You can have a gender preference and still be bisexual. You are still 100% bi. You are valid.
white girls who want my culture’s bindis and saris and henna
take my skin colour too
and my dark brown lips
take my self-hatred because i don’t fit into the euro-centric ideals of beauty
take the oppression too
take the history of colonization that has devastated my country
and the drones that currently devastate my country
take all the bad stuff too
not just the pretty, shiny, sparky bits
take the ugly, dehumanizing and shitty parts too
friendly reminder that if i have ever befriended you and have not spoken to you in a while it’s nothing you’ve done wrong it’s just because i’m a piece of shit at keeping in contact with people and i still love you okay good
please refrain from the phrase “_____ is my spirit animal” unless you are native american and know what the fuck you’re talking about
Or I can do what I want
or you’re a racist who has 0 idea what a spirit animal is and how sacred it is to many indigenous peoples.
Me saying “my spirit animal is a box tortoise” does not make me a racist
yes it does. you are taking a sacred tradition and turning it into a trend without any respect for the people whose tradition you’re stealing. that is appropriation. that is racism.
or you could just ignore me and continue doing what you do bc who cares who you offend as long as you get to do what you want.
