Does this mean I need to memorize Beowulf? 

Or learn old English? 

Nope. We take from the Saga of Ragnar. You can't offend the North Men.

Can't do anything British because we will offend someone eventually.

Nope, but apparently we are offending all of the Americans.

And since we already "appropriated" Scouting from the Brits I can't imagine they would be offended if we did so with the Knights of the Round Table.

But hey......... who knows.

Can we appropriate a myth? Won't someone get mythically offended? ;)

Well, based on the current train of thought that the aggrieved party in appropriation are those who were subjected to colonization/subjugation, I think we are in the clear.

All of this is their fault, right?

In today's environment, I would never assume that. Someone, somewhere will get offended and make a stink and BSA will back down. That seems to be the process.

Oh, I agree, which is why I didn't say they wouldn't be offended. But using the cultural appropriation guidebook them being offended is of no consequence.

Just in case anyone isn't paying attention to the whole thread. This is all sarcasm.
