What do you think japan and it's culture would be like today if it stayed out of WW2?

>> No. 1004 [Edit]
That's simply impossible since the state ideology of Imperial Japan, State-Shinto, was religious in nature. Japan staying out the war or winning the war would have meant a strengthening of its native religious traditions (Shinto) and a weakening of all foreign doctrines, including Buddhism, which wass already happening prior to the war.
That and the fact that Christianity had already been present in Japan for centuries and never managed to spread outside of these obscure little communities.

'They cannot believe that there are cultural values that are the result of centuries of historical development, which cannot simply be bought. It was no bad joke when, after the war, they bought the ruins of German castles and moved them stone by stone to the U.S.A. They really thought that they had purchased a piece of national history embodied in stone, and were naive enough to think that mocking laughter from Europe was respect for the wealth that enabled them to buy what their own tradition and culture lacked'.

'Although we affirm the technical achievements of our age, we see behind them an intellectual strength that grows from the roots of our people. Machines are a means to an end, not an end in themselves. As much as we appreciate the achievements of modern civilization and use them to improve life, we know that they are not the sole meaning of life. There are national values that are the result of centuries of history and tradition. They cannot be purchased, only built by the labor of generations'.

Japan is the only country on earth inhabited by real human beings and running on a cultural operating system relatively unmolested by judeo-christian slave morality.
The west is shit because it was literally built on "virtue ethics" that became stoicism and then amalgamated with Judaism into Christianity to form the slave morality BS that we see today. Nietzsche explains all of this. One of the hallmarks of slave morality is "free will" (which is now environmental reductionism in the atheist humanists) and the idea that intelligence, creativity, and kindness are all uncorrelated. Furthermore, westerners HATE cute and beauty. They have underdeveloped amygdalas which results in "cute aggression" and they call everything moe Japan produces a "pedophilia" nature.
This cancer in embedded in the english language itself and everyone takes part in it. NEVER give an INCH to westerners they are zealots all of them, including the atheists and the vulgar harlots. The christians have NO power over this vulgarity because their religion itself is the cause; relative morality is the foundation of christianity and post-modernism has no hand to turn the other cheek to.
You are fucked in the head and I hope all of you post-christian ironic weebs get the israeli version of covid.
>> No. 1759 [Edit]
Is the Buddhist roots of Japanese morality not the slave morality you hate so much? Nietzche criticizes the ascetics as being no better than Judeo-Christian repressive slave morality in that the ascetic priest willingly represses his will to power, rejecting natural desires and sources of joy, to numb the emotions and to give meaning to life. This is done by occupying the mind with vast amounts of mindless work and a sense of "loving your neighbor" - a community of shared interest. This sounds a lot like the ideals Japan has, and if you had actually spent any time there instead of basing your knowledge of Japan on its cultural exports, you'd realize the reason anime is so morally different from western media is because it acts as a moral escape from the extremely repressive Japanese working life - no wonder there are millions of shut-ins unable to comply with these ideals, expending all of their time to that beautiful moral escape of Japanese media!

I'll agree with you for the most part, except for the idea of Japan being an exception to this. The specific moral values of Japan may be different, as you've identified it being untainted by Judeo-Christian ideals, but the morality it does have is equally as repressive. Perhaps they are simply more self-aware of this and have created an adequate escapist medium for sustainability.

Japan is even more consumerist than the US. The average American is a hedonist, consumerist, and has to work a lot to barely make it by and save a couple hundred a month for savings. Japan takes these and multiplies it.

Westerners don't hate cuteness. Both the US and Japan use tactics to psychologically influence people in a bad way. Japan uses the most text on TV out of any other country to keep people watching, youtubers adopted this. The US uses seх in almost every form of media. Both brainwash their people to pacify them and make them work a lot and spend what little they have on consumerist bs.

Where does the rumor that anime turns you into a tranny come from? Why do so many people think that?

Btw separate anon to thread progression over here...

You could be anything you wanted by the 80's. I think the difference is in you being told it's good for society. That you're gay or a furry or a MAP; it's positive. "Well if it's not bad for society and it's not hurting anybody, then I guess I'm a furry."

I don't think you're gay in having gay thoughts either. Latent homosexuality is born that way and can seldom help acting that way. You're just somebody who hasn't delineated for whatever reason between varieties of love e.g. Eros, philo, agape etc if you're in that sort of boat. Sometimes it's just immaturity. If the frequency of the thoughts is a daily occurrence, maybe you're gay, but then you could just have an Oxytocin addiction also and manifest that from the halo effect in a man's company.

Same goes for the anon below you - you're more likely autistic than homosex.

I think what is key here is community and not content. Otherwise we would dealing with a lot more trannies from the past. I just really can't believe that anime, in isolation, no matter how girly the content may be that it would convince someone that they are a female. They would need to have this idea from the start or peer pressured into them.

Though I do wonder, if some of the problem comes from the corruption of waifu culture. Like normalfags that just pick some random cute anime girl and call it a waifu. They then get/let themselves be reinforced into the idea that they must embody that form. Which in turn creates some sort of positive feedback loop from interacting with "anime" communities. And through this disingenuity of the relationship, you get the results in all bad traits you usually see in trannies.

The tranny problem is one more of social media or what eventually happens when human cattle interact especially when some bad actors are able to wheel and deal there shit onto the masses.

I commented this on a KYM article related to tomboys and got banned for being a "troll".

>Those in power want women to be weak and malleable, because if you control women, you control men. Part of that is undermining women who are actually strong, and capable(not the indoctrinated, danger hair types), i.e "masculine". "Conservatives" bully the adult ones for not being "feminine" enough. "Liberals" corrupt the young ones by telling them they're actually boys(destroying the possibility of a romantic relationship with "biological men"). It's a pincer attack.

I was following some links and ended up in a reddit where some women were talking about how Uranus and Neptune in Sailor Moon S woke them up to their lesbianism when they were teenagers, and that made me wonder, how much of homosexuality/transsexuality in the anime community is not just some form of chuunibyou that got out of control?

after having to spend some time around disabled people recently i can safely say i am pro-abortion. and you know what? why does it matter if theyre born or not, just kill them when theyre kids as well, hell, when theyre adults even. this topic troubles me, because beforehand i had thought i was pretty staunchly against murder, but when it comes to disabled people i find i dont give a shit. and well fuck it if were doing away with disabled people we might as well get rid of the blacks while were at it. no no, i mustve missed something somewhere, i just cant put my finger on it...

My stance is simple. I agree with both the Catholic, and the Satanist: Abortion is murder.
Predictably, I also agree with the Catholic on the matter of not permitting it.
>> No. 1756 [Edit]
It's murder. But murder can be an act of mercy. Ie. it's OK for getting rid of people with severe deformities/disablities, etc., but it shouldn't be used for silly reasons like it just being an unintended child (including rape).
I view some races (basketball devils, indians) as sub-human, though, and the word "murder" only applies for humans. Ie. I don't care if those races get abortions, and it should actually be beneficial.

This country is not only financially bankrupt but morally as well. This nation has become a den of depravity debauchery, greed, gluttony and degenerate behavior. Worst part is, people here actually take pride in it. It's a place where bad is good, where people think it's cool to be a trouble making hoodlum. A common saying is that rules are made to be broken. People here have no respect for anything, but of course they'll demand it all the same.

Meanwhile you have this wide spread hug box mentality where everyone is over sensitive and easily offended. you aren't allowed to be mean or say anything hurtful, question anyone's life styles, or really disapprove of anything. The modern day treatment of racism makes a complete mockery of everything people fought so hard for just decades ago. They call this the land of the free in spite of the fact it's economy was founded on black slave labor, the transit system and expansion was built on the backs of Chinese, meanwhile Americans systematically slaughtered the natives to the point of near extinction while destroying their culture and breaking their spirit, turning them into fat drunken drugged up wastes of human lives. Only to then oppress women too in the many years that followed. Land of the free my ass. Used to be racism meant segregated bathrooms or not allowing blacks into schools. Racism was refusing to hire or sell to someone based on their race. Now people call you racist if you ask someone their race, if you don't have x amount of colored people working for you, if you say "colored people" or even say "black people". They want you to say "African American" enough though many black people here have never been to Africa or have any ties to the continent. Used to be it was sexist to not allow women to vote or drive, now you get called sexist for telling a girl she looks good that day. They'll even call games sexist if the girls in them look cute and not fat/ugly like themselves. Just mistaking a person of one race for another will get you labeled as racist, as if to put you in the same boat as kkk members who burn crosses in front of people's homes.

People here are paranoid to insane degrees about anything that might harm their children and baby them to an extreme while banning everything in sight that so much

>Likewise yeah as people have said I'm a loser, I'm a loser by this socialites standards. I've never had a ticket or been to jail, never touched drugs or alcohol, I'm physically fit without so much as an allergy, I have more money in savings than 75% of Americans do with my only debt being a half paid off mortgage. I have a job I don't hate and I avoid steeling, lying, and cheating as best I can. But, I'm a fucking loser! Why is that? Because I don't like the environment I was forced to grow up in? Speaking my mind about it? That I stopped trying to keep offline friends after the ones I had repeatedly robbed and took advantage of me? Because I haven't had sex a dozen random loose women? or I have have no "team" and have no idea who won the last Superbowl? That I don't own the latest phone or drive a car with oversized rims? I don't give a shit about vbloggers, or whatever degenerate skank is the hottest trending """artist""" at the moment? Because I don't go out drinking or blaze up with the bros? Or is it that I like Chinese porn cartoons? If these things make me a loser, than I'll just be both a loser and a faggot in the eyes of people who's opinions mean absolutely nothing to me.
Honestly, these are actual truths about the average American ford drivers I've dealt with for pretty much my whole life so far.

According to my understanding, I think it's either baboons or chimpanzees for whom, when in heat, the genitalia of the females swells to an enormous size so I don't think the people who have the puffy vulva fetish are closeted gays. I think they're just more animalistic than normal. Just out of curiosity, has anyone here ever been aroused at the sight of a mare's genitalia? I know I have. It's like regular genitalia, but larger.

That's actually how they look on younger girls though, particularly 10-14(maybe later as well). I think it grows out of proportion to the hips and the hips catch up later.

In your own words; what makes women today unbearable?
29 posts and 3 images omitted. Click Reply to view.

Arguments about clothes are vain and I don't care very much.

What women have done is get together in New York circa 1848 and decide that they're going to be feminists, and that feminism entails that they're going to be just like men. In being identical to men, they're awarded responsibilities which they are bad at carrying, but refuse to delegate those responsibilities to anybody else even though they're not cut out for them, because they know those around them won't make them pay any accountability. This is also true for men. The difference is that men tend to self-regulate responsibility more, are held to it moreso, and don't latch onto it as though if they let go they'll be worthless and left for dead;- they were already held worthless from the start.

That's the problem. Women make such undesirable company because they're performing a drag act in which they all larp as men. If you got a Thai bride, she would still talk more than a Thai man. She would still use more deceit than a man. But you would not care half as much because she's behaviorally just doing woman things. I don't even care that western women have abandoned traditional beauty. But to have a nurturing element that manifests worse than mine is inexcusable.
>> No. 1728 [Edit]
I got an email from a woman peppered with exclamation points, and I thought "why the hell do they do this". Found an article about it, and as predicted, its explanation is that women are expected to as way of appearing friendly, and basically the patriarchy.

Colleges have more women, in a lot of places they get paid more, they get preferential legal treatment, and every mainstream piece of media puts them on a pedestal, but they STILL go on about that shit.

Anyway, that's not my expectation. I find it annoying and prefer people write like how I do. I don't want to be able to tell a woman wrote something just by reading it. I think that's the real reason why they do it, to communicate that they're a women, which is something they do subconsciously.

Well it's finally here and it's fucking gay. There were two main goals of animegate: to stop censorship of anime/otaku media before it starts, and to cleanse to otaku community of posers and ironic weebs. Both, so far, have not been successful.
Most of the people involved in this movement are posers and ironic weebs. Hell, I actually saw a tweet where these neckbeards, claiming to be a part of animegate, were defending this Stacy from "harassment". So basically, instead of kicking out posers, animegaters are encouraging them and it's fucking frustrating.
The only good thing coming out of this movement is that Vic Mignogna is receiving support after being falsely accused of rape. Other than that, this movement needs to get it's shit together.
I remember that tweet (or tweets rather). I remember everyone in the online community I was a part of, were PISSED and were saying that it was the beginning of the end. Shortly after that tweet, I began seeing normalfags use anime as a social statement by changing their yt icons to anime girls and posing with katanas. Then, anime ops and eds began to skyrocket in views. Where there used to be around one to two million turned into twelve to twenty million. Anime became the "cool kid thing" and it pissed every otaku off because these were the same kinds of people that would kick their ass in highschool for watching anime. And then, of course, this led to companies already beginning to try to sanitize anime to make it PC and easy to swallow.
We wouldn't have to have these online mobs or "gates" if we simply knew how to tell these posers to fuck off. The metal scene in the 80s did a pretty good job of it, see we need to learn from them.

It is? What is? before seeing this thread I don't think I'd have known something called "animegate" existed. In my eyes, not really much has changed lately, so how does this affect anyone side from those keeping close eyes on celebrity twitter accounts or what have you. I still have a real hard time believing anime is the "cool kid thing" now.

I think the only reason left-wing boycotts work is not because little green haired goblins start boycotting you, but because they get all the banks that provide financing to look at boycotting you. Cultures within those banks are all universal, and are all foregone concluded. The co-opting of our financial services is a success. I don't know what we are going to do now.

We hurt budweiser to the tune of a billion dollars income a year, but due to the nature of the corpo we picked all it means is that they will make 14 billion dollars instead of 15 billion dollars.

Anime companies are smaller and can be hurt worse, but ultimately you are not their paymasters; ultimately that job goes to the banks.

>Basically, people who call themselves lolicons even though they aren't pedophiles despite the fact that lolicon and shotacon mean pedophile in Japanese.
I would say the opinion of the Japanese on the "true" meaning of the word is irrelevant. Why assume the Japanese are the ultimate authority on what the word means? It's good to know how the Japanese see the word, but that's only when you're speaking to a Japanese person. Any word, can have any meaning. If a group of people are using it consistently, to convey a specific idea, then that's the meaning, for them. That's just how language works.

Also, what "is" an "ironic lolicon"?

Initially, I would assume an "ironic lolicon" was someone that enjoyed lolicon material, "ironically." They would do so, whilst looking down on it, and maintaining their self-awareness that it's actually bad.
I think the word "irony" here is being used weirdly though. It's more like "A guy that's ironically a lolicon" rather than "A guy that enjoys lolicon with a sense of irony".

And finally, I want to say that that image was confusing. Your post clearly describes the "ironic lolicon" as someone who calls themself a lolicon, despite not being a pedophile, and yet the image argues that the "ironic lolicon" is in fact, truly a pedophile! This was a bad post OP. Up until today, I've been confused every time I saw it.

Not bad, but, unpreferred I think. I think it can work when both parents, despite differing in race, have been raised in the same culture. But yeah, if there's even cultural differences, perhaps, as the wife takes the father's surname, and, as the wife converts to the husband's religion in mixed-religion marriages, perhaps the parents should agree that the children should conform to the father. Perhaps in religion if that's a factor, but definitely in culture. That's my main point.

But yeah, when two races mix, they kind of create a new race, one that doesn't really fit in anywhere. Racemixing will always certainly be the unpreferred option. Acceptable, but not preferred. At the very least, I would hope that those in a mixed-race marriage create many children, because, I think in some sad sense, the siblings only really have each other.
