Petition to
Tiktok and Tiktok Australia

Why this petition matters

Started by Mads Bee

Morning everyone,

There are 2 accounts on tiktok that are promoting cultural appropriation especially towards the Aboriginal peoples of Australia, I have created this petition as people who who disrespect cultures that they do not belong to, must never be allowed to their toxicity on social media, as it can be quite harmful to those that belong to certain cultures. 
In Aboriginal culture we have lores strictly for men and lores strictly for women. 

Our lores have been in affect for thousands of years and continue to be in affect. In Aboriginal culture we very sacred instruments (certain instruments played by men, and certain instruments played by women). One of Aboriginal cultures sacred lore is that women are forbidden to play the Yidaki (didgeridoo). 

what I have been seeing lately on social media is that woman who don’t belong to Aboriginal culture has taken it upon themselves to meddle with one of our most sacred instruments (the Yidaki), by not only disrespecting it but also sexualising it as well. This is extremely harmful towards our Aboriginal culture, I ask that you please sign this petition as people should not be appropriating cultures that they themselves do not belong to
