You are conflating two different things: my own behavior and general principles.
I made a point of saying that I am much more willing to indulge an individual's irrational feelings than I am to validate a general principle based on similar irrational feelings. Personally, my taste in fashion is very conservative. I wear white people clothes, I speak like a white person, and I am generally attracted to Western aesthetic sensibilities. So I am unlikely ever to be told that I am appropriating someone's culture.
If someone tried to say that one of the painfully white things I like is actually their thing, my first step, assuming that I know enough to debate the point, would be to politely suggest that they may be confused about the history of whatever it is. If they aren't having it, sure, I would probably decide it's much easier just not to, say, wear neckties around that person.
But if a movement rises up saying neckties are appropriated from, I don't know, let's say Native culture, I will debate it's proponents on the Internet, and I will generally oppose efforts to mainstream the idea.
And that's exactly what I was/am doing in the CA thread with respect to hoops. Which, by the way, was brought up by someone on the pro side of the discussion, if I'm not mistaken. I didn't bring it up in order to discredit CA, I argued against it on its own terms because it's stupid.
