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.
Fans: You've barely made any videos this year, despite numerous interesting opportunities to have done so that most of us could never afford, and for some ungodly reason we stick around for your content anyway. Can we please at least have some basic autumn videos? Kenna: jApaN doesn't do autumn Fans: Ok... can we please have some Disney vlogs, mostly consisting of you twirling with your skirt and letting the Disney parade provide all the content? Kenna: can't do that cuz i'm not in Cali lolz Fans: But what about Tokyo Disney? Kenna: tOkYo disney who? Fans: Umm... Kenna: bold of you to assume i owe you anything, you sex-loving ableists. now get off my instagram asks!!!
Stay Cozy ~*~*~ Stay Passive Aggressive and Self-Victimizing ~*~ Stay Unprofessional & Unkind <3 Do I think it is possible that she has autism? Sure. Do I think it can be determined in one 3-hour session by a psychologist with whom she has no previous history? Nope, that's what I don't get. I have a child who has been given the autism diagnosis (and "moderate severe risk" on the gold standard ADOS test, AKA close to Kenna's so-called "level 2" if I'm correct) after multiple evaluations by developmental pediatrician, the ADOS test by more than one psychologist, and a well-documented history of behaviors/abilities by therapists of different specialties. The autistic traits of my child are a consequence of her chromosome disorder; I interact with many parents who are FIGHTING - FOR - YEARS, MULTIPLE YEARS, to receive an autism diagnosis despite the fact that their children are clearly much more affected than Kenna must have ever been to complete mainstream school (most of these children to which I am referring could never survive mainstream school without significant intervention and support provided by the likes of the special education department). So while it is true that she could be on the milder side of the autism spectrum, a diagnosis of "level-2 autism" from a mere 3-hour session is highly suspicious to anyone with any history in this field. (Also, the doctors and therapists with whom I have worked have stated that autism is increasingly being over-diagnosed as an almost catch-all for situations where they are not quite sure how to diagnose the person yet.) Also, not a fan of the earrings.
Kenna going to Japan to "Turn a New Leaf"(TM) ? My crops are dead. My skin is blemished. My grades are falling. My memes are from 2010. My diet consists of sugar-covered bagels. But most of all, my depression is enhanced tenfold. One can only hope Kenna faces some difficult situations, learns some important life lessons, and becomes a better person. But then she'd be proving the AnTis right, so that's not gonna happen.
Even if I had thought the outfits were appealing (I didn't), the alligator clips were so distracting. From a front view, they look like two little horns sticking off her head. As she moves her head to the side, they catch the sunlight, shine, and stand out--especially distracting because the rest of the scene is the same wall and the same colored clothes. They're also so long and looking really disproportionate with her hair style. In the beginning, I remember admiring her makeup and her clothing style... It always feels so bizarre to see the change.
"How not to offend people on social media" Be a better, kinder, more empathetic person in general? Be smart and strategic with your content choices, so that you share what will likely be well-received while omitting what likely won't be (AKA, be professional)? Or at least openly state your ideological/political/religious/etc. views, and STAND BY THEM, so that you can build a fan base that shares those beliefs while potentially 'offending' those with an opposite ideology, but at least you're honest and responsible for your own opinions? I didn't have to Google that, Kenna. I used something called IntelligenceTM. Apologies if you're offended.
Yeah I get that; we run the AC all the time because we live in Texas, and when the AC is broken, it's like 90 degrees, 100% humidity in our house. I think the stupidity with Kenna on this one is that she acts like she is doing it for that aUtuMn #aesthetic, and if she is really doing it to emulate autumn weather, I can imagine that it is much cooler than is necessary; after all, we run it just enough to be comfortable in a T-shirt and shorts, not so that we can wear crusty brown jackets, neck tan-hiding scarves, etc.
Oh yeah I recognized that. I just meant that in general, to my knowledge, it seems like there was no reason to post about OTGW at this exact time except for the fact Kenna did a couple days ago. Kind of like maybe she won't post anything about Studio Ghibli for awhile, and then right after Kenna does, she brings it up again. At least that's the impression I get.
Ask and you shall [email protected]&king receive. [Sorry I don't know why my screenshot is so big.]
I can't believe she just posted #otgw when, as far as I am aware, there is absolutely NO reason to post anything related to otgw (such as an ongoing otgw event or new season). I mean, if that doesn't convince someone she is copying Kenna's feed, I have no idea what will...
You're right. It's the same old, same old. I thought this statement was so stupid. First of all, who is "we"? I sure as hell don't live in your world[view]. Don't generalize your BS excuses to the rest of world. "We LiVe iN a SoCieTy..." No. YOU live in this 'world' that you created by your ongoing actions, i.e., reap what you "sew." Second of all, what kind of nonsense is "a world that demands personal change but refuses to give you room to grow"? For her, this obviously means that she is excusing her ongoing crappy behavior by saying that due to the influx of negative comments on her social media, she simply_cannot change her behavior for the better. If you really wanted to be a poet, for example, and everyone around you said, "You can't be a poet because of X, Y, Z," then you don't have to say, "Oh well, guess I live in a world that refuses to give me room to grow as a poet, so I will do absolutely nothing to become a poet." NO. You can say, "Screw that, I'm going to work even harder to become a better poet. I'm going to try my best, even if I experience setbacks. I am the master of my own fate." Responsibility. Autonomy. Do these words mean anything to you, or are you a slave to what other people think?
If I understand correctly, "witchcraft" and "Wiccan" aren't inherently the same thing. Wicca is a religion that involves witchcraft/magick, but you don't have to be a Wiccan to practice witchcraft/magick. Of course I am just speculating, but I personally think lunestelle has tried to attach herself to a "brand" that Kenna has not by commenting on the IGs of the likes of Harmony Nice, Georgia Roisin, and other perhaps more prominent "witches." In this way, she can be like, "see, but I'm different!!!!" while still imitating Kenna's IG themes and flow in many ways. Kenna has openly stated she is not Wiccan and/or actually a "witch," just that she likes "witchy things" (in the vein of Halloween, etc.). If lunestelle attaches herself to the growing popularity of IG witches, then she can be like the Kenna of the witches.
I suppose it's a slightly more subtle way to be like Kenna... i.e., pretend that people in real life describe you as a character from an anime, popular book, TV show or movie on the regular. I can only think of two times when someone said I looked like a character, and they were both people who knew me well, and they knew I would be flattered if I was described that way. Aside the fact that most strangers don't talk to me at all because they're busy living their lives, if they did happen to comment on my appearance, it would be something more general like on my height--like "Wow, you're really short" and not "Wow, you're as short as [insert some short anime/book character here]!!!!!" I think that's probably typical for most of us. Either everyone within the vicinity of Disneyland refers to other people as X, Y, Z characters, or something is amiss here.
I think it comes down to this sentiment for pretty much every ridiculous thing Kenna does. She can never admit that she was wrong, that she made a mistake or a bad choice. It's always everybody else's "misunderstanding" or not getting her "humor," or "we live in a society" excuses, or whatever she can say to point the blame elsewhere. I mean, I don't know JACK about hair care related to dying etc., but even a smol uWu n00b like me can tell that the quality/texture/volume of her hair is atrociously worse than her original hair. It is crazy that she can look in the mirror and her million selfies and think, "Yeah, my hair looks amazing." Based on all of her past behavior, it seems much more plausible that she knows her hair is damaged, but she could never admit it to the public because then she'd have to admit she was wrong and has hair susceptible to damage like the rest of the human population. "Angry spiteful child" is pretty much a perfect summation of her personality.
"My favorite colors are browns and oranges. Why do I have to wait till October to wear them?" You don't. You don't have to wait to wear them. You can wear any color any time of the year. I have never met anyone who said, "Omg, why are you wearing orange and/or brown? It's SUMMER!!!!" Kenna, YOU are the one who makes up these "constructs" for yourself. jEsus.
Damn, remind me to never buy from Yesstyle. Apparently doing so makes you appear lifeless, disoriented, uncomfortable, pained, or robotic. I don't mind the outfits, the music, or the color scheme; just watching her poses and expressions (or lack thereof) is really awkward, like she didn't want to be seen but I'm not sure if I should or shouldn't look away to be polite.
