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.

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?

Don’t…

When you go out into the woods and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You appreciate it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree. The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying ‘You’re too this, or I’m too this.’ That judging mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.
