Is the idea of cultural appropriation anything more or less than the outrage of cultural hipsters?

"Stop liking that. You are too uncool to like what I like. You have not suffered enough to like X! And you are doing it wrong too!"

Yes, people like things for silly reasons and there are many deeply horrible people who will end up liking good stuff for troubling to crazy reasons. But call them on the horrible or crazy of their actions and not because they are not part of the right group to like something. I would actually like to discuss this if someone has an opposing point of view.
