P.S No hate on bg or gg stans. Plently of them are hella mature about it especially 3/4rth gen. This is more aimed at the industry and the whole "not like other girls" bs, young women are force fed by media that leads to this behaviour.
I'm sure there are plenty of female idols I've missed out on. It's just that I've seen it so often with these two. I'd like to hear your thoughts on them and the other idols as well.
They get hated on in relation to bg idols if the guys show an inkling of interest. Whereas with gg idols or "y/n" they are the much hated competition to the chaste "good" idol who doesn't know how gorgeous she is and isn't that into boys or style like other girls. Sounds familiar? *Wink wink*
Hwasa had literally just a few clips of her walking in award shows or performing where some popular bg's were ogling her and smiling. The next day "woke" stan twitter was spewing vitriol on her. A woman who's confident in her beauty and dresses up is a crime. She shows her body means she's a "whore". Women are only hot when "she doesn't know she's beautiful" uwu.
People who don't know her go after her age when she's just 25 cuz older male love interests are hot and mature but older female love interests are exploitative cougars ofc. Or people went outta their way to dig up cultural appropriation or literally any controversy that she's already apologised for. It's sad.
She's definitely more liked than Hwasa in terms of stan twitter/fanfics but she's often portrayed as the stereotypical rich pretty socialite, from fanfics to people's general view of her. I feel this trope was something yg forced or enhanced with her image as well. The girl is drastically different both on/off stage. People go out of their way to make her seem like this villain who has it all and "steals men". She gets hated on and slutshamed for her dating scandals which aren't even scandals. If she can't dance to injuries people made sexual jokes about her. It's sickening.
Like both of them are not 2 dimensional charecters that are immune to hate. They are human beings and people refuse to see that.
I can hardly blame these young girls.
Time and time again we've seen how the whole Madonna/whore complex plays out in media all over the world. Boy leaves confident hot girl for good relatable self insert girl. Its never the two timing "bad boy" that's the villain but the "other girl" that was probably just lead on aswell. That's what we were taught movies or even music like Skater boy or You belong with me kinda reinforces the same shit like a subliminal.
Self inserts are problematic but why do these girls that identify with the y/n trope lack the confidence even in an imaginary sense to put themselves into the confident woman's shoes? The logic that a girl can like a guy outta their own accord or initiate the first move potrayed as "slutty" and "immoral"or makes her "easy" is so sad. Good ol' sexism.
Ofc another end of the spectrum also exists where being nice to men and not a man hater is seen as uncool and desperate for validation in this climate. You just can't win in society. I really hope the future generation and media leaves juvenile shit like man hating/woman hating or slutshaming to rot. Even the boomers must've been tired of eating and vomiting the "woman bad/man bad now laugh" format.
