Oh snap, Kpopalypse and AKF team up once again to do a collaboration post. Both of us get a lot of spam on our ask.fm accounts, but one recurring type of message that we both receive is about anons telling us that our biases are ugly. Not content to do it just once, they spam our ask.fm queues with the same kind of questions.
The other day, while checking my email account, I saw about ten notifications from ask.fm, all of the messages occurring within a few minutes of each other. I knew one person had to have asked all of those at once. Judging by the questions, my assumption is likely correct.
I don't understand how insulting idols that I like is somehow an insult to me. Am I supposed to get mad that you don't like the same people that I do? I don't have time for that shit because I don't care about others' opinions when it comes to things and people that I like.
For instance, even though Kpopalypse oppar states that sports and K-pop do not mix, a sports analogy works perfectly in this context.
In the NFL, I like the Dallas Cowboys, which is America's team. That also makes them the most hated team among other fans. I still support them even though they have sucked so much dick the past few years. However, whenever other people criticize the Cowboys, I don't get mad and throw a hissy fit just because they don't like Cowboys. Hell, I even call Tony Romo "Tony Homo" because he always sucks a huge bag of dicks in the fourth quarter and loves to throw the fucking football to the other team when the game is on the line. I make fun of that fucker more than anyone else I know, so insulting him or anyone else on the Cowboys doesn't phase me, as I will join in with you.
For college football, I like THE Ohio State Buckeyes. They are easily one of the most hated teams throughout the country and ESPN can't go five minutes without bagging on Ohio State whenever the network is covering college football. Sure, we Buckeye fans may be the most obnoxious in the country, but I love how everyone is so obsessed with OSU that they have to put the team down time after time just so that they feel their team is superior. If hating on Ohio State gives you something to masturbate to, why should I ruin your fun? It's not like I give a shit. Aside from making jokes about how much Michigan sucks dick, I don't have the time to follow other teams and ridicule them. I just like supporting the team I have been a fan of since I was a little kid.
Back to K-pop, the same thing applies here. Just because you don't like the same groups/idols that I do, it doesn't mean that I care. I don't have to look to other people to like the same things I do to get confirmation that my opinions are correct. However, many Kpop fans think that way, which is why they get so defensive and have to hate on groups and idols to make themselves feel better. They get butthurt so easily whenever their favorite is made fun of...which is exactly why I go after low-hanging fruit like Hyoyeon, Bom, Hyorin, etc. because they are from popular groups that have a lot of fans who get butthurt easily. Contrary to what a lot of K-pop fans think, I don't hate anyone in K-pop. I don't have the time to be wasting energy hating on someone I don't even know. However, a lot of K-pop fans love to spend more time hating on idols/groups they don't like than spending time supporting the idols/groups that they do like.
So to this person, go ahead and hate on Soyeon and Haeryung if it helps you to get off. Maybe one day we can sit back-to-back and fap to them together if that is what you wish for. With how much you're spamming my ask.fm account, I'm sure your hate-fueled rage helps you rub one off to Haeryung and Soyeon.
When I was really young and still in school, I hated girls. Why did girls and girly things even exist? What was the point of Barbie dolls and fairy shit? Nobody wants those dresses and pink toys and stuff, except one dude at school who seemed kind of effeminate and hung around with girls a lot and who was obviously gay. Not gay meaning "guy who likes the cock" because my uneducated dumb ass didn't even know that gay sex and guys liking other guys sexually was a thing that existed, I just thought "gay" meant "someone who seemed kind of girly and likes girly things" because that's the only context I ever saw the word used in (these were pre-Internet days, you couldn't just look stuff up and discover immature snarky blogs like you can now). I wasn't into any of that girly stuff, I liked my toy car and gun collection and 80s action films with guns and explosions and computer games where you get to kill and blow up shit. Girls hated me too because I was such a misogynist little cunthole, as well as just a really unlikeable and ugly person with no personality or redeeming features generally, which was fine by me because I didn't want to talk to any of them anyway, and so all was well in my world.
Then, something happened to fuck everything up - puberty. Those strange female creatures at my school who previously repulsed me became extremely interesting to me, all of a sudden. I still wasn't interested in pink clothes, but I became suddenly very interested in what was underneath some of those pink clothes, so I tried to get to know some of these strange "girl" creatures that I had previously shunned in the hope of gaining easier access to these "areas of interest". Of course, because I had been so rude to all of them previously, plus I had no social skills to speak of having never developed this side of myself and was a complete ugly drooling tits-obsessed pervert (having only just discovered the wonderous nature of female boobs), they very sensibly didn't want to know me. In the meantime, that guy who I thought was gay actually was not gay, and not only that, he was surrounded by all the girls that he had previously been nice to. It became clear to me quite quickly that I really hadn't thought any of this through.
Eligible girls in my school were in short supply. Firstly, they had to be into decent music that I was into just so we'd have enough in common that my vastly deficient social skills could stand some chance of keeping up with any kind of conversation. I'd also discovered heavy metal, so that knocked out about 97% of the female school population straight off the bat because they were mostly into trash like Bon Jovi (#1 heartthrob material of the day) and not cool stuff like Slayer and Metallica (this was before Metallica became a pop group with the shitty commercial "Black Album" and crushed the dreams of metalheads everywhere) and they wanted to talk about fashion and hairspray (this was the 80s) instead of how that guy from Kreator can possibly scream like that for such a long period at concerts. On top of this, for me to consider a girl eligible she had to be hot, even though I certainly wasn't even remotely hot according to them - but being a hypocrite hadn't bothered me up until this point so I figured I might as well go with the flow. Girls being "hot" in my eyes meant a pretty face and some nice boobs... and for most girls at the time both of those things were still a "work in progress" so there went about 90% of whoever was remaining on the eligibility list once music taste was factored in. This left an extremely limited pool of girls to work with, most of whom already justifiably hated me.
This problem was then compounded some more by the fact that I wasn't the only weird metalhead with a hard-on at my school, several other guys shared my outlook and naturally had similar preferences. The other metalhead guys knew that they didn't stand a chance with some girl who was into New Kids On The Block or Vanilla Ice, how were they going to compete with the carefully chiseled features of American boy-pop? So they also zoomed in on the school's few attractive "metal girls", who suddenly found themselves dealing with advances from desperate scungy-looking long-haired guys left and right - me included. I found that whenever I'd start crushing on an eligible and attractive girl at school, as soon as I started making advances, one of my more charismatic and socially adept male peers would sense alarm bells ringing and swoop in to redirect her attention. Being sensible and smart, the girl would choose the more attractive option (i.e not me), and soon they would be walking around in school lunch break holding hands and whispering sweet metal-related nothings into each others' ears and meeting each other after class at their houses for "music study sessions". This happened again and again all throughout high school and by the time I had finally lost my virginity long after school days were over the metal soundtrack to it wasn't even any good anymore, the cool thrash and death metal of the 80s and 90s having been replaced with some hippity-hoppity garbage for fuckheads called "nu-metal". No wonder I've since bailed out of the metal scene to the world of k-pop.
I developed a habit thanks to my high school experiences which has continued into my adulthood... whenever I really like someone of the opposite sex and want to get to know them better, I keep that shit as much under the radar of everybody I can as humanly possible. I've found the worst thing I can do after meeting a nice girl is go and tell my male peers "gee, she's nice", because the risk that they'll notice this, agree and do something about it before I do could be quite high. If I'm single I don't have conversations with guys about other girls and I don't like to hear about what they like, because then they might start asking me about who I like and I don't want to tell them - mind your own fucking business thanks cunts. Although I haven't been single for many years, whenever I get questions or comments about my k-pop biases along the lines of "she's ugly" or "how can you be into THAT?" I smile to myself. It's an indicator that my sexual tastes can stray far from the majority, and that makes me feel very comfortable - if I ever am single again, there'll be less competition... for Raina.
