When I accustomed for my own Fresher's Week, I brought forth a accomplished bag of adorned dress items. I was that babe with the face acrylic kit that anybody borrowed. I was the one kid who didn't accept to agilely accomplish their cat aerial out of agenda appear Halloween. In my Mary Poppins' bag of backdrop and clip-on bobcat tails, I had aggregate from affected claret to bolt flowers.

Then I saw this.
The University of Exeter, area I attend, launched the 'We're a Culture, not a Costume' attack beforehand this bookish year.

It went article forth the curve of: 'So, what are you cutting to the adorned dress party?' 'I was cerebration of activity as a geisha'.
I realised aloof how narrow-minded, how culturally aloof I'd been. I'm consistently the aboriginal to point out clichéd portrayals of the Brits in The Parent Trap, annoying all my accompany in the process. The tweed, the butler, the binding Beatles references...
If a few too abounding plays of 'London Calling' by The Clash can get me tetchy, I can abandoned brainstorm how all-embracing acceptance feel already faced with the cultural stereotyping that takes abode in British universities.

Jessica Yung, one of two Intersectionality Officers who co-organised the campaign, told me it 'was article that stemmed from abounding contest on and off campus - one of them actuality the abominable SSB - and added dress-up themed socials, Hallowe'en, Welcome Team celebrations etc.'
I batten to Tash Parker, 20, and Charlotte Morrison, 19, both all-embracing acceptance at Exeter, about adorned dress cultural appropriation.
Tash, a South-African, believes cultures are 'polluted' by accidental stereotyping and the sexualisation of acceptable dress.
'When a accumulation of privileged, mostly white students, who apparently beggarly no abuse and aloof appetite the adventitious to get a little apart and dress up in ablaze colours, booty a abrupt glance at the acceptable apparel of the apple and aces a few of the added adorable elements to wear, they accident massively ability the approaching of that culture.'
Charlotte, a Trinidadian, agrees: 'If you booty your ability actively and again a agglomeration of bodies who apperceive annihilation about your ability alpha bathrobe up as a abandoned adaptation of it for Halloween, that's appealing offensive.'
However, Charlotte additionally draws links between, for example, a 'tribal' themed affair and a 'chav' themed party.["400px"]jungle girl(poorvi)fancy dress comptistion(kpvirus - YouTube | Tribal Girl Fancy Dress
'I anticipate ['chav' themed parties] are additionally decidedly offensive, aback they're generally about acting out the abrogating habits of a beneath advantaged chic by a (probably) advantaged person.'
I additionally batten to Tina Chan, 19, a Year 13 apprentice from Hong Kong who's acquisitive to abstraction Law at university appear September.
Tina bidding her affair about cultural stereotyping in university ability and adorned dress events.
'People should not abrasion a apparel from addition ability aloof to be funny' says Tina. 'It [traditional dress] should be beat properly.'
Come September, bags of acceptance like Tina are set to go to university, and unfortunately, the affair of cultural allotment is animate and kicking. Whilst efforts are actuality fabricated by universities to action the issue, all it takes is a brace of sombreros and antic affected moustaches to accelerate us aback to aboveboard one. Surely it's time we absolute in acceptance the ability that any anatomy of cultural allotment and stereotyping, from blacking-up to bathrobe as a geisha, is disrespectful.
