(I am sure you didn't mean it this way, I just want to point this out) Just because the legal age of consent is 14, doesn't mean that everyone in Canada grew up thinking sexualizing a 14 year old was ok. What the law says and society's views on a matter don't always connect. I just wanted to point this out as someone who grew up in Canada, because I don't want other people thinking that just because Sakimichan is based in Canada and the government was too dumb to update the age until 10 years ago that she gets a pass on this. (Like the age of 14 was set in 1892, so I'm also like wtf Canada) Also I am not a legal expert, so I can't say if she gets a legal pass on this or not, but some more reading under the spoiler if anyone is curious:
I know I'm late to the party, but I've been wondering about this since she changed it -- Is Kenna's IG icon a picture of Kofuku just because she googled "smol pink hair anime girls" to match her new aesthetic, or has she actually screamed about Noragami at some point and I just missed that?
I just really hope that Kerfuffle's fans don't look at this and think it's ok to bleach your hair 3 times in 6 hours. If she wants to fry her own hair off her head, that's her decision (a bad one, but) -- it's her head, she can live with it. But I hate that she's claiming "it's not that damaged", because some teenager who doesn't know any better is going to think they can do this too and then end up with crunchy fried/ no hair.
For the love of all things holy, will someone just take away that corset/belt/waist strap thing? I mean the following in the nicest way possible -- McKnuckles, stop using that thing as a girdle because you want to look smaller or hide any weight gain you're uncomfortable with. Just own it. You'd look a lot smaller if you wore properly fitted tops. If the stuff you own right now is too big, tailor it at the waist. If you are wearing it because you think it makes your outfit nicer, IT DOES NOT. Please stop.
Ok, this always bugged me about her, because she makes grammatical and spelling errors on a regular basis on really simple things, and I can never decide if this is due to her "forgetting English because she's Japanese now", or what. But I want to point out that we cannot blame this on the fact that she only finished the minimum school requirements in Canada. The school curriculum in Canada is decided by each province, and as someone who went through school in the same province as her, I want to say that the mistakes she keeps making are things that teachers correct in school somewhere between the 2nd and 4th grade. Why a grown woman is making mistakes that a 10-year old would know not to make is beyond me. I'd say by the 6th grade at the very latest, teachers would have corrected her enough that she wouldn't be making these mistakes (especially with spelling). I'm not sure if Mira finished high school (I think I heard she hasn't?), but Ontario also has a province-wide literacy test in the 10th grade. You need to prove that you can meet the minimum standard for literacy across all subjects. If you fail, you have to retake the test. You can't graduate high school without passing this test. I'm wondering about this because if she went into the test with the type of English she's been using online for years, I highly doubt she passed it. (There is an option to take a special course if you failed the test, but they teach the basic stuff you needed to pass the test and I still don't think she'd pass that course making such elementary mistakes).
Edit: I cleaned up the language a bit because I felt like I was coming across as a bigger ass than I meant to be.
I personally did it on my instagram because I got asked what I was every day (I don't think I look like anything), and it was just a little easier. On another note, as a mixed person who is pretty ambiguous looking, I find this faking thing really annoying? Like I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt at first because I know I don't really have noticeable Japanese features and it's annoying when people are always asking me. But at the same time, I know what I am and I don't get all snowflakey and start blocking people and posting, "omG yOu GuYS arE So RACisT. HeRE is a PictURE of My SQinTinG DoG as PROof. I EAt SuSHi EvERy DAY. #KyarYPamYuPamyUisAgoddeSS" Like once they start "proving" it in every post and comment, it's just like "guuuuurl, just sit down and stop, please."
(a lot of people replied before this got approved, so sorry if there's any repeat)
So from my experience working over there and doing modeling, she CAN get a job but it won't be what she thinks. At 4'11/5'1/whatever she says her height is, there is no way in living hell she will get a job there. This is ignoring the fact that she's actually old for a starting model (this is based on the assumption she has no real portfolio, and no, your snow-filtered selfies don't count, McKFC). She could try for a Japanese talent agency, which also has a model roster and are a little more lenient with the height/age/weight requirements, but that's pushing it. She'd have to be something really special for them to take a chance on her. She could potentially do print or work as a reader model, but I doubt that will happen. And let's not forget that a real agency will want to see her real face -- meaning the fake moles, mismatched foundation and 5lbs of lashes need to go. What she may end up doing is signing up for a foreign talent agency. Literally anyone off the street can sign up for those. A lot of them basically just deal with sending out foreigners for extras in shoots and commercials.
THIS SO MUCH. I've been lurking on this site forever, but this whole thing made me so mad that I finally had to freaking post. I'm mixed Bangladeshi/Japanese/White European and my appearance is really not close to any of these things. I get rejected from Bangladeshi people because I don't look like them. My skin is more tanned and I have round eyes so I get rejected from the white and Japanese community too (for the most part) for not looking like any of them. I'd feel so out of place going out in public with a white grandparent. Every time I go out with my family, I get asked if we're "together" because they just assume I'm a separate random person. Not to mention, that I still somehow get targeted for racism despite no one knowing wtf I am (they just pick a random race/country and start going on about that). I had to once sit there in high school and listen to a white girl go on a tirade about how racial mixing was killing off white people, and racially mixed people had no right to exist. It felt like shit. All of this basically ended up with me being a grown-ass person who has issues with their self-esteem/ sense of belonging.
I can't say everything is bad, because not everyone is an ignorant asshole, but that's just my general experience. Why would you lie about your race? It's cool if you want to be a weeabo or koreaboo -- do that, but don't try to start going all Rachel Dolezal, reject your own race and start wearing someone else's like a costume.
