I'm part Native American (Cherokee and Ojibwe) and I am not at all 'offended'. But if they're feeling really bad, I could take a closer look... just to make sure.

This leopard is offended by the leopard-print thongs. Won't somebody please think of the leopards?

Or the cheetahs?

ringersol: smackledorfer: "Ok but then why is attempted genocide a factor?"

The historical context is what makes the complaint understandable.
Absent that -- if it was, say, a bunch of rich old white guys complaining that yet another Hollywood villain is a rich old white guy?
That would just be indefensible butthurt.

I refer you to your earlier point:

ringersol: There's just two groups disagreeing. Why does one of them have to be wrong?

Eh, I guess I just won't get it. Or your point is purely emotional and that is why you are having so much difficulty explaining a good rule set for when it is justified to biatch about a sexy cultural outfit and when it isn't. I usually find if I can't explain my thoughts on an issue, I need to spend more time on them or admit I don't have a well thought out conclusion.

Ted Nugent thinks he's an Indian.

Sometimes Ted Nugent has thought he was a fire truck. I blame the drugs.

It wasn't a decent Penthouse magazine if it didn't include a couple of lesbian Indians, er Native Americans smoking a peace pipe and then going all Custer on one another. Okay, the Nazi lesbians were okay in a pinch. Just follow their orders exactly. The lesbian chick walking her lesbian pet through the desert on a leash was a little over the top for me. Midwest values, you know.

No one ever said anything about cultural sensitivities back then. Of course, back then, you didn't litter in front of a Native American. Make him cry big.

Leopard print? On a pseudo-North American native costume? That is not a North American animal! It should have been jaguar print preferably paired with pseudo-Mayan costume! Scientifically incorrect is not sexy! Harrumph!

I didn't RTFA, but I'm guessing the person who complained is all sorts of disgusting.
