    • 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.

    I like cats way more than dogs now. I used to like dogs when I was a kid more but now it's the opposite.

     I'm pretty sure it is different considering they do have ancestry.  I'm not specifcally talking about the ones who identify with their Asian side,that's  different. I'm specifically talking about the ones who exaggerate their ancestry to avoid being seen as another ancestry. It's one thing to be identify with your Asian side  more because you have more of an interest in Asian culture and society and feel more closely related to it.

    Yeah it seems like it. A lot of people I met who say they are "introvert" go out partying every night and have over 100+ friends. That's not what an introvert is?

    I have a question but I'm not sure if this would fit in this category. Lately I've been seeing some people who have Asian ancestry(usually one of their parent is half Asian or even one of their grandparents is half  Asian) have been calling themselves full 'Asian' instead of calling themselves mixed race and actually denying they are mixed race. Would they fit into this category sort of? Or would that be a different topic?

    Jvlogging... I find it boring? Many of the videos repeat  the same topic/location/style of content.... cool it's not like I watched the same topic 20 times already. I may be biased but I find many of the girl vloggers boring to me.  Maybe it's because I'm not the demographic they sought out since they're more feminine, talk about fashion, etc and I'm... neither of those things.   Nothing wrong with that. But also there really isn't new topics being brought up in these vlogs. I would like to see a diversity of interests like female bodybuilding in Japan, women who like motorcycles and what biker culture in Japan is like, women who are polyglots/who want to be polyglots, just a few ideas.

    Hey! I'm also interested in martial arts as well!
    I think it depends what you are really looking for.  Here's a link explaining different martial arts and what they are good for(in terms of body):
    https://themmaguru.com/which-martial-art-should-i-learn-first/
    I think I may go for Muay Thai, BJJ, Krav Maga since my interests lie more in self-defense. As for Kung Fu itself, I think all of these martial arts are important so it's more on what your goals are.

    This makes everything even more shady. Brianna should be careful, especially is someone is involved with yakuza. If she is not careful and flirts with danger, she might end up being dragged into his problems.

    I tell my mom that makeup will not completely change my features to  make me look better.
    I still look ugly but with makeup.

    I wanted to regrow some of my sides due to my hair being tied too hard(Thanks mom!)
    Maybe others can chime in and give their advice on what works for them?
    - Eat foods that will help you hair regrowth. No processed foods. Protein is really important.
    -Make sure you get all of your vitamins and get rid of any deficiencies. Biotin, Vitamin A, Vitamin B12 + B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin D(very important so try to get enough sunlight and supplements), Vitamin E.
    -Hair masks.
    -Fasting. In long term. After fasting for about nearly 6 months, I found my sides were growing and my forehead looks a bit smaller. Make sure you get enough calories and nutrients or you may end up losing hair.
    -Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, Castor Oil can help with thickening.
    -Massage the area in which you want your hair to grow. 10-15 minutes. 2-3 times a week or more if you prefer. You can massage the area with coconut oil or other oils if you like.
    -If your hair needs to be in a ponytail, make it loose, not tight.
    -If your hair needs to be brushed after taking shower(its best not to do that but if you have to), don't brush starting from the root. Brush at the ends by grabbing the part of your hair in the middle and brushing the ends. That way you are not tugging at your hair.

    I've been using an argan oil shampoo and it helped with the frizz and texture! I try to wash my hair every other day as well.
    What else am I missing?

    Have you tried using oils for your hair? I read that if your hair is dry, it is lacking in oils which is also the reason I try not to wash my hair everyday since in my country that's quite popular to wash hair everyday. I used a shampoo that has argan oil in it and it seems like it helps the frizz? At least for me.

    It bothers me how people who claim to be "body positive" end up doing the opposite to women who do not fit the standard of what a woman's body should be. Just because they may have a more androgynous figure rather than a 'feminine' one doesn't mean they are lesser than women who fit society's standards for women. It's the same with facial features, some women may have masculine features or features that are not conventionally attractive. I hate how someone's worth is based on solely on their body type and appearance.
