Tribute to Steve Irwin, a guy who genuinely loved nature and animals.
This man was beyond real
"Crocodiles are easy. They try to kill and eat you. People are harder. Sometimes they pretend to be your friend first."

I have an original print of the second Moet Chandon piece! It’s my favorite.
White people seem to get really offended when other white people wear bindis, saris, kurtas, or anything remotely Indian.
You wanna talk cultural appropriation? How about Hitler taking the Hindu symbol for auspiciousness and using it for hateful propaganda just by turning it 45 degrees? Or…
that in the Chinese version of Disney’s Mulan, the fake name she gives is “Ping”, but her family name “Fa” in English is “Hua” in Chinese, therefore her full name is “Hua Ping”, which is literally “Flower Vase”, and that’s why Shang is so bewildered because it’s a silly name.
but OP how could you not tell them the best part
“hua ping”/flower vase is chinese slang for “camp gay”
Do yourself a favor and never scroll through the bindi tag on Instagram cause it is a sea of whiteness and basically white girls looking *~*hipster*~* at festivals with some cool bindi they got on eBay!
Then there’s like sprinkles if PoC whose culture actually practices wearing bindis.
I can’t speak for all Indians, but
A lot of us tend to gift our white friends bindis and other articles of clothing or accessories that are traditionally Indian, because we love sharing our culture.
People posting pics of themselves wearing Bindis on instagram is doing absolutely no harm to Indian culture. It’s actually pretty cool, if you ask me. In fact, it bothers me that more of my white friends DON’T ask me about wearing traditional clothing and going to Indian events in New York.
Then again that’s just me, but if an Indian person is legitimately offended by this, I’m sure they can speak out against it
I’ve saved this since March to post.
y’all are like “ooh everyone is beautiful” “ooh everyone deserves to feel hot” and then three seconds later you’re making fun of people who cover their acne with makeup and people who haven’t mastered winged eyeliner yet like grow the hell up you don’t get to pick and choose times to be body positive
just the girly things
- forcing an earing through a closed piercing
- taking off tight clothes and rubbing the indents they left on your skin
- human sacrifice
- homemade face masks
