honestly i wish thanksgiving would stop being a thing. the pilgrims were monsters who committed mass genocide against native americans, nobody sat around a table and ate food and made nice despite what your second grade teachers taught you, and it feels really fucked up that we still celebrate it every year.
like i know it isn’t just gonna go away, it’s a big holiday now. but i wish we could start using the holiday just as a day to spend time with family, watch too much television, and eat a bunch of food, and stop using it to celebrate the atrocities against an entire indigenous population. continuing to use thanksgiving to celebrate the pilgrims is so distasteful, and i can’t imagine how it makes today’s native americans feel to see a bunch of people celebrating the genocide of their ancestors over football and some greasy roasted bird.
