sometimes I really want to give voice to strong opinions I have about the culture of this website or the state of my generation in general because hardly anyone is addressing those issues, but I’m non-confrontational and don’t want to bring that kind of stuff onto my blog in general so I end up staying shut up to scream into a pillow or something and it honestly kills me that I have been made to feel, by my own peers, that I can’t have an opinion without being ripped to shreds for simply existing and having such opinions lol
Kinda tired of seeing how some people view Killing Stalking as porn or fetishization of gay men. I personally don’t believe the manga fetishizes gay people at all, in itself. The fans, maybe, but if they think it’s hot, just let them think it’s hot. They’re not hurting anyone. Just don’t confuse the actual story with the fandom.
I personally don’t believe KS is specifically trying to make a point to “represent gay people”, because it doesn’t really. Koogi is just giving us an interesting psychological horror manga so we can enjoy the actual story, which is indeed terrifying because it’s realistic. Keep in mind that anything that has happened in KS, can most definitely happen in real life, the characters just so happen to be gay.
Why are gay people inherently more sexualized than straight people? Calling it fetishization is making it seem like gay people having sex is wrong or shocking. ((not to mention most of the people I see saying this are allegedly queer/gay.)) The story would be just as fucked up and interesting if Bum was a woman, bc the situation is scary. It makes no difference unless you make it different.
Pls quit trying to make it seem like Koogi is a bad person, or that she’s writing her story to appeal only to “fujoshi”. You’re disregarding her hard work.
It’s imagination. Have none of you seen a horror film/comic/novel before? It’s supposed to be disturbing.
A good story is a good story. If you don’t like it, just don’t read it. 🤔
Seriously, guys. We need to stop being toxic, comparing people to other people, anonymously putting people down, and just being all together mean; it’s truly ridiculous. We are in a time where now, more than ever, where we need to LOVE and ENCOURAGE and SUPPORT one another. Spread love and kindness, don’t sow hate and distrust. 🌱💕
