Some interesting info: This is very reminiscent of the Baby X experiments, in which it was discovered that people reacted differently to a baby’s behavior depending on whether or not they believed the baby to be male or female. People were asked to watch a video of a baby reacting to a startling image (a Jack-in-the-box popping up), and describe the baby’s emotional state. When people believed the baby to be female, they described the baby as being scared and upset; when they thought the baby was male, they perceived the baby to be angry. This was very telling, as it showed that literally identical behavior could be construed differently based on the perceived gender of the subject.
Now imagine a lifetime of gender specific socialization- male anger is par for the course while the same emotion in a woman is personal weakness. Ha oh sorry don’t have to imagine THAT’S REALITY
don’t underestimate me. i’ll wear sweaters in the summer. i’ll eat like eighteen gallons of ice cream in the winter. fuck the temperature. i don’t give a fuck
A recent fancam of EXO sasaeng fans chasing SHINee’s Taemin surfaced on YouTube. In the video you can see a group of fan girls, allegedly EXOtics, screaming and running after Taemin. The viewer can then see Taemin bolting away from the fans who seemed to hound him.
In the video fans even scream, "Oppa don’t go!! Oppa!!" over and over again.
One of the girls involved in the incident even uploaded this on Instagram:
The incident is causing an outrage amongst various fandoms not only because of sasaeng fans invading Taemin’s personal space, but also because of illegitimate accusations that Taemin was involved in “gay activities.”
