Children are full creativity and wonder. They are living, breathing sponges just soaking up the world around them. What is wrong with allowing children to participate in different cultural activities and explore foreign traditions? That is what one Utah mother was left wondering when she was bashed for allowing her daughter to have a Japanese tea party themed birthday party, and dress as a Geisha.
That is, until, a Japanese woman stepped in and put all the SJW drama queens to rest.
The mom in question, who runs a party planning blog called The Gala Gals, is just one of the latest people to enter the fierce modern debate on cultural appropriation, and when it is and isn’t okay. Do you dress up as people from other countries in order to make fun of them? You’re probably a racist. Do you like wearing a kimono because you appreciate its beauty and historical significance to Japan? Go right ahead. A strong argument can be made, after all, that stigmatizing the sharing of cultural elements only creates more distance between us.
Of course the comments on the post were pretty funny too. Can you say “mic drop of the century!?”
This shows you just how completely ridiculous race baiters are. Go find a real hobby!
