I made a big meal to take to work so I wouldn't have to buy lunch st work for the next three days and my family ate it. This sounds selfish but I'm spending my money to feed myself not them, they can all cook if they want to. And they get upset at me being upset with them.

i was in here like. 3 months ago ( i know bc i checked the thread ) bitching about that chad thunderfuck bastard making eyes at my crush . . . well he finally decided to make a move on her at this party; was summarily rejected, according to accounts i've heard from other people, kek

i feel somewhat guilty for taking such pleasure in his displeasure ( which is partially why i'm posting here ) but whatever, he's just another normalfag

me & her haven't gotten any closer but tbh after speaking with her more she turned out to be kind of annoying. like, absolutely bluepilled with the way she goes on about "queer" being a valid umbrella term for lgb stuffs & her
"complications with gender" . . . fucking yikes, you never know with some people

I had a dream I returned to my old job but before I did that I was in a fist fight with my really abusive ex boyfriend. I was doing well until he got on top of my and almost choked me to death, again. Low key hoping I have that dream again but this time I redeem myself.

Found out my grandpa has alzheimers. I'm genuinely contemplating suicide now. Him and grandma raised me and taught me so many beautiful things about life. I can't see my intelligent and lively grandpa lose all his memories and speech. I rather die than see him like that.

I've never met anyone kinder and pure-hearted than my grandma and grandpa. I hate how this world has treated them so badly. I don't want to live in an unfair world like this. It's just too cruel.

I broke up with my abusive bf.
Made a post on fb about it, since it's not like fb doesn't announce my relationship status anyway.

I didn't name drop him, made sure to block him specifically, and it's not like I had to worry about spy drama since he had no friends from being an asshat to people.
He had publicly humiliated me in front of friends I had introduced him to. They already knew the score so it's not like I dropped a surprising bomb. Most friends were really hoping I'd get out asap.
So when I posted the status-I wrote two sentences, no need to spill details-I got a lot of support and feedback. Writing about my relationship problems isn't really something I do (I didn't mention a peep online while I was being abused). Yet numerous friends reached out to me and offered their availability if I needed to talk, some of them even messaged me personally. I got invited out to go do something. Others shared their experiences and related in the comments.
They did the right thing and helped me see positive out of a negative experience, I really appreciated that and it made me feel validated when for the past few months my emotions were being invalidated by an asshole who wanted me to believe I was crazy and awful.
I didn't get the impression that anyone was making fun of me or judging me, because abusive relationships fucking suck period. I wasn't dramatic or superfluous, I was being matter of fact.

Then in comes my mother.
"Anon I saw your status. Don't you think airing your dirty laundry to the world is inappropriate? I mean this would be like me taking out an ad in the paper to lambast my husband."
I explained to her that, no, making a private post consisting of two sentences to my close knit circle of friends that cannot publicly be looked at or shared is not like taking an ad out in the paper.
Also no, posting a two sentence vent referencing a manipulative, unreasonable, mentally ill abuser who treated me horribly is not equivalent to her destroying her husband publicly while they've been married for years and can be trusted to work out a problem privately without fear of abuse.
She completely exaggerated, and exaggerated what I posted to begin with.

Meanwhile her friends and other family members post personal opinions and flame each other on their social media over shit like politics all the time. Won't see her giving them a lecture about what they post on the internet. I almost feel like my mom is envious that I got so much support, because in her generation, women were told it was their fault if they were with abusers. My biological father was an abuser and she hid that fact from me for years, probably because her own mother told her the same shit so now she's hardened. Like she deserved the abuse because she was deceived and didn't know the abuser he was until it was too late to take back her marriage to him and me.
It's so fucked up. I feel sad for her.

Tried offing myself today, i took benadryl to get drowsy and make the whole hanging myself thing easier but i ended up drinking too much and passed out. I was going on and off consciousnesss every hour or so.

People say they regret trying to kill themselves after they fail but i dont, i still want to die, i don't know what to do anymore i feel like its the only way out.

I didn't get into a good university, had to settle with a pretty shitty one. I don't fit in with people my age, going out actually makes me feel worse, like an outsider, my depression and eating disorder are eating me alive.
Why should i be in pain just so people won't be sad for two months at the max? Its very unfair.

Repost from the other thread because i hope someone has something to say

No. 365474

My bf and I both collect figures but for whatever idiot reason I find his collection cringey but mine is more subdued/tolerable or something. I thought at first that I was being sexist but I also think it's that I just find his stuff to be cringey in itself (amiibos, dbz statues, pops) and his whole bedroom comes off as really childish because its full of video games too. I wish I could drop this feeling but the man expects me to want to have sex surrounded by that shit when its just a big messy turn-off. I want to let him enjoy his shit, man. But my stuff is probably cringe to other people too: Marvel figs and character keychains, altho everything has a nice space and I have a fraction of the amount he has because I cant stand my nice things falling unappreciated in the back of a shelf or drawer.

And 60% of his collectables are random impulse buys which annoys me since I try to "curate" my collection so everything kinda goes together and I make sure I really really want and love the stuff I buy to display. But he just sees something related to his interests and immediately drops money on it even when he has no room to put it any more. It's scary.

This is such a weird nonproblem but also not really since it hurts our sex life and tells me that he cant save money. He knows it bothers me but he's a person and allowed to fill his shelves with whatever he wants and I tell him that. But I also can't stand thinking about living with him in the future and him thinking that Nintendo and anime crap looks great in the bedroom. I'm mad at myself for even making this an issue. Fuck's sake, brain, it's not that horrible…

No. 365480

It's not a nonissue if it bothers you, anon.
The fact is that you're maturing and don't want to be surrounded by cartoon figures when you're trying to be intimate. It is weird. It is unusual.
I've spoken with some guys I've dated in the past about home decor and they got offended when I said how I wouldn't want the house to look like an unorganized, incoherent nerd den if I lived with them. How dare I not want Pop figures in the living room. How dare I think game posters and nerd scrolls are tacky.
I wouldn't mind devoting a games room where I and my SO could stash all our shit, but otherwise it's not unreasonable for shared living spaces to be decorated naturally. Fuck manbabies.

I didn't get into any good unis, I was even on the waiting lists for the shittest ones. I go into hysterically depressed about it. Then I ended up going to the best postgrad uni in the world for my subject and even though I finally got what I wanted I had a complete mental breakdown from the pressure I put myself under and the whole things was just as much a bullshit fest as everywhere else on earth. The point is stop letting external forces define your self worth. You don't fit in with people your age or going out SO WHAT, SAME. Just hang around with people older people and do things you genuinely find fun rather than worrying about what you're supposed to be doing, or what society tells you fun or cool looks like.

Bad anxiety and panicked feelings, I know I'll be okay. Things just feel unreal.
going through this slump is rough. I want to go back the support groups I joined, but those only made my thoughts race more. I need motivational groups to join but I know none will be like that, like look at me know I'm only typing about this at my worst moments. Maybe something to distract myself? It's kind of dark outside already so I can't go anywhere, also it's so cold and there's snow on the ground. My house is small. I wish I lived somewhere nicer.
Any anons ever moved to a nicer climate and their quality of life greatly improved? I think this is what I ultimately need, to get out of this part of the country, where it's always gloomy and the only cheap place to live is near a cornfield.

No. 365579

Ehh I don't really think of myself as maturing because I also collect that sort of nerdy stuff, just on a smaller scale. But I woudln't want my toys on display while trying to entertain guests or something, even if they're also nerds. Time and place. But I'm glad someone agrees and doesn't think I'm being totally ridiculous, cause I've never met anyone else who has this issue.

And yeah when I walk into his space I think "manbaby" but he works, cleans, has a standard for himself. It helps me feel more lenient cause he isn't actually a disaster, he just kinda needs to understand that being surrounded by figs isn't exactly hot. And even if our friends like that stuff too, they probably dont wanna stare at it while we chill and have dinner altogether or whatever. I think by the time we live together, he'll start to "get it."

It's always annoying when people try to claim things that don't have anything to do with being feminine or masculine at all, are feminine or masculine, and of course it's almost always done to bring women down "this skin and hair color is feminine" "this race is feminine/masculine" "this eye color is masculine" "playing these instruments are feminine/masculine"

No. 365622

well what do you consider feminine and masculine? considering it's fucking all made up cultural shit anyway.

No. 365630

Usually it's defined by features women mostly have or what women mostly do as being feminine and features men mostly have or men mostly do as being masculine, and of course sexual dimorphism

Like, plump breasts are feminine, a small chin or jaw is feminine, wide shoulders and chest are masculine, etc. People nowadays are trying to claim entire races are feminine or masculine or that skin color is some how related to masculinity or femininity which is retarded

No. 365633

well i think those things go hand in hand with other arbitrary garbage like masculinity means being an aggressive testosterone ball and having no emotions, while women are supposed to be weak, nurturing emotional flowers. but that stuff ebbs and flows through society.

No. 365643

>aggressive testosterone ball and having no emotions
Sadly this seems to be true considering how universally the worst cruelties that happen are instigated by men.

No. 365650

NTA but that's probably a mixture of cultural shit (toxic masculinity) with some semblance of truth to it. Many men are shit because they're allowed to be and told to be, but some are just shit and they want the status quo to be shit like them. But I don't honestly believe all men are shitbags, but more that shitbag men hold the reigns and history agrees with me. In China during the Tang dynasty, women had more rights than women there do now pretty much. But you know, one bad apple spoils the barrel and all that, we just keep wanting to throw bad apples in, instead of throwing them in the fucking trash.

Same anon you're not the only gay in the village who gets affronted with very open talk of hetero sex out of weird companionship with literal no build up/consent to it.
I have gotten used to (some sex talk) with three of my closest friends who have been around for years as something in me wants to ensure they dont live the average hetero sex life as the statistics arent in the womans favour literally ever (she being a perf example mrs 'any woman can cum from penetration!!!'), however alot of het women tend to suddenly just share sexually explicit shit out of some weird womens fellowship as if its expected im straight and will giggle & play along (which tbh it is cause most people do just make the assumption that im straight no matter how much people wanna talk about being open minded kek)
I always act very uncomfortable and sort of make it a point that I find the general conversation strange and off putting without even bringing sexuality into it half the time as I genuinely am uncomfortable having people throw their sex life at me, while I tend to not like anybody talking about their sex life with me out of the blue, theres definently an extra kick in my gut when its heterosexual. (Which no beef with straights Ive just seen nothing but str8 sex on television, movies and even ppl irl dry humping each other drunk af publically erry weekend and the sharing of gnarly sex stories that honestly dont sound appealing what so ever. You end up w a pretty explicit image of it and in turn ive become p disgusted on a deep visceral level lmao, im gay but the culture is what made it revolting)

I had a stupid drunk argument with my husband. He showed me this video and he told me "it's ironic that she's wearing so much makeup and is telling someone else not to wear it…", Then I said to him "how is an adult woman wearing makeup and saying a kid shouldn't dress like an Instagram thot ironic? She can wear as much makeup as she wants because she's grown.". This triggered him and he's starts shouting, he can't seen to understand how an adult woman being a cake face isn't comparable to a child doing it.

Yeah that's why it seemed suspect to me. Then afterwards he says this

He tried to change the goal post and imply he only thought it was funny she's wearing so much makeup and then i asked "why is it funny to you?" He proceeds to get even more triggered and just gaslight and ignore my questions. It's also interesting how he apparently had issue with her wearing makeup when I wear just as much.

We have been married for two years and at this point I don't even bother mentioning anything woman related unless he brings it up first because I know he's gonna say something that pisses me off.

I don't think I'd be very comfortable being the "only" woman he didn't hate. The irrational annoyance over the coat you were wearing reminds me of an anon in the bad parents thread who's dad would tell her she "ruined" his day because she wasn't smiling.

idk. i feel so jaded. like i can’t think of a single person i’d actually want to interact with in any meaningful way right now. i don’t trust anyone’s judgments or opinions lately and everything seems so fucking stupid and shallow. i want to go to sleep for three weeks so i don’t have to deal with human interaction.

my boyfriend told me about how he played strip blackjack with his friend and a girl I’ve been suspicious of. It’s kind of irrational and I know she likes someone else but it makes me uncomfortable because it seems like she’s able to get more intimate with him than me, just because I can’t see him that often and my anxiety around intimacy.

No. 366335

I think sending nudes actually puts women in vulnerable positions, not dominant ones. Men with empathy understand that and wouldn't ask that of you nor expect it.

Secondly, why go after the girl? Your boyfriend is the one who needs to understand boundaries and respect your relationship. If he'll play strip poker with an ex, who knows what else he's capable of unless you have a firm talk.

No. 366338

i mean i wouldnt confront her, because your boyfriend is apparently a huge dumbass that doesn't care about your boundaries or maybe is too autistic to understand boundaries, but i doubt it's the latter. unless youre a gross poly weirdo, your boyfriend had to have known this wouldn't have gone over well. she's a problem but your boyfriend is the bigger problem tbh. HE should have known this is retarded and not right and a no-no in a relationship. don't send nudes also.

I've written and rewritten my story about 5 times now and reading through it makes me feel like such a naive idiot. Red flags galore and I've been ignoring them all for lurve but here goes.

I've been in an LDR for the past 5 months with an older guy…15 years older, and I did not expect to fall in love with him but here I am.
>he lives in a big expensive city, does van life because he has a felony within the last 7 years for fighting and cannot get an apartment without a cosigner but has a great well paying job
>I live in the middle of no where, but I'm not from this area. Quit my high stress retail manager job and was living on savings until last month when I finally got a new, low stress/high pay contracting job that I need to put time into because responsibility
>would have just packed up my car and done van life (I'm into it) with him in the big city were it not the dead of winter, I am not prepared for that
>he just visited me last week, it was wonderful
>up to this point our relationship has been nothing but supportive and loving
>I drop him off at the airport and suddenly he becomes distant. tells me that he had a bad flight and doesn't want to unload his negativity on me, i give him space cuz everyone has those days
>he is distant all week, my gut feels funny but I ignore it as being insecure and justify the distance knowing he's been dealing with frustrating politics at work
>tells me goodnight last night as he always does
>doesn't respond or look at any of my messages all day today, almost 24 hours of silence, I'm getting worried because he always says good morning and fear something bad happened to him
>then he appears and confesses that he met a woman at the airport on his way home and they hung out today, he likes her and wants to see her again. will not give me a straight answer about romantic interest which means yes
>talks about soul crushing loneliness and getting old
>I am direct and honest with my feelings and desires about him and the situation, I do not wish to be manipulative though his vague responses set off all my alarm bells
>directly ask him what he wants with me, he says for me "to be content and secure as always", says he can only focus on the present moment and needs to make sure he's doing the right thing
>then says he needs to go to sleep because this is "mentally taxing"
>he, like all men, isn't getting enough sex. i know that aspect of the ldr bothers him as it does me. I'm horny AF but I think he's worth the wait, he's dynamite in bed, best sex I've ever had
>won't give me a straight answer about what he wants, me or not me, never attempts to reassure me
I'm so upset. I feel so stupid and naive. I feel like he just broke up with me without actually saying it for some rando he met at the airport because fucking is more important than love…or maybe I'm just delusional and there never was love.

I know he's a loser on paper but his humor, thoughtfulness, passions, looks, his whole personality hits all my buttons in the right way so I was willing to overlook the flaws because everyone has made stupid decisions and whether or not you learned something and grew from the failure is the important part (he seems to have)

And I feel absolutely powerless in this because of the outside circumstances. I won't be in an open relationship and he's not the type that can fuck without feelings either so if he wants to pursue her or anyone else, I'm out. But he won't give me an answer on that. I think I'm being set up to be the bad guy or the decider and I'm really sad and heartbroken about it.

Oh. And it's my birthday this week.

This isn't your romantic "butterflies in my stomach" nerves but more "wanting to vomit my guts out and run" anxiety. I'm somewhat interested in him as he seems nice, calm, and non-judgemental, but whenever the possibility of romance or being one-on-one with someone presents itself it makes me absolutely scared and terrified. It's not really a date, atleast I think, because we're only going to meet up and talk about investing, but it still intimidates me a lot.

I fucking hate how much virtue signaling there is in the comic art circles. So many middle-class white girls who create black characters and tranny characters and act like they're basically jesus for including such revolutionary traits, but they never, ever end up using them. The main cast will still be white/white passing, cis and mainly straight. At this point it's almost a meme for comic authors to announce that one of their female characters is a lesbian and has a black girlfriend who they will never introduce in the actual story outside of a few shitty concept sketches to get retweets on Twitter. Or the author being ~body positive~ and drawing one of their characters in a bikini with slightly chubby thighs.

Just make them all white, cis, straight, thin and beautiful if that comes more naturally, you really don't owe anyone anything. You don't HAVE to have all these minorities added to your cast if you don't want to, if anything this sort of stuff makes you look ignorant for fetishizing and burying them. Throwback to all the male authors who made a big noise about being progressive for having a lesbian couple in their comic when it was obviously just made for them to fap at.

I've come to the point where I'm insecure about things that I don't actually hate on myself.
I'm self-conscious about my small chest but don't actually want big breasts. I'm self-conscious about my nose and overall face shape, but have come to identify with it and wouldn't want to lose it. I know I should hate my sad down-turned eyes, but I like how they look on me and others.

It's unclear where I should go from here, it's not like I can change other people's standards. I'm just afraid people will be uncomfortable being my friend because of my appearance (being seen with me, having to look at me, etc.), let alone date me. Yet on my own I'm perfectly fine. I hate it.

This is mostly a vent, but has anyone else dealt with similar feelings? How to get over it, and how to find people who aren't super strict with their standards (especially in dating)?

No. 366487

I feel you on this anon, I would say that often times I would feel the same way about myself even though I know that there isn't wrong with my appearance, I dont think that I'm unattractive but I others might find me so. I sometimes flip-flop between being fine and loving the way I look to the next day hating and not being comfortable, but never going as far as to wanting to have plastic surgery. These feelings might be just small bursts of insecurities (at least that's how I perceive them) so you aren't alone anon. There isn't really a way I deal with it, I just let the day pass and kinda see what I feel like tomorrow, but I guess the best thing to do which I kinda find myself doing whenever I feel like that is just look at the positives of myself (as cliche as that sounds), trying to find something that I may like about myself or try to make myself look attractive with clothing or makeup, at least if it doesn't fool myself I can fool someone else lmao

I don’t get my life sometimes.

As an example…

I just started classes again last week, had completely put it out of mind while on break and didn’t even look up my professors too much for the two classes I’m taking. In fact I was so over it I didn’t even give a damn who I was taking, I just wanted to get my credits and GO.

Of course my classes are starting out nice, I’m actually learning something, the professors are intelligent, and the students aren’t the angsty asshole average joe types that have made so much of my education a rollercoaster ride. I feel relaxed in class and have started opening up more to my professors which I had stopped doing for a while.

I feel like every time I just allow things to ‘happen’ naturally, I always end up being much happier with the end result than all the times I go into a situation with a specific goal in mind. I know it’s probably a personality issue I need to learn to work with, and I feel a lot better now that I’m aware of it.

I am not saying this kind of mentality applies to everyone, but I’m starting to become more open to just letting my life follow its own path and taking everything one day, one moment at a time. I used to have such an intense inferiority complex, I was so hard on myself for making mistakes and I would get so obsessed with a specific idea of how things should be when I was younger. I never gave myself any room to be happy and I never even asked myself what I wanted out of life or even considered what gave me joy.

I know it’s not too late to change as I’m still in my 20’s, but I wish I could go back in time somehow and tell myself when I was 17-21 to be happy, do what interests you as opposed to what sounds good on paper, be open minded and honest about how you really feel…

Oh my god, I can't believe how whiny and victimized younger women are acting about their old boyfriends.

You have at least 50% of the world's approval, congrats!

Just deal with the tiny bit of shame from the very few people who question why it's always, ALWAYS older men/younger women for whom age is just a number, or for whom the situation isn't black and white with 'so many variables'. It's so interesting how those variables never line up to push older women/younger men couples. Nobody here thinks YOU'RE immoral, we think men are and you're just a victim of society constantly telling us we're worthless past 30.

wtf anon you shouldn’t be feeling bad for yourself. i feel bad for your bf, you’re an asshole for doing that. if you can’t handle your alcohol then don’t drink. if your bf kept wanting to fuck other people and you wanted to be exclusive and he was a dick about it, i doubt you’d be feeling sorry for him

I want to write a (fantasy) story that parallels the experience of growing up biracial in a primarily monoracial, non-progressive place, but I myself am not biracial. I try to pay attention to others' experiences and be empathic, but I'd feel presumptuous and shitty taking liberties purely from an outsider's perspective.
Something tells me it could also come off as weird and kind of exploitative just going "Ok biracial ppl, tell me your life experiences for the sake of my art!! :^)", so I'm kind of stuck. Am I just overthinking it? I just want to write something that someone who grew up with a background that isn't really spoken of at length in media (outside of maybe "tragic mulatto" BS) can read and feel understood by.

Maybe don’t sit around feeling sorry for yourself when you’ve been horrible to your bf. It sounds like the apology isn’t gonna be genuine, since you’re framing yourself as a victim, so why bother?

I'm not perpetuating shit, I'm just living my life sorry that I don't base my decisions on what would be better for women in society because guess what, it's not going to make a difference. You calling me a victim and saying I have low self esteem without knowing anything about me is a perfect example of what I said. And sometimes age really is just a number, my mom is 10 years older than my dad and they've been happily married for 28 years, I wonder how you feel about that since the roles are reversed. maybe that's why I feel this way about big age gaps but I think some people are way too stuck up about it. chill

No. 366664

why are you with someone that you aren't compatible with? obviously you're not happy, and if he values monogamy, he'd be better off with someone else that shares his values, and it seems like it'd be the same for you.

lool, stop trying to get offended because like four people in the world think you're being dumb for wanting to date a predatory cryptkeeper and frantically caping for him on LC, meanwhile he's leering at 'barely legal!!!' girls while you guys are at chilis. older men that have a penchant for younger women 'trade up' more than guys with no preference, because as you age you remind them of their own mortality.

No. 366688

Oh my god, be less obtuse. This is not about you specifically, or about your parents. It's about patterns, and how consistently those patterns conveniently benefit men and hurt women overall. If you just quietly had a relationship without bitching nobody would have the chance to shit on you, but of course you have to take personal offense and women picking up on ubiquitous, dangerous and harmful socialization and discussing it here.

No. 366690

Honestly the premise sounds boring and it'll probably turn out to be some tragic mulatto type story anyway. I say this as a biracial person, there are tons of stories and accounts of biracial people who grew up in a majority monoracial area and they all sound like tragic mulatto stories, whether that was the intention or not. I used to seek out these stories to find something to identify with, but once you've read two (perspective from a visible minority & perspective from a biracial who passes for the majority) you've pretty much read them all.

And, the whole half human half orc (or whatever) as a metaphor for biracialism is such a tired trope.

No. 366694

I'm getting really tired of the "woman always like older men" meme. The reasoning behind it is always, "Men mature slower and women want to date a mature man". Men never mature. There's plenty of disgusting old creeps that have the maturity of a 15 year old boy that would just love for people to buy into that meme so they have an excuse to seek out young underage girls. It's just gross. Men don't age well. I don't want to date the average old man: balding, ugly, fat, and wrinkled. Men don't really "mature" so why would I want an ugly older version instead of a fresh-faced man with a tighter body? I just want the meme to die so men can't use it as an excuse for their ephebophilia.

roleplay is also really lame and cringy, just saying, but i can honestly say that there's nothing about being raped, or play-raped, that is a turn on. i truly think like 95% of women that are "into it" wouldn't be into it at all without society shoehorning them into it.

I secretly have some of the impulses that get talked down on here, and I understand why they are wrong (and agree), so I never feel offended when people call them cringy or mentally damaging.

Since my sex drive is basically dead, I don't intend to try and train myself to change or anything. I've accepted that I have a damaged sexuality from self-hatred and past abuse, the same way a raging alcoholic knows they are killing their already damaged liver whenever they binge. I've experienced the effects of pornography addiction, grooming, misogynistic sexual tropes and normalization of all sorts of fucked up shit from a young age, and I don't wish it on anyone. I don't get why everyone with such proclivities can't be the same way.

No matter how you spin it, it isn't healthy or good to crave emotional/physical violence, lmao. It should be shamed, and it should be seen as a problem. The whole "consent" thing is an idiotic buzzword, and would be considered as such in any sane, civilized society.

Yeah nah, it's not.
I had an abortion as a teenager and I went through what was basically overnight labor and then the next day felt like I was getting my insides painfully sucked out of my crotch even with an anesthetic IV in me.
The shitbag boyfriend who got me knocked up got to stay at home and play Runescape while his equally shitbag parents poo pooed me as the slut because their sweet little boy must have been tricked by me into getting knocked up. Then he bitched around school about me "murdering" his child and managed to get the entire school to ostracize and bully me.

Guess what happened the next year? He knocked up a different girl and she was dumb enough to have his child.
He left her, and when he graduated he moved to the other side of the country to become a deadbeat.

Don't trust a man who says he would raise a child alone, 9 times out of 10 they won't step up. Abortion was the best choice of my life.

Fat people need to be fucking stopped. Every day on my bus commute there's at least 3 landwhales that take up 2 seats each. If they take up as much room as 2 people, isn't it only fair that they pay the price of 2 tickets? I also really really wish there was a "fat tax" in America, kind of like the metabo law in Japan. But I know there would be MASSIVE amounts of public outrage if that happened. It would never work here. Americans, especially fatties, are entitled as shit. Just look at the cities who imposed soda taxes and the public outcry that ensued.
As much as I desperately wish that people above, say, 300 lbs got fined for being a drain on society, I know Americans would never allow it. But something needs to be done about obesity in America. More taxes on soda (including diet soda) and fast food, more restaurants with smaller food portions, etc. Another thing I thought of is at my company, if you are a tobacco user you have to either pay an additional cost for medical coverage, or sign up for a free tobacco cessation program. I don't see why there can't be a similar program for extremely overweight people. Either pay a yearly fee or agree to participate in a program to help you lose weight. I don't get why it's socially acceptable to encourage people to stop smoking, but you wouldn't dare to even point out that someone is overweight because youd be demonized as a body shamer. Even just the word "fat" has so much taboo around it. Every fat person I know refers to themselves as "bigger" or "curvy". Please, just say it as it is and stop sugar coating it.

I absolutely agree more needs to be done to tackle obesity, in the UK it's clogging the arteries of our national Healthcare, but just taxing the obese will only exacerbate it. First world obesity is linked to the rise of sedentary lifestyles, poor diet from poverty, and contributory poor health/addiction/stress which are also linked to poverty. Low regulations on food manufacturing allows for "food deserts" where the cheapest food is full of corn syrup, growth hormones and sugar, and poor education impacts people's ability to make informed decisions about what they're consuming.

And this is why whenever an argument about weight comes up on lc and there are anons sperging about how disgiusting women at a normal weight look (udders etc), it makes me immediately think that they're all anas who're projecting their fucked up views on others.
When I had an ed I was so critical of others (and even mean to their faces), but now that I'm somewhat normal again, I started to see that being slightly chubby/curvy is not ugly and that sometimes overweight people are one of the funniest and nicest to be around. Just a couple years ago I wouldn't even give them a chance, because I looked down at them so much.

And it's absolutely sad that there are women who're so sick that they still think like that as adults…

Just recently a friend of mine who's studying teaching told me about this one girl who took away a piece of candy from a first grader and threw it away, just because she's ana and therefore somehow doesn't believe that others should be allowed to eat either.

No. 367044

>i don't get why it's socially acceptable to encourage people to stop smoking, but you wouldn't dare to even point out that someone is overweight

Why do you exaggerate so badly?
Jsyk, a smoker would probably become irritated or give you the same kind of excuses to continue their habit if you randomly pointed it out all the time. I know my parents do. I know you're not friends with any fat women, but they're constantly told how their weight is unappealing by men and the mainstream.
Secondly, weight loss and exercise advertisement is everywhere. I've yet to see outside of Tumblr any media that encourages people to become obese. Most fat people I've seen know they have a problem and have made attempts to reduce their weight. Everyday there's ads for the newest fad diets, exercise machines, and gym memberships.

If you're talking about clothes, who cares? I'd rather a fat person have the avenue to dress nicely than stuff themselves into bad clothing. That's what body positivity was supposed to be about for them-that is being treated with the minimum respect-before people used it as an enabler tool.

we have common friends so we are in the same group and i often see him, but we only have small talks because i'm so fucking shy around him, i never know what to say and spill spaghettis. In my country when you say hello you kiss on the cheeks (very common and you don't have to be close to the person), and everytime we do that i panic and turn completely red, lmao i'm so pathetic. A few weeks ago he added me on snapchat, messaged me first, we talked a bit and then he asked me if i was single because… one of his friends was interested

I dont even know what he thinks about me, he's a very talkative guy, he have fun and talks easily with everyone, but me… but he also added me on snapchat and facebook (even if it's as a friend, i would like him to like me..)

I’m worried I’ve made a mistake having children. The planet is dying, and those that are responsible for it refuse to do anything. I’m worried that my kids will have the responsibility of fixing all the fuckery of their grandparents and great grandparents, while those who fucked everything will be long gone before it drastically impacts their quality of life.

I wish all the baby boomers who care about nothing other than lining their own pockets weren’t allowed in any positions of power so that younger generations can have even a slither of hope of fixing things. And by power I mean CEO’s as well, we NEED more sustainable practices.

no offense but you have made a huge mistake. i dont know that it's even fixable at this point and it's very likely your children will have a very tough road ahead of them. every time environmental scientists come out with reports they admit they have to downplay their actual predictions and they estimate that the majority of released reports are majorly understating in their predictions because they don't want to be accused of moral panic. we're very removed (purposefully) from the actual state of the planet, so it's very easy to deny how dire it is, and many, many people have a vested interest in keeping us so far removed from it until the point where we're caught off guard and are faced fully and irreversibly, with the consequences

Not compelling enough of a reason to cut off access to women in much more dire situations, imo.

We're already pretty much at the point of no return. There's going to be nothing left to fix by the time your kids are old enough to.

To be honest, global warming is the biggest reason I'm not having kids. Already our quality of life is starting to suffer thanks to climate change, I cannot imagine how bad it will be in 20 years.

No. 367415

A lot of postpartum depression actually stems from mothers constant worries over their children dying and overwhelming feelings of guilt, one of the earliest signs of a new mother struggling is that she’ll obsessively watch her baby sleep, which will result in her becoming increasingly sleep deprived. It all goes downhill from there.

No. 367416

agreed. we're already adults and we're most definitely going to still have to suffer the effects of irreversible climate catastrophe within our lifetime. kids born now are going to have even less of the domestic comforts we've been able to have access to and we will be lucky to live out a bit more of our lives with, though I worry for what it'll be like for us being elderly trying to live life comfortably on a dying planet

No, for most it gets worse because of the huge hormonal imbalances after giving birth and then breastfeeding. I had severe antenatal depression but somehow was lucky in that it seemingly just disappeared once I gave birth

I’ll be honest, one of the worst parts about having kids is the lack of support, it takes
more than just one person to raise a kid and it’s very easy to fall into depression like no other when you’re sleep deprived, juggling feelings of motherly guilt, always hungry and have to do the vast majority of child rearing on your own. It also doesn’t help that that infants only ever want their mothers

No. 367422

maybe im the exception but i went through heavy postpartum with my kids and i was less concerned about them dying in their sleep and more focused on if they had died then all my problems financially, socially mentally would just poof away. but that was years ago and have been treated since they are the loves of my life and its a heavy guilt because i felt so crass and had such scary thoughts for months. thats such a small box to put a serious issue

When does it become murder in your opinion? The law gives the ability to terminate pregnancies that are even mere days from the due date.

I have heard the "just a clump of cells" argument countless times, but I don't see how that applies to 8-month babies. So, where's the line? When is it considered murder?

No. 367441

Here’s the thing, just become women have the option to abort late term doesn’t mean that the majority will. It’s something the vast majority would do with a heavy heart and it would weigh on them for the rest of their lives, almost every single late term abortion was a wanted baby - sometimes the kindest thing to do is abort, like when the baby is almost certainly guaranteed to only suffer

serious fetal anomalies that are incompatible with life. like literally life and death for mom and/or baby. especially if baby has a disorder or something that is guaranteed to make them die within the first few weeks of life.

doctors arent handing out late term abortions as easily as fear mongers are wanting people to believe. they are relatively rare. 91% of abortions happened in the first trimester in 2015 and there is no reason that the medical community would flip the switch and and just let someone terminate a pregnancy 33 weeks in because momma is having second thoughts.

No. 367446

These disorders are all evident by 14 weeks into the pregnancy, by the way.

Congenital defects, ASD, mental deficiencies and autoimmune disorders are all ruled out, thusly.

Doctors (PP) are literally booking late-term abortions on the premise of MDD of the to-be-mother.

That's beside the point, I explicitly asked - when does it become murder? How can you reconcile it not being murder, do the means justify the cause? That is my question.

No. 367451

lol no doctor would consider giving an abortion over autism dummy.

now dont get me wrong, i fucking hate the people who give birth to goblins like the hartely hooligans. thats no a life. they should have terminated well within the pregnancy. but you are also disregarding that there can be an outside influence during the pregnancy that can affect the child like a vehicle accident or being in a fire or something else traumatic and nearly fatal.

i dont support termination over stupid shit but there are also factors from conception up to birth that can hurt mom and baby. the uterus isnt some adamantium shell that will save the kid from harm despite mom being hurt or other environmental influences

No. 367452

you realize late term abortions are also dangerous for the mother, right? do you really think so many mothers are going to majorly risk their lives for trivial things?

Kindly read the law and tell me how terminating the pregnancy because of the woman's "burdened mental health" is justifiable.

Because I don't believe anyone would get a third trimester abortion for fun, or get knocked up and specifically hold off abortion on purpose, I would take into consideration their circumstances (mental illness, fetal death, health risk) and not call it murder. Because it's not.

my original post wasn't even about the issues with the law anyway as i have no desire to debate that on lolcow; i was simply stating my disgust at my governor for using this law to bolster support from extremists for his 2020 presidential bid and hastily pushing through something so controversial just so he could have the 'new york did it first' talking point when it comes time to campaign.

Abortion is already legal in the court of law, just like how this bill was passed through a court process. How's that for your appeal to authority? Picking our brains about how murder is defined is just a red herring to distract from the issue as to why a third trimester abortion is actually medically necessary.

Here's your other logical fallacies:
>the slippery slope
Because you think third trimester exceptions will inevitably lead down a slippery slope where any woman can get a late abortion just because, so we shouldn't have it at all.
>appeal to ignorance
Because you don't know why or can't imagine why a woman would seek a third trimester abortion, you can't fathom a scenario where it would be necessary. You even question medically trained professionals in their judgement because you would just find a reason to say no.

No. 367477

I live somewhere that allows abortions up to 24 weeks. And you know what? There isn’t some sort of abortion epidemic here, the only women that get these abortions do so because they need to. And as someone who’s been pregnant twice, a lot can happen up until 24 weeks that ruin the quality of your unborn child’s life - yeah, you can be told whether or not you’re at higher risk of neurological issues at 14 weeks, but extra tests to find out for sure push you further into the pregnancy, and morphology scans - the scan where they can catch many more life ruining issues - isn’t don’t until after 18 weeks.

No. 367481

not really. he was speaking about a failed abortion (so likely a child that is going to be disabled) and in the case of an infant that's not really viable without intervention. as another anon said, it is pretty similar to whether or not someone wants to continue keeping someone alive that is unable to survive without life support and/or extreme intervention.

the facts are these: any women seeking an abortion as late as 8 months is essentially going to have to go through induced labor. no woman is going to go through 8 months of difficult pregnancy and now a risky painful birth just to "get rid of" their fetus at the last possible minute. that isn't how it works. no one is doing that. even the women who hypothetically would be seeking one out for mental health reasons would need to be a serious danger to herself for that to be considered.

because surprise, a lot of premature births survive at the 8 month mark. so no one is pressing an eject early button on a healthy pregnancy. these are pregnancies that are already no longer viable, who were discovered tragically at a late stage to have serious defects. you, a sick fuck, would rather a woman be forced to look visibly pregnant while hosting a festering dying decaying fetus in her stomach while having to endure all the comments and questions a pregnant woman gets. that sounds like torture to me.

She adds that her neighbor will be going out of town and will need a dog sitter for the weekend too. I say of course I can watch that dog too, and now I'm like, SO anxious and wrapped up in how little I'll be paid. I'm going to ask the neighbor for $20 a day, which is still extremely cheap, but I can't be charging her more/the same amount if I'm not going to be physically sleeping in her house.

I want to come clean and be like "so I fucked up and misspoke, of course I'll be happy to do it for $25 this time since that's what we agreed upon, but in the future I'm going to ask for probably $40 a night" (still don't think I deserve more than that.)

My eyes are super dry, i have tinnitus, and i feel dizzy and weird sometimes when i'm out too. I wish i could sue my psychiatrist for putting me on such a strong dangerous drug that was supposed to help with my anxiety but once i stopped taking it my anxiety became so bad I didn't leave my house for about a year. I no longer take any medication for my mental illnesses. I no longer trust doctors or drugs.

lol some guy tried to post on facebook on how there wasn't a difference between sexual assault and rape. That is ridiculous. I was sexually assaulted and I'm so glad the guy didn't rape me. It's not really the same thing.

Also, I think that even though I was sexually assaulted I don't think victims are always correct and never lie. But I feel like some people think if I was raped instead of sexually assaulted, I would be singing a different tune. Yeah maybe I would, because being raped is definitely worse than other forms of assault.

Also I feel like this guy is a virgin kind of guy who has little or no experience with women. I feel like the fact that he posts this kind of shit is funny and bs. lmao

I'm very unhappy with a lot of my life. My work feels dead-end and meaningless. I'm in school to get a Masters (a STEM major), but I don't honestly think it will help me all that much. Can't get a better job without experience, can't get experience without a job. Can't move, just bought a house, but also don't want to move and leave friends and family behind.

I genuinely think I might have ADD as I can't concentrate on anything. Studying? Mind is all over the place on anything but the book. Playing computer games? Also playing a phone game. Watching TV? Also playing a game. Work? Mind wanders, can't focus. I'm considering seeing a doctor about it, but I worry about taking any medications because of addiction issues in my family. I also have a very, very difficult time expressing my feelings to people - I just can't do it (anonymous strangers on the internet aside). Even if there's a serious issue, I have to psych myself up for hours to get even a piece of it out.

Getting fed up with some of my best friends attitudes. These people are supposed to be my best friends, but at the same time also think the worst of me, and I think it's coming from the one I've been friends with the longest. Always assumes I must be trying to outdo her in every aspect, constantly trying to compete with me when I do literally nothing but exist. she has to try to make me feel bad about everything - my weight (we're the same clothing size (though I'm a bit taller)), my house (similar sizes), vacations I go on. Complains about literally everything. Nothing is ever good enough. Everything she doesn't like is stupid and she doesn't get why anyone would like it. She doesn't like it, so you shouldn't care about it, it's dumb. Then, after being critical of everything and arguing about everything (including little things like exact times and which way is better to go when driving even though it's literally a .5 km difference), gets upset that a lot of people think she's a bitch or that she complains to much. Wants to be told that she's not being a bitch or that she doesn't complain too much, but does literally nothing to change people's perception. If everyone thinks you're too bitchy and you don't like that…maybe stop being bitchy? It's not everyone else reading you wrong that's the problem, it's you being constantly combative and constantly complaining. Complains everyone likes me better. Maybe because I'm nicer? it's really not a hard concept. I tried telling her once years ago that she complains too much, and she harps on it too this day like I tore down her entire character. It was one comment because she was complaining, again, about something I like about how it's stupid and she doesn't get why people like it. I consider her to be my best friend, but I'm just getting so sick of the constant complaining and constant competitions and constant comments about my appearance. I'm average looking and I'm not skinny by any means. Not fat, but certainly not skinny. My other best friend is constantly "woe is me", constantly seeking attention, constantly jumping into relationships ASAP because she can't stand being alone. Gets hit on by tons of guys on apps, but then complains "I'm fat and ugly and no one wants to date me". Constantly fishing for compliments. Always asking for advice on what to do, but does exactly what everyone says not to do. Suicide baits whenever a relationship ends.

I can at least say I'm very happy in my long-term relationship. My partner is caring, thoughtful and supportive. Our personalities mesh perfectly, we have similar interests but are also fine with spending time with other people. I can at least say I have no complaints there.

This is a completely valid concern, and you greentext it so flippantly. Not everyone has a social safety net, ie. friends or family, who they can fall back on if they want to move away from an abuser or someone who they don't love anymore.
Did you know economic hardship is one of the primary reasons why people don't leave toxic relationships?
It's actually extremely difficult for many women to save up enough money to afford a move, whether that's for a new deposit + however many month's rent most places will ask for, to the cost of moving itself.

He raped you.
Whatever you gotta do financially to afford a place of your own or with a new roommate, do it. You need to get out asap. Being raped is going to do worse for you mentally and socially if you continue to stay with this man than it would if you went your own way and wound up alone.
He knows he has power over you which is why he did it. Keep a healthy distance while trying to figure a way out of this, for your own sake.

Recently, I accidentally ended up befriending someone in one of my courses who turned out to be a shitty anime fan. For the record, I tend to stay quiet about liking anime because it's just plain embarrassing and I don't want to attract unpleasant people. This kid turned out to be one of the bad ones, he had the works; Did not know how to shut-up or control the volume of his loud ass voice, knew everything about everything, would stare at me or my chest, had literal hentai as a wallpaper on his phone (I didn't notice until he put his phone down next to me), would always convince me to watch/subscribe to pewdiepie so he could be #1 on YouTube, and make shitty sexual jokes. In his defense, he was only 18 but the guy drove me nuts and I genuinely hope he grows out of it. (I know some weebs unfortunately don't)

I know this post is very weeaboostories-esque but it made me realize normies are honestly a refreshing break from insufferable anime fans like this.
I know anime is a magnet for psychos and autists but the more time I spend in this community, the more I want more normal friends.
It's also incredibly hard to find weebs to befriend who aren't completely batshit and can function like proper adults.

Another vent:
I'm so fucking happy I've finally managed to muster up the nerve to cut off my psycho "best friend" after years of friendship. You bet she was an insane weeb too.
She bullied me a lot in Jr.High and in Highschool and would talk shit about me to her boyfriends. The only reason I would take the constant insults was so I wouldn't be alone.
Your social life is the only thing that matters during that time and I didn't want to be seen as an outcast weirdo with no friends. Now that I'm outta that mess and in college, it feels really good to be furthering my education and not have to worry about her crazy judgmental ass. I'm grateful to have a great family and a boyfriend that loves me very much to support me.
While she was my only real close friend, I don't feel any regret letting her go. She dropped out of college last year, still doesn't know how to drive, her art hasn't improved at all, and can't live without male attention. I wonder if that'll change in a few years but I'm so glad I won't be apart of it.

just because you make a compromise doesn't mean it's healthy for either of you. sounds like you're incompatible but you're staying with him out of convenience. just because you love him doesn't mean he's right for you and it's unfair to him as well as yourself to force a relationship neither of you will be totally satisfied with. you can always find love with other people who share your kink

And immature people in general. I know I was an extremely, extremely immature 19 year old and I know now that I annoyed many people. I didn't really mellow out until 23 and that's only bc I swapped out for a more withdrawn edgelord personality until I figured it's better to be a balanced normie with some weeb interests.
What made progress slower is that nobody really said anything constructive or even mentioned that I was a shit, they all just talked behind my back so if I did get wind of something they criticized, I wrote it off as them being the shitty ones when really I could've looked at it as a half-truth.

I slept with this guy, as in we just slept in the same bed. I was asleep for 6 hours and the time before that he expressed that he was very horny. I turned everything down of course and just wanted to sleep. The next morning when I went home something wrong was felt in my underwear and I smelled it ( gross sorry ) and it smelled like cum 100%.

I live in a mental hospital of sorts. Been here almost 2 years now. Have struggled to keep a job and deal with my mental illness at the same time, so this is where I ended up. Most of the people here are men in their late 30s and beyond. Of course this means I get sexually harassed on a daily basis. I can't leave my room to get a cup of ice without having some creep trying to grab me, stare at me, or make some nasty ass comment. I've stopped eating in the cafeteria entirely because I just can't deal with it anymore. I've told the people that work here about it multiple times but they don't give a fuck. Maybe talk to the guy if it gets real bad, but they always go right back to bothering me eventually. So goddamn sick of this hellhole. Have to spend pretty much every spare bit of cash I can get on food to eat in my room so I can avoid the worst of the harassment. My clothes are falling apart. I have 0 privacy because my roommate is in here sleeping/laying down 23 hours a day. Don't know how much longer I can deal with this.

I was raised with some toxic beliefs about art. I had a seriously bright future at 17. I was getting great job offers, exploding followings, and being recognized by my inspirations. Then I turned 18. And my family said that’s when I close the doors to art. So for the next 4 years all I studied was engineering. In fact, I felt so guilty whenever I had the urge to draw, I would cut and punch myself to punish myself for thinking about drawing, and take lots of Xanax to try to forget the fact that “this isn’t who I am anymore” I ended up in the psych ward 4 times, and each time I would draw in my journals (the one I had gave everyone a journal) and I would have it filled up with drawings at the end of the week. “Well, it’s impossible to study in here so I may as well draw!” Is it any wonder I left in a cheery mood each time? Whenever there was studying to be done - and there always was because you can always study more - I was absolutely forbidden to draw. By the time I dropped out, I was drawing a fuckton and spent the summer hating myself for not being able to contain the urge to draw. Of course by then I had given up my online profiles because it was too painful to look back. To this day I wonder “what could’ve been” I went through a lot of therapy trying to get rid of the guilt and regret.
Anyway I recently picked it up again because the only way I quell my guilt about dropping out just to draw more is: “I’ll die! I’ll literally die!” I had a bout with severe heart problems that lead to multiple ambulance calls, and finally when I drew it suddenly disappeared. Thanks for reading my blog. Whenever I see people my age being explosively successful, I can’t help but feel pain imagining where I had been if I had just given in to the urge to draw instead of hitting my head against the wall trying to be the perfect engineer.

I have always had issues with disturbed sleep but lately it's really ratcheted up to a new level of suck. I will go to bed and fall asleep pretty quick, get 2-3 hours of sleep, then wake up and lie awake until my husband gets up for work at 8am, then go back to sleep for another 2-3 hours and get up around noon. I don't know why I am waking up, but I know part of the reason I stay awake is because my throat feels all gross and mucus-y and I'm constantly swallowing to get rid of it until I feel nauseous. Sometimes I take an anti-histamine and it helps a little, but usually it doesn't have an effect.

I saw a man dying yesterday and it's been haunting me since.

It was my first day at my new job, everything was going already pretty bad when we hear a lady calling for help, shrieking, basically.

We run to see that her husband (they were an old couple) had fallen and wasn't breathing properly. A lot of people that also heard her screams went to help her but none of us knew how to first aid someone.

We called the police and an ambulance, of course, but they took more than 15 minutes or so to arrive, and it was too late. I rushed to look up for first aid instructions on the internet as well but it was also too late.

I will never forget how his tongue and ears (and whole face, honestly) were a vivid purple, how it was to touch a body that wasn't breathing anymore, and the wife's screaming "please wake up, love". Writing this already makes me cry and I didn't even know them, but it's just so sad and awful to see other human losing their life in front of you.

Today, as I was going to work, it was raining. The streets are shit where I live. An old women leaned to hold on to me to cross the street for a bit, them let me go, but I tried to keep an eye on her to make sure if she would make it. I couldn't forget about the old man and how he died because he fell.

anxiety is so bad today. i thought yesterday was bad, but i just feel really on edge and like i'm dreaming. i'm just trying to feel comfortable with the feeling and not fight it away, but it's so difficult. i can't wait to go to therapy tomorrow.
dissociation is tough. i'm self-talking my way through it, reminding myself i've been doing really good and to get better i'm gonna have to go through over some hills. but there's just moments that feel like i'm suffocating. i just wanna feel grounded. i've been going to therapy for 3 weeks now, so i know i'm doing really well, i need to remind myself not to push myself too hard. but idk what else to do when i'm so uncomfortable.

I just ended an 8 month long affair with a married man
>inb4 stupid anon why would you do that
I never expected it to happen but it just did, I fell in love and hard. I’ve never cheated on any of my partners before and only like two of my friends know about it but I’m really mourning the loss. I can’t see my therapist anymore because I got laid off 2 months ago so I don’t have insurance and is so hard because I’ve blocked him on everything but I haven’t blocked his number yet so I keep seeing all of his texts and calls. I ended it a few days ago because it wasn’t going anywhere and I need to move on with my life and I know I’m an idiot it’s just hard because of how much I hate myself for falling trap to it and believing that he would leave for me after all the shit I’ve ever thought about women who believe this.

This really hot dude picked up on a conversation with me from when I was looking to date and he's so yummy, dark long hair, great features, good beard, very well-built, easy-going and friendly personally, lots of shared interests. We got along so well messaging but he's also too pushy and intense for me right now. The timing is off, my life is a nightmare currently and we're looking for slightly different things and I feel a compromise would be a bad idea. He reminded me how bad I would like to have sex and fall in love again but I have to put my well-being first and accept that it's not in it for me any time soon.

I recently got diagnosed with autism and I agree about the "autists are superior to neurotypicals" people, they're absolutely insane. When I started suspecting I had autism and researching it I encountered several documentaries and articles trying to pass off autism as "the next step in evolution" and something that makes you more creative, smart and interesting, which is laughably stupid.

I might be wrong but I think this view is more common in male autists. Autistic women still don't get diagnosed nearly as much because they learn how to "mask" and socialise like non-autistic people. Autistic men, on the other hand, usually get diagnosed very early in life and often get the "my autistic boy is a perfect genius and shouldn't try to socialise normally~" treatment from their mother.

It actually depressed me when I traveled there and I wasn't really feeling any specific way.
In every direction I turned in Tokyo there were endless buildings and people. Yet I felt so isolated, like my foreigner status made me untouchable except in touristy areas where people would just exploit gaijin for wacky interviews or money for services. I'll just say that cities in Japan really highlight how small an individual is, and not in a good way.

My boyfriend and I haven’t had sex in over a month. He has tried to initiate one time in this time period and it was when he was incredibly drunk and we were at his mom’s house! I’m so fucking frustrated and I’m scared to bring it up because we had the same issue last year and according to him my bringing it up was making him feel guilty so he wasn’t interested. We were incredibly sexually active for the first year and a half of our relationship and I’ve been clear since the get go that I have a high sex drive. He was also on the same page until Last January when he just decided he wasn’t interested in it for 4 months and then everything went back to normal. Now it’s happening all over again and I can’t say shit because I don’t want to make the problem worse.

Jumping on this for my related vent: Autistic women are fine, I've had lots of them as friends, it comes up but whatever, people are weird. Autistic men are another story.

I work for a fabric store; all of my coworkers are women but the store manager is a man. Up until about a month ago I thought he was the most non-confrontational and approachable manager I've ever had. He's never breathed down my neck or micromanaged me, not to mention, he's respected my knowledge for our products/sewing in general, and my experience with the business of retail.

I was comfortable until about a couple of months ago. Now he regularly comments on my appearance. I was hired last May, when I was overweight, the store's air conditioning didn't work, so I didn't bother with makeup and just wore my boyfriend's baggy shirts. Now I fit back into my skinny jeans and feel comfortable wearing makeup without it sweating down my face.

He's made comments like how I need a sun lamp because I'm so pale and would better with a tan. He points out when I wear different shoes or a new shirt. He always asks about my hair color. Most of this probably sounds innocuous, until a coworker told me how when he was initially hired, several women quit because he hit on them or made them uncomfortable. Recently, when I went to the bathroom, he was in there replacing the paper towel rolls, and I thought he would promptly leave, but I stood in a stall for a couple of minutes before he left. Last week he asked if my boyfriend and I go to car shows, and I don't remember ever talking to him about my boyfriend, so it seemed like a weird way to gauge if I was single or not. He told me I looked like a "rockabilly pin-up girl."

I thought I was just being paranoid until I just now looked him up on Facebook a few hours ago. His Pinterest is publicly linked to his account (we are not Friends), and his Pinterest account has a folder named "hot girls." They have the same hair color as me, tattoos like me, and dress like me.

I love my job. None of this is enough to claim sexual assault. Someone tell me I'm just being paranoid and to get over it.

the only satisfaction i got from that was when i stopped in a drug store years later and saw one of the hr reps working as their cashier. honestly i wanted to spit in her face.

You lost weight and now he thinks he can groom you further. That's why he does things like suggest you tan, everything he says is an attempt to coax you into the image of a woman he wants. And once he thinks you get into habit to his taste, he'll chase after you too.

He just didn't before because you were overweight and didn't give the impression that you cared what other people thought. Now he's all over you like flies on shit, just like the women before.

I live with my mother (inb4 leech : I help her out financially when I can and it is considered normal in my culture to live with your parents untill you have an actual reason to move out).
Recently I havent being going out as much (unless its for college or obligations) and my mother is bugging me to go out party and see friends and find a boyfriend etc… and it's easy for her to say that because when she was my age she was really rich (like she could pay a room in a 5 star hotel if she wanted to sleep with a guy, etc) while I'm completely broke. When she's abroad on business trips, I actually go out quite a lot because I put myself in a particular "mood" that hypes me up to be social. I listen to specific music, etc… But while she's here, thats much harder to do. She kind of acts like I'm a teenager in certain aspects, ie: if she happens to find out I'm into a guy she will ask me deets as if she was my friend, asks me to show pics (not in a controling way… just in a "trying to be your bestie" way), she will try to cuddle all the time, etc.

I know this is such a 1st world problem, it's a non-issue and I know I'm lucky in a lot of aspects but idk… It's kinda annoying.

That's just one of many similar instances but I don't have the energy right now to go into it.
I need to ask though, how did you react to it? I moved since then but I found out she got my address from a mutual acquaintance who didn't realize Im not talking to her anymore and it really creeps me the fuck out that she knows where I live.

That kinda thing usually stops happening when people grow up but i still cant get male friends to use a coaster or napkin lmfao.

The thing is that some people insist that they're your close bff and pass your boundaries based on how they see the friendship. Its like a stranger hugging you.

This same friend would also lie in my bed and make it smell bad (shes fat) while I have a chair in the room, leave her trash on my desk when she'd leave, and leave the toilet lid up after I told her to stop several times. Her habits built up on my sperg about the showing up incident.

what can life give me that's better than just not existing at this point? is happiness or comfort even worth it? i just don't know anymore.

You need to see a therapist or a counselor who specializes in CBT. They can help you change your thinking patterns so you don't go to the absolute worst right away. I know a lot of people usually only go when they have unbearable anxiety or depression, but they help for situations like yours.

seriously. when I was very suicidal years ago my therapist told me to go to the ER so I did. I felt like a total idiot. they admitted me then kept sending people in asking "are you sure youre REALLY suicidal anon or just depressed?" basically since I didn't have an active plan to kill myself they didn't want me there. eventually told them I would be fine and they discharged me.

No. 369861

Why would you think the hospital was appropriate? Hospitals only want to deal with people who pose an immediate threat to themselves and to others like having a psychotic break, or if they're injured from an attempt already. Emergencies, not suicidal ideations from someone who actually wants to live.
If you were so obviously ill you would've met criteria to be involuntarily sectioned, and being sectioned in a hospital actually isn't the best thing for someone's mental health. It's where they strip you of your rights including the ability to leave because they believe you're too ill to understand or seek proper treatment for yourself. So they hold you and surveil you until they're satisfied that you're mentally competent enough or in someone else's care to be set loose. Oh, and then the lovely ER bill later.

I get that hospital workers can be power tripping pricks, but that's not where you need to be. Try a behavioral therapist who can teach you tools and methods to cope with obstacles in your life

Im so fucking stressed. I got an invitation to fill out a background check packet for a job I never thought would respond to me and its basically a dream job for me, but they needed a lot of information I couldn't answer. Phone numbers for past places I've lived, etc etc. I probably looked like a trashy bumbling buffoon to the HR woman interviewing me as I told her 'That place was sold off, that place was a rats nest I lived in for a month'. Then it came to my neighbors…oh man. They didn't want to be involved at all in the background check, but the packet demanded I at least try and convince them to do it. I googled for advice on this but a lot of the responses were simply 'Why would they be like that' boomer-tier advice, like they've never lived in the ghetto where if you even mention 'cop' people run. I'm so mad at myself for ever leaving my small town and trying to live in the city, I could've done this job much easier back home. Moving around big cities makes you look like a freak in the eyes of hiring managers.

I’m by no means thin, but my midwife was very fixated on my weight during my appointment, primarily on where I carry it and how easy it will be to lose once I give birth. Which wasn’t too much of an issue as I’m aware it negatively impacts my health, but it became apparent that she was coming from a purely visual standpoint as she ignored the majority of my pregnancy weight gain being water+baby and said ‘you carry a lot for your weight in your midsection, huh’ in a condescending way - I’m fucking pregnant, literally every single woman in the waiting room looked liked a bowling ball??

This week has been really tough dealing with such high anxiety and uncertainty, trying to be comfortable with the uncomfortable. I wish for no one to go through what I'm going through, but I understand this isn't a unique experience.

I feel like you might be my ex lmao, but in the case you aren't, we broke up mainly because of his parents. My ex's mother (who divorced my ex's dad over 10 years ago) basically "moved back in" with her ex-husband and my ex because she is a psychotic borderline personality disordered freak.

The first day I arrived she was planted on the couch (she slept in the living room/kitchen area) and for nine months she was LITERALLY home 24/7 even though her original home where she stayed with her mother was a 5 minute walk away.

Any time my ex and I would go out, she'd ask to come and throw a tantrum if she couldn't. We couldn't cook without her being there, we couldn't talk without her being there, we couldn't go outside without her phoning him, couldn't even be alone in my ex's room because she would constantly call for him from downstairs about the stupidest shit.
No matter what my ex said to her, she just refused to leave and I couldn't handle it anymore. Ex and I had a huge blowout fight where his parents came up into our room to shout and scream at me and called me crazy in broken English. After that I knew I just had to leave.
When you break up due to things out of your control it's extremely hard to get over it or understand it.
Plus I sold all of my shit to go there and had to leave early so I'm temporarily homeless until I find an apartment.
I am pretty sure I'm done with relationships in my life. When I think of all the energy I invested into these men and their fucked up families and how I could have spent that energy solely on myself, it's so shameful and depressing. Why did I wait this long to realize it?

My brother-in-law's girlfriend does this and it always winds me up. She acts so vapid that it's difficult to maintain a conversation with her.

I'm not going to defend the midwife what she did was unprofessional. Criticizing a woman's appearance when she's pregnant is a nasty thing to do because they're already feeling insecure about how their body is changing. Maybe what she was trying to say is that carrying more weight around your middle can be a risk factor for gestational diabetes. Unless she does actually mention this I wouldn't worry about it. I put on so much weight when I was pregnant my husband used to call me "chubs" and tell me that I looked like a buddha statue.

That’s the thing, I wouldn’t have taken it to heart if it was from a place of concern, but the majority of my weight is by no means in my midsection and very obviously so.

I’m starting to see suicide in a new light. It started around 5 years ago when i confronted an online friend about his suicidal thoughts. He said all he wanted was a not selfish reason to keep living. A genuine reason that didnt involve other people. His school life, work life, personal life was awful and it just didnt look like it was getting better for him and he often spoke about suicide,I knew telling him “things get better” or whatever would just go through one ear and out the other. He would often say death was inevitable and how he just wanted to have the choice to choose how to die - and this just left younger me flabbergasted. I was sure there had to be a reason but at that moment i didnt know how to asnwer him.

I haven’t spoken to him since, so i don’t know where he could be, but i still think about the reasons why someone shouldn’t commit suicide. A reason that wasn’t cheesy or selfish. One that didn’t involve other people (“oh anon your mom would be so sad.”) a genuine reason for someone to continue to live. But not gonna lie, i don’t think i’ve found one reason that wasnt selfish or revolved other people than the depressed.

>things get better

Will they? Or is it just the hope that it gets better?

>you’re such a (positive adjective) you deserve more than this

They could be a saint but the world is still cruel

>X would miss u

>don’t do this to your friends and family
>it’s so selfish

It’s also selfish to make someone live miserably just so someone else could be happy.

the older i get the more i start to think that there really isn’t a reason to why someone shouldnt commit suicide. I know it sounds dumb because death is awful, but think about it. Do you think someone that’s given up on life honestly gives a fuck anymore? Should someone have the right to choose how and when they want to die? Please help me understand because i just keep thinking about this friend and what he said especially as of late and i’m starting to think he may have had a point and it’s really been fucking with me recently

I remember there was this woman a while back that had interviewed suicide attempt survivors that jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge, it was a pretty decent sample size too. There was one thing consistent with almost all of their stories - about two thirds of the way down they regretted their decision. They realised that all those problems that seemed to be never ending and impossible, could actually be solved. I’d say that’s a reason that doesn’t involve other people, but then again not everyone regretted jumping

>Do you think someone that’s given up on life honestly gives a fuck anymore?

That's the thing though, it really depends if one values ANYTHING in the world at all–including themselves–in order to carry on.
I don't want to die because I know it's finite. I'd never get to eat another delicious meal, hear a song that makes me happy, create something that gives me a sense of pride, or see how the world progresses (or not) I'm forever salty that I won't be around during space age for the common person and other technology.
None of those reasons have anything to do with living for someone else, they're things and feelings that I as an individual values and can get satisfaction from and give me a sense of purpose.

For some people it's compelling, for others it's not. If someone really wants to go then they'll find a way. However, it seems obvious to me that people who openly discuss their suicidal thoughts often want someone to say or do something that pulls themselves from it.

I've read it too, it's horrifying.

Your parents will be forever destroyed, they will never get over it, your friends and everyone around you will be traumatized for life.

Honestly the whole "think of everyone else" mindset is selfish as well. It's implying our lives aren't our own and we have to keep living them just because someone else will be sad. What do you say to people who have incurable diseases that want to die? They have to suffer physically just because someone else will have a moment of grief that they can eventually move on from?

Who ever argued that? I'm sick and tired of people romanticizing suicide to be some noble deed and encouraged as a legitimate way to escape ~your miserable life~ because you've been living as a hikki for 4 years or your boyfriend left you. The people who want you to stay alive for their sanity's sake are selfish, but so is killing yourself. However staying alive can help you fix your problems, killing yourself transmits your problems to other people. If that's not selfish, I don't know what is.

Having met parents of young people who committed suicide, they are fucked up for life. It's one thing to outlive your children when they die in an accident or because of a terminal illness, but by suicide? That absolutely destroys the people who care about you. You spend the remainder of your life thinking what you did wrong, what could've you done to save them, should you kill yourself to "be together again".

As someone who’s dealt with a family member committing suicide, people don’t understand how much it affects a family. To be honest, my family was completely destroyed by it and there’s no way it’ll ever be the same. Suicide isn’t like other deaths, you can’t grieve properly or just “get over it eventually” because no one, not friends or family members, want to talk about suicide, it’s isolating. I understand that people who commit suicide feel it’s their only way out of their suffering, but when they kill themselves their suffering becomes the suffering of their family and friends. I wonder if the anons here arguing it’s selfish to want suicidal people to think about other people before they kill themselves have ever personally experienced someone close to them committing suicide. In the end it’s stupid to argue who’s the selfish one when it comes to suicide because everyone is selfish.

In a way by writing this they kind of expect people to tell them not to do it. But seeing as this is an anonymous board, we can never know whether they actually pulled through with it or not. And it does make you feel guilty, because it means that we might have failed in our attempts to stop that person.

It might be selfish to tell people to stay alive for the sake of their loved ones, but it's also extremely selfish to not give a fuck about what happens with them after your death and it also is attention-whorish to burden strangers with the situation I explained above.
It kind of reminds me of a friend I had who always told us that she's going to selfharm, but in the end more or less only wanted people to beg her to please not to do it.

Unless you're extremely ill, or let's say a childwife trapped in some 3rd world country, I think there's always a way up. If you're so down, that you even think about suicide, then everything that's still about to come in your life at least can't be any worse.

Living for others when you hate yourself is almost impossible and seems so shallow. What usually ends up happening is people say "I'll just wait for my family to naturally pass so I can die".

I'm sure there are suicidal people who feel spite or apathy towards their family but the majority truly believe their loved ones were going to be happier without them. (at least that's what I encountered in rehab/group).

You are not morally obliged to keep other people you don't even know alive and if people can't vent about wanting to end their pain online in an anonymous forum where the fuck can they do it?
Like for fuck sake anon, life can be very hard and people may not even have loved ones at all, you can't just go comparing everything to child brides, there will always be people having it worse.

>if people can't vent about wanting to end their pain online in an anonymous forum where the fuck can they do it?
I never said people shouldn't be allowed to vent about feeling suicidal - I have done so myself.
I was talking about the people who simply announce "This evening I'm going to jump."
I guess I'm just too sensitive but I can't help it. Reading this and not knowing keeps me up at night.

The reason I mentioned child brides is because they pretty much have zero chances of ever leading a better life. Contrary to people with depression in better countries, they at least have the possibily of getting better again. So, I'm not talking about who has it worse, I'm taking about the chances of there being any improvement.

No. 370812

>if people can't vent about wanting to end their pain online in an anonymous forum where the fuck can they do it?
A therapist or someone professionally equipped to help.

>I absolutely hate when people come here to announce that they're going to kill themselves.
Same. It's inherently manipulative because they know most of us here are thoughtful and will care enough to respond. Notice how they'll vent here and not some other anonymous source like 4chan where assholes who negatively commiserate would actually tell them to do it. And not nicely either.
Also lately, these suicide anons have been nasty to farmers who dare tell them it's a bad idea for any reason.
We're like those "friends" that suicide anons text at 2am saying how they want to kill themselves, for the umpteenth time, and so we stay up freaking out and being concerned while trying to talk them down from it when all we're doing is giving an attention supply. We're not "friends," we're being used like tools.

No. 370815

Do you by chance have the studies or statistics on people "recovering" from major depression?
I'm curious myself because it feels like the anecdotal stuff I've read and heard is that they either live with major depression for the rest of their life, it gets "mildly" better but they still have chronic depression or they kill themselves.
I haven't really seen or heard of a depressed person that truly recovers. It just seems like the depression ebbs and flows during their life but it's always there.

No. 370817

>Notice how they'll vent here and not some other anonymous source like 4chan where assholes who negatively commiserate would actually tell them to do it
You can't know someone's browsing history just because they post here. They might also post in a bunch of other places and also be seeing a therapist, which in it self is a luxury as it can be expensive as fuck to find a good one.
As much as it makes you or some other anons uncomfortable you can't really understand how unbearable the suicidal anon might be feeling, maybe just in that moment or maybe for a long time.
Don't assume things about internet strangers or places. I've personally seem a lot of people responding in good faith to suicidal anons on 4chan, and know of people that only ever mention suicide online as a way to avoid hurting people they care about irl.

No. 370819

Same, I also want to know as it can be very discouraging being myself someone suffering with depression and a bunch of other unpleasant comorbidities for way over half of my life.
But hey better shut up about it because it might make other anons feel uncomfortable.

No. 370820

>As much as it makes you or some other anons uncomfortable
Which is just as valid as feeling suicidal. Do you know any of our histories? Do you know our traumas with dealing with suicide?
Evidently it doesn't matter to anons like you, because you think feelings override absolutely everything else like boundaries.
I don't mind anons who preface their posts with venting, and are open to persuasion because they're just looking for someone to talk to. I do mind anons who have been abusive to us, and said mean and nasty things because they didn't want to hear a particular something.

You're the worst kind of person who clearly doesn't care about anyone suicidal. Your thinly veiled guise is really obnoxious so if you don't care then why don't you just ignore such posts instead of twisting the situation and painting suianons as ~horrible manipulators~. Someone merely aying they have a plan to do such a thing doesnt effect you and you should expect to see these posts often at a place like this so stop acting so deluded about it.

i felt pretty good yesterday and the day before, now i'm back to feeling like i'm dreaming again. it's unsettling and i know it'll go away soon. maybe not today, but maybe in a few days or weeks. i just have to remember, i've been in this mental state for about half a year so it's not gonna go away just like that. it's tough, but i've progressed so much so i should be proud of myself for it. it's just easier said than done.

Actually it's a recognized manipulative tactic of how people will threaten others to suicide when they don't actually mean it for attention, but go off.
>so if you don't care
We do care, that's the point. That's why we get horrified when anons drop "I'm gonna kill myself tonight" and when we try to talk them down they get obstinate. It's disturbing.
>Someone merely aying they have a plan to do such a thing
Except rarely have anons recently just said this and dropped it, they stick around to defend what they've said and actually get pissed at anons who give them suggestions and reasons to not kill themselves.
Either you don't lurk a lot, or you're misrepresenting to suit your argument.

He also promised to send me this one personal thing he borrowed from me when we dated and he already took half a year to give it back, lying and saying he has cancer and can't walk, lying about sending it and then admitting he lied and so on. He previously messaged me out of blue very heavily insulting my looks and personality. And now he did it publicly and even dragged the other ex into it, it just pissed me off. After I sent the message, he started insulting me about stuff like 'your cunt stinks so much it's like you never take a shower, the way your face looks when you laugh is totally disgusting, you look like a fucking Micheal Jackson with all the makeup you plaster on, here, have a six pictures of my current gf, she's much prettier than you, much better in bed too' and so on and when he went on for a bit I insulted him back with similarly stupid insults. At that point I just wanted to hurt him back. I wanted him to hurt a lot. I know it sounds like we're five years old. I just know I should have kept my mouth shut and ignore it and I regret this stupid shit so much. Really not proud of myself,feeling really shitty about it all.

He sounds like a very poor and disturbed individual. No doubt he will never lead a happy relationship with that personality and since he has a track-record of shitting on exes, his current gf has a big storm coming.

My friend started antidepressant .. for a few months now and suddenly becoming much colder, easily irritable and doesn't seem to be nice to be around anymore. It like her emotions are all eaten up and sounds very robotic.

She might actually want to distance herself from me.. but for some reason now she keeps getting offended and misinterpret things I say and it wasn't like that before.

Anyone's got insight into this?

I have a very niche (and in demand) skillset professionally and I often get pulled in many directions by people asking for help or attention and volunteering. I feel like it's important for women to be represented in my field so I never say no, but then I get stressed and anxious because I'm overworked.

Is it really? Our friendship is falling apart and I feel like I can't really talk without blowing her up anymore. And she doesn't seem too interested either..

We haven't seen each other for a long time but apparently she's just got a new boyfriend now in the circumstance that feels very unlikely to me. So partly I thought her life 'got better'.. in the way that worries me.

But her vibe seemed very strange and out of character really just after antidepressant.. so It's just my guess.

My uncle's wife's birthday is a few days earlier. She threw a fit because she wanted to celebrate her birthday on the day we planned the surprise party, even though me and my other aunt discussed doing this months ago, and I even told bitch aunt that we wanted to do something somewhat special, since my mom is turning 50. So now my mom's surprise birthday party is going to be shared. I wish bitch aunt would just suck it up and let my mom celebrate her 50th, idgaf if it's rude.

The boomers in my family are pissing me off with the way they refuse to learn about any technology.
When my grandpa was alive he'd constantly pester me and my dad to come over and clean out his email inbox (he signed up for spam whenever anything would ask for his email), tell us to fix the printer (no ink), and why the computer was acting funny (malware or adware from clicking on everything). We dealt with it because he was old. My mom and the rest of my family have no excuses.

My mom was a high school teacher up until five years ago when she retired and knew how to get on a computer, and even took a Photoshop class.
The other day she couldn't even understand how to COPY AND PASTE. She couldn't repeat it after I showed her how step by step. What the fuck? I think she's either getting senile, or she's lazy and just wants everything that calls for a little work done for her. Because she has no problem getting around on youtube, or googling things whenever she wants to one up me about something. Now she's bugging me because she has some credit document that needs to be signed, scanned, and sent via email. She repeats what she needs to do, but doesn't want to take time to figure it out and get a wee frustrated in learning, so she bugs me. Now it's my problem.

My uncle is the same way. When I was out a few weeks ago they called me wanting me to drive all the way to their house so my uncle could apply to Wal Mart. It wasn't life or death, my uncle is retired and bored and wanted spending money. The problem? He kept entering his own gmail username and password on the website's login! I tried to explain over the phone how he needed to set up an account on their website but all I got was "Nope, can't do it. I don't understand this fucking computer shit." Tapdancing christ.

My bf just broke up with me. As in, 20mn ago.
We got together in September, it was instant, and since then we spent a lot of time together and genuinely had fun. Then, in January, out of nowhere, he stops replying to my texts.
It feels so unfair. We honestly had a good thing going on and I'm so so heartbroken. He seems pretty tired and I guess he has a lot on his plate, that's why he called it off, and I can't be mad at him. But damn.

On top on that I was slightly relapsing with my ED, and so tonight just broke me. I know the next weeks are gonna be hard.

For the past month or so I've been getting irrationally anxious and/or irritated, like i'm going to burst at the seams at any second. For no reason.

I just want to draw as i always have, why the fuck am i acting up now? I don't understand. I want to draw so badly but my head will start to hurt like crazy… It's not even to update art blogs or stuff like that, i just want to draw. Fuck, man.

Yeah but some of us aren't really about that. I know I'm not much into browsing pt and snow as much anymore. I'm more into the outrageous and idiotic things some people do. I can't speak for anon, but I think it's a reach to say all of us here hate uggos and fatties when truthfully we're indifferent if not sick of those nitpicks altogether.
>when people praise lolcow for being an enjoyable and safe female space
For me it is, lolcow's ot and g are the only imageboard places I've ever consistently lurked and posted on. Compared to any other imageboard I've tried to integrate to and came from, I don't have to deal with hardly any hijinks except infighting which is usually over within a few hours. When I was a poster on 4chan I'd always have to deal with some bullshit and heaven forbid if anything ever indicated I was a female poster.
>reply to and have banter with would probably find a reason to laugh at you if they saw your instagram
Thankfully I don't have one, heh. But that's besides the point. I'm sure I've tussled with anons in one thread and empathized with the same anons in another. It doesn't really bother me. In fact I like it because people are less likely to hold grudges and form circles like what happens with traditional forum websites with usernames. I like it, but it sounds like you don't really enjoy it here.

I have loneliness, but not because I'm insufferable. I'm just quiet and I have a hard time reaching out to friends irl, there's secrets that I want to spout into the void that I wouldn't want to burden anyone with. I post thoughts here that I'd never tell anyone otherwise.

I just want to vent about something that's giving me really low self-esteem. It's been a few weeks since I broke off with my ex, and ever since a few orbiters have been suddenly appearing out of nowhere. I mean I guess that's just what they do.
They make me feel objectified. Like I really only am an object to them and not a human to know. I don't give off any 'thot' vibes and I'm not really sexual, it just makes me mad how some guys from my past are looking to get a piece and it seems like they don't really care about me as anything else.
>one guy I've known since high school got drunk and asked me for nudes, which is something I do for no one, later apologized and says he regrets not being ready back then for a relationship
>an ex contacted me last night and said how he had a sex dream about me, he's in a long term relationship with an older woman and it made me feel really dirty, it felt like he was testing me as if he thinks I'm low enough to indulge in that talk
>guy I slept with once like several years ago is now trying to court me but hasn't outright said what his intentions are, makes me uncomfortable because he doesn't really make an effort to chat with me much and it just seems like he's really out for his own feelings and amusement and not for me
It's really, really hard for me not to feel like something to be used. I know I'm not respected.

Been looking for a job for almost two months now and from 20 applications I only got 1 response back that I might get an interview. The last time it took me 5 months to find something and only had 5 interviews total. It's depressing how little opportunities there are to even apply, and if there is one it's usually a setup to get someone's family member into the company so you end up wasting time anyway.

I'm starting to think I'll start looking for work overseas or some shit. Right now the most sought out professions are nurses and various handymen (plumbers, electricians etc). Also thought about retraining for some of these jobs but somehow I doubt it would get better since I'm a woman. Legit never saw or met a woman doing this stuff in my country now that I think about it.

I'm just so tired of this shit and the high turnover rate most companies have. I'm 23 and I have only 2 years of experience, literally spent 3 years looking for fucking jobs. And of course there are always the smartasses who will say "if you REALLY want to work, you'll find something", yea, I do want to work, but I also want to be able to live off of it. I wish I could afford college or be smart enough to attend so I'd get a degree and fuck off into another country.

My partner's ex tried to convince him to not block her number because she was ~suicidal and the only one who could help was him by being able to talk her out of it. I had to break it down for him what she was doing or else he was naive enough to be manipulated by this. It's super shitty to try to keep someone in your life in this way when they are trying to rid themselves of your toxic ass.

In this case, she could rely on her family and friends and professionals. Of course she wasn't going to because this was meant to be emotional blackmail and she wasn't suicidal at all. She later tried to call him to say she slit her wrists and so I looked on her social media and she had full body pics up of her looking fine. She just wanted my partner to visit her out of guilt but luckily her plan failed there too.

This has taught me to call the cops on people who threaten this so they are taught this shit isn't a game. Kind of like what happened with Social Repose suicide baiting on Twitter.

Except after I submitted the interview they ghosted me completely. It's been three weeks and nothing, I even emailed asking twice and still nothing. It was just for a part time contract on a construction site in a medical triage.

guys are definitely gross when it comes to "shooting their shot" with newly single women. it's really not reflective of how they view you as a person. men project their own post-breakup behaviors onto ALL women and assume, "hey, she'll be looking for a rebound right about now, it'll be an easy hookup" and they make their move regardless of how they feel about the girl. they're shitty that way, and it's why there are so many memes about sliding into a girl's DMs the instant she's single - they really live that reality.

but tbh it sounds like you already had self-esteem issues before all of this. it always feels shitty to be in a position where you feel objectified, but if a person has a healthy view of themselves, they don't take a significant hit to their self-esteem because a few men made them feel bad. healthy people know what they're worth, they're confident in that, and they don't doubt themselves the instant someone else makes them feel a little bit low, nor do they define their worth by how other people view them. sounds like you need to work on yourself a bit. if you value yourself, that should be all that matters.

I feel you anon. I've been looking since November. I went to a recruitment agency recently and they told me that sometimes it takes their clients 6 months to find a job. The thing that annoys me the most is that my family all got jobs in this industry 30 years ago with no degree, no relevant experience and no relevant skills so they're under the impression that it's really easy to get a job but the reality is that all the job listings I see require ridiculous things like 10+ years experience or master's degrees or a big long list of skills that I can only say I have the half of. My family keep pushing me to lie on my CV or apply for things that are way over my head and I just don't have it in me to deceive someone like that. All of my friends from college managed to get jobs basically straight out of college which depresses tf out of me.

I think about moving country a lot too but then I remember that I'd probably just end up having other problems anyway (like rent or the cost of living or bad work environments). Just wanted to say ik it's hard and it's really rough to keep getting rejections (or silence), especially when people around you are finding employment just fine.

This is the worst part.

People always tell me that I just need to build up more experience but I've been working constantly short term jobs in my field for the past 4 years, but haven't been able to find a permanent position after over a year of looking, so I know that's just a bullshit go-to platitude.

idk what's wrong with me, why do I love making my own life stressful and miserable when it doesn't have to be. hopefully I'll finally learn from this! can finally go to sleep though, ya-ayy, have been awake for 32 hours so I feel thoroughly dead.

All but one of my friends got their jobs through connections, and even for them, things aren’t all sunshine and roses. One of my friends worked for half criminal and never got paid out, other friend works illegally…
I recently worked for (ex?) criminal’s wife, they wanted me to work 200+ hours per month for less than minimum wage, but wanted to report that I’m working around around 80 hours so they’d save the money. Couldn’t stand the abuse there either, so i left.

i've wanted a relationship for awhile but i feel really undesirable, in part because i dislike affectionate words, i hate pet names, i don't like cuddling or holding hands or kissing, i don't like… any of that. i hate talking about "butterflies" and all that shit. it just makes me feel childish and stupid if i relate it to myself and grossed out when others mention it.

I always feel so sad after I spend time at my grandparents. What's the point of living into your 80s and 90s if you're just going to be in constant pain, and losing your mind? My grandma has Alzheimer's and she's getting really bad and gets upset when she can't remember who her family members are. And my grandpa has Parkinson's and has bad knees and heart. They live alone in their house, and do almost nothing all day. They sleep and watch the news 24/7. What type of life is that? Family visits them almost everyday, and they get help, but they can't do anything or go anywhere. And when they do it's just doctor appointments. Life sucks, then you get old and spend the last 20-30 years being sick and in pain and having constant doctor appointments. Fuck, I hope I get a brain aneurysm in my late 50's and just die while I'm still able to know who I am enjoying life.

I know it's more than dog owners, but imo the reason why pet owners put their animals on pedestals so much is because they're fucking jerks to people, ergo they can't form as meaningful bonds with another human being.

The whole situation with Brandon Calvillo is really upsetting. I'm glad he was outed for dating an underage girl (and shown to have a pattern of doing it), but most of the comments on videos are attacking his gf Lacey. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. She was underage at the time they were dating and Brandon was 23 or 24. People say they feel "sorry he's in this situation", but at the same time attack her appearance and her actions (lying about being 18 instead of 17 when they got together). Yeah, it was bad she lied and that could get him in jail, but he knew she was 17 and kept dating her. Why does she get the criticism? Men are protected by society even when they're predators and women are always put down even if they're the victims (what he did was technically statutory rape).

There's a lot of studios for camgirls in the country that I live in and all are owned by men and some women are even held as hostages in there. I even had a friend that unfortunately committed suicide 3 months ago. She ended up working at a so called studio after her father died and her house burnt down but they didn't protect her identity and they used her real name to promote her on pornhub without her knowledge and her friends found out and she entered a very strong depressive episode.

Maybe I'm just not used to using money on things that are not objectively useful/necessary and I feel bad because of that…

One of the things was a hair dryer and I was kinda disappointed because the heat setting are basically cold - really hot - I didn't even dare the hottest because the 'medium' was so hot.

Same thing with me. I always overthink after purchasing and have buyer's regret even though I barely use the money for anything but bills and food. I should renew my wardrobe but I keep postponing it.

But this mindset is not healthy. Some things are not necessary but they do make life a lot easier or more convenient. I'm trying to convince myself that I should indulge myself a little bit here and then.

Today was supposed to be the day my ex texted me so we could meet up and give me the rest of the money he promised to owe me back for buying him groceries and other shit when we were together, as well as a book and some other things I had left over there. Unsurprisingly, he ignored my outgoing text after I waited all day, and ignored my phone call. I texted him thanks for the lesson in abuse and to keep the money because it wasn't worth it to keep his terrible ass in the back of my mind anymore.
I blocked him on my phone and deleted him from all social media. He blocked me on fb after I unfriended him. A part of me knew he wouldn't keep his word because he's a desperate liar.

The real tragedy is that he will repeat this with another woman probably very soon. I don't even trust how many exs he had now or the way he broke up with them because of how he twisted the narrative when he abused me and then promptly erased my existence from his social media when we were over. He's a liar, dangerous, and will hurt someone else and there's nothing I can do except pick up the pieces he broke off me and move on. It's one of the shortest relationships I've ever had yet one of the men I've ever hated so much before.

I’m currently trying to find change in my car/house so i can afford some type of dinner. Probably will have to be something cheap from the gas station. I work a full time job but it just isn’t fucking enough when my bills and rent take my entire paycheck. What really fucking kills me though, is my family. My brothers are neets who’ve never held a job nor moved out of the house. I’m the only one who’s made an effort, worked shitty jobs, moved out, pay my own way, meanwhile my siblings get to sit on their asses in a nice comfy house, eat whatever they want, play vidya all day and night, and my family hands them cash and gift cards and groceries. I just don’t fucking get it. If I didn’t hate my family so much for enabling this bullshit maybe I’d move back in for the cushy life, but instead I’m here counting crusty coins, knowing it’ll never be enough to live a comfortable life that my brothers get for just existing.

Is your only reason not to move back home that you dont like your parents enabling your NEET brothers? Don't cut off your nose to spite your face, if they are happy to have you there and you can tolerate living at home you should do it. Working full time while living at home is the absolute best way to save money (aka a deposit on a house). It might not be fun or ideal, but neither is searching for coinage to by dinner. It's just that one option gives you a massive boost in life and the other doesn't.

Ffs I hate myself and my lack of patience now.
When I was a teenager I lived in a different state and met two guys who were cousins. I had a crush on one of them, but he was never interested. His cousin though confessed he liked me and I started to like him too after a while. We dated for a few months, but then I had to move and we agreed to have a LDR. His family actually lived in the city I moved to (he lived with his cousin back there) and dumb me pressed him a lot to live with his parents, even though I knew they didn't get along. After half an year or arguing and never seeing each other I decided to break up. We saw each other 2 years later when I was visiting, hooked up, but agreed to go no contact even though I still loved him.
10 years later I stumble upon his facebook. Add him on a whim, we talk, and I realize I still fucking love him. He actually moved to my city 2 years ago, but he's married now.
I know 8 years is way too long to wait for someone but goddamit. When I saw his pics I realized he's the handsome version of my boyfriend. I never got over him. I hate myself for not being able to wait. Maybe he would have moved here before for me. I'm not going to interfere in his marriage but it hurts like hell.

>tits are giant painful boulders for the last month so either I'm pregnant or it's a birth control side effect

>can't fit into any of my bras as a result except for bralettes and I can't find my only clean one
>husband is harassing me to dirty talk him at work, told him to fuck off because it's inappropriate and the thought of him jerking off in some office bathroom is disgusting and not sexy at all
>just got out of the shower and I'm already stress-sweating because I hate my body and I hate whatever the fuck is wrong with my tits that they're so huge and painful lately
>the thought of taking a pregnancy test literally makes me sick with anxiety but I know I need to do it because if I am then I'm like 3 months along and need to abort ASAP
>this whole situation makes me even madder because I had a serious talk with him a few months ago about getting a vasectomy (we are in our 30's and don't want kids) and he just laughed it off and said I'm already on birth control for the next 3 years so it's fine

So, i’m in africa and have been for about 6 months. My plan was to be here for a month but things happened,

However, i really fucking miss my cats. Out of everything, i miss cats and fear that i probably wont see them. Chances are my dad gave them away to some syrians he works with. It just sucks because in late june my cat lost her kitten, then in july we all just left and never came back and i keep thinking i just walked out of their lives. I know its a cat but i feel so bad and miss her so fucking much and i miss my other cat and i cant possibly understand how confused they must have been that we all just left and stopped showing up.

My dad used to tell me how our first week gone they would just meow and look for us - and when we were facetiming my cat heard my voice and ran to the room and it was really cute and fuck man i miss them

I miss my cats…

>Stop being sympathetic towards TiFs, they're still gender traitors!!! don't give me this bullshit about them being the victim of a misogynist society!!!
I pretty much never see this though… there's occasional comments that are like
>why aren't you guys as harsh on mtfs???
And everyone responds saying that they have internalized misogyny, want to escape being seen sexually, etc. The worst of it is hating on fakebois for their blatant gay fetishizing and hypocritically shaming other fujos for it, but mostly people have sympathy for them even if they think it's bullshit.

In regards to the rest, I do see a fair bit of that. But anons are angry and venting a lot of the time because there aren't that many other places you can do so. I certainly can't blame lesbians for being sick to death of fake bisexuals, or any women for being sick of pornified fetishes that almost always conveniently involve degrading women, if those are the hills people choose to die on then they've probably just had excessive exposure to it compared to other issues.

I understand the psychology and reasoning behind it because I'm not a fucking retard but the sperging is embarrassing. I'm all for venting about males but at times it seems like these cunts are more about attacking other women over petty shit than keeping the sisterhood mentality up. The "women can't enjoy porn because it's always about degrading them" narrative is stupid, not all porn is live action and not all of it is made for men. There are novels, comics and artwork a lot of women get off to instead of the tripe men watch and they should be allowed to have sexual fantasies without some asshole shaming them for "porn addiction". As for the bisexuality thing, I get the hate for women using it as an aesthetic as much as any other person, but in return most political lesbians (that the loudest activists usually are) end up marrying a guy in 10 years anyway.

After two years of being mistreated, taken advantage of and stepped on I finally quit my job. I don’t know why I did it I just did it in the moment. I feel so stupid but also like I probably made one of the best decisions. I’m gonna miss some people so much but honestly I was so unhappy. No idea if I can get another job or when so i’m preparing for the worst, but at least I can feel happy again.

driving home from work today was a bitch. the roads were complete ice and i felt like i was driving for 5 hours even though it only took an hour and 30 minutes. the wind was really strong and i felt like i was in a tornado at one point. i hate the snow.

>There are novels, comics and artwork
When anons say 'porn' they mean actual filmed/photographed porn of real people, not art or literature. Or at least, I've never seen any posts to contradict that assumption while I've seen many posts defending BL comics and so on.

As far as I can tell, the thing that bothers most radfem anons is women shouting their love for submission from the rooftops. Nobody gives a shit if women have fantasies unless they are tarring us all with the same brush, men see one woman claim she wants to be raped and suddenly we all do.

No. 372798

i can't stand people like this that refuse to call yourself something you claim to believe in because four people you dislike act 'spergy' about it. how spineless are you? pornsickness is bad for both men and women though and retarded and/or harmful fetishes should be thoroughly shamed. if you can't stand catching heat for your retarded fetishes that are unhealthy, keep them off lolcow? i respect the anons that acknowledge how stupid their fetishes are and don't piss their pants like this. and a lot of 'bisexual' women make bad names for real bisexual women and plenty of bi women acknowledge that it harms them and their community, wyd?

like, i hate so called 'leftists' now but i'm not going to back down from calling myself one because leftism has been hijacked by fat failsons in striped sockings w baby carrot cocks, bad hair, and no work ethic

>The "women can't enjoy porn because it's always about degrading them" narrative is stupid, not all porn is live action and not all of it is made for men.
you sound kind of retarded tbh. they're talking about actual live porn being harmful to women. and drawn porn, or real porn, can be created by women and allegedly "for" women but not actually be women focused, you know. there's plenty of shit that's claimed to be "for women" but obviously isn't. and tbh porn in general is bad for relationships but w/e

It feels relieving to get rid of all these people, especially ones I've known since high school. But looking back on previous posts when we all used to talk,I can't help but feel kinda sad about it.

No. 372806

it's not reeing, you just have a painfully low threshold for being mildly criticized. there are plenty of anons that admit they do this or that or like this or that but they acknowledge it's not great for them or others and don't advocate it instead of getting irrationally offended because someone points out how it's probably not the best for them

and again, like four girls on an imageboard is not all of radical feminism or even remotely representative of radical feminism, like, at all, so

yes, obviously the men are the larger problem, but the women shouting about how they love submission should be informed about how it's harmful and how their vocalization of this particular fetish is harmful to other women, because it's already so, so heavily pushed at every corner, to the point where literal tweens and pre-tweens are wearing 'daddys girl' crop tops, ffs. the submission female fetish is a meme anyways and the more women are made cognizant of it, the more they can see how damaging it is and how vulnerable it makes them. why does it seem like you guys are under the impression that women can't be informed about how or why something is harmful and, ideally, should not be bragged about, if they know it's harmful? ideally, women should try to condition themselves out of these fetishes, if possible. if not for the interest of all women, but more importantly, for their own safety. it literally makes them vulnerable and prey to predatory men. women's behavior can be critiqued too. you assume and act like men aren't being shit on at the same time, but they are?

I don’t post about any of my kinks, but it’s utterly stupid to blame the women in this scenario. You could extend this to anything men do and instead blame women for it - men rape? It’s because of those women that dress scantily. Men demand nudes? It’s because of the minority of the population that are camgirls. Men abuse wives? It’s because women nag.

Abusive and mysoginitic men will be this way regardless of whether or not you shame women for behaviour that ultimately only affects them on a paersonal level. A small population of women enjoying masochism or taking it up the ass is not the reason why women as a whole are seen as men’s sex toys to be abused. And in the grand scheme of things, some woman wanting her sexual partner to pull her hair or call her a slut while getting fucked is none of your concern unless it involves unconsenting parties, these women are capable of making their own informed decisions and don’t need to you speaking on their behalf

Samefag, but why are people always more comfortable to criticise the choices and behaviours of women, even in feminist spaces where men should be the ones more scrutinised.

No. 372820

This choice feminism nonsense… as if women complicit in promoting abuse are above criticism. I really don't care about hurt feelings if there's a chance that vocal opposition to such 'kinks' has even the slightest chance of it resonating with a girl who might use it to protect herself in future. If someone feels attacked by mild criticism and a less than warm welcome, well, it's worth it.

No. 372823

It’s not about hurt feelings it’s about unfair vilification. Masochism is in no way deserving of more criticism than sadism, stop absolving men of their responsibility because of a small minority of women.

No. 372827

>but it’s utterly stupid to blame the women in this scenario.
no one is BLAMING women. what we're doing is saying that this shit that is harmful for women and girls doesn't need to be signal boosted BY WOMEN in a community of outcasted girls and women when they have literally the rest of the internet to seek out asspats for, and when men are blaring this shit in our ears 24/7. as an example, tumblr is a community made up largely of females but them hyping shit men want as being aesthetic and desirable, like this uwu loli baby daddy bullshit DOES NOT HELP, and it has culminated in a generation of outcasted internet girls romanticizing predatory men and predatory situations. women being even unknowing footsoliders of the patriarchy should be alerted to the harms of their behavior. it's not a crime, and you're not being victimized for it, and women aren't the ones being primarily blamed, but their being complicit needs to be recognized, or else everything men want flies under the radar of "BUT SOME WOMEN WANT IT!!", no matter how harmful it is.

>And in the grand scheme of things, some woman wanting her sexual partner to pull her hair or call her a slut while getting fucked is none of your concern unless it involves unconsenting parties, these women are capable of making their own informed decisions and don’t need to you speaking on their behalf

kek, that's just golden, anon. it's none of our concern… when they insist on making it public?

>Masochism is in no way deserving of more criticism than sadism, stop absolving men of their responsibility because of a small minority of women.

we have a whole thread of dedicated to shitting on men for this shit, retard. sorry that women who insist on being complicit in bragging about their regressive fetishes on the literal one space of the internet that might disagree with the ethics and safety of it, aren't getting asspats and approval and are instead told to analyze their actions for their own safety. and again, we have a literal whole thread dedicated to rightfully blaming men for pushing this bullshit on women, so it truly sounds like you're just irrationally assmad that you can't shout from the rooftops about how much you love whatever regressive bullshit you're into

and it's also not a small minority of women. a decent amount of women are memed into this and that's why they should be reminded to analyze their desires/fetishes, especially before signal boosting shit that men already want us to believe and desire, for their benefit.

No. 372828

You guys keep wrongfully assuming I’m a masochist, I’m just sick of women being frequently berated over masochism while judgement of sadistic men is kept to a single thread and sadistic women are celebrated.

And just because some retards have no social filter and don’t understand that their sex life shouldn’t be displayed doesn’t mean that they’re somehow not a minority. A vast majority of women aren’t masochistic.

are you serious? is this your first day here???? we literally cannot speak about it in other threads without getting banned or reported, and when manhate threads are active, we are told to keep it to the containment thread. when it was spoken about in other threads anons were getting reported for being femcels and people were crying in /meta/ to completely ban complaints about men and suggesting permabanning 'manhaters' or radfems, ffs.

>A vast majority of women aren’t masochistic.

the majority of women into masochism are memed into it, but polling suggests that too many women are 'into' it. the issue is that they're not actually conscious of the harms of it and how it is shoehorned into women for male's pleasure.

No. 372847

>we literally cannot speak about it in other threads without getting banned or reported

This is literally part of the fucking problem, the berating of women’s sexuality is allowed everywhere but men are somehow above criticism

>majority of women into masochism are memed into it

Again, women aren’t a hive mind and are capable of making their own decisions and plenty will form kinks you don’t agree with without outside influences.
Treating women like inept retards that need to be guided through life by you turns them away from your ideology.

Also, you completely ignored how female sadism is celebrated, I’d really like to see your reasoning behind this. Being as abusive as our oppressors is neither empowering nor progressive

No. 372867

There might be a femdom thread on lolcow which is tolerated but in no way is female dominance and sadism celebrated in general society. Sadism shouldn't be celebrated anyway. I'd say a reason to be more critical of the promotion of female masochism is that it may actually lead to girls and women being hurt irl while it's not common for men to be victims of female violence.
