Tumblr: spreading the world apart, one group at a time.
For the record, I can read the Japanese text on the comments and yes, the translations are accurate.
As far as Cultural Appropriation goes, go fuck yourself. As long as you’re not wearing the bindi/turban/saree/whateverfucktraditionaldress you may find to disgrace it, it’s okay. You should be able to wear whatever you want. It’s really a way to appreciate the culture.
It’s not cultural appropriation. It’s cultural appreciation. My bf has taught himself both Spanish and Japanese. (He’s Irish/German.) People from both cultures have shown him nothing but surprise and happiness that he can talk to them in their native language. He works in retail, and it makes his customers feel more comfortable and respected when someone works hard to learn their language, customs, and cultures.
This is my new favorite post
bisexual people aren’t more likely to cheat in relationships but we are more likely to cheat at cards, while lesbians are most likely to cheat at jenga, and genderqueer people often cheat at mario kart
how the fuck do you cheat at jenga
ask a lesbian
this is never not funny
Accurate. I would punch the controller out of my cousins’ hands when we played Mario Kart. Especially if I was losing.
It’s that time again, it’s that time again!! Hallelujah, lawd almighty, it’s that time ageein!

tumblr we are not fucking doing this right now take a day off
if you think you are a good person for shitting on people who are grieving the death of someone they looked up to then you are very mistaken and an asshole
Okay so flame away, but this is an example of racism against white people.
"White people" are sad because "a white dude" died
"Black people and white people" are sad because "a dude" died
SOME PEOPLE (READ: BLACKTAVISTS) need to pull their heads outta their asses and realize, hey, these people aren’t their ancestors, and probably don’t think about me like I’m thinking about white people. Because y’know why? I didn’t pick my race. And you know what? Neither did you. Or Robin Williams.
So gtfo. I’m tired of being shamed for being white.
Hey, sorry, my message box doesn’t tell me when I get messages? (fuckin’ weird)
And I’m doing pretty good!
lol if you want to know more just send me an ask!
RISE AND SHINE. GIVE ME MILLET.
Pleeeaase start using this website, https://www.ecosia.org, it’s basically a search engine that plants trees every time you use it, how beautiful is that? It’s pretty much the same as google only like a million times more ethical- 80% of their income goes toward tree planting programs in Brazil. It’s totally free and there’s an app available for IOS too, so you really don’t have an excuse… Now go and help the environment my darlings!

Okay, okay calm down, people.
While you are all losing your mind over ‘cultural appropriation” of an Indian dress, nobody actually consulted THE INDIANS.
In our country, if a foreigner wears an Indian saree, we actually appreciate it. It shows that the foreigner respects us enough to try our clothes. And the saree, mind you, is not a religious thing. Hindus can wear sarees, Muslims can wear sarees, Sikh’s can wear sarees, Jain’s can wear sarees and so on.
Like Americans have short dresses, compare that with sarees. Going to a party? Saree. Going to temple? Saree, and so on.
Some Indians wear it, some don’t. Some hate it and think its oppressing, some love embracing the unique style.
Point is, don’t hate on her for wearing this. Don’t hate on anyone for wearing sarees or any variations of sarees. We love to see others embracing our culture. Why do you think we open our gates to allow everyone to practice yoga and fins spiritual meaning?
Culture is not meant to be kept within four walls, it should be spread.
I did not know this. That is really interesting to find out. Thanks for the information.
