sillysarita asked: You're an arrogant idiot if you think all those notes/reblogs were republishing YOUR opinion and not other's, pointing out your ignorance! I hope another stubborn cunt like you gets offended by what you're wearing, to understand what you're preaching
I read through and responded to majority of the culturally insensitive reblogs who were pointing out THEIR OWN ignorance. So yes, I can see where the support does and does not lie. The amount of baseless negativity was so negligible it was easy to do that.
If you can’t comprehend that cultural appropriation, sexualization, and exotification DOES IN FACT HARMFULLY AFFECT PEOPLE OF OTHER RACES/CULTURES AND THUS IS A FORM OF RACISM, you’re the one who’s the arrogant idiot. Please join the rest of the sheep and continue on enjoying your life of invalidating the feelings of oppressed people everywhere.
You still don’t understand, you are just judging people by what they are wearing. You say that cultural sharing is good if the people are informed about the culture and its meaning and history..well how the fuck do you know that that person or celebrity you are pointing at and calling a racist hadn’t got s one connection to that culture or even has founded them selves on learning everything about that culture in their spare time, as an interest. THIS is exactly what makes you a judgemental over opinionated test. I hope by any chance you font ANY piercing or wear follow shoes or fake tan or have a tattoo or wear anything too brightly coloured or animal print or tweed because these are all from cultural background that don’t fit you. What you preach makes you a hypocrite.
The happier you are in yourself the less you are bothered or threatened by what others meaningless things they do, so how about maybe next time you judge someone based on a minimal thing you look in the mirror to see where the problem is.
No, I perfectly understand white privilege and celebrity privilege; which is all you’re illustrating with the points you keep trying to make. Whereas you don’t understand the differences between appropriation and exchange and are not willing to learn about it. Cultural SHARING is just that, SHARING between cultures, not you TAKING what you like from it. Does that show a level of MUTUAL understanding and respect? NO. If you truly had an invested interest in a culture, you would know there are boundaries to be observed, and you would respect them. But by all means, go ahead and do as you wish! Everyone is entitled to enjoying other cultures on their own terms. If you believe you are being respectful and appreciative, that’s fine! Just don’t be surprised when people of that culture call you out on it.
So, the next time you judge someone based on what you personally think is just a “minimal issue,” why don’t you look in the mirror to see where the problem is?

New York can be an amazing place. Today I saw an adorable little dog walking by itself down the street. I was alone, and I said out loud, “Doggy, heehee.” I chased after it so I could pet it, and when I got close I saw it was a black plastic bag. New York can be a sad place.
