drbluejeanns asked: lol pretty much tho as a fan of shitty ice cream flavors i have to take umbrage at that remark
drbluejeanns asked: well yeah that too, I usually incorporate patriarchal hegemony with the leaders of whiteness, though patriarchy is not limited to white people obviously
drbluejeanns asked: Yeah seriously tho, white people are the fuckin worst. Also, whiteness is the most detrimental social construct in the world
Anonymous asked: "so did people just never learn that "reverse racism" is not a thing? nobody can be racist against white people, did no one ever tell them that? like you can't be sexist against men? words? words words words?" --> are you kidding me? racism/sexism are concepts that are not inextricably tied to historical experience/precedent.

filth-thezine asked: Why do people always feel like they have to defend whiteness? Why can't they see there's good and bad in it, just like in every stupid thing on god's green earth? And why don't they read your other posts about how it's not just white people who perpetuate cultural appropriation (though we do dominate in that field), about how cultural appropriation manifests anywhere that...

Anonymous asked: "i literally am the worldwide population of oppressed peoples" --> that is actually a disgusting and horrible form of satire and you should seriously delete this blog after making such a thoughtless remark. like actually.
Anonymous asked: No, i'd say a moron who starts a blog on cultural appropriation with no legitimate background on the subject who is racist and is falsely under the assumption that he/she/they can represent an the worldwide population of oppressed peoples is THE WORST
Anonymous asked: You're pathetic and if you truly care about educating people on cultural appropriation you should provide scholarly sources/articles on the subject and stop pulling bullshit out of your ass.
Anonymous asked: on a sensitive and deeply significant topic that you are in no position to be instructing people on. It seems as though your personal experience with cultural appropriation has engendered a skewed understanding of race relations in your mind. whether you'd like to accept it or not, your answers to peoples questions reveals that you yourself areracist. you obviously recognize a fundamental...
Anonymous asked: THAT'S THE PROBLEM. To use the word "white" as a referent has significant implications and only reveals your misunderstanding of history, race relations, everything... Your "referent" overlooks the HUGE NUMBER of people with white skin who historically DID NOT practice colonialism (as well as non-western groups who WERE imperialistic i.e. japan). Also, "acceptable...
Anonymous asked: the word "white" is not synonymous with the privileged, hegemonic powers that exploitatively colonized territories worldwide. Many groups share the same skin pigment as the members of colonial powers but to use the word "white" interchangeably with "imperial, hegemonic powers who happen to have white skin" in historically irresponsible and facilitates unhealthy...

Anonymous asked: Is there a difference in appropiation betweeen a white person that gets salon dreads vs one that just doesn't brush their hair? Like the former could be trying to imitate poc but the latter is something that happens to everyone that doesnt groom their hair much
Anonymous asked: Ok serious question: Is it appropiation for a white person to mimic the style of white group that hasn't always been considered white or have been considered more marginal when compared to other whites? Like I'm asking about a non-Slav wearing Slavic style clothing or a hipster that imitates the style of Appalachian mountain people.

Anonymous asked: i wonder if in a u.s.-american context muslims could generally be considered as p.o.c. as they are clearly discriminated against and if so if that meant that conversion to islam (which islam on principal considers as possible for everyone no matter what heritage) would somehow "un-White" White people. do you have an opinion on this?
smaashthemac asked: Your blog used to be really wonderful... people would ask real questions, and you would respond with meaningful, smart, well thought out answers. Now it's a bit of a joke. When you respond the way you have been... with your one word or sentence answers, often really offensive... it's really hard to take your previous, intelligent resoonses seriously. Not that the questions are any...

Anonymous asked: First off, I love your blog. A very good friend of mine who was Indian actually died about 2 weeks ago and I haven't really known how to deal with it. She was always very proud of her Hindu culture and donned beautiful bindis, some more decorative and some more traditional. Regardless, she always looked awesome. Following her death, I've felt compelled to wear a bindi of my own in her...

Anonymous asked: My friend (we are both white) hand made a dream catcher for me for my birthday. It made me super uncomfortable because, on one hand, there's obviously some serious cultural appropriation going on there. On the other hand, she went out of her way to make me a gift and I really don't think she knew what she was doing. I didn't want to be a bitch or hurt her feelings by not accepting...
