cicithestar asked: I don't understand why you white people think not brushing your nasty, limp, matted hair qualifies as dreads

I don’t understand why some people care that much about what I identify my hair as.

thesamedreadfultypewriter asked: People are actually lurking on your blog, waiting like wolves to see your next responses. They're kinda pathetic, really.

Yes, it’s sad really when they don’t have anything better to do than sending anon hate based on how I look.

per7ect asked: WHAT IS WITH ALL THE HATE?? Even if they're offended by dreads or feel it's cultural appropriation, is anon hate REALLY going to solve anything?? Harassing someone because of a personal choice isn't going to help like wtf if it bothers you that much just ignore it. Anyway, your blog and hair are great, don't worry.

Thank you friend! Yeah, when they write aggressively and are unable to have a grown up conversation, I can’t even take it as serious as they want me to. I’m sorry if people are offended, but no matter how someone look, some people will always have a problem with it.

Anonymous asked: ...just saying but it's not all black people that say that ridiculous shit about white people having dreads. I'm black and I think yours looks amazing.

Thank you! I am aware that there’s not many that actually have these views and write these things to people. I myself have only gotten compliments for my hair otherwise, except for when a small group on tumblr suddenly decided to hit me in the face. Before that, I had never EVER heard anything about dreads being racist..

It’s easy to feel worthless and hard to feel adequate. Today I am happy to feel adequate and less sad than usual. I hope you all know you are worth something. I don’t smile often enough, but here’s a smile for all of you. Take care.

The racist honky is back! Too bad she still looks like she twisted her matted hair with horse manure.- Jess

Calling someone racist based on what they look like is really ignorant. I can’t believe I actually have to say this again, but
wearing dreads does not make me racist.

Yes it does. When black people are constantly out here saying it offends them when WP wear dreads but you do it anyone it’s disrespectful and racist

You see, I have never understood why people get offended by a look. Dreads are not a “black people thing”. They have been around all over the world for so very long. Vikings wore dreads and they did not do it to offend black people which a big majority of them didn’t even know existed. Don’t you dare call me racist because I am too lazy to fix my hair every morning. I have knitted hair, it’s not like I wear a swastika on my head!

So you decided to appropriate a hairstyle that many POC do as a religious practice in hopes to bringing them closer to god, because you were too lazy to do your hair in the morning? Lol you’re right. That’s not racist/disrespectful/disgusting/shameful/ridiculous at all white girl. & wow you’re don’t have a swastika on your head heres a fucking cookie. & it’s NOT just a look. It has significance and deep meaning too a lot of people.  

I am not claiming to be part of any religion or spiritual thing. With that kind of logic, we should all ban people shaving their heads because it could offend buddhist monks and hare krishna, no one should be allowed to sit on their knees because some people do it to get closer to a diety and maybe we should take away singing in choires for everyone outside of churches because it’s often a churchy thing. If they believe they get closer to a god by wearing dreads, that’s good for them, but do I drag them away from this by wearing dreads myself? Not really. Also, dreads has been around for a very long time in so many different cultures. I am a white atheist with dreads and there’s nothing wrong with it.

Anonymous asked: Black people do not get dreds naturally, white people do, just because you designed yours does not make you racist. And if cultural appropriation is such a big deal, BP need to stop straightening their hair.

I think you mean the other way around with the natural dread thingie, but yeah. Mine started dreading by themselves because my hair was pretty damaged, but because it’s not natural for my hair quality when not damaged, I’m not allowed to let it dread? That’s just weird.

Anonymous asked: you said "This has nothing to do with what it could become, it is what it is at the moment and that is everything that counts." so why bother removing cancer at all, since it is has nothing to do with what it could become (i.e death)

That is not at all what I meant by that phrase. Feels like some people don’t even try to understand.

Anonymous asked: Nobody ever said that dreads were for one certain group of people. All of these idiots only think that because that's what they are used to. There are so many people of so many ethnicities who have dreads and nobody gives a shit. That's like saying that black people can't get Starbucks because it's a stereotypical white thing to do. Your hair looks great, good for you :)

Exactly! Thank you!!

Anonymous asked: I, personally, am not a fan of dreads. However, what those people are saying is complete bullshit. Having your hair like that is racist? How is that even possible?! I think they look good on you. If you got it, flaunt it honey

Everyone has a different taste and that is very much okay, because we still accept other tastes and styles. But calling me racist based on my hair is just weird and superficial. I don’t get it. Thank you!

Anonymous asked: Racism towards white people exists? Is your race systematically oppressed? Your ancestors killed and destroyed black culture, and now you're appropriating it? I swear to god, you white people are the spawn of the fucking devil.

First of all, my ancestors did not kill black culture. Just because one group of white people did something horrible in the past and other groups of white people continue to do horrible stuff does not mean that every white person belongs to those groups. I have traced my family history back to the 1500’s, and during the slavery, my ancestors were simple farmers in Sweden. Calling me an oppressor simply for being white is racist.

bi0logi-ca-l asked: racism the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races. prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior. This being said, saying dreads is only acceptable for one specific race, would be racist.

Exactly, thank you! Racism means discriminating a race no matter what race and no matter how much oppression there have been in the past. There is racism against white people. Acknowledging this does not mean I am not aware that racism mostly happens towards other races than whites.
