"Natives" on Tumblr are equal to "true facts" in the media. You can’t believe half the shit and the other half is only half true. I saw a “two-spirit” post today which was supposedly a belief of the Cherokee people. Bullshit. It’s about as true as the “Ten Native American Commandments”. Just because you read up on it on the internet doesn’t mean it’s true people.
My G-MA IS LAUGHIN’ AT YOUR PRETENDIAN ASSES.
"I would prefer to wear my moccasins on a daily basis. But everytime that I do, someone clever has to call me Pocahontas. Hahaha yea, haven’t heard that one a million times."
THANK YOU, ANONYMOUS.
"Why don’t you make a blog about what REAL native culture is instead of being so hateful?"
"WELP, I don’t have time for that shit." Nerrr.
Ah, and yet you have time to cruise native tags, post your links and make snarky comments to appropriating, dipshit hipsters and give them their desperate need for attention. Because that’s what it is and negative attention is still attention. Lol. Right, makes total sense. Great concept, legit reasoning and total right to be offended at these dumbass white girls making native cultures some fashion trend. Buuut here’s the thing..
Just a warning. See you around.
fall1996: This girl started arguing with me because I posted a status on fb about people wearing tacky Native American costumes. She basically believes that cultural appropriation, the regulation of a heritage, and ignorance is okay. She said I make the world a crappier place for being judgmental... is it just me, or is making a trend out of living, breathing, loving human beings really fucked up? I think you would get it more than her. But idk. I hate cultural appropriation.
It’s a typical reverse-racism bullshit story. You call them out and they feel cornered so they point their finger at you saying YOU’RE the one that’s wrong so that they can continue their racist douchery. And the sad part of it is, the ignorant ones (for the most part) are only alllll into the “native fashion” and headdresses because it’s a trend now. As sad as that is and hard as it is to fathom why. You know, just white people continuing the dampening of the native culture and saying it’s okay just so they can try to impress a bunch of people that they don’t even really like. White people are notorious for this shit. What kills me is that the only reason this headdress trend has popped up is because of ignorant celebs and…Tumblr, honestly. They see someone with a headdress and so they’re like, “That’s so COOL, I MUST HAVE ONE NOW TO BE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE.” Fucking mindless drones. Sorry, I just have no respect for people who knowingly and willingly do these things just to hop on a bandwagon. Really makes me fear for the human race as a whole.
I understand you’re all young, lost and naive. I understand you don’t know who you are yet and therefore you all have to hop on bandwagons when they come around in order to feel “cool” and feel like you’re “in”, but the hipster headdresses are going too far. You have native after native after native telling you to please stop what you’re doing. That it’s wrong and offensive. That you’re dampening a culture that isn’t your own. I have seen so many arguments. From, “I’m so-and-so 1/1000000 native on my mom’s grandmothers cousin’s side.” Totally being overdramatic, but it matters about as much. Ladies, women did NOT wear war bonnets in the Plains tribes. And I’ve seen people who try and claim their “Cherokee” heritage as an excuse, but um, Cherokee did not wear war bonnets. So your argument is void. Trying to justify your reasonings for being able to wear a headdress at all is void. We all know you’re just wanting so BADLY to fit in with the cool kids who are doing it, and that’s what makes it even more wrong. You aren’t interested in the aspects of a headdress, and you’re not respecting them being sacred. You’re wearing then cause you’re a “Totally awesome hipster chick!” And you want lotsssssss of notes. Stop. Seriously. You guys aren’t fooling anyone. Stop degrading the native people’s culture, stop degrading the sacred headdress. It is NOT yours. Grow up. Stop being a child about it and juust apologize for being an ignorant twat and take it off, seriously. I got in trouble with the law because of bitches like you. And I assure you, other natives are getting sick of your shit too. It needs to stop and only you can stop it. If you blow it off and argue and cuss us out, you’re racist and there is absolutely no denying it at that point, because you are blatantly disrespecting a dying culture just so you can fit in with a bunch of other lost tweenies that have nothing better to do than think of ways to get attention. If that’s really the bandwagon you want to hop on then…honestly I just feel really sorry for you. And honestly, anyone who claims themselves a “hipster” is laughable. Hysterically laughable. That’s as bad as your SWAG and YOLO and other retarded shit you say that you’ve picked up. Headdresses are NOT yours for the taking, no matter how badly you want them to be, they are not. Just thought you should know how it really is.
