u mamamoo fans are always fucking protecting them even with all the stupid shit they do. even as white girl i can see that they appropriated the bindi. u fucking whore.

i wasnt going to answer this because, as a general rule, i dont post rude anons on my blog but this really bothered me. so im going to break this down for you.

1. What Mamamoo wore was NOT a bindhi - it was an Urna. We know this because of the lyrics in Aze Gag. Now an Urna, according to Google (and my mom), is a spiral or circular dot placed on the forehead of Buddhists and is very often seen on east and south asian art work. It is not constricted to one specific culture, but the religion as a whole. So many east asian women and men who practise are seen wearing urnas:

ex 1 (this is specific to Korea, I believe):

ex 2:


Fun fact, everyone in my family are practising Buddhists. we love it when people look and recognize our culture and religion. I showed the mv to my parents because i wanted their input. my mom laughed and my dad said they looked cute.

Another fun fact, Solar is also Buddhist. If she wanted to wear the urna and let her friends wear an urna. that’s that. nothing to say. nothing to do. If you are insulted because they wore urnas and are buddhist, you have every right to be and can unstan them. its ur right.

2.  Again, what they wore was NOT a bindhi. ANOTHER FUN FACT: i am from India - born and raised who now lives in Canada! I’m not exactly sure about other South asian countries because ive never been there but in India,  the traditional meaning of the bindi is extinct (i dont even know what it means), it’s more a fashion accessory than a religious thing.

Also, most Indians LOVVVEEEE it when foreigners come and try on our kurtis/kurtas and wear bindis and come with us to temples. WE TAKE GREAT PRIDE. i effing love it when i see other people take part and understand it.

this lovely lady does a much better job at explaining this: https://twitter.com/stravaganxo/status/877490121443913729

Again, Mamamoo were not wearing bindis and even if they were it would not be a problem to Indians living in India. However, if you are South Asian and you felt uncomfortable with the fact, you have every right to be and can unstan them. 

3. GURL YOU ARE WHITE YOU HAVE ZEROOO BUSINESS IN THIS MATTER. TAKE YOUR WHITE ASS HOME. YOUR OPINION IS UNWARRANTED, UNNECERARY AND ANNOYING.

4. Was is really necessary to curse? you could have easily written your opinion in a dignified manner - even if youre angry or upset, name-calling is not the way go.

5. Like I’ve mentioned before, as an indian buddhist i was not offended by what Mamamoo did at all. But if YOU were, that is completely youre right (BUT ONLY IF YOU ARE BUDDHIST OR SOUTH ASIAN). You can unstan them but please just stop leaving hate everywhere, telling them to die, etc. it’s just horrible. If you are from a different culture, religion, etc you can ALSO unstan them - its completely your choice! just stop butting in with ur opinions when you dont know the true culture or know all the facts.

thank you. sorry for any mistakes, i wrote this when i was very upset.

A Man Content in Death

Ausonius, Epigrammata 31 “In tumulo hominis felicis”

Sprinkle on my ashes pure wine
And the sweet-smelling oil of spikenard, o stranger,
And add to that balsam and deep red roses.
My urn spends its days in endless spring,
Knowing no tears; and I have merely
Swapped out my lifespan, not ended it.
None of the joys of my life of old
Have perished, whether you suppose
That I recall everything or nothing at all. 

Sparge mero cineres bene olentis et unguine nardi,
    hospes, et adde rosis balsama puniceis.
perpetuum mihi ver agit inlacrimabilis urna
    et commutavi saecula, non obii.
nulla mihi veteris perierunt gaudia vitae,
    seu meminisse putes omnia, sive nihil.

I feel this has to be said: 1) Solar is a Buddhist. 2) I heard RBW removed the original video and reuploaded a different version, but in the version where they were wearing a dot on their forehead, that is NOT a bindi, especially when you consider the subject matter of the song. It’s most likely an urna, because the song references the Buddha who is always depicted with an urna, or third eye. Depending on the artist the urna can be depicted as either a spiral or circular dot. 3) Dots on the forehead are not exclusive to Indian culture and they’re not always bindi. Traditional Korean makeup often reserved for weddings also involve a red dot on the forehead (as well as on the cheeks), and a writing ceremony in China also involves children having a red dot painted on their forehead (to symbolize the opening of the third eye)–just do a Google search of “Chinese forehead dot”.
