So apparently cultural appropriation only matters if it’s an American culture! Good to know!

Seriously, I see people getting up in arms over white girls in war bonnets - and that’s fine, that’s as it should be. I see people getting up in arms over people portraying Ratonhnhaké:ton with a warbonnet when he’s Mohawk, not Plains, and that’s fine and as it should be too.

But nobody cares that they put Aboriginal Australian trappings onto a European animal? Specifically a European animal that was introduced here, became feral, and destroyed a huge portion of the ecosystem Aboriginal Australians depended on to survive?

No one?
