Quote from: ShootaBoy
Roughly three years ago, I finally lost my faith in the "benevolent" god my church had preached since my childhood. So I left. I spent a few months as an atheist, at which point I was disowned by my immediate family. During those months I found that I couldn't imagine that there was some kind of higher power, so I began researching other religions. None of the "main" religions (Christianity, Islam, Buddhism etc.) felt right so I began looking at religions from all periods of history.

My conversion came about when I began having I consistently reoccurring dream in which I was a sheep herder tending my flock, when a large wolf appeared and began devouring the sheep, I would try to stop it but would be knocked aside by its increasing bulk. After eating all of the sheep the wolf then began to eat the ground
itself, growing larger and larger with each mouthful. Flames leapt from from the holes created by the wolf and everything burned away to nothing.

After a month or so of seeing this almost every night and being unable to do anything it finally changed. One night, before the wolf appeared an old man, missing an eye and carrying a well worn staff, walked up and asked if I would sit with him awhile, I agreed and we sat and watched the sheep graze. Then the wolf came, as it always did, and I closed my eyes not wanting to see the world burn again. I heard the old man next to me telling me to open my eyes and look at him. I turned toward his voice and opened my eyes to see him no longer bent and frail with age, but tall and strong clad in fine armor and holding a spear. He stood and faced the wolf, who abandoned the sheep after seeing him, drove it off after a long battle. He turned towards me and nodded, at that point I woke up.

I immediately searched through my books looking for a deity fitting my dream, and sitting in my room at 4 A.M. I realized I had just been visited by Odin the Allfather.

So yeah, that was 3 years ago and I am happier now that I ever was as a Christian.
Ask me some questions about having a religious conversion experience.

The Something Awful Forums > Main > General Bullshit > E/N Bullshit > How do I turn my life around?

Quote from: Ferrosol
My name is Ferrosol and I am a complete fucking failure. I am 27 I have no job, no girlfriend I still live with my mother and have no real friends, I have no ambitions though I am not exactly physically fit (though not overweight or obese). I am also autistic (properly diagnosed by an educational psychologist.) and dyspraxic and also mildly dyslexic. the reason I decided to make this thread is quite simple today I lost my final straw. You see for the last few years (since leaving college.) I have been attending university and failing pretty badly. Now the reason I have been failing is quite simple I am a lazy fucker who wastes his time reading shitty books and reading and posting on various web forums including this one. Well anyway for the last year I have finally buckled down and put in some work and put in some work and I thought I was doing well at university. However today I got a letter from them through the door saying I had failed my course and would not be receiving any sort of degree because I had failed too many of my (earlier) modules.

So the question for you guys is fairly simple how the fuck do I turn my life around? I am now sat on a pile of academic debt with nothing to show for my efforts. I have no work experience not even a shitty job flipping burgers in Macdonalds. I have no friends who can put in a good word for me and no real marketable skills. The only reason I am avoiding suicide is quite simply because I refuse to put my family through any more distress because of what a shitty position I have already managed to land myself in.

I mean its simple really if I had a drugs problem or an alcohol problem there are places you can go and help you can get. But what the fuck do you do about a crippling laziness addiction. so I am appealing to you guys for help how the fuck do I stop being such a fucking failure and what the hell should I do with my life now?

tl;dr i'm a 27 year old manchild: never had a job and failed out of college hard cause i like posting on these forums

GIS search of poster: https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1TSND_enUS410US459&sugexp=chrome,mod=18&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=site%3Aforums.somethingawful.com+Ferrosol

Most of OP's post history is in threads about video games and dungeons and dragons shit, as well as threads about Star Wars and fantasy books

Some good goon advice (seriously):

Quote from: Super Aggro Crag
Maybe with your impairments you might be better suited doing a laboring type of job such as paving or general construction. I know the laborers in the Laborers Union here make $25/hr + health insurance and pension.

Quote from: Deteriorata
Being successful at college is less about being formally smart but more about being able to conform to the structure of the institution. Not doing well there does not mean you're dumb, it just means you don't fit that mold.

Hourly-wage jobs are no shame. You can go a long ways in a career working your way up. Managers appreciate workers they can rely on to get important jobs done, so you'll gradually get recognition if you're good.

Work on developing hobbies and outside interests to satisfy creative urges that work don't fulfill. Coach a kids' sports team. Help out with a Boy Scot troop. Join Big Brothers to help underprivileged kids. There's lots of ways to have a diverse and happy life outside of your job.

The important thing is to stop stewing in feeling sorry for yourself and get a move on. Get a job, start feeling worthwhile and get on with your life.

In my own experiences, things have often not turned out the way I'd hoped or expected, but in the long run they turned out OK. You'll be fine.

Yes! An e/n thread with actual good advice!

Not for long:

Quote from: GoLambo
What fucking just world fairy tail do you people live in? It's sure as shit not this reality.

I wish I had more inspiring words for you Ferrosol but I can tell you that your situation is hardly unique and not entirely your fault ether. If you've still got a roof over your head that's a big leg up on any other plan you might be able to enact in the future, whether attending another university (it's possible) or entering the working world (also possible). I'm sure it's possible to get by being a joyless workaholic but it also produces a high likelyhood of causing you to shoot up a Unitarian church so I don't really suggest that route. I instead suggest you use some of your first world privileges to find what inspires you, and then make a serious effort to make friends and connect with real people. It's far more likely that you're going to get some of that opportunity through nepotism than "hard work" anyway and the benefits to your mental health will be severe.

Quote from: GoLambo
Quote from: Super Aggro Crag
What do you mean? You are aware that people have jobs not in an office that don't require college right?
I could post something snarky about how obtuse you are but instead I'll just be honest and suggest that hey it's pretty unlikely that anyone is going to find a union job at 25 dollars an hour in this country and that's part of why America is a giant soulsucking hell hole. What the OP needs is not bullshit man up bootstraps advice but a fucking supportive social circle.

Quote from: Deteriorata
Hourly-wage jobs are no shame. You can go a long ways in a career working your way up. Managers appreciate workers they can rely on to get important jobs done, so you'll gradually get recognition if you're good.
I want to seriously reiterate what a load of bullshit this is. Do not listen to anyone who regurgitates stuff like this. You're ether exploited for your work or you crony up to advance. Social skills matter a hell of a lot more than a worker bee mentality. In fact, contrarty to what a lot of other posters in this thread seem to think, getting a job is not going to solve your problems. If you end up in a dead end retail position with no friends you're probably going to want to kill yourself more! Self discipline is a lot easier to come by with confidence and motivation. You're going to need all 3, I often suggest boarding your social horizons and forming friendships, especially that plural part. What you learn from that journey is going to last you a lot longer and be much more valuable whatever path you end up taking.

Quote from: GoLambo
Quote from: Super Aggro Crag
What the fuck are you talking about dude? I work along side union laborers everyday. All they do is move material and clean up trash, which is why I suggested it for him.
I'm sorry you live in a giant anecdotal bubble with no meta awareness but union jobs, especially unskilled labor union jobs, are extremely rare in the US. Did I seriously have to show up in this thread to tell anyone this? Have you ever even glanced at D&D? But mainly why are so many people in this thread going on about jobs? How do we even know the OP needs a job so badly? He didn't post anything about getting kicked out or not having money, he posted about not having direction or motivation in his life. Do you all seriously think that work is the number one thing he needs right now?

Man, I'll tell you what really cures my depression guys, getting into the work force for the first time for a career I don't care about with nothing meaningful going on in my life and no prospects for fulfillment in the future. That'll be just the kick in the pants I need to get this gun out of my mouth and stop crying!

Almost all of his posts are in threads that discuss giant robots (mechwarriors) in video games.

gee I wonder who's advice OP should take:

The people with lives that involve going outside and working
OR
the guy telling him about how to achieve happiness who plays escapist robot games

"I didn't care for x because of y and z. I can see how someone else could enjoy it but it just wasn't for me."

goon that lives in parent's basement:

The Something Awful Forums > Main > General Bullshit > E/N Bullshit > Have to work up my nerve to tell a psychiatrist
http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3491811

Quote from: Polybius91
I have a really bizarre fetish. It's one I don't want to have, but when I was growing up I spent all my time in weird-ass communities and got exposed to weird-ass porn, and now I'm stuck with it. While it's not something completely horrible like pedophilia, it's still something I'm terrified at the thought of telling anyone else about in person. The worst part is, since it's pretty unknown outside the internet, I'll probably have to actually go into some detail and explain what it involves.

I'm tired of being a freak, so I'm going to schedule an appointment with a psychiatrist. I'm scared of what will happen, though. What if I lose my nerve and try to dance around the issue or lie about it when the time comes? I have friends with this fetish, will I have to cut ties with them? Is this even something curable?

If everything goes well, I should be able to have the appointment this weekend. Any advice or information I can get would be greatly appreciated. This will be easier if I go into it knowing what to expect.

Quote from: Polybius91
Well, alright. Since a lot of you have asked, and some of you seem genuinely interested in helping me, I'll say it. I don't really care about possibly wasting my  because I just want to be able to deal with this thing. Spoilering it because it's not the kind of thing you want to accidentally see.

 Those of you who said My Little Ponies win the grand prize.


The odd thing is I don't really think about it just watching the show or looking at SFW fan stuff, but when I'm in a porn mood, there's a good chance it's what I'll go for.

I wasn't lying in the OP, by the way. I honestly don't consider it pedophilia or bestiality, and while I know a good chunk of people will disagree, I'm hoping people who agree will try to actually refute my arguments instead of just mocking them. I don't have those urges at all.

If you want to know why this is tearing me up, well, look at the PYF Brony thread. Realize that whenever they talk about the perverts, they're talking about me. Then consider that this is how the vast majority of the world would see me if they knew. I'm just tired of living with the knowledge that a nosy friend or prying father could turn everyone I know against me, and that they'd probably be entirely justified.

This has got to be a troll.

so I looked up dr. thomas wise. he's the director of research at John Hopkins U sexual behaviors consultation unit, but since doesn't give troons what they want (reassurances and drugs with no questions asked), he knows nothing and is literally worse than Hitler. i was trying to find some journal articles that he published but then I realized it's 9 pm on a Monday and who fucking cares

It is not that they are negative.  It is that they have been doing this since 1950, and every tranny is not a special and unique snowflake.  They have almost 70 years of data and studies where they might have figured some shit out.  How to fix triggers.  What they real issues are that push trannies to where they are.  That they are indeed fixable through therapy and possibly are confused right now.  That if they went through the process at Hopkins, they could learn about themselves.  They could possibly be very comfortable in their biological sex.

Quote from: Every Troon
But we already know we are transgendered, and cisgendered-christian-fundie-nazis are trying to take away our ability to put hormones in our bodies that don't belong and have serious, and sometimes irreversible side effects.

Perhaps they are hard on you, because these very hormones/drugs will cause you to go in more bat shit crazy during the "change."  That you may not survive that, or that you may have your clit grown into a rudimentary penis and have your breasts removed to get to your own nirvana only to realize, oh shit, I really was a female.  Life is no better now, and all the special attention I got when I was 25 is nonexistent in my 40's.  I wanted to birth a child and I lost it all.  It's too late! 

Maybe if you really could handle the hopkins process and come out the other side without triggers and tears and med-board-complaints, and you still were resolute to get it done... perhaps, just perhaps that was the whole point and hopkins will make your wildest dreams come true.  You get your Chyna-weenie!

But nope.  This is the age of whim and gimme, gimme!  Work for it?  Test it and practice it before you get it?  Fuck no, you transphobic-conservative-reagan-worshipping-biggot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gender reassignment was and is always supposed to be a last resort, not a weekend in Thailand. 99% of these internet fucks don't seem to get that. This whole tranny thing is a meme, and it's going to go the same way of "all your base" in about 5-10 years, only with thousands or dicks chopped off for no good reason other than someone they've never met other than electronically put the idea in their head.

as expected, goons are unable to apply that amazing brilliance inwards and perform any kind of introspection to realize that nobody fucking cares how smart you are, just how hard you can work and how dependable you are.

gee I wonder who's advice OP should take:

The people with lives that involve going outside and working
OR
the guy telling him about how to achieve happiness who plays escapist robot games
That has always been the theme of those kinds of threads. There might be a few nuggets of good advice and the rest consists of excuse after excuse. Here's an example from another forum I frequent. I was basically talking about how it's better to go to the store and get some fresh food instead of eating at McDonald's all the time.

Quote
Oh good, for a second there I was scared poverty stricken people don't have access to working appliances and the free time needed to devote to cooking all meals.

I'm also happy to find out that there's not a huge dosage of high fructose corn syrup in every goddamn thing in the supermarket.

I'm also ASTONISHED to find out it's a buck for a pound of chicken, and then to show a package that has easily 3-4 pounds of chicken, which SHOULD be 3-4 bucks by itself, and THEN find out you can buy a bag of carrots, four ears of corn, AND a loaf of bread for another 2 bucks, which I will tell you right now is BULLSHIT because I do all my own grocery shopping with my CAG sense in absolute full working order.

To say nothing of the time it takes to clean dishes, which means you need money for soap and sponges, running water that's heated, or access to a dish washer....

And that cooking food greatly reduces its health qualities...

And that non-organic foods are laced with pesticides and cost 2-3 times as much..

I mean really,  that article, unless it is actually 1952 and "golly geepers" is still a current phrase spoken by humans when they read about what Woolworth's is going to have on special this Saturday down in the town square, in which case I need to find out just when and where I broke through the space time continuum.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to plan on what I'll do when I return to the year 2012, which is where I was this morning, so that I can prepare myself to watch a commercial paid for by the subsidized corn growers of America who tell me that HFCS is functionally no different from regular cane sugar "so long as you eat it in moderation," which is awesome, because otherwise I'd be worried if I found out that stuff was highly controlled and restricted to few food items.
And then another poster comes in with the food desert nonsense.

Quote
Plus add the cost of getting to the supermarket. Gas isn't cheap so many poor families try to do all their shopping once a month. Hence they buy less perishable foods and more packaged foods full of sugar and salt. If you live in the inner city then your food choices at the local convenience mart are even bleaker.

Excuse after excuse! The poor can't afford organic food, you monster! And yet people have broken it down for them, with actual receipts and examples of how you can eat healthy on a budget. Nope, it's an untenable situation good sir. You see, these courageous people work 12 sub-minimum wage jobs and don't have to time to cross the Sahara in a heavily subsidized bus to grab some vegetables at the Mexican market. And when food prices go up because the Fed can't keep its hands off the printing press, they are suddenly surprised when food prices go through the roof.

I wonder who is the real racist, people who think brown people can feed their fucking selves and their families without cradle-to-grave assistance or people who think they can't. I have to imagine that if my grandparents embraced the welfare state, they would have not achieved what they achieved in life.

Applying that amazing brilliance in a marketable and realistic way is the hard part. Beating Final Fantasy is hard, passing medical school in three years instead of four is harder. The goon is going to spend those summers banging out some hardcore grinding on a video game instead of getting a year jump on their peers.

Oh, wait, I'm thinking rationally again.

Now, the economy is terrible and I may never be able to afford a house.

The economy is a huge reason why I am houseless. Generation Rent describes me pretty well. Also, due to economy and crap I'm having to forgo marriage, kids, etc... I just can't afford them.

mom i fucking told you that i don't have a girlfriend because the economy is so terrible what part of that don't you get!!!

Saw this on FML
Quote
Today, I foolishly told my husband that I know he's been holding back sexually, and that I was willing to indulge any sexual fantasies he may have. Now it seems that tonight, I'll be responding to the name "Fluttershy". FML

I'm 90% sure that's an MLP reference.

If straight white males are so goddamn privileged, why are goons such miserable failures?

I think I'm starting a Bon Mot thread and this one is the first to go in...

Quote from: Karma Monkey
That's great!  I'd be interested in hearing how this goes. It seems like folks who stick to one gender model generally have an easier time in the workplace than those who wish to be fluid. How often do you think you'll present as female at work? Will you post about your experiences as this progresses? My partner and I are/will be in similar circumstances and I'd like to hear about more genderfluid folks, particularly in the workplace.

Quote from: onecooldan
Gender fluid people get screwed like Bi people do. There's some strange prevailing attitude that they just need to "pick a side". I don't know if it's jealousy or fear of ambiguity that makes people feel this way.

Quote from: A Bagorn
Oh yeah will definitely post a trip report.

I'm not sure how often I'll present at work at this point. I consider myself more genderfluid than bigender, particularly, as even when I feel like a woman I still have masculine thoughts/affectations. In fact recently even on my more feminine days I found myself not wanting to part with my facial hair or the like.

I'm still figuring myself out at this point.

lmao i can't even picture how this works. i know almost all of these people are unemployed because they're mentally incompetent but for a bagorn how does being gender fluid in the workplace operate?

"miss bagorn can you step into my office please to discuss your poor performance reviews"
uh oh, better swap to a more masculine approach to talk my way out of this *pops out fake vagina and plugs in penis like mr. potatohead*

Quote from: aBagorn
First meeting about gender fluidity went well with HR rep.

She understands that at any given time I would want to show up to the office on a spectrum from 100% male to 100% female, but mostly somewhere in between.

She is gonna do some more research, talk with her supervisor, and see at what point it's time that they want to bring my supervisors in on.

Progress at work - check.
Progress at home - more of a work in progress

abagorn is the reason why you shouldn't hire anyone besides cisgendered neurotypicals. otherwise you'll have to acquiesce to progressively more and more ridiculous demands.

how do you deal with someone who flip-flops on what mix of gender they want to be? how many hours of tolerance and awareness training are his coworkers forced to undergo so that they don't incorrectly call him a her on odd weeks and on tuesdays of even numbered months they use the proper tense of "zir" and "ze"? how much effort is made to keep him away from customers so that they don't accidentally misgender him and trigger a shitfit about workplace discrimination?

Quote from: Caesus Maximus
Quote from: Captain Drumline
I'm pretty early in this discussion, but I don't want kids on the off chance that transgenderism is genetic. I just like to play it safe and I don't have a big desire for kids anyway. Not to offend anyone else here.

Edit: Just to be clear, I understand that there is not much research on the genetic basis of transgender people. I'm just being scientifically cautious; it's just in my nature. If there is any scientific evidence to contradict this, I'd be glad to hear it.
I know I am reading too much into this, but I am sort of offended that you think the fact that your potential offspring might end up trans* is justification to avoid ever having children. Is our own existence so distasteful that you'd want to do your part to make sure that we don't multiply?

Also, the latest theory is that a child's gender identity is heavily influenced by hormones from the mother in the womb. There have been identical twins born where one is cis and one is trans. It isn't in the genes, or at least it doesn't express unless specific hormonal triggers occur in vivo.

lmao. "latest theory" without a hint of irony or self-realization that it's a bullshit pop science theory. of course it doesn't even fucking make the least bit of sense because...
1) identical twins are in the same mother's womb at the same time and exposed to the same hormones

2) identical twins don't have 100% identical genetics:
http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=identical-twins-genes-are-not-identical
"For example, one twin in Bruder's study was missing some genes on particular chromosomes that indicated a risk of leukemia, which he indeed suffered. The other twin did not."

3)it completely ignores posted journal articles. Here's one from 2009: "Androgen Receptor Repeat Length Polymorphism Associated with Male-to-Female Transsexualism" http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18962445

"A significant association was identified between transsexualism and the AR allele, with transsexuals having longer AR repeat lengths than non-transsexual male control subjects (p = .04). No associations for transsexualism were evident in repeat lengths for CYP19 or ERβ genes. Individuals were then classified as short or long for each gene polymorphism on the basis of control median polymorphism lengths in order to further elucidate possible combined effects. No interaction associations between the three genes and transsexualism were identified."

tl;dr mtf trannies have less effective testosterone signalling due to genetics (and the study mentions that ftm trannies have more testosterone on average).

they have mental illness as a result of an allele that's longer than those of normal human beings. that's a pretty big deal because treating a mental illness by indulging the patient's fantasy is pretty fucking retarded. you wouldn't tell a schizo that yep there's really CIA agents coming for them. you wouldn't give someone that's suicidal a loaded gun and tell them to do it.

so why the fuck would you take someone who says yep i'm a woman trapped in a man's body and put them on a cocktail of drugs, carve them up into a ridiculous caricature, and say yes, you really are! that's medicine at it's fucking worse. 50 years from now society is going to look back on these ridiculous sexual reassignment surgeries and hormone replacement therapies and put them in the same category as lobotomies, bloodletting, and drilling a hole in someone's head to let out the evil spirits. depraved acts that you look at and say who the fuck would ever think this was a good idea?

TRIGGER WARNING: NORMAL HUMAN SOCIAL INTERACTION

Not GBS per se, but E/N (which I realize is like shooting fish in a barrel, but whatevs):

Quote from: AuguryOwl" post="404839377
I just got chatted up by a guy when I was coming back from the laundry room (sexy.) and, apart from it being a really awkward terrifying experience for me seeing as I hate most social interactions (obviously), I wasn’t sure when to bring in the ‘already taken’ part. I went with him asking me for my number, to which I replied with ‘no, no…’ or something. I can’t really remember. The whole ordeal has become a bit of a blur.

But that got me thinking… did I say that too late? Should I have gone in right from the moment he stated talking to me with ‘BOYFRIEND. SORRY.’ That would have been a bit weird and presumptuous, right? How was I to know, for definite, from that early stage, that he wanted to chat me up?

I’ve been in this situation a number of times (two.) and been too polite/awkward to say anything until they ask for my number and so I kind of have to. Say that I have a partner, I mean…

I still don’t know if this is the right way to go about it, or if the proper way should just be leading with the presumptuous ‘BOYFRIEND’ card right from the word go.

Opinions? Advice? When should you say that you're already in a relationship, without it sounding too presumptuous?

TL;DR: OP recently when through a TERRIFYING AWKWARD ORDEAL which was so traumatizing that she literally oppressed the memory of what she said and did because a guy started talking to her and she was unable to use social cues to determine if he was hitting on her and if she could drop the MY BOYFRIEND to get him to stop his horrible social interaction.

How does someone with such deficient social skills get a fucking boyfriend in the first place? Is she fucking a brony or something?

If straight white males are so goddamn privileged, why are goons such miserable failures?

I think you are a little off on the straight assumption.  Firstly Poly-amorous or bi-sexual describes goons better, because when you are so fat and slovenly that the opposite sex is repulsed by you, you lower your bar quite a bit to get a chance to generate the friction needed to spill some seed with someone besides yourself.  And secondly, if you are very lonely and social inept, and people run in the opposite direction any time you attempt a conversation, a sure-fire way to get some attention on the internet is to claim you are gay or transgendered.  You are instantly a protected and adored species of rare flowers.

Lets rephrase that to just white males, and it will sort itself out.

First off, you patriarchal bastards, she was raped.  Plain and simple.  Have a fucking heart.


Did anyone in that thread confirm that she had said boyfriend, or that she just pulls the boyfriend card to get back to her asexual existent?
