Does wearing deoderant/antiperspirant repeatedly make you smell worse over time? I feel like it blocks your pores and makes the bacteria build up. I feel like when I wear more deoderant I smell worse when it comes off.
Im not talkimg about natural deoderants either, I'm talking about the big brands like secret, dove etc.

I dated an Asian dude who I was surprised to learn never wore deodorant, because he was taught not to or else he would smell bad forever. And the weirdest thing was that it was actually true - he never smelled, but his brother - who tried deodorant - smells bad without it. So, you might be right, or it might be a race thing, or a conditioned thing. You might need an honest friend to let you know how you smell.

Personally, it makes my skin itch and I've also noticed it makes me smell worse when it fades off.

It can sting, too, but it's better and actually cleaner IMO.

Actually I was just about to ask how can I figure out what I smell like lol. I'm Asian, but I'm not really sure if I have that gene for body odor or not. The few friends I've asked what I smelled like usually say "nothing" and I don't know if they're just being nice or truthful? I'll smell my gym clothes after using them for a couple of really sweaty workouts and they don't smell bad to me, just sort of like… plums? Something sweet. But I always assumed since it's my own body odor of course it wouldn't smell bad lol. On the other hand, my parents bath towel stinks from their BO. I do use deodorant but it's mostly because I don't like the sticky feeling of my sweat building up under there.

My lactose intolerance is so confusing to me. I've established that I can have most dairy products and things cooked with milk (cake, pancakes, etc) with little to no consequences. I know that I can't have straight up milk in any form, not drinking it straight or even with cereal (I used to wet the cereal with milk and then avoid as much of the milk as possible/throw it out at the end). I made my oatmeal with milk the other day in the microwave and my stomach was fine, but I figured since I cooked it in the microwave that's what made it okay. Last night I made overnight oats with milk (i.e. no heat of any sort was used) and I'm still fine after eating it this morning… Just what the fuck is going on with my lactose intolerance? Will this fuck me up in the long run or can I keep going like this as long as my stomach is fine with it? Those overnight oats were god damn good. I have my own soymilk that I drink, but it's a bit expensive compared to regular milk so I don't really want to use it for oats.

Cats sleep about 16 hours a day and are busy cleaning themselves during a bunch of their waking hours as well, so it won't be lonely too much. But it would be good to adopt a cat with a more lazy nonchalant demeanor; some are more needy, social, and playful.

No. 454581

>>454575
Honestly as long as you don't live in a total shoebox and utilize your space wisely I don't think it would be a problem. Cats love to climb so you can use vertical space to your advantage.
A pair of older cats would definitely be good, they'll just laze around and don't need as much space to run around since they're less energetic than kittens. Each individual cat has their own personality, though, so if you adopt just ask the shelter for lazy couch potato cats.

Can somebody explain what the fuck 'non-dairy' actually means? Because all of these coffee creamers, sauces, etc. say 'non-dairy' and then when I look on the back at the ingredients list it says 'Contains: Milk'. How the fuck? What the fuck? Does it contain human milk?

>They do not contain lactose and therefore are commonly described as being non-dairy products, although many contain casein, a milk-derived protein.

so it's milk derived but because it doesn't contain lactose, they can skirt by with "non-dairy". makes no sense to me, but functionally, i guess it does because people generally buy non-dairy items because of the lactose intolerance, though that's changing what with veganism

Do any multilingual anons have suggestions on how to improve a language I speak?


It's a language I was fluent in as a child but a few years have gone by where I didn't have the opportunity to practice because it's a minority language and I'm losing it. I guess my main problem is vocab so I might struggle mid-sentence to say something I'd have no problem being able to say in english or I don't understand an important word someone said and I miss the point of what they're trying to say lol. I just want to be able to speak at a natural pace and not have to second-guess everything I'm saying. There are very few people who speak the language so there isn't a lot of media I can use to "immerse" myself with.

Some things I'm going to try:
>reading/watching the news daily
>re-reading some books I have
>talking to myself during the day and trying to think in the language
>keeping a diary of new words I learn

Something I'm curious about as a dumb kissless virgin: what do women do when it comes to wearing makeup during sex? I assume any makeup you're wearing on your face would get messed up, do people just accept that as a part of sex or are there like…secret tips on how to avoid a mess?

I know there's the whole "messy/runny mascara" trope in porn, and lipstick tends to transfer when kissing, but in most portrayals of sex the woman's face looks basically flawless and I feel like that's probably not realistic. Is "sex-proof" makeup a thing people worry about/invest in or do they just not care?

Is it possible to have a stalker but you're attracted to them?

No. 454983

Well first of all, the reason why makeup in porn tends to look flawless is because there's a lot more scene cuts. Some scenes are taped at different intervals, enough time to retouch a smudged eye line or reapply lipstick. And also there tends to be less romantic intimacy like kissing between the actors.
Doesn't mean it's the case for all. If you ever seen blowjob porn the makeup gets absolutely fucked because of all the gagging and tearing up.

It really depends, anon. My makeup tends to get messed up because when I have sex with my partners I'm heavily making out with them. My foundation rubs off and my eyeliner smudges and collects in my eye ducts. The sweat usually fucks my hair too. Sometimes my face gets mashed into a pillow and it's inevitable.
When the sex is less intense my makeup fares better.

Most guys I've been with never commented or cared. The ones who did were weenies and cumbrains who couldn't understand how sweat and friction could take off makeup.

I currently have a temp job at an office and this is my current life. My state's library has an online catalog so on occasion I'll read books through there, but I mostly spend time on LC or reading comics or some shit. I sit at the front desk so I can't watch videos that don't have subtitles available (I don't like to put in earbuds or anything in case we do have guests come by), so I keep it to comfy and cozy videos like Li Ziqi's video, crafting videos, or people who have subtitled videos. I just finish rewatching an anime, but I really don't watch anime in the office that much. I don't read or browse LC at all at home so that posts can pile up and I can read them the next day (makes my home life nicer because I don't blow hours on here, I also regularly keep up with a bunch of ot threads so I have a lot to read). I started reading Homestuck because I knew it would take a while to finish and would keep me busy.

I originally wanted to spend the time learning useful skills like excel or quickbooks, but I have a hard time applying myself to studies when I'm not in a classroom setting. It sucks that a lot of self study material that I find are un-subtitled videos too. My gig is only temp and I'm slowly starting to get sick of it, so hopefully I'll eventually get off my ass and do some productive shit. I like indulging in browsing LC or social media and not being worry free, but now I'm starting to feel overindulged and it's not the same feeling as when you take a quick peek while taking a break from some long assignment.

Can any other Amerifags please explain our fucked health insurance system to me? What the hell is this premium tax credit? Even reading the explanation, I'm still a bit confused. Say if I go for a metal plan that originally costs $500 but I qualify for $300 tax credit, does that mean I pay $500 each month until I file for taxes then get the $300 (per month) back in my refund? Or do I just pay $200 every month and that's it?

What even makes some health insurance companies good/better than others? Is it how widely accepted they are, their pricing (their premiums/deductibles vs other health insurance companies), what they cover, their customer service? In my mind, the only thing that matters being good is my doctor, so as long as my health insurance is accepted by the doctors that I want to go to, does it really matter what insurance I'll pick (if the price points are similar)? I've never bought health insurance on my own, so I have no idea what the fuck I'm doing.

No. 455491

former health insurance fag here to help bb.

>premium tax credit is something you get based on income, it's like tax refund for health insurance specifically, and you get it with your refund


the only difference between companies/plans is the coverage, smaller insurances don't have access to as many doctors as larger companies. keep in mind that companies usually offer 2 types of the same plan HMO and PPO. HMO is a plan based around your PCP (primary care doctor) working with their own network of providers, meaning you can't go to any dr or specialist you want, and you'll need a referral from your PCP. downsides to HMO are basically that you're tied to your PCP's network. PPO is easier, allowing you to go to any doctor you want that is covered by your insurance, but still lets you have a PCP. the downside to PPO is that you research your own specialists outside your PCP and doctors outside network are less eager to communicate with one another about your health issues. PPOS are usually cheaper, and designed for people with less health issues overall.

Thank you anon! I think I understand it a bit better now! I'll probably get a PPO since that's what I had with my parents! I was on an HMO plan with my old job and it was a fucking nightmare doing anything lol.

I was reading into it a bit more and it says I could get the PTC in advance to help pay for my insurance or choose not to. The silver plan I want is so expensive without it, but I used to earn a lot more at my old job so when I file for my taxes, I'm afraid taking the PTC in advance will make me end up owing a lot on my taxes. Is there a way around this? Or should I just play it safe and not get an advance on my PTC and just get it all (if any) back with my refund next year?

Does anyone know how to get rid off this weird fluff/dust/whatever it is from my brush?

I just bought a new one and not a week after using it, there are these weird dusty balls, sometimes even sticky on the side of it and among the brush hair. I do clean the brush of my hair after being done with it, but regular cleaning with water doesn't seem to be that efficient.

Boston is one of the most expensive cities in the nation, but as long as you have a car or access to public transit you can live outside of it and commute in. It still hasn't been my favorite place to live by a stretch. It's missing something.

New England is all right, but the cost of living is so much higher than places like in the south. Also we do have a homeless problem, but it's not as bad as places like Los Angeles.

I do not understand why would anyone take it recreationally.

No. 456637

>>456630
They do but honestly swiping a few pills from your sister wouldn't have done anything. Oftentimes those medications require a cycle of dosing before you notice a difference, not to mention there's a lot of medications for anxieties so even between doctors and patients a lot of it is trial and error to find the one that works the best. When I was in grad school and having bad anxiety I took escitalopram (lexapro), and then years later when I was having bad episodes at a shitty job, Wellbutrin. Then Vyvanse to be used for my binge eating which was how I was coping, and lack of energy.

I'd say each one made me feel "leveled out" if that makes sense. Thing is I didn't feel like my emotions swung one way or another, it was a constant humming normalcy. Wellbutrin and Vyvanse gave me a much needed energy boost at the time. Although my least favorite insofar as side effects was the Wellbutrin.

Some them you have to take for several weeks before they take effect, some (benzos) are immidiate and you should be able to tell if the dosing was right.

How tf do condoms actually break and how do you know it “broke” b4 you get pregnant? I always thought it was a meme. Do they like leak when a guy pulls out or something?

No. 456852

>>456832
If they "break" it's due to improper fit, expired condoms, or using an oil-based lube.
The actual failure of the condom itself is a small chance.
Literally the thing busts apart. So after sex there's a very obvious tear in the condom. Sometimes you can 'feel' too much wetness in your vagina and cum always has a distinguishable smell and fluidity to it.

What happens most often is that the condom slips off and cum leaks inside. Sometimes a guy cums so much and keeps going that the pressure forces the cum up the condom and out the sides. It goes back to the improper fit and use issues, some guys are dumb.
You get dumbshits who don't want to spend the extra to get the bigger condoms if they're hung, or you get the napoleon complex small dudes who want to pretend they fit an xl when in reality it's hanging on their dicks like garbage bags.
Always check to see how the guy puts his on.

Essentially I am a mostly straight girl, and I get off to a range of normal fantasies.. but what I realize is that the common thread in most everything that gets me off is the perverted male perspective. Like if I'm reading a story, yes, I think boobs are cool but I need to know what the man thinks about them to get off. I need to know that the man is objectifying and adoring the woman.. and I fucking hate that. Moreover, most of the stories I read have the woman in a submissive/degrading position.

I can't help but feel that I have been conditioned by society to need male objectification to feel things are sexy. I don't want to be this way. I wonder if I can change what turns me on somehow?? I guess I'd have to stop reading erotic stories and just… think of less sexist shit on my own?

It sounds pretty cerebral to get off on what your (imagined) partner thinks. You may be projecting onto the woman as the object of the man’s desire.
I think it’s possible to be healthy about this though, like if you were in a relationship of course you’d want your partner to find you ‘fuckable’, the hard part is figuring out if the man is sane enough to respect all the things about a woman that aren’t to do with fucking. You just need the cut out the degrading position part.

Recently cut contact after finding out about another massive betrayal that concludes I will never know the full truth of what occurred in my own relationship. I so desperately want the wool pulled over my eyes, but for the first time I walked away and didn't confront the betrayal for once. I didn't ask questions. I didn't give him a way to weasel back in. I thought he'd apologise or plead or something by now, he's been sending goodnight texts for days. I snapped yesterday and sent a brief text saying I hate your lies, what would be the point knowing you without knowing you? I also said I'm getting tested by the doctor bexahs sod infidelity scares. That was 24 hours ago and I've heard nothing. He didn't send a goodnight text either. Think it's been confirmed I've been cheated on lol. It's hard to focus at the minute. I have a lot of unanswered questions and I have to make peace I'm not going to get answers and even if I was to ask him, there's no trusting what he says.

Idk if youre cutting off an ex and they're your closest peer, but no contact sucks. Just keep reminding yourself why you aren't contacting them.

didn't want to necro the japan thread so i'll ask this here: can i get some basic tips for saving money on a weeklong trip to tokyo? i haven't been there in several years but i definitely fell into tourist traps last time and went way over budget. tips on how to save on lodging, public transport, restaurants, SIM/wifi would be amazing

No. 457816

>>457809
Someone else will probably have a lot better advice, but personally I do really well when I give myself a daily budget. The last time I went, I took out enough cash beforehand to give myself $100 per day for food and nonsense spending. Using my card was basically forbidden (difficult to use anyway, I only used it once my entire trip to pay for Disney tickets). That might be a little tight for some people so you can adjust it to what you think is more realistic for yourself, but it helped me take a step back and think about all the trinkets I was about to impulse buy ("would I rather buy this or splurge on dinner tonight?" sort of thought process). It was enough for me and I still had some cash leftover at the end.

As for lodging, I've only ever used airbnb when I travel to Japan. The last time I went, I was with two other friends, so we were able to book a small apartment all to ourselves in a pretty central location for about $300 per person. We ended up not paying that much for transportation since we got lucky and our airbnb was right by the Yamanote line (where most of the places we wanted to go was on). The first time I ever visited Tokyo I made the mistake of booking a super cheap airbnb that was so far out, it cost 1200yen one way to get in/out of the city center lol. Another time (my second time) I was travelling alone so I booked basically what was a little hostel spot near Akiba through airbnb that cost about $240 for a week and a half. It was basically sort of like a capsule hotel with shared amenities in the apartment, but it got the job done and was super cheap so I have no complaints about it. I also like airbnbs because some spots come with pretty good pocket wifi, my latest one that I shared with friends did! Definitely saved me the trouble of having to deal with buying a SIM and whatnot.

Can't offer much help about restaurants but I find that generally they weren't that expensive no matter where we went (then again, we didn't really go to super high end places either lol. We didn't cheap out completely on food either).

Sorry if nothing here is helpful for you! I do hope you have a good time. It's definitely easy to get sucked into the tourist traps and whatnot lol, ufo catchers are a personal weakness of mine.

Does anyone else have no strong feelings/memories attached to their childhood? Every time someone asks about my favorite childhood memory, favorite childhood movie, etc. I don't have anything that comes to mind. I remember irrelevant stuff like playing with my cat as a kid or my school lunches, but there are no meaningful events that come to mind… when I do remember some events that should be emotional, I don't feel anything. It's just something that happened. Is this normal?

No. 458073

Playing with your cat as a kid is probably more meaningful than worshiping some corporate product that increased your dopamine for about 2 seconds. As for the rest of the stuff i think is normal, most memories of my childhood are very matter of fact too and i don't feel strongly any which way about them. My recolections start getting much more subjective at around my teenage years. Stuff from childhood might mean a lot more subconsciously though.

It's probably just to do with sentiment and how people remember things. I have a lot of early childhood memories I can recall with fondness because my homelife from age 12 took a bad turn. I stayed active in school and had a big social circle and got myself involved socially. Went to loads of parties, dated etc but I struggle to recall those memories only a decade later, but memories from childhood like family holidays etc stick far more in my mind. From all the shit I did as a teenager my more vivid memories are being by myself at home on the computer or chilling with my cat lol

Does instagram have some sort of explore page or something for stories? I have a really lowkey account that I don’t post actual posts on, only the occasional story about really uninteresting things, and yesterday and today it shows that I have about 100 people view it when usually it’s only around 70ish (mostly friends, sometimes the occasional nonfollower). I have no idea where these people are coming from. I’ve also seen it where there’s weird uneven view counts, like out of 5 posted stories only the very first and very last have a high amount of views instead of the same/descending amount.

I have no idea why they're watching your stories, the explore feature only showcases hashtagged or viral stories. Is the account new? Instagram suggests new accounts to people to follow.
However the uneven view count is from where someone skips to the next story before fully finishing the one they're watching. This is why very short stories have a high view count and if your stories have a sequence to them, people might watch first story but then just want to skip straight to the last story for a conclusion.

I don’t know how, I’m afraid. I haven’t confirmed properly that I am but there’s no other explanation to dark underarms that I’ve read and my body seems ‘normal’ because my diet is already pretty good - I never drink soda and stopped putting sugar in my tea and coffee which wasn’t too hard because 1)soda is like guzzling syrup to me and 2)I drink less of those because I want to avoid staining my teeth. I don’t keep junk food in the house and only eat ice cream a few times in the summer. None of this was advice to lower my blood sugar, it’s just the way my lifestyle already is.

I've heard so much shit about army stuff and it just doesn't make me feel good. So, stupid question, how should I fee?

Plenty of women have a larger torso and thin arms and legs, so when comparing to them, people will assume someone with thicker limbs carries more weight than they do.
Everything I wear is form-fitting or only slightly loose as a result.
Depending on your skintone you will look more gothic than elven. To look elven you need clothes in browns, greens, wear your hair waved, and silver jewelery.

people make the arwen thing with the light skin and long hair even if you dont look like her tbh so i figure why not go with it? yes, for coverup and i have to battle with unattractive and irritating kp. i meant more like that i would like recommendations on "natural" sneakers and certain dark, minimalist dresses that are a little form fitting, but are more 'natural' and simple. not like, industrial/gothy or sporty, because there's really no natural/delicate and simple, but form fitting stuff that isn't either really alternative or costumey i couldnt find any decent examples quickly for op pic but, just simple stuff that is dark that can look ok with very simple sneakers that look less sporty. ive never heard of a sneaker that was meant to look 'natural' and simple other than maybe eco sneaks? for the dress i meant id prefer form fitting but also not form fitting if possible. realistically it suits the natural aesthetic better to not be form fitting, and i wish i could wear loose stuff, but if you have fat limbs you really cannot

>>459771
i know, it sounds weird, but it's a thing. shes chubby but pic related looks TERRIBLE in loose clothes because her limbs are fat while her stomach is pretty thin in comparison. im sure you can imagine why she'd look bad in loose/unfitted clothing. except unlike her no matter how low i go my limbs stay out of proportion and i retain more fat in my lower limbs, mostly lower arms, lower legs than she does, so it looks much worse. since skinnies are too uncomfortable anyways, really cute looser high waisted 90s jeans with a splaying out at the thickest part of my fat knees and calves and adding more bulk doesnt make me look thinner either

>>459855
omg thank you, exactly!! it's frustrating too because i much prefer the natural, gauzy, flowing, effortless look, but our limbs just can't handle all of the focus to be on them with no emphasis toward the waist and hip. so i'm the same, relegated to wearing form fitting things when that's really not the aesthetic i'm into. even when i'm underweight i still look so off without it. thank you, will take your advice!

Why isn't chinese entertainment more popular? I've never come across a "Chinaboo", despite being the biggest they lose against their east asian neighbours.
C-pop also features girl group and boy group idols, they also have cheesy dramas and variety shows, yet the vast majority of people are only interested in Korea and Japan. One would think that neet girls and guys with yellow fever would also flock to them, but that doesn't seem to be the case…?

A lot of the pop culture from China that'd appeal to the west seems to be derivative of Japan and Korea.

Unfortunately I don't think dresses look good with sneakers at all. It's always gonna end up looking kinda dumpy, especially with something that is form-fitting. >>459753 looks okay-ish but it would have looked actually good with a shoe that is semi-smart like the dress itself.

If you go for a two piece outfit that has waist definition you'll find sneakers go a lot more naturally. Crop tops that show your waist are also an option since you're slimmest there. Shorts always look good with sneakers, they're a natural match. Shorts that are high-cut but with flaring leg holes might work since you seem to describe yourself as heavier in the lower legs? It's like a reverse flare leg jean, might make your lower part look more proportionate by giving your thighs more volume. Not sure but worth trying some outfits right?

Do bangles or shawls flatter you? I like wearing a kimono or cardigan off one shoulder for an asymmetrical flowy look and it helps give my form-fitting outfits some life. As for the bracelet idea I have never used those but they're kinda fun and might make your lower arms seem slimmer since they'd be loose. Like tricking the eye into thinking your arms are so thin the bracelet is moving freely… make sense?

Hope this helped even a little bit.

Yeah, pretty sure it's your salivary glands overloading a bit. Though I get it with sweet fruits, once my jaw swelled up so huge I went to the doctor because I bit into a strawberry and the gland got blocked. It went away really quick and didn't hurt but it was so bizarre.

Thanks anons! I really do like the look of the slinky flowing dresses that have been linked though I did consider a pantsuit too. What are your opinions on the bride wearing black? I'm just not comfortable in white dresses (or light colours in general) for a number of reasons, but I'm worried it'll come off as edgy.

i don't plan to wear white to my wedding either. nothing wrong with that. it's your day anyways, wear the color that you feel comfortable with, anon. and yes, any color can look great for a wedding, either full black or partial or red, just depends on the type of dress and how it's executed imo. congrats and im sure you'll look great in whatever you choose. honestly as long as you don't deck yourself out in gothy or steampunk accessories or go for a "steampunk" or go for designers that are specifically targeting "goths", it won't look tacky or edgy. choose a black dress from a decent designer, imo, rather than subculture designers, their stuff is poorly constructed and it shows

I strongly dislike kids. But for me it's just a set of personality traits that I really dislike, for example loudness, wanting attention, not being able to do stuff on your own, not knowing the unspoken rules of the culture etc.

These grind my gears with adults, but mostly adults have more to them besides these negative traits. Or not, and then I won't like them.

How do you strictly make out with someone? I can never kiss a guy and it just be a kiss. It always leads to neck kisses (my one true weakness) which leads me to go insane as i whip a titty out and coax him to suck it. Which always leads to a guy wanting me to jerk him off. Its worse if I kiss his neck back because then they think that means I should suck their dicks. Its annoying as hell. How do I stop myself from being a horny fuckwad? Is there a pill I can take? Im more so annoyed at the fact that a guy cant just make out with me, suck a little titty without then needing to cum! Like dude its not about you!!

Hate's a strong word. I think most people dislike them rather than genuinely, truly hate them.

I don't hate kids, I just strongly dislike their behavior(ial tendencies) and noisy nature. That's nothing personal against kids, they can't help it and I know that.

Anyway I do think there's a large difference between holding prejudice against kids vs ethnicity/race/gender because kids will grow up, it's not a permanent state of being like your ethnicity/race/gender is.

That's not making out that's straight up foreplay, of course they think you want to fuck it would be like him pulling out half of his ballsack and then getting confused as to why you think he wants blown. Just use your words like a damn adult and say that's as far as you want to go.

-If you are a public figure they could find your address from sites that track that. If you google your name their is a high chance you can find a "X's adress is XXX, phone numebr XX" (Been Verified, Smart Zip and Intelius) type site.
-They can also find you from random articles or legal papers you appeared in. Stuff like "x" went to our collage, snippets from news papers, or friend mentioning you on FB posts.

Also. How do I stay motivated to keep up with things? I have no strength of will, I always forget shit, so I can stick to something maybe for a week at most. It's embarassing at this point. I am in my twenties and I can't just stick with a sleep schedule or using one skincare product.

Thanks! I just… can't figure it out and googling seems even more shameful.
My dad used to wash his hair maybe once a month. It wasn't great. But I thought it was normal.

I have had psychiatric help. I have severe/clinical depression (not sure what the terminology is in other countries, but it's "major depressive disorder" I think?) among other less pressing things, such as a personality disorder and minor psychotic stuff. I've been medicated since I was 13 but it seems I am resistent to it as no drug has ever made me better.
I struggle with motivation and keeping up a lot. Have been all my life, it's extremely hard and it's only gotten worse. But therapy doesn't really help either. I know I should do those things, but I find myself just… not doing them. Silently yelling at myself that I should get up and go pee at least and continuing staring into the wall. Or I just forget to go to sleep. Or forget to eat for a day or two. It's ridiculous. It's fucking bad. I know about the things I should do, I know the reasons I should, but I struggle to just get up and get into it. I can see a point in keeping myself clean and healthy, but I also see zero point in it since I don't feel like I am a person and that I am alive. I just exist. Not doing anything at all. I can't even get myself to watch a movie really for the last couple of years. Fucking miserable existence.
I don't even fucking feel bad about this shit. I'm just numb and I don't care. But I think I should start to try to get myself out of this. And starting by getting used to simple things should probablt help? I guess? I hope so?

I've had a similar story with starting antidepressants at twelve. I was housebound by agoraphobia into my early twenties but even when I knew I was home all the time I made having baths a priority for some reason. It created a bit of a routine, got me out of my room and I got into nice smelling bath/shower products. Helped me feel a bit more human almost, even if I was the only person that noticed I'm clean

If it helps to hear this: personality disorders are typically at their worst in your twenties. I turned 30 last year and after nearly two decades of unrelenting depression I noticed a huge improvement. Mellowing out with age is possible with these disorders

And if you're low on motivation keeping the hygiene routine I recommend giving your teeth first priority, that counts most in the long run

This is good advice.

Treat your washing as an activity you are engaging with, not a chore. Use nice products, get fun clothes ready to change into afterwards.
Brushing teeth is difficult to be fun, so just think about how much more annoying it would be to have cavities and rotten teeth. Brushing is easy compared to that.
You don't have to do it every day. Have an attutude that anything is better than nothing.
You can wash just parts at a time -hair one day, body the next, for example - so it's a smaller task.

Whatever you do that's more often than your current routine is an improvement. If you wash once a week, try once every 5 days instead.

I can relate a lot, I was never explicitly taught much about hygiene and also struggle a lot with depression and complete absence of any motivation whatsoever. What helps me with staying on top of my routines is using daily lists. I keep a bullet journal, not like the meme bullet journals with the fancy overdone calligraphy and stickers and watercolor drawings and shit, but just a really simple weekly layout where I can write what I'm supposed to get done that day.
Having a concrete list of what I should do helps to keep me accountable and getting to cross everything off is satisfying. If I write down "shower" on my daily to do but end up feeling lazy, I kinda guilt myself into doing it anyway because, well, I wrote it down, and it'd be embarrassing to leave the box unchecked, right? I also have a really cloudy shit memory due to depression so having a record of the last time I cleaned something is also useful and a good wake up call.

Good luck anon, it really sucks being so apathetic and numb but even the tiniest things can help. The hardest part is making that first step, everything after just gets easier.

There’s a lot of kimono and yukata rental shops around japan, even outside of tokyo in other touristy cities like Kamakura. Though these shops specialize in pretty much traditional wear of it only, and you can usually have a shoot or walk around the city in it for a set amount of time. You’d have to go to specialized costume place that offers modified kimono for a shoot like this because… that one is showing so much skin it departs from the traditional design so much…. good luck with that.

As in places to go, fucking google it lmao. Even if you’re looking for niche places related to a certain subculture… Google it. Check instagram and twt because most places also advertise through those platforms different events they’re having, etc.

Stupid question but is it weird for me to feel scared of getting diagnosed for a mental illness?

I'm 21 and i know there is something wrong with me emotionally. I know I have anxiety and a form of OCD and something much more severe like ADHD or something and I want to get diagnosed but I'm scared getting put on medicine, my parents and extended family's judgement on me, and even my own worry of how I'll feel knowing there something about me I can't fix.

Been dealing with shit since I was young and my family doesn't believe mental illness is a thing, just a sign of "weakness" (father telling me to get over my anxiety like he got over his depression, my parents never mentioning long lines of anxiety within my family, suicide within the family, my parents saying no one will love me after 2 failed suicide attempts and self harm, etc.)

If it's making you uncomfortable then you definitely need to say something. Trust your gut. It could just be a case of him not wanting to acknowledge that you're already all grown up and not his baby anymore, resulting in him holding onto old habits that are now inappropriate. That doesn't mean that you should let him continue, however. If it is innocent, then as a father he should feel horrified that he is making you uncomfortable in that way. If it isn't innocent, then you need to establish clear boundaries and make sure other people in your family know about them as well. He might get defensive about it at first, but I don't think that's necessarily a sign of ill-intent. If, however, the behavior continues after you tell him, I would get others involved.

You don’t have to tell your family anything. As an adult, your family doesn’t have access to your medical record. If you do get a diagnosis, the doctor’ll want you to start treatment but again as an adult, you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to. Some mental illnesses can be treated with just therapy and lifestyle changes, some mental illnesses can only be alleviated with medication. Do some research, maybe that will help you feel better about whatever your problem is.

Is it weird to be 25 and still hanging out with undergrads? Even if you are an undergrad yourself?

I'm 25 and I'm a senior in university. For various reasons, I had to take a lot of time at school. However, since two years ago at age 23, I've been attending school full time without any interruptions. I go to a residential college where the vast majority of students start school at age 18. Also, it's the default to live on campus.

I felt kind of weird going back to school because I knew I was older than most people. Now I'm definitely the oldest in the room besides the professor. I'm sure there are even a couple of teachers here younger than me. On the other hand, I don't look super old, so it doesn't stick out automatically. I also try not to make a big deal about my age, but I won't lie if someone asks me about it.

In particular, last semester I tried really hard to be active socially. I went to campus parties and camping trips with people way younger than me. I had fun and didn't see a problem hanging out with them.

This semester, I'm studying abroad and my roommates are all 20. The students here are all about the same age too. However, I'm still really interested in joining clubs on campus here and getting to know more local students.

Now I'm reading people my age are too old to be hanging out with undergrad aged people. But what am I supposed to do, live off campus and revolve my social life around other people in the city? It doesn't make a lot of sense to me but I'm curious to know what the alternatives are.

Both of my parents do this or squeeze/pinch my butt and it's literally the least sexy thing I've ever experience in my life. I had a period where I tried to get them to stop because it felt weirdly sexual in my head, but my parents don't want to stop. I saw a movie recently focused on a family that's from the same background as me, and the grandma affectionately pats the main girl's butt, so I think it's just a culture thing. I wish they'd stop because they pinch really hard and it's fucking hurts lmao

I don't think it's really weird. I never had an age gap with my freshmen friends, but I never really thought about how much younger they were than me unless it came up in conversation (like classes they took that I've already taken, birthdays, drinking etc). I always think the people I meet are the same age as me unless I'm told otherwise or they just act really immature. When I'm approaching someone romantically, how young they are definitely matters and makes a big difference in how I interact, but if it's just as friends I don't give a shit. All I care about is that we get along lol.

Happened to me years ago. I was in a fb group about comics, one day I commented something for the first time and the admins noticed me and said I was "hot". In a month I became their "queen", but I'm a pretty reserved person, so being in the spotlight for every little thing I said started getting on my nerves. I got a couple of crazy incels harrassing me and trying to dox me, another one reposted my selfies in the group, I was accused of "attention whoring" for… literally just commenting comic stuff like all of them did. Everytime I commented something and guys started being thirsty, I even tried to turn the attention away. One of the admins reacted like a salty bitch when I politely turned him down and started calling me a whore in the admins' private chat. Other two were passive aggressive as fuck. There was also a teenager girl who absolutely hated my guts because she wanted my spot, and was nasty to me for no reason all the time.
In the end I stopped posting and disappeared. A couple of months ago someone from the group tagged me asking where had I gone, but I didn't reply.
The bright side is that they weren't all assholes, I made some very good friends I still talk to and meet irl. But yeah, being the "queen bee" of a group of online guys means being just the girl they desperately want to fuck, and will turn sour the moment you don't.

I just kept the card open so that my overall credit limit looks high/utilization looks lower but I've never used it out of sheer anger that the employee was so fucking aggressive in getting me to sign up for it lol. I was talking to coworkers about it and one of them said I'm basically committing identity theft and should cancel it.

Honestly as someone who's worked as a professional high-end tailor for years now this statement alone sends up red flags to me. What are you seeking a "seamstress" for? This is too vague. Tailoring? Garment construction? Design? Upholstery? Menswear? Womenswear? Embroidery? There's a million different areas of sewing and expertise. If you can narrow down what you're looking for it will be easier. Most of us have more experience in one area than another – for example my area is womenswear and bridal/formal dresses. I've worked on >$20,000 wedding dresses but I wouldn't touch menswear with a 50 ft pole (outside of pant hems) and I honestly hate garment construction. If I had to I COULD figure it out, but I don't want to and would happily point you in the direction of someone who has more expertise. I doubt it's that difficult to find a seamstress who can do what you want, but you need to be realistic about your expectations and what it will cost. If you want things custom made, it costs money.

how do people fall for this? I never feel bad about saying "no" over and over to all the tricky ways they form the question to sign you up without real consent. not even trying to sound edgy but I really don't care about their quota. I've only seen boys fall for it when its a pushy female cashier.

I think even if you meet the perfect person you need to be emotionally stable enough to hold on to them.
I genuinely believe my boyfriend is golden standard boyfriend material, at least for me. Of course your feelings mellow out after being with someone after several years but we still leave each other cute notes and put each other first, he finds a way to make me smile every day and I still enjoy the comfort of just making a meal with him. I can't believe that just by chance I managed to meet someone that I'm attracted to in all ways feels the same way about me.

However I'm a fucking insane bitch who will probably leave him eventually because I have to think up fictional reasons to ruin everything good in my life, I already hate the fictional lucky bitch that will marry him because I don't know why anyone else wouldn't. It doesn't matter how perfect someone is for you if you're the kind of person that doesn't let themselves accept happiness. I've seen awfully unmatched couples who are happy being together because they have decided that's their eternal love story.

That is absolutely not her real hair. First suspicion can be that 'too good to be real look' but when you break it down, you can notice that the only part of her scalp that shows is on top. She's wearing a weave. The tracks are covered by clever hair folding.

Honestly doing acid for the first time at a party sounds like a bad idea. With drugs that aren't psychedelics all I'd advise you is make sure the stuff is legit and you don't take too much, but acid (and shrooms and the like) are another matter completely.
You don't know how it'll hit you and ideally you'll want to first do it in a calm, familiar environment with someone you trust keeping an eye on you. I've done acid many times but even I would have a pretty big chance of having a bad experience if I'd do it at a party in a chaotic environment with people I barely know.

So if you feel really comfortable and want to try it no matter what you should make that decision for yourself, but know that with acid you could have a very bad time if you're not prepared.

Relationships are about compromise but you can't change someone. As long as he's not forcing you to do all his hobbies then he shouldn't have to enjoy yours.
I don't get why you can't just talk to him about why films/TV are important to you and ask for a compromise eg you can join in with one of his hobbies and in return you guys can both watch a series, maybe a spooky one. If you can't both make a compromise without insulting each other's hobbies then I don't get why you want to with him.

if I'm completely honest I find women who don't ever wear makeup to be either unkempt and/or socially retarded.
Girls who don't wear makeup are always the ones who wear boring hoodies or outdated clothing and look like they've just rolled out of bed. They almost always have no interests in current trendy media and are a bit behind. Every single girl I've met who don't wear makeup end up giving me "I was homeschooled" vibes.
Not wearing makeup isn't bad but I just find that most people who never wear it are a bit socially inept/behind the times. Oof I know this sounds awful but it really is true.

fast forward ten years and sure enough, he trooned out. too bad, he had a big dick and loved to eat pussy. i consider myself lucky that i wasn't a tranny widow. he dumped the girl he was seeing as soon as he stared taking e. i'm also glad he didn't reproduce. nowadays, you see a dude fucking around with your lingerie, that fucker is ready to troon and you should ditch his mental ass. imo.

This is most definitely a stupid question but I need to ask it anyway:
Is it weird and creepy for a 22 year old guy to talk to a 17 year old girl?
I think it is but I need to hear some reaffirmations. I don't see what business a senior college student would have with a highschooler, even if they're just friends. This guy talks friendly and jokingly with this girl and he's told me about her, they talk I'm guessing often enough since he has her added on instagram now. I can't find any way to say it's wrong without just saying it "feels weird". And then there's the matter of maturity, where sure, some highschoolers can be mature, but there's such a dramatic difference between those two ages since people change and grow a lot during those years. I don't know if my thoughts are correct or on the right path, so if someone could share their two-cents I'd appreciate it.

I had one who mentioned that he would want to dress up in a stereotypical sexy maid dress and once hinted at watching trans porn. I was a bit aware about AGP but this didn't really strike me as that much at the time. He was also super hardcore into vidya especially old ones. I'm not sure if that's enough to qualify or fit the usual profile but in retrospect I'm glad I at least don't have to deal with the possibility.

Speed readimg isn't really speed reading, its pretty much just skimming. Like you learn to pay attention to important words and ignore less important ones. Reading out loud could maybe help you. I also like taking notes, but I struggle more with comprehension than with speed.

That being said, it still might be worth it to learn to speed read. Also dont forget about audio books, there are lots of free ones on YouTube.

A good pro-tip for speed reading is that if you sub-vocalize (e.g. imagining a voice reading it in your head, most people seem to do this since most people are taught to read by reading aloud first) train yourself not to, so you're just absorbing the information directly and not doing it at the speed you would if you were reading it out loud and wasting focus on remembering how to pronounce certain words and such.

I had a job interview on Monday for a job at a grocery store and was offered the job on the spot (I assume this because I was made to sign a bunch of papers including a consent form for a background check). I was told the background check would take 3-5 days and then they would bring me in for training.
I called the manager on Saturday to ask how the background check was going since it had been 5 days already and I was told that there was a “blip in the system” and that it would take a little longer for it to be completed. This is a real thing that happens, right? For some reason I feel like he could’ve just been saying that and I didn’t really get the job.

Try not to overthink it. It's far more likely that they got delayed sending in your check or there was some sort of error, just make sure to follow up. Like >>464803 said grocery stores can't really afford to ghost new hires.

Actually that does remind me, a few years ago I was ghosted by a sportswear store even after going to several interviews, formally accepting the job offer and having them take all my personal information (including SSN and bank details for payroll). They never scheduled my first shift and every time I called I was told the GM was "busy" and he would call back later. After a few weeks of trying to get ahold of him I just gave up. It was weird, but I don't think it's a common occurrence!

Do I buy too much stuff? I feel really guilty about the amount of money I’m spending and wondering if I have a problem with consumerism, but I’m not sure if I just feel overly guilty bc I grew up impoverished.

Every few months I spend between $30-100 on art or planner stuff and often times the things I buy don’t get used even once for another few months. A lot of them I buy at the time because I know I want them (I struggle to make time for art) and they’re on sale, or like something I found at a recycled art supply store that you won’t be able to get later.

I also collect toys and I don’t even know how much per year I spend on them. I’ve slowed down recently since I stopped checking eBay and I’m nowhere near the amount of toys a lot of collectors have, but idk. I really love them, though.

Do any anons here work in a grocery store chain and would be willing to share tips/details/stories?

I've been working on my mental health and looking forward to trying to get a job for the first time. The only place I think would hire me within walking distance is a large grocery store.

No. 465479

Big box grocery store slave reporting in, literally don't worry about shit pertaining to the job itself, all you do is endless bad unboxing essentially and as long as you can read shelf edge labels to know where shit is supposed to go you'll be golden and above good 60% of employees. Most of my colleagues are post menopausal ladies and equally elderly men so if they can learn the job (and even how the handsets and online payslips work!), so can you with all your youth and endless potential etc!

The only actually important task you will have is finding out who the "important" colleagues are, as you want to get on their good side, and and how to get on the said good side. This is my 1st workplace as well (3 years in october lol) so I was also very scared and anxious (would go home crying every day in the first 2 months bc I'm a stress crier ok), however, not to like brag or anything, but I'm everyone's fav and get treated really nicely as such.

How I achieved this I do not exactly recommend as I was basically working really fast and good, often managing to do what 2 or 3 people would normally be tasked with, which earned the respect of the elderly lady council as they like hardworking girls, but also made them "adopt me" as they did not want the male managers exploiting my naivete and hardworking tendencies lol. At the same time this obviously made the managers like me as yeah, they could exploit me to their hearts content (also one of them is like a uni dropout and likes to think of himself as a deep thotful individual and I like humouring that). In the last year or two I have slowly gotten lazier down to everyone else's level but bc of my initial reputation, I am still regarded the same as previously. So maybe do try working hard but not too hard. Again, it is kinda a bullshit job anyone can do so you should have no problem with that aspect.

You do not have to know where everything goes down to the specific shelf, just try noticing the underlying organisation in aisles, like to know where brand xyz paracetamol is, all you have to know is where medicines aisle is, then which bay is for pain relief and that's it (seems easy and logical but I think grocery stores are the biggest employer of near illiterate sub 60 IQ people). Do not touch the shrink wrap itself when wrapping a cage as you will get hit with static electricity. If you have to use handsets yet no one checks you turning them back in, hide yours around the shop floor to guarantee you'll get one at the start of the shift (not applicable if you actually have more than 10 handsets in the entire building), same with other supplies tbh, my biggest pride is my private plastic bag stash. If you have those metal cord tags for alcohol as opposed to cages or stickers or whatever, it is easier and quicker to put them on if you move the plastic bobble around instead of trying to pull the cord thru; additionally, if you have all the tags facing one way it is easier to put shit on shelves and it looks neater too.

If your colleagues skew more young or you want to go for a checkouts staff position I'm out of advice soz. If they have spots for job in security or clothes department, try going for those as they're both the easiest departments imo. Avoid frozen and fresh as they are either cold and wet and miserable or smell bad or both. Possibly avoid pet aisles too bc they have so many beasties lurking about and you'll just smell like value dog food.

I don't know enough about the context to be sure in any way but rather than being a "traditional" pedophile I feel like it might have been more of a Peter Pan complex type of thing where he idealized childhood and the curiosity and innocence of children. The fascination with children beyond feeling attracted to them is what makes me think this.
I'd almost say it's kind of a Michael Jackson type thing, having a complex about not properly experiencing your own childhood, but theories about MJ are obviously very disputed.

They think lifting and cutting/bulking is the height of difficulty. Legit body building is hard and takes discipline, don't get me wrong, but at least they can achieve a decently muscular, (if not adonis tier), conventionally attractive physique without restricting to 1200 calories like women who aren't allowed any excess fat at all. Our diets are severely limited and wr still have to lift so we dont horrify men with a flat ass. Every part of our body is judged more harshly than theirs, usually to standards we can never reach without surgery (huge boobs and ass with a tiny waist).

Men are delusional if they think anyone expects them to look like greek gods. All they need is muscled shoulders/arms and no beer belly and they're gold. They can do that eating 5x a woman's daily intake in mcdonalds every day as long as they lift a few times a week. Hell, they can even stay stick thin on a diet like that and be considered hot.

I work at a big box retailer, but in checkout/guest service. I felt the same way as you when I started a month and a half ago (also my first real job). Customers will be understanding if you admit you are new if they have a question you can't help them with. Don't hesitate to call over your supervisor if a guest says LEMME SPEAK TO YOUR MANAGER. Also what >>465479 said about working hard at first is pretty spot-on. Within my first two weeks I had two different guests compliment me by name to my leadership because I didn't know how attentive I needed to be while ringing people up and was being practically subservient. I haven't had any guest compliments since but it definitely stuck in my team leads minds. Asking too many questions is better than assuming things and subsequently making mistakes.

Also, if I can give you examples of mistakes I make, one is that I'm not familiar with the store I work at. It's pretty embarrassing when my store has hand scanners where I can literally find the exact aisle of a product a guest asks for and then can't point them in the right direction because I never leave the front of the store and don't know where anything is. Just walk around the store a few times/start shopping there.

Also idk if this will apply to you but if you have security at your store and they ask you to customer service a shoplifter – just do it. It's kind of spooky especially if you're a non-confrontational person but it's not that hard since you don't actually have to accuse them of anything usually, and if you're successful you'll get on their good side.

Good luck anon, soon things will be familiar and it'll feel pretty good tbh. I mean it'll bullshit because you'll be at work lol but it'll be a comfortable kind of bullshit.

Something about that website turns its users into virtually the same person with all the same likes and opinions. For example, they hate women, feminism, minorities, LGBT, poor people, fat people, diversity, protestors, and vegans. False rape accusations are a pressing existential threat. They're obsessed with going after the easily-debunked targets like antivax, flat earth, or MLM. Pedophiles are actually just misunderstood and deserve our sympathy. Their favourite books are 1984, Brave New World, Fahrenheit 451, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Brandon Sanderson, and Stephen King. Serious literary analysis is pretentious and bullshit their English teacher made up. STEM is good and humanities (or god forbid gender studies) is bad.

You don't even need to read the subreddits anymore because you already know what they're going to be talking about and what their opinion on it is. I don't think users start out with these opinions, it's just that something in the way the site is designed causes them to get sucked into these circlejerks and morph into the same person. It's probably the upvote system which rewards groupthink and also users gullibility and lack of critical thinking when it comes to incorrect/debunked, fake and out-of-context posts.

I feel like when researchers study this more they're going to find out the internet rewires the brain more than they expect and will effect some deeper evolutionary processes of humanity than we'd like to see, and also that it works more like a drug in how it rewires people, not like a productive or natural thing.

Just because a chubby cat isn't or doesn't seem to be experiencing any direct consequences for it's weight at this moment in time, doesn't mean it isn't unhealthy.

Anyway I'm not necessarily hating on fat cat pictures, but there's definitely a growing agreement online that it's completely okay for a pet to be very very heavy, or for it's owner to consistently overfeed it and that's not a good thing. Innocent fat cat pictures don't help there.

If you actually lurk more you'll see most of thsoe cats are well taken care off and are not morbidly obese, some cats are also naturally more chubby and fluffier than others and those who are on the heavier end usually have a backstory, like they were adopted and are being put on diets, those subs are not the fattening contest some people make it out to be and no one is bragging or condoning abuse.

Bunnies are so pure and sweet. They will require specific diets because their tummies are rather sensitive. They need love and most do best with a partner.

You have to understand what's normal behavior for your bun because they hide any signs of pain. Buns are kind of fragile, but they're 100% worth all of the work.

The answer to the bonding/watching tv aspect is yes that can definitely happen, but personalities may differ. They're just as lovey as dogs or cats, but I have to mention that since they're prey animals, they are generally more skittish. However, my bun has zero fear around others and loves cuddling and being social.. I think it's the holland lop in her. But overall their personalities vary. Also, shelter buns may open up and be totally different after getting comfy in your home, just like dogs or cats.

I can't tell if you're asking because you want to form such bond but don't know if the other person wants it too, or are you asking in general because you're confused with someone's intentions? Anyway
I would say that emotional connection is formed when people are emotionally invested in your life. You'll recognize that by them being interested in how you're doing, what's going on, checking up on you, emotional and empathetic response to stuff going on in your life… Basically, caring. A superficial friendship without an emotional bond is hanging out just out boredom, spending time together only at uni/work, talking mainly gossip or current events, or just venting and complaining. If you want to get closer to someone, just be there for them, act more attentive, spend quality time together. So if a person does that - cares about you, chooses to spend their free time with you - they want to get closer

Adult shelter buns have a ton of postives.

1. Pairs are already bonded. Bonding bunnies is a very intense process that can potentially take weeks, and even then it might never work. You have to keep them separated through the process.

2. They're already spayed/neutered. Generally, babies have to be 6 months old to get altered, which is a surgery that costs hundreds. Having them altered is recommended for both genders as it reduces aggressive behaviors and prevents cancers.

3. They're likely already litter trained, which can be a process with a baby. Also, babies will pee on you a lot more, and be more messy and destructive and hormonal in general.


I've had my bunny since she was 4 months old until now (1.5 years) and she has had the same personality since I met her. The only difference is that she's a lot less messy and a lot less crazy. In her baby days, before her spay, she would want to pee on my chair and I'd have to clean it a lot, which drove me nuts. I also had to litter train her and that was a whole process. I think in a way, their personalities are not really something you can influence, but rather it's just genetic. Overall, age doesn't matter so much and adult buns will be a lot less work and time. But if you wanna teach your buns tricks or something, maybe a baby would be better.

Lastly, I forgot to mention–an x-pen is loads better than a cage. I mentioned cleaning a cage earlier and that was a mistake. I free roam her but she stays in the pen when I'm gone or asleep. Also, she licks me everyday and it's basically her form of kisses. It's so sweet. She'll also do that thing cats do, where they go on your laptop keyboard to catch your attention.

Help. Someone tried to get into my paypal and successfully got into my bank account (not the one associated to my paypal though), they couldn't take any money but they ended up getting all of my accounts locked.

The attacker seemed to have all of my passwords for my bank and paypal (they're all different). And the only thing that stopped them was phone verification.

For the way paypal automatically blocked them out i guess the attack came from a different country or from someone using a vpn.

This is true actually, you're wayyy more likely to find dumb elitist snobs in indie/alternative/rock communities shoving their taste in your face acting like they're superior than in Rnb communities who just love the music. Of course they can start their own drama but it's definitely not pushed to the foreground like others.
In my experience music fans CAN be chill, but they can be extremely annoying too. I find it better to just communicate with fans of a specific artist than interact with a whole group of "music lovers" who only sperge about the same 5 bands over and over again.

I posted too early, but if you go look at the current /meta/ complaints thread alone, you can find the word "radfem" 195 times. Of those 195 mentions, 100+ are farmers asking for moderation to stop their infestation of other boards. That is from only the CURRENT complaints thread. The previous thread has 50 mentions of radfems, and 50+ mentions of other terms to describe those spergs. Radfems pretending that they're being ousted all of a sudden is such a joke, there are literally over A HUNDRED complaints about them infesting and spilling over to threads. I am so fucking tired of their retarded version of events, they got told by farmhands and other farmers close to a hundred times and they never bothered to listen. Then they act surprised and sperg even more when eventually they're removed through a final solution.

The only reason they got eradicated is because they didn't understand what a containment thread is and would go on autistic tirades every time someone who wouldn't go out of their way to call transpeople TROONS KILLING WOMEN, even if the discussion at hand nothing to do with gender politics.

Both music and games are such a vast umbrella that it is hard to generalize.

I would say that people focused on the creative aspects of it are going to be way more chill, there are huge difference with musicians hanging and collaborating with other musicians than fans engaging with other fans within a fandom. In my experience actual musicians are super nice to each other and act really appreciative of the venues and events when they get to hang out with each other but in games you get a similar vibe around the modding communities or Game Jams or just context where its mostly the developers themselves. The nintenboys are just fandom spergs and you can't expect the same good vibes and creative atmosphere from manchilds and literal 12 yr old gamer kids that you would expect from people who engage with the medium as creators, just as you can't expect it from a hipster music fan or a edgy metal fan who are in it for the niche and the social scene and not for the medium in general.

Jazz is one of those genres were a lot of the fans are musicians themselves, is kinda music from musicians for musicians and it doesn't pull big crowds so you can expect jazz events to be pretty chill and less drama ridden than the alternative scene where its mostly teenagers sperging and trying to one up each other in clout points.

Related to previous posts I have question for anons that are anti Pink Pill/GC/RadFem threads.
The question is why exactly?
As someone that rarely posts there and even lurks, I just never saw any issues with those threads and very rarely saw it getting out of hand in other threads. Besides, you can always hide threads.

So, why? What makes a girl/woman hate anything related to venting about men specifically, discussing issues on gender and feminism?

Going to be super optimistic here and assume this isn't bait.

First off, you sound like a judgemental cunt, even by LCF standards. You're seriously reading all this shit into people's personalities based solely on the fact that they don't wear makeup? I was legitimately shocked when you said you were an adult, because you sound like a middle-schooler. Get therapy.

Cosmo can say whatever they want- the hard science says women who wear makeup every day have lower self-esteem. So the women you think you're so much better than are probably actually happier and better adjusted, because they don't rely on makeup as a security blanket. Plus their skin is probably going to age better.

I wear makeup about 1/3 of the time, and the people I judge aren't the ones who don't wear it or who only wear some. I'm judging the kind of dumb hoes who show up to the pool or the gym with falsies and 20 different products.

I remember watching a video about facebook moderators, people who get paid to delete cp and animal abuse and terrorist material from the site from home.

My friend works in criminal justice as an attorney and he has seen some horrid shit, like video and photo evidence in child porn/sexual abuse cases. He described some of it to me once and it was too awful for words, but he also told me that you just sort of detach from yourself and treat it as something you just have to do. It's like how pathologists leave their emotions at the door when they have to define the cause of death for a half rotten corpse and treat it as an object instead of the sad remains of a human being, possibly a victim of a violent crime. You can't take it personally or humanize the subject too much or it starts taking a real toll on your mental health. It's just something you learn as you do it I guess. That's also why doctors aren't supposed to become too attached to their patients or it will cloud their sense of reason too much.

Just. Stop. You have to realize how hard it is for a police officer to go through thousands of pictures and videos of child abuse to crop out the faces of the victims and suspects in order for them to identify them and to gather evidence for the trial, and then on top of it people claim that they're "closet pedophiles who get a kick out of it lol".

Realizing the harmful effects of collectivism and bad economic policy is paramount to women interests, what you are shilling is slavery with progressive code words and a fools trap for women to go against their own best interest.

Is there a way to clean handbag hardware so it's silver instead of gold?
I've googled and googled and maybe I am doing something wrong due to a language barrier, but.
I have a cute handbag and I am pretty sure that the hardware is made of a silver-ish metal that is only plated/painted gold. I would like to strip that gold layer. How do I go about it?
There is plenty of advice on removing actual jewelry gold plating or actual household paint from metal, but that's of course not it. I am not even sure what "it" is and how it's properly called and how it's done and whatnot.
Is there like, some specific terms I am supposed to be looking up?
I know this is a really specific and fairly obscure question, but hell, at this point if you can guide me towards the place where I should ask it, it would be really appreciated too.

Seems like you can't remove it, so I would look into ways to paint over it instead. The second person who replied to that offered a way to do it with silver leaf

https://stunningstyle.com/style-secrets/2018-3-16-how-to-paint-zippers-buttons-hardware-and-accessories

This person apparently does it with thinned out nail polish.

When you're searching for more info use the terms "gold tone" and "silver tone" hardware instead of just gold and silver, that will help you find info that's more relevant because then the articles will not be about literal gold and silver

Search "change gold tone hardware to silver tone" rather than "remove gold tone" since it probably can't be 'removed' only covered

You sound really afraid of reading anything outside the austrian school. I get it, I used to pride myself on being ~a classical liberal~ too and I still love me some Schumpeter but if you think economics can be truly, robustly understood without reference to women's specific experiences (and crucially, as analyzed and written about women), you're a weak ass economist. Don't be so afraid to study anything but Mises, Hayek, Friedman–it's all very calm and beautiful in that world where creative destruction takes care of everything and decentralized power solves all problems and everyone who disagrees is just a weak-minded baby terrified of the free exchange of ideas, but it's a lot fucking lazier than actually spending some time with Dworkin or MacKinnon and realizing the Austrians seemed to have everything figured out because they purposefully ignored the messier biases of the human animal.

Thanks for giving me a reason to use my econ, degree, anon. And reminding me how much easier it was to believe Hayek had all the answers.

I really don't know what to do but it's eating me from the inside.
So a childhood friend of mine who I haven't seen in ages since elementary moved into my neighborhood. We've started hanging out together and I enjoy her company. It's been only recently that I've met her husband and I've recognized him from before since he has interesting facial features.
Anyhow, I've met him in a bar in a nearby town and while nothing happened, we were flirting, he put his hand on my thigh, and he wasn't wearing a ring because I pay attention to that. A married man is off limits to me and an instant ignore. So nothing sexual happened as I wasn't in the mood but I got the impression that if I pushed it that something could have happened.

And I know he recognized me too. However, since nothing happened I don't want to say anything but I still feel guilty. They have a kid too, a recent newborn. But he wasn't cheating right? It's not like we did something?

The post in the confessions thread made me think about my own habits because I pick my skin a ton. I can't help it, it's like a sneeze. I pick pimples and ingrown hairs and everything. I'm also extremely prone to neurosis, I get seemingly absurd thoughts in my head that I can't get rid of. Like the classic did I leave the stove on, I might not be able to think about it for the whole day and sinking deeper and deeper into the panic and can't concentrate on anything else which really interferes with my work. I have to resist the temptation to call someone to check my stove. I'm socially anxious to a fault and get panic attacks sometimes, I overthink interactions with people all the time. Is this a sign of OCD or just general anxiety? I've lived like this for so long that it all seems like a normal routine to me and I never stopped to think about that maybe other people aren't as fucking nuts.

No. 468835

I have the same, I always pick my ingrown hairs/pimples, have intrusive thoughts and have to touch several things 4x in a row to feel peace. Leaving the house also is hard for me because of the stove etc. It is interesting because I never saw the connection between how I I treat my body and my weird obsessions, but it probably makes sense. I don’t know what exactly it is, but I was only diagnosed with general anxiety. I told my psychiatrist about my behavior and he just asked me if I suffer from it. I don’t, because I have been like this since I was a child and it is normal to me. He said I should sometimes try to not give in the urge of my ticks, which is pretty difficult, but I do try it a bit every now and then. I think I would feel more relaxed without my ticks, but I don’t really know what to do. Probably just not give in a lot, but that is really hard!

No. 468845

it depends on why you're doing it. i have OCD and do certain weird things like eat pieces of snack foods in pairs, but my stress ticks like picking scabs when i am nervous, and they are more related to anxiety so i think they are possible without OCD. anon in the confessions thread seems OCD because of how she described her methodology.

I noticed in random American TV shows where you sometimes get to see the inside of people's houses I often see paper plates? Is that a common thing? Why not just get a cheap set of dishes and just rewash that? Does it have something to do with water or laziness? So many questions..

No. 468872

I don’t think many people use paper plates that often— mostly for when there’s large quantities of guests/informal dining, like eating on the back patio or something. Most people use real plates quite regularly, the only family I can think of offhand that doesn’t is my friend who has a brother with autism, in which cleanup is easier for him if he can just throw it out.

So I had an extremely late period that started around the 28th and ended around yesterday morning or monday night. Lots of spotting, some red blood but not at all like a usual period. Pregnancy tests came back negative, and I doubt I could be pregnant because I had unprotected sex while my period was already late and there is little chance I ovulated at all during that time. Now I feel crampy and fatigued, does anyone know if this is a symptom of something like PCOS or cysts or polyps?

I think some act as natural insect repellents, like peppermint. Peppermint is also a pretty good stimulant for some people because the smell of menthol wakes them up and I'd assume it's nice if you're congested. Same with eucalyptus. My ex was Australian and I guess some people there use a humidifier with eucalyptus oil when they have sinus infections.
A lot of it is woo or YMMV but won't hurt you if used responsibly. I make a gentle cleaner with vinegar and add orange oil to make it smell a bit better, sometimes I add a drop of oil to my laundry detergent to make it smell nice. I also use tea tree oil on pimples like you do. I've heard it's good for the scalp if you have dandruff. Be careful applying oils if your skin is sensitive because essential oils are irritating and need to be diluted!

Anon, I would be devastated by this if I were your friend. She will react very badly, but if you can get it across to her that you didn't know it was her husband and he wasn't wearing a ring, I think it's the right thing to do. You have to decide what matters to you morally/emotionally and how you think she will react. She may want to believe him over you because he is her husband. It sounds like he may do this often and even if not, she deserves to know. How horrible that she has his child and he treats her like that. She should have the knowledge of what he's like so she can call him out and leave…assuming she believes you.

Depends on how advanced the cancer is and if it has spread, but yes, you can opt for mastectomy instead of, say, a lumpectomy (which attempts to preserve most of the breast tissue). However you'd still probably need chemo or radiation. IIRC you can get also get a mastectomy to prevent breast cancer if you have a certain gene mutation or you're at sufficiently high risk, and it can reduce the odds of getting it by almost 100%.
