Indie idol confesses to her dark past [TRIGGERING: RAPE, SELF HARM, CHILD ABUSE/PEDO, SUICIDE]



An underaged female idol wrote a blog post recently about how she had been raped, also partook in underage drinking, smoking, money-borrowing, and compensation dating. She alleged, “I was forced into his car and then raped.”

This has caused quite a stir on the internet…

The idol in question is Miaan. On April 6th, she wrote a blog entry about what she had experienced thus far as an idol, and that blog entry has been the point of some heated discussions online about the state of the entertainment industry.

[TRIGGERING: RAPE, SELF HARM, CHILD ABUSE/PEDO, SUICIDE]

Miaan wrote about her upbringing, her loneliness, and her experiences in being the victim of bullying. In middle school, she committed self-harm by cutting her wrists because she felt life had no meaning. At the same time, her relationships with her friends also deteriorated.

After that, she fell in love with a host, and borrowed money for him under her name, and was forced to prostitute herself as a result. She suffered a mental breakdown, and she started looking for other means of income through cell-phone dating sites. In writing, the men promised to lend her the money, but in reality, she’d meet up with them and they’d have their way with her, going as far as raping her.

After such a shocking confession, her management agency fired her.

Yes, because if she's a prostitute, she's beyond redemption.

Bullshit.

Attitudes like yours are what keep women in the life and ultimately kill them.

1. She was forced into prostitution.
2. "Idol: A person or thing that is greatly admired, loved, or revered"
So, you're saying anyone forced into prostitution can never be greatly admired, loved or respected, huh??

Breaking in, but that doesn't make it any less of an issue for the agency, who signed her on because of a certain public image that she no longer embodies. I'd imagine this whole thing put the agency in a bad position because if they keep her, they're keeping a former prostitute as an idol and they will never get her into the mainstream (therefore making them money) with that elephant in the room. However, fire her and they're throwing away a girl who's... yeah, been forced into a lot of horrific things in her time and this whole thing is her putting her life back together.

I read the original entry as well and this firing just makes me wonder if it'll bring on a relapse, which scares me a little. I really hope she has a good support network in place that isn't related to the industry.

and was forced to prostitute herself as a result

she was a prostitute but forced to be one, it wasn't really her choice.

There is a legal problem. Compensation dating is actually illegal, so even though it`s not so uncommon and she was attacked, there may be a bit of a legal issue.
