You know why people get annoyed about appropriation is because it's the oppressing class going to the bank with the culture formed out of experiencing said oppression

ie: Elvis and white guy blues

I'm not saying it's a big deal to me, but you should make an effort to understand

Whiny bitches ought to be proud that we made their culture profitable. What the hell were they doing with it before? Sharpen up them business senses, people.

My thoughts: I wish there were actual elephants in the interview instead of analogous ones.

Because your position in society makes you tone deaf and it's goofy

Is that really an argument people make? The majority of society is not profiting from cultural appropriation. Pretty sure most people do understand why it can make all the people sensitive to it upset, but probably do not care. Especially, if their intentions are not exploitative.

Also, if some people really want to use such a lame argument wouldn't they also have to only purchase products from the people who created the product? White guy owns music store, can't sell culturally black music because he profits from it? Who does that benefit?

Cultural patents

Alright, so I think Piers is kind of an ******* and really missing the point. If people don't want to follow gender norms, so be it. It's not his issue, and he shouldn't get so uptight about it because he understands.

With that said, I can't help but feel sorry for anyone trying to go on the news and public media to talk about these things. Do the issues need to be brought up? Eventually, yes. But full on immersion, especially in the current political climate, is near impossible. It's just going to lead to more heartbreak like this. The real way to make these issues known and accepted is like every other piece of LGBT agenda, by slowly easing the public into it. Our generation (some of us, more or less) understands that gender norms are really something that should be disregarded, and people let to choose how they want to express themselves, and with each generation we'll get closer to being in a world in which these things are more socially acceptable.

I guess what I'm trying to say is I don't really blame Piers for not understanding, but I still think he's an ******* for reacting like he did.

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.
