It's honestly a bit pathetic how adult children can't handle any criticism towards their precious video games.
I understand it's an extreme to say that they cause serial killers, but there have been studies that found causality between video games and aggression.

People who get upset that an actor doesn’t have the same eye color as the character they’re playing (infamous example: Daniel Radcliffe in the Harry Potter films) sound childish and dumb. They always argue that studios should "just give them contacts/cgi the eyes!“ but that seems so stupid? Colored contacts tend to look very fake/unsettling and can effect a person’s acting. Not to mention contacts irritate eyes and are very noticeable on screen (i.e. you can totally see the ring around Pennywise’s eyes in a clip from IT 2). And the cgi method is dumb because not only does it take a lot of time and money, but chances are it’ll still look fake/awful. Not saying it isn’t possible but it’s totally understandable why a filmmaker might dismiss the eye detail, especially when it’s not even important to the plot. I just hate how any time a new adaption comes out there’s always someone who’s like "uwu the actress doesn’t have blue eyes so it’s trash”. Grow up, it doesn’t matter. (sorry for sperg)

I think many people agree that gamers are now a prime target for radicalization into hate groups. Online gaming and things like Twitch still have major issues with misogyny and racism and even homophobia and nobody takes their concerns seriously. Also interesting to note that the US Army has also been targeting gamers for recruitment by setting up esports events and such things.

No. 444470

Thats exactly why Radcliffe didnt wear contacts, actually. I read once that they irritated his eyes way too much to function so they just let it go. Idk if it makes you feel better lol.

I agree though, cgi and/or contact lens cost money, time, mistakes. It really annoys me when cosplayers are bitched about for not matching a characters eye color, like…there are very legitimate reasons for them not to. Especially when lenses are 30-40 dollars a pair and expire in like a year or two.

Here's today's bitter pill to swallow:
People who go after "pedo artists" i.e. those who draw ship art of 16 year old fictional characters and chimp out over everything being loli or shota if the character is "child-coded" (i.e. have big eyes or petite build) are just
1.) creating a false sense of security out of fear because it brings them peace of mind to "be able" to point out predators and avoid them even though actual predators are manipulative enough to agree with everything you say and take advantage of your vulnerable side without you even noticing it.
2.) the predators themselves trying to cover their tracks.
3.) virtue signalers who don't give a shit about muh kids but are using pedo claims as a crutch trying to chase out people they don't like/have personal issues with instead of actually teaching the youth how to avoid being taken advantage of or calling out confirmed, dangerous IRL pedoforks because they're too chicken shit to take action.

I've noticed your average person who doesn't like at all or is very uncomfortable with this sort of art, anime or manga will just not consume any of it and will avoid it while not talking about it because they have other things to do and just don't think about it. Or they straight up report this sort of content to mods on social media or other websites,
which is the best thing to do imo. Whenever I see fucked up content on twitter I just silently report it, I deleted tumblr because there was too much of that shit there and reporting was useless.

The people who sperg about "muh underage fictional cartoon/anime/vidya characters" almost always nitpick and are way worse with irl teenagers or women in general or post completely degenerate contents themselves (furry shit or straight up bestiality mostly, sometimes guro, many are deranged transbians, etc.) and they try to cover that up by acting like they're paragons of purity.

I can agree on some of that, but I think people who do it for loli/shota shit are genuine about it. I've gotten to the point where I've just accepted that a lot of weebs are hypocrites.
Its happened too many times where I see people do call outs like this only to reveal that they're some kind of degenerate themselves. It's like fakebois going on about how evil fujoshis are for "fetishizing" gay men but are literally fujoshis themselves doing the exact same thing.It makes it hard to take any of them seriously. I've known people who pull this purity act too but are still are out there liking very clearly sexualized figs of literal kid animu girls or posting questionable fanart "as a joke". One of them even loves and follows that one fucker Oneyplays even though he openly likes, defends, and hangs out with Shad. Like, what.
Also this >>444733

My unpopular opinion (in the weeb community anyway) is that if anime wasn't a thing we'd have a lot less genderspecials/transpeople. Also women identifying as "nonbinary" is damaging to women in general, but I can understand why they do it.

I used to be with the Momokun threads from thread #1 and I hated her for being such a piece of narcissistic shit so much but the anons in her thread have become more cowish than Momo at this point, especially when proven by their screenshots that reveal them to be bitter clout chasing costhots or people like pic related. She doesn't do anything that milky anymore and just posts shitty photosets, that's boring and stale. I've actually grown sort of fond of her because she's one of the few thots that at least likes anime and games on a surface level at least. We have so many greedy costhots who outright say they don't give a shit about the properties they're profiting off of that I'm actually grateful for Momo's shitty misunderstood character analyses.

I think the main way anime causes troons was through traps. Traps gave troons an unrealistic idea on how transition works.
It's unrealistic because many traps are designed with features that only appear in females. I heard an interesting theory the only reason traps pass as female is because of anime cliches. On average an adult women in an anime will have bigger eyes than an adult man. So if you watch enough anime 'big eyes' is subconsciously a female cliche. Traps also have big eyes, but they are male. It wouldn't be wrong of you after seeing big eyes to assume 'female' because of the cliche.
Traps are impossible transition goals because they are specificity female coded in design. Traps are given all the traits of women, but a penis is tacked on. Such a transition is impossible for troons because they are not made female coded like traps, they are made male coded.

It does hurt for most women. It's something you have to go very slow with. What gets me is that so many women are willing or coercing into doing something with the potential to be unpleasurable, painful, and dangerous (most men want to jackhammer your ass instead of going at a slow or reasonable pace) but what do most men do in return for women?

Yeah imo, if the women wants to do it it's fine, because at least she's not being coerced or talked into it. Most men can't even make normal sex bearable, you can't trust most of them to be cautious with anal. All guys who want to try it should have it done to them first, so then they realize it's not just insert and jackhammer.

Idk if you nerds will yell at me for this, and obviously hate-fuelled political rhetoric is the motivator for recent shootings, but I think video games can and do have a HUGE effect on teenage boys (and people in general) and I think they're motivators for violence and shootings in particular. People are always mocking the influence of video games being like some, "conservative Christian schoolmarm" silliness. Men and boys growing up with their minds steeped in weapons glorifying violence or just violence in general has to have a major effect on them, and I think they're ticking time bombs as a result. There's no reason why violent video games should be made. There's no justification to create and release anything violent (provided it isn't educational) to the public. The liability way outweighs the benefits/enjoyment.

I don't remember which, but there was a documentary I watched where they interviewed these (dumb) young men in the army and they were talking about the shock of the reality of war compared to the video games they played. The bloated bodies lying on the streets, the smell of death, and how the reality is nothing like they thought it would be. The image of war and of the army they'd had in their minds was based around CoD or Battlefield or whatever fps games. They literally said something to the effect of that the game was fun, they were good at it, and it inspired them.

I don't really care what the stupid 40 person surveys say about how video games don't inspire violence in men. People are really, really dumb and can't be trusted with violent media. I think films should be way less violent as well. There's no need for violence in media at all unless it's educational.

No. 445730

video games can definitely have an effect but really, what doesn't? the issue isn't videogames on their own but the parents who don't pay attention to these red flags that their children show. if a kid is unable to separate reality and their videogames, the parent should step in and do something about it.

No. 445739

I agree, that's why I said there's no justification for any violent media (save for educational shit). People "liking it" isn't enough to justify it. And sure, but most parents have no idea who their children are or who they're on the path to become. Plenty of parents are shepherding them down the road of violence and aggression already. Obviously leaving everything up to the parents isn't good enough, and unless they're literal bubble children or stuck in an iron lung, they're still going to be exposed to violent media through other kids. And even if people seem to be able to separate reality from media, it doesn't mean it doesn't still impact them. I think it does. Just normalizing it at all, even if they still can recognize it's wrong, not appropriate, etc, is bad enough. It removes people from the horrors of reality by desensitizing them to it, depicting only part of it, putting it in a light that's almost "fun" because they get to participate in that destruction without ever having to think about the effects of it – just on to the next level, etc. There are films that explore why violence is horrifying, the effects of it, etc, and those can be okay, but most films and shows use violence as a gimmicky sideshow.

No. 445744

This is what Hideo Kojima's entire point was with the Metal Gear Solid game series: anti-nukes and anti-"video games making war look cool." There's one big monologue in MGS4 basically shaming the player for enjoying it and treating war like a game. Good shit, unfortunately the series is way too intensive and strategic for most little men who play Halo or CoD.

I'm a game developer and I fully agree with you. Games first of all cultivate a culture by virtue of their consumer demographic and the amount of dumb violence and poor writing for character motivations make it even worse. Media, even though people want to pretend it's not, is propaganda. It always has been, always will be. Media carries a message, even if your game is dumb shit like Duke Nukem, that is conveying a fucking message. I don't love video games enough to pretend they don't contribute to violence. Fellow developers need to understand the media we create serves as a cultural influencer and does work as a pseudo role model.

Combine a shitty demographic with media that is heartless and you have a perfect storm of psychopathy.

No. 445926

Yeah, honestly for people with naturally decent skin (less than mild acne and little dry skin) it's super unnecessary. Even for someone like me with nightmare skin I only use 4 or 5 products max lmao. I think for some it's just something looks wise to focus on that seems healthier than makeup.

Mate China is constantly innovating and finding new sustainable solutions to old problems. Just last week they exported a shitton of electric buses to Chile and are using them themselves, they're building enormous solar farms and working to cut down on their carbon footprint, meanwhile the US is completely monopolised by oil companies like Exxon who knew about climate change since the 80s and did fuck all about it because as long as they could profit from their actions on time, they didn't care. They dug up streetcar rails in the 20s and made you completely dependent on cars and petrol, and your president is a stooge of the same ilk. Just because you have Whole Foods and your local vegan hippies recycle doesn't mean that you're any less to blame for it than the Chinese. If anything, it's the other way around. India is already seeing great impact from climate change, plastic and chemical pollution but most of its population is busy being poor and working in sweatshops your nation's companies outsource to in order to make ends meet.
The tragedy is, both of these sad ass governments are trying to do something about it unlike the US which even ships its rubbish overseas.
Goddamn, every single time someone whines about climate change and points fingers at China and India I can smell it's a yank from here.

I'd be happy if there was some sort of law on drawing fetish fan-art. We've been letting freaks like Nemu run unchecked for too long.
It'd be good if, hypothetically, the artist had to personally contact the creator of the original work (or their "team" if they're very famous or busy), with their real name and photo attached, and ask for explicit permission to make whatever degenerate shit they want to create. They should have to give a detailed account of the fan art so they can't mislead the creators, either.
I've been assaulted with too much putrid shit when trying to look up innocent characters, even with safe search and other filters on. Cancelling the practice of kink-shaming and sexual inhibition has only caused problems to be honest.
Seriously, fuck your freedom of expression and anonymity. Some people have been abusing that shit and need to be reined in. Maybe if they're administered just a little bit of awkwardness and embarrassment, they'll chill the fuck out.

also most camgirls have no humanity to them, they'll fetishize abuse, rape, bestiality, underage girls, and incest as long as it makes scrots want to give them money. they don't see any problem with it because they've found a way to monetize their need for male approval, even if it comes at the expense of other women

I doubt there's an example. Why did you go with this dumb hyperbole when you were onto something with the stretch mark nitpicking? You could have drawn a comparison about how anons are insecure about their looks, and yet they go to the Moo thread to pick on her cellulite and puffy eyes, I mean you brought up stetchmarked titties.

People who bitch about immigrants speaking their own language need to sit down and mind their own damn business. I'm particularly talking about the U.S., Canada, and the UK here. My baby-boomer mom was whining the other day about some government documents being in English and Spanish, as if that's some sort of infringement on her rights. The fuck?

English is the third most difficult language to learn in the world, behind only Mandarin Chinese and Japanese. It takes years to become fluent in a language, and a lot of immigrants are coming from countries where they didn't have access to the necessary resources for studying English. Furthermore, language changes. I doubt the anglo-saxons were pleased when the Normans came in and mixed a bunch of French into Old English, but that's just life. Or hell, white Americans kicked indigenous tribes off their land, but their descendants now have the gall to bitch when people come here peacefully and all they're doing is speaking Spanish?

Mexico is one of our biggest trade partners and our next-door neighbor, and many parts of the U.S. used to be part of Mexico. Why the fuck isn't Spanish required in our schools? If Japanese schools require English, American schools should require Spanish. Also, remember how I said English is one of the hardest languages to learn? Well Spanish is one of the easiest because of how phonetic it is and how consistent its rules are. Is it that unreasonable to expect people to learn a language that's easy and is literally a part of U.S. history? Half the shit in my state is named after Spanish words.

Older people coming to western countries aren't in the same position of feeling superior and entitled. They don't get any special treatment for their race, quite the opposite, but are likely held back by their age (the older someone gets, the harder languages are to learn), poverty, lack of education, etc. Inability to communicate can be tough and isolating but at that age it can just be too hard for them.

I was thinking about the same thing a few days ago. I'm not American, I'm French but I'm not white. When I shit talk the USA for cases of racism or police brutality in the news some of my friends will do the same but if I complain about similar cases in my own country when the people targeted are often part of my ethnic group or black, people freeze and say shit like "if you're not happy about it you can just leave" or "i-it's worse in the USA I swear, you really shouldn't complain" and some only started changing their minds with the gilets jaunes because now white people are getting severely injured too and POCs are mostly avoiding protests to avoid disproportionate police brutality. Many are in denial of their own countries wrong-doing, others aren't even aware because we everywhere we go we mostly see news and memes about the US and maybe Canada, and we also see Americans shit talking the USA too.

i totally disagree about the last bit. older foreigners have the same kind of access to english as their children when coming here and they choose not to learn because most of them tend to be more racist/entitled than their kids. young white people tend to be better in foreign countries too (other than weebs of course) and older white people are the "expat" retards who build up shitty expat neighborhoods and still act like it's America or Britain.

women should not be able to do/partake in something gross/annoying/shitty (porn/fetishes/behavior etc) simply because men also do it. and it's not an attack on women specifically when other women speak out against it, either. the goal is always going to be getting rid of all of it but it's easier to start where you can actually have some effect. i would rather work towards a world where everyone is equally barred from things rather than the opposite.

i agree, i think the concept of freedom and liberty has been corrupted and co opted to enable an validate lot of perverted, toxic behaviors and a very obnoxious self serving onanist attitudes.

Younger people find it easier to fall for that, their political affiliations cling to being pandered to with validation for their particular brand of vice, i feel like so much of tumblr is "please enable my very unhealthy habits , compulsions and worldview" and i get it to some extent, i believe in individual freedoms that should be respected but freedom doesn't override other concepts like self restraint, moderation, common sense, mental health, etc and standards of society as a whole should not be thrown out the window just because the some bipolar poly furry diaper fetish bdsm enthusiast feels oppressed when people tell him maybe he or she should turn it down a notch and maybe go see a fucking shrink.

Not really? I know full well I live in a shithole but a lot of you don't even seem to realise when you're being condescending and nasty, and people are allowed to react to that. Also not everyone has to like your country in the first place, nobody likes mine and I'm still alive and healthy. You don't see many Israelis whining when people say mean things about their government.

Americans bombed my country in the 90s and still treat us, and many others like us, like we're club-wielding savages that need to be "taught democracy" just because we're ex-commies even though we weren't even USSR and life here was similar to the West. For the most part you can't even convince them that this is the case because they will just screech "you've just been brainwashed by propaganda" as if the same doesn't apply to them.
I don't even hate people in the US because most of them still treat us nicer than, say, Germans or Swedes, but I am allowed to fight back when someone is being a racist piece of shit online or offline. If you don't want people insulting you, don't be a dumbass. Simple as.

Lmao they can keep saying that and see where it gets them.

Certain people used to say this exact phrase to me when I complained in high school. Then more and more college students started leaving because the country was incredibly corrupt and public services are shit, and after graduating many honest people can't find work because you needed to belong to a certain political party to get a job, and their diplomas were worthless abroad. I left too, because I also wasn't happy about it.

Now my country's population is mostly old, the youth that stayed either couldn't afford to leave or didn't want to because they just wanted to do drugs, fuck and have a baby at some point, all the good doctors have left and hospitals are filled with undereducated, underpaid charlatans, and the government keeps stealing money from taxpayers and public projects and telling them that all is okay and we're doing great because nobody is left to oppose them anymore. Now they're crying and calling us selfish because too many people are leaving to escape the shitshow that is the current government so soon there'll be nobody left to bully into being their paypig anymore.

Americans are not one person, like LC isn't a hivemind. Some people react poorly to criticism, some people don't even understand the big picture of history so they can't grasp the US' role in global politics beyond like "we saved the world in WW2". I don't think many people would react positively if you wanted to lump their entire country into one specific person you wanna imagine them as and then shit on that.

However I do agree people need to chill the fuck out and learn to take criticism. Especially if your culture is being exported to the entire world and you're trying to play world leader. There's a lot that comes with it, it's not just economic power. Most Americans are too sheltered and indoctrinated by the state koolaid to understand why criticism is a good thing. It's no different than other militaristic states, they worship the concept of the country too much. The US is an extremely idealistic country and those ideals tend to cut really close to the heart of one's identity.

Anyway, shitting on any given country as part of discourse is extremely fruitless imo bc you're not changing someone's mind by telling them their country sucks. Their country is their life experience. It's a part of them.

No. 447954

While the Finns have historically not heavily engaged with overseas colonialism with as much enthusiasm as, say, the French or Dutch or British did, their history is still not sparkling and hardly squeaky clean of ethnic or sociopolitical difficulties and persecution: successive Finnish governments have adopted a number of policies that curtailed the rights and freedoms (especially in relation to ancestral lands and land rights) of the Sámi (Lapps), and there's been very little political representation of them as a group until the last 2 decades, sometimes to the point of it being used as an example of "environmental racism". I'm not saying that this is worse than what France did to Rwanda by any stretch, but that it proves that every nation state ever conceived on this earth has its own checkered history when it comes to ethnicity/nationality and colonialist mindsets. In-group out-group behavior always exists.

I will say right now, however, that the Finnish attitude towards getting drunk on your own and not having to expend any effort on idle small talk is admittedly very appealing.

Nations that went out and claimed new land for themselves have nothing to be sorry for. That was just what happened back then. They didn't have to share their technology, or build schools and hospitals. They could have just wiped out the natives and taken the land for themselves.

Meanwhile, America boasts about itself daily and gets involved in everyone else's shit.

Not sure if this is just the failure of the American education system (like others have stated), or the result of purposely embedding oneself in an environment that actively encourages ignorance, stupidity and chauvinism with a veneer of smugness used to cloak heavy personal inadequacies. Probably both. I just don't know why such people try to get into politics and history when they're clearly too incompetent to learn. Is repeating falsehoods just a way for dumb people to LARP that they're intelligent? I know they can shield themselves from actual facts by shouting buzzwords like "triggered" or "cuck" and repeating themselves if anyone even bothers to engage with them, but at some point, they must cringe a bit at their behavior, right?

That's definitely exactly what they think. Never mind that a simple Google search on African kingdoms and empires before colonialism (and the same goes for pretty much all other places that have been colonized) may have cured their stupidity. No, they'd rather repeat the same retarded platitudes.
That's what I don't understand about these people. There's really no excuse to be this dumb, and yet, here they are. They're proud of it, too.

Your double standards are as clear as day. You like empires and even defend ethno nationalism of but you get to pick and choose which people's are valid and which ones are meanie meanies.

No. 448200

It was not a battle between empires because it was a more developed economy undercutting and destroying a less developed economy.

It is like justifying the Opium War, turning hundreds of millions of people into dissolute drug addicts, and the looting and ransacking that occurred. All okay because it was a mean empire vs a mean empire, or okay because the British had a higher standard of living than the Chinese peasants. Even if the effect and intention were only to destroy the society so it could be permanently subjugated.

Imperialism destroys the social structures and supplants it with one purely favourable to the needs of the capitalist empires. It stole that wealth to fill museums and to melt down into raw materials for trade. It destroyed the foundation on which higher social development is achieved. Imperialism is STILL doing this because it is profitable and it's easy for the French to export stuff to them if they haven't got any industry, markets or currencies of their own.

Read about how many progressive, socialist African leaders like Sankara who just wanted to develop separate currencies and basic industries have been assassinated, for a start.

>the sami meme created by self-hating woke Finns to work some forced angle that we were actually evil colonizers
You do realize that the people committing the racial eugenics towards the sami were Swedish overlords and it barely happened in Finland to begin with? And that sami have been given multiple rights at their native lands but they just fight against each other because western samis from Norway (northern samis, the ones bitching in the media and which you call Lapps) came to Finland in the late 1800s, drove the native Finnish samis (inaris) away from their lands and started demanding rights over them? And that the native Finnish samis are like 300 in numbers so maybe that's why there isn't much representation? Finland has been independent for only 100 years and even after separating from Russia the country was still under a major Russian/Swedish rule for decades, but a lot of shit they've done has been pinned on Finns. I mean I'm all for preserving the inaribros but the Norwegian samis can fuck off with their whining lmao

You asked what Africa and America were like before colonialism, and now that you know your faulty "savages who were made civilized" narrative isn't going to work here since we're not mouth-breathers, you're deferring to "But they did bad stuff to each other too, guys!! Why aren't you mad at THEM?? This is ethnonationalism!! This is imperialism!! Same thing!!" whining.
Of course bad shit happened, but who do you know that is still suffering today chiefly only as a direct result of those events, not the past and continued poison of colonialism and imperialism? You probably can't even name or identify 6 distinct groups from either continent off the top off your head, let alone describe historical events between them and the weight of their aftereffects for comparison.
For just one example, do you really expect to convince everyone that Native American people would've been driven to near-nonexistence and made to live in reservations the same way they are now if Columbus and co hadn't decided to fuck them over and bring disease?
The biggest gag of all is that you're still demanding we care about your "wave of third world immigrants" on top of all this (which would actually be contradicting your own claims). Truly pathetic.

shaving or wanting women to shave isn't """infantilization" or some shit. women have less body hair than men in general, so less body hair is seen as "feminine" and more is "masculine" that's all. get over it.

Pfft. Men who expect women to remove their pubic hair to be attractive are absolutely infantilising her and admitting they can only get off to prepubescent looking bodies. Nasty business.

No. 448229

Nah, learn history.
>“The campaign against body hair on women originates in Darwin’s 1871 book Descent of Man, explains Herzig. Men of science obsessed over racial differences in hair type and growth (among other aspects of physical appearance), and as the press popularized these findings, the broader American public latched on. Darwin’s evolutionary theory transformed body hair into a question of competitive selection—so much so that hairiness was deeply pathologized. “Rooted in traditions of comparative racial anatomy, evolutionary thought solidified hair’s associations with ‘primitive’ ancestry and an atavistic return to earlier, ‘less developed’ forms,” Herzig writes. Post-Descent, hairiness became an issue of fitness.

>An important distinction in this evolutionary framework was that men were supposed to be hairy, and women were not. Scientists surmised that a clear distinction between the masculine and the feminine indicated “higher anthropological development” in a race. So, hairiness in women became indicative of deviance, and researchers set out to prove it. Herzig tells the story of an 1893 study of 271 cases of insanity in white women, which found that insane women had excessive facial hair more frequently than the sane. Their hairs were also “thicker and stiffer,” more closely resembling those of the “inferior races.” Havelock Ellis, the scholar of human sexuality, claimed that this type of hair growth in women was “linked to criminal violence, strong sexual instincts … [and] exceptional ‘animal vigor.’”

>By the early 1900s, unwanted hair was a significant source of discomfort for American women. They desired smooth, sanitized, white skin. They wanted to be feminine. “In a remarkably short time, body hair became disgusting to middle-class American women, its removal a way to separate oneself from cruder people, lower class and immigrant,” writes Herzig.”

But you act all moreal because yhey got fucked by a superior culture playing by the same rules of the empire game and in the long run that means modernization, laws and better commerce than what they had with their shitty local ethnic warlords .

The only case i can think off of a more advanced civilization getting the btfo treatment in a way that was historically harmful was the mongol conquest of China and middle east. An objectively shitty and backwards culture dominating a more advance one instead of the other way around, that was more tragic than British colonizing Zulus who were killing each other in their shitty mud hut empire anyways.

I really don't understand why making fun of poor lower class americans is so accepted. Of course they're uneducated like lower class people in almost every country, that's part of being lower class, not having access to good education.

At the end of the day lower class people of every race are all poor and therefore uneducated and uneducated people say or do stupid things - but this still doesn't make them evil.

NTA, but I still think it's good because it lets other, lurking anons learn, and it also shuts down the growth of /pol/tard bullshit. I believe the reason this ideology festered on 4chan is because many users, especially young ones, typically are mentally vulnerable and also not very knowledgeable, making them easy prey for weirdos to push any fringe beliefs that stroke their egos and tell them they're the best (even if it's for shitty reasons, or just completely inaccurate).

There's nothing non-feminine about having body hair, it's just that racist, retarded scrotes made up shit about women being crazy savages for not being bald everywhere but the head.

Having a completely bald body is not natural for women just because we grow less body hair on average. By your logic, since we also put on weight more easily than men, it'd be sensible for men to demand we become obese or some other stupid bullshit, and those of us who see that it's dumb need to "get over it".

I dunno if this is really an unpopular opinion or not but I think it’s insane that people pay 1000 dollars for smartphones.
It’s crazy that the price range is so high but it’s normal cuz almost everyone has one. And then they get rid of their 1000 dollar phone and get the “new” one when it comes out. Maybe I’m exaggerating but I’m amazed that some people spend that money because it’s popular and they can barely afford necessities.
Anyway, I also think about all of last years phones that get thrown out for new stuff that’s pretty much the same thing. It’s all wasteful. A waste of money and a waste of resources

also you can go through a potentially traumatizing experience without getting PTSD, which is an actual disorder that needs to be treated to go away. and all of these kids claim they have PTSD. from what? some older guy hitting you up on gaiaonline? ridiculous. get a life outside of this toxic internet culture before you become the next soren.

Well, i have to say i understand what you mean. I've noticed it too.

I have a psicologist friend, she would tell me it was incredibly common for patients to fake abuse because it was a good scapegoat and a lot of people just want to play the victim for attention, irl support groups always feature someone who is just lying or exaggerating and do it shamelessly so no reason to believe in the internet is not that much more common. Especially with me too hype and stuff where people instantly believe the victim no matter what.

Its a very delicate issue, diagnostics are hard, everything now is like a landmine field, a lot of people who truly need help are going untreated because they can't open ip but a lot of attention seeking liars are getting an scot free card to be narc assholes and blame it all on pass abuse that didn't happen like they say. Even worse, its being used as a weapon to ruin people's lives and reputations and this is the same shit that happened during religious and political times of persecution, people jump in a bandwagon and suddenly everyone is possesed by satan and everyone's neighbor is an insurgent, etc.

I cannot stomach reddit and how everyone is an uwu victim shitting on their families, friends, coworkers, etc for instant validation.

Having a bad day? your mother told you off when you screamed at her? go on the internet, make a long story of how she beat you, raped you and emotionally abused you, thats a healthy way to sublimate , instantly feel better when strangers kiss your ass and never admit you are wrong.

I've been wanting to share this screenshot for a while. It kind shows how that sub is just a giant pity party that wont get you any real help (Also most of the comments were saying dump the therapist).
You're right about that sub being full of overdramatic people. Half the sub was gaslit on how their childhood wasn't abuse most of their life so the people there try to make up for it by affirming every rando who goes into the sub and asks of their parents are narcissists. This ends up with a bunch of teens and actual narcs thinking they were abused. Even if they where abused its a common fact on that sub people can develop fleas, picking up some of their psrents bad traits while growing up, and no one ever tries to call people out for that.

No. 448832

this is actually sad. if these people (who are undoubtedly mostly teenagers or young adults) follow advice like "no contact" it might damage their close relationships for life. i think these kind of subreddits are a bad influence if they are not strictly moderated like for example r/legaladvice (at least it seems to be). they should endorse problem solving not crazy bpd behaviour.

It's pretty well known that rbn has a 'safe space' vibe to it so you can't point out to people when they are describing really mundane disagreements with their parents.

I usually believe most of the sexual abuse stories on here only because I want to believe in the women of this community. Call me naive or something but I'd rather believe the stories on here than on any other online space because everytime I read a post about sexual abuse I just project myself in the shoes of the anon that made the post and think they're like me and that they felt comfortable opening up on this image board.

It's crazy how many people lie about being abused in their childhood or how many people blow what happened to them out of proportion. It's sad because those that are the real victims lose credibility because of those that are lying and people become skeptical.

No. 448874

Does something have to be "horrible" abuse for it to be abuse?
Just because a person posts something mundane doesn't necessarily mean they've only ever posted mundane things.
Lots of families are shitty. You are looking at a subreddit where people are directed to post about their shitty families.

I don't see how someone posting about their "lesser" situations invalidates someone who went through childhood sexual abuse.

No. 448875

No contact is the last step, you try everything else before that, go to family therapy if you can or even just a crisis nurse. If your family member is refusing there is not much you can do, I find it disturbing that people judge others for going no contact. That person has mulled it over and over in their head no doubt, if you do not know the history never shame someone who has gone no contact. I'm sure lots of people fake abuse but I would never accuse someone of that without proof, as an abuse survivor myself with no contact I'd be mortified if someone said I faked everything. It's extremely hard to make that decision, I still miss my parents but multiple mental health professionals told me to keep my distance, so I do. I get judged by others sometimes 'it's your mom or it's your dad' dont be that person if you don't know what they went through, just some advice.

There are a lot of extremely toxic support groups or online communities dedicated to abuse survivors, because these communities attract a lot of BPDs that are obsessed with being victims forever and other attention seeking people that aren't even going through abuse or are just going or went through things that are not that bad as they make it out to be. In these communities any real advice will be labeled as "victim blaming", so ultimately their users are not even encouraged to get better or be aware of what they're doing wrong, it just encourages them to live in these communities by circle jerking on how much they were abused. I don't think anyone is denying that these communities truly have people that are actual victims, but ironically those that are not tend to be the most active, as they're using victimhood as a way to cope with their life and recieve attention.
This is an example. A professional has no interest in making someone's life worse or downplaying their abuse, the intention of the professional that told their patient they're having a victim complex was to make the patient self-conscious and to help them better their lives and their mentality. Of course, the patient absolutely refused believing or even considering that they might have a victim complex problem and they went on the subreddit to get positive affirmation about how they are not having a victim complex but the therapist is just crazy and is trying some victim blaming technique on their patient. The advice was to "change therapist" because for us, the people of this community there's no possibility of us being wrong, it's just others that don't understand us, the real victims of abuse. This is not advice, telling someone to just change therapists when their current one told them something that made them feel bad is not advice, that's a therapist's job they must make you face the truth and get a better mentality. Telling someone who's parents might not even be CRAZY ABUSIVE BPD NARCISSISTS to completely cut contact with their parents is also not very great advice.

All of this being said, I still believe these communities do have people that were victims but the truth is a lot of them were not or at least they were not as much as they claim to be. Also, the concept of "abuse" is highly subjective nowadays because technically anything that is not according to your expectations or that slightly hurts you will be considered abuse. This world is not perfect, the people living on this planet are not perfect, parents make mistakes. If your mom can't afford enough food for you as a child she's just poor, if she didn't give you sweets she did it because she thought she was in your best interest, not because she was a crazy abusive narcissist.

Back in my reddit browsing days I would read these threads and list off the amount of things that my parents also did from these threads, but they weren't abusive. They just weren't perfect and they believed in discipline

I love how you're in this thread because you think people call their parents narcs too quickly, yet you call people entitled fats who think it's weird for people to ban entire food categories from their kids. And it is weird and ineffective parenting behavior btw.
Be nice to your kids and let them have a piece of candy. Jeez.

It's neglect, not necessarily narc behavior. Narc behavior would be denying or restricting your food or not prioritizing the purchase of your food.

the relationship can be unhealthy, toxic, hard to deal with etc without the parent being a narcissist or even abusive.

this post a 100%. I was diagnosed with BPD at 17 (i know…) by a shrink who otherwise did a lot of…very unprofessional shit and closed myself into that diagnosis, joined a bunch of "bpd support groups" where everyone was always telling me how valid I was and it just gave me excuses to be a shitty person. Getting out of these "support" groups and quitting drugs were the two best things that I ever did for my mental health, my well being as well as the well-being of other people around me.

ah yes only because clearly no one ever actually gets abused and only lies about it, right?
the reason why no one shows proof often is because a lot of proof to that would often expose personal information, or the victim was a child at the time and didn't know what was happening therefore doesn't have proof when they're old enough to know what happened to them and that it was wrong, why should we scream liar in their face because of that?

obviously you shouldn't do that, stop exaggerating so hard. you can't expect everyone to believe and pity you.

No. 449011

I never said pity, it's toxic to claim someone is lying simply because of how they worded one thing, what's even more toxic is wrongfully accusing victims of lying. Obviously you can't make everyone pity or believe but when you're gonna be an asshole about it or try to believe someone was lying over something that doesn't even make SENSE as to a reason to believe they lied, I don't see why I can't say anything about it

If you think someone was lying without any good reason to do so, you're a piece of shit, plain and simple, it's not about "getting everyone to believe and pity"

No. 449017

>it's toxic to claim someone is lying simply because of how they worded one thing, what's even more toxic is wrongfully accusing victims of lying
never did any of that. i just don't personally believe them and if you have a problem with that it's just your personal issues about you needing everyone to pity and validate your claims without any convincing reason to.
>you think someone was lying without any good reason
you simply can't reason in that way. there is as little reason to believe someone's stories without question. and when someone make accusations about another person the burden of proof is on the accuser.
however, i don't expect everyone to share my view. hence posting in this thread lmao. try to calm down.

I have something similar. My manipulative ex broke down to me a couple of years into our relationship about how his bipolar was first triggered by the suicide of his best friend. He couldn't bear to talk about it so I never pressed him for details, although years later he mentioned writing a paper in school about how much he missed her that he said the teacher was moved by. It's been years since I had any contact with him but I only recently realised how it was probably just another one of his crazy ways to make me feel bad for him, none of his friends or family or anyone ever mentioned any girl from his school killing herself. I can't decide if it's more likely it was a huge lie for attention, or just he was dumb enough to fall for the "catfish that fakes suicide" thing that used to always happen in those days. I'll never know or confront him about it and it eats me up.

Her post was rational. Denying a kid occasional sweets just makes it seem more enticing. How many kids did you know growing up that snarfed sweets when given the opportunity because they were denied anything at home or on special occasions? It's okay if a kid has ice cream once in a while, it's okay if they have candy at the movies. You don't have to be crazy about denying it and teaching moderation and to enjoy something as an occasional treat is a great strategy for helping them develop healthy eating patterns at a young age. You are overreacting.

No. 449113

I think excusing your bad behavior due to mental illness should be acceptable. Especially in cases for people with tourettes and dissociative disorders. Although I do now people will try to take advantage and some already do, so these illnesses should require doctors notes or something official that should be carried by the person at all times just in case. Is this already a thing? I don't know much lmao.

No. 449117

Ntayrt but I would argue that obesity counts as a threatening health condition.

Sweets are like anything else- too much is a bad thing, but it's fine in reasonable amounts.

When I was little, we always had soda, chips, and cookies in the house. Instead of getting fat, though, I just burned out and got bored of junk. Having access to it all the time destroyed the novelty, and I eventually developed a taste for somewhat weird things my mom never kept around, like spanikopita or eel.

The only junk I still like today is baked BBQ Lay's. Everything else is just boring, even the spicy stuff.

No. 449120

Sorry for the double post but I'm pretty sure this is why Momokun got fat. Her athlete father was so meticulous with diet that Moo never learned how to consume treats sparingly. So now that dad isn't around to force her to not eat junk, Moo indulges every day. She's a great example of how controlling kids too much makes them go nuts when they have freedom.

A piece of candy once a day might actually teach the kid that candy is just another kind of food, and not a holy grail that needs to be eaten as much as possible whenever it's available.

Ehh, we don't need to increase nitpicking for men for the sake of ~equality~, there just needs to be less nitpicking of women.

I agree. The people obsessed with how their muscles look aren't even necessarily healthy or strong, anyway. Bodybuilders do it purely for appearance. Actual strongmen still have some fat.

ummmmmmm… ok… i don't care about men's feelings. i think in general fostering really critical mentalities about appearance or normalizing the objectification of people is harmful in general to even the people who are doing the objectifying or nitpicking. it's not a good thing and by saying "we should just _____ men as much" you'll never get rid of the ______ of women, because men will just forever use the fact that they're also being _______'d (which they don't necessarily even care about because men are not self aware) as leverage to continue to _____ women. it goes for anything. for objectification, for nitpicking, for rape, for literally any offense. it makes 0 sense to try to "level the playing field" by being shitty, because men don't care about actually making improvements. they would happily sit in grime and shit and muck and use women's behavior to continue to victimize us as long as it gets them off or whatever. men do not seek to improve the world. they're dumb spergs that will reach until their cervical spines are literally severed in trying to "eVoLuTiOnAriLy" justify whatever terrible offense humans commit as being sane or rational or sensible and forever unchanging. it goes for fucking everything. like, literally any human vice will be forever justified in the male mind as being "natural" and therefore fixed and must be "good" in some """evolutionary""" way, even if it's like, literally fake and untrue. meeting their degeneracy and awfulness means there's no chance of ever improving.(lolcow.farm/info)

People say they want boys over girls because they're afraid of pregnancy, but that makes absolutely no sense because a) a boy can knock up multiple girls at once and b) with a girl you have so much more influence over whether or not she's on birth control. Also, girls are much more mindful of pregnancy than boys are since they're the ones going through it. When you say "I prefer boys cuz pregnancy" you're either and idiot or implying you wouldn't force your son to man up and take responsibility over his kid. Which is also stupid since the girl's parents will no doubt get the law involved and force him to pay child support anyway.

I can't fathom how anyone who knows even the basics of his case could see him as intelligent. First of all, like you said, the resources at the time for catching murderers was abysmal. They didn't even have the database for helping police catch serial killers back then because there had been so few known cases of them. Also, the way Bundy got caught was purely due to his own idiocy. He hunted at a local lake with tons of witnesses and used his real name and car to pick up two of the girls. The entire reason he was named as a suspect was because police announced they were looking for a guy named Ted who drove a tan Beetle and sure enough several people reported Bundy.

No. 450109

Yeah moving around worked for him as police departments couldn't or in some cases just wouldn't communicate with each other. He messed up plenty of times and had some close calls. People also paint him as charming when he seems really false and sly in any footage I've seen. All very superficial

I feel bad for Dylan Klebold's mom, she seems like a decent person. For twenty years she's agonized over the fact that she raised a monster, and that the media often blamed her for what happened. He was on medication and in therapy iirc, so it's clear she knew there was a problem and was trying to help.

Eric's parents are psychos, though. They've been absolutely quiet about the whole ordeal. Says a lot imo.

Male children are a huge gamble these days, especially if you're white. The odds of ending up with a son who is violent, a sexual predator, a misogynist, entitled, a pornsick, or a racist seem so high. It seems like most of these shooters come from loving, middle-class families.

Fat women are gross.

In my experience, most are miserable and difficult. They're so unhappy with themselves and project it onto everyone else. They have terrible personalities. Often they're stupid, too.

There's the fat acceptance movement, which if it had stuck with just not insulting or targeting fat people when they're out in public would be fine. But women made it all about embracing their unhealthy and ugly lives as if laziness and indulgence should be celebrated and powerful.

When I worked customer service and a fat or obese lady needed help, I gave my regular good service. Somehow they always had a way to find a problem and get indignant. Rather than trying to make it right like I would for everyone else I would calculate a passive aggressive way to give her shitty service.

I don't feel the same way about fat men at all. I don't find them attractive but I don't judge them like I do women. Fat men are usually insecure and ashamed so I try to give them extra conversation or service.

Sorry to fat anons. I know there's exceptions and even the fat acceptance warriors are hard to come by, but is there some reason that if you're obese and 30+ you have to be a stupid cunt to everyone?

Fiction has always affected reality. We invented fiction to teach concepts to our young without them having to experience things themselves. Stories like red riging good and Hansel and Gretel are perfect examples of cautionary tales and fiction that affects reality. Lies are fiction that affect reality.

My mother was a very lean and beautiful woman in her 20s, she diet a lot and exercised, sadly she suffered from congenital disease and after 30 her health started taking a toll. When she died at 40 she was very big, she had a disease that affected her muscles and could not be very active, she was afraid of even getting up sometimes because she might have an episode and would be lying incapacitated, yet she worked and took care of me during the long years that she was struggling with that illnes. During my entire school years on top of dealing with all the hardship and grief of that situation i had to deal with kids incesantly making fun of her and making fun of me because fat people are fair game, its never going to be not PC to be cruel to fat people.

Doing the male version sounds more tasteful especially if the female variant's costume makes no sense with his story.

no ones saying they're oppressed, they're saying they face issues because they're a woman
anyway, I've never seen a feminist mope about how "Poor -female millionaire- is being oppressed!!", I have seen feminists speak about how rich women have been harassed, assaulted or violated. I don't see why feminists can't point out issues that particular women have faced. I will again point out literally any other group of people can point out issues certain billionaires face whether it be because of their race, religion, sexuality, etc. No one says shit. Someone points out some issues a few female billionaire in particular have faced and everyone loses their damn minds

however I would like to see a feminist claiming female millionaires as a group are oppressed if that's what you meant, but it's probably just another case of feminist boogieman paranoia strawmans where you probably just saw a feminist discuss times celebrities were assaulted or harassed and now you think the feminists are out there rioting for wealthy women to have rights

No. 452005

Ok… but feminism is not about ranking people's lives from easiest to hardest? It's about misogyny under the patriarchy and the liberation of women, class is interlinked and worth discussing but that doesn't mean feminists lose credibility by being upper middle class, or that their experiences as women are not relevant if they have money, or that they are free of patriarchal influence.

People who follow current, mainstream pop and music culture can be so fucking dense sometimes. They can be quick to scream payola!! about something they dont like but applaud previous records being broken set forth by streaming, even though billboard and the music industry conspiciously stretched how sales units and music consumption works just so streaming can be a force in the industry, even though its online based and can easily be manipulated by bots sent by corporations which is conspiratoral as fuck in itself, even though radio and BB has been owned by 6 corporations only since the mid 90s which makes artists achieving records FAR more easier than it should be and harder for artists who arent super backed or supported by their label. But people want to just call you a hater when you point these very real facts out. I dont know, something about this is fucking off and doesnt sit right with me but faggots get so triggered when you say maybe the numbers are inflated and being manipulated.

The do know and that's exactly why the music industry loves reggaeton so much, because is dirt cheap to produce and takes zero effort compared to other genres that require composition, several music instruments , much more recording and production time and actual skill. These urban genres are a godsend for them, they can put these albums out by the dozens and the bar is very low , always appealing to lowest common denominator, is not even good lirically and the singers can't even sing and is misogynistic as hell.

>what the hell is the deal with accordians?

saying "sexuality is a spectrum" or "everyone's a little bit gay" is counterproductive for gay rights. there's only heterosexuality, bisexuality and homosexuality, if you're one of them you are strictly one of them. humans aren't secretly some majority bisexual species. if you are attracted to transgenders knowing they are trans you are probably bisexual. attraction is sex based. it's really not that complicated.

I've found that thinking of sexuality as a spectrum made it harder for me to even label what I am.

No shit there are people who are too stubborn to get better and obviously I never said that it was as easy as flipping a switch. It does take awhile to undo years of ulhealthy habits that lead to mental health issues but it is worth struggling through. Medication hasn't even been found to reliabily
help the severely depressed, because as much as it is a biological phenomena it's still first and foremost a psychological issue.

My asshole family was stupid as hell about mental health but one thing I'm thankful for is that they never enabled my victim mentality or made me believe that I was unable to ever make positive changes in my life. You wonder why people on places like /r9k/ seem to fester in their mental illness with no chance of ever getting better, it's because they have convinced themselves that the issue is outside of their control and they have an entire community of people just as sick as they are reinforcing their dumb beliefs and negative mindset.

No. 453327


The dependence of the unborn still does not explain why killing it out of convenience is justifiable. You are faced with two human rights that are in conflict with each other (right to life vs. right to not be pregnant).
Cases like that are very common and solved by upholding the more fundamental right. The more fundamental right always belongs to the party that risks to be most negatively affected. In the case of the mother she will have to deal with fatigue,less mobility and pain (in severe cases psychological pain) temporarily.

The unborn however faces death and an extinguised future that lasts forever.

Therefore it is hard to deny that the right to life is more fundamental than the right not to be pregnant.

>In the case of the mother she will have to deal with fatigue,less mobility and pain (in severe cases psychological pain) temporarily.
Here's the problem with this line of argument: the effects of childbearing last after you're finished being pregnant. Doctors specifically ask if you've been pregnant because it's a medical condition. The reason why the right not to be pregnant is a big deal isn't just about temporary hardship or the lifetime burden of a child, it's about the damage it does to the body. Your pelvic floor, spine, all kinds of stuff. Some women who have preexisting psychological issues can have actual psychotic breaks postpartum.
I think abortion sucks and I wish it didn't have to exist, mostly for late term, because the thought of having to destroy that potential is sad, but it has to because of how awful unwanted pregnancy is. I can't have a baby right now. People need to just use birth control if they're in a consensual sexual relationship, and abort if things go wrong with the birth control or if you get raped, etc.

No. 453359

>Also: does that mean you are in favour of a time limit for abortions (20 weeks ?)
Absolutely, with the exception of severe health problems.

>Good point, but what about people being murdered in their sleep/while unconscious.

It is very different because those are fully formed people with emotions and sentience who aren't dependent on the sacrifice of another human's bodily autonomy to continue development.

I personally find abortion very sad and think it shouldn't be taken lightly as a decision, however I feel that the outcome of its illegalization is far worse than having it accessible. It punishes desperate women in such a brutal way by forcing them to give birth or potentially maim/kill themselves by seeking back alley procedures, makes rape victims carry their rapists babies, and basically turns every woman into a potential forced incubator.

No. 453363

Anon, you are severely downplaying the risks and complications that can often result from pregnancy, sometimes life threatening. It isn't simply "pain and fatigue", pregnancy can be life threatening and render you disabled. Diabetes, serious heart problems, and other really real problems can result or be worsened by fully carrying a baby to term. And if you're raped, the results of being forced to have your rapist's baby sure as fuck aren't "temporary".

>Therefore it is hard to deny that the right to life is more fundamental than the right not to be pregnant.

What about the woman's right to life? Denying women the right to an abortion literally kills them, is that really worth forcing them to develop fetuses? Not only do they die from illegal abortions, but "life of the mother exceptions" have been proven to lead to maternal death because if they're not 100% sure, they usually won't allow the abortion. Many women have died this way.

No. 453382


A lot to unpack here. I get your point and what you are saying is factually correct. But you are also generalizing the changes a woman's body goes through in pregnancy by classifiying them all as "damages".

First of all, the maternal mortality rate during childbirth decreases with every pregnancy a woman carries to term - meaning that a woman is less likely to die during her 3rd labour than her first one.

But that is only true to a certain point, when it comes to the 7th, 8th or 9th child a lot of woman's bodies reach their limit and can be permanently damaged.

Now even if what you are saying is completely true: Childbirth/Pregnancy is still significantly less life threatening/damaging than death. (Duh)

So my point still stands - pregnancy is less harmful to the mother than abortion is to the unborn.

No. 453385

So, since you're so in favor to sacrificing women's bodily autonomy during pregnancy because it's less of a sacrifice to you, then how about we throw out bodily autonomy when it comes to organ transplants as well? The logic you're using here could easily be applied to this situation as well.

>Childbirth/Pregnancy is still significantly less life threatening/damaging than death. (Duh)

The physical effects to the forced donor aren't nearly as bad as inevitable death, after all. (Duh)

>So my point still stands - pregnancy is less harmful to the mother than abortion is to the unborn.

Being forced to donate organs is less harmful to the donor than death is to the person who needs a transplant.

>Therefore it is hard to deny that the right to life is more fundamental than the right not to be pregnant.

Therefore it is hard to deny that the right to life is more fundamental than the right to not be forced to donate your organs.

No. 453386


I am in favor of abortion when it comes to situations where the life of the mother is at stake.

And obviously you are correct when saying that pregnancy can be very hard on women and leave behind permanent damages.

I was trying to say that the undesirable condition of the woman (pregnancy) is only temporary while the child's condition (death) is permanent. Therefore it stands to reason that the unborn's condition is more serious. Diabetes and heart problems suck - but you can't tell me that they are more damaging to the mothers health than abortion is to the child's health.

In much easier terms: It seems reasonable to assume that being pregnant isn't as bad as being dead.

No. 453388

It's a fetus. I care more about the person who already exists, feels pain, emotions, and has to sacrifice themselves to incubate the clump of cells with no ability to perceive what is happening. I care more about people who are here than potential people. At the end of the day, we're just not going to see eye to eye because of that fundamental difference in world view.

No. 453390


Your analogy is almost correct, but it contains a fallacy: In your analogy the organ transplant has not yet taken place- but when it comes to a pregnancy the unborn child is already using the mother's organs.

So your analogy would be more correct like this: Can an organ donor kill somebody in order to take back his kidney after the transplantation surgery ?

No. 453394

But if the transplant doesn't happen, the person needing it will still die. It's absolutely a perfect analogy because it boils down to your right to bodily autonomy vs. someone dying as a result of it. People die waiting on organ transplant lists, thus people are dying over other's right not to have their organs harvested. Your analogy of hunting someone down to get the organ back would be more accurate to compare to killing the child after it is already born.

No. 453397


Fetus means "little one" and describes a developmental stage in a human's life (just like baby,toddler, child, etc)

And the fetus, like the mother, exists. It might not feel pain or emotions but there are many already born people who are like that as well. The fetus can be compared to someone lying in a 9-month long coma after which he/she will awake and be able to feel pain/show emotions.

And why does the right to live need to be bound to the ability to feel pain ?

Calling it a clump of cells just functions to dehumanize it - you are basically a (big) clump of cells.

If no transplant has taken place then by your analogy, no pregnancy has taken place either.

A lighter unpopular opinion I guess: A lot of "commentary channels" on youtube aren't much better than the content they critique, and sometimes they just come across as weirdly bitter and jealous of other successful youtubers.

I'm not trying to dismiss them as "haters", but I've noticed many of them say the same thing in their videos: "ugh why does this shitty content/youtuber get so many views? how are these people millionaires while actually good content creators (like myself) are barely getting paid?!". Like they're genuinely angry about how 'unfair' the internet is and feel entitled to some type of recognition. But in reality a lot of commentary youtubers aren't even that talented, their whole channel is just them ranting/insulting bad content (videos, movies, music, etc.)–basically glorified reaction channels. They love to pretend that they aren't as money hungry as other internet celebs but also love to beg for likes/subscribers, do sponsorships, and won't hesitate to sell merch and do tours/meet and greets. They just try to justify it by saying they're deserving of this because their content is "good" or they're a decent person so they deserve it. Some might be funny/entertaining but it just seems hypocritical to attack a creator when most commentary channels don't even create their own original content, and most would probably also be really shitty at it if they tried to. There's a reason why so many people are trying to be commentary channels–it's literally the easiest content to make, all you have to do is state your opinion on something and/or rant about how bad something is. As long as you have a bearable personality you're bound to get some views, so it's weird that they act like they're the god-tier of youtube.

They just want one for sympathy points and to fix a broken relationship.
My boyfriend's sister is a great example of someone who had a child and she knew she wouldn't be stable enough to raise her. She ended up losing custody of her daughter because she was in and out of rehab and drowning in bills because she and her baby daddy bought a house ~for the status~ and they didn't know how to take upkeep the house.

No. 453708

A lot of people in my hometown have had kids by accident and kept them because "it's what you're supposed to do", not because they wanted them and sometimes it depresses me how they treat said children vs how people who actually really wanted kids treat theirs. I see young girls (21-22) walking with their toddler and completely ignoring them when the kids want attention from their mums, or just giving them to their parents to raise while they go and party. Most of them don't have jobs and just assume their parents will help them financially as well. The kids are always starved for their parents' attention, and that's if the dad sticks around.

But it's God's will uwu! It's just God testing them to see how much they can take! Never mind that the child can't breathe without heavy medical appliances they can't afford, can't move or go to school and will never become anything useful, it's still a gift from God!

Shounen Jump series in particular are always going to be derivative and have obvious influence from one another. Jump is a brand, it's in their/the business's best interest to have their readers find similar enjoyment in many series. Plus it's such a small, insular genre that it'd be hard to define a series as battle shounen without sharing tropes and cliches across the board.

I think that's because HxH deviated from the norm in its later arcs. Granted, the first few arcs were your run-of-the-mill shounen tropes, but as the story progresses it goes in some pretty bizarre directions that I honestly liked.

Also, BNHA has way more in common with HXH than it does with Naruto. In addition to having similar powers, Izuku even looks like Gon, which spawned memes like pic related.

Today I went to pick up my youngest sister from my old highschool and saw the men's bathroom that the teachers have to use. It's an old bathroom and when the doors open it opens directly on the urinals so you can see everyone who's standing there peeing, it's pretty undignifying. I remembered with my friends when we would see the teachers peeing we would be so cruel about, like act so disgusted, mime vomiting, scream, cover our eyes and say horrible things, all when they were just trying to pee and probably didn't like it any more than we did. I realised that I think some typical incels (is this just a catch all term for right wing men on the internet now?) have a point when they point out the disdain women have for unattractive men. I mean on the one hand I was fawning over my boyfriend who it's true I was LITERALLY letting him do and say whatever he wanted, but on the other hand really being so fucking malicious towards my maths teacher just because he was old and fat and forced by the shitty school to pee next to the doorway.

I was definitely aware of that. I used to work with truckers and let me tell you, a lot of these people are retarded as fuck. It doesn't take long for someone to obtain a CDL.

I don't know where you live, but here in California, semis are horrible drivers, since most haven't been on the road more than a year. My particular area hosts the schools where college flunkies go to learn how to truck drive. Traffic on the freeway is always hell.

Bus drivers, specifically school drivers, are really good at their job here, and it is taken very seriously. When school bus drivers are frequently late dropping off their students more than 15 minutes, they're fired. They're expected to keep the bus clean and act professional at all times; there's been lots of fired bus drivers when I was in high school. Most bus drivers that kept their jobs, had been doing it over 20 years. They're all trained in CPR and medical emergencies (allergy, convulsions, etc), and hijacking/gun safety, (which I know is common knowledge about bus drivers, but it just shows you the hiring process is a little better). That driver is responsible for the student's safety. Bus drivers are rarely a problem here.

As someone who has dated in my age group and never been able to find maturity (a stable career or college grades, income, sense of self, not getting plastered every weekend) or commitment ("I'm just not ready." "Don't you want to try different partners and find what you like sexually?" "Marriage is dated."), no thank you. I unapologetically like older men. I think women have this image I'll date any random older dude, in the same way teen girls in the locker room are afraid that a lesbian will find them attractive because lesbians find every single woman attractive, right? I still have standards. The average boomer is gross, ill kept, and ill mannered. Single men in their middle age are a red flag, and especially those who pry on young girls, but consider that some of us have an older social group due to our jobs, schooling interests, or hobbies. I tend to be around older guys all day, and have acquaintances. It's not really surprising I may like to date one after working by their side for a few years for the reason we are close and good friends. I've never met a young guy who became my friend before asking me out; it was immediate, they didn't care about my interests, and they pressured for sex. They eventually left when I wouldn't put out. All of my relationships with older men have just been nice, and slow paced. I feel like a human being and not a sex doll (but I have encountered my fair share of shitty older dudes that just want a lay too, though I never had interest in them to begin with). I find my odds of having a satisfying relationship go up when I date out of my arbitrary age range, with a certain level of carefulness.

Also, who cares about me, I should date a 20 year old asshole that cheats on me and gives me nothing in return! Am I right? lol

My grandparents were an age gap couple, my grandmother was the older one, but closer to his age (a difference of 5 years). Her husband cheated on her on multiple occasions with women much older, and was a verbally abusive dick bag who died of an alcohol problem. He was my age.

All of my abusive relationships have been with younger males. Porn makes 'em entitled. Older dudes grew up in a generation where they were expected to take care of their women, and it shows. Not to say you aren't right, my parents are also an age gap couple of 10 years and my dad was an abusive, controlling cunt. It really comes down to the individual. I think I'm just better at picking up on abusive behaviors in older men and knowing what to avoid due to being an only child in a household of silenters, boomers, and Xers. I'm shitty at picking it up in my own age group because it presents differently.

There's a bunch of commentary like youtubers from the UK that I hate. They're all early twenties 'lads' that are living in nice apts just from making ten min long vids on whatever is popular each week.

They complain about depression and poor sleeping habits cos 'ooh the tough life of a youtuber' they joke about having no friends when they are a friend group of about 10 guys?? They joke about never going out but their instagrams show them out and it's like stop trying to be relatable guys

Their editing is minimal and they have a teen girl audience that adores them for basically no reason other than them maybe being genuinely depressed and lonely young girls watching

I've dated younger and older and had worse experiences with the older guy, all down to the person really, not the age

I dated a 40 year old when I was 27, he paid the rent but in return I was talked down to in any argument, had to bite my tongue alot, his kid didn't like me and I tried but could do nothing right on the weekends he stayed.. oh and this man was as porn sick as any young guy

He once got in a mood and stormed out of the house, I had no idea what I'd done wrong. Then I received a long email telling me that I either needed to fist his ass to give him a prostate milking or I could get all my things out of his house and go sleep rough..

steve irwin was a terrible animal educator and was not a decent advocate for animals. he was disrespectful of animals and was very careless. he brought his baby in, mere feet from a crocodile, when feeding a crocodile, and his general treatment of wild animals was horrible. i hate the way everyone remembers him as being respectful and responsible. he was not.

cousteau was right about him:
>Cousteau stated that Irwin would “interfere with nature, jump on animals, grab them, hold them, and have this very, very spectacular, dramatic way of presenting things. Of course, it goes very well on television. It sells, it appeals to a lot people, but I think it’s very misleading. You don’t touch nature, you just look at it.”

his habit of manhandling nature and animals to children and to a generally impressionable audience was very harmful and he was a bad influence. he should be remembered as a reckless and irresponsible fool that didn't truly care about animals. the harm he had the potential to do is immeasurable

Anime is fucking awful, as are video games.

I tried to get into them because I was nostalgic for Pokemon, Tomb Raider, and Sailor Moon (etc.) that I loved when younger. Aside from classics like Cowboy Bebop or a beautifully done indie game like Journey, it's all horrible. Wildly inappropriate fan service, weird inconsistent dialect (seriously, I have no idea what's going on a lot of the time, too many plot holes), over-exaggerated and overused facial expressions/tropes, just pedophilia and disrespect for female characters in general. Plus, unlike old school anime (think Naruto with its own distinctive style), it all looks alike now, especially after 2011. Video games are less like this, but they lack creativity to solve levels now. It's mostly shooting, grinding, or both. Everything "nerdy" just sucks in general now, like Marvel, but that's not an unpopular opinion and I'd say at least the Avengers is mildly entertaining.

I really hate the constant fanservice. It's one thing if it's a "natural" and somewhat casual scene every once in a while but a lot of anime has a ridiculous amount of it. I remember one anime I watched years ago was really cute and heartwarming, but also had a disgusting amount of fanservice where a very young girl was dressing up and had a bunch of old men drooling over her. She was clearly uncomfortable and crying out for them to stop. It's really disgusting, if they are going to add fanservice why does it have to be something so predatory? It just makes me sad

I liked him when I was much younger, immature, and cringier, this was probably about 2012 ish but I outgrew him by 2013 and unsubbed from him, rarely watched his content since and I was surprised to see that he's somehow become worse since then. Somehow I think he should've stuck to autistically screaming at video games.

giving other lets players the benefit of the doubt I used to be a lot more into the ones who wouldn't be as screamy and would actually comment on the game specs so that's probably why even his early content was easy to outgrow because it was painfully redundant compared to everyone else's content, I still don't know why he retains his status as #1 youtuber when his current content is painful to watch. Theyre so bad I can't make it even 5 mins into his recent videos if someone tried to get me to watch them

Anime is stupid as fuck and gives you brain damage. Every person I’ve ever known who watches anime is retarded and rarely has real life skills/hobbies, and worst of all has been rendered so braindead by anime that they can’t tell blatant pedophilia when it pulls down its panties and rubs its ass on their face

Also agree on games being shit now. Last new game I bought was offworld trading company, I don’t bother keeping up with what’s coming out anymore.

No. 454895

I think both anime and video games are large mediums (not genres) and, because of their size, should not be judged on the usual run-off (both are often very generic because many people are in the industry not to make something beautiful, but to get money, first and foremost), but by the amount of gems that can be found (hidden or not), and their potential as a tool for storytelling.
I wouldn't feel comfortable bashing anime or video games in themselves and calling the entire medium(s) good or bad over the content I've seen alone, any more than I'd feel comfortable doing the same for movies, books or television series as a whole when I know that monetary gain is so heavily prioritized above everything. There's also no fucking way I'm going to watch every TV series, movie or read every book from all eras in a bid to decide if everything is good or bad, so I'd rather just classify the mediums as subjective and take the content therein on a case-by-case basis.
The anime and video game industries, however, are another story, and the same goes for the fan cultures. The way they treat those who work in said industries is abhorrent, and I think many companies pander too heavily to their worst fans, because those are the ones who throw the most money at them. This encourages them to keep behaving the way they do once they've been "seen" by the industry, creating a toxic culture of people who think their loathsome activities and dysfunctional personalities are normal or acceptable (at least when it comes to said mediums, if not life outside them).

I agree with this, but anime in general seems way more autistic and a shit ton of it is sexist and panders to otaku, and this is coming from someone who has been a fan for a long time. The fans are definitely fucking disgusting and autistic and love joking about "waifus" and ogling over anime girls constantly. It's a pretty backwards fandom, which is why I understand why many people are way of it, and also because a ton of mainstream anime is made to appeal to horny, retarded otaku. I tend to consume majority horror-related media, especially manga, but every other recommendation sexualizes girls or women and it's instantly unreadable. And fans make excuses that they're "just drawings" and it's "normal" in Japanese culture lel.

As for video games, it doesn't seem nearly as difficult to find some decent ones, because there are more indie games that don't just focus on trying to sell to the mainstream or promoting sexism.

I really like the Beatles but goddamn their fans are some of the most bitter and insecure people out there. They're constantly defensive of them when someone dares not to like their music, like they feel even the notion of someone having different tastes is wrong just because it's the Beatles. Also not to mention they think the Beatles invented everything having to with music and they influenced everyone and were the only ones who had any impact (all of that not true at all) and they're always dismissive of other influential artists, like there can only be one. It's so annoying - the Beatles are not and never will be the be-all-end-all to music, and they wanna act otherwise, it's pathetic. There's no need to constantly suck on their dick when everyone knows the Beatles are important to music and have sold millions of sales, calm down, we get it, shut up and listen to more music

Honestly I was never concerned about that to begin with. It's wrong to solicit underage nudes, obviously, but I'm just more interested in cheating drama and found Heidi the most credible and reliable person involved so I just focused on what she had to say.

There were a lot of anons who were like 'the cheating isn't the big issue here, it's the nudes!' or it seemed like they relied on the inclusion of a pedo scandal to make him the bad guy when, imo, the cheating was already more than enough.

Am I the only one who thinks Enter The Florpus was absolute shit? I've been a huge Invader Zim fan since I was a kid and obviously had high hopes for this movie, but it just missed the grungy edgyness that the old show used to have.

However I do kinda like the new art style though, except for Dib an Gaz' new character designs.

I actually really liked it, but I do think that has more to do with nostalgia than anything else. It still had a lot of ~*~le random XD~*~ moments a la 2007, but, like you mentioned, it wasn't as gross or dark as it used to be. I also thought Gaz's character felt off, both in design and personality. However, I almost always expect made-for-TV western cartoon movies to be cheesy and feel-good, and that's what it was.

It was ok, I agree with >>455431 it was mostly enjoyable for the nostalgia. I'm seeing a lot of young teens who don't remember when emo or scene was popular and there was a big craze over Zim and Gir finding all this stuff really cool now which is kind of funny and cute.

I didn't mind it and I kinda liked the redesigns. I rewatched the show before watching the movie. I think Jhonen said he didn't want it to be a cheap nostalgia cashgrab but he wanted it to retain the original feel of the show and to me it captivated that and kinda felt like one long episode where Zim actually almost succeeds for some reason. Overall I'd say it was good and rewatching the show brought back a lot of memories for me too, both as a kid who'd watch cartoons that my parents didn't want me to watch bc my parents hated most cartoons, esp spongebob which they thought would make me "dumb" and my time rewatching it when I was an emo teen who was obsessed with the shows motifs and saw gir as the hot topic mascot more or less

It's interesting to see this new wave of Zim fanart and watching dumb tumblr kids latch right onto it. Seeing pic related and "zim is trans" arguments make me feel old.

I have to agree on the fujo part. They aren't really a threat to gay men since most fujos are lesbians anyway and tend to keep to their own circles. It's rare that they ever pursue IRL gay men, unlike straight dudes who pursue/threaten lesbians for their own creepy fantasies. I think the ones who are "fetishizing" gay relationships are fakebois. Like, it's one thing to like yaoi but it's another thing entirely to want to get surgery/horomones just to act it out IRL. Not to mention these people are constantly trying to insert themselves into actual gay male communities and throw a tantrum/yell transphobia when they're denied.
