seeing twitter furries yet again fetishize "loincloths and tribal outfits" then get upset and defensive when indigenous furs tell them that's gross and native fetishism is directly linked to assault against native people and MMIW

non-native people be fucking normal toward other cultures for once challenge


imagine living with your head so far up your ass that you think people being concerned about a very real, very serious issue that targets them specifically is just performative outrage because ~twitter~

and i can't even tell you how many times i've been told that an insensitive, toxic, or otherwise disgusting comment is something i should take "as a compliment"

fuck that noise

lol the whataboutism

look at all these examples of other non-yt peoples who've felt the pain of western white colonial miasma at one point or another in their history

they had tribes/clans, so it's ok!

or, maybe, fetishizing colonized indigenous peoples is gross and bad no matter where or who they are

ah, now he rolled out the "but it's fictional tribes" chestnut, as if that makes it ok

as if media isn't used as a tool to promote toxic mentalities

as if media and fiction aren't often employed as tools for grooming in some of the most heinous situations

@extinct this has the same energy as inventing elaborate outlandish scenarios where a guy with a guy will kill you if you don't shout the n word so its okay to say it then right

@georgespolitzer the amount of pretzeling this particular person is doing to defend someone else's fetish is bizarre

@extinct Oh my GOD the willful misinterpretation of the term "fetishizing" and then it somehow gets WORSE from there

@extinct Oh, no, it turns out it wasn't a misinterpretation of the term

That's even worse!

@witchfynder_finder yeah, less misinterpretation and just a pathological need to excuse it

@extinct Yeah I hadn't seen the first set of screenshots and then I did see them and 😬
