Can having a history of going to a therapist affect future employment?
Deciding whether it's truly worth it if my future will be fucked.

Is it normal for your computer disk to jump to 100%? Like whenever I open it app it spikes to 100% then drops down back to 10%. My disk also maxes out at 100% when an app tries to update.

If it is normal for a disk to be at 100% can I use the computer while it's maxed out? Or should I wait for the update to finish.

No. 411499

Depends on where you're from and which employment/position you strive for. I live in Europe and I know several people who needed health certificates prior to their employment. If they had any psychological issues registered in their official medical history, then they wouldn't be hired. So it would be better to go to a therapist privately, so you won't get anything negative registered which could a screw up your future employment and life.

Damn, what were the positions if you don't mind me asking? I know military bans it but wondered if other places that do background checks (so anywhere that isn't McDonald's I guess kek) would be bothered.

I'm in Canada and want to just get a comfy office job, but if I decide to work my way up or even go for a government position it would be sad if I was held back for going to therapy. Might talk to the career planning office at my university about it at some point before scheduling an appointment.

What kind of jobs were they going for, anon?
Am Canadian and my therapist has always told me that if an employer asks a question related to it, I can just dance around it with some generic answer.
I’ve always been under the impression that most employers (like an office job or the like) don’t have a right to that kind of information or at least the specifics of it.
But idk.

Does seeing a therapist actually help with depression? I’d love it if any anons can share their experiences.

No. 411531

In the United States, your medical records aren't even made available in a typical background check unless you are applying for a job that requires your physical health to be up to a certain standard, or perhaps if you are applying for a job which requires you to have a certain security clearance such as CIA/FBI/military other related jobs. I don't know how your potential employer would know about you going to therapy unless you inform them.

>>411499
In the United States it would be considered discrimination to not hire someone on the basis of diagnosed psychological issues such as depression, or anxiety which are legally classified as disabilities. Under GINA and ADA it's extremely unlikely you could be forced to have a health screening which would reveal a history of going to therapy.

No. 411545

It can. The key is that it's not the therapy that helps, it's taking what you learn in therapy and applying it consistently every day.

What the other anon said; it's definitely a long-term thing. It's also nice to know that you're paying a professional that won't judge you and has the capacity to work with you, so it eases the burdens you place on your friends and family. Telling a therapist that you're having suicidal thoughts is a lot better than telling a friend because the friend might not know what to do. You do have to keep it up for a long time though.

No. 411581

>>411519
there are different kinds of therapy. behavioural and analytical and also group which tends to be mixed. I prefer analytical therapy and it helps me understand myself and the feelings I surpress and the roots of my problems and helps me find closure and peace and healing. I wouldn't miss all this knowledge I have learned about myself for the world. it's amazing and so helpful.
getting better still takes work and time though. you can't expect a therapist to wave a wand and magically fix you. I met a lot of people who were disappointed because of that and blamed a likely decent therapist.
there are also studies that say analytical therapy has the best effect after it's completed and after you let some baggage go and can apply your knowledge of yourself to your life fully.
it took me a while finding a good therapist. sometimes, you get a bad or just incompatible one and that can suck. it's also generally really awkward and confusing as a beginner and the road to receive good therapeutic care can be tricky with waiting lists and all.
I'm really happy about my therapy now. just my two cents. good luck whatever you do

No. 411591

>>411519

adding to that, group therapy and maybe also self help groups can be nice, too, because you really get to know other people and their challenges for a while in person while also being able to crack mad jokes here and there. you can laugh and cry together. it helps to feel
solidarity, to feel less alone, to accept challenges as normal and also develop that benevolent, friendly attitude not only towards others but also towards yourself. conflict management can also be practiced sometimes.
or at least that was my experience because I was really lonely at the time I stared group therapy. it helped me a lot personally and widened my horizon

Military like you already mentioned and aviation, especially if you want to fly an airliner. There are so many tests you have to pass and you have to go regularly to doctors to screen your physical and mental health.
Also civil servants but they can easily lie about their mental health (at least what my friend told me)

Does anyone else sit in unconventional positions at their desk when studying or working? Picture related, because I literally couldn’t find any other picture that isn’t of some totally quirky anime character ugh. I sit like L but I put a knee under me on the chair and leave the other knee up. This position while leaning forward is literally the only way I can concentrate; but I feel kind of embarrassed sitting in such a weird position at the library or in any other public setting when I’m studying because I probably look like I’m on some Adderall binge or something.

This probably sounds even weirder but I also sort of do it to a lesser degree in classes as well, but I try to tone it down and usually sit criss-cross with my legs in my lap in the chair. Am I alone on this?

Sometimes I worry that some idiotic nudes I posted when I was 15 on 4chan will come back to haunt me.
I know that if anyone tries to use them against me, it can be counted as CP and removed with them getting arrested, but I'm not sure what I can do to ensure it doesn't happen.
I found the images in an archived thread. How can I go about contacting the owner of the archive site to remove them? Do I need to dox myself with proof it was me and that I was underage in them, or can I just use the normal report system and say it's CP? Help.

I'm the only one who has issues with the new Instagram design? Two days or so ago they updated their web design (I don't actively use the app so I only check stuff through the web version) and since then I need to scroll up to the pic caption because I'm in the middle of the comment section. Besides that I can't normally scroll up as I used to do it, so the only way to view the caption is to mark the comments so I can go to the top of the post (if you get what I mean). I tried several options to go through the comments but it's also not possible besides mark it but then it scrolls too fast to view want I want to see. I'm just ???? about this, is my flash player not really working or is it an issue on their side? welp

Possible arthritis anon here. low magnesium and calcium can cause joint pain and stiffness.

It makes sense that people will develop more social and emotional intelligence as they get older, and gain a more nuanced understanding of the consequences of their actions. I have a foggy memory of, as a toddler, pushing a friend down a flight of concrete stairs; I wasn't trying to hurt them, I just wanted to see what would happen without even realizing how much harm it could cause. I believe teenage edginess is a more subdued version of the same thing, at a later stage of development. That might be an unpopular opinion on a site premised on picking apart strangers online.

a deficit in these isn't your fault and can happen for so many reasons. Aswell as the joint issues.
And you shouldn't worry about wasting the doctor's time because they are there to help you and treat you and your health concerns were valid and not a waste of time just because you didn't supplement something for a while.
Just take the vitamins and try to live as healthy as you can and you'll likely be fine. Stress can also affect the joints.
And watch how they feel over time.
If you want to be certain, you could get your blood tested or joints checked again if that's not too expensive. Good luck

Full cheeks is a big one for a youthful face, with no lines on the face. Eyemakeup makes people look older as it makes female eyes more deep set, features that aren't hollow or deep set makes a person look youthful. a soft jawline.

Makes someone look older: dark makeup, visible cheekbones, strong jaw, any lines or indents in the face.
Body: Smooth skin all over without bones jutting out. Older skin sags which shows the bones more. Fat on the upper chest makes someone look younger.

For guys it's similar, strong jaws, deep set features, bones visible, muscular or sinewy skin, plus facial and body hair and rough skin all add to the appearance of ageing.

You probably mean certain things our body does like wrinkles and stuff but I think a lot of other weird things factor in that I've noticed over time;

Stuff that makes people look older:

>Clumping/spider eyelashes
>Stark black eyeliner on the waterline. Use brown.
>Momokun cheek jowls (use a face sponge with collagen, it really helps tighten my skin)
>Clothes or hair that were popular when you were young(er). We kinda naturally gravitate towards 90's to early 00's styles without thinking and clock ourselves. Like Spice Girls highlights and bad footwear.

Stuff that makes people look younger:
>Dark circle concealer
>Shiny hair, especially if you even out your natural color with a same-color dye. Length helps too as long as its fuller on top.
>Knowing your skin tone and what color clothing works with it.
>Hydrated lips in a flattering, natural color.

>youth does not mean beauty
>just makes you cute
Absolutely. I have many of those features but would never be considered beautiful by any means. "Beauty" is often reserved for women with more mature features, I'd say. Having a more equal mix of traits can make you pretty or beautiful, but if it's majority youthful traits you'll never escape cute even if you style yourself maturely and have a body to match.
Also having a cute face puts many in a weird place between 35-50 where you look old and young at the same time in an uncanny way. I'll be a cute grandma when I get there, but I'm not looking forward to that weird phase.

(also inb4 someone comes at me for "LARPing as a kawaii loli" or some shit, I still have off features like a nubian nose, proportions being off in other ways, and some acne. And having a larger frame and deep voice makes the face seem goofy lol, not great)

it's complicated. as far as national public opinion, the majority of americans think abortion should be legal is all or most cases (58% as of 2018). if you look state by state, or drill down to specific demographic groups, that number can go up or down drastically. 59% of republicans think abortion in all/most cases should be illegal, for example.

something to keep in mind is that these bills are not being voted for by the residents of the state - they are being introduced and passed by the state house and senate where republicans have a supermajority and the governor - which I could go off on a whole tangent about but I won't lol

A lot of lost sleep because one of them was messy, loud and inconsiderate and my mental health was much worse while I was there. I actually got off my meds after moving out, that's how bad it was for me.

If they're friends you know and trust and you can set down ground rules that work for you, it might be different. But if they are strangers it's really awkward and uncomfortable imo. YMMV depending on how assertive you are.

It made me want to kill myself and ruined my mental health, but I have avpd beyond depression so yeah.

My roommates were best friends with each other and I was a third wheel that was needed for paying the rent. It's not like they haven't tried to be nice to me, because they did… It just didn't work out because I am a fuck up that feels uncomfortable with new people and prefers to sit in my room alone 24/7. After some disagreement, I ended up being so anxious about meeting them I could not cook at all. I was only visiting kitchen when I knew there will be nobody there. I felt out of place and too anxious to attempt to cook anything. That was horrible.

I felt like a piece of shit when I was having a mental breakdown and could hear them loudly partying with their friends on the other side of the wall.

Obviously those are my bad experiences that are also reliant on my messed up personality and issues. Personally I would not recommend living with roommates if you are not BFFs from the start, but that's just me. You might have better luck!

No. Don't take a neuroleptic for sleep issues only unless you have tried EVERYTHING ELSE.
Try meditation, more sport, warm drinks, antihistamines, heavy blankets, reading before going to sleep, reducing your screen time, taking melatonin, benzos once you have tried that, and other benzos if the first one is not working.

Benzos can get really addictive without you even noticing it but they're not nearly as dangerous imho.

I've been a bordeline hikikomori for most of my life and the two things that helped me become more "normal" were therapy to treat my kinda severe social anxiety and putting myself in situations that I havent before.Therapy helped get over delusions and paranoias I had about the "outside" world.After I got over my panic in level I could tolerate,I slowly started doing "social" things like going out with friends in places unfamiliar to me.

The thing is to go slowly and not overwhelm yourself since the panic that this could cause you could set you back and prevent you from trying for a long time.I would definitely suggest finding a good therapist since having "terrible social anxiety" is probably a result of many wrong things you may be thinking about yourself and others and it didnt just manifest randomly.If you dont improve your anxiety and your reactions to it,you wont become a "charismatic" person no matter how much you try or read.You can fake it but if you're a nervous wreck inside,it is gonna show eventually

the bottom line is,get over your stress first and then concern yourself with being a charismatic person.it will probably come naturally as you feel more comfortable in your own skin anyway

no offense,but the way you word things sounds more like wanting to impress others rather than improving your anxiety which is totally not the way to go for it

Yes!! I think the main part is just getting out of your shell at social functions, just say hi to people and compliment their outfits, hair, whatever. If you’re at an event with people you used to know, say like, people you went to high school or college with, just always say hi and ask them what they’re up to now— “So what do you do now, where are you working?” And then make sure you seem interested in their response. After you’ve established yourself as a warm person, after a while people will start to flock to you! Another big tip is learning how to flirt— it’s sooo great for your social self esteem for guys and/or girls to kind of hang onto what you do next, especially if they’re shy themselves and you strike up a conversation first. And once you’ve known people for a few months goodbye hugs definitely make you seem like a nicer, outgoing person if that’s permissible in your culture. And I don’t know if you go out to clubs/concerts but if you do, dancing with your friends is a great way to look and feel more confident. The safety in numbers of going places with groups of friends makes you feel less ridiculous, and most people think “wow I wish I could be that fun/confident”, so that’s also a great way to attract people and kind of promote yourself as a fun person. Good luck anon!! Sorry if this wasn’t exactly the advice you were looking for, but over the past year and a half of my life I’ve gone from being an aggressive, anti-social person to being able to be friendly to other people by default and having a few boyfriends so i swear it’s possible!

Stop spreading propaganda to encourage girls pretending to be openly bisexual or lesbian for a month or 4 after suddenly realizing it by watching pornhub marathons when there are actual studies that suggest that straight women in fact can get horny by watching naked women.
Seriously, you can't compare it to how males get attracted or aroused by someone because in general it is completely different. Like if you ask me it'd be weird for a straight girl to watch the average heterosexual couple porn since it doesn't look like the female is enjoying herself since it is obviously intended for men to watch and not specifically for females, so of course girls making a little bit more tender romantic love will be more liked. And also, while not necessarily the case, it could be that they just imagine themselves as them having fun since heterosexual porn sucks ass. But just give any girl that can get only laid with le bos porno a heterosexual couple porn that has a 8/10 guy who is ass-hair free and squeaky clean and who knows how to eat out etc…and they'd "fall in love"/get a teen crush. Sadly such videos are very rare to non-existing. I stick to my lesbo porn in the mean time, though I'm steering away from porn in general.

It's just something that occurred to me as I automatically considered it natural and thus never thought about it. I'm not sure about when exactly you can call it gay and when it's like a quirk in a straight person. If a man would look at another naked man and get a boner, but wouldn't have the immediate urge to interact with the naked dude's genitals, I'm not sure if you could call him gay for getting a boner only. Straight people can find their same gender objectively pretty/attractive so arousal doesn't seem too far away from that. It's even more complicated for women, as we can't directly penetrate but what if that's the only urge beyond being turned on by the body (considering they're not trans or something)?

What I think I'm trying to say is we are horny but without the desire to ever be with a woman. We just know what sounds and looks like fun.

I didn't reply to a single of these bait (you)s and neither should you have. Only you yourself can know if you're gay or not, assuming you know the exact definition of it, not knowing what the definition exactly includes may be the reason why these fake-lesbians exist in the first place, but I was just warning you to not listen to a bunch of people who don't even know you and that it is indeed possible to be a straight woman and watch lesbian porn and that there are studies that show females and males are completely different even when it comes to watching porn. And remember: outliers exist and yes a man could in theory watch gay porn when the men in the video are attractive no homo. But they probably would want a female to lick dair poopoo like icecream. I won't ever in my life eat out a girl, fucking ever. Nor would I let some bitch eat out me. A clean shaven dick is just perfect for me the way it is and plastic and bony fingers really won't do it. And while I barely watch porn, I sure for hell won't watch a dude's shitstained hairy anus you can watch da poopoo if you don't like lesbian porn but I will stick to HQ IQ porno.

I do know foot size can increase with weight gain because the arches in one's feet tend to flatten the heavier one get. Btw, birth control and pregnancy can also increase shoe size because the hormones relax feet and collapse arches.

Furthermore shopping online is dumb for shoes since you need to actually try them before you buy them, expensive or not.
Pair of customized shoes is an unthinkable option.

She is just tired of wearing male shoes. One of the reasons we went shopping again is because her gym shoes tore, not because she slimmed down. I told her to not buy anything until she is medium sized or a small Large, so yeah…it's not a case of a female losing 20 pounds, more like a whole human.

My boyfriend's family has a lot of alcoholism running in it and his mother has told me to be wary of how much alcohol he consumes as he had a brief period of drinking heavy liquor daily.
I recently said it was fine for him to drink whenever he wanted and not to ask me because I don't want to be controlling, but I found out today he drank 500ml of Vodka in 5 days (that was a gift for both of us). I'm a bit pissed and I think it's irresponsible but I just don't know what to say to him.
He has a weird hangup as well about people who smoke cigarettes and weed and considers those people almost immoral and beneath him? Yet he has no problem drinking alcohol?

he might be saying alcohol isn't a psychoactive/psychotropic drug. If he's saying that, he either has the wrong info or is lying to you.

A psychoactive/-tropic drug is anything that alters your mental state and changes your perception/mood/behavior. Caffeine and tobacco fall under this category, so saying "psychotropic drugs are immoral and bad but alcohol is okay" is incorrect on multiple levels.

sounds like he's making excuses for his drinking, which is a very slippery slope. Also drinking all of your shared alcohol seems like he lost control or something. Definitely be careful.

I have seen her childhood pics, that was her at skinniest lmfao, and she looked ok. It's like women who wear headscarf, they are 100 times prettier with and then when you think if they'd put it off they look 200 times prettier since the hijab is bringing their beauty down, but it's actually far from the truth. She isn't that beautiful if she would lose weight, she's just holding a crutch and it just isn't super ugly and that's why we have this illusion she's ultimately gorgeous. Not meaning to say her features are ugly btw, just not that beautiful to the point the internet should break.

I was one of the anons who replied to you, but unfortunately I only religiously keep up with one LPer, so my two cents might be pretty worthless since a lot of it is personal taste.

1) Consistency is key. Streaming, uploading youtube videos - I like coming home on x day with something to look forward to helping me unwind and have fun.
2) Someone said it on another thread, honestly it might've been on a camgirl thread, but I think it still applies here- You gotta make something out of absolutely nothing, probably more often than not when you first start out and have little engagement from people. You might have a stream with two viewers, maybe one, maybe even none, but if I drop by and you're dead silent, I'm a lot less likely to stay compared to maybe if you're talking about something that I might think is interesting or might just want to hear more of. A HUGE reason why I really like my favorite LPer is that his voice is so soothing. Sometimes if I want background noise, I'll play his streams because I like his voice so much.
3) Community engagement. I think even consistently engaging with other streamers and video makers might help too. Jump into a thread from a popular LPer or something that interests you, start conversations with their fans too. I personally hate shameless promotion, but if I see your name repeatedly pop up and you seem nice and interesting enough, I might check out your profile and then check out your stream/channel. Update your social media enough so that I know you're still active and can look forward to seeing something from you at some point in the near future (going back to point one).

I haven't been following my favorite LPer since the beginning, but from what I know, it was also a stroke of good luck that youtube was favoring his videos and kept suggesting them to people (coupled with having content that could keep people around) that made his popularity soar. He streams on twitch and then will upload a very shortened video reel of the highlights of his streams to his channel so he gets exposure on both platforms, if that's something you want to look into doing. I'm personally more of a video girl though. Streams can be pretty boring and I really just want to watch the meat of things, and personally, most times I can't make stream times or I just want to do something else, so videos let me watch the content on my own time.

Can somebody explain to me why the word 'cunt' in particular is so bad? I'm not a native english speaker, and I always thought that it was just a simple curse word. I actually liked the way it sounded and started using it a lot, but I read/heard that it is an insult aimed at women or something like that? My current understanding of the word is that it's just a very vulgar way of saying 'vagina' or something like that. That by itself doesn't sound so bad though. In my native language we have some kind of equivalent to that, but it's not really THAT terrible. Do people use it in a very sexist or offensive way? What's the deal with that word and why do I see so many people against it? It is a term like 'faggot'? Or is it more like a generic insult? I only use it to refer to myself, should I stop?

Depends on where you live, in the USA I’d say it’s used in such a derogatory way that it’s up there with Faggot and Nigger as it’s very much a targeted slur filled with hatred, but then in Australia everyone’s very lax with it so it’s just a mild cuss and no one will think twice if you call them a Cunt

Women reclaim those words and use them themselves idk why cunt is somehow worse than them because it's used as a slang term for vagina, people say pussy too down here as well, how is cunt worse than any of those.

It's considered offensive because it's summarizing a woman as just her reproductive organs and implying that they're a bad thing.

It depends on the culture really. In the US it's basically the n-word for women. In the UK it's still a misogynist thing to say to a woman but not as severe since it's also used for men in a more angry way to call him an "asshole" or "dickhead". In Australia it's even more watered down because it's something used in the same slang way that "motherfucker" is in the US, meaning someone or something is remarkable, often in a good way.

Not bait but a friend just asked me if shorter women had shorter or less wide vaginas than taller women on average (weird for him to even ask me, he knows I've never seen another vagina irl) and I'd never thought about it before, and it got me wondering. Do you guys think it's possible it does?

Everywhere I look says "no" and they cite dicks as a comparative example, but tbh I feel like that's already a faulty comparison. Dicks are external and so their size isn't limited because they don't need to be situated inside of a body.

I just read through a study that said vaginas could be .09 cm to .02 cm longer per meter difference in height. Nothing about width or difference when aroused vs unaroused but does anyone think it's a little weird that our bodies are biometrically scaled but everyone is saying there's 0 difference on average between short and tall? Like, on average you're not going to find a 6'0 woman with size 5 1/2 feet. I don't think any differences would be totally massive, but a difference is a difference.

I feel like this is a lie to spare feelings and curb male retardation because they can't handle nuance without turning into some extreme thing and using it against women. I see a lot of people/professionals/doctors also pretend that pregnancy has no real impact on the vagina either, probably in order to combat stigma (which I totally understand the need for, but objective fact is objective fact).

Wouldn't it make more sense to find out how much organs scale with height? You just said dicks don't count because they're external, but feet are external too so I'm kind of confused by the logic, I would be looking inside the body for a comparison. A vagina is a hole but it seems feasible that size is dictated by the surrounding organs (eg maybe the cervix location dictates the length of the vagina, or the bladder size affects the width). I don't know anything about the human body though, just looked up pic related.

I googled a bit about organs and body size and it seems random as hell. Irrelevant to reproductive organs either way but still.
>It was observed that the heart, liver, left kidney, right kidney, brain, and left lung were positively correlated to body weight, while only the brain and the left lung were positively correlated to the height in the male population.

Dick size or width is not relative to height size at all. The same way, say, eye size or ear size has nothing to do with height.

Someone posted on here about this recently and said their girlfriend, who was a few inches taller than her, could not take the large sized dildo she could.

I don't know if your post is a handmaiden thing, or a cope that men aren't really pedophiles and just want tight vag…but height and size of vagina has no correlation. The only thing I think has a chance of being different is a tall girl having a longer birth canal/longer distance to the cervix just due to longer torsos and limbs and stuff? but actual vaginas and related organs are gonna be unique to everyone, the same way our facial features are.

No. 415790

Oof, as somebody who's tall, this is something that left me worrying for ages already. There's tons of men who say that shorter women (and especially asians) really do have tighter vaginas than taller ones, so…
Have you ever seen a really short guy with a big dick? I haven't. It's usually always the taller men, so I do believe that it's the same for women. And just like somebody else already said, feet, hands, everything is simply bigger if you're tall in height, so your insides must be as well.

No. 415791

>You just said dicks don't count because they're external, but feet are external too so I'm kind of confused by the logic,
Our feet need to be a certain size to reasonably support us. You're not going to find a 6'0 woman with 5 1/2 size feet often because it's pretty difficult to balance a body like that. Dicks are just stupid hanging appendages that don't need to support a body. I think probably on average taller men probably have slightly bigger dicks, but again, their dick size isn't really affected by the relative size of their organs or bone structure.

>It was observed that the heart, liver, left kidney, right kidney, brain, and left lung were positively correlated to body weight, while only the brain and the left lung were positively correlated to the height in the male population. In the female population, the heart, liver, right kidney, brain, and right lung were positively correlated to the weight of the body, while only the right kidney was positively correlated to the height of the body.

The study this was from was measuring weight. They're talking about differences in weight of the organs, not size, exactly, js. Even if that's the case and they're mostly the same size tall to short, that still leaves less space for people of smaller stature/smaller frames. So are their organs literally just crammed to shit in comparison? So is pregnancy much more difficult for them because the child, which is going to be the same size, has to squeeze into a cavity that's occupied by the same size organs as taller people? Just seems odd.

>>415781
>Dick size or width is not relative to height size at all.
I didn't say it was, but multiple studies have found moderate correlation, some weak, and a few none. But there's really no reason for a dick to be impacted so much by height anyways, compared to other things. There are few studies examining vaginas and their potential correlation to height, but as I said, the one that I found did show correlation, though it's not like it's an amount that men would actually notice. I just think it's being downplayed, much like how childbirth does affect the vagina, but for the sake of quelling male retardation, professionals pretend it doesn't change the vagina. I just think it's curious is all. Tbh though there definitely are a number of studies correlating male height and dick size. Men are too big of babies to accept it though and so even if it was objectively proven to be true, there's no way people could admit it or speak freely about it without them going apeshit about it and committing sudoku and blaming women for it.

Yeah, this is what I've read, but if you read like women's health articles doctors are saying there is 0 difference at all, period. And I just realized I read it wrong, so they're saying the .09 is for the height difference and .02 is weight difference. Interesting. I have no doubt in my mind though that any difference is COMPLETELY imperceptible to men and is mostly going to be imperceptible in general. An Asian or petite woman could put a loose sock in front of her crotch and let a guy fuck it and he'd still brag about how 'totally tight' she was just because they completely invent their own narratives based on their own memetier bullshit. I just think it's kind of crazy that doctors say such absolute things. I think ultimately, though, the ends justify the means. There's definitely reason for them to not mention the correlation.

Found this
>I think torso length and hip width are pretty good determiners for vagina size. It is not the height of of the women (head to foot) which determines the depth of the vagina. There is definitely a racial difference and also genetic factors which determine the length of vagina. White women give birth to babies with larger heads "on average" so their hips are "on average" broader, and their vaginal opening is also larger. Black women, actually have smaller vagina's. They give birth to babies with smaller heads and have smaller hips. Black women store more body fat on their buttocks, but their hips are actually smaller (men and women). White people also have longer torso's and white women also have longer vagina's. Asian women have shorter vagina's than both black and white women, have wider openings than black women, but not as large as white women. Unlike penis size, the body size/shape of a woman has an influence on vaginal size. Taller women (longer torso) with wider hips will most likely have longer and deeper set vagina. Torso size/length is more significant than actual height. As for men however, a 6' 8" man may have a smaller penis than a 5' 8" man, just like has ears may also be smaller. External organs are not influenced by body size or height, whereas internal organs are.

tfw you're a tall and therefore long torso-ed white woman with wide hips…

How do I make friends that will actually want to hang out with me?

I'm finishing my first year of uni and I feel like I failed completely in the area of making meaningful friends. I know some girls I always sit next to and have phone numbers of, but they never showed any interest in hanging out with me. If I have to be real they aren't people I would like to hang out with either, they feel like people I just grouped with to not be lonely but we have no connection apart that, no things in common (apart out major).
I guess my point is that I don't want to hang out with them either.

So how do I meet people I will actually like and will like me back enough to want to hang out with me?

This. People are so focused on exact measurements when IRL the whole silhouette including shoulders width is taken into account. With their logic 35-24-36 is a pear and 37-24-36 is an apple.

Religious minorities have always had suspicions cast on them but for a large part of their history Jews were ONLY a minority living in Christian and Islamic societies so it's a big part of their and those cultures about having them as "guests" aka outsiders. Also Jews specifically caught flack more than other minorities because in their religion there isn't as strict customs against usery so a lot of Jews were given the role of financiers by Christian and Muslim leaders who's faiths restricted them from partaking in certain money practices so that in turn became a big part of Jewish culture. And when things go wrong people tend to follow the money for someone to blame, the "jewish bankers are out to get us" is a hundreds of years old trope.

If you're in uni, join clubs. It's the most cliche and pushed thing, but honestly, clubs are where it's at.

I used to really like cosplaying when I entered uni, and while my school did have an anime club (I did join that too, there were some surprisingly genuinely, normal, great people there mixed in with all the cringey weebs) we also had a cosplay club. I became friends with a lot of members and the eboard, and eventually ended up rooming with some of them after my first year (where I had randos for roommates who were… alright). Not only did I learn a fuck ton of useful sewing and prop making techniques that were actually useful to my hobby, but all my friends and I had very, very similar taste in shows and other stupid shit that college students like (like memes) so we were always hanging out and always having a good time. Even though we became friends because of this hobby, we stayed friends because we genuinely meshed well as people. While I'm not friends with a lot of these girls anymore (long story, but the fact that it was a bunch of cosplayers might be telling enough lol), the ones that I am still friends with are definitely people that I cherish and I know I'll be life long friends with.

Sorry, got carried away reminiscing about my college years lol. In hindsight, so much of my uni experience was actually a shitshow, but having something to look forward to every week and becoming friends with some really great people because of this club really made it all worth it. I always think highly of my uni years even though I vehemently hate some of those girls and administration was awful. Your university should have a club list somewhere on its website! Sometimes they'll even link the club's facebook group if they have one. If not, keep an eye out for the club fair that's usually at the start of each semester. Go to the GI meetings of all the clubs that pique your interest and see how the crowd is. Even if the thought of going alone is scary, most clubs are really nice and welcoming of new members! 1) Because it's the nice thing to do, and 2) clubs ALWAYS want new members. We were always super happy to have people return to our meetings past the first week! Club meetings tend to be in the evening when classes are all done, which might be a hassle if you live off campus, but definitely check them out!

Good luck anon! I hope you'll find your circle of friends! University years are an amazing time.

i think its to do with hormones, a taller man will probably produce more testosterone or something like that, so the penis also grows slightly longer. i mean it makes sense, tifs who take testosterone often end up growing a larger clitoris iirc.

i cant imagine height impacting vaginal length by more than a few millimeters, and who knows how youd even measure tightness. the reddit poster also sounded like he had some kind of creepy racial fetish tbh.

Asking here since I don't know where the advice thread is. Anyway, there's a Japanese artist on twitter whose art I really love. I want to know what brushes and program they use since they're that Akihiko Yoshida/Naoki Ikushima style brush that I've been searching forever for. I don't know how to approach them, though. Their DMs are open, but how should I send the message? I don't know if I should try to write a message in English that translates easily or if I should write something simple and run it through google translate. The latter seems weebish for me, and I've seen a couple people who're fluent in Eng and Japanese say not to fuck with translators since they're so shitty. Also I feel sorta worried I'll come off as disrespectful when I love his art so much. Any ideas?

It might be a little intrusive, depending on the artist so you might get a no or no response, but just be extra apologetic and say it's ok if they don't want to share. Actually, Google translate is surprisingly ok with simple Japanese (enough to get the point across), and if they know you're a foreigner it's probably fine enough. I would first see how much they interact with people on Twitter though, cause if they're not very talkative and don't reply a lot, they might not want random people sending DMs

It's not a big deal. The pet can walk away to another room or you can blow the smoke out the window. Most animals don't give af and will stay in the room with you even if you give them the option to leave. The smoke will float to the top of the room and they'll be down by the floor so it's not as bad as it could be.

Obviously some pets are more sensitive than others and if they show signs of discomfort then the person should stop smoking weed around them but for the most part it's not as bad as everyone is making it out to be.

If anything it's better for both partners involved and will create a more stable relationship in the long term. It's not too late to find someone. Keep your eyes open and if a man that you like shows interest in you, just be receptive and open to the idea of getting to know him more.

That spoilered picture in the pinkpill thread got me thinking: what do people mean when they say a girl has a good ass?

While its true that promiscuous women dont get lucky in relationships, neither do celibate virgin women. Idk about america but there's 0% chance for a virgin woman to find an actual good husband here. Literally never gonna happen.

What really makes me sad in your post though is that you seem to be doing all this for a husband. Like, you didnt have sex to have a good marriage and now you want to have sex but just because of finding a husband. Like, what are you doing for yourself here? Your family and religion are so toxic for making you think like this.

is the discussion around celibacy still a huge thing in the west? it's interesting how this plays out so differently in different societies. i'm living in an islamic country and having sex before marriage as a woman is a deal breaker or a reason to murder for 90% of the retarded straight male population here, even if they weren't virgins themselves. even if a man doesn't care the society pressures them like "are you a cuck? how can she be the mother of your children?" and shit. i thought that luckily it's not as important in western societies anymore.

I think you're lying but in case you're not: which country exactly?

words like thot were not initially used by some 4ch autists and certainly not by muslim men in saudi arabia. And also, why are western women fighting against slutshaming IN west? I am not saying a woman shouldn't fight against that because I don't believe a woman should get harassed just because she wants to prostitute/sleep with many men, but to say to a 25 year old virgin girl that it's just a meme to not be able to find a good husband is a big fat cope and a lie based on insecurity LOL.

This sentiment here is why I hate men and their weird entitlement to womens bodies.

So it's disgusting where you are from (and other places) for a woman to be promiscuous outside of marriage but not for a man? Yet the men are most likely homophones too and do not maintain their virginal status for their life partner so who are they fucking?

I hate how essentially all of culture and legality for women is based on a man's perceived respect for us. They want us all virgins saving ourselves for their special cock, so they're fucking women out there they deem not worthy enough of wife status? Then we don't have bodily autonomy because men can't birth life so they have to regulate it. And don't get me started on the amount of men that compare pregnancy to a sickness of the mind, where the woman has lost her senses and can only think of the cock and now she's up the duff and she has to bear the burden because she's such a nasty slut! No mention of the men out there soiling all these women from the virtuous virginal dating pool.

Thank god for men always on the sidelines ranking us and considering if we have done enough for their respect.

in turkey, it's not ruled by the sharia law like saudi arabia or anything so it's not as bad as these places but our current government is far-right and fucked up all progressions we had with their conservative muslim agenda. honor killings are still extremely common, we see them happening every day and the worst part is the courts often blame the victim. there is this absolute bullshit called "good conduct abatement" where they lower the rapists and honor murderers' jailtime if the victim was wearing a skirt, wearing makeup, "didn't struggle against the perpetrator so it was probably consensual", wasn't a virgin and other fucked up excuses. i didn't mean to invalidate the shit women in the west go through, it's just sad that these things are still happening in the world.

But yeah turkish men treat their women as whores regardless if they are kurdish or not and it sucks. Most of them are the biggest sluts too so I am baffled. I knew a turkish (not kurdish btw) man who said if you're married to a woman you can't rape her.

Do YOU want to lose it? How would you like to lose it? That's all that matters.

Have it if you want with someone you love and trust. If you don't want to that's okay too. Waiting just because "you're supposed to" is retarded, as is being promiscuous to one-up a guy or prove to yourself that you're desirable.

I don't know if promiscuous women are a norm, I think it depends on culture a lot. Where I come from it's sort of in between, I knew girls who lost their virginity at 14-16 (our legal age is 14 as long as both parties are within one year of each other) which I personally wouldn't want but they did and that's fine. Where I live now women treat sex very casually and sleep around a lot more than my home country (Balkans), but I also have friends from Russia who are super conservative and marriage-oriented. I lost mine at 19 to my first ever serious boyfriend and I don't regret it even though we're not together anymore. I think I would be very fucked up emotionally now if I'd lost it to some random guy back then. I was some years behind my friends, though, and most of them didn't give it too much importance. People are different and a lot of the advice you get also stems from their emotional experiences, some of them warn you against it because they got burned and are bitter, others are bitter because they couldn't find anyone, some feel called out because they lost their v card too early and regret it, etc.

In my experience people with a lot of sexual partners, both men and women, tend to be really jaded and don't treat sex as anything special. If you are not the same you might get hurt by being with someone like that. If you also think of it as "just sex" maybe you'd find someone with fewer sexual partners, or someone who sees it as something special, too demanding and clingy. At the end of the day though, only do what you feel comfortable with, stay safe and don't let people's attitudes affect your decision too much.

Don't be in a rush to lose it and stay responsible. Protip: casual sex/hookups for women are way worse than it is for men. Men won't go out of their way to satisfy someone they see as easy.

28% for Marmara region? That's a lot, I assume it's because of the big population numbers in Istanbul and the immigrants from the eastern/southeastern region?

yeah, the statistics of the marmara region is mostly due to istanbul being extremely crowded. the other cities in the region are actually rather safe. this map isn't honor killing specific but it shows the recorded femicide statistics of 2010-2017. the most populous cities have a higher murder rate. it might also have to do with murders in more underdeveloped cities going unrecorded.

Are you me? I'm going to be 25 in less than a week and I'm still a kissless virgin. The reasons are that I've never been into men all that much because I'm picky, and there were barely any opportunities for me to have a boyfriend in the first place since I live with my family and they're religious and judgmental. My sisters have or had boyfriends and they hide it so they wouldn't be kicked out or worse by our parents but I wouldn't take the risk myself. I also wish I could date women but that's even worse in terms of risks. It's weird seeing some people my age getting married or having kids while I haven't done anything yet despite wanting to. I feel like at my age anyone who could be interested in me would find it weird that I never had a bf so they would avoid me as a result too. I don't want to hook up with random people though, I'm too paranoid when it comes to health issues and I don't want to catch something.

i tried finding a bf via dating apps but there's just so much trash to find the few good gems, so its a huge time consuming thing to do. literally a thousand swipes left to one swipe right type of ratio (ig i have high standards too). the ones that i were interested in either fetishized me or just wanted hook ups despite having 'searching for a gf' in their bio. some i could tell were manipulative abusers just by messages alone and promptly deleted them. the one brief encounter i had with dating apps resulted in an 8 month texting episode with someone i thought i wanted… but he ghosted me because he still was in love with his ex.

im hoping when i go back to school again ill find a nice guy that isn't a creep. but then again im socially awkward and inept at flirting..like i don't even know how to approach a cute guy and converse like a normal human being. plus i get super anxious if i DO find someone attractive and tend to avoid them like the plague lol.

I absolutely LOVE ameru's packaging. She uses regular brown paper, then adds a nice touch- usually some paper twine wrapped around the package with something stamped into the package. Her wax seals came sealed with wax stamps on the packages! I've ordered from her a lot and she gets really creative in the way she wraps things (if you go through her tagged photos on instagram (ameruu) or through her posted photos on twitter (ameru) you'll probably find more packaging from people who ordered from her/posted by herself). I think there's a really nice simplistic, rustic charm to her packaging. She usually uses recyclable mailers and decorates the outside with washi tape, and every package she sends has a tiny little card wishing the buyer well.

How can I look neat and pretty like pic related? I've tried to dress myself in a more feminine way but I always look like a frumpy tomboy and feel too self-conscious of my body. Whenever I try to look nice I always end up looking like I have severe autism.

I have coarse, thick hair with no shape to it. It's bobbed now because whenever I wore it long I looked like a homely horse girl and it really didn't suit me. It also takes forever to dry and I don't know how to style it. I have a shortish diamond (or heart-shaped?) face, a widow's peak and kind of weird elongated ears. I can't see very well so I wore glasses until recently which made every outfit I wore look frumpy.
My body is average, I'm a skinnyfat ruler with slightly bigger thighs and bum (but narrow, boyish hips) and I'm frequently bloated due to IBS. I suit autumn colours but many of them are hard to find modern clothes in and combine with common ones like black, grey, white and navy blue.

I don't care too much about self-expression through clothing, I'm just trying really hard to find a comfy and feminine style that suits my body and face without looking like a dork and I've been failing miserably for years.
Anyone have any advice?

My family moved my brother down into the basement so no one else has to live in his filth that he doesn't clean up. He emerges for meals and brings his laundry up occasionally. My mom makes him clean everything like once a year, but other than that, he just fucks off so the rest of us can have a clean house. He even has his own bathroom down there.

You can't do much expect for wait for them to move out or move out yourself. They will never change.
My brother is a disgusting person who has done disgusting things I can't forgive him for and I try as hard as I can to treat him like I don't acknowledge his existence. One word answers, not looking at him in group conversations, closing the door to my room when he's around, etc.
Mine is a slob as well but at least for the most part he limits his mess to his own room. He makes the bathroom and kitchen dirty but as long as I have my own clean space (my room) I don't get angry anymore.

Yeah, that's kind of what I thought but didn't want to admit it. If he hasn't learned or felt the need to grow up at this point, he never will. My parents expect me to clean up after him so he doesn't feel any urge to do it himself. I try to avoid my brother as much as possible too but when he wants something, he sucks up to me and I fall for it every time because deep down I still would like to get on well with him. I just wish he knew how much him being a slob/being loud upsets me and how much it's making me resent him. I don't even want to speak to him again after I move out for my own sanity.

>>418533
Ugh that's disgusting, you have my sympathies. I'm job-searching at the moment to afford moving out. That's exactly the state I'm in also, I'm constantly stressed out from having to look at/clean his cheese-encrusted plates or pick up his coat and shoes that he leaves on the sofa when he comes home just so I can sit down. He moved out for a year to go to college and omfg the stories he has about the state they lived in (by choice) make me gag and he thinks they're "funny".

You say your hair takes long to dry. Do you own a blowdrier ? Invest in one and start blowdrying your hair. Learning to style it with a blowdrier comes pretty instinctivly imo. You can also use a heat protectant hair product if you're affraid of damaging it.

What kind of frame do your glasses have? Frames can change so so so much!

I feel like many stores carry autumn colors. Have you tried thrifting though? I also feel like autumn colors don't necessarily go well with black and many shades of grey. What kind of shapes of clothing do you wear?
It's the start of summer so try maybe a few thin A-line dresses or maybe Reformation dresses if you have the money for that. I think from what you said some cute silk or linen dress could look cute.
When autumn comes, try wearing thin cashemir jumpers. Try also adding some minimalistic golden or silver (depending on your skin tone) jewellery. Geometrical minimalistic discreet stuff like earing you could find at Cos or And Other Stories…

I really don't understand how people think it's basically fine that certain western 'democracies' are able to have the same leader for over fifteen years. No one else gets weirded out by it?

How are German's so content with Merkel running the government since '05?Even with the refugee crisis, an issue in which she hugely fueled the fire and riled up divisions in Europe so harsh that it's caused the far right to make the biggest gains since the 1930s; didn't sink her. How is 'second term blues' not a thing in Germany? She's on something like her fifth term now. It just seems like, looking from the outside, the democracy in that country doesn't function like I see democracies functioning in other countries.

Putin regularly gets criticized for his tyrannical hand in Russia, but he hasn't been in power for the same amount of time Merkel has.

I've read a little history of the BDR, and it for the most part seems like a well functioning, decentralized government for most of its history. The only real explanation I can think of is that Germany has an overabundance of semi-senile boomers that just vote conservative everytime, completely oblivious to the world around them.

Is it bad to wash your hair everyday? Every time I try to google it I always find conflicting information.

My hair is fine and straight, I currently wash it every other day at night. I can get through the entirety of the next day with my hair looking and feeling fine, but it's the next morning after not washing it when it suddenly becomes super visibly oily. I use dry shampoo but that only helps for the first few hours. I used to wash my hair everyday but I felt like that just made it overproduce oil and my hair would be oily by night time rather than by the next morning… Since my hair is so fine and thin, I'd rather not do anything to make it more brittle and vulnerable to falling off my head lol

No. 418835

>>418830
fellow fine hair anon here, keep doing what you're doing, washing it every day will make it oily sooner just as you observed. maybe try washing your hair in the morning to prolong its cleanliness? although I could never make that work as there's TONS of flyaways and it's hard to manage when it's super clean. as long as you don't cause dry shampoo to build up to the degree it can cause hair breakage, you should be fine!
also, bit unrelated, but you can also invest in satin pillowcases to help avoid hair breakage. plus they feel nice on your face lol

If you can, try not washing it (with shampoo) for 5 days or a week and then wash it every other day and see if there's a difference. I also have fine and straight hair and I managed to "train" my scalp to produce less oil but I heard it doesnt work for everyone

>>418836
I've tried that before in hopes of trying to "reset" the oil production and it only helped to reset it a little bit from all the daily shampooing (going from becoming greasy by the end of the day to greasy by the next morning). At least it worked a bit!

I'd highly recommend taking a self defense class if you have the money because they'll help you prepare for all kinds of situations and make you feel more confident that you'll make it out of them alive. Buy yourself some sports gear (like a baseball bat or a hockey stick) but check the laws of your country for using these as weapons. If your country's laws are like mine, you just want to distract the attacker (go for the balls or clap your hands against his ears to deafen him) long enough to escape and seek help now that you have evidence that he's a threat to you. Knocking someone unconscious here is considered "unnecessary violence" and could get you in trouble instead. Just be familiar with the laws and adjust your course of action based on them.

(bee injury and death up ahead)
My bf found a bee lying on the ground and took it in to give it sugarwater, but after it crawled straight into the sticky mess and ended up wriggling on it's back he realised its entire abdomen had been emptied out by a predator. It was still vigorously trying to crawl forward, but if we had put it outside it would just be a sticky treat for ants, and because of the sugarwater it would be inhumane to freeze it. I thought it best to end its' suffering quickly but he wanted to treat it as he would prefer to be treated in that situation, by being left to die quietly. It seems to have passed finally. He originally found it alone and sat with the bee for a while before I came home so I didn't feel right just demanding he kill it as if I'm some higher authority, but I regret not ending it's suffering earlier.

How do I respond to my uncle's failure at humor? It pisses me off so I've opted to literally ignore it, but that hasn't worked out, as I will explain.

Example: Today I brought my bunny outside on a harness. While she was eating a dandelion, I started pulling out the fur she's shedding (it doesn't hurt her). As he sees what I'm doing, he comments something like "Oh good, remove her fur so she's tastier to eat". He always does these "jokes" but they aren't even clever. I literally just chose to ignore it and I guess my other family told him he was too mean and the fact that they defended me makes me feel weird. I'm an adult and I just want to defend my bunny but also let him know he's annoying.

In the past I responded to a similar comment by mentioning how his precious dog could easily be food too. It didn't help anything really.

Why haven't men been sexualized in clothes as much as women have been since the mid-late 2000s? I consume a lot of medias from the 60s-90s and noticed much of the male fashions popular of the time were just as skimpy, tight, and sexy as were the female fashions, with it being at it's peaking during the 70's and 80's. Now, it seems like female clothes have gotten far more skimpier and revealing while male clothes are extremely conservative and baggy not giving a hint of any shape in general. Why is that? It feels so sexist to me.

Yes, it is. They are conditioned to seeing women with makeup and you will always appear plainer. It doesn't mean that you won't find someone.

Rigor mortis only effects the large skeletal muscles. Viagra would ware off after his heart stops pumping since it works by increasing blood flow. Sometimes male corpses can have erections if he died face down, sitting or especially from hanging from his blood pooling in his lower half and sometimes spinal cord damage can give men erections. They used to call it "angel lust" but it wore off after a while when the body was moved. There's a famous mistranslated that lead people to think Muhammad died with one. In theory you could just put a tourniquet (or tight cockring) around a boner he already had before he died or if that was happening to his corpse and it'd stay erect until it started to lose integrity from decomposing.

I once got a printer from them that there was later a recall for and they sent me a brand new $400 printer ASAP that was from one of their highest quality lines, and it was a much more expensive one than my shoddy little defective one. My track record with their sewing machines has also been excellent. It depends on what you need the printer for. If youre going to be printing out a lot of paperwork, go laser. If you need to print out all kinds of stuff and esp pics, I'd go with the ink jet. My experience with lasers is that they truly are more reliable.

This is going to a bit long winded but hang in there with me. I have a YouTube channel and I recently started featuring my face, something I’ve been pretty reluctant about doing because I was a total cow/snow material for most of my life. My only real excuse being that I was young and raised with pretty low moral standards. I’ve since gone through years of therapy, I’ve quit drinking, and I’m happy to report that I’ve been a compassionate normie for the last five ish years. My stupid question is this: when someone I know irl inevitably finds my channel and tries to cancel me, what possible apology can I make that would appease this kind of community? I’ve been browsing here for a few years and if it’s shown me anything, it’s that you can’t pander to critics and I feel like I might have to do that very thing if someone decides to “expose” the actions I deeply regret everyday. How do I avoid this? I’ve never dropped my own name but I have tattoos that are pretty unique to me and it would simple to figure out who I am. When I was a cow, there were a dozen or so people that I hurt that could probably still hold a grudge over my actions, and if they were smart, it wouldn’t be hard to dig up receipts. Sorry about this poorly worded ramble but I honestly just don’t know what to do. I don’t want to lose a platform open to the likes of the Paul brothers just because I was a dickish 19 year old. But I also don’t want to address my actions head on as any sort of a reflection of who I am today. So how do I apologize for who I used to be? How do i make everyone happy when I used to try to piss everyone off?

Sometimes it gets uppity and won't make several back and fourth transactions a day but it hasn't stolen all the money from me yet.

Avoid the option that's called something like "charge for a service" where you email them a receipt and they directly put their CC info in the link it sends them, there's an option to correct the "return address" with a fake addy halfway through but if it's missed it sends whoever is charging the customers full address rofl.

I'm trying to understand sales tax in my state (NYC/NYS) but I'm still confused as shit. The official government website says that there is no tax on clothing priced $110 or under. When I worked at a clothing only retail store, this was true- I never saw tax on items under $110. Yet when I go somewhere else, say Target or F21, I do get charged sales tax. I've also seen this contradiction with food too. The website says:

>The following purchases are exempt from sales tax: Unprepared and packaged food products, dietary foods, certain beverages, and health supplements sold by food markets


Of course, when I buy food from the supermarket or Target there's no tax… but there are other places (not restaurants) that DO charge me tax (I can't think of any off the top of my head right now but I'm sure its happened). I'm so confused. Is there a loophole somewhere, or are these businesses who charge tax when they're not supposed to just breaking the law?

You may be getting charged for items on the receipt that are non tax except. It appears there are class action law suits against Forever 21 for not adhering to tax code, but check your receipts next time to make sure it is the actual clothing items you are being charged for and not something else.

am i the asshole for not wanting to date or fuck a man who has had sex with a prostitute? i don't really care if a guy is a virgin or not, i don't care if he has fucked many people unless he doesn't have stds but i wouldn't want to be with someone who has done it with a hooker. it just makes me see them as someone who was desperate enough to pay to get laid and thinks they can just dehumanize women with money.

I went there last year for a week but couldn't really enjoy the trip since I had my periods way earlier than planned and couldnt swim at all. The friend who went with me was an annoying cheap nitpicking idiot the whole week out of nowhere so I couldnt do everything I planned. Anyway. For Monaco you just take the bus for 1.5€ and you can visit it in one day. Take the ferry to avoid walking through the entire city (my friend didnt want to spend 2€ on it so we walked way too much and wasted time). Go to the casino if you want, I wanted to go but again, my friend didn't want to follow me and insisted I stayed with her. There's the ocean museum, it's really good. The museum about the pince's family was boring to me though. There's a garden with a bunch of cactus at the top of the hill but it was closed when we arrived. If you want to thoroughly visit Monaco TAKE THE ELEVATORS, you'll see what I mean once you'll be there. I also spend a day in Cannes but I mostly stayed in la croisette and the small island with the prison where the iron masked man was held at some point, which I recommend.

As for Nice, if you like going shoping go to the Galeries Lafayette and just the main street in general but if you already have a big galeries Lafayette in your city don't bother. I know the ones in my city aren't as big. There's another casino in la promenade des anglais iirc. I visited the orthodox church, the Matisse museum and a museum right next to it about archeology. If you're ok with walking a lot you should really climb that big hill/tower next to the beach, the sight is really beautiful since you can see the whole city from the top of the hill. You should even picnic there if possible. I'm sure I missed some things during my trip though so look for more info somewhere else as well. Are you French? If you don't speak French you should be fine because everyone was talking to me in English since I'm not white and I looked like a tourist despute just being from another French region.

I found a roleplaying discord server with people who don't seem to be fucking retards 24/7.
That's what I thought at first, but I started to check the info and the rules and, oh boy.

The roleplaying system involves raping and the goblin mating system from Goblin Slayer (aka, raping non-goblin female creatures to impregnate them and make more goblins). Also, they have this super creepy rule that forces users with female characters to post their "fertile" days (like, wtf). And if a male engages in anal sex, they must roll a dice to see if they got a disease.

The feminist in me is telling me to run far away but at the same time, my hunger for socialization wants me to stay.

It's pretty normal to not be able to tell your right from your left, especially if you're not someone that uses that every day. However if you guys are literally getting lost on the way to familiar everyday locations then you might have a learning disability such as dyspraxia.
Getting diagnosed is only helpful as self reassurance though, all you can actually do is accept that you have different methods than others. It's fine though, who cares if you need to use your phone to get literally everywhere? Everyone uses helpful apps and is glued to their phone at all times these days.

i have a friend who is a professional seamstress for movie and theater production and she got started with hand sewing clothes for dolls and her cat. i hand sew most all things if i can help it, some people really never learn and it can become daunting if they are working on a project that becomes tedious or takes a while because they are used to how fast a machine can normally work.

its just something that will take time to get stitches to be straight and neat but its also (imo) easier to spot mistakes and take out stitches if you muss up a little bit. its a wonderful skill and hobby you might as well just pull the trigger and try a small project. it can be really rewarding.

Just like anything, sewing takes practise. However there are lots of very simple things you can make which are really easy. Making doll clothes is actually a great place to start imo, you won't feel like you're wasting loads of material if you fuck up, and because they're so small you won't need a machine.
You can find lots of free patterns online, just start with something simple, look up some basic stitches, watch some youtube tutorials to learn how to follow a pattern.

It was so hard to make these. I only had a hand mixer and the treats involve mixing a lot of dry ingredients with wet, so I had to take extra time in between bursts of mixing to fold the mixture in on itself with a spatula. Plus, I forgot something at the store and had to run all the way back. I decided to make extra so he can take some into work and share with coworkers.

I didn’t hit puberty until like age 13… so I didn’t seriously start shaving until freshman year of high school. I’d say whenever it becomes “necessary” (bothersome, what have you) it should be done. My mom pretty much encouraged it by buying me a razor and teaching me the proper technique because she had noticed my dark leg hair. My pubes didn’t get very thick until like 11th-12th grade so I didn’t start shaving my bikini line for swimming until then but I definitely think it’s fucking weird for a little girl to be shaving it completely for other reasons.

Casual reminder you can get that parasite from undercooked meat or underwashed vegetables and living in a hot climate increases your risk. It's pretty likely you already have it and living just fine.

IDK 10 is kind of weird for that area but I remember at that age my friends on the playground discussing who was shaving and one girl said she already shaves her arms because she had really dark hair, one girl said her legs, one girl said she had hairs on her toes that she shaved. And at 11 in middle school then tons of girls were shaving all over including bikini lines because we had magazines like Seventeen and knew pubes sticking out of a swimsuit wasn't socially accepted.

It's weird bc the person in the screenshot said her mom taught her to shave her armpits and she magically applied that logic to her pubic area but somehow that's normal. she was either groomed, or extremely shamed about all body hair, or it's a tranny fantasy.

I'm >>421349 and I started nicking mom's razors shortly after that incident.

I loved my bf but he was too childish/goofy for me and it annoyed me a lot. A lot of the time I was thinking, it would be nice if he were more of a gentleman and classy. I felt guilty a lot because I think he should be with someone who appreciates that part of him instead of someone who wants to change part of his personality. Is that wrong to think? I tried to explain that to him and he told me he "would've worked on it" but now that I tried to break up with him it's too late.

I don't know. Everyone has issues or things about them that drive you nuts. It's completely normal in a relationship for us to be annoyed by our partners. Or for us to want for them to change.

I've been in my relationship for years and I wondered the same thing about a year in. Ultimately, my partner's quirks were something I came to love, and even though he gets on my nerves to this day, it's what makes him who he is. If it is really something you can't live with, then I would absolutely say it's better to part ways. But for the reason you described… you are going to run into that everywhere. No one can meet our expectations in love.

He has a right to be hurt, but that's not completely your issue. Part of being PART-ners is to grow together and that's probably why he is upset. Spin it around and imagine if he broke up with you for "not being funny". It'd hurt, because 1.) he didn't accept you for that part of yourself and 2.) he did not COMMUNICATE a desire for him to change, which implies a devaluation of the relationship.

I mean, yes, if both parties can acknowledge the the disconnect and work together on it, it can be a beautiful thing.

Anon said their personalities didn't match, not that he just had some quirks, so giving advice to just "work on it" seemed naive to me. Yes, it hurts to be broken up with just for being yourself, but it also hurts to continually compromise yourself under the guise of "working through it". It also sounds like it was pretty early in the relationship where asking someone to change seems controlling. But you're right. There's a fine line between wanting to mold someone to your tastes and wanting to grow together with a person.

I still did love him, but every time we hung out I would get annoyed by at least one thing. Is that normal? I really tried to be more accepting and I would recognize when I was getting irrationally annoyed, but it's so hard to control.

Thing is, I've known him for 10 years and his personality didn't bother me at all until he became my boyfriend. In fact we were best friends. After that I guess a lot of the time he was still treating me like one of the brahs, when I felt like he should be acting more like a gentleman. He wasn't rude or abusive or anything, and he's very loyal, just most of the time he'd act like a silly 12 year old (despite him being 8 years older than me). He's done some sweet things (which I praised him a lot for hoping he would do them more) but most of the time he's just stupidly goofy and sometimes cringy. But if that's his personality isn't it fucked up to ask him to change the 100 things he's doing that I don't like?

I feel a lot of regret but I didn't know how to deal with it. I still have some trauma from my last relationship when I would bring up complaints in a kind way, but my ex would start crying and threaten to hurt himself, so that's why I opted to breaking up with my friend instead of confronting him about the things I didn't like

I haven't slept in days deciding what to do and I'm afraid I made the wrong choice out of pure retardation. He called me a terrible person and I think he's right.

There is simply no way to change another person deliberately. You can only make them happier or less happy, which indirectly changes them. It's totally impossible to change someone to meet your wishes.

The only thing you can do in relationships is cycle through them until you find someone who is genuinely compatible with you. The same kind of person as, mutual understanding possible, etc. It is very rare but possible.

Everything else in a relationship is fleeting. You will get used to looking at them, and they won't be pretty anymore. That magical feeling of "love" will not remain as bright as it is at the start. But compatibility is permanent. If you're able to speak to your partner the way you speak to yourself in your mind, it will always be an immensely satisfying relationship.

I thought I was SOL and then in like a 3 day period, weeks after I initially applied, I got like 16 responses for interview requests. My advice is to go on ZipRecruiter and other job listing sites and search for what field you want to work in and apply for anything you see. Honestly you might have to apply for like dozens of jobs, it sucks but just keep going!

I have a friend from middle school who I was super close to, but the last two weeks of middle school we just stopped talking. We went to different high schools, I changed phones and lost his number (back when phones weren't connected via gmail or icloud so nothing was transferred), and he was never big on social media so he doesn't really exist online at all. None of our mutual friends from middle school have any contact with him, all I have is an AIM screenname that he never logs into. I found his mom's contact info (she was on the PTA for our school so her name popped up on old school newsletters when I was trying to look him up) and I was wondering… is it crossing the line to email her like "hey, I was your son's friend in middle school and just wanted to get in touch with him again"? Granted, we haven't talked or seen each other in years (although there was a time I got on the subway and a boy looked very much like him, we couldn't stop stealing glances at each other but I decided against speaking to him) and I don't even know if he would care or anything to speak with me.

Yeah she looks a lot older

I don't see the appeal of her as offensive as it sounds, if you showed someone her exact face and body and claimed she was 27 she would be excused as just another basic white girl in her 20s, which imo is more alarming because it means people are more attracted to her age than her

Hard agree. I'm really not one to nitpick about anybody looking old, but that video shocked me.

Nevertheless I'm very worried for her, especially since nobody sees anything wrong about her hanging out with Drake and the likes.

I think a big part of that is her styling. Look at how much makeup they put on her. Look at her clothes.

It would be some great trollin' if she was really ten years older than she says. I think Marilyn Monroe was a little older than she was supposed to be, I saw some photos of her where the formation of fat/general bodyshape was more similar to my mom (I should specify there was a big difference to the version we see in movies, not tryna humblebrag). She was supposed to be 35 I think at the time/near the age she died. I suspect lying is common.
I saw a tinfoil on lolcow which was that they intentionally cast "older" looking actresses for child roles to help feed into the pedo notion that girls are oh so mature at 14!!!! Casually ignoring the fact most people are still little girls at that age, physically and mentally. And even if you "look" more mature that doesn't mean these girls want their ageing asses.

I'd say you're more likely to get something that'll last you a while than not. Most of my stuff from there lasts, but there's some stuff that will fuck up easier than others, mainly their extra fine merino wool stuff. As a former employee, that's the shit I'd see get returned the most. Skirts are pretty great, a lot of them have pockets nowadays. The care instructions say to line dry for everything for the best possible results and to keep the products lasting for as long as possible, but you can throw that shit in the dryer just fine most of the time.

Some non-collaboration stuff will sell out really fast, but I'd say most shit goes on clearance, so if you really like something but don't feel like paying full or promotion price, just wait and that shit will usually go down for super cheap lol.

I've noticed that starting from the early 2000s up until around 2015/2016 (ie when pastel goth and later on, IG baddie champagne and milennial pinks started to really hit the mainstream), a lot of American brands liked to almost exclusively push out hot pink and bubblegum pink products.

Yes, definitely! Depending on the store, some will usually put all of the markdown items into one single spot, others (like mine- which was a flagship) had them a bit more spread out and organized by price point. There is always, ALWAYS some shit that goes on markdown. Weekly promotion items (if there are any) are spread out throughout the store and I think start on Thursday or Friday.

Markdowns are done every Tuesday, so if you're eyeing something for a certain price, checking on Tuesdays is the best. Some things might not be stickered to the new markdown price just yet so ask to double check (the price point signs change first, then the stickering happens).

Online has a completely different inventory than physical stores, so the inventory of sale items will be different (though usually what goes on markdown is the same both online and on in all the physical stores).

Carry some sort of self defense weapon if it's legal where you live. Always trust your gut if you feel like something's wrong and always have some kind of an excuse prepared if you feel like you need to dip out. Do you have a good friend or family member you trust? You can set up a buddy system of sorts, let them know when you're about to meet up with a guy and text them when you get home so they know you're safe. You can also use them as an SOS, like have them call you in the middle of a date and pretend it's an emergency to give you an excuse to leave if you feel uncomfortable.

It's good to be aware of your surroundings and prepared for the worst but don't let paranoia rule your life. Have you considered taking up martial arts or some other kind of self defense? I don't do them myself but I've heard from a lot of women that it helped with their self-confidence. If you know how to defend yourself properly it might help you overcome your fears.

What the fuck could be biting me while I sleep?

For the past few nights, I kept waking up scratching a very itchy part of my body. I realized that I still had my window open from the winter time (heat is crazy in my building) so I figured it was bugs coming in at night and biting me. Problem solved… for a night. Now, I still wake up in the middle of the night scratching some part of my body.

I don't think its bed bugs. I checked my bed, there seems to be no skin shed, no blood stains, no fecal matter, and aside from one area of my body, the bites are usually 1-2 bites in one area of the body each night. The one area that is an exception is on my hand, there are 6 dots in a semi circle, and the area swelled up for a day.

Honestly, I don't even know if it's something biting me, or my eczema getting worse. It's usually limited to very small parts of my hands, and was just starting to get worse again, and I honestly can't tell if the dots on my hands are from bug bites or just eczema (I've had similar bumps, but never in a formation like this or swelling).

The other itchy spots don't look like it, and honestly I can't tell if some of them are even bites or not because even though a red bump appears, I mean, that usually happens when I itch a spot for too long.

It's either
>one character could be gay because it could actually be implied in the story, for example two male characters who live together, don't get married and are said to be as close as a couple in a novel written at a time period where portraying a gay relationship would have gotten the writer in jail and the book censored, or a male video game character you could have optionally dated in the game but the option was removed during development, except all the scenes and dialogues between the two characters about that would have led to that option are still in the game (Yosuke in Persona 4).
>character is portraying some kind of more or less offensive stereotype or are gender non-conforming. Nothing else is hinted and the writers don't confirm anything or confirm that the characters are straight. People love to use Disney villains or Mulan as examples of queer-coded characters.

Basically it's the sort of argument you could put in an half-assed uninspired essay about books you have to read for your high school literature class if you want a better grade. It's very subjective and 99% of the time "queer-coded" is used to mean "I read too many fanfictions about this character and I want him to hook up with this specific male character in canon, if it doesn't happen then it's queer-baiting."

Most women don’t become strippers unless they’re poverty stricken, and those who come from poverty suddenly have large amounts of money have no idea how to manage it. It’s a cycle, that’s why those who were poor in childhood will often continue to be poor in adulthood even if they have well paying jobs because they had no role models for money management

The average US stripper does not make a lot of money to begin with. Also, people tend to spend cash a lot faster than credit. With "stripper culture" (faux luxury, buying big brands, partying, etc.) it's hard for the girls to save money. They get locked into the lifestyle living paycheck-to-paycheck. Reminds me of how the coal miners used to be constantly in debt to the companies they worked for because the companies owned everything– grocery store, where they lived, etc. There was never a way out because the entire game was fixed. Stripping is similar in that way, but for different reasons obviously.

why don’t they make pants for tall women? like at all? i know we’re kinda outside the norm so i don’t really expect to find them in fast fashion stores but holy shit i’m 22 and never in my life have i owned pants long enough in the rise or the leg. it’s like they just don’t exist at all? i’ve even gone as far as trying the Big and Tall store which obviously is for men and that was a massive fail because i’m in fact not a scrote and the sizing is just all fucking wrong. going up in women’s sizes does nothing but get WIDER and not taller. so even if they’re long enough my ass looks like a baggy full diaper and it’s next to impossible to take in jeans without the seams getting all fucky.

i guess my last resort is to find a denim tailor and have them make a pair specifically for me but holy shit that’s gonna cost so much. why couldnt i just be 5’7 or something.

American Eagle sells long and extra-long lengths for all sizes of their jeans, not sure if you've checked them out. I'm average height and buy the regular length though so I can't vouch for how well they would fit a tall girl but according to their website the x-long inseam is 36 inches.

I sometimes get this weird feeling about my existence. Not in a "what's the purpose of life?" way, more like "why do I exist?".

I just wonder why. Before I was born, I just wasn't there. There were other people anyway, the world existed but not me. And now that I exist, I experience the world with my body and ask to myself: "Why can I do these things? Why do I exist? Why am I myself?"

I know everyone exist too, and experiences the world in the same way I do. But I'm the only one that hears my inner thoughts, I'm the only one that gets to see through my eyes.

It's just weird. Some people may say that "it's your soul uwu" but I don't like that answer because I know it's not real.
Have you anons thought about this before? Most of the times I've brought this topic into conversation people don't seem to get it? It's very frustrating.

This is exactly what I was thinking when I began to read your post. I used to think about this when I was a kid. No one will experience anything the same way I can. This train of thought led me to thinking what is my consciousness is completely different from other people's? What if other people aren't real? Or what would happen if I had to think through someone else's mind? Would I cease to exist?

No. 423807

>>423795

No, not like that. It's more like >>423796 said. I also started to question my existence when I was very young! I have this very vivid memory of a 5 year old me wondering why could I look through my eyes and not my best friend's, why was I myself and why was she herself.

The concept of "thinking through someone else's mind" is what gets me everytime. Like, that means we have souls so that couldn't be possible. But at the same time, we aren't a hivemind, each one is an individual. So what's the correct answer? Just, why are we like this? Why are we ourselves?

I know we may not have an answer but I just wanted to know if someone related to what I wrote and I'm glad to see there's at least an anon that wonders the same thing.

I always thought that when I was a kid, too anon. Less now that I'm busy and just trucking along.

>claims to be a oppressed lesbian
Never had a girlfriend or a long term relationship but will have casual sex with men, women and trannies. Any suggestion that maybe she's bisexual will result in cries of homophobia. She endlessly berates her parents for not accepting her and claims that they've abused her for being gay. None of this is true. She didn't come out as a lesbian until she was an adult. The worst thing they do is roll their eyes when she mentions it because her sex life is common knowledge within the family.
>claims to be a feminist
Typical libfem that capes for troons while ignoring the difficulties that actual women go through. Insults her own mother for being working class and tells me that my opinions aren't valid because I have internalised misogyny from being abused as a child. Jokes about TERFs getting beaten and raped.
>claims to be a vegan

I put this to you and to anyone: Mentally stable women are just more likely to communicate or leave a relationship that isn't working out. Because they aren't typically toxic, there is no period of trying to get back together or fighting afterwards.

The reason why you think there's a number of mentally unstable women getting more men is because their relationships are more visible but not for positive reasons. They are more likely to stay in toxic relationships hence the constant bargaining and fighting. There may be attempts to work it out and honeymooning. They bring their personal drama out into more public places and social media whereas a stable person probably wouldn't and would quietly end the relationship.

I picked up my sephora birthday gift in store but then got an email from sephora a few days later reminding me to get my birthday gift… Being the cheap bitch that I am I'd love to snag another set of the DE gift, but I'm gonna buy something online. What's something relatively cheap but still good and useful? I was looking at the eyebrow pencils (I need new eyebrow stuff anyway) but I'm only iffy since Innisfree has a similar one for half the price…

barbara palvin has a fuller figure than most models, i know VS fired her once for gaining weight but i think shes perfect. her measurments are still insane and unrelistic for the average woman, but at 121 lbs at 5'7 she's in the 19-20 bmi range.

Is she all muscle and actually 5'7"? I'm actually only an inch shorter than her according to your description, and I weigh less, but I feel like she looks skinnier than me. Maybe she's breathing in or sucking it in too? She definitely has a smaller waist (or more toned?) than me but has similar proportions. NTA but this gives me something actually achievable if I work out more, although I think when I worked out I was still thicker waisted…maybe I'm just delulu and can't be trusted to judge my own body lol

Her measurments put her waist at anywhere from 23" to 25" depending on the site. Keep in mind that there is a reason shes a model, most women are not "lucky" enough to have that kind of hip to waist ratio or fat and muscle distribution, and thats okay. Barbara looks like she exercises enough to stay toned, but I would not call her "all muscle", she still has a soft look to her.

you aren't delusional anon, as women its hard to get an idea of what our bodies look like, we all have some kind of body dysmorphia, getting fed images from magazines and diet ads and photoshopped instagram girls, its hard to remember whats noramal and whats not.

take your measurments anon, and try putting them into a couple body type calculators, and maybe look into taking a kibbe test if you want to really know your body type and what style will flatter it?

its okay to be thicker waisted, most women aren't gonna be blessed enough to have a <25" waist.

No. 424764

I'm somewhere around 26" but have noticeable hips and people tend to comment on them when I wear clothes that show off my figure. People call me the skinny girl though so even though I have issues about my waist I know I'm not fat. It's just hard to know what I am because I get thrown between body image issues and bravado about my body. Usually I get a pear or bottom-heavy hourglass on calculators.
I tried the Kibbe types test right now and either I'm an outlier or I did this test wrong, I got equal answers in everything but the "natural" section which I didn't get any in…I don't think I have a strong yang to my body but I have a pretty long "line" and look taller than I am and have a prominent facial profile.

Don’t take Kibbe super seriously, it’s just a point or a loose guideline to set you in a direction if you’re feeling lost and to help you realize how much variety there is in beauty, there’s no one “wrong” type in kibbe, whereas the typical body shapes are pretty unflattering to anyone who isn’t a pear or hourglass. try having someone else answer the kibbe test questions for you, then you won’t be limited by your own biases and distortion.

Having an hourglass figure isn't as nice as you'd think. I'd say outer frame is a bit more important.

You know what? IATA and thanks for saying this, as obvious as it is to you I think hearing someone say it is probably good for me. I may be a little over 26 now, idk, but I've always maintained at least a 10" difference between my waist and hips so it's not a huge deal. Literally the only comments I've gotten on my waist are positive, even when I was critical about it to people who could've told me the truth. I guess to me it looks "wide" even if it's not really.

>>424785
tbh I found every example of the Kibbe type pretty/beautiful/cute so even if I biased myself toward certain types, I find them all pretty. Is there a male equivalent test? It'd be a neat experiment for my boyfriend and I to both try it.
I also tallied up my answers separately this time and it looks like I'm facially gamine, flesh-wise something between theatrical romantic and (soft?) classic, and frame-wise dramatic classic/soft dramatic which is something I didn't expect at all. That would really explain why I looked at my answers and thought wtf am I.

>>424887
Also yeah. I think girls on places like here lie about their waists too. In my teens I actually was a 24/25 so I think that makes me harder on myself. I try to not be hard on myself but I'm pretty self-critical. I don't know if this plays into it, but I've maybe got a complex because other people tell me things like "oh you look like a model/dancer" and in the past I actually was looking to start modeling, not runway though since I'm too short and fat for them kek. Even though it's positive you start to hold yourself to stupid standards in fear of disproving them if you take it in the negative direction.

ymmv but I love the CeraVe cream in the tub. I know lanolin is criticised a lot but if you have really cracked skin, something with that in it could help. In cold climates that's what is recommended. Cetaphil is another good brand, Aveeno uses oatmeal if you are looking for that, but personally I like the heavy CeraVe creams the best. CeraVe has a line of stuff for intensely dry skin as well.
If it's red/burning you can use over the counter hydrocortizone to help handle the itching. Try to not use hot water on your skin. Avoid anything with drying ingredients and try to lock in the moisture. I personally also exfoliate with a spinning brush or washcloth and use AHAs/BHAs when my skin is not too irritated to remove dry flakes of skin. I also use a vitamin C/hydrolaunic acid serum to help lock in moisture before applying my moisturizer.

I liked it for the horror elements. The artist knew how to convey suspense well, which was a first for me (I’d never gotten so scared while reading a comic). I didn’t care about the ~ BL ~ aspect of it because to me, it just so happened to be a horror story featuring two men rather than a BL story, if that makes sense?

Psychological horror was always my jam, especially between interpersonal relationships, which is what fascinated me so much. Bum struggling between the reality of his situation and his mental illness/Stockholm syndrome was great.

I stopped reading because I was tired of the artist going on constant hiatuses. I get why she did, but it caused my interest to wane completely. I hear the ending was rushed and poor but I can’t speak on that.

I decided to look up what it is about (because you see so many people being obsessed with it) and just the first few lines of the character description on wiki are enough for me…
>Yoon Bum is the main character of Killing Stalking. Due to his parents dying when he was little, Bum was given to his grandmother and uncle with the latter severely abusing, raping and starving him, making Yoon Bum a life long abused victim due to also getting bullied in school, getting sexually abused and raped in military and Oh Sangwoo abusing him in several ways as well. Getting little to no affection from anyone, Bum frequently cut his wrists due to loneliness and gets attached to those who show him affection, making him a sensitive person.
That sounds as if somebody desperately tried to put everything bad that could happen to a person into one single character.

I don't care if you claim to haven't read it for the yaoi aspect of it (that actually makes it worse…), anybody who is "entertained" by or "interested" in this must be wrong in the head.
I also thinks it's evil to lure in fujoshi/kboo (pre)teens with the character design and then have them become obsessed with something that's basically just prolonged torture.
Absolutely disgusting. Judging any anon who posted about this in the fetish or whatever thread.

I used to read KS, and yeah obviously it is problematic as fuck - but the overall story doesn't present their relationship as romantic or ideal.

is gender dysphoria real? as in like can someone actually be born with a mental illness that causes them to perceive themselves as the other sex? i tried to be open minded and thought "okay, if gender dysphoria is actually innate i'd be respectful to that person to not cause them distress" but i really don't understand how it can be a thing. it's all about gender stereotypes which are social constructs.

i can see how someone can get gender dysphoria because of things happening in their life like a feminine gay guy who is always shamed for being feminine might think "i wish i was just born a girl", or a sexual assault victim might get disassociated to their body due to trauma and wish they were born as the other sex. but it don't mean that we should put these people on hormones or make them get surgery, we should help them with therapy and normalize gender non-conformity.
