If I put a glass screen protector over my phone camera, does it change the camera's quality or is it truly transparent so it doesn't make a difference? I can't test it out without removing the adhesive film. Thanks in advance

I wanna make this skirt, and I am kinda new to sewing in general.
I want to be able to wear it now and also when I go back to my former weight (10cm less of waist), so how should I measure the waistband?

Anonymous 12017

Don't worry, you won't notice a difference even though front cameras are typically worse than the back camera. Plus the glass coating is already covering the lens. Even highly professional cameras use glass filters on top of the lens, sometimes several ones stacked (Neutral Density or Polarization filters), which yes, when scratched or dirty can mess with the image quality, but as long as you keep your phone decently clean, you won't notice at all and may actually save yourself the heartbreak of getting a scratch or a crack right above the lens.

Thanks, anon! You gave me the courage to put the screen protection and even though a teeny tiny speck of dirt (? i suppose) got stuck in it, it feels way better now. I have a bad experience with shattered screens so this feels nice and safer.

I'm a dumbboo who still doesn't get it, I don't know that much about the anatomy inside of a mouth. Is it simply that a piece of gum is too big? I feel like chewy low grade gummis that feel like a hard gel are as hard to chew and can be as big. When I look this up online, all I get are articles on what happens when humans decide to ingest gum. But why don't we naturally just swallow it? Because we know you're not supposed to swallow gum? Because a standard sized piece is too big to trigger the reflex?

Anonymous 12175


Anonymous 12180

If I had to guess I'd say it's because it doesn't feel like food. Ever notice how we don't really chew and then swallow it all at once? We swallow little by little as we chew, progressively. We can't do that with gum because it doesn't break down no matter how much we chew, so the body probably doesn't identify it as edible. (had a similar experience eating octopus, it took a long time to chew and I had to manually swallow it because it wouldn't break down. I don't recommend eating that either.)

Since we're on the topic of gum: why isn't it biodegradable? I've made gum dissolve a couple times by chewing on it for too long (over 12 hours lol) so it doesn't seem like something that should stay on the ecosystem very long. Or is it biodegradable and I'm mixing it up with plastic?

i've had cats. i've met friends cats. i've even made friends with a feral cat. i like em. so, my sister has a male cat who is about 1 year old. when the cat was little (before getting neutred) he was super agressive and hurt everyone. now he has calm down and gets along with people. even for a while with me.

but completely out of nowhere the cat has decided that he hates me. everytime he sees me he hisses or runs away. i'm not even touching him or doing anything he just gets mad when he sees me it lowkey hurts my feelings ;-; how do i make him stop hissing at me for no reason i want to be his friend. i've never had this problem with a cat before i think maybe he's just agressive or not very friendly? or maybe he senses that i'm evil i don't know but i don't like it anons! help me make friends with my sister's cat. when he was little i babysat him and fed him and now he takes any chance to hiss at me/hurt me/run away like i did something wrong and i don't know why. please forgive me mr cat i want your love

Do you have any other pets at home? Cats will get like that if they smell another strange animal on you. Whatever it is, it probably has to do with scent - does your sister's house have a specific scent he might be used to that you could emulate?

maybe i could use my sisters hair gel or her perfume? she's out of town rn and i'm trying to watch after the cat. hopefully taking a shower before seeing the cat/wearing my sisters perfume or something can help? because that poor guy seems super stressed out and lonely i really want to help.

Okay this sounds like weird pet mumbo jumbo, but I'd bet this works pretty well. Does your sister have a used hoodie around? Try wearing or rubbing it on some of your clothes before you go over there. Using some of her perfume might work well, too.

third world country, amiga. this isn't the first place i've been looking for AT ALL. being a college student with no experience basically means you're useless unless you drop out. cuz college drop outs are considered way more valuable becuse that way you work more and get paid less. so all those entry level jobs you're suggesting want dropouts here and not college students/people with degrees. making it hard for me because anything above that wants experience that i don't have because i'm a college student that's going to get her degree soon. so i just want money and experience but i'm having a hard time.

so yeah i just imagined that since theres only one maid cafe in town they would just take whatever half cute girl in her 20s and wouldn't ask for much from me other than being decent looking. that's why i was sort of interested.i know a lot of the lurkers here into lolita/cosplay stuff so i thought i'd ask if i needed to have all that expensive lolita and cosplay stuff…so there you go anon… thanks i guess… tl;dr not every country has tons of job opportunities. this is one that interested me but i don't know a lot about lolita cafes. again, theres only ONE in my entire town. i was just asking a simple question dog why r u being so mean to me lemme ask my dumb questions

Anonymous 12445

well, it probably doesn't hurt to be a cosplayer/lolita considering the type of customer that business model attracts, but it depends on whether it's a functioning business or whether it's the weeby owner's harem fantasy. a real maid cafe would most likely supply you with a uniform (or allow you to buy one at a discounted rate) while the latter usually expects you to come up with your own.
i'd really only apply there if it's been around for a few years and has an established reputation because, at least in the states, those maid cafes never seem to stick around for long and usually look like really shitty environments to work in. but if you're wanting to make decent tips from the neckbeards, you'll need to cultivate a following of regulars instead of just relying on being half-cute and female. think of it like a gig at hooters; you're not just a waitress, you're a ~model~ and ~entertainer~. it won't necessarily be any easier than being a server at a normal restaurant.
also try applying at some retail stores. that's where i got my first part-time job when i was in college.

lolita clothing=/=maid uniform, btw.

Some trolls from wherever started posting about how lolcow queen PixyTeri was molesting and taking lewds of some child she was babysitting. Another poster (PTNR), who was trolling PT for milk/info had recalled her babysitting at some point, so a lot of anons started freaking out. Many posts about contacting authorities later, SR Admin jumped ship and baleeted the site.

At the time, there was some lolcow crossover with Unichan (an imageboard obsessed with Boxxy and others). A long time friend and whiteknight of June (shoe0nhead) took the opportunity to create lolcow.farm as a honeypot to lure Unichan posters to LC, in order to figure out which of June's friends were shittalking her on anon by comparing their post IPs with their skype/facebook IPs.

What do ~normal~ men think of female virginity, deep down?

On one hand I have difficulty putting my faith in the rhetoric that every single guy secretly see the complete lack of prior sexual experience as the ideal, as it's paraded mostly by incels, but on the other hand I also can't help but see the possibility that guys who claim that they largely don't care about a woman's sexual experience, or even see virginity as a slightly negative thing are concealing their true thoughts to avoid social ostracism, or to obtain women's approval.

Anonymous 12533

Most normie men don't think less of you if you're not a virgin anymore, but virginity is kind of a nice bonus from what I have seen. The only way most men may think less of you regarding sex is if you're the typical slut, etc. Most also won't think you're a weird freak if you're older and virgin as long as you give a good reason for being one, like not finding someone you actually wanted to be with. It makes them feel a bit more special. The only normie men I know who didn't care about me being a virgin not even a tiny bit were the men who just wanted to fugg and would rather me be an experienced bitch.

Box fans are god-tier. Experiment with a couple ways of setting them up, though. I've notice that sometimes you want the fan sending outside air in, and sometimes you want it sending inside air out.
When you open windows, the windows that face each other are the most important. Air will go in one window and out the other, and that cross breeze works the best for getting hot air out of there.
We would also lay down blankets on all of our upholstered furniture so the sweat wouldn't soak into the fabric. That stuff stinks up really quick if you let it.
Try to avoid using the oven and stove. It's just extra heat, microwaves and outdoor grills don't have that problem.

I never found him to feel "invested" about any lolcow. The whole air about the creation of lolcow as "I see your old site is gone. I have experience. here's a site". He has always seemed a bit detached and nonchalant about all the cows, which is what made him a decent admin in the first place. Though, it was through his nonchalance that the site got fucked up in the first place (questionable decisions like what was /snow/flakey and not and etc.).

>one of the first threads I would have made would have been a thread about said pal in order to bait people into posting

you sound lame and obvious. Shoe back then was nothing more than an attention whore from some backwater Boxxy chan. her threads were literally "her boobs are fake. no they aren't where's your proof. she looks like boxxy".

It's because usually people don't have enough facts to back up their arguments and are too lazy to research what they "believe in", so they resort to name calling and being petty in hopes that it will tire out the other party and thus they will "win" the argument.
It's childish and retarded, but some people believe that just because the other person stopped talking or got mad because they got tired of their shit, they were right and "won".

Why do people judge others by looks subconsciously but don't want to admit it even though there have been studies proving it? Is it because they'll seem shallow and bigoted if they admit it? Or they think they're more enlightened than the masse?

And why won't my cat scratch her scratching post instead of the furniture? It's driving me crazy.

It's all a matter of the uses you plan for your phone/computer and what you're already used to. I hate iPhones because of how you have to access the settings and the places where the "keys" are placed on the screen, the layout, but that's because I only got to use my sister's iPhone 4 some years ago and I'm more used to Android. I like how you have more buttons on Android phones and the fact that you can add a memory card, among other things.

Two questions:

1. My boyfriend of ~4 months frequently tells me he likes me a lot. Some context: I'm very insecure (he's very handsome and intelligent, like disgustingly so), we broke up for a very short time then got back together (trying to overcompensate for that perood??) and he said that from his psychoanalysis as a kid that he is most likely on the spectrum (so he doesn't know when to stop?). Why would he say that a lot? A similar thing happened to me with a scumbag and he ended up fucking another girl when we were supposed to hang out. I know my boyfriend isn't like him but I can't help but wonder.

2. Has anyone been accepted into a masters program with a completely different undergrad program and mediocre marks? I don't like what I have studied to do, but I don't want to do another bachelor's degree… so I thought a masters would be a good option… but oh! My marks… my marks! Is there any hope??

This. Figuring out how to use an iPhone is awful and confusing. My mom used to own an iPhone 5 and she would come to me a lot for her old people/technology problems. Recently she got an android and she agrees that they are far more intuitive and easier to handle.

How different? I've seen it happen many times, at least where I live it's not as much your grad grades that matter but your masters project. I think it's hard if they're not connected at all, but if you manage to find a link it's not impossible (for example, I've seen people with english degrees getting into bio masters because language acquisition is a neurological process, so they're linked)

If you really want to do this grad program, look into extra things you could do to make your application more appealing. Internship or volunteering in urban planning related positions, or take relevant classes if you're still in school. Doing relevant work will probably be more important, but it depends on the program. Find out more by contacting the institutions that you're interested in to see what their requirements are. Probably not a whole new degree, but just classes that are relevant prerequisites or related to core studies of the program.

Can I eat any type of fish raw? As in, is it safe?
For example sardines, herrings, catfish…

Anonymous 13114

No, they may have parasites. Why would you want to have any type of fish raw anyway?

Anonymous 13133

technically yes. lake/river fish have a higher likelihood of bacteria though. ocean fish have less, and farmed fish have basically none. fresh frozen or fresh is the safest. also there's not much you can do to prevent bacteria if the fish has it. vinegaring doesn't really do anything for it, neither does parboiling.

Anonymous 13134

also, just to add make sure it's a fish fish. things like shellfish etc need to be handled very carefully, but things that are 'fish' only need to be fresh or fresh frozen (as in day caught) from a fish market or from a trustworthy store that sells 'sushi fish'. polite sage.

Have you ever eaten sushi, anon? lol It's not a new concept. I honestly prefer raw fish, I mean, I like it prepared in anyway, but for me, the flavor and texture really comes out when it's raw. I feel like a lot of fish that I bake or fry and such ended up being "samey". The taste is delicious, ofc, but it isn't as distinct as when it is raw.


Thank you so much for this complete answer, anon! One of the current season fishes that I really like is actually a river one (Tilapia), but I am almost sure it's farmed. (especially because their native river is always compromised by droughts, which really sucks)
I also really like flounder, so I am glad to hear sea fish are safer in general.

Another dumb question, is it because of the salt?

I've eaten raw fish for a long time, but I am just now learning about new fishes than the ones I always consumed raw (salmon, tuna, st. peter's fish, trout, etc) and looking for fresher and cheaper seasonal fish. As I said, I do prefer them raw (in general), and it's also easier to prep it.

Anonymous 13146

yep it is because of the salt basically. a lot of bacteria is transported to bodies of water via rain, but many cannot survive in the harsh salt waters. also the chances of fish having bacteria in the ocean is lowered because of the sheer number of creatures.

as long as you can be sure the source of the meat is very particular about keeping the animals clean, you can eat every meat raw without problems.

not eating certain meats raw is a matter of culture, and if the culture doesn't eat the meat raw they don't put in the extra money and resources to ensure pathogens and stuff doesn't get to the animals.

Pronounced vowel. Hence why it is "an hour" but not "an hospital".

Anonymous 13232

you must be female and over 18 to post

jelly material is toxic so you really should have researched more before purchasing, and if you think the hymen exists/is something that needs to be broken then you should research more about the female body

Anonymous 13234


But anon, the hymen do exist and it can be "broken". The thing is; this shouldn't matter nor be determinent of a woman's value, and that's the problem with it.

I think it's a good idea that she tries to break the membrane by herself since a lot of men just simply don't care. It's better than cleaning bloody sheets later.

The material doesn't matter (I can't say if jelly is toxic or not for I don't know), the important thing is that you're very wet (or have tons of lube) and, mostly important, very relaxed. It should be quick once you are ready, it's a very thin membrane after all. Some women don't even have it at all and some have just a small "thread". There should not be blood if you do things slowly, at least not enough to stain anything.

However this will not "facilitate" things when you are with a partner. It's all very situational. If you are stressed out with a partner, it will hurt with or without your hymen, because it's truly such a puny part of the female body.

Why are you calling the other anon names? She's not entirely wrong. All hymens have holes (y'know, for periods and stuff). During sex the hymen doesn't actually break, the existing hole stretches. It can be a slow, not so painful stretch; or it can be stupid fast and painful if your partner is an ass. That said, it does depend on your own anatomy - sometimes it's easier, some women have the hymen more "rigid", some might even require a surgery.

I did it myself because I was terrified of it happening for the first time during sex. Buy a bottle of lube and use your fingers, that's what I did.

Just take your time and be gentle, there's no reason why it should hurt too much or for you to bleed.

Sizes have always been ridiculous, it's just easier and easier to notice I guess. How things are going to fit can depend on the brand, the cute of the clothes and other arbitrary criteria. I feel like the worst is definitely when sizes are indicated with XS to XL, those letters are way to vague to be able to know what fits.

And the humble bragging accusations on lolcow come from the fact that supposedly, a bunch of anons on threads I've hid (so hence the "supposedly") are legit humblebragging with posts like "I hate my body so much because I'm conventionally good-looking, petite with huge tits and ass and I get compliments all the time". And because of that, whenever someone will describe their body in a thread or post where it's relevant to ask for advice or something, they'll be accused of humblebragging and shitting on fat women or something. There's a weird logic behind it, and anons are confused as to who is showing off and who isn't since it's an anon imageboard. And people are too stupid to ignore the anons who actually humblebrag so it's has gotten worse and entire threads are getting derailed.

Q : "can a woman win a 1 v 1 fight against a man of the same weight?"
A : " fighting is more than just brute Force, it depends on skill and women can easily develop fighting skills"
Q : " so are men stronger than men ?"
A : " like in general ? I guess a woman can easily become stronger, faster, and more skilled than your average guy and with more effort they can surpass men in general if they have enough discipline they can lift so much more (specially with their lower body) "
Q : " why are some guys so insecure around stronger women?"
A : " just like some women don't like men who are too muscular guys don't like girls who are too muscular, and even more when gender roles are so defined, but we are in the 21th and some girls take protein powder or even inject roids so … I think we should just accept the fact that anyone can be stronger than you"

Because there is a limit to how long a car can run before there is a high incidence of mechanical failure, which requires expensive maintenance. So cars of reliable brands have a reputation of being able to function despite high mileage/use, but still have more risk of breaking down.

I've always wanted to know: Do gay men who aren't out yet feel uncomfortable when women have a crush on them?

I already consulted Google but couldn't find anything.

Anonymous 16771

Depends on the specific flaws, I think.
You don't need to hide or deny that those are facets of your person, but it's also probably true that most people would see it as red flag that someone lays out all their baggage very early on.

Discussing beyond the surface level (interests, background, general getting to know a person questions), like asking about values and weaknesses might help. Like asking someone their opinion or impression of topics related to your flaws, without going "so this hypothetical person that is not-me, who has trust issues, what do you think?" Maybe incorporating some discussion point like a current event or type of media that features that aspect you want to test?

It's a balancing act for sure, good luck anon.

More than uncomfortable I would say awkward. Uncomfy would fit more when a girl who is crushing is a close friend .

Anonymous 16780

You just add the genitive s (that’s its name) to the end of the word. There’s no rule that distinguishes ’s from s’; that’s overcomplicating things. The reason why it’s sometimes ’s and sometimes s’ is that some words end in -s by default. For example:

the shoes of the girl - the girl’s shoes
the shoes of the girlS (plural) - the girls’s shoes (also plural)

Now, "girls’s" looks terribly retarded, so the convention is to stick with "girls’".
For names it’s a little bit different, there’s disagreement on how to do it properly. A lot of people, me included, would refer to the shoes of James as "James’ shoes". However, there is a considerable amount of people that are spastic enough to complain that "James’" was indicating that it’s a plural stem word (like "girls") and go for "James’s" instead. Afaik both versions are perfectly correct, though. So just use s’ whenever the word ends in s and you’re good.

"-es" never is a possession marker.

At that level, people in the public know that they have a lot of people that have crushes on them, but they probably don't try to think about it since it would be overwhelming. Not because straight girls like a gay or closeted person, but because there's that disconnect between fans liking the persona they project vs. them as a person?

And even on the individual level, it depends like >>16776 who said they wouldn't be comfortable with such a thing, and you finding it flattering.

May I have pets for coin Khajiit?

Anonymous 16853

That’s pretty easy tbh. For each of these words, there’s the proper Latin plural that follows the rules of the Latin grammar and the English plural formed by adding an -s or -es. In technical writing, you always stick to the Latin plural, otherwise, you use the English plural. That’s why guitarists use plectrums, not plectra. That means that you’re totally fine talking about the cactuses that decorate your window and that you can tell the obnoxious know-it-all faggot that tries to correct it to cacti to fuck off since using the register of a scientific paper is considered inappropriate in a casual conversation. That’d be like saying felines instead of cats.

Well you play the hands seperately, and whenever you find a bit that you can't just play down, you take that portion and play it over jd over to recognize patterns, and then practise that portion with both hands.

When you did that to all the difficult parts, you play it all at once again and notice where you get stuck and then combine the playing with a rhythm/pattern that appears to you bit by bit.

It often ends up as a series of "checkpoints" that are particularly nice to play, with elaborated steps in-between.

I was such a kid and it was terrible and now I just never do that. When people, for instance, pronounce something wrong, I adapt their pronunciation when they're around in order not to "rustle their jimmies". But that can't be the idea.

Anonymous 22822

I usually question them in a way that leaves it open for them to correct me.
Like if I hear someone pronounce something the wrong way then I'll cock my head to the side and say something like, 'oh, I thought it was pronounced…[correct pronunciation]' and then continue with the conversation after allowing them to correct themselves (or me, if i was in the wrong). they'll usually admit that they didn't know how to say it. BUT, in some cases, you'll get people who will become really defensive, and in that case you've successfully gauged that they are not the type of person who likes to be questioned or feel 'criticized' and that you should handle further social interactions with that in mind.

Is there a term for a person who is dismissive of people who get offended about an issue he doesn't care about but when he himself is insulted/contradicted about an issue he does care about, he also feels offended and self-righteously so? I mean people who comment things like:

>people feel offended about everything these days haha

>lol people are so sensitive, I personally don't think this is offensive at all
>being offended doesn't make you right

But then turn around and post their own angry rants on social media about issues they feel strongly about and somehow that's considered okay in their opinion but when other people do the same, it's to be dismissed and mocked.

I've met two stutterers and neither was stupid even though that was the perception of them.
One is this cute grill I messed up trying to get to know. Some fillipino guy who was 54 was giving her a lot of attention and I tried to tell her he was sexually interested in her. She insisted he was her friend. Why would a 54 year old fillipino with a history of going after young, cute, white girls just want to be friends?
I got fired for "making up a sexual harassment claim" for reporting his creepy behavior. I got fired before this white nationalist I knew working there came back from vacation and I had him convinced before he left to beat his ass with me. We would have dragged him into the corner of the warehouse and dealt with his foreign ass. Girls like guys who protect them.
That young woman(22 years old) is practically a runaway. She moved away to escape a bad home situation and she needed that job. Every young woman that this fillipino has gone after has quit her job because of his escalating sexual harassment. The company refuses to fire him. She could end up homeless because of this guy and that pissed me off. I had a slim chance of dating her but I've seen what happens to homeless women and it isn't pretty. She will learn this lesson the hard way unfortunately.

I have this and it makes relationships absolute hell sometimes. I frequently get an urge to ask for reassurance, try to indirectly steer the discussion to topics that let me gather more info on whether he's still committed, ruminate on my partner's feelings constantly when I'm on my own, blah blah blah. What I started doing in my current relationship is that whenever I get the urge to do some maladaptive type of reassurance-seeking or pointlessly dwell on how he's feeling, I instead do something to reinforce the positive traits I have that attracted him to me in the first place. Say he was charmed by my love for making quirky electronic music, and idk, my compassionate nature. When I'm feeling blue and neurotic about him abandoning me, I know what to do: I can work on a new track or channel my compassion into reaching out to a loved one or finding good places to donate a bit to. I don't need to tell him or anything although it's cool if it comes up, it will show through the kind of person I am.

While excessive prodding might give me more information and rumination feels appealing in the moment, it doesn't make it less likely that I will be abandoned (it will in fact even increase the chance, since I'm being annoying and becoming more boring). Focusing on developing my character and interests, on the other hand, actually increases how much he wants to stay with me, and more importantly lets me be an actual person instead of dependent on someone else. Even if something happens and things don't work out, I will have spent the time constructively. This also applies to friendships of course. No one will want to abandon the coolest version of you who has interesting things going on all the time.

Those are really good, possibly even the best because you know for sure a company goes out of its way to have a regular upkeep procedure. Might even be a promise of low mileage at times, because they frequently swap out their cars. If its a school or a church, the vehicle will probably have the least mileage of all.

ok, first of all, yes, this is dumb. now with that is out of the way…

soooo, I never really cared that much about looks till in early college I heard a ton of insults about my looks.

I remember seeing the ID of myself and I looked so messed up, like a crack addict or something. This was at my fattest. I constantly felt unwell back then (was, like, 180 pounds and 5'6). I got to a slightly skinny weight for the first time in my entire life around 140, after living on my own for a while and I ended up getting so many comments about how old I look. There could be a random conversation and someone would make a jab at how old I looked. I got the "you look like someone's mom" comment constantly. People constantly disparaged me for looking like shit. I got "are you ill" comments from strangers. Apparently, losing weight didn't help.

So…it's been a few years and I have plateau'd at a slightly heavier 152. I workout more now. For some reason, I've gotten complete shock from people because they think I'm a high school. Again, in my area I'm very tall so it isn't that I'm petite.
I get this treatment from other people in their 20s too. Nurses slackjaw and say that I look 16 after seeing my birthday.
It has happened randomly 5 times in the past week…it's getting annoying.
I have never after the age of 16 been clocked as looking like a high schooler; people thought I was middle aged back then.

Is it possible that some people just look better at a very specific weight? What is happening? For so many years I had a dumb vain insecurity over looking old.
For some reason I just look kind of…cherubic now? Maybe not in a cute way. It's puzzling and I feel crazy. It wasn't like 140 was super skinny.

anon crack makes you really thin. In response to your question, your BMI went: 28.7, 22.7, 24.4

22 and 24 are both "healthy", so it's interesting that the lighter weight made you look older. I would say that being chubbier definitely does make you look younger, since teenagers normally put on a little weight to help with any final growth spurts/ general growth at the end of puberty. I'd say it's probably just fucked beauty standards that made people think you looked old (i.e. a healthy 20-something woman is old by virtue of being and looking over 20). The 'you look like someone's mum' comment could just be that a lot of 20 year olds are mums these days. It's always trippy to me that when I was a kid, I thought all mums were at least 30, but now I realise that they're only 30 by the time you're 8, which is also around the time I started thinking about that stuff. Idk, sorry for the ramble, enjoy looking young I guess, I sort of envy you but I can appreciate why it's confusing.

Do I need to get an std test if I'm a virgin? I keep hearing people say EVERYONE should get tested but I don't understand how I could test positive. The only information I can find online is stuff that dodges the question by saying "well um technically there are different definitions of virgin that might not count oral or anal so yeah a virgin can get one," I'm trying to ask for the case that you have had ZERO sexual contact, counting all forms of sex
Other than that, I've heard that you can get one if you do drugs or kiss or get a blood transfusion or if your mom had one when you were born, and none of those apply to me either. So why do people keep indiscriminately urging everyone, including me, to get tested? Why is it encouraged for "all adults/teens" instead of "all people who have sex"

Anonymous 121270

I think they say "all adults/teens" instead of "all people who have sex" because there will be some people who say, "Well, technically, I've only done oral/anal…" and not get tested when they actually could have an STD. Because, you know, people are ignorant.

On the movie Precious, the mother insists she couldn't have AIDS because they "never did it up the ass." Just an example of how people are misinformed about the transmission of STDS.

Anonymous 121274

What I mean is it's just easier to have a blanket sort of guidance rather than leave what counts as sex up to individuals.

You can get STDs without having had sex. If you are planning to have sex or have symptoms then it is a good idea but not really needed otherwise.

Anonymous 122093

Stop trying to date people based on surface-level interests. Date people who have the same morals, life goals, and priorities as you. Sure, surface-level stuff helps to start a conversation, but it literally doesn't matter what TV shows you each like.

I've posted before on CC about being on Bumble BFF but a lot of the ladies on there talked about anime on their profile. Maybe the dating side would be similar. I've heard shitty things about using tindr for dating vs hook ups, I would try a different app if you want a relationship. Maybe other anons can chime in about it

This is a good point but I think having similar taste in media allows you to explore those ideas in an accessible context. It also helps to make it easier to spend time together if you have similar interests or hobbies–you can bond over doing something you both enjoy

hi anons…is it normal to feel your throat/lungs/burn hurt and burn for a day or days after you work out a little? I ran for 1 minute yesterday and did 10 jumping jacks and I'm still in pain. A sore throat drop helped a little today though the feeling is incredibly unpleasant, it's like I'm recovering from an illness.

I do have asthma though it's getting really dumb trying to exercise every day and have this happen. I also am not fat (I used to be).

does this feeling of being in pain at barely any exercise go away after keeping at it?
I expect to feel some kind of burn…but my legs, arms feel just fine. It's my lungs and throat.

I had an IUD, because the pills didn’t help with my intense and irregular periods. Now, I just heard that women have A-spot which is supposed to be located between our cervix and bladder.
I’m worried that I just irreparably damaged the cervix with IUD and thus, won’t ever get to try A-spot.
I’m also frustrated that I heard about the existence of the A-spot too late, because it’s probably too risky to stimulate it with the strings hanging out, right?
Does A-spot even exist?
I mean, G-spot makes sense, since it’s connected to the clitoris, but I don’t understand A-spot.
(I would like to stimulate mine, if it exists, because I’m lonely and need a distraction from this shit life.)

A- spot doesn’t exist. G-spot isn’t a thing either. It’s all the clit, either directly or indirectly that is where females achieve orgasm.

That sounds exactly like a contact allergy. Allergies are really weird and some people live with food allergies for years because you can have only 6 cm of the small intestine be allergic to something while the rest of the body is fine with the same substance. You should discontinue and either give it away or better yet, throw it away.

Since I’m a lesbian (goldstar if it matters) I’m puzzled by one thing.
Is it true that straight women can become ”cock-drunk” and very much enjoy giving blowjobs and doing other degrading things? It doesn’t make any sense to me.
It’s like orgasming from seeing someone else eat chocolate, except it’s worse than that. You’re choking on a sweaty crusty skin tube, your eyes are watering, your mouth is full of bitter slime and pubic hairs, and your scrote talks to you like you’re a cheap prostitute. How can anyone enjoy that, let alone beg for it?

Anonymous 135359

It's about devotion and worship.
Think about yourself. Don't you fantasize about kissing a girl whole until you reach between her legs, rubbing your face against her, getting slimy as you watch/listen to her get more flustered, licking and sucking on her until she cums, smothering your face with her pussy and squishing you with her thighs? Wouldn't you get high/drunk thinking of how much you pleasured her and made her attached to you? It's just like that, except your partner is male and comes with some spoiled milk.
I‌ don't fantasize about this but my "crusty" moid does.

> You’re choking on a sweaty crusty skin tube

My pussy is sweaty and hairy too…so what. Just wash up if you're that conscious about genitalia. If you date a dirty moid that's on you tbh

>doing other degrading things

Degrading according to whom? Nothing is degrading if you are in love with your partner. It's degrading when you feel like he doesn't love you and you know he calls you slut/whore/etc in a disrespectful manner. It's not degrading when you're in a context and words like "slut" mean "needy/lustful/hungry for touch." The point is that those words are explicit/sexual so they help with the "high" of feeling lewd. I call my moid boyslut and he gets so flustered it's adorable.

Anonymous 135362

It's not that we enjoy doing it per say, it's more that we enjoy pleasing someone we love. There have been so many times I am compiling a grocery list while blowing him and viewing the whole thing as another boring chore instead of getting any sexual gratification off it.
There are also the more complex themes of what does it mean to be a social animal that requires approval from the tribe for survival (evolutionary wise) while being a modern woman who has been brainwashed from before birth to learn your place as a woman. Do I enjoy something because I enjoy it, or do I enjoy something because the patriarchy has rewired my brain to tell me I enjoy it? There's no true way to tell, but you can definitely gather hints from how mentally healthy a woman performing the action is. A woman who says she a free sexual being and proves this by taking home a new man every night yet has to be drunk to do it and is depressed and lifeless in her day to day life? She's either lying to us, or lying to herself. She doesn't want to do that, but she's been conditioned into believing that she has to, or else she will lose her place in the tribal hierarchy. Meanwhile a women who writes poems to little acclaim and some disgust at the subject matter yet takes walks daily and has a fulfilling social circle? That women is writing gross poems because she wants to.
So ultimately, we sexually please men while getting nothing in return rarely because it's sexually gratifying to us, and more frequently because we're either doing it as a form of self harm or as an act of service to someone we love.

I get it, yeah.
Do you have moments when you personalize his cock to the extent you cannot think of anything else other than how to please just this cock, and how no other cocks in the world could satisfy you, and you memorize every little detail of it, and how it feels inside you, and how it responds to you, and being so high on it that you could almost force him to give it to you and fuck you with it, ignoring the rest of his body and personality (for that moment)? That kind of ”cock-drunk” I mean.
I see. But why would he want to be blown to scratch an itch, so to say? He probably sees that you’re not crazy about it (but not repulsed either). It’s one thing I don’t get about scrotes, though. I would enthusiastically eat a girl out every time, and would probably expect her to do the same.

It's pleasurable to them and evolution has guided them to seek out sexual satisfaction above all else so it quashes any reluctance in their brain. Meanwhile, their cultural arrogance over women makes them feel like we owe them sexual satisfaction because we are their girlfriends and wives.

I can't know for sure, I've never been a man, but from what I've observed and questioned, it seems men's views on your sexual pleasure fall into four categories.
1) He know you're not having fun and he doesn't care. This guy sucks and is most commonly found in high school, college, and one night stands. If he does manage to find a wife, they end up divorcing because him not caring about her orgasm is only a symptom of an overall douchey, non caring personality.
2) Thinks you're having fun. Self centered enough that he never bothered to learn to read women's body language so he thinks if you aren't saying no, that it's a silent yes. If you ask for change directly, he'll usually jump to it, but his brain telling him how awesome sex is translates into him thinking that you're also having a great time.
3) Insists you're having fun. This sex positive, liberal guy is super weird and thankfully, kinda rare. He goes to strip clubs and makes the strippers tell him how much they love doing this and how empowered they are before he gives them a dollar. If you say you don't want to try bondage, accuses you of being sexually constipated and uses feminist language to bully you into doing what he wants. This guy can be an iteration of guy number one, but more often he truly believes that you need to be freed from yourself in order to have fun and he's going to be your messiah.
4) Actually cares. This guy is usually the grown up version of number two. Having been around the block a couple of times, he realizes that sex is a dance and so know when you're out of step. He'll be pounding away, close to cumming, and realize you're no longer moaning and he'll stop immediately to find out what's wrong. When you say you're not feeling it, he shuts everything down and you two ending up cuddling and talking with no further mention of sex or his needs. Unfortunately, this guy is usually snatched off the dating market before 23 and doesn't reappear until the divorces start happening in your thirties, but now has a couple of kids in tow.

Question–has anyone had longterm fatigue managed to overcome it? I was a very slow kid but back then I was obese (up until I was in college, I'm the skinniest in my entire life at 23 BMI now). However, losing weight didn't at all help.

Today? I woke up with my eyes feeling like they are exploding and black circles around them and incredibly exhausted with horrible neck/head pain. This is normal for me.

Normally, I can't even go out for hour an hour without feeling dizzy and incapable of intelligent speech. I feel so wired and fucked up by the time I get home.

I know for a fact I can feel better because years ago after an extremely strange day+night, I slept in and woke up feeling amazing and everyone I knew immediately noticed I looked so much younger and fresher instead of like "death" (which I heard constantly from these same people). I also snapped some photos and they were right–I looked so much better with my forever sunken black circles 100% gone. In fact, my speech disability went away and I was able to speak well for once and think of stuff to say on the fly.

Some days are better than others and rarely I do have very short periods of time where I feel decent. I haven't woke up feeling refreshed since that one time, though.

I assume it's probably just all in my head but I do feel like shit and I am not sure what to do. Already got basic blood tests done. I had a iron, zinc, and D deficiency in spite of eating foods high in all 3 constantly and I've been supplementing.

I do a lot of walking and weight lifting.

I have chronic fatigue and experience a lot of the same issues that OP has. For me something that helped was just accepting that I have a disability. Chronic fatigue is a disability, and once you accept that you can begin to work your life around it and ask for accommodations. A method I use is the spoon method, where I wake up and estimate how many "spoons" I have for the day. If I have three spoons, two goes to working, and one might go to taking a walk or getting groceries. This helps me plan my life with my energy levels in mind.
For the record, I have tried every supplement recommended to me, have gotten a clinical sleep study done, and have been having this issue for years.

In what way? Still trying to do things, workout, make money, etc.
I think even with it it's still very much possible to improve in small increments, though it is hard. Personally I'm trying to will myself into not deciding I just have CFS because I don't want to contribute unknowingly to small negative behaviors–I do agree about the time stuff and being realistic though. I've made optimizations to my life that have saved me time without skipping out on the important stuff.

Also I don't think there is anything really wrong with me. Just, sometimes I hate I had that one day I felt energetic and alive because it was so insanely different, that it was like waking up from a foggy years-long nightmare, and it made me think things could actually be better.
It'd suck if everyone just felt bad all the time and this is just life.

This definitely isn't in your head, this is a medical issue. The symptoms are vague enough that it could a bunch of things, but I can suggest where to start. The sleep fixing your issue sounds like it is a sleep issue. You may have something wrong with your nose, sinuses, or throat that is preventing you from sleeping deeply. It may be sleep apnea. If a doctor is too expensive at the moment, you can record yourself sleeping as well as download a sleep study app. Recording yourself will show how much you toss or get up, and the sleep study app might give you more details on which sleep levels you're reaching and for how long.

A vitamin deficiency might be the cause of your sleep issue. Try adding B12 and vitamin D and see if you see any improvement after a week.

If your healthcare is free, go see an ear, nose, and throat specialist and get referred for a sleep study.
