    Got an email from who I can only guess is drew asking for confirmation of whether I have relieved my two jackets. So it looks like wheels are still turning over there.

    A somewhat good sign for those still waiting on jackets.

    This. I've worked with a decent number of models and women who are in magazines or whatever. Not only is there a ton of makeup and styling work, but the photos are doctored, a lot. The shape of the body is changed in subtle and not so subtle ways (for example, the natural small belly that pretty nearly all women not in a very narrow body type range have, is nearly always taken out), and cheekbones are often raised. There are women without cellulite, no doubt, but even professional athletes with pretty pretty low BF have it.

    dude, i'm in my last year of college. of course i've taken courses of that sort - cultural standards, ideas of self-image, ego/ethnocentricity and whatever else, i get

    don't condescend to me on the basis of my being young either, since, if anything, the lot of you need to work on being less uptight and sensitive (funnily enough the diminishments of which are supposed to come with being older)



    but regardless, to address both you and tradernick:


    1. no, you can't just deem something a non-issue by the sole virtue of its being "natural", nor is there anything wrong with subscribing to cultural standards (since everybody does it, anyway). is cellulite aesthetically unpleasing - yes or no? much like something like acne and an oily complexion, which i personally have, it's not. consequently, i, as well as many others, do a lot to both combat and subdue that shit, despite its being "natural".

    whether or not our complexions are something we're ashamed of due to cultural standards or our own insecurities is irrelevant - it's seen as an issue by many and that's that.


    i mean, i don't even get where you guys are trying to go with this "but it's natural!" argument since, like i mentioned above, everybody subscribes to cultural standards.

    it's "natural" to grow hairs in your unibrow area.
    it's "natural" to grow long, visible nose hairs.
    it's "natural" to have oily hair.
    it's "natural" to not smell like soap, deodorant, cologne/perfume, and/or whatever else.
    it's "natural" to grow out your facial hair indefinitely (whether man or woman!).
    etc.

    are you telling me that neither you nor tradernick partake in any grooming or hygiene upkeep of any kind because you guys both embrace "natural" so much and don't believe in what society deems attractive?

    do you two (assuming you're both straight) not find it unattractive when a woman has a hairy upper lip or hairy pits or whatever? cause it'd be hypocritical not to by your guys' own words.


    so yeah, if somebody suffers from something that i and many others find visually unappealing, like cellulite, or acne, or early balding, or whatever else, then yes, i'm gonna feel bad cause i don't live in a vacuum devoid of culture and i'm a naturally sympathetic person



    2. geez, fashunz is just a part of what i spend my not-spent-on-food money on. and where did i ever claim that what i'm doing is "normal"? seriously, quote where i did (or even implied it).


    is this what happens when i grow older? start putting shit in others' mouths (maybe literally too!)? can hardly wait






    ... yeah, that's cutting down, bro

    i'll own up to it being stupid or whatever, but for the current me it works

    didn't know that most women eventually develop it

    THE NEW OFFICIAL TOJ THREAD - UPDATES, COMPLAINTS, AND NOW WITH 80% MORE CELLULITE.

    The thread title needs to be as dynamic as the TOJ exchange thread.

    You should write a book about how you turned cookies into a leather jacket.

    Cutting out the cookies with all that refined sugar would probably help out with the acne problem [​IMG]

    every single time I check this thread, I swear I'll never read it again. Every single time. And I can't do it, so I click, and every single time I do, this thread has hit a new low.

    I bet you felt the same after every episode of Lost. But it keeps dragging you in, the TOJ sun consumed all its fuel and only left this black hole of a thread where the concentrated mass of cool kids are randomly warping private memes across the fashionsphere.

    I think masshi might have autism or something and is honestly clueless about how dumb he seems to normal human beings

    This is just as bad, if not worse, than the cellulite comment.

    i wasn't being mean

    i genuinely felt bad since, as somebody who also has virgin issues, i can empathize

    lighten up and don't perceive everything so negatively

    The long post above by masshi is one of the most incoherent things I've ever read, on the internet or anywhere else. It signals the end of my participation here. The pathos in this thread has been something to see

    Good luck to those who still wait for jackets/other product. We can only hope that one day, those who orchestrated this monumental fuck-up and didn't even have the decency to provide a mea culpa get a bit of payback.

    I wouldn't be a virgin anymore if I had gotten the leather jacket I ordered 2 years ago
