If you read the Gyaru secrets from this week you'll probably understand where this rant is coming from. Normally I rarely read Gyaru secrets and when I do it's just a quick skim, there's only so much negativity I can take. This week a certain secret stating that black girls can't be Gyaru was posted and it honestly pissed me off. I'm sick and tired of the whole race debate when it comes to a fashion style, a fucking fashion style!!! The hilarious argument stated that black people's skin is too dark and we all look like gorillas...apparently. If any of these posters actually followed the history of Gyaru they would know it started with Japanese girls and boys tanning and darkening their skin to extreme lengths. The whole basis of Gyaru was to break the norms of society, of course nowadays that isn't the case but that was the stance at the beginning. There's also a stupid and ridiculous argument that our noses are too big and we have wider faces.
First of all the way IT DOESN'T MATTER what your face is shaped like that's why there's a such thing as contouring. It's essential to Gyaru that you contour your face whether or not your face is shaped like a square(like mine) or a 'perfect' oval. It has nothing to do with your natural head shape it's simply about the illusion, the MAKE UP! There's plenty of Japanese gyaru with big noses(why do you think they contour?) and full lips. I don't care if some people find black women unattractive, BIG DEAL, that's not the point the point is most of these arguments are based simply on stupid, racist, ugly opinions. These aren't fact it's just an opinion. Gyaru has nothing to with race it's about standing out, being fashionable, and creating a 'big-eye' effect. Being tanned use to be a big deal in Gyaru and nowadays it's not as expected as before BUT that doesn't mean tanned Gyaru don't exist! There are still plenty of gals with extremely tanned skin who would probably be pissed if they knew some (hopefully few) western Gyaru were shitting on their skin tone. Some of these Japanese Gyaru are just as dark as others born with brown/black skin. So using the argument that our skin tone is too dark is irrelevant.
Also saying we all look like gorillas is also irrelevant and I won't even write about that. I happen to think gorillas are cute. -_- Also to say that the black Gyaru expect 'privileges' in the Gyaru community is a bunch of horse shit. End of story. Being rude, mean, or bitchy is a human trait not just a 'black' trait. The Gyaru sub style B-Gyaru is greatly inspired by the hip hop culture/black culture. To say black people can't follow Gyaru would mean that B-Gyaru shouldn't exist. Am I right? Lastly the poster stated that we all wear cheap wigs which means this poster knows every black Gyaru in the community and is aware of how much we all spend on all of our wigs. IRRELEVANT. Final verdict I honestly don't give a rats ass if people don't find black women beautiful but just because you're a racist asshole cunt doesn't mean you should try to exclude a certain group of people from a popular fashion style. At the end of the day we're ALL human and we all bleed the same color.
Obviously this is just a personal rant, I don't expect to change the minds of any racist people(Not that I care). But I made this rant for the girls who believe they can't be Gyaru because they think they're to dark, to pale, to fat, short hair, no hair, etc. You can do whatever you put your mind too but you have to PRACTICE and work towards it. Don't let the opinions of others stop you from achieving your goals!
SO ACCORDING TO SOME PEOPLE THESE GIRLS BELOW SHOULD BE BAD EXAMPLES OF GYARU CAUSE THEY'RE TOO DARK...
Thanks for reading!
