MICKEY




T-shirt and sunglasses Romwe, white maxi skirt from my mom, boots Dr. Martens, jewelry KappAhl, yin yang bindi from Indian Bazaar

I don't use maxi skirts so much but I like this white one that I got from my mother.

What do you think of using bindis?

  8. Kun nyt kysyit noista bindeistä, niin mun mielestä näyttää ihan hyvältä, mutta itse en kyllä ikinä käyttäisi. Jos on yhtään lukenut cultural appropriationista niiden ihmisten näkulmasta, joiden kulttuuria näillä asioilla loukataan, niin tuntuu ihan hirveeltä. Hirveetä, että länkkärit kaupallistaa asioita, joilla on kulttuureissa tärkeä hengellinen merkitys..Tää oli mun mielestä aika hyvin kirjotettu:

    "Who the hell said this was “borrowing” and not stealing?? Some other white girl hippie who introduced you to this exotic and quirky way to express yourself? It is in fact stealing from my culture, which is why Indian women rarely wear bindis anymore. Western culture invaded and at first, bindis were used by English colonizers to single out, demean, and dehumanize Indian women. Then, Gwen Stefani or whoever decided they were a cute way to show how in tune with her spirituality she was, and this bindi trend BLEW UP. And in India, all of a sudden, bindis were being produced simply to be novelty items for Western (primarily white) girls who wanted to be “unique” or “explore themselves.” (Yet another way to show how white privilege exists in all corners of the globe.) In this way, the West’s cultural appropriation of the bindi DESTROYED all meaning behind something that once meant so much to my culture. If I wear a bindi, people will most likely think that I am wearing it to make a statement, or to “express myself” or some such bullshit because Western appropriation has erased the meaning of the bindi."

    En siis mitenkään sun kimppuun oo tässä hyökkäämässä, kommentoin nyt kun satuit kysymään. Omasta mielestäni aika loukkaavaa käyttää esimerkiksi just noita bindejä, mutta jokainen tavallaan.
