Anonymous asked: Is wearing a dirndl cultural appropriation if you're North German? (Because it's Bavarian, the dirndl has nothing to with German traditional clothes outside Bavaria)

Kamanitree: Then I would assume so but it would be better to ask Germans/Bavarians.

From my standpoint: Not at all. The problem with wearing a dirndl is when it becomes a costume. But where I’m from it’s actually another issue: It’s often seen as not honoring your own culture (so to speak) and assimilating another lifestyle - at least by some people that I know. Also: Technically I’m from Bavaria.

But just to be safe: thislifesend, wheremightyriversrun?

Dirndl…well. I technically life in Bavaria. The free state of Bavaria to be exact. But I also see myself as Franconian (Franconia has been a part of Bavaria since around 1803). A lot of Franconian people are kind of offended when you call them Bavarians. It’s a lot like Scotland and England, to give an example to non German people. A lot of our culture is about trying to draw lines between Franconians and Bavarians. I for example don’t like it when girls wear a dirndl to the fairs in my hometown. BUT I find it totally okay to wear a dirndl. They are fashionable and most women look fantastic in it. If you want to wear one, do it. I personally probably wont because Franconian and stuff, but I don’t think of it as cultural appropriation. BUT Bavarians have become a stereotype for Germans as a whole and are often mocked for their Dirndl and Brezen and Lederhosen and so on.

Conclusion: If you want to wear a Dirndl because you find it fashionable, go on. Just please don’t do it to make fun of Bavarians (which is my definition of cultural appropriation).

PS: Political correctness is fine, but please don’t overdo it.

my sentiments exactly. I’ve bought a dirndl recently (sorry…) and I’d never wear it at home… anyway, here it’s totally ok to wear basically “whenever”

When Brazilian graphic designer Carol Rossetti began posting colorful illustrations of women and their stories to Facebook, she had no idea how popular they would become. 

Thousands of shares throughout the world later, the appeal of Rosetti’s work is clear. Much like the street art phenomenon Stop Telling Women To Smile, Rossetti’s empowering images are the kind you want to post on every street corner, as both a reminder and affirmation of women’s bodily autonomy. 

"It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities," Rossetti told Mic via email. "It’s a kind of oppression so deeply entangled in our culture that most people don’t even see it’s there, and how cruel it can be."

Rossetti’s illustrations touch upon an impressive range of intersectional topics, including LGBTQ identity, body image, ageism, racism, sexism and ableism. Some characters are based on the experiences of friends or her own life, while others draw inspiration from the stories many women have shared across the Internet. 

"I see those situations I portray every day," she wrote. "I lived some of them myself."

Despite quickly garnering thousands of enthusiastic comments and shares on Facebook, the project started as something personal — so personal, in fact, that Rossetti is still figuring out what to call it. For now, the images reside in albums simply titled “WOMEN in english!" or "Mujeres en español!" which is fitting: Rossetti’s illustrations encompass a vast set of experiences that together create a powerful picture of both women’s identity and oppression.

One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the way it has struck such a global chord. Rossetti originally wrote the text of the illustrations in Portuguese, and then worked with an Australian woman to translate them to English. A group of Israeli feminists also took it upon themselves to create versions of the illustrations in Hebrew. Now, more people have reached out to Rossetti through Facebook and offered to translate her work into even more languages. Next on the docket? Spanish, Russian, German and Lithuanian.

It’s an inspiring show of global solidarity, but the message of Rossetti’s art is clear in any language. Above all, her images celebrate being true to oneself, respecting others and questioning what society tells us is acceptable or beautiful.

"I can’t change the world by myself," Rossetti said. "But I’d love to know that my work made people review their privileges and be more open to understanding and respecting one another."

Carol Rossetti is a global treasure. Seriously.

Tumblr: spreading the world apart, one group at a time.

THIS is the shit that bothers me with tumblr

when social correctness literally loops back around to bite its own ass

one more thing: I was in Egypt a couple of months back and had learned to speak a bit Egyptian Arabic, just to know my way around and also because that language is possibly the most beautiful in the world. Literally every Egyptian thought that that was more than ok and they were actually glad that I had learned a bit about their culture before coming there. And then I met a few Americans who thought that I was appropriating the Egyptian culture by speaking Arabic, wearing a headscarf as protection against the sun (in the desert. where it was so windy that one could not possibly wear a hat without running after it every few minutes. I didn’t even wear it as a hijab, it’s just very, very practical.) and most of all, by dressing conservatively (no shorts, knees covered, shoulders covered, long sleeves and trousers, over ankle height boots). All of that while they themselves wore clothes that would make anyone blush and that even quite offended some of my Egyptian colleagues. I just don’t understand it.

So this happened at Subway the other day

  • Me wearing my Pizza John shirt at subway:
  • Sandwich Artist: Who's that guy?
  • Me: Um... John Green.
  • Sandwich Artist: I've heard that name before. Is he like running for president?
  • Me: No.. He wrote some books. You've probably heard of The Fault In Our Stars.
  • Sandwich Artist: oh yeah. That thing . Well he should run for president. I'd vote for him, since I take it from your shirt he's a pizza fan. I'm pro pizza.
