Is there a term for being for and against the view that (only) someone from some group (ethnic, religious, disability, etc.) can automatically talk for others from it?
It's kind of a political and sociological question, so apologies in advance (though philosophers do talk about tolerance and, of course, socio-ethical questions like recuperation).
It seems fundamentally wrong to say that I, e.g. as a woman, can talk for other women merely because I really am a woman. In deed, many women may want someone that isn't a woman to talk for them. By 'talk for' I mean assume a role whereby I am privileged in understanding what it means to be e.g. a woman.
But then again, there probably are commonalities of experience. What is the word for this impasse?
