If you don't take the time to learn how to pronounce someone's ethnic name, don't complain about their broken English. English is a hard language to learn as a secondary language and you should never make fun of someone for giving effort.

klingensmithle : I have a question about cultural appropriation that by looking at your account I think you can answer. I know this is a stupid question but is it appropriate to wear clothing or styles from another culture when you're in a place were the culture is used or you're in their place of worship or something like that- is that like a sign of respect or is that not appropriate? I've never been sure and I've really been wondering//
ms.brownfeminist : @emiklingensmith well I live in Artesia in California right in the middle of little India, but I wouldn't wear the bindis or their traditional clothes because I am simply not apart of that culture, it doesn't matter if it's around me. Now cultural appreciation, which I am all for, would be me learning about the culture and customs and dive into the history of the culture still staying in my lane and not wearing their clothes because again I am not apart of that culture. Now as far as being in a place of worship, unless the religion/culture requires that you wear a certain attire to even be in their religious space that would just be respecting the culture/religions rules but it's never to the extent of wearing bindis or headdresses (which are the most commonly appropriated pieces of clothing) it's usually more to the extent of covering up more, not wearing certain shoes, not wearing certain clothes. Does this make sense? If some parts still aren't clear i'd be happy to explain it in a clearer way ☺️
klingensmithle : Okay, I understand a lot better now, thank you so much!!!
ms.brownfeminist : @emiklingensmith you're welcome 😉

This is a first, finally got something with my name on it, and it only took 20+ years! #coke #ethnicnames #thatsmyname

stephv__la : It literally got to the point where I knew the reason they hesitated was because they got to my name at the bottom of the list so I just blurted out my name before they got a chance to pronounce it wrong. I always got the name I hated for me "Stefania" or "Stefana"... Like can you read?
that_1_jw_guy : At least your first name is easiest. For some reason teachers couldn't get my five letter first name down... Smh and yet they can say "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"
k_spence93 : None of you people know the pain like I do. Posers.
iwillbelieveinme : Tell us brother @k_spence93 preach!
k_spence93 : Sniff* wipes tear off eye* Well, There's a reason I don't spell my name out on my username. Teachers would look at my name and ask "were your parents drug addicts?" Its painful...so painful. @stephv__la Your name is so easy!!!
iwillbelieveinme : Take your time brother @k_spence93 we're all with you here. Thank you for coming up to the podium and speaking
stephv__la : Dude I'm so sorry 😢 teachers were lame. I know it's easy. You'd think they'd mislook the A.... BUT THEY DIDNT. only once, once in my 13 years of school life did I hear my name pronounced correctly. In kindergarten no one could pronounce it so I just went the American way "Stephanie". People wonder why I don't go by Stephania. Stupid kindergarteners 😒

This barista is probably thinking: *I'll just call out "skim latte extra hot", easier than that name* because I used my actual name today, not a simplified version of it. I was just in this kinda mood like "no I'm not Naz, Nat, or Lance (yes I've been called Lance...). My name is Nisren, deal with it"💁. So tell me, what is the wackiest name you've had written on your coffee cup? Mine has got to be "Misery". #marxinescafe
onceuponakitchen : @sadiemadlyn lol that's just pathetic 😂
onceuponakitchen : @heba.shawkat because Heba is SO complicated, it's 2 syllables damn it! 😂
piecebypeacedoula : That's very sweet, thank you 💞
noraagha_ : I just spell my name out to them now (they still get it wrong though) but I always get noro, nori or Laura
sadiemadlyn : @onceuponakitchen People I've known for *years* still call me Sophie. But it's all good- I still love most of them. Again, my name Sadie.
onceuponakitchen : @noraagha_ Nori hahaha that's amazing 😂
onceuponakitchen : @sadiemadlyn wow, you keep on correcting them Sadie! It's never too late. I went through all of high school and a bit of primary school with people saying my name wrong (Niz-ren, it should be pronounced Nis-reen) I was too shy to say anything but now I'll correct anyone anywhere who pronounces it wrong lol.
mundane_matters : 😂😂😂 normally people can't call my name either. Especially when they try to be a smart ass, they all me darling. So annoying

iamemilyking : You're last name is the coolest. It's what The Bride of Frankenstein would be called if it was filmed in this century.
zillahkatz : @iamemilyking I effing love you. And PS - the first day I took the school bus ever (in kindergarten), someone asked my last name. Result - being called Bride of Frankenstein. True story.
iamemilyking : Kids are cruel. I was Emily Polack (maiden name: Bullock).
allisonscurci : Bahhh! Love it! I got the bride of Frankenstein thing too. It's a great original name-not many Breidensteins around.
zillahkatz : @allisonscurci Cuz - If you ask any German, it's not even common in Germany! Weirdly, there are a bunch up in Ogden UT!??

euchlid : Can you find things with your name if you go to Pakistan? I can only find things with Astrid if I'm in the Netherlands. Also, being as it's a Swedish name, probably there too. Between myself and two sisters only one got a shot at souvenir mugs (Nicole, or Monique ?) lol
drive_by_fruiting : @euchlid -- I can't even find my name in Pakistan! It's a made-up name now. It has an added "a" to a somewhat uncommom name and was transliterated incorrectly. I used to be really upset about having such a messed up name when I was younger. But now it all just makes sense. It couldn't be any other way.
euchlid : I love your name, it's wonderful and makes a great nickname too!
drive_by_fruiting : Awww, thanks, @euchlid ! It has definitely shaped my identity.
