Book Quotes: Order of the Phoenix - Christmas on the Closed Ward
Neville looked around at the others, his expression defiant, as though daring them to laugh, but Harry did not think he’d ever found anything less funny in his life.

Globalisation: On Cultural Appropriation and Why it Isn't Always Bad

This post can also be subtitled “Why certain things aren’t problematic when certain races say them.”

(SN: This post is meant to be informative.)

As a black American woman (of caribbean descent) who has lived in three countries, nothing bothers me more than getting on tumblr to see things from my…

Your Fave Is Problematic: Misha Collins

babblingenochian:

If you’re too dense or sensitive to see when someone is joking, or if you just don’t appreciate misha’s form of humour, why not ignoring him instead of spreading your hate?

no one is hating on him at all with this post. sure, maybe people who dislike him contributed, but thats irrelevant. The point of that site is to educate people and maybe even the celebs themselves on how something that seems innocent can actually be very hurtful and offensive to others. It is not about being sensitive, it is about being aware that the world is changing and we need to think about what we say before we say it, now more than ever before.

I really like Misha Collins, I don’t believe he is homophobic or transphobic or what any of this implies, you know? i think he masks things with humor and doesn’t realize that he is disappointing his LGBTQ fans with his remarks. I acknowledge that these things have happened and i hope its something he can work on. I know he never means to hurt anyone but sometimes you need to sacrifice what sounds funny in your head for the sake of the people around you. Of course it hurts to see your favorite actors being linked to awful things, but we all need to wake up. Even really good people do bad things. It’s hard not to offend someone when you have an event that caters to so many people from all over the world, but you can still try. I don’t think this is about people being sensitive or butthurt at all. His innocent comments are making fun of who people are, huge parts of them.
try to put it into a way where you yourself would be hurt by a comment he made. If he made a fat comment that was negative or condescending, for example, i would be really upset about it.

A lot of the time its that they’re just like us. They weren’t exposed or they aren’t used to it or havent thought about it, or they don’t realize. The thing you need to know about this site is YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HATE THEM WHEN YOU SEE THEM ON THIS SITE.  You can share it with them write letters or emails telling them how you feel or why its wrong or why they shouldn’t do this in the future. It’s up to them to make the change but as a fan you can choose to tell them why it upset you.

So no, this is not bullying of misha, or anyone else. It’s making people aware that the people you put on a pedestal are not perfect, they do things that are wrong, they do cultural appropriating and racist things, and while we cant make them stop, we can tell them how it hurts us, as fans.
I find it painful to go through this site. For example, I love Amy Poehler. I think she is funny and delightful. But she does make mistakes, and when you see photoshoot of her in indian attire, its really disappointing. But i don’t hate her for it, i didn’t lose respect for her, and you don’t have to. We all start somewhere, its just harder in the limelight.
please don’t pass off their flaws and -phobic or -ism/-ist behaviors because if you do that you are silencing a lot of people. Acknowledge what they’ve done, consider why it is wrong, learn from it, and be an ally to the people who have to be hurt from something that seems so innocent but isnt at all.

We usually don’t reblog comments made on reblogs, but I think this is a very good explanation of what this blog is about. We’ve said it several times ourselves, but I think boydoicry articulated the point very well so maybe now some of you will understand better.

So, I have noticed a lot of SJWs bitching about Avril Lavigne, Gwen Stefani, and Katy Perry for apparently appropriating the Japanese culture. So I was curious why no one was flipping shit over this, and I decided to scroll through the tag. I now know why. Avril, Gwen, and Katy have something in common. They are white. It is ok for Nicki here to “appropriate” a culture because she is PoC. Double standards on Tumblr are just so fucking beautiful. 

LOL…except they did call out Nikki and Rihanna.  You’re just mad that they didn’t ignore your white favorites.

How about you’re just mad that your white favorite didn’t get a pass? 

And don’t forget Vanessa Hudgens (part Filipino, Chinese, and Native American) and Selena Gomez (half-Mexican)….
