This is how Etsy deals with people calling out its featured sellers for cultural appropriation. Clickthrough link for the article and the comment thread, from which multiple comments were deleted while comments were still open and those calling this piece of shit out were repeatedly told go elsewhere to discuss this.
Content warning if you do choose to go to the article: Heaps of white women patting each other on the back for having been Indians in their past lives and having 8% Native heritage which somehow makes everything okay and cultures meld and exchange anyway, okay?!?!?!?!?!? In other words, brace yourselves for a load of bullshit.

Is there a good online marketplace that WON’T pull off such wankery?
