    Lena Dunham supports that sushi is cultural appropriation

    Lena Dunham has spoken out in support of her old college, where students are protesting the use of “culturally appropriated food” like sushi in its dining halls.

    The Girls creator graduated from Oberlin College, a small liberal arts school, in 2008. In a recent interview with Food & Wine magazine, Dunham called out the “insensitive” use of Japanese food in her alma mater’s canteens.

    “There are now big conversations at Oberlin, where I went to college, about cultural appropriation and whether the dining hall sushi and banh mi disrespect certain cuisines. 
The press reported it as, ‘How crazy are Oberlin kids?’ But to me, it was actually, ‘Right on,’” Dunham said.

    Students at the Ohio-based University began protesting in November about the cuisine served to them, which was sarcastically mocked by the New York Post at the time as "gastronomically correct". College residents – some international students – pointed to the inauthentic use of food, where sushi rice was undercooked and facets of Vietnamese and Japanese foodstuffs were made in a “disrespectful” manner.

    Clover Lihn Tran wrote in The Oberlin Review that Bon Appétit, the food service vendor, “has a history of blurring the line between culinary diversity and cultural appropriation by modifying the recipes without respect for certain Asian countries’ cuisines. This uninformed representation of cultural dishes has been noted by a multitude of students, many of who have expressed concern over the gross manipulation of traditional recipes.”

    Lena Dunham is an unfunny idiot, and so it seems, are the students at her alma mater.

    Cultural appropriation is made up just to make White people seem more racist.

    Lena Dunham was the last straw where I got off the left wing bandwagon. I couldn't believe big time celebrities, people I really admired like Collin Quinn, were sticking up for her after her autobiography came out where she went into sickening detail about emotionally manipulating and sexually abusing her kid sister right up until Lena was 17 (and probably beyond). There's no need to read in between the lines, the pages of the book are photocopied and easily available online, and its right there in her own words.

    "Cultural appropriation." One of our local radio hosts, Larry Wachs, had the best line about that. He was doing a fill-in on a talk station and was talking to a black woman on the phone. He said, "You know what else is cultural appropriation? Light bulbs! White people invented them but I don't see anyone stopping black people from using them."

    Lena Dunham single-handedly set back the global endometriosis awareness and education campaign by decades...I have NO time for her, whatsoever.

    Not sure why anyone would care what this dumb twat thinks but whatever.

    With that said, I'm gonna to go over to Mt. Fuji across the highway from my house and tell them they need to shut down because they're not "authentic" Japanese cuisine. I'm sure I'll get a lot if blank stares.

    "We don't act that way in our country. Only you white fools in America worry about such trivial nonsense" is probably pretty close to what I would expect the owner to say.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Well, better stop eating bread and drinking beer. It's culturally insensitive to the Babylonians.

    I had someone try to accuse me of cultural appropriation for making bannock, which is associated with First Nations here. I reminded them that Bannock was brought by the Scottish...then accused her of cultural appropriation for making Indian Tacos, which use bannock instead of taco shells...
