why are people I enjoy arguing about slurs oh my god.
I am going to give my two cents I think. Maybe.
I am extremely against the demonization of words because of preconceived definitions. I mean really lets think about this, phonetically the word “fag”
Is almost identical to the word “bag”
but one of these words is horrible and ‘triggering’ to some people and the other is something that you put your groceries in sometimes.
really in the end people need to get over the idea of “slurs” and “bad words” because all of this talk about intent and use of words and everything is just silly and dated!
regardless of all that, even if I started calling gay people something completely different butintendeditto be a slur, it would be the same thing! like when people say gosh darn instead of god damn it, the intention is exactly the same so maybe instead of jumping on people for using slurs you should jump on the people who intend their words to harm.
looking at you here caitlin.
I’m pretty sure bag is a bad word to many DDR players sir, I am triggered on their behalf.
