Is it a bad idea to make a body-positive thread on /g/? I know hamplanets have taken over the body positivity movement but I was sorta thinking about making a thread about learning to accept certain features that you have, sorta like the 'coping with being ugly' thread but more about emotional growth

recently I've been learning to accept certain facial flaws that I had, like my nose and my stretch marks which were, in hindsight, nowhere near as bad I was making them out to be

I'm paralyzed and I can't study because I realized I will probably only make 3k/month 36k/year max my whole life. Isn't it better just to be a neet and leeching instead of being a mortgage slave and bullied at work?

So I met this scrote on tinder a week ago and before we had sex, he always texted me fast etc then after he started ignoring them giving me one word replies. So, I blocked him. I feel like it was an over reaction but I'm not asking for money, not asking for a relationship, all I wanted was a few texts a day just to feel like I exist to someone and he couldnt even do that. Was I being dumb?

In all seriousness, danganronpa characters emote a lot and are exaggerated tropes with easy to follow backstories, pretty easy for a teenager to feel identified into, plus it has some funny angst going on and the style is very colorful and out there

I don’t know the reasons and it’s probably specific to your situation but stop it by not falling for the bait. Grey rock method. Not responding at all is best, but if for whatever reason you do then just be really boring and neutral. “Ok, I understand why you feel that way” and so on. Don’t give them the reaction they want.

Don't leech off your parents. It's unfair to them to do that. At a certain point parents aren't supposed to care for you full-time, atleast imo.

Maybe you could just work and rely on your parents for stuff like housing? You could pay for groceries or maybe pay "rent" so that way you're still contributing. I'm pretty sure you could still get gov assistance (depending on where you live obviously) if you're living with your parents.

idk anon, that's how i feel about it. to be an adult who can't take care of themselves is shameful, i think. to tell someone that i don't have a job or an education and live with my parents still would be mortifying.

Call the last hospital that you had a visit or regular visits with and talk to their medical records department. They’ll have you sign an ROI and fax or mail them to you, most likely.

How can I become smarter anons? Yes I am genuinely asking this question. I'm not a moron, but now I'm approaching my mid-20s, I feel significantly behind my colleagues in general intelligence. So many of my friends will enter conversations or debates on politics, history, technology and social dynamics and not only do I have nothing to add, I can barely keep up with what they're talking about. They use complicated (to me) words and concepts effortlessly and I'm so envious of them, I want to be able to communicate at that level. I've started reading recently (literally never read as a past-time before) and I'm constantly googling words I have no understanding of, but I worry I'm not going to retain any of that.

Should I study? Where do I start? Any resources? I just feel so overwhelmed because the gap between my intelligence and seemingly everyone else I meet feels huge. I want to improve myself in this way but have no idea how to best approach it. Why didn't I pay more attention in school?!

Reading will help, also keep up to date with the news, even read the lifestyle parts of newspapers. My best advice is to pay attention to things around you, make mental notes (or even on your phone) to research something you’re ignorant about later. Be curious about shit - why is it like that? How does it work? What’s the history? Etc.

For words, maybe write them in a notebook and look over them 10 minutes a day, or make flash cards like you would when learning a foreign language. Incorporate them into your speech and you won’t forget.

Keep in mind you’re not stupid, you’re just ignorant. That can be fixed. Also be aware that when you know fuck all about a subject, even a person with a very basic knowledge would seem like an expert. Maybe your colleagues/friends are super smart, maybe they are just good at pretending.

No. 679563

Respectfully, this has been explained numerous times now. Even in the latest townhall, admin mentioned that the MtF and FtM threads are meant to act as containment threads of sorts for any discussions about trans people. She stated that it's off limits in places like /ot/ because it has the potential to devolve into infighting.

No. 679582

>>679563
Well, then admin better update the rules then. Whining about forbidden topics in meta isn't exactly making it clear whats allowed or not.

And we have infighting over literally anything, so its a bad argument. Might as well ban all discussions about everything then if thats the reason. I'll even go as far as saying that hating trans people is the one thing we can all agree on here.

Right because often times anyone who supports trans people are instantly called slurs, bait, or handmaidens.

This site isn't exclusively gc. Anons expressing support for trans IS allowed, but you'll get banned if you start infighting whether or not you're gc. The arguments are usually 1 or 2 anons saying they support trans people, and then a bunch of gc anons coming in to argue with them about it. Basically, the gc anons outnumber the tra anons, so If people could have a discussion about trans rights or whatever without derailing then gc anons probably wouldn't have got banned in /ot/. i feel like i said gc a thousand times

Can someone explain to me what is a anti and anti-anti? My knowledge is someone who disagree of someone works right? While I agree that people can criticize pretty much everything whatever they want.

I think anti anti are people who are completely for fictional depictions of things that are objectively horrific.

i mostly see it used in the context of shipping characters. "antis" are against ships that include stuff like age gaps, incest, and pretty much anything that's illegal/immoral irl and "anti antis" are of the opinion that all ships are okay as long as they're not real
i'm not really bothered by either idea but there's a lot of retardation from both sides and it seems like every other day someone from either side gets called out for being a pedo/zoophile or some other flavor of degenerate, it's not a rabbit hole worth going down imo.

If you mean in the Twitter/fandom sense, an “anti” is typically someone who is anti-“problematic shipping” aka someone who’s hyper PC and against age gap/incest/rape/abuse/dubcon/underage/power difference or anything that could even be mildly misconstrued as one of these, in relation to fictional characters and their related fan works. They’re usually sheltered teens who love to dog pile and spam death threats over this trivial shit.

An “anti-anti” is just the opposite of this, although more commonly I see people saying “pro-shipper”. I should mention that I’m someone who thinks fiction and reality are completely separate, with only autists confusing the two, so my explanation is probably skewed in that direction.

I'm off ssri's. I'm bipolar and they basically stopped working as well and made me want to vomit by the time I was done with them. I've felt better without them, a little more emotional, but they actually made me feel far more deadened and emotionless. which I hated because I felt like this fucked robot shell of a human. being on only a mood stabilizer that doubles as an antidepressant has been a vast improvement. it was a weird change at first but it was a welcome one and I'd rather be off them than on them. I feel like ssri's really are not for everyone and I wish therapists would stop trying to put everyone on them

I think it depends on the type of work you do. If It’s office work and you spend the day sitting on a desk without interacting with any clients, I think anything that isn’t too damaged is okay, if it’s formal that’s a plus.
If you have to interact with customers you might want to have at least three pairs of shoes so you can rotate them during the week, some people care, most don’t give a fuck while buying stuff.

Just by virtue of you asking these questions and seeking out new experience, you are demonstrating the classic sign of general intelligence - novelty seeking! Always be open and ready to absorb like a sponge. As anons mentioned, reading will undoubtedly help you get a leg up in "intellectual" conversations but that can be a bit of a time investment.

It's a bit lower effort but documentaries can provide a wealth of information of politics, history, technology, sociology, etc. You can find so many free ones on YouTube! Maybe start with docs from classic sources like Frontline or NOVA.

Another tip is to always keep closed captioning on so when you hear an unfamiliar word you can visually see it written out, in context, and thus it's easier to integrate into your own vocabulary. I always have captions on, also helps if you miss words form mumbling and I think it helps you gain greater comprehension of the dialogue.

Yarn size makes it easier/harder, depending on the project. The needle size and type of yarn can kind of conflict too, and sometimes I've found it frustrating as balls to wiggle into a hole without accidentally putting part of a strand of another stitch in there. There's also making sure that you stay really consistent with your stitch size, meaning you need to micromanage how tight or loose you're making every stitch. Also, counting your stitches. Stay on top of your shit with this, or you can fuck up a project and make yourself wanna sit in a corner and die because you had to go back a bunch.

Humans are social creatures; most people have desperately tried to conform throughout history for self-preservation. Equally, the majority have been suspicious of people who act ‘different’ as it can be seen as a risk to the group. Those instincts don’t just go away even if we’re past burning witches. It’s beneficial to everyone involved to appear ‘normal’.

Also, a lot of normies I know do have niche interests and hobbies. It’s just not something that comes up in conversation as often as “do you watch [popular TV show]?” because they’re much less likely to find someone who wants to listen to that shit, much less has the same interest. When you’re a normie and want to fit in, you’re going to make yourself likeable by chatting about shit that most people care about.

You can approach this from a number of ways, but the ones I recommend are either make them feel stupid or simply tune them out. Regardless, they're already coming at you with a huge ego, so you're probably not going to be able to dismantle it from one interaction. Instead, use the opportunity to make them feel unheard/misunderstood. They're really not worth your effort and you gotta save your energy for people who actually know how to have a good conversation that doesn't demean you.

How can they know for sure that you won't? You might stop to tie your shoelace, you might drop something, you might misjudge where they are and try to get out of their way in the wrong direction. Being offended by such a normal, well established precaution that exists partially for your safety is just retarded.

Everyone knows to walk only on the right side and not to randomly stop on the trail. It would make sense for them to ring their bell if I was in their way or I stopped or was walking on the left side but I never do. Especially not on a trail other people are riding bikes on. Most of the people who pass me on bikes don't say anything or ring their bell. Only a few feel the need to open their mouths and hear themselves.

Has anyone else noticed how hard men fall off looks wise in their early to mid 20s? I'm starting to think that a lot of men 'peaked' in high school physically and that men are generally probably most physically attractive right out of high school and early college. Every guy that I check out (face wise but also not obese) is always around 18-20 years old and there's a stark difference between their looks and the guys who are older than me (22). Every once in a while there's an older guy who's a looker and obviously takes care of himself but I think aging in the 20s must hit men hard or something. I have no idea what caused this (partying, stress, bad habits) but every guy that I've gone to high school with except for maybe a handful looks way worse than before. I know this sounds ridiculous because we're only just out of college and most people say men are most attractive in their 20s as well. But in my experience, it's all receding hairlines, fat 'dad bods', and formerly cute faces that just look unmasculine and unattractive. Maybe they use age as an excuse to look haggard, idk.

Agree that TV show is fake as fuck but it probably mainly happens to kids and naive/lonely people in the really dumb cases. In the majority of cases it’s probably more subtle as most people don’t accept the “my webcam doesn’t work” excuse now. Still plenty of shit to easily lie about and probably get away with unless they’re claiming to be a billionaire/celebrity/famous surgeon. Webcams are still kinda blurry and can knock off a few years. They could lie about their family situation, relationship/lack of, their history, job, education, achievements, living situation, sex they were born as. So much shit as long as they don’t go overboard.

If we ignore the lack of skin care factor, I think it depends on their face structure. Most male faces I see are so dumpy, doughy, potatoish and featureless that once they gain a bit of weight that usually comes with age and lack of care they start to look so ugly and shapeless. Usually men with stronger features (sharp big noses, big eyes, skinny face, sharper jawlines, higher cheekbones etc.) look more appealing to me as they age because they don't turn into a shapeless, bloated blob. Alcohol probably plays a big factor because it really does bloat you up, and we all know most guys love to drink.

I don't want to ask this to someone irl so I'm asking here. One side of my chin is less voluminous than the other side (roughly where to red circles are in pic). It's like there's more fat/tissue underneath the skin on one side than the other, I can feel it too when I put my fingers on my chin. It's super obvious to me and I think it makes my face look wonky, it's bothering me so much that I've had the thought of getting it corrected. But then again I'm staring at my face in the mirror while others don't and see my face in motion. Do you think this is obvious to people around me or am I the only one who really notices?

I'm just disappointed because I definitely had a HUGE glow up in my late teens to early 20s and I expected dating in my 20s would be better since men would be more mature. So while I (and most other women) are pretty attractive (6/10-9/10 range), the men that are supposed to be our dating pool are like 4/10 face wise. Not to mention the hairlines and their bodies. It's so bad that some of the men that I'd consider to be in my league are actually male models (lesser known ones ofc and it's because the standards for men are so so low) but I don't wanna fuck with that because all men are incredibly egotistical by default, just imagine how bad a man who's told he's hot for a living would be.

I don't really have anywhere else to ask this question so I guess I'll just ask here. I've recently come into some money (around 10k sterling) and I've been thinking about running away. Due to severe family troubles and other things I don't want to elaborate on here I've been pretty miserable for a while and I don't think anything good will result if I continue this way.

You are.

Move to a different part of your country if you must, find a cozy place to live and a job you like well enough. Use the rest of your money to travel.

Moving to a different country is a huge pain in the ass and you'll lose your entire inheritance just getting the right permits and paperwork, that's not even taking into consideration learning a different language and being completely cut off from people you know. You're on lolcow so I'm guessing you're not the most extroverted person out there, and making friends will be even harder with a language barrier and the fact that you're foreign.

I know you didn't ask but technically it's *strangulation since choking is a blockage inside of your throat. Of course "strangulation" sounds terrible so the depraved kinksters have to refer to it incorrectly so that fewer people question their perfectly healthy, sane, consensual, loving, ethical, sex positive kinks.

Euro anons, how safe am I as a female burgerfag living abroad on my own in the EU (and UK) for a year (or two?) for a masters? I'm looking at schools to apply to and have seen options in the following countries. I am applying to schools in the US as well but the EU has cheaper options by far. I don't plan on working in that country, just getting my masters and going back to the US. So I have no idea which options are the best and which countries should be an absolute no. Some have multiple schools and others only have one (Norway for instance).
- France (ISIL attacks are bad here)
- Germany
- Spain
- Netherlands (has a bunch of options)
- Poland
- Belgium
- Czech Republic
- UK
- Portugal
- Norway
I've lived on my own in undergrad but I'm anxious about the presence of ISIL. Ik as a burgerfag we have shootings all the time but our attacks are rarely as sophisticated in planning as the ones that have happened in Europe.

How the fuck does one write like an adult?
In school we learned cursive, but after elementary school most girls started writing in print(?)like. I tried a few times to write like them, but I'm slower than a turtle and it looks like shit.. Cursive feels more natural and a lot faster to me, but most women (and some nerdy guys) I know write quickly in that nice print like caligraphy and I feel like a dumb hick. When it's to fill small forms I try to write print, but if it's more than a line it takes fucking forever. I can't fucking imagine writing notes and exams in that way, I tried practicing during the summer but it's so fucking impratical.

In my limited experience Portugal and Spain are safe (Portugal a bit more than Spain, but maybe that's about the numbers). I also felt safe (and heard good things about) in Germany, but it was before the mass immigration.

ISIL shouldn’t be a major concern about going to France. Some of the attacks were awful but in the past 4+ years they’ve killed a handful of people at most. Half the time they are directly targeting the police, so not a concern for you. Honestly I wouldn’t even think about ISIL.

Keep in mind the U.K. generally offers 1 year MAs compared to the European 2 year. Idk if this will be a problem in the USA but in Europe a U.K. MA can be considered lesser. If finances are an issue, the U.K. is also pretty expensive for living costs as is Norway, idk about elsewhere.

If you’re monolingual then the U.K. and Netherlands are good choices. The other languages are relatively easy to learn some of but Czech/Polish would be harder. If safety is a major concern for you then learning to communicate as well as possible should be a priority.

Of course safety varies from city to city so keep that in mind. Generally all the places you’ve mentioned are among the safest countries in the world, you’re only questioning it because you’re not a native. It’s understandable but keep in mind websites and people will flag up any risks no matter how unlikely they are to actually happen.

You do realize that you're only hurting yourself and other women by doing that, right? You'll never be a man or even genderless. Pretending that you are something else because you hate the stereotypes associated with being a woman only further serve to paint women in a negative light.

Wrong. You can't win, because it's not something you can renounce, you can just look like a clockable cringe machine of a fakeboi and it still won't stop people from discriminating against you. Do you think a rapist will ask for your pronouns before they decide to rape you? Do you think girls in third world countries can identify their way out of breast ironing and FGM?

If you ignore the problems and let them get bigger instead of actively fighting against the oppression you already face, you'll be losing the hardest.

Even when I was a teenager and malnourished and underweight from extreme picky eating, again sensory issues, the doctor had the gall to look im my face and tell me I was lying and I was just anorexic and to get psyhcological help, when explicitly said I didn't like being so underweight, that my problems with food were extremely distressing and even if i wanted to eat I couldn't bear with textures and smells of food, texbook austist.

I was so unfeminine and unattractive (fat teen) growing up, that I fortunately never really experienced too much of that pushy creepy men bullshit. So when every now and then someone makes like a remark about me being a woman, my internal reflex is "fuck you, don't play that shit with ME". But most women could do without people pointing out that they're a woman in a men's space or that they're only getting nice treatment because they're a lady.

While this is true, putting they/them in your twitter bio doesn't really make the society see you as "not woman".

It's not feminism of any kind, it's just being pragmatic. You can stamp your feet about how males should be civilized and about how the problem shouldn't exist, but fact of the matter is that they aren't and it does. Denial doesn't solve the problem.

Idk, prostitutes could easily be abused by this. There's already tons of abuse in the sex industry, and it really won't be different here. Plus, if this is real, then I doubt they're like, government provided prostitutes. I think this is literally just giving them money to go out and find prostitutes, and like I said, there's bound to be abuse there.

I'm not necessarily against sex-workers, but it's important to remember they're not all girls making videos on onlyfans. A lot of them are women being abused by pimps, getting raped, addicted to drugs, underage, csa survivors, etc…

I agree with the other anon who said to just give them sex toys. Plus, I don't think a that many women want to have sex with disabled men.

>"The Green party’s spokeswoman for age and care policy, Elisabeth Scharfenberg, said the government could “provide grants” for sexual services to disabled people who cannot achieve satisfaction by any other means.


>Such a system is currently operating in Denmark and the Netherlands, where certified “sexual assistants” with special training conduct visits to disabled people who cannot afford to pay themselves."

It only solidifies the belief that women's literal bodies and sexuality are commodities to be moderated and paid for by the government to have them serve the literal lowest caliber of men who, again, are so disabled that they'd apparently be incapable of getting their own privately.

But sure, SiS, cater to male coomerism in the name of keeping the world safe from rape and murder at the expense of prostitutes because men cumming is more important than women's dignity or exploitation.

Is "social anxiety" just the new blanket excuse for men to get out of shopping? Past few boyfriends and current absolutely loathe the type of shopping women traditionally do (food, clothes, gifts, etc.). Some claim "social anxiety" to act withdrawn, aloof, and unapproachable inside stores–with the added effect of me wanting to do shopping quicker because they're acting so put out, which serves their interest ofc. I hear men complain that women take too long and ponder too many decisions. Yet they go fucking wild when it's shopping they want to enjoy like games, hobbies and other things on their terms. Smaller niche shops for games tend to be so claustrophobic and filled with people even worse. So "social anxiety" seems like some bullshit. Plenty of men take their time researching and examining the options when it's shit they actually want.

Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this excuse-making from boyfriends, friends, or family members in general.

So uhh a moid I fucked once worked as a social worker with heavily autistic clients such as these and told me they get to have sex with a trained sex worker 1-2 times a year as a special occasion. Apparently it's also supposed to prevent them from sexually assaulting people. I mean, I guess if that helps setting clear boundaries that's good. Fun pillow talk!

I've been lucky enough with bfs, always did the food shopping as a couple. Would go around shopping centres and try and allow each time to look at our seperate interests. Might split up to look in different stores or might agree to accompany each other and just be patient with it.

The grocery store I shop in always has husbands waiting in cars though and it's strange to me… I mean they're eating the food too, wouldn't you want to browse and see what's new?

Severely autistic men sexually assaulting their female caretakers and relatives is extremely common. I watched an interview with a woman who got some media attenton because of being kicked out of their home because of her autistic son, and she was very honest about planning to put her son into an institution in a few years, because she won't physically be able to hold him off, and the chances of him molesting her are very high.

Still, I'ma bit skeptical that just having 1-2 sexual sessions with a prostitute will really help or teach anything to these men.

But for most men it's simply "it's my wife's job, I will only be the driver, why does she take so long, I'm bored and I wannago home" instead of parttaking in their family's life. And then you get all these men that can't go grocery shopping without having their wives on the phone directing them and have no idea what size of shirt they even need to buy for themselves.

Yeah, I'm highly doubtful once or twice a year is enough to curb sexual need. I could have been wrong but I got the sense they were being taught these times are like a special occasion sort of thing so that they won't seek it out outside of these few times the sex workers are hired for them.

There's an enormous taboo in acknowledging that disabled people have sexual needs as well and get touch starved just as non disableds do. I'm not saying intimacy is a right but… there's more care involved in the process than you'd probably think.

Have you seen the movie 37 seconds? There's a scene where the main protagonist (who has cerebral palsy) goes through a lot of trouble to find a male escort and when she finally finds one the escort is visibly disgusted with her. His reaction to her is completely dehumanizing. It's very saddening.

The reason why prostitution is banned in a lot of countries to begin with is that when you legalize it, it's much harder to differentiate legal sex work from illegal human trafficking. Think about all the bootleg products you see being sold cheap, some of them are made so good that an untrained eye wouldn't be able to tell them apart. That's basically what would happen with legalized prostitution. The pimps would just tell the officials that their prostitutes are doing it out of their free will and that their services are 100% legal while threatening the women into silence. Or they would act from the shadows and make the woman lie that she's not being pimped but doing this alone instead. Or an underage girl could be made to lie that she's a legal adult and allowed to do this. Even when talking about Netherlands a study concluded that their "legal" brothels still are used for human trafficking. https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10611-013-9512-4

>The main conclusion is that the screening of brothel owners and the monitoring of the compliance of licensing conditions do not create levels of transparency that enable sex trafficking to be exposed. The prostitution business retains many characteristics of an illegitimate market and the legalization and regulation of the prostitution sector has not driven out organized crime

Nta, but I think we all can recognize that some disabled people are regular people with emotions and needs. However that's not something that can be provided by the government. Not only that, but a prostitute would not actually love any of their clients so it's really not helping them. I understand that it's harder for them to find love or even just someone to have casual sex with but like anon said, that would just be using prostitutes as "medicine".

At the end of the day a prostitute isn't going to quench someone's thirst for affection. It's just a temporary fix to a bigger issue. What would be better is creating ways for disabled people to get in touch with other disabled or, or abled people who would be willing to date disabled people. Also teaching them social skills for the ones who are socially awkward.

They'd want their mom to book them doc appts about their dick. They'd want their mom to listen to them vent about life with a small dick.. and older men replying to them would encourage them to constantly seek out empathy and encouragement from mom cos that's a mom job.

I know it's not street prostitutes, and it's awfully sad what they go through but it still doesn't justify treating sex as an actual human right like food. In her case none of the escorts wanted to, but if it's her right it's okay to force a mandated government one to? someone who would not do it under normal circunstamces?

And also human connection in the form of friendships and close bonds are extremely important for mental health, far more than sex i would say, should the government assign professional friends to someone who can't keep them due to bpd or mood disorders? should these escorts be available for extremely ugly people too?

It's just so commodifying, you shouldn't force human relationships to be a right or a thing you can buy no matter how heart breaking it is for them, humans aren't medicine. It just reeks of incel "I DESERVE a woman no matter what" bullshit.
