  • 10:54 @labelle_rebelle "Retarded" is an awful word to use, you know. #
  • 11:48 @BajanDesignerA Hell yes it is. That mural is vile. Could it have been any more stereotyped or over-sexualised? (Probably, but still.) #
  • 13:28 @labelle_r
    "R-ed" is neither a style or a device, it's a hugely ableist, hateful, hurtful word; and a 2nd time is hardly "every" time. #
  • 13:35 @labelle_rebelle You used it in a wholly negative way, and that usage is hateful and hurtful - mental disabilities are not inherently bad #
  • 13:45 @labelle_rebelle When using "retarded" (which means mentally disabled) negatively, yeah, you do say that; like "that's so gay" as negative #
  • 13:52 @labelle_rebelle Though if you say I do it every time, then maybe I SHOULD start doing it every time; FYI, "bitc
    h" is really misogynist #
  • 13:56 @labelle_rebelle That's great, but it doesn't apply to what I'm talking about. I'm talking about your use of not devices, but specific (1/2) #
  • 13:58 @labelle_rebelle (2/2) marginalising and denigratory language. If you wouldn't call sthing "n*gger" then you shouldn't call sthing "r-ed" #
  • 13:59 @BajanDesignerA Yes, and the comparison of women to female dogs in heat is misogynistic and hateful towards women, comparing us to animals #
  • 14:00 @BajanDesignerA Or, rather, more accurately not comparing women to animals, but EQUATING women with animals. #
  • 14:06 @BajanDesignerA Actually, yeah, I think people should. The patriarchy doesn't just hurt women, it hurts mane, too. Same as the rape culture. #
  • 14:06 @labelle_rebelle Considering it when it was posted, it certainly appeared to be directed at me. If it wasn't, then I misunderstood, sorry #
  • 14:11 On "retarded" and why it's hateful:
    #links #feminism #
  • 14:13 On "bitch" and other misogynist language: #links #feminism #
  • 14:17 @BajanDesignerA The equation of women to animals with "bitch" isn't opinion, it's a fact; I'm not saying you can't say it, just that (1/2) #
  • 14:17 @BajanDesignerA (2/2) you should be aware of the total meanings of words that you choose to use. #
  • 14:19 @labelle_rebelle And I'm not saying you can't use "retarded" but one should be aware of the
    language one uses, especially language that(1/2) #
  • 14:21 @labelle_rebelle (okay, now 2/3) is just as hurtful as any racial slur is; if one doesn't use racial slurs because how hurtful they can be #
  • 14:22 @labelle_rebelle (3/3) then why use words that are slurs against people with disabilities knowing they're just as hurtful as racial slurs? #
  • 14:23 @BajanDesignerA Please don'T call me "hun" #
  • 14:29 @BajanDesignerA No worries, I hadn'T asked you bef
