ok listen, it doesnt fucking matter how “”“spiritual”“” and “”respectful”“you think you are, youre not part of the culture. thats it. you cant wear a bindi, there is literally nothing you’re gaining from wearing a bindi anyway. and white people wearing a bindi does jack shit. you wearing the bindi doesn’t make the people of the culture feel respected, because when you wear it? you’re seen as a fashionable white girl. when brown people wear it? they’re called fobs, told to go back to their own country, ridiculed.
as a white girl youre privileged, you get to hide behind your white skin, you get to pick and choose parts of different cultures because you think theyre pretty and cool. well guess what, me and others like me? we dont get to do that. when we practice our OWN culture, we are looked down upon, while you do the same thing, and because of your white skin, you’re praised for it. you wanna wear a bindi? fine. but make sure you take the entire religion with you. take the burden of racism and brown skin with you. take the centuries of discrimination, blood, sweat, and tears with you. then, and only then, can you wear the bindi.
So as much as you think you’re “helping”, you’re not. so shut the fuck up and just accept the fact that your bitch ass should not be wearing a bindi. also, youre a piece of shit.
