    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

    Although more ostentatious kawaii fashion isn't trendy anymore, there are definitely shops that carry more interesting pieces than the ones they visited and ultimately purchased from. Honestly the outfit looks like stuff I've bought from forever 21.
    I think a lot of brand stores won't allow filming inside, so that could be a reason they skipped them?

    She's definitely taking advantage of photography angles, posing, and editing to exaggerate her proportions.
    The photos showcasing her waist are all against plain backgrounds (like here), making it easy to edit, and even in the videos she is hardly moving which also makes them easily editable as well.

    eta: yeah, it's really subtle but in pics with straight lines you can see the warping a little

    Also a lot of people of instagram use an arched back pose to force perspective more, which makes the waist look smaller and a thigh gap more severe. Beyond that most beauty apps have leg stretching and liquify type tools built in for additional fixes. It's surprisingly easy to edit everything in a photo and still have it appear real.
     
    I'm guessing she writes True Beauty based off some of her own experiences similarly to the ex-ulzzang who writes Lookism? So maybe it's safe to assume she knows how to put forward a typically attractive appearance through the use of makeup, surgery, and other enhancements.

    Some of his tweets are funny but he definitely goes way overboard. One of my friends is a big fan but was blocked from one of his previous accounts since their name was in Korean and he assumed they were a kpop troll. I found that extremely obnoxious and assumptive, kind of xenophobic honestly.

    Potentially uninformed comment but were the Japanese brand items she mentions getting thought Zenmarket subsidised by them or something?
    She mentions several hundred dollars worth of stuff in the video and I found it interesting considering her ebegging habits. She says she's not into lolita fashion and the magic amulet dress could sell for ~$200 easily--which again, makes me confused how she could afford it in the first place.

    Until he condemns hate instead of directly supporting+providing a platform to noted Islamaphobes and other bigots, he cannot detach himself from hate crimes that result from this promotion. The normalization of bigotry has fully contributed to these hateful acts of terror and he is clearly a part of the phenomenon.

    This 100%.
    This man has repeatedly propagated white supremacist rhetoric and supports the individuals directly cited by the terrorist responsible for the bloodshed. His apologies are empty and he does not deserve all this coddling, his actions reveal everything.

    nitpick but I got pretty distracted by her camera constantly going out of focus, and general shakiness despite having it on a tripod to help stabilize. she should better learn to use her camera if she wants to vlog like this.

    How much of a "team" do they possibly need? They operate the camera for each other both at home and while vlogging and use pretty basic editing on their videos. Fulltime youtubing is weird shit.

    I've watched some of Annika's videos and enjoy them as someone very new to sewing, is disabled, and trying to avoid purchasing so much fast fashion as well. I hadn't looked at her instagram before--the aesthetic pills pic is really uncomfortable. I get the premise of wanting to destigmatize medication but I don't think treating it as an ~aesthetic~ is any better? It's more commodifying than anything tbh.

    I'm not a fan of blogs that center around being a spoonie rather than normalizing or being an activist for disability either. They typically seem self-pitying and glorifying of sickness instead of treating like an aspect that you can overcome.

    I can only imagine how absurd the super thick liner/lashes, overlined lips, and weird chisled nose contour look in person.
    Also I can't believe you didn't include the funniest god damn post from her:

    Read the comment two above yours homegirl, unless you're making everything yourself from scratch or living on a commune, none of the products you consume are truly ethical. Continually shilling this is a moot point.
    Not to mention she's hardly "promoting" these companies as she often shows that their cheap items are too good to be true. And no, she is not accepting sponsorships from them? She's pretty well outlined that she picks and chooses sponsors and is capable of purchasing products/services independent of any partnership.

    I find that compared to other youtubers who produce similar content, Safiya definitely comes across more friendly and down to earth, and despite the professional nature of her videos doesn't seem stiffly rehearsed. I also like that she's open about clickbait type content and that when she jumps on a trend bandwagon, often tries to put a spin on it to prevent it from being so tedious. If I were to offer critique I'd say some of the shopping videos (on wish etc) were unimaginative and the goofy faces in makeup videos can be tiring.

    ID is necessary for a number of situations yes, driver's license, birth certificate, and passport are the usual options but you can get a government ID if you don't drive too. In some cases you could use something like a school ID but not for travel or government agencies.
    So yeah, with an expired license and no passport she's really fucked. I can't believe she's nearly 30 and doesn't have a handle on these things.

    The comments on the vid are....embarrassing, to put it nicely.

    Jill sure is eager to publicize her relationship when it's not with a girl lol
