I came across the KiwiFarms thread about YaoiGoddessKeale/Kalematsuba yesterday, and I realized something.
In the disgust at MtFs, a lot of GC people seem to overlook that many FtMs are female pedophiles.
I think it's because there's a lot of crossover between fujoshi and shotacon fetishists, who go on to become fakebois, who go on to actually transition.
In Kale's case, they're a huge shotacon who used to draw the stuff in public during their early, early-2000s fujo/fakeboi phase. They ultimately doxxed and stalked an actual 13 year old boy at one point, and talked about almost getting a criminal record over it.

That life with mak girl needs to stop. Why do her parents let her upload that shit? The last two videos she uploaded were especially fetishy.

I know! It's incredibly creepy and I think this video perfectly summarizes her supposedly innocent videos.

I almost barfed when I saw her mother approving of that in one of her videos. I really like ASMR and I don't consider it of sexual nature but so many people have started sexualising it and pandering to the nogf crowd that kids following it seems really disturbing. Social services should be involved in this.

No. 322542

just listen to rainforest sounds or thunderstorms you fucking degenerates.

everyone who likes "ASMR" is contributing to this shit problem. you are all fucking creepy regardless of it being a personal fetish or not because it acts like a fetish does. there is nothing about noises making you feel tingly, that doesn't sound like a fetish. full stop. i don't care how sleepy it makes you, get a new hobby.

No. 322549

It's not our fault that twitch thots saw the cash cow and started doing this weird shit. Everything is getting sexualised these days, the problem is not ASMR, it's the audience.

I was following GentleWhispering before she even reached 100k subs, ASMR was nothing like that. Sure, there were some gf roleplays but nothing remotely on this level.

Why should any of us give up genuine ASMR because freaks taint everything with their degeneracy?

Also, ASMR isn't a hobby. It's something you watch or listen to in the background to fall asleep to. Personally, it helps me with dealing with migraines without having to chug down pills.

Don't talk about something you know nothing of.


> but sometimes I wake up in a cold sweat because the automatic playlist led to a fucking sloppy blowjob mouthsounds video

Ugh I hate when that happens. It's like someone scratching their nails on the blackboard.

No. 322550

Lmao thank you, my ex looooooved asmr and was deeply offended that I called it disgusting and creepy for these same reasons.
>b-b-but my ear tingle
You’re gross and you should feel gross. Especially since your kink is on a public, kid infested platform. Keep your weird shit on red tube or cam sites and I honestly wouldn’t give a fuck. Asmr is so nasty because of where it’s posted, because it’s normalizing softcore sexual content, even if you aren’t wanking to it, you’re part of the problem.

No. 322551

ASMR (the actual response, not the shitshow of a community and videos) is one of those things that's really hard to explain to someone who doesn't experience it, and I get why people whould think it's bullshit, but it really is a legit thing and it's nothing like arousal, goosebumps/shivers or regular relaxation, it's a very distinct feeling. I've gotten the "tingles" (I fucking hate that word) since I was a kid, and even my dad who has never even heard about ASMR videos said that he experiences it too sometimes.

It's just that the whole term has completely lost its meaning and the community has gone off the rails. It's filled with people who have no idea what they're doing or talking about. I remember when the videos used to be solely made by people who experience it, for people who experience it, and you could discuss it without anyone butting in with "oh it's like when you hear a nice sound or someone plays with slime and it's relaxing, haha BRAIN ORGASM amiright, I like listening to hot girls whispering :)))". I wish it would just go back to being an underground thing.

No. 322553

who cares get over yourselves and stop contributing to this shitty cash cow. you guys don't need this shit, you're just acting entitled now.

No. 322554

I don't think it's worth explaining because if they don't experience that sensation, they won't change their opinion.
I wish it went back to being an underground thing too. I see so many top "ASMRtists" that give me zero tingles (I hate using that word too but for the lack of a better one…). I get that it's subjective, some people get tingles from microphone scratching, some people get tingles from water sounds etc., but all I see are just elaborate cosplays with whispering so I'm not even surprised people have a whole different perception of what ASMR is. It became an internet meme and, as long as there's whispering, people call it ASMR.

Getting this spergy over a mostly harmless series of YouTube videos is ridiculous. That child is absolutely being exploited by her idiot mother but for every weird sexual asmr account, there’s an account that is totally silent and focuses on cooking, doesn’t show any face or isn’t sexual in the least. You’re going to tell me that there’s something degenerate about this cooking video just because it’s asmr?

A few sexual weirdos exploiting it for a fetish doesn’t mean the whole genre is ruined. That’s like saying all movies are pornography, or all cosplay is for thots.

No. 322560

I want the ASMR fags to leave. You guys are ruining every thread trying to defend it because like it or not, even regular ASMR is inherently creepy. Even the pseudoscience behind it makes it seem creepy.

Plus, almost every human being experiences it along with arousal.

Just get over yourselves and stop fighting and trying to defend it.

People who defend themselves on anon are literally subhuman.

No. 322564

i agree. if people experience reactions to ASMR good for them, but you guys are acting like it's some kind of oppressed religion or something and getting all weird and defensive when literally no one gives a fuck. besides, i wouldn't doubt that it's somewhat habit forming since it provides instant gratification. shit's weird.

I want a cat but I'm anxious about getting one for some reason. I have owned 2 cats in the past many years ago (one died from stomach cancer, the other my ex took because when we broke up I had an unstable living situation, both were rescues). Both cats were wonderful and affectionate and easy to care for. But the way some people talk about cats they're sooo difficult and destructive so I'm wondering if I just got lucky with them. However, I'm a NEET due to chronic illness and my husband works long hours so I'm pretty lonely during the day, and would like a cat to keep me company.

I guess I've just had really bad luck this year and a lot of things have gone horribly wrong so I'm paranoid about making any changes to my life. My living and money situation is very stable but it's just been such a shitty year in terms of random bad things happening.

lol nah, cats aren't that bad unless you just have to have a special needs one or a breed with a lot of care. Most people who have shit luck with every cat they've ever had tend to just not understand how to deal them. If you don't think it's a good idea to get one, then don't. Maybe try at the beginning of next year to get one if you feel this year isn't a good time. I miss my cats(can't have them where I live yet) and like to go to the local shelter and play with the ones there and it's really nice. You could try that if you aren't sure you're ready yet.

On a completely different note, man I fucking miss homemade food. College food is absolute shit. I know it's not meant to be god-tier chef's cooking but fuck I get sick whenever I eat anything from the dining halls so I end up sick. I cook some stuff on my own but damn it's not the same as the food I get at home. Makes me homesick as all hell.

No. 324621

I had the same concerns as you when I wanted a cat so I looked into adult cats who already had their personalities and stuff laid out. It eased my mind and I ended up with a cuddly calm companion! I wish you luck in adopting if you decide to go through with it anon.

No. 324629

I second this. Plus, kittens can be a lot of work, which doesn’t sound like it would be a good fit considering anon’s current situation. Even a one year old cat would be less of a hassle.

I also recommend going through a small rescue, one where the volunteers work daily with the cats. They’ll have a good idea of the cats’ individual personalities and can help you match up with one that will fit your lifestyle. The one I went to also allows you to bring the cat back guilt free if it doesn’t work out. They just want their kitties to go to homes that are a good fit for everyone involved.

No. 324635

have you considered temporary fostering? maybe there are some rescues in your area that do that, it's usually the smaller ones with limited capacity. that way you can sorta get a feel for the kitty and fully adopt it if you think it would be a good fit. and if not then hey, you are helping a shelter and not committing to having an actual pet

Thank you anons! I think I will go to the local shelter soon and see if they have any nice calm adult cats. There are a few I have my eye on from their website. I think a kitten is definitely more work than I'm capable of with my health the way it is currently.

Kinda the opposite of this, but I but my first bf became a sort of a lolcow on the weeb parts of our country's biggest imageboard a few years after we dated.

you could say the same thing for a lot of posts ITT yet this one was singled out. I mean, a lot of posts here could be classified as a vent.

Its also probably that they were doing something rule breaking before or having this issue somewhere else. I've had to moderate on websites and chatrooms before and that happens a lot, so i don't usually like to question it.

Yeah, I especially miss how much easier it was to just start talking to people in communities and making friends that you'd end up sperging with on MSN messenger. I miss the feeling of browsing a fan community blog and starting to recognize people in the comments by their names/icons, then going to lurk the rest of their custom icons and finding more shit in common. And holy fuck how the times have changed, back then the word "meme" to me meant "kink meme" and nothing more.

I put coconut oil on my face, both as a cleanser and an overnight treatment. It's working pretty well for my skin, in spite of some people avoiding it like the plague and speaking out against it. I feel pretty lucky to be part of the camp that it actually helps, not gonna lie.
I've also started messing around with raw, unrefined shea butter. I don't like the smell, but it's a lot better than any lotion I've ever used. My skin is 100x softer and smoother than before. It's affordable, too. I used to neglect myself hardcore because depression, so getting into skincare (and self care in general) was hard at first, but things are sort of looking up now. Feels nice.

Kind of related but I kinda miss deviant art, it brought out a lot of classic nutters like sonicrocksmysocks, snapesnogger,bleedman,ramy, etc.., I remember getting home from school and just spending hours on deviantart looking for anime art tutorials, those dumb stamps that you could put on your profile and posting shitty art. (Or Posting art I found on my friends MySpace wall) Was a little bit easier to make friends back then, I even met my first online gf on there kek.

I feel like social media is only getting worse and I hate thinking about how the young kids that are heavily exposed to it are going to turn out when they become adults.

Good for you anon, I always like to hear how natural stuff (esp. coconut oil) helps people out.

You can log in as a demo user to explore the communities for now. It's not exactly a clone of Tumblr, the devs set out to combine tumblr with LJ in that you have your own blog and can reblog your blog's content directly into community blogs, so let's say you draw a piece of fanart and post it on your blog, then you can reblog it into the community yourself instead of going through the blog owner to hopefully notice your content, or cross-posting it like back in the day.

One big controversial option they wanna implement is being able to edit/delete your OP and it would reflect on all reblogs too. I think that's a pretty cool option in itself when you think about it in terms old school fandom participation/functionality, let's say you draw a piece of fanart and people start reblogging it right away but you notice it has some mistakes/resolution issues that annoy you and you want to reupload it without scrapping the whole post and losing out on collected comments/faves. But since the devs made that feature for something along the lines of reducing tumblr-esque bullying (if people start to drag you for your problematic post you can either delete it or edit your fanart of a steven universe character to be fatter and darker and it would reflect on everyone's existing reblogs and you could try to get away with pretending it was like that from the start), it's really starting to attract the specials.

Like if the devs hadn't mentioned it as "safe space" Tumblr-inspired feature, I doubt it would've received as much backlash and people coming up with ways to exploit that function for the lulz (like replacing inconspicuous photography/fanart with gore or porn). I understand why they'd want to use Tumblr as a comparison point, but they really should have just marketed this to the old crusty LJ crowd without even mentioning the kind of demographic and site culture tumblr has, cause now the website isn't even out of beta and the scary prognosis is that if the site launches, tumblr retards will flood in and hide under the NO BULLI ;w; function to stir shit among each other for disagreeing on the sexuality of some kid's cartoon character.

No. 325793

i think that's a good option. yes it means people might not be held accountable for stupid shit they say but i think it will do way more harm than good.

im checking it out as a demo user and it seems pretty good so far, i really like the communities. might be a good place for an artist to get in on the ground floor (which is what i mainly use tumblr for) so i might throw some money at it. i think it'll attract snowflakes like all blogging/social media platforms do but it seems like it'll be easier to avoid them. and if the staff is even slightly better than tumblr's it's a vast improvement.

I don't think it's huge but taking a glance at the communities some of them are relatively big, like 600+ users. Your best bet is to check out how active the communities you'd be interested in are. All the ones I like are small or dead so I probably won't join until it gets bigger.

Same and I don't give a fuck neither about any sarcastic language advice nor having an europoor accent.

Everything I know, I learned from voiceless video games like N64 Zelda, songs, some books and internet. Excuse me if my English is not flawless (especially when I have to speak ot when I am mentally exhausted and my lips cannot ketchup with my mind…). For the education I was given, I am doing fucking great and I refuse to be ashamed. As long as we can understand each other, everything's good.

>h-haha I know my French is really bad I'm so sorry please don't bully me
They're completely unable to function outside of their little "expat" (because "immigrant" only applies if you're poor and/or brown I guess) bubbles and I often notice that they fetishise the shit out of us and our culture, especially if they have an SO who is a native, they will parade them around social media like a prized show pony and then blog about their glamorous life abroad

So true. I was shocked that I was treated like some foreigner when I was born and raised in France and have the French nationality compared to white Canadians who came to France to study in my university a few years ago.

When it comes to vocabulary it shouldn't be too hard though, there are a lot of words that are written exactly the same or have the same etymology, the difference is the pronunciation. What's tricky are these words that are written the same way and have the same origin but they don't have the same meaning, but honestly it's nothing compared to learning French grammar but it should just as difficult as if you were learning German because of things that don't exist in English at all.

I used to live in 4ch ~2005-2010, I think this place is better in many ways. There is definitely some negativity around but it's not nearly as damaging as the insanity I've seen on 4ch.

Feel you two, I abandoned my social media and went back to anonymous posting i.e. lolcow. I'm a 4chan oldfag myself as well (since 2004)
and I've been familiar with the board culture for years, but the fascination with lolcow is that it's like 98% female, a demographic other imageboards haven't managed to create. I used to be sort of a "not like other girls" kind of girl, but lolcow definitely helped me get out of that mindset because we have a ton of intelligent, mean, nice, funny etc. girls on this board truly showing you the depths of what other women are thinking when they can share their thoughts anonymously.

Using this thread to post some stuff about the tumblr situation.

>tumblr lied about being taken down from the App Store

>tumblr was taken down due to CP, mostly user submitted CP (minors posting self-CP) and allowing minors to share and view sexual content
>tumblr is NOT simply trying to delete porn-bots, they are deactivating ALL NSFW blogs in order to verify that they don't belong to minors who are distributing any self-CP/ or involved in 18+ activities

So most users will get their blogs back, but the real focus is on underage users making CP of themselves and other illegal activities.

You can always tell when people are faking their voice because of how much it waivers and changes at the beginning and end of a sentence. Most people's voices don't quiver as much as the fake high-pitched ones do, I've been friends with people who have naturally higher-pitched voices, not the anime type though. Even theirs don't waiver and and sound like they're on the verge of tears.

I hope these girls do irreversible damage to their voice box by trying to be a cute little lolicon when they're well in their twenties.

Dunno where else to put this so: ideas for packed lunches to take to work? My bf winds up getting takeout every day and to save some money I want to start packing him lunches. (I live within walking distance of my workplace so I just walk home for lunch and have soup.) I'm not much of a home maker and just started learning to cook so I'm not super creative when it comes to making lunch. So far my only ideas are putting soup or pasta in a thermos.
