It is an insult to the progress of higher learning that what the student body does outside of classes is a highlight of the overall college experience than anything else. I attended as a foreign exchange student in 2017, and even four years ago the majority of the local Japanese students loathed their time spent here. They claimed a lack of cultural ambition on the faculty's part. So not many events to intercultural exchange happen on campus. It is Japan on the Japanese' home turf, so the intention of opening to culture is moot. Every so often, so anytime outside of COVID, the campus regularly hosts trips to various areas of Kansai. And when this does not happen, taiko performers and interpretive dancers flood campus every season. I think the problem is is that the foreign students set an irresponsible example when they arrive. They purport that going out to izekaya and karaoke to drink obsessively is the superior college experience.

I am a man of God. And as such, one of the core tenets of Christianity is that the meek shall inherit the earth. This ideal clearly did not translate to this website. Some on here even regard such thinking as unrealistic and primitive. I have struggled all my life with positive social interaction. Not entirely my fault, but my tragedy. I am on the autism spectrum. So I frequent this website daily, and much the same problems occur: being largely ignored in favor of young people talking about their romantic woes. It seems that the site is predicated on a sort of mental illness hierarchy. Some problems generate more responses than others. And if no one on the website can assist in offering even a kind, non-judgemental ear, mods refer participants to crisis management as a vapid default. I feel like this website is far from egalitarian in its appeal. And as can be the case, it has worsened my paranoia. I also struggle to sleep comfortably at night dwelling on said paranoia. And I was banned from the site, only being allowed back after submitting a statement to improve my behavior. I did not adhere to this rule. It seems that the admins of the site have developed a certain superiority complex. So already severe mental conditions can worsen if someone falls prey to this website's "unpredictability".

Tip for consumers:
Go somewhere safer.

Products used:
Free conversation and paid therapy.
