    Okay things are really going too far now.

    I said on Tumblr that I love France and French culture and I used a few French words in it, and someone sent me a nasty anon message saying that I was a racist cis pig because I take part in "cultural appropriation".

    How can appreciating other cultures be "racist" and how can it even be a problem? I don't understand for the life of me how this could possibly offend anybody.

    What the HECK is this all about?

    Is it a new special snowflake Social Justice Warrior thing?

    If I had to guess I'd say it's when you appropriate someone's culture.

    "Cultural appropriation" is a load of BS. It's nothing but the liberal left thinking they have the authority to dictate to everyone else what they can and cannot do.

    This is SJW ********. Frankly it's this retarded, self-victimising rhetoric that warrants people calling us "libtards". If you hold this view, ask yourself if this is really an issue of importance. Do you really care that X Kardashian wore a bindi and they got praise for it? Is that what you're fired up about? Because that's some really insignificant ****, and if you were really for progress you would identify and talk issues of actual importance. And, before someone resorts to racial presumptions, I'm black.

    I simply don't understand how appreciating other cultures is now a bad thing to do.. like, what the hell? That's like.. saying school dinners shouldn't have the "Food around the world" days because it's racist?!?!

    Yes, the liberal left are complete lunatics. They call us racist when we criticise other cultures, and they call us racist when we appreciate other cultures.

    What one is it, leftie liberals? Make your minds up.

    Exactly, it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever...

    If you don't embrace other cultures: "Racist, xenophobic cis white pig!!!!!"
    If you do embrace other cultures: "Racist, cultural appropriating cis white pig!!!!"
