Content notice: this page discusses and links to a transphobic slur being claimed by cisgender people.
Earlier this week I was cruising around on Facebook and ran across this post.
There are seventeen images in the post, decrying use of the slurs
you're a pussy,
just kill me,
like a girl,
that's so gay,
runs like a girl,
what are you,
you're a failure,
nigga or nigger,
This public service ad campaign is pretty high on the list of well-meaning terrible things I've seen.
Like, I won't even talk about how it reuses a few of them, and most of these slurs are things that I can't address on a personal level.
But I really, really don't like to see cis people trying to reclaim a slur that's not aimed at them. And what is this bullshit about femininity? Since when .... what???
