    Definitely agree with this. I’m not a big fan of Katie either, but this feelings of dislike seems so unhealthy to the point that it’s overbearing and obsessive. I’m all for discussion and criticizing someone’s problematic behavior, but when it’s to the point that you constantly happen to “stumble upon” the posts in her private account as well as her friends, it just seems nit picky and overwhelming. Let the girl breathe. And just to repeat once again, I don’t approve of Katie’s behavior and I dislike her as a person but I stg some of y’all are so obsessive with your unhealthy dislike of her to the point that you’re scrutinizing every single detail even when it’s irrelevant.

    Personally I’ll have to disagree with you. As someone who is asian that isn’t from China, Korea, or Japan, its frustrating particularly as a southeast asian due to constantly being underrepresented and being deemed as “not a true asian” because I don’t look East Asian. It’s frustrasting to have many non Asians (and even some East Asians) tell me that I don’t count as asian simply because my features don’t cater to the stereotypical East Asian. The problem isn’t a matter of “existence” but moreso how non Asians use their lack of knowledge on Asia as a whole to stereotype others, which often result in ignorant actions.

    I used to love her because i thought she was “woke” and shit but really she’s just one of your typical privileged asian baddies that uses activism to their own benefit in order to gain clout when really their activism consists of posting scandalous photos despite being a minor and screaming “fREE THE NIPPLE”

    I’m homeschooled and I can guarantee you that how much a student learns really depends on the student. I do agree that homeschooling needs to be regulated more; however, it really depends if the student is fit for a regular school or homeschool. It’s clear that Jessica isn’t fit for homeschool since she clearly lacks responsibility and basic knowledge. I suggest homeschooling for those with self-discipline and those who are capable of teaching themselves without constant assistance. dw y’all not all homeschool students are like her 💀

  5. ricebolls added a post in a topic INSTAGRAM BADDIES general thread   

    My thoughts exactly. I’m all for “you do you” and if someone genuinely likes baddie makeup, then go ahead, but I feel like majority of teens and young adults who do such makeup only do it because of peer pressure and submitting to trends and not because they genuinely liked the style of makeup. I used to cake on baddie makeup from freshman and sophomore year of high school. I didn’t do it because I liked the makeup, but because I felt pressured to do so especially since i thought that in order to be beautiful, I had to look like the typical baddie. Even though my makeup was fine and considered “ideal”, I wasn’t happy with the baddie style of makeup because it didn’t represent me + iT CAUSED OUTBREAKS BC OF SO MUCH DAMN MAKEUP CAKED ON. At the same time, I wanted to “look older” and be treated like an “adult” because I have a baby face. The makeup definitely did make me look older, but not in an appealing way, if I had to be honest. I’m a senior now and my style of makeup is much more natural and youthful and I use a very small amount. In other words, I only use what is necessary to enhance my features rather than conceal my features and transform myself to a completely different person. Plus mY skIN looks sO mucH betTER NOW.
    I also don’t think people realize that a baddie style of makeup won’t suit everyone’s features. When I was a part of the baddie trend, my makeup was great but my face wasn’t great. In other words, no matter how good my makeup was, it wouldn’t look good on me because it didn’t suit my facial structure. A lot of self MUA artists don’t seem to realize this either. They only know how to do IG baddie makeup and they imprint the same makeup on every customer they have. Sure the makeup is great, but sometimes it doesn’t suit certain customers because it doesn’t conform to their facial structure. Personally, I think that a true MUA is someone who is able to apply makeup in such a way that it enhances one’s features and conforms the makeup style to fit a person’s characteristics rather than implanting the same generic face on every single person.

    I don’t really have anything against her, but I used to be a part of the ABG community on instagram before I suddenly stopped giving a shit about IG fame and went back to being a small, personal account. I blocked a bunch of ABG accounts because I was tired of seeing that community on my explore page because personally, it was so toxic to me and I want no involvement in it. It’s not that I had anything personal against them, I just didn’t want to see that kind of content on my explore. That’s literally it. But as soon as she and her ABG crew found out I blocked them, they were all pressed about it ?? What kind of self-entitlement ?? Why does it matter that a small account who doesn’t want to see ABG content  blocks you ??? How the hell are they going to get so pressed over something so small and I even have a screenshot of them discussing the issue and apparently how I’m suddenly a bitch just because I’m interested in other content instead of the typical basic selfie with IG makeup pounded on and shitty edits with emojis. I don’t know, I just think it’s really dumb for someone with a huge following to get pressed over one person who isn’t interested in their ABG content because newsflash: noT everyOne is goIng to likE yoU or baDDiE content in genEral
    its just so self-entitled and she along with the ABG community expects that everyone SHOULD like them.

    This is awful, but to be honest, I have a hard time sympathizing with her. This is the consequence for her fetishization, and it only seems to bite her in the back. That man is probably aware of her fetishization, but he doesn’t give a shit because he could just use it to his advantage by manipulating her. Many people don’t seem to think that fetishization would have dire effects, but fetishization can go as far as prostitution and trafficking. This is a bit off topic, but this is such a huge issue in the Philippines with Filipino women being fetishized by both western men and men from South Korea that the prostitution and trafficking rates as well as the concept of mail order brides of Filipino women by western/South Korean men is at such a prime high, but unfortunately it doesn’t garner many coverage. I hope that Katie doesn’t have to suffer through a similar experience, but sometimes I feel as if a dire consequence is what a hard-headed individual needs in order to snap out of it.

  8. ricebolls added a post in a topic joy/sehunismyreligion   

    Although your opinions are valid, personally I feel as if some of your points come across as nit picky. Personally, I don’t necessarily see what’s wrong with Joy visiting Chanyeol’s mother’s restaurant or Kai’s sister’s cafe or even visiting the same statue that Chanyeol took a photo at. There are many fans who do the same things as Joy visiting these places, but I don't see people complaining about them. Many fans do these things like go visit their idol's places they've been to as a remembrance. As well visiting chanyeol's mothers restaurant & kai's sister's cafe, many do it to pay respects to their idols and their families as well as perhaps thank them and give fanart/fan letters etc. I just think that since Joy is embedded with this kboo reputation, anything she does that is related to kpop is perceived as a “kboo tendency” when really it’s something normal that fans in general would want to do.

    I’m pretty sure she was referring to people wearing a cultural garment in an inappropriate context. I don’t think Joy has a problem with cultures being shared and wearing clothing from other cultures as long as it’s done in the appropriate manner, so that’s kind of a reach.

    hello!! I’m the OP of this post. I unfortunately do not have screenshots but this is from a personal DM that I had with her a long time ago but basically what happened was that I used to be friends with her and she made a video of herself pinching her nose while humming. I decided to record a similar video and send it to her and her response was “HAHAH YOU SOUND LIKE YOURE BEING RAPED.” I DONT understand why she couldn’t have said something simple like “you sound like a whale” ///:

    Avanking
    So there's this instagrammer @avanking who is known for his twitter text posts. Most of the time, his twitter text posts usually involve his glow up. Apparently he really likes posting about his glow up a lot and he kind of gives off a narcisstic vibe.

    You do not know the whole background of the story. If I wanted to, I can post more screenshots that support my argument of cultural appropriation that she had committed and her ill intentions, but due to the sake of anonymity of several other users that wish to not be involved, I do not have consent to post their screenshots of certain conservations. 
    Also, in my first post in regards to CA, the screenshot says that she was given the cheongsam as a gift from her boyfriend's mom. I have a screenshot that proves that she was lying. In fact, she admitted to someone that she had actually requested her mother to buy the cheongsam online. She had only lied about her boyfriend's mom in order to find an excuse to wear the cheongsam. I would post the screenshot, but like I said- I want to respect the anonymity of other people involved. I have several other screenshots that show her lies and the loophole with each story that she tells each person. She changes the story up with each person to get what she wants and find a way to wear the cheongsam. I even have a screenshot ADMITTING that she thinks a cheongsam lacks significant meaning and that it's just like any other dress, proving that she cares very little about respecting the culture especially when she claims that it's "stupid" as quoted from the screenshot.
    Reminder: She asked around several people to find a excuse to wear the cheongsam and mainly because she was only scared of getting bash rather than wanting to actually respect the culture. Many Chinese people told her that it wasn't okay, but she still did it anyway. That already proves that she was being disrespectful to the people of the culture by not following their wishes. 
    No one is saying that she can't wear the cheongsam. People just want her to be respectful of the culture and wear it at an appropriate event such as Chinese wedding, a festival, or maybe New Year, but to homecoming is completely disrespectful especially since her goal is just to "look different." 
    Edit: Defend her all you want. By doing so, you're making her think that what she's doing is OKAY. She won't learn from this. I understand she's still learning and growing, but she needs to accept that when she's doing something wrong, she OWNS up to it- not make shitty excuses and continue on with her web of lies. Hell, she can't even keep up the same lies. You can continue to white knight her, but just know that I'm the one with the screenshots. I have ALL the evidence.

    Side note: I apologize if I'm getting a bit too political and stepping over boundaries. I'm moreso irritated when an individual is hypocritical. I can't stand people who preach about social justice and attempt to prolong a "woke" image when they are in fact the complete opposite. Apparently being "woke" is some method of gaining followers nowadays. Instead of using her platform to spread her so called social justice beliefs, she only uses it as a way to spread ignorance and make a fool of herself.

  14. ricebolls added a post in a topic Julolaes   

    SEVERAL people had explained to her why it was inappropriate to wear a cheongsam to homecoming especially when she is not Chinese. She complains about how there's a thread on her yet even though many people had explained to her kindly why it was wrong, she had still wore the cheongsam. Thread or not, she would have wore it regardless. Proves to show that she only uses "social justice" and "praising the asian" posts for clout when truthfully, she's ignorant upon these issues. She obviously cares more about getting bashed rather than respecting a culture despite the amount of Chinese people who disapprove of her wearing a cheongsam for homecoming. I definitely agree with you. If she really wanted to show representation, she could've worn a dress from her Filipino culture since apparently she's oh so proud of it as she claims and preaches about embracing her Filipino side.

    Julolaes
    @julolaes is a Filipino instagrammer who has recently been going viral especially on the explore page mainly because of her twitter text posts. Her text posts are cringey and she seems to constantly preach about fake positivity and is fake woke just so she can earn clout. Her makeup isn't the best either and she often makes rape jokes. 
    She seems uneducated with filipino beauty standards as well. She said that she was recreating the way filipina girls used to do their makeup and how it is a part of her culture although it seems she's replicating the universal red lip makeup look back in the 1900s, which was widely influenced by western makeup.

    Honestly, I don't mind posts that spread awareness with the use of makeup looks; however, I feel like she'd have a better effect of spreading awareness if she had included educational and informative information in her caption. Perhaps she could've included a brief description of breast cancer as well as some organizations that people can donate to and other ways that people can help. Seeing as how she didn't spread awareness in an informative manner, it really does look like she's just using this as a way for her own personal gain of followers.
    EDIT: Well, her caption wasn't exactly informative, but it's good to know that she's actually doing something by donating! She even put a link in her bio.
    EDIT AGAIN: Originally, her previous caption didn't mention anything about donating, but it looks like she edited it.

    In response to this post:

    I've created a compilation of links and sources to argue against her stance claiming that the makeup look she recreated was a representation of old Filipino beauty standards. In a way, she is correct considering the fact that westernization and colonization influenced Filipino beauty standards. Judging from the picture, she's attempting to imitate the universal makeup look during the 1900s. At the same time, she is wrong. I'm not sure how to put this into words since I'm not the best at articulating my thoughts, but I wouldn't necessarily label this purely as Filipino beauty standards. I had a problem with her caption where she talks about to embrace her Filipino culture BUT it seems as if she's spreading the wrong message: Embrace the western influence and colonization on Filipino culture. This makes Filipinos think that colonization is OKAY and to ignore the negative consequences of colonization and how it has erased our roots and our traditions. This only reinforces the colonial mentality that many Filipinos suffer from today. 
    I was scrolling through her page and found a comment attempting to educate her in a polite manner, and I decided I would add on to that with the sources that I have collected.

    Julolaes seemed to only respond with hostility, claiming that she is being "bullied" despite how polite and respectful the person was in regards to educating her. It seems as if she's thick-headed and refuses to admit her ignorance and correct her caption.

    The first two links explain how colonialism and westernization influenced Filipino beauty standards. It mainly refers to the aspect of skin whitening, but I still feel as if these two sources accurately explain how colonialism plays a role in Filipino beauty standards.

    The next two sources refer to Filipino beauty standards BEFORE colonialism and without the influence of westernization, which I feel is what Filipinos NEED to embrace.

    Lastly, this source just explains the history of makeup especially in the 1940s in regards to the universal red lip.

    Woo! I apologize for how long this post is. I didn't want to give a long history lesson, but I felt the need to fight her ignorance with FACTS. A Filipino instagrammer with such a large platform for other Filipinos need to realize the message that they spread. I get that her intentions were good, but they were ignorant and if she wishes for Filipinos to truly embrace their culture, then she needs to make sure that she provides accurate information. This isn't the kind of representation that Filipinos need. They do not need a problematic/ignorant individual to represent them. 
    I hope that no one  perceives this as "hate" or "bullying." I'm merely educating with facts and spreading knowledge. If you are to post false information on the internet with a false message, it's your responsibility to educate yourself in order to provide a better representation for your Filipino followers.
    NOTE: EDUCATING VS BULLYING ARE TWO VERY DIFFERENT CONCEPTS.

    I definitely agree with what you said. The way the OP worded it probably led to a misunderstanding, but you explained it well! I really don't mind if Asians try to speak upon asian racism and the struggles that they face. There are instagrammers I know that are actually educated on these issues. What I don't appreciate is when these famous instagrammers use that to their advantage and pretend to act "woke" when really it's just a way for them to earn followers from bandwagonning 14 year olds. Most cases, these instagrammers aren't actually "woke."

    This is from what a few people had told me, but they wish to remain anonymous: Apparently she's been thinking about wearing a cheongsam to homecoming. She mentioned she's part Chinese as an excuse to wear the cheongsam, but then she mentioned that she's full Filipino? She also made some other excuses which included:
    -She's not Chinese but she's Asian
    -Her boyfriend is black/Chinese/mexican
    -Her boyfriend's mom has Chinese blood and gave her the cheongsam as a gift
    -China is connected to the Philippines
    -She wants to add more representation (but why does she feel the need to wear a cheongsam if it's for the purpose of representation? Why not wear her own traditional clothing from her Filipino culture that she apparently embraces and loves oh so much?)
    At this point, it looks like she's just trying to look for validation so she can wear the cheongsam to homecoming to please her own aesthetic and fashion.
    I have several screenshots, but for anonymity reasons, I'll only be posting one of them.
    Judging from the screenshot, it's clear that julolaes cares more about how she's afraid of receiving hate rather than actually making sure she's respecting a culture.

    I can see what you mean, but I have to disagree. I don't necessarily think that being asian makes someone instafamous. Race isn't a factor here. There are instagrammers like those that you described that aren't asian at all yet they're still instafamous.

    Some more tea! She's stated before that she's full Filipino and now she's stated that she's Filipino/Samoan/White. She's also stated that she has Chinese blood before. What is the truth?
    A bit off topic, but she gives me the vibe that she only mentions her ethnicity for the sake of clout just like those instagrammers who use "wokeness" for followers. Fake woke and fake deep.

    Can someone find the screenshots of Lily Maymac and her mom talking crap about Filipinos? I've been meaning to find it. Someone posted a bunch of screenshots on IG but they got deleted and I didn't get the chance to screenshot it. I think it's strange how Lily hates Filipinos but once she discovered she had many Filipino fans, she suddenly embraced her Filipino heritage out of nowhere claiming that she was proud of being Filipino. In the past, she pretended to be white or a mix etc and constantly talked crap about Filipinos and how she hated being Filipino. I want her Filipino fans to see her for what she truly is because she certainly does not support her fellow Filipinos.
