(Jumping off from Don Enrico's post)

It's also very common among populations where blond hair occurs more frequently for people to artificially make their hair blond. I'm not sure what culture she's being thought or assumed to be from, or what she is supposed to be appropriating.

My hair was blonde as a child, but has long-since darkened to brown. Does that mean I've been culturally "dis-appropriated"?

Cultural appropriation is just a stupid term invented to give SJWs something else to whine about.
