porto881 said: I think the lack of cultural appropriation in a society breeds racism. To me its the same as "separate but equal". It encourages people to look at other cultures/races differently instead of as a fellow human. Do some people take appropriation to a racist level? Absolutely. But I think all in all its a healthy part of cultural and societal development. Just my 2 cents on that.
Your 2 cents is racist.
You can try to rationalize cultural appropriation all you want so that you can sleep at night, but when you center the conversation around those who are consuming the culture of others, and not actually taking the time to even attempt at understand the viewpoints of those who make it very clear the implications of what happens when their culture becomes appropriated - you’re completely erasing them from the conversation and are being, inherently racist. Culture doesn’t exist for the consumption of white people who want this #eatpraylove learning experience, and your message, which reads “not letting me have access to your culture is wrong” is extremely entitled - because it, again, centers the conversation around those who are consuming other cultures.
Your entire way of framing this conversation is illegitimate because you haven’t even done the ground work of understanding what the implications of appropriation are to anyone outside of those doing the appropriating.

Well, he’s right. You did make the wild assumption that he actually is thinking about how women feel, when he’s clearly far more concerned with the harasser’s feelings.
It’s amazing the lengths men will go to to dismiss us. I once had a guy say, when I complained about a “friend” being seriously creepy, “I don’t know, maybe you like the attention.” I asked him how he figured that seeing as I was clearly upset about it and he said again that he didn’t know. But he was so damn sure it was true anyway.
