This is a stupid question and I wish I didn't need to ask it. So...I am white and I have this birthmark on my forehead. It's definitely pretty pronounced and obvious, and I have had more than one (white) person tell me I'm culturally appropriating the bindi by...I don't know? Not covering it up? I'm PRETTY sure they're full of shit. I really felt like I needed to get an actual Indian person's opinion though, before I write these people off as being a total joke.
You are totally right — This is a stupid question. Next.
