I love this painting, Pollice Verso, because of how enthusiastic the Vestal Virgins are while watching kek. There's another famous painting where they look more dignified, but this one has more character. Obviously, this was made centuries after the Roman Empire's peak, and while there is some debate over how well the artist depicted certain aspects of Ancient Rome, it is accurate that the Vestals were able to attend gladiator games. The artist's depiction of the Vestals is probably referencing "A Reply to the Address of Symmachus" by Prudentius, which describes a Vestal as doing the 'converso pollice' gesture to express her desire to see a gladiator be dispatched. Now, Prudentius had meant his description as an unflattering depiction of the Vestals, but there was almost certainly a gesture of that nature. Other, arguably more reliable, sources have also made references to the 'pollice verso,' which translates to, 'with thumb turned.' We don't know exactly what it looked like; most art and even some movies (like Gladiator) depict it as a thumbs-down motion, but we don't know that for a fact. The thumb could have been pointed in any number of directions.

Sorry, deleted and reposted because of some minor typos that were bothering me.

Yes! I would love to read those threads. I do remember one thread on /x/, I think it was a recorded interview with a mother of a student there. She spoke about things like the alleged sniper on the roof and the Shoels family having to leave town, it was fascinating stuff but I never thought to bookmark it. Hoo boy, Freemasonry is a big rabbit hole. I'll recap a few things off the top off my head. Ok so the highest you can progress in Scottish Rite masonry - the most popular Rite - is the 33rd degree. The number 33 has a habit of popping up in suspicious events, and with Sarah Everard it was no different. She disappeared on the 3/3, she was 33 y/o and IIRC so was her boyfriend. She went missing in London, the home of modern Freemasonry, which has 33 boroughs if you include the the city of London. The met police often have the checker board patterns on their hats and uniform like picrel and checker board floors are in every Masonic lodge, the pattern being a big part of their symbolism. This is all sounds like tinfoil, I know. But Freemasons in the police has been pretty well reported on, particularly in regard to it affecting the chain of command. Here's a couple of articles from mainstream press to get you started.

i don't mind when the victims are female, as long is not the same old story: moid kills women for sexual gratification. and in most podcasts its always this fucking story because its the most common crime and most podcasters are lazy cretins that don't do any research into real interesting cases.

I don't think that True Crime shouldn't be criticized, everyone in here is already familiar with its many flaws, but since that Dahmer show with Evan Peters became popular I've noticed how moralism against TC has grown.
It's a very non issue, but I wanted to talk about because is kind of annoying how even in TC communities you have people who themselves consume its contents but now want to act very holier than thou, as if only them have the capacity to consume it ethically.
(Not so related pic).

No. 385281

I agree. I think it's annoying how everything is being policed these days with the weird rhetoric that it's only okay to engage with non-problematic media. Or if you do engage in media that is 'problematic' you have to be aware of every little issue surrounding it or else people will talk down to you like in your picrel. People just can't enjoy things anymore. (Although as you said, the true crime genre has its flaws and is exploitative by nature. But it's stupid for people to act holier-than-thou about it)

Anyone else just really fucking love Karkat? I don't know what it is about him but I feel like the 'angry shortstack tsundere with motherly tendencies who inadvertently holds everyone together' thing going on with him is super rare in male characters. I don't think there are any other male characters quite like him. His trope of character is usually a woman. It's really weird that the writers chose to do nothing with him other than make him Dave's wife in the end.

NTA but I've watched the video up to like the 1:40 mark and him appearing in her video footage of the location every now and then is truly not that much troon content, she never gives him spotlight, but she does refer to him as her sister. The funny thing is even before coming to this thread and learning it really is a troon, I noticed "her sister" was a he from the first time his face appears in shot for like 0.8 seconds, and he hasn't said a word up to that point. Not even the neotenous features the siblings have manages to save him from being utterly clockable.

No. 384952

I watched it until halfway through and gave up. Too long for me and she overexplains everything, it's not my thing. I wish she could tell her troon brother to shut the fuck up because his gross womanface voice is disgusting. He's so creepy, it feels like he's skinwalking her and secretly masturbating to her videos.
