/cgl Should probably keep Lolita and Cosplay separate, because lolita users tend to be the most toxic.

What do you think is killing the board?

Do you think anything even is?

I mean being the frilly lovechild of lolcow/pull cattiness and /r9k cancer is pretty bad.

I disagree. The board is slow enough as is. Separating cosplay and lolita into separate boards would kill each board.
Many lolitas also cosplay and vice versa too.

>What do you think is killing the board?
Vendetta posting, defaulting to insults to anyone who posts progress/community relevant posts of themselves, and the inability to talk about individuals without getting suspended/banned.

Vendetta posting is self-explanatory.

Insulting those who post progress/community relevant posts results in no one actually contributing useful content. It's also the reason why cosplay progress and handmade lolita threads are relatively dead.

The inability to talk about individuals leads to the lack of discussion about what's happening in the community, although I understand why the rule was made.

That's good in my books.

However, splitting the board is stupid. There's way too much crossover (wigs, contacts, sewing, similar resource threads) for there to be a split over something as subjective as "toxic". Have you seen the Mariah Malliad drama going on? I've never seen so much hate and how quick cosplayers are sharks in the water to take down a cosplay e-celeb. I don't want to hear "lolita is more toxic" for even a second.

Another thing about Momokun is that it's completely warranted. On anon boards, they were criticizing her and collecting evidence waaay before normies were forced to acknowledged it on Facebook and Twitter.

You see, accusing people of being toxic is what a lot of people do when they don't want to be criticized and don't want their wrongdoings to be shown for the world to see.

>> No.9943700

A good amount of the people hating on her aren't even cosplayers though.

Lolcow isn't cosplayers either.

>> No.9943708

Do you really expect a LARPer to know that?

>> No.9943709 [DELETED] 

Where did this meme come from? Almost every lolita I know personally online comes to /cgl/ now and then, and the general consensus is that far more lolitas come here than is openly claimed because of the reputation this place has. The amount of people in threads like the BST, secret santa, insta, etc. who are basically posting proof of being lolita is high enough for this whole "cgl isn't even mostly lolitas!!" thing to be just stupid.

>> No.9943712

I wouldn't say most of cgl isn't lolitas, but we do have roleplayers occasionally. There was some anon in one of the past feel threads who shit themselves when they were told that "armchair lolita" isn't a thing and they're not lolitas if they don't wear the clothes, and it wasn't an isolated incident.
There are lolitas on cgl but judging by the things some anons say and post, there are plenty of itas and roleplayers too.

>> No.9943713

This is really a baseless meme because how the fuck would you know. However, when someone like OP comes along and uses words like "toxic" and divide and conquer tactics, it's obvious they're some kind of offended tumblr user.

Nah, you don't gotta be a tumblrite to know /cgl got a shit attitude

>> No.9943721

Have you been to lolcow? There's many threads dedicated to cosplayers. Mariah is considered one of the main cows and cosplayers obviously go in there giving milk on her. How do you think there's so many screencaps on her?

Trying to brush it off like cosplayers aren't as toxic, if not much more, is stupid. Not only is cosplay bigger, but there's more cows, and men are into it too so you get so many more creep stories.

I know because of all the misinformation in the lolita threads, the obvious bait that people jump on, the fake stories, the focus on what happens on facebook (which role-players easily have access to even if it's comm drama), the sissies on tumblr talking about how much they like it when they lose an argument on cgl...
I've never seen someone say "I pretend to be a cosplayer" in a confessions thread.
In cosplay threads it's more focussed on real life events.

Have you been in any of the Midwest con threads? It's more than discussing Lolita, they talk shit about any con without a tea party and detail threads to try to get back at cosplayers enjoying a convention they don't like.

So then I take it you didn't actually take a look at that thread.
Lolitas came in and bitched because the con had to cut back on budget and since Lolita was the smallest group, the brand guests and tea party went.
They yelled and yelled, throwing a tantrum and derailing the thread multiple times to the point where a janitor had to camp the thread.

It eventually got to the point where the con chair had to come in and dump a wall of text about why he cut Lolita events this year and to defend himself against people calling him a rapist.

Honestly, I wonder why /cgl/ is such a shithole compared to other boards. I know lolitas aren't always going to be super regal or whatever, but a lot of other boards that encourage selfposting like /fa/ and /soc/ are generally pretty positive. there's a lot of people who quickly fall for bait, get angry about little details in someones face (like people will complain someones eyebrows aren't perfectly even), and get mad if any positive comments happen. Like say someone is pretty in the CoF thread, and there's gonna be a troll who gets mad about it. So-genuinely curious- why are people on /cgl/ so bitter compared to other boards? not saying any board is perfect, but i swear this board is /r9k/ levels of sad sometimes. I feel like it's easy to point fingers and say "well because the board is mostly female", but I know a lot of girls in my life who aren't as bitter as some on /cgl/. what gives? why are we so bitter and prone to bait?

As someone that has been visiting this board for nearly a decade, I can honestly say that it wasn't always this bad. It seems like /cgl/ has regressed and adopted that early 2000s "you can't be nice or you're a newfag," "final boss of the internet" 4chan mentality. Hell, you' can see it now, people posting unnecessarily aggressive responses to compliments in the CoF thread, and attacking people for selfposting in the IG thread, and then telling you to "go back to Facebook" if you ask why they're being such a cunt. Back in the LJ days, /cgl/ was seen as being super catty, and by today's standards, it would have been considered vendetta central, but it was hardly ever as aggressive as it is today. Lolitas have never been the most stable bunch, but as the community grows, it's just reaching absurd levels.

Definitely agree that the toxicity levels are killing it off, mainly with the constant vendetta posting. I like the drama, gossip and all that but in smaller doses and not petty, meaningless shit between some mutual comm members nobody knows or gives a shit about.

There’s also a lot more jumping down other anons throats over the very slightest disagreement than there was when I first started lurking here. CGL can be a great resource but lately there’s just way to much unnecessary salt to dig through.

>> No.9946751

>What do you think is killing the board?
Women. Not even kidding.
You have to be mentally damaged to visit 4chan. You have to be even more damaged to post. However, this affects men and women differently.
Men tend to be less personal so if someone posts something they disagree with, they insult each other for a bit, which slowly fades into an actual discussion (e.g. “I like X more” – “Are you literally retarded?” – “Well, why would you prefer Y? X has better A.” – “That’s your opinion, but…” and so on).
Women tend to be more personal, especially the ones here on /cgl/. So once they feel attacked, there is no going back and there will not be any kind of discussion.
I like to post on other boards because you can talk to people, disagree with them and have some form of discussion. You cannot disagree with people on /cgl/. Once you do, they feel attacked and will keep insulting you however reasonable you respond. On the contrary, if you don’t start insulting back, they seem to take it as a form of weakness and turn it up to eleven.

/cgl/ really is the worst board on 4chan when it comes to discussing opinions.

Ita threads once served a purpose: They showcased what not to wear, usually with anons actually outlining what makes a coord ita. Not anymore.

I don’t know how people can stay invested in things like that for so long, like drama based places like lolcow get so exhausting real fast with all the negativity, embarrassing infighting, and sperging about petty shit no one cares about.

Now that blogs are dead, I find there's a lack of plain old discussion about the fashion itself, like reviews of brand pieces and talking about past and future trends.

There's also been some gulls saying they'd like to start YouTube channels with that sort of content instead of the Lolita 101 crap we currently have, and while that would be a welcome change, I feel like there's not much in the meantime, until that happens.

Guys who have been in cosplay for years and been on here for as long get mad because we have been told for a long ass time that we're some problem and we need to respect women, but then we get the boot when some teenage girls think boys are gross and want to make this a girls only club.

>> No.9961029

Lolita girls often cake so much fucking make up on an wear wigs or hair pieces so I can't even say most of them look nice. On top of that there seems to be some werid narcissism involved despite looking fucking ridiculous. Some asian women can rock it but seeing it on white and black women makes me literally fucking cringe out of embarrassment.

Listen I work out 7 days a week go to class over 15 hours a week and still have to work. I spent a lot of time meeting the standards of society why would i waste all my hard efforts on some iffy looking chick caked in make up dressed like a large doll unless i had a fetish? Not to mention the narcissism on top of that.

I could easily and often prefer to just date an actual asian girl with good fashion sense instead of some weebs with ego problems. Not to say I would not give a chubby white girl a chance as I have once before but definitely not if you are caked with shit

All I need is a beautiful smile,natural hair and someone able to run , drink ,work out , meet my friends etc... I want a woman not an expensive life sized doll with gross expensive habits.

Also get some class bitch what kind of lady causally talks about the genitals some one she does not know like that? As unattractive as you people are I'm not accusing you of having meat curtains because there is a line. If thats how you cosplayer girls are its no wonder only fetish betas like you.

>> No.9961043

As the person you replied to originally... you do realize we're not doing it for the purpose of attracting men, right? We just like wearing ridiculous clothing. If it's a waste of our looks then so be it. We aren't doing it for the purpose of attracting men. We aren't doing it for the purpose of repelling men. We are doing it because we personally like the appearance of the makeup, clothing, and hair. It's fun for us. It looks cute to us. It's just what we like to do.

If it's a waste in your eyes then that's okay. There's plenty of women out there who match your tastes so it's nothing to be annoyed by.

Also, cosplay is something people wear as a costume. It's no longer a costume if you wear it all the time. You say, "I want a woman, not an expensive life size doll with gross expensive habits." There's plenty of women you can pick from who do not wear J-fashion.

Nayrt but most of us are aware we'd arguably have an easier life not paying ridiculous amounts of money on clothing people think is weird as hell, spending time on getting ready and so on.

I believe it is the best way to live life. "If it makes you happy, do it." People spend their whole lives trying to live to society's standards, and they can still end up divorced, resented, or jobless.

Some might say, "What about attracting a man? Don't you want to have children?" I can only smile while saying nothing because they would have no way of knowing I am unable to have my own biological children. How can life be harder regarding something that wasn't possible in the first place?

With employment in mind, it is clothing, and it does come off. I would not wear it to a funeral nor would I wear it to a workplace that does not allow me to do so. I can change back into what I love when I get home.

So, it does not make my life harder. Happiness cannot make somebody's life harder. I do not expect everyone to understand my choices. I do genuinely wish the world was a place that everyone felt comfortable expressing themselves whether that be wearing 'silly clothing' or investing in one's dream home gym. It doesn't hurt anyone, and it's a shame to deny oneself happiness.

There's likely no audience for it. In the long run, I've seen plenty of threads and images featuring Jessica Rabbit, Homestuck, Lara Croft, and various other western characters. Marvel and D.C. characters regularly get posted, especially in the masked cosplay threads. There's even been Star Trek and Star Wars threads in the past. None have ever been deleted for being 'off-topic'.

If it's cosplay, it's related. It's a board for cosplay and Japanese fashion. Even LARP is considered on-topic. If a thread doesn't take off then it's just because there's not enough people interested in it. I'm not an authority, but I feel you could start a Western general? A thread that includes cosplay from any Western series whether that be Star Trek or Fairly Odd Parents. I don't think it'd go against board rules.

This is kind of funny. You can't take the man hating on here seriously, just like you can't take the sexism on r9k seriously. It's really unlikely that the person posting actually hates all men. The "for once in your life" take is pretty funny too, because it's assuming, through one anon comment that the person just sits around, pissing over men all the time. It's 4chan, you can't take shit seriously here.
I see just as many men complaining that women are "bad" and they "hate all men" on this board. Often the autism comes as a response from a poster who just whines about "lolita being about sex/attracting men" or "why can't i fuck a girl?" or just some dude basically sticking his dick out and making his presence known for some reason.
Men on this board like to complain it's because of "feminism" that their cringey comments get called out, but it's more like equal treatment. If you made a cringey post and include that you're a fatty, people will go after you for being a fatty. Just stop being dumb and also telling everyone you have a dick and people will stop "man hating"

In my opinion gulls are a parallel to Tumblr users.
