My family is Unitarian Universalist, my girls are very uncomfortable with the “cross on everything” trend. They think it would be inappropriate for them to wear the clothes, which bums them out then the top’s really cute. But their convictions supersede fashion. I think if folk are careful they are not wearing sacred symbols they don’t understand, subscribe to or have earned, that it is truly just decorative it should not cause offense. But that requires people being sensitive. I’ve spoken with Indian women about bindis, some are symbolic of religion and some are mere decoration. Non-Indians should know the difference before wearing them.

Omfg shut up, literally everything is “offensive” nowadays and the funny thing is that the people whining and complaining about it aren’t even within the religion/culture who wears it. You all get worked up about the silliest little things.

Okay some people find it offensive because, let’s face it, it is a cultural symbol. But it’s not like Kendall, Selena and other celebs are wearing it to make fun of it. They actually find it cool and trendy and I don’t see a problem in that.

Dear Hollywood Life,
It is beyond despicable that you would refer to a bindi as a trend.
A bindi isn’t a “fun accessory”. It is a cultural symbol that has a deep meaning within Hinduism.
This article is promoting cultural appropriation, and you all should be DISGUSTED with yourselves.

This article is offensive. You cannot ask people if they think wearing a cultural symbol is a do or a don’t. And you also cannot tell an oppressed group of people that they shouldn’t be offended by cultural appropriation. Bindis weren’t a “trend” when they were used to racialize Indians. You cannot suddenly decide that something that represented a “culturally inferior” group of people is now hip and cool. This article barely mentions WHY Indians are offended by celebrities wearing bindis for fashion. The author of this article is part of the reason why these religious symbols continue to be worn like nothing. Thank you, for perpetuating cultural appropriation and the racialization of Indians in the US.

They try too hard to be edgy and they are self-absorbed pricks. They think they are so hot that they can wear anything to make a statement but in reality they look like idiots.

Also, it’s not a new thing…this has been around for centuries. It’s no one’s right to “loathe” this accessory, especially since it’s a cultural accessory. It’s no one’s right to loathe something that’s a part of someone else’s culture.

First of all, it’s not a “trend” and you cannot consider it “a fashion must-have” and nor is it “tribal”. Bindis are a cultural accessory; it’s a big part of the Indian culture. So with that being said, this cultural appropriation needs to stop.

This whole thing is sick. How can you call this a “fashion must have?” When will people realize that appropriating and exploiting cultures is disgusting and just not right? Demeaning a culture’s identity and claiming it as “fashion” is one of the largest flaws in modern society. I feel sick after reading this. It blows my mind that people are ignorant to write something like this and not find anything wrong with what is happening. Stop using culture’s identities as accessories!

It’s disgusting that a piece apart of a culture and a religion is used as a fashion accessory by people that may or may not even know its importance and meaning. I think you should wear a bindi for all the RIGHT reasons but as a fashion accessory?

It is disgusting that this has, “…made it to musical festival list of must-haves.”
I agree entirely with Dan12. Regardless of how “amazing” she looks.
There are plenty of ways to “look amazing” with out being hurtful or without trivializing a culture.
I have found that it is hard for some people to comprehend the value of something “sacred” as there is very little, that on a whole, the western society actually considers sacred.

It is still as inappropriate for Selena and others to wear a bindi as it was the first time Selena wore one. It is objectionable to people who are Hindu, it is still what is called “cultural appropriation.” That is–using a sacred symbol by someone from another culture for style or to make momey, etc

Hollywood Life, you were critical of Selena the first time she wore a bindi. Why aren’t you critical now? And why don’t you criticize Selena for doing something so objectionable? Selena should have known better after the first time.
