Amazingly well-put.

I once witnessed an incredible episode of doublethink, in which a South Asian woman (who, minutes before, had been swilling Guinness and affecting a bad Irish accent) yelled at me and the people who cooked with me for MAKING CURRY FOR DINNER the week before. Because even daring to make curry was an instance of cultural appropriation and insensitivity; apparently, preparing a delicious and time-consuming curry is racist to do for a special dinner, because calling curry 'special' entails exotifying the curry, hence the culture that the curry is originally a part of.
