Re: “Hipster Invasion

hey, anonymous white str8 bourgie boy, can you READ? no one in that article is suggesting a "world with no art" and someone should slap your silly face for that intentionally obtuse hyperbole. art is not some capital A, tortured vision bullshit, but when it's treated like it is, it becomes problematic in an array of ways including those described above. if you really give a shit about contributing to a world in which "people are celebrated, celebrating, making, doing", YOU will get your lazy, reactionary ass to work on recognizing the complexity of privilege and the responsibilities we all have to examine our own and STOP pretending reality is only what we've noticed so far. perhaps once you've done so, your newly-freed-from-your-ass head can be wrapped around the vampiric realities of "the context of the neighborhood is everything". then maybe i'll be interested to hear YOUR answer to "what are you creating?"
