So they say using ‘bitch’ and ‘ho’ is ironic?

So those who use derogatory and downright insulting terms about wimmin sometimes argue that this is ironic or re-appropriating a word which has been used in the past within racist and sexist contexts.So now men and women use it in a sexist context as if that is putting one ‘up on the man’ as the Americans might say. Well that to me is playing right along with the system. Words and Language like this OPPRESS people. Next time you hear this term in a song or film or read it in a tweet or blog don’t  take it sitting down.

Stand up and make a fuss, make your voice heard that this languange isn’t ok and that you will not sit by quietly and let it go unchallenged anymore!!
