Have a question that isn’t important enough for the advice thread?
Is it something everyone seems to understand but you can’t?

This is your thread

remember to ignore bait and trolls

No. 259413

This is not a troll question.

Why does everyone on the Internet hate Jews? Especially on imageboards. I don't know a single one irl. I don't need a whole essay, but I just find it odd.

No. 259414

They seem to be a really slowed community.

When I moved to a western country the hate seemed to come because they had community places only for Jews and in Latinoamerica because they where not catholic.

That’s the only hate I’ve seen.

I think in /pol is because of edgy points combined with their love of war.

How do women in asian countries deal with having narrow beauty standards?

No. 259416

Why does lolcow hate PULL so much? Did I miss a war throughout the years or something

No. 259417

short answer: they don't really

long answer: most asian countries are really pushy to men and women about getting married and starting a family. so despite all the ideals people settle a lot more than they do in the west. this is why a lot of men cheat, they didn't actually want to get married but they did to fulfill obligation and are bitter about it. women can basically either settle and risk a shitty unhappy marriage, but happy parents, or a shitty unhappy job and disappointed ones. a lot of the beauty standard ideals kind of fall flat in reality.

No. 259418

PULL has the same issues as any userbase

Circle jerking, popularity contest and also allows white knighting because “bullying guyssss •W•”

Personally I fucking hate the stupid things they write under every comment they make because it clogs the threads and are 2edy4me

I love lolcows no bullshit standards and the anonymity it allowed me to follow drama without the need to suck up to other users like PULL

Lolcow allows honest unfultired opinions in a mostly female environment without it being forcefully nice.

There's a common stereotype that jews are greedy and would do anything for money. There are also a lot of very wealthy (and well known) jews, that some people think they control everything and, therefore, evil. And of course for edgy points, like the other anon said.

No. 259466

Thanks for answering!

PULL users, the stereotype at least, are simply annoying. Often underage, very snowflake tumblry whilst shitting on snowflakes themselves. On imageboards some don't integrate well and crank their bitchiness up to eleven because they think imageboards are about being mean edgy boollies.

Probably because original /cgl/ oldfags must be around that age by now.
4chan has been around for like 15 years or so, if you were 18 by the time it was first launched you would be in your 30s now.

No. 259666


30-year-olds are millennials, they're not geriatrics. they were the first generation to come of age on the internet so obviously they made up the largest userbases of imageboards and similar forums 10-15 years ago. i know this is the stupid questions thread but…wow

No. 259683

Not being mean, but I'm genuinely curious how old you are.

First off, people get engaged/married straight out of college or even high school. Don't assume married anons or ones with kids are 30+

Also, older anons who were in high school/college during 4chan's great newfag influx no longer have homework or exams to worry about. Late 20's-early 30's is the best time to fuck around on imageboards.

My little personal anecdote, started posting on 4ch in 2004 at age 19. I don't really consider myself old but to answer the question about "where do they find the time?" Well, let's just say my social life is a hell of a lot less active than it used to be. Also, no kids or marriage.

No. 259931

Similar question to >>259416, but why does lolcow seem to hate crystal.cafe so much?

Most of the anons there came from here so it seems kind of weird how the lolcow userbase hates the cc userbase so much and vice versa. I've been there since the beginning and to me it just seems like an extension of /ot/ and /g/ minus focused drama threads, so i find it weird how much the userbases despise each other.

No. 259934

It's because it's a fucking tumblr-tier hugbox. I used crystal cafe for awhile until I was banned for literally nothing, and it's probably littered with larping men anyway.

No. 259944

The premise of it was nice. It could have been a chill board for girls to discuss shit without the need for nitpicky gossip. But it quickly devolved into softie tumblr bullshit and got raided by /r9k/ every other week, and now it's just a bunch of trannycels and handmaidens circlejerking each other.

It's also boring as shit and there are no clearly defined rules about the level of cattiness allowed, so some people end up getting banned for "being too meanie uWu" while others can shit up threads all day.

No. 259953

It is a shame because I really loved the idea, but these Anons are spot on.


Handmaiden hugbox and a weird, “forced” girliness to it all that someone pointed out a few months earlier. Someone said she was banned for gently criticizing prostitution; there was another thread called “Interesting Women in History” where somebody (iirc) pretty much swept all of Catherine the Great’s accomplishments under the rug to shriek about her promiscuity. Sucks, I was hyped about it.

No. 259960

I remember that and I remember people like you being really annoying about it instead of letting it go. You're gonna pretend there wasn't a thread here being equally paranoid and checking everything they were saying huh.

No. 259961

>Most of the anons there came from here
In the beginning, yes. But then the creator advertised it elsewhere (it now has a userbase that consists of people from PULL, Tumblr and 4chan also) which is why it went rapidly downhill. Even when it was mostly users from here posting there, they were of the opinion that lolcow was full of "catty bitches" and they tried desperately to force a different culture or a "cosy" atmosphere which backfired horrifically because you can't "force" something like that.

I guess my reasons for hating it are:
>it's full of trans and men pretending to be women (I suppose to be expected from a site that advertises itself as "for women" and was shared all over the shittiest parts of 4chan where pretending to be a woman is a rapidly growing FETISH)
>it's subjected to a lot of raids and trolling which is unbearable
>it seems to have a lot of SJW tumblr types, whereas we tend to be a bit more radfem I guess (we seem to have different opinions on trans people, prostitution, feminism and men)
>despite trying to convince everyone (including themselves) that it's "cosy" and they're all really sweet and feminine, it's actually got an incredibly aggressive userbase and there's a constant passive-aggressive atmosphere which makes me uncomfortable and very reluctant to post (this is probably also due to the high number of men that use the site)
>expanding on that, fights break out over the strangest of things and I posted some innocent things a few times only to come back later to an absolute flood of just plain nasty messages, have never had that experience here (where people tend to be very sympathetic or helpful)
>I was banned for something incredibly minor and they ignored my appeal, I never wanted to post again because I wasn't even sure why I was banned and how to avoid it in the future?

>so some people end up getting banned for "being too meanie uWu" while others can shit up threads all day.
Yeah 100% this.

It's disappointing because I've gotten to really enjoy being in a mostly female space (here) and I'd love to be a part of another. I wish lolcow was popular enough to have other boards, I was especially excited for CC to get an /x/ board, since the one on 4chan went to shit.

>Someone said she was banned for gently criticizing prostitution
I was the anon that posted about this in the vent thread. Just give y'all an idea of how much of an uwu hugbox cc turned out to be, I posted two articles related to prostitution. One that stated that the CEO of Backpage was facing charges for wittingly facilitating human trafficking and child prostitution on his website, and the other proving that Germany was still facing significant issues with human trafficking after legalizing the industry. I basically said that women (and sex trafficking victims in general) should be given resources and help exiting the industry as a priority.
A few hours later and there was a post saying "remember to be sex positive girls!" or some shit like that under the conversation. Left the site for a couple of weeks then went back to get some pictures I posted on /img/. Discovered I was banned and my post history was deleted. I checked the thread and that aforementioned post was gone too along with everything else.

That was the last interaction I had on cc. I'd been posting there for many months too.

That's shitty. Most of the cc users are from pull and underage or insecure bitches from r9k (thanks admin). They're too retarded to understand the difference between destructive behavior, oppressed women in the sex industry, and sex positivity.

No. 260108

I was using crystal cafe as soon as it existed and it has been awhile since I used it but I'm surprised I wasn't banned even once when I posted about transwomen being male mentally ill and sexist perverts several times as well as other semi-controversial things. I guess it's because it was before the userbase changed but I got a bunch of replies saying I was wrong and a bigot for that. Crystal cafe is boring now, you can't say anything without offending someone except it can actually get you in trouble with the admin instead of starting a discussion.

I feel like there is a set opinion you are "allowed" to have online and if you defer from that (to a completely reasonable, kind and fair/neutral alternative one) you're instantly the Worst Person who's sympathizing with the enemy/secretly a nazi

Blind sex positivity is not a good thing. Sex positivity is actually connected to pedophilia and crime, which these educated 14-year-olds don't seem to understand.
Shaming an adult woman for sleeping willingly with men/anyone is a different thing to pointing out that for a lot of women prostitution is a terrible life which they didn't choose preferentially (ESP trafficked women, those who have pimps, basically anyone other than comparatively rich girls camming and escorting)

I also never see mentioned the appalling view many men have of prostitution, for example the "joke" about dead prostitutes/hookers. Of all women prostitutes are considered the most disposable and publicly worthless by men - their customers (this is separate to escorts who I think men have some reverence to)

Honestly think there's a lot of spoilt teenagers and housewives making up a lot of the online "voice" for women which is creating this naive narrative of blind acceptance to everything. Pointing out toxic things are toxic is not judgement or exclusion or intolerance.

In the middle ages in Europe the vast majority was Christian. Back then Chistianity forbade you to lend money to another fellow Christian - you were only allowed to gift it.
Jews oviously noticed that and started lending money. Soon that "business" grew more and more, but the Jews also started increasing interest. Therefore Jewish families gained wealth but were also hated, because afterall they had the upperhand over especially the lower classes. Be poor - borrow money - high interest - can't pay back - lend more money and so on = hate.
So even centuries before the world wars Jews already were despised and segregated, but also owned the most (and it's still like that even nowadays), so you could say that all these stereotypes about the rich and greedy Jew are in fact the truth.
On another note, they're also said to have killed Jesus, which played a role in them being disliked historically, but nowadays that argument is obviously no longer relevant.

No. 260123

Samefag but I forgot to add: My younger brother was in Isreal just a few weeks ago and the way Isreal/Jews act certainly doesn't help in bettering their image.
Already at the airport they segregated travelers in Jews and non-Jews. Jews were simply let through but all others were questioned. My brother and his companions are European, so it was still somewhat okay, but they were really racist against people who even looked remotely Muslim.
Then in Isreal there are groups of very religious Jews, that abide by their own laws, don't need to work etc. They act horribly, spit at Christian priest and treat women just as badly as Muslim.
Him and I are really not any of those "muh religin of peace"-leftists, but in that case you really can't help but feel sorry with how Isreal is allowed to treat Palestine.

No. 260143

What did they say in your ban?

No. 260146

>and treat women just as badly as Muslim.
It's an Abrahamic religion as much as Islam is so no surprise there. I've read online that Israel was becoming a touristic place compared to a few years ago and I was a bit skeptical but I guess I was right to be.

No. 260148

That doesn't mean anything. Just recently I watched a vid about this 'branch' of Jews and they married a girl of when she was just 15, they also don't allow women to sit next to men in buses, if a woman is on her period she's seen as unpure etc. - that's what I meant with similar to Islam. Christians or normal Jews in the West don't do that shit.

No. 260153

Not all Muslims do that as well. It's usually the more extreme/radical Christians, Jews and Muslims who do that, it's just that on average in the west Christians and Jews don't practice all that much or straight don't care about religion compared to Muslims from my experience. And even then I heard about more and more people born into Islam who don't care or believe anymore but I don't have sources.

Anyway this is getting off-topic so I'm just going to add that I was skeptical precisely because of the "branch" of Jews you mentioned, I already heard about them before reading that Israel was a nice touristic spot.

No. 260197

I think it's a lot of people who grew up with/own dogs who are incapable of understanding cats have a completely different set of behavioral patterns. And this is coming from someone who has only ever had dogs, but at least I'm aware of their differences and traits enough to not write them off.

No. 260200

Some users probably thought you were a robot and mashed the report button.

I've been banned here for no other reason than other anons getting pissy and reporting my posts when they've participated in the same behaviors. Stupid bans happen and I don't think that's unusual for any chan type board.

No. 260208

I don't hate or even dislike cats, but I find cat lovers annoying when they spout the "cats are better than dogs! dogs love people out of stupidity while cats treat us like shit and expect us to worship them, so it makes them more intelligent" crap.
I also hate the "shy uwu introvert who's not like the other girls, cause she drinks coffee, reads books (read: john green) and loves cats".
I also met a lot of bitchy women who are can't shut up about their precious kittens.
Cats are ok, but people are annoying and I imagine this might carry over the poor animals for some people.

No. 260218

It doesn't say anything out of the ordinary. I just get a pop up when I try to post saying "You are banned," or whatever.

That's a bit of a reach tbh. I'd like to think that anyone with enough sense would realize that a hardcore robot wouldn't give a shit about what happens to those women.

No. 260221

I hate them because of their attitudes. They will eat you right away when you die because in the end you’re just a food dispenser. They kill birds for fun. I hate cat a lot of cat owners because they just let their cats roam outside to murder native species into extinction, also their shit is toxic.
Scientists have studied dogs and they literally find us adorable and are actually loyal and care about your welfare. If you die your dog is going to wait until he’s starving before he eats you.
I don’t think cats should be killed or eradicated, I can appreciate a pretty cat, but they really shouldn’t be house pets because they don’t view companionship the same way pack animals do like dogs and birds.

No. 260223

this sounds more like why you dislike cat owners rather than cats lmao. But I do agree that some cat people can be annoying nutters and that alone can turn people away from cats. I hate when people bring up the cats vs. dog debate, both have their ups and downs and it just depends on what the individual owner likes and the kind of personailty the animal has.

No. 260228

but anon, cats killing animals due to instinct is wrong! especially in suburban/urban areas where humans have already disturbed their habitat and killed most of them already to make room for their buildings.

but i think cats should stay inside, not just for safety or whatever, but if you have cats outside it changes their temperament and makes them somewhat feral in a negative way. it really skews their social abilities.

ok but in the end both will still eat you anyway because y'know animals. Interesting reasoning tho, sometimes cats do kill for fun but as another anon said most cats are indoors so they don't really come into contact with outside animals. Also birds can be pests (like wild mice), especially with pigeons shitting all over the place or groups of birds chirping loudy at 3am. Birds can be aggressive too, the other day I saw 3 birds following and swooping towards a neighbor's full grown male cat, he was 100% spooked and desperately trying to get away from them.

I don't know, it was extremely popular on tumblr and facebook like two years back.
I know that it sounds mostly like disliking cat owners but I mentioned that the feeling of annoyance with those people can make one dislike cats. I used to mildly dislike them for that reason.

So will dogs. Why do you expect animals to not behave like animals? Are you stupid?

No. 260239

Actually studies have shown many cats view humans as big dumb kittens basically. That's why they'll kill animals and bring them to you. They think "you can't hunt for yourself so I'll get you something so you don't starve". It's sweet. Cats have also lowered the pitch of their meows over time just to be able to communicate with us. They like humans quite a bit.

No. 260241

This is just a general reply to the question >>260180 asked and to other cat replies ITT since idk who to reply to but as someone who works with and cares for cats daily(both feral and domestic, kittens included), people probably hate cats cause they're hard to understand or they just aren't the animal for them. Hell I know some people who prefer reptiles or rabbits over both cats and dogs so I find the cats vs dogs debates retarded.

Domesticated cats should remain indoors and if they have to go outside then perhaps they'd do well with an enclosure or harness training. Feral cats are a whole different can of worms and all that is going to depend on where you live and the funding/resources your local animal control and vets handle them. It also depends on your local environment(like >>260229 said, some birds are even considered pests). It isn't a one size fits all no matter how many articles/research you dig up in favor of or against helping gerals(can shed some more light on this if needed).

This. In the end you still end up eaten. If I died and the animal had no more access to food I wouldn't care cause it would just be surviving. I'm also dead at that point so I'm not using my body anymore lol.

I can't imagine deliberately harming one.

No. 260268

I felt terrible when I had to kill house mices. The poison I used takes time to act and slowly compromises the animal's nervous system. It was a bad idea and, way more cruel, and dangerous, than I expected. Considering that relocating the mice is as good as killing them apparently, next time I'll just use a good old mousetrap.
If only they didn't carry diseases I'd totally keep them as pets or roommates.

I can't think of a cat-person who has said "I fucking hate dogs can't stand them". Even if they didn't like dogs they don't say it the way cat-haters talk that basically stops all conversation.

I hate the smell of cats. Their shit and piss genuinely smells terrible to me. I hate the smell of cat food and litter too. You can smell when someone's a cat owner the moment you walk into their house, it smells like decay. I hate how cat owners are always covered in hair, just get a lint roller.

>they're not cute

Most of the things cat owners find "cute" are either disgusting or really off-putting. Cats scratch. They bite. They bring dead animals home. They fight with all other animals. That thing they do when they rub their head against your leg? They're just trying to rub their smell on you. They're really demanding when it comes to being fed or let out but don't enjoy any other interactions with humans, they'll scratch and bite anyone who tries to pet them.

>they don't enjoy our company

I think it's cruel to force an animal that doesn't enjoy our company to live with us. All other pets (dogs, birds, rabbits, lizards) get used to human touch but cats never seem to, they will always attack their owners. Other pets will do cute things to show they love you like sit and fall asleep on your lap, groom you, lick you, beg for attention etc. but cats don't show any kind of affection towards humans. I've actually seen pet chickens show more affection towards humans.

>cats are for lazy people

All other pets require a lot of work but cats basically require none. You don't have to walk a cat. You don't have to play with a cat. You don't have to wash a cat. You don't have to groom a cat. You can even forget to feed a cat and it'll be fine. I think people who get cats just want something that doesn't require a lot of responsibility.

Ultimately, I don't hate cats. I owned many cats when I was younger and I still pet "friendly" ones on the street. I just think they make shitty pets. I guess cat owners either think having a cat is "edgy" and "cool" or are just too lazy to take care of a superior pet.

how do you go to a public toilet while wearing a playsuit without having it littered with bacteria?

i have so many cute ones i wanna wear out in public but i don’t want it to get dirty. when it’s a dress you can just lift it up but with a playsuit you’d have to pull it down completely. i don’t want it on the gross public restroom floor and i don’t wanna touch it to pull it back on before i’ve washed my hands of bacteria either. i really don’t feel like getting a uti for avoiding going to the bathroom altogether.

sperg-tastic first-world problem, i know.

No. 260431

If it concerns you so much you could carry some antibacterial hand gel which you could use in the stall to clean your hands before putting the suit back on.

If i'm wearing a playsuit or jumpsuit I usually go to the loo with another female friend so they can help unzip/zip me.

That's not even true, unless you have the misfortune of getting a cat with a perpetually stank attitude. They just need a little bit more time to warm up to certain people but cats can be very loving and affectionate pets. It took awhile for my uncle's cat to get used to me being around but now she loves coming up to me for pats.
You wouldn't immediately go up to a stranger, then start demanding attention and rubbing up on them, would you? Why do you expect it out of an animal?

anon I used to think the way you do because all my friends cats were antisocial and aggressive.then I adopted my first cat off Craigslist from a pet hoarder and she was the sweetest pet I've ever had. she slept on me every night, sat J. my lap whenever I was on the PC and loved to play too. never scratched me or furniture. I miss her a lot.
after she passed of old age I got a second cat who was also just as friendly, I was bedridden for several months and she never left my side except to eat and shit. she died of cancer. my third cat I got as an unsocialized kitten and while she's less cuddly, she still runs to greet me at the door and even learned to sit, spin and high five for treats.

tldr some cats suck but a lot of them are great if properly socialized, just like a dog is. they just aren't people pleasers like most dogs, but as a dog groomer, trust me when I say there's tons of shitty, unsocialized dogs.

>they smell
Their shit smells the absolute worst but if they do their business outside you never have to deal with it. Cats themselves smell inexplicably good, they can roll around in dirt all day and smell nice.
>they're not cute
The things you listed are rarely considered cute, who the fuck likes it when they bring a dead animal home? They don't scratch and bite everyone who touches them, have you been trying to hurt any cat you've ever petted? Some cats scratch and bite when they play but it's not universal depending on personality, how they're raised.
>they don't enjoy our company
They enjoy it on their own terms. Just because they don't want to be manhandled doesn't mean they don't like being close to people, they like being petted in certain ways.
>cats are for lazy people
Yes, true. Better someone get a low maintenance cat they can take good care of than a dog they don't have the time to walk. What's the problem with that? Does everyone have to be a crazy pet parent and spend hours a day on their care? Does that make the pet better?

You can just say that a dog suits your personality more and that says it all, it's fine to want a more affectionate, engaging pet.

Does anyone here have any experience with learning Italian? I'm interested in picking it up because it's fairly useful for what I want to do with my life/career in the future, and I also just think it's a nice language with a beautiful culture.

I don't have any experience with any other Romance languages, but I've been learning German for the past six years, so I'm familiar with stuff like gendered nouns and learning new grammar structures in general.

I'm also really intimidated by the pronunciation, which sounds stupid, but I still have a really ugly American accent when speaking German, and I just know I'm going to butcher any Romance language. Is it hard to learn the general pronunciation/cadence of Italian?

No. 260612

I speak it. I grew up in an Italian household, so for me, I just sort of picked up the pronunciation that way. There's some stuff you need to just practice until it becomes second nature (like "i" is pronounced like e is in English, "h" is silent, put emphasis on letters with accents, etc) but overall, it's much softer/flow-y than the chopped way english sounds. Good luck anon!

It seems like it works the same way as Spanish.

No. 260620

Seems like I just have to get used to it like any other foreign language! I guess I'm just intimidated since I'll be learning it on my own, whereas I learned German through a classroom environment and had someone to coach me. Thanks for the well wishes!

I guess it differs by school system. Where I'm from, there weren't any mandatory foreign language classes, and you were able to choose between Spanish, French, German, Latin, or Mandarin (I chose German). Spanish was definitely the most popular and 90% of people didn't take it seriously. Even many of the people who stuck through Spanish classes from the earliest you could possibly take it were completely incompetent at the language. Not that I was some amazing fluent German speaker in high school, but I could understand native speakers and communicate decently, whereas the Spanish kids would just laugh and say "Yeah I barely know this language at all, I can't understand what those people are saying haha!" I think kids just blindly took it because everyone told them it would be useful, but didn't want to put any actual work in.

Hey, I've been studying Italian for 10 years including college level. I love it, it's such a beautiful language and was easier to learn than the other languages I have. The only pronunciation I struggled with was rolling my r's but I was the only person in my class of 30 who had a problem, so you should be fine. Grammar-wise, I only struggled once we got to things like the subjunctive but it's not even used that often in everyday conversation. Other than that, Italian pronunciation is really straightforward and thanks to having so many vowels is really easy to read, you just read what you see!

You should definitely start watching some Italians on YouTube. I really like Lucrezia because she speaks really slowly and clearly. She does vlogs like vid related where she'll show you something from Italian culture and grammar videos that cover all the things that are tricky to grasp in the beginning. When you get a bit more confident, there's also loads of classic Italian cinema to help you get a feel for the pronunciation (La Vita è Bella, Il Postino, Cinema Paradiso, La Dolce Vita…) or if you're interested in plays people have uploaded entire plays from Dario Fo and Luigi Pirandello on Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NK4CCtXvcW0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjpfKafnPMk) or ofc if you're into opera, check out what's in your local cinema because my local artsy cinema is always screening things like La Traviata, La Forza Del Destino and Madama Butterfly and they're usually live which is really cool. I also listen to whatever's in the Italian music charts regularly.

Anyway, hope that helps a little. I'm happy to provide any other recommendations!

Not sure if this is what you mean, but sometimes people who were born in the United States get asked by other (white) americans "where are you from?" and if they say something like "Los Angeles" the person will ask "No, I mean where are you from?"

Which is so frustrating to me because if you ask people their ethnicity instead, they’re generally really happy to talk to you about it. I even had someone tell me the town in China their family was from. It’s just the wording of the question which implies they can’t be American if they’re not white and they don’t belong in America. If people could just learn to have a little more tact and know how to ask people the questions they’re curious about, things would be less hostile. Wanting to know isn’t the bad thing, it’s the implications behind the common question that is.

So do fat people feel more like physically (cause there’s more of them) or less because they’re all stretched out?

No. 262005

I think unless they have nerve damage from diabetes or something, getting a rub on the back feels no different than if a skinny person were to get the same rub. It doesn't feel any more intense or worse.

Although I imagine if you're talking about a massage it could feel different, because their muscles are underneath a layer of fat and probably can't get worked as well as a thinner person's. Doesn't mean they're not feeling the same pressure, their skin has nerves even if the fat cells don't.

Not trying to race-bait but is there something about Indian culture that makes them so god damn rude and inconsiderate when they immigrate into western countries?

All of my apartment neighbors are Indian and they're so self-centered.
Every day the women let their kids ride bikes and scooters in the breezeway in front of my door which is incredibly obnoxious and loud, especially when they scream and shout. The neighbor above me used to let their kid run and jump all over the span of their apartment from morning until 11pm. It didn't quit even after I corresponded with management several times; they pretended not to speak English when I politely asked them to stop. I had to clap back by banging on the ceiling before they got the message.
Every one of them is unfriendly, I smile and say hello just to get no response and have them stare blankly.
One neighbor's kid almost threw trash on my head as I was on the ground floor heading back to my apartment, and as I went back outside to photograph all the litter the father wisely picked it up before I returned. Still littered well after that.

rubbing isn't pressure wtf?

also you're wrong, again,

Researchers at the University of Vienna claim that having small breasts may equal more pleasure in the bedroom. The larger your boobs are, the more glandular tissue there is than fat tissue, and the latter is what accounts for the breast sensitivity that comes in handy during foreplay. Alan Matarasso, M.D., a plastic surgeon in New York, explained to Men's Health that "the nerve that transmits the sensation of the nipple is more stretched" in small breasts, meaning it's simply easier for small boobs to get stimulated in sexual situations.

In the University of Vienna study, women with big breasts experienced 24 percent less stimulation than those with smaller boobs.

real dumb question but

something i read a lot here, is that you can't be anorexic if you're not underweight. logical. but, can you be underweight without being anorexic? legit curious. where do you draw the line?

underweight is like a number under 18.5 bmi and i think i read once that it's not considered anorexia till you're at least 17 bmi? i don't know if thats legit. you can't be anorexic if you're for example 18.3 (Barely underweight)? is everyone who is a 17 bmi anorexic? is it not so much about numbers and more about messed up body image and eating habits? this is gonna get messy, isn't it?

Can regular doctors prescribe acne treatment stuff?

I'd go to a derm but there's none in my town. If I'd try to make an appointment idk if I'd be able to go because of work, so it'd be easier to just go to a regular doctor.

Also, can the treatment really cause liver damage?

No. 262683

Yeah I got some tablets from my pediatrician when I was a teen. They worked alright.

No. 262694

>Also, can the treatment really cause liver damage?

There's different kinds. Topical, antibiotics, and then medications (isotretinoin/accutane).

Topical medication like creams will do nothing to your body, doc will just advise you to avoid sunlight because you could burn easier with it on.

Antibiotics have the same side effects as above, but if you're on them for a prolonged period you could get weird changes in your gut like diarrhea. Antibiotics destroy the good gut fauna in your system.

A medication like isotretinoin/accutane? Yes, it has the potential to seriously damage your organs and give you a load of mental problems. Strong evidence linking it to causing IBS. They will make you sign consent forms in order to take it, and if you're a woman you will be made to go on birth control.
I can't be your judge, but there's plenty of horror stories on the internet.
For the record, these are used sometimes in chemotherapies.

No. 262695

Reading about accutane and antiobiotics prescribed for acne and their side effects is scary. I'm only using topicals right now, but I'm terrified that one day it won't be enough and I'll have to deal with the side effects of more severe acne treatments. I fucking hate having shitty skin.

Right now I've been on the antibiotic doxycycline since April. I think I have to quit it on my next visit because I can't be on it forever. Tbh I've had very minimal problems with it. Maybe some diarrhea and upset stomach if I don't take it with food.
The last time I did a round of doxy was about 5 or 6 years ago. As long as one's not on it continually, it doesn't mess anything up.

I've been enjoying the relatively clear skin. Some nights I even have forgot to wash my face before bed, and sometimes before work, and I didn't break out. Feels good having normie skin, too bad the ride's gotta end and I have to go back to topicals…

Sounds like he's just a little apprehensive about making such a huge commitment and tbh you should be too. You're also quite young and a 2 year old relationship is still fairly new. Give it another year before you start pressuring him for a ring. Living together before marrying is generally a sound idea though. If he resists cohabitating you'll know that he's definitely not ready to propose.

not unacceptable, because some people naturally want/think about marriage more quickly than others which is normal. but that also means you should respect him wanting to wait on it for a little while.

i would be concerned, however, if he doesn't seem interested in it as a future prospect. not wanting to move in together is a little weird if he is indeed considering marriage in the future.

No. 263336

I mean your boyfriend is 25 and he feels like he's too young to move in with you? That's weird and sounds like just an excuse to me.

Personally I think it's a bad idea to base serious decisions purely on age. 25 is not too young to make that kind of decision if you have the self awareness to process how the relationship works and the benefits it provides you. You don't get wiser purely because of aging, you actually have to work on wisdom.

If you move in with this guy make it clear that cohabitation is the next step before marriage. Don't just do it because it's convenient or easy. It'll save you a lot of heartbreak in the future.

Example, would a woman who lifts multiple times a week and be stronger than a man who doesn't work out at all and weighs ~50 lbs less than her? Does height factor into this? Is a 120 lbs 6' man as weak as a 120 lbs 5'2" man? Would a woman who weighs 170 lbs with a bf% of 23% be stronger than both, since her lean mass weighs more than either of them?

Nah as long as the handmade is decently done you'll be fine. If your mom is a seamstress it sounds like you'll have plenty of help getting that's decently constructed. I know a few handmade lolitas and they look fine.

I don't know your budget but you could save up and buy it secondhand if that helps. I've seen some stuff go for like 50 bucks but that all depends on the brand and state of the dress.

Handmade >>> knockoffs

People in my comm will trip all over themselves complimenting well done handmade clothes, even moreso than the latest AP print because let’s be honest, there’s no skill involved in clicking “buy”.

However it does have to be well made. Shitty handmade will likely be made fun of just like Milanoo lacemonsters and obvious replicas are made fun of. This has nothing to do with jealousy, people just like laughing at ugly shit.

Start with something simple, like a rectangle skirt with a half-elastic waistband. Make sure your hem is at least 2,5x your waist, preferably more like 3x or 3,5x. Lolita requires a lot of fabric. Stick to solids at first and stay away from novelty quilting cotton for the love of god because that shit never translates well to clothing, no matter how kawaii you think the print is. Add visual interest through ruffles and pintucks and lace. Laces.taobao.com is a good source of lace though they do sell some knockoff lace.
Maybe invest in a volume or two of Otome no Sewing so you can see how lolita patterns are usually done. I started with “lolifying” normie patterns for blouses and JSKs and honestly that was a waste of time and money because too many alterations were needed to get the proper details, proportions and silhouette. Even if you don’t fit the books’ standard measurements (many don’t), it helps to see how lolita patterns look in 2D and maybe your mom can help you re-draft them to your size.

Although personally, if you haven't had a serious talk to him about it, I would and give him one more chance to break away from her. I had a codependent mother and it took someone pointing out how fucked up my relationship is with her to wake up and stop being so affected by her. Granted I was 22, not 26, but I can't say I wouldn't have remained scared of her if another person didnt help me come to my senses. I totally understand if you don't want to do that though. It's not your responsibility.

Hmm, I'm not sure how to describe it. It could feel pretty intense and good if done right, though I still think it's inferior to clitoral stimulation in every way.

No. 264735

i used to find it either painful or sensationless but then the mental part of my attraction to men developed a lot more, and i treated my vaginismus, and now i'm shocked to say penetrative sex is one of my favorite things. The way I think of it
Clit stimulation is so obviously physically pleasurable that I don't even need to be thinking about anything for it to feel somewhat good, and it can take me from unaroused to aroused.
Weird fetish shit isn't physically pleasurable in its own right, it only feels good if you find the concept hot.
Penetrative sex is kind of in between. It can feel really good, but only if you're already horny and find some aspect of it conceptually hot.

I guess the main thing I like is the extreme physical intimacy? Having a hot guy I really like all up in my guts. The person I used to crush out on being so close to me they're actually inside me and bouncing me around from the inside. The person I was shy to admit I find beautiful looking me right in the eyes as he slowly but deeply pumps my pussy. Feeling the pressure of his cock and squeezing it every time he thrusts. Etc etc etc. It only works if I'm really wet, maybe even with additional lube, and if I'm really really sexually attracted to the guy. It also pairs really well, as pretentious as that sounds, with clit stimulation. They kind of compliment and intensify each other, so once in a while I'll penetrate myself with a dildo while I use my vibrator.

I have no idea either, anon. To me it feels awkward at best no matter how much lube we use. The emotional connection >>264735 described is really nice, but I still wish we could have that without all the mess and soreness afterwards.
Though I also don’t experience any kind of pleasure from clitoral stimulation either, so maybe I’m just broken. Usually there’s no sensation at all, at worst it hurts, at best it feels like I need to pee, and wetting the bed isn’t my idea of a good time so I’ve never seen any reason to continue past that point.

No. 264856

Sometimes the dick hit a perfect spot inside my vagina and it feel like a wave of pleasure starting from this point and going through my whole body, other time it just feels like having a meaty stick go in and out of my pussy. It depend a lot on how relaxed and aroused I am. I find getting eaten out or masturbating with a vibrator more pleasurable, but there is something so extremely intoxicating about having a hot guy get hot and bothered by you and taking so much pleasure in fucking you that I end up loving it more.

I would like to input my opinion towards dogs

>they smell

Their natural stench reeks. No matter how many times you bathe them, they have a natural odor that smells like shit. Cats have no smell unless the owner is lazy to keep up with the litterbox and vacuuming. I know immediately when someone has a dog just by the stench of their odor and breath. They never groom themselves either.

>they're not cute

Dogs are territorial. They bark constantly, they drool, they bite people too. They will see another dog on the street and lunge at it. They will chase strangers given the opportunity to be escaped from their leash. They hump people, and its disgusting. They rub their asses all over the floor and then the floor needs cleaned.

>they don't enjoy our company

Dogs only care about food. There have been studies that most dogs would go to the source of food before their owner calls them when given the choice. Even when the dog has been fed already and not hungry. There are also people I know who had dogs bolt out the door and never return, despite trying really hard to be careful.

>Dogs are for lazy people

I see tons of dog owners leaving them outside on a leash 24/7. No need to clean anything, just let them live outdoors to poop everywhere and never pick it up. A lot of dog owners who do fortunately keep their dog indoors, do not bother to clean up the dog shit in the yard or mop the stench of dog on the floor. Their hair gets everywhere too and yet they don't clean it. The furniture smells like them.

I don't hate dogs either. I personally just don't find them as sincere of a pet compared to a cat. I've had good experiences with cats. Dogs I have not.

Because they're braineashed by their codependent asshole cats. Id rather have a smelly, food motivated dog than an asshole cat who shits in my house and tears up my blinds.

American anons: Do you actually waste a lot of food?

In my country it's unheard of for someone to not have a compost bin and if they do, to throw out perfectly fine food. For example a half eaten sandwich or leftovers. If we have any scraps we put them in the fridge to eat later and if we don't it's treated as a huge waste.
I got recommended a video by Buzzfeed "Tasty team tries to not waste food for a week" where they basically show themselves putting all food they make in the bin after photographing and they act like it's so mighty to get a compost bin. The part that really got me was when a girl was so proud of herself for packing a freshly salad to go instead of throwing it out right away. I know it's technically a food business but it made me think. How does it work from the perspective of a person living in the USA?

No. 265289

Poorfag American here.
A lot of American food corps waste food because of the fear of lawsuits/people getting “sick”. Many places won’t even feed they’re employees— when I worked at Starbucks, we tossed tons of fine looking food into the trash. I could always see the discomfort on my coworkers faces, and when the boss was t around we’d often shove expired food into our bags to take home. I would say that most people I knew growing up saved food. My mom would make a giant pot of soup or spaghetti, and we would eat it for dinner for a week.

The buzzfeed crew is generally stunted adult babies, not a flattering representation of anyone . I'm a white american and I don't think I waste a lot of food. I compost, save for later, or just eat it for the most part. Sometimes my bf will shake his head if I miss a few scraps and throw them out, so I'm not the best, but filling an entire trashbag of food scraps in a short time and let that go to waste stings. I work in the food industry and even besides that…if you've ever had any kind of budget and you accidentally waste a significant amount of food some time, you kick yourself so hard for it later that you form a food saving habit.

I swear every buzzfeed video is just "The buzzfeed team tries basic thing millions of people do every day" and the buzzfeed crew ewing and fanning themselves saying they can't do it, and then either remaining bratty or judgmental about it, or reluctantly realizing that it's not thaaaat bad

As a european, I too think americans waste way too much food. I hate watching american television because there's almost always a "food fight" scene or some kind of gag that involves wasting food and that shit is impossible to watch. Also, I see a lot of YouTubers leave their taps/showers on when they're not using them which is a huge no-no here. Like turning on the tap and just walking away to do something else.

When I was in school, there were non-stop campaigns telling us that we're destroying the earth and we have to change our lifestyles (use towels instead of tissue paper when you wash your hands, recycle bottles/paper/plastic/old clothes, turn the taps off, keep your showers to a max of 15 minutes, don't travel by plane often if you don't need to, take the bus and transport each other to school). It made me think about everything I do and the impact it has.

But americans in general don't seem to give a shit even though they're probably contributing to way more environmental damage than any of the countries being lectured to. They love their trucks and taking flights across the country. There seems to be no part of american education that shows them how to recycle or lectures them on how to behave at home. In fact, most americans I see online think that global warming is a conspiracy theory. That country is fucked.

Sure, and so do cats, but they don’t all smell like shit. I didn’t have dogs growing up but some of my friends did and I could never smell them on them.

I have nothing to base this on but my own experience in retail, but I believe a good chunk of American waste is attributed to corporations and large chain stores like Wal-Mart, Costco, etc.

One single store can throw so much shit away. Each store is sent seasonal (or even weekly!) graphics to put up for sales, spotlight items, etc. only to be taken down a short time later and tossed away. Plastic stuff to hold in pricing in shelves or on pegs are constantly replaced as they get old. Equipment gets broken or used up and eventually tossed to make room for new stuff. It's insane.

You're right and I see the statistics but the US still has a huge liberal population, and liberals here are plenty concerned about recycling and minimizing waste, and they treat anyone who doens't believe in global warming as a pariah because of the "all scientists agree" meme. It's a huge country with many subcultures, and many of those subcultures are very liberal and/or environmentally focused.

I really don't want to defend my stupid country too much but basing your idea of the average american on fake hollywood movies and clickbait videos is really ignorant. If you're going to bash us, bash us for something you can confirm we actually do, which some of anons have now.

I'm an American and my family is somewhat wasteful but it's usually from saving food we think we're going to eat later, forgetting about it, and then having to throw it out when it spoils. throwing perfectly good food directly in the trash feels terrible.

I had to sit through quite a few "reduse, reuse, recycle!" assemblies as a kid and every school I've ever been to had recycling bins in every classroom which we were encouraged to use. A lot of Americans are wasteful as hell of course but like some other anons have said the brunt of it comes down more to corporations having wasteful policies than most families being wasteful.

Also I actually have been in food fights (not a participant, but caught in the crossfire) and it was usually some of the shitty delinquent kids getting genuinely angry at one another and throwing stuff during lunch, not people just starting a food fight because it's a fun activity or something. Sometimes I'd still eat the food lol.

Penetrative (vaginal) sex feels like my clit is being rubbed but from deep inside, also my vaginal walls feel …good? Hard to describe. Like a kind of heat that feels amazing? Idk

In case anyone here isn't aware, the whole dark pink thing in pic related is the entire clitoris.

From http://www.abc.net.au/health/features/stories/2014/10/28/4116350.htm

>“Both the internal and external parts of the clitoris are made of erectile tissue which swells with blood when a woman is aroused.”

>“…penetration of the vagina alone does not mean there is no involvement of the clitoris”

Also, I feel this sensation when being penetrated in missionary or riding my man: "there are short ligaments that join the clitoral hood to the vulva, so when the vulva's being incidentally moved during penetration, that is actually stimulating the glans of the clitoris.”

Here's a helpful animation to understand how the clitoris is stimulated from within (it's CG):

And of course, I absolutely must be aroused for any of this to feel good. That means comfortable, confident, and safe for me personally. It’s very important.

Ok this is a really stupid question, but I've noticed that in fandom there's a really intense hatred for people who ship incest. Obviously here I'm referring exclusively to fiction, but my question is what's the big deal? I can totally understand why you'd be against like, parent/child incest, as there's an implicit power imbalance there, or between like… older/younger sibling, even. But in the case of twins, like Cersei and Jaime from Game of Thrones, or even the Osomatsu brothers, I don't necessarily understand the taboo? They're adults, and in the case of same-sex incestuous couples where offspring aren't a possiblity, what is the harm? I mean personally yeah it's gross and weird, I couldn't imagine being attracted to my brother, but I legitimately don't get the like… pearl-clutching moral uproar.

i reaaaaally liked fandom and fanfiction shit in my teenage years. shipping incest has always been controversial. regardless if its a band, or a book, or a movie, etc, it turns a lot of people off. at some point i did try reading it, and the whole "don't tell mom and dad about this" etc shit they throw there made me gag.

i think some anons need to remember that theres many people that get raped by people in their own families. i've had it happen to me and most of the other victims of molestation i've met online have gone through that too. so incest is a very tricky thing morally because a lot of rape victims were again raped by siblings or family members. so it does bother a loooooooooooot of people.

if that's your fetish, fine go ahead. but to "normies" and to actual victims its a disgusting thing. its like people who have a fetish for underage ships and shit like that, its controversial as fuck for the same reason. in real life its not sexy, its traumatizing. so it feels like you're writing a cute romance story that's built upon abuse and gross shit. you can read it and love it if you want, but most people will call you a weirdo for shipping things like that. even if the incest ship is of age, it's still socially gross to most people because its not normal whatsoever to be attracted to your silbing, so people are still gonna find it creepy.

it's just socially frowned upon. i don't see why people are blaming it on PC culture/pearl clutching or whatever when its always been like this. incest is creepy, get off to it if you want, but people are allowed to call it creepy so grow a pair.

No, I definitely see where you're coming from, and I understand that people are allowed to be disgusted. It just comes across as strange to me that like, if there's no CSA, no children involved at all, just brothers fuckin' or twins or cousins or whatever the fuck… I don't know. It's not something I'm into, it's just weird to me that a consensual relationship between adults is perceived as "disgusting" and gets such a visceral, intense rejection from a lot of people (but maybe that's just fandom space in general).

No. 266487

It's quite obvious why people are disgusted by all forms of incest. It's very naive of you to assume that because they were the same gender or age that that means there was no abuse. You're drawing an arbitrary line in the sand of what is "good" or bad incest. Like, if it's your fetish whatever, but it should be easy for you to comprehend why most people think it's disgusting.

No. 266489

I'm not trying to imply that there's no abuse between people of the same sex or age. I realize abuse can come from anyone. What I'm trying to say is I think consent is what would make the difference? In a fic or whatever where it's obvious that both parties are enthusiastic and consenting, it would seem to me that there's no reason to get up in arms besides just preference. People in fandom put incest on the same level as rape or pedophilia, and while if it's an abusive incestuous situation I can understand why, as a standalone thing I don't exactly agree.

What do you like about it? Is it situational or something you find yourself seeking out?

No. 266490

I don't see how writing a consensual, non abusive, incest ship with no power imbalance has anything to do with victims of irl incest. People are raped by family members, true, but also by friends, partners, strangers… if we can't read or write dynamics that have been taken advantage of by rapists in real life we won't have anything left.

If people find it gross or socially unacceptable, that's understandable Taking a moral stand against the idea itself doesn't make sense, unless it's specifically about certain abusive situations.

No. 266517

In real life probably 99% of any incest that occurs is rape

Why are you so dim

No. 266525

Even if that was true, which is pretty fucking hard to determine considering it's not the sort of thing people report when it's consensual, what does it have to do with non abusive fictional incest?

Stop defending rape you literal retard

Are you illiterate? You're making wild assumptions about statistics we don't actually have. I would never defend rape, I just don't think we have the information to assume it makes up 99% of all incest.

>Girls are the victims of incest and/or intrafamily sexual abuse much more frequently than boys. Between 33-50% of perpetrators who sexually abuse girls are family members, while only 10-20% of those who sexually abuse boys are intrafamily perpetrators. Intrafamily abuse continues over a longer period of time than sexual abuse outside the family, and some forms – such as parent-child abuse – have more serious and lasting consequences.(Finkelhor, 1994.)

I wasn't aware we were strictly talking about lemon incest fanfics. There are some that aren't all lemons. Your comparison doesn't make a lick of sense.

When did I say that? You do know I'm >>266556 and not the original anon you were talking to lol?
What I said, was you can enjoy fiction and not want it in real life.

Bad example, nobody is jacking it to Die Hard.

If you think something is sexy you fantasize about it happening in real life.

If you watch an action movie or a horror movie you are not fantasizing about it happening in real life, it's fiction which you passively absorb, maybe get scared or tense watching. Not turned on. As soon as we go into sexy territory it's natural to assume that person wants it to happen in real life on some level.

Which is why >>266570 is correct.

>If you want you can go ahead and tell me why (some) lesbians don't want to date bi women

I think bisexuality is just a turn off for a lot of people, especially women (generally speaking). I personally would rather date someone with the same sexual orientation as me.

No. 266809

a lot of people see bisexual women as slutty by default, because they associate it with porn or with threesomes. a lot of people either think we're straight but get off with other women just because it's fun, or think because you're attracted to two genders that you need to be with both at the same time and are more likely to cheat. it a lot of men will think you're a sex object who'll be down for threesomes or anything he finds kinky but also think you can't be trusted because you'll cheat on them with a woman. a lot of women think you're just playing around and are going to actually settle with a man (the 'evidence' for this one really just comes down to there being more men than women who date women so the chance is higher)

outside of dating, the hatred mostly comes down to the same thing. there's people who hate the idea of a woman who's attracted to other women at all but also another part that's assuming those women are degenerate whores.

No. 266842

The podcast Reply All from Gimlet Media actually had a great episode about the origins of the incel community like a month ago. You should look it up anon.
It seems it started as a forum, it was created by a woman funnily enough, more than 10 years ago, I have no idea were it will go from now on though.

No. 266844

Incel culture has been around for a while but Elliot Rodger and his online presence were likely the reason it blew up. IIRC the media attention his manifesto and videos received during that time also resulted in some websites doing articles about Wizchan, which was/is(?) a chan for bitter incel men.

No. 266851

Might be different now but when I lurked there in the past a couple years ago, Wizchan was actually full of open disdain for incels and they preferred to pride themselves on being voluntarily celibate or volcels. Most of them seemed to prefer to just be left alone and generally shunned the violent and self-righteous ideas of incels when it comes to "deserving" women. Opinions did vary and there was as much hate for "succubi" as neutrality/apathy, but I saw a lot of more reasonable outlooks there than there are within the incel community: zero entitlement to posses women, and a higher frequency of men accepting or acknowledging their differences and limitations such as shyness instead of only blaming others for their lack of belonging.

i believe that most cows from /snow/. particularly dolly/shayna, jill pixiee, and taylor nicole dean always respond to things on their threads. they take advice from there, do shit inspired by them, or full on respond to the criticism there etc thinking they're sneaky. they clearly lurk their threads, and probably check the site so often that they know farmer culture enough to not out themselves. particularly if they have multiple threads.

I feel like it's a very dumb question so I thought I will post it here: I'm currently looking for some new pants, specially some high waist ones. The thing is that it's been a while since I bought some pants (I rather wear my clothes until they are used aka stretched) so I buy a few new once like once a year and that's about it.

So my question is now: It looks like there not so much high waist pants around because this trend died down I guess and all I see are "Mom Jeans" and I wonder if they are similar? They look pretty high waist but kind of baggy around the tights and ass area? So is it more likely to look super chubby in it when you have a bit more around that area anyways I guess?

Hope it's not too late for an answer but do French men or boys usually have long or medium lenght hair there? That's the impression I got after consuming French media. Also, can men act in a more feminine like way without getting so much shit like most countries?

Most of my male friends have regular short hair, most boys have short hair too (although there is still some upper class families who let their young boy's hair grow).
The long / medium hair trend is more for artsy type and it was the standard haircut for young hippie guys in the 60s / 70s.
I do believe men can get away with being softer / more feminine in France thought, especially in more upper class or artsy parisians circles. I'm from the south and sadly the standard male behavior here is more macho-man and douchebagy (closer to Italia and Spain).

>Also, can men act in a more feminine like way without getting so much shit like most countries?

It's more or less like most western countries when it comes to what's masculine and feminine with small differences, but it also depends on who you know and what kind of circles you hang out with. In my case I found the guys from college weren't particularly effeminate but didn't really care about gender roles that much, but I didn't have that impression with male coworkers who are more or less my age. But at the same time I remember one of them being pissed off that a coworker asked if he were gay because he liked wearing pink and because some people thinks he's effeminate for being tall and skinny and having a weird voice even though his voice was deep. He sees himself as masculine and he's one of the straightest guys I've seen (and he's homophobic too so that's one of the reasons why he didn't like the question).

>I'm from the south and sadly the standard male behavior here is more macho-man and douchebagy (closer to Italia and Spain).
I can't really say I'm from the south but I noticed there was a difference between the north and the south as well. From what I've seen the people from the north don't care as much as people from the south.

One of my French teachers in high school was a francophile (ouiaboo), dressing how she thought Parisiennes dressed with lots of stripes, shawls and berets, speaking with a French accent in our native language (despite being a native speaker of that language), using gratuitous French while speaking even outside of class and constantly bringing up “but in France…” in every conversation. Even other teachers made fun of her for it.
I also know several anglophiles (teaboos?) who are obsessed with Dr Who and/or BBC Sherlock, use gratuitous English in conversation, put on fake thick English accents when doing so, refuse to listen to any non-English bands, go on trips to London several times a year and collect stuff with the Union Jack on it.

I guess these things are a lot more socially acceptable than being a weeaboo because these countries are our neighbours and there’s been a lot of cultural exchange over the centuries, whereas Japan is more “alien” to us.

People roll their eyes at 800-900 calories a day because for most people who aren't used to eating so little, it will be unmanageable and they will fail. It's not necessary unless you're super short. Just have the extra snack/meal and you'll be less likely to rebound and feel hungry all the time.

No. 277436

I agree that people are too generous with their calory budget. There's no way I'd lose weight without having a more caloric restrictive diet. I tried. I usually have one meal per day and consider it done. My diet is also low carb and high protein because for some reason I have fewer headaches and migraines that way.

Nice! Good for you. I don't feel hunger either but my biggest problem was to stop snacking (even though those were healthy organic snacks) out of boredom and procrastination. But as soon as you manage to control yourself and learn to ask questions like "Am I really that hungry?" it becomes a habit.

I also cut out industrial sugar, my skin has never been this clean and glowing before. And most importantly, I'm even less hungry. Sugar makes you crave food even more and will never satiate you completely. I'd totally recommend this to anyone to try with small steps.

800 or less will invoke starvation mode, I disagree with fasting but I agree with anons above who recommend around 1200 a day. Ana-Chans are all about 200,400,800 kinda shitty "diets" which destroy your metabolism hence the starvation mode "meme".

Starving yourself will slow down your metabolism which will result in weight gain when you return to normal calorie intake/gain what you do eat as fat, which leads to a vicious cycle of starving and gaining, see: EDs

Well what you are calling intermittent fasting a good proportion of the world population call "eating". Fasting is the wrong word to use in this context and is suggestive of not eating

That is because the more weight you lose the less calories you need to maintain. For example let's say Someone lost weight and went down to 100 lbs and after their diet they go back to eating the same amount of calories as they did at 120 to maintain…they're going to gain weight, it doesn't mean their metabolism was attacked by the starvation mode meme. Starvation mode isn't real lol

Man, this thread is so weird and full of people making assumptions about the other person's argument.

I don't eat breakfast either. I still eat 1100-1200 calories a day so I lose weight consistently and don't starve.
I want a bigger meal for dinner? No prob, I didn't eat breakfast.
I want a midnight snack? No prob, I didn't have a big lunch or dinner and walked in the afternoon.

Again, all I'm saying is that it's very unlikely for someone to maintain a 800-900 calorie diet, it's effort enough to do 1100-1200 consistently for most people.
And if original anon (the one who asked how to lose weight to begin with) is a fattychan, then they will definitely burn out trying to eat 800-900 calories with intermittent fasting.

Maybe your metabolisms already aren't working that well anymore? Even eating 1200cal a day brought me too a dangerously low weight, and it should be the same for any other healthy young person as well.

No. 277480

Starvation mode is very much a thing. It depends what "diet" someone went on to invoke it. Generally if someone loses weight they should do it from a healthy base like 1200 daily and not RAISE the base when they have achieved the weight loss they intended. Some people have faster metabolisms than others. I would gain on 1500-2000 a day. Finding out the ideal rate for you is an important part of dietary health.

Generally starvation mode is used to refer to anachans eating 200kcal a day and not losing a lot of weight because the body is conserving fat and energy. Generally the topic is raised to explain why going 200-400-600 or some shit will have much worse results than going 1200 a day, so I don't consider it a meme. It's description of real things the body does in tight circumstances.

No. 277483

Would I be right in assuming that the anons who suggest 800-900 calories a day as normal, with a binge day here and there, don't weigh over 125 pounds at any given time?

Tbh you can handle these "diets" because say if you think you're fat at 125, all you'd have to do to get down in the 110 range is be on this track with that budget for about a month and a half. Then you can have a few weeks of eating shitty and then restarting the cycle as needed.

Someone who's overweight won't benefit from these types of diets because they need to have consistent weight loss, sometimes for a year or more. Nobody, and I mean nobody besides ana-chans, seriously will stick with sub-1000 calories a day for a year. Especially if they're used to having normal meals (re: 400 calorie meals minimum 3 times a day), or suffer from metabolic syndromes like obesity where they have physiological factors that make them hungrier.

It's just not typical. It's not good dieting advice. Why would you suggest this to OP when you don't even know anything about them? It's just…so bad all around.

I dont think many anons here have ever experienced weight loss that was slow and steady, but more “oh I should just restrict more so I get to my goal weight faster”. Thats when it starts getting ana-chany. They probably freaked and disregarded that theycould loose weight at 1200 calories when the scale showed them weighing half a lb more the next morning because they didnt poop yet or they are just retaining water due to their periods or ovulation lol

No. 277495

It's not ordinary, most people eat throughout the day rather than a set time frame at 8 hours. Even a banana or latte would count if it's outside the window. You're argument seems to be "this is what I assumed based on my knowledge and I don't care if you provide evident otherwise", which isn't a strong one. And hey, if you routinely skip breakfast and restrict your eating to a set window congrats! You practice intermittent fasting!

Out of all the NBC sitcoms people recommend, why do they only say Parks and Rec or The Office? Or, I guess Friends if I want to include a 90s contribution?

Honestly, I think 30 Rock or Community are better, but anytime I ask the aforementioned people if they have seen them, I'm always met with a no. Hell, I'd even hazard a toss at Will and Grace and would strike out. I don't understand. These are solid comedy shows as well, and I don't know why people don't give them a chance.

No. 277546

I feel like 90% of The Office love is because people like to spout quotes and scenes from it and that makes people watch it and like it so they can also join in with repeating the same quotes and scenes. Honestly wish I knew, though.

But 30 Rock is pretty popular, I thought? Maybe the third most popular NBC sitcom after The Office and P&R. Community was also pretty beloved (especially in the The AV Club-like side of the internet and Reddit), but I thought production drama (NBC randomly pulling it out, Harmon getting kicked out then brought back, tension between cast members) dragged its momentum down.

Personally, I never got into 30 Rock because what little I’ve seen was similar to the meaner humor that The Office had, but I loved Parks & Rec and Community. The Good Place is also a (campy as fuck) good, but low key NBC sitcom.

I only saw your post on the front page, so idk what the rest of the argument upthread is about, for another reference.

According to the first TDEE calculator on Google:
>Basal Metabolic Rate
1,202 calories per day
1,443 calories per day
>Light Exercise
1,653 calories per day
>Moderate Exercise
1,863 calories per day
>Heavy Exercise
2,074 calories per day
2,284 calories per day

imo, the Sedentary calculation seems a bit high, when I was basically sendentary (just walking to class and stuff in Uni) 1400 kcal would have been a bit more than maintenance for me. I think if anyone my height is saying they "need" like 800 kcal to lose weight, they're not doing much exercise to compensate. I definitely had times I ate ~700-900 calories a day, but it's not starvation mode by any means (for me, I ate more low cal vegetables and such).

I think a lot of very short women, like myself, feel that we should also be extremely skinny/waifish. There is that kind of pressure out there, especially since a 10lb difference is a lot more dramatic on us than on anyone even a few inches taller.

I have been with my boyfriend for about 4 years, but I still get extremely uncomfortable when he touches me sometimes. Particularly when he moves his face in the general direction between my knees to my stomach area. It makes me panic and I feel this uncontrollable desire to just knee him in the face and run away. It's like nails running over a chalkboard to me.

Is this in any way normal? I was never sexually abused in any way that I know of, it just makes me want to cry being touched more often than not. I used to react very violently to being touched at all but I have grown comfortable with him for the most part, the only person I have ever actually wanted to touch me, but only in ways I can control, like me touching his arm or something. It's just that vulnerable area within like a two foot radius of my vagina by anything other than a penis.

Just tonight he was sitting on the floor and kissed my knee and I felt this extreme sense of violation and had to ask him to stop because I felt immediately in fight or flight mode. Just his face being anywhere on my body is absolutely unbearable to me.

I am definitely attracted to him and I try to curb these reactions but I know it hurts him to see me get so immediately afraid and turned off by him doing things that are just normal things people do in relationships, or just normal physical affection. I don't know what's wrong with me.

No. 277600

I'm the same with everyone and I've always been like that. I have no idea if that's normal or not, and like you I don't think I've got any reason for this to happen. All the people who have told that wasn't normal were the weirdest people I've ever known, with no boundaries.

Is there anyone good at MBTI? If so, are there any (strong) similarities between INTP and INFJ?
Why I'm asking: I had both results on tests, 3 times INTP and one time INFJ. I've read somewhere that each type acts like another type when "unhealthy", so I wonder if that may be it. Then again I don't remember well what type was the shadow of each type, and I don't know how reliable was the source. Lol

No. 277716

I'm aware. I just meant in general. Lots of very short women feel pressure to also be very skinny since extra weight on a short body can look odd. I'm personally fine with my weight now and the fact I could never achieve a waifish body in a healthy way.

No. 277717

Obviously MBTI isn't science, so take this sperg with a grain of salt.

Function wise, INTP and INFJ share both Fe (extroverted feeling) and Ti (introverted thinking). Based solely on that, you could be a very developed INTP who relates to others' feelings very easily or an INFJ who is great at processing information. Alternatively, if these functions are strong but unhealthy you could be an overemotional INTP or an INFJ with underdeveloped empathy/people skills.

The best method would be to see which primary function best fits you. INTP's primary function is Ti, if you find yourself picking apart ideas and information and categorizing them often then that may be the case. INFJ's is Ni, if you spend a lot of time focused on the future and possible outcomes subconsciously (especially in regards to people), this could be the case.

These are just simplifications, here are more in depth descriptions of how healthy INTPs and INFJs functions work together:

No. 277720

Should add to this, it would make sense for both INFJs and INTPs to be unsure of their type. Both can lack a strong sense of self (no Fi) and INTPs question everything to death.
So, if you were asking between INTJ and INTP I'd definitely say the latter.

MBTI isn't a 100% reliable thing of course and I'm not a pro (also saged for blogposting)
I'm an INTP with a developped Fe function and my bff is an INFJ with a strong Ti, so i feel like we complete each others in that way ? dunno if it makes any sense but like, she's feeling based so my developped Fe gets along well with her without being too much ? And her strong Ti goes well with mine, so we understand each other's feelings easily without being delusional and call out each other when each gets too much. (That's how i see it but if any anons wanna correct me on functions it'd be appreciated). I feel like INTPs help INFJs staying grounded and INFJs help INTPs with emotional detachment. But I'd like to know other anons POVs and stories with this !

They send a fake "confirmation" email from Paypal and then ask that you send them to Nigeria. Hahaha it was at that point we caught on.

She's an anti-Semite. I had a long explanation typed up but my damn tablet chrashed. The biggest red flags are her affair with Jesse James, quitting Miami Ink by calling her manager a jew bag, and her current husband's swasticka tattoos. More info here:


Personally I never liked her because she's tacky yet completely devoid of any personality whatsoever. She looks like she's been 40 with botched plastic surgery ever since she's got famous, and I was astounded to find out she's only in her mid-30's. Her tattoos are boring and her makeup line looks inspired by 2003 Hot Topic.

I've met some completely batshit people, worst being a suicidal alcoholic who was convinced he was in love with me (despite barely knowing me), best being a guy I met years ago who used to stream weird indie films for us to watch together. We even met up irl once since we lived near each other and he turned out to be a pretty chill guy.

nta, but start by following people who post things you're interested in by browsing the tags. If you start reblogging their content regularly and they aren't super popular they'll probably notice you and follow back. At this point it should be acceptable to start messaging them.
Alternatively just start talking to whoever without bothering with that whole reblogging nonsense. I've only done that because I'm shy lmao. Plus some people also only have messaging on for mutuals.

Most of those people (males) were tolerable as long as we spoke about books or music. When we got deeper, well… there was a lot of misogyny and hatred concealed there. Outright creepy fetishes and absurd political beliefs too. Also I could count on one hand the amount of them who wouldn't eventualy try to get into my very underaged pants. Which is creepy, since the average age for them was 25. Just them acting like disgusting pathetic creeps with zero consideration for others was what got me out of that clique.

i’m romantically attracted to both women and men but i’m not attracted to female genitals.

what does that make me? biromantic heterosexual? a snowflake? an attention whore (even though i’ve never been open about it and only the people closest to me know i like girls)?

i’ve always thought of myself as bi but having come to this realization i’m worried i’m just the walking epitome of why so many people write bisexual women off as straight women who play pretend for male validation since a lot of guys find girl-on-girl hot.

i’ve only ever had genuine crushes on/been in love with girls but they’ve also been rather androgynous in different ways (facial features/body structure/choice of dress etc.) so i wonder if i’ve just had girl crushes but how does that make me straight when i was genuinely in love with them?

Heterosexuality is about being attracted to the opposite sex, not specifically their genitals. So homosexuality is about being attracted to the same sex, not specifically the genitals. Have you fallen in love with girls and found you don't want to sleep with them? If that's the case I don't think you're bisexual. Personally I know girls who enjoy sex with other girls while still identifying as straight because they're not interested in girls in a romantic way at all, they just like sex.

It isn't just about genitals… There's tons of hetero men who hate female genitalia but enjoy the way it feels to fuck a woman. And vice versa. But to be in a homosexual relationship you have to enjoy the genitalia at least somewhat, especially in a lesbian relationship.

Do you want to kiss girls while feeling them up and all that? Suck on some titties? You're most likely bi if that's the case.
It may be a case of desensitizing yourself. I used to be disgusted by all genitals (even my own) in my teens, but then went through a porn addiction (wouldn't recommend) and I like everything now as long as it's not diseased. I was always attracted to both the male and female forms, though. I remember going through the initial stages of puberty and getting mad turned on by breasts hehe. And asses, regardless of sex.

I guess the big question here is, are you sexually attracted to girls otherwise? If so, the genital thing is nbd and can probably be overcome with some masturbation.

Is soy bad for you?
Not even memeing. I want to become vegan at some point but dislike almond milk. Then I tried soy milk today and loved it.
So will I get breast cancer and have my thyroid explode after one week or what?

No. 288392

I hate almond milk too, but I recently tried roasted almond milk and it doesn't have that nasty ass almong aftertaste.

Soy is pretty low in oestrogens, I think it's somewhat of a meme tbh. Sure it has some but not enough to make breasts grow significantly or anything (at least that's what I had read last time I checked)

No. 288397

My situation is sort of the same but opposite. I'm 100% for sure attracted sexually and romantically to women but I'm not romantically attracted to men and I'm not sure if I find them sexually attractive. So I were to use a snowflake label it would currently be homoromantic bisexual

Most men I don't even notice and if I do, then it's more of in an aesthetic way. Like I just like the way their features look together.
I haven't had a crush on men in years and when ever I do, it's always after they express interest in me, but I quickly lose interest (like in a few day or weeks) so I think that is me just like the attention and being flattered.

I also don't find sex with men repulsive but I just can't ever get into it, or anything.

I've been questioning if I'm just bi or Lesbian for the past several years now

in reality soy actually makes you produce less estrogen, not more, because the phytoestrogen takes the place of your normal estroge even though your body can't even process phytoestrogens the same way. but they do infact protect against certain cancers and diseases.

I'll have to give that a try, along with rice milk.
Dairy is the hardest thing for me to give up so I want to find the best fit.

Bless you, my flat chested sister.

Does that mean my test will increase? Will I build muscle more easily? That would be ideal, to save animals and get BUILT.

No. 288416

never tried rice milk, a guy told me it had no weird taste and was the one resembling dairy the most. Don't try oat milk tho, it's super weird.
You should try multiple brands too. I hate the Bjorg soy milk because it tastes like stale water, but the alpro one is delicious imo(both with sugar and sugar free, but I don't know if we have the same brand options depending on where we live)

No. 288424

I'm >>288341 , I think you misunderstood me. I don't think being homoromantic is a thing because being homosexual means being attracted to the same sex, not the genitals specifically. It's about the whole person, including the genitals (and yes, being disgusted by genitals can still happen, it's kind of irrelevant). Meaning if you're not asexual, and if you don't want to sleep with the same sex, I don't think you're gay (or bi, in this case). BUT some people insist on believing homoromanticism is a thing so I'm not gonna tell anon how to live her life. I just wanted to share my opinion with her.

No. 288462

i don't think test increases, atleast not by that much. soy products are fucking great for energy though. less calories than milk and the same amount of protein.

No. 288470

People in Asia have been drinking soy for centuries. If it was bad they'd probably have disproportionately high rates of breast cancer or men with titties, like some people claim. Dairy does more damage than soy because the majority of us still haven't even evolved to digest it. It's probably something the dairy industry came up with to try and destroy veganism like how they tried to force vegan cheese companies to remove the word "cheese" from their products or how Helmanns sued Just Mayo for not being "real mayo" and then had the cheek to sell their own vegan mayo when they lost or how the meat industry sued Oprah for promoting "Meatless Mondays".

If you don't like almond you should check out cashew (haven't tried it myself but apparently it's really creamy) or rice. There are loads of options.

Here's the stupid question: Do they really ask if you're sexually active? How can I answer that? Last time I had sex was a few months ago and it'll be a while before next time. I'm not necessarily active, but I was before.

Amerifag here, I never got a pap smear while being prescribed birth control, but I was asked if I was sexually active. Just tell them exactly what you’ve typed here, that you had sex a couple months ago and may again in the far future. Nothing wrong with being specific.

No. 289881

yes they ask you, but they're only asking because they want to know if it's possible that you have any STIs or could be pregnant. If it's been months, it's pretty likely that you're in the clear, but it's best to clarify with specifics just like you did here.
I would just say "No, I don't have any current sexual partners, but last time I had sex was a few months ago and it'll be a while before next time."

Not to be preachy or pushy, but it's good for you to get a pap smear at some point. I also have a problem with doctors and medical stuff (still have my wisdom teeth, panic attacks when I need to draw blood, etc), but avoiding it can have serious consequences in the future. Also, it will only get better if you expose yourself to it.

No. 290107

Totally agree. You really should get it done, at least once. Then when you're older you should get it more often. I understand it's scary but it's really not that bad. I remember in high school girls were all crying about how horrible it was but…it really isn't? I would rather get a pap smear/pelvic exam than get blood drawn. I know I don't speak for everyone, not trying to say my opinion is #1 but, pap smears are very important to a woman's health and early detection can save your life.

No. 290159

That's a really good question, I've been having trouble sleeping lately and I too get a really nice high feeling from tiredness.

I've only gotten a Brazillian once and the lady did wax my ass, she had me on my back with my legs pulled against my chest, she basically got a perfect view of my vagene and butthole, it's kinda embarrassing but not worst that a gyno visit. One of my friend had to get on all four to get her buttcrack waxed, idk but I feel like the position I was in is the best because your butt naturally "opens" whereas when you're on all four if you got a bit of ass it's going to get in the way and the lady will have to pull your cheeks appart or you'll have to arch your back which is… A bit much imo.

No. 290187

jesus.. okay thanks for the low down. Thats really embarrassing. Um. I don't know if I can do it but um ass hair is gross.

She's a really pretty girl. It's a shame she refuses to get help/doesn't acknowledge her problems.

I think the reason why her face doesn't look super scary is because she has a naturally wide and round face. They don't tend to look as sunken in as long/oval/narrow faces even at a very low weight.

No. 290443

nah it's fake, they just do tricky edits and cuts. just look at the video you're replying to. she only ever takes one sip of soup on camera and the rest of it is tricky food positioning.

No. 290446


Agreeing with >>290443 it is fake. Pay attention to the cat between 3:23 and 3:40, it moves over after the cut and zoom at 3:28. She's doing this over a course of a few hours/days and likely not eating it most of it other than a standard serving. She positioned the bowl over the cat face in a way that made it easier for her reposition it the same way next time. Plus most of these cuts clearly show the camera angled differently.

Many of these girls just do this for money because they are cute and will get views. I'm sure some real bulimics do but 90% are fake.

PCOS anon here, it does vary in intensity and also most girls who have it have some kind of hormone treatment ongoing which drastically reduces visible effects.
Asides from that, women with PCOS also shave, have acne treatments and skincare/haircare routines, so it's unlikely that you'll discover their illness unless you're their bff, their doctor or they're ESPECIALLY unkempt.
Of course, some girls might have it with more intensity, so even if they clean up fine they still may have moustaches, bad acne etc. but those are much fewer than those that have it mildly.

I cannot wrap my head around it.
Not saying they can't enjoy female singers, but I am surprised there are no male pop 'divas'.
As a heterosexual female, I find lesbians more relatable than gay men even though they go after guys too. I've read that they relate to the heartbreak and passion that those singers express in their songs, but to me the experience of straight women is so different to that of gay men it's not exactly understandable to me why are they so obsessed with those divas.

So don't be truthful? I would think that's obvious, anon. Omit your qualifications and you're hired.

it depends on where you live and how many other applicants they have. if your resume is less attractive than a ton of other applicants', it'll be less likely that you'll get picked. if you pick a place or type of job where not a lot of other people have applied, you'll have a better chance. apply to a ton of places so that numbers are in your favor. sites like indeed make it a lot less tedious.

because you have such little experience, be a little vague and put the duration as something like "spring 2015-fall 2015" and call it a seasonal position. the suggestion to list volunteer positions is great, it's what i did when i was just starting out. just list it as if it was a regular job. whoever the supervisor type person was will be your contact and just don't list pay. if they ask, which they won't, THEN you can say it was unpaid if you don't want to lie.

Why do so many imageboard dwellers and the like believe that ((jews)) have this masterplan with lowering the white population?
Wouldn't it make sense that it's in the jews/capitalists' interest to have as many people as possible to grow their consumer base regardless of color?

No. 297035

There's a wiki article about that:
>The phrase first appeared sporadically in the neo-Nazi publications White Power[13] and WAR[14] in the 1970s and 1980s, where it primarily referred to contraception and abortion. The conspiracy theory was developed by the neo-Nazi David Lane in his White Genocide Manifesto (c. 1995, origin of the later use of the term),[15][16][17][13] where he made the claim that the government policies of many Western countries had the intent of destroying white European culture and making white people an "extinct species".[18] Lane—a founding member of the organization The Order—criticized miscegenation, abortion, homosexuality, the legal repercussions against those who "resist genocide", and the "Zionist Occupation Government" that he said controls the United States and the other majority-white countries and which encourages "white genocide".[18]
>While individual iterations of the conspiracy theory vary on who is assigned blame, Jewish influence, people who hate whites,[19] and liberal political forces are commonly cited by white supremacists as being the main factors leading to a white genocide.[20][21][22][23] This view is held by prominent figures such as David Duke, who cites Jews and "liberal political ideals" as the main causes.[24][25] White nationalist Robert Whitaker, who coined the phrase "anti-racist is a code word for anti-white" in a widely circulated 2006 piece seeking to popularize the white genocide concept online, used "anti-White" to describe those he believed are responsible for the genocide of white people, and continued to view it as a Jewish conspiracy while emphasizing that others also supported the "anti-White" cause.[26][27][28][29][30][31][32]

I think it gained popularity because the richest people in the world really are all Jews and of course lately because of the refugee crisis. There really are European politicians who say things like "Its good that [insert coutry] will be less white because of migrants" etc, but since they are white as well, people say that they must be puppets of the US/Jews.

If a nation or state is more homogeneous in ethnicity and then it is more obvious and concerning to the residents that almost all capital is owned by a small ethnic enclave, and typically throughout history they eventually get sick of that and put a foot down - which if you don't know wasn't limited to Nazi Germany (pic related). Basically if the country is a conglomeration of minorities with no particular majority it's harder to say "Get out of our country" because some other group will say "oh YOUR country??" and with the groups fighting or at least all pulling in different directions, there will be less chance of any rallying against them.

I guess it depends on the severity and if they're undergoing treatment. I'm passable for not having BPD unless you date me or we're close friends thanks to medication and therapy. Some people are out there doing the whole nine yards of stereotypical BPD behaviour. The chance of you meeting a stereotypical BPD person is incredibly low unless you're out there doing things they would (reckless behaviour etc). However, passable BPDs like me are probably pretty rampant and either are undiagnosed or keep it a secret.
If you're aware of narc behaviour you'd be able to spot my mom being a narc after talking to her for five minutes.

The downsides are ones that such people don't mind.

Aaand it's also in part due to overrepresentation bias - those with these conditions are bound to mention it because it comes up in the discussions we have here. But normal people don't exactly go around mentioning the fact that they're normal, it's not usually relevant, so you end up with a lot of positive evidence of the presence of bpd autism narc mom and little to no evidence of their absence.

Personally, I would rather do an hour or two drive to check a PO box then the convenience of it being close by to protect myself. Also, be aware that they're not 100% safe since some stalker could easily locate where the PO box is and stake the place out until you go there to check your mail.

Seconding looking at reviews but be wary since not many people go out of their way to leave good reviews vs negative ones. Some reviews could be faked, and some are hyperbolic. It's best you find a salon that has convincing before and afters (looks authentic and not staged or like something found off of google). You can also try to find a professional salon that has their own website that talks in depth about their hairdressers and their background and experience so ou can be more confident about going in.

People who are fine with CC probably have never posted anything that even slightly deviates from their opinions on men or transwomen. Maybe I'm totally wrong and it's changed since the last time I've been there but posts like
>"I'm not a feminist, I love men :)"
>"Oh no I can't imagine a world without men because I love them so much and they're so important to my life also it'd be meanie weenie! :)"
>"I'm a redpilled woman and proud alt-right! :)"
make it really obvious that it's full of LARPers. Anything critical of men or transwomen was shot down when I was there. I definitely did not get the impression that it was "positive" but a very hostile place that they were trying to sell as "cosy" or "welcoming" (you can't force a culture on an imageboard, though!) I also saw bans for really stupid things, including when mods didn't share opinions with anons. I really don't want to frequent a place that is full of alt-right memes or support for scumbags like Peterson/Trump and if regular lolcow users who are genuinely women frequent CC then I'm incredibly shocked because the environment/opinions are drastically different.

It's a pity though, I supported it a lot in its infancy by starting lots of new threads and posting regularly even though it was quiet. I really wanted a female imageboard but anything branded as "for women" is naturally going to attract angry men.

No. 311256

a lot of what we find attractive is formulated by the media we consume. asian men weren't normally considered attractive because we never saw them as love interests in movies, it was the exact opposite, they're emasculated and portrayed as nerdy and weird. kpop to westerners shows asian men in a light theyve probably never seen them in, and also offers something "different". the style for dudes in america right now is roided out bodybuilder or hipster beard tattooed band guy. theres a lack of young, non-threatening but still attractive boys for teen girls to lust over. in the 90s we had nsync and the backstreet boys, leonardo dicaprio and river phoenix. after that it was aaron carter and justin bieber. right now theres really no one i can think of, one direction is gone, do teen girls care about timothee chalamet?

tl;dr teen girls have always liked pretty boys, kpop provides lots of pretty boys

keep in mind this is still pretty niche and your average white teen in america doesnt gaf about asian dudes or kpop at all.

There are a lot of anachans here so not sure if this is a good place to ask, but what does a normal mostly "flat" stomach look like after eating, bending over, etc?

I'm in pretty good shape and look mostly flat from the front and side most of the time, but can have a small pooch, especially while sitting, bending, after eating, on period etc.

There was a tumblr meme about all women having a pooch, so I was wondering how much that was true. I assumed that it's partially true in that if you're really toned you have less of one and the "bump" if anything is muscle, and if not, the muscle isn't going to corset your waist in.

Question seems too stupid for anywhere else but maybe people have opinions or were wondering too. There is so much posing and PS online that I don't know what it actually looks like normally.

As women we are biologically built to carry more weight in that area. Some people may have the genetics to have a flat stomach, but even after eating or when bloated, it will protrude, I have a friend like this. Some people no matter how thin it fit will have rolls when they bend over. It’s natural and don’t let anyone, ana or fit tell you otherwise.

Anon here is right >>311496 , unless you're seriously into ana-chan territory most women will always have some sort of a pouch/rolls when they're sitting down or having bloat from eating/periods. My friend is super thin, has a hard flat stomach when she's standing up, but when she sits down she gets a pouch. Some people lucked out with genetics and have a tiny waist with 0% fat even when sitting down but they are rare. Women naturally tend to have fat around their stomach to protect the womb.

I'm not sure if this does here or in the fetishes general but my question is: is it possible to just have a fetish for men? A friend told me it sounds like I'm not really into men and just use them as a fetish, it sounds ridiculous and I told the friend it's unlikely but the more I think about it the more it seems less insane? Idk, what do you anons think?

Some context for why my friend said that: I'm apparently incapable of forming an emotional romantic connection with a man. I'm good at faking one, but it's never genuine feelings from me. After anything physically intimate with men(right after I cum or it ends) I become disgusted with them and no longer find the guy attractive. When I'm watching straight porn or fantasizing, I'm always either seeing it from male POV or I'm 3rd person/voyeur. Growing up, before I even knew what sexuality was, I got turned on by sexy women on TV but I don't remember ever feeling the same about sexy men on TV. But it might be because women in general are more sexualized publicly.
On the other hand, it's completely different with women. I can have a romantic connection with them just fine, I don't feel emotionally detached from them, I'm very much turned on by them in every way not just in specific fantasies and kinks.
Is it possible my friend is right about me just fetishizing men because I grew up in an extremely homophobic environment where marrying one is inevitable?

No. 311609

I'm a bit similar, except I don't find men disgusting. They just have an exotic appeal to me, but I don't really see them as fully fledged personalities that I could bond with on all levels, while I do see women that way.

Did your conservative upbringing focus on warning you about men too, by any chance? Or grew up around too many men? I'm trying to figure out if I was memed into acting het or if I was made too paranoid to see men as human

Same for me, the very few men I was "close" to while growing up where fucked up sexist assholes, and all of them were relatives so there was no way to avoid them. And they were the ones telling about how I should not even communicate with boys my age as soon as I entered elementary school or they would beat me up and call me a whore or a slut. I was also bullied by boys at school and once I entered middle school and until now I barely had or have male classmates or coworkers. I can relate to the OP somehow, I barely see men as equal to me somehow, for better or worse. For the most part they disgust me, some of them I get along with are ok but I wouldn't call them friends except for maybe one. And even though I'm 24 now I only ever had a little crush on one guy because he's hot and I don't know him well enough to be disappointed by his opinions or his personality.

I feel conflicted because I wish I had a cute boyfriend because I feel lonely and I want to be in love but at the same time, I know very well that it seems more like in my specific case having a boyfriend is only good in theory and it's boring and uninteresting in practice, or it's just like having a friend that you occasionally fuck.

I call myself bisexual too but the comment my friend made is making me question the type of attraction I have for them
Does your attraction to men feel the same as your attraction to women?

This also just reminded me that during high school I was completely unattracted to males, not even in porn. I blamed it on hormones and boys around me being unappealing. But girls were still attractive to me? I eventually "snapped" out of it after getting bullied for it >>311629
Looks like we all have an unhealthy childhood relationship with men in common. However, I'm still able to have normal friendships with men. I just don't feel pure, warm platonic love towards them like I do towards my close female friends.

My question is still is it possible to have a fetish for a gender without having sincere attraction to that gender?

No. 311732

>don't really see them as fully fledged personalities
Fuck, I'm glad other girls feel this way. I do get romantic feelings for men unlike OP, but it's more from a place of…care? As in I see them as glorified sort of pets (for the minority of non-monstrous males, this is). For this reason I also find them socially less threatening since I only value the opinions of other women, thus most of my friends are men. But when I do have a friendship with another woman it's definitely a lot deeper than any I have with men since women often are more emotionally involved and understanding. Men are almost (sometimes endearingly) robotic.

No. 311765

That is so true for me also. All of the male friends I have are because they move some kind of maternal instinct in me, also so does my boyfriend bc I want to protect him and care for him lol.
