>Are you going to stand there, fiddling with your phone or sit down and socialize with us? What do you have at home that’s so important?

Lemme ask you. Do you honestly think I want to be here until past midnight, listening to you get drunk and loud?

>We are here because your sister is leaving tomorrow and we are saying goodbye.

I was told we were eating over. I have told you this repeatedly. I expect to go there, eat, and then leave. I didn’t want to eat and listen to you laugh and talk for four hours while I sit here like a jackass.

>What are you so antsy for that you just need to leave?

I'm going to hang out with friends from the internet and watch funny videos.

This is why I don't go home. I love my family, but being with them bring me no pleasure. So when I go home I just sit around doing half the normal things I do and sometimes do activities with them like a board game or see a movie, as well as meals. But overall I'm bored as fuck and I get depressed because I can't do everything I usually do and I feel that I'm letting them down.

I don't like doing that, but because I always feel weird looking at myself. Like, I know exactly how chubby I am and my various defects, but it's still discoserting when I look in the mirror. Like I have some sort of far-more-suave mental image of myself and when I see a photo or a mirror it just wrecks that ideal.

So you're picturing yourself as you'd ideally appear in the Matrix?

All kidding aside, I think most people do that. For example, my self-image is of a me with, among other things, flawless skin (instead of covered in body hair, acne scars, and stretch marks that randomly appeared one year despite me not gaining any weight), perfect teeth (instead of crooked and one chipped), and a smooth face befitting James Bond (kinda forced to grow facial hair to make myself appear as a legitimate adult, and I HATE IT), and of course tanned and trim. My reaction when I look in the mirror is basically, "Who is this ugly old fucker, and why am I in his body instead of my own?!" I'm sure that it's not at all healthy to do this, but it's hardly as bad as it could be. God help me if I somehow manage to get old enough to start getting legitimate wrinkles.

Come to think of it, my ass is rather flat, y'know — for a gay guy. Maybe I should get butt-implants. Might distract from the rest. A bigger dick could help, too. Mine's literally below-average; should I be more bothered by that?
>> No. 388352
I love hanging out with my family. I consider them my friends too, even if they get up my ass sometimes. It's pretty great, we make sure to all meet up at least once a week.

It's not that I don't get along with my family, it's that everything I do is kind of above their heads and I have trouble explaining it to them, and they don't want to particularly listen to me since part of it is hyperbole they don't agree with. I face the same kind of challenges with other people but the problem is that talking with other people can produce real changes in my life, whereas talking with my family doesn't.

Well don't leave me hanging. Are they!?

Also, I spent like 3 hours looking for BDSM stuff in my state yesterday. It's either really hard to find or people are just quiet about their fetishes. It should not be this difficult to find someone who wants to tie me up. I know this is sexual, but it makes me wonder what other kind of hobbies people are hiding from the world. It's a good subject for a writing project. I think I'll get right on that.

So I have a loft bed, which is nice for my small room. I don't use the guard rails because I'm a very stiff sleeper; I rarely move from the position I fall asleep in.

So this morning my alarm goes off and I move to swing myself over onto the ladder. I guess I was still half asleep, and instead swung myself over the side of the bed. The five foot fall was far less painful than I thought it would be, though my mobile file box suffered some damage.

I also managed to kick my monitor and half the stuff off my desk under the bed.

So that's one way to start a week.

Well, Girl B hasn't gotten back to me yet as to when she wants to get a drink. I texted her my full name so she could add me on fb (she admitted she doesn't use it much, which is understandable) and I'm flat broke right now (until Tuesday after next, at least) so I don't mind waiting a while.

Still, I don't want to let her think I've forgotten about her - I haven't called her since last Monday, should I ring her again to get a definite date?

As for Girl A... I haven't spoken to her much on fb. I'll try and get in touch either tomorrow of Wednesday.

I think I figured out this throat thing: Acid Reflux Disease.

I've dealt with Acid Reflux many, many times in my life, but it's always been lower in the esophogus, like I was having mild heartburn. This is higher up, in the collar bone region, and it never occurred to me that this could be the cause. Since I still have a supply of generic prilosec, I'll take that (about two weeks worth) and that should be that. It was a regular thing during college when my diet was horrible, but after I got out it greatly improved (mainly dropping soda) and I dealt with only when I had a binge period (normally from travel) or bad stress.

However, I had neither around the time this started, so I'm not sure of the trigger. I am positive that this is what I'm dealing with now, though.
>> No. 388420
Same. I was surprised just how bad it was and how great the difference.

However, I have this weird thing now where I feel "taller" when I'm not wearing my glasses. Not that I feel shorter when I do wear them, but when I'm not it's like I'm 6" taller. It's a nice feeling, even though my eyesight gets kinda shitty.

My nearsightedness is so bad that, without my contacts in, I cannot read standard text without getting so damn close to it (we're talking less than four inches) that it starts to blur because my eyes cannot focus on anything that close.

Which is crap because it makes me feel like I'm getting old. When I was a little kid I could touch my nose to paper and be able to study the grain. Now I can't discern fine details if I get closer to something than three inches or so. Well, I can still see well enough to realize that the individual pixels on my LCD screen are actually composed of nine sub-pixels.

It's actually one of the reasons I'm hesitant about getting laser eye surgery, besides the cost and that I'm paranoid they'll fuck up and ruin my life. I don't want to lose my ability to see things so closely. The logic tells me that I can always get a magnifying glass, but if my contacts fall out I literally become legally blind; that I need to see far off things clearly all throughout the day, but see things super-close-up only a few times per week at the most. But still! I don't want to suddenly be unable to paint with eighth-millimeter precision; I don't want to suddenly be unable to tell the difference between a flea and a tick by studying the anatomy; I don't want to suddenly be unable to discern the flatness of the tip of a needle. I know none of these are particularly useful, but it's a matter of pride to have microscopic vision.

Pretty much any Disney princess is in, though you'd have to do the hair to make any kind of distinction.

there was a reason the blue jean was king of the western wear, because they last a damn long time. I've got some six year pairs just starting to wear out that need to be replaced in about a year.

As for A... it's not like I don't want to keep in touch with her, but it seems like she's never on facebook at the same time as me (a situation made even more irritating when facebook says she's available to chat, and then it says she's been away for about 6 minutes).

money being an issue, i can understand. i usually just shop at thrift stores or out of season to get what i want. really helps when all i need are pants to replace my pants and shoes to replace my shoes. good quality stuff can last a while. no need to go broke on clothes if you can help it... hopefully.

no idea what you're talking about.

also, as someone who wasn't allowed to wear jeans for 17 years of his life due to uniforms and dress codes, jeans have been a relief for me. my only gripe is that designer jeans are expensive but FALL THE FUCK APART because they're not designed to be worn like proper jeans, so getting the cheap(ish) durable ones from companies like Levi's is the only recourse.

Anyone who considers jeans to be "fashion" is a retard, it's a functional piece of clothing, like latex gloves or something. Of course some asshole walking down the streets in a pair of latex gloves would look ridiculous.

Maybe because of being exposed to it by my dad and brothers, but jeans for me will always be working mens pants. Meant to protect legs during manual labor that normal pants just can't handle.

If you have the leg muscles to actually fill out a pair of jeans and the common sense not to mix them with dress shoes, jeans can be attractive... even downright sexy. IDK if you've ever seen Mike Holmes wearing a pair, but he does fill them out rather nicely.

"Fashion" originally picked up jeans because they became a symbol of somebody who works with their body. Later ripped and faded jeans became introduced to give them the illusion of being used.
This is the ultimate in retarded behavior, imagine someone seriously wearing a hardhat in public and trying to look tough. Imagine them mixing it with a full dress suit. Then adding scratches to it to make it look more used.

Everyday trousers (pants) have have pleats, cuffs, creases and other things that simply don't exist on jeans, such as the fact that they aren't supposed to be form fitting in any way. Pants are designed more to look good than to survive hard work.
Jeans take a completely different direction, they're a special type of work pants made of denim and usually have reinforced stitching or even rivets, and aren't designed for appearances.

are we talking about the same kind of pants? i mean these kind. here you would absolutely not wear these to a bar because they look too professional/businessy, you would be very out of place, looking like you just came from work and did not stop by your house to change into more suitable clothes. you could wear them to college... if you worked there. it's not really a social faux pas to wear them in casual situations but you might give off an uptight/serious aura which is not what you want in a bar setting or when you're just hanging out with friends. i've always found it funny that they were called slacks because they give off the exact opposite image of being a slacker. if you want to look nice for a date though yes please wear slacks and not jeans.

is there any other alternative?

In a strange turn of events, I have received some kind of promotion I wouldn't normally be able to get.
Am grateful. Also, more exhausted than I've ever been in my life.
In addition, I'm kind of in a position in which I can facilitate the firing of one of my former coworkers. I'm not entirely sure how to go about this, as it is my first position with these kinds of responsibilities.
Also, though I always go out of my way to be extra nice and courteous to everyone whether I'm working or not, and most of it is genuine, I don't feel too guilty. She may be the worst employee I have encountered in my entire life, she is long overdue, and my superiors--as well as her coworkers--agree with me.

NetcraftENT confirms it, I have acid reflux.

He gave me a strong prescription to beat it down faster and hopefully keep it there, and in the meantime I've put carbs back in my diet regularly (the lack of which I attribute to this really odd flare up.)

So, I'm an atheist. My sister, who I adore, and who is far more intelligent than I will ever be, is a Christian.

I do not have a problem with this.

She's just a very atypical Christian, which I find confusing. There are just so many aspects of the faith that she herself outright rejects, I don't really understand why she doesn't reject the faith in its entirety. She just clings to certain aspects of the faith that she doesn't find too offensive.

For me personally, it was drilled into me that the faith was completely perfect with no room for error. Therefore, once I started to find holes, the whole thing kind of fell apart for me.

Again, I have no problem with the religious. I just find myself very curious about how my sister handles her belief. I guess she's just more open and forgiving than I am.

We're talking texts that are thousands of years old, translated through several different languages, and existed in periods where rulers, religious or otherwise, could easily add or remove segments without the general population being any the wiser, not to mention that no one can even agree on how much is literal, how much is parable, how much is obsolete now, how much changed when Christ walked, etc.

Many people either need to have a purpose or end game in their life, or have something to answer the questions that science and humanity can't yet. Religion does both (though continually less on the latter) and also provides a very stable presents with a large community that essentially becomes a Life Support Group. When religion is the goal to fill those holes, it's easy to pick and choose which parts you want to follow or ignore (like Leviticus, which has one or two lines about homosexuality being a bad thing that many Americans cling to, but then they go and ignore the rest of it with things like sending women off when they're on their period, how to properly obtain slaves, and stoning adulterers.)

I have a very intelligent Computer Science professor I've kept in light touch with after graduating, who I admire and respect greatly, that is also very religious. He's not outspoken on it, but he doesn't shy away from the topic, either. At the least, he doesn't thump his Bible, and he never brought it up in class. I never asked him why, but since he doesn't try to control anyone with it that doesn't matter.

>For me personally, it was drilled into me that the faith was completely perfect with no room for error. Therefore, once I started to find holes, the whole thing kind of fell apart for me.
Same. My father is a conservative Lutheran pastor to boot, so I had that shit drilled into me hardcore. If he had been a liberal Lutheran pastor, I might still be religious to some extent; but with so many contradictions and things just not sitting well with me (if you accept the Garden of Eden as is, then you tacitly accept that God set humanity up to fail) that I dropped the whole thing.

Which is nice, because now I get my Sundays. I do miss hymns, though; they were the only part of church I enjoyed, and they're as close as I'll get to spontaneous musical numbers in real life. I tried going to a Mormon service once with a friend who was converting to it, and they sung so quietly. I don't even understand why you'd sing then.

(Yes, there's a such thing as liberal (ELCA) vs conservative (LCMS) Lutheran.)
>> No. 388745
Sounds like your sister is what's known as a "liberal" Christian - nothing to do with politics, she just takes a liberal view of the Bible i.e. she doesn't believe in the entire Bible, just the bits she likes.

basically this.

As an Atheist who does have a problem with Religion (which boils down to stifling understanding of the nuts and bolts technologies around us), I meet a lot of people who are good religious people who almost never adhere to the full scripture of their text. Which is a good thing, but it does beg the question of why one would rep the Faith when the text cannot be interpreted wholly. I think it comes down to 2 real main factors:

1) Atheism is terrifying. The idea that there is no Grand Narrative, that we are essentially at the behest of an unthinking mechanical Universe, and that the cause of almost everything that happens on this planet is ultimately Human, is incredibly scary. The idea that things like Karma are really just our brains drawing structure around essentially unstructured events is in no way comforting. Given that contemplation of such notions only grants usefulness in a dizzyingly abstract way, often it is simpler to just believe, however piecemeal that may be to the strict dogma.

2) At least in America, Church is the great social meeting ground. It attracts tons of people, you don't have to imbibe any drugs, and you don't have to meet hyper-complex social obligations or understand truly difficult ideas to be accepted. The social group granted by attending Church is arguably greater than any other social group in America, and while lots of people seem like they have it together socially, ultimately everyone is still in search of friends, and those gatherings represent some of the greatest pools of people.

Needling people on these points is ultimately fruitless, however. People believe what they need to believe in order to preserve their own sanity, and thus survive. Reasoned arguments against Religion don't work because it is trying to breach the core of what a person considers to be their "self", and that identity is ultimately tied to their moral compass, and how they perceive themselves as ultimately being good people. The problem is that just thinking you're a "good person" does not capture all the realities of what it means to truly do good in this world, y'know? Or at least, that's my issue with it. But most "Bad" Christians seem to get this on some level, even if they still believe.
>> No. 388752
There are different types. A lot of people really love one type of wine but hate all others.

Also wines (including champagne) are supposed to be taken with food. Depending on the food, the wine can nullify a bad aftertaste, counteract fatty stuff and oil, or make meat taste better.

Blanc de noirs for example goes well with seafood or mushrooms. It's possible someone served you incorrectly, forgot food altogether, or gave you cheap sweet champagne out of a box.

I agree completely that there's nothing wrong with it, and I'm glad that she's able to look at religion the way that she does. I certainly do think that there are some good life lessons that one can take away from the faith. I'm happy that this is something that she's able to find rewarding.

My confusion just kinda stemmed from the fact that, again,
>it was drilled into us that the faith was completely perfect with no room for error. Therefore, once I started to find holes, the whole thing kind of fell apart for me.
And considering just how knowledgeable she is about our particular church's past and just how much she flat out disagrees with, I'm perplexed by how devout she remains.
Again, I find nothing wrong with this if it's what she wants. I'm glad she's able to take the positive and leave the negative. I just have some difficulty understanding how one is still able to embrace the faith with the knowledge she has.

Again, she is more intelligent and insightful than I am, so I'm probably missing something, but the way I kind of view my current relationship with the faith is comparable to how I no longer believe in Santa Claus. I see the purpose of his existence, and I suppose that it's good that some kids are given further incentive to be well-behaved, but with the knowledge I have now I can't go back to believing in him even if I really wanted to.

I know where you're coming from, and truth be told, I also have tons of problems with religion myself
I actually have considered these factors, but they don't seem to apply to her. I briefly considered that she may view religion as some kind of novelty to have fun with, but I doubt that's the case either.

Anyway, it's not important. Just something about her that kinda piqued my curiosity.

anyone want to ponder the questions of afterlife and religion/religious history Mysterious Universe is a decent podcast for it. Their Christmas special this past year is a good one talking about what the Holiday is made up from all the Germanic and Roman type festivals that were absorbed into what is now considered Christmas and they've had a few shows talking about the afterlife and what exists beyond this world. Also one from a couple weeks back talks of the origins on the story of Moses and who it was based upon.

> almost everything that happens on this planet is ultimately Human
I don't think that's quite it; if it was just about humans, they would blame humans. It's about a drive to give a why to everything. Hurricane Katrina, brain parasites, famine, drought, and other things where if humans have any involvement, it's tangential and hard to pin down at best. But a lot of people just can't accept that Shit Happens, so they use God and tell themselves that it's all part of His great plan and that He cares for them all even though they've already had two miscarriages and just had another, or say it's part of his "wrath" and blame someone else (rarely, themself) for invoking it

>At least in America, Church is the great social meeting ground.
Aye. If I was normal I might consider finding the most liberal church I could and going to it just for the social interaction.

>I think it comes down to 2 real main factors:

>how they perceive themselves as ultimately being good people
They are being good people, better than you. Nobody woke up chipper at five in the morning to pray to nothing, made breakfast for a large family he made with the help of his faith in nothing, then dressed for no reason and went to a nowhere building to donated money to the charity of no one to save people half a world away because they also don't believe in anything. While you sit on your ass complaining about religion, thousands of missionaries and religious charities provide medicine, food and shelter for millions of people in the developing world. Because faith in the Lord is a motivating factor, while atheism is a demotivating factor. I have more respect for a terrorist that explodes a suicide belt in a crowded market than I do for an atheist, because at least the terrorist had courage of conviction.

99.99999% of humanity believes in god, you have to be an arrogant cunt to say billions of people are inferior to you because they have faith in something other than what they can measure. To say that billions of people richer, smarter and downright kinder than you are inferior because they have faith. Because atheism is the most poisonous pride possible, while faith in the Lord makes humble men. That and motivation are the reason why religion works, why religion has held humanity for thousands of years, why the written word and all our civilization rose up around religion as atheism is left in the dust and relegated to mildly insane people rich enough to have the time to question what everyone else sees as plain truth: if yggdrasil doesn't hold up the world, what stops it from falling into the ginnungagap?

What's your first memory, /baw/?
I don't remember anything before I was four, and even at that time I didn't know of anything before that. I was as perfectly functional as a child should have been at that age, but it was like that was the moment I became self-aware. The memory itself is boring, just riding in a car past a tire shop and convenience store on one of the main streets in my hometown.

It was night time and I was in a crib at the end of my parent's bed. I was very hot and uncomfortable so I pulled myself up using the bars and started crying/shouting (I couldn't talk) to get their attention but they ignored me/didn't wake up. There was a window to the left of the crib with no curtains and the streetlight just outside was very bright and very orange which upset me more. It's quite a distressing memory.

I guess I started with an alphabet chart when I was 2 and started spending hours every day with a book and my alphabet chart. When I was three I started bringing the dictionary in it. It's all kind of a fuzz, I think I even remember setting up snakelines of cards in the carpet all over the house all night long, but apparently that was before 2 so how could I? Three is when you're supposed to make actual memories but I don't think that's always true, and your memory is kind of redonk anyways.

Many women choose to have births in warm tubs because the baby is used to an aquatic environment and as long as the cord is attached it will be just fine underwater.

Baby's bones grow a lot so they can heal quickly from things that would cause fractures in adults; their skulls are soft when born, which is a reason to be so careful with them because even with the other resilience if they fall on their head before the skull hardens it can cause severe brain damage. When I was born, the doc yanked too hard on me and broke my collar bone. Then he just handed me to my mom and said to take it easy with me for a few days (as if a new mother wouldn't.)

There was a white cake, and the walls of the church basement (or meeting area?) were white too. I thought this memory was of a wedding for the longest time, but my parents told me recently that it definitely wasn't.

My memories don't come with metadata that tells me the time they were created, so I cannot possibly know which is the "first" or "oldest". I can never know when they took place within a margin of error of a few years unless I can associate them with something that I know had a definite date. Also, they start to get very corrupted due to copying/accessing errors and partial loss of data due to the age and not being well taken care of. Biological memory is a crapshoot.

Before about age 5 or so, I remember very little. A few quick flashes of images, like being in a crib, playing with toys, being at a relative's house, nightmares I had, or other such things. For the most part, the things I remember before age 10 or so are very vague, and a lot of times have become false memories. I remember doing something, and the basic "description" of what happened is still there (as a writer, I tend to remember things in descriptions rather than images) and I use that "description" to compose an image based on newer memories such as when I looked at pictures and when I encountered the same location. They're more "memories of a reconstructed image of an older memory", now.

It's like this: Suppose there was a holocaust survivor, and she is in her late 90's — doesn't remember what happened very well anymore. She is approached by a film director who wants to make a movie based on what happened to her. To help her remember, he provides her with pictures of the other people that were there, maps of the concentration camp, letters that she wrote to her family, historical facts, etc.. The film that is later produced is only in part the actual events as she remembers them; a great deal of it is the story she and the director reconstructed, as well as some creative leaps that director had to take to fill in the holes.

So my older memories are reconstructed a bit like that, except all taking place inside my mind. Based on what I know about the human brain/mind/memory, everyone (at least those who don't have eidetic memory) does the same, except they aren't consciously aware of the process and mistakenly believe all their memories to be pure and perfect. The degree, of course, varies between individuals. Personally, I tend to forget nearly everything that I don't consider important, which is nearly everything.

I think this happened when I was 3-4.

It was a family reunion, I was sitting on the edge of my great aunt's pool and my brother was swimming around. I was playing with a tea set (one of those plastic toy ones) that was floating in the water. I went to grab a cup that was floating away and fell into the pool. Of course I couldn't swim yet but I don't remember being scared, just thinking that the tile pattern that lined the pool looked nice. It was teal and white.

The earliest full memory I have is when I was 7 or 8, I think, so about 20 years ago.

I would move the puppies back and she would just keep taking them out until we just closed off the doggy door for a bit.

I actually often don't have that good a grasp of how long ago my memories are from. I do remember being very young and asking about other, half-remembered places that I had been conflating with each other, like a mall that had a sunroof and some aquarium or zoo we went to that had a room with a glass roof. Not how much of it is an actual memory, but I have recollections of seeing on television how most people learned to walk, and deciding to deliberately do it differently just to prove to myself that I could. I waited until a room was cleared to have the carpets cleaned, carefully stood up, measured by sense of balance, carefully sat down and then stood back up when I got a bit shaky, and then when I felt ready I walked across the middle of the room without falling over on my first try, showing once and for all that careful preparation can in fact obviate the need for falling over and hurting yourself.

3 years and two months old. Seeing my baby brother for the first time. It's a disconnected stream of mostly static images at this point instead of a unified film. Peering out of the car window. Middling around while my father spoke to a desk worker in the hospital lobby. Blinding beams of sunlight exploding through the opened blinds in my mother's room. His tiny, still pruney face. My twin and I receiving little plastic helicopters, presumably so we wouldn't be bored while our parents had to do baby stuff.

I can also recall getting across the living room in one of those bouncer chairs, which would obviously be older than the hospital memory. But it's hard to know how much of that is constructed and thus false. Maybe I just watched an old home video at some point and my mind fabricated the first person view.

Because such outbursts tend to have the roles reversed.

Note that I wasn't trying to say that equality is bad, nor the situation good, but that "equality" means equal to the greatest extent possible: while it means more women in the boardroom and at the programmer's desk, it also means more women in the mines and on the factory floor.

What's it matter? I didn't get my bachelor's until I was 24. Now while this may not make you feel better, you need to realize that this was late for me because I was already a 5th year senior but I also had to take a year off due to financial problems.

That's downright normal. People graduate high school at 18-19 years old, take a year off to work, vacation or get your shit together like 90% of people out there, add 8 semesters of university to that which may even be sporadic thanks to coop, and consider most people get their official grades half a year to a year after.

A honeypot sounds likely. If not, my best guess is that it's malware; I would be surprised if there was actual CP to be had at the given link. The virus is probably the ransomware variety (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ransomware_%28malware%29). By doing this with CP, that makes it far more likely the idiot that downloads it will pay up because to get help from someone else might mean they have to admit to looking for CP, so they'll pay the $300(0) or whatever to get access to their computer back.

This. You can't even discuss the idea of privilege without it being a foul word these days.

I actually think it's largely an aspect of more of the general population getting on the internet. Prior to about 2005, the internet was largely dominated by men, and the echo chamber it created is.... still not really understood, I'd say. I would describe what we're seeing now as a kind of backlash of integration with the rest of society. The "tumblr-sphere" is just as insular and just as self-feeding as the 4chan-sphere. In certain disturbing ways, they actually resemble mirror-universe channers, constantly crying about their own bullshit and hunting people down online and attacking them based on their own sets of nebulous values. There are of course, important topics that should be discussed and should be known, especially as the face of technology changes the face of civilization. But being a rational voice is actually a very subjective thing at the best of times, let alone in the information din of the Internet.

Fat acceptance is fine in certain contexts. Being fat has its issues and I urge everyone to get to a healthy body weight, but people should feel good in their own skin.

Feeling good about yourself doesn't mean that you have to be perfect and I would rather not give people all sorts of mental issues for what they look like when they can just lose the weight and not take the mental baggage with them. Maybe I'm crazy but it seems like in most cases it's easier to solve being overweight than it is to solve problems with the human mind.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that people should lose the weight but not necessarily feel bad about being fat.
>> No. 389023
In my experience as someone who isn't even close to a professional anything, self-image issues about weight are usually not solved by slimming up a bit.
>> No. 389024
It's not about encouraging people to be obese and not lose weight, it's about people treating you as a human being regardless of how much you weigh. Also, having a supportive community can help people lose weight in a healthy way, and many people do. "Fat acceptance" doesn't mean "stop caring that you're fat" or "being fat is amazing." Honestly if you think it's the second, you've probably just come across some fetishists.

If you've been considerably overweight for most of your life you probably got made fun of for it, felt judged a lot (that wasn't just you making stuff up in your head: they really do stare at you as you eat food and think about how you shouldn't be eating because you should be dieting to stop being such a gross lazy asshole) and got preached at by people who seem to believe that you haven't yourself noticed that you're fat and that you should do something about it. This is the sort of thing that causes people to be depressed, which makes them not want to do anything, which makes them gain even more weight. Or they develop eating disorders and nobody--not even some doctors--will believe that they are starving themselves when they are still overweight. If you are alone and NOBODY is telling you that you have intrinsic value as a human being, but EVERYONE is saying that you would have value--or at least that we'd recognise that you did all along--if only you'd drop a bunch of pounds, the chances of you living a full and healthy life and successfully losing weight and keeping it off are very low, which is the reality for many people out there. You need a support system, and the "fat acceptance" community does do this for people who don't have friends and family who will help them out. Congrats if you willed yourself down to a healthy weight with no encouragement whatsoever but that's actually very difficult to do.

Please don't become one of those assholes who are like, "I lost weight so if you can't do it my way, you're a lazy shit who isn't trying hard enough." Seems to me that once you shed a ton of weight you actually don't shed the self-loathing along with it, but now that you're not fat anymore, it's just directed at other people who look like you used to. Have you caught yourself doing that yet? You've probably done it.
>> No. 389025
I have no problem with people being fat and content with their life. I specifically dislike the people who encourage it or brush aside legitimate health concerns that stem from or are exacerbated by being overweight. I also find issue with those who discourage people who are trying to lose weight. The latter is common if the person's friends or family are also overweight.
I lost weight because I knew doing so would help with some of the physical problems I had, not because I disliked myself.
I do understand psychological factors make losing weight hard for some people, and I would never condone being an asshole to someone because of their size.

They'll never stop giving a shit, Tooth. Living in a global, connected, modern multiculture means that no matter what you do in your life, people will resent you or condescend to you for it. There is no escaping this. The good thing about the fat acceptance movement is that it's teaching people that in order to better yourself, you need to accept yourself first, at which point you'll either find weight loss easy or just accept the body you have without having it be a mental anchor that keeps you unhappy.

The problems only come about when it's co-opted by insecure people who just want to shout away everything that makes them feel bad about themselves. Skinny people, magazines about skinny people, asking skinny people how they got skinny, articles on the health effects of obesity, people finding skinny people attractive, etc.

somebody doesn't know that the most attractive thing about a person often is their personality. Physical, superficial beauty is overvalued by our society, and no amount of subjective physical attractiveness makes up for being an utter shitlord IRL.

I don't know, man. First of all, some men find larger women more attractive than smaller women.

Physical appeal is like advertising. It could be the best movie/TV shows in the world, but nobody cares if you've never heard of it (internet people who stay in all day) or if the commercial is shit (unattractive).

I've met a lot of Speed Racer ass girls who didn't command a second glance at when we first met but became irresistible in a few months when I finally got to see the Blu-Ray (get to know them). It's not hard to see why this is unfair though, because if their asses were a bit fatter, or their makeup game was a bit more on point, they'd be considered Avatars and Avengers. Love comes easier to attractive people because people are more willing to actually put in work trying to get to know them.

This love shit isn't all that complicated at all. If you live in a big city, you probably see at least a dozen soul-mate level guys and girls every day. The hard part is actually getting to know them intimately, because most people don't just stick out.

Also, the shape of your boobs and butt, rather than their volume. Barring that you can locate a black celt because that is definitely "black people hot". Problem solved.

Is that really what you think of any girl you try and get with? Really dude, if you are drawing that arbitrary a line between people, even in the long run, all you're going to end up with are "fuck sockets" you don't actually care about, because that's the only kind of girl who will really go for you and who you can really go for. You might be able to stick your dick in someone you don't respect for a single evening but it will be hollow and you'll still be alone the next morning. Physical attractiveness plays a role, yes, but if there isn't any actual connection, she'll discard you as soon as she learns what you are and what you're going for. Or worse, she will not see what you are doing at all and you will be stuck with a girl you can't talk with, can't make sense with, and who you will ultimately probably end up paying child support to. Think about it. If you're just trying to go for these girls for one night of passion, who's to say that they don't field requests from dozens of guys just like you, daily. If you do not mesh, if you do not understand them as a person, it's perfectly reasonable that they will see you as being just as disposable as you see them.

Did you not read the end of that sentence? There's a huge difference between finding someone in a club you can party with for the night, and finding someone at your job/church etc you could have a relationship with. The first is based on physical attractiveness, the second on personality.

No one likes fat men for being fat, so no one should like fat women for being fat either. If we can't have this, feminism has failed.

Fat women should be liked for supplemental qualities like fat men are. You know, being good cooks, singing opera, being fetishes for gay men who think they're bears from all the acid they take. In short, fat women should be liked for eating a bunch of ice cream, having a lot of gay friends, smelling like the ocean, and being mad at pornography.

After this I understand the need for the fat-acceptance movement. People don't usually like it when others smell like the ocean, and that's because society's many fishmongers have sold a patriarchal sexist notion that that means decay and death and not unleashed femininity.
