A guy of non-Irish/non-Scottish decent show up at an event wearing a kilt. Would you see this as cool or silly?
If worn correctly and not done as a gag. I would complement them. To insult them or call it silly is just a sign of immaturity.
Kilts are always silly regardless of who's wearing it.
If it's worn correctly, fine.
If it's one of those dumbass "utilikilts" I'd shit in his coffee.
Those are so stupid!!
It depends on the event
He can wear a kimono for all I care.
As long as it is NOT worn in jest I would show with respect regardless of the historical accuracy of its construction. I would not seek to judge someone with African, Asian, European or Middle Eastern dress. They are clearly identifiable and would obviously represent an effort on the where his part to display their attachment to a culture.
I see it silly no matter what race or ethnicity someone is. If you aint from Scotland nor have connections with Scotland, its silly.
Wait, I thought it was racist to dress up like other cultures. We're not allowed to be Indian or African-American, but Irish and Scottish is ok? Hmmmm.
I suspect that this poll seeks to identify cultural sensitivity to Euro/Arab/Muslim/Afro/Asian clothing identifiers.
Actual Scottish person here; I say it's cool, so long as we're talking about a proper kilt. If it's one of those modern fashionable things like the utilikilt, well that's a bit daft really.
No up skirt photos please.
In Portland it would be seen as normal....in fact...it would be expected that he would have shown up riding a unicycle and also wearing a dearth Vader mask while playing the bagpipes.
⬆️ I can confirm this. Lol
Must be something in the water.
I kinda think it's cultural appropriation tho.
Kilts aren't costumes. They are taken very seriously and represent family ancestry going back many generations. If worn seriously, yes but if worn casually or in jest, not a good idea.
If it was worn correctly, I would compliment him on his outfit and then look under the kilt. I've wanted to find out the answer to that question.
