Now that I've learned this, I could say something about appropriation if the subject comes up. I suppose it would be saying not to do as I did. My brother has a dragon and a yin/yang symbol on one leg, and the heraldic device of a samurai house on his chest. Our family is not Chinese or Japanese. I'm curious to see what he says.
I wonder how appropriative it is to grow tea roses and China roses. They were certainly a colonial import to Western Europe and America. My garden has a mix of flowers that came from Europe, Asia and Africa, and some that were native to the Americas. I've heard many stories of European explorers discovering plants that people who lived in the area had known all about. China roses were already highly hybridized before they came to Europe, and some had names like 'White Pearl in Red Dragon's Mouth' and 'Tipsy Imperial Concubine'. They were renamed to European names. I'm not going to change my garden. I'm just musing about the subject.
