I don't know if this is unpopular outside of these images but incels' idea of a "chad" is so fucking weird. it's always the same extreme, comical bone structure and ridiculous swooshy hair. It's like they were going for model-attractive guys but missed the mark. Sometimes it's almost inhuman. maybe I'm unknowingly a lesbian because apparently these "chads" really do have female harems. But they look so uncanny and dumb

It's a meme anon. Most incels don't think that is what women like. I found the whole incel subculture quite fascinating, so I've read quite a lot of those forums and pic related is what they would consider chad. Gigachad would be someone like Dolph Lundgren in his prime.
Then on sites like looksmax.me the ideal is considered to mostly be the male model look (Francisco Lachowski for example)
It's all very autistic and I hate myself for knowing this information.
My mind was somewhere else lmao
lol for real, oh they also think women only like men with big dicks and that we women only want to fuck these "chads"
Their black pill "truths" consist of thinking that women will date psychopaths or bad men as long as they are hot. Seriously, really makes you think wtf is going on inside their heads. They always think they "deserve" stacy and look down on what they consider ugly women.

Imagine living in a time where you didnt have to see this level of insanity from fringe groups co-existing on a present scale with the rest of humanity
Haha yeees. knew many cluster b types who called themselves "empaths" despite lacking traits of empathy. one of my recent examples is a girl who called herself an "empath" yet genuinely could not empathize with me (or others) in any way unless we shared the exact same experiences with her. she even told me that she experienced more trauma than people in war and third world countries do bc they're used to it…. lol In her mind compassion and some understanding to the plight of conditions is the same as full blown empathy which is simply not true.
Many folks in the new age community describe themselves as "empaths" and therefore use that as an excuse to take up your energy as much as possible. Many of these people hold no regard for people who aren't themselves, have high narcissistic traits, and overall lack of genuine connection towards other people yet describe themselves as "empaths" because they have some sad feeling when they see someone crying. You will notice if you get close to these people when many of them live quite dysfunctional lifestyles and have very dysfunctional relationships, especially romantically.
Gatekeeping is necessary because many if not most normies behave like animals and ruin whatever it is they're trying to infiltrate in the first place.
Every community that is "open-minded" and "inclusive" gets raided by people who don't even attempt to understand it and make it out to be something completely different (giving its members a bad name), sexual deviants, coomers who turn it into a fetish, criminals, "entrepreneurs" and influencers trying to monetise it, you name it.
Everything I've ever been a member of that was in any way considered special was ruined this way. Even the city I grew up in was my region's little hidden gem until "digital nomads", foreign startup "entrepreneurs", PUAs and then big porn companies started flocking here and now most people who made that city what it was are priced out of it and it's become yet another Disneyland for American and British tourists to gawp at. Many of those tourists now openly solicit local women who are just minding their own business because they saw it in a porno.
If only we could get archeologists, scientists and writers at least, but nooo we get people who even Westerners don't want so they come here thinking we'll accept them. But if you point any of this out to Westerners you get stereotyped as a racist and told there's "nothing wrong with foreigners" when there very clearly is, otherwise they wouldn't behave like horny monkeys.
I had tooth whitening done once and that shit is extremely painful. The actual procedure isn't that bad but for the next two days you have random pangs of the most awful tooth pain. It's a very sharp kind of pain that feels like the insides of your teeth and gums are full of needles. You also have to abstain from coffee and black tea for at least 2 weeks.
I fucking hated it and I'm never doing it again, if people don't like my yellow teeth they can blow it out their ass, my mouth is healthy and not in pain and that's good enough for me.
I'm someone that used to describe myself as an empath before actually doing therapy and figuring out my problem and I'll just say this:
I only used that word because paranoia (symptom of personality disorder) and acute sensitivity to other people's emotions/feelings. I HAD to know what a person was feeling in order to change to that mood or something different. Depending on the personality disorder, every snap decision is made based on the other person's reaction. Just a slight difference in communication makes me wonder "omg did I do something wrong?" (abandonment fear). I find myself annoyingly still trying to pull my friends' feelings out and usually I am right when they are upset or irritated by something. All of that felt like "Oh maybe this is a special skill of mine, to be able to tell what other people feel?"
But that is nothing special that only an "Empath" can do. Anyone can honestly do that if they pay attention enough to other people's moods. It's just that normal people without any personality disorders usually don't change their every mood and personality to fit those whom they are trying to appease. And they aren't neurotic/obsessive/in their own head about the other person so they don't pick up on the small deets.
As for the "feeling other people's emotions strongly as if they were your own" that's just called being an emotional person with a good imagination.
I think she's great but it is weird how much she clings to the show.
John Krasinski seems to have completely moved on compared to the rest of the cast.
True. One of the most beautiful and popular Stacy types at my school was and continues to be like the nicest woman ever, same with her close circle of friends.

I believe ugly men are a genetical product of rape. We know from analysis of modern DNA that most men didn't pass on their dna, but the wast majority of women did. Around 8,000 years ago 17 women reproduced for every one man. Incels/MGTOWs often say that if this was still a thing, we wouldn't be able to build a civilization and that "enforced monogamy" was the foundation of society (nice cope). I don't believe women back then would fuck ugly men willingly, they were probably raped and then literally forced to marry them through the system of enforced monogamy that males created. Now countless studies show that testosterone levels are decreasing with each generation and I also saw one study about attractive men dying out while the number of attractive women stays somewhat the same throughout history. That's what you get for years of breeding with ugly and weak men who literally created system for themselves so every man could get laid at the price of genetical quality (and female freedom, of course). Incels who researched the topic actually know about this and sometimes it turns them into blackpills (then they give up on pursuing women, as they should), but most of the time it just makes them even more aggressive and more women-hating. They literally want islam or just mandatory monogamy and delegalization of hypergamy to eliminate the whore/incel/simp problem.

anon reminds me of this anon
Also, men usually have more resources, regardless of their looks. I don't give a fuck about some exceptions. Healthy women want attractive men. There are characteristics that objectively make male face and male body unattractive and there's no point in denying it with "much looks are subjective".
Even if looks aren't "subjective," I don't think it's fair to say that a man is only good-looking if he has no features that aren't considered conventionally attractive. Most people have a mix of attractive and unattractive/unconventional features. Like, it'd be pretty stupid to declare someone as ugly just because they had a weird nose, despite the fact that they're otherwise well put together. Plenty of people, men and women alike, do this pretty shamelessly and a lot of times it's ironic because the very trait they claim is "ugly" in the opposite sex is something that they have themselves.
Also, realistically speaking, you should have a good idea of how attractive you are in regards to your own dating standards. Otherwise, you're going to end up bitter and disappointed.
Not really, many female animals live separately from males and they're self sufficient, they don't need males for survival and they're not locked up like women were in harems. And then they just fuck the stronger male once in a year and that's it. Female separatism would solve so many problems with male abuse towards women and children (home is the most dangerous place for women and 58% of female victims
of murder are killed by their male partner or family member) but I know most women will never support it, they gave up a long, long time ago.

When it comes to looks I have no idea what my standards are but I feel like they gear more towards mediocrity which some would consider garbage
When you're a mediocre looking not 10/10 not 1/10, plain jane it's kind of impossible to rank yourself against other people without feeling you don't have the authority to do so
I'm also bi and as I said here >>648058
I see way more ugly men than ugly women. Maybe it depends on the country, idk.
There were also weaker males who couldn't rape as good that want to mate with whomever he can get. It is cruel joke to give human female less body strength.>>648164
That's how it should be. Alas giving men intelligence was a mistake. They got together and realized that they can just rape.
Think it was more to do with that males can impregnate a variety of women while a woman can only be pregnant once every 9 months.
I've read books about human evolution, particularly studies regarding sex. It's thought that woman make vocalisations when orgasming to let other men know she's been fucked. Sperm competition is a real thing and having several guys cum in you increases chance of conception and encourages actual sperm competition, resulting in the fittest sperm winning. It's also thought that women raised children in a nursery setting and all helped raise a tribe's kids because they didn't have paternity testing. Women would basically pick who the father was and usually that was the man with the most resources. It's also thought humans are the only mammals with a menopause because of our socialisation and that older females were considered nurses and didn't need to keep getting pregnant but were optimum in helping raise a child.
Human babies are very resource heavy because of our brains. Think of other mammals that are born like horses or prey animals. They're born and within minutes are able to run and flee predators. Humans aren't. We're extemely vunerable when born. Our skulls aren't even fully formed because women would die trying to pass out a human skull from their vag. Human kids need a lot of care and back in the day it literally took a village.
Basically there's the meme that men get tired after sex and roll over to fall asleep. this has actually been a running theory that primitive men would have went to sleep and a female still horned up would have went off to the bushes with another male willing to keep tapping it.
Like women are programmed to keep cumming so it's weird when I see girls saying they've never experienced it. we're built for pleasure more than guys. It's a tale as old as time that men have just always been envious of women.
NTA but the post is sus because it doesn't align with your views and beliefs.
While anons agree with shit like >>647976

>>647992>usually that was the man with the most resources
But what resources do you have in mind exactly, last time I checked females provided like 80% of food for the tribe in hunter-gatherer times. So how did they choose the father in pre-agricultural societies?
Actually scientists would you believe actually use scientific and empirical data. Archaeology is used in conjunction with gene mapping, carbon dating blah blah blah, so they're considered educational guesses.
You need to remember primitive humans weren't only dealing with threats from other humans. There were wild animals. Toxic
plants. The elements etc etc. We don't just look at things in a vacuum, everything is considered.
I mean, why do men have a g-spot in their ass? Homosexual sex has probably been happening between males for eons. Maybe the dildos people think are females are actually male ones?
I agree but at least your every day muslims and jews aren't trying to recruit people. Also honestly most muslims I know who wear hijab don't think they would go to hell if they didn't and mainly just do it because they're lacking in other religious areas and think it's an easy A in a way. They see their family wear it and are like sure.
I also had an experience with a jehova witness who came up to me in Starbucks and pretended that he needed help understanding what something on the JW website said in the language he wrongfully assumed I spoke. I told him I don't speak the language and goes "oh! Well good thing I just noticed their's an english translation on this site. Let's click it!" He clicks it and starts reading the section in English and goes "It looks like you're interested now that you know there's an english translation, here's the name of the website, have a great day!" I was literally scared for my life, no exaggeration. He was a young adult. Also, I don't mean this in a bad way, but almost all JW I've come across were hispanic.

wigs are disgusting, even when they are quality and well applied.
the thought of somebody taking off their hair makes my skin crawl. it only fits musty old ladies for comedic effect.
and that also goes for fake eyelashes.
I remember these white dudes complaining about Tadanobu Asano playing Raiden in an upcoming Mortal Kombat movie. Personally, I'm not a fan of racebending, but this one actually makes sense. Why the fuck would a character based on Japanese mythology even be white in the first place?
Speaking of The Little Mermaid, not to tinfoil, but I feel Disney chose a black actress for Ariel intentionally because they knew it would get a lot of attention. I love Halle Bailey, she's really talented and cute, I just can't stand seeing her getting hate just for playing a character.
I'm bothered by accuracy and would have chosen a Danish actress because the tale is Danish and the statue erected Danish, but I'm also bothered by Asian or mixed or
any other actors given roles for African or black actors.
I don't believe happy partners 'accidentally' cheat. The human mind will reach for justifications to explain away the cheating instead of facing the difficulty of self-reflection to ask why they've cheated.
For example, if you truly had no underlying insecurities about your relationship and it was all the alcohol's fault as to why you cheated, doesn't that still demand addressing the issue of your lack of control around alcohol? If you'll cheat on alcohol as an accident, then what else are you 'accidentally' capable of while under the influence? Getting behind the wheel? Tbh when someone tells me they have little control over substances it actually freaks me out more than if they'd just admit they aren't happy in their relationship and had a moment of impulse.
You're accountable either way.

I hate this so much. Being fat does nothing except distort your features, make it harder to move around, force you into a food dependency, and leave you susceptible to all sorts of physical disease.
And honestly, so many women's natural beauty has been destroyed by being overweight/obese. It's annoying how the media always hand-picks a fat woman who looks somewhat decent as long as you throw on some heavy contouring and Photoshop (Tess Holliday, Barbie Ferreira and nw Lizzo) in some desperate bid to prove that this isn't a bad thing. Literally feeding into delusion.
Society will get what it deserves. We can either keep pretending a massive population suddenly developed a propensity to be fat within the last 50 years of the human race, or we can buck up and address the serious societal issues that have influenced people to become obese.
I feel nothing for complainers anymore, shouting at people to stop being fat isn't and hasn't worked and this WILL become normal unless attitudes changed.
My bets are she's still beady-eyed as ever. Fatties can look pretty good when they're wearing a full face of slap and photoshop too by your own admission. But we wouldn't have a dramatic before and after shot if she had chosen a plain-faced, untouched photo in shit lighting like her before.
She hates herself.
Beady-eyed or not, she still looks better than her past self (and all obese women ever, especially without extreme makeup). >She hates herself.
All fat people do, but when a person stops being fat, they typically hate that they let it get to that point, while still feeling actual self-confidence, pride and self-love for having the strength to move past it.
>>649022>All fat people hate themselves.
Oh really. >when a person stops being fat, they typically hate that they let it get to that point
No they still hate themselves. Especially if they lost it primarily for beauty reasons like what we're talking about here.
Former obese people are very likely to regain any weight they lose.
Anyway I really don't feel like dealing with your dishonest argument spergout.
I'd tell you to start focusing on your health and stop regurgitating these hopeless, blackpilled-ass "There's no point, just stay fat, you'll regain it all anyway! If you lose weight, you hate yourself!" arguments and delusions about fat being "lively", but that's really a choice you have to make for yourself.
I'd rather you not project "dishonesty" and "spergout" after trying to convince everyone the left looks better than the right, though. Peace.
There is no instances where your fat self is better looking than your thin self.>inb4 muh loose skin and extreme spoopiness

Again, you can keep giving yourself a pat on the back thinking your internet ramblings actually help anyone, I'm sure a meaningful contribution to help end the obesity epidemic will come from someone who's not you. That is all.>>649038

Well anon thinks she knows everything, so.
It sounds more like those people are dealing with the struggle of moving from one eating disorder to another.
Even in those cases, if you asked them if they'd go back to being fat, they'd vehemently say no.
In the time you spent typing these angry responses when you said you were done, you could've done like 5 sit ups or taken a short walk. Not a suggestion or an attempt at "help" (I was just stating my opinion in response to an anon I agree with, weird that you think everyone's trying to "help" you when you claim to not have a problem), just an observation.
There is nothing good about being fat. It's an ED, and a horrible one. No fat person is more physically healthy or better-looking than a thin one. If hearing these thiings can put you at this point of sheer rage, your mental health must be down the absolute shitter, "average" or not, and I hope you seek therapy instead of arguing on Lolcow.

Sofia Jamora is ugly and a huge bitch. I don't understand how someone so blatantly unattractive could become even a F21 model, especially with the catty, bratty attitude she has. She acts like a bitchy 16 year old and has to facetune all of her own pictures to make herself passable. There are such beautiful, youthful, famous models in the world, I have no idea how she managed to get where she is. I also have no clue why she's categorized as a plus size model when she's average. I probably sound crazy to someone who doesn't know who she is or the shit she pulls.>>649115
I'm on the complete opposite end. The fishier the better, I love the texture and the taste. But I can completely, 100% understand why some people hate it. It's strong and the texture can be off-putting, and I'm talking about even cooked fish, not just sushi, which I also love.
Why do you have such a hateboner for a random instagram model? Genuinely wondering considering>I probably sound crazy to someone who doesn't know who she is or the shit she pulls.
She's probably considered plus size cause she's pear shaped and having big thighs/booty can make you look bigger overall. She looks nice imo. Her face kinda reminds me of Fergie.
She's not a random instagram model. She's a fairly famous instagram model who has done work with F21 and Zayn, and hangs out with the likes of the Kardashians and other famous women. If she was just "a random instagram model" I'm sure she'd be brushed off by people as just a random chick, but she's not.
Personal opinion but she looks fuckin weird. Her body is fine but her face is off somehow, I can't put my finger on it.
Not too long ago, she found out that a girl who she bullied in high school was dating her ex who she broke up with 5 years earlier. She posted this girl's @ (the girl in question wasn't a social media influence, just happened to have a twitter and instagram) and started dragging her publicly to her following, along with messaging the girl on snapchat and just being downright awful to her. The girl in question went public, as well as other girls who she apparently bullied relentlessly, and since Sofia is well-known but not as well known as, say, Kendall Jenner, I guess it just never went insanely viral. I'm going to try to find the instagram post so I can link it.
But anyways, this is the unpopular opinions thread, not the debate thread. I don't like her for her cruel behavior, you may ne a fan of hers and I wont question that.
thick thighs small calves gang here
cursed with the perception I'm fat even if not anachan anymore
nice to see a "model" who has normie thighs who doesn't look like she's 5'11" with ridiculously long twig legs
Seriously. She's not a perfect goddess or anything, but she's definitely conventionally attractive.
It's possible her personality is what makes her ugly to anon, though.
Yeah but us sane anons know anon isn't letting out steam in the context of the girl being a bitch, she's pissed cause she thinks she's too ugly to model. >>649324

Whenever I see Trish now all I picture is her toilet paper butthole.
I wish I could bleach my memory.
No she was trying to be sexy while taking a picture of her naked ass while she leaned into her vehicle, but her butthole had little pieces of toilet paper that were visible.
She either can't wipe herself properly or she buys super cheap tp.
Not related, but is there a name for that little skin protrusion near her lip? Is it a form of pronounced nasolabial folds, or just something that happens if you have thicker lips?
I have something similar around my lips, though not as extreme, and I hate it so much.

HAES is a specific niche of the internet that most liberal people don't agree with.
Body acceptance, however, just holds a simple premise that people with different bodies including fat people deserve a baseline of respect. It makes sense why liberals endorse that, bullying and alienating other groups is scientifically shown to not improve situations.
I'm willing to bet there's more people who are politically liberal involved in STEM fields than conservatives.

Nah, Twitter is where these fags belong now.
, this is exactly why I agree with you. Brown bodies on screen are more important, though, who cares if they're boring?
You can’t be this retarded. When you get one character per show on average and every time
they are written like shit, it doesn’t leave you with anything. If a white person is written badly, well there’s at least 10 others in show so meh

Ah yes, female sexuality is singing about our own pussy at lenght rather than like, singing about hot male asses something.

Honestly I agree. I'm from an Ethnic group that I have literally never seen in American media (I'm brown SEA) so I'm pretty disillusioned with people shoving in token representations of groups to try and cover as much ground as possible. I think having characters of different races in media is a good thing, but it gets to a point where it becomes clear they're just trying to check off boxes on a list.
I'd rather see media made by actual nonwhite people trying to represent their specific heiritage/race than media just slapping in a few black, mexican, and asian people to get all their bases covered.

Same. I don't know why people still think that it's so outrageous for people to talk about sex in our holy year of 2020. Obviously "female empowerment" should be a lot more than talking about our vaginas, but who cares if someone decides to make a song about theirs.
I also don't get why this song had so much hype for being raunchy when there are 50 million other songs like it, and have been for years.>>650015

Some anon posted that in the 2020 predictions thread (with no context, there was no infighting so this made no sense), anon in pic might be the same person.
But you have to admit it's jarring to see cardboard cutout characters of color, especially when the white characters in the same source material have actual personalities.
I used to watch this show in middle-high school based on some books, and one of the characters was racebent as a black girl. However, she was also the most mistreated character, both by the writers and the fandom. Ironically, the book version of the character, who was white, wasn't treated as badly.
Also, pretty sure literally no one here argued that diversity in media is inherently bad and needs to be avoided at all costs.

Why do you anons throw in these tinderbox statements and then get upset when they inevitably spark a debate because what you mean is so fucking vague and unclear?
It's been happening a lot lately and the only logical explanation is that you love to argue.
You wrote >representation is getting out of hand
But based on the conservation that followed, you all actually mean >poorly written characters that are forced to check certain boxes are not valuable representations
Your IQ would have to be room temp to not see how the former statement looks like a dog whistle for people who are against representation cause they don't like seeing other people in their media.
NTA, but I feel like this happens because African-American people tend to advocate for themselves more.
I don't see why other minorities don't do the same if they also want more representation.
Why would anyone want to be a token, anyway? Isn't the discussion going on about how bad these writers are when they do this entire "token minority" thing? Why would you want that for yourselves? Americans are weird as shit about these things.
Hard agree. Old folks are so out of tune with what younger people want. Biden seems like he's pandering, but atleast he's trying.>>650235
Is that even what anon was saying? I thought they were just saying that black people push more than other races for representation so they get it more. Not that it's black peoples fault other races are represented even less. All minorities should be loud and advocate to be seen in media.
I seriously don't fucking understand this. Why do other ethnicities get mad at black people for advocating for themselves? Like no one is saying that you have to shut up and take racism/abuse/lack of representation/etc… Those same people get mad at black people and tell us that we're complaining too much and we need to shut up and take it like they do, but then they fucking bawl about no representation or racism…
Can someone please tell me because I don't understand.
I feel like some (not all) of the people who do that expect that they should get more if they side with the current hegemony and constantly remind those in charge "We're not like that bad minority over there that's always bitching". They think it'll work out for them somehow.
It kind of does, in the vein that black people get the brunt of racist hatred (and other races are typically either ignored, considered "less bad" or even seen as "harmless"), but the opposite is also true in that people who reject racism will literally go the extra mile to support black people.
When the latter happens, the people who uplifted themselves by siding with racists get upset because they think "But they're the worst! They're always complaining! We
deserve that, it's not fair, they're so problematic
". And then they pander to racists even more because milking the "not like those other non-whites" tactic is the "safest" way to go, even if the returns aren't that great in the long run. Low-key, I think even extreme racists respect those who stand up to them more, even subconsciously. Everyone loves a challenge, and racial chauvinism requires that kind of steam to keep on. After all, how can racists be proud of themselves without a group to constantly sperg out about and compare themselves to?
Yeah anons here just can't decide, same people that love songs like WAP>>650512

Started playing a new mobile game project sekai. There’s a cute girl character in a sailor collar who acts like a girl and speaks very cute but uses “boku”. It hasn’t been confirmed due to the story if she is a girl or boy but I went to the wiki to see people speculating and all I see is this fucking crap. The game has been out for like 6 days. I hate all of these people. Sorry for sounding not woke. I just hate it. Can’t she just be a masculine girl or a feminine guy? Fuck the trans bullshit movement for forcing people into a bubble and going 100 years back progressively. Non-binary is a joke and I stop listening to you if you think it’s a real thing.

Not sure how unpopular but it seems it is: Silent Hill 2 is better than 3. Pic related dumb bitch with a random British accent especially ruined things for me. Too bad, I like Douglas and Heather, though I’m not the biggest fan of the pregnant with god thing

Really, huh, I’ve seen so much love for 3.
Ok well how about this one: I also think Origins is better than 3 kek. I can’t remember 1 well enough to rank though
I cringe whenever I see furry porn or other specifially made for lewdness accounts on twitter having #blm in their name.
Also seeing all the trashy white women who only go to BLM protests to proclaim their love for the "BBC".
Remember when an anime girl using masculine speech patterns was to show that she was tough and that she didn't give a fuck about society's expectations? I hate the current year.>>650768
Lol same, a random onlyfans thot with acab and blm next to all their links in their bio always sends me, like it's the most performative shit ever.
TBH yes, I just really hate it when TRAs insist these people make the majority of MtFs.
Also, the overused TRA argument "so you're saying that lesbians would rather go for Buck Angel than for these really well passing transwomen??!?!" ignoring the fact that all the decent looking transwomen are HSTS and those who actually seek to date lesbians are uniformly hideous. It's so funny seeing transbians in media (Sens8, Euphoria) be played by obvious HSTS.
All the more reason to distance yourself from fandoms. Each person is going to interpret a piece of art differently. If you prefer a more personal experience with a piece of media and can't tolerate seeing interpretations of it that clash with your own, don't waste time in fandoms. Fandoms are basically a social crutch for people who otherwise struggle to make friends– you aren't required to participate in them.
The misconception that liking something automatically puts you in the fandom is why people now feel like they aren't "allowed" to like certain things because the associated fandom is cringey. Undertale, Rick and Morty, cape shit, etc. Casually enjoying something while you read/watch/play it and then moving on with your life without turning it into part of your identity seems like a foreign concept to people now unfortunately.
It's a snow filter, I know this one lol. If you look at his other video thumbnails he looks like a completely different person.
I even know one tranny in Uk who looked COMPLETELY different from his pics on fb (and still does) because of snow x beautycam abuse.Meanwhile on pictures that were taken frkm other people he looked like a /pol/ nerd with embarrassing fake boobs. (No, he didn't do a PS. He bought fake breasts off aliexpress.)
If I was still hanging out where I met him, I would have showed pictures but it was 2 years ago.

probably a idiot who thinks arashi is a trans man when hes just an okama gay guy stereotype. fuck this year

Whatever helps you sleep at night, anon.
Nah, I think we would be told to just try to figure out what makes us happy, not what is purely “aesthetic” to others.
Like sure, maybe don’t be a fatty with broken knees, but you don’t have to be a skinny legend nor a sexy caricature.
I’m pretty sure it would more about emphasizing what we like if our unique body shape.
So, if you’re a pear but you hate your hips, it’s okay if you don’t show them off, no one cares. And if you’re a hourglass but you only like your legs, show your legs off, you don’t need to show everyone your waist and so on.
I doubt there would be any sort of “ideal” body type.

Candy corn and candy pumpkins are delicious.
Lmao no anon. I wish. As >>651330
said, they basically just taste like sugar with an edge of fake, plastic-like vanilla flavoring. They're also quite dry with a texture that's smooth on the outside and quite grainy on the inside, which is disgusting. People tend to either love them or hate them, with most hating them.
late reply but as a "brown" person I hate being """represented""" in pop culture because it's almost only in shitty series and movies when even when the writers try to show us in a positive light they're fucking up and making everything lowkey insulting or awkward, and it's not like American media even know about us. Sofia Boutella in Kingsman was great though.
The closest things I can see as representation in Japanese pop culture are these vaguely brown exotic exchange students in anime and otome games or whatever and that's a huge stretch. If I want to see people who have things in common with me I can just go outside and talk to them.
is wanting to taste candy corn the shared non-usa/canadian experience, i have always wanted to taste them too.
and twinkies and poptarts i want to taste them too
Agreed, same with jeans. The last thing I want is anything tight around my stomach/waist if I'm trying to be comfy.

What? They would have to be really thin and contrast a lot with the color of the skin of the woman wearing them so you can be able to even perceive anything, also, the woman in question you need to have the smallest buttocks in the world.
What the hell are you smoking? Stop looking at people asses, they’re not tv’s, you weirdo.
There is no such thing as being naturally skinny or naturally fat. There just isn't. There is such thing as having a faster or slower metabolism, and having actual, identifiable medical issues that cause you to be bigger, but for the most part, fatter people are eating more food, period. You might have been born into a family that ate excessively as well as the wrong foods, making you think you just come from a family with bad genes, when really it's bad learned behavior that caused you to be chubby even at a young age. My metabolism is no where near as good as my friends, in the sense where if I regularly eat significantly more calories than I should I would gain weight, whereas she can get away with eating more. But metabolism and genetics are not as big of factors to weight gain as people try to make it. The biggest factors are more calories going in then out, height, and the way your body chooses to store fat.
Yes but having a fast or slow metabolism only comes into play when you are eating more than what you technically should for your height and age.
For example if I'm meant to only eat around 1200 calories a day but decide to eat 2500 every day for a week and I have a slow metabolism, I will gain weight.
If another person with a fast metabolism is supposed to eat 1200 calories a day but eats 2500, they might not gain as much.
The point is anyone who is fat is overeating, because metabolism doesn't affect the intake of the standard amount of calories your body needs to sustain itself. They are not naturally fat, they got to that point.

Anon there are thousands upon thousands of creepshot pics of girls in public with these on. The fabric being thick doesn’t help things, if you’re okay with being photographed that’s cool but personally the principle of it is too much for me.
That's under the assumption someone is going to photograph it. I'm guessing the chances of that happening are low to rare.
Being so obsessed about what other men or people think/do when they see your body is crazy. I would never pass up on yoga pants because I was worried about getting stared at.
Tie a jacket around your waist or wear a long shirt and wear them for a day, you will see how comfortable they are.
I know it sucks that men are disgusting, but do we really have to wear long skirts with a petticoat so men don’t take pictures of us?
Men will turn whatever we wear into something sexual, hell, there’s coomer pictures about women in Muslim attire, just relax and wear some yoga pants with shorts or a skirt over it if you’re worried about people checking out your asshole.
his glasses look so 2012 superwholock tacky
and without them he's even less appealing.
IDK. We are leered at whether we wear ugly ass jogging pants and messy buns or shiny dresses. I've been approached by men I don't want to be approached by while wearing both.
My point was to not let that dictate what you want to wear or how comfortable you feel. Either way, it happens. It's shitty but such is life.
I feel like yeah it does look good. The problem I guess is womens fashion is fine-tuned maximum designed to suit the "ideal" form and be sexy (to men at least), meanwhile men live their lives looking like a paper bag. for the most part
However if men caught up i dont think that'd be better because then we'd all be coomers, who knows

Ugh, same, I'm sure my ex bf only attended yoga classes so he could check out all the tight fitted women. He also insisted I start doing squats for that disgusting KimK ass. On top of that he started guilting me into sending nudes after I told him I unwillingly sent those to someone else a long ass time ago.
He is 90% why I'm too scared to start dating again.
Sure but how many people like that do you see on a daily basis? How many walk around like that on the street? Aside from goth kids, I've seen none.
Besides, when they say that they specifically refer to "work-appropriate" makeup and people who try to argue against it know it but just play stupid.
>shady/money hungry beauty industry
Yeah, definitely not disagreeing with that but
>the act of using makeup in itself is conforming to patriarchal beauty standards
then why do moids have to constantly tell me how much they hate my make-up. it's literally only women who like my looks>>651909
I definitely do agree that "work -appropriate make-up" is the biggest bullshit ever. "clownish"/over-theatrical looks >>>>>
Why can't you
accept that your perception of radfems is based on stereotypes? No one is trying to take your make-up away, ffs.
Ok so I started looking at makeup subreddits after trying to follow the drama with James Charles, and do you know how many women swear up and down that they do makeup totes for themselves, but since the pandemic hit they’re all like “what’s the point in wearing makeup”? They make posts asking ‘what makeup is your most used/can’t go without’ and all answer foundation/concealer or mascara. Most of them are deluding themselves because they care more about pretending to be empowered than actually being so
What is so hard to grasp about the fact that we all are affected by socialization and so is everything we like? Even if you grew up in a vacuum and truly do like makeup for yourself, It doesn’t matter how you engage in makeup in the current society, it all supports men’s interests whether individuals claim to hate it or not, so the point is moot
I guess I was a little bit too harsh though, after seeing this self-identified radfem call all make-up "slave paint" and all women who wear it "handmaidens of patriarchy" and there were still plenty of women agreeing with her.
I guess it also depends on the age and the platform a radfem is using, because I've seen many boomer Karens who seemed to genuinely think true gender neutrality is looking like the grey blobs from Fairly Odd Parents
This will probably make me sound like a dumb scrote, but here I go (I would never discuss this shit with dudes and my female friends all disagree) : I don't like the new definition of rape as "Sexual activity without consent". First off I think it actually makes it more difficult to prosecute because it becomes even more of a he said she said situation. Defining rape as having an explicit element of threat or violence makes it way more clear cut. (Although I don't think people would go to the police with these kind of ambiguous situations because they already know it's not actually rape, it's just virtue signalling to pretend it is…)
A lot of things described as rape recently just don't sound like rape to me, and I'm sorry but if you haven't said "no" and you look like you're into it, how tf do you expect the other party to know what's going on in your head? I have friends who told me I was raped when I told them what I thought was a funny anecdote of a sexual accounter that didn't go 100% like I expected, because apparently it's the responsibility of the guy to make sure everything's fine. Same thing when a friend told a story of bad sex because the guy wasn't listening to her (she was in no danger and literally left the bedroom after a while…). Are they expecting people to be psychic?
Also people that are really into this notion have a strange view of sexual relationships while drunk. In my personal experience, it only amounts to making the guy in the situation (or the butch girl in one case…) literally responsible of everything regardless of anything the woman does. I've seen people chastize a drunk guy that turned down a drunk girl even though she wanted to have sex with him because they'd made out first before he decided she wasn't "able to consent", which was apparently sexual assault. The girl was literally PISSED. I think it's logical that the guy didn't go through sleeping with her as it made him unconfortable, but even if he did, how would that have been reprehensible? Why is it the man's duty to ensure his outwardly enthusiastic partner is actually consenting? I've even heard people blaming the guy in situations where both participants are drunk as shit and end up blacking out. The fuck?? I mean you can't have two people mutually raping each other so I guess you have to find a culprit… And a man is still in many woke people's minds more deliberate than a foolish woman who's perpetually unsure of what she wants. Reminds me of my mom's backward country where women are in lifelong minority - except on the topic of sex where we're all scheming whores. What a wonderful reversal.
(I say that because I have yet to hear anyone throw a fit when a woman tries to sleep with a guy that's too drunk to get it up, when that should in all logic be a glaring sign of the man's unability to consent because of alcohol.)
Note that I am only talking about "good faith" incidents here, that I've seen play out IRL, where there is no threat of violence of any kind and no coercion, no explicit "no" (or it ends the sexual accounter immediately) or actually trying to escape the """unwanted""" sexual accounters. To label these kind of things as rape is beyong me.
Thanks for coming to my victim-blaming Ted Talk. (Funny story: asked in a college class about consent and "grey areas", especially in a party or when alcohol is involved, what people could do to foster a safer environment, answering "maybe we should drink less" wasn't taken well at all.)
i somewhat agree with you tbh. we have to let the other person know we dont want to engage in sexul activities, we cant be vague on that. and people who clame rApE for even a missplaced gaze is stupid and detracts from the real victims
. if everything is rape and abooose, the the real shit is gonna get buried and scrotes will have the "everything is rape to them" excuse to get away with it.
i kinda agree with this but i don't trust men when they say "i didn't realize she wasn't into it", men constantly ignore women's boundaries or legit screaming and crying because they pull the "i'm just a dumb coomer and i thought crying is part of normal sex lol" defense
too many people give men the benefit of the thought and think they are as stupid as men claim to be, when men know what they are doing
Yeah… as long as he doesn't have severe autism or something, he should be able to read basic body language. If she's silent and unresponsive then he just thought 'well it's not obvious that it's rape, so I'll go ahead and get my nut'.
I don't think people realize how scary it can be, rape happens a lot during mid sex when the dude starts choking you out of nowhere or something. If you say no you have no idea if he'll get more violent, and they usually get violent when women resist.
>>652041>too many people give men the benefit of the thought and think they are as stupid as men claim to be, when men know what they are doing

Of course not. Just funny how dudes be making “I’d fuck me” jokes but when I said that’s gay af, they would actually get triggered
and start to argue with me how it’s completely str8 and just like masturbation.
Men are so retarded, many of them actually do enjoy gay things but still think being seen as gay is the worst thing ever.
This is what probably triggered
the entire trap debate. Yes, Brad, traps are fucking gay. No, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
honestly even if a rape allegation can seem ungrounded it is often deserved anyway and women should not be afraid to call their bad experiences rape because scrotes need to be way more harshly judged for their actions. my opinion is that the definition of rape and sexual assault should be even more "wide". people who give a fuck about "innocent" men being wrongfully accused of rape obviously have zero experience of any type of sexual violence and how it's handled in the legal system. the chances of men being actually wrongfully accused of rape in any country are so god damn low, especially in comparison in how many cases of rape are not taken seriously by authorities or even followed up on.
this is just such a bad take overall because there is literally NEVER a case of some woman "accidentally" taking advantage of an unconscious or intoxicated man. when your sort of thinking is implemented in the legal system it ONLY works to benefit men with neglectful, exploitive or sadistic sexual tendencies

? Does anime face make anyone automatically a loli ? This character is 19 years old (later shortly turns 20). The artstyle is jackshit, sure but that doesnt make her a loli.
Manga/anime itself is an attempt to make a knock off version of that anime with bully girl. Not interested but imo its stupid to call this huge-eyed bug a loli.

It makes me a bit sad how cute Ethan Klein (H3H3) used to be when he was younger and not as fat. This happens to almost all men and still women supposedly “age like milk”.
It's because too many people outside those groups speak from a place of ignorance and bad faith. When there's an irritating amount of people of a certain background who say nothing but stupid shit about your background, of course you don't want to hear from them in general.
You can only go through so much of hearing the same scrotes with retarded evopsych opinions about women before you don't even care to hear out the one guy who actually has something worth listening to. You start to think "You're annoying, just shut the fuck up. Read the hundreds of other times people with your opinion have been argued with". It's even worse when you do give them a chance, and then their opinion is just the same thing you heard from the rest, but in a slightly different shade. It's the ultimate disappointment.
It sucks for people who are educated and have good points to make, but honestly, what can you do?

Just a case of shitty artstyle, not that deep. Both manga and anime are fugly. Artist is one of those "huge eyes were popular in early 2000s, and anime is all about big bug eyez anyway!11" case.

Boba tea tastes awful, but they look nice and I wished I liked them
It's the hair that ruins it for me. That style only works on tall, composed women with a cool yet kind personality. You know, the josei or shoujo ai manga type.
It just doesn't go with that face. If they'd given her a more youthful and girly looking hairstyle I wouldn't mind her design nearly as much.
I would say 90% of the drinks at most western (american and european) shops are awful and just way too sweet. Here some shops arent even tea theyre flavored milks or juices with boba. Maybe they have one or two different types of actual teas but for the most part its flavored powder they shake into milk and then you add your shit popping boba, pearls, aloe etc.
So i kinda agree with you. When theyre asian owned and ran and use real tea they can be good. I only like the basic/oolong black tea with milk, 0 percent added sugar with tapioca pearls. Also where i am, no one seems to like ice so by time they shake it theres only a few cubes and its barely chilled, so i always have to get extra ice.
If you had comprehended my post you would realise I'm well aware of that and frankly don't care kek.>>652700
I actually agree with you anon, I'm just advocating specifically for free speech. Everyone is entitled to express themselves verbally (as long as it doesn't converge into criminality). That includes the repercussions one might face from others for an unpopular or immoral opinion. It's not a perfect system, but I'm thankful stifling people isn't as common a practice in the West as it is in some parts of the world. It's why I like LC. The playing field is leveled and is more based upon quality of ideas as opposed to the identity politics that are frequently employed by entitled people lacking an argument.
Nta but i developed a shitty waking up late behavior after a change of time zones, to solve it, I wake up 15 minutes before the time I have to get out of the bed to do my stuff, sometimes I wake up half an hour before so I can throw a silent tantrum in bed and even get some extra 5 minutes of sleep, sometimes I just browse the Internet and whatnot.
You get to waste some time while still being productive without feeling too tired.
Fair lashes are cute on their own, and mascaraless eyes are more striking IMO>>652966
There has to be something more. I tried to make my own using milk, cream, or evaporated milk and they all tasted off. Never quite like from a shop. I like a bubble tea sometimes but I always get 25% or less sugar from actually good tea places and they’re still really sweet kek

I have a feeling that within 10 years, transracial identities will be accepted in the USA. Cardi B's sudden identity shift from a Latina mestizo woman who considers sex with black men interracial to a black rights activist who pops her pussy, the phenomenon of blackfishing on IG, and many aspects of the mainstream music scene as a whole are just the blueprint. Before that was the concept of "political blackness", and before that was the one-drop rule.
Pay attention to how mixed women are presented as black women in media. That is on purpose. For any black women who noticed this before reading, colorism is not the only issue at play here. Look how many subliminals there are on YouTube promising to make the listeners Asian, black, biracial, white, etc. There is a real audience of people struggling with a form of dysphoria around race.
There's already been multiple cases of people “racefaking” and entering spaces reserved for people of that race: Rachel Dolezal, Jessica Krug, CV Vitolo, Satchuel Cole, etc. There are trans women who started off as white men, but now identify as black women.
In the cases of the white women doing it, it caused backlash, but they all talk of being confused about their own identities, and they never did things with the exact intent to harm black people. Soon, bashing them will be considered too heavy-handed. Rihanna was one of the first to open that door when she called Dolezal a “hero”.
Eventually, people will start talking about how race is just a social construct, we should be helping those struggling with racial identity issues, racial identity is coercively assigned at birth, some people have chemicals in their brain that are more like black people than white people, etc. Anti-racists who oppose this will be called TEARs (Trans-Exclusionary Anti-Racists). Maybe the word “transracial” will be phased out and considered too harsh. “Trans-cultural” is softer and more acceptable to the untrained ear. The same way transgender people often rally behind intersex people and their shared struggles with confusion around gender as proof of their identities, you can expect transracial people to rally behind biracial and multiracial people in the same way. They can and will call back to the narratives around racial confusion and the “tragic mulatto” trope for this.
When the black/white barrier is finally broken, that will open the floodgates for those infected with k-pop and anime mind viruses to come out as trans-Asian. Notice how transgender women have a dichotomy been HSTS and AGP? “Trutrans” and “trenders”? It’s going to be the “authentic”, “passing” trans-black person with true racial dysphoria who takes tanning pills, perms their hair and just wants to be accepted (never mind if they have an obsession with sexualised black women and/or BBC stereotypes) vs the “trendy”, non-“passing” weeaboo/koreaboo who wears shitty cat eye makeup to look Asian.
To be clear, I’m a woman with racial dysphoria. I guess this will ultimately benefit me, but I’m not evil, just trying to live my life, so I’m giving a heads-up. I just want the best for everybody, and I don’t necessarily think it’s good if this does happen.
I think anyone who has these feelings should just try to live in silence, don’t disclose anything, move somewhere people don’t know you (if you plan to outwardly present), and definitely don’t put yourself in any civil rights group like an asshole. There are others like me, but no one talks about it because it’s taboo. Please don’t attack those girls on IG who are “black fishing” or photoshopping themselves Asian or anything, I promise it’s just a way of expressing love for certain aesthetics and support for people, or even just a way to have fun, not a plot to hurt women of color. I think everyone has a little woman or man of another race inside them, it’s part of being human.
Shut the fuck up american.
That weird relationship with race is an american thing, literally no other country in the world cares that much.
I didn't choose to be born with pale skin and mental issues, please just try to understand. I don't want this to happen, I’m on your side.
Bashing the people who have this issue just causes them more pain and confusion. The problem is the media supporting it and pretending it's not a mental problem. There is no adequate treatment right now.
A funny thing I've noticed is that the white people who get notorious and universally mocked for publicly presenting themselves as black are all women but there's Shaun King a white guy who claims he's half black and styles his hair and only publishes black and white selfies to try and look more mixed even though both his parents are white and no one really gives him shit for it other than conservatives pissed off at his activism.
When people comforting him about it he just implies his mother had an affair with a black man which is hilarious but he never faces any real social repercussions for it and can carry on his activism career and mainstream media appearances unlike the white women who get exposed doing this who are shunned as crazy and damaging the black community.
So I guess as people live their lives more and more online, especially with editing your selfies in some way becoming more common, it probably will become a bigger thing.

sorry for ot but Shaun King is fucking annoying. That "my mom had an affair with a black man" thing is most likely fake. He looks like his dad. If anything his mother might be mixed. Plus, who's family would be ok with them openly admitting they are a child of an affair?

Shaun King reminds me every White guy who thinks dating a Black girl means he needs to get a skin fade or start sleeping with a durag on trying to put waves in his hair.
Even if his birth father is a lightskinned Black man as he alleges, he was still raised by a White mother (and White father for some time) meaning he wasn’t raised in Black culture. Even if he’s truly biracial, he still easily passes for White. So he’s removed from the culture and isn’t even a visible minority, especially when styled differently… interesting. I smell Dolezal.
It would be easy for him to put this to rest by simply sharing his DNA results.
It’s fucking weird in general, I get leaving nice comments to cheer up a not really popular artist you like, but leaving comments for someone who has over 5k followers is just sad.
Also, hate comments are indeed specially retarded, what are those people gaining from it? Specially since most of the time they have their faces and names out there related to those comments.
And criticism isn’t bad, but if someone is going to be like >yur a bitch>fagass >I hate your insertrandomthing
It’s just retarded and a waste of time for all of the parties involved.
NTA they're just okay. They're not terrible or anything. It reminds me of visual kei bands that were more aesthetics>music (but vk tops babymetal tbf). It's definitely not just men that only like them for their look though. i think they just struck gold during a time weebs, jrock, jpop, kpop, etc were on the rise.
They're like the metallica of girl-lead metal bands. Just mediocre.

Fuck this is so accurate lmaooo
This is extreme tinfoil he's been with his wife since he was 16. I feel like he probably lied about his race to her in HS and has to keep the act going, so he just became an activist to prove his "blackness". He passes "well enough" so it works, but not well.
TAYRT, and it's not that it's just… I've seen several adult men on my feed going "omg they're so good! And cute!! Look at them!" but they're not actually that good, they're about as basic as it gets. But they get all gooey about it.
I want to say same with k-pop but at least k-pop in itself is its own genre.
Maybe it's the fact that they're new to me that I don't really get the allure of it and why they'd be acting in shock of the band.

This isn't an unpopular opinion. This is what 90% of men actually believe.
Holy shit, I hope that isn't an unpopular opinion. Saying "Based," and or "Redpilled," is the modern equivalent of "Oof
," and "Bruh," Adds absolutely nothing to the conversation, ever.
I don't understand why people get upset over dumb meme words, especially on an imageboard of all places. Like if it bothers you that much, go seek out places where people hold proper intellectual conversations.
>I bet they don't even know the origin for "Based" either.
Are we really being snobby over "based" yeah?
I know I said it wastes time but you're taking that too literally, but of course what did I expect… I don't care if people reply with one liners like "kek" (otherwise I would've included that). It's literally just the word "Based">>653485
Well, because different internet communities have different cultures. Pog, Based, kekw, kappa are all things you'd expect on Twitch or Twitter. If we all started using more and more phrases from different places the culture of this imageboard would dynamically shift. Dont fucking tell me to go somewhere else and relax, it's just an opinion. The point of me saying "I bet they don't even know […]" was to further drive my point that it comes across as such an underage phrase to constantly repeat, just like "pog" has been hammered over and over again on Twitter. I never said I expected intellectual contribution but if you're gonna say Based, at least explain why something is based. It's such a zombie response but I guess you say it so often you don't even think about that.

Samefag, but this scrote showing off his dick over in /g/ and saying "Based Sluts Keep it Up" is a perfect example of what I meant by the word being such a scrote-like lingo. Perfect timing, KEK
(That's his foot btw, I cropped out the tiny phallus)
I see what you mean, but you could literally apply that logic to a number of terms also utilised by groups you attach a negative connotation to. For instance I can't stand the words "y'all" or "problematic
" because I associate them with the brain-dead twitterfags that come here in hordes. But that doesn't necessarily mean every, or even most instances of people using them are in any way associated with that group.
Soz for sperg, clearly no one even asked kek.

If you make under 30k a year on paper not including assets in the US and aren't on Medicaid and Food Stamps out of 'pride' but you readily took the unemployment checks you're very silly. Brainwashing middle class people who aren't actually middle class in terms of income to not go on programs like SNAP or Medicaid because they don't want to take the dole yet they cannot afford food beyond simple grains every month is the greatest psyop ever.
There is no pride in not accepting a government handout, GDP is not real, taxes are not real, the treasury prints FIAT currency and gives trillions of it to bailout international corporations who are no beholden to the US government and do not pay taxes.
Why do you care if you get 200$ a month for food, or your prescriptions suddenly become a maximum of 5$ and your doctor visits become a maximum of 10$?
Why are you so dumb?
The dole has been a concept as tried as the concept of Empire, and we live in an Empire. Grain allotments persisted in Rome basically until the sacking of Rome, and they were never ever repealed for long, even then it was impossible to 'take back' a social program.
If you cared about not having a society where welfare doesn't exist, too bad, that argument was settled before you were born, and now we live in the society where if SNAP or Medicaid was ended there would be riots, just like there was in Rome or any other society thats done this.
Just take the money for food, and use the money to support local farmers. Did you know that SNAP/EBT works in conjunction with local farmers in most states and actually doubles your money if you go out of your way to support local farmers?
Yes I'm serious, if you have SNAP and you go to a local farmers market, they'll probably accept SNAP/EBT, and if you pay them with your EBT your dollar is actually worth 2$! This is a subsidy program, but it only works if you don't spend the dole at walmart.
People act like they want to be farmers, you know you can get a farm in the midwest in states like Iowa and declare yourself a corn farmer and get dole to just live there? Why wouldn't you?
I genuinely cannot understand how people live in this fantasy world where dole is this evil thing sucking money from tax payers when we are the biggest empire on the face of the earth with the almost entire world beholden to 'our' treasury economically
Here is medicaid expansion, its not the same in every state, but it is EXTREMELY generous and pays for pretty much EVERYTHING. They only ask you to report income, not assets, just income. Did you know that Medicaid will also back-pay medical expenses if you can prove that you qualified for medicaid when you suffered them? Like if you're 23 making under 30k, qualifying for medicaid, but on shit insurance without knowing better, they will backpay it. If you were uninsured, then they will 100% backpay it
>NOOO U CANT JUST USE THE GOVERNMENT WELFARE PROGRAMS!!! ONLY POOR PEOPLE WHO AREN'T FROM THIS COUNTRY NATIVELY ARE MEANT TO USE THOSE!!!
shut up i hate conservatives oh my lord
OT but lmao I'm big mad that the income requirement is based on federal
poverty levels and not a state-by-state basis. I need to make well under 30k to qualify as an individual, but 30k is minimum wage in my state. I can't fucking afford shit in my state on 30k anyway though. Fucking stupid as hell. Give me fucking medicaid, regular health insurance still had ridiculously high premiums/deductibles even after the tax credits. I fucking hate this shithole country.
Conservatives who don't want me to use welfare programs need to pay me an actual living wage.
Yeah I don't think any lower earners are against taking welfare IF they qualify for it. Like this anon said >>653750
, if you don't live in a state where medicaid is expanded, or if you just live in a state that granted welfare based off the federal standard when state poverty is defined so differently, you're kinda fucked.
I live in a state where medicaid is not expanded, I make a few thousand short of 40k annually. I live very frugally and I have no health insurance because I can't really afford to give up $200 extra a month (it's technically cheaper to just pay $250 if/when I need to use an urgent care like twice a year). But I can't see a physician and a medical bill could bankrupt me.
One time I was absolutely desperate and tried to use pay stubs back when I only worked part time @30 hours a week making $16/hr to apply for assistance, they told me I didn't qualify for any benefits because I made $50 more than the federal cutoff. That's that. If you make a single dollar more than the cutoff you ain't getting shit.
Even Planned Parenthood in my state said they couldn't help me out in any way, not even with a payment plan, and proceeded to charge me over $400 that I was to pay immediately for an STD panel and pap.
Someone earning $50 less than me working part time technically has a better standard of living than mine when I now work full time.
The system has told me to fuck off.

-Love to Spam Kylo ren jokes until it's unfunny
-Mostly of Tumblr and Fangirl
-Cancel Adam because of his roles in Blackkklansman
probably unrelated, but one time on tumblr i found a self proclaimed radfem unironically defending marilyn manson's actions and insisting he's not creepy/abusive
and it's just media bias
I'll never understand why people feel the need to view their hobbies through a political lens. You have hobbies to get away from politics, not as an alternative way to argue about them. How hard is it for someone to just say>I don't agree with [x musician]'s behavior/politics, but I enjoy the music anyway
Or>I know [x thing] is trashy, but it's fun for me
Ffs just relax and enjoy shit. Life's too short to pretend to hate things you like because they're ~problematique~

Why is Sailor Moon considered a "girly" show when the girls are skantily dressed teenagers who are 70% legs? And there is so many of them they are sure to attract at least one moid. Everything about this show seems aimed at making teen boys horny
Just because men will sexualize something doesn't mean that's what it's for, or that girls/women can't also like it for our own reasons (especially if it's primarily aimed at us).
In my case, I liked Sailor Moon as a kid because all the girls were pretty and could fight/do magic stuff. Also, they went to school, had friendships, etc. I didn't really care how short their skirts were, it's not like there were panty shots every other second like actual coomer anime.
A show primarily aimed at making teen boys horny would just be composed of male main characters with like, one female main character who's either annoying or bland but is cute/has big tits, or is just a male character's personality and huge tits. Or it'd just be a harem anime, there are plenty of those.

Geez Naeko's art style was based on high fashion pictures,they are 70% leg because she would look at 6'0 vogue models to base her drawings of women, it has nothing to do with men.
On this note, isn't it weird how much high fashion isn't even ruled over by women, but gay men?
We kind of hold it up to a desexualized pedestal because it's not just beauty, but art blended with beauty, but who's to say most high fashion isn't just gay scrotes using women like Barbies to project themselves onto in a non-sexual way? Aren't depictions of women of a very specific body type/height dressed in garments and makeup designed by males, posing how males dictate, and bringing male creative forces to life just another form of male gaze?
Maybe it's not as blatantly toxic
/directly disrespectful as the more traditional, hypersexual straight male gaze, but it's still there.
That's wild, Bayonetta looks nothing like characters drawn by men. I've loved Bayonetta since I was a kid but even the game's story isn't anything like what men tend to write.
Usually they'll give strong female characters a tragic backstory by saying they were raped or molested, friendships with other women don't exist, all characters are catty and jealous towards each other, and the character design is usually big melon titties with jiggle physics.
Semi-related, but I hate it when SJWs cancel women in the media for the smallest overstep when men are indestructible no matter how many lives they fuck up and how much of a shit human being they are. There's always some scrotoid caping for them and telling people to "separate the artist from the art", yet people seem to be incapable of doing that for women.
That's good to know. It kind of sucks seeing a cool model shoot/concept, reading the name of the designer and finding out 99% of the credit and monetary proceeds go to some male even though it could never even work without female hands.>>654310
I'm not mad, though. I was one of the anons defending Sailor Moon, and never had a problem with Bayonetta because it's still made by a woman. I just like to consider more than one viewpoint, kek.
Gay male gaze can still be sexually charged from a projection-oriented standpoint. Like I said, it's just different from het men's version. See: Gay men who obsess over Lana Del Rey because they live vicariously through her, the gay guys who had Charli XCX sign their poppers or some other thing they planned to use for sexual purposes without her knowledge of what it was, etc. It's all creepy.
The line between AGP troons and certain kinds of gay men (not all) is often blurry.
technically she IS in a band. jupiter, her current BF, handles a lot of the production and performs on stage with her (where he creepily emulates early CC by pretending to play a guitar on stage. i'm not even kidding. i saw her live like 2 years ago and the guitar he plays does literally nothing). jupiter just sucks ass at producing music and is just as bad as ethan was imo (in terms of being manipulative/controlling and potentially abusive
). he's pulled some pretty fucked up stuff (along with alice) over the past 6 years since alice left CC.
i've been a huge CC/alice fan for like 12 years now (kill me) and have a literal fuckton of receipts on all three of them. after all the shit i've witnessed, imo alice did a lot of this to herself and has a lot of issues she needs to work out. inb4 victim
blaming, i really don't even care at this point. i felt incredibly bad for her when everything was first going down, but i'm way past that point now. all three of them are trash in their own unique ways.
Disagree, a lot of gay men can be quite misogynistic and judgey over women's bodies.
What makes you think the fashion designer ones aren't pushing this agenda for themselves.
Overly thin teenage models with little to no breasts, strong masculine jaw lines ect.
Obsessed with youth. I've hung out with way too many bitchy gays to believe some of them don't have an agenda or aren't trying to play dollies.
>Inb4 I bet you are a fatty tumblrina legbeard!
I think the e-girl style kind of suits her. She does it in this video.
To be honest, it's a disappointment that most of her new music isn't very good. She feels more like a model than a musician.

I think it's way too over the top and polished compared to her old style, which was much more authentic, but that's just my opinion.
i'll give a run-down. if you're still interested in any of this, let me know, and i'll post the receipts in an imgur album when i get home (am at work currently).
>alice and jupiter gaslit a clout-chasing fan ~2012 into thinking ethan was stalking/harassing her. said fan was touring with alice around LA at the time and doing a lot of photography for her when alice was mostly doing DJ sets. fan was constantly getting bombarded with asks on tumblr that were targeting specific things that this fan had only really discussed with alice/jupiter. when she confronted them, they called her back and accused her of being mentally unstable/having a mental breakdown, it was actually ethan sending them and he was going to hurt her. she was using an IP tracker on her tumblr and was able to prove that it wasn't ethan at all. she later went on to apologize to ethan after alice/jupiter had manipulated her into putting out some huge false statement against ethan on her tumblr, even ended up meeting up with ethan/edith to repair their friendship after all this happened.
>alice claims that she released her accusations against ethan to protect other women from him, yet she did not intervene when ethan was dating an 18 (or 19, somewhere around there) year old that alice was DEFINITELY aware of. said girl was going on tour with them at various points, and claims that alice told her in the back of a tour bus that "ethan was a great guy and would take care of her". if this was all about protecting women, why didn't she step in and warn her of ethans abuse?
>alice has publicly gone after edith (current frontwoman for CC), accusing her of copying her. has publicly followed IG accounts whose sole purpose was bashing on edith, a girl who has done NOTHING to alice/jupiter - hasn't even spoken to them personally according to an interview she had awhile back. they also had several IG live stories years ago that straight up dragged edith's performance during some televised show (coachella, i think?). just really rude shit to a woman that hasn't done a damn thing to them except try to fill alice's shoes and has done nothing but praise her.
>clout-chasing fan i mentioned before (who is in the LA scene) has publicly stated that alice/jupiter pass around plates of MDMA to their own fans at parties in their LA house, in an attempt to get them to open up about trauma they've experienced. really rubs me the wrong way that they would do this to their fans. i can easily see power dynamics coming into play where someone who is not experienced with these kinds of drugs accepts their offer due to peer pressure.
>alice mentions in her statement that ethan was supplying her drugs, but you can clearly see from the defamation case's court documents that alice was CONSTANTLY emailing ethan and asking for him to bring her drugs, or asking for a connection. almost every time she asked, ethan turned her down or was uneasy about her getting drugs herself and would ask that someone else do it for her. the court docs also mention various points where alice has claimed to be "really coked out" or struggling with dependency issues (opiates, iirc). it's also kind of telling when alice started crying during some interview, where she was asked about her addiction issues. she claimed that all of it, 100% of it, was bullshit and ethan was lying. yet we can see her on stage during her entire time in CC heavily drinking (while underage), obviously on drugs, etc. there are also photos of the request list that the band would put out, and alice was almost always asking for some sort of drug to be supplied to her for the show.
>alice has, over the past several years, adopted a really creepy, high-pitched way of talking that basically makes her look/sound/act like a child. considering the abuse she went through, i can understand that it may be coming from that, but it also makes me think that her and jupiter are into some DD/LG kinks. just makes it creepy to me as alice was groomed while at a very young age.
>alice publicly went after grimes at one point, accusing her of stealing some idea for a song/music video she had. this isn't much, but it's telling to me that alice is incredibly petty/overly protective when it comes to "her image" (which has since morphed into straight up LA e-girl aesthetic; absolutely nothing about current alice reflects any style she has had before), which ties back into how she treats edith.
>alice's OWN SISTER has made claims against alice, stating that she believes alice heavily exaggerated most of her story in an attempt to "destroy ethan" and nothing more. it should be noted that her sister was alice's make-up artist and toured with CC for an incredibly long time. she witnessed jupiter going after a random fan on IG, with jupiter accusing him of being ethan and stalking them, and reached out to them as she feared said fan was being manipulated by jupiter/alice. she claimed that alice was only in it for the money and to ruin ethan's reputation.
i'll just stop here. i could mention the stuff i have on ethan, but i think we're all on the same page with him being a shit person. the stuff with ethan goes pretty deep, as he constantly hides behind fake accounts and messages fans, trying to manipulate them, get them to do stuff for him, etc. it's just an entirely different level of creepy. i'll include those receipts when i post the rest later. here's one example: https://imgur.com/a/vEVXV

Anone do you know anything about Edith? She seems like the most levelheaded person in all of this and just wants to make music, also kek at alice accusing her of copying, if anything edith looks like mars argo.

She definitely copied her imo, maybe not in the picture you posted but there's plenty of others.

Idk man, I don't think that she was straight up skinwalking her but she was definitely copying her as a way of trying to replace her.
Thanks, anon. This sounds so fucked up. Weird false-flag harassment/power games and manipulation shit. They all seem twisted. Definitely interested in seeing an imgur album. The screencaps where Ethan's telling his fan what to say seems very….well-practiced for Ethan.>clout-chasing fan i mentioned before (who is in the LA scene) has publicly stated that alice/jupiter pass around plates of MDMA to their own fans at parties in their LA house, in an attempt to get them to open up about trauma they've experienced. really rubs me the wrong way that they would do this to their fans. i can easily see power dynamics coming into play where someone who is not experienced with these kinds of drugs accepts their offer due to peer pressure.
I heard about this one, and it's extremely skeevy. It's some shit I feel like Ethan would pull, but here's Alice and Jupiter doing it and probably not seeing a single problem. I think (hope) Jupiter isn't taking advantage the way Ethan might, but there no real way of knowing. They all seem quite similar, on varying levels. Maybe Alice picked up some of his traits over the years.
I think that photo was taken way before Billie Eilish blew up.
Honestly, Billie Eilish is just what happens when mainstream media execs discovers "underground" alt/Tumblr aesthetics and the love for CC, but like…years too late.

Even her name. "Edith" is the name of Alice Liddell's little sister, in real life and in the Lewis Carrol books. This is veering on sperg, but>https://aliceinwonderland.fandom.com/wiki/Edith_Liddell>Some sources also report that she, not Alice, was used as a model for Carroll's original illustrations that he drew for Alice's Adventures Underground.
Seems like a passive-aggressive statement from Ethan right there. She definitely went for the same style/vibe as Alice, especially with the bob cut and sunglasses thing, and even the jacket.

i guess. i'm just repeating myself, but i think they just started in the same area of fashion. ethan was probably looking for another girl that had punk vibes to fill alice's shoes, and this just happened to be
edith's fashion choice. she's always dressed like this, so it's really hard for me to accept that she was "copying" alice.>>654385
tbh this would be really cute to me if if were true. edith definitely comes off as a little sister to alice as in she had some really big shoes to fill. i'd love to exist in a world without the drama where we could get a collab between alice/edith, it'd be pretty cute imo.

i'm 99% sure he left willingly to peruse a career with alice. they started dating ~2013 iirc, around the time health was canceling shows due to what i'm assuming was jupiter working on getting alice out of CC/being with her constantly.

I think it would've been better if she had gone with any of these three looks instead of Alice's same grungy vibe.
Hell, she looks more striking when she's dressed/styled completely basic.

Samefagging with another good look. This is distinct from Alice's thing while still being dark, and could've breathed new life into CC (though I don't know if any of the looks in the world could have saved CC after the scandal, the copycat allegations were just extra baggage).
Ethan is far too petty, and he just ended up vindicating what Alice said about him calling her "replaceable".
I never understood why the creators couldn't given them at least matching tights under those outfits
Then again nothing makes sense in anime
yeah, i get where you're coming from. i agree that she probably should have gone a more unique route, but i still feel like the fashion style she brought on stage was "her own", rather than just her straight up attempting to copy alice. if anything, i really don't think edith did any of it intentionally.
tbh ethan should have just dropped the entire project and made a new band with edith, or something. so much of this disdain from alice for edith could have probably been avoided had he just let it go and allowed alice to have some kind of power/ownership over CC. all of it just goes back to his massive ego and how he constantly tried to exert control over alice.
i think it was going to eventually come to light that ethan is/was a predator, but imo edith doesn't deserve any of the shit she gets. it just feels really cruel to sum edith up as nothing more than a clone meant to replace alice, which basically completely discredits her role as frontwoman.

>>654665>It limits the variety of clothing you can wear without looking dumpy even if you’re thin.
That's what I hate the most about being short. I'll never be fashionable and stylish no matter what and I hate it so much. Having small breasts that can't even fill an A-cup bra makes finding tops a nightmare when most of them show a little bit of cleavage because there's nothing to hold the fabric and you end up with you entire breasts out for all to see.
Then you have a shit ton of people who try not to judge on looks you can't easily control like your body type, your weight, your height, if you have deformities, etc. who definitely judge based on how you carry yourself, meaning if you can't wear most clothes and have to only wear ultra basic shit they'll treat you like that's your personality.
I was referring to in stores, I just climb on shit at home >>654719
I do style myself appropriately - that’s why I feel so limited, because there are so many rules to make me look less dumpy, it doesn’t leave many options for clothes I actually like. I don’t want to just wear what I like either, not at the expense of looking like shit
I just googled 'average height european women' and pasted the top of the search results but if we're gonna get picky about it…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Average_human_height_by_country
If you sort by average height for women, Euro countries show up mostly at the top of the list and 5'6 is average in many of them. I'm not arguing that 5'8 is the norm anywhere, but 5'2 is still below average.
File: 1602629926753.jpg (845.3 KB, 2940x4440, 1443036593-shoulder-pads.jpg)
Shoulder pads look bad most of the time. Who needs shoulder pads anymore? Who's shoulders are so depressed and concave that they need pads? They only look good with 70's/80's fashion. Like, pic related looks nice, but only cause the rest of the outfit is bold and matches the striking-ness of the pads.
I don't know how unpopular of an opinion this is (if it even is at all), but there's something really cringey to me about people who openly and publicly go in depth about all their horrible life experiences, all their traumas, how they've learned and grown from it all, etc, on social media. Like, I'm talking about people who just post paragraphs upon paragraphs of this shit on fb, in their captions on IG, etc. The message is always meant to be empowering, but I don't see how it actually is. It always comes off as really indulgent, attention-seeking and weirdly inauthentic to me. It also seems very image-based, like they actually want to be defined by all the bad things that have happened to them. I've also noticed that a lot of people who do this also have coaching practices, or believe in some new age bullshit, like "starseeds" and "indigo children" and the law of attraction. It's like they're trying to build a brand off of pain and suffering, and there's something absolutely icky and soulless about that to me.
I'm genuinely creeped out by people like this, but I don't know if they actually mean any harm, or if it's just a very different way of processing pain that I don't relate to and never will. I've definitely seen some shit myself, but I will only ever discuss my traumas with loved ones, or a therapist. I'm an extremely private person when it comes to my emotions, and the last thing I'd ever want is complete strangers knowing such personal information that they could easily use against me.

People who point fingers at large corporations when told to stop being wasteful aren't completely wrong (I also wish there would be more regulations on waste management and aggressive/deceptive marketing and greenwashing, especially on social media), but I also think it's a huge cope because they're so used to the instant gratification of consooming and don't want to stop because it's 'not their problem'.
Many don't realize just how much impact an individual has over production and manufacturing choices nowadays because they don't know how the supply chain works.
I work in SCM and many companies don't manufacture anything in-house anymore, especially in a heavy polluter industry like fashion.
Old news, but what people don't realize is that everything is run by AI:
>you buy a shirt
>sale is logged into a computer in hong kong
>hong kong computer compiles this info, sends it to the manufacturer
>manufacturer's computer AI calculates exactly how many shirts of the exact kind you bought and in the exact color to produce
>they make more shirts and send it to the store where you bought it
>next Monday, more shirts are in stock, no need for a warehouse
Likewise, if you buy more organic butter in plastic-free packaging, more of that will be made and less of the regular butter. I still think it's gross, all the cargo shipments are massive polluters and there's all those kids in Bangladesh, but companies like money and hate pissed off customers so the only ways to make a change at at the moment are either lobbying (which you can do if you join the citizens climate lobby, otherwise there's obviously a huge barrier of entry for normal people) or becoming the pissed off customer and voting with your dollar/writing emails en masse asking for better products.
I wish this wasn't the case but it is what it is and what-ifs don't really help the issue.
When it comes to fashion it's best to just buy secondhand online or go thrifting (I can give you good websites if you like), and buy quality things from artisans/locally sourced stores. AliExpress and online stores with "sustainable" clothing produced in China are just as bad as Zara and Walmart and thrive on people's ignorance on what sustainable even is.

>>655040>muh secondhand meme
Fast fashion spergs are on par with people who brag about their reusable metal straw. Secondhand stores are filled with the same zara crap as the regular stores now, you're not going to find vintage brand clothes surviving for all eternity like you would've pre-bangladesh. Buying artisan/designer clothing is way out of price range for a regular consumer.
Most people don't buy 10 tons of $1 wish rags every day like the worst vanity shopaholics and even those who do are able to do so because the corporations are making it possible and actively encouraging it
. Most of the co2 emissions are coming from the water/electricity production to run industries and transporting goods to begin with and it consumer behavior won't be changing it because it's the companies controlling it. For your basic consumer it's been made so much easier, cheaper and efficient to buy a new $15 shirt than spend hours trying to get the same piece of shit H&M one that fits you from a thrift store. While I totally agree about fast fashion being cancer placing the blame on consumers alone doesn't do any good, the ozone crisis in the 90's was averted only when ozone-depleting substances were banned in the industry globally, not by shaming customers for buying products containing them.
This>>655089>Fast fashion spergs are on par with people who brag about their reusable metal straw
Yes, both are a massive issue in 2020. If you feel inferior to people with metal straws maybe you should get one and assuage your guilt instead of being angry at people doing something about it, however vain.
>Secondhand stores are filled with the same zara crap as the regular stores now, you're not going to find vintage brand clothes surviving for all eternity like you would've pre-bangladesh.
Any used clothing will be cheaper than brand new and you won't be giving money to fast fashion retailers.
If you shop secondhand you can find quality brands at very affordable prices, even the fast fashion clothing that ends up there will be more durable and better quality than whatever you find in store if only because the really crappy ones are just thrown away. You don't have to spend money on a cute Zara top only for it to fall apart in the wash months later.
If you look on eBay, Mercari, Yahoo!Auctions, Depop, Etsy, Instagram, even Facebook Marketplace and just type in the name/size of an item you want, you're likely to find something good super cheap, or at least cheaper than new. In many secondhand shops you can look up items from the same seller so if you like someone's style or you wear the same size you know it'll fit you.
>even those who do are able to do so because the corporations are making it possible and actively encouraging it>Most of the co2 emissions are coming from the water/electricity production to run industries and transporting goods to begin with and it consumer behavior won't be changing it because it's the companies controlling it.
Yes, this is all what I mentioned in my original post. And everything you mentioned can only be stopped with citizens lobbying and/or shopping more consciously, because politicians don't prioritize it and only talk about sensationalist things that are guaranteed to drum up support (SJW issues, taxes).
These companies want
you to do nothing and feel powerless to stop them, it makes their job easier to just feed you whatever they convince you that you need.
My point is that your actions as a consumer actually matter more than you think in terms of your power to influence what they produce and how (and everyone should use it to make things better), not that the current climate cataclysm is your fault (because it isn't).
I don't know how things are where you live, but don't you have online charity shops where you can send your clothes, they measure and photograph them for you, and send you money when someone buys your items? I buy everything second hand because those stores in my country have sorting options for brands, size, colour etc and get new things every Wednesday so I always find something nice. Physical charity shops where I live are awful and only sell dead old people's rags but online stores are a godsend.
Check out beyond retro and petite vintage if you're not EU based, they have something similar for Anglo stores.
>>654859>Technique isn't everything
I think the words you're looking for are rendering.
The top piece has greater graphic appeal due to having greater value contrast, while the bottom has less contrast. The bottom piece has much more refined rendering, though. Each piece has their pros and cons, and the artist could certainly stamp out the problems of the bottom piece with more study and understanding of fundamentals.
A lot of thrift shops have hitched up their prices since thrifting became trendy. I used to thrift when I was broke but this was maybe 10 years ago, back then you actually found cheap, durable clothes you could use for ages. Now the prices are nearing what they would be as brand new because the piece needs to be in top condition in order to be sold. And because clothes aren't built to be durable these days, there aren't a lot of them. Second Hand has already become a multibillion dollar business and a new form of impulse buying and fast fashion for the consumers buying only the top percentile of the used clothes so calling it a solution isn't feasible. Brand clothes are expensive even when sold second hand, one look at Depop and those prices are not very competitive for your basic middle income consumer who has the option of getting a current season jacket for a fraction of the price.
The only way to really tackle the problem with fast fashion is to change the clothing industry by laws. I'm all for raising the clothing prices if it means better quality, better working conditions, recycled materials and less unused clothing waste. If the big fast fashion clothing gigabrands see people gravitating towards second hand, don't think they won't figure out a way to whitewash their supply chain or buy out the second hand dealers. Instead of guilt tripping individual consumers into buying second hand everyone should focus on pressuring the law changers to do something about it and combat the industry lobbyists.
>>655237>Zoomers are born between 1997 and 2012, so the oldest were 7-8 years old at most.
Isn't that.. basically the age range for Tokyo Mew Mew anyway? Its shitty child-friendly dub version was airing on 4kids for gods sake. >>655245
most thrift shops hiked up their prices because of inflation of the dollar. also prices vary from store to store and whether you're in a high traffic location or not. i've been going to the same salvation army for years and i can still find a unisex shirt ranging from 99 cents to six dollars.
also, second hand selling is perfect for low income families and it is how a lot of us get back on our feet. you got middle class consumerists paying double and triple digits for something someone paid single digits for because they feel entitled to get with the thrift trend. a win-win situation.
Thanks, anon!>pgster3000>I have known Claude since I was 15. I've toured with them and lived with them. It's hard to relegate it down to statements but I will try. He is 10 years older than her and they met when she was 16 and she was a fan of his band. Their dynamic has always been "he's the older male who knows best" and was in charge of the final decisions on all levels of life and music. He took advantage of that trust. He would tell her half truths and misinformation to maintain power.
This weirds me out, because everywhere else says Alice and Ethan met when she was 14. Who's lying?
I'm not American, but the 4Kids English dub was aired where I live.
It's a zoomer thing. Sailor Moon is more for millenials and older, though many zoomers did also watch that.
This, plus it differs based on location.
Where I live thrifting is dirt cheap and you can always buy from Japan or Korea where they practically give some things away. Sure, shipping is involved but it's still loads better than buying new.
Depop is notorious for being full of scalpers and resellers, it shouldn't be used as a yardstick for prices.
I'm really glad it's become trendy because I used to get made fun of as a kid for wearing hand-me-downs and not name-brands.>>655127>don't think they won't figure out a way to whitewash their supply chain or buy out the second hand dealers
This is already happening, just fyi.
This doesn't mean that buying second-hand doesn't make a difference, quite the opposite. Barriers to entry are lower than ever and now you have even more shitty fast fashion brands from markets like Poland and Turkey where income levels aren't that high so they become popular and grow fast. Even used clothing isn't as cheap as some of those garments but that doesn't mean people should be buying them more.

Right, as I mentioned in both my posts.
So then your point is moot. Not only does location makes difference, socioeconomic bg also influence when a kid gets exposed to certain media.
Where I'm from Sailor moon is 80's kids thing and Tokyo Mew Mew is early-mid 90's kids as it aired in the early 00's. Sailor Moon is way longer running and iconic so kids of every decade since got to see/read it.
Anyway, I only consider 00's babies to be zoomers.
I wasn't the anon you were arguing with, I just pointed out it's not an American thing.
Tokyo Mew Mew is just for zoomers. The manga came out in the 2000s in Japan, not early-mid 90s (lmao), the anime first came out in 2002, then aired everywhere else like years later, 2005 for Americans, 2006 and later for some other countries (I'd even say 2009). Zoomers grew up with it, 90s kids were basically already aged out and remembering SM fondly.
Zoomer years are from 1997 on, according to pretty much every source. Deal with it.
