The bindi is arguably the most visually fascinating of all forms of body decoration. Hindus attach great importance to this ornamental mark on the forehead between the two eyebrows — a spot considered a major nerve point in human body since ancient times. Also loosely known as ‘tika’, ‘pottu’, ‘sindoor’, ‘tilak’, ‘tilakam’, and ‘kumkum’, a bindi is usually a small or a big eye-catching round mark made on the forehead as adornment. The area between the eyebrows, the sixth chakra known as the ‘agna’ meaning ‘command’, is the seat of concealed wisdom. It is the centre point wherein all experience is gathered in total concentration. According to the tantric cult, when during meditation the latent energy (‘kundalini’) rises from the base of the spine towards the head, this ‘agna’ is the probable outlet for this potent energy.
I have no idea if Sophia is interested in Hinduism or Tantric meditation or knows anything about what the bindi represents. I’m guessing she probably just thinks it’s cute since she’s posing for her life and holding a drink. LOL I really do wish white people would stop looking at people of color as exotic creatures with fabulous accessories. Just because you’re ignorant about something (i.e. the culture, history and traditions of ALL poc), doesn’t mean it’s non-existent. And yeah, I doubt the newly minted Sophia worshippers will call out the inappropriateness of it. Some will probably “exact” it. Most of this fandom tends to fall back on white privilege when things get uncomfortably “ethnic”. :/
tbh i think straight girls appreciate girls more than straight boys do
