Oli London, or whatever his real name is, is a white British guy who's had multiple plastic surgeries in an attempt to resemble a particular Korean pop star. He claims to be "transracial" and to identify as Korean. Oh, and he uses "they/them" pronouns, of course.

He's now apologized to the Asian community for his cultural appropriation. Is anyone going to apologize to women?

I've never understood how white liberals all immediately understand that a white person can't identify into another race, but somehow don't understand that a biologically male person can't identify into the other sex.

London went on to say they still "identify as Korean."

Oh, thank god. 😂 I was very disappinted for a second there.

Don't let the woke BIGOTS get you down, Oli! You're more Korean than anyone will ever be. 🇰🇷🐄

"Is any one going to apologize to women?" Now there's a great question.

At this point, I don't really care if they apologize. Most male detransitioners (especially the AGP ones) have deep mental health issues of their own that they should be working on. All I want them to do is stop trying to blame women for all their problems.

I also never understood this. I have heard very good arguments for why womanface and blackface are comparable, but I have yet to hear a single good argument for why they aren't.

From what I understand, Oli did the pronoun thing to troll the TRAs. For a long time his "pronoun" was kor/re/a or something like that. He drove the TRAs crazy because TRAs kept telling him he can't be transracial and people can only be transgeder.

Yeah I still think he's trolling. Everything he does is to grab attention and make headlines. He LIKES inviting rage because it means he gets to stay in the spotlight. I think this "apology" is just a calculated drop to keep him relevant so we talk about him again.

MISOGYNY

Is anyone going to apologize to women?

I think we all know the answer to that one.

If he wanted to, he could get a Korean citizenship and he could actually become Korean.

...if they would have him, which they wouldn't. Because countries, and racial groups, are allowed to police their own borders and decide who can and can't come in. Somehow only women are not.

That's what he wants to do, but he will still be a white man identifying as ethnically Korean and he's going to have an epic meltdown when and if he moves there and finds out the Koreans aren't tolerating his bullshit.

Korean citizenship is something actually attainable, unlike becoming XX female. If he gets the citizenship, he'll be more Korean than any TIMs are women.

I remember that dude! He looks even worse than the last time I saw him. That plastic surgery makes him look uncanny as hell. I've seen less scary robots. ;o;

It's too late. This is almost the same as the Western "yellow face" dress, very offensive.

I wouldn't even say "almost" the same. It is exactly the same, except he's going even further into the offensive zone by claiming he has a right to identify as Asian/Korean.

And technically he could become literally Korean by going through whatever residency and citizenship requirements they have.

Honestly, most people think so uncritically and just repeat the popular slogans of their social bubbles that if there were ever a significant movement that advocated for "changing race" (and you'd be celebrated for that instead of rightfully ridiculed), they'd go along with it too.
