I wish people would remember that the past tense of sneak is sneaked, and that there is a difference between a principle and a principal.
The past tense of drag is dragged.

No, I didn't read these on here today.  There were in news articles.

Waygook.org user denimdaze, 'sneaked' is indeed a past tense form of 'sneak,' but 'snuck' is also an acceptable past tense or past participle of 'sneak.'

Is stuck the past tense of steak?

If you CLAIM it is.

A student found a metal spoon under my desk.

It's really fancy. Not your run-of-the-mill Emart spoon.

I asked around. No one seems to want to claim it. Now I'm stuck with this extraordinary spoon that's far too pretty to throw away.

I think I'll let Ryan use it as a wand.


Pics or it ain't real

Hah, sorry, didn't see this earlier. Left it at the school, still trying to figure out how I can get my Ryan to hold it without using tape or anything obvious. I'll take a picture as soon as I can get that to happen because you must see the magic in its entirety.

Is dressing in drag considered cultural appropriation?

No one cares.



OMG, this is racially insensitive.



Why do some people think Mexicans have the thinnest skin ever?

To answer your question, yes, it makes them a bigoted fascist. /s

I'm sure there are certain people who would argue that. I believe a lot of feminist make a claim similar to that when transgender people dress in retrograde (from a feminist perspective) outfits and perpetuate a narrow, "sexy" standard of femininity, as was the backlash from many in the feminist community when Bruce-turned-Caitlin Jenner posed for the cover of Vogue for her coming out party.

On the subject of cultural appropriation, just read this from the NYTimes this morning, and it's ridic:
Quote
Katy Perry turned herself into a reality star to promote her new album, “Witness.” Perry put herself on a live-streamed trial for 96 hours, while she sang, cooked, attended a therapy session and cried her way through an interview with the activist DeRay Mckesson, lamenting her history of cultural appropriation (she dressed up as a geisha during a 2013 live performance, among other missteps).

EVERY SINGLE JAPANESE PERSON I MET IN JAPAN LOVED THE FACT THAT I WAS WEARING A KIMONO.

If you're offended by shit like that, ask the source if they give a shit or not. And if they don't, then you can't care either.

A lot of people automatically equate "cultural appropriation" with racism and honestly I think that just detracts from actual racism. Is it sometimes poor taste? Sure. But maybe focus on more serious issues.

Though if someone sees a caucasian person with dreads and thinks "cool!" but then sees the same hairstyle on a black person and thinks "ghetto!" then I think that there are some internal biases someone needs to sort out. I feel like this kind of example is what people are actually mad about or should be rather than trying to own certain styles.

Yeah, I feel like there is only so much you can do with that. Are there that many people trying to do fusion bibimbaps, like the Thanksgiving? Or was he getting angry at people who put the gochujang in wrong?

Here's my thinking.

If I am a man in drag, according to current convention, I am to be referred to as a "trans-woman", entitled to all the rights, privileges, and adornments of womanhood.

I am therefore allowed to play the victim card. Since I am a victim, I can no longer be the aggressor; hence no appropriation.

... but I appropriated the right to play the victim card.

Korea bastardizes pizza and a good many other foods. Every country does it. Some results are pretty fly, whereas others... are at least edible, I suppose.

This is a rather offensive post, just so you know.

Transvestism does not mean you are transgendered. Please do not refer to them as the same thing again. It's actually very hurtful. I'm sure you didn't mean to be hurtful, but I wanted to let you know that it's not okay to make that equivocation.

I won't even touch the rest of your post because holy shit. But yeah. Please be more careful about your terminology.


BTW Japanese people cream their jeans when they see foreigners doing Japanese stuff. Sorry, truth.
