Almond milk is fucking disgusting and so's soy milk. But I guess people have to have their substitute. Anyways picrel because they're all obnoxious about it and act like religious freaks over nut water
I thought so too until I found a few brands that make it acceptable.
I still wouldn't put it in cereals though.
Might seem like a weird suggestion, but you should give unpasteurized a shot! Eatenially the homogenization process denatures a lot of the lipoproteins found in naturally occurring, raw milk. This is what causes the lactose sugars to be come so irritating on the GI tract in many cases. I usually get mine from sprouts and it’s pretty good stuff.
I only suggest this because I used to think I was lactose intolerant as well for years.
Soy milk is absolutely delicious, especially in cereal and coffee. It's just got a creamy nutty taste that makes cows milk seem bland and watery in comparison.
Almond isn't terrible but it's the wateriest and worst tasting milk, I only drink it when I'm dieting because it's so low calorie. >>673527
Are you sure they actually think it's cute and aren't just silently seething but putting on a brave face about their useless husbands? In appropriate spaces (eg breakingmom) they constantly bitch about that very thing.

I don't think it's always bad if a woman's a wife and mother. A lot of women have distaste for it, rightfully so with the state of society and men's expectations. But I hate to see us mock other women who show no signs of having problems. I roll my eyes at the r/childfree tier memes spreading how marriage and kids are the devil. Or instantly pitying a woman who is expressing joy about her kids. A portion of women are able to find a guy they can be on equal ground with and have a genuine bond. It's not that the women are "happy to serve" but that there's friendship involved which eliminates the one-sidedness of "serving." That means it's not a traditional-style marriage, but a cooperation. I guess that's mainly millennial marriages where they have an egalitarian viewpoint. I also feel like having kids can be a good thing, even a goal, because it's a natural part of being a living species that evolves. It has potential to be fulfilling. But it's not for everybody and if that's your goal you have to be very careful as a woman to find a man who respects you and will put in effort to raising a child. I do think that's possible, just rare. I hate seeing happy mothers mocked from an assumption.
picrelated is one of my favorite channels and I can't claim to know them but it's wholesome happy content
Technically maybe but in reality it's used as a milk substitute most of the time, so it makes more sense to use a word that helps people understand how it's consumed.
There was actually a lawsuit about calling it milk, someone argued the label milk was misleading and it should be called imitation milk instead, but they ruled that it's not actually substituting ingredients to be an inferior copy of milk and nobody is going to be deceived by the name.
>>673530 > In appropriate spaces (eg breakingmom) they constantly bitch about that very thing
Have only visited it once but I remember a woman begging her husband on his day off to take the baby for 5 mins so she could shit in peace. She had her period so we all know how those shits go. She described him as coming home from work every weekday evening and easily spending a half hour in the bathroom himself. He wouldn't afford her those 5 mins. I think she desbribed a scene of her crying on the toilet, baby present and all.
Samefag, didn't mean to literally repeat part of what >>673583
said. But seriously, anon is insane if she thinks being a mother is unpopular.
Exactly and I do share their anger>>673583>>673587
Sorry, I know this is sensitive for that reason. I guess I should say that i mean my whole opinion being unpopular, that no marriage isn't automatic hell BUT it shouldn't be for everyone or even most women, and if it is for someone she should be on equal ground to her husband. I absolutely sympathize with the way child free women feel. I know their anger is reasonable and necessary because of what the world tries to push, that every/most women should get married and pump out babies for their husband. I mean to say that I don't even think most should be mothers, no one should be unless they want to and will be treated equally. I just want there to be more even marriages. It's unpopular in certain communities to think that a woman being a happy mother/wife is possible and not every post enjoying it or even complaining slightly is a cry for help. But the suspicion and rage is justiifed and honestly necessary with how things are
kek dw I do that all the time, I've noticed lots of people tend to repeat phrases from posts they agree with. It just gets stuck in your head and you forget you read it. >>673598
Men see children as occasional kodak moments and a box ticked on their list of 'life achievements'. They don't expect their lives to change at all when they have a kid, and a lot of the time it doesn't. The reality is that 'spending time with your own child' involves a lot of boring work and drudgery, why help with that when your wife will do it and you can keep playing video games?
Maybe a weird comparison here but even with pets. I had an ex who spur of the moment insisted that we get guinea pigs. I had them as a child and he knew I liked them but I never suggested getting them again as an adult. Standing in a pet store he pushes me and seeing them there as baby pigs I am eventually persuaded. We get two, each picking one out, each paying half. Each naming one when we got home.
He never once cleaned the cage in the years that followed. When we split and it looked like I'd be moving to a shared place with him staying put so I asked about him caring for them temporarily. He scoffed and said they were my problem to rehome.. Again a weird comparison but in hindsight he also had a son from a previous relationship and it mirrored that. The ex wife complained that he wasn't doing enough. He left her, his role with the kid was absolutely minimal and even getting him to pay somewhat acceptable child support was a battle they had for years. That was a planned child. I was so blind to his flaws at the time… I'm lucky it was just pets in a cage.
If you have older family members you could just delete facebook and act like you're just taking a break from social media. I don't think anyone actually uses fb anyway
If we're talking about younger relatives, then make separate accounts, or again just pretend you don't use social media. It's a lot of effort, but if parent-posting bothers you then I guess it's worth it.
Speaking from personal experience I believe it's true that a lot of straight men have issues seeing women as anything but potential partners - or even less than that, like sexual objects. And I personally consider you lucky if you've never had an experience like that.
But also keep in mind this is Lolcow, where the vast, vast majority of women come to shit on men, because they'be been burned and feel like they can't do it anywhere else.
Don't get me wrong, I hate a lot of male behaviors and think women are right to be wary of them, especially after having experienced the same things. But I also don't think every single man is like that. There are some people on here who genuinely think all men are the devil though, no exceptions. If I were you I'd be glad I wasn't like them and can have positive, healthy relationships with men. But the cynic in me also wants to tell you to be careful and not be too trusting lest you get blindsided by a man's true nature one day.
I'm not into many feminine things so I've had more male friends over the years than female. A few have tried to fuck me after years of being normal, and when I say tried I mean they got real pushy. I'm a lesbian..
A male group that I was in the process of becoming friendly with had certain conversations in front of me that made me uncomfortable to put it lightly> 13 should be the age of consent really, girls are already so grown up nowadays
I'm wary now. That's not the same as just disliking people.
I have always loved them even when I ate a lot of sugar as a kid. I just prefer veggies and fruit over candy as a kid tbf. >>674124
People don't even need to know how to cook. They are just good as long as you wash and get them when they are best.
Well the point though most people don't know how to cook for shit now days.

, I have more scrote-like hobbies but that didnt scare girls away, you just need to make sure you have the same values as other women. Most women often value loyalty, life goals, and emotional/mental support and if you cant provide those they won’t prioritize you. However if you don’t have any hobbies together they’ll probably mention gossip/vent to you which is normal because what else are they going to talk about

It’s called “cancelling” these days. Just don’t get trolled EZ
kek. Anon, don't make me laugh… do you know any animals besides cats dogs and ferrets? Consider: reptiles and amphibians
>waste of money
They usually cost less than a dog or cat, and can be highly affordable depending on the type of reptile (think of the expenses that come w/ a dog and cat, even with adoption, medical records, getting shots done, spaying and neutering them, paying for their food, toys and bedding, grooming, vet visits, pet rent and pet deposit if you live in an apartment). The average snake can be bought for 100 or less, all of their supplies total to less than 75 dollars and they only eat once a week, with their food being bought in bulk at 25 dollars for a year supply.
>waste of time
2. You never need to walk your reptiles or play with them or give them any sort of attention. They are not needy whatsoever. You can leave them at home for a couple of weeks without worry and live your life without the burden of a dog or cat. (Or spending money for pet sitters/being a drag on your family and friends "can u watch my dog pls")
3. You'll be providing them a better life than they could ever have in the wild. They get to choose when they are warm or cool, they get a guaranteed meal every week and are safe from predators.
4. Snakes outlive dogs and cats by miles. The average lifespan of a dog is between 10 and 13 years. Cats average life being 16. The average lifetime of the most common pet snake, the ball python, is 30 years.
I could go on and on but you'd probably make a comment about how cold and distant those pets are. You can have your opinion but don't say "all animals" and be fucking factually incorrect with your next statement. I love dogs, cats and reptiles equally. None are better than the others, it's about personal preference but don't spout BS.
Samefag but >inb4 I'm not reading all that
cool here's a tldr: cheaper, no attention necessary, live longer by double the amount of years, they have abetter chance at life in captivity than in the wild.
Also forgot to mention that snakes prefer smaller hides and often feel unsafe/stressed in large open spaces. The only reason they'd need to move is to find food but why would they need to do that when they get food weekly?
I fully agree, being around these people is a huge pain in the ass unless they are actually doing something about it. In my opinion people also shouldn't date depressed folks that resolve their whole personality around nothing but "whining" and even through your friendship they do nothing but vent to you.
I still talk to my mentally ill friends, but only the ones who are at least trying to do something about it instead of making it up as an excuse for everything.
>>674401 > being around these people is a huge pain in the ass
I've known two different guys who made quite the habit of dating mentally ill women, as in every gf fit that. The first guy had this unhealthy need to help people and thought he could fix people just by loving them.
The second was a an asshole and he had 3 seperate gfs who all had been sexually abused as kids resulting in depressive/bpd behaviours. He took advantage of them. The hypersexuality that sometimes comes from CSA was a nice bonus for him and he loved that they'd cling to him even after he treated them like shit. There are types that are drawn to the mentally ill but they're sick in their own ways.
I had some rough patches in my twenties and I wish it had occured to me that I could take myself out of the dating pool for a few years and it wouldn't be the end of the world.

Anon, please tell me you aren't feeding a an adult ball python once a week… I'm not trying to act like the scrotes who are into snakes. That's just way too much.
Well it's not exactly mental illness as far as today's categories go, since currently it's more like "differently abled" than ill, but autism is also a good reason not to date or want to hang out with somebody.
At my university I'm in a group with an autistic guy. He's kindhearted and not mentally retarded, but he's way too much, and his autism is bringing everyone else down even if we're trying to be supportive. He's wasting everyone's time when teacher's aren't equipped to tell him to shut up and to not interject the lecture every 5 minutes, because they're being too polite and are overly paternalistic. He thinks women are a different species, and while he's the type to put them on a pedestal instead of going incel mode, it's still tiresome and it's impossible to break him out of thinking in strict categories. He's very hard to communicate with sometimes, and goes ahead and does things that we have to fix in his place, and he bears basically no consequences for his actions, while we're expected to keep him in check, but also treat him like an adult just like us.
Ever since I'm exposed to daily interactions with him, I realized that even high functioning autists can be difficult to handle, and that it's not just down to being patient and being very literal with wording, there will still be days I just want him to be gone or put into some kind of special education program so he doesn't hold us "normal" (neurotypical) people back.

Nta, but you can be a bigot even if you think the people you're against made a choice to do whatever you dislike them for.
You can be bigoted towards people who have had an abortion for example. and before anyone says it, yes I know sometimes abortions are a life-or-death situation for the mother. I'm talking about abortions that are done by choice

Christ, calm down, anon. You mentioned BPs in your first post. A lot of people don't know what they're doing when it comes to snakes. I have large snakes and notice people who get their first large snake usually have chunky snakes. I know BPs aren't large snakes. Sorry for making assumptions.
Very cute snake tho.
You don't just put them in the corner and leave them. You can take them out and let them explore around and oggle. It's whatever. I guess you hate fish and lizards and all other sorts of small creatures that you can't play catch with.
Get a boyfriend or girlfriend since you need to be loved by something so badly.

Big lips are ugly af I will never understand how looking kawaii is popular yet people overdraw or get filler on their lips. It’s not cute, it draws attention away from your eyes. Big lips only look good on people with wide, flat noses and those people are usually born with it. Lip fillers always make you look like a blowup doll. Picrel Kylie Jenner looks better without her inflated sausage lips
I disagree at heart but sometimes there are so many obstacles to getting better.
To me a big problem is society is so isolated, many of us lack community so if your situation is terrible there's no net to fall on. If only people had bigger families/communities/support networks who will help. Like then if there's an abusive
family they will actually see justice and the victims
get taken to someone else's care, who actually cares. Instead of everyone pretending not to see it or only temporary fixes
But then idk, people are huge enablers, that is really the heart of it. Partly because they don't know how to help but many don't want to admit something's wrong.

Every male haircut is shit, viscerally disgusting styles.
women's can be boring but there are at least some good options.
also it's been said but more men should have long hair (and learn to fucking groom it)
>picrel makes me feel violent
anon was wrong for that part, I know people with faces like yours who are natural and beautiful. I think scarjo is an example since she was young. imo it's natural > fake that's what matters
lip fillers tend to change the shape of the lips to look fake in an obvious way that the person didn't have before. it becomes uncanny to watch them speak or eat. For a few people it can work but it shouldn't be a trend
Ikr, what do they even want from us normal memory people? I won’t memorize the fucking bible or an encyclopedia just so I can talk about some random shit. I honestly think most smart
people are just autistic, they focus their brain on certain topics or whatever and that’s how they can talk about it with lots of details and shit.
It happens? There's a such thing as sexual chemistry without emotional chemistry. That's not me saying that I support one night stands or whatever. But with most people, you attraction is what draws you to someone. Not how much you think you'll love them in a month.
when u grow up or leave the Amish village you'll understand, it's ok anon
Are you trying to say that's the case for everyone in a FWB relationship? I'm sure there are tons of people out there who are friends for longer than a month before they start fucking. I'm still wondering why you would say I love you after only a month of being with someone. It's easy to know you wanna fuck someone. It's not as easy to know if you actually love a person.
Anyway, sex and love are different. Sometimes lust and love get confused with each other. Sometimes sex leads to love and vice versa. I feel like that's not that difficult of a concept.
So what scenario are you even talking about? If you're having sex with a person for a month at some point you're gonna actually talk to them. Again, why are you saying I love you to someone after a month?
>Friends with benefits is something that rarely exists
>It's usually just a guy who wants a gf without having to spend any money.
Do you think dating only consists of sex? Also, what does this mean in for the woman in the relationship then? What does she want?
I feel like this must be some anon from the "casual sex bad!!!" argument that happened here like 2 months ago that's coming back to once again shame people for having casual sex.
Do you really think women can't get anything out of having casual sex?
You said in your first post >The fact that you can be having casual sex with someone for like a month and you tell them you love them and thats considered weird is dumb to me
Then said >Why would people be fucking not even a month into knowing each other?
So do you think people are saying I love you to people they don't actually know aside from sex? Or are do you think that people are saying I love you to people they know because they are having sex? It's honestly confusing because you keep changing this imaginary casual sex scenario.
NTAYRT but can you at least admit that not every casual hookup will end with some chump who cums in under a minute?
Some of the best sex I've ever had was from hookups, and some of the worst sex I've ever had was when I was tied up in a relationship label. I'm not gonna debate with you on anything else but I do know for a fact that it's much easier to drop a selfish dude who underperforms than a committed boyfriend who expects you to compromise, train, and work with him through his broken dick issues. Come on.
kek did you forget that lesbians exist? Lesbians have casual sex too, without saying "I love you".
Anon you gotta be at least 18 to post here.
Guys, you're also forgetting how expertise comes into play.
Just because you're smart in one subject doesn't mean you're smart in others unless you truly are some kind of savant. Most ape brains do have limits and prioritize the information.

Teenage who think 30 is 50, it seems. I wonder which women they actally know in their 30's. Maybe women that have already 5 kids and only fit in potato sacks?
I can't comprehend how that's so common. I'm very low-maintenance, I want to get ready as quickly as I can and don't wear makeup, but my hair always looks clean. It's a cinch and all you need is regular washing. Are men so stunted they can't fucking shampoo?
Long hair does look good on men, if they learn from women and do the basic steps
to maintain it. Even saying "maintain" is misleading, it's not some difficult ritual, it's basic hygiene. end of sperg
I mean kids think everyone is old.
I hope anon doesn't think that just because teenagers feel like people in their 20's can't wear sexy clothes which I've never heard a teenager say tbh
that that really means it's "unacceptable" for people over 25 to wear sexy clothes.
Ugh I love men with long hair, but only if they take good care of it.>>675302
To be fair, not everyone has easy hair where you can get away with just a shampoo. If I do that, my hair looks like a haystack.
>>675315>It's a cinch and all you need is regular washing
Hair care isn't that simple for everyone anon, some hair types need special products, have dandruff, oily scalp, etc.
The difference is most women have long hair and are encouraged to make sure every inch of their body looks presentable at all times, and this isn't a thing for men. Women are used to having their hair criticized if it's greasy or frizzy. Short or long hair, nobody is criticizing men for looking unkempt.

Don't care. Men commit 90% of reported child sexual abuse cases and 80% of all victims
are female. But go off about the super secret female pedo child abuse rings on Twitter and how nerdy women liking cartoon boys are totally the same as men preying on irl children.
imagine thinking it's ok to sexualise and want to fuck kids at all
I wish mods would just permaban the resident pedo-anons here so we don't have to hear about their nasty fetishes anymore
Yes anon because female pedophiles don't prey on kids and think & talk about real children ever at all. Sexualizing children in any capacity isn't putting irl kids at risk at all. There are absolutely no male victims
of sexual abuse.
>>675566>There are absolutely no male victims of sexual abuse.
Funny you should mention that because in the cases of both female and male victims
the perpetrator is almost 100% of the time male.
>>675571>being such a sperg you don't even realize anon was on your side and being sarcastic
/ot/ is going to the dogs. However it's always funny as hell seeing how triggered

This, being aroused by kids does make you a pedo. Not necessarily a molester, but a pedo.
And it's fine to avoid these people because of their pedophilia.>>675564>Do you think violence in video games = murder?
Thoughts aren't crimes lmao. But as someone who used to have gory sexual fantasies, hell yeah I'd have acted them out irl in a lawless world.
That said, it's also fine to avoid gurofags. I've repressed that shit and never talk about it on social media, but if I was still obsessed and loud about it I'd expect some opposition.
Why scream about being a pedo but then also be ashamed and in denial? Dumb. Pick shame or pride, you can't do both.

In all honesty it hurts when someone compares fictional cartoons of loli/shota To real exploitation. CP will never compare to 2D cartoons. If this was the case, all loli and shota would have well been banned all over the internet by now
I don’t like loli/shota. I’m just frustrated someone would compare real abuse, which I and many other people have experienced, to cartoons

Don't worry, anon, I have almost no sweet tooth and mint chip is the best flavour.

Please, kys. Fucking licorice?? Are you serious?? Are your taste buds fucking fried??? Please get some help and die along the way. Jk anon but your taste still sucks
I can't help it if I don't enjoy my ice cream having like 10 million clashing things in it. >>675627>Butter pecan

I tried to read fanfic in tumblr, ao3 and Wattpad but it never work on me.
I just feel their relationship never realistic and feel really fictionally rather original works.
I prefer fanart or comic rather than fanfic tbh
And Reader x fanfics are mostly cringe
Holy shit, I thought I was the only one who felt like this.

I feel like this is isn’t a bad place to lurk and post every few times, the anons here are not completely unhinged with an echo chamber like on Twitter or 4chins, they got different opinions, which is why there’s infighting
but it’s logical, of course people will start arguing when they don’t agree on different stuff.

Girls who come to talk shit about their boyfriends and ignore farmer advice to dump him deserve to be banned. No one wants to hear about your relationship problems girl, get some real fucking friends to vent to.
I love relationship drama though.
And tbh if I help in making stubborn anons see the light about their worthless scrotes little by little, then that makes me happy. They can't be in denial forever.
I hate it when anons in actual abusive
relationships shit on common sense advice. I'm kinda done being the one to type out 3 thoughtful paragraphs warning them in a sympathetic way and then having them revert back to saying "oh well no actually he's the best thing to ever happen to me so shut up saying he's not"
Plus dogs don't necessarily love you unconditionally. My family rescued a dog from a negligent owner, and when we got her to come out of her shell, she was the sweetest thing ever. When her old owner came by to see her, she growled and bared teeth. She wasn't even actively abusive
to the dog, just negligent. You have to put in to get out, and that's not always a bad thing.
>>676035> I truly do not understand what they expect to hear when all they talk about is negative shit in their post
Probably deep down wanting a second opinion to see if their feelings are justified as abusive
bf has gaslighted them so much they actually think they are unreasonable for getting upset when he cheats
It’s not worth replying though because someone in that deep isn’t going to leave because a couple of anons said to
>>676240>It’s not worth replying though because someone in that deep isn’t going to leave because a couple of anons said to
I disagree that it's not worth it. You're right that it's very unlikely someone is going to leave right in that moment, maybe not even months down the line. But speaking as someone who used to be in an emotionally abusive
relationship and posted online, even though I didn't implement all the advice right away, I did take people's opinions to heart. When I ended up leaving about two years later, those same opinions had definitely been part of a long journey that resulted in me opening my eyes and getting help. After I'd heard that my ex's behaviors were abusive
so many times I finally started reading more on the topic and realized his actions were wrong, and maybe I didn't deserve it. You never know what part your words might play.
I completely understand how frustrating it is when you give good advice and the other person is too blind to see it. You don't have to take the time to try and help if it's too mentally draining. I now often find myself in the same position others used to be in for my sake. I'll keep doing it though, because I have hope that those women may eventually free themselves like I did.
Ayrt, I’m glad it helped you and you managed to free yourself. It sounds like we’ve been in really similar relationships, I could have almost written your post. However what I took from the experience was that no one thing anyone said changed anything. I knew that my relationship was pretty fucked up, I knew I was being abused, but it took years for me to actually understand and accept that iykwim. Reading shit that confirmed what I knew didn’t really help because each instance was like a tiny grain of salt: completely ineffectual and inmemorable alone, though I agree that the pile it formed did have some impact.
You sound like a good soul, hopefully you can help people, but I do think it’s a waste of other anons time if they think their one comment will make an anon leave

The people that unironically buy pic related and prefer crunchy cereal over soggy cereal are probably satan’s lost soul fragments.
I've always thought gift cards are retarded if you fully intend to both give and receive from the person in question (say, during Xmas). Think if you both gave gift cards. Then you'd literally just be swapping money you could've held onto to buy yourself something in the first place. The whole point of a gift is to show there was some
thought and consideration behind it. The only time they make sense is for an employee present where you know jack shit about the person and aren't expecting anything back.

I think women are becoming more understanding of it, it's come full circle and most feminist discussions about NLOGing are going to eventually point out how fucked it is that girls think they need to distance themselves from their gender to feel like worthwhile humans.
It's still worth mocking though, people learn by getting shit on by the internet.
There's different types of "not like the other girls" girls
1. The one who was trying to impress guys
2. The one who was generally more of a tomboy
3. The one who felt "othered". Aka me
I just always elt left out/different and needed to rationalize it in my head. It was a mix of me being into more traditionally boy things like video games as well as being a minority, as well as being very shy.
I’m sorry but >NLOGing being NLOG
made me laugh
this is what i hate about this nlog shit
it's turned right around to where any girl who isn't ultra feminine and sexual is nlog or pickme
it's annoying that this is considered woke

, you don't get it, you're just some kink shaming prude
I agree, actually think gift cards or money is the best present as you’re gifting someone the choice.
Generally hate both giving and receiving gifts. Giving is stressful, it’s hard to find a gift. If you choose something they like they probably already have it or something similar, or someone else might gift the same thing. It might also be slightly wrong. There can also be awkward situations where the values of the respective gifts are very different, especially when you’ve not yet established a precedent. “Just ask!” Well my dumb culture doesn’t like to talk about money so the person would say they don’t care but then still get offended later.
Receiving has the same issues. The only times I get something I actually want is when I tell someone the exact item. I’m not interested in generic women’s gifts like candles and pampering giftsets so they end up regifted or sold.
Funny thing is I think my love language might be gift giving? I love noticing people don’t have something and buying it for them like nice gloves in winter, or getting a friend’s favourite coffee when they come to stay. I just hate enforced gift-giving culture.
Tl;dr I hate Christmas
>>676450>it's just that they use their non conformity to get male attention and praise
Is this even a real thing? If it is it's like 100 times less than just women getting shit on for being GNC.
Going around saying you're not like other girls is the polar opposite way to get approval from guys who 1) interpret this as you being bitchy and drama-y, like they do anything resentful or boastful said by women 2) prefer traditionally feminine looking and acting women they get a bigger ego boost from "winning", or else that wouldn't be the traditional gender role 3) actually get angry when a woman has stereotypically male hobbies because they think you're trying to infiltrate and ruin their boys only club 4) get super insecure that a woman might know more about it or are better at it than them.
Try using a microphone in a multiplayer video game and see how much positive male attention you get.
I understand what you're saying but I don't understand how you haven't encountered this. Have you never seen a movie or novel where the guy says "I've never met a girl like you" or something? Usually because she eats burgers, has a male coded hobby so he doesn't have to listen to her talk about something he doesn't understand, doesn't bitch about annoying things like equal rights, is still conventionally attractive and dtf. He's ok with her taking part in his hobby because she doesn't bring feminism into it and panders to his misogyny, she's just a bro with boobies.
Nlogs and their male targets operate on the belief that all women are bitchy, prissy and vain which is why they say things like "girls are too much drama, I'm one of the guys" and moids eat it up.

I think internetgirl is really cute and I'd love to have her body and confidence. I think her face is very cute, too.
To be honest it's important to recognize the harmful stereotype of women putting each other down and trying to rise above each other but it's a survival tactic in a male-dominated world, not something born out of pure vanity and evil. The society keeps forcing a certain frigid mold on women and everything not fitting in it is seen as "not female" so you really can't blame women for thinking they don't qualify to be one. Most of the time when I see women implying "I'm just not like other girls" it's because they don't have enough female role models and encouragement to be as they are instead of sincerely thinking they're "better" than staceys. The insufferable queen bees who do this shit to gain male approval are much rarer and better described as Pickmes like >>676491
said, and even they are as tragic as they are annoying.
>>676692>This is honestly one of her more toned-down looks.
I think people are shitting on her because they don't know who she is, and purely looks wise, it's cringey/Not Good.
>>676486>Have you never seen a movie or novel where the guy says "I've never met a girl like you" or something?
Yeah and this only happens in works of fiction written by 50 year old men who have no idea how teenage girls act or live. Every youtube video and article about "NLOGs" is centred around fictional characters usually from stupid comedy movies or trashy YA books, it's not actually a widespread real thing since most men are horrible to tomboys.
IRL pickmes do the polar opposite of "being one of the guys" by playing up how uwu submissive and feminine they are and how they believe in traditional gender roles unlike those nasty feminists trying to be men, which is how you can actually suck-up to men by putting down other women.
I could literally give a rat's ass about college graduates in student debt and them trying to convince the lower class they deserve $50k more than everybody else. Many of us didn't have the privilege to go to college and those that did realized we were too poor to continue going.
It is not our responsibility for your financial instability. It's not our fault your other classmates are richer than you, we see you the same exact way. And the fact they're trying to say "Well, we were forced by our parents and teachers to go and we were young!" I still don't care. You had that privilege to choose between going to school and entering the workforce to obtain a higher class status, and being young still doesn't matter, people your age decided not to go too. They also try to guilt us by saying "Well, I don't have a good job after graduating, I make $11 an hour!" Guess what, so do the rest of us that didn't graduate. You're just temporarily broke. Have you all complaining ever considered dropping out and putting it on hold for a few years? Why not? Mom and dad told you you wouldn't succeed without a degree? Imagine, just literally, imagine how you're spitting in the face of two thirds of the population right now, the population that never had that choice you made. I don't feel any sympathy, because in a couple years, that debt will be paid off and your high salary job you got with that degree will let you go on so many vacations and travel around the world without thinking twice about your finances. Meanwhile, majority of us will keep the world turning. Us custodians, line workers, machine operators, farmers, service industry workers, daycare providers, electricians, plumbers, etc… Do you get the picture? All of us that do the dirty work are lower class, and there's way more of us then there are of you.
I literally just want you guys to admit you hate the working class. Also, if you have a degree, you are not working class, full stop. Also consider the fact we have debts as well. We also have the choice of saving up for something to buy, like a used car, and paying it off in full instead of getting a loan taken out. Honestly, every argument I've heard coming from a college graduate to try to get sympathy is not working on me and many others.
I sympathize with you wholeheartedly, anon, but what in the world? You're mad at the wrong people. You should be mad at FAFSA (if you're in the U.S.), the government, and the heads of institutions. Plenty of working-class individuals coming from a wide range of unfortunate circumstances are trying to put themselves through school as we speak. Are you of the opinion that only rich people should go into high paying professions since they already have the money to put themselves through all of their schooling? It's literally impossible under the current loaning system and wages of the United States for every college graduate to graduate without loans or debt. They should throw a pity party because that absolutely sucks. Like you, people are trying their hardest to provide for themselves and pursue a better life. That doesn't mean they should have to suffer the whole way through. Hell, the majority of college students are
the working class/blue-collar workers like you. They damn sure won't all end up at some white-collar job in the end either.
You realize that the majority of people you're complaining about have the amount of debt that they do specifically because
they're middle class or higher…right? Like, I do understand your frustrations, but you sound very ill-informed about how financial aid works. The poor and working class are actually more likely to receive aid and graduate with less debt, or even none at all.
Sorry, but the "I'm too poor to afford school!!" excuse is just as dumb and annoying and more often than not is coming from a place of bitterness and ignorance. Fill out a fucking FASFA before you assume you can't afford school. Most I know who make these claims have never even tried to do this and just screech louder at you when you try and tell them they have options. You aren't a victim
This is some prime bitter proletariat sperg. >>676796
A of the office jobs are just blue collars of today to begin with. It's not like a college degree magically grants you a high paying job, a lot of people have to deal with a 25-30k annual salary even after earning a degree. And some blue collars can also pull in a decent 40-60k salary like construction workers and automotive mechanics and plumbers. It's honestly a myth that all working class positions would earn the wages of a grocery store cashier.
You are actually I'll informed, despite there being away more lower class people in the country, the middle class and up receive about three times more in government aid.
I have filled out FAFSA, I went to college for a year and all I got was $600 a semester. Meanwhile, I had classmates who were getting $2,000 a semester, same school and all, and they had parents who were more well off than mine.
The government doesn't care about low income individuals. They're going to give majority of the funds to the high class because they're seen as useful members of society. They consume more product than any other demographic.
>>676780>Many of us didn't have the privilege to go to college
Assuming you're in the first world and didn't piss away your grades in high school and weren't selecting private degree mill colleges: You had grants, scholarships, fellowships, and all sorts of assistance available to you if you were smart and poor. In fact I think the biggest hurdle would be transportation assuming you'd try to weasel out of student housing on campus that was also typically covered by assistance programs.
A girl I knew from high school didn't ever score better than me, but she was given grants and aid to go to my same college just because her family was poor. She even had a MacBook and other electronic shit given to her and the ONLY stipulation was that she had to uphold an above average gpa–and spoiler alert, she couldn't be assed.
>It is not our responsibility for your financial instability.
Okay? So no food, housing, medical care, or child support welfare services for the poors either, then. Nobody is responsible for anybody and if you don't have yours then fuck you.
>You had that privilege to choose between going to school and entering the workforce to obtain a higher class status
There is no guarantee in hell that entering the workforce with no education will give you a "higher class status" unless perhaps you're a white male.
What usually happens is that those people hit an earning ceiling and have to take night courses and acquire some kind of certification class which cost $$$ to advance in their careers anyway.
>They also try to guilt us by saying "Well, I don't have a good job after graduating, I make $11 an hour!" Guess what, so do the rest of us that didn't graduate.
But you just said entering the workforce straight away will higher your class status, which is it.
>Have you all complaining ever considered dropping out and putting it on hold for a few years?
Once you take out a loan and are not an active student after a time, the loans start accruing interest separate from the principle balance. You are literally burning money to drop out and fuck around for years figuring out what you want. That's why people are so pressed to graduate and be job placed immediately.
>that debt will be paid off and your high salary job you got with that degree will let you go on so many vacations and travel around the world without thinking twice about your finances.
But people are making 11 an hour, anon. Because there's no guarantee to advance anymore.
>Us custodians, line workers, machine operators, farmers, service industry workers, daycare providers, electricians, plumbers, etc
Tons of people in those professions hold degrees. You have class traitors in your ranks.
>I literally just want you guys to admit you hate the working class. Also, if you have a degree, you are not working class.
Being considered working class has nothing to do with whether you have an education. It's about your occupation. Hint: You can be educated and be working class based on your job and lack of wealth privilege. Debt is not privilege.
>Also consider the fact we have debts as well.
Okay and I'm sure you don't consider that debt–whether you spent it on food, clothes, rent, car, or shelter–a privilege.
>We also have the choice of saving up for something to buy, like a used car, and paying it off in full instead of getting a loan taken out.
You know damn well you're not saving up and paying in full for a $40-60 new car. False equivalence. If college education were the price of a small junky beater car then literally no one would cry about having to pay a measly few grand. See: Europe.
This is why we need to get rid of outrageous college debt so anons like you can go get an education even though you were retards in your teen years.
I'm not, I'm just saying these are considered working class jobs because they don't require degrees. Some of us recognize we didn't have to get a degree to get the experience needed to get paid well enough. Even still, we're not getting paid salary. Those with degrees now have the opportunity to make salary no matter how poor or well your employer's business is doing. That's a big difference.>>676847
I filled it out with mother as my only guardian since my dad and her weren't married and she made only $13 an hour at the time.>>676843>You know damn well you're not saving up and paying in full for a $40-60 new car
No one said anything about a new car, I've paid off a $5k car. Even then, with expensive cars, we aren't asking the government to help us pay it off.>This is why we need to get rid of outrageous college debt so anons like you can go get an education even though you were retards in your teen years.
No, we don't want to perpetuate a broken system. Forgiving college debt is not going to help anybody except for those getting helped, people who've already graduated and their children who are going to suffer the same until you stop guilting your children to "go to college or you're a retarded poorfag"
>>676862>Forgiving college debt is not going to help anybody except for those getting helped, people who've already graduated and their children who are going to suffer the same until you stop guilting your children to "go to college"
Ohhhhh so you're one of those types of people. I'm ( >>676796
) but you gotta be joking. Honestly, it's more selfish for someone to say "well I
had to suffer with my debt, so everyone after me should too." The whole point of debt forgiveness is to relieve those who have already graduated and
those still in the process of getting their degree. Ultimately, you shouldn't have to pursue higher education in order to get a good paying job, but let's not pretend like every job shouldn't require someone to have to pursue higher education. Not to mention, plenty of confounding factors aside from socioeconomic status or the possession of a degree can contribute to someone ending up at a low paying job. If the government can cut billionaires a break for the large amount of income they're making, they should cut low-income people some slack too and give them adequate assistance.
>>676862>I've paid off a $5k car
LOL who cares! That's such a petty amount of money compared to a $40k loan. I've paid off a little over $3k on my car in the last year and I don't make shit, that isn't special and isn't an absurd amount of money even by poorfag standards.>we don't ask the government help pay it
You do when you file for debt consolidation and bankruptcy, actually. They can't confiscate your mode of transportation within reason. Look that shit up.
And if you're not poor enough to be considering debt help and bankruptcy then check your privilege.
>No, we don't want to perpetuate a broken system.
Keeping unfair and incredulous debt does not help fix the broken system. No one arguing for debt elimination says "Yes get rid of my debt but charge everyone after me and keep the same system!" This is a strawman.
>Forgiving college debt is not going to help anybody except for those getting helped.
Except for boost the economy because then people can take out mortgages for property ownership, buy from markets, and invest in the economy cause they won't have student debt bogging them down.
But sure, eliminating debts help no one.
Anon your stupidity is the BEST argument for free college right now alone.
You honestly don't understand. The government isn't going to help the non-college educated. Jobs wanting people to pursue higher education are only doing so because they want them to have debts owed, which means they will stay within the company longer compared to those without a college education. >>676868
You really just believe we're low income because we don't know how to spend our own finances? You do realize you're assuming based on your own circumstances. We know our worth, what was need to buy, and we know how to be financially stable while in poverty. The largest demographic of high school dropouts are Latinos and only one forth of the overall low income Latino population is in some sort of government assistance, which is incredible because every other low income demographic sits at half of them being in government assistance. It's possible. >Boost the economy because then people can take out mortgages for property ownership…
You're more likely to own a home if you have a degree. Again, only thinking about the privileged one third of the population. God, you guys really think the world revolves around you.
Just imagine tarding out in school thinking the kids going to college are gonna be crabs in the bucket with their crippling debt anyway, only to get big mad when years later society moves to eliminate college debt and that you could've gone to college too if you had applied yourself.
Anon must be pissed.
Literally, what are you going to learn spending $18k for a year of classes that is going to apply for your specific position that you can't simply get trained by your employer for? >>676890
I'm not butthurt about being poor. I don't have any debts under my name, I'm financially stable.>Join the military
So you're saying to get help from the government, yeah, got it. No thanks, kek. You guys really love the government.
What about warehouse/manufacturing types of jobs, because they're starting to require hiring on people with degrees, even though previous hires didn't need such qualifications?>Employers don't have the resources/time to employ under skilled people
So then why do people assume these same employers should get taxed higher so they help forgive debts? It's all going to backfire on the employees. Hours will be cut and jobs will be lost.
Or maybe you should be considerate the fact your college degree grants you safety. It's interesting only ten percent of America's most dangerous jobs require a bachelor's degree. I don't need to work two jobs, I have established a full time job that leaves me with expendable income. What are you even trying to insinuate? >Working poor is an admirable class
I'm not saying that kek, I'm saying this is the reality for two thirds of the population. Jesus, you guys are afraid of being part of the majority.
I don't really understand this privilege argument. What exactly are you angry about, isn't the real problem your government? Why shouldn't college debts be forgiven? What is the good in them? Should people just be punished for going to school?
And like, while we're at this "Stop thinking you're the center of the world, you richfags, reeeee", why not go full "No one gives a fuck about you privileged people employed with full-time jobs in first world countries who have time to be posting on imageboards to seethe about other privileged people who are a bit richer than you, all the while you're basically all living comfortably off of the resources taken from the labor and subjugation of countries your government has crippled with exploitation, genocide, manufactured war, etc"? You're definitely not at the bottom of the barrel, it gets so much deeper and much worse.
Some Americans are weird as fuck with their victim
olympics, because those who have the income and free time to be on the internet talking about privilege (and are even really educated on the meaning of privilege) are literally privileged. Even within the USA, they're not at the bottom of the shitheap. Try the poorest parts of the Appalachians for that. Who are you even fighting at this point? Yourselves?
Yes, the problem is the government. I see no benefit in trying to ask the government to help me financially. I don't think debts should be forgiven because they made the choice to continue going to an optional higher education, which most people cannot set aside time and resources to do so in the first place. I think people should think harder about their financial decisions when it comes to opportunities, such as higher education. Yes, I do have that privilege of being able to reeee in the unpopular opinion forum of this website, with access to the internet. I understand I'm not at the bottom of the barrel, I would just like to understand why a third of the population would try to convince the rest of us why they should get monetary forgiveness. I could think of millions of others, such as those at the bottom of the barrel (who are more than likely in that position because they tried to reach out for help from the government), who deserve this help more than them, but of course, it is the government who chooses who they ultimately want to help.
So no one should get higher education? Or only the rich people that can pay for it? Then the people that can’t pay for a higher education should just not study because they can’t, which means they will have to find a job they might not want because maybe they saw themselves doing something that requires a higher education like… you know, teaching, because an online course isn’t the same as studying the whole career with the resources the university/college gives and the guidance the decent teachers/professors also give, specially if we’re talking about ED, which I’m pretty sure not everyone is already into, so the numbers of people studying something that requires a throughout preparation would lower and thus you would have lots of families struggling to keep their special needs children in a school system that is already quite a challenge for a common child.
This is just going through the whole education system thing something whatever, life will always go on and the world will always have a deficit of professionals that are actually qualified and up to do what they were studying for.
lmao i'm from literal who eastern europoor country and omw to get a masters, die mad lol.
tbf i do think your view is extremely american, I wonder if you would have pursued education if it was free or very cheap. if i had to pay american costs for a degree i would not have been afford to study, however, my bachelors was completely free, i just had to work to sustain myself.

Basketball mostly relies on how well you dribble and shoot a basket. I'm 6feet tall (yes you've probably seen me comment elsewhere by that statement alone lol) I've played basketball for a few years and sucked at it. Volleyball is the sport that I was better at.
Student loans allow for people of all classes to get access to opportunities and careers. Forgiving inflated student debt is not a big deal, money is finite and releasing that money when classes have obviously been paid for, resources have been used and teacher salaries have been paid paying interest when those with degrees are working should be forgiven, or when the job market is over saturated with skilled employees and there's not enough positions about its better to let go of interest and debt and let people fucking spend so the economy and capital can increase.
There are apprentice ships, fast track courses and ways to specifically become skilled in your desired field, or you can chase a wage and become skilled in wherever you can get your foot in the door. There's no need to be so bitter.
I think she's pretty, I just hate her hair. It's such a frumpy old lady cut and instantly ages anyone regardless of their looks.
I always thought she was more considered beautiful for her style than her face though.
The haircut is horrifying. She would have been so much prettier if she had any other style.
Oh well, I guess it doesn't matter now.
I'm seeing this too - I moved from a Muslim shithole to a rich Western country and the cognitive dissonance these people have is astounding.
They hate immigrants for taking their jobs but whine because they all want to be doctors and CEOs and nobody's taking the jobs immigrants get. The blame is
partially on people who made these jobs the way they are today, but some of them aren't even that bad and people are just whiny because they think cleaning jobs are below them.
Young people here are also incredibly spoiled. It's great they care about political issues but they never care about the most impactful ones because they're boring and hard to solve (which is why they are major issues). They don't want to give up their daily comforts because it's not their job to save the planet, but will throw money at black trans sex workers on GoFundMe to virtue signal and yell at you if you don't put #BLM in your instagram bio even though the US literally wanted to bomb your native country at the beginning of the year.
They don't care about people dying of pollution, women in Pakistan being maimed, Coca Cola buying off water supply in third world countries, they don't even care about similar issues in their own country because reading about them is ~too depressing~ but they are all about trans kweers of color and supporting kweer businesses by buying more sparkly trinkets from their instashop.
Many of them don't even have proper jobs, they live off disability benefits or their family's money and cry how hard they have it while expecting everyone to treat them like their mom and dad (while and the same time calling their parents abusive
for grounding them when they were 5).
I wish I could at least call people like this out on their bullshit but where I live it's literal hate speech, so… I'm just gonna seethe online.
>>677056>Student loans allow for people of all classes to get access to opportunities and careers
And the biggest demographic of people who get the most finding for these opportunities are the upper middle class.>Forgiving inflated student debt is not a big deal
It is a big deal, because those debt dollars are going to hit the lower class the hardest. Employers who get taxed will start laying off their workers and sending people home early to make up for the losses. >releasing that money when classes have obviously been paid for
Paid for with government dollars. You're expecting the govt to just throw more money at something it already thew money at, which is only giving colleges the incentive to keep raising prices if they are aware people will just continuously take out higher loans. This inflation of prices is similar as to why medical bills are so expensive when you're paying with insurance. If you are not covered, the price is lowered, still unreasonable though. Someone without insurance will be paying $90 out of pocket for a check-up, meanwhile someone covered will be charged $230 with a $20 copay for the same checkup procedure.>there's not enough positions about its better to let go of interest and debt and let people fucking spend so the economy and capital can increase
There are jobs becoming available every day because the population is increasing and industries get bigger because of it. Maybe not available in a 3 mile radius, but within a 15 mile radius, there's tons more positions. Also, let people spend on what? Things that are unnecessary? You are just letting people get away with less responsibilities. Honestly, why are these people more deserving of $50k when there are people who make $10k a year? That's 5 years of someone's life. $50k for college graduates is a half year of their life. This is just telling those at the lower end they are not worthy of help unless they sacrifice their flow of income, affecting their work-life balance to either switch to part time, risk losing their established job, or stay full time and use up their free time to sign up for schooling and take out loans if the options available to them aren't cheap enough. People keep bringing up cheap alternatives to college too, which is great, so why didn't you guys that took out loans and now want to be forgiven go to those college alternatives if you knew they were an option as well?
It's not even worth bragging about, humbly or otherwise. Who cares how smart you were as a kid if it didn't translate into adulthood? They can make endless excuses as to why their giftedness held them back from getting a good degree and career, but lbr if they were really THAT smart it wouldn't be so difficult.
t. former 'gifted' kid who is simply not very smart after all, and it became immediately obvious after high school.
If there are supposedly so many gifted kids all of a sudden, aren't they then just average?
But they all get immensely butthurt when you even so much as suggest that.

So then you don't agree with OP? According to her you can go out into the wild blue yonder with the education and skills that you currently have and be able to achieve higher class status if you just pull yourself up by your bootstraps enough and don't be stupid with money. Follow your dreams.
Anons are mad because that's bullshit.
Is she saying that? I'm having a hard time following the paragraphs. It sounds like she is angry at middle class people for being middle class
I kind of get her point about the issues of student debt but what about places where they have none? Shouldnt that be ideal whether it enrages her or not
OP probably just read too many stupid comments by entitled upper middle class gender studies majors, who are mad because they won't be as wealthy as their parents.
And now OP's railing against that specific straw man, as if those are the only people that would benefit from loan forgiveness. I think that's why they keep talking past each other. I think OP might even agree that higher education should be cheaper.

I just want to add that my family works in agriculture and farming, and most of the young people in agriculture do actually have a varied range of degrees in the area, the younger workers went to vocational school or straight up have a bachelor's degree in Agronomics, Farm Animal Veterinary, Biology etc.
Older workers have over 10+ of experience which makes up for their lack of degree, but even then they will most likely have taken courses to work with the nescessary machinery.
Farming isn't stuck in the 19th century.
Take a chill pill, its /ot/.
Also lmao im not samefagging lol i was reading the discussion and decided to add my two cents on it because it hadn't died yet.
adding on to your point, alot of ag students also go to LGUs and those schools often have very good ag study programs, research labs, internship opportunities, pre-vet ect. Im at a LGU and my school offers a huge scholarship and there are alot of poor, underrepresented minority's, and women who receive it. they practically encourage people to apply and expand the program, agriculture isnt just farms anymore, its fashion merchandising, culinary/dietetics, animal sciences ect. that are all good paying jobs that are in high demand, that often come with scholarship and networking opportunitys as well.

I think it's unpopular, inspired by this post >>677737
in twitter thread.
The fact someone did a self destructive act for attention shouldn't be automatically considered a reason to invalidate the attempt; and it really seems to be. We as human beings have a natural need to be heard and understood, being deprived of that could have damaging effects on a person; I wish reactions to a failed suicide attempt wouldn't be "if you meant it you'd try harder" or, more common, with cutting as a self harm method, "if you really meant it you'd cut along the veins not across" or so. Why reject and ridicule a person who already went through so much rejection they had to find a physical way of manifesting their internal pain that was ignored by others up to that point? Do they really have to actually die to be heard?

I can't stand people who post like "Recently I have been diagnosed [Insert Mental Disorder]" without showing any medical or hospital proof
Like I know opening up about your mental health is really hard but most people just use it so they can have a special treatment in certain community or some clout chasing shit. Do this people realize that doing this is actually hurting with people who actually struggling and medically diasogned with mental issue . I hate that becoming a mentally ill is a fucking trend.

>>678143>My main issue is that most of mentall illness need medical diagnosis. Sure some type of mental illness can be self diagnosis.
DID and Autism usually get a lot of fake clout chaser.
I think consideration of the individual needs to be taken into account for self diagnosis even for obvious ones like anxiety and depression.
Some people misdiagnose even these for clout as you mentioned they do for other "trendy" mental illnesses.
I have never once interacted with a person that had legit DID and have talked to a lot of these types from all over the internet.
The obvious bullshit ones are the ones that say they have fictional character alters but even people that claim they just revert to a child and have no knowledge I have caught out on lying.
As someone whose mental health has fucked their life beyond repair it is very anoying to see people pretend to be mentally ill.
I do not even like the label.
I have taken pics in a ward before as proof lol
Same, I can't stand self-diagnosis clout chasers because they always choose the "cute" mental illnesses. Or use it as a convenient excuse for bad behavior.
It's even worse when they use it as an easy excuse for bad behavior.
I remember thinking DID was so cool and interesting as a stupid middle schooler, but watching DID documentaries about how fucked up the circumstances were for DID individuals and how the illness completely ruins their lives/stresses their friends and family took all the allure right out of it. I just hope the dumb teens using it for online RP funtimes and popularity grow out of the phase.

Real mental illness is scary to even the most accepting normalfags and I do not just mean schizoprenia I mean depression and anxiety that leaves you living in your own filth self harming to all shit.
I have my own theory for why mental illness is a LARP for these people and I think it comes down to realizing that they are not unique or special as they were told because the internet.
I sometimes like to chat to random people and if I look at reddit on the friend boards most people use their sexuality and "mental illness" as a descriptor for who they are.
>It's even worse when they use it as an easy excuse for bad behavior.
This so much, I am BPD and hate when people blame their behaviour on BPD like I get it I cannot control how I feel but I can control how I act.
>>678056>I saw a vid of someone reading out hate tweets about that guy and people were sounding ragey over some petty stuff.

People need to realize that their mental illness is not their WHOLE identity
Literally something you learn as a mental health professional language that separate the illness from the person, ie> person with depression
to prevent reducing the person to their illness and improve their opportunities to heal and thrive. You'd think the professionally mentally ill online would know that, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Bullying exists for a reason and I'm glad I was bullied. Cyberbullying is funny as heck too, just walk away from the screen you dumdum.
then get thicker skin or remove yourself from the toxic
place you're in, unless you want to comfortably continue being the victim
You can't expect people to change and stop being bullies, you need to change or get better support
and if youre fat just eat a salad, theres a solution for everything besides crying bullying. Some people call being outcasted for being weird and antisocial "bullying" and continue being insufferable.
Ntayrt but this gets posted so fucking often already, we get it
'dumb dumb kids just toughen up'
There's no point dealing with vague hypotheticals and making sweeping (retarded) statements like yours when bullying varies that much in severity and effects. You simplifying it like that IS a cope. A poor cope to save yourself from having to think too hard.
Ayrt and I wasn't bullied myself. Nobody ever said you weren't entitled to give an opinion?? You are the only one who is acting weirdly thin-skinned about discussing it >your commentary is unnecessary
Threads are for having conversations anon kek
Honest question but why do you guys care so much about people faking or exaggerating it? it's like you said, normies already don't care or are afraid of mentally ill people so what is the harm a couple of fakers on twitter do?
It's a bit annoying but i can't bring myself to hate or care, good for them that they're not actually ill and having to go through this shit everyday. And it's not like we get any perks or special treatment so they're not taking anything from us.
It already isn't taken seriously though, the stigma is already there and it isn't budging. Even if you don't tell a soul about whatever you have some symptoms will still get through and people will bitch at you for them or believe you're lazy/stupid/dramatic even if they've never seen a twitterfag go on about how they're so depwessed. It's just a non issue in real life it seems.
Also not every sick person is trying to get better lol, treatment is different for everyone plus it's expensive and tiring, sometimes we just give up on meds and therapy, not only fakers do that.
Idk i pity them, if they have nothing else going on besides a label and prescription they sound pretty miserable and not in a good place either.
Not the anon you're replying to, but I believe they had an "epiphany" of sorts from reading that line, "It takes a tard to know a tard." This site is based on laughing at cows, identifying them, archiving them, and just… condemning them; perhaps they felt like this site is just one huge cope for the real cows, the cows behind the screens laughing at others who were a bit too public with their awful behavior. Either that, or they just feel too old for this site and its supposed immaturity (or both!).
I occasionally feel this way too, so I visit /ot/ and /m/ more for anonymous and free discussion, without all the disgusting behavior from 4chan. I also believe, however, that this site has its own culture and it's not fair to judge it when you yourself are using the site.

the worst thing is that ppl like this are also unable to have convos about real life stuff outside of reddit, where ppl use pop culture references non-stop, because they don't know how to express themselves otherwise. robert ebert was right when he said that ppl in fandom are socially inept and use it as a security blanket, kek.

Sorry Anon I can't stop thinking about this image when you mention this type of people
having interests is healthy and fun and can bring people together, which is why i don't think it's just being heavily interested in something that's the problem. it's the combination of isolating yourself from others (claiming it's because u are an ~introvert~) and not being present in real life. it's surrounding yourself with the same ppl & the same topics until the point where talking about other (especially real life) topics makes u feel uncomfortable
and feeling like u are out of ur comfort zone. it's not wanting to improve yourself, being lazy and not actively trying to grow as a person. and it's taking ur fandom stuff waaaaay too seriously. as long as u are self-aware i think it's somewhat hard to even become a fandom loser.
I think anon means you can't dominate a conversation or only talk about a weird subject when no one else is interested. It's obnoxious when one person can't read the room and understand that not everyone wants to hear about whatever autistic subject they're interested in.
This guy I used to know would always bring up watching porn (in normal conversations) and it was cringey as fuck. Nobody wants to hear about your fap sessions or how some porn star is ugly, stfu.

>NEETs are actually people that had one of these jobs as their first jobs, were pressured to stick it out, snapped suddenly and then couldn't bring themselves to go back to work.
I got crushed several times in my previous jobs and nobody supported me. All my friends and family basically said to "not become a leech" and to "grow up" whenever I expressed my problems. It got so bad that I ended up on meds during my NEET period. I'm doing better now, thankfully, but just the idea of being in an office or retail environment for 8 hours a day, meetings, performance reviews, etc, trigger the hell out of me. My current job is remote and all my communications with the company are via email or text, so it's as close to ideal as it gets. I'm also developing my own business, so if all goes well this job will be the last time I ever work for someone else's company ever again.
Holy shit, literally the same story, the same type of family response. Currently I'm working online as well but the pay isn't great, however, I'll take less pay in exhange for no office politics.

>>679675>I also feel like white women get more hate than white men.
Women are just more shit on in general. The same could be said that black women get more hate than black men.
Thought it was funny when 'Karen' took off as a white woman insult after so many derogatory 'name' insults have been made for women of other races already. Just goes to show it was only a matter of time.
Society has no fucking respect for women at all and women themselves are raised to think they aren't shit either.
men have no karen equivalent. men have no words like "bossy" or "fiery" or "cute" to describe their feelings in a gendered and condescending way. men are happy to leap on any new bandwagon that "allows" them to shit on women.
A bunch of these have been suggested before, Kyle, Ken, Matt, Brad, etc, it's not gonna stick anon. There are a ton of similar viral videos of angry men being assholes, but they get called out for their individual behavior and not reduced to some dumb stereotype.
Both men and women will laugh at "woman bad" jokes, but men will cry "not all men" if you talk about how old guys in Walmart will catcall a 12 year wearing shorts. The standards will never be the same.
I agree with this.
Blaming women for scrotes trying to weasel cheap dates and easy sex just sounds like internalized misogyny considering scrotes have been trying to do exactly that shit since the dawn of time. Except back then they were more liable to just rape you, considering you had way less rights and were literal property.

Personally, it's more obvious when they act like their generation is somehow superior to the current youngest generation, in the exact same way that their parents' generation did to them, and their grandparents' generation did to their parents, all the while not having the self-awareness to realize what they're doing is cyclical and that it's not an original thought, nor does it make them intelligent or unique. Today's youngest generation could genuinely, objectively improve if they end up being the first generation to not
treat the generation following them that way.
On that note, it's funny to see so many early gen-z's trying to convince themselves they're "totally not a zoomer, i'm a late millennial i swear!!! i remember vhs tapes!!" because they're scared of being called "zoomer" online. Fifteen to twenty years ago, when millennials were the youngest generation, being a part of that generation would've be considered just as uncool to gen-x's and to other millennials as being a gen-z is now.
You're blaming women though when you should be blaming men for behaviour you find undesirable. I kind of agree with >>680069
, it easily filters out guys who're only after sex if that's not what you're after yourself.>>680226
I used to think like this aswell, and I still agree. But I make my bed nowadays because it sets for a productive day and I feel better, especially now in lockdown, when my room's tidy.

NTA, but eugenic people have empathy. Dysgenic people don't, and that anon is one of many examples.
Strange irritation and/or hatred aimed at animals that are literally bred to be our companions is one of the major signs of a defective human.

Are you dumb? I saw so many people IRL, here, on Twitter, on other imageboards and Tumblr joke about killing themselves at 30. This screencap was pretty much everywhere.
In stark contrast, I literally never see young people talk about doing that. The closest is when they shit on boomers.
Right, because an animal that terrorizes other animals and humans, and the owner themselves, is totally displaying traits of companionship. These kinds of traits are what we should be encouraging, and that's why we train them INTO dogs and not out of them!>>680659
Why even ask such a redundant question? Obviously not, dogs bark and are allowed to do dog specific behaviors. """Reactive""" implies overly aggressive, unpredictable, maladaptive and inappropriately territorial.>>680654
These dogs are still being introduced to other dogs, the public, and no, not all of them are fixed/spayed. If they all were, how the fuck are there so many of them in shelters? How is that the shelters are constantly full and piling up if everyone is preemptively fixing these dogs? A great deal of them may be fixed after adoption, but do you think each dog has one puppy per liter? What about all of its siblings, the parents?
Samefagging because I also just had a flashback to this one girl being like "I'm no longer 16, meaning I'm closer to my 20s than I am to being 14. This is unacceptable" or something and people responding "Lol relatable".
Seriously, this is the shit that bugs me. Millenials keep acting brand new.
The internet is forever. The middle-ranging and youngest ones are just as cringy as zoomers, and the oldest millenials are literally the demographic responsible for current internet/pop culture, especially the cringy furry deviantART and weeb BS. Don't act like you forgot.

All the available comments in your lineup are about cosplay and sewing except one, which has no screencaps or receipts.
Either way, the jokes about aging and wanting to die definitely didn't originate with zoomers. That's you, and anyone can dig through your social media to prove it. Keep coping, though. Check the years on pic related, lmao.

Stopped dyeing my hair non-natural colors because it rendered my 1/3 of my wardrobe unwearable.
There's a reason why alt girls stick to black lmao.
Oh noooo anon. I'm an absolute sucker for split died blonde/black but I know I'll look like a fucking e-girl for sure.
Better than the tumblrette that I look like right now with my green hair. I have nothing to lose.you are right though, it looks ridiculous… but I just feel like… it's so cute
Lmao I agree. Besides clothes, you have to make sure your makeup matches too, or that you have makeup at all, or else you'll look kind of haggard in contrast to your high-maintenance hair. I stopped dyeing my hair the same reason as >>680725
idk where you're from but it's legally required for shelters/rescues here to sterilize their dogs before adopting them out
which seems like a better solution than hitlering a bunch of dogs you don't like
>>680727>split died blonde/black
imo this is the only good way to do it, split hair with unnatural colors like >>680719
never looks good
No no you’re thinking about it in the wrong way. It is easier than ever to weed out low value scrotes. Literally just don’t fuck them and demand that they seduce and court you. Let them know that you’re easily bored, hardly impressed and need them to prove that they can keep up with you. A man’s ego cannot handle being told that they can’t stimulate a woman. He will react in two ways: give up (the trash takes itself out) or he will do everything he can to “win” you as to keep his ego intact.
The male psyche is constant contradiction, they may fuck anything that moves but they LOVE a carrot on a stick. They may complain about how women are hard to get and how they wish for a simple low maintenance girl and how much they hate all the cock teasing but it’s all a massive cope. Men love the chase, they love working for what they think is worth it
. Simply by being the elusive one, they believe that you have something of worth more than women who kowtow to them. Always remember that.

But canned soup is delicious and practical.
definitely possible to do new versions of thanksgiving classics and an interesting spread; harder if you have picky relatives, a busy lifestyle, or no one to help you in the kitchen.
even a lot of people with really boring or nitpicky palates get excited to try interesting variations of old classics if they're not too strange and done well
if you do a smaller "friendsgiving" get together or have a little dinner with a partner or open minded immediate family, the sky is kind of the limit with trying new things. some people are dogmatic and unforgiving about holiday meal tradition, while some would find it novel and fun to do something like a wine and charcuterie/appetizers night, steak and seafood, cozy stew, or brunch instead of a big dinner that you've had for your entire life
it's also nice to be able to be more hands off about putting it together, and spending time relaxing and chatting instead of stressing over cooking all of these different mains and sides. i think this year is probably a good time to experiment with it however you'd like, everyone is a little stir crazy and might be more open to something new.
the stakes are also lower than with christmas so if it's a flop it's not a big deal
Why do people choose this time of year to make the shittiest opinions when one of their family members makes a shitty dish and they taste it?
That's like if I said "Video Games are HIGHLY overrated" and I've only played call of duty or something. Some doofus on reddit was like "Fried chicken is actually gross!!!" no man. The fried chicken YOU'VE eaten is gross.
I had been on a bit of a Monster kick for the last few months, my lil backwards country didn't even have alot of the different versions of it til lately… at first I thought they were all pretty good and now I'm already starting to hate some of them.
It's the zero sugar ones that I try to stick to (I'm too fond of caffeine already and I feel like adding sugar is a bad combo) so maybe it's the sweetners tasting off. The full surgar ones give me jitters so I can't win. Back to good ole reliable coffee.
Agree, carbonated drinks hurts my mouth. Don't like juice either, the only acceptable drinks are water, coffee and tea. >>681705
NTA but I'm a major sugar addict, it's just that sugary drinks
are not worth it because the taste is gone in a flash (which is probably why they're so addictive, it makes you wanna taste it longer…)
Are you fucking kidding? I thought my life was over when I turned 19 back in fucking 2013, it was extremely common to see girls on /cgl/ having crying fits about how dressing up or doing cosplay past the age of 21 was unacceptable.

Not sure if this is an unpopular opinion, but I'm pretty sure it is in leftist communities. Troons, e-thots, coomers, and genderspecials are fucking ruining anarchism. No, we don't support sw, because it's not essential to society. I'm not going to bake bread and grow potatoes for you, if all you "contribute" is nudes I'll never look at. And I don't really care if someone troons out or wants to be called they/them pronouns, but that's not an anarchist issue. Stop making a political movement that coincided with radical feminism about how you'll cry if someone calls you by the wrong pronouns. And please. Read the actual theory. >>682129

I tried to develop an appreciation for and understanding of (certain) contemporary art but all I got is that it's basically the result of an artist's contemplation about something and I'm supposed to care because instead of writing about it in their journal the artist decided to make a physical object for me to decrypt and I'm supposed to think that's great and valuable because it's ~deep~ and ~meaningful~
So I guess my unpopular opinion is that a lot of contemporary art is kind of stupid and made by self-absorbed individuals.
Nayrt but this is a good point. Also totally armchairing here but I think people go overboard because they’re so invested in image they want to see a big difference. A woman with mismatched thin lips often doesn’t want to get them evened out and slightly enlarged, she wants big juicy lips like she sees on women with totally different faces. Why pay hundreds of dollars for such small changes when you could transform yourself?
I think fillers likely look fine if they’re small and natural-looking adjustments, your post has made me curious about how many people I see with them done well.
I feel like the foundation of radical feminism and the ideas/principles are good and even liberating but in practice radfems take it too far and treat it like a religion and it ends up having the same consequences as following an actual religion like self hatred etc and it becomes the opposite of liberating.
Sorry if that didnt make sense, I'm really bad at formulating my thoughts.
File: 1606432246973.jpg (223.56 KB, 1600x1398, EfKU62D.jpg)
This is a pretty common opinion, anon.
Contemporary art is definitely polarizing (and can feed into money laundering and clout chasing and inflated egos yadadada) but it doesn't always have to be deep. Sure, there's artists who definitely have a specific message (like Dred Scott), but a lot of conceptual and abstract work is an attempt to capture a vibe or mood. Sometimes it's something as universal as "loneliness", but there's also artists who encapsulate the abstract vibe of having to eat microwavable waffles for an entire year in an effort to save money (and so they encase 365 waffles in resin or some shit). Some artists feel like the best way to conveying weird abstract feelings is with weird methods like that.
But yeah, specific emotions and understandings aren't universal so if you don't get it
, you don't get
it. That's not a bad thing. It's just you and the artist/work don't click.
Also a lot of stuff is just done for the aesthetic and craftmanship of it.
Your picture could be the result of someone going "woah, how would I go about wrapping a safety cone with fur in a seamless way", and not some ten page essay about how the fur industry needs to be shut down or whatever.
Sorry for the essay. I'm just sad that contemporary fine art is positioned as this impenetrable, pretentious ideology when so much of it is fun and sincere. The bigger issue is with art critics, collectors, and curators–they're the ones who really push the exclusivity.
Also that piece is ugly and I find nothing redeemable about it.
Every group has its rotten apples who take the ideology too far, I suggest you step off things like subreddits or whatever. I identify as a radfem but don't really hang around the communities because any
group based on some sort of an ideology is bound to become a cult. Radfems in particular host people who are recently disillusioned libfems and crossed to the other side to lick their wounds and are now sperging all over the place to get it off their system, but also people who have been traumatized and developed unhealthy copes to deal with it and have been reduced into seething black holes of hate. Feminism, whichever sect, evokes a lot of feelings in women because it's intertwined into our everyday lives and it brings out a lot of emotions.
NTA but while I feel a lot of abstract contemporary art is just money laundering I agree with the "if you don't get it, you don't get it" sentiment. Personally to me there are some pieces that really speak to me and someone else might not look twice at it or understand it at all. Feelings are hard to explain and sometimes you just understand what the artist was inspired by because you experienced something similar.
>I'm just sad that contemporary fine art is positioned as this impenetrable, pretentious ideology when so much of it is fun and sincere.
This I really agree about. I hate how art has been made into something exclusively for the artist scene itself when a lot of it would be perfectly accessible to a wider audience.
This is very succinctly written anon.
I'm happy being somewhere vaguely in the middle and this expresses my reasons for that very well.
This is very true. Honestly, I’m glad I managed to find a middle ground. I feel bad for anyone who is reduced to a black hole of hatred… been there, it isn’t a good way to live. >>682424
I agree. The general principles and foundations are good, but there’s so much nuance missing when certain things are being discussed. Especially when it comes to things that are not related to male violence. It took me so long to realize my female friends were toxic
and abusing me because I was always told they’d never hurt me. Sisterhood really ain’t all that it’s cracked up to be and healthy and supportive people in your life >>> sisterhood >>682415
This so much. There’s so much open racism, ableism, etc. that it’s ultimately divided and becomes a shadow of itself. The treatment of bisexual and straight women can be abysmal, especially if they have an opinion that doesn’t align with radical feminism even though it’s not a bad one to have.
As a radfem, I agree with many things you girls said but sadly that's just the fate of many online communities kek>feminism is a 1st world problem
However this never fails to piss me off. I come from a shithole, I'm poor as hell and the reason I consider myself a radfem is because I've had it much worse than many other women that live in countries that are better off. I've experienced and observed insanely shitty treatment of women and that's why my opinions are the way they are, not because I'm a bored rich white girl that has nothing to complain about. From my point of view, libfems are the ones that usually come from more privileged backgrounds because if they truly knew how bad women had it they wouldn't be so sw and tranny positive for example.
This "women in 3rd world countries know what true misogyny is!!" argument is absolutely unnecessary. Just because we don't get stoned for being raped or sold off to be child brides doesn't mean we don't experience misogyny and sexism that shouldn't be fixed. Women didn't have the right to vote until the early to mid 1900s depending on the country, weren't allowed to own private property or even bank accounts until maybe the 1960s. It's not like we've been considered human beings for ages at this point and despite all the laws made to protect us people still find ways to go around them and women are still earning less than men and getting absolutely screwed in divorce courts.
The evil blue haired feminists who seem to "blow shit out of proportion" probably would've been considered to do the same when they were demanding rape in marriage to be considered a crime in the 80s because "of course sex in marriage is always consensual". Women are still
being killed by their SOs at high numbers and are still
much more likely to die from partner abuse than men. Now that trannies are actually demanding to take over female seats in city councils like New York (it happened, google Emilia Decaudin) we're starting to regress again, which only signals that we must not ever lull ourselves into some false sense of security that "we don't need feminism in the first world anymore because I can drive a car and go outside without a male minder".
Thanks for posting this, I couldn't be bothered formulating an argument so I'm glad someone did. It's insulting and dangerous to act like women in 1st world countries aren't allowed to stand up for our rights just because we aren't suffering the worst of the worst misogyny. If we can't make progress with all our freedom and money, how the fuck will less developed countries? Feminism needs to grow in order to eventually gain more global influence, not get sidelined out of fear of seeming like an evil privileged ~white feminist~.
>We're starting to regress again, which only signals that we must not ever lull ourselves into some false sense of security t
Definitely. Feminism needs to be an ongoing, persistent effort because the more power we gain, the more men lose and the more backlash there is. You can't let up for a second or they'll do what they can to reverse it.
You missed my point entirely.
Liberal feminism is a first world thing and that everyone outside of America and Europe is by default a radical feminist, if they are a feminist at all, certain privileged groups notwithstanding. Therefore, being angry at radical feminists as a whole is stupid since it's the only legitimate kind of feminism there is in 2020 that fights for women's rights exclusively without pandering to men or corporations. If you are indeed upset with radical feminists for being "toxic
", then look abroad instead of writing things off based on how people in your neighbourhood act.
It has nothing to do with rich Western women not experiencing misogyny.
This reminds me of the time I was desperate for a job and applying for hundreds. Employment in the area was really low and 100+ people would apply for a cleaning job. I got a call back from a ‘marketing agency’ and asked to come in for an interview. The interviewer was wearing a flashy suit and took me out to a hipster cafe to chat. After a load of business-speak crap he told me the role was knocking on people’s doors and getting them to sign up for charity donations.
“So it’s minimum wage?”
“No, you only get paid for commissions, but you can easily sign up 4 people an hour and earn £XX”
“Is that… legal?”
“Haha yeah! You’d be freelance, you just have to pay an accountant £100 every tax year to sort out your taxes”
“So… I’d be working for myself?”
“Why am I at a job interview then?”
I was desperate for a job but even I had to say no to that shit.>>682555
I disagree with the method entirely but the rationale is that they don’t get enough through random donations. People often will throw some change in a charity tin or round up the payment on a card machine but that’s nothing compared to donating $50 a month. The aggressive tactics are because genuine charity workers shaking buckets are often ignored (and they have less motivation if they’re not earning a commission). The aim is that you will sign up and forget about the direct debit, though I would argue that most people would cancel it straightaway after such an unpleasant encounter.
No. According to studies and statistics women are more likely to lose their quality of life after divorce. They're the ones who usually have to sacrifice their career and income to take care of the kids, and the legal fees in divorce court cuts them a lot deeper than the husband. And because women are often given the custody of the kids (because in most cases the men don't want sole custody) they'll have to support them on a single person's income. A lot of them are also divorcing because of an abusive
husband and struggle with mental health issues caused by the relationship and are more likely unable to work. https://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2016/04/the-divorce-gap/480333/>Despite the common perception that women make out better than men in divorce proceedings, women who worked before, during, or after their marriages see a 20 percent decline in income when their marriages end, according to Stephen Jenkins, a professor at the London School of Economics. His research found that men, meanwhile, tend to see their incomes rise more than 30 percent post-divorce. Meanwhile, the poverty rate for separated women is 27 percent, nearly triple the figure for separated men.
And here's a good article summarizing how women get screwed over in divorce court because their allegations of being raped or abused in marriage aren't taken seriously: https://www.theguardian.com/society/commentisfree/2020/mar/05/family-courts-biased-men-dangerous-fallacy-abuse
There are plenty of resources regarding the subject, try reading something else than MRA reddits fantasizing about being cucked out of their wealth by gold diggers.
>>682391>the ideology has caused me so much pain, internalized hatred, self-harm, suicidal tendencies, etc.
wtf anon, have you considered that it may be a you problem instead of a radfem problem? How can radical feminism make you selfharm and interalize hatred? At it's core, it's about embracing how wonderful women are and fighting for their rights. Is it the 'men hate us and there is so much misogyny in the world' part that made you suicidal?>you encounter the misogynistic and victim-blaming radfems who are no better than incels
what kind of radfems have you met, wtf
I'm from 3rd world and poor and social anxiety made my life so much harder. Even though there are comics that make it look cute and quirky, it doesn't change the fact that a good amount of people suffer from it and no matter how much they try, it doesn't improve at all.
Also, this is far from being an unpopular opinion so go fuck yourself.
Yes, and if you tell anyone you think this way they’ll think you are somehow defective or jealous.
I also find the obsession with weddings bizarre.
According to a friend who lived in India, many feminists were against non-gendered rape laws and actively fought against men being able to be victims
of rape. However, the laws they have basically only cover male-on-female rape which basically means female rapists can get off the hook and their victims
get no recourse. Similarly, in some SK boards, female pedophiles are regularly encouraged and defended and some Asian countries have similarly gendered rape laws.
It isn't just about rich western women. Sometimes it's about genuine issues that should be addressed but instead are lost in some power struggle or justification for doing/saying some actually fucked up shit and hypocrisy and it goes unaddressed.

I really hate people who make fun of phobias or try to "joke" or "prank" people who have certain phobias. Arachnophbia is what i have, and it boils my blood whenever someone in my family or a random stranger just tells me "oh they are more scared of you than you are of them" or they show me pictures of spiders which gives me alot of anxiety.
I do not get people pranking other people who have phobias and thinking its funny when they are literally inducing anxiety and panic attacks onto those people. It's just disrespectful and honestly makes them look like unempathetic assholes.
How many of those male rape victims
had acid thrown in their faces? How many of them were gangbanged and killed? How many of the perpetrators were women? Is your friend a rich girl from Mumbai who posts #BLM in her insta story but looks down on girls darker skinned than her? She had money to emigrate so she's certainly not from a lower class.
The reason feminism, and especially radical feminism, exists is so women have a voice and can fight for rights and justice they do not have. Men's issues are not relevant to women or feminism because they do not affect women. Men have all the power so they should expend some of that to condemn female rapists if it truly is such a problem.
It isn't just about rich western women, you're right. It's about rich women (the privileged minorities I mentioned) overall. Nobody addresses these things because these people have wealth and power to defend themselves.
Because I had been told that I was awful, that I deserved to be abused, that I deserved to be raped, etc. because of my interest in BDSM and attraction to men. I've repeatedly been told that it was my fault if a woman got raped because I wasn't staunchly against BDSM or sex work between consenting adults. I've met and read about radfems who've raped other women and have preyed on minors and children. In fact, even when I tried to come out about my abuse at the hands of a female peer, I had been told that it was no big deal, that I deserved it, etc. because of her justifications for abusing me. And many of this when I was still a child myself.
Even now in non-anon places like Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit, etc., or hell, even other image boards, I've been told female on female rape "isn't that bad" because there is no risk of pregnancy. I've gotten messages on tumblr from radfems saying that I (and other women) who decide to participate in BDSM or sex work deserve to be raped, beaten, etc. I've gotten and have seen messages from other radfems saying bisexual women are just straight women and deserve to be abused for being in relationships with men because "all men are abusive
" and if you decide to be in a relationship with one, there's no way you couldn't have wanted or seen the abuse coming. Then you have the ones who justify mothers abusing their female daughters because of the "pain of womanhood" or that "it's the mans fault" when a woman kills or abuses her own children and the absolute disregard for people with abusive
It is legitimately no better than an incel especially when other radfems see, reblog, etc., and don't even bother calling out the fact that another radfem said that a woman deserved to be raped or beaten because of participating in sex work or BDSM. At most, I've gotten a "Well /I/ didn't say it and I don't agree with them." but then they go right back to agreeing with the person.
Yes, at its core it may be about accepting women and fighting for their rights. But the core of almost any ideology is good on paper. When toxic
and vile things within an ideology go unchallenged beyond "well I don't agree", "Well they aren't an actual xyz", etc. it taints it.
So to answer your question, yes I have considered that it may just be a "me" problem because I had been told repeatedly that I deserved to be abused, raped, to kill myself, etc. by the same radfems who said they were fighting for my rights as a woman and that I was obligated to fight alongside them. Obligatory "not all" but just like when it comes to men, if there are "just enough" to justify hating them, it's the same for many radical feminists and women. There are "just enough" to where the ideology can be considered toxic
when it becomes more about justifying being awful rather than leveling the playing field and maintaining rights for women.
She isn't and you don't exactly have to be rich or privileged to emigrate to a different country. Illegal immigrants are still a thing.
Also, I didn't specify whether the victim
was a male or not. I said female rapists.
of rape should be protected but just because you may not have acid thrown in your face or killed doesn't mean you are any less a victim
of rape. Women can rape other women– one of the biggest flaws in gendered rape laws. Raping someone or pedophilia should be in no way defendable, excusable, or justifiable. That should not be a controversial statement.
I was married for about 5 years, never changed my name. (It's something you have to file totally separate paperwork to do) .. Taxes were better and best of all I got to be on his health insurance while I went to school full-time. It was an equal partnership, neither of us was "subservient" to the other.
Not to say some people don't end up in unequal marriages. I feel for those women, but I don't think it really has anything to do with marriage itself.
Nta but I’ve also seen the victim
blaming thing for choosing to be in a relationship with a man from radfems. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve met some really cool and level headed ones but there are a couple out there who do start to sound like incels when talking about other women’s choices.
Diff anon but yeah scrotes love to power trip whenever you have a certain phobia and they are so cool and brave for just not having the same phobia. My last ex would sit there while I begged him to just sort out a spider for me… insisting that we leave the spider there. I would say if you don't want to kill it that's fine but can you please just catch it and put it outside for me? Nope.
Well he was shit scared of wasps and when wasps came in the window we didn't just let them find their own way back out… no suddenly I was expected to deal with it on his behalf while he ran and hid in another room. No irony there lol
tbf marriage is nothing more than a legal contract which is especially good if you have or plan to have assets or children together.
but that sounds more like an issue with the person or people involved rather than marriage if it legally binds you into or you view it as subservience. That, and the good thing is if anything happens to you or your partner, you are effectively the next of kin which is useful if either of you has toxic
parents and families.
Anon you replied to. Thank you for the explanation and I am so sorry for your horrible experiences with radfems.
I guess I was extremely luck to not ran into this kind of women… though I did see some lesfem talk shit about 'bihets'. Absolutely horrible, especially since they are preaching about ~sisterhood uwu~ while treating women that are not politically pure enough for them like shit.
It fucking sucks because this is why we will never get shit done. We (women) infight among each other instead of focusing on the real enemy and leaving the rest of shit to sort itself out.
Yeah I got over my own anxiety with time and practice, I didn't need a therapist, I just needed to not be around my abusive
family that would yell at me and insult me for just saying hello to the neighbors and that forced me to be a shut-in until university. I have a friend who's still like this but way worse and everytime there's an opportunity to get over it she finds pretexts to not participate in social events, she became more and more of a shut-in out of choice and I bet the mere fact that she had to make constant phone calls during her internship made her refuse to stay in the company even though it was an amazing opportunity that other people would have killed for. I related to her at first but now I can't at all.
Some of this was irl and other parts were places like tumblr, twitter, reddit, Asian image boards, etc. It can happen on any social media or in any group really. There isn't really a kind of "group" you should avoid but really just keep an eye out for in general toxic
people and just stay 10 feet away from them. There's a bunch on tumblr about radfems who defend women who "slept with" underage male students by citing that the male student had power over them and I have been cursed enough to have had to read the terms "consensual pedophilia" in defense of a woman who slept with her underage student.
When they want you to respect their beliefs but they won't respect your lack of beliefs.. cool.
I had a childhood of forced mass and as a kid with anxiety from a young age everything church related spooked the hell out of me and I cried and fought to try and get out of being in that building where the statues all looked possessed and the priest kept talking about 'a presence being with us' lol. Looking back I could never fight that pointless fight with a distressed kid.
What's the typical thing they're trying to fund?
Those examples where people are like 'help out a bpd, non binary, neurodivergent person in need of rent money' They put me off. I have my own disabilities too but just say that you need rent money without having to tick a bunch of those pity boxes.
Lately, lol? They were always here, and they always get easily triggered
. Their most massive trigger
is when people in the COVID thread talk about obesity being the prime factor in covid mortality. They always go nuts at that.
>>682942>how I hate when fat women complain about the fashion industry when they have way more variety and choice tha I ever will
Because fat women shockingly don't all share the same bodies either, and the reason why they have the options they do is that they lobbied together for it for decades despite people in the industry screeching at and belittling them for existing.
Anyway don't mind me with these pesky facts. Let's get back to the thin persecution.
Nta, agree though. People who bitch about ‘sob stories’ don’t understand that it’s someone’s life, it’s not a story. Of course no one’s going to give money to someone who just asks for it with no explanation, but maybe they will donate to someone who explains they have a serious illness and insurance does not cover treatment.
I do wish there was a way for it to be regulated to stop scammers.
Idk I looked at her "before" pictures. I could see how she's Midwest US pretty. I looked it up and she's from Riverside, so pretty much the same thing. Imo most ecelebs are unremarkable or ugly (mostly the men are ugly). >>682385
I mostly talk to post-leftists and egocoms/anarcho-egoists about politics. I don't totally agree with ethical egoism, but they might be a fresh of breath air for you. Egoism deters the woke twitter crowd.

I’m Asian and I’m neutral about fat people, except for fat Asians. In a population that is largely healthy weight, any Asians who manage to get obese (not just overweight) are particularly pitiful in my eyes. I don’t see it as a moral failing tho, mental illness is probably a factor.

They're probably doing it as a fetish anyway. Also I can't see how you can be surprised. With so many shut-ins and possible food delivery and NEETS that live with their parents (I know one of them), how do you think it happens?
Kinda similar to this, there's a few charity shops (thrift stores?) in my area and now that bin collection services are expensive and household waste is charged by the kilo… people are putting the nastiest trash items out in front of the charity shops thinking they'll somehow want them or be able to sell them on.
Now that the charity shops are closed with covid people are still dumping that stuff out front..in the rain in front of a closed store. I'm cheap AF myself but I don't act shitty just to save a few quid.
Yes a lot of people think she had no right to be upset and that it's normal and cool. I wish elle had shown more sympathy to her, it ruined the movie for me.
Killing is wrong obviously, but if she made her dads life hell for it i'd support her.
Selling is actually the best way to discard of clothes which are still wearable. It ensures that the items are going to people who want them rather than throwing them into the void.
Charity shops are generally overwhelmed by donations so the shit-tier brands often go straight in the recycling bin except if they’re BNWT. Recycling is obviously good but the literal pennies charities earn per sack isn’t worth the time or effort. They largely only do it because it would cost money to dump shit, and probably for eco brownie points too.
It’s better for everyone to sell your shit. If you don’t want the few quid, you could give that to charity.
NTA but everything in charity bins where I live goes straight to the landfill. Most charities, as anons above pointed out, don't need outdated fast fashion rags or things that look like something chewed on them. They're already receiving too much worthless stuff. They have now started issuing lists of acceptable brands and straight up saying all the other clothes are worthless.
People keep buying clothes from H&M and "giving them away to charity" after one season to assuage their guilt, only to replace them with more H&M tripe they'll "give away to charity" once they're done. If you don't wanna wear your ratty old t shirt, what makes you think someone else will?
And a lot of donated clothes are sold in bulk and exported to third world countries. It ends up fucking up local economies by the lower price point pushing local textile workers out of business.
Additionally, it makes me wonder how much of a carbon footprint and used resources come from shipping containers, of what could
be essentially value-less polyester rags, all over the globe.
I don't really see a good solution to the abundance of second-hand clothes. Donating, reselling, throwing away all create problems one way or another. Really, the real root of the problem is fast fashion and hyper-consumerism. People just need to stop buying shit.Fuck, everything we do contributes to a fucked up system.
