of equipment and tools that will get one use and then gather dust for decades. They're also rabid brand fanboys, and will buy any flimsy piece of crap if "their brand" puts it out (that's why snap-on makes popcorn makers and toaster ovens).

It's been like this in every male-dominated hobby I've gotten into, whether it's armchair photographers amassing tens of thousands of dollars of lenses or aquarium guys masturbating over their favorite brand of water conditioner. It's annoying to see them constantly get a pass just because they're not amiibo hoarding soyboys.

That's the point, nonna. Makeup doesn't need to come in "big collection". base, one mascara, one eyeshadow palette just to contain some basic colors, lipgloss and you're good. Bronzer looks tacky, highlighter makes your skin look oily and sweaty, it's just being meme'd into instagram beauty standard. Plus, most bathrooms have natural light, unless someone lives in a shitty studio apt. Store those things in a drawer in the opposite side of the shower/tub and voilà.

Makeup does go bad and if you use expired makeup not only will it probably have a shitty consistency, color and sometimes smell, but also break out your skin and clog your pores.

The fact that most people who claim makeup (something that covers perceived imperfections) is "fun" are mainly women is definitely not a coincidence. Men don't find pleasure in altering their features. Idk why you are mad about this fact being brought up? You said you were fine with it being criticized. It is true that it is mostly worn out of insecurity and to look a certain way. Women are suffering from being expected to always look a certain way bc of these products…

NTA and I agree with you, but if you work and live in a certain environment where it's expected of women, there's nothing you can do about it. I don't like putting it on but I'm not about to stop. I get treated much, much better with makeup on, guys are nice to me, hell even women are nicer when I wear it. Unless you have piles of fuck off money and your appearance doesn't affect your prospects in any way, women are gonna keep wearing it. If I were a fat 50-something heiress I sure as hell wouldn't waste my time wearing makeup, but as it is I don't want to stop.

I'm talking on an individual, micro level because that's how this argument started. Yes, on the whole it's harmful and has been used against women for centuries literally who is denying this?
>>1026253
I mean, I move in alt circles and know some dudes who do. But again, not everyone uses it as a crutch or hates putting it on. All I said is that it can be fun under certain conditions. I hate to repeat myself but I'm not denying that the vast majority of women do it out of insecurity, pressure and social expectations. But some of us like smearing shiny paint on our faces for the fun of it.

I'm sorry, but in my honest opinion this pressure to wear makeup is such bullshit. Clearly so many women in this thread don't wear makeup, when you go out on the street a sizeable amount of women aren't wearing makeup. If you feel pressured to wear makeup or feel some type of way about not wearing makeup, i think it says more about you as a person then just what "society" tells you. I think a lot of you cunts don't give a shit about women being able to do whatever the fuck they want, you just want to feel better than them because you apparently don't live your life to please scrotes when it seems like you live your life to not be like other girls. It's nobodies fault that so many people are obessed with conformity and normality, look at the people who are sickened by the idea of people wearing lolita upthread, that's the same mentality that makes people insecure about doing shit that everyone else does. Who cares?

If makeup isn't a result of socialization, then are women just biologically wired to wear makeup? Because there's a very obvious gendered divide when it comes to which sex buys and wears makeup and which doesn't, and that's something that some women feel should be questioned and explored further. Criticism of makeup (or any other broad social trend) isn't a personal attack on you or any random individual woman who wears makeup; there are multiple women ITT who wear makeup but they still acknowledge that social pressures around it exist.

They probably wouldn't even get you flowers. I remember a few months ago there was a semi-viral conversation on Twitter about scrotes buying flowers for their girlfriends. Most scrotes on there said they didn't see the point and won't be buying them. Some people posted pictures of flowers they found in the grocery store for $6 and the scrotes said that's too expensive and asked why women feel entitled to that.

The average girl who claims to use makeup as an artistic outlet or self expression does shit like this every goddamn day.
This is the anticonsoom thread and you can't argue how about makeup companies pump out the same shit over and over, like palettes with only a slight hue difference, to collect money from telling women they're ugly. Why it's never aimed and advertised for men? Why I don't see "artistic" shit everytime I go out?
Aside from being a feminist problem, it's consoomeristic as fuck. "Hey, nona!! Buy this Winter Collection with muted tones, then the summer collection with neon colors and then Holiday collections with sparkly textures!!!"
People like Jeffree Star, Nikkie, James Charles and other wastes of human breath live off for that. Buy their shit. If you fail to see the consoom, I advise you to remove all of that mascara.

since the early 2010's, the makeup industry is run by trannies and gay men who dress up as women, that's why is like that.

Mnogo true, I noticed Western makeup covers a woman’s face instead of enhancing, whilst making it look angular and unnatural. Also, why do I see women in the west trying to look orange instead of enjoying pale skin? Or bleaching their hair to leave dark roots that looks tacky, instead of getting subtle highlights?
Korean makeup styles at least seems light, accentuating femininity and looking more modest and tasteful. And their fashion is better too, more feminine and subtle, even the hair styles are cute and natural looking.

When I see a woman with clothes that accentuate her gentleness, her feminine figure, without showing too much, it’s like seeing art. Feminine women make me feel protective and gentle, and I think a lot of women who wear heavy makeup and strange clothes are going for femininity, but the wrong way. Plus, pale girls rarely look good with a heavy tan. Tan girls can look weird with lightened skin. I think it usually looks off when someone tries to look like something they’re not.

A woman has every right not to be feminine, I mean I feel more comfortable in baggy and muted clothes, but I just really appreciate a feminine woman. Sage for gay tradthot autism.

So why are western luxury brands and mid-tier Sephora brands extremely popular in Asia? The market is enormous, you can find quality makeup no matter what look you're going for. Be it shiny koreaboo or drag queen or something in between. Not to mention that Europe has strict standards on what goes into makeup and what can be safely sold. There's shitty brands everywhere. If you can understand that Tony Moly and Etude House aren't representative of the entire Korean market, I'm sure you can understand how western makeup brands are diverse.

>why the fuck do you spend money on jpegs nonnie

Short answer: I enjoy it. Shiny sparkly make brain go ooga booga.
Long answer:
I come from a war torn ex-commie country, grew up poor and was taught that I don't need anything in life aside the bare necessities. Now that I have money and increased my quality of life significantly, it gives me immense satisfaction to buy something that's purely for my own entertainment. I also often get fancier stuff for my mom that she couldn't get for herself. Oh yeah and I get an extra kick out of gambling because I studied probability in uni and did a work on how to manipulate people in casinos with math, so it's a twisted satisfaction, think of that episode of Brooklyn 99 with Holt playing poker.

I really like anime figures but I think they only look good when they are displayed nicely and aren't super cluttered like pic related. There's literally figures behind figures in this pic, like what even is the point. And this is only a fraction of this person's collection by the way.

I don't mean to offend you or anyone who buys manga, but I never understood collecting so many volumes of manga. I find that with how fast I can read each volume the cost per hour of entertainment is too high. I definitely get buying a few series you really enjoy and will likely re-read, but I don't get people who constantly buy whole series they're not even sure they'll like.

I've seen a bunch of comment about properly displaying a figure, mind to share an example?

I would definitely not buy manga now compared to how cheap it was ten years ago. My collection was really big because I bought a lot when Borders went bankrupt and I would find a lot of manga for $1-2 at a local used book store. It’s kind of wild comparing the sales from 2017-18 to 21-22 because of how much people are paying now. I wish I could understand why they would even want to spend $75 on a volume of manga - the $3 and $10 books are old sales from the same series.

Not a fan of the shelves (nor the LOVE letters on top eeessshhh…) but I like the way the figures are displayed here.

These posters reminds of that one rich banker from Switzerland who's a disgusting otaku and has a huge house full of this shit and worse. I can't remember his name at all though.

congratulations for being allowed to waste your money on useless shit that isn't even physical? Gambling and virtual cards kek, and you think this is winning?
I understand buying a few physical things and enjoying them, but you're gambling and twisting it that you're a math genius so can "manipulate the casinos" like they don't have safeguarding for exactly that kek
Anyway nice LARP, you're retarded. As other anons said, you're no better than a scrote with their little nfts. The poverty porn story doesn't matter in this context.

I don't get the comment section, these women are from nations with massive wealth disparities, what little they give to charity for social clout is peanuts to the amount of wealth they actually possess
I don't get how them buying expensive bags made in Europe(that they will ever wear once) for basically societal clout is somehow more progressive then some western millionaire buying multiple porches

Straight women are brainwashed into being as woke as possible, this includes shitting on themselves as long men can feel good about being woman-hating fucks. They literally skinwalk us and say they're better than us. Like drag queens, be an ally, wear rainbows, that's what they're saying to them so they cannot see their hatred towards them and if you do you're "homophobic and transphobic waaaa"

Lmfao, I love the posts in these threads where anons are obviously seething they can't afford to waste their money on 50 bags or a gajillion clothes. Absolutely agreed on the waste of expiring products though.

When Nietzsche stated that "God is dead and we have killed him" he wasn't saying it triumph, he was echoing what had already been figured out at that point, that the enlightenment basically killed any possibility of God existing

Nietzsche knew that once people didn't believe in religion anymore they would sink into hedonism/consumerism to cope with a lack of defined ideal. People react more to desire rather than reason (he also gave his vision of a modern man learning and creating art for the sake of it for a new morale baseline).
Without religion the west sunk into ideas about radical ideologies, Nationalism, Communism and Monarchism
during WW2 and the Cold war America destroyed these ideals and established the neo-liberal world order

This is why we are the way we are right now, the global system established in the past half century is meant to produce defective human beings who can only consume

The ones where anons react disproportionately angry at a room being pinterest inspired or having a lot of items, it's just some random spoiled teenagers room, part of lolcow's humor is being over the top with insults but a lot of times poster's attempts to be sassy fall flat.

Before the 1800s very few people were able to consoom. They were too busy being farmers. It was only the very rich who could afford that, and boy did they consoom, despite being religious.
