Hard to swallow pill: cats don't like you. They're cute house ornaments at best, get over it.
That's fine, I love him even if he can't love me back. Just caring for things is nice, same with fish or plants who have less and no cognitive abilities respectively.
If a person needs returned affection and service they should just stick to dogs or no pets at all.
you see this same reaction when people interact with dogs who aren't stereotypically affectionate as well. service dogs, breeds that are known for being aloof like shibas and even just individuals who don't like a lot of attention or are nervous/past trauma etc., people get real personally offended if the dog doesn't respond to affection or avoids it. they just can't comprehend an animal who doesnt make humans the center of their world and think therefore they are useless as pets.
t. volunteered at humane society for 10 years, groom dogs for a living and own two rescue dogs, one of which is a greyhound who despises 99% of people.
There are plenty of animals that are nothing like dogs and are still better than cats overall, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, rats, but worse than cats are often their owners; in particular those that let them roam and refuse to desex them.
Unrelated to what you said here’s a really hard to swallow pill though, people who prefer the company of animals because they ‘don’t judge them’? They absolutely would if they had the capacity to like those around you, if you’re unable to connect to the people around you or find that they avoid you then you most likely have an awful personality or you have poor sense of hygiene.
Yeah sorry, but that's bs. Cats definitely get attached to their humans and show affection.
I totally get it if someone's not a fan of how you have to go slow and steady with cats, and would rather have the straightforward and overwhelming affection from a dog. But to say that cats don't care about anything or anyone at all, that's just a straight up lie.
Does being shy and nervous in social situations count as an awful personality?
I don't get anxious around my cat (or tarantula lol) because they don't expect me to converse with them, which I'm not great at with strangers. Also am kind of ugly. I'm clean, just got an ugly face and humans can judge me for that but other animals won't.
I get that it's an annoying ~uwu I'm so different and an introvert~ sort of thing to hear but…if the shoe fits? Although I'd never say it to anyone of course because of that implication.
my cats sleep on my head or right next to me every night, will start purring when i look at them, demand affection constantly, etc. i've owned and fostered 18 cats throughout my life and the same thing basically happens every time. you can't demand affection from your friends and just expect your friends to fawn all over you. it does take time to develop a relationship with your cat/with cats and maintain trust. it's in their best interest and safety that they be able to 'vet' people before being vulnerable with them. why and how is this a fault of theirs?
why do people think an animal's willingness to put themselves in danger by being vulnerable with anyone is a positive? that's a very bad thing. a very scary thing. imagine chiding children for not being affectionate soon enough and not being doting and subservient soon enough and then considering hesitation or boundaries "not liking" or "not caring about" others.
What? Womanlet and manlet? It was kind of joke-y in my first post since I'm not actually
short. And people use manlet here sometimes (albeit as an insult to invaders).
Again maybe with the mush it just came off as weird all mixed together, I can see that.
Kinda ot about what yall are replying about but>imagine chiding children for not being affectionate soon enough and not being doting and subservient soon enough
This happened to me as a child all the fucking time, it's how a lot of little girls were socialized before the 2000s until anyone started to give a fuck. Give a fuck about the curious case of training kids that they have no bodily autonomy, no right to say 'no' to 'affection,' and to always defer to people claiming they have authority.
I was forced to give hugs and kisses to people when I didn't want to, be touched when I didn't want to be touched, be polite even if I didn't want the attention, etc.
Know what happened to me when a man with authority molested me and yelled at me that what he was doing was actually okay? That's right, nothing.
It's fucked and it happens. People are just as mental to their own children as they are to dogs and cats.

Dark chocolate sucks!
Milk chocolate rules! Swiss is the best!
I think maybe it was because the parody aspect is so subtle and the delivery is really dry. If it wasn't for some in-your-face absurdist aspects like the frequent apparence of giant Toblerones and the vaping judge, it would be indistinguishable from any other bad anime.
I personally enjoyed it but it's definitely not for everyone and I wouldn't recommend it to anybody.
Yeah, it's nonsense. Low libidos are real, libidos so low they are practically non existent are real, but what are the chances it's affecting a bunch of young, otherwise healthy girls? The common denominated is tumblr bullshit combined with insecurity, discomfort and inexperience when it comes to sex and being viewed sexually. Which is also understandable but not likely to be some permanent, complete lack of a sex drive that is so significant it needs a label.
I think if true asexuality existed that wasn't a medical/mental issue, it would be impossible for them to perceive their own sexual orientation. Like, the way a 100% straight person feels about the same sex or a 100% gay person feels about the opposite sex, that's how an asexual would feel about both. But they always seem to have a preference one way or the other, like Kenna obsessing over anime and kpop boys. Actually, in her case I think she's just so infatuated with perfect characters and idols that being into a regular human being is unfathomable to her… thus 'asexual'.
We must be around different asians, because majority of those in my area (which is filled to the brim with Asian international students) have the most god awful skin I have ever seen. The acne scars they have leave behind craters that look like they belong on a moon.
But in all seriousness I’m very skeptic so to believe that somehow one race, and specifically only on portion of said race, has magical genetics that gives them all flawless skin. Please, it’s like believing that they all come from the womb highly skilled and intelligent when in reality it’s that past generations valued education and success very highly and had strong work ethic which they would push onto their children from a young age - I say past generations because a lot of the asians I’m around now seem to have taken to heart the meme that they’re just inherently superior and seem genuinely dumbfounded that they don’t achieve better results than other races when they put in absolutely zero effort.
All seasons are awful imo.
Winter? Cold and gross.
Summer? Sweaty and the days are too long.
Spring? Rainy and causes allergies.
Fall? Spring 2.0 with more rain and more allergies.
Winter is only my favourite because it's less sweaty and the fashion is nice. But really it's all bad.
t. Also come from a place where it's always winter btw.
fucking amen, anon. I hate winter and I hate rain. Being cold and makes me feel gross. Also winter fashion makes me look fat with all the layers and stuff I have to wear to stay warm.
I've noticed everyone who loves winter and fall lives in California or some place where it's mild. Like of course you do, you've never had to shovel snow in below freezing weather. And I hate pants.
I like how it’s significantly cheaper to keep warm than it is to keep cool, and I hate the sweatiness of summer.
But nothing can beat the feeling of a spring breeze and seeing everything come back to life
This. Most Asians I see don't even have skin that good, so it's not even a matter of genetics imo.
1 zillion step Korean skincare only became popular because of kpop idols, and kpop idols have good skin because they can afford the best derms, just like celebrities all over the world.
yes, there's tons of gimicky nonsense products, and you def don't need a 10 step, but there's some gems in asian skincare. Things that make sense are sunscreens, vitamin C, acids, retinol, etc. It's not all a scam.
Also not every asian takes care of their skin.
I agree, I think people who say they really love winter have never really lived in a place with a lot of snow and ice. I moved down to the south a few years ago and I really don't miss it.
Among the things I don't miss>having to shovel snow every morning>having to start my car 30 minutes before going anywhere to defrost and thwack ice off my windshield>getting my boots and shoes soaked in salty slush, which was sometimes enough to soak through into my socks and make me uncomfortable all day>employers demanding their employees report to work even in dangerous driving conditions>car's paint job getting ruined quicker due to salt and dug up pavement from plows >everything looks dirty after a few days from a fresh snowfall from the salt, melt, and mud >having to layer up to bear the cold outside, but then sweating my ass off whenever I went inside someplace because of the heat turned up >electric bill more expensive because of heating requirements
Snow was only ever cool on a day off knowing I didn't have anyplace to go. The rest of the time it was shit.
I mean, couldn’t the same just be said about people who say they love the summer?
Summer here is awful, it’s dry and we have fires, UV ratings that are always in the extreme, droughts, hardly ever cloudy so the sun just glares down at you, heatwaves that drive up electricity bills to an insane amount and this year we hit 48c
The weirdest thing that happened to me during a southern summer is that my car dashboard warped, and it's a bit annoying to wait for the a/c to really kick up but it's usually there in five minutes plus I just roll down the windows. It's really nothing like a snowstorm lol, but I say that as a person who experienced 9 feet of snow the year before I moved to a warmer state.
Humidity is kind of a bitch but in some places there's dry heat so people don't always have to deal with that, whereas snow is plain cold universally.
I totally agree with you, but to be fair I went through patches of that attitude that you say your mother had at periods of my life due to self esteem issues. Like I'd hype myself up and get excited about hanging out with someone because I'm normally introverted but then find the actualexperience somewhat disappointing irl. Plus sometimes I'd have really well intentioned friends be fucking annoying and it was pissing me off but I'd get mad about it after. Like one of my mates went into my bedroom amd complained it was messy one day and started randomly cleaning it up and looking through my shit. I get she felt close like she could trust me and was trying to be helpful but it annoyed me no end. Sometimes I can't tell if the person is at faultor it's me exaggerating so I just usually blame it on a bad interaction and try again.
I get mad but don't vent to anyone in particular though

i love makeup and i think it's totally fine for a guy to wear makeup but i hate this drag queen looking shit. it's so, so ugly. men look better if they just do minimal shit and not all the nasty troon looking contouring. i don't like seeing it on anyone tbh, it's so fucking ugly and idk why you would spend all that time looking like a goddamned ventriloquist dummy.

Fuck, that's what's trendy nowadays? No wonder everyone in makeup store want me to buy concealer and fondation that are too light and make me look grey and dying.
I noticed youtubers usually shit on brands that don't have enough light or dark shades for foundation and concealers while never wearing their correct shades but they were still not looking that bad on camera.

that guy's constant stubble bothers me so much.
i like the way people tend to do eye makeup here, but i don't understand a lot of trends: falsies for casual looks, blocky eyebrows, cake foundation (especially if you already have really great skin, caking on face paint defeats the purpose of taking care of your skin), drag queen level contouring, that dry ass matte lipstick… i mean, i've tried those things for fun and i looked like a clown. not to be weeb but korean makeup is a lot more flattering overall, imo. no clowny cakeface, no dried out lips with that stupid matte sticking to my lips all day, etc. lip tints are so much better, i'd rather have to reapply some color after eating than feeling like i have dried glue on my lips all day. i'm not trying to look like a sexy baboon.

the only men I can think of who look good in make-up are alt/goth guys like david bowie. The eyeshadow on jack sparrow is cute, too.
holy shit, yes i fucking hate the winter. all these points apply to me as well. i would gladly move to a place where it's warmer in the summer because i'll just be sweaty and sticky and it'll be hard to breathe a few days, but i won't have to deal with fucking electric bills, heating is ALWAYS more expensive than air conditioning, and my car won't rust up faster.
less clothes to have to buy too. i'm seriously considering moving across the country because my area just had a terrible ice storm and it took me 2 hours to get to work when it usually only takes me 35 minutes. that would not happen in the warmer weather.
>>374096>People who like winter are just trying to be special snowflake contrarians
Nah, people just like different things. And depending on where you live your experiences of the seasons are different.
Summer and spring both suck ass.
those anons are probably the same people who think people in the UK are bitches for dying in 80F weather even though those people are not acclimated to that weather at all and none of the infrastructure is built to cool.
also I live in New England and love winter even though I have to get up at the asscrack of dawn to shovel (it's easier now that I have a snow blower). I'll take it over sweaty gross summer any day of the week.
I like it too, when it's subtle. I tend to just go a bit heavier towards the middle of my lip rather than actively attempt a gradient.
Lip tint really is god tier imo. It just makes your lips look a different colour with no particular texture, it doesn't look like it's slathered in product the way lipstick or gloss does. It lasts ages and doesn't rub off, it's cheap, it can be as bright or natural looking as you want, I love it.
I don' mind this look but I loathe when men don't shave and wear makeup. I mean like that Manny guy who has the beard. It looks so mismatched and ugly >>374096Triggered
rn because I love Winter and I live in a place that drops to the dangerous negatives every year with bad snowstorms. I love when shit gets cancelled and I can stay in in a blanket and hoodie with some soup.
On the opposite end summer fucking sucks. It's too hot to go out or do anything. You can't even shower without becoming sweaty again right away and bugs crawl up from the pits of hell to bother you.
Same, along with Adventure Time, Korra, and even Regular Show. The animation feels too stiff.
Also the cursed bean mouth.
RWBY is the worst, it's literally Yandere Simulator's design but in video. It's 2016 Berserk's CG but it lasts for the entire time.
She-ra and SU look like pieces of art in comparison.
ikr, it's not even interesting, and the fact that it's fucking softcore porn and in medieval packaging doesn't help its case. also
breaking bad wasnt even that good
I think most children have, though?
Or maybe I'm wrong. Kill me anon.

so… you won't use a tissue because you're afraid of germs being on it, but you're fine using your finger, which also has germs on it? bacteria is everywhere, you know? it's not going to kill you to use a tissue, lol.
picking your nose is dumb. every morning i blow my nose to prevent feeling like there's stuff in there all day.
nta but I hate blowing my nose because it makes me ears pop. I use a tissue, but prefer to wipe/pick to get it all out.
My mom always says it's gross to do it like that even if I wash my hands afterward, but it's more thorough and pleasant (for me).
I think picking your nose with a tissue is fine I don't care how
you get your snot out but picking with your bare fingers, that's just nasty, unsanitary and rude.

Adults who are still obsessed with Harry Potter are weird and embarrassing. The fact that there are 25 year olds who still say their favorite book is a Harry Potter installment is sad. Yes, I get that you loved the books and movies as a child but you don't need to make the fact that the online quiz said you're a hufflepuff into your entire personality and have your life revolve around it.
Actually people who base their entire personality off of any one thing like that are fucking weird. But I feel like the Harry Potter obsession is the most pervasive and socially acceptable. There are so many adults (some of which wouldn't have even been children when HP first came out) who are still obsessed with the books and movies, which are about literal children! The harry potter subreddit is the cringiest thing - full of tattoos, home decor, engagements, weddings, etc. And according to them if you aren't rabidly obsessed or don't care for the series you're immediately a disgusting heartless heathen who didn't have a childhood.
The ridiculous theories that they come up with and the over analysis of a series written for children is insane. It's not that deep. Don't even get me started on the degeneracy J.K. Rowling is attempting to insert into all of it in order to stay relevant

Maybe post the whole text next time, anon.
NTA but even if it is YA it's pretty embarrassing when grown ass adults are obsessed with any YA literature. I don't care if people want to read some YA books for fun but adults who exclusively read trashy Hunger Games-esque books and act like they're sooooo intelligent because they're readers
and so nerdy! are embarrassing. Aka all of "booktube"
File: 1550425483794.jpg (122.67 KB, 640x853, i11zav9yw8g21.jpg)
common sense media recommends the books for 7-12 year olds (children)
but regardless, adults who are obsessed with harry potter are fucking cringy. I read every goddamn one of those magic treehouse books when I was little and you don't see me building a treehouse in my backyard
Fucking exactly lmao. I'm not gonna sit on my high horse and say you must read drab 800 page purple prose 18th century literature to be a "good reader" or whatever but like, come on. It's like saying you're a foodie when all you eat is tendies and french fries.>>375252
That's fair. Like I said, I don't think it's automatically cringy if you're an adult who reads YA books. I just hate the subculture of pretentious adults who like to call themselves bookish/well-read but only read YA and act superior and smug for it anyway.
I also feel like a lot of people like this focus more on peacocking and humble bragging and less about actually reading and discussing books. It's all about having a huge bookshelf of overpriced hardcover editions of the latest trendy YA series and doing stupid shit for the aesthetic like arranging your huge book collection by cover color, because fuck being able to easily find a specific book, right? Or causing stupid drama over fucking books because of crybaby SJW politics. If you look up "booktube" on YouTube basically everything is about drama or other meta shit about the community and barely any interesting discourse about books. It's retarded.
Oh no, I don’t discredit works of fiction automatically just because of the young age of the intended audience. If you critically look at books for kids you’ll see what I mean, a few recent ones off the top of my jeans would be; Wonder, Pax, In Real Life, Some Kind of Happiness, The Dollmaker of Krakow
But yeah, ‘yikes’, children’s books sure are bad

>>375223>mfw a co-worker in my training class introduced herself using an 'interesting fact about herself' by saying she'd read one of the Harry Potter books over 200 times and knew because she made a tally every time she read it
And ofc she had a Slytherin bag, scarf, coat, etc. I introduced myself saying my hobby was mostly reading and had to tell her several times that I never even finished the series and had no interest in doing so, it didn't appeal to me at all.
Like grow the fuck up, jfc. She left in the middle of training, luckily.
in one of my classes the professor asked us each to say our favorite book… in a class of 20 people, 12 said some harry potter variant. and then the discussion devolved into which book was the best. this is a class for graduating seniors only.
i've never even read them (my mom bought me the first one when I was little and I hated it lol) and when I tell this to people they act like i'm literally satan
Samefag, I’m on mobile and for whatever reason it autocorrected head to jeans
Sage for ot
Her personality really said it all too, she was childish, whiny, gave me way too much personal information about herself, was an 'artist' and bitched that it wasn't fair that she had to take this job to 'please her parents' because that's 'not what she went to school for' but apparently making an Etsy shop to sell her crochet scarves was 'too hard.'
When I told her I'd never finished the series because I grew out of it and lost interest, no matter what conversation we were having she would manage to steer it back to Harry Potter. I try not to judge people on their entertainment (I still watch and try to keep up with the DCAU) but the impression that I get if you're one of those people is that you're a spoiled little bitch who never had to mature. I know it's harsh and that's just off of one person I've met IRL, but online they all seem pretty much the same.
It’s the age group when most people are avid readers, might not shape you for life but it’s still something that sticks with you. I mean, even you remember what you read at that age
Keep in mind lots of people don’t go on reading into their adulthood so middle grade books are often the only ones to have impacted them
God, I fucking hated reading Shakespeare in middle and high school. Why should you read a play when it's meant to be performed? Especially because the language in Shakespeare plays is not something that 99% of high school kids want to slug through. Maybe I'm a retard but I only liked being taught Shakespeare when we watched a film adaptation alongside it, because then things actually made sense, and it was easier to appreciate the wordplay and such.
I understand some plays are a little more obscure and don't have a movie version or a recorded theater performance, but it's fucking Shakespeare, for crying out loud. I'm gonna guess that almost any Shakespeare play that's being taught in high school probably has multiple movie adaptations.
Any teacher that doesn't work to bring Shakespeare to life by showing the class comparisons of different adaptations or some other way should be fined. Shakespeare is so easy to make into a fun thing, there are rude jokes and interesting insights about the culture of his times for a start, there should be no excuse to just leave kids with the scripts and hope they get on with it.
I can still see the importance of teaching his works since it covers usage of literary devices, language history and how just knowing his work unlocks many cultural "in jokes" even in current media. But if a teacher isn't going to make it accessible then kids could learn probably as much from studying Friends.

i love chihuahuas so damn much
i hate how many people seem to have a vitriolic hatred for them, even other so-called dog lovers
every dog deserves love and kindness
except pit bulls
Me too, I love their goofy bug eyes and pointy ears.
(tbh I think small dogs in general are often picked on since they're stereotypically associated with female owners and being "useless")
>>375572>every dog deserves love and kindness
except pit bulls
this, I love every other dog breed but pitbulls should be exterminated. and pugs.
Your tastes might've just changed. I used to avidly read and search for sci-fi novels, but I haven't been able to get into any at all.
The lasts few books I've read have been nonfiction and soviet-era short stories. >>375317
I'm still grateful for my AP English teacher in senior year who let us choose from 4 books to read every unit. The discussion groups were more fun because they were smaller, and in general everyone picked something that appealed to them so it wasn't an endless stream of "it's soooo boring". Introduced me to my favorite book that completely changed my view of literature - I used to be one of those purple prose snobby elitists.
small dogs get picked on usually because their owners think they don't need to be trained or something because they're small. Most people I talk to seem to dislike their piercing barking. Big dog barks are legitimately scary tho.
I personally don't really like the really frail, small ones. They seem like they'll die really easily, and I tend to trip over my own small dog but it's fine cuz he's buff and sturdy.
File: 1550475778153.png (572 KB, 623x335, pit.PNG)
it is fucked up what humans have done to them, but i don't think they're uwu misunderstood puppers that can be rehab'd
violence is in their genes
but i don't advocate, like, killing or abusing them
i just think they shouldn't be bred anymore
whenever i am with my dog in public and i see a pit, i have to leave immediately because the owner is always some dumb trashy fuck that can't keep it under control
they ruin every dog oriented place for regular dog owners
Majority of dogs have been bred for companionship first and foremost, pit bulls to begin with were bred to be guard dogs which is why they have such strong jaws and quick reactions, because of these traits they’ve now been bred to be fighting dogs.
Most dogs aren’t violent in nature but aren’t being put to work like intended, say sheepdogs or terriers - they were bred to have high energy levels and most people are sedentary now so they have nowhere to focus that energy
We’ve fucked up all domestic animals with our breeding and now sedentary lifestyles, look at sheep who now have to have their tails docked because we no longer eat that part of their body and flies will eat them alive if we keep their tails intact (other than maybe very small farms that can give each animal individual attention)
>>375603>they're just larger and more muscular with stronger bite force than those dogs, so they inflict more damage.
I.. I think that's pretty much the reason why people dislike them so much, anon. If a golden retriever bites you, it's usually only one bite and done to protect itself or its owner. If a pitbull bites you, it's due to you probably moving too much to trigger
a response and because they're bred partly from terriers, they grab you in their jaws and shake you around until you're dead. Most other terriers are small (thus relatively harmless) in size and have this feature to hunt for small rodents, but because pitbulls are big fuckers they're bred to kill bigger prey.
You are factually incorrect.
"Our data were consistent with others, in that an operative intervention was more than 3 times as likely to be associated with a pit bull injury than with any other breed."Characteristics of 1616 Consecutive Dog Bite Injuries at a Single Institution, by by Golinko et al., Clinical Pediatrics, July 2016
"Our data revealed that pit bull breeds were more than 2.5 times as likely as other breeds to bite in multiple anatomical locations."Characteristics of 1616 Consecutive Dog Bite Injuries at a Single Institution, by by Golinko et al., Clinical Pediatrics, July 2016
"Most alarming is the observation that when attacks come from unfamiliar dogs, the pit bull was responsible for 60% and 63% of all injuries and ocular injuries, respectively."Ocular Trauma From Dog Bites: Characterization, Associations, and Treatment Patterns at a Regional Level I Trauma Center Over 11 Years, by Prendes et al., Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, June 2015
i'm not factually incorrect. pitbulls do cause more injury because of the fact that they are stronger with much more bite force and attack differently than other dogs. i already said that. that means that their attacks result in more severe injuries that necessitate intervention/operation. HOWEVER, their temperament is not unlike other dogs. they aren't especially aggressive in comparison to other dogs, they're just more dangerous because they're pure muscle with a different fighting/attack style.
and most studies concede that the frequency of pitbull attacks have more to due with the fact that pitbulls and pitbull mixes are becoming some of the most popular dogs thanks to assholes, not because they tend to be especially aggressive as a breed.
…I think pit bulls are good dogs :(>>375223
BIG agree. I also feel this way about adults obsessed with Disney.
I'm 20, and I've basically chosen to never read Harry Potter out of sheer spite.>>375341
They had us read the Samurai's Garden in high school and I fucking loved it. It's one of the few books that made me cry.>>375603
Cats are more violent than dogs in my experience. They're also less sanitary than dogs (Google it, their saliva has way more harmful bacteria than dogs).>>375884>furry porn should be a crime
What the fuck totalitarian state wou,d enforce something like that?
They're idiots in mascot costumes, not terrorists jfc
So while I doubt it'll ever be made illegal, I do think there is merit to doing this and here is why.
Both lolicons and furries have been outed time and time again on discord servers and other online communities to be instigating IRL sexual relations with minors and animals. This is very unlike people with rape kinks (also a gross fetish), who can get their fix through consensual BDSM and don't develop communities specifically with the purpose of coming up with grooming tactics and exchanging smut videos.
We do know lolicons and furries both almost always end up in grooming related communities and the drawn porn is a catalyst. It's a matter of when, not if, they will end up hurting an animal or a child. They always end up going online to groom kids or adopting animals to rape them. They don't stop at cartoons, they do seek live action footage and then escalate it to seeking IRL experiences.
So for the reason they have a tendency to create communities and discuss grooming techniques, I think you could probably make a case to ban them in a country that isn't the US.
I only did with my best friend so I could talk about crushes, but there's no reason to come out to my parents unless I get a girlfriend. Although I can't convince even males to date me so I doubt that will ever happen lmao.
In online circles I think it's for sj points or attention, like you said.

I couldn't care less about Asexuality truly. Despite having an incredibly low sex drive or feelings of attraction myself and honestly could probably use ace as a label if it even seemed important enough to do so. I don't see any point or pride in displaying the fact that i don't want to fuck like who cares lol
it's so annoying and i HATE how i'm made to feel like shit because i'm not enthusiastic about the idea of wasting my life making other people money and am constantly belittled because i don't aspire to have a career where i take on responsibility. unless it's my company or is a non-profit or something, idgaf, and i'll put in the least amount of effort. am i supposed to be impressed that these people are so heavily invested in believing that AIG actually thinks they're "valuable members of the team" that they'll work themselves to death to feel special and 'accomplished'? i notice, anyways, that the pay raise is hardly ever proportional to the amount of responsibility and liability you're then forced to take on. you just get paid more to be a scapegoat for someone else's incompetence. color me thrilled! at least my ability to fuck up as a sandwich artist is minimal and i can't be blamed for mismanaging or ruining the lives of others. i also think a lot of people (esp in burgerland) are conned into the idea that they're more capable than they actually are. i'd rather recognize my limitations, and have others recognize theirs, than see the amount of total ineptitude in so many fields just bc it's not dignified for people to hold lower positions. it's way more admirable, anyways, to put your effort into volunteering, you know, actually trying to make the world a better place, or at the very least, donating in order to do so, than investing your entire fucking life into some bullshit gig where absolutely no one cares about you.>>376947
then legit that's my shit. i want the least amount of responsibility possible. i once read about a janitor who amassed $8 million and hid it from everyone. worked all his life as a janitor and no one knew. he just was frugal and knew how to invest. that's so much cooler than slaving yourself to death for an ever more difficult lifestyle that you don't need and can't actually afford. >>376946
it's sad, every job should pay an actual living wage, damnit
I can relate, though I aspire to a slightly higher level of wagecuck. A comfy, sit down office job with food and coffee accessible at all time and a bit more money is ideal. There is a tendency for office jobs to get busy and horrible sometimes but I will continue on my quest to find the job I can slack off on the most while still doing a decent job.
No amount of money can compensate for peace of mind and free time, I will never be ambitious enough to let myself get overly stressed and busy in a position of responsibility. Honestly this kinda applies to marriage and children for me too, I crave a relaxed, easy life above everything else.
So did I, but you do realise that just because something impacts you doesn’t mean you’re suddenly going to develop an incest fetish, right?
Since a lot of you are misunderstanding, by impact I meant that kids in that age group are often obsessive readers, they often devour the books they love and move onto the next book by that author because of how much they enjoy their work. Of course there are outliers, but look at what kids in that age group are like in book stores/libraries or better yet what their parents are like - when looking for a book it’s almost always something by the same authour or from their favourite series.
And that’s what I was saying sticks with people, they associate that childhood wonder and excitement with those books. A lot of the books you would’ve read in your older years you’ll have forgotten unless they really spoke to you, but the books from your childhood stick with you because children love things differently. Sure, the book itself may not have been the greatest, and they haven’t completely changed the course of your life, but the feelings stick with you.
That’s all I meant by impact, I don’t know why so many of you are having trouble understanding that impact doesn’t have to be life changing.

im not italian in the slightest so maybe i've just had bad pasta my whole life but pasta sucks. what is it, fuckin tomato and soggy wheat sticks, maybe an olive or ground beef if youre feeling extravagant? wheres the flavor?
no shade to italians though, you guys make god-tier desserts
I get what you're saying, but tbh I used to read like that and I don't remember like 98% of all the shit I read. I don't even really remember the feeling since I was just, as you said, reading the next book in a series or by an author.
I remember the majority of what I've read as an adult and imo they've had more impact on me because adult responsibilities = less time so I am more discriminate in my choices.

Whenever I see a girl I graduated high school with having a baby with her deadbeat on-again-off-again "fiance" I assume it's just because she has no personality and needs to push out a kid to feel like they've accomplished something without really doing anything.
Kinda feel attacked by this since I guess I would fall into that category, and I can assure you it isn’t because they have no personality - like the majority of kids they’re accidents, it has no reflection on their personality.
Just because you’re a mum doesn’t mean you don’t have any ambitions/interests, kids are a 24/7 commitment so life gets in the way.
I probably generalized this post too much because mostly what I've seen has been anecdotal; boring ass girls I knew who popped out babies and now their whole personalities revolve around being a mom. Didn't have any ambitions of their own when I knew them and now all I see are baby photos and passive aggressive statuses about how their boyfriends don't actually parent.
I have no vendetta against young moms, just more the expectation that women have to become all encompassing servants once they have kids with no thoughts or ambitions of their own. Obviously being a mom is a huge commitment but I feel like people expect woman to be 100% about your children or else you're a bad parent. It's sad and frustrating seeing women fall into this trap and not realizing that they can have children as well as a sense of individuality.

Anon you replied to, and I feel this. My kids are all people every ask me about and my parenting is constantly under scrutiny (mainly whether or not I wait on the hand on foot), but a lot of it comes internally too. Constant feelings of guilt if I do anything for myself or feel sick of my kids.
Although I don’t at all see the need to post about my kids publicly all the time, and I see this more from older mums than the younger ones.
Again though, any ambition someone has tends to go out the window during their kids younger years because they take up so much of your time and attention and you feel half dead majority of the time

I hate commentary channels on YouTube. It's usually some smug, mediocre white guy sharing his unsolicited opinion on some dumb internet trend or social issue that doesn't matter at all.
And before anyone accuses me of race-baiting or whatever, I don't dislike them purely because they're white dudes. I know there are other types of YouTube commentators. There is an alternative subgenre of YouTube commentary that's more dominated by women and gay dudes. They usually don't show their face and talk more about celebrities and their "unpopular" opinions. I also find them annoying and low effort. These guys however the ones that gain the most praise and popularity, so they're the ones I'm singling out. And they annoy me so much more than the other ones precisely because of how blind they are to their own mediocrity.
They always talk about internet "celebrities" or rant about some ~wacky SJWs~ that are easy targets, and it's always just frankly boring. I'm not against ranting or criticizing in general or in comedy, but these guys aren't even clever enough to make it funny or interesting. They all just say basically the same thing about the same topics as each other.
There are only so many times you can watch someone act incredulous at some weirdo on the internet before it gets old. Everything about them annoys me - their smug faces, condescending voices, overused editing, the fact that they actually make their living from this… These guys are always like Reddit personified.
I hate that I'm actually agreeing with Brittany Venti about something, but her video about them summed up a lot of what I feel towards commentary channels. It's a trend that can't die soon enough.

How the fuck are you going to make a post complaining about commentary YTers and then reference one of the biggest drama, coattail riding, clickbait YTers who despite everything was unsuccessful at it?
This has got to be shilling.>annoying>low effort>criticizing>smug face>covering unoriginal topic>overedited >makes her living off it
These are literally her lmao.
hate that I’m defending this fetal alcholol syndrome faced whore but I don’t think anon is agreeing with Venti’s content (bc it is shit) but more of one video she made talking abt how annoying commentary channels are - but it makes sense to point out the hypocrisy since she is everything she claims to hate
but a broken clock can be right twice a day, even if that clock claims to not be broken
Oh, I hate her too. I just came across a video of hers called "I hate commentary channels" or something and well…I don't disagree with it.
You're right that she's annoying in all the same ways but she's not nearly as popular as them so it's easier to ignore her.
I actually like throwing them on in the background while I'm drawing or something, but I agree lol. I think some people (myself included) like such channels since it kind of simulates having a friend telling you about these things. It's some parasocial bullshit since they inject some of their persona into their videos, even if it's dry.
They're like the dollar store chocolate of entertainment junk food. And story times are the walmart chocolates lol.
I do what >>377471
does of just have those videos in the bg, completely focusing on them feels like a waste of time (maybe besides Pyro's gaming vids and older TWOTIs). It's also fucking annoying that when something happens, they all instantly release a vid on it like vultures flocking in and obviously cover the same exact things, like recently with 4 belle delphine vids released within one week (WillNE, Memulous, ImAllexx, Pyro). It is bit funny htough when there are "dry" commentary periods and they start covering beauty community drama like I don't think any of them have used moisturiser once let alone make-up kek

watching a documentary about the dupoint scandal and i'm disgusted at these two parents who decided to have a kid when they were told there's a 50% chance the baby will be born with teflon in its blood and have massive facial deformities like the father.
all i can think is how fucking dare you decide to chance 50% of exposing a child to that. exposing a child to a dangerous chemical in the blood and a lifelong deformity just because you want to. why not adopt???
maybe i'm overreacting but i feel like it's so disgusting and selfish
I have a huge amount of sympathy for celebrities and I think they live awful, oppressive, extremely stressful lives. We all know that money and nice things don't guarantee happiness, so even though they're rich and privilged, I still feel bad for them. The people who are supposed to protect and care for them, dehumanize the shit out of them, and this isn't even getting started on child celebrities. I imagine that most of them have been sexually coerced and raped and abused in other ways. I mean, imagine how stressed out you'd be if millions of people were eagerly awaiting your mental breakdown and basically actively cheering it on. When I think about celebrities like Britney Spears, Courtney Stodden, Anna Nicole Smith, Justin Bieber etc, I just feel an extreme, deep sadness.
inb4 "but they CHOSE that lifestyle!!" okay? so did a surgeon, but I still feel bad for surgeons who work grueling 80 hour weeks and get traumarized when patients die on their operating table
completely with you on this. I think it's just bad for the mind to be exposed to millions and billions of people for a long time with your personality attached to a performance you have to keep up. Staying grounded and moving away from the limelight if necessary must be hard as fuck. Money supposedly making all the downsides better my ass. There is just a ton of pressure on celebs and how don't you lose yourself in that persona?Partners often love the idea of them or simply the money and fame. People latch on to them. Lots of families behind a celeb must be awful as fuck. And also, as a celeb you might just turn into a total asshole because people around you sometimes only care about your performance and blow your ego up.
Not saying this is true for all celebs but the challenges that come with that lifestyle are crazy.
I have a lot of respect for those who stay sane and grounded and keep some privacy and even make use of their fame for good causes. I also have a lot of sympathy for troubled celebs or even the assholes because that just comes natural under those circumstances. I can't say I'd be a stable or good person if I were famous.
Yep, and I've known just as many gay dudes to grope a chick's ass and boobs and then say "it's okay because I'm gay!"
No it's fucking not.
Worse than straight men, really? I'd rather a guy who isn't attracted to me think my vag is gross than a man who is attracted to me think I'm a subhuman walking fuckhole/womb the way most of them do.
I don't care if lesbians think dick is gross either. And I can understand if they overcompensate meanly for many years of being expected to like genitals they just don't. It could be a lot worse than something so petty.
>>378111>I'd have killed myself like 6 years ago
I think you would've just left your abusive
caveman husband instead. I think most people would. Everyone makes fun of Taylor's appearance but she's way out of Grundle's league and could easily find a cuter, more sane boyfriend even as a single mom.
Cats are the incarnation of evil. They are vicious, selfish, sadistic, needy arseholes which have somehow, as a species, convinced millions of educationally subnormal human beings to give them water, food, shelter and adoration in exchange for their deigning to grace the aforementioned idiots with their physical proximity every now and then.
If it were up to me, every domesticated cat worldwide would be rounded up and airlifted to an appropriately imposing and predator-heavy habitat such as the Serengeti where the little shits could spend the last few weeks of their lives learning about the harsh realities of the nature they thought they'd escaped for good, before being torn apart by hyenas or succumbing to some especially painful and disfiguring parasitic infestation.
In the absence of this wet dream's coming true, however, I'll have to content myself with rewatching the LiveLeak video of the deranged Indian man eating a cat alive, and reminiscing happily about the time a deeply troubled pupil in the care of the Special Educational Needs unit where I used to work killed the school cat with a lathe.

Do you see copious amounts of copypasta and shitposting here?
No, you don't. Learn to take a hint, retard.
I don't know to which extent this counts as an "unpopular" opinion nor do I know if this has been posted before so bear with me, but I think drug glorification culture and this trend of parading drug use so casually is fucking retarded and irresponsible. doing drugs recreationally in general is something I find retarded and unappealing, i tried weed last year just to see what the fuss was all about and it was pretty meh. I don't judge my friends who do recreational drugs nor do I preach to them but i still think it's moronic and basic to act like doing drugs is such a fun and cool activity.
weedfags are always reeeing when you try to tell them that even if weed isn't as bad as say, cocaine, it's still a drug and it's still somewhat harmful for your system. people now think that smoking weed is a whole ass personality trait that makes them seem "chill", interesting or appealing, but in reality parading something like that to the public makes you the opposite, it makes you look stupid and vapid and very basic imho. if you like smoking it that's fine, you do you, but it's not an obscure or interesting habit that makes you appealing, you're not suddenly special and yoonique bc you smoke a blunt.
also people really are out here sperging about weed all day every day (a few lolcows come to mind) acting like it's not an addiction. because they do know addiction is bad and harmful but they won't admit it bc you lose clout if you say something bad about weed now i guess, don't want to look like an old grandpa for dating to have an original thought and realize that hey maybe this little drug habit of mine isn't as good for me as I was made to believe it was.

There's a lot of darkness in the LGBT community that goes unaddressed because most people are too much on the 'gay rights' bandwagon
There's a high proportion of homosexuals suffering from the toxic culture that exists in large portions of the gay community. The average homosexual man suffers from a form of Don Giovannism and it's not at all uncommon for gay men to rack up over 1000 sexual partners, most of these being one time affairs. Illicit and anonymous gay sex is extremely common and normal for homosexual men, and much of this is unsafe, unprotected sex. This is basically the sole cause of the community's excessively high STD rate. The homosexual nightlife community is overindulgent on drugs and needles just as it is on sex, and much of this is again, done unsafely. Sexual abuse is extremely common and predatory behavior goes unreported and unenforced because there's just not the mainstream knowledge of how common homosexual rapists are, the average person these days just thinks that all homosexuals are the cuddly happy guys as portrayed by the media.
Most people think that the stereotype of gay men being sex crazed perverts is just a reactionary, christian talking point. And will dismiss it as such. And while it's not fair to say that ALL HOMOSEXUALS have the problems I outlined above, there is this dark underbelly to the homosexual community that people just refuse to address anymore.
And there's also a really sick subtype of homosexual, the type I think is most likely to sexually abuse children. He dresses in baggy clothes, usually shorts and oversized T-shirts. He has a childish sense of humor that resembles something of an adam sandler skit, putting on funny voices and just generally…Acting how I imagine he perceives 11 year old boys to be. He will almost never speak to women, is extremely misogynistic and has an extreme narcissism about him. I'm not sure if I'm reaching, but I've encountered this exact type of homosexual man several times in my life and one is close to the family. But they're one of the few types of people in life that weirds me out.
My biggest issue is that you’re not allowed to mention the huge amount of child sexual abuse rampant in the gay community, and how a lot of these boys then even become gay from a sort of trauma from it - plenty will have first been introduced to homosexuality via rape and/or molestation and grooming, and this issue will keep going on if no one is even allowed to talk about it. It’s an absurdly high rate considering how small of a fraction of the populace they are
People also need to acknowledge the fact that domestic violence is high within the lesbian community.

This might not be too controversial here but I'm amazed at the amount of mindless consumption in nerd culture and how people will throw their money at anything that's labeled with their favorite characters. Star Wars fans in particularly bad about it. I feel like every super big fan of Star Wars I've ever met has just been some bland ass milquetoast shell of a person. So many people conflate liking stuff with personality traits.
Consumerism feeds in very well to nerd culture, especially if it says something like ‘limited edition’.
People love their shiny pebbles
It's not really an unpopular opinion these days, hating on even marvel is becoming mainstream, although marvel and disney maintain a cult-like control over their core base.
I remember onetime reading a semi-marxist analysis of 'geek culture', and how capitalism pushes and indoctrinates people to be childish and frivolous like a child to increase consumer spending. It really makes sense to me, because all of the people into this crap seem to be living in perpetual childhood. The idea of a proper adult in mind and spirit buying a Funko toy is ludicrous.

She probably does, but who gives a fuck you are anonymous.
I'm sure there are tons of farmers on here with even more cognitive problems than her, but you don't see them shitting up the meta thread.
the perpetrator of the orlando massacre was an isis terrorist, it caused massive outrage from the general public and there were several charities to help the victims
' families meanwhile if the same thing happened anywhere else than a first world country, like somewhere in the middle east or africa no one, including the government and courts would give a fuck but okay. gay hate crimes in first world countries are way, waaaay lower than anywhere else. gays in the west are extremely privileged, protected by the law, can get married, can have a normal life, homophobes in the west get their careers ruined. they are not oppressed.
It's going to take some years for people to adjust to having these rights and being accepted as regular people. Eventually they'll feel comfortable and not persecuted so they'll relax on the IM QUEER shit and develop other interests. Also gay marriage itself was a very recent thing in the grand scheme of things (2015 federally, come the fuck on) unless you're a child that doesn't know what it was like a few decades ago where "gay" was an honest derogatory term and even before that when gay people were getting serious hate crimes committed against them. People pass their traumas down and it takes a few generations for these things to heal.
Besides there still are
pockets of the country where being gay is very much a negative thing and most families are more "tolerant" than actually accepting. i.e. they won't try to murder a gay neighbor but will flip a tit if their kid is gay. Guess what, that kid is going to have issues and they will probably not feel safe even later in life bc these traumas absolutely stay with them.
You sound like people that claim racism is totally gone now that the ~~~laws~~~ protect black people. History just doesn't work that way, babe.

YouTube keeps recommending me a video of Jay Leno almost being bitten by an alligator, that Steve Irwin brings on, and it's made me think animal experts/handlers should stop doing that. I love animals, and I loved Steve Irwin, but when you watch those segments on talk shows where they bring animals out you can tell the animals are stressed and scared. And the host freaks out and laughs, and the audience laughs, and the animal is trying to get away. And then they are rudely grabbed or shoved into a bag or box and dragged away back stage. How long do they have to stay in those bags, or boxes, or small cages back stage, being scared of all the lights and noise? It doesn't seem fair or safe, to the animals or the people, like the hosts who can be bitten or scratched by an animal they have no idea how to handle. Also extra unpopular opinion: Steve Irwin was too reckless with a lot of animals, and put his infant son in needless danger with the crocodile. Him being killed by an animal came as no surprise to me. Still miss him though. RIP Steve.
Radfem comments outside of the radfem thread being a bannable offense might be worth pursuing. I can go to meta and maybe bring that up today. It has reached racebait proportions in how often it happens and how much it messes up a discussion.

Moving the cat isn’t training it tho.
Use deterrents and rewards like training literally anything/anyone. Double sided tape on surfaces you want the cat off, give treats for doing things like touching your hand with her paw if you say high-five. Actual training.

Grass type Pokemon are the best! There are so many beautiful designs and they have the coolest moves. I wish I could be an aroma lady or something.
Fairy type is lame and tranny tier.
can we please stop calling typical girlish coded thinks tranny tier, trannylike etc. Not only it's often spergy like in context of fucking pokemon games (what does gender crit worldview have to do with them?), it's also insulting toward women who do like those feminine aesthetics and we should not hand them over to trannies that aproppriate our existence.
Criticize fairy mons for being too cutesy but not tranny like.

No reasonable person cares about tranny farts in the wind. Nobody out of sjw/tranny circlejerk looks at Sylveon or Clefairy and thinks 'yep, it's a trans character'. Don't treattranny wishes as fact. Nothing tranny about fairy pokemon, thigh highs or cat ears (as cringet as they might be!).
They are imitating us, doesn't mean feminity belongs to them.

People mostly shit on grass type starters, which is sad because snivy and chikorita are underratted as hell. Of course I'm not that into the fandom part of pokemon, so I don't really see it.
But fairy type pokemon are great, Moonblast is the one of my favorite newish moves.
- men hate them because they’re pathetic enough to fall for it
- women hate them because men hate them
I used to scoff at my parents and not understand how they couldn't see the fun in pokemon, but as I got older I started to see how anything past silver/gold drifted into nonsense. It was neverending. The pokemon got even more nonsensical over the years and I couldn't follow unless I literally bought games and merch.
I finally understand why my parents rolled eyes so much over it when I was a kid. Props to the creators though, the cash cow is super effective
>>380077>women hate them because men hate them
Many of them happen to possess unstable and entitled personalities which makes them insufferable to know and be friends with beyond a superficial level. Most anything they do is always for attention or as a means to make money, because their living entirely revolves around creating a specific image and narrative. The profession attracts a lot of self centered narcs willing to use people and throw others under the bus. There's a lot to be said about streamers who contact friends just to link to their Twitch and ask for donations for no product or service that isn't already being done for free by millions.
At least the ones with day jobs are a bit more humble.

Mugman is a lot cuter than Cuphead! His blue color is cool too, I wish playing as Mugman was an option on solo.
I'm pretty feminine and as much as I try not to and be mindful of it, I do like feminine things a lot, but you guys are trying high key to get insulted if youre super offended that people call out being super feminine on an imageboard as being tranny tier. Being/talking about super fem shit on an imageboard is questionable bc it's caricature tier and imo feminine women that aren't participating in upholding a caricature too (see: shuwu) don't typically flaunt in feminine things in a tranny way. It's different. >>380086
I so agree. Disregarding the video games (which are also boring), I never understood the appeal of card games anyways. Wtf was ever entertaining about them?
All of this. I can't stand the "jealous cunts" narrative and I can only repeat what you said. Keeping up a profession like a titty twitch streamer requires a certain type of antisocial personality that is willing to go to disgusting lengths to keep their name making money for doing nothing else but "entertaining". >>380086
Honestly I still find the 2 first generations enjoyable as an adult but they took all the challenge out of the games and removed the dark elements that made the world interesting. The cutesy fashion shows and whatever customization the games have now replaced story and gameplay.

This isn't "brave" or "stunning". Men will always look stupid in womens clothes. That's why men wearing women's clothes is often seen in comedy. It just looks fucking ridiculous. Men get asspats for the simplest shit.

thank you. that silhouette is so retarded. he looks like a very stupid velvet napkin or a cake. society needs to understand that men have terrible legs, and terrible proportions in general, and there's nothing wrong with them wearing androgynous clothes in feminine or flashy/flamery styles (like pic related), but just wearing dresses or skirts looks absolutely stupid 9 times out of 10. their bodies are just not meant for it.

That viral newsbait going around about kids viewing videos telling them how to kill themselves is absolutely the fault of the parents.
Strange how most children born before 2000 managed to survive without constant access to streamed, autoplaying internet but suddenly dumbass parents can't parent anymore without handing their kid a tablet?
I'm sick of hearing about this non-news because parents are too chickenshit to deal with their brat's crying fits and tantrums to protect them from adult media, and are incapable of doing common sense shit like not giving them unsupervised access to it in the first place.

that dress was incredibly stiff. i remember looking at it and i was wondering who the fuck picked that out for him in the first place? he looked uncomfortable.
like i don't care if a man wears feminine clothing, as long as he recognizes it will never turn him into a woman. it's just a garment. i don't care if a woman wears masculine clothing either, even though it's basically common.

Chihuahuas are literally my dream dog, they're tiny so I can take them everywhere with me, they're cute so watching them make me happy, they're sweet and easy to train, they can be taken for long walks and they make tiny poop so I won't ever have to pick up a huge piece of dog shit.
I want to adopt either a chihuahua or a Maltese.
Hard disagree (as you can imagine).>liking cutesy Pokemon created with little girls in mind is tranny tier
Sorry, but I will never get this. Next someome will say that collecting vintage My Little Pony is 'brony tier' instead of spergy or, you know, American housewife like. Cause they've been doing it for years before male cartoon horse fetishists were a thing.
I know I am repeating myself but stop handling our things to men just cause they rub their dirty hands all over them. It's exactly what they want us to do.
Good thing I no longer run into psycho trannies online and don't give a fuck about their delusional opinions.
RE: Card games. I also do not enjoy them too much (though I like to collect some pretty Pokemon ones), but they give your brain a lot to think about and some people enjoy it. First you have to create the deck and then you have to keep thinking about the best strategy during the game, planning not only the next move but also for the next turn, consider the opponent's cards and avoid misplays.
I find all of this extremely exhausting, but my bf loves it and I can see why. It's a bit like chess in that regard, except you have so much more varied chess pieces, it's crazy.
I mean, you could say any junk food is a waste of calories and should be banned. Just because you don't like them doesn't mean they're the WORST thing out there.

>>381473>And YA never existed before capitalism. Do people think there was YA lit in the USSR? You gotta be fucking kidding me.
Do you mean like… YA as the American genre or books for teens in general?
Because if the second one, you are wrong.
People are moronic and seem to confuse basic welfare for communism.
The countries with the best health care are surprise! capitalist. The world works on a currency based system for bartering. A capital system aims to maximise capital potential for progress and resources. Its not a perfect system because of the inequalities but you don't fix that by making everyone a fucking communists you enact welfare systems to redistribute capital to the people to promote spending. All a fucking government is is the body that controls the countries budget/capital for resources.
It's absolutely embarrassing for someone on a smart phone to preach about the benefits of communism.
One thing that baffles me is my friend who is a Chinese international student is so against capitalism. I know all of the effects of capitalism in China haven't all been positive. But I think she believes that if we werne't living in a capitalist society graduate schools would be throwing money at her to pursue a humanities degree or something. >>381483
I'm not an expert but I feel like while books for teens have always exist, I think the YA industry is something different. Including the need to specifically market books as being for "young adults" in general.

I can understand people being upset because their own pibble hasn't killed their children yet, but they have to understand that the breed is legitimately dangerous, their strength coupled with their pain intolerance is something that should be regulated. The owners should have to hold a pitbull licence.
It's so demeaning when these trailer trash pibble parents post their stupid pits with their newborns or with other, smaller animals. 'woah so dangerous xd", yeah, I'm sure a lot of the pit owners who had their children and other pets killed or mauled by their dogs felt the same, you daft cunt.
An eurofag here who lives next to Russia and still remembers the effects of the Soviet Union and knows how fucked up communism is in practice: fuck everyone who was born in a capitalist society and demands communism, they literally have no idea what they're asking for. Capitalism isn't flawless but there's a reason why so many economically successful and happy countries are capitalist. People need and demand freedom which they can't get in a communist society. You can't eat your cake and have it too, you're either absolutely miserable in a communist shithole where everyone is demotivated because they're artificially kept down (except for the state elite living in luxury of course), or you're in a capitalist system where you need to go through effort to secure a middle class life style, but also have the option to aim higher if you've given the chance.

I used to think that it was nurture over nature for pits, until just this week. I dog sit for a family friend who has a pitbull & he's always been real sweet with me. Until literally last night I was playing with him outside and he got aggressive out of nowhere and bit my jacket and yanked me to the floor. Thank God he didn't bite me, and I was able to get out of my jacket and back inside. His owner will be back tomorrow but that was the first time I've seen real aggression from him. Scared the shit outta me and ripped my jacket apart.
Sage for blogposting
NTAYRT but this happens all the time with pits. They've been bred to activate attack mode when they're overstimulated. That's why pit attacks come as a surprise, they're sweet dogs until it happens. Other dog breeds might bite once to defend their territory or to defend themselves, but pits will often gravely maul people. I love dogs to death but I'm fucking terrified of pitbulls and think the whole breed should be illegal to keep outside without a muzzle. The people who defend them are often like people described here >>381544
, either white trash tough guys or people who want to feel powerful and persecuted for taking care of the poow widdle misunderstood pit babies.
I have no experience with pits, they're not a common breed, but is it true they don't display the usual signs of aggression (tail up, showing teeth etc)?
This. The American Dream borderlines on being a myth. The majority of Americans struggle financially and it's not because ~they're not working hard enough~. Our system pretends it's a meritocracy, but it's been proving countless times in countless ways that it only is on paper. Very few people actually make it to the upper class if they weren't already born in it. The reality is that higher class people will always have advantages over you. The rich can just buy their kid's way into the top colleges, taking spots from more qualified applicants. Most people can't afford college to begin with and if they go end up in debt for most of their lives. Businesses will always give higher jobs to people based on their connections rather than their merits. And don't even get me started on the health care system. Get sick or hurt and it can completely ruin your financial health for the rest of your life.
Also, don't forget that American politics are entirely set up to prioritize the needs of corporations over the people. This isn't even thinly veiled anymore. Our country literally let's people die and the planet get destroyed because a handful of companies are paying our politicians to let them so they can make more money with no fucks given to human suffering.
I'm absolutely against communism, but it doesn't have to be communist or capitalist. As America has proven, capitalism is pretty fucking horrible.
>>381556>I love dogs to death but I'm fucking terrified of pitbulls and think the whole breed should be illegal to keep outside without a muzzle.
Hard to take anyone's opinion on this topic seriously when they don't even know that pit bulls aren't a breed. "Pitbull" refers to any mix of a number of different breeds. That's part of why their temperaments and physical traits vary so wildly. It's also why the idea of breed restrictions on them is so ludicrous. You're basically saying "no mix involving any of a dozen different breeds should be allowed outside without a muzzle".
That being said, as someone whose worked in shelters and has had experience with many pitbulls, I do agree that people need to stop painting them all out to be flawless angel babies. Out of the dozens I've dealt with, only one was sketchy, but the owners very much ignored the red flags and made weak excuses for her problematic
behavior to the point where I was amazed there had been no serious incident with her by the time she died. If you suggested she was potentially dangerous, they would act like you were an oppressive monster. Luckily they had the sense to take advice not to have her around children thank god.
Still, the number of attacks by pit bulls compared to how many there are is far too tiny to justify banning them or forcing special regulations on them. The problem isn't pit bulls themselves. It's the ridiculous lack of regulations concerning dogs. Anyone can just get a dog and treat it however the fuck they want if no one sees to report it (not like dogs can call animal protective services) or be a backyard breeder. While pitbulls have the highest attack count, most large breeds (especially ones for protection) have the potential to be extremely dangerous if in the wrong hands and do have a sizeable attack/fatality count themselves. This is because sadly anyone can get one and train and/or breed them improperly or abuse them.
>>381618>Any temperament trait
Calm down with your baseless projection. Notice I don't specify "negative", dear. This includes positive as well. Also, I'm fully willing to read whatever evidence you provide that debunks the fact I stated.
Also>comparing people who like pitbulls to flat earthers

Can we stop arguing about pitbulls now? Also, I feel like this is like the 5th thread I've seen get derailed by people complaining about pitbulls in the last few months.
Kay, but how many people actually do that? You think your dad and the top 1% are the only Americans who work hard while the rest of the 99% just twiddle their thumbs all day?
See, this is the problem with people who buy the American Dream myth. You cling to the minority of examples of people lucky enough to have the system working out for them and dismiss the rest. It's like you ignore the fact that "1%" is literally in the damn name.

Veins are super scary, they remind me that we are just sacks of organs and I don't like that. I don't get it either

Seriously. This really annoys me.

I think they just wanted to believe that retarded "dolls are creepy/scary" meme. How can you look at 99% of dolls and think they're creepy or scary? Pic related is the homeless doll that I'm surprised never got the recognition Blythe did and was discontinued almost immediately after manufacture

One thing that kind of bothers me about isekai fans is that they tout their series as being anything above a self-insert fantasy. Isekai is on the same level as battle-harems but fans of it seem to think otherwise.
Some guy I know recommended Goblin Slayer, Re:Zero, etc popular isekai to me and I really don't know why. I'm definitely not the target audience of this stuff. I would never recommend something like an otome game to a man, but fans of harem isekais seem to believe everyone can enjoy them.
Kinda on the same topic
The Walking Dead was never about the zombies, everyone who started reading/watching TWD for the zombies and the gore galore, and are now complaining about "too much human drama" are completely following the wrong series. The Walking Dead was always, ALWAYS about the people and their struggles and drama. I really enjoy medias that focus on the POST-apocalyptic parts. Anyone who complains about the TV-version of TWD dragging on and being too long has never read the comics, and they're completely missing the point of TWD.

Anon you’re making me hungry for some good BBQ ribs. Yum yum yum.
But I do agree, I even find some grilled foods obnoxious. I like certain things grilled, like ribs, steak, corn on the cob, tortillas, and salsa with roasted tomatoes and chili. Anything else if poorly done just ends up tasting like smoke and propane.
Can't stand the several people I've known who see dolls in a store and blow that shit embarrassingly out of proportion. I've literally had friends say "Get me away from that shit" or hide behind me to not look at the doll. How pathetic can you be? Its not cute or funny.
Same goes for the bad horror trope of little kids being weirdos or kids singing/saying anything "creepy." Kids are not creepy ever, they're just annoying and their singing is grating. I can't imagine keeping up a social facade of pretending to be scared of this eye-rolling garbage, esp those who are so extra about it.

The same people who are creeped put by dolls/clowns usually fucking LOVE zombies too. Like a dead human, come back to life that eats other humans for food and actually looks grotesque, is not scary at all compared to two things originally meant for children's entertainment? Makes no sense.
My experience has been just like >>382056
in that if I just say I’m American, people will typically ask where in the states I’m from. Sometimes it’s also in kind of a “Well, no duh, but which state?” tone. My accent doesn’t match what they think someone from this state sounds like, so it’s always a kind of pleasant interaction. Idk, I’ll ask people from Germany or France especially where they’re from because I’ve been all over and it’s just kinda nice. I like small talk kek.
I noticed this too.
In the friend finder thread on cgl you were asked which country you're from - and of course every murican answers TX, MI, MS, MN,… I mean on the one hand most europeans know at least the most "famous" states, but nevertheless it's rude and entitled to just expect everybody to know and cater to you.
No matter whether they're conservative or liberal, they're a hivemind of "We're the most important!". Something I've also noticed is that Americans love to ask your opinion on Trump (and get mad if you're "too stupid" to have the same opinion as them) meanwhile many of them wouldn't even know who the leaders of most european states are. Why should we care so much about your country?
It's the same here on lc as well, people from all over the world will say which country they're from, Americans will name the state or even the city.
And the simple reason some europeans ask "which state?" is obviously because they're proud of their knowledge.
I'd say most anime fans (at least that I see on reddit and 4chan) know that there is a massive influx of shitty isekai and are fully aware it's just for self insertion. But yes, they do think utter trash like Re:Zero is above it. And yeah men really don't notice how much they are being directly pandered to and how uncomfortable it is for women, they're so used to it that it's just normal and to be expected.
I don't know how unpopular this opinion would be here because I think R:Z also got some women convinced it was good, but fucking hell I DESPISED it. Men were completely blinded to the mediocrity because they loved Rem completely discarding her personality to devote her entire self to some tracksuit wearing loser. She was almost cool at first and then got progressively less and less cool the more she loved him, because apparently the best thing a woman can be is an empty shell aside from her feelings for someone. But also I was mad because the series itself was just bad. Cheesy, generic villains, a boring fucking harem with an even more boring MC, unimaginative world building, uncreative fights, etc. I can barely remember shit about it except that I hated it and I hate how blinded men are by cute girls.
"But it's a deconstruction!" is the rallying cry of every Re:Zero fanboy who thinks it's not shitty wish fulfillment just because the protagonist gets sad.
They're not even using the term deconstruction right, they're using the stupid TVTropes definition which just means "A work of fiction where bad things have consequences." As if that's so unique and special it needs its own special term.
americans absolutely love to claim that the united states are as diverse as the whole of europe too, just because america is big.
america certainly is very big and texas is different to new england is different to hawaii, but the difference between sweden and ukraine, or spain and finland, or ireland and turkey, is much much bigger than the difference between any two american states. different languages, different cultures, different foods, different climates, different customs, different histories.
Germany was not mentioned in my post, so why did you quote me…?
Or is this supposed to be satire?
I'm an American who hates America, but you people are just being fucking stupid.
>/cgl/ is majority American>the whole fucking point of the thread is to make friends>America is larger than the entire continent of Europe
A person from NYC and a person from LA are further apart than countries at the polar opposite ends of Europe. So yeah, many people don't want to bother befriending people that are literally further from them than the span of the entire European continent.
Also, the different regions within America are VASTLY different culturally to the point where they basically are different nations. And geographically, as a previous anon showed, the country is bigger than your entire continent. Plenty of states are bugger than many European countries (a few larger than all of them). So yeah, this is the dumbest thing to get salty about.

But most of Europe uses the same currency and plenty of different countries throughout the world speak the same language as others. Also, sure we have the federal government, but most laws are done state by state. There are many things that are legal or no big deal in some states, but will get you decades in jail in others.>>382816
Probably with that specific example, but there's some on the other side of that coin as well. For example, a Hawaiian vs someone from Texas would most likely have far less in common than someone from England vs someone from France.
>>382887>Probably with that specific example, but there's some on the other side of that coin as well. For example, a Hawaiian vs someone from Texas would most likely have far less in common than someone from England vs someone from France.
this is retarded, anon.
brits and french people speak different languages, have been on opposite sides of multiple wars, have different national histories, different currencies, different governments, different laws, and different cultural and societal norms on a level that far exceeds the difference between hawaiian and texan norms. this is exactly what earlier posters were talking about when they said americans are ignorant about how different various european countries are to each other, you realize.
Russia is almost twice the size of the U.S (9m kmsq vs 17m kmsq).
So you do agree that Moscow and Magadan are more different than Hawaii and Texas, right?
Ease of moving isn't even part of the conversation though. It's literally just what they have in common.
I'm well aware of the fact that France and England are two completely different countries. My point is that some states also might as well be totally different countries. Also, the societal norms in HI and Texas actually are more different than France vs. England. TX is shamelessly racist, sexist, homophobic, and conservative Christian. This worldview is not socially acceptable in HI. France and England have way closer political values than these two states do. To deny that TX and HI are completely different places with completely different cultures and have nothing in common besides speaking English and using USD, then you're just as culturally ignorant as the Americans you bitch about. Ffs Hawaii is an island with it's own race.
Also, the whole point of this conversation is that Europeans bitching about people from the US specifying state when asked where they're from is dumb. I'm not gonna bother anymore with debating these unrelated specifics.
They don't realize there are more places in Europe than Britain (oh sorry, England lmao), France, Germany, Spain and Sweden.
Most Europeans I know can name at least 15 U.S states, partly because every American we talk to insists on telling us exactly which state they're from. Most Americans can only name the countries above (+ Italy and Ireland if they're smart).
As a slavfag I'm really tired of Americans thinking Europe = the UK, France and Germany. There are like 50 fucking countries on this continent and the majority of them have their own, independent cultures, languages, politics, geographical differences and so on. A lot of them don't even belong to the germanic or romance language families. The difference between the US states is nothing compared to something like France and Romania or Italy and Finland. >>382913
>>382914>TX is shamelessly racist, sexist, homophobic, and conservative Christian - and I don't want to be associated with them and therefore I try my very best to convince stupid foreigners that actually we're totally different countries, even moreso than Europe
We simply define the term 'culture' differently.
Things like your political orientation are not considered a culture outside of America.
The north of Germany is protestant, meanwhile the south is strictly catholic. According to your logic that would mean that they're nothing alike and should be considered 2 different countries too…
That's simply not how that whole thing works, anon.
In a way it's obvious that Americans are simply jealous.
The smugness you're exhibiting despite your ignorance is so fucking gross. get over yourself. I'm not going to derail the thread further by wasting time spoonfeeding you information about the different cultures between the states when you can just Google it.
But seriously, please educate yourself and look this shit up because by laughing off the idea there's cultural differences between the states, including the example you just gave sarcastically, you are literally the exact same as ~those ignorant Americans~.

>the amount of secondhand embarrassment I feel for my retarded compatriot
I don't think they're jealous, Americans tend to genuinely believe they live in the greatest country on earth. They genuinely do believe that the difference between say, Missouri and New England, is miles greater than the difference between Sweden and the Czech Republic.
Muricanon is just retarded and sheltered, that's all.
Not wanting to waste my time writing you a thesis when this information is already all out there doesn't translate to you being right. It translates to you not knowing how to use Google.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culture_of_the_United_States
There is a Wikipedia article for "culture of" every US state. If you Google "culture of -insert state or major city here-" you'll find tons of material.
Also, Utah and Idaho aren't as well known for their art and culture as a lot of other areas in the US. Which I'm pretty sure you know (or at least I certainly hope you do otherwise you're just proving your ignorance further) and were just using as examples in a weak attempt to poke fun at the idea of American areas having a rich and diverse culture. If you're genuinely interested in learning about this stuff, I recommend starting with NYC, LA, the Bay Area, Boston, the Colorado Mountains, Hawaii, Florida, Louisiana and Vermont. At this point, I have given you plenty of research material and you have no excuse to pretend my refusal to completely spoonfeed you confirms American cities and states don't have their own culture. Now there's no point arguing about it anymore. I genuinely hope you enjoy researching this stuff and rethink having such an embarassingly smug attitude on subjects you haven't looked into at all in the future.
you seem confused, anon. that or you're just backpeddling furiously.
nobody said american states don't have their own cultural quirks.
what people said is the difference between your average two american states is not greater than the difference between your average two european countries. you furiously disagreed, and that's what people took issue with. now you're trying to turn it into "american state do TOO have a culture!" when literally nobody said they didn't.
are you bad at reading or just trying to backpeddle now you realized your original argument made you look dumb?
I noticed you never replied to me pointing out Russia is much bigger than the U.S, so let me ask you again.
Is the cultural difference between Moscow and Magadan greater than the difference between Hawaii and Texas?
Holy projection Batman.
>what people said is the difference between your average two american states is not greater than the difference between your average two european countries. you furiously disagreed, and that's what people took issue with.
I never said that at all. I said in SOME instances, states are so radically different culturally that they can be more different than certain pairings in Europe and provided an example. I never said that was the norm.
>now you're trying to turn it into "american state do TOO have a culture!" when literally nobody said they didn't.
Yes they did. Read the text chain.
Samefagging, but since apparently people can't follow my simple instructions to find this shit themselves…https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culture_of_Idahohttps://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culture_of_New_York_City

Interesting that the culture of the great country Idaho can be summed up in ~10 sentences…
As I said the first two times, Russia is almost twice the size of the U.S. The distance between Moscow and Madagan is far greater than it is between Hawaii and Texas.
I have never, ever, ever seen a Russian try to argue that Russia has more cultural diversity than the U.S.
I literally say right here >>382962
that Idaho isn't known for it's rich culture. Try harder, guys.
Actually don't because this whole argument is absolutely retarded and I'm don't participating in it. Now let's stop derailing the thread with this dumb shit.
rabbits on the other hand, make bad pets. they're very cute, but they're smelly and messy and they destroy everything, including their own hutches. most of them don't particularly like being picked up and cuddled since they're such nervous animals. cute to look at, terrible to keep as pets.
I swear people who base their personality around which state or city they live in are dumb. I'm from Burgerland too, it's basically high school spirit 2.0.
Also the ones who have to say which percentage of whatever country their ancestors come from are dumb as well.
tbh I don't see the problem with buying from a breeder if they're reputable and ethical and the breed isn't some abomination unto god like a pug or a stupid designer dog. with purebreds you know exactly what kind of health and behavioral issues you're getting into, and puppies are a clean slate while you have no idea what sort of history a rescue dog might have. while obviously rescuing a shelter dog is ideal, it's not necessarily the best choice for an individual, and I think people should take that into consideration before screeching how you're a terrible person if you buy a purebred.
on the other hand, buying a purebred cat is fucking STUPID because 10/10 it's going to just be a household pet and you can get a shelter cat cheap as chips. there is no reason, ever, to buy a cat from a breeder unless all you care about is how it looks.
If people were to stop buying from fancy breeders there’d only be unethically bred dogs with complete disregard for temperament left and a loft of breeds would die off. I think this is something a lot of people who reeeee at those who purchase from a reputable breeder rather than adopt from a shelter always seem to forget
Plus, plenty of people may want a very specific breed of dog for work related reasons; farming, herding, seeing eye dogs, police dogs to name a few, so purebred breeders are a must to continue supporting
This is EXACTLY why the "amerimutt" meme triggers

Where I live is popular to make your parents raise your kids. Not enough eyes to roll. If people want kids they should take responsibility for them.
>>383192> I guess this is the modern plague for population control
I wish, instead the number just keeps growing. The annoying people that you mention, which is probably just a subreddit where you base your opinion of, are obviously in the minority.
The majority keeps breeding. If only women kept their legs shut and men kept their dicks in their pants, the world would be a much better place.
Alas, it's populated with filthy breeders spreading pollution, waste, and damaging the weakening ecosystem. How many species have gone extinct because of us? I look at the numbers and I hope that there's a new plague that can finally end us all.
I love the way people who want kids/don't see anything wrong with a fast rate of human births see like six people online talk about not liking kids and act like it's "everyone!!!!" and comparable to a plague. Right. 150-200 plants, animals, insects, etc, go extinct every 24 hours (https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/08/17/un-environment-programme-_n_684562.html
) thanks to human activity, and while we continue to very quickly degrade and irredeemable pollute the life support system our ever increasing population completely relies on, but a few people who don't want children is chalked up to be a majority comparable to a plague just because everyone insists on comparing birth rates to post WW2, a time that should never serve as a fucking baseline, kek.
i'm posting on lolcow, what does that tell you?
though, when i look up "who invented the internet" google spits out robert e. kahn as the first answer. maybe we're all a little retarded here, after all.
South Park isn't funny either.
And The Simpsons hasn't been funny for a decade but that's a popular opinion.
Tim Berners-Lee invented the first web browser, the internet itself as a network of communication existed before that, but primarily as a means for businesses to communicate internally
-Britfag who has see TBL speak and he always denies "inventing the internet". I believe it was invented by even less famous scientists in the 70s
>The first message was sent over the ARPANET in 1969 from computer science Professor Leonard Kleinrock's laboratory at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to the second network node at Stanford Research Institute (SRI).https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Internet
It's the foundation>The Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) was developed by Robert E. Kahn and Vint Cerf in the 1970s and became the standard networking protocol on the ARPANET, incorporating concepts from the French CYCLADES project directed by Louis Pouzin.
The internet is a group effort between inventors, including those who made ARPANET, TCP/IP and the first browser. Hence why there is no fixed answer to that question. But we can say it involved Americans and Europeans in different measures.
I'm totally "pro-childfree" But I don't have any good or ethical reasons lol. I'm actually pretty ok with interacting with real children, because I'm stupid just like them.
I don't want people to have kids because I'm selfish. I don't really care about the environment unless it's directly affecting me. I just want more space, food, and money for me and my big ego.
>>383198>populated with filthy breeders
Well done dehumanising the majority of the human race. It’s not like wanting to reproduce is instinctual or anything
To both you anons chimping out, fertility rates are falling at a rapid pace and they continue to do so, at this rate once the baby boomers finally die we don’t have nearly enough children being born to replace them. And we have this phenomenon over and over again, it’s just never got to quite this severity and nobody before our grandparents managed to fuck shit up quite so badly
A decline in fertility rates due to things like birth control but also the rising disgust with children is absolutely comparable to past diseases/wars/what have you in that they’re catalysts to population control, just not as severe.
>>383235>rising disgust with children
Really anon you sound like a fear monger-er. It's obviously because people are smarter and hold off on having children until they have a job/house/financial stability, and those thing are kinda expensive these days.
and what this anon says too>>383240
>>383235>To both you anons chimping out, fertility rates are falling at a rapid pace and they continue to do so, at this rate once the baby boomers finally die we don’t have nearly enough children being born to replace them. And we have this phenomenon over and over again
No, we have not had this phenomenon over and over again. There has never been such a high number of people on the planet, and each person deserves a life of dignity and comfort and modern conveniences, without the risk of spreading disease or further cutting at the support system we depend on, which is completely unachievable at anywhere near 7.6 billion people. We need far, far fewer people, not anything close to replacement rates. As I said, comparing birth rates to the baby boom is seriously warping the perception of birth rates, and that's where the claim of "collapsing fertility rates" comes from. 7.6 billion or anything close is way over carrying capacity if we intend to improve quality of life in the third and second world. Fertility rates are not as low as you think.
>A decline in fertility rates due to things like birth control but also the rising disgust with children is absolutely comparable to past diseases/wars/what have you in that they’re catalysts to population control, just not as severe.
It's nowhere near as close. This is a delusional comparison.
This. Most people I know choosing not to have kids want them, but either A) can't afford them and don't want to subject a child to growing up on poverty or B) don't want to subject them to climate change. Straight up not wanting children is in the minority. And even if if it wasn't, people shouldn't feel morally obligated to procreate if they don't want to.>>383202
Precisely, and if they really did care
about their offspring, they wouldn't decide to have them or cheer for the continuation of mankind while subjecting them to a future that is anything but bright.
People will breed regardless but if you have any common sense, would you really want your kids to grow up in a world that is going to have few natural resources (in the hands of the rich no less), high unemployment rates due to automatization, health hazardous pollution and so on?
Also, only capitalists worry about dropping birth rates. More consumers, more cheap workforce, more people getting into debt.>>383252
I also think that the loud minority of people, mainly women, are sick of being told to look forward to motherhood. And I hated and still hate people telling me to find someone and have a family because it's something you just need to do.
I see way more people insisting that having kids and a family is the proper way to do it than people being against it.
I agree, anon. I also feel like parents willfully ignore all the horrific things that can happen to their children in general. We live in a world full of predators and the rate of kids harmed by them is too high for me to feel okay bringing them into the world. Even if you're super careful, there's no guarantee it won't happen to your child. And once they're older, you can't watch them like a hawk anymore, so there's nothing you can do to lessen the chances other than give them some pepper spray and safety tips.
And predators aside, there's just a laundry list of awful shit that can go wrong and often does; car crash, illness, extreme bullying, being the target of bigotry, intense mental health issues, going through some horrifically traumatic event. The list goes on.
But people have rose tinted glasses when it comes to kids and think everything is a fairytale. They don't think about the endless possibilities they're signing them up for.
There's immigration and then there's immigration. Uncontrollable immigration from countries with a radically different culture is bound to cause tension and conflicts within the borders because it takes a few generations to assimilate newcomers. The reason ISIS got so many soldiers from wealthy first world countries is that 2nd generation immigrant kids felt out of place in the society and took their rebelling to drastic measures. People immigrating from neighboring countries with similar cultures often have little trouble gaining a visa but it isn't as popular because they often don't have the need to move out. The "let's get hundreds of thousands of people in" tactic is way too radical to ever work as a solution to repairing a warped age demographic pyramid. Treating overpopulated countries like barrels of workforce you can scoop people out of isn't a sustainable solution in any way.
There isn't a clear-cut solution to the underpopulation problem because it seems to be nature taking its course. It's expensive and takes more effort to produce children in a wealthy first world country because you don't need 12 kids working at your farm anymore. The third world countries are bound to take that course if their economy ever starts nearing first world countries.
agree. If you can't afford to pay your employees a LIVING wage, you can't afford a business. People shouldn't be barely scraping by just so that you
can be your "own boss".
There never has been, but there also wasn't really the option to opt out of it until now. Having kids throughout history was a horrible thing, but people didn't exactly have a choice. Now we do. >>383319
Yeah, and that's extremely dark and their society needs to figure that shit out. Your point?
just that the climate change and the deteriorating ecosystem isn't something that can be reversed. There won't be a happy ending.
The tensions and wars as horrible they were in the past, there existed this idea of peace and hope for a better tomorrow.
You seriously can't be using something that was in the past to compare what's going on today. The circumstances are extremely different. If you are in your 20s too, then we're going to witness the consequences of the climate change on our skin.
You keep breeding, not like it matters. What's another digit on this planet? Not like you or most people will listen or care.
The damage is already done and we're just going to exhaust all the resources that are left and exterminate what little hasn't gone extinct.
But going through all of the species we managed to bring to extinction and seeing firsthand the massive pollution just makes me wish for that to happen sooner. We don't deserve prosperity, we don't deserve this planet.
Your fears are totally valid
and you shouldn't ignore them. Don't let baby fever lead you to a selfish decision.
If you wanna be a mom that bad, there's always adoption.
True, there's no point in talking about it. There's little that we can do anyways. Even if all of the Earth's population suddenly decided to go zero waste eco-friendly lifestyle, it still wouldn't help.
I've been volunteering in shelters, nature reserves and bonding with animals. It makes you see how better they are. They have feelings, they're all unique. But they do recognize us individuals and they interact with us. They care. And all of them will disappear. All of them will suffer because of what we humans did to the planet, and there's no excuse.
I disagree that it's not worth talking about. Not everyone is so stubborn. The issue with something like climate catastrophe is that it's too abstract for them to actually conceptualize and visualize and apply to their daily lives. But the effects are so far reaching and inescapable and it's incredibly important that people are informed. It's worth trying and it's not like everyone is even necessarily SO emotionally invested in having kids. A lot of people are just expected to do so and it rocks their world to alter those expectations and consider something different for their future, but I think plenty of people are reachable. At the very least, I think preventing some
suffering is worth the effort.>>383318
You're right, it has never been ethical and the very act of bringing a child into the world, even when things are comparatively good in the world, is fundamentally unethical, because as I said, you rob your child of consent and your child can still suffer from congenital disease, predators, homelessness, acquired disease, old age, etc. You're literally forcing them into unavoidable suffering with no guarantee for anything else. At the least, war can potentially be averted. At least with issues like war, the problem is other people, and easing tensions, or knocking out some enormous asshole Hitler is something we can reasonably accomplish. Besides, all of those times are literally notorious for having DRASTICALLY decreased birth rates, that's literally why we had the baby boom. Anyways, now we're facing an existential threat that is against mother nature itself and we have literally no solutions. Natural disaster is a way, way more threatening opponent than other people. Besides, just because having kids was never ethical doesn't mean we shouldn't acknowledge that and apply that consciousness to our lives now? And as another anon said, birth control wasn't even a thing until the mid to late sixties, so there really wasn't much of a choice. We're inundated with options, and really, it's weird that you're excusing people being ignorant about bringing children into the world when a good parent, by nature, would be someone that heavily weighs the effects of their having a child and the suffering the child will have to go through. A good parent, by definition, wouldn't have a child knowing it can't consent and knowing they can't guarantee a high quality of life for that child.
>>383369>Then when many people can't afford to have kids.
Per the thread theme, I don't think 'can't afford to have kids' is always accurate. Kids are expensive and an extra one might drive tens of millions more families deep or deeper into poverty than is admitted, but people can definitely afford them.
It's just they consciously know their kids will have shittier lives than they did, and opt out.
>>383361>birth control wasn't even a thing until the mid to late sixties, so there really wasn't much of a choice.
The birth control pill wasn't around until the 60s, but to pretend like prior to that women didn't take measures to protect themselves from pregnancy and motherhood is wrong. Since ancient societies, women used certain herbs to induce miscarriage, all other old wives tales of food and activities to stop a pregnancy. Condoms and the pull out method also were used as "birth control". The diaphragm was patented and popularized in the late 1800s, but similar devices were used before that.
Of course these methods weren't as effective and precise as hormonal birth control, but pregnancy wasn't an inevitability back then.

Kale is not a magic superfood, none of the dark, pungent greens are. Why do urban vegan/Whole Foods fags act like they just discovered black gold when they eat kale? If you have family from the South, are black, or from some countries in Asia and Eastern Europe, you’ve probably eaten some form of dark bitter greens at one point in your life. I just find health food fads interesting because it’s always like, some food which has been around for centuries and no one outside of the community would touch with a 10 foot pole because it isn’t ‘sexy’ enough to put on a plate.
Like now I’m seeing a renaissance of Southern cooking, and suddenly people who used to belittle you for eating cornbread, black eyed peas, collard greens, are just touting the praises of these everyday staples as though the angel Gabriel himself delivered them a plate of fried chicken with gravy.
I love that show for something to throw on at the background. I am not into comedies at all, it's very difficult for me to laugh at anything, but i am entertained and invested for some reason At least the characters always get what they deserve, even if they don't learn their lesson. I just hate any episode that revolves around the gang being pissed because they are all bad enough sober. And also drunk in general are the fucking worst people ever.>>383965

I disagree, this probably counts as an unpopular opinion because a lot of people claim only the first 3 seasons are good or the middle section is, like you.
I think it peaked around 7-9 and has continued being funny (though it might be more that it has several absolute gold episodes per season now while the earlier seasons were more consistent with less gems). It's one series where flanderization actually works and the characters just get funnier as their shitty traits become more obvious and solidified. Watching 1-3 now is bizarre, they're way too nice (by their standards) and just don't have particularly distinct personalities. The Gang Dines Out or the Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award are probably my favourite episodes of theirs.
Uhh people actually thought it was good or passable? Everyone I know who cares thinks it's an ugly, cringey trainwreck. They're probably gonna watch it anyway, just to see how bad it'll be. >>384027
Western ideas of what is supposed to be cute has always been ugly, cringey shit to me. I guess my unpopular opinion is that everything that was supposed to be cute is just fucking ugly. Like, I totally understand why people believe Miffy and Moomins are originally Japanese, because they're just uncharacteristically cute for Western products.

I disagree. I loved ppg, but visually it never triggered
that "aw that's cute" response you get with like puppies and other cute stuff for me. CalArts style looks cringey to me.
I consider myself a feminist, but I feel like some women have used it as some sort of weird way to make themselves feel superior despite being so shitty. One example is this fat chick who was with this really hot guy that she treated like absolute shit. He finally dumped her after a few years of paying for everything while she mentally abused him and just sat on her ass getting fatter and fatter. Now she acts like she's the victim
and goes on about how she has waaay higher standards now and makes it about feminism. Like bitch, you're a horrible feminist. Your idea of feminist empowerment is not having to do jack shit or take care of yourself while a man you have zero respect for pulls all the weight. I've seen similar behavior from a few other women I know too.>>384573
Have fun convincing a man that it's okay for you to have orbiters but not him by justifying it with the logic that men are whores.
>>384573> I think we should be able to have back ups, at the very least, for emotional support or help
Mate, those are called friends, do other women find you so insufferable that only men that want to fuck you are willing to give you the time of day?
If you’re so wary of men and expect them all to be a piece of shit then why are you dating them.
>>384669>Mate, those are called friends, do other women find you so insufferable that only men that want to fuck you are willing to give you the time of day?
Stupid and needlessly bitchy assumptions on your part, honestly. Female friendship is great and a necessity but this is an entirely different animal. When you've come out of a shitty relationship and been broken down by some stupid asshole that spent the better part of your relationship hiding everything about himself in an effort to seem like a good person only to reveal that he's a literal scumbucket, it IS reassuring to have male friends to remind you that there are others out there and that you're appreciated by other guys that you also respect or like on some level. Not having that is why embarrassing, awkward, uncomfortable rebounds with randos happen.
And for real, you sound dumb. >If you’re so wary of men and expect them all to be a piece of shit then why are you dating them.
Because I'm not gay but still desire a relationship? And men are LITERALLY notoriously capable of sociopathic levels of compartmentalization.

James Charles is only as famous as he is because of the glass escalator and his 14 year old fag hag audience. His makeup skills, singing, and palette are all mediocre. The only talent of his worth praising is his marketing.

They’re orbiters - they’re not your friends, they’re only around you because that want to fuck you.
And you can still fuck men without dating them, don’t see how I’m the retard when you’re the one who thinks that men that orbit you actually give a single shit about you lmao
And much younger. See “trixya fanbase” which is a massive toxic
group of 10 year old fan girls obsessed with Rupaul’s Drag Race contestants Trixie Mattel and Katya
The drag race fanbase in general is a mess.
I'm not sure I would categorize fujoshis and fag hags as the same thing but that's more my opinion
I’m just waiting for a huge push for actual women to get onto the show now that they have let on trannies multiple times - because trans women are women, right? So if they don’t let on ‘cis’ women they’re essentially saying trans women are men.
But in all seriousness I don’t know why people take the show to heart, it’s literally gay men just dressing up as caricatures of women and screaming at each other. Bottom gay drama is the juiciest tv drama, there’s just something about taking dick up their arse that makes them argumentative and petty
So, it's no different from trans women latching onto everything to do with cis women and getting angry when we want shit for ourselves.
I hope they keep getting a taste of their own medicine until they go back to the form of misogyny that makes them leave us the fuck alone, tbh.
>>384858>anon, how about we don't continue to relate cis women with performative femininity? part of the reason i don't personally find drag offensive is because perfomative femininity isn't womanhood.
Performative femininity is often part of women's lived experience. It doesn't define womanhood, and I never said it did, but these people wouldn't be doing it if it wasn't part of it. Nobody sees a drag queen in a dress and starts to associate dresses with drag queens, they see a man cosplaying as an exaggerated version of a woman. That's just how it is. >whether the guys who do it are misogynists is a different thing, but the act itself has to do with shitty gender roles anyway.
My entire post was about misogyny, though, not gender roles. A lot of people in that scene aren't doing anything to smash gender roles, they're just showing off how simultaneously obsessed and bitter they are about those same gender roles, often with a not-so-subtle twinge of bitterness toward women and all things to do with femininity. >i think cis women choosing to participate in that are fucking stupid though because not only is it easy to turn a woman into a caricature of a woman, but it's embarrassing that they want to participate in something like that.
I think it's embarrassing, too. The whole fucking thing is embarrassing, ugly and tacky.>>384865>2019>defending drag queens
Lmao. They will be okay. Men in costumes don't need women to protect them, I promise.
I was referring specifically to trans women's behavior in my post, especially in the vein of >>384815
on "letting on trannies [because trans women are women, right?]", not attacking drag queens. Some trans women are drag queens, like it or not. I think drag queens who aren't are just weird gay men, and I don't care about them as long as they don't attack actual women the same way trannies do. The way they use terms like "fish" and perform their imagined stereotypes of catty, unintelligent women is gross, though, and I can't relate to anyone who would find that shit cute.
Literally no one associates performative femininity with their womanhood, it's simply an annoyance we have to deal with. Also, you are entirely wrong about your assertion, people do
associate certain things with drag, drag makeup is a thing that's not associated with women at all, infact women who do heavy IGthot makeup are associated with shitty drag because of how excessive it is. Either way, you seem to have entirely missed my point, and the other anon's point, because she wasn't trying to defend or protect drag queens. Your post also missed the point of what others were saying, in that drag doesn't let cis women in because they are women, but they let trannies in because they're not, so the trannies want to let cis women in because it validates them thinking they're women. Idiot.
I started disliking her after she made a huge deal about posing like a "deer in headlights"; saying it was glorifying female infantilism and naivete and how it was bad because somehow(???) Lolita was involved and it made women look weak(?). Idk, why doesn't she stop shaming other women for doing totally innocuous stuff?
I mean abortion is still illegal in many places but whatever, I'm oh so sorry you don't like my selfies Jamila.
I feel like she doesn't know what she's talking about and is just doing performative wokeness for dem social media clicks
So much of what she says hits a bum note with me, like it went through a boardroom of men first and she is just echoing it. No actual concept of what she's "fighting"

On the subject of performative femininity, men think us simply existing in our bodies is an intentional sexual statement for their benefit, so fuck it we should just do whatever we want. It will be misinterpreted whatever we do
This infuriates me. I have naturally big breasts and I can't wear anything without being labeled hypersexual. The only things I can wear are like 4 sizes too big sweatters that make me look way fatter than I am.
I'l literally be labeled slut for wearing anything fitted or even turtlenecks even though I've been voluntarily celibate for 2 years.
i think this is a pretty popular opinion. certainly better than "anyone who has ever watched anime is mentally ill." >>385205
this was kind of my point. if the people who do drag think that all women are is shitty performative femininity then fuck it, let them. they and the people who agree will just make it easier for me to know who not to be friends with. the idea of trying to "take back" performative femininity as something inherently woman is really dumb to me, we should be trying to separate being a woman from being stereotypes.

Lmao she just has a big ass. Presumably from muscle, which is useful as a police officer.
I guess male athletes like pic related are also
flaunting their sexuality.
The biological clock and baby fever is a myth. There's actually no evidence to suggest that baby fever is a biological phenomenon, let alone one heavily rooted in being female. It's all about suggestibility and it happens when other people have children. It's more silly socialization and it benefits men to pretend it's more deeply encoded than it really is. It's actually really fucking annoying to call out a mechanism of socialization that ends up actually marginalizing women and ends up creating more victims
of every axis of unresolved oppression in this world as being wholesale "dehumanizing!!!" and acting like it's misogyny to encourage women to reconsider pacifying men, as a class, by producing more children for them to exploit on every level imaginable. Fucking yawn.

>>385331>That's literally how birth control works? It's nothing but socialization.
what the fuck are you trying to say?
nta but i struggle to understand tf you mean by>Remember when you were a teenager and you were horny and curious, it wasn't because you innately learned sex felt good at that age
isn't it sorta obvious that sex is supposed to feel good as soon as you learn of it? unless you literally discover the concept when you are like 7, but you are speaking about teenagers, most of who have a good grip on what sex is supposed to be and is supposed to feel as they prolly have started masturbating by then?
>>385331>she thinks that sex being pleasurable is because it makes the body think it's pregnant>she thinks that pregnancy and getting off are the same for women and men>she thinks that birth control is a socialization OR that the body really thinks it's pregnant and the hormones aren't just making the body unable to release eggs
are you alright? what are you smoking? i never want to be on the same bad trip you are.
Sexual pleasure is not required at all for reproduction, I'm not really sure what you're talking about. The most sensitive areas for women are not involved in reproduction at all.
Humans want sex for the sake of sexual pleasure, not to reproduce.
>>385342>she thinks that sex being pleasurable is because it makes the body think it's pregnant
that's not what i was saying. i was saying that getting off, or, at least, sexual stimulation is the precursor to pregnancy - or, at least, that's why it feels good, so we're more encouraged to have sex and reproduce. the whole 'feel good' thing encourages us to do it? i said birth control tricks the body into thinking it's pregnant. when i cum, i'm fine, or when i have sex, i'm fine – there's no insatiable need to follow my fucking up with an obsession over whether or not i'm pregnant or even the remote desire to be pregnant. the point i'm trying to make is that once the bodily 'requirements' are satisfied, you don't need to literally follow that shit up with being knocked up. that's why, again, they've found that the meme that "women are baby craaazy because they inherently know they have X amount of years of fertility" is a myth. and you can't uncouple the myths of the ticking biological clock and the meme that women have a very specific, very intense form of 'baby fever' because of it. it's not true. >>385335>Women (and men) want to fuck, not because it feels good but because it's for making babies.
no, they're inextricably tied to each other. the 'feels good' is obviously what makes us want to do it more than the literal desire to breed. now, anyways, because we're able to reason shit out. we aren't alligators. obviously people have the desire to breed, innately, but the whole fucking reason why people fuck the way they do isn't to literally have a kid - it's because it feels good. that's why we've created a whole system to bypass the whole pregnancy thing?? because we want to get the pleasure of fucking without actually getting pregnant?
>Remember when you were a teenager and you were horny and curious, it wasn't because you innately learned sex felt good at that age,
no. it literally was that cumming felt good. again, the biological basis is there, but that pleasure, NOW, considering we're not rabbits or shrews, isn't the main motivation for us fucking. the basis is there, obviously. that's why we fuck, but it doesn't mean it needs to literally result in a pregnancy or else women aren't adequately satisfied. again, that's why most people use contraception. people deliberately try to bypass the negative consequences of the system that was created to encourage breeding. i'm not saying people don't have the 'urge to breed'. what i'm saying is that it isn't actually that strong or unavoidable (especially the way society says it is in women) given that it takes a backseat to pleasure when pleasure alone can be isolated.
Then why are you responding to people directly responding to her?
>inb4 not every anon ITT is the same anon
No shit, but you're literally responding to things that people were talking to >>385331
>>385562>muscular men is a meme for men by men. it literally looks so retarded and disproportionate.
I love you, farmers.
Just imagine the minds of male lurkers exploding while reading this.
Right? Maybe it's selfish but I recently saw a cute lil 5'3" man I went on a date with last fall and now he's beefing and it's just such a waste. I know it's his body, but he was so perfect before this.>>385562
Agree. I find it hard to believe any woman is actually attracted to muscles. The ones who swoon over it are always obviously faking/have been memed into it by society.
Chubby guys I can kind of understand though. A certain amount of squish can be cute on certain men, usually only if they have rounder features.

like little boys? I like mine slender and athletic too but tbh anon this just sounds like "petite smol gf" reversed
it's not like anyone here is favoring lanklets either.
I don't get why so many farmers here like small skinny men
I hate beards and current hairstyles, especially those with shaved sides ugh
From the way >>385562
describes her distaste for manly proportions, I'm guessing she enjoys the more androgynous appeal that being skinny gives to guys. If so, I get it, my attraction skews femme so I like the way the waistline of skinny guys curves in a more feminine way
Also I prefer when my strength is a little more evenly matched with my partner, I love a good wrassel
no, i like normal height men, like, 5'9 and up, but waifish and petite, like, a tiny frame but not short. no, not like children, just fragile young men, especially when counpled with a meek personality. there's just something about a fragile man that is just so very attractive. the physical vulnerability and just an innate desire to protect him (despite the fact that i'm kind of incapable of doing so because i'm short and petite myself), i guess. and i like that it's kind of a physical equalizer. i'd love to be a tall, strong woman that was maybe just as tall or an inch shorter, and feel like i really was capable of protecting him if i needed to. i'm not really attracted to the physical proportions of shorter men though, and i do think it is a bit too childlike for my preference.
I'll probably get called a fatty-chan for this but I think fat representation in the media is fine, not only because fat people exist and always will (until global warming puts us in a food crisis kek) but because fat people shouldn't be made to feel subhuman. We already know that shaming fat people doesn't actually help them, they have to want to take the steps to be healthy and help themselves. If anything, the stress of being ostracized and hated just makes the problem worse, because very fat people usually have deep-seated psychological issues that they cope with by overeating.
That said I don't think obesity should be glorified in any way. People like Tess Holliday are delusional and disgusting, as is the entire HAES movement. But I don't think having a size 16 person on screen is going to hurt anyone.

Same for me. I hated my own "fat" body and projected these sick ideals on everybody else around me as well. Now I feel ashamed of the way I thought and acted back then, because I realized that those people I solely hated for the way they look, can actually be really, really nice.
It's sad that there are people like those farmers out there, who still have this mindset as adults.
Nobody is saying that haes should be put on tv, holding speeches about how great being obese is, but there have been multiple posters who bragged about being cunts to overweight people irl.>>385702>Some other people struggle to see others kill themselves slowly.
I hate this excuse. You know exactly that this is not the reason in 99% of the cases. Some assholes just enjoy being jerks to anybody who doesn't fit their idea of being attractive - whether it's being too fat or something else.
I remember there even being an anon who said that just seeing fat people in public hurts and repulses her and that therefore they shouldn't be allowed to go out until they've lost weight.
This always reminds me of pic related. Yes, that man is dangerously obese, but you're certainly not healthy in the upstairs department either. It seems as if some retards think that being thin gives them a free card to treat others as lesser.
I'm just curious as to how you know the distinction between an obese person who lost 40 pounds this year and an obese person who didn't lose anything? One obese person is objectively not neglecting themselves while the other is, yet you as an outsider wouldn't know the difference. You'd think both are doing nothing and neglecting themselves when that might not be the case.
Just seems like an unfair assumption to make about most fat strangers, considering you don't know what they've done to try to help themselves. Ditching obesity doesn't happen in a few month's time, it can take years.
I'm BMI 24 and carry my weight in my chest and arms (and mostly wear baggy clothes) so I know that many farmers would consider me fat (even though my weight is healthy). I also lost big ammount of weight over the years, I used to be obese two years ago and yet people who just see me on the street don't know that.
Also the "health" argument is bullshit. A couple years ago, I was deep into cocain and amphetamine usage which resulted in me dropping weight very quickly and all of my friends kept congratulating me even though they knew it was a result of drug addiction. I'm no healthy by any means but afaik my epilepsy has nothing to do with my weight. No one ever side-eyes me for smoking however they do for eating chocolate.
No one tells anything to my openly anorexic friends who keep chainsmoking and doing drugs and who binge-drink and then make themselves throw up.
yeah exactly. the whole "but ur unhealthy im just worried about your health!!!" excuse is just that, an excuse. it's just not socially acceptable to tell someone you find them disgusting, so you couch it in fake concern. and honestly, who the fuck is concerned about the health of total strangers? you don't have to find fat people attractive or extend them any empathy but you can afford them the same courtesy you afford other people with equally shitty but less visible vices.
t. former fatty who everyone treated like garbage til I got on medication for my PCOS and lost weight
It was okay, but just okay.
I don't get the obsession.
Some comedy doesn't age well. They we're innovative for their time
I still enjoy some of their humor but a lot of it misses but that's honestly like a lot of sketch comedy shows. I wouldn't expect ppl to be into caesar's hour in this age
I'm tayrt and same, I don't like stereotypical british humour at all.
I hate how whenever somebody dares to say that they just can't find it funny, they a) either say you don't understand it (as if it requires a certain level of intelligence…) or b) simply accuse you of lacking any sense of humour yourself. Somehow nobody is allowed to simply not find it funny. What a weird thing to feel patriotic about.
It's especially bad whenever I say that, because as a no-fun german my opinion about jokes or humour will always be wrong in their eyes.
File: 1552482448348.jpg (31.21 KB, 400x300, Hyacinth.jpg)
not british but i liked it when i was like 12-14. i think it's the sorta humour you grow out of but most people remember it with nostalgia glasses as being muuuch better than it really is you know? feel the same way about keeping up appearances (although in my heart hyacinth>>>>> everything else british comedy).
Does Monty Python really represent British humor? It's so old and specifically surreal >>386239
As a brit, agree to disagree. I prefer dry humor, big loud outspoken American show hosts just make me disconnect entirely
My unpopular opinions is that comedians who play up being a campy gay stereotype are awful in every way
lmao I'm not, I just think bmi of maybe 24-26 (unathletic) can look nice on otherwise small men. Just a bit soft.
I also like short chubby girls.
I feel you. I would love to become a mother someday but “mombies” drive me crazy. My friend’s little sister is one. Once she totally sperged at me because I suggested that she breastfeed her baby in the bathroom while we were at a restaurant (for the record, I have nothing against breastfeeding in public. I just suggested that because she expressed being uncomfortable breastfeeding around a bunch of old people). Yet this is also the same chick who insist on her abusive

I hate facial hair on men. Even if it's just a developing mustache or 5'clock shadow. The smallest amount just ruins men for me like it'd ruin a women.
If they aren't clean shaven I just can't do it.
Considering pregnancy literally cuts down your lifespan I'd say more people should probably research what pregnancy comes with. I'd love to adopt a child in need in the future but birth itself is out of the question for me unless there will be a surrogate.
My friends, who have been a couple a long time, just had a baby and they're not married. It was planned, as far as they tell people, but I'm not sure. I'm pretty annoyed with this.
I don't think marriage is a sacred thing that children should stay within or whatever. I'm only interested in marriage as a legal institution and I would hope parents would seek to maximize a child's legal rights. It's not even that they're hippie enough to "not believe" in marriage, they're just not seeing that sort of commitment as a possibility or some shit like that. So not committed enough for marriage and a clean splitting of property but committed enough for a whole ass human being. OKAY…
Having childrens shortens you Telomeres more than obesity or smoking, the longer Telomeres= better health, longer livespan and slower aging.
They literally fuck up your health and shorten your life expectancy.
You sound like a massive edgelord. Just sayin'. It's not just women that want to procreate, it's literally both sexes, and it has very little to do with being a 'dog in heat'. Some people actually love their families.
How hateful and depressing your life must be.
Right? Not just that, but I seriously question how strong that biological imperative is for people who aren't suggestible retards. I feel legitimately 0 need to have a child and it does nothing but stir up fear for me.>>386346>It's not just women that want to procreate, it's literally both sexes, and it has very little to do with being a 'dog in heat'
Anon, you'll frequently find that men bitch non-stop about women who want to 'trap' them. The only men that claim to want to procreate are the ones who believe in trad shit and want to force women into 'carrying on their legacy' because they have some white pride genealogical fetishism or some shit.
Okay, sure. Almost my entire social group from grad school are a) married and b) already has kids or kids are being planned. The guys are not bitching about being trapped. They're excited about being fathers. No one is trad or religious or anything else.
You sound like you're living in a dystopia, sucks to be you? Move to a big city with normal human beings.
