Same, but I'm a self-hating minority that grew up in a racist shithole and was ostracized by my own racial community growing up, so I have no friends on either side of the fence. I made a lot of friends online as a result, but was always afraid to meet them since it always resulted in "Oh, you're black," followed by a slow decline in contact before they poofed on me.

Now I have a hard time making friends because I subconsciously assume nobody is sincere when they're nice to me. It's even worse at cons where there aren't many black people because I become a novelty. I essentially have a core of maybe 5 friends that I rarely see and I get too anxious to bother with making new ones, because I get crap for not being black enough from black people I know and being a loser that'll never actually be white from the assholes in the area.

I found out my boyfriend is still fapping to other cosplay girls. Early in our relationship he asked what my boundaries are, and I said I didn't care about any non-cosplay porn or hentai, but that I viewed other cosplayers as peers or friends and it weirded me out. Since we specifically talked about this and he's still doing it, feels bad man

>followed by a slow decline in contact before they poofed on me.
Maybe because people can tell you're self-hating and it makes them uncomfortable? I find it hard to believe people that have otherwise liked you suddenly drop all contact when they realise you're black. Do you make weird racial comments around them?

Anon you can get him strung up for harassment & sue the bollox off him, never have to work again.

I think you have been lead, groomed into this even. He waited til you were single & alone, now trying to corner you. If you are seriously considering it, think again-he is just flirting for titilation, getting off on thinking about using a cute bit of stuff in his power, he isn't thinking about you, or even respects you by the nature of his interactions with you. Men who cheat will always cheat, he may of course have done this before. I was in your situation once. It was very uncomfortable. I shut him down & 7 years later consider it a lucky escape, met my oh a year later. You are just lonely rn. Wouldn't consider it otherwise.

I'm not fat. I'm actually slightly underweight due to height. But I feel like I've finally accepted my body after 10 years of body image issues starting at puberty. As the weather gets warmer I no longer feel bad about wearing more revealing clothing outside of jfash, and even in jfash I feel okay wearing things I wouldn't wear before like short skirts and more fitted tops.

I think many have to wait to get into a hobby due to finances. It's a good thing so many dresses are now for purchase second hand. You get more bang for your buck. The other person makes a good point about colors. You likely could go for a rarer color, but maybe first think about what color you want to start focusing your wardrobe on. Once you get started, you can eventually branch out to other colors. Sticking to 1 or 2 colors at first means you'll be able to mix and match more for variety when it comes to wearing the clothing.

I'd determine if it's the girl herself he's jerking it to, or if it's the character. That would make a difference. If you start to notice that the costumes happen to be the same characters he picks for his hentai, the girl behind it likely has little to do with it. So, make sure he's not jerking it to 'Rebecca', but to the appearance of Hatsune Miku which 'Rebecca' happens to be dressed as. That would make a considerable difference in that it's not the girl herself he has on his mind.

My bf is starting to get into my love for Lolita and helping me hunt dresses out since he knows my tastes now.

But he told me today he wants to be a brolita. I want to support him but it was out of nowhere. He isn't feminine at all, he's super muscly and tall, and he always wears like blacks and skulls and stuff. No, we aren't talking gothic Lolita, he wants to wear sweet. It's weird to me and I feel bad for judging him mentally. Still love him though.

He broke it to me out of nowhere during cuddling afterglow of post sex this morning as well. What the hell is with that timing? Was he thinking if being in Lolita the whole time he was spooging in me or something?

hi anon, >>9417021 is not me at all please disregard them

my decision is
1) go to a college in the same state (i'm automatically accepted to all of them), have my education paid for, but the condition is that i'd have to stay with my parents who beat the shit out of me

at least i'd have no debt

2) get the fuck out of here and go to a better college in another state, where i have friends who are willing to help me out. all of the colleges i've been accepted to outside the state will leave me 20k+ in debt after scholarships though

i've never been on my own and i would literally have to learn how to adult from square one but the freedom might be worth it?

i don't know whether or not to grit my teeth and score a free education or make a completely irresponsible but liberating decision to leave.

Nice argument.

Hiring in STEM is done via interviews that test your technical aptitude for a given job. You can still get hired even if HR doesn't like your face.

STEM hasn't lowered their standards to hire women, speaking as someone who has worked in the STEM field for longer than 4chan has been around, men are moderate coders who have huge egos.

I've hired many men and women, and because women suffer from imposter syndrome more often, they are often better coders with less ego because they strive to match their male counterparts.

The women that get into coding professionally are more passionate/driven about it than the average coder.

The women who have the motivation to turn it into a career and stick with it are good, but their numbers are too small for them to have much presence at the very top.

It seems sort of presumptuous to say the standard black person has a difficult to pronounce name in the first place. The black people I know have perfectly normal names. Richard, Andrew, Peter, etc.

And you can network regardless of race. It might be more difficult, yes, if you're trying to fraternize with groups that you don't look anything like, but it certainly isn't impossible, and not every white person applying for a job is the boss' nephew.

Your whole post kinda sounds like you're extrapolating anecdotal evidence.

I've seen totally underqualified women get hired because their mother was a regional manager and hiring her daughter as the GM of a store at 18 meant the company would pay for her college. Sure the store got ran into the ground, but it's an amazing start for someone 18 to make 50k a year working part time through university.

for your health and your future as an adult, get out. the way your parents have treated you is going to follow you for a bit.

the sooner you can start processing what has happened and working toward a healthier view of yourself and relationships, the better.

I'm still slightly struggling with self-value and creating healthy relationships in which I'm not a soggy doormat but I'm way better off than I was at 18. My parents have even dealt with some of their shit in my absence so I have begun to have much better relationships with them 8 years later.

I wish you all the best but I really urge you to be sneakily smart in this and make your way out. you are a strong person anon. get away from the physical and financial control of your ill parents.

p.s. first year of college is basically sleep-away camp. the resources and help available for you will likely almost be overwhelming. the RA in your dorm, your advisor, even some of your professors will help you out. you won't be totally on your own. your school will probably also have it's own health insurance policy that you can use part of your loans to pay for.

The issue I was seeing is that if leaving means being completely cut off from financial help, they are risking being in a situation where they have nothing to fall back on. If something unfortunate happened to anon that interrupted school they could end up trapped there even longer, or simply have nothing. Leaving financial safety is dangerous when you have nothing to go back to, so you'd want it to be as short as possible. You can't rely on just friends to help you out long term anyways.

Haven't made a new friend in years; not sure how to anymore. Too much anxiety to try to insert myself into a preformed group and try to make friends with a bunch of people.
I have confidence in some things, like my schoolwork, because I'm consistently good at it. There's no justification for me to feel confident in my social skills and deals with women because I've never even been on a date before.

>chances are you've procured 2 friends who are exactly like you
Nope, I met them both in high school (2 years ago) and the only reason I still talk to them is because they go to the same college as me. They're both fratboys who party hardy and I'm a pseudo-teetotaler. We're roommates this year but next year I'll be totally on my own.

Get out anon.

My mum and me had a complicated relationship, which still effects my self- esteem and mental health to this day. She undermined me, was emotionally manipulative and occasionally violent.

I left at 18, got my student loans and started building my own life.

The issue is that here in the UK the amount of loan you qualify for is means tested, so because of my mum's low income I qualified for the full amount.
When we were looking at unis my dad apologised to me for leaving me with my mum, I thought he didn't want me to live with him, turns out he just wanted me to be able to afford uni... and although on paper his income was too high for me to get the full loan, he had a massive mortgage because of the divorce. I effectively suffered years of extra abuse to pay for uni, and I can tell you that it wasn't worth it, even though I loved my course.

Sounds like a bitch. Whenever someone recognizes me as wearing Lolita in public instead of "are you in a play?" I love it, doesn't matter what they're wearing. I wouldn't lose sleep over a cunt like that

If they'd been born men they'd be the worst, most stereotypical "/r9k/ers" ever.

maybe she just rabidly hates herself.
notice how she gave you a nice compliment about your art with no issues, but the minute you complimented her she had a psychotic break.
sounds like she hates herself something fierce

step 1 stop referring to lolitas as lolis

Nah, this board is pretty much filled with the most normies on 4chan. Mostly because it's about hobbies where you interact with others, and have friends. I think cgl is the polar opposite of r9k, with the only correlation being crossposters.

The difference is women are born into easy mode and can get away with all the same behaviors that men are judged and ridiculed for.

Clearly bait, but that was clearly made from the perspective of someone that doesn't see women as regular human beings. You're part of the problem.

>> No.9418276

Well of course they're human beings. What manner of scientifically illiterate fool would ever deny that.

They're just one of 2 types of human beings. The type that is born with an easy mode solution to near every possible problem life can throw at them, and also doesn't get as many problems throw at them to begin with.

The problem I've noticed the most is people from "both sides" separate themselves so far from the other that they don't realize we all have to deal with the same bullshit. Grass is always greener, etc. etc. That's the point I'd like people with views like >>9418276 to try to understand.

>> No.9418316

>we all have to deal with the same bullshit.
Except we don't. Maybe on the broadest level we all need to eat, sleep, etc. The most basic needs of life. But take even one step above that and it quickly becomes different. Societal standards and expectations of men are for the most part drastically harsher and more difficult for men. Try and dance around all the things listed in that image all you want, you know it's almost all true.

And of course, one of the biggest double standards in how society treats men vs women, is how men, in spite of being treated harsher, and told they have it easier and thus aren't allowed to complain ever. While women, despite having it easier, are told they have it harder and are encouraged to complain all they want, and society will listen and give them what they cry for. This one in particular is so deeply internalized by most people that it's nigh impossible to show anyone the truth of it, especially women.

>> No.9418325

Oh and one more thing I forgot to include, even on that most basic level women have it easier. Nobodies going out of their way to give random men free meals or housing or anything. A woman could get through her entire life without ever providing for herself and instead just mooching off a man, and society will consider her perfectly normal and successful.

I only have anecdotal evidence, so I know I can't apply it to women as a whole, but some of the awful people I have personal experience with definitely would not be treated the way they are if they weren't women.

I'm talking about /r9k/ tier individuals, perhaps a bit more interactive (though toxic) than that at times.

But as women, their lack of social graces is seen as demure. They've gotten pursued, had plenty of opportunities (granted squandered ones) thrown at them.

A guy acting in every way the same (and looking about equivalent as a male) would still be on /r9k/ today.
