i don’t think people are understanding my frustration when i see a non desi person wearing a bindi. it sparks not only anger but fear.
you people are taking something that is from someone elses culture with great significance and just yelling and saying ‘its not theirs’ but in fact it is. its their culture not yours. and now you have made it a fashion accessory. you have striped its value and culture from it forcefully. and when you are asked about it you want to shrug and look down at your feet like a small child and say that it was never theirs, its called fashion. bull shit is all that stabs and comes off my tongue when i hear this.
i get angry because its value will be now forgotten and changed because of you people, such as war bonnets have for native american indians, symbols in wiccan being miss used for your shitty pastel goth/soft grunge shit , aztec hindi and mayan gods being ink on bodies and apparel because it looks nice, and dreadlocks being able to be placed one anyone’s head.
I JUST DON’T GET IT! you people have your own culture, no? why don’t you take that, kill it, like you are willingly, and happily, doing to others? i’m tiered of having to restate why its wrong. i’m tired of having to be nice about it. i will point your shit out now.
you guys are getting pissed off at me cause i pointed someone out at the slutwalk for wearing one and sending me “hate” that i was harsh, rude, uncalled for, ect because of how i stated it.this is NOT the first time i have had to bring this shart up. if she is well informed enough about feminism to join the slutwalk why can’t she be well informed about this as well? she was most likely 19-mid twenties. she is no longer a child that should get a small little slap on the wrist and ignored for her to just do it again. i should have just called her out on it. Fuck you anons and people who had the guts to tell me off anon but i will not say sorry or feel guilty
