I really loved your well thought reply to the previous anons. I really hate when random ppl tell others that theyre "overreacting". I think this attitude is self-centered and insensitive. When ppl discuss something that actually didnt shock me, i either try to understand or i move on and mind my own business but i dont guilt trip them by saying theyre overreacting. I love BTS but theyve said some ugly stuff and ppl have the right to react and discuss about it.
thank you! and i agree with you, it’s important to think about these things critically
@that anon that was wondering about bts being problematic, bebitojoonie made a post about namjoon (since he’s the one who tends to get the most backlash it probably contains what they were looking for) it’s worth a read and she doesn’t play down the issues with his or the other members mistakes only gives examples of them growing from them /post /161878380803/ problematic-namjoon
here, i find the article still a tiny bit biased, but for the most part it’s good. tbh i’m always mad when people use namjoon as the example of a “problematic” idol, when in my eyes he is the best example of someone who does their best to learn from their mistakes, he always learns and grows from it and then actively tries to do well and be a positive influence, that is the least problematic thing in the world in my eyes :/
“Further than a mistake, it was a wrong.”
“I was really wrong then“
“I want to be an artist that has good influence. I hope my music would help others. So, I decided to go in a better way. My goal for 2017 is to be mature in many ways, including my way of thinking.
“My words or behaviors, regardless of my intentions, could cause troubles or hurt others feelings. In the process, I thought I need to hold responsibility for that and I need to think about such things. What I said or did would not be undone.
“Anyways, to become a better person, I need to hold responsibility for what I do.“
“Everything is my fault.“
“I apologize to the people who pointed this out and to individuals who were hurt. I am sorry and thankful for the fans who are always supportive, despite my shortcomings.
I would like to apologize once again to everyone I have caused trouble for.
and one of my fav quotes:
“I don’t think I’m always right, or that I’m the one who can explain everything. I’m just a man who wants to be better and make better things. That’s it.“
like he listens to people’s criticism and he wants to do better, that’s why it’s not a good thing to go around screaming that people are overreacting when something happens and trying to coddle and hide the controversy, if a wrong has been done, well then it has to be known to them so they can correct it, and the fact that namjoon is the way he is when it comes to his fuck ups is actually what makes me like him even more, he’s the kind of guy that will go and read a book on feminism after being accused of misogyny, like.. what else do you want
