As usual, Kenna has no real identity and has to latch onto different aesthetics every year to feel like a real person 🙄 First she thought that boho and fake Buddhism would make her happy, so she was little miss free spirited tan California girl. But that didn’t work out, so next she tried Japan because she thought sakura, anime, and “kawaii” would make her happy. Obviously none of those traits are enough to bring purpose to someone’s life. So next she is going to be Parisian baguette coffee cup girl with a beret, but shocker, that’s still not a personality trait, life goal, or life meaning, so she’s going to be unhappy again and move to another country and aesthetic. This girl needs to find something in life that brings her meaning aside from heavily edited and fake aesthetics.
Does anyone else think Kenna realizes moving to Japan was a mistake but she's going to stick around for a few months just to prove us all wrong? She strikes me as the kind of person who'd live in a country just to win over us "antis" who feel she's not happy there. Kenna has yet to mention a SINGLE thing she likes about Japan, aside from things she has access to in America - Starbucks, pancakes, Disney. If there is some part of Japan that Kenna really admires like the people, the culture, or the lifestyle I'd genuinely love to hear about it.
I know a lot of people love spicy food once in a while, but... drinking tabasco straight from the bottle? Really? That's downright awful for your body. A little spice can be healthy for your body, but that much spice is going to cause acid reflux and heartburn. There's even some evidence that over-consuming spicy food can cause stomach and throat cancer. I feel even more worried because I don't really know if Venus has anyone there for her in Japan anymore. I wish she had a friend or family member who could maybe stay with her for a while, or check her into a psychiatric unit. And sure, we can all say she's an adult woman and allowed to make these awful choices, but I really feel like she needs psychiatric help at this point. Intense therapy, maybe even hospitalization. I feel like she's completely disregarding her own health and I'm worried she will be suicidal next...
One question about her new video. Where is her Japan content? Like I know she’ll always be passionate about crafting and autumn but damn, she’s been in Japan for almost a year now and she seems to barely acknowledge it. Is she afraid of being called a weeaboo? Does she realize moving there was a mistake? Is it too much for us to ask for 1 cool video on Japanese festivals, convenience stores, food, or literally anything else?
I wish Venus would take a break from social media, if not quit permanently. She seems like she's on a downward spiral. She jumped from one unhealthy relationship to the next (Margo to Manaki) and now she probably doesn't know what to do so she's acting up on the internet in a desperate cry for attention. I really want this girl to start visiting a therapist more often, form friendships that don't have to do with Youtube, and possibly go hiking or travelling or something that doesn't have to do with the internet.
Personally, what I want (and I'm assuming a lot of other PULL users) is for her to be on time with her videos. No excuses, no "oh I used copyrighted music the 50th time in a row," no skipped videos. Kenna wants to act like this is her "career" and stay in Japan because she is an "entertainer" but she is acting very low-effort with it. I don't feel like Youtubers should make promises they can't keep, any more than any other career path. If you had a 9-5 job doing anything else you couldn't keep saying "Oh! Sorry I'm 5 hours late!" every single day and expect people to forgive you... Kenna's done with her school now, and has one (1) self-chosen responsibility and it's to upload a single video every week. Sure, I bet a good number of hours can be put into making a video, but I don't see why she can't start getting her videos done 1-2 days in advance every week so they are set and ready to go by the upload time.
Seems like less editing but I still agree that her eyes are edited. A lot of instagrammers are doing this thing where they fill in the whites of their eyes. I have no idea why. But I feel like she did that... her eyes look unnaturally bright.
I don't want to blame every unusual thing Venus does on her mental disorders, since it feels kind of like I'm not taking her seriously as a person. Maybe she really does just want to post a bizarre video of her drinking wine and making a lot of allegations. But... Unfortunately people with disorders like BPD have a weird relationship with social media sometimes I have one friend who suffers from similar problems. She always posted normal photos of herself on instagram. But one day out of the blue, she posted a mirror pic of her in a VERY skimpy swimsuit. I know some girls like posting that stuff but it was so out of character for this friend. I felt really worried for her. Lo and behold, she deleted it a few hours later... This almost reminds me of Venus. She seems like sometimes she becomes a wild cannon with social media and starts posting really bizarre and out of character stuff. Maybe this is the real her and she's showing it now. But I'm worried she's just having some kind of nervous breakdown and taking it out on the internet since it's all she's had her whole life.
Kenna's been in Japan for 8 months now. Still waiting on some kind of explanation for why she's chosen to do this, because honestly none of us have any idea She doesn't like the language, she doesn't like the food, she doesn't like the culture. Starting to think her inheritance could have been used better for a 2 week trip around Asia and then some creative writing courses in California.
Are neckbeards and losers on the internet seriously so offended and horrified by sexy adult women acting like sexy adult women that they can't get it up unless the woman's dressed like a little girl, riding a stuffed unicorn, and acting like a child? 🤢
I think the reason so many neckbeards and incels like "lolis" is because they're terrified of adult women and female sexuality. An innocent 9 year old character who knows nothing about sex, who is "pure" who could be manipulated and controlled by an adult man? A-OK! A 25 year old woman who's had a sexual partner or two, likes dressing up and going out once in a while, and maybe watches porn or has a fetish of her own? Oh noooo! She has sexuality that doesn't specifically involve Joey (or whoever's fantasizing.) How horrible! (The only sexual interest she is allowed to have is watching lolicon shows or hentai with the dude since that specifically caters to his interests.)
He's being misogynistic. He wants to see pretty scantily clad women only when HE wants to. He wants to be in control of it. He wants to be able to follow women he finds pretty and be able to gawk at their bodies whenever he wants by clicking on their twitter. But normal old girls, maybe some who are average looking, dressing up to have a good time without thinking about him? Oh noooo. He only wants to see pretty naked girls when he wants to, but if it's not on his watch, it's suddenly a slutty and reprehensible. That's the thing about men. Women can only express sexuality for THEM. If a woman expresses her sexuality to have a good time with herself, or her gal pals, or because she's trying to hook up with a different guy, suddenly it's disgusting. Honestly men are terrified of female sexuality. They hate the idea that it's not the 1200's and they can't treat women like property anymore. They hate that a young single girl can decide to dress up "sluttily" and get laid if she wants. That's right Joey, you're not that hot and women are allowed to celebrate their sexuality without involving you. (Sorry for the rant but I just really hate men like this. You don't get to praise porn actresses and cosplayers online then turn around and bash women who dress up sexy one night of the year. Choose one or the other.)
I don't understand the obsession with idol's sexualities anyways, especially the obsession with everyone being gay. Of course, gay and bisexual people exist, so there are certainly idols who are gay or bisexual. That being said, most people are straight... Not because being straight is better, just because that's how nature is. I don't believe more than maybe 10% of the world's population is gay. So why do I see so many fans insisting EVERYONE in Twice is gay, except Jihyo? They do it with plenty of other male or female kpop groups too. Sure, if it's a 5-9 person group, one or two of them might be gay or bi, but everyone? A lot of people probably do it just to sexualize idols, because to them, a group of 5+ guys/girls who are in a gay relationship with each other sounds really steamy and hot. But I wish people would just leave idols alone... Their sexuality is none of our business, and we don't need to speculate on it until they decide to go public with a relationship someday. Even if there are videos of them kissing or hugging group members, we don't know whether that's them expressing affection, trying to show off to their fans, or actually being in a relationship together.
As far as I’ve heard they have the same young porn stars playing both “teens” and MILFs in separate videos, except as a “teen” they’ll wear knee highs and school uniforms and as a MILF they’ll wear a business suit or whatever. I would think the industry still probably gravitates toward younger women. (I don’t watch porn so I could be wrong!!)
I feel like Belle should have tried harder to hide her real name and come up with a fake name like the majority of porn stars. How is she going to integrate back into normal society after this? If you google her real name then PULL, Lolcow, and all of her lewds come up. While it's unfortunate, it's true that most guys will always be after younger fresher meat. There are plenty of guys who consider even 25 years to be "old" for porn stars. I think most porn stars are aware they cannot do this for more than a decade so they make sure to have other options. Belle really should think about setting aside some of her new money for college or career training.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wVbZag85Cc Ashley posted this on her side channel today. For those who don't feel like watching, she just talks about the pressure most young people feel to Instagram everything, take photos in aesthetic locations, show off online, make videos of food you're eating, and all that stuff. She decided to not film anything in her New York Trip so she could enjoy the moment with her friends. I think she is quite well-spoken and intelligent when she's not trying too hard, she just graduated from a great school after all. Honestly I agree with her video. As a college student, whenever I'm doing something fun or unique, in my head I think "I need to take a photo of this so I can post it on my instagram." But I think I have learned to limit it. I feel like apps like Snapchat or Instagram Stories make me feel pressured to post something cool EVERY DAY which is just too much for me. Instead I like posting something cool on my instagram 1-2 times per month just so I have a little digital scrapbook but it's not at the front of my head. Side note, she included a little bit of David in the video (she filmed it in New York in July.) I felt kind of sad for her having to upload that after they've split up. She probably didn't feel like going back to edit him out. It must be very bittersweet for her to upload it now. I hope she is doing well post-breakup.
Kenna was probably one of those "gifted" children in elementary school who read at a 5th grade level in 3rd grade, was praised massively for it, and stopped trying for the rest of her life because she thought she didn't need to study or learn... Which, sadly, a lot of us can relate to, especially those of us who were bookworms as a kid. However, to make it in the adult world, you need to grow out of that. You will not get a college degree, learn a new language, or become a great artist from natural talent alone, aside from maybe 1% of the world's population. You need to put a lot of work into it. I sure hope she doesn't start believing she's a "savant" because of her autism. I think that's a common misconception society has about autistic people, that tons of them are "savants." Especially when there's a lot of TV shows about it, like The Good Doctor (a genius doctor with autism) or Sherlock (people believe he has Asperger's.) Savant syndrome is incredibly rare and I don't like the conception that autistic people are no good to society unless they have amazing talent.
"I want to support their art and passions like everybody else I follow" Yeah, of couuurse it's about the art and passion. That's why you only follow conventionally attractive female cosplayers and porn stars Let's just ignore the fact that there are plenty of gorgeous male cosplayers who also put hundreds of hours into their work but you wouldn't touch them with a ten foot pole. So tired of men trying to act like their interest in porn stars/E-girls/whoever is so wholesome and pure. You like it because you want to get a boner from pretty girls. Let's call it what it is.
Kenna clearly wants to be "special" real bad. So why doesn't she... put effort into her life and become special? Like, practice artwork or writing until she is actually good at it (WITHOUT plagiarizing.) Learn Japanese, then maybe another language, and become trilingual since that's really cool and rare. Go to college and get a degree, or get career training and start pursuing a job she can feel passionate about. She has every resource available to get ahead in life and become an important person. I feel like Kenna doesn't realize that all her favorite artists and animators and poets and whoever didn't just become special, they put years and years of practice into whatever they're doing. But she is lazy and wants to be special by default. Moving to Japan as a white girl and dressing oddly are probably the only ways she is able to stand out.
I just don't really like the overly botoxed lips on anyone... It makes them look like a blow-up sex doll in a bad way She just doesn't look like a natural beauty anymore, she looks more like she was created in a plastic surgeon's office. Which she was.
I always laugh when guys try to justify their interest in clearly sexualized porn stars/E-girls/celebrities/whoever with "I like her as a Person™" Like yeah sure you do. I'm sure you'd like her a ton if she was average or below average looking and didn't post provocative photos of herself 🙄
As much as I don't like Belle I don't see a problem with her actions here? It sounds to me like some guy was being way too pushy with contacting her so she blocked him. I don't think any E-girl wants to be invited out on actual dates. And one or two fanmails is probably fine, but if someone is consistently sending them over months or years it probably gets creepy. Furthermore I'm naturally skeptical of any man online pursuing a woman. Is there more he's not telling us, for example, did he send her unwanted dick pics? There's a lot of these guys who take it too far. Unfortunately a lot of women on the internet go through this. Men mistake their sexy photos and cutesy captions as a welcoming for romantic/sexual advances, rather than a woman trying to make money on the internet from horny men.
I feel bad for Ashley too but I know this will be good for her in the long term Breakups almost always hurt, whether they were good or bad to you. Many people still feel heartbroken even after leaving toxic relationships (NOT saying they had a toxic relationship, just that breakups almost always hurt.) Eventually she will look back and realize he was just a mediocre frat boy, but for now, she has to mourn the loss of all their memories together, the future together she envisioned, etc. She might even be heartbroken for months but she'll heal and become stronger. I just hope this is a wake up call for her rather than propelling her into more negative behavior, like constant tinder hookups. (Not shaming anyone who likes to hook up, I just don't think it can be used as a replacement for all other human interaction.) Personally I find her pretty likeable when she is being more laid back and less in your face with the sex jokes. I'm sure she will make friends if she tries.
