Hi all, I paid the server bill for the month so the site can be archived, sorry for the mess, didn't realize there'd be such an uproar. The site's in read-only mode. Happy archiving. Here's a link to a user-made PULL discord server: https://discord.gg/vZFEm75
Back to the topic; I do agree that there are some fujoshis who go way over the top with their shipping and the sad thing is, most of them are fucking young. I just hope that they realize what they are saying and doing can be harmful before that phase of theirs becomes an embarrassing memory. Don't get me wrong, I personally have enjoyed the yaoi mangas I've come across when I was younger, but I don't actively follow the genre anymore because I'm way older than I was then and I don't enjoy it as much as I did when I was younger. People can read yaoi as much as they want as long as they share the interest with fellow fans and know how to separate fiction from reality.
@fefe: Stockton (California) has quite a large population of Hmong people. Large, because compared to where I live (Oregon), the population of Hmong people is quite small. I only see like two other Hmong kids back in my high school other than me, and that was it. So yeah, I guess Stockton could be called "ghetto".
Oh. My. Fucking. God. Call me slow, or something (because I am), but I just finally realized that she was Fei from MySpace! (thanks to that photo) When Fujey was mentioned, I did not make the connection AT ALL. I just thought Fei knew the Fuzyon girls. But it turned out that she WAS one of the Fuzyon girls. I feel so fucking stupid. First of all, I knew Fujey (well, not personally) from the MySpace days and man, it feels like a really long time. But to think Fei was the girl who was Fujey's friend...damn, I can't believe I never made the connection. Fei changed so much... Plus I don't even watch her videos since I don't like kpop. I just came into this forum because I found out she was Hmong. But wow. I'm stupid.
I wished I was a part of the KS fandom before it got so blown out of proportion! I think the only reason people started noticing the manhwa was because of Yuri on Ice!!! Sighs. I totlly agree with you though. 👌
I consider myself bilingual! I'm fluent in Hmong and English. In my high school, it's mandatory to learn another language for two consecutive years if you want to go to a 4 year university. So, I studied French for two years. I suck at it. But I actually studied Spanish, in middle school, for two years before I went off to study French in high school. I suck at it too. Then, in my last year of high school, senior year, I studied ASL (American Sign Language), which is one of the languages that I've actually come to enjoy. I decided to continue ASL in college and I consider myself a beginner because there is still much to learn! I'm not much of a language enthusiast, but if I had all the time in the world, and all the money and freedom, I would go all over the place and learn as many languages as I can.
I didn't read any other posts except for the OP, so I don't know how the thread has progressed. But I just want to add how I feel. First of all, yes, I am getting tired of Tumblr. I really wish there weren't any antis-this, antis-that! I just want to enjoy my fandoms without antis popping out in the tags left and right. I know people can express their own opinions but it's come to a point where one can't even enjoy seeing the content they love without being bombarded with antis. It's like all the time antis spend spamming tags they could actually do something good in the real world, if what they're preaching is so just and right. If I hate something, I blacklist it. I am in control of the content I see. So I don't bother other people whose interests differ from mine, because obviously, Tumblr isn't a guaranteed "safe haven," for it is the INTERNET. Anyways, sigh, I don't think I've ever blocked so many souls in my life before. I remember when I first started Tumblr, it was a blast! I posted the things I loved and went crazy on the tags. I talked to people and even had fun (when I went back on my archive to see my old asks from other people, it was so embarrassing, lmao, because I was so talkative!) But now I barely even interact with anyone anymore. I go through my dash, see an interesting post, reblog it or queue it up, and then literally just repeat the cycle again. Drama free. And I usually just lurk/follow the tags of my fandom, but don't engage. I guess I also have grown a bit since I've first joined Tumblr. And I feel old and sick. ✌
I read it, and I liked it. However, I feel like I can't enjoy the manhwa without being policed or told that I'm "disgusting" or "gross" for continuing to read it. I guess that's the consequences of being on Tumblr.
Lmao, the buzzfeed thing actually made me pissed! I thought it was recent, but judging from the comments above it's old news? Damn, I would have contacted the journalist as well the guy who actually came up with the idea. Sighs. I should mind my own business, I guess. 😂😂😂
