Thanks for posting the link to the article. It's an interesting point of view. It's likely the author didn't chose the accompanying image of Beyonce; it's more likely to have been chosen by one of Time's editorial team, with or without discussion with the author.

We're all thieves, David. And its a good thing. without everyone ripping everyone else off we wouldnt have any creative development. I am an architect, we are one of the creative fields that encourages plagiarism. But then again I've had too many martinis and decided to go on the internet... either way we pull off black lady culture better than black ladies.... TRUTH.

O right! Mary J Blige and Nene Leaks et all wear afros and have not appropriated Swedish Blonde locks.

Huh? What might that be? I'm also confused because I don't see that many white gay men, at least in my circle, appropriating black female culture. Now gay black men -- that's entirely different.

This really pissed me off as well. By her logic, I should be enraged that effeminate gays are stealing my female "culture" and I should be guarding all the mysogeny directed at me jealously! FAIL! WTF? How about a bit of tolerance for a change? There is plenty enough hate to share for everybody. She can have all of mine.

Blonde hair is not cultural. It's more of a social beauty standard now.

This is a good article that points out truths and flaws to the original op ed and reactionary pieces.

I didn't say blonde hair was cultural. I said it is a factual genetic trait that ONLY belongs to the very specific genetic group that the person writing this article pointed out as "stealing" yet in order for "her" group to have it it has to be "stolen" she's so blind to the vastness of "ethnic plunder" and that EVERYONE does it she's not even capable of seeing that she's doing it while she's rant NOT TO DO IT. Her article is TOTAL GARBAGE and IDIOT JOURNALISM written in the most one sided jealous slant possible. This woman is a CLOWN.

Agreed- the author of that article was very off, she does have a point that there is some misogyny and racism in the gay community but... The Beyoncé machine includes Alexander MacQueen who does happen to be white and gay- we should be moving toward togetherness and unity and not divisiveness.

If the author thinks Beyoncé is going to be an international superstar still wearing that Tinka Knowles bullshit........girl....
