sounds like classic projection, which is a common defense mechanism
I don't see how it is projecting, what exactly am I projecting? Like, I realize it is in me and I accept it but for someone else I have a lot of hate to give when they have the same personality or traits that I do. What am I defending against? I'm sorry if I sound stupid.
For example, I unnaturally have a lot of hate for people who are selfpitying, while I am selfpitying myself.
No, the table I posted doesn't cover all of them. On Wikipedia they list the following ones considered as mature defense mechanisms:
>Level 4: mature
These are commonly found among emotionally healthy adults and are considered mature, even though many have their origins in an immature stage of development. They are conscious processes, adapted through the years in order to optimise success in human society and relationships. The use of these defences enhances pleasure and feelings of control. These defences help to integrate conflicting emotions and thoughts, whilst still remaining effective. >Those who use these mechanisms are usually considered virtuous. Mature defences include:
>Altruism: Constructive service to others that brings pleasure and personal satisfaction>Anticipation: Realistic planning for future discomfort>Humour: Overt expression of ideas and feelings (especially those that are unpleasant to focus on or too terrible to talk about directly) that gives pleasure to others. The thoughts retain a portion of their innate distress, but they are "skirted around" by witticism, for example, self-deprecation.>Sublimation: Transformation of unhelpful emotions or instincts into healthy actions, behaviours, or emotions; for example, playing a heavy contact sport such as football or rugby can transform aggression into a game>Suppression: The conscious decision to delay paying attention to a thought, emotion, or need in order to cope with the present reality; making it possible later to access uncomfortable or distressing emotions whilst accepting them>>1097137
Sorry I misunderstood you. Yes, since you're conscious of it, it cannot be projection, I guess it's just…plain old dislike/hate then? But tbh the fact that seeing that undesired quality in someone else conjures up such strong emotions, it suggests to me that you haven't fully accepted it within yourself? Because if you did, it would't bother you as much I think, and you could also feel empathy for that person. I guess the healthy thing to do would be to just work on it to overcome it
>>1097144>and you could also feel empathy for that person.
This is a good point anon, it feels more that I don't even try to understand the other person. Just directly onto hate. You may be right it's probably I've not accepted it in myself which is why I hate when I'm… confronted with it?
Also thank you for the other part of your post, very interesting.>>1097143
I'm not good at all with introspecting. But I think it is the selfpitying in this case that I hate, and how someone expresses it. I keep it all in, and if someone vocalizes their selfpitying, even if their thoughts are exactly the same as mine, it makes me hate them. This is actually a pattern with other things as well. Kind of makes sense with the confronting my own bad traits. Very fascinating… much to think about. Thank you a lot.

Why do men get so butthurt when a woman has a type in men that deviates from what they think women should want? I've seen so many men get mad when a woman has a preference they don't approve of, like liking pretty boys or not liking roided out physiques for instance. When a woman says something like that men just have to chime in with how said woman is wrong and how all women ackshually like muscular chads and any woman who says otherwise is a liar or some stupid shit like "you'll grow out of it". Why are men like this? I've never seen women throwing a fit like this over men's preferences like this, yet it's common for men to try to gatekeep what women are attracted to.
Men live lives of fantasy and believe there’s a way to be effortlessly irresistible to everyone. “Chad” represents the delusion that there is a female kryptonite and the only thing preventing them from fucking a bucket of women is lack of muscles. It also reinforces their evopsyche bullshit and aids their victim
complexes. If women like a variety of things, then his actual personhood becomes the reason his dreams are dreams. Likewise, women specifically not reacting to the male power fantasy suggests the rest of their alpha cope is wrong. This also works inversely, where a lot of men already believe women secretly want them, so they work to convince themselves everyone who isn’t interested is just a suspiciously large group of endless minority outliers.
Would it be a stupid idea to try and buy an apartment after I move out instead of renting? I do live in one of the most expensive cities in the world, but I was looking at housing for fun and there does exist a small number of apartments within a doable price range for me (150k-200k). Some of them, with the mortage and maintenance fees combined, end up being around the cost of rent in my city, if not cheaper. I barely have enough for a down payment so it's not feasible right now, plus they were scarce and only a few in decent neighborhoods, but in the future, why not? Do any nonas own homes? What fees can I expect to pay on top of maintenance and mortgage?
I found a 1br for 150k in the heart of my city, good square footage, not run down as fuck, within walking distance to where I work and it would've been so doable for me but… there's like no supermarkets in the area or they're all crazy expensive since it's smack in the middle so kek fuck.

How can I decorate muffins/cupcakes without frosting and icing? I want to make muffins but I also want them to look nice. Thought of maybe sprinkling sprinkle chocolate pieces on them, or almond flakes/coconut flakes? They will have pieces of strawberries inside, and they will be similar to strawberry cheesecakes taste-wise. I don't want to buy a pipe for frostings.
I want to make them look nice because they are going to be a birthday gift around a lot of people! Picrel is random.
I picked it up a few months ago and I think it can be, but it's possible to learn! Always keep your knees bent and buy elbow/knee/wrist pads and a helmet to prevent serious injury/allow you to skate while feeling at least a little more protected. I learned as a kid so it might be my muscle memory kicking in after 20+ years, but I don't think learning basic striding is very hard. I still have trouble stopping though. Lots of resources on the internet/youtube, skatefresh asha has many popular tutorials! My only word is advice is to make sure your ankles don't bend inward, it's tempting because it makes you feel safer but it's bad for you in the long run.
I hope you'll pick up inline skating nonna! I still suck at it but I can't fully express how much joy it brings me to just skate in circles at my local park.

You know this is something I've noticed with scrotes. I almost never use my friends' names as well unless I need to get their attention, but I have found quite a few guys will throw your name into a conversation particularly when they're talking down to you/mansplaining. >Anon, you should know better than that.>Don't you think that's a bad way of looking at it, anon? >That's not true anon, you should look into the topic more.
fucking obnoxious and literally out of the hundreds of people I've known it's always only been men awkwardly shoehorning my name into the conversation as if they're trying to explain something to a child. They always get flustered when I stop interacting with them afterwards, god forbid their fake appeal to authority doesn't pan out. You also get it with grimy salespeople, they know you for 2 minutes and are suddenly throwing your name into the conversation 5 times per sentence so you really feel they care and appreciate you kek.
I'm not a writer but I assume names are used more frequently for emphasis and clarity>>1098037

Obviously Im not a scientist but this seems so strange to me. How could the recommended daily intake of sugar(or anything really) for a full grown woman be more comparable to a child than the recommended amt for a full grown man? Maybe it does make sense and Im just rejecting it because I want to eat more sugar lol
yes it’s caloric intake. meaning do not exceed more than 100 calories worth of sugar for women (6tsp) and 150 calories for men (9tsp).
this graphic must be outdated because the heart.org website doesn’t even have guidelines for children so they’re clearly not tacking them on with the women’s guidelines anymore. i wonder why they did it initially and why they subsequently changed it?

i took a women’s/gender studies class last semester and in one of my essays i wrote that trans women aren’t women and therefore haven’t contributed at all to feminism, but she told me that’s actually not true. anyone know what tf she was talking about? i think about this pretty often.
your sister is a pedo and her boy is an incel
sounds like they deserve each other tbh
the brain doesn't finish developing until 25
she's dating a child, don't defend that shit
I don't think your sister is a pedo though she is dating a manchild. Since she's into 'manly' men, it sounds like maybe she's subscribed to more traditional beliefs of what the masculine ideal is, which is often synonymous with toxic
traits. Not surprising though, if she wants to be a tradwife. I don't think there's really much you can do to help her since she's gotta learn herself how that shit actually isn't attractive… or maybe she's happy in her current relationship even if he's awful. Would love to hear more stories about them though, they sound kind of entertaining.

Agree. When I learned Bo Burnham was dating a woman like 12 years his senior it freaked me out. Imagine dating a 23 year old scrote as a 35 year old woman. I’m in my late 20s and the thought of dating a 23 year old makes me want to vomit. I don’t think all age gap relationships are necessarily abusive
or anything but sometimes it’s just pathetic.

thank you so so so much!!!
Here's how I fixed myself
(I was into really fucked up kinks) cause I had my own issues) and even when I tried quitting porn, It never worked long term
but I fixed myself by replacing my urges with Vanilla Porn
I'd go from periods of not watching porn at all(3 days) then mastrubate to my pre-downloaded vanilla porn once a day for 5 days total, then I'd stop watching for 9 days and repeated the same schedule with 5 days, even when I'd fail, I would still always use the vanilla porn
eventually 9 goes to 12, then to 15, to 20, then to 30, then 40 and finally after 45 I was finally recovered
you can read erotica if it's your thing. or just use your imagination, that's what I did and it worked from the beginning (I was never addicted
to porn tho) but I still have trouble picturing realistic non-porny scenarios.. having sex irl and thinking about that probably works too idk I wouldn't know)
I think you can read them online. The physical ones are cringe imo.>>1099562

Guys, it's just very old Coca Cola marketing that was so effective it became an old wives tale.

I really believe myself that the stuff that they post is all fake or 3D generated as theres some really 'real' 3D models that exist. I really want to believe that real CP is a lot harder to find. I'm so sorry you had to deal with that, it's so sad either way

in my experience poly folxxx are either
-teenagers/very young adults who have no idea what love/a relationship is like so they assume every close online friends that they talk to on discord until 3 am on school nights is their queerplatonic datemate so they date their entire online clique
-extremely ugly people who somehow convinced people they were hot (usually by being into degen kinks) and because they know that they are ugly as sin they accept everyone into their weird poly relationship because who knows when they might find another person who wants to touch them without a hazmat suit on
kek thank you for the replies nonas. When I was young and impressionable was when polyam first started to kick up on tumblr and I did wonder about the whole "humans have always been polyam!!!" rhetoric, but opted to just believe than I am just a monogamous person instead of buying into flashy new trends (like I usually did).
One of my old college acquaintances announced she was in a poly relationship and I wasn't surprised to see that it composed of her and another girl (sorry, but pretty medicore) plus a neckbeard. I guess they broke up since she deleted all evidence of it kek.

Any other good sites anons?
In my old neighborhood this happened a lot, people would go to the door handles and yank them to see who left them unlocked and shuffle through but not break or steal anything half the time.
Sometimes they're looking for important documents though to commit fraud instead of valuables. I dont know why but I guess locking your door isnt very common in my neighborhood despite crime.
They do this with peoples houses too, look for the unlocked and then leave without a trace.
I went to this site but it only showed me a "funny" page.
Or maybe this page has a different spelling? I checked on google and saw torrent sites with similar names, but i'm not sure if i should click on them.

Are there any woodfags here? I’m gonna build a keyboard tray for my desk and am wondering what the minimum thickness I can get away with is. It’s currently a drawer like picrel but having the drawer there makes the desktop too high for my arms to comfortably work all day. I took it out and replaced the drawer with an inch-thick piece of plywood and it works awesome. Only issue is that there’s just a little bit less hand space in there than I want, so thinner wood would be better for a real tray. Don’t want to break something if I’m using the tray extended, though.

But he’s afraid of windshield wipers, tennis rackets, random sticks, pans, plates, water gallons and selfie sticks.

Powerful question with powerful post number. I think ugly is not a face shape, but a place in society. The idea of objective beauty is a meme sold by plastic surgeons and Cosmetics companies. But subjective beauty can be almost perfectly overlaid with social caste judgements. Beauty is a shorthand for health, wealth and social power. That's why rich beautiful people get unnecessary surgeries just to prove they can afford to look like an alien (see: Hadids). >how do I know I'm ugly
You don't know, you decide. Faces actually have very little to do with it. Good health, grooming, hair, clothes, posture, and attitude will make 99% of people think you're attractive, and the other 1% are trying to sell you something.
, please stop smoking. ive known people who have been able to go back to it, but its not worth developing actual psychosis or something. i know its hard, i just had to quit because it was making me lazy and more depressed, but after a week you start to feel better without it.
I usually smoke equivalent of 1 joint, because I use a vape it's easy to have a bit too much. Maybe 1 in 5 times I smoke, this happens. This time I thought I hadn't pulled anything in the first inhale so I had another, so twice as much as usual, so it was more intense.
I was on the couch and felt like I was lucid dreaming, I could make my body float on clouds, turn myself into a cartoon or see through multiple universes where I was living different lives. My boyfriend was with me and I said ask me anything, he asked me my name, I hesitated and said that's a a trick question. Which worries me because I genuinely couldn't access that information, I didn't realize I was that far gone. I was still functional though, could get up and get myself something from the kitchen etc, so not like I felt paralyzed or anything.
It was perfectly pleasant to be honest, and it's happened often enough that I'm not confused or scared by it. But I know it's a slippery slope because I'm a very anxious person and this is the only way to truly take a holiday from my internal monologue. I used to smoke once in a blue moon but now it's every day, so my tolerance is building and I get these hallucination spells more often as I try to find the right dose to feel high. I tell myself it's just weed and that I never got a rebellious teen phase so why not enjoy this in the safety of my home, but idk, I don't want to drive myself crazy.
I don't use prefilled carts I use Rick Simpson Oil in a reusable vape. I've shared it with a few people and they never have adverse effects like I do. I think I'll switch to edibles for now because it's easier to control the dose, and try cut back to only getting high on weekends so I don't build a tolerance…
I hate that this experience has made me curious about other hallucinogens, I hate drug culture in general and my worst fear is trying something hard on a whim and becoming a real junkie. There is so much addiction in my family it feels like a foregone conclusion sometimes.

I feel like my life is meaningless if I don't achieve something big in science. Is there a name for that kind of complex?
I was school-acquaintances with one in high school. ie, we were in a drafting class together but the teacher was incompetent so we spent a lot of the time just playing multiplayer video games. He thought he was super clever though really he was mediocre at best, always asking me for help on our work. He knew I was religious and would frequently ask me questions about my beliefs, then would make a smug smirk hearing my answer.
We were also in a mythology class together—it was well known as the best class at the school and focused on classical and Norse mythology. At the beginning of the class we all had to sign (along with our parents) a disclosure document essentially saying we understand that religion and religious texts will be frequently discussed and read in the class. Anyway, later in the year we get to Norse mythology, and by the time Norse myths were written down they contained themes from Christianity. For instance, Odin’s favorite son Baldr was killed unjustly, but they take comfort in the fact that he will come back to life and return at the end of the world to rule over it peacefully. So naturally as we read all this stuff we’re not just looking at the Edda but bits from the Bible too. This dude comes up to me in our other class and tells me how furious he is that we’re looking at the Bible in class, how he’s gonna tell his parents and get the teacher fired, etc. I had to remind him that he was essentially in a religion class and that if he’d read the disclosure doc he’d know that it very clearly said, “AT TIMES THE BIBLE AND OTHER RELIGIOUS TEXTS WILL BE REFERENCED IN THIS CLASS. DON’T TAKE THE CLASS IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH THAT.” He kind of mumbled his grievances but shut up after that.
Once in our drafting class he asked me if Jesus Christ is considered a myth. I told him that based on the definition we used in our mythology class (where essentially, myths are stories that are foundational to or based in human religion), yes. He did this big chortle and had a smug look on his face for the next ten minutes.
Towards the end of the year (this was senior year) I asked him where he’d applied to go to college. He said he didn’t apply to anywhere. This was well past submission deadlines; colleges had already sent out acceptance letters. I was a bit aghast at this and asked him what his plans were for after school. He said, “I dunno, I might go to [community college] or something.”
For maybe a year after graduating he’d occasionally send me emails asking questions about Minecraft mechanics or mods he couldn’t figure out. I’d answer them, and eventually those fizzled out too. No idea where he is now.

I hope you guys are ready for the stupidest question that may have ever been posted here (I get to it at the bottom) 2.7%
of whites in the bone marrow donor registry, despite being 63%
of population. By comparison3.9%
of native americans in the bone marrow donor registry despite being 2%
of the population1.1%
of native hawaiians in the bone marrow donor registry despite being 0.15%
of the population3.9%
of asians in the bone marrow donor registry despite being 5%
of the population1.6%
of blacks in the bone marrow donor registry despite being 12.3%
of the population
of hispanics in the bone marrow donor registry despite being 17%
of the population.
These numbers have increased
since 2012 and somehow there's still "not enough minority" marrow to go around so much so that they keep urging non-whites to donate to this day? It would make sense if european-americans where the LEAST likely to need a bone marrow transplant, but they actually are the most likely to need it.
What's more, 0.4%
of french people are registered, similar population size to that of black and hispanics in 2012, and yet
it is the country that has the HIGHEST successful bone marrow transplants. The narrative here is that blacks/hispanics and other minorities don't have as much people in the registry as white people hence the lower rate of finding matches. But, if having as much people in the registry as possible has an effect on how likely it is you find a donor as is implied, then how do the french manage to have such high rate of matches despite it? If it doesn't, then why is there a need for practically all minorities to be on the registry to be able to increase the likelihood they find a match?
This is without getting into the fact that 30% of people needing a bone marrow transplant will find a match through a relative. of the people needing unrelated marrow, I could not find a break down for each race or who needs it the most anywhere, only that 35%(1,900) of hispanics will need it. That is 0.2% of 860,000 donors. Most likely less now.
What am I missing here?

did you look into the science of how people have matching human leukocyte antigen (HLA) types or not by ethnicity? maybe for minority populations in the west, there is a wide variety of ethnicities in each major racial category so they have differing HLA types or something. I don't know much about this but good luck, hopefully you can find some good articles that aren't too bogged down in details.
oh i hadnt thought about that, maybe the tissues are more complex?
Yes, from the femcel bingo.
Also what does femcel even mean if it includes voluntary celibacy?
imo it's worth it, it is quite cheap. I've put over 400 hours on it at this point and I still have stuff to do. It's not like ACNH where you run out of things to do the moment you finish building your island and then you're left with basically nothing to do but run around. If you play on PC there's sooo many mods to make the game more immersive and cozy.
I pirated it to try it out and liked it so much I ended up buying it on different platforms kek
femcel honestly just means any women who has somewhat of a distaste for male behaviour regardless of how mild the detain is at this point. It used to be about women who were scorned by scrotes one time or they were the nerdy girl at school and can't get over it.>>1101116

Alright nonnies!!! What’s the real consensus on Turning Red? I wasn’t interested in watching it because I hate weebshit, but the controversy is interesting and I can’t find any real reviews that aren’t done by wokies or scrotes.
I don’t have a problem with a kids movie addressing discovering your sexuality, but it’s weird that she twerks and turns into a catgirl. I just know weeb pedo scrotes will love this movie.
You can post your hesitations about the movie, but please indicate whether or not you’ve actually seen it in your post!!

>>1101257>tfw I haven't seen any actual outrage just people talking about the outrage
I'm seeing people fawn over the actual fictional boyband which is hilarious to me.
That aside, I haven't seen it yet but I do like that this movie has that "outcast" girl type friend group even if it's stereotypical. I also like they they are showing the actual maxi pads and shit.
I think it’s cute, I couldn’t relate to mc because I have a different relationship with my family, but it was a silly movie.
The fact that they talk about periods was honestly nice, I can’t remember a single kid’s movie from my childhood that talks about them.
I also liked the main character and her friends, they are just normal kids doing dumb kid’s shit and being cringy, I seriously related to the girl with the pink overalls, I was as retarded and loud as her.
At first I thought the anime reactions would only happen a few times, and thought it was okay, but seeing them over and over again was awkward.
I feel like they really went for the nostalgia trip with the notebook doodles, I felt that because I’ve done that with friends and it was kind of cute to see something like that in a movie.
The art was okay, I’m not a big fan of the bean mouths but it could’ve been more cursed like in Luca.

does being a (good) artist make people want to be your friend?
AYRT (>>1101803) and oh nonnie
, I want to give you a hug. You don't have to have a skill they can brag about or gifts or social status(?) to make friends, if anything I'd reckon the friends you may make in this manner are shallow at best and will likely not stick around. Do you want/have any art friends? Making people laugh and validating them works, but it would be even better if you had a genuine common interest (like art) that you could talk and share about. Could you possibly make art friends by taking classes or joining hobby groups and meeting them online? It seems unlikely but I've made some new connections this way, not good friends persay but people I can have conversations with without awkwardness (and I'm usually retardedly awkward too) because we are passionate about the same subjects.

how did game development shift so heavily male ? from what I've researched during the early history of game development, women played a more proportionate role in the industry, it was only the Japanese Industry that was 99% male
In fact one could argue that women have influenced video games more than men. Jane Jensen, Roberta Williams, Kim Swift, Corrinne Yu, Carol Shaw, Jade Raymond, Amy Hennig, I mean Roberta Williams single handedly(with some help from her husband) revolutionized and created a new genre of gaming while she was a housewife
I wish I could give a better response nonnie
but I feel like it has something to do that most men"s first crushes are (usually over sexualized) women, then they get into making games, they start sexualizing women characters, women feel uncomfortable and feel unable to joine the gate-keeped community of moids, cycle continues.
Look at Nier or Bayonetta, they're designed to appeal to men.
I also would go to video game tournaments (ssbm) and a lot of the same men were in tech or game revs who would hit on me as a (known fact) I was 14/15. I hate to derail but I think many men in those fields just ward off women one way or another, the normal ones were always the creepiest 1:1.
Thank you nonny

How do you escape from assumptions people make about you?
I have attention problems and sometimes I have to be told something several times and this makes people think I'm profoundly stupid and sometimes they decide that I don't know anything and I have to be explained everything from the very basics.
Example: the accountant at my workplace assumed that I know nothing about taxes for some reason and went on a monologue about how taxes work. I didn't want to be rude and tell her I already know these things so I didn't interrupt her. But I wonder, should I have had?
Or another example is that because I don't talk about my dating life (it just feels…intrusive when people ask about it) people assume I must be lesbian and sometimes they allude to it in a mocking way (like they ask me if I ever go to a certain bar - which is known to be a gay bar - and things like that). It's just super annoying
>>1101477>what is the job
>how did you get it
Pure dumb luck. I went to school for International Relations, graduated and worked retail because fuck politics. Quit retail because fuck retail too and got a temp job as a receptionist at a news company through a recruiter. Tried to interview for a permanent open position they had at one of the departments but the head of that department didn't want to interview me. My contract ended, worked receptionist at another place, lady back at the news company said "hey X quit, do you want to interview for his position?" I knew almost everyone from every department since I was the receptionist, including my boss's predecessor, but I had never met my boss since he came in after I left. I came in for my interview, and landed the job. My boss told me after I got hired that he had gone around and asked about me… which is terrifying to hear, but thankfully everyone had nothing but good things to say! I consider myself very, very lucky. It can be hectic and I really dread it at times since I don't have the proper background for it, but 95% of the time I'm very happy here.
>how do you travel to it
I take the subway to work. The commute is thankfully super quick and easy from home.
Good luck nona! I hope you will be able to leave neetdom and have a fulfilling life. Even though my job is related to my field, it's not my passion, and that lack of passion helps me keep a healthy work-life balance. It's just a good enough job that suits my needs (good hours, good benefits, relatively laid back because my company is small) but doesn't take away from what makes living enjoyable to me (i.e. everything I do outside of work). Some people live to work, some people work to live. No shame in being one or the other, but I don't like sacrificing my life for work/money kek.

Why some women are so obsessed about male height? Looking at the discussion in the vent thread, 170 cm (5'7 I guess?) is completely normal so the ridicule is kinda bizarre. What the difference really does it make if a man is the same height as a woman or even a little shorter? I imagine it's a problem when there's, idk, 50cm difference but that would work both ways, for smaller and taller. Otherwise no idea what purpose tall men serve, looking like a stereotypical straight couple is not that cool or worth pursuing
I’m trying to write my report of yesterday so I can send it before Sunday and fighting the urge to play videogames and do this at night. You should drink some water for me and have some fruits, preferable and orange, oranges are so nice, I love them, eat an orange for me, nonnie
and maybe also do the laundry, change the sheets of your bed and take a really nice shower with some nicely scented shower gel, I’ve always wanted to try some green tea scented shower gel, I love green tea, it’s so nice and relaxing, or maybe some orange shower gel, I love those too, they’re energizing, pick something depending on what you need, nonnie
let women be attracted to what they want to. I only see men get butthurt when a woman is attracted to tall men.
Also males typically tend to have a long-torso,short-legs body type so they look really bad when they are short. Tall mens bodies look more proportionate.
dating a very tall or just 6ft+ man comes with the fact that he's going to use his height as a personality trait the same as how some short women have the uwu im so smal im baby dumb shit going on.
i know we love to shit on manlets on lc but i've actually had a much more enjoyable time dating short men who are just comfortable with the fact they're short. there isn't any napoleon complex nor big tall daddy dom complex going on, they're just chilling and you don't have to break your neck to kiss them.
i think one time she bought something from an etsy store that also sold terf
nta, I prefer men to be taller then me but with in reason
I'd like a guy to 2-4 inches taller, a 10+ inch size difference is uncomfortable asf
Feminism struggled with intersectionality in the past. It improved with the second wave but it wasn’t perfect, and even still there are racist people who otherwise fit into radfem ideology.
> 'I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.'
Audre Lorde was one critic of the second wave, and a womanist, which is a black led feminist movement. Womanism is even less well known. I would like to think that by now, intersectionality is well accepted as integral to the majority of radical feminists. However, you probably won’t be seeing real radical feminist discourse on lolcow or tumblr kek
They just see radical feminism as "feminist but they hate trannies and pornography" and just ignore all the parts that are contradictory to male /pol/tard shit. They feel subversive and "cool" calling themselves "radfems", even though they still obsess over being accepted/liked by men and don't subscribe to any of its tenets. "terfdavidicke"/"radfemhitler" is one of those types. I remember her followers sometimes came here to racebait and sperg out>>1102609
What's a "jebaiter"?
Posture is mainly about developing the muscles we didn't use so when slouching so it can feel uncomfortable developing them. My job is standing for hours so I really had to fix my posture because I noticed others would slouch and get stuck like that.
Something that helped me was running in a gym or beside a mirror in your house and actively fixing your posture when you notice you start to lean forward. (I say running because eventually people start to lean forward as they work their muscles)
Another trick is wearing overalls comfortable on the straps when standing straight, but when you slouch it will start to feel tight, forcing you to shoulders down + back
I don't do squats (weights) but I heard that helps, also stretching eases the pain but once you start reminding yourself it gets a lot easier
Also walking in high heels (even just around your house to practice the posture)

Ok, I'm downloading it now! I hope it's as good as I've heard, I don't know too much about the game but I think it will be fun and very relaxing. I love a game that can be played continuously.
Absolutely. I think you can learn to enjoy your own company and be happy with that, if not fill the loneliness with friends and people who love you, than to be with someone who belittles you and wears down your self worth. It’s a shitty internal intrusive thought, vs a physical version of that that you cannot
control. I get sad that I’m single sometimes and wish I wasn’t alone, but I can’t sacrifice my emotional and mental wellbeing to be with someone just to be with someone. Fish would be nicer company.
Are you suspected/diagnosed autistic? I was watching a dating show about autists once (love on the spectrum) and one girl in an episode was talking about how people often assume she has an accent when she doesn't, and the guy responded "oh yeah, that's just the autism accent"

My EX lol. I made the mistake of hitting on him and he did start to like me (pathetic yes I know). But he told me that he had never had a crush on anyone, never wanted to have sex, no sexual or romantic feelings before. I think he could've been autistic overall ngl but at some point he thought he was asexual. (Met in highschool). Even now we chat and he still says he doesn't like, lust or want anyone. He admitted to trying to hookup at a party because a girl kept hitting on him but he couldn't get into it or keep it up. He didn't find her attractive or anything at all. Even when we were dating he was not a big kisser (he said lips touching felt weird). His attachment style was avoidant(mines anxious) and he was an ISTP.
What an interesting dude, he seems like a bad partner though, I'm sorry. I have sexual feelings, or like don't hate sex but I guess I'd be completely fine with never dating or having sex. >>1103678

i suddenly really want a relationship. i have never been in a real one (only e-dating like ten years ago) but i just want to experience irl love for once. but i also don't feel confident "putting myself out there" (idk how and where and what and huh) because i'm very overweight (30 kilos too much to be precise) and my weight loss has stalled for the past six months because of a lot of irl stress. i also never had a relationship, kissed, held hands, had sex, naturally i never bothered getting any kind of BC either so i would have to find a gyno first too, but i'm also terrified of getting pregnant and from masturbation alone i can say that penetration is boring. i turn 30 in two months. should i even bother? love and sex is such an abstract concept for me at this point and the idea of ever being in a romantic, sexual relationship myself is like imagining myself turning into a bird or something. i just can't comprehend it.

Swedes, does any of you actually likes and eats this on a regular basis?
Most of them use dating apps I'm afraid… For me it was at work, but I work in male dominated industry. IRL speed dating events are still a thing (at least in my country) so you could look this up, it's definitely very straightforward about the intention; otherwise if you'd be willing, some kind of volunteering activity? Though there it will be most likely female-dominated like your office is, still, a chance to meet genuine, well meaning people.
Ultimately, as I think most of the people, I know some (specifically, two) marriages that started out as tinder dates so it's not impossible to get it through that route but I know I wouldn't want to try it myself, so I understand where you're coming from. Maybe if you warmed up to the idea some anons on dating apps thread in /g/ could help you with maybe how to come up with a description strong enough to discourage people looking for hookups?

When and how did that happen that any goblin-related thing is equaled to antisemitism now? Is it just american thing or have any other Euranons seen their said by other europeans? I keep seeing that a lot lately and I'm completely baffled, since goblins (and "goblin stealing child" myth) exist in pretty much every european folklore and has nothing to do with Jewish people or antisemitism. I think it was appropriated a bit later and used by some to actually spread anti-semitic messages but I don't think it became synonymous with antisemitism still? Do you think it's just a few genZ woketards thing or is this a legit stance people have on this nowadays?

>>1104276>I want to start making vector drawings/doodles. Like flat colors with lines. I heard procreate is a good tool.
I don't have a lot of experience with procreate but from what I got to try out thanks to my friends who own ipads I think it would be a huge waste of money to buy one (or apple pencil) just for that app. If you haven't tried Illustrator in the last 3 years or so, you really should give it another shot! It became so much more intuitive and easy to use, better with every new version coming out. I wouldn't switch to any other program. And considering how much of a ripoff Adobe is, pirating it is a morally good choice too, so not only you're gonna save a whole lot of money you'd spend on ipad/apple pencil, but also you'll get a better and more versatile.
When it comes to alternatives I've heard very good things about Affinity Designer too but can't say much myself since I haven't tried it yet. But it seems like it's just as good as Illustrator and mostly chosen by people just to steer away from Adobe & because it's license is incomparably cheaper. Overall, good luck!

I don’t deal with it. My stomach drops and my skin prickles. I hide the thread image. I report it a dozen times. I spam cute pictures and then I log off and go for a long walk in the fresh air, go spend time with friends and family, anything to get away from it.
The weird thing is I don’t feel the same when i see gore. I’m somewhat fascinated by gore and will stare at it, as well as report it. When i see CP it makes me feel like im a sicko as well, like why am I using this site in the first place? It feels like I’ve abused the child myself. Idk it’s meant to cause us fear and distress and it works. Congratulations scrotes who post here, you’ve achieved your goal of upsetting women by posting child abuse images. I hope they find you and lock you up.
File: 1647780357066.jpg (12.4 KB, 320x180, mqdefault.jpg)
I have missed them every time thankfully, but I fear my pc has some of it hidden in temp files somewhere. Makes me feel sick & also fear it could have some legal repercussions for technically having CP in my puter
Your computer only creates files if you actually interact with the image (save/download it, upload it, etc).
t. saved the Hunter Biden laptop files to my computer to analyse them for photoshop, got visited by the police for it
I feel my stomach drop, I hide the picture and mass report it, I also try to find a way to delete it but nothing has worked so far, focusing on trying to delete the picture helps me forget about it. I’ve tried typing the number of the post as the password and typing different possible passwords, nothing has worked but I’m trying to help I guess.
I also just look for another thread or focus on some different app or just anything else that keeps me busy mentally and visually, sometimes I try to start an infight, post some annoying unpopular opinion or say that Shayna is fucking disgusting or that I hope trannies 41%.
Last time I created a random account to type baits on Reddit and see if they fall for them but since I never log in it’s impossible to get some updoots.
I also like to go on Pinterest and report gendercult posts.
And honestly, gore also makes me feel disgusted, but it’s somehow not that shocking? I try to pretend that the CP pictures are fake, and that the girls got saved and the pedos got murdered. I just want all pedos to die after getting stabbed in the eyes with a rusty, illness ridden needle.
i use the ublock addon on firefox. it's an ad blocker and comes with a setting to block all media over a certain size. i set it at everything over 0 KB.
some browsers let you block images directly in their settings.
That’s pretty scary, anon. I think I saw one of the questionable images posted on Twitter from some random account posting about the Hunter Biden laptop and it’s really stuck in my head. I was hoping it was fake but I don’t know. Any tiny piece of CP gets stuck in my head in a loop and I hate it. Especially as a victim of CSA who knows there’s CP of me out there somewhere, I’m always terrified it’s going to be a picture of me and even typing this out is making me ill
What was the police visit like, if you don’t mind me asking? Did they just ask questions?
I’m so sorry to hear that, anon. Child abusers and people that make/share CP should all be tortured to death.
It was actually terrifying, ngl. Three officers turned up to my house to ascertain who had uploaded the two illegal images and enact an arrest. I only got away with it because a) what sort of child abuser uploads illegal material to a website checking for photoshop, and b) I fully cooperated with the investigation and proved that I (obviously) had no other illegal material hanging around. They told me I was very lucky though, as they didn’t usually care for asking questions prior to making an arrest for that type of offence. Still took 4 months between the report being made by the site and the police coming to my house, though…
Get busy, start hanging out with other people (preferably non-toxic

Won’t lie, I’m curious too. >>1104846
I agree with >>1104939
, men accuse women of the manipulative tricks they themselves use because they are unable to empathize and simultaneously terrified of their shortcomings, so they project their own feelings and emotions and methodologies onto women. They can’t understand anything outside of themselves, so all they can do is try to knock women down a peg by trying to make us look equally unstable. Men are highly manipulative, especially because they think women can’t get anything of their own merit, that anything good they gain must be via manipulation, another projection. Men have to manipulate and connive to get what they want, and they hate that about themselves, and they read into a women’s actions deeply because they want her to display those same negative traits so they feel don’t feel inferior.
On that note, “withholding sex” is a test all women should run if they insist on being with a scrote. Deny him sex for a week or two. Make up a reason about not feeling well or wanting to work some relationship problem out first. They will either chimp out and start abusing you and begging/coercing you or watch a bunch of prom, be passive aggressive and maybe dump you. A lot of women won’t do this under the guise of withholding sex being “abusive
” or “mean” but really deep down they know that it’s true that moids only pretend to care about them for sex.
yes, totally. i've only ever been manipulated by one woman in my life (my narcissist mom) but i cannot even count the amount of times i've been guilt tripped, coerced and persuaded, blackmailed or just overall made to feel like shit at the hands of males, whether that be previous boyfriends, male relatives, male "friends" or just male co-workers who talk down to me.
There's a reason they pin women as the only "emotional manipulators" and it's to shift the blame away from them and on to us. Historically women are viewed as snakes, two-faced, jezebels and temptresses or just people who lead a "good" man astray, yet if you look at any of those situations objectively you'll see that most of the time it's just the feeble, weak-minded male choosing infidelity, choosing to betray his friends etc. Males have always had much, much more choice than us and they know this, so they shift the responsibility in order to make us seem like the evil hags at fault.
I echo what another nona said about the consequences of 'withholding' sex from a male. It really is the true test that separates the good men from the terrible ones. Men's nature is inherently manipulative based on how they're brought up and how they come to view women: to most of them, we're just a receptacle to fuck, and they'll keep us around when we're convenient, whether that be for sex, cleaning or attention and feeding their egos. I think the madonna-whore complex is a super fitting example of how a lot of men see us.

I don’t think it’s gay but more like bi-curious. Gay would be wanting to be in a relationship with a woman -because she’s a woman- and also wanting to have sex with her -because she’s a woman-.
But not in the “oh man, I’m sure so queer and cool now” way but in the “wow I really love, appreciate and find women really sexy, I can’t wait to date a pretty woman who will love and respect me as much as I love and respect her forever” kind of way.
It's different because men aren't depicted as objects of sexual desire everywhere, all the time. Plus, dudes do gayer shit all the time being straight.>>1105075
Kek, more straight than the anon in the other thread insisting she's totez straight.
I'm ESL so I'm not sure I used the right words for it. It's more that I don't see myself initiating anything with anyone in general
but if the opportunity ever presented itself very unlikely
I'd do it.
It must be difficult to know what your true sexuality is if you're not allowed to have a sexuality and certainly not be bi or lesbian.
The male gaze everywhere fucks us up mentally too.
Ntayrt, but I have a question about this. I've heard straight women talk about how gross penises are and I've heard some straight women talk about how blowjobs are gross and how they won't ever give their boyfriend/husband blowjobs. My question is why are straight women able to dislike giving blowjobs but if a woman says she doesn't want to perform oral sex on another woman it means she's straight? This is a genuine question and I'm not looking to start an infight, I really would like insight on this.
I'll rephrase since I typed it out kind of clunky: Why can a straight woman dislike and refuse to give blowjobs without her sexuality called into question (generally speaking) but if a woman (who is questioning her sexuality or already knows she's bi or lesbian) dislikes and refuses to eat out other women, it is assumed she's straight? Again, genuine question because I don't understand. Also, I get that the ayrt phrased things in a way that does not imply actual desire, I'm not really talking about her I'm just speaking in general.

What it's like, dating a sociopath??
pretty much what >>1105594
said. All that charm on the surface leaves as soon as the two of you are alone. They never have an off switch, it feels like their entire personality is a LARP but they have nothing beneath the surface. No real personality, or depth to them.
Should pass with time, and if it doesn't then you should maybe see a therapist?
t. another artist that (sometimes) goes to the gym
It's a long, long process. Maybe seeing a therapist is worth it, but I've been regularly doing light workouts for about 2 years now. I started just doing stretches before moving onto yoga/power yoga, to doing bodyweight workouts and playing Ring Fit Adventure. It's a constantly push and pull between "I'm just doing this for the sake of myself" and "I need to make my body look better" and struggling to not scream at myself when I opt to do an easier workout like yoga over a more intense bodyweight/RFA one. It's easier for me to power through my thoughts now than it was before, but they are still there (and I'm currently struggling a bit now).
I think what helps is building a routine. I would dedicate time everyday to stretch, to the point where my mornings felt off if I didn't stretch. It was the equivalent of having a cup of coffee in the morning or something, just had to do it. It no longer became about becoming more flexible or whatever, just about doing it. Then I already had time set aside every morning and eased my way into working out, slowly upping the intensity. I'm currently taking a break from RFA/bodyweight to focus on yoga and core building exercises because I struggle with low back pain. My mind is currently between "you're not doing enough, you're a slacker" and "I have to do this or else I will be in crippling pain, I can't power through workouts because it will just make everything worse." I also opt for at home workouts because I don't like having to set aside time to get to/from the gym when I can just work out at home. Before doing RFA I would also follow workouts on youtube.
That's just my two cents and what has worked for me. I've struggled with my body image for years and will probably continue to for years to come. But I've definitely come a long way from when I first started. I think there's a very delicate balance between being kind to yourself but also having self discipline.

Is a whole wheel of cheese a weird/risky graduation gift? One of my friends is finishing up her masters program, and she's having a graduation party soon. I was talking to her about this cheese I liked before and she said she wanted to try it, and said I'd bring some to her party, but should I just buy a whole wheel instead of precut slabs (which is how they normally sell them at my cheese shop)? Or would it be risky since she's never had it before? She likes brie, but this cheese isn't brie. It's similar but the milk undergoes ultrafiltration so it's a much more milder taste than brie. Or should I just buy multiple different types of cheeses to bring to her? But since I said I'd bring it anyway, should I just get a gift separate from the cheese…? Now I'm overthinking it kek

I really really hope this doesn't sound like a humblebrag but I have to ask somewhere. Should I ask my boyfriend for money with the following in mind? and how do I get over the fear?
Ok basically he seems to want me to ask him for money? to the point i'm starting to become paranoid that if I don't do it soon he'll leave me or something. But idk i've never been given money and have been taught to get things for myself and idk i just don't feel comfortable asking for money and I just don't want his money. If I needed it I would ask but at the moment I don't. Anyways, every time I tell him I need to ask him something or whatever he immediately goes "is it money?" and looks… amused? and then i swear he looks disappointed when I say no. He also loves flaunting his money. And he'll send me memes were the wife is like using her husband as an atm. wtf? I'm almost scared this isn't him just wanting to be a provider and instead it's a fetish! seriously idk what to do or how to bring it up or if i should just finally ask for money and see how he reacts.

Real question, not clickbait. What
do you actually like about men?
Besides being physically attracted to them, what about moid behavior makes it worth sticking around them?
I think I can handle being friendly with moids in small doses (I unfortunately share some of my interest in very male dominated activities) Some of favorite characters happen to be moids. But I don't think I could be around them 24/7 or live with one. They almost always have some gross aspect to them, whether it's watching fucked up porn/fetish shit and not having a problem with it, terrible political ideas, or hygiene issues.

Wow thanks nonny
! Here is my first template
Is camwhoring while you are in a relationship and the partner doesn't know about it, cheating?
Like, if my friend does stuff like that while having a boyfriend and he doesn't know about it, is it cheating? She of course doesn't do it all the time and it's not even a career, and she is really trying to quit plus her actual studies and work is going fine… it's like an impulsion that gets the best of her sometimes, when she is feeling particularly unhinged. She isn't like, getting off to it all, it is just slipping back into old habits from when she was a young teen, and only rarely, when her mental health is nosediving and she doesn't let it go too far. Is it cheating? She loves her partner a lot and would never actually cheat on him, the act doesn't bring her sexual gratification. What if your partner was doing this behind your back and you found out?
before my current partner of about 4 years i really think i only pursued men because of comphet/easy validation. i'm bi but much prefer women, like, literally 99.9% prefer women and i think my (sigh, using this term for the first time so bare with me) nigel is that 0.1% that keeps me from identifying as a lesbian because I've literally sat here for like five minutes trying to think of what makes men redeemable/interesting/attractive and the only traits i thought of are either exceptions that most men don't exhibit or things that women/lesbians do way better.
I guess their physical strength/bigger frames can be nice at times, but then again, I'd rather be with a tall broad-shouldered woman than tolerate the shit most moids put women through. >>1106588
ngl anon this kinda sounds like its something you're doing and passing off as your friend instead to avoid criticism. no judgment here, it just gives off that energy.
as someone who has done similar borderline things in a relationship before - yes i consider it cheating. anything you're intentionally hiding from your partner is at least a gateway to cheating. it's lying at the very least if not cheating, and unfaithful even if it's a trauma response or for money/whatever else. if you're doing something questionable and your partner doesn't know about it/consent to it happening, it's cheating in my opinion.
maybe she should advise her friend to seek help instead of sexually degrading herself in front of men that throw a few coins at her>>1106927
getting money off moids for sexually degrading yourself in front of them is not based
Sure anon. If you think camwhoring is anything like being a prostitute then youre retarded. Its not a big deal kek
If someone can make money off pictures then good for them. Its funny to see how desperate moids are anyway
I was under the impression that the general consensus of the site is to not give moids what they want.
Masturbation is normal anon. If you can get money for it then who cares? I dont get why anons think all sex work are the same kek
Camwhoring is nothing compared to being a sugar baby or a prostitute on the street. If i met a guy who had an OF i wouldnt care but id just think hes gay
Youre acting as if women cant make decisions on their own kek. Anyone who doesnt agree with you isnt a camwhore. I just think its lame to judge women for what they do.>>1106934
Maybe just stop caring about moids? Moids love whores and women who hate whores. Moids will literally get turned by a woman breathing.
It can jeopardize your future. Women are still held to high regards in society in most aspects. Also, depending on the extent it can be as degrading as prostitution, not as dangerous but camwhoring can range from getting stripped in your lingerie to showing your asshole on camera. Which vary in degradation and repercussions. I also don't get the initial anon asking that. It sounded like she was asking it for herself. As a good friend she should have been worried her friend's mental health is so bad she ends up camwhoring not if we consider she's cheating.>>1106935
masturbation is normal by yourself, not when broadcasted to hundreds of strangers
Im aware and thats why i believe women shouldnt be shamed for sex work. I just think shes a grown woman and if this what she wants then we cant do anything about it.
My point is if you tell a friend to not do something then theyll still do it. Then again we have no idea about the person. I just think its weird to meddle into peoples relationships.
It's about the commodification and the continued objectification of all
women's bodies. Sex work is not okay.
Lolcow isnt a place for feminism kek online libfem and radfem are useless.
Shes a grown woman who gets money for her body. Its not that deep anon. Reeing about SW is retarded. At the end of the day she made her choice
Ok, you got me. I was asking for myself… I didn't mean for this to devolve into an argument. I don't feel good doing it at all, I hate it. I think this anon understands >>1106661
how I feel. It is not about the money, it is because I used to do it as an underaged girl and I don't know why I still get the impulse to do it now, it's some compulsion. I need to probably just break up with him, maybe.
What do I have to do with it??? I'm on your
Making fun because it's lolcow, what a loser mentality. How about you talk to her because she's another person, if you want to make fun of someone go make fun of cows on the cow boards, this is /ot/. >>1106965
Imagine that, not hating another woman because she's exposed herself to disgusting perverts online. What a libfem ideal. I hate the scrotes, not her. I don't want her to do it, that doesn't mean I have to degrade her along with the men.
I dont know whats happening to this thread kek
Anon said her friend is camming and i simply told her if she meddles into her friends relationship then she will lose her friendship and from what she said, she does camwork so im assuming getting paid for either nudes or touching herself.
No where does it say shes having sex with guys or doing extreme things (like shitty stuff like submissive shit or getting spat on idk) so i told her she made her choice and we shouldnt shame her for it. Now anons claim to care about how evil the sex work industry is but by bashing sex workers youre siding with moids who see them as worthless holes.
Can we have some nuanced conversations? Why does everything have to be about liberal feminism or radical feminism?
hello nonna im >>1106976
Is it possible for you to find a part time job even if its just a cashier? Do you make a lot of money camming right now? Are you planning to save up the money? You could try making money on youtube instead. Do you like make up or videogames? If you make a lot of money then please save it and quit if its messing with your relationship. Sorry anons are judging you.
Id be scared to say it to your boyfriend because you dont know how he will react and whether he will tell it to your family. Please be safe nonna
Okay, you're still not reading properly. She is not the one defending it. She came here asking if it was cheating to do so, she is confused and if you actually read the posts you would notice she said she doesn't feel good about it or like it. There are other
anons defending camming, I am not one of those anons. The problem I have with you, is you getting mad at someone who was obviously groomed into online sex work instead of being mad at the people who pushed her into it and the fucked up world we live in that normalizes it. Be mad at the anons who are
defending it, but don't get mad at her.
I told her to go to therapy, how is that pitting le libfems and radfems against eachother.>>1106987
I got confused, I thought I was talking about the retarded anons going "lel it's actually empowering", anyway I tend to zone out when people start defending sexwork. Anyway anon should stop any and all camming nonsense not because it's cheating but because she is painting a target on her back and even though she probably doesn't show her face she always runs the risk of being found out/doxxed. Moids on cam sites are degenerates.
No one said its empowering. No one even used that word. You just get triggered
when anons dont have a rageing hate boner for sex workers.
See this, retard >>1106927

Can any UKnonnies give me some advice on picking between two unis? I've looked for advice elsewhere but I trust the farms implicitly.
I'm stuck between Exeter and Durham. I'm so worried that I'll get stuck living with a bunch of druggies and alkies who just want to party; I don't drink and parties are the bane of my existence so it sounds like a fate worse than death. Out of my friends already at uni, the ones with the best flatmates are also those fortunate enough to afford the most expensive accomodation, but I'm poor as shit so I'd have to work my ass off this summer to be able to do that. I know that there's shitty people at every uni but I want to give myself the best chance to fit in, make some real friends and actually enjoy myself instead of hating every minute and wanting to throw myself on the train tracks.
I'm leaning towards Durham because it has such a good academic reputation but Exeter seems like the nicer place to live. Any advice at all would be welcome!!! Please help!
How can it be based and not empowering? It's based and
it's dehumanizing and demeaning? Hmm… that doesn't seem right!
It's like a weird destructive habit. I guess it makes me feel good in the moment, but after the moment passes I hate myself more than before, and the money I do make, doesn't feel good. You are right, distraction is the answer and I am usually able to distract myself easily with studies and work. I slipped up once, a week ago, for the first time after entering this relationship, and it's been on my mind ever since. I don't want to be a cheater, but how can I face him now? I don't know what to do with my boyfriend, it is my first legit relationship and I have fucked it up.>Are you doing it as a way to rebel against how women have to be “pure”?
Not at all, I so wish I was 'pure' just a normal muslim girl, and not how I actually am. I know why it is… daddy issues and csa, it is so typical, it's funny. But don't worry about me nona, and thank you for listening to me blabber…. my initial plan of making it about a friend kinda went to bust, kek. Have a good day, nona.
Not british but durham seems better than exeter in general according to the internet
More importantly, can’t you go to a more relevant city at all?

What bands do you think everyone should listen to once? I feel like I either meet people who don't listen to music at all, or people who are total experts and listened to a gajillion songs.
Stuff I grew up with was classical music, the beatles, abba, boney m, the rolling stones, queen, britney spears etc. etc. but I have absolutely no idea about most rock and metal bands.
The problem is calling her Romanianon people’s first thought is Romani + anon. I thought I saw anons saying there’s a Romani anon and
a Romanian anon. I vote that we call any romani anons romaninonny and romanian anons romanianon.
I know someone that lives with a schizo family member that refuses to medicate and it's fucking awful. She's afraid of showering so she stink likes hell and always wears the same clothes. Constant word repeating and talking in circles, not understanding anything you tell her. Not to mention the outbursts, random yelling, getting upset over random shit, being in zombie mode. Not allowed to do certain things in the house like simple chores or she'll get triggered
. It's maddening and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

>>1107181>Are your sexual partners men or women?
Men>Did you grew up in a very religious household?
Nope luckily>Do your partners care about your pleasures when having sex?
My current partner does, my past ones didn’t >Do you have a sexual trauma?
Not exactly, but sex with one of my exes was really gross, he was repulsive

I mean, Durham is a far better uni so I think of those two it's definitely the better choice. A more academic uni will attract more academic people who are less likely to party loads. Quite a few people I knew from school went to Exeter, and they were very basic sporty party girls, but fairly academic. I don't know anyone at Durham so I can't make a case for it really. I always hated the idea of a campus uni personally, so in my opinion Exeter is absolutely a nicer place to live, but the best way to decide is to go to the open days and spend a day wandering around to assess the vibes. I'm sure you have your reasons, but if your grades are good enough for Durham why don't you consider some other city universities that are higher up the league table than Exeter?
You're absolutely right that there will be shitty people at every uni, but you will only have to be in halls for one year. Sorry to say this, but I know very very few people who enjoyed halls; I absolutely hated it, made no friends there, and moved in with friends from my course and societies instead. Do make sure to read reviews for the halls; they give a good overview of what to expect.

Thank you for your replies nonnas I love you>>1107049
Durham definitely has a better outward reputation than Exeter, but it's also really far away from home for me (I live in a tiny bumfuck village only an hour or so from Exeter, should have mentioned that). Both unis have similar reputations for being full of rude rich people.
As for why I haven't applied to city unis, I explicitly avoided cities because I find them scary and dangerous. They're just not my thing! For reference my first choice was Oxford (got rejected last year, reapplied after getting perfect grades and worked my ass off only to be rejected again. it was my lifelong dream to go there so my self-esteem and motivation and my life in general have completely collapsed, but I'm doing my best to move forward and find a new reason to exist lol. It's not easy but I'm trying!) At this point even if I wanted to change my uni choices, I'm pretty sure I can't because it's past the deadline.>>1107382
Thank you sm for your advice about researching the halls, that's really useful nonna and something I didn't consider!
You're right that Durham probably has less party types, I've seen so many people complain about the lack of night life there and taken that as a positive lol.
I'm definitely going to try and visit to get the vibe of the unis, I'm finding it so hard to decide just from online information so I think that'll be the only thing to let me definitively make a choice!
The fact that I'll only have to be in halls for a year is something I need to realise, I think I'm putting too much importance because most of my friends are currently in halls, but it is only 1/3 of the course. Would you say it's easy to make friends who are 'on your wavelength' at uni so you can get nice housemates? Most of my friends say it's very easy but they're very agreeable, outgoing people, so I don't know what to think. I'm not antisocial or a freak but I didn't have many friends in Sixth Form because I spent all my time studying (and considering it was all for nothing, I wish I could go back and strangle myself!) and most people find me boring anyway because I don't drink. What happens if you don't find anyone who wants to be your housemate? Or is that super rare and I'm just overthinking things?

I found a secondhand dvd of Perfect Blue for 25 euros secondhand. It's one of my favorite movies, but I'm a NEET right now and it seems like a stupid investment. I never found it anywhere though, and I collect dvd's (only of my favorite movies though, I have about ten in my collection). Should I get it? I have the money, it just seems like a dumb investment considering I don't have an income right now. I am very lucky to live with my parents rent free and have enough money in my account, should I just take the plunge? I could never find it for a reasonable price before (although this is still outrageous for a dvd imo) and have loved it to bits for years now. tl;dr: I hate spending money

I'm a product of miscegenation. Particularly belarussian and palestinian, would I be considered white ?

I mean if you consider Italians and Spaniards white then north africans are almost the exact same skin tone should be either

No, it's because some of them look like picrel.

>>1107589>North africans are almost exactly the same skintone
as an italian not really, some italians are very tan and im sure some North africans are very light but on average
they're very easy to distinguish from each other and North africans are treated as foreign. picrel is mixed egyptian/italian next to a full italian

these are also north africans, there isn't just one look for these people
fr, and euros get so triggered
when you make the continent out to be one place or whatever and don't distinguish between western or eastern euro. while some talk about asia as a whole or the middle east as a whole.
The US is fucked in the head, they treat white Latinos as POC
but native Africans are treated as white? How does that work?
