2021.12.07 14:32 bellaofwar 3rd gen groups are not attending award shows not because they can't, but because they don't have to/don't want to
I feel like this has to be said. Recently due to the lack of 3rd gen groups in year-end shows' line-ups, a lot of people have been making posts (and not just on here), about how the ''3rd gen groups are fading'' and how we are ''transitioning to a new era'' and ''3rd gen fans need to make peace with it'', etc., while I feel like no one is really denying the ''new era'' part. Everyone knows kpop is cyclical, every industry IS, obviously newer idols/groups will have their moment and will be more active when it comes to certain things. I think 3rd gen fans acknowledge all of this but it's the condescending tone and exaggerations that really get on people's nerves.
It's very natural and obvious that companies are now pushing their newer groups, letting them attend shows and have the spotlight to themselves so they can get established, it's been like 2-3+ years for a lot of these 4th gen groups since their debut so it only makes sense. In return, companies are giving their veteran acts more freedom and more free time to focus on other things. It is not a bad thing and I wouldn't even mind it if all groups in the line-up were 4th gen, I like a few 4th gen groups so it's not an issue, good for them. But what annoys me is those exaggerated remarks people make about 3rd gen groups, acting like they were either shut out from those shows because shows now care more about 4th gen because they ''took over'' or because they are ''fading'' and irrelevant. Award shows exist so acts can promote themselves there, trophies aside, a lot of these senior groups just don't depend on them like before. They are instead busy with xmas releases, international promotions, solo work, concerts or simply taking breaks. I do not deny that a lot of the 3rd gen groups will likely go on hiatuses or some will even disband, it is inevitable, but A LOT of them will also still stay active. The industry doesn't exist in a vacuum, a lot of 4th gen groups are not immune to hiatuses or disbandment either. Sure, we are transitioning to an era where 4th gen groups get pushed into the spotlight more but the way people word themselves like the most prominent mid-tier and top-tier 3rd gen groups and idols just gonna vanish from the face of the industry feels like either concern trolling or just attempts at creating drama. We still have even 2nd gen groups and idols making comebacks and even attending shows now and then (SuJu in 2017 an easy one I can think of).
On the other hand I am not disregarding the fact that some 3rd gen fans are also being annoying by constantly commenting on the line-ups by calling them weak and whatnot. Or interacting with posts from Pann of knetz ''criticizing'' the line-up, when if you've been in kpop long enough, you'd know knetz always criticize each line-up every year and are never happy. lol So yes, I do agree it kind of goes both ways and I think those fans just need to stop being so petty. Like I'd understand if you just want to comment you wish your ults were there but we all know there is a difference in tone between that and what I refer to.
However, while I'm not trying to excuse it, I feel like we also should acknowledge that a lot of 3rd gen fans' reactions stem from the fact that new gen fans constantly antagonize them with the ''doomsday'' predictions which are becoming very tiring. I feel like a lot of people can back me up on this that such ''3rd gen is fading'' type of posts have been a trend since mid-2020 and now with 3rd gen not attending certain shows it has gotten even more repetitive, so I wish people also realize that while 3rd gen fans definitely can be unnecessarily harsh on new gen stans and groups, it partly stems from the fact that they're fed up with the unprovoked doom scenarios that get pushed monthly so it's kind of a typical fan reflex (albeit immature) for some fans to fire back with something else.
I wish we just stay out of each other's hairs. I feel like both sides are over-dramatizing the whole thing and it just creates an annoying atmosphere.

2021.12.07 14:32 nothingnewboy22 I don't know what to do and I'm getting depressed
in 2019 i was in my last year of high school and i was studying to enter a university, i was so desperate that i didn't think about the future. I had two options, studying medicine or the law, medicine is very difficult so I would have to try the test many times while the other option I entered on the first try, I was under a lot of pressure and I couldn't take it anymore, my mind was focused on just stop this angst of searching for a university so i grabbed the laws at a university near my city. I live in a small town that has between 6000 inhabitants, everyone knows everyone here, I didn't hate my city but as I'm gay and from the new generation, with time I realized that this was not the right place for me, I don't like it here, but I only realized this last year and now I'm at a university I'm very sad, I can't have fun here, there are no interesting people. My only option is to go back to taking exams in search of a university outside here but I would have to give up what I'm doing now and I'm very scared, not to mention that I have the possibility of failing in this search and my mental health can't take it anymore The pressure I felt, I don't know what to do, I just know I'm getting very sad and I'd like to die

2021.12.07 14:32 McClanky How can Christians be at the forefront of helping the youth mental health crisis in the US?
The US, and the rest of the world, is currently experiencing one of the worst youth mental health crisis it has ever seen. The numbers were shocking before the pandemic, but have gotten worse since.
Some of the major reasons for this crisis are bullying, loneliness, perceived social expectations, perceived physical expectations, and the loss of a loved one.
To put this into perspective, in 2018, the second leading cause of death for people between the ages of 10 and 24 was suicide.
From February to March of this year, emergency department visits for suspected suicide attempts were up 51% for girls ages 12 to 17, compared with the same period in 2019My question is, how can Christians be leaders in reversing this terrible trend?
in 2020, the percentage of emergency department visits for mental health emergencies rose by 24% for children between the ages of 5 and 11 and 31% for those 12 to 17, compared with 2019.

2021.12.07 14:32 TrueAd6339 Sleeping in the Refugee Camp is unbearable
Sleeping in the refugee camp was one of the worst decisions i have ever made. Safety in numbers was what i was expecting.And numbers i did get.Due to the population inside the Refugee Camp your device will calculate every single move of every living thing within the Vicinity. Which include but are not limited to monsters in the closet (locked room), random spawns from outside the camp, and EVERY FUCKING NPC IN THE CAMP!!! Every action that consumes time within the refugee camp takes longer to load, for example Crafting, Cooking, Reading, and God Forbid Sleeping. For contrast for every 1 hour i spend sleeping outside at least 5 or 6 hours have passed in the camp. Now i know why Those refugees hate the camp.
