It's called ppl are too sensitive in the 21st century

 

The idea that no one from another race can dress from another culture to me is ludicrous and has no real reason for it

 

Unless someone is doing it in a mocking way that is

Or that many ignorant white/non-asian people have no place deciding when to appreciate and orientalize Asian people culture. 

Western culture could actually learn about Asian history and culture instead of creating a fantasy gaze.

Audience matters. If she's doing this for a primarily Chinese audience, it's really not appropriating as much as assimilating.

 

I'm not going to quote y'all. But, friendly ****ing reminder, denial of social science is just as real as denial of natural science. Cultural appropriation is real. You can feel however you want about it, but the pure definition is valid and has stood up to scientific scrutiny for decades.

Well then let's not appreciate it at all then if we have no place to decide

 

Please

 

What the hell is so wrong with looking at iconic historical or cultural looks and emulating them?

 

Like I actually don't get it

 

Cultures all over the world copied American style clothes which is now the norm and I don't see anyone complaining

You're right. It's not like people were ever sensitive enough to create separate drinking fountains by race.

Reminder that cultural appropriation, as a trend, is complete bs because it’s based around race and not culture. If you’re Vietnamese, no ones gonna be mad if you wear Chinese clothing because you’re East Asian. If you’re African-American, no ones gonna scream cultural appropriation because you wore traditional Ogiek items, because you’re black. If you’re a British guy... you get the point.

Oh my god, it's just a Kimono display, Japanese culture actually says a lot that they love when other people use their culture to represent them because they're a very small land piece and it's good for them when people get to see what they're like. I don't think this is Cultural Appropriation, infact a LOT of things that people would find offensive these days is just too much, not everything is appropriating :staymad:

she probably had almost zero say 

Let's be honest this is the case with her whole music career. I don't blame her though. She always managed to be successful.

She's way more passionate and invested in her fenty beauty line.
