#里茲螞蟻批判性思考寫作專欄 #Alex專欄 #外師每週精選閱讀
Can a culture belong exclusively to one person or people? Even if a culture is closed, exclusive and xenophobic – unaccepting of outsiders because of racism and selfishness – a member must either be extremely ignorant about anthropology, history and fashion, or else living in a constant state of delusion to believe that they have sole rights to learn about, celebrate or even adopt parts or entirety of a culture. If culture was indivisible, immutable and permanently attached to one place or people, the world would not exist as it does in reality – as a pluralistic and multicultural melting pot, where borders between civilisations are fluid, and there are constant cultural exchanges at a whole host of levels, from language to customs, and festivals to fashions.
As an integral (and perhaps less positive) aspect of this diverse and cosmopolitan world, some of these ignorant and deluded individuals also have social media presences, and continue to scream “cultural appropriation” every time they see something that they want to selfishly claim exclusive rights to for themselves. Adele may be the latest target of their vitriol, and drawing attention to the haters like they do in this article gives them much more attention than they deserve, but this absurdly intolerant behaviour seems to be happening in increasing frequency and needs to be called out for what it is – an abominable form of cultural bigotry. Otherwise, anyone not from England should STOP SPEAKING ENGLISH IMMEDIATELY BECAUSE THAT’S CULTURAL APPROPRIATION!
