and so that one person who questioned the rest grew, as an individual instead of one of the masses.
before you try tending to the world around you you must first tend to yourself, grow, learn, feel
be human.

God that cultural appropriation ******** pisses me off so much. Since when is having appreciation for a certain aspect of other cultures discrimination/racist. You know what adopting aspects of other cultures is called ******* cultural diffusion and it's how societies advance. When societies interact they share ideas, technologies, etc. and they adopt the good ones from the other cultures and both societies advance because of it. Just like how we use arabic numerals, or how europeans got porcelain from china. People who say that it's somehow racist or whatever the **** their complaint about it is are the biggest ******* retards.

It's a gallon of water.
In America just like most of the world has bottled water.
With a jug of purified water you get a lot more for a lot less We spend about 25 cents to fill a jug in Florida compared to $3 for 12 water bottles and those jugs of water are used as a substitute for bottled water as it's the same thing except more efficient as you could easily reuse the jug. It's usually used as a component in survival kits. It's easier to carry 1 jug rather than 12 water bottles.
Is that enough information? I hope that you understand the concept of it now.

I never said I didn't understand the concept nor did I say that I don't appreciate that a milk bottle can be used for water.
It's just extremely rare to see here in England, if even ever seen.

Far as I know, its basically where you take a foreign cultural, and make it yours (stealing it) by integrating it into your own. Kinda like the Romans did way back.
Aparently some stupid ******* cunts sees this, not as a brilliant symbol of our shared human heritage and unity, but rather as a new form of cultural warfare or something.
Thats the way I've understood it, anyway.

I think they're confusing cultural appropriation with misappropriation, which would be something like putting on blackface and going "haha I'm a ******" or just blatantly ******* up something like a religious aspect (which if you're not doing it on purpose deserves helpful advice instead of death threats.)

Rule of Thumb, if the person or culture you're imitating says it's okay, then it's okay and not offensive.

Honestly, I think the idea of something being "offensive" is something we should move away from. Something is only offensive if the intend behind it is to put down or degrade the subject matter. If I put on blackface and went out in public going "I'm a *****! Hide yo bike'n hide yo snatch, because I'm comming't wreck em both!", that would be tremendously stupid, but I would hardly think that would be offensive, since the intend would rather be a horrible attempt at being funny rather than a mean-spirited attempt at degrading black people.
We see this all the time, where one religious group after the other screams bloody foul at everhting from video games, to comedians, just because they made some referance or joke somewhere.

Words are only as offensive as we make them. If we stop being whiny little pussies, the words stop being offensive.

Let's revise the Tumblr definition:

Tacos are a huge part of Mexican culture. You, as a white gringo, like eating tacos, so you decide to learn how to make them (authentic style, not taco bell ****). But Mexicans are a suffering minority in the US. They are oppressed by the evil white males. They have few things in life they can enjoy without being oppressed; for example, delicious tacos al pastor. Now that you learnt how to make tacos, you're taking that away from them. Now it's no longer a Mexican thing, it was appropriated by the white devils. You just stole that special bit of happiness they had left and now their life will be miserable 4evah. You suck, white gringo.


And that's cultural appropriation. And pretty ******* stupid.

I read about cultural appropriation, where say, a white person can't have dreadlocks because it's "black culture"  Also because it generally looks stupid  and an american can't learn chinese because that's cultural appropriation, doesn't that mean anyone that's not white can't use the internet because it was devised by a white man?
