Gay men usually don't care too much about their own well being. See pozzing and the popularity of bareback sex. A lot of them don't give a shit (especially the ones in porn), and neither do any of the guys shooting the porn.

It’s amazing how it seems like pedophiles never get in trouble for anything. Makes me think this country is secretly a haven for them. Rape victims die or go to jail and rapists get to walk free.

Kind of surprised no patriot has grabbed a rifle, tracked them down and blown their brains out. It’s absolutely possible and similar threats have been made in the US in the past following failed prosecutions such as this.

No. 220886

Agreed. Why doesn't CPS do anything? How is it possible that nothing has been done, even though many serious issues in that family are well-documented (basically streamed over the internet and archived)? Also, the aunt says that she knows Katelyn's been abused, so there are relatives potentially willing to testify. What it's going to take? Will another child of that shitty excuse for a mother need to commit suicide for someone to become interested? Sickening.

No. 220891

Gross. Been there, but was too young to retain most memories of abuse. My mother still doesn't know. The sad thing is, when you claim something like sexual abuse, or are too young too express yourself properly, people go unpunished.

This is a story that should shock people and motivate some serious changes. If nothing has happened and not even the family was held accountable then it really is outrageous

I've always loved drawing but I felt really unhappy with the results. I have zero ability to draw things how they look like and not how my brain tells me I should draw them. I got so frustrated and depressed I stopped. I wish I could have fun with drawing again.

How can I get better?

Uh you have to know how to draw to draw in pixels sooo id say learning to draw is step 1

To answer your question it'll take you as long as it'll take to draw that good

No. 220708

Maybe practice by buying some grid paper. Draw something without the pixels and ty and recreate it in pixel by using the cubes of the grid paper - start small since you’re also inexperienced with drawing and work your way up! Challenge yourself to do one every day that’s the only garaunteed way to go from 0 - 100: tons of practice and dedication!!

Going to concerts of bands I like helped me a lot. Usually I would just get to the venue early to get on line and just practice small talk there.

You're not obligated to talk to anyone if you don't want to, but you all share a common interest (the band) and can easily meet people of many different backgrounds and ages. And even if you embarrass yourself, you're probably never going to see those people again.

Plus it helps with getting used to large crowds, singing/clapping/cheering along with everybody helps with a sense of connection. Hell, you could even try moshing or dancing if you're into the music enough.

It's basically a fun way to capitalize socially on a hobby you do alone (listening to music).

No. 220505

Also, it gives you experience with going to different places you haven't been before. I've been to parts of my town and neighboring cities that I otherwise would've never gone to. It gets you into a habit of exploring, and it can also figure into some conversation you might have with people.

Yoga is more for posture and relaxation. It was also used as a form of rehabilitation. It's not going to give you abs and a nice ass if you're just doing the basics and even the more advanced techniques (stuff they won't teach you in a modern yoga class) won't do that.

Okay, this is something I've been thinking about for a bit, and I would love to see what other people think or know about the topic. I want to be more conscientious about where I get and what I do with my clothing. Recently, I've realized I need to do a major cleanout, but a big problem I have is…what do I do with my old clothes? In the past I've just donated them to thrift stores, but I've read that a lot of those clothes end up in landfills. On the opposite side, I've also read that a lot of them go to textile plants where the fabric gets reused. I'm not sure which is true and I don't really want to donate things to have them thrown into a landfill.

I know that places like poshmark and depop exist, and I've used those on items I knew I could sell. But what about all the really old stuff (not damaged, just…old)? What does lolcow suggest?

Also, what do you think about the fashion industry as a whole? Are there any places you prefer to shop? Why?

I figured we could start a convo about this kind of thing.

No. 220492

I cleaned out my closet a couple years ago and barely have clothes now. I like shops like Everlane, and have been pickier about my clothes. That way I’m buying something that not only lasts, but I will actually keep for years and will be able to donate if I ever do.

I think fast fashion is ok, once in a while I need something affordable. But seeing so many people buy so much just to toss it out when the next trend comes in gives me a lot of anxiety when I think about it and my role.

I can’t afford anything too expensive, but I try to save up and find places that are more conscious of the environment, consumers, and ethics.

Sorry for any mistakes. On my phone.

No. 220494

I'm OP, and a lot of my clothes I buy secondhand already. I'm also into lolita and usually buy from the big brands. With my regular clothes (work stuff) I have a few online small business I like to order from, but I can't deny that there have been times I've bought from H&M or Forever 21 when I needed something cheap and quick (I know these are terrible businesses to support and I want to stop).

No. 220495

hey i have some experience working at a thrift store. unfortunately you are correct and a lot of clothing does get thrown away, some because it was disgusting and some because we simply didn’t have room. the whole system was pretty janky because the back room would already be overflowing with things intended for recycling and we had to watch out for things being piled up over our heads etc. so if you do have actually crappy clothes and rags, just mark the bag as intended for recycling because it then has a better chance of getting a second life. on a better note the textiles that make it on the right truck actually do get recycled, i’ve seen the rags for sale at hardware stores and stuff.

it is good to be thoughtful about where your things end up, but also don’t stress too much becaue most of your things will eventually end up in a landfill anyways.

ultimately fast fashion and over consumption in general resembles a sort of spiritual sickness from which i feel the cure is just abstaining from want. if you can free yourself from desire for something then it’s kind of like you already own it.

i say all that as someone who loves fashion btw. personally i bought the majority of my wardrobe secondhand, for philosophical reasons but also it’s just cheaper. i also have a capsule wardrobe which has forced me to be conscientious about every single item since it has to go with everything. i don’t really purchase on whims anymore because it would just stress me out. and just to be fair i think it is sustainable to buy nice durable things brand new if one is able to

i still have a long way to behave more conscientiously but i do love that sustainability is popular right now because it’s absolutely necessary. and to answer your last question - tbh i don’t have anywhere i love to shop right now but i would love to find some conscientiously made and also cute undergarments

No. 220496

Ty for weighing in. I appreciate the tip about labeling bags that should be for recycling and I'll try that next time I donate.

I also think capsule wardrobes are a fantastic idea, and luckily there are many small businesses who do collections like that (they can be expensive, but I think it's better to save up for items in the collection once or twice a year instead of going to the mall every other weekend).

It's sad how much of our culture is just buy buy buy and then throw away. It doesn't help knowing about the people who make the clothing and the hardships they are facing.

No. 220522

>Are there any places you prefer to shop?
I buy nearly all of my tops from Uniqlo because they fit petite frames really well, and they seem to last for a decent amount of time. Aside from buying a couple jfash items to gaze at I just layer solid colored clothing.

That’s some great info. I’ll ask at the local goodwill/salvies if they separate the clothing before I donate anything.

Does anyone else with PCOS have trouble and insecurities with feeling feminine? I know PCOS can range from anything to minor hormone imbalance to straight up full beards, mood swings, balding, cystic acne, happy trails, and obesity.There's also a birth control thread that mentions PCOS but this thread gets more into it and how to manage what comes from it. This thread can be used to discuss
>ways to manage PCOS
>hair removal methods
>hair care methods for balding
>skin care management
>hormone management
>how to get body and face to look more feminine
>how to feel and look more feminine in general

I've tried waxing and threading (both professional and at home), the problem I've had with both is that even having someone else do it, some of the hairs are just too thick and strong so instead of getting yanked out properly they just break off. Meaning I get tons of ingrown hairs and will have stubble not even three days later. Its not enough time for my skin to recover so it would just be perpetually irritated. At least with shaving, it's pretty indetectible….for all of 12 hours, then I have to shave again. :/

I did go to the doctor and the first thing he suggested was PCOS, I'm getting bloodwork done and then I will find out what to do from here.

I recommend inositol to everyone who suffers from PCOS. It's supposed to have a similar effect as Metformin and it is a supplement. I am not overweight or insuline resistent but still feel much better taking inositol. My ability to concentrate has improved, my period has become much more regular, my breasts have actually grown and are less saggy. I have less acne now, too. Inositol is also supposed to help with hirsutism but I can not confirm that for me yet. Pic related, you can of course use any (myo)-inositol though. I personally use inositol powder bought from some fitness supplement shop.

If you can afford it, consider laser hair removal. Imo it's much better than ripping out the hair because you don't have to let it grow and you're less likely to get ingrowns.

No. 220462

i dont have insurance or the money to go to a doctor but i keep starting to feel like i have alot of the symptoms of PCOS, but i have no idea what to do about it. All i really know i could do is just lose weight? but i honestly dont know

What Kills me most is the diet.

I'm an extremely picky eater (as in i just vomit things i dont like, the taste is just unbearable) that lives off carbs.
Im planning on the future on living off soylent or something similar because i just cant do a pcos diet.

Is there any alternative management than the diet?
Im almost underweight but i still have lots of body hair, painful periods etc so weight loss isnt really an issue.

No. 220480

Ahah, don't bet too much on soylent if you're picky. I don't know if it's any better now but I've tried a few brands a few years ago and almost all of it was nasty.
