Becuase gofundme isn't patreon. In patreon you offer something to the people suporting you, maybe photo shoots or special videos weekly only they see and pay for. More or less it is like a job, they are at least paying for a service of some sort. The money they receive can go wherever, but at least some of it is used to supply more content and keep the gravy train rolling. Gofundme is typically filled with people asking for handouts, trying to reach a specific goal. If that goal interests people then they will support it. So when a bunch of people donate money thinking it's going to a cause they support and it ends up going into some asshole's pocket or for a vacation which they didnt notify people about, that's a scam. Im pretty sure it also goes against gofundme's policies as well.

This was posted on jharts page. He was asking what sort of patterns people would like to see more of essentially. I just don't understand this girl's response. I get that drafting takes a while especially going from scratch but based on what I'm reading here she doesn't even want to seam rip a shitty corset that fits and do slight adjustments. The whole read screams like she doesn't want to do any of the work but just wants a pattern to magically work.

>> No.9188416

This girl has a serious misunderstanding of how much work goes into corsetry. Even with highly versatile patterns with six different size measurements for the bust, waist, and hips you STILL need to mockup two or three times to get something that fits you properly. Unless you really know what you're doing, pretty much any well fitted "new" cosplay pattern should be mocked up first.

I don't either. It happens a lot and it really doesn't seem to have anything to do with being attractive or not; it's more about guys thinking they have free reign at cons and that they can get away with it. There's no reason to make this shit up. I don't think anyone is flattered by it.

These kind of things are rare but they do happen.

Well, that's what I fundamentally do not understand.

Nobody teaches you to just "let it slide" anymore, and they haven't for ages. Media penetration on this subject definitely reaches anyone who wasn't taught what to do in this situation earlier in their lives. If you were legitimately sexually harassed, either you go to report it or you're fine with it and willing to let it slide, but if you choose the latter then don't bitch about it after the fact. You had a chance to tell them off or turn them in but opted not to. Either you're totally fine with it or you're grossly exaggerating for effect.

>> No.9199012

Because you've never been in that situation. You've never been terrified that a guy is going to go from harrassing you to being violent and aggressive. I've not reported people because most of the time you're disgusted and scared and just thinking about how to get out of the situation unharmed. Once you're away, you pretty much don't want to even think about it anymore.

I think it's weird too, but from all the stories like this I've read it seems like a lot of women get really intimidated in these situations and seem to not realize they have the agency to do something about both during and after.

Seriously, if a stranger guy is being creepy to you, and you're in a public place and aren't even there alone, it's absolutely fucking fine to be rude to someone who is being creepy or harassing you. They're a stranger, it doesn't matter, and in a crowd when you're together with friends they pose little threat. And you should always report afterward, if only to keep the guy from bothering other girls.

Not speaking up when being harassed in public for fear of that situation happening is like never leaving your house before the. Sure, it could happen, but the chances are so incredibly low that it's irrational and will only hurt you in the long run to worry about it.

If you speak up, people WILL be on your side. You don't have to worry about being seen as oversensitive. If you really feel threatened, it's fine to speak up. In lesser situations just tell the guy to fuck off, leave the area he's in, and report him if necessary.

I actually have been. Don't believe the lies that people who cried wolf tell you. Don't believe these false feminist icons that have never spent a day hungry or actually oppressed by males in any way. You don't "cower", your first instinct is to enter "fight or flight" if it seriously bothers you.

There is nothing wrong with you if it doesn't bother you, either, but I've noticed that a lot of these people tend to never actually bring it up because it, you know, didn't bother them.

In my support group, I see that the group is divided between two groups of people - actual victims, and people who got felt up at a party by someone who was drunk and then they say they've been "raped" or "assaulted". Then they act like the whole thing was so traumatizing, and it's because there are people out there that want to show their support to actual victims that they let these attention whores get away with their bullshit.

And I'm not saying that the latter is anyone here in this thread.

I am saying that there is a mentality that exists within us women that we tend to embellish our stories to make us seem more like victims than we actually are, and a lot of it is done after the fact because we're more upset with the idea of what happened than we are of the actual act while it was occurring.

I'd disagree, I think cowering is a third reaction. Some people do go deer in the headlights when faced with a frightening situation.

Of course, that's exactly how you get hit by the car, but don't try to tell them that.

I think it's less that many women want to be victims after the fact, and more that they assign themselves a victim role right from the start. That's why in scary situations like this, they'll act like a doormat and wait for someone else to rescue them, because they are the victim and victims don't have agency. There is absolutely nothing they can do to stop or escape the situation on their own. I find that kind of mentality concerning but I see it quite a lot.

I'm one of these people because of anxiety. You just totally blank and there's nothing you can do so you either hope it goes away or someone bails you out. It's not a conscious decision, if it was I'd have been a hell of a lot more graceful when strangers talked to me when I was younger.

>and more that they assign themselves a victim role right from the start. That's why in scary situations like this, they'll act like a doormat and wait for someone else to rescue them, because they are the victim and victims don't have agency

Eeeh, as I said, it's not really a conscious decision that "I'm going to be a victim so I must act like one", more "I have no idea what to do" which causes them to go along with whatever's happening, even if it's not the best situations.

Part of it could be self confidence. If you're confident in yourself, you're going to be okay with kicking up a fuss and telling someone to fuck off. If you're not confident in yourself, you might not feel comfortable drawing attention and being loud and conspicuous, especially if you're young with very little life experience.

I've never seen Attack on Titan either, all I know about that off the top of my head is that it's about teenagers in the army, there's naked giants attacking the teenagers, and I believe that the Japanese title begins with an 's'.
Just because people are interested in dorky things, it doesn't mean they're necessarily interested in the dorky things that you are interested in.

Not the same anon but I want to jump in and say I agree.

It seems like women have a massive problem with ever complaining. Story time: I'm on my uni's japanese society committee, bunch of girls stopped turning up to events because of two creepy guys. They said nothing, despite having the option to discreetly talk to one of the committee members who would have sorted it pronto. No fuss, no scene. They didn't even have to speak to us in person, we have all kinds of online contact. What's more is we didn't know it was a serial problem until we're all sitting around gossiping and realise we've all seen or heard about this creepy behaviour from these people.

Seriously speak the fuck up if something like this happens to you. You may not have the self esteem to do it for yourself, but when you've witnessed something like this you have a chance to protect other people.

>> No.9200752

If you're ever harassed (in any situation, not just one like this) get loud. Scream and shout what this guy is doing. Let everyone hear. People will turn their heads. With an audience, guys like that loose their audacity and can't stumble out an explanation fast enough. All in all though, sorry that happened to you.

It's not rude to say no. Your comfort is more important than their picture. And if it's happening to you, it's happening to someone else. It's a viscous cycle.

>> No.9201831

I feel like I've been summoned but really, I just spend way too much time on /cgl/.

Coloring-Chan isn't speaking to me currently but she has been extremely active on Facebook complaining about a lot of things.

>family's new dog (to replace the one that died) won't let her sleep because she has to watch it?
>she's being 'forced' to move into her step-grandmother's house to help care for her because she's got dementia/Alzheimer's or something akin to that
>says in another post she got bribed to do it with internet and a new lock for her room
>admits she's in another "manic low" that has her yelling and fighting with parents

I can definitely see the new locking doorknob for her room causing some future shit to go down because she's the type to lock her door while she's in there just to prevent her parents from getting in and then yelling at them through the door until there's a screaming match going on between them like that.

Coloring-Chan is going to be shit taking care of an elderly woman who's losing her short term memory as well. She's supposed to be helping her mother care for her but her mother (who is sick as well) is going to be taking care of the both of them at this rate because CC won't do a damn thing but sit there and continue to complain how she can't watch her K-dramas because of the internet being spotty. She's already complaining as is on FB about it.

And just because I'm totally over this friendship and more than ready to just cut ties entirely if it weren't for people wanting updates, I'll out some shit I've kept back:

CC is a multi-year staffer at a convention. Yes, this sort of person is in charge of a con.
CC has paranoid crazy beef with another staffer that has gotten us into a fight before because this staffer (referred to as a group admin before?) so much as types CC's name in a sentence and suddenly she's DISRESPECTING MUH AUTHORITY, ANON! and CC starts threatening to talk to the department head about this disrespect!!!!!

>> No.9201834

She may have already brought it up with the department head for all I know since I distanced myself from her in that respect almost immediately after the second time she flipped out over this one staffer "refusing to acknowledge" her. It's just so ridiculous and every year CC power trips like crazy while doing absolutely no work and she even brought her headphones and her COLORING BOOK to her assignment at the convention. Needless to say it's bullshit and I have no idea how she's still on staff.

But yeah, just putting all this out here since I don't think I'll be updating on her for a long while unless shit hits the fan between her and me or her and her family or the con.

Thanks for following along on the wild ride everyone!

>> No.9202238

She sort of snuck her way onto con staff? She literally watched one set of doors years ago as a volunteer and just kept doing it for a couple years then was just giving a staffer position because she was there every year and the department head got used to seeing her.
Now her job is basically to yell at people (which she admits she enjoys doing) and to basically shove all her tasks onto me. We recently got a new department for handicapped attendees and she tried to worm her way onto that by sucking up to the head of it with "muh BPD muh injuries muh obesity" and they told her they were only taking people with qualified backgrounds in that kind of service and she sulked the rest of the meeting. That didn't stop her from getting a pass into a special room they had set up though for people with special issues who needed somewhere quiet to just destress for a minute and telling everyone all about it like she'd gotten into the VIP club.
I got onto con staff through her, sort of like a package deal? I'd likely be kicked off if anyone knew I was posting about her but it'll be awkward as hell to work around her and honestly, I'm the only one who got to see what a Grade-A bitch she was being towards other staffers and her powertripping so if I get the boot then that's fine, she's the one unmedicated BPD who gets to be allowed to vent by screaming at people and takes too much joy out of it.

Me? I've finished high school ages ago and I'm half-way through my first semester at college since I got government funding to do so. I'm doing well though, I've got all 92+ grades in my classes which is in large part to CC and another person pushing me to do my best because I didn't want to end up with them giving me those "Well you tried but you know, I got ___ in my classes" remarks even though CC hasn't been to college in years and quit before she got her degree.. in Psychology.
But yeah, I'm doing good.

Better now that I unfriended her everywhere and turns out -c

>> No.9202242

she unfollowed me and a 'mutual' friend (friend didn't like her very much, turns out she only humored her for my sake) on a social media site because I had been sending messages to said friend about a new game and CC was watching I guess because she kept sending us messages about the game with borderline spoilers and we basically ignored her because turns out she unfollowed me and mutual both and neither one of us noticed it until last night when I was unfriended CC on everything.
That shows how bad off our friendship was that I didn't notice her unfollowing me probably two weeks ago? I was just glad to stop getting message notifications even if I couldn't ignore her steady stream of FB updates whining about everything in her life she had to do in order to help out her family who expects very little of her already.

Ok, so a couple weeks ago, I went out to get groceries and run errands with my bf. While I was minding my own shit, some cow comes waddling up to me clad in yoga pants and other spandex garbage. Now, I'm a pretty standard fatty myself so I'm not usually the first to cast judgement on weight, but this bitch was a ham avalanche. I mean you could see the lard rippling through her pants and she was about one butter sandwich away from being rascal bound.
So, I'm minding my own shit and she comes up to me and fucking screeches while pointing at my outfit. My bf already has an "oh shit, we need to leave" look on his face, but I stupidly engage her. We talk about the style a little while she's jumping, flapping around, and trying to touch my clothes.. eventually I see an opening and go to pay for our stuff and get out of there. Whatever, bitch is just enthusiastic about seeing something new, so I shrug it off. After we leave, we walk around down town for a little while and I notice the girl is just kind of following us, but I ignore it. Finally, after checking out a few shops we head to the bus stop and sit down when she runs back up to us with a very disinterested guy on her arm. She screams again, points at me while jumping up and down, and turns to the dude she's dragging around.

"Daddy, daddy, you HAVE to get me that dress! It's soooo cute, PLEASE, DADDY?"

Somehow I manage to keep a straight face, but my bf looks like he's gonna shit his pants right there. The dude she's with is obviously embarrassed and people are turning around to look at where all the fucking yelling is coming from. He just gave her a PAINED expression and was like "Uh...sure...?" before looking back at me with a very sad apologetic look. We all kinda stay silent for a few seconds before he gently ushers her away from us. Luckily, the bus got there immediately after that and we got the fuck home.

Should probably mention it was the kind of semi-awkward "what do we do now" staring, because my mask covers my face, and her helmet had a face shield that covered most of theirs. Made for a few awkward half steps towards each other and stuttering.

Now, at this point, I had thought things were chill. I was having a good time, and as far as I knew, so was everybody else. K & B were acting a bit distant, but I really thought nothing of it, since we are in different fandoms and have different interests, so I just figured they were fine doing their own thing. Apparently, I was wrong. Because Sunday morning, shit started to go down.

>> No.9236906

Normally this wouldn't have me so salty, but when I legitimately did nothing wrong and people are getting mad at me for it, it really gets under my skin. Especially since it's been 3 months since the con, and they are still excluding me from stuff, saying I'm on "probation" and that our friendship is on rocky grounds. This whole thing really blindsided me, especially since we used to be really close and never had any fights in the past. Hell, I would often call K and stay up until 12 or later whenever she was in a bad depressive spell, and B and I were so close that we hung out almost every other weekend despite living an hour away from each other. We always went out to eat together and I thought we just clicked, but their behavior did a complete 180 over the span of one weekend. Now we don't even talk, and if we do, I have to watch my words because they get pissy if I mention the fact that I dared to have other friends outside of K&B's circle.

Luckily I'm working on getting away from them and cutting off our friendship. Now I just need to cut them out of my room for Colossal (which they again, invited themselves to, despite the room being full and claiming that they "need" a bed) because like hell if I'm dealing with this bullshit drama again. Even in middle school I've never dealt with this much bullshit. It's ridiculous, and I regret even going to a con with them.

This was a lot longer than I meant it to be, my thanks if you've endured it all.

>> No.9236958

I mean it sounds like you have enough friends to where you could not talk to them anymore and be fine. I'm petty and would send screenshots of everytime i invited them out and they declined. And the fact that you told them you would be drinking and she still brought it up is crazy. Just text them asap, like tomorrow and tell them the room is completely full and you forgot someone else was going that reserved a spot a long time ago so you wont have room. If they bitch just don't reply, you seem like a chill person and it's obvious they are starting to get salty that you're branching out and having fun.
