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.

>> 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.

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.

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.

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 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?

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?

>>10297817
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.

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. I ran into a lady there who exclaimed I looked adorable and it reminded her of her young days when she would drive too fast in her ferrari, causing her petticoats to lift up and flash all the boys.

Most of the time I get old people reminiscing about how they used to dress like that, and I think it's pretty sweet.

Porn use to be shown in theaters, like Deep Throat, and people forget that everyone knew what a nudie mag was. Back when newspaper stands and stores were common, you bought nudie mags on the top shelf where children couldn't see. Guess what all those people did when the internet came out? 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.

The problem with the internet is that younger people don't know how to communicate or find information without it nor can they fathom the possibility. It's sad. I grew up with the internet, but discussion like this does prove what some older people have lamented about to me.

>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.

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. There's even been some newer lolitas in my comm who look up to me and tell me they love my coords and it really warms my heart.
