Gothic/Alternative Thread Anonymous 5731[Reply]

It says that general fashion is permitted here, so how about a gothic/alternative fashion thread? Western, not gothic lolita.

Gothic rock started in the UK in the 1980s and is an offshoot of post-punk. The subculture that was based on the music survived through the decade and to this very day still has many "followers". Many fashion styles have been connected to goth, and they will be discussed here.

A list of some goth bands (NOTE: There are way more bands than I listed. I just posted the more popular ones):
Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cure, Alien Sex Fiend, Christian Death, 45 Grave
Black Tape For A Blue Girl, Love Spirals Downwards, etc.

Such styles include 1980s goth, deathrock, victorian, cybergoth, etc.

that's so… Cool? Disgusting? Both I guess. In my opinion these skeleton tops/bottoms look odd if you only have either the top or bottom on but not both, if you know what I mean. It's like you're only half skeleton.

I saw a cute goth girl and a cute goth boy strolling around a few days ago and now I have an immense desire to be just like them. But at the same time I don't want to waste money on clothes right now.
So… does anyone have any goth diy ideas? I can only think of embroidering something…

Anonymous 5746

what kind of goth are you talking about?
i really like finding normie stuff at thrift stores and then dying/distressing it to make it look spooky. you can do a lot with a tub of black RIT dye and/or some bleach. you could also try making some headdresses/hair accessories. i made a pair of horns at one point that i just carved out of foam from the dollar store and then sealed with mod podge and painted.

Brother told me I probably couldn’t have children, being an asshole again. Does anyone have advice for how to combat these pricks that comment on appearance and whether or not I can have kids? I’m thinking maybe throwing tampon at him would be the ultimate fuck you to that comment

Anonymous 15605

id say to tell him no woman will ever fuck him, but he's a man so he will probably beat you.
try the tampon thing but he could masturbate to it.
theres no winning with moids, make him seethe silently by becoming the best version of yourself inside and out. that will be a blow to his (already clearly damaged) ego

Anonymous 15606

also i wanted to add moids image of women and bodies is skewed because of all the plastic porn they watch since 12 and their own mental illness, you more than likely look just fine and cute anonette

What's your BMI? If it's outside the Normal range your fertility actually would be negatively affected in a serious way.

Anonymous 15609

seconding this, though correlation between making a man cum and BMI is inverse, so I think the brother might be right if she has a high BMI.

Anyone else feel absolutely miserable after shaving? As soon as I dry off after getting out of the shower, the itches from all those tiny cuts set my body on fire and get so painful that I end up nauseous and lightheaded for the next few hours. Does anyone know what I mean? Anyone know what to do to ease the pain?

I used to get that before I switched to a safety razor. Don't use some shitty drugstore shaving cream, use a nice one or shaving oil. I hear there are guides on yt for shaving razor techniques.

Anonymous 15548

Well the obvious solution is; don't shave but not everyone's comfortable with that. I too would rather not shave but end up doing it anyway because I don't want to deal with "ew nasty" or "why don't you shave??" comments.

What do you use to shave with? I find that a safety razor gets cleaner cuts with less irritation and it's cheaper too. Alternatively, how about using a delipatory cream? It works by weakening the keratin in your hair after which you can simply wipe off the hair after a few minutes. It doesn't create tiny cuts.

Anonymous 15563

try using nair it smells like shit but works & no razors needed. whatever u do always always always use lotion right after. im not pro shaving myself but my parents always forced it on me so i get it

Anonymous 15567

I use different types of conditioner. Also, is depilatory cream permanant?

Anonymous 15590

nair is not at all permanent, its basically chemical shaving. if you want something that lasts a bit longer, get an cheap epilator to try. epilating is nice because it after the first few times it grows back slower and finer so you dont notice as much.


Water fasting Anonymous 15402[Reply]

Would it kill me to go on a water fast on my period? I don't have anything to do for the next two weeks and I wanna lose weight so I'm thinking of fasting for 10 days or maybe longer if I can stand it. The longest I've gone without food was 9 days but that was a couple years ago

Does anyone have any experience with fasting?

It looks silly because you misread it or maybe don't understand how weight loss works. She will not lose a lot of weight by fasting for 10 days. She may lose a lot of weight by limiting calories for a longer period of time.
>Eating "light" through the day basically conditions someone to feel hungry through the entire day.
There is very little scientific validity for this, or for "intermittent fasting" as a whole. Weight loss boils down to CICO, there's nothing else to it. You can achieve it by fasting, but it is not sustainable. Not sustainable = you'll gain your weight back. Why do something that has an 100% chance of failure? It's simply irrational.

Exactly, there's nothing complicated about it.

Anonymous 15571

What, so ghrelin levels and how it changes depending on a person's eating pattern is a myth?

Anonymous 15573

Also, you misread me too. I said mild caloric restriction was fine and good. I wasn't disagreeing with CICO as a whole.

In the past I fasted for maybe 1-2 days at a time ever 2 weeks and cut my calorie intake by 200 calories and lost calories extremely quickly. What helped me was not getting used to snacking all the time and eating the right foods instead of blindly doing "CICO".
Someone can post evidence proving that small meals are best for a person bc I'd be interested.

Oh cool!! I just started BJJ! What belt level did you get to? I tried finding women's-only gyms but couldn't find any (fine with me as long as there are other women in the class).

Anonymous 15544

isn't it possible for womento beat guys at bjj? i tought the whole point of the martial art was that you can use leverage and technique to make up for a lack of strenght
like this girls

Anonymous 15547

Yes, I've read BJJ is good for women because it isn't heavily strength-based. Didn't stop men on the internet from telling me to quit because they "still could rape me" even if I knew BJJ. Well fuck them, I'm gonna keep training.

Its pure cope, its better to have technique than not. Period.

Don't want to reignite the argument, but I came across this video and it is a perfect example of the sexualization of female athletes that was mentioned before. Notice the gross comments from men, along the lines of "forget her jump, give her a medal for her ass".
The fact that women have to compete in these garments is outrageous in itself. For comparison, men usually compete in pic related (they can sometimes wear shorter shorts, but never panty-like form-fitting bottoms).

If you have a lot of muscle but it isn’t visible, then you just need to lose some fat.

What is your band size for your bra? Usually that’s a good indicator of what your waist circumference can at maximum reach at your lowest weight. Honestly for an apple shape any sort of weight on you will not look good. You should definitely aim for the lower end around bmi of 16-18. Either that or consider lipo-ing your midsection if you want to stay at a higher weight. Women with your waist circumference are at a much higher risk of dying from heart disease though, so maybe consider decreasing a lot more bodyfat.

32 inches at the tightest.
stronger mostly; I focus on my lower body.
