Conspiracy theories Anonymous 386
Which ones do you believe in?
Did you get inspiration from my post? lol tysm for the thread, I hope it grows. I love reading people's thoughts on the topic.
God, i wish I would believe in reptillians and things like that, it'd make my life a lot more fun.
I don't exactly believe in "the Illuminati", but I don't doubt powerful families all around the world are linked and still controlling the world. Tbh when you stop to think and pay attention to the eye thing it really is everywhere. It's most likely just a coincidence, but still, it's something to observe.
I agree with you about powerful families, but not about reptilians so much.
There's clear evidence for the powerful families theory, but it's more like that it's companies that are powerful, and men get around the monopoly laws by owning one big company but sitting on the board of a bunch of others, or stacking the board with relatives: just sitting on the board isn't ownership, but it does allow them control. Like the reason you won't see Apple products for sale at Costco is because Bill Gates' dad is on the board of directors. That's control but not ownership, so monopoly laws aren't applicable, which sucks.
It's like that with other companies too. A lot of Putin's friends own or are on the board of directors for several large companies. Putin's bff even supposedly co-owns a sports team with Beyonce and her husband.
The only upside is that control is slowly sliding into the hands of Silicon Valley. Emotionally and personality-wise the computer literate hipster crowd is more likely to not get along and get into a slap-fight over a Trilby, meaning less uniform control of the populace as power-couples crumble.
Conspiracy theories are so interesting. I love hearing about them, especially if it's weird stuff.
However I dislike how the term conspiracy theory is used to discredit people sometimes. Something that used to be called a conspiracy theory is that companies and government organizations collect as much data as possible about everyone.
I also believe that powerful groups have a lot of control over things like the other anons mentioned. >>387>Tbh when you stop to think and pay attention to the eye thing it really is everywhere. It's most likely just a coincidence, but still, it's something to observe.
If I was a celebrity I would make some hidden references from time to time just to mess with people. I wonder if some of them do that.
The only one I really, truly believe in is Apollo 11 and Apollo 12 were fake.
Putting ice in drinks was invented by greedy corporates/da j00s as a way for businesses to be cheap and serve less beverage for the same amount of money. And yes I order all of my drinks with no ice I want to drink my raspberry coke not my raspberry coke diluted with slightly cooler water damn it.
Matrix glitch theory. I know its a movie, but sometimes I experience things and think it has to NOT be a coincidence.
Also, I don't know if lucid dreaming is still a "conspiracy" but I do think people can control realms in their sleep despite people disproving this as a legitimate skill.
>>403>despite people disproving this as a legitimate skill.
Since when has lucid dreaming been refuted? I've seen that a lot of studies back it up as a real phenomenon. That being said, I've gotten sporadic lucid dreams every few months or so since childhood, and for the past year I've built on that skill a bit. There's nothing really mysterious about it, a lot of people will experience it at least once in their lifetime.
Freemasons did the french revolution
So true. I always ask for two cups, one for my beverage and one filled with ice so I can add it with I want to.
A guy I work with believes that the moon is an ancient watch tower left behind by aliens. He says that the Egyptian pyramids as well as the pyramids in South America were some sort of weapon that was used to damage said watch tower, giving the moon the appearance it has today. There are entire YouTube channels dedicated to this nonsense.
Throughout my entire childhood, my favourite was that Area 51 houses some secret alien technology after a UFO crash in Roswell. Even to this day, I still want to visit Roswell one day like some kind of pilgrimage and get the whole dorky, touristy experience by talking to bar owners about UFO sightings lol.
I believe pretty strongly that Kurt Cobain was killed by an assassin hired by Courtney Love and his death was framed as a suicide. https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Kurt_Cobain_murder_conspiracy_theories
This conspiracy was pretty wide-spread at the time
I believe that there is a group of people that methodically and knowingly are pushing immigration of able-bodied, fighting-aged men from the Islamic fundamentalist middle-east into Europe and the mass terrorist attacks and mass rapes are merely a preview of what's to come and the media's push for acceptance and the governments' cognitive dissonance is conditioning.
During Hurricane Katrina, the Murphy Oil refinery in St. Bernard parish, just outside of New Orleans, had a container rupture and leak oil on a lot of the surrounding neighborhood, including my grandparents and aunt/uncle's houses. After the clean up the land was deemed uninhabitable and the oil company was able to purchase all the land for very, very cheap. Many people that were affected and in the area believe that the oil company did it on purpose, and I tend to believe them.
Disney's frozen is only titled like that so when you Google "Disney frozen" the movie comes up instead of conspiracy theories
Swiper and The Map are in cahoots! Think about it… Swiper always seems to know exactly where Dora is going to be. And who is always telling her exactly where to go? Wake up sheeple!
El Duce right? Did you see that video of him being interviewed and then you can hear a woman screaming "help me" in the background or something like that? Pretty chilling
>>401>And yes I order all of my drinks with no ice I want to drink my raspberry coke not my raspberry coke diluted with slightly cooler water damn it
Although I curse internally when the dude filling the cup doesnt fill it to the top and leave a space of like 2 inches ("because you dont want ice lol"). Fuck u.
El Duce claims that Courtney offered him the gig, but that he turned it down and Allen Wrench (another shitty musician) did the deed. Duce died not long after, hit by a train in suspicious circumstances.
In Kurt and Courtney it is also suggested that Courtney had something to do with the overdose death of Kristen Pfaff, her old bassist who Kurt admired greatly. Perhaps too greatly.
I think Kurt killed himself, though. Long story.
I wouldn't say I believe in it but I can see the posibility being totally reasonable – in that the moon landing could be fake.
They had reason to (russian space race) and the means, and the weird stuff like the original, clear footage being deleted/tapes reused for other footage. Like what??? Possibly the greatest historical achievement of our people but they taped over the originals? Okay.
But I also think they could have gone and done it, for realsies, too.
Also here's some footage I hadn't seen before of the plane hitting the Pentagon. Spicy.
Just found this one, The New Order of the Barbarianshttps://pastebin.com/cFa6x8M8
I like reallygraceful's conspiracy channel on YouTube but I wish she would post sources for where she gets her info
Pizza Gate. There is something fishy going on in there, im not sure about children being stored in pizza shops, but those emails obviously have some sort of code in them. I mean, many of the people who were associated with it were called out for being pedophiles before it was confirmed, so there is some sort of legitimacy in the theory.
I enjoy her channel too! I also like Kendall Rae and embarrassingly, Shane Dawson lol. Apparently he's going back to the conspiracy videos soon.
YouTube monkey torture is so far down this list but that one isn't even a conspiracy, the worst vids get deleted but you can go watch playlists full of videos right now that look like reuploads from Chinese streaming services right now of people holding monkeys by the neck and filming their terrified reactions and animal on monkey violence filmed for human entertainment
Don't you think it's kinda suspicious how there's so few conspiracy theories about the church of scientology? They have their fingers in every pie from Hollywood to Neopets and yet nobody bats an eye…
Look up the Franklin Coverup and watch Conspiracy of Silence on youtube.
It's because we don't need any conspiracy theories about it, we know it's fucked and they're not even subtle about their abuse.
That's exactly why. NGL I really want to attend a meeting or take one of their tests.
I used to work next to one of their branches (a highly
-expensive building in a really exclusive area, just showed me how powerful they are) and they opened another huge branch close to where I live recently (in a building that belonged to another cult). Apparently it was a big deal and the founder's son attended. So many times I've been tempted to drop in when I pass them to see how crazy their test is or to see if I can get any funny leaflets but every time I chicken out. They're actually very intimidating. The buildings are high security and guards will ask you what your business is there. They turn people away who seem like they're just there out of curiosity and aren't genuinely serious about joining. I think they're afraid of being filmed.
In the lead up to them building the new branch they had people working for them for free and charging them for courses just to do translations. They were distributing leaflets in the area and going around to businesses and questioning things that didn't align with their beliefs (modern medicine, alcohol etc). They've set up all of these shady charities and companies so that they can target students, addicts, people with mental health problems and low-income families under the guise that they're helping. There's even allegations of them spying on people who aren't even members in public areas. I've seen what happened to Clearwater and I'm terrified that the same will happen here.
Has anyone seen this tv interview of this 11yr old ""drag queen""? The whole video is like one long, bad gut feeling.
>audience act like total shills, applauding everything the kid says
>kid seems either mentally challenged or subdued in some way and is also emaciated
>kid's father looks fucking creepy
I don't know, something seems off.
Because they're so out there? Maybe it's an area/interest thing but most people I know who give a rat's ass about scientology think they're creepy as Fuck. I have a few secondhand stories of my own from friends who weren't just having a lark but were genuinely interested in Scientology. Scary stuff. Major intimidation tactics.
Gerald Bill was assassinated by the CIA because he was on the verge of undercutting the space shuttle before the NRO could get all their satellites in orbit.
It’s super off. I’ve thought this for a while. Children shouldn’t be allowed to be this sexualised, the parents are complete enablers and it’s disgusting. He will be such a damaged adult, I’m calling it now. He’ll end up dead by drugs or an hero.
Ntayrt but I feel the same way about young kids who look about 7-8 (boys and girls) who do mua YouTube videos with really adult, sexually looks. They have really nice looking production so the parents are obviously encouraging it. It just creeps me out because I feel like they're going to become damaged in the future. Maybe I'm just a creep.
Just found this video about gangstalking techniques being conducted on low level private security guards, I used to be a private security guard in a remote area on government-owned property and some of the things discussed in this video are eerily familiar to some things I experienced. A loud as hell and scary sounding metallic frequency blasted for hours (there was a military-owned radio tower on the property), cars that would follow me to and from the gate outside my workplace with freemason bumper stickers, military looking guys showing up and asking me things like "do you work here?" and when I said yes they'd say something cryptic like "good" and leave, groups of people sneaking up behind my workstation and leaving silently when I heard their footsteps and shined my flashlight on them, and I was also very isolated and working 80+ hour a week overnight shifts alone. The Navy Seals were also doing some kind of training there. Could all be coincidences of course and this is just an unsubstantiated conspiracy YouTube video with no conclusive proof of anything, and of course I have no way to prove what I'm saying is true either, but I did quit that job because it was making me go nuts lol.
Spoiled because I'm going into ideas of child sexual abuse - While there is sexual abuse in Hollywood and it's heavily implied
that kids are involved, but as of recent there have been more underaged and sexual e-celberties as of late i.e danielle bregoli, malu trevejo and danielle cohn just to name a few, I believe since all these girls are sexual and still being signed to record deals and being on ads. I think their managers, producer's or some other system must be all working together or at least have a common cause to normalize sexual behavior in children and sexualize them til adults seeing kids as sex objects if not already, and if these young girls come out as being sexually abused in their youth, it would be dismissed in a i.e. she was asking for it through her clothes and makeup. I mean a year or two ago Musical.ly still had ads on YouTube there was one of Malu who is now 16 so back then she was younger twerking to a song about sex, I mean why would a app show that in an ad. It's disgusting and disturbing that that ad may be seen to thousands if not a million people when Musical.ly was popping off.
Sorry for the long rant.
This is less of a "conspiracy" in my eyes and more of a fact that will get confirmed with time.
People hate on cohn and bregoli and such for being annoying/talentless/disrespectful but all I see are young girls who are trying to be famous or have a better life and getting manipulated by predators in the process. Worst part is no one will be sympathetic to them because of their behavior, and these "managers" know this
The great replacement, 9/11 and notre dame / burning mosques falseflags. The fact that the USA for some reason cemented that one ship that caused ww1 makes me wonder. Also sweden buying nukes from Russia, Israel testing nukes in Africa. Plus the long ass lists of false flags america uses to justify wars
i would add millie bobby brown too.https://www.crazydaysandnights.net/search?q=millie
i guess take it w a grain of salt since it's a celeb gossip site. a lot of stuff there has been proven to be true though
1969 moon landing was staged, but not in a Hollywood basement or anything like that It was filmed on the moon. Astronauts were already there at least half a decade before the televised moon landing. Why? They wanted the check that there was nothing of interest (i.e. exploitable by the global elites) before showing the public.
The recent influx of the media pushing Area 51 memes and news about mass shooters in America is to cover up Epstein and Pedo island and his eventual "suicide" before his trial
Also, while I believe the Holocaust was real to some extent, it is at the very least over exaggerated to sell books and to be able to vilify Nazis while drawing attention away from other similar events. Hell, Israel is basically immune to international scrutiny because of it and this is coming from someone who doesn't even blame (((them))) for my problems
The only real conspiracy I believe in is the JFK assassination. I don't know who did it, but there's no way it was just a lone gunman.
I had a substitute teacher once in high school who ascribed Kennedy’s death to being accidentally shot by one of his secret service agents who tried to retaliate when Oswald shot and missed. He spent the entire day describing how it went down; it was the best day of history class of my life.
>>1343>and his eventual "suicide" before his trial>3 days ago
Oh god oh fuck
thought of this as soon as I heard the news today. What a fucked world we live in.
>>1343>>1343>America is to cover up Epstein and Pedo island and his eventual "suicide" before his trial
Is everyone going to just ignore the fact that this post was made 4 days ago, but Epstein was only found dead yesterday…
no the two previous posts also commented on this…
I think it was inevitable that someone with so many powerful connections who could have been affiliated with the scandal “killed himself.” Idk how it works for the rich but I’ve seen how suicide watches are done in jail on a county level and it’s pretty much impossible to blink without someone eyeing you. I think it’s sus that he got off of suicide watch so early.
Interesting. YT's killed the video and channel. Archive.org archived it:https://web.archive.org/web/*/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziQ_XHf1PBc
Yet when you load the page, it says they don't have it. Even though it starts to load and shows the video run time (1:17:57). They also won't load the name of the video or the name of the channel.
If they hadn't indexed the page, none of that would be there and they wouldn't show the page at all. Sometimes they'll index a page but only have the thumbnails, but not links to full images and videos. But that's not the case here. They're blanking out text on a page they clearly saved.
If the posting anon ever comes back, would you give us a run down of what was in the vid and if you remember the name of the channel.
Epstein is still alive. The man photographed on the gurney was a body double. He’s probably in Paraguay right now.
>>395>I dislike how the term conspiracy theory is used to discredit people sometimes. Something that used to be called a conspiracy theory is that companies and government organizations collect as much data as possible about everyone
The term "conspiracy theory" was first coined in an FBI document and was used to refer to the portion of the population that doubted the proposed circumstances surrounding John F. Kennedy's assassination. Interesting, huh?
Many known facts were only theories before being proven correct, and something being a "conspiracy" doesn't make it exempt from that. Those who dismiss an idea under the guise of it being a "conspiracy theory" are simply admitting that they don't want to attempt critical analysis, regardless of whether they'd arrive at the right or wrong conclusion if they did.>>621
I know this post is 2 years old, but why did you just copy and paste popular replies from an r/AskReddit thread?https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/7s36ub/what_conspiracy_theory_do_you_100_buy_into_and_why/dt1xwi7/>>1351
I use archive.org quite often and that link leads to a "page not archived" error page. I sure do wonder how, given that archived pages can't be deleted once they're archived…
lollll it’s actually a supremacy ploy by the water-haver super humans of the world.. we ONLY drink water, it’s healthier AND with ice it only becomes MORE water
Your post does seem a bit like you're joking around, but if you're into theories concerning fluoridated water there's a good argument for why food establishments maximize the amount of water they can put into beverages before it's not considered that beverage anymore. If their water is supplied by a company that owns a lot of water and water supply (lets say Nestle, for example) the establishments could be paid to use more of the water, similar to how a sponsorship would work. If the establishment's water is just tap water from their city's water supply, then the more they use, the higher their water bill will be (if you live in a country where you do have to pay for fresh, running water, such as in the US.) After all, food is a product even in restaurants, and there's nothing preventing a corporate partnership between a company with a large water supply and a food establishment, in the same way that there are partnerships between different brands and food products on the shelf at the store.
I've ordered my drinks without ice for years, but that's just because of a personal preference since I normally get soda and watered-down soda is disgusting.
When we will add Corona virus to this article? I'm tired of all of this already.
My conspiracy high horse is that (!(((someone somewhere))) /the Illuminati or whoever the fuck is literally programming children to be sex addicts, or open to abuse or something…. You see disturbing things like this video https://youtu.be/Ma0J69UwTHc
where there is a "secret button" on a child's toy where the genitals are supposed to be that makes seemingly sexual noises…. It's stuff like this, and a variety of other things that really make you think. What's the end goal of designing something like that?
We probably are being prepped for disclosure about aliens, too. But that's a topic for a different time :)
I believe religion is the source of misogyny. Christianity is the worst offender.
You haven't heard of Islam then…
Im told Christianity came before Islam
Yes it did and Judism before that which is also misogynistic.
Hinduism came before all of them which is also sexist. Then there's the greco-roman religion too that has sexism. Which is why I said religion.
I honestly agree with this too. Every major world religion teaches that women are somehow beneath men. I haven't come across a religion yet where women aren't expected to be subservient to men, where a woman's entire purpose isn't just to give birth, where women can achieve the same as men or where women have an equal opportunity to reach the afterlife. Even when I ask others, they just tell me to "read it anyway" in relation to sacred texts as if I'll somehow manage to get something out of a text that says I'm basically worthless.
I studied history for a few years and was shocked to find out that in my country, women had a lot of rights before we were forced to become Christians. A lot of women appear in folklore as being strong and independent. Women were allowed to own their own property and had many unique jobs (such as healers and midwives) that allowed them to earn their own money. Fast forward until after Christianity and suddenly women are being bought and sold like cattle, have no income/property, aren't allowed to hold jobs, are told they have no purpose other than giving birth and men have claimed the jobs that women once held (medicine, midwifery, education, spirituality, cooking/baking, fashion, certain farming roles etc) while claiming that the women who still continued the traditions were "quacks" or "witches" who deserved to be ostracised or killed instead of including them by giving them a formal education.
damn anon you really went there huh
I am fascinated by the Sasquatch, Bigfoot and the Yeti. I've always wondered if a few Neanderthals or another hominid species escaped mass extinction, and were able to manage staying under the radar enough to live separately from humans. I mean, we still discover new species of animals and uncontacted peoples in the year 2020. It's far-fetched, but maybe it's possible??
I really liked OUT OF SHADOWS.. these things should come to light
I'm sad that the LSA Conspiracy Alley turned private…
I think that even though you lose memories when you reincarnate, you keep a sense of wisdom and the ability to stay calm and controlled in more scenarios. Just because your soul is used to the earth bullshit.
This is a terrifying conspiracy though.. as a longtime believer in reincarnation until enough wisdom has been attained, I feel the urge to dig deeper but also I'm not sure I wanna know
religion was invented by men to help control women
every culture and religion up until like a century ago opressed women (except maybe the minoans)
religion is about controlling the behavior of men and women
not just women
(not trying to say all religions are bad, or all religions are only about controlling behavior, or that the behavioral controls are all necessarily bad)
Religions are about controlling all women and lower class men. Same as the patriarchy.
I guess that's true
It's still a pretty broad subject though
Some religions like buddhism seem to be more about a personal journey, and less need for social aspect
Older religions like paganism and greek mythology were mostly about explaining the weather and having big parties and feasts, no?
WTC 7 was brought down intentionally. The Department of Defense had an office there, this is known. They knew about the attacks beforehand and knew that after the attacks people would be investigating and snooping around and there was something they couldn't let be discovered. So they brought the building down with the terror attack as their cover. The bankers in the building could also have been involved.
Pedo operations and production of child porn are rampant and organized. Hollywood and politicians are not directly connected in the production of this material but they do protect and facilitate it because the real industry is blackmail. Epstein was someone in the business of getting proof of celebrities and politicians fucking kids on his island and exploiting them for profit/favors.
I once heard a conspiracy theory that Jews were importing grass from Ireland and the UK to other countries to destroy the environment. They're basing this off the fact that grass is capable of doing extreme damage in areas where it shouldn't be because it dominates the area by killing off other pollinator plants (mostly to extinction) and wreaks havoc on native bee populations, and that Jews were taking advantage of this to covertly force us all into an agricultural crisis that will cause a food shortage.
This is some total nutjob shit but I just noticed this thread and maybe you'll enjoy it. Fun fact: Varg Vikerness the black metal musician who murdered his band member believes this theory
There's a tree, the tree of heaven
, that is actually a plague in a lot of countries but it comes from China.
A lot of our surroundings are meant to lower our spiritual vibe and separate us from the Divine.
Music played on the radio and as it's sold is played at 'dead' frequencies, and the melodies are simple and uninspiring. Buildings are becoming uglier, making for less spiritually enriching surroundings, and creating less pride in the nation. Our food and water has become more unnatural, and our devices are made to hook us and detach us from reality, from spiritual saturation. The media is deliberately uninspiring and creates a sense of doom and dishonesty, and division, and humans are being encouraged into engaging in hedonism to avoid forming long term relationships, and distracting from the spirit with the flesh. Which leaves you empty.
Anyone saturated in the effects of the beast is easier to control and influence. It spiritually drains you and prevents you from connecting with the pure, original and divine. Without these impurities, you are less dependent on the beast to sustain you.
Love each other, remember that we're affected by what's around us. Jesus forgave us so we should forgive each other. Grow your own food and connect with the earth. Indulgence is fine but don't use it to fill a hole, and put your phone down. There are some powerful people who want you to be a slave without spirit, out of touch with something they could never know themselves. Don't give in.
Caucasians descended from Atlantians
Jodi Arias is an actress and never killed anyone, covid is a psyop, and we are ruled by jewish elite families that are all related and their bloodline goes all the way back to ancient phoenicia and maybe even further.
By the way pizzagate, Satanists rule the world, Jeffrey espstein shit(hes a jewish agent playing a role), pedophile cabal, flat earth , aliens, mk ultra mind controlled celebs, mandela effect, are all created by them as distractions. If any of those were real they wouldnt be talked about in the media as much as they are.
The medieval warm period made the amazon region and west africa so hot it delayed the development of the people living on those areas(from excessive heat during pregnancy)
Yes, jews do run the media and other things and use covert methods to increase their power and push their ideas. It isn't something that I want to believe but it is hard to ignore.
this is interesting anon. could you expand on your jodi arias theory? i have had a fascination with the case for years. i'd love to hear more of this
I worked with the cousin of the guy Arias killed. They actually have the same names, both cousins do. The family claims none of them liked her and did not feel comfortable around her. I don't believe it was a conspiracy, though. She's based for killing that pedo.
Just a structure fire sis :@)
I’m not really a conspiracy theory type of gal but I genuinely believe feds killed Tupac, and his rape accusation was a COINTELPRO hit job
Christianity was wildly femenist in the early church. When women were forced into marriage but men could 'divorce' (aka abandon for dead) their wives at any time, jesus said that men also had to stay committed to their wives. When Roman views said women were essentially defective men who's bodies didn't have enough heat to expel their genitals, Paul said that men should love their wives as their own bodies. Paul also cites more women than men in the last chapter of Romans, including only one deacon who is female. And Mary magdeline and her sister Martha are credited with converting all of France, and Mary Magdeline was the 1st to see risen jesus and was called an 'apostle among apostles'. It's just that men and patriarchy got ahold of it and twisted it so it's basically satanic now. That's not even really a conspiracy, the changes and the motivated translational decisions are well documented for how they slowly twisted it. It's fucked.
Can you provide info on the translation changes?
Just to add another example, Jesus said if a man looks at a woman with lustful intent he has already sinned ("committed adultery")
And that is far more feminist than what people are saying now about "it's a woman's fault if a man sexualises a woman wearing revealing clothing"
'the making of biblical womanhood' goes into some of it, but also had blog-ish parts. https://www.patheos.com/blogs/anxiousbench/2016/07/the-tniv-revisited-medieval-style/
is by the same author and talks about the ESV and other translations. Many things played into this. For instance, when secular noblemen were trying to use the church for their own power, they didn't want women to get positions. Then, to allegedly combat that, the church said all priests had to be celibate in order to try to make it so only people who really wanted to serve enrolled. Priests just ended up using this to further demean women and took mistresses anyway. Fucked.>>4603
He says '28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.' aka not 'you're sinning' but directly telling the men it is their fault and if they try to say 'ohhh she just looked so great my hands moved on their own uwu' he's like 'well then cut off your hand you FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT' (but we all know their hands don't move on their own, they know their hands don't move on their own, and if they did truly think that then cutting it off would make perfect sense.)
look at how your bible is broken up into sections as well. In the original texts they had books, but not sections. In most translations 'Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.' is separated by a heading from the following verse 'Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord.' to justify the idea that a woman submitting to her husband is a seperate, more extensive submission than all members of the church should do to each other. In the actual text, these two verses are literally right next to each other. Then there is a long section explaining to those men (who were told that women were essentially foul, failed men by roman teachings) that they should love their wives like jesus/god loved them. This is a reoccurring theme (love/forgive your neighbor as god first loved/forgave you) and was deliberately twisted to mean something more condescending than what is repeatedly preached in every other part of the bible.
A lot of modern feminist outrage is directed to school dress codes targetting girls. A lot of feminists talking about how they should be able to wear whatever they want. I agree with that, but I think we should look at WHY girls want to dress as they do. When I go into a target, all the girls' clothes reveal way more skin, are more formfitting, are more sexualizing than the boy's clothes. They boys at schools are wearing baggy gym shorts and t shirts and they are marketed as having cool slogans and being comfy. Why do girls feel the need to dress cute always? It seems obvious to me that the patriarchy is involved in this level as well. They convince you that YOU want to dress like that. Men look for women who have a hard time defining what they want vs. what the men around them want. This means their dress is inconsequential (if they are in a burqua vs. booty shorts vs. a gown) except as a signal to men in that area that they have been brought up in a system where they are participants in their own subjugation. Idk how to identify these flags. I think you just have to go through self-examination and rebuilding until you can separate your wants and desires from others'. Not that it's bad to dress to please a man you want to attract, but you should be aware you are doing it and not insist it's not the case.
Recently started to lucid dream by accident. I don't intent to I just suddenly just have control of the dream. Actually a lot of the time I have no clue what to do in the moment, feels kinda like stage fright.>>1247
This is horrible to think about but also very plausible. To tack on my own conspiracy: I genuinely believe that most men are attracted to people far younger than they'd care to admit. If you look at many historical societies and the age girls could be become (likely sexual) wives then you soon come to the conclusion that a LOT of men today would be sexually perusing teenagers if it wasn't for age of consent laws.>>4610>They convince you that YOU want to dress like that
I feel like. Took me way to long to realize that ultimately you enjoy life so much more if you focus on buying comfy clothes.
If you look at other societies with less gendered dress codes they tend to opt towards flowing comfortable garments (though I understand a lot of this is also ease of tailoring) even so; togas, robes, even many hippy clothes of the 60 all have more comfort and androgyny than is pushed on kids today.
My whole child hood my father was convinced that "they" would come back for the Towers. So when 9/11 happened in my freshman year I wasn't surprised. Being fed a conspiracy theory your whole life having it come true and then realizing that no one else saw it coming really messes you up. And no, my dad wasn't on to something he believed in dozens of crazy conspiracies. I had conversations with him about bigfoots lol
