Leftist power-tool-----Gay Activists Claim Ugly Mary Jane shoes are 'Cultural Appropriation'

Gay Activists Claim Gucci's Ugly Mary Jane Shoes are 'Cultural Appropriation'
"Gucci is the latest brand to come under fire for “cultural appropriation,” this time for a line of shoes released alongside the fashion label’s Resort 2017 ready-to-wear collection. 
The accused shoes, according to gay activists, resemble shoes popular with punk LGBT scenesters in the 1980s.
The “Mary Jane” style shoes feature huge buckles and straps that wrap around the ankle and lower leg. 
One pair is sort of a cutaway boot, that cages in most of the wearer’s lower leg in a style that looks both hip and like you’d probably get blisters behind your knee after ten minutes of wear.
The shoes are also aggressively ugly. 
And cost just shy of $2,000 per pair.
...Not so fast, say the inventors of Queercore. 
No one said Gucci could the term, and the thought of paying thousands for a pair of Mary Janes just isn’t in keeping with the nature of punk..."
