everything azealia banks said about lizzo is true and it annoys me that the writer in the article is too braindead to fully address or ever understand it
i unironically wish we had more non-pc takes going around, but instead of the predictable boring racist "black bad white good orange man jesus" or "white bad black good orange man devil" shit, it was picking apart the more sophisticated nuances. like the archetypes entertainers and public figures play into, and even the ones we play into in our daily lives for the sake of convenience or outright success
it's not even just a race thing…society is very driven by certain archetypes and personas that aren't real and it'd be so cool to discuss

that's the dumbass part of this. the archetypes and personas are
real, they just don't apply to everyone. nothing applies to everyone though so…

I love this board so much. I have said this before and I know you hoes would hate me, but Idc, this is a special place unlike any other and visiting any male imageboard for literally even half a second is like stepping foot into a cum-covered leper colony, but like, one that truly and deeply deserves their leprosy. Like, colonies that actively encourage the breakdown of each others bodies and minds. I just visited one to quickly see something for the first time in the longest while. I'm just so grateful and I don't know how some of you girls even visit like, /tv/ or /v/ even
also how great is this gif of elijah wood? why elijah wood? it's genius

So accurate, I'm grateful for this place and the fact that I don't have to waste any time reading male opinions on anything anymore, particularly feminism. And the fact that most other posters feel the same and don't usually cape for them is a blessing.

Arabs are becoming increasingly irreligioushttps://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-48703377
it should be noted that Almost all of this change is coming from North Africa. Jordan/Palestine/Lebanon/Iraq only changed very marginally, and Yemen actually became more religious. But within North Africa there's been between ~5% (Algeria) and 15+% (Tunisia, Libya) decrease in religiosity, over just 5 years.
Other recent demographic findings from Arab world show- Arabs are becoming:>less interested in politics>more supportive of women in workforce and education>apathetic in views on women in politicshttps://www.arabbarometer.org/wp-content/uploads/AB_WomenFinal-version05122018.pdf

Because Brits and Americans are dumb and clearly don't care about anything other than themselves.
A few days ago I saw a segment about Chernobyl that said the disaster happened in my home country. Except my country is in southeast Europe and was never part of USSR, Stalin hated the shit out of us even. But we're Slavic so to them it's the same thing I guess. A "reputable" news channel couldn't be bothered to do a simple Google search.
I spent some time on /r/izlam today and the internet is having a huge effect on Muslim culture. It's getting mixed up with western streams of thought. Many are keeping their faith, but the idea that we should all kill each other over the hereafter seems to be a losing idea in the marketplace of ideas.
The tremendous dedication to memorizing volumes of religious text is falling by the wayside in favor of modern living and careers. But the identity of being a Muslim and the participation in the rituals is holding steady so far for the most part.
French people do that shit too. You'll have weird conversations with some Algerians and French people sometimes who go like this and it's embarrassing to watch:>hey, where are from?>I'm Kabyle and I have family in Algeria and in France>ok, so you're an Arab then!
An equivalent would be saying an African American guy is Anglo-Saxon because American culture and history is derived from Great Britain.
>A "reputable" news channel couldn't be bothered to do a simple Google search.
It must have been so embarrassing to watch. But from the things I see in the news sometimes I can't say I'm surprised they barely research anything.>>425564
Because of the culture, not because of ethnicity, and according to some relatives it's a relatively recent phenomenon linked with colonisation independence and political/religion shit with the middle east. And then again it depends on specific regions.

i looked so much better with long hair why did i cut it
this honestly gives me hope. the children of muslim families tend to be more open minded than their parents, internet helps you see the bigger world around your eco chamber and research about the inconsistencies of islam. having the chance to do some research and meet other ex-muslims helped me at least.
so many turkish high schoolers i've talked with are irreligious or questioning. the more the government pushes hard to enforce islamic rules, the more people see its faultiness and are put off from it.
Speaking as a French of Turkish ancestry, most people here think Turks are some variation of Arabs, even when you try telling them that the language is completely unrelated and actually even closer to Mongol than to Arabic. As a corollary, they end up thinking Turks and North Africans are somehow culturally and ethnically close.
So good luck making them understand that North Africans are not originally Arabs.
The most annoying thing IMO is that it's often willful ignorance on their part. Of course I don't expect French people to know everything about every ethnic group, but even when you try and explain the differences many just prefer to hang on to their clichés and narrow worldview where every ME/NA person is an Arab that eats couscous tajine and kebab.
Sage for samefagging but an other pet peeve of mine is people who think Turkey is a desert and are shocked to learn it rains or snows there. Ugh.
Because again Turks = Arabs = Desert and sand dunes.
I'm sure we talked about that a little in another thread, I remember you or maybe another French and Turkish anon saying the same thing earlier. I find this so frustrating because you would think France would maybe know a little about the countries they invaded and colonized for decades but they don't even make that effort. The worst are the ones who brag about their grand-parents being pieds-noirs and they say the most inaccurate or offensive shit about Maghribes as a whole while also saying that it's ok, they know what they're talking about because it's kind of like they're Algerians too. The few Arabs from the Middle East I've talked to irl or online don't even see North Africans as part of their community anyway, let alone Turks.
>even when you try telling them that the language is completely unrelated
Yeah it doesn't sound very similar and it's not even remotely written the same way. People probably think most Turks and North Africans are Muslims and we kind of look like each other so we're all the same people.

He looks like Taemin/Jimin.
I think my dog is going to pass on soon. She's 15 years old now. She gets pretty lethargic when the weather is gloomy, so I didn't think too much of it last week when we had rain everyday because she was still eating and coming up to my family for some snuggles. But the weather's cleared up and she hasn't gotten any pep back into her step like usual (if you met her, you'd think she was young. She runs and acts like a pup in her prime all the time).
Yesterday her back legs were wobbling around pretty bad. She's been kinda wobbly and clumsy for a while now, but it's never bothered her. Sometimes I thought it was because she was running so fast that she just keeps tripping over herself. Yesterday, it looked difficult for her to walk. I told my dad we should bring her to the vet but he brushed it off that she's just old. I get that she's old… isn't that more reason to bring her? Anyway, she finished all of her food didn't want to go out for a walk, which is really uncharacteristic.
This morning she didn't eat, hasn't really been walking around too much, and also didn't want to go walk again. She's been walking normally again, but just really… really slow.
I've been looking at a specific pet cemetery that's about an hour's drive away from my home. From the photos, it looks like a beautiful place. I like that the land won't ever be used for anything else, so I can rest easy that my pup will always be there. I wanted to have her cremated and kept there because my parents are pretty nonchalant about things in the house (they shoved awards I got in high school and a vase from my host mother in Japan in the back of the TV cabinets, to be covered by other random shit they bought), so I want to make sure her remains are kept somewhere safe, where I can come back and visit her no matter where I'll move to in the world.
Even though I wanted to have her cremated (the cemetery has a specially priced package that includes the cremation, urn, internment fee, granite marker, and maintenance fee for $1000), my father wants her buried whole (the prices for a burial start at under $2000). I mean… I don't want price to play a role because my dog is my everything, but I also have student loans to pay and my dad is absolutely shit at handling money (my mother keeps everything in line and paid, but there undoubtedly a mountain of debt there because of his shit spending). I sort of want to be like "it's my money, I'm paying for this, I want her cremated" but my dad was upset that my grandmother was cremated and he had no say in it (he wanted her buried) so I feel like the least I can do is just have our dog buried.
I feel like it's so stupid forking over so much money for just a dog, but I grew up with her and she's my sunshine. I feel like a part of me is dying. Who know, when I go home she might just go back to her annoying, yappy self, but I know her time is coming and I want to prepare for it.
Also I'm on my period so I'm extra emotional and on the verge of crying every few minutes about this. Fuck.
Me too, I love everyone here and I love that we can all talk about pretty much anything.>>425668
I can think of fandoms on lj and maybe tumblr in the early 2010s (it turned to shit in 2013 imo) when it comes to female spaces online. But they don't really exist anymore and I miss the atmosphere there so much sometimes.
She does have arthritis actually! It was pretty bad maybe two years ago, she would sit and cry loudly from being in pain. He brought her to the vet back then to get weekly shots and everything settled down and she seems better now (no more sitting around in one spot and crying). I would bring her myself but the vet we like to take her too is difficult to get to without a car, and only my dad has a license (I got my permit but haven't started lessons yet).
It's weird with my parents and dog. I don't doubt that they love her as much as I do, but I don't think they really want to bother with her. I screamed my head off about wanting a dog when I was a kid, and we finally got her when I was 8. She's always been "my" dog, even though I was wildly unprepared for what training and taking care of a dog was going to be like. They gave me breed specific books, but as an 8 year old with really terrible reading comprehension, I don't know what the fuck to do lol. Not to mention my dog's breed is notoriously stubborn. So in the end, we never got her to learn much more than sit. The internet wasn't the great and vast resource for dog training as it is now (not that it would've helped because… I was 8 and my parents didn't really care).
My dad worked away from home when I was young and took the dog with him, taking care of her for a large chunk of her life, so they were really close and she loved him more than anyone else in the house. Then when he changed jobs and lived at home again, my mum mostly took care of her. Am I a shit owner? Probably. I chalk it up to "I was just a kid and my parents would've never let me walk the dog outside in the morning by myself as a small child," but now as an adult who can finally take care of herself and earn a bunch of disposable income, I finally feel like I'm there for my dog, and now she's the closest with me. We both wake up early in the morning before anyone else, and I try to make it a point to cuddle her as much as I possibly can. I'm now the one who feeds, walks, and bathes her. It's definitely too little too late, but I'm trying to make up for all the years I couldn't be her main caretaker as much as I can.
My parents definitely hate vet bills and think they're ridiculous for what it is most of the time (paying hundreds to just have someone touch my dog a little and then be like "yeah shes fine just old"), but she's my whole world. They conveniently see her as just a dog when it comes to times like these, but any other time they're babying her and give me shit when I try to scold them for babying her too much (she had a fucking AWFUL habit of barking a lot because she knew it would get her treats, and my parents would constantly cave and give her too many).
sage for stupid dog rambling lol. Worst comes to worst I might uber/lyft to the vet, but she also gets car sick so I'm worried about her puking in a strangers car.
again. On top of hassling my dad to take my dog to the vet, I called the cemetery anyway so I could get a rough estimate on the cost so I could look into a payment plan or some sort.
The burial would cost $2,100, and it includes a basic marker and a plywood casket. A nicer one (I randomly picked cherry wood off the top of my head) is around $750 alone. The annual maintenance fee to guarantee that my dog's plot of land would not be disturbed/dug up/maintained is $80, and the perpetual, one-lump sum one is $2,600. I fucking hate this, I just want to get her cremated like I originally wanted. That alone would've just been roughly $1k plus the $2.6k perpetual maintenance fee. Fuck. I have to ask my dad if we can drive up there one week because to set up the payment plan we have to meet them in person and pick out a grave plot and whatever. Ugh. Why can't pets just live forever?
Sometimes I wish men were sexualized in the same way women were. It always seems like women always have to try be "sexy" and accommodating for men. It's normal for them to send nudes, indulge in all their partner's fetishes, dress up in lingerie, etc. I know a lot of women like this and it makes them feel attractive but it seems so boring for me. I'd rather the guy I like go out of his way to be attractive and "sexy" for me. To send me teasing full-body pictures of him without pestering me for them (not dick pics, that doesn't even count), for him to actively want to know what I like so he can please me better, just in general enjoying being as attractive as possible for me. I feel like a lot of men don't think about this at all and it's kind of disappointing.
I guess really what I'm saying is, I like submissive men? But a lot of them make everything about pleasing and pandering to them in the same way dominant men do. Like, they expect dominant women to wear sexy leather outfits, act like a bitch, do everything they want without reciprocation, etc. I'm so confused.

Dear youtube, PLEASE stop recommending me these lazy reddit adbux videos, just because I clicked them ONCE (1) out of curiosity.
My eczema was so fucking god awful for the past 2 weeks or so. Like, I haven't had it be this fucking bad since high school. The topical steroids I usually use from my doctor weren't doing fucking shit for me, so I bought the Aveeno eczema therapy balm and it sort of alleviated the itchiness and pain.
Suddenly, like two days ago, shit just went away. It's no longer itchy, honestly it feels like brand new, not eczema ridden skin. It was barely a gradual transition- it was there one day, mostly gone the next. One spot is still a little rough, but not itchy or red or bothering me. I did nothing special outside of furiously constantly applying the eczema balm (sometimes with the topical steroid but I kept that to a minimum). Why the fuck is skin like this lol. Well, at least that shit is fucking gone, but fuck I hope it doesn't come back.
I feel this
I still like to keyboard mash
I really don't like it if they do it generally because then it's just narcissism, but only if they go out of their way to do it for me. Like a guy I'm in a relationship with specifically acting sexy in the way I like because he wants to please me. I guess I didn't explain it well. In my eyes that's somewhat submissive.>>425849>>425868

Is it bad that I relate to this
Like I seriously believe a global collapse is imminent and theirs nothing we can do now to stop it
I want to get a gun and learn some prepper skills
I'm not romanticizing living in the woods,I know it will be horrible and miserable but the world environmentally has already reached the point of collapse and its only getting worse
here's just one example
"there are 100 crop species that provide 90% of food around the world and 71 of these are pollinated by bees. In Europe alone, 84% of the 264 crop species and 4,000 plant varieties exist thanks to pollination by bees." - Food and Agriculture Organization
Bees have been steadily disappearing for about a decade.
Slight temperature changes which are expected to occur within 20 years will start killing animal species, especially sea creatures.
So basically the lack of bees means no agriculture to eat, and the temperature changes means no more animals to eat.
The world's population is unsustainable with the decline in food
The only thing we can do now is prepare

This is a myth that has to be disproven
The majority of suicides in the US are done by middle age working class men who live in rural communities,the reasons for these suicides is due to lack of proper access to proper mental health resources and the fact that their bodies are completely broken due to the manual labor and they have no heath insurance so they would rather kill themselves then deal with the pain
Africa and Asia have incredibly high suicide rates mainly done by Young men cause of the horrible conditions they live so they too would rather kill themselves then deal with the pain
>>426168>There is a reason why suicide rates are much lower in places like India or Africa
i mean, something tells me suicide cases aren't documented in those places because of a mixture of circumstances. it's mostly to do with poor mental health awareness, stigma and lack of resources
as someone who's seen the worst of the worst - i don't think there is some sense of camaraderie and pure friendship in these places, in spite of what tourists think lmfao
everyone in this world is suffering. everywhere is horrible. but
first worlders actually have the resources and high living standards to address the inner problems while everyone else is worrying about the outer problems like food and disease
sorry to say, but these "doomers" don't even realize that the fact that they even have the opportunity to sit and contemplate their navels means they don't actually have shit to worry about.
when you're in the ass end of the ghetto, you literally just don't have the time or social support to talk about how you were molested by your cousin and now you have issues being close to any males and break into hives when another man so much as touches your shoulder, or about how your grandmother had schizophrenia but everyone said she just had "demons" and deserted her, and now you're starting to worry because you're seeing shadow people and hearing voices, or how you see absolutely no point to living anymore, or how your mother was physically and psychologically abusive
so you cope by telling yourself women are just "hoes" to exploit and discard and that feelings are for simps. you have no time to listen to the smiths and LARP as a military man on /k/ while smoking cigarettes in a comfy bedroom while mommy makes you tendies and you're fantasizing about living in a log cabin in the middle of iceland when the world ends. no time to argue on the internet about the environment and pretend you're ready for an apocalypse.
you can only have a little cry about your issues at night when no one is around. then you get back to slinging drugs and gangbanging the moment you wake up until you inevitably get arrested and spend your life in jail or shot by other ghetto people (or cops), and that's your life.

I've wanted a Switch for so fucking long, I've been following it back when it was still the Nintendo NX, but I always held off on getting one since I always had some kind of excuse, like bills to pay or there not being enough good games to play, but the whole time I was secretly lusting after one and so jealous watching everyone play with theirs. Now finally I've caved and decided it's high time I buy one, especially with the new Animal Crossing on the horizon (no pun intended lol), and I couldn't be more excited. I'm getting it on my birthday which is in two weeks as a nice little gift to treat myself and ugh I couldn't be happier. Hope all you ladies can also treat yourselves in July, I'll lend you my birthday as an excuse lol
Anon, that's genuinely an upsetting thing to go through and I don't think anyone would criticise you for crying. I don't think I've ever met anyone who didn't shed a few tears while talking about their dog being sick or having to go to the vet while at work. Even if she doesn't enjoy walks or treats, I can guarantee she loves and appreciates your company.
Fuck, now you have me crying about my last dog.
Thank you anons, it means a lot to me. I just need a place to scream out my dumbass thoughts but I'll try to keep my crying on here to a minimum.
I know there will always be people (whether on this board or in real life) who will give me shit that she's just a dog. Yes, she's a dog, but she's my whole world. I spent so much of my life with her but feel like only recently since I came home from college that we really got to bond as I became her main caretaker.
The worst bit is that her new food JUST arrived today. I'm going to try handfeeding her a little bit of it and giving her some more of her favorite treats. Not even mad that I spent money on it, just sad because I thought it might improve the quality of her life to have it and then shit happened.
I'm trying to prepare all of the aftercare stuff, but the burial costs are going to eat up more than half of my savings. I know she couldn't care less about what or where she's buried in, but I want her to have a grave spot that I can visit and bring food offerings to. I'm hoping it'll make the grieving process a bit easier, but I'm also having dumb upset thoughts about her little puppy ghost waking up in some unknown graveyard, so far away from home (it's so dumb, I know). I knew that this would be inevitable, I've been crying thinking of her passing since day she came home to us, but fuck. The pain and acceptance of it never got any easier.
I'm sorry about your dog anon. What were they like? Please tell me more about them.

anon it's so much healthier holding off from buying these fucking expensive consoles happy 4 u, ZELDA IS MIND BLOWING
You're such a good owner and you're so thoughtful. I was holding back tears for a month. I didn't even know it was time, it was the vet who suggested letting him go and I trust her because she has a dog of her own. I found distracting myself worked really well so I always made sure that I was always busy and I was never alone. You're not weird for thinking any of these things, I felt the exact same way.
My dog was a little nasty terrier with a heart of gold. He loved going for walks in the forest and sleeping next to the window so he could guard the house. He was like the definition of a grumpy old man, he'd get into arguments with my dad and it was so cute. Kids especially loved him and he'd just sit there politely while they pulled his ears and tail. A few months before he passed away we fostered another dog and they got on so well, they slept in the same bed. After he passed away, this new dog helped me so much. Every time I went to cry (and I was howling), he'd look at me with his little confused face and it helped me realise that this new dog needed me and I had to be strong for him. After that, there was no way I was going to hand him back so we adopted him.

Thank you so much anon. Your reassurance means so much to me. I think I’m far from the best owner, but I’m trying not to dwell on the past and just focus on giving her the best quality of life from here on out.
Your pup sounds so cute! I’m sure he’s living his best grandpa life up there in doggy heaven. Unlimited food and treats, all the bellyrubs in the world, and no pain. I don’t really believe in the afterlife, but I hope that there’s one for dogs. I’m so happy to hear that you opened your home as a forever home to your other dog! It’ll probably be a long, long while before I get another dog (grieving and also dealing with career stuff) but I hope one day I can just buy a farm, retire on it, and just open my home to as many shelter dogs as I can afford to take care of.

Nothing wrong with looking like the resident lesbians at your small town JCPenneys, but don't you dare try to LARP as ultra virile machomen when you look like this.

so happy for you anon! I bought a switch sometime last year but I've barely played it… I'm super excited to use it again when animal crossing comes out!
I'm honestly god fucking awful at games and I bought my switch to play BOTW cause I had a lot of fun playing on my friend's switch but… all I would do is climb the mountains lol. I fucking suck at combat, I unlocked a tower by painstakingly spending like 20 minutes slowly climbing up the side of a mountain and avoiding all monsters.
Huh, I never really realized how awkward I am with cats until I read this post. I don't dislike them, I've just never owned any of my own and have no idea how to react to them. On the other hand, I do have a dog and I guess just being so used to being around a dog all the time, I do pretty alright when I meet new ones.
I know cats have their boundaries and stuff but I have no gauge for it so I always just stay away. I'll see my cousin roughhouse with her cat a little, pick him up randomly, or hold him down to clip his nails and he just takes it… It baffles me because I'm so scared of them biting or scratching because I've gone too far lol.
Cats relax when you slowly blink and act like youre sleepy. That's how they signal they're calm and not threatening so they can read that off your face too.
When you meet a cat or dog, hold out a fist, instead of having fingers extended. Let them go in for a sniff and if they do then you can try to be more involved. If they're not even sniffing they prob don't want anything to do with you.
After a sniff you can usually attempt to pet a cat but if they're recoiling basically you just chuckle and back off. The owner would understand, it's a cat afterall. Sometimes cats take a while to warm up as well so after the first sniff introduction just let them determine the pace by approaching you.

I've never played Yakuza but wow I should
This is weird but one of my professors in college had a beard for a long time, then suddenly shaved it. A friend and I snuck into one of his intro classes (we were pretty close with him and he didn't give a shit since we weren't disruptive) and it was the first time I saw him without a beard. It freaked me the fuck out, I kept thinking "no, no way that's our professor" but then he spoke and it fucked with my brain so much because it was his voice coming out of a face that didn't look like his.
Eventually I did get used to it and we joked with him about how weird he looks without his beard lol.
God I'd love to foster dogs but I'm such a weenie I would definitely foster fail every single time lol.
Last night it took my dog a while before she came out from under the bed to snuggle with me. I figured then would be the best time to talk to her and tell her how much she means to me. I told her about the dog we had before her (for only two days, the dog bit me and my dad returned her to the shelter) and why I picked her. Honestly I sort of forgot about it until I was telling her. If you'll indulge me anon, I'm going to repeat part of it here too.
We got her from a pet store (adopting from a shelter was too difficult, we kept getting passed over and my dad was fed up with my child self screaming about wanting a dog lol) and I remember when I stuck my hand into that pen of puppies, she was the first one to come to me. My dad brought me to that store because I had wanted a dog with white fur so, SO bad, and he brought me there to see her. There were other pups in there too, and they pushed her out of the way, and she was so scared and kept running away to the other side of the pen. Maybe if she didn't have white fur I might not have chosen her, but I'm so happy that I did. She was sort of ugly when we got her lol I remember thinking that. 15 years later after a lot of love and picky diets, she's the most beautiful, fluffy pup. There are so many things we could have done better, and so many things I regret, but she gave us 15 long years despite it all. Even when I was cranky and annoyed at her in the morning when she would wake us all up at an ungodly hour (admittedly, I would get so frustrated that I would yell at her to shut up), she would still love me and cuddle with me everyday. Her breed is notoriously stubborn and independent, absolutely not the best choice for first time dog owners, but damn. She made her own little den under my parents bed, house trained herself, and never had separation anxiety. She might not be the friendliest or the most well trained, but damn she's the best dog I could've ever asked for.

Has anyone else been following the Mackenzie Lueck missing persons case? It's so weird. Why would she take a Lyft to a public park in the middle of the night after leaving the airport?
She was a sugar baby and apparently would meet up with older men off of Tinder and SA. Would not be surprised if she got murdered by one of them.
Idk what thread to post this in lol sorry
revive your old neopets account and feed them again
i got into it again a few months back and it's fun
you also find more stuff to do when you're not a dumb child anymore, and the community in the forums is ….alright enough
you can also enter the art contests even if you suck at drawing, among the winners there's usually at least one really ugly "won via pity-votes" pic

Yeah, the situation itself just seems weird though. Why wouldn't she go home first and change/drop her luggage off? She left the airport at like 2 am so it must have been important for her to not go home and go to bed.
To me, something about her looks… off. In her pictures she looks like there might be something off mentally. I don't know exactly what it is though.
File: 1561651145621.jpg (51.08 KB, 634x746, 15296182-7185285-image-m-33_15…)
Yeah, you can tell in a lot of her pictures her hair looks greasy and hasn't been washed which made me think she doesn't have it all together… she just looks dead behind the eyes. If you look at her instagram too you can tell she's a bit off, overshares sometimes. Would explain her lack of foresight in meeting up with someone in the middle of the night with her luggage and everything with her if she's off mentally in some way.
Unfortunately she'll probably be found in a shallow grave in the next couple of days. The police were digging at a house near the park. I feel bad for her family that this part of her life is being made public for everyone to see.
You can still have days like that, anon. You've just gotten too old for that shit.
Join some Discord servers full of people from horrific fandoms and just watch the sparks fly. The only issue is you'll probably hate it when you're not laughing.
go to theoldnet.com, click on the Yahoo section, and go wild. The "Internet rabbit hole thread" in /ot/ here also kept me busy before (especially blowfly girl wtf)
I also still play Neopets, there are old plots you can still do and guides online. The Altador Cup is going on right now too.
Go on Disboard and join some random servers, look at their old chats, find original cringe. Literally no obligation to stay and talk in any of them either.
aaand buzzfeed quizzes lol. or go to Quotev, it's the modern-day Quizilla. gl
Have fun anon! The internet is your oyster.
I haven't cosplayed/made a costume in a while, but as long as you can put your mind to it, you can do anything! I can't sew for shit but I still manage to make some (pretty decent, imo) costumes! I've never learned how to properly sew, even after a decade I always approach all new projects with a "eh, I'll just wing it" mentality and 99% of the time things turn out looking good.
Remember to clean up your work at the end of every night, makes your life so much fucking easier than tiptoeing around random pins on the floor to get into bed. Good luck!
good luck! obviously you can find just about anything online but if youre looking for a singular sort of reference material, i recommend how to start sewing and how patterns work by assembil books.>>427006
this too omg. i have miscut nice fabric more times than i would like to admit..
I just knew I would be accused of being a man. No, I am not. It's just that doing ASMR should be a hobby and I can understand young women using their looks to get patreon bux but at a certain age you should be financially independent and not make lewd roleplays online. I just hope that I don't end up like them.
I also think old dudes doing it are pathetic but there's less of them so not really noticeable.
Sometimes when I read about really sad stories about shitty people, I can't help but feel bad.
I read a story recently about an incel shooting up a yoga studio. I was like "fuck that guy" while reading the whole thing, how could he do something do terrible? But then there was a line about how his bank account was dwindling to zero, and he was eating canned beans. Instead of thinking "yeah, he deserves it, he deserves to suffer" I just… felt so bad. And now I just read a story on HONY about an abusive drug addict father who is now in a rehab center, not remembering what he did and just sitting there in raggedy clothes and I also felt bad.
Like, my stupid head just inserts my own dad in (he is not an incel nor is he an abusive drug addict) and I suddenly get so sad. Of course I know these survivors don't have to ever forgive these men, I sure as hell wouldn't, but when I read about such pitiful situations, I just get so damn sad for them. Fuck. I wish my brain would stop this lol.
What are you even talking about? You said "doing ASMR" not "doing ASMR for money" so don't start backpedaling.
Stop getting mad that women dare exist while over 30.
Me too anon omg. I think I might have tennis elbow or a vitamin deficiency.>>426936
Seconding this. Neopets is so cute and wholesome, and you never run out of stuff to do. Most of the people who play it now are adult women because of how old the game is.
Just don't use the Newbies board, it's full of weirdos.
yeah, i guess. I'm not particularly sad about it. I'm not a casual hookup person and nearly every woman i know who is in a relationship with a man is treated badly by her partner. I don't need that extra stress in my life.>>427053

how do you think he'd react if you told him? if you can somehow ease him into conversation about it, that'd be good. or if not, just flat out say 'i want to do this shit to you with no strings attached'. of course that might affect your friendship if it doesn't work out, but if it does…
File: 1561704877091.png (8.84 KB, 822x67, normal.PNG)
This is pretty much my reaction- disappointed, slightly annoyed, but not angry. I don't mind telling people a little bit about the artist they're wearing. I was able to get my friend into Rush that way, actually.
Wearing parents' band tees for sentimental value is actually quite common. In my book, people totally get a pass for that regardless of how much they know about the band.
She's playing life on easy mode, anon. You get a higher score for completing it on hard mode.

I feel this so much. Also people just shitting on positivity, or other people who just want to be kind to others. Or people who just want more from life and challenge themselves to get it.

It makes no difference to me whether they are a fan or not, but its really weird to me to use your hard-earned money to buy a Superman shirt if you dont like him. Why not buy something you do like, and have a piece of clothing you can love? Its a really confusing thought process.
Like that other anon said tho if it was a family members' shirt or sweater then thats absolutely fine. But I cant imagine my frugal ass buying a $15-$20 graphic t-shirt of something I dont care about when theres probably a shirt of something I do like one shelf over.

I feel like it's part of a larger "Let's placate the summerfriends bitching about there being too many radfems on lolcow" agenda. That thread really was some Encyclopedia Dramatica, retro-style milk.
I'm just glad they haven't locked the fakeboi thread. I have a strong feeling it'd be shut down if it had just been created today.
Maybe we can start a new thread for Devolv here in /ot/. It'd be like when there was a Nemu thread here originally, or the glamfur thread we have. I'll volunteer if anons are up for that idea.

Since the bus schedule has been changed last year, I need to run for a short while to make it on time since it arrives a bit earlier than before and I always feel like an idiot because I do it everyday and I need to do it at the same street section.

Wouldn't surprise me if there is somebody who lives in one of the many house, watching me the same way. https://youtu.be/hfJD2kCiCK8
I don’t expect them to love me right away lol, I’m more at a loss for what to do because I want to interact but can’t exactly smalltalk with an animal.
It’s like, I have a friend with two dogs, one of which will be all over you and started crying when she got shut behind a baby gate so she wouldn’t follow us upstairs, while the other dog doesn’t really give a shit about anything but he let me pat his head.

I was the actual OP of the /ot/ one. I probably should've asked permission properly instead of getting overexcited and remaking the thread after realizing I wasn't the only one disappointed about the lock.
Last resort if you guys really want a thread for this (I want one too): 8ch's /bannedcows/.
The place is a graveyard, but at least it won't be locked there or gather ire (unless the person(s) who got pissed about it decide to follow and try to shit up the thread out of pure spite). Yay or nay?
It's because it's fucking weird. Everyone knows of kawaii nazis, we've seen them over and over, it's boring now. But it's the first time any of us sees fetishisation of euneuchs.
> this wild attempt at "no u!!"
I don't care about euneuchs personally, I'm more interested in the fact they're sisters and their self-hating as women.
it's not about moralfagging, it's about how weird those girls are and the drawings hinting at what's wrong with them.
IDGAF about eunuchs or eunuch fetishes or historically accurate information but I find the artists really interesting.>>427951
I for one don't want the art salt thread to get clogged and don't feel like the most interesting angle to take is the GC one, who cares whether you should shit on her misogyny, I just want to have a laugh at them.
This isn't your personal website, christ. Lots of anons want this, you don't. Big deal.
In fact, this kind of sperging absolutely reeks of summerfags or crossboarders who don't realize you can actually hide a thread, or that there are different cows and flakes on all of LC.
. It's not artist salt, and it'd just be clogging it up.
No one's being a conspiracyfag, it's just upsetting and questionable to several actual farmers that an active thread would be locked on what appears to be a purely subjective basis.
Reminds me of when I was a semi-rebellious teenager and me and my friends swiped a wine bottle from my mom and stepdad's wine cellar, thinking no one would notice. We drank the wine straight from the bottle while spitting out cork pieces because we couldn't open it properly. Well, turns out the bottle we took was worth like 150€-200€. I thought it was pretty funny (I still do), but my mom and stepdad weren't amused, lmao.
I honestly don't understand why someone would buy really expensive wine, like anything over 100€. The one we had didn't even taste that good or different from cheaper wines, and I think it's been proven that even experts can't often tell them apart. Is it just flexing or what?
I think it's a combo of investing, kind of like with jewelry, and flexing. Total conspicuous consumption. There was a taste test where they preferred this cheap Aldi wine or said it was equally as good, lol. I've had $3-$6 wine and it was pretty good, but if I'm gifting I try to give $15-$30 because I don't want to look cheap. I'm from a very wine-rich area so good, cheap wine is very common, there's plenty of expensive wine too but I think even that is less pricy than elsewhere.
Article related: http://fortune.com/2017/05/30/best-rose-wine-challenge-aldi/
apparently an $8 Aldi wine placed in an international award ceremony after blind tastings.
It tasted good but I honestly couldnt say the difference between this bottle and a 15€ bottle.
Who in their right mind spends so much on wine? And then just gives it away to their kid who wont even drink it?

Alright, which 10 year old from DeviantArt drew this shit? Netflix anime budget running dangerously low.
Plus they often run on a shoestring budget and not even a good chunk of it would go to the animators.
Basically you get what you paid for.
I think anime's biggest issue isn't even the broken anatomy, it's the stiffness. The animation rarely has personality and the chracters tend to stand still throughout conversations, with some facial changes that don't feel animated but rather like a 2-frame gif.
Western animation has plot problems but at least it's usually animated beautifully, even the older stuff. To me, the only thing that sets animated films/shows apart from live action is that lively animation element. If it's stiff and unmoving, I'd rather watch a real actor or read a book or something.
What is the point.
I haven't been following the Vic drama since that thread and would like a new one too.>judge couldn't even tell his lawyer was a lawyer at first

i'm not a fan of her work but i do like a song or two. i think what makes her """"stand out"""" (i'm being very generous here) is that she doesn't really project an image of traditional femininity? she wears all those baggy, "urban" skater-type outfits, which
a) fits right in with the "not-like-other-girls" alt-tween crowd that wants so desperately to stand out and be "different", so dressing in a non-traditional/non-girly way is good means to achieve that, and b) it isn't new by any stretch but tweens think anything they're into is new and they invented it so it works.
imho so many female singers and artists these days have the same copycat girly image, it makes them hard to tell apart from each other bc their music is all the same too. and while i don't deny that billie's shtick is far from new + there's probably shady business going down behind the scenes for her to rise to fame so quickly, i think that might be a contributor in why she's recognized. again, i'm not saying it's original, that she's cracked some millenary code or that it's the sole reason for her shady rise to fame.

They have to be terrible people, full stop. I know you say she's going for the cynical thing, but there's no way a kid gets into mainstream music so young and doesn't get fucked up real fast. Also, her family reminds me of straight up Irish travellers/gypsies so I feel like that has probably colored the way I perceive her.

I wasn't sure if I should post this in the vent thread, the unhealthy obsessions with people thread, or the dumbass shit thread since it's undoubtedly all three, but dumbass shit prevailed.
I hate this fuck. He's Patrick Rothfuss and he's a sperg even by fantasy author standards. He's a massive lolcow in his own right and legions of neckbeards lick his talentless taint. His books suck and there are garden slugs with better work-ethics than he's got. Furthermore, he's the physical embodiment of the archetypal creepy male 'feminist'.
I've compiled a dossier of reasons he can eat my ass but I'll keep the autism to a minimum. Thank you for your time.
I love you, anon.
Would love to read more of your anti-Rothfuss vents. Fucking hate this creep and his shitty, Gary Stu novels that are considered masterpieces by scrots.
Not looking forward to The Name of the Wind tv series blowing up and being Game of Thrones 2.0 (in terms of popularity).
Th-thank you, anon… the circle jerk around this chode had me thinking I was the only one. I was not kidding about the dossier, I honestly could go on but I have no idea how many farmers know who he is/care.>>429152
When his popularity was blowing up people were fond of saying "he's the next gurm!!", to which I say, sure, in the way that he is also a wheezingly obese pervert who is allergic to doing his own fucking job and can't stop patting himself on the micropenis for being a #feminist. >>429155
Where to begin, honestly.
His books are so male-gazey and sexist. The depictions of women in them are horrendous. You have Denna, the manic pixie dream girl that eludes Kvothe. He’s super obsessed with her but acts like a fedora wielding gentleman and keeps his distance because he doesn’t want to be seen like the other sex-craved men she blatantly uses as a gold-digger. Even though in the narrative the entire plot is seeking Denna out so he can be close to her and eventually become romantic (Kvothe is always scheming to be near her and be with her).
Then that weird girl that lives underground. Auri I think her name was? She’s the epitome of a mystical loli. Thin, tiny, uwu Hawaii and has magical hair that floats around her head like a halo. Also childlike and innocent. Apparently she snapped mentally from the university that made her regressed despite being 16-18 years old?
And there is a literal sex goddess in the book named Felurian. She teaches virginal kvothe how to have sex. There’s a huge chunk of a book depicting her sex scenes with Kvothe. Again, she acts like a literal child in a woman’s body with big tits, thin limbs and giant baby eyes. She’s infantilized to depict a mystical ethereal being—kinda similar to Auri.
Oh, and a made up culture in the book are literally a rip off of samurais except the women are strong powerful independent women because they like to have a lot of sex with no strings attached and with multiple partners.
Devi is also supposed to be a strong smart female character yet Kvothe always manages to outsmart her in a battle of wits because he’s a Gary Stu. She’s in her mid twenties but is described as a childlike looking women with blond curly hair and short. She flirts with Kvothe and even offers to have sex with him multiple times.
There’s also another side character Kvothe saves from the fire and she’s the hottest girl on campus. She clings herself onto Kvothe shamelessly lol. Everyone just wants Kvothe but to me, he seemed so arrogant and I can’t see why a real woman would want to be with him.
To;dr: Why are all the women beautiful, childish, ethereal, young and willing to sleep with Kvothe (main character?) Thats super sexist. Also everyone is like white in the book, especially all the love interests Kvothe has who are all described as having pale-as-the-moon-like skin. I thought I’d like these books as I love fantasy but they’re kinda bad and super cringe-y with zero plot besides Kvothe getting some lady action and studying at school. Spoiler alert: he never truly learns the name of the wind lmao

I’m a huge fantasy fan and apparently he’s this generations Tolkein with his subversive plots and expectations. Literally all the books are about is how Kvothe becomes a fabricated legend and myth, when in reality he’s not a hero… he’s just an ordinary guy.
He is absolutely worshipped by fantasy readers, has sold millions of copies of his shit-tier wish fulfillment novels, and regularly tops lists of greatest fantasy novels/authors of this century/ever. His books are optioned for movies, a tv show, and a video game amongst other projects. Tv show is in production for Showtime (I think) and Lin-Manuel Miranda is producing. All of this makes me want to piss myself.>>429183

Try reading Throne of Glass series. It’s so bad and laughable. I have no idea why it’s so popular despite the main character being a blatant Mary Sue. Spoilers: she’s a top assassin by the age of 16, the lost princess to a royal family, and an endangered elf species. She’s also the daughter of a goddess and may even be a goddess herself. >>429242
I could’ve sworn everyone in the books were white. I’ve read this a year ago so my memory is a bit rusty. Pretty sure the author pulled a JK Rowling and made the sword people POC when in the books they are described as Slavic looking.
Spoilers: kvothe doesn’t fully learn the name of the wind in the second book. He throws a tantrum and calls it powerfully in front of Felurian but he never masters it and calls it with his will ever again. Imo he never truly learns it because he still can’t call it at will.
More spoilers: Pic related - Felurian, a goddess of sex and beauty depicted in an immortal 20 year old woman’s body but has the mind of a child, basically seduces and rapes Kvothe, a 16 year old boy.

Lol, it sounds so much like the character Rhapsody from the Symphony of Ages at first I thought it was what you were talking about (I've only read the first book and it was a while ago so I don't remember it well). She's a super-gorgeous 19 year-old or so prostitute with a super-magical singing talent that makes her extra strong except for when she needs to be saved by a guy, and also happens to be half-elf (well, half-Liringlas). At one point during the first book she walks into a magical fire and ends up being even more beautiful and better at just everything.
From livejournal:https://canon-sues.livejournal.com/135109.html>Annoying Special Abilities: As a Singer, Namer, of the highest power level, the skies the limit with this one. Her powers of a Singer aren't exactly defined, instead we get a vague definition of 'being able to change the world and nature of things with music and magic.' Which pretty much allows her to do any damn thing she wants, when the plot calls for it. Being a Singer also means that she is the most talented musician and has the most beautiful voice. She's also an expert swords-woman and pretty handy with a knife. Having a musician that uses a sword, or a fighter who can sing, does not bother me. What bothers me is that Rhapsody has everything, she is so fantastic at everything she does.>Rhapsody can also claim to be an amazing cook and has awesome healing skills. Like I said, everything she does is pure gold.>She is also completely and annoyingly unaware of how beautiful she is and keeps insisting that she is plain. It's worst then Bella claiming to be plain with an entire high school after her, Rhapsody has half the world lusting for her hot bod, including dragons calling her 'pretty' constantly, and still she doesn't get it. It must be a superpower.

I actually just started reading Throne of Glass because it's been shoved down my throat everywhere I turn and I cannot get over how unlikeable and Mary Sue the main character is. I'm not even shocked by the spoilers because halfway through the first book I can see it going that way. Not to mention the super contrived love triangle where both dudes fell in love on sight and every single chapter from their perspective is just jerking off to how hot Celaena is. It sucks because I like the premise of cool assassin chick but the rest ruins it. So many fantasy series are just jerk off self-inserts and I hate it.
If any of you guys are looking for a decent (imo) fantasy series I really enjoyed Chronicles of the Black Gate. Kind of edgy at times but all of the main characters are pretty interesting without being the smartest and most sexiest in the whole world, male or female.

I've always liked Simone Giertz and I've always thought her videos and personality were really funny and have such a draw to them. Out of nowhere when watching her build Truckla, I got hit with dumb crush feelings for her. She's so cute. I love watching her build shit, it just fits into my "I want a cute handy butch gf" dream so much.

Anon are you me? lol that's exactly what I tell myself sometimes
I really feel you. I'm in a similar situation except for the fact that's it's my best friend and well, she's not really humble about her good life.
I keep telling myself to not compare my own life, situation and experiences to that of hers but it's easier said than done. I get super envious too and I feel guilty for that too but I try to tell myself that it's really not her fault and that her "luck" doesn't take anything away from me so I try to be indifferent about it.
It's good to do things or have things that set you apart from her so it gives you a sense of pride or confidence and will you stop you from comparing yourself to her. We're all struggling…some more, some less, so don't worry too much about it and it's ok to feel jealous too. Good luck!

Thank you anon, that really means a lot! I keep having to remind myself that I wouldn't be happy if I was in her shoes because what she has isn't what I want. I also think I'm just the kind of person who isn't going to turn what I love into a career- I'm okay with working a stable, boring office job in some random field as long as it means that I can fund my creative outlets to enjoy in my freetime.

This is Addison Anderson the Guy narrates all the Ted-Ed videos
They're comfy but kind of a weird choice for non-fall/winter environments.
I used to wear them during my lazy days during college when it was cold outside.
My main issues are: They don't lend a lot of support to your feet, the inside lining gets nasty from foot sweat or puddles eventually, and they are hard to coordinate into most outfits since they really only work with jeans imo.
Cassandra Clare is a bit of a lolcow herself. She’s also very unfriendly with the cast members and is obviously jealous of the main actress who is far prettier and smarter than her imagined self insert character, Clary (geddit— clary … Clare…). She always has beef with the writers and is a control freak over what decisions they made. She was probably super pissed when they downplayed the incest. Yes, the books had incest in it!
They crop Clare out of promotional photos kek.

I was talking to one of my coworkers at my new job, and she was making me feel a lot better about the future.
Before I landed my current job (receptionist at a foreign news company), I worked in retail, at the largest flagship store in the world of this one clothing company. They shoved that "you can make it all the way to the top if you work hard enough" shit, and my newly graduated ass ate that shit up. A lot of my managers started off from bottom, and I didn't want to get a career in my field of study (it was nice to study, but in the end I realized I had no real passion to make it worth it for me). I worked, and worked, and worked. I kept getting promoted, all of my managers loved me, I made a lot of really great friends, and then suddenly… I realized how unhappy I was. Change is inevitable, and our upper chain of command kept shifting, I started getting berated more and more. I truly gave 200% almost everyday that I was there, I mean, I couldn't give anything less- no one could. 100% wasn't good enough for this company, they wanted to work us to the very bone. I was okay with this at first, after all, my hard work will pay off down the line, right? I'll be able to work in their nice corporate office one day, right…?
A year and a half in, I met a girl and we dated for a while. Things didn't work out in the end, but in that time I dated her, I really realized how much I fucking hated my job. She had the life I wanted, working an office job in the art industry. She had stability and fulfillment from her work, she loved it. At first, I just wanted an office job to have weekends off with her, after all, I'm in retail, can't have too many weekends off. Then I just realized just how much I was starting to burn out. I've been putting in so much work and effort at this fucking job, and no one appreciates me for it. Not that they have to, but then the "why the fuck am I even trying so hard?" really starts to hit.
I didn't quit my job until months after we broke up. In the midst of post-break up depression, combined with my regular depression, I just about lost my fucking mind at work. I fell back into self harm, I seriously contemplated offing myself just about every other week. It took me about a month going back and forth about whether I should just put in my two weeks or not without a job lined up (I had been job hunting for months at this point), I was fearful about getting yelled at by my parents for being a lazy asshole and spending all day at work (this ended up not happening, my parents were very nice to me while I was at home), fearful of having to crawl back to this company, or any other retail company where my soul would just be sucked back out of my body again.
It was sheer luck that I got my current job. A recruiter contacted me, and I replied out of desperation. I was so fucking sick of dealing with all these recruiters where everything kept falling through in the end. I aced the interview, and I got the job. It's super slow in the office, I have free reign of the internet for 8 hours as long as I answer the phone and set up/clean up the office space every morning/evening (it takes like 5 minutes to do everything lol). It's only temporary, the company doesn't hold on to receptionists for longer than a year (so they can get out of paying benefits), but it's finally a step in the right direction. I've been trying to get out of retail and get an office job, but it's so difficult without actual experience on paper. Now I have it!
My coworker calls this place rehab for all their receptionists. She tells me to take my time, enjoy the slowness. Recoup my being while I'm here. Today, she told me that she's sure things will work out for me in the end when I leave here. It's something a coworker at my last job told me too, but I was very fearful and doubtful, after all, I'm just a plain, boring person with no particularly special talents. I don't know, it made me sort of emotional. I hope things will work out for me. I mean, they somehow did last time.

Belle Delphine is selling gamer girl bath water, It's honestly incredible. I've played games all my life, even more games than many of the men i know but i don't see anybody wanting to buy my bath water, lol. The "gamer girl" term is a meme and a fetish at this point, and i pity a younger me who referred to herself as a gamer girl. I wish there was a real quality community of women in games (read: not trannies) without any insta thots who just want to chill and play vidya. Maybe I'm just autistic though. I'm honestly kind of confused that a mess like me is considered the créme de la créme of girls, am i supposed to be flattered? Offended? Proud? There's so many conflicting messages. I don't know, I'm feeling lonely today. Sometimes i feel like the only girl that grew up like this, acts like this and thinks like this. Am i strange? I don't know. Lolcow honestly makes me feel better, there's other women out there that may be like me.
I'm not even a gamer girl but I can see how ethots have erased the visibility of actual girls who play games. When has belle ever played a game, literally?

She used to piss me off, but now I just find her eyeroll-worthy. Another deluded victim

She wants to pander to /cgl/ and Lolcow, but she's also obsessed with getting approval and attention from all sorts of hateful, disgusting men.
She also claims to despise pedophiles, but whiteknights Sam Hyde.
I met my boyfriend’s mom yesterday for the first time, and holy shit it was so fantastic. Me and my boyfriend have only been together for four months + his mom lives with friends but her friends were visiting their son’s house for the fourth, so she had us over for dinner. We got along so well, she was just someone I was immediately comfortable with, her boyfriend was super funny, she had sooo many great stories from her interesting life (she followed the grateful dead in the 90s, was a civil war reenactor and claims she’s seen hella ghosts, lives super simply now just working restaurant jobs and living with friends but loves her life and has no regrets about not having a career). She was super accommodating to me being a vegetarian, we had great pasta and she put the shrimp in another pot for the rest of them to put on it (which I kno doesn’t sound like much but it’s crazy how often things like that don’t even occur to people). Me and my boyfriend were just laughing and having a great time the whole time, and afterwards he and I went back to his house and got a six pack and watched half of the new stranger things. It was a really really fun Fourth of July, this is my second good fourth in a row and it’s slowly becoming one of my favorite holidays if just because there’s nothing you’re required to do but have fun with your s/o and hang out with one of your families. This whole year has just been really good so far :)
This is so cute anon, I'm glad you had a such a good 4th!
I think this was the first year I was able to spend it with my parents since I stopped working in retail. We had a very small (probably a little hazardous) bbq outside, it was cute. My family isn't the most tight knit, but all of us being in the apartment at the same time, chilling out or sleeping in various rooms, just makes me really happy. It really makes me want to save up and buy a small house with a backyard so I can buy a grill and my dad can live out his dad dreams of bbqing.

Am I odd for disagreeing with pictures like this as a bisexual female? I mean, I can't imagine bringing my boyfriend along with me to pride…it's not like there's anything special about a w/f relationship after all, that's like society's default, even if one of them is ~bisexual~.
What did they expect. Yes, the mega corporation whose primary goal is to sell your children toys does not want its images in cemeteries and especially so if they can't charge premiums for those images.
They should have done it under the table like every other family with copyrighted images on their loved ones graves, there was never a doubt what Disney's answer would be.
they are still bi but a bisexual person in a straight relationship isn't going to get beheaded in the middle east. i really don't understand why these people are going around talking about how gay they are while they are in a relationship unless it's some polyamory shit, it just comes off as a cheater's red flag.
if someone unironically uses the word "biphobia" i automatically can't take them seriously anyway, it's so snowflakey. can't you just say homophobia?

most people don’t keep up with aftercare since you have to clean them for a long time which is why they get crusties. Your friend is also stupid, your not supposed to have sexual contact with your nipples piercings for at least 6 months or even more until they’re clean. It sounds like the guy was also way too rough; obviously you can’t be biting and aggressively grabbing pierced nipples, which you need to tell your partner beforehand. Honestly they are work but they’re worth it if you are a clean and careful person!
Some people want to look like bimbos, to them the pain is worth it.
Now what is even worse is clit piercings.
sometimes I end up watching her videos when im high and cause they won't get the fuck out of my recommendations so I have a weird soft spot for her but yeah her amazon tier wigs and wonky middle school scene girl eyeliner irritates me whenever I watch her.

Also I have no idea what to wear because all I have are professional work clothes or super casual clothes. I wanted to order something like pic related to wear but it probably won't come in time now. I just feel so ugly in all of my clothes and want to get a cute feminine dress but idk what stores to get one from where I live
Just go to a mall and check out some stores. I'm sure you'll find something like that, especially in shops like h&m if you have that. It's gonna be fine, you're fine so relax and look forward to it instead of worrying too much about possible scenarios and all.
Hope it goes well!

Sometimes an “identity crisis” can just be you growing as a person anon. It’s a transitional phase where you might lose some previous interests so that you can develop new ones. It’s not necessarily something bad at all. See it as a great time for you to explore new things and new aspects of yourself.

I really irrationally hate stuff that has that forcefully wholesome, magical Nintendo/Ghibli/uber-deep indie storygame vibe with abstract moral messages. It feels like a giant gimmick that I'm not allowed to cricize because its too pure. I don't respect anyone who falls on their hands and kness over a sparkly magical game or movie trailer. Bonus points if you can immediately clock the waifu character in them.
I enjoy my share of ACNL too but its really not that ~pure~ I just want to sell my fish and talk to the cute animals then go to bed. This wasnt really meant to be a vent but that thread is also shit right now.

I'm making a list of manga I want to read, video games I want to beat and series I want to finish this summer and it's way too long. I need someone to slap me everytime I ever get into a new video game or series.>>431530
I miss how the villagers would randomly argue and insult each other in Wild World, it was funny. New Leaf had more repetitive dialogues, the only reason why it wasn't too boring was that it was easy to get a lot of money fast. I hope the new game won't try too hard to be wholesome.
I went through this for a few months recently. It was in combination with my worsening depression, and I felt like my former self had left my body and now I was just a narrative voice living in a body that was on autopilot until my former self came back. It felt like I was chasing my sense of self, and whenever I thought I caught up, I was back in the chase again. I had to figure out what I liked/disliked again, figure out new hobbies and whatever, just figuring out my whole identity and self again. It's like being a four year old, except you're a full-fledged adult and it feels stupid and weird because shouldn't you have figured these things out by now? But everything's changed in an instant.
It's been months and I can say now that I think the me that was just a narrative voice in this body has settled in. I don't know where the previous me has gone, but this is my body now. It sounds 3edgy5me but there's really no other way for me to describe the feeling. In a way, even before this happened, I could say that I wasn't the same person I was a couple years ago. People are always changing, it's just a really jarring time to live through when all that change hits you all at once instead of slowly over a longer course of time.
I'm happier now. My depression is under control and I've been making strides that I wouldn't previously have in indulging in new hobbies and interests. I'm learning more about myself and trying to make my personal bubble more comfortable. It's a freeing feeling when you finally settle in.
I hope things will work out for you anon. Like >>431250
said, take it as a change to explore new things! There's really nothing to lose. You can try out new hobbies, or return to old ones and see how they suit you.
:') I wish I could anon but I was kicked off my parents health insurance and can't afford an individual plan/job doesn't offer me benefits (thanks america)
I appreciate the concern and it's nice to put a name to the feeling, but I think I've managed to do alright moving past it. Not to brush something so serious under the rug, but I don't feel so detached from myself anymore nowadays.
You should also try investing in a homemade seltzer rig.
That way you don't have to keep buying plain seltzer (if you're nasty, you could even try carbonating the grapefruit juice itself)
I've considered it, but I go on cycles where I drink a lot of it and then I stop so it feels bad to buy another machine that I'll only use sporadically (plus I live with my parents and they buy too much junk already, so maybe when I move out!).
I'd definitely be curious enough to carbonate grapefruit juice itself but I just worry it would taste too damn good to me and it would defeat my whole purpose of forcing myself into seltzer in the first place lol. I really love soda but I also recognize drinking at least 30g of sugar a day is awful, and diabetes runs in my family so I'm trying my darnest to be healthy. Also why I don't like plain seltzer, I'm really just trying to achieve a (even slightly) better alternative to soda (I've cut out soda for the most part and drink mostly tea/water, but fuck man, old habits die hard lol).

I just have to say huge thanks to the anon that recommend me the hair remover coil tool. It's great for facial hair, quick, and not really painful. I wish using the epilator wasn't so painful either.
Gah, I really hope Sanders or someone else starts the hard work towards giving people proper mental healthcare.
One thing that's pretty relevant is to stay away from weed, at least regular use, if you're experiencing the symptoms. It's a trigger
for people prone to dissociating. Another is practicing mindfulness meditation, which forces you to be in the moment and fully present. Teaches you tricks to stay inside your body and whatnot. Yoga does the same kinda stuff. These are no-cost tricks so maybe they can help someone else as they have helped me.
It is. Anons still clutch onto the "its lolcow look at where you are" as an excuse to nitpick other women without realizing that 1. It makes us look like sad insecure bitches and 2. It ruins the integrity of threads as archives of cow's bad behaviour.
I've called anons pathetic before in-thread on pt and snow and they fucking screeeeech about their right to make fun of cuticles or wrinkles lmfao. They have to be under 20.
I honestly wish they could just do something about our healthcare system as a whole. I make minimum wage at my current job, but still make too much to qualify for medicaid and $100 over the limit for essential care, yet at the same time, could never afford to move out on my own in my shitty, overpriced as fuck city. It's ludicrous.
I'm not a fan of weed but that's good to know! I'll keep it in mind if the occasion ever comes up (a lot of my friends smoke, but I don't). I've also been trying to practice mindfulness meditation! If only to help keep myself from relying so much on social media, but it's good to know it'll be good for dissociating.
Women are naturally able to carry fat better so I understand, it takes a lot of fat for it to become ugly (or an unfortunate body shape), though I like "bear" type guys too.
Also, I think the biggest problem is that most men don't put any effort into their appearances. They don't take care of their skin, beards, hair, so most men look ugly. As women we are taught from an early age to groom ourselves. Basic things make a difference. Even a relatively unkempt woman can look better than the average men.
I'm glad the whole nasolabial folds thing got made into a joke here too.
I think it's largely because chubby women try harder to look attractive, or dress flatteringly to her shape. In my experience, a lot of chubby/fat/obese guys were very of the "big portions of cheap ass food == superior spending choices" and similarly were cheap as fuck around clothing. Throw in general male lack of hygiene and whatnot, and it quickly becomes a burning trainwreck.
side note, but I fucking hate that "big ass portions of cheap food is better" shit. yeah, it could be better if you stretch that shit over several meals, but none of these people do that. they either eat it all at once or waste a shitload of food.

AMERICAN ANONS I NEED YOUR HELP
So, I'm basically planning on scaping from my country because I refuse to live in this rotting land.
I really like the idea of living in the US, but I have lots of questions; first of all, I'm latina (white passing physically, but my surname is GONZALEZ) Am I going to be doomed to eternal discrimination?
Also, can you live by yourself while working a shitty job like being a cashier at Mc Donalds or working in a clothing store? I finished school, but I don't have a College degree, will I be able to get a job?
PLEASE help me, I'm desperate lmao.
For reference, in my country you can't sustain yourself unless you have a very well-paid job (that you can ONLY get by having a college degree). I like art and animation, but I can't work or study anything related to that because the art industry is just non existent here.
Everything you can tell me helps!
(Btw please tell me if this doesn't belong itt).
pic semi related
if you're white passing, you will be fine. Americans will bend over backwards to acknowledge the parts of you closest to whiteness.
that said, being poor/immigrant without resources will be your biggest obstacle, over your face or surname. the "third world immigrant who worked hard into the American dream" is probably totally impossible these days.
no, you're not fucked with a hispanic last name. you can always move to a place with a large latin population anyways like texas, california, the southwest, or fl, or simply change your last name. i am white hispanic and no one can ever tell and no one has ever been rude to me when they find out my last name. worst case scenario is that wasps will make shit up like "oh, i can hear your cuban accent now!" (i don't have a cuban accent). people are nasty to people that look mestizo. even if you were born here, they're very nasty because of appearance, not your name. being bilingual here (especially in the aforementioned places) is a plus too. it's basically a requirement in s fl for example. as long as you look white, honestly, you're golden.
Honestly I think so much of this depends on where you want to go. Discrimination? Might be okay/lesser in big, liberal cities vs small communities. Living by yourself while working a shitty job? Might be okay in small communities (lower min wage but also lower cost of living) vs get fucked in big cities.
Retail work, depending on the company, is easy to get even without a college degree. Depending on the company, you might get paid a pretty good amount too. Please, for the love of god don't work at Walmart. Even a place like Target treats its employees (slightly) betters. Bulk stores like Costco and BJs paid their employees well above minimum wage in my city.
I'm very curious as to how you plan on getting in and staying here anon. Not in a "get out immigrants!" way, just genuinely concerned for you. Do you have family here?
On a small side note, I have a friend who also never went to college but now works for an animation company here in NYC getting her foot in the door by working lower positions at other animation companies, so it's possible to get where you want to. Difficult, but possible imo.
Wow, thank you so much for the replies! I'm very surprised that discrimination isn't that big of a problem. I didn't consider going to the US for a very long time because I thought it would hell just for being named Gonzalez, haha.>>432205
I actually don't have anything in particular planned… Is it THAT difficult to move there? I thought it just would require you to find a job and prove that you are not going to the US to traffic people or be a terrorist. And no, I don't have family there. I just went a couple of times for vacation.
Tbh I was mainly encouraged to go there because it gives me the impression that you can live a decent life without having to semi-enslave yourself. Being middle class in the US looks like the equivalent of being middle-upper class where I live.
I have to admit though that I am terrified of terrorism, wars and tornadoes/natural disasters in general.
Oh yeah, I'd say I find 80% of women attractive but my taste in men is…really specific.
I think chubby men can be cute if they're proportionate (thick limbs as well as torso, not just belly) and well dressed though. It's rare but I've seen them.
Depends on where you live and cost of living, most places minimum wage is still super low and impossible to live without roommates unless you live in a literal shit shack. There's next to no opportunity to move up in retail or McDonald's jobs, and the pay is still very low even if you do. You're better off either pursuing more "respectable" positions like administrative assistant or receptionist etc while self teaching and honing a skill and portfolio in something like coding. If you're exceptionally lucky an employer might agree to send you to school, but this isn't common.
But yeah, like, you need a visa if you're going to immigrate legally, which is several thousand dollars. You can't just rock up to the border and say "I swear I'm not a terrorist."
No one will give a fuck about your surname. If someone says something, they're just fucking idiots who are assholes anyway.
As for the job part, that depends on where you live. But it's honestly hard to live alone on an "entry level" job like McDonald's or other retail jobs. They don't pay the greatest and, even worse than that, the hours can vary wildly. Sometimes you work full weeks and get a decent amount of cash. Other times, they'll cut you back to 15 hours or some meager shit. You may have to get a roommate to split rent with. Also, various states and cities are more expensive, so just look around and see what sounds the best.
Yes, it is difficult to (legally) move here. There's a reason why we have so many undocumented immigrants (I really don't blame them).
This is the general "how to get into the U.S." page https://www.usa.gov/enter-us
This is what I think would more specifically apply to you https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate.html
The TL;DR of it is that without family here (or even with family, U.S. immigration is a fucking pain in the ass) I suppose it'll be near impossible to find someone to sponsor you. I don't believe any retail job would sponsor a low level employee (and my memory is pretty shaky here, but I do believe they also have to prove that they've gone through all available applicants already living in the U.S. and that you are the one that is somehow above everyone else and best fit for the role, or some shit like that, plus it's expensive).
The only "easy" ways I could think of is coming in on a student visa and then somehow finding and proving yourself to an employer that they should sponsor you after you graduate. Downsides are student visas have very limited working hours, and finding a willing employer to agree to sponsoring you is difficult. Or you could marry a citizen.
I know a lot of this comes off as brash, but this is the reality of it. I don't even think I got all of it right, legal immigration is nuts here.
I did some research on this many years ago as a guy I knew moved over and I wanted to find out how he did it.
You need to be sponsored by a company. Generally Visas are not granted unless you are above a certain tier for jobs, as in: programmer, accountant, lawyer, doctor. If you are below that sort of qualified job you won't get sponsored to get in.
Service jobs will not get you in. Also if you do get in via sponsorship, and the sponsorship ends, you need to leave the country.
The american dream thing is false once you do your research on taxes, health insurance, and the fact minimum wage does not cover the cost of living in any state.
I advise you move to Ireland, the UK or some other european country. European countries like France and Spain will have zero issues with your nationality whereas I'm pretty sure most Americans are racist to a degree - it's in the culture, literally built from slavery. Try to move to a European country on a student visa and see how it goes. I've been researching life in the US for years as where I'm from the image of the US is so far from the truth it's ridiculous - for example Florida is posited as a paradise holiday destination where I live, whereas Americans think it's a shithole, as far as I've gathered (e.g. the Florida Man meme).
The Florida man meme is a good deal of self-deprecation, but this country is basically descending into a gigantic ATM (in a similar fashion to the gilded era). The nightmarish thing is seeing that
still want to come here.
This. To be honest the things Americans whine about feel like the ~1st world problems~ meme.
I live in a place where you can't defend yourself if somebody tries to kill you because YOU go to jail.
No abortion. Women rights don't exist and everybody laughs in your face even if you go to the police station full of bruises. People can be pedophiles online all they want, because unless they actually rape a child, they are considered innocent. Public transport is incredibly expensive and is fucking impossible to have a car. My 26 year old sister can't afford to live on her own even with her privileged well paid job. Also inflation. Prices going every two months.
Ofc moving from a 3rd world country to literally anywhere else is going to be good. Sorry for the rant, I got legit upset while writing that.
South America. I rather not specify which country, but yeah I hate it here.
Your reply felt so kind that it made me feel a little less shitty though. I hope you live in a beautiful place with legal abortion and zero crime, anon.
As someone that came to the US from a shit 3rd world country it's better in a lot of aspects but also fucking expensive to the point I can't afford a good home and I'm still in an area where crime happens and people here discriminate me. Thought about going to a cheaper state but a lot of them tend to be conservative and well… Yeah.
Also a lot of people that come here from poorer countries usually come with the idea that the US will solve all of their problems and then reality hits them hard. Some can't handle it and go back (usually single dudes) and other stay because at least the pay is better and they can use it to help their family back home. It's even worse for the people who aren't here legally because they really don't have that many rights and they can get deported anytime.
Also everything is pretty fucking expensive in the US and at least some of the people who are lucky to have double citizenship in both the US and Mexico can just live in Mexico for cheaper and work in the US and make more than what Mexicans do. Some of my co-workers have homes in Mexico in nice areas. The hardest thing they have to deal with from what I've heard is the border crossing.
Of course Mexico does have its problems from what I've heard but those people seem to be pretty happy. I won't even try going there though because I heard Mexicans are pretty awful to South Americans, especially with what's been going on lately.>>432284
Man I feel you, especially on the women's rights thing. Holy fuck in my home country I've been in many situations where I felt I was going to get raped. Saludos y suerte amiga.

I find it pretty funny how every troon and woke twitter user points at this narcissistic effeminate male character and calls him a trans woman. He was based off of what the Japanese think gay men speak like/act like, so a mere stereotype, and yet everyone swears up and down that this shit is true representation.
Florida man meme is just that - a meme. It exists because the florida news cycle works differently from other states. In Florida, damn near everything committed gets reported, hence getting weird ass stories about a dude in his underwear kidnapping an alligator for his D&D game or whatever.
As for Florida being a paradise holiday destination or a shithole, contrary to what you may think, a place can be both.
Aussie, and I get the same feeling. But what’s even worse is hearing Americans outside of TV, it doesn’t sound right! It feels really surreal, like, they only belong in media (whether it’s tv, movies or YouTube) and hearing them irl is extremely jarring and honestly unpleasant. I hate Americans trying to pull off Aussie accents in media though, they never get it right and it’s always in the uncanny valley >>432396
I didn’t realise just how strong and harsh my accent is until I went to England, it was all I could focus on for quite a while

I just learned that Mumkey Jones cheated on Sheepover(his gf who supporter him finally and emotionally throughout his Youtube career) with his Twitch Mod LiutheKitty who is a Furry Pron artist and had also had previously Statutory raped a 15 year old boy
It's fucking wild, isn't it anon?
He's edgy and neckbeardcore though, so I'm not sure what I expected. Maybe on some level he knew this girl is who he actually deserves kek.
It was trying to remember how it sounded like to me before I was able to understand it, and I guess it more or less sounds like Jojo Siwa when she speaks all fast and unintelligible.
Also compared to my own language, english has a very fancy? and exaggerated feel to it.
I don't know how to put it, but take for example when english-speaking people try to talk in japanese. You have a word like YA-ME-TE and when they try to say it, it comes out like YAAaaAY-MEeEEY-TEeEYYyYY. It literally feels like they drag the pronunciation a bit too much, and add vowels where they shouldn't be.
I wish I could speak properly in english, some words require some actual skill to be pronounced correctly lmao. For example I seem unable to pronounce "literally" the American way. It's impossible, I don't know how you guys do it, haha. I just say LICHERALLY.
Why does this make me so sad?
A super cute, loving and supporting gf still gets cheated on. Reminds me of when Beyoncé got cheated on. You could be way too good for a man and he'd still cheat on you, leaves me with no hope.

…but if you never had sex with your virgin bf how can you compare it?
Anyway, I'm sure the answer is that those anons are dommes/prefer taking control. Personally am also a virgin but I'm kind of touch averse so I'd prefer a starfish virgin bf.
I personally prefer virgin boys because I'm extremely shy and very VERY socially awkward (also inexperienced af) and the idea of being with a guy who knows way more than me just scares me and makes me 1000% more insecure.
And the idea that he has been with other women before me and can (and WILL) compare me to them is horrible to me. I mean, not that he will straight up tell me that his past experiences were better, but in his mind he will probably miss the good sex.
I also don't trust men and assume that they always talk in detail about their sex experiences with their friends, so yeah. I don't love the idea of being known as the bad sex gf.
AGAIN, I'm very insecure and paranoid, so everything is probably in my head etc etc, but I can't help thinking this way.
That being said, I'm happy that my current bf is actually pretty decent (for a man) and was a kissless virgin before he met me. If we break up though, I will probably end up single until death kek.
well that does make sense.
i can compare it because my ex didn't fucking know where my vagina was and i had to keep taking his hand and showing him. he watched porn so how does he just not know, especially if i had to show him multiple times, and he couldn't find my clitoris. anytime he tried fingering me he did it wrong and it really hurt. any direction i gave him, he would listen, but not do what i said.
he also had this grabbing problem. he has absolutely no idea how to touch a woman. he would do like, crab claws as i called it. at least he found it funny… but he didn't fucking stop grabbing me like that. not sensual or fun at all. can guarantee sex with him would have been confusing, difficult, and painful. glad i hooked up with the current guy. he is now my friend and he is amazing at domming me.
imo, it's a lot less embarrassing with an experienced guy bc he knows what he's doing. being around virgins is embarrassing because they have no idea what the parts of a vagina are.>>432593
he is inept, i don't think it's hard either. everything i do with current guy is very easy.
i think i got really lucky finding my friend because is he incredibly respectful and receptive. we had sexted a lot beforehand so he did everything i wanted perfectly. not even after a week of meeting he fucked me, and it was great.
my ex and i were together for 2+ years. we sexted many more times than i did with this guy. he watched porn before we got together, then just jerked off to my nudes, so he knew exactly what my anatomy looked like. we tried fucking but as soon as he put a condom on his dick shrunk back so we couldn't fuck. he knew what i wanted, and he was a great listener. he is just too queasy about sex and too traditional/vanilla to please me.
plain and simple, the dude is too inexperienced to get me off lol.
I think this anon described why I'd be less embarrassed very well >>432595
, I'm very insecure as well so even if I had sex with a virgin I imagine at least I could tell him more easily what to do and how.
i DON'T WANT virginal bfs i agree with you completely. it's very weird to want a virgin when you're 20 and older. ahaha replying to the wrong person?>>432630
hate to "not all men" you but the guy i'm with now is very respectful and doesn't shame me and actually checks in a lot while we're fucking around that i'm okay.
>>432669>it's very weird to want a virgin when you're 20 and older
Man, what if you are
a virgin who's 20 or older?>inb4 loser
It's true but you shouldn't say it.
>>432708>some mass "reckoning" and everyone's dirty laundry of what they've done online will be leaked by google
Why would you go and spread this anxiety anon? Now it's going to be in my head…I've done nothing horrible since being a shotafag at 14 though.
What is it though, anon? Come one. You're torposting now, right?
Aw, that's actually wholesome anon.
…I'm also into it though so I may have a bias.
thanks, guys. i feel slightly less degenerate now>babies

My nephew just showed me a 15 minute
video about black yoshi a character who has an obsession with water Mellon and kool-aid. Black Yoshi also was voiced by the most stereotypical black voice a white guy could pull off. I'm so confused right now.
This will sound silly anon, but a lot of people do appreciate less feminine features in women. I went down the same route but it made me hate my features that were feminine because I felt like I'd never escape my sex and would never pass as anything but a woman. I do like to dress more androgynously from time to time but don't attribute it to anything but taste and curiosity about how people will treat me, sometimes it's nice to get treated differently because more often than not if I'm dressed masc no one gives me a hard time and people fuck off. >>432956
is right, there's way more to looking like a troon than just having a flat chest. They may think you're a transman or nonbinary but it sounds like you're embracing the latter instead of embracing the variety of bodies someone female can have.
Fuck the idea that you need to be feminine to be a woman, or a worthy woman! But we all have to cope somehow.
Gender identity gets shaky in people that have less "feminine" traits specifically bc society has pushed certain types of appearances on us. Experimenting with your look and perhaps "presenting" (yeah I hate to use the vernacular but it does define the situation) a more masculine or feminine way depending on your mood isn't really harmful. Gender stereotypes are bullshit anyway, clothes are not divided by what gender they are for. They're divided by their shapes and materials. Wear what you want and don't let people tell you you're really a man inside. You are a woman and your way of being female is a natural and real way of being female.
The only problem is when people start to deny biology just to shoehorn themselves into a different box than the one they were previously given. Don't fall for that and you're gucci.
Yeaaaah I know I'm overreacting, that's probably why I wrote it all down here to kinda sort my thoughts out on the subject. I've been bullied and judged a lot for not being feminine enough throughout my school years so it messed with my head. In reality I probably just come off as a lesbian instead of an actual male when I'm having "guy days" and wearing masculine clothing.
I don't mind coming off as a FtM either because that means I'm still clocked as a woman, which is good. >>432997>>432998
Lol I think using the vernacular or slang is fine, reee-ing about it just derails a convo. Thank you anons, I needed the reminder that gender norms are just a weird social construct. I mean, back in the day, pink was a super manly color in France, which really speaks volumes on how funny we can be with changing social norms and stuff. I just want to feel elegant and feminine like a lot of my friends or celebs but I feel so ugly and clunky, and thus I turn to the genderfluid thing so that I feel "valid
" in feeling ugly and clunky. Like that if I am presenting as masculine, then its acceptable for me to look the way I am.
This convo is really weird but I appreciate that its happening, its a phenomenon that I believe might actually be common in some women who feel the same way but cant quite figure it out. Or maybe shows that a genderfluid identity comes from this idea of "well im not a good enough woman so lets be male" or something.
I have a hobby and aspire to turn it into a career eventually, I just don't have the drive to give it the time and energy it needs and git gud. I struggle to focus on anything, rarely watch TV or movies, rarely read books. My life would be pretty much the same if I were a brain in a jar tbh, but simpler 'cause I wouldn't have to dress or feed myself, lol.
Do you think you have depression, anon? I don't think I do, I think it's just my personality.

I just fucking love lolcow dot farm wow
I actually experience personal growth being here. It’s possible to heal from crippling cool-girlism and internalized misogyny from teen years spent between tumblr and cancerous chans.
I just overall have so much compassion for every anon here. Even when I’m being called a retard and disagreed with, it’s hard to feel any bitterness because I know that we probably bonded in a dif thread. I learned to curb my triggered typing and choose my battles, huge step forward for a sperg like me. If anything it comforts me to know that we manage to be supportive without being hugboxy. Sorry I’m just drunk and emotional but yeah.
It really warms my heart to read loving odes anons have for our board. Outsiders can call us “femcel” all they want (the absolute cope), they can lurk all they want, but they’ll never experience the bliss of finally finding a place on the internet where you can unapologetically be a woman, warts and all. Xoxo
There are definitely more ways to have sex than just "lol benis in bagina :DD" anon.
At a certain point, PIV just feels like a predictable, banal inevitability.
Sex is not just PIV, jfc anon. >How dare you not like what I like?? So pretentious and vapid and probably underage smh
You sound like you desperately need to grow up lol
Are you ESL? You really think only one kind of sex exists? Consult Google.
Please get over yourself with this "You must be immature if you don't enjoy the same things I do in the bedroom" BS, it's kind of pathetic to be this hung up on what someone else likes

I like to look at fucked up shit and shock people. I've been doing it for years. I remember asking my friend for his computer and setting a mirror to Last Measure as his homepage when I was like 12. Should I get psychological help or just grow up? I just turned 20 and I can't act like an edgelord forever. Need to get my shit together.
tl;dr but what I got from the first sentence or two of this rant was>I'm not upset, YOU'RE upset! How DARE you reply to my angry posts?? You need to sit there and let me yell at you on the internet
It's just not that deep. Reply to someone, get a reply back, usually with the same energy. Don't, don't. I don't know what you expected, but chill out.
i'm a fucking retard who can't read and always forgets to sage forgive me please>>433188
I'll probably try to get help, like go to a psychologist or something. I need to stop being so immature.
If you're not actually getting pleasure out of hurting people or something, it's probably nothing to worry about. Some people are just "like that".
I still have a retarded, childish sense of humor as an adult. It's whatever.
Don't worry about it! The anon you misquoted would never admit she's immature.
In any case, you are still fairly young and will experience a lot of bullshit that will make you more mature through experience. Even with your problem, something like pushing away a close friend could cause you to wake up. Obviously shock and gore isn't inherently wrong, mainstream has tons of that stuff (just not as extreme) but it's really up to you how it's affecting you. Something I noticed though is people who claim they're mature usually aren't, because it takes a lot to be really self-aware. Good luck with whatever you chose though!>>433201
Too bad it's not in your area so you wouldn't have so much time to shit up the board jfc. >>433202
I don't think >>433204
is the one who was arguing with them.
nta but >>433183
accidentally quoted a reply to the troll earlier then deleted it so it makes sense imo. also typing style is different. (im really confused in general tho)
They themselves are a troll. They've been in this thread all this time, which is how they saw what seems to be a deleted post, and why they thought it was a good idea to address the other person and throw themselves into the infighting at the same time.
It's either two trolls, or one samefag like >>433208
I'm just going to repeat the words of >>433202
for the second time. Get some damn rest.

No words. You're making zero sense, and only one thing can stop it.
I'm saying that the sperg who keeps trying to defend themselves needs to take a nap. I didn't pretend to be anyone else by accident, I don't even know what you're talking about.
By replying, aren't you adding to it, too, anyway? Just let it die, let the thread get back on topic and shut the hell up already.
>>433230>implying this thread had a topic
NTA but no one seems to be defending themselves? Everyone just seems to be worried they're talking to the sperg-anon.
With the endless, transparent>NTA>NTA>NTA
while shamelessly dragging out the argument, I'm honestly starting to wonder. How can they be so low IQ? Did trying to learn Russian burn out their brains?
I kind of agree with >>433222
the post reads like a someone being autistic ironically. Do they hate gay people or were they just really embarrassed because it seems like the latter. What kind of platinum retard does this?
I'm on the "update" thread, and lmao. This can't be real.>Once they both left I just watched T.V and was on my phone then I decided to look around the home and I went to check my dad's bedroom and came across an iphone which belonged to my dad's boyfriend clearly he doesn't use that phone anymore since he was using another one and I came across some questionable & gross photos of my dad and him I saw some disturbing videos one of the videos was of my dad giving head to him and cum dripping on his mouth I was so disgusted I can't believe my dad would let him videotape him like that so disgusting. When I saw the photos and videos on that phone I wanted to delete them all but then if he does use that phone then his boyfriend would notice I want to tell my dad that he shouldn't let his boyfriend video him like this because it could get leaked but I'm too embarrassed to tell him and that he will know I was snooping in his room.
So, after walking into her dad's room and seeing some shit she didn't want to see, she somehow had no problem with snooping in her dad's room again
, on top of looking through his phone? It just doesn't make sense.
LSA is full of gay men LARPing as black women. I bet you this is the "dad's" messy boyfriend writing tall tales.
Another thing.>we finally spoke about what happened the day I caught him and he said that is no different when a man is making love to a woman and that was his first time being a bottom which is hard to believe since his man was getting it in smoothly and him not looking like he was in pain but enjoying it :mask::mask:. He looked really uncomfortable when he was telling me all this.
What parent says this to their kid? What the fuck?>When my dad was ready to leave his boyfriend was sitting down eating his breakfast and my dad kissed me on the forehead and said bye and then he kissed his boyfriend on the forehead than his man said 'no come back and do it how you usually kiss me' and pointed at his lips and for the first time I saw them kiss my dad gave him a quick kiss and his boyfriend wasn't satisfied with it and said do it again and my dad was like no we have a guest and his boyfriend then said 'you don't have a problem with two guys in love having a kiss, do you?' and i said no I don't care that's when his boyfriend kisses my dad it lasted like 10 seconds I honestly wanted to cry and throw up at the same time.
This reads like something out of a TV show, or some fujoshi's yaoi fanfic.

Dumbass soda sperg incoming.
They changed the Mountain Dew recipe in my country recently. I decided to get a bottle for myself as a treat since it's my favourite soda (yes, really) and I didn't notice the "new dew, new taste" thing on the bottle until I got home. I thought to myself, well, they wouldn't change it that much.
It's literally piss-colored now. Not neon like it usually was, a natural color of slightly dehydrated piss. The bottle is still the same neon though and it's full of lies now.
It tastes nothing like my favourite diabetes in a bottle. NOTHING. What the fuck? Why? You ruined a perfectly terrible drink by making it just terrible. Still citrusy, but much much blander and without the tooth-shattering sweetness.
Also I noticed that for some reason dew made in my country is still "Mountain Dew" while if I buy imports it's "Mtn Dew" now. I guess I will try to look for Mtn next time, but they rarely import the original taste since it's made cheaply locally.
Fucking. I drink soda maybe once a month and I only like maybe three or four varieties and they ruined my tasty tasty guilty pleasure gamer juice.
Glad I made you laugh.
Mountain Dew is such a meme, but I loved it with all my heart (and cavities) since I was a kid.
There were maybe 6-7 years when you couldn't get it anywhere in my country and I was so sad about it, because I loved soda so much as a kid and dew was always my favourite. I flipped my shit when I saw it in stores again.
I don't know if me being a gamur gurl makes it better or worse.

Sorry I'm going to sperg here about obscure cyberpunk anime because I don't know anyone else who's seen this series and I'm steamed.
I watched Armitage III a couple days ago, and decided to check out the TVTropes page. Basically, the film is set in a world where some humans ended up immigrating to Mars as a result of overpopulation, while others stayed on Earth. Mars' society advances by use of technology, mainly robots. They also make mindless, obedient sex bots (known as "Seconds" - their manual labor robots were "Firsts"). Earth's society becomes more and more feminist politically, while Mars gets flooded with all the men who just want to fuck sex bots all day (though there are some real women mixed into Mars population). This causes Mars to become a sausage fest with a dismally low reproduction rate, for obvious reasons.
The humans living on Mars want a society that is independent from Earth, but for the aforementioned reasons, they mainly have to rely on human immigrants from Earth to reproduce. To remedy this, they secretly create a special kind of robot, "Thirds", who are indistinguishable from humans both physically and mentally, and can reproduce. For certain reasons, the plan falls through. Thirds are no longer produced, but there are still some that exist. Many of them live amongst "real" humans undetected (one of them was an artist, another was a famous country singer, one more was an author, etc). When Earthlings get wind of this plot and the existence of Thirds at all, they start to fear losing their political stronghold over Mars, so one by one, the Thirds start getting targeted and destroyed by Earth operatives, some of them being businessmen who make maximum profit from Mars being under Earth's thumb. The media spin Earth puts out on the topic of Thirds is that the very idea of a robot that can conceive goes against basic humanity. Meanwhile, the killings themselves are being heavily suppressed from mainstream knowledge.
The primary main character of the series is a Third herself (named Armitage), and the secondary male character is a human police officer from Earth who transferred to Mars after his wife was killed by a robot. They investigate the killings and battle with the government.
The series touches upon the question of what constitutes a valid being deserving of rights, the limits of technology, and the morality of creating an artificial human in the first place.
So, I expected that when I went to the TVTropes page, I'd get some nuanced information, salient points and nice analysis. Instead, I got one of the more retarded, neckbeard-y interpretation of the film's events I've seen yet:
>On earth, the average human female is super-privileged - every political figure on Earth is a woman. As a result, few women want to immigrate to Mars, which keeps the colony from establishing the population it needs to declare independence. Deconstructed with a reversal of the Double Standard; a great many men are extremely dissatisfied with this, resulting in a Mars-based corporation called conCeption creating the Second-type androids - fully-functional Ridiculously Human Robots with the faces of young girls and the bodies of adult women - resulting in a massive wave of Earth immigrants eager for non-feminist sexual partners, even robotic ones. Eventually, these are upgraded to full-blown Artificial Humans capable of conceiving children. When Earth discovers this, the resulting jealousy and fear of being replaced results in The War of Earthly Aggression - Earth demands that Mars eliminate the Thirds or be completely annihilated.
This shit literally didn't happen. Way to let the entire movie's themes fly over your fucking head just to have a little bitch about The Feminazis. Totally, yes, the crux of the film is that bio-women are "just jealous" of Thirds and "fear being replaced" because they went and scared off all the good men to Mars to get robowaifus. Let's ignore the fact that the film shows that 99% of the people protesting Thirds in the street and yelling "Don't take our jobs" were pretty clearly men, one of which was literally holding his barren, mindless sex-bot on a leash at the same time, and that all those killing the Thirds were also men (one of which was literally an assassin robot who had clear sadism aimed at other robots, for fuck's sake). Let's also ignore that at no point does the series place a sympathetic light on the men who come to Mars just to own Seconds as playmates and objects. The female main character literally calls out her male counterpart and accuses him of being just like the other men, specifically because she's so fucking disgusted by them, despite being a robot herself (or rather because she's a robot, except she's a Third, which means she has the feelings and agency of a real woman).
The most we see of actual women speaking against Thirds are literally just a TV presenter saying something like "I'm against robots replacing humans, but I don't condone violence" and the female president stating "The idea of a robot who can conceive goes against Earth's position on basic humanity". It's highlighted repeatedly that the anti-Third killings are done to keep an economic and political monopoly on another planet, and that the moral aspect is a purely performative front made to sugarcoat their ruthlessness, not an earnest, hysterical femoid biological crisis. It's about money and power, and nowhere in the series is women's jealousy ever stated as a real factor. One of the Thirds who gets killed is literally a lesbian who's in a relationship with a human woman, meaning that she was never a threat to actual women (or humankind in general) since she wouldn't have reproduced in the first place, but I guess whoever wrote that part of the TVTropes page had to gloss over that for their agenda. I literally went out of my way to read the fucking manga just to confirm that this interpretation was bullshit. Sure enough, I was right. I fucking hate when "manosphere" cucks project their broke-ass, weak interpretations onto media, but I hate it even more when they unironically present them as factual.
I have nothing to say except that I was going to completely gloss over and ignore your very long post, but something compelled me to read all of it and now I'm going to watch this series. I wouldn't consider myself a sci-fi fan/don't really actively seek out sci-fi series, but something about sentient robots in anime and their right to rights/where do we draw the line with them really fuckin gets me going.
Thanks for this anon. Also, fuck men.

Sometimes I still get after years really, really, REALLY angry that I missed some today well-known or even very famous music acts when they just started out and did concert in very small locations for cheap. Just last month I saw a band in a fucking soccer stadium, which I missed ~ 10 years ago when they just did their very first European Tour. They played in a location for less than 30 people back then fml and I just missed them because I wasted my money on a gift for a friend that ghosted me shortly after, I should've spend that money on that goddamn ticket on not on that girl jesus christ or I was poor to even afford a 10 euro ticket another time …. cries
Thank you for posting about this! I've heard about Armitage but didn't know it would be up my alley (even though I love 90's anime).
I will give it a chance soon!

YouTube comments are a real trip sometimes.
I hate seeing the "try guys" faces every time I go on YouTube. How does their boring shit end up being on trending anyway?
That whole coming-out thing he did was also pretty unnecessary. Just tweet you're gay and go; he already said he was part of lgbt long time ago so it's not even a coming-out.
Tired of seeing these mediocre ass men leading YouTube.

I discovered "BoyChat", a message board for pedophiles. It's mostly full of older men who wax poetic about pederasty in ancient societies and post psuedo-intellectual bullshit. There's also a lot of delusional shit about how there's nothing wrong with "loving boys". Many of them genuinely see their pedophilia as valid, and believe that society is the one in the wrong.
They're kind of a horrorcow community for me, and they make me hate men even more. I've taken to screencapping the most delusional, disgusting and/or intriguing posts I find. Some of them border on downright alarming, like pic related.

The same furry from the last cap bragging about getting oral sex from his cat. He later adds that the cat licked up his cum. This was posted today, and the bestiality thread itself was at the top of the front page.
This one is what really convinced me that this community was worth posting about, to be honest. It's far too much cancer to keep to myself.
Ouch I'm sorry Anon, that must have been awful. At least you just ended messy and didn't have an accident because of this.
One of the reasons I'm often reluctant to drive on the highway is that you can't just casually pull over and deal with your shit.

ZENDAYA FINALLY KISSED A REAL GIRL
nuff of that other shit
I'm more annoyed that people actually think anyone will do it. Internet is full of pussies who think hashtags will save the middle east, why would they do anything like this? Lmao
Also the distance between the warning signs (aka photo op area) and the actual base is like 8-10 miles and there are drivers on guard at every warning sign area. Its like these people have never visited the area on a tourist trek before.
I'm gonna be pissed if this results in an entire blockade or if the perimeter is pushed further out to the roadside. Nobody can think more than 24 hours ahead of their actions, the cool tourist trap stuff along the Extraterrestrial Highway could be in danger of shutting down because of these morons if it really gets out of hand.

Will check the latter out! Seems like it has no substantial plot but I aim for style and writing anyway and each line is apparently poetic. >>434931
Honestly like anything as long as the writing is good. Currently going through the Nobel prize for literature list rn.

Useless context: a few years ago I stumbled across a youtube channel of a little girl named Nina. She's half white/half japanese and the videos were just really cute videos of her, like regular videos you take of your kids. The videos were removed by the parents for privacy reasons, but every once in a while I just think back on them. I was trying to find any potential updates on her life or something but instead found some reuploads. I also found that gimmieaflakeman has an old video of Nina on his channel and found this on the comments and now I'm down a weird rabbit hole that is this person's deviantart. I know I shouldn't be laughing they're autistic but all of their journals are so amusing. I just needed to share this somewhere.

samefag, I don't want to spam this thread but this rabbit hole goes a lot fucking deeper than I thought.
She's just a nutcase who goes off on tangents and rambles a whole bunch, and constantly hounds and follows up with people who don't answer her questions. I want to say she's just a dumb kid but apparently she's in her mid-20s now. She's been harassing people on the internet for over 10 years lol. It's really watered down milk but it's funny to read through all this.
I didn’t say it’s cute or funny, but it’s by no means inconsiderate either

He was an incel wasn't he?
Couple of points:
>Kvothe is something of a Gary Stu, but it's contrasted with present-day Kvothe/Kote basically being a useless fuck who has lost all his powers and getting completely beaten up by two runaway soldiers>All the people in it being white isn't a legit criticism. It's quasi-medieval fantasy
The made-up samurai culture is shit though and the book could have done without any of it. I hate "eastern" style nations in western-focused fantasy.
All that said I do like Kingkiller Chronicles because I think it's interesting how the book plays around with the themes of myth and how its born and how it changes into multiple narratives over time.
