Amber addresses the discrimination on how a female should look

As a female artist who is known for her tomboy style, Amber recently spoke out once again on the discrimination on her Twitter.

On April 20th, Amber tweeted, “‘So, when are you gonna be a girl?’ Umm… I am a girl. A girl can be who she wants. I’m just saying. Let’s be a lil more open minded here.”

She continues with, “You can’t ignore discrimination, you need to fix it.”

It isn’t the first time Amber has addressed the issue. As a member from an idol girl group, Amber does not conform to the usual image that is expected of a female idol. While she has received a lot of love, she has also gained a lot of criticism as well since her debut with f(x).

In July 2015, she wrote a lengthy post on her Instagram, writing, “I never want to be forceful but there comes a time where I need to put my foot down on something I strongly believe in. Due to recent events, I want to address something: I’ve been a tomboy pretty much all my life and honestly, to put it short, it really sucks sometimes. Haters can and will hate, but insulting me in front my face is totally [a] different thing. I personally believe girls and boys are not limited to one specific look. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. We are all different. If we all sang the same melody how can there be harmony? Don’t judge someone just because they’re different. Hopefully, we can all grow to respect each other’s differences.

I’m always trying to stay positive and happy. I love my life, my work, and the people who are constantly supporting me. I am always thankful because I know I can’t be here on my own strength. With every mistake, I analyze my fault and then try to better myself. I know I can’t be perfect, but I will always try to be my best. In regards to that, I want thank everyone again for constantly encouraging me and believing in me.

To put it simply, love and help one another. And for people who are struggling, always be yourself. Being true and real to who you are is the biggest thing you can do for yourself. Love life, work hard, and chase your dreams.

Thank you again.”
