I have a HUGE issue with the kpop/jpop industry in that firstly it is fatphobic as fuck. the girls in kpop/jpop groups are constantly forced to go on crazy diets like for example the “lettuce diet” where they’re only allowed to eat lettuce to stay skinny and if they’re even a kilogram “overweight” they’ll be fat shamed and mocked and told they’re not worthy, despite the fact that they’re actually still slim and nowhere close to being fat (which shouldn’t be seen as a problem but it is). idols are constantly being watched and every single thing they do are policed.

another problem is the male fans. yes I am aware that #NotAllMen are guilty of this but it’s so obvious that the “no dating” rule (they’re allowed to date but it must be kept a complete secret, nobody can know) applied to young k-idols and j-idols are there to cater to those creepy males which make up such a large amount of the male fandom and their fantasies. these idols need to keep up this “youthful and innocent” appearance which is undoubtedly there to please the male fandom who are so obsessed with the “purity” of the girls. so many of them (and honestly I’ve seen so many of you on the dash do this too) infantize these girls and at the same sexualise them and it’s creepy as hell, prime example is Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, who is known for her “childish” appearance and yall are absolutely obsessed and sexualise the hell out of her and it’s disgusting.

these are giant flaws in the industry and I just thought to bring it up because I feel like it’s not talked about enough and its a huge problem. the treatment of the girls is appalling and heavily misogynistic and it actually needs to stop

If you ever date an asexual person be sure to get the specifics of their asexuality because the level of comfort with physical contact is different for all of us.

as an asexual person, i’m a little confused as to why you think this only applies to us. this applies to all people. no matter who you date, their level of comfort with physical contact will vary, and whether they’re ace or not it’s your job to establish a comfort zone

guys this is EXTREMELY important to me
this could mean that i can never get hormone treatment. i’m not fooling around, right now they are evaluating this law, which will make it impossible for doctors to give hormones (actually meaning they can take away the doctor’s license, if they’re caught giving trans people hormones), and limit it to the specialized clinic in the capitol. this not only means that trans people have to travel over there, which is bad enough, but the treatment you get over there is DESPICABLE

first of all, they won’t treat non-binary people, and you have to go through an evaluation that’s at least a year long, probably with extra waiting time. that means trans people have to wait 1½ years for hormones, often, if they even get through all the ridiculous tests
the “evaluation” involves being forced to prove that you’ve ‘always been trans’ (you have to bring freaking pictures from your childhood, what the fuckk?? “oh no you wore a pink dress when you were 3, you can’t be trans”)and involves humiliating tests and interviews about stuff like your sexual history, intelligence and psychological health

i repeat, if this pulls through I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET HORMONES, and neither will my partner, unless he continues as he’s done out of fear, to pretend to be binary. this includes being forced to cut his hair, chose a male name and start using male pronouns

SO please sign, because i’m shit scared

applying an althusserian “symptomatic reading” to this comment as a “text,” or an ideological project, we reveal its problematic in the form of its underlying assumptions. this text focuses on the group “feminists,” implying they are against equality because they have a problem with another group, “MRAs,” but what is left unsaid in this text is the inverse - are MRAs therefore against equality too because they have a problem with feminists? the text positions feminists as those who should be the object of our scrutiny, and by doing so, draws our attention away from MRAs precisely by mentioning them in a way that positions them as peripheral. the ideology inherent in this comment does not and cannot account for the anti-equality behavior of MRAs; to do so would be to reveal a contradiction, which is what ideology, by default, must avoid in order to appear coherent, thorough, and universal. therefore this text answers the question “what about MRAs?” without ever posing this question. this unasked, absent question constitutes the text’s problematic, and its attempt to preemptively account for what it unconsciously knows to be a threat to the ideology it espouses.
