Winner of the "Dumbest Article of the Year" Award
A scold takes on the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
The complaint? Racist lingerie.
Assuming the article isn't some clever joke (and I sincerely hope that's the case), it surfaces the increasingly popular "cultural appropriation" complaint; a game of gotcha that has little appeal outside of a faculty lounge.
Under the rules of the game, rather than being commended for drawing from other cultures, Victoria's Secret is criticized for exploitation.
We live in strange times.
