It’s not just Kyoto, I feel so many tourists who visit, even if they don’t know the customs of another country, don’t seem to understand how to comply with even the most basic of common human decencies. The poppy fields in Lake Elsinore, damages to Machu Picchu, the Dali painting in Yekaterinburg, etc. No, you can NOT… Read more
As a few others have said, you are not nearly as interesting, deep, or intelligent as you think you are—but assuming you’re being sincere, I’m going to let you in on a little secret about human relationships:

I’m a mod for a smaller streamer, and personally it’s hard to see the viewer count normally be 20+ down to 9 viewers only. I normally can tell that's it bothering the streamer himself but of course he's gonna pretend to be happy so the rest of chat stays happy. Idk what I could do to help, I'm doing everything a mod… Read more
This is absolutely stomach-turning. Any time someone tells me “rape culture” doesn’t exist (and yes, I know, “well, actually” brigade, she wasn’t raped in this instance), I point to shit like this; a woman can be assaulted—in the US, Japan, or anywhere else—and the onus inevitably comes back to her, even if her… Read more
