Comedian Lee Se Young, who is being investigated for sexual harassment, appeared unedited on a KBS2 show, making netizens upset.

Netizens expressed their anger against the show's decision. One person commented, "Poor Jung Joon Young," referring to how the singer had to drop out of his shows when he was charged with a sexual assault charge, which was later dropped. Another netizen commented, "How can I watch the show with someone like that?" One person pointed out that when male celebrities get accused of something like this, they have to immediately drop out of shows, saying, "This is reverse sexism."

reverse sexism doesn't exist, just as reverse racism doesn't

nah I don't think KBS is at fault here since she's not yet to be convicted as guilty by the police (the investigation is still ongoing). Jung Joonyoung didn't get edited out either when the case was still investigated. He just chose to temporarily leave the shows because he had the decency to.

I don't really understand the concept of being edited out when a celeb does something, could someone please explain to me?

nami_chan Saturday, December 3, 2016

I'm surprised she wasn't edited out of the show after that sexual harassment controversy :/

I'm confused, what in the world is *reverse sexism?*

CamelKnight bangeryun94 Saturday, December 3, 2016

Sexism is where men treat women as sex-objects instead of real persons. Reverse sexism is, apparently, the reverse of that so women treating men as objects instead of a real person. You know, what Lee Se Young did to all those male idols.

circadianite CamelKnight Saturday, December 3, 2016

Actually, sexism is when one gender discriminates against another. It doesn't matter which is which. Reverse sexism is not a thing.

CamelKnight circadianite Saturday, December 3, 2016

You're correct, but considering sexism is mostly thought of as men discriminating women, I do get why they'd name it "reverse sexism". However wrong it might be (the combination of words and the act, by the way).

circadianite CamelKnight Saturday, December 3, 2016

We shouldn't call it that, though, because it perpetuates the myth that women can't be sexist against men, when they can.

CamelKnight circadianite Saturday, December 3, 2016

I would disagree on that though. The majority of people already think men can't be sexually assaulted. There are tons of stories around of men who have encountered nothing but laughter and ridicule when they tried to open up about a very concerning and intmidating matter. They are met with disbelief at best, which, to me, makes it all more apparent that there should be a diversity in the term "sexism" to point out that men, too, suffer from this. All though I would never go as far as stating that men encounter these things equally often as women, I do think it's a severly underrated subject. Mucho hush hush. If we need a new term for that, than I'm all for it.

circadianite CamelKnight Saturday, December 3, 2016

You're misunderstanding. All that stuff is my exact point. Calling it "reverse" sexism implies that "real" sexism is a thing men do to women, and this is just when it sometimes happens the other way. It implies it's not the norm, it's not as common. It makes it seem like less of an issue.

CamelKnight circadianite Saturday, December 3, 2016

Ah, I did indeed misunderstand. Thanks for clearing that up :)

one word 'SHAMELESS'

kddicted Friday, December 2, 2016

ugh this controversy

DirronDeHumen Friday, December 2, 2016

did people ever think the ep was recorded before the incident?

circadianite DirronDeHumen Friday, December 2, 2016

Did even you read the article? They're saying she should have been edited out.

2fat circadianite Friday, December 2, 2016

Which is ridiculous.

circadianite 2fat Friday, December 2, 2016

And yet they do it to male celebrities all the time.

Flowercrew 2fat Saturday, December 3, 2016

Not ridiculous. They did it to No Hong Chul and Gil on Infinity Challenge for drunk driving. lSY's was sexual harassment.

2fat Flowercrew Saturday, December 3, 2016

So just because that do that stupid editing for others doesn't mean it's a good practice. It's ridiculous and costs the production money. People's eyes won't fall out just because they see someone they don't like on a stupid television show.

circadianite 2fat Saturday, December 3, 2016

It's not ridiculous, it's a matter of respect for the victims.

2fat circadianite Saturday, December 3, 2016

Really. I rarely see the "victim" complaining when these things happen. Oh yeah and these particular victims never complained. This is all netizen butthurt witch hunting.

Can easily understand netizen anger.
