How can I cut my own boobs? This is a serious question.
Some years ago there was this gull who got a breast reduction and she went from saggy big tits to an A cup. She said that her insurance covered the procedure.
Ever since, I've been wanting to get rid of my boobs very badly. My chest is fucking big and it really affects the way I wear lolita. I look really stupid. I hate myself.
In my country, there's no way my insurance would cover that, unless I had cancer or something. At this point, I don't care if I get a masectomy. I really, really want my boobs gone even if I stop having nipples (no use for them).
I'm probably crazy as fuck. But I'm long gone past that.

>> No.9263292

>>9263286
If you can get a physiotherapist to back up that your boobs are prohibitively affecting your back or is causing you discomfort and pain regularly (you could easily bullshit this) then generally you can get a breast reduction paid for by government or insurance for that reason.
Just make sure that you go on and on about how it gives you back and hip pain and how it is always there and never goes away and they will buy it most of the time

I think I may be the one you're talking about, I posted a few years about it and even posted a before/after photo. There was no way I was fitting into lolita with a 150cm+ chest. Most people getting reductions don't go 100% flat like I did.

If you live in America, they'll cover 100%, even if you don't have super large tits. For other countries, I don't know. I know I was fully prepared to save or get a loan out to get mine gone, it was affecting everything in my life so much. Don't give up, I suggest what >>9263292

friend has had a lot of struggles with relationships in the past so even if my gf is supportive im pretty much on the fence. i know friend has been interested in me before (as well as my gf), but im not sure hes emotionally stable enough for no-strings-attached sex, and even if he was i certainly am not anymore.
im trying to just wait it out and see if its a fluke or if its legit stuff im feeling, but every time i can help him and be a good and supportive friend i get the fuzzies. hes been opening up to me a lot and also weve been talking about some more shippy cosplays we want to do, and even if we did before too its more of a concrete making plans thing now. especially the ot3 we were gonna do with my gf is something im ridiculously excited about, just because it would be super cute and a good excuse to be kinda touchy with both of them.

i guess im good with being his friend for now, but id be lying if i said i havent fantasised about him, or him and my gf both. oh well.

Speaking from experience that I had it done 100% for free then yes, they will. Under both insurances while I was looking that I had they offered to cover the entire cost. It just takes a little extra work if you have smaller sized tits to go to a doctor to complain about back pain.

i started college this year, im doing an art course that mixes with fashion students so i figured i would find atleast someone who shared an interest in j-fash but alas

> all the guys in my course are /fa/ types (which desu i cant complain about bc they do dress well) or very campy guys from the fashion course

dont get me wrong everyone is nice enough for the most part but i guess in my head i had a sort of dumb fantasy that i would be with 'my people', ive never had friends who i share interests with and i got my hopes up. Ive only made 1 real friend so far and ive been talking to this one girl alot who is a bit weeby, but she knows j-fash and has been japan multiple times, we have alot in common but i get slight elitist vibes from her even tho she dosnt wear j-fashion as such, just cyber/nu-goth type stuff.

I had the same stupid idea. I thought that when I went to uni I'd meet more like minded people. But I'm super retarded, and decided to study physics. I love art, music, etc. but all I have in common with my classmates is "yep....math is pretty cool...." Before I started school I had 3 friends, and now in my senior year I have zero.

Since you just started, maybe you'll get more comfortable with those around and make lots of friends, Anon. Good luck!

Making assumptions about people like that is exactly what is preventing you from making friends. You know who wound up having similar interest as me in college? All of the people who seemed normie or who I would not assume they had any interest in weeb or video games. Try actually having a conversation with these people instead of just writing them off because you're bitter. Friends don't instantly flock to you, you need to go out of your way to get to know people. Stop being shallow

I have to agree anon, not everyone talks about their hobbies and interests in the first conversation you have with them, especially non-mainstream ones. . And even if NO ONE likes j-fash, if you can find common ground with people and make friends, they'll be excited about what you're excited about. I got into all kinds of stuff in college that I wouldn't have otherwise found out about if I'd just written everyone off the first few months.

>I'm living alone for the first time in almost 7 years.

I feel loneliness, but not sadness. I'm not sad because I'm happy I can partake in my stupid hobbies again. It's been years since I felt comfortable watching an anime for my evening entertainment. I'm watching Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei currently. I'm happy I can spend my evenings painting my nails, online window shopping, watching anime and eating snacks, blaring industrial music, and being the recluse I normally am. Without someone making me feel terrible for it, expressing their disinterest in anything I do, and without making me feel terrible I don't enjoy a rousing social life at the local dives.

I'm very lonely, but it's not worth the unhappiness I felt constantly being put down for what I enjoy. People aren't worth losing what makes us happy.

Stop being a fucking doormat and tell her to get the fuck out.

Rent out your room to someone who isn't a total piece of shit so that you're getting the money to buy yourself more brand.

This is YOUR life for YOU to take control of. The entire situation was brought about on your own terms, and unless you get a damn grip and take control of the situation, it'll just keep coming back. Stop running away from situations just because they're "scary" or "overwhelming". You're an adult, not a child. Wipe the snot from your nose and dry your tears.

She can stay at her bfs or your parents or maybe she saved enough money to get her own place idk but seriously kick her out asap legally so nobody can say shit about it.

Alcohol can turn a relationship upside down. They were a very nice person originally. They got involved in alcohol within the last 3 years of our relationship because of a job at a dive bar.

In a similar situation except my boyfriend went from having "aspirations to get a college degree" to working retail part time jobs to not working at all. His parents were supposed to pitch in for our living expenses but they only do so every once in a while. The only way for me to get him to even apply for some shitty part time jobs was for me to get drunk and go off on him about how I can't afford my own hobbies and comfort because i'm paying for his rent and living expenses while he siphons money from his parents for drugs and fun. He cried and told me he would "try" (the tired excuse) but drunk me understood that was all just manipulation and I just laughed in his face. He finally saw my point (after countless other sober arguments about this just saying) and said he wanted to get himself together and that all the points i made were 100% correct. I'm still in the process of seeing how serious he is about getting a job; he hasn't had any call backs yet so I need him to apply more and stay on the places that hes applied to's asses or he's fucking out.

As someone who's been on the other side of this (I was unemployed for about 2 years while now-ex supported me) I cannot overemphasize that I wish he had ditched me at the beginning of that period. While I'll always be grateful for his support of that time it was shit city to be dumped as soon as I got a job because he finally felt he could and the amount of resentment that had built up on his side. Don't do that to yourself.

I dunno if I would've/could've gotten work had he dumped me way the fuck back when but it was a waste of time for both parties for him to stick it out just because he felt bad about "kicking me while I was down" (his words).

And oh yeah, you bet your ass we fed hard as fuck. Especially me! I made sure to feed extra hard to tilt the shit out of our top laner who was already struggling in his matchup due to being forced to pick something he was unfamiliar with due to my faggot ass.

Oh, by the way, I made sure to report him after the game for calling me an "uneducated, down-syndromed nigger" when he went 10/2/15 but we lost the game because I refused to ward baron or go to any other lane XD

I think he said he was on his promos, too! Lmaooooooo

He still encourages me to do what i want (aside from him wanting me to sell costumes) but he just says he's "finding himself" when i ask why he won't call up some of his contacts he's made. My brother works for Chase and he can probably help him out too (bf was a Finance major with a business minor) but he just won't take the extra step.

I called his parents last night and they tell me they're fed up with this shit too and that it's time for him to grow up (apparently his dad had been giving him money for utilities and food the past two months, but he never told me.)

I just think he's scared of the outside world, but at the same time tonight i'm going to tell him he has until New Years to get his shit together. One of my friends has a roomie who is moving out, and i can have dibs if i need to leave his sorry ass

Whoa, whoa, if you're serious, he's beyond help. Who spends all their time playing LoL and gets stuck at Silver 5? I didn't do shit and got Silver 3 back when I played. Does he even try?!

On a more serious note, trying is the key here. There has to be an attempt. The part about him telling you to sell your stuff to make rent is the human garbage part. What happens when the rent is paid? You're not gonna spawn more stuff like a cosplay Broodmama. Your rent still needs to be paid and now your shit is gone.

If you want, you can be supportive of him and help him apply for jobs or at the minimum, volunteer somewhere. Do paid work or free work, but it's completely unfair to do jackshit while other people are footing the bill. Failing to get into gold isn't going to help progress him in any way. Shape up or ship out.

Even if he is depressed, all the pills and the professionals in the world aren't going to do anything if he doesn't at least try. I say this as someone's who's depressed as shit.

This is also true. No matter how depressed we are, nobody is responsible for our actions but ourselves. The only person responsible for his unemployment is himself, and he is equally responsible for the consequences of his actions. (Which very well could be losing a place to live and a loved one.) He should remember gaming is an expensive hobby. As far as selling your costume, remind him that the bill will still be due long after the costumes are sold. Remind him that is only a short solution and you need a long-term resolution.

In the end, I understand feeling bad for him if the worse has to happen, but he is responsible, not you. We reap what we sow.

I've been there and am still there. However, just because you're in some shit doesn't obligate other people to trade away their happiness and financial well-being for your sake. It's one thing to know you're shit, but keep trying. It's another thing to tell others who are already putting in effort to put in additional effort because you won't. Depression can help explain, but it doesn't justify. If he wants help, he has to try to get help.

So was he actually using this money for food and utilities or was he lying to you both and spending the money on himself (while demanding that you sacrifice your own hobbies to keep yourselves afloat)?

If the latter he went from potentially salvageable to literal human garbage that you should not be giving another chance.

Sorry, this might be a bit longer story.

I'm the wallflower of our friend group. People tend to like me and never have anything bad to say about me but in the group I'm always left behind. I had really good friend, we did pair cosplays together and went to cons together but after she got us two into bigger friend group. Me and my friend live in another town than the rest of our friends but she always gets invited to sleepovers/etc and I'm not. I've tried to ask if I'm not liked but I'll always get "you're so pretty and kind, of course we like you!" but I'm still rarely invited to anything. And if I am I'm left alone since everyone else got their besties in the group and I'm just a kinda a friend. So now there's going to be con next month and me and my friend were supposed to stay at the same hotel but she's not sure if she can come because she's been feeling ill. It's nothing serious but she's been feeling down and tired. Everyone in our friend group loves her and they're asking her all the time if she's okay, if she needs anything, etc. They even went there to cook for her. I've helped her too, but at the same time I've been really jealous that everyone else is so worried about her and when I was really sick last summer, no one cared. Con is soon and I don't want to pay the hotel alone but I'm starting to feel that I don't want hang out with my friend either. If she comes I' going to be left behind again and I'm going to be bitter. Maybe going alone would be better...

As a wallflower to a wallflower, please don't take it to heart. Often times interpret the very qualities that make us wallflowers as independence. They don't see us when we are sick because, 'I figured you would call if you needed anything.' They don't invite you because they don't want to bother you. Alternatively, they don't invite you because they are hanging out with their close friends that you have not made. There's not much to solve that other then seek out closer friends.

There's this girl who is my friend. I mentioned her last thread. She's not a lolita, but the "always wanted to try it, but it's so costly!!!!!" kind of girl. Wich for me is bullshit because it's not like I have that much money either.

So I was talking with my actual lolita friend again and she came near us, again. I was talking with her about buying brand from lm and y! for cheap. Then this massive ita starts talking and interrupting me.
I'll greentext it
>ANON! BUT I KNOW WHERE TO BUY CHEAP DRESSES! It's very easy and cheap!!!!!!!!!!
>...okay?
>IT'S FOR REPLICAS ANON!
>I don't care about replicas!!!! they are so cheap and they're the same!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just forgot the name okay??? I'll give you the name of the website later anon!!!! it's the best!!!!! but I haven't bought anything yet!!!!!
>I KNOW SOOOO MUCH ABOUT LOLITA TEEHEEE I just want to avoid being an ita!!!
>...okay
then, this happened yesterday
>eadgerly comes to me
>ANON I REMEMBERED THE NAME OF THE WEBSITE
>I'LL TELL YOU LATER THOUGH TEEHEE

I'm just tired of this. I fucking hate replicas. I fucking hate someone suggesting to me to buy replicas because they're cheaper. Of course they are, they're shit.
For god's sake. Sometimes I don't even have money to buy food but I still manage to get some brand.

We have some classes toghether and she keeps correcting me about every single thing. I try to do an assigment in a certain way, and she comes and says NO ANON THIS WAY, HAVE YOU TRIED THIS. I swear she also talks by yelling. I'm a quiet non comfrontative person and I really don't know how to tell her to shut the fuck off. Oh, and everytime I try to correct her she insists she's right.

I just can't. Good thing I'm tolerant and still respect her because if she suggested buying replicas instead of brand to any other lolita (interrupting and trying to correct them) they would had bullied her to no end.

When you cosplay from anime you can't look just the same as the character anyways, but how important is it to have similar face as the actor of the character you're cosplaying?

Getting the look down is more important than looking exactly like the actor. For Buffy Summers you probably can't make your face turn into Sarah Michelle Gellers, but you can use makeup to put focus on traits the two of you share. For example her eyes are something you can relatively imitate with clever make up. If you cosplay Edward from Twilight you don't need to spackle yourself with contouring, just focus on getting stuff like eyebrow shape and the way stage makeup is used right. In that case, Robert Pattinson has a very flat skintone. No blush whatsoever. Maybe use eyeshadow to pronounce your brows. Stuff like that. Also look at how the actors/characters makeup is actually done on set. Is it obvious? Is it a no-makeup makeup? Signature style?

This was a bit scrambly, sorry! Hopefully it still made sense.

There's no need in trying to imitate an ideal you can't possibly reach; I'll never have Benedict Cumberbatch's cheekbones, no matter how much makeup i spackle on my face. And that will still only look good in photos with the right light and certain angles.

My boyfriend is normie as fuck, his main interests are sports and working out, but I've managed to find at least a couple "nerdy" things he likes. It won't always be obvious what he might like, but don't totally lose hope. For example, I would have thought more mature, "realistic" anime and shooter type games would have been my guy's thing, but it turns out he loves Studio Ghibli and has gotten pretty into Dragon Age. Try a number of genres, preferably the various "classic" that are known to be generally well-reviewed, and see what sticks, if he's down.

Additionally, maybe try to show a more active interest in his shit that you don't care about, too. Part of what made my boyfriend more receptive to trying anime was that I started watching basketball with him and did my best to enjoy it. I still don't give a shit about it, it's not like I've changed my interests to suit him, but it was kind of fun to learn a little about something new and sharing something he likes. If you make an effort, he will probably appreciate it and want to do the same.

I'm horrifically ugly and I'm 23 and I honestly haven't ever had a friend since early high school.

I've been browsing /cgl/ on and off since I was 16-17 and I've always really been interested in cosplay and j fash and lolita, but because of how anti-social I am, I've never seen the point in buying lolita or cosplaying.

I've always wanted to go to a con and cosplay as a character I like but I've never had anyone to go with. Well, I got a bf last year who is also into anime and he would be willing to go with me for sure.

But I'm going to feel like a fucking loser. I'm old, short (5'2), fat (115 lbs), ugly (like retardedly ugly) and all of the characters I'm capable of cosplaying and excited about cosplaying are super cute (pic related). I wish I had female friends to do a group cosplay with at the very least, I feel like I'm going to look like a total loser going with my bf who doesn't even want to cosplay. I've managed to talk myself out of it already desu.

I'll probably never end up going to a fucking convention or wearing lolita (I almost made the jump in 2012 and almost blew like $700 on a cute BTSSB coord) so I really need to stop browsing this board.

>tfw they make me feel ugly no matter how pretty my coord is

Wristcuffs are a thing, but even then I'm constantly pulling them down because I'm afraid the marks will be noticeable. I feel like they immediately take me from "normal girl wearing pretty clothes" to "mentally disturbed freak dressing up to cope with her deep-set issues." I'm afraid that people notice them on a day-to-day basis and it leads them to make judgments. Especially since they're from a while ago and I don't actively seek to hurt myself anymore.

It's the same thing that's going on in female-dominated fandom spaces as well. When I got into fandom it was a free haven where you could embrace your sexuality without (or with relatively little) judgement, and now I have people yelling at me for shipping large age gaps and writing fic of questionable morality.

One of my fave artists took all their stuff down because she was harassed by these new-puritans ):

I don't talk politics with them because I know they generally oppose mine. The whole thing started because I made a joke about "well at least I get to keep my guns" because I didn't expect Trump to win. It's all spiraled out of control from there since they took that as me saying "I care more about my guns than LGBT people," which couldn't have been further from the truth or I'd have just voted Trump to start with.

Like I said, I can't figure out what I did wrong, their "explanations" of what I did wrong are weak and demonstrably untrue at best, so I'm worried this is something bigger going on in their lives and I'm just taking the heat for it because it's convenient and easy to take it out on me. That's not fair to me in the slightest but I want to help them anyway if that's what's going on because that's how friends should be with one another.

That's probably it. This election in particular left a lot of people on both sides super salty, and if they're still worked up about it they might be taking out their frustrations on you.
Have you confronted them and told them how this makes you feel yet?

I've tried to. I got mocked ruthlessly for talking about "my feewings" by one person (which is fucking rich because he's FTM and posts that "men should be allowed to cry" and male body positivity bullshit all the time, but fuck that guy anyway). The other, who I actually care about, basically got in a huff about how we've both said things that could be seen as defensive and mean and that it meant we couldn't be friends right now as a result. He told me "good luck, enjoy your guns," and then went on a full-on social media slash-and-burn wherever we were previously connected (deleted me on FB, remade his tumblr, even unfriended me on a fucking calorie counting app).

It's the second person I'm worried most about. The former is a hypocritical piece of shit who treats the latter horribly too, but the latter has told me "well if he just admits he did things wrong and tries to be a better person I can forgive him." Apparently I don't get that leniency, despite never once questioning his stated gender identity like that other piece of shit did.

Why do you need these fucking friends? At least the second one seems half-reasonable but by god, that first dude is such a douchebag. Neither of them seem worth your time.

If you really are going to try and fix things with the second guy, sit him down at a table and explain to him how much being friends with him means to you, and how you'd don't want something as shitty as politics to ruin that. Swallow your pride and admit you were wrong to say those things, even though you weren't. And bring up that double standard if you feel forced to.

I've been in a similar situation myself, and that's what I did to try and fix it. I really hope this works out for you.

I still have that reflex to protect myself with my arms/hands whenever my father gets angry and close to me. He had (still has now but less) control issues and used to beat us whenever we talked back/had sibling fights/did something that got on his nerves... and especially when my mom was not there. Today I realized I also have that reflex when someone put their hand on my head (to "pat" me or whatever). Sad memories. He isn't that bad really, he's not an awful father either but it'll forever hurt me a bit inside.

The first one gave up on cons, which is great because I hate him. I don't need to be lectured about my "fragile masculinity" *and* lack of masculinity by a fucking trans man.

The other one I owe a huge debt of gratitude to because he was there for me when I was in a really dark place and he personally had every reason to just shove me further into the hole for the things I had done to him, but he didn't, and I've strived to be a loyal, helpful friend ever since. He's also how I met basically every local friend I have, so if I lose him, I basically end up completely socially isolated. There is something at stake for me here personally as a result of that, but more than anything I feel like if I gave up on him it would eat at me for the rest of my days, so I'm going to try and keep trying until I can't try anymore to fix this and help him if I can.

I really wish I could just sit him down and try to talk this out with him, but he and everyone who knows both of us are now ignoring me and I get the feeling he's gonna try to avoid me at cons too. I don't even know what to apologize for, since nobody will fucking tell me what exactly I'm doing that's so incredibly, unforgivably wrong.

No, he is a bad father who needs to keep his hands to himself. Just because he has "control issues" doesn't mean you should accept his shitty behaviour.

You're not a prude; it's a common concern.

However, as long as he's painstakingly slow about the prep beforehand, it SHOULD be fine. Question is if you think he's patient.

Either way, every relationship is (no pun intended) give and take. So if you're willing to do this for him, he should be willing to make some sacrifice for you, whatever you decide that may be.

Just don't let him guilt you into it. There's nothing wrong with you not wanting to or deciding not to.

You did something wrong, but since you can't pinpoint what it was it you're going to have a hard time fixing it. Maybe you might have some growing up to do and later on you can reflect on what it was. Next time you see your friend at a convention you can discuss it if it feels like a good time.

Maybe it was politically related, I'm not sure. The past American election was very controversial in that most voters had really unfortunate options. It was a lose-lose situation. If you went with the republican party I could see why they'd avoid you, but you didn't; you chose third party. Perhaps they feel that your vote could have had a stronger impact with the democratic candidate. If that's the case, they could be jumping to conclusions that you don't care about basic human rights. Sorry if that's upsetting, but the recent election really was about that, especially from an outsider's perspective. Gun control is also a controversial subject. If your friend has any connection to the LGBTQ community they could be still devastated by the mass shooting. There are many potential components, but it's up to you to figure it out. Good luck.

My country's coscom is petty as fuck. These two girls have beef with each other for some reason, one of them just spends her life "vague" posting about the other. Meanwhile the other one copies her cosplays as a "haha I look so much better than her". It was funny at first but it's been going on for so long now, I really wish they'd keep their bitching offline.
