It is your right as a sapient being. Don’t let any idiot make you feel bad because they tell you otherwise. They are lying.

Appropriate away!

You have an entire planet, and hundreds of thousands of years (at least) of ideas and clothing and art to choose from. Pick the good. Reject the bad. Make yourself the best you can be.

Perhaps they will encounter a planet on which the most advanced species is similar to a bonobo. Or perhaps rather than encountering a planet like… Read more »
