Can we just please talk about this? I am so mad and upset that Hot Topic has done it again. Our culture is not a f—king costume for them to wear. It’s not. It’s not.
I apologize, I’m not very eloquent but ugh it just really pisses me off that we’re gonna see a shit ton of people wearing something special to us on Halloween for years to come until another unfortunate culture is robbed of their culture.
And I also don’t want to hear, oh but I really am celebrating Day of the Dead! Bullshit. Show me your altar. Where you at church with your day of the dead bread and portraits of you loved ones to be blessed? Did you spend days cleaning the tomb of your loved ones? Did you spend the day at the cemetery of your loved ones while keeping them company? Most likely, it’s a no.
“The basis of most arguments against trans people is that we are not who we say we are, that we are always and only the gender that we were assigned at birth. And so much of that is about having a sense of certainty around gender, that when you were born with a certain set of genitalia, then that must dictate your entire life, and the reality is that that’s not true. A lot of people are not comfortable with that, because then that means they have to begin to question who they are.”- Laverne Cox

Black Venus | Josephine Baker| 1936
Josephine Baker (1906–1975), nicknamed the “Black Venus,” shown here in a publicity photo wearing a risque two-piece costume adorned with spikes, Signed and inscribed “To Church, With lots of admiration and beaucoup de friendship, bien sincerement, Josephine Baker, New York, 1936.”
Your not any less of a black girl if you don’t have a booty.
Your not any less of a black girl if you can’t dance.
Your not any less of a black girl if you don’t have any curves.
I find a lot of black girls feeling complacent if they do not have these certain attributes, that almost seem synonyms to Black Women. Your blackness is not and should not be defined by this.
I also see a lot of people, black or non black, who help perpetrate these stereotypes and it needs to end.
So far adulthood is just going grocery shopping, realizing you didn’t plan well or logically, going grocery shopping again, repeat ad infinitum. 0/10 stars, would not recommend
