Serious question - is drinking small amounts of alcohol for relaxation actually bad for you? Not a full glass of wine, but just a small amount. Is drinking as bad as everyone says it is, like is it much worse than taking anti anxiety medication?

"Lethal dose" can actually mean a couple different things - in some contexts it's LD50, which is the dose amount at which 50% of subjects will die without treatment, but it can also be to a higher margin of safety like 1% for medications. So the "lethal dose" might only kill 1% of people, so its more like "minimum dose that might kill you."

Of course when people say someone "took a lethal dose of x" it means a dose that did or could have killed them, but really its pretty vague because people have very different tolerances, which is how people survive "lethal doses" of things not infrequently. It depends a lot more on if they get treatment in time, bit its not really possible to say if a given person would have lived/would have died with or without treatment after the fact.

Honestly pretty privilege plays a part, though confidence is key as well. I always seemed like a shy loser but when I started dressing better, lost weight, and developed the slightest bit of confidence, people began treating me differently. I've literally been described as "mysterious", "stoic", etc. by people and it's because I'm a relatively (I must emphasize RELATIVELY) pretty woman who is neither bubbly and outgoing nor shy and reclusive – just reserved.

are straight eyebrows considered to be ugly or masculine on women? even if they're shaped or naturally have a small arch?

>>848274
something like this, more straight with an arch, or like Natalie Portman's, as exemplified by >>848276

unlike the Korean ones mine are thicker, but they've been trimmed down and shaped for years, thusly why I adapt an arch for them

it seems like even if they're perceived as more youthful they're typically considered plain janey, not striking or sexy. While Portman and Watson are both very pretty imo they're considered rather plain or babyfaced as opposed to sexy, same goes for a lot of other women with thick, straight eyebrows

Can a person with OCD have an uncleaned room and greasy (stuff such as) keyboard/mouse?

No. 848331

>>848328
Being neurotic about cleaning your house and arranging things isn't an exclusive symptom of OCD, the hyperfixation might be focused on something else. Like having routines and rituals you absolutely can't, under any circuimstances, overlook or skip. So yes, a person with OCD can live in a pigsty but be extremely occupied with how to dress and in what order for example, or reoccurring intrusive thoughts. OCD is basically the fear of losing control in your life.

No. 848332

>>848328
Yes, extreme cleanliness is only one manifestation of OCD, so they might have different compulsions and obsessions. I also read some stat once that 1 in 4 people who have OCD can exhibit hoarding behaviors if that gives you an idea of the difference between people. In general, I'm pretty sure OCD is commonly diagnosed in hoarders, which is a far cry from how people normally think of OCD.

It because it is cheaper in the long run to manufacture a single type of needles that you can use in different ways like picrl. And the length of the needle helps with avoiding accidently stabbing your self when injecting another person as if it had been a short needle more likely accidently stabbing yourself with a used needle that could transmit diseases like HIV for example.
The needles are single use and the length helps with >stability and sanitary reasons.

Please tell me what it means nonnies. I've been waiting to ask out my coworker and today I finally had the courage. We had a conversation and when he was about to go home, I asked if we could have a beer or something, he asked when, and when I said I still don't know here anyone he was like "sure we can have a meeting with others or something". He didn't get the idea I think only about him. I was too shy to say it directly. But then he asked what town I live in and when I answered, he said it's pretty close and he could even come there on a bike. If he still had a group meeting in mind, would he said something like this? Did he finally get the memo and suggested he could pay me a visit, without anyone else? Why do I have to be so fucking autistic? Right after that my other coworker came in and my crush left

That's not really true, beauty is pretty universal disregarding minor differences in trends and standards. It's also not helpful. What if it turned out that literally nobody in the world found someone attractive? What should they feel then?

The reality is that looks don't determine our value, but it's really difficult to internalize that when there's so much pressure on women to be beautiful. The media, the beauty industry, coomers, the people in our lives, etc all strive to make us feel like we're failures if we aren't considered attractive or aren't appealing to the opposite sex. It helps me to remind myself that we don't owe the world beauty, there's nothing wrong with our natural form.

the nice thing about plants is that its ok if they die…you can just plant another. If you have to buy another i guess that costs money but packets of seeds are never more than like $6 for more seeds than youll ever need, so if ur plants always die, look up something easy to grow from seed in a small pot and try that, and just keep trying if it doesnt work out. As a matter of fact, a lot of tha plants you buy in stores are not really in a wholesome situation, which might be why they seem to die on you after you buy them. Like it might have just been repotted from where it was actually grown into a little tiny pot to sell it to you, and its going to die from the repotting trauma no matter what you do, it just takes a while cause its a plant.

It feels cruel to say so what if they die but i mean, people buy cut flowers that only last 2 days before withering. It would be wrong to be like "well my cats keep dying but ill get another and try to do better next time" but you can do that with a plant and its genuinely a valid learning experience on your part. pls no plastic plants they are so gosh darn tacky. and growing plants from seed is so fun, early on you can literally watch them grow over the course of a day depending on the plant.

Yes. It was considered taboo for sexual relationships to occur between anyone under the age of about 16, but even then historically that was kinda dicey. Aside from monarchs or really rich people who had to get married for clout most people have had more or less the same idea of a relationship’s acceptable age range.

how the fuck do i stop using nasal spray. i know you should just quit cold turkey but it's not working. the last time i stopped using it, my nose was still blocked the moment my head hit the pillow at night (couldn't use a second pillow to prop my head up further either because then i'd have the worst back pain the next day). i frequently woke up at night because my mouth and tongue were so dried out that my tongue felt strange and swollen and i panicked because i thought i had something stuffed in my mouth and i was choking. after a month of this i gave up and went back to using nasal spray because i just couldn't stand it anymore. how do i stop???? before that, i already quit nasal spray once and my nose didn't make a fuss about it even though i used nasal spray for like four years straight. i'm back on it now because i had a cold like a half a year ago and couldn't breathe at all. or should i just wait until allergy season is over?? i have no idea if my current problems are allergy related though. i'm just so tired of having a blocked nose all the time.

Here's how I did it, had the exact same problem: I kept the bottle of my last nasal spray and filled it with some water when it was almost empty. Shaked it and used the diluted spray until it was almost gone, then refilled with some water again. Kept using that until my nose stopped getting stuffy.
This way you gradually wean yourself off the spray with it diluted ever more, until it's just placebo. Keep using while it's just water for the placebo effect until eventually your nose is recovered.
I know it sounds a bit silly, but it's much better than suffocating when quitting cold turkey.

I think in the majority of cases, no. A lot of parents neglect their kids in ways or hurt them in ways they aren't aware of.

That's why there should be a balance. If the kid feels loved enough and is getting their emotional needs met, they won't act up even if the parents exert some degree of control. It's a delicate balancing act of giving them enough freedom but not too much. For example, if you restrict social media access, they might feel like they're missing out on something. You can just replace that with something else more fun or enjoyable. The kid's not going to give a shit about missing out on social media or other dumb garbage if they are out making lots of memories experiencing new things.
Lots of parents want to neglect their kids and let the internet take care of them instead, it really fucks them up when they are at an impressionable age. You don't learn how to empathize if you are behind a screen reading all the terrible things people say and do all day every day.

No. 849657

Oh fuck I'm not sure I can describe them well but pink pill is essentially feminism without men, showing statistics of male on female violence, a dislike for troons in general, recognizing the many ways women have been screwed over in history, letting go of societies expectations of women to look good or become housewives, I think some straight and bi women choose to not date men or have kids with them because of their dislike for men

Blackpill is like pinkpill but more doom-minded that women will always be seen as nothing but sex objects where men rule the world and continuing to have male babies is setting the world or women back. That women should definitely not be with men because they only see them as something to have kids and look pretty. Most of the users who post in blackpill go with a very statistical and animal-like approach when it comes to their point of view.

I'm bored queuing for the vaccine so here is my reddit-spaced for clarity understanding of the situation as a mostly impartial lurker:

Byuu, a very minor cow from the furry subforum, emailed null threatening to kill himself if he didn't take down his thread. He also offered 120k dollars. Null saw this as extortion and didn't want to upset his forum users, so he declined.

The thread was short, inactive and about very boring autistic drama that hardly anyone cared about. Byuu had even posted in it last year stating he had changed and didnt mind the thread, and was met with support. Byuu said in his emails that the reason he wants the thread gone isn't because of what it says about him but because multiple friends of his were doxed within it, which caused them stop associating with Byuu (Null and the kiwis completely ignore this for some reason, they keep repeating that byuu didn't explain what bothered him about the thread when he clearly did).

Anyway, null declined the 120k offer and refused to delete the thread, but was willing to take up on Byuu's offer to work for the forum (weird as fuck I know, idfk). Eventually byuu stopped emailing him and someone claiming to be his friend posted a Google doc saying that he killed himself and blaming kiwi farms. Oh and byuu also posted a thread on Twitter citing kiwi farms before allegedly committing.

Byuu was a nonbinary furry programmer who was somewhat well known in the emulator community for his work, so this sparked a wave of outrage at kf on twitter and reddit. Some trannies payed to ddos the forum which kept it down for a couple of days.

It's questionable whether he killed himself or not because there's no proof, he lives in Japan so it's hard to contact the local authorities (also imo the Google doc came off as very calculated and cold for someone whose friend just died).

No. 850448

>>850444
The googledoc also had pretty clear instructions on how to attack KF to get it removed to the internet (in particular mentioning Cloudflare and Dreamhost, Dreamhost has now removed KF because trannies have mass-reported it). Which makes it pretty obvious that the entire thing was a calculated plan to rile up a mob of angry trannies to try and get the site permanently taken down. None of the people who were super duper outraged even knew who Byuu was, most of them also have threads on the site and reasons to want it removed.

There is a list of all confirmed deaths of american citizen living abroad that comes out every 6 months so we won't know if he is dead until the new release of that, but I am certain he is still alive and reveling in all the chaos he caused.

Sometimes I go on forums (not imageboards nor reddit) and whenever it's mostly male oriented userbase, the topic of women inevitably arises. And it always depresses me because no matter if they're talking about their girlfriend, wife (of many years even!) and/or mother of his kids, they basically reduce them to walking warm holes that should clean, cook and fuck like a porn star. They don't always phrase it in that way but it definitely seems to be the only functions they really care about with little concern to how their spouse would feel like. I always thought these were just thoughts of teenage guys on 4chan but it seems to be more of a common outlook. Am I wrong? I sincerely don't think men, unless you're blood related, actually value women. But maybe it's me since I view sex with men degrading.

I live in the US and realized everyone else I know or know of, got put under anesthesia when they got their wisdom teeth out. I got my bottom ones out at 16 (they were impacted) then my top ones out at 21.

All my dentist did was give me some valium and local anesthetics. Is that normal? Why didn't I get put under either time? Tf.

No. 850682

>>850657
When I had my wisdom teeth removed, I only had a few to get out and did it in one go and just had local anesthesia. I'm not sure how normal it is or not, but I assume that they avoid total sedation when possible, it's pretty expensive. Some people go out of their way to request it, I know one of my friends was only sedated because she had anxiety and asked specifically to be put under during the procedure.

I have a huge wood-mounted artwork that I have to pack and my only option is to put together two mirror boxes like in pic rel. The problem is that the box is a foot and a half too wide for my picture and it's really difficult to pack more paper in the negative space because they're designed to slide together from opposite ends to make one big box. I've attached these foam blocks to protect the corners and wrapped the picture in a bunch of bubble wrap and blankets but it's not enough to fill the space at the side so it's still rattling a bit inside the box. What can I do? I'm going to be driving about 3 hours away. The piece is heavy and sturdy but I don't want to risk it breaking during the move.

I had exactly the same experience. I think at that age, I thought boys were cute but I had no interest in (or understanding of) being in a relationship with them myself (also boys tend to be less mature than girls at that point). I guess it made me prefer obsessing over two cute boys in love rather than self-inserting or relating to a straight relationship. My fujo phase was pretty innocent and brief though, so this probably isn't the case for most people.

Weekly!! However, I wake up literally sodden about three or four times a night thanks to nerve damage, venlafaxine, and the humidity. I feel like I want to change them more often because of that, but it feels wasteful.

Here's my stupid question: how do you manage night sweats (if you get them)?
I wear pyjamas to soak the sweat but my top is always wet when I wake up. If I take my blanket or the pyjamas off to cool down, I start shivering.
It sounds stupid, but I'm waking up a lot and struggling to go back to sleep because of it, so it's really bothering me at the moment. This has been going on for months, now that I think about it. Not cool, Hajime.

A small fan directly pointed at you. Might not make you cooler, but would wick off some of the sweat.

How odd would it be to wear a wetsuit like pic to a pool party with family? I just don't feel comfortable in a bikini or regular one-piece with uncles and random extended family around. I have considered just getting a long sleeve rash guard top and those boy-short type bottoms but even those would be technically booty shorts if they weren't bathing suit material, which is also something I wouldn't ever wear around family.

One time I was close to summoning a goetic demon but the prep needed wasn’t in the scope of a 15 year old girl with strict parents so.. I honestly don’t remember what it’s called but you needed this large cloth (9 feet x 9 feet) with a the circle of Solomon painted on it, and a certain triangular thing where the demon would be or something, and a sigil on calf parchment. Plus a bunch of other obscure shit. Thing is, you need to ask the demon for something and repay them (nothing crazy like selling your soul), but I didn’t have anything to ask for, I just wanted to see it.

I remember one time I came across a reddit post of a guy who successfully summoned Gaap. I hate reddit and I think their occult subreddits are a waste of time but anyways. Picrel but I used to be able to see him perfectly, there in the corner. He’s criss cross applesauce and his back is facing you and you can see his spine a bit. Some said he is facing you and has a braid. The pic could be doctored, but I never bothered to check.

Scrying with a black mirror is also really effective. I never got a chance to use mine because it broke, I wasn’t careful and had it balancing on a weird spot. I never tried any of this again because I feel like I would be betraying God, and I also used to and still sometimes have intrusive thoughts of demonic faces. It’s usually when I’m alone or trying to sleep, and I would see them very vividly. I wouldn’t say they were physically there, but it is very intense. One time I was so scared that I tried picturing/ calling out to Jesus. It instantly stopped, and I felt the stigmata wounds on the hand and foot closest to the edge of the bed. It could just be me tho nona.

>>852548
I’d have to brush up on the key of solomon and the lesser key, but usually certain demons correspond to certain desires/prosperities. Paimon had something to do with money, like you can ask for something related to money, Gaap you could ask for something travel related I think. You usually ask for something rather grounded and you in return have to do something. Some people would make art of the demon they evoked or whatever. I would say seek what you want in other ways and don’t convene with these spirits.

sorry this question is going to be dark.

when I was a kid, I had a friend from my neighborhood. her mom & sister went on a trip and stayed in a hotel. the mom died on that trip, in the hotel, and my friend was told by her sister that the mom suffocated in her sleep from "fibers in the pillowcase" due to the pillowcase being unwashed after it was new or something like that. I ended up being scared of pillow cases for the rest of my childhood and adolescence and would never sleep in anything that hadn't been washed several times and even then I was afraid to sleep in it.

but now, that seems really weird, as I have literally never heard of that happening elsewhere. my question is, is that a real thing? I have googled it and found nothing. I think the mom probably died of a drug overdose and gave my friend a different story because she was a child.

Unless she somehow jammed the pillow stuffing down her throat, she didn’t choke on pillow fibres.
She might have had apnea and it was blamed on sleeping face down? Or a seizure and suffocated? Both could happen with or without drugs.

If she was a junkie of any description then probably a garden variety od or suffocation caused by intoxication.

There’s no such thing as killer pillow fibers in the cases or the pillows.

How does body hair know you cut it? For example you shave your armpit hair and it grows back. This kinda makes sense to me because I could imagine the body having some sort of way of determining the hair there is too short (you feel skin rubbing on skin, that's a pretty obvious sign the hair is missing). But if you trim your leg hair even a little bit (some random hairs on your shins, for example) , it will still regrow to its maximum length. I cannot wrap my head around it; how can the body know?? And how can it know how much I cut off?

https://everynoise.com
https://magicplaylist.co/

I also created a bandcamp account and followed artists I like, also signed up for emails from labels I like using the bandcamp 'follow' feature. that's a good way to find new music in of itself. if there are several bands you enjoy all signed to the same label chances are there will be other artists on the same label that'll be up your alley. good luck!

I'm sorry you're having a shit experience with yt and Spotify because I've honestly been doing great with the suggestions they've given me for years. I don't know about you, but I will literally go through all of them to find a good album and then I kind of run with it from there, whether I branch off into the genre or explore the artist more or whatever. I also browse the playlists for genres extensively looking for a good tune and then I'll check out the album it came from. I also use music map or whatever, you can put in artist names and it will bring up a web of other artists that a similar in style and genre, the closer it is to the og name the more similar it is. Another thing I do is google "the best (insert genre) albums" or "albums similar to such and such" and then just stick reddit at the end of it and check out people's discussions in threads. I don't use reddit, but I like to get music suggestions from actual people talking passionately about the shit they love instead of like lists and articles.

It depends on the age of the boiler. On older boilers it's dangerous to leave the boiler on without a pilot light because gas will leak into the rest of the house so do not light a naked flame until you're sure what's going on. More modern boilers have a system that detects if the pilot light is lit and will automatically cut off.

What you need to do is get to the controls of the boiler by taking the front cover off. If you can see a make and model number you can look that up on the internet and probably find an instruction manual that will tell you where everything is. Some boilers also have instructions under the front cover. Turn off the boiler completely and switch the gas valve to off. The gas valve will look like a metal box with a dial on it that can be turned. Then open some doors and windows to get rid of the gas in the air. Wait for half an hour or more so that the gas disperses outside. Next switch the gas valve to pilot mode. Press the reset button. Some more recent boilers have an auto ignition mechanism if not, you will need to manually light the flame. Keep holding down the reset button for 30 seconds or more once the flame has lit, similar to how you light a gas cooker buy holding the ignition button down. Then switch the gas valve from pilot to on and replace the cover.

I'm not gas engineer but my husband is and I've watched him do it many times.

Sound cloud stations tool. You can make a station from any song/artist, like Pandora. Except you can use adblocker with soundcloud, so you have unlimited skips. There's tons of "collectives" on soundcloud where 5+ people post music on the same profile. Similar to bandcamp there are a ton of niche and newer smaller artists. Most of the "mainstream" music is locked behind the Soundcloud+ paywall so you don't encounter it too much tbh. You can also search through tags of your favorite genres and even aesthetics.

Ok I have another dumb question because now I don't know what to do.
I asked for his phone number and he gave it to me and he said we can meet this saturday. He was still pretty shy around me. My other coworker told me he might just think I'm too young for him, no one here knows my real age and people assume I'm like 19. Anyway, today I got an invitation from my superior, they're making a group meeting for people from our department and it will be this fucking saturday. I said I'm not sure if I'm going, because I still didn't know if my crush actually wants to see me and I decided not to push harder and just leave him alone. Turned out he wasn't even invited to the meeting (I assume it's because he started to fuck around lately and it worries me, he used to have a very good relationship with our boss but now it's pretty bad). He asked me first if I still want to go out with him this saturday. I said yeah. I would like to go to the group meeting too, but what am I supposed to say to him? "Sorry, I know we made our plans first but now I choose to go to the party you weren't even invited to because you pissed off our boss"? Idk. Normally I wouldn't have a problem with ignoring a group meeting but this is my first job and I really like it and I take it seriously and I'm afraid that I will make a bad impression if I refuse to go. But I would feel like an asshole if I cancelled my plans with the guy. I don't know what to do.

I want to learn how to play the harp, but it would be self-taught. My friend was talking about how she learned to play piano before the harp and that was important fundamentally, should I try to learn piano as a basis or just aim for the harp directly? Would it be silly to even try to learn, like is the idea of trying to teach myself naive?

Something my friend told me was that she loved instruments because you can pick them up and learn them at any age. She was a piano player first and foremost, so it might have helped her since she’s picked up another instrument. I would go straight to learning the harp, no use in learning the piano if it doesn’t really interest you I think. Lots of resources on the internet nowadays, I believe in you anon!

She also ridiculed one of her coworkers for taking a day off when she was on her period and she felt that she couldn't focus on her work.

it makes sense. An older person who is activelly religious is usually involved and active in their community, and has more social skills, maturity and empathy than a kid raised by social media. Both will judge you for your beliefs, looks and behaviour, but church people are more likely to help (and tolerate) people they don't like, even if it's just to feel like they are the better people, "oh i'm such a saint, helping and forgiving a sinner". SM addicts get their highs by cancelling and excluding people, and not by forgiving and turning the other cheek.
Both groups are moved by their egos, and selfish in their motivations, but practising catholics at least try to make the world better in tangible ways. (ime, but i live in a particulary chill place, so i can't speak for other catholic communities)

I've only started speaking a lot when I've started working for an english speaking company but all I've done prior to that provided a solid basis and the only thing that was left to do was shaking off the shame of potentially making some mistake, which was gone pretty quickly.

it'll go back and forth, don't restrict too much and don't weigh yourself too much waiting around for the number to drop. fuck around & develop anorexia.
i first noticed the biggest difference around two months into my similar diet, i'd recommend alternating your calorie limits. like fast one day (people shit on fasting but intermittent fasting is good imo), eat maybe 200 cals to break the fast next day, work your way up to 1000-1200 over the course of the next few days, then reset. sounds weird but it worked for me. cheat days also boost metabolism, so if you've been consistent and still stuck on a plateau, get a dessert. your body could just be on starvation mode.

Yesterday afternoon as I was coming home from getting groceries my downstairs neighbor came out into the hall and said she had "something to ask me". This was weird because my husband and I have lived here since August of last year and we've never spoke to the downstairs neighbors, only bumped into each other when both leaving the flat at the same time. She said she was going somewhere for 2-3 weeks and asked if we could take care of her daughter's two goldfish for her. I told her I'd ask my husband and would be back. I was on the fence about it but figured it couldn't be that hard because she described the fish as low-maintenance (I had no idea the kind of equipment goldfish actually need) so I told my husband and he reluctantly said sure. After doing some research I realize we're very unprepared.

So, we currently have two common goldfish to take care of and keep alive for the next 2-3 weeks. Neither of us have ever owned a fish. We don't have proper equipment and we're keeping them in a basin like picrel (the neighbor gave it to us, I assume that's what she kept them in), feeding them flake fish food twice a day and doing a partial wash of the container every 2 days (as per request of the neighbor.) They're each about 6 cm/2.5 inches long, not that big but I know the basin is probably still too small. I only found out yesterday that you can't put goldfish in straight tap water, so I'm using bottled water that doesn't have any chlorine or ammonia, but it could have other harmful chemicals/minerals in it. I'm manually oxygenating the tank by stirring it with a spoon and squeezing an empty water to blow bubbles into it every so often. Despite this, the fish seem to be "gasping" at the surface a lot and the water gets cloudy quickly.

Do any anons have tips for keeping goldfish in such minimalist conditions? What are the chances the fish will make it until she gets back? According to what I've read online about proper goldfish keeping, I honestly have no clue how they made it until now. I really don't want to be responsible for the death of someone else's pet.

I've read that fish most often will die right after a water change because of conditions being off or because of a sudden temperature change. I think I remember just being careful about temperature. Chances are tho you're putting more care into these things than the mom does. It's the same when parents buy guinea pigs for their small kids, they nearly always neglect to research what they require for health and they're quick to dump them on equally unprepared people while they go on holiday. You can guarantee that the owners don't put this much care into the fish.

No. 855031

it's better to quit than be fired from both a previous employment reference standpoint and a resume standpoint. if a hiring manager has questions about how your last job ended, they'll ask in the interview and you can explain then.
since employment has been all fucked from covid though i'm sure places are a lot more lenient with that now.

Yes, it's difficult but possible. The two friends I have who make a living off their art have pretty unique art styles that don't fall in the usual boxes for online art (anime, semirealism, etc.) which is probably the reason they're able to get a pretty big audience. They both do a mix of traditional and digital but their methods of marketing are different.

One is really active on social media (Twitter, Instagram, even keeps up on Deviantart and Tumblr), has an online store, had a successful crowdfunding campaign for an artbook, etc., but the other only recently made a portfolio website, otherwise it's all on one platform. I think she's mostly able to sustain herself on big commissions from commercial stuff, like t-shirt designs for online stores, so there's that. Tbf though, both of them live frugally and in a relatively inexpensive area, it might not be possible somewhere else.

What can cause excessive body hair besides PCOS? I've always been extra hairy, but over the past couple years I've developed a neckbeard and a good amount of chest hair. I'm seeing my doctor about it soon finally but Covid is making it really slow and I'm getting super paranoid and hypochondriac about it.

I don't think it's PCOS because my periods seem fine, they're regular and I don't have bad pain. But according to Dr. Google all the other causes of hirsutism are like tumours and I'm freaking out.

Or maybe it's possible to have PCOS with no period symptoms? PCOS runs in my family so it seems likely but my periods are fine.

My underage zoomer brother is getting groomed by trans “women” on discord because he is an actual giant and has been locked inside all year because of covid. He now thinks he is trans. He’s not considering anything serious yet but still. It’s not out of the ballpark that he is gay or bi or w/e but he was at least completely cis until like a month ago and I just found out bc I am not living at home. He is obviously not remotely dysphoric and he is clearly just struggling because he is legit giant and is probably uncomfortable with himself because he can’t even do normal things due to his size. I know there is no sympathy for males here but I’m a female and I can’t deal with this shit so can anyone give me some advice? Sorry in advance if wrong thread this is a retarded question after all

dw sis most of us have sympathy for the underage boys trannies groom, it's disgusting and wrong.

That said I don't have much advice, I don't have a brother letalone a troon one. You're probably gonna have to just talk to him and try to understand why he thinks he's trans, then eventually convince him why it's bullshit. If you're not already up to date on gender critical rhetoric you should spend some time on ovarit, radblr, even the mtf thread etc so you have a good understanding yourself and can offer up some points for consideration. A reasonable person should be peaked easily with some questions to expose circular logic, like 'what is a woman' 'what does it mean to feel like a woman' etc. Worst case scenario just show him some neovag horror stories.

You're right, that's why I said she needs to talk to him and understand his reasoning.

Why do I gain weight when I eat to satiety?
Does it mean that I'm maintaining an artificially low weight or is my body a dumb animal that just wants more more more?

No. 856965

>>856953
the latter, the more you eat the more you need to feel full

No. 856981

>>856953
how full you are or are not has nothing to do with it. it's about how much calories are in the things you eat and how long they keep you full for. a "satiety" amount of carrots has far less calories than a "satiety" amount of pasta. protein like chicken eaten to satiety takes longer to digest and will keep you satisfied longer than simple carbs like bread or cereal and you won't want to eat again as quickly. your body doesn't feel "full" when you've eaten a certain appropriate amount of calories, it feels full when the physical space in your stomach has a certain amount of food in it. furthermore, you can't trust what your body "naturally" wants in such an unnatural world, foodwise. nothing about the modern day availability of every type of food in every season and engineered snack foods and fast food designed to be addicting is natural. you have to plot the course yourself if you want to watch your weight in a world that wants to sell you anything it can get you to buy.

check out what Sasha Ayad and Stella O'Malley have said about this, Ayad has some pieces on 4thWaveNow. They work with gender questioning kids and their parents. You can't really confront directly, most important is spending more time with them and not lose the connection or trust. The focus is on girls now so it's harder to find resources about boys but they do have some episodes of their podcast (gender: a wider lens) about this. A lot of parents/family members in this sphere do veer too controlling and get so scared of kid transitioning I think they lose focus on the kid's wellbeing. Being trans is not the end of the world but obviously issue is here he's probably being groomed and it won't actually help his issues.

Amsterdam is the no.1 destination for British men. Avoid any man who has a "lad's holiday" there. Personally, I avoid any man who has a bunch of "lads" for anything lol, but "lad's holiday + Amsterdam" always means sex tourism, regardless of what stupid story they spin you. Prostitution is legal but highly, highly stigmatised in the UK and many aspects of prostitution is illegal, including brothels, most men choose to travel for less of a headache and keep their reputation safe. Most women working in the sex trade in the UK are either native drug addicts usually pimped out or disabled women struggling to keep head above water or pimped out foreign women. Foreign women are often enticed with short term work in a car wash or something by a male relative (even low paid week's work in the UK can go a long way in some eastern euro countries) they find themselves in a dingy caravan fucking obese middle-aged men instead. Going to Amsterdam is a way for British men to feel 'clean' about it, it's also why they travel in groups in order to pluck up the courage to actually go through with it via peer pressure.

But I'm scared of "abandoning" her and fucking things up and never ever seeing her healthy again because she loves me and relies on me a lot. But she really does rely on me a lot emotionally and that's fucking annoying. But I don't want to leave her alone. Idk what to do anymore.

I really need advice here, in a way I wish someone could just say "YES IT'S OKAY TO WANT TO MOVE ON AND CONTINUE WITH YOUR LIFE" but I feel so goddamn guilty.

Stop being a Muslim. Islam was created by the false prophet Muhammad as a heresy of Christianity in order to rule over the tribes of the Arabian peninsula and conquer the Eastern Roman Empire and the Sassanid empires. The false prophet Muhammad was an evil man who murdered innocent people and raped the women who he oppressed as his slaves. Read the website answering islam: www.answering-islam.org for more information. I recommend you learn more about real religions and their beliefs. I converted to Christianity after being a Muslim earlier in my life.

Is it rude if I call a potential part-time employer myself if I haven't heard from them after they said they'd "probably" call? Last time we talked they asked my hours and said that they sound fine. I ask bc I got a part-time teaching position as a grad student to lower my costs and now I'm being asked for my hours on certain days and I wanna make sure if this part-time job is still interested in hiring me so I can section some time off in case. This part-time job wouldn't require me to commute and my time on campus is only 3 days out of the week anyways so I could take the other 4 to work at their business.

This business took forever to contact me after my application was sent in which is why I ask, I need to send in my hours soon so I can start scheduling

A lot of people just have warped ideas of what counts as eating. A drink full of sugar and cream from Starbucks doesn't count as eating, it's just a drink. A high calorie snack doesn't count as eating because it's not a proper meal. A handful of nuts is healthy so it's not really eating.

It is absolutely worth it, but you have to cultivate another (positive and allow-ist) mindset. Drawing is a skill, and skills can be improved. The only way to not improve is if you don't draw. Also, it is important to allow yourself to make mistakes. You're learning and there's no learning without mistakes. Try to internalize these things. Also I wholeheartedly recommend the Drawabox course on Youtube, I had several epiphanies while I was doing it.

I'm know that I can be a very emotional before my period, but I've also noticed a change in symptoms with me being in my late 20s.
So I wondered if it's normal before the period to be no only emotional over something for a brief moment but also for a longer period that lasts days (or even weeks)? I have mood swings for a while now that come and go but mostly I feel like being sad and always on the verge of crying. Is it also normal that it can be triggered by something (sad piece of media for example) in the time before the period?

It drives me crazy at this point, bc normally I see something sad, I'm sad for a bit but not for such a long ass time and my period is still a few days away. Help?

Are bootleg/off brand crocs just as comfortable as real crocs? Or do they mimic only the look and nothing else?

Some more phrases to learn:

Learn to start adding "ass" to adjectives to enhance your sentences and really sound like a local (e.g., "That's a big-ass burger", "That was a long-ass drive", "My cousin just bough a big-ass truck.") Make sure you also learn the regional plural "you" (examples: y'all, you all, you guys)

I got recurrent UTIs for a while in my early and mid twenties. Sex would set it off. I'd be clean, I'd pee before and after, the guy would be clean by scrote standards. I'd still end up paying for it.

Years ago when women waited til marriage they'd call utis a honeymoon illness. Thing is once you get one uti you can be prone or you might just never truly shift the first infection. So women would wait til marriage, the guy would jackhammer them after the wait or they'd overdo it…on honeymoon you'd be slow to find and see a doctor..or your virgin self doesn't know what if the irritation is just normal.. years of recurrent utis end up coming from it and you'd be scared to let the guy near you again.

Yeah it’s common even with the most immaculate hygiene. Apparently overcleansing can cause it which sucks. Kill off a few too many healthy bacteria and the yeast just takes over.

Depends, usually you have a room with people standing in a semi circle in front of eisels (you either bring your own paper or it’s part of the cost of the lessons), common courtesy is to not leave or enter room while model is nude.
The poses usually start off with quick ones (10-30s up to 1-5min), and then maybe a 30min pose and a longer 1-2h pose. The classes I’ve taken have usually been about 3-3,5 hours. You can ask for/suggest poses especially for the shorter ones. The teacher usually walks around during longer poses to give advice/ corrections.

For me it just happened.
