Here are my current mantids. I say they are “famous” because they’ve been quite a sensation on TikTok:

These two images above are Phoenix the devil’s flower, who unfortunately, recently passed away.

Below is Pandora, also devil’s flower.

And last, below is Eileen, my female parablepharis kuhlii.

Also, I do have about 10-15 ghost mantis nymphs as well, but I won’t post them. And for anyone who might be interested in my TikTok, my username is whooper34!

followed!
I have mantis content on my tik tok as well, along with some other things that are less pleasant. I'm gonna start stitch-responding to fat apologist (i-mean, activist) cringetoks
Thanks for the follow! I’ve had a lot of my videos reported for “violent and graphic content” and I’ve had to appeal 🙄 One was a video of me cleaning a bird skull with peroxide, one was a memorial video to my dead devil’s flower, and the other was me pinning it. There is way worse content on TikTok than that!

bug-cats or cat-bugs? That is the real question.

like the people who say it's healthy to be 384729lbs and that obesity is caused by ANYTHING except being a glutton. I'd rather see pro-ana content because starving yourself is way harder than stuffing yourself
Granted while I imagine your statement about you rather seeing pro-anorexic content is overexaggerated (or whatever word there is for saying something but not actually meaning), it's still a statement that struck a nerve for me. I've had more than one friend who struggled to even eat a bite of food and starved themselves for days. I begged and begged for them to eat but there was nothing I could do because I was hours away.
I know you have had your own issues with food, but your statement is nothing something I can take lightly unfortunately. Please don't make those sorts of comparisons in the future. For some people, eating is almost impossible.
Sorry for getting off topic as well. I imagine you don't want your thread about this sort of topic Hooper.

tongue and cheek is the term you're looking for
remember I was almost kicked out of college for not eating, and I almost had to be hospitalized for being underweight. I do find it aggravating that ostensibly undereating on social media is against most platforms' TOS but ostensibly overeating isn't. I blame the food industry

nice pics, why all of a sudden weight is the subject?
tik tok has a lot of pro obesity content
the topic was tik tok

i should also say that people don't become anorexic from pro ana content, they become anorexic from trauma and things like that. not that i agree with pro ana content though
