For me, writing isn’t about making a living out of it or becoming super famous and successful, I write because I literally have to. Writing is extremely cathartic to me. It’s a very solitary medium of art, and like all other art forms, very very personal. It doesn’t matter if someone is “better” than you. It doesn’t matter whether you publish a book or win a contest or get into a journal. Write for yourself. Write because you love to write. Never stop writing because someone tells you not to. Never write for others. That’s how you exploit art and how you demean it and you disvalue it. Even if writing is not something you’ll do as a “career”, enjoy it for what it does for yourself. Let writing spread good vibes + cleanse your soul + make you happier.

Hm. I don’t think it’s okay to wear crosses as fashion statements because they’re a really huge part of a religion and it’s just disrespectful. I don’t really know who Billy the Kid is but he just seems to be a criminal or something? I don’t really think that’s cultural appropriation because it’s a specific person. If I, as a POC, were to be like “ok dressing up as a white girl for halloween haha starbucks and crocs” or something, that’s pretty fucked up, just like if a white girl were to be like “haha dressing up like a black girl for halloween” because that’s stereotyping and generalizing an entire culture/race. Whereas if I were to be like “i’m gonna be miley cyrus for halloween” there are like specific things i’d be wearing that are irrelevant to her race. I think that makes sense.
wait i need a good, not tacky theme that’s pretty and clean, no extra weird graphics etc etc. someone help??
i’m planning on making a bigger post bcus i got a ton of messages questioning why it’s not okay to wear bindis and though i’m probably not the absolute best person to ask, i’m gonna talk about what i know on the subject of cultural appropriation and why it’s really not cool. :]
i hope someone puts tiny bits of dog poop in your breakfast cereal :]
