So, I advocate for “political correctness”, or as I like to call it common decency. I’m also called, like all others who advocate for PC, thin-skinned. I’m constantly told I’m taking things too harshly and being too sensitive.
Here’s where that gets me though. I’m saying “be respectful please, utilize these words”, and people lose their mind over it. Stop policing my language, I’ll say what I want. They get so damned hurt over being asked to stop using mean/harsh/oppressive language.
Well, those of you getting all pissy over “PC culture” and saying that I’m thin skinned, have a listen.
I’ve grown up with people calling me faggot, queer, cunt, bitch, tranny, she-male, disgusting, vile, evil, I’ve been told to die or to commit suicide so many times I couldn’t even possibly attempt to count. I’m called a child molester because I’m atheist, trans and lesbian. I hear people talk shit about my trans and queer siblings constantly. I get to be the butt end of jokes all the time, and I just have to deal with it, day in, and day out. I’ve got some thick fucking skin.
I have spent my entire life getting bullied, beaten up, called names, watching my trans siblings be murdered and kill themselves, being called horrible names.
And yet, when I ask that people at least stop using these horrible names, when I ask for a little bit of respect, people get up in arms and I’m the one called thin-skinned and told to buck up.
Guess what, y’all need to buck up. Those of you who are pissy against PC culture need to get some thicker skin, cause honey, we’ve already got thick skin, we’re just sick and tired of being treated like shit, and I personally won’t shut up anymore.
Boy, doesn’t it suck when oppressed people decide they aren’t going to shut up and stay quiet anymore?
Have a beautiful day sunshines
