So I’m watching this YouTube video and I was wondering what everyone’s opinion was on the following quote regarding respecting culture:

“Because it’s cultural, isn’t it? ‘It’s what we do. You know, it’s part of my culture.’ I can tell you this: cultural acceptance does not mean accepting the unacceptable. It is not part of my tradition, culture, or religion to abuse anybody. And professionals need to wake up and own that as a fact.”

As context, she’s talking about forced marriages and honor based abuse.
