So if I’m not part of the culture, I can’t wear sugar skull makeup. And if I am part of that culture……..I still can’t wear sugar skull makeup. Ok. First thing I said was that it IS culture appropriation, babe. I acknowledged that full heatedly. Instead of getting all defensive, maybe get off anon and talk to me like a normal human being :D Since when it a crime to do something from another culture to acknowledge it’s beauty? But honestly I don’t do things seeking acceptance of others. If you don’t like what I do, get off of my blog :) Not answering any asks I get about this further, it’s really a quite stupid argument. I did the makeup, it’s been posted, nothing you can say will change that. Simple. Sorry! xo
I can almost guarentee that this is some shitty white person.
Like I live in a town where its pretty much just white and latin and we have “fiestas” downtown and salsa parties and all the traditional holidays are celebrated openly and never once have I ever been told by a Latin person that I’m not allowed to partake. Like, they even encourage it?
Like if you even read the history on Sugar Skulls you’ve learn it didnt even start as a Latin tradition it was brought over by Italian Missionaries way back when and was integrated into the Day of the Dead
So fucking hell.
This just brings me back to how ridiculous cultural appro- is. “IF YOU ARENT CHINESE YOU CANNOT EAT CHINESE FOOD” “IF YOU ARENT SPANISH YOU CANNOT SPEAK SPANISH OR EAT TACOS OR PEPPERS OR LEARN TO SALSA” “IF YOU ARE NOT INDIAN FUCK YOU NO TEA FOR YOU FUCK YOU BRITISH PEOPLE” “IF YOU ARENT BLACK YOU CANT HAVE DREADS OR WEAR BAGGY PANTS OR SAY HELLA”
Fuck me upside down. Seriously.
OH I FORGOT TO MENTION THAT IF YOU ARENT INDIAN YOU CANT USE THE NUMBER “0” BECAUSE INDIANS GAVE US THAT SO FUCK YOU HAVE FUN WITH MATH MOTHER FUCKERS.
I LOVE YOU. I’m literally dying over here, it’s awesome when someone can bring light to a situation that people are taking over the top. Thank you for this!!!!! <3 <3 xo
