Ao Dais, Hoop Skirts, Cheongsams, Saboks and Other Things YOU Can't Wear For Halloween

So much appropriation here.

I don't think this video could be made in the U.S.A. without someone loosing their job.

 
Fortunately for all that is good and decent, South Korea doesn't care.

May Korea learn from and continue to avoid our society's mistakes.

Asia, as a generally, do not give a flying crap about SJW's sensibilities.  One of the more amusing things is showing photos of Asian cities with large Buddhist populations to American SJW/Progressive types and watch their heads explode.

I also reminded about how the students at Oberlin College were demanding cultural sensitive cuisines, like General Tso's chicken - probably because they did not know that General Tso's chicken could not exist without Americans (Specifically, the US Navy.)!

3 There's a story behind that last comment....I'm sure of it.

4 That makes me wonder... could the "Girls on Film" video be made today? It was so controversial then... for entirely different reasons that are the same in the end.

Only if you title it 'performance art,' and advertise it as a way to stick it to white Christian men.

Peng Chang-Kuei, who created General Tso's chicken, was a chef for the KMT before he opened a restaurant in New York and introduced General Tso to the public.  But he had originally created the recipe as an improvisational dish for several flag officers from the Pacific Fleet who were on an official visit to Taiwan.  He had been made responsible for taking care of the visiting admirals' meals, but the visit lasted longer than usual and it was considered bad form to serve the guests the same dishes more than once.  So Peng created what became known as General Tso's chicken so he would not have to repeat the same recipe.  The admirals liked it very much, and asked Peng for the name of the dish, which he created as well, drawing on a historical figure from Hunan.
