I swear at this point Kenna has a fetish for softbois but she just uses "aro-ace" as a codeword for it. Any time a male character is presented as being "soft" and less traditionally masculine - for example, he has a dainty body, a fragile and emotional personality, he likes a hobby like dancing or makeup - Kenna goes "OH HE'S ARO." Or maybe... he's just a guy who doesn't follow traditional masculinity norms but could still very well be a sexual person even if it's not portrayed on-screen? A guy can be emotional, gentle, wear fluffy clothes, and still get it on in the bedroom. I think this is also what draws her to gay-coded characters or actual gay characters, like Yuri On Ice. A lot of gay anime and manga feature gay men who are different from the traditional portrayal of men. They're gentle, pretty, wear cute clothes, and sometimes cry and show vulnerability. She justs likes this idea of a softboi but for some reason feels ashamed to admit her fetish? So she calls them "aro-ace" to fawn over them without admitting to it being sexual. Kenna has a bizarre relationship with sex, she clearly likes softbois but has some kind of issue admitting that it is that, a sexual or romantic interest. She goes through this whole act of pretending to admire them for being "aro-ace" but she never really shows any representation of female aro-ace characters who she should relate with more. Kenna, if you supposedly care so much about aro-ace representation, why do you specifically fawn over only male "aro-ace" characters? Honestly Kenna, a lot of people like softbois. Just come out with your fetish... no one is going to judge you, a lot will actually admire you for speaking up about your thirst.
Oh sure Kenna, you afforded all this with "budgeting" and "work." And by budgeting and work I mean that you pay for: Frappucinos, new clothes, and perhaps your Disney pass while Daddy pays for: - AirBnB rent - Home furnishings - School tuition - $30+ a day food budget (eating 2-3 meals at restaurants gets pricey real quick) - Plane tickets - Europe AirBnB away from your Japan AirBnB It's really easy to have leftover money when 100% of your income goes to fun things because your parents pay for everything else, right? Little shocker, Kenna: most of us pay for our own food, housing, tuition, and other life expenses and have maybe a few dollars leftover for fun things like new clothes or going out to eat. Quit acting like you're a self-made rich woman because you make a few hundred dollars from your videos while your parents finance literally every other aspect of your life. If it wasn't for Grandaddy's wealth you'd be living in a tiny apartment like the rest of us, or (GASP) working a full-time minimum wage job because you're too dumb and lazy to get educated for a career.
Sometimes I swear I find backup dancers hotter than the idols themselves. A lot of the male backup dancers I've seen look like they have very little makeup, little or no plastic surgery, and naturally handsome faces. I find a lot of male idols to be way too plastic surgically enhanced and it's offputting for me. I like that backup dancers just look like natural handsome men.
Can we quit it with the "it's just a joke calm down" thing? We KNOW it's a joke. But jokes can still have plenty of real implications and be problematic. We can discuss it if we find it important. My thing about mental illness is that it's okay to be mentally ill - it's okay to be anxious, depressed, bipolar, and so on whether you're successful and popular, lonely and poor, or so on. It's NOT okay to take your mental illness out on other people which is exactly what Kenna is doing. When Japan didn't cure the hole inside of Kenna she became xenophobic and insulting toward the country. When people don't bend over backwards for her she publically calls them out for being "ableist." She sits around and shows cruelty and toxicity to even her own fans because she's unhappy. If you are going to take out your mental illness on other people it is your responsibility to find a more peaceful way to cope with it.
Momoland MV's are annoying because Nancy's face is interjected every .2 seconds and you never get a chance to look at anyone else. Even when it's someone else's line they show Nancy. Yes, she is very pretty, but MMLD needs to stop treating everyone else like her backup dancers.
Damn. This is kind of sad and also like a burn to her mom's entire career and decades of work. I'm someone who really cares about the environment. If I have a daughter someday I wouldn't at all be ashamed of her having sex or having a youtube channel. But I would be ashamed of educating her on the environment her whole life then watching her turn around and form deals with some of the dirtiest companies, then encourage millions of fans to do the same. Pleeeease Ashley. Being sustainable is so cool and admirable for celebrities. Leonardo DiCaprio is a huge environmentalist (which you probably know as a film major graduate from UCLA) and everyone really appreciates him for it. You will gain a whole new fanbase if you stick to better choices than this...
I feel like I keep posting depressing rants about life here recently so sorry about that lmao. Recently I just feel like life is... just a loop 90% of days. I do the same homework every week, cook the same meals, talk about the same things with my same friends, worry about the things I always worry about. I try to spice things up by planning new things with a friend, or try studying in a new location, or finding new albums to listen to. But sometimes life feels so "samey." I realized when I'm at school usually I'm just counting down days till the next vacation because I'm tired. It feels like I'm just going through the same cycle for several weeks, waiting for whatever the next stage of life is.
Why is all her lesbian ecchi art the exact same? It's always one female character somehow squatting/sitting on/laying on some other woman. Boobs smashing into each other. Everyone has the exact same face as her other 100 drawings. Same ole boring expressions - one character looks like they're dying, one character looks bored and is sucking on something, and so on. Finger prodding unsexily at the vagina. Like certainly it gets old for her fans after a while? It's just a costume and hairstyle swap at this point. Is she just going to pump out the same thing for several years and keep making a fortune doing this?
I know it's just a joke but for me it kind of feels in poor taste? Kenna is out here, on a year-long vacation to Japan, after a month-long trip to Europe, wasting money, never worked a job in her life, about to move to Boston or some other place because she feels like it and she can. Like I'm not at all saying wealthy people can't have mental health issues. But for me it sounds like Kenna is saying ~haha my life is so miserable~ when we've never seen her have to struggle with anything at all? Like she thinks it's funny to act like her privileged life is difficult. Again I know it's just a joke so please don't come after me with "it's just a joke take it easy." But I still feel that we can hold someone's jokes to a standard.
Ugh I've been trying hard to like and defend Ashley. But she has disappointed me this time. There's still parts of her I'm willing to defend, like I don't think we should tear down a 21-year-old woman for having self esteem issues or not seeing a psychologist in the timeframe we expect. But I just can't defend her buying habits after the Amazon sponsorship. She is VERY smart and she knows perfectly well that Amazon is a very shady company that mistreats its employees. Not only that, but Amazon Prime is AWFUL for the environment because things are being shipped to you overnight which is going to require all kinds of additional fuel vs. just letting it ship in 3-5 days. Ashley is thinking about that $$$ now rather than having a good sense of ethics. I'm disappointed. I'm willing to forgive her if this was a one-time thing and she starts making better choices from now on but I'm just worried this is her descent into a shady rabbithole of unethical sponsorships. What's next, YesStyle or something? I hope she is considering that many of her fans are unhappy with this decision.
When is Kenna (and society in general) going to realize that owning more goods won't make you happy? Now, I don't mean buying a cute mug once every couple of months, or buying a decoration for your house you really like, or treating yourself with a little bit of new clothes once in a while. Of course we all need to buy new things once in a while to get by. I mean Kenna's habit of buying books she won't read, buying plants that she's inevitably going to kill, buying cheap clothes from the internet that are going to fall apart, furniture that she's only going to use for 12 months, cooking equipment she's never going to cook with, and so on. Kenna, if you're reading this, want to know why you haven't achieved the happiness you've been searching for? It's because your method of "searching" has been to buy, buy, buy. Try something else in your life... Try searching for things you can't buy, like friendship, or passion for a hobby, or curiosity for a new topic.
Honestly I feel like everything that can be said about YandereDev has been said because he has accomplished nothing in the past 6 years or so aside from stirring up stupid drama every few months, like making his special Gremlins video or having some other kind of public meltdown. I'm low-key going to stop following anything he does because it's over. He's going to continue milking those sweet Patreon bucks for 2-3 more years then just retire to his anime pillow collection. Upcoming monthly updates are going to be stupid and pointless like: - play tic-tac-toe on Ayano's phone - change the color of Ayano's socks - give police woman bigger boobs - use music club's guitar as a weapon The only thing I'm excited for is to see Yandere-Dev finally fail and give up at some point, but I wonder if he'll even go out with a bang. I can see him just fading into obscurity and taking a public hiatus for a while. I feel like there will be no happy ending to the development of this game. We can at least hope now that the idea is out there a fan or a more talented studio will take the idea and complete it to release.
Kenna's too lazy to actually message and meet up with people to sell her furniture so most of it is probably going in the trash. She's rich so she doesn't care if she loses a few thousands of dollars of furniture. She'll do the same thing in Boston, London or wherever she decides to move next. She should consider donating it or maybe just have a more minimalist lifestyle from now on. Don't buy tons and tons of crap if it's only going to last you a few months.
Also going off on my tangent about my body type rant but... I feel like I'm much too soft and curvy to relate to skinny petite fashion influencers but I'm not quite "plus-sized" either. I'm at this awkward in-between point. I've been looking for a fashion youtuber or instagrammer with a similar body type and size to me. I have big hips and boobs and some softness but I'm not like "plus-sized" ya know? Most of the fashion influencers I find are very skinny and petite, but if I type in "curvy" all that comes up is plus-sized women (which is cool but not the kind of fashion help I need.) Does anyone know of any fashion influencers with a body shape and size roughly around these women? Spoilered to not take up too much room:
I feel bad for saying this as a Mamamoo fan and I think they deserve every bit of fame they have. But for some reason I just don't notice Wheein that much. Maybe it's because I find Hwasa, Solar, and Moonbyul to have really unique memorable faces whereas Wheein looks just like another pretty Korean girl to me. Hwasa has really intense facial features and a unique body for K-pop, Solar looks really cute with her chubby cheeks and bright smile, and Moonbyul has the whole tomboy thing going on. But for some reason I just don't notice much about Wheein aside from her singing. (I don't really know anything about any of their personality because I only follow their music and MV's so I can't comment on their personality, only appearance and musical skills.) Although I do want to notice Wheein more because she's still a valuable member of the group!
