Different word, but appreciate the contribution nonetheless.

Dadaists, on the other hand, would have a point, since "dada" is not usually used, at least by people older than, say, 2.
Well, I did say a little annoyed, not "upset," and that's really just because Futurism is largely unknown to the masses. Which is understandable and fine, but the annoyance comes from those actually using the term that don't have the first clue about it.

On appropriation, I agree that the less said the better, but imagine if the Italians started chiming in with all of the frankly dreadful things that have been done to their cuisine that is still marketed as "Italian"?
