someone mentioned april fools today, and it reminded me that last year a couple of radio DJs got taken off the air and almost faced felony charges because they told their audience that the local water supply was contaminated with “Dihydrogen Monoxide” and alot of people panicked
Dihydrogen - (two hydrogen)
Monoxide - (one oxygen)
some guys almost got arrested for telling people there was water in their taps.
I completely understand why people want to reclaim slurs, but the bottom line is that the slur you’re reclaiming is still a slur. Whether you’re reclaiming it or not, please keep in mind that using that slur can still trigger plenty of people. When you say or post things, other people can see and hear them and they aren’t always interested in reclaiming that slur that you’re throwing around
"talk dirty to me"
