Cultural Appropriation and Racism
From this point forward, I will make note of cultural appropriation and racism in makeups made on Face Off. I will do this to the best of my knowledge (and my knowledge may change, of course - life is a process of learning and unlearning). I will attempt to find and provide sources. I will not be perfect, and I will do my best to point it out, but do note that as I am white, I am not the person to defer to.
Anyone and everyone who is knowledgeable on the subjects - that is, people who are part of the cultures being appropriated from and such - are absolutely free to send a word my way. That would be very much appreciated. You can do it via the archive proper or my main blog (currently apolloguises) via ask or submit (I believe both of them are turned on, as is Anon, but please let me know if they’re not!).
A few ultra-examples of what I’m referring to are Gage’s self-makeup from Season 1 and Miranda’s dark elf from Season 5.
I will resume posting soon.
