WE ALL LIVE IN AN ONION WORLD: The Feminist Guide to Being a Foodie Without Being Culturally Appropriative. And if you don’t want to give hits to crazy people, the gist of the article is that if you enjoy the authentic cuisine of other traditions this means you’re “culturally appropriative” which is bad, because, you know, we’re all born with our cuisine engraved in our DNA, just like our language and our religion.  (Removes tongue from cheek before it pokes through.)  FORTUNATELY I’m an American.  Being culturally appropriative IS our culture.  We take other people’s food, clothing and entertainment traditions and we make it bigger, better and more amazing than the original culture could try.  And the feminist guide can put that in its pipe and smoke it!
