I hosted a swap meet yesterday and this girl in my comm I fucking hate showed up uninvited. She bought the wrist cuffs I wanted while I was busy doing organiser things.

I sold most of my sweet Lolita stuff and only keep more simplistic Otome/soft Lolita/whateveryoucallitthesedays items.
I was so happy looking at these dresses but I could never bring myself to wear those sweet items casually outside conventions. I just never felt comfortable. Now that I finally made the decision to transition into more simple, casual items I'm much more happy and wear it regulary. Some people may say my outfits are too simple now to be called Lolita but you know what? I don't care, I don't need a name for what I wear, I'm just happy to feel beautiful and comfortable in my dresses.

If you're smoking weed right, no one knows at all. You're just the hungriest person at the party, and when you're surrounded by other fat lolitas, no one can really tell. Probably just include maybe 1 or 2 other chill people, but don't tell everyone.

I didn't really cosplay with other people until recently (just did my own thing and was fun) but I never thought I'd be the type to feel bitter or jelly when my friend gets pulled for pics by people and not me (even though we were a pair of characters from the same series together doing a paid shoot). And I honestly don't think there's a huge power gap between us, it just makes me wonder about how seem people have "it" and others don't. Otoh my friends are generally younger too so I never let any of this escape me because how embarrassing would that be.

Men have been known to leave cameras in women's restrooms to record them using the toilet. It's really gross actually.

>> No.10291847 [DELETED] 


Men who dress as women for fun to take advantage of the rights real trans women deserve to go somewhere they shouldn't to "get off" or feel excited are disgusting and if a guy got turned on by watching me do something mundane like wash my hands I'd be real fuckin' uncomfortable. The forced sexualization of anything female by some men who see women only as sex objects in dangerous and disgusting/offputting.

Real trans women in bathrooms are fine; men who get excited and post online about sneaking into female only spaces in "trap mode" are different than trans women and if they aren't just making it up they're fucking perverted scrotes and honestly can just die.

Honestly unisex bathrooms are fine too if stall doors had better coverage in America the way they do in Japan. The thought of some man or even a male kid peeping under the stall because they either don't know any better or in the case of an adult do and don't care is gross and uncomfortable.

>> No.10291848

This is the reason why women are so terrified of men and what men don’t get, and why women are so afraid of trans women in a way men don’t have to be afraid if trans men. Women would never do something this repulsive.

>> No.10291849

If you think the last part doesn’t already happen when moms bring their small sons into ladies’ restrooms, think again. I get it, they can’t just leave their kid alone outside or send them in the mens’ alone, but then, they need to watch them before they grow up to be perverts.

>> No.10291854 [DELETED] 


It does happen but moms can send kids into the men's alone at a certain age and just wait outside the door to make sure they come out safe, and for the women's room if the kid is the one using the restroom the mom is there, if it's the mom, she can keep the kid in the stall or teach him not to let his curiosity inconvenience other people.

That's also why full coverage stall doors like in other countries would be ideal.

A rando dude supporter doesn't have a chance with a costhot so it's not like you'd ever cheat with the person but I can see why she'd be insecure or bothered by you spending money on their patreon, at least the ones that are ethots. If they're regular cosplayers then it doesn't seem fair to make you stop helping contribute to them.

Is she pretty jealous usually or is she only bothered by this in particular? Does she like cosplay? Maybe you can tell her you'd like it if as a nice gesture she could cosplay with you or for you? Seems like a complicated situation.

>> No.10292012


Idk I'm female and I think getting mad at a partner for buying what is essentially softcore porn is silly (but the person in question is a retard for actually spending money on spank material, who tf pays for porn anymore?)

It's understandable why she'd be bothered or uncomfortable but demanding you delete stuff you spent money on when it's not hurting you or her to have it is a bit odd. Asking you to stop supporting them makes sense if it's all lewds desu cause it is wasting money.

You kinda need to give more info about whose patrons and other details to convince me one way or the other.

>> No.10292013

Its kinda weird to be giving money to lewd cosplayers and porn when youre in a relationship. Maybe use that money to support your gf instead. With the images you already have, just hide them better, but don't be suprised if when she finds them again she gets upset and feels lied to. I get that it seems unreasonable, but sometimes relationships come with compromises. How important is this girl to you? Is porn more important? If it is, then you probably shouldn't have a girlfriend.

All I'm getting from this is that you value your wank material more than your girlfriend's feelings. Which I guess is fine, but you should tell her so she can decide on whether to break up with you or nor

>> No.10292031


The fact that your reasons for her not needing to be jealous are that the girls wouldn't be interested in you VS you being happy with your gf and not interested in them seems to be the cause of the jealousy right there.

A lot of girls are insecure and if she hears you say that she may overanalyze and think "oh, so if you DID have a chance with an ethot you WOULD leave me for them/cheat?".

Finding other girls pretty isn't illegal in a relationship but the implication that the only reason you're not going to leave her or cheat with anyone is that you don't have the chance to and not that you're content with your relationship suggests she has a good reason to feel insecure.

Not saying that is how you feel but it could be interpreted that way from your wording and as someone who used to be insecure in that way I can see where she'd be upset.

You guys should probably have a deeper discussion about this and compromise somehow and if you're unwilling to then a breakup is the next best option.

I get a lot of people upset with me when I make my stance. I'd be okay with porn, in theory, in some alternate universe, but as it stands? Nope.

Any images/videos made with the intent to cause arousal or sexual gratification are porn. And while they might be getting the money directly, it's part of a larger problem altogether, and a lot of them reinforce some of the worst parts of the porn industry, like incest or underage fetishes. And it isn't empowering. I sure as fuck don't feel empowered knowing men jerk off to women dressed as school girls and that there are women happy and naive enough to provide this for them.

(ayrt) Loose skin unfortunately comes with major weight loss, anon..But you can always try to get it removed. I believe some insurance covers it? Not positive however. Besides; the loose skin may not be pretty, but it's a testament to your effort and willpower to have lost the weight! I'm very proud of you for that. As for bone structure, I feel that. My shoulders have always been wide for a woman as well, and it's true there's not much we can do about it.

Of course some men stop watching porn if a girl forces them to (and they resent her for it) or if they have become addicted. Not because they think it's oppressive to women or some shit. Porn is a natural inclination for men that they have been creating for centuries, previously in the form of little paper books and wood blocks. You need to come to terms with it.

Porn can be literary too, you know. If you are against the mistreatment of women in the sex industry then okay, but don't smash the pot for being cracked. Consuming porn isn't bad nor unnatural. I would say it's natural for women to consume porn too, as women too have sexual urges, if only society hasn't cautioned them against it.

>> No.10292462

I'm not young at all. I know plenty, enough to know that not every man on earth watches porn, which is apparently more than you do. And I've also managed to date a man who doesn't hide things for me, which is also more than you can say.

I've already said that in another world, I'd be okay with the existence of porn. I'm not against the idea in theory, but what we have right now is a disgusting mess that abuses women, encourages negative stereotypes and a lack of boundaries and consent, and normalizes things like pedophilia and incest. Because of this, there's no way to create porn in a vacuum, and all of it reinforces this industry and ideas.

men's rationale

Women's rationale
>women who fuck dudes for money are victims and I hate seeing young girls because they make me feel bad. Incest is wrong because it's wrong but homosexuality is fine because well... like... uhh.... shut up, bigot.

If you still give your partner plenty of attention then I don't see a problem with it. If she can't handle knowing you have lewds and favorite models, even if you don't leave them laying around, well, it's not a good fit because it forces you to sneak around and lie to her.

No it doesn't, men don't care who porn hurts, they are coomers. Obviously women who aren't braindead cumbrain lib fems would also be aware of how porn hurts the consumers.

>> No.10292532

Like I said, don’t smash a pot because it’s cracked. You would think that the solution to the porn industry being shit is to work towards fixing the industry standards, rather than trying to eliminate porn entirely. I believe ethical porn can exist, and that porn in itself is healthy and necessary for safe sexual exploration.

If you’re against certain fetishes, then I would argue that it’s a chicken-egg dilemma. Things like interest in noncon, incest and underaged women can occur prior to/without the consumption of porn. (Seeing as such acts/relationships can be depicted in non-pornographic and are rather prominent in the media for its shock value).

>> No.10292545

I don't think we are anywhere close to being able to fix industry standards because I don't think most people have an issue with them. The porn industry isn't going to change its rules or regulations when its primary consumers and funders have no issue with them. Especially since the current trend in society is very sex positive/porn positive/kink positive, and daring to question any of those things gets you labelled as closed minded, conservative, or anti-feminist.

Encouragement of harmful and abusive behaviours shouldn't be condoned, and if that's all the movies/books/whatever are doing, I take issue with those, too. But stories that contain those things as actual plot points or to discuss what's wrong with them aren't the same as an 18 year old girl dressing up in a schoolgirl outfit and begging daddy to fuck her, which solely exists to provide content for masturbation and which reinforces those very same awful things.

>> No.10292573

Your an idioit. It doesn't matter if you make "ethical porn" or what not. The rise in demand for porn causes a rise in sex trafficing. The sex positivity movement doesn't teach young girls the true concequences of being a whore, which no matter what you do, even if nobody judges her (or even a man desu) for doing porn, they can still regret it horribly. Many men refuse to admit that they have sexual disfunction from watching too much porn. Even with their broken dicks, they still want to die on the hill of defending like it does them any good. And don't act like you would be happy if your child became a sex worker.
