How problematic

im gonna fuckin throw up

Okay, okay calm down, people.

While you are all losing your mind over ‘cultural appropriation” of an Indian dress, nobody actually consulted THE INDIANS. 

In our country, if a foreigner wears an Indian saree, we actually appreciate it. It shows that the foreigner respects us enough to try our clothes. And the saree, mind you, is not a religious thing. Hindus can wear sarees, Muslims can wear sarees, Sikh’s can wear sarees, Jain’s can wear sarees and so on.

Like Americans have short dresses, compare that with sarees. Going to a party? Saree. Going to temple? Saree, and so on.

Some Indians wear it, some don’t. Some hate it and think its oppressing, some love embracing the unique style.

Point is, don’t hate on her for wearing this. Don’t hate on anyone for wearing sarees or any variations of sarees. We love to see others embracing our culture. Why do you think we open our gates to allow everyone to practice yoga and find spiritual meaning?

Culture is not meant to be kept within four walls, it should be spread.

I did not know this. That is really interesting to find out. Thanks for the information.

okay first of all what kind of uncle tom teas

you don’t seem to know what appropriation means, do you? you don’t speak for all indians so stop acting like you do. this costume is a gross bastardization of a south asian outfit it & looks like she bought it at party packagers. do you not see the issue with that? gaga, a white woman, can wear whatever the fuck she wants and it’s called “embracing culture”. that outfit is not embracing culture, it’s RUINING it. as long as desi women are called fobs and pakis and sand n*****s for wearing our cultural clothing in north america, cultural appropriation will never be okay. fuck off i hate people like you. toomanyfandomssolittletime

I wish I could make this my banner on every social network. Im so tired of being asked the same stressful questions EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Also family reunions….like a joke, in a totally serious kind of way, but not to offend..
