finally a thread like this!! i have only used meeff out of all the apps listed but i do have some personal experiences to share i used to use meeff actively back when i was 14, hoping to practice japanese and korean with native speakers but i eventually deleted it because you guessed it, it's the perfect place for kboos to match with korean guys with fetishes for foreign girls. the best i got out of using the app was talking with the girls, they were all sooo sweet and helpful and genuinely wanted to exchange languages like how the app was originally intended. the guys however, it was fucking weird man. me being underage i was quite uncomfortable that these guys in their 20's-30's were attempting to groom me. i would get messages from them like, "how are you so pretty if you're only 14?" "oh, you're so young! come to korea and i'll show you how to have fun ;)" or other miscellaneous comments of me being innocent/pure or wanting to do sexual acts with me. the worst interaction on meeff for me was with a korean guy who was homophobic, transphobic, and anti-feminist. he kept debating with me how being trans is "wrong" and more bigotry, i had to block him cause it was a headache lol. the japanese guys were a bit easier to deal with, nothing "too much." as in, the conversation would go "hi" "hello" "will you be my girlfriend?" i believe katieaegi has also used meeff before and even met her man on there?
not sure if this has ever been talked about (i don't keep up with this topic :'D) but child abuse within asian cultures goes SO overlooked. hitting your kids as discipline is so normalized in asian cultures that the line between discipline and abuse gets blurred. additionally, because of the importance of family values it pressures kids, making it harder for them to come out about it along with believing that this kind of treatment is not abnormal.
oooh these girls. i usually enjoy their dance covers but sometimes i don't get certain things they do which have already been mentioned in this thread. wasn't there one time miu put her waist measurements at the end of one of their videos? why was that necessary lol
