I’ve battled anxiety and depression today, I’m likely headed for a turbulent night of sleep, but I didn’t have a drink today and that feels good.
There are some things I’m putting off right now in favor of resting and recovering and I feel some guilt over that.
I can survive my feelings and my internal world without a drink and tonight I’ll go to bed sober.

2021.11.29 00:17 Lavinrac_ Things i need to clarify
Reposted to change the title.
One of the most common arguments on the internet used to defend or attack media is "politics", that politics should not be on entertainment, and how anime and manga are apolitical, unlike those "woke" western shows and comics, and needless to say, this argument is fundamentally flawed and fallacious on multiple levels.
First of all, what anime are you guys watching that is apolitical? This may apply to generic school slice of life (only superficially, as im going to talk later), but a LOT of popular anime have heavy politic themes, even shonen like FMAB and HxH deal with political stuff, what is the Chimera Ants arc if not politics?
Second, what does "political" means? Leftist propaganda? It means politics that you don't agree with? If that is the case, you are using the wrong terminology, what you actually mean with this is political propaganda.
Politics (from Greek*: Πολιτικά, politiká, 'affairs of the cities') is the set of activities that are associated with* making decisions in groups*, or other forms of* power relations between individuals, such as the distribution of resources or status
Propaganda is communication that is primarily used to influence an audience and further an agenda*, which may not be* objective and may be selectively presenting facts to encourage a particular synthesis or perception, or using loaded language to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information that is being presented.
With those two concepts separated, lets talk about politics in anime, and what better example than Monster (and pretty much anything from Naoki Urasawa).
In Monster, you have a story set in Germany a few years before the fall of the Berlin Wall, about a doctor that chases a murderer that he operated as a kid instead of the mayor because he got guilty after letting a turkish immigrant die, because the corrupt hospital staff told him to operate a wealthy man, and eventually it is told that the boy he operated was used in neonazi experiments, HOW IS THAT NOT POLITCAL??? MONSTER IS POLITICAL IN ITS CORE.
What anti-political arguments fail to realize is that politics are inherent to humanity and society, and that there is no such thing as an apolitical story. Stories are written by humans, with whatever ideas they have in their minds, and such ideas have base in their opinions on society and politics, which means that apolitical storytelling is impossible, if the story has any type of lesson or discussion it is already political.
2: The other side of the spectrum
You know, the famous "SJWs" (i hate this term btw, its a fucking strawman, dont use it if you have braincells), people that cancel some pieces of art they consider problematic, because art cannot tackle sensitive issues, except that NO, that is exactly the point of art, talking about things, concepts, social issues, art is language and should not be restricted.
"But what if a certain story has assault and pedophilia?"
The problem i have with this type of criticism is, its too easy and superficial. Sure, its right, but, its like talking about the sky and ending the conversation after saying that the sky is blue, everyone knows that the sky is blue, you hadn't bring anything new or deep about the topic with this argument. Its easy to say that Shinobu from Monogatari being a 600 year old vampire is just the author's excuse to sexualize a child, but can you explain me the nuances and philosophies behind Shinobu's complex character arc?
But you know what is worse? When people blame the author for just using those concepts in a series.
A famous example of this would be the widely criticized scene of The End of Evangelion, the scene where scene masturbates to comatose Asuka, a scene that people problematize without even trying to understand it. Evangelion is not romanticizing what Shinji did, he is supposed to be a terrible person for multiple narrative reasons.
More examples? Mononoke, in the Umibouzu arc, the sister of the monk had incestuous feeling towards him, and at the end of the arc, it was revealed that the monk was the Mononoke the whole time, driven by the guilt of the death of his sister, and he got exorcised by the Medicine Seller. And in the Zashiki-Warashi arc, where the inn used to be a brothel where pregnant prostitutes were forced to abort their babies, and the spirits of the babies became Mononoke. Instead of portraying social issues in a good light or in a moralistic way, it portrays those topics in a more complex light, like "those thing exist, they may be bad but what can we do?", it is subtle an open to interpratation, respecting whatever views you have about such topics.
Another example is one of my favorite manga (the one in my pfp), Asaki Yumemishi: Genji Monogatari by Waki Yamato, adaptation of the 1000+ years old novel Genji Monogatari by Murasaki Shukibu. In the story, the protagonist, prince Hikaru Genji has affairs with multiple women, including the 2nd wife of his father (which he impregnated) and Lady Murasaki, which he adopted as a child and raised her to be his ideal woman, also known as grooming, and he slept with her when she was 14 (the manga has no violence and sexualization if you are curious, read it). How terrible, so, it this Yamato or Shikibu's fault for using pedophilia in their stories? No, it was Genji's fault, this is his character, Hikaru Genji is an asshole, he makes a lot of mistakes, slowly ruining his life and other's lives, he is supposed to be flawed, and this conflict is exactly what makes the story so complex.
The author's mistakes and the character's human flaws are completely different things, which most peple don't seem to realize.
"But what about series that are obviously offensive and disgusting like Redo of Healer?"
Redo of Healer may be atrocious in every aspect, but it has all the right to exist and should not be censored, art SHOULD be allowed to be bad and offensive, that's why criticism exist, the author can be as bad as he wants, just like how the public can criticize the author as much as they want, so the author is not free from the consequences of his writing mistakes, and we as the public need to have bad examples to criticize and learn from.

2021.11.29 00:17 sirwormingtoniii considering open relationship; advice needed :( 19f 18m
Hello, me (19f) and my boyfriend (18m almost 19) met in high school almost 2 years ago. We also have almost been dating for 2 years coming up next month.
I have had some small experiences with relationships in the past. None of them I would ever count as a "real" relationship, as in they were more middle-school things than anything. My past experiences were either middle school crushes that were reciprocated, we said we were "dating" and then didn't really do anything, or they were talking phases that did not really go anywhere. I've had people ask me out and try to flirt with me and get into relationships with me, so while it isn't much, I've had some sort of experience relationship-wise.
Me and my boyfriend both love each other and want a future with each other. However, he lacks relationship experience outside of me, period. I lack it as well, not as much as him, but I am not that developed either.
This brings me to my question that I really need advice on:
Me and my bf are each other's first relationships. We got lucky and fell in love the first time and want a future with each other. However, we both want more experiences sexually and romantically with others since we're young and it's the perfect time, but we don't want to leave each other and get jealous over the thought of each other with someone else. I don't want to tie him down and force him to settle so early, but I'm not sure if an open relationship is the way to go. What should we do?

2021.11.29 00:17 mlipintime How to get out of academic burnout?
I'm feeling super burned out (kinda leftover from last year) and I'm behind in my classes. I really can't afford to fail or do bad in my courses and I have exams and group projects coming up that make up a good chunk of my grade.
Any tips for getting out of this rut?

Was just wondering what people are getting for firewood now. Prices for green stuff, either rounds or split if possible. Came into more than I can use in 2 years, so I'm not against selling some if the prices are decent. Any help, info, or interest would be appreciated.

It has been dated to 27.51 Ma ago. Curiously, there was an extinction afterward.
