so i just received a print with a single layer of foam board as backing...and it was perfect. do you guys ship with double board (if shipping flat?)
i ship with double board because i get anxious about protection (and will probably continue to do so) but wondering what the mishap rate is for prints that are sent with just one backing board...(i use cardboard instead of foam)
>>
>>10608963
I ship paper goods in double chipboard because doubling up makes it slightly harder to bend the envelope. If I’m shipping something more valuable like a lolita print or a kpop photocard, I also put it in a plastic sleeve that’s hard to bend before putting it between chipboard.

I didn't want to make a thread for this but did anyone go yesterday / are currently here today? I went last Saturday and there were like five vendors and three itashas on display.

I include a sticker and business card in each order. It helps promote my shop too since they'll likely keep the sticker (with my business name on it) and stick it somewhere.

>because "lol we are both girls, its fine!"

That's like the shit you see in porn plots and what closeted bi/lesbians/not really gay but want to do it so they can show men about it type of girls, who are all in some way being exploitative to the person on the receiving end of things if they're just groping people all the time in public without consent. Normal girls don't get naked all the time unless it's at the sauna/Asian public baths, etc. or they're changing in a locker room scenario but usually they are wearing underwear and not touching each other. The vast majority of women almost never actually do the "its fine cause we're both girls teehee" shit, that's just what men wish we did. Like I said there's the immature stuff like the kancho game japanese boys do (with clothes on tho) or girls and guys slapping each other's butts as a "joke" but all that type of shit is stuff teens do and it's still mildly sexual when it happens if it's not something like a purple nurple intended to cause pain as the joke.

Straight women do not spontaneously or casually grope one another and not care/it not be sexual for at least one of the people, I know it may be confusing because of media and attention whores really pretending that it's all innocent but really and truly it is just not a common occurrence.
>>
>>10610348
I feel like all those things that say women are more gay than men naturally are not taking into account the fact that women are being exposed to media which is usually presented with a "straight male gaze" that will influence their ideas of sexuality beyond where they may originally start at, and aren't taking into account that bisexuality or homosexuality are much harder to admit to for men than women because of toxic social pressure on men to equate heterosexuality with masculinity.
>>
>>10610353
>The vast majority of women almost never actually do the "its fine cause we're both girls teehee" shit
of course, i'm just saying it does definitely happen though. I think some women see it in anime and think its totally ok to do irl too.

>>10610357
I think its just women are more attractive than men. I saw a reddit post asking if men ever get complimented for their looks, and thousands of responses say no. And then there was the okcupid poll that showed men were rated way lower in attractiveness than women.
When your average man spends no time on self-care and looks like a slob, and your average woman actually puts at least *some* time into self care, then naturally, more people will generally find women more attractive.
There is definitely toxic masculinity/societal views mixed in there with being an issue too, but seriously, Idk if I have ever met a bi person who said they find more men attractive than women. I'm a man and its incredible the how little self care I have to put into my self to have women compliment me. I'm always confused by it and then they describe how their bf or male friends take no care of themselves.
Why would you limit yourself to men when there are just so many more women who actually take care of themselves?
>>
>>10610362
>Why would you limit yourself to men when there are just so many more women who actually take care of themselves?

Because I really just prefer dick even though I find women attractive and men have lower standards and my childhood trauma, mental illness, and being overweight are less likely to be dealbreakers despite women being more accepting when it comes to male partners. But yeah desu I think most women who shit talk their bfs are just not in a long term compatible relationship. I am super happy with my boyfriend and he responds well to constructive criticism in all areas of his life and is supportive to me as well. It's less about male/female overall and just finding people who meet your specific needs.

I know I've seen a few maps related to this. Here's the first one I could find:
https://aspe.hhs.gov/pdf-report/vaccine-hesitancy

Going by that map, it looks like the northwest flyover states are the most "vaccine hesitant", followed by the southeast (which includes Georgia).
Since you brought it up, pretty much all of the states in those areas are red states, so there is certainly some correlation there.
But I guess Georgia is considered a blue state now, so I digress.

hey there! my texture also varies between 3b/3c depending if i air dry or plop. keep in mind that with all these styles, my bangs are straightened and not tied up! my go-to is half up/half down styles, top being either pigtails or just a ponytail. sometimes i do space buns, twin braids, or just scrunch my curls w/ product to give a lot of volume with my straight bangs. they're all relatively quick styles and look schoolgirl-y enough to me. i do prefer letting my hair air dry, as my curls are looser and look a little beachier that way. hope it helps!

Yeah great but lolita's name history isn't like that, you have a giant page on that on the origin in its jp wikipedia page (and yes, it's the book, but the interpretation of it is different in jp).

>>10610314
in both of your exampes the insults weren't the origins of the fashions tho whereas mass-produced wota and similar are just stereotypes associated with pre-existing styles, just like how carnivore kei/肉食系 is associated with gyaru styles despite just being a term for sex craving people.

>>

She looks like the size anachans want to stop at but never do cause they always see themselves as fat.

Like other than her wrists being a bit bony here she doesn't look more than a kinda lanky person, but even so, anorexia is a mental illness; she was probably still not treating her body well to even be only moderately thin
