Anonymous asked: Did you read the article on Lee Hoo's tweets? It seems that SE is starting ZE:A badly. Do you think that our Namyu ladies are treated the same way?

9muses-international:

I just read it and if you are a MINE or ZE:A´S or Jewelry fan, than you know how badly all the idols in this company get treated. 

It´s beyond disgusting..

Just a few examples: 

What Sera said on their documentary 

image

For the CEO (and probably the rest of the staff) they are just dolls, that have to be perfect, beautiful in every way and if they don´t make enough money they get just kicked out or recycled. 

The CEO slapping Sera openly on camera

In the documentary, you can see that she flinches and closes her eyes already when he only raises his hand which means that the idols there get hit on a regular basis and just have to cope with it.

Inhuman. 

Complete starving, especially for the female idols

Before their debut, 9Muses & Jewelry members had to go on the worst diets ever: eating completely nothing! Yewon talked about this on a show before, saying that at that time even grass seemed delicious to her because she was so hungry. 

Sexual harassment

The staff and CEO just touch ALL of the idols wherever and how much they want taking dance practice or cloth fitting as an excuse…Imagine having to stand in a room practically just in your underwear and old man/women stare, point at you and touch you…I don´t even wanna think about that. 

Selling their idols for money

And not the normal way because all companies do that. I mean stuff like what happened to Taeheon. Of course it is not confirmed, but I think that their CEO sold Taeheon for money to fight against that other fighter so that guy´s retiring match makes him look even more glorious, winning against an idol! Why I think that?

1) First I did not know or heard any of the ZE:A members are in to MMA. Never heard him participated in any amateur fight, much more a professional fight or did he?

2) Although his opponent was retiring, this was his job & he is well experienced in MMA fights. He is well trained…how about Tae Heon?

3) Why would he go fighting around the same time as their comeback? Their concert? Doesn´t make any sense, right?

Breaking their minds and driving them into depression

Have you ever heard of the method they use in circuses for elephants? They chain them when they are young and scare them so much that, even when they grow up and are big and strong, they don´t attempt to run away or break their chains even though they easily could now. 

Same method that SE uses. 

In the documentary it´s revealed that ALL 9Muses members have an unhealthy amount of stress and exhaustion buried in their bodies. So much, that even the doctor was surprised and scared for them. Leehoo of ZE:A even attempted suicide and we don´t know how many more of Jewelry, ZE:A, 9Muses or VOS did…Mental illnesses are sometimes even worse then physical injuries! 

Those are only a few of the things they do to them and I hate the CEO and company for that. But what could we fans do until now? Nothing. 

But now is finally our chance! 

Leehoo is brave enough to do something against this corrupted system and we, the fans, every person that likes K-Pop, heck, every normal thinking person on this planet should support him!!!

#WeSupportLeehoo

Well, atleast that is what I will do. Will you?

(Sorry for the long post..I got carried away because this topic is really important to me; not only as a MINE, but also as a human being!)

I suggest all females watch this. 

*i suggest all humans watch this.

THIS SHOULD BE REQUIRED WATCHING FOR ALL HUMANS

I’m a 17 year old white guy living in middle class America. I’ve never exactly been a supporter of feminism because that kind of thing has never really affected me personally. I don’t notice it and I don’t care about it. But in nine minutes this video has made what is truly a serious problem extremely apparent. Those “why I need feminism” posts or those slut-shaming or rape culture campaigns never convince me of anything. But this video actually did I think.

tl;dr This video kicks ass, just watch it.

Stop what you’re doing and watch this

I watched this with my mom. This is really great. I love this.

Chances are, if you’re a woman and you’ve had much contact with the leadership of FIFA, you have a story to tell about sexism and soccer’s world governing body.

U.S. forward Abby Wambach tells one from the time she and her now-wife, Sarah Huffman, were backstage in a VIP room in January 2013 before the World Player of the Year awards gala in Zurich, Switzerland. “[FIFA president] Sepp Blatter came into our little area, and he walked straight up to Sarah and thought she was [Brazilian star] Marta,” says Wambach.

“Marta!” Blatter said, hugging a bewildered Huffman, who doesn’t look much like Marta. “You are the best! The very best!”

“He had no idea who Marta was, and she’s won the award five times,” says Wambach. “For me, that’s just a slap in the face because it shows he doesn’t really care about the women’s game.”

**********

Former U.S. World Cup winner Julie Foudy tells a story about the time she was part of the globally televised draw for the men’s 1998 World Cup in Marseille, France. Blatter said something about her onstage in French. “I don’t speak French,” says Foudy, “but when I got off the stage two women who worked for FIFA were kind of angry.”

“Why are you angry?” Foudy asked them.

“We don’t like what he just said about you,” said one.

“What did he say?”

“That they brought you here because you looked good—and nothing about your football.”

With Women’s World Cup on horizon, sexism remains part of FIFA culture (via aplacethatdoesntknowmyname)
