vangirl: made on request, don't take (Tynai: Protection)
I am a big believer in 'words matter'. I am pretty sure I have ranted many times about how it's important to know and understand the connotations words have and the implications you may unintentionally make when you say things like "that's so gay" or use slurs ~as a joke~, etc. etc.

However, when you, as a privileged person, tell someone in a minority group that they are being *ist or *phobic for their 'oppressive' use of their self-identified terms?

Then you are kind of missing the fucking point.
