"i want to get married at the taj mahal omg"
IT’S A DAMN TOMB, A MAUSOLEUM
get ur orientalist racist head out of ur ass
it’s not a palace, this isn’t aladdin and ur definitely not jasmine.
Well, I’ve heard of goths marrying on cemeteries, but if you are into that you should at least pick a mausoleum of your own culture, I guess
If I want to marry in front of the pyramids of Gizeh I don’t see why the culture or the country where I’m from have something to do.
If someone want to marry at The Escorial (where a lot of Kings and Queens of Spain are buried), it’s not my business.
And if this couple is from, oh I don’t know, Japan lets say, it’s still none of my business.
You want to marry at the Taj Mahal? Good for you. It’s important to you to know that it’s not a palace but a tomb, but still, well, good for you, beauty is beauty regardless.
In my country and culture, the same place where many people marry has tombs and cripts INSIDE the building (tombs very old, yeah, we don’t do that anymore, but still). In fact, it’s very possible that the very floor where you stand saying your votes it were a tombstone. Words of eternal love and a few inches below the corpse (or the remains) of some ancient Lord or King.
So yeah, now understand why I don’t give a shit about things like that.
And that pearl of “orientalist racist”? I don’t see how you wanting to marry at the Taj Mahal makes you a racist. It makes you an ignorant if you don’t know that is a tomb instead a palace, but not a racist. I don’t know, but usually when someone want to marry in some place it’s because they think it’s indeed a beautiful place, is it not?
Racist? I think there are many issues in this world that are indeed racist and more important that the damn place where people choose to marry and promise to love each other.
