You probably get versions of this message a lot but about 30% of your responses to asks irritate me and make me start tone policing and think of how much more 'useful' your responses would be if they were kind. THEN I stop and think about exactly WHY I feel that way about your responses, which is actually really effective in making me recognise they irritate me because I have privilege in those areas, which in turn helps me see the problematic areas in myself. Ty for making me a better person :)
Also, it helps you stop being shitty to people just because they don’t hate the time/energy/knowledge to rebuke your marginalizing bullshit!
Peoples’ lived experiences come first.
e.g. Is a trans person speaking about a trans issue? Take a seat. It’s not your work to do; it is not your place to enter the discourse and derail it.
We must always remember not to speak over marginalized people.
Lilo and Stitch presenting an accurate representation of Hawaiians perspective on luaus held by tourists.
#what’s sad about this is that this is actually what Hawaiians had to do when the western culture took over #a luau was a sacred practice #until the westerners took the concept and had the audacity to change it into a time to stuff your face with food and put on grass skirts and coconut bras and dance the hula #and when they had these events, they didn’t even let actual Hawaiian people in #so to make money to take care of themselves, the Hawaiians were hired to work in these disgraceful events to clean up after the tourists like slaves only to make less than a buck #so good job disney for doing your fucking research and educating these people #sadly, this still goes on even until today and it makes me sick
we’re going to look back at events like this when we’re older and be so embarrassed it was even an issue.
Sketchdump! lots of cute doodles from the last week :>
Can you be my inner spirit animal?
No because thats appropriative, but if you give me permission I’ll demonically possess your soul ~
it’s getting to that time of the year where everybody isn’t quite sure if they should be wearing coats or not like you’ll see some people walking around in t-shirts and others wearing coats and scarves like nobody is really sure if it’s actually getting cold out or not
