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 Mulan. Just the week Keziah Daum is having for wanting to look good for prom.
My fucking god, fuck every media reporter who is out to destroy this girl. Your “Just asking questions” can eat a dick https://t.co/txjdyBB7oz

People are not outraged. One idiot cares, @TwitterMoments, but it’s cool how twitter has decided to play a direct role in directing more abuse toward a random user on it’s platform pic.twitter.com/datqDSO3Ei

Keziah’s story definitely ranks up there with dumbass cultural appropriation outrages (see White Women Driven Out of Business for ‘Cultural Appropriation.’ They Make Burritos… and Crazed SJWs Now Accuse Bruno Mars of ‘Cultural Appropriation’). Keziah, to her credit, isn’t backing down.
She also wants amends from Twitter after they sicced SJW bullies on her by featuring this story on Twitter Moments.
I've tried to get Twitter to verify me since they thrust me into the spotlight over my prom dress & have had no luck.
Given the amount of media attention I've gotten, I need it verified so people won't attribute tweets from knockoff accounts as being from me.

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.
Also, it’s not being a dick.
