We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
Bri you are grown and capable you should feed yourself. I'm for welfare and helping the less fortunate but you aren't in a bad spot you're an asshole who thinks she's too good for a job. You want free meals, move back to your mama's.
You know. I can't believe her life banged to go down hill after the banana man era. Like i really thought things were at a lifetime low when she was being an asshole to rape victims and had the dirtiest, smelliest looking man on Earth. Now she goes nowhere, does nothing, never buys new shit, is dating a guy who (in my opinion) is a step down from everyone she's been with so far, and mourns an account with like 150k when she used to be so much more famous. It's so sad.
Probably because most of her friends in Japan are POC/Black so she can't be more oppressed than them. She needs some way to be able to say whoever doesn't like her is a bigot. Plus it makes her so much more special and struggling.
I'm not sure how many options she would have but to return to the US. She could stay in Asia as an english teacher, leaving every three or so years to renew her visa and be just like every other expat in Japan. Nothing special. But then she may still get turned down by higher paying schools for her past in Japan. But maybe other less developed, wealthy, or popular countries in Asia would take her as an English teacher. To live anywhere else outside of the US long term she would need a real career style job or to be a student unless she wanted to serve communities in Africa and that is way to labor intensive for her. If she were from Europe she could travel the EU or continue her studies for a low price but for a US student to study in a lot of countries either costs a lot of money that she seems not to have or you have to have fairly good grades. She may be able to swing her way into a European masters program but I feel pretty doubtful. Plus she'd hate it, manners are expected there and unlike Japan they won't excuse rude Americans. In the US maybe she could get an apprenticeship in a trade or join a two year trade school. Trades like welding or plumbing are in demand and shockingly well paid, but its an uphill battle in those jobs for women, more-so for women of color. Also in the US she could maybe get a teaching certificate and teach in under-served communities. Places that are poor or dangerous will take anyone with very low credentials for fairly good pay. (Can you tell I'm trying to plan my post college steps)
It's exclusively because of hentai. Most of the 4chan incels that made belle popular were the types to probably watch more hentai than real porn and both are more likely than them every having a sexual encounter with a woman, man, or otherwise irl. Because of this the crazy inhuman tropes from hentai that are put in as weird thoughts the author has or tropes that are carried over from anime become sexual cues. You can tran a person to be into pretty much anything with enough time and positive stimulation. The ahegao is supposed to be a degrading orgasm face and belle was trying to be an irl anime girl for dude who probably can't get off to actual women anymore. People copied not because its sexy or because they even know the origin, they do it because it gets likes, attention, and money. Hell if any good came out of it maybe some of those dudes used her as a gateway to being able to be into humans with belle as a stepping stool. Like a fucked up internet version of ancient spartan women having to cut their hair short for their first year of marriage because their husbands were s unused to being around woman at all after years of training that they had to be eased into it.
Do Korean prisons shave your head? I can't imagine why she would be wearing that god awful wig willingly and I remember when Wylona did her stint in the pen she wore a wig for half a year until her buzz cut grew back out. I know Korean prisons are no where near as harsh as the ones in Sing but do they shave inmates too?
I'm on my way out of college and thinking about work and her situation really triggers my anxiety. She's gonna leave Japan with a bachelors degree in a useless subject. I think to use that degree you'll need at least a masters, Japanese proficiency, and to pass background checks. She's gonna be so sol that I almost only almost feel bad for her. Frankly she could do ok in porn that under aged looking thing is pretty sought after. super gross She may even be able to find a niche in Japan. If it weren't illegal for foreigners to do any form of sex work on a visa in Japan. She will probably be selling nudes in California in two years while working at a coffee shop and writing more "books" because people won't send her money when she is no longer living their fantasy in Japan.
Y'all I fucking love true crime shit and while you don't get a lot of stuff out of Japan the is a lot of really crazy shit and a lot of things that are arguably unsolved. When you add foreigners into the mix it gets worse, not necessarily because of police bias but there is no family really looking. I mean someone like Bri who does so much high risk shit, is on and off of major psych meds at random, and has the mood shifts of a three year old could be missing for a week or two before anyone feels alarmed. It wouldn't be weird for her to blow people off, or ignore work, or not be home. Thats some scary shit. I hope everyone here remembers to live and/or hoe responsibly, try to avoid always doing the exact same full pattern every day/week but do remember to keep regular contact with loved ones. Even if it is texting your best-friend a heart emoji at 2:40 every Tuesday and Thursday. Remember to give information about anyone you're with for the first time to someone you know in secret, if you're especially wild give your find my phone password to a trusted friend so if they don't hear from you post-date they can look you up and see at least where your phone turned off. Live your life but don't be an idiot.
It was a visa issue. They'd probably let her leave because they want her out in the first place but Japan is super strict and probably would not allow her in then Korea would also refuse to let her in and she would be in no mans land again. Her best bet is probably to lie low doing illegal cash work in Korea to get money to get her shit and find a new country.
Thats so gross. How is she gonna talk about men harassing her on the street and still think it's ok to say shit like this. That woman is working. Like strippers are there to be appreciated and looked at but, according to stripper friends of mine, they aren't there to be hit on or for you to try to pick up. Especially if you're someone like Bri who probably said all that weir shit and tipped 5 USD tops. Bri is a female scrub.
This was super good by her recent standards. It has some of the things I used to like about her. The start is kinda boring but it was cool to see Tay doing things and getting to see HK more. The art exhibition was cool, not my style but cool to see. I'm really surprised she was allowed to have her phone out. I liked the sit down but at the end. Like she totally doesn't need to sit down and spill her guts to us, I was ok with just the earlier bit but it is cool to see more of honest Taylor and I really understand where she is coming from. I actually prefer that she has chosen not to speak on the political parts I think it is a mature choice and it was a good way to promote people looking into what is happening themselves instead of spreading misinformation or burning bridges. With every YouTuber who is trying to get pregnant I realize how few people realize how hard it is to get pregnant. And the stress gets to you so fast and makes matters worse. Also OT but that bit where she was cooking her oven is super cool, anyone know what kind it is? It looked like the tray was build into the oven? Like it would be annoying to only be able to use one brand of cooking equipment because there was no rack but I'm curious about it.
I wouldn't say that Saf was inspired by Taylor. She had been to Japan before, she has been doing videos on strange/niche/foreign styles for years and lolita isn't exactly unknown its just about the most famous fashion from Japan. I imagine Tay has no issue because she was never really a lolita or into lolita she was just a model who wanted to seem like a teenager at 27 and wanted a bit of that Dakota Rose fame. She wasn't dolly, she's just a bit of a skin walker. No shade to Tay, she's working on it, but the dolly style was just like when she wanted to be a Kardashian or when all of her videos were Neistat rips she may have liked those things but I doubt she truly identified with them. Also the lolita community is massive and a lifestye for a lot of people not something that was ever unique to taylor. If that was something so triggering for her then she has much bigger issues that need to be dealt with.
Agreed, I'll be hones I had no idea who Casey was he wasn't someone I would have found because our interests have so little overlap, but I could relate to Taylor a bit more and I was a bit envious. It did loose it's shine when I finally saw a vid of his and then found PULL. She may have been able to save it a bit by being like "look book with a wild item" But it would be better for her do do just about ANY other topic for her videos. Like at this point vlog at a spa or tell me about your diet I'll take anything new Taylor.
Yeah I imagine that's part of what has been in the way of her making content. It would be cool if maybe she did costumes or a cooking video like she used to. So she could stay in and make content. Or even a shopping guide were she shows places she actually shops and clothes she actually wears unlike her look book cause I imagine she still does most of her shopping online like she did in Japan.
Question cause I no longer follow her anywhere. But has sh made any content in a while? What is the point of donating to her? Even if you're one of the idiots who idolizes her all she does is post ads.
That's kinda the thing. Where do they get money for rent and stuff? The prefecture they moved to isn't cheap and they only do YT. What is their income stream if/when their channel dries up due to their inactivity? Rachel was military so I guess she could go back to that? But there are no bases around them.
Yeah I'm about to be out of college and IDK what I'm gonna do but I'd rather be here than living in her state of mind. Like the money is awesome but if you have no drive what's the point. I would use that money and time to learn things constantly. Hell one of the first things I want to do when I get a post college job is learn an instrument because I'll have the cash for it. She just accepts doing nothing and it kills me. She had her agency manager, and a YT manager is something everyone over 1 mill gets automatically. They aren't hands on and don't really work for you, they're assigned by YT to tell you little insider things like tips about when to post or trends on the platform, sometimes things like what your ratings are and to loop you in with sponsors. Maybe they help with getting money to the creators. They don't have much to do with the creation of process and seem to be pretty hands off from everything I've heard. I think they're more like minders, to make sure that someone with a super massive audience doesn't post something horrific. Like you get to 5 mill and post a snuff film.
Hey Yumi. Look. I can't say I like you. I find you lazy and overall objectionable. But I would hate for you to undervalue yourself and stay with this smuck. Any man who places a nonconsensual rough hand on you and does not immediately apologize, no matter the circumstance, does not care about you. You don't deserve to be scolded like a dog or a small child. That is not how a man speaks to another adult. Even an inferior at work, or someone with the mentality or mental ability of a child. An adult, or teen or child in grade school, deserves more respect. No one should be treated like an object to be used to feel better after a long day, to be someones always happy sweet bunny wife. You deserve more respect from him, from your mother, from your fans, and from yourself. You need to take time to be self-sufficient. To work and earn your living honestly so you can in someway understand your worth as an adult and partner. Al that aside, you cannot bring children into what ever the hell your life is. You are irresponsible, immature, unrealistic, and do not have the work ethic to be a role model. Much less a mother. That old bag you're married to is shooting out dust if he hasn't already got the snip but the idea that you would lay under and push out children for a man who has so little to do with his existing children is not only lowly, but delusional, and proof of how poorly raised your child would be at this point in your life. You aren't a left over, you aren't an incubator, your aren't old at 30, and your aren't deserving of a child. If this is Scott trying to gaslight a bunch of grown ass women on the internet who can't stand you less than we like your wife though the voice of a yours woman on the internet. Fuck off you disgusting pathetic little man. You took advantage of Yumi's desperation and general idiocy to get off. And you are delusional and racist enough to think you married some fetish object and that no one would judge your behavior. You shouldn't be commenting on internet forum. Your old ass should be looking into retirement plans. You've only got what.. 3-4 years?
It has to be motivation. She used to have Elbow to show off for, and she does not have to really impress him now that they're married. Plus I think in general she just used to have more reason to go out and want to make real content the kind that took more effort than sending someone to CVS. She used to leave the house regularly to do shoots, meet friends, go see her manager, and was a bit of a weeb so Japan was just exciting. I think she liked it better because she never even tried to learn Chinese really but did at least take classes in Japan, even if she was no good at it. Now she's in Hong Kong, which I'm sure she's excited about but she doesn't really seem to like it as much, she's just there for Tom. Didn't she straight up say she moved for him and the business? She doesn't do any kind of work now, probably dosn't really get dressed most days because she doesn't go anywhere. She has no one to meet or talk to that isn't thousands of miles away, her husband in the few hours he's home before bed, and people she pays. She seems uninspired in HK and not going out or having people to have fun with defiantly won't help with a creative block. Plus the baby stress. Her house is so monotone and and hard concrete (which I can't say I associate with any of the styles she's done so far) which can't be inspiring, she isn't going out to see art like she used to, she isn't working with designers to seen different styles like she did through work so now the best she gets is magazines. She probably sits around and watches reality TV and maybe YT all day. If I didn't feel like Taylor is so invested in remaining married I could see things going the way of Sharla's marriage over where they're living. I don't know much about Sharla's situation I just remember people saying it had to do with the husband wanting to be in Korea and her wanting to be in Japan. So forgive me if this is off. It feels like she only does any YT because there is nothing else in her life but YT, trying to get pregnant, and going to the doctor and being told she isn't pregnant. Taylor needs to pick up a hobby, learn an instrument, take an art class. She liked dancing she should take a class or join a non-professional studio. She has the money and the time do enrich herself, I really think being busy helps deal with depression symptoms and when she has things in her life that are actually for her again she may feel inspired. God this is long considering I rarely comment on her anymore. Sorry for the novel but it bums me out a bit to see her like this. I initially looked up to Taylor before I notices some fishy stuff and found PULL. She has a lovely personality but it just seems so dulled now. I want her to feel like her old self. Or at least re-find some energy even if it's a new energy. Even if she just becomes an IG influencer it feels like she compromised for Tom. Not to make him a villein even if I have bad vibes. It feels like Taylor thought she had to concede to things and she's less happy for it.
