MY OPINION TIME.

SO.

It's no secret. There has been controversy in the ARMY fandom about this for a long, long time. And more recently, here on Vingle. My comments and concerns have been deleted on related cards and I'm tired of it.

ALIEN.

What do you think of when you think of alien? Out of this world, maybe. Alien invasion flicks, maybe.

PROBING?

I hope not.

Taehyung, unfortunately.

WHENEVER YOU HEAR THAT WORD,

it doesn't paint a pretty picture in your mind. Alien has negative connotation however you use it. "Illegal alien" is one of the MOST popular and MOST offensive ways to use it.

SO LET ME ASK YOU.

Why would you call someone that?

I KNOW.

The biggest majority of the fandom, the ones who call him an alien or call them selves Taeliens mean no harm. And that's alright. I understand. But what strikes me is that it is been said before many times by fans who have been at meetings that he doesn't like to be called 4D or an Alien. If someone asks not to be called a certain name, you don't call them that. It's common courtesy and respect.

EVEN IF he is okay with it now, or he does not address it as being a problem ( which thankfully it HAS died down a lot ) it still does not give anyone the green light to call him that.

Even if you mean well. Even if it's "a joke."

LOOK AT HIS EXPRESSION AS NAMJOON READS THE CARD.

And after teasing by Suga and Namjoon and Jimin, Jimin asks Taehyung to show them his out of this world persona of his. And Tae immediately clears it up. It is acting. That's just who he is.

HE'S NOT AN ALIEN.

He is a man who loves to be silly and act and have fun. He does it for entertainment. For himself or to cheer up fans or for his fellow members.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE.

Namjoon states that "this is his concept" and when the interviewer asks Yoongi about Daegu, Taehyung immediately counters back and looks offended.

He is also from Daegu.

WHY would they ask him about outer space?

I have no comment.

The original poster says what I feel and what I believe.

HERE ARE THE INTERVIEWS.

I DON'T BELIEVE IN FORCING MY OPINIONS ON ANYONE.

I am not trying to do that.

I am just tired of my opinion being deleted.

Taehyung is a silly, happy, and energetic 20 year old who loves what he does and how he does it. He is notorious for his attitude and his personality. There are other things he can be called than alien and IT IS SO EASY to refer to him as other names.

AND THIS IS WHERE I REST MY CASE.

Take from this card as you will. If you want to call him that nickname, I cannot and will not stop you. I just feel like he deserves better and is happier with better.

I totally agree with you, I don't call him 4D or alien I call him either Tae or Taehyung I love his name, I love his goofiness, he makes me smile when I'm sad. If he wasn't famous I could see us being friends and I would never be bored. Actually I think he is more like a pretty cat or fox.

@FaithMorrison Here you go. Now there's no excuse for this "no proof" nonsense because you can CLEARLY see he doesn't like it. Not the word and not the indirect implying of it.

I get your point and i think the alien thing with the shows went a little too far but he still never said he didnt like being called alien and i get the 4D one i guess i mean i think he is but if he doesnt thats his opinion. And with the acting thing did you see his picture of what hes gonna look like for his historical drama omg its great

@FaithMorrison I have and I'm excited because he loves acting and now he finally has a healthy way to channel his personality without gross fans calling him rude things because they ASSUME he doesn't mind it. My issue is there are a million things you can call him. Why be nasty and rude and disrespectful about it? The original interview was taken down because knetizens freaked out calling Taehyung UNGRATEFUL for their 'loving' alien nickname and that is why you cannot find the footage. But it has been recorded at fansigns and remnants of it can be seen in these interviews enough so that you can clearly tell he doesn't like that implication. If we as fans love him for who he is, we shouldn't call him something that has the slightest chance of upsetting him. You don’t do that to someone you love, proof or no proof. And that's why your parade of 'NO PROOF SO IT'S OKAY' is really bothering me. You're basically green-lighting a nasty nickname for the sake of there being insufficient evidence. And that's not okay by me.

Yeah i understand its just like rumors have been going around a lot lately about things so its just like i feel like i cant trust it unless i see proof and its not like hes the only one with nicknames that could come off as rude if you misunderstand it in groups but they usually have no problem with it. And I apologize for my rashness im on my period haha so im a little on edge
