    • 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.

    Taylor doesn’t even seem that educated herself tbh. I don’t believe she has anything of value to tell these people. “Marry a rich man and get plastic surgery to look how he likes! Spend your days decorating your multi million dollar apartments around the world!” 
    I’m not sure what she’s talking about but it looks really cringe from the photos.

    Yeesh why does her art style change between literally every sprite of herself she creates?
    And why are none of them better than the last? Why update it constantly if it looks awfully shitty each time?

    I can imagine Kenna trying to get free labor from fans. She thinks she's so famous that being around her should be enough of a blessing without pay. 
    This is just like how she shouted out @xenia.lau saying how great they are and kissing their ass instead of contacting them to set up a shoot like it says on their insta profile.

    Damn what's the point of having a store if she's not even going to stay in LA? 
    I guess she's wealthy enough to fly back and forth every weekend though.

    So is Coco permanently moving to LA? 
    Is she fleeing Korea to escape the mess she’s made there?

    Ok don’t be ridiculous. What reason does anyone have to lie about mental illness? 
    You’re perpetuating the stereotype that mental illness isn’t real, or anyone who showers, eats meals, or goes out in public isn’t depressed. 
    Spoiler alert: You can be married, dress up cute, go on fun adventures in Japan... and BE DEPRESSED.
    Let’s not forget this girl has gone through a VERY traumatic childhood. Her own mother posted suggestive videos of her online at 13 and basically lived life through her and treated her like a doll. She also isolated her from the rest of society. Venus ran away at 18 and moved to a foreign country, perhaps feeling she had no better option. All of these things take a toll on a person. 
    Venus has plenty of reasons to be depressed, not even considering the fact that sometimes mental illness just happens because of our brains. Let’s all support her and hope she is able to feel better.

    Low key feel like they’re going to have a live in nanny who does everything even though Taylor doesn’t have a job lmao. 
    Tom seems like he’s going to believe in traditional parenting roles. He will never want to touch a diaper, he just wants a wife who will tidy up the house, watch the kids, and have dinner for him when he comes home with a briefcase. 
    Taylors gonna be the rich housewife who goes to hot yoga or whatever while the nanny watches the kids. Her one bonding activity with her daughter is going to be shopping. 
    Sadly just because your parents have a lot of money doesn’t necessarily going to mean you’ll have a happy and fulfilling childhood.

    I’m sorry but WTF IS GOING ON WITH HER NECK IN THIS PHOTO? 
    She looks like an ALIEN?! Why is her head like 2 feet away from her left (our left) shoulder? Why is her left hand only like 2 inches long? 
    Am I missing something? Wtf has she done to her photo? 
    Just look at it zoomed in!!!
    Kenna get a grip on your editing. Seriously.

    It's been 2 years since Yuri on Ice came out, what good is a hobby when the anime she got it from isn't popular anymore? 
    Let's watch as the sequel comes out in another year or two, and she's suddenly an ice skating princess again!! (For a month, then she'll drop it.) 
    Or maybe she'll lose interest in anime, and move to Korea to learn Korean instead? Korea's been quite trendy too after all...

  10. caterpillars added a post in a topic Menclub - Tom Lip's controversial online magazine   

    I don't really feel Taylor has any excuse for not learning Cantonese, Japanese, or other languages.
    She is an unemployed woman who's one (1) job is to look pretty/get pregnant. They are clearly filthy rich, and have been for quite a few years. 
    Her hobbies appear to be shopping and going out to eat. I don't really see any other hobbies taking up a lot of her day. 
    They could spend thousands on hiring her a private tutor every day, buy her the nicest online course, send her to the fanciest school, whatever they want. 
    But... I think she just doesn't care. Who does she need to interact with, aside from her husband and Youtube fans? It's not like she has to go to work or be a normal person. If she's going out in public, she can just pay Natalie to come along and translate. 
    I don't really think she cares about the culture, history, or languages of any of the places she goes to. All she does it hang out in her fancy apartments and go shopping. Why put effort into a new language? Learning takes so much brain power and dedication.

    Oh it's totally fine to have a kid at 30! I think it's a great age to have a kid, I think you will be more emotionally and financially stable at 30 than in your 20's. 
    That being said, I don't know why they're acting like she needs to get pregnant right now and will try every method until she's pregnant. Is it really the end of the world if she gets pregnant at 31 instead, or even 32? My point is that it's not like she only has a few months left of fertility and youth, she has quite a bit of time. As far as I know being in your early to mid 30's is still very fertile and it's more of a stereotype that you're drying up by then. 
    It just seems like they're rushing into all kinds of stuff and giving themselves anxiety without just letting nature take its course for a little bit.

    Taylor's barely in her 30's, I don't know why it's all GO GO GO suddenly?! 
    Like what's the rush? She's not getting old, she probably doesn't have any life plans like school or a career change coming up, their wealth and sparkly apartments aren't going anywhere anytime soon. 
    I hope Tom's not placing all this anxiety on her. They both need to chill a little.

    "I'm sorry you feel that way" is the worst apology ever. Not even an apology. 
    "I'm sorry you feel that way" means "I don't agree with your feelings and I don't regret what I did but it's too bad you don't like what I did."
    This girl doesn't even like her own fans lmao. 
    Has she ever just shown appreciation for her fans? Who she doesn't even deserve?
    The only thing I've ever seen her shout out is fan art of her, shout outs when she wants something free from someone popular, or shout outs when she's selling them for $20 each.

    There are many people who fall in love, get married, and have children in a straight relationship, only to realize late in life that they are queer. 
    It's possible she spent many years loving Manaki and was legitimately his girlfriend, but is now realizing it is women she loves. 
    If she really is a lesbian, it is too bad she spent years with a man, but she is still young and has a chance to be herself now! 
    I hope her and Manaki will be close friends if they are ending their romantic relationship.

    Honestly I don't even think Kenna is happy or excited about being in Japan and doing stuff. She has always struck me as a homebody. She just wants to watch Netflix, drink Starbucks, and visit friends once in a blue moon. She doesn't want to go out on trips into other parts of Japan or try out new uniquely Japanese things, like an onsen. 
    Which is fine! Some people just like chilling and don't want to do a lot of stuff. She may even be an introvert and just need a lot of time to herself. 
    However, that makes me question why she wants to be a Youtuber or Instagrammer in the first place. No one wants to see 100 photos of her Starbucks drink, selfies of her in the same outfits, or an artistically arranged pancake. When she said she was moving to Japan everyone expected to see vlogs of her going on interesting adventures in a new land. 
    My guess is she's just doing this as an "easy" small source of income, and perhaps to fill some kind of void in her life. I mean, she doesn't really have any really passions or interests. (Starbucks, pancakes, and beige filters aren't a hobby.) Social media can make us feel like we're someone important and we've accomplished something. Especially so if you have thousands of followers. 
    If you're a rich girl and want an easy life, what else are you gonna do but move abroad and eat out a bunch?

    Why do I oddly feel like Mei is more famous than Kenna, despite Mei only having 1/5 of the instagram followers?
    Like, I'd heard of Mei/seen her videos recommended to me long ago, and have seen them pop up sporadically on youtube. I had a familiarity with her despite never really watching anything of hers. 
    Also on Mei's instagram I have 6 friends following her and liking her photos. (I follow ~500 people on Insta around my age) 
    I've never heard of or seen any of Kenna's videos aside from discovering all of the drama about her. She has almost 1,000,000 followers but no one I know follows her, except one other friend who likes the drama. 
    Could it just be because my friends are a skewed group? Like, most of my friends are college aged (late teens - mid 20's) so maybe Kenna is popular with a younger crowd? Or perhaps she's not popular in the USA? Not really sure, but as far as my demographic (college aged USA people) Kenna seems unknown.

    In the Celebface article:
    "Her mother, Angela McDaniel, tells me she prefers not to speak about the eye condition because “there’s so much more to Sarah than that.”"
    Really? There's more to her than her eye? Like what? Because that's literally her one (1) claim to fame 🤔🤔🤔 
    It's the reason she even got photoshoots, interviews, or magazine spreads.
    Maybe if she didn't want people to discuss her eye she shouldn't have gotten a fake eye implanted, make up stories about being bullied for it, and talk extensively about it in every interview? 
    She's taking away the jobs and stories of real people who have had heterochromia (many of which who say they haven't even been bullied over their eye, most people think it's cool) or the jobs of people who have other unique appearances, like vitiligo.

    I’m sorry but why the hell would you edit your neck? Like what? I wouldn’t edit my pictures but if I did, it’d be to brighten up my skin or maybe fix the lighting or something.
    But her neck? Really? Is this some Japanese beauty standard I’m not aware of? I don’t even look at people’s necks

  20. caterpillars added a post in a topic Simply_Kenna/cozykitsune [Thread 5]   

    I feel like she's playing it cool because she isn't sure whether she can become a model or not and doesn't want to embarrass herself by creating those high expectations.
    I think she'll still model if she gets the opportunity but will be like "OOPS guess I am good at it haha!"

    I feel like her channel is just really... basic? Like everything about it screams “Youtuber trying to go viral.” Nothing about it is uniquely Taylor. 
    In fact I don’t even know who Taylor is.
    I’ve been following her for a few years, yet if someone asked me her hobbies or personality traits I’d say “...Luxury clothes and hotels? Her dog? Decorating her apartment(s)?”

    Also, not to be racist or say anything bad about Japan, but isn't most of Japan only really interested in two looks?
    #1: Dolly white girls with pale skin and delicate features. Big eyes, slender nose, heart-shaped face. (How Taylor R used to look.) 

    #2: Cute/traditional looking Japanese girls. Pale skin, big eyes, hair in a natural dark or brunette color. 

    I've never lived in Japan and I'm not Japanese myself, so someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
    But these seem to be the two most coveted looks in Japan. I haven't really seen much else in popular media. 
    Would Kenna's natural features (AKA no Snow filter) be accepted in Japan? They seem to be a little stronger and more middle-Eastern without altering.

    I think naming the store ZhZh was a bad move. 
    For one thing, most people aren't going to speak Korean. While there is plenty of Asians in Los Angeles, there are also plenty of non-Asians who will be walking around and looking for random stores to go into. 
    They're going to walk into the store and say, "Hey, how do you say the name of this store? Sh sh? Z H Z H?"
    And then the worker is going to say "Ohhh it's called Coco." 
    And then the shopper is going to be like, "Wait, what? Coco? Didn't it say ZHZH out there?"
    Then the worker will have to say, "WELL, you see..." and attempt to explain it. 
    If the person doesn't have some familiarity with Korean language (most people in Los Angeles), any kind of explanation will leave them scratching their heads and perhaps less interested in the store after the strange and confusing explanation.
    They're probably gonna be like, "Haha... okay..." and then leave the store

    Also, no offense to Kenna, but this photographer seems fairly popular and successful.
    As far as I can see from scrolling through their Insta, they take photos of very very pretty models.
    Like, actual models who model for a living, not some random youtuber who looks kiiiind of cute when she photoshops herself to hell and back. Kenna is nowhere near these girls' level. 
    I can't see Kenna fitting in this photographer's portfolio at all. But maybe they will photograph anyone if you pay them enough.
    (That being said, I imagine it is very expensive. I have friends who are amateur photographers to earn some money during university. They charge $60-100 an hour and they're just amateur college students. This xenia.lau seems very professional and artistic.) 
    If Kenna is really trying to beg this Xenia.Lau for a free photoshoot, I doubt they're even going to respond lmao. He/she probably has hundreds of much more attractive people lined up and willing to pay them.
    Furthermore, photography is a job. It's quite rude to ask artists for free work. One of my friends photographs me for free sometimes but I still give him $20 or so just because he is donating his time and skill to me.

    Oof. Those boobs are not a good look. 
    Real breasts have some gravity and softness to them. Breasts should not be perfect spheres, they’re tear drop shaped. 
    Anyone with natural breasts that size would have a little droopiness to them (which looks beautiful and natural.) 
    Hers just look like two rocks attached to her chest. 
    Unfortunately she probably has a ton of dumb fanboys who’ve never seen real breasts and will eat it up.
