Can I just say that I don’t like endings.
It’s selfish but I always want things like this to last forever. I want to see how the story grows and flourishes or in this case mutates.
Well anyway gg everyone

Anonymous asked: Actually, they are alone. Pity you haven't done any background reading about things like the scoring system and how judges are selected beyond Korean Nationalist diatribe. I would have expected better from someone who postures at this "PoC" shit and frequently berates white people for perceived "racism". The only positive is that yet another country has gotten to know Koreans for what they really are. Funny how exposure to Korean behavior breeds resentment in everyone from Indians to Italians.
I never claimed my research was complete. The articles I’ve read, all from Western sources citing tweets, quotes and articles from primarily from non-Korean sources implied a much more global perspective. I haven’t even read an article from a Korean source, unless you count my Korean facebook friends posting the change.org petition. Normally I’d be happy to engage in this conversation and learn more from someone who knows more, but I’d be wasting my time with someone who’s just using this issue as a front to insult me and my nationality. Fuck off.
Anonymous asked: what did you think of kim yuna getting wrekt by the qt russian at sochi? korean netizens are acting like chimps about it.
I haven’t seen either program so I can’t make a particularly informed opinion on the quality of them, but I’ve been reading up on the scoring itself and a lot of articles/controversy around it. Koreans are notoriously touchy about the Olympics and I know how vicious Korean netizens can get about all sorts of things, so I’m sure to a certain degree the issue has been overblown somewhat, but I also see why it’s an actual controversy and not just “lol koreans being koreans.” The scoring margin between the two skaters as well as the dubious backgrounds of some of the judges certainly leaves a lot for questioning.
I do feel bad for the Russian skater though. If the next Winter Olympics are going to be held in Korea like I’ve heard, she’s going to have a rough time. This also happened on a worldwide stage, and Koreans are not alone in questioning the judging of this competition or the ability of Adelina in comparison to two very seasoned, veteran skaters. With so many people questioning the call of the judges, I can only imagine how difficult it’ll be for her to prove herself to the world.
