I have unintentionally started an international clash of cultures.
What happens when the values of one culture collide with the values of another culture? Example, one culture places high value on fat babies. Another culture has a stigma attached to a fat child. An individual from the one culture, in a form of endearment, calls a baby “the little chubby one.” In another culture those words resonate as “the one that will be chosen last on any sports team by their peers.”
Which culture trumps?
The bottom line will be me apologizing, one way or another.
