this article is interesting:
Quoting Eamonn Doyle <d...@d1.ie>:
I can't think of any good reason for a European male to otherise
themselves and present as a minority woman. Why? This is
exoticizing the other, plain and simple.
What about an African male / South American male ? Japanese male ?
He is Dutch - Surinamese as it happens. A minority woman ? Where ?
In whose eyes ?

There is already a dearth of actual women and minorities in the
music game, the last thing we need is dudes pretending to be them.
I'm sure he's a super nice guy, but it's beside the point.
