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.
@CrazyDaizy - your post is too long, so i wont quote you, the thread would be harder to read then but- Most countries dont give loans/or give them as easily to foreigners/have ridiculous interest rate, and some of them dont have student loans (i know that mine doesnt). she did say financial aid from uk or sweden is not possible for her (dont know about this, so i would have to go by her words). if you actually offer something on patreon its not really "free" money, but yeah, she does realize there is not much to offer for her, i would not like her to pull sharla with her patreon. can someone confirm about her calling her mom abusive? i only vaguely remember her saying they are not close, and she expected high lvl of independence from mikan and i cant be bothered to really check everything. (and im curious)
on new video - she said that about women in the past, not women now. quick google search didnt help me with that info much, except i think she misunderstood it, and they meant women rarely got periods due to poor lifestyles. and honestly, that last paragraph - i can understand everyone that criticize her, she brought it on herself - but this just screams nitpicking. its self entitled to think certain medication should be covered by insurance? how evil and narcissistic omg. and why would someone suck it up when they can take meds that can fix their problems in long term and not short term? she was advised to do that by her doctor, and prescribed meds, not like she is taking them on her own accord (it does sound unhealthy to me to skip periods for a long time, but i know less than an average doctor). im very grateful that i dont have to pay for most of my meds, and wouldnt be mad if more of them were covered. its pretty normal way of thinking in most countries.
didnt want to watch the rest of the video, dont care, just had to check that period talk lol
Maybe she had to start it now because of the visa? Idk how it works in Japan, but I know few people that have gotten papers (for permanent stay) in some countries through enrolling college there, so maybe she was trying to take similar route (i know permanent stay is another story in japan, just making a comparison). i dont think she can really do something different for patreon, her content is not that special. (she could prob take some money from those fans that really want personal interaction, if she offers personal skype calls once a month etc. [which i personally find creepy]) that doesnt make sense. why would it be hypocritical if she did something in the past but doesnt want to do it now?
I honestly dont think the backlash she is getting is that big? Look at her social blade. She is in the green and views are as usual. Its mostly people who dislike her that are being loud because they have something to call her out on. I feel like the problem is her deliberately trying to be problematic to be like omg you are all so sensitive, here you have something to call me out for teehee, Im a bad bitch I can do whatever I want. [but cries when her rent-a-boyfriend dumps her]. She really did avoid all major scandals, even tho she was part of them (dramaggedon last year, being a bitch towards princess etc)
I guess it depends on where you are from, but I think its still not the most common thing to be fluent in a lot of languages. Also its connected to generations, you cant really compare kids and adults, since education has really changed in a lot of countries in the past 10-15-20 years. (and exposure to those languages). Kids here have two foreign languages but are usually fluent in only English or none of them since they dont use them outside of school (i cant even count properly in french now but i have official a lvl passed and was preparing for b lvls few years ago, i know, its sad) In Venus' case I dont think we can expect her to have a "proper" accent considering how she has lived. I also cringe when I see videos of people claiming they speak a lot of languages since its usually for bragging purposes (and they usually arent that fluent, its just easy to do it for a video lol). I mean I dont expect them to be at a native lvl when they say fluent but dont exaggerate.
ok i feel like people are going way overboard with this mermaid thing. yes mermaids can have a race, depending on which folktales/origins we are talking about, in some places it was that believed mermaids were women that have drowned, some were turned into mermaids because of their sins etc, we dont need to erase that to prove that someone is racist af. disney's mermaid is not accurate representation of the original story anyway so it doesnt really matter if the actress is poc or not. she is way too invested into something that wont ever affect her life in any way. just wondering what would she do if she knew there was tv film with black cinderella and asian prince (highschool setting) lmao
I feel like that just really depends on the child, I never looked at that too [but some kids can be affected]. I preferred the blond white barbie, but blond bratz was super boring to me, I liked the other ones more. Personally, I just think Disney wants some inclusivity brownie points because of years favoring white characters/stories/having actual racist cartoons/ if it werent for that she would probably be made white. But this... omg. Like ok, you dont like it, but you aint oppressed sis chill, and i doubt little danish girls will cry because of that, racism is really showing.
Anyway I always wanted to ask about Adam Ellis - I know he is really popular, but I saw some comments that he tried to license some work that isnt his? Like some anime merch but in his style? Does anyone knows anything about it or its just some random comments?
