Can a woman be conservative without being called a pick-me? Anonymous 79773[Reply]

I'm a conservative, but I can never seem to be able to discuss my views amongst females without being called a pick-me. I'm not even an anti-feminist or anything, I'm just not a feminist myself.

I’m pretty sure I’ve said this on another thread but being a pick-me is less about what you believe and more about why you believe it.
For example, if you (OP) want limited government social programs and an emphasis on the nuclear family (assuming that’s what you mean by “conservative”) because you genuinely believe it’s better for society that’s not pick-me. However, if you say you want those things in order to put down other women for male attention (think trad thots), that’s pick me shit. Hell, I’d even say many libs and lefties are even bigger “pick-mes” if their public persona is largely around pleasing men/bashing women.
>pic related
So basically it’s a mindset, not a set of beliefs. One can argue that you only hold these conservative beliefs because you have internalized misogyny but that’s not as simple as wanting to “get picked”. The popularization of “pick-me” and “NLOG” is yet another example of how nuance cannot survive on the internet.

Depends on what kind of conservative. If you're overtly trying to appeal to guys with your views, that's what gets you pegged as a pick-me. And it'll get you walked all over. Join your moid in the fagbashing and don't question why and down the road he might bring home gonorrhea because he "got curious" about something he totally wasn't repressing. But if you're just a fiscal conservative, well, welcome to the party of hating both parties, I guess. Good luck finding a moid who isn't a total redneck or soyboy.

what websites do you browse outside of large conglomerates like twitter, facebook, instagram, tumblr, etc. i'd like to find cute little forums ala old internet but it's difficult – genuinely feels like everything is on private discord servers these days.

Has anyone here ever used the site ExperienceProject before it became defunct? I found it was a small niche forum website where you could get to vent and just talk about your problems with other people. As someone who suffers with mental illness, that site meant a lot to me.

There's quite a few imageboards out there though most of them are pretty dead like late.city and comfy.chat. They're interconnected so once you find one there's a dozen more under /friends/ etc.

As a teen I used forumieren.com to find and make forums. There's probably still forums floating around if you want something you can have a profile on. Try to find something for an interest/hobby you have.


Sidenote, has anyone here ever been on Livewire? I used it around the tailend of the site, 2012 or 2013 but it was a lot of fun.

I think the worst kind of work is when you get given menial jobs, treated like you're incapable, and not allowed to solve anything for yourself. I used to work in automotive production and it was the most draining, soul-sucking job I've ever had. Any time I was spoken to by a higher-up, it felt patronizing. The only good thing I can say is the paycheck, and it really helped with living on my own.

I'm back in school now to get into the aviation industry which is my true passion. Hoping to have my aircraft maintenance engineering license in a couple years.

>Which fields do generally higher IQ/savvier women excel in

Some really smart friends of mine are all in engineering of some sort. Mechanical engineering in particular is full of a lot of really gifted and talented women.

My advice is just follow things you're passionate about. If money is your priority you might get stuck in a depressing job. You need to find something YOU like to do, even if it's a career not many women are currently in. There's only a handful of women in my entire school, and the rest of my class is all male, but fuck 'em. This is what I enjoy doing.

It can't be fully protected against but the best thing you can do is vet family members as closely as possible and don't let anyone who seems remotely sketchy be alone with your kids, even if it causes fights. Don't have a kid with a moid who will be fine letting his creepy brother have sleepovers with your kids because "he's family".

Anonymous 79250

>>79233
> the best thing you can do is vet family members as closely as possible
THIS. If you sense anything off with a family member (whether it’s your partner’s or your own) do not leave your kid alone with them (even your boys).
Statistically, if it’s gonna happen it’s gonna be a family member or close family friend, people just don’t like hearing that their brother or best friend could be a creep so “stranger danger” is taught instead.

Oh yeah it's such a sad book and can easily bring you to tears. I read it the first time when I was 11 but decided to reread it again this year since I have such a small number of physical books. Still hits you in the feels. Crazy to think that it was considered a sci-fi short story in its time lol.
>>80179
No, definitely not! Too much money lol. I might use free book websites. Right now I am reading this book: https://archive.org/details/hmpulhamesqui00marq The site has a lot of archived books too. Do you know any other free pdf and book sites? I don't have an e-reader so I will just read on my laptop or phone. I do plan on buying physical books to read on the beach though.
