Here we have an advocate for Islamic arranged marriages demonstrating that children can consent to sex.

I don't think cultural appropriation is necessarily a bad thing. Feminists and hardcore SJWs tend to say that it is. I guess everything we do would be considered appropriation according to them lol. I'm literally appropriating British culture while I'm typing at this very moment, as I'm using the English language to type.

Yes lol. Lots of feminists and SJWs do. Everydayfeminism and Jezebel have quite a few articles speaking about it in a negative light and it isn't the first time I've met people of that belief.
Go on any dreadlocks tutorial made by a white person, on youtube, for example, you'll find a bunch of dislikes and comments calling it "cultural appropriation".
A few examples of that:

I don't understand why these white people should feel guilty for getting a certain type of hairstyle.

Cultural appropriation in the context of a social justice warrior is first world problems, or severely inflated non-issues.

Do you think it's good?
Adapting things from other cultures into your own can have many positive results.

Do you think it's bad?
It's bad when you've adapted so much that you've lost your original identity, like for instance a "Weaboo" or a person who so indulged into Japanese pop culture that they are thinking about getting plastic surgery to change their eyes shapes, and bleach their skin milky white, wearing circle lenses, and long straight black hair pieces, like a total transformation into a Japanese pop idol abandoning their own identity.

What do you think are the negative/positive aspects of it? Discuss.

Negative: Adapting the negative aspects of a culture into your own can be very harmful.
for instance, I think it's ridiculous to see young people of other cultures adapting black thug culture because to be honest that's an aspect of black culture that even blacks despise, so to watch others mimic that because they think it's cool hip hop culture (which is a respectable culture within black culture) it's like they are doing it wrong, and it's very cringey to witness, at least it is for me.

Positive: sharing positive aspects of culture can promote education, understanding and appreciation and make positive connections between cultures.
For instance food, sharing food from other cultures is one of the best ways to bring people together and appreciate the similarities and the differences between the cultures. Music, fashion and dance as well.

If it is used as a Halloween costume, used in parody, or used how it is meant to be it is fine. If it is used to degrade a culture it is not ok.

I believe cultural appropriation is good to the extent insofar as you respect the culture to which it relates to. For some cultures, languages and dress can mean a lot to that particular culture and I believe when one engages in such said culture, one must be careful to not be offensive. The negative aspect I see is when people not of that culture and is temporarily ignorant of that culture using words or slang words to fit in without actually being accepted in said culture.

I like how you isolated blacks "thug culture" when Latinos and Asians have "thugs" within their cultures as well...What is wrong with some of you white people of this forum? You do realize there are criminals of other ethnic groups as well.

Cultural appropriation in the context of a social justice warrior is first world problems, or severely inflated non-issues.

Adapting things from other cultures into your own can have many positive results.

It's bad when you've adapted so much that you've lost your original identity, like for instance a "Weaboo" or a person who so indulged into Japanese pop culture that they are thinking about getting plastic surgery to change their eyes shapes, and bleach their skin milky white, wearing circle lenses, and long straight black hair pieces, like a total transformation into a Japanese pop idol abandoning their own identity.

What do you think are the negative/positive aspects of it? Discuss.

Negative: Adapting the negative aspects of a culture into your own can be very harmful.
for instance, I think it's ridiculous to see young people of other cultures adapting black thug culture because to be honest that's an aspect of black culture that even blacks despise, so to watch others mimic that because they think it's cool hip hop culture (which is a respectable culture within black culture) it's like they are doing it wrong, and it's very cringey to witness, at least it is for me.

Positive: sharing positive aspects of culture can promote education, understanding and appreciation and make positive connections between cultures.
For instance food, sharing food from other cultures is one of the best ways to bring people together and appreciate the similarities and the differences between the cultures. Music, fashion and dance as well.

I like how you isolated blacks "thug culture" when Latinos and Asians have "thugs" within their cultures as well...What is wrong with some of you white people of this forum? You do realize there are criminals of other ethnic groups as well.

I hadn't read that post, but you're right about that. It also seems to be quite American-centered. Thugs aren't exclusive to black culture and the US. If you go to the UK, you can find a bunch of chavs for example, in the South (which I live in) of my country, you can find a few thug-wannabes as well. It would have been better to just leave the term in a vague manner and label them as "thugs" rather than labeling it as "black thug culture".

ew, your unnecessary combativeness is showing, if you're offended that's your problem. I will use "black thug culture" with all intention in any context I please, look forward to it.

"Combativeness?" LOL

It's not my fault your lack of proficiency in the english language is imperative. It is easy to make a generalization on an entire ethnic group because you have personal biases towards that ethnic group.

Do you celebrate St Patrick's Day? if yes, then don't. You aren't accepted. Stop your cultural appropriation.
