PORK could’ve been so cool. somebody responded on that blog post that people need to get over this. how about you just choose a different theme that isn’t fucking racist? wouldn’t that take an equal amount of energy?

Check out the unfortunate drama at Pork Magazine.  People are obviously pissed over their lazy venture into headdresses and warpaint, and they give everyone a charming response:
PORK is fueled by Camp & Kitsch. Both of these aesthetics require a certain degree of sophistication & a certain degree of “not taking things so seriously.” PORK does not believe in cultural ownership or the concept of “genuine”. Things are either done well or not done well. When we are pestered by special interest groups advocating their world view & that our magazine somehow conforms to their world view, I immediately wonder, “What have you done for me lately?” (http://internetpork.com/?p=522)
So sacred traditions of my dying culture are reduced to kitsch?  Easy for a fucking white person to say.  You just lost a potential subscriber - and I’m sure many more.  Pro tip: come up with a better public relations strategy to deal with the criticism instead of being ignorant assholes.
To those who say the critics need to get a life: I have a fulfilling and robust life that is filled with amazing friends, family, and activism.  I work my ass off and cut loose at shows and parties just like you.  So don’t pull that insulting bullshit just because I take a few minutes of my time on the internet to call you out.

I think the worst thing about all this bullshit is the responses from Pork. Look at their twitter. Ugh, just shut the fuck up and admit that you were wrong and this shoot is racist instead of being all “This is supposed to be ~campy~ and ~kitschy~. I don’t care about you, PC police! So I’m going to post 10,000 more updates telling you how I don’t care about what you say!”
I’m sick of hipsters appropriating Native American culture. And, fat people: as long as we continue to alienate fat people of color, the fat acceptance movement is going to go nowhere.

Friendly reminder, to this day and to my knowledge, there has still never been an apology or any accountability for the racism displayed by PORK magazine and those who run it and facilitated this photoshoot. If anything their racism really shined through in how they responded to the call out.
I don’t care if it was 3 years ago. I don’t like people reblogging and welcoming racists into a space where the fat acceptance movement and community is already shit at providing representation for fat people of color.
Because I’m still seeing them on my dash pretty regularly.
And for those who didn’t know, now you do.

This is like the cutest thing ever. It’s from the gif-set I reblogged.

Taking its first steps, and after successfully doing so, the chick goes “Yay!”

"Each and every one of us has the capacity to be an oppressor. I want to encourage each and every one of us to interrogate how we might be an oppressor, and how we might be able to become liberators for ourselves and each other."
