why dont you want to be called a bitch? im pretty sure i've heard you call yourself that before
i don’t want a BOY to call me a bitch or anything at all similar. i have never experienced racism and comparing it to misogyny is stupid but i can’t think of a better example: in the same way that i have not earned the right to use the n word, you have not earned the right to call me a bitch or a hoe or a slut. those are words invented by men to refer to women as less than human, and i am allowed to reclaim that, but any stupid little boy who pulls that shit is gonna get hit. also, in the same way that many black people are still uncomfortable with the n-word, many women would prefer not being called bitches or hoes or sluts, so even if you’re female you better be careful not to hurt your ~sisters~
i don’t like this comparison because it makes it sound like i am saying “bitch” is as severe of a word as “nigger,” which i don’t really think it is, and i’m in no place to make that decision anyway as a white girl, but they’re both hateful words used by oppressors to make people feel subhuman and that’s just not okay with me.
