The cultural appropriation game is strong here. Americans calling tartan “flannel”.
It looks real good, but plaid and flannel come before you know. Kilts xD Of course, America
Can my boys tie flannels around their waist?
Thank you so much for this! I’m glad that the Limelight style is starting to grow. (Soon it might even be better than Ink!)
I agree! It’s a shame “better than INK” isn’t that high of a bar
Yay thank you
Speak them facts! I would prefer in they gave us actual tartan.
So it would be okay to take a sari into American culture, call it something different and pretend Indian people didn’t invent it? The pattern is distinctly Scottish and should be identified as such. In Scotland, different families have different colours for their tartan. Episode should acknowledge that the pattern is Scottish
But they never said it wasn’t Scottish? I feel like you’re just bashing them for no reason? I’m not going to disagree with you because Americans definitely steal stuff and claim it as their own, makes me ashamed to be born here, but it’s also a dumb thing to be triggered about? I’ve met some Scottish people before when I used to dance and they all called it flannel/plaid. It’s just a different name for it.
Actually, calling tartans flannel started with Welsh farmers, not Americans. They printed tartan patterns on flannel (the material) because it was warmer, then brought it with them when they emigrated to America, where it became a working-class thing. Many were also of Scottish descent, but it also spread to people who weren’t, which is something you can sort of blame English imperialism for.
Americans still take credit for it though, because of course they don’t want to acknowledge that immigrants contribute things.
Thanks for the info.
The point wasn’t even the flannel part. My point (however poorly I may have expressed it) is that we don’t even know the material of the shirt, yet that’s more important than stressing it’s tartan patterned on the name? Weird
Excuse me, but I was commenting on the name of a piece of clothing that I disliked, which was very on topic for the discussion, since it was about said piece of clothing. However, I believe that calling people “little kids” is spreading hate. Please can we keep this about the “flannel”?
