    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.
    • Reputation Has Increased!   07/06/20

      Hello. You have been asking for it and it is finally here. We have increased the number of reputation given in a day from 25 to 50. We will see how well 50 works out and if that is enough. Please continue to provide feedback and we will reevaluate as needed. This change has been added to the site changes thread located here. Happy repping. Thank you.

    Yeah, the bangs don't really do it for me... they are neither really there nor really flimsy? I think proper full bangs or grown out bangs would suit her better... They honestly look like a bad accident. Except she's been keeping them like this on purpose for a while
    I can't shake the feeling Yasu played a big part in her dropping out of Bunka. It would make sense if he reinforced her self-doubts about staying able to pull off Bunka, in order to gain more control about her. I get that Mikan was really overwhelmed by the workload on top of her mental health issues and all of that in a foreign country/language. But dropping out with no new "plan" and then moving in with someone she's only known for a few months with screams "bad idea". Of course a manipulator would approve of having a dependent stay-at-home trophy girlfriend, so he's satisfied. But gurrrrl, you gotta think ahead and plan for your own future. Props for deciding to go see a therapist, tho.
    On a side note, I don't think Vina is actually refusing to move back to Europa, like Venus is. I think she would prefer to stay in Japan, and having a boyfriend who lives in Japan is usually motivation enough. It's just sad this boyfriend seems like such a shitty gaslighter and she's not seeing it. It might be possible that Yasu is "only" a ruthless *sshat who thinks he's entitled to the "most famous" woman he can manage to fall for him and now that he's achieved that, he's settling. Buuuut... it's really creepy to hear how he's behaved in the past, not gonna lie. Mikan really did get stuck in the Venus flytrap, huh.

    Margaret posted a new video...
    I'm not really sure what to make of it, but it's between hilarious and cringe?! There are some references to Venus thrown in, too.
    Anyone care to analyse this?!

    Ok guys...
    So just because someone creates a PULL account and makes some claims, that's suddenly a good source? The users SimpleShineGya and _sayoshigure_  freshly joined PULL this week. This week. Does this not raise any suspicions here? We're just gonna take their word 100% on the matter? And that's that?
    I'm all for good tea, that's why I'm on this website, but... we have literally no receipts except for one (1) tiny screenshot of Yasu writing "Love you". If you make claims like this and you have the receipts, you have some proof... go and dish, by all means. Show and tell. But I'm not convinced at this point. Right now it's just claim against claim. And of course people would lean towards claims against someone they don't like. But that's not proof, that's just preference and wishful thinking. (Also why did the "friend" of Yasu's ex post the screenshot and not the ex herself? Especially since the supposed ex-gf joined PULL too.)
    I mean... I'm used to deep digging and meticulous photoshop proof and downright journalistic research on PULL... but now we just accept the claims of two freshly joined users like it's written in stone? Um... no.

    Ok but can we talk about how her face (in the introduction where she has bangs) looks very weird and kind of "stiff"? 
    To me it doesn't seem like she is simply too stressed to fake some enthusiam about the towelkini video, it seems like she can't move her face muscles very well??? I suspect that when she filmed this intro part she had some face lifting shortly before (botox possibly?). It's said that people have trouble making their normal facial expressions after injections. I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case, but I wasn't prepared for her to look so smooth and kind of... hollow? Especially compared to how she smiled in the older footage when she was shopping with Safiya. I actually do like the bangs on her, but in combination with this lack of facial expression it's unsettling.

    She had so many possibilities to have a doll-Taylor-esque look for this ad and she went with THIS?

    I don't see any contradiction there. It could be as simple as this: He USED to be absent at night due to his job's night-shifts and then later quit his job. Voila.

    It takes an abuser to know an abuser, huh?
    Shame on Margo for pushing Venus onto Manaki for marriage and being such a control-freak-mother in the first place

    Your comment sums everything up I wanted to point out!
     
    I am surprised by her no make-up, not fancy editing no nothing way of doing this comeback video (as opposed to her super heavily edited IG posts lately in the same phase). But ok, drives the point home of being honest and "coming clean" so why not! The message she gives is important!
    I was kind of expecting an explanation on what the hell she was thinking when she had the Malice.exe phase. But I'm hella glad that she realized this was so not happening and not working out. Glad to see her grow and heal, glad to see her return to non-Malice!

     
    And now speculation time...
    In regards to Manaki: Venus points out that she is still married to him, she asks people to stop contacting him but...what she DOESN'T say is interesting. She doesn't say they are still together, or still in love, or still living in the same apartment...she just states that they are still married. Like the "hamsters ate him" comment, it sounds like an indirect way of admitting they are not a couple anymore but technically remain married for her visa. Just my take on it.

    Saw this under her first video on her new Japanese-only channel.
     
    PS: The comments under her video are mainly from her English-speaking fans, lmao. That backfired. I doubt she will gain a significant Japanese following. Also the video seems kinda weird and confusing in terms of structure? Was it supposed to be VLOG? It's kinda all over the place, no neat transitions etc. (Cannot judge the language part.)

    I really don't see where you guys think Rachel had surgery done? Like, not at all? She talked about correcting her nose for health stuff and then some more for aesthetics when she's at it. Yes, the nose job is obvious. But other than that I think you guys are honestly making this up. Seems paranoid to me?
    For Taylor R I can understand the criticism, there was lenghty and believable analysis with extensive research and photo proof. Yep, I'm totally convinced. But I seriously see nothing wrong with Rachel's face? Angles, lighting and heavy make-up vs no make-up can make SUCH a difference! Hell, I look like I had surgery when I go full-out with make-up and posing as compared to my everyday potato face with no care for angles.
     
    Concerning the videos, I'm really disappointed by the video draught. You'd think they'd be settled in after the move now and would put in some work for their fanbase. Some "real" videos other than raising money for a dog or unpacking boxes with stuff for their cats... Like, there's nothing wrong with a few casual videos about your cats or a low-key Vlog here and there. But it's really been some time since they moved.
    Well if they aren't in need for the money, I guess it's pretty tempting to cease creating high-effort content. I get it. It's just... a bit lame. I mean they practically have TWO kitchens for Jun's cooking videos now! And they moved to Fukuoka to escape their loneliness, and as seen in Micaela's IG, they have definitely met with their friends there... I honestly expected more and sooner at that, not gonna lie. Hope they use their downtime well and come back stronger, it'd be a shame to just see them letting their past years' work die slowly but surely.
     
    As for the thing with having kids, that's a tad too personal for my opinion and should be excluded from the discussion. This is literally 0% of anyone's business other than Rachel's and Jun's. And even if it weren't, there is no pressure whatsoever to start at a certain age with having kids or to even have kids at all. Especially nowadays it's absolutely medically manageable to have kids late in life. And if Rachel and Jun had serious disagreements whether or not they want kids, they will figure it out without gossip anyway.

    I feel like how Tay and Tom handled the situation was less than ideal and they don't even seem to notice it.
    They were so caught up in trying to fight off accusations, "clearing their names" and stressing how "everything is legal" that both of them overlooked the most important point: That it's tasteless and outright creepy to feature underage girls in a men's magazine.
    However legal and un-connected to them as it may be, no matter if the underage model in question posts such revealing pictures of herself on her own IG - it is just WRONG to promote the sexualisation of minors. Saying "it's not inappropriate if there are just pictures of her in an article" is very close to saying "guns don't kill people, people kill people!". Of course making an article about this minor was not directly doing anything illegal, but why would you spread her images on a site where it's obviously in a context of sexualisation? They put the metaphorical gun (underage girl) in a metaphorical shooting range (men looking at pictures of sexy women for entertainment).
    I do somewhat understand that Tay felt the need to use her platform to defend her people. But it would have been a bazillion times better if she and Tom would have taken a hard look at the situation, re-evaluated their stance and then acted accordingly FIRST (removing the article and ordering the staff of the online magazine to avoid all mention of underage models). And then, afterwards, it would have been a good PR move to address the rumor, say what you've done and why you would defend it, but still act ethically and changed something.
    It just makes them both look bad. And very unneccessarily so.

    Now that Venus is openly out as bisexual... I can't help but wonder whether she and her friend Mikan Mandarin (Vina? is that her name? who is also openly bisexual) would at some point have become a couple, hadn't Mikan come together with her boyfriend Hiro in the meantime.
    Her and Venus' dirty jokes and their level of trust just always struck me as "clicking" more than well - they definitely had a "possibly more than friends" chemistry at some point(s). Of course that's just my interpretation and kind of pointless with both of them being in other relationships. Oh well.

    I didn't catch why the video of the matching pet costumes (Taylor as Princess Leia & Rosie as a wookie and so on) wasn't uploaded...?? What's the story behind that?

  15. GrumpyCat added a post in a topic General Venus Angelic Thread #3   

     I take back what I said on the Video Thread. She came so far only to "normalize" her behavior again!!! WHAT. THE. F*CK.
    People on her IG spread BS like "Haters gonna hate, they are just jealous!" Smh.
     
    Venus: Constantly posts videos and IG captions about her weight, about losing weight, about dieting, her surgery, feeling bad about her weight, making food challenges, you name it. The list goes on and on.
    Also Venus: Everything normal, I got tested, like once, and the spreadsheet said no! Lolz guys, y u mad?
    ^ This. This exactly!
     
    I don't want to drag her down, I don't want to see flaws where there are none. It's just so frustrating to see a young girl that is already very thin being solely concerned with her weight. She actually never was overweight, not once. She looked perfectly fine during her blonde-hair-Netherlands phase.
    It amazes me how one week she spills the beans about her weight loss surgery and her - still topical -  concerns to stay thin, revealing her issues....and then glosses over all of that and claims everything is normal.
    I bet she compares herself to Mikan Mandarin (stick-thin skinny) and Taylor R (tall, toned and skinny, Model)...and just about every thin Japanese girl. It hurts to see her struggle so much with self-acceptance. Self-acceptance and self-love are tough cookies for just about everyone. But it's kinda sad to see her struggle "out in the public".
