Who will call these cultural appropriators out?

The hoop earring trend is bigger than ever – but what style should you wear?

There are those – no, seriously, I am not making this up – who say that hoop earrings are cultural appropriation from Latinos.

Who will call out The Guardian on this disguting practice?

  1. Cultural misappropriation is when Afro-Caribbean folk wear clothes, use technology, live in houses, don’t make their children walk miles to get foetid, contaminated, water (which you can stop by sending £3 a month to …). It’s not when a well-fed mother takes her Belsen-stick-like child to a medical centre (coincidentally also resolvable by the magical £3 a month donation) – in my culture the mother would starve first.

    Get with the Zeitgeist — it’s Latinx now.

    As for cultural appropriation, let us start charging all these foreigners a royalty whenever they use the English language. That goes for Yanks and porridge-garglers too, not to mention the Irish and Welsh, so I won’t.

    PS I now owe Germans 2¢ for “Zeitgeist”.

  3. ‘Cultural appropriation’ means,

    “You white people, go away and die.”

    It’s not about earrings or sombreros. It’s about, “You white people, quit existing”*

    *But keep paying your taxes to pay for all our socialist dreams.

  4. As I am reliably informed by one of the few female teenagers that I am acquainted with on Facebook, “The bigger the hoop, the bigger the ho”!

    Cripes!

  5. There’s a reasonable chance that if you scrolled back through Nat Geo you could find some tribesperson wearing hoop earings.
