Why would you have a Dakota Rose fansite? She's an awful person. Just because you may think people "attack" her doesn't mean you're correct. Let's not forget all the horrible things she's done. How could you even be a fan of a racist? I'm sure it only has to do with her looks because her personality=shit. She's never done anything positive enough to make me think that she's an okay person.
Are you friends with Dakota? Because otherwise, I don’t see how you can say you know her with any authority. I don’t know her. I don’t know who she is. I’ve seen her respond to people very well. I’ve also seen her apologize for past bad behavior, as well as try to be a different person now. But even those things don’t mean I know her. I support her because I believe she is changing, that her apology is sincere, and that she said horrible things before but has grown up since then. I appreciate seeing someone grow, and I truly believe she is. That’s why I’m still a fan.
I freely admit that I don’t know her, though, and that I could be wrong. But I’d rather be wrong about thinking she’s changed and supporting that, then be wrong about her being the same person and be attacking her for it.
And I have seen people attack her. I’ve also seen people be respectful when they disagree with her or her actions. I know not everyone attacks her, but yes, some people do. And while she has said some terrible things in the past, I don’t think that I’m forgetting her doing something awful enough to warrant never being forgiven or allowed to change. But that’s just my opinion.
As the former owner of the fydakotarose blog here on Tumblr, I just want to say something. While I understand and sympathize with those who do get offended when their blogs are shut down, as mine was, I did not turn against Dakota or feel betrayed. Was I upset? Yes. But I didn’t and I don’t blame anyone. She (or her family) felt they should remove my posts. Tumblr agreed, so they were removed, and the blog was eventually deleted. It happens. Even though I was upset, I didn’t take it personally. And I still support Dakota as much as I ever did.
I don’t blame anyone for feeling differently, though. They have a right to feel however they feel. I just didn’t like the idea that I would be considered someone who didn’t support Dakota anymore. I do. That’s why I created another site for her, just not one that I can maintain as easily as I’d like.
Speaking of which, if anyone has any suggestions for a website that can be easily updated on a mobile phone (an iPhone, specifically), I would love to hear it. I’ve been looking but it’s hard to find the info without signing up and just trying the site out, and I don’t want to do that over and over again. I went with weebly.com because it was the second listing when you google free websites (afters webs.com, which I tried years ago and hated), but it hasn’t been as easy to use as I thought it would be. Their mobile app is next to useless to me. So I’d love some suggestions.
And that’s my two cents for today. Hope you’re all having a lovely day!
I'm completely against Dakota, but seeing your posts/answers (also on your old tumblr blog) I just want to say, that you seem to be incredibly lovely person! I like how you're answering in a very mature, nice way. You're the nicest Kota's fan I've ever seen! So, yeah, just wanted to say this ^ ^
Aw, thank you! That is so sweet. :D I honestly respect everyone involved in this, even if we disagree, and so comments like this make me really happy. I believe in being nice to everyone. And I do try to be mature, although I’m sure I fail sometimes. Still, thank you so, so much. This means a lot to me. :)
Also, I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to post this. Tumblr wasn’t sending me alert emails for some reason, and I don’t come here much now that I don’t post pictures as often, so I can only imagine how long this could have been sitting in my inbox. I’m sorry if it took forever for me to reply.
This was sent to my inbox—
I’d love to have a link to your dakota rose fansite! please post it! ^^ Shmankydinks~
Thank you, ask-adachi-hana! I’d be happy to give it to you. This is the link to my new site. It’s very much unfinished (even though I’ve been working on it for what feels like a long time. ;) ), and her newest pictures aren’t in the gallery yet, but enjoy! :D
And if anyone has any questions or comments, please feel free to send them my way. :) (And I hope this time I don’t get shut down, but I guess we’ll see.)
I’ve been working on a new website (for a long time now) to post Dakota’s pictures, and while it’s still unfinished, I thought I should say something just so no one thinks I’ve disappeared or given up. I liked running a fan site for her, despite the drama, and on another website I won’t even have to get caught up in that anymore, so yay! I can’t wait until it’s actually finished and I can show everyone.
If you’d like a peek, let me know and I’ll post the link. I’m not doing it now simply because it really isn’t finished yet; but since I finally got around to publishing it today, it is viewable if anyone wants to see what it looks like so far.
Annnnd now I go to rest, because I’m exhausted and sick. Lol. I hope everyone else is having a good weekend!
Since I always try to be polite, that hurts. I thought I was being nice…? So, I think I’m not even going to bother responding to anything else in this drama. No one really wants to have an honest, open dialogue. Possibly not even me deep down, since I’m coming off as aggressive when I don’t even mean to. :/ And considering some of the things said to me over these months, the constant implying that I’m stupid or ignorant, I think it’s better that I step back into my comfortable shadow. It’s less stressful there. Lol.
Well, I’ll just focus on getting my FYDakotaRose blog going again. Positivity is better than arguing any day. :)
I specifically asked about Dakota. They said they would release no specific personal info except that all participants, meaning everyone entirely involved, attended the school for adults and there was no underage drinking. It was 3 years ago, and there are age limits for when you can attend a school that specializes in this type of art. I would post the e-mail but I respect their wishes of it remaining confidential and for it not to be copied. However, you can send me something in my ask box, which would have been a good idea in the first place, send your e-mail and I will privately send you the e-mail.
I fail to see how any of that contradicts what I said. Refusing to release anyone’s info would mean that they can’t confirm or deny whether she actually was in the program, and as I stated before, since she’s not the one who *shot* the video for school why would she have to fit their regulations? When you make a video for a school project, you choose the participants, not the school, and nothing would require background participants to belong to the same school or even be of age.
I wouldn’t expect you to post a confidential email, and I don’t think you need to. And I didn’t send this as an ask because I wasn’t so much wanting your opinion as expressing my own and using your post as a jumping off point. Nor am I comfortable giving my email out, although thank you for the offer.
I don’t wish to get involved in the Kotakoti drama machine again (that’s one thing I don’t miss about my blog), but I just wanted to say my piece. That’s all.
ETA: Besides which, are you seriously telling me it’s more likely the Ostrengas lied to the Federal government to get Dakota’s passport than lied to a random school to get her into a video no one would ever see? If you really think they had to lie at all. Just a thought.
