Reddit? Anonymous 10778
Do you use reddit?
If so, which subs do you recommend?
I found myself returning to lurk on r/credibledefense and r/geopolitics quite frequently. Refreshing to see a level of discourse between folks whose consumption of political reporting goes beyond the 24-hour news cycle.
I know reddit is fine and everything, but I always feel embarrassed when I stumble upon it due to the rivalry between them and chan sites. I just don’t like the whole “good day sir, love your doggo, you deserve bacon! :D” nice guy crap they have going on.
>If so, which subs do you recommend?
Anything that isn't political. It pisses me off when I see some opinion downvoted, just because it didn't allign with their shitty hivemind, even when it was laid out rational.
>nice guy crap they have going on.
I especially hate it when a tranny posts her timeline and the comments are like "OMG u are beatiful" and so on. And don't you dare to say that HE still looks like a man.
the good thing about reddit is that they even have communities for more obscure interests like urban exploration and what not.
>>10791>Anything that isn't political.
Did you visit the subs I mentioned at all?
And we get it. The front page is shit. Yada yada. I want this thread to be about finding the nicer parts of the website, not the same old tired complaints of the problems which everyone's already aware of.
I like r/nosleep sometimes and I visit r/tumblrinaction when I'm really bored (despite their tumblr-tier tendency to defend trannies and to post sane feminists just because they're "TERFS" which puzzles me) but don't go there much for anything else even though I know some subs about subjects I like are good. It's hard to take the site seriously.
I like AskReddit, Unorthodog, TipofmyTongue and WhatisthisThing
Whenever I read r/relationships I feel like a woman with a titanium backbone lol.
I can't take ribbit seriously since the whole gamergate fiasco…
>>10786>nice guy crap
That's exactly how I feel. And I'm talking about guys I know personally who spend way too much time on leddit. They always seem super fake IRL. It's probably just a coincidence but still eh.
I visit r/stepparents because I'm a fairly young stepmother and almost cried with relief finding some solidarity with others going through the same struggles. Mommy blogs and chans aren't exactly good for that sort of thing. After I found that I subbed to a few others like r/lfg and r/DnD, which I know is available on the chans /tg/ but people aren't as big of a dick to you on reddit. I also visit some minor trashy TV subs since they tend to move faster.
I like r/askreddit because I like to read about other peoples' stories and experiences about things. Sometimes I visit r/raisedbynarcissists to feel better about my own nmom and my shoddy relationship with her.
Other subreddits I visit at random and can't say I frequent even weekly.
Things that could make reddit better? Doing away with karma scores. It's still possible to push liked posts to the top with hidden voting without there having to be a "score" for users.
It's annoying to see posts blatantly whoring for karma, and to also have bitter users downvote something just because they think a post is trying to get karma.
I do enjoy post histories though. It lets me know if the person I'm replying to is worth the effort or is just a troll user.
I dislike it.
The upvote/downvote system encourages herd behavior, posts that challenge the common opinion are de facto hidden, since they get downvoted to the bottom of the comments.
Their "fame" and "reddit gold" or whatever it's called are even worse, I can't stand e-drama and queen bees. Popularity contests are annoying IRL, on the internet it becomes downright pathetic.
With that many companies or e-celebs participating and getting too much attention, it's also a place for advertisement, which is bad for discussion.
And let's not forget, they manage to be even more cringy than channers in their "culture". It's a haven for normies of the "omg I'm such a nerd :PPPPPPP" kind.
Small subreddits dedicated to very specific topics are fine I guess … Somehow there are some information that are difficult to find outside of reddit. I've been using the drug-related subreddits for instance, though I only posted twice, once for asking a question, the other time for saying thank you.
I'm a pleb and I mostly just go to normie front page humor subreddits like /r/funny and /r/jokes when I want to see a lot of things that will make me laugh.
I only use it for r/cripplingalcoholism. It's nice to be able to talk to other degenerates that know, and don't give a shit, about me being an alcoholic. We know we're fucked up, but at least we can talk to each other without feeling the constant pressure of judgement.
How bad is your alcoholism anon? Last I checked in that subreddit some posters were trying to see how many drinks a day would cause wet brain later. It's just…sad.
this how im tryna …
One advantage though is the upvote downvote system lets you quickly filter out trash opinions. On a site like this, someone can post something thats complete trash (like on 4chan for example poltards will literally start thinly veiled "gaming" threads so they can push their weird ass agendas. like "which games are halal guys? I want ones preferably with goat fucking in them :)") keep in mind trash threads like that are right next to threads with actual content in them, and you now have to sift through that garbage to find actual video game discussion. then you find a video game thread and you think youre good, but nope, the thread gets derailed by some moron posting a BLACKED porno meme pic and asking if the one female character would ever fuck a black guy. That shit doesn't happen on reddit
I think a site like this would benefit from upvotes and downvotes that dont do anything. like you can just upvote or downvote a post to show that you agree or disagree. Lots of people dont want to take the time to type out a full response, but they want to express their approval or disappoval. the upvotes and downvotes arent tracked or recorded in anyway, theyre just there to show other users the general "feel" other thread goers had on that post.
Ah, I'm not as bad as that. Yeah, I know I'm actively killing myself but I'm not out to do dumb shit like that. I'm a pretty high functioning alcoholic. I have a full time job, a home, relationship, etc. Though I'm basically destroying my relationship because of my drinking but I'm probably better off left to my own devices anyways. I really should just break up with him so I don't have to hide booze all over the house anymore.
>I don't have to hide booze all over the house anymore.
Pro tip: people who live with alcoholics notice this shit. You're hideouts are not as good as you might think. He probably is either in denial or he's afraid to talk to you about it
I grew up with alcoholic mother who did the same and always stumbled upon this shit
>>10907>filter out trash opinions>trash>optinions>I disagree with it so it's shit/racist/misagonist/wrong/etc…
You are the sole reason reddit sucks.
Venting time. I constantly get fucking downvoted for stating facts, like quoting the law or statistics from reputable sites just because people disagree with it.
Imagine it, people are throwing poop around in a topic they know shit about it, I quote the law word by word to make thing clear. And what happens? My post disappears by the next morning. No sane person can defend this.
Huh this has happened to me too, anon. I was in a thread where people were discussing what the average # of sexual partners is, and I posted a study that stated people with over 10 partners were in the top 10% across all age groups. I wasn't even being judgemental in my post but I got downvoted to like -50 and the only rebuttal I got was, "well it varies wildly by location and your social group". Like no shit. I was posting a national average.
If they think being promiscuous isn't a big deal, why are they so insecure if someone suggests their number is statistically high?
Some opinions are bad and some people should shut the fuck up especially if they're being obsessive and deranged about it.
To me you are the one who sounds obsessive. So much that you can't take a different opinion.
However I'm drunk. So may not have the best judgment. :3
>>10937>why are they so insecure if someone suggests their number is statistically high?
I'm curious about your source.
I mean I'm no genius and I'm not sure of the context of the discussion, but there does seem to be something problematic with reporting and measuring questions about sexual partners. After all, we only know of what the individual chooses to report and we have no way to prove if they report the number lower or higher due to bad memory or just lying. It also depends on how big the sampling of the study was. Even if they surveyed 13,000 people that's hardly an array to draw conclusions about the national average.
I've read a study that said Gen X had an average of 10 partners, whereas millennials had an average of 8. It must feel a little insulting to get roped in with the same percentage of people who've slept with 60 partners just because they've slept with 10 and an arbitrary difference of 2 people is what did it.
I can understand why others would get frustrated at those who seem to take these studies at face value when at best they only illustrate general trends.
And heaven help you if you're trying to make inferences about other behaviors like infidelity, divorce, or mental problems based on the number of partners when the group you're saying this to largely doesn't exhibit such behaviors. Yep, that's like thwacking a bee's nest.
This is my first reply on this subject manner you god damned weirdo.
Anyone else frequent this sub? Am I taking crazy pills or does it seem like in images of couples, people there are always calling the male as slightly more attractive when in actuality the woman is noticeably more attractive than the guy? I feel like there's a conspiracy there to "take women down a notch" or something.
I scrolled through the sub, and this does not seem to be the case to me. In the pic you posted, they look to be in the same league. Can you give an example?
I havent been to the sub but guys do that online everywhere. It's transparent and corny.
I'd much rather stare at the girl than look at the guy. He looks generic as fuck. Her cute nose alone body slams every average feature the guy has.
This is dumb as fuck. Beauty is subjective as it can be. I personally think the girl looks way more attractive than him while he looks a bit like a prune.
Samefagging to add there's so much more to attraction than looks. Hence why there are several couples out there that have 1 person who looks more conventionally attractive than their partner. These people make it look so simple. I am going to sage this for samefag and rant but this is just depressing. I am so fucking relieved that I have friends and a loving partner who don't think this way because if the rest of our generation does, this is absolutely sad. I don't know if it's just a symptom of the overuse of the internet, Photoshop, plastic surgery, heavily faked social media and whatnot, but something is terribly wrong.
lol they're 23 and 20? I thought they were mid/late 20s
imo the guy looks definitely like he's in his late twenties, but though the girl has a football coach housewife look, she does look twenty.
overall, though…his weird smunched up eyes are uggo af. the girl has a cute smile, what seems to be the start of a nice butt, but her eyebrows could use some work. I think she's a lot cuter than he is.
She looks like a youthful 22-25. Definitely not someone who was a teenager just a year or so ago.
Taking into account her hair/makeup and the guy looking like he's confident like he has a decent job, they seem pretty equally yoked.https://www.reddit.com/r/EqualAttraction/comments/7tizos/what_does_everyone_think_of_us/
idk if it's trying to "take women down a notch" but yeah, they're weirdly lenient on the guy when the girl is a lot better looking (all individual pics so it's not a thing about people looking better among groups or something like >>11599 suggested)
hm. see, here, i think the girl is definitely not as attractive as the guy is. she relies on angles and her cake face, whereas the guy looks more youthful and seems to be open about sharing different angles of his face.
i'm lesbian, though, i might have higher standards for most girls than average.
The premise of this whole subreddit is stupid. Like people have mentioned, "attraction" is subjective; that word normally encompasses non-physical aspects that aren't available without a lot of projecting or nitpicking. It's not as bad as self-post shit like r/roastme, but it implies that there is some kind of standard for rating people physically that means something deeper when there isn't. What difference does it make that a couple "match" in physical attractiveness? Does that change how they see each other if they are together for reasons that aren't solely shallow?>>11592
You're not crazy but you probably have different tastes than the average reddit user (male, white, 20s-30s, US-based).
What I don't get is why people would post as a couple in that subreddit. Wouldn't one of them end up feeling hurt/insecure if everyone in the thread said one of them was more attractive?
Probably because one person of the couple is looking for external validation or leverage to use against their significant other in petty arguments. I doubt that many of the couples are posted knowingly by both people.
I hate it, but I'm addicted to it. I even have an ip block installed to my phone so I can't access the t, that I disable every once in a while because "I must check it". There is a localized subreddit in my native language that is pure cancer, and a cultural one that is mostly noobs, people who deem themselves important and naive elaborations. I don't know why I keep coming back. Guess I like shitposting
Honestly I find it really easy to tune out the bad aspects of reddit when I actively go out and look for subreddits that pertain to my interests and aren't terrible. I used to be subscribed to a lot of TV show subreddits but I unsubbed because they sucked. It's really not that big of a deal.
The subs I genuinely enjoy are r/changemyview, r/Unresolvedmysteries, and r/indieheads. I follow a lot of self help subs too but that was so I could start weeding out the ones where I just spent hours looking at bullshit. I really enjoy r/changemyview because it's a well moderated discussion that allows for different viewpoints to be challenged without getting downvoted to oblivion.
>Hide child comments
Makes it so much easier to skip past all the pun threads and only read the comment threads you're interested in.
usually just use r/chickflixxx for porn lol. everything else got boring for me after a year or so
I do but so many of the bigger subreddits are full of people who are straight up retarded. r/AsianBeauty is a haven for weird SJWs and clueless normies, their inside jokes are cringy as hell and they try way too hard to sound knowledgeable. So basically as in any other bigger subreddit.
I read my native country's sub, it's nice when it's not full of Americans asking for tourist advice for the umpteenth time and bragging about learning a foreign language. I also visit subs for some of my other interests such as some niche games, and the industry I work in.
Thanks for the rec, anon.>>20328>r/AsianBeauty is a haven for weird SJWs and clueless normies, their inside jokes are cringy as hell
Really? I sometimes browse that subreddit and don't really see it.
I use Reddit but I'm something of a lurker, even if I have something to say, I usually don't. I do comment on smaller hobby/interest boards where the quality of discussion tends to be higher.
I do pretty much the same. Niche subreddits can be a goldmine.
They really can! As niche Internet pages and fansites have disappeared, I've found a lot of these folk have taken to Reddit. It's nice to engage in real discussion with people with the same uncommon interests as you.
I really enjoy makeuprehab since i'm trying to curb my shopping addiction, and xxfitness is nice sometimes for advice on finding cute workout gear
On the actual sub you don't see it too too much aside from the "praise Snezus xDDD" jokes and "Ow my wallet", but the discord is a cesspit. People on the sub used to be a lot more smarmy and lecture people about how sebaceous filaments are not blackheads etc but they've since calmed down.
I browse an options subreddit, but unless you are into trading derivatives, there is no point.
The only times I felt SJW vibes on these skincare related subreddits are when discussions about diet are taking place. They flip their shit whenever anyone suggests that their shitty diet may have something to do with the fact that they're breaking out all the time and they ought to try changing it. Especially ironic for them to go full on HAES when they love to pride themsevles on being driven by scientific evidence i.e. autistically combing through studies on NIH.
It's wallstreetbets isn't it
there are no good financial/trading subreddits at all
WSB is cancer but not as bad as when it first was WoWS/Robin-hood era of 2013-2015.
No it's /r/options. Unfortunately, with the push of options on the robinhood platform, the subreddit is filled with "I bought a call on ______ why isn't it going up waaah" because no one who posts actually learned about how options work anymore. They don't even understand IV or the greeks. So I heavily decreased the amount I browse. There use to be great discussion but it has since gotten flooded by newcomers.
I don’t understand that. I’m not gonna be a hypocrite and pretend I’m a total healthnut but even I know there are certain foods to avoid and stuff you can do like drinking more water if you want better skin. It is what it is.
To me reddit's "general" subreddits (news/photos/music/gifs etc) and general discussion/debate subreddits (r/politics) are useless due to a number a factors but most notably the style and lingo of the general reddit community mentioned ITT I could go into detail later. Shitposting on image-boards or even twitter is better if you're bored and want to post garbage.
I use Reddit mainly as a reference community of sorts, and for that function it is very useful. For instance I would argue it is the single best community reference site in the internet for general reference stuff (excluding niche stuff like stack-exchange and specialized stuff like tech support forums) as quora is terribly formatted and it's users tend to go off on a tangent for a simple question. Reddit is extremely useful for instance translating a song from a foreign language, obtaining a answer for a simple history question, etc. However once you go into specialized niches (history, science, academics, econ/finance etc) reddit is just useless and other specialized niche sites for those subjects/interests serve better purpose.
The main problem with reddit I would argue that while the general reference/knowledge subreddits are extremely useful and friendly to newcomers/hobbyist interested in said subject the more specialized/niche a subject becomes the more slow a subredddit becomes or it maintains a sizeable community that declines in content quality due to in-community sub-reddit culture, incompotent mods, and/or circle-jerking. In the first-case you may as well just visit another specialized website that's not as slow as previously mentioned.
The /badecon, /badphilosophy and other "/bad"sub-reddit variants (r/badhistory seems decent tho) are for instance supposed to be actively frequented by "professionals" in said field "pointing out the bad misrepresentations of XXX field" but they end up just being frequented by undergrads spouting off shitty memes (usually consisting of 4ch/twitter memes rehashed/sanitized and edited to make some unfunny inside-joke for said community) in vain sense to feel like their doing something productive or gaining knowledge. I've seen for instance on /badecon redditors who are clearly not professionals in said field managing to gain influence in the clubby circle-jerk community all because they made some shitty memes with inside-jokes a undergrad can come up with. That's just for the "professional" subreddits mentioned; i'm sure subreddits for hobbyist interests like some obscure fandom have had subreddit drama regarding circle-jerking/mod-revolting
TBH "meme" culture shouldn't exist outside of 4ch; just call your original inside jokes what they are (inside jokes) instead of rehashing image-macros and shit, it just makes all humor unoriginal and tiresome. Better yet they feel out of place in the self-righteous/circle-jerk communities of reddit who mostly tend not to like being associated with 4chan despite stealing their memes>>20631
trading forums haven't been penetrated by that /biz/robinhood/wsb demographic yet. Most of those original kiddies either way moved on to crypto instead of polluting other securities (they probably couldn't have enough money to bypass PDT-rule for equities) after the hype cycle for penny stocks, leveraged etfs, and later AMD stocks died off/shifted. Some of them may have actually grown up and moved on from that garbage banter. Stock-twits is still useless and ruined by this cancer tho
That's good to hear. I mean I don't hate the newcomers, but some of them don't even try, you know? They even have a noob thread that they don't always use. When I started learning I use to take actual notes over the material I read and make an effort to educate myself. At this point, I already have the strategy that I think should work for me (fingers crossed), so I guess I am fortunate that I learned before this new wave of craziness happened. I don't know where these forums are that have good content. It'd be nice to know because I do like to stay plugged in, which is why I'll still pop into /r/options every now and then to see anything from the experienced traders. I guess it's also the nature of trading too? You can teach, but if you have a money maker it's generally not in your best interest to give out information. Those generous few that do are a very small minority. So eventually smaller groups that have some good traders get flooded by people wanting in and the quality of the site goes down very quickly.
>>20633>However once you go into specialized niches (history, science, academics, econ/finance etc) reddit is just useless and other specialized niche sites for those subjects/interests serve better purpose.
I feel like the hate against the whole "nice" culture that people associate with reddit is ridiculous. Half the time it's people trying to say people who care about trying to be nice are "fake" when they have nothing to show for how that person is being disingenuous. I don't have a problem with reddit culture, people hate being reminded that other people get affected by what is read online.
What are you referring to by "nice" culture?
Reddit sux azz. I rather commit sudoku than use it…
Reddit is just 4chan lite
exact. i remember not wanting to use it because i thought people would brag and powerlevel for the stupid points and surprise surprise, they do… some are huge cunts. but i have no patience for 4chan anymore and besides cc i don't use imageboards as before, so reddit has become an option for when i am bored.
I don't have an account but I lurk r/waifuism (because I'm pathetic) and r/tales. I don't really like the layout of the site so I don't use it much.
>implying men should dedicate themselves to other people
Real people do not deserve dedications and honors just for existing. You're coming off like a stereotypical dependent woman who can't handle men who don't want women. This isn't cringy because he prefers 2D. It's cringy because of his unrealistic fears of how others perceive him, the attempts to express devotion through consumerism, and the convoluted mental stream that has him simultaneously wanting to announce his "love" (which men can't experience anyway) and feeling trapped by his own fabrications. The fact that the only way you know how to respond is through an anime avatar shows that you don't even understand what you're saying, or that you lack self-awareness.
Also, there is nothing wrong with having a husbando. Fight me irl.
I'm not as anal as they are there. I don't view it as a lifestyle or anything, I wouldn't ever "come out" to my family and friends. I just like collecting merch of my husbando and pretending to talk to him sometimes. It's like a psudeo-relationship where the other party has 0 expectations of you.
A lot of the people who post there are underage (think 13-16) so that can explain a lot of the immature posts.
I don't use reddit because it sucks and realizing that is a scrub filter.
Also you have to go back
I've tried Reddit so many times but every time it disappoints me. People have told me that if you stick to certain subreddits, it's fine but it's not true. The place is full of misogynistic men ready to tear you down for any opinion you have or handmaidens who are fine with female topics being flooded with responses from MTF trans people and have rules to accommodate them (first thing that comes to mind is that badwomensanatomy and twoxchromosomes don't allow "transphobia", even if it's on-topic). I think it's disgusting that subreddits like incels, deepfakes, beating women, men's rights, jailbait and revenge porn are allowed to exist and tbh I wouldn't even want to contribute to a website where things like that exist anyway. Even small subreddits that are for niche hobbies are full of really aggressive men looking for some kind of debate, it's really depressing and idk how anyone browses it regularly.
It's disgusting that subreddit male rights exist?
I just stick to hobby subs and this stuff never comes up in the first place.
>>29733>disgusting that subreddits like incels, deepfakes, beating women, men's rights, jailbait and revenge porn are allowed to exist
ngl browsing Reddit made me lose even more hope in humanity. I've come across deranged users with hundreds of daily comments where I can't tell if they're just trolling and shitposting or they really believe in all the crazy stuff they say. I pray that I'll never come across those misogynistic crazies in real life.
>>29972>made me lose even more hope in humanity
I feel you anon.
you don't feel this way browsing imageboards? they're 100 times worse
I think it has more to do with expectations and frequency. Image boards don't have the same posting frequency, or ability to inspect people's histories. I also generally don't expect people to be badshit insane on Reddit, just have a terminal case of the normies.
Sort of but not as much. Like >>29997
said people aren't posting with their usernames attached. It's depressing to see someone talk about how much they hate "roasties" but it's 10x more depressing when they say that, you check their history and they have a newborn daughter. Imageboards don't represent the majority of the population but Reddit on the other hand is one of the most popular websites on the internet. Same with Facebook which is even worse again because men post hateful shit with their REAL names and faces attached and pictures of their daughter/wife/girlfriend on their cover photo. It's the same shit across all websites, it's just varying degrees of anonymity. I don't think Reddit is any less extreme than imagebords tbh.
Ah ok, I see what you two mean.
I don't ever check people's history pages or care to remember usernames, maybe that's why I have a different pov.
/r/Askreddit threads about creepy experiences are my jam, even if they're always the same.
I only go to reddit for r/fatpeoplestories, r/1200isplenty, r/fatlogic, r/animalcrossingPC, and info on Petscop.
I used to like Reddit before it changed to be more advertiser friendly and before I started using 4chan regularly. The subs I’m in regularly deliver what I want out of them, but there is always a healthy dose of cringe on that website.
I recently discovered this sub for people who got cheated on, there's the slightly saner version /r/survivinginfidelity but the one I found is plain psychotic. It's supposed to be a sub for people who want to mend their relationship after cheating, but unsurprisingly it's full of pickme behavior. Here's the thread that really activated my almonds, they're talking about fantasies of "getting back" at the person who betrayed them and most of the time they're just fantasizing about fucking up the affair partner, not the boyfriend/husband. Of course I think it's reprehensible to sleep with someone who's in a relationship, but that person isn't your problem, your cheating partner is the one who betrayed you.
Anyway here are my favorite posts
>AP allegedly got pregnant during the affair while she was screwing 3 guys, and allegedly had a miscarriage (if the pregnancy was even real, it's for the best - she's a mentally ill alcoholic who can't even keep up with her bills). I was far too tempted to sign her up for buy buy baby coupons. I know her address, and all it would take is a few clicks on a website. She is medically unlikely to ever carry a child to term, so it would thoroughly fuck with her.
This one's just good and honest cringe
>So the day dream is, it’s 5 years from now. I’m married to some Tom Hardy-esc, up and coming star. I’m looking great! Dropped all the weight I gained because of my DB ex bedroom. We run into my exhusband and his AP in front of a movie theater. I Introduce my husband, and then I introduce my ex as my ex (my now awesome husband gives me a significant look, and does the, “I’ve heard a lot about you.” While sizing him up) and then I introduce the AP as his wife, and she has to correct me, explaining they aren’t married. And I say, “oh” with that special touch of surprise, while silently thinking, that’s right, I was the wife. Then some fans ask for a picture with my new awesome husband and he tells the fans that they’ll want me in the pic too because my show, “To My Husbands Next Wife,” just got picked up by Netflix.
Kinda wanna see this (if it ever happened)
>AP 1 has a Twitter following. She posted something about how people would be kinder if they didn’t setup fake accounts/usernames and their real name showed instead. I responded and reminded her that she setup a fake Facebook account to correspond with my husband. I’ve also tweeted images of things he has said about her via text and tagged her in them. In general though I try not to give her any headspace. She’s not special. Just an idiot.
But also kek at
>Affair Partner 1
>implying there are several
God, just cut your losses and move on.
This one sounds like it took place on Tumblr and ngl I'm living for that. Tumblr drama outside of SJW circles was always its own kind of fun
>She likes to pretend she's above it all, so in my "fuck off" email I reminded her I have a visit tracker on my blog and could see every time she stalked it: Almost every day, sometimes multiple times a day, and often late at night, for months. She had actually checked it at 3:00 am the day I sent that email. The visits stopped immediately.
There's a sub for registered sex offenders to vent to each other about their hardships and how to get off the register (of course that's allowed) and a poor woman stumbled in there to ask a question about her CP hoarding pedo ex-husband and her child. Of course the responses are
>Um how do you know if he distributed CP? What if it was only a technicality because of how torrenting works? What if it was only once that he shared his collection in order to get more from someone else? And thousands of images isn't even that many, you can get those all in one sitting silly!

This thread has people arguing that victims of CP should just get over it, even though an earlier

This lovely man just didn't realize the girl in front of him wasn't 18, or 16, but twelve
years old and acts like a good man who just was too trusting and ended up regrettably hurting a child, and when the comments tell him appealing probably won't help him, he flips 180 and says she was an evil seductress who tried her luck with over 40 men, and he's also offering to send a recording of her call aroundhttps://www.reddit.com/r/SexOffenderSupport/comments/j70x6q/risking_it_all_long/

the previous posts talking about such serious shit and you coming and casually saying "maplestory private servers" makes such a funny contrast

Normalizing pedophilia and incest, nice.
This makes me think that so many problems could be solved if they just made a safe drug that simply reduces sexual urges in men.
lets not take the words of a sex offender as gospel
I mean, he's right. All moids are pedos.
>female-targeted porn is all incest based
Is this true?
Female-targeted porn are silly wattpad fanfics of popular characters/male celebrities and cheesy/cringy erotica, not "tiny young girl destroyed by daddy, left in tears".
Idk. All mainstream porn is stepcest these days, it’s not necessarily porn targeted at women. Seems out of left field, but methinks these perverts will say anything to seem less guilty lol.
No. Sadly I still watch porn sometimes, so in my experience, the most common theme is taboo, which can be anything. Faux-incest is one of the ways to portray that, but you have just as many boss/employee, random stranger, teacher/student, and so on.
Generally, even incest porn isn't about incest. It's not "mmmm I want to fuck my family". That's a simplification created by moid coombrains. It's just a lazy universally understood shortcut for "this is forbidden, we have to be secretive and sneak around, but the chemistry is great". They just use step relatives to quickly establish that frameset without needing exposition.
Once you get into the male-centric porn, though, it's less about seduction and passions and more about overt degeneracy. The male-targeted incest porn is shit like "free use society" where you can fuck your sister or your mom on the breakfast table while the rest of the family either ignores it because it's normal or spurs both of you on. That in my opinion is the major difference between porn for women and porn for men - porn for women focuses on an attraction that is pursued despite
societal boundaries, and porn for men focuses on wanting to get away with any degenerate act because
There's a huge bullying problem on Reddit and no one talks about it. So many people copy other people's posts from Reddit or other sites (e.g. Facebook) just to laugh at them. Reddit users even copy Reddit posts to other sites to laugh at them (such as the r/relationships Twitter account) with or without the user knowing. Sometimes they purposely tag the user to bully them more.
Before Reddit there were a lot more specialized small niche interest sites. While you might end up as an popular user or banned, that was it. Now thousands of people will see your posts repeatedly copied and posted on subreddits whose sole purpose is bullying (e.g. r/cringe etc).
It amazes me that Reddit is seen a mostly "neutral" site (no one would care about other people knowing they use it) but it's not all different from lolcow/pull/kiwifarms. The only difference is that those sites don't hide what they do and don't care about one random cringe post from an otherwise normal person. On Reddit these days there's even a big crossover with subreddits dedicated to bigger cows and fundie/snark subreddits, yet still lolcow etc are seen as being terrible and Reddit isn't. Why?
That's something I dislike about Reddit. It aggregates all your interests instead of having you pursue them separately in unrelated communities, making it very easy for people to learn way too much about you.
Yes, it's super easy to find the account of someone you know or for people to go through your post history and find something to bully you about.
Yeah I just end up making throwaways all the time instead of sticking to one account because of this. I don't want to post in a lighthearted sub and have that connected to posts about serious shit. It's part of why I like imageboards; I get more control over how much info I reveal in a post and don't need to worry about randos slowly building up a profile of me.
agreed. wish this board was less slow for that reason
Also Reddit is full of awful porn and lolcow etc only allow cow related nudes (but even that is stopping with revenge porn laws). The only difference I can think of is that cow dedicated sites sometimes allow doxing but Reddit doesn't. However, once a dox is known, Reddit will happily use it.
Kiwifarms has reformed a few cows and has general advice for cows (e.g. get off the internet) but Reddit just laughs at them. Yet Kiwifarms is seen as the horrible bullying site and Reddit as the internet's hugbox. Reddit users pick fights with each other over the tiniest thing, but this will get you banned on cow sites for going off topic.
It's probably a coincidence, but cow sites are primarily female based, even Kiwifarms has a large female base and a female dedicated section. Apart from lolcow recently, they're also anti-trans. Reddit is mostly male and full of gender woo, though probably their cow sections are mostly women too. But I wonder if Reddit overall being male dominated is part of what legitimatizes it, despite all the bullying? Things that are primarily female are always demonized just for existing.
I barely listen to the actual pod anymore but r/redscarepod is my go to place just to chill
I also love r/nonpoliticaltwitter no politics just vibes is rare in this day and age
just looked at r/nonpoliticaltwitter and it seems pretty comfy, thanks. I always hated how twitter was full of politics this and "support this cause or you're trash" that. nice to just chill with a variety of whimsical thoughts, independent from political spergery
something i noticed about reddit is if a comment gets a couple downvotes in the beginning of a posts creation, people will just start downvoting that comment no matter what because they assume that that's what the hivemind wants. i just go on r/tipofmytongue or r/whatstheword and help people when i'm bored.
I enjoy Kiwifarms but I don't actually see that many vocal female users there, due to the "no powerleveling" rule? Correct me if I'm wrong, I know the tranny threads have some GCs/TERFs but in other threads on different kinds of people it's usually mildly right wing men taking the piss. I don't personally care though, I just go there to look at funny posts, not argue politics. I moved to mostly viewing Lolcow since it's supposed to be mostly female and in an imageboard format.>>113870
I've made throwaway accounts for the sake of discussion I thought was too personal for my primary, but I ended up deleting them. Don't use Reddit for support groups unless there's nowhere else or it's just for access to private ones (and even then those suck).
i dont go on kiwifarms, what does the no powerleveling rule mean?
it means don't "reveal your powerlevel" like on dragon ball z, don't share personal information unless it's relevant to the topic. most people on kiwifarms are using a pseudonym username because it's a "problematic"/un-PC site to be associated with, so most women (including me) don't mention being women unless its relevant
I mainly just use the subs about my interests, like classical music, chess and other things like that. Besides those, I use r/penpals which can be fun to find people to write mail to eachother.
