I wash my hair regularly yet I also face the exact discrimination when it comes to hair. People judge dreadlocks no matter what colour you are
You do not experience the same discrimination as a black person with locs would experience. Another reason why cultural appropriation is so harmful is that the consequences for a white person rat nesting their hair are not the same as a black person who has locs. Rat nesting your hair and calling it dreadlocks or locs is an act of racism because you are stealing a part of a culture that does not belong to you, that holds great significance to those who traditionally participates in these cultures. Not only are you stealing this practice but you are also changing its meaning, thereby devaluing the cultural significance behind the practice, and disrespecting those who do practice it. Please research white privilege, cultural appropriation, racial profiling, and please google articles of black men, women, and children, who are denied school access, jobs, etc due to their cultural practice of wearing locs.
Ugh this is so important
The fact that most guys’ first response to a woman wanting equality is “SO CAN I HIT U NOW” is sort of terrifying
Like that’s the first thing you’re concerned about? I just want equal pay and you want to punch me in the face? Cool cool
