I have officially lost all hope in the future of this country. This country is done for. No president can save us. We are too far gone. I say this not because of this country’s bad economy, foreign policy, and immigration policy (hopefully President Trump will fix those as promised). I say this because of the American citizens who seem to show a significant decrease in IQ levels overtime.
A woman by the name of Sachi Feris has released a blog post in which she tells of how it is problematic that her white, 5-year-old daughter wanted to dress up as a Disney character who is a “Pacific Islander” for Halloween. Just reading this blog made me lose brain cells.
Sachi Feris takes issue with the fact that her white daughter wants to dress up as Moana, a “pacific islander” Disney character who is an inspiration to children all over the country. Feris claims this is “cultural appropriation” and that it could be disrespectful to dress up as someone who has a different culture from your own. She tries to convince her child to either make a new costume selection or to “change up” the costume. Feris suggests to her child that she dress like a “modern day” Moana because wearing clothes that another culture wore could be seen as “making fun” of said culture. So, long story short, Feris gets what she wants and her daughter agrees to change costumes.
But wait, There’s more…
One good thing about this blog entry is that it has a plot twist. The daughter decides she wants to dress up as the infamous Disney Princess, Elsa, who is a white and powerful character. Feris decides that this is problematic as well.
I feel like because Elsa is a White princess, and we see so many White princesses, her character sends the message that you have to be a certain way to be ‘beautiful’ or to be a ‘princess’…that you have to have White skin, long, blond hair, and blue eyes.
This woman then claims to have given the child a lesson on “white privilege”. Finally, after all of this dream crushing, the little girl decides to be Mickey Mouse for Halloween.
You have got to be kidding me. First of all, this is a 5-year-old girl we are talking about. All she wants to do is dress up as her favorite Disney princess. This terrible mother decides to deprive her child of this desire and instead uses this time to indoctrinate her 5-year-old on cultural appropriation and the non-existent “white privilege”.
Secondly, am I not allowed to dress up as “Falcon” from Captain America 2 simply because he is black and I am white? He’s a badass character but, because I am white, I can’t dress up as this awesome character because that could be offensive.
Thirdly, how? How is this offensive? How is this considered “making fun” of someone? The reality is that it’s not. The left wants us all to live in this make pretend world where anyone can be offended by anything. They want to indoctrinate people on non-existent topics. Their goal is to ruin things that all political sides come together on, like Halloween.
