I don't believe most girls who say they're bisexual are really that. Most of them are bicurious straight chicks or they just want leeway to fetishize women but they don't actually want to date them and still prefer men.

No. 509693

Lizzo is awful

No. 509695

This isn't really an unpopular opinion, and it's sort of a common (typically blantantly misogynist) "joke" about bisexual women, implying that no women are actually bisexual and that women who publicly engage romantically with other women are actually just straight and seeking attention from men. It's weird how the existence of bisexuality is hard for people to fathom for some reason.

No. 509699

I never said that women who are in relationships with other women aren't really gay/bi or that no women are bisexual though? I do believe that lots of women are legitimately bisexual, and I wasn't talking about girls who actually get in relationships with other girls but more talking the girls who constantly say things like "aww yea I love them titties" yet only ever date men. I just believe that a lot of girls who identify as "bisexual" are more bicurious than anything.

No. 509701

Tbh I don't get why people believe have to prove their sexuality. A lot of people don't have many romantic partners in short amounts of time.
I rarely ever hear this directed at men who say they're bisexual.
I don't get the seeking attention from men excuse either. Bisexuality doesn't mean someone's hornier than the average person or non-monogamous.

No. 509702

That's because very very few men even admit to being bisexual. I've never even met a man who claimed to be bisexual.

No. 509706

I know you didn't specifically say some of those things, I was simply pointing out that those are common underlying meanings of ideas and phrases like that, concerning female bisexuality. "Engage romantically" can mean two women being in a legitimate relationship or two (not dating) women simply kissing in public - I've heard it said towards both that women who do that aren't truly bisexual and simply act that way for male attention, which can be the case at times, but definitely not in all cases. Some women who have only dated men are bisexual and would like to date women, but are afraid to come out due to those exact ideas about female bisexuality.

Many men who do come out as bisexual get either outright told or suggested to them that they're just gay and don't want to come out of the closet (the way that many women who come out as bisexual get told that they're just straight and looking for attention.) Bisexual erasure is (sadly) present for both sexes.

No. 509756


I get what you mean and I’ve come across girls like that too. They want to try being with a girl for a night and that’s it.

Full on attraction to women is natural and you don’t do shit like that. I’m bisexual and female. I’ve dated both men and women. To me it’s just who I find attractive and that’s it. I don’t gloat about tits 24/7. If she’s got nice breasts then that’s a bonus I guess. But I don’t pay it much mind because I expect a woman to come with them lmao.

Ngl i won’t date a trans woman though. I just can’t.

No. 509757


I’m bisexual and I’ve dated girls. I genuinely cared for them but it just didn’t work out for various reasons. Same with the guys but that’s just me.

No. 509777

i don't get some people that complain about the price of public transit. it's already cheap and most places only have you pay for it once every 2 hours. so you're basically free to hop on any train or bus as many times as you want. if you have the legs and don't want to pay your fare, you can walk to your destination. public tranist can be considered a privilege, as much as a car. i mean, be grateful you don't have to pay for upkeep for a personal car, which includes oil changes, gas fill up, and other fluids that need to be replaced or topped every so often. if public transit is your way to get to work, it's basically the same, it's already way cheaper overall than owning a personal car for those same reasons i already pointed out. i've traveled 40 minutes away from home using public tranist, and it cost me a total of $5 to get there one way, if i drove my car, i would've paid the same price, on top of paying for public parking, so public transit it is.

No. 509820

I agree and I'm saying this as a bi girl myself. Girls that call themselves bi or "gay af teehee" are girls that just say dumb shit like "girls are so cute n smol" and aren't actually willing to have a relationship with a woman that goes beyond a short term fling or a few kisses.
It's honestly really gross to me because they don't actually view relationship with women on the same level as a relationship with a man.
There are also bi girls that are genuinely bi, but it is true that we will gravitate toward the norm depending on where we live for convenience. If you are serious about someone like I was a few years ago then coming out isn't an issue.
Why would anyone want to date a man with a fetish or a woman with internalized misogyny lel

I found many of the 2000s subcultures very mean spirited and obsessed with making fun of women who didn't fit into the ultra-feminine skinny ideal.

Also there was a huge backlash against feminists and lesbians ("dyke" was a common insult back then and it was near obsessive). I also noticed femininity being associated with vapidness and existing for male sexual approval back then too.

I cringe watching a lot of 2000s "funny" shows because a lot of it is centered on making fun of people you don't like and bullying them through "jokes", feels like the precursor to the SJW and cancel culture era tbh.

Is it as autistic as Sonic though?

No. 510644

Shit, I just was about to mention Sonic.

My unpopular opinion for this thread: I think Sonic's autism was exaggerated way too much because of its fanbase and especially Chris-Chan (who was also a Pokemon fan and that fanbase is also extremely autistic but doesn't get near the rep Sonic does despite being 3x as big these days), the Sonic games were mostly only autistic because of 2-3 games and biggest issues were about the inconsistent & bad gameplay more than anything else. I also think Sonic had really unfortunate timing since it was big in the 90s/00s so a lot of coomers and furries (who are legendarily deranged) were drawn to it and produced a lot of autistic shit. But now its 2020 and nearly every video game, cartoon, or anime fandom is autistic as fuck and cumbrained, but since its so normalized now only sonic's fandom gets remembered as the autistic one. I think a lot of shit these days is pretty fucking cringe so it's always funny to see someone who draws lewds of cartoon characters for a living and talk about how X anime/video game girl is so hot talks about how sonic's fanbase is so autistic, like it's some heavy dissonance right there. Furries are becoming normalized even more too and I see even the "regular" (for that community) fans lusting over borderline furry or furry characters. It's sad tbh.

Not to sound like a crotchety old crone, but I'm seriously concerned about how fucked up today's kids are going to be. You already hear the youngest millenials/older zoomers joking about how being on the internet fucked them up as children.

Absolutely. I've been using the internet daily for almost half of my life. My main concerns are for young girls going through what I went through. Online child grooming, hell we even have a thread on it because an alarming amount of anons have experienced it, constant comparing to edited, photoshopped pics etc. It's hard. On one hand, many people don't understand internet friendships and how they can actually help.

The main problem with centrist is that they're often blind to their biases. They're born in mildly sexist, racist, or conservative cultures, or the flip.

No. 511421

Similar to the child internet safety discussion, in the UK they are planning on having internet users provide adult ID in order to access adult sites. I think it's a once off ID check. Where I live my own internet provider already does the same thing and it takes mere minutes to then unlock adult content long term

I have seen men get all sorts of enraged over this proposal, as if they are having a basic human right stripped away from them. Fuck child safety I guess? It's more important that teens be able to jerk off to porn. Men are worried about their porn habits being possibly linked to their real life name.

The American university system is better than other university systems.

I just got my grades back from studying abroad. I got 2:1s in all of my classes despite barely studying compared to the amount I have in the US. Overall, I think the classes and grading were a joke.

I felt like I barely learned anything and the exam system can barely assess how much a student can know. As an economics student I don't understand why you would use written exams to measure economics knowledge when it's supposed to be a mostly math based subject.

I think picking your course of study before you go to uni is a bad idea. So many people end up going to uni and not enjoying what they study because they had no idea in secondary school what the subject is like. American students also get to be more well-rounded.

I think the classroom experience was worse. Other students didn't seem to care about the topic at all, and it was like pulling teeth to get people to answer questions. There were so many times people talked during class, which I think is so disrespectful.

The only bad thing about the American system is that you have to pay a lot. That can be avoided depending on how you choose to attend college, and it's mostly a recent problem.

I wish people didn't shit on Americans for being stupid and having a bad educational system. American university is obviously overpriced but I think there's a good reason so many people want to come here.

I thought they already tried and failed, several times? They were so ready to roll it out then pushed it back to April last year before quietly cancelling it, I read an article. Are you saying they’re attempting this again?

Tbh I don’t trust the UK gov to not screw this up or resist using this maliciously. It’s a joke of a nanny state and imo if they really want to through their fund money somewhere to ‘protect the kids’, they should be making classes for parents to learn how to do their jobs because people can’t raise their kids for shit these days. Tangent here but the state of parenting in the UK rotten to me, too much ‘give the kid an iPhone with Peppa Pig on Youtube then fuck off for the day’. Banning people from raising a hand to their kids for abuse fears but then not telling them how else to discipline them so I constantly hear "piss off, little Jimmy" "stop fucking crying already", "we’re going home and you’ll go to your room you little shit", but at least that’s not beating them, eh?

Anyway, but to gain internet access you presumably need to be an adult to have the relevant ID to purchase broadband, what 15 year old is going to start a monthly contract with Virgin? Child safety starts with the parent, and the basic human right I’m worried is the abuse of privacy because letting the government set this up is giving them a lot of power I don’t trust them with. To use your point, I don’t want there to be a possibility that my porn habits are linked to my ID as a citizen (and as a woman) on someone’s paperwork. And like people have said, what constitutes as an adult site? Even Wikipedia has whole sections dedicated to explaining fetishes and sexual techniques. And this place, some of things we discuss here are NSFL with links to cows’ degeneracy and anons admitting theirs on /ot/ and /g/ all the time, should we really make every Bong anon give their ID to access the farms? Is that where my tax money’s going?

What counts as ‘too adult for kids’ breaks down when you look at it too finely, which is a big reason why I think it should up to the discretion of kids’ parents who have the best chance of monitoring what they actually do online vs some government hired boomers who are too out of touch with every aspect of this and are likely only pushing it to pat themselves on the back for doing something that looks good. Reminds me of Japan looking to limit minors’ video game time when they should really focus on making their society less soul crushingly suicidal so that those hikis-to-be don’t have to escape reality so hard in the first place.

>Anyway, but to gain internet access you presumably need to be an adult to have the relevant ID to purchase broadband, what 15 year old is going to start a monthly contract with Virgin?
If we're being honest, most of the minors are probably just going to have their older brothers or even their dads verify with their IDs, and then they'll have free access to porn whenever they're using the internet a home. Or they'll leech off the wifi of someone else who has it. Or some freaks are going to make a habit of sharing it on places that are supposed to be childsafe like Amino. No one can tell me the government doesn't know about all these loopholes too lmao.
This entire thing is a sham and it's going to lead the way to other, even more invasive things. Porn is just an excuse. They just want to collect even more of people's data. I agree the spread of pornography has gone too far and it's messing up kids minds, but it's transparent what the real goal is.
I'm already paranoid about loss of privacy, reading things like this makes me more nervous.

I do think cultural appropriation as a concept has some merit in an academic sense, but in terms of how people try to apply it, it's almost always just gate keeping. Like I do sometimes wonder if "X" person can declare that some garment or ritual is sacred and therefore some other group can't copy or imitate or partake or what have you, what IS to stop someone else from just saying "nah, it's fine, everyone else have at this clothing, ritual, celebration, etc." When the "this is my culture, not a costume" stuff came up some years back, I said, "well okay, it's my culture(ethiopian) too I guess, and I say that it's fine that people wear this stuff in costume….now what?

I might change my view, but my current unpopular opinion is that "cultural appropriation" is a means of gatekeeping made by those that haven't made any individual accomplishments.

No. 512441

I half agree. I don't really mind much when other people take an interest in the culture I'm from. Mostly, it just annoys me when they're dead silent when the people that those very things originated from are discriminated against for it.
Like, I'm not going to feel bad or stand up for people who are politically gatekept for fashion choices until I see them follow through with political action to accompany their aesthetic appreciation. If you're in it, you're in it. You take the good with the bad.
I'd just feel really dumb defending someone else's right to do something that would get me thrown out of educational institutions or fired from work, lmao.

I dont understand people's obsession with Parasite. It's alright for a Korean movie (which isnt saying much because the stuff that comes out in theaters here is a pile of shit)

The acting? It's typical Korean acting. There's nothing amazing about these performances. Stereotypical 'rich' acting and the cheesy hammed up "we're poor, so we're forcing this over the top 'im so tough' way of speaking". Idc what you say, but if are watching a film in a foreign language, its not really fair to judge the acting.

Also if you've ever read Korean literature, you'd be surprised how many obvious tropes are in this movie. Including 'characters trapped in scary basement' that 80% of korean novels like to include. Its so damn annoying seeing all of these other nominated films being snubbed at the oscars because "the characters didnt blown me away!" or "this movie is just full of typical tropes!" and then suck off a movie where they are blinded by tropes and have a huge language barrier and are focused on subtitles then whole time.

The cultural appropriation gatekeeping you described is always done by American second/third gen immigrants.

I hate gay men that treat their wives like breeding stock and then decide to come out and are all applauded for it. They’re not ‘brave’ for coming out once they’ve manipulated a woman into marriage and then into having children with them. I don’t give a shit if they grew up in a more homophobic time, no one held a gun to their head forcing them to have children with women over and over, all the while most likely cheating on her with other closeted gay men (risking their wives lives in two different ways!)

My unpopular opinion is that if you were in the closest for so long then fucking stay in it. Why break the heart of the woman you were supposed to love when she devoted so much to you?

I feel 'stop romanticizing mental illness!' has become a buzz word now. I acknowledge it came from very real roots and what it's meant to combat still exist, but it's been mostly co opted by people using it as a shield.
The main people who repeat 'stop romanticizing' aren't always wrong, but often it's used by people who miss the point of why romanticizing mental illness is wrong, which are competing to see who is the most sick, idealizing suicide, and giving a false image of mental illness. An average redditor who makes fun of a tumblr teen for romanticizing mental illness will fall on 'My depression is realer, you faker', go onto a meme subreddit to make 'I wanna die' jokes, and their proof of someone faking a mental illness devolves into 'high functioning depression, often in women, cannot exist.'. Most people who combat 'romanticizing mental illness' are no better than the romanticizers themselves. Reddit, a site the prides it self on being better than tumblr, will defend making depression memes as a way to cope, but if tumblr said 'I make edgy poems to cope' the site would be decimated.

The biggest proof of it's buzz wordiness to me is how people just repeat the same 3 'don't romanticize mental illness' arguments. It's no longer about wanting to help people, but, as much as I hate the word, virtue signalling. Also the dudes out their who think an edgy teen writing suicide poems on their tumblr is the same thing as pro Ana people is surprisingly high. Finally it's autistic to think people use 'anxious' and 'depressed' without having the clinical versions of the disease.

I thought the "don't make i wanna die memes they're sooooo hurtful!! uwu" people were the ones reeing about romanticizing and trivializing mental illness. On a related topic, people who bitch about others coping with nihilistic but funny and ~relatable~ "gonna kill myself" memes are annoying and need to mind their own business, if I want to laugh at a joke about depression because my mental state is a hellscape at the moment and I want something to make light of it for a moment then it's my own goddamn problem.

realistically, not morally, "I want humanity to die so animals can live happy" isn't possible. All the horrible things humans have done to the environment need humans to prevent from getting even worse. For example Chernobyl still leaks radiation to the point it needs a team to still prevent it from leaking, the USA has 80 (public) radioactive sites that need to be watched, and nuclear reactors that need watching 24/7.

we can't dispose of those things. we can only bury the radioactive waste and wait for it to decay, bury the plastic and wait for it to biodegrade, run water pollution through a scrubber to turn it into air pollution, etc. our use of resources now is exponentially increasing to the point that invoking our own extinction is inevitable, it's not really a question whether other animals are going to suffer and die. so i agree with you there, but i don't think there's much we can do to soften the blow at this point. in the long run, for the sake of the rest of the biosphere, the sooner we stop using resources (i.e., die) the better.

It's all just uwu garbage.

The symptoms aren't exclusive. But they are persistent and severe enough to effect quality of life, hence disorder. Similar to being anxious v having anxiety disorder. What I hate about this is the illustration of symptom manifestations being cute child-like benign quirks.

No. 515804

I have been professionally diagnosed with ADHD but I don't see the appeal of random, wacky comics for the "ADHD community." In some ways I do think I fit the hyper stereotype of ADHD as depicted in the comic, but I feel most adults with ADHD are just normal people who have problems concentrating effectively. (The people in my ADHD support group seemed that way and that's why I dropped it)

I guess a lot of the symptoms presented to relate to ADHD in some way, but I don't see the empathy one at all.

No. 515814

I think the best example is that normal people can stop and control this, but an ADHD person can't without effort. For the sandwich example a normal person would be able to regulate the rage, but and ADHD person lacks emotional regulations and will punch his friend over chewing. Also these things are 24/7. It's not something that happens every so often, but something they have to deal with on an hourly basis.

Maybe it's a bitter view, but most people are selfish When it comes to mental wellbeing. When they say "It's okay to talk about depression," they really mean it in the context of posting memes, general nihilistic conversation, or if they need you to perform the emotional labor of being their therapist. It doesn't mean they're going to be reciprocal or willing to raise tangible help. When they say "Reach out!" they actually mean catch them during a convenient time when they're open to listening to your problems if they can be assed to respond to you the first time–which is rare–oh and don't overburden them even thought that line is pretty subjective by individual anyway.

Lame animal puns and that whole long gag with those kids pretending to be an adult do not hit the mark for me and are far from subtle. If I wanted humor and a hard-hitting dark story, I’d go for King of the Hill and Moral Orel respectively over BH.

No. 515937

I tried watching a lot of it as well and found it so lacking. I wonder if many of the diehard fans who find it funny and compelling just relate to Bojack being a loser and an asshole. Just not for me either way.

No. 515938

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Bojack Horseman. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp on existentialism most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head.

I find the e-boy or e-girl aesthetic gross. I never knew what exactly it was until recently but I never liked it. Any kind of person who could fit or does fit into that internet aesthetic that gets gassed up by nerds and losers immediately turns me off. Plus all of them lack the presence, sex appeal, and charisma of the other I guess more "normie" people who are popular for the same reason. Although many normies these days rely on some level of e-aesthetics to boost their sex appeal (face tuning, deliberately holding in their face and posing in a certain and calculated way that erases them from all their humanity, ect). There's just something painfully awkward and dishonestly insecure about all of them also. I don't like it.

I also dislike current photo editing of pictures and makeup. Humans have always erased their flaws but there was a period in the mid-late 20th century where appearing more natural (relatively) was the thing. Going back to the pre 1960s Western society period where everyone is overly focused on how they look and appear to others to the point they make themselves devoid of any personality or human resemblance is kinda lame. Reminds me of how 1950s and before starlets were all very calculated, robotic like, and posed in a certain way where 1970s starlets were more focused on being "real" and looked noticeably more greasier, messier (and so did the regular people as well, lmao) since being a overtly posh and rich faggot was considered lame and uncool because of a trending anti-establishment and rebellious sentiment in young boom booms.

Another one for this thread, but I dislike how every alternative or non normie culture has been pretty much contaminated with the stench of anime and vidya now. there's not much pure alternative subcultures right now that isn't intertwined with coomers and weeaboos. Not that anime and video game nerds can't have their own thing but it being pretty much every nerdy thing or non normalfag interest is annoying.

I think that pap smears are unnecessary if you don't have any of the risk factors and are a young woman. I also think that it's messed up that they are used like a carrot-with-a-stick before many doctors will prescribe birth control. Imagine your dermatologist refusing to treat your acne if you didn't get a skin cancer test (more common than cervical cancer). Imagine doctors refusing to give basic meds to men (that only depended on blood pressure) unless they had yearly prostate exams. I swear modern women have been almost brainwashed by the medical establishment and social conditioning to think that if they don't get a pap every year they will 100% get cervical cancer and die.
By the way, the World Health Organization only recommends it every 3-5 years AT MOST if you aren't at risk, and like I said it's a misconception that you need one yearly and I know a lot of women irl that still think this. I even met doctors that think this.
Also, it's funny the way women react like you are the stupidest, most childish bitch on the planet if you have any criticism about the way and frequency paps are performed. They act like you are just being defiant for the sake of it. My own mother treated me this way and had a smug reaction when I had one. I think it is because they can't handle the fact that they might be putting themselves through dozens and dozens of invasive tests over their lifetime for NOTHING.
Oh, FYI if you live in the United States, it is legal for medical students to perform pap exams on you without your consent while you are unconscious in the hospital, even if it isn't for a gynecological related surgery. Look it up. I feel like it is disgusting how women's medical autonomy is treated in the United States. I was ranting about it in relating to birth control and doctors brushing off side effects or minimizing my pain in another thread and it just made me so angry thinking about all this shit.
Source on pelvic exams without consent: Educational pelvic exams on anesthetized women: Why consent matters by Phoebe Friesen (God I hope this isn't so common, makes me afraid of needing surgery)
Additionally, I think that males shouldn't be allowed to be fertility doctors and it should be common sense.

Unpopular opinion, I didn't think Birds of Prey was that bad.

It was a harmless silly action flick that reminded me of the old cheesy Batman movies like Batman forever mixed in with the 2000 Charlie's angels.
It was still better than suicide squad. I see so many reviews shitting on it for preaching girl power but I didn't even think it was that in your face about it.
People mainly complaining about it sounded like incels. The costumes and soundtrack was cool and cute.
This is coming from someone who judges movies hard usually, but I feel like this was a fun cute action chick flick not to be taken seriously anyway. The way the reviews were I really expected it to be worse than suicide squad.

I could understand some of the reviews by those who prefer Oscar nominated films but there's SO many bad reviews from marvel and dc fanboys who watch trash like antman and the wasp and tout it as amazing. It's not a 5 star quality movie but I found it way less boring than some of the marvel films I've had to endure.

A schoolteacher or other professional having her nudes or a sex tape leaked isn't going to be let off easy in most cases. The only people who won't care are young women, really. Others will still negatively judge, she can/will still be fired, and the best you can get is "It was wrong of the person who leaked this to do so".
The biggest leap forward is the emergence of laws against revenge porn in various countries, and that's because it's now more commonly understood how damaging it is to have compromising images or video leaked, not because it's seen as less of a big deal. Even then, once the damage is done, it's not really reversible unless you were lucky enough to cut the spread.

She too says how she’s not ashamed but the fact is she’s still very fired, more harassed than ever and probably will never teach children again. Sending nudes IS normalized now so why hasn’t the stigma around it gotten any better? Why are men still engaging in revenge porn if it’s “not a weapon” anymore? You’re really suggesting that we should just keep giving these losers ammos to hurt us like prayers until one day they suddenly change their mind.

Anon fat and black people have a harder time getting hired, and are more likely to be fired just because they exist as they are. Those are facts.
I don't think it's a perfect comparison either, but there's definitely employment stigma attached to those two groups. Anon's point was that attitudes have improved over time but there's room for more.

It has gotten better, just not enough.

This is definitely happening less and there are some places with laws for it now. It is becoming less weaponized.
>You’re really suggesting that we should just keep giving these losers ammos to hurt us
Where did any anons ever say that they support giving men nudes silly nilly?

The comparison was made as a means to illustrate how shit becomes more acceptable over time and although change doesn't happen overnight, it does happen.

And it's not a matter of men changing their minds lol why the fuck do dimwits always assume change comes from the micro level of convincing people personally? Men don't need to change their minds or stop cooming (what's wrong with that anyway? why give a shit?) it's simply a matter of normalization. Being gay has been normalized, and despite the fact that a lot of people still hate them, they're not really punished for that - because it's fucking normal.

And I'm not telling you to do anything, I'm well aware that a lot of spergs from this website are so afraid of having a male think a lewd thought about them that they'd wear a burka were it not for the religious connotation. But lots of girls aren't like this, and they have a positive impact in said normalization. I don't neurotically keep up with feminist discourse looking for the next thing to be outraged about so I don't know what's the story you're referring to, but my recent anecdotal experience with girls who got their nudes leaked was that fucking nothing happened. It would be unthinkable for nothing to happen as early as 5 years ago. Maybe you'd be able to see the progress if your definition of "making nudes acceptable" weren't men throwing their sexuality in the bin never to feel aroused by a titty ever again.

Unpopular opinion- Billie Eilish has a blackccent and appropriates black hood culture but gets away with it just like Gwen Stefani did with cholos and asians because she is popular as fuck.
Literally no-one I know thinks she's trying to sound black but I swear her fake accent is worse than Ariana's.

No. 516754

This is a pretty retarded nitpick, plenty of people appreciate hoodrat shit. Arianna Grande is a literal blackfish who tries to look racially ambiguous because she was competing with other latinas during the time she was marketed. Tanning your skin that dark and changing up your face to the extent she has is very desperate.

I get some of the clothing being nit picky but she definitely has a blackccent. The way she's always like 'yooooo' before she talks. She tries so hard to sound like a tough black girl and it's cringey. Especially since her music sounds nothing like the way she talks.

wildfires are good, they're regulating their ecosystem. obviously not good for people living near them, that's horrible

hunting is good to maintain the ecosystem as well. you don't want too much of one animal and throw off the balance of all the other animals and plants

guns are good for protection against supremacists and school shooters, the gov't shouldn't have all the weaponry though i understand they have tanks and shit. everyone should have one in their home or carry. the BPP had very good reasonings why they carried and i think it is still relevant today (hope this isn't race baiting)

options to vote for hunting/fishing protections during elections are there to get white right wingers to the polls to secure their republican vote, at least where I live in the US south

i recommend watching Vice which confirms 9/11 was an inside job. cheney was speaking to his lawyer when he "learned" of the attack. he didn't want to move from the white house when staffers told him to go to the white house bunker in case there was another bomb headed for them, but he knew the plans of the plains wouldn't come to white house

No. 516804

Hoodies aren't the appropriated clothing items I was talking about. The clothes were a minor point anyway, it's mainly the weird accent.
Also her comparison to Ariana had to do with her bizarre accent. Yes Billie doesn't do the crazy tan, but I was comparing the way she talks because her accent when she sings sounds nothing like the way she talks. Ariana is a piece of shit blackfisher, but her blaccent is nowhere near as bad as Billie's in my opinion.
I do agree that Ariana has gone further in terms of aesthetics to blackfish than Billie has, but Billie's accent is way more try hard. Ariana talks in the same way she sings, where as if I had never heard Billie Eilish talk, I would not think that was her real voice.

I really don't think it's right to push or guilt rape victims into reporting.
I saw a post on reddit yesterday of a dude whose friend raped his gf and he said he forced to reporting it. And everyone's in the comments saying he should take things at her pace, one saying "eventually she'll thank you for making her report". Like, what?

There feels like so many reasons for a victim to not report. Not only do you have to relive your trauma, you open than that humiliating experience up to everyone you know including the shits saying "how drunk were you, what were you wearing?", you have to go through physically invasive procedures for it to maybe not be processed anyway, questioned on it over and over, possibly turn it into a "he said she said" thing unless it was a violent rape, try have it turned back on you, have this thing dragged out over a long time when you just want to be over it, and in the end have a low chance of the person ever getting justice anyway.

Like fuck, I'm not sure I'd report if I were sexually assaulted. For what, a sense of justice? Nah if I were raped I'd want to take care of me and myself first and foremost.

And the women who report and for the most part lauded, but otherwise it's shit like:
-You NEED to report, it's the right thing to do
-if you don't, then he could do this to someone else in the future (sure, put that guilt on the victim!)

Oh, not forgetting the undercurrent of suspicion you get if you don't report, with people insinuating if it's a rape there's no reason to not report, so it was probably consensual. You get guys breaking up with their gfs because they were raped at a party and didn't report. I guess believing the victim is another story but I just think the whole "you need to go to the police" take is lacking in any kind of empathy and understanding.

Those girls were her background dancers and were called Love.Angel.Music.Baby (as seen on their shirts). Gwen called them the Harajuku Girls that were hired to promote her merch line called "Harajuku Lovers" that was a mix of her music and obviously, japanese aesthetics. If I remember it correctly, two of them were native japanese and the other two were american-japanese, she kept them around in her first solo album era to promote her fashion. She also still has her main fashion line, which has the name L.A.M.B. They were still around in the Sweet Escape era but not as much because they not needed as back prop anymore.

fire ecology researchers say "Fires often remove alien plants that compete with native species for nutrients and space, and remove undergrowth, which allows sunlight to reach the forest floor, thereby supporting the growth of native species. The ashes that remain after a fire add nutrients often locked in older vegetation to the soil for trees and other vegetation. Fires can also provide a way for controlling insect pests by killing off the older or diseased trees and leaving the younger, healthier trees. In addition to all of the above-mentioned benefits, burned trees provide habitat for nesting birds, homes for mammals and a nutrient base for new plants. When these trees decay, they return even more nutrients to the soil. Overall, fire is a catalyst for promoting biological diversity and healthy ecosystems. It fosters new plant growth and wildlife populations often expand as a result"

normally this would be true but the recent wildfires in australia got out of control because of the weather becoming increasingly more dry and there being less and less rain. you need rain to both control the fire and also for the land to rebuild itself after the fact. the weather is changing and it's having a subtle but devestating effect on wildfires. it's also not just koalas affected by this. fish and other important species are in danger due to the massive amount of land that was burned.

I watch an english YTer who is married and lives in China. I like it cause he's fluent and he goes to a lot of unpopular/non-touristy places and he's even gotten in some heat for it before. He's made a lot of interesting videos, and more recently about the coronavirus. Well anyway he made this video to more or less highlight some negative aspects of Chinese culture. I get that he was trying to tie these bad things (unsanitary wet markets, spitting in public, etc) to why the coronavirus took off as much as it did.
Yet he just spent a large amount of time in the video talking about how wet markets butcher dogs, and it was a lot of emotional emphasis that took up so much time. I get it but at the same time it's so pandering to appeal to the one animal people emotionally identify with most. He spent more than several minutes about dog butchery when the other animals sold at these markets go through the same if not more tortuous conditions too. Meanwhile he only showed a quick flash of softshell turtle babies scrambling for their little lives in a crowded plastic tub, for example.

It's just a low blow. Pigs and cows are just as intelligent and feeling but we slaughter them in the west by the masses.
It shouldn't be about what type of animal is being slaughtered, it should be about how making another living thing suffer in unhygienic conditions is immoral for both the animals and for humans who no doubt are at risk for consuming this meat.

But we clearly haven't grown out of the old ideology of "omg a girl on the internet, kill it with fire".

I'm not stupid. I live in a society that favors men and looks down on educated, independent women. I needed to see for myself the fucked up shit on paper to 'build my case' to leave.

No movie is just "happy fun feels", they are trying to sell you a product that influences your thoughts, feelings, thinking and consuming patterns. Brushing it off as just a kid's movie, when it is in fact, propaganda, makes you look incredibly mindless and lacking in critical thought.

Depends on the racism.. usually white Americans when they dislike a particular minority group they will act anxious/awkward over their interaction with them, not make any contact, and show some level of nervousness being around them. I noticed Western & South Europeans (not sure about the others) won't demonstrate that level of nervousness and anxiety nearly as much, but can still harbor racist opinions or even more.

Sexism I agree is def worse. As weird as it sounds American men will treat me far more like an equal and contain their sexual desires far better than a French or Spanish man can.

I don't understand why us Americans fawn over foreigners accents or cultures yet they trash talk us when we try learning their languages or living abroad. When we mispronounce it's not proper but when others mispronounce english it's fine or adorable. Heck our nation wastes so much energy policicing all the other nations but we're still seen as idiotic annoyances. People in other countries always put blame on us for foreign affairs like we should fix it even if they're going to bad mouth us with a superiority complex.

ntart and also not an american but i think it's because americans are seen as having it all (privilege) and are an acceptable target for mockery.

If the opposite, they get praised for "appreciating". Just look at the kpop tweets obsessively fawning over some idol's English as if that's a big deal. If it was the opposite, they'll be mocked and would likely pop up on a cringe compilation.

He came here in London 6 years ago to be with his brit wife. I'm French and I LOVED hearing him try to speak with our french clients. He truly made huge efforts to memorize some entire sentences and it had its effect on clients. I'll always remember fondly when he came up to one of my very french client and to impress him asked him "Alors quel sassy soon vous aime"? (So what saucisson do you like ?). My client erupted in laughter but not mokingly, but amicably because it was just too charming the way he pronounced saucisson as sassy-soon.

Where do you get non-Americans trashtalking Americans for their accents from? In my experience, Americans and any foreigners in general only get trash talked when they demand to be spoken to in English in a non-English speaking country or make 0 effort to speak the language and expect the locals to adapt to them by speaking English for them rather than the other way around.

My only "problem" with Americans is that (from my personal experience interacting with Americans) they seem to live in a bit of a bubble, a bit oblivious to the world around them.

Not-like-other-girls bashing sometimes comes off as another form of bashing GNC women. I even see bashing where the implication is that being GNC in itself is internalised misogyny. I see GNC women accused of feeling superior all the time on the internet because people take their nonconformity as superiority without even getting to know her. I worry how that creeps into this discussion. there's a lot of take about the "not like other girls" mindset lately and there's even a lot of judgment toward GNC girls/women without a lot of understanding for their perspectives, a lot of it makes seem like its the "masculine" gnc girl's fault for harboring bad thoughts about the girls around her, and she has to unlearn internalized misogyny. many yimes GNC girls/women get accused of harboring the "not like other girls" sentiment regardless of whether or not they actually do, but people see that they're GNC or have "masculine"-coded hobbies and assume that these girls/women must have the mindset. It seems like there's a huge focus on talking about internalized misogyny in this context but almost no discussion about feminine girls/women who mistreat GNC girls/women, and almost never is that behavior framed as internalized misogyny or anything similar.
Growing up as very much a tomboy, I had this experience. I never thought anything about other girls and their hobbies- but they gossiped behind my back, teased me, used to pull pranks on me and ultimately shut me out. I never said I was "different from them", but they make me think that I was, which ultimately led to me not wanting to be associated with them. Feminine girls really aren't that welcoming and nice to the masculine ones at that age..

The not-like-other-girls jokes I see now further alienate me. It was confusing to see the same type of girls I witnessed picking on me for being GNC accusing others of internalized misogyny and all these memes that implied it was the isolated girls fault she wasn’t really being excluded! Look how friendly those girls are! Yeah no, it wasn’t like that. also this recent trend of "shipping" "not like other girl" characters is creppy to me because I would hate if people started shipping me with the type of people who literally made me want to commit suicide

Agreed, I see it all the time now that girls will vent about how they feel forced to wear tons of makeup, painful pushup bras, to constantly diet and restrict their calories, to pursue surgery and so on, and it gets dismissed as them being a qUiRkY pickme. I've seen comics where some teenager simply laments that she's fatter than most other girls and people accuse her of sexism and trying to appeal sexually to men somehow. I say this as someone who's very conventionally feminine specifically because of a lifetime of societal pressure and understanding that my career success can depend on how much makeup I wear, how my hair looks, how much I diet, if my clothes show off my figure. I understand how these girls are feeling and that it's not me that they hate, it's the cage of femininity that puts shackles around your brain even when you spend your days refusing to give in to it. It's always hovering over you demanding your time and energy and worry and it's exhausting. Of course there are notable examples of actual sexism occurring in this context, but most of the targets of this type of bashing are just random GNC minors.

The fact is that there are tons of children who are Gretas but they don't have the resources nor the influence. See the forest for the trees.

Anti-abortionists love the "Well your mom didn't abort you!" argument, because they think it's compelling. Cause they assume everyone's mom is grand like their own.
Actually it's a sad sentiment for those of us who legitimately had unstable and unfit parents. Because they would have been better off themselves for being childless, and we would have been given the kindness of not existing. Despite my accomplishments and attempts to make something of myself, my life has been riddled with difficulties because of the volatile nature of my narcissist mother. Thankfully my abusive bio dad fucked off a long time ago but he did me zero favors during the time I was forced to visit him. I often think of what my life would have been like to been born to a complete family full of unconditional love out the box who made selfless decisions for the benefit of their children. As opposed to the life I got, where I was dragged around the whims of my parents regardless of how it affected or traumatized me.

My mother tried but we never formed a bond because she was emotionally unavailable. Performative of her part as a mom around other family and guests, but deep down profoundly broken by her own lack of being nurtured when she was a child and selfishness. I think I was her 'panic' baby. What with her having me with a known abuser and womanizer, in her mid 30s, when motherhood clearly wasn't what she wanted to be about. I wonder where she would be now if I had ended in a miscarriage like her others, and if she'd be a happier person.

I feel this a lot as somebody who grew up as a tomboy and is still very GNC even as an adult in my late 20's. But what especially kills me is that in my experience the textbook "NLOG"s weren't the GNCs, they were always the very gender-conforming women who felt superior to other girls and had a bad case of the Queen Bee syndrome. In other words, the girls who had a lot of male orbiters validating their superiority and telling them that they're not like those other girls in hopes of getting laid. Growing up as a GNC woman men absolutely despised me because I wasn't the sexy kind of Cool Girl tomboy.

All in all the "NLOG" of GNCs is more of a "I feel like I'm garbage because I don't fulfill the stereotype of a woman" variety than the "I'm better than those dumb ditzy bimbos every other girl represents" one. I know I'm "not like other girls" but to me it's not something to feel good or proud about, it makes me regress to a level of a bullied 13-year old whenever a feminine woman looks down her nose at me and I wish I didn't have to deal with that shame all over again.

This logic implies that femininity as a concept is sexual in nature, that a woman is a fetish. As if wearing feminine clothing turns one into a sexual object.

I love how people who say that mean "the flu kills more people every year and nobody talks about it so the coronavirus isn't that bad" as if we're not told every single year about how the flu is fucking dangerous everytime there's an epidemic. Fuck these people. Fuck the people who are like "it's only old people and people with a weak immune system who can die from it so it's not actually that dangerous" like that's going to solve or prove anything. If anything I have relatives with extreme health issues who could die from this shit.

No. 519457

Coronaviruses can cause flu-like infections. And they caused the SARS outbreak. They can cause anything from something like the common cold to pneumonia. This one is similar to the flu in the sense that it really depends on the health of the infected person and whether they have access to good treatment.

Obviously I'm not saying we shouldn't care, but things like this need to be dealt with calmly because panic just makes people stupid and exacerbates everything. Freaking out is pretty much never the answer. It's a hassle when everybody is going looney tunes and hospital staff have to deal with it. Practice good hand hygiene, catch your coughs and sneezes in a tissue and then bin it and call the health authorities if you genuinely believe you might have the illness.

The reason people are panicking is because this is a new strain of an old virus and they're not 100% sure how it will affect people yet. People are being overly cautious because we can be nowadays, not because it's the end of the world. It's easier than ever to share information, spread awareness, pinpoint carriers, map out their days and isolate possibly infected people. They're doing it because it's better to be safe than sorry, at least until they discover long term effects and statistics.

Schools, public areas and offices do go on lockdown for other illnesses, such as norovirus. European hospitals will close bays with anybody infectious in them, regardless of whether or not the infection is thought to be fatal. It's a standard precaution with anything that spreads easily and they've pumped it up for coronavirus because it's new.

there's a HUGE difference between being attracted to other people and watching porn. seeing someone on the street and finding them attractive is completely harmless. you can't help if you're attracted to someone or not and if you see someone and find them attractive what's the harm?

when you actively seek out other people to look at, that's a bit different- BUT that's not even the main reason most of us have with porn. the thing about porn is that it's degrading and disgusting and warps men's view of women and sexuality. my boyfriend had super fucked up ideas of sex (like wanting me to drink used c*m out of condoms, not being able to sustain an erection, not wanting to lessen his porn intake etc). if you think a man seeing a woman on the street he thinks is pretty is the same thing as him watching "teen anal gangbang" everyday you're just a moron, sorry.

I hate modern (past 80's) Disney movies and the way they represent everything that's wrong with the western media. They're manufactured magic so to speak, created with a formula based on audience research, everything exists to sell more toys and ONLY to sell more toys. I hate the live action remakes of their old movies even more because they don't even need to be original, they can just do something they already did and play on people's nostalgia to make money. And to keep them "current" they slap superficial woke bullshit all over it such as including more black people in the crowds of 1600's France (naturally other ethnicities than black/white don't exist) and making every female character extra sassy and ~independent~ while being a paper thin shitty attempt at "fixing" old tropes that didn't even necessarily need to be fixed. But no gay people because we need those China ticket sales!

Also adults who are excited for something like Frozen 2 need to go get themselves checked for autism. It's a sequel to a children's movie. And it wasn't even a good children's movie that adults can enjoy. It was created to prolong the life span of the franchise to sell more crap.

I always wondered why I didn't like these "wholesome" memes that are created under the guise of "destroying internalized misogyny" but couldn't quite figure it out, and you explained it perfectly. It's just a continuum of the high school narrative, it's the GNC girl who just has a bad attitude and it's her own fault for being such a prejudiced hermit, these girls would like her if she just gave them a chance!!

Nope. Women can be bad people. Women can be shallow and mean. It doesn't make me less of a feminist to admit this. The vapid girls who made fun of me for being GNC were little shitheads and I don't have to forgive them for it just because someone wants to fetishize the dynamic. These girls will never be held accountable for their own implementation of misogyny against women who don't fulfill the female stereotype.

I think you're the one who misunderstood the point. What you described is how the meme is "supposed" to be seen I guess, but for someone who had to go through the shit "stacies" (Forgive my terminology) put them through it's about the bullied being accused of internalized misogyny when in reality the setup has the gender-conforming archetypal mean girls being misogynous for ostracizing a GNC girl for not being feminine enough. I think a lot of GNC farmers can relate to this and know how out of proportion the bullying can be for the simple sin of being a tomboy or just not being fashionable.

>I remember how common it was in the 00's to think 'X group of people (but especially women) bad' before they did anything bad to you, just cause they were looking like a Barbie (or a Stacy), a nerd etc. I'm glad this idea is being rejected now.

It's really not. It still happens. Even as adults you get a ton of vapid mean girls badmouthing women who are "beckies" so it's not just an imaginary hollywood high school setting that can be solved by telling the GNC representative that she should just wake up and see how ~nice~ these girls actually are.

you realize it's not only about being GNC, right? You can be different in other ways as well. I guess not because you treat this whole meme like it's meant to be about you and your bad experience with Stacies. I highly disagree. I honestly believe this meme is against girl hate and the kind of twisted mindset that the heroine of Watamote has.

TBH I think you truly do need therapy for your Stacy hate. Shitty girls bullied you, it's fair to be angry at them, you don't have to forgive. You sound like you project your issues on all feminine women and even an innocent meme which is not healthy at all.

The original meme wasn't even about shitting on Stacies cause they were cruel, just on their look and hobbies and making yourself feel better cause ~you are not liks the other girls~, so your argument makes even less sense to me.

It's a common theme in movies, but it's not real life at all. In real life, yes, the Halo Effect exist. People treat them better on account of they're super attractive. But then what this actually does for their psyche is give them the impression that most people are super nice, that the world is all sunshine and rainbows. So very early on they're socialized to be super nice in turn. You might also notice it's roughly the same phenomenon with scrotes. The ones that will treat you worst are often the low tier cave trolls with major chips on their shoulders. See ProJared, Onision, Armored Septic Tank, etc.

I don’t even mean it in a all men are trans way because I feel like it is a lot of the time not malicious, but it seems like they all see sex/ a relationship as the end goal of a friendship and do not value friendship with women as just that, a friendship. It’s been said before but men are in general really homosocial

No. 520102

nope. i’ve had men i literally have known since diaper age who have done severely fucked up shit to me of a sexual nature or just tried to get into my pants. one of them was my closest friend in the entire world and our families were literally only a few doors apart. he still got me drunk at 16 and tried to force me to suck his dick. there are no good circumstances. every man is capable of this and every one of them will do it if given the chance.

I find his (Miyazaki) movies really fucking boring. Howl's moving castle just has scenes of characters pensively staring at each other. Also that movie just rushed itself to the ending.

I can't stand how his characters cry. I don't wanna hear "B-but in animation they exaggerate and-" okay, cool, still don't like how he does it. That's more of a small nitpick.

Also didn't he once shout at a bar that there was nothing wrong with loving a 12 year old girl? did he mean the Hebephile way, cause that is a lot to unpack. A grown man should only being saying "I love my daughter" never "nothing wrong loving a 12 year old girl"

No. 520451

You seem really uninformed anon.

He intentionally writes heroines that do more than just be cute girls, he's spoken about how he wants to give girls inspiring role models. He's spoken out against Otaku culture and the unrealistic idea of girls portrayed in popular anime, and he refuses to sexualise his heroines.

What normal adult man goes "She's my girlfriend" to a drawn underage girl. not a normal one I can tell you that.

I don't expect him to be a SJW Icon. Or a feminist one. Oh good for him he spoke out against Otaku culture. big whoop! He still draws upon the same female archetype every time.

No normal guy ever says "theres nothing wrong with loving a 12 year old girl." thats not normal.

That's subjective anon but also why are you suddenly mentioning other directors?
It sounds like you want Miyazaki to be a pedophile because you hate the way ghibli draw tears and that the plots aren't your cup of tea.
You're calling him a lolicon based off of one instance of him saying he loved pic related in the 60s that you found on /ic/, but I guess that's your unpopular opinion so you're entitled to it.
I personally don't think an anecdote about waifus is enough to call him a paedophile. Nikola Tesla said he loved the imaginary dove that visited his window but I'm not out here telling everyone that his inventions are shit because he was into beastiality. Each to their own.

I don't know if you're baiting, but the movie that made him become an animator isn't exactly drawn in K-On style. It's a Chinese myth where the characters are very much adults for the majority of the story, besides the very beginning. It also came out in 1958, so Miyazaki himself would have been in high school at the time.

No idea about the bar thing, but yes, you do seem misinformed to label this guy a pedo when he liked an adult anime character in high school.

Do you have a source on this? Google isn't showing me anything. This is definitely scummy if true.

>What normal adult man goes "She's my girlfriend" to a drawn underage girl. not a normal one I can tell you that.
If you mean the screencap you posted, it doesn't sound like he still thinks of the character that way. He fixated on the character when he was an underage high schooler himself, and he described that attachment as "like being in love", saying she was a "surrogate girlfriend". If he's still that way and claims she's "his girlfriend", that's different.
I feel like you might just not like Ghibli films (valid, I'm not into them either) and you're kind of trying to find any "good" reason for it. It's okay to just find them boring, anon, lmao.

Only kind of related, but it reminded me. Didn't Walt Disney describe the girl from the end of The Jungle Book as a "sexy little girl"?
Why doesn't anyone talk about that? Seedy.
>“Another time was, we were looking at the section of The Jungle Book where the little girl comes out and gets in the water, and the little boy’s up in the tree, and he falls into the water. She senses that he’s following her, so she drops the jug after a ways, and this continues all the way up, and the boy looks back at us [the audience] and shrugs his shoulders, and then he turns around and looks at the little girl, and she wrinkles her nose up at him. That’s one of the best drawings I ever did. And Walt turned to me and said, ‘That’s a pretty sexy little girl, Ollie.’ That was the last time we ever had a meeting with him.”

No. 520513

I distinctly remember that scene being a little weird though, the way she walked/emoted might have been a little suggestive. I haven't watched it since I was a kid so I could be wrong, but that part always stuck out to me, as if she acted a lot older than she looked. Maybe Disney wasn't being a creep but giving honest feedback lol.

No. 520525

I did like some of his movies and found the others boring and not as memorable as they're often described, I'll never understand people who call his movies masterpieces and not like other anime movies and tv shows.

Not really related to your point but that's how I feel about self-proclaimed "anime fans" who only really know about Sailor Moon and some Shonen Jump series and nothing else. They're so annoying to talk to. You know, the type of people who could sperg about One Piece and Naruto by literally only talking about powerlevels and how Sakura is a turbo bitch? The description you gave suits them so well.

No. 520552


What he said about his son's movie was kind of shitty, not going to lie, but if you consider this "emotional abuse" then the majority of Japanese men his age emotionally abused their kids. Unfortunately, for better or worse, older Japanese men were way more focused on their careers than their families and are extremely harsh on their children. Their culture is a culture of work first and if you can't be GOOD at something, then don't even bother with it. He's an older Japanese man, you really can't bring Western SJW values onto him because it's a VERY different culture. You're free to not agree with it and to not agree with how their culture operates, but acting like he's some abusive scum is ridiculous.

I agree, I still like the wind rises and think Kiki is fairly cute (despite being a generic kids movie) but when I rewatched Spirited away as an older teen I just found the whole third act to be extremely rushed and I still vastly prefer Alice in wonderland.
> but that's how I feel about self-proclaimed "anime fans" who only really know about Sailor Moon and some Shonen Jump series and nothing else.
I think that's also what I was somewhat referring to, but I generally see them way more often with ghibli fans I don't even think my taste is all that obscure (my top 3 being Evangelion, Madoka and Houseki no Kuni) but all I seem to hear about is 'I'm such a huge anime fan, I watch BNHA!' it's fine if they like shounen jump, but even then they generally only like the very surface level stuff so it makes it hard to discuss things with new fans due to them never wanting to leave their comfort zone (and I personally find most shounen extremely boring).

Like yeah sometimes kids are unpredictable or can't help it (like babies on a plane or if the child has a learning difficulty) but maybe don't put other people through the misery of having to listen to it for hours. If your child throws regular tantrums at the shops, then leave it at home with your partner or shop at a time when it's at school/daycare. I know some people are going to be like 'what if it's a single mum blah blah blah' and yeah obviously she's got no choice, but I'm talking about the majority of people who allow their children to run rampant or howl.

My unpopular opinion is that people should not be allowed to have any more than 3 children. It's insane.
I love kids and want them one day but fuck the amount of mummy bloggers that have over 4 kids and complain about having no free time. Plus this sounds autistic and clinical but I believe unless you live in a rural farm town with strict religion, it's impossible to raise a large family of sound quality humans. I came from a huge family and although I did my best at school, I could have achieved more with a tutor or even more one on one time with my parents. I was lost amongst a number.

Why do you try and ham-fist this porn thing into everything? You can just not find someone attractive, it doesn’t have to pathologised. Plus, do you really think the average people in porn look better than Adriana Lima to even ‘desensitise’ someone

No. 522065

Most porn stars aren't even traditionally pretty, they're usually an average 5/10 with a bunch of fake eyelashes and makeup to achieve a gentrifying look for men.
Lima is like an average 6/10 despite being a high class super model. It's not preconceptions from porn, its preconceptions from women that have seen very high standard beauty models with natural or surgically supplemented 10/10 features. Lima just has potatoey/ doughy features that dont appeal to us.

No. 522073

NTA and I think Adriana Lima is beautiful, but what a weird thing to assume, seriously. Are people not allowed to have different tastes without being assumed to be porn-sick coomers? You don't even know what anon thinks is attractive yet you jump to the conclusion her tastes have been changed by porn.

Kind of on a similar note, I don't understand how some people keep up with these types of untranslated franchises. Feels like you have to keep up with several different people all translating different things on several different blogs. I think it's too much work and too much of a time investment.
I know some people who will play an untranslated mobile gacha game every day and then go hunting for translations for some event that happened last week. It's always for some bland idol/otome game too, there are plenty of idol/otome games that are officially translated so I don't understand why they don't play one of those instead.

my last bf was autistic and it has nothing to do with social skills (which he had good social skills, worked in customer service etc). it was about the fact that when we got in fights he just broke down and REFUSED to see my point of view or even try. oh he also had piss poor communication skills and didn't try to express his feelings in a healthy way which you NEED in a relationship. my dad is the same way. though my dad was never actually diagnosed as autistic. although I believe "emotional intelligence" is a load of bullcrap and is basically big five trait agreeableness which is easier to understand.

I think it's because men on the internet are constantly shitting on women for not being zero-empathy spergs.

Nah, it's just low empathy is something that is really fucking common in men. To the point where it seems like most men have a very subtle form of autism. A lot of them just can't relate to others at all or can't be assed to, can't see from other people's point of view, and have little to no self-awareness. So pretty much what >>522411 said.

How? I literally thought it was a new BL game when I first saw it. Turns out it's actually some Drama CD collection or something, no actual substance at all.

I agree to this and I think people spewing the male brain vs female brain have part of the guilt of people trooning out. If a man has slighly more empathy than the average male and he believes this bullshit he may start to believe he actually has a female brain which is plain dumb. Also there's lots of women with bad social skills but we're forced into this "women are nurturing" meme and many many women end up stuck with children and manchildren husbands because they buy into it.

#metoo-Weinstein level accusations from young female associates. The fucking #2 was facing rape charges no less and hush money was generously distributed to keep victims silent.

I also recounted on our internal board a few incidents and immediately got an HR email that they wanted to "investigate", lol. I had the pleasure to respond that I already raised 3 HR complaints in 2017 and their response was "didn't you provoke this" so no fuck you guys.

It’s stupid when they say ‘women should have a place to vent about men online!’ Because if we’re being real what this site was actually made for is literally picking apart mentally ill women and archiving their worst moments and essentially ruining their lives… if you feel women need a place online for radical feminism/pink pill or whatever this couldn’t be a less appropriate place

Sure Ok !

- in my teenage year there was this "invocation game" where you would call a spirit called Diana (not related to the princess at all). Someone would kneel in front of you reciting the incantation and asking the spirit to lift your arms. Two people had to stand on your sides. You had to close your eyes. One of my friend did it on me - I did feel my arms lift but that was definitely just the power of suggestion. I tried it on my sister, forgot to mention the lift arm bit to her and she did not have the same effect.

- one night with friends, we watch this horror movie bloody mary. Supposedely if you turn on yourself 3 times calling bloody mary at a mirror, at the light of only a candle in a bathroom, she will appear in the mirror. I tried it and you guessed it, nothing appeared. I had a friend who said she tried at home and saw a figure. I put it down to trick played by light/shadow and her own state - self convinced and scared on her own.
- supposedly we lived in a haunted house with my family - man died of horrific long disease in a bed in the house. My brother claimed he saw an old man walking around, other people kept telling us they saw "a figure". There was 7 of us at home, we all lived there at the time, could be anyone of us at anytime.
- re haunted house : dad worked night shift and would go to bed earlier than us. Once woke up and bolted in a room where all my 4 siblings and I were watching some movie. He said one of us came into his room to speak and woke him up. He was kinda mad, needed his sleep. Sure dad but we were all together all that time so no. I think he was just dreaming, he always have vivid nightmare (he has ptsd from war soooooo).
- re haunted house : only me, my sister and mum at home. Mum is upstairs doing her hair. We are downstairs in the garage playing with the cat. She calls us suddenly, shaken and scared. She asked why we are playing a prank on her, we're nasty kid blah blah. She heard a moan that sounded like someone in deep pain and thought we were trying to scare her. It was certainly not us. We live in a semi detached house sooooo I guess noise travel a lot. We have old sick neighbours, might be them
- after so many supposedly weird things, my brother, who loves to scare us, decides to hold a ouija type seance one night. Parents are out and he babysits. We do a makeshift board and call whatever spirit my brother believes is there. The makeshift planchet (a piece of wood), does move. Anyone of us could have moved it though and claim it wasn't them. I think brother was just trying to get us entertained lol. Letters spelled don't make any sense.

That's what I can think of on top of my head. I've plenty more occurrences/experiences, first and second hand but I always seem to find explanations for it all.

I've had the same experience with female aspies, really can't say the same for male aspies though.

One male aspie that I worked with confided in me that he was on a suspended sentance for child porn. His parents payed for a professional to write up a letter on how his aspergers made him 'not understand' that child porn was bad. He was highly secretive about it for years and in contact with other cp lovers online. He also had a sister who was sexually abused as a child and witnessed the affect that had on her and his family..

Some are actually not that bad. I had a friend in high school who had it but he was actually kind of sweet. If he didn't understand something he would ask "why do you feel that way?", take a long time to think about it, and then repeat it back to make sure he understood. He realized he had a problem and actually made an effort to think through things and try to understand people. Only thing was that he was hard to talk to. If the topic wasn't about his specific interest he wouldn't know what to say. And when he'd talk about his interest he'd go very in-depth without realizing most people didn't really care to know. He was a good person though.

Yeah alongside the years of actual blackface. People don’t remember but even though he acts sorry now, when he was first called out in 2014 he was so hostile and aggressive about it to people who confronted him and sent hate mobs their way, he couldn’t have been less thoughtful or apologetic. I guess his crippling empathy for some reason didn’t kick in for the people of colour who were genuinely hurt

We all are basically so not exactly unpopular

This guy has always been trash and his humor is non-existent. He used to do these cheap, trashy, offensive skits but once his popularity started to decline he went for the humble, self-deprecating personality…but literally anyone with more than one brain cell can tell how disingenuous and narcissistic this man is.
He was smart enough to reinvent himself and make himself seem relatable to his young insecure audience.

European beauty standards should not be applied to other races of women. it is important for everyone to be familiar with the cultural information of their ancestors & see what they found to be beautiful, and emulate those patterns.

a good example would be bollywood, you see in India Punjabi's make up less then 2% of the countries population but they are super overrepresented in nearly media and Miss India pageants, hell even the British considered them to be the most "superior" Indian race because they were slightly skinned and a bit taller then other Indian ethnic groups

I don't know why but I can't stand unnatural eyelashes, whether it's heavy mascara, false lashes or whatever else is done to accentuate them. They gross me out. I'd rather look at pubes

stand up comedy isn't funny. Like I'm able to see why its 'funny' and can see when a joke is well constructed but I'm never going to die laughing at a standup show, I think it's the context that ruins it for me, kind of like how if you know someone's going to tickle you you're not ticklish anymore as oppose to when you're caught off guard

I had an ex who loved stand up comedy so for a while we had a habit of watching it together. Now as a person with abuse in my past I had avoided it before that as certain jokes are too close to home. Over the space of a few weeks I literally heard > my eccentric uncle fucked me in my ass as little a kid
Over and over again. I have an uncle in prison for that exact reason and tbh by the 4th time hearing the joke I was less triggered and more disappointed in the lack of original jokes by these men

I feel like the best comedy is when two people are bantering because its so much more natural and creative, and it isn't one sole narc guy who thinks he's hilarious for dickbutt jokes and feels entitled to a whole room laughing.

Think of "Whose Line Is it Anyway" - a bunch of people bouncing off each other was the funniest thing on tv while it lasted. I think stand-up would improve so much if it were comprised of duos or trios. Unfortunately its the same recycled potty jokes by guys who have never been told that they arent funny. Even Jeff Dunham has puppets to bounce off of and now he's one of the biggest names in comedy.

Yeah I get that narc vibe off a lot of male comedians

Not as extreme, but it bothers me how in Ru Paul even problematic catch phrases are used again and again until they have no meaning but are expected to still be funny.
There is a repeated joke about being abandoned at a bus stop which was taken from the real history of a contestant that was abandoned. Bringing it up once or twice was ok for shock factor but now they use it almost like a pun. There's nothing dark or edgy about the way that show makes jokes about sex workers, violent relationships or drug use, it's just disturbing how these things become watered down catchphrases for tween girls to buy on teeshirts.
