I don't understand why people say this about cats. I volunteered at my local animal shelter once, in the cat room, and for as many cats that were aloof and wanted nothing to do with me, there were just as many that wanted my attention/rubbed themselves on me/jumped on top of whatever counter I was cleaning to ask for pets/followed me around.

No. 373510

How is this reeing about dogs? It's true, people try to treat cats (me other pets) like dogs, don't get the affection-seeking response they expect, and think they are soulless and hateful as a result. Like, every time. They're both completely different kinds of pets and holding every pet to the standard that if it doesn't seek attention and affection that it's shit is patently false. Pets have value beyond being affectionate, selfless or even loyal.

No. 373512

you see this same reaction when people interact with dogs who aren't stereotypically affectionate as well. service dogs, breeds that are known for being aloof like shibas and even just individuals who don't like a lot of attention or are nervous/past trauma etc., people get real personally offended if the dog doesn't respond to affection or avoids it. they just can't comprehend an animal who doesnt make humans the center of their world and think therefore they are useless as pets.

t. volunteered at humane society for 10 years, groom dogs for a living and own two rescue dogs, one of which is a greyhound who despises 99% of people.

No. 373519

There are plenty of animals that are nothing like dogs and are still better than cats overall, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, rats, but worse than cats are often their owners; in particular those that let them roam and refuse to desex them.

Unrelated to what you said here’s a really hard to swallow pill though, people who prefer the company of animals because they ‘don’t judge them’? They absolutely would if they had the capacity to like those around you, if you’re unable to connect to the people around you or find that they avoid you then you most likely have an awful personality or you have poor sense of hygiene.

No. 373525

Yeah sorry, but that's bs. Cats definitely get attached to their humans and show affection.

I totally get it if someone's not a fan of how you have to go slow and steady with cats, and would rather have the straightforward and overwhelming affection from a dog. But to say that cats don't care about anything or anyone at all, that's just a straight up lie.

No. 373530


Yeah I've had a rabbit before and taken care of cats in the past. Rabbits and cats are pretty similar in comparison to dogs and cats. Rabbits are like the vegan cat. I don't think cat are weird, they act like every other pet.

No. 373549


Anon, I can’t speak for everyone but some of us who feel more comfortable with animals do so because people can be cruel. I know that it may be difficult for you to understand why someone isn’t crazy about other humans, but if you ask someone without judgment or making generalizations that if you do x it must be because of y, there’s often a legitimate reason stemming from a feeling of pain and loneliness. People on a whole aren’t that great. It’s just the few who are wonderful that make life a little more bearable.

No. 373550

Does being shy and nervous in social situations count as an awful personality?
I don't get anxious around my cat (or tarantula lol) because they don't expect me to converse with them, which I'm not great at with strangers. Also am kind of ugly. I'm clean, just got an ugly face and humans can judge me for that but other animals won't.

Never had cats of my own, but last year I did catsitting and the two cats I was watching were sweet and affectionate as fuck, always following me around, purring loudly and giving me headbumps even when I was doing my own business. I used to buy into the "cats aren't social and loving like dogs" story too once, but I realized that the mistake was treating cats the way you treat dogs, and expecting them to behave like dogs. They're different, but their love is real too.

No. 373736

my cats sleep on my head or right next to me every night, will start purring when i look at them, demand affection constantly, etc. i've owned and fostered 18 cats throughout my life and the same thing basically happens every time. you can't demand affection from your friends and just expect your friends to fawn all over you. it does take time to develop a relationship with your cat/with cats and maintain trust. it's in their best interest and safety that they be able to 'vet' people before being vulnerable with them. why and how is this a fault of theirs?

why do people think an animal's willingness to put themselves in danger by being vulnerable with anyone is a positive? that's a very bad thing. a very scary thing. imagine chiding children for not being affectionate soon enough and not being doting and subservient soon enough and then considering hesitation or boundaries "not liking" or "not caring about" others.

No. 373739

What? Womanlet and manlet? It was kind of joke-y in my first post since I'm not actually short. And people use manlet here sometimes (albeit as an insult to invaders).

Kinda ot about what yall are replying about but
>imagine chiding children for not being affectionate soon enough and not being doting and subservient soon enough
This happened to me as a child all the fucking time, it's how a lot of little girls were socialized before the 2000s until anyone started to give a fuck. Give a fuck about the curious case of training kids that they have no bodily autonomy, no right to say 'no' to 'affection,' and to always defer to people claiming they have authority.
I was forced to give hugs and kisses to people when I didn't want to, be touched when I didn't want to be touched, be polite even if I didn't want the attention, etc.
Know what happened to me when a man with authority molested me and yelled at me that what he was doing was actually okay? That's right, nothing.
It's fucked and it happens. People are just as mental to their own children as they are to dogs and cats.

This generated interesting discussion last time, I'll post it again here if that's OK.

>Ideal BMI is somewhere around 19. Everything else is excessive. The "thick" trend in particular is just vulgar, and causes women to aspire towards looking like a sex doll.

>The "plant mom" aesthetic that you see in many homes (cacti! succulents!) is horrid.
>Pregnancy is more often than not a total scam for women.
>It is selfish to bring other people into this world.
>Women who are actually competent at their job don't face sexism in fields that don't have a lot to do with networking (mainly STEM). If you're talented, your work should speak for itself. If you're deterred from pursuing a certain career because of what other people have told you, you have no conviction and consequently wouldn't succeed anyway.
>It is a confidence issue that causes women to appear aggressive or "bitchy" when being assertive. It is totally possible for a woman to be assertive without acting like she's compensating for something. The problem isn't other people, it's how we raise little girls.
>People who wear makeup every day and people who get plastic surgery are on the same level of vanity/"fakeness"/etc. (Usually, I find that plastic surgery has more of a stigma surrounding it. In both cases, you're just spending money for your face/body to look a certain way.

No. 373963

Yeah, it's nonsense. Low libidos are real, libidos so low they are practically non existent are real, but what are the chances it's affecting a bunch of young, otherwise healthy girls? The common denominated is tumblr bullshit combined with insecurity, discomfort and inexperience when it comes to sex and being viewed sexually. Which is also understandable but not likely to be some permanent, complete lack of a sex drive that is so significant it needs a label.

I think if true asexuality existed that wasn't a medical/mental issue, it would be impossible for them to perceive their own sexual orientation. Like, the way a 100% straight person feels about the same sex or a 100% gay person feels about the opposite sex, that's how an asexual would feel about both. But they always seem to have a preference one way or the other, like Kenna obsessing over anime and kpop boys. Actually, in her case I think she's just so infatuated with perfect characters and idols that being into a regular human being is unfathomable to her… thus 'asexual'.

And I think you hit Kenna's personality right on the head lol Admitting she's only into husbandos is better than what she's doing now.

We must be around different asians, because majority of those in my area (which is filled to the brim with Asian international students) have the most god awful skin I have ever seen. The acne scars they have leave behind craters that look like they belong on a moon.
But in all seriousness I’m very skeptic so to believe that somehow one race, and specifically only on portion of said race, has magical genetics that gives them all flawless skin. Please, it’s like believing that they all come from the womb highly skilled and intelligent when in reality it’s that past generations valued education and success very highly and had strong work ethic which they would push onto their children from a young age - I say past generations because a lot of the asians I’m around now seem to have taken to heart the meme that they’re just inherently superior and seem genuinely dumbfounded that they don’t achieve better results than other races when they put in absolutely zero effort.

Winter? Cold and gross.
Summer? Sweaty and the days are too long.
Spring? Rainy and causes allergies.

I live in the southern USA so my Winters are fairly mild and it's definitely my favorite season.

yes, there's tons of gimicky nonsense products, and you def don't need a 10 step, but there's some gems in asian skincare. Things that make sense are sunscreens, vitamin C, acids, retinol, etc. It's not all a scam.

I agree, I think people who say they really love winter have never really lived in a place with a lot of snow and ice. I moved down to the south a few years ago and I really don't miss it.
Among the things I don't miss
>having to shovel snow every morning
>having to start my car 30 minutes before going anywhere to defrost and thwack ice off my windshield
>getting my boots and shoes soaked in salty slush, which was sometimes enough to soak through into my socks and make me uncomfortable all day
>employers demanding their employees report to work even in dangerous driving conditions
>car's paint job getting ruined quicker due to salt and dug up pavement from plows
>everything looks dirty after a few days from a fresh snowfall from the salt, melt, and mud
>having to layer up to bear the cold outside, but then sweating my ass off whenever I went inside someplace because of the heat turned up
>electric bill more expensive because of heating requirements

Summer here is awful, it’s dry and we have fires, UV ratings that are always in the extreme, droughts, hardly ever cloudy so the sun just glares down at you, heatwaves that drive up electricity bills to an insane amount and this year we hit 48c

No. 374143

The weirdest thing that happened to me during a southern summer is that my car dashboard warped, and it's a bit annoying to wait for the a/c to really kick up but it's usually there in five minutes plus I just roll down the windows. It's really nothing like a snowstorm lol, but I say that as a person who experienced 9 feet of snow the year before I moved to a warmer state.

Humidity is kind of a bitch but in some places there's dry heat so people don't always have to deal with that, whereas snow is plain cold universally.

Obviously I’m not talking about employers, but I remember as a kid that my mum had friends she hated and would always vent after seeing them and I could not for the life of me understand why she didn’t just stop seeing them. As an adult I now don’t humour anyone that doesn’t improve the quality of my life in some way

No. 374155

It's starting to go away, but I think it's moreso that women were socialized to entertain conversations and to not assert themselves if it would cause a conflict or possible negative reaction. And to be fair, with how psychotic some men get, sometimes it's understandable how some women would not want to risk offending them.

No. 374161

I totally agree with you, but to be fair I went through patches of that attitude that you say your mother had at periods of my life due to self esteem issues. Like I'd hype myself up and get excited about hanging out with someone because I'm normally introverted but then find the actualexperience somewhat disappointing irl. Plus sometimes I'd have really well intentioned friends be fucking annoying and it was pissing me off but I'd get mad about it after. Like one of my mates went into my bedroom amd complained it was messy one day and started randomly cleaning it up and looking through my shit. I get she felt close like she could trust me and was trying to be helpful but it annoyed me no end. Sometimes I can't tell if the person is at faultor it's me exaggerating so I just usually blame it on a bad interaction and try again.
I get mad but don't vent to anyone in particular though

Lip tint really is god tier imo. It just makes your lips look a different colour with no particular texture, it doesn't look like it's slathered in product the way lipstick or gloss does. It lasts ages and doesn't rub off, it's cheap, it can be as bright or natural looking as you want, I love it.

I mean…I lived in Jersey and it got fucking cold and we would have huge snowstorms and I loved that shit. Now I live in Florida and I'm miserable mostly year round because it's always so fucking warm. Although I can't really enjoy winter now either, because I now have fibro and my bones feel like glass when it's cold lol.

The people who live in racially homogeneous areas or countries have no right to stereotype other areas as being racist

It's very easy to live in a 99% white neighborhood and think you're not at all racist, and to look down at people from the deep south or other areas for their racism. But there are challenges that come with living in an ethnically and racially diverse area that these people are completely unaware of. Take the average person from Washington State, Denmark or any other yuppie neighborhood and dump them in an actual ethnically or culturally diverse area, and you'll find that they'll have experiences that will turn them just as 'racist' as the people they once condescended.

It comes across as tasteless to me. I live in an ethnically and culturally diverse area and while I love where I live, I recognize that for many people the situation easily leads itself to racism. The way cultures and people stratify socially and economically leads itself easily to jealousy and fear. I've seen people close to me over the years become more radical with their racism as it appears to them that their lifestyle is threatened by migrants, and while I don't think that's necessarily true, I can at least understand their perspective on the issue.

I keep seeing this ad about Nashville, Tennessee being like 50% female-owned businesses now (or sth), and I just can't help but think that's like, them prioritizing white women over nonwhite men for business loans and shit.

No. 374460

This is an odd viewpoint to me, because the most racist people I've seen are typically from ethnically homogeneous places, not diverse ones. They read outdated propaganda about how all […] people are bad or not truly human, or they've flat-out never seen someone who doesn't look like them, so they don't know how to act around them and feel kind of nervous/paranoid or outright hateful.

Adults who are still obsessed with Harry Potter are weird and embarrassing. The fact that there are 25 year olds who still say their favorite book is a Harry Potter installment is sad. Yes, I get that you loved the books and movies as a child but you don't need to make the fact that the online quiz said you're a hufflepuff into your entire personality and have your life revolve around it.

Actually people who base their entire personality off of any one thing like that are fucking weird. But I feel like the Harry Potter obsession is the most pervasive and socially acceptable. There are so many adults (some of which wouldn't have even been children when HP first came out) who are still obsessed with the books and movies, which are about literal children! The harry potter subreddit is the cringiest thing - full of tattoos, home decor, engagements, weddings, etc. And according to them if you aren't rabidly obsessed or don't care for the series you're immediately a disgusting heartless heathen who didn't have a childhood.

The ridiculous theories that they come up with and the over analysis of a series written for children is insane. It's not that deep. Don't even get me started on the degeneracy J.K. Rowling is attempting to insert into all of it in order to stay relevant

That's fair. Like I said, I don't think it's automatically cringy if you're an adult who reads YA books. I just hate the subculture of pretentious adults who like to call themselves bookish/well-read but only read YA and act superior and smug for it anyway.

I also feel like a lot of people like this focus more on peacocking and humble bragging and less about actually reading and discussing books. It's all about having a huge bookshelf of overpriced hardcover editions of the latest trendy YA series and doing stupid shit for the aesthetic like arranging your huge book collection by cover color, because fuck being able to easily find a specific book, right?

No. 375350

God, I fucking hated reading Shakespeare in middle and high school. Why should you read a play when it's meant to be performed? Especially because the language in Shakespeare plays is not something that 99% of high school kids want to slug through. Maybe I'm a retard but I only liked being taught Shakespeare when we watched a film adaptation alongside it, because then things actually made sense, and it was easier to appreciate the wordplay and such.

I understand some plays are a little more obscure and don't have a movie version or a recorded theater performance, but it's fucking Shakespeare, for crying out loud. I'm gonna guess that almost any Shakespeare play that's being taught in high school probably has multiple movie adaptations.

No. 375413

Any teacher that doesn't work to bring Shakespeare to life by showing the class comparisons of different adaptations or some other way should be fined. Shakespeare is so easy to make into a fun thing, there are rude jokes and interesting insights about the culture of his times for a start, there should be no excuse to just leave kids with the scripts and hope they get on with it.

I can still see the importance of teaching his works since it covers usage of literary devices, language history and how just knowing his work unlocks many cultural "in jokes" even in current media. But if a teacher isn't going to make it accessible then kids could learn probably as much from studying Friends.

again, honestly, i dislike dogs very much, but violence is in like, all dog genes, anon. come on. they're being bred too much and the owners are sickos, that's why there are so many occurrences. not that they're especially violent, it's just that they're the dog du jour that's now suffering the consequences of human 'training' and mistreatment. statistics show that their temperament is not unlike the temperament of most other dogs, and is actually under 'aggressive' when compared to other dogs. they're just larger and more muscular with stronger bite force than those dogs, so they inflict more damage.

No. 375616

Majority of dogs have been bred for companionship first and foremost, pit bulls to begin with were bred to be guard dogs which is why they have such strong jaws and quick reactions, because of these traits they’ve now been bred to be fighting dogs.

Most dogs aren’t violent in nature but aren’t being put to work like intended, say sheepdogs or terriers - they were bred to have high energy levels and most people are sedentary now so they have nowhere to focus that energy

We’ve fucked up all domestic animals with our breeding and now sedentary lifestyles, look at sheep who now have to have their tails docked because we no longer eat that part of their body and flies will eat them alive if we keep their tails intact (other than maybe very small farms that can give each animal individual attention)

No. 375651

>they're just larger and more muscular with stronger bite force than those dogs, so they inflict more damage.
I.. I think that's pretty much the reason why people dislike them so much, anon. If a golden retriever bites you, it's usually only one bite and done to protect itself or its owner. If a pitbull bites you, it's due to you probably moving too much to trigger a response and because they're bred partly from terriers, they grab you in their jaws and shake you around until you're dead. Most other terriers are small (thus relatively harmless) in size and have this feature to hunt for small rodents, but because pitbulls are big fuckers they're bred to kill bigger prey.

No. 375689

nah, i always hear the argument as "THEY'RE INSANELY AGGRESSIVE WITH TERRIBLE TEMPERAMENTS AND MORE AGGRESSIVE THAN ALL OTHER DOGS", when it's simply not true. yes, they're much stronger and their method of attack is different, but their temperament is not unlike that of other dogs. in fact, lots of other dogs are actually more aggressive and temperamental. i personally believe almost all dogs are a risk to be around and prefer to not be around them at all, but i do think pitbulls are vilified a lot more because of the dog fighting shit. i feel bad for them though considering lots of 'family friendly' dogs actually have worse patterns of aggression on average though.

i'm not factually incorrect. pitbulls do cause more injury because of the fact that they are stronger with much more bite force and attack differently than other dogs. i already said that. that means that their attacks result in more severe injuries that necessitate intervention/operation. HOWEVER, their temperament is not unlike other dogs. they aren't especially aggressive in comparison to other dogs, they're just more dangerous because they're pure muscle with a different fighting/attack style.

and most studies concede that the frequency of pitbull attacks have more to due with the fact that pitbulls and pitbull mixes are becoming some of the most popular dogs thanks to assholes, not because they tend to be especially aggressive as a breed.

Adding to this–I hate how you're essentially looked down upon if you didn't hop on the Marvel train. The only superhero movies I even remotely enjoyed were Deadpool and Antman because the hero was goofy and weird. Iron Man is boring, Thor is boring, and Captain America is boring.

They had us read the Samurai's Garden in high school and I fucking loved it. It's one of the few books that made me cry.

Cats are more violent than dogs in my experience. They're also less sanitary than dogs (Google it, their saliva has way more harmful bacteria than dogs).

The only thing I hate more than Bernie Sanders are his pathetic Chapo Traphouse fan boys who are still too stupid to realize that he cannot and will not win. The primary will just go on longer than it should. He’s a shitty and unappealing candidate to leveryone outside of white men and the white women pick mes who desperately want to seem cool (I’m white too so don’t @ me). They’ll just prattle on about ~kamala is a cop~ and how everyone else sucks compared to their beloved Bernie and then cry and not vote. So looks like we will end up with Trump again, who honestly I would rather have over bernie’s dumb ass.

Jesus Christ, no need to be an asshole. I didn’t literally mean “looked down on”, I meant that I get comments sometimes about not enjoying the films. You’re taking it the extra step by also being a twat about it. It’s the same as when you say you don’t like Harry Potter or certain shows that’re super popular, you have people who question why you don’t.

I read the books when I was around 12 and thought they were too childish for me even at that age. I simply can't understand people well into their 20's and 30's who gush over this franchise. It's one thing to say "Hey I really thought that series was a good experience and I have fond memories of it" when you're 28 but getting hundreds of dollars of merch and not being able to shut up about the lore? At least nerd out with something that isn't meant for literal children.

So while I doubt it'll ever be made illegal, I do think there is merit to doing this and here is why.
Both lolicons and furries have been outed time and time again on discord servers and other online communities to be instigating IRL sexual relations with minors and animals. This is very unlike people with rape kinks (also a gross fetish), who can get their fix through consensual BDSM and don't develop communities specifically with the purpose of coming up with grooming tactics and exchanging smut videos.
We do know lolicons and furries both almost always end up in grooming related communities and the drawn porn is a catalyst. It's a matter of when, not if, they will end up hurting an animal or a child. They always end up going online to groom kids or adopting animals to rape them. They don't stop at cartoons, they do seek live action footage and then escalate it to seeking IRL experiences.

So for the reason they have a tendency to create communities and discuss grooming techniques, I think you could probably make a case to ban them in a country that isn't the US.

idek why 'bisexual women' come out? do people really care so much that you need to 'come out'? unless you're in an actual relationship with a woman, why do you need to do a whole 'coming out' thing? it honestly feels like all of the 'coming out' female bisexuals are laineytier, i'm sorry. i see how coming out makes sense for lesbians and gays, but unless bisexual people are going to date same sex people or are dating them, why even do the whole 'coming out' thing? it feels like a performance tbh

I only did with my best friend so I could talk about crushes, but there's no reason to come out to my parents unless I get a girlfriend. Although I can't convince even males to date me so I doubt that will ever happen lmao.

American and I agree with you. I really wonder sometimes how the seeming fixation on American politics takes away from political action in other countries. A lot of foreign people I've seen who have very strong opinions about US politics seem to just ignore the same or worse/different problems in their own country in favor of screeching about the US. (They never have a clear understanding of our government or culture when they do, unsurprisingly, how could you, even we don't get it fully)

No. 376531

I can understand wanting to be public with it if you're from a very backwards area, where everyone is homophobic. Sort of like taking a stand etc but it feels redundant making a deal about coming out if you move in liberal scenes, because it's almost the norm and nobody is going to be making gay jokes. Coming out as bi is a good way to get yourself out there there, so other girls can get you on their radar

No. 376958

it's so annoying and i HATE how i'm made to feel like shit because i'm not enthusiastic about the idea of wasting my life making other people money and am constantly belittled because i don't aspire to have a career where i take on responsibility. unless it's my company or is a non-profit or something, idgaf, and i'll put in the least amount of effort. am i supposed to be impressed that these people are so heavily invested in believing that AIG actually thinks they're "valuable members of the team" that they'll work themselves to death to feel special and 'accomplished'? i notice, anyways, that the pay raise is hardly ever proportional to the amount of responsibility and liability you're then forced to take on. you just get paid more to be a scapegoat for someone else's incompetence. color me thrilled! at least my ability to fuck up as a sandwich artist is minimal and i can't be blamed for mismanaging or ruining the lives of others. i also think a lot of people (esp in burgerland) are conned into the idea that they're more capable than they actually are. i'd rather recognize my limitations, and have others recognize theirs, than see the amount of total ineptitude in so many fields just bc it's not dignified for people to hold lower positions. it's way more admirable, anyways, to put your effort into volunteering, you know, actually trying to make the world a better place, or at the very least, donating in order to do so, than investing your entire fucking life into some bullshit gig where absolutely no one cares about you.

then legit that's my shit. i want the least amount of responsibility possible. i once read about a janitor who amassed $8 million and hid it from everyone. worked all his life as a janitor and no one knew. he just was frugal and knew how to invest. that's so much cooler than slaving yourself to death for an ever more difficult lifestyle that you don't need and can't actually afford.

it's sad, every job should pay an actual living wage, damnit

same, I'm in uni rn bc I want a shitty lab assistant role (science equilavent to office ladies basically) but I also honestly wouldn't mind if after graduating I get stuck in grocery stores. Honestly physical labour feels very rewarding, I like the immediate results and feeling that I have done something, intellectual stuff rarely ever feels that way. I also like the thought of going into carpentry to continue family traditions kek but that would literally pay nothing (where I live at least) and I want to be self sufficient. Maybe I'd feel differently if there was a field I was truly passionate about but I haven't found that yet.

no offense and not to get super ot but what's the hourly wage for that like where you are? idk where you are but here it's $14.70 an hour. that's insane for the amount of liability and ability to fuck up for a job like that, tbh. my mom makes $18 doing front desk work at a hormone therapy med office and it's not difficult at all to live off that here. i wouldn't want to touch biological materials or hazardous materials and be responsible for the processing or prep of anything for less than like, at least, $70k a year. too much depends on it imo, but if you're great at it and really like it, it's different i guess.

No. 377002

I can relate, though I aspire to a slightly higher level of wagecuck. A comfy, sit down office job with food and coffee accessible at all time and a bit more money is ideal. There is a tendency for office jobs to get busy and horrible sometimes but I will continue on my quest to find the job I can slack off on the most while still doing a decent job.

No amount of money can compensate for peace of mind and free time, I will never be ambitious enough to let myself get overly stressed and busy in a position of responsibility. Honestly this kinda applies to marriage and children for me too, I crave a relaxed, easy life above everything else.

No. 377005

it's round 20k ponds a year for entry level stuff, dunno how much it comes out per hour, round 10-20 depending on hours (the positions I checked out just now were mostly 20ish hours/week)? American costs always seem so inflated, rn I can live off the 10k a year I make from working groceries part-time quite alright with no additional financial aid (halving rent though), so it seems like a fair pay to me. I think the amount of responsibility depends on what lab specifically it is, like something dealing with disease/pathogens is obviously much higher risk versus like supervising 1st year undergrad bio labs you feel? Chemistry labs round here pay better (round 30k a year for the same entry level stuff) bc of the oil industry, but I'm into molecular bio, also not sure how smart it is to bet on a job in the oil industry when there are layoffs happening already.

No. 377118

So did I, but you do realise that just because something impacts you doesn’t mean you’re suddenly going to develop an incest fetish, right?

Since a lot of you are misunderstanding, by impact I meant that kids in that age group are often obsessive readers, they often devour the books they love and move onto the next book by that author because of how much they enjoy their work. Of course there are outliers, but look at what kids in that age group are like in book stores/libraries or better yet what their parents are like - when looking for a book it’s almost always something by the same authour or from their favourite series.

And that’s what I was saying sticks with people, they associate that childhood wonder and excitement with those books. A lot of the books you would’ve read in your older years you’ll have forgotten unless they really spoke to you, but the books from your childhood stick with you because children love things differently. Sure, the book itself may not have been the greatest, and they haven’t completely changed the course of your life, but the feelings stick with you.

That’s all I meant by impact, I don’t know why so many of you are having trouble understanding that impact doesn’t have to be life changing.

I probably generalized this post too much because mostly what I've seen has been anecdotal; boring ass girls I knew who popped out babies and now their whole personalities revolve around being a mom. Didn't have any ambitions of their own when I knew them and now all I see are baby photos and passive aggressive statuses about how their boyfriends don't actually parent.

I have no vendetta against young moms, just more the expectation that women have to become all encompassing servants once they have kids with no thoughts or ambitions of their own. Obviously being a mom is a huge commitment but I feel like people expect woman to be 100% about your children or else you're a bad parent. It's sad and frustrating seeing women fall into this trap and not realizing that they can have children as well as a sense of individuality.

Anon you replied to, and I feel this. My kids are all people every ask me about and my parenting is constantly under scrutiny (mainly whether or not I wait on the hand on foot), but a lot of it comes internally too. Constant feelings of guilt if I do anything for myself or feel sick of my kids.

Although I don’t at all see the need to post about my kids publicly all the time, and I see this more from older mums than the younger ones.

Again though, any ambition someone has tends to go out the window during their kids younger years because they take up so much of your time and attention and you feel half dead majority of the time

I hate commentary channels on YouTube. It's usually some smug, mediocre white guy sharing his unsolicited opinion on some dumb internet trend or social issue that doesn't matter at all.

And before anyone accuses me of race-baiting or whatever, I don't dislike them purely because they're white dudes. I know there are other types of YouTube commentators. There is an alternative subgenre of YouTube commentary that's more dominated by women and gay dudes. They usually don't show their face and talk more about celebrities and their "unpopular" opinions. I also find them annoying and low effort. These guys however the ones that gain the most praise and popularity, so they're the ones I'm singling out. And they annoy me so much more than the other ones precisely because of how blind they are to their own mediocrity.

They always talk about internet "celebrities" or rant about some ~wacky SJWs~ that are easy targets, and it's always just frankly boring. I'm not against ranting or criticizing in general or in comedy, but these guys aren't even clever enough to make it funny or interesting. They all just say basically the same thing about the same topics as each other.

There are only so many times you can watch someone act incredulous at some weirdo on the internet before it gets old. Everything about them annoys me - their smug faces, condescending voices, overused editing, the fact that they actually make their living from this… These guys are always like Reddit personified.

I hate that I'm actually agreeing with Brittany Venti about something, but her video about them summed up a lot of what I feel towards commentary channels. It's a trend that can't die soon enough.

No. 377453

i dont understand how these types of channels still exist because i cant imagine who watches them. i think the trend really took off after content cop got successful and while i'm not a fan of idubbbz anymore i think his videos were at least really well done. now it's just people picking the most obvious low-hanging fruit and pointing at how 'cringe' some person is without making any valid points. i dont think all commentary videos are bad but most of them are shit because the video creator doesnt have an intended point for any of their criticisms, usually they just want to make fun of someone for being cringy which is the most braindead thing that anyone can do.

I do what >>377471 does of just have those videos in the bg, completely focusing on them feels like a waste of time (maybe besides Pyro's gaming vids and older TWOTIs). It's also fucking annoying that when something happens, they all instantly release a vid on it like vultures flocking in and obviously cover the same exact things, like recently with 4 belle delphine vids released within one week (WillNE, Memulous, ImAllexx, Pyro).

all i can think is how fucking dare you decide to chance 50% of exposing a child to that. exposing a child to a dangerous chemical in the blood and a lifelong deformity just because you want to. why not adopt???

maybe i'm overreacting but i feel like it's so disgusting and selfish

I have a huge amount of sympathy for celebrities and I think they live awful, oppressive, extremely stressful lives. We all know that money and nice things don't guarantee happiness, so even though they're rich and privilged, I still feel bad for them. The people who are supposed to protect and care for them, dehumanize the shit out of them, and this isn't even getting started on child celebrities. I imagine that most of them have been sexually coerced and raped and abused in other ways. I mean, imagine how stressed out you'd be if millions of people were eagerly awaiting your mental breakdown and basically actively cheering it on. When I think about celebrities like Britney Spears, Courtney Stodden, Anna Nicole Smith, Justin Bieber etc, I just feel an extreme, deep sadness.

inb4 "but they CHOSE that lifestyle!!" okay? so did a surgeon, but I still feel bad for surgeons who work grueling 80 hour weeks and get traumarized when patients die on their operating table

No. 377833

completely with you on this. I think it's just bad for the mind to be exposed to millions and billions of people for a long time with your personality attached to a performance you have to keep up. Staying grounded and moving away from the limelight if necessary must be hard as fuck. Money supposedly making all the downsides better my ass. There is just a ton of pressure on celebs and how don't you lose yourself in that persona?Partners often love the idea of them or simply the money and fame. People latch on to them. Lots of families behind a celeb must be awful as fuck. And also, as a celeb you might just turn into a total asshole because people around you sometimes only care about your performance and blow your ego up.
Not saying this is true for all celebs but the challenges that come with that lifestyle are crazy.
I have a lot of respect for those who stay sane and grounded and keep some privacy and even make use of their fame for good causes. I also have a lot of sympathy for troubled celebs or even the assholes because that just comes natural under those circumstances. I can't say I'd be a stable or good person if I were famous.

No. 377838

Yeah esp in the case of child stars, it’s not like they can just get out of it either. They are not educated and lack real world experience, and with no support system it probably seems virtually impossible for them to even know where to start leading a normal life. Kind of like someone escaping a cult

I hope my sons grow up to be gay because gay guys are generally nicer than straight guys

No. 378078

Gay guys are certainly not nicer than straight guys, maybe this perception of yours is biased because they're not trying to get into your pants. The fact is that homosexuals are more proportionally child abusers and suffer from greater mental health problems and substance abuse problems. Homosexuals can be well groomed and put on a glib charm while in public easily, but underneath the surface in grotty bars and drug induced orgies, there's a different side to them.

If I was in her shoes, being humiliated, stunted, being so obviously resented by him the way she is, being the target of his autistic rage, dealing with his abuse and humiliation in the public eye, AND the financial stress, I'd have killed myself like 6 years ago. People mock her for being dirty and lazy, but I can't blame her. I'd be too depressed to just continue living if I was her. I'm surprised she is even able to keep it together enough for her kids.

Cats are the incarnation of evil. They are vicious, selfish, sadistic, needy arseholes which have somehow, as a species, convinced millions of educationally subnormal human beings to give them water, food, shelter and adoration in exchange for their deigning to grace the aforementioned idiots with their physical proximity every now and then.

If it were up to me, every domesticated cat worldwide would be rounded up and airlifted to an appropriately imposing and predator-heavy habitat such as the Serengeti where the little shits could spend the last few weeks of their lives learning about the harsh realities of the nature they thought they'd escaped for good, before being torn apart by hyenas or succumbing to some especially painful and disfiguring parasitic infestation.

In the absence of this wet dream's coming true, however, I'll have to content myself with rewatching the LiveLeak video of the deranged Indian man eating a cat alive, and reminiscing happily about the time a deeply troubled pupil in the care of the Special Educational Needs unit where I used to work killed the school cat with a lathe.

I don't know to which extent this counts as an "unpopular" opinion nor do I know if this has been posted before so bear with me, but I think drug glorification culture and this trend of parading drug use so casually is fucking retarded and irresponsible. doing drugs recreationally in general is something I find retarded and unappealing, i tried weed last year just to see what the fuss was all about and it was pretty meh. I don't judge my friends who do recreational drugs nor do I preach to them but i still think it's moronic and basic to act like doing drugs is such a fun and cool activity.

weedfags are always reeeing when you try to tell them that even if weed isn't as bad as say, cocaine, it's still a drug and it's still somewhat harmful for your system. people now think that smoking weed is a whole ass personality trait that makes them seem "chill", interesting or appealing, but in reality parading something like that to the public makes you the opposite, it makes you look stupid and vapid and very basic imho. if you like smoking it that's fine, you do you, but it's not an obscure or interesting habit that makes you appealing, you're not suddenly special and yoonique bc you smoke a blunt.

also people really are out here sperging about weed all day every day (a few lolcows come to mind) acting like it's not an addiction. because they do know addiction is bad and harmful but they won't admit it bc you lose clout if you say something bad about weed now i guess, don't want to look like an old grandpa for dating to have an original thought and realize that hey maybe this little drug habit of mine isn't as good for me as I was made to believe it was.

There's a lot of darkness in the LGBT community that goes unaddressed because most people are too much on the 'gay rights' bandwagon

There's a high proportion of homosexuals suffering from the toxic culture that exists in large portions of the gay community. The average homosexual man suffers from a form of Don Giovannism and it's not at all uncommon for gay men to rack up over 1000 sexual partners, most of these being one time affairs. Illicit and anonymous gay sex is extremely common and normal for homosexual men, and much of this is unsafe, unprotected sex. This is basically the sole cause of the community's excessively high STD rate. The homosexual nightlife community is overindulgent on drugs and needles just as it is on sex, and much of this is again, done unsafely. Sexual abuse is extremely common and predatory behavior goes unreported and unenforced because there's just not the mainstream knowledge of how common homosexual rapists are, the average person these days just thinks that all homosexuals are the cuddly happy guys as portrayed by the media.

Most people think that the stereotype of gay men being sex crazed perverts is just a reactionary, christian talking point. And will dismiss it as such. And while it's not fair to say that ALL HOMOSEXUALS have the problems I outlined above, there is this dark underbelly to the homosexual community that people just refuse to address anymore.

And there's also a really sick subtype of homosexual, the type I think is most likely to sexually abuse children. He dresses in baggy clothes, usually shorts and oversized T-shirts. He has a childish sense of humor that resembles something of an adam sandler skit, putting on funny voices and just generally…Acting how I imagine he perceives 11 year old boys to be. He will almost never speak to women, is extremely misogynistic and has an extreme narcissism about him. I'm not sure if I'm reaching, but I've encountered this exact type of homosexual man several times in my life and one is close to the family. But they're one of the few types of people in life that weirds me out.

My biggest issue is that you’re not allowed to mention the huge amount of child sexual abuse rampant in the gay community, and how a lot of these boys then even become gay from a sort of trauma from it - plenty will have first been introduced to homosexuality via rape and/or molestation and grooming, and this issue will keep going on if no one is even allowed to talk about it. It’s an absurdly high rate considering how small of a fraction of the populace they are

I remember onetime reading a semi-marxist analysis of 'geek culture', and how capitalism pushes and indoctrinates people to be childish and frivolous like a child to increase consumer spending. It really makes sense to me, because all of the people into this crap seem to be living in perpetual childhood. The idea of a proper adult in mind and spirit buying a Funko toy is ludicrous.

the perpetrator of the orlando massacre was an isis terrorist, it caused massive outrage from the general public and there were several charities to help the victims' families meanwhile if the same thing happened anywhere else than a first world country, like somewhere in the middle east or africa no one, including the government and courts would give a fuck but okay. gay hate crimes in first world countries are way, waaaay lower than anywhere else. gays in the west are extremely privileged, protected by the law, can get married, can have a normal life, homophobes in the west get their careers ruined. they are not oppressed.

No. 379267

It's going to take some years for people to adjust to having these rights and being accepted as regular people. Eventually they'll feel comfortable and not persecuted so they'll relax on the IM QUEER shit and develop other interests. Also gay marriage itself was a very recent thing in the grand scheme of things (2015 federally, come the fuck on) unless you're a child that doesn't know what it was like a few decades ago where "gay" was an honest derogatory term and even before that when gay people were getting serious hate crimes committed against them. People pass their traumas down and it takes a few generations for these things to heal.

Besides there still are pockets of the country where being gay is very much a negative thing and most families are more "tolerant" than actually accepting. i.e. they won't try to murder a gay neighbor but will flip a tit if their kid is gay. Guess what, that kid is going to have issues and they will probably not feel safe even later in life bc these traumas absolutely stay with them.

YouTube keeps recommending me a video of Jay Leno almost being bitten by an alligator, that Steve Irwin brings on, and it's made me think animal experts/handlers should stop doing that. I love animals, and I loved Steve Irwin, but when you watch those segments on talk shows where they bring animals out you can tell the animals are stressed and scared. And the host freaks out and laughs, and the audience laughs, and the animal is trying to get away. And then they are rudely grabbed or shoved into a bag or box and dragged away back stage. How long do they have to stay in those bags, or boxes, or small cages back stage, being scared of all the lights and noise? It doesn't seem fair or safe, to the animals or the people, like the hosts who can be bitten or scratched by an animal they have no idea how to handle. Also extra unpopular opinion: Steve Irwin was too reckless with a lot of animals, and put his infant son in needless danger with the crocodile. Him being killed by an animal came as no surprise to me. Still miss him though. RIP Steve.

No. 379292

I don't think Steve Irwin was perfect as far as his practices went - it seemed like he was often blinded by his love for animals - but he did far more good than harm when it comes to educating the masses on the importance of conservation and generally giving a shit about animals that would otherwise be considered vermin or better off dead.

No. 379307

His show got really popular because he would pick up, grab, or even tackle and hold extremely dangerous wild animals like crocodiles. He clearly did care a lot about animals and when he captured them it was to help them, but obviously it garnered success whenever he did dangerous things on camera, so he was likely pushed to do so more often than he should have.

I've thrown my cat off the table and counter and scolded her a thousand times and she still climbs on them. Cats aren't stupid, they're capable of learning, but they're also a lot more likely to do whatever they fuck they want. Especially since it's in their nature to climb on things.

Moving the cat isn’t training it tho.

Use deterrents and rewards like training literally anything/anyone. Double sided tape on surfaces you want the cat off, give treats for doing things like touching your hand with her paw if you say high-five. Actual training.

No. 379339

Positive reinforcement and distracting it from things you don't want it to do seems to work better. Give it other, more appealing, things to do and you'll prob be able to keep it away from bad behavior.

I've heard really mixed opinions on whether punishment works well with cats, some people claim it makes them wary of you. I do know rewards work though.

No. 379342

throwing your cat off the counter isn't punishment, it's an obstacle lol. use water, loud noises like clapping or a can of pennies, double sided tape, tin foil. there are tons of things you can try. just picking your cat up and scolding them isn't enough. personally a combination of tinfoil and spritzing with water was enough for my cat to give up on countersurfing.

great point, and same goes for dog training. positive reinforcement or displacement of behaviour through introducing objects specifically for them works much better than negative reinforcement. then they're just going to be not doing the things you don't like out of fear. what kind of relationship is that where your pet is scared of you?

Educating young kids works the same way afaik. You want to give them distractions from poor behavior and also bullshit "choices" to trick them into thinking they have agency like "Yould you like x, y, or z for dinner?" but all 3 options are actually things you want then to eat. Tricks like that help keep your relationship positive and helps them build better character.

Many of them happen to possess unstable and entitled personalities which makes them insufferable to know and be friends with beyond a superficial level. Most anything they do is always for attention or as a means to make money, because their living entirely revolves around creating a specific image and narrative. The profession attracts a lot of self centered narcs willing to use people and throw others under the bus. There's a lot to be said about streamers who contact friends just to link to their Twitch and ask for donations for no product or service that isn't already being done for free by millions.

I know I am repeating myself but stop handling our things to men just cause they rub their dirty hands all over them. It's exactly what they want us to do.
Good thing I no longer run into psycho trannies online and don't give a fuck about their delusional opinions.

RE: Card games. I also do not enjoy them too much (though I like to collect some pretty Pokemon ones), but they give your brain a lot to think about and some people enjoy it. First you have to create the deck and then you have to keep thinking about the best strategy during the game, planning not only the next move but also for the next turn, consider the opponent's cards and avoid misplays.

I don't think capitalism in America or anywhere else is perfect but I have no idea where these people would rather live instead. The best countries to live in the world (Nordic countries, Denmark, Canada, etc) are all Capitalist while most non-Capitalist countries have been total shit. Even besides the USSR, people don't realize that countries like India tried socialism and failed.

The straw that broke the camel's back was someone saying "capitalism is bad" on a YA forum.

NTAYRT but this happens all the time with pits. They've been bred to activate attack mode when they're overstimulated. That's why pit attacks come as a surprise, they're sweet dogs until it happens. Other dog breeds might bite once to defend their territory or to defend themselves, but pits will often gravely maul people. I love dogs to death but I'm fucking terrified of pitbulls and think the whole breed should be illegal to keep outside without a muzzle. The people who defend them are often like people described here >>381544 , either white trash tough guys or people who want to feel powerful and persecuted for taking care of the poow widdle misunderstood pit babies.

American here. I feel like the rest of the world actually buys into the myth of the American dream in which just anyone willing to work hard enough here can become prosperous. This is the fault of our own propaganda so I'm not blaming anyone, and I won't get too detailed because no1curr, but the upper class is almost surely unreachable if you're coming from the working class with just a good work ethic and an average degree to your name. I say this as an ex-communist, now I like the thought of a socialist-leaning mixed economy.

As a former skinny girl who let herself go and has been fat for almost two years now, I think skinny girls get body shamed a great deal more than fat girls. Being skinny is far preferable, don't get me wrong, but I have noticed I get so much less shit for my body now. Making fun of skinny women is just more socially acceptable and people assume you have the self-esteem to handle it even when you don't. I also am complimented on my body more by both genders even though it objectively looks worse than it used to. People seem to feel more of a need to "build me up". Note that I don't fish for compliments by insulting myself, they just say this shit.

For reference, my BMI went from the slightest bit underweight to solidly overweight.

No. 381602

This. The American Dream borderlines on being a myth. The majority of Americans struggle financially and it's not because ~they're not working hard enough~. Our system pretends it's a meritocracy, but it's been proving countless times in countless ways that it only is on paper. Very few people actually make it to the upper class if they weren't already born in it. The reality is that higher class people will always have advantages over you. The rich can just buy their kid's way into the top colleges, taking spots from more qualified applicants. Most people can't afford college to begin with and if they go end up in debt for most of their lives. Businesses will always give higher jobs to people based on their connections rather than their merits. And don't even get me started on the health care system. Get sick or hurt and it can completely ruin your financial health for the rest of your life.

Also, don't forget that American politics are entirely set up to prioritize the needs of corporations over the people. This isn't even thinly veiled anymore. Our country literally let's people die and the planet get destroyed because a handful of companies are paying our politicians to let them so they can make more money with no fucks given to human suffering.

I'm absolutely against communism, but it doesn't have to be communist or capitalist. As America has proven, capitalism is pretty fucking horrible.

>I love dogs to death but I'm fucking terrified of pitbulls and think the whole breed should be illegal to keep outside without a muzzle.
Hard to take anyone's opinion on this topic seriously when they don't even know that pit bulls aren't a breed. "Pitbull" refers to any mix of a number of different breeds. That's part of why their temperaments and physical traits vary so wildly. It's also why the idea of breed restrictions on them is so ludicrous. You're basically saying "no mix involving any of a dozen different breeds should be allowed outside without a muzzle".

That being said, as someone whose worked in shelters and has had experience with many pitbulls, I do agree that people need to stop painting them all out to be flawless angel babies. Out of the dozens I've dealt with, only one was sketchy, but the owners very much ignored the red flags and made weak excuses for her problematic behavior to the point where I was amazed there had been no serious incident with her by the time she died. If you suggested she was potentially dangerous, they would act like you were an oppressive monster. Luckily they had the sense to take advice not to have her around children thank god.

Still, the number of attacks by pit bulls compared to how many there are is far too tiny to justify banning them or forcing special regulations on them. The problem isn't pit bulls themselves. It's the ridiculous lack of regulations concerning dogs. Anyone can just get a dog and treat it however the fuck they want if no one sees to report it (not like dogs can call animal protective services) or be a backyard breeder. While pitbulls have the highest attack count, most large breeds (especially ones for protection) have the potential to be extremely dangerous if in the wrong hands and do have a sizeable attack/fatality count themselves. This is because sadly anyone can get one and train and/or breed them improperly or abuse them.

My experience has been just like >>382056 in that if I just say I’m American, people will typically ask where in the states I’m from. Sometimes it’s also in kind of a “Well, no duh, but which state?” tone. My accent doesn’t match what they think someone from this state sounds like, so it’s always a kind of pleasant interaction. Idk, I’ll ask people from Germany or France especially where they’re from because I’ve been all over and it’s just kinda nice. I like small talk kek.

No. 382619

I noticed this too.
In the friend finder thread on cgl you were asked which country you're from - and of course every murican answers TX, MI, MS, MN,… I mean on the one hand most europeans know at least the most "famous" states, but nevertheless it's rude and entitled to just expect everybody to know and cater to you.
No matter whether they're conservative or liberal, they're a hivemind of "We're the most important!". Something I've also noticed is that Americans love to ask your opinion on Trump (and get mad if you're "too stupid" to have the same opinion as them) meanwhile many of them wouldn't even know who the leaders of most european states are. Why should we care so much about your country?
It's the same here on lc as well, people from all over the world will say which country they're from, Americans will name the state or even the city.

And the simple reason some europeans ask "which state?" is obviously because they're proud of their knowledge.

I'd say most anime fans (at least that I see on reddit and 4chan) know that there is a massive influx of shitty isekai and are fully aware it's just for self insertion. But yes, they do think utter trash like Re:Zero is above it. And yeah men really don't notice how much they are being directly pandered to and how uncomfortable it is for women, they're so used to it that it's just normal and to be expected.

I don't know how unpopular this opinion would be here because I think R:Z also got some women convinced it was good, but fucking hell I DESPISED it. Men were completely blinded to the mediocrity because they loved Rem completely discarding her personality to devote her entire self to some tracksuit wearing loser. She was almost cool at first and then got progressively less and less cool the more she loved him, because apparently the best thing a woman can be is an empty shell aside from her feelings for someone. But also I was mad because the series itself was just bad. Cheesy, generic villains, a boring fucking harem with an even more boring MC, unimaginative world building, uncreative fights, etc. I can barely remember shit about it except that I hated it and I hate how blinded men are by cute girls.

"But it's a deconstruction!" is the rallying cry of every Re:Zero fanboy who thinks it's not shitty wish fulfillment just because the protagonist gets sad.

A person from NYC and a person from LA are further apart than countries at the polar opposite ends of Europe. So yeah, many people don't want to bother befriending people that are literally further from them than the span of the entire European continent.

Also, the different regions within America are VASTLY different culturally to the point where they basically are different nations. And geographically, as a previous anon showed, the country is bigger than your entire continent. Plenty of states are bugger than many European countries (a few larger than all of them). So yeah, this is the dumbest thing to get salty about.

"State" and "country" are arbitrary labels. Culturally, different areas of the US are radically different. The only they have in common is the federal government, currency, and language.

But most of Europe uses the same currency and plenty of different countries throughout the world speak the same language as others.

Also, the societal norms in HI and Texas actually are more different than France vs. England. TX is shamelessly racist, sexist, homophobic, and conservative Christian. This worldview is not socially acceptable in HI. France and England have way closer political values than these two states do. To deny that TX and HI are completely different places with completely different cultures and have nothing in common besides speaking English and using USD, then you're just as culturally ignorant as the Americans you bitch about.

Since we're countrysperging, here's my unpopular opinion: American food isn't good. Yes, all of it.

I was so excited when I went to the U.S, I love trying new dishes when I travel. I was visiting New York then spent a week in Chicago with some relatives. Another time I went to L.A with a friend. I wanted to try the Chicago pizzas and American burgers and lots of other stuff. It was all shit.

For starters, American portions are insane. No wonder Americans are so fat, holy shit. I couldn't even finish half of what was given to me. And the amount of butter they put on everything was crazy, it's like they thought they'd die if they didn't soak everything in a ton of butter and then dump more butter on top before serving it. What the fuck? Everything was so greasy, and it all had this weird cardboard taste. Don't even get me started on their chocolate. Why does it taste like that? Whose decision was it that all American chocolate should taste like paper?

The Chicago pizza was the biggest disappointment. I was so excited to try a famous Chicago deep dish and then they brought out this thing that looked like the biggest pie I'd ever seen and told me it was the pizza. What the fuck?

And yes, I know America is a melting pot and blah blah blah, but I've never met a Brit who says "I'm 74% Celtic and 1% Anglo-Saxon" or a French person who says "I'm 10% Basque, 1% Roma, and I have some Berber ancesty on my mother's side."

Not wanting to waste my time writing you a thesis when this information is already all out there doesn't translate to you being right. It translates to you not knowing how to use Google.

There is a Wikipedia article for "culture of" every US state. If you Google "culture of -insert state or major city here-" you'll find tons of material.

Also, Utah and Idaho aren't as well known for their art and culture as a lot of other areas in the US. Which I'm pretty sure you know (or at least I certainly hope you do otherwise you're just proving your ignorance further) and were just using as examples in a weak attempt to poke fun at the idea of American areas having a rich and diverse culture. If you're genuinely interested in learning about this stuff, I recommend starting with NYC, LA, the Bay Area, Boston, the Colorado Mountains, Hawaii, Florida, Louisiana and Vermont. At this point, I have given you plenty of research material and you have no excuse to pretend my refusal to completely spoonfeed you confirms American cities and states don't have their own culture. Now there's no point arguing about it anymore.

tbh I don't see the problem with buying from a breeder if they're reputable and ethical and the breed isn't some abomination unto god like a pug or a stupid designer dog. with purebreds you know exactly what kind of health and behavioral issues you're getting into, and puppies are a clean slate while you have no idea what sort of history a rescue dog might have. while obviously rescuing a shelter dog is ideal, it's not necessarily the best choice for an individual, and I think people should take that into consideration before screeching how you're a terrible person if you buy a purebred.

on the other hand, buying a purebred cat is fucking STUPID because 10/10 it's going to just be a household pet and you can get a shelter cat cheap as chips. there is no reason, ever, to buy a cat from a breeder unless all you care about is how it looks.

where you live is also a huge factor into whats available in shelters. people reee about how you need to "adopt not shop!!!" but ignore that all the dogs in shelters in most small cities are pitbulls and retrievers with health and attitude problems, and other huge dogs, so you're shit out of luck if you want a smaller dog.

No. 383122

I'm in two minds about this… on one hand, laziness is truly a god awful trait, especially in a parent. All parents should be obligated to take the best care possible of their kids, and there's no excuses for not giving a shit and just dumping them on others with no consideration. But I also think the nuclear family structure is unnatural and isolating, an ideal situation would be extended family living together and sharing the work. Parents are so stressed and exhausted when they have no support and it has potentially very severe consequences (depression, divorce, health problems etc). If grandparents are genuinely happy to help out I think it is worth letting them.

Well done dehumanising the majority of the human race. It’s not like wanting to reproduce is instinctual or anything

To both you anons chimping out, fertility rates are falling at a rapid pace and they continue to do so, at this rate once the baby boomers finally die we don’t have nearly enough children being born to replace them. And we have this phenomenon over and over again, it’s just never got to quite this severity and nobody before our grandparents managed to fuck shit up quite so badly

No, we have not had this phenomenon over and over again. There has never been such a high number of people on the planet, and each person deserves a life of dignity and comfort and modern conveniences, without the risk of spreading disease or further cutting at the support system we depend on, which is completely unachievable at anywhere near 7.6 billion people. We need far, far fewer people, not anything close to replacement rates. As I said, comparing birth rates to the baby boom is seriously warping the perception of birth rates, and that's where the claim of "collapsing fertility rates" comes from. 7.6 billion or anything close is way over carrying capacity if we intend to improve quality of life in the third and second world. Fertility rates are not as low as you think.

>A decline in fertility rates due to things like birth control but also the rising disgust with children is absolutely comparable to past diseases/wars/what have you in that they’re catalysts to population control, just not as severe.

It's nowhere near as close. This is a delusional comparison.

This. Most people I know choosing not to have kids want them, but either A) can't afford them and don't want to subject a child to growing up on poverty or B) don't want to subject them to climate change. Straight up not wanting children is in the minority. And even if if it wasn't, people shouldn't feel morally obligated to procreate if they don't want to.


No. 383253

Precisely, and if they really did care about their offspring, they wouldn't decide to have them or cheer for the continuation of mankind while subjecting them to a future that is anything but bright.

People will breed regardless but if you have any common sense, would you really want your kids to grow up in a world that is going to have few natural resources (in the hands of the rich no less), high unemployment rates due to automatization, health hazardous pollution and so on?

Also, only capitalists worry about dropping birth rates. More consumers, more cheap workforce, more people getting into debt.

I also think that the loud minority of people, mainly women, are sick of being told to look forward to motherhood. And I hated and still hate people telling me to find someone and have a family because it's something you just need to do.
I see way more people insisting that having kids and a family is the proper way to do it than people being against it.

No. 383263

They don't care at all about their children. If they did, they'd recognize how inherently unethical it is to have children considering that their children can't consent to a life where suffering is guaranteed but their happiness, safety, security, isn't, and at a time where their safety and happiness is especially put into question because of climate change and the implications of it - the scope of which hasn't even been fully measured and understood by scientists and the predicted catastrophic effects need to be routinely downplayed by scientists and the media or else they're accused of fear mongering. Scientists admit that existing climate models don't account for so many things and are ignorantly optimistic as a result. And not to mention that even without climate change, human activity has done nothing but cut at everything we rely on. Even without climate change, humans can't keep on living while cutting at everything they depend on and acting as if it isn't going to ultimately cause a seriously scary domino effect.

No. 383268

I agree, anon. I also feel like parents willfully ignore all the horrific things that can happen to their children in general. We live in a world full of predators and the rate of kids harmed by them is too high for me to feel okay bringing them into the world. Even if you're super careful, there's no guarantee it won't happen to your child. And once they're older, you can't watch them like a hawk anymore, so there's nothing you can do to lessen the chances other than give them some pepper spray and safety tips.

And predators aside, there's just a laundry list of awful shit that can go wrong and often does; car crash, illness, extreme bullying, being the target of bigotry, intense mental health issues, going through some horrifically traumatic event. The list goes on.

But people have rose tinted glasses when it comes to kids and think everything is a fairytale. They don't think about the endless possibilities they're signing them up for.

No. They don't have "too few children". They don't want to accept immigration as a repopulation strategy (looking at you, Japan), and even without it, they don't actually need more people. The growth rate is not that stagnant at all. They're not at the point where they're not going to be able to run operations with fewer people or have a fine enough economy, they just are at lower than the replacement level. It's not actually "too few", it's just that economists operate on the basis of neverending growth and anything that runs counter to that isn't the economic ideal. The global growth rate is still too high. The aim is to improve living conditions for all, not to prioritize the Japanese reproducing at high levels just because they're Japanese.

There's immigration and then there's immigration. Uncontrollable immigration from countries with a radically different culture is bound to cause tension and conflicts within the borders because it takes a few generations to assimilate newcomers. The reason ISIS got so many soldiers from wealthy first world countries is that 2nd generation immigrant kids felt out of place in the society and took their rebelling to drastic measures. People immigrating from neighboring countries with similar cultures often have little trouble gaining a visa but it isn't as popular because they often don't have the need to move out. The "let's get hundreds of thousands of people in" tactic is way too radical to ever work as a solution to repairing a warped age demographic pyramid. Treating overpopulated countries like barrels of workforce you can scoop people out of isn't a sustainable solution in any way.

There isn't a clear-cut solution to the underpopulation problem because it seems to be nature taking its course. It's expensive and takes more effort to produce children in a wealthy first world country because you don't need 12 kids working at your farm anymore. The third world countries are bound to take that course if their economy ever starts nearing first world countries.

You seriously can't be using something that was in the past to compare what's going on today. The circumstances are extremely different. If you are in your 20s too, then we're going to witness the consequences of the climate change on our skin.
You keep breeding, not like it matters. What's another digit on this planet? Not like you or most people will listen or care.
The damage is already done and we're just going to exhaust all the resources that are left and exterminate what little hasn't gone extinct.

No. 383361

I disagree that it's not worth talking about. Not everyone is so stubborn. The issue with something like climate catastrophe is that it's too abstract for them to actually conceptualize and visualize and apply to their daily lives. But the effects are so far reaching and inescapable and it's incredibly important that people are informed. It's worth trying and it's not like everyone is even necessarily SO emotionally invested in having kids. A lot of people are just expected to do so and it rocks their world to alter those expectations and consider something different for their future, but I think plenty of people are reachable. At the very least, I think preventing some suffering is worth the effort.

You're right, it has never been ethical and the very act of bringing a child into the world, even when things are comparatively good in the world, is fundamentally unethical, because as I said, you rob your child of consent and your child can still suffer from congenital disease, predators, homelessness, acquired disease, old age, etc. You're literally forcing them into unavoidable suffering with no guarantee for anything else. At the least, war can potentially be averted. At least with issues like war, the problem is other people, and easing tensions, or knocking out some enormous asshole Hitler is something we can reasonably accomplish. Besides, all of those times are literally notorious for having DRASTICALLY decreased birth rates, that's literally why we had the baby boom. Anyways, now we're facing an existential threat that is against mother nature itself and we have literally no solutions. Natural disaster is a way, way more threatening opponent than other people. Besides, just because having kids was never ethical doesn't mean we shouldn't acknowledge that and apply that consciousness to our lives now? And as another anon said, birth control wasn't even a thing until the mid to late sixties, so there really wasn't much of a choice. We're inundated with options, and really, it's weird that you're excusing people being ignorant about bringing children into the world when a good parent, by nature, would be someone that heavily weighs the effects of their having a child and the suffering the child will have to go through. A good parent, by definition, wouldn't have a child knowing it can't consent and knowing they can't guarantee a high quality of life for that child.

Per the thread theme, I don't think 'can't afford to have kids' is always accurate. Kids are expensive and an extra one might drive tens of millions more families deep or deeper into poverty than is admitted, but people can definitely afford them.

It's just they consciously know their kids will have shittier lives than they did, and opt out.

The birth control pill wasn't around until the 60s, but to pretend like prior to that women didn't take measures to protect themselves from pregnancy and motherhood is wrong. Since ancient societies, women used certain herbs to induce miscarriage, all other old wives tales of food and activities to stop a pregnancy. Condoms and the pull out method also were used as "birth control". The diaphragm was patented and popularized in the late 1800s, but similar devices were used before that.

Of course these methods weren't as effective and precise as hormonal birth control, but pregnancy wasn't an inevitability back then.

Kale is not a magic superfood, none of the dark, pungent greens are. Why do urban vegan/Whole Foods fags act like they just discovered black gold when they eat kale? If you have family from the South, are black, or from some countries in Asia and Eastern Europe, you’ve probably eaten some form of dark bitter greens at one point in your life. I just find health food fads interesting because it’s always like, some food which has been around for centuries and no one outside of the community would touch with a 10 foot pole because it isn’t ‘sexy’ enough to put on a plate.

Typically, I find little to no interest in anything with primarily unattractive and/or middle-aged men as leads. I've always been like this, and I'm not really sorry about it.

I love that show for something to throw on at the background. I am not into comedies at all, it's very difficult for me to laugh at anything, but i am entertained and invested for some reason At least the characters always get what they deserve, even if they don't learn their lesson. I just hate any episode that revolves around the gang being pissed because they are all bad enough sober. And also drunk in general are the fucking worst people ever.

I disagree, this probably counts as an unpopular opinion because a lot of people claim only the first 3 seasons are good or the middle section is, like you.

I think it peaked around 7-9 and has continued being funny (though it might be more that it has several absolute gold episodes per season now while the earlier seasons were more consistent with less gems). It's one series where flanderization actually works and the characters just get funnier as their shitty traits become more obvious and solidified. Watching 1-3 now is bizarre, they're way too nice (by their standards) and just don't have particularly distinct personalities. The Gang Dines Out or the Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award are probably my favourite episodes of theirs.

I think it should be completely acceptable for women to have friends that are 'orbiters' while in relationships, etc. We aren't indiscriminate, opportunistic slimebags in general, and I think it's only fair that if we give men the opportunity to be with us and we take the huge leap (because relationships are literally more dangerous for us on all levels), I think we should be able to have back ups, at the very least, for emotional support or help, or to keep our minds off of the garbage that eventually drops the sweet guy charade and lets his male entitlement loose, etc.

I think it's very different than letting men in relationships have female friends that are into them. Men have everything going into a relationship. We're the ones that risk it all and men should always know they're replaceable so as to prevent them from getting too cocky when they realize we love them.

I consider myself a feminist, but I feel like some women have used it as some sort of weird way to make themselves feel superior despite being so shitty. One example is this fat chick who was with this really hot guy that she treated like absolute shit. He finally dumped her after a few years of paying for everything while she mentally abused him and just sat on her ass getting fatter and fatter. Now she acts like she's the victim and goes on about how she has waaay higher standards now and makes it about feminism. Like bitch, you're a horrible feminist. Your idea of feminist empowerment is not having to do jack shit or take care of yourself while a man you have zero respect for pulls all the weight. I've seen similar behavior from a few other women I know too.

Stupid and needlessly bitchy assumptions on your part, honestly. Female friendship is great and a necessity but this is an entirely different animal. When you've come out of a shitty relationship and been broken down by some stupid asshole that spent the better part of your relationship hiding everything about himself in an effort to seem like a good person only to reveal that he's a literal scumbucket, it IS reassuring to have male friends to remind you that there are others out there and that you're appreciated by other guys that you also respect or like on some level. Not having that is why embarrassing, awkward, uncomfortable rebounds with randos happen.

And for real, you sound dumb.

I’m just waiting for a huge push for actual women to get onto the show now that they have let on trannies multiple times - because trans women are women, right? So if they don’t let on ‘cis’ women they’re essentially saying trans women are men.

But in all seriousness I don’t know why people take the show to heart, it’s literally gay men just dressing up as caricatures of women and screaming at each other.

Performative femininity is often part of women's lived experience. It doesn't define womanhood, and I never said it did, but these people wouldn't be doing it if it wasn't part of it. Nobody sees a drag queen in a dress and starts to associate dresses with drag queens, they see a man cosplaying as an exaggerated version of a woman. That's just how it is.
>whether the guys who do it are misogynists is a different thing, but the act itself has to do with shitty gender roles anyway.
My entire post was about misogyny, though, not gender roles. A lot of people in that scene aren't doing anything to smash gender roles, they're just showing off how simultaneously obsessed and bitter they are about those same gender roles, often with a not-so-subtle twinge of bitterness toward women and all things to do with femininity.
>i think cis women choosing to participate in that are fucking stupid though because not only is it easy to turn a woman into a caricature of a woman, but it's embarrassing that they want to participate in something like that.
I think it's embarrassing, too. The whole fucking thing is embarrassing, ugly and tacky.

>defending drag queens
Lmao. They will be okay. Men in costumes don't need women to protect them, I promise.
I was referring specifically to trans women's behavior in my post, especially in the vein of >>384815 on "letting on trannies [because trans women are women, right?]", not attacking drag queens. Some trans women are drag queens, like it or not. I think drag queens who aren't are just weird gay men, and I don't care about them as long as they don't attack actual women the same way trannies do. The way they use terms like "fish" and perform their imagined stereotypes of catty, unintelligent women is gross, though, and I can't relate to anyone who would find that shit cute.

No. 384892

Literally no one associates performative femininity with their womanhood, it's simply an annoyance we have to deal with. Also, you are entirely wrong about your assertion, people do associate certain things with drag, drag makeup is a thing that's not associated with women at all, infact women who do heavy IGthot makeup are associated with shitty drag because of how excessive it is. Either way, you seem to have entirely missed my point, and the other anon's point, because she wasn't trying to defend or protect drag queens. Your post also missed the point of what others were saying, in that drag doesn't let cis women in because they are women, but they let trannies in because they're not, so the trannies want to let cis women in because it validates them thinking they're women. Idiot.

It's actually really fucking annoying to call out a mechanism of socialization that ends up actually marginalizing women and ends up creating more victims of every axis of unresolved oppression in this world as being wholesale "dehumanizing!!!" and acting like it's misogyny to encourage women to reconsider pacifying men, as a class, by producing more children for them to exploit on every level imaginable.

I was addressing the SPECIFIC phenomena that surrounds women and encourages them that they're more susceptible than men to the urge to ACTUALLY PRODUCE A CHILD, because of some biological bullshit, dumbass. The 'urge to breed' is there, but somehow, men seem to escape the urge to ACTUALLY PROCREATE and are largely happy enough to trick their bodies by just getting off, and are actively scared of having children, typically. There's obviously a difference in socialization because when studied, there's nothing to suggest that women are especially prone, biologically, to wanting to have children the way we're told they are in comparison to men.

Fucking is fucking but it doesn't need to result in a pregnancy to fool you, come on. Otherwise, you'd know you're pregnant a fuckton sooner. Sex is just as gratifying and a fulfillment of our urges without resulting in a pregnancy. It's pretty misogynistic to buy into the bullshit that we have to get prengnant to feel fully sexually or fulfilled the way men are when they get off. We're fully capable of being tricked.

Breed, anon. Women (and men) want to fuck, not because it feels good but because it's for making babies.

Women are significantly more likely to become pregnant if they orgasm, and how is sexual pleasure not linked to reproduction? Just because your nipple or foot feels good when someone licks it doesn’t mean that it isn’t linked to reproduction, it doesn’t have to literally be the inside of your vagina that feels good for it to be tied together. Are you dense?

No. 385424

>she thinks that sex being pleasurable is because it makes the body think it's pregnant
that's not what i was saying. i was saying that getting off, or, at least, sexual stimulation is the precursor to pregnancy - or, at least, that's why it feels good, so we're more encouraged to have sex and reproduce. the whole 'feel good' thing encourages us to do it? i said birth control tricks the body into thinking it's pregnant. when i cum, i'm fine, or when i have sex, i'm fine – there's no insatiable need to follow my fucking up with an obsession over whether or not i'm pregnant or even the remote desire to be pregnant. the point i'm trying to make is that once the bodily 'requirements' are satisfied, you don't need to literally follow that shit up with being knocked up. that's why, again, they've found that the meme that "women are baby craaazy because they inherently know they have X amount of years of fertility" is a myth. and you can't uncouple the myths of the ticking biological clock and the meme that women have a very specific, very intense form of 'baby fever' because of it. it's not true.

>Women (and men) want to fuck, not because it feels good but because it's for making babies.
no, they're inextricably tied to each other. the 'feels good' is obviously what makes us want to do it more than the literal desire to breed. now, anyways, because we're able to reason shit out. we aren't alligators. obviously people have the desire to breed, innately, but the whole fucking reason why people fuck the way they do isn't to literally have a kid - it's because it feels good. that's why we've created a whole system to bypass the whole pregnancy thing?? because we want to get the pleasure of fucking without actually getting pregnant?

>Remember when you were a teenager and you were horny and curious, it wasn't because you innately learned sex felt good at that age,

no. it literally was that cumming felt good. again, the biological basis is there, but that pleasure, NOW, considering we're not rabbits or shrews, isn't the main motivation for us fucking. the basis is there, obviously. that's why we fuck, but it doesn't mean it needs to literally result in a pregnancy or else women aren't adequately satisfied. again, that's why most people use contraception. people deliberately try to bypass the negative consequences of the system that was created to encourage breeding. i'm not saying people don't have the 'urge to breed'. what i'm saying is that it isn't actually that strong or unavoidable (especially the way society says it is in women) given that it takes a backseat to pleasure when pleasure alone can be isolated.

From the way >>385562 describes her distaste for manly proportions, I'm guessing she enjoys the more androgynous appeal that being skinny gives to guys. If so, I get it, my attraction skews femme so I like the way the waistline of skinny guys curves in a more feminine way

no, i like normal height men, like, 5'9 and up, but waifish and petite, like, a tiny frame but not short. no, not like children, just fragile young men, especially when counpled with a meek personality. there's just something about a fragile man that is just so very attractive. the physical vulnerability and just an innate desire to protect him (despite the fact that i'm kind of incapable of doing so because i'm short and petite myself), i guess. and i like that it's kind of a physical equalizer. i'd love to be a tall, strong woman that was maybe just as tall or an inch shorter, and feel like i really was capable of protecting him if i needed to. i'm not really attracted to the physical proportions of shorter men though, and i do think it is a bit too childlike for my preference.

Having fat people in the media and fiction because there are fat people irl is all good, but I agree that there shouldn't be representation in a positive way, like when people say things like "we need more fat people in the media so that little girls and boys who are fat can feel better about themselves uwuuwuwu"

No. 385682

I'll probably get called a fatty-chan for this but I think fat representation in the media is fine, not only because fat people exist and always will (until global warming puts us in a food crisis kek) but because fat people shouldn't be made to feel subhuman. We already know that shaming fat people doesn't actually help them, they have to want to take the steps to be healthy and help themselves. If anything, the stress of being ostracized and hated just makes the problem worse, because very fat people usually have deep-seated psychological issues that they cope with by overeating.

That said I don't think obesity should be glorified in any way. People like Tess Holliday are delusional and disgusting, as is the entire HAES movement. But I don't think having a size 16 person on screen is going to hurt anyone.

No. 385693

Same for me. I hated my own "fat" body and projected these sick ideals on everybody else around me as well. Now I feel ashamed of the way I thought and acted back then, because I realized that those people I solely hated for the way they look, can actually be really, really nice.
It's sad that there are people like those farmers out there, who still have this mindset as adults.
Nobody is saying that haes should be put on tv, holding speeches about how great being obese is, but there have been multiple posters who bragged about being cunts to overweight people irl.

>Some other people struggle to see others kill themselves slowly.
I hate this excuse. You know exactly that this is not the reason in 99% of the cases. Some assholes just enjoy being jerks to anybody who doesn't fit their idea of being attractive - whether it's being too fat or something else.
I remember there even being an anon who said that just seeing fat people in public hurts and repulses her and that therefore they shouldn't be allowed to go out until they've lost weight.
This always reminds me of pic related. Yes, that man is dangerously obese, but you're certainly not healthy in the upstairs department either. It seems as if some retards think that being thin gives them a free card to treat others as lesser.

No. 385710

I'm just curious as to how you know the distinction between an obese person who lost 40 pounds this year and an obese person who didn't lose anything? One obese person is objectively not neglecting themselves while the other is, yet you as an outsider wouldn't know the difference. You'd think both are doing nothing and neglecting themselves when that might not be the case.
Just seems like an unfair assumption to make about most fat strangers, considering you don't know what they've done to try to help themselves. Ditching obesity doesn't happen in a few month's time, it can take years.

I'm BMI 24 and carry my weight in my chest and arms (and mostly wear baggy clothes) so I know that many farmers would consider me fat (even though my weight is healthy). I also lost big ammount of weight over the years, I used to be obese two years ago and yet people who just see me on the street don't know that.

Also the "health" argument is bullshit. A couple years ago, I was deep into cocain and amphetamine usage which resulted in me dropping weight very quickly and all of my friends kept congratulating me even though they knew it was a result of drug addiction. I'm no healthy by any means but afaik my epilepsy has nothing to do with my weight. No one ever side-eyes me for smoking however they do for eating chocolate.

I can see where you're coming from and respect the point you've made, albeit rudely. In my case - I don't think it's an excuse. I personally have never berated anyone for their weight, regardless of what it is. This is the only place I have voiced my opinion on it. I genuinely do feel concern when I see legitimately obese people binge eating in public. I know there must be so much going on under the surface, it makes me really sad, but I know ultimately it's up to them to fix it. I guess some people don't want to. It's just hard to come to terms with the fact that some people don't value their bodies sometimes. I don't see how that makes me unwell upstairs?

I don't think marriage is a sacred thing that children should stay within or whatever. I'm only interested in marriage as a legal institution and I would hope parents would seek to maximize a child's legal rights. It's not even that they're hippie enough to "not believe" in marriage, they're just not seeing that sort of commitment as a possibility or some shit like that.

I think you fail to understand that most people don't truly understand the implications and costs (emotionally, physically, financially) of parenthood until they are actually in it. People are heavily encouraged by friends, family, society, to have kids. Plenty of guys who seem "happy" about having kids later regret them and resent their wives or the mothers of their children, sorry to say. You can deny that this is reality, but if you look around, people are not happy.
