@WorldHijabDay Yea, no, I don't believe that for a second. I've DONE this and not just for a single day. I observed Islamic dress code for 2 weeks in 2002. I wanted to try and understand more about the people that produced the men who murdered my friend.
I covered even in my own home when there was a man not related to me. I wore Hijab and made certain my arms were covered and my clothing was loose. And you know what? It made me feel like I was worthless.
The ONLY positive that came of this experiment was that there were some younger people that ALSO lost friends/family on 9-11 and I was able to show them that (while I was not muslim) not everyone in islamic garb was a terrorist.

THREAD. I am surprised to see a "senior" anthropologist confuse the difference b/t moral and cultural relativism. Let's discuss and find some important examples! Anthros Let's talk.
2/ An argument was made that it is ok when discussing non-normative "sub-subaltern" cultures based on the principles of "cultural relativism" one should not "judge the judgers." @transscribe
This came up in a debate in med/psych anthro over the weekend when a Whyte American prof used the word "hermaphrodite" instead of "intersex" in a global call for conference papers and book chapters. Their rationale is in India this term is used.

THREAD:
Something that really is bothering me as a Moroccan Amazigh is that neither those accusing #Madonna of #culturalappropriation nor those defending her are actually talking about this headpiece and its history.
Read below for a little but real sneakpeek of it 👇
A lot of Berber headpieces are common to different Berber tribes from the same region or even from different regions.
This particular headpiece is only worn by one small confederation of Berbers called Ait Baamrane
They are found in the vicinity of the city of Sidi Ifni and composed by very few tribes and multiple clans. It is impossible for a Berber woman wearing this to be mistaken for a Berber from any other place by a fellow Berber.

The capitalist argument that there will always be a need for garbage-men and toilet cleaners, is very telling on the issue of racism. Racism is not just affecting the ones living next to us, but effects trans-nationally. #marxism #racism #capitalism #intersectionality
Racism is a cornerstone of outsourcing labor to the lower classes and the lower ethnicities both within the exploiting country, and outside in economically weaker countries. In capitalism, each economic class, ethnicity class, and sex class is assigned labor roles.
Racism serves to keep the people within and ethnicity class in their assigned labor roles. Just the same as misogyny serves to keep women in assigned labor roles (overlapping in ethnicity and the same sex).

1) Un petit guide sur les #SocialJusticeWarriors (#SJW) suite aux événements de #Tolbiac et tout le marasme qui s’en est suivi, parce que je suis assez étonnée de la méconnaissance des gens en #France et sur #Twitter. Il reste central aux #US depuis quelques années. (à dérouler)
2) Car oui, comme beaucoup de mouvements culturels celui-ci nous vient directement des US et du #Canada, et met la lutte militante pour le progrès social en son centre, tjs sous le prisme d’un rapport de force à une minorité : #genre, #handicap, #racisme, #sexisme, etc…
3) Donc si t’es twittos #anglophone tu vas sûrement rigoler, parce que tu t’es déjà retrouvé embourbé dans des échanges impossibles et que tu connais exactement le sujet… Tu pourras donc passer ton chemin, car tu n’apprendras rien de spé.
