carrotsforferrets asked: Your arguments aren't exactly holding steady for me if you won't provide basic information that isn't a link to someone else's work. I am genuinely interested in your viewpoints, but being hostile isn't going to draw me to your side. From an economic, ecological, and culturally imperialist viewpoint, yes, Globalization is shitty. But why do you find the idea of "unity through diversity" shitty as well? What's more, who put you in charge of deciding who can participate in what? That's not fair
If you’re so indignant that I’m “deciding who can participate in what” then why do you want “basic information that isn’t a link to someone else’s work”? You may be interested in toying with the idea of discussing cultural appropriation, but I can tell you aren’t even remotely interested in checking your privilege. I’m not attempting to draw you to my side because it’s up to you to educate yourself. I’m just pointing you in the right direction. This blog is a resource blog, and we answer questions nicely and informatively when the question isn’t basic and completely misinformed about racial issues. We’ve gotten this question literally an infinite amount of times. Did you even scroll down?
In short, if someone tells you that you’re being problematic and you view it as a discussion rather than a sign that you need to figure out where their views are coming from, you’re being an asshole.
Go look up “economic exploitation” and “colonization.” Globalization isn’t just shitty - it’s a deliberate attempt to mask the hxstory of imperialism and racial hierarchy by telling us we all are born with the same privilege, opportunities, and ownership of our cultures.
