There was someone in the previous thread talking about their neighbor's hoarding tendencies that kicked off a discussion of hoarders and hoarding, complete with photos. No other thing on this failure of a planet convinces me to do chores more than photos of people choosing to live in filth. I can understand ceasing to give a gently caress due to despression and the like. Deliberately being lazy? I don't get it.

Hording seems to be a symptom of depression or some other mental disorder or trauma. Deliberate laziness though Iíve come to associate with toxic masculinity and other failures to parent and/or learned helplessness lest we forget the Reddit posts about young adult men who donít wipe properly or wash their assholes. Apologies I donít have a picture but a twitter post went viral in the last day where a young guy purposely left his kitchen messy and brought his girlfriend over for the first time. After she left he publically lamented she wasnít wife material because she didnít touch a single piece of the filth. She found the post and dumped him, good on her.

Laziness knows no gender, plenty of disgusting women out there too.

But thatís not what weíre discussing. That said, I believe the same Reddit post included an empathetic response from a young man who lived with an adult sister who did not work nor had good hygiene to the point of stinking of old blood. However I maintain there are some differing mechanisms from the ďnurtureĒ side of things when it comes to expectations of cisgender men and women when it comes to cleanliness (of self and the home).

And now I realize this is toeing too close to debating what is/nít AUG so Iíll leave off on this line of discussion.

Small story: at one point I lived with roommates in a poorly-built house (newer, but built on the cheap right before the artificially inflated housing bubble burst) where we discovered during deep cleaning upon preparing for moveout that the master bedroom tub had a crack where the tub met the tile that mushrooms grew from. A couple lived in that room and there was nothing obvious by way of odor, but they were first to leave and only afterward did we realize they were poor cleaners to put it kindly. Imagine showering and having these very thin mushrooms sprouting inches from where you stood, an inch high. I wish Iíd taken pics because Iíve never found anything like them before or since.

Agreed. Although I have to say that with the first picture I thought the arm was still attached and the owner was giving the peace sign, then ended up impressed at how well the amputation was done with what little I understand about the various arteries and the ball at the end of the bone.

I really cannot believe that plugs in the cheeks guy doesn't have huge problems becuase of that. your mouth evolved to be sealed, so it must be super hard to eat and drink, keeping it clean must be brutal.

I canít remember if it was an earlier iteration of this thread or a body mod thread from years ago, but I remember someone saying mods like this cause uncomfortable dryness in the mouth; Iíd think the area is more susceptible to infection what with dried out mucus membranes, meaning micro-tears that bacteria can go party in.

whatís extra-upsetting about these stories is Iíve read them before. No, not these specific stories because I donít believe theyíve been shared here before, but Iíve read about people using D&D to have one character surprise sex another, and of delusional people who thought they were in a non-Biblical, supernatural struggle on the cusp of the End of the World.

Whatís gross is how it feels as if these young men - and letís admit it, itís almost always men between 18-30 or so in these stories - are either leaning into their possible mental issues knowing theyíll get a pass on the bad behavior and/or they had some lousy/absent parents, too permissive, in denial of their kidís issues, or both. Iím autistic. I was always incredibly socially awkward and will spend my life having difficulty navigating that, but I NEVER used any relationship as a gateway to sexual assault. Autism makes it tough to judge social cues, toxic masculinity is what makes these guys push boundaries without remorse.

Years ago we had a whole thread full of stories like these, maybe have even budded off an AUG thread.

At that point thereís people bringing her the kind of food and enough of it to keep her there. One of the takeaways I got from shows like 600lb life is the weight is a visible symptom of untreated trauma or a dysfunctional relationshitp.

Yikes is putting it mildly. An Australian paper published that and when people demanded an apology the paper doubled down on the racism. Not only did the artist fall back on the most overt racist caricature they could muster, but they whitewashed Osaka. The reaction to Williams standing up for herself is the most awkward, ugly, and gross response to a sporting-related story since, well, some folks burned their Nikes (but maybe thatís more schadenfreude thread appropriate).

Keeping up with the Jonesís for the nerd culture crowd. I own more than one FunkoPop but 75% of those were gifts because to me thatís where those figures fit in: donít know what to buy a coworker/distant relative/gaming group member for a birthday/holiday? ďOh hey, I know this person likes Show, this is a fun thing to get and in my budget.Ē The collecting though....I think in part it carried over from the original vinyl toy hobby where runs of items were genuinely limited to some extent.

Do not look up fluffy ponies. My understanding - solely based on posts in prior threads - is it came from bronies who werenít satisfied with merely sexualizing and gatekeeping media intended for children and wanted to go the extra mile by making something so disturbingly abusive most bronies wonít touch it. These are real people in our real society, and despite what we assume of these sort of men thereís a non-zero chance one is a parent, or at the very least an uncle. I hate this timeline.

I canít find the thread now but was one on Reddit from this year of industry professionals (florists, photographers, dress shop salespeople, etc) sharing their worst experiences and it often seemed it was a parent who ultimately caused the problems, whether it was an overly controlling mother or a father who acted like an apologetic rear end in a top hat for their tantruming adult child. Lots of implied alcoholism. At least one arrest when a women smashed a cake that wasnít hers. Just some of the ugliest entitlement comes out of peoplesí weddings.

20ish years ago I used to read a website called Etiquette Hell that published peopleís questions and experiences about social faux pas. Their wedding section was most popular, and the story of the Titanic bridal party dresses was their best known one and is more purely awkward than anything. The original siteís post was taken down last year because the husband of the bride found out and was apparently not happy.
