No, islamic extremists don’t really hold a candle to all that.
pushmepullme replied to your post: Halloween (holiday) Diabetic MicroAggressions: People feigning hurt feelings when you refuse their candy.
which is worse though, the feigning hurt feelings or “oh, you poor thing!”?
Both of them suck, 1) cus omg keep your weird fake guilt away from me and 2) cus i wasn’t looking for pity i just don’t want to eat any of your goddamn candy.
Word reclamation is awesome. It really is. But it’s not word reclamation if you continue to use those words negatively or in order to insult people. I can reclaim the word “bitch” or the word “cunt” and I do reclaim the word “queer”. However, my using those words as insults or my lashing out at you and calling you a “cunt” would still perpetuate bigotry. If I say I’m a bitch and a queer and fuck you I’m proud of that… that is word reclamation. Turning around and telling you to “stop being such a bitch” would be perpetuating misogyny, whether or not I’ve decided to reclaim those words.
Similarly, just because you may have reclaimed words doesn’t mean anyone else has, and even “lovingly” calling someone a “cunt” who isn’t comfortable with that kind of word reclamation is still not word reclamation and it still perpetuates misogyny.
Reclaim words and expressions for yourself whenever you feel comfortable doing so. Don’t use word reclamation as an excuse to perpetuate hatred.
The bolded bit.
THAT’S COOL IMMA OFFER YOU SOME IPECAC AND BE PISSED WHEN YOU REFUSE IT.

whether Beyonce is pregnant or not I don’t feel like speculating about it just yet because I’m not going to participate in the mass policing of women of color’s bodies
