how to be normie Anonymous 28669[Reply]

anyone else just feel like they're too far gone? i try to hard to be a normal, happy citizen of society but it just feels so alien to me. like a large chunk of my high school years and uni were spent online, friendless and barely socialising. and now trying to get back into the normie world feels so difficult. how do i integrate? where do i even begin? i only have 1 friend, haven't had a job in 2 years and have lost pretty much all empathy at this point. also i'm boring as hell.

That's because point of normie conversation is just to socialize, not exchange ideas or share information. Normie conversation is person-focused first. It's not that you're more intelligent, it's just that you're prioritizing different things. It's great when you can find other people that want the same things from conversation as you, but you have to change your whole paradigm when talking to normies.

Social situations don't usually make me anxious or i don't dread it when i come home but its like i cant like anyone anymore. I had some friends similar to me around but they're gone now and that made me realize this. i tolerate people but inside im irrationally angry.

No you don't. Just, like don't talk about CP in front of people IRL. Does someone else use your mouth for you? I don't get how that happens.

Does she not see pedophilia or cp as a problem? I'd hardly be surprised, it's things like this that remind me I'm still on an imageboard after all.

half the time it's caused by the bad choices of the male too though. all it takes is for him to break the condom by accident, or lie and say how his "pull out game" is fool proof.
pregnancy doesnt happen in a vacuum, but the difference is only the woman will be forced to pay for both of their mistakes.

Honestly, if you agree to just pulling out, that's on you. It doesn't take a genius to know that it's not a particularly foolproof method. Even with contraception failing, you always made the choice of having sex in the first place. There is not a single method of contraception that is 100% safe (even tying tubes has a ~0.5% failure rate), so you should be aware that it's a gamble every time.

Anonymous 28775

no one said these girls were geniuses, but it also takes the man to unironically think itll work too. i hear stories of men doing this shit online all the time.
>you made the choice to have sex
so did the men, so why is it the woman must bear all the suffering, and have to, you know, think about the actual ramifications of their actions, while the man can do whatever then fuck off to another state leaving her single and alone, for his mistakes? its his sperm afterall, if he was content with just blowjobs they wouldnt be in that situation to begin with.

imo men should be forced to pay for abortion too, they caused it after all. and theyre messing with a potential human life by just fucking around carelessly

Anonymous 28776

Yes, it takes two to tango, I never denied that, and I actually had an issue with the analogy for that reason as it is the one that removed your agency. Why women suffer the consequences is just how nature works, and that's something you really can't change. That's all the more reason for you to be more careful about it, because men are probably not going to care as much about it. Though even they can sometimes suffer the consequences if they want an abortion and you don't, or vice versa.

Health care where I live is mostly taxpayer funded, so the costs factor is essentially a nonissue here.

A moose walks into a bar. Both the staff and customers were quite alarmed, the bartender proceeded to call animal control whom promptly removed it from the premises.

A Jewish man and a Muslim man walk into a bar. They don't actually know each other they just kind of walked in at the same time. To the disappointment and ire of his parents the Muslim man is pretty westernized as he grew up in the country and he isn't that religious so he drinks socially with his girlfriend.

A transwoman, a socially stunted anime watcher, and a mentally ill freak walk into a bar. It was a slow night so she was the only one in the bar. sorry

A bartender walks into a bar. He uses the bathroom real quick before starting his shift for the evening.

Mickey Mouse is having a nasty divorce with Minnie Mouse. Mickey spoke to the judge about the separation. "I'm sorry Mickey, but I can't legally separate you two on the grounds that Minnie is mentally insane…" Mickey replied, "I didn't say she was mentally insane, I said that she's fucking Goofy!"

Probably because there are so many variants in their designs since they are still innovating in technology. Meanwhile arliners are all the same spare for some few small design variations since they have largely matured as a technology

Anonymous 28740

That's true, there's a lot more weird and wacky variation in fighter craft.

More to the point though, I used to go to all the air shows with my grandfather. He grew up during WW2 and loved planes then, and he totally instilled it in me. So I guess the fighters will always be kinda special to me, just remembering him.

>it is full of women saying that the victim should have said something years ago and that waiting this long is suspicious

This never fails to shock and hurt me. Other women saying that waiting invalidates what happened, your feelings and the abuse. Or saying it's probably a lie because you waited to come forward with the accusation.

Some girls were afraid of the abuser, or thought they wouldn't be taken seriously, especially when they're young. Is it this hard to understand? I know we've heard many cases of false accusations lately, but the point isn't that. Is that waiting to talk about your rape = it never happened/you're lying, when that couldn't be further from the truth. Idk, it just upsets me that many women seem to think otherwise, maybe they want to act like handmaidens or get male approval, but it's just depressing.

What do you think, /b/?

do you know if she's teling the truth or if she's lying?

Anonymous 28761

I don't know, the news came out yesterday as far as I know so there's a lot to come I guess. but that's not the point of my post anyway. My point is that people blame the victims even more if they take time to come forward with the truth and accuse the rapist, when sometimes girls and women don't do it right away because they're afraid, or scared, or think people won't take them seriously and need time to prepare to take action.

Anonymous 28763

and sometimes people falsely accuse others for money
that's why it's important to know if she's lying or not

Anonymous 28766

learn to read. this thread is to focus on the fact that actual victims are mistreated because they waited to open up. of course there are people who lie or accuse others without proof, but there's a shit ton of assholes who mistreat REAL rape victims because they waited to have the courage to speak up.

Capitalism is inherently anti-women imho. You strike a good note with 3rd world immigration but the economy doesn't care where the children come from - as long as they come.
Western women win enough rights to not be living inside a breeding mill? Just offload it to the 3rd world! No birth control pills, legal spousal rape, and those who immigrate from there are anti-feminist too by virtue of being steeped in the culture. What else would make the owners of capital happy?

There's that but also the fact that an immigrant is more likely to accept low pay and poor labor conditions as it's still an upgrade. This gets exploited to keep wages low but also gets used as a patriotic shaming, "She is grateful to work 2 jobs for minimum wage, you should be grateful life in America is so good!" or "They do the jobs you won't do!".

And then racists and reactionaries blame leftists and feminism for "white genocide" because we're sympathetic/tolerant when capitalism itself is to blame for multiculturalism.

I recall six days, knowing youd be gone
Then five days, then four, three, two and then one
Saw straining of ropes, increasingly weighted
The crack in our love, when it first hesitated

So the hours do go, and a child is not
A thing before man, and then once forgot
So elders do die, so dreams even rot
So I am not young, and this is my lot

My lot not ours, though hours it is so
The sun there, for me, rises up from the stars
Still rises the moon, wherever you are
Two things in exchange, same path but still far
