I'm having an incredibly nourishing discussion with comrade @piponfishing about the above topic. Some points they gave me, as an easy way to decide if something is appropriation are:
1. Will people think I (a white person) came up with this?
2. Does me doing this redefine its origins/usage in other people's eyes?
3. Are marginalized people safely able to openly do what I am doing?
This is very simplistic, and appropriation is incredibly complex, but this is a very good way to quickly determine if something is going to be harmful or not.
@Wewereseeds This is a highly satisfying and useful framing compared to others I've run across, thank you for passing it on
@Wewereseeds And thank you especially to piponfishing but I wasn't sure about @ing them in further, I'm still learning some fediquette compared to twitiquette...
