  •   knot.sure Now if you were to say no one should ever use that word because of it's seedy history, well, I still wouldn't agree with you, but I would respect your choice of opinion a bit more. So try and respect mine. Taking the word back should encompass everyone's choice to take it and re-use it in a positive light. No exclusions. 5d
  •   m.myut @knot.sure it's not your place to use that word. Period. 5d
  •   snwblck Was it my or your ancestors that literally took my people brought them here, enslaved them, called them niggers, lynched them, and then built a system of oppression that still affects us today? But you wanna use the word? Black ppl using it is reclaiming the term. It is offensive when white ppl use it. The fact that you are even trying to use your voice to overpower what me and my people CONTINUE to experience shows how much you know about racism. I don't respect you because you have shown with your usage of the word that you don't respect us. So like I said, it's not your word. I'm not here to compromise and make exceptions because as seen in history, give an inch and the oppressor takes a mile: you do not understand what it is to be seen as a "nigga" but you think you have the right to use it? Fuck out of here. You'll have to die and be reborn black to truly understand. Don't bother muttering up an asinine rebuttal as the one who just poorly delivered: I don't argue or debate with ppl that don't have the capacity to look at situations beyond themselves: it's not about you and WHAT YOU FEEL. You are not being oppressed by that word. Have you ever been standing in a deserted street waiting for a bus and a pick up truck full of aggressive white men rolls by and says "hey nigger!" I beg you haven't. I have. And that's why this is my stance: don't ever try to speak over me or any other oppressed person of color. Ever. Goodbye. Enjoy your ignorance away from conversations that have to do with blackness. Something you will never understand. @knot.sure 5d
  •   snwblck Talking. About some blinded by racism. You're blinded by pure stupidity and white priveledge. Go drink some water, get your vitamins and think about ways to improve your intelligence level because something is obviously missing. 5d
  •   knot.sure Why don't you try and take a moment to understand my position before completely condemning it? I'm not the first person to feel the way I feel and I most definitely didn't derive these conclusions myself. There's not a chance that you're going to be able to convince me I'm racist or make me feel bad for utilizing the word nigga. And if you think for a moment that a white person can't sympathize with the plight of blacks', then I truely feel sorry for you, trapped in a cycle of hate, condemned to repeat history at your own peril. If you truly want to grow in your understanding and wish to pursue a legitimate discussion about race relations, minus the insults, feel free to DM me. 5d
  •   knot.sure Yeah you know what's missing? Hate. I don't hate you because you're black. I don't hate you because you have a different opinion from me. I don't even hate you because of your hatred for me and what whitey did to you. I just want people to get over their hatred. You'll never be over it... until the day comes when you decide you want to move beyond hate. Racism is alive and well but it doesn't have to live in you. Try some self reflection and avoid pointing the finger at a girl who only wants to understand and be understood. Nite! 5d
  •   snwblck The problem is not hate here. I never said its hate and I never even said that you are racist. So these are your own feelings. Don't project that onto me. I simply said I do not respect you. Reason being, you are clearly living in a delusion where race doesn't matter and your priveledge doesn't exist. To the extent that you can even argue for your right to use a word you have no business using. It's all about you. How you feel race relations are. How you feel you should use the word. The bigger picture you see is all fantasy-- I'm focusing on reality. You don't want to understand. Otherwise, when I first explained to you why you should use that word-- you wouldn't have had the response you had which is-- I'm right, you're wrong, I can use this word as long as black ppl can use this word. Don't put words in my mouth. You took what you wanted out of what I said, clearly and your stance is not changing. Sympathizing and truly understanding the power that word has even today, and what it has meant and what it will mean in the future is completely different and you have shown thru this argument how your priveledge and your feelings matter more than my voice and the voice of every other person that understands what that word represents. Racism doesn't live in me. Make no mistake about it. I'm just not down to make exceptions. So, save your delusions for someone who isn't pro black. Cause I am. 4d
  •   snwblck And we don't have to chop it up. Me saying you are unintelligent is not an insult but an observation which is evident thru your stance in this. That is what is really insulting here. I'm not here to convince you or anyone about my experiences and the experiences of many before me/ others atm/ and those in the future. You're tripping. I hope you wake up soon. Living in a post racial fantasy isn't a privilege that I have. Enjoy it while you can. 4d

id_magazine Keen to shift the hegemonic narrative around dating apps, we'd like to weave your stories into our investigation into how, why and when the LGBTQ community swipe, connect and hook-up on their phones. To take part, comment below and join the discussion. 1w
  •   kitofoti Funny how the question 'why' never really occurred to me before. I guess it makes it easier for guys to connect, especially in rather small cities (I myself live in a 100k city in the Czech Republic) where the likelihood of meeting isn't high. I also believe that for some, online dating apps take the pressure off a bit, although conversations often lead to exchanging intimate pictures etc. which, in my opinion, adds a lot of pressure in the end. Personally, I met friends on Grindr, but it was never a long-term relationship. I'm off the app now. 1w
  •   kashclouds Because I don't know which girls are straight lol 1w
  •   itlot Because there is a button for 'I don't want to see or be seen by straight people' which sadly doesn't exist in real life 7d
  •   joshjeffrey1 Because even in 2015 it's still ridiculously hard to meet young gay people in real life. 6d
  •   imjustapieceofshit I've been rejected by a gay-looking straight girl. I lost my ego, my confidence since then... It was rough.! 6d
