jk rowling unilaterally writing that not a single member of slytherin house fought in the battle of hogwarts and instead every single one of them hid like cowards is honestly one of the laziest most flaccid writing decisions of our time

(via versaria)

would you still want to 

write 

that

poem

if

you could not bring your “enter” key with you (via lord-kitschener)

This poem is literally so weak.

If it didn’t have a little note at the end explaining that it’s about appropriation, it would actually come across anti-technology, like “young people nowadays, taking pictures!! back in my day we used to look at things with our EYES!!”

But since we do know it’s supposed to be about cultural appropriation, shall we take a look at what it actually says about cultural appropriation.

Firstly, we could take it to mean that taking photos of places you are not from is cultural appropriation. Which is obviously stupid. I don’t think that’s what she was going for, but the way she wrote it left this interpretation open. Good job.

If we take it as a non-rhetorical question, the answer for everyone is “of course!” This becomes a problem when we take into what I think she actually meant.

Next, we could take it to mean that people who culturally appropriate do not have a genuine interest in the culture, and are shallow and obsessed with images. I think this is actually what she was trying to say. But it’s pandering populist bullshit. It allows people to split people who culturally appropriate off into some separate group, who are rich and go on holidays to far off places and are shallow and don’t take a genuine interest. As if genuine interest prevents you from being culturally appropriative. This poem invites you to see yourself as not one of these terrible stupid culturally appropriative people. Of course you would go even if you didn’t have a camera, you want to experience that culture, not just take photos like some kind of voyeur!

All this poem serves as, is a pat on the back to anyone reading it. Of course you’d still go, of course you don’t culturally appropriate, we really told that group of gross culturally appropriative people, right?? That group you are definitely not part of!! They’re bad! You’re not bad like them!

I don’t think the author wrote it with that intention. But that’s the function it’s serving now. That’s why people like it.
