abortions Anonymous 12757[Reply]

Hot topic, but what's your opinion of it? I don't like the fact that so many young people act like it's nothing, it's a quite serious topic with many angles to look at it from.
In my opinion abortions should be available until the 8th week, which is around the time the nervous system and brain reach a level of development where the fetus can be called "conscious".
Special circumstances should be available for rape victims.

For fuck's sake, stop browsing r9k. No woman is like this.

>That "tee hee, off to get my 3rd abortion~" mindset makes me want to be pro life purely out of spite
It's not just you, pro life movement as a whole is motivated out of spite. These folks think that having an unwanted child is a punishment for irresponsible women. In the end of the day, no one cares for what actually happens to these children, it's pretty ironic.

abortion is a human (female) right :)

In high school I knew a guy who was your typical brainwashed right winger teen (he only watched feminist get rekt compilations) and I remember i got to talk to him in the context of an english class and the subject of abortions was brought up and he said that he wished abortions were illegal because it kills too many white babies
im scared what he has become now if this was the stuff he'd say in high school

Anonymous 15812

Wow usually I see right wingers agree with abortions because non-whites are supposedly the ones who do it the most.


Daily Makeup/Skin Care Routine Anonymous 1258[Reply]

Post what you honestly wear on a daily basis (or at least the days you leave your house if you're unemployed this summer).

Which makeups brands/products do you reach for every day? Do you keep up a skin care routine even on days you skip make up? Discuss.

that insta is editing photos to make them look worse. i forget how it's done but you change one of the levels in photoshop and everyone looks cakey with huge pores. some people really don't have large pores naturally. most people do have pores like you do though

Your skin's amazing! That's what my skin looks like fresh after washing, a week after diligent skincare and masks etc.

Yes, stop caring about your appearance so much.

The shape of your face and your skin color have nothing to do with hygiene. You are just insecure. Are you showering? Brushing your teeth? Then you’re fine.

recently I got an overnight treatment (Cerave's) and I realize that after a few days of use, there's tiny whiteheads in my usual problem area (around mouth, jaw, chin) which I never get normally. Is this probably an indication that I'm breaking out from it–not purging? My skin is extremely congested and it's the first time I'm using such acids like lactic/glycolic.


Fine hair struggles Anonymous 15061[Reply]

I’m losing hope in ever being able to style my hair and it’s been this way forever. It’s not that it doesn’t grow or that I have hair loss, but the actual strands themselves are thin. So it ends up feeling like I have barely any hair to work with. If I pull it back there might as well be nothing there. Is there any hope for something I can do to change this or do I just resign to wigs and extensions?

I use castor oil sometimes but I guess it can’t do anything to change the actual density of my hair. I’m thinking I might just need to find some good quality extensions at this point since I’m getting tired of wearing hats all the time

Anonymous 15068

make sure they're clip ins and not glued on since hair glue can cause bald spots over time which would be super noticeable with already thin hair

Anonymous 15739

I have the same issue, my hairs are just naturally thin and extremely frizzy with no rhyme or reason for the frizz. I tried different products including switching up my shampoo and conditioner, hair masks, henna dyeing, simple treatments for frizz, nothing that required an actual stylist though. The only thing that somewhat helped was dyeing my hair a natural color, mainly because the dye I buy coats the outside of the hair shaft and makes it thicker looking. Once the roots grow out it makes my hair start breaking where the dyed part meets the undyed part and I have to dye it much more often than I should to prevent that. I'm pretty much resigned to the fact that my hair is a mess and I've worn natural looking wigs in the past and will probably start wearing them again. I recommend trying out various products and going to a hairstylist for a trim and wash specifically to ask the stylist what she recommends for thin hair. Sometimes they can figure out your holy grail product that can help, though it will be more on the expensive side. If you do go with wigs, get a somewhat pricier one that already has a style that you like to make it easier for yourself. If you take care of it the wig will last a while and make it worth the extra money. Definitely look up how to take care of wigs and lurk in cosplay communities. Also don't let self conscious beat you, plenty of women wear wigs and after wearing one for a while you will start noticing more and more women and even the occasional moid wearing wigs. As long as your wig isn't extremely cheap, flashy, or an obnoxious and obvious color, lots of people won't even notice. Sorry for the long post!

I have fine hair too and I just have a shorter hairstyle like a bob that can be sort of styled in different ways but it definitely isn't gonna get you a lot of crazy options. But it looks good so maybe you can try something smaller like that?

Anonymous 15750

Same here. It really helps to always use a volumizer shampoo, if I use a regular shampoo it just looks worse. I'm annoyed I can't wear most types of hair clips, ties, or pins, they easily fall out. Have you had your thyroid level tested? I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism several years ago and thin hair was one of my symptoms leading up to that. I've been on a medication since and my hair has noticeably thickened up over time but yeah it's still unusually fine, compared to the average girl. I think some of us just unfortunately got stuck with bad genes or something. And yeah like the other poster said, going with a shorter hairstyle can be a good idea, I don't let mine grow out too long myself.

I never smile because I have no reason to. I don't have wrinkles but I look ugly regardless.

You will get wrinkles no matter what. Laugh lines make older people look more approachable and nice. Don't sweat it, you will only drive yourself mad like that

Has anyone here tried an animal-based (not fully carnivore) diet?

If so, how did you feel? Did you see any positive changes to your health?

Anonymous 15746

I did keto for a few months a year ago. The first couple of days are hellish as you go through keto flu, but once you get into the swing of it and figure out what you can and can't eat, it's alright.

I can't say there were any huge changes to my health or anything like that, but I was doing it in combination with a slight calorie restriction, so I guess there's that to factor in. Two big changes I can remember are that my acne cleared up a lot, and my taste palette changed a lot (while I was still on keto) so that I was finding dark chocolate surprisingly sweet. I think it had to do with reducing the amount of artificial sugars in my diet generally. I stopped after a couple of months though - I missed fruit way too much, and I was doing very strict keto so I had literally no leeway.

Does anyone else feel alienated by the way people talk about puberty? Maybe it's because I was a fat, loserly child so I had bigger concerns (no pun intended), or maybe it's because my family was chill and accepting. Either way, I have zero emotions positive nor negative towards puberty and it makes me feel alone.

Anonymous 15722

I barely noticed puberty happened tbh

Anonymous 15724

puberty barely happened to me so yeah. also makes me feel awkward when topic of bras/boobiez comes up, i forget that normally women my age have them

Anonymous 15732

Yeah I never got why it was such a big fucking deal. Most of it was pretty neutral. Even when I got my period, I hear some girls have this mini "celebration" for becoming a woman or some shit, well when my period came I knew what it was, my grandma told me, so I just got a pad and didn't give a shit as my first few periods had none of the pain or PMS I get nowadays.
I mean periods being some gateway into womanhood is honestly pedophile moid logic ("if she bleeds she's ready to breed.")
Most other changes I literally ignored and garnered an unenthusiastic "oh", or if they did leave a blip on my radar it was really nothing. It wasn't a rollarcoaster ride of embarassment and hormones like some people describe.

Anonymous 15737

It made me feel sad. I wanted to be a child forever.

Anonymous 15744


I also began pretty early, partly due to being overweight. I started menstruating at 9. I'm sure some people have valid fears around puberty especially if they had no education or warning about it. The big issue with adolescence isn't adolescence itself, but the adults in your life and the kids around you. My mom and grandmother didn't get that I couldn't use tampons at 10, I still can't as an adult. The issue wasn't I was scared or hated my period, I hated tampons and the adults being reluctant to give me my pads. Breasts and wearing bras was easy, but kids at school do not make that process easy with their insults and eyes.

OP is right, puberty is just a process everybody goes through, there's nothing inherently bad about it or great. It's normal and healthy, it's just how the people in our life react that make the idea of it traumatic.

>chest pain
>exercise context
>passed out
Sounds cardiac, if it has been getting worse/more frequent and your test showed coronary disease then probably unstable angina. Don't give up and go to the doctor again (another one). Get a stress ECG and 24h Holter if possible. I'd also ask for an echocardiography with Doppler to check on your valves. Some doctors are dicks and crooks, but you don't want to miss an important diagnosis. Valve stuff and arrhythmias can kill.
>I remember the hospital nurse giving me a stern warning not to let anyone stick ANYTHING into my wrist
Ignore anything nurses tell you, the super dumb ones have a tendency to tell patients the stupidest shit for some rason. You wouldn't believe the amount of scientifically inaccurate and downright mindblowingly stupid stuff I have heard nurses say to patients. If you really had an important coronary blockage you would need to have a revascularization, and it wouldn't be a nurse deciding that or taking responsibiliy for that decision either.

this pain will be four years old soon. going in for a lipid panel + cbc on monday, hopefully things are brought to light.

jesus anon, i hope you feel better. dont be afraid to see other cardiologists if the one you have is untrustworthy

Anonymous 15694

okay so the doctor i saw was amazing. she was very kind and heard me out, and didn't deny my request for a blood test. the meds she gave me are helping a bit, and she assigned a few more based on my blood work (i have pretty high cholesterol) so yeah. she also recommended i see a gastrowhatever doctor. feels good to have a path to follow to getting better.

Anonymous 15738

Come on, nona, after 4 years, you must tell us what happened. What were the meds she prescribed? Since she said you should see a gastro, she is thinking you have gastroesophageal reflux?

I don't buy it often, but I love this brand. The scent doesn't dissipate as quickly as most Body washes do for me.

Sorry to reply twice but I want to thank you again, anon. All my work blouses are the absolute cheapest I could find. I invested in a few nicef shirt and the difference in smell is apparent before I even start working. Somehow the cheap synthetic shirts get stinky from my commute? But the nicer shirts don't smell at all, even at the end of the day.

I feel way more confident wearing perfume now!

Anonymous 15373

synthetic materials aren't breathable so it's like wearing a plastic bag and then the sweat can't evaporate so bacteria build up and then you can't even wash it out properly

i'll never understand why they make sports clothes out of synthetics

Anonymous 15398

Does the fact that everything is scented drive anyone else insane? I like the smell of my shampoo and conditioner and it doesn't linger in my hair. but I bought a pomade for my hair and it's like i can constantly smell it clashing with my perfume and it drives me ape shit.
I try to buy everything unscented when I can. It's really difficult as far as hair products go though.

Anonymous 15733


I smelled a moid wearing what I think is Neroli Portofino today, really nice smell. Any other scents moids wear that you lot like ? Sauvage is of course the most used, Eros is way to sweet and also there is the whole Greek chav subculture that has took hold of the scent for their own so it has been ruined for me even more.
Also ,from tom ford, my favorite that I wear is Soleil Neige


Alternatives to grain /rice carbohydrates (that don't taste BAD) Anonymous 15686[Reply]

Ok I've been trying to do keto for a while. I tried some soybean pasta/ edamame pasta into carbonara but the bean taste overpowered the whole dish. Is the yellow Pea pasta any better?

I need an alternative for rice too…

I don't know how to live without these staples but I gotta find something that works. Carbs make me tired.

I've looked into chickpea pasta and been informed its high in carbs

OP baby you can't eat legumes on keto. There are loads more carbs than just wheat and white sugar. I would advice you to read a bit more about keto and food groups, maybe some videos on youtube? Pinterest is also a good recipe/meal inspo site to use. I also found this article after a quick googling https://www.ditchthecarbs.com/easy-low-carb-swaps/

There is also many keto/low carb processed foods nowadays in grocery stores depending on your location, like shirataki noodles that are basically zero calorie.
