lyntek: (altair)
I have very mixed feelings about people using a culture foreign to their own if it's merely for the sake of having something "ethnic" or "exotic" in a story. On one hand, it's extremely flattering that others are taking an interest -- and if the story is engaging enough, it might even get more people to do the same. On the other, it has so much potential for encouraging stereotypes and spreading wrong information.

I just have a lot of feelingz )

This poster is also awesome. Nabbed from [livejournal.com profile] nothingtrue:



And Altair apparently doesn't really mean eagle, but I'mma stop nitpicking now.
