Winking in Culture
1. Wodaabe Tribe
For example, in the Wodaabe tribe in the Niger area, someone who wants to engage in sexual activities can wink at a person. If the person continues to look at them, they will slightly move their lip corner, showing the way to the bush the person is expected to have sex with them in.
In China, a wink can be interpreted as offensive. Chinese don’t gesture very much and regard a lot of hand movement as excessive. Winking and whistling are considered rude. Eye contact tends to be indirect.
Sticking out your tongue
Many writers have noted some fascinating cross-cultural diversities. For example, in Tibet, sticking your tongue out functions both as a greeting and a sign of respect. In sharp contrast, as noted by Laurie Patsalides and others, the Maori People of New Zealand have historically used this gesture as part of a war chant preceding battle. Contrived to intimidate the enemy, it signifies strength and ferocity (see, e.g., “Non-Verbal Gestures: Don’t Stick Your Tongue Out at Me!” in brighthubeducation.com, 01/28/15).
2. Cambridge Dictionary definiton
Since we are Yahuah's Children, we need to follow what scripture says. It is apparent that the cultures mentioned do not worship I AM, otherwise they would not be accepting to these rudge gestures.
Im not going to go into celebrities who do this on a constant basis. The video attached and the links I provided does this. What I am asking you to do is use your discernment and quit doing thses signals that are displeasing to Yahuah. HE DESERVES BETTER THAN YOU FOLLOWING THE "IN CROWD."
