Some kids do stuff like that. Draw on the wall. Cut their own hair. It doesnít have to mean that anythingís wrong.


Totally agree, Harls.

I did it... when I was 6 or 7 years old.

Cut the hair of all my dolls, and our dog, and then gave myself a grand new haircut, to the horror of my family. Meanwhile, I thought I looked fabulous and was highly insulted, that no one else thought the same.

The picture of Gabriella isnít going to go over well. Thatís total cultural appropriation.

Oh for goodness sake. Itís learning about another culture. Did the Pakistanis cane Kate for wearing their national dress on a royal visit? No. They loved it.
Canadaís worst contribution to the planet IMO has been to spearhead misguided woke policies.

Clearly things are different for you where you live, Hester, but this wouldnít fly in Canada. You might think itís the worst contribution to the planet but I donít think calling out cultural appropriation can ever be a bad thing. 🤷🏻‍♀️

So glad I grew up in a time where a little girl could dress up as a cartoon character without it being called racism.

Itís not racism (and I donít want to get into that debate because Maria has said she doesnít wish to host those discussions), I said cultural appropriation. Thereís nothing wrong with loving characters that are different than you, but there are some Iíd never dress up as because it would offend a lot of people.

Didnít mean to even cause a debate here, I genuinely assumed everyone else would be as surprised as I was over this photo.

Amen to that. Star Ridiculous to call out a small child for dressing up as a video game character.

Hope the twins enjoyed their birthday celebrations, they have been through so much lately. I love the photo and think Gabriella looks very cute.

Cultural appropriation, imo, is complex and I donít think a little girl dressing up in this case is it. Itís more about how is the cultural dress being presented? Is it as a Halloween costume, like a joke? Is it from a culture that has been historically oppressed like Africans (blackface) or American Indians (headdress wearing doing a silly rain dance)Öis it using cultural dress inappropriately like a sacred spiritual material being used as a napkin for a theme dinner?

Context matters.

So AB which characters is it ok to ďappropriateĒ as a costume? All literature and therefore cartoons have cultural roots. Every African or other leader who wears a tie is appropriating Croatian cultureÖand are we allowed to have a croissant for breakfast?

Youíre not allowed to continue this discussion.

Another topic we cannot really host well. And itís also O/T in this thread regardless.
