Counterpoint, for what it’s worth.

Now I’m really signing off.

Wil-

What makes this person the ambassador of the entirety of shamanism culture? The number of people who agree on letting you use the term doesn’t excuse the fact that you, as a non-practicing person of any shamanistic religion, run into problems when you use a specific term that is culturally theirs. Especially considering that they may be an oppressed culture.

Also, the term “oppressor” is given when a member of a privileged class is… exerting their opinion on something that isn’t theirs to give, let’s say. It’s not your place to really explain yourself, because the situation still stands that it’s not your term to use.

What I am saying is, stop being reactionary and start listening.
