It's sad that you then get a sort of Aboriginal backlash from Green (an Aboriginal language teacher) when the Aboriginals are finally getting their stories told. Yes, we need to be sensitive to one another's culture, but we can also tolerate the things other culture's do in ignorance. Maybe an Aboriginal woman would go sterile (from stress) but surely people from other cultures, male and female, ought to be allowed to take an interest? And I am sure Kidman had good intentions, and isn't that what counts?
Bickering about this sort of thing when there is a mainstream opportunity to embrace different cultures doesn't do those possibilities any good.
