i could not tell you why i came to think of this, but the thought popped into my head and i thought you might like it: the story of vriska serket tells us that if it quacks like a duck and walks like a duck and acts like a duck and the farmer who raised it says it's a duck, there will still be a subset of people who are outraged at the suggestion that it isn't a swan.

:D

Anon, I LOVE it. Thank you for sharing this with me. Have a Vriska Ducket photoedit, just for you:

Anne Lamott thinks she gets a pass on her dreadlocks because "experience, and mindfulness, empathy" etc, and because of her readers, they give her a pass. But no matter how much a New York Buddhist, self helper you are, you are an old white lady with mad duckets and power and influence and you use feminism to give yourself a pass on appropriation. Seems like a special kind of twisted up feel good academic buuuulshit appropriation racism. Thoughts?

Is there anything more annoying than the people who give themselves passes on stuff?

PS. Including me, I know, I know.

"My general answer to this is to amplify the voices of people of color..." You are such a fucking hypocrat. You will do anythingn for likes HUH? Lol

I like this because it makes absolutely no sense. Like It actually doesn’t

The job of an ally is to support the people they are supporting. So the best way for a white person to support a POC cause is to amplify the voices of the people who are speaking out about said cause.

But yes I’m a fame whore *twerks for mad duckets*
