    I wonder if you could un-photoshop her pictures? Like edit them to be what she'd actually look like, since we know she probably won't post any un-edited pics anytime soon
    Also I'm curious if this is like an official ID photo? Because how can you get an ID pic photoshopped that's obviously not for personal use? Assuming it is photoshopped at least.

    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.

    A bit OT but:
    Also I hope Jasmine's baby is raised well. Like I hope being a mother will help sober up Jasmine's delusions.

  8. disappointedwitch added a post in a topic People pretending to be Slavic/Eastern European Thread   

    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.

  9. disappointedwitch added a post in a topic People pretending to be Slavic/Eastern European Thread   

    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.

    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.

  21. 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.....
