So I went to the Anarchist book fair in SF (best thing ever by the way) and commented in a post to Anarchists (another livejournal group) how lovely it was to see community, comrades and dreadies. Well most of what I got back was "white kids with dreads are the problem", "stupid white kids with dreads" and some totally horrid websites like this one....
I cannot believe how ignorant and misinformed this site is.
I responded with my best efforts to show how pointless it is to judge other people and how it wouldn't help bring Anarchists together but to split us up. I was seriously upset and sad and am so disappointed. I cannot believe people actually think this way.
I wonder how these people wear their hair. Are any of them bald? Is that a culture steal from Buddhist monks? I wonder. How silly all of this but it really upsets me to see such an ignorant view on personal choice.
