To every person that has ever threatened Jimin or any other BTS member:
No one deserves this kind of hate and especially not someone as kind as Jimin. That boy is absolutely beautiful inside and out and he doesn’t need any of your pathetic pointless hatred in his life simply because he is an idol you don’t like you sickfucks so i hope you listen when i tell you to back the fuck off
I don’t care if it’s real (which btw if it is then darling some really bad shit is waiting for you and i hope you rot in hell cause how fucking dare you even think about killing Jimin or anyone for that matter) and i don’t care if it’s some kind of fucked up joke made to get attention, this kind of behavior can not be tolerated from anyone and we should not let this slide, the person posting those tweets should face the consequences
You are fucking pathetic and i can’t wait for the day it backlashes on you, because i’m telling you, it will.
Pop culture is so weird and has spiraled so out of control with its influence on our expectations about life, especially to younger generations that spent any formative years watching any kind of TV or movie.
I didn’t really think about it until Cracked did their podcast about weird romcom movie tropes, but as children, we’re knowledge and experience sponges, desperately learning what we need to learn to be a socially acceptable human being.
The problem is that there is no representation for normal or healthy life situations, that’s boring. Movies depict problems, they recycle tropes and follow similar stories. Your brain is like “This is how things must be, most of the experiences that I’ve seen overwhelmingly agree on this ridiculous trope.”
For example, romance movies. They’re written by men, as a form of fantasy or escapism from their everyday lives (leaving their tired marriages for whirlwind romances, or just whirlwind romances), and they write in things that they do, but no girl really wants, like harassing women or acting possessively towards them before they’re even dating.
Which leads to younger girls seeing these kinds of films everywhere, and thinking that this is how it’s supposed to be, it’s desirable.
And it applies to every other genre. Girls see science fiction/action/superhero movies and get the message that boys are scientists, explorers, heroes, main characters, and girls are sidekicks, eye candy, or the prize for the lead man at the end of the movie.
Anyway, Tldr; movies and TV are escapism and that leads to weird and harmful tropes becoming normal in people’s minds. It’s strange, but we hate our own shitty lives, we don’t want more exposure to everyone else’s.
okay so i guess this still needs clearing up. Its okay for a straight girl to ship gay ships. Its okay for a straight boy to ship femslash. The problem arises when yall oversexualise this. Sex isnt the only thing in a relationship. Don’t ship something because you think its “sexy” for two hot guys/girls to be making out. If you do that you are just like the guys jacking off to lesbian porn. Gay people Are not your toys for amusement. Ship respectfully, mkay?
take a step back. look at your beliefs, are they really your beliefs? or are they the beliefs others have led you to think are right?
the tumblr community is notorious for this! if you don’t fit the perfect mold of social justice, you like the wrong artists or tv shows, or you have beliefs that may be “problematic,” it won’t take long for tumblr to train you to think that your own beliefs are wrong.
don’t get me wrong, a lot of things i have learned on this website, particularly about social justice, have made a huge and great impact on my life. however, this summer i took a step back and realized that there are things that i “believed” that i didn’t actually think were right. there were people who i disliked only because they weren’t quite on the “approved list of non-problematic people” who were perfectly good human beings!
think long and hard about your own beliefs. use information to educate yourself, but do not let it take over your own beliefs “just because.”
think for yourself and don’t let tumblr destroy your self-identity
