    Moe culture runs deep in Japan so there's nothing we can do about it. I just don't like how it romanticizes dumbness and makes it think it's cute. Asian Boss made two interviews about it and it's saddening how intelligent women act dumb just so they could snag a man.

    I went to 3 proms in total and they weren't all that. The first one was memorable since it was our first prom night but the other two were eh. It just depends on the people who you're gonna be with tbh. The only fun thing about prom is the rave-like dances, which only takes 2 hours of the whole event lol.

    Is it too idealistic to stay in a third-world country just to fulfill your advocacies/principles? I don't think working and living abroad is the way to go despite being so fed up with the current state of my country. I'm getting a degree in Allied Health and my relatives expect me to work elsewhere other than here. They say I get more opportunities abroad because of high salary but I honestly don't care? I'm too nationalistic to adapt to a different culture and I'll always put my countrymen before anything else. It's hard to think about salaries when you've been exposed to a poverty-stricken community all the while being priveleged. Plus, the healthcare system here sucks and I really wanna help fight against it. Bottomline is, fuck the convenience and practicality the abroad has when people back home are literally suffering. I've always been so confused on what to do with life and now that I've found my purpose, I'm gonna strive hard for it and no selfish, social-climber relative of mine would take that away from me.

    I know I don't have any rights to say this as I've only watched S01 but Black Mirror is shallow af. It's not as mindblowing as people make it out to be.  I like BM's concept but the execution sucks ass. It honestly feels like a commentary and the episodes are predictable. It's either you fuck the pig or not. And it wouldn't take almost an hour if you didn't. 
    And their fans are so rabid y'all I haven't met one BM fan who would accept any constructive criticism about the show. I once told my friends about how I thought the show's so pretentious and they immediately tagged me as "too dumb to understand the show" lmao. What's even funnier is that Charles Booker is actually just a local comedian who thinks Twilight Zone is the best sci-fi series and decided to make a knock-off of his own.

    I'm all about women empowerment too but I don't believe anyone's genuinely a feminist. I avoid advocacies like this (i.e feminism, mental health) like the plague 'cause people who preach about these are most likely a bunch of fakes.

    There's this belief when you point at something, you should bite the finger you used for pointing to fend off bad luck, I guess? Looks like that woman is superstitious and thinks she's saving your life by biting your finger lmao. It's definitely weird and you should get that checked out.

    Sorry can't hide content, I'm on mobile. 
    Lmao, people need to hop off on the baby fever. They're cute when they don't cry but most of the times they do and it's a nightmare. 
    People who are legitmately depressed (but are not diagnosed) drop hints constantly. It's not just about saying, "I wanna die" or some shit but they say well-planned thoughts of how they're gonna kill themselves and then pass it off as a joke. That's a big, red flag. I actually hate depression memes now (personally, they're the most tasteless self-depreciating jokes) and how it makes people so desensitized to the illness, to the point they don't even realize it's fatally serious. 
    Edit: It doesn't trigger me but I just don't find it funny anymore. 
    I don't personally know your friend but I'm also proud of him for getting through a rough time and hipe he's getting all the support he needs.

    I so agree with you on this. People who constantly seek for an SO are fucking sad. I used to make fun of them for being so desperate but damn they're everywhere, it's not even funny. I don't get how you have to be in a relationship to feel valid. I'm not trying to be edgy but why the need to have one? There are many ways/things you can get love from and it's extremely sad how everyone thinks being in a relationship is the only way to go. 
    Ever since I got diagnosed, I kept shut about suicide and all that. I won't go around and say they're faking their depression since coping mechanisms are different for everybody but most of these people are obviously not diagnosed. You'd know.

    I might find Flower impressive if only they didn't have one vocalist. The other members are great dancers but they don't stand out to me. They look like any other LDH girl trainnee. Also, you have Happiness for that singing + dancing combo and I think Flower was originally intended to be vocal-focused anyway.

    I bet I'm gonna get downvoted for this but I hate how majority thinks that thin-shaming doesn't exist. It does and it's real. For the longest time, I was so disgusted at my body. I don't mean to brag for being "thin" but I really thought I was horribly malnourished and that cost my diet to become so bad. I binge ate and by that eating greasy and sweet foods. It became an excuse to eat junk to put on more weight. And then at one point I'd feel so grossed out so I'd never eat at all for days. It's a truly viscious cycle. It's only when I went to my cardio that I discovered I only need to be at a certain weight range especially at a small height. That was years ago and I still do the disgusting diet. I hope people would realize words do cut deep. I've been humiliated endlessly just because my bones are "showing" (when it's not, they look like they do when you touch them at the back and it feels prominent). I even had one friend who told me I was anorexic just for being thin. Those who kept pointing at my body are the same people who constantly wished they were as thin as me. No, stop.
    I wish for body-shaming to stop. No one deserves to go through something that can negatively affect their physical body AND mental health. People are so vile. I just wish I were a plant or someth so I could never deal with humanity again.

    I'm iffy about Loona's debut on Japan sometime this year. They may have better chances there than in S. Korea but it's highly unlikely. I'd like them to prove me wrong but I feel it's better to tour around U.S.A or Brazil first than debut in a country where barely anyone even knows them.

    Gave it a read cause I had nothing else to do. This book just screams pretentiousness. I didn't know why it would take her 70 whole ass pages for an autiobiography but she makes the most mundane things seem interesting. She also loves to overuse descriptions, like girl just get to the damn point. I may not have read enough autobiographies but I have read enough fanfictions to know Dios looked exactly like one. I would be fuming if I paid $5 for this crap.

    This may be an unpopular opinion in this sub but when you think about it, Butterfly really isn't about Loona. It kinda bummed me out too for not having any focus shots of the girls but BBC really wanna emphasize representation. I don't think Butterfly is heavy on lore but is more of a dedication to fans or women in general.

    Loona's B-sides are definitely superior, much more than their title tracks. Butterfly does lack something but it only took me a few replays to actually enjoy the song. Loona is revolutionary in terms of their concept, I guess. Who would've known a k-pop group would include female empowerment and diversity without fetishizing them in their MV. It gave me major goosebumps.

    I honestly don't see anything wrong with this. I follow a lot of authors on IG who do this and it aint that big of an issue 🤷‍♀️ I can't see how narcissism is related to that at all. Y'all have been scolded time and time again for nitpicking everything Kenna does and it's ridiculous how you're all still at it. I get that this is a gossip forum but this is getting downrighr toxic
