Why Has So Much Mess with Metallica T-Shirts Be Armed?

We see it everywhere. The rock is in fashion. The heavy is fashionable. And no, we do not talk of musical fashion, but fashion. Clothes, go. We see it on catwalks, most followed Instagram accounts and low-cost chains. Metallica, Iron Maiden, Slayer, AC/DC, the everlasting red tongue stones… And, unless you have given us just he has, opened a debate that touches obliquely the eternal controversy about cultural appropriation.

Wear a shirt of a music band us ranks among her fans? Should you do it? That is the question that so many people seem to have response in the last hours. The latest wave of the controversy stems from an article published on the website WeLoverSize, whose author He argues that anyone who does not know or is not a supporter of a particular group should not take his t-shirt. Reactions have not been made wait and has dismissed the author’s intolerant and elitist.

Is true that the article is written in the section «Humour» of the publication and the author herself describes himself as “nazi musical» in the first lines of the article, but many readers have taken it seriously and the debate has jumped to social networks. A debate that highlights the concept of cultural appropriation and returns to align positions on the right or not for everyone to wear certain clothing.

Cultural appropriation goes beyond groups heavies t-shirts. Above and beyond. It is curious that open debate about this when other cases of cultural appropriation are much more offensive to certain groups (with or without reason to feel offended, on the other hand). Already many seasons ago that it is fashionable ethnic, meaning that those garments or accessories that take elements from different Western cultures.

The Boxer braids, for example, have been criticized for being an example of cultural appropriation, even modifying its original name in the fashion industry. Isabel Marant She has been accused of appropriating the typical embroidery blouses of indigenous Tlahuitoltepec. Images of instagrammers performing yoga postures We have also considered cultural appropriation of an ancient discipline. Even Lena Dunham has considered that sushi is an example of cultural appropriation.

We could take the examples endlessly: tattoos, pizza, rap, military parkas, the piercing in the nose or the chicken curry. Where is the border of what is ethical to incorporate into our culture? What’s more, is there an ethical border in all of this? Should you have it? Members of a cultural group is entitled or, as for heavies, fans a band t-shirts to feel offended?

Are many questions for which there is no clear answer. Perhaps the only reality is the same right to have someone who has never heard Master of Puppets to wear a t-shirt from Metallica purchased in Pull & Bear a real fan of the band to feel offended by this.
