Fag, Queer, Queen or Bitch?

fag queer bitch
Words are just words. Who cares?

Once I was having lunch with a co-worker after a day of work. We had to go on Sunday to work due to some national celebration. Independence Day. Anyway, we went to lunch and I was telling a story about a friend who fooled around with a former friend with benefit. She was more startled when I was doing the dialogue thing when telling my story and she heard me saying “Faggot” referring to my friend. She was so surprised and, I believe, slightly offended. Right after I paused to have a sip of a delicious watermelon drink, she exclaimed, “Do you call yourselves…hmm.. faggots?”

And I replied, “Oh yes!” then added, “We call ourselves fags, queers, queen, lady, bitch, whore, and more. Why?”

“I don’t know.” She said, smirking. I did know what she meant. So, I continued talking about it. I said to her that it’s the same as when girls call themselves bitches. We do it without any offense. Obviously, I just accept that kind of calling names from friends, and very close friends when we gather in an intimate gathering.

She agreed immediately and started telling a story of her own about the topic.

Sometimes, straight people, regardless of their gender, don’t get that we are humans. We do that same things that they do. We call our friends by names that are used by homophobes to insult us. BIG SURPRISE! They are just words. We mock words by using them. There is no word to harm when there’s no meaning to harm.

I know some people might disagree with this point of view. But, that’s the way me and my gang run things.
