Finally a week later, these ghostly wax babies are finished. I decided I’de like to try out the pokemon variety meme, so I chose one of my favourites, Litwick, after I looked up images of candles and their scents for character design reference. It was time-consuming but fun.
im korean and i dont insert random “aish”’s and “yah”’s into my otherwise english posts u know why? bc it doesnt make sense and it serves no purpose other than using korean for the sake of using korean. so tell me why u non koreans think u can do it?
when you non korean ppl do this ur using korean just for the sake of using korean, and hence accessoring my language. ur using korean slang that u, as a non korean person, would never really use irl, to try and closer yourself to korean culture and at the end of the day it makes you a koreaboo. ur using my language to accessorize ur posts to seem More Korean when ur not korean at all.
most of u have seemed to grasp the concept that using hangul as a non korean person is appropriation so tell me why i still see so much of korean slang thrown around? do you think that just bc now its in an english translation its suddenly an english word? does changing 오빠 to oppa now suddenly make it an english word? its just as embarassing and racist as using straightup hangul
if you’re going to consume so much korean media then you have an obligation to respect korean culture and korean people as more than just figments of ur dream idol. pretending you’re korean for listening to kpop is not respectful, its not cute, it fetishizes korean people and works against us being treated as complex human beings
i want to make a list of movies/books/etc where a major plot point is “mom helps daughter kill a man who hurt her, or at the very least helps her hide the body” but in general that is never what the actual plot is about, so it’s huge spoilers, which is ACTUALLY KINDA WEIRD now that i am thinking about it. with dad movies it’s the whole plot of the things, SOMEONE HURT HIS DAUGHTER AND NOW THEY’RE GONNA PAY
but i read a book once that was entirely about a girl going back to her hometown after twenty years and trying to reconcile with her mother after The Incident. then they finally reveal 80% of the way through the book that The Incident was that protag thought she’d killed her date rapist and had been scared to come back because she’d somehow made it twenty years without consequences, but actually she’d only seriously injured her date rapist. protag’s mom had found the guy while looking for her wayward daughter, realized what happened, and ran him over with her truck and buried the body under her garden. she never said anything because of Mom Code.
there was no indication at any point prior to this that this was a book about a murder. it was a heartwarming coming-of-age story about a woman entering her middle years learning to better understand her mother. that just happened to include covering up a murder. protag thought her mom was just an obsessive gardener.
