Omfg Melody, I love you for pointing it out. If you ask me, she also does look pretty tanned. From all we know she could be multiracial. And what does it matter if a white girl wears a bindi? I think it looks pretty on her.

Because the brown people who invented bindi and wear it to express their culture are murdered, raped, denied jobs, spit on, attacked, ridiculed, etc. for it. Meanwhile, white women who wear bindi stripped of its cultural significance are hailed as “trendy” and even said to “wear it better”.

Like, look up the term “cultural appropriation” if you have time. Just because non-white jewelry looks good on white people (and that’s a rather subjective matter) doesn’t mean they should wear it.

As far as representation is concerned, I do hope you understand how off it is when a story refuses to include characters not up to Eurocentric standards but for a tokenistic handful, but does eagerly includes the inventions of the people left out.

the fact that someone could have no idea why it would be a ‘big deal’ for a non indian person to wear something important to their heritage says EVERYTHING I’ll ever need to know about you. This isn’t the 90s & Gwen Stefani - everyone should know definitely know better by now.

It’s funny, I just saw a discussion about race and cultural appropriation. It sounds like you guys have no idea that cultures can have similar things without ever having to mix. (As a kid I wore “hindis”. Gems on my third eye area. Yep. Then I saw that hindis were a thing and liked it even more.) 

Besides, this is almost as bad as twerking and wearing a kimono being “cultural appropriation”. 

Always loving the racism on tumblr. lmao

In America, we call them lifesavers. They can be chewy or hard candy.

my mom has been a cop for over 20 years and she is the one who constantly warns me about police aggression and young male cops and told me that if you’re ever alone on a rural road and a cop throws their lights on to put on your four ways and drive to the next gas station before stopping because so many cops are scum and it’s not worth the chance of getting hurt. the fact that SHE feels the need to tell me this shit scares me to death

I think you should read this

Do you read your own sources before you hand them out or is being an ambiguous asshole a thing you’ll settle for?

The intro prargraph reads this:

A white girl wore a bindi at Coachella. And, then my social media feeds went berserk. Hashtagging the term “cultural appropriation” follows the outrage and seems to justify it at the same time. Except that it doesn’t.”

This means there’s people, multiple, who are upset by the aforementioned situation and consider it cultural appropriation. Like, I understand it’s convenient to pretend only the author matters, but it isn’t a thing you deserve a compliment for. Now, of course the author’s opinion is not to be dismissed, but here’s the thing. From her article, you know she on her own is okay with non-Hindu/non-desi wearing bindi and that a lot of others aren’t. You can choose to go with her opinion and be an asshole towards all those others, or you can play it safe and be an asshole to no one, because the author isn’t going to be bothered either way.

So, you’d prefer to an ambiguous asshole or just not an asshole at all?

As well, I’m guessing you googled “bindi cultural appropriation” and did a little dance when the first hit was the article you linked to. Did you scroll down, by any chance? Or was it convenient too to ignore all the other articles and links that disagree with the first hit? Like the one that addresses that article specifically and why it is not right? Heck, I wrote you three paragraphs, most of which topics not even touched on in the article you linked, and you think you have a comeback with that display of minimal effort? 

Hey deary, lemme share with you /my page of google/ oh, and this is front page. 

Now, why don’t we skip all that bullshit, and look up dictionary and basic definitions of the use for Hindis hm? 

You want the full, long answer? You have the link in the screenshot hun. Far as I can tell; it may be a religious symbol but most hindi girls (and people in general) use it for fashion themselves. Also, middle-eastern women… Can be white. Ykno where Jews originated from right?

Either way; most hindus from what I can gather view it as a fashion statement except when it comes to marriages.

i think its funny how there are some actors who played a role for so long that its almost impossible for me to see them as anything else

image

and then there are some actors who’ve done so many roles i dont even see them as actors anymore it’s just them as themselves in another movie

image

and then there are actors who you’re not quite sure what they really look like
