friendly reminder that spirit animals are a sacred concept in a variety of religions worldwide (many of them being aboriginal religions that are at risk of destruction by european colonialism) and are not a way to joke about your admiration for something
bolded because people are like “so?? what’s the big deal NOW?? racism isOVR??????????”
but really doe….
i automatically judge people who joke about “spirit animals” when they could just say patronus instead.
