I have PROOF.
They look ridiculous. And most of this has nothing to do with academia.
They’ve watched every Youtube video saying how to ‘look expensive’ and it’s pure cringe. Like, rich people can afford to put down the Oreos. Rich people don’t eat their feelings.
Yes, the bow makes you feminine and you’ll definitely get a rich white husband…..
I love the way the turtleneck makes the manjaw really POP and the piggy looking nose from that angle, adorable.
Was all on that tag.
When non-whites try to dress in a white supremacist sort of way, it looks ridiculous.
They’re trying to deconstruct the aesthetic to rewrite the history associated with it (see their BS below).
^From the good part of tumblr.
It’s like Halloween costumes for some Tim Burton shit.
He’s standing near books, therefore r smart.
The thots and the fatties are using it, this is an optics issue whether y’all like it or no.
Imagine being that thirsty you stand in front of the ocean with your Third World starving Ethiopian aesthetic.
You are never going to look like this.
Compare. Never ever.
It’s like competing with a god. You can’t win.
There is an appeal unique to our flesh that cannot be stolen.
First they stole our TVs, now they steal aesthetics.
Next they’re doing WE WUZ KEATS
“I would just like to say that I am a (decently) large dark academia blog and am also a woman of colour, the idea that dark academia is created for/by white people (particularly white men) is absolutely hilarious to me. I know for a fact that my ancestors wrote some of the best poetry, music, made some of the most groundbreaking discoveries, which were later copied by European men who received all the praise.
We are academia and anyone who says otherwise can kiss my pretentious ass, don’t let these little moodboards fool you.” – theparistimes
Look at the WAP song, now back to me. The WAP song, now back to me. Your ‘culture’ is pure whore.
It’s a culture of STDs and baby momma crotchfruit.
Shit group IQ, shitty artistic production. Sucks to be you, wap-wap.
POC is still really funny because in optics (the academic study) black is NOT a colour, but a shade.
You are shading yourself.
White people are the coloured ones, with the widest phenotype too. (Biology is also a study, like Darwin).
It’s like the hipster glasses “I’m such a nerd” thing plus cheap 80s romantic goth.
Please make it stop. It’s the new rawr. Proof enclosed:
You might say this ‘doesn’t matter’ but aesthetic is ours, that’s our culture swirling down the toilet of crap appropriation.
Should take the manosphere and alt whatever about five years to catch up to my sentiments again.
I await your responses, gentlemen.
