I don't agree that there are non-harmful examples of cultural appropriation. The appropriation by itself is transgressive. Conflating appropriation with cultural exchange is di honest as it misrepresents the issue. There are certainly less-harmful examples, but less harmful is a lot like less-lethal in that it's still harmful.
could you describe how you feel about a few actions?
And there's the thread in a nutshell.
1. I'm not the person so ask about this. None of these examples relate to me, and you'll get the same answer you'd get if you wanted to talk trans issues. Go find those groups, go find the people who are writing about this from there experience and learn. Hell, even if I was a perfect ethnic mix I still wouldn't tell you to come and ask me for the same reason i wouldn't want you to ask me about global warming. I'm not remotely qualified to discuss this on an academic level.
2. I don't, based on your posts in this thread, think you're interested in talking about my opinion. If you want my opinion, that's fine. You haven't earned it, I'm not giving it in a thread shot through with trolls, and I'm not keen on playing Q&A either. If you want empirical answers and learning, go back to #1. If you want my opinion, I dunno, suck it up?
3. You've been self-contradictory, have misrepresented the nature of the discussion, and tried to derail it by insisting we have a discussion about the use of the term rather than accepting that, for the purposes of this informal thread the definition we were using might not be the one you were used to using. Then you got mad about it. Earlier in this thread you intentionally misrepresented what I was saying despite two clarifications. Rather than accept that I personally didn't value your specific opinion on the subject, you cried "racism." Frankly I don't have any reason at this point to assume you'll be remotely charitable, or that you're asking in good faith, and it is 100% your fault why.
