A fan recently e-mailed me a confession of what it’s like to be an EXO fan boy.
He would like to be kept anonymous, but his story really speaks out about the woes of being a fan boy for EXO (or pretty much any boy group).
To be honest, I think it’s really silly how guys have to hide the fact that they like boy groups in K-Pop.
It’s pretty unfair, especially since us girls can like both girl groups and guy groups without being judged or called names.
Here’s his confession:
“Hi. First things first, I’m a guy, yes I’m a fanboy of EXO, but please, don’t get me wrong, I’m straight.
I never doubted my sexuality just because I’m a fanboy of EXO. Most people misjudge us as gays because we admire idols of the same gender, but I wanna ask this?
“Is there a law that says if you idolize a person or a group of the same gender you’ll be automatically called homosexual?”
We, fanboys, are here because we appreciate EXO’s dancing skills, singing skills, and their ability to make people laugh because of their undoubted bright and charismatic personalities.
I’m in a midst of dilemma now. Only few of my friends know that I’m an EXO fanboy. I’m frightened by the fact that I’ll get misjudged and rumors might spread, hence; I’ll get degraded and I’ll have to explain myself over an issue that shouldn’t be there to begin with.
There came a time that I was about to delete my EXO videos and stop idolizing them, but then I consulted some of my friends and good thing because they really understood me. They even boosted my self-esteem.
This issue over being misjudged had a great impact on my personal life. It really made me depressed at one point that I can’t even eat any kind of food, and I became seemingly quiet when I’m around or when I’m surrounded by people. I just want to know others’ opinions about this matter. Thank you and I hope this confession of mine will be posted! “
Well I’m glad that you shared that post with all of us, and I’m sure that many, if not all, of us EXOtics support you! We’re glad to have more fan boys on our team!
If any of you other EXOtics have a confession or something you’d like to share with the rest of us, feel free to send me an e-mail at [email protected]!
