YES, there are people who find cultural appropriation and the use of slurs “ok” with them.
Does that mean it’s “ok” to do it to EVERYONE, even if they might be personally offended by it?
Also it is very important to realize that your irl friends saying this shit is ok may be out of a desire to not start drama and get into arguments. I fucking detest when straight people say faggot but I have a few straight friends who do and it is just not worth the shit to tell them to stop.
Ummm, I’m super queer and I say faggot all the time. I agree with south park on that one. And to me, most of this stuff is like Voldemort: Fear of the word increases fear of the thing itself. If you take the power away from words they can’t hurt people.
Also you can reverse that argument - just because some people you know have a problem with it doesn’t mean the majority shares their point of view….
^^^ Exactly. ^^^ People need to calm down.
Anonymous asked: you're also a girl and faggot is usually used towards gay men. and if you are getting beaten up by someone and being called a faggot, hearing that word can be quite triggering
Don’t act like “Faggot” has never been used against me, or that I’ve never been hurt. You know nothing.
People will always find ways to hurt you. I like taking the power away from their words.

No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
