Do you have opinions on things that don’t belong in the vent or things I hate thread bc no1curr? Found some milk from a community that hasn’t been active since 2007? Is there a fight going on between two YouTubers who nobody but you has ever heard of? This is the place you rant about it.

Some topics include

>internet drama between people who aren’t milky enough to be personal cows

>vintage milk that you weren’t on lolcow to comment on, but bringing it up in the cows thread now is spoiled milk
>your strong opinions on mundane things that bother nobody else but you

The monster high reboot sucks megaballs. The doll collecting community as a whole is filled with whiny sjw (they/thems and they/hes) wetfarts who will stifle any criticisms with accusations of being a bigot or whatever, and retarded misogynistic faggot men and there is an incredible concentration of these two types of people in the monster high doll collecting scene. And they will rush to call you a nasty bitter 30 year old (kek) if you don't like the reboot.

All of the things I hate about Monster High G3 (lore/character changes):
>Lagoona BLUE… is pink
>Frankie Stein is canonically an NLOG themlet
>Frankie is blue now…
>Frankie no longer has neckbolts because nickelodeon is a faggot company who didn't want to work with Universal
>Clawdeen is HALF werewolf???
>Clawdeen and Howleen are not related
>Clawdeen is now a loser dork
>Draculaura is a witch for some retarded reason
>Draculaura no longer has cute Romanian accent
>Cleo's not a bitch anymore, not very fun
>Cleo and Deuce no longer dating, therefore losing some of the punny campiness the original had
>Deuce and Clawdeen are a thing…?
>Cleo would not date Frankie, she would bully the fuck out of her for going by they/them KEK
>Mouscedes is back for some reason
>they made CATTY NOIR, an incredibly famous popstar in universe, a giant fatty for diversity points
>Ghoulia, the nerd, is now le epic skater gurl
>Ghoulia, the zombie, no longer speaks in zombie groans, and no longer moves slowly… like a zombie
>Ghoulia is green now, kind of fugly as hell
>Toralei is a rich mean girl…
Like it's so retarded.
Also the dolls are incredibly fugly now. The clothes, the fashion, it's all so cheap looking. They watered it all down in the most "grew up on tumblr and kweerio livejournal" millennial. I guarantee if Steven Universe had been canceled none of this shit would have touched Monster High.

Some niche community drama I think about often because it was so insanely stupid is when "cottagecore discourse" started up on Tumblr, where a bunch of people decided that the cottagecore aesthetic (which was still quite niche and limited to tumblr at the time, this was late 2019-early 2020 before it exploded) was romanticizing colonization, and everyone who reblogged pictures of landscapes and farm animals and indulged in fictional daydreams of living alone in little houses with chickens were problematic racists because the teenagers wishing they could garden and bake for the rest of their days reminded them too much of American colonial settlers, regardless of whether or not any of those people were American.

(Admittedly, the aesthetic had drawn a sizable crowd of the tradwife/white supremacist freaks, but they were generally shunned from the wider community from what I remember and most cottagecore blogs were falling over themselves trying to prove they were pro-LGBT and not racist.)

It was pretty amusing to watch from afar (all the usual virtue signaling and "omg so problematic!" from the tumblr crowd), and as cottagecore became a mainstream thing the incredibly stupid thinkpieces about whether or not escapism through nature photos was ethical really made it special. It was especially great when indignant farmers (real ones) joined in on bullying the children and 20somethings and posted about how much their life in the countryside sucked ass and was so unfulfilling, which maybe said more about them than anything else. I remember seeing insane posts from people raging about it and how racist it was. Some of the people raging about it were pretty cowish tbh (i remember one going by the kekworthy url of cottageburner that seemed particularly unhinged), but I don't care enough to try and look them up. Did anyone else witness that shitshow or is this a little too tumblr focused?

I agree with pretty much everything (I just really like Frankie's design no matter the generation even if I hate that her bolts aren't there anymore) I hate new Lagoona's everything. Hate how Frankie is a themlet and canonically in a relationship with Cleo of all people. It's just badly written fanfic at this point.
I also hate Cleo's new design. I keep seeing people praise the new designs because they're "realistic" without acknowledging how bad the colors are, the fashion, and the makeup. Like holy shit the makeup and fashion are so bland and uninspired. Like what is up with Abby's outfit. She looks like she'd walk into a Starbucks at the Mall instead of a Coffin Bean at the Maul.
I know you say it's caused by Steven Universe's cancellation, but sadly this was a problem before with Mattel. Just look at how terrible Barbie is. Barbie is literally dollar store quality. If only Mattel had let MGA buy them out. Maybe we would've gotten at least 1 decent 4-year run of a new Monster High generation.

This milk is rancid as fuck, but I can’t discuss it in her thread or the “what do you really think about cows” thread cause I don’t really have a strong opinion on her as a cow, it’s more of just rambling and no1curr
I was not around during the time Venus left Margot, but from reading old ass threads, it was surprisingly hopeful and a lot of people were rooting for Venus. Ofc there were people concerned about it, but the vast majority were really happy that Venus got out of her abusive situation (don’t whine and say “but she wasn’t abused” she was, it just shouldn’t be used as an excuse for her bs). Hell, I still see this one banner (picrel) wishing her good luck in her new life. Kinda sad.
It’s weird to watch people lose hope for Venus in the old threads. Cause well into her bs, lots of people defended her bc “she was abused and doesn’t know how the world works, she’s in a new country and she’s still learning” and this is very true for maybe the first year, cause it’s a huge change. But after enough bullshit, people finally got tired of her dumbassery and started realizing that she’s a fucking wreck. I’m not really interested in Venus as a cow, more than I’m interested in lolcow slowly getting tired of her shit. I was not here for this time, but fuck, i wish I was.

Ayrt, I meant that if SU had been canceled early in its run then the dumb, pointless kweerio livejournal millennial stuff wouldn't have touched Monster High kek.
I agree with you about Abbey, even though she's genuinely one of the best g3 dolls out at the moment. She's very pretty, but in comparison to the older Abbey it just feels like something is missing entirely. She's lacking something very crucial. It's like that with all of them.
A lot of G3 looks like it was inspired by Aliexpress listings LMFAO.
>If only Mattel had let MGA buy them out. Maybe we would've gotten at least 1 decent 4-year run of a new Monster High generation.
That would have been an absolute dream. The prototypes for g3 look like something MGA might have done, too. I really wish they went with something like the prototype dolls, I think they're so adorable. Frankie's is kind of lacking though, but that Draculaura and Cleo are soooooo fucking CUTE.

Have they ever shown prototype Lagoona? And yeah the Frankie proto has something to be desired. It's like the beginning stage where you can see they were going downhill. Also her oroto-head was stupidly modeled after the nlog actress that played her instead of doing something cute like Draculaura.
I mean out of the original lineup, who could they choose where people could come up with a decent reason for her being curvy so their decision could be justified? Deuce is a man. Cleo is a mummy so she's auto skinny. Ghoulia is dead and therefore auto skinny. Frankie is supposed to be made of perfect human parts and sorta dead/alive. And Lagoona is a swimmer. Clawdeen is a possible choice but also could've possibly promoted obesity in pets. Also Clawdeen was chosen as the MC and therfore had to be a nerdy relatable half-human (despite the fact that Draculaura is literally a vampire and therefore previously human as well as Ghoulia and Cleo unless they changed even more lore)

the inuyasha reboot sucks. the following is my stoned ramblings about my thoughts towards the anime and what i would have changed about Yashahime.

1) Sesshomaru having sex with his 16 year old ward needs to be addressed. They have given NO justification for ruining a decent character with pervert shit besides the fact that ~he loved her uwu~. Such a cope, especially for a character who is barely warming to humankind via watching Rin grow up, I really don’t care that he dropped her off in a village for four-five years before they got together officially. Yashahime is such garbage fanfiction-esque writing. They took the fan favorite mysterious figure in the series and neutered him to make the pedo-washing tolerable.

2)He should have had an arranged marriage with a demoness similar to Kagura in my opinion and the series should have explored the lives of his full demon children. If he has to knock up his ward, for whatever reason, skip the emotional intimacy and make it strategic. Maybe he knocked her up to give her crazy powerful half-demon children to protect her so he could fuck off and do real demon business. Literally anything else would be better.

3) How does Sesshomaru even know Kagome has a brother, let alone entrusting his (essentially) sister-in-law’s family to raise 1/2 of his spawn? It makes nooooo sense it kills me. Just chuck them on Kikyo’s sister. Anything is better. There might be a plot reason one of the twins goes to the future beyond just repeating the events of the main series but it wasn’t a good enough reason for me to remember frankly.

4) Inuyasha and Kagome being robbed of the chance to raise their child is, imo, such a disgusting betrayal to do to previous main characters. It robbed me of breath to find out because it is such a fucking bleak premise for your nostalgia bait anime reboot.

5) just look at these ugly fucking designs. i want them dead. inuyasha’s daughter is fine i guess but the twins are soooo bad.

I just believe that these posts are blatantly made for the hopes of being viral and becoming known for starting a discussion that nobody really needed to have. If you search Ghetto fabulous it literally looks nothing like decora, even when it borrows from from decora which has only been done a handful of times. Neither fashions look anything like what the Indian woman is wearing.
There's zero relation at all, it's only in recent years because some female rappers get sanrio nails or that one time Nicki Minaj wore a decora inspired outfit. Think the kind of stuff that lil kim would wear in the 90s or the film b.a.p.s.

I love him so much, someone did a fanart of him next to one of the comets and I desperately crave more content

I used to have an obsession with drawing ghosts when I was younger so it makes him even cuter to me

cinnamorolls and lloromanic demons need attention. it's kind of baffling with the increased popularity of cinna worldwide that there's not more focus on the rest of the cinna gang

I need to familiarize myself with the jewelpets more

Stupid stale milk that I'm writing out because I have no one to ever tell about this. I was part of this video game forum. They had a voting system as well as this feature where if you earn enough points from votes, you'd automatically gain some restricted editing privileges, the idea being that good contributors could help clean up low quality posts.
One guy had this ability and some powertripping mod was harassing him one day for no reason, so he just decides, screw it, and spam edited posts to show an image of the unjust treatment he received. Obviously he was banned and the edits were reverted. But for whatever reason, this was a big deal to people and spawned a ton of autism.
For one, some users who joined years after the fact, who have never even met this guy, would make posts WKing him and campaigning that he should be unbanned because "he totally changed! I believe in his heart!!" I have no idea why, but for some people he was like a martyr even though half of them didn't even know anything about him or his ban.
On the other hand, others were bizarrely fearful of him and constantly gossiped about him like some sort of ghost story. The story got insanely exaggerated too, with details about him being an illegal hacker who went rogue and broke the website after he was rejected by a mod that he had a gay crush on. It snowballed as this absurd game of telephone where people who don't know a single thing about this random user were tinfoiling and basically inventing fanfiction about it, and actually believing it.
For whatever reason mods on the website had a seething grudge over him and treated him like this Voldemort figure where you're not allowed to mention his name. One would even ban people just for being friends with someone who vaguely alluded to support for him, so random people were getting thrown under the bus for the weakest association.
I actually know this infamous user and would talk to him off-site, and even he has no idea why he became such a legendary and polarizing figure over practically nothing. One time he went back and made a bunch of duplicate accounts, not even doing anything with them, but people started crying and losing their minds over seeing his accounts in the user list, sending furious messages to him saying to go away and begging mods to do something. One schizo had a meltdown because he perceived one of the account usernames to be a specific, targeted insult towards himself (never mind the fact that nobody knows who he is) and everyone just went along with it. One mod also had a meltdown about how he was getting bullied somehow through all this and another mod had to step in and take control because he went paranoid banning totally innocent accounts.
The strange thing is, despite being totally unremarkable, there is something magnetizing about this infamous person that just makes you want to either alog him or adore him. Maybe it's just because this random cult of personality sprang up around him, but as someone who actually knew him, I almost kinda get it.

I do survey's for extra cash, and I did one, it was about sex or something, when I finished it, like the last question it booted me out but the last page had a link to a cow's twitter on here.
So I was basically scammed by a cow? or whatever. This happens a lot though with Surveys and it's so annoying.
Yes I'm broke and a neet, but i made over maybe $700+ since November doing surveys on multiple sites. I just try not to think about how much time I'm fucking wasting and how little a hour a get.

Does anyone else ever think about what it must be like to be a long term lolcow?

LC will have been around for a decade this year which means pixyteri will have been a cow for over ten years. Even lesser cows like Shayna have been discussed on this site for seven years which is most of her adult life. Imagine being a cow for so long that it becomes a completely normalised part of life.

I watched a video on lack of female villainess in anime and then attempted to make a 3x3 for female villains in weeb media (including weeb stuff that isn't anime) and FUCK it was hard! Firstly I kept it to one per franchise as an attempt to not have Umineko take up the entire thing (since it has a lot of based evil ladies) and then to think of 9 that I think are actually well written (which was hard enough) to at the very least entertaining to watch (Yuno definitely falls into this category) took a hot minute!

What are some series with actually good female antagonists?
