phew nobody’s trying to rip me a new asshole for my spiel on why doing something like smoking a hookah or drinking bubble tea isn’t cultural appropriation.

It really, really pisses me off how Tumblr has so completely fucked the dog on that concept, because it is an actual thing that happens when people grab items from other cultures willy-nilly with no understanding of what significance they have—such as hipsters wearing headresses, or my earlier example of taking a religious item and using it for a fashion trinket.

The problem is not just “omg ur doing something from another culture!!!,” it’s taking shit and misusing it/misrepresenting it, and disrespecting that culture by doing so. 


There is a big difference between doing something like smoking a hookah, eating sushi, and drinking bubble tea, and ripping off something deeply meaningful from those cultures without any understanding of its significance. One is sharing, one is stealing. 

while this is 100% true, there are still moments when white people taking part in something (such as smoking hookah) irks me.

not because they’re doing the thing

but because of their attitudes

i’ve had people try to lecture me about how hookah was healthier and more environmentally friendly than smoking cigarettes. or have had people tell me it’s not “an Arab thing” or that white people invented it. or have had people act fucking enlightened because they do this thing from a culture that is not theirs. or have had people treat employees at a hookah lounge/bar like shit, or make fun of them, or be blatantly racist while taking part in my culture

so, yes, you can enjoy the culture without appropriating it! but it all depends on attitude (like how you said, disrespecting the culture)

Smoking hookah can technically be considered cultural appropriation, and is not really okay.

Thank you for your input, anon. I’m extremely disappointed to hear that considering it’s something I really enjoy, but the last thing i ever want to do is appropriate another culture. It’s not my place. I’m going to have to research it a bit more but I really appreciate you letting me know.

If I admit that the hookah is a part of a culture I have no place in and note that I am not trying to steal it and make it my own it would be okay? I’d love some other people’s input on this, if anyone has anything to add! 

ppl who unironically reblog white ppl with dreads …..

ok

The single greatest picture ever taken in my life. We threw Yu-gi-oh cards at the ceiling fan to watch them scatter, and just happened to take a picture right at this exact moment. To this day, this is the only time I’ve ever heard of anyone breaking a ceiling fan blade with cards.
