I just had a long conversation with my mother about bindis

my mom is SUPER (hardcore, even) traditional and an extremely religious hindu, and when I told her that a lot of people (mostly white people and some indians) get offended when they see white people wearing bindis, her response was:

"What? why?! it’s to look pretty! it’s a sticker. that’s silly."

goodnight.
