This semester I went to the White Privilege Conference in Madison, WI for my honors seminar about examining privilege. I made a poster about the behaviors of particular white female musicians who appropriate other cultures as a means of identity and sexualize/objectify WOC as a means of displaying sexual agency and social power. All under the guise of “empowerment”.
This is my take on the knowledge I found through seminar and readings, (esp. online articles) so in no way do I claim these ideas or concepts as my own.
pointing out shitty behavior doesn’t mean you hate someone you can stan for a celebrity and also recognize they fuck up from time to time, what isn’t helpful to them or anyone else is trying to excuse the behavior based on “supporting them no matter what”
