he always wants the light on
when he's sleeping, says he's scared
but i can't see the point;

i say not all monsters
are trying to hurt you, at least
not right away

and his bottom lip goes
and he screams shut up
but i laugh and i tickle his ribs
and then he laughs with me

and he says
love you

and i say i love you too
little man

(i love you too)

Thanks if you read this, you're cool

Japanese Culture and 'Weeaboos'

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 26, 2014, 8:29 AM
I know what you're probably thinking from the title of this rant. 'Kyra's going to hate on everyone who likes anime and Japanese culture!'

Nah. :) Contrary to popular belief, I actually do really enjoy Japanese culture, fashion, food, music, and some anime art. What I don't like is when people take it so far and act like they know everything there is to know about Japan when they really don't know much more than a few Japanese words they learned from anime and how to make a bento. I know a lot of others have ranted about this before, and I'm not trying to jump on a bandwagon or anything, nor am I really 'ranting', I'm just stating my own opinions on this. You don't have to agree with me. If you don't, I'm fine with that. If you do, thank you! ^^

Japan is not all about anime characters and video games and we shouldn't treat it as such. It has its own unique culture and eccentric, interesting people. We should look at it as a country in a whole instead of caring only about the kawaii and sugoi things we can find there. 

I don't really use the term 'weeaboo' often, mainly because anyone who enjoys anime, whether obsessed with it or not, is going to be called that name at some point and I don't want anyone thinking I believe that every anime fan is a weeaboo. Kind of like people saying how every gore artist must be 'twisted' or not exactly right in the head or how every person who thinks wolves are cool animals is a 'wolfaboo'. It's just not so. I know anime fans that actually aren't rabid and insane and who are just as normal as everyone else. And trust me, we all go through those phases, haha. I went through an obsessed anime-fan phase. Inuyasha was my life for about a year or so. Then it was Death Note, which, you have to admit is a pretty cool series.

Anime can be a very beautiful art style, and I actually prefer to occasionally draw it or look at others' art than watch it or read manga, but it's not the only kind of art out there. I wish some people would stop acting like it is...

As far as the fashion goes, I don't see anything wrong with it. If you want to wear circle lenses to make your eyes look bigger and more anime-like, fine. If you want to wear your makeup to give yourself a more cartoony look, go ahead! You want to dress in cutesy clothes and wear the styles? You're free to do that, and if you can pull it off, rock it. It can be very artistic. However, it's when people like Venus Angelic use the style and act semi-retarded in order to be kawaii. That's not kawaii. You like the living-doll style? Cool, but don't pair that with a shitty attitude and lowered I.Q. for the sake of cuteness. Because it's far from cute. I'm pretty sure not all Japanese girls talk like they've sucked in helium and act like airheads. I believe she once told fans not to accept their bodies because it's 'shameful', and also once wrote that acting, yes, slightly retarded, is cute. No it isn't, and if you're doing it for the sake of 'looking Japanese', I see that as an insult to Japanese people. And it's definitely not cute to tell your fans that they shouldn't accept themselves, especially when most of the people who watch you are young girls who will be corrupted by such a statement.

Just remember:

:bulletpink:Being able to speak a few Japanese words doesn't make you an expert on the culture.

:bulletpink:Watching anime and reading manga doesn't make you an expert on Japanese culture.

:bulletpink:Wearing Lolita dresses and doing anime makeup doesn't make you an expert on Japanese culture.

:bulletpink:Listening to Vocaloid and J-Pop doesn't make you an expert.

:bulletpink:Eating sushi, pocky, and drinking ramune doesn't mean you know anything about Japanese culture.

Maybe I'm wrong here. I just think that Japan shouldn't be lowered to only the cute and pretty aspects of it, like anime, games, and the fashion. Anyway, I hope you all are doing well and having a great weekend so far. ^u^
