    Is it this same woman? I feel really terrible -- I wish people could see how they look to the rest of us before it all.

    Oh, damn, I actually feel really bad if I am contributing to her feeling ugly about herself.  Serena is cute and I like her style (aesthetic and fashion.) She photoshops too much is all, but I really have no ill will towards her. 
    When you photoshop your face to looking barely like yourself, you kind of open yourself up to criticism. If she always showed her real face and body with a few minor edits, I highly doubt she'd be on here in general. 
    I hope she's taking care of herself, gains the confidence to embrace her natural features, and just stops reading this thread and just lets us gossip without letting it affect her, because as far as I've seen we're not really saying anything helpful, just gossiping lol (not that there's really anything wrong with that.) This doesn't seem like a Lunastelle situation, ya know, "Girl, read your own thread and get your own style jfc we're rooting for you" type situation to me.

    I think Kenna could improve a lot in her poetry if she took a class with her University, or simply began to read more of the style she likes, rather than just criticizing the ones she doesn't. 
    She's allowed to have her own opinions -- even if she can't write for shit, she's allowed to not like a book as much as the rest of us who aren't directors and screen writers are allowed to dislike movies. But, posting a "this books sucks" post, and then her own very below average work right after...she's definitely putting her foot in her mouth.

    weird outfit, but not going pretend i don't walk around my own house in some state of weird undress and be feeling myself. 
    also, i'm not sure she was making a "social commentary" on swimsuit social context. i think she was just trying to say, "don't slut shame me for being in my underwear; this state of undress is socially acceptable and generally not seen as overtly sexual on instagram." if she's just feeling herself, fine. who cares? of course, we can make an assumption she's thirst-trapping for followers, but her caption leads me to think at least her outward intentions (what we have evidence for, and not what is speculation) is that she just wanted to show off something "cute" and goofy -- a lighthearted outfit for just feeling yourself and being silly.
    however, 9/10 chance she's going to get in a stupid fight with someone in the comments and then take it down, because kenna.

    Would her stopping going to the gym for just a few weeks have such a dramatic effect on her body? Or, is it possibly a change in editing? I feel like it's a lot to go from toned to much less toned in like...a few weeks, or has it been longer?

    -Shaming people who want to study something you deem "useless" comes off as petty, shallow, and anti-intellectual. You probably have an inferiority complex. Let people do what they want. They're aware it will be a struggle. Let people do what they can to feel fulfilled. Capitalism will make it hard enough without you trying to shame them.
    -Shaming blue collar workers is trashy and elitist. They're often intelligent, kind, and interesting people, and even if they're not, no one deserves that shit. :l 
    -I have a height preference, but I don't understand why girls who are super short and only go after super tall guys. My boyfriend is very, very tall (6'6+) and always got flirted with by girls who are like 5' even. Girl, his dick is gonna impale you lmao.
    -Starbucks frappes are gross.
    -Short, wide noses are really cute. 
    -Long noses are regal and I like them.

    Yah, I would say that's a pretty common idiom and it's silly to say that's stealing? Rewording it isn't stealing anything of worth; that's like saying, "We believe time should be used wisely!" is just paraphrasing the Bible and is plagiarism. It's just an idiom, an expression -- uncreative, at worst.

    FUCK I've been telling people about her lately. Awful woman.
    Anyways, I get creeped out by the weird guys who float around threads about pseudo sex workers on here. They give off really creepy vibes, and make me feel like this website is a lot less of a cozy nest of catty folks like I want it to be.

    This fight will probably go on for several pages, so you'll have pleeeenty of time to mull over what she's doing. 
    Essentially, Kenna is taking up a style ("boho chic") which borrows many elements from "bohemian" fashions that originated in Eastern Europe and the surrounding areas with the Romani people (a historically, and currently, oppressed group), among other groups. It was picked up by contemporaries in the 19th century, but popularized by nomadic hippies in the 1960s.
    Whether you consider this appropriate really comes down to how removed something has to be from a culture to consider it appropriation (hippies appropriated "bohemian," hence it's pretty far removed from the source culture--and Kenna's idea of boho is mostly sundresses and low-cut, loose shirts, so not exactly an exact copy), and if the use of elements from a style is really appropriation if those items themselves are not significant in the forms of oppression or not culturally sacred (e.g. black people get directly attacked for their hair, or a sacred symbol only allowed to be worn by special people). Cultural appropriation itself is a pretty sticky subject, since there's no consensus on who can and cannot participate, how much, etc.
    Honestly, I wish people would take this to the DMs. No use fighting over this in a public forum when you've released enough information to let people form their own opinions.

    I feel like the transition from "we shouldn't shame women for having natural bodies" to "you're supporting pedos" is
    a stretch, to say the least
    (i'm guessing she's probably just posting about this as an excuse to show as much skin as possible lol)

    You don't need to show your ears in passport photos in the US. That's kind of an urban myth -- they'll even say it if you get your passport ID done at the drug store, but it's not on the State Dept website anywhere as far as I can find. (Honestly, not sure how that would work if you have ears that don't stick out much or you have mid-length short hair. When I got my passport, they scolded me for my mid-length hair covering my ears as well, about the length of Rin's where you can't really pin it back, and it was accepted as a Passport photo.)  You can also have bangs, as long as they don't obscure your eyes. You don't have to pin up your bangs or anything, or at least I didn't. 
    The only problem with Rin's photo is the makeup. It obscures their features, so that may be rejected.

    I suppose it may fit the loose definition of "pornographic?"
