Cultural exclusivity is the belief that a culture (or in some cases an individual) has the right to an idea and that those that do not meet the culture's arbitrary benchmarks are not permitted to engage in the activities that pertain to the idea in question, very similar to the concepts presented in one true way.

Controversy

  • Cultural exclusivity is sometimes considered warranted for creating certain societal standards that create effective communication and reinforce role essentialism.
  • Cultural exlcusivity is also often criticized as a damaging conservative view when concepts of freedom of information, inclusive attitudes and sustainability are applied.
