2020.09.18 16:47 BuckRowdy [Update] The rise and fall and the depths of depravity of pedophile Jared Fogle from Subway.

This is an updated and edited version of a post I originally submitted at /redditcrimecommunity. It's been updated with the latest info.
I used to be kind of obsessed with the idea of Jared from Subway. He always seemed like nothing more than wallpaper in a commercial, a guy whose job amounted to holding up a comically giant pair of pants for seconds at a time in commercials. How much do you think they paid that guy to do that?
I used to search to see if I could find out Jared's salary or his net worth because to me it seemed like he had the easiest job in the world. Just stand there and smile, hold up the giant pants, shake a few kids hands at store openings and other corporate promotional events; essentially play the character of Jared from the Subway commercials.
The Midwestern everyman who once weighed over 425 pounds and lost it all by eating at Subway every day. Of course the fine print at the bottom of the screen gave the wider context to his weight loss routine, but there was a much wider, much darker context to Jared's story that would only be revealed years later.
Jared started working for Subway in 2000. By 2005 they had stopped featuring him in commercials and their sales declined by 10%. They quickly reinstated him and he was a fixture ever since.
It is true that Jared did lose the weight, and he did do it in part by eating at Subway.
At this point it would be reasonable to ask how did he get the money as a college student to eat all his meals at Subway?
Because he was running a porn video rental business out of his apartment at the time and had an extensive collection. You've got to remember that this was in an era where media of all types was more difficult to obtain. You didn't have everything at your fingertips back then.
Subway opened up on the ground floor and Jared was lazy so he started eating all his meals there.
The rest of Jared's story is marketing mythology. A friend wrote an article in the student newspaper that got published in Men's Health which caught the eye of Subway's marketing department. Jared started working for Subway in 2000 and up until about 2007 it appeared to be a marketing master stroke. That's when the reports started trickling out. In 2007, TMZ published the story about the porn rental business.
We'd learn later that as early as 2008, Subway had received serious reports about Jared from a franchisee in Florida that Jared had befriended at a few store openings. Cindy Mills, the franchisee said:
"He would just tell me he really liked them young," she says. Fogle and Mills had a sexual relationship, which lead Fogle to disclose disturbing details of his criminal activity in lewd text messages.
Mills says she tried to blow the whistle by phoning ad executive Jeff Moody — then CEO of the Subway Franchisee Advertising Fund Trust (SFAFT) — after Fogle had told her that he had sex both in Thailand and the US with child prostitutes between the ages of 9 and 16 years old. According to Mills, Moody stopped her mid-conversation and said, "Don't worry, he has met someone. She is a teacher and he seems to love her very much, and we think she will help keep him grounded." Mills also claims she spoke with two more SFAFT execs after Moody, but ran into more dead ends.
Jared was up to no good for years, but his world really started to crumble in 2015 with the arrest of Russell Taylor. Taylor was Jared's partner in his non-profit charity and he was just as bad as Jared if not worse.
Russell Taylor, the former director of Fogle's anti-childhood obesity foundation, was arrested in April [of 2015] on three counts of possession of child pornography, three counts of child exploitation, and three counts of voyeurism.
Taylor had gotten in trouble for texting a woman a picture of bestiality and suggesting such between the two of them. It's a sick thing to think about, but that's just what Jared and Russell were up to.
In one of those text messages, according to the affidavit, “Russell Taylor asked her if he and another adult female she identified could come to Jane Doe’s residence and engage in” an act of bestiality. The woman did not agree to that request, but told investigators “you could tell (Taylor) was serious.” She also told investigators that “she received an image file via text from Russell Taylor that depicted (another act of bestiality).”
Jared's house was raided and the rest quickly became history. Subway dropped him. Sharknado 3 dropped him. Jared accused Taylor of fraud and sued him. One quarter of the funds of the charity were unaccounted for, and the only money they ever paid out went to Taylor's $73k salary.
I'm no professional but it's hard not to draw the conclusion that Jared was paying Taylor to produce child porn with a non profit charity.
The world found out about Jared in 2015, but in 2007 and 2008 two women were finding out a lot about Jared.
Jared had met a franchisee in Florida and started a sexual relationship with her. She called the FBI when Jared started texting stuff like this:
In one series of texts sent from April 2008, Fogle tries to convince the franchisee, a woman, to advertise herself for sex on Craigslist. She could make $500 per act he explains and he could watch her have sex with other men. Fogle then goes on to apparently admit to paying for sex with a 16-year-old girl off Craigslist.
The woman franchisee writes: "Is this the same website you found that 16 year old you that you f---ed?" the woman replied, according to an affadavit.
  • "I still can't believe you only paid $100 for her."
  • Fogle reponds: "It was amazing!!!!"
  • "What part of her ad made you think she was selling sex?" the woman asked.
  • Fogle says "U will have to read them to see."
The woman got a lawyer and submitted the texts to Subway who sat on them.
Around the same time, Jared met Rochelle Herman Walrond, a journalist who initially remained anonymous, who came forward and said that she got suspicious about Jared when he called middle school girls hot
According to the woman, Jared would often visit schools in Sarasota County, and allegedly told her numerous times that, 'Middle school girls are hot.'"
She contacted the FBI who asked her to wear a wire. She went on to record Jared over a nearly 5 year period, pleading with the FBI to go ahead and arrest him with them always saying that they didn't have enough evidence and needed more.
So she tried to get Jared to incriminate himself. Over that 4.5 year period they talked about a lot of stuff, like that Jared wanted to fly to Thailand to have sex with children.
"I would fly all three of us clear across the world if we need to,"[Jared] says on the tape. "It would just make things a lot easier — if we're going to try and get some young kids with us. It would be a lot easier probably."
He gave her grooming tips:
"Well, if we get them segregated out ... you know, start talking or whatever ... and we get a little closer, and a little closer and a little closer and before you know it ... it just starts to happen," the man's voice says. "But I think that girl from the broken home could be a possibility, you know."
He daydreamed on the phone:
"Do you want to watch me f— a young girl, too?" the voice of Fogle asks. "Will you f— a young boy?" When Herman-Walrond asks if that would turn Fogle on, he responds with a whispered "yeah."
“I had a little boy. It was amazing,” Fogle reportedly said, in response to a question about being with children. “It just felt so good. I mean, it felt—it felt so good.”
He also, allegedly, asked her repeatedly to let him install hidden cameras in her kids’ rooms.
“I had two young children at the time, and he talked to me about installing hidden cameras in their rooms and asked me if I would choose which child I would like him to watch,” she told Inside Edition.
The audio recordings can be heard at this link. She reported him to Subway in 2009 and nothing happened.
At the same time this was happening, Jared was flying to New York to pay for sex with minors. He asked the minors who he paid for sex if they knew anyone else they could recommend, always stressing younger if possible.
Also, according to the charging documents:
Fogle received "images and videos of nude of partially clothed minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct," which were allegedly recorded by Russell Taylor, the former director of the Jared Foundation.
Taylor secretly filmed some of the minors in his home using hidden cameras that captured them changing clothes and bathing.
Taylor was in possession of 400 videos of child pornography upon his arrest.
In 2011, someone else reported Jared to Subway via their website and yet nothing happened.
All this came raining down on Jared in 2015 when his house was raided and he was arrested and later charged with 14 acts of sex involving minors. He was ultimately sentenced to 15 years in jail and had to pay restitution to his 14 of his many victims totaling $1.4 million. His wife divorced him as quick as she could, Subway cut ties with him and the dominoes started to tumble.
All of a sudden the past reports about Jared came to light and Subway didn't have an explanation. Lawsuits started flying. Jared's now ex wife accused Subway of covering up Jared's pedophilia even from her because their marriage made Jared more grounded and more marketable.
It's now a sick joke, but at the same time of jared's arrest, Subway was trying to rebrand him as a family man.
So why didn't Subway act on the various reports it had gotten about Jared over the years? As this site puts it, it was a story bookended by laziness. Jared's laziness brought him to Subway, and their laziness in vetting stories led to the end of the Jared era with a lot of human misery left in his wake.
Subway has waffled in its response. Rather than taking the path of clear messaging and communication, and aiming to transparent and authentic throughout this terrible situation for the victims and Fogle’s family (as well as the brand), the company hasn’t been clear about where it stands in the midst of this crisis. What message was Subway sending to its employees and franchisees by keeping Fogle around for as long as it did?
As soon as he went to jail he instantly gained 30 pounds
In 2016, he filed an appeal which was denied. The DA's office argued:
[that] Fogle's text messages to a woman, in which Fogle stated he would "pay big" if she could procure 14-year-old children, and that he "craved" underage Asian girls. In these text messages, he also expressed sexual interest in young boys, although there is to date no evidence that he paid for sex with male children.
Later that same year, a brawl broke out and Jared was nearly killed in an attack meant to send a message to all pedophiles.
Other than that, rumor has it that Jared has it pretty easy in jail which is disappointing to hear given all that he's responsible for.
In 2017, Fogle tried to pull the Sovereign Citizen defense and claim that the feds didn't have jurisdiction over him which I imagine gave the feds a good laugh. The motion was dismissed.
In 2018, Jared sued to void his conviction going so far as to name the president (among others) as a defendant. It was unclear how the president was involved and Jared was forced to remove him as a defendant.
He claimed:
he was wrongfully allowed to plead guilty to conspiracy to receive child pornography, claiming that conspiracy doesn’t apply to such an offense.
His suit was dismissed.
That same year a woman pen pal of Jared's sold their racy letters to Radar Online. Seen here and here. She also sold a recorded phone call where she and Jared discuss porn and his sexual preferences.
If he wanted to appeal to a parole board, surely sending hand-drawn pictures of his genitalia that later end up on radar online is not a good strategy.
In March 2020, three of associate Russell Taylor's child pornography convictions were overturned for ineffective counsel. He still faces trial on 9 other charges.
In the five years since Fogle was arrested, Subway has been reeling. In 2015, their co-founder passed away and a new CEO was brought in. Internal reports indicate that customer traffic is down 30%. They've laid off over 400 people from the corporate HQ and this summer they had to revoke a promotion due to a franchisee revolt over the pricing.
Subway was associated so long with Jared it may take time for customers to form a new association. They tried to drop him once, struggled, and re-hired him. Clearly Subway lived in denial while Jared was their spokesman and looked the other way as business boomed. The new marketing strategy involves athletes. Time will only tell if they can recover from one of the worst scandals to ever hit a sandwich chain.
As of September 2020, Russell Taylor was being held at a federal prison in Yazoo City, Mississippi; Fogle was being held at a federal prison in Littleton, Colorado.

2020.09.18 15:36 snaaggz DONE with my mother.

I already took the last straw with her.
To give some background, my mother has always been the evil one. The one that has always wanted me to fail. And not only me, but my older brother too who's future was much brighter when I was younger but ruined by my mother. Me and my brother were raised by my father, who, keep in mind, is not the same father as my brother's. My father didn't care anyway and wanted to raise my brother. Then when I was born, he vowed to raise me as well. However, they divorced when I was around 7 because they were beginning to have a disconnect. When I was older, my father admitted to me when he married my mother he realized he wasn't ready to be with her but did it anyway because she had already been pregnant with me. My father has always been my biggest cheerleader in life and I would say I was framed into his image because I looked up to him. I wanted to be him, and I guess I kinda sorta became him.
I remember the summer after the separation between my parents, my mother and brother got into frequent fights. My brother has battled mental problems his entire life because his real father is a deadbeat and my mother left him with our grandma when he was a toddler, but came back for him after some time. When my mother married my father, my father began taking my brother to the psychiatrist. At the time, my dad was a small business owner who worked very hard. He gave my brother his first job at his business as well. He took time off to help my brother with his issues. However when they divorced, my mother through these problems out the window and my brother stopped going to the doctor. When my parents fought in a custody battle, my dad tried to gain my brother with me, but was only able to gain me because I'm his biological son and my father never adopted my brother because the father was still SOMEWHAT around.
Then one night my brother couldn't stand living with my mother anymore. She constantly harassed him and made him feel worthless, instead of bettering his school work ethic was treated like a slave, and killed his aspirations for music. He was a VERY talented guitarist. My brother was kicked out the house when he was 16 and went to move in with his father. I was 8 at the time, and from that moment on I rarely EVER got to see my brother anymore because my mother simply did not allow me.
My father was forced to sell his business because my mother convinced him too after he had planned to turn it into a franchise, but she didn't believe in it. When they split, my dad tackled real estate and got very good at it. However at the time, I was living with my mother and she continued her boring office job she acquired by going to college. That was when I began to resent school, because I thought I would end up in her position. I will not deny this though, my mother is hardworking. However my aspirations have always been different. I've always had a entrepreneurial mindset instead of being the employee. Whenever I got to see my dad I went with him on several business trips and learned many things about sales, real estate, property, etc.
My mother began listening to her friends, saying to put a restraining order on my father because he came to the house one day to try and see me but she wouldn't let him. I found out years later that she tried to go through with it but fortunately never worked. From elementary school to high school, I was only able to see my father through weekend visits. It went from seeing a few times a week to seeing him once every two weeks. For a time, I actually did believe some of the stuff my mother said because my dad has always been a bit of a hothead. But I realized it was just a stupid issue my dad had and he had been working on it as well.
In high school though, I became angry with myself. All the years living with my mother I felt like I had done nothing with my life. Sure, I made friends, talked to some girls, and had fun in my social life, but I felt like I was going NOWHERE. And when I went to my mom for advice she said "go to school, get good grades". But I hated school. I started to flunk for a while but my mother never helped me. She would only harass and bitch. At that time, my mother already got remarried and had another kid with my step dad. My step dad was similar to my mother and held me back. They wanted to control every aspect of my life, who I was friends with, etc. It also became clear to me about one thing, they were racist. They always said, "I'm not sure about bringing THOSE friends home", meaning literally just my black friends. They started trying to sniff me out for marijuana or other drugs when I started hanging out with them. Crazy enough, I got into pot not from "one of those black friends", but from an Indian friend. Funny. They started bringing up race with me more often and how I feel about "those Black Lives Matter people" and all this crap. My father on the other hand never cared about who I hung out with. It mind boggles me because both my father and mother are Latino, and my mother grew up in a very diverse area, but holds racist attitudes. My grandmother doesn't hold these attitudes is the funniest thing about it. How's my GRANDMOTHER more culturally progressive than my own mother?
After realizing I was nothing but a liability at my mother's house, I moved out at 16 with my father. But not like my brother, because he dropped out of high school and struggled for many years until his mid-20s when he got proper mental help through way of MY FATHER after years. Eventually my brother was able to get back to a mental state and moved to Texas. He fell in love and lives with his girlfriend and her son now. Cares for her son like my father cared for him. When I moved out to live with my dad it was to learn more about my true aspirations: business, real estate, etc. I hated school, college, and everything about that. I still went to school and hadn't dropped out, but when I was 17 I started my own business that I continue to run to this day. My father helped me through the whole process and believed in me while my mother said I'd fail if I didn't go to college. Plus, she knew I was smoking at the time and thought that weed was going to destroy my life and make me a homeless druggie. My father knew as well but he didn't care cuz HE SMOKES AS WELL and is very successful.
I graduated high school, started making several thousands of dollars and not really trying to delve too much into my money but I made my first six figures in my senior year. I started doing really well for myself and still do in fact. I'm self-employed and run everything by myself. I started investing with my father to have side incomes and we now do very well for ourselves. I visited my mother a few times, mostly to see my little sister to make sure she was okay. It started to become obvious that she was JEALOUS. The first time I yelled at my mother with no repercussions is when I was younger. I had to move all of my money out of one of my dependent accounts under my mother because I started that account when I was like 14. I put all my money there when I started my business because I honestly forgot it was a dependent account. But then my mother stole $1,500 from me and I got really pissed. Even though it was easy to make that money back, it felt like a huge betrayal. My father opened me an account under him and I moved all of my money into there instead because I knew my father would not touch my money. Today I am of course independent and handle my own money.
Around a year ago, I met a girl that I fell in love with. She's very much an independent woman and goes to med school here in the city. We moved in together, and thought, hey maybe I should introduce her to my mother and sister. So I scheduled it, went up for dinner, and we sat down to eat. It all seemed normal, my mother interrogated her to see if she was "worth my time". But this is where I lost it. I didn't yell or get angry, but inside my head I was boiling up. My mother did something to me she hadn't done in years, she spoke to me Spanish. The reason she didn't speak to me in Spanish in so long was because she remarried to a non-Latino/non-Hispanic guy. She brought me to the side after dinner and asked me "Why an Asian?"
What? Why an Asian?
Instead of an Asian she preferred I date a Latina or a white girl. She didn't trust her because "she was from China". I had to explain to her that she was actually born in America and that she's Korean-American. Like I don't understand why I had to explain she's not part of the CCP and she's a good woman. Her race was such an issue with her. Here's another amazing comparison that absolutely mind boggles me. My mother was born into a low-class family who are Cuban exiles. She was born in the USA in a diverse community, as I said before. My father was born in Colombia and moved to Chicago when he was very young into the low-class and moved down to Florida when he was 16. Explain this: Why the fuck is my dad and my grandmother, two migrants from a different generation, more progressive and more accepting of who I am in love with? How the hell is my mother's brother gay and she is so weirded out by gay people? How the hell, out of all of my mother's family who are old migrants that sought to create a new life in America, my mother is more racist than the elderly in our family?
And explain this: Why does my mother want me to fail? Why has she stolen from me, barely shown love to me, barely shown me attention when I needed it most? She has done it with two children and I am very afraid for my little sister.
So this is my decision: I am cutting off complete contact with my mother. That next morning after our meeting, I sent my mother a lengthy text to stay away from me, my father, not to contact my brother, and my girlfriend. I told her not to visit me or call me, and that if she ever needs to talk to me have it concern my sister. I have lost love for my mother, and I can say that with full confidence. It's been a month since then and I plan on continuing this for a very long time. I've already made it clear that if I ever marry this woman, my mother is not invited to our wedding. If I ever have a child with her, my child will unfortunately not know their grandmother. They will be able to have fun and spend time with their amazing, loving grandfather who never cared who I was or who they will be. I only keep people who will bring positivity around me. My brother has lessened contact with our mother too. His own wedding is coming up soon and our mother isn't going to be invited to that either.
We are adults now and we are independent. We know what we want with our lives, and I know what I want with my life. I never failed, and I never will. I will continue to prove my mother wrong in the future.
PS: this took a lil bit to write. Please excuse if I sidetracked a bit too much in some areas.

2020.09.18 09:37 PoliticalBuzzfeed Whats with Young adults from cultural families not being honest with their parents about their boyfriends/girlfriends

I noticed it with mainly girls who are of an asian, Indian, or any other cultural background (not all) won't introduce who they are dating to their parents and being scared. I know one girl who dated her boyfriend since they were 19 but introduced her guy to her parents at 26 and pretended that they were ''friends'' before.
I broke up with my half Indian and Latina girlfriend cause of this. It creeps me out how casually they do it too. Like I didn't think she was being serious until 2 years past and realised she was being serious. I just found it so disrespectful she wouldn't introduce me to her parents.
She claimed cause ''god forbid we something happens between us, her parents would like not trust her with choosing her own man'' how ever she promised that if they were to deny she would stand up for me. But for now she rather not deal with that and live her life. I know her cousins did that and it worked out fine. But isn't it just rude to waste someones time?
I broke up with her and she felt upset later said this is the reason she didn't introduce me. Im not trying to bash other cultures but please stand up to your parents. No matter how good they are. Stop hiding stuff. I fine that this why majority of these late teens and young adults end up so dependent.
Is this normal ?

My dad is an Asian immigrant. He met my mom abroad and had me. They were still together after I was born until I was 5 when he met an Asian girl. He introduced her to me as his friend but even though I was only 5 I suspected that she was his gf. They basically started dating while he was still living with my mom and me. He started moving his stuff slowly until he officially moved with her.
He married his Asian gf instead but he never told me. I just accidentally saw her ID and noticed that she changed her surname. I estimate that they got married by the time I was 5-6, so it means that they married shortly after they moved together.
From what I've seen in his culture when you get a lady pregnant, you have to marry her, however, my dad never married my mom, even though they had me and had a relationship for many years. I went to my dad's hometown for the first time when I was a teenager and some relatives told me that they think he never married my mom because she wasn't Asian.
Did my dad ever love my mom? Maybe he didn't love her enough to defy his culture. I've never asked him because he gets angry every time I mention my mom (even though she's the one who got cheated on).

2020.09.18 00:11 inlovewithoutyou Asian fetishization?

I’ve viewed a few posts on this topic before, but I still have many thoughts and questions regarding the fetishization of Asians. I want to be more educated and I would hate to be the type of person that has any elements of fetishization.
I just don’t know where the line is as far as fetishizing goes. For the most part, it’s very obvious. When fetishizing you prefer Asians, hold them to a higher standard, sexualize and objectify them. I do none of that.
I think about people who are attracted to Asians in general, regardless of their physical appearance individually, and obviously you think of fetishization. However, that isn’t how I operate. I find certain people attractive, whenever and however that happens, like any other person. I myself cannot find an entire race attractive.
Sometimes, I’m afraid that my love for asian culture is part of the reason why I admire the idea of befriending of even dating an asian person. I think to myself, is THAT fetishization? [this doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t befriend or date a person who doesn’t practice the culture or live in their certain cultural countries. AKA I am not racist lol. I just can’t find a better way to explain.]
Sometimes, I think about their appearance, considering different races obviously harbor different common physical appearances, and I admire those specific appearances. Is it harmless admiration, or fetishization? Maybe there is an unconscious reason why I think about them that way.
I am willing to answer any questions anyone has. I truly just want input. I don’t ever want to fetishize a human being, and if certain thoughts can seem to lead more towards fetishization, I want to unlearn those nasty habits.
Thank you. <3

2020.09.17 20:01 woahhellotherefriend Is it worth it moving to the Bay Area as a black woman?

Hi all!
I’ll be hearing back from a company I interned at soon on whether I’ll have a return offer to start with them full-time next year (after I finish my grad program). The company has offices all over the world, but the team I worked on was located in the Bay Area. I’m currently in school in Seattle, and the company has a big presence in Seattle as well (although smaller).
I wanted to spend this summer internship learning if I wanted to live in the Bay Area, but COVID-19 happened and I was remote for the entire summer. Now, I’m gonna have to make a choice of accepting an offer to go to the Bay Area, or pressuring my recruiter to let me stay in Seattle.
The big reason why I’d want to stay in Seattle is due to cost of living. While I’ll get paid slightly less than I would in the Bay Area, I’d end up retaining more of my money staying in Seattle (no state income tax, housing/renting prices aren’t as insane, etc). I’ve also heard the effects of homelessness is much worse in SF, and Seattle is already pretty bad.
Now, a main reason why I’d want to move to SF (besides seeing the sun more often), is cultural diversity. Seattle is pretty white and Asian. I know that most of my coworkers are still going to be mostly white and Asian due to the field I work in, but I’m under the impression that there are more black people in the Bay Area.
Not gonna lie, I’m looking to date. And I’m not against dating white people, but I have a very strong preference for dating other minorities. Plus, I’d want to make friends too.
I’ve heard SF is experiencing a lot of gentrification, so I’m not sure what the cultural diversity looks like in SF nowadays compared to Seattle.
Do you ladies think it’s worth moving to SF as a black woman?

2020.09.17 08:43 jiniba Anyone live/lived in Austin TX?

Hey guys I'm a 25 yr old guy moving to Austin soon and I wanted to know what "the scene" is like. I've lived most of my adult life in NYC where there are a ton of asians around so it was easy to find a squad so to speak. I've always had a very diverse group of friends but there's something easier(?) and more comfortable about hanging with other asian americans because the shared cultural context and I was wondering if it was easy to find some asian friends in Austin.
I know there's kind of a crowd in UT Austin but I'm a bit older and out of college, so I was wondering if there was a scene for asian young professionals anywhere in the city. I know in NYC and the bay area there were spots that a lot of asians would hang out at. I don't imagine there's something like that in Austin but I was curious if something like that existed outside the college environment?
I'm also curious about any thoughts & perspectives you have on being asian american in Austin in general—in terms of social life & dating, lifestyle, or any interesting stories in general.

2020.09.17 03:23 IcebergLife INAN for my newsletter about exploring Asian culture through traditional alcohols!

TLDR: I need a simple, clever name for my email newsletter highlighting traditional Asian liquors and their history/culture.
Hi INAN! I’ve been subbed for a while just because I love reading through the clever names and ideas that people have here.
Now I need a name for my email newsletter about exploring Asian culture through traditional liquors! Specifically, the newsletter will highlight one beverage and detail how it originated and the culture surrounding that particular alcohol, in both history and modern day.
(Example if you need a bit more elaboration: Mak-geol-li (막걸리) is a cloudy, lightly sparkling rice wine and is the oldest alcoholic beverage in Korea. It also goes by the name nong-ju (농주), which translates to "farmer's liquor." As the rural working-class beverage for centuries, mak-geol-li is conventionally served in rustic bowls. At 6-9% ABV, this milky, fizzy, complex drink pairs well with an-ju (안주), or Korean bar food, as well as with any hearty Korean meal. It first originated in the Go-ryeo Dynasty (고려), though it may date back even farther to the Three Kingdoms era over 2,000 years ago......)
I think I want the name to be simple, clevepunny (but not whimsical), or some kind of descriptive phrase (i.e. Asian Glow). 1-3 words, having some kind of meaning (not nonsense or made-up words). But I'm open to all suggestions--this criteria is just what I have in mind atm.
Even though I just used it as an example, no iteration of “Asian glow” please, I think it’s pretty overused at this point unfortunately. No “yellow” or "oriental" either please.
Thank you in advance! This newsletter is a passion project of mine and I’d love to use a name from this creative community for it! :)

2020.09.16 05:26 UchuuStranger Volga Tatar results (+looking for fresh Turk results)

Volga Tatar results (+looking for fresh Turk results)
So here's what I got:

https://preview.redd.it/3vyyw93yxcn51.png?width=1222&format=png&auto=webp&s=8f5d3da227833752ebcc5991911745c80d16ae13
Now I will attempt to interpret these results and explain the notes I did on the diagram. I originate from Russia (my parents and close relatives all still live in Russia), and I am 7/8 Volga Tatar 1/8 Bashkir (or, to be precise, 5/32 Bashkir - my parents have genealogy records going 7 generations back). Though the exact numbers don't matter much, because Volga Tatars and Bashkirs are very close both genetically and culturally, so they can be considered a single ethnicity for our purposes, and I don't consider myself a "mixed" person. Just to be clear, Volga Tatars and Bashkirs are not related to Russians or any other Slavic ethnicities, we are indigenous Russian peoples that have language, culture and religion similar to Turkish. How come my report is so multi-colored then?
I did some research, and this is the picture I came up with (please correct me if I made a mistake anywhere). I'm pretty confident that the purple segments of my DNA comes from ancient Turks who inhabited Central Asia about 2000 years ago. 23andMe currently calls this segment "Anatolian", but this name is not exactly accurate, because Turks did not settle in Anatolia all the way until the 11th century, and I have reasons to believe that my ancestors in particular split from them earlier than that.
The green segment most likely also comes from them, ancient Turks were central Asians after all. While it's possible that some of the green is a later admixture, I find it hard to imagine that all of the green is a later admixture. And this video also seems to suggest that modern Turks have some Central Asian DNA. In order to confirm this, I'd like to hear from people whose all four grandparents are Turks and who took 23andMe DNA test. I found some of the Turkish results posted online, but it appears that the results dating back more than a year from now had different map allocations. In particular, Kazakhstan was considered East Asia back then, rather than Central Asia, and a few other countries in that region were considered West Asia compared to now. That leads me to believe that the results have recently been updated, and that compared to a year ago, now 23andMe might allocate a part of DNA to Central Asia for Turkish customers. Perhaps even my purple segment should be colored green instead (or possibly blue - see below), as I definitely don't have any ancestors who literally came from Anatolia. I'd love to hear from Turkish customers to be proven wrong though.
Anyway, the crucial point in genesis of my ancestors happened in the 7th century: that's when a faction of ancient Turks near the Black Sea split off and mixed with some other Indo-Europeans (Thracians? my results suggest that I do have some DNA in common with southern Europeans) to found the nation of Bulgars. The Great Old Bulgaria was short-lived, however, and under pressure from Khazars it fell apart, and different groups of Bulgars had to migrate elsewhere. One of the two largest of them went west, mixed with local Slavs, and founded the First Bulgarian Empire (a predecessor of modern Bulgaria). Another went north-east, mixed with local Finno-Ugric peoples, and founded Volga Bulgaria (a predecessor of modern Tatarstan). Both of these states became sedentary as a result.
I believe that the bulk of ancestry of modern Volga Tatars, Bashkirs and Chuvash people is coming from Volga Bulgars, and that except for the Mongolian admixture in the 13th century as a result of Batu Khan's conquest (it was devastating but short-lived, so the East Asian admixture was quickly reduced to insignificant portion), the genetic composition of Volga Tatars and Bashkirs remained relatively unchanged. I don't believe there was much mixing with Slavs, if any, and if there was, it happened before the 10th century, when Volga Bulgaria adopted Islam and Kievan Rus adopted Orthodox Christianity. Unfortunately, the way 23andMe does its ancestry composition right now does not allow to effectively distinguish Slavic DNA from DNA of indigenous Russian peoples who are not Slavs, so even if I had a Russian ancestor (which is unlikely), I would have no way of knowing by this test.
If you see a flaw in my reasoning, have an ancestry composition that can contribute to understanding of the whole picture (in addition to Turkish, it would be interesting to see Bulgarian, Chuvash, Kazakh, Altai/Yakut/Siberian Tatar compositions), or just have anything to add in general, leave a comment below.

2020.09.16 02:03 closetedlesbiangirl Have you been in an interracial relationship and would you be in one?

As a latebloomerlesbian of south asian origin i wonder if there are many interracial lesbian relationships. Ive been on dating apps and i don't want to say its based on race but i notice i don't get many swipes and friend requests as i send out.If you are in such a relationship would you make your partner feel special and beautiful even though she doesn't fit the mainstream idea of beauty and probably faces multiple levels of marginalisation. I think both partners should do that for each other.i have a white fwb she tries to show she is into me and likes our contrasting colours when we lie side by side. Sometimes i just feel like im an exotic sex toy even though she probably doesn't intend that. Sometimes when i ask her if we can do something special or if she could do something special for me she calls me needy. Is romance and sensuality something that is not desired anymore in today's world?
I like to do special things for her and buy her things. I work in the medical field so i help her with medications, appointments and i also help her friends. Somehow things seem off balance. She also helps me when i need help with fixing things. I don't want to leave her at the moment as she is the first person ive been completely sexual with and im in my 30s. I have this connection with her and her kids. I want to be there for her but i worry in the end she may get bored and leave me. Which is fine that's upto her. Ive just been conditioned with this view that if you care/love for someone you're there for them during tough times as well as good times. Sometimes she is present with me and does special things other times she prioritises her friends, interests over me even if ive driven many hours to visit her. Ive had to move few hrs away for work. Isnt a partner meant to want to spend time with you if you come to visit them from far? especially if she has got things for u and the kids. rather then do all their errands and have time for you in the middle of the night.i wish she would engage more in issues affecting me like with family/cultural issues, be out about us and give this relationship another label and be a safe place where i can vent. Maybe i expect too much. I like women of all background especially caucasian girls but i feel like its a one-sided love and not mutual at times. It sometimes sucks being a double minority who discovered herself late in life. She too is a latebloomer lesbian previously in relationships with men. For me she is my second relationship and first non long distance one.
Guess im just looking for tips to help me getting her to understand me and maybe have some more initiative.

2020.09.16 01:39 Sobisonator [MOD] Imperatrix: Victoria - Dev Diary 2 - Unit models

https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/threads/mod-imperatrix-victoria.1410441/post-26917922

Today we will be previewing the new unit models made specially for Imperatrix: Victoria, bringing to life the 19th century landscape. These were contributed by MrAdrianPl and xangelo, prolific 3D modelers in the modding community - you may know them from a number of stunning unit packs for EU4.
Our aim is to introduce unit models that will change over time as nations develop their military technology. This can be achieved by changing the graphical culture of a country based on its technology level, which can also correspond to the evolving fashion sense of its characters!
Over time, we will introduce more unit models for individual culture groups, diversifying the appearnce of the world's armies. For now, we have a number of major groups which share unit models.
Western
The Western unit model is shared by European countries and their colonial dependencies. You will see these troops all over the world, although we will probably be adding new unique models for certain cultures down the road.
https://forumcontent.paradoxplaza.com/public/614287/1600209298580.png
The uniform is coloured based on the country's two primary colours. Below we see a British redcoat standing guard over London.
https://forumcontent.paradoxplaza.com/public/614285/1600209129453.png
Middle Eastern
The Middle Eastern unit model is used across North Africa to Afghanistan, and sports a uniform somewhere between the Ottoman infantryman's garb and that of a Persian regular. The headgear is modeled after that of the Persian infantry, serving also as a fez for other armies which used similar, but smaller hats. This uniform sports dynamically-coloured trousers and waistcoat.

Above: an Otoman soldiuer in historical colours.
Below: Middle Eastern armies dotted around various minor nations. Can you tell where this is? (There's a pretty obvious clue in the image)
https://forumcontent.paradoxplaza.com/public/614286/1600209204731.png
West African
The gunpowder armies of West Africa are modelled after the garb of the Fulani armies around this time, with head wrappings and flowing wrappings.
https://forumcontent.paradoxplaza.com/public/614291/1600209892471.png
East Asian
The East Asian unit model is a generic model made to suit armies from Lhasa to Bangkok to Tokyo, and as such is a hybrid of different styles.
Eventually, we aim to have more culture-specific uniforms to differentiate the uniforms of Asian armies.
The armies of the Japanese Daimyos and Shogunate produce a striking image!

https://forumcontent.paradoxplaza.com/public/614310/1600211706029.png
Arabian
The Arabian units complement the Middle Eastern gfx with outfits more suited to desert warfare, featuring headwrappings and lighter clothing.
https://forumcontent.paradoxplaza.com/public/614312/1600211800057.png
A lot of work goes into making these models, so we are especially grateful for the contributions made to our 3D repertoire. If you are a 3D modeler and you would like to take part in making this mod, let us know: we are looking for character clothing and hair modelers particularly!
A huge thanks again to all our contributors who have helped so much with localisation and demographic data. We are speeding along and have made amazing progress so far. I can't wait to show off our population density map once it is complete.
Finally, once again another teaser of two countries which are playable at the start date. The second one is especially hard to guess, but it's one you know in another form!

2020.09.14 20:35 ravesandrants 31 [F4M] Chicago - Cuffing season is coming. Here’s my tournament entry.

*EDIT - EMPHASIS ON LOCAL CHICAGO! Sorry, not interested in anything online or a commute to the suburbs.
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of dealing with the “situationships” and casualness that comes with modern dating. It does not spark any joy or happiness into my life. Call me old fashioned but I miss when men desired to actually want to take me out on actual dates (not just Netflix and chill at their place). I miss the excitement of the chase, knowing someone is truly interested in getting to know me. I’m not afraid to let my guard down again with someone I vibe with that’s also looking to actually date and escape the situation ship trend with me. So, due to not being able to meet many people in real life because of COVID, I’m coming to Reddit.
Who I am - 31, mixed race, 5’3, curvy body (not the fat curvy but actual hourglass shape), visible tattoos, educated, employed. My brown hair changes all the time from straight to braids. I love live music (especially house, techno and hip-hop), going to music festivals, appreciating and collecting art, culture, sports (mourning a real baseball season), my dog, trying new places to eat, lakefront days, traveling, and much more. Without live music, sports or much travel in my life, I’ve been really into decorating my apartment and exploring Chicago with my dog and my friends. I’m very much an extrovert that’s vivacious, kind, career-driven and just a good time. People have told me I bring sunshine into their lives.
What I’m looking for - M 30-45. Monogamous. You don’t have to have a six pack, but please somewhat take care of your body (attraction is still important). emotionally available is a must Also career driven and enjoy at least some of the same interests I listed above (the live music part is key). You live in the city (sorry, not interested in a long distance city-to-burb thing). You hopefully love dogs. You enjoy life, don’t take it too seriously but can still take care of yourself, and also don’t have too much baggage (not interested in parents or anyone fresh out of a relationship). I prefer white & Asian guys, but don’t let this hold you back from contacting me if you have something in common.
You’ll find a couple body pictures when you click on my name & scroll down some. Face pictures upon request. Super sexual or thirsty messages will get an immediate block. DM’s only - tell me what you liked most about this ad and a little about yourself (bonus points if you include a face pic). I don’t respond to lazy messages that just say “hey”, “what’s up” or messages containing nothing about yourself or what you’re looking for. Talk soon <3

2020.09.14 19:02 Mental-contract Is it me or do Desis in the Bay Area seem less likely to White worship or have an inferiority complex?

I went to a heavily Desi high school
I had (and have) Desi friends and other races
I noticed that Desis in the Bay date out less (like Asians) and they Don’t anglicize their names. I get surprised when I see how this sub talks about White worship, since most Desis in the Bay are resistant to dating outside the race (at least in my circle) and keep their religion, culture, names quite well compared to other races. A lot of them will have solely or majority Desi friend groups too.
Or is it just me? I seldom see Desis with other races here, not even with Asians or Whites.

2020.09.14 04:04 pantsuconnoisseur (Season 3 Spoilers) Inui's "insecurity" being perceived through a cultural lens

I finished watching Aggretsuko S3 last night and wow, what a ride. I loved it. I just wanted to share my thoughts somewhere regarding Inui and Haida. This is my first time making a long post like this on reddit so please excuse any mistakes!

As someone who grew up in between cultures (being of East Asian descent growing up in a Western country, therefore too East for the West and too West for the East) I found it quite interesting that, in discussions about the latest season, I've seen people describe Inui as insecure. I personally think it's a matter of a difference between East Asian attitudes towards dating and Western attitudes towards dating. Even though I was born and grew up in a Western country, I suppose my sensibilities surrounding dating are more East Asian due to my upbringing. I've written all this exposition to contextualise the following wall of text, lol.

Also, everything beyond this point is a spoiler, so don't keep reading if you don't want to be spoiled.
.

I don't think Inui was necessarily insecure. I think she was right to walk away from Haida when she felt that something wasn't right; even though they hadn't verbalised the expectation that they're exclusive, the signs that he had another woman in the apartment RIGHT BEFORE HER (such as seeing two glasses in the kitchen sink when Haida clearly lives alone, and then seeing what is clearly a woman's handkerchief in the bathroom of the apartment where he, I must emphasize, clearly lives alone) were subtle but imo VERY CLEAR signs that he didn't prioritise her. Despite their compatibility, and how much she liked him, she was empowered enough to walk away from being second place to someone else. I felt like this message was clear as day, especially since I can understand about 60% of the spoken Japanese without subtitles. But I do wonder if something was just lost in translation for it to be interpreted as insecurity by a Western audience. Perhaps the dub was different?

Anyway, this is what makes me think it's just differences in cultural perspective. I feel like, in East Asian culture, we approach relationships a lot more subtly, and not a lot is actually explicitly said with words. Sadly, this leads to communication breakdown. Had Inui asked Haida "why are there two glasses in the sink?" or "is this handkerchief yours?" and Haida answered honestly "oh, a coworker came over just before and wanted me to teach her guitar!" would that have been fine? Is this actually fine from a Western perspective? I'd personally feel iffy with that response, or even with having to ask those questions at all. This open kind of verbal communication isn't how we approach relationships in China or Japan. It's definitely something I want to work on when it comes to my interpersonal relationships, but that's another topic for another time.

I know the fanbase here on this subreddit is largely American, so what do you all think? My Japanese isn't exactly good enough to read/discuss this on Japanese forums to see if I'm just an oddball ahaha

2020.09.13 20:50 yuurisu How to convince my parents to let me (F24) travel alone to meet up with my SO (M28)?

Hi everyone! I've seen a lot of posts kind of similar to my situation, and I hope everyone could also share their insight, give advice and help me in navigating through this very tricky situation.
I come from a country with a very conservative culture especially when it comes to dating and relationships. While its become relatively more...liberal the past years, some acts of courtship still remain, like regularly visiting the house of the parents and giving them stuff. Things like that.
My parents are normally chill people who wouldn't pressure me into things I don't want to do and stuff they want me to do, however, they are very particular when it comes to love and dating. My dad especially. He's very overprotective of me to this day and its a struggle even, having to ask him to allow me to go on out of town trips with friends. I haven't even gone on an out of town trip alone thanks to him being so strict and paranoid.
My SO and I have been in an ldr for 6 years now and while my grandmother and mother seem to love him they are still hesitant in allowing me to meet up with him in real life. My dad outright doesn't acknowledge my SO's existence and gets angry when anyone tries to bring it up, myself included. They pull nonsensical scenarios out of their asses like me being kidnapped, him being a scammer, a human trafficker you name it. I've wanted to visit him myself but I can't even leave home because of my parents. My grandmother and mother often tell me to just let my SO visit our home instead, and that they have lots of other friends who have ldr relations and it was always the guy who would take initiative first.
My SO lives somewhere in America while I live somewhere in Asia. I've tried convincing him to come here to my country like most other foreigners who have Asian lovers, but he refuses to. He has access to enough money to at least stay in our country for a week and can go on leave anytime but he can't because he apparently has some kind of deep rooted trauma or sickness which makes him too anxious and clammy when boarding a plane. He says he can go with me once I arrive in America, as my presence will calm him down and help him but how can I even do that given my situation? I can't even leave home. When I tried to ask him if he can bring a friend or a relative to accompany him instead he just stated that no one would be able to go with him.
We have had arguments over this, with my SO even stating that his loyalty to our relationship has cost him his dreams of starting a family at an early age. I admit that he really has invested a lot in this relationship but so have I. I am really stumped and struggling to think of what to do now given the situation.
I hope everyone could help me out with this. Thank you very much!

2020.09.13 04:26 koolio92 Gay Immigrants and Dating Life?

I've seen posts here from racialized people talking about being a visible minority and experiencing racism in the dating world but I'm wondering if there are immigrants here who can share your story and your dating life?
It feels very difficult to me because not only am I a visible minority (brownish yellow because I am Southeast Asian lol), I am also an immigrant. And it shows when I speak English (accent) and through the clash of cultures with other gay men in my area. Naturally, I find it very hard to connect with other gay men and it has contributed low self-esteem, feelings of helplessness and out of place, as if being in another country is not already alienating by itself.

2020.09.13 03:45 confusion-by-chance Review: Because this is my first life.

Hello my fellow k-drama lovers~ This is my first time diving into review writing, but I figured that this series is quite interesting and wanted to share some of my personal thoughts on it. A quick disclaimer is that this will be pretty much loaded with spoilers! so plz advert your eyes away if you don't want to be spoiled with the content!
First impression.
Upon the few first episodes into the show, I was expecting it to be focusing more on the lead casts' career growth, how they develop economically whilst dealing with their personal relationship/ modern marriage problems. However, the show turned itself into a much slower-paced, laid-back plot that what I've had in mind. I'm unsure of whether that does me a favor or harm to my overall experience with the show. All and all, I'd be lying if I say I wasn't a bit disappointed that they decided to direct the show more toward the lovey-dovey relationship and marriage than the characters' career life.
They introduced into so many details about how both lead's families are very patriarchal in nature, so I was expecting so much about how they would go on about redefying the previous generation... but apparently not much work was done to push forward that concept after the first introductory rounds.
Message & moral of BTIMFL
Judging from solely the concept of this series, I would have to say this is my favorite so far. It is indeed very revolutionizing, youthful and fresh. Although I am not a native Korean nor an expert in said nation culture, I know very well of the pressure of in-laws that most traditional Asian families fall into, and I've had my fair share of knowledge on how much more severe it is for Korean people. To make a k-drama that basically concludes with "F**k all these traditions, we choose love & do what we want", or giving such out-dated beliefs about bearing children and wife's duty a lovely b*tch-slap is generally very satisfying. I just wish they would've dived deeper into this concept.
From my personal experience watching BTIMFL, I only really feel that message on perhaps the last 5 minutes of the show when FL's narrative really concludes nicely on how they deal with their newly reconciled life. Of course, there are bits here and there throughout the show where they have to deal with the patriarchal father, or outdated beliefs about 'wife duty', or the pressure of having kids. Those moments did give you some kind of uncomfortable moments, but I found them also very forgetful. My problem with this show is that, once again, I feel like they could've put more focus into these matters if that's what they're aiming for.
Pacing
I think because I was really expecting more fiery tension to happen, the pace of this show seemed a bit slow for me. I'm pretty fine with how they cut into different narratives (mostly between 3 CP) right when something about to happen. It adds to the curiosity of the watchers which is quite nice, but also I find them somewhat predictable. I think they also did not do a too-well job distributing the major problems, in which most of them really happen within the last few episodes only. This resulted in a very slow, mundane first half and a very rushed ending.
Additionally, there wasn't much concentration on any of the major plots, which make them rather forgetful. Notably, FL's conflicts with her former co-workers basically vanished within an episode. ML punched the assistant-director and then what? Nothing really happened. ML's ex-girlfriend appeared, but she too was only surfing the surface and seemed to not really putting much direct impact on the CP. Even the secondary couples' stories (Especially Ji-soo's) could've much developed much more.
Characterization
I'm very conflicted about how I feel towards the FL in specific. It is just that there are so so many times when I wish, I really wish, they didn't throw her entire writing career into the trash can and pause it until the almost last episode. Even when they mention her job again, it was solely as an excuse to bring in a new character - which I find very disappointing. I find myself at times feeling uncomfortable with how she interprets or deals which certain matters, but at the same time I do think it is quite understandable. She's at her 'youth' point where she's allowed to feel confused, make mistakes, and learn. Compares to the classic FL troupes, I do think this part about her is rather realistic and more relatable. I have to admit that it's sometimes irritating and uneasy to swallow, but still, very realistic.
I enjoyed ML's robotic behavior and how they really pushed that to the point of digital analytic SFX when he's thinking or cooking and such. He didn't fall into the 1D typical male lead and actually has his fair share of flaws and dimensions added into his character. Yet again I feel like the production really breaks this appealing point or just simply forgets about it by the end of the story. It is true that the bitterness of losing his love just when he finally decided to open up and love her is very painful and ironic. But the way he ultimately dealt with it is somehow very... out of character and cliche? It was just like the scriptwriters were just too tired at that point they think "Oh yeh let's do self-destruction as almost all other ML does". I really enjoyed how his co-workers react to his phone call on the last episode.. but generally just a bit off the mark.
To sum up...
BTIMFL does introduce us with a fresh breath of youth, but because they did not choose to do a bit of everything instead of a specific route to jump into, the drama ended up with a lot of potentials lost and just overall very forgetful moments that could've been better. Even their supposedly main focus - marriage - wasn't pushed to the ultimate point and thus, we ended up with just 16 80-minute-long episodes of FL pondering "I wanna know know know, what is love?" with a very abrupt, rushed ending.
But regardless of all those cons, BTIMFL is still a notable revolutionizing k-drama that brings up the current, much-relatable struggles among the young population, criticizes out-dated prejudice while also maintains the desire to love and be loved by this population. While this show did not hit the mark quite well for me, I do believe that many will find this laid-back drama enjoyable.
I'm rating this 7.5/10
