  1. Rave: I graduate college in 5 days!

    I am now a college graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science. :DDDDD
  2. Its finally happening! After 18 consecutive years of school, I'm finally about to be done with it all! 5 days from now, I will be graduating college with a Bachelor's in Computer Science! I've finally done it! It feels weird. I started posting back on FAF back in highschool. It feels weird knowing you all from when I was an underage highschool student and now still being here after all this time being a college graduate about to step out into the world. Its really exciting though! Plus it just...feels good to be done with it all. College was hell for me and I think school stressing me out was a large part of what brought on my depression. I've been in a rough spot for a while but finally...finally it'll all be over. No more worrying about homework. No more worrying about tests. I go to work, come home from work, and I don't need to think about work anymore! And considering my plans, this should cure my loneliness too! I plan on moving to the big city, Boston MA, after I graduate. Heading up north and finally being away from the sticks and in the big city is like a dream come true, and I'll be all on my own! I do have a friend that lives in the area but this is the first time I'm making such major decisions myself! Getting an apartment, roaming the big city...I'll finally be able to do things and make choices for myself. Picking my own clothes, going where I wanna go when I want to, having a room to myself...I'm so happy! 5 days is all that's left!

  5. Halo 1, 2, 3, ODST, 4, and Reach are coming to Steam

    Halo AMA happening on /r/gaming right now! https://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/b2yhk8/mcc_pc_halo_reach_and_halo_insider_ama/
  6. https://store.steampowered.com/app/976730/Halo_The_Master_Chief_Collection/ The Halo Master Chief Collection is coming to PC via Steam and Windows Store with Reach included! Additionally it was announced that these games will be releasing individually, with Reach being the first release to occur, and people will be able to buy these games individually. https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/mcc-pc-halo-reach Features will include 60fps and 4k HDR support along with a supposed slew of other PC-specific options! I'M HYPE I've never really played the Halo games outside of 1 at a friend's house for a bit many many years ago. I don't even normally play shooters but I had so much fun back then I really wanna give these a try.
  7. Holy-o-fuck

    I just wanna have a place that doesn't have a 240 character limit that lets people discuss topics that don't magically vanish down a feed over time due to age and/or other people talking. Discord and Twitter suck Twitter actively discourages discussion, instead encouraging people to dunk on each other or post shitty reaction images or one word replies or block/mute anyone you don't like. In turn this has the effect of making people stop knowing how to engage with each other as humans, thus damaging one's communication ability. It also encourages young people and older people to engage in the same communities and that's really bad. Tired of running into 15 year olds yelling at adults. Discord encourages shitty inclusive communities of likeminded people whilst forcing topics to constantly change, thus resembling more of a casual conversation than any ongoing discussion. TL;DR: Old woman yells at cloud

    Dissidia NT has gone free-to-play! https://store.steampowered.com/app/921590/DISSIDIA_FINAL_FANTASY_NT_Free_Edition/
  9. Watcha Playing, Phoenix?

    Rimworld is surprisingly addictive. A friend gifted me it and forming a colony and trying to survive on such a rough planet is really fun. Preparing for all sorts of terrors, handling whatever comes your way...its great. Its a good storyteller too. Finally feel like I'm getting the Dwarf Fortress experience but in a game with a UI that doesn't make me want to die. On my own adventures, Bodyguard Gee of the Republic of Weebs in Kitty Town, whom of which is incapable of being social, threw a party after the local nurse successfully groomed a prisoner into joining our colony.
  10. WTF

    I've seen this one before https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/mayor-denies-discriminating-against-furry-councilman-forced-to-resign They found this man's Flist and it included "tolerates 'rape'" His people burned him at the stake so to speak The bastards ...Fair enough. No one would dare argue about such a thing publicly irl, lest they risk ostracization. (Unless you're speaking to the right group of people of course; I am lucky enough to have irl friends that endorse my views)
  11. The Knight of Flower, Dakini

    Chapters 7-9 now have a Kickstarter up to get translated! And its already been funded with 27 days left! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shibamotosho/web-manga-flower-knight-dakini-ch-7-9-crowdfunding
  12. The Knight of Flower, Dakini

    The Knight of Flower, Dakini is a Japanese furry webmanga created by the award winning mangaka Sho Shibamoto (Pandemonium: Wizard Village, Tsunousagi) about an aspiring artist losing his will to draw whose life is changed after he meets a warrior who is willing to fight after the town he lives in is attacked by ferocious supposedly indestructible monsters known as Sky Golems. The story is supposed to continue what was set up in his previous works and finally end the tale of the Sky Golems. To describe it from the mangaka himself: Now you might be thinking "But Battlechili, its not in English. Even if I was interested, I can't read it!" Well, as a matter of fact, Recently, Sho just launched a Kickstarter to have Dakini translated into English! This will be the first manga of his since Pandemonium to be translated into English if successful. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shibamotosho/webmanga-flower-knight-dakini-crowdfunding-for-eng I thought this manga looked gorgeous personally and I was thinking maybe, just maybe some others here might find it interesting, so I thought I'd share. Pandemonium was a wonderful if tragic story, and this looks to be more of that, so I'm excited. What do you all think? I've seen some people don't personally care for the art. Just to give you a taste, here's an example of some art and content in his manga taken from his Kickstarter:

    You're not wrong, its just that forums are the far superior medium and allowing them to die will only cause the internet to further destroy itself
  14. Holy-o-fuck

    It is my goal to be the last person posting here and on FAF, so fear not! Your friendly neighborhood Chili will be here to the end! As for others, most people are on Discord these days. I recommend adding people on Discord if you wanna keep up with them.

  18. WTF

    Not talk people out of disgust; just out of assuming the worst in people. To convince people that maybe someone isn't what they think they are, and that something isn't as harmful as one would first assume. That the immediate connections someone may make about a topic aren't necessarily the correct ones. Which I've already successfully done before. There's no such thing as a human that can't be reasoned with; all you need to do is explain things in a way that someone can understand. Sure, you might fail, and in fact most of the time you will. But it IS entirely possible to convince someone to reconsider their stance on something they're disgusted by, and such has happened before. I know someone from this very forum who's had a complete change of heart on such content even, so I know you're wrong. But if you don't try, if you don't even bother making an attempt, you've guaranteed failure. The world isn't what I want it to be, and its my duty as a resident of this world to do my best to change it for my perception of what is better. I will most certainly not succeed, but if I can do even a little bit, change a couple people's minds, that is enough.
  19. WTF

    I think its very productive to try and explain to people the nuance between different kinds of fetishistic content, especially when to not do so would allow the ostracization of innocent people. 16k is babby's play for me I'd like to write an essay on this topic someday. This is definitely not an admittance that I'm terrible at being succinct

  21. The Pokemon Thread

    Pokemon Sword and Shield announced! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdA22Lh6Rwk I'm really glad this one actually looks like a significant improvement over Let's Go graphically. It actually looks like a Switch game!
  22. Resident Evil 2 Remake

    Anyone play this? It came out earlier this month and I'd argue its the best horror game out there with tons of replayability. Its like if you took RE4's gameplay and combined it with the puzzle-solving/exploration/tension/horror/low-ammo conservation of older RE games. I finished Claire A and Leon B recently and its amazing how faithful this game is to RE2 while giving it a massive overhaul graphically and in terms of quality of life improvements. Plus it just keeps getting new free bonus DLC campaigns akin to Hunk's campaign which is great for speedrunning. Also Mr. X. The constant thumping you hear throughout the police station while you're walking around, wondering where he is...I love it.
  23. WTF

    You are not. However I have to answer this question with a question: Which would you be more upset with someone posting here: pictures of real humans being murdered and decapitated, or anime art of such? Is the former even allowed to be posted even in Red Lantern? If the dissonance and distance from reality does not matter, why even make the distinction between severity? I'd almost feel the need to point out the French art piece "The Treachery of Images" which argued that drawings are not the same thing as the actual things and should not be treated as such. As he put it, a drawing of a pipe is not a pipe as it cannot function as a pipe nor was it ever functional as a pipe (not a photo). That its just a representation. Or do you believe people sexually interested in guro artwork are sexually attracted to pictures of real people being murdered? Or at risk of normalizing such behavior in their minds? There's a basis in reality, but only in that they have character traits that they represent in the real world. There are traits that let you recognize these things as being representations of trees, of men, etc. But those aren't the only traits there, and the traits that aren't there are just as important. Do you not think there are people out there that maybe dislike penises unless they have those weird neon colors people put in such as you described? If so, why? If something's a penis, that would be enough right? After all, its a representation of one. Why focus on the specifics? I've seen people argue that these characters aren't even really "children" but just "characters". I'm not entirely sure I believe that because I do understand what you're saying that these drawings are tagged because they have some basis in reality. But at the same time, I legitimately would argue that people attracted to say, loli/shota/cub art, are not viewing this art in the same way they would view an actual child. They are very much seeing them more as "characters" in the sense that they can't take them seriously and view them as children. Because the characters with childlike traits are "cute" too. Just a kind of cuteness that doesn't exist in the real world (once again, I'd reference Japanese kawaii culture). I like cute anything. Cute adult characters are great. I'm saying that "cuteness" is attractive. What traits the characters in art have don't matter so much as that they're "cute", with a kind of overexaggerated perfect cuteness that doesn't exist in the real world (aforementioned explanations on how this art is typically drawn differently from realistic characters is what I'm referring to here) Sexually directed at themselves with traits of a child, not at children themselves. The idea isn't that children are attractive, its that the idea of being treated as a child and reminiscing about what its like to be a child is attractive. Which is still conceptually different ideas that don't imply a sexual attraction to children (or rather, there's no evidence to suggest from such an attraction that said people could look at an actual child and find them attractive as what is being fetishized is not children". Not exactly; I realize it looks like this, but I actually left for entirely different reasons. I had gotten banned on another site because I had an account on KF, with them saying that by going there I was encouraging and supporting a culture of harassment and doxxing. Since I didn't want to be viewed in that manner, I left, and in the end I came to agree. I don't know how I didn't see it in the beginning, but I don't wanna be associated with harassment and KF is basically a harassment forum that hides under the guise that they're the good guys or are just getting a laugh. I keep to myself in only that I don't talk about my fetishes everywhere and only save them for relevant topics; I'm open and non-secretive in that respect because I legitimately do not view this as having pedophillic interests. Because of this, I see no reason to "hide" myself, as to hide one's self would to imply they believe they're doing something wrong or are into something shady. Because I'm passionate about it Do you know how frustrating it is to frequently be accused of being a pedophile, of people suspecting I might be a danger to children? Or to see people you look up to and admire be ostracized and harassed for ages putting them into constant emotional turmoil when you see them as innocent? To know that people want to and are trying to get rid of the things that bring you comfort and joy? Its tiring and continuously frustrating seeing people refer to or look at this kind of thing the way they do, as if they understand what's going on in my mind and making assumptions about how I view the world. I'm tired of seeing artists I like in the West being ostracized and harassed endlessly for something that, in other fandoms, is outright celebrated. I don't want to see artists getting hurt. I want to see them create to their hearts content, to support their work and see what other wonderful things they draw. But these wonderful things, these things that make me go "d'aww" or "Wow!" are the same things that make other people go "what the fuck?" or "this shit's disgusting ban this". And I hate this. Seeing artist's hard work and creaitivity being thrown away as immoral garbage is simultaneously depressing and infuriaiting, and I hate the idea of standing idly by and letting it happen. That's why its so hard for me to shut up whenever this topic comes up. I'm tired of seeing real people get hurt over content that isn't. I'm tired of seeing people making assumptions about me without taking the time to actually understand my thought process and how I view the world.
