Wow tiktok is fucked up. I did not know it shows who clicked your links.
That being said, the 3 of y’all that tiktok showed me were a smoke show.
Some dude had a jawline sharper than razors, other dude is built like the giga chad, and there was a female dancer that had a body ody
>female dancer that had a body ody
Didn't you know there is a stripper in ppd?
Aye now I do. Got a return offer for a job in her city might fuck around and throw a rack at her if she still dancing.
Nah fr tho u got no clue about anything in this community I’m just here to consume and respond to rage bait mainly
We should have a guessing game here on who those 3 PPD-ers could be
oh shit I didn't know either 😟 that cursed clock app comes up with new ways to doxx me every week at this point
Well shit I didn’t know this either
Why are some people so insistent that being the opposite gender to themselves is only upside?
Is conceding that there are some advantages to being your own gender that hard? It's as if naming even one advantage is a total betrayal of your sex.
i dont know, I like being a girl and would never want to be a man. I envy some stuff about men, but nothing that would be worth giving up girly shit and the possibility of being a mom.
Yeah that's cool!
And I think it's also totally fine to say "I prefer being a girl and the female experience but I do think men have things easier on average".
I've just had a couple of conversations where it's been like: "oh in these circumstances, men do have problems. It's hard for men to get emotional support sometimes". To be then told "those aren't gendered experiences. Here's how being a woman is worse in every way...".
I've also had it in the past where on a conversation about privileges that men have. I've stated out the problems women encounter and I've had extreme reactions from men along the lines of "those aren't real privileges. We didn't ask for this" etc. etc.
Side note: being able to carry a child is one of those human experiences I wish I could have gone through at least once. Being that close to your baby must be a very different experience.
yeah, i find both sides completely ridiculous and baby-like. like "if I'm struggling, then I must be struggling the hardest" kind of logic.
I don't even think men have it easier on average, at least not in my country. I think some things are easier to them and some harder, and vice versa for women.
yeah, I look forward to it. I'd gladly endure periods and wacky hormones all my life to have that experience.
> Is conceding that there are some advantages to being your own gender that hard?
Being able to pee standing up is worth the vastly increased risk of dying to violence.
I'm not even joking.
If you're the kind of guy who is *worried* about the increased risk of dying to violence, then you aren't the kind of guy who is going to succumb to it.
Everyone wants what they can't have and has what they can't have
I think both have negatives of course, but it seems like most of the de transitioners are FtM. Going from a Female to a male has to feel like turning from a human into a ghost
>Into a ghost
I think each gender has different arenas where they get ignored. In the workplace, to be honest, I really feel the privilege being male. People trust me and my opinions more naturally than women even in a more progressive company.
In social groups I've really noticed the complete opposite. If I'm with my wife I'm basically just her male accessory. If we're chatting to other parents or family they'll always default to talking to her first. I feel like I need to wave my arms around sometimes to actually get in the discussion.
I've told my wife that sometimes I need to spend some time socializing without her because otherwise it's just a completely miserable experience.
I think it's because the line between butch lesbian and trans man is very blurred.
Whereas with gay men it's a more clear delineation. You can be quite femme as a gay man and still not get confused as a woman.
I say that, but then I'm remembering someone like Jeffree Star who still identifies as a man but presents veeery feminine.
Additionally, I think women are more likely to seek out that in-group belonging with LGBT communities, which is why they'd feel the social pressure to be more than *just* lesbian or bisexual.
AND. When trans men are confronted with the sexual reassignment surgery, it is nowhere near as convincing as the trans women's surgery. It's much easier for surgeons to remove a penis to create a vagina that looks aesthetically similar, vs building up a *new* penis out of skin grafts. It's a lot more work, and result in a lot of scarification of your body due to those skin grafts.
I dont know, with modern science and testosterone a lot of them look more manly and get better facial hair than men
I have back to back Zooms until 1:30. Love the end of the legislative session and being stuck in meetings.
/s in case that wasn’t obvious.
Back to back Zooms just means more time to spend on PPD between meetings ;)
True dat! Although on at least one occasion, I was caught up in a debate here and had my name called in a meeting to report on something and had them to repeat the question. 😳
Wow get a load of [this sight to behold.](https://www.tiktok.com/@holmestemikosavag/video/6999092521229995269?_d=secCgYIASAHKAESPgo8%2B5BDG0YRMB7fQzVoytikimePO%2BbvybIVrFT2%2BIfgpfvHqg3M7Vvxk1yHUx74GWYzTks5cXUg2XMhyIIYGgA%3D&checksum=1630afaba1dce921adb5b767ebbaa2baccba72ede19077f205b4a524cb2f4fd4&language=en&preview_pb=0&sec_user_id=MS4wLjABAAAA29P4dURNW_rAW8bLJN6w4EwAL2v5rexyB-Jxh2dpFKZx_19uszyII7QBqU8LFst0&share_app_id=1233&share_item_id=6999092521229995269&share_link_id=D2487047-C9A5-421A-9D82-F266218752ED&source=h5_m×tamp=1631032335&tt_from=copy&u_code=db0hc91c64h92i&user_id=6794260148468941829&utm_campaign=client_share&utm_medium=ios&utm_source=copy&_r=1)
Women in comments calling her beautiful. And calling the people who are making jokes trash wastes of space.
Not a single person should be encouraging an individual being 400 pounds+ unless the encouragement is encouraging them to go to a gym.
That is not beautiful, and there should be absolutely no positive words given for being content at that size. Body positivity is getting out of hand.
Call a man short and no one bats an eye.
Call a woman fat and everybody goes crazy.
It's rude in real life to call a man short. I've never seen this play out.
People who are fat (outside of medical reasons), have bad personalities. It means you do not wish to change your unhealthy ways.
> People who are fat (outside of medical reasons)
Whats a medical reason for being fat? I mean honestly can you name one? I only know of two and both are syndromic and far far worse than just being fat.
> Whats a medical reason for being fat?
You named one the other one is willards syndrom.
I will be honest with you. I have no idea. It's something i hear +BMI people use as excuse.
Yes its 'muh thyroid' and 'muh PCOS'. Its bullshit. PCOS is the most common these days and the cure for it is, weight loss.
the pcos is the one excuse that truly blows my mind. surplus weight and bad eating habits make other symptoms so much worse and losing weight would significantly improve their lives way more than it would to a regular fat person.
Hypothyroidism comes to mind also some medications might make you fat.
Very slight metabolic shift lower, if you don't' treat it, which is really easy, you just eat less.
>which is really easy, you just eat less.
Same as telling an alcoholic to stop drinking.
Oh don't give me this bullshit. I'm a former fatty. We know the lies.
And given how many americans use meds of some sort as part of their daily life, this is more common than many are willing to admit.
This is also part of why chinese love to mock american obesity epidemic, being paranoid against western medicine, and somewhat less obesity.
Most people are fat because the don't watch what they eat.
Yeesh thats just sad
I am tired of fat people ngl. No matter what people say in the comments, that woman KNOWS she’s fat and she has chosen to not act on it. The weight says enough about her as a person but the comments are needlessly kind
It's weird. People shouldnt be openly ridiculed because of their body, but at the same time repeating the soulless mantra that theyre beautiful isnt doing anyone any favors, especially if theyre going tonget indignant that people arent attracted to them.
Self esteem shouldnt just be tied to body, but giving an opposite, unflinching positive reaction is not going to solve any problems.
> It is suv
Red would have hit it, god rest his soul.
>Red would have hit it
The FSM necessitates that women circlejerk each other in public. Guarantee none of those women think she’s actually attractive in their private lives.
>Women in comments calling her beautiful
It makes the women feel better about themselves. Because if THIS huge lady is beautiful, then it makes these women goddesses.
I'm not really one to police how people dress for the most part. And I certainly wouldn't harass people for it.
[But this guy on the front page](https://www.reddit.com/r/PublicFreakout/comments/pjn1x6/guy_harasses_women_on_the_beach_because_theyre/) telling girls not to wear thong bikinis at a beach with kids seems... reasonable?
All the girls' excuses sounded like bullshit, "I'm not flaunting anything." "Don't look at me. Why were you looking at me?"
I'm a woman and it makes *me* feel weird as shit when I'm at the beach with my 92 year old grandma and I see women with 98% of their ass cheeks hanging out.
it seems like such a weird thing to approach someone for, especially using the bible to do that lmao he even says that he can't look at anything else but their bodies, that's super cringe. kids dont pick up on sexual cues like that, there's no toddler who's going to be paying more attention to ass cheeks than the sand on a beach.
These people would lose their shit in Europe :D
Hard to make a judgment without seeing what they were wearing. Unpleasent video all around tho. The dude definitely seems cringey to approach them and start reciting bible verses at them. The girls give off strong bimbo vibes and have obnoxious sounding voices like nails on a chalkboard.
To me it comes off as one of those exercises from an evangelical church--I can't remember its name but they famously had a school or pastor training center near my undergraduate university. They used to make their trainees or whatever come out and they would literally do things like this with the goal of surviving being heckled. Massive crowds of people yelling. It was basically similar to that PUA thing of approaching women endlessly until the sting of rejection is nothing but also a sort of hazing ritual I assume to weed out those who can't take it.
Tbh, the ones I *did* see looked like normal bikinis from the front. I didn't see them stand up though.
And I get the function of a bikini. I do. I wear them. But when you are exposing as much skin as possible, you have gone beyond the function of the garment and are dressing to titillate. Like the g-string.
> All the girls' excuses sounded like bullshit, "I'm not flaunting anything." "Don't look at me. Why were you looking at me?"
It’s because it is bullshit. I’ve seen a guy get arrested with my own eyes for being well endowed with a really tight speedo.
It was indecent exposure. Cops didn’t take him in but they kicked him off the beach. Nobody wants their daughters seeing a grown mans cock and balls.
Women can walk around with damn near their whole pussy out and if you say something you’re a creep.
Women have a lot of power and can do pretty much whatever they want right now, I don’t know why, and it’s not necessarily fair but it’s whatever.
Oh there's definitely a double standard. When guys show as much skin as women do they usually get called on it.
I went to a school that had uniforms and the girls definitely got waaay more leeway than the guys did and they would still throw a fit whenever they got in trouble for violating the dress code.
Where is the line?
Should we revert back to Gidget type bathing suits?
Idk. Are the new bathing suits just gonna be nude colored nipple pasties, and a strip of tape that covers the asshole and the vagina?
It's like a toddler going, "I'm not touuuching you" in regards to nudity.
So answer the question.
What's your line?
Bikinis ok, as long as they're "Modest" bikinis?
Two piece, but not a bikini?
One piece only, but French cut ok?
One piece only but modest?
My line is the amount of ass and tits and vagina lips being shown.
As Justice Potter Stewart put:
"I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description ["hard-core pornography"], and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it."
Just because you're uncomfortable doesn't mean others should dress according to your comfort level. If you don't want to be in front of women wearing thong bikinis, don't go to beaches or only go to beaches in really conservative countries.
> Just because you're uncomfortable doesn't mean others should dress according to your comfort level.
With this logic why is it acceptable for the law to prohibit men from walking around with their dick out.
And would you be happy if your little kids saw a grown ass mans dick out?
Just because you’re uncomfortable doesn’t mean others should dress according to your comfort level right?
If you identify as a woman you might be able too
Valid question. I'll post my reply below:
>Every country/society has reached a consensus on what's acceptable for them, and then enacts laws to codify that consensus. In the country where that video was taken, the consensus seems to be thong bikinis in beaches are fine. If a member of that society isn't comfortable with it, they just need to deal privately instead of asking the person following the law-codified consensus to stop what they're legally entitled to.
Why should any establishment have any dress code ever?
Why is public nudity illegal?

Go find God
Come back after you found God
Dude, just shower more and be witty.
You'll be scheduling chicks a month in advance!
I'd say your best bet is using whacky worms. They come in all colors and the smell will attract the women to your hook.
Head to the nearest lake. That'll sort it out.
What the hell is wrong with you? Are you delusional? You are in Scandinavia and you are brown guy? Go date a brown women.
>don’t have pictures so to speak, just some selfies
There's your 1st issue. Changing pics around on my OLD made me go from maybe 0 to 1 match per day total to 0 to 5 per app per day. Action shots. Action shots are key.
My pics are
-- pic w friend at football game someone else took cropping his body half out so its clear who i am
-- pic at lake someone else took
-- pic of me and two girls snowshoeing (someone else took)
-- shirtless gym pic someone else took (on tinder... Omitted on bumble)
-- picture of me mid head kick in sparring
-- picture of me mid teep in sparring
-- picture of me and a buddy holding a case of conor mcgregor whiskey with his gf doing bunny ears on him
ZERO selfies. ZERO!
If you want to send me your pics and i can send you mine as a reference im down
Well that's priority number 1 for Online dating. Get some candid shots. You really only need 1 of you with a friend. The rest can be you
More likely reason is you’re a brown man in a majority white country
How tall are you?
Yeah 5'9 is considered mediocre in general but especially so in Scandinavian countries. Those are the worst countries for an under 6ft guy to try to date in.
Yet another kid in my family (the children of my generation, so like nieces, nephews, second cousins) surpassing me in height.
I might regain the title as the shortest member of my family within 5 years.
I was the tallest woman in my extended family at 5’2” and change, until my daughter hit 5’6”.
Most of the women in my family are like 5’2 to 5’5 with a few taller outliers.
Yes, its usually the 5s and the 6s who think they are hot shit when in reality they are justa dimr a dozen thots, but i also noticed that it depends on race but i cant say that here
I think they're just different flavors of "not nice". Average and below average women are more prone to bitterness. Above average women are more prone to arrogance.
I don't know for sure if women rate themselves accurately or not but I do think the vast amount of options they have, especially on dating apps has the potential to inflate their view of themselves.
The article describes it as
> SleepZoo’s decidedly unscientific online survey..
Idk, I just think the effects of online dating would disproportionately increase women's ranking of their attractiveness and decrease men's.
How would it work the other way around where men get inflated confidence in their looks? It just doesn't make sense to me that men get complemented less on their appearance, get less matches and struggle more to get sex and dates but somehow still end up with inflated self esteem.
Life is too short to concede that you are below average. What will be will be. You don't need the world constantly trying to take you down a peg.
The difference is that wome can get away with that.
In general, women rate themselves about correct or lower in nearly every faucet including looks, and men a little higher. Can be googled as confidence gap.
I think it's reasonable to suggest overly confident women are perpetually single and really loud about themselves, where as women with lower self esteem stay out of the spotlight.
Though irl location probably makes a difference.
Ugly women and hot women have the best personalities...probably because there's no ambiguity as to where they stand
Ugh I crashed my bike today. Got some nasty road rash on my leg and my left elbow doesn't feel right. On plus side I had 3 ~~white knights~~ ~~simps~~ ~~men~~ bystanders try to help and chase down the guy that clipped me. However on the other hand crashing fucking hurts and my husband is going to call me an idiot.
Did it look something like this?
Here’s some quality content.
What's the boundary between white knights and human decency?
also your husband sounds like a jerk lol
OP sounds like a jerk, and as we on this sub like to say, assortative mating is the reality so....
> also your husband sounds like a jerk lol
Lol, if its possible for someone to be a bigot towards cyclists, thats my husband.
lol, I also hate cyclists
y tho? We're just trying to get our cardio on.
They take up space on the roads and make us have to slow down or swerve around them. Its especially annoying in forested areas with windy roads where you cant see around the corner and end up being stuck behind the cyclists until there's a straight path to pass them on 😤
I hate cyclists as well.
cyclists =/= your loved one cycling
idk, I'd feel very conflicted about it. I hope I don't end up with a cyclist 🤔
This is why I stopped helping random women.
Reminds me of a few months ago when I saw a car on the side of the road with their emergency lights on. I came to a full stop next to the car, looked over, saw it was a cute girl and drove away lol
You dropped this 👑
LOL. Honestly, good on you.
Happy cake day!
And yeah, there’s no universe where a girl that cute would’ve helped me on the side of the road with my shit fucked. But that’s not even the part that gets me lol, it’s good to be selfless now and then.
The part that gets me is when people are ungrateful/disrespectful after you tried to help them.
I understand not stopping etc but I'm curious, would you have helped if she was ugly ? lol
I can’t say for sure either way. Although if she was 3-4 range I think I would’ve been more likely to help.
Everybody loves cute girls. Uggos need help haha
lmao thats hilarious to me
Hilarious like this guy is crazy? Or do you get it? Or both lol?
both kind of lol I love that being pretty is a deterrent to you but I also kinda get it
Yeah I try to ask myself "would I be willing to help if it was a random guy rather than a cute girl" and "would they help me if the roles were reversed".
If the answer to either of those questions is no then I don't help.
Eh, it’s good to be nice sometimes. But I understand where you’re coming from
For sure. I think the best policy for men is to always leave women alone. As a man, you never know you is reasonable and who is gonna cry victim. As a woman, you never know who is reasonable and who wants to hurt or use you.
and thanks, one year of shitty reddit polls lol
We are fucked. Things are bad. Could it get any worse?
Read *The Gulag Archipelago*. The long version. Then you'll know.
That's the fun part about life... it can always get worse.
I think it's better not to ask or you'll find out that yeeeh, it can get worse. Far worse.
What is it with some modern fashion companies using disgustingly obese models 🤮🤮
I want to see what the clothes look like on a normal body not a sack of potatoes
I love them lol they actually show what are the cute clothes and what are the clothes that only look nice bc the model is super skinny. long live the fat fashion models
The male gaze abandoned catalogs after internet porn.
Make fat hate great again
Normal in America is overweight
Then why are the male mannequins Greek gods?
Fucking rip 🤣
I’d hate to see super fat guys modeling clothes I’m interested in. Not that I ever really pay attention to how it’d fit, that’s more of a woman’s clothing problem. This is coming from someone who’s yo-yoed hard and is working on losing the weight again.
What’s hilarious is I saw this on an ad for gym clothes
Hey! Fatties gotta go somewhere to get fit lol
I’m in this weird spot at the moment where I’m both bulky and kinda fat lol. Don’t feel like I need any clothing model representation though 😂
I’m not a super skinny tall model but I don’t need “representation” either. I’d rather see how the clothes fall normally.
I know. I am getting ads for [Parade](https://yourparade.com/) underwear, and they make the underwear look so unappealing.
That pubic hair 🤢
I have issues with photos that give you no idea how this piece looks like because they took weird angles or a model was posing in a way that just doesn't make sense.
Those suck too
Just take a pic of a skinny model standing up straight. That’s the best way to get an idea of what clothes will fit like
I'd prefer to have photos of several models of different sizes and height.
Why do women feel "empowered" by selling naked pics online to random lonely men, or charging men in the real world to have sex with them?
For the same reason teenagers feel "empowered" going against their parents' good advice.
Because people (e.g. you, other men and other women) would prefer they not to and they're doing it anyway?
Empowerment is mostly about having freedoms and the feeling of exercising those freedoms. I don't know if you're a conservative but it might be the same feeling as buying a gun in the face of liberals trying to stop you being able to do so. Or getting an abortion etc etc.
For men, selling nudes online isn't empowering because nobody cares.
dolla dolla bills y'all.
Can you speak normally please
what don't you understand?
Nothing. But use proper english please.
Well if you understood, then I don't see what the problem is.
I don’t know anything about ‘empowerment’, but I don’t see why any attractive woman wouldn’t at this point.
Because many people, me included, despise the commodification of sex, especially in its modern form. Intertwining the most natural primal activity with the most artificial concept ever invented sends my “something is seriously wrong here” meter to the fucking stratosphere.
Now put all of that behind a screen and it’s even more whack, at least whores still involve a human touch.
>I don’t see why any attractive woman wouldn’t at this point.
Because some things (i.e. sex) lose all their value when they're monetized. Willingly selling sex is basically selling your soul.
Do men give value to sex as much as women do?
Don't see why not.
If that’s how you view it, sure.
Women sell sex all the time and it’s considered the norm, as long as there isn’t a crude exchange of green paper.
Teanna Trump is a nationally known prostitute, with no absence of horny suitors, wealthy and broke, young and old, pining for her attention. Prostitution and online sex work isn’t completely viewed through the lens that it may have been 10 or 20 years ago.
I know if I was any of the girls I’ve ever asked out, there’s no way I wouldn’t have an online sex work presence.
Nothing more empowering in this world than cash. Unpleasant truth.
The “empowerment” line has been used by nude models and porn actresses for ages. And maybe they do derive some feeling of power from it but if they’re being honest they’re doing it for the money. No shade, but it’s about the money.
Gotta give my wife credit for being self aware.
We were talking about some friend of hers divorce, and I asked her "what is the biggest factor in a woman filing for divorce" and she responded very quickly "she makes more money than the man".
But women aren't shallow bro
>"she makes more money than the man".
It's a bit broader than that. It's that he didn't live up to ***her*** expectations. A lot of times it is that he's not making the money she expected but it can be other things too. It's like when a company's earnings don't meet analysts' expectations -- the company may still be profitable but its stock price falls nonetheless. It doesn't really matter if her expectations were reasonable or not -- it just matters that he didn't meet them.
Did you throw her a treat and pat her on the head for giving the right black pill answer?
LMAO. Y’all kill me.
That's the redpill tho, the blackpill would be a woman would stay with her husband if he earns less as long as he has good facial bones
Red pill doesn’t care about why marriages break up. That’s not the business they’re in.
Addendum: they care but only to the extent men can use that info to hit on married women.
I think you're confused with PUA or Mgtow. A lot of the people that started the redpill thing sandman, rollo Tomassi, rich Cooper, and others I'm missing are or were married
I’m not confusing anything. TRP has advised men against marriage. And it doesn’t matter why (so don’t give me “but but but only cuz woman aren marriage material anymore!”) they don’t advise men to marry. Period.
Rollo et all weren’t advocating for marriage or relationships.
TRP is about teaching men to understand and exploit what women are attracted to to get casual sex. “spinning plates” does not and has never referred to polygamy.
Bruh did you just say married men aren't advocating for relationships? Most of them tell to earn 6 figures and sleep with a lot of women to be ready for a relationship. I swear you've seen 1 PUA video where the guy was telling people to lie for sex and now that's all of the redpill
Have you ever read the sidebar?
I've been in the space for 7 years
And you’re going to tell me that spinning plates has anything to do with relationships?
And that TRP hasn’t gone on record saying the don’t advise that men marry more than once?
My golden rule is I don't fuck stupid.
You giving IQ tests out at parties?
Yes, its called conversation.
Lmao the amount of women coping in this thread:
"Women keep other women single" is a pretty good saying. Why do roasties/spinsters get so insecure when younger girls get more attention?
21/27 is barely an age gap. That’s perfectly acceptable to everyone
Did you read the comment section?
It doesn’t seem that inflammatory to me - they’re acknowledging that there is an age and maturity gap. Which there, even though I think it’s pretty minute
It sounds more like people are focusing on this girls apprehension about him, which is ok. She should listen to her gut, everyone should
The OP themselves already had their own doubts and concerns about the situation, its not like other women attempted to sway the OP into feeling that way. The commenters gave their own opinion, some even encouraging her to date him. I feel like your twisting the situation to fit your own narrative.
21/27 is a huge age gap??
21 and 27, it’s seen as an age gap because the average 21 and 27 are about two stages of life away from each other.
No. Both focusing on their careers while still going out and having fun.
My wife was working by 21 and I was in school until I was 32. Life stages are a meme.
I'm pretty different from when I as 21. I never dated anyone with more than a 4 year age gap and was very strict on that because for me personally, I changed so much from teens to 20's to 30's. Sometimes I wish I can go back in time just to impress the hell out of myself.
You were in undergrad on a continual basis from 18 to 32?
