Lance BassGood evening all!

One Remark

  1. If anything, you learn how powerful a word can become once you point at it as forbidden or very inappropriate. I’ve read so many LGTB people depict the word as usual, even more among trans, that the only conclusion I have is that we are teaching the bigots a new word to try to be hateful knowing that –purportedly- it’s considered the uttermost insult. My opinion is that we shouldn’t empower hate forbidding certain words; point at the hatred in the intentions, not the word itself. Because you could be hateful even using the most proper English.
