but what is your definition of “changing the world”? What part of the world? How much change would you be satisfied with?
people are always changing it for the worse tbh
They do seem to be more successful at it.
the whole savior industrial complex is based onmaking everything worse !

I was at Hot Topic and saw this cool tshirt for some band or something called Bring Me the Horizon and idk what bring me the horizon is and don’t really care but the shirt is cute so i’ll wear it
This was an experiment. See how people started getting mad at me for “buying” a Bring Me The Horizon shirt, when I said I really knew nothing about them? How I said I bought it simply because I thought it was cute? Completely disregarding who the band was?
This is how people from other cultures feel when you purchase and wear garb from their culture with no knowledge of what that garb symbolizes and means. If you wear or use something for the wrong reasons, people get mad.
This has got to be by far one of the best ways to explain cultural appropriation to people.
K: I kinda want to input that with actual cultural appropriation (meaning not this band metaphor), people have actually been shamed and killed and had their rights stripped from them for even possessing that cultural garb, so it further justifies their anger when people not of that culture see it as a fashion item to wear.
