I hate it when people see a meme, 2me4meirl, or watch a piece of media, bojack horseman/rick and morty, that calls them out for having bad habits or being a shitty person and all they do I say 'ha ha that's literally me' without any effort to improve.
The worst people at this are those dumb 'relatable artist' ones. Instead of liking 50 'I cant draw hands memes' have you tried practicing hands?

You know what’s really fucking annoying? Me. I’ve had depression as far back as I can remember, grew into anxiety and bpd shortly after. I know everyone fucking hates me because I hate myself and everyone is so cute telling me to get help. Bitch I wish I was privileged enough to afford help. I’ve tried to seek help, been to a number of therapists that promised to help me budget a plan for recovery, but I can’t even afford the bargain bin shit. I’m at my fucking breaking point and I know I’ll kill myself soon because I can’t fucking live like this anymore. I can’t fucking live with myself anymore. There’s too much shit wrong with me and not enough money to fix it. I don’t want anyone’s sympathy I just want it to fucking end. I honestly feel like I have no control over myself anymore and it fucking scares me how fast I can go from neutral to sobbing or screaming. I don’t even remember the last time I was fucking happy. I haven’t even been able to fake it anymore, every day is a fucking nightmare that won’t end. And it’s no ones fucking fault but my own. I’m the problem.

I wish there were any internet communities pertaining to Islam from a Muslim background but with a
secular point of view that wasn't filled with grown men who sperg and get triggered over little shit they disagree with.

When I was a teenager I so desperately wanted to milk Islam-"critics" but then I came across a discord group filled with sweet Muslims who then later showed their fucked up opinions and I was done. I still want to though, but I doubt any normal (or literally any) communities for this exist.

I just wanna buy cute platform shoes off of my cheap and shitty asian sites but they never go over size 8. And then companies like Dollskill come by and take those same shoes, make the sizes bigger, then mark the price up at least 3x.

What do you mean anon? You sound insecure
The term innie and outtie vaginas aren't in itself sexist terms, and women with innie vaginas have labia minoras too, it's just not sterotypically attractive, which is fine because human genitals generally aren't attractive, just like some dick shapes look weird and gross and other dick shapes look more attractive

There are however, definitely men who are complete assholes about it and tinfoil about how she must have been hoeing all her life and how women with outties aren't worthy of sex, love or relationships, which is disgusting of course

a few months after moving in the other two became a couple and now she's always shrieking and putting on this grating pouty voice, and he's laughing really loudly
he's in general loud with everything, and our flat smells like weed constantly because of him
also i can always tell when he bought more weed because whenever he's high HE FORGETS TO CLEAN THE TOILET AFTER TAKING A SHIT
but then this dude had THE GALL to throw a tantrum about a small period blood stain under the toilet seat (as in when you flip it up, guess he found it when pissing while standing)
he's also the worst bass player in this country but will crank up the sound so much that we regularly have neighbors complaining
i know it's all small things (there's more but it's all similar stuff) but i need to vent somewhere

she was only here for one semester and not involved at all
right now if there's any descisions to make the couple will decide together and if i'm unhappy i'm "outvoted", this already happened when it came to managing some finance stuff and when choosing our new roommate (the only reason the person i didn't like didn't move in was because he found a different place in the meantime. they seriously wanted to have some 30+ year old indian dude move into our student flat because he promised to cook for them. the one roommate is vegan and complains about the slightest hint of spice, she wouldn't be able to eat shit of what he'd cook anyway)

This is REALLY dumb but I'm so tired of my boyfriend wearing Spencer's Gifts or video game graphic t-shirts all the time, especially when we have lunch or dinner dates planned. He knows I like to wear skirts/dresses/even just cute blouses and curl my hair for our outings but he'll literally show up in pic related, and has done so multiple times. Writing it out feels so petty but I feel embarrassed about how we look together. I dont want to hold hands with a guy who got his wardrobe from a high schoolers' reject bin. and he actually expects me to feel turned on at the end of the day

I'm starting to understand why women wear the bare minimum of topknots and hoodies/leggings. Men will not put in any effort so why should we. He also knows how much I appreciate good clothes but wont pick out any of his nice ones just for one damn date. reeee

No. 445301

>>445294
I have a variant of that shirt lmao.
Have you talked to him about how it turns you off and makes you want to not spend time with him? Could be a wake up call for him. I do find it petty that you can't get over how he looks, but it's your relationship and looks like you really need him to either try to look better or leave? Idk, a guy that doesn't find self-grooming relevant is probably not going to start doing it bc they start to conflate grooming with "vanity" which is really dumb but they do that. Men draw the strangest lines and build their masculinity over it.

You should try dating and asian or black man, those two groups have more individuals that care about things, they'll wear nice shoes and groom their hair usually. Not sure where it comes from, but white dudes are the sloppiest dudes on average for some reason.

this is really nitpicky but

I usually do my own nails but I sometimes go to salons with a nail tech friend of mine. I was on a family vacation a few weeks ago and my mom and sisters wanted to go on a spa-day, I don't know the area she drives to the cheapest one in the area demanding that we all get our nails done, and she prepares for the manicures and her pedicure. i'm too polite/scared to walk out now and the manicure starts to immediately chip. it's been a few weeks and it's so badly chipped, i can't wait to get it off i've just busy. family bonding lmao

He knows how I feel about what he wears and how I feel about those shirts specifically (he owns several), and after I told him I think theyre tacky and immature, he wore them again and again for dates and it felt like he was just trying to be an ass at that point. He actually has worn nice things in the past (we've been together 5 years) and has asked me if I'd like him to dress up for our dates the day of. But now he's just completely given up I guess. I have graphic tshirts too but I'm not wearing them to a $50+ dinner date.

He takes a lot of care in his hair though and has pride in being good looking. So I guess the vanity line for him is a zigzag instead.

I'm not really attracted to Asian or black guys but I do see how they attempt to dress clean and with some finesse. It made me laugh that you knew he was white though, lmao.

I just sat him aside and told him I would prefer if he dressed nicer, especially when we go out on dates. He apologized because he didn't have that many nice clothes and the next time we went out he asked if we could stop somewhere and he bought nice button downs. He also started styling his hair nicely and shaving more closely.

So, I'm 100% sick and tired of my bf listening to some guy called Professor Black Truth. The "professor" is just straight up a self hating sexist delusional shithead. Same with Tariq Nasheed, which my boyfriend also listens to constantly. I'm really not into people like them and I really wish he'd stop feeding into their shit. He teases me about my disgust towards them. Saying "Oh you're not pro-black". It's annoying as all fuck. I want to talk to him about it but the last time I talked to him about something he does that upsets me, it basically went in one ear and out the other.

My mom won't just accept that we have different tastes in media and it's driving me crazy. When I was younger we used to bond by watching tv and movies together, but over the years we've stopped liking the same things and now it's a hassle to find something we both enjoy. We'll spend an hour scrolling through netflix trying to find something but it ends with us arguing because we can't agree on something to watch. We barely even look at the same genres of shows/movies, why bother forcing ourselves to watch stuff we hate?

I don't mind sitting through a bad movie if it makes her happy but I just wish she wouldn't get so upset when I tell her I don't want to watch a movie that she wants to see. It's not that I don't want to spend time with her, I just don't want to waste time on stuff I won't enjoy.

The best part is that the company literally has class action lawsuits against them for making people's hair fall out and their scalps break out in sores. But despite that she is super condescending to people who don't use this extremely expensive (it's like $50 for a 6 oz bottle) shampoo that fucks up your hair. I mean I don't use cheap drug store hair products either but even the most shitty $1 shampoo ain't gonna make your hair fall out.

i guess my contribution to the annoying thread is i hate newcomers to fandom who have grown up with the sjw crowd and leave shitty comments on things they dont like instead of just blocking and ignoring like it was done in the good ole days, witch hunting is so tiresome imo how do these kids have this much time to be leaving anon hate for shipping something they dont like, dont they have homework or something?

Yeah this, I really can't bring myself to be angry over people who are obviously socially impaired but not malicious. They're harmless and mostly minding their own business despite being cringy and autistic.

The pedophile meme is set by people who hate fujos in general and are looking for any petty reason to bring them down, or people who want to cancel others for liking a ship they don't like, like what happened with the Voltron fandom. It's despicable because actual pedos are let go and the term has lost all its meaning in the midst of this.

I already do that because I've seen how annoying fandoms can get long ago, but even my close irl friends are obnoxious about about this manga. Obviously it's only when the topic comes up or when we recommend new series or books to each other, and they're pretty well-adjusted for nerds. I haven't read it or watched it yet and maybe it's entertaining but from what I've seen it's just a typical popular shonen jump series that will be dragged on for a decade.

Solidarity, fellow bad skin anons. Nothing makes me angrier than when people think acne is a person's own fault. People with perfect skin just love to blame people for acne and try to give advice when they don't know dick about skin and don't even follow their own shitty advice.

I know a guy who has a residency at Johns Hopkins, and he says they still haven't fully figured out acne's causes yet. Basically, everybody's skin has some amount of the c. acnes bacteria on it. People with acne rashes have more of that microbe in their pores. C. acnes rearranges lipids, so when there's too much of c. acnes, the sebum's chemical properties change, which invites more dangerous bacteria into the pore and breaks down follicle walls, creating a larger resevior for dead skin, sebum, and bacteria. No one knows what causes c. acnes to overpopulate in some people but remain normal in others. What they do know is that hormones and genetics play significant roles.

I'm 20 and I have moderate acne. The only thing that's worked for me is a perscription anti-biotic cream (tretinoin). My friend uses birth control for acne, but that doesn't work for everybody, and for some women it makes the problem worse. Vitamin D supplements also seem to help some people.

I know what you mean. The people giving advice already started with nice skin. The bacon grease thing made me laugh since I only just read that that's a thing yesterday. Do people really do this?

I'm glad I'm not alone in feeling like this. Truth is I've been depressed for 12 years now and tried to commit twice so I can confirm the victim complex is something real.
Having depression gives you an excuse to feel always worse than others and superior to their sadness and pain. I used to think I was better than other people because they couldn’t understand what it feels wanting to end it all but NOBODY cares at the end and nobody will care even if I harmed myself or kept posting about how lonely I was.
Other thing that I did was to think everyone owed me something because poor me couldn’t handle life and I thought I deserved to be treated with more respect because I was sad all the time. Now that I’m writing it I feel embarrassed.
It pisses me off to watch people degrade themselves and dragging people with them in their misery because it’s not fair, it’s manipulative, people loving me doesn’t give the me right to stand by me, even if I said I wanted to die.
I’m surrounded by people who drown in their depression because they want to. The hardest part is not searching for help, the hardest part is knowing that when they’ll get better, they won’t have any excuse to justify that they don’t want to study/get a job/take some responsibilities.

agree. i hate the rampant sexism on certain boards that i consider somewhat gender neutral. i was browsing /ic/ a few months ago, and some dumb anon went on about how he can "draw the beauty of females without having the deal with their bitching and moaning". and of course their art, if the art they posted was theirs, was just a boring pretty girl. and a quite a few anons were cheering them on. just pathetic honestly.

unrelated, but most anime/manga plots are boring and any male targeted genres like shounen, seinen, ecchi have such awful female representative. women always fall into the "manic pixie dream girl" trope, and they are always sexualized to some extent. maybe i dont watch enough anime to make an opinion on this, but this is what ive seen from what ive read and watched.

I can't decide which thread has the most insufferable userbase at the moment, the Venus Angelic or Momokun one. The Venus thread is full of skinwalkers having a mental breakdown over her doing pretty much anything. Honestly, I read a few of the most recent thread to see what qualifies as "milk" and it's 100% anons just speculating, then starting to believe their own fanfiction and applying it as facts. Momokun thread does the same shit but with more obviously bitter fellow costhots and people who for some reason are hellbent on trying to "prove" that Momokun is a pedo. Because she said that edgy Kanna thing once and pretends to have a mommy fetish for her incel fans.

Fuck pinterest
I was enjoying it tremendously back when I downloaded it a few years ago, but mental disability from the creator's end likely manifested in the most retarded updates for 2 weeks time. The creatures took away the ability to swipe left to view the subsequent pin (what the actual fuck?), removed the like button, added the ability to pin through screenshots then removed that, fucked it up so it became prone to collapsing the minute I enter the main page after performing a search, replaced thumbnails with weird boxes and made it impossible to click anything to view it. I deleted the app with it's updates and downloaded the older version to retain tranquility without a disabled snotter updating that shit and ruining it, and things were going pretty smoothly until another boost of autism manifested in a banner that pretty much said, "Your app will be out of date by August 15th, please update it." I was done, but the nail on the coffin was actually opening it today, seeing it had updated to an unusable form, and deleting it for good, because it's unusability makes it a waste of space at this point. Pity, because Google images has become unusable too. Sincerely hoping that they fuck the app so badly it gets mass deleted and forgotten, just like they did with Tumblr.

It seems to be the norm sadly because when I got out to eat there's so many families and couples with their phones on the side.

Margo and Moo are cows, I feel bad for Venus. She's not problem free but she's also a product of her environment, and getting out after an entire life of an abuse with a narcissist mother who lives veraciously through her meant Venus was never going to be well adjusted

honestly I have a similar experience with my mother, and I have to live with mine right now due to "difficulties" so it's insufferable to me to think about the shit Venus has gone through while having to deal with my own projecting mentally ill mother with abusive tendencies crawling up my ass.

Full offense but what's with all these people pretending like they are professionals on south america? You discovered it literally 20 minutes ago when Bolsonaro hit the media, and just now that the amazon is burning. Nobody was talking when Brazil had its biggest economic recession in 50 years with inflation going through the roof, or when we impeached one of our presidents. Nobody was checking for Brazil when we had problems, now we're all the talk! People think they're hot shit just because they watched one breadtube video on Bolsonaro. If you're going to pretend to know about our issues, can you at least know some major events from the last 5 years? Nobody's asking you to be a historian, just be a little bit more informed for the next time you open your mouth to say dumb shit about a country you don't live in.

Late as fuck, but i had to comment on this since fujos more and more are starting to shill places that they're about a woman-positive porn community. It always makes me laugh, I've both witnessed it and experienced it. Fujoshits harassing other women in fandoms because they either didn't like yaoi, or didn't want to draw it. Fujoshis that try to convince other girls that yaoi is girlier, better, purer, etc. I prefer yuri and hetshit honestly, every interaction I've had with a fujoshi has been absolutely ass, counting fakebois too. They're the same shit, only disguised as a protected class.

You know, every time i post a het ship and i get the odd fujo in my inbox REEEEing that I'm not drawing the most popular gay ship, I'll have a giggle. I can't outdraw or outwrite fujos, but i can sure piss them off by just… being a woman that's not interested in gay erotica, it's interesting.

For some reason it really irks me when people call things overpriced just because they're not being sold for dirt cheap fast fashion prices. I see it all the fucking time with the Fjallraven Kanken backpacks, since they became trendy every smarmy contrarian calls them overpriced, but personally I don't think around $75 for a backpack is some kind of ridiculous scam, and this is coming from a poorfag cheapskate. I don't own a Kanken myself but from my understanding they're very durable, high quality bags that are meant to last years. I paid about the same for a North Face backpack years ago and it's still in great condition after heavy use, to me it was definitely worth the money, especially since a backpack is something that will always come in handy for school/work/travel.

for anyone wondering "Meme" was first originally used in 1976 in the book ''The Selfish Gene'' by Richard Dawkins as a method of explaining how cultural traits are passed on and popularized and then slowly become the norm,to be specific, a meme is the cultural equivalent of a gene - its self-propagates through conferring certain advantages on the host population, or through stimulating the host to spread it further.

memes function on a similar level to genes, in that they propogate (usually horizontally rather than vertically) through cultures (or genes in the case of genetics) to their own ends.

I think hunting is the most ethical and environmentally friendly way to get meat (and leather), but hunters who do it for "sport", boast about their kills and especially take those pics where they pose with the dead corpses while having big fucking smiles on their faces, they annoy the shit out of me. They lack empathy and respect. It's fine to enjoy the exercise, spending time outdoors, etc., I completely get it, but the actual act of killing animals should never be "fun". I'm not saying you should hold a memorial service for each and every duck and deer you shoot, but just have the basic decency not to dangle their lifeless bodies in front of a camera. Having respect for nature and animals should be a requirement for becoming a hunter.

as a child that was actually molested that, i guess, 'molested' other children in repeating that behavior, i really find this "lena dunham molested her sister!!" lie disturbing. what she did was childhood curiosity. the kisses were not molestation, and the pebbles were not sexually motivated. her sister shoved pebbles up her own vagina and lena looked at her vagina and saw it. how is that molestation? the other accusation is that she really wanted her sister's attention and trust, and to be close to her sister, so she'd bribe her for 3 second lip pecks with candy when they were both children. it's not okay, but it's not molestation. it was not sexually motivated. they were children incapable of understanding the sexual motivations behind kisses, anyways, as they were little children. it's always people who hate her for being fat and 'too feminist' (when she's hardly a feminist at all, she's just a little annoying and people hate that she sexualizes herself while being fat) who complain about her 'molesting' her sister. i find it really disturbing the way people are so quick to demonize a child when it obviously was not sexual.

I agree with you guys that it's not child molestation in the edgy shock-outrage way conservatives mean it when they bring it up (in general I think child-on-child stuff needs to be strongly differentiated from child sexual assault…)

Especially the masturbating while sharing a bed thing is just Lena having been a horny teenager who can't go one night without masturbating. If Grace was aware of it, or Lena tried to make her aware of it or was using her presence as masturbation fodder, then that would be different, but it was just something gross and inappropriate she did without anyone knowing until she blabbed grossly and inappropriately about it.

But IDK, it still is damaging and abusive in another way, even if they normalised it to themselves. Especially the pebbles thing is a really strange thing for such a young girl to do to herself. I think it is extremely unsurprising that Grace Dunham had a trauma-typical reaction of dissociating from her body and ultimately trooning out and getting a double masectomy.

I just started a new study abroad program. I am really loving the country and the other people I'm with. It's a good mix of people, except for one super annoying dude. In short, he is one of those geeky guys who loves being soooo weird and different. I'm pretty sure he has legit autism. Not in an internet meme way but actually. The big thing is that he won't stop talking about himself and thinks that every thought he has is super interesting and must be shared with the world.

>Within ten minutes of meeting him I learn about his shitty dungeon synth project and how he is obsessed with metal

>He is also obsessed with communism and "conjugating" new English words

>Bragged about being a bad roommate who plays loud music and won't clean up after himself

There is another guy in my program who is somewhat like him - a guy who is pretty leftist and also into weird music. The difference is he is actually chill so I don't want to hit him.

Art memes. Your brain is amazing at filling in the blanks. It can see a human face from 3 lines, it can read text with missing or flipped letters without noticing, and it sees something from abstract impresonisism. The idea in your brain is also 'filled in the blanks' as in its not a good idea, but a loose blurry image your brain fills in to look good. Its not that your hands are shit it's the fact your idea is also somewhat shit. Its not your hands stopping you from drawing that giant explosion its the fact you don't know how to draw an explosion outside of the abstract idea in your head.

those are actually legit tho. not even just for art but for music and design in general. it has to do with the inability that most people have when it comes to recreating things we see/hear in our minds. more from the fact that most ideas happen in a blip, though some can be almost recreated. not about whatever autistic babble you posted. you don't sound like much of an artist yourself if you don't know what that's referring to. many famous artists and musicians share the same sentiment that the idea you form in your mind sometimes doesn't resemble the outcome very well.

Yeah, i always think the person is simply stating they can't draw but in a low key way. Do thumbnails, do silhouettes, use reference, do study sketches , look how other artists solved it and do master studies, anything.

No one comes up with stuff that effortlessly anyways unless they have already studied it in depth and drawn it a low and you don't need a super clear idea at the start of a piece to take it to completion, just take the steps and figure it out.

The only valid art meme should be "stop looking at art memes and go actually draw". Its a pain in the ass when people shore more of those memes than their actual art.

No. 457745

nta but you're not capable of drawing what you don't know. What do you think the fundamentals are? You learn to break down how the world works to develop a deeper understanding of it, and the ability to build it back up yourself.

Those women were always so fucking nasty to me but peachy sweet to any male associates even though I was friendly and generally gave better customer service.

The only thing I can say in their defense is perhaps the reason why I didn't get as many male assholes is because men are less likely to shop at the stores that I've worked at and women are more likely to shop in general, especially during daytime hours if they're sahms.

I hate the fact that most studies are paywalled as a general rule, but I have a specific case of that today, and it's pissed me off like nothing else.
I found this glowing, supportive article on some study that supports claims that I personally disagree with. Since I don't want to carry psuedo-science in my mind, and news articles almost never go into the actual nitty-gritty of things (layman readers don't care about the method as much as the results), I thought "Hmm, let me see for myself".
Unsurprisingly, the whole thing was blocked off except for the abstract. Nothing about the way they did it, or how subjects were screened was publicly available unless I paid some bullshit fee. I Googled to see if other places had cited it, in hopes that they talked about the process. Nothing except two piddly articles essentially saying "wow gr8 study ppl who disagree with us BTFO".
So, I disagreed with the ideas expressed, but I couldn't personally look into how the study was conducted myself to confirm its accuracy, everywhere else was praising it without going into specifics, and I was basically stuck.
But then, I was lucky enough to do some digging and find someone who does have access to the full study rip it to shreds, confirm literally all my initial, uninformed suspicions, and essentially say "Basically, you've been lied to".
I'm annoyed that the only way around these things is to either buy the content yourself, or find someone who has to dissect it. If I hadn't found this counter to the study, this shit would've bugged me for days, and I might actually have been converted to the viewpoint of whoever pushed it out, since literally everything else was happily presenting it as reputable. Alternatively, if I had paid for it, I would've wasted my money on shitty propaganda. Either way, whoever conducted the study, and the shills who sang its praises, win.
Like, it strikes me as so fucking dishonest for a news publication to source a "study" that's completely flawed, deliberately not talk about the intricacies of that study, and proceed to champion it as a valid "takedown" of whatever viewpoint they're trying to discredit. It's insidious, manipulative, and I hate it.

Somewhat related but i notice a lot of men on 4chan wanting "cute neet gamer girl gfs" and that they can't find them because all women are whores or fakes, or something. Thing is there are a lot of neet gamer girls who are "not normie", but for 99% of the population it's often not a desirable trait in a woman. Most women in this situation would prefer to hide being heavily interested in a stereotypically male hobby, because it's looked down upon.

But to be fair, the dumbass handmaidens pushing this e-girl shit aren't helping women in this community either. Looking at you, bathwater girl. But what's with 4channers wanting "dysfunctional" or outcast women anyway? Is it a desire to fix them?

Well, there's truth to it though, it's not just ~*woke virtual signaling*~, it's about the double standards applied between genders. Teenage boys get to like all sorts of sick things and people just roll their eyes, but teenage girls liking anything even slightly dubious causes a landslide of criticism. Twilight is garbage for sure, but people acting like it's actually harmful and ~glorifying abuse~ are taking it way too far. Media directed towards teenage boys always has hot chicks forcefully jumping on a self insert's dick and it's just taken for what it is - a horny teenage fantasy, but for some reason when it's a hot dreamy dude forcing himself on a self insert girl character people freak the fuck out and scream degeneracy. I was already an adult when Twilight was a thing and I just shook my head at both the teenagers liking it and the hysteric people who thought it would ruin their chaste daughters forever. All the while having teenage boys watch all sorts of brain rotting crap and nobody ever paying any mind to it.

The best example is actually The Beatles, back when they were huge in the 60's everyone thought they were a group of untalented kids only staying afloat because of dumb teenage girls liking them for their looks, but after men started enjoying them they were considered the foundation of modern pop music.

Because they share a few opinions with radfems (being gender critical, critical of Islam and immigration) they seem to thing they can get the girl to shift all her opinions to theirs. Idk if these are the same types that want 'tradthot' gfs that want someone with similar opinions without the other trad shit or if the appeal is in changing the girl. Some of them though definitely seem to have conflated radfem with femdom though. I guess they want a tradthot gf that will sexually bully them or something.

They aren't gender critical. They hate troons but I guarantee most of them support/believe in gender roles. Anyway, back in the day when I would look at /pol/ out of curiosity so many of them would say that the only thing Islam gets right is their mistreatment of women. I mean my point is that radfems are critical of those things for completely different reasons than the 2edgy4u conservitards on 4chan.
They're fucking delulu if they think they have anything in common with women who can see right through their male bullshit.

5'2 and 133 pounds is no where near unachieveable but first of all, this woman has obvious implants, which is funny because how tf are your breast genes so shitty that you need B cup implants at 133 POUNDS.

that's sasuke/naruto, right? there's some truth to the idea that so-called "fujos" are reviled by male nerds and often attacked by women who feel an inner hatred for their own desires, claiming that to like yaoi is homophobic because it sexualizes gay men.

women often flock to m/m because they're either 1. straight and want to see two dudes going at it, which is perfectly fine?? men do the same thing with fetishizing lesbianism and no one cares, 2. they are queer and don't see female characters in series they enjoy being personality types that they feel represent them or they're attracted to. male characters get to do all the fun, actiony, heroic shit and they get to argue and have more intense chemistry with each other than female characters tend to. i'm aware that there are exceptions but like, in the case of naruto? basically all the female characters are written like absolute shit. if someone likes naruto then they're undoubtedly going to be more drawn to the male characters than the females and this is why a lot of lesbians still like m/m stuff; male characters get to express themselves more rawly than females, on the regular.

In the case of Naruto specifically, the story and characters were never amazing, shippuden was a mistake, Sasuke ruined everything, there's barely any real stake, what made the story appealing in the first place got ruined by "muh destiny" and it was obvious from volume 1 that Kishimoto was forced to add female characters in his story which is why the male characters are way more appealing and less half-assed.

what does this have to do with getting out more? this is becoming popular, anon. it is annoying to see that there's essentially a depressed """alt""" girl to egirl to sex work pipeline going on now that young 'alt' girls are seeing they can garner major followings by being both attainable and sexualizing themselves from the jump without being on straight camsites, by focusing being the 'smol titty goth gf'. they're focusing on boys and men so the ante is upped continually both in terms of edgy, gross shit, shit influenced by really awful hentai, and sexual shit that's affecting what boys and men think women and girls are okay with or should be okay with, too and they're building entire micro communities of creepy/desperate dudes around them, instead of girls just trying to get attention and recognition from primarily other girls. it's a lot easier and immediately gratifying for them to gain a following when they focus almost entirely on a male audience and sexualizing themselves, so there's no encouragement to try to just develop an enviable style or take aesthetic photos or whatever as they used to do. they used to at least want to be 'real models' with a specific style and concepts for photos or whatever, now vulnerable girls are emulating other vulnerable girls and are objectifying themselves to perverse audiences of men and boys and becoming very accessible to them at the same time.

now there's much more of a very sexual element that leads straight into sex work or sex work lite, with entire communities of just men orbiting them and further encouraging it, and a large part of it is them being attainable/reachable to these really gross men and boys by creating intimate communities where men become more obsessed and creepy? that's really not good and has a domino effect. at least before it was more about being artsy and interesting to other girls. it was almost all about appealing to other girls and influencing other girls. now it's really normalizing this fusion of sexual stuff and gory, bloody, dangerous stuff too. when bruises were romanticized on tumblr in the past, it was mostly just to other girls because it was uwu, not necessarily sexualized. now all of this shit is also being exposed to boys and men

I completely agree with this. Imo MySpace queens used their sex appeal quite a bit but the tumblr girls and early Instagrammers aimed themselves more at being quirky, relatable or otherworldly types. Tumblr girls with sexual blogs definitely existed but it wasn't the only path to success, most girls just had an army of girls. Molly soda, Nicole D or even luna slater pushed their aesthetic life to other girls or lovers of the aesthetic instead of creating mostly sexual content for guys, with the occasional lewd.
I don't know how the change happened. Maybe it's all connected to the pornification of cosplay?

Movie trailers are so fucking bad these days. They're literally all the same, with the exact same music, text, character voice-over stuff, etc. And there's no subtly or holding back, they have to show everything that happens in the movie and it completely ruins the surprise element of going to a see a film and not memorising all the scenes that were in the trailer. They're supposed to be minimal, short but effective. Also, where the hell did this obsession with trailers come from anyway?

It seems like it's rarer for comedy movies to not have a significant amount of improv-style stuff, as opposed to TV where it's mostly written jokes. It's a shame because 90% of the time, something written will be better. Even most good improvised scenes could be fixed up and re-shot. They probably don't do that in part because they like the "energy" of how it was performed the first time. But it's always obvious when actors are fumbling for funny things to say. Most improvised lines end up being too random or just pop culture references anyway.

I think Homestuck really popularized it because there was a character named Tavros that has a typing quirk that uses inverted capitals and commas for periods (jUST LIKE THIS,,,) and he's known for being meek.

>boring and bland
That's fair actually lol, it's a very watered-down ES game but it's also very comfy. I think playing it for the first time is just a very modern-nostalgic and "magical" thing for many people. It's def not niche but imo, to complete Skyrim takes a lot more dedication than just bingeing a show on Netflix. I'm trying not to sound like a weird "Normies reeee" person cuz I also binge shit on Netflix but I hope my point makes some sense. Oblivion was the superior ES game anyways but people seem to never know about it.

Its even worse with videogames and Dark souls.

Any videogame that is hard is "The dark souls of *insert genre". Apparently Dark Souls was the first and only hard game ever made. I've seen a ton of comparisons with the aesthetic and themes too, but dark fantasy have been a thing since forever, is way older than videogames and dark souls itselfs rips off so much from Berserk is crazy. Its just a bad habit from pop culture, the way people describe stuff is always "is just like X but with Y" so everything becomes a reference to another thing thats popular and there is no escaping it, even when its not intended people will process it like that.

those shows are definitely bs but fun to watch. semi related but my dad used to be a broker and there are some real crazies searching for houses. they want a 3000 sq ft 3/3 by the beach for $120,000. they don't want to put down $120,000 and finance, no, they want an expensive property for $120,000 and think all sellers will forgo like, $200,000 just because they "have cash" and can avoid the approvals and waiting financing. and they're always like "BUT I HAVE CASH", yeah, dude, so many people here are actually rich and have cash. no one is going to just give you a $700,000 property just because you have $120,000 in cash. then they complain about the person helping them find a home

theyll see houses that are well under market value and that assess so much higher, that are nice, and if they can't get "their deal", that is, if they can't get the seller (the bank, in this case) to give it to them for much, much less than that, even, they get indignant and shitty to my parent and the banks, etc. like they can pull rank on multinational banks. they'll try to tell banks "no one will ever buy this property" (meanwhile, they get offers like crazy and they'll find another buyer immediately that'll take on liens, will waive inspections, etc).

cant they just transition slowly,without fucking up their health,see if they can manage it and THEN say it?they want the "animal loving vegan who cares about the enviroment" label,while they half-ass it and their activism is mostly from instagram posts

Books and text get this across way better and manage to be funny in a more implicit way, often because of things like writing style.
There's some youtube channels that put out pretty hilarious videos but ones that don't feel forced are hard to find as well. I'm sick of the whole "a fast breath out the nose every ten minutes is enough for me to keep watching" mentality that's apparently common now.

i've also had best friends who tell me they're in love with me, and in turn our friendship crumbles because i don't feel the same, and i never will.

I don't even know where you farmers get that telling stories about men harassing us is a attractive/unattractive/humblebragging issue, cause in my experience that shit has happened to all sorts of women regardless of how they look.
Lots of women I've seen talk about this have been in a situation where men had the power dynamic over them (re: working a customer service role and the male being the customer) and got harassed as a result. It didn't really matter what they looked like because men enjoy the novelty of making a woman who cannot flee give them attention.
Seen this happen in friend circles too. It doesn't take a humblebragging super attractive woman nor a hideous cavewoman to find out her male friends just want to pork her. Or want to use her to cheat on their own girlfriends.
Plus it stands to reason, that the more you've been around males in your life the higher the odds that you've had an unpleasant experience with them.

Get some perspective people.

because women congratulate me. they tell me to take it as a compliment. even though i say that kind of male attention makes me feel uncomfortable, they don't see it the same way. not every woman thinks this way ofc, but most people in my life seem to have this mindset.

like, i frequented an art museum this summer and one of the security guards hit on me by telling me he recognised me. this made me feel kinda creeped out and not want to return to the museum in case i ran into him again. when i told my friend this, she asked if he was handsome, said i should feel flattered and didn't understand why i was making it a big deal.

Fuuuuuu, why are some people like this? Tbh this type of clients are kinda rare, but when one is like this it grinds my teeth. If you are a in the client position never do this, only two things can happen if you push: either the artist gets annoyed and cancels or the artist delivers earlier than agreed but is going to be some rushed bullshit done halfheartedly just to get rid of your nagging ass. I am still deciding which one of the two is gonna be this time because i can't deal with an entitled narc breathing on my neck every day for the rest of the week. In my experience just canceling is preferable because if a client is like this at the start even if you bend over and do your best work and deliver super early they will probably still give you shit afterwards and try to pull a fast one on you, i know because i used to be such a pushover when i started out and i got burned so many times that now i have a siren blasting in my mind when stuff like this happens.

I have a couple on my social media who always acts like they're so grown up and more mature than literally anyone else who ever does a thing ever, yet currently they are online begging randoms to go pick them up tissues and cough drops from the store in the late am when everyone's sleeping because they claim too sick and cannot move to go to the store themselves. They live 5 minutes from a store. The woman can't drive so it makes sense, but the guy certainly can.
If they're that desperately ill they need a fucking ambulance ride to a hospital.
They have a roommate but must have burned their bridge so as to not be able to ask him or for him to automatically say no.


They are some of the worst grifters I know. It won't be just tissues and cough drops, they'll tack on a few bunch of other 'little things' to their order when the person responds, and expect the person to pick up the tab if they're a good, non money hungry friend–which whoever already is for going to the store for a couple of adult babies at 2am.
And if that same person asks them for a favor later? They always got an excuse as to why they aren't available to do anything, like they're such busyyyyy adults they just don't have the time but woulddddd if they couldddddd. This is why they tend to befriend people with low self-esteem (me) but they especially target the "yes men" who can be used as repeat suckers who think they have to go above and beyond to prove they're a good friend to have.
At least I don't fall for that shit.

The biggest cherry is that not too long ago they were lambasting their roommate on social media for calling out sick from work and acting like one's gotta pull themselves up by their bootstraps and just go. Which is esp funny coming from the woman because this is her first time working in two years and only got the job because of her bf pulling strings at his job to get her it. Yet here they are, both taking a day off from work at the same time from what sounds like a common cold that everyone gets during seasonal change.
They got mad because their supervisors didn't give a shit about their wellbeing because they told them they needed them back for work tomorrow. Lmao, welcome to the workforce motherfuckers.

We need to being back calling things "controversial" instead of "problematic". Just because there is discourse about a particular topic, that doesn't make it automatically "problematic". At that point you're just assuming that the controversial elements of the topic are automatically wrong or bad, instead of something that might be just a case of culture shock, for example.

No. 464919

this is slightly off topic but I honestly hate buzzwords like problematic and the like because they're so easy to overuse and misuse and most of the time i'm just gonna get the impression that the speaker is lazy and just spouting off shit they read from other people. This goes for a lot of words, idk it just annoys me. I might sound like a snob lol but I just wish people would talk better and get their thoughts across clearer and not have to resort to easy catch-all words, like it's not hard.

Leading into that - it irritates me when you can tell someone is parroting something they heard another person say or stuff they read off the internet. Because it not only controls your wording but your opinions and thought process too. My sister does this all the time and it drives me nuts, it's like she automatically has to get approval from others on topics and never speaks/thinks for herself.

Somehow a literal 15-year-old dressing too colourful and acting a bit too over the top is considered a crime worthy of entire twitter and youtube making fun of her. You have grown ass men sitting there, making videos about why she's bad and if she reacts she's a pressed bitch with no sense of humor.
The thing I hate the most about it are the "Jojo Siwa is taller than [male name]"-memes. So what? Would her being short change anything? Must she act like an adult just because she's taller than your sorry ass?

I assigned a quiz today that they refused to stop complaining over, even though i basically gave the answers the day before in discussion. So fucking annoying.

I went to an "alternative" school (quaker school) k-8 before I went to a normal, private prep school for high school. at quaker school we didn't have typical homework, grades, etc. (these people on reddit's dream) and as a result I struggled a lot my freshman and even sophomore years of high school to keep up with average homework tasks, I did better in subjects like writing, social studies etc. but struggled really hard with math and science. I think with math and science especially practicing through homework is a necessity. my quaker school had a lot of the ideas thrown around for normal schools - unique/non classroom activities (shit like camping, hiking, etc. which I hated), lenient with missing school (ended up with me missing at least one day a week to avoid said unique activities, parents would take me on vacation for weeks at a time), non-traditional hours (started at 9, let out at 2:45 so basically no time at school), no grades or homework (never tried at all except in writing and social studies which were the only subjects I liked), forced to communicate our feelings (I now hate talking about myself), very small class size (no privacy whatsoever). as a contrast my high school was probably more difficult than most and I thrived after my freshman year, college is a breeze bc I was very well prepared.

I think some people do better with more structure and some with less structure. but it's hard to know what would work for a kid and nearly impossible to implement multiple different learning styles that work for students at a larger scale (public schools). Honestly sometimes I think we should have more programs for high schoolers who don't give a shit to just get a certification to be a dental hygienist or mechanic or something. some people will just never care about school.

Try to ask them directly about it, and they start moaning about how it’s a private issue and that everyone who knows what happened knows. But then either they or one of their close friends comes into the threads, makes some random remark about how “Psychara did xxxx”, as though a couple of days ago someone else wasn’t saying the girl did something else to piss of Mai or Moth.

You do realise that correct grammar is important in text so that it isn’t tiring to read and it flows like spoken language does, right?

That’s why…. it’s so awful… to read posts… written like this… because you inherently read them slowly…. because it reads like gaps… or so some people write like this and it’s exhausting to read because there’s no commas or like full stops so you don’t get to pause at any point and take a breather and it just keeps going and going and even though you don’t read it aloud you still feel out of breath and exhausted because written text is still treated like spoken language so it’s important to use proper grammar to let the reader know what tone everything is being spoken in. I MEAN, IF GRAMMAR DIDNT ACTUALLY MATTER THEN WHY DOES IT SEEM LIKE IM YELLING JUST BY WRITING EVERYTHING IN ALL CAPITALS?

Just because you don’t see the value in proper grammar doesn’t mean it isn’t important. It’s ironic how people are now writing more than ever but written language is so bastardised.

you guys are the ones that keep posting angrily about it, like people aren't allowed to dislike it bc you use them. grammar and language naturally evolves. people who are married to "proper grammar" and "technically correct" words like "whilst" or "thrice" are strange and come off as onision-tier pests that look for any opportunity, including convos about paper towels, to try to assert authority or knowledgeability. there's a reason why no one understands middle english even though it's also perfectly correct. grammatical rules are completely arbitrary anyways, so it's really weird that people are so married to "correct grammar" like there's a forever unchanging basis behind it, like all languages share the same grammatical rules or like it doesn't also change over time. it wasn't something that was discovered. the fact is that things fall out of use and it becomes clunky and uncommon to use them casually as a result.

sure, grammar is important, but not universal and unchanging, but that's how people act. there's a big difference. people who make mention of "proper grammar" (like the anons above) are usually ones complaining about it in a forum that is inappropriate for the complaint, like youtube comments or texts. semicolons are not a necessity. they are literally falling out of use, which makes using them casually very odd, and people who talk about grammar like it's a natural science are nitpicky for the sake of feeling superior

She admits that the waitress who served her is around 20, but proceeds to call her a "30 year old baby" in the voiceover, anyway, just to add some spice. The waitress's awful faux pas to bring this insult on herself? Repeating the stock phrases given to her by management, serving food/drinks and just doing her work. What a crime.

>"uhh they all sound like chipmunks on helium haha infantile japanese women amiritte"

>"uhhh they're all dressed like 12 year olds" (Just what kind of pizzagate-tier gatherings have you been frequenting to see maid costumes and immediately think of 12 year olds, Sue? For fuck's sake)
>"omg guys i've never been so uncomfortable in my life" (Who asked you to go? You knew exactly what you were getting into, and there's a shitload of other things you can report on in Japan, but you chose this?)
And like, her obvious irritation at everything hyper-feminine and girly is so grating. Not to sound like a tradthot, but she's definitely framing this as if she's just some enlightened, liberated western feminist with no tolerance for gender roles, and I'm just not buying it. You can tell a large chunk of it is personal bitterness, and maybe a tinge of internalized misogyny. She absolutely reeks of that whole bullshit idea that doing everything you can to resemble and behave like a man is true freedom.
She was probably that girl in school who made a huge fucking show of hating the color pink and was constantly shitting on other girls who wore skirts, enjoyed pop music and actually liked pink because it totally made them vapid and unintelligent or something. Sorry, it is not every liberated woman's dream to cosplay as a 48 year old frumpy closeted gay man from Illinois 24/7. That is not peak performance for all women.

At the very end, she cobbles together the typical "Japanese men are scared of real relationships and are also misogynistic so they go to these places instead of actually dating" to pass for critical thinking. I mean, that's obviously true, but holy shit, who doesn't know that already?
Somewhere in the middle, she does the typical "OMG they're serving and entertaining the men, it's just like the geisha from history!!". This is not intelligent or decent analysis. You literally just plagiarized every other western news think piece on maid cafes. You jumped on the "Maid cafes are so odd and alien to us westerners!!" bandwagon 5 years later than everyone else, and you think being a rude piece of shit will cover up the fact that you have absolutely nothing substantial to say, and probably haven't for a while now.

Like, all the hand-wringing and bitchiness, and you couldn't even come up with any original thoughts? No truly eye-opening criticism about the culture? No food for thought at all? I can't believe this lazy, dishwater take is what passes for news these days. You literally just went there to talk shit. Fuck off back to eating greasy fry-ups at your local fish and chip shop owned by some oily football fanatic with a wife he neglects and a son who may or may not have fetal alcohol syndrome. That's obviously where you feel most at home, and no one begged you to travel. If you're out of ideas, stay home and think of something. Don't deliver this bullshit and call it a day.

Those young girls are just doing their jobs and she's being so rude to them. Meanwhile, she has no problem interviewing the men and treating them with at least neutral politeness. Why couldn't she have reached out to Japanese feminists and had them speak on the topic of maid cafes for some insight on someone brought up in the culture, rather than some rude british asshole making assumptions.

This is like going to Disneyland and being mad at the women playing Cinderella or Snow White for being damsels in distress. They're acting! They're doing their job!

I'm a lesbian and a feminist too and that's exactly why I don't understand why she would be such a bitch to the girls working there. As someone who supposedly has respect for women, she's being ultra condescending and unnecessarily mean to the girls who are just doing their waitressing job.

I had a friend who worked in one of Tokyo's otaku districts (not maid cafe but performing), she was interviewed for a western news outlet and the journalist basically described her as a mindless sex victim who's only meant to sell sex to middle-aged men gawking at young girls. You could imagine how hurt she was because she really enjoyed what she did and it wasn't even sexual in any way. The way I see it is that people have this retarded mix of a savior complex and the feeling of superiority when it comes to women in Japan, especially when they're treating a grown ass woman working as a dress-up waitress like she was a starving 12-year old hooker in the Philippines. Especially Americans seem to have a knack for treating anything "strange" as inherently sexual and decipher it as some fucked up fetish.

As someone who was molested, I really hate how loosely the internet uses the word "pedophile" these days. I think it's ridiculous that drawing shipping of fictional teenagers from anime makes you a pedophile.

A pedophile is a person who creeps on and molests real kids. Calling random fujoshis on the internet pedophiles for drawing Naruto or whatever without a shirt seems like a great way to rob the label of its seriousness. Sexualizing teenage anime characters is certainly weird and gross, but it does not deserve to share a label with the rape and sexual abuse of children.

But ANON!!! there are totes studies showing how cild prn makes every 20something meek nerdy woman an IRL pdphile because they like shipping 16 year old vaguely aged cartoon characters and drew them shirtless or aged up having sex!!! FICTION AFFECTS REAL LIFE YOU FUCKING PDOSYMPTHZER I HOPE YOU DIE IN A FIRE YOU SICK FUCK I WANT TO STAB U IN THE THROAT U FUCKING PSYCHOPATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway it's a groomer's paradise out there, when kids are being taught that you can spot a pedo just by looking at their interests they learn to ignore other red flags a seemingly normal person would exhibit. No predator ever walked up to a minor and said "look, I love kiddie porn and I want to rape and abuse you". They're people who gain your trust by manipulative methods and make it hard for you to refuse. Calling someone a pedo because they shipped underage shounen characters in a setting where age really doesn't matter because everyone is under 18 and not really exhibiting childlike appearance or behavior is ludicrous and straight out insulting to the victims of actual child sex abuse.

It's a song that's been played over and over but really, a lot of people use fiction to handle a trauma to cope with it in an environment they can control, and nobody really owes an explanation to some stranger on the internet about their personal history. I've been in abusive relationships which is why I find them fascinating in fiction, to be able to observe something I went through from a 3rd person's perspective. It helps me reflect on what happened and cope with my experiences. But of course due to the current extra woke discourse this can only mean that I have a fetish for abuse and should be banished for predatory behavior.

Pedophile has always refered to the sexual attraction not the act, it's like saying you can't be gay or have a certain fetish or whatever if you're a virgin who hasn't done it for real. If you get turned on by fantasies of pre-pubescent children you're a pedo sorry.

By that logic, "pedophile" doesn't apply because the characters are neither pre-pubescent nor people. They're drawings of teenagers.

>>466701
This, too. Is someone a pedophile for still liking a teenage character they liked when they were a teenager? People grow up, characters don't.

I should also note that I see a lot of "pedo11!1!" screeching directed at women who draw shipping of teenage shounen protagonists. Come the fuck on. How is that in any way comparable to neckbeards who draw POV porn of prepubescent lolis? I think art can definitely be a gateway drug to actual pedophilia, but that's only when the characters are clearly portrayed as prepubescent children, and when the person consuming it is pornsick to the point of allowing porn to distort their sexuality.

It really makes me mad that we're blaming art for what is ultimately the fucked up decision of the individual. A man doesn't rape a child because he looked at anime porn, he rapes a child because he made a conscious decision to, and he probably would have done it regardless of what porn he looked at. I'm sick of men blaming their horrid behaviors on everything but themselves. It's a lot like the "violence in video games causes shootings" myth. Shootings are caused by guns and extremism. Child rape is caused by evil people who want to hurt and control people weaker than them. That's all there is to it.

Preach. I thought we grew out of this "____ causes violence/rape" stuff in the 90's but now it's made a comeback full force due to the current purity culture. All child rapists aren't even pedophiles per se, they get a kick out of abusing people weaker than themselves be it a woman, man or a child. I read a story written by a mother who had a son who was taken in by the extremist alt-right people and it was due to him having bitterness and resentment towards authority figures caused by bad experiences and having his feelings neglected, not because he played video games. Fucking Catcher in the Rye, a book super tame by today's standards, was credited to inspire murders decades ago. People are always looking at fiction to blame because it's an easy answer to a complex societal issue they necessarily don't have a lot of control over.

possibly late, but the whole "anti" thing online today seriously irritates and confuses me. i mean, back in the early 00s, people had "bad & unhealthy" pairings across the board & i assure you nobody gave a shit because we all knew they were just cartoons, we weren't to do these things irl, etc.

like. speaking as someone that grew up shipping things with large age-gaps (sebaciel, naruto x kakashi, roxas x axel) and other so-called "problematic" subjects (i had a LOT of brother x sister & other incest ships back then), i'm doing pretty fucking well? it hasn't had, and it didn't have any effect on what i enjoyed irl, and it never will. it's just not real, i don't get why people aren't understanding.

hell if anything i'd say seeing those minor x adult pairings actually helped me avoid a real nasty thing with a super senior my freshman year of uni (but that's a whole 'nother story)

i dunno. i'm hoping it ends within the next few years. & that people realize there's so much more to be angry at than a mid-late twenties lady wanting to see the boku no hero characters kiss.

and this may sound semi-unrelated but i'm 20, and seeing people my age (or even like, a year or two above) refer to women that're like 26 at most as "hags" is so jarring. conversely seeing people that're 19 calling themselves "baby". why do they have such a weird grasp on age

This subject is tricky. Back then the internet was only really used by nerds and older tech people. Now you can't avoid it so any one can gain access. The grooming techniques from pedos has gotten really sophisticated due to them being able to connect better. Some pedos actually use ship art to convince kids that this kind of relationship is ok and normal. Shota and Lolicon manga is often used.

It literally makes me speechless to see people go above and beyond with their hysteric rage against someone drawing a 17-year old, very adult looking male video game character shirtless. Like do these people actually believe this borderline psychotic stuff they're saying or are they just doing it for melodrama? Like do they ever just stop for a moment and listen to themselves spewing this absolutely bonkers stuff about the human rights of a Naruto character?

I fail to see how shipping characters means you want to fuck them, unless you're drawing/looking at the characters having sex.

That said, some ships are pretty gross. I always thought Hiei and Mukuro seemed pedophilic, because Hiei is 100 and that's equivalent to like 13 in demon years, and Mukuro is clearly an adult woman who is at least 500.

But if the ship consists of two teenagers the same age and the art isn't literal porn, I think it's fine. Especially if the ship is canon. Yusuke and Keiko are 14, and the dude who wrote/created them was in his late thirties at the time. Is he a pedophile, too? Are adults not allowed to write stories about teenagers being in relationships with each other, despite that being a real thing that happens normally in real life?

Kids often fall in love in Ghibli films. Is Miyazaki a pedophile, then?

I'm telling you guys: throwing "pedophile" around this loosely really lessens the impact of the label and therefore the crime.

I despise pedos with a passion but all it takes is a moment of rational thought to be like 'yeah, shipping Haikyuu characters is probably not an indication that someone is attracted to or preying on either teenagers or children irl'.

Anime characters who are neither actual children nor middle age pretty much all look the same, they have no real, physical markers of age in their depiction. By nature most anime series focus on high school and it's pretty inevitable most popular characters will be that age, but if they were older they would look and act exactly the same.

Despite being short Hiei has the body of a fucking 30 year old and a face you literally can't tell an age from. This applies to like every character in Yu Yu hakusho, watching it I constantly forgot they were supposed to be like 15 because they all look and behave like goddamn adults being strong, rational and able to take on a fucking army of helldemons, sacrifice themselves and whatever. As for Mukuro, I thought SHE was the one who was more of a teenager. This just goes on to tell you how vague and up for personal interpretation cartoon characters can be.

Japan is obsessed with youth (iirc it's a Shinto thing) and I'm pretty sure it's meant to make the reader feel younger because they're projecting into the 13-15 year old characters. You're not supposed to really read them as actual 12-year olds, you're supposed to see yourself familiarizing with these young people. I remember when I was like 12-13 myself and reading some manga I was baffled at how adult all the "13-year olds" looked but like I said it's related to some cultural difference I'm not knowledgeable enough to explain in a thorough sense.

I find that more often than not these people hop on the MAP train but say that anime = pedo shit. It's really spergy and delusional to think that Japan is pedophilia central because of drawings; and not caring that the UN's troops has been caught multiple times running child prostitution rings. It's some really delusional zoomer/delusional boomer shit to think that drawings makes people act out. If you think drawings would make you act out in such a way, maybe you should be fucking locked up then.

>>466906
I agree with you anon. But some people are delusional too, remember that shit-brained fujo who got mad at the Boku no Hero mangaka for drawing his female characters in bikinis? Guess what was in her profile, oh wait. If you're going to act high and mighty about drawings, better make sure your high horse isn't made of fucking glass.

>>466919
Kek but literally this. I never see the same argument used for people who draw gorey images, or enjoy true crime or things like that. Drawing someone getting killed won't make you a murderer, but drawing a young looking character makes you a pedo, lmfao. Literally braindead. Do videogames make people violent too? I should be a serial killer by now.

They are neotenous, but they still don't look like actual children. They don't look like any real people, their faces are usually androgynous, ageless, and raceless. The art is so simplified and lacking in detail that their audience has to project their own idea of what a human looks like on them. I don't think it's safe to assume that projection will be a child.

Anyway I don't really think it needs deep analysis in the end, we all know who the pedos and scumbags of the world are, and who actually ends up molesting children or committing statutory rape. It's men, almost always, not nerdy girls with anime husbandos and ships.

wat

look, i know you guys feel victimized by people saying women are pedos for having an emotional connection to anime boys, and you're right to feel victimized bc people come down 100x as hard on women for shit men do way worse, but it's very different when it comes to women and men, generally. you don't have to wholesale disregard the fact that the art style is pedophilic just bc you guys are into it. defend fujos or whatever, idc, but let's not pretend hyperneotenous art styles aren't indicative of male creepiness. female weebs with emotional connections to teenage characters they were into as teens is nothing like how men see anime girls and anime women. and yes, the men into this shit absofuckinglutely have pedophilic tendencies. they're the same ones rationalizing the idea of sleeping with 14 yos bc its peak fertility. let us not conflate the issues. female sexuality is typically way less fucked, but the hyperneotenous art style in anime is for sure problematic and is at the least, mildly pedophilic. you guys are obviously into this shit so you're going out on a limb to excuse this, but it's not necessary because it's nowhere near the same.

the men into anime girls have pedophilic tendencies like 90% of the time. that's not a fluke. i can't imagine being attracted, personally, to a teenage character because it just isn't something i can relate to, but i think this attraction that females have to them is mostly benign, and the women that like these characters don't typically end up actually displaying pedophilic tendencies. the same can't be said for men. there's a reason why we see that men can't separate porn from reality, and the same rule applies for anime. it has an effect on them for sure, and female anime characters, facially, look the same age all across the board: like children.

The inconvenient truth is that many men do end up becoming pedophiles by breaking their sexuality with too much porn, discovering lolicon or IRL "teen porn", and then progressing to sexualizing actual children when that gets boring. No amount of platitudes about it being just drawings or whatever can change that. If an important aspect of your fantasies is your partner being significantly younger than yourself, then there's a problem, sorry. I'm gonna go ahead and (re)post the research I've found on this specific topic.

From Pornland by Gail Dines:
>“Some of the worst stories I hear are from men who have become so desensitized that they have started using harder porn and end up masturbating to images that had previously disgusted them. Many of these men are deeply ashamed and frightened as they don’t know where all this will end. Phil told me, “Sometimes I can’t believe the porn I like. I feel like a freak,” and Anthony sees it as a “slippery slope I never thought I would slide down. I never thought of myself as a guy who would like the really hard-core porn, but that’s what’s happened to me.” Some speak of moving toward more violent images while others have become increasingly interested in bondage and even child porn. Because accessing child porn is illegal, many of the students said that they had not actively gone searching for it but had accidentally come across it while surfing porn sites. This had piqued their interest, although most of the men I spoke to are very disturbed by their sexual interest in these pictures.”

>“Students are not the only group becoming bored by and desensitized to porn images of adult women. In interviews I did with seven incarcerated sex offenders, aged from their late thirties to early sixties, all said that the quality and quantity of their porn use changed drastically after the introduction of the Internet. Prior to the Internet, they would regularly use pornography (of adult women) but after the introduction of the Internet, they began to use it compulsively, some of them even losing their jobs because of it. For this group of men, the regular gonzo pornography became boring, and they moved into more violent, fetishistic pornography, often that which looked like overt torture. When this also started to become boring, most of the men moved into child pornography. Some accidentally came across child porn while surfing porn sites, and others sought it out to masturbate to something other than the usual porn. The average length of time between downloading the first child porn and sexually assaulting a child was one year. Most men told me that before becoming addicted to Internet porn, they had not been sexually interested in children."


Additionally,
>Clarence A. Johnson once enjoyed the adult pornography sites he viewed on the Web.

>But after a while, the thrill was gone.


>So Johnson started clicking on some of the advertisements that popped up on his computer screen above the naked men and women he was staring at.


>He was seeing something new — young teenagers, and even young children, posing in the nude, having sex with each other or being molested by adults. At first, the 49-year-old Batavia man was appalled. But once the shock wore off, Johnson couldn’t get enough. Like thousands of other men throughout the United States, he was hooked.


>“It was a drive, something like a fix,” he said. “I needed more, and if I didn’t get it, I felt empty.”


>“I’ve seen men from many different walks of life,” said David G. Heffler, a Lockport psychotherapist who is appointed by the courts to counsel child pornography offenders.


>The men, Heffler said, usually fall into two categories. One group is the hard-core pedophiles and molesters, who use child pornography to indulge their fantasies.


>A U.S. Postal Service study in the mid-1990s found 35 percent of men who view child pornography also molested children. A more recent study by the federal Bureau of Prisons found 80 percent acknowledged molesting children, even if never charged with the crime.


>The second group Heffler identified are men — such as Johnson — who start looking at adult pornography but then “slide down a slippery slope” toward child pornography.


>“Many men told me they started out looking at adult porn and never intended to look at children,” Heffler said. “But after looking at adult porn for a long time, they get bored. They want to try something different. They start looking at children. Then, they can’t get enough of it.”

From what I've seen, some branch off into things like bestiality, scat, vomit, insects, animal torture/crushing, physical deformity, etc. You also get crossovers and mixes, like men with a thing for animal feces specifically, men who like to watch underage girls vomit or eat insects, etc. There's almost infinite ways to be a disgusting freak.
The take-away is that pornography (and pornography addiction) is about thrill, primarily, not just sex. Men who get fixated on the "high" of that thrill have their interests get progressively more niche and fucked up over time as their usual go-to content quits giving them the buzz they're after. Pedophilia is definitely not some line they won't cross. Point blank, there are no lines or real limits for them.

Excuse my autism, but he's Yukina's twin. Ice Maidens give birth asexually when they come of age at 100 years old. Combine this with Yukina's appearance and it's obvious she's prepubescent. Since Hiei is literally the exact same age as her, that would also make him prepubescent. Therefor, whatever "relationship" he would have with Mukuro would clearly be statutory rape.

The anime tried to obfuscate this by drawing him muscular and giving him an adult voice actor, but the text still indicates that he's a kid. The manga (pic related) drew him much more appropriately for his age.

Mukuro "acting" like a teenager doesn't mean dick. She's at least five times his age.

I'm not like other autists online, though– I'm not going to call you a pedophile for shipping it. It's fiction, and fiction that distorts physical traits and age at that. But it's certainly gross and weird, and if YYH aired today, people would definitely be upset by all the ship-teasing with a literal child and an adult woman.

>>466983
By this logic, all porn is a "gateway drug" to pedophilia. It literally says in your citation that these people started with vanilla porn. This is more an issue of pornsickness/overexposure than of anime fanart.

Like I said before, these people are destined to rape kids regardless of what porn they look at. By your own admission, it doesn't matter what they started with, they all raped children in the end. We should not be restricting law abiding citizens' free speech because of a handful of pornsick criminals.

Assuming demons have a concept for statutory rape, and again, this is stupid and you’re being pedantic over a fictional race from a fictional anime. And Ice Maidens reproduce every 100 years but they can also reproduce sexually with a male assumingly at any time, which is how Hiei and Yukina were born in the first place. Considering ice maidens are only female and somehow Hiei was born with fire powers and as a male, it can be assumed his father was a different species.

If that’s the case would Kuwabara be a pedo for liking Yukina?

He's 14, dumbass. He's a kid, too. The biological age difference there is negligible.

I specifically said people who ship it aren't pedophiles, but go off I guess. I didn't "invent" reasons for it being fucked up. It is fucked up. You can obviously still ship it, but it doesn't hurt to be aware of the problems.

Imagine if the genders were reversed. What if it was Yukina who was dating an adult demon five times her age? You'd look like a fucking asshole for defending it. Double standards like this are why female child rapists get lighter sentences.

Obviously male rapists and female targets are way more common and the more pressing issue. But it doesn't mean we should reinforce the cultural idea that male children who get raped by adult women weren't victimized.

Art isn't pedophilia. People can draw whatever they want. But art, especially popular art, can reinforce and be indicative of cultural attitudes. This is why it's important to view things with a critical lens, especially if you are a content creator yourself. It helps prevent those sort of mistakes from persisting. YYH is a good anime, and Mukuro and Hiei are good characters. Questioning these things doesn't mean I hold the show or the manga in lower esteem.

…….i wouldn’t care because they’re demons and not human and also not real. also, is anyone calling kagome and inuyasha pedophillia? they’re still an incredibly popular and well loved ship. twilight was deemed problematic but no one cared that Edward was nearly 100 years old and Bella was a teenager. like oh my god you say it’s fine to ship whatever and then you go on and say attitudes like mine towards FICTIONAL NON HUMAN CHATACTERS are why rapists don’t get convicted?

>He's 14, dumbass. He's a kid, too. The biological age difference there is negligible.


But Yukina could be several decades old. And again, Hiei isn’t an ice maiden so why would ice maiden rules of age and puberty apply to him?

It's not at all unheard of and I've met people like that personally, this is the dumbest take I've seen. Like every serial killer ever gets sexual pleasure out of what they do, that's why so many of them use choking as their preferred method.

Men have ultra-young dating preferences in general, it's not just evil anime hypnotizing people into pedophilia. Studies show this is not only because of the teenage girls' bodies, but also because they're insecure and easy to control. The greasiest nerds slobbering over their 9000 year old loli dragon body pillow are attracted to her because being the absolute omega tier of men they need a literal child to feel superior over.

>>467046
NTAYRT but just stop it already, the anime and the manga showed both Yukina and Hiei being actual children in flashbacks so they're obviously not supposed to be "prepubescent" anymore. When you actually have to dig up lore behind 20 wiki links to make something "pedophilic" I think it's a good indicator that there's nothing to it. You can say what you want about their relationship otherwise but pedophilic? That's a big old reach. I've read both the manga and seen the anime and never even thought that they would be different ages because they both behave on the same level of maturity, don't have canonical ages and physically could just as well be 17 or 25, I'd buy both.

Japan Airlines is rolling out a seat map that will display seats next to parents with babies that have been booked with a baby icon. It's for people who don't want to select seats near them.
This has angered mombies. I saw one comment on social media about how this is discrimination. Other bitter moms cursed that they hope people get placed next to their screeching kids anyway.
Then we have this CNN opinion piece
>https://www.cnn.com/travel/article/parent-responds-japan-airlines-baby-map/index.html

Why are parents so hurt that other people don't like their children as much as they do?
The seat icons aren't discriminatory because it's not herding all the parents with babies onto a certain section of the plane. It's just giving people the power to not sit next to parents with babies if they don't want to. OR, maybe people who like babies or fellow parents with babies want to know where other parents with babies are on the plane.
So what if no one wants to sit next to their baby? Heaven forbid if these parents with babies have an ~empty seat~ next to them on an international flight, as if that's such a terrible thing when there's people in the world that pay an extra seat ticket in order to have exactly that extra space.
And what's extra funny about some of these arguments, is that some of them are using the slippery slope argument like
>"What's next? Showing icons for people who drink too much, clip their toenails, and snore?!"
And I just find it funny because their unconscious implication is that they know their baby's screams are just as gross and obnoxious as annoying drunkards and snorers. Lmao. It's like, why yes, I'm sure people would love icons for that too but the reality is people would probably opt for icons to get empty seats next to them lmao.

How does this work against the favor of anyone? It's such a non-issue!
I personally hope airlines adopt this, and also roll out icons for "emotional support animals" too.

I think posting shit like that on social media is the biggest thing that separates the issue: A harmless prank that a kid might laugh at, versus the parent wanting to show the public how they degrade and humiliate their kid hoping others will find the spectacle funny for internet points.
It's like knowing that an embarrassing childhood photo of myself exists somewhere in a family album on a dusty shelf, versus my parents trying to socially capitalize on my embarrassment by publishing that photo on the internet for all to see.

That's why if I have children I'm going to be very careful about posting photos of them on the internet. It's not fair to have their life plastered all over the place before they can even consent.

Ignoring most of the pedo talk sperging that followed and just replying to you, I can say that I like to write/read ships because for whatever reason, writing and reading stories about people in love makes me happy. Ones that are sad and difficult are still enjoyable to read because they make me think. Not quite the same since it's not drawing, but whatever. I might think the characters are cute or good-looking, but I'm at best living vicariously through their happiness or remembering my own happy feelings in relationships/hoping for the future. I kind of feel the same way about seeing my friends getting into relationships irl. I just love seeing people in love. There isn't really a sexual component other than that if it involves adults, the story will probably have sex. I don't get off while reading/looking at any of this. At "worst" I've read something where a character resembles my partner and/or I ended up projecting us/imagining ourselves and getting horny about that. It's the "wish I had that" thing people get. People, not all of them, but many, project onto one or both characters and wish they could have what the couple has, whether it's good looks, money, power, hot sex, emotional stability, whatever. A lot like porn, the problem is when you're really into stuff that's fucked up or stuck on it, conditioning yourself to it, and let it ruin your irl expectations or relationships. And there are definitely fandom weirdos who have gotten obsessed with ships and ship porn who send death threats. Look at Tumblr or LJ.
>But if the ship consists of two teenagers the same age and the art isn't literal porn, I think it's fine. Especially if the ship is canon. Yusuke and Keiko are 14, and the dude who wrote/created them was in his late thirties at the time. Is he a pedophile, too? Are adults not allowed to write stories about teenagers being in relationships with each other, despite that being a real thing that happens normally in real life?
With kid/teenager ships it seems like some people are wistful for first loves or childhood crushes, but it definitely gets into creep territory with some people. The problem with writing about teenagers is that teenagers have sex, and doing that without acting or looking like a creep to some people is really hard, unless you are also a teenager. And that there are people who write that because they're pedo-lite rather than because they're trying to tell a story. The love stories you mention in Miyazaki films are really sweet and well-done imho, although he's also spoken about trying to write relationships between boy and girl that aren't quite romance but mutual needing, idk what the quote was exactly. Those are some of the most wholesome and unobjectionable romances involving kids you could possibly think of. It's all about tastefulness.
I think people get really pressed about fiction when they shouldn't and go after the wrong people, but also think that sometimes what you ship might reflect something about yourself, and not always good things. Like personal problems, your taste in partners, etc. If you're drooling at the thought of your ship having sex, I think yeah, that's definitely sexual, but I don't think everyone does it for that reason. Fujos seem to do that a ton because they're into gay sex and it fits neatly with the romantic aspect.
I know shipping/romance fiction and art is pretty cringe but it's an interesting topic. Just usually devolves into shit-flinging, much like "muh ship is better" retardation.

Japan just censored some of their stuff but haven't challenged the misogyny that pervades porn. Afaik yes, CP was technically legal until recently, and some laws about video porn were probably passed in the 80s by the Diet partially because of all of the pornographic computer games. Misogyny in Japan is cultural and it's not going to change in porn unless the culture changes, period. Look at how the sex industry there focuses on objectification of young women and schoolgirls, including paying schoolgirls to go on dates or soap men up. It hasn't even changed in countries with less obvious misogyny, it's just notably worse in Japan.
I think the only solution that works without potentially trying to ban freedom of sexual expression is changing the culture, and that's fucking hard and takes time. And giving people actual sex ed and imagery of human sexuality that's more neutral so that they aren't learning from porn first, as well as educating people on how you can form sexual habits/compulsions that are unhealthy and that porn usage can/will feed that if left unchecked.
I personally dislike porn most of the time, but I don't like taking the draconian route of banning it and think it means people will just go underground.

I think the big problem is that there's too much free porn. It was much harder for people to get addicted to porn before the internet, back when accessing it required some sort of payment. You had to pay for the channels, or buy the magazines, or rent the videos on VHS.

Now that it's free, self-control is the only means of moderating intake, and we all know how shit men are at self-control. I feel like if porn required payment again, the problem would ease. But I have no idea how something like that could be implemented.

Dont get me wrong, I don't care if people make fun of fat people. I'm definitely not innocent when it comes to mocking people's appearances. But as someome who has struggled with my weight, I can say shame is not a good motivator for long term lifestyle changes that it takes to lose weight and keep it off.

I just hate the "I'm doing it because I care about people!!11!" Bullshit excuse. If they actually cared about people being healthier, they could push for things like better food regulations so there's less added sugar in food, or better education for children/parents about healthy diets, more honest food packaging(regarding nutritional information) etc. But they don't do any of that because they don't actually care.

They nitpicked about everything I ate, how much exercise I did or didn’t do, my choices about my diet…and of course I couldn’t say anything because they were fat and that would be fat shaming and I’d be the shitty one there.
Don’t get me wrong, of course I understand where you’re coming from and why you’re saying what you’re saying but having people who weight 15 pounds more than me telling me how flat my ass is or how unhealthy my diet was, while they couldn’t walk for more than half and hour without losing breath and having to rest for two hours is pretty…Ironic.

I'm that anon and I agree with you, fat people are often the worst when it comes to being judgmental about other's appearances, even towards other fat people. The other day in the break room at work, a female coworker who is morbidly obese was complaining about fat women wearing bikinis. Also my grandma (who has been overweight her entire life) is EXTREMELY nitpicky about people's appearances, but especially weight and will call people fat who are less fat than she is.

But like I said I'm not saying people should never criticize fat people or make fun of them on the internet, I'm just saying they shouldn't use the "I'm doing it because I care" excuse because that's bullshit. Like if you're gonna fat shame just own it.

There used to be this youtube channel that is now deleted, but it was this guy who made nothing but "fat people cringe compilations" but then would make posts about how he cared about people's health and was making those videos to encourage people to be healthier.

Judgmental words about your blueness as a blue person would stick out more if it came from a red person as opposed from another blue person. The difference is more jarring and you naturally are more critical of people who aren't like you having their opinions. It's literally a defense mechanism that everyone has.

You're going to remember the short person that joked about your height than the slightly taller person who made the same joke. You likely just brushed the latter off as you didn't see it as a criticism when it came from the slightly taller person who is a bit more like you.

One of my friends went on a diet and on the second afternoon of her keto diet, she was already telling me how I should take breakfast because “it’s not that you’re not skinny, anon, but you still have fat around your thighs, see? No muscle, just fat”.

I mean, there's a movement with porn stars and camgirls telling people to buy their stuff or pay for porn, a lot of stuff is copyrighted and reposted posted violating copyright infringement. I'm not sure if they challenge things under copyright guidelines, but a lot of tube sites are chock full of rampant violation of copyrighted material that was supposed to be paid for, besides the obvious leaking material of girls/couples without consent. Some sites do work on a "pay to watch" basis. The problem is the same with everything else copyrighted: some of this stuff has so many mirrors or seeds that scrubbing it and stopping it spreading is very difficult. There are several metric fucktons of porn online, and I'm not sure how far people would go to find it if you tried to push the "free" stuff underground and make everything else paid, on a similar model to streaming and digital content for non-porn content.
Personally I think we need to make men get more self-control, but that's a tall order for a lot of them…they have to want to change or realize they're fucking themselves up by not browsing media responsibly.

I think anons replying to you and going on their "Well the fatties I've met are the most judgemental cunts ever!!!" tirades are completely misunderstanding your point. People definitely use the "I'm only worried!" excuse to be as vitriolic as possible because they find fat people disgusting. It's especially apparent when they make fun of fat people at the gym, like what the hell do you think they're doing there? Maybe trying to work out and lose the weight? How are you taking photos and giggling at the huffing fatass attempting at becoming healthier and still claiming you're doing it because "you're worried"? You're just a bully, admit it. I don't think fat positivity should be a thing either and definitely believe obesity is a problem but there are constructive ways to express it.

As for the "fat people are judgemental and made me fun of being a twig" yeah that happens too, I'm not even rail thin but just average weight and I've been told by my fat friends that I'm scrawny. But I really don't see the "you need to get some meat on your bones lmao!" remarks as hurtful and stigmatic as someone being ostracized for being overweight, because you really don't even need to be obese to be considered a fatty.

You shouldn't be mean to fat people solely for being fat, but it's human nature to be disgusted by visibly sick or unhealthy people. They're fat and it's slowly killing them.

NTA but fat people often have medical and psychological issues that make it hard for them to be healthy (I am not talking about genetics, though it happens in some cases as well). Instead of shaming, they need help in finding doctors that will allow them to tackle the undermining issue so that they can be healthy. It's a lot like with other forms of selfharm.

Agreed. People will jump up and down about how unfair it is that fat people can insult thin people by calling them twigs or sticks or whatever, whereas insulting fatties is taboo. And like yeah, technically it's not 'fair' in the sense that it's not 100% equal but come the fuck on. We all know perfectly well being thin is better than being fat and that one insult is far more hurtful than the other, because being fat is just worse for the vast majority of people. If a fat person tells me I'm too thin I take it as a compliment and honestly feel kinda smug, no matter how they intended it. A fat person could go on an absolute tirade about all my flaws and I'd still remain unaffected because being thinner than them trumps almost anything else.

And the UK has a massive grooming ring for young, underage girls and the Police refused to act on it. JK cafes have been banned in Tokyo and as far as I know, it's illegal by to have underage girls working in those. That Stacey Dooley documentary the article is referencing has been criticized multiple times for being scandal-seeking and twisting truths to make it more sensational. IIRC she didn't even check if the girls actually were underage and called a girl handing out maid cafe flyers a "child prostitute". And as for the child porn being banned, it is banned isn't it? 5 years ago or 50 years ago, it still is.

Fucking hate it when people blame all of their shitty actions and choices on outside forces or things. No, it's you that chose to be shiity. NOBODY held a gun up to your head and forced you to so these things. Own up to your actions! Like jesus when i was a drug addict and made some more than questionable things, i didn't go "b-but the drugs! but my TRAUMA!". I apologized to the people i hurt and then slowly came to changing the things that were shitty about me.

it can be both tho. this is overly simplistic and your experience doesn't mean you know what caused other peoples actions at all

No. 467882

>>467868
Yea, but to blame it on those outside forces means you are not taking any responsibility or accountability. Like you can start using drugs to cope with trauma…but the shitty choices you make doesn't make it the drugs fault. Before people into drugs, the vast majority of times the person knows what that will do to you and what kind of person you can become.

It's also like…if someone who is abused goes on to start abusing others, and they blame it on the fact they too were treated that way when younger…bla bla bla "i can't help the way i am due to this".

I'm sorry, but if you start doing shitty things you really have to look deep inside yourself and find the root cause, then work to change it. It's a cop out to continue to shift the blame any and everywhere else.

Like i get from a young age if you get shaped into being that way it is almost unavoidable and you can't really grasp the magnitude of your actions and also don't know better, but once you've reached a certain age and you KNOW what is right and what is wrong, it's time to stop the blame-game and get to doing some introspection.

(Also i am only talking about choosing to do shitty things. Not personality traits or other things changed by the things i mentioned)

Samefag, and it's quite obvious i might not know cause of other people actions because how could i?

Thank you, this is basically all I was trying to say. I was by no means trying to say that fat people are all angels who should be above criticism, just that 1) shaming/bullying is not productive or helpful, and 2) I hate it when people just want to be an asshole but hide behind the "I'm doing it because I care!!!" excuse. And actually it doesn't even have to be about fat, it could be about anything really, like bullying the weird kid so they become "normal". It's just that I see way more of it about fat shaming.

I also agree that the body positivity movement is bad, like telling people that they can be healthy at any size. I wish the body positivity movement was more centered around things that are impossibe/difficult to change about your body, like stretch marks, scars, cellulite, acne, thinning hair, height etc etc.

Why lie to unattractive people?, if your face is full of acne and you are loosing hair you can't pretend that's a positive. Body positivity is inherently condescending and disconnected from reality, maybe if they'd call it body acceptance r body resignation it make more sense. "sure , i have these unatractive traits so maybe i'll focus on something else" is very different from "yas kween, i am a bootilicious overweight momma and i am smoking" . I can't imagine someone with body positive attitude as anything other than a self deluded cow, body positive communities are setting people up for disappointment.

Because how dare someone feel attractive even with features such as stretch marks or cellulite (both extremely natural and common features for women btw, they’re to an extent even secondary sex characteristics due to our fat distribution and skin elasticity), no they should instead ‘resign’ to their reality of apparently being undesirable.

Beauty standards are classist and are impossible to reach all of without expensive augmentation. The only people who benefit from the idea of innate traits being "ugly" are corporations and the dumbasses who give them money.

If you are a human being, you naturally have at least ONE of the following: cellulite, stretch marks, acne, a big nose, a fivehead, small tits, saggy tits, small ass, nasolabial folds, crooked teeth, thin hair, rosacea, dark circles, big labia minora, wide shoulders, dark arm hair, thin lips, an overbite, an underbite, a widow's peak, psoriasis, chicken skin, eczema, scars, or eyebags.

If someone doesn't even possess ONE of these things, it's because they've poured a great deal of money and/or time into changing/hiding them.

Honestly this "looking completely perfectly in every way" is a recent invention and had to come in the 21st century with the exposure of porn and photoshopped actresses/singers. People always wanted to look perfect but the poreless, hairless, so called "flawless", ect doll trend is taking it too far and not even sexy to me and a lot of people.

How do you not know what psoriasis is? Also, there aren't any cows that have it afaik. Psoriasis is something people get bullied for in real life on an individual basis. It's when there are patches of elevated, scaly pink skin, usually on the neck or scalp.

Chicken skin is when your arms are covered in tiny, firm red bumps. It looks sort of like rosacea until you get close. It's also called keratosis.

Both conditions are really common. You've probably seen them without knowing what they were called.

Anyway, it's no surprise that many people who bitch about modern art are just virtue signalling about being born in the wrong generation. They don't really know anything about it, or have any real interest in it.
It's an extension of those people who are like "Remember REAL music? All this new shit sounds the same!" even though all they listen to is dadrock that also all sounds the same and was backed by the same big record companies that back the current generic pop musicians.

Just asking because I've always had what people consider meatflaps, but I never remembered if it's something that happened during puberty or if I always had them. I never looked at my labia as a kid

I have no inner labia visible. One man made a comment likening it to a child (I won't be explicit). I actually don't have children or have an occasion to see one unclothed so I have no clue nor remember what a child looks like.
My mother's nether regions look just like mine. (I had to see her like that when she was very ill for very long and needed bathroom assistance). So I assume it's genetic and not due to puberty which was quite normal for me. I have had a lot of piv sex so all that BS men spew is such.
I hate my labia because of the comments I have heard through the years, IRL and online in general, and have often wished for some sort of freak acid spill. I know it's unhealthy and I probably need therapy but I absolutely hate the appearance so much. It also makes me not trust any male partners I've had; more so if they have made any sort of explicit comments. fuck I need a bit of therapy.

Amazing how triggered weebs gets, like you honestly feel like it's your homeland. An actual Japanese person would not get this defensive.

The low crime rate is from their corrupt legal system where they have a 99% conviction rate since it's basically legal to force confessions there. Don't care about defending Western degenerates so whataboutism doesn't work.

Have fun with your community packed to the brim with pedos, trannies and actual ASD sufferers though and don't worry being aroused by drawings of children definately does not mean you are aroused by children or anything which would just be crazy to say.

They are just the two major producers of media internationally so they are constantly on the public scrutiny.

Yeah this. It's absolutely astonishing how people are willing to ignore the exploitation of actual kids in the west just to bitch about muh drawings and how they totally read online that you can buy used toddler panties and child sex slaves from local grocery stores. Japan has an extremely low amount of crime compared to countries like the UK or US and you really can't explain it all away with the "people don't report it" meme.

But of course if you're not throwing your common sense away because weebs made you cringe in high school and that's why you're on a life long vendetta against them, you're a pedo supporter and probably a pedo yourself. Remember how fast people forgot about Jeffrey Epstein just to bitch about stupid shit like Sakimichan drawing lewd pictures of an aged up character, if they ever addressed him at all?

I got called for a phone interview while I was at work, and one of the male coworkers-who doesn't have a very high opinion of me-made fun of my voice after I was done with the call. It's my "customer service" voice which tends to be very tonal and high energy. Because I worked at a call center for three years and was in retail for another four years before that.
I thought he was being so fucking annoying.

I explained to him that's an autopilot survival trait for anyone who's ever worked customer service long term. Especially in a call center. And especially for women.
Because customers are so fucking irate that they can only be placated by singsong charm. Many customers tend to get combative and perceive women employees as having "attitude" if we're not bubbly and perky. Calls, and even my face to face interactions, with customers 9 times outta 10 always ended better if I talked like that. It usually took a massive prick to treat me otherwise. Speaking like that was how I mentally protected myself from becoming a verbal punching bag, and even sometimes it still happened no matter how nice I was.
That damn call center pounded into my head to "smile with my voice," while my retail jobs reprimanded women employees on their performance reviews if they weren't friendly==unless they had kids or knew the manager, then they got away with murder.

This coworker doesn't fucking understand because he's such a god damn know it all. He's a military boy who went into the paramedic field after he got out. While he knows how to take an order, he's never been ripped apart for something out of his control. His job is one where he doesn't have to necessarily have bedside manner-which he doesn't. I see him raise his voice and act passive aggressive all the time over slights, and gets shaky and miffed when he encounters any client who's remotely belligerent towards him. Can you imagine this fucker surviving without authority? Fuck no. If he talked to customers like how he talked to me, he'd be fired in no time.

He's probably half-pissed that I don't talk to him in that sweetly, subordinate tone. But too bad. He's not someone I report to in our office, he's a coworker with a different function and it really agitates him that I don't answer to him sometimes.
He went on further to divulge his criticisms about me by also adding how I have an excuse for everything and can't handle criticism.
It's like, bitch, I've worked in customer service for several years and you think I've never had to swallow criticism before? You think I've never been held to account?
Again, just because I don't answer to HIM because he's not my SUPERVISOR and when he talks to me he's a DICK, he thinks I'm the one with poor work attitude.

And guess who had to swallow his criticisms to keep the peace? Yeah, I can't handle anything…

I've had to deal with this problem at every job I've ever had as well. If you aren't fake bubbly, it's the equivalent of being a belligerent cunt somehow. I put on the show for customers but I don't for management because it's just not who I am and I can't. Once they see I do pretty for customers they chill. I'm never anyone's favorite person though.

I'm moving into a different career soon and thinking about trying to show up with a peppier, more optimistic and friendly personality so people will like me better. Do you think it's worth it to keep up an act like that? My well of positivity doesn't run deep but I won't have to use as much of it on customers as I do in my current job so there would be more left over for coworkers.

No. 469036

>>469021
That's gonna take up a lot of your energy, anon.
There's nothing wrong with being friendly to your coworkers that you click with, just don't go out of your way to be unnaturally peppy. Sometimes shit like that backfires because they accuse you of being 'fake' the second you slip up or have a bad day. The only person you need to make sure likes you are your supervisors and upper management so you'll have a bridge to a career promotion down the way.

Bottom line: People who've been in customer-facing industries for years will know the score. The smart ones all got a customer 'mask.'
