Canadian music festival takes huge step against Native appropriation

Follow micdotcom 

From their announcement:

For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.

We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.

Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.

Niiiiiiice

WOW

We all like to talk about that “Running like Naruto" phase that all dorky weaboo kids go trough, but what we don not talk enough about is the later “Sitting and eating like L" phase that all dorky weaboo teenagers go trough

He who fights with monsters should be careful he doesn’t become a monster himself. Unless that makes him more effective at fighting monsters. Like he becomes a badass werewolf who knows how to use a sword and has magic armor. That’d be so rad.

I'm watching Sailor Moon for the first time and at this point (sailor moon s) the only one of the inner senshi I can really see as straight is Minako, but even then, I don't know. They seem like a bunch of bi girls, but maybe that's just wishful thinking. How do you see them?

They’re all queer. Minako may come off as straight in the anime, but in the manga she is queer as fuck. Here’s how I see them.

Usagi- bi (I was gonna say pan, but actually I do think she finds different things attractive in men, women and inbetween) and potentially eventually polyamorous

Rei- open homoromantic asexual in the manga and PGSM and probably Crystal, closeted (but will eventually come out) lesbian in the 90s anime

Ami- biromantic ace (or maybe just bi- hard to say without more evidence)

Mako- bi- tends to favor boys, but when she crushes on a girl, she crushes hard (see: Ami and Haruka)

Minako- pansexual

Haruka and Michiru- lesbian space princesses

Setsuna- bi- equal level crush on Serenity and Endymion

Hotaru- lesbian

Chibiusa- bi like mama

Why do you think that they are ALL queer…?

How is Usagi bi? She isn’t in love with Haruka or Seiya (and even doesn’t know that Seiya is a girl until pretty late in the 90’s anime).
Rei has something close to a relationship with a man in the old anime (not saying anything about the other stuff…).
How do you get Ami’s vibes…? From where…? And how is she romnatically connected to Makoto?
Also I don’t think that admiring a woman (what you count as a “crush”) determines one sexuality (Makoto’s admiration for Haruka).
Why is Minako pansexual? (In the manga she has something for Rei, in the old anime she’s into boys - or do you consider her crush on Yaten as evidence?)
Setsuna has a crush on Endymion - that one’s true. But she just respects her queen… That doesn’t count as a crush.
Why is Hotaru a lesbian? Because she is close to Chibiusa…? Is that also the reason why you count Chibiusa as bisexual? Being close to a person also doesn’t determine your sexuality…


I don’t think that making people more queer than they are is better than making queer people heterosexual…

the better question is, why the fuck do you care about my headcanons? Do not follow my blog if you’re going to bother me with your heteronormative bullshit.

and you’re right, Usagi is so completely straight, there is no evidence she’s bi.

She completely platonically gets off on lingerie clad friends groping her breast

image

Minako is doing some really heteorsexual boob groping in her most heterosexual outfit too. 

True, Usagi is known for going on buses specifically to check out hot girls, then getting hearts in her eyes and following them off the bus bc in her words “she’s so pretty”

image

How on earth could anyone read that as queer?

image

Note the official translation had her saying “I’ll forgive anything if it’s a pretty girl” or “I’ll do anything a pretty girl tells me to” something that people would be JUST SILLY to think is a sign Usagi is attracted to pretty girls.

And there was totally never the slightest sign she was attracted to Haruka

image

how heterosexually her heart pounds and she swoons slightly as she prepares for haruka to kiss her, offering no r

image

Usagi completely heterosexually had a dream about Haruka kissing her after it happened and woke up flushed and feeling like she’d cheated on Mamoru, which I’m not sure why she’d think that. considering how straight she is.

image

In the anime, she was stalked Haruka for an entire episode and asked if she had a girlfriend in a heterosexual way, was head over heels about the idea of dancing with her in a heterosexual way, and the other girls swooned and were jealous of usagi for dancing with her in a heterosexual way.

And you’re right! Rei had a guy who has a crush on her in the anime! It’s true that she said outright she didn’t have any feelings for him and simply admired his devotion to her in her R episode with Koan, but we all know women aren’t allowed to decide whether they want to be in a relationship with a guy who likes him. If a guy likes them, they are OBLIGATED to return their feelings! And Rei definitely wasn’t know to have really gay moments with Usagi.

image

and it’s not like Usagi ever teased her about possibly being gay, or that she tried to hide an interest in attractive women.

image

I’m such a silly, where do I get this stuff.

And she comes off as so hetero in the manga. Definitely nothing ever implied there.

image

nooooope. Nothing implied with Minako either (ps i did say Minako might come off as straight in the anime- however, since her anime character wasn’t as developed, i tend to fill in gaps with her manga and pgsm characterization.)

definitely they weren’t super queer in PGSM or anything either.

image

image

image

(don’t think being “they type who doesn’t like boys” means Rei isn’t straight. It’s a new type of straightness we haven’t identified but we’re working hard)

And yeah, that Makoto and her platonic fascination with Ami’s butt, that she doesn’t take her eyes off for a full minute

image

And how could I read Chibiusa and Hotaru’s friendship as anything but platonic? I mean, Hotaru totally platonically fondling Chibiusa’s naked chest.

image

totally platonically gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes. while naked. Foreheads touching.image

this completely platonic scene

image

Hotaru may have never shown any interest in boys, but you’re right, i should read her as straight regardless.

how could anyone think that was gay, with that phrasing. Especially since Mamoru watches on and describes it as “giving his daughter away as a bride”. Platonically.

I’m so sorry that I, a silly, stupid queer woman, dared try to read any of these characters as queer. Everyone is straight until proven otherwise, you’re right. You’ve shown me the way with your hetero wisdom.

(guess what? Even if this wasn’t all true? It wouldn’t fucking matter. I can read characters however I want, and no one needs “evidence” they are not straight. Straight should not be the fucking default, and queer people can look for representation and read relationships as romantic or platonic. You can bet if they were het, none of these relationships would be read as platonic. And there is a much evidence for a crush on Serenity for Pluto as there is for Endymion- neither are outright confirmed in the text of the manga, just “admiration”. Naoko says Setsuna has “adulterous” feelings which could refer to BOTH OF THEM (I doubt that’s what she MEANT, but she didn’t say anything concrete, so guess what? I can interpret it as I want). So get the hell out of here with your assumptions).

(Also I read Haruka as genderqueer in the manga. I hope that makes you REALLY upset).

Yo every time i see NASCAR or Days of Thunder I think of her. Tia Norfleet… at 24 years of age she is the 1st and only Black Woman to Earn and recieve a NASCAR racing License. I felt like it was appropriate to write this article about Tia not to support the reverse or hidden notion of being subserviant that comes along with being the “1st black” or the “Only Black” something which we (SanCopha League) don’t agree with or support, but to show the strength of a Young Beautiful Black Woman who overcame some odds and chose to be brave enough to take role that has to be filled on the road to “Progress” however small in racial inequality. Tia chases her Dreams in a historically Bias and racist sport like NASCAR where they have been constanly taken to trial for there racist rules and behavior when it comes to participants… I never heard growing up about any woman wanting to race cars let alone working hard to actually do it and compete at its highest level. So I was pleased when I read about her and find out she the daughter of a NASCAR driver Bobby Norfleet and was inspired to be the same… Tia inspires young children by axample teaching them to chase their dreams and not be afraid to be great… Tia’s Passion for the sport is huge clearly as she worked through many low level racing Associations proving herself as she defeated competition at every level or style of racing to get where she is at now…Tia also does communtity work to aid safe driving in many southern states as well… Tia Norfleet, a show of Black Excellence and Perserverance.

I’ve been drawing Sock so much lately. I guess you could say I’m slightly obsessed with him. I’m still having trouble with drawing bodies. This was really fun to draw!

What a cutie!!
