Is pic related even alt anymore? It looks borderline mainstream to me, besides the thigh highs maybe.

Anonymous 13345

Teens growing up with social media and phones in their hands have made so many niche things mainstream. You'll still see more girls in mall clothing than anything else, but very few styles are truly "alt" anymore.

Anonymous 13351

It's tiktok's influence. It can be goth/alt/punk/metal if you want it to, labels and definitions don't matter anymore.

I want to get some tattoos and piercings (mostly piercings) but I'm afraid I'll regret it and my family will bully me.

Is it normal to regret it? Because I'm really conflicted. I really want it but have no idea how to take care of tattoos and piercings.

Does anyone have any experience on this?

Tattoos are kinda cringe, consider what you think looks cool now when you're 20-39 will look pretty weird when you are 50 and older. Piercings not so much, especially on ears where you can p much stop wearing them and your body will heal, but as I'm sure you are well aware of, tattoos are permanent, and some of them sort of fade and look like blurry messes after a few years.

I would never get one, personally. But if it means something serious to you or you want to honor someone with it, do as you see fit?

Anonymous 12967

I mostly just want piercings. I had my ears pierced when i was 12 but took the earrings off 3 years later, because they looked cringe considering my HUGE earlobes.

Anonymous 12969

I've never really heard of anyone regretting piercings. You can let them seal up if you don't want them anymore, afterall. From what I've heard about tattoos, a lot of people regret them, but not enough to want them removed.

Having tattoos removed is very expensive, at least in some countries.

Anonymous 13290

be careful about piercings, as well. some mouth piercings can really damage your teeth. tbh a lot of tattoos are cringe. personally i like how they look, and if i did get one, it would be something abstract or decorative, no figures or anything

i finally bit the bullet that i am in fact never gonna look like an anime character and curled my straight bangs to the sides curtain bangs style, I am finally letting my bangs grow and keeping on the sides.
it looks more mature and fits my face better + i havent dealt with greasy bangs ever since i made the decision last week.
given a lot of miners are weebs and probably have straight bangs i highly reccomened trying curling them to the sides and seeing if it looks better.

Is a hime cut associated with being a weeb? I'm not that into anime and I've had one for years because I thought it suited me… It's a lot better now, but when I first got the cut years ago, I felt like my face looked bulbously round and that's what drew me to the style. It works really well because the bangs minimize my forehead, the side locks sharpen my face, and I still get to have long hair that I can put in ponytails/buns/braids/etc.

Anonymous 13250

Hime cut is solely a weeb thing. Sorry, anon.

Anonymous 13253


Do you really have a hime cut or something that looks closer to the second picture?

Anonymous 13254

Himecut is 100% a weeb thing.
My cheeks look better with my hair pulled back, so himecut actively working against me. Still look better with my forehead covered.

Anonymous 13255


Oops. I'll admit I've seen more anime than the average normie, but mostly stuff like Pokemon, Ghibli films, and misc stuff that friends wanted to watch, so I wouldn't call myself a true enthusiast. I do like jfashion though
I used to have it just like the left one but I didn't cut the side pieces again after they grew out, so they are now closer to the right one but not identical. Found this similar image where the side pieces are distinct but not completely blunt, and there is a small curve.
My bangs are straight and solid like the left but slightly curved to the side
To be completely honest I keep hearing people refer to anything with straight bangs + side locks + long back as "hime cut" and I'm not super sure how blunt it needs to be to qualify anymore


Getting into sports as an adult? Anonymous 13073[Reply]

Has anyone here gotten into a sport as an adult? How did it go?

I have 0 sports experience, never played sports as a kid, and the idea of joining a team/group/class sounds daunting.

Anonymous 13107

I would recommend weightlifting.
It's not as easy as most sports(get a trainer in the beginning) but generally if you have no experience in sports you don't have muscle to get into them.
And you won't really enjoy them if you are the worst.

Anonymous 13111

Weightlifting scares me because it’s male-dominated and I always here about people being judged for the way they do it.

Find a women's gym and see if they offer any free consultations. Lots of gyms will give you a week long free pass.

I want to do tennis but I'm waiting for the weather to get cooler. I am pretty sensitive to heat and all that. People scare me but I could just play tennis against myself by hitting the ball against the wall, that would be good enough.

Anonymous 13226

I never really did sports growing up, partially because I was like 'im a female and will never be the best, what's the point?' and put that time into academics instead. I've started weightlifting now like >>13107 suggested, and it's amazing. I've been at it for like 4 years, and I deadlift 235, squat 195, bench 100 lbs all for for sets of 5. You don't have to get that into it though. Weightlifting is good because it helps you build base strength and coordination so other athletic activities don't seem so insurmountable.

I just started a 'love to learn' tennis class for adults this past week! It's so hard, but I'm getting better. The ball always goes way farter than I intended. I have been practicing with a wall on days when I don't have the class. You can get a pretty good racket for like $100, I got the head ti.s6 or smth at dicks. There are cheaper ones too.

To add on to this, because I'm leaving out some stuff – from ordering tests on me (he had me wear a heart monitor and I just never got the results from that back) to sending his obviously untrained intern nurses to tell me shit, it just left a bad stain on my memory and made me sort of distrustful of doctors. I've been busy with school and stuff too.

I'm also reliant on medicaid so the number of doctors I can see is small.

All that being said, this semester wraps up soon, and I'm DEFINITELY gonna seek out doctors that don't suck cock to fix me. I'm tired of dealing with this pain, it's scary.

three year anniversary to this nonsense. still busy with uni but i'll try to see a doctor after midterms are over.

Anonymous 13132

Been a long time for that chronic pain. Has it gotten any better? Is it getting worse? Does it fluctuate?
It’s sounding heart related, these are almost classic heart attack symptoms. But assuming no heart damage, it’s either your blood or your lungs. If not them, it’s your nervous system. A good doctor (WHICH I AM NOT PLEASE DO NOT THINK I AM A DOCTOR) would go through the list and attempt treatments for each.
There are a few theories I have. I AM NOT A DOCTOR:
1) pain is chronic and staying roughly the same
- possibly late-developing cystic fibrosis, maybe even a mild version. Can confirm with genetic testing. If your skin tastes salty, and you are coughing up mucus, that is a pretty good sign
- possibly an autoimmune disease presenting with anemia. Low blood counts would give similar sensations to decreased oxygenation of the blood. Autoimmune diseases can present anywhere from birth into your 30s, they can also present when the body is subjected to an infection or a shock (exercise after years of being sedentary).
- hormonal disorder. Your brain is not sending out correct chemicals to direct your body to give your blood enough oxygen or make enough blood.
2)fluctuating pain
- look at allergies. Can drop your blood count and oxygenation and vary daily based on environmental factors you can’t control. Allergies develop in the late teenage years for a lot of people.
3) worsening pain
- cancer is my first bet, can be detected with a CT scan if symptoms have been worsening for a long time. Could also be bone marrow cancer (multiple myeloma) which would not be detected on a CT unless it was very advanced. Would need a biopsy.

I have ideas for treatment but I am in no way shape or form a medical professional, so please don’t listen to me. I don’t want to tell you what medicines to take but talk to a doctor about Prednisone for suspect autoimmune disorder and anti-depressant for possible neurological disorder. Prednisone can fuck you up, but it can also be incredible. It may cause heart problems so please only take it under the direction of a doctor WHICH I AM NOT. BECAUSE IF YOU TAKE IT AND DIE I WILL FEEL REALLY BAD ABOUT IT IF AN ACTUAL DOCTOR DIDNT TALK TO YOU ABOUT IT.

>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.


Can we overweight women get hot? Anonymous 8761[Reply]

I'm 25 and look like this. On Hinge I'm not able to get hits on guys who have it going on, just losers. I know I'm overweight and this could be the problem. Is it possible for someone like me to become thin and attractive again? How much work am I looking at, how long, etc…?

Hair is greasy and you can tell she has high blood pressure from her face which is obviously filtered. Breasts are saggy and pancake shaped which is seen as unattractive and usually is a sign of low collagen, low health and considered unattractive. She has nice eyes but who even knows nowadays with how many girls basically refuse to post a single picture that hasn't been edited to hell and back

Anonymous 13096


She sure as HELL does not look like that in person. The fake freckles she put on her nose are also weird looking. You can already tell her chest is going to look like this in a couple years because she doesn’t use sun protection. This woman visibly doesn’t take care of herself. Fat people are straight up incapable of being attractive unless its to fetishists.

Anonymous 13097

NTA but you sound nitpicky as hell, and her hair is NOT greasy, it looks like it has a moisturizer in it. You can tell the difference by looking at whether the hair is clumping together at the ends (like hers) or at the roots. Roots = unwashed grease, ends = product. And her picture doesn't look very edited, it just looks like a cell phone picture with a filter on it.

How to not be fat 101

Make sure you understand different nutrition vocabulary:
- Carbohydrate: Refers to all 'sugar containing molecules' like Fiber, Starches, Glucose, Fructose, Sucrose, etc.
- Sugar: Added sugar (that white granular stuff) also known as monosaccharides and disaccharides. Common examples are Glucose, Fructose, and Sucrose
- Fiber: Mostly indigestible sugar structures, makes you feel physically "Full" but not satisfied long term.
- Starch: Chain of sugar molecules, also called polysaccharides. The body will break it apart into monosaccharides as needed.

- Unsaturated Fat: Fat from plants, very healthy. Liquid at room temperature.
- Saturated Fat: Fat from animals, unhealthy in large quantities due to increasing cholesterol.
- Trans Fat: Cancer causing human made fat. Avoid eating it at all costs. trans fats btfo

- Protein: Collectively referring to the amount of amino acids in food. There are a bunch of different types of amino acid that humans use and not all food has all the amino acids in its protein.

You will not go into starvation mode, don't listen to this poster.
Eat 1000 calories a day if you want to lose very quickly, 1200 if you want to lose moderately. Since you're already very overweight, the pounds will come off quickly at first, and then you may plateau. But do not give up or think you are not making progress, just keep at the caloric deficit and you will get to your ideal weight.

Anonymous 13014

You gotta find what works best for you. I lost 17 kilos in the last year by eating around 1500 calories a day (not strictly measured, it's ok to eat out with friends sometimes or go over the limit, as long as you don't say "fuck it" and start eating everything in sight) and lifting weights 4-5 times a week. A moderate caloric deficit means you won't be hungry all the time (esp. if you fill up on veggies) and working out gives you control over how your weight distributes itself. It's also a good way to avoid sagging skin from losing weight too fast.

Anonymous 13019

Yes, but certain eating habits can decrease the bioavailability of the calories you take in.

Might be a blessing in disguise if you have a bf who's into that stuff.

Anyway I use a little baby powder before I put on my socks and leave, and then if I come home from uni to lunch and I still have classes I put a little more of the talc under my socks. Then when I get home I usually shower and make sure I'm clean.

Have a similar problem, just bought a foot cream from a pharmacy and no longer have that problem. Not a bad idea to wash them after getting back from work regardless.

Anonymous 13024

Wear fresh cotton socks everyday.
Are your shoes staying damp overnight? If so put a dry teabag in each of your shoes, this will help absorb any moisture (and odour).
Go to the pharmacy and ask about athletes foot spray or anti fungal cream just in case.
Wash feet after coming home from work and after exercising.
Good luck nona.
