here is the thing, i shouldn’t have to explain to you as to why i as a queer person choose to us the word faggot, because after all if a queer person decides to reclaim the word faggot as i have there shouldn’t be a problem with that. but because i love my followers i will take the time to explain myself publicly.
i used the word faggot left and right without ever daring to use it as a tool of oppression towards other queers, i know the power that words hold and i as a latino queer know too well that many of us queers have heard that word while we’ve been getting teased or beaten, both of which i have endured. when i said “stop being a faggot and go suck a dick,” all i was trying to portray was my annoyance with the ludicrous idea that palestinians are as white as israeli settlers.
i learned since an early age that once i possessed the word faggot and used it on my own terms no longer can someone use that word to attack me emotionally or spiritually and it worked. once i took the word from the mouth of those who used it to try and degrade me to something less than human i felt as though i had gained some power back. therefore, if you or any of my followers find it discomforting to see me use the word faggot which i know i’ll use again (though i promise to use more carefully) then please unfollow me. this is my blog after all and i will express myself as i wish to do so without of course trying to hurt others but if the case ever arises when i do hurt someone, i know you all will be there to correct me and i thank you all for that.
if the person i called a faggot is indeed queer and felt offended please come of anon so i can apologize to you. and for those of you who off anon spoke to me about this issue and took the time to explain your ideas and took the time to listen to mine i do thank you. any who, goodnight. to all those who unfollowed…
