Remember when African ethnicities were mocked for stretching their earlobes and indigenous folks for “sticking shit” through their septums , but once such practices were adopted by industrial nations during the 80’s/90’s and white folks/White punks/White hipsters started to do it, it was all cool, unique, civil and “Original”?
it’s especially important to practice this with KIDS. Kids need to know it’s ok to say no to giving auntie a hug and kiss. it’s ok to say no to getting up on stage at a children’s show or activity. it’s ok to say no. please teach your children this!
