❝ [Trigger Warning: Rape, murder, racism, violence] During the almost six decades that U.S. troops have been stationed in South Korea they have committed many crimes in the Korean communities (Ahn, n.d.). One group gathered crime reports and found that from 1945 to 1999, servicemen committed over 10,000 crimes (National Campaign for the Eradication of Crimes by U.S. Troops in South Korea, 1999). In 1992, the brutal rape and murder of Yoon Keum Yi, a prostitute, by a U.S. serviceman, generated public outrage about crimes committed by U.S. troops (Kim, 1997; Kirk, Cornell & Okazawa-Rey, 2000). More recent crimes include the stabbing murder of Si-Sun Li near a U.S. military base in 1998 and the beating death of a 31 year old bar waitress by two American soldiers in 2000. In both cases, the men said they got angry because the women refused to have sex with them (Associated Press, 1998; Associated Press, 2000).

The Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA), a security treaty, between the U.S. and Republic of Korea makes it difficult for Koreans to take legal action against U.S. troops, even when they have committed crimes (Moon, 1997). Created during the Cold War era, the U.S. was able to “negotiate separate and often unequal security treaties with each of its Asian allies,” providing few favorable provisions for countries like the Republic of Korea (Cornwell and Wells, 1999). While the Republic of Korea has some legal jurisdiction over crimes committed by U.S. troops, a clause in SOFA’s article 22 states that South Korea must give “sympathetic consideration” for any request made by the U.S. to waive its rights unless the case is considered of “particular importance” (Moon, 1997; “Activists intensify SOFA,” 2002). According to the National Campaign for the Eradication of Crime by U.S. Troops in Korea, the U.S. military is responsible for disciplining their troops, but frequently, when crimes are committed, the men are just moved to another post (Kirk & Okazawa-Rey; n.d.). In 1999, only 3.6 percent of all crimes committed by U.S. servicemen were brought to trial by the South Korean government (Young Koreans United, 2000).

In the climate of tolerance for crimes committed by U.S. troops, prostitution and trafficking for prostitution are among the most tolerated. ❞

Never in a million years would the U.S. tolerate this kind of abuse from a foreign power in a major city like New York, Miami or Los Angeles. Never. But that’s what they expect from the citizens of places like Seoul and Daegu.

more reasons to hate white men. They’d never pull this kind of shit in the states because they know they’ll get away with bullshit like this in east asia and believe asian women are submissive enough not to say anything.

Stiles may have a hot girlfriend, but you don’t abandon your best friend like that.

how did he abandon lydia when he assumed she was hosting a party upstairs it’s not like he has ‘lydia senses’ and his lydia senses tingle when he senses that lydia is having a breakdown

I get that, but the thing is that for the entire series, he has always been there for Lydia, and suddenly when he gets some hot girlfriend, it’s like he shuts out Lydia. 

oh so now that stiles has gotten over the fact that lydia doesn’t like him and he’s finally found someone he’s interested in who actually reciprocates the feelings, he’s still supposed to have lydia still as a priority instead of worry about his actual girlfriend on a full moon when she’s vulnerable and needs him? does stiles owe lydia his attention at all times? scott and kira are lydia’s friends but they were out making out while she was freaking out. did they shut her out? kira goes and checks on lydia eventually. yall act like lydia can’t do anything on her own like stiles has to protect her and think about her and love her at all times like god good that’s totally degrading that a female character can’t have the same boy fawning over her at all times or else she’s a mess. and its like stiles isn’t allowed to have a life without lydia in it. get over urself
