    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

    People keep calling my fiance a beta soy boy for being against Vic. 1. Soy doesn't cause feminization , he's a masculine dude anyway and doesn't fall into the stereotype of soy boy.  2. It's not offensive. He's hella lactose intolerant or allergic to dairy. Soy milk is one of his favorite dairy free options.

    This is precisely my thought process. In Japan, residential neighborhoods are surprisingly close knit. I wouldn’t be surprised if she hung around for a long time, especially if she didn’t ask permission, that someone did inform the local police.
    And, in all fairness, filming is prohibited in public stores and restaurants without permission in Japan. Obviously, people do it anyway, but you could rightfully get asked to leave or get in trouble for this if a patron was to complain. Apply this to a private residence, and you could absolutely be in trouble with police if someone were to call them.

    I can't help but lose a little respect for people who hold some ideals I find illogical or otherwise wrong. And no, I'm not talking about amoral behaviour, but religious/spiritual people, vegans, people who call themselves feminists...
    I'd like to be a "you do you" kind of person, but I just can't.

    Reusable grocery bags aren't that hard to use. I wish more people used them. Every time I go to the grocery store or Target or the mall or wherever I'm usually the only person holding my own bags. Like that plastic bag you used once is gonna be around forever. Why do people care so much about a sea turtle swallowing a straw but not about a sea turtle mistaking a plastic bag for a jelly fish. It just really bothers me. And I don't think hoarding a huge supply of them in your house makes you any better. Also, I know they can be recycled but still... Why not just stop the cycle.... 
    Another thing cuz I was stalking some people I used to know on Instagram. I'm vegan and find a lot of other vegans toxic. They claim they care about everyone but when you ask them to care they suddenly tell you it's not their problem. Vegans can be sexist, racist, etc. (And a lot of them can be extremely tone deaf) I always thought if someone was vegan they would have more compassion but it's really not that simple. I finally unfollowed and blocked those people cuz it just made me mad look at them. So yay. The past is in the past. I gotta keep moving forward. I just wanna say, you don't need to protest or hang out with other vegans to be vegan. Some vegans say you have to go out and be active but I found that lifestyle draining. Now I just volunteer at a local animal shelter. There's still some drama but it's significantly less. Plus I'm a cat person lol. 
    Edit: after typing all this I just realized I recently hit my 5 year vegan anniversary! Woohoo!

    Well she already try to hide the time she get married and when she was in Canada.
    That wouldn't surprise me, because I don't think there are no options left.
     
    What happens to such a person like Miranda that she went from an stupid, annoying girl that has a bad personality but was technically normal.
    She goes out, try to date guys, is interested in sex.
    To a muslima that want to hide her face in public, only want one man and want only to go outside with him.
    A person that grow up in a modern western system. To someone who really think that the fundamental system of Islam has to rule the world.
    That's so bizarre, like a person who was born male, then get trans, get an operation to be a woman and now protest on the streets against gay people...
     
    Don't get me wrong this is again no rant about Islam.
    If her reasons for converting were the wish to be accepted and a community were she feel safe its totally o for me.
    But that she now believe in ALL the more extreme way of Islam,... that's strange. She is brainwashed.
    How can someone  transform from a "slut" to an "extremist" and really believe that her past live don't matter?
     
     
    Also to mention it again.
    She said she wear niquab all day outsite.
    How many persons in Japan wear niquab????
    Maybe some people and tourists from Indonesia wear hijab,... but she is the only one in niquab  in Tokyo.
    Yeah that will protect you Miranda from being found....

    Not sure about the other things you have mentioned but I do this all the time. You just have to wash your hand and dry them on a towel or something, it's not that unpractical.

    She had an explanation on Stream that March 22nd, she will be getting lip fillers. I was there on stream.
     
    Also she had been using an American cosmetic named Candy Apple Lip? I did not really understand. But it's a device she will use to help give her lips more natural volume.
     
    Now she has saved enough money to get Juvederm I think she mentioned.

  10. lightning added a post in a topic Unpopular Opinions (K-POP Edition)   

    I hope that different kinds of beauty will be celebrated in the future, so that idols and trainees won't feel the need to get work done at such a young age. I think that praising idols solely for their looks does more harm than good. It should be acceptable for them to have "flaws."
    Also, I feel like idols working themselves to the point of exhaustion is romanticized by a lot of fans, when in reality, it's extremely unhealthy.

    He sees it as dragged out? How awful to even think along that line of thought let alone put it out there for the world to read. Abuse, bullying, and having it blasted on social media or publicly time after time is going to impact someone for their entire life. 
    Rin’s circle is sinking him just as much as he has himself. I don’t think they have realized they’re in as deep as they think they are because the people in their life are brushing it off as past drama thinking it will blow over.
    It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that this isn't damage control. I've seen people who have done equal or worse damage put more effort into a show of empathy than this group. They could all at least pretend. What a bunch of narcissists.

  12. htttps added a post in a topic Ariana Grande   

    expecting potential victims to speak against their abusers just because they have a big platform is NOT the way to go. we dont know to what extent his actions personally affected them and they shouldnt have to relive their trauma just for our sake. 
     
    all of Dan's shows in Nickelodeon were hits, which why they let him get away with it for so long. he might be out of the platform now because of the obvious public blacklash, but do y'all seriously think his coworkers and business contacts easily cancelled him?? that literally never happens
    if Ariana were to speak up about him she would have to confront him, the whole channel, and everyone else in the industry that would definitely side with him because Hollywood is a business and it has always been run by disgusting people who love to protect eachother
    there's a lot of stars that worked in Nickelodeon and none of them have spoken up, and we were never behind the cameras to know what really happened to them, but if they're keeping quiet it must be for a reason.

    Went to a work enkai on my birthday. One of my coworkers told me I should try talking to more of the staff because they want to talk to me. She brought up how others have noticed how shy I am. I'm an introvert but I like talking and I'll talk a lot once someone gets me going. But it's exhausting being expected to talk to so many people. My Japanese isn't very good and most of the people I work with don't know a lot of English, or at least some. At some of my schools where I talk to all the teachers, they usually have at least someone who knows some basic English and we usually talk together as a group, which is GREAT because then not everything is about me and we can use Japanese and English together. One on one is a lot harder when it's not with the English teachers, who I do talk to a lot. I was also never given anything with the teachers' names in hiragana because I can't read kanji names for the most part. I've asked and never gotten any charts. 
    I am a very approachable person and I am good at keeping conversation going, so I'm feeling a little down that she told me I'm not sociable enough, or maybe not as much as they expected me to be. It's hard enough trying to build up relationships with my students because I mainly have large schools (but somehow I still do it). I wish that the staff would just talk with me more if they want to, I seriously don't bite. This goes for more than one of my schools. I'm better at having people initiate conversation with me than me doing it because I don't like interrupting people when they're busy and teachers are BUSY. I'm also a lot younger than everyone. I only talk with the English teachers more because I work directly with them and I have no trouble getting them going. lol
    I know things said at work parties should be taken with a grain of salt because we're all drinking, but it's been hinted I'm too quiet for awhile now. Next time I'm just going to tell them if others want to talk to me, they should try talking first. It can't all fall on me to start a conversation. I am going to be sitting beside different staff so maybe I'll get more chances to talk with the teachers who are friendlier towards me. Because some straight up pretend I don't exist, including an English teacher. Or maybe I should try starting an eikaiwa group with the teachers? I'm not sure if any of them would be up for that but that seems like the only way to work around the age difference and to get regular teachers talking to me.
    It would be nice if more of them checked on how I'm doing and how I'm adapting to living in another country sometimes. I think I'm actually going to ask my whack coworker for some advice because he's the only one I really trust to talk about all of this to, and he used to live for a year in my province. Hopefully I can get him to because I'd like someone my age who I can talk to about this.

  16. Sayonaroo added a post in a topic Joankeem / Joanday   

    the Scene where she was reading the book while waiting for the sheet mask To dry is so contrived .nobody reads a book while waiting for a sheet mask to dry it just makes no practical sense if your hands are wet the last thing you want to touch is a physical book . At most you would touch your Kindle or listen to an audiobook or scroll through instagram ( in Joan’s case she is finding the next outfit to copy from Jennie). She doesn’t understand the concept of a storyboard it seems ...
    i cant help but get the impression that she wants to appear more smart or cultured. All she has to do shatter that forced image is to open her mouth and speak her broken English and cringey korean . I also found it hilarious and depressing how she kept flip the page so forcefully/dramatkaly as to proclaim “I’m so smart” or “look I’m trying to  improve myself by reading “ girl needs to learn to be gentle with her face, her books, etc
    besids the shit quality, I cannot stand how fake it is. It’s a video of lies. She’s a straight up liar lol. Why bother making a video if all you are gonna show is this fake ideal image of yourself that fools no one!!! Or does she think her demographic is that dumb? I’m sure there are more unrealistic, unpractical things about the video that people could point out... this video is demonstrates that she plans poorly and critically lacks critical thinking. That video is full of so many faux pas and eye-roll inducing moments

    I don’t know why anyone would WANT people to be friends with Rin seeing as how he has a history of treating his friends so poorly. Honestly, Rin’s friends would be doing themselves a favor if they cut ties. They aren’t losing anything.

    If I were a resident and saw some random girl posing and taking pictures on my porch I'd call the police, no questions asked.
    I remember she did a similar thing back in California. I think in front of someone's garage? Why does she think it's okay to film in front of strangers' houses? Did her parents literally never teach her basic manners or how to respect others' property and privacy?

  19. anisa_jomha_receipts added a post in a topic Anisa Jomha/Raihnbowkidz [iDubbbz's Girlfriend]   

    It's from her newest video where she preaches that "ALL INSTAGRAM IS FAKE, EVERYONE PHOTOSHOPS. If you edit yourself you're INSECURE, love your TRUE SELF UWU)". Which is fucked considering all her friends she sucks up to (Mariah Mallad, Pokimane, Lia/sssniperwolf, etc.) insanely photoshop and edit their photos. Another instance of her putting other women down to pull herself up.
    She revealed new things in her stream from her search results:
    1) SO hardworking with research on her newest self love video to destroy instagram thots by googling "instagram vs reality" 
    2)First person that pops up when she types up "instagram" in the search bar is Chris Ray Gun.
    3) Her google account is connected to no matter which computer she uses(San Diego/Edmonton) so these search results are not outdated.

  22. touru added a post in a topic Pewdiepie   

    Its only insensitive if you want it to be insensitive-- he unfollowed everyone except for bts most likely because his entire timeline was filled with the most negative shit imaginable. if he wants to be funny and tweet silly bts~*~*~army~~*~* tweets, then he will. I'm glad he's just doing meme review and trying to be happy at the moment, it's not a bad thing to carry on. (because he already donated and spoke his condolences) 
    It's also kinda funny he got that tweet from a fan account, when I saw it on my timeline I thought, "What I don't follow fan accounts--- oh my god its Felix" and I was trying to control my laughter at work.
    (Also, taking a tweet from someone isn't necessarily stealing it since they're just photos of Jimin, not fan/original art. Lots of fans in the replies like it because they're promoting bts' next album ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ army approves I suppose)

  23. CosplayQueen added a post in a topic YandereDev/ Evaxephon General Thread   

    On a general note regarding that topic, I wonder if this game in particular does benefit from a blank love interest tho.
    i know from many visual novels that the protag is often silent so you can fully imagine yourself in the story, especially in dating games. so i think this is where alex got the idea from. but in yansim it's not like senpai would be like a silent protag because he is not the protag. he is a character who still interacts with others and has dialogues e.g. with osana. when he interacts with others he is portrayed as very shy, very polite, careful and not to talk back. so he still has sort of a personality, even if it's a bland one, since we see him interacting with others and participating in school activities.
    when i play a visual novel and my protag is completly silent i can identify with them if the game let's me make decisions for the character. sort of like we play ayano and make decisions for her. so i can see how her being bland still sort of works. but as for senpai i feel like hei sn ot a blanket character since i can't decide on how i want him to be and he'll still have his own schedule and dialogues e.g. with osana no matter what i do. i personally feel like that is why i think he isn't working out for many people.

    She used to look so pretty when she was in Japan, and her overall style felt cohesive. Now she just looks like a shill for whatever trend's "in" with the Kardashian or whatever at the moment.
    Also I know it's been said a million times before but damn I want to cut those rat tails off. Why does she do them? They don't hide her cheek fillers or anything. They just look gross.
