stray kids are getting a lot of hate now so i decided to make this little thread to show you guys that they're literal angels and don't deserve to be treated like that
#1 they always produce and writes music to help others to go through hard times
they're aware of mental issues and other global issues for example they wrote songs about insomnia, depression and anxiety. there's too many songs that bring up these kind of topics but i will give you a few examples:
#2 chan goes live once a week so we don’t feel alone and so that we have someone to talk to & just relate to
channie's room became a safe space for a lot of fans
#3 not only chan goes live to help stays but the others do too
- hyunjin once asked for stays problems to see if he could give us advice and help us. he even read out a stays concern in english and tried his best to reply in english
- jisung went live to help stays fall asleep by reading a story
- changbin and jisung taught stays how to rap during one of their vlives
- minho goes live to teach fans their choreographies
#4 they support lgbt
- they attended new york pride in 2018 after kcon and met some fans there
- felix and changbin wore nike shoes that were designed to celebrate pride month
- felix talked about his ideal type and included a girl and boy type
*cough* someone's whipped for changbin *cough*
- hyunjin talked about the song "1-800-273-8255" and said that he cried while watching the mv (the mv is about about lgbt and suicide)
#5 they respect everyone no matter what race or skin color
- chan showed us that he's educated on the n word (3racha - p.a.c.e)
- he even said on his recent vlive that no matter your age, race or skin color stray kids concert is a safe place for everyone
#6 they open their hearts to us and show us that they're humans too and even kpop idols sometimes feel lonely just like everyone else
changbin in his solo track "streelight" talked about going through problems without being able to tell someone and encouraged people to trust others and open up. he used the streetlight as a metaphor for how someone may look bright in the darkness but are actually sad and alone.
he even included 'the blue project' in his mv. the blue project is to help raise awareness on mental health, helping to encourage people to open up. the blue plaint was inspired by jayden whyte who painted a tree blue on his parents' farm as a joke. he took his life in november 2018. after his death the blue tree took on a new purpose: “spread the paint and spread the message that it’s OK to not be OK.”
#7 they donate to charities regularly
minho buys his jewelry from korean brand wing bling. the percentage of every purchase is donated to wwf. he helped polar bears and supported snow leopard conservation through that small gesture
he also supports a child living in africa through unicef but the child doesn’t know that he’s an idol. but he said that if the opportunity comes one day he would like to invite that child to watch him perform (arena homme interview with minho&hyunjin - april 2020)
#8 chan once said that he wants to get tattoos but he isn’t because he won’t be able to donate blood regularly
okay but imagine chan in tattoos. we wouldn't survive that 😳
#9 they ended gender stereotypes by wearing unique outfits
they wore crop tops many times and jeongin once said that pink is for boys
#10 they made a series where they give advices to viewers on various topics (honey-tips)
jisung talked about depression (ep.4)
“You don't know what happiness is if there's only light so depression needs at least once in order to know how to recover. The deeper the depression is, the stronger the light will be. The light is definitely there."
the list is already so long so i will finish it here. i hope this little thread will help you realize that all those hate comments aren't true. they're literal angels and no one deserve hate.
please reblog so more people can see it
[update] just to make it clear. by haters i did not mean black stays. i meant all those people who used that situation to spread hate on the boys and send them death threats. i believe that educating them is the right solution, not spreading hate :cc
i even saw people bringing back that 'daddy thing' and getting mad at chan, thinking that he's telling underage fans to call him that when first of all he didn't mean to turn it into sexual matter and secondly underage stays shouldn't even know that's a sexual thing 🤡
they really don't deserve that

STRAY KIDS in how they show to be into you through skinship
word count: 419
tags: skz scenario. skz imagines. fluff. soft. flirting. skinship.
Finds reasons to place hands over your shoulders for a few seconds. If you don't flinch he will know you are comfortable with that and occasionally hold your forearm and knee if you are seated next to each other.
Half-beside-you-half-behind-you is the way he stands next to you. He would make his way closer and keep arms crossed initially. If you don't look bothered about his proximity he would probably put his hands inside his pockets or on his waist so he lets his guard down for you. Your shoulder meets his torso if you move mindlessly.
Sits next to you placing his arm on the back of your seat so he shows he is around without touching you directly. When you are comfortable next to each other he wouldn't mind enough to move his leg if it touches yours (we all know how Changbin manspreads and he is the only man I don't hate for doing that)
He is expansive when he laughs so he would use it as an excuse to tilt into your direction. Shows you funny videos and memes on his phone so you can laugh together and attracts your attention towards him.
Mirror your actions without noticing because he gets focused on you when you speak. Sometimes he acts in a 14-year-old-boy-flirting mode like bothering intentionally or playing with your hair. Oooorrrr he manages to do funny things being charismatic and witty around you and if you find him funny he gets more confident.
He is really clingy and a cuddle bug with the ones he is familiar with but It takes him some effort to let himself go when he is next to his crush. He would try to take something out of your face or your hair. Will lay head on your shoulder when you get closer.
In the first moment he tends to be careful when it comes to physical contact since he does not want to be intrusive. He would approach you with a touch on your upper back. His hand lingers on your body once you two become more acquainted.
Is shy around the person he likes. If he gets to be beside you and his arm touches yours he will step back immediately. In case it happens again he will be more careless about it and just enjoy the chance to get in contact with you.
A/N: I don't owe any of these images. Loosely inspired by neoraso scenario of ateez skinships.
