this picture of kyary looking like shes plotting lady gaga’s gruesome demise is honestly so important to me. you go kyary i hope they never find the body
Kyary’s face is kinda how i feel whenever you get white entertainers like “look at this kooky japanese street fashion leeeeeeel!!” when they obviously have no fucking clue. She’s stood next to an actual japanese street fashion icon/ model/ singer and she looks like she just threw on a bunch of shit and drew on anime eyes. Anime eyes. If you aim to do something like dress in japanese street fashion, or at least emulate it- why the fuck not get advice from the people who follow it , influence it and design it instead of wearing like some kind of fucking costume, effectively tokenising something thats been evolving for years and is a real, serious fashion like goth. I hate this shit- japan’s youth culture is not your fucking plaything to make you edgy.

question on this - Is this appropriation? I know that some phrases like ‘spirit animal’ are commonly used by non-Native folks, and this is problematic. I am wondering if ‘war paint’ is the same?
I’m not sure it is- tons of cultures have had ‘war paint’, or something similar. For example a certain culture which may have painted themselves blue and I may be part of (*cough* Scotland *cough*). I think the main problem is that due to the massive appropriation of native American culture ‘war paint’ as a phrase is synonymous with native Americans, and also stems from the archaic, tribal, hyper violent image they received throughout the years.

You know when you get so nostalgic you start to tear up a little? (Either that or thinking about what the series turned into)
Ok Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin, (yes groan, but listen up) has this new app out (iPhone and Android) that’s for people in abusive relationships. It’s called Aspire News and it’s disguised as a regular news app, but when you go to the “Help” section of the app, it leads you to…
