With the recent influx of sexy concepts within the K-pop industry, many K-pop fans have more or less involuntarily slipped into the concept of slut- and body-shaming. This post is not trying to point at any of the people who said negative things - but much rather a reminder that statements like those are absolutely not okay. It’s an appeal to you not to think like maybe your bias does. Everyone makes mistakes, we learn with time. But next time you see a girl group dancing in revealing clothes or a picture of a female idol who put on some weight, think twice before you post a comment. Misogyny is a very real thing in K-pop, so don’t be a part of it!
Honestly, it’s not KPOP, it’s the Korean household. Women don’t have any power (unfortunately) and it’s completely sad to see that this trend still bleeds into generations after.
So weirdest thing.
This guy I know, he’s a friend of my best friend and today him and I had a 4 hour long skype call just talking about life, our traveling experiences, and just jokes.
Somewhere along the way we talked about the first time we met, which was at a hookah lounge in downtown sf, and this is where it gets weird, he said and I quote, “You looked really cute and I was with my girlfriend at the time and I was really conflicted at whether to even make small talk with you.” And it threw me by surprise.
Guys. No guy has ever told me I looked cute in a genuine way (or any compliment for that matter). I only ever get offers for sex or twisted to do a photoshoot. So when he said that, my heart lit up. My face went into a deep red and I couldn’t control my smile. It was an amazing feel and I wish I got that more often.
Am I crazy for asking for that much? A time in which I’m appreciated by another man? I feel like I do all the work in terms of trying to find someone to date / grow a relationship and it always backfires in my face, so when he said that I couldn’t hold back my excitement. I don’t know, I needed to really let this out in a concise way because I have no one to talk to here who actually cares.
But yeah. That’s it.
WHY CAN’T ANYWHERE JUST HIRE ME. FUCK SCHOOL FOR GETTING IN THE WAY!
Literally just had break up sex that wasn’t my own.

"I am an Academy of Art University photography major and as a photographer I want to experience the art life that Seoul, South Korea has to offer! This trip would mean the world to me as I come from a family who makes a low income. This trip would be fun and completely rewarding but as a great chance for me to network since Seoul is where I want to take my photography career. I’ve been in love with Korean media and culture and this trip would be a once in a life time opportunity. Thank you. "
Oh my god I am in love with Iggy.
