Hey! So, Coming Out Day is coming up soon (Oct. 11) and I just want to post a very stern reminder to NOT out anyone without their explicit permission.

Do NOT out anyone.

Got it?

Okay.

this is also a less important point, but still worth noting: DO NOT “come out” as an ally. don’t you dare.

Also - don’t feel pressured to come out. You don’t have an obligation to put yourself in an unsafe situation for any reason.

reblog if u hate capitalism but u still want to make money because you need money to survive capitalism lmao i’m sad

Signal boost for GamePhobias, a wiki-style website dedicated to categorizing games based on content and trigger warnings. Users can either view content warning categories to find games that do and don’t contain the triggering content, or search for specific games to see exactly what content warnings are attached to that title (as well as brief, almost exclusively non-graphic descriptions as to specific scenes/levels containing that content).

It’s a very, very new wiki (IIRC it launched late August) and so its offerings are very paltry right now, and I would seriously encourage anyone with experience with games, wikis, and/or both to contribute however they can.

I’m writing up a review for FFXIV right now, and I seriously encourage anyone who can do this to help out!! This is SUPER helpful to people with triggers and I’m going to use it in the future.

Don’t ignore this, I know gamer culture doesn’t care about mentally ill people but you guys should try to be better than that.

I want to do my makeup like this one day.

It’s not makeup, it’s Harquus. And unless you’re North African, it would be considered Cultural Appropriation if you did this.
So please don’t.

what hana said. you can appreciate a culture without shitting all over it. it’s called being respectful and genuinely admiring a culture and its people and honoring their wishes.

I am so sick of people telling other people what to do. If this is the case if you are not of European decent, stop talking about Celtic traditions. Like the wheel of the year. Stop talking about anything Celtic, Norse or anything. If you are European stop anything you are doing that is not European.
See how stupid that sounds? Just because someone wishes to do something that is not their culture doesn’t mean they are ruining it. I mean how many people of African or Asian or Latino decent celebrate thanksgiving every year? Are they shitting on that holiday(whether you think the holiday is a rightful or not). People of every race that is not of European decent celebrating Halloween?
Just Christ shut up. Unless someone is doing something like for example putting on makeup like this for the soul purpose to disrespect the culture shut up.
Also is you are practicing Wicca or for that matter any religion that is not of your culture background you should stop? That is basically what you are telling people.

I was going to save this for later because I’m kinda tired, but no I’ll write it now because I’m up for it. Hana don’t worry I got this one.
Holy mother fuckin shit you have no clue what the hell you are talkin about do you? One, who ever SAID that white people can’t ever talk about other cultures and their practices, traditions? Tell me who said? No one has ever said white people can’t speak and talk a word of PoC and indigenous cultures. What we DID say is people taking aspects of those cultures, practices, and traditions without regards to the people and significance of them and “exotifying” and “fetishizing” us and our cultures. Native American headdresses? No one should ever wear them unless they are a Native from the various nations that do have headdresses and even then it should only be worn by those who deserved it and for religious purposes in some cases. Bindi’s? If you aren’t a part of any culture that has a bindi or similar to it then do not take it because of some idiotic fashion statement. If you are given the ok by someone who is Indian or any other group of people who traditionally wear them and you aren’t doing it because it’s “exotic” and a fashion trend then that is fine and you aren’t appropriating. If you start saying things like, “Oh look I’m an Indian!” or “I have started wearing a bindi because it connects with all my chakra’s and awakening my mystical powers opening up myself to the universe” then yes you are appropriating and those people whose traditions and practices are being taken to be used for your purposes get insulted and tell you to stop then you better well fuckin’ stop. If you don’t care then that just proves how much of a racist ass you are. And if you do happen to do things like this, get called out on, don’t freakin’ go complaining “Oh I didn’t know!”, “Why are you picking on me!? I’m not racist I just found it cool!”, “You guys should chill out” etc. You know what we want to see? People actually apologizing and acknowledging what they did was wrong. That’s it. And also by doing that, keeping to it, and not repeating the same mistake again and not just saying that to get people off your back.
Now let me break down your entire post.

I am so sick of people telling other people what to do. If this is the case if you are not of European decent, stop talking about Celtic traditions. Like the wheel of the year. Stop talking about anything Celtic, Norse or anything. If you are European stop anything you are doing that is not European.

Oh this is so classic and overused seriously. One how the hell can you be sick of people, people who are PoC or indigenous telling those who have no right to take something from those cultures to stop. YOU have no right to tell PoC and indigenous that they should shut up and stop telling white people to stop their insistent abuse of our cultures and traditions for their own liking after all the shit they have put us through and still put us through. After telling us that to get rid of our cultures and practices to conform to white European standards and then all of a sudden saying, “Oh how cool and exotic this and this is! Let’s take it!”
Wheel of the Year? Really? Really? That is not even Celtic tradition or calendar. Four of them are the rest aren’t. And you want to talk about appropriating? How about that 3-Fold Law shit and plenty of other aspects of Wicca and Neo-Paganism that has taken from other cultures and groups. And again, those cultures you mentioned above? THEY AREN’T OPPRESSED. You think majority of PoC give a crap about all that and European cultures? Hell fuckin Europeans forced PoC to assimilate into their white culture. If it was up to us to change history we would have kicked every one of your ancestors out of our lands and away from us. We would change it so that we weren’t forced and killed, to give up our cultures and traditions so we would fit your standards of what a human was. And again, who ever said white people couldn’t talk about PoC and indigenous cultures and traditions?? God, I’m not even half way done and I’m getting tired of this shit.

See how stupid that sounds?

See how stupid you sound?

Just because someone wishes to do something that is not their culture doesn’t mean they are ruining it. I mean how many people of African or Asian or Latino decent celebrate thanksgiving every year? Are they shitting on that holiday(whether you think the holiday is a rightful or not).

Thanksgiving? Really? Ah hell, so basically you are telling everyone who isn’t white that they don’t belong in the United States and should get out is that correct? That just because we weren’t here when white people came and invaded and took these lands from Native Americans for their own selfish purposes (and you think this is over? think again), that we can’t celebrate Thanksgiving? God you are one ignorant and racist ass by that sentence alone.

People of every race that is not of European decent celebrating Halloween?

One, not everyone celebrate Halloween that is mainly an American holiday. Second if you are standing by your words then no one who isn’t Irish should be celebrating that am I correct? Even then Halloween is not Samhain, Halloween has formed into something else completely different from Samhain. And do we really want to go into this whole celebrating the dead thing? Because I can name how many fuckin’ cultures that have celebrated the dead on certain days.

Just Christ shut up. Unless someone is doing something like for example putting on makeup like this for the soul purpose to disrespect the culture shut up.

See that’s the point! Putting on a Harquus when you aren’t from any of those cultures who traditionally had them is disrespecting them! Putting on indigenous tattoo’s like those found in the Pacific is disrespecting them. And again, do not fuckin’ tell us to shut up when we call out on appropriation and talk about PoC and indigenous issues. You are tired of us? Aww. To bad we aren’t shutting up anytime soon just because some white privileged male is sick of it all.

Also is you are practicing Wicca or for that matter any religion that is not of your culture background you should stop? That is basically what you are telling people.

One Wicca is not an ethnic religion. Maybe you should look into your history of Wicca and Neo-Wicca. One Wicca was formed by Gerald Gardner, who took aspects of other cultures, especially those from Asia to make his religion. Second it’s an open religion, not like other religions which are specifically ethnic and folk religions and if you are not a part of that culture or raised up in it you have no right to take part in it because they are essentially ethnic and folk religions, unless of course you are given permission to participate in them by practicing with those who do practice those religions.
Your whole post was all racist and ignorance and this is why I and many other PoC Pagans have left the Pagan community on here because of ignorant and racist asses like you.

brb, getting a nose-bleed from your awesome. <3 

Awesome break-down of cultural appropriation. Reblogging it here because it specifically points out that pagans need to look into where our beliefs come from (and because they tried to use Wicca as an example of PoC “appropriating” white culture hahahahahahahahahahahahaha)

And this is why I side-eye my pseudo-intellectual hipster friends that think just because I know the phrase “culutral appropriation” it makes this “native print purse” I got at Urban Outfitters alright, because I know what appropriating is and it’s not this. No, you are still appropriating. 
People just need to realize how much mainstream media leans on appropriating other cultures and we’re all fully capable. When you get called out don’t take it to heart, just fucking apologize and attempt to not do it again.
By the way, isn’t there a bit of irony in as many white people saying well don’t appropriate Celtic, Norse or Greek/Roman cultures ( I combined the last, because I’ve seen people mix them up all the time in their analogies). Your cultures have been built society. Sorry, white people who won’t let me appropriate Norse and Roman culture, no more celebrating Thursday or July. I guess I can’t get a c-section either since I’m apparently appropriating your culture.
The response to that douchebag was perfect.
