Totally worth reading the whole article, especially the part on Tumblr and gender.

did I reblog this??? so what.
It was filmed in Kuujjuak and the dogs in it are owned by an actual dog sledder, they did their research. The actors are mainly from Nunavut and they had to learn the Nunavik dialect to make their lines more seamless since Inuit have varied words. They also consulted Innu people to be as true to the cultures as they could. They hired first nations women who know how to sew and consulted elders on how to work with animal hide the way it was done before settlers. The amount of effort put into the movie is great and I can’t wait to see it.
a real fear i have is that people will think i am flirting with them when really i am just being honest and/or affectionate
It’s a real fear because I don’t want men to take it as an advance and an excuse to flirt themselves, because if they think you’ve been flirting, and then you tell them to leave you alone, they get really angry. Nope, I don’t need to be made to feel unsafe in that way.
I think I accidentally came off like I was flirting with someone the other day, and it was in a situation where flirting would have been really inappropriate, and I’m still stressing out about it because I know how invaded and gross I would feel if someone were flirting with me in that circumstance…I’m just so awkward and don’t know how to friend.
