don’t say spirit animal if you’re not native american thanks
the concept of the spirit animal is not limited to the native american culture
oh my god. i am native american. you are not. im not OBLIGATED to give you information about why mocking my culture is wrong, you disgusting fucking racist.
Let me re-assess this.
Spirit animals are a part of Native American culture.
You assert that because of this, the use of the term is limited to use only in its original definition, by only Native Americans.
I assert that spirit animals are not limited to Native American culture.
Tumblr user vergess has proved me wrong, by bringing up the fact that doing so turns spiritualism in its entirety into a fad. And she’s right.
I apologize for being wrong, but being in a minority doesn’t grant you the authority to harass someone for thinking just a LITTLE differently. You’re Native American, and you have the right to get angry at someone for appropriating your culture. In my own experience as a southeast Asian, I don’t get angry at people for enjoying my culture, because my culture is fucking cool. If someone were to take my culture but take the Asian out of it, I’d tell them, but I wouldn’t call them a racist fucktard. Being misinformed isn’t horrible. Refusing to be informed it horrible. The way you approach people who don’t think the way you think is rather toxic. Remember that there’s a Martin Luther King day, not a Malcom X day. I’m trying to respect you, but it’s becoming hard because of the way you’re acting.
