Found out today that the little fabric store that I go to is permanently shut down, the lady who owns it passed away from the coof.

Saw a lolita on my feed yesterday at a protest. SHE WASN'T WEARING A MASK!

>> No.10405221

A lolita I follow on instagram and whose coords I really like just bought a new kitten. Yay, kittens are cute! But, the said kitten is a scottish fold. Scottish fold cats suffer extreme pain their whole life because they all have the same mutation. I am debating about messaging them about it, but the truth is of they googled scottish fold even one time, they do know it and willingly got a cat that is sick. I think it is animal cruelty and now I am torn if I will just ignore their cat posts and continue following them or to unfollow them completelty :(

On Facebook I saw a friend from middle school post about the riots saying that she doesn’t think they should be violent, and that we don’t need more people dying, that not all cops are bad people, that we shouldn’t be protesting in large groups during a pandemic, etc. I agreed with every point she made, but I knew my friends would disagree completely and possibly think less of me for liking it. But whatever, I liked it anyway. Yolo

I don't expect her to do anything.

I guess I just wanted to vent somewhere. I think I might just keep following her, if the cat keeps showing in her ig I will unfollow her eventually.

Decided to look and see if there was anything good on wunderwelt now that international shipping is starting to flow again. I ended up buying a dress in a colorway I didn’t want but don’t mind owning...for more than retail. I feel ripped off by wunderwelt, but I’m still ok with the purchase. The actual colorway I want doesn’t come up very often, and this one suits my wardrobe better. I mulled over it for 3 minutes and after I clicked confirm, I feel scared. I took a huge break from buying anything so I could build my savings. Ever since rona, I’ve actually been able to save even more money so I decided why not treat myself to a few new things. This dress pushed me over into $1k spent on lolita and I’m still good, and need to stop now. But idk if I can...

>> No.10406685

nayrt but like, the ones that are alive could just be adopted out. Not sold for thousands of dollars, perpetuating the sale. There are some pretty simple and obvious solutions.

1. require scrutinous licencing to be able to legally breed animals
2. regulate the sale of bred animals
3. ban breeding of animals whose breeds rely on detrimental mutations

There will still be backyard breeders but if laws are in place about who can breed what animals, it's easier to prosecute those who use poor breeding practices.

There are millions of animals euthanized because they can't find homes. There's no reason to buy an animal bred for aesthetics when there are so many loving animals waiting for a home.

I woke up with a sore throat this morning and a runny nose. I feel sick. I know even if it's the virus, there's only a small chance I'd die, but still. I have so many more dresses I haven't worn. I have packages that would arrive after I would have died. I jokingly told my significant other who should get my possessions, but I'm serious.

I swear the protests and riots are going to cause a second wave. This is probably the beginning of our quarantine for the rest of the year. No one is talking about how in the midst of #blacklivesmatter, the same people going out and trying to bring change in the world are going to be the ones who kill people by infecting them. Give it two weeks and we're going to see police and protesters dying from the virus. No one is going to win.

I mean, that's some full on peta shit and you should stop. Animals are not humans. While I may agree with you on some level, that breeding is wrong, you're kinda taking it to an unnecessary level by comparing it to slavery. Especially with the state of particularly the US these days.

People aren't going to stop breeding animals and that's just a fact of life you have to accept. You need to choose your fights to pave the way for future generations to hopefully change attitudes about breeding so that it can stop outright. Acting like a clown isn't going to do that.

How do people get included in things like cosplay groups, collaborations, or activities with friends without inviting themselves along or crashing the party? It seems like my friends make plans to do things with each other but I don’t ever get invited.

When I invite the same people to do the same things, they accept the invitation and seem to enjoy doing it, so I don’t think it’s a matter of me not being liked, although that could still be the case. I feel less like reaching out as time goes on, though, just in case they’re only accepting my invitations out of obligation.

A mix of both. I invite the people I click with the most closely, or who I already know have a knack for that particular genre of costume or series. If you're not super close with them, then that's just a natural consequence of people's thought processes. It isn't really malicious or inherently exclusive.

That said if I had a group and a friend asked to join, personally I would be thrilled. If I asked a friend if I could join a group and they gave some reason that sounded like it was just to exclude me, I wouldn't want to stay friends with them anyway.

It's really not something with a simple answer, but try to hone the art of not giving a fuck what people think of you. Be genuine in your love of those things, invite others to yours, be passionate when it's a solo thing, and shrug off the reality that most people have a clique just naturally, and that's ok.

There is also still no one making a fuss over the black officer who was shot and killed in Oakland. Because apparently being an officer makes you suddenly worthless? The drive-by vehicle shot at both the black officer and the white officer, simply because they were police. They weren't even doing anything - they were standing, guarding a building.

All I am witnessing in my local cosplay community is fights over what characters mean (specifically X-men and its character Rogue), because apparently you cannot cosplay her if you're i nthe right-wing spectrum. People have grouped to make big texts indirectly attacking this one right-wing cosplayer, basically bragging that if you are right wing and you cosplay X-Men you didn't watch X men correctly, blah blah blah.

At this rate when the conventions go back people will literally punch each other on the con floor. I always knew there were drama everywhere and socially inept/assholes/retarded people making the community a hassle to be in, but this? People grouping up to attack someone that didn't do anything but belonging to another ideology, justifying it with another ideology and also because of non-proved harassment the right winger supposedly did. Is that right?
Where are we going to go with such madness, rage, anger, cancel culture for absolutely nothing (for example, the attempt of cancelling done to Adam Driver because he served as a Marine 10 years after Star Wars The Force Awakens)? How conventions and other entities related to cosplaying will react to these new elements?

Is cosplaying going to become a 'careful to not step in eggs' activity? I honestly feel like either giving up cosplaying at all or doing my own thing and not associate with any cosplay group at all.

Also black women get far less coverage. Ones who have done literally nothing and even a child in the past murdered in their homes by overzealous police with the wrong house or escalating to deadly force unnecessarily (Not just Breonna Taylor, other recent and older cases exist).

Although on the note of the news covering "criminals", even if the people killed had a record, it doesn't immediately mean those people are violent and the penalty for those previous crimes or the one they are accused of committing is never death, and the people who've died aren't properly tried even if they were breaking the law. And yes white people have been murdered similarly by the cops and my response to that is that while blacks often get targeted more, we should be mad about the "white on white" police brutality issues too. Videos of agressive officers beating the shit out of people and maiming/permanently injuring even non-protesting bystanders and media personnel with "less lethal" methods of all races indiscriminately should be evidence there's a problem with the system that should be addressed.

SJWs are fucking retarded and their ideology ironically breeds racism, homophobia and transphobia.

1. anyone who is of any minority status gets an out jail free card to be racist, homophobic, sexist, transphobic. "I can't be racist, I'm gay" "its just in my religion to hate gay people" that sort of bullshit flies for whatever reason

2. modern SJWism actively apploauds transphobia as long as you're being transphobic to people who have vaginas. "trans men are privledged since they are men, and men deserve no rights" "those with uteruses opress trans women"
if you don't believe this look up "baeddels" its a trip

First, good thing i'm on the Power Ranger / Star Wars movement. As much as there are nods to political moments and other movements (such as the anti vietnam war - George Lucas has told people about it when he was promoting the prequels), you don't really get to 'use' such knowledge because in the universe the stories play in, there's their own politics and other movements that kinda foreshadow, for cosplayers and people who discuss it, the m,ovements and politics they were based on.

If there were events going on I doubt people would be bickering each other on Twitter. Technically speaking i'm in the center and i've never been bothered by anyone about my positionings.

Spot fat reduction is a myth. You will not burn fat off of areas by working those areas out. Your body has a predetermined set and order of areas it will store and utilise fat. This is why some girls can be underweight but have DDs and also the reason why some girls can be YUGE but have thin faces.

You have one option and that is to lose fat until your body goes down the list of fat stores and finally gets to your arms.

Man, I'm in a similar position but my experience is the exact opposite, I've had more attention from young women in the few years since turning 30 than I've ever had from any group of women in my life.

That said I definitely know a lot of people who are subpar even by modern standards in terms of emotional maturity, but it doesn't really seem to affect their luck with dating or relationships much, hell I'm pretty universally considered "the grown up" and "the responsible guy" in my group of early 30s dudes and I've been single far longer than any of the dudes who still act like teenagers.

Imagine a proud German Shepherd. Reliable and resolute in his duties. He protects his flock and his family. Admirable, responsible, the model of a guardian dog. The thing, though, is that this came at a cost. He never knew the love or affection he should've gotten as a puppy. He was kicked and neglected to make him strong so he could do his job well. And that puppy is still inside him now and he's so hurt and so sad and so lonely and all he wants is to be petted and cuddled and told he's a good doggy.

The big German Shepherd, though, is terrified of this. It goes against everything he stands for to put the burdens of his own past onto somebody else, and he's so afraid that if he ever gets what that puppy wants he'll lose the dog he is now, the dog that can protect the flock. He thought he had it once and left his flock for it but the owner that seemed kind and gentle at first quickly turned into one that beat and screamed at him constantly and didn't even let him see his flock, and when he finally, after years, worked up the nerve to escape from this terrible owner he came home to find his flock decimated and his family in ruins.

Now he's even more certain of his role in the world. He's suspicious of new potential masters, and can't escape the guilt of leaving his flock behind to be torn apart by the wolves. However, that puppy is still in there, and it's still so sad and lonely, but the big German Shepherd, more than ever, has been so hurt and traumatized in his life that even a gentle hand that comes to pet him will be bitten, and he simply doesn't know how to change this.

Are you retarded?
On a /10 scale, 5 is your average. A 7/10 would mean in the upper 30th percentile of all people.

Most people call themselves 7/10 because it's low enough that people won't argue lower since it would be hurtful so their ego stays intact (unlike a 9/10 going to an 8 isnt really much loss) and it's not too high to be seen as bragging. Most people want to see themselves as above average but they also want to see themselves as humble so 7/10 fits that nicely.

Damn bro, I'm really sorry to hear that man. I don't have any great advice for you that wouldn't need more information on your situation, but at least getting out of LA would be a start yeah?
Look, you don't have to expound on your life if you don't want to, but are you doing all the right things at least? Y'know, lifting, engaging in non-gendered IRL hobbies, maybe seeing a psychologist for your intimacy issues? Obviously not all of these may be financially attainable for yourself, but I know some of them could be a start.
I don't want to spout platitudes at you or anything, but those should still bring you up to a workable baseline if you haven't been doing them. It might be difficult to do some with Kung Flu and all, but at least getting a plan together would be helpful.

Is it bad to wear a thong with lolita?

>> No.10410351

Damn I guess you guys saw that post I felt stupid about and deleted.

Yeah, it really has been seven years, almost to the week. Broke up with my ex just before AX '13. I've met girls who were obviously interested in me and trying to get me to make a move, and I've even been asked out a few times, but whenever I get close I feel like I'm gonna throw up.

A lot of it for me is this particular feeling that I just can't possibly be desirable or attractive and particularly that any kind of expression of sexuality is going to shock and horrify people. I imagine that's the result of a mix upbringing and how screwed up my last relationship was, one thing that really didn't help was that my ex and I had very different tastes and I was never really able to give her what she wanted, nor did she have much interest in what I was into and in fact made it clear that she though my fetishes (which are actually pretty mild and vanilla) were disgusting and would berate and degrade me any time I asked her to do anything.

For what it's worth, though, I DO feel a lot better about things once I've really gotten to know somebody well enough to feel comfortable with them, and I've had a few female friends where I felt like I could have, but they haven't been interested.

I have generally been working myself a lot but the pandemic has definitely been a major setback in a lot of ways. A lot of what I've been doing has been aimed at getting out of CA but that's also been pushed back because of it, probably by a couple of years, and that's really not helping my state of mind.

Not that my opinion means much but I don't think that what you wear under anything should matter to anybody except you or your partner if you have one, and if you do I suspect he/she would approve of it.

I feel this anons. My cat that I helped birth had to be put down 2 years ago and the pain is still there. He was 12 and passed from horrible kidney issues and I still miss him terribly every day. He was such a sweet boy and didn't deserve the hand he was dealt. But we will always hold their memories close.

Yes because people want to rewrite history and bury the past like slavery never happen. Main chick had a black maid. So now that movie is out of the window.

My cat had issues with hyperhtyoidism. He was an old boy though, 18 or 19 when he went.

I want to cosplay but I don't even know where to start. This town is fucking shit and there's nothing really near me and I don't even know what I'd choose to cosplay as. It feels like such a vast thing that's just out of reach.
