women in dreads

: : : : : they need temples to live in, they need pure robes, pure waters and pure clear night sky and abundant plants… otherwise they cannot live… they are defiled by uncleanliness…

Being able to roll your eyes at the term “cultural appropriation” is a sign of privilege. You think everyone should just do what they want right? Because you’ve never been ridiculed or shamed for your traditions, culture, features, and appearance while at the same time seeing others copy or take those traditions, culture, features, and appearance and be praised for “starting trends” or “being edgy”. Keep that in mind next time you wanna throw a temper tantrum because a black girl told you you shouldn’t wear dreads.
