Our beloved creator of the great webcomic The Meek has weighed in at length on the perils of cultural appropriation in comics, ie white people writing about cultures you don't have a right to

Is she right, /co?

She's using the term "cultural appropriation", so I'm gonna go with a "no".

Living culture IS apropriation. People mix all the time and up until now it was never a bad thing.

You know what you call someobe who wants his race neat and clean and uniform?

>just a few generations ago my family was being raped and murdered, ripped apart and clawing their way to a better life
Poor her, it's not like other people's previous generations didn't include people who got raped or murdered or had to fight for a better life. Does she think all white people just used to be rich and well off through the generations and nobody had to suffer?

Also, if you complain about cultural appropriation then you have no idea about the concept of culture.
>>
None of you fucks actually read her essay at all.

>But here was the Asian version, with a copy-paste template to fill culture into and profit from. I should note that the editors of the comic are not Asian, and only a handful of contributors are of Asian background. Why couldn’t this anthology have been strictly a submissions-based one, allowing for the many actual Asians of comics to tell their own stories, instead of soliciting art from hither and yon? Were offers to join based solely on contributor follower numbers to help promote a successful project? What is next… tales from South America? Indigenous peoples? fill in the box? Do projects like these promote cultural understanding, or reduce it to an easily digestible product? I don’t want to ask these questions about people whose work I enjoy, but how can I not, when the discussion about cultural appropriation has been so active lately? It has been in the back of my mind, bothering me for months.

yep. culture, like memes, act as a living creature, infecting or not those who come in contact with it.
once you are infected with a different culture, you assimilate it on your own set of beliefs and so. It becomes yours.
the idea of appropriating a culture or idea is not even possible. One does not appropriate cultural content, as one would do with a hat or a piece of cloth.
that is a very shallow view of culture!
or you assimilate and aggregate a new culture to yours, or you refuse it, like a fucking racist, or as,ironically, a SJW dyke who thinks each culture should be kept in a bottle and never mixed.

>>
>>77708749
I think the main point people are making is that the whole idea of "cultural appropriation" is a crock of shit so it's not worth spending any time thinking about it at all. And they're right. Who gives a fuck? It's just the latest trendy first-world problem for people with no real problems to be "concerned" about.

And it's also hilariously similar to the "separate but equal" ideas behind Jim Crow laws.

>...who feel like it is appropriate to use culture to pay the bills. Like it is something you can simply google and sell as a product, going through continents like checklists. Culture isn’t that. It’s not a veneer. It is not skin. It is meat, something that lives and bleeds.

Yaaawn. I think I'll just keep raking in that money to pay my bills by "using culture", thank you very much.

So basically her complaints are:
>Only Asians should be allowed to write about Asian cultures!

>>ONLY ASIANS CAN WRITE ABOUT ASIAN STUFF

>I was a little taken aback a few months ago when I received an invitation to join a comics anthology being made about Asian fairytales. I realized suddenly that… I didn’t know any! I’ve read many, yes, but I didn’t actually grow up with traditional stories, and felt a little self-conscious about just pulling one out of a book without a connection to it.

>Then I got another email with more information, and a suggestion that possible contributors (who had been pre-selected, as far as I know, without any submission process) use a website filled with book pdfs to pull a random story from to illustrate. The stories should cover such and such continents, and such and such regions, and no overlap, and etc etc etc.

>My mother was not tucked into bed at night. As a child she nearly singlehandedly raised her baby brother and kept him from starving, from being crushed in the street or dead of neglect. Her violent and resentful father didn’t come to live at “home” with them until she was well into her teens. So she doesn’t have a lot of fairy tales in her head..

>And there are other people, good people who I know and who I like, with their own stories and their own struggles, who feel like it is appropriate to use culture to pay the bills. Like it is something you can simply google and sell as a product, going through continents like checklists. Culture isn’t that. It’s not a veneer. It is not skin.

We would get a full glass of it every morning, and whatever I was “too slow” to finish would go into the fridge for me to drink that evening. I tried so very hard to be slow. Soaking it up with my napkin bit by bit. Watering nearby plants with milk. Due to lack of time or resources, my default workaround was simply to procrastinate on drinking it for several days in a row, until eventually it turned into an undrinkably sour and chunky mess. This would often lead to extreme shame sessions, replete with yelling and slamming cabinets. Do you think money grows on trees? Do you know how lucky you kids have it?"

That was back when she was a well known and relevant webcomic artist.

Is it not artificial for her to write about magic then, considering magic is fake?

She could simply refuse to write the story. Better yet, she could have used the opportunity to look into her roots some and explore something new. But that's just too triggering, now isn't it?

People who talk about cultural apropiation always sound to me like: "We should send blacks to africa and raise the wall between Mexico and the US"

Every single present culture is fucking influenced by other cultures.
If you are so afraid of offending mexicans then stop eating chocolate altogether because that has origins in their native culture. Japanese people wouldn't have their tea, architecture and writing system if it wasn't for other countries. We wouldn't be able to enjoy jazz and blues because that's black music, right? Why are these triggas so fucking retarded?
>>
>>77709073
So? Anyone can read up on that shit and write about it. Proof of that is she is complaining about non-Asians writing about them. They obviously did not grow up with them and look they are writing about them because Google fucking exists

Don't forget to remind her that non-whites aren't allowed to write about white culture, so they're not allowed to write:
-Tolkien-esque fantasy
-Science Fiction
-Wild West Cowboy setting
-Roman times (because for some fucking reason people think romans were white instead of mediterranean)
-Lovecraft
And the majority of other fiction.

Don't want other races appropriating our white culture.

She didn't want to make a comic about asian fairy tales told by people who were just aping shit from a .pdf they had no familial history with.

It's one thing to make a western, or do a WWII movie, or spin Arthurian legend, but it's another to present something as a loving celebration of another culture that's really just a plastic product.

Really a lot of this is proto-Maoist Cultural Revolution.

Honestly, the main reason people shouldn't write about other cultures is mostly because it would be pretty retarded like Megatokyo, not because it's a huge statement about racism and shit. There's always little details in culture like how people interact with eachother or values that always end up westernized and it's kinda cringy to the native people.

If you are well informed then proceed with caution to avoid being retarded.

No. Why? Let me guess, because of GG and /co/ constantly ragging on "SJWs" you think I'm against social justice? I'm all for it, it's just if you haven't noticed Internet SJ can be extremely toxic.
I understand wanting to not mock other cultures, that's where the term "Cultural Appropriation" comes from, like those hipster kids that where war bonnets without knowing the significance. But,s it's gone from that to (if you are white) you can't read/write/learn/be inspired/eat the food of another culture, without it being imperialistic and "appropriative". Yet, at the same time if you were white and you didn't want to touch anything, because it's "ethnic" you'd be called a racist. It's circular logic at it's finest. And, it's unhealthy. I've saw post on Tumblr that were calling for straight-up segregation it's gotten that bad.

And how is one person of one ethnicity writing a person of another ethnicity bad, as long as they research?

I would gladly allow anyone who wants to speak their mind. That's freedom of speech. You fight ideas with ideas. Not cencorship. Even if you don't agree with "hate speech" you can not ban it. Why? Because those in power define what hate speech is. Russia and most of Africa ban promotion of homosexuality. If republicans got in power they would ban the "persecution of christains" like the Davis lady. The moment you kick the stone down the hill there is no stopping it.

Having the freedom to speak your mind means others should to. That's equality. Anything else is just inviting authoritative government that the people, especially the next generation, will push back againt. That what happened during the 60s and 70s after the red scare, and that whats gonna happen now.

I know. Because that person can be a good writer and I'm not calling on people who are able to, nor do I am telling people to not write other cultures.

The thing is, the point of religion is that you can practice it regardless of where you come from. Even if religion is an integral part of the culture of a society, country or whatever, it has a higher status of "please don't take this lightly" than clothing or national traditions.

To be on topic with the thread, cultural appropriation is a fucking stupid notion because the best westerns are made by Italians and the best Japanese films were inspired by westerns (which then became the inspiration for more westerns and Star Wars) but with that said you probably shouldn't write about a subject you know nothing about IF ONLY to avoid looking like an idiot.

Guys, you are completely missing my point. I'm not saying it's important to the world and you can't do whatever you want to do, but I'm saying it is very important and it's more offensive to them to take a religious symbol and corrupt it than a general cultural/national symbol.
As in, the argument about cultural appropiation is that in real life no one gets mad if people want to enjoy other culture's customs and all that shit. Most of them like to share these traditions with other cultures, or food, or whatever.
But when it comes to religion, religious people don't take it lightly. YOU don't have to respect it, whatever. But this is when people would choose others to get that respect.

It's really weird how she could have just said "essay" and come across as a bit more credible.

She doesn't even really talk about cultural appropriation, she questions cultural identity and asks if she is right to write such things while knowing no asian fairy tales.

For that matter I am not defending religion whatsoever nor their practicioners. That is besides the point. What I'm saying is that religious people take their stuff way more serious than their culture. Yes, religion is culture, but it is also separated from national culture.
>>
>>77710262
>I'm saying it is very important and it's more offensive to them to take a religious symbol and corrupt it than a general cultural/national symbol.
Being offended doesn't mean anything. Anyone can get offended over anything.

>No one is going to be upset if you are eating enchiladas, but people would be upset if you use the Virgin Mary as an ad campaign about shoes.
That's their problem, though.

>>My mother was not tucked into bed at night. As a child she nearly singlehandedly raised her baby brother and kept him from starving, from being crushed in the street or dead of neglect. Her violent and resentful father didn’t come to live at “home” with them until she was well into her teens. So she doesn’t have a lot of fairy tales in her head..

Uh, okay?

It is, but in this case it's not just the SJW who are offended.
The thing people hate about SJW is that they are offended by stuff that other people consider dumb at large and no other person cares about.
But people go to wars for religion.

She's mononymous like Plato or whatever.

She's done a lot of stuff for ladyboys fucked bareback, and lbgirlfriends, and ladyboy gold.

Because they thought her comic work looked good and she likes to bring up that she's Asian a lot? They couldn't had know she'd be offended by the job offer before she actually did.
>>
>>77710488
Seems like she'll take some effort to find then.
Just like those Poison cosplay videos I've seen posted here that always end up as pay only bullshit that don't have torrents. But this should be easier to deal with than that.

I mean, SHOULD a writer who just pulls their sources out of google be the person you want writing? No, you should want to hire the people who actually have experience with the culture.

CAN you hire a person who pulls their sources from google to write? If you like their work and think its good, its your fucking money. Honestly just put the good writer in the room with the person with actual experience and let them co-write.

Not if they can't write as well as the Googler.

Don't. Just like later video game releases we're also getting this nonsense SJW ethnicity nonsense mixed into political discussions. Just recently the school board in my country decided that all white children in schools must "be made aware of their whiteness and priviledge" when before it was just "we're all equal, race shouldn't matter".

THANK YOU SIR!
i was waiting for anyone to notice it.
maybe now mods turn this in a stick and delete any other tumblr opinion threads.

Read her article: in summary-
>My grandma was crazy go nuts and grandpa left to go be important elsewhere, so mom was raised in abject poverty and didn't know any bedtime stories. I have no connection to my own supposed "culture". And now I'm not sure if I'm too Asian / Mexican / White to draw some pictures.

Yeah, in middle school, like a lot of children.

Conflating this with fascism is embarrassing.

Not Sweden, Finland, Sweden's little cousin that does every retarded thing Sweden does except a few years behind it.
Recently some girls in some schools were sexually assaulted by their older muslim school mates and the reaction from the school board was to tell girls to cover their arms as to not cause such cultural misunderstandings. Really hate being a teacher in this country these days.

Man, my mom lived in Korea, walked over a mountain to get herself and her younger sibling to school, my grandfather was a farmer and part time lumberjack who drank everyday. She quit school before completing Highschool and immigrated with her family to Hawaii and she still knew a bunch of fairy tales, Korean folklore, and folksongs because she said that's the only thing you could do to keep from being bored and sad at night in the country. Sounds like her mother is pretty privileged.

It's ridiculous liberal Americans who've caused this shit though, by forcing their retarded opinions into the global public sphere via the US-centric media except if you're in Sweden, in which case you really have no-one to blame but yourselves. I mean we've even had discussions in classes about fucking G*merG*te and Anita at my Euro college and you can imagine what the fucking party line from the faculty on that is.

Americans - Please shut your loud-mouthed retards up. I really don't care how, just stop this shit from spreading. It's the same exact thing that happened with atheism, Europe was just gradually and quietly losing its religion to everyone's ultimate advantage, then American fedoras appeared on the scene and have made atheism look like some sort of edgy teenage cult which no-one would want to be associated with. This shit's maddening, you take everything and dial it up to 11.

We literally cannot stop them from talking, we mistakenly gave everyone the right to say what they like.

We also rightfully gave everyone the right to call bullshit on them, and that's really all we can do.
