    I dunno. I sort of get it from both sides.

    The problem with cultural appropriation is that it is damaging, especially to cultures that are already struggling due to past trauma. Whereas a ‘healthy’ or thriving culture can afford to shrug it off - they likely will have other ways of leaving their mark than just being stereotyped in this kind of way, making it way easier to shrug off.

    Its kinda like the kid that is insecure and abused at home getting picked on by the popular kids, even though they dont see the big deal as *they* would shrug it off - and just ignoring his ‘no’ coz they can and he shouldnt be such a pussy.

    I believe the headdress on top of that is like a sacred symbol for the most respected of spiritual/tribal leaders and wearing it is sort of akin to getting a Navy Seals tattoo( or whatever mark those military specialist teams get and have to *earn*) without even being part of the military, let alone that elite team.

    So yes, it seems like overreacting and for a dominant culture, it definitely would be. For them...im not so sure.

    I struggle with the concept of cultural appropriation since every culture adopts aspects of other cultures. To suggest that races/ethnicities own cultures, blurs the line between race/ethnicity and culture which I don't agree with.

    That's.. all I got from the article. The end.
    Of course you can't be yourself! Who do you think you are?! Don't try to be someone else either, cause that's cultural appropriation.

    There's a lot of overlap with sectarianism too though, which I guess is a thing, less and less so as the Irish are some of the most earnest people I've ever met in terms of secularism and all the modern liberal tropes, I'd expect the anti-irish stereotypes of the past to make little sense soon, though they'll be replaced with new ones I'm sure.
    Your post sparked a tangent of mine regarding the perceived vulnerability of cultures around the world. I do notice in general there is a kind of hierarchy of vulnerable vs dominating cultures in the mind of a person who follows the theory of cultural appropriation. The trend and theory is that oppressed cultures are the ones who need protection from being absorbed and taken in by a more powerful culture which people can argue one of two ways, the positive (For cultural exchange) is that it makes the new cultural block that ensures more diverse and it in the case of historically decimated cultures help keep the culture alive but it can be argued on the other hand that it is more like say the Zerg from Starcraft in that the original culture is wiped out and replaced by the new culture who then absorbs the old culture into the hivemind and warps it beyond what it was once.

    That's a very Huge irony on the part of pro-globalism and anti-cultural appropation people sInce the two go hand in hand like melting ice and hot sunny days or electricity and magnetism. One cannot stop cultural exchange and appropation in a world that is more global short of draconian social control measures.
