This is how extreme things get. In Japan, if you are involved with festivals or the International Centers, often someone will try and get you into a Kimono. Take a look at what the Boston Museum of Fine Arts did. It is not so different from Art In Bloom here In MN….Here we do flower arrangement to match paintings. What they did in Boston promoted many many screams of protest. I think that it is a good example of the ridiculous state we have gotten into about things where people are just looking for any bizarre and extreme reason to shout about something. It is really sad that what could have been an enjoyable experience for young women to feel what it was like to wear a Kimono got turned into this belligerent kind of verbiage. .
