As a Former Barista, Why You Should Ignore the Starbucks Red Cup “Controversy”

My Open Letter to Kylie Jenner about Her Eskimo Halloween Costume

Screen Shot 2015-11-02 at 6.25.37 PM

Dear Kylie Jenner,

I read that you dressed up as an “Eskimo” for Halloween.  Predictable, people freaked out, saying you were politically incorrect and — wait for it — offensive:

On Saturday, Jenner shared a video of herself decked out in her “Eskimo” costume that she wore to a party on Friday night. Never mind the fact that “Eskimo” is generally considered a slur, the Inuit and Alaska Natives are real people, not costumes. 

KJWell, as a person born and raised in Alaska (born on Alaska Day, no less) who is also part Yup’ik, let me say this.

I’m not offended!

In fact, I’m flattered that you think Eskimos looks this chic.

I think “cultural appropriation” Halloween guides are a joke, I think people need to lighten up, and I think you look great!

Over 150 Missouri high school students voiced their displeasure about a transgender teen using the girls’ locker room by walking out of class.

Students at Hillsboro High School staged a two-hour walkout Monday over 17-year-old Lila Perry, a student who has identified as a female since she was 13, using the girls’ locker room during gym class.

The school offered Perry a gender-neutral bathroom, which she turned down.
