So, this young woman attending her prom sees a beautiful dress and says “That’s me!”, and buys it for the special occasion, having no malice at all towards Chinese or their culture, and she gets a barrage of whiners and victims, saying she must apologize?! And a bunch of commentary about that “cultural appropriation” nonsense?
So now I guess we can’t appreciate something like a food or clothing item from a particular culture if I get this right. We’re all supposed to live in our own isolated little enclaves, never mix and mingle with anyone, or enjoy something another culture has to offer. We’re now “culturally appropriating” if we do this.
Notice how the harshest critics are Chinese raised in the U S, and Chinese actually living on the mainland aren’t at all offended by this young woman’s appreciation of their history and culture? Sounds like the whiners and victims griping about her need to get a life.
