Cultural Appropriation? Get a life!
article appeared in Wizbang on May 1st
A high school
student’s prom pictures have generated a furious debate online after some
social media users accused the 18-year-old of “cultural appropriation.”
Keziah...an obvious anarchist!
Twitter user Keziah,
who is not Chinese, posted pictures of herself wearing a cheongsam, or qipao –
a traditional Chinese dress – for her prom in Utah, USA, last week.
In a widely-shared
response to the pictures, one Twitter user, Jeremy Lam, tweeted: “My culture is
not your… prom dress”.
The original tweet,
and Lam’s criticism on Friday night, have attracted hundreds of thousands of
likes, tens of thousands of retweets, and thousands more comments as supporters
and critics clashed over the weekend over the concept of cultural appropriation
– the adoption of minority cultures, typically by dominant cultures.
However, after some
commenters suggested Keziah should remove the pictures, she refused.
“To everyone causing
so much negativity: I mean no disrespect to the Chinese culture,” she wrote.
OH NO! The Humanity
“I’m simply showing
my appreciation to their culture. I’m not deleting my post because I’ve done
nothing but show my love for the culture. It’s a… dress. And it’s beautiful.”
I lead a very busy
life. I can hardly believe people actually have time to get twisted over
something like this. Do these people actually sit around to think of new ways
to be offended? A girl wants to wear a dress to her prom. She picks a Chinese
dress because she thinks it looks pretty and she admires Chinese culture.
Now, lunatics are foaming at the mouth because she’s somehow denigrating a
These fascists think
they can arbitrarily pick an issue to bellyache about and accuse everybody who
disagrees with them of myriad sins. Scream all you want; we couldn’t care less.
You’ve cried “Wolf!” one too many times and are desensitizing others to the
offense of real cultural appropriation (taking on another culture for purposes
of ridiculing it). These goose-steppers in waiting need a trip to a place where
real offenses occur. I’d gladly appropriate dollars for their one-way trip to
North Korea or Iran.
