for the record, readers, i expect men to hold feminist values, that is non-negotiable. i do not, however, think they are entitled to call themselves feminists, ever. they didn’t do the work, and they are still responsible for so much, we can reconvene on the issue when they’re done. i don’t give a shit how understanding your boyfriend thinks he is, he hasn’t done the work.
Lilo and Stitch presenting an accurate representation of Hawaiians perspective on luaus held by tourists.
#what’s sad about this is that this is actually what Hawaiians had to do when the western culture took over #a luau was a sacred practice #until the westerners took the concept and had the audacity to change it into a time to stuff your face with food and put on grass skirts and coconut bras and dance the hula #and when they had these events, they didn’t even let actual Hawaiian people in #so to make money to take care of themselves, the Hawaiians were hired to work in these disgraceful events to clean up after the tourists like slaves only to make less than a buck #so good job disney for doing your fucking research and educating these people #sadly, this still goes on even until today and it makes me sick
