According to a University of British Columbia scholar’s recent study, pumpkins and pumpkin spice lattes are the epitome of sexism, racism and white privilege.

In the peer-reviewed academic study titled “The Perilous Whiteness of Pumpkins“, Lisa Jordan Powell examines and analyzes the “symbolic whiteness associated with pumpkins in the contemporary United States.”

Pumpkin Spice Lattes are a symbol of racism and misogyny.

pumpkin spice lattes are lame

the "pumpkin" part does pretty much nothing to the flavour. could actually just get a normal latte, get some cinnamon or vanilla syrup shot to sweeten and flavour a little and then dump a load of nutmeg on top.


pumpkin is nice enough but it's a light flavour that gets overpowered by coffee. just leave it to soups and pies and the occasional stew or roast.
O.K.

I tried one at starbucks the other day out of curiosity. wasn't worth the extra £1 over a normal latter + syrup and I had a better time a few days later when I just got a normal latte and just dumped in nutmeg and cinnamon.

eggnog latte remains the only seasonal starbucks drink I like.

Jfc. "Peer-reviewed". Yah ifbecause your peers are all brain dead sycophants who parrot the "correct" perspectives to get ahead in their field.

Symbolic whiteness just means they associate something with white people. Which in Canada could probably be most things because, ya know, there's a lot of white folk.

The people who push this garbage are the real racists. This type of language hints at some kind of racial essentialism where our habits and traits are irreconcilably tied to our skin tone. It's absurd.

you know what's even more privileged?

The motherfuckers who wrote this are so privileged that they can afford to write about such trivial matter as an academic study.

I've never had a PSL cuz I don't drink coffee. I had a pumpkin chai mix thing from trader joes once and it wasn't to my taste but everyone else I know who's tried it loves it. I love pumpkin pie (making one at this very moment actually), pumpkin curry, fried pumpkin, pumpkin stew, etc but I guess I just don't like to drink it.

Oh my god fuck these people so much. The hell kinda theory they teach at the University of British Columbia?


I mean I guess I can see how pumpkin spiced lattes are sort of an aspect of middle class culture and by extension there could be cultural evidence of its being associated with the concept of "whiteness", but fucking perilous? Your dumbass 90s environmental activist language is perilous.


And all that'll happen is that people see this stuff and respond with:

And this shit:

She says because PSLs lack nutrients from actual pumpkin, they are consumed solely for luxury and

Strikes me as a rigid application of some sort of weird Marxist framework on food.

From that we get the sardonic:
apparently, in Powell’s mind, only white people can have luxurious things.



So this paper is the KKK. Not equally as damaging, but an actual extension of the group. Fuck this paper.

I have never had a punpkin spice latte.

I'm with xiaoxi on this one. and I didn't read the study but the article makes it seem like "thing is popular with white people therefore thing is racist" which is dumb in every conceivable way lol.

I feel like these types of 'studies' are insulting to just about every human being.

Yeah that's exactly it, it feels distinctly less like racism and more like one fractional aspect of white culture.

Unless the study never actually calls it sexist or racist and is just tracking its existence as a fad rather than just a drink.
