Girl meets world addresses Cultural appropriation

Okay. So i want to talk about this for the sake of talking about it, and if anyone has anything to say about it, I’m all ears. I think this is downright mean. This is a high school girl, who found a style movement she enjoys, and decided to roll with it. Especially since she’s not doing it to degrade Japanese girls or appropriating a piece of fashion that’s extremely close to the culture’s traditions or beliefs. This is different than when Gwen Stefani and Avril Lavigne used “Harajuku Girls” and their culture as props to sell their music. This is treating the culture as a commodity. This is a girl embracing another culture, which shouldn’t be discouraged. That being said, she should be educated beyond the weak understanding that western civilization inevitably has of Japanese street fashion.As his definition stated, "Harajuku" is a real neighborhood in Japan where teenagers (not just girls) strive to dress in a way which is original to them as individuals. He is correct. But this includes any number of styles, not just what this girl is wearing. They did not develop “one look” to copy. If she’s dressing just to dress like a cute Japanese girl she saw on the internet, that’s one thing; but how does he know she hasn’t done her research, become inspired by the movement to dress in a way which expresses your own unique identity, and this is what she came up with? Oh yeah, that’s right she couldn’t have done that because she’s just another stupid white girl

On a related note, this whole, being outraged on behalf of the group whose culture is being appropriated instead of asking whoever’s supposed to be truly offended what they think, has to stop. This system of handling cultural appropriation - where the white guy calls it out and gets offended - doesn’t really serve the interest of whoever’s supposed to have been appropriated; instead, it just allows white people to prove that they are Good White People and go on with their privileged lives.

^^The most intelligent response I’ve seen to this post. I was going to respond, but this person said everything I wanted to say.

AU where Elsa is a villain and has struck Regina’s heart with ice. She brainwashes her, using her as a puppet to taunt the Savior. With Regina’s death fast approaching, Emma must find a way to defeat Elsa before the mayor’s heart completely freezes over.
I don’t know how season 4 is going to go but I thought this would have been a neat idea. :V
