Happy birthday mao mao ♡
"I think rather than being over-friendly at first, having a cold first impression and slowly making them realize that i’m not that cold is better."
IT’S NOT EXO.. IT’S BECAUSE OF THEIR IGNORANT AND IMMATURE FANS
AND THERE’S THIS ONE I JUST SAW A WHILE AGO:
“its not a fans fault they want their bias groups mv to come out fast -.-“
dissing someones beauty cause it’s “fake” or whatever is like really petty and let’s me know that your probably an insecure bitch
can you believe there are people who have grown up on the internet without ever having read this
if kpop is so full of ‘cultural appropriating’, ‘racist’, ‘sexist’, ‘homophobic’, ‘demoralized’ individuals, then why do you continue to support it listening to the music? a good minded person would have been walked away, yet the half of fans on tumblr just sit at their computers and complain and bash idols about it. and it’s not just with kpop, like in general. its quite annoying when you can’t enjoy something, because the mass if complaining about it. either get over it, or get out.Critiquing something you enjoy isn’t “complaining” any more than calling out someone you care about is. If I’m critical of a person, band, company, whatever for problematic behavior, that doesn’t mean I’m demonizing everything about them and it doesn’t mean that my only options are to “get over it” and allow that problem to persist by silencing my voice, or to “get out” of the fandom and remove my voice entirely.
There are a lot of things about k-pop that I love. There are a lot of things about all kinds of different music that I love. But that’s exactly why I can’t excuse instances of misogyny, racism, queerphobia, etc. that occur in the music I listen to and the artists who represent it and the industries that support it. Calling someone out is not about attacking them. It’s not about making anyone feel bad. It’s not about asserting that they or their fans are scum, and you are better than them. It’s about honestly believing that they can do better, and that it would be irresponsible to not bring that to everyone’s attention.
Being critical of something does not deny any genuinely good or positive or enjoyable qualities about it. It’s saying that there are also harmful and offensive and ugly things happening at the same time that need to be addressed. It’s saying that we as fans don’t need to be so blinded by our love for something that we forget our individual beliefs and ideologies and stand by during, turn a blind eye to, or make excuses for actions/words/attitudes that are hurting people. Nothing is perfect, and we can’t put k-pop up on some untouchable pedestal exempt from the opinions of the “rest” of society.
