User avatar #197 - penileburglar (11/13/2014) [-]
Yeah, you need to educate yourself, because you're being insanely irresponsible if you're doing rape-play and you don't have a safeword.

You would get shit on by every member of the fetish community for that. Whether you enjoy it or not, there are still some very strong emotions involved in that kind of play, and you can't rely on 'empathy and body language.'

Seriously, get a fetlife and educate yourself before you fucking hurt somebody.

That's seriously just really stupid.

If no isn't a cue to stop, some other word should be. Otherwise, it's very possible that you'll actually seriously hurt her without realising it until it's too late. It's happened plenty of times.

Im into the same thing, and trust me on this, get a safe word. Even if we like being 10000000000000000% dominated, sometimes things'll go too far, or it'll hurt too much. It might not have happened so far, but that doesnt mean it wont.
User avatar #15 - twistedwoodthing (11/12/2014) [-]
I suppose people who are into rough play can be an exception. I'd still recommend having a way for her to say "No" and have it be understood as "no", if only so that you can be sure.

I've been complimented a few times on my shirt, and I'm a guy.
It's not like it's even special, it was just a vibrant cyan kool-aid man t-shirt I got from Wal-Mart.

i believe the line should be drawn somewhere. If you havent taken the time to get to know the person "hey sexy! or hey mami" from across the street is pretty fucking inappropriate. If you want to talk to a random stranger a simple "Hey,how are you?" or " hi, I thought you were really cute and had to say hello, im anon whats your name?" would immensely suffice
User avatar #10 - twistedwoodthing (11/12/2014) [-]
*Thank you*. The point is if you want to talk to someone, talk to them. Have a conversation. And honestly, if they don't seem into it then leave them be (sometimes, we all just want to be left alone). There's no way people can pretend that calling at someone as they pass by is actually an attempt to improve that person's day.
The reason guys don't get attention like that, even non-sexual attention, is because there's a chance they'll actually react to it.

#186 - fuckinfuckinfuck (11/13/2014) [-]
Sage advice, well said.

Also, the way I look at it, if the girl just lies there and act indifferent, it's rapey, but if she fucks back (physical consent) then it's consensual and fine in the end. Guys should know not to advance past first base when a girl is saying "no" or expressing physically that she doesn't want to. Girls should know to say "no" and not just be a pushover, because that's contributes to the problem just as much.

Your advice for men is good, but women also need advice about this stuff. Don't just lie there and let someone fuck you if you don't want it. By remaining neutral, you're giving more signs of consent than you'd think, by just going with it and permitting it to happen.

I'm actually kind of tired of hearing about these ambiguous cases, where the guy thinks the girl gives the ok (since she obviously doesn't prevent it from moving forward), and then she presses charges later because apparently she didn't want it. For every case where the guy is just too pushy, overbearing, and forceful, there's probably an equal number of cases where the girl is just too passive about her stance on the matter, sends the wrong signal, and then doesn't do anything else to stop it once the man interprets that signal wrong. Women can be just as enabling as men when it comes to this.

Sometimes I wish people would just bring up an example like "If I'm in your house, and I ask to borrow this lamp, and you don't say anything, and you see me walk out with the lamp and still don't say anything, should I actually be convicted of theft just because later you think 'Damn, I really wanted that lamp'?"

To be fair man, I don't think any normal person finds themself raping somebody and thinks, "Yeah. This is okay."

If a real rapist saw your advice, he'd just say that's some pretty good advice, go outside, think things over for a little bit, and then rape somebody.

i got that girl that enjoys being dominated...
she would be damn disappointed if i took her no as a real no.
how come i know? because she fucking is disappointed if i stop when she says no! and she is pretty satisfied if i just do what i want with her

so i think your advice doesnt work always

I knew a kid whose family was a bunch of hard core catholics and he would come to play D&D with us on saturday nights, apparently the entire time he considered himself a Satanist and his games with us a form of Satan worshiping because that's what his parents taught him that D&D was. He didn't really realize that satanism was something ENTIRELY different until he was 20 something and tried to mix with a bunch of 'actual' satanists.
Haven't really heard much from him since, who knows maybe he's actually a satanist by now.

Well, I never used to worship Satan.
But by last week I was straight up carving a human heart on the battle grid. I don't even want to think about what I'm going to have to sacrifice to The Bright One in order for the DM to let me multiclass.
I don't know about D&D Fourth Edition or Pathfinder, but you're basically signing away your soul the minute you pick up 3.5.

Also, I don't know if this makes it less strange, but I actually made this image by request for a completely unrelated thread.

I don't know *why* it picked up on that - I wouldn't think google was tailoring it to show me those results as it's not really my thing.

Ran out of room to reply:
Anyway, I currently live in what was my family home with my siblings and two other renters (my parents moved, we live in the house and pay rent). As for the travelling, I did a 6 month study abroad program in France a couple years back, and had the option to travel around a bit. I lived in Dijon, in Burgundy, which isn't quite as sketchy as the south.
As for Fargo, I can't recommend it enough. It's hilarious, and at times really intense. I like my humour pretty dark so it works for me.

That's pretty sweet. When I lived in the UK being of age I used every opportunity to travel around. Especially Italy, I love Italy. I still do that, to a certain extent. In fact I recently moved to Washington DC.
User avatar #37 to #36 - twistedwoodthing (12/05/2013) [-]
Oh cool, spent about two weeks in Northern Italy. Rome, Florence, Sienna, Venice. I went on a bus tour that was primarily comprised of retired aussies and kiwis, they were a lark.
What are you doing in Washington DC? I suppose the standard assumption is something to do with government.
User avatar #38 to #37 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
No, my contract my then-current employer ended with and at the same time I had friction with the girl I was living with in Missouri. So, since I've been travelling all around since I was 15, I just packed my things in a container, got up on my bike and decided on a spot on the map. I'm looking for a job, but I have enough saved to live for about 10 months.

User avatar #6 to #5 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
It's a reference to a character from the Gormenghast books (if you don't know them, it's just about the strangest fantasy series I've ever read. Only the first, and maybe second, books are worth reading because the author was partially insane by the time he wrote the third). You can just call me Thing, or Chloe if you prefer.
Why did you decide to go by Thebestpieever? And shall I call you pie?
User avatar #8 to #6 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
I like Chloe; Chloe's pretty.
Well, I used to listen to watch this show where the usernames would sent in silly things that happened whilst they played videogames and the hosts would often comment on the usernames of the senders. So, I thought this would spark some nice comment.
As for what you call me, yeah Pie's fine, you can also call me Walker.
I also think I'm gonna read those books as soon as I'm finished with the one I'm reading now.
User avatar #10 to #8 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
The writing is amazing, but it's not easy going. Mervyn Peake was also an illustrator, so he describes a lot of scenes very meticulously. It's great for visualizing the enormous, gothic castle where it all takes place, and the characters he describes are by turns complex and over the top. Sometimes all the description is overwhelming and you'd give anything for a bit of simple dialogue. But I've yet to read a series that felt so much like there was an actual world behind it.

What are you reading right now? I'm always on the lookout for recommendations.
User avatar #11 to #10 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
I've been reading a book called "Jam" by Ben Croshaw. It's... It's alright. I'm about 60 pages in and so far there's been some really obvious problems narration-wise to the point where I often have to go back a few pages because I've found myself completely lost about that the characters are currently doing. The stream of conciousness narration is very well done, when it's there, but it has a very inconsistent style of narration and tone. It is a very good comedy when it tries to be one, but the more serious stuff feels haphazard and more like an attempt by the author to be validated rather than any serious story he wanted to tell.
User avatar #12 to #11 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
Oh cool, Yahtzee's book! (or one of them anyway, I think he has two now) Yeah, I'm sorry to hear it has issues, although I'd like to read it. I love his game reviews, I was wondering how the sense of humour would translate to a full length novel.

You know Yahtzee, that's co cool. I never read Mogworld, but from what I hear most people liked it better than Jam.. The humour is there, and really well done, though.
So I take it you play videogames?

If I manage to save up for a new laptop any time in the next year, though, I'd like to play Amnesia, I love horror. I'd like to try to get a copy of bioshock, too, since everyone raves about it and my brother might let me borrow his 360 after exam period. Do you have any recommendations?

So you like games, reviews of games, reading and silly pictures in funnyjunk. What else do you like?
User avatar #18 to #17 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
Science Fiction and Horror, (both reading it, writing it, and watching movies), the Daily Show and the Colbert Report, webcomics and baking. I've only recently taken up playing MTG and Dungeons & Dragons, but I love them, and music-wise, I've got a very mongrel taste but lately I've been listening to increasing amounts of metal.
And what about you sir? Likes? Dislikes? Pet Peeves? Quirks?
User avatar #19 to #18 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
Horror an fantasy, also reading, writing and watching it. Game Of Thrones, The Graham Norton Show, Friends (The only shows I watch that haven't created a super invasive fandom that has alienated the rest of the internet) Music: Everything, really, but I'm mainly a fan of Rock'n'roll. Also a big fan of metal, though, Black Sabbath is my second favourite band. I'm also big on motorcycles: riding, fixing, looking, buying, all of it.
As for pet peeves and quirks: I can't think of any pet peeve that's big enough to mention, and I have waaay too many little quirks.
Sir, I like that; you are a very refined woman, milady.

I noticed some Dr Who on your profile (I was creeping - best way to find good stuff on Funny Junk is to browse your friends' uploads/favourites.) I likes me some doctor but I'm way behind, and I'm not sure I could ever warm up to Matt Smith. Tennant's my favourite, in part because I so respect him as an actor (goddamn brilliant hamlet), and in part because I have a fangirlish crush. Don't judge me.
Speaking of, I got some serious feels from some of the stuff in your faves, esp. "Love" and "Ancient Wisdom." that's good taste right there.
Black Sabbath is actually playing in my city next year, but I haven't heard enough of them to know if I should try to get tickets. Do you have any album suggestions?
Also, you mentioned moving to the states, and given the references to Dr. Who and Treacle, I'm guessing from somewhere in the UK? Basically, what accent should I be reading your comments in, haha?

When it comes to Black Sabbath it comes like this:
The first two: Black Sabbath and Paranoid are masterpieces; superb albums, don't think I've hear anything like them. The third, Master of Reality is great but nothing close. Vol. 4 is good. The Fifth, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is also great. Sixth, Sabotage is also good. The seventh, Technical ecstasy is very good but it sounds nothing like what comes before or after. The eight just blows. The Ninth, Heaven and Hell is also a masterpiece but it is heaver than anything they've done. And the tenth is also great, Master of Reality level. After that, they have some good stuff, some bad stuff but nothing as noteworthy (I would suggest "Cross Purposes" "13" and "Headless Cross).

When it comes to the accent... that's weird. I was born in Spain, but I lived in the UK till I was six. Then we moved to Spain for the briefest time (like 4 months) but I was in the hospital so it might as well have been the UK. Then we moved to Mexico. Then I went back to the UK and now America. So... yeah, my accent is as if a Spaniard tried and half succeeded to speak in a midlands accent. It's a shame that the whole ordeal messed up my English accent 'cause I don't even speak Spanish all that well.

With you I guess I can imagine (Being oot and aboot with some loonies in your pocket, eh) what kind of accent you have.

On the theme of Doctor Who, I like Smiths performance but I think that most of the stories he's been in have been rubbish save for about 10 throughout his whole run.

Well in that case I'll probably start with the first two, and Heaven and Hell (I tend to like it pretty heavy, so that sounds like my direction.)
As to accent, I never used to think I had one until I became friends with some Americans on an exchange. We sounded just the same until it came to words like "out and about", whereupon they'd giggle at how I said it. The way they said it, to me, sounded like flapping your mouth open to catch flies. I actually visited a bit of England once, only a little under a week in London (and only a weekend in Spain) but I'd love to go back someday. Ever been North of the US border?
User avatar #32 to #31 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
I'm a big fan of the way they speak in the Americas overall. From the southern states to Canada, it all sounds really cool to me. Also... I apologise in the name of the British Nation for anything you may have seen in London if you went anywhere near the east side of town.

I've been to Canada three times. My parents used to own a little house near Whitehorse, so we'd sometimes go there in the winter to ski and stuff. And just once I went over the border while I was faffing about in NYC after a work trip. I liked it, it really is my type of place. Sunny and warm locales just aren't my style.

I don't know how people can live in tropical places, the lack of seasonal change would send me haywire. I think it's a deep-rooted, physiological thing. And aside from the confusing metro system London was quite pleasant, I saw worse things in France daily.
I haven't yet been to Whitehorse and that end of the country (I'm from the east coast), but I'm trying to save to go there this summer.
As to accents, there are a lot of good ones. I'd have to say my favourite out of anywhere is a slight Indian or Irish accent, although for North America there's some newfie accents that are surprisingly musical. Have you ever seen the movie Fargo? The accents in it are exaggerated but hilarious.
User avatar #34 to #33 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
Yeah, France is... really rough. Not exactly nice.
I had assumed you lived with your family, and, by extension you'd go on holiday with them. But apparently I was wrong; do you live on your own?
Also, no, I really want to watch it but it's on that infinite queue of "Damn it I was born in the 90's so there are 70 years of good movies to catch up on".
User avatar #16 to #15 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
Yeah, I feel you. I used to be a spoilt rich kid and a super hardcore gamer and then some stuff happened and I had to get a job and I have the time to play like a game a month, if that. I still watch all the reviews and stuff.

For PC I would recommend my favourite game: Fallout 3, the sequel New Vegas. Alan Wake, it's not perfect but it is unlike anything I've seen. Bioshock, definitely, Infitine is goot but not as much as one and you should avoid 2. If you like tactical games I would recommend Xcom. If you like Fable I would suggest Skyrim since it takes the freedom aspect to the extreme and in the opposite side I would suggest Mass Effect since it takes the narrative and customisation also to the extreme.

Sigh, sad confession bear time: I spend a lot of time on the internet, on sites like this, reading comics, watching reviews etc that have to do with video games, but my brother is the real gamer in my house. I don't think I've played anything seriously since Fable 2, and haven't been better at him at a game since Starfox 64. I'd play computer games, but my laptop wouldn't be able to handle it. So, essentially, I'm immersed in gaming culture, love talking and hearing about it, but can't play.
I am the filthiest of casuals.
