Is art education in the East, particularly in Japan and South-Korea differ from Western art education? This is obviously generalisation but to me it seems that the Japanese for instance seem to have a better grasp at drawing from an early age. Not sure if this is because of their different educational system or because their culture is places more focus on visual culture

idk abt any of that but its better dexterity maybe, from chopsticks. perhaps being raised in environments where children dont eat glue during art class also contributes. many parents (from personal experience) put their kids in art and music classes outside of school from kindergarten for enrichment. these arent serious private $60/hr classes, but more like group activities that other mothers and older women teach so its also that much more affordable and sets the status quo

It has a lighter/more delicate taste. It's best for savory dishes or along with other sauces, like okonomiyaki sauce etc etc

I think it's because there's an emphasis on being "neat" from a young age. Also better looking media to copy from, and coloring books tend to be more detailed.

there is a misconception by westerners that stuff like anime is all stylization and 0 knowledge, but it's not true. I have seen generic animu moeshit artists recommend Hampton and other academic drawing resources. Basically, the only difference is that Japanese artists actually practice and dont hide behind ''muh style''

No. 1690495

Idk how they even managed to convince themselves of that. It's Westerners who rely heavily on the "muh art style", whilst even the most uninspired coomer shit anime has great art that's aestheticly pleasing and anatomically correct. Anyone with eyes can tell they actually at least studied and practiced with a reference at least once, while western artists rely heavily on the calarts/low effort cartoon styling. If not, they badly emulate the anime art style. What a cope lol

Sleep happens when several cognitive centers get disconnected and your ego no longer maintains a connection between them and thus dissipates, but these cognitive centers by themselves always remain active, only connections dissipate. If several cognitive centers remain connected during sleep, dreaming happens, if all the centers are disconnected, deep, dreamless sleep happens. Although during dreaming state your ego has mostly dissipated it still manifests from connections between cognitive centers that have remained connected and you're able to remember what you dream, but since its disconnected from the other centers you cannot experience what they are doing during that time. In your case what they are doing is having a little nightmare of their own, with their own little dreaming ego that you don't remember, because only one you can exist at a time.

Just finished watching Leaving Neverland and I'm disturbed but also confused. Just wtf was MJ's sexual orientation? Was he straight, gay or bi? He seemed to be at least somewhat attracted to women with his crush on Diana Ross and Wade mentioning his obsession with Britney Spears (saying how 'sexy and beautiful' she was), but then again, all of his victims seemed to be boys, not girls. Both James and Wade mentioned MJ trying to move things to 'the next level', as they grew up to their teens with stuff like anal. Was he just a repressed and deeply warped and fucked up bisexual man from his years of abuse at the hand of his father?

No. 1690973

I know very few gay men who don’t idolise «the divas» and speak of them in terms that could be confused with sexual attraction, especially closeted ones. He was opportunistic when it came to his victims. Even if he wanted to assault girls, it would have been slightly more difficult to convince parents to let them come and stay at his compound with other boys. Sadly, I think some parents would have had no issue putting their daughters in harm's way to get close to him.

Bras actually make boobs get saggier over the time, saggy breasts are genetic, they can also happen if you gained lots of weight and lost it quickly or just lost it, but you could maybe do some exercises to try and lift them by training your chest muscles.
If they’re not particularly annoying, then you could try accepting them as they are, but if they get on your way, you could try breast reduction or a boob lift surgery.

have you ever had a broken/injured arm or leg and noticed how skinny your arm or leg becomes because the muscles waste away from not being used? that's how it is for the muscles that hold your chest. the muscles and connective tissue become weak because the bras do all the heavy lifting (heh) so as soon as you take off your bras, your breasts sag because the muscles and tissue needed to uphold them have wasted away. you can do exercises to build muscles and counter some of the sagging but unfortunately you cannot restore the connective tissue.

No. 1691614

Nta but I have seen and know a couple of women who have said microneedling and lactic acid peel helped with sagging but im not sure if it's moreso weight loss?

Is having feminine decor on your car considered dangerous? I got a brand new car and I want to decorate inside it, kinda like picrel but less extreme.
I live in a very safe area but I still worry that if a creep or something saw a car decked out in pink stuff (on the inside, no bumper stickers) that would put me at way more risk.
I see some women just say to decorate it anyways and it's not additional risk, but others think it could be.
What do you nonnies think? Good or bad idea?

No. 1691660

Honestly, it depends on where you live, if you live in a zone that isn’t dangerous in general, then you could do it, but if you live in a dangerous area, or if you need to stop in dangerous areas, it could cause you trouble because having a flashy car attracts the attention of lots of people.

bullshit, connective tissue doesnt get stronger with use and strengthening the muscles under your breasts isn't going to make them perky. boobs sag as you get older, it's the facts of life. you can never wear a bra if you want but time and gravity come for us all.

No. 1691701

Nta and yeah exercising the muscles under the breast tissue isn't going to help with sagging but I don't think the anon was claiming that breasts won't sag at all without a bra. Just that wearing bras can worsen sagging. Same with gaining and losing weight, aging, smoking, drug use that affects collagen loss, anachanning, multiple pregnancies and breastfeeding. Those women probably birthed and fed a lot of babies, but yeah that amount of sag is pretty normal for breasts to get over time.

I accidentally broke the washing machine that I share with my housemate and it will probably have to get repaired. My housemate wants me to pay for the repair, no idea how much it would be.

The thing is though he owes me over $$$ for emergency vet payments due to me having to get an uber there and back to a late night vet (which he admits the incident was his fault and he should pay) he's paid $25 and makes constant excuses to why he shouldn't pay but then orders uber eats pretty much every night. He says he doesn't have the money but then refuses to get a job (he had one but got fired due to pretending to be sick in the first 3 weeks) because he wants to become a famous twitch streamer despite having about 5 people maximum watching him at any time. Just about every week he asks me for extra money, won't say what it's for and then gets pissed because I refuse to give it to him and tell him to get a job.

Anyway I've just had a big chunk of money go because living with this man is an absolute nightmare that would take 50 years to write out, but basically he is one of the most disgusting people I've ever met and I need to move out. Even if I did have the money I think it's bullshit for me to pay for the machine when he has made constant excuses not to pay me, and when I move out I know for a fact there's no way in hell I'm getting my money. But at the same time it was me who broke the machine, but I'm out of here in a week so it's not my problem once I'm gone.

Should I pay for the repair? Or should I say fuck it and refuse to pay due to the money he owes me plus the absolute hell it has been to live with him?

Both are possible I think. I realised a few months ago I have the same skin and hormonal issues my mother has and took it serious.

I'd say your body/tastebuds/mind is just more used to natural sugar now so added sugar either tastes worse or makes you feel worse. A lot of people say when they change to healthier alternatives after a while it happens to them and eating junk just doesn't feel worth it

It also could be a subconscious thing if you are serious about your hormonal issues, you don't want to feel and look like that therefore the junk food doesn't feel worth it

What is liking someone enough to be in a relationship supposed to feel like? I think there were times when I felt very intensely about people and then it just disappeared and looking back I feel like I didn't really like them. The person I like now, I feel like it's a more sustained interested but not as intense and I'm worried it will just go away. I think he likes me too.

I doubt anyone knows the answer to this, but I was recently told by a doctor (orthopedic specialist) that I might have very mild cerebral palsy. Is it really possible to make it this far in life (mid 20s) and NOT know you have cerebral palsy? Just how mild can cerebral palsy be? My issue is not being able to flex my feet upwards, which has led to issues walking and standing normally. That said, I've had doctors watch me walk and they say that my gait is screwed up on a technical level, but I've compensated for my limited range of motion shockingly well and look mostly normal at a glance. My family used to tell me on occasion that I walked sort of weird though, which hurt my feelings. Could I seriously have fucking cerebral palsy???

Sorry in advance if I'm saying something obvious but have you played around with your diet?

eating healthier (lots of fruits, veggies, legumes, avoiding processed/junk food), drinking plenty of water, consistently going to bed early and getting enough sleep, exercising regularly, cutting down on screen time, trying to keep stress to a minimum.
low vitamin d and/or low iron can cause energy issues - if you are able to, go get a blood test to check if your levels are normal for everything or if you need supplements. it could be a thyroid issue too so you may want to get that checked out also.

Am I overreacting if I think this is an absolutely retarded reason to ban somebody? I posted this in response to someone getting banned for mentioning that Bulgarian guys are hairy or ugly or something. That anon got banned for racebait. Then I posted this, because it really is stupid that jannies think Bulgarians are a race, that anyone would take offense at Bulgarian males being made fun of, and that mentioning Bulgarian (MALES) at all in a negative way counts as racebait. Then this gets banned as bait? Are jannies all sensitive children or something? Does anyone else feel like this site is being painful to use because any and every shitpost gets banned for "bait"? And yet infighting will go on for hours because jannies are sleeping, but if you mention males from anywhere on earth it's racebaiting. Or if you make a post the jannies don't like it's bait. How is this bait? Baiting anons into saying what exactly? Baiting an argument?

I don’t like any surgery but I dislike when people put them in the same league when attempting to lessen the evil of BBLs.

Both are major risks to your health, and I feel like while bbls being so deadly is talked about pretty often (thank god), boob jobs being an absolute nuisance to deal with isn't as common of a topic. A woman I know had a breast implant inserted after breast cancer and so far she has had to replace those implants twice in a span of 6 years. If this continues she'll be getting surgeries every few years for the rest of her life. Capsular contracture fucking sucks and it's crazy how society memes women into getting these incredibly inconvenient surgeries that imo don't even improve your body. At least nose jobs can actually fix an unfortunate potato of a nose, or jaw surgeries can fix absolutely scary fucked up jaws although I'm not a fan of these surgeries either.

Mr. Nobody - a family man seeks revenge after his family is robbed and assaulted, turns out he isn’t just an average guy. Pretty heavy on the macho shit.
Avengement - a man is betrayed by his brother and sent to a nightmarish prison, he escapes and seeks his brother out. Brutal fight sequences, very ufc inspired.
Hard Candy - a teenage girl seeks answers about her missing best friend, will she herself become a victim? No full on knock, down drag out fights but that’s because the protag is a tiny girl. Psychological torture.
Double Jeopardy - a woman is sentenced to prison for killing her husband, only she didn’t do it. Oldie but one of my favs, kind of a court drama/political intrigue.
Peppermint - a woman’s family is murdered and she’s the only survivor, when the court system fails her she takes matters into her own hands. Typical revenge movie that doesn’t have her pulling punches, still has her throwing them though.
Columbiana - a young girl watches as her family is killed by the local crime family, she escapes to America where she dedicates herself to becoming a contract killer in order to have her revenge. Male gaze heavy, leans more on the spectrum of punisher with its violence.
If you have time for a TV series I highly recommend Terminal List, military dude suspects a conspiracy after a mission goes wrong and his family is murdered.

Peoples upbringings aren’t the only ways they can be traumatised. They could be abused by someone outside the family, witness or be victim to a horrible accident, have someone they love die suddenly, get diagnosed with an illness or disease, or even getting bullied can be so severe it causes trauma. Sometimes trauma doesn’t happen until adulthood.

No it's not just you. Blog but I was best friends with this girl all throughout highschool who was like a bpd type, constant dramatic stunts, ditching people for no reason, running away from her house to sleep downtown with homeless drug addicted men twice her age, half assed suicide attempts, trooning out first to nonbinary, then male, then trans masc/fem whatever the fuck that is. I'm not friends with her anymore, but now I see she identifies as a rat boy whatever that means. But anyway I see posts of hers talking about having a "narcissistic mother" which is hilarious because I knew her mom when we were friends and she talked about her alot, she was never "narcissistic" she was extremely kind, patient, and worried about her daughter. She would even call me sometimes to see if she was with me when she'd run away. Even in highschool she would complain about her being a bit overbearing out of concern but never what she claims about her now. I think it's a new trend for gendies or spoonies to want to have some tough upbringing or something. But I've noticed that a lot as well.

unprocessed emotion ends up as traumatic, and with all our societal issues (growing loneliness, role of internet, etc.) more people are probably not processing their emotions as well. i think for many of these types, there's a lot of insecurity and relational issues.

one thing about abusers is that they are commonly very good at hiding their issues, and can and do in fact love their victims. my mom loves us, but she did get violent with my sister as a teen and try to control us.

No. 1694802

I’m the op and I don’t mean parents who beat their kids. Most of the people I talked to never had any issue with their parents, never were raped or emotionally abused, and attribute their trauma to random childhood friends. Think of growing apart from a friend, except these people would claim that “everyone leaves me, I have an abandonment issue!!!” like dude everyone loses friends at some point. Just because they moved on doesn’t mean you’re on the same wavelength of codependency that someone with actual BPD has. Idk why these people want to be traumatized so bad but they also seem to ignore my suggestions to go to therapy so it’s likely just them wanting to be a victim and complain.

No. 1694805

No it's not that she was hiding abuse there literally was none, she says her mom is a narcissistic abuser because she was strict, stifled her creativity, was ~transphobic~, and controlling. But that was literally just her mom setting a curfew for her when we were teens, not letting her hangout with randoms until she met them, asking her not to wear things that would end up in a dress code violation at school, her not wanting her hanging out downtown with older men, her telling her not to smoke weed in her house, and not letting her get on testosterone until she was 18. Even in highschool her complaints were the same, if she was hitting her she would've been telling everyone about it. I remember her mom raised her voice with her twice and she wouldn't stop saying how her mom verbally abused her, I was with her on the phone during one of the times and it was literally just her mom crying and saying "please not in the house, I am begging you, if you're going to smoke just please not in the house" and it was because her room was next to her little sisters and the smoke would drift into her room, and that was what she considered "verbal abuse" kek

you can make your arguments against it by how you define love or such, but both abusers and victims themselves will believe they love each other. we can't get into abusers' heads and say they don't feel love for their victims. removing this layer of understanding makes it harder for victims to recognize themselves.

losing childhood friends and not processing it is hard and can be traumatizing in that way of simply not being processed. in a lot of these cases it's probably more than simply that, but like i said it reflects more issues around insecurity and relationships they have in their lives. it's annoying people use psychiatric language and diagnoses to describe basic emotions, but that's the language that comes off as meaningful in society to communicate distress where distress is regularly pathologized.

i was going to add to >>1694798 that it may or may not be the case she was abused and i only wanted to make a reminder that how people treat others does not necessarily extend to how they treat other people. she does sound awful and immature don't get me wrong but i still would assume the mother failed as a parent or is disconnected from her daughter to end up like this. a lot of what therapists critical of the affirmation model mention is genuinely bettering and building stronger relationships with kids, regardless if they continue to identify as trans or not.

I don't know tbh it seems like a convenient scapegoat to just blame the mother. The fact is sometimes a parent can do everything right and their kid can still turn out shitty. She had 2 other kids who turned out just fine, my ex friend is the outlier and I think it's because she fell into so many shitty online communities when we were young, troonism, pro ana, pro self harm, pro drug communities, columbiners.

I hope you don't have a serious condition and if you do, I hope you manage to get the medical attention you deserve. Take care.

You can get it dissolved, that's what I said. You can't do that for a bbl and a breast implant has to be taken out surgically which are both much more serious than dissolving a filler, even if its migrated.

It might in a minority of cases, but this is an anomaly as fillers are generally made out of substances found in our own bodies. Your own body can have an immune response against itself so it's not something that only happens with injections or foreign bodies.

I'm tired of the misinformation on fillers and plastic surgery that some anons like to scare others with. Nobody should get filler unless they absolutely 100% want to and it shouldn't be a prerequisite to feeling pretty but it's not like their face will melt if they get injections, and plastic surgery isn't inherently evil (unless you want acid attack and dog mauling victims to walk around being stared at like freaks for the rest of their lives).

You'd think they'd have access to the best surgeries, best professionals that wouldn't leave them botched. And they do because their fat transfers look pretty good for how large their getting them, and their breast augmentations look natural and non botched, they're skin is always clear and their hair perfect, but the filler always looks fucked.

You only say this because prominent botched celebrities are the only ones that you know got it for sure. There's lots of people around you every day that have had filler but you can't tell. And it's not like they'll tell you, because you're going to call them a fake plastic bimbo anyway. Because as much as plastic surgery is pushed, people are still bullying those who do get it instead of the doctors for shilling it and there are social repercussions for admitting to having it.
Because 1) they inject too much in too short of a time period and the doctors they go to aren't very good at it, 2) they start too young, 3) there is a different standard wrt what is considered a good job in different parts of the world and Hollywood is a league of its own when it comes to beauty standards which is why so many perfectly beautiful stars go under the knife in the first place. Just like some people love "Russian lips", others find them awful looking.

Ty for explaining, most of what you said makes a lot of sense. But I have to disagree with them going to doctors who aren't very good at it, there's no way people like the Kardashians or rich others are going to shitty doctors. The rest of their surgery is decent looking except the fillers, same with a lot of other celebrities. Although like you said it makes sense theirs looks fucked cause they started too young, got too much too fast, and you brought up the standards being different in Hollywood which makes a lot of sense, like they probably get a lot of filler to look good in shooped photos and on their tv show as opposed to looking good face to face or walking by on the street.

>If you want to see normal-looking filler, you can go to the photo gallery and testimonials page of a good clinic and look for what interests you. Lots of nice examples and lots of perfectly normal looking people.

The only thing makes me sus about that is they usually only use photos taken hours, days, or weeks after the filler is done and I've heard that it can look very different over the course of a month or so. Also because they're a business they're only going to show their best results as a sort of advertisement. That being said I probably will get filler eventually because I have pretty deep circles under my eyes that are sort of hollowing out already, and one of my eyes has a tear trough but not the other and it drives me nuts kek

The undereyes are one of the worst possible places to get filler, you’re so ignorant. The skin around the eyes is the most delicate skin on the face, and expanding it by injecting a ton of shit beneath causes premature wrinkles and sagging. The weight of the filler pulls at and drags down the skin around the eyes. It’s funny that you used that as an example because a lot of plastic surgeons won’t inject the undereyes due to the risk involved.

My first time I got nasolabial filler which did migrate because it's soft tissue and an area that moves a lot. I got it redone at another clinic after a year and that time around the doctor injected the cheekbone only, but the filler was reabsorbed. Then I went to a third clinic and this time they did it right, it looked wonderful. This was all with one to 1,5 years in-between btw, and that was the only procedure I've ever had (so no Botox, surgeries and so on).

Good to know, I've been thinking about the nasolabial area as well but that's the one that scares me the most because of people like Kylie who have that sort of cat like puffy upper mouth and cheek area kek. But it's nice to hear about positive experiences with it, my cousin got hers done once as well and it looked awesome, very subtle too. But she didn't get any more after that and it sort of dissolved over time so I'm not sure if she wasn't happy with it or just didn't want to continue getting it done. Every 6 months seems really frequent to me too, if I were to get it done I'd probably let it dissolve almost completely before getting more just to avoid any potential migration or overfilling. And yeah I've heard about how difficult the eye area can be, and that tear troughs are especially difficult to treat and can actually make it worse sometimes so I probably wouldn't get any eye stuff done until much later in life. Thanks so much for explaining this to me and letting me know about your experience with it.

>Drawing on government data and published studies, they found Black and mixed race women of African descent face disadvantages rooted in racist assumptions in medical education, policymaking, and health service delivery.

>Medical textbooks, for example, teach childbirth based on a pelvic shape common to European women yet highly variable among women of other ethnicities, increasing their risk of obstetric intervention, the report said.

>Many doctors also learn, incorrectly, that Black people feel less pain because of thicker skin and are less likely to experience postpartum hemorrhage because their blood clots more quickly, the report added.

>In one study Trawalter and her collaborators designed, members of the NCAA Division I medical staff read a case concerning a student athlete with a torn ACL. Participants were randomly assigned either a Black student or a white one, with everything else about the case remaining the same. They then answered questions about the case (How painful was the injury, on a scale of 1-4?) and questions designed to measure their own racial attitudes (Do you agree or disagree? Irish, Italians, Jews, and other minorities overcame prejudice and worked their way up. Blacks should do the same without any special favors.)

>As the researchers predicted, participants generally assigned lower pain ratings to the Black students. Surprisingly, however, there was no correlation between participants’ answers to the questions about their racial attitudes and the pain ratings they gave Black patients (relative to white patients). In other words, “even participants who have very positive racial attitudes show this bias,” Trawalter said.

Maybe you weren't taught that, but it is a recognized problem. Ignoring and denying it helps no one. Tons of black women have talked about experiencing this from doctors, too.

This is false, even European women have all sorts of pelvis shapes and they're all taught in faculties. Pelvis shape depends more on a person's height and build(like as in tall and lean vs shorter - not weight) than race.
Though as you can see, most of these are probably American medical malpractices. Not hocking given Americans tend to be racist and opportunistic regardless of profession.

Depending on the filler used it goes inside the dermis, deep dermis or subcutis and sits there until it is dissolved by your body, which can take more or less time depending on the filler. Filler molecules are too big to penetrate cells.

>it's another "europe has no problems with racism or sexism, everything is all americans blahblahblah" episode

>Racism operates through complex mechanisms, compromising social support which has an effect on health status and access to health care (Karlsen & Nazroo, 2002b). Institutional racism can also lead to the identification and reification of ethnic minority groups as different (Miles, 1989), as well as their social and economic exclusion (Paradies et al., 2015). In health care, racism has been shown to be associated with health service use outcomes such as lack of adherence to treatment uptake and delay in receiving adequate health care (Ben et al., 2017). In Sweden, for example, foreign-born patients have been shown to be less likely to receive adequate care in regard to heart failure medications as well as receiving lower rates of beta blockers than medically recommended (National Board of Health and Welfare, 2008). Asian and Black patients were found to be less likely to receive kidney transplant compared with White patients in a study in 36 European countries (Tjaden et al., 2016). Perceived racism is associated with lack of trust in health care and with refraining from seeking health care (Wamala et al., 2007).

>The conundrum of accessibility to health care resources was described by another participant, a Swedish woman of Somali origin who discussed how her labor pain was not taken seriously, leading to the worst sort of outcome, despite her repeated efforts to get help.

>Sometime back I was pregnant and I went to the maternity/delivery hospital because of severe pains and they sent me back home, saying that I was not ready (to give birth). The next day I stopped feeling the baby’s movement and the contractions stopped, so I was worried (. . .) I went to the hospital that evening again, this time I had excruciating pains and they told me that the baby is asleep and you are only 5 centimetres open. They called the doctor and they ran some tests and told me that they think the baby is either dead in my stomach or it is sleeping. So we will check to confirm and then see what to do, either to operate you when the baby is sleeping and/or do a procedure if the baby is dead.

>The participant also spoke of other women with Somali background in Sweden who had lost their babies, as they were not offered adequate antenatal care. Even though it is not possible to prove that this rationing of care is a result of “race” as it is often veiled, it works through invisible processes of (non)selection, with tangible effects on individuals. Often minority ethnic women’s expressions of pain in health care encounters are seen as exaggerated and overly emotional (Bowler, 1993) and therefore rationed as a non-priority. We argue that experience such as that described by the above-mentioned participant should not merely be seen as an isolated case but should be situated in the broader context in Sweden where it has been shown that women from Sub-Saharan African countries have statistically significant higher perinatal mortality rate compared with the general population (Essén et al., 2000).

And as the other anon said, this isn't even about race alone. Women all over the world have had fucked up experiences. Plastic surgery is one of the worst, it's often where you go if you want to get lied to, botched, and then gaslit.

You could maybe make something similar with a low weight yarn (anywhere from super fine to light) and using it to make either a crochet or knit chain. The Ana Luisa site says the cord is nylon, and nylon yarn is easily findable. For the charm, I was able to find ones similar to that on Amazon by searching " rhinestone pendant link" and "rhinestone connector". I was able to find those the little cylinder in the middle by searching "barrel clasp". If I were to do this, I would make two chains and just tie them into the pendant.

A post made by an anon asking if she's still a virgin after being eaten out made me wonder… At what point do lesbians consider having lost their virginity?

No. 1698533

I think it's the same across all sexualities. There's usually a delineation where manual sex (handjobs, fingering) and oral sex (blowjobs, cunnilingus, anilingus) do not constitute loss of virginity, but intercourse or frotting do. Once you get into less common sex acts (figging, mammary intercourse, etc), or conservative/Christian couples who specifically use intercrural sex to "stay virginal", is where it gets a little hazy. Essentially, two schools of thought: the first is that only "genital to genital contact" results in loss of virginity. The second is engaging in any sex acts means someone is no longer a virgin.
So for lesbians, either any form of sex is a loss of virginity (including getting eaten out as in your example), or she is no longer a virgin once she engages in tribadism or vaginal penetration with a strap-on. Pick your poison.

No. 1698936

You can use conditioner with oily hair, just don't put it directly onto your roots or bangs if you have them—just put it on the ends to help avoid excess oil. I don't think conditioner can actually damage your hair if that's what you mean, iirc it just coats the hair strands. Only deep conditioners and hair masks actually penetrate deeper than the outside cuticle layer of the hair.

No. 1699014

ohhhh I see, and it depends I guess? If you hair is really dry at the ends it could cause weakness in the strands which would lead to breakage and split ends so there could be some damage. I doubt lack of conditioner would cause anything major though.

No. 1699156

I am not totally sure (hilarious since I was so badly abused by an ex scrote) but I THINK the difference is that emotional abuse is cheating, saying things about your appearance and abilities, telling you you are being manipulative when you cry at their abuse, humiliating you etc, where mental is hard gaslighting and things like keeping you awake for hours to fuck with your perception of reality, forcing you to go off meds you need etc. Or maybe I am retarded and emotional/mental abuse is the same thing kek

I’d say emotional abuse is emotional neglect, invalidation, negging, causing emotional pains in general. Emotional abuse is more in personal relationships. Mental abuse can be unpersonal, from school/work, society, like relentless pressure and demands. Mental abuse can include terrorizing and torture. Physical violence is a form of mental abuse.

I know this moid isn’t getting therapy to fix his issues so how is it that they’re still dating this long? Was I really the problem all along? Was it just our relationship that made him fucked up? I guess his new gf is into being strangled and being hurt during sex. I don’t think he’d be happy with it being all consensual though.

Not really, the concept of melancholia has been around since Ancient Greece as a way of attempting to explain depression-like symptoms and basically many cultures historically have some evidence of people committing suicide and experiencing lethargy/low moods, with all sorts of different explanations as to why. I imagine the way that people interpret their own feelings of depression changed after things like the DSM were invented and the concept of 'mental disorders' became public knowledge, but the idea that depression is purely some modern problem that can always be solved by doing manual labor and not thinking too hard about it doesn't seem to be accurate imo. Having some structure to your life and keeping busy can definitely be helpful but lots of people living today are rural farmers and there's no way all of them are thriving mentally.

Fair but can anybody tell me why it’s wrong? For example, if your boyfriend cheats on you and you tell him you’ll kill yourself why is that bad?

Speaking purely from a hypothetical standpoint, I’ve never been cheated on or worried about it.

No. 1699973

Oh for more additional context I think it’s reasonable for women in physically/financially/etc abusive relationships to cheat to get away if they can’t escape their abuser. In that case I don’t think the abuser threatening suicide is ok. But that’s not the situation I mean in my question

No. 1699974

No. 1699976

NTA, it's insanely pathetic to commit suicide over a moid (like they're such a fucking loss lmao) and a complete and utter overreaction, it indicates the person is not of sound mind.

That's a very reasonable way to think about it.

Not to derail too much from my initial question or to twist your words, but don't people commit suicide over trauma, like sexual assault, CSA or wartime PTSD?

Those awful things my family said and did to me, or when they ignored me and I still feel like I need to ignore my own needs and sometimes think back to how they made it sound like I was a piece of shit even as a kid? OK, that's just like your opinion man and that shit wasn't true, isn't true and that situation cannot happen again and I am my own fucking person, who is responsible of my own emotions and future, past wasn't my fault, it doesn't benefit me in any way to slip into the depression trauma spiral. Yeah I'm not at the same place in life as my peers but hey, they didn't go through what I did and I live for myself and put myself first always. It took over a decade to get to where I am now but I think the main things are: It cannot happen again, the awful things done and said have already been done, even though it feels illogical to you, it wasn't your fault, they shouldn't have done that, it wasn't normal. The only one who suffers from you feeling worse than others is you, fake it till you make it if you must, but your brain telling you you somehow suck because others treated you like shit?

There is a frog hiding in my living room. Does anyone know the best way to catch it? One of my cats wants to chase it and I don't want it to die. I tried catching it with wet gloves but it slipped out of my hand and it's now underneath the furniture.

No. 1700678

wet unpowdered gloves or wet clean hands for more friction (frogs are usually slippery themselves though)
please don't let them die. if you can't catch them for shit, place a water bowl on the floor so they at least have hydration, and then capture them once they get in the bowl

This may make me sound ignorant, but genuinely, why doesn't the British museum just display their own artifacts and history? Over 90% of the museum is from other countries. I understand that imperialism and colonialism was a big part of British history, but they hang onto these artifacts super hard while not displaying any actual British history

No. 1700754

It worked. When I went back in the room the frog was in the bowl of water. I placed a sheet of paper over the bowl and took the frog outside. I put the bowl down on some wet soil underneath some plants.

>frogs are really not suited well for big arid bright dusty rooms

It's 95% humidity where I live right now and it's cold. I think the frog may have come inside because it's damp and warm. I initially thought that one of the cats had brought it in but the frog was completely unharmed.

I mean there's so many fuckin museums in Britain despite it being a pretty small country so they may as well diversify what they show. And like there's so many museums in Britain that go hard on specifics of British history, a lot of area history so it's actually kinda rare in my experience to have a museum that focuses on anything else.

It sounds silly because it's called "The British Museum" but it's purposefully multicultural, that much is clear on its website. A giant collection, constant exhibitions. It's its USP in the most tourist heavy areas of Britain.

I vented already about this but I wanted to ask something since I’m a new gym goer (ok i’m not but i used to be morbidely obese)
Why are women at the gym so rude to fat girls or chubby girls who are working their ass off?! They just take over whatever their boyfriend taught them admittedly look fit and gorgeous after training for a “short time” (ahum years) and then look down on fat girls who are doing their work out good. Why do that when you look good? Everyone begins somewhere and if you had the privilege to be fit as a kid ok good for you.

Anon, I think it might all be in your head. I get frustrated with little gym bunny girls constantly taking videos in their cute outfits sometimes because I’m an athlete and I go to the gym to train hard for several hours wearing non-cute stuff lmao but they aren’t paying attn to me and I have to brush it off bc it’s not hurting me that they exist. They wanna take selfies, check their “pump” in the mirror, and do lower body exercise only kek. I can promise they’re not thinking about anyone but themselves and maybe their bf if they came w him. As someone who is in the “extreme fit” (I feel like such a douchelady saying that I’m so sorry) category myself, I personally don’t have any hate or judgment for chubby/big girls at the gym. I genuinely love seeing women get after it. If you are being legit treated poorly at your gym tho, maybe find a different one!

I got into a conversation with a beautiful fit woman and she seems so nice, but she tbh gave bad advice about form of squatting, like that i shouldnt have my knees over toes (even though my torso is short as fuck). And then the less fit woman (but not fat at least) butted in and said i should buy an elastic band etc…and i was grateful about that. Until she said shit like “ur squat isnt the worst” (even though it was good) and “you’re probs not flexible enough for a squat” (even though i can squat and do the split?…) and then contradicts herself when she said she squats differently from the other girl because every body is different…idk, her tone of voice was also just rude. I also dislike the stares from fit women.

Isn't this like squatting 101? This is what I was taught for my whole life. Not saying it's the 100% right way of doing it because I'm not a fitness pro but this is the most common tip people receive about squatting, back straight and knees not going over toes.

No. 1702097

nayrt but it seems more to be a general guideline like the "bend your knees to 90°" instead of a hard and fast rule. i see people whose knees go over their toes all the time but it's by 10-20° or so, which seems to be accepted as ok

Esl too but I think it's the way sometimes women's skin gets better, hair thicker and they all around look healthier when pregnant.

This discussion has been going on for ages and I'm surprised they haven't let it go, every time I go on meta is the same discussion and I wonder if they were ever a mod to begin with

I’m gonna get shit for this but here we go. It’s common for both sexes. Even other long-term monogamous animals (birds) of both genders have been shown to frequently cheat on each other. Males might do it at a higher rate than us, but with women’s increased sexual and socio-echonomical freedom we are catching up with them. It sucks, but working on your co-dependency and internalizing that all humans have the capability of acting selfish helps.

I used to be in a relationship where the sex was mediocre but I stoically held on, while he ended up cheating on me. Right now I have a new moid where sex is off the charts good and he’s an all around great person, but honestly now that I am no longer with my oneitis, even I feel kind of intimidated by the prospect of only being with this guy for the rest of my life. Like I love good sex and it’s not something that keeps me up at night, but will it be as good 20 years down the road kek. Who knows. Maybe it keeps on giving, maybe we lose the passion. I think it’s better to have realistic expectations, patience with your partner and communicate your needs, but even then one of us might still end up cheating one day or falling in love with someone else. Of course people should be held accountable for their actions and cheating is selfish and wrong, but no matter how much it sucks it’s also super normal. I think you become more pragmatic about these things as you age.

people are freaking out about birthrates, and i don't get the problem really. of course i know that elderly people need to be taken care of, so people are concerned that there's not enough offspring to support the eldery, especially in Japan. but it's not like there are no solutions. we've reached the age that I've always predicted to come, where robots are capable of many tasks normally given to human entities. why not just embrace the robots and allow the potato peelers care for old people? wages in that sort of work should be increased of course, but overall it just seems like a natural progression society doesn't want to accept. for Japan particularly, they have almost 40,000 orphans in their system. I don't think a declining birthrate is a problem when it's evident that so many Japanese people do not want children to begin with, forcing those who are born anyway into a difficult life. so my question is, am i stupid for thinking like this?

I mean the idea that there's not enough to look after all the oldies is false, there's just not enough incentive. Working in the care sector is bleak asf, low pay and residents are essentially allowed to assault you in certain places. If there was more pay, these oldies would be golden.

But no you're not dumb to think like this, the "birthrate low bad" is only applicable to politicians really because it means they either have give higher incentive to make babies or burn in the long run. No matter where they lean, they don't want to do it, they don't want to face reality so they blame feminism or the current generation and so on so forth.

Funny because I used to be a care worker and people who don't know me well always try to argue with
>but who will care for you when you're old!
>we need more babies!
etc when I say I won't have kids. In my country they import people from the Philippines and Africa to care for the elderly because supposedly there aren't enough people here to care for them. Except there are, the job just pays extremely poorly. You get treated like shit by everyone: families of the customer, managers, the customer themselves. Lots of them are super racist and difficult and act like little kids, and the carers aren't taught our local language well at all. The demands people make are crazy and we had very little to work with since whoever owns these companies just wants to make money.
I got out of there as soon as I could, the hours, the shit salary and abuse weren't worth it. My ex who I dated at the time was a software engineer and his company gave him so many things for fucking free. I was extremely jealous because we got nothing.
The families and the patients are super ungrateful and bossy, and most families won't give a shit about their mother or grandma or visit very often at all. Women had friends in the home, those who weren't super demented at least. Old men were lonely and some were really disgusting towards the workers.
I don't care that we're having less babies, frankly. I'll go in peace when I get there, I'd never stay in a care home like that ever again or put another human through having to deal with my runny geriatric shits.

I have dark hair and some facial features that make people assume I'm a foreigner, I've had it in school where only muslim girls wanted to be friends until they found out I wasn't muslim to people in stores speaking English to me out of the random. People can think what they want but I'm so sick of being treated like a minority when I'm not and also be rejected by minorities once they see my last name. This is so stupid but does anyone experience this as well?
Cute nonna! I think it will never look super feminine but adding a cute belt and a white top like a turtleneck or a cropped frilly one though the latter might make it a bit too sadbbydoll. Also some layered necklaces, a fuzzy jacket with it would look nice too for when it's colder. Best of luck!

No. 1704273

I would change the style of the top. Either a tighter sweater, or a buttoned shirt with a sweater vest (yes this can look feminine - like a cute bookish feminine). Personally I like jewel tones, white, cream, or earthy colors with khakis. Anything too bright ends up looking strange or like a uniform imo. So maybe maroon, navy, grassy green (this could be brighter), a dark mahogany brown, or black. Then add a delicate necklace, maybe?

I don't think you need to add pastels or frills to make it feminine but of course those are other options. I struggle wearing pastel colors because they make me look ill, but if you have the undertones for it, maybe a newborn duck yellow would be interesting.

I feel like the whole "more or less attractive guy" conversation revolving around who's likely to treat you better is just damned if you do, damned if you don't. Yeah you could make the argument of your picrel, but I've seen just as often the argument that dating a less attractive guy than yourself is going to give him a big head and cause him to think you two actually ARE on the same level.

look up successful people in your field and see what they wear. Look at conference photos or work event photos and note what people tend to wear. That can help.

Best not to show cleavage or wear very short miniskirts to work stuff, but that's self-explanatory. I do wear skirts above the knee but they aren't inappropriate and I usually would pair them with high denier tights. I'm extremely careful with the tops I wear bc I have a large chest for my frame (hate it). I wear shells and camisoles under cardigans.

I'd argue its because human names sound uncanny. Theres people who name their pets human names but most are given nicknames or should we say, "pet names" typically if someone names their pet with a human name its after someone. I knew a couple on yt who named their old dog Jerry after Jerry Seinfeld. Also, it's more fun to name your pet something playful or just plain stupid, as they're an animal and dont care.

It should be taught in any basic computing class but also you can just follow textbooks on your own, I've done a few classes but never needed a teacher's input.

I learned mostly on the job. really the best method is just to learn from prior spreadsheets like >>1705707 and google when I have a vague idea of what I want a spreadsheet or formula to do but no clue how to execute it.
for basic stuff, lookup keyboard shortcuts for excel as a start
for more advanced stuff, learn how to do lookup formulas, pivot tables, conditional formatting, and maybe macros to impress.
If you get stuck on a formula, you can use the Evaluate Formula button to help you out too.
also people like and appreciate aesthetically pleasant documents even if they don't necessarily demand it. some of them may think you're a total excel genius even if you just did something as simple as making a spreadsheet look clean lol. Try to make your font and color choices look nice, coherent, and consistent. If you have the time or inclination, play around a bit with colors when making your tables and graphics.

I don’t know how many nonas follow women’s soccer or watched the World Cup etc, but the level of standom for some of the players is off the charts. The phenomenon I’m talking about is obsessive fangirling from lesbians. The thing that gets me is that the hardcore fans of any given player are often like 250lbs and as non athletic as can be. What kind of cognitive dissonance to insert yourself into that world- stop a player for a photo and autograph, tag them in the photo where you look like a dreadful mess and they look like… well… an athlete? What kind of gratification do stans get? To me it would be humiliating. I wouldn’t want to be seen, let alone if what I value is peak performance, beauty, athleticism etc- then how come they are not trying to aspire to that for themselves? Do they have no concept of self? I don’t get it. Any nonas with experience of fandoms in general care to shed any light?

I have never seen that kind of stanning before. It makes sense if if they're stanning idols since idols are just meant to be eyecandies and look pretty for fans irregardless of the fan's appearances but stanning athletes when they don't even play sports, be fit, or work out is something else…

No. 1705976

It sounds like you only thought about this because it's female fans… fat gross moids have been fans of hot women and athletic men for eternity so I don't think it's weird if the occasional woman is too. Maybe they're attracted to the soccer players but just as an unattainable fantasy, maybe they used to be sporty in their youth and got fat later, maybe they just dgaf or lack self awareness.

Personally I don't see how anyone could be truly happy while fat but I don't think women should hold back from enjoying things because of how they might look in photos.

No. 1705993

What are you talking about, fat and unathletic is the vast majority of moids who're sports fanatics too. All men I know who're super into watching football and formula racing are either young men who spend most of their free time gaming or fat old men with beer bellies. Basically the whole idea of watching sports is that it's entertainment for people who don't lead active lifestyles, because you know those people are outdoors instead of being glued to screens watching matches on their weekends.

This is only a problem for you because it's women's sports.

The obsession with fatness as some specifically horrible and degrading state on this website, to the point farmers on /g/ regularly admit to fantasies and shame regarding fat fetishism makes me roll my eyes, Not to mention all the women with EDs here too. I am not saying you are one of those women but your language around being fat as so degrading doesn't seem so far off from their understanding.

These fans are fat and probably do have food addiction and control issues, but being fat is not uncommon nowadays. Obsessive fan behavior and being fat is common among both sexes, it's simply seeing sports as another game and hobby and then the element of sexual attraction/waifuism for some. Beauty is not a specific value for the fans, but the players and their skill are the focus for these kind of superfans; the actual attractiveness of the players is a minimum requirement. Plenty of these people, male and female, will have autistic traits and lack self-awareness. Or hell, simply not care how they look, watching sports is a hobby and they can live vicariously through the players without desiring to play that sport or be fit themselves.

Does anyone else get this feeling that cats are capable of judging character? I consider it a superstition of mine, being a big cat lover. I once had an abusive man come into my life when I was a child and my beloved cat that I had had since I was a toddler immediately turned aggressive and snarled at this man and never fully settled in with him. With other people he was normally just a big cuddly dope. Even long after the abusive man was gone another man moved in and got along really well with him and this man turned out to be trustworthy. Problem is, I have no logical explanation as to how a cat can judge a human's moral integrity, nor do I even have enough evidence to establish any connections. It's all just anecdotal. Still though, could there be any truth to it? Or could there possibly be any way a cat could assess someone's character, and if so, by what metric are they measuring their character? Is this an instinct they developed in order to better select a household of caring humans to ensure their survival? This is such a crazy belief.

Was the cat aggressive from the amount he saw him? Because often aggressive men will hurt cats in secret since they hate them.
Being both prey and predator makes cats very sensitive to reading body language and situations, so if someone is bad, they'll react long before humans pick up on the subtle signals.

No. 1706949

He was immediately aggressive upon meeting him as well as maintaining his aggression. The man hated the cat a lot too. He always had this thinly veiled spite for him because he was a fucking man baby. But good point. It stands to reason that cats can read human or other animal body language and have to be alert, especially around new people. So they might be hypersensitive to little cues. I wonder what kind of body language it is that sets them off. Maybe it's a certain tension in the person who is faking an amicable persona. Lying causes stress, and when a person is tense or stressed as well as unfamiliar that might be what sets off the alarm bells.

I'm seeing a therapist next week, and I really really need it. But I don't know how weird I can get with what I admit to her. Because I have weird and stupid problems, and I need help with them, but at the same time I don't want to do a kirbyanon (not that I have anything quite that bad but it's still weird). Do any of you have therapists? How much detail about your issues do you share? Or how do you talk "around" the real topic while still getting the point across?

No. 1707550

If I don’t want to share something specific I tell them I’m not going to share the specifics because it’s something too personal (or maybe I’ll say I’m not ready to yet but then they always ask about it like every session and I feel pressured to spill.) I think it’s fine to just have a hard line for some stuff and talk about it only as much as you want to and ask for help with any aspects of it that you feel are a problem (which is what a therapist can hopefully help with anyway.) They don’t need to know all your personal secrets, some things are just for you. But they get confused if you lie so that’s no good either.

No. 1707553

full honesty is best in therapeutic relationships, but you should get a feel for how useful and intelligent they are first. they might not be a good fit at all unfortunately, but don't get discouraged. i tried being honest when i had one, but as an autist i had trouble understanding myself and communicating, and she still never fully got me. our sessions became vent sessions that contributed to me never making major life changes i needed to. you will probably have better luck if you have specific goals in mind. I like to recommend this article on therapy.

yeah that's the problem, by work schedule and poorness really prevent me from "shopping around" so I'm just hoping the only one I found will be okay.

No. 1707564

also, sameanon, but what I find hilariously stupid is to be accepted into therapy I had to promise that I was not actively suicidal with a plan, and if I reveal that I can be sent o an inpatient facility. But If I went to an inpatient facility I would lose my job and not be able to get another one due to a red flagged resume (thru no fault of my own, i got scammed at my last job but that's another story) and acquire so much medical debt (I live in a terrible state for hospital and medical debt) that my life would be ruined anyway. So it's like, if you want to kill yourself, we can't help you even though we would probably do better at helping you than inpatient, and instead we will send you inpatient which will guarantee you will kill yourself. Makes sense. makes so much sense.

I'm sorry to hear that nonna. I don't like to tell suicidal anons to please not kill yourself, because it feels like it minimizes your pain as we don't know all the details, but I hope you find some peace. I see why you don't want to say anything about your current levels of ideation. I hope in a roundabout you can express how you feel. I'm glad you're giving it a try. There's a book recently released about suicide research called "When it is Darkest", it's on libgen and you might find it reflects your own experience of being suicidal.
>And I wish I could go in with goals but I am unable to come up with any, since I have so many problems that are sort of inherent to living.
That can be something you bring up, learning how to manage and cope in the context of your life, to figure out what changes you can make and accept what you can't. I hope it doesn't sound like I am minimizing your suffering but making peace with a shit situation is often all people can do.

No. 1707582

>I hope it doesn't sound like I am minimizing your suffering but making peace with a shit situation is often all people can do.
Not at all, i appreciate your response, I feel the same way about "making peace" with a shit situation. I sort of want to lay something like that out as The Goal to my therapy, specifically
>I am here because I need to figure out how to continue living without killing myself for at least a few more decades. Outliving my parents is how I would define success.
but I have a a bad feeling that most therapists won't jive with such a "negative" goal, even though it's genuine, probably also because it suggests that I am actively suicidal and ruh-roh we can't help you if you say that!

one time my most recent ex and i were in his car with his mother in the backseat and he opened his browser on his phone to look up an alternate restaurant to the one we wanted to go to. i believe he'd been looking at porn the night before because he suddenly jumped to turn the volume in the car down and that caused me to look up from my phone and see "MOTHERLESS.COM - …" on the car's display for a couple seconds before he quickly (i assume) swiped the tab away.

i hate porn and refuse to look up the site. i didn't even know he watched it, because he'd told me early on that he didn't. my best friend looked it up and simply told me "do. not. look it up." and that she wiped her browser history after she did so, and she never does that. i hung out with my guy friend of 2 years today and when i told him about the situation in the car, he grimaced and said, "like the revenge porn site?" he's 30 and said he used that site infrequently when he was 16, and it was sketchy. lots of omegle camshow reuploads, etc. my best friend told me the other day that MOTHERLESS is "a favorite with 4chan users because it's easy to find CP on there."

Technically, yes. It involves a lot of work though, I know people cut out wefts and sew it back in a certain way. It's been a minute since I've cosplayed, but I think the reason why normal wigs cannot is due to wefts showing.
There's also those clip ins, but they're heavy and kinda ugly.

Will food prices ever go back down? I've seen things increase price multiple times the past two years alone so why would they bother lowering prices once the "economy is stable" or whatever?

No. 1708128

No. Food has the ability to go down, but farmers work together to elevate prices and will destroy excess stock before lowering prices. So unless you made it illegal to destroy good food, it won't happen.

No. 1708172

Nausea is supposed to last for the first trimester. However that can be different for some women as one can feel nauseous in their secound trimester or even throughout their whole pregnancy. So if a woman feels contiously nauseous she can get medicine that's safe for pregnancy or she only gets nauseous in the morning, hence morning sickness.
A side note a pregnant woman may even feel nauseous around certain odors, due to stress and/or fatigue

Diarrhea is usually the result of food infection if your talking about food-borne disease. Chicken can carry Salmonella if its tainted which causes food sickness. "Food sickness" is caused by the endo/exo toxin of the bacteria, usually people have diarrhea and purge all the excess bad bacteria with infection but sickness is more dangerous. Sickness is more serious and usually causes serious abdominal pains and vomiting, it usually takes much longer to pass up to a week, while infection takes a few hours to a day. "Food infection" is caused by too much of symbiotic bacteria that is present in a healthy gut microbiome. Too much symbiotic bacteria leads to a build up of metabolic waste of those symbiotic species and as a result inflammation and discomfort in the GI tract/diarrhea.

Of course there could also be other causes; if your having your period that can cause GI cramps and diarrhea. Oil and salt isn't going to cause diarrhea on its own unless your really glugging down the oil and brining your rice in the dead sea.

I never got diagnosed with vulvodynia or vaginismus because when I went to the gynecologist she laughed at me that I was too young to have these things, but…
Basically I'll just have a burning or agitated like pain that will either just be inside or outside of my vagina. I think mine might be partially psychological because stress does make my pain worse. Everyone advises you to wear cotton underwear, used water based lubes, don't rub soap on your labia, etc… And I follow all those rules but sometimes I still have bad days. I think the thing that helped me the most was not using an "all natural" lube that was actually burning slightly. I switched to sliquid so I could try putting a diva cup in and it worked out okay. Other than that I don't have a lot of advice. Sorry nonna.

it's always been considered ok in japan from what I know. overseas I think it shifted when liking nerdy/weeby stuff started becoming mainstream and due to that it became easy to buy premade cosplay of basically any character. before it was just mega autist weebs into cosplaying so they were gatekeepy and took pride and enjoyment in making their own cosplay. costhots definitely aided in the shift since most of them are really only hopping on the trend to make money and could care less about weebshit.
