It's a tale as old as time. Girl picks out dress. Rando on Twitter attacks her for cultural appropriation. Twitter makes it worse for claiming this is Twitter Moments worthy. No, it's not the remake of Disney's
. Just the week Keziah Daum is having for wanting to look good for prom.
People are not outraged. One idiot cares, @TwitterMoments, but it’s cool how twitter has decided to play a direct r… https://t.co/hTYcTjAiML
Twitter, the organization with arbitrary community guidelines to prevent "bullying" just gave bullies a platform. All because a few idiots had the same stupid opinion about a girl's dress. When the
leftist douche taco who decides what trends and what gets featured
totally arbitrary algorithm agrees with the outrage, I guess it's not bullying. It's social justice.
However, if nothing else this story helps to illustrate the difference between "Progressive America" and "Real America." In Progressive America, cultural appropriation is a real thing. Leftists think any slightest complaint you have should be amplified, depending on where you are on the pound for pound most marginalized rankings. It's the people who run Twitter. Thinking a high school girl should be shamed for wearing clothes. Just don't say anything about the high school kids from Parkland.
Except for Kyle Kashuv. He's fair game.
In Real America, we're not that uptight. White people enjoy YouTube videos where black people make fun of their cooking. Everyone laughs when you say Italian family parties are responsible for 75% of the obesity crisis in America. Especially Italians, who know it's true. And I've yet to be to a St. Patrick's Day Party where anyone sober wasn't allowed. Or, where anyone is sober.
In real America, teenagers can enjoy music from people who don't look like them, or watch anime, or wear a freaking dress to a formal. It's not cultural appropriation. It's cultural appreciation.
