Cultural appropriation is wrong
People should have the personal freedom and choice to enjoy a part of a culture in any way they want.
People can have the freedom to be wrong. It does not change that they are wrong.
In this context, 'Enjoying' foils more serious allegations along the lines of theft or infringement.
People should have free choice over their actions, but they must also be aware that others are freely entitled to be offended by their actions.
Personal freedom ends where one disrespects the culture and tradition of another.
When this personal freedom is used to deliver inappropriate or false information about a culture it should be curtailed.
