pleuvonics-deactivated20120429 asked: i follow snuffboxisdead because she's run a great blog and i find myself agreeing with her a lot. Cultural appropriation is ridiculous. It happens to my heritage every March 17. I thought you'd have something insightful to say about it, but you're actually a total asshole with a lame blog. And it's not even a funny kind of asshole. It's just the run of the mill internet...
saschaeatsteeth-deactivated2012 asked: Yeah that's the weird part, they're not my friend, I don't even know who that person is and I was like YO DON'T DRAG ME INTO YOUR FAIL WTF? Saying that being flippant online is "as obnoxious as" racism/appropriation=LOL
aundressa-deactivated20120123 asked: I for one am glad you don't take yourself seriously. If you spent hours typing out long responses for people who want to know if their mohawks are appropriating another culture, they'd be like TL;DR LOL and white folks will be like YOU TAKE YRSELF TOO SRSLY REAL LIFE ISN'T LIEK THAT. You can't end CA by yelling at people ON THE INTERNET so you might as well have some fucking...

Anonymous asked: Do you think a white person getting scarification is cultural appropriation?I really like how it looks, but I don't want to be an asshat. I have no intentions of getting anything for the purpose of looking "exotic" or any fucked up reason like that, and I the design wouldn't be one of importance to any cultures but is the act itself appropriative? Sorry if I came off as an...
Anonymous asked: question- would painting my face as a sugar skull for a Halloween party be cultural appropriation if i was Latina? i'm Columbian instead of Mexican, but i'm still kinda iffy.
how-joan-of-arc-felt asked: Okay I was scrolling through this blog and is awesomeness and read that you were given bindis by your friends. So its okay to wear bindis? But its not okay to wear dream catcher shirts or well, I can't think of examples. ? Because I'm guessing when you wore than bindis you went like "herderrrppp im indian now (like how others pretend to be native with their faceaint and HOW"...
twigfingers asked: This isn't entirely about cultural appropriation, but I want to tell you anyway because I think you would care. My high school football team recently played against a team called The Tribe, and for the pep rally our cheerleaders decorated a HUGE poser that read "TP The Tribe" and it had a teepee covered in toilet paper and a sad looking cartoon Native American tied up in it as well....
pleuvonics-deactivated20120429 asked: I got referred to this blog by snuffboxisdead and i was excited to see what you had but yeah, bummer. You're as obnoxious as the individuals appropriating other cultures. Lame. Pages and pages of hipsters with head dresses and you never answering anyone's questions. Anyway, please respond to me in "ironic" internet speak and keep avoiding any personal responsibility for...

Anonymous asked: re: the person who doesn't want to let go of the word gyp. WTF is "a hypothetical Roma"? do they only get hypothetically thrown out of countries by hypothetical police? do they only get hypothetically targeted for hypothetical fucking sterilization?

Anonymous asked: I'm going to dress up like an Indian and have sex with a European. As he ejaculates on my face, I'll think of your blog!
Anonymous asked: While I find the concept of fighting cultural appropriation admirable, you personally are incredibly annoying and repulsive. I fail to see how acting in such a manner will help your cause, since it will make some (such as myself) unfollow you. Being racist does not help your cause either, seeing as the blog is about cultural sensitivity - perhaps you should practise what you preach for once.

Anonymous asked: There's a story about my high school and how we got our mascot... They asked the first class of art students what the mascot should be, they said "A warrior, like Conan the Barbarian." But the principle said, "Hmmm, like a Native American warrior? That's brilliant!" But everyone was pissed, because he never realized that Conan was in fact, not Native American, but...

momiwillcutyou-deactivated20110 asked: Nobody ever believes me when I say I'm Spanish because I'm 100% white. Does that mean I can't wear Spanish clothes without getting made fun of on here? Because I find that there are people of varying skin colors in every country and it's more than a bit offensive that any one person feels entitled to make image-based judgments on what's acceptable for anyone to wear.
Anonymous asked: How do you know the person who created or is wearing that "Find your inner native" shirt isn't native? i, for one, am native. I am 1/2 native. However I look as irish as can be. People judge me all the time for things I put into my life and they don't think I really feel for and understand the history of whatever it is I might be saying/wearing/doing.

cleanteeth asked: I am mixed race and it would be such an insult to my heritage to appear on this blog under the FALSE assumption that I wasn't of a certain culture because of how I looked. Just because somebody is white and looks unassuming and does wear something from the far east, doesn't mean they're trying to insult. This whole blog is based on assumptions in terms of appearance.

Anonymous asked: Given that it's not even clear 'gyp' comes from 'gypsy' (the Oxford English Dictionary lists 'gee-up' and 'gippo' in the sense of 'short jacket' as possible alternate derivations), it seems inappropriate to castigate someone for causing hypothetical offense to a hypothetical Roma by using it.
