Unpopular opinions Anonymous 551[Reply]

Let's have a thread for unpopular beauty trends or features that you like, or 'unattractive' people you think are beautiful.

I for one think tall women are super hot and I'd love a strong femme amazonian gf.

You will be surprise. There are a lot of guys that I know that have an "amazon" fetish. I wouldn't call them handsome (baby face, high-pitch voice, really young looking for their age), but they do exist

Don't expect imageboard people to be familiar with basic findings of human population genetics. They're too busy reading 19th century racial anthropology

That's fine, I also generally don't like sandals (currently do not own any), but something about the perception of comfort makes me want them.

I really like long pointy noses, and if someone has a nose like that they are 5 times prettier to me. You know how they say "I could just lose myself in your eyes", I could probably lose myself in a pretty nose lol
But ironically I have a pointy nose too and it clashes with the rest of my childish face…

went to the hairdresser to trim bangs and the stylist decided to get creative. i look like a freaking unamused poodle.

oh I remember her from various bogie films. She was a top of the line actress. It is good to see young people have not forgotten her and draw inspiration from her.

IDK what you anons are talking about it's oddly enjoyable to look at, the white discharge is kind of like gelatin balls to play with. Enjoy the little break time in the restroom to play with your own slime.

the pain is immeas…

anyone else get SUPER bad period cramps? like, i'm used to pain (i used to get beat up pretty often in middle school, and now i swim so i'm used to muscle pain), but a few times my cramps have been bad enough to make me pass out :(( and i bleed like crazy too.

inb4 "birth control" meme: my mom won't let me take it. she says it'll make my acne worse and turn me into a whore. not sure how they can exist simultaneously but she's the one with the money so i have to just live with the feeling of getting shot in the stomach monthly lolololol

Anonymous 4486

TL;DR: I've been there and I'm so sorry you're going through this. Make it a priority to take care of yourself.

Long version (sorry I went full advice-auntie mode, but I'm posting anyway for all young period-chans out there):
I started having cramps at age 10. Every month I'd throw up from pain, was doubled over, couldn't see straight, you know the drill. I also had a ton of bleeding. In HS I saw a gyno, and they told me "this might go away after puberty or it might not; if not, get checked for endometriosis." So I got diagnosed w/ endo in my early 20s. BC helped the bleeding but not the cramps. I also had PMDD and everything I tried either didn't work, stopped working, or made other issues worse. When I came to the end of the road for other viable treatments I decided to have a complete hysterectomy. One of the best things I ever did.

So here's some advice. My apologies if you already know all this stuff/have tried it, or if it doesn't apply to you.

Plan to get on your own health insurance as soon as you can, find a Planned Parenthood, whatever you gotta do so your mom isn't part of your medical decisions anymore. Until then, get her to take you to a gynecologist if she hasn't already. Maybe an MD can convince her to let you try BC.

The cramps and bleeding may lighten up by themselves once you hit your early 20s. Or not. There's no way to know.

If you're missing school from cramps every month, try to get a diagnosis in writing, excuse notes, anything you can get from an MD. Keep copies of everything. Even if you're only missing a day a month, that can snowball on your attendance record very quickly esp. if you have other issues that also make you miss days. If you can prove absence was due to a medical condition, it can help you prevent the school from fucking you over. One semester I missed so many days, my doctor had to write a letter to the fucking school board because they wouldn't give me credit for my classes even though I had straight A's. Whatever it takes. If you are still having disabling cramps when you get out in the workforce, that paper trail could save your job. Don't let men and judgy, cramp-less women screw you out of anything just because "oh it's just cramps, it can't possibly be that bad." Fuck them, protect your rights.

I don't really think there should be a controversy, if a girl wants to wear it cool if she doesn't it's also fucking cool.

Personally i'm a make up noob but I get impressed as hell how some ladies can pull off killer looks with it.

What are your preferences for personal grooming?
How has it changed, or does it vary seasonally?

What does your routine consist of?

(I know there's a pubes thread, a few head hair threads, but I haven't seen anything about this yet)

Make it part of your regular routine?
Just do it in the shower or post-shower when the hair is softened.

Depending on how soon your hair grows back, do it once a week or something, and adjust when to how often you want to maintain?

Does anyone have experience with electric razors? I don't have a lot of hair but it seems less irritating than safety or disposable razors.

Anonymous 4170

>>4168 meeee~! I have one that has changeable heads so there’s an epilator which I only use if I’m brave enough, and a shaver, and a thingy to put over the shaver for the bikini line or whatever! I find it less irritating, even not at all irritating! But it’s one I use in the bath AND I still exfoliate beforehand. I don’t shave as much as I’d like to but I recommend electric ones you can take in the bath (obv rechargeable style for safety)

I am pretty hairy and have dark hair, it is so annoying.

I use sugaring for my armpits. Used to shave them but sugaring is better for my skin. Their are so smooth after it.

For my face hair, the sugaring is to weak. I have a mustache and black and white bristles on my chin. My eyebrow hair is thick and long (like pupes) but i have not many of them. So i have to be really careful what to remove, because i can create holes or stuff like that. I also cut them with scissors so they look at least more groomed.
So there tweezers it is.

I kind of have given up for my legs. No matter what i always get ingrown hair. (yes i tried many things before and after the shaving/waxing so the hair doesn't grow in. It does not help)
So i kind of let them grow and wear only long trousers.

I don't do much in the southern region just sometimes a little trim.

Anonymous 4453

I want to try downstairs waxing but I keep putting it off since I tend to be more of a DIYer than someone to pay for specific beauty or grooming services.


Twerking for Sport Anonymous 4406[Reply]

Is it all just a meme?
I get that twerking is probably good cardio like any form of dancing, but does it really do anything as far as toning the booty is concerned?

Anonymous 4407

I guess depends how hard you do it?

Anonymous 4409

It obviously depends on how much you do and what sort of moves. But it can easily be a cardio and flexibility work out as well as give you a handy skill.

Can't make it your only workout because dancing (except at an advanced - professional level) rarely burns enough calories to supplant a gym workout, but it's still good.


Anonymous 4411

I guess it's as good cardio as any other dancing, except DDR.

Anonymous 4421

No, muscles need added resistance in order to break down, and then grow more in mass. Unless you're doing squats, twerking does nothing for it.

>tall and skinny with a good jawline is considered the absolute peak of female beauty by women and people immersed in aesthetics
>meanwhile most men like plastic midgets with fake asses and fuckhuge titties and recessed jaws
Explain this. How did this shift take place? Hardcore shilling by the media to push the Kardashians? Or did they take off because men like that crap?
Butthurt womanlets don't get too upset pls.

Tall, skinny women with strong jawlines are more masculine so it's normal that women prefer them. They're sharp/bony and it's considered masculine, while curvy women are more well, round and it's considered feminine.
Btw, I'm one of the tall skinny women and yeah I have the same reaction as you, op

possibly it's just that most men dont fancy their chances with women who are taller than them.

males are interested in highly feminine traits in women and the traits you mentioned are feminine.

Hormone Balancers Anonymous 4432[Reply]

My hormones have been screwed up ever since I hit puberty and a few family members told me it isn't normal to have chin hairs since I'm still a teenager. I want to get some pills that will balance my hormones or at least get rid of my facial hair, but I can't find the right ones because they all seem like they are scams. Has anyone else had this problem or should I get whatever looks most legit?

Anonymous 4441

I haven't had this problem, but if its an issue with your hormones then you should see a doctor before taking a "supplement" as most of the time they ARE scams and are full of unhealthy things. Maybe a doctor can prescribe you something! You also might just have a condition that means you'll be growing hair on your face, so if that IS the case, maybe look into facial shavers! not like.. ones for people with beard but the other kind!
Plus you may not know exactly what kind of hormone is the issue, and if you take the wrong kind it could make it worse, and not better!
Over all, just go to a doctor! ^^
