The latest “trans” trend could be a problem for the left. “Transracial” is emerging as the new thing in the trans world, but isn’t this “cultural appropriation”? The left freaks out if someone copies another race’s look or culture calling it “cultural appropriation”. Halloween is usually the time when the leftists freak out if someone dresses like an Indian or a Mexican. If a white woman wears cornrows, it’s called cultural appropriation because, according to the left, only black women are supposed to be able to wear their hair like that.
Apparently, the transracial trend is catching on. Facebook pages are popping up with “transracial” people coming out to say they feel like they are a different race.
So because someone FEELS like they belong to another race then it is what everyone is expected to believe?
Remember Rachel Dolezal (pictured on the right below)? Dolezal was born white but identified as black and portrayed herself as such. She was even elected the president of the Spokane, Wash. chapter of the NAACP before she was exposed as a fraud.
Liz Warren could be considered “transracial” because she claimed to be Native American most of her life.
Now the latest trend is to be “transracial”:
USA Today reports:
Ja Du, born a white male named Adam, now considers himself a Filipino.
He even drives what he calls a Tuk Tuk, an Asian-derived vehicle used for public transit in the Philippines.
Ja Du is part of a small but growing number of people who call themselves transracial. The term once referred only to someone (or a couple) of a one race adopting a child of another, but now it’s becoming associated with someone born of one race who identifies with another.
Ja Du says he grew up enjoying Filipino food, events, and the overall culture.
“Whenever I’m around the music, around the food, I feel like I’m in my own skin,” he said.
“I’d watch the History Channel, sometimes for hours … nothing else intrigued me more but things about Filipino culture.”
This is a pickle for the leftists because they usually cry “cultural appropriation” when someone copies another race.
How will they deal with this twist?
