There’s this thing people ask about cultural appropriation a lot and it confuses me
They ask “Is it okay to wear [other culture’s clothes/ornamentation] if you’re invited to an event by people of that culture and they want you to do it?”
Which to me is like asking, “I heard that breaking into your house and stealing your stuff is bad, so, I don’t know if I can accept this freely-given gift.”
Am I missing something?
When people ask this question, I seriously have to wonder if they have a basic sense of what the problem is re: cultural appropriation.
