This shit is insane. What is it about pretty dresses that makes the normies crazy, gulls?

>> No.10297509


They're intimidated by things that challenge their notions of what is "normal", "feminine", "appropriate", etc. And when they see something that causes that level of cognitive dissonance their response is probably usually just really weird and unfavorable for whatever poor soul, lolita or otherwise, that is on the receiving end of their attempt to express how confused they feel.

Anything that people see as unusual is a target for attack and men especially like to use the ways women stand out as an attempt to flirt if they're creeps or insult them for not being what they consider attractive or okay for women to look like (also creeps). Men in general are strangely offended by women not attempting to please them with their physical appearance.

The sweetest comment I ever got on campus in an old school coord after a full day of constant questions about if I'm wearing a costume, going to an event, the usual, was another black girl who walked up to me and was like "Omigosh I haven't seen another lolita in so long and seeing your coord just made my day "

It made me super happy cause I always worry black people will be more critical of me in lolita (my family already shit talks me for ever dressing at all different or cutesy) and my town has very few black people in general so there was this tiny moment of like "wow another black lolita irl instead of just on the internet and she complimented my coord" and it was super nice.

Cold autumn. I was wearing very simple sweet coord and sat on a bench. I had long wool shorts underneath and an underskirt for more layers. Then an old lady came near and said something like "you are wearing such a cute clothes but you are sitting on a cold bench, you'll get your female parts ill and you won't be able to have a baby"

So, im still not sure if this sounded badass or stupid but i lifted my jsk a little to show shorts and amount of layers and said "you think i have nothing underneath that skirt while i have things to keep me warm. You are also wrong about another thing. You think you have brain but i can see there isn't any trace of it" and i went away into the sunset. Well not sunset just away from this old crazy woman. She was yelling at my back about not respecting elderly and this was funny.

>> No.10297684

So many people in the DDLG community are in their late 20s-early 30s. I wouldn't be surprised if someone that age had a toddler. It's really popular among the older millennial age group who want to go back to being kids. Except instead of buying a coloring book or watching a nostalgic movie, they do... that.
Ugh now I'm getting grossed out because she probably regresses to the age of her own child.

There's a lot of projection of potential misinformation and assumptions about the anon in question being made by the old lady when no one fucking asked her opinion.

Anon... Our vaginas don't work like testes. Unlike men, we aren't temperature-sensitive. All our reproductive shit is way up inside our body. The vagina has little to do with actually making kids outside being the entrance & exit. Again, it's not like testes.

>> No.10297730

Anon thought... Okay, men can suffer reproductive issues if the testes are exposed to temperatures higher or lower than 33 Celsius. So, for a man, sitting in their boxers on a cold bench can affect their fertility. Anon didn't know how the female reproductive system worked, and thought that it would be the same. He didn't realize that women's equivalent of the testes, ovaries, are deep inside the body close to where the hips meet the stomach, and that sitting on a cold bench cannot affect ovaries since for them to be affected, women have to experience hyper/hypothermia.

As we age our mental faculties deteriorate. Even if there’s no dementia or similar ailments present, old people don’t function mentally at the same level as younger adults do. You are a huge cunt for not having sympathy or tolerance for the elderly. It would be one thing if it was an older person insulting or hassling anon, but this old lady was literally just trying to help. Seriously fuck you.

>> No.10297757

its not so much appropriation as it is the white-dominated western world forcing their cultural norms on everyone else

>> No.10297759


She was harassing. If the lady has no dementia it makes no sense for anyone of any age to start talking about your privates. I have tons of respect for elderly people and spend loads of time around older people and none of them (even those in their eighties) are ever lost enough mentally that they make random comments about reproduction or children to strangers unprompted. If it was just her warning her to not stay out in the cold in general I'd say she was being helpful but the childbirth thing is just stupid and wrong.

If it was an old man people would obviously see it as creepy and unwarranted which it is either way. Old people can be shitty just as much as younger ones can and women can say inappropriate things just as much as men can.

Fuck you for having so little faith in the mental faculties of a healthy older person that you expect less than normal polite human behavior from them. Being older is no excuse for not understanding boundaries. They had longer than the rest of us to learn them.

That isn’t harassment you nasty slag. Trying to help others by giving advice on health is an act of kindness that comes from the heart. I work with elderly individuals daily and I know what they’re like, you clearly don’t if you think some sweet old lady giving advice is harassment. Again, seriously and sincerely, fuck you.

>> No.10297764


I'm not that anon and I wouldn't have said anything rude back to the lady. But that doesn't mean I can't find her comments invasive and rude.

Sex ed is irrelevant. She shouldn't have brought up the reproductive aspect at all. In the same way people her age would have taboos about asking a woman their age or whatever other stuff is old fashioned, randomly dicussing periods, ovaries, reproduction, etc. As your first conversation with a stranger is often seen as strange if not inappropriate across all generations. Call me a cunt all you want but that doesn't make the old lady not a weirdo for being so interested in a stranger's vagina rather than just their body warmth in general.

I get what you're trying to say and all but disagree given the situation. I volunteer and spend tons of time around elderly people as I mentioned and none of them have ever tried to be helpful in a way that came off as creepy or strange like the story the anon told.

You really love throwing the word cunt around, calm the hell down and stop pretending older people can't say inappropriate things.

I don't think being rude to the woman in response was the polite thing to do but the old lady's comments were unwarranted and unwanted and there is just no reason to believe she thought that in that moment some young woman's ovaries were that important compared to just commenting a normal helpful comment about keeping warm in general.

Until you started complaining about it there were two posts calling you a cunt, once each, made by different people. Hardly someone using it “like a middle schooler who just learned the word.” You fixating on that just comes off as trying to deflect from how much of a terrible person you must be.

>> No.10297789


No one ever said old people shouldn't be protected or respected or treated well. Those are all good behaviors. The elderly deserve as much respect as any other person obviously.

But just because a group of people are vulnerable or need help does not mean they are incapable of causing others discomfort with their actions.

The anon who posted the story was rude for lashing out at the old woman, yeah, but her being bothered by the comments was a perfectly valid way to feel.

It is possible for both parties in this situation to have behaved in ways that are wrong/could have been more appropriate. Everything isn't all good or all evil. The older woman could have discussed a less sensitive or personal topic as her first interaction with a stranger. And the girl responding could have been more polite or just ignored the aspects that they felt uncomfortable with but didn't and that's also not okay.

How is it cunty to point that out? Because curse words were used? Because the older lady isn't being painted as a pergect angel who can do no wrong because of her age? Because the original anon was an asshole to the lady so they somehow deserved to be bothered preemptively before actually having been rude in the first place?

One day the anon who was rude to the lady will be old. Are they suddenly a victim who can do no wrong even if they continue being super rude to strangers their whole life?

By the nature of the act of telling an old person to fuck off. Telling a stranger who’s attempting to help you to fuck off is indicative of ugliness on the inside, but when it’s a sweet little old lady trying to look out for the health of someone young? That’s as ugly as it gets.

>> No.10297817


I don't know why everyone assumes this old woman really cared about this person's health, given how many previous examples of old women were passive aggressive or angry or salty at people's existence for even wearing casual cute fashipn.fashion

While I'm inclined to believe she meant well but was a bit inappropriate in expressing her concern, there is still a possibility she said what she did as a sort of jab like "you'll never have kids you frilly little bitch"

Probably not but why do we assume having lived longer makes someone inherently well intentioned?

>> No.10297818

Well, if I gave a shit in the first place I wouldn't have sunk thousands of dollars into nothing but an otome or otherwise "Ginza lady" wardrobe. However I am surprised how many regular people sincerely just like how I am dressed, even when I add something controversial like real fur into the mix.
Old people lack tact, but usually when an old lady says something like that it is genuinely just a show of concern. She may have been rude, but two wrongs don't make a right and the appropriate reaction would be to smile and internally seethe rather than sperg out with a cringey one-liner and remove any chance of it being a pleasant interaction.

>> No.10297819

Yeah the anons saying they'd respond rudely are wrong. The right solution is to ignore it or like you said, keep it inside and not spurt out douchey responses to people even if they said something in a weird or uncomfortable way.

On a happier note with old people, of the sweetest but weirdest encounters I had was at an expensive antique store that was way out of my league.

Sex wasn't publicly acceptable, but it was encouraged for men and married couples. It was only the public depiction of sex that was a no-go. Most middle age people are more kinky and crazy then you think.

>older white lady comes up to gush about the clothes for a good 10 minutes
>she keeps saying thank you for dressing like this
>"you make everyone around you who sees you just a little more cheerful and happy. keep spreading that joy"
>she says she used to wear similarly feminine clothes back in the day, so happy to see something so lovely and cheerful today
>"are you wearing a crinoline under that?" it's a bit colder today so just petticoats "oh my, petticoats, what an old fashioned word..how lovely"
>a little girl, probably age 5ish, was with her mon staring at me the whole time
>lady starts talking to the girl too, says "do you want to wear a beautiful dress with rabbits on it like that one day and look wonderful like her too?"

this one happened just yesterday
>two old chinese ladies come up to me to say they love my outfit
>one is particularly enthusiastic, big smiles, asks where i got the clothes from
>"oh, i thought it would be from england! because it looks very old england historical"
>"i love seeing beautiful things like this (gestures at dress).... and beautiful girls like you"

i get a lot of positive comments from younger normies too, mostly "i love your outfit" "you look so cute" but my favorite from a fellow student was
>young black guy student comes up to me
>"i'm sorry to bother you and i'm sure you probably already know this, but"
>"your fit? it's really fresh."

Same here. I'm so self-conscious. I'm a definite butterface and I used to have terrible social anxiety and panic attacks. At best I felt invisible, and when anyone did notice me they thought I was awkward or that I was The Ugly Girl.

Now I get so many sweet comments when I go out, and I also hear people say nice things even if not directly to me. Lots of stuff about how cool my skirts are and things like that.

>going into sephulta

This is so cute, anon, fills my heart with joy. It's not that I haven't had any negative comments at all, but it really is a ratio of 95% compliments and nice things to 5% nastiness that wearing lolita overall has had a really positive impact on my life.

It motivated me to lose weight so that I'm now happy and comfortable with my body, and while I hadn't really associated my improved self-esteem with lolita, it does really cheer me up and make me feel better when strangers say nice things to me.

Don’t feel bad. Normies think everything unusual is a fetish, and society sexualizes literally everything in general.

Thanks for the support, I know it's not my fault everything thinks everything is sexual but it really gets on my nerves.
It would be fine if some people think my style is weird, but the thought of people thinking it is me trying to like age regress, look like a baby, possibly be wearing diapers, and be a publicly displaying pervert/pedophile really bugs me.
Since then I kind of moved on to a Swankiss larme-like style, I still wear all pastels but they are all things that look kind of forest-fairy or cloudy and things that are not super revealing so I still feel pastel and dreamy, I just moved away from the pigtails and hair stars and over the top character prints/accessories.
I'm glad other people can get past all that stuff I mentioned earlier and have fun, I used to not care and still really adore fairy kei and pop kei but I just got really traumatized over the whole thing.

>this kind of duplicity and false friendliness is my least favorite stereotypically female trait and I wish people would just fucking stop. Be honest. Be honest the first time!

It feels to me that she wasn't being duplicitous, but rather she might have been envious/disappointed? I think a lot of people are used to very cheap fast fashion so seeing a dress listed as $200-$400 might be a bit of a sticker shock to them, and they get upset and frustrated that they can't afford something or that someone else is "better off" than them. Sour grapes.

I get asked where I get my stuff a lot and I'm always as vague as possible because I don't want to spend 5 minutes explaining shopping services/lace market/pre-orders/taobao/buying stuff from Japan only to have them balk at the effort/expense. They may like what I'm wearing but I doubt they like it enough to bother with it. It's a little presumptuous and maybe condescending of me, but honestly, I got shit to do.

>> No.10322234

> I get asked where I get my stuff a lot and I'm always as vague as possible because I don't want to spend 5 minutes explaining shopping services/lace market/pre-orders/taobao/buying stuff from Japan only to have them balk at the effort/expense.

Same. I've had a few people recognise my clothes as lolita before and react positively, either because they know someone who wears it or are interested in it themselves. Those people I don't mind going to the effort to explain stuff too. But if they obviously just see it as 'wow omg weird japan' or some kind of extravagant dress up I just don't bother, I just give a vague explanation because I hate getting excited to talk about the fashion just to get shut down. Also if they don't already recognise it as lolita fashion I'd rather not get myself into giving the whole name spiel.

> 'Oh, I could help starving children and animals, but instead I'll just pretend I'm a princess!' Right?"

These kinds of people always make me laugh with how morally superior they act when usually they're in head to toe fast fashion that they treat as disposable.

Sorry I work for my money, spend months, sometimes years tracking down specific pieces and then actually wear them often and take care of them because I see value in the things I own and making them last instead of jumping on mindless trends. Lolita might look flashy but as a subculture with our secondhand market and emphasis on preserving our clothes it's a hell of a lot better for the world than whatever these bitter bitches who refuse to spend more than $20 on a dress are wearing. I highly doubt any of them are Mother Theresa donating every spare bit of their time and money to selfless causes. They just complain to feel better about themselves.

>> No.10322248

I mean yes, you could absolutely right, but you also see this behavior a lot in people (I've seen a lot of men do it) when, say, they're trying to hit on or proposition someone and they get turned down. Starts out, "Hello Beautiful! xoxo" and then the minute they hear no it's, "You're not even that pretty and you're fat!"

Almost like it's trying to soothe their ego?

I can't imagine wanting to be two-faced and stuff and then coming back in a huff like that. It just sounds more like they got a bee up their bustle and it stung their pride.

Maybe she thinks it is non sexual because I have a friend who is a little from being abused by multiple people while having narcissistic parents who locked her in closets.

For her, it's a dissociation thing like an alter in DID. Not sexual at all even though she asks me to "hurt" her sometimes when she's little to prove I won't abandon her. Yeah.

And by friend I mean spiritual daughter my own age I have sworn to protect with my life as if I were her mother. And I would want to fucking kill anyone who tries creepy pedo shit on her.

>I hate getting excited to talk about the fashion just to get shut down
I'm never sure what to say because I want to avoid this too. And I'm pretty sure most people who ask don't really care about the specifics, even though they're being nice. It feels like more of a formality that way. Once when I walked into a normie store, one of the staff had the "I love your clothes, where did you get them?" reaction, but was halfway across the room and didn't walk over to me. The moment I started responding, she already looked incredibly bored and unimpressed and her body language screamed that she wanted to get on with her business.

So as much as I appreciate compliments, I need a polite, 3-5 word way of saying "thanks, but it's not going to matter to you desu" to cut the interaction off before it gets awkward like that.

>> No.10322403

I had a similar experience! My 2 friends and I were dressed up, playing games at an arcade. An employee came up to us and asked us if we were 'just lolitas' or if we were littles, too?

Honestly, I think just being vague and not grinding things to a halt is the best bet.

I've accustomed myself to being able to answer "Thanks!" while still moving if I was already walking. That helps.

Mostly if they pair a question with a compliment
I answer it like, "Thanks, got it online," or "Thanks, not going anywhere, just how I dress." Sometimes if I'm feeling cheeky, I'll respond to "Where are you going all dressed up?" with a straight-faced, "the store" or "home" or the like. Or play "dumb" and just kind of watch them awkwardly trip over themselves trying to explain themselves.

A friend of mine busted out the "Oh, what, this old thing?" the other day and that was pretty great.

I also have a friend who's 6'3" and pretty solidly built and I notice people approach me less when he's with me. He said that it seems like people will also use the compliment as an opener to ask a bunch questions or try to touch the outfit.
