[Update] Male idols accused of promoting shota, so it’s immediately dismissed as garbage

Korean and international netizens were already starting to backtrack on the whole lolita bandwagon after Suzy was roped in, but then EXO got brought up and suggestions of shota (the male lolita equivalent) became absolutely preposterous!

“This is definitely not”
“This is not really shota”
“They’re just adults wearing costumes like a coat and some hat, this is not shota”
“This is no different from gag men disguising as kindergarten kids! Don’t misunderstand”

1. That wouldn’t be considered lolita, but shota… But even I can’t tell if this is shota.. People just want to put a label on everything nowadays..
2. I seriously don’t see this as problematic
3. I find it even weirder that OP sees this as something sexual. What sexual innuendos do these pictures have…?
4. Lolita and shota are kinda different but… You’re turning a Peter Pan concept into shota…
5. I’m so at loss of words right nowㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I’m speechlessㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
6. I would find it hilarious if this becomes an issue.. It’s just a fairy costumeㅋ And those stickers aren’t even what EXO are actually wearing ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
7. Huh??? How is this shota??????????ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
8. Geezㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ all I see are music fairiesㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
9. Aren’t they just pulling off a cute concept? Like Snow white and the 7 dwarfs
10. You can straight up look at it and realize there’s nothing lolita about it

Should EXO get hate for this? Absolutely not, but the different standards are quite amusing to see unfold like this.

The stuff being said here by both Korean and international netizens defending EXO is the exact same shit they dismiss as delusional to NOT see while they’re going after Sulli or IU or Hara. You, me, and everybody else knows exactly how shit would go down if any of them were photographed sucking on a pacifier. Doesn’t matter the reason cause nobody would care before flipping out. Hell, IU sucked on a baby bottle in her MV to make an overt point about being pigeonholed into a childish image (so basically saying the exact opposite of what people accused her of), and people witch hunted her for promoting lolita. But this, well it’s just so OBVIOUS to everybody how it’s complete garbage.

It’s hilariously transparent.

(Update)

Why are people all pissed and arguing the EXO stuff isn’t sexual? I’m aware of that and never said it was. I’m saying if IU or Sulli or Hara or maybe now Suzy was sucking on a pacifier for any reason, people wouldn’t care about listening to reason. Your exasperation over the ridiculousness of all this is basically exactly what I’m saying.

Anyway, now that Reading 101 is out of the way, somebody pointed out that BTS is being roped into this shota shit as well (that’s a link to a fan clarifying, so obviously it was spread).

Meh, but this is becoming a netizen thing, so … oh boy.

People are just throwing shit against the wall at this point.

(Update Again)

Now they’ve included a bunch of a male idols.

Netizens have been spreading this one as well…

…welp.

And of course, more people proving my point, which is always nice.

“Some of them are actual kids though and are dressed for their age…”
“Eh, this seems like a stretch”
“Dream really are kids though”
“What’s so shota about Taemin’s picture???? He looks rather mature in that picture to me…”
“The Dream kids are actual kids… they’re wearing clothes meant for kids.”
“How is the Sherlock concept shota at all?”
“There’s nothing sexual about these pictures though ㅋㅋㅋㅋ just because they’re wearing shorts and showing some skin doesn’t make it shota ㅋㅋㅋ”

Huh, funny that.
