When people say “culture is meant to be shared” I’m literally like ???? Because that has literally never been the purpose of any culture. Culture is about identity, community and family. It’s about tradition. It is not and has never been about “sharing”.

Say it!

They keep saying “shared” when they mean “made available for my consumption.”

and boom goes the dynamite

KimonoTime, A.K.A. Kelsey Ellison’s experience with X-Factor UK

Please read:
TLDR: I got scouted and had a private audition because of my videos and made me feel they were really interested in kpop. The celebrity judges in the room audition wanted more Korean and then at Wembley the monitors weren’t on so I couldn’t hear my voice and was told I was terrible and they didn’t understand why I sung in Korean and I was in the wrong country, humiliating me in front of 5,000 people. In both auditions I didn’t get chance to prepare, because in the room audition they forgot about me and in the Wembley Audition they abandoned me and then put me on first.

Even though this isn’t related to shopping or my blog in particular, I felt the need to share this because it does relate to how Asian fashion, music, and the culture in general is perceived and manipulated by the media. It’s unfortunate that Kelsey was sought out for the sole purpose of making her, and kpop enthusiasts, look like fools. For another example of how this often happens, watch TLC’s My Strage Addiction “Living Doll” episode which features Venus Angelic and a girl named Emily, who are both into lolita or jfashion. While Venus’s segment may be true to her character, Emily’s segment was very scripted and edited and made to look weird and both Venus’s and Emily’s segments were manipulated to give a misrepresentation of the lolita subculture or jfashion in general. 

With that small slightly-irrelevant rant aside, I wish for others to spread this around, because it isn’t fair to Kelsey that she was badly mistreated and it was very unprofessional and misleading on X-factor’s end, especially if this could have potentially hurt Kelsey’s career or give her a bad image.

Thank you so so much for sharing this and to everyone who has been supporting me! <3

A friend just showed me this let me make a few points real fast ok

  • You were humiliated because you put yourself in that position. The judges were right to question why you were attempting Korean because it was obviously unnatural to you and you were using it for the sake of being different or “exotic”. You were using the language as a costume and that’s why it’s bad and you deserved what you got.
  • This has nothing to do with how Korean media or culture is portrayed and everything to do with white people appropriating our language to seem different and just end up making a mockery of it, and of themselves.
  • In response to the person who commented above, there is no such thing as Asian culture.
  • There is
  • no such
  • thing as
  • "Asian culture"
  • "Rini"? Either this is from Sailor Moon or you just found the name somewhere, either way.. Give me a fucking break.

Damn that turned innocent to calling out sexism real fast

But the best thing is that it wasn’t planned, I think that’s why I love livestreams so much. There’s no editing so it’s just them.

Woman live tweets IBM execs discussing why they don’t hire women, tries not to throw up

Toronto-based editor Lyndsay Kirkham has started a firestorm this week after overhearing what was apparently an incredibly sexist conversation between IBM executives at lunch — and live-tweeting it.

Unaware that they were transmitting sexist nonsense to cyberspace, the IBM executives openly discussed “why they don’t hire women.” If you take Kirkham’s account at its word, it actually gets way worse.

But wait, there’s more Follow micdotcom
