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.
Real talk, I think it's because despite Elsa's personality being suuper up "Neutral Emotions McKenna"'s alley, she's a character that presents herself as older, mature and hell- even kind of "sexy". Anna's look this year has a very autumn-y conservative aesthetic to it and she's considered more childish and filled with wonder, and how could our 24-year-old kid resist the pull?
Has this been addressed by possibly everyone in this thread? yes. Am I going to pile on as well out of sheer frustration out of this bullshit? You fuckin well betcha. I mean it's just so obvious that Kenna does not handle money. Like at all. You have to be, to think that you can live in an expensive metropolitan city, cover your rent, groceries and sundries, have an annual pass to Disney, buy new furniture (in an apartment you were planning to "only live in for a year all along!"), go to Walt Goddamn Disney World for a stint, go on a month-long European vacation and still put "90% of your money in savings"? What an Olympic level reach. Why is it so hard for this girl to just say, hey, I get help from my family. Kenna, I am well past my ramen-eating college days and still get financial support from my family once in a while, which I am grateful for. OOoOOOooh look I said it! Observe how the sky has stayed firmly in its place, no volcanoes have erupted and PULL hasn't torn me limb-from-limb. Snowflakes need to understand that the frustration isn't from "hating rich people", it's people who think they're being "like sooo relatable" by bemoaning "how broke they are", when they are in fact much better off than most of the population.
(welp, since I was asked! ) It just makes no goddamn sense on multiple levels Firstly because that has to be the laziest excuse I've ever heard. As mentioned in the thread, where is Eilieen finding these Right Wing/Conservative Lesbian women??? Also known as the community commonly hurt by conservative policies since the beginning of western civilization?? Obviously, of course, it exists on some level (see: "gays for Trump"- and note that their latest march in DC consisted of...a whole dozen people. Lol.) but it's so much rarer, especially when you live in large, diverse metropolitan cities. If she had mentioned having trouble with internalized homophobia or unwillingness to leave the closet (which actually is a more common problem among older LGBTQ+ people, and one that can be overcome with support and therapy), I'd gladly throw her a bone. But not a very large one considering level 2. But ok. Let's go with her train of thought! fine, most older lesbians want to build some walls, are mad at dem illegals and won't let go of their shotguns. Fine. So why is it that she went for someone 40 freaking years her junior? Are there no liberal lesbians in their 50s? 40s? 30s?? no, of course not! It's only the baby gays in their early 20's who could truly understand Eileen. Not sus at all. Doesn't she see how insulting that looks towards her? This is something men pull all the time with younger women- "older women are too naggy! they dont get me! they want babies immediately, they're no fun, I'm young at heart. So instead of looking through the thousands of older child-free women who enjoy a bouncy castle, I had to fuck a 21 year old". To both of them I say: apenas melhore.
Holy shit I think I blacked out a little after this point. Girl what. And I thought men who find any excuse in the book to date extremely young women were full of shit. I had a goddamn manifesto-sized rant on this but fuck it, this bs is not worth the time.
My thesis was on Marie Antoinette. Favorite historical figure, love her to pieces and uh
Look, on one hand she's right, with the whole "being seen as only L'Autrichienne who came to ruin France", she was way, WAY more maligned than she actually was. She was known to be charming, sweet and generous if not a little hot-tempered and prejudiced especially when she was young. She was not a very good political player and just preferred to do her Queenly Duties and be left alone with her friends. She still actively participated in a system that oppressed hundreds of thousands of people though. It's almost like people are, well, people and can be nice and good but still do harm in the world. Don't let the cognitive dissonance hit you on the way out. But also, ha. Not surprised Kenna identifies with her. Marie Antoinette was very poorly educated and hated being forced to study or read "enriching" texts. Her French was so abysmal she had to do intensive studies before moving to France. She was also very intimidated and annoyed by smart women that reminded her of her more accomplished (if slightly less charming/popular) older sister. I'm going to leave that there, let the coincidences and parallels do their own talking.
I'm also fine with the pics- but of course, this is coming from someone who will never forget invadernoodles (snowflake featured on this site) taking LEWD SELFIES ON A PERSON'S TOMBSTONE two October's ago. I might be a bit jaded after that.
I think perhaps we've been used to seeing her in bulky hoodies, so seeing her show off some shoulders or tight fitting sleeves might give that impression- I can't say for sure but that was my first thought.
Eh, maybe she just wants to have short burst experiences and see as much as possible in short days. She won't see everything, but she's already seeing waay more than I ever did. Restaurants, landmarks, museums. I don't really fault her for that, I think arguments of "why is she not staying longer, she's not absorbing the culture properly" are in a little bad faith. While I don't doubt she's going to come back The New Euro Expert because she was in Rome for two days, until she does that I'm holding off. And hey, it's not like she doesn't give us plenty of opportunities to judge- she wasn't in the continent for two days without comparing countries and having to defend herself to her "antis" lol
She's definitely not multiracial, but you're not the first to wonder- so obviously, her first instinct in 2017 was to declare she identified as another ethinicity: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dETO83unpeY This is why I'm never ever buying anything that comes out of her mouth, she's no stranger to saying idiotic things for any kind of attention.
God I hope she left his ass. I know her Ultimate Goal seemed to become a wife and mother (which is a perfectly valid dream!) but doing so by marrying a man almost twice your age and depending on him economically and to even drive you to get out of the house (in a non pedestrian friendly city) is a disaster waiting to happen.
Rent must be due for her to resort to dumb "takes" on LGBTQ+ issues. I still remember her long ass rant on how being gay was a choice. I didn't even bother to watch the whole thing, while Trisha's brand has always been "hot mess", this is going much beyond that at this point.
