Quotes on What’s the big deal with Cultural Appropriation

  • Racism, homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, ableism, are all forms of oppression.
  • The key thing is that oppressed or marginalised groups don’t always have the power to decide whether they want to participate in dominant cultural norms.
  • Cultural appropriation seems to give the dominant group credit for aspects of a culture they’ve taken as well.
  • I would say, if you love another culture, then learn more about it and understand the context and history.
  • We can respect the identity and move away from using unhelpful terms like “ethnic”.
