Wearing a kimono in America is like asking to start a war.

What planet are these permission seekers from?

While I think someone can dress however they please at home, one should be mindful of how you appear in a foreign land and not act disrespectfully. A well-earned stereotype of Americans is disrespecting other cultures wherever they go, like not learning their language despite in the states bitching about illegals not learning English! I agree with deer that you should read up on what to do and what not to do from articles cc culture appropriation.

I think you're referring to the hijab.

I think they might have more of a problem when you go over there and their waifus leave their intimate garments on your floor, ya dig.

No, as long as I look good in it, I'll wear anything I want. I take into account professionalism and other business aspects, but that's about it.

Not really, people just get offended because it's unique to their culture and want to keep it to themselves.

No, and culture appropriation is just a silly concept, especially if your not even in the same country as the culture. It was conceived by people who would have us apologize for anything and everything that rubs someone the wrong way. My use of this item offended you, so noted but that doesn't mean I am going to stop or even have an obligation to.

its fine by me, as long as its not done to be offensive. i don't think a culture can OWN a piece of clothing, anyone should be free to wear whatever they want, as long as they don't degrade it and make it offensive to the culture who normally wears it

people from other cultures get mocked for their traditional wear....
example: they get made fun of for wearing bindis and yet now the same people who made fun of them for it want to wear it themselves as a fashion statement

it's pretty obvious why this is offensive

Well, if the intent in wearing it is to insult and deride, then they shouldn't wear them, and if the intent is benign appreciation, or because it looks cool, why not?

People can get insulted by anything, including people trying to be nice. I don't see the problem if that person isn't trying to cause problems or spread hate.

Everyone has a different fashion sense. Wearing other cultures' garments is included in said fashion sense.
