    [–] In 2018, Where Does Victoria's Secret Stand? Lingerie, underwear, and what's sexy anymore? flamingfireworks 4 points ago in femalefashionadvice

    Oh, absolutely.

    I just mean like, to the best of my knowledge size 8 is in the territory of "you're fucking weird if you dont make anything for this size" not of "sorry, theres just not enough people this size who shop for this kind of clothes to make it worth manufacturing" you know

    IIRC, in a recent interview their marketing guy went out and said they intentionally dont have representation for trans women/transfeminine people or anyone who's not skinny as fuck.

    Victoria's secret is that she's narrow minded as hell

    Colonialism is a byproduct of a system that directly rewards being the person with the most resources. A system where there's no incentive to push others down would have no incentive to go to other countries to steal their shit and literally fucking eat people.

    [–] Parents are antivax, but I want vaccines, what do I do? flamingfireworks 5 points ago in TooAfraidToAsk

    Its also, IMO, not as serious of a case (especially considering that OP can handle it themself now).

    Their resources should go towards preventing pain in the future rather than right now.

    "i am a very intelligent person with a refined vocabulary which is why i cannot comprehend very common english slang that's been used on the world wide web for multiple years"

    Or that its kids being kids.

    "kids being kids" never seems to come into play when its you getting your stuff scratched up or jumped on.

    Im 99% sure that where your body constantly has pressure affects fat displacement too, so if you're always sleeping on your stomach your body might displace more fat to a beer gut (leading to you looking more fat than someone whos got the same weight in fat on their body, but displaced more evenly)

    My elementary school had to enforce rules on reading books just because kids would end up hogging the shit out of specific ones, which easily could have been what the system was in place for (librarian is able to make sure everyone gets to read the popular books, not just the kids who bullied other kids into staying out of their way)

    It'd be pretty irresponsible for an economics class to not at least touch on systems other than capitalism, because even if you're entirely opposed to them they can help broaden viewpoints and point out places where people have seen flaws in existing systems.

    "you're not cool if you dont use heavily addictive substances that can easily kill you or severely damage your body for clout points in a group for musicians that talk frequently about how they wish they could live life without using these substances" is a boiling hot take

    IMO it worked 5-10 years ago, its just falling off because he's still rapping from the voice of someone who's struggling, not societally accepted, etc despite being one of the most universally accepted rappers, not really financially struggling, etc.

    *life gets way better

    If you're not a rich, white, jock in high school, theres just about no way that your life doesnt improve significantly in the years after it barring some sort of catastrophe.

    IIRC, it was also supposedly some kinda glitch (things being sold at MUCH lower prices than they should have been)

    The real shitshow was them not doing refunds/cancelling orders for something like a few weeks or over a month. People are used to "this is a ridiculous deal, im sure they'll cancel it" but they're not fans of "i gave someone 100$ for a good or service and was not communicated with for a long amount of time, and was then just given my money back with no apology for essentially being duped into giving a company an interest free loan for as long as they wanted". I was pretty irritated when it happened because i paid a solid amount, and wasnt a fan of having my clothing budget at a time of the year when i actually needed to get a new jacket and stuff getting tied up for weeks and then handed back to me with a "haha whoops".

    I dont understand people who's response to skating/biking on stuff is to stand in the way when they're already in motion. I get it if its them trying to make it so its easier to just leave, but its not like you're not getting fucked up with a 150lb adult moving at 10-25 miles per hour slamming into you, sometimes with anger.

    And increases the odds of having a spare 300-1000$ for something that isn't required for most people's jobs or day to day life.
