 I visited an 11th century temple of Shiva in Sri Lanka. The temple custodian, a devotee of Shiva, was a nice lady; she marked me with a tilaka and said a prayer for me after I left an offering for Shiva. Unfortunately she didn’t know that in so doing, she was facilitating my privilege and justifying my rampant cultural appropriation. Perhaps the Mjölnir I was wearing offset it a bit?
