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.
I just hope Rodi doesn't take the bait and accepts this "apology". Abusive people don't change so easily. It's the same with emotionally abusive partners. When you finally tell them that it's over, they go on their knees and act like they will be the best boyfriend/girlfriend ever but as soon as you get back with them, they revert to their old behavior patterns. The only thing that could fix their friendship in my opinion is spending a few months apart so Miranda can reflect on her actions and actually work towards becoming a better person instead of trying to manipulate Rodi into forgiving her.
Honestly I don't think it matters where her money comes from... Even if it isn't money she made herself, it's not like she's forcing anyone to give it to her or doing anything illegal (that we know of) to obtain it...
I think you missed my point. What I'm trying to say is that I don't think it's ok to make fun of / stigmatize dropouts and that not having completed highschool and a low IQ aren't necessarily connected.
There are a lot of people who quit high school because of bullying, family issues, mental illness, etc. I'm not saying that Miranda had any of those issues but I think it's a bit arrogant to judge people based on their level of education. It's true, you won't have the same opportunities but does it automatically make you a failure as a person if you drop out of school? You're right, it requires quite a bit of effort to get to David Karp's level with no degree. Of course Miranda isn't the best defendant but it also takes effort to move to a foreign country - ESPECIALLY if you don't have what it takes to work there officially. Don't get me wrong, her approach (cheating herself through the system) is completely wrong and leeching off her (ex?) husband is too. But that has nothing to do with her being a highschool dropout but her personality alone in my opinion.
I am sorry for bringing this up but I don't think it's fair to constantly bring up the fact that Miranda didn't graduate from high school. A lot of successful people (an example being David Karp, Tumblr founder) didn't, actually. Just because formal education wasn't for you doesn't mean you're a failure as a person. We all want to diss her and it's all cool as long as it stays fair but there are faaar worse parts about her (her personality being one lol) that justify shittalking her tbh. I'd rather see her get called out for the shit she did than her educational background. I don't want to play SJW here or anything, just wanted to remind everyone (including myself) to stay fair
I know I'm pretty late but as someone who REALLY didn't have a father figure while growing up I found this video to be kind of offensive... Her laugh at the end made me feel like she is running around screaming "HAHA LOOK MY BIRTH CERTIFICATE SAYS I DON'T HAVE A FATHER" (Is birth certificate what she wanted to say? it was so hard to understand because she swallowed half of it ) In reality, it's not that big of a deal, just that her dad's signature was missing on her original certificate. What a stupid way to clickbait people. She even said that this could be considered sad talk at the beginning of the video. Also her pronunciation is really bad as others have pointed out. You can't just "swallow" entire syllables in Japanese.
Yay I'm glad Venus and Tay met up. They seem to get along well. If you check the comment section there are some really disgusting comments telling Taylor to stay away from Venus. Like, what? Since when is it ok to tell people who they're allowed to be friends with. Really hope Taylor isn't going to let Venus's past drama affect their friendship.
off-topic but Since when does being on the autistic spectrum equal being stupid? I want to bitchslap vexxed too but please stop with remarks like that.
Step 1: find an ikemen hotto nihonjin who likes foreigners Step 2: tell him you love being a housewaifu Step 3: tell him that you'll have to leave nihon unless the two of you get married and he's the only one who can save you desu >u<!! Step 4: get married. happy endingu
Wow Kat please don't beat yourself up about this D: I know it's hard to move on after all this and you're probably still going to get hate from it in a few months. I think you have every right to be upset about it but by posting this video you're bringing the issue back after it finally cooled down again. The best thing Miranda, Sharla, Rachel, you and everyone else involved can do is just let it die. As you're saying the issue doesn't just affect Miranda but the whole community, so please delete it for the sake of everyone Be smarter than Miranda and let the issue die, it's 2 years old now.
I think what she means by "strong milk" is non-homogenized milk? I'm not sure though. Besides, if she didn't run around screaming "I'm fluent in Japanese", maybe people wouldn't even call her out on her bad Japanese as much :'D
