It can wait.

Pluto becoming a planet again has really taught us that if we complain hard enough about something, we can change things, even on a planetary level

What we do is we keep filling the
internetworld with things like this so that the assholes can’t help but see it. And see it. And keep seeing it until it starts getting through. Because it’s the constant flow of assholery that normalizes their behaviour, and that’s what we have to supersede.
I love Jessica Williams so much.
I’ve seen some posts making this guilt trip of how the people who like to dress up as a sugar skull or the Catrina for halloween or whatever is racist and cultural appropriation.
Nah, it’s completely fine, as long as you are not totally ignorant about it or disrespectful.
Sugar skull represents the deceased, in a joyful manner. And the Catrina is just a social critic which became an icon later on for the day of the dead and Mexico.
It is not offensive to turn this into a costume or an accessory because it already is, so if you want to dress up like sugar skulls on Halloween, do so, but atleast know it’s value.
Be open minded, don’t even hate, and share this rich culture we have with the rest of humanity, chill.
This post is about that eradicating guilt trip and blaming, and turn it into self awareness
By the Gods, thank you!
