I appreciate your insight regarding some of these terms, Jon. Good analogy with Hermione’s turned reaction to “Mudblood.” Also, thanks for sharing your great shot of the trio’s prints!
this was a good way to put your insite . It was a good idea to prove your point about reactions to the word mudblood and they way people used it towards others
I respect you very highly for your willingness to be open with this topic. It is inspiring. =)
Thank you for sharing!
I appreciate what you said and I understand what you mean about embracing words meant to hurt and degrade. You stated yourself that you don’t say nigger. Why? The reasons you thought of are the same reasons I wouldn’t say queer. I don’t think it’s age I think it’s if you fit in to the group. As a black person( and I am) you can say nigger till you puke likewise if you’re gay then queer is ok. Your artwork is awesome by the way.
OMG!! that foot/hand print thing looks soo cool!! i wish i could fly to LA to see it!!
Thanks for making hearing my sister call me queer or dyke a little less painful! Glad that there are people like you out there!
Thank you for saying that being different isnt a bad thing (you have to accept yourself as who you are). “Play with the cards your dealt with” as my Grandpa would say. Like I know I won’t play hockey, but I play sledgehockey and its almos the same.
