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.
From the looks of it classic gyaru is coming back in the West but it seems gyaru in Japan is coming back with a new look or something slightly different Egg has released two magazines but it’s not the same as before, it’s suits the taste of a new generation which isn’t bad imo
How many people does Brianna think follow her? Hundreds, thousands?? I’m not denying her experience but she needs to understand her followers don’t live in Japan, they live outside of Japan. Also self growth would be knowing when to change direction in life when things are working out is taking a big toll on you health/mental health
There’s a time and place to be sarcastic and use “mean” jokes towards friends but on camera where opinions and interpretations differ it’s best to either leave a disclaimer at the beginning or tone it down. There’s no point of trying to hide behind British sarcasm when you constantly get called out for it; to me it means you’re “personality” isn’t consistent and you’re confusing your followers/viewers
I only have one thing to say: Go home Brianna Japan isn’t it for you. If you have endometriosis it’s best to get help at home and not abroad, the same goes for your mental health. There is no point trying to prove anything and make yourself look unique/speak all when at the of the day you are struggling and feeling beyond low.
It’s not cute to tough it out when you don’t need to. Learn to give up, it’s bad you can always go back especially if you’re looking at grad school you need to be as healthy as possible and have the appropriate copping mechanism.
Please don’t ask us who to vote for. Opinions differ and issues change. If you don’t want to vote don’t vote but mildly complaining about issues our country has is ridiculous when you answer “well I don’t want to vote because I’ll hate you I vote for” please go make up your mind and not find a way to argue with everyone in the group chat because you’re indecisive
Yes thrifting in Japan can be expensive, I’ve bought a few things from thrift shops there, however so is buy cheaply made clothing that doesn’t last long and isn’t properly made. Investing in some good quality clothes last a lot longer than cheaper ones if one can afford and budget for it. Also she doesn’t need to buy the clothes she can interview Japanese students at her school who thrift, ask them where they shop, what they look for when thrifting, etc.
I know it’s hard to leave ones comfort zone but it wouldn’t hurt to have a small mini series talking about fashion and letting people know what you’re learning without giving too much info away. She’s not the only person I know who goes to that fashion school and they’ve managed to post interesting videos without exposing too much about themselves
People who go out of their way to subtly flex that they’re dating someone outside their race line it’s some sort of life accomplishment need to stop.
It’s not even worth making fun about at this point cuz you can tell they’re desperately looking for some sort of validation for dating someone outside of their race. Interracial relationships aren’t that uncommon in the west so stop acting like you’re better than others for doing so.
Calling someone in your race/ethnicity “whitewashed” constantly and then getting upset that they harbour I’ll feelings towards their own race is ridiculous.
The university does give out degrees since I wanted to apply there and my university has an exchange agreement with her university. The issues is that she’s lazy so even going to a better university like university of Tokyo or a US university probably wouldn’t help her. She pretty much is working against her own future
Have to agree with both comments above. The song like something I'd find on one of her albums. I feel like if the song was Miley, Lana and someone else it could’ve worked but Ariana’s voice makes the whole thing sound like a generic(?) pop song. I also feel like she has too many lines compared to Miley and Lana and that contributed to the song sounding like an Ariana song with features rather than a collab
This whole blackface equating to people trying to being positive light to dark skin women is the same as certain POC men saying stuff like “i only date darkskin women”=“you should be grateful”. Just because I want to be treated right and respected as a person without having my skin tone dictate that doesn’t mean I’m going to take any form of “appreciation”
My university needs to stop accepting money for projects that don’t benefit anyone, like that stupid tree shadow no one can see because you need to be on a roof to appreciate, and instead address issues like an increase in sexual assault and downplaying the need for cultural courses in language and regional studies
I’m all for minorities having their own Facebook groups, like SAT and others, and I’m part of a few but I can’t really say I feel more included or found a space where I can meet others of a similar ethnic background because the groups are dominated by one race or ethnicity or country. And when it’s mentioned people just casually ignore it as if it’s not a big deal, only to complain when white people do the same thing to them. I know the new iPhone is ugly but I’m getting really tired of the memes and people pretty much shaming others for buying one. Grow up people can do what they want with their money, constantly judging them is childish.
“While all this crazy stuff is going on” you mean the innocent people getting killed and/or raped? That crazy stuff? Maryjane you’re cold and lack empathy imo. The Sudanese crisis is not a Hollywood production it’s happening in real time and people are losing their family, friends and the country they love. I don’t know what made you think such a reply was appropriate
People need to stop using the word “racism” to deceive every little thing involving race. Xenophobia is a thing, race fetishism is a thing, internalized racism is also a thing. Thinking you’ll succeed in life if you marry a foreigner aka in order to half mixed raced kids is not automatically racist. It’s problematic but I wouldn’t classify as racist right of the bat. Also non mixed people dictating what words mixed people find offensive is strange to me. I’d like to hear from a mixed person if the find the word “half” offensive to them if possible. There are too many people speaking up for minority groups without listening to them
ok but this is the same girl who said black men deserve to be shot up. Why the sudden change of heart? I dislike her wish washy attitude when it comes to black people and our issues. I’d rather have her stay silent about it then pretend to care about it whenever it pleases her. To me being black and pretending you care about black issues is just as bad as being black and completely disregarding them
