Cultural appropriation ( The practice of using something from another culture that you're not a part of )The ridiculous notion that being of a different culture or race (especially white) means that you are not allowed to adopt things from other cultures is now a thing to be shamed apparently. People are being put down in holidays like Halloween or anything that is not Macdonalds eating workaholic american culture activities for dressing up like any of the remaining 195 countries and cultures around this big world. It's wrong to incorporate fun cultural aspects, beautiful clothing, speak foreign languages, even learning about other cultures because that would open your eyes that America is not the best country in the world.
I fail to see how someone dressing up in Japanese fashions, liking anime and eating japan cuisine its offensive and making fun of that culture, if anything its a behavior that emulates at a basic level and incorporates awareness away from the self as opposed to the horrible way we live here, it's even healthier and more open minded. I don't know but I feel like everyday I find new terms being created to restrict our freedom with shame and guilt tactics all with the goal of keeping you down and unaware.
A recent example: Yoga classes at Ottawa university have been cancelled because of concerns about 'cultural genocide', colonialism and 'Western supremacy.So desperate is this new generation to take offence, and to smash the thing that had the temerity to offend them, that they can’t even see people relaxing (yoga’s meant to be relaxing, right?) without thinking: ‘I wonder if this form of relaxation is problematic?’
Cultural appropriation: Do the people that come up with this stuff realize how stupid they sound? They probably don't, but leave it to American liberals to come up with another idiotic catch phrase like cultural appropriation.
Now we can't culturally appropriate. That means it's time for Hawaii to secede and become it's own country because we're not allowed to go there anymore. Getting leid at the airport is now politically incorrect and so is going to a luau.
Give me a break! What's next? Is eating foods from other cultures also cultural appropriation? I guess it's time to close every restaurant that serves foreign cuisine because now it's politically incorrect to eat there!
