I’m actually going to post this.
Watch Dear White Hipsters: My Culture Is Not A Trend
Here’s my question…so white American/European people can’t appropriate cultures but POC that are American/European can? So…you can have a septum piercing because you black even though you don’t come from one of the tribes that originated it? You can’t be considered an appropriator for that? How does that even make sense. Not all black people are from the Masai tribe, but they can wear what they please without being called a cultural appropriator. That’s the thing…culture doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with skin color. So if an Asian American is walking around with a stretched labret, aren’t they appropriating a culture not their own? The answer you’re looking for is yes.
Instead of calling white people honkies or accusing them of bullshit you can literally accuse ANYONE in this day and age of…why don’t you think about what you’re actually saying. Did you know many cultures glean and take things from each other and what once meant something can gain a WHOLE different meaning; not even stripping the original meaning but gaining a new one as well. Multiculturalism is awesome. Changing your body to become the person you want to be on the inside AND outside (which is what body modification IS) is awesome. Shaming people for learning about other cultures and wanting to participate in a respectful and honorable way…not so awesome.
Chai has been doing a lot of earlobereconstructions lately.
This one was special! This was a reconstructed lobe that was performed by a PLASTIC SURGEON in the Stockholm area. He was satisfied with just removing the fistula and stitching it up. What do you think?
And just like that, all my hair was gone.
