I kind of agree in some cases but it's just never that simple. I want to cut out my dad for instance but I still love my extended family and there's pretty much no way for me to cut him out and still be on good terms with the rest of my family (plus then things would be awkward for my siblings, etc). Sometimes it really is just an issue of the person who needs to do the cutting off having no spine, though, and it's hard to sympathize with someone who has the opportunity to cleanly break with a toxic person and won't take it.

agreed, one of my best friends is constantly making new """enemies""" because she's just kind of an asshole to people. I'm not cutting out all those people just because she doesn't get along with them, that's her problem.

Been meaning to post this in one of these but: 99% of farmers' photoshop jokes made from cows' photos are super cringe and a convoluted mess of current cow events. It baffles me that people reply with "omg im dying next thread pic!!" to these really unfunny & weird pictures that anons make. IMO usually the cows post photos that speak for themselves in terms of cringe or uglyness. Same goes for when the thread pic is a compilation of screencaps - its ugly and makes it not as easy to find whatever cow I'm looking for bc their face isnt in it. Gifs are annoying too.

Nayrt but 90s-early 00s U.S, white girls didnt want to have big butts. It was just as much of a trend as being thicc is in 2018, and being thicc is probably nearing its end. Lack of butt = the petite idealized figure back in that time frame.

yeah what >>268387 is 100% true. having a big butt used to not be desired since it was associated with being fat. big butts were only the norm for black and latina women since they are associated with being naturally curvy, but other women definitely wanted to be as thin as possible. that's why women like j.lo, kim kardashian, and nicki minaj became so known for their asses, having butts like theirs was not common. now that being #thicc is in, suddenly everyone wants a fat ass.

i don't think being super thin will be a trend again any time soon but the oversized butt thing will die out when women get tired of having to do ridiculous things like get fat tranfers/ass shots in order to maintain their dream butt. imo girls will start speaking out about loving their natural butt and not changing it to follow a trend which will create a movement of girls "accepting" having a smaller booty

No. 268401

Their faces are literally too short to breach properly. It’s breathing is not fine it’s just not snorting like a snorkel in a pudding cup. It’s eyes are too big for its skull, and it’s never not a struggle to breathe. They aren’t cute they’re tortured.

I feel that as well. I don't browse image boards as much nowadays but lolcow posters seem to always be legit angry/negative at something, while on 4chan it's mostly the most populated boards, and the rest is just irony. When I read a "kill yourself" on 4chan, it just feels like banter.

that's interesting because for the most part,i assume a lot of girls here are just being extra vicious because of the nature of gossip, but probably aren't that mean spirited and critical irl, whereas when i see shit like >>268472 and worse, i tend to assume the men there really do hate women and/or think of them as subhuman.

I'm not saying your perception is wrong and mine is right, could definitely be the opposite, but I guess it's easy to project your biases onto anons when its impossible to know what individuals' tones and intentions really are. If you're sensitive about misogyny you're going to assume all those dudes are 100% serious, but if you're a happy go lucky boy's boy you're probably going to assume every single one of them is totally joking.

Commenting on videos about super deformed women being “so beautiful<3” is just as bad as commenting how ugly they are, because it’s so obvious that you KNOW they are ugly but you want to pat yourself on the back with karma points. By bringing up and drawing attention to looks when everybody is basically trying to avoid it, you are basically just calling them ugly.

No. 268538

I don't like the trend of equating beauty/ugliness to people we do or don't like in general. Like saying "homophobes are ugly" or whatever. You're still attaching a negative stigma to ugliness which will never become detached from its original meaning of being physically unappealing.

No. 268540

Maybe they're just saying "beautiful" in a broader aspect, taking in consideration the things these people have to go through and how positive they try to be despite being physically so ugly? Everybody knows she's not beautiful in the psysical sense. You're annoyed without reason imo.

Sims 4 is actually good, it has a much better CAS and house building system than the earlier games, with decent gameplay and i think it recieves an unfair amount of hate. You can't compare it to the sims 2 (the best sims game), it was a complete different time in gaming and it had this one guy working on it (cant remember his name) who resigned before sims 3 i think, but at least compared to sims 3 it's just as good if not better.

A lot of people complain that women choose career over family but I think most women would like to be stay at home moms and take care of families. I don't think women choose careers over families I think it is men who just don't want families or to take care of them.

i blame porn for this too. there's nothing wrong with a woman genuinely enjoying a man being rougher. but i feel like it's become more popular because a lot of younger girls see violent sex gifs on tumblr and girls in trendy bondage chokers on insta and immediately latch onto it as their "kink". yet i'm sure if they weren't exposed to the ~aesthtic they wouldn't care for it. same goes for guys who watch a lot of porn; i've had partners assume that i wanted them so spit on me and yank my hair and shit, and i was just like dude stop. tbh when i was scrolling through the dolly shay + fupapa thread it made me feel really sad and sick.

No. 268563

tbh i think most men would prefer being home with the kids with their partner brining home the bacon as well. it's comfy and "easy" (put in quotation marks because childraising is not easy at all but most people consider it so)

No. 268566

I think almost anyone would prefer to be a stay at home parent, even men deep down. Everyone's fantasy is winning the lottery so they can quit work, and that's basically what marrying a well off person and being supported is. But unless you're fucking retarded you'll know that their support is conditional and easily cut off, and financial dependence is a very bad position to be in.

Most girls I know openly want it and I've met very few ambitious career women. Admittedly that's probably because I don't run in high flying, educated circles, but the fact remains that career women ruining traditional marriage is a fucking boogieman. There are still a massive number of women out there who'd love to stay home and look after kids. Men are delusional about what keeps women from being SAHMs, it's sure as fuck not the desire to work.

No. 268568

When people insist trans women can never pass, I like to make a game of posting pictures and videos of average/above average/attractive cis women and saying shit like "Not all". The person inevitably takes the bait and starts listing off non-existent masculine features and/or insisting on lighting in pic/vid or flattering angles being "dead giveaways".
I'm not even a tranny, I just think transphobes are tryhards. A lot of them talk about being supportive of "real" women, but when you do this, they demonstrate that either their standards for women's natural appearances are batshit insane and just as unrealistic as autogynephiles who are basically trying to become fantasies of women, or they're just very, very dishonest and/or delusional people (again, just like the trannies they hate).

No. 268569

Images are a poor measurement. Meet those average women irl and they will talk, act, sound like women. Meet visually passing trannies irl and there's always something off about them - usually act like flamboyant gay guys because they are.
Most women hate trannies for invading women's spaces and talking over us, ala men throughout the ages. The fact that you have devalued the argument down to looks shows how little you are involved in the issue.

I know a lot of women who should just honestly be SAHMs because they are either breaking even on their paycheck having their young children in daycare, or SEVERELY underpaying babysitters and nannys so that they can take home at least %5 of their shitty lowpaying paying.

Its just that a lot of SAHMs dont really try. Its ‘cool’ as a mom to have your house look like shit with laundry everywhere because thats what makes you ‘real’. They want babies but just plop them in front of the TV and let their kids binge watch peppa pig on Netflix instead of doing worthwhile things like taking them outside, maybe enrolling them in a playgroup, teaching them something, etc. They usually dont clean, their kids are always dirty somehow even though they never go outside, and they rarely cook fresh meals. These are also the same people that bitch about how hard it is to stay at home, while also saying they do the work of 20+ jobs combined (“I GAVE MY KID AN ASPIRIN AND A BANDAID THAT MEANS IM BASICALLY A DOCTOR”) This is just my experience of my friends aged 23~26 in the midwest though.

i agree. on the other hand, i think eyelash lifting is legit. fake eyelashes looked odd on me. and when i considered eyelash extensions, the woman at the salon said my eyelashes were pretty long and that a lift would look better. basically my eyelashases don't curl well and look droopy, but they're fine. tbh i had no idea that i had long lashes till she and my family told me, bc they didn't hold a curl so they didn't look cute to me. so i tried it, thinking it wouldn't make a difference since it wasn't extensions. i now love it and do it for holidays and stuff. they don't look insane. they look like i have big eyelashes but it looks natural and they don't give me strict maintance rules and my eyelashes were fine. here they explain a bit https://www.elle.com/beauty/makeup-skin-care/a19409536/what-is-lash-lift/

if any anons out there suffer because their lashes aren't short, they're just frumpy, i recommend it!! i could never do extensions now because i know they would be way too big and fake looking.

No. 268724

exactly. and all of these fucking male defenders come out of the woodwork to defend men against the invisible attack against them by a very very small percentage of women that actually enforce such boundaries. no one is demanding men to stay in relationships where their female partner requires they not watch porn.

being uncomfortable with your partner wanting to fuck other people and doing it regularly is normal and there's nothing wrong with not being okay with it in your relationship. it's all just down to what you personally want, and no one is forcing men to stay in porn-free relationships. i can't stand this "boys will be boys!!" shit and that women are "crazy and insecure", etc.

Their logic is always that they have to try harder, so they should get congratulated for managing to have sex.

If they actually worked out and ate right, they would get bodies that they worked for. Its just weird how their mind fucks it all up for them.

I was once sick and had to deal with loads of vomiting for weeks on end followed by months of other stuff thrown in and didnt pay attention to my eating because it would stir up inflammations.

Semi-agree about Momo, I've been with her threads ever since the very first one and I hate how we get pulses of newfags every now and then who can't shut up about her being fat and le boob veinXDDD like we weren't aware already. Instead of actually reading through threads or lurking for a while people join in and make shit up, basically turning speculation into facts. The reachers are also cringy as shit, they dig way too deep into stalking and interpreting her every move to the tune of "she filmed herself in bikinis at a hotel with kids on the yard, what a fucking pedo!!!!". The backseat mods are the worst though, I've never seen anything as autistic as when they started demanding people to use "[redacted]" instead of "giving Momo advice" i.e. pointing out her mistakes. Like what the fuck kind of special ed did you go to? I don't care if she "gets advice" from /pt/, thank god mods started banning these retards.

However I do think she's absolutely /pt/ material and without doubt the biggest cow since Pixyteri that the cosplay community has ever seen.

Kinda late, but this is what annoys me the most. Effort usually doesn't matter, in any other circumstance (like school or work or art). People will judge you by the results and only by the results.

Some people are oversensitive about the word "racist", and it's not because they're virulently anti-racist, but because they don't want to self-reflect too hard.
I read an article about this white online celebrity who used to make blatantly racist jokes/comments about black people in the past, and when confronted about it, he said "They were distasteful, and I'm a different person now, but were they racist? Really??". Like…Yes. That's why they were distasteful. Come out and admit your behavior if you've really changed. Almost all people are guilty of some level of racism, and if things are to change, it needs to be openly acknowledged and criticized. The whole "The only way to fix racism is to stop talking about it" meme is fucking retarded, and just allows racists to never change, while accusing people of "pulling the race card" or "making everything about race" whenever their actions get noticed and called out.

>then what gives anybody the right to call another person out for it, if they're one themself?

ntayrt, but wouldn't that depend on how much they let the racism/prejudice effect their life?

for example in high school i knew a girl whose mom wouldn't let her be friends with black people. like she was forbidden to interact with them despite going to school with them (the girl still did, just secretly without her mom knowing). compare that to a friend i had whose mom wasn't exactly the biggest fan of black people, but still had no problem letting her child hangout with them (her daughter's best friend was/is black) and still treated them like human beings. surely despite both of these women being prejudice/racist, one is clearly more respectful than the other and has the right to call the other on her bullshit? like >>269254 said racism is a spectrum, some people go way too far in letting their prejudice ideals dictate their actions and they deserve to be called out for it

No. 269336

True, and on the flip side it ALSO doesn't matter if someone enjoys things they don't need to put effort into. Men act like women are at fault if they have sex specifically because it is easy for them, like the fact that it takes no effort alone makes it the wrong thing to do. Their logic is literally 'women are sluts because they don't have to try to get sex, men are studs because they do'. But if you're lucky in certain areas of life, like you have well off parents or something, you aren't a bad person for benefiting off it and you don't have a moral obligation to avoid it.

It's ok to be white and be proud of where you're from. Also there's no reason to import loads of immigrants into the country just because.

Places like Japan are praised for having a nationalist outlook, but white people aren't allowed to be proud of their countries?
Of course someone's going to call me racist for this, I just don't see why globalism is being enforced in white countries but nowhere else.

It seems like American white people are usually Euromutts who are completely divorced from any real white (European) culture, so they just unite around skin color, and apologism for a blood-soaked history. They somehow can't just say "I'm okay with being white, I like it" without adding "And FUCK non-white subhumans! Kill them all!" on top. No one would be mad if they just had, I don't know, meetups where they wear dirndls, dress up as pilgrims and get excited over traditional Norse mythology. Instead they get swastika tattoos, lmao.
Somehow, the bulk of other races and a large chunk of Europe can manage to focus on just being happy with their culture and keep others' names out their mouths, but not Americans. They really do fuck it up for everyone.

I'm from Germany and this is definitely tricky. People are normally okay with it as long as it's the World Cup, but when you hang the German flag out of your window or wave it randomly on the street without any big event, people MIGHT think that you are far right. The reason is that Germany still hasn't worked through the whole WW2 trauma.

I don't understand the popularity of drinking and alcohol. Thought I would understand in my twenties and I still don't get why its apparently so fun.

i can't wrap my head around it because i'm dirt poor and i cannot imagine spending money on alcohol regularly. i've tried it, its fine, but spending money to build tolerance and start liking it… money that i could spend on my meals….. money that i need for my bus fares and therapy…. wasting it in a night of fun? yeah its a no for me dawg.

Most people don't actively like being sloppy/wasted. It's more often that you're very tipsy and it feels great so in your drunken stupidity you think drinking even more will make you feel even more great, when in actuality you just accidentally get blackout/unpleasantly drunk.

I like being tipsy but I fucking hate being stoned these days. I don't know what happened. I used to like it and smoke every day but something happened and now all it does is make me terrified, down on myself, sad, anxious, cold, and asthmatic if it doens't give me a full blown panic attack. I keep trying it once in a while thinking maybe it'll be different this time, but I always end up watching the clock hoping it'll be over soon.

It does, but they're not the only fucking people who fit in the "proud to be white" umbrella, unlike in the US. "Normal" European people generally enjoy being white and appreciate their respective cultures without sperging out at literally everyone else, but Americans somehow can't figure that out. That's why no one likes this "white pride" shit, because they mess it up every time, not because "everyone hates whitey and wants white ppl to feel guilty >:(".

No. 269518

I think part of this is because in liberal areas of the country, white guilt is the norm and even saying something like "I like being white" or having a festival for your European culture would be considered a form of white supremacy and racism. It's difficult to publicly stand up for yourself without being massively misunderstood, so you're left with a huge number of white people falling over themselves to apologize and make sure everyone knows they have 0 white pride of any kind, and a small number of stubborn white people who get turned on to stormfront or similar, and because doing so makes you a social pariah, they get more and more extreme because the only people they can talk about cultural pride with are other social pariahs and actual racists.

I really, really don't think a country run, mostly populated by and owned by white people has white guilt as the norm. I've never seen a white person get yelled at for getting hype over St. Patrick's Day, for example. Any kind of anti European pride rhetoric like that only happened after the spread of actual white supremacy, the KKK, etc, not before.
You kind of make it sound like Neo-Nazis only exist because somehow the much lower in number, not as socially powerful chunk of the population (eg non-white people) magically bullied white people and now they're like this, but that sounds pretty far-fetched.

I think it's ok for white people to have pride in their race. The real reason why people have a problem with white people expressing their pride is usually it's paired with hating someone else and putting others down. They can't simply just say "white features and blue eyes are beautiful", it always has to be something like "white features are beautiful that is why nigger apes aren't human and brown eyes look like poop". If white people could just learn that having pride in their race doesn't mean making everyone else feel like crap then no one would care. It isn't that people expect whites to feel guilty and hate themselves it's just they don't know how to express pride without being a hater.

Have you tried it? Not being condescending, but it's a pretty distinctly pleasant feeling as long as you don't get sick.

I can't stand seeing black people be K-pop fans. The entire country essentially hates black people whilst ripping off their music because they literally can't make anything original without borrowing from either Japan, Europe or the US. The gag is their music isn't even innovative, well-written or good. Most of them literally just take recycled pop songs American artists didn't want. They all look the same, get the same surgery, and are "trained" since childhood by the same soulless companies. No creativity or true artistry. There isn't much to like.
The type of black person who stans these generic bands always seems happy to accept blatant hatred and disrespect toward them, both from pop stars and normal Korean people. They make endless excuses for their "oppas" being blatantly racist, and it makes me sad/grosses me out. Self-hatred is depressing.
I'd even say being a weeaboo is better. Japan can be racist, too, but they're not nearly as disgustingly rude about it as Korea (also, Japanese people actually create their own aesthetics, fashion, music genres and content, lmao).

Nah, not everyone is as shitty as Koreans (and light skin is generally preferred, but not to that extent. Notice how so many rich westerners purposely darken their skin, plump up their lips/asses, etc to look more "exotic"?). They just have a heavy inferiority complex that they take out on the same black people they mindlessly copy. Everyone is racist, but racism is a spectrum. Case in point, visit Japan and visit Korea. The treatment is fucking worlds apart, because Japanese people actually have some degree of manners. And at least in the US and some parts of Europe, there are black female artists, models, musicians and general creators flourishing in spite of racism (and colorism) existing. That could never happen in Korea, even if 13% of their population were to be black, because their entire culture is just backward.
These people pull shit like pic related (which would never pass in the west), refuse to let black people into clubs but allow other foreigners, happily put up "No black people (because ebola)" signs on restaurants, and outright spit on/steal from/scream at black people in public, but then screech because one (1) rapper said "Smoke got my eyes looking Korean" and start calling us "chimpanzees", "niggers", etc in "retaliation".

Kpop is just fun because it is cute/happy. Idols are just objects and they know it. No one really sees them as people. Japanese idols have done black face and made fun of dark skin too. Black people should be able to enjoy Kpop too but they should also be realistic and not think Korea is going to be some fairy tale land and that they can become idols as well(this applies to white fans too).They should just enjoy idols as cute and fun entertainment when they're bored. As a black person there really is no form of media you can go to to avoid racism, especially as a black women. Ya go to look at movies for black people?oh all the main female black characters are mixed!, want to get into hophop culture?oh all the men hate black women and blame them for everything. Kpop is just care free, sometimes a person just wants to listen to some retarded 16 year old sing songs about love and not think too deeply into it. I don't think Korea or idols being racist sometimes is a good reason for black people not to listen to Kpop.

I'm glad to not be this stupid. Point out where I said anything about "potential" or "imaginary" racism. You think calling people chimps and niggers is an appropriate response to them thinking your embarrassing hobbies are, well, embarrassing. You don't need to be a "blacktivist" to see it, either. Even white koreaboos find you people annoying and cringy. Only a self-hating retard stans for people who literally hate them. Hence, coon.

Kind of good point, actually. All I originally said was I didn't care about baseless claims of racism against idols or idols making racist jokes and neither do a lot of black k-pop fans, then you started flinging shit at me.

>You just projected your mental illness, called people "nonnie" like a classic black #woke #savage Tumblrina and yelled at people for thinking black koreaboos are cringy.


>But now I guess you are denying it

You guessed wrong. Some people do, but they aren't majority. Why on earth would most or even a significant minority of k-pop fans be black?

The K-pop threads here have made me hate Korea. North, South, they're just two sides of the same shitty coin. I've never seen a more culturally vacant society with a bigger superiority complex. They call all other races ugly yet they run to the surgeon to shave their whole face. Their sense of nationalism is way too strong for a country that has contributed literally nothing to the world. I don't want K-pop to get any bigger because I don't want to give them any more reason to gloat, because it doesn't mean anything to them that their music is bought and stolen from the West, they still think it's a national treasure. I don't want to hate them so maybe I need a break from reading those threads, idk.

Related unpopular opinion:
People who demand Korean make up brands to come out with the same shade range as American/western brands are retarded. Korea isn't nearly as racially diverse as the US so it wouldn't make sense for the brands at all.

Fair-skinned people who complain about not being able to find a shade match in foundation - stop. There are TONS of options and if you still can't find anything, use a white pigment to mix in, they are available at the damn drugstore. It doesn't work the same way with darkening shades because the undertone might get completely messed up.

I think that secretly a lot of people think it wouldn’t be so bad. Could you imagine a world without autism?

I'd feel the same if the people who actually wanted it weren't dumb (like you guys) You realize autism doesn't have a genetic link at all, so there's no way to determine who would have autistic children. Not to mention autists don't actually have a higher chance of producing children with autism.

Ffs, atleast know what you're talking about.

No. 270028

I think it's hard to enforce because most adults with those genes getting pregnant aren't developmentally deficient themselves (they're just carriers), so they don't want to be told their babies will not be normal, and I doubt you could equally force them to abort.

It's not fair and I feel for those people, but I also understand that it's not fair to bring in babies who are destined to physically and mentally suffer.
Not sure about autism though, it truly is a spectrum and most people turn out fine. Whereas Downs is debilitating.

Same. Before I used to think "do whatever you want, it doesn't affect me so what do I care," didn't know any trans people irl, and believed they were victims of religious/conservative bigotry. I honestly didn't think much about them at all before going through those threads. It really opened my eyes to how fucked up the concept of transgenderism actually is.

It's infuriating that after all the progression feminism has made, men now feel entitled to women's-only spaces, wearing our gender like a costume, and then claim that they're more oppressed. Their autogynephilia and obsession with passing as teenage girls is disgusting. I think what pisses me off the most though is the erasure of women's anatomy as I am very passionate about women's reproductive rights. Them claiming things like the pussy hats worn at protests were exclusive, fetishizing menstruation, reducing women to terms like uterus-owner, ignoring biology to say "some women have penises," and being more concerned about getting their penises turned inside out than being denied an abortion, birth control, etc., are all examples of transwomen deliberately shutting down issues genuine women face.

Their obsession with hypergamy is so bizarre. If women are hypergamous, what does it make their desire for exclusive access to the vag and womb of any and all women they want, and their expectation that literally all women strive to cater to their tastes? To use an exaggerated example, a hypergamous woman wants to be with a king. A man wants to be the king, own a harem of underage virgin breeding sows with no rights, and conquer other kingdoms to take all their women to add to the harem. How the fuck did they become so convinced that a woman wanting a high value man is so evil? They want high value women too, but in far greater quantities and for their own personal use. They just have more trouble getting what they want than women do, because there is heavy competition when you want every attractive woman for yourself.

I've noticed this to
Millions of men expect all women to be virgins begging for their dick = perfectly fine and its actually the evil womens fault for having such high standards! Men deserve all the pussy they want for being born men!!

Sadly, chances are, they'll never have a drop of self awareness or see their own hypocrisy, they'll just keep living in their male oppression fantasies where because 1 or 2 women wanted to fuck chads, men are oppressed but men are entitled to all the women they want for being born male by chance

Good advice, for men and women,marriage is a forever type thing for most people unless you rather spend tons on divorce,better to choose someone you know you can be with, for a long time anyway, but just like if you marry someone you've only been with for a few months. Don't be shocked when it ends badly, and don't expect perfect pure virgin with hentai body baby face wives who do nothing but cook, clean and pop out babies all day and somehow never age and funnel daddys money into your account and wonder why you can't get married

>women reserve the right to change their mind at anytime

That's right except it applies for both genders, no one is obligated to stay in a relationship that makes them miserable, some of these men will treat their SOs like complete shit and sit around scratching their heads and screaming about female privilege when women decide to leave, guess negging and all that horseshit didn't grant them magical powers like they thought
>men are the disposable sex
This is what I don't get. Never in my life have I saw a woman divorce a man for getting a serious illness, meanwhile men pull that shit all the time, breaking up with women for getting mastectomies when they had breast cancer, breaking up with women for having PCOS or reproductive issues, these same men always scream about hitting the wall, first they mock women for having careers then cry gold digger when women can't support themselves, if men work hard jobs they get asspatted and told they deserve the world to suck their dick, if a woman does they get the "LOL U STUPID UGLY BITCH U WANTED EQUALITY HERE IT IS U STUPID UNBEARABLE CUNT GET BEAT UP LIKE MEN OR GIVE UP YOUR RIGHTS" shit, their hypocrisy is astounding, I WISH men were the disposable gender, they're so god damn caught up in the lie of MGTOW they'll never even acknowledge men now have it easier than ever but cry male oppression any chance they get, a bunch of god damn pussy crybabies

People against affirmative action act like hood rats off the street who can't read or write will be working as their doctor lol…uh no the person still has to be educated. Uneducated white men just use affirmative action as an excuse to explain why they're failures…"omg all the niggers and women are taking my spot in university because of affirmative action!". Sorry hunny even without those niggers and women around you still would be a failure.

most of the people i know who complain about affirmative action aren't even white males though, they are east and south asians who think they don't get anything because they're "too smart"

i personally don't like affirmative action, for race or gender. and not just because i think it's unfair to other races (or men), but because it undermines the hard work someone of a benefited minority actually puts into getting into a good college. for example, a black or hispanic student (and/or female) could bust their ass to have straights A's, SAT/ACT scores through the roof, and and extensive resume, but some average to slightly above average person is still going to bitch about how they benefited from AA.

also i hate it when someone who can benefit from AA tells people they don't want to apply to a certain school, or want to do something else besides college, and the response they get is "oh well you're (insert minority here) so you could probably get in without even trying! i'm (insert here) and admissions would look past me, unlike YOU" lol honestly it just makes people act so bitter.

>also, people seem to forget why affirmative action exists, not to give a free pass to minorities but because schools literally would not let anyone who wasn't a white male go to school so they had to be forced to do it.

this is true and was necessary at one point in time. i don't know why it's still around though, i wish that college apps were blind and only considered academic merits. but whatever.

Yeah, I'm insecure about affirmative action for the same reason. If anything it makes minorities look like fucking idiots who can't do it on our own, it's like a backhanded compliment. I'd like to achieve things based on my own merit and hard work rather than be a poor widdle brown woman who needed help from white men to succeed.

i'm not brown i'm white but i completely understand what you're saying. i literally got into the closest state school i could with like a 50% acceptance rate. some of my black and latina classmates, on the other hand, got into noteworthy schools and programs because they really kicked ass in high school (especially compared to me haha). i'd never pull the affirmative action card on them, ever.

and on the topic of campaigns, there are already a lot of programs pushing STEM on women it seems. even kid's shows and toys are doing that. my ex was in a honors program for STEM majors at his uni, and the cohort that came after his was like 75% women.


i second all of this anon. i also went to a wealthy suburban school where 99% of students went off to college, regardless of their race. i don't even think the people i went to school with realize how good we had it compared to most of our state or even the country. i also think poor, rural whites are an overlooked group when it comes to this topic.

i know everyone hates him but i have a guilty pleasure for watching jeffree star’s youtube videos and snapchat stories. i used to be completely turned off by him. his dogs and his bf are so cute and idk i just like seeing their happy little family thing every morning when jeffree posts snaps of them. recently he’s seemed so much more positive than i remember. it’s a nice change and i think it probably has something to do with him switching up his friends to more stable and self-sufficient people.

maybe it’s all bullshit and 100% for the cameras but honestly i don’t care. he’s out here every morning telling his audience to let go of negativity and take a minute to breathe. as cheesy and generic as it is, he still does it every day and i get the sense he actually does care about the wellbeing of his loved ones. it’s just kinda nice.

>because schools literally would not let anyone who wasn't a white male go to school so they had to be forced to do it
No, it's bullshit.

Without affirmative action we would have plenty of minorities going to med school. They just wouldn't be the ones that white people care about. (Asians) It's supposed to be about equity or whatever.

Look at the University of California system which was forced to get rid of affirmative action. There are still plenty of minorities. Except I met a girl who had the gall to complain that her school had no PoC except it was majority Asian.

Being discriminated against for university selection is hardly the end of the world. But imo if universities want to practice affirmative action, they should be willing to cut more white applicants instead of punishing Asian ones. As it stands Asian people have to get higher SAT scores and a higher GPA to get into college compared to white people.

out of all the people to hatewatch, he's so fucking boring. i'd take a mess like trisha paytas anyway.

No. 270886

If you’re a stay at home mom and your house is filthy with laundry piles everywhere and your kids are lagging behind in learning and development, you are just lazy. Period.

A lot of it is just excuses too. Your kid makes a mess? Teach them to clean up. Your kid bringing his toys out is not an excuse for the dishes that have been untouched for days, the laundry on the floor, and your crusted hardwood floors that you haven’t wiped down since before you even had kids.

And I’m sick of seeing kids living off macaroni and cheese with chicken nugget diets because poor little johnny wont eat anything else. Give your kid some nutrition. A kid will eat when they are hungry.

Sorry, the only people calling anorexic girls fat are anorexics and ""recovered"" anorexic farmers.

No. 270909

Imo this isn't unpopular, just not something people say out loud because nobody wants to discredit stay at home moms as a whole bc many people would dogpile the criticism and extrapolate that even the very committed and organized moms are lazy too for not having jobs.

Imo I think having a stay at home mother is best for a child's development and I'm very much willing to support it as long as the mother isn't a lazy bitch. Unfortunately, the bum mothers give a bad reputation for them all and demand to be respected as equally for not doing shit in comparison.

No. 270911

I generally don't like stay at home moms just because I've seen so many of this type. I wonder how they don't get bored of being lazy as they literally have nothing else to do.

No. 271034

my guess for these specific types would be that they’re not bored because instead of taking proper care of their kids, they’re busy peddling younique or lularoe on facebook

I don't think being fat necessarily makes someone unnatractive, I see plenty of cute chubby girls everywhere, if their hair is done, they have nice makeup and dress well I think they can look very beautiful. I honestly think face is 95% of what makes someone attractive.

No. 271092


i mean sure but its almost universal that a 6/10 chubby could easily turn to a 10/10 if they got fit or skinny. its not so much that they're all hideous, some overweight or chubby people look fine (obese are all uggos though imo). but theres always that "they'd be hotter if they lost weight" which is true most of the time, and that people always point out.

Welp, found myself looking at baby clothes and furniture, yet again, watching cute baby videos, making a cute family with me, my bf and future kids on sims yet again, reading cute parenting stories, babying my dog, reading to her, etc etc, I was thinking about buying a reborn doll so i dont look like a freak in public if i were to take it out

I hate myself, I want to be a mom so badly but I can't, we need to make a living and finish school and whatnot until we're financially stable, and Im wayy to young and poor to bring another life into the world

Anons how do I deal with these nesting instincts? Should I buy a baby doll or apply at a nursery or something? Or am I just hysterical?

No. 271242

Get a hobby, ideally one expensive and/or time consuming enough that you start to dread having to give it up for the sake of a kid

No. 271243

Start babysitting actual infants. I get those feelings too, but ever since watching my brothers kids (3 year old and 5 month old) its kind of set aside those feelings to more of a “I can wait a bit longer to actually prepare for this shit and raise them right”. But my brothers house is a shithole and his kids are miles away from how I’d like mine to turn out, so you’ll probably need a similar situation.

Also try picking up knitting/sewing/crocheting since the pieces can take long to make right and perfect, and it will pretty much take care of the nesting feeling if you just make baby stuff.

No. 271245

Bisexuals who complain about being oppressed or act like they are need to be dragged by a semi for a couple of miles until they realise its the most represented sexuality and the ratio of characters is like 1 gay character to 30 bi ones. Erasure isn't a thing just bc one cunt in hs told you 'omg u cant decide' when you peaked.

No. 271257

Having a boyfriend is unironically being a gender traitor.

No. 271274

I'm ashamed of being bisexual myself because of retards who whine about erasure while simultaniously calling themselves "gay af".
Erasure is about the pettiest thing to complain about anyway.
Most bis are only romantically involved with the other sex anyway so they have nothing to be oppressed about… Even those who face oppression do so bexause of their attraction to the same sex and not because they like both.
And I want to punch those who deny our considerable privilege over gay people or even dare to whine about "monosexual privilege".

No. 271288

The problem about being bi is less about representation erasure and more about hostility from the rest of the gay/lesbian community. Too many will still consider you straight, expect you to cheat or won't even touch you because you've touched the opposite sex before.

No. 271298

This, I think it's fair to say bisexuals don't face the same kind of oppression that lesbians or gay men do, but they do face a lot of other hurdles. There's a stigma about bisexuals being whores, men often want to engage in threesomes or don't take the relationship seriously, women don't want to date girls who have been in heterosexual relationships, they get accused of cheating/wanting to cheat by partners of both genders. They're not as bad off by any means, but they're not treated like heterosexuals either.

I've never been mad about it and this is probably the most thought I've put into it, but it is kinda silly that apparently soo many people on the internet are trypophobic.

I definitely think people make way too big a deal out of it, like the people who say they have it but also follow a subreddit specifically to expose themselves to things that cause the revulsion. People treat it like it’s a big deal when really it’s just ‘nah closeups of beehives give me the heebie-jeebies’
It’s sort of nice to know that other people experience it because it’s a relief to find out it’s normal. The people who make it a meme are weird tho.

i absolutely pity lesbians for having to deal with psycho transbians, though.

No. 271515

I’m the original trypophobia anon; I think it’s not a real phobia, just a popular name for a strong revulsion reaction. I wouldn’t ever class it in the same category as agoraphobia or other phobias that have an impact on day to day living.

Sorry for the blog but I’ve had the reaction since I was little and have always associated the texture as something full of parasites, and while it’s absolutely not a mental illness or actual phobia it’s an interesting phenomenon. It’s been blown way out of proportion, online it’s a mountain when irl it’s a molehill.

It’s weird to aggressively deny it could possibly exist and it’s weird to make it a part of your personality or general conversation.

Sorry anon but June isn’t the only person in the world to think forcing oneself to act like a lesbian becaus they started thinking heterosexuality is a meme invented by society and not y’know, part of how we reproduce.

Idc about actual lesbians or people who dislike men. It’s a whole different kettle of fish to force a sexual identity you don’t have to gain the approval of a community.

Absolutely nowhere in this thread did people call demi thin unless they were referring to when she starved herself. Do you think that there's only thin, fat and no inbetween? I'm not even American or western and don't consider her fat

No. 271560

She's clearly bigger than what should be her ideal weight, that makes her fat.

No. 271561

I disagree with the fetishism tbh. It seems to be more related to the general populations weight going steadily up. If the majority of the population is twenty kilos overweight or more, and you’re raised seeing mostly these overweight people as a normal size, healthy people probably do look very thin.

If you never knew that it’s normal to see some ribs you’d probably find it alarming.

The body positivity thing has just kind of aggregated these skewed perceptions, added in a bunch of ‘you’re so beautiful and perfect and everyone’s jealous’ and now it’s turned into this club that admonishes any interest in health as severe anorexia and applauds shamelessness.

Most fat people aren’t part of the movement but the very insecure loud ones are and they have taken it upon themselves to speak for all fat people.

No. 271563

And how much is muscle? And how much (supposedly) overweight she is?

Lmao okay then doctor. Thanks for the diagnosis, and again, sorry you’ve never seen someone with less than 40 pounds of body fat.

Healthy people do not have fat deposits on their ribs. It’s a thin wall of muscle. Nobody is saying every rib should be visible or you’re a fatty, just that it’s pretty normal to see a general outline of the floating ribs.

You literally just repeated their point in assholish terms, and i knew women with BMIs of less than 19 who didnt have "outlines of floating ribs" the fuck, like everyone is saying it depends on the person, but lots of skinny women even models dont have that so whats your point about how supposeldy common it is and anyone who disagrees is fat

Kota milk has dried up and left us years ago. Kiki has been more of a cow anyways, yet people keep sucking the kota teat for some reason. Most anons in her thread are obviously holding some kind of grudge because they knitpick everything, its not even fun anymore.

Its the same old “she wont last long!! Anyday now she’ll go back home!!” we’ve been seeing for years. Or sperging about how she ‘tricks’ every employer that hires her with her shoops, despite still getting work.

this. her normal face is the kind of plain jane japan likes, and japan is notorious for egregious shoop in all of their magazines. i think she's creepy as hell and is an idiot, but that's it. All of the "gaijin in japan" type threads about gals or idolshit are all the same kind of bitter weebs acting better than other weebs.

No. 271617

Completely agree. And this is coming from someone who fucking LOATHED Dakota in the early 2010's. I hated her so goddamn much. But after she moved to Japan and got her shit together I had to admit that she's maturing and becoming a professional, and her edits don't bother me that much. She's really pretty even in the IRL videos and photos and I have to admire her learning Japanese so fluently. I'm still sure that it was Kiki's and her messed up family's influence that made her a cow before her escape.

The thread is just full of skin walkers who want to eat Dakota to become her. It's embarrassing how high the a-logging levels are in there, people screeching about how she's getting fat (what?) and how all the agencies are dropping her, she's not getting work etc. All shit that doesn't hold water at all. And when they run out of things to nitpick, they start bringing up age-old drama from around 10 years ago.

Nobody needs to diagnose the ana-chans here. They out themselves all the time. For example on the vent thread there is one who posted a few hours ago. They keep nitpicking on many people's weight on this site when their weight have nothing to do with their milky antics and derailing everything to weight discussions. The discussions on the threads >>271615 cited and Dakota's threads are another example of how much some Ana-chans spend of their time nitpicking other people's weight. To mentally healthy people, that's not interesting or funny at all. Sure, fat people can be hilariously cringy and disgusting, but the level of obsession I see here is not healthy at all. The fact you are super defensive someone got called ana-chan because she said all healthy people should have showing ribcages or some shit like that makes me think you're perhaps that person.

thank you for this. women being gaslit into romanticizing exploitative and abusive power structures that already exist in every other part of our lives is not normal or a normally developed 'kink' like the way sub men have had the freedom to develop their kinks or interests. 50 shades is disgusting and disturbing and so is all female submissive shit.

Plus having a shitty partner doesn't make the other person shitty.
It's probably more the case that they have a personality ie. forgiving, generous, likes to fight for the underdogs, etc. that can get taken advantage of by manipulators and abusers.

Being naive or wanting to see the good in people doesn't make someone a shit person.

I'm so conflicted about 50 Shades. One one hand, I do believe the likes of 50 Shades and Twilight glamorise controlling, abusive relationships and I'm happy when people call them out. I tried reading 50 Shades and the plot really did read like a fanfic, the sex scenes usually made me laugh and there was nothing likable about Christian. The part where Christian admits to seeking out women who look like his mother to abuse them was disgusting and I'm genuinely surprised people still supported the series and pined for Christian after that.

But I can appreciate that some women did enjoy the series and I'm not going to judge people for having a guilty pleasure when I have plenty of my own. I also feel like the majority of the critics of the two series have a problem with the fact that they're books written by women, for women. They're dismissed as "mommy porn" or "chicklit" without getting into any of the reasons they actually disliked the two (and in a lot of cases I've found, it's men who have never even read the books saying this who are just jumping on a bandwagon). People find the idea of marketing books towards teen girls or moms or just women in general as offensive, it's a real teen boy mentality when people think it's "icky" that women over 30 have a sex life or to shun anything "girly". You don't see John Green getting the same criticism for his books as Stephanie Meyer and you don't see anyone writing off cheesy fantasy or sci-fi books as "trash" without reading them first.

I wish we had better YA fiction or erotica make it to the bestsellers list but I feel like until we do it's almost a duty of mine to support what's out there to promote more being published, if that makes sense.

No. 272164

John Green and Stephanie both got shit on and loved though?
They both got movie deals and big fandoms that people both hate and love.
They're both atrocious authors who made it, John is just coveted more since he is known for xyz other things so ofc just by notoriety hes gonna get more reviews (atleast of the positive kind)
50SOG started out as a Twilight fanfiction and envisioning a grown woman writing about a highschool girl getting slammed by her centuries old bf is revolting and from what i've experienced internet&irl it's been a generational split in who found fault in 50SOG not male reviewers calling it mommy porn with no viable evidence.

I mean everyone and their mom made "articles" about how unhealthy 50sog when it peaked and the authors we're a mixed bag yet nobody i saw reduced it down to 'yuck mommy porn!'

(also i can't get behind anybody supporting the literature, the women who do support this are the women who give power to terms like chicklit and even greater leverage to the men who use the terms)

No. 272419


your reasoning is fucking retarded. people don't have children cause they want to take care of something, but because they want to make their kid. it's about wanting to create a life with your partner. wanting a child in the first place is about selfishness. living your own life is about selfishness, so nitpicking this is super dumb. it's no one's job to take in kids that are a result of someone else's mistake. you can apply this to anything else and it sounds just as dumb.

No. 272424

that's not true. there ARE people that purely want to nurture life, and those people adopt. i agree that it's largely predicated on selfishness, but many people claim they want to help innocent children blossom into good people. the reasoning for having "your own kid" in 2018 when humans are facing serious existential threat because of climate change inaction, pollution, etc, is fucking retarded. idc that they want their kid to have their eyes. if they're that petty and prioritize "muh genes!!" over the well being of their children (which is inarguable at this point because earth is soon to become inhabitable thanks to overpopulation, pollution, and climate change) then they shouldn't be parents. children that are already born deserve a good life. it's not about "taking care of other people's mistakes" (how callous are you?), it's about sparing innocent children that are already born from terrible lives.

if people WANT to nurture children, they should adopt. and there's a difference between being selfish, and being too selfish to be a good parent. good parents wouldn't choose to have their own children.

Being a casual K-pop listener I would've been interested in the thread it was supposed to be like but I have no tolerance for the PULL tier "ew look at this fat fuck who actually looks like a goddamn model" a-logging. And of course they also shoehorn in some retarded SJW discourse shilling with stupid ass statements like "G-Dragon is a racist because he wears dreads".

They’re called mommy porn or chicklit because they ARE trash though. Jodi picoult and her ilk aren’t writing anything groundbreaking or particularly amazing.

There’s plenty of female writers with excellent works and they’re highly respected for it, without ever being called chick lit.

No. 272490

lmao, that's not why they don't adopt. they don't adopt because they're selfish. again, as i explained, if they were actually conscientious and capable emotionally and mentally of being a good parent, they wouldn't be having their own children. it doesn't matter how long it takes to adopt or how frustrating it may be, because it's unethical and dangerous for the child, at this point, to give birth. if you can't put the well-being of your potential child first during a time in human history that is very uncertain, you're a shit person that shouldn't be a parent. the complications of adoption are basically irrelevant.

You do realize that genes and biology are innately selfish, right?

His features used to be cute but once they matured he looks just… busted. Say what you want, women age a lot better than men and the only reason people think it's the other way around is because they 1. judge men's attractiveness by their wealth and achievements, and 2. have strict as fuck standards for women that automatically disqualify anyone above 30 from being attractive.

I'll settle because looks aren't everything and everyone gets old one day, and mentally I'd have nothing in common with someone that much younger.

No. 272600

Aren't 18-25 year olds kind of always considered more attractive than 40 year olds, even when you yourself (as the onlooker) are much older? It's not really fair, but youth is associated with beauty and all. Correct me if I'm wrong, though.
Actually pursuing them when you're a lot older is pretty creepy/predatory because of the imbalance in mental state and maturity, though.

Agreed, but there are some times where the thread goes back to its original purpose and good points are raised, so I wouldn’t say it’s a waste of a thread. The kp general thread should be far more active and include all gossip, even negative. The anti kp thread should be much less active ideally.

I feel zero sympathy for drug addicts. People excusing them because "he/she had a difficult childhood, etc." also wouldn't excuse somebody being violent because of a bad past either, so why with druggies? They're also making the life of their close ones hell.

The thing with Demi Lovato pissed me off so much. Yes, I get it she, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber and co. got famous too early blah blah, but does that mean they deserve to get supported (as in: let's throw millons at them)? Isn't it more of a sign that they actually aren't suited for being in the spotlight at all?

My little sister is a fan of them and then I asked her if she heard about Demi, she told me that "she drank too much and took other stuff and had to go the hospital, but now she's fine". Like no, this is not the same as normal adults sometimes overdoing it with alcohol, it's not even the same as weed, heroin is bottom of the barrel, the shit bums die of.
Why is anybody giving them work?

I know that this is not possible, but I wish there was a way to stop people like her, especially if their fan base is on average 13 years old, from getting so big.

Inbreeding isn't directly unhealthy for dogs, dogs are regularly line bred in the shooting and fieldwork breeds because a tight line is better than risking using another dog if you have a very good field dog. Purebreds and their health issues are a direct result of the kennel club pushing for extremes.
If you buy a mutt you're just teaching poor people that they can breed irresponsibly and make quick cash out of it imo.

No. 272905

Watching someone slowly poison themselves is painful. You see this person who you love, and even if you don’t see them drunk or slurring and stumbling, you see the premature aging, that their eyes are dull, that they are not happy.

You see how their reactions slow down and they become less pleasant as their addiction takes over and their emotions are blunted. They appear snippy, bored, or impatient with loved ones because they are preoccupied with when they can next use their drug of choice.

Alcohol and benzos are an excellent combination for death and accidental overdoses are common.

No. 272906

It doesnt sound like "making their lives hell" though. My addiction isn't "taking over" either, i've been using at the same amounts for over a year. And i never use benz and booze together unless it's a very small amount of alcohol. I've learned my lesson from that. I guess it sucks for them that im prematurely aging and that my eyes are dull, but im not less happy, and i dont think people get seriously fucked up emotionally from seeing these things.

100% this. Most people I know who care about the breed of their dog, don't even take good care of their dogs. "Cockapoos" and "Cavaliers" and "Huskies" or whatever is trending will go out of fashion and it's the reason shelters are inundated with senior dogs.

No. 272915

thanks for saying most people and not all people at least. I have a finnish lapphund because my family owns renideer and she's excellent at herding them and guarding the house. it just wouldnt be as efficient with a mutt. plus, she's gorgeous i have to admit there was a bit of superficial bias towards this breed.

No. 272922

No, I don’t have that idea at all.
I’m aware that a large proportion of addicts are self-medicating themselves for trauma, depression, personality disorders, or anxiety and that a lot of them are aware that their addiction has a negative impact on their lives.
Some become physically dependent after being medicated for pain or anxiety because they are very addictive drugs.

Not every addict is miserable but addiction and misery are still close bedfellows.

I can also see that you’re not interested whatsoever in anything outside of justifying your addiction and that it reeks of denial. Whatever, you do you.

No. 272932

yeah i totally understand the practical reasons for getting specific breeds of dogs, in which the dogs needs to be a pure bred like herding dogs or hunting dogs, truffle dogs, etc.

No. 273230

Kinkshaming is absolutely acceptable and even necessary if someone's fetish involves hurting themselves or others either physically or mentally, and we should get rid of this idea that everything is ok as long as it's between two consenting adults. If you notice that you're getting off to the thought (or worse, act) of beating the shit out of your partner until they're crying, your first thought should be "wow I need help", not "well this is completely normal and healthy, I want to go find like-minded people and get some validation". I'm so tired of seeing people enable those edgy doms that write about how much they love tying down and gagging their girlfriends and slapping them around until they're bruised. Link in >>272061 is relevant.
Also 24/7 BDSM relationships are trash. If your whole relationship revolves around sex, you need to rethink your life.

Apparently an unpopular opinion in the BDSM circles: gentledom is 100000 times better than any of the violent and degrading shit. It's so much better when you're told how beautiful you look and how much you're loved while being handled gently and lovingly, instead of all the violence, humiliation, spitting and slapping and "choke on my cock you worthless, dirty fucking whore"-tier dirty talk.

Nobody should have to ugly down to prove they're real people when the truth is it's completely normal to want beautiful, flattering pictures of themselves. Also considering the power of archiving, it makes complete sense why people don't want their uggo candids floating on the internet for forever.

Obviously this is different from people who shoop themselves into downs looking aliens due to body dysmorphia and claim that's what they look like 24/7 irl.

Yet nobody questions if an adult wants to get beat up, cut up, choked out and left bruised during sexual acts because for some twisted ass reason since they're fucking its somehow ok?
I find it ridiculous too this whole notion that "sub space" is a thing when its called dissociating and people think thats a coveted experience when its just an unhealthy as fuck practice.
Thanks to this 'no kinkshame' bs its helped pedo's gain traction with DDLG and people out here dare say things like
"Im a CSA victim it helps me cope!!"
Age 'regressing' while getting pounded by your "daddy" isnt a coping mechanism, its a tool for you to continue living in a perpetual state of romanticising what happened to you and relive the victimhood surrounded by your "aesthetic" even though I legitimately feel 99% of the people who do claim CSA victimhood and are into DDLG are profuse ass liars since I truly can't picture someone dumb enough to be perpetuating pedophilia while saying they're a csa victim.

For porn, it's always been shit, the industry has been filled with pedophiles and now they're more honest and open about it, they condition mens minds to believe that making the women as uncomfortable and as painful as possible its actually sexy and fun and women who dont want their tits to turn purple from rope and be anally fisted are boring prudes who are gonna hit the wall and wonder where all the good men gone, they dont even foreplay either, which I dont get because they beg for perfect tits and asses but dont even bother playing with them most of the time, whats the point of demanding a woman to have a perfect body if all you're gonna do is just kiss 3 times and shove it in dry?

Plastic surgery has gave men insane expectations of womens bodies, they expect boobs to look like perfect globes, pussies to look like that of a child, and asses that stick 4 feet out, it has fueled their ego to believe they all deserve submissive 4 feet subs with paper white skin and porn star tits, when you even dare hint porn is toxic they go on rants about how youre a gross prude

That graph is showing that there's almost as many gay men and lesbians (48%) as there are bisexual men and women (52%), which makes sense imo.

Bisexuals complain about lesbians because loud lesbian activists keep shitting on them and ostracizing them.

"Straight-passing privilege" is the stupidest fucking thing ever, you mean there aren't bi people in homosexual relationships or bi people looking for one?

Sexuality in general is rarely a static, non-fluctuating thing, you might go decades as a straight/gay person and then fall in love with the opposite/same gender. If the society wasn't so traditionally homophobic and if the LGBT community wouldn't pressure people to choose a side I'm pretty sure we would have a lot more bisexual people around.

What's the point in promoting recovery when you just jumped from a disordered focus on being skinny and revolving your life around it to having a disordered focus on having a giant ass and revolving your life around it?

my only gripe with canadian patriotism is the idea that it is some sort of racial paradise where racism doesnt exist, even though I'm pretty sure there have been multiple cases of cops leaving indigenous people out in the freezing cold way in the boonies to die. pretty anecdotal, but there are a lot of canadians in florida (old and young) and some of my white canadian friends are ~so shocked~ by how racist this country is. don't get me wrong, america is racist. but so is just about everywhere else

I feel like this about the supposedly feminist movements making sure everyone ever is called beautiful and gorgeous and perfect.
Instead of empowering anyone, they’re reducing people to a single trait that has no value outside of attracting a partner.

It’s such a coddled and ignorant mindset to have and some of the people doing act like they are heroic revolutionaries because they drew a cute person in a wheelchair or called someone with crouzons pretty.

I thought the point was to remind women that they are more than pretty little objects and that beauty is a trivial thing pressed upon women by old fashioned gender norms, blah blah patriarchy.

In my ideal world, neither would happen but it pisses me off that people get upset about poachers or the Yulin dog festival or people eating animals that are cooked live (lobsters, frogs, snails, octopus w.e) while tucking into a big meaty feast three times a day and denying that their food suffered the same amount.

I also hate when people start claiming that I should accept eating dogs/cats/other pets if I accept eating livestock, pet animals have been socialized as a part of day to day human interaction so yes, it's more inhumane to eat companion pets than livestock animals bred for centuries to produce food.

Of course I believe the livestock animals should be treated well and slaughtered under anesthesia, but I simply don't feel bad for eating them. I get the criticizing of the meat industry for environmental reasons though.

Have you ever seen any videos of domesticated animals? A pig has the same intelligence level as a cat or dog (or from what I heard is more intelligent).

No. 273921


Novelty Seeking, Inquisitiveness and Play
Play is found most predominantly in the most cognitively complex and adaptable nonhuman species, such as primates (Bencke, 2015), dogs (Bekoff, 2015), dolphins (Janik, 2015) and birds (Emery & Clayton,
2015). However, play behavior also exists in fish and reptiles (Burghardt, 2015), and the most cognitively complex invertebrates, such as the octopus (Zylinski, 2015). Therefore, play appears to be a marker of cognitive complexity.
Pigs, too, are playful animals (Donaldson, Newberry, Spinka, & Cloutier, 2002; Olsen, Simonsen, & Dybkjaer, 2002; Newberry, et al. 1988; Wood-Gush and Vestergaard, 1991, 1993), exhibiting a wide range of behaviors in this domain. A recent study of play behavior in pigs shows that they engage in quite complex types of play that include social play and object play (Horback, 2014). Common object play behaviors in pigs include shaking or carrying an object such as a ball or stick or tossing straw (Bolhuis, Schouten, Schrama, & Wiegant, 2005; Dudink, Simonse, Marks, de Jonge,& Spruijt, 2006; Newberryet al.,1988). Locomotor play includes waving/tossing of the head, scampering, jumping, hopping, pawing, pivoting, and gamboling (energetic running), flopping on the ground, and hopping around (Martin, Ison, & Baxter, 2015). Social play in pigs includes play fighting, pushing and running after each other (Horback, 2014). Many of these categories of play are combined and the behaviors are similar to play behavior in dogs and other mammals.

Social Cognition and Complexity
Dogs can not only discriminate among humans but they can tell the difference between a smiling human face and a neutral expression (Nagasawa, Murai, Mogi, & Kikusui, 2011). These kinds of capacities are not surprising in a species with a history of domestication that involved sensitivity to human cues. Yet pigs, too, can discriminate familiar and unfamiliar humans (Koba &Tanida, 1999; Tanida &Nagano, 1998), though perhaps not with the same degree of subtlety. In a study by Tanida and Nagano(1998), young miniature pigs were handled gently and fed treats for five weeks and then allowed to choose between the handler and a stranger in a Y-maze. The results showed that these pigs were able to discriminate between the handler and a stranger and there were a range of individual differences in the kinds of cues (e.g., olfactory, visual and auditory) each pig used. Surprisingly, olfaction appeared to be the least useful for the pigs in differentiating stranger from familiar handler. In general, this study showed that the pigs were able to use prior experience to discriminate between two humans.

From their own logical standpoint, every time you DON'T make use of a severely deformed/retarded human's body for scientific testing, leather, or even just your very first man-kebab, you're creating waste. We shouldn't even euthanize them unless we plan to use their bodies.

It's hard to say those things when you see a pig playing with your dog or when a chicken gets excited to see you because they remember when you hand raised them or when a cow asks you for a scratch, they're all things our pets do. So you keep telling yourself these little lies because "muh bacon", you try to see that shrink wrap meat as a "product" and not a beautiful animal who had a family, its own personality and just wanted to sit on the grass and enjoy the sun on its skin like we all do.

They are more complex and spiritual than us, they impart wisdom to each other in ?unknown? Ways, they know things without learning them.

They just can't vocalise the way we can therefore they're judged as stupid. Or they disobey orders because free will, and that too is judged as stupidity. So being "silent" and disobedient means we should eat them. Troubling thought process

You're just making any excuse to defend looking down on other living creatures, and it's sad. It's one thing to eat meat. Hell, animals eat animals. It's the circle of life (though whether we humans need to do it is a debate in itself). But, it's a special kind of shitty to try and rob the animals you eat of their status as beings on this planet that feel pain, can reason and are/were just trying to survive. We're not the exact same, but we all have sex, take shits, feel the urge to survive and love our own kind. When we die, we all sink into the ground, get eaten by the same worms and mix with the exact same shit, dirt and water. Nature doesn't care about your technological advancements, or that you used to browse Lolcow. Humans are not special, lmao.
Maybe none of this would be happening if people were forced to hunt and kill their own meat instead of just picking up bacon at the supermarket.

Give a human a course in survival for three months or half a year and they will, while probably not ideally, but they will. A cow is essentially a neutered creature that won't even try to escape a field if it's surrounded by a thin copper wire that gives a small electric zap, and would also die if not given water for several days. Most cow breeds have their animalistic instincts bred out of them thanks to hundreds of generations of selective breeding. Just because hogs are less removed from boars doesn't in the slightest mean that their adaptability to a wild environment is ideal. Pigs and such would be an ideal prey to any larger predator which would just increase wild predator population.

No. 274046

How many humans would actually take that course or follow it instead of dying pitifully when left to the elements because they have depression, a low attention span, ADHD, etc?

Literally not true, biologically every animal has an instinctual mechanism for self preservation as pain is just a response to a negative stimuli. Animals of the same species are more than willing to hurt each other for various reasons such as territory or mating privileges, so it's not like animals will never be in pain if people are out of the picture. Also to understand death you need cognition (and not the level of a toddler that most "cognitive" animals posses), as most children only begin to grasp that concept at 5 and don't fully understand it until they're between 8 or 10.

i have a sister that moved to texas and she was so excited to try HEB. boy was she disappointed.

idk if you've ever been to florida/georgia, but we have publix here and absolutely everyone looses their fucking shit over their food. while i will admit, their baked loaves are fucking delicious everything else is mediocre at best. their fried chicken is 60% breading, their subs taste like a typical sandwich, all their premade sides are shit, their sushi is shit…with the exception of the bakery i will never understand the hype

(Un)fortunately she had a second kid a couple years ago so she can get her forced selfie fix for attention from her daughter.

If you are a youtuber or have a patreon as your main source of income, that is not a real job.

Raising minimum wage will not ultimately change anything. If you want a raise, do something about it or earn it.

Because the topic of "blackfacing" is surfacing again and the topic will just not die, here's my unpopular opinion: black cosplayers who complain about blackface are just jealous they don't get automatic asspats for making shitty cosplays and it's incredibly petty and entitled to start whining over the amount of white characters vs. black characters to stop people from tanning their skin to cosplay their favourite character. Why are black people always victimizing themselves and being overall aggressive? They can't shut up about the "racism in cosplay" which usually means that they didn't get as much instagram likes as a white cosplayer or some photographer didn't take their photo. I hate how someone like me living in a 100% white country on the other side of the world has to abide by the rules set by American blacks and care about their issues.

They go crazy with low self esteem that they just aren't the standard of beauty(thin, tiny, short etc) because they're use to being "normal". When I went to east Asia I didn't really care about not being attractive or whatever because it is what I'm use to lol

As a thin attractive white woman you can basically get any guy in Asia, as long as your speak the native language well enough. The men who compare white women to asian women are stupid too, because it mustly boils down to “white women are fat ugly whores, not the ugu waifus that will stay pure for me” while also ignoring the fact that asian girls sleep around, and that they are ignoring all of the fat asian girls because they have more balls approaching thin asian women because they dont intimidate them like skinny pretty white women.

Yeah but not in the way they want to, I reckon. Being fuckable isn't something to brag about. I've seen white women with no interest in Asian men saying they felt 'too big' in Japan, it was mostly Americans.

There are so many people who claim they were sexually abused, on the internet. Imo there are two possibilities, either it was kept under the rug and people feel more comfortable talking about it… or they're lying. Everyone is abused on the internet.

No. 275691

Are you talking from personal experience?

No. 275694

Sexual abuse is just that prevalent.
I think people are more prone to admit it online for the fact that they are less likely to be stigmatized.
Admitting this sort of thing irl rarely comes up in discussion (I mean what casual conversations have you ever been in where people talk about their past abuses just like that?), and also because it's putting themselves in a vulnerable position to be judged.
I'd rather be called a liar by some anonymous who on the internet than called a liar irl by someone I trusted like a friend or family member. People not believing abuse stories just makes the person who legitimately told the truth suffer twice.

No. 275700

I know, but usually with someone who's been abused you can see it in their behaviour. There would be signs of trauma. Everyone, everyone I know is healthy, rich and have a succesful social life. Most of them bully other people if anything.

Therapists are always recommended for any kind of mental issue no matter how minor, but I just don't think these "professionals" are all that good with helping people anymore. The market is saturated with therapists who bring their biases to work, are just there to collect a paycheck, and legitimately don't care about their clients. Sometimes they even make it worse or ward people off from seeking any kind of help again.

In truth I think most people are better off getting prescribed meds by their physicians and maybe seeking out online help or group meetups if anything. Individual therapy seems low bar and a ripoff.

No. 275799

The most unempathetic, gossipy bitch I ever knew became a therapist and it turned me off of therapy for years.

No. 276028

>10,000 BC is a misunderstood masterpiece
I’m extremely intrigued by this. Explain, please?
It’s been a really long time since I saw 10,000 BC (like eight years ago), but I remember it being really stylistic schlock like Suckerpunch, which I admittedly enjoyed just for the visuals. Also, minor tangent, but I had no idea Roland Emmerich was gay until just now.

I find it really hard to believe that the climate change is 100% due to humans. Earth has gone through massive climate changes on its own for all of its existence and 95% of human populace is centered to 10% of the land mass. How can we ever produce enough shit to cause a planet of 510 100 000 square kilometers to be ruined?

I care about the environment of course and wish that there would be more solutions to getting rid of all the plastic waste and pollution, but telling me that the modern industry has fucked the planet completely in just 50 years sounds uncanny to me. And even if it is true, I'm still mad over the climate change organizations shaming your regular average person for it when it's the massive companies producing all the waste and/or not getting rid of it. And don't get me wrong, I really do believe that humans have affected the climate, but over 100% of it? What?

Also I hate it when I see people running in to sperg out with their "hurrr making children is the worst thing you could do to our planet hurr" when discussing this. it's so fucking edgy it makes me cringe myself to death

I was always a firm believer of the climate change, but then I learned in a history class that during the middle ages you were able to grow wine grapes in Norway. Fast forward 400 years and it was so cold that it snowed in July in Germany.

Honestly, this is what therapists should do. I have a ton of friends who have been to therapy and if the therapist has been a coddling piece of shit that enables and validates their sick behavior, they're never getting anywhere. If the therapist just shuts them up and tells them that their behavior is not acceptable and they need to get their shit together, they'll be making process. I know people who have been in therapy for 10 years with no signs of improving because their therapists have just been a dumping ground of emotions, not interactive people who want to see their patients get better.

They're bitching at people who would have one or two (or none at all) kids anyway when they should be hammering it in to the white trash families who give birth to 5 kids and counting. They completely misunderstand the point and causes of overpopulation and usually spew it just to be edgy and an ~intellectual~.

Fat acceptance is a cancerous movement. It’s not because I care about your health, I find you unsightly. A bit of chub doesn’t bother me, but these obese swamp donkeys talking about curves drives me up the wall. Curves are not the same as rolls and you have no right to delude yourself you are curvy and desirable. When you begin to make others uncomfortable around you by taking up half of the person sat next to you’s seat while your moist thigh engulfs their leg, you should probably quit being selfish and lose some weight.

Also homeless people should be stuck on a rocket and launched in to the sun. I hate how they ask me for the money I’ve worked hard for doing a job I don’t enjoy while they expect me to give it to them to buy smack out of pity. How much of a shitty fuck up of a person must you be where not one single person you’ve met in your life will spare you a sofa until you get a job and your own home to live. You are telling me not one single person, friend or family wants to lend you a hand? Did you do something bad? Steal from them? Not bother looking for a job? Spend all day drinking or doing drugs, being aggressive or violent when they lended you a hand so they gave up and now you expect me to pity you??? Do some community service, pick up some litter, WORK! Be a credit to your community other than an absolute aesthetically unpleasant waste of space and I might spare some change. Better yet, one way ticket to the sun m8.

You're the first person who's honest about this. Anyway, you don't get to dictate what is unsightly and what's not. What is beautiful is what every person in particular likes, and preferences are different.

No. 276301

That's not entirely true. People who are actually retarded are just slower than normal, not totally braindead. They can still understand what's being said to them. I don't say anything when people call stuff retarded cause it's really not that big of a deal, but I do think people should be more careful about who they say it around. My neighbor's little brother is autistic. I'm not sure if he'd be considered low-functioning or whatever, but he's pretty slow intellectually. But it still hurts his feelings when the other kids call him retarded cause it's clearly meant to be derogatory towards him. Calling it the R-word is a bit dramatic, but I can see why many people find it hurtful.

socihutys beuhtuh standhurds is not something invented by the patriarchy. It’s because the majority of us find you unsightly because it’s human nature to be repulsed. Those who find morbidly obese women attractive have psychological issues (especially feeders).
And it’s not just you’re unsigtly - you are greedy and selfish. You bump in to people, you demand more space, you take up more than one seat and expect those around you to stand or be squished under your rolls, you smell more potent and you expect everyone else to accommodate for you and shops to accommodate for your life choices. You make those you cross paths with more miserable than opposed to if you were half the size.

Haha, so "masterpiece" was maaaybe hyperbolic. Stylistically it is no better or worse than other Emmerich movies, so it's a low standard, but most criticisms against it have relied on it being anachronistic, historically inaccurate and portraying a super-unrealistic plot. Like no shit. It's not a movie about history, it's a movie about how legends and myths are created. The whole plot is a legend, and it's spelled out pretty blatantly, it doesn't have to be realistic in any way.
On top of that I have my own sperg theory about how it ties into the Stargate universe (lol), so it doesn't have to actually portray OUR human history 10,000 BC).
Fun fact, mammoths existed up until ~6,000 years ago.

Million Dollar Baby was a way worse movie than Shakespeare in Love. It didn't find a tone and had an undecipherable moral message. Clint Eastwood is massively overrated as a filmmaker, the only thing that ever semi-rescues any of his movies is when he has an excellent cast (excepting himself because he only ever plays the same character). Every aspect of Gran Torino was dilettantish (tone, dialogue, message, acting) and it showed because here he couldn't rely on the cast.

I haven't seen the Green Mile in ages so I can't really defend that opinion well, I just remember hating it because the plot felt so tropey and the supernatural aspect was kind of shoehorned in and unnecessary.

For Indiana Jones I guess I'm just contrarian.

No. 276344

I know autistic people aren't retarded. I was trying to make the point that the word retarded isn't only directed at actually retarded people. People would just call him that as a synonym for stupid or freak, even though he didn't suffer from mental retardation. That's generally the main qualm people have with using the word retarded - they're not using it as a descriptor for a retarded person, but they just use it as an insult. It doesn't only affect retarded people, but it can be especially hurtful and confusing to them when the word for their condition is the same as a childish insult.

Basically if people ask you to stop calling them something or to stop saying a certain word around them (within reason and yes I think retarded is within reason), you should stop. No it's not the worst word ever, but using it just makes you look like an edgy middle schooler.
