I get what you mean, in the sense that having a certain viewpoint may attract people who's views are basically the extreme version of what you believe in, but that can also go for every political/moral stance, not just center/right-leaning. You can be someone who's very far left, but that doesn't mean that you necessarily share the same views as Hitler, who being socialist, would be left in some aspects, Chairman Mao, also left, or the Democratic Party during the Civil War which was pro-slavery at the time. Or how about religion? I don't expect every muslim to be a die-hard extremist, just because the Q'ran itself is also used by people who want islamic laws implemented into every aspect of society. It seems to me that people should be able to tell from what a person says and does overall, rather than just looking at isolated incidents, to be able to figure out for themselves what kind of person they are. I just think people should use a little more critical thinking than hearing a viewpoint that isn't left and automatically think "they're far right".
It's sad he still has to address the rumors and libel about him somehow secretly being a Nazi or something, but for those who keep saying he needs to acknowledge what's right and wrong, here you go. If it wasn't obvious enough that being racist isn't ok, he also directly mentions that in this video, although it shouldn't even be necessary since he's never actually done anything to suggest white supremacy but ok. Guilty til proven innocent I guess these days. Are people happy now? And we know the journalists who published articles making false claims against him are held to literally no standard and won't apologize for doing something that's actually wrong; it's just the people they write about who have to defend themselves against false claims.
Sorry but how is Jordan Peterson racist? I've listened to his interviews and some lectures before and he just doesn't believe that censoring "hate speech" is the way to change society, but rather having conversations. Not to mention using science to back up your arguments, which many people are unable to do these days. Jordan Peterson is an intellectual, and Felix reading his material doesn't mean he has "racist views" for wanting a different perspective than what's commonplace online these days.
The shooter could've said he was influenced by any public figure with some controversy attached to their name and the internet would find a way to pit responsibility on them. If he didn't mention Pewdiepie, Candace Owens, or Trump, and instead mentioned Kanye West, Jeffree Star, or idubzz, then the internet would jump down their throats instead. Pewdiepie holds no responsibility for someone who chose to commit mass murder; the two aren't even comparable when you actually look at Pewdiepie's content. The shooter even said he wanted to cause divide among people, and by believing that these people he mentioned are actually the issue then you're looking in the wrong area and doing what he wanted. Like what was said earlier, the victims should be the main focus. And this isn't an issue of difference in political party, but rather one of racism and religious intolerance.
I never understood why Eat Your Kimchi got so much hate for talking about kpop. It's like the fangirls lost their minds when EYK didn't constantly praise everything idols did, or just giving an honest critique of the music. I used to watch them religiously up till I went to college and then I didn't really have time to, but any critique of a kpop song/mv was 99% of the time directed at the actual music companies since they obviously knew that idols don't really have any control of their songs/mv concepts. They actually analyzed videos really well imo, like Jaejoong's Mine as possible symbolism of leaving SM, or the running joke of Ukiss being homeless in almost every mv. It was a chill time in 2013.
That's interesting, I'll check out the link. That would make sense as well, there being more homogeneous societies back then compared to now. I remember reading once, although I don't know how accurate it is, that some people think that because of the Ottoman Empire invasion from the Mongolians, they think that is why some Slavic people have slightly Asian types features. (and apparently according to Hitler/nazi beliefs, Slavic people having an "asiatic steppe" that nazis saw them as not European enough ?? mmk racist much) I don't know if that is actually true or not, whether Slavic people are actually part ethnically Mongolian, just something that maybe could also explain a change of features if that is the case.
I'm really surprised that most people think the standard appearance for Slavic people is blonde hair and blue eyes. It's like, I'm pretty sure that's more what the average Northern European looks like? Although there definitely is variety among Slavic people's features, if someone was to ask me what the average Slavic person looks like, I'd say like Mila Kunis or Evgenia Medvedeva, usually dark hair, sometimes dark eyes, and like olive undertones. There seems to be way more dominant traits than Northern Europeans anyways. I just really don't understand where the imagine of Slavic people, women especially, came from being portrayed as looking no different than any other generic blonde white person with no distinguishable features. (It's like news flash: we have our own ethnicity lol) Especially considering Slavic nations are like the bridge between Western Europe and Western Asia/Middle East, you'd think people would be aware of the geography.
Omg I think I’ve come across this girl’s account before. (hhaneuling ? Or something like that) I think her profile says she’s a freelance makeup artist, which seemed pretty cool to me. She is still cute, but she looks nothing like the way she photoshops herself Also I think I’d be a bit hesitant to go to a makeup artist where I can’t even really tell how their own makeup really looks if the only photos they show are photoshopped...
I stop sympathizing with someone when trying to empathize with them through similar struggles and their response is basically "well you don't know what it's like for ME so stop comparing struggles!!1!" Obviously I can only truly know my experience. And you can only know your experience. You don't know me and I don't know you. Trying to empathize with someone through similar--not identical--struggles is how everyone understands each other. Why is it such a big deal for someone to say "I've gone through X so I can imagine how you feel" as if that's somehow minimizing the other person's struggles? And it's almost always the first person who wants to actively compare pain for some reason. Like I can try to empathize or try to understand how you feel, or express how you have the right to be angry because of whatever situation, but if the entire purpose of explaining your struggles is only so people view you as helpless, rather than just looking for someone who can understand your situation, then please bark up another tree.
I'm not sure, but I think if they wanted to put the Japanese flag in their bio referring to their ethnicity, they'd almost have to put another flag because it's obvious they aren't only Japanese? (if at all?) Like regardless of whether they're lying or not, I'd think people would question them way more if they only said they were Japanese and nothing else. But even then it makes one wonder if they just decided to pick a random European country to put in their bio, since they only seem to post about their (supposed) Japanese side and never anything about the rest of their heritage? Because at least the American people I know, myself included, who describe their ethnicity being from specific countries in Europe, they can tell you which family members are from there. Otherwise if they're uncertain about their heritage, they usually will just say white or generally European since they don't know more specifically than that, since they obviously can't be ethnically American unless they're Native American.
I think they can look fine if they don't overdo it, like it can look youthful if done right. But when it's taken too far, it looks like they have huge styes in their eyes. Which are super uncomfortable, but I guess in Gangnam they'd be considered a look? #styepositivity
This older photo of Dabin reminds me of Im Soo Hyang from My ID is Gangnam Beauty from the side: I mean I guess that's how the character Mi Rae is supposed to look like anyways, like other "gangnan beauties/unnies". (I still think she's pretty tho, it's just interesting to me. Makes me wonder if she's how Dabin would look like if she didn't edit her photos so much)
This. Especially when someone is literally asked what they find attractive in a dating partner. It's like...why ask if you're afraid of someone's answer? Or try to shame them for the traits they're attracted to? This is the one aspect of your life that you can be as picky or choosy as you want.
I don't get why people say things like "they just posted X because they're seeking attention!" I mean, no shit? Does anybody post things on social media thinking "oh boy I can't wait for my followers to ignore me!" ? People need attention for their well-being. Babies can actually die from a lack of attention; it's normal for humans to want and need attention. And if someone can feel better mentally/emotionally by posting online because they don't get enough attention irl, then where's the harm in doing so? It shouldn't be a substitute for face-to-face connections, but it shouldn't be condemned so much.
