    • 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.

Venus Angelic- Illegal Weight Loss Sugery?


5 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

In a few of Venus Angelic’s recent videos, she claims to have had illegal stomach surgery in an attempt to lose weight. She shows emaciated pictures of herself (trigger warning), and also claims the doctor that performed the surgery has been arrested and jailed. Venus says it was a botched job. I feel bad for her if this is the truth. She made some admittedly cringey videos in the hospital with her stuffed animals set up in the background. In one of the titles she claims not to have eaten for 31 days. In my opinion, I can relate to restrictive behaviors with food and my own daily struggle with body image as many of us do, but this seems like a death sentence. She mentions that this surgery gave her a large scar similar to a C-section but doesn’t show it. Not that she has to expose her body, but it may add some credibility. I guess I’m just skeptical considering all the exaggeration that usually comes with upholding the ‘living doll’ persona, although I do wish her health and happiness. 

Her latest video she disclosed her decision to stay at a friend’s house while she works through some emotional issues. Nothing wrong with that in theory, but her friends seem like an echo-chamber for her emotionally driven choices. There’s some awkward conversational competition while they each wait impatiently to speak, and her friend stares creepily at her. 

Additionally, she uploaded a video called “I Don’t Want to Die” where she talks about being put on depression medication. I’m sure many of us can relate to this struggle, but I don’t think we would have made a video about it while cradling a stuffed animal in low lighting. 

Venus has been the least offensive to me of all the characters on PULL, but the topics of her videos lately have been (more) odd and (more) dramatic.. I recognize she’s going through A LOT. Especially for someone with her emotional maturity. I do think she’s more intelligent than she lets on, but her choices don’t really reflect that. At times, I’ve felt she’s more candid than other girls who emulate Shimmering Fetus Aliens. But her recent videos seem falsely forthright. How much can we know I suppose from picturesque, staged snapshots of her life.

Hi so, this has already been discussed in her thread, so there's no need for this to be its own separate thread.

She has two major threads that if you look around enough or use the search feature you'd find the discussion of this topic.

Her general thread

Her Video thread

Next time try to look around before you make a thread :alpacaheadshake:

I posted it in the general thread so I’ll delete this one I guess. Sorry, I haven’t been on here in a while

Not just that but she already has a height/weight thread. Can this thread be hidden?

I actually just found out about this after googling her name for the first time after not keeping up for a while at it seems like that's the case, at least from this article

It's really sad and she has so muhc sympathy from me but I'm also glad she's reached a point where she can acknowldge she has a disorder (body dysmorphia) and would like to get help

To be honest, I think that has A LOT to do with how she was basically prevented from having friends and other relationships by her mother as a teenager. Growing up all the 'friends' she had were on the internet, so I guess it's part of her natural process to be so candid online, maybe she's realising that's not always a good thing? Just speculation though i don't know.
