Anonymous asked: Your whole idea of appropriation is RIDICULOUS. I don't get all pissy when I see crosses (a religious Christian symbol) being used in commercial mainstream jewellery.

Crosses are not earned. Crosses are not specific to one culture. Crosses do not carry the social equivalence that you are trying to make with say a warbonnet or perhaps a dreamcatcher.
In other words, shut the fuck up. 
Headdresses/warbonnets are a sacred, earned right in a select few tribes. You wouldn’t walk around with a purple heart you didn’t earn, so why wear a warbonnet whose significance you clearly have no intention of understanding?

Are you fucking serious?
How are crosses NOT sacred?
Christianity (& it’s branches) could be considered a culture too, and their symbols are as important to Christians as the symbols equivalent to your culture are to you. Don’t try to dismiss or make less of other people’s cultures to get your point across, just because you don’t belong to that culture it doesn’t mean it’s less important.

Yes the cross is really important, Jesus died on there to repent for the sins of man and that’s a really big deal.

Especially when most, if not all Christians in the western countries engage in practices Jesus himself would have been directly against.

Credit cards? Yeah, he was actually against a manipulative economy - that was his whole point in being violent to money changers - and the whole concept of credit has been proven to be fraudulent. 

But even if it wasn’t….

The cross itself has been used to cause genocide, enforce slavery, enforce pedophilia [selling of daughters via marriage] kill innocent people, take away the rights of women, the rights of human beings

It has been used to cause genocide against First Nations people

It has been used to enforce the slave trade of black bodies, and the rape of black women for the name of economics,

It has been used to justify hateful racism

It is still being used by the KKK

and

you

are

more upset

that someone uses the cross in the name of fashion

rather than

people who constantly use the cross in the name of things your Jesus constantly preached against.

Hm. Ok.

^^^^ Perfect commentary is perfect. 

Also, the cross has been used pretty universally as a cultural symbol & only in recent human history has it  been tied to Christianity. And, I was under the impression that the Crucifix is what is sacred in Christianity, anyway.

The cross is not exactly owned by any one culture or religion, but a warbonnet certainly is. Apples & oranges, OP.

to the best of my knowledge, it is used to engage in geometric visual warfare

Accurate.

GEOMETRIC VISUAL WARFARE.

No but can you imagine how distracting and disconcerting it’d be to go up against someone with a weapon like that
You wouldn’t know where the fuck to look and you’d only figure out which part to focus on when it’s buried in your gut

Every Mozilla browser [such as Firefox] includes a special “about” feature that allows you to configure certain sections just by typing “about:whatever” into the address bar. For example, if you type “about:about,” you’ll see a list of all the menus they offer. Some of the menus are actually cute Easter eggs, like “about:robots,” which takes you to a page referencing things like Blade Runner, Futurama, and the eventual annihilation of all mankind. However, if you type “about:mozilla,” perhaps looking to learn a bit more about the browser, you’ll come across a red screen with ominous Bible-like text written on it…

quote Do you ever think about all the people who you might have fallen in love with if only you’d taken a different way home or stood a little longer in the bread aisle at the supermarket? All the people who might have been an integral part of your life but instead you’ll never know them. The unimaginable impact that our mundane choices have on our lives really gets to me. Think of how many times I might have died if I’d made different choices. Maybe I’d be homeless. Maybe I’d be famous. Maybe I’d be rich. Sometimes I’m so overwhelmed by the impact of my choices that I can’t choose anything at all because I’m afraid today will be the day that I make the choice that changes everything.
