The ask: “I think one of the main reasons why people have this “White girl princess” attitude is because most of the really popular fairy tails originated in Europe, which is shockingly where white people are from. There are so many great fairy tails from plenty of other…

The thing about cultural appropriation is that the appropriator does not have to face the same consequences that we do for practicing our culture or faith. For them, it is an accessory that can be taken on or off at will, while for us, it is a way of life. …in a society where immigrants and communities of color are marginalized at every level, we can’t pretend that power relations do not exist when we have this conversation about appropriation. Sharing and exchanging cultural and spiritual practices is great, but it gets more complicated when we’re not all on equal footing.

“When in doubt? Always go with leather.” Girl, I am so with you.
I feel like this moment in the bar is the one that started @NYPinTA on the question of why Fae don’t understand that Bo’s aligned with humans? Balzac is kind of annoying on the level of Vex, eh.
I’d like to see a moratorium on the phrase, “This is me….” (doing whatever). The minimalist in me objects strongly.
Blonde evil fae kind of reminds me of Callisto from Xena in this field scene.
That’s all I have to say for this episode.
