Cultural Appropriation 119 Lifestyle Discussion 7/23/14 8:47am
Tuah
Did Twilight just block me over a single disagreement? And here I thought our commonality made us friends. Well no matter. It isn't wrong for me to enjoy poi dancing, wear hill-tribe-made pants while I do so, nor to use the symbolism of chakras to help guide my meditation despite being agnostic. I do not merely humour nor tolerate the philosophies on living life which many cultures I learn f ...

Heh, that very grade school example came to my mind earlier. There are a few exceptions but most of the time it's this sort of thing I see people complaining about.

Fat & unconfident 34 Life Issues 7/25/14 6:56am

I'm definitely fond of fuller figures. Overflowing figures, even. Thinness may be desirable by a lot of people, but it's not the only form of beauty. It seems to me though that confidence comes from experiencing sociability in a positive way. Get out there and experience life, and surround yourself with people who will accept you no matter what. Good friends.

That guy looks familiar... Kinda reminds me of Kage's stories about getting into the furry fandom.

With instances of clear oppressors taking from those they oppress, sure, I could see how that could be outright offensive, as it is an extension of their power over the other group. Things like out-of-place bindis and tattoos however aren't nearly the same thing.

Definitions and semantics are flexible, but you still understand my point. Either way, you still seem to be doing the same thing; implying that people who want to engage in aspects of another culture are by default being disrespectful unless one goes out of the way to find out who gave them permission to do so. As if culture should be some exclusive secret club.

Except it was not originally with permission. The "permission" was merely some Maori not being uptight assholes about it. I've looked at the definition of cultural appropriation again and it appears to include both negative and positive connotations of adopting aspects of other cultures. So I suppose I should rephrase the point I'm trying to make. SJWs tend to always label any cultur ...

The difference is that it's almost a matter of copyright rather than actual ownership. Many Maori don't want the rest of the world doing poi dancing, and yet we do it anyway. It's a skill and art form. It's a medium of motion and expression that means different things to different people. Or perhaps to some it means nothing but proof of one's own dexterity. Either way the art shouldn't be ...

So uh...hitting kids. 147 Lifestyle Discussion 7/23/14 8:07pm

It was only my dad who ever hit me as a child, and every time he did it was for things that I didn't even do. I was a perfect little angel and he never believed me.

Ah, kk. I recently saw an introduction on Fur Affinity by a Raz, and he never answered whether he was the same one I know from the Sonic fangaming community. xP

Fur Squared 2015: my first furry convention 19 Lifestyle Discussion 7/23/14 7:24am
UVAFoozle
I only plan on going to Anthrocon or Fur the 'More, but cons are generally similar. Follow the 6-2-1 rule (get at least 6 hours of sleep, 2 good meals, and 1 shower each day), respect the convention center and hotel, don't haggle with dealers, be careful with fursuiters and their expensive costumes, and don't let any social anxieties get in your way. The furry community feels a lot like extended ...

This is part of what I'm getting at. This is to suggest that the only value a culture has is whether or not a person grew up in it, and that it has no intrinsic value. Some people are just interested in aspects of other cultures. Even if some individuals may be misguided, is there something so wrong with that?

I've read one of them before, and I doubt there's any new information in the others I haven't already read. Good humour is an important thing in life. If someone isn't outright trying to be racist or something, they should be humoured. I find it facepalmingly petty when I'm called a weaboo despite actually being part Japanese.
