Dear god, what version of the Sims is this?! That's not a real person's face. Listen up, Kenna: You Don't Look Like That It's not your face and it never will be. Please go visit a doctor about your facial dysmorphia and """"autism"""".
Wow Kenna, what a cute and quirky meme about autism! You're so charming and silly and "not like other girls"! You didn't just cut your hair, you YEETED it because MUH AUTISM! Now that you've been parading autism as a fashion accessory for several months now, why not use your platform for actual good? For example, why not share the stories of some autistic people who came from working class backgrounds, or people of color? The struggles of severely autistic people in finding and keeping jobs? The types of autism that can be extremely debilitating rather than just being a quirky little tidbit to throw at your haters? Imagine being a rich white girl who's about as interesting as unseasoned uncooked chicken breast so you APPROPRIATE a DEVELOPMENTAL DISORDER to add a little zest to your personality and avoid coping with the fact that you're a spoilt nobody who's going nowhere in life. Oh dear.
Obviously there's been a lot of controversy over JYP telling Jihyo and the idol on Nizi Project (forget her name) to lose weight. I just think it's funny that in his infamous song, Who's Your Mama, he sings about how much he loooves a big booty and curves on a woman but then this is his example in the video lmao:
(Btw this is not to body-shame her, there is absolutely nothing wrong with having small hips or a small booty! They're great in their own way, I just think it's hypocritical of JYP to sing about booties but body shame girls with actual thiccness.) I guess by JYP saying he loves a "booty," he means borderline-anorexic young girls who probably have been pressured into eating disorders. Just look how much weight ITZY has lost since they debuted. Can't help but feel it has something to do with JYP, who thinks eating one meal a day makes you a better "dancer."
Since Kenna struggles to understand why a pandemic with a low mortality rate is a big deal, look at it this way Kenna: According to the NHIS, the rate of autism is around 2-3%. Does autism matter when such a "small" amount of people have it? As a society of millions of people, should we make special changes for "only" 2-3%? Does 2-3% deserve safe spaces, or a lot of media attention? Why do you talk so much when "only" 2-3% have autism? Funny how you couldn't give a fuck about 2-3% when it's not you, but when it IS you you can't shut up about it and expect everyone to bend over backwards for you. (Also obviously autism matters and we should pay attention to it - I'm just using it as an example of a "small" group of people who's worth paying attention to, like coronavirus.)
Someday Kenna's going to be old, alone, unloved, stuck in some nursing home. Not because she's asexual, but because she's an asshole and no one's going to put up with it in a couple of decades. Maybe it'll be a swanky nursing home on the beach - but she'll be alone, nonetheless. Alone with her money, if she hasn't spent it all up by then. If there's a pandemic of this scale again (there probably will be unless the world gets its healthcare under control) she'd better hope young people don't say, "Well, it's a pandemic but it only kills old people, so who really cares, right? I know, let's go on a roadtrip, touching the same gas station pumps as the nurses and doctors heading into the hospital every day, all across the country! I don't really care who it kills as long as it doesn't kill me." Selfish people like Kenna are the reason this pandemic is going to go on way longer than necessary. Btw Kenna, try reading recommendations from the CDC or WHO, not Twitter or wherever the hell you got your "facts."
Warning: game rant ahead lol I liked Persona 3 and Persona 4 a lot but I haven't played Persona 5. I don't know if I'm going to, because I feel like the series is turning into too much of a waifu game. Every time I see clips of Persona 5 it's like they tried to add more and more waifus. The girls in the main cast, the lolis from the velvet room, your teacher, the doctor, and in new Persona 5 Royal trailer, there's sexy boss battles now and a new waifu added to the main cast. I'm not saying it's not a good game or the story, art, music, etc aren't good but as a female gamer i don't really like the feeling that they're inserting as many waifu bait characters that they can? It just makes it feel kind of creepy and like the game isn't marketed toward me... Can anyone who's played the game tell me this isn't the case? I just feel the game is trying to throw as many waifus at you as possible.
Come on guys, Kenna's obviously a biology expert, remember when she spent like $30 on a cute plant picture book in Japan? Her entire herbalist phase? Buying houseplants? Of course she knows better than the WHO or CDC and should be educating all of us. Joke's aside, Bitchsune's last biology class was quite literally TEN YEARS AGO, freshman year of high school. How much do you want to bet she doesn't even know what a virus is? Kenna's going to go one of two routes now: 1. "But muhh autism! Sometimes I make mistakes like traveling cross-country because I'm just a widdle awwtistic girl uwuwuwuwuwu Criticizing me or disagreeing with my false scientific information is ABLEIST." 2. Doubling down on trying to look like a credible source by screenshotting the CDC or something.
People focus too much on the difficulty of K-pop dances when I think a simple "easy" dance can be effective. So many iconic K-pop dance moves are simple... Twice's TT, Blackpink's bazooka in Kill This Love, Momoland's lil hip shaky thing with their hands in front of them in Bboom Bboom (sorry idk what to call it lol.) It's cool to see really intense dances as well but some of them make me really concerned for the wellbeing of the idols, especially ones that involve a lot of stuff like dropping to your knees over and over. It's gotta hurt, especially doing that for weeks straight to learn and promote the song. I forget which idol it was but I remember reading about an idol who was only like 20 yet they were having to get injections in their knees and take medication because of their knee problems from dancing. It made me really sad and it's probably more common than we realize
Is it just me or is it kind of annoying when youtubers moan too much about their job? Like, they chose to become a youtuber and broadcast their whole life... they have job flexibility that most people could only dream of... she's affording her own apartment in NYC at age 21 while most people her age are struggling to pay off undergrad loans, find a minimum wage job, and living with 3 roommates in a shitty environment. I'm not saying youtube isn't hard work or that youtubers aren't allowed to have parts of it they dislike but it's like, if she was happy back then, why not go back to it? Quit youtube, get a normal day job, and walk goats or whatever on the weekend. No one's holding you at gunpoint forcing you to do this as a job.
I can't stand the makeup looks that Hyuna and E'dawn have most of the time... I think they're going for a "heroin chic" look (sick, just woke up after a long night of partying, possibly on drugs) but it looks really bad to me, personally. Maybe it's supposed to be kind of reactionary to the healthy, young makeup looks that most k-pop stars wear? Not sure. (Note: this is not an attack on either of them as artists or people, I just don't like their makeup.)
Sorry if this is kind of armchair-y but I wonder if "romanticize" is Ashley's code word for fixating on random things to avoid the anxiety she feels toward life. Constantly moving toward some sort of goalpost lets you avoid most existential dread. Once she reaches one goalpost she sets for herself, she starts looking for the next. Graduating college in 3 years, finding an apartment in LA, so on. Now that she reached this huge, lifelong goal of moving to NYC, then finding a suitable apartment to live in, all at the age of 21, she probably panicked, not knowing what to do next... so she regressed a few steps and began fixating on a past goalpost, dating a white boy she left behind in LA. This goalpost has the bonus of being probably unattainable, considering he lives on the opposite end of the country that she just left, but maybe that's just what she needs to avoid the crippling anxiety that is growing up and truly being on your own in the world for the first time. Why think about things like how scary and hard it is to be in a huge city on your own, or how you don't have many deep friendships with other women, or you don't know the point of your post-grad life or career as a youtuber, when you can just whittle away the hours chatting up some dude across the country and planning your next sex session? He's like a predictable, familiar, security blanket from your childhood and it's so easy to cling onto the same old blanket rather than moving on in life. (I'm only mentioning this as someone who used to stay in dramatic relationships, because they distracted me from confronting my own problems in life. Time flies when you're feeling in love and/or heartbroken by someone else, for example, a past fling on the other end of the country.)
Why would you start a long-distance relationship .5 seconds after voluntarily moving ACROSS THE COUNTRY like whaaaaat...?? There's certainly thousands and thousands of lonely white men in their 20's on Tinder in NYC? And quit preaching feminist ideals like "How I learned to be happy while single" or whatever when you're Facetiming some mediocre white dude and giggling like an anime character as your nipple slips out of your dress? I've defended Ashley a lot of times but ughhh. I just do not get this. I don't. And sorry but he should not be traveling across the country in the middle of a PANDEMIC to like... bake brownies and have sex? I guess? Or maybe that's why he did this - maybe it only cost him $50 to get tickets to NYC in the middle of a pandemic. But I bet he'll be singing a different tune once things go back to normal and tickets are $500, unless Ashley is paying for all of this, which wouldn't shock me. And why is she so readily advertising all of this on social media, is this to make David jealous? Is this to prove to her audience that she can score men even in the middle of a pandemic? I don't get it.
Your GPA really depends on your major and it's not fair for people to act like all GPA's are equal. Someone with a 3.9 in "Nordic Studies" or whatever is not necessarily smarter, a better student, or better prepared for a future career than an electrical engineer with a 3.1. (This isn't to say that the arts and humanities are useless - just that from my experience, they tend to have a lot more "easy A" classes whereas I've been in plenty of STEM classes where only 10-15% of people get an A.)
