My most annoying bitch is a lot like >>10009962’s minus the colorful wigs, but with horrible “drag” makeup. She’s in her late 30s or early 40s but acts like a whiny 14 year old and almost exclusively wears shitty Taobao meme print dresses that are way too short on her so you can almost see her underwear when she bends over. She rarely wears bloomers and if she does, they look like weird satin diapers. I’ve literally had nightmares where she’s the only one who showed up to a meet-up I’m hosting and we run into my coworkers. Fucking mortifying.

This one girl in my comm cannot stop talking about herself. Every small meet that she attends, 90% of the table conversation ends up being her telling us all about herself. She says she’s in her late 20’s but she looks like she’s about 40, not sure if it’s because she’s fat and needs to drink more water or just bad genetics. Once she wore a high waisted JSK with back shirring but she’s so fat that the cinched waist part sat in the middle of her boobs, mashing them down like pancakes. She loves to talk about how she’s poly and how SOOOOOOOO GAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY she is and how girls flirt with her and she goes on dates all the time. In fact, she’s soooooooo gaaaaaaaayyyyy that men are, like, eww gross (except she’s married to a cis man. I think he might be disabled due to an illness or something?)

Just a small heads-up they aren't poofy unless worn with a petticoat. I doubt they had petticoats beneath them when being stolen.

Anyways, to answer your question without jokes. I would assume they are stolen the same way as most people steal clothes. By fitting them and wearing them underneath their own clothes, or by grabbing them and when you think no one looks run out of the store so that when they notice it they're already too late to stop you. If I understand correctly they wheres stolen in-store, not at a booth at a con anyways. Maybe if it was during the con they timed it like that so the store had low staff to look out (thanks to some being at the con)?

I just can't understand why. They scream black lolita's are equally good in lolita and racism should stop, then make a black people only event. Imagine the exact same thing with white people instead of black and people would loose their mind. Or say Asian only and they probably complain about Asians being xenophobes again.

What's wrong with allowing people of any race? How are you gonna fight racism by only allowing people of one race to come? Isn't that the exact behaviour you're trying to fight? Is it more of this "you can't act racist to black people because some other white people not you oppressed us for our skin colour, and now you have to bear the consequences and say sorry too because they don't oppress you even tho you have nothing to do with first white person that did do bad stuff to me and haven't done anything wrong to me.

The idea is that 90% of society is for white people, by white people, and says "fuck you FOR being a minority." God forbid they have one event for themselves that you aren't invited to. What the fuck does it matter to you? Go to any other predominantly-white event, and just let them have something for themselves.

This. Idk I'm not even black but I think it would be cool to see a large group pic of black lolitas. Plus they get to share a lot about things the general community doesn't discuss much like dressing for your skintone, styling your hair for lolita if you have 4c curls, etc. There's a lot of white lolitas who can get advice each other very easily. I'm Hispanic, my comm is hispanic and we can help each other with things like introducing lolita to Catholic Family and how to deal with the weather where we are. Surely it's not hard to see why black lolitas could enjoy meeting up together and getting more specific tips from each other.

Reminds me of the time I went to a meeting for a group called "Awareness of Black Artists" or something similar. They screamed at me and turned me away at the door. I'm not even white.

Sure, the general normie community still has racists within it, but can you provide instances of significant racism within our community (with proof, anecdotal "evidence" isn't legitimate), we've absolutely seen the odd racist here and there, naturally cute being one of them, but that's not by any means common. If anything I'd argue that racism toward non-poc is the only significant racism our community is facing right now.

This. There are exceptions ofcourse. But most of the "racist" stories about black lolitas where obviously fake, or people not getting put on a pedastal and blaming racism before anything else.

Also, complaining about too little representation when the amount of black lolitas is simply smaller than white or Asian ones is kinda dumb imho. Very few people filter black lolitas out. They simply exist less so they'll be seen less.

There’s an an age player in mine that the mods seem completely oblivious about. They’ve made it completely public on their Facebook profile (that they use to associate with lolita) so it’s not exactly a secret if you were to spend 2 seconds vetting. I’m not sure how the mods would react to being warned about this person so I’ve just been making a note to not attend any meet they go to

Luckily in my area we have two comms, one that includes other jfashions and one that’s just lolita and they’re not in the one for strictly lolita, so at least I can avoid them there

And technically you can join even if you aren’t black, it’s not like forbidden or anything

I rescind what I said in another thread about the way this was organised being trashy. If it was organised in the group for black lolitas, then the event completely makes sense and there's nothing wrong with it. It's not that different to if lolitas in a gamer lolita group went to E3 together, or a handmade group had a sewing sleepover. It's within what the specialty group was for ace they're all sharing something they have in common that the rest of the community might not care about. The other anon who is being really defensive about the whole thing sounds like they have a chip on their shoulder and maybe some FOMO. I'm sure they have their reasons for being a bit of a reactive bellend, but I don't think they're really worth paying attention to if they're going to sperg about the NYC comm. I hope the black lolitas have a nice time and take some cool pics.

>> No.10012494

>>10012484
Not all POC groups face the same challenges in the fashion, so it would be hard to focus the event, but it sounds like it could be a good time. Theme it around it "minorities in lolita fashion", let several people do like 5 minute presentations on a related topic of their choosing for an hour or so. Have a coord contest based around dressing in a way that highlights your culture without being ita. Highlight indie brands run by minorities. Have a tea party with foods from every continent, and have like some dancers or musicians from different cultures. Any lolita of any race is encouraged to attend, just the event itself highlights the contributions and experiences of POC within the fashion. Have a photographer who knows how to take good pics of POC, because this can be surprisingly hard if you're dark skinned. I'd go to that event.

We can be a little nitpicky and gossipy at times but I genuinely love my comm. I feel like everyone makes an effort and I'm very grateful for the friends I've made.

Funny you mention the gaming thing, there was a recent controversy where men got super fucking angry because there was a "women's only" panel for League of Legends and they just kept spouting the same bullshit "segregating us isn't going to stop the problem!!" "this is SEXISM!!!" just refusing to accept that other people have to deal with bullshit and that they want to discuss the problems with others who truly understand.

Let people have their own spaces, women get harassed by men in video games, black lolitas probably get get harassed by randoms on the street, not necessarily from people in the community.

My comm used to have a sissy and an agp who both had fetish-related pics publicly visible on their profile AND dressed like shit/didn’t even wear lolita, but whenever someone PMed the mods about them they’d be ignored or told to stop assuming the worst and be more open minded. Fortunately our one non-shitty mod eventually stepped in and got rid of them.

>Synthetic leather still has child labour.
>There is also leather from animals that did life happily. In fact, that leather is higher quality just like healthy happy people tend to have nicer skin. Then there is also the leather from meat and milk cows, and next to that is roadkill leather also a thing, altrough I doubt that would be involved in these specific bags as it has a scarred appearance. If you care about the source, maybe inquire about it instead of commenting this shit on all their bag related posts. There are way too much sources to say all leather is bad.
>Real leather lasts way longer, which is not only nicer for the buyer, but also means less replacement is needed which means less has to be produced which means less need for doing the child labour and causing the environmental problems.

Chances are the leather produced is not in the best conditions for the animal and the child worker.

Hmm, 200€ isn’t that bad for ethically sourced leather shoes. Not that I would buy them personally. I’m thinking an ethically sourced leather bag would start around ~375-400€, that’s just a guess since I never owned a leather bag, let alone an ethically sourced one.

The vast majority of leather is a byproduct of the meat industry. I have never heard of a cow being killed for its skin but it wouldn't be financially sound. You would have to raise the animal for years and the amount you spent in resources would be less than what you made on leather. The people in the video that one person was referring to were probably killing a cow for Eid or perhaps they are just horrible sadistic people.

Even China buys a lot of raw leather hides from European meat markets (so much so that some tanneries in Italy are having trouble getting enough hides). Alligator leather is even more eco friendly than cow leather because every piece of the gator is used, down to the toenails and eyeballs. Nothing is wasted.

Don't buy leather products from Bangladesh or Pakistan. But don't buy other things from there either. Their working conditions are terrible.

There are many ways to tan leather and one particular bad and very toxic way that people love to talk about. Of the multiple types of chrome tanning, only that one is really bad, the rest are fine and are far more popular because they don't poison the tannery employees. It's also much easier to filter the water from a chrome tannery than from a chemical plant such as one that is making plastics for pleather products.

Even if every person on Earth became a vegetarian we would still have farmed animals for pet food. I've been a vegetarian for a long time and I know many vegetarians who work with leather. I even know one freegan, who picks up roadkill, tans it herself, and turns it into accessories. My stomach wouldn't be strong enough for that.

Deer hides from New Zealand are another great example. These animals are free range, live happy lives with one bad day at the end. The meat is sold, the hides are sold overseas and used by many designers, and anything left over is turned into pet food.

This. If people are going to be dicks about leather, they better stop buying fast fashion too, all of it. Children regularly burn alive in those fucking factories, and if they aren't, they're forced to work sixteen hours a day, seven days a week.

Could be correct. I know New Rocks gets their leather from local farms where the animals are treated well. They even used to lists said farms on their website. Their bags are around 400-500EUR or so. Funny, a shoe is more work than a bag and the amount of leather needed won't change much. Wonder where the difference comes from.

I'm no vegan an I love myself some good leather and meat. But I also don't mind vegans in itself. I just mind people behaving bothersome to others because of their believes (no mater if they are pro or against vegan), especially when they don't have done any research or have only looked at stuff that supports their side. I'm actually open for neutral conversations, both sides (vegan and non vegan) have some good points to make. You seem pretty respectful. Kudos to you.

>>10014537
Still there is a difference between talking by product and ethically sourced. There are places where they treat their animals badly also produce meat. Those animals will deliver much lower quality leather, but it's much cheaper to abuse tons of cows than to give them a nice life. Part of the reason leather is cheaper from there.

>> No.10014790

>>10014537
Also, a lot of western fashion brands, including high fashion ones and fast fashion ones, are known to import leather from these places where animals are treated badly. For me it's mainly a care as I care about the quality I must admit. Most cheaper leather you buy here isn't great leather.

What even. That is a terrible metaphor. Anyway, I used to think that way until I entered the real world where that shit doesn't really work. Just because you believe in that and "respect" others doesn't mean they're gonna respect you, or share you belief for that matter. Not to mention, what if the other person doesn't see "respect" the same way you do?

I'm sorry your comm was disappointing but it sounds like you need to connect with other people.

Unfortunately they're not really doing anything inherently wrong, they have the tight to make a Facebook groups and host events just like anyone else. Only thing that can really be done is calling them out on their most embarrassing behaviour.

I don't care about sjw shit but i'm a lonelita. Mostly because even non sjw lolitas are cringe as fuck.

>> No.10018819

I’m a lonelita not by choice, everyone moved on from lolita other than the itas and while I do miss meets I don’t miss people complaining about their mental health or weird shit in general, mostly itas just talking on and on about random shit

It’s fine, sorry for responding in an angry manner. I wish it were possible to put everything aside but I don’t think either side will budge. One side feels like they can’t forgive and forget and the other is obsessed with preserving their egos.
>>10018798
Yeah, that is definitely true. I just find it very childish and unprofessional especially considering these are all grown women working in professional fields but they can’t seem to transfer that same behavior into running communities. I wish everyone could just be friends again or at least cordial to eachother without anyone making callouts. I feel like if it gets called out it’ll turn into even more of a dramafest because the secondary community will just double down on making more bullshit.

Thank you anons for the advice though. I appreciate someone just willing to listen without it being biased.

the comm hasn't been segregated, it's literally one event.
would you really want to go to an event that was created for the sharing of experiences that you know nothing about, having lived life as a non-black person?
>imagine being this entitled
would you barge into a fun event organized for the socializing of new mothers? lesbians? goths? plus-sized lolitas?
the answer is no. no one wants to spend the entire time explaining things to you that you don't resemble/understand/have experience with when they just want to have a good time with others that share a particular and rare combination of identity&hobby.

I would have loved to go if I knew about it and I hope there is another, larger one planned in the future. you didn't miss anything because you wouldn't have gained anything. you'd have seen this as a positive and lovely idea for gathering if you really cared about race relations as a whole, instead of proving that you're a paranoid defensive ball of hot air.

Can you convince can't forgive and forget to tap into their inner self-righteousness and be the bigger people? If it's bothering you this much, it's got to be bothering other people and hurting the comm as a whole. I don't know if there's anything you can do about ego.

That's all nice and dandy, but they where talking about anon becoming lonelita because of such people in her comm and other anons got all mad that it was their fault for not changing those SJW peoples mind.

Personally I like my comm in general. There are a few cringey people but that's a small enough group I can easily avoid them. But I guess you had less luck. Doesn't matter on this subject tho. The point is that those people where not exactly going to change and people get all mad at her for not making things work with a bunch of SJW.

anon you replied to from >>10017320
I was in agreement that she should leave her comm. Not sure why people misread or thought I was for the other side?

Like I said... no one is forcing her to be there. I don't get why so many people continue to go to meets if they keep having bad experiences?

Different anon but my first three meets sucked because I didn’t know anyone and kept getting stuck at the newbie/reject table, since I wasn’t assertive enough to sit down anywhere else uninvited in the seating chaos. Three high teas surrounded by people nonstop whining about not being able to afford brand, about the comm being elitist, whining to the staff about the food, about how everyone who doesn’t agree with their political stance is literally hitler, etc. Fortunately I was able to talk to a few other people after each meet before we all headed home and made some friends that way, so now I get invited to sit with them without having to elbow anyone else out of a seat. I’m glad I didn’t give up after the first few times but damn those first meets sucked. At least now I know who to avoid.

if your comm has a reject table, then they are elitist.


You sound like an elitist yourself. This commentary reads like something out of a teen romcom.

Lolita comms are not kindergarten classrooms. You don't have to hang out with people you don't like.

No, but I know what anon means. The well dressed girls tend to sit together and the socially awkward it’s cluster with their kin. It’s like a self-segregated reject table. If you’re too intimidated to sit with the better dressed Lolita’s you tend to gravitate towards the rejects because you know they won’t reject you.

That said, I never got stuck at the reject table. I always made sure to sit next to people who I figured I’d have better conversations with. The girls in my comm are all pretty friendly so I never worried about not fitting in when I was new, despite not being very well dressed. Now I dress way better and I still have nice meaningful conversation with those same people. The type of people who never improve their style are usually the ones who are never assertive enough to talk to or engage with the better dressed folk, so they end up staying at the reject table for all eternity or before they drop out for the next cool weeb fashion/hobby to gain momentum.
