If you're skeered by them, I hear skeeter repellent tends to work to keep out intellectualism just fine.

I have no time for people who think they know everything and aren't afraid to tell you how smart they are.

Now there you go! Getting all fancy on me and adding time and turning this into some kind of new-fangled physical problem or something!

Who do I look like? Stephen Hawking?

Maybe the cat is in the litterbox.

Litterboxes are Scandinavian. From the term Liturbauxigav

I am going to have to turn you in. All cats should be making potty in your sock drawer unless you're a Viking.

Is there stink or no stink in the litter box. You don't know until you smell it. Smell kinda quamtumy, time to change it.

I'm gonna wear a kimono, a feather headdress and eat with chopsticks at the next party I go to. Hopefully it's on Taco Tuesday.


Pics, or it didn't happen.


May as well wedge your feet into some Dutch wooden shoes to complete that ensemble.

I find it humorous that only in America, the great melting pot, multiculturalism would be called cultural appropriation.

Its a praised thing till someone white does it then it's "Release the Krakken" time.

Stop it now!

You cannot say, "Krakken" unless you are a Greek mythological figure in history.


Racist!

but borrowing elements from one culture for expressing yourself or enjoying life isnt bad at all!



Oh!!!.... that brings back memories......

I too had one, in black with gold and with tiny bit of orange and it was about

55 years ago!!




I think that many are quick to say cultural appropriation of hairstyles, or clothing , but we humans borrow and steal from each other all the time.
Its totally ridiculous , to cry about cultural appropriation , I mean its a bit late for that , we humans have shared and mixed our cultures so much its hard to take them apart.



It was in at much nicer time and wasn't called *cultural appropiation* then!!

It was called a *cheongsam*
I had a lot of fun wearing it.

Think about it... what happens to cultures that don't get "appropriated"? They eventually die. That's why this concept is completely ridiculous.

Well I'll give you example. Someone wears a Chinese dress and then proceeds to say Chin cong while making exaggerated slanty eyes. Now that's racist.

The Utah girl didn't do any of that except wear the Chinese dress for prom.

Busta Rhymes got it when he dropped his Arab Money.
. they didn't appreciate the obvious muslim influences in his music video.

He dropped a remix and quick because of the heat he got from Arab community.
. See how the atmosphere has changed? The only thing close is the beat, but since it's a Swiss Beat, the infraction is null and void and thusly explains why this is an issue that is no longer valid nor does anyone care.

Quite simply, no one cared.

I tried walking like an Egyptian once but was stopped by a wandering Jew. He told me to stop mitvahbehaving.

Not sacrifing virgins to a heathen sun god is also considered racist because it there way of life, and have existed for thousands of year by using up all the women from the other tribe is bigotry by denying them their right to culture.

And now that tribe wants to come here to spread their way of life..sad thing is there aren't any virgins...even though alot of women wear white on their wedding day.

Who cares? It's entertainment. Cultural appropriation has got to be one of the dumbest complaints I've ever heard. I'm a grown adult with a job making my own money... I I decided to pay to have corn rows, wear a fedora and ray bans, and drive a tuner car, that's my business. Anyone who has a complaint with it can do two things.
1. Examine my middle finger, sitting on it and spinning if they require such frivolities to understand the finger's meaning.
2. Stop culturally apprpriating me by using my money, my internet, my country, and my media formats to ensure they're not hypocritical asshats who only complain about folks of caucasian ancestry appropriating things.

And no, I have no intention of getting corn rows or driving a tuner... but as an adult, I have the right and am under zero obligation to give two squats what anyone else thinks of it.
