In continuation of the last discussion. I really don't think GP's should be able to diagnose depression and anxiety. I get it, they are two mental illnesses that don't really need a lot of digging into in order to diagnose someone with them, but that's not the point.

I had a horrible experience when I got diagnosed with "severe depression". I went in thinking I might have dysthymia, and I was told by people that it's ok to go in and advocate and say that you feel like you have a certain issue. When I told the doctor, they literally went "wow, big word" almost to belittle me. He handed me his phone and made me answer questions, and the results came up saying I was "severely depressed". It just didn't make sense to me. Yeah I'm depressed but I get up every day and function fairly well. Anyways, he threw pills at me. I even said that I felt like it was too quick for that and he just went "then see a therapist on the side". I took it out of ignorance. I experienced horrible side effects and went off of the pills after a month. It took me forever to work up to courage to go back hoping for another GP who eventually agreed that I have dysthymia and anxiety issues. I told her the pills didn't work, and she told me the amount I was put on was insane and that I should look into therapy first.

I really think there needs to be mental health certified/focused GP's, if they are going to be able to prescribe medication and diagnose patients. I felt so bad about myself that first visit. That could have easily set off someone in a really bad place.

Thread OP here. I noticed it was the 33rd Unpopular Opinions thread and thought I recalled 33 having something to do with freemasonry. I didn't have an idea for a thread image yet, so I googled "33 freemason" and that was one of the first images that came up, which I thought looked pretty neat as a design and would tie in the thread title with the thread image. I respect other thread-making anons, but the boring Twitter memes/cute animal memes/random 4chan memes for thread images were tiring.

Unpopular opinion on OP pics, but I like when anons choose random inexplicable shit that might not make sense.

Part of me wants to blame it on corona-chan, but even pre-rona a lot of cows "milk" boiled down to "x says dumb shit on twitter" or "x posts stupid shit on insta". Dunno if it's because of cancel culture being a thing, so new cows feel more obligated to pretend to be functioning human beings, or because crazier cows seem to be in much more niche communities. Part of me also thinks a lot of oldfags who would put in effort to communicate with cows and gather milk themselves seem to have left/lurk now, since most of the 'milk' some cows get are just twitter screenshots, or reposts from kiwi.

I agree, though K-pop skinny is popular and accepted. It seems like the thing right now is "petite and cute, while still remaining soft and not having much bone outline in the face or body" skinny, as opposed to the "long and lanky heroin chic with prominent bone outlines on the face/body and muscle" skinny from the past.
Either way, it's kind of lame to base the kind of body you like or want for yourself on what's popular, lmao.

That's the point. They're skinny, but they have softness to their bodies. Hip pads and breast pads so their bodies look natural and "healthy" instead of wasted.
90s/2000s thin was about being lean to the bone and muscular. All sharp edges, all bone, no softness or else it's "gross baby fat".
Think of it as feminine vs masculine (or androgynous). Think about why they wear that padding. It's not for nothing, the intended image and effect is completely different.
You kind of have to be aesthetically blind to not see the difference between this and the 5'11 rail-thin models on 90s runways.
Not all skinny is the same. Sorry, anon.

not to mention it spawned dozens of fake accounts spewing similar accusations with no evidence to corroborate it. op detracted and said they were almost all fakers, a different account alleged to be a different girl proceeded to post "evidence" pic of the shirt allegedly belonging to the guy she was supposedly referring to, alongside a selfie of him wearing a shirt in the same color? it's so confusing. there's no way to keep up with all the involved accounts, whether they are real or fake. this is all reminiscent of the fake string of fanfic accusations that came out after a few scummy men were me too'd (justifiably) this year on the western side of things.

No. 625318

The difference is the kpop girls are shorter than the models. The thing is, both of them could be the same weight but the '90/2000s' models you detest so much are taller and have larger bone structure, whereas the kpop girls are shorter and have smaller bones and therefore would look 'softer' since their fat wouldn't cling onto anything. They still starve themselves to death in order to be thin so i don't even know what these tards are being preachy about.

That’s what I’m saying… obviously you want it because it tangibly benefits you. I have zero emotional attachment to my physical appearance. I think how I look says absolutely nothing about me and that I have so much more going for me than how I look. However, as someone who’s been on both sides of the spectrum I also know that that’s not really how the world works. My decision to look attractive is because I know it will benefit me and that’s it. If I was never considered beautiful again I wouldn’t care on a personal level but I know that would affect the way the world treats and interacts with me. I’m going to use whatever resources I have to improve my life/ make day to day life easier and I just view my appearance as one of those things.

I don't get the hype behind most true crime podcasts. To me, murder isn't that interesting of a topic because anyone can kill given the right opportunity. I don't think it means much. I also feel like they promote the idea that killers are everywhere, which is annoying to me. There's also this forced spooky/quirky aspect of it among fans.

If you aren't in a good place mentally, spiritually or financially, you should not have kids. I don't care if you're 38 and the biological clock is about to run out. Don't have kids.

I agree 100% but it's no surprise people have kids when they shouldn't when the popular narrative is that not having kids means you'll live a miserable lonely spinster life, and the assumption is that all women are born to be mothers and will regret it if they aren't. You'd think the countless abused, neglected and abandoned children out there would change that narrative but nope, it's either have kids or be judged and pitied the rest of your life. Infuriating.

No. 625731

NTA, but in the western world most pregnancies are planned and avoidable, and a good portion of the western population has access not only to the resources used to prevent conception but also the resources (conditionally, it admittedly isn't an easy process) to get an abortion or to get a surgical procedure which will render one infertile. Anon's sentiment shouldn't apply to the entire world, but those who do have access to those resources and choose to have a child only to not adequately raise the child or to complete about being a parent are (subjectively, of course) making an unwise and immoral decision that warrants judgement, in that they are bringing another life into the world that they aren't ready to care for or don't want to care for.

No. 625735

Samefag - I guess an unpopular opinion of mine is that communal parenting is the optimal form of parenting, and members of every culture should raise and care for every child around them as if it's their own. This would solve a lot of issues, particularly for families and children who experience a lack of financial stability or economic opportunity, have a parent who becomes incapacitated, or need to be taken care of by others because their parent was impregnated against their will and wanted to get contraceptives and/or an abortion but didn't have access to the necessary resources. I agree with >>625707, too, and it's part of the reason why I don't plan to have children. I have to take the personal responsibility for the fact that due to my own flaws and inabilities I would not be a good enough parent to any child.

I had problems with finding a therapist because so many specialize in children, i even said fuck it and went to one of these but she seemed to hate my guts and dropped me. Even as a teen it was really hard to get psychiatric help because the resources were all for young kids, waiting for hours and hours to see a psych as a suicidal 14yo surrounded by schizophrenic autistic and hyper children who knew no boundaties was hard.

Transwomen who transition when they are kids (under the age of 14) are not the same as adult transwomen. Adult transwomen usually transition because they're horny but young ones do because they have retarded parents.

Totally get that a lot of us including myself get more cynical with age, but people who become more judgmental or close minded are just kind of psycho to me, that or extremely sheltered/privileged. When I see homeless people, people living in trailer homes, people addicted to drugs, I can sympathize and understand that it could happen to anyone raised around the wrong people or anyone who made one stupid mistake. None of these examples apply to me in any way and I'll never come close to experiencing those things, yet I don't judge them . I used to when I was little, but not anymore.

I always get a lot of flack for this opinion. But it's not hard to identify an abusive/shitty person. I think the narrative that "abusive people are really manipulative, it's hard to tell" is just so false, they're all glib in the same ways and all hold the same unwarranted self importance. I understand if you were abused as a child and have issues, gravitating towards shitty men for that reason.

Like, what was the point of that? Or once, someone was venting that their dog went missing and that they were staying up every night literally vomiting worried sick about them , and someone went off on them for allowing it to happen. The anon responded saying it happened when someone was watching her dog for her while she was away, and then the other anon goes "stop adding to the story to justify shit".

But do you guys realize they're like that because of the abuse going on during the relationship? Not to mention any possible prior abuse, mental illnesses or even just being insecure. I'm really not trying to pick a fight, but obviously women in abusive relationships who chose to stay or have a pattern of being with abusive men are not of mentally ok. The first anon literally said the woman was codependent on her bf. Plus the fact that sometimes the abuser can hold things over the victims head (money or blackmail for example). I feel like there's to much that goes into these abusive relationships to just say "well why doesn't she leave or stop dating guys who are abusive".

I think it's strange you guys think a woman of sound mind would chose to stay in relationships with abusive men. They obviously have bad judgement.

Having bad judgement, being insecure etc would be a ‘character flaw/personal failing’ though. And it’s not that simple that it just magically all starts because of the relationship, like I feel like if you would even allow yourself to be in a position where someone can hold money over you head to blackmail you that’s extremely stupid on your end. It doesn’t make them any less victims but there’s definitely things they could have and should have done differently to prevent it. The majority of people in abusive relationships are not mentally ill to that extent where they’re incapable of being responsible for their actions and decisions.

Idk which op you're talking about but I don't think my post is what any of those anons were saying. If I'm wrong though, then my bad.
>>626764
Again though, this all happens cause these women are not of sound mind. I didn't say that they "magically" gain those issues because of the relationship. Yes, sometimes women have issue BEFORE they enter an abusive relationship, and that contributes to the fact that they pick horrible men. And after the relationship they usually have more issues than before.

No. 626768

>>626755
I think it’s weird that if someone kept entering and staying in friendships where they were being abused everyone would rightfully call them an idiot and question why a grown adult would keep making these decisions but when it’s a woman in an abusive relationship we’re supposed to just never question it and coddle them about how they ‘never could have known’ and that ‘there’s nothing they could have done’ when there almost always was something that could be done.

No. 626770

>>626767
Okay but in most cases of people ‘not being in sound mind’ unless they’re like clinically insane people still consider them responsible for their own actions and decisions. Most women and people in general do, have, or will struggle with mental illness in some capacity and most still don’t enter abusive relationships. There is obviously some degree of personal responsibility and personal failure in these women’s actions.

No. 626773

>>626764
In my experience there's usually some fucked up self-hate thing going on where she can semi-subconsciously tell the guy will be abusive that's why she chooses to date him because she has low self-esteem. If you try and set her up with a guy who's not an obvious shithead she's not interested since she lowkey thinks she doesn't deserve a non-painful relationship. Same goes for men who can't stop dating women with cluster-b personality disorders over and over again. They p much seek these partners out. Almost like outsourcing self-harm. Sad stuff. When I lose my patience is when kids are involved though.

No. 626786

Shut the fuck up. Holding women who aren't clinical retards accountable for their own acts of self-harm isn't victim blaming. No one is saying victim deserved abuse. I'm tired of the victims are innocent angels who can do no wrong narrative. I'm fucking tired of women who crawl back to her abusive scrote for the literal 15th time and we all have to pretend that she isn't complicit in her own suffering. Women who stay in abusive relationships have high likelihood of imparting generational trauma onto her children. Fuck my mom for thinking a narc's approval was more important than her children's well being.

So many of the abusive/toxic/shit person red flags are plain as day, especially online. I really do think some folks only put up with abusive people for as long as they do because they like the attention or are romance sick by shitty media that tells them that they're only doing it because they wub them. People throw away their integrity for the pettiest reasons. I knew a guy that knowingly entered a sexually exploitative relationship with a known abuser simply because they were in the same fandom and shared a fetish.

Some people are so starved for affection and attention that they'll knowingly kowtow to abuse just to pick at the scraps of 'love' they get afterward. It's a win-win for them. On one end, they get to be seen as the blameless victim and never called out for their lack of self-esteem. On the other, they still get to sop up the few crumbs of validation their abusive partner throws their way. Even when the relationship ends, they'll either go on to another abuser or sabotage a relationship with a good person because they aren't used to not being treated like shit.

Men are opportunistic and will change their 'preferences' based on what fuels their ego. They'll always loudly exclaim how much they wanna fuck conventionally attractive so-and-so or how they'd never fuck ugly so-and-so in public, but come clean in private. Case in point, dusty guys that clown women's selfies in their comments, but then slide into their DMs.

Ment's tastes in sexual partners are largely performative. They just want to show off how sexually valuable they are for the homeboys to cope with the fact that men overall are the real pick mes.

I always think this, like in pretty much every situation it’s the guy pursuing the girl. Even though I get the sentiment, I feel like all the ‘hope you get picked’ stuff gives the illusion that it’s men who hold the power in relationships in this regard when they don’t really have any. Even the most desperate girl is probably the one being pursued and not the other way round.

I was like this when my mum was beating me throughout my childhood/teen years. My brother did drugs and was always in trouble so that was my connection with drugs.

It wasn't until I was settle in a job and living on my own and took myself to Amsterdam when I experienced drugs. I suffer bad anxiety and depression because of my adoloscence and someone recommended me weed. So I tried it where it was legal and it was life changing. Now I use at home where its illegal. No one would know I take it unless I tell them. I think it depends on the mindset of why people use drugs. Some want escapism and some people want help. Everyone is an individual.

Men get shit on for having no standards and fucking anything that will give them the time of day. Rightly so. But I've realized just as many women have zero standards.

Every day on any number of boards, social media and all that, I see women saying, "Omg my bf is so perfect and I adore him except for the teeny tiny fact that he beats me/calls me a dumbass/fucked my best friend/steals my money/jerks off to porn all day/is a slob and lets me mommy him. But I love him so much how can we work it out!??!"

Women are legitimately asking these questions as if they deserve a microsecond of consideration. If that's what they want to settle for, they lack self respect as much as men who fuck STD-ridden troglodytes, but at least guys get what they want and move on. The women keep enduring abuse because they're THAT desperate for even the smallest measure of affection. We're on a board fucking dedicated to the worst of womankind, yet so many people here seem to have a mental disconnect and believe women are morally superior somehow.

Nah. The majority of people on this entire planet are desperate and dumb as fuck, regardless of sex. Everyone needs to love themselves more or some shit.

Yeah but the difference is men have their asses kissed from the moment they were born and told they deserve a model for having a nice personality, and yet they still have low standards.

What world do you live in? Obviously I agree the social/physical (pregnancy) repercussions of casual sex are harsher for women but some older man after having a slew of casual relationships expecting a ‘virgin Stacy’ would be a laughing stock to any woman and most men outside of manosphere online spaces. Normal men find virgin women older than 20 pretty weird anyway it’s not particularly a desirable thing and it’s even a dealbreaker for some of them. I feel like so much of what women say about ‘men‘ here is often only applicable to like men on /r9k/ and sound like they’ve never met a man irl in their life.

never usually get into this because it seems genuinely unpopular, but from what i've seen, truly actually genetically blessed + cultured + well groomed, well bathed men (especially in past decades, i feel like younger men today overall look shittier and aren't as "well made" kek) truly do physically look their best in their 30s. i do not like how juvenile men in their 20s, and god forbid literal teenage boys look, plus they are not mentally matured at all typically. a very small amount seem to physically look the best even in their early 40s. but i also think women look the best in their early 30s so it's not that i think uwu old men so hawt women hit the wall XDD i guess i just prefer more chiseled matured faces, more stable people and i'm just not into the overly youthful look on anyone when it comes to being actually sexually attracted to them. i'm also not a teenager so i cannot stomach the thought of finding any 16-19 year olds of any gender "hot" or sexually desirable. and to clarify again, i'm not talking about your typical ugly beerbelly losers, my comments about men strictly apply to above average, aware of their appearance, well educated non hopeless males (which i know are very scarce, but i've seen a few.)

This reminded me of my ex and his weirdly relaxed attitude to spreading vomiting bugs. I woke up one Xmas morning a few years back and said goodbye to him as he was heading to his parents house with his son to celebrate the holidays. I had planned on going to see my own family but within an hour of waking I was hit with the worst stomach bug I've ever had. Spent Xmas day and two more days after that alone and camped out on the bathroom floor unable to even keep water in me. Both ends, glorious. I texted him to let him know and for the first day he somehow read that description and thought I was exaggerating and that I simply had anxiety type nausea??

After a couple days he was due to come home bringing the son too and I told him I was still very symptomatic and afraid I was contagious. I advised he stay with his parents a couple more days and said I'd disinfect everything in our apartment once I was feeling better and before his return…but nope he came home early with the son. The three of us shared one bathroom.. he even took a long shower one day and let me nearly knock the door down in desperation before he came out

His son (12) woke up with pain in his stomach the next morning and rather than heading to the bathroom he came in to wake us up, tell us about it and then he proceeded to projectile vomit all over our bed. The next day he was still having symptoms but felt well enough to go out to a cafe and an arcade with the dad…? The day after that he had symptoms still and the dad dropped him back to his moms house where his other siblings including a 3 year old all caught it and were in bits for a week. I have no idea why it's so hard to just prevent spreading something like a stomach bug in particular. Stay home and let it fucking pass. Who even wants to risk public vomiting or shitting yourself? I was happy to isolate myself for a week and see it through alone

Your ex is so fucking stupid holy shit.

Despite me being a turbo virgin. I had to argue with her for 20 minutes so she could test me like I was in a cop show and the test took less than a minute and showed I had a stomach bug and THEN she said that oh, actually yes there is an epidemic right now in our city. She was going to send me back to work where I would have contaminated hundreds of people in just one day.

Anecdotal experience here but before covid (mandatory masks everywhere), I was getting sick at my office job at least once a month. A particularly annoying senior woman in the cubicle next to mine was always sniffling and claiming "allgeries" but I was always getting sick.

Ever since masks, I haven't been sick in several months since. Dare I say,the best streak in my adult life.

The Cuties movie is very well made, and describes a reality that most people have their heads in the sand about, especially in France amongt young immigrant girls where it's either hypersexualisation from a young age or rigorist religious thinking. None of the sexual scenes re shown with any indulgence.

I am not any of those anons but my main criticism of the movie is that the director felt the need to provide too many visuals to add shock value to the movie. all of those shock value scenes are very easy to use in place of better storytelling or narrative and just show that she's a poor director. it's basically the equivalent of a rape scene, it's useless and spoonfeeds the audience into understanding that x is bad. i also think the scenes needed to be more viscerally uncomfortable.

I never grew up in banlieues but my parents were always incredibly strict, if I told them in primary school I was hanging out with male classmates during recess they'd lose their shit and my father would call me and my sisters whores sometimes for no reason. They're not even extreme Muslims, they're just weird about girls just living their lives in a normal way.

I was always aware of how fucked up the internet is because I grew up with teachers warning us about very real issues like how giving too much info about your personal life and real identity can get you in trouble with stalkers, pedophiles, and later on with you bosses at work but I was such a dumb repressed teen I learned English just so I could read super vulgar slash fics and talk to other nerds on livejournal. Now the internet is so normalized that kids and teenagers don't receive that education anymore, I guess it's up to totally clueless parents to teach them online etiquette and how to stay safe.

I don't know if I will 100% relate to the main characters but with how little accurate and respectful representation French girls and women of African origins get in French media I don't care anymore, I want to see more stuff about us. Putain ça y est, je parle comme une SJW maintenant mdr…

“Popcorn munching audiences” aren’t going to sit and watch an intense emotional movie about hypersexualization of childhood because it’s uncomfortable and not enjoyable. Might as well tell real stories and not have to have children making vulgar, pedobait displays to get the point across. Violence, adult sexual abuse, rape/sexploitation films and “disturbing cinema” as a genre involve depictions of adults who know what they’re portraying. There are other ways to tell these stories without putting actual children in inappropriate hypersexual situations. Mute the movie and watch them dance though ♥

BDD fags are worse than BPD ones.

They keep fishing for compliments and asking about their appearance but if you say one thing thats not positive they will start bawling about how ugly they are and that they should kill themselves because they are so ugly, and then you need to tell them they are oh so gorgeous for like three hours.

The wig trend is so stupid and doesn’t work for most people. Even some good quality wigs look terrible and noticeable.

People are too quick to assume that anybody who is abusive has a personality disorder. When it comes to personality disorders, the behavior should be the same across all contexts, not just one or a few. As in, your "narcissistic" ex should treat everybody just as poorly as he treated you in order to truly be a narcissist. If that isn't the case, then he's probably just a big bitch with unaddressed mommy issues, I'm sorry to say.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to excuse abuse, but I'm so goddamn sick of arm chair psychologists and cheesy online life coaches going around claiming that anyone who has ever been through an abusive relationship is dealing with a narcissist or a psychopath. Butthurt men who claim their "crazy" ex-gfs had BPD are no better.

I thought this about the trailer but then I watched the movie on netflix and some scenes are a bit questionable- like twerking on a security guard so he'd let them past.

I don't think it was meant to sexualize kids and I don't think their target audience was pedos but in a sad turn of events it's kinda gone that way.

I feel really bad for the girls in it, not only have they been shoved in the centre of an entirely inappropriate debate about sexualization of minors but they've pretty much lost their acting careers now. Poor gals just wanted to be movie stars and now this has happened to them.. I think they're going to be very angry when they're teenagers and realise what's been done to them.

I agree with the opinion but the example with the narcissistic ex is shit as narcissists can be very charming to many people but shitty to a particular person (especially partners). They need the majority of people to think they’re great so they’re usually not going to abuse everyone. Also they have to be careful in picking their victims as many people will tell them to fuck off and induce their narc meltdowns

‘Narcissistic’ doesn’t necessarily equate to saying someone has NPD though, it’s not intrinsically linked to the mental illness like saying “they’re so OCD” is

You have a point. Apparently NPD can actually be hard to peg because some are very covert like that and able to mask their behavior around some people and not others.

Sometimes shock value does work. The movie is both incredibly uncomfortable to watch and very relatable and true to life. It shows why and how hypersexualization is attractive to little girls, especially from this social class, while still condemning it and showing how damaging it is. What did you want ? Tasteful fade-to-blacks when they are dancing ? The director got her idea from the movie seeing little girls dancing like that. Not including it in the movie makes no sense.

I think there can be valid criticism of the movie and how the film was made, but not if you actually haven't seen the movie and are just pearl-clutching. You can't understand a movie by jus watching the two scenes on Twitter.

I can see how some people thought the movie was too indulgent. Many of the dancing scenes are filmed like a music video, with the lingering shots, etc. But especially in the last scene, it's clearly interspaced with shots of the young actresses not being in control of the situation, and that juxtapostion creates the discomfort in the viewer in a very explicit way and I think convey the message extremely well. The actresses are brilliant and the whole movie rests on their shoulders.

If you want to know how the young actresses were treated, they were all followed by a psychologist and had numerous discussions about hypersexualization with the director, according to her. Also the actresses are teens, not pre-teens.

I agree to some extent. It doesn't make it right ofc, but it's normalised. I think the issue comes in when it's adults putting children in this position under the guise of awareness. If they're simply inept when it comes to handling the topic delicately, they still have to accept responsibility.

The biggest problem with Cuties is that men are able to watch it, IMO. All the issues stem from the fact that pedophiles are getting off to it either way, ignoring the message and intent. I "understood" it, and some parts hit close to home emotionally and culturally, but it's just not something that can be shown to a wide audience.

I think we all know that, but it's annoying when you can barely see yourself in media and pop culture so the closest thing is watching movies and TV shows about other people in another continent with many small but important differences just because you can draw a parallel. And French people in general has a love-hate relationship with the USA, it's really nothing personal. On twitter the main complaint from French people I've seen in the whole controversy around Cuties is that Americans have mini-miss contests and if anything they should be able to draw parallels between the movie and their own pop culture instead of shitting on the movie like that shit doesn't happen in both countries. Let's be real, both countries have flaws when it comes to how children are treated.

>>628388
I heard there's barely any north africans in the USA and they're technically considered white because of some census bullshit so if they face discrimination they can't legally do shit about it.

This is a terrible opinion! How can mac and cheese be dry…too many breadcrumbs? Would also recommend adding mustard and using some mild cheddar for a more complex flavor profile. Absolutely one of my favorite foods.

It's backward to make your child pay rent to live with you.
If you don't want them living with you, actually help them find a place to live, and a job. If they're going to uni, there's also no reason not to financially support them. If you don't see having children as a lifelong commitment, you shouldn't reproduce.
The only occasion where it makes sense to kick your kids out is if they're actively destructive, or if they already have enough money to make a living.

The outrage over that Cuties film from Americans is really hypocritical given how much children are sexualized there, as well as the rampant pedophilia in the upper classes. Americans should fix their own child abuse/exploitation problems before complaining about a film made in a different country. It makes me laugh how upset they get about it.

As a girl who grew up in a strict Muslim household, the film hit me in a very specific way. I can empathize a lot with parts of it.

Of course, I still agree that the film was gratuitous at times with the children in it, and they were certainly not old enough or mentally developed enough to consent to being depicted in the way that they were depicted. But it is really hilarious to see the American government be outraged by it when probably half of the people in charge are pedophiles or have personal relationships with pedophiles.

I do not recall any of these having such a huge backlash. Those forms of media just allow this sexualization to exist. Charli D'Amelio has been featured on talk shows, and Jake Paul is just dismissed as some idiot youtuber. This film at least makes a point about it - it's a story about social acceptance when coming from a conservative background, and the emotional turmoil that results from that, as well as the fact that this particular group of young girls who are at the cusp of being adolescents are so eager to "adult" themselves that the only way that they can bond is through acting like full-grown women, which they obviously are not.

QAnon believers may have something to do with it, but the vocal hatred of the film was quite literally spearheaded by the American "Parents Television Council", an organization founded in 1995 by a conservative Christian activist specifically to target "inappropriate" and "not family friendly" material on a mass scale, several times a year.

>The council launches several media campaigns a year against the producers and advertisers of television programs they perceive to be indecent. A typical campaign involves press releases declaring a particular program harmful (often with a list of "unacceptable" character behavior or situations), the organized mass mailing of form letters and emails to advertising sponsors of unapproved programs, organized mass filing of complaints via the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) website complaint form, and direct threats of long, potentially costly FCC license challenges to local network affiliates planning to broadcast what the council considers harmful network programming.

Same. This movie was great in showing how some kids are growing up adapting their lives through oversexualized pop culture and social media attention. Like I found it funny how they used a move that was popular in the WAP dances. I’ve honestly seen kids doing so much crazy shit like that to the point I’m concerned for the new generations and their upbringing. The movie was a refreshing view of those dangers and the disturbing parts were kinda necessary to make you understand how far it can go. But I understand why people are uncomfortable with the actresses having to actually do those dances and be presented to a wide audience on Netflix. Idk maybe I’m too desensitized to really be that shocked

There's nothing wrong with finding the movie inappropriate; it is. But to take such offence to it and not the countless other ways that children are exploited in America is hypocrisy.

I haven't seen the movie but throughout all this discussion I just keep thinking, isn't the footage that horrifies normal people going to be the exact same imagery that titillates pedos? I feel like there's inherently a catch 22 about the whole thing, it would be difficult to disturb people with reality if you also want to avoid appealing to sickos.

Of course I'm assuming the filmmakers had good intentions and wanted to convey a message, not just get attention with shock value and controversy.

>the fallacy of relative privation

I get what you're saying, I'm sure there's virtue signalling taking place as there's always those kinds of people. But I've watched society degrade over the past decades and am concerned about all of those things. This movie although thinly veiled as an insight into childhood sexualisation literally sexualises the actresses at the behest of profiting adults. Children on tiktok are secondarily groomed into sexualising themselves by watching older, more popular accounts. Which is obviously sad, and wrong (their parents should be monitoring them more). But Cuties was written by adults, for children to portray content that far surpasses their age group, which they are barred from watching themselves despite having a role in the film.

Just because children aren't necessarily as innocent as they once were doesn't mean we should lay on the adult concepts thick so they can do our activism for us. Exposing children to sexual concepts at a young age is exactly how grooming functions and it is literally in the very definition of CSA. Why is that morally acceptable because the premise of the movie allegedly seeks to condemn the phenomena? The outcome is still the same regardless of what strings you attach. You can't disavow pedophila whilst making fap material for pedophiles, nor can you deny responsibility for compromising children for the sake of a message.

The fact this movie is even available to a large audience is indicative of the times. (And yes, I understand if children weren't growing up so fast the film wouldn't physically exist. I just don't think we should give up on innocence in its entirety, or simply because concepts that should have been handled delicately weren't). The end doesn't justify the means.

No. 630016

I think people should get their news from multiple sources no matter what the subject is. People usually say "just pick a news outlet you can trust that aren't biased" but in my opinion that's not good enough because you're still only looking in one specific place. Maybe I'm just highly skeptical on things like this but I always go to different sources to check how consistent the details are and stuff like that. The news makes people gullible and lazy, you gotta rely on yourself to do your own research.

Why do people think the solution is to ban the film only?
Why aren't there any petitions to keep children off Tik Tok, IG, etc? Or ban child beauty pageants, put a severe clamp on the child modelling industry, end Toddlers and Tiaras and Dance Moms, call for stricter decency laws on music videos, jail Dan Schneider and all others like him, put Bill Clinton, Donald Trump and whoever else was on Epstein's island flight logs behind bars, etc.
It's very easy to look at one thing and make it out to be the only problem, but all these people are pretending the actual issue will disappear if they stand against this film.
Funnily enough, I'm sure if the themes were presented as a positive, fun thing the way a show like Dance Moms does things, people would be defending it left and right.

konmari is stupid as fuck. japanese ideals are usually pretty shit, but konmari is born from their need to make everyone minimalist and simple and forced to enjoy it. people just like it because they think don't realize the entire thing is a different way of shaming people, mainly women, for having too many possessions. it tricks people into thinking that giving meaning to their possessions is any less consumerist and praises them for being minimalist and reserved. everyone who has ever spoken about it positively has a ton of self importance.

I think the reason it's become so popular is a normal reaction to consumerism, and the desire for a more ecological lifestyle. I think capitalism and consumerism push down an ungodly amount of stuff on the average person.

The actual Konmari book is terribl for the environment though, she basically "trash literally 99% of you possessions" and she gloats about having clients throwing away (not donating or anything) hundreds of trashbags full of stuff.

I like minimalism but agree that konmari is dumb. The whole idea of only keeping what sparks joy is stupid as in that case, most people would throw out the majority of their necessities.

Also the dedication to her unnecessarily specific way of folding clothes and storing things is cultish

Her Netflix show was disappointing, most of the people on it were hoarders and she just taught them to organise their hoard. I know minimalism wasn’t the goal but a key part of her system is decluttering so yeah, dumb

well that's the thing, consumerism still shames people for doing what they enjoy or owning what they enjoy. despite telling us to buy, consumerism is more about telling people to replace their possessions with new and expensive ones. having too many clothes or shoes or even just stuff is considered high maintenance and vain, and even in a consumerist society, it's still like that if you aren't consuming properly. 80% of my 300+ pieces of clothing are second hand, and having as much as i do means it's not as big of a deal when they are worn out. they just become rags and i don't have to replace them immediately. but i am essentially useless in the eyes of capitalism and konmari. i agree that being minimalist is a fad though, but it's mainly because people don't understand how capitalism markets to them imo. her book is just standard japanese ego fellating because they can get non-japanese to think whatever they say is mysterious and zen, therefore better, but japan gets off on that.

One thing I wish was brought to American audiences was the concept of respect for items though. It's been a while since I read the book but I THINK I remember a passage about how in Shintoism, inanimate objects still have spirits and Marie's grandmother took great care of each item in the house, cleaning and dusting it. It seems like the only concept that could be digested by American audiences was "If it doesn't make you happy, trash it!" but nothing about showing respect for your items, and by extension, yourself, by cleaning and organizing. The number of things you own really isn't a factor. I definitely get that the spiritual aspect just doesn't apply to everyone, but I'm always so grossed out seeing my friend's anime figures for example covered in a cake of dust. You paid so much for it and love it so much but can't keep it clean? It's disrespectful to the time you spent working to pay for it, and by extension disrespectful to yourself.

So I guess I agree that just trashing stuff has no value, but what does have value is a lot harder to teach.

Second of all, there's no specific look or trait that could be described as 'puncheable'.

Memes rot your brain if you indulge in them too much. Trying to turn everything or every event into a meme is cringey and try-hard. I mean you can't even simply say the name Karen without people snickering like a bunch of schoolchildren. You got 30+ plus adults with an embarrassing sense of humour because they spend too long on Twitter and annoying meme subreddits. I don't think anything of substance would be gone if meme culture died (but that's just wishful thinking on my part)

It probably is. There's a only fan thot local to me that loves to play the biracial card, she needs to fake tan to look ethnic and it shows in her horrible only fan photos she spams now. Maybe she has a big enough following someone will recognise her she's pretty easy to trigger online. She got popular because she over shared about her dating history (just being a slag no one respected), then she got an Asian boyfriend and has been emasculating him constantly on the time line. She loves ethnic stereotypes so she loves to drop her boyfriends ethnicity a lot because he actually doesn't look white.

There is no difference in maturity with a 20 year old guys and a 30 year old guy. Men in their 30s are basically still teens. Men dont officially start maturing until they are in their 40s. So, if you really want a mature man who is going to take care of you, you have to go for men 50+

Nta but given they were born with autism and it's a constant in their life.. maybe they just go through life not feeling the need to disclose it very often. It's their norm.

I meet autistic people where I work, it's usually an unpsoken thing where I pick up on it and it might eventually get dropped into conversation. I have a female relative with it and given she lives alone she doesn't like to disclose it often because it can make you a target to people who just assume you're soft or easily preyed on because of it.

Same, I was in the same class as two autistic kids in middle school for like 3 years and they were a pain in the ass for everyone around them, one of them was violent sometimes out of nowhere and at some point she beat a boy up so much he passed out. Unfortunately she thought I was her friend so at some point I had to go to her house for lunch and her parents were enablers who thought making her a vegetarian would help her not have meltdowns. At least the other kids was often in therapy to learn how to be more and more independent. I'm also wondering if one of my previous coworkers was autistic as well, and less high functioning because I felt I had to baby-sit him instead of doing my job and helping customers.

i'm not American but I was reading the other day how most Americans keep their cats inside vs europe let's them outside the most. It makes sense because the US has a lot more dangerous animals (cougars and stuff) and also more cars.

But I just learned from the legal advice subreddit that Americans get mad when cats poop in their yard? Enough to take legal action on their neighbors. I have cats poop in my yard sometimes but they bury their poop. If they dig up a plant it happens, I just put down some coffee grounds and lemon. Chicken wire works if the cat is very dedicated to a spot.

Apparently this is a thing that enrages some Americans though. Like one guy collected the cat poop and gave it back to the neighbor. Another was threatening to call the police and get a lawyer involved. And these opinions were upvoted hundreds of times. This just seems insane to me. It's a cat, you can't control where it goes. Do they also get mad if a racoon poops in their yard?

I think if a neighbor knocked on my door and shouted at me about my cat pooping in his yard he would be mocked everywhere here. I'm trying to understand the viewpoint because I can't stop finding it funny, some man screaming at an old woman on her doorstep holding a bag of cat poop. This was the "correct" thing to do according to the legal subreddit because she refused to come pick it up herself lmao

Not everyone appreciates random animal shit in their yard. Cat feces can carry disease like
toxoplasmosis and other parasites like ringworm, it's not fertilizer. Why should anyone have to deal with domesticated animal shit from another person's pet? Expecting other people to just be okay in dealing with it is entitled mentality. If all cats bury their shit, then it shouldn't have been noticeable enough for neighbors to have spotted shit in their yard in the first place. Cats do not always bury their shit, and I say that as someone who's owned a cat.

Btw people shoot raccoons who habitually go into their yards to eat and poop because they can bring rabies with them and damage property for their dennings.

Narcissism is going up by every measure, and there's been a clear-cut case of dysgenics over the past 100 years with the most shitty and sociopathic criminals producing a disproportionate amount of the children for the next generation.

100% agree anon. People are also forced to let the schools/internet/media raise their children because the cost of living is too high. I'm not saying single parents or working parents can't raise good kids, it's just easier for shitty parents to have the bare minimum interaction with their kids so they end up effectively negotiating morality for themselves. Children naturally find it hard to recognise bad influences without some help. Or at the very least, without having critical thinking or morality imbued into them by their parents. My grandparents complained about my dad's generation, my dad complains about mine, and I'm not hopeful for the future seeing what's normalised today. As an extreme example it wasn't feasible that people would pray on the elderly and disabled sexually or otherwise. But the amount of instances I've seen reported in the last 20 years is horrendous.

He's always climbing all over people when they come over and kisses and chews on their clothes, follows and circles my cat, and thumps, grunts, and charges at me whenever I try to get him out of a space he's not supposed to be. Just no fear/fucks. It probably has to do with the environment they're in, because other bunnies and bunny owners I know that interact with their pets say that they're similarly "brave."

When women say physical touch is their main love language I take it innocently and at face value, because we all know that a woman's intimacy tends to not be so self-centered.

Because men just aren't raised and conditioned to be homemakers or feel pride in it, so it's likely the case they really are just bumming at home. Instead of doing chores, spending quality time with the kids, preparing meals, or really doing any kind of thoughtful domestic management.
I can't think of one instance where an acquaintance had a "SAHH" willingly…it was usually because he got fired from his job or quit suddenly. Tbh whenever I hear a guy is stay at home I assume he's low effort and is putting his woman through hell trying to support him.

>In one or two years the IT market will become completely saturated and it will cause a crash and burn of that sector
This has been said for at least 10 years by now and it still hasn't happened. A good share of companies quit outsourcing to countries with cheap IT labor (like India) because they realized how costly it is in the long run compared to developing it locally, especially because user interfaces have been improving in leaps and they can't be done for your native clients by some random engineer in Delhi. Outsourcing can be done for busywork that a bunch of underpaid borderline code slaves can stitch together but it's limited to Big Companies with massive amounts of data. The clientele today is much more varied, everyone from Average Joe's Car Parts Store to the biggest retail chains depends on it. Saying "the IT market will crash and burn" is like saying "the house building market will crash and burn". It's not going to happen, people need IT solutions more than ever because it's now an integral part of our society. It's not like people will just suddenly say "this IT shit is stupid, let's go back to paper and pens".

And just because you can write a simple application doesn't mean you can actually code your way to an actual profession. That's why I wouldn't recommend people to go into it just for the money. Programming is a hard career and it's not for everyone hoping to make a buck, you constantly have to learn new things, crunch modes are more of the norm than an exception, you're required to know multiple technologies and design just to start your career, you need to be available at all times and be able to function under tremendous amounts of stress at times. Nowadays it also requires good people skills as most projects are done in teams with constant communication. Plenty of people quit because they just can't handle it and developers tend to have a short shelf life due to all these issues. Good money =/= Good job. It took me years to get my foot in the door (admittedly partially due to being woman) and more years to reach a seniority level where I don't feel like dying every time I'm assigned a new task, but it's still worth to me personally and to me there are no signs of the the market collapsing in decades. You just have to keep ahead the trends and develop a good eye for what's the next direction the market is going to go to.

Source: I have a decade's worth of experience in the field and I'm sick of people trying to claim "the IT bubble" is going to burst just simply because they're jelly of the salaries.

No we need to abolish gender because it doesn't exist. It's a theory that was thought up by a pedo in the 50s. Excluding congenital medical disorders, someone is either male or female. A feminine man is still male and a masculine woman is still female. People should stop caring about presenting as one or the other and just be content with who they are.

I strongly believe normie women irl who don't browse imageboards perpetuate this idea as well without being malicious. I rarely hear guys talk about incel concepts like the wall irl, but I constantly hear young women whining about how old they feel, like "ommgggg I'm turning 23, I feel so old!!" "I'm 28 and unmarried, my life is over!" etc. It's a vicious cycle because if a young girl hears shit like that from other women, she will internalize it and act the same way when she turns whatever arbitrary age is supposed to be bad.

Anyway shit like that is good reason to be loud and proud when you feel happiness and confidence as you age, to try and break that cycle. It's complete nonsense and most women grow out of it, but it would save girls in their 20s a lot of wasted time worrying about nothing.

Exactly. So many girls go neurotic over worrying about aging and not "achieving enough". They assume that at 25 you have to have a good degree just so you can get your career started soon enough to securely start pushing out babies at 30, then live out your life for 20 years juggling between work and your family until you can start having hobbies and interests again. Shit like that isn't expected from men at all and it's no wonder so many women in their 20's are panicking over it because it's being enforced everywhere.

30-40 year old women are just sort of forgotten and pushed away, like Nicole Kidman speaking up about how she was prepared for her every role to be her last because nobody wants to hire actresses past 28 and Liv Tyler saying that by your mid 30s the only roles available are just wives or moms, secondary characters with no real purpose. We should aim to collectively break that cycle and assure younger women that no, their life doesn't end at 30, they can wear the shit they want and keep their dumb hobbies if they bring them joy. Even in fandom spaces older men are looked up as wise mature daddies uwu but older women are seen as weirdos who should get a life and I shake my head whenever girls in their early 20s buy into this stupid meme and start forcing it themselves. Honest to god seen 21-year olds lamenting over how "old and spoiled" they are. Like what the fuck?

Agreed on all counts but I have to admit, not wanting kids/marriage makes it sooo much easier to not care about aging. It's like there's no limit on your time or money or freedom, you have the rest of your life to take care of yourself, improve your life, pick up new skills and hobbies, travel etc. It's easy to be optimistic when your future is just decades worth of whatever you want to do with your life.

I don’t really think there is a lot of societal pressure still for women to have babies before 30. I feel like what a lot of anons here seem to not realise that some women just actually want to have kids and therefore feel pressure over the biological reality of it. I don’t know where you live that 30 year old women ‘aren’t allowed’ to have hobbies. Pretty much every millennial woman I know is obsessed with some media thing like Disney or Harry Potter or some anime character they ‘ship’ or whatever I really don’t think 30 year old men like that are viewed that much more positively. I also don’t really think a 30 year old man dressing like an eboy would be so much more socially acceptable than a 30 year old woman doing it. If anything the opposite is true. Idk I feel way more stress about this supposed phenomena reading about it every other post here, even well intentioned ones like this. I just don’t think this exists in real life the way people here describe it.

hmm, from my perspective this kind of thing exists on the small scale, it's not like society is gonna tell you GO HAVE BABY and media are woke enough to not enforce that idea either anymore, but families and friends in many cases are still putting pressure on women.

Of course nobody's going to step up and say "time to give up your life ladies, make some babies" in 2020. But the fact that magazines, movies, tv shows and so forth are filled with women not in the 30-49 age range unless it's a parenting piece, women being bombarded with "your biological clock is ticking you know!!" articles and the constant flood of "Why aren't millenial women having kids/Why are there so many single millenial women?!" headlines you have to admit that it's pretty much implied that women are still expected to "settle down" and have kids at 30. Even stories regarding career women feature those who managed to combine their relationship/parenting with a successful work life. And not only media, a lot of women still get pressure from their family to reproduce. The mindset never went anywhere.

Hmmm maybe I’m just lucky because my family have never pressured me like that, maybe it’s more common than I think. I don’t think magazines featuring successful women who are also mothers and wives is bad though. Most women still have children, it’s an important thing to a lot of people. I feel like women talking about how they navigate their career in the context of being a mother can be helpful, I don’t think that’s necessary covert pressure to people who don’t want kids.

A lot of women have children because they feel that's what they're supposed to do. That's the point. Also even though a career woman for example has kids it shouldn't be the identity and focusing point for them, you can focus on talking about their successes without making it from the "here's how she combined work life and family" standpoint. Like female politicians are always asked about their pregnancies, husbands and kids, not their actual achievements. Like pic related is what you get when you google search Kamala Harris.

nta but maybe woman don't have babies because they "feel that's what they're supposed to do" but because it's human nature and instinct to reproduce? Maybe this is easy to say for me as a young woman who's never experienced a pressure of getting babies despite being mid-twenties. Agreed with the rest of your points though.

I feel like it’s kind of baseless to say they just have kids because that’s what they feel like they’re supposed to do. You could speculate that’s the reason but that’s not a fact. Most men want kids too and there’s supposedly not as much pressure for them. I agree that people generally don’t ask men about balancing work with their family as much but also don’t see why career women talking about their experience balancing a career and family is ‘pressuring’ other women to do the same. I find that a lot of the time when people talk about ‘pressure’ to have kids they’re simply talking about other women talking about having kids, or them personally having goals they want to achieve by a specific age, but that’s not really pressure. Most people want kids so you’re obviously inevitably going to hear more people talk about it from the side that do than don’t.

Yeah I feel like certain women always portray it like just because they don’t want kids, everyone who does is just brainwashed and we would all agree with them if ‘society’ didn’t pressure us and I find it extremely patronising. They ignore the fact most men also want children. Plus, I feel like if anything nowadays it’s hard to have kids and there’s more pressure to just work as much as possible. Other women are as capable of making meaningful decisions about their life as you are and other women wanting kids, or wanting to start a family by a certain age, or have a specific timeline for their career they want to aim for isn’t ‘pressuring’ you to do it and I don’t get why the women on this site find it so unfathomable and act like it’s a personal attack or something when women post about this or express disappointment at not achieving something. These are normal emotions all people, both men and women, have.

Nobody's saying "all women have kids only because they've been conditioned to do so". You're intentionally misunderstanding the point. The point is that women are consistently expected to settle down, give up their own life and start living for their families. Some women do it out of their own ambition, but there are plenty of women who have their passions elsewhere but are too afraid to pursue them due to societal pressure.

>Most men want kids too and there’s supposedly not as much pressure for them.

For men children are more of a status symbol than something they're expected to cherish and live for anyway. It's a reoccurring and well known problem that many women are stuck in a relationship where the man is dragging his feet when it comes to having kids because "he's not ready yet".

>don’t see why career women talking about their experience balancing a career and family is ‘pressuring’ other women to do the same.

Because there are no alternatives. As tumblrish as it sounds, representation matters. When the only stories you see revolve around this settling down idea you start stressing out if you should follow suite like all the idealized people you read about. Even if it's just the people in magazines it still affects the way you view the world around them.

It's also not only about the pressure of having kids, like I said, it's the pressure of giving up your ambitions as a person to become "just a wife/mother/girlfriend". How many male magazines talk about improving your marriage/relationship compared to female magazines? It's only one example anyway, bottom line is that women aging past 30 aren't often portrayed as individuals with interesting hobbies, career goals, achievements and so forth.

I'm nearly 30 now and the only reason I worry about age is because of fertility. I don't think it's discussed enough or options. And now that woman are generally waiting for financial stability and starting to try for kids later it's hard to find accounts from woman conceiving naturally in their 30s.

We've also got now surrogacy being bastardised and IVF. Older women are shamed for being the reason of birth defects but older men rarely get criticised when it's their spunk that degenerates over time, women just have a finite amount of eggs. Every time sperm is created the DNA inside the cell is copied. As a person ages their DNA gets copied into each new cell that regenerates and it's during this process mutations and error in the DNA code can happen. That's why older people get hit more with disease over natural wear. women's eggs are formed in vitro and get activated over our menstrual cycles. Evolution has accounted for aging in this way. There's actually more evolutionary evidence that women should have more male partners since sperm competition actually exists and it increases likely hood of conception and it's literally the battle of fittest sperm wins.

A bit off topic but yeah, the only concern I have is waiting it out to have a family and my body failing me.

Personally that’s just not my experience. As someone who wants neither, I feel like I just objectively see more media and feel much more pressure to have a good career than to have a kid. Most ‘girlboss’ media I feel I see is targeted at singe women. If you’re talking about fictional media like movies or TV shows maybe, but most people are not childless and single for ever. Most media portraying men also do not portray a single childless happy successful man ‘just following his hobbies’ or whatever. It’s not relatable to most people and it’s a boring concept for a story.

Home ownership is very overrated unless you're already financially set in life, for the average middle class person that's young, they're better off renting. A high mortgage is effectively you selling the best years of your life (your twenties) for lots of capital at the end of your life when you can't do as much shit. It ties you to a place and limits your career opportunities if you're that way inclined, people say "hurr durr, just rent it out", but trusting someone long term with a rental property you own while you're across the country has lots of potential to go wrong, and you're still overall paying for the remainder of the mortgage on top of your new rent.

I feel like Millennials that are lower middle class to middle class would be better off just starting their families in their mid twenties and having the kids gone by the time they're fifty. Instead of delaying it ten to fifteen years and having to run around after teenage boys when they're pressing sixty.

And the "house prices always go up :))" thing is just speculation, and an asset that size for a lower middle income couple is just too much risk. How do you know 70s style stagflation won't return in five years and you'll be selling it at a loss because you suddenly need $1,000 per week mortgage repayments? How do you know you won't take hits in your income? How do you know housing prices won't crash like in 08' during a bad time?

This has been my cope but the reality is I can't afford to travel with my shit wages and I'm too busy paying my steep rent to put any further energy or time into advancing my career. In order to travel freely without paying additional rent you also need to have either almost no possessions, pay for storage or have family that are privileged enough to have enough space to look after your things.
I would agree with all your points in situations where rent is proportional to what you make, but with the low wage and underemployment that most people our age face it's just not true most of the time. Instead renting is just burning away all of my money so I will never be able to save up enough to buy a home.
