Cultural Appropriation and Racist lingerie – How Chic

Racist Lingerie…{sigh}…of all the things the progressives rant about cultural appropriation is right up at the top for most stupid. I try very hard to usually use the word “ignorant” rather than stupid. Ignorant means a person just doesn’t know something. Ignorance can be fixed with education, with knowledge. But as the saying goes, “you can’t fix stupid”. Stupidity, if I’m being generous is a lack of common sense, and if I’m being less charitable is a lack of intelligence.

It should only take a tiny amount of knowledge of history to understand how cultures mix and grow and change and how the wide history of the world is full of people joining with other people and adopting their cultures. Far from being a theft it’s a sign of honor, of worthiness, that someone deems your culture worth incorporating into their life.

It’s highly doubtful those complaining about cultural appropriation aren’t guilty of it themselves. We’ve

"Over half of surviving Ancient Greek kouros sculptures (from c. 615 – 485 BC) are found wearing dreadlocks. In Ancient Greece, kouros sculptures from the Archaic period depict men wearing dreadlocks while Spartan hoplites (generally described as fair-haired) wore formal locks as part of their battle dress."

likely all seen the video of the fellow being yelled at for having dreadlocks because those are from black culture and he was white. But, a little history shows that the Greeks wore them hundreds of years before the time of Christ.

Tattoos go back as far 12,000 years. Who can say what culture they belong to but certainly they exist now in every culture but only after they were appropriated.

Pants are said to have been invented by the Mongols for horseback riding. We see very few African Americans actually dressing like Africans. Rather they dress like Western Europeans. But in their hypocrisy (that normal state of being for them) they fail to see how they wear, eat, listen to, and speak the culture around them.

They will, of course, claim this isn’t their fault because they were brought here against their will. Ignoring that this is false and that all of them were born here it still doesn’t remove the fact that they have a choice in how to dress and act and they dress and act like the culture around them, a culture that doesn’t belong to them.

I will take what I want from any culture. I will do this because what they have is good, worthwhile, and benefits me.

If the models were naked I suppose we could say they were appropriating the culture of Adam and Eve.

A whole host of famous faces including Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid were among the Victoria’s Secret Angels who modelled the lingerie company’s designs on the runway.
