I've always liked philosopher Slavoj Zizek's formulation on cultural relativism: "Today's tolerant liberal multiculturalism wishes to experience the Other deprived of its Otherness (the idealized Other who dances fascinating dances and has an ecologically holistic approach to reality, while features like wife beating remain out of sight)."
