We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
- Cancel culture has and will never be a thing, stop complaining about something that doesn’t exist. - Grown adults should have more energy bashing and calling out adults for acting like kids, not kids being kids.
Kpop stans expect WAY too much from idols and are the biggest hypocrites EVER! You can’t get mad at idols for lip syncing when you’re quick to bash others for not sounding good live. Same with visuals, getting mad that idols are starting to look to same when you attack idols who don’t fit into the idol beauty standards. They want idols to be a Beyoncé when majority are a Selena Gomez. One more thing, I will never take you seriously if you tell me you stan kpop or certain groups for vocals and talent. Cause if you stand by what you said, you wouldn’t give kpop a listen at all, including that groups with talented members that aren’t hard carried by 1-3 people (looking at a lot of big 3 groups) would be dominating instead of dying after a couple years of debut.
I agree with this so damn much. Seungri was the maknae in the group, just what the hell was going on behind the scenes for them to watch him grow up and see him become an evil person... Something terrible must’ve happened to Seungri that we don’t know about because I refuse to believe a child would do something like that when they get older without influence.
I agree with you 100% don’t worry! I recently got into kpop last year and just seeing all the stuff that has happened and been exposed this year only, it gets too much at times. When you want to talk about it with kpop stans, they will feel like you’re attacking their group and gaslight you. Like you said, you can like kpop but also be aware that it’s not all sunshine and rainbows.
What’s happening to Billie right now is why I would never let my kids into the entertainment business, and I’m glad my mom didn’t push me into it as well. Yes money is cool and all, but at what cost is it worth for a minor to get sexually/physically abused/manipulated (which happens a lot more than expected) and not have a childhood?
Girl group stans are starting to get a lot worse than boy group stans. They paint bg stans as “hating successful women” and “only stanning for their dicks” yet scream sexism and misogyny at every little thing while degrading other ggs that aren’t their faves. Not even realizing how fucked up it is and borderline misogynistic to make women feel like they have to stan ggs, I’m mentioning this because a lot of gg stans end up being men. The same men who will say the most disgusting crap about male idols and get away with it, but let it be a woman who says they don’t like this woman idol... lmfao. And yes, this is coming from a girl who likes ggs more than bgs.
White gay men are one of the most toxic, misogynistic, and racist people out there (irl and online) and it's real funny how they use their sexuality or that they stan women as a shield from the backlash. Do they not know that they still benefit from white privilege and will never face the struggles of what it's like being a woman or a person of color. I hope more people start calling them out on their bs, it's getting way out of hand these days.
- I wish there was some kind of laws that protects 18 and 19 years olds from borderline pedophiles, they’re still technically teenagers and most likely have the same mindset as their high school self. - Idc that 18-19 year olds are viewed as adults by law, but if you are in your late 20’s and up sexually attracted to them, you’re a damn creep and are very lucky you have the law on your side. Those type of people at usually the ones who will wait for a minor to turn 18 to prey on them.
Am I the only one the rise of men becoming edgy gg stans?? It’s so weird because they’re the ones who preach about “feminism” yet are the main ones who reduce women that likes boy groups as “hormonal rapid teenage fans” and say crap that goes against their so called “feminism” agenda.
I don't care if he read a comment or not, he still said it and then everyone laughed... yeah no. Plus like I said before, I personally don't care when idols wear hair styles as long as they don't turn around and insult black people/culture. My last sentence was just speaking in general about why many people don't want their culture to be shared/appropriated, there are ways like educating yourself on where it originated from and giving credits. If you want a better example, think of Bruno Mars, years ago there was a big debate on if he was a culture appropriator or not, more thought he wasn't because he always credited black artists and was inspired by them. It won't please everyone, but you will have a lot less people seeing you as a culture vulture.
Call me sensitive or whatever, but shit like this is way CA becomes a thing. https://twitter.com/v3tae/status/1155532734950977537 "Fried octopus hair" seriously, come on now it's 2019 and idols still are saying ignorant shit about my culture. I honestly stopped caring when idols wear hair styles like cornrows because they end up looking like a hot mess, but to make fun and insult when black people have been shamed for having the exact same hair styles?? Don't get me started on the amount of clueless kpop stans who say anything to defend and the infamous "but your faves did____" as if what they did suddenly cancels out or makes what the idol did less offensive. You can't expect people to be open to share their culture if you go around and make fun of it, especially when you don't even truly appreciate it and use it for your own needs.
