Is Japanese mayo really all that different from other countries'? Just saw someone post that Hijikata was right all along.
It has a lighter/more delicate taste. It's best for savory dishes or along with other sauces, like okonomiyaki sauce etc etc>>1690407
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''

What the fuck kind of personality type falls into gendie bs? In b4 chronically online, most farmers are chronically online too but why aren't we retarded in that way. I literally have never ever thought about my "gender identity" or felt like basing my entire personality or online persona around screaming pronouns. What exactly is wrong with tifs and tims? I saw that tiktok of that frog/frogs idiot crying about being called a lady at a bar and it just had me wondering what the fuck kind of mental illness do these people have.

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?
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.

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?
… Literally damn near everyone whos had a crush on someone whos taken has had that exact thought.
And. Who gives a shit about good thoughts or bad thoughts kek. Obviously youre not a bad person for having thoughts about your crush breaking up, because one at he end of the day theyre just thoughts, and two jealousy is a normal human emotion.

He didn’t seem interested in girls/women, he sung about them but he friendzoned Tatiana Thumbzten who liked him and he said in an interview that when he was 23 his 19 year old gf called him over for sex and he just buried his face in his shirt until she went away. All his girlfriends and wives were beards and he saw and hooked up with some of the children he molested when they grew up. And no girls have come out even though I guess there were some at the ranch
Another stupid question: I too watched leaving neverland and I’m interested in talking about the documentary on this site. Where do you think I should make a thread in /m/ or like just discuss it in celebricows(hopefully not cause that thread is full of gay moids and twitterfags who talk like gay moids) or maybe in /ot/?

Could it have happened over time and you just didn't notice? I know people who had to have a bunch of sugar and milk in their coffee and tea and now find it way to sweet and only drink it black, and idk about everyone else but I know there's been times I've retried sweets I ate as a kid and realised how shit they tasted.
If you are actively choosing healthier options it may be that you've created a health habit around food choices, like how if someone were to create a habit around working out once a day at first its probably going to suck but as time goes on they find it more enjoyable and actively choose to work out
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

Iirc it's the aluminium interacting with your bacteria that stains, don't think they've invented aluminium free antipersps yet. You can get pit pads to put in your shirts though, picrel
maybe not so helpful, but I resolved this problem by switching to deodorant without antiperspirant.
so I still sweat but it doesn't smell. Pits get wet sometimes, but no staining or odor.
I think I would be more fucked up if my partner physically abused me than if they cheated on me, so I'll say that.
This does bring a stupid question to mind though. If someone cheats on you and then gives you an STD, could that be considered abuse?

but there are lots of older fans into the nerd and anime scene on social media. You might just need to join their online circles and seek them out.

Sorry in advance if I'm saying something obvious but have you played around with your diet? Most often anemia can have you feeling this way but that's not the only reason; in my case it's still fluctuating but the most noticeable improvement I've noticed was when I worked a bit with dietitian, started eating more regularly and more diversified meals. I don't have any allergy or obvious deficiencies/surpluses, but it still worked.
Also, is where you live ventilated well?
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.

It depends on your needs: where you work, whether you work out, what you like to wear, etc. Then how often you do laundry and weather where you live (whether you live in a place that has distinct seasons or not). This video talks about practical aspect of planning a wardrobe.

Yeah I think in my experience finding a straight woman who only ever exclusively
watches het porn or a lesbian who only ever
watches lesbian porn is not like unheard of but not as common as people who occasionally watch some category other than their orientation. No idea about if it’s the same with men though bc I never really talk to them

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? This is just baffling to me how jannies will ban this post and not ban anons who start infights and then continue them hours later. This site is going to shit. Summerfags gtfo, that includes summerfag jannies.

Bulgarians are not a race. This is anon's original post that was banned, and I don't know if she's upset about it or not, but I personally am tired of seeing every innocuous shitpost on this site get banned for some random reason. Why are jannies personally offended on the behalf of a Bulgarian moid? It isn't even the race versus culture part that upsets me it's the no-fun-allowed moderation. God forbid some nobody Bulgarian male gets compared to a caveman.
Wikipedia:>Bulgarians are a nation and South Slavic ethnic group
I don't really blame the janny for assuming.
Only with female protags or are moids acceptable?
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.
Cooking, chores, holding hands—why do those specific things matter? There’s not a manual or measure of how to be a good older sibling, either you guys are close or you’re not. Imo those are just things that you’re using to make yourself think that you were robbed of a relationship.
Don’t nitpick the past. Unless your sister abused you or something, my advice is to make use of the family relations and call her so that you can be close as adults.
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.

"light" as in the object, like in cartoons whenever a character gets an idea. i was like kek that's so goofy do they really teach people to do that? sounds like it's effective anyway
>>1694575>Is it just me or does everyone claim to be traumatized nowadays regardless of their actual upbringing?
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. >>1694672
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.
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
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.>>1694802
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. >>1694805
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.

What is the best bebop episode and why is it Jupiter Jazz
Nose and jaw surgeries change the structure while both bbl and boobjobs insert different stuff inside your body in unsafe ways. Though jaw surgeries are also VERY dangerous and can leave you with serious complications and they're not recommended for aesthetic purposes unblessed you're malformed.
If anything nosejobs and fillers are I think the most safe compared to other operations.
Oh shoot that’s really smart. Thank you for the idea! >>1695075
That’s absolutely foul lmao yes I’m definitely clean, have a bidet. Thanks for the answer
Filler is dissolvable, you can't dissolve a bbl or boobjob though.
Also love how schizos here like to pretend that your body stresses over filler when it literally does not, by that logic youd also stress your bodies with vaccines because it's foreign material being injected to your body which is untrue.
Boobjobs and silicone implants in the nose does stress the body though because they can create a chronic immune response.
File: 1694520725997.png (76.07 KB, 457x318, Screenshot_34_480x480.png)
Filler doesnt dissolve really, it migrates and disperses through the face and body. Just fyi. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yoF_Ez27-L0&feat
Why are you trying to get a diagnosis? Most of the time, a diagnosis won't help you unless you really have that disorder and getting treatment (like behavioral theraphy for bpd) requires that diagnosis. If you're trying to get diagnosed for disability pay or something, it might be easier or harder depending on your country but even then, having a diagnosis like that can be a bad influence if you get in certain medical or legal situation where your disorder can and WILL be used against you.
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. >>1695180
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.
I'm in Healthcare, trust me I know more than a person who thinks your body attacks filler and ages you, kek.
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).>inb4 um ackshually it will because filler migrates
Improperly injected, bad quality filler in certain areas migrates. Not all filler ever. A proper doctor will not inject filler into places prone to migration.
I’ve never heard anyone criticize reconstructive plastic surgery for victims
of burns or disfiguring accidents though. Plastic surgery has been pushed on everyone and lauded as a magical way to turn back the clock, and people are only now starting to wake up to how dangerous it is, and it looks awful a lot of the time anyway. The plastic surgery industry and plastic surgeons themselves are predatory, manipulative, and misogynistic. Filler does age people, even plastic surgeons themselves admit to it. Everyone always looks worse with filler, unless they’re elderly and already experienced facial volume loss.

I agree that it's being pushed too much but I'm talking about lolcow.>Everyone always looks worse with filler
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.>>1695199
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.
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. >>1695207
"The cells" aren't getting injected lmao shut up, you'd need a microscopic needle for that. Filler is primarily administered to people who experience volume loss in the first place, like pic related
Anons keep spreading so many misinfo about Healthcare it makes me genuinely mad. One even said prostate cancer is more serious and dangerous than breast cancer a while back and argued that getting check ups for female reproductive organ related cancers was useless.
That and the number of anons I've seen who told women with pcos to stop taking their treatments without any proof is worrisome because untreated pcos can literally cause diabetes and other very serious permanent issues in women.
They're probably highschool dropouts who read a few made up stuff on conspiracy theory websites and assume they know more than doctors.
Anybody can get fillers. They'll also have to pay to get them dissolved, then watch their faces and lips deflate like nikocado's asshole, kek. "Practitioners" will really have some poor (or rich) woman's shit collapsing, and charge her extra for the honor. All these industries love making people uglier, it mean they'll keep coming back. Even worse when they start victim blaming whenever other people notice the results, and give fake promises like "It won't happen to you, that person just went too far, they should've done xyz, trust me haha. Oh, another woman did xyz and the exact same terrible result happened to her? Well, you know, everyone's body is different! Don't blame us, that's the customer's choice (even though we purposely tried to mislead people at every turn for $$$)". I hate how scammy so many beauty procedures are, it's disgusting.
>>1695214>they inject too much in too short of a time period and the doctors they go to aren't very good at it
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
Samefag when did sus
get redtexted, sorry I didn't know it was a cringey word to use
Nope. It also makes her eyes look smaller and higher up. It makes her look a little bit man-ish. I’m sorry you spent too much time on insta.>>1695251
Actually I think concealer under eyes looks bad too for the same reasons. But at least with concealer you still have natural shadowing from the shape.
AYRT, I've never had undereye filler (and am kind of wary of it since it's a very tricky spot, so the wrong injector can really fuck it up) but I've had filler in other places and it looks good depending on which filler you get and how it's done, as well as your own bone structure, fat distribution etc.
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).
It's worth noting that all the ladies at the reception looked naturally gorgeous at the third clinic, as did the doctor treating me, which won me over after I commented on it and they listed all the things they had done kek.
I don't have fillers. Just because I think you guys are being dramatic by making stuff up about medical practices doesn't mean I had those practices done to me. >>1695272
You should still get tested for allergies especially if you have eye dryness or other stuff.
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.>It's worth noting that all the ladies at the reception looked naturally gorgeous at the third clinic, as did the doctor treating me
Kek I will definitely keep that in mind
i can understand where you're coming from nonnie

>>1695303>>1695308https://www.reuters.com/world/americas/racism-underlies-disparities-maternal-mortality-americas-un-report-2023-07-12/>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.https://batten.virginia.edu/about/news/black-americans-are-systematically-under-treated-pain-why>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.
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.
You're getting to the answer nonnie
and how do they get a fluid to be targeted to an area? They give it properties to be absorbed by cell membranes to enter cells. Bless you.
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.>>1695317
What you just typed makes no sense.
>>1695328>it's another "europe has no problems with racism or sexism, everything is all americans blahblahblah" episode
No. https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/1049732320931430>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.

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.

I'm gonna sound harsh and like it's so simple but after an awful childhood, a rocky 20s and now pretty chill 30s, you do that out of spite. Who is gonna suffer if I put myself down? Me. 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?

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
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.

>>1690629>knowing how it's pronounced in your head but when saying it out-loud it's an incomprehensible mess>struggling to speak with an intonation other than ''8th grade reading essay out loud'' voice
yes. i can fake the intonation for a short while. anything other than small talk fucks me up though. i start sounding retarded. pronunciation may never be entirely correct because i can barely hear myself and i can't even say some words no matter how much i practice. i still have these problems even though i have been speaking english for 10 years.

Do people actually hire UX/UI designers? I was considering studying it because I already have a certain background in design but then I thout to myself " if people actually hired them, why would everything be so shit?" which leads me to believe it's not worth it for work
Think we are slightly past the peak for UX designer demand, but they definitely are. There's quite a bit of competition in the field at the entry level, as is everywhere.
The reason everything looks so shit is because tech illiterate suits try to hold the wheel in development.>t. software dev
this whole post is making me die kek. I notice it here too, but like >>1701933
said, in my area its a mixture of both healthy and fat women. I'm not sure why Halloween / NBC becomes a personality for some people
It is in my head if I said I live rent free in their heads. I don’t. But fat women that are fit live rent free in their heads. Like legit.
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. >>1702021
I think it’s because they were never truly fat a as a kid. If I ever become fit I will NEVER be arrogant. never. EVER.

What is the deal with those women who are seX wOrKerS who have other options, but complain about how hard it is constantly? Like just do something else if you hate it so much?? For example I know a number of women at uni who do it. They have a student loan, and could easily get a part time job in retail or food service or a bar rather than stripping or ewhoring, but choose “sex work” and complain about how hard it is. I simply do not understand this logic
said, but "glowing" can also be more than just referring to physical attributes, so it's also complimenting the women's general aura. Sort of like "you're beautiful inside and out."
they're trying to be nice out of pity and social obligation.
"glowing" is also used to refer to young women whose skin is clear (especially in skincare communities) and they're looking happy and bubbly in general.

This is a retardo question but I feel like this would be the only place to ask it. If you answer I’d like to read some like official medical research papers (?) or whatever those are called relating to this. So my question: When people have grown up not getting a lot of positive reinforcement, or praise for anything, do they become a bit narcissistic later on in life? Like, loving praise from others, doing things just to hear that praise. If not narcissism, but turning to people pleasing? Sorry if this is a dumb question. I’m curious. Thanks
seconding what >>1703093
says about sleep. when I'm low on sleep and/or haven't been taking care of myself (such as poor nutrition) I will sometimes hallucinate like how you described. staring at screens for too long can cause it too for me at least.

Do all men eventually cheat? Based on my personal experience and what i hear from other women, it seems like they do. Just wanting more opinions on this to see if I really should give up on the idea of finding an actual good scrote

Is mod anon on /meta/ angry because they lost mod privileges from an earlier version of lolcow and now wants to mínimod everything she doesn't like out of this website? 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.
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.

How could I give these trousers a more feminine touch? Planning on wearing them with the same style Mary Janes
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?>>1704228
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!
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 think a fitted, v-neck cardigan like picrel would be nice. The tight top + loose bottoms creates a nice silhouette on most people as well
