The arguments against are too numerous to even list. But also listing them is falling into the trap of lending legitimacy to the entire concept of cultural appropriation. Itself just another dialectic scam to deconstruct our civilization and cause racial strife where there is none.
This is a good time to revisit this event from Ottawa U in November, 2015. A Yoga teacher who was giving FREE classes to people, with extra respect to Hindu culture by not making any spiritual claims herself, was fired. Fired from giving free classes, from Ottawa University. Her classes were also for the handicapped and others who enjoyed tremendous benefit from her classes.
‘There were some cultural sensitivity issues and people were offended,’ says instructor
A yoga instructor who says her free class at the University of Ottawa was cancelled because of concerns over cultural appropriation believes the student union’s issues are misplaced.
Jen Scharf said she’s been teaching a free yoga class for the university’s Centre for Students with Disabilities, which is run by the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa, for the last seven years.
When she checked back in with the centre in September, she said she was told by them the class wouldn’t be happening because some students and volunteers were uncomfortable with the “cultural issues” involved.
