i dunno if white people ever learned this in elementary school but

'sharing' is a mutual act, predicated on the idea that the person whose property (or culture, as it were) being shared doesn't object to the 'sharing'

'stealing' is when you take something that belongs to someone else and do…

Lo and behold Rihanna “stealing” and sexualizing the Muslim culture:

Cultures are not anybody’s personal property. Anybody has the right to take anything they want from a culture and enjoy it. White people cannot possibly “steal” any culture, because a culture is not anybody’s personal property. Furthermore, whites are not the only race who enjoys other cultures. Everybody does it. 

 

irrelevant opinions at 12 o clock!

Opinions I can’t argue against.

There, fixed for you. Stop appropriating the mayo culture. You don’t own it, scrub.

more like any energy spent on explaining concepts that are clearly beyond both your maturity level and capacity for critical thought would be wasted, as you’ve proven yourself in two sentences to be irreceptive to any opinion that challenges your own myopic purview of the world.

i’m not appropriating mayo culture, i’m using it exactly as it’s meant to be used. normally i wouldn’t bother reblogging that kind of ignorance, but my followers could use a laugh so thanks for weighing in! you’ve contributed literally fucking nothing to any conversation worth having. maybe try kindergarten again?

Oh please, spare me your verbal diarrhea. You don’t want to bother with somebody who disagrees with you, plain and simple. 

You are right, I don’t respond well to hypocrisy, nor do I accept thinly veiled bigotry under the guise of social justice. Your wall of ad hominem has been noted. Words - lots. Coherence - zero. Ad hominem - x1000. You do know how to type in complete sentences though.

'thinly veiled bigotry'? i think i'm pretty overt about my contempt for white people who have no boundaries or respect for anyone else's culture, actually. maybe learn what the words 'ad hominem' and 'thinly veiled' mean next time?

i’ve spent plenty of time debating this issue with racists and your response was a pretty textbook example of someone who isn’t worth the time or effort to engage seriously with.

"prochoice? well of course you’d say that you’re a PLUMBER!" == ad hominem

pointing out behavior and attitudes demonstrated right on a post isn’t ad hominem, it’s facts, and you’ve demonstrated entitlement and racism perfectly.

blocked for tedium and uncreativity, try coming back with something stale-ass mayo hasn’t tried countless times before

Your bottled water habit is sucking California dry

If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.

Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.

Turn on the tap instead Follow micdotcom

EVERYONE PLEASE AT LEAST TAKE A QUICK SECOND TO LOOK AT THIS

BECAUSE IT IS EFFECTING THE EXACT AREA I LIVE IN

Lots of people believe bottled water is safer and cleaner than tap water, when in reality there’s no evidence proving such a thing.

Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!: Bottled Water segment, gives a very good and thorough summary of the bottled water culture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHx6BX3HZJc

You want better water? Buy a Zero filter. SRSLY. Stop buying bottled if possible. You need water with you? Get reusable acrylic or glass water bottles (wrapped in a silicon sleeve) and fill it up from your filter pitcher. SAVE MONEY, SAVE MY STATE

This is all incredibly important, some cities have as little as 60 -120 days left.  Try using a refillable water container, and if you’re a California resident, make sure to report water waste in public spaces.

Also, maybe take a second and sign the petition to stop a giant Slip n’ slide from being built in Los Angeles. Priorities.

this morning, police raided Greater St. Mark school/church in Ferguson, MO (formerly called St. Sebastian’s Parish).

community members had been using it as a safe space and staging area. police claim that the church is violating housing codes by sheltering protesters, even though the pastor has said it isn’t true.

please please please boost this. help these organizers recover the supplies they lost, and share just how fucking far these cops will sink to make the people of Ferguson suffer.

unamusedsloth:

Are we bad people for laughing at the mishaps of kids?

walkingmyownpath:

Okay Asian and Asian diaspora who are taking offense at Black people calling out the silence from Asians about Ferguson need to STFU and consider why we are collectively being called out. If you feel the need to point out how YOU as an individual reblogged x amount of…

Like, it’s totally okay if you’re not equipped to handle the issues of race and racism and colonialism and all the fuckery that follows from white supremacy and your (hopefully unintentional) place benefiting from it.

I respect your right to not have the spoons to handle…

IM LAUGHING SO HARD.

I drew a speed paint of an Amaluna photo I found yesterday and tagged the official cirque page on fb. I didn’t realise my friend tagged the other two artists who weren’t even the ones I drew, but their secondary artists and now I have two friend requests from cirque performers. One of them the guy I didn’t draw.
