"Gatekeeping" makes it sound like it's a positive quality. It's described as a major failing of the individual, a failure to thrive akin to those other illnesses.
It's not something to put on your profile like "dubstep fan", but something to qualify someone's mental state

By definition, hikkis don't leave their homes for an entire span of six months? I was called a hikikomori IRL by a close relative(who teaches them such words?!) but I didn't care to make an effort to explain the differences between hikkis and NEETs. I do go outside if I feel it's worth my time to go to the store or for a nightwalk; and needless to say I'm not Japanese by blood nor by citizenship.

 No.39154

They say time heals all wounds, but I wonder if that's really true. At least, for hikki's and NEETs, I think particularly bad events leave more of an impression because there's less stimuli to help you forget the pain.

I've made a lot of bad decisions. Stupid things I'd said years ago keep me awake at night, and I pushed away people who probably meant well. It feels like guilt and regret over things I've done will eat me alive lately.

I'm still alive. I do have a cat though, so I'm not all that alone.
I've tried so many times to leave this lifestyle, but I collapse like Satou when things get too real. Meeting people, talking, doing things together, maybe one day. A job though, I don't think I could ever get. Even if I tried and overcame my fears I don't think anyone would want me. 10 years of no work. No real world skills. Uncharismatic. Socially stunted. I'm more pitiful than Satou. Can dream of a Misaki coming to rescue me, but I know better than that. If I want it I'll have to make it happen myself.

>>39146
While I think it's somewhat strangely specific in this example (bipolar, really?) and it doesn't differentiate much more than if it's by choice or by illness, but gatekeeping is important. I have witnessed far too many labels get completely blurred and communities subverted completely. Gatekeeping is not inherently bad. I'd argue it's usually more positive than negative when it comes to definitions.
There's a neet board out there with one anon very insistently trying to push his idea of part-time neets which is just ridiculous.

... I don't know how I am holding up.
On one hand, I don't like living where I am and for many reasons it's untenable but on the other hand I might be able to leave this eventually and buy my own house due to a government policy to get people into the housing market here, but that would be next year at the least, possibly even more if I have to build it as well. If that happens then my perfect life will be achieved, but it's the wait and the anxiety of not knowing if this will happen that is irritating.

There is no more inexcusable act to the average person than shutting yourself in; people have compassion with thieves, drug dealers and other shady folks for whatever noble-seeming motives they have and how much friendliness those people(most of the time they are functional) occasionally express to their surroundings when they don't sacrifice other peoples' goods and health for their own benefit. A living person naturally sympathizes with somebody who does something to feel alive, even if it's morally wrong; it's much harder and less promising to have faith in a person who is preparing for death.

I've never worked a real job in my life; it's not so bad. I find interesting projects to pass the time away.

Lately, I've been working on modding MMD models into World of Warcraft. I'd been banging my head on it for a month, but I finally got it all figured out recently. WoW modding is extremely difficult, and it's kind of pointless, but it's cool to know it's my own little one-of-a-kind thing even if it is a bit silly. I've ported a few 2hus and other girls already.

Glad you think it's cool anon. There's a lot you can do - for example, weapons and shields will show up on your character. You could replace the Lich King's head with Cirno, and so on. WoW's main strength is that so many different types of skeletons means nearly any character can be ported over relatively well unlike a lot of games. For example, shimmy or other small characters can be rigged on a dwarf or gnome skeleton. It could act as a poor man's open-world touhou RPG.

>Are you going to post your method somewhere so others can turn Azeroth into Gensokyo?
That's what I was planning, as well as uploading my models, though I'm unsure of where a good place to do so would be. Sadly an old netoge like WoW isn't too popular, else I'd be tempted to actually try to do something with this.

Most of it is done via hex editing, so there's a lot I'm still learning myself, it's a bit of trial and error, but it's fun seeing what I can get away with.

I remember like a decade ago there was ERP-focused modding that relied on model swaps and stuff. For instance if you wanted to give your female draenei a penis you needed to equip a certain dagger or something. So apparently a non-modder would see high level characters with a crappy low level dagger and might be confused why. hehehe
