"When did I say I was?" When you completely dismiss the opinions of other Indians because their opinion isn't in lock-step with yours. "and white people are wearing like it is nothing." So despite thousands of years of existence, and despite surviving many years of colonization, all of Indian culture is going to die because Coachella Barbie #500 wore a bindi. Alrighty then.

When did I say Indian culture would not survive? WHEN. What does wearing the bindi have to do with survival? Like did you get this from your ass?

ITS FUCKING IGNORANT. WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND THIS?

Bindis don’t belong to fucking white girls who want to be cool and hipster. My culture is not something you can take off and on. Wearing bindis, shirts with Hindu gods/goddesses is not something you wear because you want “rebel against your parents. White people are taking the bindi out of context for fashion. Why does it have to be so hard to understand?

"Why can’t white people just accept that they made a mistake?"

Christ on a bike, it's like you think the culture is going to die out because Brittany from San Francisco wore one once; if Indian culture can survive what it's survived (including GODDAMN MASS COLONIZATION) , then it can damn-fucking-well survive some basic blonde hipster bitch playing dress-up.

Who died and made you supreme ruler of right and wrong?

Weren’t you saying just because one user says something doesn’t equate to everything so why is your opinion any more valid because you’re one user.

Fuck , my freind Surabhi from middle school whose family was ACTUALLY from India gave me a bunch of Bindhis to wear for fun , she told me it doesn’t matter and that anyone can wear them , it just represents your third eye chakra point . Can everyone just calm the fuck down about this?  and its not “all of the sudden” people are wearing these. Just reblogged a photo of Gwen Stefani in the early 90’s wearing one today. Who cares? I think if you want to wear something wear it. It’s not as bad as people who choose to get very specific tribal tattoos who are not even from that part of the world and don’t know what they mean to that culture. Let’s all get pissed off about that. 

I don’t give a fuck what your friend gave you. He/she is not an excuse to say “whatever”. And why the fuck does everyone keep questioning if I am Indian? Look at my selfie tag and tell me from which angle I look like a white person. TELL ME.

Guess what? Gwen Stefani is fucking ignorant too. So is Madonna, Selena Gomez and any other pop star who appropriates culture (Katy Perry, Lady Gaga) The list goes on.

I love it when teenagers make stupid posts on the internet because it gives me a justification to never take anything they say seriously

1. Assuming I am a teenager.

2. I am not being taken seriously because I am calling out a group problematic  white people?

"She is not a fucking god" And neither are you, sweetpea.

When did I say I was? The bindi is something that is bigger than me, and white people are wearing like it is nothing. It extremely disrespectful and offensive when they say it means nothing and that anybody can wear it.

Stop wearing Bindi or clothing brands with images of Hindu gods and goddesses as a “fashion statement” my culture isn’t some cool trend to participate in where you can simply lift culturally important symbols and transform them into mainstream fashion trends.

i just meant that if someone like cosmicallycosmopolitan said something about how theyre indian so that makes their opinion about bindis right and mine wrong how can i respect that their experiences are more valid while continuing to support other desi/hindu (sorry not sure all the groups for whom the bindi is significant which is why i said affected community) people

Can we stop bringing up that fucking tumblr user? She is not a fucking god, she is not a excuse to be racist. I sent her a message too, but she says she is on hiatus and idk how long that is for.

i love when white girls wear bindis because it gives me a good target to shoot them

So you wish to kill someone over a bindi? You seem totally sane.

If you don’t…

The bindi is not a religious symbol.

There is nothing sacred about a bindi, therefore there’s nothing wrong with someone wearing it.

Or do you not wear flip-flops since they were originally worn by Mexican natives?

OMMMGGGG
A BINDI DOES NOT HAVE RELIGIOUS SIGNIFICANCE ?????
HAHAHA HAHAHA

GOOGLE IS VERY EASY TO USE

cosmicallycosmopolitan would tell you otherwise on things concerning the bindi, since I don’t know, SHE’S INDIAN HERSELF and knows more about her own culture than you seem to and has many times explaining the use of the bindi and its significance. 

But since we’re at it and you think things made and worn of a certain culture aren’t allowed, then don’t wear any huaraches or flip-flops if you’re not Mexican, or you’ll be offending me and my people ♥

Yes let’s forget about the years of oppression and trust one fucking tumblr user. Fuck off. Im actually indian too btw

So what you’re saying is that your opinion matters more because you find it offensive, but any other Indian people that disagree with you should be disregarded because they don’t follow the “offended!” hivemind? It’s not only CC who happens to disagree with you. Plenty of Indian users have also expressed that they don’t mind the use of the bindi. If they don’t speak for all Indian people, neither do you, honey. 

I don’t give the fuck what they think. The ones I have spoken to don’t even know shit about their own culture or religion. They have been white-washed to please people like you. They don’t know their own religion, language, culture etc. Its quite depressing actually, but that’s a different topic aside from cultural appropriation.

IT IS FUCKING OFFENSIVE YOU MATTER WHERE YOU ARE FROM. You’re stealing a part of another culture and using it because of hipster shit. So get out of my post.

hi im white but i try to combine my feminism with just general intersectionality. but with issues such as cultural appropriation (for example when i say white people wearing bindis is not okay) i feel like even if im just supporting/repeating what the actual affected community thinks that im kind of invalidated. and obviously to some extent i am but do you know how i can defend my point (not necessarily myself) when an opponent brings up my race, especially if they are a member of said community

Get your white feminist ass out of here. By your “community” you mean you only support white girls and their racist shit and not women of color.

Bye.
