    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.

    They'll have sagging eyelids by the time they're 30 if they keep that up.

    It didn't seem like that's what they were saying at all. They said "Common language makes it easy to make it about purity vs impurity." Which it sounds to me that they're saying depending how people discuss ethnicity/race, some people might get a warped impression that they're making it about "purity vs. impurity", rather than just different groups your heritage traces back to. Pretty sure they implied the opposite of what you're assuming.

    I agree especially her recent pictures look so...inhuman. I mean how did she go from this:
    To this:
    To now this, having her face look like it was copy + pasted onto her head:
    I actually do think her lip fillers look fine, but having a V-line surgery just seems so unnecessary. And the way she edits her face in general makes her look quite creepy nowadays  Tbh if it was me who ran into her I would probably ask her for a photo since I still do consider myself a fan of her in a way, but I feel like she wouldn't want to get photos taken of her that she can't edit herself... Idk she seems like a nice person but it seems like she definitely could have body dysmorphia.

    I know BMI isn't always accurate in general, like someone who has a lot of muscle could be considered overweight or obese since it doesn't take into account muscle weight vs. weight in fat. And I know it does depend on a person's frame size too, so if someone has a small frame then they could probably technically be in the underweight category and still be healthy. I'm not EA but I have a small frame and would be considered underweight by BMI standards, even thought I've been told I'm healthy, but I don't think a BMI under 16 would be healthy for anyone tbh. I've never heard of a whole separate BMI for EA tho.

  6. disappointedwitch added a post in a topic General "non Asians pretending to be Asian" thread   

    Looking at it from a psychological perspective instead of a sociological one, I think it's a mix between having an obsession with Asia and also being super insecure about their appearance. I could be wrong, but I think what happens a lot with these people is that they get so consumed with what is considered ideal beauty traits in somewhere like Korea, while also excessively comparing themselves to it to the point where they come to the subconscious delusional conclusion that they'd be more attractive if they looked Asian. Which is obviously ridiculous since there's attractive and unattractive people of any ethnicity. But they only see celebrities who are of course going to be conventionally attractive, so they also probably assume that most Korean people look like Jennie Kim or G-Dragon, if they never actually have had any exposure to Asian people outside of popular media. To a certain extent, it makes sense when a young person does something like that if they're at that awkward stage of trying to fit it in general (think like middle school clique awkwardness), although going about it completely wrong. But it's even more concerning when someone who is a whole ass grown adult does it. It's like they're perpetually at that awkward stage of being someone else because they're not comfortable with themselves, which is actually pretty sad. But that's just my hypothesis lmao there could be other explanations.

    Woah seriously? Wow I never would've thought she'd be that short... Like I know people will exaggerate their height, but I think she claimed to be around 5'4" and that's a huge difference from 4'11". I guess her weight being so low would make her a little more healthy this way at least, instead of a BMI of 15.4 it would be around 18.2. (also lowkey wish I could see gangnam unnies irl at least to see how different they look from their photos)

    I just scrolled back a few pages and yeah I see now more of the pics that were posted and it really does look like he shooped himself so people hopefully mistake him for being Korean or something lmao. I hadn't really kept up with this thread but I can see why he'd belong here. It's one thing to like Kfashion and whatnot but it's another for him to try to morph himself into a wannabe-ulzzang-type mold. I could see him possibly being part Jewish, based on the few details we can actually see, but not really much of East Russian. At the same time he could be claim to be a lot of things, but without a clear photo or some other type of real proof there's no reason to believe him.

    The kid above may be bullshitting, but I do have a friend from high school who is Russian and most people have assumed he's Chinese. Russia is so huge that it definitely can't just be thought of as one ethnic group. There are smaller ethnic groups in Russia/Siberia who's features look similar to native ethnic groups in Alaska or other Asian ethnic groups, rather than Slavic features. For example, the Yakuts, Kets, Evenkis, Nenets, etc. I won't show a picture obviously, but he looks similar to the people in these photos of indigenous groups in Russia:
    But whether that kid is actually part East Russian, not sure, especially when he won't even show a full clear photo of his face.....

    I've had convos with people on Twitter who go on and on about themselves being black and about black history (in a self-absorbed kind of way) and I mentioned once to her about being Slavic and Slavic history and she was just like "lol as if i care". And with people who have that kind of attitude it makes one think, ok then, if you have no interest in literally any other ethnicity but your own, why should others care about yours? It was pretty ridiculous, but then again most of Twitter is pretty ridiculous anyways.

    I don't think it's cringey for someone to become interested in Japan because they started watching anime or interested in Korea because of Kdramas. If writers use a setting effectively, then people being interested in it is a good thing. If people can become interested in New York City because of series like Gossip Girl or movies like Breakfast at Tiffany's, Britain because of Harry Potter, (hell, I got interested in Pennsylvania because of Pretty Little Liars) then I don't think series/movies taking place in Asia is much different. Of course that doesn't mean that fiction=reality, or that an entire country can be represented in a small piece of media, so that doesn't mean that people should think Japan is exactly like it's portrayed in anime because it obviously isn't, but there's nothing wrong with being introduced to a new location through pop culture and wanting to learn more about it.

    I watched that video too, it made me really sad. Those people she was living with couldn't have been real friends, it just seemed like they were just using her so she could pay most of their rent  I just hope she can find better friends in the future.

    That is Dabin on the right lol. She's friends with the girl on the left (IG: @yoou.ch), they have a few photos together. But this one is older I think, which must have been when the photoshop wasn't pushed to such an extreme for her, which is why she might not be totally recognizable  Dabin has her own thread too btw.

    It seems hypocritical when people get offended over someone using the term retarded to describe something that's just foolish, when they themselves use the terms stupid, idiot, moron, imbecile, cretin, etc. all of which, including retarded were once used as psychiatric terms to describe different levels of intellectual disability. None of these terms are used anymore to actually describe learning disabilities, yet most people only consider "retarded" a slur out of many more commonly used words that were once used to describe the same thing.

    Can we please take the discussion about this Denise chick to her own thread (if she has one) or the general Koreaboo thread? This seems quite irrelevant here. And please be able to actually back up your claims please and thank you since the IG claims are obviously kinda bs

  16. disappointedwitch added a post in a topic Michelle Moé   

    Omg I remember this girl. I think I was following her a long time ago bc I liked her style, but if I remember correctly all she'd do is like reblog sponsored posts and her own selfies too much so it got boring fast and unfollowed her lol.
    Whether she really is a fetishizer I'm not sure, but if her and Michelle really are friends, why would she publicly call her out when she could just talk to her privately? I mean I know everyone seems to get hyped up when they hear about someone getting publicly dragged, but if people really are friends, then I don't think putting a friend on blast is the best way to handle any issue. If anything it would just make Michelle look like an asshole who can't civilly discuss between her and her friend why something is an issue, but rather just publicly shame someone until they change, which I don't think Michelle would do to someone who is actually her friend.
    Also only like 1 in every 15 photos or more is of her bf, so it's definitely not "mostly pics of her oppar" so....? This sounds more like a personal vendetta tbh.....

    Not to revive a dead thread, but Zell no longer proclaims their totally true half-Japanese identity in their Twitter bio. Are they finally ready to come clean? Lol

    I don't know why this is an unpopular opinion, but I find it comical when people say things like "I'm a poc, therefore I'm unable to be racist!" Racism literally comes from the mindset of viewing another race inferior to your own / your own race as superior to another. What race you personally are doesn't matter. Just because someone can make the argument of "institutional racism" it doesn't cancel out the fact that literally anyone can hate another person solely because of their race. I mean hell, slavery has existed on literally every continent except Antarctica, so you can't say that only white people have the capability to view another ethnicity as inferior.
    Similarly, women who openly hate men and when someone calls out their BS, they say some shit like "I'm a woman and women haven't had the same right as men historically blah etc etc so therefore I can't be sexist!" Whether women have be collectively denied rights by the government, especially in the past, doesn't mean that you are incapable of hating someone just because of their sex (i.e. being sexist). Bobby working at McDonald's didn't do anything to you girl, so just chill.

  22. disappointedwitch added a post in a topic Princessmei   

    I remember when she posted videos of how she dyes her own hair, and then I remember her saying in a video after she started going to that salon "don't ever bleach your hair yourself, go to a salon because they know what they're doing" and I couldn't help thinking that the only reason she'd say that is because she can either get it done for free, or is rich enough to always pay someone to get it done (and getting your hair as light as Mei has it for pastel colors takes a lot of time and therefore a lot of $). Like I get it if she feels like she doesn't know what she's doing with bleach, but there's plenty of people who do their own hair and it turns out fine. Not everyone can afford an expensive salon treatment, or have friends who do it for free.

    I think he photoshopped his eyes too close together in the second pic. Which using an app like B612, it's pretty easy to do, and pretty easy to go overboard and get to the uncanny valley...

    I also enjoy her grwm vids, but I wish she'd mix it up with more of her grwm storytimes. This last grwm she did seem more lively tho, like she genuinely was happy to make the video. I wish she'd do more videos like the one where she was talking about funny stories from her childhood, that was hilarious.
