I think women have life much easier than men do. They do have a couple of things harder than men do but their difficulties don't outweigh the things that come easy for them.

I don't know how popular or unpopular this opinion is but I think that it's not wrong to stop kids from being bullied because I feel like kids getting bullied is what can lead to school shootings in the first place if it doesn't lead to them growing up severely crippled in some way be it in terms of emotional competence or lack of self-esteem. I read a study once about hardship actually making it harder for you to deal with problems the future brings but I don't have the exact source in which case this one may have to do:
This is relevant to what I'm talking about because they might not have been able to deal with those things in the past and then they get denied self-esteem and inner strength at a time when it most needed to develop. They are essentially cut off from a vital resource early on in their life and as they go on it becomes harder for them to get that resource.
Sometimes the child does not go on to become miserable but instead becomes violent, in certain cases this violence is controlled or it is not. Some strive to learn how to fight and have their anger directed, this is a case of "getting stronger" but other times their anger is uncontrolled for various reasons. Those could be what cause some kids to lash out at everybody in that school. For these kids imagine this scenario: a man keeps kicking a dog he found at one point. The dog, usually calm, wants the man to stop but finds no way to do so by any other means than violence so he bites the man. I would imagine it is the same way for humans. "Asking doesn't work? Use force."

Frozen yogurt is better than ice cream. It's not as unhealthy and the texture is smoother and softer. The only problem is the price but it tastes so good.

I don't like chocolate ice cream, it leaves a bad aftertaste all the time and for much of my childhood I preferred vanilla over chocolate. Also I didn't like strawberry because there were always strawberry bits in there and I don't like the texture.

Comedy is dying. Memes are becoming increasingly common, are very effective, and seem like a much better alternative to having to make up your own jokes and actually be clever until you pay attention to the fact that it really is just the same joke over and over sometimes done differently but it's all way too similar to other instances of it that it's not worth calling it a joke, not in my opinion. I don't know if comedians are using it now but I dread the day when they do.

I like music without lyrics better, I think it allows the imagination to wander and can be good for promoting creativity.

I know it isn't unpopular here on TC but I do think 2D women look better than 3D women. Aside from the face usually looking prettier, they don't have to wear makeup for any reason and actually look worse with it on, their faces are usually perfectly proportional, and their bodies don't have wrinkles up until a much later age. Older women still look good later on in 2D.

Also I just think makeup makes women look uglier altogether, it looks so artificial and ugly to see unnatural colors on people's faces and drawn on eyebrows with eyelashes that look like they double as fans. Moderation, dang it.

That's all of the unpopular opinions I can think of for now. I don't know how many of these are unpopular because I don't get out much anymore and haven't for a while.

anime > western animation excluding feature films.
People like to bash on anime endlessly but it's at least nice to look at while some cartoons don't even do that.Anime has a lot of worn out tropes but it's not like cartoons are never guilty of this either and to bash on one thing for it's flaws while what you're pretending is superior has the same flaws and even more is just silliness.

I think just about anyone who has actually bothered to give anime a chance knows this to be true. Why else would so much anime be creeping into western media? Western made animation mostly comes in three flavors. capshit, poorly drawn low brow """adult""" comedies, and even more poorly drawn mindless kids garbage. I'm not a fan of capshit cartoons, but at least they seem to put in 'some' effort into the art and animation of those.
It's decent reflection of American culture where in most everything is crude and ugly but over bloated and convinced of it's (misplaced) superiority, there's very little creativity and even less originality. Meanwhile the only fields it excels at is excessive strength and power.
But no one really respects the medium so that's the best you can hope for. Meanwhile anime has a large range of genres from light hearted to soul crushing stories. Art that can range from crude and ugly, to stunning and beautiful.
As far as I know they don't even make cartoons anymore. Last I saw and heard it was almost nothing but 3dcgi now with just a few long running exceptions.

Loss of life isn't inherently bad, it only depends on the situation. Also, human life is not inherently important and can only matter from the subjective viewpoint of people who care about specific individuals that they know. It seems pretty obvious to me but so many people have this idea that life is the main priority of all humans, regardless of the quality of their life or whatever other factors may come in to play.

Settling is a behavior that should be actively discouraged. If everyone learned to be happy with what they had, then no one would ever try to change or improve anything and the interesting things in the world like technology and knowledge would stagnant and be ruined.

I think there's a balance that needs to be found but I come from the opposite perspective as for how hard society should push their people. I dislike how strongly pushed the sentiment of "follow your dream" is. Especially regarding art. I dislike the push that your job is your identity and not having a concrete single aspiration and fulfilling it is treated like something morally wrong. My ambition is art. Not because the world needs art but because no matter how hard I tried I couldnt keep up. I was a shitty student but I was better than average at art so I thought pursuing that was the best chance I had at being better than average at anything. At being able to give back anything to society. It was all I had. So I've spent a lot of my early adulthood in self loathing because I couldn't make it. All I had. All I was. I tried my hardest and I wasnt good enough so I had this general life feeling of being a morally corrupt person because I was born myself and couldnt overcome that. Now sure these problems are more from how mush you pressure that ambition yeah? But it's only during my summer break that I realized how much better my life is as a neet. What it feels like to study out of genuine curiosity. To detox from all the adderal and sleeping pills I relied on to have a chance at being worth shit. To have the time to start doing exercise, doing art projects I actually care about, becoming informed about the world. My goal has simply become finding a decent job I dont have to work a lot to support that lifestyle and slowly keep working at improving it at my own pace. Since I become more productive in my free time this doesnt sound too much like a disagreement except it means accepting that Im never going to hit it big. It means finding a life style I can be generally "content" with. Personally I think drive doesnt need to be enforced by a culture because generally the desire to help and improve is an inherent human quality to most people. It's when we push ambition for the sake of ambition that we've started working just to justify our existence and our reasons for working become so muddy were not actually doing anything but putting effort into hurting ourselves.
Now this is just projection out of a desire to relate to your viewpoint so correct me if Im wrong, but you sound like your perspective is of someone who defaults to doing nothing when they have free time but it makes you depressed and self loathing so you have to push yourself with self imposed obligations to give your life meaning. Therefore it is for every individuals own benefit that a society should discourage complacency.
I come from a perspective of continuously setting my ambitions too high, failing, pushing myself towards self destructive acts, bitterness towards everyone and contemplating suicide. All necause Im scared I'll only be some "normie". Because growing up and finding an average job and living an average life is "pitiful". It would mean I'm not the "main character". But life has only felt worth living once I gradually started forgiving myself and seeing value in the possibility I could one day "settle down". Life has inherent value. As you long as you're being a good person and take care of yourself a person should be allowed to savor their life and achievements.
I could go on a lot about this sort of thing because even though there needs to be a balance as not to spoil our culture, I strongly believe there is way too much shame put in a making a modest living. I get scared when I think of how easy it is for a large organizations to manipulate ambition for the sake of ambition to make wage slaves and soldiers until it becomes the norm and we expect it of people to prove their worth through them.
Continuous ambition is an important part of the human spirit but I believe most people carry that enough that enforcing it too strictly into our culture only serves to break all drive more often than achieving greatness.

I feel like I'm probably the only anime fan out there who dislikes Shaft. It seems like it's cool to hate on DEEN for making a few mediocre anime, or kyoani just for making 'Free' when people used to treat them like the kings of anime. On the other hand everyone seems to love Shaft and will defend them to the death as a studio that can do no wrong. I usually 'try' to avoid expressing any negative opinions about the studio because it usually leads to arguments but that's what this thread is for right?
While I admit I have enjoyed some of their stuff in the past, and they've got some undeniably good music, fact remains I hate two of their biggest franchises, they ruined one of my favorite anime by proxy, and I find their edgy punk goth whatever style obnoxious. Maybe if I was still in my own edgy 16 year old phrase I might like them more, I don't know. They seem to love incorporating cut outs of real world objects in most of their anime, and I think it looks ugly when they do. Not a fan of the power point text play stuff either, or lazy set designs passed off as intentionally minimalistic. Akiyuki Shinbou's style can be extremely hit or miss (Cossette no Shouzou for example was frustrating to sit through due to it's obnoxious style of animation, while Gen Urobuchi meanwhile is someone who's work I rather avoid since he seems to be a one trick pony who's trick is one I don't particularly like in the first place, both of them being key elements of Shaft.

They started out as a very poor animation studio.
Their style reflects their roots, of minimalism by necessity (from being poor), which also reflects, in part, Japanese aestetics as a whole (id est: wabi-sabi).

KyoAni fans were never fans of Shaft, and vice versa. They are opposite ends of the spectrum.
>> No. 440 [Edit]
I think the problems are your personal outlook and where you're looking validation of your opinions. Hating KyoAni for making Free is just retarded because you can just not watch it and the issue is over. Hating Deen for some anime considered a disservice to their source material is more warranted, but still, as a studio they have dozens of classics and have participate on dozens more. Their positives vastly outweight whatever negatives. So hating on the studio itself is childish (in these cases, at least).
>On the other hand everyone seems to love Shaft
You wouldn't know if you look online. Lots of people hate Shaft for the same type of things that are relegated to subjective tastes.
>they ruined one of my favorite anime by proxy
That's on you, not them. If they release an anime series that ruined another (I assume disconnected) just because of your feelings, then they're not the ones to blame. If they ruined one of your favourite anime because retroactively changed something important about it (e.g. a sequel) then that's different, but you mentioned it being by proxy.
>I find their edgy punk goth whatever style obnoxious
>Maybe if I was still in my own edgy 16 year old phase
You're allowed to dislike Shaft and call out their flaws if you give relatively objective criticism like you just did (e.g. "incorporating cut outs of real world objects") but then you devalue your exposed opinion by adding things like the quoted sentence which is immature because you're assuming you need to be edgy and young to enjoy one or another art style. The first step to end silly "Studio Wars" is to acknowledge people have different tastes -and- that there are things that can be regarded as objectively bad regardless of whether people like it or not, like bad writing, pacing, edition, animation, etc.
>while Gen Urobuchi
>key elements of Shaft
What do you mean? Urobutcher has only done one series with Shaft. He has not been involved in anything with them besides Madoka.
>KyoAni fans were never fans of Shaft, and vice versa. They are opposite ends of the spectrum.
Speak for yourself. I like both studios and have enjoyed everything I've seen from both, and so does a lot of people. Very few (vocal) people are engaged in these moronic studio pissing contests.
>> No. 443 [Edit]
I'm sorry if not knowing the proper term for that style of theirs came across like an insult. I'm also sorry if I blurred the line between subjective personal opinions and objective criticism. That wasn't my intention. I really don't know what you would call the style they so often use as someone who has little interest in anything like it. punk/emo/goth is honestly the closest I can come up with. If you know a more appropriate (and less offensive?) term, I'm all ears.
I assumed from my first sentence it would be clear I knew this was only my own personal unpopular opinion. That I realize people like Shaft and their style, but that it's not for me. I'm not telling people to boycott them or telling you you shouldn't enjoy their works, or anything of that sort. I'm just saying I don't like them and why I don't like them. Much like the minimalistic style I mentioned which I know is very popular these days but that is not for me. The point was also that no one cares if you have a negative opinion about any other studio, but if you don't like Shaft people will be all over you about it. As shown for example by the relatively fast responses that post got on a partly hidden board on a half dead site. -not that there's anything wrong with that.- Just an observation. But again, sorry if that's wrong. I don't really hang out on other imageboards much so I wouldn't know if this wasn't actually true. Just the impression I got.

>you're assuming you need to be edgy and young to enjoy one or another art style.
Not at all. I realize people of all ages in a range of demographics like their works, I'm just saying that if I myself was still that age I might have liked their works better.

>That's on you, not them.
Yup, I'm well aware of that.

>What do you mean?
My mistake, I thought he had more of a hand in their works.

I think you misunderstood my post as a defence against your views. I wrote it in regards to the OP text. You mentioned that you feel like you're alone in disliking Shaft. My post is about why most people would agree with you (in disliking shaft), and why people would not get upset if you revealed how you feel about such Studio. The issue is the crowd, hence "where you're looking validation of your opinions". Reasonable people who like Shaft will understand if you don't like Shaft because of art style choices, but reasonable people will also roll their eyes when you expose your opinion in a way that is deriding, because it would make them think (perhaps unjustly) that it's likely your observations are shallow, otherwise you'd have gone through enough reflection of the flaws you found to properly explain what bothers you.

No need to be so apologetic either. The disclaimer makes me feel like I made a mistake in replying because I ended up hurting your feelings or made you feel attack, despite that you chose to write this in /tat/ instead of /an/. You'd make it worse if you address this paragraph, so I hope you won't.

Madoka Magica is unredeemable trash and only got popular for its shock factor, for someone who watched it outside of its original airing period while knowing that it was going to take a "dark" turn there is nothing interesting about it since the story is badly paced and the characters are boring and hard to care about. Steins;Gate is mediocre and extremely overrated.

Homosexuality is a mental disorder and we may had have found some form of therapy to cure it if it wasn't for the forced social acceptance of it, similar to what we're seeing happen with gender dysphoria at the present date.

Humans are morally obliged to commit genocide if a certain etnic group is unable to archieve anything but destroying the hard work of all other groups of people.
As the population of Africa will reach 3 billion in this half of the century alone and they do nothing but procreate while living off donations of other people and are quick to illegally immigrate to western countries where they fall into crime, the only option to fix the future problems they will cause is to at least end the donations so nature can do its thing and a large chunk of the population will starve off until they are in the hundreds or thousands at best which is how its supposed to be given the shitty climate of their continent.
Jews on the other hand should actually be killed off with violence, even when they manage to archieve impressive feats in academic fields such as physics they always use their status, money and in some cases their own creations to cause further suffering on all non-jewish people as they have done since the destruction of the second temple.

>Homosexuality is a mental disorder
I was originally vehemently against homosexuality on a "they need to disappear" mindset, but then I turned around when I saw enough scientific research. Since almost a year ago, after seeing how poorly done most research is, and how much preference agenda-aligning research is focused on I feel it's an abnormality that should be permitted as long as it doesn't encroach into education and society as a crutch. Apparently, though, the overwhelming vocal majority of homosexuals and allies seem to be hell-bent on infecting society from its most shallow to its most profound parts with their now-manifested corruptive ideology. I'm sure there are decent, (comparatively) moral gays out there, but they might as well be a drop of water in this current sea of depravity.

I watched it out of it's airing period as well but I liked it.
It goes into things like the Red String of Fate and Eternal Recursion.
>> No. 473 [Edit]
Aside from cultural acceptance and agendas, I think the current state of western women has pushed more men to homosexuality. It's especially noticeable in the anime scene where women are in short supply and the ones who are available are revolting whorish ham beasts. Meanwhile many males in the scene are happy to become "traps" who look and act more feminine than your average women ever would, while also talking part in activities modern women find demeaning and offensive such as cooking and cleaning. I've known a few online buddies personally who turned bisexual or gay, and I suspect traps/3DPD to be what pushed them over the edge.
>> No. 474 [Edit]
Saw both Madoka and Steins;Gate way outside of their airing period as well, while being very biased against the former (due to a lot of people telling me it was awful + seeing a lot of disgusting individuals online having it as a favourite anime) and very biased in favour of the latter (one of the favourite anime of someone who help me get fully leave my anime hiatus period behind). I thought bought were masterpieces in different ways. I can acknowledge that what Madoka did right, it did it flawlessly, and what it did wrong, were minor issues for me (character development pacing and shock value); I didn't actually liked nor enjoyed Madoka particularly and probably won't watch it ever again, but I'm "grateful" to it for teaching me to never pre-judge an anime based on its fan base. Steins;Gate on the other hand is one of my favourites, but I do see how and why people deem it overrated, but I thoroughly disagree.
>I think the current state of western women has pushed more men to homosexuality.
I don't think that's true per se as a baseline as much as agenda pushing homosexuality as a healthier lifestyle (e.g. "No drama, bro!") while homosexual couples have a vastly higher percentage of physical, sexual and emotional abuse. I think it's mainly an issue of attention and loneliness, where attention-starved people with low self-esteem, lack of experience and/or knowledge, and histrionic personalities seek whatever will make them feel comfortable, at which point what you mentioned becomes partly true (gay men, desperate by nature, will invariably seem like more approachable targets). I think it's likely another cause is broken homes, single motherhood, and lack of male role models.
>It's especially noticeable in the anime scene
I think that has more to do with the medium rather than the whole. Anime is a (not as much anymore) niche community, and a lot of women (and men) gravitate to it for attention, the same way with any other medium. But, because this niche tends to be filled with less sociable people, it seems like a safer, less-judgemental, and maybe even more economical option than other venues like trying to be a sports fan or go into physical hobbies like vehicles, travelling, hiking, etc. Therefore, the type of women and men (outside of the ones with a legitimate and honest interest in anime) that will be commonplace will, imho, be most likely the ones that failed miserably at the default paths, and will put themselves in a positions where they can maximize the attention and benefits they get from others, hence why a lot of "nerdy" women and (like you mentioned) "traps" will virtue signal and quickly adapt to whatever is currently popular at an impressive degree.

Have you noticed how most people that unexpectedly (or suddenly) became gay, bisexual, transgender, etc. tend to seem irreparably damaged? At least since 2010s, I've never met someone online who had an alternate sexuality who was also not basically broken and/or dead inside.
>> No. 478 [Edit]
It does seem like the increased faggotry in the western world is a reaction to men just not being able to keep up with modern women. Have you ever heard about the mouse utopia experiment? I recommend you reading a bit about it, the mouses were forced to live in a "society" which reflected that of ours and both males and females gradually became homosexual due to the risks that were attached to mating with mouses of the opposite sex simply not being worth it in their eyes.
Could you perhaps explain why you think Steins;Gate is so great in your opinion? I have only seen praise online for it so far and have never seen anyone really criticise it so I really feel alone in disliking it strongly. Here's my stance on it:
One of the main issues with the show to me is the characters, who are insanely annoying. The MC behaves like a chuuni and while it was probably the writer's intention to make him come off as an eccentric "geek", it really just made it painful to watch any scene with him in it. His behaviour was quite unrealistic for someone his age.
Another main issue is that while I did like the second half, the first half was quite boring and it had nothing in it to make me keep watching. The only reason why I kept watching those first episodes was because it was Steins;Gate, it's famous and I wanted to see why the hell people liked it so much but the show itself had nothing going for it. I have seen the first episode serveral times yet I dropped it constantly half the way through because it was just difficult to get through it.
Then there was the ending which seemed badly paced to me, I would have preferred if the whole ordeal with Kurisu had been given a few more episodes.
While many online claim it to be one of the, if not, the best sci-fi anime of all time, in truth it's really just a bad harem show which tries to come off as deep by using somewhat obscure scientific terms which the writer had probably read a few google search results of and barely understood himself.
>> No. 479 [Edit]
>men just not being able to keep up with modern women
Men are perfectly able to, just unwilling. Marriages and families are very much still commonplace, it's just that entertainment and access to it has made life much more fun and comfortable than it has ever been, so socialization and its annoying micromanagement mini-games are taking a back seat.
>have never seen anyone really criticise it so I really feel alone
I'll assume you don't frequent any other imageboards because tons of people think S;G is overrated and cliched, specially women who argue the whole scenario is built with the basis of dating sim (which I don't fully disagree with).
>The MC behaves like a chuuni
This is explained in the series. [SPOILERS]Okabe acts as a eccentric mad scientist for the sake of Mayuri, who is stated and shown to be depressive due to her childhood trauma(s), and as a deterrent of her (apparent) potential suicidal tendencies.
>His behaviour was quite unrealistic for someone his age.
Now I'll assume you connect to the internet on a 32 kbit/sec modem from a remote 1-person island because I can't believe you have never met anyone over 18 (Okabe's age in S;G) who acts like a weirdo or even role plays for fun, specially online, where it seems people that act that way are practically in every single online community. And it's not just men.
>it was just difficult to get through it.
You're allowed to dislike what others seem to enjoy. If it's not for you, that's the end of it. I don't get sports / e-sports / space operas fandom and find them boring and lame, yet a massive amount of people love these, and that's fine.
>many online claim it to be one of the, if not, the best sci-fi anime of all time
More than sci-fi, it's the anime (or even just media in general) that has used time travel with the most respect to the physics and (relatively) realistic consequences, by far. So people that prefer hard science fiction rather than its mixed genres (adventure, space opera, mecha, cyberpunk, etc.) end up finding something that can't be seen anywhere else, specially when it aired. Now there are a few things that have done it similarly.
>by using somewhat obscure scientific terms
I'll make one last assumption and believe you are not acquainted with neither science fiction in general, nor an avid reader of technological advances outside of end users, specially since 1995, regarding computing and physics. Otherwise, you wouldn't make such a tiresome and ignorant comment. No offence meant.

To sum it up, you seem to hate on an anime that apparently was obviously not made for neither your interests nor your sensibilities (feel free to correct me), and if so, then there's nothing wrong with disliking it. But there's a difference between saying "I didn't like S;G" and "S;G is absolute overrated garbage" because there are dozens, if not hundreds, of walls of texts and essays deconstructing the entirety of the show and why it's deemed so good, all of which you can easily find by googling, if you're really interested in learning about what the series did right, rather than validating your opinion.
>> No. 480 [Edit]
>Men are perfectly able to, just unwilling
Yeah because they don't want to risk getting divorced and then being forced to pay alimentation for the rest of their life while lonely and poor and being played off as the "bad guy" by their mother to their children. Which is pretty much the same as not being able to because why the hell would you want to live like that? It's just not worth it.
That one scene where he talks about her being a hostage doesn't really excuse all the other retarded behaviour nor is it really a proper explanation since it's only shown once and never brought up again.
>I can't believe you have never met anyone over 18 (Okabe's age in S;G) who acts like a weirdo or even role plays for fun
I'm glad I haven't. If you're one of these people then you're sadly my first annoying encounter with this sort of person.
>And it's not just men
Why are you so obsessed with mentioning the differences between men and women? This is the third time in your post already, keep the subject to anime please. I'd like to keep identity politics and hobbies seperated.
>it's the anime (or even just media in general) that has used time travel with the most respect to the physics and (relatively) realistic consequences
That's just because there barely exist any anime about time travel. When there's barely anything to compare it to it's easy to say it's the best one. When you stop looking at it from a comparison angle and just see it as it is though you'll realise that it's really not that realistic. I mean, the trap guy becoming a woman has no influence at all on them becoming friends when him being a trap was an essential part of their first interaction? They didn't even bother changing his/her memories of this first encounter, it's just exactly the same. It's also never explained why some characters still have their memories of other timelines while other don't and why some remember things more clearly, it just convenient for the writer.
>Otherwise, you wouldn't make such a tiresome and ignorant comment
Aaaand thanks for proving you're extremely biased and can't look at this from another perspective nor can you properly refute any of my points, you don't at all explain why I was wrong at that last point, you're just going straight for the ad hominem.

>nor is it really a proper explanation
Hmmm, maybe it's a language barrier thing or lack of attention. It seemed crystal clear to me why he acts the part of a mad scientiest.
>keep the subject to anime please
I was talking about anime, which I assume you have watched practically none of, at this point, if you have never encountered this stereotype.
>If you're one of these people
I'd say you'd qualify if you're the same anon who puts quotes when replying to others, like in that political stance thread.
>It's also never explained why some characters still have their memories of other timelines
They explained it several times. No wonder you can't see past your vitriol if you don't even pay attention. Unsurprising though.
>you're just going straight for the ad hominem
I didn't insult you though. An opinion can be ignorant and tiresome without the commenter being so overall. The irony is that you proved yourself to be the very same thing you described: extremely biased and obtuse. Why would I write a detailed sequence of posts to explain you the series, when you'll end up replying whatever you deem convenient to keep your position, specially when you can easily find that information already written online? You want me to spoonfeed you for no other purpose that to appeal to your own ego. And I never said you were wrong, because what you like or not is subjective based on your own personality and experience. Moreover, I even emphasized that there wasn't anything wrong with you disliking the series, but at this point you're just reading what you want to fabricate an excuse not to move from your standing.

I'm against divorce.
Even if it might be for the "best" of both parties.
Even if it's an abusive relationship.
I don't believe that divorce is an answer. It's just running away, and it kill all the good things that might come out of marriage.

Marriage is a bounding for eternity, or at least for the rest of your life. Like life, it is doomed to have very harsh and dark times. Some things will be irreversible. You can't undo all the bad things that happened to you, nor could you undo all the bad things within a marriage. You can't runaway from your life, why should you be able to runaway from your marriage ?

I get their are special situations and exceptions. I get all of that. But I still hold my point.
Even my parents divorced, and I have a horrible relationship with my dad, to the point that I am closer to my step-dad. I completely understand my mom's reasons for divorce, and respect them. It even looks I am better off with my parents divorced. But still, I (or anyone) can predict what would have happened if there wasn't a divorce, how things would have evolved.

My unpopular opinion: /tat/, /lol/, and /mp3/ should be combined to increase the chances of users coming into contact with one another, and replying to each other.

also, fuck England. Gott strafe.
>> No. 487 [Edit]
That's an odd combo. I can see /tat/ and /lol/ together for a general shitposting board, but why /mp3/?
>> No. 499 [Edit]
No reason, really. I was just sabotaging my point with stupid humor.

>the current state of western women has pushed more men to homosexuality.
The current state of western women has pushed more men to reclusiveness seems more correct to me.

It might be part of it for feminine men, perhaps some porn fetishes helps self-indoctrinate themselves to lean more that way and traps in anime doesn't help either. From what I've read I think it's more the effect of declining testosterone (around the world but more so in western countries) and increasing estrogen which makes them born gay e.g. gay brains are similarly shaped as females instead of straight males. Something should be done about this.

Picture related can be opened as archive, it has the two books shown on the image.

There's no such thing as being gay. People of the same sex who love each other confuse romantic love with platonic love, the latter of which is perfectly normal. Attraction to the same sex is a product of extreme perversion, which is separate.
>> No. 518 [Edit]
I fully agree with you, except on the "extreme perversion". I believer that to qualify as depraved, you have to be conscious of what you're doing being morally wrong, yet I have noticed (specially in the last 3-4 years) that there's a lot of brainwashing agenda going on trying to "convert" people into it by normalizing it in all forms as an ideal lifestyle. Point being that for some people, being gay is just "all they know" and get out of that prison without help. I guess the same rings true for all outcomes of degeneracy in general.
>> No. 528 [Edit]
Yeah, I suppose that's possible considering something like "affluenza" is a term that exists as well.

Fahrenheit is a better measurement of temperature, in any use outside of scientific fields/math/etc. or where anything needs precise measurement. For regular use when describing weather or temperatures that don't have to be precise or specific, fahrenheit is best. It happens to be in a perfect range (0-100) of almost all temperatures we have to deal with on a daily basis and makes sense particularly with weather. I don't care as much about the other units of measure, but I do like fahrenheit.
>> No. 537 [Edit]
I couldn't disagree more, it's a dumb, obsolete and outright useless measurement. Celsius makes perfect sense: At 0°C water freezes at average pressure and at 100°C it boils. You just think that way because you use it. Literally everyone else in the world except for literal-shithole Liberia regards it as pointless.

1. I believe that all life should stop reproducing, including animals and insects
2. I have a favorable view of North Korea
3. Not all cults are inherently bad
4. The South should have won the American Civil war

That's all I can think of for now. Feel free to respond, I like discussion.
>> No. 633 [Edit]
Why? To all of this.
>> No. 645 [Edit]
I don't think either of these are controversial or unpopular when proposed in the country which uses said system.

Now, have someone in France argue with other Frenchmen that pounds and Fahrenheit are the better standard, and then we have an unpopular opinion.

The conception of a globalist, uniformed, omnipotent, clandestine organization or movement against the things you and/or your loved ones value or hold dear is a fiction, which only appears obvious due to a simplification of the end result of a myriad of interconnected power structures, most of which are completely indifferent to you or what you stand for if it does not translate into profit/power for them, or work against their profit/power.

Whenever I've bothered to dig into the motivations, inspirations, and mentalities of those who push for stuff against my interests, it is usually the case that there are a myriad institutions with differing goals and ideals, which may be competing with one another, or operating at different levels of organization, who end up countering my wishes or ideals to achieve their institution's internal goals. They're only synchronous so far as human nature results in predictable responses to certain situations and stimuli.

The main argument poltards have is that the behavior of Jews is different and results in a predictable negative outcome for them. Some think it's supernatural, while others think it's genetic. There isn't any empirical evidence to suggest this is true. Nobody has done a behavioral genetic analysis of Jews.
