For everyone who wants to move on with their life outside of lolcow, aka graduating.
Here is where we thank the website that accompanied us for months or years of our life, and we finally say one last goodbye to never look back. Try to not bring negativity into the thread.

I don't really plan on leaving lolcow just yet because I'm just used to it and I find it useful but this thread seems interesting:
>Your favorite lolcows
I started coming here because of the thread about Emily Hu, then I remember mostly reading threads about American popular artists on twitter and tumblr like her, Omocat, the general artist thread on /snow/. I also liked the thread about Alison Rapp, Tess Holliday and that one Swedish tranny sperg who would write super long essais about how problematic FE Fates is and how lesbians lolis in Love Live are kawaii and relatable but their threads on KF had way more info. Momokun's first threads were entertaining but it's been a long time since it devolved in discussions only about how fat she is because she's not on twitter anymore. Nowadays I mostly read the FTM and MTF threads and sometimes the one about Jeffree Star.

>What thread you loved the most

If we're talking about cows then I liked the ones about makeup gurus when there was more milk all of a sudden, and I only really read the ones about trannies. On /m/ I like the video game ones because /v/ is shit and on /ot/ I like the dumbass thread.

>How much time did you spent here

It's been like 5 years I think. I was still in university back then and still a tumblrina pissed that fandoms turned to shit at the time and I remember there was a thread about tumblr where I'd regularly complain about it with other anons. I mostly lurk cow threads and post on /ot/ and /m/. I got here everyday because there's barely anything to do at my job because of the pandemic so I have time to kill at the office.

>What are you looking foward in the future

I don't know, almost all my plans in life were ruined before the pandemic or because of it, now I'm just living my everyday life without making any plans. I already somewhat succeeded in getting rid of social media accounts, but I don't consider lolcow as as bad as social media like tumblr or twitter.

>Would you come here occasionally

I already am doing it, but if I didn't have enough time to keep posting here I guess I'd only come here from time to time very quickly.

What about you OP? Do you actually plan to leave or you're just kinda considering it?

I got bored at work so here's a long ass list of the dumb shit I read on KF. I have an autistic fascination with gross and retarded things.

Threads I keep up with:
-Kevin Gibes (tranny pervert, current fav)
-Stephanie Cianfriglia (the womb wizard)
-Kelly Ronahan (munchie that will not stop fucking with legs. Posts nasty pictures and videos of her wounds)
-Tess Holliday (white trash HAES EYBS "model")
-Amanda Turcol (she's been described as female chris chan)
-WogglebugLoveProductions (autistic woman obssessed with obscure wizard of oz character, pic related)

Threads I only occasionally look at when I remember them:
-Tearzah Hayes (pastel goth artist dollieguts)
-Abby Brown (I check her thread for updates on her and to read about the crazy Facebook losers that hate her)
-Ashley Isaacs (also for updates)
-Manic Pixie Nightmare Girls (tranny cartoonist that made New Guy)
-Kayla Marie Waller (tumblrina, not very interesting. I check the thread every so often to see if she's changed, the answer is always no)
-Jennifer Gwen Ann Armstrong (deathfat with a hobosexual alkie bf, got bored)
-Kelly Lenza (obese woman posts selfies that are intentionally as ugly as possible, got bored and grossed out at the same time)

Threads I used to read but don't anymore for one reason or another:
-Chloe Wilkinson (DID larper, deleted everything and went into hiding)
-Jazz Jennings (trans kid, his show I Am Jazz is probably over so there aren't many updates)
-Desmond is Amazing (drag kid, not many updates, just makes me angry/sad)
-Schofield Productions (munchie parents insist their kids are schizo, drugs them into disability. Depressing, there's no happy ending.)
-Anna Johnson (vegan anorexic that purged her way into a colostomy bag, just got bored of her)
-Jonathan Yaniv (I could only take so much)
-Jude Valentin (entitled HAES woman-child trying to make a living as a successful twitch streamer. Boring and irritating)
-Amy Ramadan (white trash muslim deathfat, beats her kids with a wooden spoon, stopped being funny)

Specialized threads that aren't about a specific person, self explanatory:
-Munchausen's by Internet
-Tard Baby General
-Personal Lolcows: Tumblr Edition
-Dissociative identity disorder on tumblr
-Enbie (non-binary genders) on tumblr
-Tranny Sideshows on Social Media
-SJW Art and Extremes
-Plurals / Clusters / Systems
-Fat Acceptance Movement / Fat Girlcows
-Random Pics and Gifs

Everyday I outgrow this website more and more and I'm a bit sad about that.

Drama is not entretaining anymore
I get to talk to other women who think like me but there's so much infighting
It's nice to ask for advice and recieve it but at what point can people from here truly help me
I love looking at new resources that lovely anons sometimes post but idk, its not like I see actual interesting stuff all the time
I love having people to talk to anonimously but this site also carries the risk of admins compiling all your posts
And I need to move on with my life to get a job and make all my goals come true etc
I think I'm just addicted to coming here, yeah it sounds dumb but I am prone to getting addicted to webpages very easily

Idk, what do.

No. 696107

God, anon, but this could have been written by me. A thousand times yes. I'm sick of the site too, but I keep coming back for the advice and comfort. I wish there was a way to enjoy the anonymity while also being able to connect to individual farmers for friendship. I posted in the lolcow friend finder thread ages ago, but idk how to Discord and nothing came from it bc it's just anon chat, relocated but with screennames. It's like I keep coming back here to get things I'm not getting from friendships, but trying to meet people from here is impossible somehow. Posting on lolcow and talking to anons is chill and comfortable, talking about the same stuff with those same anons on discord just… isn't, somehow.

My focus went from specific cows to general drama and wank.

>What thread you loved the most

The vent thread, personal lolcow thread, historical figure lolcows. Once upon a time we had a shortlived selfpost thread that was pure gold.

>How much time did you spent here

I don't even know how long it's been, I came here from /cgl/ during the height of the Dakota Drama when she was banned from being ppsted or discussed there, so 5-6 years ig.

From lolcow? I don't have high hopes for this site ever becoming much more than it is now.

I mostly use the ot/g/m threads more than any drama boards lately. I'm in my mid 20s and have a career and normal life now and can't easily remain engaged with dirt about random e girls any more but its so nice to have a place to talk to other snarky female autists. I also couldn't really get into the lolcow discord because the vibe is so different from the main boards, a ton of weird infighting. Where do we go??

No. 696667

If I had the resources (aka money), I would make my own all female imageboard. But I just don't know if people would be interested, lolcow doesn't have that many users I feel like, and ahserasgarden is pretty empty.

I think the problem with trying to make something that advertises itself as an exclusive space for women is that men will always invade and try to agenda push. See: crystal.cafe.

It's better to have a space with a traditionally female interest/hobby zone that men are more likely to not be interested in. The whole reason LC even exists as it is is because it was an offshoot from /cgl/ (more female orientated hobbyist space) and gossip threads.

I'm doing this on a whim but, I think it's finally time for me to leave. I've had fun here, but I need to stop wasting so much of my 20s and time and braincells here. There's another gossip website I visit, but the community is more likeminded for me, and I don't waste as much time there. I was just gonna leave, but I feel like making this post really means I have to commit to this and gtfo.

Settling in my career, spending more time on my hobbies and working on my mental health. Also hopefully acquiring an animal companion. That's all basic stuff, but I think I'll be more productive.

i don't really want to come here any more but I don't want to stop connecting with women anonymously. I found this place several years ago after googling Onision. I followed some of the drama in other threads but now I mostly feel kind of sorry for the cows, nobody posting all their shit online is mentally well whether you're an 'influencer' or a cow. Ten years ago I would read about lolcows on encyclopedia dramatica, and the internet is an extremely different place now.
It's probably because of lockdown but there's been tons more gen Zers failing to integrate. And I'm generally more uncomfortable with the idea that the comfy discussion I've been having with any anon might be a male LARPing.

I have asked mods, and they didn't permaban me or anything. I'm still here.
Even /ot/, /m/ and /g/ are getting on my nerves, it feels grating to come here sometimes, I can only imagine it getting worse. It's not even the borzoi or driver posters, because I quite frankly think they add to the imageboard culture, and that's always interesting and fun to watch, every other imageboard has its own lingo and memes and I quite frankly find the ones here endearing, and the anons getting mad at them kinda silly themselves. But that's the thing, there's a lot of negativity and people who infight out of nowhere, and then the anons who minimod or try to "keep the status quo" when an imageboard is meant to mutate over time. Just how many posters in the earlier years of lolcow were anachans and very nitpicky, now we have a lot of radfems and terfs. I feel like in the future, lolcow posters will become different again. I always see anons on the pixielocks thread being a bit of libfems, etc. And then there's some anons that are so angry that I'd rather not interact with. I'm here for the girls who post random memes and are unapologetically themselves, the ones who just sound dumb and own it. I love that. I love this kind of interaction between women.

Sadly I'm not interested in milk much, and I don't like hanging out with crazy people, but this made me realize again that people here are definetely no better than cows. Maybe cows are a bit better because at least they don't hide their crazy with anonimity. Or whatever. I used to feel bad about the poor sad anons here and feel part of some sort of sisterhood but man, what a depressive shithole this is. It's a wanna be "safe space" but ridden with hostility.

I have taken month long breaks here and there, but i’m going to make it a resolution of mine to stay off all gossip websites and reddit for at least half a year after coming and going for the last few years. who knows, maybe i’ll never be back. i’ve come to realize these sites get me into nasty habits of checking in on my old cow friends that were really awful to me and i should just put them out of my life completely. it’s not good for me and is really distracting me from living in the moment and focusing on my own life instead of what they’re up to in theirs.

my only fave cow was pixielocks and i can always keep up with the milk away from away from this website if i’m really thirsting for it. i’m mostly going to be sad about not having an anonymous place to vent about various things I can’t share anywhere else but hopefully keeping out of gossip and drama will lessen those needs to just throw it all out there, maybe i’ll let myself come here just to vent but that might be too much of a temptation. idk yet.

it’s been real, hopefully i won’t see any of you on the other side.

Honestly I feel like using lolcow is way more rewarding and less of a waste of time than browsing 4chan. In the end both sites are timesinks and probably bad to use a lot, but for me spending time here is like a better alternative to browsing 4chan for ages. People here generally give more thought out responses and advice and threads stay up for a longer time, so I can come back every few days and read on from where I left off. Following specific threads in /snow/ and /w/ feels like I'm getting invested in a longer kind of story almost. That makes it feel like less of a waste of time than reading and contributing to a bunch of little 4chan threads that disappear in a few hours anyway.
It's the lesser evil to some extent. I can understand that the endless nitpicking affects peoples self esteem, but so does the influx of woman hate on other sites.

I don’t really get this particularly, I mean, why take it personally? The people posting here are just saying whatever they want without any terrible social consequences, being the “worse” getting banned from the site.
It’s not like we’re posting pictures of ourselves and asking for everyone to rate them and such.
And if it’s because of the people nitpicking about the cows, they’re talking about the cows, not everyone will find them attractive and not everyone will think what they do is actually not that bad and whatnot.

Plenty of people posted are genuinely attractive or at least average, yet farmers will act as if any slight imperfection makes someone hideous. A pretty girl with slight smile lines will get called haggard, basically any nose is 'unfortunate', etc. Every once in a while someone is so good looking that even farmers can't find anything ugly about them, in which case they are dubbed 'average'. Calling any cow pretty will usually lead to accusations of whiteknighting or selfposting.
This creates an incredibly skewed perception of what is considered normal or average. When you read that sort of discourse on the regular, thoughts like 'if her nose is already considered big, mine must be gargantuan' pop up. It's easy to lose sight of the bigger picture and think that people irl have the same insane standards and secretly judge you the same way as they would on here. Before you know it you're extremely self-conscious about something like a slightly square jaw, because any chin that isn't completely dainty gets called mannish on here, whereas in reality it's so mild that nobody would notice that or think anything of it.

I get what you mean and obviously you have to be prone to insecurity to take it that seriously, but all the exaggerated bashing of perfectly normal features isn't going to make you feel better about your own.

kek, this is the funniest and most infuriating thing about lolcow. Posters on here have absolutely no idea what the words 'average' and 'plain' mean. Truly plain faced girls are hideously, irredeemably ugly, and any woman who's good looking enough to at least be a catalog model is plain. It's actually disturbing to see how warped perceptions are on here sometimes.

No. 705222

NTA but it's just pointless, repetitive, boring and stinks of underage. I don't see the value in making fun of others' appearances when they're hideous people otherwise or unless it's related to their bad delusional personality like Momokun getting tons of lipo and ending up looking like Donkey Kong, and even that got stale. But when 80% of the "milk" is just talking about how a cow looks haggard for having smile lines or how she's a fat fuck because she got a single stomach roll when sitting down it clogs up the thread when you could be saving the space for more intelligent discussion.

No. 707129

It's by little-tunny on tumblr, also known as Gogarty.

I think it's a bit of a vicious cycle. You see all the nitpicking and it makes you more self conscious and focused on looks, which in turn causes you to notice and post about tiny physical imperfections that you wouldn't have considered before, eventually becoming part of the problem.
I can't say I've ever made these types of posts before, but I have caught myself thinking 'ouch, that face is rough' at photos of for example Pixielocks, even though her looks are entirely normal.

No. 730634

This, for some reason this always happens.


Sometimes I feel like lolcow has the potential to be as big as 4chan but I'm not sure if that would be good or not. Tbh I wish we had well moderated GC threads where we could tell people to hide the thread and not be retarded, but for some reason that basic kind of moderation isn't allowed when it comes to those topics? I guess because lolcow wants to be free of ideologies but is it really?

No. 733100

If you look at Alythuh's posted images vs. her tagged photos from other people, she looks different. She shoops so much, people are disappointed her proportions and face don't match her images. Farmers drag her for her r/InstagramReality worthy photos , which makes her real face look plain even when it's just fine. She's just probably insecure of herself, really.

Back to topic. I've stayed off of most cows' threads because it's such a time rabbit hole. I only go back to lolcow because it's anonymous and easier to access & read. Also there's barely any internal drama, compared to PULL, GG, etc. I only get to check on the cows if I randomly thought of them after a while or if something about them came up on my timeline kek.

I love the current imageboard culture we have in lolcow, truly an anti-male statement, love it. Hate the genderspecial twitterfag infiltration in some threads though, wish they could die.

But goddamn today was a tired day for me. Couldn't read any thread because literally every single thread was plagued with the same infighting, even meta has a tini tiny post that calls us feral animals. I won't continue the discourse, and I expect you not to either, because I'm tired, and I don't want to argue anymore. It gave me a headache, it made me want to throw up, I haven't been this upset in ages, my shoulders hurt from the stress. And I don't want any other woman in this website to feel the same way. I want to stop infighting, I want to support everyone, even the ones I don't agree with. I just get so upset when women are insulted. I hate seeing people defending those insults. I'm so tired.

I wanted to quit lolcow for so long but I keep coming back, this website is like my 4chan. I need somewhere to talk to others because I'm so damn alone, and there's topics I can't talk with other people irl or online. It has to be here. There's some real nice women here and we don't even know each other, and we don't have to. I wish I could give a hug to every single person who has been nice to me here, cause I appreciate it so much. But then I think to myself, what if the people that were nice to me infighted with me once? Idk, I'd rather ignore it and keep myself optimistic. I'm so tired… I'm so tired of everywhere I look, everything turns out to shit… I want to stop having to see so much doomer shit everywhere, I want this upside down timeline to stop… I just want to be happy, not oblivious, but optimistic and thinking everyone could be a good person if they really wanted to. I want to believe women are nice. I also want to believe men can be nice but that's besides the point. I want to believe in a better world. I don't know anymore… I want to quit this website, somehow.

No. 766189

While I understand what you mean and get angry at infighting myself I still like having a place where I can be vulgar and actually have a fight without pulling punches. Women are always expected to be mindful of others even during confrontation so it's immensely liberating to be able to tell a troon to fuck off or make fun of a bitch being dumb. The site has made me much less afraid of confrontation and I feel that's a very important skill to learn.

Huge shout out to TND, who led me here when GuruGossip proved to be inadequate and I needed my nitpick fix.
I was here for the very first Pheebz post in personal cows and yes, she became my absolute holy cow.
Wandering around the farm waiting for Pheebz to update her stories (usually 15 minutes) I discovered Vicky and man, what an underrated gem. She always gives me hearty keks, I even read her whole back catalogue and it taught me a bit about tattooing and day drinking, too. Special mention for the hours she spent posing in the snow with an unopened bottle of champagne, and that time she lied about tattooing her own face.

2-3 years, so I'm on the newer side considering this sites history. I spend 1 hour a day here average, 2+ if I'm bored. Last year I quit the site for 6 months because I was busy, missed the whole "OT is shutdown drama", but I'm back on.
>What are you looking foward in the future
Want to focus more on my classes, post art online, and spend more time on my hobbies (art, reading, code). I'd rather read then spend my time on LC. To relax I'd rather just watch a random show then browse this site
>Would you come here occasionally
Basically I have no self control, so the only way for me to use sites is to quit them entirely. The only real reason I use this is for venting my dumb annoyances which would get "just let people have fun" on any other site. I might be able to visit LC once a week
>Why quit?
I think my main problem is LC gets derailed to easily. I've skipped browsing the sites somedays because I see one bad post that will derail the thread so hard no other topics can take place. It's a weakness of LC having a few active threads
Also said deraling isn't even good. LC debates have the school debate feeling. You know how everyone is talking out of there ass with a dangerous amount of confidence while thinking random yt sperg =research. I've never felt anyone debating on LC new basic info on what they're debating. This is true of all sites, but on LC it's worse because it attracts more neets.

I've really enjoyed LC, especially during the quarantine, because I needed these interactions and to be able to talk to someone. The fact that there are no men here is my favorite thing, and majority of anons have been so kind, funny and interesting
I've learnt a lot of different things here, too. I don't regret coming to this site at all
However, I can't ignore that I've wasted a lot of time here and that in the end, it doesn't add that much direct value to my life. I've even become more judgmental, negative and critical of others, something I'm ashamed of and really want to change.
Also, I have this feeling of numbness on my brain, like I have collected all this useless information that I've absorded from here, and is taking so much space.
I want to invest in my life, my habits, my relationships, my health, my career and studies. The thought of looking back to my youth and just having so many memories of being glued to a screen, consuming this content; instead of doing sane, wholesome things that make me progress and improve, scares me.
It's not surprise that more often than not, I've felt like shit after visiting the site and procrastinated on important, personal things in favour of being here
I've also reflected on how it has affected my cognitive capacities, along with social media, and I simply can't have it anymore.
All in all, the cons of being here are bigger than the pros, and I feel like I've outgrown this place. I keep coming back, much less than before, because I've gotten used to it and made it a habit but it's just not worth it anymore

I'm looking foward to becoming a more considerate person and not being influenced by the stuff talked about here. I'm also excited to being more productive with my time and taking care of my soul
> Would you come here occasionally

It's the start of a new year where I'm from and I've decided this is as good a time as any to quit visiting this place once and for all. The general board culture and it's gradual gravitation towards twitter faggotry has really put me off from using Lolcow lately. Incidentally, I've found other smaller imageboards that suit my palate a bit better. I figure it's time for me to move on to greener pastures heh

I actually really enjoyed lc. It's a women-only space, which is something that's near impossible to find now. This board, weirdly enough, gave me the female presence in my life I felt that I needed but never got until i discovered this place.
But this place is also a gigantic time sinkhole. I don't realise it when I just refresh the same 5 boards for 3, 4, 5 hours, and when I do, the time for actually doing more productive things is, of course, lost to the sands of time. Shitposting here when you have an hour of free time is fun, but its extremely unhealthy when it becomes a habit, and sometimes lc made me want to kill myself when i realised how much of my time it wasted. I just want to remember my youth as a time where I interacted with the outside world and became… Someone! Not a time when I stared at a screen and seethed at whoever. It's a fun place to visit, but a miserable place to live.

Probably Shoe, Varg, the whole tradthot thread, and especially gimpgirl's - i've been following her ever since she was posted on one of the reddit hate threads. I was so morbidly intrigued that I ended up asking her for 'lifestyle advice', and she actually gave me some. I deleted my reddit account where we had that mini-chat (and thank god), so you'll just have to take my word for it. I always felt really bad for her, but at this point I just hope her kids get taken away from both of their parents, lol.
>What thread you loved the most
Not even gonna lie, I'm a filthy /g/ poster. The unconventional/attractive men/women threads gave me a sense of catharsis. Also, I'm bisexual, and my country has a pretty strong anti-LGB sentiment, so I needed to get my thirst out somewhere. Femdom thread, too. Yeah, im a work of art, i know. Other than that, the MTF/FTM threads peaked me (and also gave me a really unhealthy obsession with researching trans agenda topics), so that was fun.
>How much time did you spent here
Around 2, almost 3 years, which is embarrassing.

Hopefully becoming very slightly more of a normie in a good way, greater and faster improvement in my creative endeavours, choosing and sticking to an actual career, seriously studying for school, growing up and moving on.

*This board is for women who don't feel like they fit anywhere else. Be your unfiltered self without worrying about people judging you. No porn or gore allowed (blood and nudity depictions must be tasteful). No self harm, pro-suicide or thinspo threads.
**This board is for hot shit. It's strictly moderated, everything that is nsfw must be spoilered and we have a 0 tolerance policy for contentious content, including loli, shota, hardcore porn, dubious consent, furry, scat, gore, torture and rape. This goes for drawn media as well.
*For talk about feminism outside of radical feminism (like ecofeminism etc)

Also /fash/! I know we have a couple here but with a whole board, it would perhaps be more active. Reddit fashion subs, /fa/ (too male) and fashion spot etc all fail to to be the right mix of interesting / informative

Definetely adding /fash/ and /health/!
I wish, maaaaybe, I could make a mockup of it, but don't trust me please. I have ADHD and I tend to come up with ideas and never following through lol. Plus I have 0 coding experience, I would need some other anon to guide me and then someone else who would want to be admin cause I'm not administrating that shit in its entirety lol. But I can make a mockup for sure when I have time.

sisterchan is very cute! For me this place would be somewhere all women can be free to be themselves no matter the ideology they have.
I think I might also add another art board for people who are more on the professional side of the business, it might be fun.

I hate to blame it on anyone but the scrotes, but admin is kinda lazy and I feel like that might contribute to how bad this has been. Luckily, I've been fortunate enough to not see anything but gore for like 2 months. Anons in meta were saying the last pic was serious, so I hope they are actually contacting whatever authorities they can.

Ok I came here to add more stuff to the general idea of what this imageboard might be

I'll add these visible boards
/pic/ - Picture Dump, to dump a large ammount of pictures of any kind, including wallpapers for example
/srs/ - For women interested into discussing things like philosophy, maths, history, coding, psychology, language learning, etc
/fash/ - Fashion generals
/alt/ - Alternative fashion (including jfashion)
/celeb/ - Celebrity talk

Hidden boards to be added
/blp/ - For blackpilled feminism (containment board so it doesn't mix with pp)
I also wanna mention, /degen/ is for women to discuss their personal problems or stuff without being judged. For example, detransitioned women, or women who were groomed from childhood and cope in weird ways, etc. For women who feel like they don't belong and want to be unapologetically insane. It will be a judgement free zone, I hope everyone likes it! It comes from a place of love and wanting to get better.
But a lot of people might not like this board and might go there to purposedly infight, so I think I'm also adding another hidden board called /vent/ (working title, I need suggestions), it's a board to talk about things you hate and dislike, and if you see a topic on /degen/ you absolutely hate, you vent and don't cause an infight. Venting is also important for your soul to feel free so this is why I think it's good to add it.

Besides that, I think that's it? I just want this place to be for every woman no matter the background or lifestyle they live. Of course, shit like racebaiting, posting illegal shit and disgusting porn, or being super nasty is off limits. Like, you can talk about anything but don't post ugly crap like hentai womb tattoo fetish or whatever, just talk about it if you really must without everyone else having to see it. I also want to implement a system that unless you have 500 posts on the other boards, you cannot post on the hidden ones even if you have the link, this will prevent spam and scrotes wanting to invade.
In /hot/ you can freely upload things like, idk, movie sex scenes. Or tasteful porn (I'm anti porn myself but I know other women might not be). Or hot yaoi guys if you like them. But anything that degrades women is off limits. I hope it makes sense?
I also want to implement a rule where you can call other anons scrotes and report for scrotery and any sign of proven scrotery will result in a permaban of the scrote, but baseless asumptions of scrotery will result in a 30 minute ban on your behalf. For example, a woman saying something nlog-ish won't be banned, but a scrote instantly will.

Anyways, sorry for sperging. Hoping maybe one day I'll get to do a mock up of this. But I don't promise anything lol

I've been getting into art again and I recently realised it makes me super happy. I stopped drawing a long time ago because I thought I was a bad person. Lolcow made me paranoid and think I was a bad person because I kept comparing myself to cows.

Drawing entretains me, it makes me super happy, it feels like I'm me when I draw. I never followed the art salt thread because I think those people don't really love art, nor the cows or the posters. Me not being able to draw for a long time because I hated myself because I thought I was a cow that would be eventually posted here was a big mistake. I'm finally free from that…

Anyways, I think visiting this website made me be more bitter. There's some upsides to lolcow but honestly spending time here reminds me of how depressed I am/was. I just want to move on and look into a brighter future!

I relate to this a lot. I feel like since I've started using LC, it's made me more negative and funnily enough, I made a post here saying I was gonna quit, but came back. Something about this site is addictive to me, which is weird because websites like KF, 4chan, CC, and AG have never been appealing to me in any way. Anyway, I know you won't see this, but I hope you enjoy your time away!

Why the fuck am I not drawing, or animating, or writing or designing instead of scrolling through the same threads making fun of people? since when did I care so much about what other people do? Or what they say, or what they might think about me?? What the actual fuck?

Why did I let lolcow consume all my thoughts?
Why do I still keep coming back?
Why do I care so much about some memes, gossip, advice etc? If I can have better things somewhere in my life.
I mean yes I love the advice the radfems give, being radfem leaning myself. I love the niceness of some anons… but like… Why do I still keep coming when I have better things to do?

Nonsense. I want to do better things with my life.

Seen it and while I liked it a lot, I do not think it's realistic for me to subscribe to the 'there's no free time' line of thought and only do productive stuff 24/7. It kinda makes me think of how there are people that claim that video games are a waste of time and it seems crazy to me. If consuming media is a waste of time, the fuck am I supposed to do? Work and brainwash myself with self-help podcasts all the time? Entertainment is necessary too, though in a healthy dose. It absolutely is good to step back if you feel like are wasting too much time on lolcow.

>If consuming media is a waste of time, the fuck am I supposed to do? Work and brainwash myself with self-help podcasts all the time?
And it straight up doesn't make sense. If someone else's version of "productive" is to create art and media for other people to consume so they can afford a living for example, then what happens to them under this logic?

Because everyone needs some downtime girl! If it's not all encompassing and just a de-stress sort of th ing, it's healthy to relax and decompress sometimes. That being said, sweet post and I'm glad it made you feel something. I haven't watched it yet myself but I'm getting there

No. 777955

AYRT and I like consuming media a lot-
but for me being on lolcow isn't consuming media; there's so many good movies, books and videogames to watch but instead I'm gossiping. I think I should be better than this, I should really invest my time into some better hobbies to be frank

Also I'm very unproductive myself, I love creating for the fun of it but I'm just sleeping and browsing youtube/lolcow all the time. Like I said I love you all nonas but… maybe I should put down this website for a while… I hope you all have a nice time here though!

No. 777961

NTA For me the problem is that I can meme anything into being an almost all-time consuming fixation. If I put down lolcow, I can just make reading and discussing and shitposting about some series into a full time activity outside work, or basically anything, instead of developing any skills. The core of the problem doesn't change, in that I'm avoiding doing less fun and harder things for easy distractions.

I think I'm finally gonna leave this site. I've been browsing for 3 years or so, and I feel like overall LC has had a negative impact on my life. I've said this in a post from a different thread, but I don't understand what makes site so addictive to me, because I don't truly love it here. It'll be hard to break the "addiction" of browsing but I think I will be a lot happier when I'm not wasting time here, but being productive and working on things like my hobbies and work/school instead. I am a little worried that I will just replace wasting time on LC with wasting (more) time on social media, but I think I'll be fine. and ngl, what pushed me to finally stop coming here is seeing an anon say she wants to start a site for suicide tips and some anons encouraging it.

Do you listen to something while browsing? Listening to music also counts, but I guess instrumentals aren't as bad. Wasting time on mindless scrolling has been a plague and really hard to break (imo, I have a general addiction), but I tried to stop listening to stuff and it has helped me to stay grounded and be aware of the time that passes, instead of zoning out for hours. i only started doing it recently, so I can't vouch for it, but if you do the same thing, you could also try it. Also it has helped me to concentrate and focus for longer when I do projects.

As someone who attempted suicide multiple times and am now mostly glad that they were never successful, I thought about writing a post in response but I doubt anyone would have cared. The type of people who support suicide are often content living with their defeatist mindsets even though they'll probably deny it and blame external circumstances. They actively choose it for themselves by never seeking out ways to change and become a stronger person.

No. 778368

I used to be suicidal and I would like to read your post about it anon. I remember I used to check out websites on how to effectively off myself all the time. These sites already are a thing, those anons just want to continue the cycle of people dying.

No. 778423

I was going to say that nobody who's suicidal truly wants to die at the crux of the matter. People don't wish for death just for the fuck of it. We do it because living a better life seems so impossible that death feels like a better solution to end our suffering. I was suicidal as a child and teen because I had a shitty abusive family who neglected my mental health. If we could travel back to a decade ago and give the younger version of myself the option of a successful suicide or a happy and loving family, I can say with certainty I would have chosen the latter.

Yee I'm aware those sites exist which is part of the reason why I thought it was pointless to respond anyway.

Getting a job and moving out, getting fit, spending more time on my hobbies which are literature, film, guitar, outdoor activities, etc.

too much, and frankly some of that I should've spent doing something else. I really fell into this rabbit hole where at the worst times of my life it felt second nature to resort to using lc as a repository for my shit thoughts. I have a terrible home life, my family sucks, and I felt disconnected from my friends for awhile, so lolcow was often my crutch during mental downtimes

>what are you looking foward in the future

my life after quarantine hopefully getting itself together, to get my degree and work in my desired industry. Don't wish to be the loser I thought of myself being a few years ago, to succeed in life if I can. If not I want at least one of my manifested dreams to come true, and I can somehow die by myself with purpose fulfilled if I don't otherwise succeed.

>would you come here occasionally

after leaving for awhile I came back on and off cuz of the bella janke drama and still peep threads. given what I might be doing in the future is demanding, I may not have time to come back much

I want to have my manifested dreams come true and I would love for life to go my way, I doubt it will but I hold out for my desires to land. I think by remaining here if the site is truly dying, I'm flushing potential and positive energies down the toilet. Maybe one day my presence will be immortalized somewhere or someone will remember me. I'm not sure how long I'll live. I predicted things for myself that I now doubt and fear, I am trying to live a life outside of the excessive amount of time I used to spend on lc and the internet. Like I hate myself for lack of productivity and verifying my existence in ways that'll lead to success and not failure. I was glad that amid disagreement and controversy and abuse in my life that I had you all, even if we didn't always see eye to eye. I'm sure there are some people here that are truly worse off than me, the site made me realize that, I'm a broken and shitty person, but I believe I can succeed if I really try and stop wasting time. there are a lot of evil and heinous things lurking at the back of our minds, and embarrassing things that don't necessarily befit those descriptors, but all things we can't state aloud. I understand why people flock here. As aforementioned this site would sometimes be a repository for my own embarrassment. Thank you for putting up with me nonas, wish me luck with my life as it goes ahead. I have decided there's a lot I would change about myself if I could go back, even in the last year and a half of quarantine hell, but sadly I can't

Been here since 2016, I've wasted so much time here. I've been trying to quit for a while now. I'll miss being able to come here to complain about scrotes and trannies, but maybe I need to find a healthier way to channel my anger at this world. In the past I've gotten over my urge to come here by first thinking about how it would make me feel, and what it would accomplish. Every time I think about it I realize that coming here makes me feel like shit. The only reason I came back was because I had some issues in my personal life, and browsing LC has become like a coping mechanism/self harm for me.

As I’ve gotten my life back together, I’ve been slowly leaving the past few months only to lurk a few threads for a couple minutes and possibly leave a few posts every once in a while. Maybe this already counts as graduation. I don’t think I would ever completely leave no matter how hard I try. I’ve found out that this website would have to officially die for me to permanently stop coming here, neetdom or otherwise. Between the first and second year I spent tens if not hundreds of accumulated hours on lc. This post will likely be the catalyst to make me use it again even more.

I've been here since staminarose fell in….2014 I think?
I don't browse or post as I used to, but I'm still here. I was only 20 back then and now I am 27, have gone through a lot while being a part of this site.

I usually just browse /ot/ and /m/ nowadays but favorite cows used to be Kiki and Kota, Ashley (spooky skeleton), various weebs from 2014/2015 like yukapon, himezawa etc, euthanizeallwhitepeople (that thread was a blast lmao) and of course Queen PT. I think the last time I was active on following a cow was shoe0nhead.

Site does feel different as it kind of was just an a gossip imageboard extension of 4chan's /cgl/ and everyone and everything could be posted at first but as traffic became bigger, more rules popped up so it's understandable.

Anyways I don't think I'll ever completely stop browsing this site unless it dies. I am content knowing there is an anonymous image board where I can post freely and vent without it being scrote central.

Anyways I went to a little nostalgia trip through /pt/ archive and found one of the oldest threads on this site that I remember lol.

Lolcow has a very special place in my heart. I grew up on /cgl/ and eventually found out this place in 2015. This place helped me open my eyes to many things… like how not to be an attention whore (kek) and why you should be wary of men.

But also, going on here feels like a drug to me. I think I have an addiction to the internet because my real life is very shitty. Poor, living with my abusive brother, not being able to move out, on the verge of neetdom. This place keeps me both "sane" and "depressed" at the same time. I love venting here and not telling shit to my friends so I don't bother them… but then I spend way too much time here instead of doing what I really want with my life. I want to be an artist and a writer. It's been a journey to me, and all I can say is I started using this site to cope when way too much. Instead of doing what I truly want in life I keep getting side tracked on here. I press f5 like a beast and wait until someone says something funny or interesting so I can reply. I keep making banger threads though. The first and second retarded shitpost thread? My baby. The husbando smell thread? My most recent creation. I designed a lot of the new banners. And so on (won't disclose more). I'm happy my retardation will live on forever for future generations of farmers who just want to pass the time over here. I just continue wanting to stop coming on here, but like any addiction I keep coming back. Before you say "HOW CAN YOU BE ADDICTED TO THIS PLACE LMAOOO" I have very hardcore addiction tendencies thanks to my family. My mom is addicted to cigarretes and my brother is an alcoholic. Going on here is not the only thing I do to satiate the itch to escape reality either, but that's besides the point.

I'm turning 26 next month… I'm tired of feeling like a nuisance, like a loser. I have no money to my name. I have many dreams but it's hard to pursue them when my enviorment is this harsh. People keep telling me I am a wonderful and creative girl, I don't trust them because of how fucking depressed I am. I want to correct this. I want to do something, and I think I need to stop coming here as the first step. It's just fucking hard. I wish there was another place on the internet that was 1.Anonymous 2.Women-only 3.With people who have brains 4.Cozy 5.Somewhere you can vent without it being a hugbox. Can't say this website isn't toxic for your brain but also this is such a cool and almost perfect place to share with other like-minded women. But I not only need a break, I need to quit…

I don't know. I want to say I'll miss this place. But I've tried countless times to move on from here, to become better, to do something with my life. All that keeps making me come back is having a place to vent, so I'll have to search for somewhere else where I can do it in an anon way. And I also love shitting on internet things together. I think I'll miss that the most.

I wish you all luck, I hope I can make it this time. Life is changing fast. Things aren't what they weren't before. I must move on, I must do something. Goodbye nonnies. I hope I can find somewhere else as wonderful as this place.

Not all intersex people have both female and male genitals. Intersex is kind of an umbrella term for a lot of conditions. You can have female anatomy and look outwardly female and still have XY chromosomes, it's called androgen insensitivity syndrome (although some people with it do still look male/ambiguous but many look female). Some also have ambiguous genitalia but some don't.

I came here after my sibling was murdered. I had a hard time functioning like I used to. I found this site by mistake, but I’ve found it entertaining.
I’ve deleted my social media a few years ago, but I really liked the /ot/ and /g/ threads. Some of you are really wonderful and nice. I even really enjoyed the JC and Syd shitshow thread in snow, but at this point it’s less fun and more sad.
However, I will say, there’s alot of anons with clear issues that shit up the threads.
I don’t really understand being so mean and lacking empathy when someone isn’t on the same wavelength as the OP. I think spending time here went from fun to cringy. Reminds me why I deleted fb and insta in the first place. I’ve made time for hobbies more important- to me. Gym, painting, screaming at dark souls 3 because I suck, and reconnecting with friends I lost in my Great Depression. My boyfriend and I are working on a little side business for the farmers market, and I got a good, stable job.
Being here feels like a step back for me. I’d rather write for me, privately. I don’t need or want interaction, or need validation one way or another from people on the internet anymore.

Thank you anons active in the cat and dog threads, the employment, the fitness and diet acc thread. I hope all nonnies achieve what they want in life!

Back when I started to browse this site, I followed pt because I felt sorry for her and looked forward to seeing her life improve. I realize now that the reason I would follow these threads was because I needed hope that even the most unstable people can change for the better despite how ludicrous their situations were. After watching an episode of a woman who hoards cats because she needs something, anything at all, to be there when the inevitable downfall of her relationship ending. She had very low esteem and didn't believe anyone could love her, not even her husband who has stuck with her for 17 years. She didn't have the ability to truly love her husband because she believed he would leave her eventually. She was afraid of committing all of herself because she wad afraid of the pain of being abandoned. So her solution was to have a backup comfort, all 15 cats, that she obsessively took care of when that time would come. For the past 4 years, I have done that with lc and various video games. To me, creating the perfect game account is very important because I needed it to be just as I wish for when the time comes of my downfall. In my mind it's like, well at least I have this going for me so, x situation won't hurt as much. The Internet is only a scapegoat from learning how to cope healthily in my experience. This site had many funny moments and some of you are honestly hilarious with your shitposts. K bye!

I haven't been here very long, just about over half a year, but I visit a little too much. I already have a problem with self control when it comes to screen time so I feel like maybe it's getting a little out of hand for me. Especially on quiet days, I'm basically waiting for anons to post so I feel like I've got a friend or something. Pretty lame. I could be making art. So that's what I'm gonna do! I really enjoyed talking to you anons, I liked hanging out in /ot/ and /m/, and picking cute thread pics now and then. I got a lot of cool art, funny memes and music I've never heard from here and I appreciate that the most. Okaaaay, last post. Bye bye!

This will be my second attempt at leaving lolcow as I came crawling back here when my health got worse and I spent more time at home but now I find my favourite cows aren't that amusing to me anymore and sometimes I'll argue over stupid shit here. I'll get riled up about something, argue, then realise I was dumb to care about it to begin with and shouldn't have acted like such an angry sped about it. Don't get me wrong, I have many fond memories here, some anons have been incredibly kind and sweet to me and a lot have had me laughing out loud on days when I really needed a laugh. I just feel like it's all becoming a bit stale and combine that with my addictive personality I'm flicking between boards for hours out of boredom. Even video games are a better use of my time compared to that. I'll miss having a female only space to vent in but I have so much in my life to look forward to that I know the right thing to do is direct my attention towards that. Mods if you're reading this I'm sorry for the times you had to ban me for not saging or derailing when I was a newfag and if you could I'd really appreciate being put out to pasture for my own good. I wish you all the best of luck and may the milk keep flowing long after my departure. ♥

Yesterday a friend of mine came to my house and I told her about how much I use this website. It felt oddly freeing. I talked about all the good times I had in here and how I love the sense of community and how I found people who think the same way as I do here. Nice people, smart people, cool people. I also told her how much this website exausts me. Constantly. I lose my time here and I'm always coming back. It's addictive and it's consuming my entire life.

She said "your website sounds like a cult" and even though she was joking, it kinda made me think, it kinda makes sense that she thinks this way. I have nowhere else to belong to, in a world where everything is hypersexual, pornified, disgusting, yucky, and everyone stupid and plain wrong, this place makes me feel at home. Everywhere else is full of fucking brainrot. There's still things I don't agree with and shit happens, but overall I like this website a lot. I also hate myself though and I have no discipline. I need to go back to doing what I'm most passionate about in life and move on. I'm tired of coming back, lolcow has taken like 7 years of my life and while I don't regret it I'm also not that proud. See ya everyone, I might hop around on movie nights (that's the most fun I've had in a loooooong time since the pandemic started) and love you all my precious cows.

Been here for like 5 years or even more, lots of iconic moments, laughs and good memories, here i finally found women who could understand me, they made me realize i wasn't so alone, they were crazy, funny, smart and made the whole experience great, they are all gone now tho, and it shows.

I don't think i can't enjoy this place anymore, too much infighting and circlejerking, it doesn't feel like a imageboard, just tumblr/twiter 2.0 but with more undercover trannies/moids and way more mentally ill people.

I've found new hobbies, and irl friends, i'm not as mentally unstable as i used to be, I've a lot to do irl, i don't have as much free time nowadays.

I love you, lolcow, but I think it's the end between us.

>Your favorite lolcows

I first came upon this site after looking for LoL girl drama. That got boring and I read a lot of Luna Slater threads. I would cycle upon cows that seemed interesting, but these days I only really visit /ot/ and /g/. I feel shitty when I go on /pt/, /snow/ to be honest. I guess I owned up to my cognitive dissonance and did something about it.
>What thread you loved the most
Most of the /ot/ threads were pretty nice, bouncing between snarky and comforting to funny to absurd. /g/ was alright too but there were some very naive anons there.
>How much time did you spend here
Overall, I've been here for just under 6 years. There were days where I would just refresh lolcow endlessly and there were times where I didn't visit lolcow in a month. I visit here regularly when work is slow or when I'm bored at work. Browsing during work, mostly.
>What are you looking forward in the future
Practicing the guitar, working on my career, starting various projects (both on- and off-computer), going to shows, learning to rollerblade, reading, swimming, what have you. Basically, being in the present and making most of my time is what I'm looking most forward to after some psyche-induced navelgazing.
>Would you come here occasionally
I'm not sure. There were some cool anons, but I find that nuanced discussions can be buried due to people going "SCROTE" or "LIBFEM" and potentially good debates are suppressed for that reason. So, probably not. Perhaps for some more nuanced advice or help, but thankfully my problems are rarely very complex.
>Etc etc etc
I'm happy to have been one of the anons who posted a bunch of borzoi pictures to annoy that one anon. I didn't think it'd become lolcow tradition. My (and others!) legacy will live on, with or without me. I'll miss the vent threads to let out my anger and annoyances, but I figure I can write that shit down in a journal or relay it to my irl friends over a messaging app. Bye anons! Stay healthy, happy, and try not to be online too much. Thank you for a fun, sometimes educational, and welcoming experience.

Sorry for bumping the thread but I will be spending much less time here. You all are wonderful women and have helped me so much when I was going through a rough time, but it's time for me to move towards more positive things in life than sitting on gossip boards all day. I feel like it's making me a more negative person overall, also very critical of both others and myself (I usually browsed the cow threads religiously). I recently have picked up new hobbies, sorted out my life somewhat and all that stuff. I've been wanting to be less terminally online and lc is my most visited website aside from yt which I use mostly for music lol. I have gotten amazing advice on here though and love you all so much ♥

>Your favorite lolcows

Luna, Pixie, Lucinda

>What thread you loved the most

Mtf, I learned so much from it (straight up, I was caught up in the whole tranny 'inclusive' shit before but don't believe anything about it anymore. Fuck trannies.) Also Luna's old threads, and all of /ot/ and /g/

>How much time did you spend here

I've been here since one of the first artist salt threads, I remember being underage and googling 'I hate Baylee Jae' or some bullshit lol and ended up here. Started following more cows like Toopoor and the Altcows thread. I've become a bit addicted over the years, checking my favorite cow threads right when I wake up. I noticed myself a lot happier once I stopped doing that the past few weeks, which is mostly why I'll stop coming here as much. I think I overall spent hours a day on here, reading and reading old threads lol.

>What are you looking foward in the future

Being a more positive thinking and less terminally online person mostly, really focus on school, art, music, friends and get the most out of life instead of sitting on my laptop all day refreshing and refreshing.

>Would you come here occasionally

Yes! I definitely see myself going back to /ot/ and /g/ sometimes for random questions (since it's one of the only all women's spaces) but not as much as I used to. I might check up on my favorite cows occasionally, but I won't 'follow' them anymore.

The board culture has also changed too much, quality anons seem to be leaving (and i can see why) and we got a huge influx of males, trolls and newfags who derail every thread.
Its even worse that the new mods/admin are absent and incompetent.

I can't see myself leaving lc anytime soon, but it's been years since I stopped caring about the cows in /pt/ and /snow/ except for the FTM and MTF threads. I started using lc in 2015 or 2016 I think! I don't really remember but all the cows I found interesting moved on and became normies or just straight up died so now I use /ot/ and /m/ all the time. Talking with all of you back when I was in university helped me become well-adjusted so much I can pass for a normal person now irl instead of an anxious perpetually stressed loser who barely knows how to communicate with other due to my upbringing. If I ever truly move on later it'll be either because lc would have died, which I thought was happening back when /ot/ and /m/ died in February, or because I would have stopped using the internet as a whole. No other places online is currently as fun or direct as this one, 4chan is trash to talk about hobbies, social media as a whole are one of the worst things happening to the internet, and I deleted a bunch of accounts I don't use anymore long ago.

She's been getting on my nerves a lot lately, but since she was my friend when I was into lolita fashion I kept her around (nobody else in the comm liked her, they thought she was a drama whore). I am 100% certain TERFs should not befriend anti-feminists at all. Just because we dislike liberal feminism, doesn't mean we hold the same values.

No. 1121993

The only anti-feminists I've known were against it because they thought it was the only thing stopping them from bagging a rich husband and being a stay at home wife for him. Kek. The version you're describing is even sadder, is she overweight or unattractive? I've found that some women who think they don't fit beauty standards sometimes wrongfully think appealing to men and being the antifeminist pickme will get them male attention while most men end up being with women who value themselves, regardless of their attractiveness.

No. 1122023

Many terfs are anti feminist tradthots in disguise and youll easily find them on anti-sex work threads here or on twitter. They claim theyre against the sex work industry but its a lie. The only thing they care about is calling sex workers worthless whores and laughing at them being abused by men. They love to hate on sex workers then claim they care about abuse. Its all a facade to seem pure and angelic and please moids.

No. 1122039

This is what you get when troons insist that everyone who doesn't kiss their ass is a "TERF". Most people don't even know that it's an acronym, let alone what it stands for, and so we get literal anti-feminists calling themselves "trans exclusionary radical feminists"

I came back on my phone cause I was curious if there were replies to my last posts. I realized I could catch up on threads pretty quickly if I ever want to come back. I recommend blocking sites at the host file level, still looking for a similar way to block on my phone though.

I've been slowly getting away from this website and posting less and less. I've created many well regarded threads and helped around and posted so much funny shit that I felt very much part of the community. The days I have spent away from online spaces have felt amazing though, and coming back here feels weird. There's definetely some pickmeism pro troon nlog shit going atm on and it's boring. This website is becoming boring and different as time passes. I love the radfems, the nice nonnies, the husbandofags, and the fujos too. But I'm sure I've outgrown this website, sometimes it feels like I'm talking to 18 year olds constantly (as proven by the friend finder thread of course) and I'm in my late 20's now. I like talking to the mature nonnies and those who are 25+. I also love the drawing board and the movie nights. Basically lolcow is a big part of my socialization because I'm kind of an hermit. But that's seriously unhealthy and I just want to move on and focus on what I'm truly passionate about. That's all.

I love you bitches and you've seen me through some hard times, but I see now that I'm outgrowing this place as a daily scroll.
I used to love the chaotic /ot/ energy, you never know if you'll get a sweet helpful response or merciless hilarious bullying. But now I get grumpy seeing the same four vents and derails play out over and over again, and that's not how I want to spend my precious toilet time. I live a blessed scroteless existence and I don't want to be reminded how awful they are all the time. I want to focus on things that make me happy. So I'll probably dip back when I have something to contribute to the perfume, fashion, sewing and career threads. I've really enjoyed the sense of family here, but since I'm feeling more and more of a black sheep, I won't stay and grind my teeth that this place isn't what I want it to be. Later.

I felt this nonny, I started coming here when I was in my mid 20's and now I'm in my early 30's. Sharing this place with teenagers and people in their early 20's just isn't appealing anymore, I dealt with the phases they're going through years ago and I get tired of trying to explain the same things over and over again and their polarized way of thinking gets me frustrated like I was arguing with, well, someone in their teens.

I agree, and I think it's exactly because of a.) the moderation team being understaffed and not quick enough to ban and redtext budding infights between users and b.) the growing younger userbase and us oldfags growing more mature and finding more nuance in issues we have already dealt with for so many times. The black and white thinking with edgy takes is something underdeveloped people with no perspective on things have and they will learn the shades of grey between them eventually because the world doesn't work in absolutes and they will have to learn to deal with compromises. But for someone who has already grown past that it's beyond maddening to deal with brats acting and speaking on their impulses alone.

I hope this site will remain as somewhere for these young women to grow, find other women, learn about feminism and pinkpill themselves, but the amount of weird conservatism and extremism that has been creeping up makes me worried. Just because you a-log degenerate trannies doesn't mean you're a "radfem".

I know I can have cowish behaviors like being a turbo autistic weeb but I genuinely love this place as a place for women to help each other and I also love the free organic manhate.

Thinking I will leave soon. I'll miss the fun times had with fellow nonnies, but the negatives have truly piled up. There's obviously the admin issue, in addition we have even worse raids, our userbase is too polluted with newfags and drama-stirring namefags, and a highly obvious male presence to boot. I love the good times I've had on LOLCOR but also I've decided not to say mean things anymore online if I can help it, life's too short. I can still come here and be nice but it hangs over me. Not to mention the attitudes here have made me too critical of people, too negative. So it isn't any one factor but a bunch that might soon break the camel's back. I'm still coming here for now, you are all my sisters but it may be someday soon. Who knows maybe I won't be able to until this site really goes under.

Okay nonnies this is it for me I think. Lolcow has been a sort of sanctuary for me since I was a teen, I started browsing lolcow forever ago, I think it’s been about 7 or so years but it’s time I call it quits. When I first found LC it was a great way to pass the time, I loved reading about cows and it was just fun to read all the gossip, it had such a different feeling back then but I can’t really put it into words. Later on I discovered the off topic boards and was even more pleased, that’s when I finally started to actually post on the site and I had a lot of fun most of the time. I also met some really amazing nonnies on here during the first round of the friend finder thread back in 2019 and I still talk to a few of them. I’ve had a lot of fun with nonnies in the movie and drawing rooms and i’ve made a few pieces of art that I see used around here sometimes and it makes me very happy. But this place has become absolutely insufferable, all of the nonnies I met who were also old fags have abandoned the site and now I see why. I took a long break myself during the raids because I was sick of encountering cp, seeing moid spam and posts but when I came back and saw it had slowed down I was a bit happy about it. But sadly it just doesn’t feel the same, it feels like all the anons who made this a fun and interesting place have vanished and abandoned the site, understandably so, and the new anons are not really my cup of tea. At first when people complained about twitterfags I thought it was dumb, shouldn’t we be happy that they are peaking and coming here? They’ll assimilate eventually just give them time! But I was stupid to think so and wrong, this place has become absolutely infested. I just can’t stand how everything turns into an infight. I am so sad to leave because this felt like the only place left online where I could openly express my opinions about troons, males and media that otherwise would get me cancelled in normie social media spaces. I feel defeated too because it feels like this was the only site left where I could feel like I was surrounded by only women, sure men can come here too but they’re usually called out and ostracized, which I always loved, so abandoning the site in a way feels like letting the men who so badly want to kill this place win. Thankfully I have a good solid group of terf friends who share my interests and won’t need this place anymore. I’ll miss the board culture, the memes, making art with and for other nonnies and the farm in general, but I can’t deal with how awful this site is, coming on here now feels like a chore. Every thread is clogged with infighting about very stupid topics to the point that they are unusable. You can’t even really shit on males anyone without getting some butthurt anons defending men. Image board culture is dying and the new generation of it is absolutely rancid. I will always be grateful to this website for peaking me, letting me openly shit on men and giving me people to discuss my interests with. Goodbye nonnies and may you all have a good life ♥

I say this with some unironic tears in my eyes- I've spent 7 years on this website and it's done nothing but make me a more bitter, tired, ugly person. I want to learn how to connect with people without being so cold and hateful and heal the abused teenager that managed to find solace here in the first place. I've made some nice friends through the friend-finder thread and I'll always be grateful for that, and I'll always be grateful to the nonas who answered my insane schizoposts in the vent and advice threads. I'm going to breathe in the fresh air and run my fingers through the tall grass for the first time in years and I encourage anyone else reading this who also has the urge to be free from this hell to just pack up your little handkerchief, put it on a stick, and hop the nearest train out of here. love yourself and love others and live your life putting empathy first

No. 1246771

NTA but yeah I didn’t want to discourage OP but lolcow is barely the hellsite a lot of people make it out to be. It’s barely addictive, has zero ads/marketing, and you know…..it’s an anon image-board; it discourages all of our shitty, dopamine-go-up attention-whoring fragile-ego-driven impulses. Like…..if you have a busy life - say you now have a job or go to school or decide to become professionally unhinged - you just won’t go on here. Because you’re busy. Having too much free time with zero structure, on the other hand, is just a recipe for online-aided listlessness. Like I can understand this about Twitter but never about LC. This whole thread is pointless; there is no need for a “graduation”, it won’t change anything. The only need for anyone suffering from being on LC too much is find something else to do with their time, and since most don’t have the willpower making money (not starving) is usually the most effective incentive.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)

No. 1246780

I’ve spent a lot of time here laughing with my nonnas around the world, cringing at cows and husbandoposting Kek. LC has also pinkpilled me and helped me with seeing my value as a woman, and that there is nothing wrong with being one. That women are lovely and intelligent people who create wonderful things. They are strong and amazing, sweet and kind. That I should love all parts of myself and that I can truly stand above what society puts on me (kek) and I can have fulfilling relationships with other women.

I've been here since, I would say mid 2017, and coming here way less over the months. I really feel like the celebrity thread completely changed the dynamics of the site lol, it attracted embarrassing teens from Twitter with their cringey lingo. People here complain about sites like Twitter and Tumblr but lolcow really isn't all that different to me personally. Idk it's like something fundamental has been altered forever in the way people interact here and the whole userbase. To be honest I was never fully part of the demographic on lolcow, I don't give a shit about people embarrassing themselves online, I don't care about thread drama or social media drama. But I enjoyed lolcow back in the day just to casually chat and rant about things we found annoying, sharing cool pictures, interesting discussions, attractive men threads etc, it was the simple things I liked. But I've just grown increasingly irritated and sour with almost everything having to do with lolcow because people just won't stop fighting and nitpicking over the dumbest shit - no thread is immune to this, so many anons are so weirdly aggressive and snarky for no good reason. The tone shift has just grown and grown over the years and I'm so over it now. I feel like I'm too old for this place lol, or more likely the demographic has been somehow dumbed down and de-aged. I like browsing the old threads from 2015 and I can't believe how calm people were (not that this site was ever perfect). I spent too much wasted time on here, and although I've had fun times and good talks this site just makes me feel bitter when I visit it. I regret opening it up the rare few times I do these days, and where's the good in that? Any time I'd have a thought I'd think about posting it on lolcow, and that doesn't happen anymore, and it feels so damn freeing. Though I still miss certain aspects of lolcow from time to time. I doubt I'll completely stop visiting for eternity, I only spend about two minutes on here anyway, but the days of browsing mindlessly for hours are long gone. It's really for the best.

Life's a shit and I've tried to quit this website multiple times now but this time I think this is harming my mental health in ways I didn't think would be possible. I love this place and the good nonnies but goddamn I feel ike I lose braincells when I keep scrolling every single day waiting for something to happen. I hate being terminally online so much, I don't have social media, I only use this place to communicate to people on the internet, because I love that there's no men in here and we're all anonymous women. But I feel so fucking immature and emotionally stunted at some points, I think this website is literally making me more autistic, no offense to anyone please. It's like I'm too much of a weird neet to even be here anymore. I feel ugly, sad, frustrated, alone, and I'm developing anxiety it seems. But I'm happy I came across this website when I did, and I'm happy I learnt new shit in here (mainly pinkpilled things). Still if I had made a better choice to not be a weirdo who browses gossip imageboards and comes across as retarded then I would had taken that chance. Sorry for everything, I guess the final lesson I got from this website was: don't fucking interact with anyone because no one will get you. Bye nonnas let's see how much I last without coming in here again to be retarded (the insightful and kind nonnas keep pulling me back in but I need to move on asap or I'll become even more stupid)

No one cares but here's some of my story. I got here around 2016, possibly 2015. It was a weird time because men still posted sometimes, and they were called robots instead of scrotes. We were anon-chans and not nonnas. Btw this new nickname is adorable. I even "graduated" at some point in 2017. I stopped coming here for years and was satisfied lurking KF every now and then, but the Cloudfare drama happened and I came back to see what was going on. Big mistake, I have been browsing the boards non-stop for the last few days because there's something addictive about reading people's opinions when they're not attached to useranames. But frankly, I think it's time to fuck off again.

I've noticed that some things about the userbase have changed. Some for the best, some for the worst. It looks like there are has less handmaidens pandering to men now, which is a relief because the site was infested with that shit a few years ago. They either left or have woken up. That seems to be a rarer occasion now and nonnies are quick to call others out on that. I've noticed that the prostitution/"sex work" thread has a lot of people trying to leave that shitfest of a world, so that's good and I hope it serves as a warning to women considering "working" as rentable sex slaves for grotesque immoral men. But overall, I don't see a point in coming here as often anymore.
I haven't followed anyone that closely since 2017 or so, my favourite internet weirdos are never mentioned, or have dead threads here.

The other boards aren't that appealing to me. In fact, they haven't since my first graduation. The intense nitpicking of women's bodies really contrasts with the feminist views of the board, along with the occasional hypocritical thread can be enraging. Yeah, I've always hidden the threads, but it still sucks to know your fellow anon-chans think or feel that way.
I cannot say if it's the same group of anons doing that and I understand the temptation of shitting on people's looks because they're nasty pieces of garbage because I had my days too, but this behaviour can get to ridiculous levels here. It's not good for anyone's mental health long term, even if you avoid looking at it. Women already get shat on and everywhere else on the web and the real world, so I don't want to see other women doing that to us when pornsick and misogynistic men do it in nearly every other online space. "Ugly", "fat", "haggard", "old" women can be happy and lovable and their value isn't solely based on their bodies and looks. Your life isn't over at 25 and your eggs don't turn into dust when you turn 30. If you've ever felt that way, it is time to wake up, nonna.
If any anons have been thinking about quitting or taking a long break from here, I cannot recommend it enough. It will do you wonders. I'll also try to quit that subhuman infested website called Reddit again because I hate those misogynistics, but I keep lurking since there aren't many good online spaces anymore. I guess I gotta focus on my real life again now, oh shit KEK.
Also here's a secret: you're all beautiful on the outside because you're women and all women are beautiful, and all men are fugly (even when they're "attractive") kek. Just do your best to keep yourself beautiful on the inside too.

>Your favorite lolcows

>What thread you loved the most
I cannot remember any old threads right now, but I've always liked the advice and vent threads. Not every reply is helpful, but I've always liked how people try to be supportive to one another here, or wake them up to reality
>How much time did you spent here
Way too much time lol I've seen some old contributions I made here
>What are you looking forward in the future
Forgetting this chan exists for a while. I need a little bit of normieness in my life
>Would you come here occasionally

I have tried to “graduate” like the beginning of this year, I even made a post about it on this thread but I failed. But this time I’m determined. I wanna get into med school nonnas. Which means I need to start taking college more seriously and actually have a good gpa and also study for the entrance exams. It’s gonna be a tough journey but I know I have what it takes.

Covid lockdowns made me really bitter as a person, and I developed crazy video game/image board addictions. But I think it’s time I leave this period of my life behind. I want to thank y’all, you i opened my third eye, I enjoyed the terf shit, and also shitting on scrotes. I got banned a few times but honestly it was deserved.

Anyway nonnas, wish me luck. I will go over some of my fave threads and then nuke this website off my memory forever (or some for a few years at least)

It was nice to have an all-female community that did not excessively self-censor, but now I'm becoming tired of the pettiness and negativity, and I'm just not that interested in internet drama anymore, so I come here more out of habit than out of enjoyment.

It's been fun nonnies but I think I'm ready to move on. I found lolcow when googling some alt cows, I wasn't too familiar with image boards and I was really fascinated and got kind of obsessed reading up on cows I knew when I first found lolcow. I lurked for maybe 1-2 years before ever commenting because the majority of you terrified me. Still sort of do. I'm just autistic and I take things a bit too seriously. I've been here for maybe four years. I spent a long time reading all the threads for Momokun, Vicky, and Luna. Luna remains my favorite cow, I have too much sympathy for her because I lost my best friend to heroin and it's basically a form of self harm following Luna's antics. I don't want to follow the activities of strangers anymore. I started posting and hanging out in it and g, but being so retarded, I get anxious to say shit then get dogpiled. I guess I just feel like I don't necessarily fit in with board culture despite having lurked for so long. I love all the terfy-ness, I've learned so much and it's truly solidified some of my stances. I will always be thankful for the nonas for helping me hone my man hating kek. One thing lolcow really helped me with, ironically, was body image. I'm tech illiterate and I really had no idea you could edit your selfies this much on your phone. I thought Photoshop was something only professionals could do. I had no idea you could change your face shape, make your waist so tiny, so easily without massive signs giving you away. It made me feel a lot better about myself.
I will probably come back from time to time to read the MTF thread, because it's the only place online to have food discussions and see news about that kind of shit. I'm always five threads behind, so I never run the risk of seeing cp or gore, something I've thankfully never seen but have no interest in being here for that.
Anyways thank you nonas for this community

I was going to write a heartfelt message, but in the middle of writing it, my computer decided to crash and I lost all the words I was going to say.

But anyways… Goodbye nonnies. I finally quitted this website for good. I have nothing to look forward to in here anymore. Kudos to the nice helpful nonnies, but I'm glad I don't feel the need to come here and interact with this website just because I feel lonely, bored and misunderstood. I feel more satisfied now that I'm focusing on things that matter more to me personally and have people that care and listen to me elsewhere. Specially because I never felt deeply understood in here, though I'm glad for the times you all gave me your kind words and support. I'm not really fond of other times though, it's incredibly easy to find things that upset you in this website, and I think I was turning more bitter for a while. The constant raids specially took such a big toll to my mental health and I had to really quit it, you never know when that shit is going to show up. I also saw more people defending troonism, and threads going to shit/falling apart, so I'm afraid this website is only going to get worse in the future when more people with their own agenda come in. The constant infighting, paranoia, and scrote accusations also get tiring once you see them so often, it's grating to see innocuous shit get told off for no reason, trolling or not. I understand where these things come from, and I love the pro-radfem and 0 scrote policy this forum has though. Sometimes the prudeism from some anons that shows up when people talk about sexuality in a normal way is also pretty annoying, like, I get it. But it's annoying nonetheless. And also, not being able to vent without someone saying shit kek. It's all very little stuff that makes me not want to come back, but being honest, the raids is the main reason why I don't need this website in my life. I don't want to see that shit again, I need my peace of mind.

I closed this website on my browser for the last time over 2 months ago, and just today I'm saying goodbye, because I wanted to see how long I could go without it. Turns out, I'm better this way. If anyone needs help quitting your internet addiction, or any addiction really, search for the easypeasy method online, it's easy to find. I still feel the little urge to share a dumb post or meme, or some useful info somewhere, or talk about shit in a thread. I do get that feeling. But I cannot afford to have a peek, so I don't do it. And doing this has helped me great lengths. Every time I want to do it I remember about the raids, and then I think how this website will eventually change cultures again, and then I also remember that I'm tired of infighting and being misunderstood. So I don't do it. I feel sorry about this, but I must look out for myself, too.

So, yeah. Not the heartfelt response I wanted to leave. But the one that I needed to write out. Have a good one everyone. Bye ya'll

My art and way of thinking, and the way I relate to others, and my overall mood has become better after quitting this website. I'm not afraid of drawing shit that most people might think is questionable anymore. I don't feel bad about the person I am and the things I like and I don't want to be policed ever again by strangers on the internet. I'm done with the mentality of "but what would people of lolcow think" that made me so afraid and paralized before. Everyday I'm full of creativity and I feel way happier. I disliked how much lolcow and the moralfags here hindered on my creativity. "You can't draw that because _____!!!!!!" Sincerely gtfo. It's okay to have a good set of opinions and morals but the way you must act or think a certain way in here makes me sick. And, the thing is, it's not like I don't share the same views as everyone else here about troons, protecting women, consoomerism, not making a fool of yourself etc. But it's the prudeism that really killed my enjoyment, you can't like anything because someone comes in and tells you you're a scrote or etc one of those buzzwords. I wish lolcow was a place where weird, creepy, artsy women were truly cherished and encouraged. Instead it seems everyone pretends to be a normie while secretly being fucked up. You're not a normie, you use lolcow.

also i agree the cows now are super boring, there are only like 2 threads i come here for. i don't know if that's part of the overall vibe shift in the site's climate and userbase or if i'm just older and can't get into cows the way i used to.

Please ignore my post.

Lolcow has become a place where you can't step out of the line, be weird, snarky, or unhinged for fun because you always have to behave a certain way, like similar things, and have a certain type of thinking. Act different for a second and you’ll be put in place. Lolcow nowadays feels ‘too normie’ and ‘immature’ to me, akin to plenty other social media websites. I don't mind the hugbox and I love the gender critical and radical feminist content, but make the wrong type of post and you'll be persecuted on for everything you are. I always avoid infighiting for this reason. No wonder no one wants to post here anymore. Some anons just love replying with their personal moral coded corrections. One of my friends who also uses this website saw people calling lesbians “scrotey” for liking vulvas. (in between for, "that never happens!", I’ve seen similar things done to straight women as well). This place got turned into a mix of tumblr with twitterisms and also oddly conservative. Sometimes there’s no place for civil disagreement. I would had expected more freedom from an imageboard for women where camaraderie is encouraged. I honestly think lolcow is less an imageboard in the traditional sense and it's more of a gossip magazine for online washed out celebrities. There's been moments of unhinged female brilliance here and there, like when Kaitlyn Tiffany made her retarded ass thread. The problem here is, the website wasn't designed for all women out there including outsider ones. I'm not talking about posters like pakianon or romanianon who are absolutely infuriating, I'm more or less talking about women who don't fit a certain mold. I don’t know what I was expecting, this website was designed from the start to make fun of out there women. One of the things that irks me the most is how everyone says lolcow isn't a hivemind but jesus christ it might as well be. To be honest it also depends because from time to time you get the very strange libfem who defends men in dresses (absolutely disgusting). I know I'm being overly negative with this post, sometimes you need to let your heart out in an anonymous way. That's another thing… it's like you can’t just ignore any actively retarded post like mine that you don't agree with and move on because there’s a poster that always finds a way to reply to it and accuse you of everything. Chill out. Some people only use this website to speak a couple words and let the steam out without revealing their identity, but there will always be someone in the background who ends up having a problem with you. My vent here is only because I feel like an outsider in this website that I used to call home, perhaps the type of person I am was never fully welcomed to begin with. I will finish this post saying none of you should be afraid to be who you truly are, and none of you should be afraid of breaking the established mold, and none of you should be afraid of speaking your truth out. None of you should be afraid of saying, liking, doing, or being the wrong thing. Don’t just let some anons dictate who you are and what you can be like, walking on eggshells so you don’t hurt their sensibilities. I hope in the future, if there comes to be any new female only imageboard that replaces lolcow, they decide to celebrate smart, insightful, artsy, creative, angsty and weird women from all backgrounds without restricting their speech.

I've seen so many anons being so defensive over what pictures you can post that I started saving cat pictures just so I didn't make anyone mad.

forgot to add, maybe I have more tolerance for certain types of media than others. Sometimes I wonder if I'm the one in the wrong or other anons are too judgmental and hyper moralistic. I know I've been like that too. It also makes me feel kinda sad when I see the husbandofags have drama in their own niche threads because for me everyone looks like they're doing same in the end, loving some 2D drawings.

The try hard aggro mean girl attitude sucks so much, and feels very immature. It does remind me of how some zoomers act to be frank. But I know my generation was also like that when they were young (I'm an oldfag and emigrated from /cgl/, so I know how that goes). In general I think imageboards attract a lot of teenagers, but they also get posting on here because of some of the more teen adjacent cows we have like the e-girl and nymphette thread.

True. It's weird how you could read the most liberalist take ever and it's followed by a conservatard moral panic post straight out of /pol/. The infighting is everywhere and I don't know if it's the staff allowing it again or remnants of XY kiwifags who think they're being super smart and macho for starting fights all the time. Or maybe it's just me getting older and having less tolerance for some anon trying to pick a fight with me over things that don't matter. I could post about eating cereal and an anon would call me a retarded fat bitch for not eating fruit instead and fight me for an hour about it.

The "ew anime reaction image get out tranny" is the most autistic shit I swear, overall the anti-anime crowd is either a bunch of 19-year olds just getting out of their weeb phase or some small-minded LSA/Radblr/FDS regulars.

It was funny at first maybe still is but at some point people need to stop and realize they're not the only kind of women using this website. I get it, being a female only imageboard and the #girlboss shit being popular on the internet at the moment it would only be natural that we have that type of stuff here.
The movie room having so many boring normie girly movies and the fact that these movies are the ones that get the views can only mean we have a lot of boring normies lurking lolcow. It feels more difficult to suggest anything else.

Well this is kind of asshole-ish anon. No one is stopping you from suggesting movies you would like, and if you talk to the anons in the movie room you'd see that a lot of them are different with different/unique interests. But yes, women on a female imageboard are more likely to like movies geared towards a female audience.
Also, I've only seen anons judge someone for their movie recommendations twice, and both times they got shut down.

I was always afraid of becoming a cow. I think this is one of the things that kept me captive and coming back to this website. I wanted to make sure that what I was doing wasn't something that would be posted here. I didn't want to be cringe and I didn't want to be made fun of. I don't want to hurt anyone. I'm human and I make mistakes, I'm not perfect and I'm not pure, and I have my secrets. But I also want a career where I can post things online and I want to be successful doing it (art and webcomic related). I think it's time for me to leave, whenever I stop using lolcow, the paranoid thinking about me becoming a cow gets lesser and lesser until it stops. I hope y'all have it good.

No. 1447069

I've been thinking about this a lot lately. The anxiety over not doing anything "cow-like", triple-thinking my every interaction in order not to give people gossip fodder and so forth has poisoned my mind to the point I'm fast becoming a recluse. Anons nitpicking everything people post in threads that have literally no genuine milk is, for the lack of better terminology, toxic. I know it's probably them projecting their own insecurities into other people but it gets under my skin. Which is probably cow-like behavior when I think about it. Look, it's happening again.

This mentality is something I've had before too. I am a recluse IRL because I do hate me some society but online I've been trying to open myself a little more. Not everyone is worthy of discussing and not everything is as bad as you might think. Just be careful, and if they end up discussing you, just namaste ce la vie しょうがない. It's just gossip. Sorry to everyone in this website but to put it like this: don't let some salty bitches larping as mean girls ruin your life. Some of it is projection anyway. Most people in this website are afraid of becoming cows too. Morals are kinda skewed in this website and I know I will get shit for saying that but it's true, feels like everyone wants to pretend they're completely well adjusted and free of sin while keeping skeletons in their closet. We've all done at least 3 publicly cowish things in our lifetime dude. It's called being human, no one is perfect.

In a way I credit the farms for giving me more self awareness, but I think it has become too much. I'm always hyperanalyzing everything I do. I don't dare to make a social media profile, because I would definitely be a potential cow and it almost feels arrogant to do so (I know that's retarded to think). I've almost completely dropped alt fashion and became more normie looking. Hyperanalyzing everything I say. Everything to avoid being too cringe I guess and have someone make me their personal cow. It feels like being a cow is almost a moral failing to me (which is my own problem).
On the other hand I don't want to leave, because there's no other place like this and nonnas can be very sweet, supportive, uplifting and hilarious.

I used to come here to let steam out but now its having the opposite effect on me and i feel worse after visiting so i dont see this place as a way to spend free time anymore, even if its 10 minutes i rather not.

it's not just about posting too much about your personal lives on the internet. In this day and age, your friends, family, school, and even strangers can film you or post pictures of you online, sometimes without your consent. This has happened to me a lot, my college would take a SHIT TON of pictures at events and I would have to beg them to not include mines because I am hyper aware of some fuckers online being creepy and eventually finding them. I don't want my candids online because I know by visiting both farms what people are capable of doing. Even if you have good days and take nice selfies, someone will make fun of your insecurities.

It's also not just 'dont post any personal detail' because if anyone wants just a little bit of relevance online (this specially happens if you're an artist, you NEED a social media presence sadly) you will be subject to stupid shit and someone will end up cancelling you. I want to make youtube videos about art but the mere fact that someone will probably have a stupid problem with me makes me so upset. Growing up in this website on my early 20s really did a number in my head.

Idk if this makes sense, I'm posting this while being extra tired and sleepyy. Just a heads up.

>having no self awareness
Often when someone tries to change or do things better on the internet they'll be reminded of past mistakes and your reputation will be tainted forever. Even in a moment of weakness you can become a cow.

>about the shit in anons' closets if they're that paranoid

Mine has to do with addiction and the fact that I was really mean on the internet on my teens. I also have sexual trauma that makes my addiction even worse. I feel impure. I'm not exactly mentally sound. I have my bad days and things I deeply regret. Even if I don't talk about it online, it follows me and I feel paranoid of someone finding out.

Visiting lolcow itself is also a skeleton in your closet for people on social media too.

>being an attentionwhore

If you are someone who wants to remain with 0 online presence, sure you will never be labeled an attention whore and your chances to become a cow are lesser. But there's also discord servers, there's online friendships, everything is a potential cancellation. Some people need social media for their own jobs or whatever too like >>1449187 said. Linkedin and facebook are as unsafe and even more unsafe as instagram and tiktok are. You can't even post personal things, it takes one thing for someone to put out of context. It's easier to make fun of others on the internet than it is to fix your own mistakes, I think this is why lolcow has been my copium for so many years. "At least I'm not as bad as _____ cow" you know, but deep inside I know my faults. I just want to one day live guilt and paranoia free and forgive myself. The thing is who knows if others WOULD forgive me. The way the internet is structured now, I doubt it.

In a way this is why I have (undeserved) empathy towards some cows. The least offensive ones anyway. They just keep being attacked online and made fun of their insecurities, maybe this is why they eventually become super insane. It's true they all have attention whoring behaviors but some of them also carry issues that made them attention whores online in the first place. I know that if I became a cow and was made fun of because of my insecurities I would also become really stupid. I know the whole "just walk away from the screen bro" is real but some things do in fact stay with you forever.
If anyone else here believes in karma, this is also why I feel so guilty about visiting the farms. Maybe one day things will turn around and I'll be the one being made fun of. Inb4 some rude ass bitch replies to my post with "get over it" kek

Paranoia and guilt complexes sadly don't always correlate to what people have actually done. Some people are just predisposed to it or were shamed all their lives so it feels like that sometimes. I know a couple of very close friends like that, they're also afraid of confrontation or afraid of disappointing others. Sometimes it's not even a big deal. So you can't really be like "you must have done something super bad if you're that paranoid" in all cases. Also see how many perverted scrotes have actually done very bad shit out there and gone literally scold free. It's somehow easier for men to not feel as guilty as some women feel.

Maybe it's not the reason but the cause, maybe their addiction made them do the wrong thing at some point. Who knows tbh
Also, I know being a radfem doesn't make you a cow obviously, it's just that besides lolcow there's very unhinged people on the internet willing to make your life hell if you catch their attention. Even over here on /ot/ we have like a stalking thread, it just takes some weirdo to follow you

No. 1451475

The aspect that makes them a cow is that they plaster it online consensual. Developing severe issues from child abuse and sexual assault is very much understandable and doesn't inherently make you a cow and if that were the case this would be a much more vile and exploitive site. Nobody here is lolcowing people in their lives with addictions or csa trauma for their poor coping mechanisms. The core aspect of being a cow is knowingly, consensually broadcasting your antics online and even then when people are severely mentally ill in a way that is sad anons rarely relish in it, except for odd cases like Lucinda etc. For example, Abbie Brown is very much harmless and various anons have said she is cute and harmless and do not fixate on her actions. People like Pixielocks become cows for their grifts and need to try to document and monetise them. If Jill was doing this privately in her own home and anons were documenting it to the same degree, that would be stalking and is a felony lol

Once again, lolcow has taught me an invaluable lesson: no matter how much you try to explain yourself to others they will never listen and it's way better to be a loner, that way no one can bother you. People will take your words out of context because they always prioritize their own minds and their own experiences over yours. In that case just prioritize your life and don't let them see, don't let them know. Just as humanity will never change, this site will never change.

It's so cringe when people make this website their only hobby, only outlet, only way to talk to likeminded women, and only personality trait. No wonder everyone is so bitter all the time. This is just a really stupid imageboard and the way people infight is just as bad as 4chan. To pretend it is not is mere wishful thinking and delusional. If you don't think a certain way you will be put down simply put, because everyone who uses the website is the same or wants everyone to be the same. People talk about female solidarity and how this website is like a hug box but it's so not that. People keep saying women are not a monolith but then everyone here forgets there's literally women from all over the world using this forum with different life experiences and yet everyone keeps the black and white us vs them mentality alive, putting everyone in a right or wrong box without any other further thinking. Whatever you post there will be some motherfucker trying to discredit you simply because fuck you, that's not what they have been through therefore you're invalidated.

This is so boring, I don't know why I even come back to what feels like a glorified version of an online chat room, I hate chat rooms and I hate socializing on the internet, I don't know what I expected coming here. If you want to keep your retarded infights because they're "fun" then keep doing that and lose some more braincells and valuable time of your day to some petty internet arguments. It would be so different if the disagreements were civil and everyone stayed in their lanes, but the stubbornness and apprehension of some really ignorant users really drives people nuts. If you have fun infighting so be it, but you're in the minority. I don't fucking want a hug box, what I want is different women with different opinions to coexist without a bitch flipping out. I don't give a fuck about what type of rude language you use to express your point (I don't mind women being rude or having strong opinions for fucks sake), just stop being insufferable to others.

Yes, you can disagree, yes you can have your own opinion and say it, everyone fucking does. But unity, respect, and fun in this website is just impossible though. How the fuck people find this website fun is beyond me. It's like you all want to fight and be in the right all the fucking time without even letting the other person explain their viewpoint. That's not a conversation, that's being a stupid troll on purpose. Literally learn to chill and have a life outside lolcow, your mean girl mentality will not take you anywhere.

My lolcow friends.

I am leaving, I have been trying to do so for ages. but I come crawling back every time! Although I am not constantly typing lolc- autonomously whenever I go to search for something. I was a neet since leaving uni in 2020, but this year in Sept, I returned to uni to do my Master's Degree and got my first part-time seasonal sales advisor job in October.
This place has made me laugh often and I have been able to chat with like-minded nonnas. I only really browse /ot/ and /g/ because I have never really got into any cows and only found this place when I was searching for what happened to Jess Woods.
But overall, I think this place has made me more negative. In 2023, I want to be more positive and move forward in life with these new opportunities and I think lolcow will remind me of my neet and lonely days.

My overall experience here has been shockingly good but I can longer in good faith pretend that 2021-2022 was a positive experience for me. Things have sadly changed and there's been shifts; some minor, some major. There has always been, and always will be, retards arguing but the influx of scrotes and those with malicious intent has increased so much so that it's affecting the way regular nonnies interact. It is heartbreaking to see. Unfortunately wanting to be an all-women's space means you are targeted twice as hard by outside forces. The brigades have become too much and I have seen things I wish I could forever erase from my mind. In a perfect world LC would have mentally stable female mods and admins that could monitor 24/7 but that will never happen because it's not practical.

I've been on lolcow for going on 5 years and I have to admit that it hasn't helped me better myself. I grew negative and checking the site in the morning could ruin my day because anons would be so ugly to each other for no reason at all. I think it's really true that anons grew paranoid and cruel because of all the scrote raids. Every other comment is an accusation of being a tranny and the infighting is so embarrassing.
It was nice to get celebrity tea but I'm almost ashamed to read up on cows because they're strangers to me and I could be doing something productive. I would literally spend hours on end catching up with 100+ threads of single cows, years of past irrelevant milk. I don't like the pathetic person it makes me.
I'll stay for the retarded husbando threads because they actually make me happy and are generally accepting, but I need to stop observing other crappy people's lives. It's lame.
I'll be in g gushing over and finding new husbandos! I'm deleting the negative threads I have bookmarked and I honestly hope for the best for all of us! Love you, nonnies.

think I’m finally gonna cut off LC for the year, this year I’m going to try to get my shit together kek. I spend a lot of time here. I’ll try to hang by the doodle boards/ movie room when I have free time but can’t spend time scrolling. Will miss u nonnies! I’ve had many laughs here and learned so much. I’ll return in 2024!! ♥ hopefully the site is updated and better by then!

After the site migration I will start calling this website Nu-Lolcow or Neo-Lolcow

No. 1459176

Lolcow has taught me stuff but also made me deeply self concious and ashamed (maybe for worse, maybe for the better) so it's been a mixed bag of positive and negative influences, and now Idk what else to do but I'm here back again.

I've succesfully quitted it for some months. Now I'm back just because I need to see how lolcow looks after the site migration and I just need to know if everything will be okay. It's like looking up an old friend and seeing they're still okay after all.

people are already calling it nucow, it's more catchy than your suggestions, no offence

Goodbye nonas. It's fun but time for me to move on. See you all in greener pastures.

I’m going to quit reminds me of crowded gyms in early January. You’ll eventually return back to your old ways by February. Best of luck to those who truly mean it!

If I never went to the bunker threads I would have been lc-free since the 19th because the url lolcow.farm doesn’t work on my computer and I’m not a phone poster lol

I feel like I can officially close my lolcow chapter behind. I don't know if I'll probably come back ask a niche question in the stupid question thread, it was REALLY nice to have a space to vent my frustration together with other people about the troonery, but as the years pass it gets old. I want to get my life together this year and I've done baby steps to far, so I want to distance myself from here since it's like a double edged sword, there's a side of toxicity and negativity and I essentially came back to see bad news to be sad or mad about. I'm letting things go now. See you never hopefuly!

After Lolcow's recent long downtime I realized how much healthier of a headspace I was in and once I came back I was immediately smacked in the face by the overwhelming negativity, anons being hostile and judgemental towards each other and the suspicious amount of homophobia and racebaiting. So my new year's resolution is to stop wasting my time here for at least a year. Like >>1460641 said I'll probably drop in some thread occasionally or when there's a major drama fallout but my days of lurking lolcow for hours on end are over for good. Goodbye nonnies, I've been here since 2015, learned a lot, met a few nice people, had great moments but now it's time to move on. I just wish there was a female-centric place to discuss anime in anonymously, that's the only thing I really miss.

>It would be so different if the disagreements were civil and everyone stayed in their lanes, but the stubbornness and apprehension of some really ignorant users really drives people nuts.
>Yes, you can disagree, yes you can have your own opinion and say it, everyone fucking does. But unity, respect, and fun in this website is just impossible though. How the fuck people find this website fun is beyond me. It's like you all want to fight and be in the right all the fucking time without even letting the other person explain their viewpoint. That's not a conversation, that's being a stupid troll on purpose. Literally learn to chill and have a life outside lolcow, your mean girl mentality will not take you anywhere.
Amen, anon. It didn't use to be like this all those years ago, it definitely got exponentially worse post-Creepshow art drama. It's the combination of retarded male kiwifags and young women who think being a "troll" or a mean girl on the internet makes up for them barely functioning in real life. It was much better when the oldmin banned infighting and even though I got hit a few times with the hammer myself when arguing got too heated it was definitely for the better.

the fact that mods didn't permaban and redtext the kpopies and left the thread open for DAYS that then invited the choachan retards with their stupidity and racism was the final nail in the coffin to me. I will probably check this place just to see how it looks after they find a new admin but I'm afraid that NUcow is here to stay

Dear Nonnies,
I'd like to offically apologize for my ironic and unironic Josh-fagging. I've seen the error of my ways and now on the outside looking in, I've seen how utterly retarded being a Josh fag/Chan/"Simp" is. I have seen the light a long time ago and I no longer even find the "Joke" of it all funny. There's nothing there, nothing to laugh at or fight for. Also seeing legit unironic Josh simps really is kinda…ew.
Im also considering leaving lolcow but I don't know when. I plan to finish my Google Doc on "Drake" and I may drop the proof on my way out.
I've done months of investagations into "Drake" and this fake persona/gender. I've only wanted to speard love not hate to my nonnies.
I'm not leaving yet, but I'm afriad my time is near. I'm beginning new things and i must leave the FAT weight behind. I'm not sure when the end will come but it will happen.
Love you Nonnies, Nona, Nonas.

Please keep exposing the truth about Drake and his shapeshifting ways. You have entertained me in 2022. I hope to hear more of your theories. However, if you wish to take a new path on your life quest, I wish you luck, Josh-stan-chan. Much Love,

Noooooooooooooo the funny and iconic nona's are leaving… lc truly is dying. I'll miss you and your posts nona, the bunker threads were especially fun with you in them. I wish you luck in whatever endeavors are ahead of you, and lolcow will be different without you here. Love you Drake truther anon ♥

Goodbye my lovely nonnies. It was fun while it lasted but it is now time for me to live my own life happily. Vicariously living through others' life isn't a life worth living. My dear sisters, we will find each other again. I will always be cheering for your happiness. Love will always win.

People who don’t even know who Elise is are taking over the site while admin and any sort of moderation are nowhere to be found. There’s a lot more than can be said but for those that know, the first line says enough. It’s been a wild ride but the time has come for me to go.

>there's a new breed of gender critical twitterfags that have found their home on here recently. they're just regular sjws who cope themselves into believing that they aren't because they're gc.
The way they think women are a monolith and if they don't conform they must be men has absolutely destroyed this site, along with the moids from kiwifarms.

i’m just ready to move on now… i havent really even liked this site since the holly brown threads but it’s been a constant in my life for so long that it’s hard to give it up. the site has been negative since its inception but with the new influx of twitter and tiktok nonnies there is constant infighting that i’m just so sick of. see you around ladies
