You know what I don't understand? Why so many celebrities and politicians get caught sending unsolicited pictures of their junk ("dick pics" as the yunguns call it).
Like, who even does that? I understand the idea of sharing elicit photos with someone you like and who is interested, but to just send pictures of your dick to strangers who haven't asked and haven't shown an interest?
What is going through these people's minds when they think "I like this girl, but I don't know how to tell her that. I know, I'll send her a picture of my penis without asking. That'll do it!"
Has that ever worked for anyone? If it's worked for you, let me know. Because it just seems like such a weird thing to do.

Like, a few years ago, there was this kid who got stabbed over a girl he knew because he didn't want to share personal data to another dude who "was in love with her".
I mean, hey, you want to get with her, but her friend won't allow you so you murder that guy in cold blood so she'll understand how much you want to do for her.

A lot of people get mentally unstable, but even then, these people must have grown up with some form of conscience.

I think what happens is that the mental instability to do such things comes from the culmination of issues. Something just snaps, and they usually justify their actions to themselves so they don't feel as bad about it.
Crazy people very often don't know they are crazy. Or sometimes, refuse to admit to themselves that they are crazy. Otherwise they would say "I'm crazy. The way I think isn't normal. I need help."
One time, the Riddler tried to use his intellect to do a normal bank heist just for money, without and of his usual mind-games. But his compulsion to one-up Batman and prove he is smarter won out, and he left a clue for Batman to follow anyway. When Batman caught him, The Riddler realized that he wasn't right in the head and turned himself in willingly. He was in complete denial that he was nuts up until that point.

It's pretty much the same once the two make it anything official. Cuddling, sweet talking, pet names, bits of flirting, emotional support, and overall just being cutesy with one another. The main difference is that depending on the area, a gay couple may need to tone it down in public compared to a straight couple for fear of someone being an asshole about it.
The biggest difference would be what happens before
a relationship. Lots of self-doubt, confusion, questioning, etc. The unfortunate reality is that for a lot of gay people, the person they end up developing feelings for very well might not have a compatible orientation. If there's a friendship there ahead of time, it can cause a lot of anxiety because there's the fear that a confession of a crush or something more will drive that other person away.

Most people tend to try to not let such things bleed out to where others see it. Still, the point I was making is that besides the gender makeup, gay relationships are not dissimilar to straight ones in terms of the actions between those involved.

It's still more something that falls into relationships in general. Most forms of affection seem to be appreciated regardless of gender assuming it's something reciprocated in the first place. That's more what I was getting at.

Yes it is, but there's the extra layer of fear of social stigmatization with gay relationships. The one with the feelings may also not be out, and the one being confessed to might not have dealt with anything like that and not handle it properly. Worst case scenario is that the person turns out to be a homophobe, maliciously outs the other person and writes them off as a "freak," to use a word starting with "f" that still gets the point across.
Yeah shitty rejections that go out of hand can still happen to straight people but even that is… I guess more "normalized." Doesn't make those right, but there's one less layer to it, I suppose you could say.

I didn't mean to talk down. I was just trying to get you to confirm to make up for my untrustworthiness. I know you have more insight into these things than I do so I was trying to leech off of some of that authority.

"Gaydar" isn't a real thing. It's picking up on body language that someone may or may not be broadcasting. Picking up on those signs when they're being broadcast is a learned skill, even then it's not foolproof. Someone may be doing it unintentionally, perhaps just having a flirty yet platonic personality.
Then there are those who the only tipoff that they're gay/bisexual is that they want to date/fuck people of their own gender, and that's it.
Not having been in a relationship is also hardly an excuse. One is fully capable of understanding the breadth of human interaction without personally participating. >>561662
Your point was still good, and came from the right place. Nothing to put yourself down for.
Well, I can't tell if someone is gay, because I'm not gay. But I've heard that gay people can. I'll have to look for that study I saw.
But you have to have been in a relationship to know what being in a relationship entails. Otherwise you're just going off things you saw on TV and movies, which is what I have to do a lot of the time.

Even gay people cannot 100% tell if someone else is gay in any given context. Just like you cannot tell if someone is straight 100% of the time. Just like in straight relationships, it's a matter of probing to see if the other person is receptive to your advances or not. It's not some passive sense that people have. You can also pick up on it even if you aren't the one doing the probing if you're simply observant of the people around you.
No. You don't. You can pick up what you need to understand relationships just by observing relationships around you. In fact, simply understanding other people and developing one's own empathetic skills will make the other pieces fall into place. >>561679
It's just as easy to find something like that disproving it. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/speaking-of-science/wp/2015/09/08/new-study-finds-that-your-gaydar-is-terrible/
It's all in your own ability to use and read social cues. There's no sixth sense about it. Just because someone may match some aspects of what someone who is "gay" is supposed to be like does not make them so. Just because a man is effeminate does not preclude him from being an incredible womanizer, and just because a woman is gruff and tough side does not mean she doesn't want the D. You can also have someone who meets all the typical criteria of being "straight" but only has interest in romance of those of the same gender. >>561681
>>561686>just by observing relationships around you
All the relationships around me are dumpster fires…
And I wasn't saying that all straight or gay people meet a certain critera. I'm well aware a guy can be less than stereotypically masculine and straight. That's something I have to argue with people all the time. But at the same time maybe there's some other factor at play here beyond observable behavior we don't understand. Something like, I dunno, pheromones or some shit.

I'd certainly like to think so. >>561693>All the relationships around me are dumpster fires…
They are still relationships, and there is much to be learned from such things. Mostly along the lines of "what not to do." Observing these relationships has value that should not be ignored. Just as there are lessons within healthy relationships, and lessons in everything in between.
I hate to say just take my word for it, but in this case I have to. All cues are observable, some are incredibly subtle. Unless someone is the best actor in the world, those cues are also hard to control. People's body language is impulsive, even subconscious. Most people react to those cues without realizing that's what they're doing. It's not pheromones, or gaydar, or tapping into the subconscious. It's navigating the currents of social interaction. Everyone contributes to those currents, those who take the time to learn are able to more easily see where those currents are likely to lead, and some are even able to steer the currents to a degree with their own charisma.

>>561693>Something like, I dunno, pheromones or some shit.
That's actually a curious thing. I wonder if human pheromones change based on sexuality. I would assume not, but how cool would that be?
"What not to do" doesn't really help you know what you should do. There could be 100 wrong answers and only one right answer.
And like I said, I can't tell who's gay and who isn't at all.>>561700
if I'm not mistake, human pheromones is still something not much is known about.
File: 1502328775273.png (405.46 KB, 788x1024, 197:256, How terribly droll.png) ImgOps Google
Knowing what not to do is important, especially because there isn't one hundred wrong answers and one right answer. It's more like one hundred wrong answers and one hundred right answers. Those answers are gleaned from learning about and understanding the people involved.
Well I'll assure you it's not because you aren't gay. You don't need to be gay to learn the signs, you just need to take the time to do so.

Because they're too damn anxious that they want to skip straight to sex. They think that's what is wanted to be seen and will kick off the libido. Women do their own version sometimes. It's just as inappropriate.
Long and short of it is sending nudity pictures to someone without asking first is a dick move. Pun intended. Care should be taken ahead of time that the person is receptive as well. By and large, just don't.
Are you sure?
But yeah, its a good rule of thumb not to send naked pictures to someone without asking. I'd like it, because I'm single. But you could get someone in trouble.

Here's a tip, throw women into the all-encompassing "people" pile. Then you pick out a "person" from the larger people pile. If the person is interesting, get to know them, learn about them, learn from them. Some of those people will likely be women, who you know know and have hopefully grown to care about as a person and who they are,
not the body the person is in. You'll get a fuller picture of the reality of the world and the people in it.

One introduced me to the Hitcxhhiker's Guide of the Galaxy.

Then again, I've not been around gamer girls or comic book geeks. (the latter mostly because comic geeks in the American style aren't that much around here)

I guess, technically… But Game of
Thrones is debatable. In any case, I'm not into either of those things. Fantasy was never my genre, I like science fiction.

This whole fucking conversation is just you moving goal posts. Artee commented that there are girls into Harry Potter and Hitchhikers Guide and you said they aren't into GoT. I point out GoT fans and now it is something totally niche and irrelevant. It wouldn't be bothersome if I didn't know you were going to categorically dismiss everything you didn't already believe at the end of it. It's frankly quite exhausting to talk to you about and it is very hard to feel like you're acting in good faith.
I never said girls weren't into Game of Thrones. I said that I
wasn't into Game of Thrones. I think that's where the confusion lies.
Yep. So let's just back the conversation up a bit.
Artee knows girls in to Harry Potter and Game of Thrones. I'm not into any of those franchises. I'm into sci-fi more than fantasy. And then I wondered why more girls are into fantasy franchise.
Now you can come into the conversation at this point, or you can choose to not to. Up to you.

sexual harrasment and sexual assault is the same regardless of whether it's a man or a woman doing it.
to call sexual harrassment from a male bad, while calling it from a woman "a public service" you are promoting a horrible double standard that silences victims of harrasment from a woman, as well as enable female sexual harrassers.
while it's not as common as males sexual harassing others, it's not something you can just wave away

Manley. As in, under the age of consent.
Upon looking it up, 14 and 15 respectively.
It's the exact same crime as if a man were to manipulate two 14 and 15 year old girls into sex.

assuming the boys are underage, it's absolutely predatory behavior to groom children into sex acts with sexual pictures or conversations, etc. i'm actually kind of surprised you feel this way because you seem keen to men's issues oftentimes and the diminishing of male victims of sexual harassment is a really prevalent and shitty thing that society often says is OK because boys are stereotyped to be interested in sex no matter what, which is obviously an untrue and harmful belief that is the inverse of the "women should be sexually reserved and it is wrong for a women to be openly enthusiastic about sex"
i know many guys who were molested or sexually assaulted and the universal theme is feeling that their problems were laughed off because it's "weird" for a man to consider sexual advances "unwanted" by a woman, especially when the woman is considered attractive

i don't understand your point, a lot of adult predators are smart and know how to prey on kids and just because the kid is initially okay with it doesn't mean it's not an abusive relationship. oftentimes the child doesn't understand the relationship and fails to see the power imbalance when an adult knows how to groom and emotionally manipulate a child. a kid could very well be curious at some point and, from there, an abuser can remove the child's sense of agency by shaming them, threatening them, or otherwise hurting them in order to continue the abuse.
oftentimes its as simple as they don't think its a big deal, realize they're not comfortable with what is going on, and then the adult preys on normal child/teenager emotions like shame/embarassment/fear to shut down the child's agency to say no or retract consent
i don't really think puberty entails immediate mental development. i also think a misdemeanor is a very, very lax punishment for a variety of potentially horrifying acts>>562891
i don't think there always is, is a 15 year old is "scoring" with an adult who is preying on them due to their age and grooming them into a sexual relationship, i don't see the huge difference. sexual abuse on children doesn't have to equate to violent assault or the stereotypes in movies of this horrific struggle, that's kind of the whole point - the adult will make it seem normal and appropriate to the child, when we are discussing children or teenagers and the mental gap to adults in terms of their understanding, it's very hard for me to see many situations where i wouldn't consider a sexual relationship between a minor and an adult non-abusive
Well then, what about in countries where 15 is the age of consent? Shouldn't that sort of thing happen MORE there? I think we would have heard about wide-spread manipulation of kids by adults in those countries, but we don't.
Yeah, the potential for there to be an unhealthy dynamic is there, but it's not always going to be the case. Most 15 year olds ARE having sex, after all. There's not much anyone can do about that.

Hence why I mentioned I was
more judgemental. 15 year old me is more than a decade past. 15 year old me being surrounded by hormonal teenagers who seemingly thought of nothing else.
I saw how wrapped up into it they got, how they defined themselves by it. I didn't give a damn.
At some point after that I stopped being so judgemental and began trying to understand perspectives outside my own.
That I was
such a person is partially why I would disagree with your stance on a 12 year old being "mentally mature." They're not, they are children in a body that has begun
to develop. 18 as an age of consent has always seemed appropriate to me. There are less differences between an 18 year old and a 28 year old, compared to a 22 year old and a 12 year old. Both physically, and mentally. >>562921
Because it's not a thing I want to do.

This may shock you, but human sexuality is
complicated. There's all sorts of things wrapped up and pertinent to sex.
Here's what's not complicated. Someone in their 30s having sex with a 14 year old is emotionally abusive. Regardless of the genders involved. A 14 year old boy is not "scoring," he's being used.
There's an inherent imbalance in power in that situation that is not appropriate in the slightest. Because that older person makes them feel special, or important, or "so mature for your age." It's manipulative, simple as that.
Let's make a thought experiment. Will there be teenagers under the age of consent that attempt to flirt with an adult they find attractive? Sure, hormones hit hard and can cloud judgement. It is the responsibility
of the adult
to not just turn them down, but explain why what they're doing is inappropriate. To help that young person forward on the path to true emotional maturity which will aid them throughout the rest of their life.
File: 1502433905308.png (229.77 KB, 999x1024, 999:1024, You did what.png) ImgOps Google
There is far more likely that it would have done more harm than good. If anything, I think it would have made you more awkward in the long run due to further skewing your understanding of what sex is.
Sex isn't a magic spell. It's not tied to a switch that suddenly flips on that makes you not socially awkward. In fact, it can make things even more
I mean what I'm about to say sincerely. Stop
giving sex more importance than it's due. It's the relationship around the sex that will inform what sex means in that context. Fuck buddies? You're just having fun, just in it for the pleasurable sensations. One-night stand? Similar to fuck buddies, except you don't even have any intention to be friends. You're just mutually agreeing to using each other for a meaningless thing. Emotionally intimate? It can be a bonding mechanism. Manipulation or physical coercion? It's robbing someone of the right to control their own body.
Sex will not make your awkwardness vanish, Manley. Learning about other people, gaining understanding, and overcoming your hangups will.
To be perfectly blunt, you've already made progress on that. You just need to keep going.
I don't think it's me
giving sex "more importance than it's due". That's something society does on it's own. Why else would so many tv shows, movies, songs, video games and other such thing be based around this thing that I can't have and will probably never experience. You have to think about it as someone looking at it as a complete outsider. Why is everyone so obsessed with this thing if it's "not a big deal"?
I just feel like, I don't know, maybe my life would be different now. Maybe I'd have an easier time talking to girls, or more confidence in myself. You're right, it's possible I wouldn't, but at the same time, we'll never really know. But you have to realize that being a virgin at my age is seen as abnormal
by most people. The first question I always get is "Why?", like I'm some kind of abnormality. It's a difficult thing to deal with, but that's not something I'd expect someone who hasn't experienced it to understand.

Technically, I do think that's a point here.
I don't think a regular adult should enable a kid to have sex with him/her.
But prostitutes? Sex is just their business.

And I'd argue the prostitute should not be selling a 14 year old their services. You fucking ID that person or outright refuse them service. No different than alcohol or tobacco. >>563022
Because it sells. It makes money. You can absolutely choose whether or not you
give in to that societal pressure or not.
Again, it wouldn't make a difference. What would make a difference were if you had had some sort of romantic relationship, sex involved or not. If you just had some sticky, fumbling thing one night when you were in high school it wouldn't have changed much. > The first question I always get is "Why?", like I'm some kind of abnormality
There's the problem. You're basing your own sense of self-worth by how you're seen by other people rather than making it yourself. >>563025
This is also true.

Then you'll just have to take my word for it when I say that you letting being judged for being a virgin bother you means you're relying on the approval of others too much.
But if internal validation and resilience in the face of adversity isn't enough of an incentive, then perhaps that self-confidence is widely seen as and colloquially referred to as "Sexy as fuck," will.
That's not a phrase anyone would use to describe me. But yeah, it does bother me sometimes to be seen as some kind of freak. Can't really help that. But if I really "relied on the approval of others too much", then I'd have done something about this situation long ago. But I haven't, because finding someone who I like and who likes me back is more important than people who make fun of me.
But I feel like this conversation has gotten way too personal.

It just takes practice. Practice self-validation in tandem with self-reflection while doing so. Identify a flaw within yourself, and work to correct it.
Here, I'll even point you in a good starting direction. Start talking to women.
Just talk to them. Not for the end result of sex, or getting a girlfriend, just talk to 'em. Literally just talk to them. No strings attached. If a natural opportunity presents itself, take it. Just chat. Talk to her like you would speak to a man. Nice and chill. Don't be a creep about it or anything, but don't turn down the opportunity if it's there. Maybe you'll make a friend or two.

Because I fall into the category of people who approve of sex between consenting adults,
and I don't consider people under 18 to be adults. A 14 year old still has a lot of growing up to do, both physically and mentally. As long as the age and consent requirements are met, people should be free to do whatever with whoever.
18 isn't an age I'll budge on either. Just because there are places in the world where the age of consent is lower does not mean I approve. Teenage kids under that age are going to find ways around it if they want to, just as they get around things like drinking age. That doesn't make it something an adult
should facilitate, and especially not partake

Because 18 is the point where puberty either already has, or is wrapping up. Some people finish earlier, some people finish later, but it's the point where the physical changes that were going to happen are done in almost everyone. There's some minor changes that happen past that point into the early twenties, but they're much less drastic than what happens during puberty.
Simply having reached
puberty and being in the middle of it is not good enough.

Why not 17 then? According to Wikipedia, "On average, girls begin puberty around ages 10–11 and end puberty around 15-17; boys begin around ages 11–12 and end around 16-17." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puberty

Because I see no reason to try and give the age of consent rights to someone the instant
that someone finishes puberty. 18 is plenty soon after the effects of puberty have likely run their course. Furthermore, 18 also typically the age someone finishes high school around, marking a social shift into adulthood. It's also the point where many other things become legal for people, so I see zero problem in keeping age of consent at that same age mark.

I think that's the wrong way to think about it. If you're going to convict and imprison someone for rape, I think you should be damn sure that the alleged victim really didn't consent. If you say something like "Well, the alleged victim likely was mature enough to consent, but we're going to throw you in jail for rape anyway because it's administratively easier that way", I mean that just seems a bit wrong to me.

A difference is that /ef/ doesn't allow porn (unless behind NSFW spoiler), and doesn't allow loli porn at all, but does allow pony. Also /ef/ is much slower than /b/. Also Steam Twist managed to get himself banned from /ef/ for spamming and posting disgusting inflation porn.

He's shitting up /luna/ at the moment. He finally weighed himself though:>Height: 66 inches>Weight: 240 pounds
Even with very generous assumptions about his muscle mass, that puts him firmly in the "overweight" category, right on the edge of "obese": http://www.getchan.net/luna/res/101863.html#102047
Also he is still ranting about how the entire country of America is responsible for some random nutcase shooting up a place, and then he rages hard when it's pointed that he is an American himself. http://www.getchan.net/luna/res/102154.html
Also he still puts sage in his """holy water""" and drinks it.

Also, what do you
think the age of consent should be?
We tried for months to get him to be less crazy, I'm not surprised he still is. >>563571
I don't think it should be lower than 16.

>>563736>I'm pretty sure talking about him on here is not allowed.
Then why are you talking about him on here? :^)
Anyhow, I just checked the rules, and it's not disallowed.

>>563583>I don't think it should be lower than 16.
But earlier in this thread, you were implying that a 15-year-old boy would be lucky to score with an adult woman (>>562891
). But now you're saying that it would be rape?

But that's not the issue. The issue is whether a 15-year-old has the capacity
to consent to have sex. If a 15-year-old boy has sex with an 16-year-old girl, do you think that the boy was automatically raped due to his age?
No, but that's why Romeo and Juliet laws exist. We were talking about an adult

How does a 15-year-old have the capacity to consent to have sex with 16-year-old but not have the capacity to consent to have sex with a 21-year-old? I don't see how that is possible.
Chrome already explained that to you days ago.>>562988>>There's an inherent imbalance in power in that situation that is not appropriate in the slightest. Because that older person makes them feel special, or important, or "so mature for your age." It's manipulative, simple as that.
At this point you're intentionally being obtuse and making yourself look like a pedophile in the process.

Suppose a 15-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl meet a party and decide to have sex with each other that night. Not rape, right? Now let's keep everything the same except replace the 16-year-old with a 21-year-old. How does that make the 15-year-old lose his capacity to consent to have sex? I don't see any imbalance of power in this situation.
