Hot Take on the Scandals Right Now
I just have to say that I've been seeing a lot of people (not on Vingle cause tbh I've been MIA for a bit) saying that they feel bad for Seungri, JJY, Junhyung, etc. But I've got to say this: You should not be feeling bad for THEM. You should be feeling bad for YOU. The fans. That these men shattered your image of them, ruined the beautiful memories their music and fandom has given you, destroyed the joy that you felt from their stage presence. You should not feel bad for THEM. You should feel bad for the victims. They actively and/or passively hurt innocent women. Raped them, took pictures and videos of them without their knowledge and shared them with friends, rated their bodies, talked about them like they were pieces of meat. Even if they one "knew about the vids," they did nothing to stop it. You should feel bad for these women. Especially the women who came forward before and were forced to APOLOGIZE even though they were right all along. Do not feel bad for them and their true selves, feel bad for the fans, feel bad for the victims, but stop empathizing with these people you thought you knew. As someone who has lived through sexual assault, its infuriating. Yes, you have every right to be sad as a fan but not FOR your idol/bias, but rather feel sad that they ruined a beautiful part of your life. Please only feel pity for the true victims. You, the fandoms, and the assaulted women. Please.
