Phone: What is this strange thing you speak of? Quality? Never heard of it.
So, despite this photo looking absolutely awful and ruining how much detail
is in the drawing, I’m posting it here. I’m a huge fan of Thomas Sanders (@thatsthat24 ).
Ever since he was on vine and now that he’s on Youtube, I’ve wanted to work on
something like this to give to him (and Joan + Talyn)(@welcome-to-the-joangle + @tallykat3) as thanks for
everything they’re given us all. I love the videos with the different aspects
of Thomas’s personality too so they’re in there. Maybe someday I’ll upload a better
picture of this cause the colored pencil is not faring well. But thank you Thomas
Sanders + friends for making such wonderful videos that have managed to cheer
up my day many times over.
(Also idea: What if the weirdly aloof
Thomas that was shown in Accepting Anxiety Part One actually became a humanized
aspect? Like the closest thing I could describe that side would be like… Apathy
or something? I dunno. Food for thought.)
ＶＩＸＸ ＲＥＡＣＴＩＯＮ: to their girlfriend saying they’re not sexy
Hakyeon will be upset that you couldn’t see the goddess he did. He’d wrap you in his arms and kiss your neck. “You’re the sexist person on this planet,” he whispered into your ear as he rubbed your back.
Taekwoon would stay silent as you spoke to yourself through the mirror while trying to find something to wear. “I should just stay home in my pyjamas,” you mumbled, sitting next to the bed. “Don’t act like you wanted to go,” he laughed, wrapping an arm around you. “If you stay home, I can show you how sexy you are.”
If you think he’ll let his girlfriend say a single thing bad about herself, ding dong, you are wrong. The moment ‘I don’t think I’ve got a sexy side’ left your lips, he’d tackle you onto the sofa and wrap his limbs around you. “How dare you say such things about the woman I love?”
You’d be ranting to Wonsik over cam about how your friend had bought you ‘sexy silk pyjamas’, and how they’d look horrible on you. His face would scrunch up in disgust at your words, causing you to frown. “What’s up?” you asked as you watched him. “I just don’t like you telling lies. Your nose will grow if you keep telling them.”
Hongbin would see your comment on a photo your friend posted, talking about how you ruined the ‘sexy’ photo. He’d being to notice little things about your appearance, complimenting you on each one.
“Your hair like that really draws attention to your beautiful eyes.”
Like Hongbin, Sanghuk wouldn’t tell you right away that he heard you speak poor about yourself, he would just compliment you more. When you walked out of the shower, he’d gasp and pull you close.
“Woah! You look amazing!” he grinned. “I’m in a towel?” you raised a brow. “And you look amazing in it.”
How do you feel about Hugh Hefner being buried next to Marilyn? After I read about how he almost ruined her career using those nude photos, it makes me feel so horrible :/
It honestly doesn’t really bother me. I don’t think Hugh Hefner was a bad guy (but I don’t know much about him) and I really don’t think it was ever his intention to ruin her career - even though that could have easily happened. Marilyn did not actually ever own the rights to those nude photos, either.
Hi there, so just a couple moments ago I stumbled upon an edited yoongi photoset and however much I am opposed to whitewashed Yoongi, the credits of the fansite state that it isn't editable. Now I understand that of course, this is a restoration blog and I understand that the main cause is to "restore" photos that have been whitewashed but at the same time we need to respect the original fansites regardless of whitewashing. (1/2)
I totally understand that you cannot control what has been submitted to you, and obviously you’d assume that if a photo has been edited that has respected the original fansite’s wishes but if you don’t mind, could you take it down? It was the flame in my heart: suga photoset from changwon kpop festival. I’m so sorry to send this message to you but it really does irk me when people edit non-editables, I hope you understand. (2/2)
It was nice of you to message us, but unfortunately we must decline on your request to take down “uneditable pictures”.
But considering you were much nicer than most people that have talked to us, we will give you an explanation as to why:
Plenty of, but not all, fansites make profit off of their photos. Having a fansite means that you are offering a type of brand with the photos as a product. We as consumers are well within out rights to dispute, criticize, and call out on their behavior.
Some fansites that exist that are editable, also request us not to restore them. Because they don’t want people to criticize their behavior.
Think about the effect one whitewashed picture has on an idol: They have to deal with pressures of a damaging beauty standard by applying makeup/wearing skin whitening products/whitewashing their own selfies already from internalized colorism. And yet despite this, fansites are still DISRESPECTING and TREATING the idol/person they are taking pictures of as if they are a lesser being. Fansites/fans have already made fun of idols for their skin, whitewashed official photos, taken their selfies and whitewashed them more, etc. Idols have already publicly stated that they don’t like being treated this way. Including taehyung multiple times.
Think of how one whitewashed photo affects fans: Fans are going to be brainwashed into thinking that the whitewashed photo is an accurate representation to the real thing, and when it comes to international fans, they start associating these traits to all east/southeast asian people. This has already led to racial fetishization and stereotyping what a east/southeast asian should look like.
Think of how one whitewashed photo effects an east/southeast asian people: It fuels colorism and xenophobia within the east/southeast asian community. This would give more power to light skinned asians as they are seen as the “right version” of what an asian should look like. It also justifies discriminating behavior towards asians with average/dark skin tones through bullying, violence, sexual harassment, and other dehumanizing acts.
Think of how one whitewashed photo affects dark skinned east/southeast asians: It builds up their insecurity with their skin, seeing how a person they look up to look a certain way, or how people call the person they look up to ugly because of their skin color, damages their self esteem from internalized colorism. If you add discrimination based on skin color to it, especially to young kids, it could ruin them for a long time.
Think of how one whitewashed photo leads to racism: Because colorism is based on the discrimination of dark skin color within a mono racial community, it already has lead into racism. This leads further prejudism and discrimination amongst race groups.
If you take these into account, from one whitewashed photo, it damages up to millions of people around the world. And the history of this has lasted for generations and generations.
Restores only hurt one person: The personal feelings of the whitewasher. Restore blogs have no respect to fansites whatsoever and we simply do not have to because of how damaging and prejudist their behavior is.
It’s not like the fansites respect company fan etiquette and idols’ personal space anyway. They aren’t supposed to take pictures at concerts and venues, they aren’t supposed to take pictures of them at private settings, they aren’t supposed to follow them around constantly, they aren’t supposed to make the idols feel horrible about themselves and yet they do.
And I will end off at this note.
Why do you want us to respect the fansite, more than we should respect the person in the picture?
Why do we have to respect people who hurt who they “supposedly” love?
