after resisting the urge to rant about it for so long, i'll try to keep it short and succinct.

omona, shut the fuck up already.

→ being fat is ok, yes I get that.
→ surely there are many different types of fat - when it borders on unhealthy obesity, wanting to lose that weight is surely ok?
→ stop judging on the girlfriend when you don't know her reasons for wanting him to lose weight.
→ dude I totally would break up with a guy if I thought he was eating his way into early cardiac arrest. sorry to say, asian dating is not about ~*true love*~ and all that jazz, there is a very ingrained sense of practicality. if it is true love and sacrifices must be made, I will respect that, but do respect the other side of it too.
→ she didn't get back with him after losing 10kg. she got back with him after 20kg. have they ever considered there are other reasons that she got back together with him? perhaps some determination, effort? it's not just numbers.
→ also, it's not as if shindong doesn't know how it feels to be fat and judged for being fat. seriously now, people.


...people.



rather unrelated to the above, but for the love of whatever higher power, do I hate getting hit on by men at work. or in general.

Some of the translation on omona (or the news article)is kind of wrong... His gf didn't break up with him because of his weight.. there were other issues (I'll tell you about this when I see you. There's so much more to the story..) Omona is sooooo weird sometimes.. I don't understand them..

p.s. I really need to hire a bodyguard. Sorry for not making it come true yet, but hopefully in the near future, I'll find someone to protect you :)

I'm so glad I have you to actually tell me that my hunches were right. There is so much cultural context to the break up and sad, sad mistranslations. lol it seems like we have so much rage at people in general this week huh

I WANT CHANGMIN ;_; *clings to you*

All I get from this seems to be: Oh those Koreans, riling up the peoples again. We really are quite a devious bunch. ;)

Also, I think your only course of action is to stop being pretty. Sorry. :(

people on [livejournal.com profile] omonatheydidnt just never let up with the bullshit whenever there is a shindong post. I'm so sick and tired of their comments - it's almost like it's cool to take a piss on him because of his 'fat girl' comments even though he apologized, blah blah blah I could write a fucking essay but would give myself high blood pressure trying not to cuss tehm out, lolol.

I am not pretty :\ I just have a goody two shoes face. Sometimes I also think it's because everyone has a stereotype that asian girls are nice to jerk around or some shit like that.

Oh dear, breathe! Think of happy Toma thoughts! People will always be stupid, but you will always be better than them!

You are probably very pretty. I say probably because I think the only pictures I've seen of you either did not have your whole face or you were decked out in gothic makeup--and I really hope I'm not mixing up my friends when I say this. > >;;;) But! Remember! Men will always be stupid . . . but, well, you know the rest. ;)

haha, oh, toma ♥

but I would have makeup on :| and my side profile is like someone stepped on my face when I was a baby. pshaw. to me its like guys are just so desperate.

six out of seven days a week I come to the conclusion that men are pigs? idk, pretty asian men over the ocean are always more desirable.

omona at it again? ugh. the way they rage over anything to do with shindong just makes me want to stamp on their faces. they're really no better than korean netizens, and yet they go all righteous about "batshit korean netizens with their crazy-ass comments" when their comments would sound just as crazy if they were reported in the news.

A lot of the comments over at omona have always struck me as eurocentric/Western, and the fact that they just completely ignore cultural differences which are so important.

Completely unrelated, I was at open mic night last night and I met a girl who reminded me so much of you, I have no idea why. I think it has something to do with the confidence ;) /random

another thing is that they always excuse their rage with 'cultural differences are not an excuse'. excuse you, that's why its important that a person received the negative criticism for that comment so his views are changed from then on, but is it really fair to judge everything he does from there with malicious intent? it frustrates me people people are like 'oh i used to think he was awesome then this happened'. my issue with them is that they were probably blind to not see that shindong wasn't perfect to begin with - I'm pretty sure I had the impression from the very beginning shindong was there for the money - if people went 'who are you?' at him because of his weight when he first joined sme, you think he'd have stuck in it for the love of super junior? please. sorry, I tend to rant when it comes to this.

the best part is they are judging shindong's girlfriend based on something shindong said, which was also mistranslated and misinterpreted. to me it's glaringly obvious based off the grammar and the way things are phrased that she didn't just break up with him because of weight, she broke up with him because his her parents objected and she set an 'unreasonable request' for him to lose weight in order to find a middle ground (and here, there is cultural context that I have yet to figure out how to put to words).

snide comments about how they deserve each other because he's a douche and she's a bitch does not cut it ok!!!

lol me, confidence? i've always thought i was rather deficient in that aspect, but it seems like these days i've got more of a 'bitch please' attitude than anything else :\ i feel like a cynic!
