Just as a public service announcement:
- Perrie Edwards is guilty of cultural appropriation
- Selena Gomez is guilty of cultural appropriation
- Vanessa Hudgens is guilty of cultural appropriation
- Iggy Azalea is guilty of cultural appropriation
- Katy Perry is guilty of cultural appropriation
- Lady Gaga is guilty of cultural appropriation
- Michelle Williams is guilty of cultural appropriation
- Sarah Hyland is guilty of cultural appropriation
- Kendall and Kylie Jenner are guilty of cultural appropriation
I’m not saying that these celebrities are bad people, or that they should be bullied or ostracized. And I’m not saying that they are the only ones, because cultural appropriation is a huge problem in America, as well as across the world. It disheartens me to see people that I have appreciated (and still do!) on this list. I just want to call attention to the fact that even though someone might be your favorite singer/actress, your role model, or your inspiration, doesn’t mean that you can erase the facts — and the fact are that these are instances of cultural appropriation.
I realize there are no men on this list, but that is only because I focused on cultural appropriation in celebrity fashion, for which there was an overwhelming amount of information on women.
Still confused over why cultural appropriation is a big deal? Check out this project. My inbox is always open for any questions.

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” ― W.B. Yeats
sometimes i get irritated about all the white people jokes and stereotypes on this website, but then i remember that in the real world i’m privileged as fuck and people who are not white have to deal with that shit all the time in real life so I’m not irritated anymore
"Not all of us can be Harry Potter, can be the chosen one. Some of us are just w i z a r d i n g.”
Wizarding is a semi-oc Harry Potter roleplay set in modern day Wizarding London that is currently taking applications, and will be accepting next Tuesday. Characters are be up to player, aside from a few guidelines to assure that no two characters are too similar. The roleplay is focused highly on character development and progression. It’s all about the writing. These characters have nothing in common except the fact that they all reside in Wizarding London.
Currently we are working on developing a few methods commonly used in forum roleplays for the tumblr roleplay community. For example, there will be a sideblog where shippers will be posted from the applications for people to reply to and character relationships to be made. We will also be using a plot board, and having multiple writing challenges. Wizarding is meant to be more than just another Harry Potter roleplay. It is a community for writers and their characters; a place we hope you’ll stay a while.
SOME CURRENT OPEN TEMPLATES: Healer, Broom Maker, Auror, Professor, Quidditch Player, Bookstore Owner, Robe Tailor, Shop Owner, Musician, Wizengamot Member, Obliviator, Banker, Curse Breaker, Shopkeeper, Hit Wizard, Quidditch Commentator, Quidditch Referee, Magizoologist, Minister of Magic’s Secretary, Chef, and Radio Broadcaster.

Thank god I’m not the only one who feels the same way!
wait about the romance thing or about kristoff being a furry?
May I ask why Kristanna is your notp?
Because I really disliked that Frozen ended with a romance and even though there wasn’t an on-stage wedding, it was the same old fall in love ending.
Also, Kristoff is clearly a furry.
