"When products from New Zealand are associated with Māori symbols, they tend to gain a higher value overseas from seeming more “authentic” and “in touch with nature”. In fact, Māori culture is considered to be more “in” overseas than in New Zealand. This prompted Aroha Mead to point out the irony of this, stating that “[i]t’s cool to be Māori overseas, but for us here, it’s a daily struggle.”"

Can we talk about how Hairspray is a story where a not-conventionally-attractive girl gets the hot guy in the end without having to Become “Pretty.” Because we need more stories like that.

It’s also story about breaking down the barriers of racism which we also need more of.

Ahhhhh ‘something’s gotta give’ is so good in the way of empowering women that are older because they are beautiful and society gears old women as ugly and unsexy and Diane Keating is amazing.
