    In terms of the Sexpertise question. Girl, a lot of guys including myself prefer small breasts.

    While Hannah was telling us her story of being judgmental in the end, Soap Opera music started playing in the background and I was like, "Is that from the episode? That's a really nice touch to the scene." But then I remembered that my grand-mom just has her T.V. pretty loud and the music was coming from her room. That timing was impeccable though :D

    To the flat-chested young woman from a somewhat older flat-chested woman:  Your body isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea, ever.  Nobody's body is.  Nothing will change this fact.  Your confidence needs to come from you as a person, and not from anyone else's opinions, real or imagined. 


    I can vouch for a couple of facts that might help, though:  There are guys out there who LOVE small boobs.  I promise.  There are also guys who don't give a shit about boob size-- you could have melons or nothing and it just wouldn't matter to them.  And finally, any guy or girl who gives you shit about your body, no matter what it looks like, is not worth you giving them the time of day.  


    Anyway, I think the best things the Always Open cast said here were 1) love yourself first, 2) contrary to mainstream media, guys (and girls) have all different sorts of body preferences, and 3) if someone's shallow enough to criticize your breasts, they can fuck right off.  Take care of yourself, take care of the body you have, have a great time, and let the rest work itself out.

    I completely understand being a little off if you don't frequently hang around a group of people who do, and so you maybe don't know when their joking, or you take something more seriously than they meant it yada yada yada. That being said, I've always had the impression that Hannah Hart is the embodiment of that feeling in every entertainment environment I've watched her work in, even her own cooking show. I don't know her personally at all and I'm sure she's a lovely human being but due to this awkwardness (for lack of the correct term), I personally couldn't finish this episode, and wont be watching the Still Open piece either. Does it matter if I don't? No. But do I agree with a lot of the viewers/First members who sensed this vibe? Yeah. *shrugs*

    Faking an orgasm is stupid, especially if its because the other person can't reasonably deal with a situation where it might not be happening that time. Be honest with your partner.

    flat is justice! seriously though, some guys prefer big, some guys prefer small, for most guys its not a deal breaker either way. of the list of things that really matter, breast size is so low on the list.

    As far as boobs go, it's more about nipple for me. Big or small, as long as I want to lick them and put them in my mouth, it's all good.


    As for worst job... I almost got my skull crushed by a heavy piece of machinery working in a butcher shop. I was moving it to the sink to wash it, the floor was covered in about an inch of water, and my foot slipped on a piece of pig fat. I went down, machine on top of me, and the machine was less than an inch above my head when it came to rest. If anything had been positioned differently, I'd probably not be typing this right now.

    As someone who's had big boobs since I was about 12/13, I think it's true that you always want what you don't have. I feel very self conscious about my boobs sometimes and I've always wanted smaller boobs! I have back ache fairly often, any exercise that involves running or jumping is a pain and it's difficult to find clothes that fit my boobs and the rest of my body without wearing clothes that are too big for me just to accommodate my boobs(particularly as most models for big clothing stores like H&M have smaller boobs and a lot of fashion is based on that body type). I say just try and work with what you've got and love yourself for it, there's no point comparing yourself to everyone else all the time because everybody's different and you're great the way you are  blush.

    Oh man, worst job was by far working for Walmart before I went back to school. Spent four miserable, soul sucking years working at the store in Monroe, NC. That job was a goddamn nightmare. I dreaded going every single day of having to be there. Quitting was one of the best days of my life.


    On the boobs question, boobs are just nice. Big or small, they're nice. Personally, I prefer smaller to bigger, but big boobs are fine, too. Ultimately though, it really doesn't matter how big a girl's boobs are. I want someone who makes me laugh and who I can have fun being around, and boob size has nothing to do with that. Whoever the girl who asked the question is: don't worry about things like that, because anyone judging you on the size of your boobs isn't worth your time. Just look out for someone who makes you happy, and I can promise you that whoever they are, they'll love your boobs exactly the way they are.

    As a straight male: I'm not particularly attracted to large breasts. In fact, I'm probably more attracted to smaller breasts than very large breasts. But overall, it doesn't really matter to me. The only way breast size would really bother me would be if it were changed by surgery. That's extremely unattractive. I'd prefer a flat chest, or really any chest, over a surgically altered chest any day. But if it makes you feel better about yourself, that's your thing. Do what you want. I'm just one measly guy with his own opinions and attractions.

    I thought it was a tad condescending when Hannah Hart went after people who alter their body. Just because you want a sort of implant does not mean "you hate your vessel," nor that "the only way for you to love it is to change it."


    Like maybe someone just wants larger breasts. I know these are societies' standards and that is likely part of the reason that a person is dissatisfied with their body, but that does not necessarily mean that they hate their "vessels." 


    You dyed your hair. Did you hate the way your hair looked before? You know, if changing your natural hair color was the ONLY way for you to love your vessel, than that is completely okay and I totally accept and respect that, because my opinion matters.


    Perhaps it was just a poor soundbite.

    Hate to have this be my only comment, and it's been covered extensively in the comments already, but don't worry about the size of your chest. Personally, it's more about the shape than the size, but personality and face are WAY more important, and I can't be the only person who thinks this way. I get that other guys (and maybe some girls) care about size more, and that's okay. But the simple fact is, you're not compatible with them but there are plenty of people you ARE compatible with, some who really really like them small. 


    You're fine, and it's a stereotype that all guys only like them big. There's more to you than that, and the right people will like those qualities, physical or mental.

    Beers and Cheers to Mariel for living life a little bit louder than most!  beers

    Hey Hannah,.. who said the gay community was small? That's been a stigma for far too long. It was a mixed world 'then', and it's STILL a mixed world 'now'.


    Wow,.. this episode is 'Call-Back' city. Good job on the tie-in's.ok_hand

    All jokes aside, I'd read an autobiography of Mariel. raised_hands


    RWBY has and eventually will bring the world together!


    Where is that Jessica Nigri Shot posted? I WANNA COPY!!!

    Fear not the small breast. Guys love breasts as breasts. We love the varience. We celebrate ALL makes and models. Boobies are boobies, and we drool from small to big. The FACT of boobies is,.. we ALL (guys and girls) love boobies! Boobies, Tittys, Cha-Cha's, Gazongas, Chi-Chi's, etc. You could be 'A' cup, but yer lover is gonna be "Ahhhh YeaAh!" It's about the intimacy, not the bra size.


    (a bigger issue, I truly believe, is how you frame them. This may be why lingerie business make more money in the long run than hack-n-slash surgeons for breast augmentation.)


    Be pretty and proud.

    In my opinion, and I think pretty much any straight male who isn't just trying to have sex with as many women as possible would agree (even if they won't admit it), is that as men, we just want to be loved and give love to another person, we don't care about the physical details, it's about how you make us feel when you are just being your genuine, farting, laughing, happy self, you be you and we will love you, as long as the love is bidirectional, then that is all that matters

    I've always been super uncomfortable with the way I look and it's always made me really anxious and worried about going out and meeting people. Even though I really want to meet new people and go on dates, I can't get the confidence to because I'm scared of giving off the wrong impression or not looking "attractive"

      Hey RobCalland, take a tip from Pyrrah,.. Just be yourself,.. no pick up lines, no witty banter,.. Just be you. Because if you fake yourself,.. you rob yourself from who wants to be with you. You will be surprised who would rather be with a human than an advertisement.

      And as an add-on to that, nothing is more fun than the moments you stop being self conscious, and just be your own goofy, foolish self. If you can't sing, but feel like singing... sing. If you can't dance, but it makes you feel alive... dance. If it makes you feel good, do it. Stop worrying about how other people perceive you, and you'll be amazed at how much happier you are.

    Something I noticed about the body image question was that it was all "I'm afraid of this, my anxiety prevents me from doing that" etc. It's all hypothetical, nothing has actually happened to hurt you or make you afraid. I've lived through extreme anxiety and one of the key things you need to learn is to stop being afraid of imaginary situations before you even attempt something. And the funny thing is, if you bite the bullet and end up getting hurt a few times, you actually become less and less afraid of it happening because you realise it's a lot easier to get over than you previously thought.

    TBH it's quite difficult to get over the fear of getting naked around someone if you have issues with any part of your body. I'm fat and I've always had issues with it, but I've never really been in a situation where someone was turned off by it when we were getting naked. It's all in the head and it's understandable to have issue with things about your body, but just know: if someone wants to get you naked, they're likely not going to be appalled by what's underneath the clothes. And if they are, they're dicks.

    Loved the body positivity chat. Hannah is an absolute gem and definitely shared some things that people need to hear and know deep down inside. I'm not an outright fat positive person because I believe in science and the medical implications of obesity. But I also believe in the science that tells us that harsh judgments from others are just as harmful as ones from ourselves. There is a way to love yourself without vanity and there is a way to care for your body without cutting out every single indulgence, but it's kind of something you have to navigate yourself and also seek support from someone you can trust.

      Appropiately so BardicBrad. Setting medical aside, we can even call on symmetry from the artists mind. let's see if the quote works,.. "There is a way to love yourself without vanity and there is a way to care for your body without cutting out every single indulgence, but it's kind of something you have to navigate yourself and also seek support from someone you can trust."


      Yup,.. still works.

    My first job outta high school was working at a mom and pop video store. One of the few things I think they did right was before I started they actually trained me on how to identify and deal with short changers. Never thought it would happen until one day two years in it did. Two high school yes and a girl came in started renting videos and buying a ton of candy and paid with hundreds, then they started asking for all sorts of different change from each other, from me, and that's when I knew something was up. Long story short, I ended up short changing them during the transaction. My manager who was watching on, totally approved and let me keep the extra change they lost.
