    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

  1. shoebox added a post in a topic General "non Asians pretending to be Asian" thread   

    Not quite sure if it fits the thread but just some things I remembered that I keep forgetting to post
    I've been reading the e-girls thread (and Poki's thread by extension), yellow fever does seem to go in hand with the e-girl scene with some of them pretending to be a smol cute azn (let's be real, specifically east asian) girl that streams games for views.
    also, a long time ago there was an ad from a local convention that was looking for a cosplay makeup instructor for some sort of panel, what bothered me was part of the requirements: must look korean/japanese to qualify
    it just all seems so shallow to me yet i think it's a big problem on the blatant fetishation

    I wouldn't be surprised if she says shit like breathing Japanese™ air (actually, seems to be a weeb staple to stress how Japanese something is at any given chance)

    There's something in the way android 21's stomach is rendered it looks really deflated and flat to me.

    reminds me of someone i know who would post pics of their pocky stash at every possible chance and emphasize how it's a japanese import (but technically the local distributor sources from glico's thailand factory so )
    going to admit from personal experience i like instagram's tagging system when it comes to posting artworks but aside from that I'm not a fan of those curated/aesthetic personal posts. snap on the other hand is probably the digital equivalent of constantly poking someone to look at something (hey hey hey look at this hey) and i feel that kind of thing enables someone to always find something to flaunt about

    ever since reading this thread something has been bugging me for a while and now I finally know why
    i seem to frequently see this aesthetic/style from KR twitter artists and they look really similar to the pics posted here

    I find Snapchat incredibly pointless.

  8. shoebox added a post in a topic General Anituber Thread   

    someone linked his vid to me years ago and i found it funny. actually made me sub and watch even if 80% the time i have no idea about the shows he's covering since i don't go out of my way to watch anything now. you can say i'd watch his vids just to have a general idea of shows every season but that was it. eventually lost interest until I read about the Flying Colors scam and that made me click unsubscribe

    this feels like a reach but maybe she's insecure of actual asian girls being posted in the chat seeing as how she's trying to pass as an (east) asian™ herself

    Who knows they might be trying to beat Mara Clara's record.

  11. shoebox added a post in a topic Opinions On Koreaboos   

    just my personal observation from years ago:
    they're like the new weeaboo (when kpop got more attention overseas), i personally think they're a bit worse than weebs for they mostly obsess over real people. (weebs mostly obsess over cartoons, don't they?) my general impression of the kpop industry is bad, particularly the cut-throat beauty standards (gangnam unnie thread comes to mind) that kboos try to emulate

    am i the only one who finds the entire anituber thing pointless like those let's play videos like do people watch these people to validate themselves that they don't have "shit taste".

  13. shoebox added a post in a topic The commonness of Facetune and excessive PS and Snapchat filters   

    Not really facetune but I know someone who got a new phone and we took selfies with it. I'm shocked it has a really noticeable facetune-like filter by default and this person didn't even know. Is this a common thing in Chinese phones now?

    this pops up in my head sometimes and makes me wish some sort of anime crash happens (like the 1983 video game one) though that would mean fucking a lot of already-low-paid animators in the process. maybe that would stop studios from churning cash grab trash at breakneck speeds every season

    Maybe I'm too deep into reading PULL that I suddenly remembered a compliment given to me that completely went over my head.
    I was told in some angles I look Chinese and it's nice and they like it. With the amount of weeb/kboo/yellow fever threads I've read, I'm starting to realise this person who complimented me might have tendencies of yellow fever.
