This is so stupid and it’s not helping anybody. First of all, your little sign that says “please stop confusing us with Muslims" is only contributing to Islamophobic rhetoric that is getting both Sikhs and Muslims beat up and killed. Second of all, why is "Muslims" italicized like it’s some kind of dirty word. Sikhs should be standing by Muslims to combat this kind of discrimination, not pointing their fingers at them and contributing to the problem. Do better.

Okay so my ex/ex friend told me he was going on a date with my best friend who I drifted apart from and ge ended up being quite mean about it and saying horrible things aboit my mental illness which resulted in me blocking him. Now my best friend messaged me saying the date was never happening and he had actually called her heartless and said how she lead him on even thoygh all she did was talk on the phone to him. And now we are talking shit about him and catching up. I feel this is a perfect example of straight white boys being entitked babies and also the whole “ovaries before brovaries” thing.

Master Post on Why John Lennon is Shit
So here’s a master post of John Lennon’s shittiness. I added much more info about cultural appropriation in his music. I also submitted this to Your Fave is Problematic.
Homophobia and antisemitism
- wrote the racist song: “Woman is the ‘N-word’ of the world” (except he used the actual word not n-word) tw in link for racial slur; discussion here explaining why the song is racist (again tw for slur) post explains the song, not only uses a slur but also erases Black women, and equates sexism non-black women face with anti-blackness) (one lyric: “women is the slave to the slaves”)
- appropriating/stealing music from Black artists: stole riffs, melodies and even lyrics from Black artists, to name but a few examples: I Feel Fine from Bobby Parker; Day Tripper from Bo Diddly; and was sued for stealing Come Together from Chuck Berry; and did many covers where Black vocal styles are appropriated: Twist and Shout from Isley Brothers, Money fromBarrett Strong/Berry Gordy, Some Other Guy from Ritchie Barrett—examples go on and on
- appropriation of Indian music and culture, including the appropriation of traditional Indian instruments, spiritual/religious beliefs, perpetuating harmful stereotypes and white supremacy; examples of appropriation in music here, here, here; and this video is an example of not only appropriation of the sitar but Indian spirituality (“om” in the song Across the Universe) and in fetishizing/exoticizing spiritual practices in India

Potatoes were first grown and domesticated in Peru by the Andean/Inca people. Not in Ireland.
If you’re going to try to make a pathetic joke, at least know what you’re talking about first.

This is potentially life saving information everyone should know.
No you guys this post helped me find my cat. He was missing for almost a month and I’ve had him for over 12 years. After seeing this I put his favorite blanket he always slept on outside hoping he would smell mine or his scent and he was back the next fucking day asleep on it.
When my cat got out, we called and called for him, and then, later that night, I remembered similar advice to this, and so put his little scratching pad, which he adores, on the front porch. Not even half an hour later, I heard a thump, opened the door, and there was his big butt, meowing at me.
Important and vital
