I just heard that Kesha's performance with glow paint at SNL was "objectively offensive to indigenous peoples," and I have so many questions. Perhaps the most important: If somebody does something and nobody who is woke is there to take offense, is it actually offensive?

LOL, I explored a little further and I also found out that because the rest of her body was dark during the performance, it was a new kind of blackface. Looking for things to find offensive sounds exhausting and rather dreary.

“Objectively”? Sounds pretty subjective to me, although I didn’t major in Pre-Colonial Glow Paint of the Americas.

So this has been going on ten years now at least? I really didn't notice it when it started.

Earnest question: where are you seeking out these “outrages”? I feel like I operate in pretty liberal circles and rarely hear about these things. So my follow up: if two people complain on twitter is it really worth addressing?

I'm not seeking them out. I was watching a video while eating my dinner on worst SNL performances, and I was treated to that phrase.

Don't be highjacking 1980s She-Ra. Use the new She-Ra. She’s even got an apropos story

Haven’t seen it yet. But my question is why do you care?
