i just treat it like any other slur. i avoid using it. my eldest brother is okay with me using it, but even then i’d only use it around him and in private. i still have yet to use it because i know his own personal history with the word. and this “the longer we stigmatize the word the more we prolong the hurtful effects” shit is bullshit. i know quite a few PoC slurs that fell out of use not because the word was no longer stigmatized but rather because gasp people stopped using them.

Guys, don’t make me lock this thread.
I’m just posting in this thread to brag about my very loving relationship.
As an atheist, this is a big pet peeve of mine as well when I see fellow atheists bashing Christianity unprovoked. It’s an even bigger pet peeve of mine when those same turn the debate of atheism vs. theism into a debate of atheism vs. Christianity. It’s an even bigger pet peeve of mine when an atheist claims that everything can be solved through science and that everything that is, was, and ever will be is science. Because if there was a science to morality, then morality would be a very cold,...
Well, I get that, but it felt more like “hey! it was a girl who did this thing which cracked the code! and they’re a girl! and girls aren’t really known for being good at cracking things!” rather than “GURLZ R NERDS 2!!!” And even then both are pretty bad.
Don’t really see why you felt it was needed to say that a woman did it.
