Post Reply Would you ever be so enveloped into a culture that you disregard everything to be someone of that culture?

There are people in the world that disregard their cultures to try and become like another, now I know what word your are thinking of; "weeaboo" but it's not just weeaboos but there are all types of cultures in the world that are mimicked however, would you?

In an anthropological sense, I believe it's called 'going native'.

Probably not. I mean.. I really have no attachment to my countries culture so I dont even identify with it.

I mean if I moved to another country I would embrace it 100%, I wouldn't change who I am and what I believe though.

I think when you move to a country you should always give it your all to adapt to the culture, for example, if you went to Glorious Nippon, you wouldn't keep your shoes on before going inside, and you wouldn't sit down before being seated by the person your visiting (if its a formal thing, but even then it still a bit rude).

I mean you don't have to give up anything of your original culture to adapt to a new one. I think people inherently have a embarrassed feeling to their own culture when they compare it others.

What's wrong with loving other cultures?
I'm not just fond of Japanese culture, but Asian culture in general.


I'm Mexican, but there's something so magical about their culture that I just wanna go and live there.
Sometimes, I feel a sense of cultural inferiority when it comes to my own culture.
And its not just Japan, Korea, and China, but here in the US as well.

I don't see why adopting another place culture has your own is wrong.

I wouldn't completely disregard mine. I mean I disregard some parts of it already as it's just not me, but others parts are simply part of me.

Idk if people know, but modern Japanese culture is pretty westernized.. compared to what it use to be 100 years ago.

Well if you are going to live in another country its better to adopt the culture, and I'm not saying just forget your own but as my (Mexican)friend once said "It's easier being an American in America, than a Mexican in America." which really sticks with me because if you don't want to stick out and just be that "foreigner" you need to act like your part of that culture.
