Today I found out that the International Part of Black Diamond is nothing more than a "Fan Club."
It's safe to say that I'm really pissed about it. Here I thought this small chapter would grow into what everyone wanted and expected from Gyaru. It felt safe to try and grow with my fellow members.
"... I miss how it used to be all about hair make up and attitude…oh and just having kick ass clothes in general no matter what the brand is."- Koko (This quote has had me very intrigued since Koko said it.)
I mean, if we were just a fan club, why not come out and say it? Why not treat us like one and give us exclusive items. Quite a few of us wanted those fans! I wanted to see a Black Diamond mook with all of the members in it, with their hair done and makeup tutorials. Heck, I just wanted a A/W Foxy Egg!
Boy, do I feel like an idiot. I mean, I should have known something was up when no one from Love Gals (Ashley and Shiena's Circle) was apart of Black Diamond. I mean, they are apart of the Gal Culture, why wouldn't they be apart of it?
Then... I remembered that Ashley posted a news link about it. And I had actually decided to ignore it.
"Let's try this out," I said, "this is a big step for gaijin gyaru recognition."
Did you ever feel like you were getting the shit kicked out of you, and when you look behind to see who's doing it and realize it's your own damn foot? Yeah, that's how I feel right now.
So, I'm sitting here on my laptop, looking at the chat box that I'm sharing a conversation with Danyy. I ask her, "what should we do now?"
I mean, this is just a slap in the face, and people who don't get along were trying to put their differences aside to get along and help improve others.
I want to say so much more. Honestly I do, but this is enough.
