You live up to your url…
Human Feelings as Drugs
Okay but they did that in Doctor Who and everybody became utter junkies and it practically destroyed the civilisation.
The did that in Alice too. Didn’t go to well.
Peace serum in Divergent, Soma in Brave New World… only in Brave New World did it ever work, and even then sometimes it worked too well (like the white boy and his mother who lived with the “savages”, and then when they came back his mother drugged herself into oblivion).
I would probably agree with something for peace, or hope, or empathy… but only in mild doses. Let’s not even go NEAR the other ones. And these would obviously have to be EXTREMELY controlled substances. They’d definitely be ridiculously addictive.
Just stay away from Bliss. And whatever you do, don’t try to aerosolize it and cast it out over the population. Because half the people will become complacent and die, and the other half will become horrible freakizoid mass murdering cannibalistic asshats. See Firefly for details.
Madonna should be include in this since she started that whole craze in the 1990s.
When I see posts like this I get really frustrated. I have no cultural roots, because I am a fucking american. I don’t have a colorful native land, I have consumerism. If I am to paint myself up to look beautiful it is suggested that I cake on makeup like a pin-up girl. I am not allowed to borrow from other cultures because I’m not part of them. On the flip side, if I discourage other cultures who want to copy my stupidfuckingamericanshit, I’m being disrespectful about the choices they’re making.
I just want to run around in a sari, paint my face like an african woman’s, do my hair up like a geisha, and pretend that I’m a beautiful woman from another culture. I mean them no disrespect. I just love their beauty so much that I want to emulate it.
How. Is. That. Wrong.
BECAUSE YOU DIMWIT IT IS RACIST AND YOU CAN APPRECIATE THE CULTURE WITHOUT BEING A FUCKING DUMBASS AND PAINT YOUR OWN FACE BECAUSE YOU WANT TO BE BLACK JESUS CHRIST
and every damn person in this world has consumerism, america isn’t a wasteland of just material shit smh you need to stop exotifying other cultures
you cant ~pretend~ to be another culture without making a caricature and stereotyped version of it. appreciate the culture all you want but when you want to do blackface which is literally the most racist shit ever in order to glorify women you need to stop
Tragicblessing, correct me if I’m wrong, but you’re white, right? Which means your cultural roots are in Europe. Just because you don’t have some “exotic” or “colorful” culture (which would be incorrect since there are all kinds of cultures and histories in Europe, but for some reason, a lot of culture appropriators think that), doesn’t mean you get to pilfer other people’s because you want to look cute. You mean no respect, but your statement pretty much proves you don’t mind being disrespectful. You just want everyone to be okay with it with so you can keep doing what you’re doing.
My culture is NOT interchangeable w/ other cultures from sub-Saharan Africa or East Asia. You want to appreciate Indian culture? Then fucking study some Hindi or Tamil, read South Asian novels, support Desi artists (such as ME!!!), writers, filmmakers, and learn all about South Asian cultures and histories. And do NOT, DO NOT PUT MY CULTURE IN THE SAME GROUP WITH MILLIONS OF OTHER CULTURES FROM AFRICA OR ASIA. How dare you think it’s OK to interchange and treat our cultures like it’s some fashion statement? Do you have any idea about the THOUSANDS of languages and cultures in India alone?
And no, you are NOT allowed to wear the saree, bindi, sindoor, tikka, or any other Indian clothes because you are NOT a part of my culture.
And guess what? I admire Mexican, Native American, Central American, Indigenous, and South American cultures yet I have NO DESIRE to copy their styles or wear their clothes. Because I know that’s DISRESPECTFUL.
Rather, I appreciate other cultures by SUPPORTING their people and their communities and their artistic works, and their social outreach projects.
P.S dipshit, many women of color all around the world plaster their faces with a lot of make-up and wear pin-up style fashion. Oh the horror.
My dad is now undergoing another emergency operation as we speak, I don’t know what to do but ask you to please make the most sincere dua that you can… he’s really weak and we’re afraid something might happen.. The worst part is he doesn’t even know that he just underwent two operations. Ya Allah grant us sabr and empower the weak..
Ya arham al harameen
Never ever take your health and parents health for granted. May Allah accept your fasts, prayers, and duas during Rajab.
