No it’s cool. Keep perpetuating a stereotyped, culturally-appropriated image of NDN women as hypersexual. It’s not like we’re 3.5 times more likely to be raped or anything (80% of which are committed by non-native rapists)
DEPICTIONS LIKE THIS ARE HURTFUL.
WAR BONNETS ARE NOT A FASHION STATEMENT.
Cultural appropriation is not beautiful.
It is your choice to reblog racist, appropriative images, you don’t have to do it.
Please stop tagging pictures like this ‘Native American’; they have nothing to do with NDN people.

My Culture is not a Trend
Here’s a quick checklist for whether it’s ok to wear a war bonnet (even a cheap imitation like this):
Was it placed onto your head by an elder/legitimate authority figure from a select number of plains nations because you personally achieved something so great that it is worthy of that kind of honor? (corrolary: If yes to the above, are you currently wearing it in an appropriate ceremonial fashion/setting? Like are you at a powwow or speaking with the president?)
If you answered ‘no’ then IT IS NOT OK.
Any more than it would be ok to buy a decorated veteran’s purple heart that he had to pawn and put -that- on for a sexy/edgy/hip photo shoot. It’s that kind of disrespect, on top of the slap in the face that is cultural appropriation in general.
Please take this picture down, and don’t post more like it. When you see your friends and associates and tumblr followers doing the same kind of thing, speak out against it. This is racist and hurtful.

So much perfection together 

See what happens when I troll the Ian Somerhalder tag? Well, can’t say I don’t hate it. 

This works in any fandom of mine. Yes. And so useful for real life too. I approve.

Josephine Baker was the first African American female to star in a motion picture, to integrate an American concert hall, and to become a world-famous entertainer.  Not only was Josephine beautiful, but she brought incredible amounts of change to the US for African Americans.  After growing up being abused by her white female employer, Josephine went to to live as a child of the streets, using street performances to support herself.  She soon became the “highest paid chorus girl in vaudeville”.  Josephine Baker is as timeless as her Civil Rights efforts and for that we find her as sexy as her performances are famous.

I love her!

I see a resemblance to Maya
