Noah fence but if you think Angelina Jolie's head photoshopped onto a Brazilian woman's body on whom you've used a psd to whitewash to oblivion is somehow less problematic then honey you've got a big storm coming.

Noah fence but if you think that all la.tinas are brazilian then you really need to 1. fact check 2. reconsider everything because eriana is actually cuban lmao. repeat after me folks, not all poc are interchangeable !

ok so the first time i read this i was Legitimately worried bc i’d never thought about it as whitewashing because i’m literally only using her body (and, the last time i checked, certain body silhouettes / muscular structures are not exclusive to race? like … they really aren’t), and i still don’t think it is, especially after consulting a bunch of my friends (who are all woc), two of which are in fact, cuban. both of them said that they saw absolutely nothing wrong with it, and i’d really rather trust their word over an anonymous asker who can’t even get their ethnicities straight.

but i’d also like to explain exactly why/how i use her? eriana is STRICTLY a body reference, and in no way, shape, or form do i have the intention of somehow exploiting the fact that she is a woc. i don’t use her face / facial features, i just use her body, because it fits the most to what i’ve always imagined nat’s to be. (also shoutout to @vrooms for actually finding her for me after I Quit looking for body claims bc i couldn’t find any myself.)  irt to the ‘whitewashing’ though, both of the aforementioned cuban friends who i spoke to both said separately that they are very fair skinned, which is very common for white-latinxs, which eriana most likely is. the thing also is that she’s a fitness model / body builder, and they often, no matter what race they are, tan themselves to accentuate their body / muscles. again, i can’t stress enough that i’m Only using her as a body reference because no one else works. & even then, she’s not EXACTLY how i imagine nat’s body to be, but she’s the damn closest.

but if anyone else wants to talk to me about this privately then i’d be very open?? like at this point i’m convinced this Lovely anon is a yt s.jw and it’s rly off putting but i’d love to discuss this with anyone who shares their views, i really don’t want to offend anybody who actually knows what they’re talking about (and would be willing to direct you to everyone i talked to about this before replying)

Let’s talk about mental illness in Killing Stalking

As someone who has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, I’m pleasantly surprised by the depiction of the mental illness in Killing Stalking. (Although there is some debate about whether “borderline personality disorder” is meant to apply to Yoonbum or Sangwoo, I’m fully confident that Yoon is the one with the mental illness, something I’ll explore in this post.)

I’ve noticed that Yoon experiences many of the same symptoms I do, and (while I’ve never broken into someone’s house) I find a lot of his behaviors relatable. I believe his characterization to be very true to someone who struggles with borderline personality disorder, for the following reasons:

He acts impulsively. 

BPD is often characterized by having trouble controlling one’s emotions, leading to impulsive actions and sometimes inappropriate emotional responses. We’ll go with the obvious: Yoon breaks into Sangwoo’s house after stalking him. Whether or not he planned it, it’s an action taken without much thought as to the consequences, and he acts completely on his emotions for Sangwoo.

He has a history of unstable relationships.

People with BPD tend to have trouble with relationships, particularly maintaining them. This is not because of a lack of emotional attachment; rather, (in my case) it’s because of overly strong attachments to others, sometimes swinging between feelings of intense love and extreme hatred. People with BPD can form very close bonds with other people and have a persistent fear of rejection or abandonment. Yoon is an interesting case, as he feels a deep attachment to Sangwoo despite the obvious abuse, and he even fears not being “good enough” for Sangwoo. These types of thoughts are at the root of my mental illness, and I resonate strongly with Yoon’s need to be “special” to Sangwoo. We also know that Yoon’s relationship with his uncle is…strained, at best, yet he decides in one moment that even that is better than living with Sangwoo.

He self-harms.

It’s very typical of those struggling with BPD to self-harm, have suicidal tendencies, or engage in self-destructive behavior. Sangwoo points out Yoon’s self-harm scars and even taunts him for it, to which Yoon responds that he did it because he was “lonely.” This feeling is often the trigger for my self-harm episodes as well.

He has hallucinations/delusions.

In my experience, borderline personality disorder is sometimes confused with schizophrenia because of this symptom. (In fact, I was once misdiagnosed with schizophrenia and received the wrong kind of treatment for a time.) One difference between BPD and schizophrenia, for me, is that, while the images I see or the voices I hear are startling and sometimes terrifying, I can usually differentiate between “fantasy” and “reality.” People with BPD may, when under extreme stress, hear voices or have horrific hallucinations, like the body parts Yoon sees in Sangwoo’s washing machine. 

This is all based on my experiences alone, but from what I’ve seen, Yoon is definitely a relatable case, and I’m actually really happy for the representation in Yoon. I’ll be looking forward to future chapters to see if there are any instances in which Yoon dissociates or if we get more history on his previous relationships. Overall, 10/10 character representation.
