|Anonymous said: What are your thoughts on self proclaimed feminist reclaiming the word "bitch" or "cunt"?|
i dont understand why anyone who has an understanding of how those words are used against women would want to reclaim them, to see them or hear them ever at all . also we dont have the institutional power to reclaim them except on a super individual level and even then youre gonna use them referring to yourself in public or only in private??? like if theyre said in a public domain which is usually the case even if its only in reference to yrself theyre being heard and comprehended in their traditional way by others most likely and thats not ok…the history and social context and all the trappings of the word are inextricable..just bc someone has personally reclaimed them doesnt change any of that..i know its suppose to be a personal thing but nothing is personal and i always see these reclaimed slurs publicly announced which allows these reclaimed slurs to fall into the wrong hands..i dont get it at all and its some liberal bs and it also takes privilege to reclaim them i think??? and like a lack of intersectionality like it reminds me of slut walk nonsense like privileged white girls w the word slut scrawled on them when they will never experience the worst end of sex shaming and misogyny bc of the relative protection their other privileges offer them ?? we have no time for individualism, if it doesnt work collectively i dont rly fuck with it
